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 Your benefits will probably already have been withdrawn and it has resulted in misery.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?

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

I smell a rat (post EU/Mrs May Brexit signature)

Hello

Ratified by the EU in undignified haste

Two mistakes by those signing up to this Brexit nonsensical version:

  1. Politicians believe that they are more intelligent and savvy than their voters;
  2. The most mentally-challenged smell a rat when they see one.

Have we ever seen a treaty/agreement/peace terms ratified this fast? Of course not; it is Brexit baloney. Mrs May must give up elegantly and drift into history. We, in the meanwhile, need someone who inspires confusion and fear in Brussels.

Two possibilities, preferably a combination:

A politician like Barack Obama. On first entering Presidential office, he asked Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton to the White House. They gave him useful advice and they gave him stability. Further high-ranking (therefore experienced) politicians also joined him.

Boris Johnson. But not too off the wall; we need stability. Yet he will inspire us in future, if we are to have one.

If you want Brexit for the people, it should be negotiated first. Only then should Brexit become a logistical exercise.  Mrs May has succeeded in causing mental episodes in every negotiator and aide. to do your best and then too find you have been ignored from the beginning is to cause a misalignment in the brain.

I smell a rat; do you?

It is a cheek and an insult to think that no-one would notice.

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.

LucyLou
