Brexit Musings (15) – Waking-Up To BuzzFeed A day in the life of David Davis

BuzzFeed

Brexit guru, David Davis, was having a dream. The UK had become prosperous again, and the world’s 3rd largest economy. Stoke-on-Trent was rapidly becoming Europe’s cultural hotspot, and Liverpool, Europe’s largest seaport. Britain was still linked to Europe, although the Channel Tunnel had been sealed off and filled with sea water, as a precautionary measure. Britain’s […]

Theresa May Is Undermining Citizens’ Rights

rights

During her recent visit to China, Theresa May has trampled on EU citizens’ rights, as well as evading the question of human rights in China. She has hardly the time to recover from jet-lag, before playing host to Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, world champion in human rights. Does Theresa May really believe in […]

David Cameron Has Disrespected The Young

Brexit

David Cameron’s latest inept remarks about the seriousness of Brexit, remind me of a schoolboy’s minimization of the importance of the bad mark he just obtained in history, thinking that the subject is not important. A former UK prime minister, and founder of the “Brexit generation”, Cameron described the Brexit vote as, “a mistake”, and not, […]

British Citizens Fight For EU Rights In The Netherlands The timing and usefulness of this week's court action may be questioned, but how has Brexit come to this?

Citizens

A group of British citizens, living in the Netherlands, has launched a court case, in an attempt to preserve their rights as EU citizens, post-Brexit. They feel that some of these rights will be lost, after Brexit, and hope that their case will be heard by the European Court of Justice (ECJ). Don’t get me wrong. I […]

Farage

The Leave side is in danger of not even making the argument. – Nigel Farage Nigel Farage is in a state of panic – big time. You know the feeling, I’m sure. You just know that something is going to go incredibly wrong in your life. Remember that summer, when you were having a romantic time […]

Play It Again, Nigel – The UK’s Second Referendum?

referendum

Nigel Farage, former Ukip leader and Brexitmania guru, seems very confident that a second referendum would lead to a massive vote in favour of the UK leaving the EU. I think if we had a second referendum on EU membership we’d kill it off for a generation. The percentage that would vote to leave next time […]

The British Passport – A Rhapsody In Blue

If you thought that the passport saga, instigated by the wonderful Mrs May, couldn’t get any worse, it has. Now, it’s the turn of the EU to not appreciate the true beauty of colour. If all goes to plan, the EU is going to delay all unfortunate holders of Theresa May’s “iconic” blue passport, at a […]

Brexit Musings (12) – “Fool Britannia”

passport

I thought that I could peacefully finish the day, away from Brexit and Facebook, when I accidentally came across the following tweet from a leader of a Western democracy, whose shoulders are probably hurting from the weight of responsibility, that they carry. The tweet is so full of self-contemplation, disregard for others (bordering on contempt), […]

Brexit Musings (11) – Blue Is The Colour, Brexit Is The Game

One of the most iconic things about being British is having a British passport. – Brandon Lewis (Immigration minister) In its first major announcement for getting a “country that works for everyone“, the UK government has announced the re-emergence of the giant hogweed, once labelled as Britain’s most dangerous plant. Touch it once, and you […]

Brexit Musings (10) – A Happy BreXmas To You Too, Mrs May

May

Now Theresa – May I call you Theresa?  Thank you so much for your personal Christmas letter addressed to hundreds of thousands of poor innocent mugs like me, who couldn’t vote in a referendum that we never asked for. I hope you don’t  mind if I distort just a teeny-weeny little bit, your much thought […]
