Rehman Chishti

Tories fighting like cats in a sack

Recently, I took the new prospective local Tory Councillors to task over their inability to answer a simple question about the local impacts of Brexit. See this microblog on twitter for the background to this article:

The sorry tale of Ms Venus

In the course of my e-mail exchange with Tina Venus-Coppard, it transpired that she and her husband had become ‘angry birds’ due to my over familiarity, but most particularly because I explained that it was nothing to be proud of by supporting drowning children in the channel in order to ‘pray at the racist altar’ of Brexit. Of course, Ms Venus vigorously denied supporting Suella Braverman’s policy, although I pointed out that if they were Tory party members, then surely they supported the values and behaviours of that party? They did not answer. Mr Venus pretended that he wasn’t a Tory nor did he back Brexit and that was the end of the matter ….

Until today, when the local Tory MP, Rehman Chishti published an article in The Observer, yes, The OBSERVER, saying that he does not agree with Braverman’s racist remarks about Muslim grooming gangs. Chishti stopped short of criticising Braverman’s policy on racist abuse of people fleeing from terror and therefore her policy on migration and asylum via deportation to Rwanda. Chishti calls Ms Braverman’s comments ‘inaccurate’. Translated, that’s a LIE. Rehman is himself a Pakistani Muslim and the son of a preacher imam, He campaigns on various issues of cross faith religious co-operation, when he’s not taking consultancy fees for Saudi defence ‘consultancy’ and taking £22 000 pa salary for a US fundamentalist anti-abortion pressure group.

Nonetheless, I must welcome Chishti’s candour in this matter, particularly as his voting record shows that he votes with the Government on nearly every issue he is presented with. This is presumably a throwback to the time when he became a prefect at the local Grammar school. However, I am naturally suspicious that this is a carefully crafted stunt, simply designed to curry (sic) favour with the local Conservative party and the Pakistani community for the local elections on Thursday May 5th. Interestingly I am told that Mr Chishti’s daughter is also a local Tory candidate in my area. It is notable that Chishti did this almost immediately after I challenged Ms Venus on her immigration credentials. Last time Chishti opposed something was over the illegal pro-roguing of Parliament by Boris Johnson. He voted against the bill initially as it was safe to do so but then subsequently he voted it through. But to see the good in what he has done, this is a major contribution towards racial harmony in an area full of knuckle dragging white supremacists in Medway and Mr Chishti should be applauded for this. I wait to see what happens on Friday 5th May for my final analysis. I note that the Tories are now fighting like cats in a sack over this trumped up issue and look forward to the eventual climbdown. In case Rehman is looking, here is my answer to immigration and asylum in just two minutes. Having gone this far, it is time to lead Rehman. Who knows, Mr Chishti may well cross the floor to Labour again or The Lib Dems as he did many years ago in order to win the 2010 General Election in my area.

I am tired of Tories who pretend that local politics has nothing to do with national policies. In this context, I ask that you support my campaign to GET THE TORIES OUT. My campaign in 2019 demonstrated that if I’d campaigned seriously I’d have a fighting chance to wreak some serious damage. This time I will adopt a longer term and more serious approach to the matter.

April Brexit Fools

By Don Adamson, Brexorcist and Saboteur First Class

This week’s homework: 1930s Japan has been described as a period of ‘Brainless Patriotism’ An out of control government embarked on mad, bad and dangerous policies. This led to a terrible war with tragic consequences for millions of people. In this country we have an out of control government that is full of ‘Brainless Patriotism’ and which carries out mad, bad and dangerous policies. The Labour Party has nothing to say about this except vague assurances about ‘making Brexit work.’ If you are going to steal ideas from other people (Japanese or anybody else) would make sense to steal ideas that are otherwise than mad, bad and dangerous.

Therese Coffey has been dumping infected gammon into supermarkets. In other news, she was seen with a wooden leg … Cannabalism is suspected after Iain Duncan Smith was seen running away from the scene.

