Not only do the Quitters want the Remain campaigners to argue both sides of the case, they also want guarantees from the Government about what will happen in the event of a Brexit.
But the Quitters must have a plan for what happens if they win, mustn’t they?
Don’t tell me that Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, Dominic Cummings, Bill Cash, John Redwood, Kate Hoey et al are REALLY campaigning to get the UK out of the EU WITHOUT a plan for what happens in the event of a Brexit.
If the Quitters were to manage to “Take Control”, wouldn’t a sensible option be for the Government to resign and for the Quitters to form a government and DELIVER on their assertions?
A cabinet of Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, Iain Duncan Smith, Liam Fox, John Redwood, Priti Patel, Kate Hoey backed up by Daniel Hannah, Dominic Cummings, Nigel Farage, Douglas Carslake etc plus the likes of Arron Banks running the UK and delivering on the ASSERTIONS of the Quitters and all the time guaranteeing that we will be better off.
Sorry, I had my tongue so far in my cheek I almost bit it off.
Why ask a Prime Minister who is clearly in favour of the UK Remaining in the EU to set out a plan for what happens in the unlikely event that the Quitters win?
Isn’t a post-Brexit plan what the Quitters are supposed to be setting out?
And that is the problem.
The Quitters have no alternative to offer, they just have the arguments based on personal advancement, prejudice and vague assertions that the UK (they) will be better off if the UK leaves the EU.
So what do they do? They insist that the Remainers should argue both sides of the case, and that any attempt to point out the flaws in their (the Quitters’) argument is “scaremongering”.
When they can’t respond sensibly to fact-based opinions, they accuse people of bias, self-interest, being bribed by the EU – anything but face up to the questions asked.
They shout the ad-hominem arguments as loudly as possible to distract us AND themselves from the paucity of their case.
