Public Services workers deserves better pay which side are you on


Here is all us should not forget, the next time MPs and Councillors ask for your vote ask them which they voted on Public Services pay

London Mayor was right to call on Theresa May to appoint commissioners to run Kensington and Chelsea Council after its leader resigned over the Grenfell Tower fire as public trust could not be restored by other members of the council, residents quite rightly felt desperately neglected and wanted action. It is understood that Kensington and Chelsea have chosen a new council leader. Nicholas Paget Brown will continue to be in place until 19 July when Elizabeth Campbell takes over as new leader.
I’m glad that Justice Minister David Lidington has complete confidence of Sir Martin Moore-Bick(Grenfell Tower Public inquiry chairman) is prepared to be very broad when investigating the causes of the fire. He will be looking at the construction which dates back to the 1970s when the tower was built to examine warnings that may have been missed. It’s a pity that the inquiry will not include the social issues in Kensington and Chelsea. However, I have more confidence in Emma Dent Caod Labour Member Of Parliament said that Sir Martin Moore – Brick was a “Technocrat who lacked credibility and the victim lawyers representing some of the families called for him to quit.
It transpires the government has ordered a taskforce to take over parts of Kensington and Chelsea Council in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire. The council has been heavily criticised for its handling of the disaster on 14 June that killed around 80 people and still counting.
Weak and wobbly Maybot promises housing would be offered by Wednesday 5 July 2017 to those by offering temporary accommodation but only nine have so far been accepted and many are still in hostels. The Grenfell Response Team allegedly claimed 139 formal offers have been made. But North Kensington Law Centre which represents many victims, said some had been offered homes in other towers, other areas, or without enough rooms.

English Local Authorities a £5.8bn funding gap by 2020 without new sources of revenue, council leaders are warning. Services are running on a shoestring and councils must be at the front of the queue for extra cash. Lord Porter(LGA) argue they must be free to raise more council tax and keep all businesses rate income.
Headteachers in England are calling on MPs for answers on school funding shortage saying that they are still no closer to knowing their budgets. About 4,000 heads across 17 councils, mostly in southern England wrote to their member of parliament warning that schools face job loses and cuts to subjects. They say that the current levels of school funding is unsustainable.
Here is another U-Turn from the Conservatives manifesto scrap free school meals Nick Gibb(School Minister) is now saying the government would retain the existing provision having listened very carefully to the views of parents checkout Conservatives manifesto on Restricting free lunches to infants from poorer homes with free breakfast for all primary school pupils funded instead
It was alleged to save £650M a year but was left out of the queens speech
What a joker the chancellor of the exchequer has become insisting that the pay policy has not changed and the right balance must continue to be struck in terms of what is fair for workers and taxpayers and he understood people were weary after seven years of austerity. He rejects calls to take the foot off the pedal. Government must hold its nerves in the face of calls for a different path of higher taxes and borrowing.
Notice how David Cameron joined the debate in defence of Maybot by stating opponents of fiscal discipline are selfish not compassionate. Those who believed in sound finances were wrongly painted as uncaring. The exact reverse is true giving up sound finances isn’t being generous. He was the former Prime Minister who introduced the pay cap for public sector.
Demonstrators marched against the UK government’s economic policies which started from BBC Broadcasting House to Parliament Square. All of a sudden senior ministers are calling to lift the 1% pay cap, but don’t hold your breath can’t see it happening at the present time as the chancellor of the exchequer is saying on yer bike and wait to the autumn budget. It’s no wonder why public service workers feels undervalued and leaving the services to either set up their own consultancy or work abroad to put food on the table.
All well and dandy, you may think what about those who has not seen an increase on state benefits in line with inflation as food prices, children uniform, and cost of living increases. Some people may think those people on state benefits receive enough already. The truth is those who pass judgement don’t know the full facts as to why they are on benefits as each case should be judged on its merits as one side does not fit all. There is a job shortage in the country to employ skilled workers and unskilled workers and the situation will get worse before it gets better. Instead successful Governments are happy to bash the unemployed to gain votes as this seen as vote winners.
Nasty Party has admitted that they have to change hard to win over young power who voted Labour in June’s General Elections. Damian Green is on a mission to tell his party after losing their majority to form a government.
It’s been alleged by John Chapman(former chief of staff) Maybot had implemented “red lines” in Brexit talks and has hamstrung David Davis on European Court of Justice and among other things. It is further alleged that Theresa May would not get a Brexit deal through Parliament unless she showed more flexibility. This sounds like a warning to David Davis if you want my job as leader of Conservative Party I’m ensuring that I will give you a very hard time and ware you down to keep my job. Therefore taking all into account I feel that public service workers deserve more than 1% pay rise

Tories sold their souls to the devils


Here is short verse of Shelley:

‘Rise like Lions after slumber
In unvanquishable number—
Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you—
Ye are many—they are few.’

