Brexit: Boris couldn’t force his law on the Commons!

Well, for the first time in the reign of Prime Minister Boris Johnson he got the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement (Bill) through the second reading. However, later in the evening he lost on the program motion of the law. Meaning the government time-table to push the laws through the Commons, Lords and Royal Assent. Therefore, Boris lost again tonight after a minor victory.

The MPs, the acts of Parliament shows that they want proper scrutiny and assessment of the new Withdrawal Bill, which the government just released last night. Dozens of documents of amendments and costs of the bill. Which is all the job of the Parliament and their role as representatives. They are not there to sign-off to any idea the Cabinet nor the PM has. If it sounds bad, they can “naye” or amend it to make it righteous.

The PM lost the 31st October 2019. The Bill will not be pushed or finished by then. The HM Government have to hope for a helpful Brussels to buy more time. Because, the Tories, the PM has used his cards and empty gambles without winning. Tried to be a genius, but instead going bonkers.

This man has already shown disregard for the Commons and continues to do so. Because a law like this is about the watershed moment of withdrawing from the EU. Not just what sort of labels that should be on a pack of crisps. No, this is the legal binding changes, the trade-offs and further negotiations with the EU.

Therefore, the Tories should have given the Commons more time to digest the revised Withdrawal Agreement and the Withdrawal Agreement Bill. However, it gave it none and thought it would care to give way. The same house that has voted down the previous one THREE Times. It is like the PM cannot learn or know the hiccups of the past.

The arrogance of doing this today and thinking it would work. His dislodging the agreement and the bill at one point. Unless, his trying to configure it through the house, amendment by amendment, statute after statute. Will Boris do that or will he try to push it through another time before the 31st October?

Johnson is really showing his losing side. Boris should have thought this one out, but by proroguing the Parliament he lost valuable time for his due-date. However, that seems to forged and faked for his own image.

We know at one point this is supposed to end, but now its up to the mercy of Brussels. Something, that is funny considering how Brexiteers cannot stomach this and Remainers want a new referendum. Some speculate in a General Election, but who knows at this point. What we are seeing a government losing on their important votes.

Boris is not able to get a full house. His not able to succeed. Not that he wants to see that. That destroys his mind. It must be shattering for him. Not that I feel sorry for him, because he has made this bed and has to sleep in it.

Boris cannot fix Brexit, it will destroy him, just like it did Cameron and May. His next in line. He just don’t know it yet. Peace.

Opinion: Maimane should resign now…

I have said it often that if you don’t see that I’m black you don’t see me. My hope is not that we are a colour blind society, but we build opportunities for all and a nation where we can see our diversity expressed in its beauty” Mmusi Maimane (Bokamoso | South Africans have a shared responsibility to overcome racism, 28.08.2015).

Mmusi Maimane is in an impossible position as the leader of opposition and the leader of the Democratic Alliance (DA) in South Africa. However, with the election and the powerful return of Hellen Zille in the federal leadership of the party.

The values, the ethics and the leader should have enough insights to know what the party know has shown. They have shown that the values that Maimane is in stark contrast to Zille. Therefore, her sudden return are backfiring the works Maimane has done over the years.

That its why its time for Maimane to follow Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba and resign from the DA. Maimane shouldn’t be involved or function with the likes of Zille.

Who just wrote this in May 2019: “My biggest mistake in DA was to contribute in promoting Black leadership in DA and propelling both Mmusi Maimane and other Black provincial DA leaders to the echelons of power within DA. By doing so I lead DA to the trap of racial politics and promotion of skin colour over skill and talent” (Helen Zille – ‘I regret promoting Black leadership in DA – Helen Zille’ 27.05.2019).

So, we clearly see her motivation for her return. We already know what kind of leader she is and what she stands for. That has been evident for years, therefore, her acts and her words is despicable. That is why Maimane, who is tarnished by her, should follow Mayor Mashaba. That’s if he has integrity and guts. Because, he should show character and will, which he has proven with his continued fight for justice, rule of law and against corruption.

