THE only consistency in the Conservative Party policy of the past four years has been the desire to neutralise Nigel Farage’s parties.

David Cameron thought he could achieve this through a Remain victory in poorly-planned referendum.

Theresa May and Boris Johnson think they can achieve the same aim via the opposite policy of “delivering Brexit” at any cost.

Meanwhile public opinion has started shifting – a recent poll of polls suggests that there has been a majority favouring Remain since the end of 2017.

The vote in 2016 was blind with no specified Brexit alternative. The subsequent three years have shown that the Brexit campaign in 2016 was based on false promises.

As the Brexiteer David Davis said in 2002: “Referendums should be held when people know exactly what they are getting … we should not ask people to vote on a blank sheet and tell them to trust us to fill in the details afterwards.”

In 2016 Nigel Farage had stated that a narrow Remain win would lead to a second referendum. The Brexit controversy will never end without a confirmatory referendum on a well-defined Brexit proposal.

David Davis also said: “If a democracy cannot change its mind, it ceases to be a democracy.”
