On 16/09/19 Boris Johnson turned up for talks in Luxembourg with the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, with what amounted to an empty briefcase ( meaning that there were no new proposals to consider despite having pledged to Angela Merkel last month that he would be ready to offer a new set of proposals within a 30 day time frame). So what does this tell us about Boris Johnson’s strategy for leaving the EU? Well in my opinion it reveals that he is either insane or that he is just creating a huge bluff. So why would Bodge-it Johnson and the Tories want to create a huge bluff and who are they trying to bluff. Well certainly not the EU Commission who are now in no doubt at all that the Tories (not the UK) want to leave the EU with no deal at all. No instead they are trying to bluff and deceive the British Public into believing that they are interested in a deal with the EU when in reality what they really want is a ‘no deal Brexit’ from the EU. Have you ever wondered why the Tories are so keen to push ahead with ‘a no deal 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? Perhaps Brexit is just a smokescreen for some other plans the Tories have for the UK.
Boris Johnson and the Tories are being deceitful about Brexit negotiations whereby a no deal Brexit might better suit their plans for the UK
Well in my opinion 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. A recession in the UK enables the Tories to bring about changes to wage structures, an opportunity to scrap/abandon the minimum wage, workers rights, conditions of service and the list goes on. Traditionally Conservatism and Conservative policies have reacted to conditions of recession with the introduction of severe Austerity measures. Thatcherism pursued openly and helped bring about high levels of unemployment in order to increase competition for work and to drive down wages to bare minimums whilst also swinging a hatchet at the Benefits Systems which she saw as an additional burden. Now it would appear that Boris Johnson and those that stand behind him such as the likes of Jacob Rees Mogg want to return to those bad old days. The condescending Rees Mogg in particular, who resembles a Victorian in every aspect of his personality and demeanour, would like to see the working classes put in their place which would be for him in a Victorian Slum if he could gain personally from it. The Tories secret agenda is therefore a return to Thatcherite values in order to exploit the working classes in order to pursue the idea of a low wage economy. A ‘no deal Brexit’ gives them this opportunity to bring this about and seemingly at the will of, and with the seal of approval of the British people. The Tories are duping the British public into falling into this trap. they intend to make a mug of us all.
The Tories still love the idea of having a low wage Economy
Thatcherism was always keen to obtain and maintain a low wage, high unemployment economy where people were falling over one another to obtain work which assisted employers in driving down wages and working conditions to a bare minimum. High levels of unemployment ensured that there was a large available workforce which was also disposable by eroding conditions of work. This was Thatcherism at work. Now the possibility of Brexit has made all of this possible and available again to the Tories, who’s vision for Britain is about having and maintaining a low wage economy which they see as preferable because it may make Britain competitive in the World economy again. Yes it might but at what price?
Tories vision for UK is a return to the conditions of the Victorian era guided by Thatcherite economic principles
The likely result of Brexit may be a devaluing of our Economy and the destabilisation of our current wage structures. We may be forced to accept unsuitable trade arrangements that favour the other countries that we deal with, but that don’t suit or are much less favourable to ourselves. Our Economy will struggle and there will be job losses. This may suit the Tories who favour this type of economic climate forcing wages down to make ourselves competitive in the world economy is something that the Tories have encouraged and longed for since the Thatcher Era of British Politics. This type of economic climate could force us to abandon the Minimum Wage for example ( which was much resisted and opposed by the Tories prior to it’s introduction). High unemployment will be a likely consequence of a failing economy and under such circumstances there will be pressures to abandon the Minimum Wage as economic growth is stifled. As a result of withdrawal from the EU workers protection rights may become eroded across the board further assisting the Tories in their quest to make us a low wage economy again. Under such circumstances the human costs will be tragic with people loosing: jobs, income, opportunity; their homes being repossessed and living under generally oppressive conditions of a high inflation Economy with high levels of unemployment. The social costs will be negative and immense impacting on future generations who will be robbed of opportunity and futures. Is this what you want for your children I would ask every British Citizen to consider?
Under the Tories we have seen more homelessness on our streets and an assault on the Benefits System. They now want to erode conditions of work to resemble conditions of the Victorian Era by seeking to obtain higher levels of unemployment by supporting Brexit which will result in an Economic Slump for Britain. Brexit now offers the Tories an opportunity to return to these values and re-instate Thatcherite Economic Principles again by stealth rather than by public appeal or choice. This is the the Tories Secret Agenda and the reason that they are so keen to press ahead regardless of the true consequences with these stupid Brexit plans.
