Best election moment since Portillo went down in ’97
But as Oscar Wilde might have said, to lose one party leader is unfortunate, to lose two looks like carelessness, but to lose three is hostile action.
I was quite taken with this extract from a blog reposted on Zero Hedge. Not too sure the words ‘conservative landslide’ in the title are appropriate, it was the SNP landslide that gave Cameron a very small majority, but the rest is good reading.
Saxo Bank CEO Lars Seier Christensen reacts to the Conservative landslide victory in the UK.
When you, like me, are used to a proportional representation system, it feels bizarre that the third largest party hardly gains a seat, but still, Nigel Farage has had a lot of beneficial influence on Britain’s EU policy.
Hopefully, Brussels also gets the message but I doubt it. The EU never rolls anything back. It continues to amass more and more control in all areas.
The bureaucracy in Brussels has no self-criticism. No regrets. No matter how much and how often it fails. It just continues the roll out of its powers, and it will continue unabated, until someone says enough is enough. Until someone says stop.
The election outcome in Britain is our one chance to say stop!
