What is the Future for Brexit Now That the Election is Done?

by Mark Angelides

Prime Minster Theresa May took a gamble and she lost. The majority that her party held has been lost and it is now almost certain that she will only be able to form a government with the backing of the DUP. This was sold as an election for a “Brexit mandate”, but now there is no party with a majority and the only option is (in Mrs. May’s own words) a “Coalition of Chaos”. Was this perhaps the intention all along? Many are wondering whether this whole election’s purpose was to scupper Brexit talks so as to backpedal on key promises that the British people voted for.
Mrs. May will be under almost constant pressure from the Labour party to stand down as leader. The sad truth is that the Labour party do not really care who is leader of the Conservative party, it is just a good excuse to make them look weak (which they clearly are). If the Labour party had any intention of going ahead with a ‘full Brexit” they would likely not have received the amount of votes they did. There were just enough obfuscations to convince Remainers that under Jeremy Corbyn, Britain would stay in the EU through backdoor channels.
Already the Brexit Secretary, David Davis, has started saying that with this electoral catastrophe, the UK may have to make a lot of concessions to the European Union, and despite the EU stating that they are saddened by this election and the lack of negotiation swiftness it will bring, they are secretly rubbing their hands with glee. So fall all parties who challenge the supremacy of the EU Globalists. They see it as not just a fitting punishment and an opportunity to keep power over the UK, but also as a stern warning to any European political parties that may be flirting with the idea of ever trying to be a sovereign nation.
But perhaps this was the plan all along. Mrs. May was a Remain campaigner, and it was a shock to many Brexiteers that she became leader of the party after David Cameron resigned. If I were of a more paranoid bent, I would suggest that this election was rigged to be a failure so as to allow the EU to remain supreme in the UK. What concessions will be made? Single Market membership seems the most likely, and this will of course come with the price of “Free movement of people”.
The one bright light on the horizon is that this betrayal of Brexit could mark the return of Nigel Farage to frontline politics. Whether that will be in UKIP (who had a fairly disastrous election themselves), or perhaps with Arron Banks’ “The Patriotic Alliance”, either way, there is no one more formidable at promoting what is Best for Britain.
