No Solution At All!!!

President Trump said today that he is not tied to a two state solution. How is that going to look to the Palestinians? If they are not going to reach an end point where they have their own state, what is the point of them going on with the peace process?

If the Trump Whitehouse follows this path, they have lost an opportunity to be the straight talking, no bull peace-brokers that I hoped they would be. Donald Trump had all the cards in his hands, he does not owe anyone anything, he is a Washington outsider. Why can’t he just tell Netanyahu how it is:

  • Your settlements are illegal
  • You are occupying land that does not belong to Israel
  • You have punched above your weight for the past 50 odd years
  • The U.S will be your ally but an honest ally

Israel behaves the way it does because America sits back and allows it to. As soon as the U.S starts treating Israel in a proper way, expecting it to act responsibly etc.. Israel will have to change the way it treats the Palestinians.

The Palestinians are not innocent bystanders, they have to recognise Israel and accept it’s right to exist. Crack down on terrorism and cooperate with Israel on security issues. The only real solution will be an Israeli state and a Palestinian state, anything else will not work and will not last.

two state solution

Speaker should Resign

John Bercow should either resign or be removed from his position as Speaker of the House of Commons. The speaker should be impartial and should not make remarks that could cause embarrassment to the Government of the day.

John Bercow has made the most unbelievably political remarks for a Speaker and I cannot see how he can carry on. He is commenting on the immigration policy of another country. How can he stay as Speaker?

He should be forced to stand in Parliament and apologize for his remarks. The band-wagon around Donald Trump knows no bounds, even people in positions like John Bercow seem to want some of the action and grab headlines. What a pity The Speaker of the House of Commons couldn’t remain dignified and impartial, he has shamed Britain by being so ridiculous.

Judge was wrong!

Picture of Judge Robart

The judge that decided to halt President Trumps policy banning admittance to the US from 7 mainly Muslim countries was wrong.

The policy which he ruled illegal was passed by Congress and Congress gave the president “the unreviewable authority to suspend the admission of any class of visitor”. I may be simple-minded but to my way of thinking, if something is voted in by the representatives of the people, in a democracy that means that it becomes the policy.

The only way this should be debated is whether it is constitutional and this would have to be examined by the Supreme Court. If they find that it is unconstitutional then fine, but for a judge to second guess Congress is wrong.

It is all very well for people to be complaining about this policy and I understand why. I bet the people of France wish that their Government had taken strong actions to protect them, perhaps their security situation would be better than it is at the moment. I personally would welcome strong actions to protect Britain if the Government felt that it was necessary. As long as there are safeguards in place to ensure that the Government is not acting as a dictator.

Well said Nige

You have to see this video, it just shows how uncomfortable the truth can be sometimes. I have never voted UKIP and don’t believe I ever would but sometimes a politician comes along who just says it as it is, or as you think it; but would never actually say. What a shame he did not stay in the Conservative Party, it’s a real shame, the more politicians speak the truth the better.

The European Parliament should be ashamed of itself, it is totally undemocratic and heading toward massive failure. People will only be ruled in this way for so long and then it will all come crashing down.

Trump! What is all the fuss!!

The WhiteHouse

Airport Chaos??

Watching the news today, you would have thought that the U.S was about to declare itself a Nazi country or something.

” Donal Trump signs executive order, blah blah blah “

The only problem is, when you look at what President Trump actually tweeted, the story takes on a different feel.

Perhaps the media is partly to blame for all the hysteria surrounding this. The protesters should wait for clarification on what the order actually means. I have not heard one news correspondent state, with any clarity, what it really means.

As for the Labour Party in Britain, jumping on a bandwagon was always there forte, can you imagine the embarrassment of having to withdraw an invitation to Britain’s strongest ally at a time when we need the U.S more than ever. Thank God Labour is not in power and if this is anything to go by it will be a long time before they are!!
