Brexit – Norway-style or Canada WTO Access

Hello

 

We have at least two solid offers offering honourable ways for Britain to leave the EU. There is every reason for MP’s to remain calm and reject the nonsense that is Theresa May.

Claude Juncker famously said on UK TV that he was fed up with Mrs May asking what the EU wanted and to ask the EU what the UK wanted.

Mrs May has spoken to constituents over their MP’s heads. She has spoken to Labour and she that failed, she appealed to the Unions. She made ethereal promises to all.

Yet there has been a cross-party group meeting for months and rightly so. Mrs May has forgotten one thing: the average MP is intelligent and wants to give a well thought out opinion.

We rely on them.

Is Plan B No Vote Brexit?

Hello

Since the ridiculous worst-case scenarios for Brexit set out by the supposedly apolitical Mark Carnet, Chairman of the Bank of England to Theresa May’s stuck-in-the-mud stance, Conservative activists have been begged over the heads oof their MP’s to follow her Brexit deal. This splits activists and their constituency party and will make her MPs’ jobs harder. The plan to work on MP’sbis a shambles and has broken trust within the Conservative Party. Endless shabby promises of promotion if they vote for this dreadfull list of nonsensical words shows a monumental ego at work that does not brook failure. And for a second time, she expects a positive reaction after going behind MP’s backs

And remember the Welsh farmers seen at Market with separate images of Mrs May- did they meet? It may turn out that the EU would like a discussion about subsidies, as they profit too.

I have asked for cross-party discussions before. Now one such movement is being built against her.It is so unnecessary.

Take a rural MP with an interest in agriculture and ask for a Representatives from the National Farmers’Union and talk with counterparts from the EU. Talk in the UK of course.

Is it possible that we took the cheap option? MrsMay has not worked for 2 years on Brexit as claimed.  As late as September 2017 there was a panicked recruitment drive as the government realised they had too few negotiators.

Today there were two demonstrations for and against Brexit. Not much media coverage.

We can make a Brexit deal for the UK but the people want more involvement. Gone are the loners. We are team members.. Maybe MPs can set us an example.

I hope we find clarity; we have a lot to offer.

EU fall over themselves to say that the current deal is the only one

Hello

It is a nightmarish scenario. The EU know they have not conceded much, if anything and 27 countries who threatened not to sign last week, are now racing to sign. Bizarre. Weird. and somewhere: dishonest.

There may be content in the deal, but the words are nonsense and strung in a line. How dare Mrs May take our intelligence and throw it down the throats of an eager EU?

Eighty Conservative MP’s have publicly declared their opposition. Well done; it’s good to see MP’s standing up for their constituents. They have also been made to look fools by the government and more so, perhaps, as they trusted Mrs May to bring in a good deal. Let the Campaign for Plain English see it and there will be uproar.

For next week, let’s plan a new Brexit and refuse the scandal of the EU keeping concessions.  Messrs. Barnier and CJ Juncker are celebrating tonight; let’s make them cry. And frankly, if we were another smaller country, how much more would they be bullied. 
Mrs May is living in a bubble of fantasy.  

I hope that there is no way this scandalous note of history can be accepted by politicians.  Do the people want a vote again? It sounds like the buck is being passed.  

Goodnight

I smell a rat (post EU/Mrs May Brexit signature)

Hello

Ratified by the EU in undignified haste

Two mistakes by those signing up to this Brexit nonsensical version:

  1. Politicians believe that they are more intelligent and savvy than their voters;
  2. The most mentally-challenged smell a rat when they see one.

Have we ever seen a treaty/agreement/peace terms ratified this fast? Of course not; it is Brexit baloney. Mrs May must give up elegantly and drift into history. We, in the meanwhile, need someone who inspires confusion and fear in Brussels.

Two possibilities, preferably a combination:

A politician like Barack Obama. On first entering Presidential office, he asked Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton to the White House. They gave him useful advice and they gave him stability. Further high-ranking (therefore experienced) politicians also joined him.

Boris Johnson. But not too off the wall; we need stability. Yet he will inspire us in future, if we are to have one.

If you want Brexit for the people, it should be negotiated first. Only then should Brexit become a logistical exercise.  Mrs May has succeeded in causing mental episodes in every negotiator and aide. to do your best and then too find you have been ignored from the beginning is to cause a misalignment in the brain.

I smell a rat; do you?

It is a cheek and an insult to think that no-one would notice.

To be railroaded, is not fun, so laugh at it and win

I don’t believe it. We have battled over Gibraltar for a hundred years and Mrs May caved to Spain last night, immediately, conceded.  She is grasping at straws and in doing so, has probably upset a whole island, which thought itself comfortable under British protection.

