Referendum, But whose?

DSCF3465 (640x480)

I am not a supporter of Jeremy Corbyn too much of a pacifist for my liking, however he is playing the EU referendum very well. Criticised by the  Tory press for not supporting the Prime Minister’s efforts to stay inside the EU, but this is as much about a referendum on the conservative government. It is a delight to witness all these loyal Tories ripping one another to pieces watching Boris bite chunks out of David then getting kicked in the nuts for being wrong on so many things.

Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg got the Scottish referendum completely wrong, the conservatives played them like a salmon, not a sturgeon. The conservatives had nothing to lose in Scotland, so Labour and the Lib Dem’s did all the heavy lifting and they got a perfect thank you from the electorate losing almost every seat north of the border. Shame they didn’t vote for independence, but they are happiest when someone else picks up the bills.

Wouldn’t it be really good if Britain voted to leave then all those UK IP Ponce’s would have to get a real job instead of living off the tax payer in Brussel’s. If they had any moral conviction they would not take their seats in The European Parliament and refuse the enormous salaries handed out to them wouldn’t they? I bet they will all vote to stay in at the ballot box come June, your job will be completely finished then Mr Farage, what a very French name?

So carry on doing what you are doing Mr Corbyn keep your head down and watch the conservatives destroy one another. George Osborne has already died the death at the hands of I Duncan Smith, who will be the next to fall on his sword? Gove hasn’t got the guts, I wonder how many Privy Counsel meetings he will be invited to, Teresa May probably went out and bought a new pair of shoes in celebration.

George Osborne seems to make a catastrophic mistake every time he presents a budget he may be good at adding up the figures in the treasury but not so hot counting the votes on the floor of Parliament, so his leadership challenge is dead in the water.

These wounds will not heal in time for the next general election, so who will replace David Cameron as leader everyone hates each other. Boris might get 40% of the votes and Teresa, Mother Teresa?

“I don’t want Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister but the conservatives seemed determined to make him the Prime Minister perhaps they all have a big bet on. Self interest and stupidity reign supreme.

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
