A badge of honour…

At my advanced time of life there are not many things that I can genuinely claim to have never done before, but tonight I can genuinely say that I have done so.

Tonight I was ejected from the AGM of my local Conservative Constituency Association. Yes, I admit to being a card carrying member of the Tory Party. In fact I joined last year with the express desire of being able to hold my Remainer MP to account for defying the will of her constituents.

Now party politics is not new to me. In 2015 I voted for UKIP and was a member of UKIP at the time. UKIP meetings were a bit of a shambles but at least they were all singing from the same hymn sheet and believed passionately in what they were putting forward to the electorate which is more than I can say for the Tories.

It started badly as not one single person on the front table thought to introduce themselves as they got up to speak. This always bodes ill with me because of the arrogant assumption that they are so bloody important we are just expected to know who they are. I’d never seen them before so was forced to ask – which didn’t go down well. Never mind.

After the usual formal waffle it was our MPs turn to address the meeting. The chap next to me leapt in and gave an passionate address about the Brexit shambles and the splits in the party and how if they didn’t get their shit together they would be massacred at the next election and how he’d never vote for them again. Pretty much what I intended to say so he saved me the trouble.

This was met with much derision from the assembled masses and a sprited response from the MP who proceeded to bang on about how much better things were under the Tories and how Corbyn was too dangerous to be allowed into power. Much of this has sod all to do with Brexit and totally failed to address my friend’s point.

I could resist no longer. I interjected by asking why if things were so good for the UK why we were kowtowing to a bunch of unelected EU dictators and why we didn’t have the balls to tell them to get stuffed. She waffled on about how good the Capitulation Agreement was because we needed a deal for our own good.

I asked what we would be getting for our money. That’s 39 billion plus 10 billion a year for the two year transition plus 8.4 billion a year that we collect on import duties and hand over to Brussels. That’s a total of 76 billion pounds or £1,200 for every person regardless of age in the UK.

That was met with a grunt of disgust from a bloke behind me so I pointed out that for a party that professes to care for the disadvantaged and needy in society, robbing them of £1,200 per head was a little hypocritical.

Our illustrious MP was a getting a little flustered at this point and got really cross when I continued by asking her what the whip would be in the forthcoming votes (she’s a whip) and how she justified supporting remain in defiance of the Conservative manifesto and against the wishes of the electorate in her leave voting Constituency.

At this point she lost the plot and suggested I leave the meeting, so as I could no longer tolerate her unbearable arrogance and hypocrisy, I decided to comply.

It will be interesting to see how that is reported in the minutes. Probably along the lines of “there was a sprited discussion with our MP” fullstop. After all, nobody asked my name and I didn’t tell them. If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me.

The Tory Party was once known as the nasty party but I prefer to regard it now as the Arrogant Party. Seems its OK to be open and a ‘broad church, one nation Conservative’ as long as you go along with everything they say without question.

That’s not my way as my regular reader will know and never will be, so I say a heart felt “Fuck you” as I exit stage right.

Is it any wonder the EU are shitting all over us with this shower in charge?…

Bercow and Grieve


Has there ever been a pair of more treacherous cunts in the history of modern British politics?

This morning it is revealed that John “Bollocks to Brexit” Bercow held a meeting in his plush taxpayer funded apartment with arch Remoaner Dominic Grieve the evening before Bercow completely rode roughshod over constitutional protocol by allowing Grieve to table an amendment to an unamendable bill..

Grieve’s comment on the meeting? “I often speak to the Speaker about all sorts of things. We’re fellow Buckinghamshire MPs. But I am not in the business of suborning Speakers. They make up their own minds. I tabled my amendment without speaking to the Speaker. How the Speaker decided to approach the amendment is a matter for him.” So it was all just a coincidence then? Like fuck do I believe that one!

Meanwhile in his Buckinghamshire constituency, the chair of the local party said he had been ‘bombarded’ with letters of complaint about Grieve calling for him to be deselected. He added: ‘We don’t want him to stay as our MP. If he tries to stand again I would personally hurl rotten tomatoes at him.’

