Wakey, Wakey – U.K. Votes to “Change Politics For Good”…

The British voted yesterday for members to the European Parliament.  The official announcement of results will not come out until Sunday because the EU vote window is 5/23 through 5/26 (and heaven-forbid the pesky Brits would influence the continent).

That said, initial media “surveys” and “exit polling” reflect the Brexit Party crushed traditional party-lines and gained around one-third of total vote support.

A Survation poll for the Daily Mail shows Mr Farage’s Brexit Party well ahead in the European elections on 31 per cent, trailed by Labour on 23, the Conservatives on 14 and the Lib Dems on 12 (link)

For a political movement only six weeks old; and a likelihood the surveys and exit polls are sandbagged; the results by Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party are remarkable.

The results are so good it is also likely Prime Minister Theresa May will announce her decision to resign her post; with a request for delayed exit (irony) so she doesn’t suffer the embarrassment of a President Trump state visit simultaneous to her being voted out of office (irony x 2).

The odds-on favorite to become Prime Minister is Boris Johnson.

(Via Daily Mail) […] Theresa May will today clear the way for Britain to have a new prime minister by the summer.

Allies said that – barring a last-minute change of heart – she will announce plans this morning to step aside as Conservative Party leader next month.

Mrs May will begin the day with a meeting with the Tories’ backbench shop steward Sir Graham Brady to discuss the exact timetable for her departure.

She is then expected to address the nation from Downing Street to explain why she is leaving ‘the job I love’ before she has realised her ambition of leading Britain out of the European Union.

Mrs May is expected to try to delay the start of the Tory leadership race until the week beginning June 10, to allow her to host Donald Trump’s state visit without the indignity of her MPs voting on her successor at the same time. (read more)

Funny, how that happens….

“See you soon”…

  1. Too bad she didn’t take President Trump’s advice on negotiating with the EU for BREXIT. Not to mention the deserved embarrassment over Britain’s complicity in Spygate.
    Bet her last meeting with Queen Elizabeth was a doozy. Even the weak-need Prince Charles will meet with POTUS and FLOTUS this trip.

    Just desserts!

      End of more than an era, end, one hopes, of corrupt and venal politicians, riding roughshod on the backs of native Britons, May should be burned at the stake. As an ex-Limey,soldier of the Queen and Warrant officer, I have to suspect that the house of Windsor will also meet it’s fate, deservedly. ‘My’ Queen, didn’t lift a finger when she had it in her power to prorogue Parliament in March, thus saving her ‘real’ subjects from more misery.

        The Queen should have stepped down long ago. It’s very obvious that she’s been out of touch for a very long time, going back to how poorly she initially mishandled the royal family’s response over the death of Princess Diana. Also, Britain’s Parliament is full of swamp creatures, just our like Congress. Be it the Parliament or Congress, they do NOTHING for the working class. They just take, and they take, and they keep right on taking.

      I think it’s useful and important to note few of these people act on any sort of moral motive in any of this. They act under the orders of other causes. Threats, greed, orders of ‘authority’ and others are among these alternative causes. The moral motives never, ever made sense to anyone who understands morality. Why are they importing Muslims? Why do they punish people who speak the truth? Why has the global landscape been changed so that rich and powerful nations become hosts to parasite both in population and for other nations economically?

      Those questions are not being asked directly and absolutely no answers to these questions have been pressed.

        I agree, JoAnn. Queen Elizabeth seems the stalwart for decency and dignity.

        I recently watched a TV special (rerun) of her 90th year and she has, throughout her reign, maintained a level of decorum, responsibility and fairness. She has been adept at putting aside political differences on the world stage for the sake and betterment of her country.

        It was interesting to note in the TV documentary, there was a significant amount of film footage of Royal occasions, state dinners, such as welcoming the president of China, etc., and there was the Queen and Prince Phillip and directly behind them was always William and Kate. I never saw Charles and Camilla. Maybe rumors are true that she will hand the crown to her grandson, William, and skip Charles who has plans to turn Buckingham Palace into some kind of free for all community center, and also deny Camilla any access to the throne.

