UK government collapse

Some months back I predicted that the dreadful UK government would fall in April and lose the election I said would be held in May. The massive defeat in the House of Lords the other day over the Brexit legislation simply starts this process.

Everything hinges on the Customs Union argument, which, in effect, means we either stay or leave the EU. There are more than sufficient elected MPs to vote in favour of the Customs Union and stop the Brexit process in its tracks.

Now Brexiteers’ only remaining argument is that the House of Lords is not elected. No problem. The cross-party groups have voted with a too-big-to-ignore majority, exceeding 100. That will drive the legislature to crush Brexit body and soul in the days ahead.

Personally, I have little sympathy for anyone who wishes to destroy the United Kingdom because they hold on to archaic principles of sovereignty. The government lost control of UK borders decades ago and, indeed, it has now lost records relating to 600,000 people on temporary visas who should not be in the UK at all, according to Brexiteers, of course. That, and the much earlier shredding of all Home Office documentation regarding the Windrush generation, proves the point.

Now we wait and we shall see.
