At the last count, 160 anti no deal Brexit MPs have signed a document called the 'Church House Declaration' promising to do whatever is necessary to ensure the people's voice is heard.


This afternoon, 160 MPs signed an anti-no deal Brexit pledge called the 'Church House Declaration'.

This states:

"Shutting down Parliament would be an undemocratic outrage at such a crucial moment for our country, and a historic constitutional crisis.

"Any attempt to prevent Parliament sitting, to force through a no deal Brexit, will be met by strong and widespread democratic resistance.

"We pledge to work together across parties and across our nations to do whatever is necessary to ensure that the people's voice is able to be heard."

Well, I would think that Brexiteers would have a message to throw back at you!

And that would be that shutting down Brexit, as just about all of you all obviously want to do, would be the real undemocratic outrage – an outrage of epic proportions.

And should you be successful in doing so, it would lead to massive uncertainty, potential unrest and a real constitutional crisis.

Brexiteers worked tirelessly and democratically through the system over decades and won the day in a proper democratic referendum.

So for you to use those chilling words at the end of that statement, that you pledge to do 'whatever is necessary' to overturn the largest exercise in democracy this country has ever seen, beggars belief.

And it also reads like a charter to invade the parliament buildings, if prorogued.

And then you have the gall to talk about the people's voice being heard – it was heard, back on the 23rd of June 2016, but you refused to listen to it, or to act on it. In fact, you worked against it. You are the architects of the current situation.

And that is the biggest constitutional and democratic failure of all.

Also, what if that document is seen by the more unbalanced of the Remain campaign as a green light to engage in highly unsavoury activity.

It could in fact amount to an incitement. Emotions are running high enough over Brexit as it is.

But Remainers would, of course, blame the Brexiteers if anything untoward were to happen, wouldn't they?

Now, had a Brexiteer put out such a belligerent statement I bet it would be roundly condemned by the Remainers!

So, they surely must change that comment to read 'whatever is lawful'.

In fact, why did it not say that clearly in the first place during these highly charged times? Why would 160 MPs sign such a contentious pledge?

My advice to Brexiteers would be to stay cool and demand that the wording is changed to make clear only lawful measures will be acceptable.
