Micheal Gove appeared to be almost robotic yesterday when offering his appeasements regarding the possible outcomes of leaving the EU without a deal. He came across as completely unconvincing as he attempted to play down the possible outcomes of a no deal Brexit with all the emotion and conviction of a Robot. Gove lacks almost every quality that you would want in a politician. He is insincere, unreliable and a real flip-flopper if ever there was one. However you might believe that he is actually quite loyal: well at least to those willing to employ him that is. He did his best to stick up for the beleaguered Theresa May in her time as PM and was supportive towards getting a deal with the EU and her efforts to do so. Now he is equally loyal to a new master that of Bodge-it Johnson whose opinions about a deal with the EU are seemingly poles apart from those of May but despite all this Gove is still loyal even to the point of spreading a few mis-truths along the way as well.
It would appear that Micheal Gove has thrown himself into his new role with such enthusiasm and conviction that he is now barely recognisable as the Leadership Candidate who opposed Bodge it so recently. At that time he seemed to have some opinions which seemed to be different to that of Bodge-it but now he has seemingly just turned into Johnson’s Puppet. All this goes to show what a vacuous space Micheal Gove really is. He resembles an empty Billboard that rents out to the highest bidder. Seemingly he will have any opinions that you wish to give him for a price. Thus it must be said that Micheal Gove appears to be a politician who lacks any real convictions at all and is willing to go wherever the money is. This is yet another self promoting Conservative politician who you simply cannot trust. Why would you trust him he has demonstrated time and again that he is insincere and unreliable. He has no convictions other than to tow the Party line to serve his paymaster. Why would we believe his appeasements regarding a ‘No deal Brexit’: this man could not give you the truth if he tried. He is more servant than savant. He is robotic and insincere and simply going through the motions.
Like a spoilt child the Prime Minister Boris Johnson has prorogued parliament in order to try and get his own way. Have we ever encountered an act of irresponsibly as big as this. In a time of crisis for Britain the Prime Minister( and how much it pains me to have to refer to him as such) has simply chosen to abandon the normal functioning of government in order to silence his critics and to give him a better opportunity to press ahead with his own agenda without the limitations that parliament could impose on the crazy megalomaniac. Still intent on wrecking Britain and pressing ahead with no deal this prime minister cares nothing at all about Britain he only seems to recognise his own agenda and ambitions. Boris Johnson is bad for Britain! Parliament to him is not a democratic tool it is an obstacle. He still believes he can run the show like he did as London Mayor without opposition. Parliament is another matter and he has already been defeated. So now his idea is to silence parliament to make obstacles to obstruct parliament. This prime minister is just a childish Megalomaniac, a spoilt public schoolboy who is used to getting his own way. Bodge-it is certainly not going to face the horrible consequences of of a British recession and a one sided and exploitative trade deal with the USA. None of these Brexiteers will. Why do you think that the likes of the condescending Rees Mogg support Brexit? These are opportunistic venture capitalists hoping to erode working and living conditions. The likes of Rees Moog would have you living in a Victorian Slum if they could and working for nothing more than to pay them rent and enough food to give you the energy just enough to slave for them the next day. Jacob Rees Mogg is so obsessed with Victorian values he has even written a book about it this speaks volumes in itself. These are simply the people that you don’t want running this country or telling us what’s best for Britain because what they are really saying is what’s best for them. The situation that can offer them the best possible opportunity and outcome is all that they are really interested in.
These Brexiteering venture capitalists see Brexit as an opportunity to destroy Britain and British institutions. They see it as an opportunity to attack and suppress the working classes and erode their rights. There is no better opportunity than a recession in order to do it, this much they have learnt from Margaret Thatcher who did the same. Economic factors play a large part in offering opportunities to impose change. In a period of uncertainty and desperation often bodes well to make sweeping changes in legislation relating to worker’s rights and conditions of service including pay and minimum wage. Through a recession these keen Brexiteers aim to drive down labour costs and increase unemployment. These are the economic variables that lead to desperation for the working classes which ultimately lead to a relaxation of labour laws and regulations. This is an erosion of conditions for the workers which leads to opportunity to exploit the workforce. High unemployment makes challenging the situation untenable which gives power to the bosses and venture capitalists. Brexit will therefore only lead to misery for the working classes with an erosion of your standards of living and your worker’s rights.
