Re: Taking back control

This certainly seems to be the line of, presumably, social media fed vox pops.

Mind you, Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition has contributed to this by steadfastly refusing to adopt a position over the key issue.

Instead of the government suspending parliament, it should parliament suspending government and forming a true government of national unity to take care of business until negotiations with the rest of the EU 27 have reached a satisfactory conclusion. Easy enough if you get parliament involved in the negotiations, something which May refused to do and which Boris won't even countenance.

I guess the plan is to try and ride out the protests, crash out and hope for a wave of patriotism in the ensuing general election.
