Sitting Reading Paper (not another Brexit poem Don? Surely?)


The person under news-hat

Is not a chick, it's me

Look closely at my arms and

Big biceps you will see


(Cleared that up. Now to continue....)


I'm sitting reading paper

10,000 miles away

Boris playing Brexit

UK don't look OK


UK'ers you are on

The doorstep, (which I'm not)

Solution? How to solve this?

It seems you've gone to pot


Some bigwig in the EU

(Seems far from being dim)

Is calling Boris 'traitor'

For blaming all, but him


But these are politicians

What more can we expect?

Always blaming others

But in them? No defect


So what's the solution? Answer?.....

I'm waiting for some "Remain" MP to explain how swearing an oath
of allegiance to Her Majesty The Queen (when they take their seat
in Parliament) stacks up against their readiness to bend the knee
instead to the foreign forces in an EU that presumes precedence over our borders, trade, laws and customs? So far, I wait in vain.

I like that line ' always blaming others, but in them no defect'. That's exactly how it is with politicians. I do enjoy getting an insight into how people in other countries view us Brits during this Brexit thing. lol

Your situation would never occur here in Australia. We have a modified Westminster system. Democracy for the people. What the people vote for in a referendum must be carried out. No ifs or buts. The Supreme Court, acting for the people, can veto any action of Parliament.

UK would do well to adopt our system.....

A difficult time indeed. It's weird situation, where (if the memes I read are right?!) the country at large voted to leave in the referendum, but the MPs largely voted remain. Can you see where the logjam might arise?..

A truly British dilemma . The government wanted us to vote but only the way that they wanted. Then we didn't vote that way and they resigned or entered into a sulk for three years. Now they would like to do something but it's always raining and there's cricket, then tea, . . you know . . .

Thank you for your perspective from Down Under. "So what´s the solution?" Well, it has already been solved. In 2016 the British People in a referendum voted to leave the European Union. Democracy must be respected whether we like it or not.
