How do you like your Brexit? Soft, hard or scrambled with a referendum result that you weren’t expecting? Well, if like former Conservative leader David Cameron, you were hoping to stay within the unelected bureaucracy of the European Union, at least you are looking at the sunny side up and are happy with the political omelette that you’ve been served up.
In a recent interview with the Clown News Network (that’s CNN) David Cameron insisted that he does not regret holding the Brexit referendum that saw him hand in his notice after 52% of the British public voted to leave the EU.
However, Mr. Cameron did express dismay and regret over the unexpected result saying he wished the country had ticked those ballot forms to remain in the EU instead.
During the referendum Mr. Cameron and team remain, threw everything but the kitchen sink to ensure the UK stayed within the EU, including project fear and the grim forecast that Britain would deteriorate into a ‘Mad Max’ style post-apocalyptic wasteland and crumble away and sink into the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, a bit like Atlantis and the Titanic really.
Oh, and there was also the convenient stunt in which Labour MP Jo Cox was brutally murdered and used as a political prop and martyr, as well as emotional blackmail from the then United States President Barack Obama, came at us, in order to garner those all-important votes to remain within Angela Merkel’s grubby EU clutches.
But hey, democracy prevailed and the British public voted, and the government have finally honoured the will of that voting power and we will all, “live happily ever after” right?
Well, time will tell, but it does seem that David Cameron had the best of intentions and wants us all to know that he has absolutely no regrets, telling CNN, “I don’t regret holding a referendum. I think it was the right thing to do” assured a defiant Mr. Cameron.
“I don’t think you can belong to these organisations and see their powers grow, and treaty after treaty, and power after power going from Westminster to Brussels and never asking the people whether they are happy governed in that way.”
“But, I haven’t changed my mind about the result of the referendum. I wish the vote had gone another way. I think we have taken the wrong course.”
He went on to add that it was a “legitimate choice” for Britain to be a “friend, a neighbour and a partner” of the European Union with the likes of Jean-Claude Juncker and Donald Tusk, rather than being a member.
Oh, but that Brexit divorce bill (worth about €40 billion) should make up for not remaining. But hey, everybody needs good and needy neighbours, right?
“I, obviously, believe that I was right to hold a referendum. I made a promise to the British people. I kept that promise.”
He wished current British Prime Minster Theresa May, the very best of luck and said he has shunned the lure of the celebrity spotlight because the job of Prime Minister is “hard enough without your predecessor giving you a running commentary”.
So, we guess no “Keeping up With Cameron” on the E! Network in the future then, David?
The UK is finally scheduled to leave the European Union on Friday the 29th of March, 2019, at precisely 11pm. But, with more up’s and down’s than a feminists temper tantrums during her menstruation cycle, we just wonder what other emotional hurdles and autistic leftist tears the road up to Brexit might bring?
