26th June 2017 - LETTER TO JEREMY CORBYN - LEADER OF THE LABOUR PARTY:
Dear Jeremy Corbyn,
We just voted for Labour and congratulate you on your great personal campaign for this month’s election. We pretty much agree with the content of your manifesto. But – I personally fear that you might revert to extreme socialism if you gain power.
We are REMAINERS, representing the 16.8M – the 48% of gagged and muzzled voters – denied any representation by all politicians and the media – despite the recent strong swing away from Leaving. You and Labour could have won the Referendum for REMAIN, stopped Article 50 and you could – and should – STOP BREXIT. The majority of your younger supporters are mostly internationalists, Europeans and Remainers. If you again fudge the issues – and then damn REMAIN with faint praise, as you did at the Referendum, which you swung behind the Quitters, the 48% and your new youth wing – will again be betrayed. It is their future – not yours.
My 40+ years’ experience of tax & economic analysis is that BREXIT will bankrupt Britain. We will continue to insult 47% of our best customers – known as “Doing A Ratner”. All major blocs will circumvent us and deal with the EU. Devaluation is already costing £20 billion a year. It will take 10 to 20 years of detailed trade negotiations to replace the past 50 years of many hundreds of careful arrangements made and UK privileges won, via the EC. There will be 15 miles of freight queues at all our air and sea ports. We will be ruined and isolated. We risk losing Scotland and Ireland.
I am a member of the Tax Justice Network TJN and similar groups. I think the Quitters main motive is to escape the currently tightening net that will cut off tax-havens. Most VIPs are now tax-evaders (about £2.4 trillion of collectable UK tax and capital-flight is hidden tax-free in 75 tax-havens). The tax-evaders are desperate to back-pedal from EU jurisdiction – you have helped them. Theresa May’s husband, Philip, is an executive in a $1.4 trillion Capital Group, an offshore, tax-free hedge-fund. $1,200,000,000,000. Such immensely powerful tax-evaders fund BREXIT. Farage is from that clique.
So, we urge you to put your old anti-EU prejudice behind you; step up and vow to STOP BREXIT, gain the support of the 48% - keep faith with your youth vote – and resoundingly win the next election. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain – including the necessary +60 seats. For our grandchildren and the nation please STOP BREXIT.

26 June 2017 - ANOTHER SERIOUS WARNING in my latest letter to The Guardian:
Jonathan Freedland does not go far enough in his article, Can Brexit be stopped? The answer is in our hands – Guardian 24th June 2017. We do not have to proceed to commit economic and political suicide, urged on by obsessed Serial-Liar-Farage, adopted by autistic Tight-Lipped-Theresa, Boris-the-Clown, Et-Tu-Gove, Head-Boy-Rees-Mogg, Corbyn-the-Sly, and a bunch of IQ challenged red-necked, tax evading, octogenarian Colonel Blimps. The-People-Who-Have-Spoken haven’t the faintest clue of the complex dire consequences. Re-negotiating will absorb all our political resources for 10 to 20 years. Devaluation has cost us £20 billion per year. The EU will snatch The City’s trillions of transactions (£70 billion p.a. in tax). All global players will circumvent us to deal with the EU. We will lose Scotland and Ireland. Our migrant-labour industries will go bust. There will be 15 mile freight queues at all sea & air ports. Brexit will bankrupt Britain. We do NOT have do it. It is not a game. We can STOP BREXIT - and reform the EU from inside. Grow-up! Stop now, today.

(NB - Why Corbyn the Sly? Because, while I admire his surprising sterling performance and sensible ideas expressed in the run up to this Election; at the July 2106 Referendum Jeremy Corbyn did slyly damn Remainers with faint praise, letting in the Quitters. He is a long-time committed Leaver, and he voted with the Tories on triggering Article 50 to leave the EU, which Labour could have stopped. Like all the politicians and media, he refuses to acknowledge and colludes with gagging the 16.8 million, the 48%, who voted REMAIN. He is now slyly "sitting on the fence" about Hard or Soft Brexit, refusing to face the destructive realities of quitting the Customs Union and The Single Market. In this Hung-Parliament, The Labour Party, which Corbyn leads - could ally with all the other minority parties, against the Tories, and stop Brexit now. The EU leaders are saying they would welcome the UK back with open arms. We do NOT have to proceed with this crazy self-destruction; scrapping 60 years of careful building of the UK's relationship with the other 27 Members and insulting 47% of our best customers. This sly, querulous old man, 50 years a naysayer, this back-room-lawyer turned celebrity leader - could and should STOP BREXIT.)

Sci-Fi & Socio-Economics
9 JUNE 2017 - THE UK RESULTS ARE IN. It is a Hung Parliament. Mrs May has lost her big gamble. "They" will all have to cooperate, until the next uncivilised, back-stabbing, sour, stupid-soundbite, time-wasting election. Dear God - we are bored and weary with banal political posturing - and tedious, endless, meaningless, idiotic gabbling. They could and should say what they mean to say in a fraction of the words and time. And we would get more progress.
In the meantime - what to do about BREXIT?
Form a negotiating team of 27 experts, representing ALL the UK parties. 27 to match the 27 EU heads of state. Include eighteen year olds. Publish the targets and process - because the public have a right to comment on this nation's future. Tight-Lipped-Theresa will have to grow-up and discuss things. Barrack-room lawyer Corbyn will have to grow-up and risk stating positive ideas that others might criticise and snipe at; as he has for 50 years.
Send the fascist, EU insulting, obsessed Nigel Farage, to Trump Towers, to join the sweaty-handed incontinent, serial liar Demented Donald, to work for the break-up of the United States of America. THE DISUNITED STATES. It will be Donald's and Nigel's revenge on The Establishment - before they are found secure and safe lifetime beds in a suitable mental-hospital. "Mr Comey! Ya don'ta showa me no respect. You is terminated"
(PS - URGENT - do take Donald's nuclear codes away, before he presses buttons, imagining he is tweeting. Put him in a fake White House with a huge TV screen).
