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

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.

Divert Mr Trump Away from UK

Hello

It may be a thought to divert Mr Trump’s plane away from Heathrow and send him to Scotland. However, that would be to miss seeing the giant caricature balloon of himself.

Also, if he utters the word ‘football’, a word sacred to the English,, even if we eventually lost, he will whip up distaste from a whole nation.  When we react to a national event, we are just as passionate as Mr. Trump.

So he laid into Angela Merkel’s  German government today. She looked like she was trying not to laugh.  Mr Trump must have got the wrong end of the stick. She dismissed his remarks, but gently as you would to a child in a paddy.

Time to put up those screens. We won’t be talking Trump; we’ll be celebrating the English team who gave us a semi-final to watch. It is the first time in 28 years and it seems that there will be a possible runner-up match on Saturday. Let them win something beyond memories and our supporters in Russia will thank them.

Congratulations to England; we loved it, but we lost it. Let’s keep cheering for them until Sunday. Of course then will be the culmination of Wimbledon and the ultimate in channel-hopping.

Have an exciting weekend.

Congratulations to the Thai, British & International Divers – Thai Boys’ Rescue

Hello

How wonderful, the young boys are all out, safe and sound. Thrill and delight for their parents and relief for everyone around the world. It is down to brilliant logistics and Engineers who diverted pumped up water, yet mainly the divers who worked tirelessly to actually get the boys out.

To the filmmakers, you are not operating in a democracy. You will have to use exquisite politeness to talk to people. It would be politic to approach Narongsak  Osatthanarkorn, the Governor of the Chiang Rai region and logistics wizard for the operation to bring the boys out of the caves. A tremendous job and he should be acknowledged for that.

Thank you to the divers who undertook missions to the caves, put full oxygen tanks along the route.  I think they had to do that every day for every four rescues.  It would be good to hear their story.

To the 7 divers from the UK’s Cave Research Council, congratulations on your brilliant work. It is another notch in pride of the UK. I hope that the boys start objecting to their bland diets, always a good sign.

Good weekend!

Share a common rulebook – So sensible!

Hello

The deliberations at Chequers have been agreed to a soft Brexit and we will never want a hard Brexit, as that will hit the man on a street, trying to keep himself in a job and the economy growing.
“Sharing a common rulebook’ is a chance to compromise with a Customs Union , Irish borders for the Irish and free trade. There will be enough arguments against it from the EU as the UK seems to have done a good deal for itself. Some jealous Europeans will not like it, so we need to present a united front, just like the Cabinet. It is our country at stake.
Congratulations to Mrs May.
If some dimwit Conservative MP’s attempt ‘dear John letters’, let them go back to their constitutuencies beforehand. And later give them Mr. Trump to deal with. He will tear us apart if he can.

LucyLou

PS So we have lost Mr David Davis. Everyone will thank him for what he has done, but to quit when we are near agreement is sad.

Help the Thai boys out in bodybags plus oxygen

Helllo

Everyone with children knows that ours could be in this situation. You hand over responsibility to the Scout Leader or Teacher on a school trip and hope that everything will turn out alright.

Maybe crazy ideas:

  1. What if the boys could be put under anaesthetic and have oxygen strapped to their chests? If they were put into something flexible or rubbery like a body bag that you see in hospitals, would it be quicker and easier to transport them out of the caves? Maybe it is too fraught with danger, but the Thai SEALS are trying everything.
  2. There is a bore hole that pumps out water. What if a shaft was dug around it and made big enough to extract the boys?
  3. What if it were possible or easier to find or build another entrance that could be further into the caves? Send a drone underwater? One that is less than 2.5 km that they are currently trying to do. Can you map caves from above?
  4. If the boys are awake, they must have one person touching them at all times to keep contact. This will create calm and keep them calm. Are the Thais Buddists as Monks’ chanting can be soothing?
  5. An mp3 player and earphones, playing favourite music? Anything to distract them from the ordeal.
  6. If any idea here could make someone think, not that but maybe this.   They are in the best hands.