This week’s quotes: “What Gary Lineker taught us about taking a stand… The BBC, its board stuffed by Tory culture warriors caved in … Lineker has a history of anti racist statements … Tory decision to wage a culture war has left no middle ground … progressive people were dismayed by Labour’s stand on the ‘Illegal immigration bill’ … ‘it would not work’ rather than its cruelty … beyond awful … unfairness and hypocrisy behind the BBC response … Lineker spoke for all of us … Tories bereft of answers …  Lineker activated a mass of discontent among BBC journalists … who are clearly sick of the Tory appointed managers … Hunt’s budget proves that Brexit is only paying off in a parallel universe … Britain is living in an alternate reality … surreal world where the government lives … the rest of us can see the damage that Brexit is doing … Office of Budget Responsibility … showing how Brexit is wrecking everything, everywhere, all at once … economy is 4% small than if we had stayed in the EU& .. the only opportunities from Brexit are lost opportunities … costing the government a fortune … without Brexit we could have increased NHS and social spending by  from around £184B to about 327B… government is still borrowing lots of money … the largest tax burden ever … hard to get debt on a downward path … disastrous fall in living standards … slashed long term growth and little sign of it improving … good news for the very rich … huge tax breaks for the wealthy …

Don’t Pannick

Don Adamson writes from the leafy dales of Yorkshire … well actually Barnsley but never mind.

This week’s homework:

1. Q Why does Lord David Pannick KC wear silly spectacles? A Because it requires very bad eyesight to view Johnson as innocent … Q Is Johnson innocent? A Don’t be silly …  2. Cocaine makes a person manipulative and vindictive. Most of the politicians who inflicted Brexit on us are manipulative and vindictive. Are they all on cocaine or are some of them naturally like that?   3. In the dim and distant past comedians (if that is the right word) like Boardman, Davidson and Manning used to tell crass and offensive jokes about ethnic minorities. Such jokes are seldom heard on TV and radio these days. All over the world people telling anti Brexit jokes that depict the British as being rather dim. Are these anti-Brexit jokes as crass and offensive as the ethnic minority jokes used to be? 

This week’s quotes:

“USA generated more electricity from renewable energy than coal for the first time last year … ideological fanaticism, economic restlessness and a predilection for alternative facts … Brexit’s poisonous aftermath  … a recipe for gridlock and fragility … good government rather than slogans is the way … Britain’s nutty megaprojects … we never learn from past mistakes and let politics trump prudence … haste, hubris, political deadlines and ignoring the experts all played their part … another crackdown on anti-social behaviour … serious crimes like rape go unpunished, critics ask why the government is launching a push against anti social behaviour … People of Somalia have emitted roughly as much carbon dioxide since 1960 as Americans have done in the past two and half days … well connected people and ‘ruling elites’ play by different rules … Rich Chinese favour Singapore as a destination for their wealth … its political stability is a bonus for those wary of the roller coasters of American and British politics … (COMMENT: Interesting contrast to that Singapore on Thames that Gammons say so much about) … the reckless mendacity of Johnson and the self harming intransigence of the Democratic Unionist Party have done more for the prospects of a united Ireland than IRA Bombing ever did … The vindictive ecstasy of Braverman’s theatre of cruelty … Tory Refugee policy … they lie, we know they lie, they know we know … they persist in lying to rub our noses into the realisation that evidence no longer matters … cruel people get off on cruelty … when confronted with a video of migrants fleeing though Kigali during a massacre, Braverman remained deadpan and trotted out her lines …

Vote for the Tories on May 6th if you support killing children fleeing from terror …