Wait now for the torrent of other countries wanting to take a bite out of us.

Mrs May is now inciting the public to back her and her policies, which look a near perfect statement of remaining in the EU, but with £40 bn, which has mysteriously become a downpayment instead of a divorce settlement. How the EU laughing at us.

I did stick out for a Customs Union, but did not make clear that we would have our own rules and certainly not kowtow to the EU. And fairly sure that we have conceded everything the EU wanted, now what do we do?

Tell the EU that:

  1. Customs Union without bowing to EU rules. Before the EU, our British Standards were the envy of the world. We can go back to that, if we have a little spunk;
  2. Every government department must produce its rules for Brexit. Fishermen know what they want. We should be giving praise to them, not saying that, by the way, the French have asked to fish in our coastal waters. In their dreams, but I take a reasonable guess that that is another concession given.

The trouble with suggesting solutions is that it shows how much we have been conned into this Brexit policy.

Firstly, give the Cabinet three hours to read a 7-page outline and 585-page Divorce Settlement. They were not allowed to take any papers home.

Secondly, Mrs May has not heeded her advisers, government Ministers and negotiators, employed from the private sector. They have probably worked themselves half to death for the country and what a disappointment it must be to realize that she never wanted your help. You were a smokescreen, for which  someone should stand up and apologize.

Should there have been a little understanding earlier?  I am a frayed knot, that was never Mrs May’s plan. Get her trusted aide and not the Brexit Secretary of the day, Dominic Raab, to deliver a paper. Would that it was a White Paper as we would then have more time to refuse. Mr Raab has a kind future ahead. He was like a breath of fresh air which grew stale on further acquaintance with the nonsense that is the Brexit paper.

The public has been given the dull news that there is a 7-page outline of Brexit, after 2 years! Then the DUP, rightly, put Northern Ireland first and rejected the nonsense.

We must all, in our own ways, stamp on the nonsense of Brexit. The people are sick of Brexit, whether understanding it or not. Give them no time and force them to accept.Unsurprisingly, the EU has leapt into action to ratify her version of Brexit before we change our minds. There is a special summit in the EU today, Sunday 25 November.

Unrest is continuing, now into Europe. The French are unhappy. M. Macron focussed on France’s position in the EU and forgot the people who put him there.

We don’t want this Brexit nonsense and we do want to be independent. I am fed up with Mrs May threatening Ministers, MP’s and the public that we cannot reject her version as the alternative is a ‘no Brexit’. Deal.  This is also a nonsense. We are very quick at adapting and can carry out checks to lorries coming from France, maybe a software addition to the present system.Tweaking  technology is the answer to most of our woes.

Losing Gibraltar was the last straw. Threatening everyone is done from a position of fear, but she put herself in that position and cannot blame us.

Personally, I would get every Department to thrash out what they want and present it within a week, not to Mrs May, but to an interim Prime Minister. If you are chosen, do not lose your head. Think, reflect, take action as all the best gurus tell us and listen to your Aides and Negotiators. Otherwise, we are up the creek without a paddle.

Is it too late?

Why isn’t Parliament sitting this Sunday as we face a constitutional crisis?

It is 26 years since we faced one (1992 crash out of the Exchange Rate Mechanism). Somehow we survived that.

Ask the people. With any luck it will proceed like phrases most likely to be heard in Waitrose:

“Portia, pick me a papaya.”

“Daddy, does Lego have a silent ‘t’ like Merlot?” (www.mirror.co.uk)

How about a 24-hour Joke-a-thon at the expense of the EU. It would cheer us all upl

M. Barnier, CJJuncker and the Pied Piper of Hamelin

The Pied Piper of Hamelin

The Piper is an English fable where a Piper plays a haunting melody which  enchants all of the children in the town and they follow him, never  to be seen again. Except one; a child who cannot keep up and is therefore saved.

Roll forward to the present, where MP’s are grown-ups, but they have led the British public down the garden path and sold the DUP(es) down the river.

The 10% of MP’s buried in research have woken to a bonfire too late. Dominic Raab, who seemed to be a breath of fresh air and then realised he was a fall-guy. Hopefully, he refused to deliver the certificate called Brexit, honest to the end, he resigned. Ms McVey fled office after someone said of Universal Credit, slated by the UN no less, that we ‘test and learn’. Not with people’s lives you don’t.  DWP was forced to reduce the waiting time for issue of Universal Credit, to four weeks from six. Hoorah, something honest people have been trying to reduce for years. But there should be no delay.  There’s talk about children’s mental health. Piffle! You don’t care.

