THE NO DEAL CHANCELLOR: ‘We DON’T need a trade deal with the EU’ says Rishi Sunak

BRITAIN’s brand spanking new Chancellor claimed the country doesn’t need a trade deal with the EU earlier this month.

Rishi Sunak made the comments earlier this month when he was still in his post of chief secretary to the Treasury.

He told Sky’s Burley@Breakfast: “While the Government wants such a deal, there are other options if one is not secured” 

Remainer Kay Burley told the Chancellor “We need to do a trade deal with the EU” he hit back: “We don’t need to.”

“We have left. There are lots of other ways that countries trade with each other.” Mentioning the Canada style deal.

He added that Britain should not “follow all of their rules” .

“We don’t want to be a rule follower; the EU referendum showed the public did not want alignment.”

THE TORIES CALL HIM A RISING STAR.. BUT JUST WHO IS RISHI SUNAK? 

BRITAIN has a new chancellor and he’s a Brexiteer called Rishi Sunak, the man who has been a rising star of The Conservative Party since he entered mainstream politics five years ago.

Sunak is the MP for Richmond in Yorkshire and was Mr quick to establish himself as a free thinker.

The Brexiteer produced a report on the merits of introducing free ports after leaving the European Union, a tax-break concept that Prime Minister Boris Johnson cherry-picked for his own leadership campaign.

Mr Sunak’s decision, along with high-flying colleagues Oliver Dowden and Robert Jenrick, to jointly back Mr Johnson during the summer leadership contest was seen as a major win for the former London mayor’s campaign, proving he had the young blood of the party on-board.

The trio wrote at the time: “Beyond Brexit, Boris Johnson is one of life’s optimists and can help us recapture a sense of excitement and hope about what we Conservatives can do for Britain.”

The PM was quick to reward Mr Sunak’s loyalty, making him chief secretary to the Treasury after entering Downing Street in July.

The level of trust placed in the Oxford University graduate was further demonstrated after Sajid Javid turned down the job of chancellor in the PM’s first post-Brexit reshuffle of his Cabinet.

It was Mr Sunak who was given the nod and promoted to one of the great offices of state in Mr Javid’s stead on Thursday.

At the age of 39, he misses out on being the youngest chancellor of the past century by just a single year – George Osborne was 38 when he took charge of the Treasury in 2010.

The eldest of three children and born into what he dubbed an “NHS family”, Mr Sunak’s father was a GP and his mother ran her own pharmacy, according to the biography on his MP website.

His grandparents were born in India and emigrated to the UK from East Africa in the 1960s.

Before entering politics, he had a successful business career, working as an analyst for investment bank Goldman Sachs before going on to work in hedge and investment fund management.

The private school-educated politician, explaining his motivation for getting involved with politics, said: “From working in my mum’s tiny chemist shop to my experience building large businesses, I have seen first-hand how politicians should support free enterprise and innovation to ensure our future prosperity.”

Married with two daughters, he met wife Akshata while studying at Stanford University in the US.

The Southampton-raised Cabinet minister lists his hobbies as keeping fit, playing cricket and football and watching films.

As a Hindu, he takes his Commons oath on the Bhagavad Gita, a sacred Sanskrit text.

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…