Tories play to an audience that takes vicarious pleasure from seeing ministers dead bat all facts and evidence  … the dead end that Tories have created for themselves … having achieved hard Brexit they can no longer blame Brussels for everything … presides over economic  stagflation and a debt to GDP ratio of 100% … after the disaster of the Thick Lizzie experiment … there is no way out … all it has left are enemies … the horrible truth is that cocktail of joyous anger can work for a while … but it cannot lead to Conservatism in the future … it is obvious to most people that we are heading for climate chaos … Scumbag’s government cannot beat doctors, teachers, nurses because the economics are flowing the other way … it fails to revive the Tories in the polls … will leave its stain …  the wonderful Mandela quote: ‘Everything is impossible  until you make it happen … Richy Scumbag is conscious how toxic the word ‘Conservative’ has become … May, Thick Lizzie, Johnson, Dominic Raas, Amok Sharma, Said Avid, Tom Tugendhat and a large number of other Tories have dropped ‘Conservative’ from their Social Media bios … UK has handed over £175 million to the French to put a halt to small boats crossing the Channel … rumour that Paul Dacre’s name had disappeared from Johnson’s long delayed resignation honours list … connected to phone hacking and intrusion case that Prince Harry, Elton John and others are bringing against Rothermere newspapers … Richy Scumbag appears reconciled to losing 1,000 seats in next month’s local elections … Johnson is grimly reconciled to the fact that he is a busted flush … Tories face problems finding candidates for local and general elections … The Tories’ future is Rejoin … the Tories exist only to win elections – they will soon twig  that one path to doing that involves dumping Brexit … Tories have no permanent friends only permanent interests. That interest is to get into power and stay there … Tories will lose the next election … their one and only priority will be getting back into power … if the Tories find that backing Brexit is the road to political oblivion they will drop it  like a hot potato … newly elected leader will denounce the ‘impossible dreams of Brexit’ … ‘rigid dogma’ … ‘misplaced irrelevance to real needs’ … current leadership will not do that yet … their attacks on ‘wokeism’ and ‘lefty lawyers’ are pathetic attempts to snatch victory from the jaws of victory … the reality is becoming all too clear: one day, sooner than you think, the Tories will come out in favour of rejoining the EU. They will have to if they want to win further elections…  Latest survey of issues that matters to voters has immigration fifth on the list behind the economy, cost of living, National Health Service  … and a lack of faith in politicians…

