Opinion: Boris is elected in a storm, but is he the trusted captain to get the public safe on the shore?

“Interviewer: Can you give an example, in your political life, when you’ve set your own self-interest aside for the benefit of the country?

Boris Johnson: Well, er, pfft, um, it’s a good question, but er, I, I, I would, you know, I don’t, obviously, it’s an embarrassing but, but true that, um, er, it is obviously, possible, er, how should I put this, to make more money, er, by not being a full-time politician. Um, I don’t, I don’t want to put too finer point on it, er, but, you know, you have to, you have to, you have to, make sacrifices sometimesConservative Leadership Contest Hustings in Darlington (5 July 2019)

Well, this whole Brexit ordeal has been chaotic and without any strong leadership. The Conservative Party or the Tories have been shambolic. They have now used the added time from Brexit Day in March to fight. Whose get the mantle post Theresa May, instead of finding liveable solutions to the biggest quest in their lifetime.

Alas, that is what the British does and the elite, who will not pay for the added austerity, troubling markets or hard border with Northern Ireland. While the Irish has prepared over three budgets and trying to get secured by the European Union. The Tories are flying in without much and still trying to configure the needed basics for a withdrawal from the Union. It is clear, that the Tories and the government doesn’t care much of the consequences as long as they are in power. If they did care, they would have shown the effects of leaving and also put up proper measures to tackle the coming hardships of post-EU membership.

Still, Boris Johnson will try to make it sound simple, as the populist and braggadocio man he is. Johnson will smooth talk, just like he did as Foreign Secretary, but don’t expect him to do much. Because, that is something he really doesn’t do. His a lazy bugger in power and has shown little flex, than playing for the guards whenever it has fitted him.

Johnson is a conning man, a man of big promises, lot of bravado but little flair or care for others. That is why other MPs are resigning as he becomes the PM. Others are condemning him, even before he starts, because has shown racists remarks and utter machoism in attitude. Not the perfect start for any MP, but this is a self-created obstacle, as he himself has shown disregard for a big portion of society and his racial slurs will always follow him.

That is why a man whose career has been to mystify and create division, will not supposed be there to create unity is utterly ridiculous, its obnoxious and demeaning to the public. Maybe the people of Brexit Party and far Right loves this man. But very few else do.

This is not the sort of man that should guide the British out of the self-made crisis they are in, which has been inflected on them because of men like Johnson. Who is a self-seeking diva and lover of power, but doesn’t know how to use it or get things done. That is the sort of man at the helm in London. Surely, Brussels must shiver, but also the other capitals, because his a despicable example of a man and a politician. Boris the Blade has arrived and it’s going to get bloody. Peace.

Brexit: Anne Milton MP resignation letter to Prime Minister Theresa May (23.07.2019)

Brexit: Alan Duncan MP resignation letter to Prime Minister Theresa May (22.07.2019)

Opinion: I been told with time things will be better, but does it?

Well, in troubling times, as things are moving both forward, backward and sideways. It seems that we can defer from enterprising the idea, that everything gets better with time. Surely, this doesn’t mean we as folk doesn’t change, broaden our minds and expand our patterns of thought. No, we might do this, but this doesn’t change the narrative nor the times we are seeing passing by.

We are not a single leaf in the wind. Neither are we a recycled raindrop, awaiting next part of its existence to become evaporated before becoming clouds and be rained down upon us, yet again. Even if life goes in cycle and we as human beings are repeating history, sometimes even without knowing.

The ignorance of out times, as we are silent to the death of immigrants, as we are deaf to the pleas of separated kids in camps in the United States. The silence and lack of outcry, as the US tried to start a war in Iran and tried to enforce an coup d’etat in Venezuela. This is all happening, but no worries. As well, as the European Union have favourable deals with the Libyan, Egyptian and Sudanese Governments to stop immigrants from coming to the shores of Italy, Spain and Greece. That is just we do to each other, instead of giving a helping hand in need, we let people drown with excuses of nationalism, border security and fear of the unknown.

We are living in a time, where there is no problem to silence the media, weaponize social media and misuse state resources to suppress dissidents. This is happening all over, not only in dictatorships, but also in the “free world”. Where leaders are using their means and using their techniques to sophisticated silence and letting the ones defying their stance suffer. There are plenty of journalists in the recent time died by poison, being arrested and tortured. Plenty of opposition leaders in exile and struggling to regain their vitality. That is all happening, but nothing contemplating on the reasons for this.

The weaponization of social media with bots and big media, where the hacking, leaks and misuse of information combined with blind narrow-minded followers, who doesn’t think of the consequences of the acts nor they think of what the message they are spreading. The parties, the leaders are letting their camps all go out into the battlefield. Build their borders filled with landmines, barbed-wire and trenches. In this field, everyone who disagrees is traitors, radicals or even stupid individuals who has no sense. While the bombs, the hypocrites and the vilified commentators should just be blocked or silenced. Because, they are just fake and frauds, while the almighty leader is the ones to listen too.

