Where Are Grandstanding FUKUS Axis Leaders As Libya Descends Into Oblivion

Remembering a time not so long ago when Libya was being held up by the French, UK and US governments as a striking example of benign and successful military ‘humanitarian’ intervention?

The tyrant Gaddafi (who had the support of over 50% of adult Libyans) had been overthrown by a FUKUS Axis bombing campaign in support of a bloody revolution fought by a rag bad alliance of Islamic Fundamentalists, Tribal Warlords and Common gangsters armed with American, British and French weapons paid for by western taxpayers.

The FUKUS axis intervention in Libya, led by US President Barack Obama, with help from David Cameron and Nicolas Sarkozy as leadsers of UK and France, was an abject failure judged even by the standards of American foreign policy incompetence. Libya not only failed to evolve into the democracy we were told it would become once Gaddafi was gone, it has devolved into a failed state.

The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced training programme for Libyan troops will be cut short a after reported sexual assaults allegedly involving five of the servicemen. 300 members of the north African basket case country’s armed forces have been based at the Bassingbourn Barracks in Cambridgeshire, since July. This is yet another result of the ill advised military intervention by the FUKUS axis that resulted in the downfall of Gaddafi.

Suppression Of News Used To Influence Scottish Referendum Vote

Now, in order to avoid being accused of trying to influence the outcome of the Scottish Referendum (because I don’t believe in telling the scots how to run their affairs any more than I approve of telling Arabs, Afghans and Ukrainians how their countries should be run) I offer for your consideration this news leaved via Oil and Gas People
I don’t know if it is true (so igore any lefties who claim that if I report it I must believe it – that only demonstrates the limited intelligence of lefties. Oil and Gas people admit they don’t know if it is true. I remind you however that the duty of a real liberal or a real anarchist is to question everything but be open to all ideas as long as there are no sensible answers. As opposed to those who hide their fascist tendencies by calling themselves ‘liberal’ or ‘progressive’ who believe their duty os to swallow and faithfully regirgitate every scrap of propaganda they are fed by the government machine.

Read for yourselves and make up your own minds.

Speculation is growing in the Oil Industry that there was more to the UK Prime Ministers recent secret visit to Shetland than has been released. The Facebook page of YES Highlands and Islands has released the following article that has gone viral on-line.

You may remember the Prime Minister came to visit Shetland under the tightest secrecy ever seen in Shetland last week and the national press knew nothing about it. Nor the local press.

[ … ]

Now you are all wondering why the PM made a very rushed, and hugely expensive trip to the Shetland Oils, missing his cabinet meeting, and just making it back to Glasgow for the Games.

You’re not?

Well you should be.

[ … ]

Because his haste was nothing to do with wanting to see us. He did make one tiny announcement about energy in which Scots could save £46 per annum but he could have put out a press release from No 10 about that.

[ … ]

The rig did not discover “sweet oil”, the most highly-prized stuff for turning into petroleum spirit, nor was it in shallower water than the normal 150m some of the other Clair oil is lurking at.

Nor did it find it in quantities so large that “biggest” and “world” could be used in the same sentence.

Mr Cameron did not request the oil companies keep this massive wealth hidden from the Scottish electorate until after the referendum. He would never do that. Just like Westminster didn’t before the last referendum.

Little Nicky and his friends at Boggart Blog will be doing more digging (or drilling) on this topic. We’ll keep you posted. But at least you now know why Cameron and Osborne have suddenly become so enthusiastic about persuading Scotland to vote “no” when dumping Scotland with its over representation in Westminster and its built in Labour majority would be almost certain to keep the Tories in power.

Prime Minister Cheerleading For The Enemy?

Ed Miliband has accused David Cameron of acting as a cheerleader for the US pharmaceutical firm Pfizer’s proposed takeover of its British rival AstraZeneca as he called for the brakes to be put on the biggest takeover in UK corporate history. This is a bit rich coming from the leader of a party that presided over a car boot sale of british assets to foreign corporations between 1997 and 2010 so that we have ended up not owning our electricity and gas supplies, water, and probably not even the steam off our piss, so comprehensive was Labour’s sell off.

Still, fair’s fair and Ed has a point. The Labour leader, who said Pfizer had a “pretty dubious record” on takeovers (he was probably referring to Prime Minister Blair, Cameron has only presided over one takeover cock up, the Kraft / Cadbury debacle,) has written to the Cameron calling for a change in the law to ensure that a public interest test on such corporate deals should be applied to strategic economic interests. The public interest test normally applies to defence companies or utilities.

