Former CBI boss Jones: Beware 'tyrannical' Parliament making us a vassal state

Lord Digby Jones, the former Director General of the CBI (Confederation of British Industry) has said we need to be wary of a ‘tyrannical Parliament’ that wants to turn us into an EU vassal state.

“Just beware the tyranny of Parliament,” he told Julia Hartley-Brewer on her TalkRadio show,

“You’ve got something like 1,500 in the Houses of Parliament who look, by majority, to be overruling the wishes of 17.2 [sic] million people.

“The tyranny of Parliament is like the tyranny of kings, it’s like the tyranny of dictators, you’ve got to ensure there’s a representation aspect to it and not a personal view.

“Where I am very worried is that we could have a position where Parliament actually say: “I’ve done what the nation wanted. we’ve left the EU, that’s what you voted for…”

“Remoaners can say: “There you are, I’ve done what you’ve said, I respected you,” but what they’ve delivered is we’ve become a vassal state of an unelected and unaccountable dictatorship in Brussels.”
