Labour is eating itself up over Brexit

Tories can see Labour is eating itself up over Brexit, but it took the brutal analysis of an ex Labour MP to really cut them down to size. 

Quote of the week: Ex-Labour MP Tom Harris mocks his party’s decision to vote against the EU (Withdrawal) Bill yesterday. 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.

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

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.

Corbyn’s new “Trump” media strategy is already imploding

It didn’t get off to a good start. The London Standard reported that Corbyn’s new media strategy is dropping the defensive mode that got them nowhere and doing a Trump!barlettThe informal tagline, they say is “Let Corbyn be Corbyn!”  Please God No!  Couldn’t the masterminds behind the strategy do better than to recyle the old chestnut  “Let Bartlett be Bartlett” from the West Wing?   Continue reading

Boris’s “gaffes” are not gaffes. Truth is the only way to change the world.

Anyone who accuses our Foreign Secretary of “gaffes” should think again.  The chances of Boris Johnson going native at the Foreign Office are zero.  Boris has the courage to tell the truth, and we are so used to seeing our politicians mouth platitudes, maybe we have lost the ability to see the value of the truth when we hear it.borisaleppoMay shouted and screamed because Boris “made a gaffe” and levelled with the Saudis over Yemen.   He had already explained in Parliament that concerns about the Saudis using undue force were being investigated.   He then firmly laid it on the line with the Saudis.  The result was that Britain received an assurance from the Saudis they would never use barrel bombs again.  They also told Mrs. May they found Boris Johnson charming and appreciated his candour.
