For months now Brexiteers have been warning about motorways getting blocked and the real dangers associated with delaying Brexit. That No Deal was actually the easy way out for our ruling class. That their Project Fear would actually only come to pass if they were so stupid as to delay Brexit.
Well, last night they were that stupid.
This afternoon the M5 and the M4 will suffer a go-slow blockade. This will be followed at a later date no doubt by a stranglehold put on the M25 by trucks, tankers and tractors. Project Fear seems it could come to pass – ironically for not leaving the EU on time rather than for the reasons the Remain Establishment predicted.
Brexit Direct Action aim to organise ‘go-slow’ blockades on the country’s major motorways in order to “bring this country to its knees”. Lorry drivers will drive slowly on the roads or even stop on carriageways to deliver their pro-Brexit message.
The group previously shared on Twitter: “Several social media groups have been in contact to ask if we’ll help gather support for a national truck drivers protest if #Brexit is delayed.
“Brexiteers all over the country are planning to bring this country to its knees by blocking the main arterial routes – M1, M6 M25, M62, A1, A55, M5, M4, M42, M55, M61, A66 etc.
“If you live close to one of these major motorways and are willing to take part then prepare to move at short notice.”
A two week delay may not seem like much to some people. To others it is a denial of their democratic vote.
What sad times to witness – when our leaders are that disrespectful to voters they can’t even enact their will. What next? The gilets jaunes in Westminster?
Britain we are better than this.
Wake up you dim politicians.
