Why I, an architect, stood as a Brexit Party candidate in the election

Comment

I applaud Ike Ijeh for standing for Parliament, as he says more architects should do so. As for his reasons for standing for the Brexit Party; The current Withdrawal Agreement is worse than the one negotiated by Mrs May. It is very unlikely anyone could have improved on it to Mr Ijeh's satisfaction. His second reason - I agree. Thirdly, democracy… On a fundamental constitutional issue, the Referendum vote should have needed more than a simple majority. When the "Second Referendum' was run as an election, hugely more people voted against the current Withdrawal Agreement than for it. Where's the democracy in that. We have yet to agree a trade deal with the EU. I guess we will drop out because of BJ's desire to lower standards. Do we really want to lower standards? More Grenfells ?
