Say Goodbye to HS1

Hello to Boris and applaud what a fine job he and our new Chancellor of the Exchequer are doing.

It is time to mothball HS1, a hugely controversial railway that is not yet needed between London and the northern cities.

And remember, Boris, that you promised the northern cities inward investment and a new type of railway would make their links stronger and faster.

We cannot afford it, certainly not with the £300 billion that has rightly been promised to businesses to keep them alive.

Closing schools? How will children access school meals? Those with free meals are being offered vouchers, yet there is a large number of children who are borderline, about to be offered. Can Churches step in and give out free lunch, provided by community charities?

And why can’t your children run around in your garden? If someone sneezes on the other side of the fence, it should be up to the main caregiver.

Best

Reporters Are Scaring The Public

Hello,

Coronavirus is a serious virus, but TV reporters ought to

a) stop asking banal, predictable questions, such as

i) How many people are likely to get it and

b) how many people will die?

The UK Chief of Health could barely disguise his contempt, when he responded, as, of course, he can only give best estimates at the moment. When our scientists have time to study patients and the Coronavirus, they will be in a better position help.

However, I find the jumping on the bandwagon by the Press, to be sickening. They should be encouraging and telling people what to do in case symptoms appear.

Discussion of symptoms is avoidable.

Current advice is to wash hands thoroughly, cough or sneeze into a tissue and away from other people. The NHS must be clear and in a bigger font than it is currently.

We are going to cope with it in the UK.

The lemmings are in the stockmarket. They have been clinging to the cliff edge for the past two weeks. Stockmarkets the world over, fell last week.

So to Fund Managers, look to your assets, back British companies, encourage them to trade. Now that we are out of the EU, we should have limitless opportunities – Canada, Australia, We can export our products, with a promise that transport has had a deep clean and will continue en route. And before it unloads. This gives a positive, upbeat outlook and will shove the lemmings back in their corral.

Good luck for a positive week

Oh Boris, you only needed to take a bite of the pie, not the whole pie!

Hello

So HS2 has been accepted in its entirety, yet many of the opposing Tory backbenchers live in its path.

There is no need for all of HS2. Can we forget the part from London to Birmingham? Boris has agreed to spend money on the Northern regions. Build this part and let them trade with each other.

If, as Birmingham’s Mayor said on this evening’s TV News, that it may take 20, 30 or 50 years to create, then do it inland. In around 2034, there may be a need for London to have higher tidal barriers as water rises around the world. There is talk of 1.5 metres.

Before we talk about buying so many trains from a German company, no less, there should be a proper study of how many are needed. And that German company, although highly respected, is not British. Our Derbyshire carriage-makers shouted vigorously, but no-one in government listened.

The beauty of creating a high-speed line between the northern cities of Birmingham and Leeds, for example, means that a far higher specification can be drawn up for the London-Birmingham connection. something quieter, that does not annihilate ancient woodlands, that bypasses meadows and marshes.

We have a rich diversity of insects in these environments. Let us stay that way.

In the meantime, Boris can enjoy being feted by the northern cities, to whom you promised due care and attention.

I took a break. Now we can start making our own demands on Brussels, from a position of respect.

Have a good week

Everyone knows Boris Johnson’s position and for the rest, let the games begin.

Nobody can say that Boris Johnson does not have a stance on Brexit. Of course he has; he has been saying what he believes in and what he will do for the country for the past three months. Suddenly, the Opposition Parties do not know what they think and are gathering a group of lemmings. It is because they have to make their manifesto, with nobody to rail against. If it was not so serious, it would be funny. The Liberal Democrat Jo Swinson has said that she will stop Brexit. It would perhaps be a good idea to ask the constituency to do an informal poll to find out how many of her Party members voted for Brexit. I may not agree with her, but she has courage.

The other parties are far too afraid of losing votes to put their definitive positions.

I don’t think that we have had a Prime Minister who has hit the ground running before, apart from Mrs Thatcher. Boris Johnson has listened to people on the front line of care. He just needs to surround himself with people who can make improvements happen.

So, two appalling events that have been allowed to happen:

  1. A young career broadcaster who said something silly that was brought out at the time. But, however it objectifies women, it is true. What he really said was that women did not understand men and shouldn’t get themselves into a situation they cannot manage. He’s only 34 and has wanted to be an MP for a very long time. It would be a good man who could reinstate him; it might just not be Boris Johnson. Is that the pot calling the kettle black?
  2. Mr Jacob Rees-Mogg lounged on a seat in the Houses of Parliament before or after hours. It shows just how exhausted he was. No-one minded, no-one sacked him; it was nonsensical. But it does show the amount of work the ferrets are creating. It was so sweet to see him with his eldest son, so like him, protecting him from a barrage of cameras.

So Parliament has to sit on a Saturday. Their Prime Minister needs a break. A few days maybe, where no-one can find him.

