“Can we get on and leave now please, Boris? There’s a good chap.”

The hacks and TV heads are currently having a collective meltdown. The 31st of October is less than two months away and the remaining Remainers who George Galloway likened to “a collapsing soufflé” are making a lot of noise. Hyperbolic noise. On steroids. The news hounds, the hacktivists, the propagandists and the assorted EU funded hanger-oners have turned up the noise. Head of the lipstick and greasepaint rolling news Twitterati and ‘visage de jour’ on SKY News politics is Beth Rigby, a cerebral toddler who has somehow found herself in the deep end of our United Kingdom’s failing Idiocracy.  “…“A Tory minister texts: “They’ve all gone nuts”. This is going to be a mind-bending week which could destroy the Tory party, this govt & test our political & constitutional coventions (sic) to breaking point. It could even end in a GE being called. Strap in and stay tuned to @ skynews“, she tweets, lining up her narrative for the coming week. Yawn. I think I’ll give that a miss Beth, thanks all the same.

Meanwhile, out in the country and outside of the less than 1% psychological bubble that is the UK news media cycle, people are getting up, going to work, feeding their kids, shopping or saving for next year’s holiday, tidying the garden, watching the soaps and generally not thinking about politics at all. Mention Brexit to them and you’re unlikely to get a well-tempered response if you get any interest whatsoever. People are fed up of ‘Brexit’ and ‘Politics’ and want the damn potholes fixed and the traffic jams to go away.

Until the 31st of October, political commentary on UK mainstream and social media is virtually all noise and the usual suspects will be creating lots of it. Divide and rule is what they do and the noise is there to divide.

The odd clear signal or two can however be detected in the noise without too much difficulty:

  •        Theresa May promised the nation that we would leave the EU on the 29th March 2019. She stated such on over one hundred occasions. It was in her power to undertake, yet she failed and she lied to the nation. In failing, the Conservative government under May attempted to con the British public with her ‘Withdrawal Agreement’, a disgraceful document designed to ensure the UK remained supplicant to the EU and handicapped by a continued relationship with it.
  •         Boris Johnson has promised the nation that we will leave the EU on the 31st of October. Leaving the EU means taking control of our money, our laws and our borders. Leaving the EU means leaving the Customs Union, the Single Market and the jurisdiction of the European Courts.

Bluster, buffoonery, betrayal and breath-taking contempt for the voting, hardworking, taxpaying average Joe will be the signature of the coming news cycle output on the BBC, C4, SKY and every half hour on every radio station in the country. It has been the signature of news cycle output for so, so long and people are fed up and angry. The usual suspects will weld their talking points, their fearful notions and their doom-mongery into the minds of the listening public. It’s all noise.

Come the 31st of October we will be in a position to judge whether Boris Johnson, First Lord of the Treasury, is a man of his word. His predecessors were unafraid of the unabashed lie, but we are each different, each free to be honest and it is unfair to prejudge Boris Johnson based on the words and actions of others. The noise will come to a conclusion and the future of our nation will be set on a new course.  Whatever course we take, I suspect it is going to be rather turbulent.

Very well put James..  My own take on it is that 'Parliament' are determined to stop Boris and stop Brexit by any means at their disposal hidden under the guise of  'Democracy'.. As far as I can see, calling for a general election would put the final nail in the Brexit coffin. Game over !  The best outcome I see, is a further delay of Brexit being announced until the remainers get their ducks in a line for the final betrayal of the 2016 referendum vote. However it goes in the next few weeks, it's going to be a bit of a 'white knuckle' ride for those that can be bothered to stay informed.

Gutted that our so called democratic system can be used and abused with laws passed in 24 hours to defy the laws that were beaten into shape over centuries. 
Someone, please throw out the traitors from our parliament with Bercow first.

James & Pete, you are so right. It is interesting however to see how the self righteous remainers have projected the name of "elite, undemocratic and bringing disaster to our country" away from themselves and put these on our shoulders. In the likelihood of them winning the day, I just hope I am spared to stay alive and give them undiluted hell when they are crying "help me, I did not know what I was doing, they told me so many lies."
Still, it must be "No surrender, not an inch, until the very end." We are British - Steady lads, steady". It is not over until the fat lady sings.

Well everyone, if you've watched/listened to yesterday and today's shenanigans in the Palace of Westminster and the torturous behaviour of some Tory MP's, then you'll already know that Brexit happening on October 31st is highly unlikely .. I have to conclude that the remainers are going to win the day and probably win no Brexit .. Democracy seems to have died today.. The sovereignty of the 17.4 million has been ignored by those who are supposed to represent us.

Pete, it is hard to stomach and I can see how you feel. But the fight must go on - sooner or later there will be a general election. Build up your strength until then and at that point we will do or die.
