It is a nightmarish scenario. The EU know they have not conceded much, if anything and 27 countries who threatened not to sign last week, are now racing to sign. Bizarre. Weird. and somewhere: dishonest.
There may be content in the deal, but the words are nonsense and strung in a line. How dare Mrs May take our intelligence and throw it down the throats of an eager EU?
Eighty Conservative MP’s have publicly declared their opposition. Well done; it’s good to see MP’s standing up for their constituents. They have also been made to look fools by the government and more so, perhaps, as they trusted Mrs May to bring in a good deal. Let the Campaign for Plain English see it and there will be uproar.
For next week, let’s plan a new Brexit and refuse the scandal of the EU keeping concessions. Messrs. Barnier and CJ Juncker are celebrating tonight; let’s make them cry. And frankly, if we were another smaller country, how much more would they be bullied.
Mrs May is living in a bubble of fantasy.
I hope that there is no way this scandalous note of history can be accepted by politicians. Do the people want a vote again? It sounds like the buck is being passed.
A billion pound company was built by two men, one a marketing man, Clay Brendish, the other a finance man.
The company was Admiral Computing and no deal was done unless a proposal, had been through several levels of discussion.
So Mrs May has put in the proposal at Chequers. Unfortunately, she has some highly dramatic Cabinet members and this one resigned and others threatened it. Then they started thinly-veiled leadership talks within the Conservative Party. Naturally, Mrs May is irritated, especially as it distracts her from doing her job.
If there is anything the local Party members can do, it is to hold the party line. But and it is a big but, Mrs May must allow her proposal to be evaluated and discussed until it becomes more palatable. It may become a compromise and that would be a success.
Cabinet members and MP’s must stop strutting into our newspapers of a weekend. The English prefer someone who will get on with the job, like Mrs May. The EU and M. Barnier are becoming more conciliatory. Anyone who proposes a second Referendum should be given to backbenchers who have more insight and considerably more experience.
Thirty years ago on the night train from Paris, friends from Africa would promise Customs that they would become bricklayers or nannies. Today, it would seem to be fruit pickers.
Have a safe week.
PS. Have these hurricanes bounced partly back into the Atlantic from the Carolinas and Virginia and become three smaller amber and yellow storms across the UK? Weather forecasters are calling it the start of the 2018-19 hurricane season. Don’t be daft; the UK does not have one.
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.
