A Brexit Map to save the UK

A few nuggets from Boris Johnson’s talks tonight. Unfortunately, all of those idiots from the media have fallen into his trap. He said that he would obey the law from the UK Supreme Court (sorry got that wrong in a previous post). He promised to abide by it, although he didn’t agree with it and questioned how the Justice could have anything to do with political matters.

All hell broke loose, with the people who condemned his words. Clearly wrongfooted, the media went into undignified and ruffled huffs, when they realised that he was still intent on leaving on 31 October,

The solution –

A mini Health/NHS deal where people continue to have their NHS prescription drugs;

Supersede the Northern Ireland backstop, as it would mean we continue in the Customs Union, still to be in single market EU and Justice from Europe, which would upset the UK Supreme Court no end.

Ireland should have the chance to decide what they want and submit it to the Prime Minister.. What has Mrs Arlene done with the £1 billion we gave her. Are they just sitting on the interest?

And the real reason Jeremy Corbine doesn’t want a General Election? His political masters would not have the same ability to gain access to him. He is more useful as Leader of the Party.

It doesn’t have to be troubled times. Just get in some tinned stocks, before they go up. We couuld all go to Sainsbury’s to give them a little boost, short-term anyway.

Good luck

Boris to resign? Are we out of our collective minds?!

Hello

Boris is the only one who has the mental power to bring about Brexit. Someone, somewhere is beavering away, trying to create a Brexit, to be submitted to the EU in ‘x’ days. However long, we need him to analyse it and produce a coherent document.

We had 3 years since the 2016 Referendum to deliver it. Mrs May just kept asking what the EU wanted. She had a discussion with our Guy (Verhoefstadt) about the Northern Ireland and admitted that she hadn’t thought to ask her to be at the meeting. Bizarre, but it followed that the UK presented a Remain document to Parliament.Naturally, it was shredded and politicians of every hue decided to air their partisan views on TV. Who told them it was a good idea? The EU was astounded, not least by childish behaviour being exhibited by our MP’s. The UK public either derided them or was embarrassed.

Ignore this conflict of interest where Scotland’s Justice Department thought it could vote for itself and no-one would notice.

Sending you strength, Boris, but where are the lawyers? This is our field, but they also know that politics should be conducted quietly, with no shouted arguments across the Commons.

Unfortunately, with all of those egos, one way to go was to suspend Parliament. It took the wind out of their sails. Now they’re coming back on Wednesday.

For Boris, gather your friends around you, political and otherwise. There will be a tumult of objection on Wednesday. Hang on, the people want you to stay. The thought of a Dictator in power (Jeremy Corbine), is very worrying. But the UK public is cleverer than JC. Five hours less a week to work, but over ten years! And it has failed as a system in France. Salaries went down as a result of working less, business owners were pessimistic. It is too gloomy to think about.

Good luck

Of course Scotland, the Remain-voting country says Boris Johnson is being unlawful

Hello

It should not be a blow to Boris Johnson, as the result was obvious as soon as Scotland declared itself. Nicola Sturgeon is always talking about leaving the UK. Let her and her ungrateful compatriots go. The first time that devolution is on the cards, they jump at it like dogs at a bone.

What does the UK lose? We have to go to British Summer Time because of their complaints. We can stop doing that. And they can only leave when they pay back the £300 million it took to build their Parliament. How many of them spend time in London instead? Raking in expenses, probably.

And North Sea oil is decreasing year on year. The rest of the UK is their biggest market.

Why hasn’t Scotland thought through their position?

The decision to bring a political issue to court is in itself unlawful. The State, the Church and Justice operate independently in our democracy and maybe it’s unwritten, but it is understood that one shall not interfere with the others. People keep talking about a constitutional crisis. If there is one, it is of Scotland’s making.

The result of Scottish interference with our democracy was a given before they started. Scottish judges presiding over their own threat to a UK Prime Minister is a conflict of interest. If anybody, it should have been presided over by, say Northern Ireland, where the people also voted to leave.

IMHO the Scots should be given their marching orders or a sincere apology to Boris Johnson. By whingeing they have taken our eye off the Brexit ball. No-one will thank them for that.

I suggest, with no legal knowledge, that the Scots voting for themselves is wrong and the following result, blindingly obvious. Boris Johnson should demand an apology. There can be no appeal when the original decision is illegal.

Give us strength and give Boris strength to ignore Scotland. Who will have a hissy fit first? All the more reason for having nothing to do with them until after Brexit.

Good luck

Repatriation of Thomas Cook’s customers will cost more than £250 m.

Hello

If the British Government coughs up £250 m, to have UK citizens repatriated, we need agreement between at least 3 parties: the hotels, the customers and our government.

Sums of £2000 have been quoted in order for customers to leave. This sounds like the hotel is trying to make up for future lost revenue, which is very unfair.

It would be reassuring if the British Embassy or Consulate in the countries concerned, could come to a financial resolution that is fair for UK customers. And what about other countries? Can they band together to get some financial resolution? A hotel that forces their customers to stay, by using security guards, must be breaking their own laws and local government should intervene to stop escalation.

A plea to people who are running out of medication. Please go to the nearest pharmacy. Drugs are global and pharmacists are much respected in other countries. Customers with medical conditions could be given priority and the hotel could allow distribution of prescription drugs. That is a priority.

