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.
