It has taken awhile to get my head around the political positions of the main parties in the coming General election.

I am not a member of any political party, though I am an inveterate “peacemonger”.

To me the European Union is a major threat to peace in Europe, the EU cannot expand to the West (Ireland and the UK are all ready members of the EU).

The EU can only physically expand to the East.

But who to vote for?

The leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn MP has a history of campaigning against wars, in fact even Tories who meet him say what a nice guy he is after meeting him, he is by far a better man and leader than most other party leaders.

But there is a major problem, the Labour Party is chock full of remainers, and as soon as the General Election was announced Jeremy Corbyn MP said he would support a second referendum on the EU, a major demand of the remainers, this also sent a coded message to the resurgent remainer LibDems that a coalition between Labour and the Libdems is on the table.

It seems the only choice for people who value Peace above War is to back the Brexit Party and Conservatives for now (with gritted teeth).

In the spirit of Christmas. Wishing peace on earth and goodwill to all people.
