Who Is Involved in self-destruct Brexit?
Have The Tory’s Investigated the consequences?
Why Can’t Parliament Stop Self Destruct Brexit?
EU Citizens are being used as bargaining chips.
The amendment that the Tory’s scrapped did nothing more than require the government to bring forward proposals about how they plan to protect the rights of EU citizens living in the UK. It’s absolutely clear from the way the Tory’s scrapped this amendment, that they see these people’s lives as nothing more than bargaining pieces that they can use to squeeze the EU with. The Tory’s have shown utter contempt for the concerns of all the EU citizens that live, work, and have families in the UK. They simply don’t care about the worries, stresses and anxieties that they are causing so many people by refusing to quell the uncertainties over their futures.
Aside from making a clear demonstration to EU citizens living and working in the UK that the Tory’s couldn’t care less about them, another implication from this decision is that the EU are likely to further harden their negotiation stance. If the Tory government are likely to keep the rights of EU citizens living in the UK hanging by a thread, the EU are hardly likely to go into the negotiations prepared to offer Theresa May anything like the ridiculous demands she and her mates have come up with.
Using people’s lives as bargaining chips is disgusting, and indicated that the Conservatives are completely unwilling to go into the EU negotiations in good faith. The consequences are that millions of UK based EU citizens will end up feeling like the country they live in doesn’t care about them, and that by treating EU citizens in this way the Tory’s are pissing off the EU member states and making the impending threat of a catastrophic ‘self-destruct’ Brexit more likely than it already was!
It’s becoming increasingly obvious that the Tory’s are setting up an economically and socially ruinous Brexit. The problem is that it is going to be incredibly difficult to fight back against this slow motion march towards hard Brexit because anyone who dares to question what Theresa May and the three Brexiters are up to these days gets drowned out by the shrieking of militaristic Brexiters. Any people who try and hold the Tory government to account or even question proceedings, gets immediately shouted down as ‘traitors’ or ‘sore losers’ and much worse. In a toxified political environment like this, where an awful lot of people are so ideologically weeded to Brexit that they will viciously support it no matter how obvious it becomes that Brexit under Theresa May is a lose – lose situation.
