Our Democracy Is Under Threat

Boris Johnson is trying to destroy democracy.  He is trying to steal our democracy from us by shutting down our parliament. This is an unelected leader voted in by a few Tories unrepresentative of our country. A unelected leader pushing through an agenda people didn’t vote for. No-Deal wasn’t put to us in the referendum, it wasn’t put to us during the 2017 election. He is subverting the will of parliament, who expressly ruled out a no deal. How? By shutting down our parliament and removing our voice. We must rise and make our voices heard and tell him that he can’t take our democracy away from us and destroy our country. 
Some detractors say this is normal for a new government. A lie. In over 70 years there has never been such a long proroguing, let alone at a time of national crisis. How is it democratic for an unelected PM to close our elective parliament because it doesn’t agree with him? They say its fine as Parliament rises during this time for party conference season, and that is true but the parliament is still in session and can be recalled unlike when it is prorogued. They say it is the will of the people… but are too scared to ask the people if they want a No-Deal.
We must protest to save democracy. We must protest to make our voices heard. The protection of democracy is a cause we all should fight for. This isn’t just a fight to protect ideals, but to protect the lives of those most vulnerable from a No-Deal Brexit. This is nothing but an assault on our democracy and our safety as citizens. So, Boris Johnson, you can shut down our parliament but you can’t shut down our voice. Our Democracy will triumph against tinpot dictators.  SAVE OUR DEMOCRACY!
