Sold down the river


Well, what a speech that was, wasn’t it? Only an accomplished liar politician could delivery a crock of shit dressed up as a bouquet of roses and get away with it. What an achievement.

So to be certain I understand it all clearly, we’re now leaving the EU in 2019 but not until 2021 or possibly later. During this time we continue to pay billions into a budget we will have no say over, accept free movement despite not being part of the EU, have access to a single market that we would have had access to anyway under WTO rules which would have added billions to our treasury, and will implement any new laws that we have no say in whatsoever. Apparently, this is defined as ‘delivering the will of the people’?

So what happened to ‘no deal is better than a bad deal’? What happened to ‘go whistle’? What happened to the ‘bloody difficult woman’?

The EU has not budged one single inch in the course of these farcical negotiations, so what do we do? Well, seeing who blinks first would have been my way of doing things, but not our Treesa. Oh no, she goes for the full eyelash fluttering capitulation never mind blinking first!

A little while back we had a general election. One of the justifications for this was so that we didn’t have an election in 2018 when Brexit was looming large. So now we offer to delay things for two years so that we have a general election in 2020 just before Brexit in 2021. Maybe there’s some logic in there somewhere, but I can’t see exactly where it might be.

This speech was a backslide of monumental proportions from a Prime Minister with no backbone clearly out to defy the referendum result and keep us in the Fourth Reich at any cost. Fuck knows what she threatened Boris and Gove with in order to get them to support this, but it must have been pretty damning for them to not only to let her get away with it, but to say it was a great speech and openly support it.

There are no negotiations in reality. Barnier and his gang aren’t interested in a deal. They want to punish us and rob us blind. And thanks to Treesa, we really are being sold down the river and flogging a dead horse…

Play the white man…!


Say hello to Anne Marie Morris, the Tory MP for Newton Abbot. Apparently Ms Morris is a racist who has been suspended for the use of unacceptable racist terminology.

So what did she actually say? Well during a discussion on Brexit she used the appalling expression ‘nigger in the woodpile’. Shock! Horror! Not exactly BNP terminology is it or particularly offensive. But this is the 21st century PC where we banned the golliwog on the front of the Robertson jam jar, got rid of the nigger brown paint that my late father-in-law liked to paint his garage with, banned the black and white minstrels and renamed Guy Gibson’s dog in his bio-pic.

It’s bloody nonsense and frankly the so called ‘grown ups’ running this country should be ashamed of themselves for pandering to such nonsense.

I wonder what action they would have taken if Sajid Javid had said that the EU were being unreasonable and should ‘play the white man’? Would that have been unacceptable racist terminology?

No of course it wouldn’t. And why would that be?

Well, quite possibly because he’s not white – and only white people are racists.

To call a spade a spade, I think she’s been sold down the river by a bunch of cretins. There. That’s three racist expressions in the same sentence. Anybody spot them? No – thought not…

How to lose an election…


It’s quite clear that you lot just can’t be trusted to behave while I’m away. I mean, I go off to Namibia for a little cavort in the Kalahari and an election is announced. I pop off for a couple of weeks to Corsica, and come back to find the government completely fucked up. I can’t turn my back for a minute…

Had I been here, this is what I would have advised our illustrious Iron Lady wannabe :

(1) In general elections no governing party should expect themselves to be popular. Somebody has to make decisions in government and what ever they might be, they’re never going to be popular. You’re going to get less votes.

(2) If you’re in power and losing 6 seats is going to cost you your majority, refer to rule one above and don’t bloody well call an election.

(3) Never have an election thinking you can stick to one issue. It ain’t going to happen. William Hague tried it and got hammered. Learn from history.

(4) Don’t put policies in your manifesto that are going to alienate your core vote especially if you then fail to properly think them through and get them across plainly and unequivocably. “Dementia Tax” might have been bollocks, but that’s how it came across.

