I am afraid my first bid floundered! But, as with all failures, one has to assess what has gone wrong and put it right.
My second bid is likely to be much stronger. I have thoroughly analysed the situation and realised that I was not focussed on my target group – the 160,000 Tory membership.
The country doesn’t count. All that is important is appealing to this tiny minority of extremists. It doesn’t matter what happens next. All that is important is impressing these few people and getting into power.
With that in mind I have put together a new manifesto! I think it’s a winner!
If elected I will:
- Stop all immigration.
- Kick out anybody who looks, sounds or could possibly be an immigrant.
- Ban Islam.
- Bomb foreigners – all foreigners!
- Abolish tax for everybody earning over £50,000
- Double the pay of all bankers and executives
- Abolish corporation tax
- Make socialism a crime
- Do away with all social welfare
- Make poverty a crime punishable by hanging!
- Bring back hanging (mass hanging as a public spectacle!!)
- Ban foreign languages in schools
- Arm the police with a shoot to kill policy for all crimes
- Do away with courts
- Make 10 years conscription compulsory
- Leave the EU by July 20th and nuke Brussels!
There!! Let Hunt and Johnson try to outdo that!
That will provide incentive and get Britain back to the top – show Johnny Foreigner that we mean business!!
The madness of Brexit is already costing us billions. It has already added years of austerity! Our growth is well down! Britain is being dismantled by Tory madness.
How many more jobs are lost to Brexit? How many more companies are fleeing abroad?
How many more high-paid workers will find themselves stacking shelves or delivering parcels for Amazon on zero contracts?
The ones who voted Brexit are the ones who will suffer most!
People like Rees-Mogg have already moved their wealth abroad and are making a killing out of this!
All we need now is a No-Deal Brexit and Britain is down the tubes!
It seems that ineptitude and incompetence were not the requisites for high office!
Who’d have thought it!!
Dead as a Duck
They won’t support the vicar’s daughter
Theresa May is dead in the water!
The rabid right with have its way!
On your bike Mrs May!
Unleashing the dogs of Nationalism
Set free the terrors of tribalism.
Cameron and Osbourne put party first
Now the Right for blood does thirst!
They’ve torn the country from bow to stern.
They don’t care and don’t seem to learn.
Mogg and Boris with fight it out!
Power is what it is all about!
Mrs May you chose the wrong way!
Inclusive is best – you threw it away!
Appeasing the nutters was never gonna work!
They made you look like a complete berk!
So Theresa May you’ve had your day!
You’ve thrown the whole country into the fray!
We’re all to hell in a handcart!
Watch as they pull us all apart!
Tory fools what were you thinking?
What mad potions have you been drinking?
It was ideology over common sense!
We’ll all be paying in a lot more than pence!
So long Theresa May!
I can hear the dogs bay.
They’re coming to rip
They’re coming to tear
Mrs May – you’d better beware!
What have you done?
What have you all done?
While you’ve been having fun.
The EU was the Achilles heel.
On our future it’s put the seal!
Rosy spectacles and outdated views
Destroying Britain so we all lose.
Opher – 15.11.2018
While this made me laugh it is tragic!!
The far-right is setting the agenda.
The wave of populist propaganda is dividing the world!
From the obnoxious merchant banker Farage to the Neo-Nazis, all over Europe – the far-right spreads its hate, fear and division.
It’s time we promoted peace, understanding, tolerance, compassion, unity and togetherness!!
A while back I could talk to people who had different views in an intelligent manner. We could even find common ground and at least understand each other without coming to blows. There was respect. Apart from a couple of more extreme morons there was a community on the web. I even made friends with people who were of a different persuasion.
That has changed radically.
Every issue has now been politicised.
People who were friendly are now hostile. There have been many posts peppered with abuse. There are two camps who will not interact under any circumstances. If someone is in the ‘other’ camp their articles are not even going to be considered. Instead they are met with a knee-jerk stream of rubbish that doesn’t even bother to pertain to the issue at hand.
Now abuse is not the province of a few loonies – it’s mainstream.
What has caused this division and intolerance?
What has empowered the more extreme and pushed the moderate to become extreme?