While this is happening, the wars are steady, they are not stopping. The trade-wars, the Brexit is pumping in its sketchy way. The troubles of Yemen, Syria and Ukraine continues, like wars of old. The slavery trade of Mauritania continues as well as possible slave-ships on the outside of Libya. While, the Amnesty and Human Rights Watch, appeal to the International Community, the Western Sahara is still a punchline for the Pan-African Political Parties, but the world is not caring about the plights of the people there, as long as the big-companies can fish outside the coast there.

The peacekeeping missions are lacking funding, as the missions are staying and lingering, also paying off dictators to send military forces to conflict zones in Sahel, Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia and so on. The former colonial powers of France, Belgium, United Kingdom and others are still holding their grips of former colonies, as they have new units to treat the new leadership and “open markets” for their products. If they need, they will kiss the rings of dictators and others, to just get the needed resources for a dime.

We are living in fabulous times, we are living times of adventures of freedom, liberty and justice. Where labels of Fairtrade, trade-unions and others are continuing to pushing the envelope, but still not seeing thing true. As the illicit trade practices continues in many markets and by plenty companies, multi-national earning fortunes on their production units paying little or none to its contractors. This wouldn’t been acceptable in the industrialised world, but in the developing world it is dandy. Some in our time, even says these people should be grateful to even have a job. That is how dark our time is.

They says things are getting better with time, are they? There was a promising generation of leaders in the 80s and 90s, but they became alike the former dictators and militaristic regimes of the past. There are little resemblance of the past positive movement. While we are celebrating mediocrity and lacklustre approach to the future problems. We are supposed to be content and think this spoils of our times is good.

While we are not even able to solve the crimes of the 70s and 80s, while struggling with the aftermath of the politics done in the 90s and 00s. We are supposed to be all smiles, as the first decade of this millennium is here. The millennial’s can vote and we are supposed to promise them a greater future. When we are leaving behind the same old issues, with the same old greed and the lack of will to accept the mantle given to us.

Things was supposed to get better time, but apparently they are not. Maybe I am in a dark place today, but I do not see it. Because, we didn’t make it better, we didn’t push it to a greater place, we just let it be and watched a game of football. We didn’t care and didn’t sign up for a party, NGO or even go in a demonstration. We just looked and wonder, when is our turn?

Well, it isn’t given to us, just like the leaders of our day wasn’t given to them either. They fought and took it. If we want change, maybe we need to do the same. Because, things aren’t getting better. I see darkness, I see sinister acts going unpunished and the innocent dying for no fucking reason. Peace.

Brexit: Boris Johnson MP letter to Jeremy Hunt MP (25.06.2019)

Brexit: Jeremy Hunt MP letter to Boris Johnson MP (21.06.2019)

Opinion: Boris the Blade, sorry Boris of the Tories at the helm?

Abed Nadir: “Chaos already dominates enough of our lives. The universe is an endless raging sea of randomness. Our job isn’t to fight it, but to weather it together, on the raft of life. A raft held together by those few, rare, beautiful things that we know to be predictable” (Community, Season 3, Episode 4, 2011).

Well, it the Conservative and Unionist Party, the Tories elects Boris Johnson to take over the helm after Theresa May. Surely, the Brexit will end in an utter fiasco, the party will be in shambles and the populists will get a hold of power.

Boris is the sort of man, whose had no trouble stabbing people in their back and moments later kissing their asses. That is just who he is, also is a womanizer, racist and a man of total disregard of people, except himself. An Etonian without no high regard for the common man, except when he needs their votes.

Who knows if he will beat Dominic Raab, Michael Gove, Jeremy Hunt, Matt Hancock or Rory Stewart, because this is just first of plenty of votes. Even if Boris got the best results in the first tally in the internal voting. However, this is just the start, but shows some intent.

That Boris is the frontrunner and has such a big margin from the get-go is a worry, as the signs of the tides, which are ahead. That the MPs are voting in favour of him. Shows also their fear and their reckless attitude towards it all. Boris wasn’t a smooth operator as a Foreign Secretary, he didn’t deliver anything substantial or help the Brexit Process as an Brexiteer. No, he did nearly nothing, just like several other hard-liners.

Therefore, this vote will be a shambles, this is the mere travesty, where the Tories get to have a new vote, to have a referendum on their leadership. While the public have to look at it and squint at it too. While the Tories themselves will not give the public a second chance for a snap election nor a new referendum, as the Brexit is already a beacon of self-destruction. Just that the leadership of the two major parties won’t say that, in fear of the fearmongering salesman of Nigel Farage and Company.

