        Who speaks for the people of Great Britain. Parliament and Al Beeb or The Prime Minister ?
        Anyone have the latest polls ?

          I have seen the polls. My favorite is the Yougov one that gives Johnson a wooping 14 point lead.

          The comments section on Britain Elects is good for a few laughs. ‘Tory owned Yougov lie’ and ‘Yougov only poll Tory voters and skew their own polls’ and my personal favorite ‘Corbyn does better during elections because the BBC have to give him fair coverage’

          If Corbyn got fair coverage then the BBC would not be able to paint him as a hero as they do every single day

          “UK recession fears ease as GDP returns to growth in July”
          Ah ha ! Despite Brexit ?
          Cumon’ Al Beeb, put some negative spin on that to boost the moral of the Limpdem Remainers.

    Amber Dudd has resigned.
    Apparently the government is spending 80% of its time on no deal planning and only 20% on finding a deal, instead of half and half.

    Errrr, so what was happening in the previous 3 years, Amber ?

    What we do know is either that an alarmingly high percentage of MPs are totally useless. having no experience whatever of commercial negotiations, or that almost all those claiming to be opposed to no-deal are in fact opposed to anything other than Remaining. Or both.

      Two of Britain’s proudest fishing fleets are in her constituency, and all she does is pay lip service to these good souls, while welcoming the French, Spanish, anyone in fact, to come in and plunder the English Channel.

      She’ll definitely be gone at the next GE, unless she is deselected beforehand.

      Hastings and St Leonards have enough problems without her making them worse.

    Look North Sunday evening reported Diana Johnson could be deselected by the Labour Party as MP for North Hull. Why? The BBC didn’t care to inform us. Diana Johnson is a ‘friend’ of Look North for Humberside appearing almost every evening at 6.30. Local news has given a list of how marvellous she is and what a good job she does. Twitter apparently has been full of support for her, so the BBC tells us. Is it Momentum? Haven’t a clue and the BBC won’t tell us.

      In fact the talk of opinion polls is amusing. The Tories are between 3 to 14 points ahead of Labour. That is astonishing considering the bias against him.

    I suspect that the Leave majority would have been higher had it not been for the media bias. And I wonder how many people felt, as I did, that we were just going to get screwed with, in the same way as those other countries that voted to leave: there was a second referendum and the result reversed. I almost didn’t vote because of that, and I wonder how many others might have voted, but didn’t.

    By the way, I don’t remember ever voting to join the European Union. We voted to join what was then called the Common Market, or the European Economic Community. There was not a word about loss of sovereignty, or control over our borders, or our laws being made in Brussels. We were conned.

    • tarien says:

      Agree absolutely Hereward W, if the result of the referendum had gone to a majority for staying inside the EU then there would have been little response from the media of that, we can be certain. However what perhaps people do not realise is that, the EU would then treat the UK like dirt, and continue with their programme of shutting down parliament, as all governance for the UK would come through 9 regions in the UK reporting directly to Brussels. Likely the EUwould bleed us dry of money and fill every corner of this nation with migrants as they in their millions cross the Med from North Africa-which will happen for certain. Yes I well recall us having a referendum in 1975 which was interestingly after that traitor E Heath had exercised the Queen’s perogative to force us into the new European Union-until then like you I considered we were in the Common Market-EEC-My wife and I and no doubt millions of other Brits did not vote for what became the European Union-We voted again in 2016 with a majority to Leave the EU, the resulting treachery since then has been outstandingly disgraceful and an insult to the British People. I personally doubt as 3 W/A’s have been thrown out of government, this government will be offered any extention in fact my contacts in France have indicated strongly that the EU will not allow an extention unless we accept the deal on the table-so all this disgusting bluster from Labour/Liberal et al and the traiterous Tory MP’s will serve nothing. Hopefully every one of the voting public will contact their MP and warn those MP’s to toe the line to accept we are out on October 31st (should have been Mach 29th 2019) and keep quite from then on-many will lose their seats in the next General Election and they deserve no less.

      Actually we didn’t vote to join the EEC either. Heath took us in with, I think, a majority of just seven votes.

      We had a referendum in 1975 to see if we wanted to stay in. We were told about freedom of movement but assured that in practice it was a right little used, (all that changed when the poorer East European nations joined). We were told that our soveignty would be ‘pooled’, but not to worry, we had a veto. Our politicians gave that away in 1987, moving to ‘qualified majority voting’, meaning that ‘Europe’ could out-vote us on anything that they wanted to push.

