David Cameron delivers a statement on the steps of Downing Street
David Cameron delivers a statement on the steps of Downing Street

Desperate Dave makes another appeal from the steps of No 10: "Brits don't quit", he says. An odd claim having surrendered so much to Brussels. He also says that we should vote for our children's future. I agree. Brexit is a vote for their future. To regain our sovereignty before we are swamped by irreversible changes brought about by people who can not tell the difference between race and ideology.

UKIP could prove to be the nail in the coffin for Brexit because of a re-hashed Conservative Party poster campaign which Remain have cynically turned to their advantage following the sad killing of Jo Cox MP. Stephen Kinnock's reference to the tragedy in his Common's tribute when he said that Jo Cox would be "disgusted" was in particularly poor taste when his family has done remarkably well out of their European connections after failing so badly in British politics. Persuading people to vote out of emotion rather than facts is a regrettable act of desperation which is to be deplored.

Win or lose I would expect David Cameron to stay on as Prime Minister. Despite what many troublemakers have suggested to grab a catchy headline, the best person to negotiate exit if electors vote that way is he who caused the problem in the first place. Conversely it should be up to him to salve the wounds he has caused. Stability is the order of the day, not more upheaval.

In my view, the person who got us into this mess should sort it out whether we are IN or OUT. So win or lose, over to you Dave.

I am indebted to a Spectator commentator for this clip "The message that comes out is fear, fear, fear". Brilliant.

    With respect Ancient Briton, I agree with all your points bar one.
    Dodgy Dave staying on as Prime Minister for "stability" and to "salve the wounds"?
    You might as well be suggesting bully boy ++Bazza stays on after 31st January 2017 for "stability" and to "salve the wounds"!

    1. Good point LEV but I was thinking of TINA whereas any alternative would be preferable to ++Bazzer.

      Be careful what you say AB, Jefferts Schori might throw her mitre in the ring!

  2. More Hubris from the CiW

    regarding your article, at least the David Cameron and the conservative party have allowed democracy and the people to vote, when labour would not have.......

      Yes Danny, but even Cameron would not have done so if he'd considered there was even the possibility of a majority voting for Brexit.
      I suspect there will never again be another referendum in the UK, the establishment and political elite won't dare risk it.

  3. Well what do you know, the vast majority of Welsh voters ignore Barry Morgan and his bench of bunglers.
    Here's hoping Darth ++Insidious will announce his resignation and follow Cameron into the wilderness.

  4. Please forgive me for reminding you 1662, but the Archbishop of Wales does not appreciate His omnipotence being questioned.
