British people, especially MP’s, do not like being asked to be patriotic as they do that every day as second nature.

If you want people to be patriots, a leader must first be one themselves. Mrs May betrayed her own MP’s in a bid to reach voters. Evidently, she had no idea that constituency parties mainly hold their MP’s in high esteem.

She even tried to sell the work of the security forces that keep us safe. That is unpatriotic and not something within her power. What did the Queen say?

The Prime Minister lies to people without compunction in order to have her Brexit deal passed. Are we going to stop at three attempts? Have politicians no strategic vision to see that the public may erupt or more likely fall into a deep sleep of boredom. It would be almost impossible to make them interested in politics ever again.

MPs’ jobs could not be justified as in the public interest.

However, I do not think another Referendum is in the interests of this country and the money used up for it, would be better spent on paying out Universal Credit sooner. Why would Jeremy Corbyn not act like a Socialist?

Just a thought, if it was Labour putting this country through the wringer, what would the Conservatives be doing now?

We already have a deal that gives us access to the European Economic Area. Dr Liam Fox’s negotiating teams have been working very hard to secure deals. It is the political deal that may be voted on for a third time. Mrs May should leave now as she has no idea what to do with the extra time.

We can leave on 29 March with £30 bn worth of deals under our belt. For the rest, she should leave Parliament to sort the country out. They have their own private Member Bills and putting those into Parliament could make their discussions interesting again.

Time has moved on. Thank goodness for Speaker,  Mr Bercow who has saved Parliament from voting for the same Brexit deal that was rejected on 11 March. As he said:

“Parliament matters. .   a third deal, the same one. “

It is also bullying to present the same Bill again and make MP’s waver enough to back her deal.

Mr Bercow has saved us all and was praised for his ‘enormous good sense’ according to the Brexiteer, Bill Cash..

Leave the Attorney-General alone; lawyers will always express a moment of doubt so that they cannot be sued later.

Now, tragically, she has offered to fire Olly Robbins, he who has presented her to the letter, discarded by the wayside. Is there anyone else to be so disregarded, apart from Parliament of course.

3rd time lucky?

Why are MP’s in Parliament voting over and over again on the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal? What has changed?

She is talking to the DUP again, having already given them £2 bn since 2017. What have they spent it on? We should have been informed in stages. Even charities have to declare what they have done with donations from a government source.

How can it be patriotic or democratic for Northern Ireland to receive funds in kind, when the rest of the UK has to face cuts in Councils’ funding?

Mrs May’s promises tend to be ethereal and float away before anyone notices. She may promise to stand down in October, although sitting through a hostile Conservative Conference would be intolerable for her. She may use the opportunity to say that she has changed her mind about leaving and still has much work to do. Then what would we do?

Have MP’s, who see no change in her deal, been awarded anything from a knighthood to money for a cherished Bill of their own? How unpatriotic and undemocratic is that? We must block anyone who receives funds in kind and they should justify their votes to their local Constituency Party or stand down from their Seat at the next Election.

And what about the people? Most of us are sick to the back teeth at the mere mention of Brexit. Do we understand less than when we started? How can she justify voting 3 times on the same deal, but not a Referendum? It’s because she doesn’t want us to have a say. Parliament’s Politicians are enough for one deal, or three.

We are a very powerful member of the EU. If we leave on 29 March 2019 without a deal, who will look daft? 27 EU countries, while we look for the best deals for our economy. There is a whole world out there, WTO for starters, our Commonwealth and ex-Commonwealth countries a close second.

How stupid we are looking in the EU countries. Mrs May blatantly does not care about the people. She is trying to cajole and threaten MP’s (never a good match). Does she want to be a laughing stock?

What about the migrants? We should be grateful to them. Most could go elsewhere, yet they choose to be here. Everyone already here should be allowed to stay unless they have committed a criminal offence. Stop uncertainty by celebrating our communities. Let’s not differentiate one person from another. We are all members of a community and we should be grateful to the Police and law for protecting us.

M. Macron wants to vilify us, but he has massive rioting problems at home. His citizens want more pay, to feed their families. President Trump has been beautifully silent while his government shutdown just meant that key workers had to toil without pay so that he could move money to his supposed wall in Mexico. And that was a lot of people without money for at least three months. Up to then he had done well, at least by lower-paid Americans.

Politicians across the world are mostly old. If you are under 30, they will all look old. Let Trump’s young computer hackers build for the common good and put a satellite to trace the Mexican border. Try for a muted response to people trying to enter illegally. They may be migrant workers on whom we all depend to pick fruit.

The point is to silently make the members of the EU look stupid rather than us. People in the UK deserve a better deal than the one they are currently getting. Politicians to vote on the same deal, in the third meaningful vote, for a third time? Who are you kidding? That is definitely taking the mickey.