Bodge-it is hiding the truth from you that no deal suits him best
Continue reading Britain left to drift for a month as an irresponsible Prime Minister prorogues Parliament
Boris Johnson has made his gambit positioning himself for a General Election by morphing in Nigel Farage mk II in an attempt to persuade Farage’s supporters to vote for him instead. He is re-positioning the Tories as a right to far right party. This strategy is a gamble because firstly it could alienate many in his own Party and he also counting on there being the same 3.6% majority in favour of the Leave Campaign without a swing in favour of Remain. He is hoping to take a large slice of the Brexit Party’s support away from Farage. This move is more about appeasing the far right in his own party than doing what is right and best for the country as a whole. This is reckless and reactionary politics playing into the hands of the far right in Britain. It is irresponsible politics.
Maths has never been a strength of Bodge-it and chances are he has miscalculated
It appears that Bodge-it has oversimplified the mathematics yet again to draw the conclusion that he will win a General Election. It appears that he has calculated that whoever commands the 3.6% in favour of Leave will win. What he has failed to grasp that this majority albeit very slender was composed of cross party loyalties which when it comes to a General Election may not be so easily predicted as many ‘Remainers’ wouldn’t consider voting Tory just to get Brexit completed. It is just not that simplistic. The recent success of the Brexit Party may not be be repeatable under General Election conditions because for many the appeal of that Party lay simply in a protest vote. Also looking at the composition of the overall vote in the recent EU elections showed that overall support for Brexit had actually decreased but this vote was split over a few Parties. Again this situation may not be replicated in a General Election. Many Labour supporters who wanted to Remain in the EU were protesting against the Labour Party’s vague position at that time. This has forced Labour in particular to modify and clarify it’s position. Again we are likely to see a drift back towards Labour in a General Election. Finally the SNP’s inability to do anything to halt Brexit may have the biggest effect on a General Election. This situation may come as a realisation for Scottish voters who may be attracted to a less regional Party that could have influence over what happens regarding Brexit. Scottish voters may well understand the need to vote for a UK wide party that could actually prevent both Scotland’s and the Uk’s departure rather than vote with possible devolution on their minds as the highest priority.
Finally many have come to realise that what they were sold in the referendum was not a true picture. As a result many will have changed their minds fearful of the real implications of leaving the EU. Fearful for their jobs and their livelihoods it would be inconceivable that there hasn’t now been a considerable swing in favour of remain.
Bodge-it is a politician of ideals with little true grasp of the issue. His attention to detail is scant and his grasp of the mathematics involved is questionable. I believe that he is over confident placing far too much faith in his own abilities and could be underestimating the strength of feeling against him. He is after all an unelected Prime Minister. The same thing that happened to Theresa May could also happen to him.
Bodge-it Johnson has already shown that he is no match for Trump. Bodge-it has been easily won over by Trump’s flattery and Bodge-it is so self obsessed and vain that he fell for it, so much so that regarding the British ambassador to America he failed to to defend him and just let Trump have his own way. What this indicates is that the NHS is certainly not safe with Bodge-it in charge because he will always defer to Trump. Bodge cannot be trusted to enter into negotiations with Trump because he is not up to it! Britain is not safe it will be open to exploitation of the big greedy Trump.
