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

Of course Scotland, the Remain-voting country says Boris Johnson is being unlawful

Hello

It should not be a blow to Boris Johnson, as the result was obvious as soon as Scotland declared itself. Nicola Sturgeon is always talking about leaving the UK. Let her and her ungrateful compatriots go. The first time that devolution is on the cards, they jump at it like dogs at a bone.

What does the UK lose? We have to go to British Summer Time because of their complaints. We can stop doing that. And they can only leave when they pay back the £300 million it took to build their Parliament. How many of them spend time in London instead? Raking in expenses, probably.

And North Sea oil is decreasing year on year. The rest of the UK is their biggest market.

Why hasn’t Scotland thought through their position?

The decision to bring a political issue to court is in itself unlawful. The State, the Church and Justice operate independently in our democracy and maybe it’s unwritten, but it is understood that one shall not interfere with the others. People keep talking about a constitutional crisis. If there is one, it is of Scotland’s making.

The result of Scottish interference with our democracy was a given before they started. Scottish judges presiding over their own threat to a UK Prime Minister is a conflict of interest. If anybody, it should have been presided over by, say Northern Ireland, where the people also voted to leave.

IMHO the Scots should be given their marching orders or a sincere apology to Boris Johnson. By whingeing they have taken our eye off the Brexit ball. No-one will thank them for that.

I suggest, with no legal knowledge, that the Scots voting for themselves is wrong and the following result, blindingly obvious. Boris Johnson should demand an apology. There can be no appeal when the original decision is illegal.

Give us strength and give Boris strength to ignore Scotland. Who will have a hissy fit first? All the more reason for having nothing to do with them until after Brexit.

Good luck

Repatriation of Thomas Cook’s customers will cost more than £250 m.

Hello

If the British Government coughs up £250 m, to have UK citizens repatriated, we need agreement between at least 3 parties: the hotels, the customers and our government.

Sums of £2000 have been quoted in order for customers to leave. This sounds like the hotel is trying to make up for future lost revenue, which is very unfair.

It would be reassuring if the British Embassy or Consulate in the countries concerned, could come to a financial resolution that is fair for UK customers. And what about other countries? Can they band together to get some financial resolution? A hotel that forces their customers to stay, by using security guards, must be breaking their own laws and local government should intervene to stop escalation.

A plea to people who are running out of medication. Please go to the nearest pharmacy. Drugs are global and pharmacists are much respected in other countries. Customers with medical conditions could be given priority and the hotel could allow distribution of prescription drugs. That is a priority.

If some people are receiving credits back to their credit cards, then that is good, but it is costing the UK taxpayer an awful lot of money. First, protect Thomas Cook’s pension fund, then pay off creditors and what is left should go to the repatriation costs of their customers globally. That’s the idealistic view, but Thomas Cook is not broke. Its creditors presumably outweigh its assets, which means it cannot trade. But the British government could find out where the money is. There will be some.

To the countries affected: bring back our people and your generosity will be welcomed by your future customers.

Good luck, Boris, but you might consider that £250 m is worth bringing holidaymakers back from holiday. I am sure that the other political parties will declare that they would pay it. In fact, wait for them to do it and then declare your intention.

Brexit always needed just one person to get a deal

Hello
Amber Rudd has thrown an angry and frustrated hissy fit and has put the cause of female MP’s back 10 years. For her, the end of her job has been coming since she was appointed Work & Pensions Secretary. A huge portfolio, full of lifetime payments, was cut severely by George Osborne and David Cameron.. It then became a cost-cutting exercise which caused huge distress. She just continued it and taking a step back to look at the bigger picture, she only had a 346 vote majority at the 2016 election..
Brexit always needed a tough Prime Minister, leading from the front. Boris presses the flesh and gives hope. It is the nature of the man that he sacked MP’s, as he has merely done what he warned them would happen. Theirs is a treasonable offence and could have landed them in the Tower … of London. But Boris has lost his flamboyancy as he knuckles down.
Parliamentary MP’s in a soft job were complacent until John Major took us out of the Exchange Rate Mechanism in 1992. He led by group decision yet had the casting vote and the sky did not fall in.
Big businesses seeing an end in sight will make their own deals. Man;y of them have already been made.
The new law, designed to stop Brexit, is scandalous for two reasons:
1) UK law must say somewhere that you cannot bring in a law, designed to flout parliamentary democracy, after a Referendum three years earlier;
and 2) Our 92-year-old Queen has been dragged into the furore, undeservedly and having to put it into law. It is probably very late to refuse and that may cause a constitutional crisis, or not.
How many MP’s can explain what Brexit means and the economic favours it will create for our country?
No deal is the EU’s problem. If Spain, for example, sells a million cases of tomatoes a year, where else will they sell them? At this short notice?  If they refuse to negotiate before 31 October, they will be one country and a big contributor fewer. Businesses need stability and Boris is promising that by keeping to 31 October 2019. ‘Prorogue’ is a convention for Boris to hold his nerve.

