Never Mind The Scallops

Well, don't mind them too much, anyway.

200 miles, or to the median line. That would solve an awful lot. Although the French fishermen do have a point, but it is a point to be made to their own Government.

200 miles, or the median line. If we had a British Government that had any idea what it was doing, then that would not even be a question.

But we do not. Instead, we have Theresa May traipsing around Africa and addressing its amused inhabitants in the language of her girlhood. 

The Commonwealth organises student exchanges and a sports festival, and long may it continue to do so. But economically and strategically, while Africa is vital, the Commonwealth is irrelevant.

The key to Africa is bilateral relations with China and with France. Just as the key to post-Brexit prosperity in general is deals with the BRICS countries, and integration into the Belt and Road Initiative.

Ask them in Africa. They would tell you. But you won't. It would never occur to you to ask them anything.

When it is not the Commonwealth, then it is "the Anglopshere", which is not a real thing at all.

It is the kind of thing that only children believe, that countries are "friends" or even "family" because of nothing more than a common language, or relatively similar institutions due to a distant common origin.

Donald Trump is extremely unusual among Americans in that one of his parents was born in the United Kingdom. But he has just screwed over Canada for the sake of Mexico, because he has followed the money.

As should we. We need deals with the BRICS countries. We need integration into the Belt and Road Initiative. And we need the restoration of our historic fishing rights of 200 miles, or to the median line.

Therefore, we need our people to hold the balance of power in the coming hung Parliament. I need £10,000 in order to stand for Parliament with any realistic chance of winning.