I had fond memories of one of my uncles who would take a book of the self, the book was full of dust he would clean the cover of the book with a clean cloth then he would sit us down to read the poem.
Andy Howe sums it eloquently in his article in Labour Uncut about high Labour expectations http://labour-uncut.co.uk/2017/06/28/expectations-for-labour-are-high-policy-is-the-way-for-jeremy-corbyn-to-meet-them/
Tories voted against Labour amendment to stop cuts to police, firefighters and paramedics and to end the pay cap on public sector workers including nurses. The Tories and DUP cronies got their majority to block Labour. Result – 309 – 323 (Majority 14) These Tories are not worthy of your vote and their words mean nothing to our brave firefighters, police, paramedics, nurses and public sector workers, next time the Tories seek your vote use every opportunity remind them of our public sector workers. Remember when Theresa May told a struggling nurse there was no ‘magic money tree?’
The Prime Minister has scraped together £1bn to spend on a deal with the DUP – but just 24 days ago she told a struggling nurse money doesn’t grow on trees
In the closing days of the election campaign, Theresa May told anyone who would listen that there was no ‘magic money tree’.
Some noted that the Prime Minister appears to have found one, because she’s managed to scrape together £1 billion to help her cling on to power.
She’s promised the DUP vast sums of cash to spend on projects in Northern Ireland, in return for which they’ve promised to prop up her minority government.
But just 24 days ago, she told a struggling nurse – who had seen real terms pay cuts for eight years – there was “no magic money tree.”
During a special edition of BBC Question Time, the nurse asked the Prime Minister: “My wage slips in 2009 reflect exactly what I see today – so how can that be fair in light of the job that we do?”Mrs May replied: “I recognise the job that you do, but we have had to take some hard choices across the public sector in relation to public sector pay restraint.
“We did that because of the decisions we had to take to bring public spending under control, because it wasn’t under control under the last Labour government.
“And I’m being honest with you in terms of saying we will put more money into the NHS, but there isn’t a magic money tree that we can shake that suddenly provides for everything that people want.”
Tory Defence Secretary Michael Fallon denied the Prime Minister telling a struggling nurse that money doesn’t grow on trees was “patronising.”
He said: “She was honest about pay restraint within the NHS.”
He said using the phrase “magic money tree” was drawing attention to the “Christmas tree of presents” inside the Labour manifesto that are not costed.”
Hear Ye, hear Ye, on this day 26 June 2017 Conservatives sold their souls to the devil in return for a sweetheart deal viz Confidence and Supply for the sum of £1b to save face in parliament. Thou art a boil for doing this deal with the Democratic Unionist Party https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_Unionist_Party
Thou art right to be outraged at the idea that such nasty, regressive bigots as the DUP should wield disproportionate influence over our government, but while people are waking up to how batshit northern Irish politics is, I feel they don’t realize how neglected and poverty stricken it is. Fully concur that the whole of the UK needs investment in its infrastructure, but it feels like dog-in-a-manger politics to begrudge investment that the poorest region of the UK so desperately needs.

