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

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.

Boris Banter

Hello

It behoves Mr Johnson as part of Her Majesty’s government, to avoid repeating someone else’s soundbite. Now all the enemy need say, is that the jibe about Football’s World Cup this summer, was started by Boris. He ought to deny it vehemently as he should deny all questions about security.  He would be wise to avoid the subject all together, otherwise we risk digging ourselves into a bottomless pit. Do you want to be on the wrong side of a man who spends his weekends chasing football? Their wives would also be disappointed if Boris spoilt their days out whilst husbands are away.

I did have to look up ’emetic’. It means sickening. Maybe Boris’ speeches should be important for what they leave out and he can retain some dignity.

Sorry to be suspicious, but M. Barnier suddenly beaming over Brexit makes me think that we have given them a huge amount of money, that we don’t have. As a voter, could we please skip Brexit in the News and save it up for the next day. Everyone I speak to, is being bored to death over something where we have no voice or control. Do not say that we had our chance to vote. The UK voted on immigration, which has been, at best, skated over.

Have a good week.

If There’s Any Sacking To Be Done – Insult To British Workers 04/10/17

Hello there

Boris Johnson’s Deputy is in the US.  With any luck, Sir Alan Duncan’s speech will largely have gone over the heads of the State Governors.

However, they know when someone takes a swipe at their voters.  The working-class, (now really a dead phrase to describe decent hardworking people), as Sir Alan Duncan ought to know, are quite often Conservative voters, as Conservatives are aspirational!

Perhaps the only tenet of Donald Trump’s government is to try and give the workers a better life. He is always positive and optimistic about Americans.  When the State Governors hear that Sir Alan thinks our people were ‘stirred up’ by the Brexit Campaign; well, we all were.  Shall we? Shan’t we?  We wanted plain information, but that was in short supply.

Mr Trump and the Senators will think that Sir Alan disrespects his own people, so how will he treat theirs?  What is he doing there, apart from causing a diplomatic incident?  He was at best patronising and at worst contemptuous of the workings of democracy (during the Brexit Referendum) and of the people. He described them as ‘throwing a tantrum’, which I think is tantamount to insulting our whole country.

So, Mrs May, or is it Boris who should respond?  What more damage can your Deputy inflict?  Bring him back home quickly and give him a job that shows him how to respect workers.  After all, they make our economy strong and bring us peace and prosperity.

PS I hope that no-one uses this to hurt Boris, as he gave a rousing speech to the Conservative Conference and kept delegates in a ripple of laughter, mostly at his wonderful use of the English language.  Mrs May is very clever to keep him as a support to the Conservative delegates.  Apparently they have been nodding a little at previous speeches.

Boris Has Pulled Back From The Brexit Brink

Hello Everyone

Of course he has.  The newspaper article is the direct result of a valuable and valid member of the UK Cabinet being diverted and ignored.  He would have much to offer Brexit, but he has Mrs May’s original problem.  Brexit cannot be fulfilled by any one individual.  It needs experience from across the political parties.  Mrs May is delegating, I think.

Thirty billion pounds over 3 years in return for continued access to the EU single market sounds like a good deal.  Boris is used to that kind of negotiation; he held LWT’s unions off  for several years.

I look forward to him being given a valid job, in connection with the Foreign  Secretary role.  Outbursts of this kind do no-one any good, but they do make it easy for MP’s to act alone to give countries better oil deals etc.  The DUP that £1 billion promised, is fraying at the seams.  MP’s should only act on checking with and having permission from Mrs. May.

Mugwumps and Fopdoodles – British Politics Today

Hello Everyone,

Anyone who dispenses with the services of Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson would be shooting themselves in the foot.

We, that is, the British public, like him. He is irreverent but always spot-on with his literary comments.  He told a Parliamentary Committee that he was not staying for a third round of the same questions, as he had already answered them.  He had better things to do, which begs the question of who makes up the diatribe between the committee and the attendee.

We might waver a little about his post as Foreign Secretary, but there have been no complaints thus far, no diplomatic flag-waving by the EU. The odds are that he is doing a good job.   However, in an article for ‘The Sun’ newspaper, last week, he did call Jeremy Corbyn, Labour leader:

“ a ‘mutton-headed old mugwump”.

At last, someone is using our beautiful language, instead of dumbing it down for immigrants.

Deliciously, MP Tom Watson, most remembered for his loud role in the Rupert Murdoch fiasco, has struck back. During a speech to Blackpool Trade Union, Usdaw, today Monday 2nd May, ‘The Sun’ newspaper has it that Tom Watson will apparently call Boris:

‘a caggie-handed cheeseheaded fopdoodle with a talent for slummocking about’.

(‘Cheeseheaded’ is a type of screw with a raised cylindrical head’ .  A fopdoodle is a stupid, insignificant fellow.)  Well he is not a fopdoodle, although I will now seek an opportunity to use the word elsewhere!  It is hilarious and I love it.  It is especially funny as this is after Tom Watson, is to say today, according to ‘The Sun’ newspaper:

“At a time when we need a serious-minded, national representative …”

Interestingly there is no explanation for a mugwump. Good old Google.  A mugwump is a person who remains aloof, especially from party politics. Since it rhymes with ‘chump’, he is then worsening the insult.

Please, please, please can we continue these linguistics? It is a delightful part of being English.

Have a great week

LucyLou
