The Boris Brexiteers appearing at your Parliament now
We now have Brexit Boris and his cartoon cabinet. A Right wing cabinet of Brexiteers with a Home Secretary who supports the return of the death penalty and a foreign secretary who, as Brexit Secretary didn’t understand the importance of the channel tunnel.
Priti Patel and Dominic Raab. Gove, Javid. And the others – not least Jacob Rees-Mogg! How barren of talent do we need to be if Jacob Rees-Mogg is the Leader of the house?
This is a cabinet to deliver Brexit by deal or no deal. It’s is reported that all appointees have had to commit to a no deal Brexit in order to secure their posts. They have all put their careers before their country.
Even those of us who suffered through the Thatcher years have never seen anything quite like this cabinet of crap. Regardless of their policies the political heavyweights at the time looked, sounded and behaved like political heavyweights in the main (David Mellor and his Chelsea kit notwithstanding). They had a level of integrity and honesty which this lot can’t even imagine and we thought they were the worst. How wrong we were!
There are reports that this is a cabinet prepared to fight a general election in September. It will be interesting to see what difference the polls show in support for Brexit Boris and his cabinet of creeps, charlatans and connivers. It is being said that this cabinet will pull voters back to the Tories in droves!
We shall see.
Meanwhile, in Scotland NS has written to BJ to demand an independence referendum. We currently have a government we didn’t vote for, a PM we didn’t vote for determined to implement Brexit – which we did not vote for.
The SG has also announced that all universities in Scotland have agreed a way to guarantee care experienced young people a place at university of they meet minimum standards. This is a transformational policy which recognised the impact the care system can have on education. More support for the most vulnerable in our society.
Imagine how transformational we could be with independence. Then consider that we have to ask Boris Johnson and a cabinet that includes Jacob Rees-Mogg for permission to deliver many of the policies we want to implement to improve lives and our economy.