I’m not surprised about May’s disgusting deal with the DUP. She thinks she has hoodwinked us all into believing she thinks that her deal is anything other than a shameful bribery to let her remain in power. £1bn for ten votes! Doesn’t that make you rage. Consider this it cost us around £16.66 for each individual UK taxpayer to fund the Tories clinging onto power. Theresa May said she wants EU citizens living in the UK to stay after Brexit as she announced plans designed to put their “anxiety to rest”. All EU nationals lawfully resident for at least five years will be able to apply for “settled status” and be able to bring over spouses and children.
Those EU citizen who come after an as-yet-unagreed date will have two years to “regularise their status” but with no guarantees. Prime Minister told the Commons that she wanted to give reassurance and certainty to the 3.2m EU citizens in the UK as well as citizens of the three EEA countries and Switzerland who she said were an “integral part of the economic and cultural fabric” of the UK.
However, she said any deal on their future legal status and rights must be reciprocal and also give certainty to the 1.2m British expats living on the continent after the UK leaves the EU. It’s all silent from Tory voters and members are they happy to purchase votes, and  that each vote from the DUP to prop up the Tories will cost the UK taxpayer £100 Million pounds to the DUP a BILLION pounds, yes a feckin BILLION pounds that could be used for education, or the NHS, or to invest in this country to get people back to work, and with Brexit coming up don’t we need that money for all of the UK. Tory members please tell us, is all this ok with you lot, and can you confirm that this Is what you voted for. So there is a magic money tree after all, but only if you’re a Tory buying votes from extremists..
One wonder how the Tories would feel if this £ BILLION pounds was going to the EU where at least we get something back for our money..
Honestly, whilst I feel like using stronger language I have to be mindful when a Government abuses its people in this way, a Government is so arrogant with YOUR money, when a Government buys votes for a BILLION pounds with money we so desperately need, when a Government takes the piss like this then there really is no other option, and it will be their own doing. People are sick of this constant abuse of our money by greedy arrogant Tory politicians.
Surely if the Conservative government were being honest and upfront, the other parties would by logic, support their efforts to govern, if it was in the Nation’s interest to do so. What is it that the Conservative minority government are afraid of when roughly half of the population are represented by other MP’s?
Why do they need to ruin their chances of a comeback at a subsequent general election by prostituting themselves to  the likes of the DUP-a party known for its links to protestant terrorism in Northern Ireland and for its anti LBG rights and its anti-abortionist views. Even the Conservative leader in Scotland has her reservations because of her own sexuality and those newly elected Scottish MP’s are now going to be in a dilemma when it comes to their government’s need for votes. The SNP will be having a field day with this over the coming weeks and months. It is a well-known truism that the Tories when faced with a problem they just throw money at it. One can see that behaviour in the antics of people like Johnson and other ex bullingdon club boys- I call them boys for that’s all they are in their level of maturity.
To resolve their dilemma at present the money they have slung in the direction of the DUP pales into insignificance when one looks at the amount of money they are going to have to dish out to appease the rest of the mainland populace. Their hope that they can ride out the storm of protests is likely to fail, as the security services, already hard pressed to contain society is bursting at the seams with discontent and skill and manpower shortages.
I expect that during the next few months, if they survive there will be emergency legislation passed and malcontents, disaffected and the like who strongly criticise this cuckoo government will see efforts to close down their avenues of dissent. Corbyn’s popularity has reached the point of no return and as long as he does not fall into the Beatles trap of becoming ‘more popular than Jesus’, his little red manifesto will stand the test of time.
He has some excellent people around him. I watched Keir Starmer yesterday with admiration at how he clinically destroyed the three Brexiteers and how he parried sniping from the tories so that their ammo puffed like damp squibs in the chamber. These people, rather than Labour will now feel the pressure as the Tory controlled main stream media begin their hatchet jobs. Corbyn, being the leader he is knows how they work and is no doubt primed and ready to keep opening that DUP sore until it festers in the body of the Tories and they become too weakened through the political infection that they finally capitulate.
They cling desperately to May’s apron strings but I fear that it will all be in vain as she herself is so weakened by her recent actions following on from flawed decisions. We just wait and adopt a siege mentality and sooner or later we will starve them out.
As you may know, the Conservative Party reached an agreement with the DUP today to ensure that they are propped up and kept in power. This has cost us £1.5bn. Questions need to be answered as to how much Wales will now receive outside of the Barnett Formula as well. It is unfair if one part of the country receives more funds just to prop up a minority government. Tim Connor wrote an excellent article about young people see article below:

After weighing all the evidence I have to say it loud and clear that Tories sold their souls to the devils

Theresa May Uturn


Drums will be beating very hard from now to the 8 June as General Elections takes place as voters goes to the polling station until it close at 10pm. 

All the political parties will be stating their case to the nation why they should be voted into office. This will be one of the prediction I said three weeks before David Cameron resigned as Leader of Conservatives and Prime Minister that a snap General Elections will be called the moment that Brexit was announced David Cameron went to the nation. I was laughed at, now I’m having the last laugh and it’s very loud. Theresa May took over the leadership of the Conservatives and  became Prime Ministers. She does not have a mandate by the nation. I was not surprised by the decision by Theresa May to hold snap General Elections to give her a mandate.

It’s been reported that around 50,000 disabled people have had specially adopted cars taken away since changes to disability benefits in 2013. The mobility scheme entitles disabled people to lease a specialty adopted new car, scooter or powered wheelchairs using part of their benefit. It alleged by a charity that around 51,000 people have had their vehicles taken away since the benefits taken away were changed in 2013.

It is alleged that two private firms that access people with claiming disability benefits will receive nearly 200m more than officials had originally expected figures suggest. The government had estimated that Atos and Capita would earn £512m for Personal Independence Payments (PIPs) assessments between 2013/2017.

