What Brexit Should mean but probably won't
We must demand not just the honouring of the spirit of Brexit which means the full repatriation of powers from Brussels but also the dissolution of those very powers altogether for if they are merely duplicated in Westminster it will be a pyrrhic victory indeed. I fear it will turn out to be just that as our own politicians are power lusters and they will naturally seek to guard and gather such powers jealously to themselves rather than relinquishing them. We may find that the Westminster dispensation is no different from the Brussels one but all the more chagrining and onerous in that it will be our own government doing the enslaving. This we must guard against but I am not optimistic.