        It will be quite interesting to see how Britain welcomes our First Couple this time around. It was delightful to see President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump last year, warmly conversing and enjoying their time with the Queen while her dour, ill mannered family sat out the opportunity to show respect and international diplomacy. Maybe the younger Royals ought to read the headlines this morning. The people of Britain are sick and tired of London’s dramatic decline into Islam. England has always loved their Royalty, every wedding, birth and funeral is extremely personal to The People, Harry and his SJW atrophy wife are rumored to be considering a move to Africa. Sounds perfect. The Obama’s would have a wonderful, welcoming place to stay on their visits. How perfectly ironic since the O’s have often railed against British colonization.

        May God protect our President and First Lady as they travel to represent We, the People. May the commemoration ceremonies at the 75th D-Day memorial be a shining, renewing example to the world that the United States of America is proud, fearless and mighty. We don’t falter and we don’t quit.

        May PM Theresa May humbly ask our President’s and our First Lady’s forgiveness for her part in trying to thwart their service to America.

        May the Queen enjoy another State Visit from our very own, much beloved President and First Lady—we are sending you our best, show them proper respect, please.

        And, may the future King, Prince William and his Princess Kate, grow up and realize that at any time they could be tasked with the job of welcoming leaders from around the world and understand that the disagreement they have against Donald Trump is in large part quite simply regurgitated Fake News. Grow up, young King, you will always need the United States of America. England’s role in this coup mess isn’t fully known but whatever it was, it was hideous and inexcusable. Future King, you got some ring kissing of your own to do thus weekend. Man up. Americans don’t care what little bro Harry and his Trump hating wife think or do, same with your dad, but we expect you to respectfully acknowledge our President of the United States who also is, BTW, the true Leader of the Free World..

        He’s not really a staunch Brexiteer, he’s a staunch Boriseer. He wavered on which side to support in the referendum and concluded that Boris’s interests lay with Leave. Nevertheless his interests currently align with Leave – if he got himself elected as a “staunch Brexiteer” and failed to deliver, then he’d be toast.

        He’s high risk in that he’s a magnificent gaffe machine, and he’s got so many skeletons in his closet (the shapely long legged type of skeleton) that he’s had to start stacking them in the garage. But he does have the gift of being able to articulate a positive vision of an independent Britain, rather than merely the negative one (“we hate being ruled by the Germans.”) And he has a self deprecating wit – after one of his disasters he said :

        My friends, as I have discovered myself, there are no disasters, only opportunities. And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters.

        He is widely hated, especially by Conservative congresscritturs, which is why he may well not make it into the run off for leader; and he goes down like a lead ballon wth some sections of the public. But many of those sections are sections that wouldn’t vote for any Conservative; and he balances that with being quite popular with some folk who are middle of the road.

        He comes across as a human rather than a politician and that appeals to some. He’s both though – he’s certainly a politician.

        IMHO he would be the right choice. Delivering Brexit and then winning an election, given the enormous hole that Mrs May has dug, requires a gambler, even a scoundrel. Cometh the hour…

        I suggest she re-think the date of her exit. Her presence at and participation in the President’s visit will heighten enormously her shame in having gotten “the boot.” I think she should leave soon and quietly to maintain the shred of dignity she is clutching.

  21. The Palace invitations were timely.

    In true British form,Brits think they can stroke the Presidents ego with these ridiculous formalities. All in order for The President to hide their malfeasance.

    Trump will have a free lunch at the palace. Why not? His MOAB today will be causing things to unravel back home while democrats formulate their narrative.

    Usually, when the cat’s away the mice will play. But I think the cat is much smarter in this instance.

    His timing is perfect.

      I do not agree with your ‘Stoke the President’s ego’. The invitation was well considered and it is the anniversary of WWII.Not a light matter as the US was seminal in defeating the Nazis and their allies. All sensible peoples in Britain and Europe know this truth.

      You are denigrating not only the Queen as the symbolic head of Great Britain, but also the many men and women and their descendants who remember the sacrifices made, Brits and Americans who joined hands and defeated that evil.

      The President is honoured to be there, as is the Queen to have him there as the representative of the American People, who was a young girl during the blitz.

      This is no “free lunch” as you put it. This is a memorial and occasion to honour the dead, who helped preserve freedom, and a testimony that those values that defeated a great evil will not rise again.

