Leadership qualities

Much has been made, during the General Election campaign of the fitness of the various Party leaders to hold the post of Prime Minister. In particular, there have beeen questions of the trust worthiness of Boris Johnson both in his public and private life.
It would seem that the news networks, ever on the lookout for scoops and sensationalism wish to unearth previously unknown stains on the characters, as if the public's ideal Premier resembles a whiter than white character. They troll through public utterances from as far back as possible posing previously failed ambition, regardless of reason, as unkept promise.
Johnson should promote his character as a positive. He should cite the example of God's choice for the first king of Israel. God did not choose a man of unblemished character, He chose a known, womanising reprobate with a record of ruthlessness called David. He chose the person best fitted for the job. The British electorate must do the same.

Whilst the Labour Party defends itself against a charge of Antisemiticism, it counters by accusing the Conservatives of 'Islamophobia'.
As I understand it, 'Islamophobia' literally means, fear of Islam (not hatred of Muslims) and I would argue that it would be stupid not to fear Islam. The religion is the cause of most conflicts around the world since the second World War and responsible for the mass migration,today, of people in Burma, China and other places, including from the Middle East to Europe.
This fear of Islam is not helped by its adherents, Muslims, continuing to abide by its seventh century cult traditions, maintained by Mafia like institutions such as apostasy ( the only way out of the mafia was in a coffin) and blasphemy(omerta), both punishable by death.
Recent events at London Bridge and elsewhere demonstrate the need to be watchful of adherents to Islam, a religion capable of misinterpretation. It is true that the majority of Muslims are good people who want to bring up a family peacefully, living in harmony with their fellows but they must understand that their religion gives genuine cause for alarm.

Following the recent London Bridge atrocity there has been much speculation about the effectiveness of trying to rehabilitate jihadists, especially those who have committed and been found guilty of murder. Please, in these discussions, remember that there is no rehabilitation for the victims. No hope for the future. No justice whilst the perpetrators receive every encouragement to live.
The imam at the vigil should be praised for condemning the murderer and his actions as non Islamic.

The Ranch

A short while ago I announced that after five years work, my 6th novel, 'Apsaras III, The Ranch' was finished subject to  editing. It is a story about a retired but wealthy banker meeting twin Thai girls and setting up a refuge for disadvantaged women in southern Thailand. In this, the third story in the series, Jack Benson, the banker, finds a private members club, 'The Ranch', operating nearby using trafficked women and youngsters. 'The Ranch', he learns, is patronised by the rich and famous members of a worldwide network, looking for the ultimate sexual gratification, taking advantage of exploited and vulnerable women and children. Jack and the twins determine to close 'The Ranch' and expose those responsible for the villains they are.

Today, the news of Prince Andrews friendship with convicted paedophile, Jeffrey Epstein, has, understandably, caused shocks throughout the world. It seems that Epstein had set up a centre for hedonistic pleasures in a Mexican property he called, 'The Ranch'. How strange! especially as much of what went on in Mexico, the depravity and evil, mirrors exactly the fictional story portrayed in my novel.

I have no agent but if readers of this article knows of anyone interested to read the story (127,000 words) with a view to publishing I would be pleased to hear from them.

With thanks to the Daily mail for the photo of the Mexican property.

UK General Election 2019

It is looking likely that the UK will hold a General Election before the end of the year. Parliament is effectively hogtied, unable to resolve the Brexit impasse with a Government struggling to implement its policies.
Johnson seems to have a good lead in the polls but so did Mrs May at the time of the last GE. What is different this time? The determination of a Labour Party making a last ditch effort to impose an unreformed, unapologetic Socialist agenda on a Country tired of politics. Their main target is the young, the minorities particularly the Muslim community and the otherwise disaffected. Because the traditional demographic has changed, I suggest there is a feeling amongst the Labour Party chiefs that it is now or never or 'do or die' for their cause; the politics of envy. Take from those who have and hand it over to those who haven't; the old story of Robin Hood. Picture Jeremy Corbyn in Lincoln green, a feather in his cap, alongside his Maid Marion in the guise of Diane Abbott.
Because of this imperative, I suggest that this will become the most vitriolic GE in recent times, stirred up by a momentum group dedicated to imposing their will by force where necessary. Vilification of all other parties by social media will be widespread and unprecedented. Widespread voter fraud, especially postal voting, plus bullying at booths will be seen.
Here is a reminder of what we can expect with a Jeremy Corbyn government.

A Jeremy Corbyn government can be summarised as follows:
The politics of Cuba,
The economics of Venezuela,
The military capability of Switzerland,
The foreign policy of Hamas and Hezbollah,
The industrial policy of Orgreave, complete with flying pickets.

Business and Capital will flee the Country leading to lack of investment and the decline of commercial UK. It will result in loss of revenue leading to a decline in all services including the NHS.

