Brexit Exposed EDITORIAL: “Andrew Adonis’ letter to former minister and leading Brexiteer Iain Duncan Smith who told him to leave the country and ‘find somewhere else to live’ if he disagreed with Brexit.
The implication for the countless millions who don’t share the view of the hardline Brexit zealots is clear.
You don’t deserve British citizenship or the right to reside here.
You don’t have a basic right of free speech either – the same free speech enjoyed by Leave supporters for over four decades whilst in the European Union to question the issue of membership, or not.
This is totalitarianism, pure and simple. It’s the ideology behind the practice to arrest, deport or kill citizens who have a different political view to those in power.
It is the thinking behind authoritarian states throughout history. It is also the ideology behind the right wing cult of Brexit.
The Ian Duncan Smith remark is revealing. We see it in his supporters across social media every day.”
The choices facing Great Britain are not being accurately presented to the public.
Brexit is not inevitable. It is still legally reversible.
Parliament has not yet decided to withdraw from the EU.
A Vote on the Deal could be given to the People.
“‘The binary choice which faced the electorate in the referendum’ is every bit as important now… And it is a dereliction of your public duty to issue editorial guidance to the contrary”.
From Andrew Adonis on Twitter: “My letter to Lord Hall, BBC director-general, asking him to withdraw BBC’s editorial guidance that it is ‘no longer reporting on the binary choice’ for/against Brexit. Parliament hasn’t yet decided whether we are leaving EU next March & this remains massive issue of public debate.”
