How do you get a deal now Boris?
Lie on your back (like a limbo dancer) crawl under a bar marked ‘no to no deal’, but do it feet or knees first thus presenting your balls to Brussels! Oh yeah! You may need to do this over a protracted three month period to let EU negotiators determine that you no longer hold any aces up your sleeve:? In Corbyn speak; “our nuclear submarine deterrent always sails without missiles for safety”.
Well in retrospect, paroging parliament may not have been such a good call, but when Mr Bercow dug up a 400 year old law to Parogue a 4th vote on ‘the only deal’ on the table, no one in the house said a word!
But seeing and hearing all the bile launched at Mr Johnson yesterday made me think that he had possibly misjudged the situation. Having been to 12 different schools in my youth, one thing l did learn is that if you rise to the top of the class at the end of term, then everyone goes on holiday for a few weeks, then sure as eggs are eggs as soon as the new term begins there will be a group trying to knock you off your perch for being a clever dick!
Now we are also reading remainer dug up stories of how newspaper owners were originally behind Brexit to avoid having Brussels pry into their tax avoidance through British ‘tax havens’. But the elephant in the room could just as well be a certain Mr Soros and colleagues who made a mint out of the ‘Black Wednesday’ fiasco, and who may do the same over Brexit. This is hardly relevant though as speculators (read vultures) will always hedge their bets and make money whichever way the markets turn!
Of course, all the above may be down to simple jealousy!
Boris is actually popular with much of the populace, has blonde hair, the top job, a family, but he lives with his lover, and a cat and a dog! What’s not to like?
But my overriding sentiment yesterday was a feeling of shame and embarrassment at the carry on in parliament like a load of baying school children. Whether you are for the current PM or against him the whole thing Is a shambles. We can’t really stay in and we can’t leave, but we don’t appear to have the statesmen (or women) with the calibre to do anything positive.
Roll on a general election.