      Of course our politicans and the BBC were quite happy to keep quiet about all of this, (the BBC always being more concerned about some ‘black’ in a one-horse-town in Kansas being insulted in a drug store that who is PM of the Netherlands).

      You’ll find that we did not vote to join the common market. Instead, we had a referendum to confirm or revoke our membership after Ted Heath unilaterally signed us up to it, despite knowing that it was to become far more than a trading bloc. The BBC always tries to perpetuate this trade-only status in the debate over Brexit. Hence, their total silence over the upcoming Federal EU in a few years time.

    I have my own opinions, and the link is for information

    https://catholicherald.co.uk/magazine/why-mps-are-rushing-to-impose-abortion-on-northern-ireland/

    “Mr Johnson showed himself to be more astute by asserting that it was a matter for the people of Northern Ireland to decide”

    “The amended Bill was fast-tracked with astonishing haste through its Commons stages, in a process described as “constitutionally unacceptable” by the House of Lords Select Committee on the Constitution. An outcry was inevitable, not only because abortion is such a controversial matter but also because every MP for a Northern Irish constituency opposes its introduction.”

    (I don’t know if that last part is correct or not)

    This shows how dangerous a Labour government might be with regard to other things people haven’t even thought about yet.

    The BBC was as ‘impartial’ as it ever is –

    The number of man hours that the subject and implementation of Brexit is taking up is using so much of Parliament’s time and energy. Other important issues are being neglected and the BBC is endorcing this by predominently only covering Brexit issues.

      Another way of looking at the time and effort the rats in the HoP have spent on Brexit these past three years is how much we can do without them.

      The country has continued to function as normal for so long despite Brexit, maybe there’s enough evidence to show that there are too many MPs spending too much time doing unproductive things for our country and costing us too much.

      Perhaps we need significantly fewer MPs and they only need to be part timers, on zero hours contracts, who are employed only when there’s proper work to be done.

    Has anybody else noticed how the weather here recently has been almost unbelievably AVERAGE. Sunshine, cloud, periods of rain – incredible. Yes, I know there’s been Hurricane Dorian across the Atlantic, but here’s my prediction. Bouts of extreme weather will continue in various places at occasional times in the future. Drought, flooding and the odd plague of locusts will occur, followed by showers of dripping wet Progressives telling the rest of us there’s only X years left to Take Action Now and bow the knee to Gaia.

    And now the forecast for the next twenty-four hours. Fairisle, Rockall. Winds light to moderate. Good.

    Marvellous moment just before 7am on Toady when the new antisemitism ‘tzar’ John Mann (Labour) was interviewed.
    Inevitably Justin brought up Brexit saying that the Labour Party seems to be pro-remain now.

    John agreed and said how unfortunate it was that Labour voters in the Midlands/North were being deserted as 80-90% of them voted leave. (Justin had implied the opposite based on Islington and Tower Hamlets, probably)
    They were wondering, when canvassed by Labour on their doorsteps, what the Labour party was for ?
    People in the country at large are getting very angry…….

      Talking of not going well . A bbc dynasty member John Snow – ( remainer ) presents an account of the ‘ peoples Party ‘ ( or whatever it was called ) – you know the one with Soubry in it .

      Any way it’s called ‘ splitters ‘ . My immediate thought was the ‘pl’ should have been replaced with a ‘h’ – do the math – as they say ….

      I wonder if after the 29 minutes of the programme it turns out that they had zero public support . ( source yougov )

    Two noticeables:
    – The BBC actually now call them food scares – a slight attempt at honesty?
    – In return for free advertising, the boss of Iceland Foods (Richard Walker?) – a Leave voter (highlighted by Dom) – had to say something negative about a No Deal Brexit. It wasn’t on the Ballot Paper.

    Strictly Come Dancing is starting again on BBC1.
    Each week there is a public vote and one of two dancing couples are eliminated.
    Will the BBC be offering a second vote if the public chooses the ‘wrong’ couples for elimination?
    Or perhaps as many votes as it takes until the public chooses the ‘correct’ couples?
    I’m sure the BBC would not wish to undermine a democratic vote by the public but I thought I’d ask, just to be sure.

The thing that gets me is you never get to hear the voting numbers or how much the BBC take in money for the phone calls people make. Where does the money go? Is it to a charity or in the BBC coffers, nothing gets published or discussed. I heard from them that as from next year they are going to let men and women dance with the same sex, God help us, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers will be turning in their graves.