Great, now we can choose quality over quota

Hello

Now the 2 billion sour … berries we imported last year will become a smaller quantity of a sweeter variety. We no longer need berries grown by how prolific the plant is. And that applies to anything we buy from the EU.

Well done to the MP”s who voted against the deal today, 12 March 2019. . Now we can start again, to protect our laws, our money and the independence we  cherish. So proud to be British and thank you very much to every MP who had the courage to stand up and vote for what he/she believed in. For the record, the result was 391 votes against the deal and 242  for it..

Mrs May has given us a constitutional crisis. How is she putting the welfare of the country above her personal ambition?  Continue to be  involved; we need you to give information that we can use to shape a different deal.

Young Conservatives and Brexit, like a knife through butter,

Hello

Thirty years ago, a group of us were invited to a rich man’s house, so select that there was no road name. that later had us rolling into the aisles. Undeterred, we arrived for political debate, to be confronted by a happy MP brandishing rubber gloves for the washing-up. Somehow the message between us had been lost.

Has the Conservative government asked the keenest, most technologically advanced people, who love being Young Conservatives to step up and help. This is the call they have been awaiting!  They will work out the Irish backstop and have it operational, hopefully, by the end of February. They may follow or adapt Calais’ post-Brexit strategy of a traffic-light system according to which transporters have the right papers, a doubt about their papers or no papers at all.

Young Conservatives are the government’s greatest, free resource and they are keen. What more do you want?

I suspect that Mrs May is afraid of our young people; a devastating reading. She wants utter control, which is presumably why she put the same, heartily disliked person, Olly Robbins, back in charge of Brexit talks, because he repeats what she wants. He would give nothing new to Brexit.

Young Conservatives: a young, clever resource that will cut through the chaff and win us through 29 March with political and social withdrawal and signing food trade agreements. Please tell me the Conservatives learnt their lesson. The trouble is that that particular MP had to resign political life after an expenses scandal. Plus ca change.

Forget Brexit; we have a bigger problem

Hello

G. Williamson stamped all over hallowed ground last week and insulted one of our greatest trading partners. Sack him! He was highly irresponsible by suggesting our new aircraft-carrier was ready and would defend islands off China’s coast, which have nothing to do with us. He has obviously forgotten how small we are compared with China and geographically, there are large land masses between us and China.

Sack him. Mrs May must raise her eyes from Brexit and Tory defections. They mean nothing compared to losing our trade relationship with China.

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread, Mr Williamson.  Be sacked or resign quickly, so that we can restore our relationship with a major supplier.

How many toys etc., do you have that have the stamp ‘Made in China’? Hundreds including Apple and toys galore at Christmas.

Sack him so that we can smoothe over his idiocy.

Brexit – Norway-style or Canada WTO Access

Hello

 

We have at least two solid offers offering honourable ways for Britain to leave the EU. There is every reason for MP’s to remain calm and reject the nonsense that is Theresa May.

Claude Juncker famously said on UK TV that he was fed up with Mrs May asking what the EU wanted and to ask the EU what the UK wanted.

Mrs May has spoken to constituents over their MP’s heads. She has spoken to Labour and she that failed, she appealed to the Unions. She made ethereal promises to all.

Yet there has been a cross-party group meeting for months and rightly so. Mrs May has forgotten one thing: the average MP is intelligent and wants to give a well thought out opinion.

We rely on them.

Hello

Since the ridiculous worst-case scenarios for Brexit set out by the supposedly apolitical Mark Carnet, Chairman of the Bank of England to Theresa May’s stuck-in-the-mud stance, Conservative activists have been begged over the heads oof their MP’s to follow her Brexit deal. This splits activists and their constituency party and will make her MPs’ jobs harder. The plan to work on MP’sbis a shambles and has broken trust within the Conservative Party. Endless shabby promises of promotion if they vote for this dreadfull list of nonsensical words shows a monumental ego at work that does not brook failure. And for a second time, she expects a positive reaction after going behind MP’s backs

And remember the Welsh farmers seen at Market with separate images of Mrs May- did they meet? It may turn out that the EU would like a discussion about subsidies, as they profit too.

I have asked for cross-party discussions before. Now one such movement is being built against her.It is so unnecessary.

Take a rural MP with an interest in agriculture and ask for a Representatives from the National Farmers’Union and talk with counterparts from the EU. Talk in the UK of course.

Is it possible that we took the cheap option? MrsMay has not worked for 2 years on Brexit as claimed.  As late as September 2017 there was a panicked recruitment drive as the government realised they had too few negotiators.

Today there were two demonstrations for and against Brexit. Not much media coverage.

We can make a Brexit deal for the UK but the people want more involvement. Gone are the loners. We are team members.. Maybe MPs can set us an example.

I hope we find clarity; we have a lot to offer.
