I’ll tell you what’s wrong; They had their chance and they duffed-it-up beyond all fixing and it took them 3-years to accomplish nothing… other than cost the UK economy £1 billion per month (totalling £38 billion since June 23, 2016) due to economic uncertainty.
To add insult to injury, over that same 3-years the UK continued to pay a £10.5 billion (average) annual net payment to the EU, for a total of £69.5 billion (so far) due to the prolonged Brexit negotiating period. A ‘negotiation’ that in the end, failed spectacularly.
And now they see Boris is going to get the job done in short order — which they imagine will have the effect of making their efforts look pathetic by comparison.
And worse, they won’t allow the new team to get the job done, thereby outing themselves for the ditherers they are. (Fun Fact: The Free Dictionary cites former UK Prime Minister Theresa May 4 out of 10 times in the ‘References’ section under the word ‘ditherer’)
After 3-years of trying to gain a Brexit deal these people failed to pass the Withdrawal Agreement three times in a row when they were leading the government.
The Conservative Party ‘called time’ on their efforts, because for all the bouncing around the EU and cravenly sucking-up to all and sundry, they accomplished nothing on the Brexit file. Not one thing.
It’s like the proverbial 7-year-olds who tried to play against an adult rugby team; ‘You were getting hammered by your opponents, let alone being unable to keep up with your own team members, and team management pulled your sorry behinds off the field so you wouldn’t embarrass yourselves to the point you’d get booed every time you walked onto a rugby pitch for the rest of your lives.’
In the case of the ‘Remoaner’ Brexit team, getting ‘benched’ by ‘management’ was a mercy! Do these people not get it?
Remember, a ‘net’ payment is the money you don’t get back. It’s a net payment. Get it?
So, who is working for the UK taxpayer? You tell me…