Grieve’s comment? He said he was “unaware of any calls by local Beaconsfield Tory association members for him to be deselected over his actions last week and denied that he plans to stand down at the next Election.” Well, it’s in the national press this morning so I guess he’s aware of it now? I find his statement incredulous – but then he is a lawyer!

And as for Mr Bollocks to Brexit? A spokesman said “Meetings with parliamentarians are private and we do not comment on them.”

A pair of undemocratic, untrustworthy cunts if ever there was one…

Deal – or No Deal?

Three days in and still no further forward.

The Daily Mail has changed sides with its new editor in place and is now spewing out the latest Project Hysteria crap – including a pro-forma letter to your MP urging him/her to support the sell out deal. Number 10 has sent a card to constituency parties to be given to all members of the party to send to their MP to urge them to support the capitulation. Both of these moves are reprehensible. Geobels would be proud…

So now the bastards in Parliaments MPs are having a day off. The Prime Monster has sent ministers all over the country to bully the locals put the case to the people so they can pressure their MP to support the deal. They seem to have lost sight of the fact that most people voted Leave and that MPs have already made their minds up that no deal really is better than a bad deal. This is a very very bad deal indeed and just because it is the only one on offer, it doesn’t mean we should sign up to it.

So what of the backstop? Well, May says she’ll give MPs a choice on whether it ever comes into play. This is patent nonsense as it would require a rewording of the WA which the EU have already said they won’t do. So what else can we try?

Well, the choice is now offered to either enter the backstop – locking us into the EU in perpetuity – or to extend the transition period until a solution is agreed. The EU will therefore have no incentive to find a solution, the transition will be extended and extended and guess what? We will be locked into the EU in perpetuity. This, of course, is the treasonous plan all along.

I read an article yesterday written by a Remainer. He actually said that he accepted the referendum result – how grown up is that? – but then went on to say that if there is a betrayal of Brexit there could actually be a civil war in this country. A bit over the top perhaps, but I can see widespread civil unrest that will make the Poll Tax look like a picnic in the park.

And talking of parks, there are two conflicting marches starting at more or less the same in Park Lane on Sunday. One for a Peoples’ Vote (thought we already had one?) and the other rather appropriately called “Stop the Treason”. It’s going to kick off, isn’t it?

And which ever side starts the punch up, I can see the headline in the MSM on Monday right now – “Brexiteer thugs turn on innocent marchers peacefully expressing their democratic rights”

The sooner Tuesday comes around and we get rid of this treacherous, bullying arrogant, deaf Prime Minister the better…

Trump in the UK


I’ve avoided writing on this subject until now. So what prompted the change of heart? Well, the hypocrisy of the Left in this country…

Emily Thornberry, our illustrious Shadow Foreign Secretary, just tweeted “How dare you insult our country? You’re here as our guest. Did your mother teach you nothing?” in response to Trump speaking his mind on the Brexit deal at the NATO conference. Well, that’s a bit rich isn’t it Emily?

The Labour Party has campaigned to downgrade Trump’s visit from a State Visit to a working visit. They got their way. How dare you insult the elected leader of our greatest and nearest ally, Lady Nugee? Did your mother teach you nothing?

Then there’s Sadiq Khan. Trump and Khan don’t like each other. Khan’s doing a terrible job and Trump just out and says so. Well, you might think that’s rude, until you see what Khan has said about Trump. In January, when Trump was due to open the new US Embassy in London, Khan said that Londoners “have made it clear that Donald Trump is not welcome here.” He added “what a mistake it was for Theresa May to rush and extend an invitation of a state visit in the first place.” And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

What is not excusable is when Khan authorises the dreaded Trump baby blimp. Can he not understand that this is seen as a joke by Trump and as pathetic and childish by the majority of Brits? He needs to grow up, spend more time getting crime in the capital under control and less time throwing his toys out of the pram.

