Letter from a local businessman to Mr. Huw Merriman, the Conservative MP for Bexhill & Battle constituency in East Sussex.
It was great to see you again this evening, and thank you so much for presenting your own and the government’s position on Brexit. It is a pity that there is such a lack of discipline in the House. Perhaps members should remember the old adage that a Board, or Cabinet, or Parliament, should have many minds but only one voice. Any attempts to revisit, rewrite history, or overthrow the majority view are counterproductive and in a company Boardroom would require the sacking of those responsible.
We have decided to leave the EU. It is now everyone’s duty to make that decision work for this country’s best interests regardless of the views they held before the vote. Anyone unable to do this should consider their position.
As a businessman, my companies trade successfully with all major markets throughout the world. I am perfectly content to trade with EU countries in the same way that I trade with the USA, Canada, Brazil, Australia, Japan, and China. People do not buy goods because there is a trade deal or customs union. They buy goods to satisfy their wants and needs at an affordable price. Buyers are interested in performance, quality, and value, not certificates of origin or global politics. Hence, I drive a Tesla car made in California; my computer software comes from Seattle; my shirt is made of Egyptian cotton and my tie from Thai silk; my towels are from Turkey, and my wine from New Zealand. I’m able to buy all these products, and more, despite the fact the U.K. has no trade deal with any of these countries and none are in the EU.
Our starting point with the EU should be “No Deal”. This needs to be our default position. Anything else is a bonus. It is this scenario which the government and Whitehall needs to communicate to the world. Failure will land us with BRINO or Brexit in name only, whereby we become a vassal state of rule takers. This is probably the worst possible outcome to the negotiations, and therefore the goal of the Brussels negotiators.
I believe it is now essential for those of us who still have the Bulldog spirit to ramp up our lobbying, start thinking about large scale, organised marches on Westminster, and do everything we can to make it clear to those who would sell this country down the river, that there will be blood on the streets before they achieve their greedy and selfish ends.

Letter from Democracy 17.4 Campaigns Officer to her local MP.
Dear Ms. O'Donelan
I hope that you are well. As my constituency MP, I noticed that you were recently taking evidence from George Osborne on behalf of the Northern Powerhouse in respect of education. I do not know if you are aware but the aforementioned person is currently attending the Bilderberg Meeting in Turin as I type and is a 'regular'.
In 2010, former NATO Secretary-General and Bilderberg member Willy Claes admitted that Bilderberg attendees are mandated to implement decisions that are formulated during the annual conference of power brokers. If this is the case, it would violate laws in numerous countries that forbid politicians from being influenced by foreign agents in secret.
It therefore stands to reason that you are now connected to Osborne and I require an immediate report as to why you sought the advice of a Bilderberg attendee when formulating plans for this country.
It is imperative that I receive an immediate response before I consider taking this matter to the Press/exposing this 'oversight' by film.
I look forward to hearing from you.
