“The term engineer has been hijacked. If you've got a small screwdriver in a lapel pocket you can call yourself an engineer these days. I've seen window cleaners calling themselves optical engineer.” Not as bad as People chopping down trees, calling themselves Doctors to be fair.

John Bercow joins Labour Party Mr Bercow said he regards today’s Conservative party as 'reactionary, populist, nationalistic and sometimes even xenophobic' By Phoebe Southworth 19 June 2021 • 7:36pm https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2021/06/19/john-bercow-joins-labour-party/ John Bercow, the former Tory MP and Speaker of the House of Commons, has switched his political allegiances to join the Labour Party. Mr Bercow, who stepped down as Speaker in 2019 after 10 years, said he regards today’s Conservative Party as “reactionary, populist, nationalistic and sometimes even xenophobic”. He said he joined the Labour Party a few weeks ago because he now shares its values and sees it is as the only means to removing the current Tory government from office. “I am motivated by support for equality, social justice and internationalism. That is the Labour brand,” he said. “The conclusion I have reached is that this government needs to be replaced. The reality is that the Labour party is the only vehicle that can achieve that objective. There is no other credible option.” Mr Bercow described Prime Minister Boris Johnson as "a successful campaigner but a lousy governor". “I don’t think he has any vision of a more equitable society, any thirst for social mobility or any passion to better the lot of people less fortunate than he is," he said. "I think increasingly people are sick of lies, sick of empty slogans, sick of a failure to deliver.’’ He said the Conservatives' unexpected loss of the Chesham and Amersham parliamentary seat in the recent by election showed there is "considerable distrust on the part of voters in the south of England of this government". Asked if he believed Keir Starmer could lead his party to victory in the next general election, Mr Bercow said he is unsure. “The jury is out. I am, however, hopeful because I observed Keir Starmer at close quarters from the Speaker’s chair. He may not be Bill Clinton or Barack Obama but he is decent, honourable and intelligent and he came into politics as public service. "I believe that he is motivated by an earnest and consuming desire to better the lot of the vast majority of the people of this country who do not enjoy the privileges that he does.”

British officials estimate 300,000 Hong Kongers could arrive in the next five years. Most of them, in the past, have preferred Canada. The vast majority of the Hong Kongers are hard working and will prosper.

I find that over the last year the technical glitches with Halifax have risen considerably. Pages ‘flickering217;, hesitation between trade pages and quite a few ‘unable to get quote’ messages. But the most annoying thing of all was a delay in transferring share certificates into my online dealing account. I still deal in paper shares and very often send certificates in to Halifax to lodge in my account. This process normally takes a surprisingly short time. eg; I have sent some in to reach Halifax by a Thurs, get a text from Halifax Thurs pm to say they have received them and they are in my a/c by the following Wed. Recently sent some in and they ‘disappeared’ for a fortnight! Panic Time. Chat unavailable, can’t get through on phone, tried to find an email address, auto reply - do not email us, we do not respond, use chat or phone!! Eventually sent an email to Lloyd’s bank complaints who did at least reply stating that they would look into this and a few days later the shares miraculously appeared in my a/c. As others above have stated, there is a lowering of standards not only tech wise but in customer services as well - covid induced perhaps? On top of that the introduction of an annual fee. Time to move on? Regards MJB.

Indeed max. Why would they? As I said yeserday Patel is the only one trying but gets no support from Fatty because he doesnt want to be unpopular. Thats why the soft sod hasnt got the balls to tell titty an co to get stuffed and champion freedom and the self employed. A new party is desperately needed. One resembling a true Conservative Party would be nice but any will do

