Brexit is not a walk in the park

Brexit - is it a walk in the park?

Last week, the mysterious master of the mayhem emanating from Downing Street, Dominic Cummings, was recorded as saying “Brexit is a walk in the park”. The next day he was challenged about that and was recorded as saying “Who said it was like a walk in the park?” The journalist said “You, Mr Cummings” to which Dangerous Dominic merely replied “No”. Either the chief adviser to Boris has an abysmal memory (which is not suitable for someone advising at such a high level), or he lied. Fibbing is not new to Number Ten or Boris. We should not be surprised. However, in spite of the entire nation knowing that Bonking Boris has a strange relationship with the truth, he still enjoys widespread support. Millions of people appear to think he …

A supreme example of Brexit nonsense again this week

The Supreme Court London

I never thought I would need to write this. However, I have to say that I now realise that the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom is biased. In deciding that Bonkers Boris had prorogued parliament illegally, Lady Hale and her judicial chums exhibited complete and undeniable bias. The Supreme Court judges were clearly biased in favour of the rule of law. They were also biased in favour of Governments having to abide by that law. Plus, the judges were obviously biased in support of the sovereignty of parliament. Yet, the outcry against the “undemocratic” judgement and the totally arrogant “strong disagreement” with the ruling by Boris the Bonker is amazing. The very people who voted “leave” in order to “restore the sovereignty of our parliament” are the ones who …

Another chaotic week in Brexit Land

Boris Johnson is happy to speak outdoors against a noisy backdrop

Bonkers Boris batted a blinder this week. The media went crazy, saying how he had been deliberately snubbed and humiliated by the Prime Minister of Luxembourg. Cabinet ministers lined-up to say how badly the UK had been treated. It all played into the hands of Boris because it allowed a cynical “us” versus “them” narrative. It enabled Boris the Bonker’s mates to tell us “this is why we need to get out of the EU”. However, we need to take it all with a megadose of salt. Remember, apart from a couple of small examples, the bulk of the British media is “pro Brexit”. So you don’t always get the exact story. Here’s what happened. Several days before the visit to Luxembourg various teams at Number Ten would have been …

Boris is a lying, cynical, political opportunist – according to his mate

Boris Johnson and David Cameron before Brexit divided them

Boris Johnson did not lie to the Queen. We know so because he told us he didn’t. Oh, hang on, that might be a lie. After all, he has lied to us many times and doesn’t seem to care about it. So why should we believe him when he says that he told Her Majesty the truth about the need to prorogue Parliament? Add to that, the revelations from his mate David Cameron this weekend where he says in his new 752-page book, “For the Record”, that Boris is a great big fibber. He accuses the Bonker of only siding with Brexit because it would help his career ambitions. “Boris rode the bus round the country, he left the truth at home,” says Mr Cameron. None of this is any …

Brexit chaos ditched in favour of General Election

Boris Johnson in a ditch

Well, where do I begin…? First, it’s probably worth saying that I could well have been wrong all these weeks for which I have been writing my thoughts on Brexit. Instead of deriding our politicians, I need to thank them. They have been doing a tremendous job. They are brilliant at it and I should thank them very much indeed for what they have done. That’s a surprise, isn’t it? But I haven’t yet said what I am thanking them for…! I am tremendously grateful for their stupidity, incompetence and thoughtlessness because they have given me so much to write about. Without the likes of Bonkers Boris, Nutty Nigel or that Joyless Jerk Jacob I’d be stuck. So, I, first of all, want to thank them and all their colleagues …

In the world of Brexit, just who is the most stupid? There’s a long list..!

Anti Brexit March

It has been a rather amazing week, hasn’t it? First, in spite of earlier denials, all of the opposition parties joined together to say they would work as one to defeat “no-deal”. Then, Boris does a u-turn on his previous claims and announces “proroguing” of Parliament. That, in turn, led to mass protests up and down the country. And yesterday, the Government was doing the rounds of the TV and radio studios to let it be known that even if Parliament did agree on legislation to prevent “no-deal”, they would probably not take it to the Queen for Royal Assent and therefore the “will of the politicians” would not become law. As if that were not enough, the chief adviser to Boris sacked someone working for the Chancellor, Sajid Javid. …

Stormy times ahead for Government’s Brexit move

Stormy times ahead for Brexit parliament

Yes, I know it is Thursday, not Monday, but I can hardly let the events of yesterday wait another four days before I talk about them. Besides, I suspect a great deal more is going to happen in the next four days…! In case you missed it yesterday, here’s what happened. Jacob Rees-Mogg went to see Her Majesty in his role as “Lord President of the Privy Council” to advise her that Parliament should be “prorogued”. The Queen, who I imagine at first thought that Moggy was a Palace ghost from the 19th Century, has no choice. So she had to sign the order to stop Parliament for a month. The last time anyone stopped Parliament for this long was back in 1628, and the person who asked for that …

Is Boris crazy, a conman, or a conjuror? More Brexit nonsense…

Brexit Boris the conjuror

It’s been another week where Boris “Trust me I’m a politician” Johnson has never been out of the headlines. He’s clearly trying to create an image as “Action Man”. However, looking at everything he has done in recent weeks he is either more bonkers than I thought, or he is deliberately conning us, or he is a magician distracting us from what is really going on.If you can set aside his buffoonery – such as putting his foot on a table in France because the French President said “it looks like a footstool” – focus on what he has been doing. He has been touring the United Kingdom clearly having found the “magic money tree” that he has always told us never existed. Indeed, I’ve become increasingly convinced he’s a …

Brexit double-talk means all is not what it seems

Brexit not going well sign

This week I expect you heard me laughing. Twice, as I drove up the A34 in the past seven days, I laughed out loud at what I heard on the car radio. The first belly laugh came when Donald Trump announced that the USA would be able to sort out a trade deal with the UK and have it up and running ready for the first day after Brexit had happened. It took the USA six years to organise a deal with its next-door neighbour Canada and the negotiations it started with Thailand in 2006 have yet to be concluded. Plus, there are 16 other trade agreements that the USA has been trying to get going since the 1990s. If Donald Trump thinks he can do one inside the next …

Brexit coincidences line up to prevent “no-deal” from happening

Brexit coincidence

Don’t tell me it’s a coincidence that the day the Chancellor of the Exchequer visits the HQ of the National Grid that the lights went out across Britain. We should be told if he said: “What does this button do?” just before much of the nation was plunged into darkness on Friday evening due to two power stations simultaneously being taken offline. The cynics amongst us might point to the fact that this unique nationwide event became the “splash” headline across TV and radio, knocking the dreadful economic news off from the top spot. So, in case you did miss it, this week we discovered that the British economy shrank in the past three months – the first time it has done that in almost a decade. The indicators are …
