Brexit was the largest plebiscite ever held in the United Kingdom, with the majority voting in the referendum to leave the European Union, and become a sovereign nation once again.
The people gave a decisive yes to freedom from the EU.
Yet many politicians thought they knew better than the people.
One of those MPs is Jo Johnson.
I travelled to the town of Orpington, the parliamentary constituency on the south east London/Kent borders that Mr. Johnson represents.
Mr. Johnson is an anti-Brexit Conservative MP, but his constituents voted to Leave. There are moves to unseat him as he’s been very rude about Leave voters, his voters, and doesn’t respect the outcome of the referendum.
This matters as Mr. Johnson is a former universities minister in Mrs. May’s government, and interestingly, he once said that people who hadn’t gone to university had the propensity to vote Brexit.
These are astonishingly rude comments by someone who had been to an elite fee paying school, and spent his university years at the elite Brussels University.
Many people were quite rightly offended by his comments; basically he was calling Brexiteers thick, stupid, unable to understand the complex issues of the EU, and therefore were wrong.
I visited his constituency office to send the message that his views are disgraceful, and because he looks down upon his constituents, many believe he should be deselected as Orpington’s MP, the Conservative whip withdrawn, and a real Brexiteer who believes in Britain should be appointed in his place.
