Sputnik spoke with political Campaigner Michael Swadling for more…
Sputnik: Should the UK just revert to WTO rules instead of extending Article Fifty?
It would've been great if we could have got a free trade deal with the EU, but clearly they are completely intransigent so that's not an option, so to remain a democracy in this country we need to leave the EU on the 29th of March, and that would mean reverting to WTO rules for that.
Sputnik: Do the British public have the right to be outraged by the failure of the politicians to negotiate a Brexit deal?
Michael Swadling: There's a simmering anger at what's happening, and there's a right to be angry. Since 1832 with the Great Reform Act; we have had a series of laws passed extending the franchise further and further in this country, making us more democratic.
In recent years we've seen greater use of referenda to make big constitutional choices; when there's one the establishment don't like, they are throwing away our democracy. There should be anger, there should be problems, and these people are effectively declaring war on the British people.
Sputnik: How bad a job has Prime Minister Theresa May done in negotiating Brexit?
She stood on a manifesto in 2017 saying that we would leave the customs union and the single market, and that was a complete and utter lie, nothing Theresa May says can be taken at face value, she's a proven liar to those closest to her, and the people she's there to represent.