Who would believe that people with learning disabilities are missing out on vital health checks this includes blood pressure, cancer screening, and mental health assessments. Only about half of women with learning disabilities received breast cancer screening last year, compared with about 70% of eligible women overall.

Millions of students and former students in England and Wales will face a sharp increase in interest rates on tuition fees and maintenance loans. The interest rates are linked to inflation and are set to continue to rise by about a third from 4.6% to 6.1% this will be enforced in the autumn alongside an increase in tuition fees to £9,250 for universities in English.

It is purported that Housing problems in England are causing people to suffer anxiety, depression and panic attacks.

Of people who had experienced housing worries within the past five years, 69% said their mental health was affected, suggests research for the charity.

The researchers interviewed 1,050 people from across England who reported poor housing, rent problems or being threatened with eviction.

The polling company ComRes carried out online interviews for the report in February this year with a representative sample of 3,509 adults from across England.

Of these, about 30% or 1,050 people, said they had experienced housing problems within the last five years.

Among this group the most common mental health problems were:

  • stress – 64%
  • anxiety – 60%
  • sleep problems – 55%
  • depression – 48%
  • panic attacks – 30%

About one in 20 had visited their GP because of their mental state and a worrying minority had contemplated suicide.

Shelter says that if these figures were replicated across the whole of England’s population, one million people would have sought medical intervention because of mental health issues brought on by poor housing or worries about eviction or affording rent or mortgage payments over the past five years.

Additionally, one in six said housing worries had also affected their physical health, causing symptoms like hair loss, nausea, exhaustion, dizzy spells and headaches, while damp or mouldy homes can exacerbate respiratory conditions like asthma, says the charity. Telephone interviews with 20 inner-city GPs highlighted the extent to which housing has an impact on mental health.

Housing difficulties can be particularly harsh for people “on the line of coping or not coping. Then, they really do tip over the edge”, said one London GP.

A Sheffield GP said parents could become depressed because “they’re unable to provide a nice environment for their children”.

“In the children, they tend to get a little bit, sometimes withdrawn, sometimes a bit anxious and angry.”

London GP Andrew Carr said housing was a major contributing factor to mental illness.

“With evictions on the rise in my area, I’ve seen people with acute anxiety or severe stress because they’re facing the threat of losing their home.”

It is alleged that around four million homeowners in England do not own the freehold to property new government estimates have revealed.

The government promised action, saying it will end leaseholds for new housing developments.

Well there is saying which comes to mind ‘A promise is a comfort to a fool’. This is on the grounds of government makes all sorts of promises in order to gain your votes. In a nutshell they are all talk but no action.

To be frank I would rather believe the Labour Party Shadow Housing Minister John Healey position who said those leaseholders are currently ‘unprotected from rip off raises in ground rents from developers or management companies and under a Labour Government will end this sharp practice.

It is alleged that our dedicated nurses are being protected with affordable pay and their jobs. What a load of hogwash if this was the case why is the government are cutting funding to our NHS and it’s no wonder the Royal College of Nursing are assessing the mood for strike action in protest over pay. The union are asking 270,000 of its members across the U.K. whether they want to strike before deciding issuing a formal ballot on the grounds of pay freezes and caps on pay raise since 2010 have effectively led to a 14% pay cut due to the rising cost of living. This government just don’t get it, claiming that they are investing £1.4billon to ensure all children to get help they need. Children as young as four are suffering from mental health problems such as panic attacks, anxiety, and depression which is being reported by teachers. A survey done by the teaching union NASUWT suggest almost all of the 2,000 who responded say they had come into contact with mentally ill pupils. Members of the teaching union suggest schools are struggling to access enough support to deal with the issue.

When I look at all the u-turns that Theresa May has done such as:

  1. Not wanting to call a snap General Elections, she decided to call one.
  2. EU Citizens Right to remain during her leadership campaign she refuses to guarantee the right of EU nationals living in the UK, now she says they are allowed to stay.  
  3. Jeremy Hunt said that foreign doctors are not allowed to stay she refuse to say three times that they are allowed to stay.  
  4. Foreign Staff list purposed by Amber’s plan to force companies to publish how many foreign staff they employ has been kicked to the wilderness.  

For this reason the Conservatives with all the u turns its no wonder why they are in disarray and they cannot be trusted to run the nation. I would rather have a Labour Government and urge voters to create a political storm by voting Labour on 8 June.

