A Bitter Brexiteer Took Out An Obituary In The Times To Mourn The Death Of UK Democracy For anyone who voted leave in the UK referendum, the month of March was a tough one to swallow. Instead of leaving the EU on the 29th as planned, MPs instead shot down Theresa May’s eleventh hour attempt to lock in a short extension of Article 50, which she said would “guarantee Brexit”. Now, after a string of failed attempts by MPs to take control of anything, Brexit Day has been shunted back to Halloween. In response, one evidently aggrieved Leave voter spent 87 British pounds on an obituary in The Times. Who died? UK democracy, apparently. It reads: UK Democracy on 29th March 2019, aged 312.

The Tottenham MP replied: "I would say that that wasn't strong enough. In 1938 there were allies who hatched a plan for Hitler to annex part of Czechoslovakia, and Churchill said no, and he stood alone.

"We must not appease. We're in a situation now, and let me just be clear, I'm an ethnic minority.

"We have, in the ERG, in Jacob Rees-Mogg, someone who is happy to put onto his web pages the horrible, racist AfD [Alternative for Germany] party, a party that's Islamophobic and on the far right.

“I don’t care how elected they were, so was the far-right in Germany.

“They’re often elected – often giving a cover for the thugs on the ground and I’m afraid when people are experiencing rising hate and extremism in this country we must not concede ground, we must fight it and call it out for what it is.”

Rees-Mogg, who heads the ERG, Tweeted: "I feel sorry for Mr Lammy, comparing a Parliamentary ginger group with an organisation and creed that killed six million Jewish people makes him look foolish and his comments unbalanced.

"It damages his reputation."

Theresa May Warned Fighting European Elections Would Be "Tory Suicide Note”.
Theresa May has been warned that a lengthy delay to Brexit could destroy the Conservative Party, with a minister claiming it would be a Tory “suicide note” if the UK had to fight the European elections. The stark warning about the “seismic” changes to British politics that would be unleashed if the May 23 European Parliament elections went ahead came as the government sought to revive talks with Labour aimed at finding a Brexit compromise. Education Minister Nadhim Zahawi said the situation needed to be resolved quickly in order to avoid the “existential threat” posed if the UK remained in the EU at the time of the elections next month.
