I know it’s been a while… So lot’s to catch up on! So kettle on and click the link for some tunes BBR
World Cup, Brexit, Soulful Sundaes, to name but a few are the topic, we are going to cover. First up Brexit.. I saw my old mate Danny Dyer on Television, giving his opinion on Brexit, which went viral, and basically, I can’t help but agree with him at every turn. No matter what side of the argument you are on? Leave or Remain! Your not going to get what you want, and in the mist of it all is a great big mess? And Danny is right? Where is David Cameron! In France, with his trotters up! Darn right! but he is right… What a twat! David Cameron had the opportunity, as Prime Minister to go to Europe, and said.. We want, and if you don’t give us.. We will leave! And on the result of the Referendum, I have a feeling, he would have got us a great deal, and we would be having our cake and eat it! Instead, and I am going to say it, because Danny couldn’t on National Telly! We are Fucked!! Let’s not make any bones about it, we are in deep shit!
In the last 2 years since the referendum, We as a country have spent Billions, working out how we are going to get out? Without making the country bankrupt? Good luck with that.. Teresa! Now we all remember that famous £350 Million! Let’s for a minute, say it exists? The cheapest solution to the Irish Boarder Situation? Would Cost £25 Billion, Yep £25 Billion.. for a £350 million a year saving! You do the math! Some of the issue’s prior to the referendum was immigration.. That has dropped, mainly from Non-Europeans! and Europeans, has not only dropped, but people leaving the country has increased! mainly Europeans. One of the concerns of Brexit, is that immigrants, have been the backbone of the country for so many years, that the lack off, or the loss of, does not in-fact create more jobs for British people, because they were the jobs, that Brit’s didn’t want to do! Anyone fancy working 10 hours on a chicken farm, or picking fields in Kent, for 10 hours, on your hands and knees.. Hell No!
Everyone keeps telling me, about getting our boarders back, and control of trade! Sounds good.. But let’s take a look at that.. President Trump, is in the middle of a trade war, and We think that he will do us a favour, by giving us Tariff free access to his US Market? Is that ‘Putting America first‘? I think not, so I can’t see any sweet deals for us? And if there is… What does America have, that we can’t get cheaper, and quicker from Europe? Even with a new Tariff agreement.. After all we are going to get a good deal?
Our Boarders.. Like America, we can dictate, who we let into the country… Even with freedom of movement rules! I will explain… AT EVERY UK BOARDER THERE IS A SIGN! “We have the right to refuse entry into the UK… TO ANYONE”! We have control of our Boarders! WE CHOOSE NOT TO!! FACT!!
The final point from the referendum, was our Parliament being in control, and not a bunch of bureaucrats in Brussels.. Fair and interesting point! Have you ever watched our parliament? Nuff Said! And let look at some of those rules.. We know the bent Bananas was a joke! So how bad are these rules? And some of the counties having to suffer these rules! I can only talk from personal experience, but I am sure you will see my point, if you have travelled round Europe. Holland, Rotterdam, Spain, Germany, France, Italy, to name a few, each have their problems, but as far as I can see the laws, and rules that those Bureaucrats have put in place, seem to have done each of those countries as service, and each of them, have managed to negotiate favourable terms, while inside the EU!
I am going to leave this topic, for now, and I am sure over coming weeks we will no doubt have to revisit it, but I am praying that Prime Minister Dyer, get’s in and sorts this mess out.. and in his words.. ‘Soon As‘.
World Cup fever is upon us.. And I for one am loving every minute, it have been the only thing that has keep my eye off the Premier League transfer market.. (Come on West Ham, few more players in). But this World Cup, in Russia has been the first time I have been able to truly believe, we could actually win the thing! Fingers crossed, and not wanting to ‘jinx’ things I will leave the subject there for now… Save to say.. Come on England!!
Summer is here!

So why not come and join us for a day at the seaside, and some great music. Free entry throughout the Summer!
This week on the family front, hasn’t been great, NO! The wife is very much alive... But her Mother has been unwell, and it has put a strain on the family, as a whole. My wife is a little bundle of energy, as many of you know? But with hospital visits, and the worry, it does have its effect all round. I unlike most am very pragmatic, and to some very strong and capable. Which to a degree I am, I am a good businessman, and run a successful business, which I built from scratch. But there are days, that my wife puts me to shame! She has been exhausted, but each day, she gets up, and brushes her teeth, and gets ready for another day, of more unknown. Yes, there have been tears, and couple of nights of waking up, in her clothes.. Where I have pulled the covers, over her corpse! I have had to cope with a couple of ‘Bitch‘ moments, but I can take all that, because I look at my wife, with great pride. My admiration for how she has coped is immense, and I hate to say it… I am a lucky guy, to have such a loving & caring person by my side.. And if anyone tells her, they are a dead person!
You know what to do?
HOLLA AT ME!
