Today Paine showed what a poor Oz captain he is

England will probably win the Oval test thanks to the incompetence of the Oz captain.I wrote this in my blog of 25th August. He is their worst captain since Ian Johnson in 1956. Johnson had Miller and Lindwall two of  the best fast bowlers that ever played and contrived to lose. England doctored the wickets to suit Laker but Johnson was a  liability. that was too much for the rest of the team to overcome.

Johnson was seen as a safe pair of hands as was Paine.Just count how many catches he has dropped. He even did his best to put Steve Smith off as difficult catch by diving in front of him.

The other claimed safe pair of hands was Mrs May who has done her best to screw up Brexit and made  things ten times more difficult for BoJo. She was chosen like Paine and Johnson as someone who would not upset the opposition. That hands victory to the other side. What you need is a PM/Captain who does upset the opposition and not give out knighthoods to convicted woman beaters and mediocre civil servants.

Churchill nailed it in the 1930s

In that decade UK politicians with  the exception of Churchill and a few like minded rebels kowtowed to Hitler and led  by Lord Halifax   would have made us a  colony of  the Third Reich.

I quote from Vernon Bogdanor,

Looking at the sorry performance of the House of Commons elected in 2017, it is difficult to avoid remembering Winston Churchill’s condemnation of the parliaments of the 1930s as being “decided only to be undecided, resolved to be irresolute, adamant for drift, solid for fluidity, all-powerful to be impotent”. Parliament has shown itself not to be the solution to Brexit but the problem.

BoJo is quite right to have clipped these useless MPs  wings. Corbyn is not an atypical MP  he epitomises omost of our useless MPs who have nothing to offer but their own self interest.

When I campaigned in 2016 I used the slogan,Vote for freedom or you and yours will die German slaves. I have not changed my mind. Indeed our choice is even starker with an EU fascist set to run the EU commission and rule over us .

Piers Morgan nails it

The problem is not BoJo but a parliament which does not represent us preoccupied as it is with its own expenses and self importance.Me, meme sums it up

Fraser Nelson also points out the analogy with our craven late 1930s government castigated thus by Churchill,

"adamant for drift, solid for fluidity, all-powerful to be impotent”.

He must have had a premonition of Mrs May.

BoJo, don't you just love him and Dom

I loved it today. Soubry was apoplectic with rage, great! Ditto Bercow, Heseltine  etc all parroting the same phrase Constitutional outrage is all they can endlessly say. Little goody two shoes aka Mrs Balls has been hoist ith her own petard

BoJo and Dom have outsmarted them. Game set and match to BoJo.

Brexit cliches I hate

Top of the list is crashing out. We are not allowed just to leave which is accurate and factual but we must submit to the emotional blackmail of our lazy emotive unfactual, innumerate media.

Then comes the phrase I want to be very clear on this which means I want to confuse this issue as much as possible. Swinson used this phrase over 10 times in her interview this morning.

There are many more such cliches I have forgotten Grateful to be reminded.

The worst thing is how often these phrases are blindly repeated. Is this all they learn at their PPE Oxford course. Money would be better spent on a remedial arithmetic course for Diane& Jezza

Astounding performance by Ben Stokes wins Ashes test

It was exciting and unbelievable but I must refer to my blog last of last week

I wrote there that I thought the Oz captain Paine was a duff captain.who made poor review decisions which today cost the Aussies the match. His poor batting also handicaps his side. He should be dropped. Wade is a competent keeper and better batter than Paine. Time for the Oz management to act but will they?.

Sun Tzu wrote over 2000 years ago that battles are won and lost before the first blows are exchanged. Its the same with Ashes cricket. The Aussies lost when they dropped Smith as captain and picked Paine like they chose Johnston instead of Miller in 1956.Nice guys come last as the Donald will tell you.

Thank God we ditched May and switched to BoJo. He picks good competent assistants who at least give us a chance against Barnier

Ashes shows importance of having a good captain

The first Ashes series I  remember watching on our old 12 ins black and white TV was in 1956 when England won the series but lost at Lords.The Oz captain Johnson was not worth his place in the side.Keith Miller should have been captain but he was a bit too much for the Oz selectors who wanted a yes man and no trouble on tour.

Roll on 65 years and the Aussies off the  of the sandpaper incident   have again picked a duff captain who consistently gets the reviews wrong,  scores few runs and drops many catches. I have never seen an Oz side drop as many catches as this current side.

It all reminds me of Mrs May advertised as a safe pair of hands by the sycophant Hancock.

BoJo so far has picked a good team. Let us hope they hold their catches.
