Body blow for Hammond as PM picks Bojo strategy for EU

Outstanding generous speech by May sets the standard for EU negotiations

After today’s Brexit speech from Theresa May, some Remoaners were complaining.  I had just explained that there is a big difference between a referendum and a general election.  In the EU Ref., Leave and Remain were not competing to form a government.  The only purpose of any referendum is to get a straight answer to a straight question,  in this case, Should we leave the EU?may2Leave and Remain cannot therefore make financial pledges.  They can only make suggestions.  The battlebus ad. was about taking control and the figure quoted on the bus was given as the sum we pay the EU every week.  Let’s give £350M to the NHS was one suggestion how to spend the money.

On the back foot, the EU admits they are in terrible position

An Italian eurocrat ordered Boris Johnson that under no circumstances must we negotiate with the US regarding a deal until we have left.  Still trying to  rule the roost!  Who, in their right mind, ever made the absolutely terrible decision that we get involved with these bullying shysters in the first place? boriseuchiefUS President-elect Mr Trump’s remarks in a bombshell interview that he did not care if the entire EU collapsed and that he will prioritise relations with Britain over those with Brussels has really put the wind up EU chiefs.  The balance of power has shifted with a vengeance.

Now the Russians accuse superbrain Boris of starting a Cold War

The Russians accused genial Boris Johnson today of starting a Cold War!  Rather a hysterical overreaction to Boris’s successful New York visit.  Straight talking Boris is a uniter, not a divider, but he was appalled at the Russians’ treatment of children in Aleppo and their support of Assad, a ruler who uses nerve gas on his own people. He would not have shirked  passing on his views.putinmoscowThe penchant of the Russians for mental chess games has also not escaped our astute Foreign Secretary.   Clearly they are concerned he is onto their manoeuvres, can play better than they can and has warned the President Elect all about them. The Sun reported:  The Foreign Secretary, who visited Mr Trump’s transition team earlier this week, had previously said Russia was “up to all sorts of very dirty tricks” such as cyber warfare.
