    Tory MPs To Give Voters ‘Asylum’ Veto? 


    Democracy rules?

    I see “Tory MPs…are backing an idea…

    …to allow residents of streets or villages to vote on whether to accept additional development in their close vicinity…. 

    https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/oct/24/tory-mps-back-plan-to-give-people-a-vote-on-new-housing-in-their-areas

    The more power to the people, the better…

    .

    .

    …and any move to hinder arrogant elite diktats…

    .

    .

    …that impact disagreeably on the lives of citizens should be welcomed.

    But let this principle of community consent not be confined merely to ‘development…’

    .

    .

    ..but also to the imposition of so-called ‘asylum-seekers’ on villages, towns or city neighbourhoods that do not wish to be thus afflicted.

    .

    PS

    Yes, it would be better still to have a NATIONAL referendum on UK withdrawal from supranational conventions that politicians use as their excuse for open-door policies.

    .

    .

    But that would require a PM with MUCH more back-bone than rhe current occupant of 10 Downing Street.

    Remind ‘Asylum’ Andy Of City Limits! . 


    Make all councils take Afghanistan refugees, says Andy Burnham

    Who does this leftist dweeb think he is?

    Andy Burnham2.jpg

    Manchester’s Mayor Andy Burnham

    Manchester may now call itself Greater Manchester but, however wider still and wider its boundaries may be set, there ARE city limits, beyond which Busybody Burnham’s writ doesn’t run!

    We have heard this ‘fair share’ flatulence, from the likes of the she-devil Mama Stasi Merkel.

    After traitorously ordering border security to stand down, a million primitives poured in.

    .

    ..

    Yes, pity the German victims of crimmigrant molestation and mayhem.

    But for Merkel and her Brussels comrades then to call on more responsible governments to take their ‘fair share’ was the vilest effrontery.

    If I coat my kitchen floor with scraps of cheese and thus encourage rodents…

    .

    .

    .

    …am I then entitled to call on my neighbours to take their ‘fair share’ of vermin?

    How many fake-‘refugees’ does Burnham’s city already contain?

    Are they housed in hotels? Or costly rented properties?

    Has Burnham got a majority of Mancunians’ agreement on that?

    If so, Hell mend Manchester!

    But as I have argued before, EVERY local council should be obliged NOT to accept coercive in-takes of aliens….

    ….but to CONSULT their electorates, by local referendum, on the issue.

    A simple yes/no question on the ballot paper –

    Should ‘asylum-seekers’ be housed in our community?’

    .

    .

    NB – the decision of the voters should not be subject to veto by local leftist council cabals

    And if EVERY city and county says ‘NO!?! ‘

    Johnson and Patel should use the suitable sites I’ve proposed in the past….

      Boris Johnson and his Cabinet approved the 20000 latest entrants.
      So there should be a fair sharing of the 20000 between those Cabinet Ministers constituencies.
      Then watch their voters respond.

    ‘Conservatives?’ Let’s Look At Letwin! 


    Of course another referendum might be in order – in 2050: similar to the gap between the first and second European referenda.

    I was active in the 1975 campaign, and remember the pain of losing.

    So I’m willing to be fair..

    .referndmlet peole vote

    …Remainiacs must suffer graciously, then  – like me – wait four decades for a re-match.

    Anyway!

    clean break

    What manner of man is Oliver Letwin, a key player in the current subversion of Clean Break?

    Prodded by an articulate commenter, I was amazed to find that no less a pinko part of the media than The Guardian…

    Guardian-logo1

    ….published an EXCELLENT exposure of Letwin….

    truth-is-out-there

    ….some five years ago…

    Oliver Letwin’s career has been saved again and again by privilege. Couldn’t he share it around?

    True, the exposure back then was motivated by pinko stress, a feeling that his rat-like repudiation of the sense he’d once talked about the riotous savages during Maggie’s time in Number Ten…

    So Hacking A Cop to Death Did NOT Reflect ‘Bad Moral Attitudes?’ 

    Oliver Letwin, shadow home secretary
        Oliver Letwin apologises for ‘racist’ comments after rioting


    …was less than genuine.

    …..