If some people are receiving credits back to their credit cards, then that is good, but it is costing the UK taxpayer an awful lot of money. First, protect Thomas Cook’s pension fund, then pay off creditors and what is left should go to the repatriation costs of their customers globally. That’s the idealistic view, but Thomas Cook is not broke. Its creditors presumably outweigh its assets, which means it cannot trade. But the British government could find out where the money is. There will be some.

To the countries affected: bring back our people and your generosity will be welcomed by your future customers.

Good luck, Boris, but you might consider that £250 m is worth bringing holidaymakers back from holiday. I am sure that the other political parties will declare that they would pay it. In fact, wait for them to do it and then declare your intention.

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

Sending up rockets may save the planet in September

Hello

So North Korea wants to test its missiles. May I suggest that they work with every other country that has nuclear warheads to head off an asteroid heading for Earth this September. It is the size of a playing field. I remember someone making that exact comment when describing a crater 1.5 km in diameter that struck America. It may have been the one that killed off the dinosaurs as dust and rocks filled the air.

We have to do something. We cannot rely on our dense air, it is too big and travelling too fast.

Should it be split into smaller pieces or will that create similar catastrophic events in several craters?
My first thought is a certain number of rockets fired to meet a certain point on the asteroid to deflect it. Mathematicians and scientists can work it all out. We could co -ordinate as we are unafraid of someone taking our technology as we are willing to share in the name of saving our planet.

Whatever, all countries need to meet and soon if we are to deflect it.

Save Our Souls

Hello

I felt a great weariness lift from my shoulders when Mrs May resigned. At last we have a chance to deliver Brexit. Now someone is regrettably flattering Uncle Tom Cobley and all to stand as Prime Minister {10 so far}. It is obvious that this will split the vote and stop the best person from winning. That is the first attack on democracy.

Stop thinking your voters are stupid. And if he who has experience of three government departments, (Michael Gove), let him list his successes. That goes for the rest of them too. Is there a whisper of Nick Clegg coming back; I thought he was working for Facebook?

In the European elections, Conservative and Labour did badly, barely worth mentioning as everyone knew that that would happen. The Brexit Party took 30% of the vote and its leader Mr Farage, is now demanding a seat at the negotiating table. Fair enough. He also promised Brexit MEP’s with experience of business. Music to my ears; they live in the real world.

Why has Mrs May been allowed to go to Brussels as our Prime Minister?  I do not think she was just saying goodbye. What has she saying to C-J Juncker and mob?  It was so predictable that any country’s leader was going to stick a pin in us, whilst saying they will not accept a reworking of our Brexit Withdrawal Agreement. Great, neither do we, nor does our Houses of Parliament. The EU has not been listening and has walked straight into an accidental trap.   Let’s leave Europe to stew.

We can leave Europe on WTO terms if that is suits us. WTO has been at our side since Brexit was first mooted. Thank you. We are still friends with the Commonwealth countries and we will no longer have to accept quotas or add to food mountains.

Mrs May had to go, but not until 7 June, Why is she still dictating terms?. Back from Brussels, she tarnishes her lamp with as many laws onto the Statute Book as possible. Apparently they went on the back burner for 3 years whilst she did nothing for 2 years then gave us away in the third.

 With any luck we shall get an 11th hour tweet from Donald Trump asking who is Prime Minister? Oh dear, he will probably decide, thinking he is being helpful.

 We used to send especially strengthened high-quality steel to North America for them to create products, like aircraft wings. However, steel tariffs are decimating our business. Where will they get the good steel from?

And finally, this evening, we see evidence of people who have been in power so long that they have forgotten who they serve: the country and our democracy. To bring a ridiculous Summons to a long-serving, passionate and committed MP, is its second airing at least. This time they have involved Westminster Court no less.  It is incredible that they do not understand what they are doing. It is a transparent attack on our democracy from persons unknown. It is also true that democracies are being tested globally.

Boris Johnson is just the hapless head on which the legal mind has fallen. It is natural for MP’s to champion causes and our NHS is a valid one. £x pounds sterling; who cares? The point is we must save our NHS from the red tape of Brussels and from Frenchwomen filling our Maternity wards, as they do not dare give birth in a French hospital. Besides it’s almost free. Not for much longer!

If you question a policy written on a bus, that was created by Joe Bloggs, you cannot then blame one of our more popular politicians from running with it. Yes, it formed one of the tenets of the 2016 Referendum, because most politicians could not make themselves understood.

You cannot say after the fact that the question should not have been made. It is done. You don’t need a legal mind for that.

The 2016 Referendum had two bases for the general public: immigration and NHS payments to Brussels. If you even question one, the Referendum’s result is suddenly on shaky ground. What worries me is that these people seem to be shaking democracy deliberately. Usually it happens when people in power have been flattered, be they lawyers or politicians. It is not just here in the UK, but globally, democracies are being tested. Why?

 And ultimately, you should not have gone after Boris Johnston, on the cusp of an Election to be Prime Minister, for he is a man heralded as the People’s choice among activists and in the constituencies.

For all politicians, you have an opportunity to be the greatest MP that you can be. We need you to step up and work out Brexit for us.

Thank you

LucyLou