I don’t remember Ed doing anything like that when he was a minister in the Labour government but beter late than never. It would be unworthy to mention that Ed’s concern for the welfare of British workers might have something to do with the fact that an election is only a year away, so I will not mention it.

Miliband has decided to intervene after Pfizer offered what he described as “pretty weak assurances” to protect AstraZeneca’s research and development base. Pretty weak assurances? Pfizer have more or less admitted they intend to break up and asset strip Astra Zeneca:

Pfizer last night admitted its £63billion bid for AstraZeneca might result in the break-up of the British drugs firm.

Ian Read, who heads the US company, indicated his highly profitable UK takeover target would be split into three parts.

Asked whether any of these could be sold off, he replied: ‘We will conserve that optionality. No decision has been taken about the future.

Assurances my arse, all Pfizer want in patents and a portal into the EU market. We need a leader who knows the meaning of the (reversed) V sign.

German Left Leaders Lambasts Merkel’s Unkranian Fascist Friends

I told you so …

German Left leader blasts Merkel’s support of illegitimate Ukraine government
The recognition of Kosovo independence set a precedent that gives Crimeans, as well as Basques and Catalans, a right for self-determination, German opposition leader said, lashing out against Angela Merkel’s support of sanctions against Russia.

Gregor Gysi, a parliamentary head of the largest lower-house opposition party in Germany – the Left Party – has spoken out on Thursday against German Chancellor’s unquestioning support of the coup-appointed Ukrainian government.

“They formed a new government….. Immediately recognized by president Obama by the EU and German government as well. Miss Merkel! The vice- prime minister, the defense minister, minister of agriculture, environment minister, the attorney general.. They are fascists!” he stated.’

BTW, Have You Met Dave And Obama’s New best Friends?

from Rense:

On February 27, 2014, they announced their so-called “Ukrainian government of people’s trust.”

It includes a rogue’s gallery of societal misfits. Many are militant fascists. They’re thugs. They’re criminals.

They’re illegitimate putschists. They’re xenophobic, hate-mongering, ultranationalist anti-Semites. Combined they represent mob rule.

They make mafia bosses look saintly by comparison. They threaten world peace. They vowed to fight. They urge NATO intervention.

For the first time since WW II, overt fascists have real power. They hold major government posts.

In December 2012, European parliamentarians expressed concern about “rising nationalistic sentiment in Ukraine, expressed in support for the Svoboda party, which, as a result, is one of the two new parties to enter” Ukraine’s parliament.

Their “racist, anti-Semitic, and xenophobic views go against the EU’s fundamental values,” they said.

Europe’s parliament “appeal(ed) to pro-democratic parties in (Ukraine’s legislature) not to associate with, endorse, or form coalitions with” these elements.

All is forgiven. EU officials look the other way. They turn a blind eye. They embrace what they denounced months earlier.

They march in lockstep with Washington hardliners. They mock democratic values they claim to support.

Olexander Turchynov serves as illegitimate president. He chairs Ukraine’s coup d’etat parliament (its Verkhovna Rada).

He’s a politician/economist/screenwriter. He replaced democratically elected Viktor Yanukovych.

He’s Ukrainian armed forces commander-in-chief. He’s Batkivshchyna/All-Ukrainian Union/Fatherland party deputy chairman.

He was acting prime minister earlier. From March 3 – 11, he served until Mykola Azarov replaced him. He’s a wolf in wolf’s clothing.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk serves as Ukraine’s illegitimate prime minister. On March 12, Obama welcomed him at the White House.

He came to meet his new boss. He did so to get marching orders. He learned more about Obama’s plans to rape and pillage Ukraine.

He’s super-rich. He’s a former central banker/economy/foreign minister and parliament (Verkhovna Rada) speaker.

He’s a Batkivshchya/All-Ukrainian Union (Fatherland) leader. He betrayed his people. He sold out for greater wealth and power.

Billionaire mega-thief Yulia Tymoshenko heads it. She was imprisoned for embezzlement and serious “abuse of public office.”

Charges included illegally diverting $425 million meant for environmental projects into pension funds. A second case involved stealing around $130 million for personal use.

Putschists freed her. They did so lawlessly. She was an illegitimate Orange Revolution prime minister.

She has presidential aspirations. She may head Ukraine’s illegitimate government after sham May elections.

