The best possible outcome is to stop Brexit

Published on by

Brexit Secretary David Davis will have the perfect excuse when Brexit destroys the United Kingdom. Ignorance. He admits he hasn’t done any in-depth research on the impact of Brexit. He doesn’t believe in it. He just believes in Brexit; it’s a faith for him. Who needs facts when you’re a self-described “determined optimist”? But Theresa […]

The two-faced Tories ruining the UK

Published on by

• Click photo to enlarge   All except one of Theresa May’s first Brexit Cabinet were in favour of the EU or its Single Market prior to last year’s Referendum. Now, all her Cabinet are taking the country on the road to Brexit, even though most of them had previously urged that such an action would […]

The government of long noses

Published on by

Today in Parliament, Prime Minister Theresa May said of Brexit, “The negotiations are in progress and very good progress has been made in those negotiations.” Did you notice her nose grow an inch? We can’t believe anything this government tells us. The Brexit negotiations are going disastrously wrong. Did Mrs May fly to Brussels on […]

Britain’s road to insanity

Published on by

David Davis only last March said we’d never pay anything like a £50 billion settlement to leave the EU. Boris Johnson said the EU could go and whistle for the money. Priti Patel said the EU should be told to sod off. During the referendum campaign nobody was told anything about the cost of leaving […]

If only Parliament would stop interfering

Published on by

What a bloody nuisance Parliament is to the Tory government these days, when all the Prime Minister wants to do is get on with Brexit. If only Parliament would stop interfering, she and her fellow Brexiter Ministers could make much more progress. Ditto the law. I mean really, why do we need Parliament and the […]

Theresa May urged to ‘exploit Merkel crisis’

Published on by

Senior Tory Brexiters demanded last night that Theresa May exploit Angela Merkel’s political weakness and suspend plans to offer billions of pounds more to the European Union, according to today’s front page of The Times. Talks to form a coalition in Germany collapsed yesterday, and Mrs Merkel said that she was ready for a rerun […]

Why the Brexit Secretary is out of his depth

Published on by

In Berlin this week our Brexit Secretary, David Davis, attempted to give a lecture to the Germans. “Don’t put politics above prosperity,” he said. That seems rich as the ideology of Brexit means doing exactly that: putting politics above the prosperity of Britain. But there were other oxymorons in Mr Davis’s speech. He said he […]

UK Brexit impact reports now don’t exist

Published on by

We should have known all along that the 58 Brexit impact assessments that Brexit Secretary, David Davis, claimed existed only last month are in fact all bluff and bluster. Just like Brexit itself. Today Mr Davis told MPs that the UK government’s 58 sectoral analyses of the impact of Britain leaving the EU can’t be […]

David Davis doesn’t understand negotiating or the EU

Published on by

Brexit Secretary, David Davis, has said that Britain won’t hold ANY Brexit talks unless the EU drops its demands for €100bn in payments it claims are due. It’s now more than likely that Britain will leave the EU without any agreement in place, which of course will be disastrous. Unfortunately, David Davis has shown he […]
