Have I missed something??

Has there been another election since Mrs Mays impoverished result last year?? If so when did it happen and why didn’t I as a voting member of the public know??

Have we had another referendum on BREXIT?? Again I have to ask when did this happen and why was I not given a vote??

Is Mr Barnier negotiating BREXIT with the government or every other person who wants a say, because if so why have I not been invited?? Believe me I would have a few things to say particularly about his arrogance which for any BREXITEERS will do nothing to warm people towards Europe, instead it is more likely to rightly/ wrongly confirm their beliefs.

When did Mr Barnier start to say what is best for our country, isn’t this the very reason many people voted to leave because they felt Europe was interfering in UK policies/ laws etc?? Why are we continuing to give this man the upperhand in any negotiations?? By doing so are we not feeding the belief that Europe is running this country?? And I see Mr Macron is flexing his oral muscles again demanding that we increase the number of refugees we take from Calais. I have to ask why are these people deliberately trying to alienate the British people because their behaviour is hardly going to change the minds of BREXITEERS or encourage others to want to stay. In addition Mr Macron needs to check up the meaning of child and refugee, he may find he needs to be using term such as young adult and economic migrants.

If we are ‘all in this together then why do I feel that I am in a country being usurped by the very people who claim to have out best interests at heart?

Surely whatever your position, it is now time for everyone to stick together and get the best deal for the UK instead of alienating potential foreign interest and trying to undermine current BREXIT negotiations.

Everyone is rattling on about Donald Trump, frankly I am fed up of hearing about the guy, he is a transient person, by the time Brexit is completed (given current time scales) the USA will be voting for a new president. Let’s be honest he is NOT our president, he was the Americans choice – get over it, and with regards to his visit to this country I can only say we have entertained worse in our time and we need to look beyond the person to the purpose. However you have to give Mr Trump some credit, if nothing else he has certainly increased the American people’s interest in politics. Also given their choices what were they to do? Continue to hand power to the corrupt elite of USA because the power of the USA is held by a minority group of families not the people – even the Obama’s were closely linked to the Kennedy’s, so hopefully if nothing else we will see new families coming to the White house in the future and today’s young American might think there is a chance they could be president, but hey that’s a different issue.

I feel Gina Miller made an excellent point on question time last week when she suggested  our politicians did not seem to know much about how to negotiating deals?? You cannot afford to disclose all your cards in the opening gambit, god help this bunch if they ever get into a game of Poker!

Has London become an independent state with its own prime minister in the form of Mr Khan? – I thought he was only the Mayor for the city of London, who is he to try to determine who visits our country? He needs to be aware the UK exists beyond the city of London. The lack of awareness that the UK is not all about London is a serious issue for those who live outside the hallowed area. It is NOT for Londoners to decide who visits our country a point Mr Khan would do well to take note of if he is aiming to work for the UK as a whole.

Let’s be honest WE the BRITISH people from the ENTIRE UK bailed out the banks and our thanks – to expect us to help bail them out with Corillion and to threaten to leave the UK if BREXIT goes through. Well thanks for that guys, you really make me feel appreciated as I continue to try to live on what was probably about one twentieth of your annual bonus!! You’ve got a bloody nerve!!

What I really want to know is what is the approach each party is taking, I apologise if that makes me seem completely thick but my understanding is as follows

Conservatives claim to be going for Brexit whatever the outcome – then we see these turkeys going off to have backroom chats with Mr Barnier, so what’s really going on there?? Is this called ‘you took my job away so now I’m not happy with you’? Well looking at the Corillion situation it looks as though someone’s job needs to be looked at – oh but I’m forgetting we have done that by looking at the lowest common denominator – the brickie, plasterer, cleaner etc

Labour – well I believe they intend to carry through with some form of BREXIT but seem incapable/ unable/ unwilling to explain what form their BREXIT would have, although be sure it will include continued immigration and membership of the single market – so is it BREXIT or not?? Time to put your cards on the table chaps, or are you more interested in making the UK a socialist state and if so I would like to know of an example where this has been a good thing for THE PEOPLE, I agree that in common with every other form of politics the leaders always do well out of it, but what about us pawns on the board of life, we are usually worse off under a socialist strategy so what will make it different this time??? You are already trying to make sure Mr Corbyn can only be replaced by a socialist – now that hardly bodes well does it??

To be fair to the Lib Dems they have at least said categorically that they do not want to leave Europe and will have another referendum – at least they have pinned their colours to the mast rightly or wrongly, depends on your point of view.

Plaid Cymru – well they want another referendum and want to stay in Europe – an interesting stance since the majority of Wales said leave. So who are they actually representing.

SNP – want to stay within Europe – again interesting since when they were campaigning for independence they were quite happy to give up membership to get independence, then try to get separate membership but with Europe telling them no chance, that did not deter their campaign, so what’s changed there? What is their real agenda?

The greens have had some strange approaches which shouldn’t surprise us after their former leader announced all white women should only be allowed to have sex with men of colour as that would eventually get rid of racism – a strange view given that racism is not all about skin colour. So what do they really want?

DUP – they claim to be supporting the BREXIT agenda through their paid for alliance to the conservatives, but are they really?? Or is there too much history there for that to be a productive alliance, they certainly like to be seen to be making the conservatives squirm before they give their support – not a helpful approach, so what do they really want??