On March 7, the London Independent headlined “Exclusive: UK banks in row over Yulia Tymoshenko ‘millions,’ ” saying:

“…(N)umerous foreign accounts were set up in (her) name (and) her family.”

At least 85 bank accounts “containing millions of pounds were linked to (her) and relatives.”

It bears repeating. She’s a billionaire mega-thief. She accumulated wealth the old-fashioned way. She stole it.

To think some leftie bell end was arguing with me in a daily Telegraph comment threat that Ukraine was a liberal democracy now the criminals and oligarchs had been replaced by freedom loving democrats. Tymoshenko’s missing billions Presidential ambitions even made it to British left wing papers, read more on her embezzlement political career in a report in The Independent The latest news on the lovely Yulia is even more confirmation of her committment to that fine Marxist principle of redistributing wealth into her own voluminous pockets.

British legal sleuths unearth Tymoshenko’s millions

Remember a few days ago on Boggart Blog I told you about the Ukrainian politician Julia Tymoshenko, the former Prime minister and high class prostitute glamour model and now (after her time as a successful Ukrainian freedom living democrat) a multi billionaire. her’s a reminder of Yulia on the campaign trail …

All good stuff isn’t it. What a political coup for the FUKUS axis.

Lies Of The FUKUS Axis Of Evil Exposed

“The US doesn’t do pin-pricks,” said President Barack Obama sinisterly as American warships armed with hundreds of Tomahawk Cruise missiles suddenly honed in on the Mediterranean country.
Well maybe not but as we now now, it does do ineffectual, vacillating jug – eared little pricks. Russia, China and Iran stepped up to the line alongside their ally Assad and the FUKUS Axis battle fleet remaines impotently parked in the eastern Mediterranean while Obama holds out the begging bowl in the hope that China, Russia and a few other lenders he has totally pissed off will again bail out his bankrupt government.

The FUKUS ntions (France, UK and United States) presented their cave in as a diplomatic victory to avert full scale war. War almost started by whom? Their willingness to work with Russia and China to probe the “viability of the Russian proposal to put all Syrian chemical weapons and related materials fully under international control in order to ensure their verifiable and enforceable destruction.” was only obtained once it dawned that unlike Saddam’s Iraq or Gadaffi’s Libya, this time they would face an ememy capable of fighting back.

Barack Obama, David Cameron and Francios Hollande agreed to probe the “viability of the Russian proposal to put all Syrian chemical weapons and related materials fully under international control in order to ensure their verifiable and enforceable destruction.”

FUKUS claims that Syria’s government forces had carried out an atrocity against civilians with deadly Sarin nerve gas were always tenuous from the outset.

No graves have yet been found of the more than 1,400 people that the Obama administration so adamantly claims “beyond doubt” were killed by Syria’s illegal weapons?

What about the alleged intercepts that the US said it had obtained between Syrian army commanders? Where is the “conclusive intel” that Washington, London and Paris all said they had to justify punitive military attacks on the sovereign government of President Bashar al-Assad?

And doctors working for the Indpendent charity Medicins Sans frontiers have testified that they treated no patients who were suffering from problems that could be related to Sarin Gas. And the questions about why Assad, a bastard but a smart bastard, would use illegal weapons when he was winning and had the US backed, Saudi funded rebels on the run have not been answered.

There is instead a growing, steaming, stinking pile of evidence that contradicts Western claims, and supports a more credible and disturbing narrative. Namely, that a large-scale killing took place near Damascus on 21 August involving Saudi opposition forces and Western military intelligence in collusion with the foreign-backed anti-government mercenaries. Civilians, including children, were murdered in cold blood, perhaps by lethal injection, in order to stage a provocation that was intended to create a pretext for a US-led military assault on Syria.

It is already established beyond doubt that unknown agents (allegedly Israeli) have four times used tactical nuclear devices against Syria.

The full scale American assault on Syria was all the more pressing because of the floundering regime-change objective of the Axis of Evil comprising Washington, London, Paris, Riyadh, Doha, Tel Aviv, Amman and Ankara. Barack Hussein Obama and his allies feared losing face and did not care how many innocent Syrians died to cover the west’s embarrassment.

Oh and while we are getting our western knickers in a twist about chemical weapons why are we not imposing sanctions on the rogue state that has used them the most.

