In a timely and terrific boost for Brexit, a deal is imminent that would mean almost immediate pay increases for NHS workers across the board. The deal is for a stonking 4 billion, payable over 3 years, reported the BBC.
The BBC said: “More than a million NHS staff, including nurses, porters and paramedics, can expect pay increases of at least 6.5% over three years, the BBC understands. Continue reading
May threw money at Facebook for ads. during the recent ill fated GE campaign. Both May and Jeremy Corbyn paid millions to Facebook and Google at last year’s snap election despite both vowing to clampdown on the offshore social media giants.
The Conservatives spent more than four times as much as Labour did on Facebook ads racking up a £2 million bill compared to £577,000 on the controversial social network when fighting the last general election. Continue reading
Tory Chairman Brandon Lewis has reported that Tory membership is rising by the day. Tory support has swelled to 500,000 including activists. The bottom line is voters simply don’t know what Labour stands for anymore, and the way Corbyn stuck up for the Russians has probably sounded the death knell on his career.
Six thousand Tory supporters have signed up since January alone. Continue reading
There are many ways that the UK can respond to the attempted murder of Russian double agent Skripal, says Boris. He added that the support for Britain abroad has been extremely encouraging. The British government has a range of tools it can use to strike back at Moscow after the Kremlin was linked with the attempted murder of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal.

As a blogger, over the years, I have built up a record of information on the EU that relies on links. It is deeply worrying that many of these links that relate to official documents from the EU explaining how the EU works, are no longer available.
For example, a link to http://www.eu.facts.uk that explains how the EU is allowed to issue laws without our approval, and we only now have a veto over 20% of EU principles, is no longer available to the people of this country. Click this sentence and you will find Access denied.
That’s rich! ” Theresa May ‘orders squabbling ministers to Chequers away day’ to put an end to Brexit war”, screamed the Daily Mirror headline. For the PM to describe the vital concerns of Brexiteers over the most important issue for this country for centuries as “squabbling” is just an insult. The reason for the “away day” was because the PM seemed to be veering towards a customs union.It was the same today. One of the headlines in the Sunday Times today in an article by Tim Shipman read “Theresa May’s chief of staff Gavin Barwell ‘tried to kneecap Boris Johnson’” A private letter from Boris to very few people was leaked to Sky News.
