A long drawn out garbled discussion on Brexit in the House of Lords.
Some sensible Lords are warning against bucking the people’s voice.
Some have a vested interest in staying in.
For the next two days 190 old farts are going to babble on about nothing in particular.
There will be controversy, rage, and I guess opposition.
Detailed scrutiny of the bill at committee stage is due to take place on 27 February and 1 March. If the bill is not amended, then it could theoretically be approved by the Lords at Third Reading on 7 March, becoming law shortly afterwards.
So that’s the three key dates to watch.
If however the peers do make changes to the bill, it would put them into conflict with MPs who would be expected by the public to overturn any Lords amendments.
After that the fighting will commence BIG TIME.
Such a stalling tactic will also be seen by the people, and I guess the media, as the House of Lords defying the will of the people.
Shortly thereafter there could be a public and media demand to disband the House of Lords. Something a lot of MP’s want. The battle could therefore be a short one.
The people are simmering at this moment, few having any appetite for time wasters.
Most just want it done and dusted and move on to Brexit.
This indecision and stalling is affecting the UK BIG TIME in trade and finances.
It’s also swamping us with economic migrants.
And it all started going wrong because of the judiciary and two immigrants who had nothing better to do but fk. up Brexit.
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has warned the UK it faces a “very hefty” bill for Brexit. He promised two years of “tough negotiation”, when discussions on leaving terms get under way between the government and the European Union. Exit will not come “at a discount or at zero cost”, he said in a speech to the European Parliament. (BBC)
Pillock! Be nice Juncker or you’ll reap a whirlwind.
For example, I can just feel an attack of the tariffs coming on.
The EU demands X, we tariff for twice as much.
The EU gets angry and refuses so we just walk away.
EU exports fall into a black hole.
for example, All them car makers with nowhere to sell to.
All those returning migrant workers to provide for.
Billions of Euros lost because of one man’s ego.
After all the EU is collapsing anyway, mainly thanks to Germany.
Others are openly talking referendum .
If Marine LePen gets in, that’s a done deal for France.
Whoops, bye-bye Euro.
Then, as more leave, the EU will end.
This fool needs to be replaced as he’s under some delusion that he is in charge.
He actually thinks he can dictate terms to us.
It’s a mighty big world out there Juncker and most want to trade.
WTO rules or not, the EU could be left way out in the cold by you being stupid.
I’ve also got a feeling that both Russia and China will want in on UK trading too.
Won’t that be funny.
EU sanctions on Russia busted by the UK and nothing the EU can do about it.
Play nicely Pillock. You won’t like us if we get cross.
An Israeli soldier who killed a wounded Palestinian attacker in a high-profile case has been jailed for 18 months.
Elor Azaria was found guilty of manslaughter for shooting dead 21-year-old Abdul Fatah al-Sharif in the occupied West Bank, last March. Azaria had told a colleague that Sharif, who had stabbed another soldier, “deserved to die”.
So let’s get it right.
A terrorist stabs another soldier, gets gunned down, then finished off and that’s wrong? I call that simple payback for the harm inflicted on one of his team. You also need to bear in mind that it occurred during 5 months of attacks by Palestinians that had killed 29 Israelis.
Yet Israel was split about this.
On one side you’ve got the “Good for him”, and on the other it sounds like the same ‘bleeding heart wasters” and “military brass” that abounds in the UK.
In the end the sergeant gets thrown to the legal wolves.
Hopefully Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will quietly step in and release him.
I would as failure to do so may result in a hesitation in other troops rather like in the UK.
Here, where many are leaving, some citing spurious legal action for events that happened in the field against the same type of terrorists.
A store removes a “racially offensive” Walking Dead T-shirt from a store after it left A shopper ‘horrified’. Not many, just one. Mr Lucraft (who may be a Methodist preacher) and wife visited a shop in Sheffield. They spotted the white t-shirt with the message “eeny meeny miny moe” and a picture of a bloodied baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire.
He said: “The slogan is “Eeeny meenie miny moe…..” It stops there, but of course we all know what the original said: “catch a n***** by his toe. The graphic has a large American baseball bat, wrapped round with barbed wire, and covered with blood. This image relates directly to the practice of assaulting black people in America.
It’s a FILM PROMO STUPID
Not a political or racial statement!
On returning home, Mr Lucraft send a letter to the firm’s Chief Executive as well as circulating copies to The Star, The Guardian and churches across Sheffield.
(Wow. He surely can pick them to achieve maximum effect).
This UK grown cream puff needs to be escorted by an adult at all times and is another reason why the UK is doomed to suffer a lingering, politically correct, nerdy type death.
A Welsh Muslim teacher (Juhel Miah, 25) was taken off a US-bound flight in Iceland by a US official in an ‘unjustified act of discrimination‘.
The incident unfolded when Mr Miah was refused permission by the US authorities after being selected for a ‘random security check.’
Only I wonder why the ‘random security check‘ was in quotes?
Military age, male, Muslim, and from a terrorist friendly country.
He holds a British passport but is obviously of foreign decent.
Visa granted or not , I’d tug him in an instant on those 5 points alone.
Interestingly President Trump’s original EO was to toughen vetting procedures for people coming from countries with terror ties.
That is probably true about the UK.
We radicalize some of the best murdering bastards in the world, allow them to go off and get trained, then to wage jihad, after which we let them back into the UK where they return to fulfilling lives as taxi drivers or car washers (to name just a couple of a multitude of trades).
That and the UK sells arms, provides military ‘assistance and training’, and gives money to some of the most despotic and terrorist friendly countries. Anyone disagree?
Hey, does this mean the UK wets in politics and the media will have another stab at banning President Trump from visiting again? I do hope so.
If only to see them mightily embarrassed once again.
Silence but for my heart
Ears a howling tone
Acrid fumes swimming my head
Tap, tap and click makes my mag
The pull and slam of my slide
I stumble, a quieted curse
A mewing of breath
Paining for life’s air
We look but we can’t find
Silence as they succumb
Us sitting quiet on cans
Drinking deep from our flasks
Silence all around
Such is the sight
As we tiredly walk away
Russia’s ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, has died in New York, the Russian foreign ministry has said. (1) He became ill in his office at Russia’s U.N. mission and was taken to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, where he died Monday. (2nd report)
His cause of death wasn’t immediately known and no other details have been released.
Silence is a catalyst for supposition and as no one Western likes the Russians, I’m thinking a ‘post–mortem‘ is needed and a quick cause of death proclaimed.
This could be mighty embarrassing for the US administration if this is not done fast enough to stop the conspiracy theorists running wild.
