On divine uprooting/rebuilding and on discerning deception (fulfilled prophecy #10 cont’d)

Veronika West posted the following this afternoon, which may relate to what Erica heard as “There is one more deception to be revealed” (Monday Newsmix #4). This is also referred to in connection with the May and Merkel agreements mentioned in the closing section of The cat is out of the bag”…

First, Veronika makes a controversial discernment, but which is not necessarily so in view of the deep, ongoing betrayal of British democracy by our elected representatives and the chaos they’ve engendered. 

She wisely honours God and stresses the battle is not against our fellows of the flesh, but against the unclean entities that are given rights of access to affect those who deliberately rebel against the Living Lord God, His holy word and ordinances. (Last July, I posited such a possibility when revisiting the word for the PM that Charles Shamp had brought but which he removed from his website): 

‘I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED LONG ENOUGH IN DELIVERANCE MINISTRY TO KNOW AND RECOGNISE A JEZEBEL SPIRIT WHEN I SEE ONE IN OPERATION, THE EYES OF THE SERPENT SPIRIT LOOK BACK AT YOU AND ITS POWERFUL ABILITY TO MANIPULATE, TWIST AND DISTORT THE TRUTH IS NOT TO BE UNDERESTIMATED.

‘LISTEN!! For those who have said that this lady is sent by God, YOU are deceived, but I tell you, mark my words, “JEZEBEL DID NOT WIN AND EVERYTHING SHE TOUCHED TURNED TO DUST, AND THE DOGS IN THE STREETS ATE HER FLESH”!!

‘My Hope is Knowing that the God I serve WILL NOT BE MOCKED AND HE WILL NOT BE MOVED, and the God I serve IS NOT JUST A GOOD STARTER BUT HE IS AN EXCELLENT FINISHER AND HE WILL FINISH AND BRING TO FULL COMPLETION THAT WHICH HE HAS STARTED IN THIS NATION.

‘Our battle IS NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD BUT AGAINST POWERS AND PRINCIPALITIES OF DARKNESS. UNLESS WE WAR EFFECTIVELY FIRST IN THE SPIRIT WE WILL BE DEFEATED IN THE NATURAL. IT’S TIME TO PRAISE GOD THAT HE DOES NOT CHANGE HIS MIND AND THAT HE DOES NOT BREAK HIS PROMISES. HE CAN BE TRUSTED AND HE IS FAITHFUL TO THE RIGHTEOUS THAT CRY OUT NIGHT AND DAY. HE HAS INDEED INTERPRETED OUR CRY AND HE WILL BRING THIS NATION BACK TO ITS FIRST LOVE.

‘My cry today is GOD CAUSE EVEN OUR ENEMIES TO BLESS US, TURN WHAT THE ENEMY HAS MEANT FOR EVIL FOR OUR GOOD, let us BECOME A NATION THAT WILL WORSHIP YOU IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH, let us BECOME A NATION THAT KNOWS YOU NOT MERELY BY THE HEARING OF OUR EARS BUT A NATION THAT WILL SEE YOU, LET YOUR GLORY BE MADE MANIFEST IN OUR MIDST, CUT US FREE FROM THE UNGODLY SOUL-TIES THAT BIND US AND DELIVER US FROM THE SPIRITS OF AHAB AND JEZEBEL, CUT OFF THE LIFE SOURCE OF LEVIATHAN AND SET THIS CAPTIVE NATION FREE!’

Now the positive, subsequent word:

‘A WORD FOR THE UNITED KINGDOM (I believe it also pertains to many other the Nations of the Earth, A DIVINE UPROOTING, TEARING DOWN AND REBUILDING IS TAKING PLACE….!)

