Attempts to negotiate with the EU are bound to fail - Yanis Varoufakis

Yanis has been there and been given the run around by the EU and its 5 Presidents. The EU demands clarity from us but it never gives clarity. Who is responsible for what is a quicksand of ambiguity in the EU. The EU does not want to negotiate a mutually beneficial deal with us. It wants us to surrender unconditionally as if we had been defeated in a major war. It wants us to pay them huge financial reparations. That number keeps changing as well. It is the EU way but when one asks what are we paying for there are no answers just bluster and Gallic shrugs.

We obviously cannot accept this so I ask why bother? We have a perfectly good alternative, WTO rules that 93% of World trade is conducted under. What is happening is a meaningless dance to cover.
HMG's back from accusations, that the Lib Dems, have already made that we did not try to negotiate. We have a very active 6th column in our country from our own government officials Sir Humphrey et al to the CBI, TUC, Labour party, thespians over paid VCs,  the BBC,the list is endless. but they all have one thing in common, they are all on the EU payroll and EU promises of preferment..

John Redwood hit the nail on the head in his blog,

http://johnredwoodsdiary.com/2017/09/18/how-complicated-is-brexit/

The Remainer's tactics are delay, delay and yet more delay. At the same time there will be a constant drip of EU propaganda via EU sympathetic journalists. Most insidious is the Lib Dem scandalous  policy that there should be a  second Referendum on the results of the government's so called negotiations. There can be no better bargaining chip for the EU and no better way of betraying our country.

May was right to say no deal is better than a bad deal. We  must stick to this and wait.

Sooner or later the other peoples of the EU will realise they are simply the slaves of the Fourth Reich. The so called European Court of Justice is no such thing. It is a political court designed to advance the EU's political objectives. EU economic arguments are always subservient to EU political objectives. I made this argument in 1972 when I was in the Civil Service and I was vilified. Most politicians had not even bothered to read the Treaty of Rome and in particular the clause on ever closer union.

In the EU we are dealing with an aggressive expansionist empire every bit as bad as the Third Reich and Napoleon's Continental system. The crunch will come in the Ukraine where Napoleon and Hitler came to grief but not before many millions of innocents had died. If the EU takes on Russia it will be history repeating itself for the third time.

Listen to Yanis and get out of the EU right now..

Boris is also  right

Bojo's piece on Brexit was a tour de force

Bojo did as much as anyone to win the 2015 in out EU referendum. He is Foreign Secretary and the EU has always been an FCO responsibility. He is far more qualified to opine on the EU than Hammond, Rudd, Morgan etc so why has he been so outrageously attacked?

BoJo has a real brain unlike the three non-entities I mention above. He writes well and wittily again unlike the 3 Remoaners above. Real talent is always attacked by lick spittle sycophants of little ability.

But worse than that for our 3 Remoaners people like BoJo and unlike the Maybot he likes people. He is a fun guy. Nobody ever accused our 3 Remonaers of being fun people. Hammond looks like and behaves like Uriah Heap. Rudd and Morgan act like head girls seeking to impress the headmistress. by swallowing wasps.

Janet Daley in today's Sunday Telegraph came closest to my view of BoJo. "  He always seemed to me to be a serious person pretending to be unserious" Spot on Ms Daley.He is very clever and hides it by faffing around whilst he considers which of the possible answers he could give to a journo's question is the best. The journos with their non BoJo brain power  do not see this.

Another description was given by Sir Cathcart D'eath in Tom Sharpe' great read Porterhouse Blue. "Looks stupid is clever" as opposed to the 3 Remonaers, "Look clever are stupid".

Like Jacob Rees Mogg, Bojo 's greatest political value is that ordinary people like him, Old Etonia tie and all. Put JRM and Bojo on TV and the Tories will win hands down. The BBC will try to get their bien pensants like Paddy on camera as much as possible but people don't warm to Paddy and his ilk. The Lib Dems did have one guy in the BoJo seat winning league, Charlie Kennedy so the Lib Dem establishment got rid of and replaced him with Menzies Campbell a man in the Hammond mould. Second rate talents feel much more comfortable with second rate leaders.

Juncker's Wehrmacht & Third Reich. Manna for Farage.

Here is link to the drunkard's so called speech:

https://youtu.be/oke7se7VRus

The local Lib Dems tried to shout me down a year ago when I warned that the EU was planning to have its own army. I was of course correct as Juncker confirmed today and the Lib Dems were as always living in cloud cuckoo land. Never the less there are 100 Lib Dem peers in the House of Lords many put their by the closet Lib Dem David Cameron. They all love the sound of their own voices and can spout pro EU rubbish and without a qualm damage our country citing their Guardianista inspired North London consciences as justification for ruining the lives of ordinary working people.

Here is Nigel Farage's response.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFw6IjIErtc


Juncker is a gift for Farage. Juncker did more than anyone to win our Referendum for the Leave campaign. As long as Juncker and his pal Verhofstadt keep on talking the British people will be more and more convinced they did the right thing in voting to leave. A Remainer's life is not a happy one as Gilbert and Sullivan wrote.

Keep up the good work Herr Juncker.

Corbyn the master of double speak and confusion

It might be purposeful, it might be incompetence – either way fudging the party’s position is likely to win votes. It did in June so why not use it again!
That is how the Spectator describes Corbyn's many self contradictory statements and positions. I agree with the Speccy it will win votes from the young and gullible who will latch on to the last thing Corbyn says. He is as big a con man as Tony Blair but operates in a totally different manner. His many self contradictions are not often challenged by the hacks and when they are Corbyn  laughs them off.Photo published for Jeremy Corbyn’s clever confusion on Brexit | Coffee House

He is a front man for some very dangerous hard line leftists who thanks to May's incompetence could easily come to power in the UK. Do not believe his cuddly image. This snake oil sales man is very dangerous. He is a monster May created which she now has no idea how to control.
  

