The Game of Blames

The Blame game seems to be the primary strategy of the government. Boris Johnson and members of his cabinet have blamed parliament for enacting the Benn Bill, which legally forces Boris Johnson to write a letter to the European Union and ask for an extension until January if no deal can be made. Boris Johnson and his government have also blamed the judiciary, specifically the Supreme Court who ruled that his decision to suspend parliament was unlawful this September. This came after the first Supreme Court ruling in 2017 that ruled in favour of giving MP’s a say over triggering Article 50 - the legal mechanism taking the UK out of the EU. Both of these cases led by business woman and campaigner Gina Miller. So who else is the UK government blaming? Well there’s then those people who run the EU. Donald Tusk unleashed a tweet this morning that read as follows:

"@Boris Johnson, what's at stake is not winning some stupid blame game. At stake is the future of Europe and the UK as well as the security and interests of our people. You don't want a deal, you don't want an extension, you don't want to revoke, quo vadis?