‘I hear the Spirit of God say,

“WATCH AS I STRIP AWAY THE FIG LEAVES THAT THEY HAVE USED TO COVER THEIR UNGODLY AND DECEITFUL ACTS, NOTHING CAN BE HIDDEN FROM ME, FOR WHERE DARKNESS INCREASES SO MY LIGHT INCREASES MORE, WATCH AS I STRIP AWAY THEIR FLESHY GARMENTS AND NAKED THEY WILL STAND BEFORE ME AND NAKED THEY SHALL STAND BEFORE MEN. I SHALL NOT BE MOCKED BUT I SHALL MOVE TO MAKE A PUBLIC SPECTACLE OF THE UNGODLY, FOR THEY WILL HAVE NOWHERE TO RUN AND NO PLACE TO HIDE, A CROWN OF SHAME WILL BE THEIR PORTION AND DOUBLE DISHONOUR THEIR REWARD. WATCH FOR MY RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE SHALL NOT DELAY BUT SHALL PREVAIL OVER THIS NATION, WATCH AS MY GLORY NOW TAKES CENTRE-STAGE IN THIS LAND, FOR MY SONS AND DAUGHTERS WILL ARISE AND SHINE IN THIS NATION AND ALL NATIONS SHALL BE DRAWN TO THE BRIGHTNESS OF THEIR RISING, BELOVED LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING IN THESE DAYS, FEAR NOT! BUT TRUST IN MY DIVINE PROVIDENCE, YES! FOR MY WAYS ARE STRANGE AND MYSTERIOUS BUT I TELL YOU THE TRUTH I WILL HAVE MY WAY AND I WILL HAVE THE LAST SAY IN THIS NATION. I WILL SHARE MY GLORY WITH NO MAN, FOR I AM THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISSAC AND JACOB AND I SHALL BRING TO PASS MY COVENANT PROMISES FOR THIS GREAT NATION”, says the Spirit of God.’

Big Ben prophecies update

An intriguing juxta-positioning of photo with article under page 4’s ‘Brexit chaos’ banner (front page: May ‘on bended knee’ to EU).  Its publication date is significant: 21st March, the day after the Spring equinox, ie. the astronomical start of Spring – in other words, this photo also indicates IT’S TIME – THE NEW SEASON HAS STARTED!

Daily Telegraph 21 March 2019, credit Peter Mac Diarmid/LNP

Despite the unparalleled political chaos and disintegration of democracy, as prophesied particularly in several dreams reported from Tucson by Tony Puccio of attacks not only beneath Big Ben but also within and by Parliament upon our ‘constitution’, matters are now entering a brand new phase; especially a new spiritual season for Britain.

By Blower, Daily Telegraph 22nd January

On 26th June 2017 Charles Shamp records, ‘As I was praying today I was taken to Big Ben in London, England. I heard the Lord say,

“My eye is upon this land and my hand upon the nation’s time, a kairos moment is about to come! I will cause a sign to come from Big Ben that will mark the moment that I have changed the time and season for the nation of England and the city of London. Everything will stop and people will turn to see and hear. Tell my people to mark the moment when it comes to pass for it will be sign of great change in the land.”

Two months later people did indeed stop to take note of Big Ben falling silent at the start of lengthy maintenance work to the Elizabeth Tower and its clock faces; Big Ben is their famous bell.  (Also see review of Dr Sharon Stone’s earlier prophecy at Significant Timing of Planned Stoppage of Big Ben.)

More recently, Yvonne Coombs was inspired to paint a unique picture of Big Ben. In my Prophetic Painting of Lion and Eagle, with Big Ben she explains its origin in a vision of “Jesus’ blood all over the earth – Yet, the UK was His main focus in this particular painting as I saw Big Ben alone – and He put His finger in it and it rippled out.”  And so it became a process from one painting towards the final piece, and we’re privileged to see below those two different pictures of that process:

By Yvonne Coombs, 12th March 2019

“Trust in Me! I go before you Great Britain and MY WILL BE DONE!” (Yvonne Coombs, 13th March 2019)

