Have you ever wondered why the Tories are so keen to push ahead with Brexit despite the gloomy forecast for the UK’s Economic Future and the reality for the majority of UK citizens? Have you ever wondered if they are not telling you something? Well the plain truth about why they are so keen to achieve a departure from the European Union at whatever cost to this Country lies in the past and the Conservatives continued allegiance to the principles of Thatcherism.
Yesterday saw Boris Johnson desperately rallying in front of press conference to gather support again for his cause, with sound bytes in response to the gloomy admissions made by the Government last week that Brexit will actually be bad for Britain. Rather than be a responsible politician who cares for Britain and it’s citizens by facing the facts, BoJo’s response is to further attempt to mislead, beguile and appeal to the right-wing sentiment that has placed us all in this stupid predicament. His rallying calls are now just a desperate attempt to brainwash and persuade his army of followers to charge into battle ill-equipped for the battle ahead. Sentiment alone will prove to be inadequate armour for the challenges of our exit from the EU. Here we are again with the age old British problem of a handful of toffs believing that they have God given rights to sacrifice ordinary Britain’s in their ill-thought out schemes and battles. It’s now high time to face facts Boris, that Brexit will actually be bad for Britain. It’s high time that his followers started to realise what a comic book pillock he actually is and started to put Britain first rather than believe in the lunacy of a egotistical politician that cares more for his own persona than he does for Britain.
Finally, this week, the Government have been forced to come clean and actually reveal to us the consequences of Brexit, if these were not already apparent before the Referendum. Yes they have confirmed that Brexit, in whatever form it takes, will make us all worse off and basically result in an economic slump for the UK which will lead to higher prices, inflation and job losses. So well done to the small majority of people who have voted for this course of disaster : or wait a minute did you not realise that this would be the outcome?
Well the answer to this lies in 2 camps. The main reason is that Therese May’s negotiations with the European Union are certainly not going well. In fact she is simply annoying our European Neighbours with her arrogance that she will win. Facts are that she really holds no persuasive bargaining power in these negotiations and the outcome will always be what it has been from the start that Britain faces a very tough and unprofitable Brexit. For May the further these negotiations go then the more likely that the outcome of these negotiations will not be positive for Britain or for her personally. Therefore before this happens and people of Britain begin to see behind the facade and start to blame the Conservatives for Britain’s Economic Demise, May simply wants to buy more time for herself and her Conservative Party in government by calling an early General Election in 2017. Quite simply by ruining the Economy whilst in Government would not look good for the Tories in the run up to another Election so she is hoping that within 5 years she can salvage something that could save her and her Party. Added to this is the fact that because of Brexit and the uncertainties regarding our Economy and the strength of the Pound she is further hampered by the Tories previous Election Pledges under Cameron not to raise taxation. Because of Brexit and to shore up the Economy she has calculated that this will be a further hindrance so she desperately needs to re-adjust this situation. When recently questioned about tax rises she was vague and non-committal. She well knows that she will be seeking to raise taxation. So in the end we will be all worse off well at least those that can least afford a tax rise namely the working classes. In this way Theresa May is being very devious and attempting to use the General Election in 2017 to increase taxation by stealth. This is to shore up her ineptness to steer us out of the European Union without bankrupting the country and ruining the Economy. She knows that there is a risk of this so she is seeking a mandate for us all to foot the bill for her and her Parties ineptitude.
Lastly May sees this as an opportunity to eliminate the threat from Jeremy Corbyn before he has really had a chance to develop his position in the Labour Party. Being a decent man with a caring attitude and high moral fibre she does see him as a threat despite what she has said in public. So she is spearheading a smear campaign against him with dirty political tactics. In fact she is rather despicable and not a very nice lady herself despite the public image that she attempting to cultivate ( a public makeover in the style of Margaret Thatcher). Corbyn is a good speaker and is a match for her and her arrogance in the House of Commons and May knows that he represents a threat. She is hoping that a General Election defeat will result in the Labour Party seeking to oust him as Leader in favour of another further plunging the Labour Party into turmoil.