      Sluff, wait til next year when same sex couples will be mincing around the floor, – and whether there’ll be a slump in viewing figures because the Beeb want to be ‘correct’ !

      I do find it hard to visualise actually, – women have always danced together if there aren’t enough blokes to go around, and do so without any sexual connotations, but chaps have their own clubs when wanting to dance together. Will I find it uncomfortable viewing? seeing a chap taking the woman’s role in dancing on mainstream tv ? and if it does, does it make me a bigot ? I’m not sure, on the one hand I want to be open minded with a live and let live attitude, but on the other hand I may think “this just doesn’t ‘look’ right”. We shall see, but I’m certainly not happy that the BBC are making me feel like this.

        I stand to be corrected but wonder whether women dancing together was originally a wartime thing – the menfolk were fighting for their country away from home so it was simple maths- there were not enough men to go round, so women danced with each other.
        In the same way that there were a large number of spinsters after the wars. No doubt much to the annoyance of the modern day BBC and their chums at Stonewall, the spinsters were not closet Lesbians, they just couldn’t find a man- many men were of course filling up the war graves………

          Sluff, you could well be right. The 50’s was rock’n’roll which was a boy/girl dance. Then the 60’s came along and was the era for the girls to dance in a group around their handbags, while the blokes watched on the sidelines till a slow dance was in the offing.

          Even now, for ladies who like to ballroom dance, most dance clubs have a surfeit of ladies who have no option but to dance together, as very few chaps pitch up on their own to either learn or dance for pleasure. Funny that, a bloke wont hesitate to walk into a pub for a pint on his own, but go to a dance solo ? hardly.

    Only on the BBC! – Wimmins hour talking about how Brexit is affecting women..apparently the Brexit debate is male pale and stale
    Now have Dutch woman who has been in the UK for 50 years and still hasn’t become a citizen….and blames Brexit for her fears and lost friends – why hasn’t she became a citizen in 50 years?

    What I say to all those women blaming Brexit for their anxiety etc is look for the real reason
    And a remainer..all worried about their Grandchildrens’ future –

      The reason that the Brexit debate is male pale and stale is because Brexit MEP’s Claire Fox, Lucy Harris, Christina Jordan, Belinda Lucy, June Mummery, Alexandra Phillips, Annunziata Rees-Mogg and
      Ann Widdecombe are effectively bared from the whole BBC, not just Women’s Hour. All you get on the BBC are male Remainers Tony Blair, John Major, Ken Clarke, Philip Hammond, Rory Stewart, Dominic Grieve, Oliver Letwin and Nicholas Soames.

      I think its about time that a woman like Ann Widdecombe replaced Lord Hall to sort out all this institutional sexism and political bias within the BBC.

      Dear Cassandra,

      1) Under the UN Refugee Convention, supported by UK law, refugees can claim asylum in the country of their choice; regardless of any ‘safe’ country they may have passed through beforehand.

      2) 900 Syrians arrested in one year amounts to 0.1% of all arrests in the UK.

      3) Furthermore, the original “Sun on Sunday” report states that; “the majority of offences that Syrians were arrested for were immigration violations

      So much for “Fake News”.

    Let us for a moment consider the Remainer position.
    Firstly they must find a way of delegitimising the referendum result. This can be done in several ways, it was only advisory, the Leave campaign lied their socks off, the Leave voters didn’t understand the issues, the referendum paper didn’t specify how we were to leave, only a minority of those eligible to vote voted Leave . All these can be easily rebutted but it doesn’t matter to Remainers because it is as much about them pretending to themselves that they aren’t taking an anti democratic position as it is about presenting a logical justification for refusing to accept the result to others.
    Secondly, they believe or pretend to believe that disentangling the UK from the EU is so complex as to be almost impossible . They obviously refute the clear fact that the UK negotiating team has been in cahoots with the EU since the very start and has deliberately sabotaged its own position.
    Thirdly , they claim that the Remainer MPs are defending democracy by a) ignoring the ‘delegitimised’ referendum ( see above) b) ignoring the manifestos upon which they were elected, c) several defecting without submitting themselves for re election at by elections by their constituents and then voting against their own government, d) refusing to hold a GE to give the people their say.