If Boris Johnson takes over, expect more resignations, more troubling negotiations and also fabulous expenses put without consideration of the tax-payer. That is the sort of man he is and he shows it again and again. Boris will misuse the power he has and scrap vital things, just to have the seat. He just don’t care, as long as his the king.

Boris will not bring wealth, stealth and health, only chaos.

This is the darkest timeline, surely, the Community show warned us, but we didn’t listen. It was shambolic under PM May, but will not become smooth sailing under the leadership of Johnson. He will only undermine himself and his allies, he will come with empty pledges and knowingly, know that the EU will not comply. Because, he knows this, but want to be popular in the eyes of the people, even if it means not staying true to the reality. That is why the Brexit process been such a mess and continues to be so.

Boris the Blade, Boris Johnson will not succeed, it isn’t in him. He might win this leadership contest, because of his savvy ways with political infighting, but externally. He will loose, BIG. Peace.

Brexit: The 1922 Committee – Press Release (07.06.2019)

Opinion: Theresa May leaves with a terrible legacy… and one unlucky person will pick it off where she left!

Prime Minister Theresa May is soon history, as she leaves the office on the 7th June 2019. As the final days of her term in office, which started only one the 13 July 2016 and soon ends. The end of her time at the helm is near and there is hope for change. Because nothing has gotten better during her time.

She was promising strong and stable government in the campaigns during the snap election of 2017. Which has been far from the truth. Without checking, I think she has the highest number of resignations in the history of short governments. The Tories have really left her behind and the numbers after my calculation up to 36. This is not only the high-ranking, the people of statute and the ones who is bearing the party. But the ones whose key roles has to been to achieve what she promised. Stability and deliver Brexit. Two things she never did and will not.

Surely, she will enjoy the perks of being an MP and sit on the backbenches. Even linger on and get some committee’s, where she still have power. Maybe even at a later stage become a Secretary or a Minister again. That is why I have little sympathy for her crying and her emotional presser today.

Because, nothing she has done during her time has been good. The austerity measures, the policies she has sponsored and the people who has been deported. They she should have to address, the ones who has gotten hurt and damaged because of her rule. That she didn’t support or even try to help the poor. Make it harder to get Community Housing and so on. More people are using food-banks and the Brexit isn’t ensuring a stable economy either.

Therefore, there is little to scream hurray about, because someone has fix the chaos she has created. David Cameron really stepped away without so much fuzz in concerns to this. He left because of smartness after losing in the Brexit Referendum of 2016. That is when May was ready to step in and take over the mantle.

As a PM she has been wobbling, stonewalling and not really delivering. Theresa May will not leave with a favourable legacy, instead she will be remembered for bad dancing, even worse policies and lack of results in her key policy, deliver and simple, an easy Brexit. Something that never existed and never will be. She wanted to known for the Brexit Agreement with the European Union, the one who has failed three times in Parliament. She has to postpone it and even ruined Brexit Day. That is how bad the PM has been on delivering the key policy. The Withdrawal from the European Union.

But in concern of Brexit. No one could ever WIN. There could only be losers. Without a shadow of a doubt, Theresa May lost. Not in a brave fight, not in a fight she could control, no she lost because she couldn’t keep the cabinet in order, nor have the outcome she wanted in Parliament. There was no safe haven and that is why there was even plenty of ‘No Confidence’ votes. She overcame them, but she never truly won peoples hearts.

This has been a slow train coming and the Conservatives will not only have the battle for the throne. But the next one has to jump hoops to stay. The postponement of Brexit without a deal, without an agreement and without securities. Really going to set things off. The next PM and the leader of the Tories really has to steer a ship in the midst of a hurricane. They are either able to come to shore or they will sink. There is both lack of trust and also no signs of possible change.

At this stage, the only thing that can change this is another election, which again changes the dynamics in Parliament. Where the levels of MPs and the possible for other voting can happen or even a another referendum to revoke the Article 50. However, that is pipe-dreaming with the leadership struggle that May is leaving behind. At this moment of time, I couldn’t care less about that. Even if these sort of things to unleash Rees-Mogg or Boris Johnson on the world. Not to forget the other character in David Davis. All of these are men who has to big ego for their own capacity. These people wouldn’t have the ability or the personality to steer this ship in the hurricane. It needs someone steering it steady and secure that they are balancing the boat. Instead, they are more into their entitlement, than thinking of the consequences of their actions.

That is why the Brexit, the price of the policies and the lack of care is evident. This is what May leaves behind. A terrible legacy, a uncertainty and possible tasks ahead, which she has unfinished business. This is giving up after postponing the inevitable. May didn’t have it in her. The other people will have to find another way, but if that is possible. Time will tell, but the disaster is in full-effect.

Now it is up to the next unlucky person to take over from May. Just like she was the one threading the water after Cameron. Surely, he will be remembered in a whole other regard, than May. Peace.