So Much For Progress On Syria

After recent meetings with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, both USA Secretary of State John (Lurch) Kerry and UK Prime Minister David Cameron returned claiming they were more optimistic about replacing the regime of the Dictator Assad with a western style liberal democracy ( under Sharia law acceptable to all factions opposing Assad.

Little Nicky (posting here and as my alter egos Ian Thorpe, Ed Butt and Egbert Nobakon) told you that it was very dangerout to take anything the Russian leader said at face value and when little Vlad talked about the need to “work together” his likely meaning was “The west needs to back off and let Assad, with help from Russia and Iran, crush the rebellion.”

Today I read this (from PressTV):
“Russia says Iran plays a key role in resolving the crisis in Syria, underlining the need for the participation of the Islamic Republic in an upcoming international conference on Syria in Geneva.

“While Moscow calls for [the] participation of more members including Syria neighboring countries, Iran and Saudi Arabia in the second round of talks [in Geneva], Washington is trying to decrease the number of these participating countries and replace them with those countries who are supporting the militant groups in Syria,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with Al-Mayadeen TV on Monday.

At a joint press conference in Moscow on May 7, the Russian foreign minister and US Secretary of State John Kerry agreed to encourage the Syrian government and the foreign-backed militants to find a political solution to the crisis.

When Russia talks of co operation they have always meant everybody doing what suits Russia.

Western Globalist Agenda Driving Syria Conflict

Ever since the civil conflict in Syria began in 2011, there have been concerted efforts to justify an intervention by the west. Initially this was envisaged by Obama, Cameron and the then French President Sarkozy as a campaign to bring about regime change similar to that waged against the Gaddafi regime in Libya.

Another View Of Syria

Little Nicky took some stick for his views on Syria, not because I was a supporter of the Assad regime or a supporter of the revolutionaries because I was neither.

What upset the lefties who attacked me was that I talked some common sense in saying it was an Arab / Muslim problem and talk of military intervention to bring about regime change was just another New World Order sponsored, Obama / Cameron led excuse for war.

I was right of course, Little Nicky Machiavelli is always right. The NATO powers are now fighting a proxy war with Russia and Iran with the innocent people of Syrian caught in the middle.

This blog has always believed Assad is a brutal dictator but unlike our left wing critics, people so left wing it has to be said that they believe in totalitarianism, abolition of individual freedom and total government control of everything (Just like Hitler’s Nazis, you might say. I could not possibly comment) Little Nicky believes in letting both sides put their case.

So here is an article by an Assad supporter. How true it is I do not claim to know but I do know there has been little truth in the reporting of the Syraian conflict in western media, with the Bolshevik broadcasting Corporation among the worst culprits.

I Would Do Anything To Get Assad Out Of Syria Says Cameron

Syrian president Bashar Assad could be allowed a free pass to flee his country if it would end the bloodshed, David Cameron said today. The Prime Minister said he would do ‘anything to get that man [Assad] out of the country’ but refused to offer Assad a safe haven in Britain.

Mr Cameron is on the second day of a tour of the Gulf and Middle East, where he has faced criticism for trying to sell UK arms to countries with questionable human rights records. Now there’s irony for you, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Jordan, Iraq, Iran and the Emirates criticizing us for doing business with countries that have poor records on human rights. Pity Maggie Thatcher gave away all our oil and we have to rely on those bastards.

Mr. Cameron has also publicly backed the Arab Spring uprisings, which began in Tunisia and also saw governments swept aside and replaced by undemocratic Islamist regimes in Libya, Egypt and Yemen. In Syria there have been bloody battles for more 18 months, with tens of thousands of protestors killed by government forces and tens of thousands of Assad supporters killed by bloodthirsty religious fanatics brave freedom fighters.

While the fighting continues in Syria the nation’s fate is expected to top the agenda for the two G20 leaders.

In an interview with Al Arabiya television the warmonger Cameron was asked what he would say if President Assad said he wanted a safe exit. He told : “Anything, anything to get that man out of the country and to have a safe transition to democracy in Syria.

Like all other western leaders, when it comes to foreign affairs Cameron is a cupid stunt for thinking the wests interests will be served by getting rid of the secular Muslim Assad and replacing him with a regime of Islamic fanatics who hate the west and want to impose Sharia law in their homelands. Getting rid of Mubarak in Egypt, Gaddafi in Libya and Saddam in Iraq has really turned those nations into beacons of democracy and enlightened liberal values hasn’t it?

Were Cameron to get his wish all it would mean is a brutal dictator would be gone. Syria would them simply descend into tribal and sectarian civil disorder.

