DIANE ABBOTT pictured in PUB the night before missing Brexit vote with ‘migraine’

0

Although it is already well-known that the Labour MP and Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott missed the first parliament vote on the Article 50 Bill after saying that she had a ‘migraine,’ pictures are now circulating online of Abbott in a pub near Downing Street on the night before. 

According to a report in the Daily Mail, she was with colleagues in The Red Lion which is close to Downing Street. 

While her state of health could have changed in the 24 hours that followed, the image has angered a number of people who have been calling for her to resign due to missing the ‘historic’ vote. 

To make matters worse, she also gave a passionate speech in Westminster Hall just hours before signing herself off and leaving the Houses of Parliament. 

Many have been using the term ‘Brexit Flu’ to explain her absence, which is a short way of saying that she simply didn’t want to attend the vote and defy leader Jeremy Corbyn’s three-line whip to back the bill. 


Of course the big question now is whether or not Abbott will be present for the third and final vote on the bill on Wednesday evening.

ILLEGAL POSTERS appear in London accusing brave Navy personnel of being SUICIDE BOMBERS

0

A number of protest posters have appeared all over London that accuse serving members of the Royal Navy of being SUICIDE BOMBERS. 

The posters that have been plastered all over the Capital’s bus stops have even used official Royal Navy branding, logos and their website address, along with the recruitment-style headline BECOME A SUICIDE BOMBER. 

One sick poster said: ‘The crew of our nuclear submarines are on a suicide mission. To launch their missiles means death is certain, not just for them, but for the millions of innocent people those bombs will obliterate, and for the rest of us too.’

According to a report in The Telegraph, the posters were commissioned by the Special Patrol Group as a protest against the United Kingdom’s policy towards carrying nuclear weapons. 

Artist Darren Cullen added: ‘We see terrorist suicide bombers as depraved, which they undoubtedly are, but we don’t see our own depravity in building and operating nuclear suicide bombs that have the potential to murder millions and end human civilisation in the space of an afternoon.’

However, Transport for London have confirmed that the posters are an example of illegal fly posting, and a number of people have said that they ‘protest’ is actually an insult to the brave servicemen and women who regularly risk their lives while serving in the Navy. 

NavyLookout described the posters as ‘gross, childish distorted propaganda and insult to brave servicemen,’ adding: ‘Whatever your views on Trident no one is laughing at a sick ad that says ‘become a suicide bomber.’

The artist has also said that he has had messages of support from people who agree with his view that the British government shouldn’t be paying for a nuclear defence programme. 

However, we think that our boys and girls on the front line at sea would feel insulted, especially as images of their fellow colleagues are used in an attempt to attack the government as a whole.

Calls for Welsh MP to resign for BETRAYING CONSTITUENTS in Brexit vote

0

There have been calls for a Welsh MP to RESIGN after she ‘betrayed’ her constituents and voted against the Article 50 Bill in the House of Commons. 

This is in spite of the fact that almost 55% of her own Bridgend constituency voted Leave. 

Labour MP Madeline Moon has made it perfectly clear that she felt strongly enough about Brexit to defy both her own constituents and party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s three-line whip – this was in effect an ‘order’ for Labour MPs to vote in favour of the Article 50 Bill. 

According to a report in WalesOnline, she said that her decision was swayed by the election of Donald Trump in the USA. 

She also added that she was going against the wishes of her own constituents because of fears over workers’ rights, employment and whether or not a trade deal with the USA could make up for leaving the EU. 

One of her own constituents made his feelings perfectly clear in an open letter. 

He said: ‘As one of your constituents I would be interested to know how you can justify this vote in Parliament.’

‘Is it because you despise the principles of democracy? Is it because you despise your constituents? Is it because you enjoy spitting in their faces?’

Did your MP vote against the wishes of you and your fellow constituents in the first Article 50 Bill vote in Parliament? Let us know at info@yourbrexit.co.uk

Nigel Farage SLAMS John Bercow as OUT AND OUT HYPOCRITE on live radio

0

Nigel Farage has used his latest LBC radio show to SLAM Commons Speaker John Bercow as an OUT AND OUT HYPOCRITE over his very vocal opposition to Donald Trump giving a speech in Parliament.

