Theresa May Has Shot The Supreme Court's Fox

Theresa May secures Article 50 victory in the Commons as Parliament passes amended Brexit motion by 448 to 75.

Ironically the Supreme Court will resume today, without any mention of the fact that their deliberations are now completely irrelevant.

As I have been saying all along, this hearing is a waste of time!

Barnier Sets Brexit Deadline

Apparently, the UK will conclude its Brexit negotiations by October 2018.

That is according to Michel Barnier, IF negotiations start in March 2017!

Judging by the snail's pace at which the government is going with this, that's a very big

Supreme Court Live Feed of Brexit Hearing

Those of you who want to watch the Supreme Court hearing of the A50 Brexit challenge may do so via this link:

This is of course an utter waste of time and money, and an unnecessary delay. Theresa May should invoke Article 50 by writing to the EU, once she has done that the decision the by Supreme Court will be irrelevant.

The "Special" Relationship

It would be really refreshing if for once, when there is a change of President in the USA, the British media and our MPs would stop wetting themselves over the "special" relationship.

This "special" relationship was forged between Churchill and Roosevelt, in the heat of war, for the convenience of:

1 Roosevelt, who needed an excuse to lend military assets (for a price) to the UK and an excuse to bring the USA into the war and

2 Churchill, who needed America in the war.

Post war the relationship quickly unravelled when America wanted its debts paid, and the US supported Nasser in the Suez crisis.

The relationship only becomes "special" when there is a close bond between the President and PM (eg Reagan and Thatcher) or when it is in America's interests for it to be "special" (eg the Iraq war).

Therefore please stop wetting yourselves!

Welcome Mr President Elect

The Wee Election Across The Pond

Good luck to the good people of America, who vote for their new President today.

I cannot but help feel that had the Republicans chosen anyone other than Trump, they would win hands down. The same also applies to the Democrats, had they chosen anyone other than Clinton.

Good luck everyone!

High Court A50 Ruling Irrelevant

The ruling by the High Court that Parliament must vote to trigger Brexit is irrelevant:

1 Theresa May can invoke it by simply writing to Juncker et al. Once she has done that it cannot be uninvoked, even if parliament flays her alive.

2 The ruling simply covers the triggering of Brexit, the actual terms and conditions of Brexit remain in the hands of the government, not Parliament.

All in all the ruling is irrelevant, and nothing has changed!

Government To Appeal A50 Ruling

No surprises there then!

Remainers Stall Brexit

As per Law360 the High Court has ruled that the government needs parliamentary permission before it can kickstart the process to quit the European Union, in a landmark ruling which limits the scope of Prime Minister Theresa May’s executive powers.

The decision creates a new precedent in limiting the government’s executive power.

The case, brought by campaigners who argued that only Parliament has the right to start the exit, now threatens to stall the government’s plan to follow through on the nation’s vote to quit the EU in a June referendum.

All very well and good, for the Remainers, but this uncertainty will screw the entire country.

All Aboard The Titanic!

A50 Brexit Ruling at 10:00AM

The High Court will rule on Brexit and whether MPs should trigger Article 50 at 10:00AM today.

Heseltine The Dog Strangler

As per Guido Fawkes:
"‘I went to stroke him and he started biting me… If you have a dog that turns, you just cannot risk it. So I took Kim’s collar – a short of choker chain – and pulled it tight. Suddenly he went limp. I was devoted to Kim, but he’d obviously had some sort of mental breakdown.’"
Politicians getup to all sorts of shenanigans that produce some very lurid headlines. However, Heseltine strangling his mum's dog is really jumping the shark!

May Emulates Clinton - Speaks With Forked Tongue

As has happened to Hillary Clinton, Theresa May has been outed (via secret recordings) as employing double speak when addressing specific audiences.

As per the Guardian:
"Theresa May privately warned that companies would leave the UK if the country voted for Brexit during a secret audience with investment bankers a month before the EU referendum.

A recording of her remarks to Goldman Sachs, leaked to the Guardian, reveals she had numerous concerns about Britain leaving the EU. It contrasts with her nuanced public speeches, which dismayed remain campaigners before the vote in June."
Politicians more often than not "nuance" their speeches to suit their audience. Were it not for pesky modern technology these nuances could be hidden!

As per the Telegraph:
"Labour has been landed with a £20,000 fine after failing to declare election spending during the 2015 General Election, including the £7,000 cost of the so-called 'Ed Stone'."
Ed Stone, the gift that keeps on giving!

#Brexit Love It or Hate It - #MarmiteGate

One of the unintended consequences of Brexit is the now looming shortage of Marmite, as Tesco stands off against Unilever (the British/Dutch consumer conglomerate) in a dispute over which company should pick up the costs of the fall in Sterling.

A cynic might say that this is simply an excuse by Unilever to try to increase their prices under the smokescreen of Brexit!

Corbyn's Thugs To Descend On Liverpool

It seems that the Labour Party is bracing itself for a violent conference in Liverpool.

A memo sent to Labour Party staff warns of possible violent behaviour. The Huffington Post states that staff and stewards have been told they may face physical or verbal assault and could be harassed by angry activists.

Downhill all the way from here for Labour!

Labour's Insanely Protracted Leadership Contest

Labour's insanely protracted leadership election finally gets put out of its misery at midday today when the polls close.

Needless to say, in order to maximise the damage to itself, Labour won't announce the results until Saturday.

However, Smith has all but conceded. Thus Labour will continue on its path to obscurity!

Sky News reports that Corbynistas will launch a youth wing, Momentum Kids, nationwide across 150 local groups, with the aim of boosting the political involvement of children and the Corbyn-supporting activist movement by "promoting political activity that is fun, engaging and child-friendly".

This will not end well!

Cameron's Medieval Tendencies

Cameron has managed to cover himself in the sticky smelly stuff, as a result of his resignation honours list, described by Tim Farron as a list "so full of cronies it would embarrass a medieval court.”

One of the most controversial names on the peerages’ list was Laura Wyld, the head of Prime Minister’s Appointments, whose job at Downing Street involved helping nominate individuals for honours before they are vetted by Whitehall committees.

What was Cameron thinking?
