On the 22nd April I wrote an article questioning the Prime Minister’s motives for holding a snap general election at this time. I pointed out that in the 2015 general election the Conservatives had a manifesto pledge to hold a referendum on EU membership; that they introduced legislation through Parliament in June 2015 to hold such a referendum, which was passed by an overwhelming majority in both the House of Commons and the Lords; and that the result of the referendum in May 2016 had clearly been in favour of a British withdrawal from the EU.
I pointed out that during the referendum campaign, an impartial guide was produced by the Electoral Commission and distributed to every household in the land declaring, “This is your decision. The government will implement what you decide”. Furthermore, I pointed out that, “It is therefore disingenuous for anyone to suggest, following the public vote for Brexit that our current Conservative government, led by Theresa May, does not have a mandate from the people of this country to put into effect the result of the referendum.”
At the time of my article various pundits were suggesting that Theresa May had called the snap general election in order to cynically exploit the public desire for Brexit and with the expectation that she would emerge with a massively increased majority, however in my article I stated:
“My suspicions are that the Conservatives’ apparent commitment to Brexit is insincere and largely tactical.
“They know they cannot be seen to blatantly override the will of the people by disregarding the outcome of the referendum and believe they must be seen by the public to be doing their best to deliver on their promise that “[t]he government will implement what [we] decide”.
Furthermore, the Conservatives know that Mrs May cannot be seen to willingly give in to Remainer demands that we hold another referendum, but she could delay implementing Article 50 for as long as possible, in the hope that some thing – some event – might provide the pretext for shelving Brexit.”
My suspicions are that establishment Remainers view this snap general election as the means by which the Conservative government can create a desperate, last minute pretext for shelving Brexit.
At the beginning of this election campaign, Theresa May looked to have an unassailable lead in the opinion polls, so keen are the public for her to press on with Brexit, and so unpopular was Jeremy Corbyn, and yet here we are with just a week to go before election day, witnessing the Conservative lead evaporate and the prospect of a hung parliament.
In a Mail Online article published today, the Mail report a YouGov poll in which they predict that the Conservatives will still win the largest number of seats, but that Labour in coalition with the Liberal Democrats and the Scottish National Party will have an overall majority.
Were such a position to crystalise after the general election the Conservatives might try to carry on in government but they would be a ‘lame duck’ government and would rely upon the support of the opposition coalition to implement legislation, and such a coalition would almost certainly demand the shelving of Brexit as the price for their support.
Now we can see why Theresa May might have been pressured to introduce disastrously unpopular policies into the Conservative manifesto for this snap general election. Why the Conservatives announced the scrapping of the £72,000 cap on charging for long-term care; why they announced that care in the home would also be charge against an individual’s estate; the scrapping of the ‘triple lock’ on retirement pensions; the means testing for the Winter Fuel Allowance for pensioners; why the Conservatives failed to provide reassurances about future investment in the NHS; why they announced the scrapping of free school lunches. All of these measures have predictably undermined support for the Conservatives from among their core supporters, the elderly and their middle aged relatives with families.
Theresa May could simply be incompetent, or out of touch with the public. Conversely, she may have deliberately ‘thrown’ the election in order to be true to her Remainer instincts, or as part of a sinister establishment plot to frustrate the will of the British people? We may never know!
One thing we can be sure of though, is that the sinister establishment insiders who have for decades been coercing us into accepting EU hegemony, have not given up. They continue to exercise great influence over politicians at Westminster, and they will continue their scheming and their plotting until the bitter end.
