WELCOME to @Piers_Corbyn WeatherAction.com Special "New Futures & politics, post article 50" blog
This blog was started because of the increasing number of people who want to discuss the overlap of politics and Climate Change and the ever widening political situation around Brexit (in which the EU-Climate change has significant importance) and the position of Piers' brother Jeremy - leader of the Labour Party. The videos and documents below are of special interest.

So the great negotiation is underway and the rock solid commitment from the UK of having concurrent trade negotiation has crumbled to sand already. With the May government having no plan whatsoever we are in the hands of the EU. It will probably make grim viewing over the coming months. Can the EU convince our idiots that moving into Efta to remain in the Single Market is the only way out?

The airline industry is ramping up its concern as they approach the period where they are starting to schedule flights 18 months ahead. What do they do since the government has no exit plan and so far nothing is being done regarding airspace? The government response to their query was grade 1 BS. However, the legacy media are riding to the rescue as a few members of the ignorant bubble have discovered a secret way out of the EU that keeps a lot of things as they are and can give time to sort out something a bit more permanent given nothing much can be achieved in the short time remaining. Well hurrah!! Of course, this way out was identified 3 years ago on Eureferendum and as yet the bubble dwellers are still struggling with the details. Try reading the Flexit, boys and girls. Or the 16 monographs that cover all the main aspects. Hell, you might even learn that membership of the EU customs union is for EU members ONLY!

With the UK politicians in chaos, Michael Barnier is getting impatient to negotiate Brexit, pointing out that 3 months have already passed and that there is only 18 months to negotiate allowing 6 months to ratify our accession treaty - if one ever gets written. Brexit is showing that our MPs are not fit for purpose, being supremely ill-equipped for the job we elect them to do and hopelessly ignorant. The legacy media match them in ignorance as do the legion of Think Tanks that are supposed to float ideas out. The more this goes on the more likely we shall either suffer a cliff edge Brexit or the EU will lead us like little children to the correct path out. If we have an Autumn election then there will be even more delay.

What a farce - May wastes all our time and money with an unnecessary election and loses her majority. You can only laugh. As for Labour - what grounds have they to call for Corbyn to go after that? A few thousand more votes in key places and he would have won the most seats. The only hope is that the suicidal no deal Brexit is dead and a sensible approach will prevail. Perhaps we can be guided into Efta and remain in the EEA by the EU to achieve the best exit. If we had anyone in government that understands the EU, we could be offering proposals such as moving control of the EMA and EASA from the EU to UNECE. In the case of the EMA, the office could then remain in London. These are ideas for doing something with our new found freedom and way beyond muppets like Davis and the legacy media who still can't grasp membership of the customs union is only open to EU members.

So we can finally get this surreal and pointless election out of the way today, and then reality can return with a vengeance. A couple of reports out this week indicating that the UK heading for a slowdown due to Brexit uncertainty and also looking at the no deal scenario that May loves. This would appear to be what Mark favours by cutting out the only sensible leaving option of joining Efta and remaining in the EEA. We regard the Efta option as a stepping stone on the way out to a better solution. Anything other than this will damage the economy - the question being by how much. The no deal option will be a cliff edge collapse the like of which we haven't seen for nearly 100 years. Anyone who thinks it makes sense is truly deranged. Good luck finding somebody worthy of voting for - I haven't so won't be.

Gerry, I think the plan was to leave the EU. How to negotiate with a protectionist trade cartel with federalist aspirations is another matter. Obviously free trade and non-tariff barriers are the best outcome, but not succumbing to this awful, undemocratic juggernaut is the most important thing. There might be quite a few unelected doctrinaire commissioners, but they ultimately have to answer to politicians like Merkel. Treating the UK drastically harsher than your South Koreas or Canadas is but a pipe dream of the new Holy Roman Emporers. We should not cravenly attempt to play by their rules, some back door appeasement like EFTA. Whilst out canvassing for Labour today, I came across a house sign that was most apposite: "Firkum Hall".

What Farage achieved was done accidentally. He opposed a referendum on EU membership as his plan was to get control of the Commons - dream on. That the party is a shambles is down to his autocracy in expelling anyone who had greater knowledge or insight than him regarding the EU - not a difficult thing to achieve. He snubbed the chance to use MEP funds to secure a financially stable party. Given that the party is focused on one issue you would think they would have a credible exit plan ready for when the chance came - no, nothing at all in the way of a plan. And the current Ukip policy on Brexit is ignorant and likely to severely damage our economy, just like May's Blue Labour. Corbyn's Red Labour talk sense on Brexit but will destroy the economy by a different method.

Hello - I don't normally get involved in politics too much but as people are being murdered on our streets due to our politicians I will. 2 failings connect these atrocities both.mainly by labour. Firstly our idiotic war mongering meddling in the middle east -Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and secondly our open border immigration from 1997 to 2010. First we bomb the shit out of countries and then don't protect our borders enough to stop large numbers of people coming in with a grudge against the west. Then to top it off, we have lefty liberals who would rather protect people with extremist views, own human rights. Jeremy corbyn has been one of those who has tried to block anti terror legislation for years. If he thinks you can have dialogue with these idiots killing in the name of Islam he is deluded. As for May and the tories they have not learnt from previous mistakes about destabilising countries and should not have encouraged an uprising in Syria.

