Opinion – Labour and Conservatives ‘in cross party talks to secure softer Brexit’ | The Independent – John Gelmini

In this latest piece from the Independent, via Dr Alf, I am starkly reminded of the story of the wolf and the piece of meat, eventually there will be no Brexit left.

Should these MPs have their way, there is every possibility that between them they will agree to pay the EU vast and unjustifiable amounts of money in an unnecessary “divorce ” settlement, thus creating a gigantic “stitch-up” of the people comparable to the theft of public money by the bankers and the global top families in the 2008 banking crisis which in this country has seen all the culprits walk away scot free.

May, far from clearing up the mess, is allowing it to be further compounded just as Lord Heseltine, the duplicitous Bilderberger, who brought down Margaret Thatcher along with the now dead Lord Howe, wants.

Boris needs to wield the knife quickly, clear out the present cabinet has-beens, replace all of them with new people and develop some backbone.

This is not the Bullingdon Club, the Eton Wall Game or a “jolly jape”, it is serious business and requires laser-like focus and obsession – and a no nonsense approach.

That done, and May consigned to suburban life in Maidenhead, the country needs to start being prepared for competitiveness, bench strength and export-led growth within the context of being a composite but much larger Singapore/Swiss style country functioning as a tax haven with zero tolerance policing and a drive to focus on people producing more than they consume.

In parallel with that, we can have discussions on Brexit knowing that if they fail we can rest easy in the knowledge that we have an alternative that yields prosperity.

Labour MPs can provide input but that is not the same as secret talks which are likely to produce a negotiating position which the EU will not accept in any event.

To prevent further backsliding, we need the BBC (a Bilderberger attendee) privatised, the House of Lords abolished and replaced with a 200 person elected Senate and Channel 4 sold. This will raise money and deal with the naysayers and roadblocks to fast economic reform that have held the country back for all these years.

Then we need Boundary Commission redrawing of the Constituency map on the grounds of cost which would see MP numbers reduced to 200 with 449 fired but salaries for those left upped to £100,000 GBP with additional support staff.

Trimming the monarchy and fast re-enablement of Adult Social Care recipients over 6 weeks would save a further £50 billion GBP which can then be recycled into export led growth, improved foreign language websites, nearshoring passporting solutions and improved writing down allowances.

  1. John, thanks for sharing your viewpoint here. Whilst I relate to your argument, I’m not sure that I agree in the detail.

    However, I want to make an important point about Boris Johnson. To be the next leader of the Conservative Party, Johnson must be the most popular with both MPs and ultimately the membership. Johnson’s Brexit stance, favoring a hard Brexit will please the right of the Conservative Party. But I sense that the British public, the electorate, increasingly has no stomach for a hard-Brexit. When I was in the UK and asked Brexit referendum voters their reasons for voting Brexit, they quickly changed the subject.

    In my view, the majority of people would now prefer to reverse the Brexit decision or if necessary would favor a very soft Brexit.

    The point being that for Johnson to win the next election as leader of the Conservative Party, he needs to champion popular policies – and Brexit is far from popular; it’s increasingly toxic. Timing will be critical but Johnson will surely need to drop his support for a hard Brexit?
