Boris Johnson, lying in intensive care three weeks ago might have experienced at a personal level the threat that it presents to the body of the nation and the body politic. But while propagandists point to Boris and tell is in fervid tones, “See, if it can strike The Prme Minister down it can hit any of us,” as if we are all too stupid to remember that, love him or hate him, Boris has had a torrid few months, working long hours, in stressful situations, travelling around the world, fighting an election, seeing Brexit through and then having to deal with ihis pandemic. He must have been drained, and exhaustion will wreck the mammilian immune system as effectively as the lockdown is wrecking the economies of the developed nations.
Covid – 19 will seek vulnerable immune system and attack ruthlessly as if it was desigbed to do just that. The virus does not know what it is doing of course, but that’s how evolution works; it is not a meachanistic process as many who call themselves scientists appear to think. Survival of the fittest does not necessarily mean the biggest, strongest, fastest runners or best fighters although any of those can be an advantage in evolutionary terms, as can having a bullet proof immune system. COVID-19 has proved it is not the monster some research grant phishing scientists and the more hysterical sectors of the media would have us believer. It is surely a nasty virus but the biggest problem it is giving us at the moment is its inconsistency.
Its workings are mysterious. There is still no clear picture of how it spreads. Even in countries that cannot be accused of fiddling their figures there remains no certainty as to how many people are dying of it, let alone how many have contracted it. This has not been helped by misreporting and references in official statistics to “Coronavirus – related deaths,” rather than giving numbers of peoplw who died prinicpally of COVID-19. To formulate a policy for dealing with the virus, then, is not simply a matter of following ‘the science,’ most of which is science fiction anyway. Even the world’s most brilliant epidemiologists know themselves to be groping after solutions in fog. There is no self-evident path to defeating SARS-Cov-2.
Having said, it is still difficult to to accept that the Prime Minister, during the fortnight he has spent at his official retreat, Chequers, convalescing after a bout of serious illness some cynics have said seemed perfectly timed and far too convenient, will not have reflected on whether, in the days before he was rushed to hospital, he might possibly have done things differently.
The Government’s campaign against Covid-19 started well, with the government looking at the statistics and seeing that the virus disproportionately attacked the old and frail, the chronically ill and those with compromised immune systems.A cynic might conclude it could have been designed to be used by a brutally tyrannical anauthoritarian regime that wanted to cull its ‘useless eaters’ to borrow a phrase from Nazi Germany especially when we consider the suspected origins of COVID – 19
Taking note of these things our government’s initial plan was to protect the old and those with chronic health problems and known vulnerabilities and, following the advice of serious epidemiologists, let the outbreak run its course as these waves of infection historically tend to run out of steam after two or three months. Such balanced and level headed scientific advice is ignored however, in favour of more lurid and sensational narratives.
What shocked the public most at the height of the panic was the sheer hysteria that hit the airwaves and newsprint. Suddenly the disgraceful and discredited Professor Neil Ferguson was coming out with the same hysterical numbers as he did with foot and mouth, swine flu, bird flu, MERS and BSE. What…..we all asked, was he even still doing in the job, let alone advising the government,
Someone in the civil service must have had a hotline to the media and I suspect it has something to do with Bill Gates and his billions, Gates has assiduously been trying to insert himself into this crisis, yet have no qualifications in biology or medicine. But that would not stop a man of such monstrous arrogance, he had no qualifications or professional experience when he foisted a shoddy operating system for small computers on the world.
Boris must ask himself why he was so easily swayed from a well thought out plan by a media he knows is against his government, and a suspicion he must have had of another civil service attempt at sabotaging the government. Surely he could have stood back and asked for a second or third opinion. After all there are very many laboratories who do not rely on globalist millions who are just as capable of giving sound advice.
If I had a three times failed professor showing me a model very similar to those previously overhyped models, all my antennae would be bouncing around. I suppose we are seeing the result of a sclerotic and lazy civil service who think they can make mistakes and slide into the shadows, leaving ministers to take the can. Boris needs to now get a grip with the civil service and indeed Imperial College and kick them out of touch.
