The Wild Wild West

Well against all the odds again Frankenstein’s Monster has demonstrated he can do incredible things. A deal finally after all this time, but hang on a sec, didn’t Theresa the Bruce have a deal last October and then it all came tumbling down. This time surely, it’s different, with the backstop gone, all those Tory MPs who wouldn’t vote for …

Here we go again…

Well, here we go again. I would like to say there is a sense of Déjà vu in the air, but if I am totally honest it feels a lot more ruthless. This time around, things feel more focussed and it appears increasingly likely that Brexit will happen on 31st October. The sides are if anything more entrenched, but that …

Brexit Update

Wow – yet another couple of weeks of unprecedented, incredible scenes in the UK Parliament.  It is dangerous to take your eye off events even if you are getting to the stage where Brexit is the sort of word that stimulates the emergence of hives and breathlessness merely at its mention. Please accept my apology for the interval since my …

Boris Johnson’s First Fortnight

So Boris, our Frankenstein’s Monster, beat the sly old fox, some might say a victory of beef over brains?  To assume however that Frankenstein’s Monster is a buffoon as his image has often portrayed is probably naïve.  This is an individual who went to Eton with all the other ‘Nobs’ and even amongst them all, he supposedly claimed he aimed …

It’s the holiday season!

Hooray – it’s the holiday season!  We can all forget our woes and fly off to sunny Spain where we eat egg and chips in a place we don’t normally eat egg and chips (does anyone actually eat egg and chips anymore?).  We can forget about all of our day to day problems and soak up the sun, maybe for …

No-Deal Brexit

The ex-civil servant responsible for Brexit up until March, Philip Rycroft, came out at the weekend and told us all yet again that a ‘No Deal’ Brexit would be “fraught with risk”. Many commentators, politicians and business leaders have suggested that it is tantamount to a catastrophe that will cost the UK billions and set our economy back twenty years …

‘Frankenstein’s Monster’ and ‘The Fox’

Like most of you, I haven’t had a lot to discuss regarding Brexit over the last couple of months, and if I am honest I have been pleased to bury my head in other tasks as the Brexit situation doesn’t appear to be evolving at present.  Now however I feel it is imperative that I start to ensure that our …

You must not yet forget the name Brexit

I haven’t written anything on the Blog for a few weeks now. I apologise for that lapse, but I think, like everyone else involved with Brexit, I needed some time out to recover from the twists and turns of the whole process, and it has certainly felt over the last few weeks that the pressure has been released.  Unfortunately, this …

Never Gonna Give You Up

I apologise in advance for repeating myself, here we are once again with no more clarity than we have had for the last two years and nine months.  Yet another week of unprecedented political activity whereby Theresa the Bruce’s deal has returned to the commons to be defeated again and now we have the prospect of a fourth vote on …

Brexit, the power of a word!

When initially coined, the word ‘Brexit’ made the whole experience sound like a bit of a jaunt supporters and demonstrators could get behind to oppose or promote their view with chants such as; ‘Brexit means Brexit’ ‘No to Brexit’ ‘Hard, Brexit’ ‘Soft Brexit’ Now, however, the word has started to become a boulder around all of our necks, every outlet …
