Labour can be in NATO and have Nucelar weopons or surrender with Corbyn and its time to decide

Well that's done it. I don't think the media has fully realise what Jeremy Corbyn has just done - because I haven't heard it from any of the commentators yet.

Here's the thing the UK holds nuclear weapons as a deterrent against Nuclear attack or Nuclear black mail by other states or actors.

That deterrent only works if your enemies think you'll use it.

Its quite clear that if the phone rang and the chief of the defence staff phoned Prime Minister Corby to say a nation had launched a massive nuclear attack against the UK that Mr Corbyn wouldn't authorise a reprisal. ( Or at least the attacker could reasonably expect this ).

That means Trident is useless if Corbuyn is PM - regardless of if you renew it or keep it. The Labour party can pretend otherwise and I'm sure some of the cowardly New Labour types will try to do this.

Also ... NATO is a Nuclear Alliance. France and the United States back every other member with their Nuclear weapons - as currently does the UK. If a Corbyn administration won't use the UK's few where the morality on relying on the US to use theirs and trade US Cities defending UK cities ? Are US Trident submarines more moral than UK ones ?

Clearly Corbyn can't stay in NATO.

There are plenty of people in Labour who said they were committed to NATO and the UK's nuclear deterrent. There is almost no more important policy.

Those people must now either depose Corbyn or leave Labour, and if they want to avoid looking like Claire Short then they don't have much time to decide in.

If Corbyn wins then politics will change

Since its been summer I've been keeping away from much of the news, so have only heard second hand accounts of Jeremy Corbyn.

Many of those are dire predictions of this  or that ( resignations, coups, years in the wilderness etc). Almost all of them, I would venture, will be wrong.

Since the Conservative party abandoned defending principle under Cameron, it has also given up educating the electorate. This has left a window of opportunity for the left to propose a radical agenda and be able to rely on the electorate nativity and ignorance to give it a chance. The left were clearly inspired by Syriaza in Greece - though as with all left wing projects the outcome has not been good for the people.

So here are my predictions:

1) Corbyn will shore up Labour's hemorrhaging of support to UKIP ( unless he does so really stupid things with his friends in the IRA, HAMAS, ISIL etc that call into question his patriotism ). The working class's beef has been with career politicians and New Labour types.
2) The EU referendum is now wide open - whilst the establishment will try to tie Labour into the UK surrender part group - Corbyn may allow a free vote or even commit against the EU.
3) The US will be alarmed - very alarmed ( or at least those not working for the direct political team of the current administration will be - as lets face it they are working against the US also ).
4) The Lib Dems have their life raft - if their poll numbers pick up they could get some defections from Labour.
5) Most of the Labour party will shortly go through its Stockholm process with the new hard left/Union administration and go native. Socialists are all about suspending the power of thought and following the dear leader - they will fall into line.
6) Finally the right will realise its needs to defend capitalism rather than just triangulate to fool weak minded voters with tip bits of left wing policies.

Any more ? ( Or will it be Yvette ? )

The BBC needs to get over the Labour leadership contest.

Now I know all those left wing bigots at the BBC are very anxious about about the Labour party leadership election, but they need to try and hide their concern and bias a bit better than they have managed today.
After all they need to con the Conservatives into renewing their charter....

What the number of UKIP peers appointed tells you about Cameron if you are still a Conservative

Natural justice required that a number of UKIP peers be appointed , along with the other opposition peers.

Remember David Cameron's clearly false protestations about only wanting a pre-election debate if the Greens were invited. Suddenly its all naked power politics and no principle.

Well if you have been a Conservative and you are one of those who is still labouring under the delusion that David Cameron is actually 'negotiating' on the EU for 'a better deal' then there just no place to hide from your naked gullibility.

The man's a rat- the the new peers list shows it quite clearly.

The Conservative party is lost and quite frankly those who still are members who don't support the EU superstate project and wilfully deceiving themselves.

PS Back from my Summer break.

Airport VAT rip off ? What about ISAs and Pensions then ?

Its Summer and the government has to play the headlines. A bit of obvious popularism has arisen in that air side shops in airports get VAT of their shopping, but charge customers similar or the same prices anyway. Hence the tax break doesn't get passed on to the consumer.

Conservative ministers are making a great song and dance of  instructing retailers to pass on the break ( did that knock Calais out of the headlines for a bit - great ).

But what about the tax breaks for ISAs and Pensions taht seem to just subsadise poor perforance by banks and finaicial instituions ?

I guess George won't be so keen on dealing with those ....

The Conservative party moves yet further from God

From the we told you so news desk

It surely doesn't take much imagination to see what the left will get up to when the so called Conservative party behaves like this.

Labour deserves Corbyn to win

Labour still haven't quite figured out what happened to them in Scotland.

Well they are about to get another symptom of their underlying malady from their leadership election ( if the polls are to be relied upon ).

In Scotland Labour used implied dog whilst anglophobic hate to push for devolution - thinking they would be the beneficiaries and the voters would dumbly respond the thinly disguised hate message as they associate English and Tory and thought that was all the politicking they would ever need.

The flaw was that having made the anti-Tory, anti-English hate campaign they had no defence when someone claiming to be even more Scottish ( ie anti-English anti-Tory ) than them painted them as Red-Tories they had no defence and they had already abandoned rational politics for knee jerk nationalism.

Now their language and rhetoric used to complain about Austerity ( ie stopping today's generation from stealing the future of the next generation ) set up no understanding of the underlying issues. The quotes to the right of this blog page from Denis Healey and Jim Callaghan have been truly forgotten. No attempt has been made to educate or argue with the infantile Labour membership ( Sorry Liz Kendal you are far too late ).

Now the hard left - friends of terrorist murders and our enemies ( just look who the hard left's candidate shakes hands with ) - stand at the gates of the Labour party and looks like it will cease power.

Well its been coming ever since Labour abdicated reasoned debate and instead used the poison of hate and irrational argument to motivate its base.

The rest of us will now have to deal with the results.

Who pays for the alarmists' mistakes

This article makes a key point about climate alarmism - asking who gets held responsible ?

Worth a read.

One aspect of debt - if repayment is in question

Some time ago I heard a joke that tells the story of how hard it is to deal in a certain part of the world ( not Greece I might add ). It goes like this:

A banker, whose bank has just made a large loan to a foreign company gets a phone call from an officer of that company. It goes like this:

    Client - "Hello I'm phoning to reduce the interest rate on the large loan issued yesterday"

    Banker - "But yesterday we signed a contract and agreed the rate !"

    Client - "But yesterday I don't have your money ...."
The point is clear and is perhaps what's making the next step in the Greek debt tragedy so difficult.