Reboot Britain
Have I got Fake Brexit News for EU

Mail, Sun, Express and Telegraph see it as a badge of honour that efforts to curb immigration ‘human rights to the limit’ … fact checking ministerial pronouncements is not a priority for the Mail … we are not the automatic country of choice for refugees … there is no evidence to support ministerial assertions … GB New … retoxifying public discourse … Mail’s ‘infamous’ flirtation with Fascism in the 1930s … we need young people to work and pay taxes yet we are busting a gut to exclude healthy young people who are willing to do both … Tories are tilting the electoral odds in their favour by making it difficult for groups likely to vote against them …  unfolding economic crisis and string of bad news stories led to soul search and Bregret … UK falls significantly behind other European countries in adoption of new technology … antiquated British production lines … Britain is on course for a £62B investment gap … per capita income in the EU grew by 8.5% from 2016 to 2022 … Britain saw 3.8% growth … we are on track to fall behind. Consequent effect on British living standards could be grave … erosion of infrastructural base … We face a post Brexit world without the tools to make it alone … we need high quality education … for competitiveness UK slid 7 places … the sunlit uplands are a long way off … country is barely limping … Brexit has been a disaster for the economy … we sink into obscurity with only memories of a golden past … Brexit cost me £290 per month … I cannot identify a Brexit dividend … biggest con trick since the Trojan Horse but with far more negative consequences … witless denials of Brexit impacts … the majority in favour of Rejoin can only increase … let Johnson rot … proven liar and disgrace … Brexit relegated English football … When England left the EU rules on transfers changed … when talented Irish player Kevin Zefi signed for Inter Milan the headline ran ‘Grazie alla Brexit … we are disadvantaged … it is just another bureaucratic nightmare created by Brexit and the diminution of one of the few industries where we still lead the world … Britain’s tax system is flawed … infested with complications … incentives chicanery …beneficial for the rich … bad for the public purse … property taxes poorly designed … encourages tweaking and gimmicks rather than coherent strategy … the losses from eliminating exemptions would be concentrated on just a handful of groups, benefits of simplification and efficiency would be diffuse …British voters have developed a taste for technocracy after years of chaos … 61% of Brits said ‘having experts not government make decisions would be good … Brexit was one system of Tory estrangement from modern British capitalism … Richy Scumbag is styled as a ‘fixer’ … shows an appetite for gimmicks … in many areas Scumbag offers no fixes at all because they are politically ‘off limits’ … fixing an imbalance between anticipated revenues and outlays can be solved in two ways: raising taxes or reducing benefits … there is a magical third solution of increasing immigration to make the ratio between retirees and workers more manageable … why do billionaires get a free ride? …  Truss was wrong … IMF is predicting that UK will shrink by 0.3% -the worst performing economy in the developed world … Truss was always going to spook the markets … We have a country in stagnation … a workforce permanently reduced by Covid … our trade and potential are being hammered by Brexit … the only realistic chance is to grow the economy … we need politicians prepared to defeat Alice in Wonderland arguments …  Brexit has brought chaos to the education sector … If you cannot get students to come to the home of English to study English then something has gone very wrong … Brexit shambles … Bad decision in 2016 with disastrous consequences … Kafkaesque … devastating effect … put red tape and confusion into a system that had worked well for years … education contributed over £1b every year and supported 17,200 jobs … Brexit killed this … many previous customers taking their business to other destinations … The best place to learn English is now Ireland … hardly surprising … plagued with problems … worst is yet to come … research done by UK universities is most at risk … decline was driven by Brexit … Johnson and Princess Nut Nuts have given occasional glimpses into their Gatsbyesque lifestyle … Lady Carole Bamford, wife of JCB heir, provides luxurious free accommodation … visited the Heathrow VIP suite an astonishing 20 times  since he left office … £40,000 worth of free hospitality … Richy Scumbag disclosed that Murdoch was the only individual who wined and dined him … it is not the electorate but the likes of Murdoch who decide what happens … Times has a new columnist from the Telegraph … puerile tosh, dull, appallingly badly written … I know they publish rubbish but this is a work of art even for them … forlorn hope of Paul Dacre acquiring an honour … blame Brexit for wrecking the UK … if we are looking for an elite to blame we need look no further than the privileged gang that brought us Brexit … almost entirely the work of opportunistic privately educated boys from Oxford … working class Brits and pensioners worst hit … pitiful record … shameful … repulsive … bigotry … deeply unpatriotic … new elite leading the country to perdition … Brexit is going badly; by June 2041 we will be hard pressed to find anybody who admitted voting for it … history will not be kind … Ireland is looking confident, vibrant, energetic and at ease with itself, membership of the EU is a large part of that … It is easier for the Brextremists to indulge in anti Irish tropes than to confront reality … there has been little coherence in anything that has followed Brexit … a government that is trying to run one of the world’s largest economies with fag end idea formulated in the 1970s … It is obvious that the UK has run out of ideas … Brexit is stupid …inexplicable decisions, bloody mindedness and entirely foreseeable problems … self sabotaging … Kafkaesque … significantly higher costs … incredibly frustrating process … so much wasted time … tortuous red tape … extra cost … blizzard of paperwork … no short term wins … self defeating isolation … “

Little Britain

Little Britain roundup

I’m at something of a loss to know where to begin this week. I’ll start with a progress check on the five goals necessary to commit Brexit to an early grave:

Reboot Britain goals

Breaking Parliamentary Paralysis

Regards Parliamentary Paralysis (Goal No 1), the unholy Brexit alliance of Labour and Conservatives remains in tact, in spite of compelling evidence that Brexit isn’t working and now over 60% of people in Britain realise that. Some fine words were spoken by Hillary Benn, Yvette Cooper and a few others at Monday’s Brexit Inquiry review, but more is needed. Please see our article at Scottish Bylines for a full analysis of Labour’s untenable position on the B word including an interview with former MEP Denis MacShane.

The local elections are a good opportunity to send messages to your councillors about Brexit. Many are running scared of their party’s position on Brexit as this hilarious Twitter post shows between my Tory Councillor who denies any link between Brexit and local affairs. Sadly Labour are in the same boat. Let them know that Brexit doesn’t pay. Above all else, vote and vote for non-Tories.

Increasing MSM footprint

Goal No 2 concerns increasing our footprint in mainstream media (MSM). We have always needed more people who can cut through on mainstream media in meaningful ways rather than just being used as a backdrop in the Guardian or on Channel 4 News. Marina Purkiss is one such talent. James O’Brien another. Ian Hislop and Rosie Holt plus others. Here’s Marina’s surgical destruction of Jacob Rees-Mogg’s “war on woke”. We need many more such people to act in the media. Letters work, radio phone calls, all the way up to articles, books and TV appearances. Learn how to begin the work here. Whilst we are on the subject, write a letter to King Charles III on the occasion of his coronation. Watch Marina’s masterpiece on GB News:

18th century Latin student Mogg destroyed by Marina Purkiss

The work of the Holy Mole show should also be amplified much more. Please see Holy Mole. Their work is of superior quality to the now watered down Now Show on BBC Radio 4.

