25% of all the comms satellites in orbit around the Earth were made in the UK. Bet you didn’t know that, Mr Trump or Mr Junker! I bet most Brits didn’t realise just how good we are at this stuff.

Andrew Marr! Surely it would have been a simple courtesy to have said “Good Morning” or “Hello” when you began your interview with the Prime Minister. You extended that courtesy to Jezza when you interviewed him; what are we to read into that regarding personal views & bias?

& that on his next visit she will support the launch a big balloon of him in a nappy. A simple yes or no will suffice, Ayesha.

On The Andrew Marr Show Ayesha Hazarika was given a disproportionate amount of time to say why she demonstrated against Trump yesterday. Presumably she was out there demonstrating when the King of Saudi Arabia came on a State Visit

The people who create wealth & pay tax personally. We’re they at Blenheim this evening? I very much doubt it!

So “150 Business Leaders” meet Trump at Blenheim this evening. How many there represented 99% of UK businesses: the small & family-owned businesses of our Country. The Establishment met Trump this evening, not the true capitalist, personal risk-taking lifeblood of the Nation.

pay package including a ....wait for it...£1.25m “performance related bonus”. How bad does it have to get before that is nil?! Jezza’s hero Karl Marx said that if you give capitalists enough rope they will hang themselves. Go figure!

BT’s share price fell in March ‘18 to a level not seen since 2012. 13,000 BT staff are losing their jobs. The largest pension fund deficit in the private sector. The CEO Gavin Patterson is working out his notice having been asked to go......so guess what...he’s getting a £2.3m

If they end up holding another referendum, there’ll have to be another one after that; if the Remoaners win the Brexiteers will want a decider cos. that’ll only be 1-1; if the Brexiteers win the Remoaners will want it to be the best of five!

Maria Caulfield MP says: “What I can’t stand is people saying one thing to your face & another behind your back”. And this woman’s in politics! Surely that’s an essential component of the job!

The Remoaners & the Establishment should be ashamed of themselves.

What choice did David Davies have frankly? He’s asked to go to Barnier & say “here’s £39 billion, we want no say in making the rules but, in reality, we’ll stay in your Club & take it from Berlin & Brussels”. Ridiculous.

Can you hear that faint cheering? It’s Jezza urging on the Ruskies for this evening.

ATTENTION! WANTED! A “Good Luck England” message from Nicola Sturgeon. Noteable by its absence. Given England pays her wages (& their NHS, Education & Police Force come to think of it) you’d have thought that she’d be grateful enough to thank the Paymaster.

back this deal for it to have any chance. At least we have some control back re Judges, Borders & Trade Deals but what happens when Barnier (egged on by the Remoaners) just says no?

Nice try PM. But happens when Barnier now says no cos he wants Free Movement. The Remoaners keep attacking & doing Barnier’s job for him. Services are sacrificed & we become a vassal state of the EU. All at a cost of £39 billion! At the very least the Remoaners must now shut up &
