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 […]

“Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!”

Posted on: 25th September 2019

PM Johnson is imprisoned in his own web of deceit. His Government dragged unwillingly back to Parliament today to face uncomfortable scrutiny. Guilty of misleading the Queen, of acting unlawfully, of lying to Parliament and frustrating parliamentary democracy. PM Johnson, his Commons’ Leader, Mr Rees-Mogg, and Attorney General, Mr Cox, should “consider their positions” and […]

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 […]

Cummings gets his comuppence

Posted on: 3rd September 2019

Boris Johnson today skewered himself on the sword of his own bluster and misjudgment. Meanwhile the real Prime Minister, Dominic Cummings, has seen his devious strategy of threats and dictatorial rule catastrophically fail. Johnson complains that Parliament is stopping him from negotiating a Brexit deal with the EU. But he’s made no effort to commence […]

Tories to introduce Parliamentary “Martial Law”

Posted on: 28th August 2019

The real PM, Dominic Cummings and his poodle – Mr B Johnson – plan to commit the Parliamentary equivalent of “martial law”. Suspending Parliament is a declaration of war on our democracy. They’re running away from being answerable. It is a cowardly abuse of power. There appear to be no depths of dishonesty, arrogance and […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
