Planning for Brexit

Yes, well I’ve just (when I first drafted this blog post in March) seen this excellent piece of forward planning *sarcasm*…… Government Refuses to Plan for #Brexit Despite Poll Lead https://t.co/5pzynhpOlN via @BreitbartNews — ConservativeChitChat (@ConservativeCCh) March 1, 2016 So, let’s try come up with some plans ourselves, shall we? The first thing, based on a Tweet from Daniel Hannan I remember seeing a few months back saying we could knock around 60% off Council Tax. Based on this, I’m thinking maybe phase the cut in by reducing it by around 2 – 5% a year while using the excess to play catch-up on the crapload of Infrastructure repairs &

ConservativeChitChat’s Opinion on Politicians who say Britain can’t thrive outside the EU

Whenever you hear a politician on the TV, Radio or Social Media say that Britain can’t thrive outside the EU… is it just me, or do you also think when they say that, they are basically saying they’re a useless cunt who feels they’re totally incapable of running the United Kingdom without having someone else there to hold their hand, and therefore running for Parliament probably wasn’t the most suitable career choice they could’ve made?

Quickfire list of benefits to Britain Leaving the EU…

Copied from a slightly too late reponse to a Yahoo Answers Question…. The Parliament in Westminster would regain the sovereignty that Gordon Brown signed away via the backdoor, so our elected politicians would get more work to stick their teeth into (instead of mostly rubber-stamping crap foisted on them from Brussels). Council Taxes would fall by around 60% according to Daniel Hannan MEP, as we’d no longer have to fork out £10-14billion a year subscribing to EU membership…… basically every year we’re forking out a sum equivalent to what it cost to build the Channel Tunnel to be part of the EU. Food prices would drop by 17%, as the

Gove’s statement on why he supports Brexit

Statement from Michael Gove MP, Secretary of State for Justice, on the EU Referendum Immediate release, 20 February 2016 For weeks now I have been wrestling with the most difficult decision of my political life. But taking difficult decisions is what politicians are paid to do. No-one is forced to stand for Parliament, no-one is compelled to become a minister. If you take on those roles, which are great privileges, you also take on big responsibilities. I was encouraged to stand for Parliament by David Cameron and he has given me the opportunity to serve in what I believe is a great, reforming Government. I think he is an outstanding

Some of the stuff that ConservativeChitChat Supports (UK Edition)

1) Brexit… Leaving the EU holds the key to being able to do alot of the stuff that many of the stuff I support likely depends on, like keeping proper tabs on immigration. 2) Flat Taxes… they’ve been yapping for too long about simplifying them, how about actually doing it? Introducing Flat Taxes would zap many loopholes, and encourage those with fat wallets to just cough-up what they owe, instead of paying accountants to find ways to wriggle out of paying more than they have to. 3) A £155 per week Minimum Citizens income…. originally touted by the Greens, and branded a bloody stupid idea because it would cost around

Being in the EU costs us 13 Channel Tunnels a year?

This kinda came to me lastnight while surfing around a bit……… The original estimated cost for the Channel Tunnel was around £4.65billion (but actually ended up costing about £9.5billion). Another page I came across suggested it costs the UK £65billion a year to be in the EU. So, we’re effectively being nailed for 13 original cost Channel Tunnels a year to get screwed by the EU?
