“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 […]

“Fake news” is Johnson’s route to No. 10

Posted on: 18th July 2019

Our next PM continues to fib his way to Downing Street… Mr Johnson has made a trade in making up stories about straight bananas and fictitious regulations he wants people to rail against. Last night he pleased Tory supporters by waving a kipper on stage, asking “Why does a kipper from the Isle of Man […]

Trump protests are counterproductive

Posted on: 6th June 2019

I understand why many chose to boycott or protest against Trump. However, I fear it’s counterproductive. It has the opposite effect to the one the protestors/boycotters desire. Trump may go back to the US with an impression he’s not universally adored throughout the UK, but he’ll have dominated the news and with sky-high public relations […]

Strong Anti-Brexit message from Liberal Democrat success

Posted on: 27th May 2019

The Euro results weren’t just a bloody nose for the Conservative Government. It was a also a thumbs-down for Brexit. Bad news for Brexit Underlying the predictable media hype for the Brexit Party lurks an inconvenient fact… …that support for Brexit has fallen. The BBC/Press Association produced this chart. Correctly not allocating votes for Labour […]

Please use your vote in today’s Euro elections

Posted on: 23rd May 2019

I won’t add to the welter of leaflets and comment. Let’s hope the results jolt the Government out of its Brexit paralysis.

Former Labour MP says “vote Liberal Democrat”

Posted on: 20th May 2019

A former Labour MP and good friend, Andrew Mackinlay, contacted me this evening to say he’s encouraging Labour supporters to vote Liberal Democrat in Thursday’s Euro poll. He gave me the following statement: Andrew Mackinlay, who was for 18 years the Labour Member of Parliament for Thurrock, has urged Labour Party Remain supporting members to […]

Euro elections – send a strong message – vote Liberal Democrat

Posted on: 17th May 2019

This election sees the strong return of the Liberal Democrats. It’s a golden opportunity – to send a strong message to Westminster. The UK is a country of lions led by donkeys. This Government has turned the UK into the world’s biggest laughingstock. The Conservatives have spent three years faffing and in-fighting. They offered multi-million £ ferry contracts to companies with no ferries. […]
