An open letter to the Tory Remainers

Dear Ms. Soubry, Ms. Morgan, Ms. Rudd, Ms. Greening, Ms. Allen, Mr. Grieve,  and Mr. Clarke,

As one of the consumers to which this article refers and a pensioner to boot, I would very much like to take advantage of a lower cost of living denied to us by the EEC/EU for the last 40 years and I would have thought as our elected leaders, you would want the same. We endlessly rattle on about healthy diets and obesity etc so wouldn’t it help the cause if the costs of fruit and vegetables were cheaper? It might also help get the Conservatives off the hook of the Labour created and inspired ‘austerity’.

However, those points may be seen as far too simplistic in the broader scheme of things regarding the UK’s democratic decision to leave the EU- important though they are. What is more important though, is that we have spent over 40 years being slowly absorbed into Monnet’s plan for a Federal States of Europe. As well read politicians in all things EU, I am sure that you will have read the various texts and utterances of Monsieur Monnet stated so clearly to Macmillan and Heath and underlined with Maastricht and Major that this route map must be a closely guarded governmental secret and kept from the people of not only the U.K. but all of the members of the EU.

The most important point at issue now is that, as you will recall, we had an ill conceived General Election a year ago causing a few of you, I’m sure, to sweat on election night as the votes were counted. Mainly due to a very badly run campaign, we came perilously close to electing a Marxist Government into this country and if any of you still harbour doubts as to the efficacy of our decision to Leave the EU with concerns for our economy, then Mr. Corbyn’s Marxist cabal should be all the antidote you need as to the future of our economy.

What was important about that silly and vainglorious election was that the Conservative manifesto had at its core the clearly stated position that the Conservative Party, if elected, would oversee our total withdrawal from the EU in March 2019. This withdrawal to include our removal from the single market, the customs union, imposition of laws from the ECJ, freedom of movement and regaining control of our sovereignty, our parliamentary democracy, our money and our freedom to trade with whom and wherever suits the interests of the British people.

The Upper House has seen fit to try and stymie your decisions to implement our Conservative Party manifesto, no doubt with some doing so through misguided self interest rather than the interests of the democratic process or of the British people.  I am sure that many of the things you have all said over the last couple of years and since the GE that returned you to Westminster have been said from a base of genuine principle, but next Tuesday sees the return of the Withdrawal Bill to the Commons and we already see the odious positioning of Corbyn’s Marxist Labour Party with yet another change of direction on his Party’s Brexit position. If ever there was a time when our Party has to have a united front and deliver not only our manifesto promise on Brexit but accept the will of the people that elected you, next Tuesday is it. To fail in this could well spark a constitutional crisis of such a magnitude that our Government, of which you are a part, could well fall and we could well see the election of a Marxist Party. You and your fellow Conservative MPs would never be forgiven for reneging on our Brexit promises. Individual principle is proper and correct but the common good is the basis on which society functions. Many millions have made their position on the EU very clear, namely, to Leave.

As Conservative Party MPs, it is your duty to deliver the will of your electorate.

Kindest regards to you all in what for many of us and I’m sure yourselves, if not our darkest hour as Winnie so eloquently put it 80 years ago, is a dark hour of unnecessary uncertainty.

About Ian Pye

Ian is grammar school educated although he briefly flirted with the idea of becoming Britain's answer to Breaking Bad's Walter White with a short sojourn at university. The constant smell of hydrogen sulphide caused the break up of that partnership and thereafter he pursued a career in sales culminating in partnering with his second wife for many years in their own recruitment business. When the second marriage came to an amicable end, so did Ian's allotted time in the world of commerce and he became a retired person of no means but a still active brain. He lives on the outskirts of the great metropolis of Manchester and has close affinity with the red side of the football city being a United fan of over 50 years. He has deep interest in British politics, is conservative by nature and persuasion as well as reading much on aspects of religious theology particularly the works out of Albuquerque, New Mexico of Richard Rohr and hitherto Richard's mentor, Thomas Merton. Ian has three children, two of whom live in London and the third in Toronto as well as four adorable grandchildren

      Thank you very much. Tuesday and Wednesday in the House are going to be very important days not only for Brexit but also the Conservative Party. Get this wrong through the silliness of some of our MPs and we could well see a constitutional crisis in this country.