Holy Mole !!

Increasing social media amplification

Social media amplification (Goal No 3) remains key and everyone can do it. In the wake of a tsunami of fake news, it is essential that we fight fiction with full facts. Join our Anti-Brexit Virus Super Spreader Group on Facebook. We have something similar on Twitter. Send me a message to join.

I attended the Extinction Rebellion event, made some street videos and did a performance, making clear the connections between the national disaster of Brexit with the global catastrophe of Climate Change. Having been branded as a “thwarter” by Jacob Rees-Mogg and his kind, I invite you to join me as CTOs (Chief Thwarting Officers). See these Twitter posts:

Mass Brexorcisms

Goal No 4 is the slowest of all goals, but one of the most important. We need to actively move the dial on how people feel about Brexit to 70% who think it was a mistake. We cannot wait for people to die. Please read a copy of the books Reboot Britain and Private Eyelines for a heady cocktail of the psychology, sociology and therapeutic insights into mindset change for people who experienced nuclear levels of attack by Tory / UKIP lies about Brexit. Here is an approximation of the inside view of a typical Brexiteer’s brain. This is the raw material for Brexorcism. Click the image to read the books:


Strengthening our relationship with Europe

Goal No 5 requires an international network and slow continuous work inside the corridors of power. We host meetings to cultivate and coach such people. Our next event will be on Wed 8 May at 8 pm on ZOOM. UK in a Changing Europe lead the field in this area and I am also connected with some former European Movement seniors who are quietly forging ahead with preserving our integrity with people who matter in Europe.

Finally, I have decided to stand for election in 2024 to make sure that Brexit doesn’t pay. Please support our project to do this by clicking on the Tory Brexit ERG Scum picture below. This is a long haul effort to make any significant impact and funding is needed NOW to register the party and get some basic leafletting done.

And just a reminder of some of the people we are targeting:

The Brexit Black Hole

By Adrian Ekins-Daukes – former Conservative Councillor, Tunbridge Wells

The Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt, went to considerable lengths in his budget speech to cover up the extent of the black hole in Britain’s finance’s, largely attributable to Brexit and deepened by Liz Truss’s and Kwasi Kwarteng’s mini-budget in their brief period in power.  His fantasies, however, that Brexit is going to plan and delivering successes come up against the real world inhabited by most of us, where the damage caused by Brexit becomes ever plainer.  The facts provided by the Office of Budget Responsibility (OBR) and other authorities are set out below.


The OBR had  confirmed its view prior to the budget that Brexit has reduced  the UK economy by 4% lower than it would have been had  we stayed in the EU.  Without Brexit, the money saved could, in theory, have increased spending on the NHS and social care from around £148bn to £327bn.  Since in practice no government would have spent the whole of such a sum, the real cost of Brexit would probably be £40-£50 billion per annum.

The budget makes clear that the government is still borrowing heavily – the equivalent of 5.1% of GDP in 2023/24, dropping in phases to 1.7% in 2027/28.  Without the Brexit “black hole”, that borrowing would have been lower and the  interest burden less.  Both the Institute for Fiscal Studies and the OBR, in their comments on the budget, stressed the seriousness of the difficulties facing our economy, notably the largest tax burden in years on and huge levels of borrowing But there also difficulties other than the black hole which impede diminishing it.


OBR forecasts a fall of a further 6% in disposable household income over the next two years – the biggest drop in living standards since records began, a lower level than that before the pandemic and the worst record for any major economy.  According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the UK will have the worst economic performance of the G20 in 2023 (the  20 largest economies including sanctions-hit Russia) The UK economy will shrink this year by 0.3% in 2023 before growing by 1% next year.  Other major economies are forecast to grow in 2023 except that of Germany, which is forecast to drop less than ours.


