The Moaning Remainers on the Warpath - Update 4 - Post Brexit


Lets Get Real:

The moaning remainers are on the warpath, they are not happy that the Government has given concessions to the hard Brexit supporters.  The Government is in a real mess over Brexit.  PM May made a choice, but that choice has come under critical review from the hard Brexit supporters and the moaning remainers.   It can be argued that there should be another General Election, make the UK voter make up their minds, a soft Brexit or a hard Brexit. 

Is the PM's EU plan as DEAD as a DODO - Update 3 - Post Brexit


Lets Get Real:

Politics is a brutal business, one day your the PM, leader of the Nation, then you are out of power and needing something to do, you open a garden festival, just to be seen to be busy as before.  The above remainder is from the last days of Lady Thatcher as PM.   The May Era might be coming to the end, the former Foreign Secretary and Brexit Secretary have been quite so far, will they put the political knife in to the back of the PM, the next few hours and days should be interesting, keep your eyes on the House of Commons.  The PM's plan looks like it is DEAD, who will do the decent thing and rid the House of Commons of the idea. 

Brexit Latest - Update 2 - Post Brexit


Lets Get Real:

The UK Government is spinning the above, it faced losing the vote on the Customs Bill, and Labour would not have helped, this seem more interested in defeating the Government that getting Brexit.  The PM has made a mistake with her EU deal, its sole purpose seems to annoy both the hard Brexit supporters and the moaning remainers, neither like the plan, so it is either good or really bad and complicated. No 10 should have another meeting at the PM's retreat and come up with a plan that the Government can sell to the public.

UK Government to Accept 4 Rebel Amendments - Update - Post Brexit


Lets Get Real:

The Government had to fold, it was concerned that it would lose the vote later on.  It has not been a good weekend for UK and PM May, at the start POTUS was telling NATO members they had to spend more on defence, then POTUS stated that he had told PM May how to deal with Brexit, that got the press going over the weekend.   Then at the press conference with POTUS and the PM the President stated his views as represented by the press was fake news, even as he was recorded on tape.   The PM has faced daily resignations from the Government at a lower level than the Cabinet over Brexit.  One has doubts that PM May can get to March 2019, she could be overthrown by her own backbenches before the end of the year.

Hard Brexit supporters on the Warpath - Update - Post Brexit


Lets Get Real:

It will be an interesting time in the House of Commons, will the Hard Brexit supporters be able to sink the PM's plan for Brexit, and will the PM need the support of Labour MPs to get it through.   The hard Brexit MPs are going to use their votes to make sure that they get some form of HARD BREXIT, even if not the 100% version they want.   Labour votes and other opposition Parties could either help the Government or sink it, interesting weeks ahead.   It must be a nightmare being PM May, she is getting push back from all sides. 

Trump on the UK - Update 3 - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

The PM can counter the Trump attack, the UK spends 2% of its GDP on defence, and also sending troops to Afghanistan.   The US needs to aim its critical review at Germany and other states who fail to spend on defence.   The UK and the US should make clear to the rest of NATO that the days when they can spend on welfare and cut defence are over, otherwise the US will cut its spending and force Europe to spend.  The Germans need to get the FACT that they can not spend on welfare at the cost of the US taxpayer.   The good old days are OVER.

Trump and Germany - Update 2 - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

The Europeans have to GET REAL, the US wallet will get tighter, the good old days of the US spending to protect Europe might be over, the US is trillions in DEBT, one day a US President might pull the plug on NATO and then the Europe will be in BIG trouble.   In the decades after World War 2 the Europeans have spent more on welfare than defence, they day will come when Russia pushes, the US won't be there, will Europeans defend Europe or Appease.  The Germans have a rich country, they can afford to open their wallet, the above statements from Trump is a WARNING, the future always changes, Europe has to wake up from its sleep.