It emerged on Tuesday that Bercow had actually hosted representatives from the disgraced nation of North Korea in 2011, having four officials from the state over for tea, and Farage was ready to call upon this and other similar receptions when he let rip into Bercow on his show.

He said: ‘We don’t like people who are nasty on grounds of race or sex or whatever it may be, well if that’s the case I want to know I really do, why in September 2012 when Bercow was welcoming the President of Indonesia.’

‘He said ‘Mr President it is a huge pleasure as well as a considerable honour for me to welcome you.’ Well you know some of you may know in Indonesia homosexuality is illegal.’

‘Or for example, why two months later he welcomes the Emir of Kuwait where women face constant discrimination, where marital rape doesn’t even exist, where it’s illegal to be gay and where they banned Israeli-Jews from entering the country at all.’

‘But when the end of Emir of Kuwait turns up.. it’s ‘Your Highness, it is my privilege to welcome…’ And on it goes! Vietnam! He even had the North Koreans round to tea in his apartment.’

‘He welcomes tyrants from all over the world, people who are racists, homophobes and anti-semites – they’re all welcome… unless they’re called Donald Trump.

“And that’s why I think this man is an enormous hypocrite, a disgrace to Parliament. And I would say that he’s gone the better.’

MP battling BRAIN TUMOUR checks out of hospital to cast Article 50 Bill vote 

0

The Conservative Stamford and Grantham MP Nick Boles who is currently battling a BRAIN TUMOUR has been telling his Facebook followers about how he bravely checked himself out of hospital so that he could vote in the Article 50 debate in Parliament. 

Although he has recently finished a gruelling third round of chemotherapy, he was still present to cast his vote in favour of supporting the bill. 

He was a Remain campaigner during the referendum build-up last year. 

On his Facebook wall, he posted: ‘Today, on my own initiative, I am coming out of hospital to support the government on the Article 50 bill. I have spent the last week receiving my third round of chemotherapy for the cancer that was discovered last October.’

‘But I want to come to Parliament to represent my constituents on this important bill and do my bit to ensure that it is passed without amendment.’

‘I believe it is in everyone’s interests that the PM is given the mandate to start negotiating Brexit and the formation of a new relationship with our friends in Europe without delay.’

Whatever side of the political divide you may sit on, you will have to agree that this is a tremendous example of an elected MP carrying out his duty on behalf of his constituents. 

Anyone going through such an arduous course of treatment would never be expected to travel down to London and take part – anyone who has been through it will tell tale after tale of the toll that it takes on the body and mind. 

Without naming names, it puts a certain someone else’s absence in the original Brexit vote into perspective …

John Bercow APOLOGISES after saying that Trump ‘not welcome in Parliament’

0

Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow has apparently apologised to his equivalent member of the House of Lords for not giving him prior warning before announcing that US President Donald Trump wouldn’t be welcomed to Parliament. 

According to a report in The Express, Lords Speaker Lord Fowler was contacted by Bercow after the announcement was made. 

When asked for his own view on the issue, he simply stated that he has an ‘open mind’ and added that it wasn’t his place to comment on such matters. 

A far more appropriate response for someone in a parliamentary speaker role. 

However, perhaps it would now be appropriate for Bercow to issue a wider apology for making controversial comments on a public issue when he has a duty to remain neutral and impartial. 

Unfortunately, this won’t be coming any time soon. He has maintained that he is still strongly opposed to the visit and he stands by his original remarks.

Petition for Sadiq Khan to be REMOVED as London Mayor approaches 75,000

0

A petition that was set up to get London Mayor Sadiq Khan REMOVED as Mayor of London is currently approaching 75,000 signatures.

The petition was originally created in response to Khan’s desire for London to have its own place at the ‘Brexit negotiating table,’ and the number of signatures has skyrocketed in recent weeks due to Khan’s attitude that a prosperous London means a prosperous Britain.

It will be interesting to see how large this petition has to get before someone in power takes it seriously and agrees to debate the issue.

As it isn’t on the official Government petition website (a similar petition was rejected from that page), there is no automatic ‘trigger point’ when it will have to be debated in Parliament.

However, with such a large number of followers at the present time, it could create a headache for Mayor Khan’s City Hall administration.

The petition can be viewed here.

YOU HYPOCRITE! Investigation reveals John Bercow hosted officials of NORTH KOREA in Parliament

0

A Freedom of Information (FoI) request has revealed that Commons Speaker John Bercow hosted a small gathering of representatives from NORTH KOREA in 2011 – yet he strongly opposes US President Donald Trump’s proposed speech in Parliament. 

