Our Parliament has a majority of modern-day quislings as MPs and they are about to engineer the biggest betrayal of them all

January 14, 2019 Leave a comment

img_2445As expected weeks and months ago, based on what has now become this Government’s oh-so-reliable behaviour patterns and pretty much guaranteed form, we today see Theresa May’s scare-game entering what some of us do hope will be its final death throws, but alas, probably just another stage before we see even more.

Back in the Autumn, there were many of us out here in the real world who still hoped that there were enough MPs left in this Parliament actually prepared to put duty the People above self-interest. Not just tell us that is what they will do.

Yet on the Eve of what may in time turn out to be one of the greatest Parliamentary decisions which has an impact right across the British way of life, it appears that the a baseline of doing what is actually right on behalf of the whole Electorate is now a quality and driver which is absent within the make-up of our MPs, save for what is clearly a remarkably small number and perhaps no more than just a few.

Perhaps the most frightening fact about all of the Machiavellian behaviour, manipulation and the flurry of ideas which are repeatedly being sold as the reinvention of the wheel – in so far as a ‘Brexit deal’ is concerned, is the reality that all this rubbish is having the effect of making Theresa May’s claim to have negotiated what the British People Voted for, look almost credible in a way which it would never do so, if such comparisons had never been born.

Yes, we should take very seriously the prospect that there is a strategy at work behind all of this. Because being bullied by fear as we were in the run up to the Referendum has been seriously overused by the Establishment and this Government, and it has required them to develop their web of deceit in order to make what is in effect one giant lie look highly plausible when compared to what appear to be all other forms.

What none of us should take seriously is the idea, suggestion or otherwise, that leaving the EU without ‘a deal’ is anything less than what the British People actually voted for. And that furthermore, that it will disadvantage the UK in anything other than the short and therefore immediate term – IF people should be put in charge who actually believe in the UK and what real opportunity is there to be used for.

Be under no illusion.

Theresa May’s ‘deal’ was, is not and never will be the Brexit that the British People Voted for.

This is a deal which if passed tomorrow or even in a few days or few weeks time will simply tie us back into a relationship which will always be one sided in terms of benefits to the EU. It is not ‘leaving’.

It is Brexit in name only with not even a meaningful tweak added since the point when anyone with any common sense realised that under May’s leadership, Brexit was never going to be the end result, no matter what she says or predicts as being yet to come.

But the ‘solutions’ put on offer by others, the ‘would be kings & queens’, such as Norway, Canada +++, Switzerland, the inappropriately named ‘People’s Vote’ or even a forced General Election offer nothing better in themselves. They do not even offer a direction of travel towards the position of UK Independence of the EU, whish is what the majority of British People instructed and therefore compelled our Parliament and successive Governments to deliver as the end result. To do whatever necessary to ensure that is what the UK becomes.

The relationship that these sell-out MPs and the Establishment has with the EU would perhaps be best viewed as one they would have as drunks with a pub landlord. One where the first sip of the drink tasted undeniably good, but then the damage being done took place without conscious intervention, both at the time they knew they were drinking and over the longer term when they didn’t realise they were.

The drinkers were blasé about the real impact as they got high in an unreal world that they were all the time paying for, whilst that landlord kept on supplying them with more.

The sensible drinker in such a pub would hear the inner voice when it says ‘it’s time to leave’, ‘let’s get away from here and go home’, ‘we need to get sober’, ‘we don’t need anymore’; leave promptly and behind them close the door.

But the Remainers instead stood up at the bar and demanded a deal to leave, something that the landlord was only too happy to oblige with, knowing well that as drunks the Remainers would voluntarily and willingly subjugate themselves, just so they could come back, get shitfaced all over again and then place themselves in a situation where they would just give away even more.

No, not many people see the truth in any of this. But that is why we use metaphors and especially so when we are far too close to reality to understand what’s going on around us, at a critical moment in our history when knowing the truth about what these so-called representatives of the people are actually doing on their own behalf is vital, because they are telling us and letting many of us believe that its for us all.

There is nothing beneficial for the UK or our People taking place in this Parliament.

The majority of our MPs are sold out either directly to the EU or indirectly via misplaced loyalty to the people who are leading them – and therefore all of us, over a very steep edge.

Whether deliberate or by accident, they are all modern-day quislings. They are aiding a foreign power in the guise of the EU to take control over us all, step-by-step, lie-by-lie, rule-by-rule. And they are content to do so as they believe that their roles in Parliament will continue to be assured, knowing that they are selling out their own People and over 300 years of Democracy in order to facilitate any policy that will allow them to do so.

Anything other than leaving the EU without a foolish and unnecessary ‘deal’ – no matter what steps are now taken to bring it about – will be a complete betrayal of the British People.

