There is no ‘oven ready Brexit deal’

There is no ‘oven ready Brexit deal’ it transpires that it was merely an agreement in principle with the EU. Trading terms have not been sorted out and agreed to at all and there still remains the possibility that Britain could still crash out of the EU without any deal. Michael Gove recently confirmed that ‘No Deal’ was still on the table in order to force the EU to offer the UK a better bargaining position with the EU. Trading terms have certainly not been finalised which suggests that agreements on certain issues have only been agreed in principle hence no ‘oven ready Brexit deal’ as Bodge-it claimed in the run up to the General Election. This is therefore not the first campaign that Bodge-it has won on a bluff and fudging of the actual facts and figures. In fact it seems to be part of a trend of being economical with the truth in order to get his own way. I am pretty sure that many people who decided to vote Tory in the last general election were not voting for a ‘No Deal Brexit’. Instead they were told that there was an oven ready deal waiting and ready to proceed. Now it looks as if this was an empty promise.

The first thing a dictator does is attack the media and suppress unfavourable criticism

One of the first things that Boris Johnson has done since being elected is to attack and make threats to the BBC. He seems to be planning to undermine funding of the BBC and threatening some kind of strategy of disengagement which is a decision taken over the press he received when he refused to be interviewed by Andrew Neal.

Britain is obviously happy with another 5 years of Tory incompetence and mismanagement

Britain is obviously happy with another 5 years of Tory incompetence and mismanagement. Let’s face it Britain is a mess but obviously the only thing on people’s minds has been to leave the EU. Well that is now going to happen so Britain has made it’s bed and now will have to lie in it come what may. This General election was not about internal policies and doing things that could have improved Britain it was about putting faith in uncharted waters and blindly trusting our fortunes elsewhere. We may look back on today and rue our decisions and see it as a missed opportunity to tackle many of the problems that Britain has many of which have been caused by Tory incompetence and mismanagement. This General election has not been about policies it has been about personalities and slogans. Britain and the British voters have chosen to gamble on Brexit being the solution to problems instead of sensible set of policies to tackle the most pressing matters and to undo the harm and depression caused by Tory rule. Instead we now have to put faith in the USA and hope that Trump does not see fit to exploit our vulnerable position as we leave the EU. We are basically putting our faith in human nature and an innate sense of morality. However after the result of this election I for one am not sure that any is there to be had. The result of this election defies reason but in a strange way it was also anticipated. This election was the opportunity to end poverty in the UK and address many of Britain’s economic inconsistencies. It was an opportunity to get a fairer Britain and to insure that we got better NHS and public services. Britain decided not to support these values: it could be a decision that we later regret. Most people would have been a whole lot better off if they had chosen to be but Britain and the British people are obviously happy with seeing a decaying Britain under Tory mismanagement without much hope of anything better around the corner. We now have to face Brexit and the challenges that brings with it. Let’s hope that the road be a smooth one.

Get Brexit done is a joke : 3 Tory Prime Ministers and they still haven’t accomplished their own idea

Get Brexit done is the new Tory mantra in the run up to the forthcoming General Election but why should we trust them when so far they haven’t accomplished anything at all. Let’s not forget that Brexit and the EU referendum was their idea. Since then all the Tories have accomplished is 3 changes of Leadership: 3 Tory Prime Ministers and nothing at all to show for it other than a stream of incompetences.

Bodge-it’s ready made Brexit is inedible and bin ready right now

Bodge-it is normally very good at cooking the figures and adding too much spice.  Now it seems he has turned his culinary talents towards constructing ready meals. He has named or coined a phrase for these meals calling them ‘Ready Made Brexit’. However his first foray into the culinary world of Brexit might be more aptly described as ‘Bodge’s Stodge’ because his latest ready made Brexit is inedible and bin ready right now.

The Butcher, the Baker, the Candlestick Maker none of these have a valid opinion about Brexit

The Butcher, the Baker, the Candlestick Maker none of these have a valid opinion about Brexit and in reality none should have been sought out to give their opinion on matters over which they knew nothing, had no understanding of nor expertise in. Such is the mess that Britain now finds itself in because it sought the opinions of the people who knew nothing about what they were voting for outside their own limited scope. Britain is now in a mess because the government of the day usurped on it’s responsibility to govern and manage but instead sought council from the majority. What is the point of having a team of managers if all they can do is make decisions that reflect public opinion. The only thing that Brexit has been good for is to demonstrate the the errors of judgment by allowing majority rule. Unfortunately the composition of society is biased towards having damaging opinions or under educated viewpoints. Never again should the people be consulted about matters of such importance. In life there are leaders and followers and there is a good reason for that as this has clearly demonstrated. Democratic principles should be used wisely and only to elect managers and representatives who have the skills required to make the decisions.

Parliament is doing a great job protecting the interests of the UK

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

If you shop at Aldi or Lidl then you should certainly not be supporting Brexit

If you currently shop at either Aldi or Lidl it would appear that you are a shopper that likes to find the best value for the best price so if you fall into this category then you should certainly not be supporting Brexit. 

Brexit will lead to higher prices even in these supermarkets. the estimated increase of prices of goods from the European Union is likely to be between 5-10% therefore you can expect to pay around 10% more for your shopping from these supermarkets. So if your average weekly shopping amounts to £100 that’s and extra £10 a week. £520 increase alone on your weekly shopping bill.
