Published

A YouGov poll shows that every region of England and Wales with the exception of London wants Brexit to go through.

On top of that, voters want to leave the European Union even if Theresa May’s government cannot reach a deal by April 12 .

46 percent favor a No Deal Brexit in the Midlands and Wales. On the other hand, 31 percent want to stay in the EU.

That being said, YouGov found very different results in London, where 26 percent of voters support Brexit and 48 percent want to remain in the EU.

The YouGov poll asked a simple question: “If Britain has not agreed a deal by April 12, what do you think should happen?”

Scotland had similar results to London, with 28 percent of voters in support of No Deal.

With the British government failing to reach a deal, an air of uncertainty has emerged in the UK.

Although April 12, 2019 is the date for the Brexit deadline with the EU, several members of the British parliament have been trying to extend this deadline to strike a deal with the EU and conduct a Brexit on more favorable terms.

However, Politico reports that European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker stated that there would be no short extension for Brexit once the April 12 deadline arrives.

Junker reiterated, “If the House of Commons does not adopt a stance by that date, no extension, no short-term extension will be possible. After April 12, we run the risk to jeopardize the correct running of the European elections and function of the European Union.”

As the Brexit deadline quickly approaches, all eyes are on Britain.

Brexit was the the major catalyst behind Europe’s recent populist shift that witnessed governments from Italy to Poland embrace tougher stances against the EU’s migratory policies.

The social effects of mass migration have hit the UK hard, especially London with its migrant ghettoes and a rising degree of violent crime. A potential derailment of Brexit could prove to be a risky endeavor and possibly lay the groundwork for the rise of Britain’s Yellow Vest protests.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