 

 

Queen Theresa May really gives a flying monkeys about working class,small businesses, or homelessness


Theresa May is considered to be the hot potato in all the press releases Conservatives are “no longer a low-tax party”. It further says half of those surveyed are less likely to vote Tory after Wednesday’s Budget. The conservatives bare the scares of the miners’ strike, ending the manufacturing industries, the dreaded poll tax, selling of council housing, under-funding public services for 18 years,  stop and search, and Hillsborough Disaster to name a few. Over the weekend there was a march with tens of thousands of people including NHS staff, campaigners and union representatives to protest against “yet more austerity” in the health services.

Protesters on the NHS march wanted to draw attention to plans which could see hospital services in nearly two-thirds of England cut back.

So it’s no surprise many NHS services “are on their knees”. I rather trust the union leaders’ word more than the Department of Health alleged it invested an extra £4Bn in NHS.

I just signed the petition calling on the Prime Minister to properly fund the NHS.

For years now, our NHS has been starved of cash. There just isn’t enough money – or enough beds – to care for all of us safely. This January, several people died, stuck on hospital trolleys. They were desperately ill, but left waiting for hours in the corridor of their local A&E. There just weren’t enough beds for them.

This is what happens when the government refuses to fund the NHS properly. If enough of us add our names to a petition today, we can make sure that politicians hear our demand: the NHS needs more money to keep us patients safe. You can read more and sign the petition here:

http://bit.ly/2j99Tcl

This conservative government would have you believe that the sum of £2bn will solve the problems of our social care services, how convenient that they failed to mention that councils are force to increase their council tax by 5-6% to help pay towards social care services.

Welcome back to the year of Thatcherism, under ice queen Theresa May. Public Services are underfunded and councils are left to fend for themselves to raise funds for social care via council tax. Intriguingly the conservatives are now claiming to be the party of the working class and small businesses. Don’t be hoodwinked by the sound bites of the conservatives promoting centre left policies that are Labour policies. They are more interested in fatcats donation to their party.  

Former Tory Chancellor Lord Lamont has spoken out against the current chancellor Philip Hammond by referring to his budget as a “tax raid” on self-employed and “rookie error”. He further went on to say the Conservative election pledge not to increase National Insurance, income tax and VAT was a mistake and Philip Hammond should “drop” the NI increase. 

It now transpires a leak tape recording of a council leader saying he struck a deal with the government before scrapping a 15% council tax hike. No surprises that Ice Queen Theresa May denied any sweetheart deals with Surrey County Council. The question now is who is telling porkies or fake news is it the County Council leader (David Hodge), Theresa May or BBC.

Intriguing times we live in, the big six utility companies increase the price of gas and electricity, food price increase, low income become more dependent on junk food projects, foodbanks, soup kitchens, does Ice Queen Theresa May or Paul Nuttall really gives a flying monkeys about working class and small businesses?

The simple answer has to be be a resounding no they are more interested in fatcats in continuing to donate to the Conservatives.

 

No such thing as a society


Ever notice when you or your family are walking in any city centres there seem to be an increase of homelessness and rough sleepers with begging bowls. Some people will walk pass them, others will put a couple of quid into the begging cup but the vast majority would just walk pass them and roll their eyes. There is a saying “those who knows it feels it”

hbfujrjkg

In recent years we have the failure of the so called the “Big Society” in action, only for the government to try reinvent the big society under the guise of the so called “Share Society”. Let’s examine this for a moment and ask yourselves why are there so much foodbanks, soup kitchens, and junk food projects on the raise, could this be there are many people have become dependent on those services on the grounds of that the government and establishment are not doing enough to address why low incomes are turning to those projects which are low funding with no help from central and local governments or European Funding. Some parts of society are very quick to pass judgment on those people by saying “they brought it on themselves”

Do those high opinionated people really know the root causes of those people who are homeless and rough sleepers to make those assumptions?

Some of the foodbanks, junk food projects, and soup kitchens depend on people’s, churches, and supermarkets donations to help people just to survive or make ends meet by providing those services. To me those are the people who run those projects are the unsung heroes unfortunately the government pays lip services to them instead of helping them to promote those well-deserved projects. Take for instance well established companies puts a bid into the local government funding to help homeless and rough sleepers they make bold claims that they WILL provide a joined up services yet it seems a long wait and being bogged down with red tapes and yet after all of this they received the funding whilst the small projects get nil so much for the so called shared society.