BBC, the home of fake news

I suggest you read this report from the Conservative Woman website on the BBC alleged race hate murder by UK feral youth. The BBC report was wrong and misleading. Why do we have to fund this EU propaganda organisation?

https://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/david-keighleys-bbc-watch-bbc-bias-turns-street-scuffle-anti-brexit-cause-celebre/

This is no new thing. I saw the BBC report a bit of lad's humour at Taunton cricket at 5pm ground during Steve Waugh,s tour turned into a crowd riot by 6:30 pm on the BBC news.

Complaints to the BBC get nowhere, its the BEEB judging the Beeb plus the claim journalistic exemption from FoI requests. We need a genuine independent complaints procedure totally out with BBC editorial control given a regular prime time slot on BBC 1 to air the licence payer's grievances.

Mr Trump has nothing on the BBC when it comes to manufacturing fake news.

Get on with it Mrs May and stop this North London propaganda at source.

Piece below from Guido shows what the BBC political journos  should be writing.

Corbyn is whipping his MPs to vote against Brexit even though he privately supports it. Caroline Flint says MPs should rebel against the Labour whip. Thanks to Keir Starmer Labour officially want to stay in the single market during the transition, even though Corbynistas think the single market is a neoliberal tool of the bosses and want to leave it. Tom Watson says Labour could stay in the single market forever, yet John McDonnell says we have to leave it to respect the referendum result. Frontbenchers Jon Ashworth and Jenny Chapman say Watson is wrong, Heidi Alexander and Alison McGovern say he is right. Diane Abbott and Clive Lewis sayLabour must support free movement, Corbyn and Starmer say free movement will end after Brexit. Barry Gardiner says staying in the customs union would be a “disaster“, yet Starmer says we should remain in “a” customs union during the transition. Watson says we could stay in indefinitely. Tony Blair says we should just stay in the EUGot that?

Why UK productivity lags that of France & Germany? - Business hooked on cheap EU labour!

I could have asked why do we need so many immigrants? There are three inputs to economic activity, land, labour and equipment. Labour can be further split into skilled and unskilled. Unskillled is easy to recruit and in the UK involves little long term costs thanks to a US imported hire fire them culture. Investment in equipment however does incur considerable long term costs as does skilling your own people.  Labour and equipment are functionally substitutable for each other to a considerable extent but for big business its a no brainer just go out and buy cheap labour from Bulgaria etc or even better India where you can source already trained skilled labour as well. Its a double whammy as the great British taxpayer gets to pay the social costs of the immigrants. So you are privatising the profits and nationalising the costs. Wunderbar as the Germans say.

Great for profits and top management with their rewards linked to profits but very bad for our indigenous young who need training. Hence as Matthew Lynn writes in today's DT business is protesting, I would say squealing. about HMG's plans to reduce immigration, Business cares not a jot about immigrant welfare. Their attitudes are as they were in Victorian times, drive down labour costs and increase profits. We tackled this problem in the 19th century Britain with the setting up of trade unions who, realising they had to control the way laws were made, set up the Labour party.

The Labour party is sadly no longer the party promoting workers interests. It has been taken over by the liberal elite to promote their crack pot ideas for social engineering, diversity, feminism etc. To parody George Orwell its black face good, white face bad , homosexuality good heterosexuality bad, women good men all evil rapists, North London BBC driven media good, Northern working men's clubs bad. This will of course lead to electoral and economic disaster.  but it will be the workers not the political elite who pay the price.

To return to my title question why do the Franco Prussians beat us in the productivity stakes. They have far tighter labour laws which forces employers to make far better use of their existing work force. They have genuine worker representation on company boards. They pay far more attention to real apprentice ship training and far less to media studies etc. One of  the best apprenticeship schemes in the South West is run by the French company EDF. Germany industry is run by engineers not PPE and legal graduate bull shit merchants that dominate our company boards and the higher echelons of government. These people are very good on the media but tend to be very poor at running anything even breweries. We have to rid ourselves of our dependence on cheap imported labour. My esteemed neighbour Lord  Paddy Pantsdown could not answer my wife's simple question in a public meeting,  what do we do when our imported care workers get old and need care? I ask Mogg to translate into Latin, who cares for the worn out aged imported carers? Lib Dems? I think not.

As Barnier says the clock is ticking on this. Business must recognise this, adapt and stop this pointless political lobbying and PR to try and tilt the rules in their favour and get off the cheap imported labour fix. One of our great companies was Coats of Paisley the thread makers. It was the first genuine multi-national. Around 1920 it had manufacturing plants in almost every country in the world. When it trained its management from its apprentices  it did well. When it went over to graduate management it lost its place. Coats is still there but is a shadow of itself. Paisley is now best known as the hometown of AF Neil as Nigel Lawson, Thatcher's great reforming Chancellor, is now best known as Nigella's father.

Three great EU claims exploded



There are 3 great lies the Remoaners love to peddle: They are all the EU claiming credit for the achievement of others:

The EU has kept the peace in Europe since 1958, a. It was the US military might that has kept us at peace

EU invented workers rights and before the EU no one had any rights. I exploded this one in my blog of yesterday.

Graph below shows how the EU is a diminishing export market for us and explains why we should put our efforts into other faster growing markets. The EU market is of steadily diminishing importance to us.

What is more significant is we run a surplus with these non-EU markets and a huge deficit with the EU.

One picture is worth a thousand words
