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

Of course the French celebrate Easter

Hello

We all need a break over Easter. The public is sick to the back teeth. Let us leave the EU immediately and draw the vestiges of our dignity around us. LEAVE. You just have to say it. What happened to 12 April? We don’t need any more time.

We don’t need time; we need rest.

Let the MP’s go to their second homes in their constituencies and let their husbands/wives shield them from Whips. The Constituency Association in the constituencies need also to protect MP’s from activists, from the media and get some rest.

it is much better to rest than to keep working flat-out. They will be ready to talk again next Tuesday 23 April.

How daft of M. Barnier to suggest that the French do not celebrate Pacques. Of course they do!

And for everyone else on the negotiating teams, find a darkened room and close your eyes.empty your mind of all thought. This takes practice, yet pretend that you have nothing to do for the next few days and go outside and enjoy the forecasted sunshine.

Happy Easter everyone.

Time to declare our position

Is history repeating itself?

Mrs May called a General Election within six months of winning one. It was a massive miscalculation because she and her two autocratic aides had kept all details to themselves.

Now, with the deadly boredom for the public and mounting panic for businesses, that is Brexit, we have no details. Why do I get the feeling that every time M. Barnier and co., report good progress, it means that we have conceded something? The trouble is that the public knows nothing and MP’s are being stonewalled, when the whole plan should have been made available to them. They should be signing off the details, but still Mrs May is silent.

The second problem is that we are being bullied by the EU. If 75% of our exports go to the EU, then what will happen to them if there is no deal? It will be the same as it is for us in the UK, so therefore those businesses should also be panicking. Negotiators for the EU and those for the UK need to show their hands. People on the streets is not a feature of British daily life. Agitators and activists breed in this atmosphere.

You cannot disrespect people’s lives; you have to give them answers. Wearing down Civil Servants and trying to blame them for Mrs May’s intransigence is unfair. If there is confirmation of a ‘no deal’, the possible consequences should be discussed in Parliament and Emergency Plans set up to deal with it, before we bounce out.

Meanwhile, our Prime Minister and thus our country have been insulted by M. C-J Juncker, the Luxembourg President of the EU Commission. He danced into a speech, days after Mrs May had danced the Conservative Conference to a happy conclusion. For publicly mocking the Head of another member state, he should be sacked. Had she been a man, would that have happened? Yes, probably; he does not consider us equal partners, a cheek coming from his small country. I should think his citizens are mortified.

Brexit is not a contest; it is about the future of the UK. The Referendum threw up almost a 52% to leave and 48% to remain. The British have been on the streets, demonstrating, which shows the level of frustration out there. Ignore it at our peril.  However, sack any MP who wants another Referendum; you can’t do that just because you did not like the result the first time.

It is time for Mrs May to show her hand. If she does not do so, she risks civil disunity, never mind political unity. Disappointment is being hurled from all sides.  The teams of negotiators can no longer consider our position; we should declare it. I suppose Mrs May has to trust in MP’s of all hues to bring us about instead of flapping in the wind. We are a fiercely proud island nation, sometimes mavericks, always independent. in our history, leaving the EU will be a blip in trade.

We just have to wake up and look at what other countries are doing,  China’s refusal to accept our plastic waste may mean a boon to putting plastics in roads (British startup). We have numerous Chinese students and financial services’ workers in London; let us keep our friends.
