B+ For Boris On Burkha s

Hello

The British Government has fallen into a trap of its own devising.

Let us take this burkha-wearing in Britain to British women who have to comply with dress codes when we go abroad, such as shawls to cover the arms and long skirts and scarves to cover our hair in middle-eastern countries.

When we come back to our own country, Britain, we breathe a sigh of relief and go back to our freedom of dressing.

These burkha-wearing women have fled war in their own country and come here. For some reason, the British government has, for many years, been very weak and allowed female incomers to wear burkhas.

“Let them be covered up in public. “

It is in direct opposition to our dress code, which, we as women have fought for, ever since Emily Pankhurst won us the vote.

As I have been reminded again today, the letter-box look coined by Boris Johnson is just that, a slit of face visible.  And the all-over look that frightens adults and children is not the face of western style.

The consequence of this weakness is that all sorts of people have declared that ‘x’ is a nod towards their religion, culture, etc., until eventually, we have lost our national identity. Consecutive governments of whatever hue have begged incomers to accept houses and welfare benefits, thus pushing embedded British deserving claimants down the state accommodation lists.

And British men, in general, are bemused by these women, in whom they would have no interest anyway. One friend said it was an insult to his character, to suggest the women should be covered up, as if he would ever demonstrate an interest.

The French, who have a highly-developed sense of national identity, have rejected the burkha as part of it. And maybe, that’s the crux of it. We have so little sense of identity that we take in these women, who bite the hand that feeds them. Then they demand to wear these ugly garments.

Emily Pankhurst anyone? She would be rolling in her grave if she knew, for all the fight that she put in, so that British women could vote and here is the burkha brigade, taking us a huge step backwards in our rights and demanding the right to wear it. They can have no demands; they can have no rights in our country.

Boris Johnson is demonstrating his right to free speech in this democracy. The hardest thing that anyone can accept, is that other people’s views count and if more people vote against you than for you, you lose.

This burkha action is more to do with spite and racial hatred of the host country and any British religious order would do well to keep out of this argument.  Scottish Conservative Leader Ruth Davidson’s comment, actually comparing holy objects in Christianity to Islam, stirs extremism rather than calms. She manages to insult everyone.

Also, sorry to be cynical, but the women writing to Brandon Lewis, Conservative Party Chairman have no family names. Is that because they are one big family? If you think about it, no family name is another breach of our national identity.

Let us join France, Denmark and Belgium in their determination to ban the burkha in public and to keep their national identity intact.

What is our national identity as far as you are concerned?

Have a good week,

LucyLou

Would Brian Chesky, founder of AirBnB please talk to the British government today!

Hello

AirBnB started up as an entity where two sides of an argument can sit down in a room and discuss.

This should have happened 18 months ago, but better late than never.

Today, there is some spurious online talk that Remainers are in secret talks to save Britain.

Plainly, something must be done about the BREXIT talks, yet it should be help to those looking at  BREXIT. To have a ‘no deal situation’ is fatuous. We are so much more intelligent than that. Has Mrs May given up?

A referendum is the easy way out, but the British public is less informed than it was before the last one. Don’t think that by repeating the word ‘Brexit’ a thousand times, that we will capitulate. We want an elegant way out, not the current one of being the fool of Europe,

Why not ask Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel, or all Europe, how they would leave Europe. Of course, they will have their own slant, yet it may be useful.

Of course, the best idea is to talk to Airbnb. Mrs May has just to command the date with no excuses. We are up to our necks in water, (hypothetically speaking). Only the brain is left. Come on Mrs May; we know there are thousands of strands. Each Department should settle its own, then show them to you for discussion.

Boris Johnson should not apologise – freedom of speech

Hello

Boris has described the women wearing burkhas as looking like letterboxes. To go further, it can be frightening, especially to children. The woman, predictably, has complained, but we have freedom of speech here. And the difficult thing to accept is that firstly, we are a democracy and secondly because of that we vote.  To lose is the hardest thing to get over, yet this is how we have kept the peace for 70 years.

To some British men, the burkha is apparently insulting, as if they would attack any of these women.

These women and their husbands come to our shores, demanding asylum with its financial benefits. Then they turn around and kick us in the teeth, by wearing these headclothes.

British and European women worked very hard to get the vote, but would these women have us all wear them?  It is absurd. If you insist on wearing something that threatens our sense of identity, you should emigrate.

The French, of course, have banned the burkha. It is because the French have proper spunk and their sense of identity on the world stage is very strong. The burkha threatens that. Boris Johnson has spunk; let him be.

Google Translates To Planet Devastation

So Google Translate says that Jesus Christ is coming. Let us hope that the politician with the same initials does not get above himself. It may be too late, as increasing numbers of MP’s are complaining to their constituencies about bullies and intimidation sent in after speeches disliked by the leadership. Dangerous times indeed.

It appears that JC can also be accused of being weak and ineffectual against anti-semitism lobbies. His heart is not in protection of the innocent. Who is he listening to? Does his Party know? What will they do about it?

We cannot wait until we are bounced into a General Election as Brexiteers have, up to now, been terribly incompetent negotiators.