The sad reflection of the Brexit Vote is that reason and intelligence have been sacrificed in favour of a Popularist Vote and Majority rule. It has encouraged the small minded section of the British Public to believe that their opinions matter. In fact the Brexit Vote has endorsed this belief. Now it seems that Britain is being run not by elected governments with the expertise to run a country but instead by a misconceived Popularist Vote. What a way to run things! This sort of thing would simply not happen in business where people are selected for various tasks and duties based on expertise and competence. Instead we have the situation where the future of Britain and it’s economic status is being decided by a vote that was composed mainly of people who: latched onto only one aspect of the argument, saw an opportunity to openly express their prejudices and right wing views and who saw an opportunity to express an extreme dislike of foreigners entering the country. I would say that if a poll were to be taken the majority of British citizens would not have the least idea about topics such as Economics, Inflation, Trade Tariffs or International Trade so why have we what is basically an uneducated majority decide what is best for Britain on these matters?
Now we all have to face the consequences of David Cameron and the Tory parties desperate bid for power in seeking to appeal to the small minded biggots that unfortunately we find today in Britain. Cameron’s gamble backfired which ultimately led him to resign. Personally I do not take well to be told what to do by people when I neither respect their opinion nor credit them with a certain amount of intelligence or competence to do the job correctly. Now my whole future will be influenced by this decision taken by a majority that I have no faith in and together with me the fate of the whole country has been decided in this fashion as well. It is a prospect I am not looking forward to at all. This choice has been imposed upon me by a section of the public that most probably has no understanding of Economics at all.
Brexit is a gamble and Britain is now officially a Nation of Gamblers
Brexit is quite simply a gamble. It’s like backing a 100 to 1 outsider. Brexit has turned the whole country into a nation of gamblers betting irresponsibly on uncertainties. Many people who voted for Brexit did so based solely on: their own personal opinions and what effects them personally; what upsets them about Britain, their own prejudices, their uncharitableness towards others in need of assistance; their own interpretation of what Brexit meant to them without considering the larger picture and the long term consequences for Britain as a whole. Many of these people most probably voted for the first time and probably have little genuine interest in politics, fiscal policy and economics nor in General Elections. How can we trust this section of the public to make the right choices for Britain? How can it be that Britain could so willingly sacrifice: reason, intelligence and it’s economic future for the sake of prejudice and bigotry.
In some ways I feel sorry for Theresa May speeding off to the United States to meet Donald Trump. The reality is that she has no choice she has to be seen to be making the best of it. May has to be seen to getting a good deal otherwise Brexit is just going to look like the flop it already is. The EU is sticking to it’s guns and is going to make it hard for Britain. Yes it’s going to be a Hard Brexit after all but May feels that she deflect and distract from all this by harking back to the ‘Special Relationship’ that her predecessor forged with another questionable president running the USA. To me it all smacks of desperation since Trump has openly said that it will be ‘America First’ so really what does Theresa May really hope to gain from her US visit to Trump?
We will be looking at recent speeches in the Commons by Jeremy Corbyn and how his speeches seem to conflict with his plans to let Theresa May and her Tories have a free hand, unchallenged in processing their Brexit plans through Parliament. Is the Labour Party now colluding with the Tories to get a swift Brexit. Should not the Labour Party be opposing Theresa May and her government in their attempts to speed through what is essentially the product of a right wing and extreme right movement. Brexit is loosing momentum and support on a daily basis as it becomes clearer of what the consequences to the British Economy will be with the value of the Pound steadily dropping and the prospect of a hard Brexit looming. The Labour Party would be best served preaching good sense and be thinking what is best for Britain and the British Economy rather than attempting to gain electoral advantage by courting support from right wing voters.
It was a cold winter’s evening and Theresa May sat in front of her class of children who understood from her words that they were there to be punished. May repeated again and again ‘Brexit means Brexit!’ as she watched the children cower in front of her. She preached her words over and over again to emphasise how foolish the children had been to vote for a Brexit. The simple repetition of the word Brexit only served to castigate them even more as if Mrs May were saying that I am only doing this and punishing you so severely because you have made me do it. ‘Brexit means Brexit’, she said again, further implying that she herself had no choice in the matter; she was merely an instrument of their own self destruction and she was merely the un-willing instrument to bring all this retribution and reckoning for a totally self inflicted act of stupidity. But as she sat there repeating those words to the castigated and downtrodden children there appeared to be a look in Theresa May’s eyes that suggested, in spite of her apparent unwillingness to bring about this stupid end to the stupid chain of events, that she might in fact be enjoying all this.