Sinn Fein – Now what is their agenda for Southern Ireland?? Neither them or DUP should be using this crucial negotiation to determine what happens to the UK as an excuse to further their own Nth/ Sth Irish agenda, and perhaps the Southern Irish government needs to think back a few years and ask themselves who financially bailed them out when they were in trouble with the Euro?? It certainly wasn’t Europe. So again we don’t really know what their agenda is.

Now call me simple minded I really don’t care, but I do care about the future of this country and take this opportunity to remind all mp’s you are being paid to represent the people of this great country not to grind your own axes, looking at the summaries above, god forbid,  you really do not give out much hope for any of us

So  Have I missed another vote on the future of this county and if so why and when was it??

Have I missed something??

Just get out there and vote you don’t need to pay!!

Well another political battle is getting underway and once again we see those who do not understand the concept of democracy jumping up and down about the ‘opportunity to change the BREXIT situation’, and who’s name immediately leaps to the top of the list – non other than Gina Miller!

Now lets get this into perspective shall we, the majority of the country voted to leave Europe and she did not agree, in fact she disagreed so much she used her money to pay the costs of taking the government to court to challenge their right to do this and I applaud her for her tenacity in trying to influence the outcome she wanted, even if it does fly in the face of the principles of democracy. At least she was prepared to make sure what ever the government was doing it was legal and above board and we should all be grateful for that reassurance. The cost of sticking to her beliefs was both expensive in cash terms and very expensive in the level of uncalled for personal abuse and threats made towards her. As a member of the UK population she has a right to express a view without being harassed and threatened about it, however she needs to balance that with the fact that as a member of the UK population she has the advantage of living in a democracy which means we follow the preferences of the majority even if it is just by a single % point, that’s what a democracy is about, this is something Ms Miller does not seem to grasp as she is now looking to scupper voting by campaigning for tactical voting.

Now this lady, who lets be honest had no trouble telling everyone she was wealthy, is now using the internet to fund raise to enable her to run a tactical voting campaign throughout the election campaign to make sure she gets what she wants with BREXIT and I’m afraid that is where I have an issue with her understanding of democracy.

Now whilst this lady says she is doing this in the interests of all ‘remainers’ – is she really? Or is this just another case of the wealthy trying to get politics to work in their favour and hang the rest of the people! You know who I mean ‘the ordinary people’ a term I  hate, we are no more ordinary than anyone else in this country! You have to be pretty unusual to be anything other than ‘ordinary’ people, so why can’t politicians say what they really mean – ‘ordinary people’ are really those who are not considered the wealthy members of the population – and the only thing that excludes the wealthy from being ordinary is their extraordinary selfishness, arrogance and greed!! Anyway I digress, back to the lovely Ms Miller!

Before we offer up our cash to her latest cause we must ask ourselves the key question – who is she doing this for? Lets be honest this is a woman who made her money in the investment management business – she didn’t have much of a social conscience then as together with other bankers and financiers she threw the lives of the ‘ordinary people’ into jeopardy whilst she made her fortune, and I doubt she ever gave back her annual bonus!! Might I just remind you the investment managers operate in shares investments and get paid a healthy bonus which is more than the rest of us will earn in 5years. Ms Miller also probably has her money invested in shares so if they drop she loses masses of cash in the short term, so like many of the other wealthy people telling us the ‘ordinary people’ what we should be voting, thinking or doing – because of course we are so bloody thick and stupid we can’t think for ourselves, their real interest is how much it will personally cost them if their shares lose value.

Now I appreciate the shares of businesses lose value and it affects us the ‘ordinary people’ but most of the wealthy whingers only use their wealth to satisfy their own needs, they are not investing in this country or the people of this country, so please do not kid yourselves into thinking this is a truly humanistic and altruistic act made by Gina Miller because it isn’t . This is the wealthy spoiled brat behaviour of someone not getting their own way. This woman clearly thinks that everyone is so stupid that they need to pay her to scupper the vote and I feel this is because they feel she will overturn BREXIT – she won’t, this is an insult to your intelligence!! It’s no better than a scam to get your money under false pretenses, she cannot change the BREXIT decision

My advice is do not let this woman treat you like a completely gullible idiot, hang onto your money, you need it more than she does and get out there to vote for who you think will keep the country on the right track, who is going to deliver most of the things you want, who has the best chance of getting the country the right deal in Europe, who can get us new trade deals? Get involved, listen to it all, have your debates argue about it but DON’T pay cash for it! Do not feel you have to part with your hard earned cash to support someone’s personal agenda. If you think her campaign will overturn the BREXIT decision you are wrong, the courts have already made that decision AND Gina Miller of all people knows that! I don’t care who you vote for, we must each make our own decision but make your vote count, don’t pay to  fulfill this woman’s personal agenda. No one needs to pay to vote in this country, we’ve accused the Russians of interfering in the voting process of USA and yet here we have a woman willing to scupper the voting process here just to get her own way.

Make your own mind up

Vote for WHO YOU think will be the best Prime Minister.

Make your vote count for YOU

Keep your money in Your bank account

Whatever you do get your cross in the box! It will take you 10 minutes. Be part of the decision making process.If you don’t vote you cannot complain about the results!!

Just get out there and vote you don’t need to pay!!
