Draw, Fight and Dance our credibility away!

imagesC9S50GLUAccording to this news report, while British fishermen were getting into difficulty off the French coast in their attempt to fish for scallops despite a lack of an agreement with the French fishermen, David Lidington has been explaining in no uncertain terms to French Businessmen that the proposal to leave the EU put out by Theresa May in July is set in stone and it is too late to go back to the drawing board. What he is clearly hoping for is that the views of the Euro-sceptics in the Conservative Party who have stated very publicly that they want the Cabinet to go back to the drawing board will not have been picked up by these same French business leaders because they have been distracted by the potential loss of scallops. The rest of us are in any case distracted by the attempts by Theresa May to dance in Cape Town in a manner that looks credible in front of school children. The comments by Michael Gove that the French Police should protect the British Fisherman even though the conflict is happening outside French coastal waters and therefore in International waters seems to miss the point that they are outside the French Police’s jurisdiction. What is needed now is some boats from the UK Navy and then some from the French Navy and before we have got to the end of the week no doubt we will be at war with our nearest European Ally who we are trying to strike an agreement with, although David Lidington is keen to make it look like there is no agreement to be had unless it is on the terms set out by the lady trying to look credible in Africa.

Meanwhile for the rest of us the credibility of the whole Parliament is starting to lose its traction, unless of course as it returns next week to  work for a few days before a three week break to hold party conferences, that it manages to come up with a solution for all of these issues apart perhaps from a dance routine!
