Bananaman Sides With The Enemy

Today in the news, David Milliband is quoted as siding with the French in the row over migrants flooding across the English Channel with the aide of illegal people smugglers.


Ther former Labour Foreign Secretary, and brother of Ed “Beaker” Milliband blamed Brexit for the problem, sided with the French President, and had a crack Prime Minster & Conservative Party leader Boris Johnson. Continue reading “Bananaman Sides With The Enemy”

FBPE Remoaners Get More Creepy and Weird

I was perusing the Twitter trending stuff a brief while ago, and I spotted this amongst one of them…..

The Liberal Democrats Still Suck

For many years, the Liberal Democrats have had some sort of yellow bird as their logo, much like a Canary, which for many years (since at least the 17th century), has been a popular avian pet to keep in a cage.

The Canary-like logo is perhaps appropriate for them seeing as they also seem to want to keep the British population trapped in a cage, more commonly known as the EU, despite the fact a significant chunk of the British population voted to part company with the EU way back in 2016.


Despite this democratic vote to leave, the Liberal Democrats have been part of the problem of elitist moron politicians throwing a spanner in the works, and have vowed to continue doing so, and therefore must be destroyed like a rabid dog, never to inhabit elected government ever again.

PM of Luxembourg Decides to be an Arse***e

I haven’t had chance to properly read the stories yet, but on Monday (16th Sept) there was due to be a meeting to discuss Brexit or something between British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, and his counterpart from the diminutive European country called Luxembourg.

It would seem that the Luxembourg PM decided to be an arse, and try to set up Boris by hosting a press conference outside in front of hostile protesters who seem to provide credible evidence that the people of Luxembourg have started mating with vegetables.

Still Waiting for Brexit and MayExit

It’s 12th May as I start typing this attempt at a blog post, about 45 days after Britain was supposed to exit the EU either via a Real Brexit WTO “no deal” method or a Lesser Brexit with a deal that’s not really a proper full Brexit from the EU.

Party members do not appear too amused, with 82% of members wanting rid of PM Theresa May and a new party leader put in place according to a poll by the people over at ConservativeHome.

The electorate also seem even less amused than that, with the party losing over 1300 Councillors in the local elections at the start of the month, and things looking not much better in the polling for the upcoming European Elections costing £150million that we shouldn’t be needing to have.

Confidence Vote in May is Finally Here [Updated with Final Results & Reactions]

After much waiting, the confidence vote in British PM Theresa May has finally arrived after letters to Graham Brady to trigger the vote crossed the 48 threshold.

Unfortunately, despite the complete horlicks she’s been making of negotiating brexit, early signs are suggesting she’s going to survive the experience. Continue reading “Confidence Vote in May is Finally Here [Updated with Final Results & Reactions]”

Chequers Plan, Project Fear 2 – May Must Go

Well, that “told you so” moment I had a feeling was gonna happen has finally happened.

Just as I had feelings that turned out pretty accurate that Team Brexit would win the referendum and that Donald Trump would become President as early as when he made the first whisperings of running when it was clear Romney would lose to Obama – I also had feelings that Theresa May would make a pretty lame leader of the Conservative party as a last minute bodge after Mr & Mrs Gove took Boris out of the contest.

With the arrival of the Chequers fake-Brexit plan, and the more recent arrival of “Project Fear 2.0”, she’s going down faster than Wile E. Coyote falling off the edge of a cliff.

The Chequers plan has gone down so badly with Grassroots members that local party bosses are seeing 75-90%+ of members giving it the finger, resigning membership, or can no longer be arsed to campaign for the party due to lack of things to be able to offer that they agree with. Even the chairman of her own local party is against it.

Make British Tax Rules Simple Again – Post Brexit Policies

I distinctly recall that since at least prior to the 2010 General Election, experts were calling for the UK’s Tax Rule Book to be simplified.
There was definitely an article on the Daily Mail Website in September 2011 saying we should rip up the tax rule book and start again, and prior to that in April 2011 the Taxpayer’s Alliance released a video “World’s Fastest Speaker vs the UK Tax Code” to show how ridiculously large it had become at 11,000 pages.
The video seems to have long vanished from the interweb, but the TPA’s Blog post still appears to be there about it, and according to my records by the time the Conservative/LibDem coalition were done with it, the rule book instead of shrinking had increased by another 6000 pages of rules by February 2015.

Therefore as part of the policy review I blogged about earlier, I suggest creating a target of slashing the rule book to 7500 pages by 2025 and 3000 pages by 2030 if we aren’t prepared to take the easier route suggested 7-years ago and just re-write the damn things from scratch with a clean sheet of paper.

Basically, if using motoring references to describe the size of the tax rule book, with the New Labour Government (1997 to 2010) they’d increased from the size of a Ford Focus to the size of a Range Rover.

By the time the coalition government had finished with them, they’d expanded to the size of an armoured personnel carrier.

I’m not sure how bad they’ve gotten since, as I haven’t seen any reports giving an update, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they’d expanded to the size equivalent of an HGV or a Railway Locomotive.

If Britain is to succeed in a post-Brexit world, we need to strive to shrink them back down to the size of a light and nimble Aerial Atom or Caterham Super7 instead of being a lumbering dinosaur with a gammy leg.

Perhaps even take another look at Flat Taxes, maybe?

Bananaman Returns

David Milliband is..... Bananaman

When I got up today, my news feeds and timelines were filled with news of the return of Bananaman, brother of Beaker.

Apparently he’s tag-teamed with a cross-party bunch of has-beens to Remoan about Brexit, so he’s lost none of his old abilities to spout BS.

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 Common Agricultural Policy + Common Fisheries Policy jack-up food bills by £1200 a year.

Our sea fishing industry might regain strength again, as it’s apparently losing £3.5billion a year from having it’s time allowed out + grounds restricted by the Common Fisheries policy.

We’d likely see British businesses grow as EU regulations would be able to be ditched….. that apparently holds us back by around £200billion a year, and there were 100,000 pages of the damn things introduced from 1997 – 2010.

Communities will become safer, as we’d have a way easier time booting out some of the more questionable immigrants we currently have a hell of a job getting shot of (e.g. Eastern European rapists, etc).

The price of non-food goods would also fall, as we’d be able to negotiate foreign trade deals on our own terms, with protection via World Trade Organisation rules….. for which we’d regain a seat at, which we don’t have with EU membership.

Defence would be unaffected as that’s all traditionally done through NATO anyway.
