Another day, another…

Clearly not a safe country, and anyone who suggests it is should be ignored.

I feel dirty posting a GB News Tweet.

Except…
Bravo lad

Isn’t everyone who goes on GB news a bigoted, racist, Brexit loving, anti vax, covid sceptic, swivelled eyed, climate change denying wanker

…and a gammon.

Seriously, no shit Sherlock

In case anyone still had any lingering doubts about the colour of the next government, last night’s by-election results should have dispelled them. Proper mauling for the tories.

Hmmmm

The bit on actual government funding for schools needs wider prominence in the press

Report from a US whack-job conference

It’s always someone else’s fault isn’t it….

Stark Raving Bonkers. As is the little rat sat next to her.

However you view her remarks, she’s dead right on this…

“What has happened in Britain over the past 30 years is power that used to be in the hands of politicians has been moved to quangos and bureaucrats and lawyers so what you find is a democratically elected government actually unable to enact policies.”

That inescapable truth is apparent every day in modern British politics. The people we elect no longer have any significant say in how the country is run; anything proposed by even the PM should be viewed only as an aspiration. Look how long it took to crowbar the referendum result into practice, or Sunak’s flagship policy of “stopping the boats”. The politicians aren’t in charge anymore, Starmer isn’t going to make one iota of difference to that.

Arguably given the conduct of the Tory party it’s a good thing their power has been effectively limited. Imagine the deepest darkest pit of shit we’d be in otherwise…

Was she says is not a lot different to what many, particularly on the left, have said

That there is a cabal that exists to look after their interests at the expense of everyone else - be that Davos, the WEF or whoever else

If there really is this group then I’m not sure why she is so surprised they moved to protect the status quo - it is their entire mission to do so.

What she did wrong was not to hobble this “cabal” first before getting radical

That just goes to show how politically naive she was.

And, at his core, this is what Trump stands for.
To break the status quo, the Washington elite.

And why he is so popular.
But like Truss has not close to a tenth the brain cells needed to live let alone do the job

The last refuge of the inept and the useless - blame it all on the bogeyman.

The trouble with that argument is that it’s basically surrendering a fundamental principle of democracy on the grounds that the status quo isn’t working as one would wish. Plenty of Remainers were perfectly happy to counter the argument that UK voters should decide who makes the political and economic decisions for the UK by simply ridiculing the notion of sovereignty and suggesting that the European Commission couldn’t possibly make a worse job of it than our own parliament. You can’t possibly know the motives of the organisations currently running the West, but personally I doubt very highly that they are benign.

For a given value of “democracy” though.

I still don’t understand why in this day and age we still have a first past the post system - The majority of votes in elections (across the electorate) are effectively wasted. I suspect it’s down to the downright stupidity / herd mentality of most of the electorate who never think to question their “political masters” We end up with shit leaders who do what the party wants , which is not necessarily what the majority of voters want.
