The UK and the Customs Union - Brexit Update 2 - Post Brexit


Lets Get Real:

This blog is thinking long term, the motion should be accepted by the Conservative Government, also the May Government should push to remain in the Single Market, Lady Thatcher was rather proud of this EU law.   Also it stops any future Corbyn Government from taking over large areas of the UK economy.   The Conservative MPs have to think long term, it can be argued that Labour has a good chance at the next General Election.   The Conservatives have to take a strategic view, lock down any future Corbyn Government. 

The LEGAL problems of POTUS - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

It can be argued that POTUS needs a new personal lawyer, one that does not get his office or home raided, also someone who can give him good legal advice while they are not under threat from the special prosecutor.   The President should consider firing the Special Prosecutor, of course the Democrats will scream to impeach the President, but they do not control Congress in till January 2019, this is the time to do it, also the President should get his base out to support such a move.   The legal probes have gone on for years now, time to finish them and take the heat while the Congress is under Republican control. 

US and North Korea - Talks Update - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

The fact the next US Secretary of State when to meet Kim Jong - un is a good start, but one has to recall that the North Koreans have broken their word before when it comes to their nuclear ambitions.   The Trump Oval has to be careful that they are not being played by the North Koreans, if the North starts to go about the US leaving South Korea and not keep its security accord with South Korea and Japan, then President Trump must leave.  Talking is good, but not for talks sake.   The Trump Oval needs to be very wary of the North Koreans. 

Is a Customs Union and Single Market GOOD for the UK ?- Post Brexit


Lets Get Real:

It can be argued that a customs Union and a single market is a good idea for when the UK leaves the EU.   The UK keeping the single market would mean that should the Labour Party win a general election they will be restricted in what they can do, they would not be able to take over large areas of the business sector.   If the UK keeps the Customs Union and single market then the Irish problem goes away, we will have left the EU, that is the main point of this post.   Also it can be argued that such a move would bring together most of the Country,  of course there are extremes, between those that want to cut all links with the EU and those that want a FEDERAL Europe.  The middle path in this case is the best policy.

The Criminal Porbes of POTUS - Trump Era


Lets Get Real:

One can understand why serving and former FBI agents are not happy with their former Director,  politics in D.C is based on trust, if the White House can not trust the FBI it is a problem when it comes to day to day business.   This blog to be honest has placed an order for the Comey book, it looks interesting and should not be dull.  Former Director Comey is not liked by the left or right, on the left it is due to his actions days before the Presidential Election in the US when he re-opened the Clinton email investigation and on the right, because of his attacks on President Trump.

The Unhinged Left and Syria - Syria Update 3 - Syrian Crisis


Lets Get Real:

Ever since Iraq the UK left has jumped off the cliff, it now defends Assad of Syria, and sees the Allied powers of the UK, US and France as warmongers, they do not live in the real world, they want to give Russia a VETO over UK foreign policy.  One wonders how long the Blair supporters within the Labour Party can stay when it is lead by Jeremy Corbyn and his like.  If there are any centre left or right MPs left in the Labour Party they should walk and form a new Party.  Sad day for the Labour Party. 



The Chemical Attack in Syria - Update 2 - Syrian Crisis


Lets Get Real:

The Russians and the Syrian Forces are covering up any WMD left after the chemical attack.   The French are right to stress that the chemical inspectors do not have ALL the time in the World, any WMD will be destroyed by the Syrians and Russians and the natural progression for WMD to decay.   The Allies should make it clear, that if the Syrians and Russians place blocks on the inspectors then the Allies might do another attack.   It is time to play hardball with the Syrians and the Russians.
