And who are they, to decide what we shall not read?

Story given front page prominence by Guido’s website on Telegraph’s commentary piece about ‘Queen Theresa’ to be blocked after ‘protests’ from May’s team, inclusive of the terms So damaging did May’s campaign think it that they insisted it be removed or the newspaper would suffer consequences after her coronation…’.

But the Internet never forgets, and the whole article, by Jonathan Foreman, is accessed from this link, . It does give a fresh, even rather acerbic, viewpoint of Mrs. May’s job performance; as well as suitability to lead the country as its Prime Minister!

One of the more telling paragraphs states:-

Take the demoralised, underfunded UK Border Force. As the public discovered after a people-smugglers’ vessel ran aground in May, it has has only three cutters protecting 7,700 miles of coastline. Italy by contrast has 600 boats patrolling its 4722 miles.

Says a great deal about her ability to control a Department; never mind a country!

    One of May’s predecessors famously declared the Home Office, “Not fit for purpose”. It doesn’t seem to have improved much under her control. So despite the adage, I’m tempted to “Cast a clout” to get her out of the running.

    the woman puts up as her claim to fame the removal of one Abu Qatada to Jordan after an inordinate period of time and at huge cost to the country, after deportation he was released with no charges months later, that is an achievement in her eyes ?

    Of course the next thing we will find is that the result of EU referendum was “Remain” after suitable pressure has been applied to the MSM by May’s supporters.

    So if you have any written proof of the actual result hide it under the mattress, don’t mention it as you never know who might be listening/spying on you and you may (pun intended) just avoid that midnight knock on your door.

    Don’t take at face value the claim that Italy has 600 boats patrolling 4722 miles of coastline.

    It might have (just might) that number in total, but actually in service at any one time perhaps less than 60.

    Of which perhaps less than 10 are fit for purpose (& don’t seem to have made a dent in the tonnage of drugs smuggled in from Albania. Strange that (not)

      Knowing the Italian approach to life, one would not be surprised to discover than any number of the ‘out of service’ boats are, in fact, actively ‘in service’ shipping the stuff across from Albania every day – they don’t have an SS Corleone, do they?
