This started with Andre Lilico, a Brexiteer economist, who was apoplectic that the Queen had done such a thing and posted several angry tweets, voicing his dismay, labelling the monarchy 'not fit for purpose' and the bill 'constitution-violating abomination'.
If the govt recommends Royal Assent is granted, despite the bill being a constitution-violating abomination. https://t.co/QCRjtmeHRQ
As you can see from those few tweets, Brexiteers are completely rattled about all this and as already mentioned it appears they are now attempting to pass the buck to the Queen as they aren't getting the Brexit they wanted.
This ridiculous line of thinking was perfectly summed up by LBC Radio's James O'Brien who surmised that Brexiteers are now prepared to literally blame anyone else but themselves.
On his show on Tuesday, O'Brien said:
You'll remember when I used to say to you, 'where will the blame go next?'
I used to joke that they are going to blame Lily Allen, Gary Lineker, JK Rowling, they are all going to get the blame.
Now it's the Queen. You think I'm joking? Andrew Lilico who is an economist, of sorts, tied to the ERG, whenever they are looking for a cloak of plausibility, he has tweeted today that this is the monarchy's fault.
Suzanne Evans, again this shrinking band of figures who cheerlead for Brexit their entire lives she said that [what Lilico said] is 'spot on.'
They are blaming the Queen for the current mess because the only alternative is to blame themselves.
It means that the delusion is now completely next level, that the idea of who are we going to blame now, whose fault can it be.
What is the alternative to turning around and saying sorry, like Peter Oborne did yesterday?
They now have three choices: either carry on unicorning, which would involve pretending that no-deal is going to be anything other than a catastrophe.
Or they can say sorry, made a mistake, perhaps things could have gone differently but they haven't. It would be an act of unconscionable national damage to carry on with this utterly unmandated lurch into oblivion.
Or you've got option three which is to say 'I could have got away with it if it wasn't for you pesky kids' and that of course poses the question of which pesky kids? And now they've gone for the Queen.
