My introduction to British Politics was back in the days of black and white television.
It wasn’t impressive then and it’s not impressive now.
The choice then [as now] was between:
The delusional Red Team and
and the delusional Blue Team.
Both Teams delude the public into thinking Britain is an independent state when effectively it’s a Vassal State of The Empire of Chaos.
Both Teams delude the public into thinking Britain’s unaffordable nuclear arsenal guarantees peace when all it guarantees is nuclear annihilation when The Empire of Chaos decides [yet again] to use Europe as their battleground of choice.
The surreal state of British Politics is slowly slipping away from the deeply delusional and descending into the domain of the dangerously deranged.
What kind of people are we?
As far as I’m concerned there are three types of people when it comes to nuclear weapons.
● Those who are opposed to them and wish to see them abolished (people like me).
● Those who don’t much like them but see them as a necessity…
● Then there are those who are actual nuclear weapons enthusiasts….
Rather naively I’d always imagined that the third type were a tiny fringe minority, with the huge majority of Brits belonging to group one or group two.
However the way the nuclear debate has been framed during the 2017 General Election (lots of scrutiny on Jeremy Corbyn for no first-strike, barely any scrutiny on Theresa May for yes first strike) makes me suddenly realise that group three must be very much larger than group one or two, because anyone in the first two groups would surely approve of Corbyn’s reassuring no first strike policy, and strongly disapprove of Theresa May’s reckless yes first strike policy?
Is it me or has the country completely lost the plot?
Has Britain Completely Lost The Plot Over Nuclear Weapons?
Another Angry Voice – Thomas G. Clark – 3 June 2017
The The Empire of Chaos began interfering in British Politics after the Second World War and eventually took power in 1997 after the untimely death of John Smith.
John Smith QC PC (13 September 1938 – 12 May 1994) was a British Labour Party politician who served as Leader of the Labour Party from July 1992 until his death from a heart attack in May 1994.
This frustrated many modernisers like Tony Blair and Gordon Brown and after Smith’s sudden death in May 1994, he was succeeded as Leader by Blair, who undertook the subsequent re-branding of Labour as New Labour, winning the 1997 general election in a landslide.
Perfidious Albion is an anglophobic pejorative phrase used within the context of international relations and diplomacy to refer to alleged acts of diplomatic sleights, duplicity, treachery and hence infidelity (with respect to perceived promises made to or alliances formed with other nation states) by monarchs or governments of Britain (or England) in their pursuit of self-interest and the requirements of Realpolitik.
Perfidious signifies one who does not keep his faith or word (from the Latin word “perfidia”), while Albion is a poetic name for Britain.
Leaving the British electorate [as always] to choose “between the devil and the deep blue sea”.
Being between Scylla and Charybdis is an idiom deriving from Greek mythology, meaning “having to choose between two evils”.
Several other idioms, such as “on the horns of a dilemma”, “between the devil and the deep blue sea“, and “between a rock and a hard place” express similar meanings.
The philosophical problem is that the lesser of two evils is still evil.
Call me cynical, but I expect that next Thursday Britain is going to hand Theresa May the landslide victory she wanted.
But she’ll win it for the exact same reason that Donald Trump won the US presidential election: the alternative was too unbearable to contemplate.
Never Get Used To It – Frank Davis – 4 June 2017
May’s support is almost entirely from hard Brexiteers who are going to crash the economy to satisfy their racism.
Of course I want to see May defeated and out of office, because Tory policies actually kill people.
Already A Victory – Craig Murray – 5 June 2017
The practical reality is political polarization and tactical voting.
The opinion polls suggest Theresa May is headed towards a well earned Clinton Moment.
But the big question is:
Can the The Empire of Chaos terrorise the British electorate into submission and servitude.
Seven people have been killed and at least 48 injured in a van and stabbing terrorist attacks took place in London on Saturday night. The first attack took place on London Bridge followed shortly by an attack in Borough Market.
