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.

Sending up rockets may save the planet in September

Hello

So North Korea wants to test its missiles. May I suggest that they work with every other country that has nuclear warheads to head off an asteroid heading for Earth this September. It is the size of a playing field. I remember someone making that exact comment when describing a crater 1.5 km in diameter that struck America. It may have been the one that killed off the dinosaurs as dust and rocks filled the air.

We have to do something. We cannot rely on our dense air, it is too big and travelling too fast.

Should it be split into smaller pieces or will that create similar catastrophic events in several craters?
My first thought is a certain number of rockets fired to meet a certain point on the asteroid to deflect it. Mathematicians and scientists can work it all out. We could co -ordinate as we are unafraid of someone taking our technology as we are willing to share in the name of saving our planet.

Whatever, all countries need to meet and soon if we are to deflect it.

The Dread of the next Prime Minister

Hello
Boris Johnson is already suggesting who will be in his Cabinet. This takes his promotion for granted and Conservative members like to vote as individuals.
Ian Duncan Smith has presided over the appalling cut in benefits that is Universal Credit. Oh and you have to wait six weeks to receive any money. Your benefits will probably already have been withdrawn and it has resulted in misery. People have been evicted as they can’t pay their rent. Mental health problems will have soared. Where is the credit in that ? And I had no idea why Priti Patel was sacked from the government in 2017. Giving money to the Israeli Army? Two years is not enough time to absolve her actions.

I don’t think that Jeremy Hunt has talked about MP’s in his Cabinet. He has acted in a brilliant way about the problems with our ships being taken in the Strait of Hormusz. But he has probably been overruled by the Navy. We did after all take a British-flagged ship earlier in the week on the assumption that it was headed from Gibraltar to Syria. Where is the proof? It should not be a secret as these men are contesting a battle to be Prime Minister. WMD or lack thereof taxed; no more of that.
And poor Phillip Hammond, who has been so much in the News, threatens to leave, amongst others if Boris becomes Prime Minister.
In my opinion, Boris would be unable to cope with lots of things going wrong at the same time. It is said that you can’t fight on more than one major life’s upsets at the same time. Boris must be upset after his relationship split. He was betrayed by left-wing neighbours? No-one else in the appartment block heard anything. MP’s of all hues should look at their neighbours.
Jeremy Hunt has a calm level-headed approach to Prime Minister. Maybe it is all too late.

Best wishes to the members of the Conservative Party who have voted or who are still to vote.

And lastly, has Theresa May started the process of giving NHS, teachers and police the pay rise they so richly deserve? If it is not done now, a future government will take credit for it.

Two final contenders

Hello
I like Boris Johnson, his flowery language that makes us proud to be English and a powerful charisma among his fellow MP’s.

The thing is, MP’s are voting for the person rather than what is best for our country. Boris can be like a knife through butter in his dealings with his European counterparts, but what is his plan?

And then there is Jeremy Hunt, who can handle impertinent, repetitive television presenters and who has a plan.
He must be the choice of big businesses, as he understands how they think and he knows how they have to think six months ahead . These Conservative MP’s are thinking day-by-day and that is hardly a surprise. We are all sick of Brexit.
So, are MP’s seeking someone who can talk to anyone, or are they seeking someone who can help the UK’s economy?
If Mr Hunt comes second, maybe Boris can make him a second-in-command. and vice versa.

A demain

Save Our Souls

Hello

I felt a great weariness lift from my shoulders when Mrs May resigned. At last we have a chance to deliver Brexit. Now someone is regrettably flattering Uncle Tom Cobley and all to stand as Prime Minister {10 so far}. It is obvious that this will split the vote and stop the best person from winning. That is the first attack on democracy.

Stop thinking your voters are stupid. And if he who has experience of three government departments, (Michael Gove), let him list his successes. That goes for the rest of them too. Is there a whisper of Nick Clegg coming back; I thought he was working for Facebook?

In the European elections, Conservative and Labour did badly, barely worth mentioning as everyone knew that that would happen. The Brexit Party took 30% of the vote and its leader Mr Farage, is now demanding a seat at the negotiating table. Fair enough. He also promised Brexit MEP’s with experience of business. Music to my ears; they live in the real world.

Why has Mrs May been allowed to go to Brussels as our Prime Minister?  I do not think she was just saying goodbye. What has she saying to C-J Juncker and mob?  It was so predictable that any country’s leader was going to stick a pin in us, whilst saying they will not accept a reworking of our Brexit Withdrawal Agreement. Great, neither do we, nor does our Houses of Parliament. The EU has not been listening and has walked straight into an accidental trap.   Let’s leave Europe to stew.

We can leave Europe on WTO terms if that is suits us. WTO has been at our side since Brexit was first mooted. Thank you. We are still friends with the Commonwealth countries and we will no longer have to accept quotas or add to food mountains.

Mrs May had to go, but not until 7 June, Why is she still dictating terms?. Back from Brussels, she tarnishes her lamp with as many laws onto the Statute Book as possible. Apparently they went on the back burner for 3 years whilst she did nothing for 2 years then gave us away in the third.

 With any luck we shall get an 11th hour tweet from Donald Trump asking who is Prime Minister? Oh dear, he will probably decide, thinking he is being helpful.

 We used to send especially strengthened high-quality steel to North America for them to create products, like aircraft wings. However, steel tariffs are decimating our business. Where will they get the good steel from?

And finally, this evening, we see evidence of people who have been in power so long that they have forgotten who they serve: the country and our democracy. To bring a ridiculous Summons to a long-serving, passionate and committed MP, is its second airing at least. This time they have involved Westminster Court no less.  It is incredible that they do not understand what they are doing. It is a transparent attack on our democracy from persons unknown. It is also true that democracies are being tested globally.

Boris Johnson is just the hapless head on which the legal mind has fallen. It is natural for MP’s to champion causes and our NHS is a valid one. £x pounds sterling; who cares? The point is we must save our NHS from the red tape of Brussels and from Frenchwomen filling our Maternity wards, as they do not dare give birth in a French hospital. Besides it’s almost free. Not for much longer!

If you question a policy written on a bus, that was created by Joe Bloggs, you cannot then blame one of our more popular politicians from running with it. Yes, it formed one of the tenets of the 2016 Referendum, because most politicians could not make themselves understood.

You cannot say after the fact that the question should not have been made. It is done. You don’t need a legal mind for that.

The 2016 Referendum had two bases for the general public: immigration and NHS payments to Brussels. If you even question one, the Referendum’s result is suddenly on shaky ground. What worries me is that these people seem to be shaking democracy deliberately. Usually it happens when people in power have been flattered, be they lawyers or politicians. It is not just here in the UK, but globally, democracies are being tested. Why?

 And ultimately, you should not have gone after Boris Johnston, on the cusp of an Election to be Prime Minister, for he is a man heralded as the People’s choice among activists and in the constituencies.

For all politicians, you have an opportunity to be the greatest MP that you can be. We need you to step up and work out Brexit for us.

Thank you

LucyLou
