BORIS Johnson must defy this rogue Remainer Parliament to the end. It is not merely useless, not just unworthy of public respect. It is illegitimate — and the vast majority of voters know it.
Many of its MPs were elected in the first place on a platform of lies:
That they would honour the Brexit referendum, when in truth they would look for any excuse to reverse it. That they believed “No Deal was better than a bad deal” when they would resign their Government posts and betray their party if No Deal looked likely.
Some Tories supposedly committed to Brexit were closet Lib-Dem Remainers. Some Labour MPs were too. None have respected our democracy enough to seek a new mandate at a by-election.
Others, seduced by Remainer cheerleaders in the media and on Twitter, decided any pro-Brexit promises could be jettisoned — and to hell with voters.
Labour too vowed to respect 17.4million Leavers, about four million of them traditionally on the Left. It has now finally committed to betraying them all.
So now, having put the referendum result into law, Remainers seek to overturn it via preventing our departure on October 31. How? By seizing entirely new, improper powers for themselves in open defiance of our constitution and the public.
MPs’ role is to scrutinise and amend Government legislation and, if need be, defeat it and replace that Government in an election. Instead, terrified of Boris winning, this appalling group deployed their shyster Speaker John Bercow to help install themselves as a parallel, unaccountable Remainer Government with no mandate.
Bercow is no longer a Speaker. He long ago betrayed his office and its historic impartiality. He is an imposter. An ego-driven Remain activist, sniggering behind his “b***ocks to Brexit” bumper sticker, verbosely denouncing Leave-backing politicians, debasing the vital role he should never have held.
His Remainer friends deliberately kept him in place to thwart Brexit. They knew a successor would not let them.
And Bercow rewarded them by bulldozing convention and granting them power to create law. They have defeated the Government on its central policy — but intend to keep it trapped in office for fear that an election will hand Boris the convincing victory polls indicate. The Commons Remainer majority is literally trying to force our Brexit-backing PM to enact a policy with which his Government violently disagrees and runs directly counter to both its interests and, in our view, Britain’s.
They seek to use Boris as their puppet, absurdly threatening him with JAIL if he refuses. Shamefully, they have shut out the electorate — and its Brexit-backing majority — because they fear it.
What is their ultimate aim? To induce such a crisis that they can successfully argue for a second referendum or for Brexit to be scrapped. Only inside Westminster’s Remainer echo-chamber do these look like viable options. The real-world damage will be catastrophic.
This is not a game. Ian Blackford, an odious little Humpty Dumpty figure from the SNP, thinks it is, reportedly gloating that Boris is his “prisoner”. Consider that: it amuses a party devoted to breaking up the UK that our Government is paralysed. But this is a violation of our democracy. A grotesque insult to the electorate.
Millions cherish their vote. It’s the only voice they have — and they are itching to exercise it. They believe London’s politicians should keep their promises and are watching these repugnant antics in horror. All the while, Boris is climbing in most polls.
This Parliament is illegitimate. Whether its Bill to prevent Brexit on October 31 is invalid too is for the Supreme Court to judge. But Boris must fight it to the very end on behalf of Leave voters, plus the many Remainers who did accept defeat with good grace and value our democracy above all.
Boris will not, must not, cannot beg the EU for yet another aimless delay. Nor must he allow himself to be forced by court order to do so.

The Sun believes voters will rally behind the man who stood against these charlatans. They have all but destroyed faith in our democracy and are poised, via referendum or revoking Article 50, to deliver the fatal blow.
The first chance it gets, the public will remove many of them from office, and rightly so.
They no longer deserve their place in Westminster.
