G. Williamson stamped all over hallowed ground last week and insulted one of our greatest trading partners. Sack him! He was highly irresponsible by suggesting our new aircraft-carrier was ready and would defend islands off China’s coast, which have nothing to do with us. He has obviously forgotten how small we are compared with China and geographically, there are large land masses between us and China.
Sack him. Mrs May must raise her eyes from Brexit and Tory defections. They mean nothing compared to losing our trade relationship with China.
Fools rush in where angels fear to tread, Mr Williamson. Be sacked or resign quickly, so that we can restore our relationship with a major supplier.
How many toys etc., do you have that have the stamp ‘Made in China’? Hundreds including Apple and toys galore at Christmas.
Sack him so that we can smoothe over his idiocy.
I just read a tirade of the so-called errors that Chris Grayling has made during his time as Transport Secretary. But I see an honourable man, keen to negotiate with employers and to stand up for employees. If you look at the tirade, you glimpse jealousy, certainly from the Labour Party.
Now someone is blaming him for a lack of vision. What? He had the strategic vision, rarely seen in politicians of any hue, to give a contract to a company, Seabourne Ferries, when they did not have a ship. Well, a ship is a buying decision by a group of people who believe that they can provide a service. And the terms and conditions; where do you think any entrepreneur finds their terms and conditions? From a successful start-up, of course. all companies were once start-ups and Chris Grayling gave this one a chance. It is not his fault that another company has backed out. Stop vilifying him; he should be given a medal! With his integrity and honour; he would be a great Prime Minister.
There was one mistake, because everyone else who should have helped make the decision, hung him out to dry. It was up to him to decide about the timetables, which shows the train companies still do not understand about providing a service before they look at their profits. The rescheduling was a nightmare, but the fault is with the train companies, Is there no overseeing Board for train companies? One that would look after the customers’ best interests? Easy to call it a quango, yet they do much good behind the scenes, with one notable exception: OR. That’s for another day.
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.
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.
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.
Ratified by the EU in undignified haste
Two mistakes by those signing up to this Brexit nonsensical
- Politicians believe that they are more intelligent and savvy than their voters;
- 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.
