It is a long time since there have been quite so many butterflies and moths as there are this summer. A multitude of butterflies of every hue and colour, rise up in clouds across fields and gardens.
This abundance of butterflies, along with huge numbers of bugs, bees and other insects, somewhat questions the theory that farmers are destroying the environment by polluting the atmosphere with CO2 emissions, nitrates, methane and other horrors, due to modern day farming.
I would argue the opposite. British farming is way ahead of curve, and our ethical, experienced and well balanced management of the countryside, offsets the damage done in towns and cities where roads are congested and emissions pollute the atmosphere with toxic fumes.
Manufacturing industries, energy providers and waste disposal all create varying degrees of pollution, including damaging waterways and coastlines. They are a necessary evil if we wish to maintain a thriving manufacturing industry. But, it should be noted that the farmers, growers and landowners who manage and maintain the countryside, are the best antidote money can buy.
The Environmental lobbyists, and Eco warriors, one of which gate crashed the Mansion House attempting to disrupt the Chancellor’s speech, and was appropriately man handled by heroic MP Mark Field, should take note.
Mr Field was quick to spot the threat, unlike the official security guys. He should be congratulated rather than being suspended by lame duck Mrs May. It seems all the good guys who are prepared to act decisively or speak their mind, get suspended from the Tory party, while the mealy mouthed, PC brigade are kept on side, propping up the so called top dogs.
It is clear that the BBC, left wing anti-Brexit newspapers, and remain conservative MPs are doing their best to sabotage Boris Johnson’s campaign. They obviously consider Jeremy Hunt with his remain credentials to be more malleable; a man who will probably buckle under pressure from Brussels and his fellow Europhile MPs. As someone who knows Mr Hunt well observed recently, “He is Mrs May in trousers”.
There are many supporters who consider Mr Hunt’s personal attacks upon his opponent to be undignified and unworthy of a future Prime Minister.
Boris Johnson has not attacked any of his rivals. However when it comes to politics and policies he shoots from the hip. He does not tolerate PC piffle, and he has confirmed that he will deliver Brexit by 31st October. Never afraid to say what others are thinking, he does occasionally make himself an open target.
To have a maverick Prime Minister who is an original during these turbulent times, will prove to be a game changer. Boris is the Trump Card, who with a capable hand of determined Brexit colleagues, will turn the tables on Brussels.
Halloween as observed on 31st October, is a celebration on the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ day, beginning the three-day observance of Allhallowtide. A time dedicated to remembering the dead, martyrs, and faithful departed.
Let us hope that Halloween 2019 will be remembered as the date when the Prime Minister and his government eventually honoured faithfully the wishes of the 17.2million who voted to depart the dying European Union.
There are plenty putting money on BJ seeking support from Nigel Farrage who knows where the skeletons are buried in the EU. Having spent over twenty years trying to extract the UK, he is invaluable.
Had Mrs May done so after the Referendum instead of sabotaging her colleague’s efforts, Brexit would have happened in March.
