Globalists Exploit U.K. Election Fiasco in Bid to Derail Brexit

Brexit is in danger of being derailed by establishment globalists. A snap election called by controversial U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May to ostensibly help the Conservative (Tory) Party gain a larger majority in Parliament has resulted in what is being painted as a humiliating defeat, sparking calls for her resignation and for a rethink of Brexit. While the Tories are still the largest bloc in the U.K. House of Commons, they lost their majority. Ultra-far-left leader Jeremy Corbyn and his Labour Party, who said they would honor the Brexit vote as well, picked up most of the seats lost by Conservatives.

What exactly the stunning election results mean for the British exit from the European Union, known as Brexit, is not yet clear. But with May focusing on curtailing fundamental freedoms under the guise of “terror,” more than a few globalists are working to exploit the general election result to undermine British voters' clear vote last year for a restoration of self-government via secession from the EU. In fact, some globalist voices are painting that outcome as inevitable, suggesting a “soft” Brexit non-exit from the EU might be better. A number of voices even suggested the entire election disaster was in fact part of a plot to derail independence. And May, of course, was actually an opponent of Brexit before the referendum

But lead Brexit supporters such as Nigel Farage have vowed to see the independence effort through to a successful conclusion, even if it means getting back into politics. “If my worst fears are confirmed, if we don’t get the kind of Brexit that I wanted and that people voted for, then I would have no choice but to involve myself again with full-time campaigning,” said former UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage, perhaps the most important figure in the successful British vote to leave the EU superstate, in an interview with the BBC blasting May and her decision to call an early election. “I'm very angry this morning. We were on course for Brexit, and suddenly we may not be.”

The British “snap” election this week was not even necessary. But, with polls showing that the Conservative Party would crush the Labour Party under the leadership of its radical chief, May was supposedly hoping to strengthen her position ahead of upcoming negotiations with the EU for Brexit. Instead, the Tories were crushed, relatively speaking, losing 13 seats in Parliament — along with their outright majority from two years ago, which left them at just under 49 percent support. Corbyn and his Labour Party, meanwhile, picked up a dozen seats, giving them 40 percent control. Minor parties kept the rest.
