The GMB Boris car crash interview of Susanna Reid and blundering Ben

Yesterday’s interview with Boris Johnson was a trainwreck for Susanna Reid and Ben Shepherd, they got every fact wrong. Come back Piers Morgan, unlike Susanna, he researches his interviews first. Fancy not looking up the meaning of mugwump!Boris clearly appalled at the level of intellect of Reid/Ben, turned to satire, but bemused Reid couldn’t tell the difference. It was all about the interviewers trying to look good, they made inaccurate statements then rushed on, clearly not interested in the answers. Continue reading

May isn’t clean Brexit. She is hard Remain.

There is no doubt whatsoever that Theresa May will win the next general election.  To be honest,   it shouldn’t be called an election.   Walkover, done deal, absolute certainty are the words that spring to mind. 

As a life long Tory, I should be glad, but for the dishonesty of the present leader.  Whatever I say will not prevent a Tory win, so these are my concerns. Continue reading

May won’t say what she stands for, won’t debate and avoids all scrutiny

Although Theresa May claims to be “protecting Brexit”,  the strategy of rushing through a snap election should give Brexit voters huge cause for alarm.  She is duplicating the strategy of Harold Wilson in 1975.

Ted Heath rushed us illegally into the EU in 1972, by not calling a Referendum.  Three years later, Harold Wilson apparently set this right, but he turned the Ref. into a vote of confidence for the government  which, like May, he knew he would win.  He then took advantage of the innocent public by binding us further into the EU.

Outstanding generous speech by May sets the standard for EU negotiations

After today’s Brexit speech from Theresa May, some Remoaners were complaining.  I had just explained that there is a big difference between a referendum and a general election.  In the EU Ref., Leave and Remain were not competing to form a government.  The only purpose of any referendum is to get a straight answer to a straight question,  in this case, Should we leave the EU?may2Leave and Remain cannot therefore make financial pledges.  They can only make suggestions.  The battlebus ad. was about taking control and the figure quoted on the bus was given as the sum we pay the EU every week.  Let’s give £350M to the NHS was one suggestion how to spend the money.

How we were taken into the EU illegally by Edward Heath

We were taken into the EU illegally, so is our membership even legal now?  An article by writer Vernon Cole explains  PM Edward Heath should have held a Referendum before he signed the treaty that gave away our sovereignty to the EU. Parliament has legal sovereignty, but the people have political sovereignty. edwardheathIn 1972, Heath was afraid to hold a Referendum, because there was huge antipathy to the Common Market at that time. (2 to 1).  So without holding the requisite Referendum,  he signed the European Communities Bill, making us part of the Common Market that later became the EU. Continue reading

The Thirty Years War. Compromise is not an option

It was Sir Bill Cash who after voting to join the EEC in 1975, realised that what was being sold to us as a free trade agreement was actually a transfer of our democratic rights to a European government.  This was  clear from his first glimpse of the Maastricht Treaty. Since that day he has campaigned to protect British freedom. Snide John Major described him as “obsessive, driven and on Europe, frankly a bore.”sirbillcashOn June 5th, 1975, a Referendum to save our rights failed, because it was turned into a vote of confidence against the Government.  John Major said to Bill Cash “Well Bill, it’s all over now.”  Bill Cash replied: “No, Prime Minister, it’s only just begun.” Continue reading
