Trump keeps admitting he lost – The Washington Post


Trump knows full well that he lost, for he is not an idiot, although he is very successful in portraying one, but his ego will not allow him.

He has gone all his life trying to go round authority, rules and laws, as his upbringing allowed him to think he could get away with everything, mainly using his wealth to destroy anyone he wishes to.

But the Law does eventually catch up and for Trump, hopefully this is the occasion and again, hopefully it will take his family with him.

Trump’s call with Georgia’s Raffensperger could be illegal, but it would be hard to prosecute, experts say


I would say this situation is worthy of investigation as are many other aspects of Trump’s Presidency and irrespective of the the outcomes should render him incapable of standing for any election ever again.

He has by his many actions shown his incapacity to Govern and many of his actions should now be deemed void because of his incapacities.

Brexit could cause break-up of UK, says ex-Chancellor George Osborne | Daily Mail Online


So, George Osbourne, former Chancellor of the Exchequer, is saying Brexit could be the cause of the break up of the UK, well, if it is then so be it.

But, it is not Brexit, but the actions of previous Governments, with Brexit being the easiest reason to put forward, for previous Governments, be they Labour or Conservative, could not be the cause, could they!

George was never in favour of Brexit, but, then, I was never in favour of George.

Brexit will, eventually, be good for England and any other country within the UK who stays with England.

As to Brexit, I did vote to leave and my conviction to do so, is only strengthened more each day, when I see how the EU is prolonging the discussions on the terms of a Trade Deal between the UK and the EU, for they only wish to punish the UK for daring to leave the EU and to show others who are not happy being in the EU, how they would be treated, if they wished to leave,

What I would say, is if I had known in 1975 what I know now I would have voted to leave then, instead, I mistakenly voted to stay in 1975, my worst vote ever.

Goodbye EU, but hello Europe, for we wish to trade with Europe not the EU.

Macron on EU-UK fishing feud: ‘I’m not giving my piece of cake away’ | Euronews


In the article the following is mentioned ‘  “The European Commission suggested yesterday that European fishermen could continue to fish in British waters after a no-deal. Do you, Mr President, want to have your cake and eat it?,” Daily Mail journalist James Franey asked.

So, in the referred UK Territorial waters the issue of fish would be under the jurisdiction of the UK, not France or the EU, so Macron’s comment about ‘cake’ does not hold water. It is up to the UK to state if they wish to amend the jurisdiction, so it is UK cake not French cake. Therefore it is not Macron’s cake to give or retain.
Now what about the money we are expected to give to the EU, surely if you give an agreed notice of termination, and we have given more than 4 years, no money should be given to the EU, especially with a ‘No Deal’ situation.
I appreciate that we left on 31 December 2019, but the giving of termination money should be dependent on receiving a Trade Deal, so if it is ‘No Deal’ then any giving of money should be terminated.

Labour MP Chris Bryant denies telling Commons speaker to ‘f*** off’ | Daily Mail Online


This from a, so called, Senior MP, is totally unacceptable, so, Chris Bryant MP should be formerly suspended from the House.

Also, where is Keir Starmer and his comments on this, as he should be rebuking Bryant for his behaviour and taking other actions.

If a Tory MP had done this then Starmer and all the opposition MPs would be clamouring for the abusive MP to be suspended from the Chamber and quite rightly so.

I beg your pardon? Does Trump really plan to absolve himself and his family? | US news | The Guardian


So Trump is considering the use of his ability to grant pardons, not only to his children, but also himself and this just shows the clear reason for him to not hold the Office of President.

This would be a totally unjust use of power.

He is completely unsuitable to hold that Office and should be barred, as soon as possible, from ever holding that Office ever again.

The EU Parliament’s Procedure to Decide on the Immunity of Catalan MEPs Carles Puigdemont, Clara Ponsatí and Toni Comín to Begin Tomorrow Monday


I do hope that the EU Parliament come down on the side of Catalan leaders Puigdemont, Ponsatí and Comín, rather than the Spanish authorities.

For the leaders Puigdemont, Ponsatí and Comín were following their convictions and the wishes of the Catalonian population in the 2017 independence referendum.

For, if, the results of any referendum are not abided by, then what is the point of having a referendum.

However, the EU and some countries within the EU are not good in progressing the views of referendums, has can be seen with the UK Brexit referendum of 2016 and previously referendums in Ireland in 2001 and 2008, Greece in 2019 and France and The Netherlands in 2005, .

Lets hope on this occasion the views of the Catalonian population will be upheld.

Josep Goded

Tomorrow Monday, November 16th, the European Parliament’s Committee on Legal Affairs will start discussing whether to lift the immunity of Catalan leaders Puigdemont, Ponsatí and Comín. This comes at the request of Spanish authorities, who have openly expressed their desire to have them extradited in order to jail them for their roles in the 2017 independence referendum, even though Belgian justice recently rejected the extradition of exiled Catalan leader Lluís Puig arguing that the Supreme Court did not have the authority to issue a European arrest warrant against him.

The ultra-conservative Bulgarian MEP Angel Dzhambazki will be the head of the committee and will present the case, which will then be discussed by the rest of MEPs on the committee.

Monday’s session will be held virtually due to Covid-19 restrictions. Puigdemont, Comín and Ponsatí will be summoned for a hearing at a later date. The debate on their immunity is…

I’m still here. My continued battle with Long Covid and good memories.


No truer words have been published and my heart goes out to Charlotte Hughes and her family.

The Government also play their part in this debate, for all their work is there to discredit benefit claimants, for they make it as difficult as possible to claim benefits. Also, in most instances the assessments that claimants have to undergo add to this discredit of benefit claimants. Assessors have been shown to be producing incorrect assessments and some shown to have deliberately so, but has one assessor been prosecuted for doing so?

I fear not, which if correct is a disgrace.

The Government goes out of its way to make like difficult for vulnerable people, disabled people, the poor and sick, etc.

then, this Government and many previous Governments have deliberately kept Social Care short of fun ding, so it is not just welfare benefits they are using to make like difficult for persons in need, but also Social Care, which they require to live a reasonable life.

Governments have made numerous promises to provide the correct funding for Social Care and to solve many of the other problems, but to date, they have not done so. So, Social Care continues to slide greater into crisis and there will come a time, if it has not already been reached when the failure to solve the crisis will cause, not only distress and pain, but the ultimate, death.

It could be argued that in the COVID-19 pandemic this failure to solve the Social Care crisis as already created deaths, a great stain on this Government.

To bring this to the attention of everyone, especially the Government I created the petition, Solve the crisis in Social Care,

https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/solve-the-crisis-in-social-care.

Please view the petition and, if you agree, please sign and share.

But funding is not the only problem, even if it is the main problems, so, if you wish for further information please see,

The poor side of life

Dear readers an extra blog post from me, I hope that you don’t mind.

I’ve been a tad quiet recently because my recovery has been set right back.

My daughter unknowingly brought home a nasty virus with her when she returned home from school about two weeks ago.

What would normally would have been a slight cold etc completely floored me. I was forced to retreat back to bed.

I really hated having to retreat to bed because I wanted to be out and about and I had plans to do ‘stuff’.

I’m now out of bed but I’m coughing a lot and I can’t get my stats above 94 to 96. I’m also experiencing the return of the stabbing pains.

Yes I know that I should go back to the hospital and I will do when I’m financially able to do so. Shite happens and I’ve got to learn…
