YOU can tell there's an election in the air, the Liberal Party have started to ramp up there scare-mongering. Honestly, do this mob ever have anything positive to say about anything?

THE British House of Commons is in chaos. It's my belief religion is working behind the scenes dictating to the Prime Minister Theresa May, the vicar's daughter, the Brexit deal she is pushing has been hatched by German Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats. I believe Mrs May is sacrificing democracy, placing it upon the altar, handcuffing the Parliament and chaining it to the guillotine to stay in the European union and holding on to the Irish backstop. The Brexit deal is all smoke and mirrors at the pleasure of the EU. I think Labour are mostly remainers, and in my opinion they have no class because they do not respect the original vote to leave the EU. While the Tory MP remainers wreak havoc in Parliament, I think they are undermining democracy. They do not respect their position within the British Parliament and are shameful to watch. History has shown the British People have the backbone to weather the storm. A no-deal Brexit is the only way to go forward, save the 39 billion pounds for their own needs and move into world trade.

TO the three amigos whose yacht sank off Port Stephens on Wednesday night, it is lucky the crew were rescued. However, let this be a warning to anyone else who thinks they can arrive by boat at Fingal; I will decide who comes to Fingal Bay and the circumstances in which they come. As for the new road, I call on the locals to join me in building a wall.

FOR any punters out there who want easy money, get on Bill in the federal election. His price is starting to shorten.

IN response to Alan Gibson (Short Takes 10/4), Red, Red Wine was written and performed by Neil Diamond and I don't consider it a UB40 song. Let's give credit to the songwriter.

WITH Scott Morrison's government ridiculing electric car proposals, it would seem they want to stop the volts.

DAVID Pope (Herald 11/4) can start practising and refining his caricatures to prepare his audience for a possible change of Bill posters.

MAYBE the Liberals' scrapped policy to make us all work to 70 was actually an economic stimulus plan. Think of all the wheelchair ramps and defibrillators Australian businesses are going to need.

TO do-gooders Malcolm Asquith, Colin Fordham and John Levick (Short Takes 11/4), may I suggest staging a vegan-type protest to allow the boats into Fingal Bay? Come on guys. Man your kayaks and set sail. Good luck.