Utter bollocks, I know. The little people will get it though, the minions who have assiduously adjusted and smoothed and fabricated data sets. It would be great though to see the likes of Mann, Jones, Karl, Schmidt etc locked up. Your point about Farage. It shames me as a member of the Labour Party, that he speaks absolute sense on the EU and climate.

Went to a local election hustings last night and managed to ask the Green party candidate a few questions. Tabatha claimed she was a scientist and evidence based information was her thing. She falsely claimed that CO2 levels in the atmosphere had doubled in recent decades, but didn't know the actual concentrations. Or that water vapour was a greenhouse gas as well. Solar cycles? You guessed it, not a clue as to their existence. Piers, your brother was no better climate wise in the TV debate, but I suppose this subject is so rigged that it would be political suicide to disavow the consensus. After all, from what I've heard in the media, tthe only people who do so are evil and want to destroy the planet. The 121 year Fujimori solar cycle bottoms out in a few decades so maybe this AGW madness will have worn out by then. I wonder what the new madness will be?

Thanks Gerry, But ISIL, Al Qaida and Al Nusra etc are Sunni Wahabbist sectarian nutjobs who delight in the slaughter of infidels including Shi'ites, Christians, Atheists, you name it. These guys are sponsored by Saudi Arabia and the USA has actively encouraged their activities in order to destabilise people like Assad. The idea that Iran is the problem is nonsense. The British, USA and Israel arranged the overthrow of their government in 1953 just because they wanted to control their own oil industry. And they remember this international injustice. Despite this their parliament is obliged to elect MPs from minorities including Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians. That sort of inclusivity would never obtain in a backward, feudal autocracy like Saudi Arabia. The nutjob Wahhabists are the architects of much of the mayhem in the Middle East.

You have missed the point Mark. It is not the occasional use of cannabis but the continual use of it that causes damage to the brain and mental faculties. This then makes them susceptible to falling for the Islamic nonsense. The stupidity of the likes of Blair and Cameron playing soldiers in the Middle East and North Africa has added fuel to the fire but the real source of the trouble is Iran. When it comes to supporting the IRA terrorists we should remember the US government did its bit to help fund them during the Clinton era and before with Noraid. Once the US suffered a bit of terrorism of their own they changed their tune realising how two-faced they looked.

Gerry, I think the Saudi Wahhabist inspired ideology of the Manchester bomber is the defining factor in his behaviour, not whether he toked the odd jay. Theresa May's enablement of these Jihadists during her time as Home Secretary ought to be receiving a lot more scrutiny from the supine MSM. She oversaw our security services who were flying Jihadists to Libya in 2011 in an effort to topple Gaddafi. The Manchester cell including family members of Abedi were regular customers. The blood is on Cameron and May's hands. But instead of investigating this perversion, titles like the Mail and Telegraph pour scorn on Jeremy Corbyn. The lies they print are astonishing, neglecting facts like his receiving the 2013 Gandhi Foundation International Peace Award in recognition of 30 years of consistent effort to uphold the values of social justice, non-violence and support of human rights.

As expected, it turns out that the latest mass murderer was a dope head. They always are. And today's Mail has an article by the resident doctor highlighting the connection of all the recent jihadi murderers with the use of cannabis. But it is not just those who claim to kill for Islam. Look into other mass murders and you will find the link, if not to cannabis then to anti-depressants. The Elite wish to ignore this because it is inconvenient to their pro cannabis stance and because they have no wish to upset big Pharma over the booming anti-depressant market. The failure also means the security forces chase their tails looking for the big jihadi network when it doesn't exist. Sure IS claimed it was them - why wouldn't they?

With a recent poll suggesting that the majority of Remainers have accepted the referendum result, that leaving the EU is a good idea is no longer the question. The question now is how to leave and what damage will it cause us. Time and study have shown there is only one sensible route out but that has been discarded by May. Therefore there will be more damage to the economy than is necessary. Many are wondering if the claims that we will just walk away if the EU demand payment and that a bad deal will be rejected in favour of nothing at all are just electioneering to pander to Ukip voters and that sanity will prevail post election. The worry is that it is their true policy.

The answer to Black Pearl's question is NO. Why? Here we have yet another instance of policy coming from a higher authority being issued through the EU. Given that our legacy media have the attention span and knowledge of 3 year olds when it comes to the EU - hoping not to get a backlash from 3yr olds here - there is no way they can cope with the fact that many regulations issued by the EU are only in their role as a conduit to pass down regulations. The two points to take from this are that the great take back control claim is a myth since we are unlikely to abandon these global regulations. And secondly it highlights the increasing irrelevance of the EU and that by leaving we will cut out the middle man and be at the table to form the regulations. But if David Davis continues his juveniles rants of we won't pay and they must understand that we can just walk away, there will be more pressing matters such as dealing with a collapsed economy.

