Riding The Tiger

We are not getting out of the European Union of TTIP and CETA only to join the Trans-Pacific Partnership instead. But we need to acknowledge that this is indeed Asia's century, and Africa's, and Latin America's. So China locks up the President of Interpol? Then that is because it can.

All the more reason for a clean Brexit, call it "No Deal" if you will, leading to trade deals with the BRICS countries even while remaining thoroughly critical of all five of their present governments, including the one that is, alas, about to be elected in Brazil. 

Within that, we need the integration into the Belt and Road Initiative of all four parts of the United Kingdom, of all nine English regions, of all of the Crown Dependencies, and of all of the British Overseas Territories. In some way, all 99 lieutenancy areas, including County Durham, need to be so integrated.

We need withdrawal from NATO, which commits us to the defence of Turkish Islamists and of Eastern European neo-Nazis while charging us two per cent of our Gross Domestic Product for the privilege.

We need bilateral peace treaties with all other European countries, including Russia. We need bilateral peace treaties with the United States and with Canada. And we need peace treaties with the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation and with the Collective Security Treaty Organisation.

Another hung Parliament is coming, and our people need to hold the balance of power in it. My crowdfunding page is here, or email for other options. That address accepts PayPal.