Also, watch this ‘revelatory’ report on the unveiling of Big Ben’s north-facing clock on this ITN report of 21st March:

Veronika West notes this event last Saturday, connecting it to a powerful prophetic word she brought in January (A Work of Divine Restoration to Restore the UK’s Foundations):

‘ANOTHER POWERFUL SIGN FOR THE NATION OF GREAT BRITAIN…

”IN THIS HOUR AND SEASON GOD IS RESTORING TIME AND RESTORING WHAT THE LOCUSTS HAVE EATEN. WATCH! AS THE HAND OF GOD MOVES TO SHAKE AND SHIFT THIS LAND, FOR HE IS TAKING US BACK TO THE OLD FOUNDATIONS TO HIS ORIGINAL INTENT FOR THIS GREAT NATION”,.!

Monday videos — more on the legality of Brexit Day

A thought-provoking British video being aired far over ‘the Pond’…Note also there are  strong grounds upon which a fourth vote on the PM’s ‘deal’ or Withdrawal Agreement  necessitates new, legal authorisation!

Has Britain already Brexited? According to some lawyers, yes. Here’s how they lay it out. My opinion? According to the law, I think they are right. I also think that will make no difference to the case. Britain’s politicians have been hanging about in Brussels too much to understand that all are under the law. […]

Monday newsmix: headlines again echo Brexit prophecy (Fulfilled Prophecy #41)

First, check these extracts with emphases added on the need for humility in Britain, as told in prophetic words brought by Emma Stark of Glasgow Prophetic Centre. On 20 November 2017 she reports deep disarray in devil’s domain

‘And then the Lord started to speak to me about Brexit, in the middle of all of this. And the Lord said this: “You” (you collectively, like, all of us – family) “have prayed for a revival and awakening and reformation in the UK for so long.” And the Lord says, “I have heard the prayers for revival and awakening and reformation.” (but) “I couldn’t come as close as I wanted to, to the UK, because I had to resist her because she was proud.”

‘(Many of us know that, actually, if we were scoring the UK in a pride rating, we would probably score it quite high. And we know from the Word of God that God resists the proud, and we know from the word of God that Leviathan (go and read Job chapter 41 if you want and 42, if you want to read about Leviathan), Leviathan is the strongman demon over pride in the earth.)

‘And I heard God say this: “I will allow a bad deal for the UK in BREXIT, and it will bring a humbleness to the nation. And in the humbleness it will be an answer to your prayers, because it will break Leviathan off you. And in the breaking of Leviathan”, the Lord says, “I will rush towards you with revival and awakening that you have prayed for.” And so the Lord says, “Do not fear the bad deal, for I am in it, and I am disconnecting you to reconnect you.”And the Lord says that there will be a move of God on the back of the humbleness that is going to come to the UK…’

Then in Belfast at the end of this February, she brings a significant word on Brexit, the Backstop and Ireland issues and expands upon that earlier word (see transcript):

‘And the Lord says, “I am making some situations [to] bring nations to their knees right now, and even a humbleness to come within the British Isles, says the Lord, “that I may break the spirit of Leviathan off you and your pride.” For the Lord says, “I cannot come near the British Isles while there is pride, because I am held by my word that says I must resist those who are proud.” But the Lord says, “As there is humbleness and as confusion even opens a door to a hands-up that says, ‘I don’t have an answer – and as that brings a sense of Oh God! We need to look to You outside of ourselves – the Lord says, “Then Leviathan breaks”, and then that revival rushes towards us…’

SO, note Saturday’s front-page headlines that Jennifer brought to my attention:

Also, in As the Brexit betrayal reaches its climax, the elite’s disdain for us Leavers is now disgracefully clear, Janet Daley in Sunday Telegraph concludes,

‘So now we have a Parliament which is defending its right to defy the peoplewhom it openly despises – and a government which supposedly defends the people’s judgement in the name of democracy but cannot even defend its own position in public debate.

