Brexit Is Finished.

Recommended Posts

The Slog says it better than I can:

Quote

If you want a genuine reflection of reality (and you have a television set) then the only place you will find it in Britain is during the commercial breaks.

Laugh if you like. But pay heed to the evidence.

The reality of the contemporary United Kingdom is of a Conservative Government (in Coalition and on its own) and two sets of ineffective Labour Opposition that have failed to live up to any realistic vision of effective, fair, democratic Rule of Law applied to the treatment of well-meaning contrarians, clear majorities, personal liberty, free speech and the provision of a decent standard of education, health, safety and living to all our demographics and cultures.

Economic and welfare policies have spectacularly failed to get within light years of their targets, and are opposed by a Party whose tired old ideas have failed before. Both major Parties are strangulated by archaic, dis-proven ideologies, and use a positively prehistoric method of indirect representative election to the legislature. They do this purely because they know that any well-constructed alternative would be their death-knell.

But go to the commercial breaks, and there you will find products and services developed to deal (albeit inappropriately) with the real world that these two behemoths have produced. A world in which planned governance has been evaded in return for power: financial regulation, planned retirement welfare, real job creation, reversing the slide in manufacturing, being honest about currency values, media law-breaking, corporate tax evasion, employment life-balance, multicultural problems, blatant ballot rigging, contempt for free speech, misogyny, racist narcissism, lawless litigation and all the other features of globalist corporatism that make it the worst possible system to tackle the myriad problems facing all the inhabitants of Planet Earth.

You will see, endlessly to the point of bored nausea and beyond:

* Loan sharks offering usury lending to get people through to payday.

* Dozens of 3rd World charities begging for “just £5 a month”.

* Equity Release from properties older citizens can’t sell and can’t afford.

* Direct response ads for gold by post and online.

* Lotteries and every other form of desperation gambling.

* Hard-sell campaigns by lawyers offering to screw everyone on your behalf.

No level of genius is required to see what abject failure by the politico-corporacratic class all this reflects. ‘Jobs’ that are trumpeted, but don’t support families. A chronic lack of investment and broad scale corruption in 3rd world government that our well-meaning ‘aid’ budgets only encourage. The embezzlement of 3.43 million State pensions without due notice or fairness. Lies about the solvency and spending power of currencies, when smart people of every age and both genders can see with their own eyes levels of inflation that make a mockery of official statistics. The sort of social alienation which, when confronted with media that seem to recognise only greed as a form of achievement, turns to gambling and drink. And a culture that increasingly refuses, on an individual level, to accept any responsibility at all when something bad happens.

To bring it all back to Brexit (and God knows, I wish with every sinew and brain synapse we didn’t have to) the final obscenity of the farce explodes all over the audience when Theresa May tells victims of austerity “there is no such thing as a money tree” – and then blithely hands over £39 billion to an unscrupulous bunch of demagogues in Brussels….quite needlessly, and for nothing in return.

And today we have another attempt to destroy or prolong the agony of a drawn out Brexit with the two head numpties shackling together a deal that benefits only their parties survival and sells us down the river.

Newport West by-election being held today . Hope the people give Parliament a clear message on Brexit. With eleven candidates standing it will be interesting to see how the voting splits - no doubt to the advantage of the two main parties.

After dozens of indicative votes that only gained the support of a handful of MPs, the House of Commons has finally voted in favour of the so-called “Narnia amendment” to the Brexit plan.

This amendment allows for MPs, instead of filing into either of the division lobbies to vote “Aye” or “Nay” to the proposal on offer, to go through the back of a wardrobe and out into a magical world where anything, no matter how contradictory, is possible.

However, they were warned to stay clear of the so-called Ice Queen whose touch is so cold it can drain the life out of any living thing, prompting one back-bencher to say “Bloody hell, Theresa May’s there already?”

Instead, they should put their trust in Boslan, a rather shaggy and unkempt lion who frequently lays down his own political life only to confound expectations by somehow coming back a short while later.

However, when MPs tried to put the plan into action, they found the wardrobe already full of Lib Dems, who acidly told them “Find your own closet, dearie, this one’s full…”

Newport West 2018 by-election result

Ruth Jones (Labour) - 9,308 votes

Matthew Evans (Conservative) - 7,357 votes

Neil Hamilton (UKIP) - 2,023 votes

Jonathan Clark (Plaid Cymru) - 1,185 votes

Ryan Jones (Liberal Democrats) - 1,088 votes

Amelia Womack (Green Party) - 924 votes

June Davies (Renew) - 879 votes

Richard Suchorzewski (Abolish the Welsh Assembly Party) - 205 votes

Ian McLean (SDP) - 202 votes

Philip Taylor (Democrats and Veterans) - 185 votes

Hugh Nicklin (For Britain) - 159 votes

Turnout was down 30% on the last election. In reality, nobody wanted to vote for Corbyn's Labour, Theresa May's Conservatives or for Neil Hamilton's UKIP. People can't be bothered to get off their arse and vote - should be made compulsory with an option to abstain. The present voting system suits the two major parties and nothing will change toy town politics. The public need to get serious.

The agony of Brexit goes on. possibly another year to drag it out. May needs to just get up and walk away. The EU wont be happy till they have milked us dry and decide our destiny.

Brexit is fast turning into a Dog’s Breakfast and though I don’t have a lot of sympathy for Mother Theresa, I do feel that that villainous quartet of Barnier, Junker, Macron and Tusk have shown her very little mercy in these last few days.

With the annual May Fair due to arrive in town very shortly, I’d like to suggest that the operators rig up an extra stall, which I think would prove extremely popular with the crowds. It could be one of those old-fashioned shooting galleries with air rifles and lead pellets and there would only be 4 targets to hit to win a major prize: cut-out coloured tin profiles of the arch-villains of Brussels.

Roll up, roll up!

She wanted no lusted after the post of Prime Minister apparently since her Uni days when she proudly announced she would be PM one day - heavy is the cross and all that. Nobody knows just how many people she had to stab to get that job. They are all as bad as each other.

Recently some members of the Parachute Regt have been taken to task by their bosses , MPs and certain newspapers for apparently  using Corbyns face as a target whilst they were target shooting on the Range ...........perhaps somebody else would be more acceptable ? So Gridknocker you may be on a winner .

The parcel has been passed to the EU and they are going to decide the fate of the UK as planned. Hands in our pockets again, economic control over our lives. Just hope the remainers are keen to rally to a call to the EU army - especially the youngsters when conscripted to wage war in Africa.
