Lord Kinnock, universally famous for being able to talk for an hour and not say anything, has raised a threat in the House of Lords to stop Britain leaving the European Union. Why?
I believe because he receives an annual pension from the EU after serving a period as a commissioner.
His wife, who served, must also receive some benefit.
No wonder the parasitic elite voted en bloc to remain in the EU, hoping that one day they may be lucky enough to be on the payroll.
There are now talks that Britain should foot the bill for the thousands of Eurocrats having been employed by the EU.
Yet the Commission hired them in the first place.
I suspect a bitter war will emerge on this issue.
Kinnock may have unwittingly opened up contentious views about the viability of the House of Lords, often regarded as an expensive old boys’ club, achieving nothing of substance.
On the face of it, our Prime Minister has inherited a can of worms to sort out.
Immigration, border controls, increasing terrorism, deportation of undesirables, Brexit, upholding democratic rights of the people, reviewing the honours system, the House of Lords (in one year David Cameron created 117 new peers – friends and cronies), the judiciary and its sentencing, and car tax (which is a shambles).
The list is endless – all inherited from past government weaknesses and mishandling.
But I am positive the lady can handle it.