    But now Letwin has been elevated to the pantheon of turn-coat heroes, would The Guardian do the same again?

    Sadly, I doubt it, and on that basis I append a couple of extracts from that Guardian piece.

    Enjoy!

    Who was one of the most influential figures responsible for the payment of grants worth £7m to the scandal-hit charity Kids Company shortly before its demise? Who overruled the advice of civil servants in so doing? The Mr Magoo of the government.

    Which honourable gentleman, Cabinet member, people’s representative and privy councillor was photographed over several days throwing parliamentary and constituency correspondence in a park bin?

    Letwin, Letwin, Letwin, Letwin…. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/dec/30/oliver-letwin-career-privilege

    He’s pretty despicable. At one time he posed as a champion of genuine conservative thinking.

    But when push came to shove, he crawled on his belly and APOLOGISED for talking sense.

    This week he’s been talking nonsense.

    When can we expect an apology?

    Britain On The ‘Stitch-Up’ Abyss! 


    It stinks of establishment stitch-up and disenfranchises the growing band of ‘no dealers’.”

    That’s a quote from one of the minority of UK MPs who has something resembling a conscience ( Gareth Snell, Labour, if you’re curious) and never a truer word was spoken, if the scheme being hatched, as seems ever more likely, offers a “People’s Vote,” not on “Remain” or “Leave…”

    ….but on “Remain” or  “May’s Sell-Out!”

    If Clean Break is not included as an option on any second referendum ballot paper…

    ….then there can be no legitimate outcome.

    And if that is the case, no Briton need feel obliged to abide by any Euroid laws.

    Let Every Brit Vote – That’s Democracy! 


    The risk of a second referendum –

    ‘Keep voting till you vote the way the political elite require!’

    voted

    ….continues to loom larger and larger.

    Two of Theresa May’s most senior allies are preparing for a second EU referendum behind her back…David Lidington — May’s deputy in all but name — held talks with Labour MPs on Thursday in an effort to build a cross-party coalition for a new vote…Gavin Barwell, the No 10 chief of staff, told a cabinet minister last week that holding a second referendum was “the only way forward…”   https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/theresa-mays-team-plots-new-eu-referendum-cl5xrwh52

    We must prepare.

    I missed a bit of important news last month, but so did most of the bigger media.

    referndmlet peole vote

    By this, I mean the issue of British people being denied the right to vote. You’d think that such a denial would be front-page news, but not so, hence I must give the far-left Guardian a rare pat on the back.

    Committee Debate: 4th sitting: House of Commons 14 November, 2018 (1) (2) |

    When the Brexit referendum was held, it was billed as an historic opportunity to let all British people make a choice between independence or continued subjugation to the EUSSR.

    But a million or more Brits living overseas got no such chance, thanks to a previous Labour Government deliberately taking their right to vote away, if they had been resident abroad for 15 years or more.

    Now a Conservative MP is pushing for reform, but Labour is resisting, although last month the bill was debated and it is going to reach its support stage next month.

    • Report stage: House of CommonsReport stage: House of Commons | 25.01.2019

    https://services.parliament.uk/bills/2017-19/overseaselectors.html

    I know some people say that this reform would be detrimental to the Brexit cause, due to a number of UK expats on the Continent voting on perceived self-interest rather than patriotic principle.

    That may be, although

    A – many Brits resident in Europe are surely not that self-centred, and

    B – there are many more in distant lands around the world who would put their country first no matter where they live.

      You are very fair-minded, after all the quisling noise we have heard from UK citizens resident on the Continent. Many of them seem to have gone native.
      Despite their choice to side with their own country’s oppressors in Brussels, if they are British, they ought, like us expats in Asia and Australia, to be allowed the right to vote.

      Labour is quite agreeable to giving those Eire enemy aliens a vote in British referendums, so how can they justify denying genuinely British people that right just because we have lived abroad for years?

      That Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, who is completely unfit for the job, has now started mixing into politics again, warning us against a clean break, which is a much better way to describe what she calls a no-deal.
      I can just picture her compiling a list of ‘Brexit-Crimes.’
      She can add europhobia to her list of arrestable offences. She loves the political police role.
