MERKEL COMES CLEAN

By Pete Moore On September 11th, 2019 at 7:36 pm

This is what the Euro-commies are really afraid of –

Angela Merkel has highlighted the economic danger posed by Britain if it is allowed to become a Singapore-on-Thames as Boris Johnson’s Brexit envoy outlined a plan to ditch the UK’s commitments to stay aligned to the EU’s social and environmental standards.

In talks with European commission officials, the prime minister’s negotiator, David Frost, insisted that the UK is seeking a “clean break” from an array of the bloc’s regulations, a policy choice from the new British government that has caused alarm in other EU capitals.

This is the point of leaving the EU – to control our own destiny. We can choose to be like Singapore or like Cuba, but we insist on the the right to choose our own path for our own country.

Theresa May agreed a withdrawal treaty with the EU which would have prevented us from doing that. It would have obligated us to stay aligned with a huge raft of backward EU rules in many areas. Let’s be clear: it was not a “deal” but a putative international treaty, enforceable by law. That is not leaving the EU by any measure.

The EU wanted it so because it knows that a sovereign, independent and self-governing UK can easily be so much more dynamic than it is now, when free of the wealth and job-destroying EU. We would trounce them.

Of course it “causes alarm in European capitals”. Not among Europeans of course, many of whom would want to join their compatriots who have already come here, all the better to share our bountiful riches. A dynamic, super-Singapore on their doorstep would hasten the end of the EU’s days.

This is also the greatest fear among our Remoaners. For all their shrieking about a “no-deal” Brexit, their real fear, which they are too cowardly to voice, is that no-deal would be a doorway to that brighter future. The Remain establishment would never recover from it.

Whichever way you cut it, the opposition to a wealthier and better future is rooted solely in political and bureaucratic self-interest.

ACTIVIST JUDGES NOW DESTROYING THE CONSTITUTION

By Pete Moore On September 11th, 2019 at 7:08 pm

A coven of Scots Euro-commie activist judges today declared, on appeal, that the prorogation of Parliament is unlawful. The Edinburgh Court of Session ruling does not cancel prorogation, though many anti-demicrat MPs have pretended otherwise. The real showdown will be in the Supreme Court next week when the government’s appeal is heard. Crucial to the absurd ruling is the idea that the Prime Minister misled the Queen in advising her to prorogue Parliament.

A few thoughts.

The judges have no idea what advice the Prime Minister gave to the Queen. Anything which passes between her and her Prime Minister is strictly confidential. Always has been, always will be.

The ruling effectively dissolves the central tenet of of the constitution, that of Royal Prerogative powers. The moment the Queens assents to Parliament being prorogued, she takes it over and owns the decision. It is her prorogation of her Parliament. It is entirely lawful because she has the absolute and sole right to prorogue Parliament. To rule that it is unlawful is patently absurd.

Having failed (so far) to overturn our decision to leave the EU, Remoaners are increasingly attempting to have it litigated away. Yes, it is entirely right and fair to criticise activist judges to who entertain these attempts. An independent and impartial judiciary is one of our great gifts to the world. That European courts are relative strangers to such notions has long informed British attitudes to them. But judges can’t hide behind the idea of being independent and impartial, safe from criticism, if they are clearly anything but independent and impartial.

WORST FASCIST EVER

By Pete Moore On September 11th, 2019 at 6:51 pm

International students will be allowed to stay in the UK for two years after graduation to find a job, under new proposals announced by the Home Office.

The move reverses a decision made in 2012 by then-Home Secretary Theresa May that forced overseas students to leave four months after finishing a degree.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the change would see students “unlock their potential” and begin careers in the UK.

Note to the colonies: much of the British left, from wet Tories onward, have spent the last six weeks shrieking that Boris Johnson is far-right and a fascist. I know, if only. The truth is that Boris a very socially liberal and strongly in favour of high levels of immigration. The commies don’t know this because they are permanently set to “broadcast” and never to “receive”. Watching and listening long ago went out of vogue on the Left, so they never learn.

The Prime Ministers announcement today, allowing foreign students to hang around and stink up the place, would completely befuddle the commies if they ever learned of it. In fact it’s entirely in-keeping with the man’s outlook.

This song impacted me the first time that I heard it, it still resonates now.

May God bless all who lost so much that day.

I spent the first 72hrs after these events sitting alone in a ground control tower looking at 1000 parked planes. I’ll never be at peace…. but that’s just me

Roll Jordan Roll?

What do you make of an official running for election who announces if elected he will annex disputed territory, a unilateral move that will lead to obvious increase in violence and then have the gall to suggest a peace plan will follow. The mind boogles. And then, maybe it should be expected.

HERE WE GO

By Pete Moore On September 10th, 2019 at 7:26 pm

Something else we were told “would never happen”:

This is the EU’s Grand Poobah taking direct aim at national legislatures, at national sovereignty and the fiscal autonomy of democratically elected governments. Please, don’t delude yourselves that it’ll never happen. It’s happening. The EU is in perpetual motion toward ever greater union.

You can leave or be wholly subsumed and your nation abolished. That is the choice.

BOSH BOSH LOADSA DOSH

On the day that Grandad Semtex slams the Tories for “the biggest squeeze on wages since the Napoleonic wars”, more bad news for Labour:

Wages have continued to grow at a strong pace and employment remains at record highs, official figures show.

Earnings excluding bonuses grew at an estimated annual pace of 3.8% in the May to July period, down slightly from the previous reading.

Including bonuses, wages rose at an annual pace of 4% – the highest rate since mid-2008.

Some wage squeeze that is. All while the chaotic chaos of a chaotic cliff edge Brexit halts the economy!

JOHN BOLTON FIRED

By Pete Moore On September 10th, 2019 at 6:29 pm

US President Donald Trump says he has fired his National Security Adviser John Bolton.

“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House,” he wrote.

“I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions,” Mr Trump wrote, adding that a new national security adviser would be appointed next week.

The world is a little safer today. Bolton never heard a country mentioned without wondering how to preemptively bomb it. The wonder is that he got the gig in the first place. The disagreements could have been over Venezuela, Iran, Afghanistan or Syria. I suspect it was all of them.

The really interesting thing here is that the entire press pack was taken by surprise. “White House sources” is a line you always see when they’re pushing their daily bullshit. It turns out they have no sources.
