You are quite right of course - another Conservative with a Chinese crystal ball (must have forgotten to recharge the battery's) - resigns over the plans for the third runway and loses the bye election to the people who did not vote for Brexit.
Now the fun begins - the Supreme Court is required to give its ruling on Brexit, that Parliament should have the last word on the referendum. Will turkeys really vote for Christmas or will they set aside the will of the British people by frustrating their vote in the referendum.
What does that tell us about the democratic process and the people who participate in it by voting when given the opportunity. Like it or not skullduggery will happen, because our "servants" in parliament wish to remain there for the perks availed of by the members who are not that well known in their constituencies because they live miles away. When Rupert Allison was the MP here he was like the Invisible Man, spending about three hours a month in the constituency, which was the time that it took him to take dinner with a few of the local members of the party in a local hotel before he vanished back to Buckinghamshire in his Porsche.
The democratic deficit that exists in this country is ever more exposed by the lack of informed debate both before and since the referendum. It shows the people who represent their electorate in a far from favourable light, I have not heard one of them put any worthwhile thoughts together apart from Ken Clarke, who can always be relied on to demonstrate acumen and a sound assessment. They don't allow him on often enough, but I am sure that his voice is not silent within the party now after the Richmond result.
Ah Pete this guy Nomad is wrecking my head altogether. Sure I thought we were taking about the turf and form for a wee punt on the horses. I was thinking to myself maybe I sell the lot and put it on the horses or the dogs. On Monday we have Ayr, Tuesday Uttoxeter, Wednesday Hexham, Thursday Taunton and Friday Cheltenham. A packed week by all accounts and an opportunity to make make a fortune.
Little barb did not go unnoticed due to so much time being devoted to Brexit and politics - but that is the nub of the problem - somehow this present crop of time servers must be persuaded to address the problem of the economy by pulling out their fingers.
I am very much in favour of paying them on results instead of allowing them to pay themselves in boom or in austerity whether they have earned it or not.
Until there is genuine growth in Europe and it resumes again around the world this is only a game of chance for small or no returns - unless you are prepared to buy shares by the million and who wants to take that risk??
The influx of French companies into the UK - you tell me in Kent - is very welcome I'm sure but how many jobs have they created for British people amongst a population of almost 70 million. How many will remain post Brexit when they rely on free access to Europe, which may not be as easy once St Theresa pulls the plug.
Retail businesses here are trading well at the moment because of the increasing success of our local hospitality establishments who are mostly staffed with Europeans. Because a lot of them are encouraged to live in they tend to earn less than the minimum wage in their pay packet because they are charged for accommodation and food. The ones from Lithuania and Slovakia etc are still happy with the arrangement because even at three pounds an hour 80 hours a week puts them well ahead of what they can earn in their homeland - if they get paid.
The best staff come from Poland who work hard and enjoy doing so, just as well because once this town gets moving these people have to work hard and for quite long hours. Quite a number of the hotel owners sought to exploit them but failed - they are excellent people mostly and well able to look after themselves - which is why their numbers in this town have dwindled from 6,000 to less than 700. They follow their social network and opportunities to earn money and good luck to them.
So far as Monday is concerned - a good day might see a rise to .23 which will probably induce a bout of profit taking.
Good luck all not on form this evening because it is - 2 C here and we are not used to it.
Not standing and knew he would not get vote,is this the end for Socialist Europe Looks to me Brexit and Trump will be in race for lowest corp tax Ireland already there Are BOI Shareholders ahead of pack with to days rise G L A
