General Election Alert!

Labour Backs Tory Budget

It should also be remembered that labour are backing Brexit, which means there is no Opposition party at the moment!

Question For Theresa May

Why the hell are you still hanging around in Brussels?

Whilst the cat's away...

David Davis will be installed as temporary leader, if you don't sort yourself out.

Cri de Coeur - Liz Truss Take Note!

In order for the UK to face down the darkness of the ongoing Brexit "negotiations" with a degree of calmness and fortitude, it needs a leader/government that displays leadership, fortitude and competence!

We changed Prime Minister when facing a Nazi invasion, now we can't even change Speaker!

Austerity Is Over!!!!!!!!!

When Theresa May announced, in her recent conference speech that austerity was over, many in the media and politics dismissed it as BS.

However, I refer you to the news on the BBC today that say senior judges in England and Wales could be set for pay rises of up to 32% if recommendations made by the Senior Salaries Review Body are accepted.

The move aims to address low morale among judges and to compensate them for changes to their pension scheme.

The recommendations would see a High Court judge receive an additional £60,000 a year.
Crown Court judges would receive a 22% rise - taking them to £165,000 - and district judges would get an 8% rise.

Clearly austerity is definitely over, as there is no way judges would get such a stonking pay rise if others in the public sector didn't as well!

"No Vacancy" - But Here Are The Rules!

The Duplicitous DUP

Sadly, because of Theresa May's disastrous decision to call and election and then botch it, the country is being run by government propped up by the DUP (who demanded £1BN for their support).

Now that things are hotting up wrt Brexit, the DUP is relishing its position of "power broker", or more accurately in this case "power destroyer", and is threatening to vote against the Budget if their Brexit "red lines" are crossed.

The DUP claim to want to be treated as the same as the rest of the UK. This is all very well, noble and commendable. However, when it comes to other laws (eg abortion) the DUP are "strangely" reluctant to follow the UK's lead.

Inevitably, as could have been predicted when the confidence and supply deal was brokered by May, this particular house of cards looks like it is about to come crashing down to earth.

As and when it does, I will be most fascinated to see how May gets the £1BN back!

Tories Whipping Labour MPs

Such is the bizarre state of British politics, that we have finally crossed through the looking glass, and are now in a world where Tory ministers are in talks with aaround 25 Labour MPs to secure Theresa May's widely despised Chequers Brexit deal.

Seemingly the Government’s whips’ office has spent recent months making contact with the MPs, as a back-up option for when May’s Brexit deal is put to a vote in Parliament in early December.

Methinks certain Tories will not be best pleased by this!

The End of "Austerity"?

May will have to find at least an extra £20billion to spend on public services to fulfil her pledge that austerity is over, according to the head of the Institute for Fiscal Studies.

Paul Johnson said even that amount of additional funding “won’t feel particularly generous” and would almost certainly have to be found through borrowing because the Government would “really struggle to get tax rises through” Parliament.

Basically, Theresa May shrouded her "end of austerity" in the cloak of "a good Brexit".

The reality is that we have, at this stage, no way of knowing if there will be a "good Brexit" and what, exactly, she means by an end to "austerity".

May has no grounding/understanding in finance/economics so it is very doubtful that she understood what she mean either!

Not In The National Interest To Have General Eelection Yet

She is correct.

However, neither is in the national interest that she continues to be Prime Minister once the Brexit deal has been done, or walked away from.