Sincerely you would have thought that as a previous Foreign Secretary that Bodge-it-Johnson would have had at least some grasp of how the Foreign Office works and the respectively roles of Foreign Ambassadors well it seems not. Bodge-it’s casual remarks no doubt in some way contributed to the resignation of Sir Kim Darrock. By kowtowing down to President Trump in an attempt to ingratiate himself and his ever growing political ambition Bodge-it seems to have ripped up the Rule Book regarding the respective roles and qualities needed to the job of foreign ambassador and in the process made us as a nation look weak by giving in to bullying behaviours, all this on the eve of his supposedly greatest triumph. What appears to be the case is that Sir Kim Darrock was actually too good at his job because he was doing it very well indeed and because of this it seems to have caused others offence, he was simply the victim of the incompetence and ignorance of others who were less good at their jobs. So Trump throws a tantrum and Bodge just caves in and as a result others have to clean up the mess left behind. So begins Bodge’s first exploit into the world of ‘Kindergarten Politics’. I am pretty sure he will fit in well! Will this just be the first in a long string of similar incompetent gaffs by Bodge-it, I think it probably will be so.
Bodge-it certainly sees himself as a Churchill like figure and that is basically what he bases his image upon. He sees this as the moment of Britain’s greatest need and he sees himself as the figure likely to step in to lead the Country out of it’s darkest hour towards a brighter future. All this really shows is that Bodge is full of his own importance and vanity and is in fact just a manipulative, self seeking individual from a privileged background. Also what Bodge-it fails to grasp is that Churchill reacted to circumstances brought about by other despotic figures in the world at that time. Bodge on the other hand is only trying to fix the mess of his own making and Cameron’s I should add. There is no real comparison between himself and Churchill. Churchill was a great man and Boris is well just a bit of a prat really. So when I hear statements from Bodge suggesting that he will make Britain the greatest place on Earth well you just have to laugh it is so absurd. This man cannot deliver on any of the outrageous promises he makes. He was only trusted with half a job by Theresa May and he managed to mangle and bodge that one up as well. Being a Mayor with little to do really and being a Prime Minister to lead and inspire are 2 very different roles. Bodge will just make a hash of being Prime Minister and lead the country towards ruin. Bodge has no compassion or understanding for those whose livelihoods will be wrecked as a result of his silly political meanderings. For Bodge-it it’s all just a game without serious consequences. He shows little understanding of the real world because he knows that he personally will not have to face the consequences of his silly public schoolboy pranks. Britain is certainly on the verge of catastrophe but the situation is in fact traceable back to Bodge-it-Johnson anyway and the misinformation of his Leave Campaign and it’s outrageous or liberal use of the truth and the figures during that Campaign.
Let’s face it, David Cameron was most probably the worst Prime Minister that Britain has ever had. His lasting legacy of incompetence can still be witnessed today with the ongoing debacle of Brexit. Not only had he given opportunity to wreck his Country but he also opened the door to to wreck his own Conservative Party through a posthumous demonstration of their ineptness and inadequacies to cope with the stupid promises that he made in order to bribe his way into power. No wonder he legged it and disappeared under a rock as soon as the results of the Brexit Referendum were known.
Despite this being only in recent memory the Conservative Party seem determined to outclass even this disgrace by potentially putting in place a new Prime Minister with the credentials to outclass even this dubious and notorious dishonour. It would appear that the momentum to win the battle to be the next Prime Minister is held by Boris Johnson despite the fact that in TV debate and in TV interview he appears to have no clear vision about what to do about the Brexit Situation that he inherited from the incompetent Cameron. His ideas seem vague and conflicting and ill thought through. He seems to believe that if his very dubious skills as a negotiator run aground he can rely on arrogance and bullying of the EU to get his own way. Something very public school about this attitude in my opinion don’t you think? When questioned about this attitude towards and concerns for the livelihoods of British Citizens regarding leaving the EU without a deal, he seemed both disengaged and unbelieving that his actions could have some consequences beyond the realm of Boris which is probably again due to his public school attitude to life. His approach therefore seems quite cavalier, arrogant and rather reckless so why would he be considered as suitable material for a British Prime Minister?
