BIT hard to work out where to start this week. Probably finding myself in a similar position as our new prime minister! I did consider the speed Theresa May met up with Nicola Sturgeon was almost bordering on the obscene. The statement issued afterwards was even more so. Do the rest of the British public have to now actually wait until some sort of appeasing deal can be worked out with Scotland and the EU before we are able to invoke Article 50 and get on with the new future the majority of the UK voted for?
If this is a sample of the new tough leadership and firm decision making we’ve been told to expect, we’re in trouble already. In a wholly democratic event, the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU. That should be the end of the story. If others are not happy with the result, let them hold their referendums or whatever’s and if necessary butt out, allowing those who elected to leave, to get out and get on with it. Any dithering can only be detrimental to our new role in world affairs and is a disgraceful, non-democratic action, instigated by petulant losers who are now busy throwing their toys out of the pram; which is perfectly ok as long as those elected by the British public can be trusted not to scrabble about on the floor picking them up.
Horror, sympathy and sorrow at the tragic events in Nice last week. How many of these same atrocities will have to take place in the UK before we declare war and really begin to do something about it? GB naturally stopped its enemies entering the country in world WW2. If it was common sense then, why are the same policies not being instigated now?
Interesting to see the coup was thwarted in Turkey mainly due to the public taking to the streets and siding with President Tayyip Erdogan. I suppose that wouldn’t have anything to do with the fact that untold thousands of them are already packed for the trip to Europe!? Just a thought.
Keep the faith
