Parliament Does Its Job


Recommended Posts

Well at least a small part of it does. That part is The European Scrutiny Committee, and they've scrutinised:


"This is a historic referendum that will determine the future of our country. We have to warn the voters,”


"Our report is clear that the only way in which the Prime Minister's negotiations could be given the legally binding and irreversible effect which he himself has called for, even for minor reforms to the EU, let alone a fundamental change in the UK's relationship with the EU, would be through treaty amendment, or the equivalent agreement of a protocol.


"Whatever the promises made in the negotiations, there is no certainty that they will be delivered to the British people. Voters in the forthcoming referendum must be aware of this when they make their choice as to whether to vote to remain in the EU or to leave the EU.”


Is there a single person in this country that trusts Duplicitous Dave to deliver on any more of his "cast iron" promises?  His record is abysmal, and this time he'll be gone by the time his cheque is presented. There are 27 huge reasons why nothing will ever be delivered, and why the EU will continue on its merry way to obliterating our country from the world map!


..senior MPs said that Mr Cameron's new deal for Britain could be torn apart by European judges following Britain's referendum.


And in a withering assessment of Mr Cameron's plans, the European Scrutiny Committee said that Mr Cameron's aim to exempt Britain from the founding EU principle of 'ever closer union' is neither "legally significant” nor "fundamental change”, and will do nothing to return powers to Britain.


This is by far the most important vote we'll ever be allowed in our lifetime. The result won't be for five years, it will affect our children and many generations yet unborn.  Cameron has said their won't be a second chance, and there at least he's right: a YES vote will be for keeps, but a NO vote will be spun into a maybe - we'll still need to be vigilant.


There will be an attempt to make the British public believe that a Yes vote is a vote for the status quo, and that a No vote will be playing with fire, and terribly terribly risky.  The bald truth is that there is no status quo on offer!  It's the German way and total loss of our democracy, or we get our country back!  Simples!  Any politico that tries to spin it otherwise needs to be put in their place, and reminded who they serve.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.

      Rather than the little local difficulty we've been fed by the media it rather looks like the second spanish civil war is about to break out.  A complete mishandling of the matter by Madrid being the major factor.  What we are seeing in Spain is what we've always been careful to avoid in the UK.  It's also what could easily have happened if there had been an EU-style attempt to ignore or overturn the referendum result.
      The Catalans seem to be going about it in the right way in launching their own currency.  If only the Greeks had had this much sense, or at least the sense to ignore the ECB and let the printing presses run whilst they still had the ability.  Spain's plot to use Brexit to enslave the Gibraltarians is now looking like a silly joke, as yet another plank of the remainer case (the allegedly sensitive Gibraltar issue) is kicked away.
      Will the Basques seize this opportunity, or will the EU's mounting problems surface somewhere else first?  The Leave campaign said we needed to be clear of the EU as soon as possible to avoid getting dragged into the looming mess with British forces becoming involved - we are not clear yet!

      Well, he's the closest thing to Max Headroom to grace our screens for a while, but here's a hilarious example of a genuine EU bot at work (len Eldritch simply thinks he is being EU trolled):
      More work needed on the code I think.  Yes, this is how a sizeable chunk of our EU contributions are being spent, and where money they blackmail May into handing over will find its way toward!   Please remember this when a politico tells you there is no money for something important in our own community.
      There's a recent Guardian article about social media bots here.

      ...your "State of the Union" (now where have we heard that one before?) speech has gone down amazingly well in the UK.  It confirms everything the Leave campaign said about where the EU was surely headed.  I've now lost count of the number of if-only-we-had-known newspaper articles, and forum posts from people who voted Remain.  You've provided them with a admirable rationalisation for their change of mind.
      There never was a "Remain" status quo to vote for, as it was always your way or no way!  I suspect ever-increasing numbers of our continental cousins will be telling you "no way!" from now on.  The reactions to TM's speech in Florence on 22nd September are going to be... er.. interesting!

      Yes, another of the flagship promises to the gullible has bitten the dust.  What they were told would happen is now happening with a vengeance.

      Now that the honeymoon period is over mobile charges are shooting up to compensate for the loss of revenue, so the only people to now benefit are a highly select number of highly mobile people, and you can guess what social group they are over represented in.
      Personally I've seen my monthly PAYG charges bumped on both my continental SIMs.  But it's worse: you used to be able to buy a SIM card without a costly monthly contract, but when I walked into a phone shop recently expecting to be able to buy one for occasional calls on a new smartwatch, I was practically told to take a walk.  that's despite having all the necessary documents, ID cards, and tax certificates that continental bureaucracy require.  I eventually acquired one by reading loads of foreign smallprint on a double up scheme. This involved several trips to two shops, and an over the counter confrontation which involved calls to the network for permission - in fact the card was practically thrown at me.  It's still not enabled though!
      You can't believe a word of EU propaganda, and in particular you can't believe a word of what is appearing in the EU compliant continental press. People have been led to believe that the UK is in total crisis, and Brits are deeply regretting their mistake.  This really is Orwellian in its implications.
