Our Campaign Is Go!

Posted on: 6th November 2019

“For Jo Swinson to say she could do “a better job than” Boris Johnson – or Jeremy Corbyn for that matter – is setting the bar very low indeed. “This election isn’t just about our future in Europe. It’s about the shape of our country for the next generation. “The Conservatives want us to become […]

This doesn’t “Get Brexit done”?!! It’s just perpetual Brexit torment

Posted on: 18th October 2019

The new Johnson deal doesn’t “Get Brexit done”. It would merely create new problems and leave the UK in a form of perpetual torment …If you’re suffering Brexit fatigue, this route will leave the UK in a Brexit netherworld for generations. Prof Michael Dougan kindly came to Penzance for a successful and well attended public […]

Passing the exploding blame parcel

Posted on: 11th October 2019

Who will blink first in the UK/EU game of blame-avoidance? The Conservative Government or the EU? The Johnson/Cummings Government maintains its artful bluster. But their bluff has been called. Their empty promises exposed. I doubt the EU will grant Johnson the prize he craves – freedom to blame everyone but himself. So, the EU is […]

Caretaker Government must be Plan A for Opposition Parties

Posted on: 7th October 2019

History will not be kind to the collection of opposition Parties and independent MPs if they allow the Cummings/Johnson Government to continue fibbing their way to 31st October. The parliamentary maths is clear. A majority of MPs want to stop the Conservatives. A vote of no confidence followed by the creation of a caretaker Government […]

The people must have the final say

Posted on: 16th September 2019

The Liberal Democrats’ admirably strong anti Brexit line is already well understood. But claiming we would unilaterally stop Brexit without reference to the people through a referendum IF WE WIN THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTION is unnecessary, wrong and counterproductive. Jo Swinson is doing a great job. But I’m not convinced the Leader’s office has thought […]

EU leaders Merkel and Macron have called Johnson’s bluff

Posted on: 29th August 2019

EU leaders Merkel and Macron have called Johnson’s bluff. He assured them he could walk on water where Irish backstops and borders are concerned. They’ve given him 30 days to prove it. They must be laughing behind their hands. It would be entertaining if it weren’t so humiliating for the UK. For the millions who […]

Merkel calls Johnson’s bluff

Posted on: 22nd August 2019

Angela Merkel is smart. PM Johnson is out of his depth. The UK Conservatives planned to construct a story in which the EU would be blamed for a breakdown in negotiations. By asking Johnson to find an alternative solution to the Irish backstop the ball’s in his court. She’s called his bluff. 30 days to […]

“No ifs. No buts”: Brexit won’t happen

Posted on: 20th August 2019

Irish PM Leo Varadkar has made clear to his EU colleagues that it is not worth reopening Brexit negotiations with the UK. He’s right. PM Johnson is merely engaged in synthetic media posturing for his right-wing supporters not in a serious attempt at renegotiation. Leaders of other countries are laughing behind their hands, while attempting […]

It’s about WHAT a Government of unity does, not about WHO leads it

Posted on: 16th August 2019

Our primary objective should be to combat this Dominic Cummings Government, the advance of the right and Johnson’s “promise-anything” cavalier attitude to truth and integrity. If a sensible moderate majority of MPs can come together to head off the irresponsible catastrophe our country is destined for – if Cummings/Johnson are left to carry on as […]

He’s campaigning. Not governing. “No ifs. No buts”!

Posted on: 25th July 2019

The new PM, Johnson, isn’t governing. He’s campaigning for a General Election. “No ifs. No buts”. He can’t deliver a new Brexit deal. Parliament will avert his no deal plans. So he’s deployed top marketing strategists to test which form of words works best. He’s not interested in the substance of policy but how he […]
