REFLECTION: IN JANUARY 2022 - Masterminds, Boris and Rishi, halved the value of pensioner's savings with their fatally flawed grasp on Brexit, getting voted in by a big red campaign bus promising £350 million for the NHS in large white lettering, but that was a massive deception that narrowly missed Bojo being prosecuted for fraud. After claiming we could have our EU cake and eat it, and a gullible electorate believing him! Now dear Rishi is raiding the ordinary man's piggy bank, so that his children might not benefit from inheritance - and it only took him all his life to accumulate. Presumably, dumb & dumber studied Colonial accounting and rule. But we don't have an Empire anymore to underpin the excesses or crass policies. Bojo can't sack Rishi, cos he bankrupt the nation with his poppycock, and needs the cash from your savings for more wallpapering during lockdown. Though he's snake-charmed Her Majesty with a parliament prorogue, sufficiently that she didn't sack him. Why not? Well, at that level, without a Written Constitution and the Justice System infested with honours and secret society influence, he is above the law - because there is no law in what is effectively a police state - if you report crime and then get slammed with stalking Orders of other SLAPP action for your trouble. Especially banking of planning fraud. Then are are for it my lad! They don't want the public to know about the bigger picture. You just keep watching the BBC and ITV, for your regular whitewashed news drip feed.
With Prince Charles' charity under investigation, Prince Andrew keeping a low profile, and Harry & Megan departing the sinking ship in 2021, British Citizens really need a shakeup constitutionally. There simply are not enough (competent) Royals to make important decisions - hence giving the likes of Boris the Johnson - free reign. The best of a bad bunch? There has got to be better than the MP for Uxbridge & South Ruislip.
By all accounts through 2020 and 2021, the policies of what he is now referred to internationally as "The Clown of Europe," have not worked, as there was no steerage just reaction to one crisis after another. This, despite a cabinet reshuffle, to try and weed out the non-performers. The political cling-ons that are just along for the ride. Bojo has turned Britain into the laughing stock of the world, as they watch his buffoonery - and are not amused. But he has damaged the savings and pensions of his voters, with rampant inflation, driving higher prices in the shops - and now shortages of just about everything. Causing the prices to rise again, and so their money is worth less.
The cure? Difficult! The Conservatives have made such a mess for so long that any party coming in to sort it out, will have one heck of a job. Brexit is one of the underlying causes. An opportunity for Bojo to get elected, but not in reality so good for the country. However, Europe is having more problems, without a British voice in the mix to secure our interests.
Boris is famous in other departments for his numerous affairs, any one of which would have demanded a resignation, but for which he seemed to be rewarded for his alleged fornications. An incredible situation, the Americans would be envious of, where they'd probably relish a free hall pass in that department.
The former Mayor of London kept his job at the Foreign Office after the election. Despite hints from some of the newspapers that Boris Johnson, 52, seeks the top job, he has categorically dismissed such claims - but then made a play for premiership when Theresa May was on the ropes, finally being voted Prime Minister amidst the Brexit fiasco.
In the wake of June's shock election result, Mr Johnson said that while the public would be wondering about the future of the current government, Mrs May had got the biggest Conservative mandate anyone had achieved for decades.
Boris is quoted as saying: "I'm going to be backing her, and absolutely everybody I'm talking to is going to be backing her as well.
What we would like to know is where Mr Johnson stands on homelessness, affordable housing and climate change. As the former mayor of our capital that is congested beyond belief and smog laden at times, of all people, Boris should know that air quality is dependent on efficient transport networks. How about charging points for electric vehicles. What is the score on those?
FOSSIL FOOLS - Geriatric politicians with 'climate-senile' policies will find in difficult to break away from their corrupt ways, as part time politicians with two jobs. Their main job being to find paid consultancy work, rather than craft policies and create statute that works to protect our voters from lung cancer, energy shortages and a lack of affordable (sustainable) housing.
The 'zerophobics' are the undertakers of the political world, sending millions of ordinary people to an early grave, while loading us with NHS, hospital and staff costs that would not be needed if we had clean air in our cities.
Basically, the longer you are in politics, the more likely you are to be exposed to bribes, from climate deniers, mostly fossil fuel and energy companies, looking to keep on pumping toxic fumes into the atmosphere, so they can keep making money. The political undertakers are working with them to keep hospitals stocked with cancer victims. They are blood sucking vampires, draining what little you had saved for your retirement.
to plans to re-float the Royal Yacht Britannia, what about the pollution
from the old gal? She's already steamed a million miles using her two Pametrada steam
turbines that develop 12,000 hp (8,900 kW) for a speed of 21.5 knots (39.8 km/h; 24.7 mph)
and a range per fill up of 2,400 nautical miles (4,400 km). Britannia
burns heavy diesel oil to fire her drum water tube boilers that were
built by Foster Wheeler. Bunker
fuel is stored in her 510,000 gallon fuel tanks, meaning that she
uses 212.5 gallons per nautical mile. This would equate to 231,119,887
million gallons of diesel was released into the atmosphere as greenhouse
gases to fuel global
warming, just to host a few business meetings and royal weddings.
Wow! Who are the climate criminals? It would be madness to allow that
sort of pollution
to continue, and please note that these are ballpark estimates based on
very sparse technical details about Britannia (that may not be
accurate). Perhaps then, Boris and his patriotic investors may want to
put that in their pipe (dreams) and smoke it. Read more on Chris

THE SUN 16 SEPTEMBER 2016 - BREXIT MEANS BRITANNIA Tories want Royal Yacht to rule the waves again and drum up post-Brexit trade as a floating embassy

“Britannia is a great symbol of global Britain.”
DAILY MAIL 16 SEPTEMBER 2016
Boris calls for return of Royal Yacht Britannia as floating embassy to drum up billions of pounds of post-Brexit global trade deals.
CONSERVATIVE MPS 2017-2018
CONSERVATIVE CLIMATE - Michael Gove has been summoned to Brussels because of his party's failure to meet air pollution targets despite warnings about which the Prime Minister was aware of. What about plastic Mr Gove. What is Mr Johnson doing about that?
The United Kingdom has many political parties, some of which are represented in the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Below are links to the websites of the political parties that were represented in the House of Commons after the 2015 General Election:
DEMOCRAT UNIONIST PARTY
SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC AND LABOUR PARTY
ULSTER UNIONIST PARTY
We are concerned with how the make up of the above parties and (reasonably) popular policies may affect the Wealden district, because we are all brothers on two islands in the Atlantic Ocean and what we do or fail to do is likely to rebound on ourselves and our fellow man in other nations around the world. How we act today influences policies in other countries in our global community. It is not just about us and our patch.
East Sussex has five District and Borough Councils, each with a border on the coast. From west to east they are:
There is also East Sussex County Council as the provider of services to the 5 East Sussex districts.
As near neighbours and with councils now sharing facilities and working together, these area of Sussex are included in our remit and an area where climate change and affordable housing are issues that need urgent attention. Where the coastline is a feature in every Council, Blue Growth is a food security issue, especially where this side of of our local economy is under-exploited.
