    Brexit and an Election WHAT NEXT ?

    Having an election before Brexit. This appears to gives the Government a chance to impose more ways of getting our money. ie rewrite the Manifesto.
    WHOSE THE PENSIONER VOTING CONSERVATIVE

    The country has also had to accept for years that dementia is not an illness and we have to pay for it. Really?

    Now The Government are kidding us that 100 K is the way forward and we should be content with the government allowing us to keep 100 K of our inheritance. By the way you pay everything else over when  your dead.

    The election is unfortunately a diversion. We should be thinking more about Brexit and dealing with it.

    We have unfortunately managed to get ourselves into voting for Brexit because Cameron could not work with the European Union. There is a need for The European Union to change attitude and work more for the countries they represent.

    That does not mean we stop immigrants. Control it maybe if you can.

    We need immigrants from Europe to work with us and for us. So why don’t we go with Europe policy for now and wait for  them modify their immigration policy. There is nothing stopping us monitoring the immigration without restriction unless they are criminal etc.

    Trading-do we want to trade outside The European Union . Europe are are neighbours and our friends. We should trade with them first. They are on our doorstep.

    Are the conservatives going in the right way to improve living and trading conditions. I think not.