Prior to his illness, the only ideal that ever seemed to stir Johnson to matching flourishes of emotion was what he has always lauded as Britain’s “ancient and basic freedoms” — but, standing outside No 10 on the day of his return to active duty, he insisted once again that the need to save the NHS from being overwhelmed to priority over releasing us all from house arrest. Before he fell ill, Boris had spoken od a laissez fair approach, allowing the general population to develop herd immunity. Now he speaks of lockdown measures continuing indefinitely unless a vaccine is found. One has to wonder was he got at whike in hospital by wannabe Galactic Emperor Bill Gates who has called for lockdown measures to remain in place and public gatherings be banned until every human on the planet has been vaccinated. It will not come as a surprise to many to learn that Mr. Gates owns via his “charitable” foundation, a vaccine developer and manufacturer.
From his words, spoken outside Downing Street yesterday Boris appears to have lost his nerve, he no longer speaks as one prepared to stand up to the “scientists” of the academic commmunity (aka CHIMPS – Completely Hopeless In Most Practical situations) or the bureaucrats of The United Nations and its various offshoots. He must become a hawk and rescue the UK. With an non – functioning economy there will be vastly reduced tax revenue, no money for the NHS, welfare payments and other public sector services. The longer lockdown continues the more self employed workers and private sector companies go bust so the welfare bill goes up as tax revenue is driven down still further . Public sector workers you are safe now and enjoying your sun tan paid by the private sector but if money reduces even your jobs are in danger. But Boris, who was actutely aware of these things now seems oblivious to all except the advice of incompetent and discredited scientists and that charlatan Bill Gates who is interested only in advancing the interests of his vaccine company.
It appears to me he’s been lured to The Dark Side by Galatic Emperor Palpatine Gates. Was he given one of the Gates Foundations secret vaccines while he was in hospital perhaps? The Microsoft founder has spoken publicly of using vaccines to reduce population and control behaviour. And something must have immunised Boris against common sense.
Sensible members of the public and a number of private hospitals were saying the Government should stick with the original plan, we are not stupid, we can read the statistics and understand that COVID – 19 does not cause serious illness in the majority of us . The electorate was fully behind Boris when he was talking in those terms and we are a sensible law abiding country. However if the lockdown contunues and increasingly ridiculous news stories are used to justify iy, there will be civil unrest
What shocked the majority was the sheer hysteria that hit the airwaves. Suddenly that disgraceful and discredited Professor Neil Ferguson was coming out with the same hysterical numbers as he did with foot and mouth, swine flu, SARS, MERS and BSE. And our elected leaders, on advice from their civil servants were listening to him.
Someone in the civil service must have had a hotline to the media and I suspect it has something to do with Bill Gates and his billions, after all Imperial College London, where Ferguson is a tenured professor receives massive injections of funding from The Gates Foundation.
Boris must ask himself (and when he has a credible answer, tell us,) why he was so easily swayed from a well thought out plan by a media he knows is against his government, and a suspicion he must have had of another civil service attempt at sabotaging the government. Surely he could have stood back and asked for a second or third opinion. After all there are very many laboratories who do not rely on globalist millions who are just as capable of giving sound advice.
When a failed professor witha 100% RECORD OF BEING WRONG ON PANDEMIC PREDICTIONS showS US a model very similar to those previously overhyped models, the news industry’s antennae should be bouncing around. Instead we are seeing the result of a sclerotic and lazy civil service who think they can make mistakes and slide into the shadows, leaving ministers to take the can. Boris needs to now get a grip with the civil service and indeed Imperial College and kick them into touch.
We are just learning that /Nasty, neo – Nazi supporters of the far – left, Jew hating Labour party, it’s Trotskyite leader Jeremy Corbyn and his propaganda chief, the Stalinist John McDonnell, have mobbed the market hall in the small Lancashire town of Westhoughton, where Boris Johnson was due to meet voters and traders today.
According to reports from local radio stations Johnson’s visit was cancelled at short notice due to what the Conservative Party describe police “security concerns”.
A group of protesters had gathered before the Prime Minister’s arrival.
One witness tweeted: “The police have now arrived and Westhoughton Market is in lockdown after market traders say protestors tried to force their way in.”
There was a similar incident in Rochester, Kent yesterday, when rabid, neo – fasist Labour supporters forced the cancellation of a walkabout after police fears that the feral hysterial that drives left wing hatred of anyone who disagrees with them would override civilised values and in their frenzied determination to tear the Prime Minister to sheds, the drug crazed, anti – Semitic crusties would injure or even kill members of the public.
Can any sane person believe a party that encourages such sociopathic paskudnyaks are fit to run the country?
