The government has said that those from the EU will be welcome to stay in the UK once Britain leaves, except for serious criminals.
Sorry, but this does not go far enough. What is deemed to be a serious offence? Murder? Yes of course. Rape? Yes. Violent acts? Certainly.
But what about those who have committed burglaries and theft? What about persistent petty offenders? Are they to be rewarded with residency?
The rule should be, if you have come to the UK and committed a crime, any crime, then you are not welcome. We’ve got enough home grown villains. We don’t need any more, thank you.
We were all off to vote on our membership of the European Union, and thankfully we made the decision to get out.
Sadly, it took nine months to tell the EU, and in that time there’s been a serious amount of opposition to us leaving. Even now there’s still a risk that Brexit might not happen. David Cameron, the then PM, lost his nerve and resigned. His replacement, Theresa May dithered.
But anyway, happy independence day to all!
The British government and the EU have finally commenced Brexit talks today in Brussels, each side having firm red lines. It is the beginning of the end of our EU membership.
Our red lines should include: no extortionate exit payments, out of the single market and customs union, full control of our territorial waters up to the maximum allowed, the deportation of any EU citizen that has committed crimes while in the UK, taking Gibraltar off the table, and no jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice on British affairs.
It’s going to be tough, but I think David Davis will do fine. No backsliding, David.
Little Timmy Farron has decided to pack in the job of Lib Dems party leader. He says it would be impossible for him to continue as leader and remain faithful to Jesus Christ.
Can’t say I’m surprised. He grappled with supporting things he wasn’t too keen on, like gay sex and marriage.
I’m glad he’s gone because he’s one of the biggest remoaners out there, and his leadership during the last election was abysmal. The only thing he banged on about was Brexit.
I’ve been reading on Twitter that apparently, young people have no idea who the IRA is, and in their ignorance, have no idea of their terror campaigns.
They believe that Sinn Fein is a respectable political party who campaign for a united Ireland. What they don’t realise is that Sinn Fein is the political wing of the IRA, the terrorist group that bombed innocent people such as those at Enniskillen in 1987 and many other places, and forced the IRA/Sinn Fein into peace talks.
These are the same people that the hero of the left, Jeremy Corbyn, hangs around with. He’s a known sympathiser of their cause.
And these silly young people wanted this man to be prime minister of our country? These young lefties have no idea and have been swayed by the freebies that Corbyn offered in return for their support.
Don’t know about anyone else, but I’m glad Jeremy Corbyn failed in his bid to become Prime Minister on Thursday.
The essence of Corbynomics is buy-now-pay-later politics. And who would pay? The very youngsters who tried to put him in power. They wouldn’t pay now of course. That comes much later when it’s time to pay the bills. When Corbyn has long shuffled off this mortal coil and today’s trendy lefties are heading towards old age. That’s who would pay, and quite right too.
After all, it’s what they voted for.
Theresa May really doesn’t know when to stop digging when she’s in a hole. After her two chiefs of staff, Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill resign in disgrace, she then appoints someone who has never had a proper job, has spent most of his life working for the Tories, and is a rabid remainiac. Meet Gavin Barwell.
Barwell, who lost his seat in Croydon Central on Thursday, has been appointed May’s advisor, and she believes him to be the man to turn her political fortunes around. Wrong. As the country tries to steer its way out of the EU, why appoint a remainiac? Insanity.
But then, Theresa May isn’t known for wise decisions, as she proved by calling an election she didn’t need to, and approving a manifesto that punished both young and old in Britain.
The sooner she resigns, the better. The Tories need real Tories in charge, and people who believe in Brexit, not two failed politicians like May and Barwell.
The way the Labour party is carrying on today you’d be forgiven for thinking they won the election, they didn’t. They were far short of a majority, yet Jeremy Corbyn is telling the world he won. He thinks he should be leading a majority government.
Deluded as ever.