The Chancellor is well aware of economic policies capable of stimulating the economy.  Investment is one, and he has devised tax incentives to encourage  businesses to invest.  However, his own figures show this will only be bring forward expected business investment, not create more of it.  As for new investment from abroad, there is little prospect of regaining the UK’s position as top recipient in Europe of foreign investment when we were in the EU.  The attraction of our market was largely due to free access to the EU single market.  Without that access, our market alone lacks the same attraction.

A boost in trade would be another path to economic recovery, improving productivity and keeping prices down.  Here, however, the OBR prediction is a 15% fall, due to post-Brexit disruption and red tape. The Brexiteer future vision of “global Britain” involves imposing costs and obstacles on previously highly profitable trade with our nearest neighbours, whilst attempting to divert our trade pattern to far off markets on the other side of the globe, where our exports will be subject to high shipping costs and high environmental impact, language differences and other costs and barriers.   It is calculated that our much-trumpeted accession to the Pacific Trade Area will boost GDP by just 0.08%, no substitute for the 4% lost by leaving the EU.  We would need 50 of such trade deals just to stand still.  There are not 50 trading blocs in the world and, as yet we are not trading with the people of Uranus.  It would seem that the Liz Truss’ thinking on growth is coming from ‘heranus’ and not Uranus.


One measure in the budget is the removal of the total limit that people can save into their pension pots.  The purpose of this is claimed to be to encourage retired doctors back to work, thus relieving pressures on the NHS.  Whether or not it has this effect, the benefit goes much wider, granting tax breaks to the best-off 1% (e.g. bankers, hedge fund managers, development moguls as well as senior doctors), at a cost to the tax payer of £1 billion a year.


Joining the EU and creating the EU Single Market provided the opportunities to raise our economy from being the Sick Man of Europe where it languished in the late 1960s/70s.  Follow this path by restoring our close economic relationships with the EU as soon as possible.

Speaking of black holes, please vote the Tory aliens out on May 04.

Plan B for Brexit

From Don Adamson

This week’s homework: Starmer tells us that everything will be just too tickety boo for words so long as we all pretend that he can make Brexit work. The Brexit earthly paradise that Starmer promises but cannot deliver will be a Labour Party earthly paradise so of course it will be a vast improvement on the earthly paradise that Tories promise but cannot deliver. Does Starmer have Plan B for what happens when he finds that he cannot make Brexit work?

This week’s quote: “Slashing spending is not a plausible option … radical rethinking is required … tumultuous decade has weakened the British Civil Service… fiasco … calamity can strike … civil service is institutionally weakened and vulnerable … highest staff turnover in a decade … evaluated and shown to be unsuccessful … government works best when those involved  trust each other … years of political crisis have driven them apart … years of chaos … much too pliant in the face of Johnson’s lawbreaking … a recipe for blunders … if ministers want a more professional civil service they must professionalise themselves first … civil service needs more independence from ministers … needs a new legal duty to uphold propriety and inform parliament about breaches of laws and ministerial codes … Rwanda scheme would not be a deterrent … external scrutiny would force up quality … and have side effect of revealing when ministers ignore sound advice … it is a terrible waste … End of the Johnson clown show? … the mood was less jolly … an entire appendix of awkwardness … he looks done for … his chances of hitting the heights again look slim … austerity has damaged front line policing with the especially dire effect on the way sexual offences are dealt with … a woman raped and left in a coma would be likely to be dealt with by a single trainee detective… Richy Scumbag is not as dishonest as Johnson … nor as economically illiterate as Thick Lizzie … such a low bar as to be meaningless … Johnson beat all his predecessors combined in the lying stakes…

Surround Parliament

Surround Parliament

Join Extinction Rebellion to surround Parliament from Saturday 21 April. Whilst I’m sure some will wish to go at le weekend, the imperative is to keep this protest alive into the following week when MPs return to Parliament. For this reason, it is imperative that people stage their efforts to run into Monday 23rd April and beyond. Parliament must be brought to a standstill. I’m not even sure that it will make any difference to our lives on a day to day basis. They are only interested in themselves. Brexit makes climate change more pronounced with moral hazard, a bonfire on environmental laws and Tory greenwashing.

