Brexiteer MPs may be outnumbered but on the field of battle they are worth 10,000 men. Each

Brexiteers are heavily outnumbered in Parliament and in the government, but so principled and brave are the politicians fighting for us, with such outstanding fighting spirit, I believe there is no doubt that Brexit, as we voted for it, will prevail.

 

 

 

 

I have been deeply moved to see politicians whom I knew little about fight like tigers for democracy, social justice and the rights of ordinary people.  This is what politics is supposed to be about.  It is inspiring stuff and restores my faith in politicians. Continue reading

Bully boy Norris tells Boris the 1922 Committee in charge, shut it or they will sack you

In an ugly display of fascist style behaviour, Steven Norris and Philip Hammond ganged up on Boris Johnson yesterday, threatening him with the sack if he didn’t stay silent over Brexit.

Bully boy Norris even said the 1922 Committee would end Boris’s career! Oh are they running the country and Brexit,  Steve, I didn’t realise!   In my innocence, I thought that the EU Referendum was the chance of voters to decide whether we left or stayed in the EU!  We were told, in Parliament, by the then PM our decision would be final.  But it’s the 1922 committee running May and making the decisions, is it.   Forgive me, my mistake!  Continue reading

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.
