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