Surround Parliament
Surround Parliament

Broken Britain

Don Adamson reviews the week – there’s not enough time to get it all done within a short article !!

This week’s homework: Discuss the following statement. We used to have a system in this country. When the Tories ran out of steam Labour would take over for a while. When Labour ran out of steam the Tories would take over. It did not make for great government but it did provide for failure. That system does not work anymore. Tories have proved themselves unfit to govern and show no indication of having learned the error of their ways. Labour has been AWOL since 2010 and shows no indication of wanting to form a government. The only answer they have for inexcusable standard of government that we have is that Labour makes vague and unconvincing promises ‘to make Brexit work.’ To quote Shakespeare: A plague on both their houses. We have local government elections coming up. Vote for anybody, repeat anybody, who wants to Rejoin the EU.

This week’s quotes: “Thick Lizzie and Toilet Kwarteng broke the economy … this budget is returning to Trussonomics… huge benefits for the rich … higher taxes and worse public services for the rest of us … good ideas that clash with Brexit ideology … useless ideas, waste of time and money but the Brexiters like it … incomes fall by further 6% … biggest drop in living standards since records began .. worst record for any major economy … rocked by post Brexit disruption …  Global Britain is a lie … £29B in lost investment … future growth is unlikely to take off … lower growth because of Brexit, higher taxes because of Brexit and worse public services because of Brexit … throwing billions at the wealthiest … Brexit has made everything worse … As always in Tory Britain, there is one rule for them and another for the rest of us …  Tory MPs breathless excitement at the news that Richy Scumbag was not as totally useless as Johnson and Thick Lizzie … Daily (Once was a real newspaper) Telegraph …. in other news you are unlikely to hear … Rwanda has so far picked up £140M for the deportation scheme at the time that the number of asylum seekers sent there was zero … What Sue Ellen Braverman calls invasion has been a continuous process throughout history … there is no precise distinction between British and non British life forms … never mind the facts … atavistic fear of invasion … hard to say which is more dismaying … politicians compete as to who can be the nastiest … to the most desperate people on earth … Braverman’s nasty public image … Rwanda policy is doomed … as is Richy Scumbag’s pledge to stop boats crossing … UK is abdicating an essential responsibility under international law … Rwanda’s problematical track record on human rights … British government’s message is baffling … even more nonsensical … the site Braverman visited is nothing to do with the UK … smoke and mirrors with nothing behind them … sadistic bait … UK receives small number of asylum seekers than even most European countries … British government policy serves to enrich and empower people smugglers … do we compromise with reality or continue the current deadly charade … toxicity of the asylum debate … ridiculous backlog of claims … realism needs to enter the debate …  so long as there is profit people smugglers will enable that behaviour …  ridiculous … government is  taking the public for fools … promising something it cannot deliver … decent economic growth has escaped the Tory government for all 13 years of its tenure … Braverman’s Rwanda policy is the worst of all the options … no PM has abused powers in such a manner in the last 50 years …

Johnson’s hypocrisy … taxpayer footing the bills … Johnson has made £3.5M and counting … Murdoch talks of being Scottish … he is whatever is expedient for tax purposes … little fraternisation between Daily Mail top brass and Richy Scumbag … Richy Scumbag is in no hurry to sign off the peerage for Dacre … he could do without yet another sleaze scandal … Braverman is awful … scandals … idiotic remarks … fault is not with her but with those who over promoted her … not up to the job … Scumbag is scared of the not sensible wing of his party … Tories have run out of ideas … out of control … desperation leads to bad choices …  Braverman gets a free ride for a calculated lie … Tories abandoned the British manufacturing industry in 1979 …

Trump’s dwindling but increasingly unhinged fan base … Brexit is most  embarrassing unforced error since Villa keeper let a throw in into his net … Inflation in Britain rose to 10.4% in February … machinery and structure of British government need reform …

Dump Trump

Johnson’s blustering testimony to Parliament reminded us what we had not been missing … less experienced officials acre in more senior posts …  ministers have eroded the tradition that officials provide candid advice … the planning system makes quagmires look slick … taxation will reach a lost war high this year … not producing better results … bleak picture …
