Boris Johnson Prime Minister


Recommended Posts

German journalist Annette Dittert, who's based in London, has a new article in the New Statesman with her take on the UK situation at the moment.

 

WWW.NEWSTATESMAN.COM

By upholding the taboo over the costs of Brexit, Labour is enabling Boris Johnson’s fantasy excuses.

At some stage UK Government will realise that the economy needs more migrant labour than they ideally wanted to satisfy some Brexit supporters. 

 

It is not a case of UK citizens not wanting to do some types of work e.g. farming.  I have come across many young people wanting to pursue jobs in farming, but they live in towns and cities, without their own vehicles to commute to remote farms. If Government wants young people to go into farming, they need to build affordable accommodation to rent close to where the farms are. Or they provide transport options for people living in towns/cities to commute to farms.

 

Government will come to realise that providing all of the resources required to have UK citizens taking up all of the jobs required by UK employers, would be a very expensive investment to make.  And more importantly, businesses may not have the newly trained people available to them, when they actually need them.

Not even that HB ..Not even that

 

Johnson tells business leaders that the solution to the problems caused by Johnsons Brexit and Johnsons lack of notification and mechanisms

... is their problem not his.

 

WWW.INDEPENDENT.CO.UK

Prime minister rejects pleas for visas to stock festive shelves – insisting that the ‘government can’t step in and fix the supply chain’

 

 

Business leaders: PM - we need clarity on what we need to do for the Brexit deal you haven't kept us informed on, and need to know how any mechanisms for international supply and trade might work?

 

Johnson the incompetent Liar: I've told you - 'get ready for Brexit'

 

Business leaders: All the benefits, none of the costs and no threats to our place in the single market it is then. We are ready.

Adding a quote from the Times.

 

Chris Loder, the MP for West Dorset, told a separate fringe event that the disruption was an “opportunity” to destroy supermarket supply chains as they were “commercial predators”.

 

Very Dominic Cummings, wreck everything but we don't know what to replace it with and don't have a plan except to let the market sort it out.

 

This is the genius who wants farmers to deliver produce to their local area. How quaint.

Breaking News

 

There is an entirely unconfirmed rumor that Johnson and Shapps (The Liars) are preparing to announce that the Australia deal includes the solution to our lorry driver shortage with immediate visas for 10 Australian lorry drivers and their trucks

the announcement is expected as soon as they can find a boat big enough to bring them, and after a few 'minor' changes to every major road and junction in the UK

 

 

 

 

It is expected that 45598 villages, 2745 towns and 23 major cities will also be 'redesigned' to accommodate the solution, which will partly affect the Uk's plans to reach net zero in the 25th century after warp drive, instant matter transportation and anti-matter engines are developed.

 

 

UPDATE

Australian truckers head to interviews

anyone seen the 'report' from the Brex-press that 3 Labour Mp's (apparently Corbynistas) are considering moving to Johnsons populists as Starmer isn't left wing enough ...

 

LOL

Well, I suppose I said its hard to tell the difference between many of the far left and many of the far right

... but I still doubt it

Be interesting if they do though

To sunak, who says Labour keeps losing elections because the “British people won’t trust a party that isn’t serious with their money”.

 

All I can say is serco + PPE pals and taxpayer billions?

 

 

and Johnson 'The Liar' says

UK electricity to be powered by clean energy sources from 2035

but don't fret - its up to someone else to actually deliver - not his problem if nowts done - like the driver, delivery, fuel and shelf shortages at point of delivery

 

His detailed plan for delivery of clean energy:

"From 2030, you won’t be able to buy any more a new hydrocarbon-fuelled internal combustion engine car and we’re going to move either to EVs (electric vehicles) or vehicles powered by hydrogen or clean power of one kind or another.

- Unstated but implied: as long as someone else does it.

As 'activist' equity group expected to try to have SSE splitup to give 'value to shareholders' rather than the assets invested in clean energy. - aka asset stripped?

Maybe we're looking at this all wrong and there is a master plan -

 

Food shortages and subsequent price rises will solve the obesity crisis.

Fuel shortages and subsequent price rises will curtail all social interaction as the unwashed masses will only be able to undertake linited journeys to work.  Effectively another lockdown so Covid solved.

Essential utilities such as gas and electricity are set to become unaffordable which will have a positive effect on the social care bill as the aged and vulnerable freeze to death.

 

Those of us who survive the coming winter can come out of our homes next Spring blinking in the sunlight just like all the best disaster movies - and Boris will call it a success and take the credit.

and unlike yapping useless frost and lying incompetent Johnson, I have no doubts whatsoever that France will deliver on their assurances

 

 

WWW.INDEPENDENT.CO.UK

French minister says UK ‘depends on our energy supplies’ as row escalates

 

 

wahhh - They are bulling us after we threatened them says the brexit BS press

 

France says:

"For example, we can imagine, since we're talking about energy, ... the United Kingdom depends on our energy supplies. It thinks that it can live all alone, and bash Europe."

 

According to the latest UK government statistics France exported a net 8,700 gigawatt hours of energy to Britain in 2020.

The warning by France comes as Britain is set to enter what ministers have called a “difficult winter” – with soaring energy prices and shortages of some products including fuel.

James O'Brien on LBC explains why some of us might have been a bit confused recently about government messaging. It's a great analysis IMHO.

 

"Everybody who warned Project Fear was going to happen was shouted down by the people now in power. "Before your very eyes the Government are saying the predictions were right - and it was part of our plan.

but as pointed out in one of the comments (seemingly in reference to the 'policing bill' making demonstrations a crime at the whim of government:

 

 
I'm beginning to suspect that the Govt knows there will be a lot of unrest and reasons to trigger Demonstrations this winter and so instead of tackling the root cause, they will seek to stifle them through legislation. #Winterofdiscontent
