When will the Tories realise that the EU is waiting for the UK to actually use Article 16 of the trade agreement? After all, the government has been threatening to do so almost from the moment it signed the treaty in the first place. And now, the Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has circled back around… Continue reading The next chapter of the Tories’ Northern Ireland squabble with the EU.
We could see this coming. Let’s just be totally clear about that. We could see something like this coming. And it was always going to be something like this that opened many people’s eyes to the fact that all the vaunted and wonderful benefits of Brexit were no more than a lot of hot air.… Continue reading This fuel shortage is not just because of Brexit; it’s because of the inherent shortcomings of this Prime Minister.
We have yet another example given to us that Boris Johnson clearly does not think that the rules apply to him. Not even those placed on him by a wedding vow. His history of extramarital relationships is already known but we can add another to the list from over the years. Jennifer Acuri has added… Continue reading How much is too much for the Conservatives?
Johnson is too flatfooted to be an effective Prime Minister. How much more are Brexit and Conservative voters willing to take? Yet again, Boris Johnson has shown he is not willing to take the required action early enough to stay on top of this pandemic. Mere hours after proclaiming in the face of overwhelming evidence… Continue reading A Week in Review: 3rd- 9th January
Endless Carping?! I won’t say I was astonished by Jacob Rees-Mogg’s saying that people should stop complaining about the shortage of coronavirus tests and everyone should be praising the system instead as a ‘phenomenal success’. Apparently, everyone should heap praise on the government for having system in place at all, and ignore all the flaws… Continue reading This government is out of touch and totally incompetent.
So, we now have a Prime Minister who has been found by the highest court in the land to have done something unlawful but doesn't care. He demonstrated that this week as Parliament reconvened after the Supreme Court's ruling on Tuesday. His entire performance at the despatch box was that of a petulant arrogant child… Continue reading Having Boris Johnson as Prime Minister is a national embarrassment. He needs to be shown the door.
I'm sorry, what?! That is ludicrous, even more so the reasons they've given for doing it. Johnson and his government are insisting this is to do with the domestic agenda and not Brexit, which is so much bullshit I don't know where to start shovelling. This is clearly about trying to steamroller a version, any… Continue reading So, to return sovereignty and democracy to the UK, we have to suspend the democratic body?
Michael Gove has said in the last couple of days that the EU is refusing to negotiate with the UK. Well, duh! From their point of view the negotiation has already taken place and a deal agreed. They've also said repeatedly the Withdrawal Agreement is not open to renegotiation so the matter is closed. There… Continue reading Why do Brexiteers think the EU owe us anything?
Well, we're down to the last two runners in the Conservative race to Number 10. And does anyone honestly care anymore? The whole thing is as farcical as the EU referendum, the 2017 general election and basically anything major that has happened in British politics for the last two and a half years. We have… Continue reading Is the country headed for complete disaster?
And here we go again. We were supposed to have moved passed the incessant squabbling and infighting amongst the Conservatives and finally agreed on a direction to try and steer Brexit towards. But no. We're back where we were, with no clear plan moving forward, the government in crisis, the Conservative Party close to stamping… Continue reading The Brexit Chaos: What the hell is going on?