The irony of this is when politicians are standing as candidates whether it’s local or general elections they all turn up to those projects to play lip services which is a insult to the organisers and on the odd occasions at full councils and in parliament opposition parties mention of those projects yet the current government airbrush it over with spin by claiming that they are doing more for homelessness and rough sleepers yet both previous and current governments still have not really addressed the real issues of homelessness and rough sleepers. If there is any white paper floating around there is very little that really mentions homelessness, rough sleepers, food banks, soup kitchens, and junk food projects however more can be done to address this by those project managers to lobby their MPs and local Councillors with their service users. jrtmym6

“Don’t you just like it when some people say “they don’t do politics” They rather go to the pub and spend a few quid on a pint of real ale with their friends. Well every thing involves politics even the very water you drink involves politics this is the hush reality and fact of life and there is no getting away from it.

Some people would say they are do gooders and part of a movement there may be some truths in this this but let’s be very clear they are few of those people around compared to the majority of our society. I could not give a flying monkey whatever their religious beliefs as they help to fill a gap in any community that has a need which the government has consistently fail to address. I feel there is a need for a movement of change to help educate those who close their eyes and walk pass homelessness. Furthermore, there should be a strong ethical policy in place to address this issue of homelessness and rough sleepers with mental health. I really find it ironic that Central Government has cut funding to local government that provide services to address homelessness and people with mental health they are left to fend for themselves in a heartless society which plays in to Maggie Thatcher ideology “No such thing as a society”

 

Second Brexit Challenge to High Court rejected


Who would have thought of Gina Miller would have the courage to take her case to the High Court on the grounds of holding our parliament to account and allowed a vote on Brexit debate?

Who would have thought that the old fart(Donald Trump) against all the odds was elected as the 45th President of the United States of America with the press against him?. 

Congratulations to John Brecow Speaker of the House for his strong opposition to the old fart addressing both houses. See quote below:

“I would not wish to issue an invitation to US President Donald Trump addressing the Houses of Parliament during his state visit to UK.

“Opposition to racism and sexism” were hugely important considerations”

See YouTube:

This is one of the rare occasions I speak in favour or against Jeremy Corbyn but must say I do concur with his statement about the old fart(Donald Trump) travel ban and challenged the Prime Minister at Prime Minister Questions(PMQs) when she went to the United States under the guise of trade deals. I fully support the lifting of ban travel petition on the grounds of the old fart signed the executive order which is against the American constitution to discriminate against a religion.

Furthermore, I congratulate Ed Miliband for securing an emergency debate on the old fart #MuslimBan and Members of Parliament who spoke out against the #MuslimBan. Mark my words if the #MuslimBan goes ahead the next target will be #ChineseBan one kids you not. For the record let me be very clear I have spoken out against the human rights record in China, Russia and other countries which abuse their human rights record is placed on public domain.Britain's opposition Labour Party Leader Ed Miliband speaks at the London Business School in London

If I’m honest I will continue to advocate that Donald Trump does not speak for me. He seems to be living in fantasy land; he is the sort of person who likes to hear his own voice and still thinks he is on a reality TV show to pander to the far right parties and organisations. The founding members of the America constitution will be turn in their graves for the old fart to try overturning the constitution.

The old fart should not be allowed state visit to address both houses and have the red carpet rolled out at the behest of Ice Queen Theresa May just to secure trade deals with our American cousins(American Special Relations).

Frankly with the feeble response from the unelected Prime Minister has convinced me that Boris Johnson is lining himself to secure his leadership challenge of the conservatives party in the event that she falls on her own sword. The daggers are out ready to stab her in the back. Jess Phillips MP once said “she rather stab Jeremy Corbyn in the front and not behind his back”. On this occasion I would place on public record to delete Jeremy Corbyn and replace it with Theresa May. Then reading in between the lines I see Boris Johnson MP operating from behind the scenes to ensure that he gets his pound of flesh by making sure he can secure his leadership challenge when Theresa May falls.jkgkgl

Returning back to the subject in concern over Brexit whilst I fully admire Gina Miller team for taking her case to the High Court to hold parliament to account I must raise my strongest objection in the most strongest possible way for unelected Ice Queen Theresa May(Leader and Prime Minister) Conservative Government to appeal against the verdict of the High Court to the Supreme Court it defiantly a wasting tax payers money which could be sorted out by not appealing to the Supreme Court to get their way instead they landed egg their face.

I’m glad that Emily Thornberry has clarified Labour position will not “frustrate” Brexit. Let me be very blunt Labour MPs should hold the Government to account. Let me further remind all our Labour MPs bluntly they are the official opposition party and they have a duty to their constituents to hold the government account and not let the government to ride shotgun by using their majority. I don’t say this lightly regardless of whichever camp they supported and voted in the referendum. I continue to raise my objections in the most possible way how the government are treating its citizens and caring more for their fatcat donors they rather stick two fingers at us plebs.mholylu

I fully support all opposition parties to put their amendments to the EU notification withdrawal bill to get a better deal but alas all the amendments were voted against with the conservatives majority.

