A Lesson from Adrian Goldsworthy’s Caesar

From Port Phillip Insider (Australia)-

We’ve said from the beginning that Brexit won’t actually happen.

They’ll find some way to get out of it.

As Business Insider reports:

A top London law firm is planning a legal challenge to force a UK parliamentary debate and vote on leaving the European Union before the mechanics of an actual Brexit begin.

Apparently, government lawyers have argued the opposite. We’ll see.

We do note the apparent irony, which the anti-Brexit lobby appears to have missed. Only now do they champion the supremacy of parliament.

Yet, by ceding power to Brussels, the parliament in Westminster has become little more than a ‘rubber stamp’ for eurocrat legislation.

Of course, we won’t give the Brexit lobby a free kick on this one either. Their claim has been all about bringing sovereignty and supremacy back to the UK parliament.

It too, would be somewhat ironic, if they claim parliament shouldn’t have the ultimate decision on Brexit.

To misquote John Lennon: Irony, Hypocrisy, Bagiry, Shagiry, Dragiry, Madiry, Who-cares-iry?

It’s all another reason to not bother voting in the first place.