As the loony left tried to claim Boris is chickening out of facing the people, but conservative sources say (correctly according to law,) that the police have the final say and that security considerations determine what happens.
As Britain gears up for a General Election on December 12, accusations fly from both sides in the Brexit debate about Boris Johnson’s deal.
“It’s a betrayal, not really Brexit, it will leave us still subject to EU laws and trade regulations,” Leave supporters say.
“It will trash our economy, destroy the value of the pound, cause massive increases in unemployment and leave us politically isolated in a hostile world,” say the people who for three years have tried all sorts of stunts to thwart Brexit.
So where does that put the majority of us who voted Leave on the basis of a considered review of evidence rather than some ideological agenda?
No, you can’t always get what you want
No, you can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometime, you just might find
You get what you need
So sang the rolling stones more years ago than I care to remember. It was good advice that I, as a Leave voter who voted LEAVE (in capital letters), not leave with a dodgy deal, leave but stay in a customs union and subject to EU laws and certainly not “think about leaving and then decide to have another referendum,.” after my experience of working for the EU I wanted a clean break.
But I was under no illusions, you can’t always get what you want annd knowing the political and legal establishment, the media, much of the business community and academe were rabidly pro EU and all that it stands for it would have been unreasonable to expect we’d get clean away.
The EU did not want to let us go, our own political parties and opinion makers were hopelessly divided and gave no leadership, .and when the Conservative Party backroom deal makers shoehorned Theresa May into Downing Street I almost plunged into despair.
Boris’ deal is not great, there are some strings attached that may be hard to break, but unlike the Leavers who are claiming it is a betrayal or it is the same as May’s deal, I’m willing to give him a chance.He called the EU’s bluff and managed to convince them he was serious enough about No Deal to make them reopen May’s surrender treaty and not only secure some concessions but also open a few gates to amending the terms of our relationship with the EU later.
And we have dates at which various states of the transition will be completed.
So let’s not fool ourselves that a ‘no deal’ exit would have meant totally in the EU one.day, totally out the next, that was never going to happen just as when two commercial organisations merge they do not become a new organisation overnight.
I did not get what I wanted, but given that Boris and his team have rescued us from May’s awful deal, I’ll settle for what is on offer for the present and keep working to expose the EU for the Cultural Marxist project it is, hoping that in some small way I can influence our politicians to progressively increase the distance between London and Brussels and encourage voters in other EU states to step up the pushback agains the EU Commission’s imperal ambitions.
After all it might be what we need to strike a bow at the foundations of the European project to create a federal superstate from Europe;s sovereign nations.
The verdict of the Supreme Court, that Boris Johnson’s suspension of parliament, NOT for the purpose of stopping pro EU factions from preventing the UK having a no strings break from the EU as a (long overdue) result of the 2016 referendum, and it’s result which surprised the elites and the citizens of our recently renamed capital city Wankeristan, has divided the country even more deeply than the brexit vote itself.
Answers given to this question posed on Quora.com reveal that above all, the pro EU side, while totally opposed to referenda which do not return the result they want, are quite happy with judges who overreach their judicial authority and usurp the lawmaking powers of parliament to their unelected selves, so long as their verdict is the one Remain supporters want.
What does it say about Boris Johnson when 11 senior judges unanimously call his prorogue unlawful and he still says they are wrong?
What does it say about the judiciary when 11 Supreme Court Justices ignore the law because they are determined to stitch up Boris Johnson. Article 9 of the Bill Of Rights (1689) clearly states that “That the freedom of speech and debates or proceedings in Parliament ought not to be impeached or questioned in any court or place out of Parliament;”
The Supreme Court Justices, showing that they are corrupt rather than stupid although they may well be both, chose to pretend they believed proroguation was not part of the normal proceedings of parliament. In fact it is a routine process that must be performed in order that one parliamentary session can be ended and another one begun.
You are incorrect. They determined in this case that no reason was given and no reasonable reason could be given for suspending Parliament for five weeks. They are saying the the PM does not have the right to suspend Parliament for no reason or for a length of time not consistent with the reasoning for the suspension.
If this had not been up held the Government could close Parliament indefinitely. That clearly should not be allowed.
I also notice that you are calling these judges corrupt with any evidence.
I have plenty of evidence that the Supreme Justices are corrupt and repeatedly find in favour of certain interest groups, and that the Supreme Court is a politcal device created by Tony Blair to rule on constutional matters he could never hope to get past parliament, and that its members are not the most senior judges in the land but most of it is not relevant to this question, is far too long to summarise meaningfully in a comment and is being fully covered by online news and commentary sites like Unherd and Spiked.