According to a report on the excellent Guido Fawkes blog, four officials including the ‘Speaker of North Korea’ had tea with Bercow at his Speaker’s home on 28 March 2011. 

North Korea. Yep, North Korea. Let that just sink in for a moment …


Bercow announced that he was opposed to Trump visiting Parliament because of fears over racism and so on, but just a few years ago he was willing to welcome representatives from a country described by Human Rights Watch in the following manner:

North Korea remains among the world’s most repressive countries. All basic freedoms have been severely restricted. 

Just spend a few minutes Googling North Korea and you will be appalled at tales from defectors about the conditions in North Korean labour camps. 

This a country where you can be worked to death for expressing an opinion, and you can expect all of your immediate family members and neighbours to be hauled away as well just in case. 

To paraphrase the late, great Father Ted … The North Koreans, a great bunch of lads. 

According to the blog report, the gathering was organised for Bercow ‘to tell him candidly what they thought of the conduct of his regime.’

What the hell is wrong with an email or a strongly-worded letter? It doesn’t take a pot of Earl Grey and a tray of Fondant F*****g Fancies to tell someone that their country is a disgrace to humanity. 

At the same time however, he won’t allow the leader of the free world to give a speech in Parliament. Did we mention also that Donald Trump was democratically elected?

Hundreds of supporters set to pack streets outside court as Alexander Blackman appeal begins

0

More than 500 supporters are planning to show their support for Sgt Alexander Blackman over the 7th, 8th and 9th of February outside the Royal Court of Justice in London

Hundreds of supporters gathered outside of the Royal Court of Justice today while many were in the court room overseeing proceedings to free Sgt Alexander Blackman.

A reporting restriction has been removed today allowing the media to report freely on the case.

A special bench in court 4 has been reserved for former top brass to show their support for Sgt Blackman who was on a video link.

Falklands veteran Lieutenant Colonel Ewen Southby-Tailyour OBE said: ‘They all feel very strongly about this case. Blackman has huge support among the officer class.’

‘Not all officers back him, it is true, but large numbers feel he has not been treated well.’

‘Not all of them will be able to turn up, because some are infirm, but there is a tremendous feeling that this appeal is a watershed moment.

‘In the field, Blackman was let down by some of his officers. We feel strongly he should know that we’re not all like that.’

Black Cabbies beeped their horns in support for Sgt Alexander Blackman making their voices heard, a similar show of support took place in early January as Sgt Blackman’s legal team battled to get him bail.

Updates from the Plymouth Herald were posted onto their website which can be found here. 

Blackman was suffering from a mental condition known as an adjustment disorder, the court heard.

Neil Greenberg, an academic psychiatrist who served with the Royal Navy for 23 years, earlier gave his opinion on Blackman’s mental state at the time of the killing.

He told the court that Blackman’s colleagues said he had changed after a grenade was thrown at him.

One reported it was like “a switch in his head”.

The court heard Blackman became increasingly isolated and irritable following the incident and would spend more time alone.

13:30  20% suffer poor mental health

Me Greenberg told the court that between 20 and 25 per cent of British troops suffer from mental health issues.

He added that adjustment disorder was the most common condition diagnosed amongst military personnel.

Information about the campaign can be found at the official website www.justiceformarinea.com or on the official Facebook page: Justice for Marine A

HUMILIATION for Sturgeon as SNP amendments to Article 50 Bill are CRUSHED

0

SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon’s proposed amendments to the Article 50 Bill have been CRUSHED by an overwhelming majority in a House of Commons vote. 

Their proposal included Prime Minister Theresa May being forced to delay activating Article 50 until one month after Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland had agreed on a ‘UK-wide approach for Brexit.’

In the vote itself, the amendments were defeated by 332 votes to 62. 

The defeat will be a crushing blow for Sturgeon and her party at a time when they are making a huge amount of noise about having the power to get the best possible deal for Scotland. 

Sturgeon has also insisted that ANOTHER independence referendum is ‘on the table.’

This was just one of four major attempts to make amendments to the Article 50 Bill – all of them were defeated. 

It remains to be seen whether or not there will be any further attempts to change how Brexit will be carried out.