The bottom line in every Parliament and law-making is that MP’s want to keep their lifestyles. This is a national disgrace.  So six months before an election, they must have their salaries cut to £10k a year, so that they can assimilate with the poor. It will play havoc with their mental health, but that’s tough right? ask Labour? No, the leader ants unequivocal power.

All standing MP’s, desperate to continue their way of life, must wear the same colour footwear as Mrs May, to show allegiance. Parliament is being treated as a well of stupid contingent who will agree.  But why? She has already drawn the trump card of if you don’t agree with this, there will be no deal. It really is like that email saying ’I love you’ that was opened by half of Parliament and turned out to be a virus. These people think too much of themselves and not about how to survive Brexit.

You have to stop Brexit. Sorry, we have made a mess, especially of the Political Declaration.  Sack Mrs May; she has treated us all as beneath her contempt.  put in an interim Prime Minister, preferably an honest man, which means none of those with limousines. Oh, please insist they must all visit their constituencies, so that the people may speak. My MP is a dopey driveller, to whom I would like to give a piece of my mind, for not standing up to her and for leaving constituents in the lurch.

It is a nonsensical Brexit deal, in that words are strung together, but in such a way that the Campaign for Plain English will have a field day.

When the Cabinet got the 585-page document, they were given 3 hours to read it. what a joke; it’s only for speed-readers, usually lawyers.

Those who want her out were confident of their 48 letters last week. It is not you guys, it is because r MP’s still consider their seats safe. What a joke. The Englishman in the street understands less than he did when Brexit was first named. When they don’t understand, they get angry,  their mental health falters.  Or they laugh and there’s plenty of that when two ‘senior’ Conservative MP’s (friends with Generals or Admirals or RAF) suggested we have our own New Big Army in Britain. Laughable but serious, as it came a day after ‘Jere my Corb Ine’ suggested the same thing.

In Ireland they may make a thousand jokes about Brexit.  It is laughable and obvious that N. Ireland and S. Ireland need to tell the UK to take a running jump off a short pier; it’s their land, isn’t it?

Why do you misunderstand the power of feeling against this deal amongst the British people? Few nations ever consider revolution until it happens to them.

Still MP’s are not sufficiently scared of using their seats. A Lithuanian carpenter  was on TV last night. Over 4 years, he had worked himself up to Manager. Oh and he spoke five languages.  He could work anywhere! Are there Englishmen emulating him? We routinely insult our workers, who routinely work harder and longer hours than the EU. TO CEO’s – at Christmas, you could thank your employees, write up bonuses on your website.

Unfortunately when those in power rely on fear, of no deal, is worse than what has vomited into awareness, no longer a democracy. When people rely on fear, people like HITLER appear. We said in all the words of the WW1 and WW2 programmes, that it will never happen again. We are on the cusp of dictatorship. Any MP who thinks this is a joke, please don’t.

 

Who can guide us out of this muddle?  It has to be an interim Prime Minister and crucially, someone who is feared by the EU. Of course, it is Boris Johnson, whose superior language will fox translators and introduce a degree of levity that combines

people much better than pre-planned, controlled question and answer sessions. The EU see Brexit as a power battle, which they thought was theirs for the taking. The British had conceded all the way down the line. But the PM stopped, made up her paper and did not listen to anyone. This is exactly what she did in the stupid 2016 Election. And she hasn’t learnt, nor has she learned humility from the 2016 results. All Brexit has succeeded in doing is making us and our children poorer.

“It will all be over by Christmas.” A second world war quote.

Having another leader is easier done than said.

 

  • A Natalie Loiseau – Mme, il est evident que vous avez peur de bien faire arranger les normes. Veuillez d’etre assure que les Anglais creent toujours les normes politiques et vous les suivez.

Who can unravel the muddle that binds us to a course into self-destruction.? It seemed that every week in spite of Dominic Raab, thebreath of fresh air, who found himself dismissed when he objected , rightly, to concessions, she did not listen. This phrase occurred repeatedly before the last General Election, when the Tories sought high office. Ha! You have to earn that. To MP’s: where in your conscience is there a success in this Bill?

Why have the former Commonwealth countries been snubbed? We will need them as we continue. How can we continue with a leader who doesn’t succeed. Remember what happened at the last Election, which was meant to lead us, the country to higher successes? Mrs May lost the plot. Did she fail to see why she had failed when it was as plain as ithe nose in your face/ in that instance, she kept a lectern and several metres of space between herself and the Public with sticky hands.

We are going the same way. Only this time, we will self-destruct or we will tell the EU to take a running jump off a short pier.; their trade is less important. It is alright to put these ideas to the EU. They will decline to their own castasttophe.
