Reflections On A Hard Brexit By An American:
Why would a Hard Brexit it be a catastrophe for the people of Great Britain? This is where we don’t see eye to eye. Are people really going to starve? There won’t be food in the stores? I would have to send you care packages from America? The fact that people in England can believe this rot put out by the press perhaps it the legacy of the world wars with food rationing, etc. NO ONE IN AMERICA WOULD BELIEVE IT. This is the legacy of the world wars for America.
i am sure that all the businesses could work things out for themselves. They don’t have to always rely on the government. I am also POSITIVE that the North Sea Trade that I saw going on with my own two eyes would not stop just because you had a no deal Brexit. The Germans would find some way to continue it. Just put the pressure on their shoulders instead of letting them intimidate you.
If trade got cut off with China tomorrow and Trump thumbed his nose at them, no one in America would panic. If we left NATO, the World Trade Organization, the UN, any organization you want to name, people in America would be unaffected. You wouldn’t be able to get them to pay attention. It would be like Y2K in the year 2000 — a complete fantasy.

What If Trump Were Prime Minister of Great Britain:
What I don’t understand is how May keeps on holding onto power and why she is still PM. Why don’t they hold a vote of confidence?
It might make a movie to have Trump as Prime Minister instead of May. But could you actually have an American running Great Britain? I know Churchill was half American but this would be all American. And Trump is very blunt. He says what he thinks. He has no manners.
Maybe SOME people in Britain would like this but many people wouldn’t like it. He might even be blunt with the Queen. I assume the Queen could deal with Trump, but most people in Parliament would not like somebody who had such an executive approach to leadership.
AND HE DIDN’T GO TO OXFORD OR CAMBRIDGE!!! Also how would it go over to have a PM who was a billionaire? Also being American he would just ASSUME that Scotland and Northern Ireland, etc including Wales wanted to be part of Great Britain. And he would go for a very hard Brexit indeed. He probably wouldn’t want to negotiate with the EU at all UNLESS THEY CAME TO HIM, and he wouldn’t blink first.
Do PM’s have political rallies? He would want to go around the country on speaking tours all the time?
Also do you mean Trump as PM without being the President of the US at the same time? If he were President Britain would be the 51st state? Another interesting movie, no doubt. You would have to get rid of the Queen and get a Constitution fast. No EU then.

Chapter 1: Hamburg Harbor July, 1935
Edward looked from one end of Hamburg Harbor to the other, searching for his wife.
“Have you seen Lady Ware?” he asked Brigadier “Wickie” Roberts.
His superior was about to board the Deutschland. The ship featured the new Hitler turret, which they had just gotten a chance to review in the parade of ships up the Elbe River. He and Brigadier Roberts were part of the British military mission sent to Germany by Prime Minister Baldwin to celebrate the recent signing of the Anglo-German Naval Treaty.
The brigadier shrugged. “Not recently.”
“When was the last time you saw Dora?” Edward pressed.
“Right before the parade of ships. She was in a heated discussion with Frau von Wessel, you know, the wife of the Commercial Attaché at the German Embassy in London.”
The German Chancellor, Adolf Hitler, had been doing his best to distract Edward with probing questions. Frau von Wessel, Hitler’s chief spy, was likely after his wife about the same thing that Hitler was after him for — the Lawrence maps.
A five foot five lady with her tightly curled chestnut brown hair pinned in a bun back against her neck rushed toward him. His wife of ten months looked rattled. Yet she managed to maintain her dignity and keep her sharply peaked black Elsa Schiaparelli hat from Paris straight on her head.
As he took her arm he hissed, “Where is Thomasina?”
“Lucy was carrying our baby. Now they are both gone because of that Von Wessel bitch!” Dora gritted her teeth.
“What happened?” he pressed.
“I was having tea with the other ladies. I turned around to ask Lucy if she wanted a cup. She and Thomasina had disappeared.”
“Hitler used the parade of ships as a distraction to kidnap our daughter.” Edward whispered to his wife as they advanced toward the boarding ramp surrounded by members of the German Embassy in London and various other military personnel representing Great Britain. “I would not put anything past that bastard after he killed Lawrence practically right in front of my eyes in May.”

The American fake news is not at fault here. This Salisbury incident has gotten sparse coverage here just because America is so isolationist and it didn’t happen here. Cheops Books LLC is interested only because we visited Salisbury in 2012 and made it a place of significance in the Edward Ware Thriller Series.
Cheops Books LLC has read that Salisbury is NOT carrying on as normal. It’s tourist trade has taken a big hit. Even people from Great Britain won’t go there let alone tourists from America. This is part of what I am talking about.
Also as to how it spreads, how would you know who was there at the time or who comes from Salisbury if you are a stranger in a strange land? If you are paranoid enough, you would tend to avoid everybody because you don’t know who is who. Also you wonder if these secret Russian agents are still at large. What is their next plan? Are they going after someone else in Great Britain? Who? When? Where? You think you might be unlucky enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The Russians may be claiming they were framed, but that is impossible. Terrorists wouldn’t have access to such materials. The guy was a Russian spy. How many others would know that except the Russians? Cheops Books LLC will agree that it may not have been Putin, but it has to be somebody he knows.
Cheops Books LLC will publish Salisbury Affair by Dora Benley on May 4.