Have you taken a moment to understand that Brexit will be bad for Britain. It’s now getting obvious that there will be no good deal for the U.K from our European partners and why should there be. Theresa May is emphatic that we will succeed in getting a good deal for Britain but this is mainly just Tory arrogance. Why should we believe that we are a special case deserving of the best or a better deal than anyone else. This has always been our attitude to Europe we somehow have this notion that we are more deserving or best placed to have special rights. Well no more because the European Union are going to make an example of us : how dare they leave. They will make it hard with no special deals. It is in their interests of survival that we are made an example of: isn’t that just so obvious. They are not going to make us a nice cosy deal otherwise all the other European Union Countries will want to leave under similar cosy little arrangements. Theresa May already knows this because she has been attempting to find friends in Europe since being given the messy job of being the Brexit Prime Minister. She can’t find friend nor favour and time is quickly running out. Despite this Theresa May is sitting pretty and brimming with confidence so you have to wonder why. Well the answer to this lies in the simple rule of Conservative Party undeclared policy: Simply blame someone else for the mess that they might find themselves in. So when it all goes horribly wrong and when the British Public are complaining that they have received a hard Brexit and prices have risen, people have lost jobs and Inflation has rocketed who will be to blame: Well You of course. The British Public will be to blame for making Theresa May do this economically Hara-Kiri. Theresa May is sitting pretty and pressing ahead with this economic suicide because you, the British Public, wanted her to. Yes your to blame for Brexit : you the bigots and small-minded people who actually bothered, probably for the first time in your lives, to go to the polling stations. Who else is to blame well David Cameron of course for encouraging the small-minded bigots to rally for their cause and in letting them express their misguided opinions.
Then you have to ask yourselves who benefits from Brexit. Well Theresa May and the Conservatives stand to benefit from the stupidity of Brexit by inheriting a Thatcherite Utopia of a low wage economy with high unemployment and high inflation which Thatcher sought to bring about and exploited by eroding wages and working conditions for U.K. citizens and workers. This is what Theresa May wants for U.K citizens and when this happens the metamorphosis of may into Margerat Thatcher II ( no spelling mistake I assure you) will be complete.
And finally to those of you who are saying that there will be a British Economic Boom as a result of Brexit and our isolationist stance falsely believing that there will be more jobs and better opportunities for British workers well here is a small lesson in Economics.
Any downturn in the Economy such as higher levels of inflation reduces people’s spending power and as such sales are reduced. Higher inflation and a weak pound may make us appealing to exports but exactly who we will be exporting to is in serious doubt because the US will also be attempting economic isolation and Europe simply will not be playing ball with us. High inflation makes us all worse off so we spend less sending our economy into further decline and recession. Recession results in job losses and under Tory control will also result in erosion of wages and workers rights. Higher unemployment again results in less affluence and reduced spending which also results in more benefit payments and increased financial burdens on Central Government which then results in higher levels of taxation and or borrowing. Thus increasing the deficit.
Well they have finally admitted it now there is not going to be any Christmas Cheer coming your way from Theresa May and her Conservative Party Government. They have finally been forced to release their unpleasant news in the Budget of last week. This is a gloomy forecast indeed and is in stark contrast to Theresa May‘s previous promise to be a Party for people and working people especially. There is no good news or hope to be taken from the November 2016 Budget and the financial forecasts: just more Jams (just about managing) and no Creams at all for the majority of people. Then add on to all this the stupidity of pressing ahead with Brexit and the resulting higher inflation and devaluing of people’s wages and living standards and you have more and more ‘jams'( Just About Managing). So there is no good news ahead for those that are presently ‘jams’ ( just about managing ) and those that are not currently ‘jams’ the bad news is that with a hard Brexit looming ahead you soon will be. The only sense that I can make of it all is that Theresa May in reality wants a low wage, high inflation and high unemployment economy the same as her cherished predecessor ‘Margaret Thatcher‘ , who is after all her idol and the politician she most aspires to resemble. This similar set of circumstances gave Margerat Thatcher (not a misspelling I assure you) the opportunity to punish the working classes and divide them to the point from which they are still yet to recover and come to their senses. Due to a set of very similar economic circumstances she was able to drive down wages, erode workers rights, divide traditional loyalties and worst of all she made snobs of the working class and all because of a high inflation, high unemployment economy which was favourable to her extreme policies. This was the Thatcherite Utopia to which Theresa May now also aspires to and this is why she is so keen to be pressing ahead with Brexit despite the gloomy economic forecasts. Theresa May and her Conservative Government cannot and should not be trusted as she is not acting in the interests of Great Britain or the UK Economy.
