We are not leaving!


Our political representatives have been conniving and scheming not to leave the EU on the March 29 or ever since the Referendum. This past week they got 99% of the way there. Just one more week and they will tell us they need a short extension, to May or June, if the House votes for May's twice rejected deal but is she does not get the result, then, they will tell us they want at least another year....

Failing Grayling v.3


Watch this space. If we don't leave on the 29th, then Grayling's deal with the ferry companies will cost another £20 million.


Geoffrey Cox, 49p is all his worth


Attorney General Geoffrey Cox managed to forget, for six months, the thousands of pounds in rent from his London flat in his back pocket. He apologised to Parliamentary authorities for not registering the money as income. Cox once earned £800,000 in a single year for his work as a criminal barrister - but he still claimed 49p in expenses to pay for a pint of milk. Let's hope he is not claiming for his acting lessons - he clearly thinks he's Richard Burton.

David Steel Suspended from Lib-Dems


Lord Steel, under questioning told the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse on 13th March that having discussed child abuse in Rochdale with slimy Cyril Smith he assumed that Smith did it but Steel didn't think it was anything to do with him.

The Scottish Liberal Democrat Zombies have met and agreed that an investigation is needed. What on earth is there to investigate?

Boris the Buffoon spaffing again


"One comment I would make is that I think an awful lot of the money, an awful lot of police time, now goes into these historic offences and all this malarkey - £60m I saw was being spaffed up the wall on some investigation into historic child abuse and all this kind of thing." on LBC

An email sent to the Last Leg, suggested that the world would be a better place if Stanley Johnson had spaffed Boris up the wall.

Multiple Sclerosis makes MP appeal against speeding sentence.


Fiona Onasanya went to the Court of Appeal, using her solicitor skills to tell the Court that the judge at her speeding trial 'got it wrong'. She was innocent! The three judges listening to her complaints ruled that the judge at the original trial was a good ol' boy and she was wasting her time or rather everybody else's time. She wanted a full appeal case and the judges said get lost. The Labour party have started 'recall' proceeding against her.

Note: If she is forced out via a by-election then she will be the first MP to fall foul of the 2016 Recall Act. (see 29/01. and 26/02. below for earlier episodes of the Onasanya saga.

Failing Grayling V.2


Transport secretary, Chris Grayling, is like a well known piece of software that's full of bugs and requires updating on a daily basis. He is by every measure a bumbling idiot. His latest achievement, carrying out a secret franchising process with ferry companies, one with no boats, post-Brexit, and leaving the tax-payer liable to a court settlement for Eurotunnel of £33m. Why, because cunning Chris chose not to invite them to the tending party.

Note: Chris still has Trembling Theresa's confidence.

Don and Un


North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met with US President Donald Trump in Hanoi to chat about nuclear weapons. Kim wanted all the sanctions imposed in 2016 removed before he would give up a third of his nuclear arsenal. Trump wanted all the nukes gone before lifting sanctions. No deal! The press called it a summit, it was rather a meeting of loons, dangerous looms - we are all doomed.

Note: Un has executed at least 70 members of his own government and the idiot Don called him a great man.


Labour now want a second referendum


Finally, Labour have stopped being dishonest about what they really want. The majority of MPs do not want to leave the EU, their behaviour over the last two years has been hopeless. The only way they can save themselves from further embarrassment is to pray for an extension to Article 50, to vote for a second referendum and hope that the populace vote to stay in the EU - on the grounds that our elected parliamentarians are too useless to manage leaving the EU.

Fiona Onasanya is OUT


Fiona Onasanya, former Labour MP, jailed for lying about speeding was released from prison after only one month of her three month prison sentence. Fiona was paid £6,400 whilst inside - nice work if you can get it.



Thus far 8 Labour MPs have defected and 3 Tory MPs have joined them in something called the Independent Group. They have a website.

Update: Another one left but says he's not joining the Independent Group - nobody cares mate.

Jihadi bad news, citizenship revoked


Home Secretary, Savid Javid has written to the parents of jihadi bride Shamima Begum informing them that their daughters British citizenship has been revoked - that's the end of that then. Does that mean that all the other jihadi Brits, currently on their way back here, will be told they can't come in? Watch this space!

Update 20/02/19: Apparently, the 'bride's' mum comes from Bangladesh and Savid thinks she should go there. Bangladesh told him to get lost.


Orwell lives in Romford


Investigatory PowersThe media were all over the story of Shamima Begum, the IS bride who is not enjoying life on the wild side anymore and wants to come home and have her baby on the NHS - tough. Oddly, the media failed to notice the police testing their facial recognition tech. at Romford Station. The Investigatory Powers Act allows them to do this, so they are.  Last week, people were being stopped, searched, made to show ID - and one innocent man was fined after covering his face and standing up for his rights - according to Big Brother Watch?

Amber Rudd: Honesty at last


The work and pensions secretary said she was "absolutely clear there were challenges with the initial roll-out" of Universal Credit and that the difficulty in accessing money was "one of the causes" of the rise in the use of food banks. The Trussell Trust says that in areas where UB is introduced food bank use goes up by 50%.

Failing Grayling


Chris Grayling, Transport Secretary, was asked in the Commons how much he had spent on his 'no ferries' deal with Seaborne — “nothing”, said he. This was all very curious because National Audit Office report said that £800,000 had been spent on consultants. And would there be any legal fees to come now that Grayling (11/01/19) had pulled the plug on his deal with Seaborne Freight — Failing Grayling was not the person to ask.

Multiple Sclerosis makes MP lie about speeding


Solicitor and MP (but not for long) Fiona Onasanya had denied being behind the wheel when her car was spotted being driven at 41mph in a 30mph zone, in July 2017. She said her lodger was behind the wheel but it turns out he was not even in the country in July 2017.

The Peterborough MP was thrown out of the Labour Party after being convicted of perverting the course of justice. The court heard that Onasanya was texting as well as speeding. She blamed her behaviour on multiple sclerosis. The judge, unimpressed, decided to lock her up and throw away the key - well, for three months anyway. Her brother then stepped in to take the rap for her and the judge, unimpressed again, gave him ten months (Festus was a serial speeder).

May loses Brexit vote


Mrs May's EU Withdrawal Deal was voted down in the Commons.

MPs voted by 432 votes to 202 to reject the deal, which sets out the terms of Britain's exit from the EU on 29 March.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has now tabled a vote of no confidence in the government. This will be debated on Wedsnesday 16/01/19.

Will it trigger a general election - watch this space?

Update: 16/01/19 Corbyn's no confidence vote went nowhere.


Bad start to the year for Transport minister Grayling


Seaborne Freight was awarded a £13.8m contract to operate freight ferries from Ramsgate to the Belgian port of Ostend if the UK leaves the EU without a deal - but it does not have any boats - How did that happen Mr Grayling?
