Dominic Grieve has been at pains this week to tell us all that his supposed meaningful vote in Parliament on the Brexit deal, was not designed to frustrate the Brexit process but merely to maintain”rational” debate.
However, the former Attorney-General was spotted yesterday at the European Commission’s Smith Square HQ in London meeting with a bunch of anti- Brexit campaigners determined to reverse the referendum result.
The pro-EU love-in included Tony Blair’s former spin doctor Alastair Campbell and Tory and Liberal Democrat peers who have rebelled over Brexit. Also present were leaders of People’s Vote, which campaigns for a second referendum, Open Britain, the successor organisation to the official Remain campaign, and Best for Britain, the anti-Brexit group backed by billionaire George Soros.
An agenda for the ‘Where Next for Brexit?’ meeting was marked ‘in confidence’ but is believed to say “this informal forum connects the main operational UK pro-EU organisations and individuals and meets under the Chatham House Rule.’
Mr Grieve’s secret meetings with anti-Brexit elitists seems to suggest that his protestations about “rational” debate are completely ridiculous. Peoples Vote for example, exists solely to frustrate Brexit; they have organised a march in protest of Brexit and demanding a second vote next weekend in Central London, because apparently the first vote, where they didn’t get their way, wasn’t good enough.
Open Britain has openly commented on their opposition to Brexit. Billionaire backer George Soros has said the vote has been “immensely damaging.” Yes, a European billionaire has told the 17.4 million people that their autonomous decision was “immensely damaging.”
Alastair Campbell, who has penned a number of articles telling the United Kingdom how ignorant they were to vote for Brexit, now dedicates his considerable amount of time and money to reversing the British peoples decision.
This group exists solely to undermine and frustrate the Brexit process and for Mr Grieve to pretend that he isn’t attempting to help them in their quest is not only embarrassing, it’s also insulting. It’s insulting to the people who voted for Brexit and believed David Cameron when he told them that it was their decision.
Mr Grieve must remember that many people voted for Brexit because they were sick of Chatham House rules in the confines of SW1. To outrightly pretend that he isn’t trying to frustrate Brexit indicates he believes the British people are ignorant and stupid.
