BREXIT WAR: The things You don’t know, and the things They do know

Great reportage from the terroir, sits on the pallet with a long and satisfying bloom that will remain with one long into the evening unit its time for a Cognac.

For Me, I was transported to lords earlier today and the poem at Lords, which is not about Lords at all. And from there to Block Block Block.

I am processing parts 2 and 3 with a juxtaposition of Howe and his cricketing analogy,

How on earth are the Chancellor and the Governor of the Bank of England, commending the Hard ECU as they strive to, to be taken as serious participants in the debate against that kind of background noise? I believe that both the Chancellor and the Governor are cricketing enthusiasts, so I hope that there is no monopoly of cricketing metaphors. It is rather like sending your opening batsmen to the crease only for them to find, the moment the first balls are bowled, that their bats have been broken before the game by the team captain.

Margaret Thatcher: Yes, the Commission does want to increase its powers. Yes, it is a non-elected body and I do not want the Commission to increase its powers at the expense of the House, so of course we are differing. Of course…

The President of the Commission, Mr. Delors, said at a press conference the other day that he wanted the European Parliament to be the democratic body of the Community, he wanted the Commission to be the Executive and he wanted the Council of Ministers to be the Senate. No. No. No.

Or…. or…..or…..

Mrs Thathcer borrowed from De Gaulle of course and we all know now that Mrs Thatcher was right, if a little late to the party.

This I found a very good read earlier John, but not of your excellent vintage.

And a ghostly batsman plays to the bowling of a ghost,
And I look through my tears on a soundless-clapping host
As the run stealers flicker to and fro,
To and fro:

The Slog

me11 I’m grateful to a threader at The Slog for reminding me that the media censorship between the UK and the EU at the moment is a two-way street….or barricade, depending on your viewpoint. He’s right: all élites are feeding propaganda to their electorates.

But at the same time, there only appears to be a war between peoples here. As Kate Hoey has said from the outset, the real conflict is between the various electorates on the one side, and the Alt State élites on the other.


Here’s a quick pic of the last week or so’s headlines at La Dépeche:


As you can see, Macrony le Wunderkind is not doing terribly well at the minute. The Gilets Jaunes have exacerbated his already parlous spending deficit to the point where it now sits at an embarrassing 35%. His Prime Minister wants to bring in repressive laws that the National…

Protests in Venezuela good, protests in France bad!

Reblogged this excellent column. The double standards are Staggering.!/v/tonefreqhz/grch43y0
Once as farce and then as History and then as farce again.
There is a terrible ground hog day feeling, protests against iraq war etc. and WTO protests back in 1999

Covert Geopolitics

Large street protests in both France and Venezuela. Two Presidents with low approval ratings. But only one whose legitimacy has been denied by Western ‘democracies’ and by the French president himself.

May Inspired By Mols devices
Feints a Brino for Junkers Vices
All Agreed as Brexit was Ill-defined
Junker had spunked her from behind.

mesmile2 Oh dear, another five days pour down the Brexit brain-drain as May and Juncker are “locked in deadlock” in Brussels. She’ll be back home again tomorrow – a Friday. Then we shall have a weekend. Then some form of St Valentine’s Day love-in will take place. Then the half-term recess. In this manner is Brexit wished away.

‘Locked in deadlock’ could well be interpreted as two thespians agreeing violently for the enjoyment of the audience. Part of me thinks that – but a larger slice of my now really terribly bored brain somehow knows that (as I posted last night) the Brussels strategy was always to delay, to give Britain homework to delay further, to stonewall, to find an issue that would be insoluble, and then to play Lady Bountiful by granting an extension to Article 50. The strategy of these appalling people never changes: it is…