It is disgraceful that MP’s see a buoyant ship, yet try to tear it down. We have a lot going for us and sympathy in the EU, following Boris’ declaration that Mrs May had misled them about what MP’s thought about Brexit. She just cut them out of her thinking. Asked by Guy Verfhoedstat, the Lead Negotiator, when they asked about the Irish backstop, Mrs May said she hadn’t asked them. He was stunned. Three years on it is seemingly intractable. all you need is a satellite along the Irish border is a single point of entry. Truck drivers are given a barcode and press it every time they cross the border. Dairy farmers who take their milk back and forth over the border daily should be given their own barcode and then to pass freely. Technology should help here if put into the hands of ambitious Young Conservatives. They are a huge unused resource.bout the country. Is it because MP’s are secretly afraid of them? Pitt the Younger was Prime Minister at 24. Young blood required.

And finally, let’s be absolutely clear. Immigrants, first and second generation, will vote to keep us in the EU so that they can move freely. There does seem to be a lot of selfishness around.

Boris, keep your nerve. What else? Back to the EU? We were a laughing stock; now we are considered pathetic. If not prorogue, then what? The problem is when the deserters like Amber Rudd threaten our democracy by forecasting violence. Let’s hope the lemmings go home. We have had a civil democracy since the Second World War and once we are out of the EU, we can make plans.

Good luck

Great opportunity to sweep out of Europe and keep the promise of the 2016 referendum.

Hello

Why are UK politicians being negative? We can leave Europe without a deal and immediately look elsewhere for markets. We want to trade with Europe, but it’s not necessary.

We already have deals thanks to the co-ordinating hand of Liam Fox. Bring him back into Cabinet to help with Brexit. Also Jeremy Hunt has previously said that he has contacts in Brussels. Please bring him back.

And those 20 MP’s? They were warned, but evidently disbelieved that they would be sacked. Boris Johnson had no choice but to do what he had promised. Better not have thorns in your side.

Somebody has to take the tough decisions and Tory MP’s chose Boris to do it. (Margaret Thatcher thought that her Cabinet could not punch through a wet newspaper and took decisions herself.)

Boris Johnson is trying to keep the shreds of our national dignity alive. Each time fuddie-duddies try to unbalance us, he keeps going in a positive way. Compare him, the People’s Friend, with Theresa May who never shook hands unless she could help it.

Onward Mr Johnson. There are more people than you think behind you. The snag is, of course, that you have to produce a document that celebrates political deals. I still believe that we should have them all over for a holiday, especially Guy Verhoefstadt, the real Angophile negotiator.

Best of good luck

Dear Boris, invite the 27 Countries Here to the UK.

Hello
When one way doesn’t work, we could think laterally.
we could invite the leaders of the 27 countries to the UK and have a team around each of them. tell them what we want from the individual countries and do they agree. Sign temporary agreements with all of them.

Dear Boris, you may have to invite them over for a week, as we need to work on them.
Please may the Queen offer them state dinners, albeit en masse and carriage rides and visits to the Palace and Windsor Castle for accompanying spouses. Happy partners contribute to leaders’ good humour and we need all we can get.
So give and be grateful if we can achieve deals with each of them. Our diplomats will be spread very thinly as will Civil Servants and negotiators.
The UK is and has always been an independent nation and most of all, we are mavericks. This means that we are always looking for a good way to trade.
After we make trade deals, the politics will slide into place. For that to happen, we must all respect each other.
Unfortunately, British MP’s are bullying the Prime Minister and now, his leverage is low. So take another tack and invite the 27 countries to dinner. Best of luck, Boris. We do believe in you.
