Trump aide John Bolton says Brexit is a ‘triumph of democracy’ and will boost Britain on the world stage

DONALD Trump’s top aide John Bolton has branded Brexit a chance for the UK to become a “strong and independent country”.

The US National Security Adviser said Trump was a supporter of Britain leaving the EU and believed it would have a positive impact on the world.

Speaking to the Telegraph on the eve of Trump’s state visit next week, Bolton said: “The US preference is for Britain to follow the course of what the people asked for and leave the EU.

“It is a lesson for everyone in the triumph of democracy.

“As a separate nation again, Britain’s impact on the world  has the prospect of being even greater.

“I think it will help us in Nato in particular to have another strong and independent country that will help Nato to  be more effective, and that has to be a plus.”

Bolton, an ex-US Ambassador to the UN and veteran of the Reagan and George W Bush Republican administrations, added: “From our perspective, Britain’s role is not simply as a European power. Britain is a world power.”

Bolton would not say who supported in the Tory leadership contest, but said like Trump, he was an admirer of Boris Johnson.

Earlier he said Trump was a “strong supporter of Brexit” and can’t wait to do a trade deal with Britain after it leaves.

He said: “He has been a strong supporter of Brexit and I think he does look forward to negotiating with a fully independent Britain outside the European Union.”

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…
