BONKERS BLACKFORD! SNP Demands DELAY to Brexit Transition Due to Corona #SNPissOff

THE SCOTS Nut-ional Party has urged Labour to block Brexit by extending the transition period to 2022, instead of its intended end on December 31st of this year, using the Coronavirus and the deaths of 36,042 Brits in a massive attack on democracy.

In a letter to Labour and other opposition parties, Ian Blackford, SNP Westminster leader – who is backed by Nicola Sturgeon, called for ‘unity’ on a delay to Brexit.

Blackford and Sturgeon, who both campaigned for Remain in the 2016 EU Referendum, called for a ‘united stance’ on this front from such parties.

He stated that ‘it is right that all other political agendas are paused as we deal with the priority of saving lives and protecting people’s incomes’ and that ‘in that context, I believe now is the right moment to unite as opposition parties in Westminster in seeking a two-year extension to the Brexit transition period’.

He concluded with ‘that strong, united opposition stance would also send a powerful message to our European friends and partners, who we know are favourable to the logic and sense of this request’.

Other party leaders have echoed such a sentiment, with current Labour boss Sir Keir Starmer stating that ‘the government made a mistake putting dates into legislation … they should extend it if it’s necessary to do so’ and Liberal Democrats leadership candidate Layla Moran stating that such a timetable by the government would lead to ‘no-deal’ still being ‘on the table’.

Labour leader Sir Kier Starmer campaigned for Remain as well (whose strategy on Brexit as the Shadow Brexit Secretary is often blamed for his party’s loss in the 2019 general election), and Moran is also a Europhile.

The government in response, has reaffirmed its commitment to getting Brexit done, and not extending the current deadline.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock stated that there was ‘absolutely no need’ to extend, because ‘we’ve got the basis of the agreement, so let’s get on and implement it’.

Michael Gove has admitted that it was ‘plain prudence’ to stick with the current timetable, and Trade Secretary Liz Truss highlighted how ‘ambitious’ the current programs are.

Politicians are wrong about what the public want

So the, out of touch political elite are trying to say that the public would be happy to cough up an extra £2000 a year, per household to prop up the NHS? 
Advertisers website Wrong! While many British families struggle to make ends meet, the political elite thinks that people will be glad to fund a failing business that is being run into the ground because of their failed policies on how the NHS is managed?

No. This just shows that we have monkeys running our country! Many people on Facebook have shared the above post on various pages; a large number of those people don't even do politics.

Has the Supreme Court handed Boris Johnson a Brexit escape route?

The Supreme Court’s judgment is the latest constitutional perversion after the Benn act. But ironically it may assist the Government in achieving its objective of Britain leaving the EU by 31 October, without having to seek an extension to the Article 50 process.
In paragraph 34, the Supreme Court states that its ‘proper function’ under our constitution is to give effect to the separation of powers (which justifies court intervention in relation to prorogation). Then, in what appears to be an innocuous sentence in paragraph 55, it says that it is to be “remember[ed] always that the actual task of governing is for the executive and not for Parliament or the courts.”
Yet the Benn Act manifestly contradicts this principle. It dictates how the Government must conduct negotiations with a foreign body, the EU, to the extent of obliging the Prime Minister to write specifically worded letters and accept whatever extension it offers when certain conditions are not met. In the situation when t…
