No wonder there’s such unemployment – George Osborne has taken all the jobs for himself! He’s the new editor of the Evening Standard, while remaining the MP for Tatton. He has no experience of running a newspaper, and thinks he can fit it all into four mornings a week. Being an MP clearly isn’t demanding enough. He also has his hands full with big business consultancy and trousering many thousands for after dinner speeches. As Chairman of the Northern Powerhouse, I wonder how that fits in with the Southern Powerhouse of the London Evening Standard? If I were Mrs May, I’d tell him there was a conflict of interest and give him the boot. He’s hardly going to be impartial as a Conservative MP on the Standard. He probably drives for Uber in his spare time too. Anyway, thanks for your threat of financial Armageddon and an austerity budget. That’s what made people like me vote Brexit.
Jimmy Krankie lookalike, Nicola Sturgeon, has demanded another referendum about Scotland leaving the union. It’s only 2 1/2 years since the last one. It’s outrageous splitting the UK is discussed before formal discussions have even started on leaving the EU. In the unlikely event that Scotland votes to leave, we can hardly negotiate two exits simultaneously. Can’t you wait two or three years? You’ll have a better idea how things are looking. I think there could be a civil war in Scotland if they vote to leave. Many Scots like being British and would like to stay in the UK. It’s be no means certain the EU would have them either. If they do leave and manage to join the EU, should their economy collapse, it’ll be the EU bailing them out, not us. Get real.
Donald Trump reckons British Intelligence spied on him for Obama. Is this man high on spice? Yes, and MI6 are still spying on him through his TV. Every time he switches on repeats of Downton Abbey, Jim Carter is recording everything he says.
