China is now demanding the USA stop its provocative action in the China Sea….Strange how when its the USA its provocative but when they do it its not, and infact they are insulted at the mere thought of it.
The USS John McCain entered into the South China Sea waters without their permission says China, but the sea does not belong to China and so long as the other nations agree then it is has the right to be there.
Well I say carry on America as the bully boys need to be stopped in their tracks. They are stripping the South China Sea of its minerals and are plundering it for the oil and gas supplies that are there. It is the estimated size of Texas.
China has ignored the rights of all the other nations and they are making it hard for people to even fish as it is frightening them off. People are losing their livelihoods and their way of life at this rate.
The Chinese military claimed the US has ‘frequently’ sent warships to the South China Sea to ‘show off its force and severely infringe upon China’s sovereignty and security interests’. The spokesperson said it would take all necessary measures to resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and security and to maintain peace and stability in the region. (Daily Mail).
If China are involved then there is no peace and stability in the region and I do feel so sorry for those countries surrounding the South China Sea as eventually their lands will be eyed up.
Currently the stripping of the sea is nothing more than China preparing itself and its weapons as it is still gazing at Taiwan but it won’t be a gaze much longer. If they have unlimited supplies for vehicles that by rights belong to all the nations whose land borders with the sea then it gives them an advantage, an unfair advantage but China won’t look at it that way.
After all what has it done about the 3 million Chinese Muslims it has interned in their concentration camps? Nothing. The world seems to stop short when it comes to China but people are dying in the far east version of concentration camps and the only difference is that it is not Jews this time but Muslims. Forced abortions, sterilisations, slave labour for multi-national companies and deaths …..what is the world doing about that? Todate Nothing….and that is why China is getting away with everything as no one is stopping them.
If they don’t care about their own people what on earth would they do with those countries they are gazing over with occupational desires in their eyes. The dragon is no longer sleeping……and its roar will be terrifying.
When people are suffering from job losses or the fear of job losses, now is not the right time to award the MPs a £3,300 pay rise. Its a bit of a slap in the face and I agree with the Business Secretary who says it is inappropriate.
Don’t forget that they also get an increase for the “staff” too and how many do you think employ a least one family member? All money into the family household pot….no bad when you can get it.
Saying no will go a long way with people and it will show that MPs do not work for themselves, but care what the people think but somehow I don’t think they will turn it down.
Whilst I agree to donating the money what about next years? The MPs need to turn it down collectively and keep turning it down as the country cannot afford it, and if there is money going why not put it to those key workers who actually went out to work and carried on working….unlike the majority of MPs who are still at home. Thankfully my MP got on the train and off to Parliament he went as he knew that he needed to be seen to be working so well done Andy Carter.
We cannot in times like this allow the quite considerable sum to be awarded and if necessary a petition must be started to stop this annual farce. I mean take the likes of Jess Phillips…or Ian Blackford their annual expenses are over £200k plus…can they really justify that? To some MPs I should imagine that the privilege of serving your country ahs been replaced to serving themselves especially and its wrong. If you take the average cost of £250k (which is generously low for their expenses and pay but I decided to err on the side of caution) for the MPs overall that is 650 x £250k … is £162.5 million. every year and growing. The £3300 pay raise is another £2.1 million. This just cannot go on and to expect people to be happy about this is not something that will happen. Don’t forget they have the most generous holidays too……
By the way this is not including their Lordships. There are 800 of them and when back in session will claim £330 a day which for a 5 day week has the potential to cost us another £47 million if you put them on a 36 week working week as lets face it, they are generous with awarding themselves holidays. During lockdown they are claiming half that and some bless them are said to be struggling on the £165 a day…that’s tax free by the way…. and some have actually asked for a hardship fund. Yep I know how ridiculous is that…it seems that they are struggling on what is £800 a week…tax free. My heart bleeds for them but any hardship funds need to go to those who deserve it, and their Lordships certainly don’t.
Now all of these costs will not include the cost of the building, the staff in the building and the cost of running it and this democracy lark is not cheap, but what it does show is that they are already costing too much, and instead of having their hands out grasping yet again maybe it is about time they put back into the country instead of taking out…..
Don’t forget they get extra for sitting on committees and those lovely trips that when this pandemic is over they will be falling over themselves to get on one….ALL TAX FREE and paid for.
I must admit I don’t read her newspapers pieces often as she is the MP for Warrington North via Islington infact mainly Islington and this seat was a gift from her kindly Uncle Corbyn. Infact she is missing in action so many times I am surprised that people actually ever get to see her and basically she stands for everything I dislike but even I must admit to nearly spitting out my cup of Assam this morning when I read her post.
Charlotte Nichols was parachuted into the Labour election due to being a chum of Corbyn’s and sadly the North is stuck with her until they come to their senses and vote her out, and every now and again she stands what I can only describe as size 15 feet in it….
Her latest gripe is the Peerage for one Claire Fox of the Brexit Party. Now don’t get me wrong defending the IRA makes her the sort of person I would have to disinfect my hands after meeting, but for Ms Nichols to say “Claire Fox’s introduction to the Lords today is an insult to Warrington,” She is as usual blaming the Conservatives but Ms Fox was not put forward by the Tories but hey don’t let the truth get in the way of trying to find something to criticise Boris with…even if it is a lie.
Ms Nichols states its because of her refusing to apologise for the remarks supporting the IRA, but how people in glass houses seem to forget that she is a friend of Corbyn. The terrorist supporter who after trying to kill the Government at Brighton he invited them to the commons. He and his former lover Diane Abbott who famously stated that every defeat of the British state is a victory for all of us. A defeat in Northern Ireland would be a defeat indeed.”. Infact her other chum John McDonnell has plaques for the IRA in his office and she openly defended Corbyn and his ilk at the General Election. These little group of evil openly support Hamas and other terrorist groups and who have constantly voted against having said scumbags declared terrorists.
I think this young lady needs to first of all she needs to obey the law which she obviously broke when she went out marching with BLM in London, yep you guessed it nowhere near her constituents and there was a game called Where’s Nichola as she was nowhere to be found. Secondly don’t try and kid the electorate you actually are up here as you have just taken a room in a union friends house and I can imagine you actually have no intention of living up here and thirdly stop criticising others when you yourself keep the most dislikeable company and are actually happy to do so….oh and don’t forget this……..
“I hope every single one of them gets their heads kicked in by the good folk of Glasgow.” This was Lazio fans in Glasgow for a Europa League Match in October 2019.
Not exactly Politician talks is it….nor telling those who criticise her to F*** off……what on earth did Warrington North do to end up with this???
