Once again
Today 00:13
Martin is with me in lamenting the pitiful state of politics - when an old fashioned BLUNDERBUSS filled with rubbish is deployed to massage public opinion. Quite frankly it is like listening to turkeys, the discussions engaged in by these "professionals" in order to influence our opinion have become a babel - not in the least informative or constructive.

They are all well able to talk - but how much of what they say informs the debate - the only politicians who make any sense are Martine McGuinness and Michael Martin, who have obviously thought hard about Brexit and its consequences for Ireland.

I am afraid that this is not going to end well for the Tories, hopefully the party will split and the "Luddites" will be joined by the Bill Cash and Boris Johnson fan club when they form their own party having merged with what is left of UKIP.
The sensible members of the Conservative Party can then perhaps be re-cast as being just right of centre, which would enable them to form a government with like minded individuals in other parties.

The idea that Jeremy Corbyn could be the next Prime Minister does not bear thinking about or that Boris has a political future that I would feel like voting for.

Mrs Thatchers brand of "capitalism" has run its course, the ideas that she let loose are now coming home to roost as the economy starts to misfire. The many friends that Britain has around the world, do not seem all that numerous to me and yet we are told that they will rescue the UK from this mess that has been created - "because of the UK's power prestige and influence.

Europe is a social economy which could do with being improved, so far as accountability is concerned. The rise of populism in parts of the continent needs to be addressed but on the whole I prefer a social economy to raw capitalism, because it seems to me to have failed, when you look at how well it works when applied to the NHS or to the type and value of the jobs that it creates - apart from those in the City or the higher levels of Public Service and Parliament.

Good luck all.
Amen.

RE: Brexit

Excellent piece on the FT about Brexit.

https://www.ft.com/content/0d4f6ac0-3111-11e9-80d2-7b637a9e1ba1

Not sure if the link will work but the article is well worth a read

If not, just do a google search for 'brexit ft act1' and you should be able to find it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

ACT 1

The next few weeks are likely to evolve in three distinct phases, much like a three-act play. Act 1 is all about killing off the disastrous outcome of leaving the EU on March 29 without a deal, which remains the default. Parliament clearly rejects that option and has now done so twice — albeit without engaging the legal muscle required to cancel Article 50 should a no-deal Brexit become otherwise inevitable.

ACT 2

Act 2, which could prove very short, will revolve around final attempts to obtain some kind of compromise with the EU. It needs to be sufficiently Brexity to persuade the hardliners in the Conservative party and the Democratic Unionist party that a fig leaf over the initial Northern Ireland backstop provides enough cover for their partial retreat; or, alternatively, sufficiently like the European Economic Area (the so-called Norway option) to persuade soft Brexiters that they have achieved “Brexit in name only”.

ACT 3

Act 3 begins with the prime minister, centre stage, looking for salvation: the threat of no deal will have been disarmed and her plan will still lack majority support. There are urgent appeals for someone (a deus ex machina) to write in a few more acts but delay for its own sake achieves little. There will remain the option of going to the country by calling a general election — risky but tempting given the helpless Labour leadership — or going to the country with a referendum, which offers a choice between Mrs May’s Brexit deal and the deal we already have as members of the EU.

Not looking good for Brexiteers!

Be aware of the move upwards from here, be sharp and not short!!

Deal will be struck with EU for Brexit....with the backstop deal intact (give or take with legal niceties) and Labour support in the Commons (May will be gone shortly thereafter). Yesterday's vote in the Commons confirms the play!
Run in to FY results happening. Going to be a cracker and hopefully a sharp hike in dividends. Management have to sell the dividend story from here on as growth strategy not going to work looking forward.

Message is clear....this share price is too low and a rebound to NAV 1:1 is on the cards! What is that number.....7.70!!!!

Yes indeed
Wed 23:55
If only we had a Garret now - when we left Ireland Garret was in charge and I watched his hair turn white as he grappled with the mountain of debt that he had been left with.There was no such thing as delaying the proceeds of the sale of our home from transferring out of the country - in order to start again.
He was indeed a great man - the only one who could put a bell on the tail of Margaret Thatcher - boy I miss him and the integrity that he brought to public life and government. The footings that he put down for the Irish economy were sound even if it did take about seven years for the country to really benefit Bertie had a great spell while it lasted.
So far as the politics are concerned here, I am impatient for the change that must take place - and I suspect that once Brexit is resolved "MAY WE LIVE THAT LONG" the previous administration will be replaced and the DUP will hopefully be replaced, as the electorate becomes more sophisticated and puts aside the tribalism of the past in favour of something more enterprising and progressive.
The present shower have more in common with locusts as they massage the public purse building skyscrapers in Belfast, rather like the new Childrens Hospital in Dublin. Somebody's making money and a lot of it.
This is turning into one of my rants !!!
Good luck all.

I guess Torquay it depends how you define a 'long time'.

In the case of Susan, i would say she has been stuck on that godforsaken wall for an awfully long time...

And hotdog is patiently waiting on the far side so he can pelt her with a mound of rotten tomatoes and cucumbers!

Good luck with local politics in NI, both sides are crackers!!!

In the ROI it is much more clear cut.

FF are rotten to the core and FG are squeaky clean!

Just compare Charles Haughey and Garret Fitzgerald, who was a very fine man. That says it all.

Bye for now!

PS: Not sure if you tried the 19th hole yet at your local golf course?

Reminds me
Tue 22:30
I used to have a Spanish Señora who promised "to love me long time" - I miss her and the laughs we had over the fence.

The discordant note was the suggestion that our travel concession passes would lapse shortly after BR**it before we have even had a chance to use them really. We had a few trips planned over the summer which will still happen but we will have to juice the buggy.

Met the opposition to the Orange Men the other evening, when three of them turned up on the doorstep to make sure that we were on the electoral register, handed us the forms to fill. They came back this evening so I told them we would be voting for Fine Gael as I handed them the completed forms.

Maybe we are on verge of something constructive happening here but I'm not going to hold my breath whilst we are waiting for it.

Good luck all.

I think you may be a little pessimistic. I think with a 'no deal' Brexit it may still hold onto a price above 1 .
Time is running out for the EU to avert a lot of pain.

Not very likely in my opinion even though the economy is slowing - much more likely that the UK cycle has run its course and the bank are putting the brakes on at the commencement of a period harvesting their loan book.
They have plenty of big fish on their hook in the form of large mortgages so they are probably feeling more confident about their future. Looking at the price of houses in Dublin the prospects of our little share dropping to one cent does not seem very likely.
Good luck all...

What a fugh up- no matter what happens the Uk society is indefinitely divided. I never even dreamed / thought i would ever see the collapse of the union. For me it’s happening. Vera Lynn , the white cliffs of dover will be the UK top selling charts song. I do serious business with folk in the UK restoring vintage jeeps and they are looking at business drying up from europe with a hard brexit - and the domestic business has collapsed for them. It’s heart breaking to see. I’ve all but given up on BKIR...... it’s like a bad tenant