The point people are missing here is that these court cases need not have happened had the combined opposition parties tabled a no confidence motion and brought down the government or supported one of the governments attempts to call an early election. Instead the opposition decided to put their political interests ahead of the national interest and leave us without an effective government rather than face the prospect of losing an election..
The opposition’s problem is while there is no majority in parliament for Leave means Leave, there is also no majority for Leave With Theresa May’s Deal or Remain, and the as long as parliament will not allow Leave With No Deal, the EU will not agree to renegotiate May’s withdrawal agreement.
Most of the comments on the Quora question above and the Supreme Court ruling on the proroguation of parliament (including my own I have to admit,) went with the respondant’s wider position on Brexit, but it is interesting to note that of the answers from people who claimed legal expertise, none mentioned this rather important fact:
The eleven justices all made a single judgment; there was no dissenting opinion, which is odd considering that equally senior judges including the Lord Chief Justice, the President of the Queen’s Bench Division and the Master of the Rolls already made a decision which was precisely the opposite of that of the Supreme Court decided.
Now clearly those Remain supporters who claimed that legally the Supreme Court judges are the most senior legal authorities in the land have far less knowledge of the judicial hierarchy than one would expect from legal professionals. Perhaps the fact that the Supreme Court is not an ancient and venerable institution but a recent politically innovation created at the behest of the traitor and war criminal Tony Blair and packed with New Labour political appointees (probably for the purpose of protecting Blair and his cronies from justice should their war crimes and acts of treason ever be prosecuted,) has something to do with it.
It is widely suggested that the whole of the judiciary has a pro – EU bias, ans the Supreme Court Justices are not the first to allow their political prejuduces to overrule their duty of impartiality.
The judge in the Robin Tilbrook case, in which the plaintiff argued that Theresa May had overreached her authority in agreeing an extension to Article 50 without putting it to parliament and therefore the UK had legally left the EU on March 19, 2019, in the words of Tlbrook’s case, ” wilfully deliberately knowingly and intentionally failed to declare his ‘conflicts of interest'” – which by the way mainstream media failed to inform the people about!
The MSM could not report honestly about the judge’s conflict of interest, because they would then have to explain what the case was about. What scant coverage it was given presented Tilbrook, a legal professional, as an obsessive nutcase driven by hatred of the European Union The Establishment are desperate to suppress any mention of the Tilbrook case, which is why there were been a total news blackout about it. If the Tilbrook case was generally known about, then there would be inexorable public pressure for Robin Tilbrook to at least be given a fair hearing. Any fair, impartial court would almost certainly find in Robin Tilbrook’s favour – and we would immediately be out of the EU. Hence the total news blackout.
Judge LJ Hickinbottom ruled Tilbrook’s claim ‘Totally Without Merit’. Hickinbottom is a Fellow of the European Legal Institute and therefore sworn to promote EU law throughout the ‘Community’ as well as the recipent of many lucrative commissions by virtue of holding that position.
The EU is of course a lawers’ wet dream, the giant bureaucracy produced swathes of new laws every week, most so arcane only an army of lawyers could interptret them in any meaningful way. The practice of Law mis certainly the fastest growing industry in the EU and given the collapse of manufacturing and agriculture due to the burden of bureaucratic law placed on producers might sooon be the largest industry.
Gina Miller. Boris Johnson and The High Court
Having concluded ]it’s three-day hearing in a case that will determine whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s decision to prorogue parliament for five weeks was lawful or not the judges, most of who displayed a definite anti – Brexit bias during the proceedings, must now ponder the legal – and not the political implications of the case. Their Lordships should bear in mind, though if the Remain factions wins the argument they will not, that the English ill Of Rights, which became law in 1689, states unequivocally, “That the freedom of speech, and debates or proceedings in parliament, ought not to be impeached or questioned in any court or place out of parliament.”
The decision of the justices is expected early next week. As thus point, it is imposssible to predict a verdict, but should they let their own political prejudices interfere with their oath of impartiality and rule that the suspension was indeed unlawful, that ruling would mean that technically the prorogation actually never happened.