That is why Maimane now has a big challenge ahead of him. That is if he wants to be a voice for a rainbow nation, be a voice for a tolerant society and stand for equality for all people. Because, if he stands by Zille, he is trading his ethics and beliefs for a position. That is why Mashaba has shown him the way.

This will will cost Maimane, it will be hard, but his integrity and his stances will be intact. They will be true and not just empty slogans. If he really believes she is making DA a better party. Because, she already believes that Maimane has gone in the wrong direction. Therefore, she had to return and know wants her ways again. Than, the party will not be the diverse or the one of the image of Maimane. That is common knowledge. If not his blind, because he fears what happens when he resigns or steps away from the DA.

He should also know that, especially if he believes in his own words: “The struggle for a nonracial South Africa began in the early 1900s and continues to this day. The diverse people of our country will know neither peace nor broad prosperity until that ideal is achieved. Our historic agreement of 1994 was that South Africa belongs to all who live in it. The DA’s project is to promote that vision and continue the struggle for a nonracial South Africa. Our rich diversity is part of what makes this country so fascinating and beautiful. We should embrace it. Acknowledging diversity doesn’t make you a racist. On the contrary, it is the first step to embracing it. Apartheid will only be truly defeated when only one race remains: the human race” (Mmusi Maimane – ‘Bokamoso: We apologise for the error – Mmusi Maimane’ 29.10.2018).

He can still work for the same cause, he can build his own or together with others. If he resigns other DA leaders might join him and stand behind there. They might follow him elsewhere. As he has a capacity and already a name. A rising star, that many looks up. That is why Maimane should do the right thing. As the DA is going backwards and will be tarnished with Zille in the federal leadership. To think otherwise is not acceptable.

Maimane lost today, but he can win tomorrow, if he steps down and revamps his career elsewhere. That will cost, but his integrity and his ethical backbone can continue. But that will not believable, if he hangs around Zille. Peace.

Russian Probe: Trump Jr. and McGahn never testified before the Grand Jury!

Well, there are certain fellows who are hiding things, as they are not willing to testify and stand-up in front of the Grand Jury investigation in the Russian Probe, which was producing the Mueller Report. Surely, if all parties, the ones who plead guilty and sort out deals, and the ones on the sideline had followed the subpoenas, than the produced report to Congress would have looked different.

By what was released today by the Department of Justice. Is revealing. It is again showing the conspiracy of this administration to keep secrets and lack transparency. As Don McGahn didn’t testify, neither did the first son of the clan, Donald Trump Junior. The one who had the famous meeting in the Trump Tower and has never told a straight story since. Except lying and nepotism as the one of the family members close to the President.

Therefore, what is really evident. Was that Special Counsel wasn’t able to fulfil his mission, because the Department of Justice didn’t let or the associates of Trump wasn’t complying. Just like the President wasn’t either. Just like we see with the Congress investigating into the acts of the President. The state, all agencies are blocking the release of documents in-connection with the Trump-Ukraine scandal. The same was surely happening with the Trump-Russia Probe too.

Therefore, today’s revelation isn’t shocking. But more a pattern of the New York Gang and their state operations. That they will keep their friends close, but their enemies even closer.

We can surely see why, because we know that Jr. cannot hold his tongue just like his father. He will lie and forget the previous ones. That is why, he cannot testify, because sooner or later he corner himself in, if not he reveals shady dealings by close associates and he cannot do that.

Don McGahn was just showing loyalty. Which was subpoenaed, the former White House Counsel has done the bidding of his previous boss. But this puts into question what he knows and what he did in regards to the matter. This disgraces his name and questions if he cares about the law.

What we do know is that they will tarnish this report. That they didn’t testify. But if someone did hurt the Trump Organization or Trump Campaign. They would burn them and seal their fate for life. But since its them, then the law doesn’t matter. That is what the world has learned from this administration. The law doesn’t matter to them, but matters to everyone else. Others has to answer to subpoenas, but these people are above that. Peace.
