Boris tramples over John Humphrys in a spat over immigration

During the interview with John Humphrys on BBC Radio 4,  Boris Johnson, the leading Brexiteer in the Cabinet , was asked why Britain should try to control immigration if it is economically beneficial for the country.Boris answered: “It is not a good idea to have absolutely no control. And what is certainly not a good is for politicians to stand up year after year and say ‘We can cut immigration to the tens of thousands’ when they know fine well that is legally impossible.

May savaging the saboteurs? or put to the sword by Brexiteers?

As a conversion, it is more astonishing than St. Paul on the road to Damascus!  PM May has suddenly become a clean Brexiteer!  This is the lady who dubbed anyone who wanted a clean break from the EU “crazy” and  a “fanatic!” This is the lady who admits she is a Remainer, who gave free rein to the Chancellor to slag off Brexit and whose husband Phil, a hedge fund manager, loves the EU almost more than life itself.It struck me as odd that when the PM announced the forthcoming election in Parliament, there was not a Brexiteer in sight. David Cameron, Blair, Cleggers, even the EU members were ecstatic at the news and announced glowingly that a huge mandate would “ensure the best deal for Britain” something they suddenly seemed awfully happy about.

Pious Chuka and Starmer ignore the dirty dealings of Remain

Chuka Umunna continually insists that the Leave campaign “pledged” to pay £350M to the NHS.  Oddly he has admitted in print that no Leaver ever explicitly made such a pledge – their remarks were only suggestions.  This is confirmed by a quote he gave to the London Standard. (below).chukaumunaLabour is in such disarray, this is the sort of trivial snitching Chuka and Keir Starmer are reduced to.  Much ridiculed “independent” Professor Bob Watt from Buckingham University has even reported the Leave campaign to the CPS, charging them with “undue influence.” Continue reading

How desperate Dave flogged off Boris’s Trade Union Bill to save the EU

Boris has battled with the unions since 2010.  He has pressed for trade union reform from that date.  In September 2015, Boris persuaded the government to  back a Trade Union Bill,  that would ban workers in key public sectors from striking unless industrial action was supported by 40% of union members. camerontradeunionThe move meant that any worker who abstains in a strike vote or forgets to return their ballot paper will effectively be deemed to be opposing the move. The details of the Bill are here.  Boris said in September 2015:

“I’m very grateful that the Government is at last moving on this as this is something we’ve been lobbying for in TfL for many years now.  “The [current] ballot thresholds are too low, they’re absurd! Continue reading

Before he flogged the water cannon, dictator Sadiq should have asked the people

As a Mayor of London keenly aware of democracy, Boris Johnson held three polls as to whether he should buy water cannon, after the  London riots.  The Met badly needed them. .  Boris did not just wake up one morning and think “Today  I fancy hosing down a few people.” boriswatercannonThe Met were rightly concerned that, after the worst violence in living memory,  44 police were  injured, 4 very seriously.  There were 450 arrests, many of them foreign insurgents, some armed.   Water cannon can prevent buildings burning to the ground and protect fire fighters and  paramedics in a way hoses cannot. Hundreds of buildingsw were burnt to the ground.  The cops wanted to prevent this happening again. Continue reading

Peace process. Boris and Dave settle their differences

They were on different sides and they both fought like Titans for and against Brexit.  The reverberations resounded through politics.  In the end, the irresistible force of David Cameron crashed against the rock of the Boris Johnson immoveable object and shattered!  But in the scheme of things, they have been through a lot together and  it is all water under the bridge now. borisdaveLast week, Boris and Dave drank whiskies on the balcony of the Royal David Hotel in Israel, and after a “frank exchange” of views, agreed to settle their differences.  Boris has never been one to hold a grudge.