It is a sad state of affairs when the Russians and the North Koreans give Trump a better welcome than the United Kingdom. It says a lot about the state of this country today.

We are capitulating to the EU over Brexit – and while we’re talking about the EU, why were they represented at the NATO summit? The EU is not a country – yet. It contributes nothing to the NATO budget, so why were they attending?

Trump says May has failed to tackle Brexit. We’ve met them three quarters of the way there and still they stonewall us. Trump would have told them to fuck off. He’d be right.

Frankly I’m ashamed of the disrespect we are showing to the POTUS. Honour the office even if you don’t like the man. Frankly we need a strong leader like Trump not a weak useless pushover like May.

At this point in time, I’d rather be the 51st state of America then the 28th state of Europe. At least they have a leader and made our PM welcome when she went to Washington. We could learn a lot from Donald Trump – not least of all about how to conduct a negotiation from a position of strength.

Welcome to the UK, Mr. President…

Love Labour’s Loss


One might have been forgiven for thinking that last weekend’s great festival of ‘Music, art poetry, dreaming, fun, happiness’ was indeed ‘a great day out.’ After all, the great messiah of the working classes, Jezza himself, said as much – so it must be true!

But it’s not true is it? The fact is that Labour Live was a monumental flop. Not that you will have heard that on the TV news, a situation which would not be unexpected on the Biased Broadcasting Corporation, but what about Sly News, or Idiot TeleVision? No. Not a dicky bird. Nothing. But what did you expect? Did you hear them report earlier in the week that six members of the Labour front bench resigned en masse? No, of course you didn’t…

The press were marginally less biased about Jezfest, but not a lot. Even the more recognisable Labour rags were a bit scathing. Even the Grauniad declared “If walking around JezFest is anything to go by, the Tories have little to fear!”

It started badly for Labour when some idiot snowflake at HQ suggested that they could build on Comrade Corbyn’s ego trip at last year’s Glastonbury by holding their own mini version in the north London Labour heartland. It was a bad idea. First, they couldn’t find any committed socialist bands to pay for free. Socialist principals have their price, after all.

Then they couldn’t sell the tickets. £35 to hear a speech from the great Catweazel. Surely a bargain? Well, no. 30,000 on sale, only 2,000 mugs, so just to piss off the 2,000 they slashed the price to £10. And for just ten quid you get to talk to the great McClusky himself in the Unite marquee. Who could refuse that? Well, loads of people actually.

Not that this deterred the organisers. Unite bought 10,000 tickets at the full £35 and provided free transport to bus them in. Of course several of them were there already because they were bullied into working as stewards for free – pretty hypocritical for a party which condemns interns working for free!

But even that didn’t work. Even in a Momentum stronghold, they couldn’t attract people who wanted to listen to the likes of Eddie Izzard and Owen Jones telling them what they should be thinking. To be fair, I suppose that’s understandable. What would your traditional Labour core voter make of a transvestite alternative comedian with fake tits? Hard to say, but we could probably guess. But as one reporter revealed, when he got to the door determined that he wasn’t going to pay more than the discounted £10 for a ticket, he was told that ‘locals get in for free’. What a shame they forgot to tell the locals!

And then there was the moment the great man appeared – only to be met with a group of protesters proclaiming ‘Bollocks to Brexit’ seeking to ‘democratically overturn Brexit’. Well, they were ejected by a bunch of momentum heavies (denied by the organisers despite video evidence) because they were ‘blocking the view with their banner’. Democracy in action, presumably? Where did we see this sort of tactics before? Nazi Germany during the rise of Hitler perhaps?

No, at the end of the day you can spin this any way you like – and be assured they will – this was an ill conceived vanity project and a comprehensive failure. Even some of the photographs on Facebook bore a remarkable similarity to Glastonbury 2016. Presumably that was just a mistake rather than a deliberate lie? Of course it was.

So how do we sum up Labour Live 2018? Let’s be honest – if a major political party can’t even make a profit on a fundraiser, how the hell can you expect them to handle the economy?

“Labour – for the few, not the many”
