The Conservative Clown Show goes on and on and just keeps giving. The Conservatives have managed to turn both politics and economics into a standing joke. Forget ‘Live at the Apollo’ and just watch the news. Now we hear that their main Clown is to rejoin the Show. The bungling buffoon is coming back so the plot gets even more ridiculous. I have previously highlighted the lack of talent in the Conservative Party and this has been confirmed by recent events. They just can’t think of anyone except to be their leader except a failed Prime Minister. Poor Rishi Sunak who appears to the only one with an ounce of talent and credibility. Sunak was the main man behind Boris Johnson and whilst Johnson was donning the hard hats and pretending to be a working class person it was Sunak who steered the ship economically. Sunak was the sensible one whilst Boris was the Clown performing for the media. Johnson has little grasp on economics and even less grasp on the truth. Without Sunak Johnson was nothing but a buffoon. Johnson is incapable of the serious stuff. Johnson will not be capable of steering a course through the ‘Cost of Living Crisis’.
Johnson has not got things done: Brexit remains unfinished and ‘Levelling up’ was a lie to obtain power
Let’s think about what Boris Johnson has not finished. Brexit remains undone and as a result Northern Ireland has no functioning government because of questions that remain unfinished regarding the Northern Ireland protocol and the questions remaining about the transfer of goods without a hard border with the rest of Ireland. There had also been no evidence of ‘Levelling Up’. As I have said this was always just a slogan and attempt to derail real Socialist values. It was an attempt to steal traditional Labour Party votes and a blatant attempt to mislead by lying to voters with empty promises.
It now appears that Boris Johnson is discombobulated about the interpretation of his own policies whilst in government. What after all is an ‘office gathering’ and how could that be exempt from the rules about gatherings that he and his government imposed during Lockdown. Now we have it confirmed that a party actually took place ( by his own admission) then surely the matter should be handed over to the police to investigate and prosecute those involved.
As a final thought it appears that this Government sit around drinking alcohol whilst they think up and design all these rules regulations and laws: so is it really any wonder that they have such difficulties understanding them themselves?
The idea of so called ‘ levelling up’ is just a slogan and a lie made to diffuse the power of real Socialist Economic Principles. This is how the Tories are using it to divide tradional voting loyalties in an attempt to grab power. There is no substance to their claims that they can level up Britain. The Tories are hinting or trying to convince voters that they are offering some form of socialism which simply isn’t true. Using the ‘levelling up slogan and banner is an attempt to steal ground from various political parties with a bona-fide claim to real Socialist policies. The Tories are obviously pretty scarred of socialism and socialist policies which have become increasingly important to the British voters.

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
Continue reading Boris Johnson’s ‘Oven ready Deal’ turns out to be Brexit Fudge Cake after all
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.
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
