Parliament has spoken but Anna Soubry is still not happy

Anna Soubry has spent all week asking for Parliament to be sovereign.  Parliament should always have the final decision, argues Anna, not the people.  So has Gina Miller and Gina has gone to considerable effort and expense to ensure this is so. Her logic is shaky to say the least.  Anna says sure, the people voted to leave.  She accepts that and supports it.  But that’s over now!  (?)  If the PM gets a good deal, great, but if not, Parliament must then have a meaningful vote and take over. It was left to Tory MP Mark Harper to explain to Anna that voters had voted to leave the EU, good deal or bad.    They want rid of EU interference and intend to leave whatever the deal the PM gets.  Continue reading

Is May up for a fight to the finish over Brexit?

An article in the Times today by Iain Martin nails what we have all been thinking. When is Prime Minister May going to show she’s up for the fight? Show some urgency?  How long does she expect to get away with remarks like “Brexit means Brexit”, “We will get the best possible deal for Britain” and other statements of the bleeding obvious, repeated ad infinitum?mayhammond3As Home Secretary, it worked from her own point of view, for May to sit on the fence.  Her speciality was dragging issues out for so long, everybody forgot about them.  Look at the child abuse inquiry.  So many unsuitable judges have been appointed,  the inquiry has never got going, and it was first started three years ago.

Trump victory is a huge boost for Brexit, US and Britain

Like President Putin, Donald Trump is a huge fan of Brexit and most of all, our  Brexit success is down to Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage.  Nigel Farage is already on a plane bound for the US, because a job as the US Ambassador for the EU is in the offing. The President Elect admired Boris’s speeches so much, he quoted from Boris’s winning Brexit speech in his winning speech. trumpwin2PM Theresa May was nothing to do with winning Brexit, she sided with Remainer Cameron, so it is hard to see that she will have much in common with the President Elect.  After the bullying by Obama over Britain leaving the EU, Trump’s assurance that our membership of the EU is our own business and we will be in the front of the queue for a trade deal is welcome indeed.  Obama said nastily that out of the EU, Britain would be in the back of the queue for a trade deal.

Brexit for the last 4 months.     What has the PM achieved, except to let in a legal challenge by Gina Miller, that was successful in the High Court! mayindiajpgThe judges who ruled in the High Court were all rabid Remainers.  So are the judges being hand picked for the appeal in the Supreme Court.

Nigel Farage beats down Gina Miller on Marr

Gina Miller is forced to admit to Nigel Farage that politicians have lied all along the line over the EU Referendum.   They lied to us in 1972, when Ted Heath gave his word to the British people that we were not losing British sovereignty, and carried on lying over the years. Continue reading