Whilst I acknowledge that passions are very high and like to strike while the iron is hot for a fresh Brexit challenge at the high court for UK to stay in the EU single market arguing that Parliament must approve the UK’s exit from the European Economic Area in the High Court was rejected, they and including myself should continue to channel our energies to lobby their retrospective Members of Parliament to bring about changes before approaching the High Court.

 

Tory Bexit Trojan Horse


I’m happy with Labour position that they took to amend any bill on the article 50 process to withdraw from the EU, this is to ensure Britain maintain access to Europe’s markets, workers’ rights, and environmental measures and continue respect the EU referendum.

Keir Starmer Shadow Brexit Secretary put forward a motion for debate 7 December 2016 calling for details of the strategy with some support from backbenchers of Conservatives. 10 Downing St started playing a game of cat and mouse by accepting Labour opposition motion to force the prime minister to publish a plan before Article 50 is triggered. So why am I not surprised by the establishment for putting forward an amendment to win back those conservative back benchers.

The vote from Labour opposition motion as amended is as follows: Ayes: 448   Noes: 75

Government amendments as follows: Aye: 461 Noes: 89

5 December 2016, the government went to Supreme Court to challenge the High Court decision brought by Gina Miller against the government which last four days on a ruling that it must consult MPs in parliament before triggering article 50. Its 11 justices heard the government appeal against November High Court ruling.

QC (James Eadie) representing the establishment argued to make a decision the ordinary folks would understand in the landmark legal challenge over Brexit. Ministers could trigger Brexit and that there was no basis for Parliament to get the final say. So in a nutshell the establishment can use executive powers to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty and that parliament need not get the final say.

The QC for Gina Miller outlined their evidence that Parliament must be consulted stating that article 50 alone cannot be triggered without the consent of parliament and only Parliament can trigger Article 50. In a nutshell the EU referendum does not give ministers the power to trigger Brexit without consulting parliament. The political significance of June’s vote was irrelevant to the legal battle.

Lord Advocate James Wolffe the significance of June EU referendum was political not legal. He also implied any other Commons votes related to the case. Allowing ministers to trigger Brexit without consulting MPs would violate “basic” principles of constitutional law.

Scotland’s top legal officer has said the Scottish Parliament’s consent is needed before the UK triggers Brexit. He was not arguing Holyrood had a veto, but argued it’s consent was required because of the “significant changes” Brexit would make to its powers.

Lord Neuberger said the case focused on “the process by which those results can lawfully be brought into effects”. The Supreme Court president promised a decision as soon as possible (January 2017)

The histrionic Brexit legal challenge has drawn to a close with a reminder from the Supreme Court that it will not overturn the result of the EU referendum.

To be very frank I’m not sure what way Gina Miller voted in the any of the elections whichever way how she voted is her business. What I admire about her is she took it upon herself to take the establishment to the high court and she won her case based on she strongly believed in. The fact the establishment decided to appeal against the ruling at the Supreme Court. “People should not be afraid of their government, the government should be afraid of their people”. This is what I admire about Gina Miller. gina

However I am very disappointed on the way how haters took it on themselves to abuse and threatened members of parliament and Gina Miller via social media and she had personal bodyguards to protect her at the supreme court they should be ashamed of themselves.

I can’t help the feeling that can of worms been opened up in many ways. It transpires that Jolyon Maugham QC a British Lawyer has launched a drive to raise funds for a court case in Ireland to find out if the process of Britain leaving the EU could be halted. He wants the case to go to the European Court of Justice for the ruling on whether British MPs could reject a Brexit deal after it is done. He is seeking to raise the sum of £70,000 in donations to start the proceedings. The case will also raise the possibility that Article 50 has in fact been triggered already.

Ken Clarke former chancellor fired a warning shot to Ice Queen Theresa May she may not “survive” as prime minister if she sides with hard Brexit MPs. He further warned it would be “pretty catastrophic” to tell the EU we’re just pulling out.

The House of Lords EU Committee said the power would be contained in a treaty between the UK and Ireland, subject to approval from Brussels. The peers stressed that trade between the countries must be safeguarded. Irish and UK citizens should continue to have freedom of movement in the two countries. The power to grant or deny freedom of movement to EU nationals in Northern Ireland should be devolved to Stormount following Brexit.