(5) The UK isn’t America. We don’t elect Prime Ministers like they elect a President. Maybe we should but that’s not the issue. You cannot conduct a Presidential Campaign in a UK General Election – especially if you’ve had an empathy transplant.

(6) Project Fear doesn’t work. Demonising the other side ad nauseum will turn voters against you. The Brits love an underdog so don’t give them one

(7) We’re in the 21st century. If you don’t use social media then you’ll lose. Get yourself some geeks who understand it – like Labour did!

(8) Elections are fought and won on the economy. Labour brought out the magical money tree. You rolled out the soundbite and failed to rip their manifesto to pieces. You then compounded that by failing to produce a clear credible manifesto, fully costed, and economically sound. You have to have a costed and credible economic policy

(9) Don’t duck debates especially if you’re in power. You have to defend your policies or people will assume you can’t. But more importantly, if you decide that the Party won’t attend a debate, don’t send a substitute. Go yourself or stay away!

Now I know that the tories increased their share of the vote by around 5% but the fact is that Labour increased their’s by 10% – so you lost. As a result the country is in for months of not years of social unrest, strikes, disruption, protest marches and the rest. As I predicted a couple of years back, Corbyn is unelectable so the left will do what they’ve always done and try to bring down the elected government by taking it to the streets.

And the tragedy of all this is that there was no need to call the bloody election in the first place…!

Words fail me…

Never underestimate the ability of people to be stupid…

Keep calm – it’ll soon be over!


This time next week, we’ll all know whether we’re in the deep shit…

I can’t remember an election which has produced a less edifying spectacle than this current one. When Corbyn did his U-turn the other night and decided to grace that dreadful debacle of a BBC ‘debate’ it hit an all time low. The audience was plainly hand picked by momentum. Rudd was quite right to point out that this squabbling bunch of kids is the sort of ‘coalition of chaos’ that could be in power this time next week. God save us!

Mr clever dick Corbyn thought he was so clever wrong footing May but it just made him look stupid, petulant and untrustworthy. How he can bang on about May making U-turns and then make an even bigger one himself is beyond me. I don’t blame May not turning up. At least she kept her word which is more than you can say for Corbyn. The man makes up policy on the hoof, contradicts himself five minutes later, and then changes it again.

Only this morning Corbyn announced that there’ll be no coalition with the SNP if Labour are the largest party whilst almost simultaneously Sturgeon was announcing that the SNP have agreed to join a Lab/SNP coalition.

Explain to me how allowing sick patients to retain their home instead of selling it to pay for their care, and how raising the threshold at which care becomes free allowing you to keep £100,000 in your estate instead of £23,000 can be called a ‘dementia tax’. They’ll be better off FFS!

This has been a campaign where the media has never been so biased. It’s been a campaign where soundbites take precedent over facts. It’s been a campaign of fantasy Corbynomics.

Corbyn confirmed this morning that McDonut, Flabbott and Thornbird will remain in post in his cabinet if he’s elected. A Marxist chancellor, racist home secretary and a foreign secretary that wants to scrap our nuclear deterrent. How the hell can people be stupid enough to vote for that???

And what’s more to the point remember that Corbyn lost a vote of confidence from his parliamentary party and most of his cabinet resigned. So exactly who is there apart from the these three that would be prepared to serve in his cabinet? But what the hell! Let’s put a glossy spin on it!

If the Tories lose their majority, there will be no Brexit. Corbyn has said there must be a deal so all the EU have to do is not give us one. If Labour win you’ll see your taxes rocket, your council tax treble, your job at risk as corporation tax hikes bankrupt businesses and cripple inward investment. You’ll see immigration go through the roof. You’ll see the national debt spiralling upwards as Labour redefine borrowing. You see yourself recategorised as ‘wealthy’ so you can be taxed even more. Labour will attack “the many, not the few”.

In fact even if you hate the Tories, you need to vote for them – because Labour will bankrupt this country and you – the electorate and taxpayer – will be the ones footing the bill…