Well despite the Tories recent history of appointing incompetent Prime Ministers and Party leaders it appears that they want to elect a new one with even greater potential to do the Country harm. The Conservative’s ineptness to select a responsible and suitable Prime Minister shows a complete disregard for Britain and it’s citizens. They are seemingly willing to take a huge gamble with the well being of the UK by putting in place a Prime Minister that has the potential to do even more serious harm to the UK and it’s economy than even the stupidity and chaos wreaked by Cameron. We must ask are the Tories fit for purpose could they even organise a piss up in a Brewery? How could they even consider Boris Johnson as suitable for the role of Prime Minister but despite these major concerns they have set him in place as the favourite and preferred candidate seemingly giving his campaign the most momentum at this point. The Tory Party Leadership race is still open and the race to be the next Prime Minister is still ongoing. The Tories have really sown the seeds of their own demise in the selection and preference shown towards Johnson. The public will never forgive the Tories if they make a hash of Brexit and leave the EU without a deal. They need to select their new Leader and next Prime Minister wisely in order to avoid further catastrophe and embarrassment for both themselves and the UK as a whole. Jeremy Hunt by the same token seemingly has the same agenda albeit with a slightly different style. Hunt seems to have the same disregard for the consequences of a no deal Brexit therefore the Tories have locked themselves into a single course of action by fielding 2 potential candidates, for the role of the next Prime Minister, who both have exactly the same agenda.
Boris Johnson is a quitter; he is certainly no Prime Minister nor is he fit to be a British Prime Minister. In 2018 Boris Johnson quit Theresa May’s cabinet because he could not support her unwilling to rally to her cause he saw fit to quit because after all he is an opportunist. Johnson saw his future on the back of Theresa May’s demise and he certainly was not willing to offer his help to May because that have thwarted his ambition. No instead he was going to be disloyal to her and make himself as much as a nuisance to her as he possibly could. Boris Johnson is above all in it for himself. When the going gets tough he quits. He is a quitter which is certainly something that Britain does not need right now.
Continue reading Boris Johnson is a quitter: he is no Prime Minister!
Theresa May has again shown her incompetence to be the Prime Minister in a decision that she took as far back as when she took office. Namely the appointment of Boris Johnson to her cabinet. Seemingly at the time this was a move that resurrected the doomed Mr Johnson. My previous article (18th July 2016) made at the time covered some of the assumed motivations behind this surprising decision to re-appoint Boris the Annoying Fly back into political office. It now appears that I may have been wrong and the more ridiculous explanation would be that she – actually believed that he could do the job of Foreign Secretary – a job role that requires both sensitivity and diplomacy. Of course, well why not because these are exactly the qualities that one would most likely associate with Boris Johnson – aren’t they?
However it now seems that Theresa May completely under-estimated the annoying insect’s abilities to show the levels of dis-loyalty that he has shown of late. Mr Johnson has now paid her back with his new dis-loyalties which have been timed to undermine Theresa May at a crucial time in what seems like the start of a new leadership challenge and an embarrassingly blatant attempt at self promotion.
Continue reading Boris Johnson – the Fly that wants his own dung heap
Well in my opinion it probably is! Theresa May is certainly a very canny politician and her appointment of Boris Johnson into her new cabinet should have come as no real surprise. In fact I was baffled to see so many people who did not see this kind of appointment coming. In my opinion its a case for Ms May of keep your friends close but your enemies closer. Despite having been stitched right up by Michael Gove in the leadership contest which may, in the run of time, have proved to be only a small set-back in Mr Johnson’s ambitions to be leader: casting him into political wilderness it certainly did not achieve because in some respects there was a great deal of sympathy for Mr Johnson being seen as a victim at the hands of “Mr Nasty”. Many in fact did not blame Boris Johnson at all whereas Mr Gove certainly did seem to come off the worst, paying the price after his predictable return to his intrinsic personality. Now Mr Gove has himself become the victim to his own personality: just deserves having been served.
