“The consequences of every act are in the act itself”. Orwell.
Having a unique perspective on #Brexit since late 2016 and going public with it in Berlin on 25th June 2017, I have been via Twitter @GasGilligan trying to warn politicians & the general public that a Brexit COBRA Cabinet military deployment (or attempt to) has always been inevitable, as I reinforced on the anniversary of my Berlin based exposure, during which I warned five different agencies.
The deployment will be portrayed by the media as a consequence of Government ‘incompetence’. It isn’t.
Why am I so certain this is the case? Because from my perspective, under the guise of ‘news’, of keeping us ‘informed’, the media have actually been telling us for some time by drip-fed propaganda. I believe we are being psychologically softened-up for this ‘inevitability’.
But this morning, seeing Boris Johnson on British State mouthpiece #Marr Show, Dominic Raab on Sky News & later Mundell on Sunday Politics ‘Scotland’ with Gordon Brewer and the #Remainer commentariat, all still going around the same Hobson’s Choice narrative between Theresa #GroundhogMay’s #Brexit ‘Deal’ & ‘No Deal’ – was yet another final straw.
How people can’t or won’t see it isn’t beyond me – I know why, it’s in ‘Gaslighting Gilligan’ and I’ve written about it extensively in my blog since – but we have to wake up to the immediacy of the impending #BrexitCoup militarisation before we can ever visit why we’ve refused to cognitively process the propaganda by omission and commission and acknowledge ‘It’.
To acknowledge the same unworkable dead-end ‘choice’ that’s been raging and #Agitate(ing) in Parliament and on our screens for over TWO YEARS without ever politically moving forward – because politically – it isn’t meant to move forward.
The result is the respected #Remain-commentariat ‘Groundhog Day’ responses are facilitating & feeding into exactly what the Tory Party need us to believe; the illusion of an internal Cabinet/Backbench ‘civil-war’.
An illusion in which, the general public are also being drip-fed, spoon-fed in fact, a victimhood narrative that blames everyone and everything from the ERG to the EU (the former is attempting disintegrate and destroy the latter) is all underpinned by an ‘indefatigable‘, ‘resilient’ complicit Prime Minister and a complicit media selling us front-row tickets to rote-scripted rhetoric-theatre; of a ‘stoic’, ’embattled’ Churchillian- ‘leader’, ‘fighting’ for Britain in order to elicit an emotionalised combination of fanatical, patriotic and manipulated-pity support.
Plausible as it appears on the surface, there is no internal Tory-war. It’s classic misdirection; a media-political ‘rope-a-dope’ playing for time; playing for our buy-in.
And fake ultimately, because both scenarios – and no Brexit at all – all lead to the military being deployed on the streets of Britain. So, no matter the pretext – ‘all roads (aptly) lead to Rome’; militarisation.
Our problem is that whilst we will all readily acknowledge the past skullduggery-deceptions of the British State waged against the working masses, we collectively lack the Machiavellian imagination and the confidence to apply the lessons of historic and recent past – especially the wholesale media omission of #VoteLeave illegality – and apply Occam’s Razor in the present, to call it out – as it’s happening.
What we are actually witnessing is the orchestrated British elite-estate #gaslighting of the entire UK populace.
This has been the PlanB purpose of the deliberately drawn-out, failing coup faux-argument between the two ‘options’ and the #ToryAnalytica ‘in-fighting’ factions;
to normalise over an extended period time, by a mainstream media-led information war ‘inevitability narrative’, that psychosocially ‘nudges’ us all over a receptive-line, to accept in advance a supposed ‘chance’ of Brexit militarisation.
This is in order the softened-up general public will be more susceptible to comply with faux political-media lionised “brave”, “heroes” & acquiesce to – military-backed ‘rule of law’; a manipulated ‘National Emergency’ which in all likelihood, will begin by marshalling trucks, food & medicines etc at Dover but will end in (attempted) military-backed ‘democracy’ i.e. dictatorship.
“One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish a dictatorship”. Orwell.
In any rational-thinking and intuitive persons book, Government militarisation to support or enforce a ‘democratic’ decision – is a coup d’etat. Plain & simple; there can be no democracy exceptions; not even by ‘British exceptionalism’ standards.
If these events were happening in Eastern Europe or Africa we’d call it out as a ‘coup‘. If it were being war-gamed in Western military Staff colleges, the conclusion would be ‘coup’. But somehow, despite the Occam’s Razor evidence – and Orwell & Huxley’s warnings, we in Britain have convinced ourselves we’re above such fascist behaviour?! Get a grip!
And seriously, we’re being warned off for such an eventuality, so why don’t Opposition politicians propose a Parliamentary amendment that states any eventuality that requires the military to be deployed, automatically makes Brexit null & void?
“There is something wrong with a regime that requires a pyramid of corpses every few years”. Orwell.
NB: Brexit has always been an Anglo-centric project. Can I suggest that It remains an Anglo-centric project? Because Northern Ireland, Wales & Scotland have already paid far too high a price in blood and treasure, as so-called ‘partners’ in this Westminster-aristocracy led, so-called ‘Union’…
Post-Edit: The Government Attorney Generals’ attempt to withhold ‘negotiation‘ information from Parliament; the historically unprecedented ruling to hold Government in contempt of Parliament; the Government decision to cancel the Parliamentary Meaningful Vote; the Government No Confidence vote on Theresa May’s Premiership – all playing for time – and we all need to snap out of It.
We’re in historically unprecedented times and territory because a coup d’etat of this magnitude has never been so catastrophically interrupted before, as it’s been underway…
