Blond NYC native making Brexit happen



I was going to include this in tomorrow's "Highlights of the News," but I like to share good news as soon as possible.

The BBC reported, "Parliament will be suspended just days after MPs return to work in September and only a few weeks before the Brexit deadline.

"Boris Johnson said a Queen's Speech would take place after the suspension, on 14 October, to outline his 'very exciting agenda.'

"But it means the time MPs have to pass laws to stop a no-deal Brexit on 31 October would be cut. House of Commons Speaker John Bercow said it was a constitutional outrage."

Fox News later reported, "Queen approves Boris Johnson's request to suspend Parliament."

Soon-To-Be-Great-Again Britain learned electing a blond native of New York City is the best way to kick the establishment in the fanny.

Yes, Johnson was born in the USA. Oh, he is British elitist as anyone. He did Eton and Oxford. He often is as serious as Benny Hill.

But he is getting the job done.

That the queen suspended Parliament shows she supports a Brexit of the European Union on Johnson's terms.

Fox News reported, "Nigel Farage, leader of the Brexit party, said the move would make a no-confidence motion in Johnson certain, adding that 'a general election is more likely and is seen as a positive move by Brexiteers.'"

That other blond New York City native head of state tweeted, "Would be very hard for Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of Britain’s Labour Party, to seek a no-confidence vote against New Prime Minister Boris Johnson, especially in light of the fact that Boris is exactly what the U.K. has been looking for, & will prove to be 'a great one!' Love U.K."

Fox News reported, "A no-deal Brexit would see the return of border checks and tariffs on trade between Britain and the rest of the EU, its largest trading partner."

But President Donald John Trump and Johnson appear to have a trade deal ready to go once Britain exits the EU on Halloween. World Trade Organization membership also should keep the trade going.

Exports do account for 30% of the British economy, so there is a rein on British independence.

But European Union membership is no longer acceptable and it must leave. Maybe Britain can replace Red China as a supplier of goods to the USA.

We shall see, but one thing we know. Brash New Yorkers get stuff done.

    2. My favorite picture of Liz is from WWII, in her uniform changing the tire on a jeep. I have a good deal of respect for her. Her family on the other hand is a mess.

    1. Agreed. I think there's a lot going on in Queenie's mind most people have no idea about. I think she might have stepped down sometime back (at least after she passed the length of Victoria's reign) if Charles hadn't been such a schmuck.

    3. That is a great photo of Queen Elizabeth; that pic wasn't a photo-op to show her in a good light (unlike a certain Beta O'Rourke,) she actually did the work. She also drove ambulances!

  4. The Queen knows EXACTLY how dangerous the EU is with the Germans dictating terms. And if you agree that it is dangerous now, just wait until all those Muslims Frau Merkel imported gain political power. The U.K. is right to get out, and the other small countries should, too.

  5. Not sure about BoJo - Nigel is suspicious of him - really he REALLY do the hard Brexit & go WTO, or is he really wanting to do a deal with the EU weanies - he has asked for him to pull the backstop on Ireland and he might try and resubmit the 'warmed over' deal Elizabeth May 'negotiated'. Real suspicion he'll sell out England to this agreement that will keep England under control of EU for 5-10 years. I am rooting that Boris really does want to be as big as Churchill and Trump will make England proud, or will BoJo sell'em out, like so many US weasels have done ever sincg Reagan....

  7. If anything it probably helps with the chances of a last minute deal getting made. I always felt that with May in charge EU knew she would never leave without a deal and had no reason to compromise.

    If Boris makes it so that no deal will happen (with parliament blocked from stopping it) if they don't compromise, far more chance of them deciding to.

      So it can be rejected.

    2. I'm guessing putin would put up with you for tete time before having you swatted.

      rudeness is a weak person's idea of strength.

      and I hope you take that in the spirit it was offered.

      personally.

      I think don deserves a lot of credit for putting up with your childish strings of logical fallacies.

      in fact, all evidence is you suffer from phallusy fixation.

      you may take that personal as well.

    3. Putin Putin Putin!

  9. Regarding imports from the UK, I was surprised when I bought my new 2004 Honda CR-V oh so many years ago, that it was built in England.
    Our 2013 CR-V, on the other hand, was built in Mexico.

  10. There is a lot of misinformation on here today. The Queen takes the advice of her chief minister, the Prime Minister. She does not have any legislative power. She can influence discussions but not obstruct. The Queen during the whole of her long reign, has been very careful to not publicly state her position on anything. She is a figurehead. cdm

  11. Blond? Sure man if it works with your fantasies. Ginger trash comb-over is more accurate.
