Yet another indicator that the UK is on the slide and it’s all pretty much because of Brexit but will Teresa May and Jeremy Corbyn take any notice at all?

And my big question to the disciples of JC is this – How will JC be able to implement his spending pledges when there’s no money in the pot because of much lower tax receipts?

As Roy Connell says ‘Hope JC has taken note , no taxes coming in, equals no spending !!!!!’

Brexit – Why hide the results of investigations into the consequences of it?

This Brexit lark gets odder by the day; why on earth can’t we all see what these investigations into the consequences of Brexit say? Probably because they say things that the establishment (read Tory/Bluekip and Labour/Redkip Party leaderships) do not want us to see!

We all know that in a democracy if you are denied sight of something it is in your interests to see it.

Corbyn ‘If the government can’t negotiate a Brexit deal, they should make way for one that can’

Well here we are with JC in full Brexit cry saying what the Tories can’t negotiate Labour can! It would be funny if it were not so wrong headed.

JC’s Labour have been in Teresa May’s back pocket with regard to Brexit for far too long – they’re like two peas in a pod. Yes, sensible Labour voices like Sadiq Khan keep challenging the Labour Leadership’s barmy stance on Brexit but JC and his shadow cabinet keep on running for the cliff edge with the Tories.

What on earth can JC do to negotiate a good Brexit? There is no good Brexit just differing shades of a bad one. He needs vast taxation revenues to be able to fund his massive spending plans yet Brexit will without doubt lead to huge costs for the Treasury meaning he won’t have the funds to spend without more dangerous borrowing. Indeed, his leadership is already planning for a run on the £ if he gets a majority – planning for a run on the £!!! And how’s that going to provide money for his spending pledges?

Teresa is making a terrible muck of things but JC could not possibly be any better in fact he could well be worse, if such were possible.

Brexit is like fools gold, it looks like what some folk would want it to be but in reality it is worthless.

The state they are in – The Tories over Brexit

The Guardian has the opinion piece on its web site – see link above

There can be little doubt that the Tories are indeed in one hell of a mess, although her Majesty’s official opposition are in effect sharing the same political hole that they have jointly dug and keep on deepening.

Brexit will be the ruin of us all, be in no doubt.

May – Is anyone listening?

The Daily Mirror has the story on its web site – see link above.

As the UK seeks to isolate itself within Europe whilst at the same time hawking its suitcase of trading products door to door around the planet you can’t help but think that humouring and ignoring us has become the way of the world.

What a sad state we are in!

Brexit – Let’s face it the wheels keep coming off this ridiculous car

The Evening Standard has the story on its web site – see link above

Leaving the EU has always been about the internal troubles of the Tory Party and what’s going on today is all part of that same internal Tory power struggle.

This latest twist must surely sober up the more sensible Brexiters as they head lemming-like nearer towards the cliff edge, yet will it? May talks of having a great relationship with the EU when we leave but that’s like getting divorced and then continuing as before without being married – what’s the point?

The UK is lurching around making a bloody fool of itself with no idea what to do next in this mad Brexit farce. The lack of a credible official opposition with a clear head on this most vital of issues just makes it all the more dangerous for the UK.

There’s nothing to be optimistic about no matter how you voted it that fateful referendum.
