David Lammy MP urges: ‘stop the madness’ of democracy and reject Brexit vote

lammy brexitThe Labour MP David Lammy MP wants Parliament to ignore the EU referendum result. He wants Parliament to go against the will of the people, the majority of whom voted for the UK to leave the European Union. The people who rejected the establishment, the liberal elite, the knowing  celebrities, the multi-nationals, the doom-mongers and the bankers got it wrong, says Lammy, a member of a Party divorced from its once core vote. Says the self-regarding one:

Wake up. We do not have to do this.

We can stop this madness and bring this nightmare to an end through a vote in Parliament. Our sovereign Parliament needs to now vote on whether we should exit the EU. The referendum was an advisory, non-binding referendum. The Leave campaign’s platform has already unravelled and some people wish they hadn’t voted to Leave. Parliament now needs to decide whether we should go forward with Brexit, and there should be a vote in Parliament next week. Let us not destroy our economy on the basis of lies and the hubris of Boris Johnson.

He’s right. The European Referendum is non biding. The vote is not law. What it was was a free and fair vote on staying in or leaving the European Union. Lammy doesn’t much like the result. He says the people cannot be trusted to make the right decision. They made a mistake. So he wants them to be ignored. He wants change stopped.

A US readers has written in. He puts it well:

CONGRATULATIONS !!! Leaving the EU has been too long in coming. We have a similar situation here in the USA. For us Washington D.C. is about identical to the EU leadership with re: to their relationship with all the individual states. An entrenched cadre of infinitely corrupt career politicians control or try to control every aspect of our lives from fortress Washington D.C. just as the EU leadership has imposed their will on Great Britain and other EU member countries. The politicians keep getting richer while our middle class is dying along with many small towns all across our country. Our fast growing national debt tells the story. The politicians are spending money we don’t have to shore up their power. Anyway so very happy for your good fortune.

Lammy thinks you’re idiots. You are if you listen to him.

Get Theresa May To Sort Out Duggan Shooting Inquiry Says Tottenham MP

MayHOME Secretary Theresa May should take charge of the investigation into the fatal police shooting of Mark Duggan, 29, in Tottenham because of increasing concerns over how it is being handled, the local MP said today.

Tottenham MP David Lammy said there had been a “catalogue of very public errors” surrounding the investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Two of the three community leaders appointed to oversee the IPCC inquiry had quit, claiming the investigation was “flawed and in all probability tainted”.

See Police start Kettling The Guardian.

See this Full Story from The London Evening Standard.

There could be a small problem with that cunning plan.

Obama Is Right: There Are No Jews In Westminster And The Media

MORE on post-racial life in the WACO (World according to Obama): Jews are no longer an ethnic minority.

The Guardian wonders why last year’s Media Guardian 100 (an arbitrary list of the big players in the media) featured no ethnic minorities.

We asked a panel of experts drawn from ethnic minorities to name their 30 most important media figures.

And – get this – the panel didn’t name one Jew in the media. So much for them controlling it. But it’s not a perfect science:

Britain’s Barack Obama

IT’S Bazza Obama. No, not him. Him!

David Lammy is pushing himself as Britain’s Barack Obama. Lammy claims they are “friends.” But what about Tory MP for Windsor Adam Afriyie like Obama a handsome 40-something who played basketball at college and is in his first term as a national legislator.

Basketball… Britain’s answer to Obama, not Britain’s Obama-a-like…
