The idea if so called ‘ levelling up’ is just a slogan and a lie made to diffuse the power of real Socialist Economic Principles. British people have begin to recognise the failures of the Tories privatisation strategies and have begun to realise that there must be alternatives. Unfortunately the Conservative Party has also latched on to this understanding and has seen it’s own Achilles Heel and it’s own demise at the sight of this movement away from right wing politics. To prevent this the Tories have developed a new strategy to reinvent themselves by partially proclaiming that they are the Party of levelling up and therefore self proclaiming that they are the political party of Broad appeal. However this is both a misrepresentation and a downright lie. They offer nothing new except the hollow and meaningless slogan. The only levelling up to be done in Britain is by a political party willing to offer the real power of real and meaningful Socialist Economic Principles: this is something that the Tories are totally unwilling to do. In order to diffuse the potential of real Socialist Economic Principles the Tories are pretending to offer something similar: which they are not. All they are doing is offering smoke and mirrors.
Boris Johnson’s environmental credibility was exposed as fraudulent yesterday by the derogatory comments he published in the Sun newspaper.
Sadly I cannot understand why his terms of reference were not picked up and discussed more fully in the general media. In Johnson’s belief ithe announcement was made to give more weight to his credibility as an environmental campaigner but in reality it simply exposed him as a fraud who believes that those with environmental concerns belong to a class of hippies who basically walk around in sandals and who are all obviously vegetarian in Johnson’s eyes. To have his utter garbage pedalled by the Sun is really no surprise because Johnson knows who his mindless audience is and as such is pandering to their prejudices as well. To have these kind of beliefs and assumptions coming from our Prime Minister is unhelpful and not the kind of language that helps to unify us all behind a valid and urgent cause. It makes a mockery of and belittles the debate on the environment and polarises one side against another and it is now quite obvious in which camp Boris Johnson actually has a foot in.
PM Boris Johnson is claiming victory for the deal struck with the EU but isn’t all this, including the run up to the deal, just posturing. The whole thing has just been posturing or more clearly just a Pantomime from start to finish. There never was doubt that a deal was going to be done because it had to be done to save face. A no deal would certainly have kicked the Tories into political oblivion by an act of suicide. Now in truth the whole exercise just looks like a vehicle used by Boris Johnson to ouwst Theresa May and obtain leadership and power in a egotistical political quest that smacks of ambition more than to be a political servant to the will of the people.
So in the run up to the deal we witnessed tough talk but it was all just empty posturing done as an act of showmanship. It was a complete act but equally transparent like the script of a Pantomine. The whole thing smacked of being rehearsed and all the characters were transparent. The truth is that Bodge it simply had no choice other than to strike some kind of deal. The EU would also have understood this but went along with the show almost like an audience at a Pantomime, but all the while ensuring that they would be the real winners. So how does the deal compare to what was promised? From what I have read it doesn’t bear much semblance to what was actually promised. It puts Northern Ireland in jeopardy of seeking actual independence from the UK and could mean a reintroduction of the tensions and troubles as the possibility of a unified Ireland takes focus. Goods in the UK are likely to be more expensive as a result of added red tape. Fisheries have been thrown to the lions as the sacrifice for retaining tariff free trading. Not to mention the chaos for businesses and movement that will happen as a result of leaving a mere week (less if you take into account the holidays) to sort out all the additional details and protocol required, and all because Boris Johnson and the government wanted to sort out the deal in the lowest possible profile hoping that it would slip by largely unnoticed. ‘Bodge it’ was in a tight corner but as usual he is attempting to claim victory where in actual fact there has been none at all. The reality is that the whole thing has been a rather embarrassing fiasco showing up, Boris Johnson, ‘ Bodge-it’ and his Government for what they are:incompetent.
Brexit was not a quest for Sovereignty it became a vehicle for personal political ambition and power
The electorate were promised a Brexit Deal which now looks like a lie because there clearly was no ‘Oven Ready Deal’ there at all. The electorate were clearly misled about Brexit and hence about the consequences of a no deal scenario.