Unless of course the New World Order get their wish and make Syria a colony of Greater Europe.

G8 Leaders Will Talk About Reducing The Price Of Oil

Leaders of major economic powers including David Cameron will arrive today at a G8 summit in the USA on the back of promises to help families “struggling with the impact of oil prices.” The summit, at the Camp David presidential retreat, will tomorrow discuss a US call for developed economies to release oil from their strategic reserves to try to bring down world oil prices. The White House is arguing that an EU embargo on Iranian oil will soon start to push up prices, a potential threat to Mr Obama’s reelection campaign.

“With families across the world struggling with the impact of oil prices and a fragile global economy, we must renew our joint efforts to support growth, financial stability and energy security,” Mr Cameron writes in an article published today.

In a newspaper article today, Mr Cameron will hint at plan to deplete oil reserves which will reduce prices temporarily but make the developed nations more vulnerable to oil exporting nations, many of which are hostile to the west, holding us to ransome in future by limiting supplies.

The Prime Minister first discussed the oil plan with mr Obama in March, when he said the idea was “worth looking at”. Diplomats said the oil plan will be discussed at Camp David on saturday morning, although no action will be announced this weekend.

Now Little Nicky does not like to pour cold water on good ideas but this is not a good idea. In fact, with oil prices being the biggest issue in the USA at the moment it looks very much like a stitch up to help Obama’s re – election bid. So in the end we the people are going to end up paying to get our greatest enemy, thre New World Order’s houseboy, the fifth-columnist-in-chief a second term in office.

It is all likely to be in vain however. Though Russia is not a G8 nation Vladimir Putin declined an invitation to a to attend while China has let it be know the USA is no longer the world’s most influential economic power (The Cinese government and its banks hold a huge amount of American debt and could reduce the USA to another Greeece tomorrow if they wished,) so things are not looking good for the G8 plan even before it gets off the ground.

David Cameron Isolated As EuroNazis Try To Save The Single Nation Project

Senior analysts and traders in the financial markets have warned that bank failures are likely as the summit convened to work out a way to save the Euro and solve the European debt crisis failed to deliver a solution. The only positive outcome of the meeting was that David Cameron vetoed a deal which would have given a huge chunk of Britain’s national sovereignty away by handing over control of Britain’#s finances including taxation policy to a bunch of unelected bean counters in Brussels.

I’d rather trust our incompetent, spineless politicians.

EU Chief Von Rompuy – Pumpuy Wants To Shaft You Through The Back Door

Bit late with this, the story broke yesterday. It’s worth a look however.

The National Socialist Government of Federal Europe is making another bid to get its hands on the controls of the British state. Yes, that dirty little Belgian bastard Von Rompuy – Pumpuy is trying to use the Lisbon Treaty to transfer control of Britain’s finances to Brussels. In other words The Bastards of Belgium are trying to stick their Federal superstate ambitions up our national arse.

Now this story comes from the Daily Mail and we normally treat DailyMail EU scare stories with some scepticism. This one does check out however. Well we told you the Bureau Rats of ?Brussels would not give up on their dream of world domination – ever.

Von Rompuy – Pumpuy is trying to fuck us through the back door.

European President Herman Van Rompuy intends to use a report on the economic crisis to press for sweeping reforms that will ‘strengthen economic governance in the EU’.

“Ah but aren’t you over – reacting Nicky?” you might well ask. After all Big Society Dave promised us a referendum on any further transfers of sovereignty to Brussels. He did, and that’s why Rompuy – Pumpuy is trying to stick it up us the back way.

Mr Van Rompuy also suggests that ministers should sidestep calls for a new treaty and try to force through the new measures using existing powers under the Lisbon Treaty.

“Yeah well no worries,” you say, “if Dave says he will look after us we can relax, he’s a much bigger bloke than Von Rumpuy – Pumpuy and he’ll see us right”

You think?

Don’t forget Dave is a former Public School Boy so he will be used to taking it up the arse.

Downing Street has indicated that David Cameron may be prepared to trade agreement on a new treaty in return for a deal to cap the EU’s runaway budget.

Now don’t you wish you had taken UKIP a bit more seriously at the election?

Hat tip to the Grumpy Old Twat for pointing us to this one.

A note to Nick Clegg, Vince Cable and all Lib Dem MPs.