It is not what we the British People Voted for.

And from any Elected Representative, we have the right to expect a whole lot more.

Rename Remain ‘informed consent’ or anything else you’d like to try to overturn Brexit. The democratic decision to Leave has not yet been delivered and that’s the truth your obfuscation can never deny

December 4, 2018 Leave a comment

Culturally, perhaps one of our worst pastimes of the day is the habit of trying to make everyone else wrong.

Whilst the clearest manifestation of this behavioural menace is that of the blame culture, it is the adoption of this approach as the standard tactic by Remainers in their continuing efforts to overturn Brexit where its presence is most clearly and most dangerously felt.

I have met and spoken at length with many people and friends who are Remainers. Individuals and professionals who are intelligent, sensible and have the wherewithal to steer their way through the day-to-day minefield which is the voter end of the political spectrum – just as long as the politicians are being honest and the truth isn’t actually being denied.

What They all have in common is that none of them have been able to provide genuine reason for Remaining a Member of the EU other than some form of personal advantage, such as banking or what their employer does, or it simply being most often the case that they hate notified change and they want to maintain the status quo.

It is clear that the vitriol which drives the Remain faction is based upon a sense of loss of control, the sense of personal cost or just the sense from fear of change.

There is nothing tangible about benefits to the wider community, the interests of anyone beyond those they care about or the surfacing of any argument which indicates that Remaining a Member of the EU is a genuine solution to all the ills around us – it being the case that since June 2016, this is what we have been repeatedly told.

So it is the media support and manipulation through communication and the disingenuous behaviour of our Politicians which form the basis of this sell-out of our Sovereignty to an accumulation of different foreign shores. And when there is no real substance to anything that they are telling us or even saying, it comes as little wonder that so many of their messages and soundbites are so freely susceptible to change.

The big problem with all of this is that Leaving the EU properly offers UK People and Businesses a clearly discernible difference to everything that we have for over 40 years experienced and to that which we are still being drip-fed and directly told.

But a real Brexit as yet hasn’t been delivered. This despite the fact that the objective was set in stone as a democratic instruction. It was given by the People, by a majority and in direct response to the binary choice which was binding – as the same Politicians who are now trying to commit us to the EU, convinced us before that historic European Referendum and underlined their very clearly in bold.

So no matter how much effort is spent on trying to repackage the same old story, it is clear that the same old lack of substance Remains.

This whole plan is still about selling out the UK to a foreign power. One driven by an autocracy that wants to use the UK as a resource for nothing more than its own empire building, doesn’t care about democracy in the UK or the people or businesses within it. Yet it will do everything within its power to sell the idea that we cannot live without the influence and control of 27 other countries and that Remaining is the only way that we can ever be safe, secure and feel prosperous, when the truth is quite the opposite.

Put in the words of one of the World’s most influential statesman, ‘You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time*’.

So go ahead. Rename Remain ‘informed consent’ or anything else you’d like to try to overturn Brexit.

The democratic decision to Leave has not yet been delivered and that’s the truth your obfuscation can never deny.

Meglamaniac May ignores her Remainer-in-Chiefs; the Cabinet wont act because they all want to be PM and all who could stop this madness are prepared to leave her fate to a Parliamentary Vote – irrespective of what new hell this chain of irresponsibility will unleash

May Halo 2

We all love a parliamentary parody, but not when it has actually become real life and instead of seeing a script acted out, we are witnessing the daily evolution of the real thing.

Make no mistake. The story we are now seeing unfolding bears no similarity to what the principle of democracy and the will of the people was ever supposed to be about.

The lunatics have taken over the asylum and the impact of everything that they are now doing is not going to be without significant cost to us all, in the many ways that the Brexit charade delivers its range of consequences and fall-out.

We see a full Cabinet of Ministers propagating the myths of the current Prime Ministers making, just so they can keep their hand in when it comes to the ‘expected’ pool of choices when the potentially imminent Conservative Leadership Contest begins.

We see Remainers so hell-bent on overturning the decision of the People which they took so personally, that they now have to prove that the majority of the British People were wrong. They are prepared to destroy democracy by pushing for a second Vote, when through the actions of their own camp, the Country has not even delivered upon the first.

We see Brexiteers still so fixated on their own idea of what Brexit should look like, that they have themselves forgotten what it was that the British People have voted for. They are overlooking the strength in numbers that comes from recognising and working on the democratic principle of commonality. By doing so, they have surrendered their own strength to the misunderstanding and mistrust that Remain continue to sew, which Brexiteer unity would quickly push aside.

