How dare they take us for fools: DANIEL HANNAN blasts MPs who claim they only want to avoid No Deal and then dodge a vote on one

It is not their dishonesty that rankles. It is the insult to our intelligence.

For three years, Labour and Lib Dem MPs have twisted and turned, seeking to wriggle out of the promises they had given in advance to accept the referendum result.

In the process, they have smashed up our constitution. They have ignored the norms on which our democracy rests. They have torn precedent to shreds.

They have politicised the Speaker’s chair. They have turned us against one another. They have made our country a laughing stock abroad.

Yet still they carry on, telling us their unconstitutional schemes are somehow all about upholding our constitution, claiming that their contempt for democracy is about trusting the people.

On Saturday, they reached their lowest point yet. Having gone to court to demand that MPs have a ‘meaningful vote’ on the Brexit terms, they chose, when the moment came, to avoid that vote.