What’s the point having three party leaders debates on television and the whole fiasco of the election campaign if, given the chance to do something at last you are going to duck out and let Peter fucking Mandelson pick who gets to be the Prime Minister.

I mean, the Conservatives won, I’m not delighted about that but they won though not by a knockout. So doing a deal that would put a Labour government back in power with the Democratic Unionists, Sinn Fein, Plaid Cymru, SNP and a tree hugger from Brighton all holding guns to their heads for a few weeks until it all falls apart is a betrayal of the electorate isn’t it?

Not to mention poilitical suicide. Get real you self righteous twats.

Abandon The South – Tory Boy Think Tanks Report Backfires

A few days ago a Tory – Boy Think Tank released a report of stupendous and stunning stupidity that suggested we should all abandon our homes in the cities and towns of the beautiful north because is was….well….the better in every way than the south. We ought to move to the scummy south brayed the Tory Boys in a tone reminiscent of Harry Enfield at his funniest or Margaret Thatcher at her most rabid.
Well it has rebounded on them with a vengance with the publication today of a study on coastal erosion witch suggests large tracts or land in “desirable locations” around the South Coast should be abandoned. The waterlevels will rise as the ice caps melt and the land is tilting, the south-east sinking into the Atlantic as the north rises. It is climate change plus geophysics, a double whammy.

Britain’s crumbling coast

So really it is not the north that is failing but the south that is sinking. And far from abandoning our northern homes we should raise the baccricades, take up our pitchforks and cudgels and prepare to resist an invasion of greedy, humourless, property obessessed, demi-francaise, Tories. They’ll play havoc with the value of our property you know, forcing up prices until we can’t afford to heat our homes or buy our pie and chips.

The publication of the think tank report shows that despite Cameron’s attempts at cuddliness, the Tories are still Thatchers party, braying, witless clowns with delusions of adequacy. We must never forget that.

Banning Islamic Extremist Organisations.

Tory leaders David Cameron yesterday displayed once again the shaky grip on reality that typifies Old Etonians. The Boy David enquired of our esteemed (so far) Prime Minister about plans to ban Islamic Extremist Organisations.
The Government it seems has no such plans. But why would they, there is about as much point as in banning prostitution, recreational drugs and binge drinking. After all such Islamic extremist organisations as may exist do not register with the charity commissioners and claim tax exempt status, they are not listed in Yellow Pages, do not advertise their meetings in the local paper and do not meet in low rents premises that have on the door little brass plaques reading:

Dorkton Islamic Extremists Sports and Social Club
(CIU Afilliated)
Members Only

It just shows how much Conservative leaders know about life on earth.

Cameron’s Epiphany

The Boy David had a Road to Damascus moment on selective education this week, but isn’t the Conservatives’ conversion to the cause of comprehensive education a case of shutting the stable door after the horse has been taken to the glue factory?
Cameron’s Cowboys are claiming selective favours the affluent education stops children from poor backgrounds improving their status. Grammar Schools should be abolished they say.
A double dose of hypocrisy is involved here. Grammar Schools now only exist in hardcore tory boroughs populated mainly by affluent people. The eleven plus examination is the only way kids from poor homes in such areas will ever get a shot at a decent education. Otherwise its the sink school that serves the local council estates.
(don’t get me started on the stigmatization of social housing dwellers)
Eleven is much too early for pupils to be saddled with choices that will affect their entire life but isn’t it hypocritical to suggest that selection by examination is any more unfair than the current postcode lottery which has seen affluent parents buying houses and keeping them empty simply to have an address that qualifies their children for a well ranked school even though they may actually live up to twenty miles away, or parents joining a church when they have no religious convictions simply to get their offspring into a church school?
Would Mr. Cameron like to tell us how any of this improves the chances of any children whose parents are not property developers or wealthy professionals
…………………………………………………………………………….
Thought not.

In that case could the Conservative leader keep his stupid OLd Etonian gob shut as he is undermining people’s faith in private education.

Dave Dopehead for PM?

