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.

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

John Prescott dealt better than Nigel Farrage

Hello
Can you remember what Labour MP, Johh Prescott,did, {a man who made his way up the hard way} when pelted by a tomato? He swivelled and punched the thrower right in the face. There was no pause, just an instinctive reaction. And we laughed and laughed. Just what the tomato thrower deserved.
Fifteen years or so later, Nigel Farage was beaten by a milkshake. But he had no response. He did, inadvertently, give massive exposure to the milkshake as first reports thought it was necessary to know it was by Five Guys, a banana, salted caramel shake. The utter absurdity of it! I fell about laughing, yet the irony of it stands that he could not mention Nigel Farrage for some whimsical reason that would escalate into a war of words.

Onto Brexit, still stuck in our teeth. Madam May has thrown a choice of referendum into the ring. However, there are so many other parts in it that it could not be translated into law in a month of Sundays.
Neither did the 1922 Committee move us forward. There is no date of departure and all of these extra features appear to depend on her getting the same deal through.

MP’s just have to keep their nerve. It is the same deal as you voted down so massively the first time. In the meantime, she has managed to insult the DUP, on whose votes she usually depends.

We are grownups in a major country in the EU. We can leave and create our own Customs Union, which, yes, will have some of the EU’s ways of doing things, but it is up to us to create a part that will suit ourselves. And we can cut the red tape. And we can be free of the farrago of nonsense that makes the EU Assembly move between Brussels and Strasbourg every three weeks. The cost beggars belief.. Let them know that they will not beggar us.

And how can it even be thought of a serving Prime Minister, as repetition of a vote over the same deal which would be bad for the country, but which she cannot admit defeat, one has to ask whether Brexit may move on without her, or will some other plea be made? She is making us all look like fools, but worse the EU is getting fed up with our philanderings..

Come on, let’s set Boris onto M> Barnier and storm through Brexit. Boris is also famous for walking away from a meeting, saying that he was not going to answer the same questions a third time. What joy! No wonder the EU politicians are scared of him.

We are not having a second Referendum or a People’s Vote, because if we do, we shall be the fools of Europe and they will wipe the floor with us.. Plus the fact the people have no clue what iBrexit is about. There has to be clear direction. Can the Queen intervene  as democracy is failing?

LucyLou
PS If the vote on the political aspect of Brexit is put to MP’s before 29 June, I shall eat my hat.

Of course the French celebrate Easter

Hello

We all need a break over Easter. The public is sick to the back teeth. Let us leave the EU immediately and draw the vestiges of our dignity around us. LEAVE. You just have to say it. What happened to 12 April? We don’t need any more time.

We don’t need time; we need rest.

Let the MP’s go to their second homes in their constituencies and let their husbands/wives shield them from Whips. The Constituency Association in the constituencies need also to protect MP’s from activists, from the media and get some rest.

it is much better to rest than to keep working flat-out. They will be ready to talk again next Tuesday 23 April.

How daft of M. Barnier to suggest that the French do not celebrate Pacques. Of course they do!

And for everyone else on the negotiating teams, find a darkened room and close your eyes.empty your mind of all thought. This takes practice, yet pretend that you have nothing to do for the next few days and go outside and enjoy the forecasted sunshine.

Happy Easter everyone.

Let us leave

I am grateful that a group of senior Conservative MP’s has been formulating plans for Brexit.

Please allow us to keep the vestiges of honour and pride that we have and leave Brexit on 29 March.

Voting for Mrs May’s deal, which has twice been rejected by large margins, would be a violation of our democracy.

What has happened to silence John Bercow, who wanted to stop the Conservatives bullying their own MP’s?

Asking the country again in another Referendum would be to play into the hands of another Parliamentary party, Labour and a leader who dallies with people who hate us, for unspecified reasons. They came here and now they want to thwart our parliamentary democracy.

Asking for another Referendum is to violate the first result.

it is the first time in 27 years that we face a constitutional crisis. We bounced out of the ERM (Exchange Rate Mechanism) in 1992. We kept our money, were rescued by the IMF (International Monetary Fund) and did not fall apart, much to the EU’s chagrin.

We have been a major contributor to the EU’s funds. We have received subsidies in return, but we have not had a choice in receiving agricultural products. The berries are sour; the oranges are sweet. Break one deal; continue with the sweet one.

Let’s get quality back into our lives.

Let’s not pay for the move of the entire European Parliament every three weeks between Strasbourg and Brussels. What a waste of money!

Ask our young people to create a technological border between North and South Ireland. They will do it in a trice. This hard border rubbish should not put our deal at risk.

Let’s go; we’ve had enough of M. Barnier and co., with their deals that don’t suit us and let’s have our MP’s work harder than they ever have since entering office. We do pay you and that figure is raised every time there is a change of government.

We need you to hold your courage and your nerve and to keep us free of an unconstitutional deal. Keep us free.

LucyLou
