THE GREAT CLAWBACK

@HelenP3617
Boris Johnson has just told Parliament that the UK Government will be taking control of all of Scotland’s waters under his proposed Deal.
Sounds like the #WithdrawalAgreementBill is as much about clawing powers back from the devolved nations as it is from the EU #indyref2020

So much for the will of the NORTH British people.

THANKS, NAD…

Well, it’s just as well none of the Tory Party members would ever consider behaving in such a rowdy boorish manner.  They have a reputation for sitting quietly and listening carefully to every argument.

Don’t they?

Whatever next, you might ask. Maybe one of the SNP hooligans will shout something typically Scottish and tasteless like “you could commit suicide”?

But quite apart from that, Nadine, possibly for the first time in your long career, you have hit a nail on the head.

The SNP does have zero power in your parliament, Nadine.

And yes, that’s frustrating, especially after being promised so much in 2014. You know… “lead us don’t leave us”; “broad shoulders”; “partnership of equals”; “the most powerful devolved government in the world”; Better Together”.

It’s kinda cute that the people who were trying to see “our united kingdom” appear to have forgotten about Wales and Northern Ireland.  That should have been hint enough.

Especially when they really do care about the likelihood that the powers the Brits have clawed back may mean that our land could be fracked against our will, our ambitious targets for cleaning up the air could be discarded; we could be forced to accept farming conditions that we don’t want with chlorinated chicken and hormone-fed beef and that our NHS could be semi-privatised and end up in the same sort of unholy mess that yours is in.

I didn’t really know much about Dorries until I read that Tweet, but I just checked out her Wikipedia page and it is a catalogue of comedy.  Enjoy.