Lord Pannick QC, the lawyer who represents the lead plaintiff, lawyer, millionaire businesswoman and Brazilian totty Gina Miller, told the court that Speaker Bercow should then be entitled to reconvene parliament as early as next week. Furthermore legal pundits who have obviously not familiarised themselves with the quoted clause from the Bill Of Rights are claiming Prime Minister Johnson, who effectively stands accused of lying to the Queen about his motives to suspend parliament, could face jail time. This is bollocks, to refer back to the Bill of Rights , “debates or proceedings in parliament, ought not to be impeached or questioned in ANY court.”
Ah yes, but that act was passed 330 years ago, and times have changes the rabid Remainers screech, showing their usual disregard for the law when the law denies them what they want. It was passed 330 years ago, but until it is repealed by act of parliament it stands. And as for Johnson misleading The Queen, that’s bollocks too, we cannot know what was actually said in their exchange because conversations between Monarch and Prime Minister are private and are never discussed publicly but The Monarch has her own legal and constitutional advisers who would not allow her to be conned or bullied into doing anything of uncertain legality
While this would be sensational stuff in normal times, and possibly force the resignation of Mr. Johnson, these are not normal times. The opposition having twice voted down acts proposed by the government to advance Brexit, have on each occasion declined to call a vote of confidence and force an election (because they know they would lose,) and have twice voted down government efforts to call an election, thus leaving the country paralyzed politically in their determination to thwart the democratic will and stop the UK leaving
The Fourth Reich The EU in line with the result of the 2016 referendum. Reports circulating in political circles suggest Boris Johnson’s government is already publicly contemplating whether, should a Remainer alliance in the Supreme Cort and parliament force the recall of parliament, the government might immediately impose a further suspension and thus run down the clock to our default leaving date, October 31st. If you are a Leave supporter there’s no need to Pannick yet, there are a few more constitutional tricks available to Boris and every silly stunt aimed at stopping Brexit ensures that when the inevitable election is held, the defeat of Labour and The Liberal Democrats is completely crushing.
How Much Does The UK Actually Send To The EU
Big kerfuffle this week over Conservative leadership contender Boris Johnson facing trial for his claim, during the EU Referendum campaign, that Britain sends £350million a week to Brussels. Originally the Remainers claimed somebody in the Leave camp had said all the money would go to the NHS. Nobody actually said that but if fanatics want something to be true, they can easily convince themselves it is.
The debate over Boris Johnson’s bid to negotiate a Brexit deal within deadlines agreed by his predecessor is going on amid amid a fierce legal battle in the UK Supreme Court that entered a third day on Wednesday. The case is in esssence a bid by the Labour and Liberal Deomcrat parties to usurp power without having to face an election which Labour would surely lose, while political minnows The Liberal Democrats would fall well short of a majority.
Legal challenges to the government argued Johnson suspended the Parliament to silence the MPs over the EU exit, while the prime minister had earlier referred to the move as one scheduled to pave the way for the Queen to deliver a speech on the country’s legal course for the upcoming year. He stressed the prorogation had been given royal consent, with Mr Rees-Mogg, who travelled to Balmoral for the Queen’s approval, hitting back it was “nonsense” to suggest she had been misled over the decision.
One has to believe Rees – Mogg, the Monarch has her own team of legal advisers would would have told herr to withhold the Royal Assent from anything of dodgy legality.
The defence in the Supreme Court on behalf of the UK government is arguing the decision to prorogue Parliament was a political matter and is not in the courts’s jurisdiction.
Earlier in September, Boris Johnson suspended MPs’ work for five weeks (a period which included what would have been a four week break for party conferences, with the parliamentarians not scheduled to return until 14 October after the combined opposition, having voted down government proposals to effect Brexit, twice ducked the opportunity to force an election and voted down government motions to hold an election election, as the debate in the country around a no-deal exit from the EU became exceptionally heated, totally polarising the nation.
Despite having rejected the opportunity to put the dispute to the electorate, MPs voted en masse for a bill that forces the prime minister to delay Brexit until the end of January if there is no agreed trade deal with the EU.

While some Brexit supporters are furious that Boris Johnson’s initiative of meeting leaders of the EU’s main economic powers individually is some kind of betrayal and has moved us away from the likleyhood of a ‘no deal’ departure from the EU , this blog disagrees. Our opposition to the EU is not to our trading with the bloc, but to the surrender of sovereignty over our lawmaking process, border controls, defence, foreign and economic policies to Brussels. So long as we are leaving the EU and repatriating those things and control of our fisheries, agriculture and ability to negotiate our own treaties on trade, defence, migration and other areas of international relations we’re happy. Any deal that does not involve acceptance of the supremacy of EU law, uncontrolled immigration, a customs union (or an Irish backstop,) or accepting the EU’s right to negotiate treaties on our behalf is fine.
