Continuing his long running radio show, with a daily dose of Brexit bashing, he was left a bit confused how right-wing (doublespeak for ‘fascist’) press (aka Daily Fail, Torygraph etc) have forgiven the Chancellor Phil Hand-me-down for a past litany of political land mines. All because he set aside 3 billion squids for a Brexit ‘no deal’.
James doesn’t understand why this is a cause for celebration and said the following which I quote:
“What did Philip Hammond do yesterday to get right-wing newspapers onside? Answer – he put aside £3bn for the possibility of a no deal Brexit, something upon which everybody with an informed opinion agrees is going to be a disaster.”
He then went on to say…
You could today be forgiven for thinking that you’ve woken up in a parallel universe, £3bn.”
…and this further gem…
“You can stick this on a t-shirt if you want or even the side of a bus, why can’t we take the money that we’re spending on Brexit, and give it all to the NHS?”
Whoa …..hold yer horses Einstein O’Brien. A £3 billion contingency cost plus WTO tariff rules if no deal is reached. According to the head of WTO is a 5 billion cost to UK exporters and 9 billion charged to importers. Net 4 billion ‘profit’ for the Treasury. Ignore the 9 billion since the Treasury will probably pay it back to consumers anyway. So that’s a cost of 3 billion contingency plus 5 billion to the exporters. A total cost of 8 billion to the Government. That sounds like a bargain even if it ends up costing a few billion more than that. Better than the 40 to 100 billion the EU is currently demanding with menaces.
O’Blarney must have been in the retard (sorry..remedial) maths class at his private school if he thinks 40 billion plus pounds is a preferable option. Remember cunters, J.O.B is the one with an “informed opinion”. However, contrary to his grandiose self belief, his nous is looking a bit tatty around the edges, in fact, it looks positively threadbare like his barnet these days…all that head scratching post-Brexit maybe? Plebs, thickos, racists….voted leave….how?… why? …
He should be doing a little Oirish jig, since the country he claims to love, will be saved from any further rack and ruin by the Dick Turpins of the EU – if Mavis May does not fold like a cheap suit – to their highway robbery.
Everyday, post-referendum has been an opportunity for him to pollute the airwaves, bitching like a two bob whore who got short-changed by a punter. In his ideological world, he’s still in his student days at the LSE debating society where if he repeated himself often enough he got to be have his way. He has honed that skill since those days to always having the last snidey word on the radio. All ‘”ifs” and “buts” interjected like rapid machine gun fire to cut down all dissenting callers voices. A smug, holier than thou, know it all.
On Brexit, the economic price is irrelevant to him, just so long as we stay a prize hostage to the bandits of the corrupt EU. As for living in a parallel universe, he is firmly stuck in a Noel Edmond’s-esque world where any ‘Deal’ is better than ‘No deal’, even if the box Britain gets handed by the EU bankers at the end is as empty as Junker the drunker’s wine cellar after he has pulled an all nighter.
O’Blarney’s ‘informed opinion’ …fuck it….who needs it?