          My Uncles were a pilots during WWII stationed in Great Britain….He flew the Lucky Strike, Life Magazine’s “most shot up ship of the war.” A second Uncle was shot down over Germany and spent the war in prison camp in Germany. My dad was a Marine in the Pacific theatre. The first Uncle I mentioned also served in Korea. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross. Their stories were never talked about in front of us kids. I wasn’t even aware my Uncle was an honored hero until I joined the Army during the Viet Nam War. We had to sneak around and accidentally catch pieces of their stories over time. After serving as a grunt in Viet Nam, I understand their silence around others. God Bless all vets and the people and countries they fought for.

            If I didn’t know better, I’d swear we were brothers, for except for a few minor changes the history of my father and uncles is nearly identical. It wasn’t just the men that kept their stories close. Mom and my aunts where in the Navy, stationed in D.C. They held on to “loose lips, sinks ships,” decades past V.E. and V.J. day. I may never put to paper all that I have learned but, I have recorded just enough so that their great grand children will know the stock they come from. One of the first generation to come to America is buried at Valley Forge and it’s been a battle for freedom every since. Leaves may fall but, our roots are deep and wide, the tree lives on through sunshine and storm.

      Our parents, grandparents, and now great grandparents gave their all so that we can live in freedom. It almost got taken away from us. Wake up. President Trump is following the road re-opened by President Reagan for American freedom and prosperity that should have been surveyed, dug, asphalted, expanded with development since WWII. What we gave the Europeans to build to their own national prosperity once more! Instead we got this elitist greed, using marxist, islamic agents of tyranny to take down the powerful U.S. of A.

        However, I firmly believe that Britain has an ulterior motive to save their skin in this Spygate fiasco.

        I may not have expressed things the way you would like. But you must respect people views. As I have done yours by replying.

        The British are complicit in the current affair. They and other Commonwealths are complicit. It stands to reason due to their past history that they will want to hide it.

        I think you are insulting President Trumps intelligence. He know’s full well what went on and has even said that he may ask PM May about it. Without of course taking anything away from D-Day. Unfortunately the two issues have crossed paths thanks to our corrupt system and may it soon be rectified.

    Mrs May believed her party could run on a BREXIT platform 2 years ago, then delay / delay / delay an exit, supposedly “negotiating” a bump-free detachment. Then she revealed a proposed “separation” that had Britain tied to and subsidizing the EU over 30+ Billion Sterling forever.

    That fake separation sank like lead, so Mrs May advanced another that was same-same. Of course, it had to be same-same because Mrs May answers to a cash-strapped EU and favored EU industries and not her British electorate.

    British anger at Mrs May’s betrayal is immense. Whoever heard of a brand new party, formed 3 weeks ago with largely new / unknown candidates, capturing 1/3 of the vote?

    Since these elections are not sending MPs to Parliament in London, but to Europe, Mrs May continues to enjoy a working majority in the House of Parliament. But her party now commands 14% of the UK electorate and she needs to make way for a successor ASAP — in the hope that he or she can repair electoral disillusionment. But don’t bank on Mrs May leaving.

    Both Mrs May’s Conservative Party and her opposition, the Labor Party, are full of like-minded betrayers who answer to off-shore masters — not unlike our own UniParty in DC. And just as our DC Decepticons believe they have the electorate fooled, so do these UK Conservatives.

      He saw and lived through this war against America. He knows that a commitment to freedom, to limited government, and to checks and balances in every area leads to the good life. They – the authoritarian opposition – are the losers.

She is so bitter she is just trying to block President Trump from meeting with Boris. He will meet with Nigel Farage anyway. so it does not matter.

    But, every 4 years we, including the world, watch World Class Athletes compete in the Olympics for what? Their COUNTRY. NATIONAL heroes emerge…even those who lose become part of the enduring and endearing legacy we enshrine (remember the Jamaican Bobsled team? Of course!)

    Patriotism is glorified for the brief time of the Olympics, and then demonized for the interim period between Olympics. IF in fact Globalism is the real future of the world, then the Olympics should be banned…you know, so we won’t be ‘two faced’. And in fact, if Globalism is the REAL future of the world, then we can disband the United Nations.