‘Neither of the two main parties is fit for power so a general election would be an exercise in futility. And what is worst, the people have learnt something they will not forget about how much they are despised by those who actually run the country.

God help us. The great national virtues of reason and decency are about to be tested to their limits.’

A few recent headlines on the humiliation of Britain and our Prime Minister:

Wednesday 13th March 2019

Thursday 21st March 2019

New Statesman 27th March 2019

The content of the last item (thank you Carolyn) displays the arrogant pride and disdain Janet refers to that has poisoned the Remain camp, and which we believe the Lord will also be dealing with in due course.

Is it possible Theresa May’s saving grace is that the Lord sees her as our ‘scapegoat’?  This may accord with the debatable prophetic word of June 2016 that Charles Shamp brought about her mission.

Could the DUP provide Britain’s next Prime Minister and Cabinet?

Ever since Mrs May’s gravely misjudged call for a general election, the Democratic Unionist Party have been the lynch-pin of the Conservative’s minority government.

They’ve been as obdurately tenacious in sticking firmly to their reasonable demands over the Union of Northern Ireland with Great Britain in Brexit negotiations and their infamous ‘backstop’, as has the Prime Minister and her fellow-travelling Remainer Cabinet and her ‘one-and-only’ deal, which originated in her pesonal discussions and  agreements with Angela Merkel for the conditions for Britain leaving the EU.

According to a Christian prayer-coordinator speaking at the Wembley Day of Prayer, all members of the DUP are born-again Christians. Had that fact been true for all MPs for England, Scotland and Wales then we’d never be witnessing the scandalous demise of democracy in our nation. We have deliberately sown the seeds of rebellion against God and our Christian heritage and have thus reaped its fruit of utter chaos of deep divisions – plus several instances of our Prime Minister’s personal and our national humiliation!

In view of the prophecy about that situation I blogged this in Fulfilled Prophecy #24:

‘Note that the Lord is bringing about His word on this issue through the only Christian- based political party in the UK: the Democratic Unionist Party, Northern Ireland (DUP)…

‘After this year’s humiliating snap election Theresa May is reliant upon them to support the government’s very slim Parliamentary majority.

‘This week the DUP’s leader Arlene Foster dealt Mrs May a serious blow as a result of our PM’s lack of proper consultation over the highly sensitive and controversial issue of how trade between Ulster and the Irish Republic is to be conducted after Brexit.

‘Brexiteers’ in Cabinet accused the PM of trying to ‘bounce’ the Cabinet into agreeing a ‘regulatory alignment’ between Ulster and Eire (which is in the EU), thus requiring Ulster to be treated differently to the rest of UK because of its land border with the Republic

‘Upon hearing the Irish PM claim such an alignment would be part of the deal Mrs May was to agree with the EU’s President of the European Commission in Brussels, Arlene Foster more or less said, “No way!”. It came as a “big shock” to the DUP” (BBC News) and so Mrs May’s discussions collapsed.’

May didn’t have the ability to negotiate and was too proud to take tips from Trump, so she wouldn’t learn anything, and Foster and DUP are absolutely right to stick to their guns in not backing her deeply dubious decisions over how to leave the EU.

Three weeks ago Arlene Foster was awarded ‘Female Politician of the Year’ at a prestigious ceremony in London at the Asian Voice and Political and Public Awards.

So if we had a party with the guts and gumption of the DUP, Britain would be better off, in my humble opinion.

This afternoon’s news is as expected, there’s no change in their stance:

Yet again press echoes visions on Brexit: table and chessboard

Had to take a shot of this morning’s The Times on the newstand after seeing opening words to its political Sketch by Oliver Letts:

Recall how Lesia Ebere describes yesterday morning’s vision about the Lord’s starting to cleanse and re-position the United Kingdom:

“During the early hours of the morning I was awakened by the Lord, and He gave me a vision of a large fist coming down from the sky and pounding on a table and when the fist made impact with the table; the table split in half and underneath the broken table I saw a large pile of gold dust which was being dispersed by a mighty wind across the nations.”