Let's be honest

If the Angel Gabriel came down from heaven to earth with Boris' Brexit deal, the likes of Hilary Benn, Dominic Grieve, Anna Soubrey and Jeremy Corbyn would reject it, probably without even reading it.
Such is their interpretation of Democracy, it would appear it is the system of government where only their opinion counts. The people voted out, no ifs or buts ifs

When is a grope not a grope?

This morning on ITV's GMB programme the presenters made every effort to demonise the Prime Minister, the political leader of the UK as he embarks on a round of difficult negotiations. And what was he supposed to have done? It is alleged that he stroked/groped a journalist's thight twenty years ago.They quizzed the Minister of Justice, Buckland as to whether or not this was a criminal offence. PATHETIC. Not so long ago this stroking of a woman's knee under a table might be considered an act of courtship; a getting to know you manoeuvre that was either accepted or rejected as any verbal approach. It is possible that SOME and I repeat some woman might consider it an outrage that a man didn't stroke their thigh.
If the courts had to try all those men (and woman) who stroked/ groped their neighbours under the table there would be no time for any other business; the courts would be chocker. The whole approach by the presenters on GMB was reprehensible. Boris Johnson has, if the allegations are true, demonstrated once again that he is a real man with the vital passions and urges of a hot blooded alpha male, not a common criminal as alleged.

Prorogation a convenience

A lawyer outside the Supreme Court suggested that 'Democracy' itself was threatened if the Prime Minister opted to prorogue parliament as a matter of convenience in order to avoid scrutiny of his plans to leave the European Union at the end of October. As a matter of record Boris Johnson has not prorogued Parliament ad infinitum allowing, therefore, Parliament to sit and exercise its own democratic right to challenge the PM with a vote of confidence. This is where the real seat of power lies, not legal rulings, crying 'unfair'. Mr Corbyn and the leader of the Liberal Democrats refused  to exercise their right to call a vote of confidence because it was not convenient for them. Why not? Because they didn't want a general Election they felt they would lose. This call for the maintenance of 'democracy' is a load of bollocks.

The 'remainer' faction of the British parliament compelled the government to publish details of operation 'yellowhammer' outlining perceived problems to be overcome as the UK leaves the European Union.
Fuelled with a picture of details, these 'remainers' are broadcasting their 'told you so' on every media outlet, neglecting to say that these problems are being addressed by a Minister in order to alleviate the effects after Brexit day. Nobody said it was easy but these 'remainers' seem to conveniently forget that the Government is not responsible for the decision of the people to leave; they are only enacting the democratic decision of the people in the 2016 referendum and to do so in a manner to cause minimum disruption. To suggest that the people were misled in the referendum is tantamount to saying that the people are stupid and it is this that needs to be shouted from the rooftops. Why don't the 'remainers' hold their hands up and admit they lost the referendum and stop trying to frustrate the democratic wishes of the whole of the UK. Their efforts serve only to give comfort to those who dislike the UK and as such could be considered treacherous. Either the people are stupid or the 'remainers' are. Which is to be?

Dominic Cummings

Boris Johnson's Chief of Staff, Dominic Cummings has come under a lot of criticism for his brutal cleansing of the Conservative and Unionist Party, removing the Party whip from twenty-one MPs. Following the disclosure that former Chancellor and arch remainer Philip Hammond has been in collusion with the European Union legal team and the behaviour of Dominic Grieve and Kenneth Clarke he has been right to do so, right to eradicate a corruption or canker that goes right to the very top of the party, benignly supported by Mrs. May..
Their behaviour allied to the stupidity of the Labour Party, the Liberal Democrats who refuse to accept the will of the people and the Scottish Nationalists who are very selective about which referendum they approve has ensured that the Government, with the no-deal option taken off the table, has no negotiating leeway whatsoever in their endeavour to get a better deal for the UK. In any General Election this must be shouted long and hard. These men and women have ensured that, unless the PM can pull an unlikely rabbit out of the hat, the UK will pay whatever the EU demands whether it be billions of pounds, adherence to EU law or both.
Dominic Grieve in particular has done his damndest to thwart the will of the people by introducing, under cover of parliamentary procedure, bills to frustrate the Government in their attempt to get a good deal. Now, having had the whip removed and faced with deselection he has announced he will stand against the official Tory candidate as an independent. His treachery is complete, confirming what many thought after his disgraceful handling of the Dr. Kelly affair when he was Attorney General.

Failings of TV presenters

Each tv presenter and political commentator has his or her merit presenting the 'brexit' problem as they see it, but everyone and I mean everyone fails in the simplest task of holding their mostly 'remainer' guests to account over a fundamental lie. When remainers argue that 'brexit' does not mean leaving without a deal or the public did not vote for poverty or to lose their jobs, they are never challenged. This is a disgrace. The public didn't vote for these things because they were never on the ballot paper. 'In' or 'out' were the only options so why don't the presenters etc point this out and that all other considerations, the opinion of their guests, is irrelevant.
I suggest that this simple mantra should be repeated ad nauseam until these detractors understand that insisting the public didn't understand the binary question is to imply they are stupid, a point which doubtless will be exposed in a General Election
