Readers’ comments: One woman versus democracy


In response to Laura Perrins: How Theresa the Terminator zapped Conservative courage,

Lorna wrote:

The feeling of despair at the abuse of democracy is widespread, beyond anything we ever imagined. Without Parliamentarians with strong principles and courage we have no hope. We now are faced with the reality of our democracy that it is not really very democratic at all. One woman can subvert the will of the majority with ease.

Hank Rearden wrote:

The sheer rush towards suicide the Tories seemed embarked upon is extraordinary. Their postbags must tell them that the 2022 election is lost if they do this.

Seriously, can we rule out the possibility that if a bunch of unreconstructed Marxists are given power by default, there would be no further elections?

John Dub wrote:

The country can recover from a dose of Corbynism.

It cannot withstand permanent inclusion in the EU.

Our choices seem to be clear.

Come now Laura, you’re being most unfair on that Terminator fella; in Terminator 2 he reveals that he is capable of learning and even appearing vaguely human. Theresa May, on the other hand . . .

It might clarify the discussions if we used the English language correctly. Surrender not agreement. Let’s call defeat by its proper name.

I don’t see how conventional politics can repair the breach of faith and trust that has unfolded before our very eyes. Something else is necessary – something that will be very unpopular with today’s crop of political pygmies. There may be trouble ahead.

The Tories are going to get so comprehensively annihilated at the next election (whenever that may be) that Corbyn will have absolute uncontested authority. I’d advise anyone capable of doing so to emigrate to a less corrupt country outside the EU.

A Corbyn government wouldn’t last a year. The same vested interests dictating to Treason May would do for him. Our country is set for much turmoil in the coming years. Bad idea to sell off Boris’s water cannon as it could well be needed.

If the alleged Tory Brexiteers meant what they bleat, they would vote against whatever May puts in front of them and force a general election. But half of them now have quasi-ministerial positions with an additional £100,000 salary to go with a car, office, staff and flunkeys bowing and scraping for them. The rest live in hope so no chance. There isn’t a red blood cell among the lot of them.

I don’t think Theresa ‘zapped’ anyone’s courage.
I think this whole situation is a product of when you have the governing political party dominated by hypocrites, cowards, time-servers and those whose idea of ‘public service’ is a never-ending cycle of committees, quangos and a post political career – straight on to blue chip boards and the possibility of never really having to work again.

How we laughed when other countries kept having referendums over and over until they got the ‘approved’ response.

Doesn’t seem so funny now.

Laura winds up by saying, ‘Elitists do not give up their power and privilege easily. It was foolish to believe otherwise.’

No, they don’t give up, ever. When one governing elite is overthrown – either by the electorate or by internal dissidents – an elite-in-waiting takes over.

Hoping that Mogg, Raab, Johnson, or someone else will come to the rescue and sort out the Brexit mess, is vain. The elites will circulate and we shall remain where we are.

‘Brexiteer Tories’ are Tories first and Brexiteers second. That is now obvious.

The Tory Party has been selling Britain down the river since 1958.

Macmillan – started the ball rolling, didn’t tell us the ramifications.
(Home – wasn’t around long enough.)
Heath – facilitated the whole process, didn’t confess the ramifications.
(Thatcher – wasn’t told, and didn’t realise until c.1986 when she spoke out firmly.)
Major – no referendum on Maastricht i.e. the public announcement of ‘ever closer union’.
Cameron – granted the referendum, but appallingly launched Project Fear.
May – shamed Britain in the eyes of the world.

The Tory Party must be punished and wiped out for ever.