Letts begins by describing Theresa May’s exit from a cavernous, packed room 14 in the Palace of Westminister where the Conservative Party’s 1922 committee had heard her promise “to leave this job earlier than I intended in order to do what is right for our country and our party.”

He writes, ‘Having signalled her departure, Theresa May left the foetid committee room at 5:41pm. She was drummed out by a thrum of Tory MP’s hands on desks…’ (‘thrum’ to sound a monotonous hum, or play/tap an instrument in idle, relaxed manner – definitely not what would be expected for a Prime Minister! The complete opposite of resounding, exuberant applause!!)

Yes, ’tis a rather faint shadow of what Lesia saw but there’s a feeble echoing of motion and sound…which is all we can expect of from emasculated, elected representatives of Britain’s citizenry.

Recalling the recent reminder of the chessboard and the Lord’s hand removing a piece (queen?) and thus signalling His intention to remove a leader (Monday’s Newsmix #6), Nick Timothy opens his op-ed (emphases mine);

‘Like the leadership campaign that made her Prime Minister, Theresa May’s premiership has been truncated, suddenly but inevitably, by forces beyond her control.

‘She did not want to announce her departure from Downing Street in this way. She did not really want to say she was going at all. But her resignation, she only reluctantly judged, was the price worth paying to persuade Conservative MPs to back her EU Withdrawal Agreement.’

Time for everybody to realise that the Lord God lives, is in control and is shaking our reprobate, sinful nation – so take note of what He shares with His prophets!

The cleansing and re-positioning of the UK, France and Israel is at hand

Leisa emails me first thing this morning, “Here is a powerful Vision and Prophetic Word the Lord gave me early this morning on 27/03/19.  The Cleansing and Re-positioning of the UK, France and Israel is at hand.  Praise God!”

THE CLEANSING OF KEY NATIONS PROPHECY

During the early hours of the morning I was awakened by the Lord, and He gave me a vision of a large fist coming down from the sky and pounding on a table and when the fist made impact with the table; the table split in half and underneath the broken table I saw a large pile of gold dust which was being dispersed by a mighty wind across the nations.  Then I heard the Lord say:

“Upheaval is coming by My Sovereign Hand, My Daughter, and I am transitioning the leadership of three nations, the United Kingdom, France, and Israel, and My Glory shall wrap around these nations; as defilement is prised away from them; and a real heart for My Nature and Will is unveiled. The United Kingdom and France have been as the Adulterous Sisters spoken about in My Word, Ezekiel 23, and their names were: Oholah and Ohollbah. And like these sisters, these nations have prostituted and defiled themselves with every type of evil and produced sons and daughters, who know no other life but that of the Traditions of Men and Compromise. And so, I shall put a stop to the lewdness and prostitution they have begun; through the debauchery of Kings, who opened up doors to generational curses that has brought about defilement for many dispensations of time. These nations have even sacrificed their children; no longer safeguarding their innocence, and My Anger burns hot as they have behaved as if there is no consequence to such actions. They have also dishonoured My Holy days of rest and have jeered at My Holy Remnant, which has brought them lower still. Israel too has entered into a dark sleep and has allowed false traditions, harlotry and defilement to abide within its borders; making room for Religion and Condemnation and honouring those who tout the labels of homosexuality; which has influenced the very core of that Set-Apart Nation. Such evil is a great danger to My People and delays My Purposes for Israel,” says the Lord, “and makes it one of the most tolerant nations across the Middle East. These things shall not stand” says the Lord. “And a great purging must occur for My Glory to come. I am raising up Josiahs,” says the Lord, “and by My Spirit such things will be accomplished in the coming years.”

