Sack our MPs!

We British are fed up to the teeth with all of the Brexit discussions!

We hardly need reminding that, in 2016, David Cameron fulfilled his popular promise to hold a referendum on UK’s future, or not, in the European Union. He expected the electorate to vote in favour of continued membership. He had no plan for the contrary vote and was shocked when it went against his expectation. He was so shocked, and clueless about what to do next, that he disappeared off the scene, leaving Theresa May to pick up the pieces.

Our MPs are paid to represent us. They are incapable of doing so.

Two-and-a-half years on from the referendum, they have done nothing but argue about the terms of our so-called divorce deal. They act like a sixth form debating society, scoring points off each other and clearly more interested in their own personal career ambitions than in the future of the country.

This is a very significant point in the history of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. If our Members of Parliament were truly committed to securing the best possible future for our nation, they would forego all political differences and divisions to work together for the common good.

Although my opinion is that staying in the EU club and playing a part in steering it into the future would be preferable to leaving and having no say in the creation of regulations that we will still be subject to if we want to trade with EU countries, I accept that Brexit WILL happen on 29th March 2019.

As I previously said, our MPs are incapable of reaching agreement. We, the taxpayers, are paying them to behave like children and drive us towards the cliff-edge like a legislature of lemmings.
(NOTE: That’s a most appropriate collective noun, don’t you think?)

My solution?

We should hold a general election as soon as possible, with one additional rule.


The new rule would be that
no incumbent MP would be allowed to stand for re-election.


None of the current team are representing our interests. Let’s replace them all.

What do you think?