Boris Johnson seems to understand this, Theresa May did not. Her team, hamstrung by May’s belief that we could not leave without a deal, caved in to EU demands that we agree certain conditions before negotiations could begin. This put Britain in the position of a supplicant. Johnson, if his position is genuine, has shown he is prepared to lead the UK out of the Union without a deal and suddenly after months of insisting Theresa May’s disastrous deal was the only one possible.
Now faced with the reality that we can leave without a deal, the French and Germans are suddenly wiling to negotiate. As Donald Trump said, in any negotiation the worst thing you can do is let the other party know you are unwilling to walk away without a deal.
Yesterday, after meeting Johnson, France’s Emmanuel Macron, up to now the most hardline pro-EU leader, has described the Brexit ball as now in the UK’s court. He said, while the bloc does not want a no-deal exit, it would be ready if it happened.
Florian Phillipot leader of the far-right The Patriots party, commented. “Kudos to Boris Johnson, whose will and resolve have helped the UK get out of the EU, “Ultra-Europeans are in distress because Brexit is finally happening. This goes to show that when you push back against threats and blackmail, you can get things done.” ” he added.
Johnson, who has pledged to deliver Brexit no matter what, told the French president that he believed it was possible to agree a new deal before the October 31 deadline. He wants the hotly-contested Irish border backstop to be struck out of the current deal, which the EU has so far refused to renegotiate.
“Let’s get Brexit done, let’s get it done sensibly and pragmatically and in the interests of both sides and let’s not wait until October 31. Let’s get on now in deepening and intensifying the friendship and partnership between us,” he said.
My daily trawl through the best of British blogs threw up this gem of a story on the Guido Fawkes site, which has not been officially confirmed by certainly seems to be true and has been reported by The Times, Times of India, and numerous mainstream and new medis sites. The move will be hugely popular with Conservatives and will do Boris no harm in the eyes of working class voters in the industrial areas who traditionally vote Labour.
Boris has directed Stephen Barclay to sign the official order to end EU law’s supremacy in Britain, a move that Steve Baker described to The Times as “absolutely totemic”, proving Boris is “willing to leave on a fixed date with no question of extension. It’s the do-or-die pledge in black and white”. Just one of the many jobs May never got round to doing…
Whilst MPs voted for the EU Withdrawal Act in 2018, which repealed the original legislation making us members of the EEC, it required a “commencement order” to come into force, which Barclay is expected to sign imminently. Not only does the Government’s move show Boris is totally serious in his Brexit pledge, since it does not involve MPs – by which Guido means Remainers – Parliament cannot interfere with the process. Surprise surprise, Dominic Grieve is not happy. The Tories’ wannabe Remoaner in Chief begrudgingly admitted that he can’t stop the order being signed. He’s reduced to admitting he will have to try to reverse it retrospectively…
First, kudos to whoever at populis stopped all the spam that has been clogging things up for the past few days.
Now folks, it’s 2015 and the long
good friday election campaign is under way.
The conservatives are sounding desperate already, Labour seem to have given up and are turning in on themselves with internecine squabbles about ideological purity.
The Lib Dems, who should be busy composing their manifesto seem to be decomposing instead. And Nigel Far with customary grin on his face in pictured raising a customary pint to the customary camera that always seems to be around when Nige is having a pint.
And in this soap opera rolls on where is the comic relief? It is provided by that pantomime character Boris Johnson. It a story from todays news we see that Boris is ready to charge to the aid of his party. He wrote in an article published today:
“There are times when we have to dig deep to finance the future. Just like my wheezing old boiler London, our capital city needs investment to keep it running.”
But when he refers to his wheezing old boiler does he mean his wife or one of his mistresses?RELATED POSTS:
Democracy: Does It have A Future Or Has Global Totalitarianism Won?
The General Election in Greece (January 2014) could have much wider effects than most elections in small nation, the vote could decide the future of the European Union and have a major breaing on whether democracy can survive the push towards government by a global, corporate oligarchy. It look like being an interesting few months if the anti – EU party wins as polls suggest they will.
