A week is a long time in politics. In Brexit politics, it’s a hell of a long time. As the latest deadline approaches, the Parliament has vowed to tie Boris’s hands behind his back for the coming boxing match with the EU.

MPs have passed a law demanding that BoJo ask for an extension to stay in the EU even longer. Talk about Hotel California? People with nothing to lose can be extremely dangerous however, and this underhanded plotting to keep Britain from leaving could backfire spectacularly.

Nigel Farage is now making serious overtures towards Boris with regards to cooperating in the event of an election. That would definitely put the cat amongst the pigeons.

Farage headed UKIP for years and can be credited more than anyone else with securing the vote to leave the EU.

He recently formed a new political party called The Brexit Party which secured a massive majority in the latest EU elections.

The Brexit party is offering to campaign heavily in Northern Labour strongholds whilst leaving southern, blue-ribbon seats, for the Tories (Conservatives).

This would be a devastating combination, particularly as the remain vote is split between the Liberal Democrats and Labour.

It would also mean most likely, that treacherous remain voting Tories like Hammond and Berkow would be kicked out of the party and have no chance of re-election (Ha!).

The problem right now is that the Government needs a two thirds majority to call an election and with Labour refusing to cooperate, they are stuck – or are they?

One trick they could pull, is to put up a No-confidence motion in Boris which would only require a simple majority to pass.

This would seem like a bizarre move, voting for no confidence in their own leader. It would break the impasse however, as Labour would have to abstain.  

We could pretty much guarantee that they would not be able to bring themselves to vote against such a motion.

That would clear the way for an election before the deadline to leave the EU. If Boris won that election, he could pull the plug pretty much immediately.

Britain would then be free to make trade deals with any country in the world – including the European Union.

Donald Trump has offered to fast track a deal with Britain, helping to make it great again too. The American economy is literally going gangbusters under Trump and such a deal would be a godsend.

If Europe persisted in blocking British trade it would have devastating consequences for the remaining EU countries.

Britain is one of the largest economies in Europe and buys lots of their goods. It also contributes a significant proportion of their budget.

Losing both of these forms of income at once would be a crushing blow for Europe and they might just be smart enough to come back to the UK asking for a deal from them.

Somehow, I think in that scenario, the negotiations would be somewhat more favourable to the British.

The Poms been in strife many times in their long history, yet the winds of chance have saved them by the skin of their teeth. Let’s hope their luck holds out this time.

Brexit: A Political Farce Based on a Public Lie The result of Brexit – supposedly a simple vote on whether the UK should leave the EU – has become the farce it is today for one simple reason: the call for the referendum and the vote itself had, essentially, nothing to do with the UK’s membership of the EU. Instead, the referendum was called by British politicians as a direct result of British political manoeuvreing, with the incumbent (then and now) Conservative party attempting to consolidate its grip on power in the face of an increasingly popular ‘far right’ UK… Read more »

The treacherous/ criminal “cartel” and the government entities (Federal and State) who deliberately set the LNG prices on the east coast of Australia should be named and shamed and be held to account. Perhaps a royal commission.??? This is in direct contrast to Western Australians who were smart enough to have a “gas reservation policy.” in place. They (the treacherous cartel and government entities, Federal and State should be made to explain how the price of LNG in WA is “ONE THIRD” the price of gas in the Eastern States. and “cheaper”(shock horror) than the prices the Asian countries pay… Read more »

The Brexit Party would have done far better had not the Corrupt Electoral Commission in the UK had not pulled a smart arse move,at the last Election. When the party was registered it was as ” THE Brexit Party “…….. The Crims at the Electoral Commission used the “THE” as the first word……….. So on Voting List they were put way down the bottom in the “T’s”……….. Millions couldn’t find them on Election Day……… Plus the Crooked Vote Counting by the other Parties…….sounds like the ALP/Greens in Australia. I only hope that Boris can think straight (instead of Bonking the… Read more »

Something to confuse the climate change activists:
Fires causing problems around the Armidale, NSW area. However, there were scatterings of snow and sleet as well, last night.
They are all running around scratching their heads and ‘pulling’ doors marked ‘push’.

The out of control bushfires highlights the ineptitude of the Environment Protection Authority. They impose onerous measures on landholders wishing to clear scrub or build dams and seem fixated on saving furry critters . Their methods have destroyed more furry critters than any feral cats could manage in a decade.

MORRISON DOES NOT UNDERSTAND FREEDOM .. BLUNDERS …

The Australian Government have announced the introduction of a new Bill aimed at imposing criminal liability on executives of social media platforms if they fail to remove “abhorrent violent content.” The hastily drafted legislation could have serious unintended consequences for human rights in Australia.

Morrison is like a little boy playing with matches.

