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.

Save Our Soul, Keep Theresa May As Prime Minister Plus Customs Union

Hello

No Prime Minister is ever popular, as there are self-serving Cabinet members ready to take the role.  It is disgraceful that the new Home Secretary caved in to a suggestion to join the guys in the Cabinet.  Lobbyists may be  trying to destroy our democracy. Have they been investigated?  Do we know where they come from?

Mrs May is doing a fine job, which is generally thankless.  Thank you.  You have stood up for businesses and for the existing export route via Customs. Before the EU/Common Market, if anyone can remember, we had petty rivalries with the French. They refused our beef, so we went tit-for-tat and refused entry to the UK of their lamb.  We cannot afford to have that happen, with every product.

If it is true that 75% of our exports go to the EU, then we must preserve a fast-track Customs between us. 75%. 3/4, most of our trade. We will put our businesses out of business!

If it is also true that the UK would run out of food within days of no Customs Union, then we are doomed. Unless others in Cabinet put aside their wishes to pursue new  and perhaps lucrative Customs deals with countries outside the Commonwealth. The country and your constituents need you to stand with the Prime Minister.

Those who wish to make Customs Unions  with the USA should talk to Tesco. They had their fingers severely burnt after diving into the American market.   Fiercely, maybe half of the USA think the UK is in Europe and only as part of a tour.  Read not interested.

I don’t care whether there are splits within the Conservative Party. They don’t matter. Food does.  You have to keep happy every person who contributes to our GDP, from steel* to utilities to every person in a strained NHS, who turns up to work day in day out.

  • Don’t get me started on a ridiculous attempt at the US choosing to be introverted. Their problem is that they cannot manufacture the type of steel that we sell to them. £300 million odd? When we had an Empire, we sent our citizens to teach people in other countries how to trade with us.  We could offer the same to the US? Outrageous? So is chlorinated chicken.