    This really does seem to be a house of cards which is only prevented from complete collapse by the power of the establishment . I really don’t think it can long survive . I believe that no matter how much the BBC and rest of the MSM try to spin it the British people can see how shabbily and contemptuously the Remainer establishment are treating them. Sooner or later the people will have their say and a pro Brexit government will be installed and there will be the political space and opportunity for a radical culling of the establishment , if the new government wishes to do so , eg the BBC could be abolished with the consent of the people, civil service cleansed. The question is will this pro Brexit government have the desire and will to go further than Brexit, will it remove the liberal establishment ? How radical is it willing to be ? I suspect that Boris might deliver a reasonable Brexit but that he is too establishment to go further and the opportunity will be lost.

      Ok double

      Let’s pour cold water on your post

      1 most of the electorate only view the headlines ( fact not criticism )
      2 the collective memory is short ( see comrade Corbyn )
      3 remain think time erodes brexit will to fight
      4 the future economy will flavour views ( recession ? Cycle ? )
      5 future turn out for votes may be lower for leavers than remainers -as the broad brush is applied to all .

      Now I don’t believe in all of these 5 factors – notice I’ve left the role of the MSM out because despite wall to wall fear and bias they were ineffective in the Referendum and have been ever since – and more optimistically – as more people realise their influence will diminish even more ….

      Bottom line – didn’t we vote to leave over 3 years ago ? And we haven’t left yet ? Must be something wrong ….

      As for a future Conservative Government with a working majority – just so much to do and revenge .
      The idea of a serving PM being locked up by its own parliament – yet alone important stuff like our relation with the Americans and Europeans enemy states ( not people ) is up there on the list .

        I think it highly unlikely that a ‘caretaker’ government , if there is one, can last more than a few months. I don’t think the British people will forget about how they have been treated by the establishment in a few years let alone months.
        The biggest threat is that the caretakers organise a rapid or snap referendum , gerrymander it in some way and get a Remain majority , perhaps just manipulate the question or spend vast amounts of gov money or use the electoral commission to knee capthe Leave campaign. Anything is possible. There is more chance of them succeeding with a referendum , with a simple majority winner, than in a GE with FPTP because the Remain vote is heavily concentrated and will win some seats by a landslide , eg uni towns , but will lose across the total of 650 constituencies.

      No it’s moved on from being purely leftist propaganda organ. It now embraces global capitalism , or at least tolerates it. Both the international left and the global capitalists have a lot in common. Critically a strong Desire to replace the nation state with a borderless single world run by technocrats and supra national organisation like the EU or UN. And then to average out the standard of living and , in the leftist mind set to create a Utopia , in the Globalist mindset to create billions of new customers to make money out of. Democracy in this new world order is relegated to town council level and has no power whatsoever. The role of the BBC et al will be to educate people so they think the right way and to provide them with carefully tailored news. Not much different from to today , but they will probably also be able to ‘listen in’ to what is being said in the home in true Orwellian style and report malcontents and subversives. Amazon Alexa is probably a prototype.

    Absolute lies by omission, complete fabrication by the BBC.

    The BBC is deliberately misleading us here.

    The BBC has been telling me all morning that Leo Varadkar says he wants an extension past 31st October. That seems to be at total variance to what he says in this video from today showing me that the BBC misses out the rather crucial point that he’d in fact prefer this all over by the 31st…as would the rest of the EU…now why doesn’t the BBC want to highlight that?

    ‘“If it comes to a request for an extension, I think the vast majority of countries around the table would prefer that there not be an extension. We would like to see this dealt with. If the UK is leaving it should leave on 31st October.”’

    Varadkar says he’d only consider an extension but would prefer Britain to leave on the 31st. Yet again the British Parliament is shown to be out of touch with reality, not just with the British Public but with the EU as well….but the BBC is busy covering that up.

    Here’s the BBC web site report….maybe I’ve missed it but I can’t see anywhere where the BBC reports his words above….surely the most signiifcant thing Varadkar has to say today….

    Johnson tells Varadkar no-deal Brexit ‘would be a failure’

    This is all we get on Varadkar…note the ‘stony-faced’ image…intended to tell us how disagreeable Varadkar finds it all…

    ‘A stony-faced Leo Varadkar said a deal is still possible, but warned that promises from the UK wouldn’t cut it.’

The Irish would do well to get rid of this Brussels placeman as soon as possible . He has done the EUs bidding at the expense of his own electorate. Any sensible Irish government would have been lobbying for a full trade deal , without conditions, from the day after the referendum. Indeed if the history between the Republic and the UK Ihad been less fraught the Irish would have been best served economically by exiting the EU along with the UK.