Remember Gisela Stuart MP who toured the UK with Boris Johnson to campaign to leave EU. Both stood by their battle ram bus if Britain leaves EU the NHS will have 350 Million to spend. Now she wants to have her cake and want to eat it at the same time. Cor blimey wish she could make up her mind up.leave-bus

Gisela Stuart MP Chair of British Future wants a fair cut-off date for any settlement and changes. European nationals living in the U.K. must have a guarantee they can remain in place after Brexit. Three Million Group is demanding assurances people will not be used as “bargaining chips”.

The government says it wants to let the 2.8 million EU nationals stay in the UK, but member states must reciprocate.

The establishment really have their work cut out for them in 2017 the Sunday Times front page issued 11 December 2016 alleging that campaigners will write to the government saying they are taking them to high court to fight to keep the UK in the EU single market. What a lark. David Cameron gives his account of referendum on EU despite it cost him his job as prime minister. He claimed the issue had been “poisoning” British politics and the conservative party and people were frustrated about it. He continued to describe the Brexit vote and Donald Trump’s election in the US as a “movement of unhappiness”.

Well he should not have gone around to all the EU leaders bragging to them that UK will remain in the EU by 70/30. My guess he is regretting this. This reminds me of an old Chinese proverb “It’s only when a person gets into difficulty that one can truly see his heart”. jkgkh

The establishment must make clear whether Britain should go on hard or soft Brexit negotiations with the approval of parliament instead of the government riding shotgun. Whilst I partly concur with the government should not show their hands all parliamentarians should have the right to have input in the way how Brexit should work and put it to another referendum for the nation to accept or decline the plan. Moderate core of Tory voters do not want the party to become “UKIP-lite”

Intriguing, intriguingly imagine for one moment just by pursuing for a hard Brexit would alienate core Conservative voters and cost them the next general election. No doubt this will be good news in some quarters and one that UKIP, Britain First, and British National Party will be jumping up and down shouting for a hard Brexit.

Could this be a natural mystic flowing around that the so called panic mode in Downing Street about government leaks over Brexit negotiations via Tory minister has been carrying notes around to and from Downing Street during their so called Brexit negotiations plans.

Boris Johnson said on Andrew Marr Show that the United Kingdom (UK) should not have to pay “large” sums to European Union (EU) to trade with it after Brexit. The idea of UK paying for tariff-free access for EU’s internal market has been mooted in recent days is pure speculation but if it did any payment had to be sensible.

Boris Johnson has also said that Britain will not seek obstruct European efforts to develop closer defence cooperation after Brexit. If they want to do that, fine, but said countries should ensure they met their NATO commitments. He seems to be contradicting the Defence Secretary Michael Fallon who recently said the UK would oppose the move because it could undermine NATO. This seems like Boris Johnson starting the plotting of the downfall of Ice Queen Theresa May to become the next leader of conservatives.

It is been suggested by Trade Minister Greg Hands that UK could seek a deal which would allow sections of the economy to remain within EU customs union. Officials would be able to choose the type of products to be covered by agreement. The union operates alongside the EU trade area. This came in light of Brexit Secretary (David Davis)said the UK would consider paying for “best possible” single market access.

Ruth Davidson leader of Scottish Conservatives calls on the UK to avoid a “divisive Brexit” and to heal the divisions left by the referendum. The UK remained one of the world’s great liberal democracies. The reputation was being tested with the country conducts itself in the future.

Amber Rudd was speaking in the House of Commons about arrangements after Brexit for EU citizens living in Brexit and there needs to be some form of documentation. So in a nutshell its now becoming very clear that the establishment are playing a dangerous games with EU nationals by telling them to produce their documentation(valid Passport, ID card, marriage certificate, or employers letter) to the state that stay in the UK. This smells of immigration or race card(s) coming into force via the backdoor.

Let’s see now, the Fibdems have woken up to a swollen head by winning the Richmond Park by-election by shafting Zac Goldsmith into second place and our Labour candidate came third. They are claiming that the Fibdems are back in the big time after it fought on the issue of Brexit to oust ex- Conservative Zac Goldsmith. Ouch I’m laughing out loud that my stomach hurts. They now have nine Member of Parliament and already they are saying that they are the real opposition party. Yes dream on Fibdems as voters have not forgotten that your former leader Nick Clegg went into bed with the Conservatives to form a coalition which they paid a very heavy price for it in the 2010 general elections.

I’m under the impression that the establishment (Conservatives) are taking soundings from the business community in what directions they should move forward this good in way. To me it’s clear that Conservatives have no idea how to move forward and this nothing more than a Tory Brexit Trojan Horse as Ice Queen Theresa May is running around like a headless chicken as David Cameron has left his party in the lurch.