In the UK it is Brexit that has brought out the racists, fascists and violence out onto the streets which in turn elicited a counter response of extreme antifascists.
In the US it is Trump that has had the same effect.
So what does it take to get back to the more pleasant environment we once had? How do extremists of both sides begin to moderate their views?
Well for two and a half years now we have had to put up with May and the extreme right wing telling us what Brexit means. They acted as if they could peer into the minds of every one of the 17 million Brexit voters and know exactly why they voted as they did.
They are in no doubt. Brexit means Brexit.
Their view of Brexit means the most extreme form.
They ignore the views of half the population and assume the other half think like them.
THEY ARE WRONG!!
People had all sorts of reasons for voting Brexit. Some used it as a protest against austerity. Some wanted to give Cameron a bloody nose. Some wanted sovereignty. Some wanted an end to immigration. Some despised the EU and thought it undemocratic. Some wanted to secure our borders.
BUT THERE WAS NO MAJORITY IN THE COUNTRY FOR ANY ONE THING!!
BREXIT NEVER MEANT BREXIT!
Now, at last, we are seeing that there are many types of Brexit and the MPs are getting a choice.
There is Norway +
and a handful more!
We can stay in the Single Market.
We can stay in the Customs Union.
We can stay in both or neither.
It is quite complex.
If only May had not fawned to the extreme ERG and had not pushed the button we could have discussed these options at length, understood their impact on the country and decided which type of Brexit we wanted.
How stupid is it that we’re finally doing it literally days before we’re meant to be leaving?
Has any leader ever made a bigger cock-up of the whole business. May is a complete imbecile. She really thought she could just steamroller it through.
Whatever the outcome – it is TIME FOR THE PEOPLE TO DECIDE!!
What is the will of the people?
Well poles suggest in excess of 54% in favour of remaining (Double the majority who wanted to leave).
A million people have marched in London to demonstrate their anger at the way this has been handled and to demand an opportunity to vote to either ratify the deal or reject it. While a measly 200 join ex-banker Farage on a march to Leave.
We hear a lot about DEMOCRACY. Democracy is the will of the people. It is quite clear that many people have now realised the damage being done by the referendum vote. They have changed their mind. They think they were duped! 54% want to STAY!
Put an end to this Brexit madness!! Put a stop to the extreme Right running the country!!
Sod the ERG!!
Revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU.
The government repeatedly claims exiting the EU is ‘the will of the people’. We need to put a stop to this claim by proving the strength of public support now, for remaining in the EU. A People’s Vote may not happen – so vote now.

A third of British firms are planning to move abroad.
“Fifth of large UK firms have already moved operations abroad due to Brexit, new survey shows”.
The Hypocrite Rees-Mogg’s company is moving to Ireland directly because of Brexit.
Here’s what the Independent said:
Brexit: Jacob Rees-Mogg defends Ireland move by City firm he co-founded ahead of EU withdrawal
Prominent Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg has defended the move by a City firm that he helped to found to establish an investment fund in Ireland ahead of the UK leaving the European Union.
The Conservative MP faced questions when it emerged that Somerset Capital Management (SCM) had launched a new investment vehicle in Dublin amid concerns about being cut off from European investors.
The irony is that it is going to hit the people in the areas that voted for Brexit. Part of me thinks they deserve it. The people like Rees-Mogg are moving their assets abroad. They are going to make a killing out of it. It’s the working people who will suffer – as usual.
Well – they voted for it. Let them eat bread and water on the dole and relive the Blitz spirit. The shame is that the rest of us are going to have to suffer too!
Sounds good to me. If only there was a hell!!
European Council President Donald Tusk has spoken of a “special place in hell” for “those who promoted Brexit without even a sketch of a plan of how to carry it out safely”.
Too true. Those fools started this process without a clue as to what it was all about, how complex it was and how to go about it!
I’d put Cameron, Osbourne and May in there too!
These idiots promised us that we were going to save huge sums of money, that it was going to be simple and we would solve mass immigration.
They have already cost the country tens of billions. The whole lot of them should be locked up. Tusk is right. They were criminally negligent. They have put the future of the country in grave danger.
They are already responsible for extra years of austerity. If the economy stagnates or dives, ruining the future for our children these fools should be held responsible and locked up!
