IDENTITY:

January 1, 2018

GREAT! to see that the ‘old’ U.K. passport is making a comeback. But because of modern technology (fitting in machines etc) it can’t be exactly like it was. But for those who yearn for the real McCoy, make a wallet and put your new pseudo ‘old’ passport in it! This wallet is made from cardboard taken from a street map and the new passport slips inside. A piece of plastic is stapled to the inside back to keep it in place. The image is copied from the Net and pasted on the front – voila! Identity back!

ORDER, ORDER:

December 19, 2017

Newspapers have been blamed for the vitriolic reaction from social media towards those M.P.s who defeated the government over Brexit.
Newspapers have been around long before the Internet was even conceived and their existence has played a major role in British democracy. It’s not up to journalism to change its tune but for social media to put its house in order.

PLEASE SIR CAN I GO TO THE TOILET?

December 16, 2017

How demeaning to see Britain grovelling to the E.U. mandarins to come to a trade deal. Apparently our homework is now good enough and we can now go out to play. I know that the “divorce” is complicated and people’s wealth and livelihoods are at stake but is it worth losing our dignity. No one really knows if we would be better or worse off without a deal. In the short term I suspect that there would be job losses and standards of living would fall but we would have recovered from that and retained our self respect.

THE TRANSITION PERIOD:

The E.U. proposes to sanction the U.K. if it breaks the rules of the transition agreement. This period is intended to smooth the transition from our current trading arrangements with the E.U. and those which we want to sign with other countries. However if these new conditions prevent the U.K. from preparing for this there doesn’t seem to be much point in it; we might as well reconsider the trade deal and leave next year. A lot of countries in the E.U. have now become disenchanted with the whole project and do not want to lose any more sovereignty and some are courting a similar exit. It may be better for the E.U. to re-think the whole idea and consider something similar to the original “common market” model (Treaty of Rome 1957).

THE SPIRIT OF BREXIT

October 3, 2017

“I mean this is Magna Carta, it’s the Burgesses coming at Parliament, it’s the great Reform Bill, it’s the bill of rights, it’s so many… It’s Waterloo, it’s Agincourt, it’s Crecy, We win all these things.”

BLOOMBERG GETS A SLAPPING DOWN:

He has no idea “what it is like to watch one’s country surrendering its laws, money and borders by stealth to a remote and unaccountable bureaucracy”.

INSINCERITY:

July 8, 2017

The BBC has come under increasing criticism over its Brexit coverage.

A spokeswoman denies the criticism by saying, “The BBC takes impartiality incredibly seriously and we are covering Brexit developments in depth by examining all the perspectives and arguments. We have a wide range of voices on air and will continue to do so.”
“incredibly” – Why not simply say “The BBC takes impartiality seriously or very seriously “? This over-used word often suggests insincerity. Is the use of this word a superlative or a “Freudian slip”? The word “incredible” means unbelievable! The BBC should get its act together and play fair.

NICE ONE BORIS!

May 16, 2017

Britain shouldn’t be forced into conditional and protracted negotiations over different aspects of Brexit.
Each topic should be discussed independently on its own merit.
