The dance begins

As ever the meeja think the Brexit talks are a tennis match. Wrong. It’s more like chess. Sacrificing a pawn opens up new possibilities. Remember M Barnier has so many masters to serve, while David Boyo has a clear mandate: to do the best for the UK. While the cynics sneer, he can make concessions and win territory without the serried ranks of Europrats second guessing him. Give it time, friends!

    Labour is of course making hay, suggesting to the left-leaning meeja that the election has left people ‘confused’ about the gubmint’s mandate to negotiate Brexit. The reality is that the sitting gubmint – of any colour – has the result of the referendum and the implications of Article 50 to deal with. No confusion there.

    I agree Janus, and I think that Davis is a very shrewd character, but I think that May missed a trick in not appointing a cross party negotiating team and one that also included Farage. She would have wrong footed all those who mouth the “the British public voted for Brexit and we will respect that decision” platitude while doing their very best to negate it and she would have probably gained a lot of support from all those electors in all parties who voted to leave. Could come back to haunt her I think.

    Akshully I think Ms May will be replaced fairly soon; she represents some bad moves. Meantime whatever the EU spin doctors say, the chess game continues with neither side able to claim any kind of advantage.

    The issue of Brits/EU citizens rights to reside in the EU/UK will be sorted very quickly. A no brainer. The who pays for what issue will soon become an accounting/legal calculation. Then the big biz guns will pressurise both sides to get real about trade.

    The EU issue might finally have done for the Tory Party. Ever since the ‘wets’ knifed Mrs T in the back.

    Nah, can’t agree Jazz. The systems too full of people who are working hard solely to protect their own interests to let the whole thing fail. 🙂

    What boils my blood is the spectacular own goal scored by Theresa May and her advisers which has given an unwarranted platform to every anti-democrat, leftist, remoaner and the raft of fifth columnists who would do our country down. My screen is full of the reelected Vince Cable gloating that there has been a sea-change and the majority who voted ‘leave’ should be ignored, as should the largest party in the House of Commons, and, worse still, nobody has told Heseltine’s nurses that he’s out of bed again and not taking his meds.

    All down to accident and incompetence of course…..?
