Brilliant Boris vindicated. Proof we give £660 million to EU a week!

As  the smears, lies and vile abuse raged around him, Boris Johnson’s dignified response was that he stood by his referendum claim that we give £376 million a week to the EU – or more!

Now the truth is out!  Since 2010, we have given a stonking £660 million a week to the EU.   Continue reading

George Osborne is still trying to knife Boris Johnson

For a journalist, Dan Hodges is a nice guy, down to earth and not a bit stuck up.  His Achilles heel is he is so innocent, he shouldn’t be let out alone.

As Mayor, Boris Johnson gave a huge amount of help to George, even  bailing him out when the economy was tanking by giving him some sound economic advice.  George of course claimed all the credit, and for while some innocents, including Dan, actually believed him. Boris’s reward as proudly revealed by Dan, was George then said he intended to “knife Boris in May 2016!”.   Continue reading

Double infamy – Keir Starmer is scheming to wreck Brexit

Shadow Ministers are scheming to betray the voters by pressuring leader Jeremy Corbyn towards forcing a vote on Single Market membership – something which could split the Tory Party and cause Brexit chaos.

Keir Starmer is in the forefront of the strategy.  On the one hand, he hypocritically insists it is vital to obey the decision of the EU Referendum.  But really,  he is doing all he can to undermine the reasons that Leavers voted for Brexit.  Continue reading

Why even if they disagree, members of any government must support government policy

There is a lot of fuss right now on twitter over why leading members of any government support a government motion when they don’t agree.  Boris Johnson and Michael Gove think nurses particularly deserve a pay rise, but both of them voted in favour of keeping the cap on private sector wages. Members of the Cabinet are particularly bound by this convention.

This is because of something called collective responsibility.

Cabinet collective responsibility, also known as collective  ministerial responsibility, is a constitutional convention in governments using the Westminster System, that members of the cabinet must publicly support all governmental decisions made in Cabinet, even if they do not privately agree with them.  Continue reading

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.

Free movement will finally end, but it’s May who wants a softer Brexit

Boris and David Davis have reluctantly accepted that business will need time to adapt to the cutoff of free movement.  But an earlier report claimed that Theresa May has been campaigning within the Cabinet, for a softer Brexit,  unlocking “a deep and special partnership” with the bloc. 

She says extending FM is unavoidable. She had to wrestle with Brexit-backing Tories to secure their support.  Brexit chiefs Boris Johnson and Liam Fox have grudgingly agreed to back a transitional arrangement that would bridge the gap between Brexit and a future trade deal, the FT reported.

Cynics sneer “Politicians are all the same” but we have seen the bravest and the best

Politicians generally get a pretty harsh press. The popular opinion is  “They are the same!” and anyone who argues differently is greeted with cynical laughter. Recent events, like the EU Referendum and the Westminster terrorist attack have proved how wrong this is.

Many of the politicians who fought for Brexit took a huge risk.  Boris Johnson took the  biggest gamble of his life to fight for the rights of ordinary people, so much so that his father believed he had ruined his career. Continue reading