The Boy-Boobs David (Cameron) almost came out (of his starter bra) at weekend when he refused to deny having a toke while at Eton. I doubt it will persuade me to vote conservative but I was glad to hear it all the same.
The prurient interest the media has taken in recent decades in the youthful follies of our politicians has served nobody in fact it has probably lowered the standard of recruits to parliament by scaring off those who have gathered enough life experience to actually understand the realities of the modern world.
All of us who reach the age of forty without having joined “the undead” of suburbia will have done things we would rather were not public knowledge even though privately we might be quite proud of them (yes Liz, I’ll bet your hubby has still never seen that birthmark in your groin.) Why should we require politicians to be different. One of the great political truths is that it is difficult to keep your fingers in the till while dipping your wick (why do I suspect Tony Blair has never been unfaithful?) so a little bad behaviour in the past could work in our favour.
I propose that in future all prospective Prime Ministers she be required to have on their CV:
At least one inappropriate love affair
A minor criminal offence
Several embarrassing incidents involving drink / drugs / trousers

Cameron’s Mighty Wind

It is getting embarrassingly easy to score points off Blair’s New Labour sleaze merchants so Little Nicky Machiavelli, in the interests of balanced blogging will deliver an expose of Tory hypocrisy. It has to be said that we are soft pedalling on the Lib Dems here as their leader, The Evil Emperor Ming, appears to have found his teeth, (they were in a glass of water on the bathroom window sill all the time.)
The story that has inflated The Boy David’s bullshit factor is his much publicised plan to jump on the micro generation bandwagon by installing entry – level wind turbines chez Cameron.
We did the maths on this and can tell you that if the generators run at optimum efficiency for the whole of their anticipated working life the carbon-free electricity they generate will not offset the pollution created in their manufacture.
Nice one Dave, you nearly had us there.

If India Will Have Us Mr Cameron.

Some people may have been cheered this week to find that Cameron of the Conservatives is advocating Britain’s foreign policy should focus on forging a special relationship with India.
While it is good to see any hint that a leading politician is thinking in terms of distancing our nation from the Burger – Chomping War Junkies of America regular readers of the Machiavelli blog may remember that Little Nicky was advocating just such a policy a couple of months ago when Blair was snuggling his nose in to the groove in George Bush’s bottom ready to pump up the hysteria for an invasion of Iran. (That of course was before Hizbullah bloodied the nose of Israel in the warm up event thus demonstrating that the Iranians might have both the hardware and the mindset to put up a fight.)
The American economy is in ruins, all it needs is for China and India to call in the debts and the good life is over in the U.S. of A, the myth of American military might has been exploded in Iraq and Afghanistan and the religious right have so tarnished America’s reputation in the world community all that’s left for them is to become an isolationist, inward looking “sleeping giant,” the role occupied by China for most of the last millennium.
It says a lot for the tolerance and generosity of spirit of the Indian people that the majority still respect Britain as a nation now that the true extent of our colonial atrocities has been revealed, but given that goodwill we can still lead Europe in forging closer ties with the east we can perhaps turn aside the rush to globalisation and build a world community that is not based on consumption and ever greater economic growth.
The America dream was never sustainable.

The Party’s Over?

I guess few of us have been able to resist a smug chortle at the discomfort of Tony Blair this week, especially as it followed hot on the heels of an embarrassment for Hug-a-Hoodie Cameron. The Spinmeisters are coming unravelled.
But before we revel too much in the fact that Blair is about to be chucked out of office for doing something every Prime Minister since 1832 has done, we should think of the wider implications.
For decades Little Nicky has been arguing that Britain’s Parliamentary system with its official parties of government and opposition is undemocratic and breached the British constitution (yes ever unwritten constitutions can be breached)
How so?
The British Parliament is founded on the basis that elected representatives should put the interests of their constituents before loyalty to anything other than the nation itself. The political parties in Parliament operate in a way that requires MPs to put loyalty to party before anything else. The party whips offices are a blatant breach of everybody’s civil rights when they pressure MPs to toe the party line.
Under Blair’s premiership the flaw in this system has become very obvious as the party whips* (very appropriately titled considering the miasma of sex-sleaze surrounding both parties) have bribed, bullied and coerced junior members to support policies which put the interests of the American administration before those of either the British state or the residents (even the non – voting ones) of any constituency.
In future Little Nicky will be exhorting his rapidly growing band of followers to support The Greens, The Rainbow Alliance, The Monster Raving Looney Party, Independent candidates, UKIP (they’re a laugh), Respect or any other fringe candidate contesting any election in the UK. And if your only fringe candidate is a BNP supporter – well the least unacceptable option must be the Lib Dems because at least they support proportional representation, the system in which every vote counts.
It’s a system that favours the voters against the interests of the self-interest party and the “resistance-is-futile-you-will-be-assimilated” party.
Not only can we get the buggers out if we put our minds to it, we can make sure they never get back in.