Conservative voters want the right kind of green policyJUNE 20, 2021 15 COMMENTSThe voters of Chesham and Amersham sent a message to the Conservative party. It is a message they have been trying sending in other ways for a long time, and one that is shared with many other constituencies in Conservative England. They want a green Conservative policy that is relevant to their lives, landscape and locality. As Conservatives we all wish to conserve and  look after the best of our local natural world. We  understand our relationship with fields, farms and forests and the need to treat them well. The voters  do not welcome  excessive new housing development taking away their  countryside. In Chesham and Amersham they have long fought against the way HS2 will cut swathes through their open spaces and woods and leave many of them living close to a very noisy fast train line.             The battle of greenery will be the defining one of our age. The Conservatives will not be able to outbid the Greens and Liberal Democrats, parties in opposition, when it comes to tougher action to cut carbon and match ever more difficult targets. A carbon target is easy for those not in office, and very difficult for those in power who need to persuade or force  millions of people to change their behaviours to deliver. The way Conservatives can reassure most that we are the party of good green is to set out a new and positive green agenda.             First the government must show how we will limit excessive migration and too many demands to build more homes. We believe in  treating people well that we welcome into our country, including helping them with good housing. There has to be a limit on how many we can accommodate, given the shortage of good housing and the need to  cater for the wishes of the many already legally settled here for  better provision for them and their families. The current pace of housebuilding in the most popular areas is unsustainable whilst the need is very great. If hundreds of thousands of  new people come every year to join us that is a lot of extra housing.             We need to demonstrate an intuition about what people will do for the green cause. We can make common progress with the many by encouraging, incentivising and promoting better home insulation. Lower fuel bills is a winning proposition.  If the aim is to substitute dearer power for cheaper power, and more interruptible power for reliable power, it will be a difficult sell. The government still hasn't even removed  the EU's VAT levy on insulation materials, boiler controls, draught excluder and the rest. Surely that would help promote the virtues of keeping warm whilst burning less energy. The public reluctance to take up smart meters should worry the government, as these are offered free. People see little advantage for them for the work that has to  be done in their home. They already know how much power they are consuming, and what makes the most difference to their bills. Social media is full of chat that may be misinformed fearing that a smart meter will lead to differential pricing by time of day and even temporary removals of power as the authorities seek to balance a system with more interruptible wind and solar power, and with more heavy demands from car battery recharging and electric heating.          The emerging government agenda to be kinder to animals is a positive. We are a nation of animal lovers. There needs to be some commonsense about how far to go on rewilding with the introduction of dangerous species to areas people may wish to use for recreation or food production. There is considerable support for the government passion to plant many more trees. Many a Conservative would rather have a wood nearby than another housing estate. As the trees grow we should also encourage sustainable forestry. It is  a disgrace that we import so much of our timber needs, often from colder countries where the growing times are longer. The government could be greener by offering to cut the wood miles. The economy would be stronger for producing more of our own material for  roof trusses and floors, fuel for biomass electricity plants and timber for furniture.            At the heart of the new agriculture policies being set out following our exit from the Common Agricultural Policy the emphasis is all on nature. I am  in favour of encouraging areas of wildflowers, good hedgerows and attractive woods and coppices. I am also very keen on cutting the food miles. For too long we have been dragged into dependence on continental food at the expense of our domestic agriculture. Our dairy industry was kept small by shortage of quota, our fruit industry was offered grants to grub up our orchards to replace Cox with the  Golden delicious. Our market gardening industry for flowers and vegetables was undercut  by the Dutch and others, with arguments over subsidies and the price of gas to heat glasshouses. Defra should as a matter or urgency bring forward support systems to encourage a big expansion of our domestic capacity to grow fruit, flowers and vegetables, and to expand our meat and dairy activities to reduce imports. Our competitors use a range of trade barriers and subsidies to benefit them. Our market share has fallen a lot in the last fifty years. Today there is strong demand for more UK produced food which super markets are struggling to meet. Note how anything home produced sports the Union flag to reassure, and note how anything from the continent has its origin  in small letters with  no national or EU flag to entice  us, presumably for fear of deterring those who want domestic produce. More fields honestly tilled and more orchards full of fruit would add to the beauty of our landscape.            I have no problem with an electric revolution, but it can only proceed with popular consent. That means working with the private sector on the better and cheaper ways of travelling and heating that electricity might afford us. It also means proceeding at a pace which ensures we have enough electric power to meet the needs of the buyers of the new electric products. The UK has been pushed into dependence on importing electricity from the continent. We should be self sufficient and building extra capacity to allow for growth. Staying short of power and dependent on unreliable imports points to higher prices and disruptions ahead. We need more hydro and pump storage to smooth out interruptible power and more biomass for  baseload based on UK wood pellets.             In Australia and in Canada in their 2019 General elections the left of centre parties went too far with their decarbonisation proposals. People dependent on fossil fuels felt threatened, and voted instead for the Conservatives who took a more moderate line. We need to learn from that. Transitions have losers as well as winners and they have votes and rights. An opposition party can demand the closure of all traditional vehicle factories and the end of North Sea oil and gas. Government has to decide what happens to replace them and what happens to all the people who would lose their jobs by being on the wrong side of change..... John Redwood
