Shudder at the thought

editorial image

On June 24 we attempted, and succeeded in, a great escape from the clutches of the Brussels coterie, by voting in a referendum to attain that victory.

Successful as we were, on television a few days later former leader of the Labour Party, Ed Miliband, bleated that MPs should decide what the departure from Europe should contain.

More pomposity followed when former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg agreed with him.

The British public are aware of the track record of politicians and shudder at the thought of them engaging in such a controversial decision that affects the future of British lives.

Theresa May is on record as saying Brexit means Brexit.

The will of the people will follow her negotiations when, and where, they may ensue.

She is set to obtain the best possible result for Britian.

Her future as Prime Minister rests on her performance in the decisions on the exit from the EU.

It is as essential to her future as Prime Minister as is the freeing of Britain from the grip of the EU is to our country.