The Tories now need to be taken to account on misleading the public. A no deal will be hugely consequential to the British economy and to the Tories who have to take the blame for mismanagement of the whole fiasco. The blame can be traced back to the incompetence of Cameron who mooted the whole idea in the first place. There is no one else to blame for the consequences of a no deal except the Tories and Bodge it himself in particular. No deal will cost jobs and lead to misery and a recession. The Tories will not be able to weather the storm that is coming.
Now that Brexit is done well in a manner of speaking, and Bodge-it has declared that Britain is now open for business you might, after all the talk up and hype, have expected to see much more interest from the rest of the world outside Europe. However Britain is open for business: but no one is queuing up seems to be the reaction. Britain is open for business but no one is particularly interested. Could be as I previously predicted that now we have departed from the EU others will wait to see how desperate we are before approaching us with their exploitative deals. Well that’s just business :always looking for the best deal. After all it is 47 years since we were on our own and the world has changed during that time. It’s like an adult revisiting a place from childhood. Things look similar but at the same time so different to how you remembered them. Places are often so much smaller than in your memories of them but the real reality is that we are just bigger and we feel just too big to fit in now. Let’s hope it is not a similar experience for the UK. The world market may be smaller than what we actually remember of it 47yrs ago. We have been promised a Utopia by various politicians but we may be forced to remember that we are really quite isolated on a small island just outside Europe in which the rest of the world has relatively little interest in.
The Conservative Party Political Broadcast last night was cringe worthy in true Boris style. It was more like a confessional and featured some sap that was prepared to go on national TV and admit that he had betrayed his working class roots by admitting to having voted Tory in the last election. The style of the interview was like a confessional having admitted to having committed the ultimate sin by voting Tory. Then to add to the public humiliation and embarrassment he then actually got to meet the ‘devil’ himself. The message seemed to be that you live on even after committing the ultimate sin and the devil welcomes sinners. The whole set up was so false and again deviates from serious politics in true Bodge-it style. That poor bloke who appeared in that garbage is going to have to live with that for the rest of his life and live with the knowledge of his very public betrayal of his working class background. No matter how you want to look at it, it is still wrong. Please do not wrestle with your demons in public it is embarrassing!
‘Let’s get Brexit done’ the General Election 2019 mantra from the Tories is just an attempt to dumb down the General Election 2019 into a single issue election. The reason they are doing this is primarily to avoid scrutiny of the key areas where the Tories have let down the British people whilst they have been in government and that amounts to every single area of policy. The Tories have failed Britain whilst in government in every single way possible. It was the Tories under Cameron that introduced this whole debacle. Now they are attempting to avoid proper scrutiny of their miserable failings by attempting to bring this General election down to a single issue Election. Don’t let them get away with it. The Tories should be held accountable for their miserable performance whilst in government by stating very clearly that we don’t want them back in power. Let’s get Brexit done should really be interpreted as let’s get Brexit dumb.
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.
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
Boris Johnson, or as i prefer to call him, ‘Bodge-it Johnson’ has won the Conservative Party Leadership Contest to become Britain’s next Prime Minister can anything really be more ridiculous and embarrassing for Britain? The whole thing just smacks of desperation really in that the Tories were unable to find anyone more suitable really just speaks volumes about the lack of talent and ambition in the Conservative Party at this time. Instead they are willing to make an uncalculated gamble with the welfare of the British Economy by placing their faith in a recklessness and self seeking, self promoting, bungling and baffooning bodger. Tories need to go before they do any more harm to the UK. They are incompetent in government. This is the 3rd change of Prime Minister since they came into power. If they cannot even select their own leader wisely without having to make multiple attempts to do it correctly then how can they seriously be trusted to govern the UK? I suspect that this will not be the last leadership contest that we witness from this shambles.
Unfortunately since these events in the Conservative Party Leadership battle took place which incidentally Mr Johnson won and the subsequent General Election which the Tories led by Boris Johnson also won ( or another way of looking at it may be that this was the Election that the Labour Party lost, or that this was the Election that the right-wing bigots, who generally have no interest at all in politics, actually did come out to vote in for the first time ever to ensure the sucesss of a right wing political agenda being pedalled and promoted by the Boris Johnson and the Tories in an election that was basically a single issue agenda and debate). Can British politics get any more embarrassing and any more right wing?