Regards for a busy week.

Guy Verhoefstadt tips the seesaw

Hello

Guy Verhoefstadt, the fake Anglophile, who evidently flat-irons his hair … on an ironing board, to make it lank.

Don’t you mock our Prime Minister; we don’t like it. Of course, Mrs May was mocked and replied in the politest fashion. Doubtless, they misunderstand lofty comments. The best are when the tormentor is unsure whether they have been insulted or not. Boris Johnson is British to his core, but as impassioned as Mrs May was not. I wonder what he will come up with, Mr Verhoefstadt?

Of course Boris said ‘do or die’. If you want a big achievement, you have to make expansive comments, give yourself huge goals. But these leading EU negotiators make nothing. They create nothing except huge expense accounts when flitting between Strasbourg and Brussels, every 3 weeks. That is one huge bill we no longer agree to foot. They also need us to stay, so desperately. It took 27 countries to sign ‘yes’ to the initial Treaty. How long did it take this time? On a shower of hands? Their refusal to let us leave is contemptible.

And, yet, we must protect …

Our fishing limits around England and pertinently around the coasts of Scotland;

Our agriculture, manufacturing, medical supplies,

The 1001 small companies in the FSB, CBI etc.

We know, don’t we, that such a big contributor to EU frippery, cannot be allowed to leave. So give us continual 3-monthly extensions, until something snaps. We don’t like threats of this kind. It is a fact that we pay more than we receive in grants etc. And who is going to pay for French agriculture? They hate needing us to pay into EU coffers.

Our lives are currently in suspended Brexit-animation. Please, Boris, get us out of here. Without a General Election. This country needs you and the last word goes to M. Barnier . He called it a ‘flexextension’, proof that every language can be tortured in the name of good senses. It means that we don’t have to wait until January 2020. We can go by Christmas. Wouldn’t that be a lovely present?

Work colleagues of all parties are refusing to take part in a General Election. Forget it, Boris, just get us out, please.

A Brexit Map to save the UK

A few nuggets from Boris Johnson’s talks tonight. Unfortunately, all of those idiots from the media have fallen into his trap. He said that he would obey the law from the UK Supreme Court (sorry got that wrong in a previous post). He promised to abide by it, although he didn’t agree with it and questioned how the Justice could have anything to do with political matters.

All hell broke loose, with the people who condemned his words. Clearly wrongfooted, the media went into undignified and ruffled huffs, when they realised that he was still intent on leaving on 31 October,

The solution –

A mini Health/NHS deal where people continue to have their NHS prescription drugs;

Supersede the Northern Ireland backstop, as it would mean we continue in the Customs Union, still to be in single market EU and Justice from Europe, which would upset the UK Supreme Court no end.

Ireland should have the chance to decide what they want and submit it to the Prime Minister.. What has Mrs Arlene done with the £1 billion we gave her. Are they just sitting on the interest?

And the real reason Jeremy Corbine doesn’t want a General Election? His political masters would not have the same ability to gain access to him. He is more useful as Leader of the Party.

It doesn’t have to be troubled times. Just get in some tinned stocks, before they go up. We couuld all go to Sainsbury’s to give them a little boost, short-term anyway.

Good luck

Boris to resign? Are we out of our collective minds?!

Hello

Boris is the only one who has the mental power to bring about Brexit. Someone, somewhere is beavering away, trying to create a Brexit, to be submitted to the EU in ‘x’ days. However long, we need him to analyse it and produce a coherent document.

We had 3 years since the 2016 Referendum to deliver it. Mrs May just kept asking what the EU wanted. She had a discussion with our Guy (Verhoefstadt) about the Northern Ireland and admitted that she hadn’t thought to ask her to be at the meeting. Bizarre, but it followed that the UK presented a Remain document to Parliament.Naturally, it was shredded and politicians of every hue decided to air their partisan views on TV. Who told them it was a good idea? The EU was astounded, not least by childish behaviour being exhibited by our MP’s. The UK public either derided them or was embarrassed.

Ignore this conflict of interest where Scotland’s Justice Department thought it could vote for itself and no-one would notice.

Sending you strength, Boris, but where are the lawyers? This is our field, but they also know that politics should be conducted quietly, with no shouted arguments across the Commons.

Unfortunately, with all of those egos, one way to go was to suspend Parliament. It took the wind out of their sails. Now they’re coming back on Wednesday.

For Boris, gather your friends around you, political and otherwise. There will be a tumult of objection on Wednesday. Hang on, the people want you to stay. The thought of a Dictator in power (Jeremy Corbine), is very worrying. But the UK public is cleverer than JC. Five hours less a week to work, but over ten years! And it has failed as a system in France. Salaries went down as a result of working less, business owners were pessimistic. It is too gloomy to think about.

Good luck

LucyLou
