Downing Street

General Election 2017

If you have been watching the UK TV or listening to the Radio or reading the newspapers this morning… you are probably already sick and tired of hearing about the British general election.

You still have over seven weeks of this to go!

[waiting name=”GE2017″]

For years I have voted for UKIP as I felt that the most important thing to be done was getting out of Europe. Yes, preventing the thousands of abortions are morally more important, but until you have taken control of your own law making, you could not even think of changing things like our abortion laws.

I think we are probably still in the position that what we need to do is to secure Brexit.

Other than that, I think we are still too early in the campaign to make any worthwhile comments on the election campaign so far.

Keep tuned for more comments.

Brexit under way…

Can it be true?

At last?

YES!

Theresa May has now signed the letter that will trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty and marks formally the beginning of the UK’s departure from the European Union.

This letter will be delivered to European Council president Donald Tuskby the British ambassador to the EU, Sir Tim Barrow.

Apparently, this will happen at 12:30 BST on Wednesday 29th March 2017. (I should be asleep)

The BBC are reporting that the prime minister, who will chair a cabinet meeting in the morning, will then make a statement to MPs confirming the countdown to the UK’s departure from the EU is under way.

The BBC are suggesting that the Key events and possible timings for Brexit are as follows.

  • 29 March, 2017 – UK triggers Article 50
  • 29 April – EU summit of the 27 leaders (without the UK) to agree to give the European Commission a mandate to negotiate with the UK
  • May – European Commission to publish negotiating guidelines based on the mandate the EU leaders give it. The EU might say something about possible parallel negotiation on a future EU-UK trade deal
  • May/June 2017 – Negotiations begin
  • 23 April and 7 May – French presidential elections
  • 24 September – German parliamentary elections
  • Autumn 2017 – The UK government is expected to introduce legislation to leave the EU and put all existing EU laws into British law – the Great Repeal Bill
  • October 2018 – Aim to complete negotiations
  • Between October 2018 and March 2019 – The Houses of Parliament, European Council and European Parliament vote on any deal
  • March 2019 – UK formally withdraws from the European Union (The Article 50 negotiations could be extended, but this is subject to the approval of the other 27 EU member states)

If we think that fight is over…. think again!

There are powerful forces in this world who are seeking to hold power over the world and are seeking to bring the whole world under one government.

Brexit may be a setback, but they plan for setbacks and will just pull out of the draw plan b or c or d… and move on.

They are on both sides of all major wars, and both sides of many elections. It does not matter who wins, it is always them.

I am just watching a video on corruption on the Royal Family!!! frightening. Contact me if you have any information.

May in a straitjacket

House of Lords tie Theresa May’s hands for Brexit negotiations.

I have always been a strong advocate of the House of Lords. As a counterbalance to left-leaning or socialist governments, I saw some merit in having heads of families who have a longer term view on the future of Britain than the next election.

But if I was asked today to vote for or against the House of Lords, I think I would have to vote for their abolition.

It is one thing to say to the government, on this or that matter you should think again, this legislation is a poorly worded or the like is one thing. But to say of the expressed mind of the electorate, we must have our six pennies worth. I believe they have overstepped their role.

What have they done?

Peers backed a Labour-led amendment by 366 to 268 to give parliament a veto over the final outcome of Brexit negotiations. (List of Peers who voted against the government can be seen here.) In effect, this is a veto over the final outcome of Theresa May’s Brexit negotiations both in the House of Commons and then in the Lords.

So May and her team go to Europe, negotiate a deal, but as time is running out to reach a deal, she has to keep saying, “I will have to see if my mum and dad will let me go to the party.” I mean will parliament agree to this deal.

The outcome.

Theresa May just can not allow herself and her negotiating team to be put in this position.

She will have to crush this amendment in the Commons or will end up having to take this back to the country in a general election asking for a full mandate to negotiate with a free hand. But even if she is able to overturn this amendment in the Commons, I believe it will then have to go to the Lords yet again. As it were daring them to again overturn the supremacy of the Commons.

It is bad enough that May and her team will know they can not make a deal, but Europe will know too and will be able to send her back time and time again with deals that the UK government ould not possibly agree and can run the clock out on her.

Lords losing a great deal of support from the country.

On top of putting Theresa May in an unenviable position, I believe that the Lords have taken a big sledgehammer to the foundations of the House of Lords.

 

 

 

Theresa May in Turkey

We did what?

In the words of Victor Meldrew, “I can’t believe it!”

A few days ago, Britain agreed on a £100m defence deal, to help develop fighter jets for the Turkish air force. Theresa May said the defence agreement “underlines once again that Britain is a great, global, trading nation”.

It may emphasise that Britain is a great trading nation, but it might show that we are none too careful about how we choose our friends.

Apparently, this deal will pave the way for a deeper defence partnership. This is a week when the world appears to have gone mad over a 90-day ban on travel from seven counties.

Turkey in my opinion is one step away from being a dictatorship. Open Doors rates Turkey as the 29th worst country for the persecution of Christians.

According to Amnesty International this last year, “Respect for freedom of expression deteriorated. Countless unfair criminal prosecutions, including under criminal defamation and anti-terrorism laws, targeted political activists, journalists and others critical of public officials or government policy. Ordinary citizens were frequently brought before the courts for social media posts.” and “The right to peaceful assembly continued to be limited in law and denied in practice,” furthermore, “Impunity persisted for human rights abuses committed by public officials.”

I am not at all sure that Turkey is the sort of country that Britan should be entering into contracts to supply with arms.

I am very certain that we should be looking into this much more closely than a 90-day ban on travel.
