BREXIT OR NOT IS NOW A POLITICISED MESS !


The Referendum in June 2016 in which 52% of the Electors voted for BREXIT (Britain should leave the EU), was a free decision for each voter, without any interference by political parties. 

The Prime Minister, Theresa May has led discussions with the EU to determine the exact conditions and cost for Britain to leave the EU.   British MPs have the right and duty, to authorise or not, all the final Final BREXIT leaving conditions agreed with the EU.

However, political infighting has revealed that on every occasion possible, the Socialist opposition in Parliament is now attacking the Prime Minister and the very small majority of her Government.

Added to this are also reports of MPs who have changed sides since the Referendum and would now prefer Britain to remain in the EU ! 

The real problem now is "Could Theresa May ever get a satisfactory Vote of Confidence" in the House of Commons ?

Would the best solution not be a second Referendum which would permit ELECTORS to decide - for BREXIT or to Stay in the EU ?

JOHNNY HAS LEFT - PARIS IS EMPTY !


After more than a million people thronged the streets of Paris yesterday to pay their last respects to Johnny Hallyday, Paris seemed empty this morning !

His hearse left Paris on a chartered flight this morning,  with relations and a few close friends, for the French volcanic island of Saint Bartelemy in the Caribbean, where Johnny will be buried, in accordance with his wishes.

This small island has a population of about 8000 people and one can only hope that his fans will not charter huge flights to visit his grave ! 

The fact that Johnny's grave is so far away is a blessing in disguise for Paris and France !   It means his fans cannot make his grave a shrine and regularly visit it.  Will it not help them to get over their grief ?

FRANCE MOURNS AND HONOURS JOHNNY !


During almost 60 years, everyone who has seen or heard the 74 year old star Johnny Hallyday sing rock & roll, has a souvenir associated with one of his songs. 

Today they were millions either watching his  funeral  procession directly in Paris or on their televisions.  The procession went to the Madeleine Church, via the Avenue de la Grande Armée and the Champs Elysée .

President Macron and the two previous  Presidents (Sarkozy and Hollande) attended the religious ceremony.

The eulogies of orators obviously underlined the reasons for Johnny's popularity among all generations during the last sixty years.

Probably some Hotels, Restaurants and Bars will make a "claim to fame" by announcing that Johnny slept, ate or drank in their establishments !   Will Roads and Squares also be named after him ?

It will be a very long time before another Personality is burried, who has also stirred-up as much intense interest and heart-felt sorrow !

NO BREXIT IMPACT VALUATION READY ?


David Davis the Secretary of State responsible for Brexit Negotiations, has admitted that no Financial Impact Valuation has been completed in the event of Britain leaving the EU !

How can a Government, with an army of highly paid Civil Servants and outside specialist advisors, begin Brexit negotiations not having calculated how much it could cost Britain and its Citizens to leave the EU ?

Leaving the EU is like a Group of companies which sells a subsidiary.  Management must calculate before the sale how future results of its Group would be affected in later years.   This would also indicate what the selling price should be, or could even lead to the decision not to sell !

When the Directors of Companies, buy or sell important assets, they have a duty to report to their shareholders !  Do Members of Parliament not have a similar duty to their Electors ?   

Specialists in the accounting profession know the techniques required for takeovers, both for acquisitions and cessions.   Such work is sometimes not easy, but it is essential !   And it is often done secretly, but it is  necessary !

IS BREXIT COST OFFSET by the BRENTRY COST ?


When Britain was finally allowed to join the EU in 1980 what were the conditions of that ENTRY ?   Also what was the Financial COST to Britain of any EU conditions Britain was obliged to assume ?

Now that Britain wants to leave all that is ever highlighted is the cost suffered by the EU because Britain wants to leave !

Has the latent cost which Britain assumed on its BRENTRY to the EU been calculated and offset in the BREXIT cost now being discussed ?

This benefit to the EU countries that remain, never seems to be highlighted after any Discussions or in any Press Articles !