An at the top of the tree, we have a Remain-obsessed Prime Minister who has become so fixated with the belief in her own hype, that she is now even ignoring the advice of her own Remain-obsessed Civil Servants. She is prepared to withhold Legal Advice to Parliament so that she can single-handedly ensure that her closer union with Europe, sold as Brexit can be coercively pushed through Parliament and British Democracy not just now, but for ever then be denied.

What should perhaps be most worrying, is that most of the MP’s in Westminster know that we are riding the cusp of a constitutional wave which has the potential to deliver changes for the UK which in any form they now come will be very sinister.

The status quo has now been cracked right down the middle and even staying exactly where we are would not resemble anything like the 22nd of June 2016 – in terms of what some still see as an option labelled ‘Remain’.

This obsession with being seen to keep ones hands clean or simply to save ones job means that inaction is continuing to rule the day.

Like the many Theresa May related events which have materialised before, Conservatives with the ability to precipitate change are waiting to see what happens.

They are ignoring the fact that they are going around in circles and are likely to find themselves giving May yet another chance just as soon as she steps out of the Voting Lobby next Tuesday after the ‘first vote’ hits the floor, puts out the begging bowl and blithely asks them ‘Please MP’s, can I have some more?’

Labour don’t come out of this any better. And their obsession with getting into Government at any cost, aided by the inaction of the Conservatives on both front and back benches may very soon come to pass.

By taking the easy option and waiting for the ‘meaningful vote’ to take place on December 11th, all of our MP’s are setting themselves up for a very difficult and possibly monumental task.

Whether Theresa May decides to go back to the Country, the Remainers push for another Referendum which puts democracy firmly in the past, the Government falls and with the DUP ‘walking the floor’, or Jeremy Corbyn and a rainbow coalition walk right in to No.10 before Christmas, it is clear that Parliament now has no discernable power or direction, nor the ability to make any decisions which have legitimate longevity and as such the surety to even last.

This free-for-all of ‘my idea is best’ and ‘I will do whatever I can to make everyone else wrong’ is actually beyond parody. In fact, it is becoming a real-life tragedy.

Whilst MP’s have been doing shocking things for a very long time, the transparency that the Internet and age of Social Media has brought means that their idea of what responsibility looks like is already having a far-reaching impact.

It is now action and not more words the People are looking for before there is even the chance that some faith in our Parliamentary system could even begin to be restored.

If MP’s seriously want to regain their credibility, they must do whatever necessary to stop the Theresa May show right now.

The best thing for us all will be an immediate change in Conservative Leadership, to someone who is not self-obsessed with the idea that getting into No.10 is all being in politics has ever been about.

Someone who can look all the Remain hyperbole in the eye, face it and the ever-controlling EU down and then push through a process to Leave which works for all of us, guarantees the UK its Sovereignty and freedom, and outs the ridiculous idea that anything even remotely Remainish is going to be of genuine benefit to anyone or any home-based business in the UK.

 

 

 

 

28 different people will always have and need a different relationship with money. So why would the UK be any different when it comes to the economy and 27 Countries in the EU?

Everything we perceive is relative. We often forget to see it that way. Or, we simply lose the grasp on individual perspective when we could and should be applying its use to many other things.

In everyday life, the consequences are often played out in our misunderstanding of others, just because we overlook the opportunity to at least try empathising and seeing a situation from the point of being stood in someone else’s shoes.

Regrettably, the relativity between one situation which appears materially different from another is much easier to overlook, even though once the similarities are thought through, the same principles are often easy to apply.

How this Government and the Remain contingent are treating our relationship with the EU is sadly no different.

It is regrettably too apparent that the care and consideration, coupled with the intelligence and common sense that fuel an objective reality for the future of this Country are in this case being dangerously denied.

Economics is the topic of the day for the Government’s denial over the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement.

We see Phillip Hammond being wheeled out as part of May’s life support, knowing that like the coterie of other fear-driven Ministers that surround her, in the Prime Ministers immediate future is where their own legacies and political destiny will permanently lie.

Like one person who earns differently to another, has different family commitments and needs, has different resources handed down, lives in a different place, has different tastes and has a different culture and approach to spending, the individuality of our approach to economics relates to what we have, what we are, what we can get and what our independent priorities are – or yes, are allowed to be.

It’s part of how we are defined, how we survive and is inescapable as a key ingredient of how within a world ruled by money, we can be flexible enough to go forward and survive.

Countries are no different. In fact they are far more complex and have an ongoing need to be able to respond malleably to the needs of the markets in which they operate, to the needs of the majority of everyday businesses which operate within them and above all, to whatever might be the requirements generated by their own population – i.e. their own domestic need.

