I feel so sorry for TM … and she is quite entitled being on tv to express her utter frustration at the ‘basket of snakes’ known as the House of Commons. Yet again we had Corbyn walking out of a meeting, forever projecting the image of the Labour ‘fighter’ … more now a hackneyed projection than any sense or desire to get things done. This thing we are stuck with called Brexit is way beyond party politics and way beyond MPs consciences and their wish to project the desires of their constituents. Such motivations and desires are piddling and irrelevant, a four percent swing to leave in my opinion should not have been sufficient to trigger all this nonsense, many constituencies voted overwhelmingly to stay. For the sake of business alone ie car manufacturing Brexit will be a disaster.
Its far too late, was too late three months ago for MPs to think ‘debating’ would serve any purpose, the debate should have rode in tandem with the negotiations one and two years ago. So many fractious views, the Geoffrey Cox bombshell, a bloody minded Speaker, so much disregard for how we make our living ie business and trade.
This morning on bbc r4 we had Oliver Letwin with more nonsense, speaking with the apparent voice of reasonableness but the content itself ie his message simply unworkable, out of step and half a year too late.
The Deal is the Deal, its the best that could be hammered out. Its at least two years of hard effort, not just a weekend chinwag. For Parliament to at this point think it can meld or influence is laughable. I applaud TMs Thursday ‘addesss to the nation’ indeed Parliament is holding up / destroying any positive forward movement. At least she had the guts to indicate why / where the responsibility of the holdup lies.
If we do leave this present situation its merely the beginning of masses of new legislation, debate, turmoil which to my mind is beyond the abilities of Parliament as an en masse functioning entity to resolve.
The crux is that theres too many facets to the Brexit arguament.
Perhaps we should send them by Eurostar en masse all six hundred and fifty of them and dump them outside the required building in Brussels and tell them “Do better if you can” !
Keen .... interested and don't like being fooled. Since I 'turned on' to climate change in Nov 2017 its instantly become all important to me.
So many aspects to consider, loss of sea ice, Arctic methane in its three forms (geological, frozen hydrate and microbial) insane (and deceptive) weather modification programmes, diatom loss (and algae and plankton) therefore loss of Pacific coral, Antarctic ice shelf set to begin collapsing, the methane time bomb, worldwide glacial melting, methane release from permafrost, global warming, Pacific contamination from Fukushima, Jet Stream disturbance, unstoppable feedback loops and the interconnectedness of natural forces and systems .... probable mass extinction etc etc.
I cannot see how there can be such a thing as 'climate change denial'.
I'm very tuned in to being outdoors, I've seen things few other people have ever seen or realised ie plants, animals, signs of our ancient ancestors; rocks, landscape, topography; the microscope, diatoms and algae. And of course the more I learn the greater my humility at how little I know.
Please realise though 2 or 3C sounds nothing it has triggered along with higher CO2 levels our weather systems to go into a self perpetuating feedback mode from a previous 'steady state' and this planets life-forms to be severely thrust into turmoil. Less ice means greater heat absorption, a black algae contributing, jet stream now slit in two and thrusting warm air and damp into the Arctic, These things are real and HAPPENING. Polar bears, the saddest of sights will soon only exist as memory, can you see as many bees in summer? We are losing Arctic and Antarctic ice, at the North Pole it is stupidly over-heated and now exists only as water, you cannot walk there, ie this is now and is now plain fact.
Food production will be vastly hindered, is already inoticeable, also the to be dreaded and increasing chemtrails hinder crop growth, the aluminium we know for fact promotes plant disease, hinders solar energy production and destroys ozone. Aluminium from chemtrails has destroyed waterborne entomology ie insect life, as well as I'm guessing diatoms and algae (and as not yet discussed coral reef destruction, the bryozoanss have lost their diatom partners) .... bees now battle with dementia from aluminium. One part say the lower part of the food chain cannot be taken away without all collapsing. Witness the much under-reported Pacific sea bird collapse of 2015. SAVVY UP - BE AWARE !!!