Negotiation means those who talk to each other to thrash out a plan. Chequers appears to have been a plan, leaked to a newspaper and possibly Angela Merkel before Theresa May’s own Cabinet saw it.

Hope about consistent, effective negotiation has been stirred by Dominic Raab; a breath of fresh air. Let the Civil Servants remain to waft him through the corridors of power without sticking to any one lobby or school of thought. He could rescue us, calling M> Barnier “only a tough negotiator’.

Theresa May’s statesmanship will come by letting Mr Raab continue the Brexit negotiations.

To digress, we had rain, yippee! Just for 20 minutes. I hope the trees slurped thirstily.

Scientists are proclaiming that climate change has arrived, after years of warnings if we ignored emissions’ levels. A huge iceberg broke off the Larsen Ice Shelf in Antartica. The jet stream that keeps us in lush countryside suddenly paused for two months and meant we had that period of hot, dry air. It did not move towards us as expected. The result is that extremely hot weather has stayed over the UK. Why is it over Europe?.

Nature has stolen the thunder of D DTrump trumpeting his way out of the Paris Accord. The US can take responsibility for devastating the planet. See him slide out of that one.

Ban a few words and stay in power

Hello

If the Deputy Conservative Whip mentioned the word ‘resignation’, he was misled. It should be banned from the vocabulary as it tends to reverberate in the minds of troublemakers.

The other phrase is ‘General Election’. Nobody wants one, especially the voters.

Is it possible that the thought of Labour’s far-left views finding themselves at No. 10, may have already occurred to train operators? Tony Blair cancelled shareholders’ money when he nationalised the trains.

We are standing on an abyss, our toes curled over the edge.  Talk of no Brexit is daft and not what the majority of people voted for. Please put pride aside and invite in the CBI who can explain how business decisions are taken, i.e., talking to the experts involved and Consultancies like Deloitte and KPMG.  Money spent on them now will reap millions later and keep Mrs May where she is.

Sir Cliff Richard wins claim for financial and emotional harm by the BBC (of all people)

Hello

There is a fairly straight line from the person who concocted the idea of entering Sir Cliff Richard’s own home without sufficient cause.  The problem seems to have been that they did not have any evidence. Although there is a result, have the people in decision-making been brought to book?

One person in the policeforce had the idea to go into his home. Another, or the same, decided to leak it to the Press and make sure they were there at the early-morning raid. They were looking for evidence to back up whatever spurious claim they had.

What if the cameras recording the break-in saved Sir Cliff from a worse fate?  What if someone was going to plant false evidence? From the other decisions made up to the break-in, they were already on shaky moral ground.

Which Judge granted the warrant? These are the people who should be investigated.

His other lucky chance was that he was not at home, although watching someone going into your home must make you feel ill.

Sir Cliff has won his claim for lost earnings and emotional consequences, yet the BBC was dodging the bullets on its own TV channel. Unfortunately for the CEO, the buck eventually stops with him.

All of this said, 90% of our policeforce are dedicated to the public’s welfare. Britain’s finest, most of them.

Have a good week

Casting Mrs May Adrift Misses The Point

Hello

The British are mavericks and as such, never submit easily. Leaving the EU seems to be as difficult as joining it. Very reluctantly and with much kicking and screaming did we sign up to the European Courts having a say in our laws.

I think we forget that Britain leaving the EU will be a big wrench for EU citizens. So we should be more confident in putting forward our plans. Unfortunately, this time, the Cabinet’s discussions at Chequers last Friday 13 July 2018 have fallen by the wayside. as the enormity of no Customs Union hit MP’s in Parliament. On reason is that the other 27 countries in the EU could get jealous of Britain having a special deal. Frictionless trade does not need emotions running high.

Could you clear up something for me? Does having a Customs Union mean that we have frictionless trade or are these two separate discussions?

There can only be one leader, yet there could be cross-party discussion. Let us think for a moment about the radical Jeremy Corbyn and if he got into power, after Tory backbenches lost their collective nerve. He would have to take responsibility for Brexit. He may discuss it ad infinitum with his MP’s, but he is on record in two debates of saying something completely different. Of course, a man of such strict left-wing principles would be expected to denounce ministerial cars and insist they all had Minis.

If Mr Barnier is pleased, we are doomed

What is best for the country?

Mrs May is doing a good job. Why? Because it is easier to criticize than it is to create. So negotiators are not born, they are developed and that takes practice.

Here’s a curveball. Let us support Mrs May over a new plan that was created at Chequers. MP’s we have never heard of are resigning in pairs. Let them go. The pickle-minded are entrepreneurs who work for themselves.

Unfortunately, this is Parliament’s country and ours and we must negotiate Brexit sensibly. Why are Conservative MP’s making such a fuss? Plans are always amended. Once a billion-pound company Admiral Computing Ltd., made its Project Managers submit their best shot and then it would be criticized and redone. That meant it grew exponentially and was always a step ahead of competitors.

There is no need for Mrs May to be downcast. We are at the beginning of the creation of a Brexit. And it would be politic to support her.

Have a good week

LucyLou

PS As for M. Claude Juncker, he is not drunk (The Sun?).  He most likely has Meniers Disease where your horizon waves and makes it impossible to walk in a straight line. Operations are for other people.