If you have need of any example to illustrate how removing economic flexibility can go wrong when you have the idea that synchronising your economic system with other Countries is the place where you belong, you only need look at the cases of the EU Members Greece and Italy to get a very good idea of how the idea of harmonising economics between different Countries can go dangerously wrong.

We are fortunate that we were able to leave the ERM at that point that we did in the 1990’s when the Conservative Party was last on a downward trajectory after getting so much about its responsibilities to the Electorate so wrong. It could otherwise easily have been the UK today which suffering so catastrophically, as we would be unable to make our own rules on money and be ruled completely by the will of 27 other Countries when it came to everything financially that we did.

Put simply, we would already be the EU’s bitch, and if Theresa May is allowed to continue with her treacherous sell-out, that’s exactly where each and every part of our Country is going to be.

The scare stories being propagated by Ministers only interested in saving their big jobs and their own skins are a travesty of misinformation and bear no relation to the reality that it is only when you have control over the choices that you make, that you are fully equipped to adapt to each and every battle, and reach a position where as a Country, we can economically win.

There are already many Countries who want to do business with us, whilst remaining shackled under Theresa May’s Welched Brexit ‘deal’, will only ensure that all these massive opportunities will very quickly end up in the bin.

We must not be in fear of the EU. They have much more to lose by working against us, and everything to gain fro working with the UK to facilitate a genuine process for us to Leave, and then build a relationship with us which facilitates the same kind of access to each others markets that everyone but the EU itself wants and knows we can keep open – what is for all of us very much the ‘win-win’.

Growth and prosperity are only there for us as a Country to enjoy if we actually have and maintain control over them.

It will not be until we have recovered and used that Great British step into the unplanned unknown and broken all ties with the EU that we will again taste the real opportunities that meet and are open to our culture.

It is here that we will be able to achieve without restriction in our own markets, across the whole World including Europe, and be on a pathway to once again as a Nation being proud of who we are and appreciative that we are capable of so much more.

The Brexit Withdrawal Agreement ‘Head-to-Head’: If we really must have May and Corbyn selling nothing which will be of use to anyone PLEASE at least remove the bloody script!

November 27, 2018 Leave a comment

May Corbyn Debate

Despite Sky TV’s continuing Campaign to make Leaders Debates a common fixture for all General Election Campaigns, I like many others am less than convinced that this further attempt at Americanising British Politics will deliver anything good.

Providing such a platform with politics working as it is today is showmanship at best. It comes at a time when we are suffering a drought of Politicians in positions of power who really care, giving them yet another way to provide us with only more of the same grandstanding is a place that probably most of us would rather not go.

With this in mind, you will probably not be surprised that I do not see the point in disrupting a Sunday evening viewing schedule – particularly when the Final of this year’s I’m a Celebrity Final is on, just to give Theresa May the opportunity to trying selling something in words that she will no doubt be able to choose – and especially so when the product on offer is oh so very very wrong.

Never mind the rather strange question which lays across the whole idea and relates to the Prime Minister’s reluctance to go near anything which resembled a debate in real time during her flawed 2017 General Election Campaign. The whole pretence that she is now out there to sell her idea gives the lie to the whole exercise for no more reason than it demonstrates that she hasn’t actually listened to anyone and just intends to convince everyone that her ideas are somehow right.

So if we really must be subjected to this kind of peak-time-viewing-charade, the least the TV Companies could do is make the whole process interesting.

How about removing the entire script and leveraging something along the lines of a real Question Time?

The questions could be chosen from a random selection by the public. But the show itself could be compared by a Chair who can follow up and introduce supplementary questions. It could all be done in a way that could really make the idea that testing the people who wish to demonstrate their ability to lead has some credibility. It would certainly give us an insight into whether outside the realm of the pre-prepared and stage-managed, May’s or Corbyn’s politics and metal really is so very strong?

At one end of the spectrum and without any intentional bias towards the offerings of the BBC, we could perhaps give the chair to Andrew Neil, who is only disliked by the people whose ideas are easily offended or upended and as such want to brand the questioner as the one who has got their policy wrong.

Otherwise someone like the up and coming Emma Barnett, who is highly promising as a political interrogator and has the same ability to press the right keys to get these two singing a very different and unorchestrated song.

Either of these two Presenters or someone skilled and unintimidated like them would soon begin to uncover the truths that people really need to hear about May’s Welched Brexit and Corbyn’s dangerous alternative reality.

And if this really has to go on TV, why shouldn’t the audience be treated to something they actually need?

In the absence of any structured and open disclosure on the reality of what it will be to Leave without an unnecessary deal and take control of our own destiny, this is likely to be the only way that a genuine story from either of these two on TV is ever likely to evolve.
