In the words of the grocer's daughter from Grantham, they're Frit. Oh yes, MPs really want to cancel Brexit, are committed to cancel Brexit and now have the means to cancel Brexit, but just don't quite dare do the deed. Somewhere in their mendacious, fraudulent half-wit hearts is either a residual pang of conscience or a spark of rationality. They are aware at some level that to cancel Brexit will mean their own destruction, savaged at the polls, despised by those they ask to cast ballots for them. Most MPs put one duty before all others - way in front of country, constituency or party - and that is their duty of self-interest, their obligation to themselves and their own wealth and advancement. That's why they're Frit.
So on this day, when we should have been riotous with joy at being free from the malign clutches of the Federasts, these craven narcissists will choose the path of deferring their cancellation of Brexit. A path that keeps us in the clutches of Brussels in a half-way measure. And their pusillanimity will turn around and bite their arses; Farage will storm the EP elections, Cummings will lead us in a crushing second referendum victory and finally we will cull this foetid House of its betrayers, frauds and liars and fill the green benches with those who represent the interests of the people of Britain and not solely those of their own discredited patrician elite.
Bring it on!
