Oh how funny! Also typically hypocritical. About a fortnight ago Angela Merkel, the Guardian told us, had been angry -
The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, has sternly rebuked the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, in an unusually fractious telephone call, according to media reports.
I was told by a committed Marxist that autumn was the best time to start a revolution, the proof here being the Russian revolution, generally given as starting on the 25th of October 1917. Well times have changed, Tunisia, Yemen and Egypt have all decided to go now. Looking at Egypt reminds us of the invasion of Iraq. On the one hand most people in the UK wanted a 'better Iraq', on the other hand the problem was that we did not know what better was. It's clear that a lot of the MSM is floundering and they do not understand the complexities. Some of the organisations involved in these uprisings have had either a formal link to the UK or have been in the shadows. In both cases they would have been the reason Melanie Phillips wrote Londinistan.
It was this book, published in 2006, that explained the muddled political thinking behind allowing such people to set up shop in London. From the highest level in the Government down to the police and local authorities and through many layers of public servants on the way this muddle allowed some very nasty people to do as they pleased. The muddle was founded on multiculturalism, the opium of the civil network. If there ever was a need for a 'war on drugs' then multiculturalism should have been the target.
Just weeks ago all of the UK political parties had their own somewhat unrealistic hopes and fears for the future following the general election. A hung parliament was indicated by some polls, however, the variations between polls was too great to take this to heart and there were distractions. Typical was the term balanced parliament, this is ridiculous, what does it mean and what was wrong with the old term? A hung parliament means just that. But balanced implies beneficial equilibrium, this is contrary to what a democracy needs. It must be possible for a majority to make changes, did some media guru invent the term?
An ever closer union? That depends on many things. Opel for example, where to start? Well today the workers at Opel in Germany are on strike. Industrial action in Germany is rare and so Germany is held up as an example to us all. But the workers are on strike because the parent company is in recovery so need not proceed with the sale of Opel. From this we may deduce that the German workers preferred the takeover by a Canadian conglomerate funded by a Russian bank with a bit of history. What sort of example is that?
Are you bored bored by the 'will he won't he get the job' stuff filling the media? Well if you are, this is not for you. A while ago Tony Blair made an announcement concerning his testicles and that job, see HERE
