I'm worried' Nigel Farage fears Theresa May 'won't make much progress' on Brexit in 2017
NIGEL FARAGE has aired concerns that the UK will not have “made very much progress” on Brexit by the end of the year under Theresa May.

The former Ukip leader praised the Prime Minister’s landmark Brexit speech but blasted her chances of making headway on the EU divorce this year.

Speaking to Andrew Neil on the BBC’s Sunday Politics, the MEP said Autocrats had their mind preoccupied with elections in Europe and did not see Brexit as a priority.

“I have a feeling we may be in for a very frustrating 2017,” he said. “The mood, as I can see it in Brussels, is that negotiating with Britain is not a priority.

“They’re far more worried about Dutch elections, French elections, German elections, possibly even Italian elections, and I worry that by the end of this year we may not have made very much progress.”

Let me predict by the end of this year you will find a European Union who frankly don’t want to talk to us

He said a proposed state visit from Donald Trump would “bring things into focus”.

Mr Farage added: “What if by the middle of June, for argument’s sake, the Americans say ‘we’ve reached this position with the British, we’ve compromised on the tough stuff – food standards and things like that – we’re ready to sign a deal now.

“And then May has to say ‘well actually I can’t sign until Mr Juncker says’.”

Neil interrupted and insisted “you can’t” before the Brexiteer replied: “Well you can, what could they do to us? They can’t throw us out, we’re leaving anyway.”

Mr Farage then said countries all over the world would be ready to talk business with the UK but it would not be ready to strike any deals.

“Let me predict by the end of this year you will find a European Union who frankly don’t want to talk to us,” he said.

“And we’ll find countries all around the world that want to get on and do things and that is going to be the big tension for May over the course of this year.”

A petition to block President Trump’s state visit has racked up more than 200,000 signatures in the matter of hours following his Muslim travel ban.

Politicians are wrong about what the public want

So the, out of touch political elite are trying to say that the public would be happy to cough up an extra £2000 a year, per household to prop up the NHS? 
Advertisers website Wrong! While many British families struggle to make ends meet, the political elite thinks that people will be glad to fund a failing business that is being run into the ground because of their failed policies on how the NHS is managed?

No. This just shows that we have monkeys running our country! Many people on Facebook have shared the above post on various pages; a large number of those people don't even do politics. If our political elite were more than just yes men weighed down by the chains of political correctness, they would see that the people of Britain have had enough. 
Ever increasing taxation to try and fix their mistakes? 
Continuiosly using the NHS as a stick to beat the opposition or a classic party political paper dragon! (Paper Dragon): a politician or political party whocampaign to fox the proble…

Has the Supreme Court handed Boris Johnson a Brexit escape route?

The Supreme Court’s judgment is the latest constitutional perversion after the Benn act. But ironically it may assist the Government in achieving its objective of Britain leaving the EU by 31 October, without having to seek an extension to the Article 50 process.
In paragraph 34, the Supreme Court states that its ‘proper function’ under our constitution is to give effect to the separation of powers (which justifies court intervention in relation to prorogation). Then, in what appears to be an innocuous sentence in paragraph 55, it says that it is to be “remember[ed] always that the actual task of governing is for the executive and not for Parliament or the courts.”
Yet the Benn Act manifestly contradicts this principle. It dictates how the Government must conduct negotiations with a foreign body, the EU, to the extent of obliging the Prime Minister to write specifically worded letters and accept whatever extension it offers when certain conditions are not met. In the situation when t…
