Nicola Sturgeon of the SNP should move aside because she is not doing Scotland any favours at the moment

Nicola Sturgeon of the SNP should move aside because she is not doing Scotland any favours at the moment. She claims to have the interests of Scotland and Scottish people to heart but in fact she is the worst thing that could happen to Scotland at the moment because she and the SNP are powerless to stop Brexit happening. Her obsession with devolution for Scotland is putting Scotland at risk of departure from the EU which is not the outcome favoured by most Scottish voters. However alone the SNP are powerless to prevent Scotland’s departure from the EU and a likely ‘No-deal Brexit’. If she cared about Scotland shouldn’t she put her ambitions for devolution aside for the moment and deal with the bigger issue regarding Scotland’s imminent departure from the EU along with the rest of the UK. Step aside Sturgeon and let a bigger more national party handle this bigger issue. You can always take up your cause and quest again at a later stage. The crisis facing Scotland and the UK is very real and needs to be dealt with by a Party that can challenge and defeat the Tories in a General Election. This position cannot be achieved by a single issue party with a regional agenda. Sturgeon’s position and presence is actually assisting the Tories and thereby has grave consequences for Scotland.

The UK faces a one-sided trade deal with the USA with Trump dictating terms to an isolated Britain

The UK faces a one-sided trade deal with the USA after it leaves the EU without a deal. To be sure Trump will use this situation to dictate terms which are more favourable to the USA than they would be to the UK. Trump is after all a businessman who will see opportunity when it arises. The UK will be alone and isolated and desperate after a ‘No-deal Brexit’. Basically we will have no negotiating powers to draw upon and Trump will exploit this to his advantage. This is just the way of the world and the UK will be assisting this situation by leaving the EU without a deal in place. Thus far Bodge-it has failed to get any real commitments from the USA regarding future trade other than a gentleman’s agreement which is not binding. The USA has not given firm assurances and seem to be waiting to see what happens which could turn to their advantage if Britain looks desperate and that is why they are offering Bodge no real assurances. Meanwhile Bodge-it has very little left of the 30 days he promised Angela Merkel after which he said that he would be in a position to present a viable alternative to the ‘Backstop’ to the EU. That meeting with Merkel took place on 21/08/19 so he has basically reached the half way point and still there is no sign of any new proposals coming forward to move the process along.

Bodge-it is prepared to betray the Irish with a ‘No Deal Brexit’ exit

The purpose of the ‘Backstop’ was to prevent a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. That was the purpose of the negotiations with the EU that Theresa May’s government set up. A ‘No Deal Brexit’ will basically guarantee that a hard border is set up.

The quickest way to guarantee a hard border in Ireland will be through a ‘No Deal Brexit’ 

The most surefire way to get a hard border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland will be through a no deal Brexit. If the Backstop is the only method available of preventing this situation then arguments against the backstop will be counterproductive and a no deal Brexit exit will in fact be a betrayal of the Irish leading to a hard border between the 2 parts of Ireland.

Can you afford Brexit? Has anyone told you how much Brexit will cost you?

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

Bodge, the childish megalomaniac, thinks that by sulking he will get his own way & make Europe give in

Bodge-it thinks that by sulking he will get his own way and Europe will just give in to his demands. Well this is a fine strategy and one more worthy of a kindergarten and really less becoming of a so called statesman or Prime Minister. Meanwhile it has given Bodge the chance to pretty much resume his role of London Major and that means pretty much going around doing nothing much at all. This is what Bodge-it does best of course. Now he has taken to going around with his imaginary chequebook promising everyone large sums of cash in an attempt to please everyone and buy his election votes.

Putting a childish megalomaniac in charge of the country and the Brexit negotiations is irresponsible

The British must like a bad deal

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?

The SNP (Scottish National Party) are powerless to stop Brexit

The SNP (Scottish national Party) are powerless to stop Brexit and they will never be in a position to do so. In fact they are partially accountable for the success of the Tories in the General Election of 2017 and they continue to prop the Tories up in power in the UK. The SNP will never be in a position to govern the UK because they are primarily a regional Party. In fact the SNP is actually assisting the Tories by splitting the vote. This suits the Tories more than it suits Labour. As a result they have helped elect a political party that is actually detrimental to Scotland at the moment because they are assisting the Tories and helping them to hold on to power in the UK. As a result Scotland faces the unpopular scenario of leaving the EU with the rest of the UK. A vote for the SNP has resulted in a vote to keep the Tories in power.

Scottish devolution should be put on hold to deal with the more urgent matter of Brexit.
