THE STATE OF THE TORIES

By Pete Moore On April 11th, 2019

The Prime Minister vowed that there would be no extension beyond 30th June. This after vowing hundreds of times that we’d leave the EU on 29th March. What a shocker it is, therefore, that she’s accepted an extension to 31st October. That’s only another £6 billion down the toilet. Thanks Remainers.

These are days when the extraordinary becomes and everyday event. Sir Bill Cash, a Tory to his boots, the backbone of the party, and as moderate as the day is long. Even he is now asking the PM if she’ll resign, in the chamber –

I admire his forbearance. I couldn’t stand to be in the same building as the Prime Minister, let along have to share a room and a party with her. I’d have long ago walked down to her seat and dragged her put of the place. Desspite everything that’s happened, the fact that this terrible woman is still in Downing St is the greatest national humiliation.

  1. Excellent news. The date the Brexit wreckers we’re hoping to sink our economic prosperity has been delayed again. Hopefully like a mirage in the desert Brexit day will never materialise.

  2. I don’t think that Bill Cash has ever been described by anyone, including Bill Cash, as a moderate. This is the same Bill Cash that was the leader of the Maastricht Rebels.

  3. Sir Bill Cash believes that a democratic vote should be respected, and that the Tories should deliver on manifesto promises.

    In a sea of extremists he is an island of moderation.

  4. Are you saying that if the UK had voted to Remain then Bill Cash would have become an ardent supporter of the European Union, and would never have again campaigned to leave it?

  5. Forget Bill cash our very own Pete Moore regarded the 1975 referendum as an irrelevance and our membership of the EEC as it then was, as an illegal usurpation of our ancient sovereignty. Pete Moore should stick to his principles rather than now relying on the crutch of a conveniently favourable new referendum.

  6. Are you saying that if the UK had voted to Remain……

    Seamus – what kind of Remain would it have been?

  7. No Seamus.

    If the UK had voted to remain, Sir Bill Cash would have accepted the result. His view would not have changed, but he would not have demanded that Parliament usurp illicit powers and conduct a coup d’etat against the people.

  8. “If the UK had voted to remain, Sir Bill Cash would have accepted the result. His view would not have changed, but he would not have demanded that Parliament usurp illicit powers and conduct a coup d’etat against the people.”

    So you are saying that had the UK voted to remain Bill Cash wouldn’t have campaigned after that to leave the EU?

  9. “Seamus – what kind of Remain would it have been?”

    Given that the Leave vote has been interpreted in the most extreme version of that Leave vote I’d imagine the same should be of the Remain vote. The UK would have had to join the Euro, join Schengen etc… Remain means Remain after all.

  10. Seamus – Leave means simply Leave, and there’s no ‘what kind of Leave’ obfuscation in the minds of those who voted to Leave. The question was put on the referendum paper, and that is what was answered.

  11. Norway is not in the EU, but is in the Single Market. The question said: “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?”

    It is entirely possible to remain in the Single Market and leave the EU. Doing so would still result in leaving the European Union. Did voters vote for that? And if not how do you know?

  12. Seamus – it’s just Leave, back to what it was like before the UK joined. Voters voted for what was on the referendum paper……..

    Now, the losers are saying – It is entirely possible to remain in the Single Market and leave the EU. Doing so would still result in leaving the European Union. Did voters vote for that? And if not how do you know? We need another referendum – and this time, it will be a ‘People’s Referendum’ – brilliant!!!

  13. “it’s just Leave, back to what it was like before the UK joined.”

    That wasn’t on the ballot paper. The ballot paper was “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?”, not “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union and return to how things were before the UK joined the European Communities?”

  14. Sir Bill Cash believes that a democratic vote should be respected

    How quaint. Lionel Shriver nails this Remainer parliament here:

    “You fiercely disagree with us over what’s best for our country, whose most historically admirable aspects you crusaders seem disconcertingly bent on destroying in the very process of coming to the nation’s rescue. As this difference of opinion has played out, too, it’s hard to resist the impression that you mostly just want to have your way. And fair play! You seem to be getting your way. Yet what most frustrates us is your dissembling. That’s not to impugn the Lib Dems, Greens, and SNP, who’ve been upfront about plotting to overturn the referendum from the start. We respect their forthrightness. One knows where one is with such people. So we’d far prefer your brutal candour, even if that means your giving overt expression to condescension and tyranny. We don’t want Alastair Campbell to bamboozle us once again about how Brexit is ‘undeliverable’, when the truth is far cruder: you refuse to deliver it…”

  15. Seamus – you’re disappearing up your own arse. The ballot paper said:

    Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?

    and the answer was LEAVE THE EU. Just leave, open the door and we’re out. It wasn’t about what colour of door we want, and what kind of weather do you want when you leave – it was just Leave.

    Now you and the Remainers know this.

  16. Seamus understands the damage that BREXIT may cause to those in the Irish farming industry. That is why he voted Remain. I understand and respect his decision but, still disagree with it. All I ask is that those on the Remain accept that we on the Leave side won a winner takes all referendum and, even though they disagree with said result, they should respect it in its entirety. And that means Leave means Leave. The EU, the CU, the SM and the ECJ.

  17. Seamus – you’re disappearing up your own arse. The ballot paper said:…

    Nope.

    As I said to you recently, if we take three Leavers on ATW:

    Pete Moore was promoting leaving the EU but remaining in the SM, CU and EEA, (before the referendum)

    Peter wants to leave the EU but remain in the Single Market

    You want a no deal cut and dried Brexit, cheerio.

    That’s on ATW alone. How does that extrapolate out to wider society and who are you to suggest that the third premise listed above was the majority preference of the electorate?

  18. “and the answer was LEAVE THE EU. Just leave, open the door and we’re out. It wasn’t about what colour of door we want, and what kind of weather do you want when you leave – it was just Leave.”

    Leaving the European Union, but staying in the Single Market, would be leaving the European Union. And the ballot paper said “Should the United Kingdom … leave the European Union?”

    That is all. It in no way shape or form prescribes or proscribes the manner in which Leave should happen.

  19. “Seamus understands the damage that BREXIT may cause to those in the Irish farming industry. That is why he voted Remain. I understand and respect his decision but, still disagree with it. All I ask is that those on the Remain accept that we on the Leave side won a winner takes all referendum and, even though they disagree with said result, they should respect it in its entirety. And that means Leave means Leave. The EU, the CU, the SM and the ECJ.”

    The only result that matters to me Remain won 56% to 44%. All I ask is that those on the Leave side accept that in Northern Ireland Remain won, and that means Remain means Remain. What Britain does is their business. But Northern Ireland should remain in the EU.

  20. Peter wants to leave the EU but remain in the Single Market

    No Paul, I am in favour of remaining in the Customs Union, not the Single Market.

    I have pointed this out to you before.