SAVE CALIFORNIA, BAN ENVIRONMENTALISTS Hold the straws, legalize the rats. While California is drowning in filth and disease, its Democrat elites are focused on the environment. They caused a drought for the environment. They let fires happen for the environment. Now they’re going to cause a rat infestation and typhus epidemic for the environment. It’s the environmentalist way. And, if you’re an environmentalist, people dying of preventable diseases is good for the environment, California’s statewide bans include the usual effort to ban circuses, fur, sodas, makeup and bots. Locally, the San Francisco airport, which offers dedicated yoga rooms, banned bottled… Read more »

Amazing Polly shows how the Maxwell sisters backdoored the FBI, CIA, NSA with technology they control and how they had a huge impact on culture. Their father was a master spy – and the apples didn’t fall far from the tree. Jeffrey Epstein is almost a distraction from what may be the bigger story around the Maxwell sisters and government software patents. Amazing Polly shows the connections between Big Tech and the CIA’s investment firm, In-Q-Tel. She goes into the story of Aaron Swartz’ suicide, MIT Media Labs, the Santa Fe Institute, Edge.org, and a mind-blowng update on the NASA… Read more »

UK: Police raids find huge arms cache of jihad terror group, including sniper rifles

Sniper rifles? But doesn’t the UK have strict gun control laws? We are constantly told in the US that such laws end gun violence. What happened here?

Also it’s odd that the West Midlands Police could spare the resources from their relentless pursuit of foes of jihad terror to pull off these raids. But aren’t these raids “Islamophobic”?

How dare the BBC teach children that there are ‘100 genders’?

“What are the different gender identities?” asks a little boy in one of the nine new BBC Teach films put out to support the personal, social and health education (PSHE) curriculum in schools – to which his head teacher replies: “That’s a really, really exciting question…”

Actually, it’s not. And the answer is still less exciting.

Which is perhaps why rather than give the boy a bald, biological and distinctly boring fact – “two” – the video cuts to a Relationships and Sex Education teacher, hopped-up on her own gaping-mindedness:

The Board of Gafcon Australia expresses its dismay over the decision of Synod of the Diocese of Wangaratta to make provision for the blessing of same-sex marriages. We believe this has torn the fabric of our communion within the Anglican Church of Australia. This decision is contrary to the teaching of Scripture about the nature of human sexuality and marriage. It is also contrary to the doctrinal position of the Anglican Church of Australia. General Synod has repeatedly affirmed that marriage is a lifelong exclusive union between a man and a woman. The Bible does not allow the blessing of… Read more »

What’s the Italian word for ‘hubris’? Somebody should ask League leader Matteo Salvini.

Less than a month ago, Salvini was out partying at Papeete Beach. At one point, he stepped up to the decks during a music festival, where the man who was until very recently the most powerful politician in Italy was surrounded by dancing bikini-clad women.

This was Salvini at the height of his power. But little did he realize that, while he was partying, his rivals were busy plotting his downfall, and within weeks, his hopes of taking over as prime minister would be crushed.

Donald Trump’s disordered personality—his unhealthy patterns of thinking, functioning, and behaving—has become the defining characteristic of his presidency. It manifests itself in multiple ways: his extreme narcissism; his addiction to lying about things large and small, including his finances and bullying and silencing those who could expose them; his detachment from reality, including denying things he said even when there is video evidence to the contrary; his affinity for conspiracy theories; his demand for total loyalty from others while showing none to others; and his self-aggrandizement and petty cheating. It manifests itself in Trump’s impulsiveness and vindictiveness; his craving for… Read more »

🤜🏻🕋🤛🏻 So as to give this commentary a little greater prominence (and correct a few spelling errors), I’ve reposted this comment in reply to IE, lower down, regarding how a Moslem ‘film festival’ in Melbournistan will attempt to highlight the problem of ‘Islamophobia’ in Australia. Whenever thwarted, or delayed beyond endurance, in their religiously sanctioned imperative to rape, pillage, prosyletyze, murder, conquer, subjugate and/or forcibly convert, Mozzies always play the victim card — just as did the Profit Muhammad himself. I’ll also paste the text of a linked article in replies, for those with an aversion to clicking on links:… Read more »

Going back to the year 2001, Australia’s foreign debt was $326.12 billion (Australian Bureau of Statistics, Balance of Payments; Cat. No. 5302.0; Table 35). It is even more now.

The Treasury Department advised that Australian taxpayers pay $20 billion interest on this debt every 12 months. Imagine the schools, hospitals, police, soldiers and equipment $20 billion would buy every 12 months!

If we could return to the days of the original Commonwealth Bank under Dennison Miller Australia would not have a national debt. But we were sold out to the privately owned Jewish Banks by treasonous politicians

Below Lefty asked why do people smoke? Believe it or not, Lefty, smoking is pleasurable and that’s why people smoke.

I’m not a smoker but am sick and tired of governments targeting them as cash cows.

Why do governments provide free needles to addicts of illegal drugs but punish tobacco addicts with horrendous taxes and restrictions on their indulgence of a legal substance?

If they REALLY wanted to stop people smoking they’d ban tobacco and fund withdrawal clinics, wouldn’t they. But they don’t because smokers are a cash cow.

Norway’s electric car miracle is a smug national fraud built on subsidizing rich people with Teslas
Published time: 8 Sep, 2019 09:40 Edited time: 9 Sep, 2019 10:12

The government in Oslo spending billions of oil export dollars to help the affluent buy an electric second car they wouldn’t otherwise want is European environmentalism at its phoniest and most hare-brained.
