More Article 50 scaremongering; desperate UK Government sacrifices Parliament; the “Republic” sees how it all stands

Many do think that there is a rationalisation by which the British ruling class feels justified in its government-by-deception, whereby underneath the constant confidence trickery, the full spectrum dominance in media, the perpetual psychological manipulation, a thin scintilla of truth must be made available, albeit in a covert fashion, so that the public, in general, can be said to have been made aware of the real circumstances, but then in not acting upon the information to convict the Government (which never happens – the general public is stupid [or frit]), have thereby consented to the grand illusion. Thus, we find in the midst of a BBC article, titled “Brexit: Departure date pushed back by at least two weeks”, a caveat whereby it can be said that the British have been informed: “The UK’s departure date is still written in to law as next Friday, 29 March.”

And of course it is, because nothing has changed. As was pointed out, here at FBEL, after the Commons vote, last week, to “rule out no-deal Brexit” (the lie du jour that was being put around)…

there was no new device whereby Parliament had replaced or withdrawn legislation concerning the default nature of a no-deal Brexit at the end of this month.

Nothing has changed. Therefore, what the British Government has been engaging in these past 24 hours, in connivance with the EU Commission, and European Council President and with whatever other tin-pot dictator who may have wondered into the Brussels meeting on route from surveying his fiefdom, when coming up with an Article 50 extension (so much for those EU leaders who were going to veto), is yet more grist to the scaremongering mill that is designed to inspire Britons to tolerate the Article 50 treaty. Please read the article† from which the above extract is taken to understand how crucial the ratification of the Article 50 treaty is for those who want parallel globalist development between the EU and Britain.

It appears that there is going to be another vote on the Article 50 treaty next week, and duly there is all sorts of scaremongering going on about what will happen if it doesn’t pass: “all options will remain open”, meaning, as some appear to think, the Commons will get to choose from a gamut of non-Brexity menu items: anything to frighten the bejesus out of the everyday Leave-voter. The thing is, dear reader, there is a tricky predicament that the UK Government must want to avoid like the plague – and this explains the extent of the psychological manipulation occurring right now, including scare headlines in Breitbart, and Parliament petitions to revoke Article 50, with accompanying marches in London tomorrow (all efforts so concerted, you just know that they have to be Government-organised).

Of course, this stuff is also meant to impress the everyday Leave-voter, just mentioned, with an idea that he is somehow in a diminishing majority, and that the tide is turning, and that he just better jolly well go along with the flow, and let the likes of Rees Mogg and his pretend-rebel ilk off the hook so that they can vote to ratify an appalling international treaty that didn’t even need a war to impose.

And yet, as information emerges, it appears that this ratification obstacle is only a vegetable side of a bigger meat dish. The chief problem for the Government is the 29th March leaving date, and this subject has been a major headache for observers of the Brexit circus trying to understand how Government thought it was going to overcome it. The BBC finally reveals:

Mrs May is expected to table secondary legislation – that has to go through the Commons and the Lords by next Friday – to remove 29 March from UK law.

But Downing Street sources say an agreement with the EU to extend the Brexit deadline would be a piece of international law and would take precedence even if Parliament rejected it.

Is that clear, dear reader? If Parliament does not extend the leaving date in UK law, then it won’t matter, because the ad hoc agreement that May made with Junkers and Tusk, and God knows who else, on 21st March, will take precedence. Of course, it is a crock of horse manure, but then that is the nature of government-by-deception: what Government says is reality is reality – and that is why it is criminal. The truth is this: when the British Government repeals the European Communities Act, 1972 (EC Act 72) then Britain leaves the EU: it is but a simple demonstration of the primacy of British law.

But of course, if UK Government is going to just ignore its own rulings, and break its own law, it opens up a whole can of worms. This is the tricky predicament abovementioned. So, we might predict that if the Commons ratifies the Article 50 treaty on Monday (which is when it is being touted to occur), then this might well create the momentum for Government to rattle an extension through Parliament lickety-split. However, if there isn’t ratification, then it might be a different matter. Now, it must be noted that  both possible outcomes of the ratification vote have been awarded grants of extension from the EU; if there is approval, “Brexit will be delayed until [22nd May]” (BBC), and if rejection, “The UK must propose a way forward before [12th April]… for consideration by EU leaders.” And so we might predict that if there is no ratification, then a situation will have been created whereby the British Government will let the 29th March pass by, with that date still being enshrined in British legislation as the day Britain leaves the EU, but without any enactment whereby the EC Act 72 is repealed‡ – or not fully in any case. As came to light in another recent FBEL article, there is a possibility that Government might be able to enact the Withdrawal Bill while postponing the repealing of the EC Act 72.

In any case, people are asking what to do about the rogue Parliament that now overtly and brazenly defies the “republic” (that is, We the People – a war was fought about this) of which it is merely an expression, and over which it is not a sovereign master. The answer at this stage is vigilance. We are looking for the EC Act 72 to be repealed. If 29th March passes, and it has not happened, Britain remains in the EU. That is when the struggle begins. Don’t go on the streets to protest – the Government has provocateurs to turn those sorts of things into riots, so that a no-deal Brexit is turned into a venture embarked upon and favoured by Nazis – according to lying pens and lips of lackey corporate-media. The Government will only take the slightest pretext (of its own creation) to fix Brexit the way it wants to once and for all (with “fix” being meant in the same sense as a losing race horse owner nobbling a competitor’s animal). FBEL will soon turn its full focus to discussing peaceful means to react to the unconcealable and undeniable loss of legitimacy that the Parliament in Westminster has already suffered.

 

† And please notice how, unless the author is entirely mistaken, the actual way the British Government has gone about getting an extension from the EU is completely not how it was sold in a motion that the Commons voted for. The wording was as follows:

If the House has passed a resolution approving the negotiated Withdrawal Agreement and the framework for the future relationship for the purposes of section 13(1)(b) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 by 20 March 2019 then the Government will seek to agree with the European Union a one-off extension of the period specified in Article 50(3) for a period ending on 30 June 2019 for the purpose of passing the necessary EU exit legislation.

The EU exit legislation is surely the Withdrawal Bill – not the vote to ratify the Article 50 treaty, which was taken as being referred to as the “resolution approving the negotiated Withdrawal Agreement [etc]”. If this is the case, then the cart has gone before the horse.  We are getting, are we not, a sense that actually, for the British Government, the legislative body for the “republic” is not a meaningful institution in terms of ruling the “republic”. Well, two can play at that game. And the “republic” doesn’t even begin to recognise EU sovereignty.

Update, 29th March 2019: As it turns out, Parliament whipped up a Statutory Instrument on 27th March to redefine “exit day” to mean either 22nd May, or 12th April, depending on circumstances. Basically, it wrote its own get out of jail card. Arbitrary rule making to manage its difficulties.
