Although Theresa May claims to be “protecting Brexit”, the strategy of rushing through a snap election should give Brexit voters huge cause for alarm. She is duplicating the strategy of Harold Wilson in 1975.
Ted Heath rushed us illegally into the EU in 1972, by not calling a Referendum. Three years later, Harold Wilson apparently set this right, but he turned the Ref. into a vote of confidence for the government which, like May, he knew he would win. He then took advantage of the innocent public by binding us further into the EU. Continue reading
There is only one person to blame for the dire state of Anglo/Russian relations and that is Theresa May. The Russians have a right to be upset that PM May cancelled Boris Johnson’s trip to Moscow three times , then turned on him and screamed and abused him in the media.
Putin showed good will by giving Boris an open invititation to visit Moscow to discuss his 2016 pleace plan. The invitation was an olive branch for peace. If Boris had been allowed to quietly go through the plan in depth with President Putin, who knows what would have transpired. When May blocked the trip for the third time, the Russians, who unleashed their fury in the media, had every right to feel upset. Boris certainly did. Continue reading
It was a huge step forward for peace that Prez. Putin was keen to discus the Foreign Secretary’s 2016 Syrian peace plan, and he generously offered Boris an open invitation to visit Moscow. Tragically, in an attempt to undermine Boris, May blocked the trip three times.
Boris was then accused of ducking his meeting with the Russians. The G7 inititative was an afterthought to retrieve the situation, but Remoaner members of course, didn’t go for it.
The abusive articles in yesterday’s papers were unprecedented, with Adam Boulton, a SKY Remoaner and Simon Walters of the Remoaner Mail on Sunday sinking to the sleaziest depths in jeers and name calling. Continue reading
Several articles in the Mail on Sunday and in the Sunday Times, including one by the normally accurate Adam Boulton, omit such fundamental. facts that they can only be regarded as stitch up/hatchet jobs.
The facts ignored are these. When Boris Johnson met various US top aides of Donald Trump, he was described as “brilliant” by one of these aides and his meetings were exceptionally successful. The independent thinking of our Foreign Secretay was well received. Continue reading

Boris Johnson’s view on how to achieve peace in Syria has never wavered and his latest speech is stronger than ever. He has held this view since 2016, and below, in the Sunday Telegraph today, he explains exactly he believes this is the way forward.
Boris begins: “It is in some ways bizarre that Bashar al-Assad should be so reckless. It seems mystifying that he should now raise the stakes by so blatantly murdering so many of his own people with chemical weapons. Indeed, there is a sense in which it would frankly be more convenient for the outside world to pretend that it did not happen. Continue reading

In a childish display of military might, Kim Jong-Un held a parade of missiles in the streets of Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea. My missiles are bigger than yours was his unsubtle message. The response of our Foreign Secretary was measured. Stop threatening international security and abide by UN rules, he told Kim. Prez Trump has warned that North Korea is “looking for trouble” and ordered an aircraft carrier group to the area to highlight American concern. China has expressed fears that “conflict could break out at any moment”, and that such a situation would bring no winners. Continue reading
On Fox News this morning, it turns out that other interviewers have made the same statement as the one that got Sean Spicer into such trouble. They said “Even the Nazis did not use chemical weapons” and in one sense this is completely right.
Chemical weapons are flammable. What broadcasters meant to say was “Even the Nazis were not so reckless, sadistic and stupid as to use chemical weapons in warfare in an uncontrolled environment.” Continue reading