It's the Brexit election said May. And then...well...nothing. It's become the one thing not to mention. Why? Probably because nobody has a cogent plan and the legacy media are not interested. Only out in the blogosphere is there any discussion. One blogger has a piece about that given Brexit is the biggest event in living memory bar those around for the Second World War, why is there no discussion and in particular why no discussion of the costs? No party proposal to do something does not set off a discussion over the cost. Except Brexit. With hundreds of thousands of jobs at stake you would think it would matter. Worryingly, the job exodus is already being planned. EU companies are looking at EU parts sourcing while UK companies are looking for UK sourcing. IKEA have said it will look at more UK manufacture to avoid problems. With no certainty over Brexit companies will plan, the danger is they carry out those plans no matter what kind of Brexit is achieved.

A creed that destroys advancement - save for the chosen few, 4 legs good 2 legs bad as the saying goes - and is built on stealing from the people via taxation.

But then it could be like the neutering of Ofgem who can't mention that costs have risen because of green crap. Also impossible in her plans is to negotiate a trade deal with the EU concurrent with our succession deal. The EU have clearly said that this won't happen.

The WTO is dedicated to growing free trade and removing unnecessary barriers. The interesting point about privatizing mail services in the UK is that the edict came from an EU Directive. This is evidence of something only a few people realize in that much of EU legislation is actually implementing rules from a global source that won't disappear with Brexit. What will be different is our participation in drafting these World level regulations. There is also an important difference to WTO rules and the EU - the ability to opt out if necessary. The Lisbon Treaty removed this facility from EU rules as part of the path to becoming one big happy super state.

The problem we face is that our Prime Minister is a bloody stupid woman. Sadly, the alternatives at the coming election are no better.

Sadly, the EU are not bluffing but simply stating facts that a competent PM would know. Deluded May still believes she can get a deal that is as good as the Single Market she has rejected. She can't. At some point - well you have to hope - she will have to confront this. Of course the danger is the EU will be so alienated they will have no desire to help May out of the hole she is digging. Or, in the mistaken belief that no deal is in anyway a good option, abandon the talks. Much damage to the economy can be done before she rejoins the planet - if she ever does.

TTIP is back on the agenda, what a surprise. The Deep State resuming normal service. The GE is an excuse to roll back on Brexit in my book. The EU says the GE can overturn the Referendum. Surprise, surprise! It would not have been allowed to if the Referndum had gone the other way. The next three years will determine whether Europeans want democracy or autocracy.....

The working classes - or their unions - destroyed themselves by remaining stuck in the past. Ending the NHS would be a positive move as it is a lumbering inefficient dinosaur that nobody in their right mind would create, which is why nobody else has followed our lead. As to austerity - what austerity? It only exists in the Guardian and on its TV channel the BBC - every day our debt gets larger. We are not even close to living within our means as Blue Labour keep wasting money left right and overseas. This is shaping up to be a bizarre election with Red Labour, LibDems, Greens and SNP all forming a coalition to fight Blue Labour, with Ukip standing down in seats where it would split the Tory vote.It would be amusing if May's plan to buy herself 5 years in power before the inevitable Brexit reckoning fails.

Good luck to Jeremy in the upcoming General Election! Having endured decades of Thatcherism destroying the working classes>New Labour wolves in sheeps clothing>LibDemCon backtracking on student fees>Conserative destruction of the NHS and never-ending austerity...it's time for change. We need a Brexit that works and a party for the people, not just the corporations paying less tax year on year while the working people suffer.

Most people refer to the Guardian comment area as 'Comment Macht Frei' given the level of censorship. Some moderation is necessary but with too much it becomes a dead zone rather like the Telegraph has where one view dominates with no discussion. As if trying to leave the EU wasn't enough to keep her busy, May wants a June 8 General Election. Her claim is that Westminster is divided on the way forward but she really means that with the hardcore Brexiteers - the Ultras - in her own party she lacks enough support for her Brexit 'plan' which will see us remain tied to the EU for years ahead. Her suggestion that a 2020 election will come at a crucial point in Brexit is rubbish as we will be out come 29 April 2019. The EU want us gone before their election a few months later. They need to divi up our MEP seats to the 27. Could this blow up in her face? Possibly if her 'plan' is unpicked and a creditable Efta-EEA case is made against her.

Mark Hall and Ragnell E Yes this is the page where those comments should be. The link was on top of RHS home page but not on foot for loading update reasons. This NEW link is on foot. I agree with your comms on Guardian. I have found in my experience dealing with media that despite some well meaning genuine people working for the Guadian of all papers it has twisted and misrepresented what I actually said in the most dishonest way of all paers - insanely desperate to impose an ideology and narrative on everything. Even The Sun (a long time ago, I dont speak to them now) has been more accurate in my experience on actual quoting of what is said. They will of course (if its political) put a view but it has been clear what is their view and what I said, for the Guardian it hasnt been. The next worst one in my experience is The Evening Standard. While they have had accurate reports they cannot resist the temptation to create headlines conveying the opposite of the content of what I said.
