Boris Johnson Prime Minister


Recommended Posts

If you were planning to train a virus to escape vaccine induced immunity

If you were negotiating an agreement that you never intended to honour

If you were arranging PPE in a way that would be inefficient and expensive

If you were designing a VISA system to fail

 

.. you would do it the way Johnson the incompetent liar and his oppos do

 

and add to that that there is currently plenty of pfiser vaccine for boosters and jabs, and plenty of people willing to have them

- but nowhere near enough people to actually put the doses in arms as all the volunteers (trained cabin staff etc) who did it before have gone back to work ...

I see Johnson/Truss have signed a deal with NZ similar to the Australia deal

- so 6x better for NZ than it is for the UK, just to get a headline, with further nails in the coffin of UK farming then ...

It's just PR, isn't it, TJ? Their own figures say that at best it will add 0.01% to growth and at worst will cost money.

 

One journo thinks it's because it might help them to get into the Trans Pacific trade agreement [why?] but if they start breaking international law, I don't see NZ standing by them.

Boris Johnson Is Playing Another Trick

"Countries across the world, Britain foremost among them, are willfully pursuing an economic strategy that is heating up the planet, to the devastation of communities everywhere. They prefer private profit to a livable planet."

 

"Cambo is the most egregious example of a political and economic approach that knocks Britain off its moral high ground. The list of sins is long. It includes airport expansions, missed biodiversity targets, a botched attempt to insulate homes, not ruling out a new coal mine in Cumbria and, of course, failing to regulate the world’s biggest financiers of fossil fuels in the City of London. At every juncture the government has made clear where its priorities really lie."

Britain’s prime minister claims the country is leading the world on climate change. It’s not.

and for those who might think Tory **** voting to leave British kids hungry was a 'one off'

- It may have been the worst - but its nothing unusual.

 

Here they are voting to BLOCK a simple requirement for water companies NOT to dump sewage in UK waters to save their profits

- something I'll bet most thought was already a requirement.

 

"Just 22 Conservatives rebelled against the government last week to vote in favour of a bill amendment that would place a legal duty on water companies not to pump sewage into rivers."

 

Think about that when you are paddling in the sea on a British beach .. or eating British shellfish.

and although Johnsonites have 'crapped themselves' over a rebellion they still only propose to 'require' some unqualified endeavors from water companies to reduce the sewage being repeatedly poured into UK waters

 

Johnson says customers would have to pay thousands each for these companies to improve

EH? - what about share holder and director dividends paying? - they've had enough payments for not meeting requirements

I don't know enough about the detail on the France/UK fishing dispute to express a view, but it's a bit rich for David Frost to start throwing around accusations of not abiding by the WCA and breaking international law.

neither will the main tax beneficiaries of rich business people flying across the UK drinking cheaper spirits and bolli to 'meetings'/jollies rather than being climate, cost and efficiency competent and having meetings via video,

mind you with the projected increases in train fares, it will probably cost little more to fly than train, but still craploads of everything more expensive/costly than video conferencing.

Well, cop is already an unmitigated failure, but that was always likely given the host (Johnson the deal reneging liar) asking others to do more while proposing he will

* Increasing oil production (in Scottish waters)

* Not only allowing, but protecting water companies pouring sewage endlessly into UK waters

* reneging on local trade while proposing very poor deals thousands of miles away with heavily climate polluting counties

* Reducing rather than increasing taxation on the most polluting, climate destroying short hop plane journeys (take off, short trip and landing is worst)

* reducing overseas aid

* stealing already promised foreign aide (despite that being prohibited in the agreement) to 'promise' (from Johnson the Liar) sometime in the future maybe a return to maybe future overseas aide to address climate issues - with loads of get out clauses added

* ad nauseum

 

also add Johnsons further protection of polluters

dangerous stuff

Global warming is pretty much certain to pass 1.5 degrees well within the next 5 years, let alone 2030 .. or 2050

and sea level rise is also certain to break records in the same period

 

No doubt some will claim 'temporary' - but as emissions are still set to actually increase during that period .. it will actually be temporarily only in passing through 1.5 degrees of warming, and quite possibly the climatic tipping point, to higher average temperatures and world as different as the changes at the 'end' of the ice age 12,000 years ago.

Hopefully it wont be to a runaway greenhouse effect - I dont know about that one way or the other.

Katya Adler of the Beeb has posted some interesting tweets in the last couple of days.

 

On fishing, she's explained that some of the media [including the BBC and ITV] have been using an incorrect translation of what the French PM said. And on the NIP, people in Brussels are convinced that David Frost is playing for time with the negotiations so that Article 16 can be triggered after COP26.

All quite possible HB

and re the 'legal action' that should tie any possible resolution process up for a considerable period which should suit Johnson and Frost

 

The only paper that Johnson and Frosts words should be on is many times recycled toilet paper

- and that quickly and quietly flushed away before the smears they carry pollute the planet even more

 

I'm somewhat unclear why France is simply not 'imposing the agreement to its interpret-able  letter (no matter how stretched) until the distant future where it might eventually be proven thats not compatible with the law' as Johnson and Frost are doing

- got to be French elections involved there

- maybe good for Macrons image, but not for real effect

Well I'm sure that both sides are playing to their political audiences. But the French also believe the UK should carry out its legal obligations over fishing, borders and so on.

 

I think it was Katya who said that some in Europe think the UK should be held to account for not having IT systems or infrastructure for borders, for example.

as do I

 

That 'sovereignty' and 'protecting our borders' was sold so heavily, yet despite a couple of years to implement things which should have been 'ready to go' the moment leave was triggered STILL aren't in place ...

NI should have been and should be a simple admin process 90%+ of which was already there

 

I would simply apply the rules as they were agreed - to the letter - as only partially doing that has Johnson and Frost screaming

 

Imagine the court case

Frost: They are being mean - they wont give us our cake and eat it and want us to implement what we signed. and We've only had about 5 years to start doing things - nowhere near long enough and just because we haven't done the things we should have done long ago shouldn't mean its our fault and we need to resolve sovereign issues

 

Court: Case found against the poopulists

 

 

Frost: WHAT - isnt that judge one of our cronies - why not. Anyway, I'm an unelected glorified spad so i can over-rule any court of law or international agreement

The FT is saying that HMG is looking for new external lawyers to advise on overhauling NI trading arrangements post-Brexit.

 

Sir Jonathan Jones, who resigned over the possible 'limited and speciifc' breaking of international law is quoted as saying that it could indicate they aren't happy with current advice and are looking for advisers who favour of triggering Article 16 with a view to rewriting the Brexit agreement.

Current lawyers and scientific advisors

But mr Frost thats a breach of both the agreement and international law ..

But mr Johnson, we are advising masks must be mandatory, and schools must have better ventilation

 

Frost and Johnson:

You're sacked, get me someone who knows what I want to hear and who I can point the finger at when its shown to be wrong

 

 

 

 

... and it seems Jersey has agreed to some more of the French boats having licenses

I think Johnson has realised that France doing even a bit of a Johnson and carrying on doing it until courts and appeals a loooooong time in the future might decide otherwise ... goes both ways - and that Johnson and his oppos doesnt even have the upper hand there - just less morals

- reciprocity
