I dusted off the Guillotine
and it still works
Yes Mr Barnier, he is a
At least we can agree on something
Don't mention the war
(sorry I mean't) Brexit
Have you noticed that people that voted to remain in the EU have lots of children, I suspect it's because they believe that pulling out won't work, that switches my attention to Boris and whether he really wanted us to leave, after totting-up the number of his offspring he doesn't like the idea either. Brexit has divided the country like no other subject, the protracted transition talks are taking forever, we should have got the English Football Team to handle them, they normally leave Europe pretty sharpish. However we're where we are and the sooner we've made the break the better. One thing the remaining EU members should be pleased about, their computer will have 1GB more space available.
It's unfortunate that Covid 19 reared it's head as we were about to commence talks with the EU on trade and other matters, there was always going to be a period of uncertainty once we left the EU and the pandemic will add to the rough ride but it will not prevent us from becoming a highly successful nation free from the restraints that go with being a member of an organisation who's dream is to make us all one big happy family. It's desire for uniformity is bad enough but to have Merkel & Macron calling the shots is completely out of the question. Twice in the past Germany has tried to rule Europe and they're trying again but this time more subtly. Please don't get the impression that I'm anti Germany because I'm not, even after they bombed our local Fish shop. The Common Market was a fantastic idea and it should have remained just that, a diverse bunch of countries trading goods with each other, but a United States of Europe, no thank you. Once the UK has shown the way it won't be long before other EU member states reject the European Super State concept, and that's what's terrifying the EU. They are going to make it as hard as they can for the UK, to try and prove to others that you cannot prosper outside the club, but their dilemma is, they know they need a good relationship with us.
Have I got news for them, we are going to be a hugely successful country with or without a UK-EU trade deal. There's a big wide world out there just waiting to re-connect with the United Kingdom.
The EU is made up of lots of old and extremely proud nations with hundreds of years of history, these countries don't want to lose their identities, they're not going to be diluted and lost in a Merkel-Macron controlled melting pot. They are nervous about jumping ship until they see how we do outside the block, when they realise that there's life after Merkeldom it'll be like Pentonville Prison if a warder accidentally left the gate open.
The EU leaders should take their heads out of their backsides and realise 'one size doesn't fit all" and who in their right mind wants to be part of an organisation that try's to punish a member if they contemplate leaving?
We'll soon be free to make our own way in the world, trade with whom we choose, make our own laws that best suit the British people, control our borders only allowing skilled people into the country and block pickpockets & scroungers. We have to look after our own first, our homeless, our poor, our sick and our elderly some of whom cannot afford to turn their heating on in depths of winter.
I make no apology for saying that asylum seekers and illegal immigrants are not top of my to help list. When all British people are warm, well fed, comfortable and healthy only then can we look further afield and help others
In the meantime we should not let ourselves be pushed around By Michel Barnier & Co, we are no longer a part of Europe, we are an independent country. The EU have to understand we will happily work with them but not for them. Their fishing quota demands are a typical example of their arrogance. The government has said they can have access to our waters to fish, but on our terms not theirs, we have said we will let them fish in our waters but review quota's annually or biannually, they won't accept this, they want full unfettered access on a permanent basis. We voted to leave the EU to stop these control freaks telling us how to live our lives, who do they think they are.
But there is one downside to leaving the EU, my Christmas dinner won't be the same without Brussels
Have faith in the UK and the British people's ability, in a few years time we'll be the envy of the world. If the SNP leader doesn't want to come on that journey and takes Scotland out of the Union, sobeit. They'll have about as much chance of success outside the Union as their leader has of winning Miss World. Once North Sea Oil has gone, and that day is just around the corner, they'll have nothing.
Scotland its a beautiful place, fantastic scenery and loverly people, it would be a crime if it were to split from the UK.
At last its done!
On the 1st January 2021 we escaped from the grip of the EU, yes we are still tired to a few regulations but they are pretty insignificant and much like rules that would apply in any trade arrangement. The deal agreed covers the important issues, we can make our own laws, our courts have teeth, we have control of our borders and we will be getting more control over our fishing waters. We have a fair tariff & quota free trade agreement with the EU, if they are not happy and try to slap tariffs on our goods we'll slap them on theirs, but that remains to be seen. The BIG plus for us is, we can trade with the rest of the world something we could not do while we were a member of the EU, its a win - win situation almost having your cake and eating it. Once the penny dropped and the EU realised that Boris was not prepared to give ground on the UK's sovereignty and that WTO rules were looming there was a subtle change in the EU's tone, in private they had to reluctantly admit they had so much to loose without a trade deal with the UK, at this point they compromised on a number of issues and a deal was done.
We no longer have one hand tied behind our back, we will prosper, we are once again Great Britain
No other person could have done what the Prime Minister did, May and Cameron would have surrendered. It's now up to the people of this country, we'll defeat Covid 19 and then turn this country into the powerhouse it is. Although remainers will never admit it, we have just seen democracy in action, the UK got what it voted for, Brexit. Unless the EU rethink their plans for a United States of Europe they will struggle as other EU members think about jumping ship. Its not if, its when this is going to happen
This Macron Merkel nose rubbing ain't natural, it seems a bit fishy to me. No way was I going to do that with either of them, that's the real reason I wanted out of Europe.
How's it for you Angela?