The first prophetic word brought to my attention is God’s Mandate for the Prophetic Profiling of our Nation, followed by the UK Nationwide Circuit Prophecies; the first of which for 2018 promises the Lord will give His prophets “the ability to see clearly My numbers” – Fulfilled Prophecy #38 refers!

“The EU cat is out of the bag!” says DUP. Is this the deceit yet to be revealed?

The DUP’s Brexit spokesman Sammy Wilson closes his forthright condemnation of PM May’s treacherous betrayal of Brexit in We won’t let the PM or the Remainer horde in Parliament bully us into backing a toxic Brexit deal with this not unkown fact:

‘Finally the announcement of the details of the no-deal Brexit arrangements by the Irish Republic at the weekend, when they confirmed that they can deal with Irish Border trade without any need for one stick of infrastructure along the border, is the final proof that the exit deal is based on one big con job. The Irish border was never an issue. It was used to secure a leaving arrangement which would dictate the restrictive terms of the UK’s future relationship with the EU.

The EU cat is out of the bag. There is no justification for the Withdrawal Agreement. The only thing that those of us who want to leave the EU have to fear is being locked into a deal which only the EU can release us from. This week’s indicative votes are unlikely to present a negotiable way forward so let us not allow ourselves to be worn down by the relentless efforts of those who despise the 17.4 million people who voted to throw off the shackles of Brussels.’ (Emphases mine)

He begins yesterday’s article in fighting spirit:

‘We are now engaged in a war of attrition, as the Prime Minister seeks to achieve support for the toxic deal which she allowed the EU to impose on her and the referendum-defying Remainer horde in Parliament try to beat the truculent British public into submitting to their plan to keep us in the EU.

‘The latest tactic is their plan for Parliament to vote on alternatives to the Withdrawal Agreement. They describe it as Parliament taking control and the message which they are blasting out is that further resistance is futile because the Remainers are in charge. This message also suits the Prime Minister because she has used the claim that a Remain Parliament is taking control to try and bully those who want to leave the EU into supporting her flawed and damaging deal. The threat is that, if the Withdrawal Agreement is not supported, these Remainers will vote for alternatives which means no Brexit.

First of all let us be clear: the Withdrawal Agreement itself means no Brexit. It ensures that the EU has the legal power to prevent us ever leaving except on their draconian terms, which would include a Customs Union and adherence to EU regulations. Those who negotiated the agreement have been quite open about that. They insist that the terms of the deal will be the basis for any future relationship with the EU. They also make it clear that different treatment for Northern Ireland will have to continue…’

According to a prayer coordinator in Parliament at January’s Wembley Day of Prayer, all elected members of the DUP are born-again Christians, and doubtless appreciate the dynamics of the spiritual battle we are in far more than practically every other MP.

However, as the EU’s deceit and PM’s complicity has been public knowledge for some time, perhaps that is not what the Lord refers to by (Monday Newsmix #4 refers):

“There is one more deception to be revealed”

MAY-MERKEL MEETINGS

Could the deception referred to have something to do with details of the May-Merkel discussions leading up to last Summer’s infamous ‘Chequers Deal’? Could the secret details of their discussions be where the deception lies? Even ‘subversive’ as some contend!

I well recall, either last July or December, seeing a large photo like this shown below from Did Angela Merkel approve Theresa May’s Brexit plan in advance? and being astonished at perceiving behind a knowing grin of agreement, a direct look saying,

“It’s in the bag. We sealed the deal!”

And maybe on that trip to Berlin last December, the Lord locked Theresa May into her car to make her think and realise she shouldn’t be meeting this person???

Vision of The Rock in Parliament

Have just received the following email from one of my lead contributors of material on the EU. Dave Chapman informs me,

“We had a gathering here last Thursday and one sister who was very encouraged from the ministry time had a waking picture/dream the next morning. She is a trusted friend and  woman of God. I felt it to be quite significant and have her permission to send on to you for encouragement and use if you choose.”

