PM May should have listened to Trump

BBC reported on July 15, "Donald Trump told Theresa May she should sue the EU rather than negotiate over Brexit.

"The US president said on Friday at a joint news conference he had given Mrs May a suggestion -- but she had found it too 'brutal.'

"Asked by the BBC's Andrew Marr what he had said, she replied: "He told me I should sue the EU -- not go into negotiations.'

"It came as another government member resigned over her Brexit plans..."

Now 8 months later her cabinet is staging a coup to force her to resign over Brexit. This is what happens when you ignore the advice of the author of "The Art of the Deal."

And Great Britain should have cashiered her two years ago for incompetence in handling the Brexit. 

Voters overwhelmingly voted to leave the European Union. May ignored the will of the voters because she likes letting Brussels make decisions for her. Most the European PMs and presidents do. They are passive-aggressive socialists. 

Trump said on March 14, “I’m surprised at how badly it’s all gone from the standpoint of a negotiation. I gave the prime minister my ideas on how to negotiate it and I think you would have been successful.

“She didn’t listen to that and that’s fine – she’s got to do what she’s got to do. I think it could have been negotiated in a different manner, frankly. I hate to see everything being ripped apart now.”

Britain should just leave the EU, and become a nation again.

If the next prime minister won't, they should find one who will

  1. There's widespread speculation that U.K. Intel services, along with perhaps NZ and Australia were hip deep in the Russian Collusion scam.
    Could be a factor. They want to live in a dream world and resent Deplorable world outlook, clear eyed realism.

    1. It's a fact that some "allies" asked Trump not to declassify the documents before the election. The bigger question, beyond which allies were asking, is how did they know what was in the classified material??!!!

      "Published 11:44 a.m. ET Sept. 21, 2018
      Reversing course, President Donald Trump delayed the release of classified FBI documents on Friday after the Justice Department and foreign allies objected amid concerns that their publication may damage the investigation of Russian election interference."

    2. NZ hasn't been a good ally for some time now. At least back as far as 1985 when they denied port facilities to US Navy ships over nuclear weapons.

  2. I've been reading Revolt of the Elites and Madame de Stael's memoirs of the French revolution simultaneously and one thing both have in common is a view of elites as having little loyalty to either their nation of origin or the people of that nation, but to other elites like themselves, regardless of where they come from. De Stael makes clear that this is an acquired taste that is sometimes penetrated by more primitive and pure emotions as illustrated by James II watching the English defeat the French navy that was trying to reinstate him exclaiming, "look at how my English fight."

    Tamping down the ties of locality and familiarity these elites substitute these for abstract intentions of international comity while destroying comity at home, while acquiring, at the same time a violent contempt for their fellow countrymen. All one need do is observe the Giles Jaunes protests in France being sky bombed with tear gas under the orders of Macron, and the spate of stabbings under the Muslim mayor of London, obviously facilitated to keep the people cowed.

    Their arrogance knows no bounds, but it does have an end, as we have seen many times before in history. They would have been smart to at least compromise with their peoples and share power. That they did not is on their heads, which they will ultimately be lucky to keep.

    1. Theresa no doubt hopes that the mob with the "May for P.M." placards don't mean it in the medical autopsy sense.

    2. "but to other elites like themselves, regardless of where they come from" Sounds like the daily "DC cocktail-party" circuit.

  3. I don't care whether the Brits leave the EU. Eventually it will collapse because the tax requirements to keep the EU government afloat on top of the individual country governments are usurious.

    1. The sooner they leave, the faster it collapses. Good for the world.

  4. Just imagine.

    Instead of a europe of various countries, nations, etc., a europe of Sovereign States, United under the Constitutional Republic exactly as we are.

    Same, exact structure of 3 Branches of government.

    Same, exact Bill of Rights.

    Same, exact specifications of Legislative structure of Senate, House of Representatives, and all Constitutinal powers and duties.

    Ditto Judicial and Executive Branches.

    Exactly the same.

    For the entirety of Europe as it is defined today.

    With the open options of joining the Constitutional Republic of Sovereign States of Europe extended on a region by region basis. To those who meet the requirements of being a Sovereign State of the Constitutional Republic as we do.

    Imagine this, instead of the fraud and grafting cabal of this absurdity called the europeon union.

    Yeah, it would be a clusterfuck. Since the coutries/nations of europe are packed full of both native born tribalism lunatics, greedy elitist hogs, invading migrants, conquest obessessed muslims, and every other form of weak, feeble minded human species devoid of the true yearning to make the lands of their own births free and prosperous as the Constitutional Republic of Sovereign States United, aka, America.

    Just imagine anyway.

  5. Said this elsewhere. Here's how to destroy the EU. If they are a single unified nation, give them one team in the World Cup and let the soccer hooligans do the dirty work.

  7. To be fair, I would suggest two more selections in the "Reactions menu" to get a better feel for what people think. "Wrong" and, my choice for this article "Accurate facts and opinion".

  8. The U.K. has devolved into a nation of [insert name of body part male celebrities are allowed to grab]. P.M. Theresa May and London Mayor Sadiq Khan are who and what the Brits deserve.

    We made the right call in 1776 and, at this point, I don't really care whether the Brits and the whole continent of Europe choose suicide by cyanide, or suicide by swilling arsenic.

  9. I got to the UK every year and have friends there. I'm also for Brexit as are they. But socialism has poisoned their body politic and as far as I can tell it's effects are not reversible, even though the Brexit vote was a kind of last spasm of pride in the empire feelings. The vote Don reports was not overwhelming. The pro Exit vote was not even 4% higher than remain. By his standard Hillary was "overwhelmingly" chosen president. The close vote mirrored our own with the leftist parts on their nation like Scotland Ireland and London voting to stay slaves to the Germans and the rest of the English land mass voting to leave. May and her colleagues are just like our Rinos, working both sides of the isle for their own very rich masters, more of whom move to Monaco every week to avoid taxes. The Brits will have to decide if they truly wantthe Germans as rulers. They resisted before and bravely. Now they have been enervated by the socialist multicultural virus created in their own British Museum in the 1850s. Will they fight back once again? Maybe not. We have Trump and they have May for a reason. I hope we keep him for as long as possible and God bless them but it is hard to care anymore.

  10. The Brits should just stop giving the EU any money, stop enforcing EU regulations. Continue accepting Free Trade from the EU; and start also accepting it from the USA and other non-EU places.
    A soft-hard Brexit.
