We now learn that the leader of the House of Commons, a slow-witted idiot called Andrea Leadsom, has tabled the Adjournment (Summer) motion to start the Commons recess four days earlier than anticipated. You know why? Because the government can’t govern. There’s more.
The Conservatives are desperately protecting Theresa May from potential rebellion, leadership challenges and have concluded the only way to deal with it is to award MPs four extra days holiday. The absolute state of this country.
Still reeling from Donald Trump’s chaotic visit, the government benches resembled a civil war tonight, with less than honourable members hurling abuse and insults at each other. Everyone has lost the plot.
It’s a combination of a few things. The scumbag lying politicians who sold Brexit as a simple, straightforward exercise which would instantly make us better off and save the NHS have been found out. And they’ve mostly buggered off. Having set fire to the country, Farage, Johnson and Davis have done a bunk and left it to other inadequates to try to sort out and they can’t. The truth is that the heroes of Brexit had no plan and have no plan beyond a hard Brexit and hope for the best. Then there is Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.
My thoughts today surrounded what exactly it is that Putin has on Trump. Nothing else can explain Trump’s fawning, gushing treasonous words and actions. And why are they in it together? Well, they are both far right nationalists for one thing, just like Farage and co at home. And nationalists will oppose NATO and they will oppose the EU. They will oppose anything that they feel threatens their preferred journey towards nationalism. That is why Putin hates the EU, that’s why Trump hates it. And that’s why the hard Tory right lines up behind Trump.
I now firmly believe that something very horrible is happening with our politics, something we cannot control. In Britain, we are increasingly weak and divided as power drains away from our country. Our leaders – and I include all major parties in this – are out of their depth, devoid of vision. We are drifting to who knows where?
Something very horrible is happening and our leaders decide the only way to deal with it is to have a longer holiday. With May, she once again hopes and prays that she can govern by constantly kicking everything into the long grass. She could never get away with this forever.
I wish somehow we could united this country and also the world because I fear things are now about to get much worse before they get better. It isn’t just Brexit, or the Crimea. It’s Trump declaring war on Iran I worry about. It’s Putin poisoning British citizens on British soil. It’s fascists like Steve Bannon agitating in Europe to try to fill the European parliament with his fellow travellers. All this happening when millions are on poverty wages doing dead end jobs, getting poorer and poorer while the rich just do that they do and get even richer.
Today was the worst of days. In the weeks and months ahead, we may look upon days like this as the good old days. We’re in a lot of trouble. Remainer, leaver; you know that to be true.
