Simple demographics mean we need to find a way to pay for our growing elderly populations care, but how? Conservative “dementia tax” is not the answer. Young and old move forward into the future together as one, therefore we should look after eachother as individuals and collectively as society renews itself from generation to generation.
So what do we do? We should not be putting our pensioners, or long term ill, out on the ice to be eaten by polar bears Eskimo style when they are no longer contributing and need long term care. They participated in and gave to society during their lives and deserve both respect and help from the rest when mother nature takes its toll.

Over the period of the financial crisis a new centre of European power has developed: the “government” of the euro area. The expression may seem badly chosen, as it remains hard to identify the democratically accountable institution that today implements EU economic policies.
Characterised by its informality and opacity, the central institution of that government, the Euro Group of finance ministers of the euro area, operates outside the framework of the EU treaties and is not accountable to the EU Parliament or more importantly to national parliaments.

The last thing I ever wanted to do was write about France’s likely next president, Emmanuel Macron, but here we are. This post was inspired by a very telling Financial Times article sent to me by a reader, but we’ll get to that in a bit……

THE PRESS OFFICE OF The Lord Stoddart of Swindon (Independent Labour) 31st March 2017
The independent Labour Peer, Lord Stoddart of Swindon has reacted angrily to the attitude of EU Council President Donald Tusk toward Brexit.
Lord Stoddart said: “The ramifications and difficulties of the UK’s departure from the EU and the dictatorial attitude of Donald Tusk serve to emphasise the extent to which our country has been sold down the river by successive governments and parliaments. Much of our governance has been allowed to fall into the hands of unelected bureaucrats and 27 other countries, whose interests are either not the same as ours or, in some cases, inimical to them.
“Now is the time for our Government to stand firm. To be tough, not timid and to obtain the return of our freedom and democracy, sooner rather than later. They are our birth right and should be returned to us without the bullying and intimidation we are currently seeing from Brussels and its supporters.”
Brexit Central: The UK can legally sign new trade agreements before Brexit is complete
Here I shall set out, in detail, what I see as the case that, now that the UK has formally declared it is leaving the EU and that it intends to leave the EU customs union, the UK can negotiate and ratify trade agreements with non-EU countries that would come into force only after the UK has left the EU.
The case put by the EU and others that the UK cannot commence negotiations of, and certainly cannot ratify, new trade agreements with non-EU countries until after it leaves the EU is as follows:
By Brendan Chilton, Labour Leave
Monday 27th of March Sir Keir Starmer made a speech at Chatham House setting out what he thinks the Labour position on the Brexit negotiations should be.
At Labour Leave we agree with Sir Keir that the UK should continue to cooperate with the remaining member state countries on security, and that we mustn’t see any reduction or weakening in worker’s rights for UK citizens.
Sir Keir is right when he argues that a good settlement for the regions and nations of the UK must be an aim of the deal we secure with the EU. He is also right to suggest that any deal should ensure UK management of migration in the interests of our economy and communities, and we welcome the apparent acceptance that freedom of movement has to end.
Ed – I remember handing Douglas a copy of UKIP Braintree’s Liberty Press as he was standing with Nigel Farage on the pavement outside Parliament at a protest against the European Arrest Warrant. Diane James close by. The boost UKIP got from DC joining us gave the whole party priceless credibility, hope and momentum at a crucial time. Thank you.

It has been an extraordinary achievement. UKIP, my party, which was founded in 1993 in order to get Britain out of the European Union, has now achieved what we were established to do.
On Wednesday, the Prime Minister is going to trigger Article 50, beginning the formal process of withdrawing our country from the EU. By April 2019, Britain will no longer be a member of the EU. After twenty-four years, we have done it. Brexit is in good hands.