The Vision:

‘This morning as I awoke, God gave me a picture of a small rock that was thrown into the meeting chamber of the Houses of Parliament and it knocked the Mace to the floor. The rock was grey and spherical but I had the word ‘cornerstone’.

‘The rock then continued to grow and crushed the pews where the MPs sit and then it outgrew the chamber and crushed the walls of the Houses or Parliament to the extent that people who came to see the Houses of Parliament could see the rock poking out of the building.’

The Explanation:

‘The Rock is Jesus and God is not only shifting and shaking Parliament but He is also dismantling it and He will rebuild it. The rebellion and disobedience over Brexit has caused this and He is humbling Parliament and taking over this and the UK through our rebellion and disobedience.

‘The new Parliament and His glory through it and this nation will be attractive to many over the World. This will go out from the UK – both His rule and reputation over what He’s done here to the nations in parallel with the Gospel.’

Dave adds, “The Mace in Parliament is the symbol of royal authority and without it neither House can meet or pass laws. The House of Commons’ mace is a silver gilt ornamental club of about five feet in length, dating from the reign of Charles II.”

So we praise and thank you Lord for all You’re doing and about to do…

This vision immediately brings to mind king Nebuchadnezzar’s very troubling dream of a huge statue demolished by a small rock, and of OT prophet Daniel’s Holy Spirit-inspired full account of the secret dream and its meaning interpretation.:

“…You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth….”

On the legality of amending 29th March as Brexit Day

Thank you to ‘Jean F’ for sending this useful opinion which may help us understand the complexity of the PM’s attempt to change the law over our leaving the EU this Friday. It is offered purely for information purposes only as I’m unable to speak for or endorse its content. It may, however, answer Nicholas comments to NI-Eire P/Update #5:

NI-Eire Prophecy Update #6: DUP prefers Brexit delay to the ‘prison’ of May’s Withdrawal Agreement

Further to the prophetic words recently given to Emma Stark and to Veronika West on a delay to Brexit and developments in the Backstop to PM May’s Withdrawal Agreement, this afternoon the DUP delivers a hammer blow to Theresa May… . This news reads:

‘The DUP has delivered a hammer blow to Theresa May’s chances of getting her deal agreed by MPs as the party said a one year delay would be a “better strategy” than the “prison” of the Withdrawal Agreement.  [Some say recent proposals would move the UK from ‘vassalage’ to ‘slavery’: RB]

‘Sammy Wilson, the party’s Brexit spokesman, said that if Brexit was postponed for 12 months the UK would at least “have a say on the things which affect us”.

‘The support of the DUP’s 10 MPs is viewed as crucial to Mrs May’s hopes of securing a House of Commons majority for her deal which has already been crushed twice.

‘Writing for The Telegraph, Mr Wilson said: “Even if we are forced into a one-year extension, we at least would have a say on the things which affect us during that time and would have the right to unilaterally decide to leave at the end of that one-year period through the simple decision of not applying for a further extension.

“Surely this is a better strategy than volunteering to be locked into the prison of the withdrawal deal with the cell door key in the pocket of Michel Barnier?”

NI-Eire Prophecy Update #5: yet again, NO need for a hard border!

Within the Brexit Central briefing received this morning I read this (emphasis mine):

‘Of course, one of the scare stories that has repeatedly been propagated by anti-Brexit voices about the prospect of a no-deal Brexit is that it would demand a hard border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. So it was intriguing to read yesterday not only that Taosieach Leo Varadkar is now confident of keeping border invisible in ‘No-deal’ Brexit, a special arrangement can be found to keep the border in Ireland invisible in such a scenario but also that the EU is now saying they are “working very closely with Irish authorities to try and perform controls away from border”.

‘All of which prompts the question as to why such arrangements could not have been on the agenda all along, rather than the EU insisting on the potentially suffocating Irish backstop being included in the Withdrawal Agreement. Do we think the EU has been negotiating in bad faith?’

All as stated back in December!
