Desperate Theresa May begs EU leaders for help with Brexit in New Year charm offensive

DESPERATE Theresa May will launch a last-ditch lobbying campaign over New Year as she begs EU leaders to improve the Brexit deal.

The PM has admitted she has “work to do” to get the withdrawal agreement through Parliament next month.

She is spending this week phoning European leaders asking them to sign off on changes to the deal which will ensure the hated “Irish backstop” doesn’t tie Britain to the EU forever.

Mrs May is counting on securing a legal assurance that the backstop would be time-limited if it ever came into force.

Otherwise, the UK would risk being permanently trapped in the customs union – stopping us from cutting trade deals with other countries around the world.

The PM has already spent some of the Christmas period talking to EU leaders and trying to make progress, her spokesman said today.

No10 said Mrs May was seeking “legal and political assurances” on the backstop ahead of the Commons debate which starts next week.

The spokesman added that the PM has “been in contact with European leaders and that will continue in the lead up to the vote”.

And she continued: “Her focus is certainly on getting the assurances that MPs want ahead of that vote taking place. There is still work to do and talks will continue.”

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…
