Parliament seems to be getting a lot of bad press at the moment however it should be noted that it is doing exactly what it is supposed to do. Parliament is doing a great job protecting the interests of the UK from a irresponsible and reckless Prime Minister: Boris Johnson. It is also protecting us from the irresponsible majority that voted to leave the EU and it is ultimately protecting us from the worst outcomes of all of this by attempting to prevent a ‘No Deal Brexit’. Parliament should be applauded for all this but instead it is being chastised and criticised whilst becoming the target for the British right wing press.
Parliament is protecting the UK by not allowing a childish megalomaniac to control the show and get his own way. I have already mentioned that I believe the Tories actually have a secret Brexit agenda whereby a ‘No Deal Brexit’, leaving without any deal at all would actually suit them best. It appears that this policy actually suits them best because it is my belief that this irresponsible and reckless Prime Minister and the vultures that sit next to him on the benches of the House of Commons are pursuing a strategy to bring about a low wage economy in Britain. This, I believe is their ultimate goal.
Brexit largely appealed to right wing racists or the old colonialists

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.

Has anyone told you how much Brexit will cost you as an individual or as a family? Did you know that you are likely to be between £2000-3000 a year worse off as a result of Brexit.
Did you know that the average British citizen will be between £2000-3000 worse off as a result of Brexit, that probably means you

What is wrong with British people it seems that you must just like a bad deal. There has been a significant rise in the amount of people drawn to European based supermarkets in the last decade or more yet the British people seem willing to loose all these benefits by supporting Brexit and heading towards a ‘no deal Brexit’ . So what I can summise is that the British people either just don’t know a good deal when they have one or simply like paying over the odds for commodities. When we leave the EU we will be held to ransom again through the inflated prices of the British and American based supermarket chains often supplying inferior produce at inflated prices. Competition will be reduced and consumer choice will be stiffled. Many of the British people who voted for Brexit will be the same people that shop in these lower priced supermarkets. These same supermarkets will not be able to supply these goods in the same way that they do now. They may well disappear completely. Cheaper and often better European alternatives will be no more. The spending power of British folk will be reduced as we will be forced to pay more for the same goods. Are we just stupid why don’t we see this?
European Supermarkets softened the blows of Tory Austerity Measures for many
European Supermarkets softened the blows of recent Tory Austerity Measures for many British people by offering better deals than traditional supermarkets. Many British people took advantage of this during the period of austerity and continue to do so having realised that the quality of the produce is often much better and much cheaper than the British alternatives. This helped people’s money go farther as prices were rising and wages kept low. Now it seems that the British have got so used to this that they are now simply taking it for granted. However with Brexit this will all change. It is likely that the likes of Aldi and Lidl could just disappear after Brexit with the consequences of poorer consumer choice and the higher prices and often inferior quality of the traditional British Supermarket Chains. This will be as a result of tariffs going onto European produce forcing price rises. For the likes of Aldi and Lidl their current reason to be is because they can offer their goods at competitive prices. This situation is not likely to exist post Brexit. As a result consumers will be forced to pay more for their goods. So the British folk currently looking for a bargain to stretch out their income will soon loose this advantage. So the British will be paying more of their household income on food and other commodities. What is wrong with the British once out for a good deal but so keen to simply discard a very good deal and replace it with a rubbish ‘no deal Brexit’. Tell me where is the sense in that? Who but the very dim witted would do that?
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.
So this is the life after Brexit: a taster of the special relationship and phenomenal trade deals that await after the UK after Brexit. Or will the UK be a disrespected nation subjected to the bullying behaviours of more stable and powerful economies like the US. The lack of respect shown towards Britain’s ambassador to the US more likely indicates the latter. As our position becomes one of beggar looking for trade deals anywhere we can find them ,we should be mindful that the Eagle of the US may actually be a vulture waiting to pick over the bones of the UK as it struggles along outside the EU. Without negotiating power or powerful friends we could find that the terms of any special relationships may be neither quite as favourable nor mutual beneficial or as respectful as we first naively believed.
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.
Tories are desperate to rid themselves of the continuing embarrassment of Brexit so they seem to be placing their faith in the dodgy building firm of Hunt & Bodge it. They seem to want a quick fix to Brexit (a Rush Job) in order to rid themselves of the continued embarrassment of seemingly not being able to successfully get the job done. In order to hide their incompetence they have given the work to Hunt & Bodge it a dodgy local firm with a poor reputation which rumour has it will soon be going into liquidation anyway. But wasting public money by giving contracts to dodgy businesses has never really worried the Tories anyway.
Both Hunt and Bodge it claim that they can get the job done on time by the deadline but neither can guarantee the quality of their workmanship or that people will not suffer as a result of their labour’s. Health and Safety are not really matters of concern for Hunt & Bodge it!
Comments made today by Grimsby MP are not necessarily representative of the general feeling in the Labour Party towards a second Brexit referendum. Particularly because the Labour Party need to improve their support in Scotland if they are to have any serious chance of success in a General Election. Scotland is clearly in favour of remaining in the EU. The only way of achieving greater electoral success in Scotland is to offer at the very least a second Brexit referendum. Therefore there could be much to gain by offering a second referendum as a manifesto pledge. There are also many Party members who support Remain. For more details please see my post on this issue.
