If there is anything to worry about for Boris, it's Farage creeping up 11.11.2019
As the UK is being bashed about with overwhelming rain and biblical floods, there are many who believe that it almost reflects the political devastation that pervades. Everyone is gearing up for elections, but the problem seems to be that there is no Opposition to the Conservative leader, Boris Johnson. According to surveys, he may have opened up a 17-point lead over his Labour rival, Jeremy Corbyn, who is falling far behind. Indeed, if there is anything to worry about, it could be that competition is only creeping up from the Far Right, the Brexit Party under the maverick leader, Nigel Farage. So much so that some might want to dissuade Mr Farage from opposing the Conservatives, as he may end up dividing the votes, leading to a win by Labour by default. Is the Brexit Party really so popular? Or is it just that it is the only party with a radically clear agenda and among those who want to leave the EU, it is immensely popular. But can Boris actually get the majority that he craves so much in Parliament? ...

With polls in UK, will Brexit vote remain binding? Or not as such? 9.11.2019
"So many questions and none to do With the ultimate meaning of life. Why didn"t Shah Jahan build the Taj For his concubines instead of his wife? Why does steam come off scrambled eggs Only when they are moved from the fire? And the edges of shirts get creased in the wash? What"s the difference between love and desire? No answers to these questioning prayers From the God, who created all things — Is bewilderment my dharma or fate? — Look, Science grins from the wings" From Robins Aren"t Round by Bachchoo Curiouser and curiouser!" Cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English)." Speaking good English has never been my central concern as what"s good enough for Alice is good enough for me. As an immigrant who has spent many years of my short and happy life in Britain, I claim exemption from what Queen Elizabeth II or the present leader of the House of Commons, Jacob Rees-Mogg, would consider ...

Will December 12 polls spell a saner future for UK? 4.11.2019
The past fortnight has seen yet more twists and turns in the Brexit saga. The first was the agreement of the United Kingdom and the European Union on an exit deal. This was no surprise. Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson simply reverted to an arrangement that the EU had originally offered the former Prime Minister, Theresa May, which she had rejected. It involves Northern Ireland remaining in the EU customs union and single market — to preserve the soft border with the Republic of Ireland — and allowing the rest of the UK, the island of Great Britain, to leave. The practical effect is to place Northern Ireland, an integral part of the UK, under a different legal and regulatory regime from the rest of the country. More surprising was that this arrangement was agreed, in principle, by the House of Commons, where the Conservatives are a minority, by a narrow majority. Yet despite this victory — something which had eluded his predecessor — Mr Johnson decided instead to seek an ...

British MPs vote in favour of holding general elections on December 12 30.10.2019
London: British MPs, on Tuesday, voted in favour of holding general elections on December 12 following Prime Minister Boris Johnson's fourth bid to force an early poll, a day after a similar attempt was rejected by the leaders as the European Union further extended the Brexit deadline until January 31. The House of Commons approved the bill by a margin of 430 to 20, paving the way for the general election -- the first in December since 1923. The UK PM can only hold an early election with the support of MPs. The prospect of an election became more and more likely after the European Union (EU) had agreed on a three-month extension to the October 31 Brexit deadline. This meant Johnson's "do or die" pledge to leave the economic bloc by Halloween was effectively dead and he was determined to push through an early poll to try and change his current minority figures in Parliament. After three failed attempts previously, Johnson's succeeded in holding the snap poll as he required only a ...
