• Remember this?


    When I was a lad the Yorkshire Post and the Yorkshire Evening Post ran a “Spot the Ball” competition. It was a grainy B&W photo of a scene like the above with no football. The idea was that readers could cut out the photo and post it in with one or more crosses as to where they thought the ball was. The more crosses the more money one had to send in. It was a form of lottery.

    Like the old rotary dial telephones, they’ve all but disappeared.

    NOT QUITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There is now a new spot the object competition! It is called, “Spot the objective!”

    The “objective” being Madame Mayhem’s objective in pursuing the course of action she is pursuing!

    Since Midsummer’s Day 2016, the excellent Doctor Richard North and Mr Christopher Booker have been examining, researching and studying the actions and statements of those engaged in Brexit.

    Their efforts have been particularly distinguished but their rewards have been that of being ignored or insulted, Mr Booker particularly so with various morons commenting in the Daily Torygraph and calling him a Remainer.

    Herewith their latest efforts:

    Today, we are 25 days away from 29th March 2018: one year to Brexit.
    There is talk of a provisional letter notifying withdrawal from the EEA being sent later this month.
    It is utterly mystifying!

    When trying to figure out a person’s actions and motivations one has to make assumptions. If one assumes a wish NOT to wreck the economy and a wish NOT to achieve a wipe-out of all elected Tories for a generation, it is hard to fathom the logic of Madam Mayhem’s actions. We are of course making the assumption that she is acting rationally and is sane.

    Whether or not we voted “Leave” or “Remain” in the 2016 referendum, let us consider the FACTS!

    1. What Madame Mayhem is seeking in terms of mutual recognition cannot be achieved.
    2. Since it is unachievable any competent Foreign Office mandarin would know this and as such will have told Boris the Buffoon.
    3. The hypothetical scenario where the government delivers an unsatisfactory deal that damages the economy and seeks to emolliate the anger of the voters with the excuse; “Well this is what you voted for….” has as about as much chance of success as Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei has of being invited to Benjamin Netanyahu’s great nephew’s Bar Mitzvah.

    Our American friends in Dixie have a saying; “This dog isn’t going to hunt.”

    Assuming that Madame Mayhem and Boris the Buffoon are not delusional then the logical conclusion stands out like a black person at a Klu Klux Klan convention: That the Brexit dog has not been bred to hunt and it is not going to. That it has been bred for another purpose: To run around a back yard barking making it’s presence known. You see, since Madame’s Brexit proposals cannot be implemented she has to manoeuvre herself and her party into a position where the unsatisfactory outcome can be laid at the Unfortunate Comrade Corbyn’s feet. Or those of Sad Vince of That Cable.

    One can imagine Madame calling out along the lines of Henry II: “Who will rid me of this turbulent policy?”
    Enacting Brexit is a poison chalice and will bring political death to all those whose lips have touched it.
