Foreign diplomats are lining up to meet the bad boy of British politics

They may be snotty in public, but secretly, European diplomats are lining up to meet the bad boy of British politics on his first official trip to the capital this week. The real reason the dinner for the 28 member states was cancelled is because they want to avoid any appearance of Brexit discussions before the process is triggered. borisGQ2It is Boris’s journalism that has them all rigid with fascinated horror. He called George W Bush a cross-eyed Texan war monger and won the Spectator prize for the dirtiest political limerick that rhymed “Ankara” with “wankerer”. These are milder examples of Boris’s outrageously rude but wildly lucrative style. Continue reading

An outraged Lord Sugar says don’t vote for Sadiq Khan

Lord Alan Sugar, as well as a brilliantly astute businessman is known as a philanthropist, who mentors and finances hardworking talent. He is trending on twitter right now,  his comments on Sadiq Khan, the Labour Mayoral hopeful, in the Sunday Times already a sensation.  Below, the famously blunt Lord Sugar gives the unvarnished truth about Khan. lordsugar“I joined Labour in 1997 because it had shown it could be trusted with the economy. Tony Blair and Gordon Brown believed in a strong private sector. They knew you could afford to pay for good schools and a decent NHS only if you let businesses get on with delivering jobs and growth. Sure, the party had some loony lefties; one of them even became mayor of London. But with that one exception, they weren’t in a position to do any damage. Continue reading

Atma Singh says of Sadiq Khan “He will revert to type”

Respected ex Labour member Atma Singh was adviser to Ken Livingstone on Asian issues from  2001 to 2007.  His article in the  Sunday Times is given below in full.AtmaSinghLet Red Ken be a warning about hard-left mayors and Islamists

The last time I spoke publicly during a mayoral election, it was to blow the whistle on Ken Livingstone.

At this mayoral election I am speaking out again because I fear we are about to make the same mistake with Sadiq Khan. Continue reading

PM thinks we can’t decide on EU Ref without advice from Obama and Hollande? Yes We Can!

So great is the contempt of the Prime Minister for the British people, he thinks we need the advice of foreign Heads of State on the EU Ref.  to tell us what to vote.  Cameron is lining up President Obama, and the French Prez Hollande to frighten us about the horrors that await us if we vote OUT, says Dominic Lawson in the Sunday Times.obamahollandeThe time of Obama and Hollande would be better spent warning us of the dangers of having a war monger, Tony Blair, as the EU Prez. That is the price demanded by the Blairites as the cost of their support over Europe. Continue reading

The brutal truth – the PM has not saved us from “ever closer union” says Dominic Lawson

In today’s Sunday Times,  Dominic Lawson knocks on the head the PM’s claim allows us freedom from “ever closer union”.  At the recent summit, our PM declared ““Ever since we joined, Europe has been on the path to something called ever-closer union. It means a political union. We’ve never liked it. We’ve never wanted it. And today we have permanently carved Britain out of it.”pmmisleadingThis is absolutely not true. The truth is that we have no more protection after the PM’s EU deal than we did before.

Dominic Lawson says: “Most pertinently, is there any judgment by the European Court of Justice (whose rulings on EU law are binding on the British government) which might be reversed — or reversible — as a result of this exemption from the rhetoric of “ever-closer union”? Continue reading

As Mayor, Ken Livingstone caused outrage when he invited terrorist Al Qaradawi to City HallsadiqextremistIt now transpires that according to this morning’s Sunday Times, Sadiq has repeated shared a platform with an extremist Imam, who acted as an al-Qaeda recruiter. The Sunday Times reports:  “The London mayoral race erupted into acrimony as a former aide to Theresa May said Khan lacked “judgment” for attending at least four meetings organised by Stop Political Terror, a group supported by Anwar al-Awlaki.
