Breitbart Europe: Many of the 17.4 million who voted Brexit — and many of the millions more who’ve since realised that the EU is a towering inferno we need to escape before it comes crashing down on us — are getting very upset about Theresa May’s “worst deal in history.”
But they shouldn’t be, for a number of reasons.
The first and most obvious one is: “What on earth were you expecting?”
It has been clear for months, years probably, that whatever deal Remainer Theresa May cobbled together with her Remainer Cabinet henchmen and her Remainer Civil Servants was going to be a massive betrayal of the Brexit vote.
Chequers was a turd.
This new deal — whatever it is: and we really don’t need to wade through 500 pages of legalese to know this — is going to be what you might call “turd ++”. That is, it will still look, smell, and taste like a turd: only it will be rolled in glitter and wrapped in a pink ribbon embroidered with the legend “Ceci n’est pas de la merde.” Well, I’m not buying it, let alone eating it — which is what Theresa will be asking her Cabinet to do. Are you?
The second reason is: signal v noise.
All that anger being expressed on social media right now, all these people declaring that even Jeremy Corbyn would be preferable to whatever Theresa May is offering, all these betrayed Brexiteers lashing out at Boris and Jacob Rees-Mogg and whoever else for allegedly failing to act soon enough, that’s all noise.
Yes, I concede that it’s entirely possible that my optimism is misplaced; that this really is the end of Brexit and that actually staying in the EU would have been preferable to this Brexit In Name Only which has been inflicted on us by the Remainer elite.
But I don’t think at this stage we should discount the possibility that the Brexiteers in Parliament know what they’re doing and that keeping their powder dry till it matters, rather than firing off ragged little volleys at whatever chimaera flashes across their sight line, was and is the wisest strategy. more here
