Black cab drivers would spit on the grave of George Osborne, Sarah Sands

Ex Standard Editor Sarah Sands writes in the paper that black cab drivers find Theresa May sexy.  A London MP gloats that to BC drivers,  the PM is a heroine to cabbies.   Not for much longer matey!Black cab drivers are incredibly quick on the uptake.  Already the word is getting around, that far from being for Brexit, as most black cab drivers are, May is a Remainer, who is desperate for things to stay the same.  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.

Sir Bill Cash is right, in real terms the EU owes us approx. £1.5 Trillion if you include war debt

This is one of the letters in today’s Times.  This dreadful article by David Aaronovitch is not worth reading, but one of the replies to it is.

“Yes, but once again it takes Nigel Farage to tell it how it is, and then they reel at the suggestion that they are acting like the Mafia. Problem is it is true. Bill Cash is right, in real terms the EU owes us approximatey £1.5 Trillion if you include war debt. Continue reading

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

Boris Johnson zips over to Warsaw to support Poles over possible POLEXIT

Polish people are known for their heroism, and no British politician knows more about their outstanding war record than our Foreign Secretary. So understandably Boris Johnson zoomed over to Poland to give support to such a valued ally as soon as it became clear that Poland also is considering giving up EU membership.  He will then vist the Ukraine with the Polish FM.  borispoland7The leader of the country’s ruling party, Jarosław Kaczyński, said the Polish eurocrat,  Donald Tusk,  “cannot under any circumstances count on our support” for a second term as the head of the influential Brussels body.

Slapdown from Boris when the EU tries to call him out for describing Brexit as Liberation!

In Munich, Boris Johnson described Brexit as “our liberation” and was immediately jumped on by a Swedish MEP, who called him out for his choice of words!borismunichBoris stoutly rejected the criticism, saying he was “reclaiming the English language” and he intended to carry on using the phrase!  The EU is taking more and more power from its members.
