Latest Act In The Shakespearean Comedy 'The Merry Whores Of Westminster'

So Liz Truss has resigned as Prime Minister after only 44 days in office, thus reducing British politics, once noted for its stability and the level headed and respectful was in which political business was conducted to the commedia dell'arte that passes for democratic government in Italy.

It was an ignominious exit even for somebody who, though she had promised little, we expected less but in the end, to paraphrase Elton John: 'she had the grace to throw herself while those around her fall.'

If we are honest, few people would claim they expected Truss to be a successful Prime Minister and many of us actually predicted she would only be in office for months rather than years. Was it sexism, anti - Conservative prejudice or,  pure snobbery that gave people such a negative impression of Truss, you might well ask. 

In fact it was none of these things. Liz Truss was the latest in a line of mediocre politicians, big on ambition, light on talent, experience, charisma, communications ability and interpersonal skills to worm their way into political prominence. Yet they do, quite simply they will say or do anything they believe will advance their interests, they will serve any master or often many masters simultaneously.

Consistency and principles, which ought to be essential to the delivery of government with the consent of the people, have become utterly irrelevant in politics these day - all that matters is power and the agenda they want to push forward in the interests of whichever  global corporation, financial institution or unelected cabal of billionaire psychopaths is offering the most money. Politicians have become Machiavellian creatures - supporters of 'the ends justifies the means' approach to pushing their agendas. It is undeniable that the vast majority of modern British politicians are dishonest by nature. Worse still, they cannot even tell when they are being dishonest and few actually care. 

I have now passed the point at which all trust in politics and government, including the state institutions such as the Health Service, Police, Education, the Judicial system have evaporated. Though never a Labour or Conservative or even a floating voter, I can no longer care about which bunch of crooks and liars wins the next general election because the charge of hypocrisy against both parties has lost all the power it once had which signals to me a complete breakdown in British politics as a whole.

There was a time in politics when principles and integrity were important because credibility mattered. When we stopped punishing the hypocrites in politics that was the unscrupulous and amoral benefitted and took over. Principles and consistency no longer matter when you are led by self-serving hypocrites who whore themselves around the World Economic Forum and the financial hubs of the west and east. All that remains in politics these days is tribalism and polarisation. Complex and nuanced debate has been reduced to false binaries - A is wrong because it is A, thus it is proved that B is right - at this rate it won't be long before we witness a level of politics similar to rival tribes of Chimpanzees throwing turds at each other in the House of Commons.

When we replace principles and consistency in politics then there is no longer any real credibility and what we are left with and what we are witnessing increasingly within western political leadership today which is authoritarianism.

 If we want to get back to talking about ideas in politics instead of personalities then we need to get back to principles and integrity once again, to preserve what little political credibility we have left in Britain we must get back to debating facts, elevate political dialogue based on evidence and reason, ,start fighting for ideas once again instead of personalities and crackpot ideologies  for this we need to get back to consistency and principles . If we could do that maybe then we will also see the emergence of political leadership once again.

Lockdowns, The Great Reset and the Unfolding Disaster That Is Globalism

In late 2019 and early 2020 and during the COVID era of lockdowns, mask mandates, etc., trillions of dollars were handed over, (via COVID-relief packages,) to elite interests while lockdowns and restrictions were imposed on ordinary people and small businesses.The winners were the global corporations like Amazon, Big Pharma and the tech giants. The losers were small enterprises, communities and the bulk of the population, deprived of their right to work and the entire panoply of civil rights their ancestors struggled for.

UK Government Belatedly Discovers The Uselessness Of Sustainables In Relation To Energy Security
The policy that Boris Johnson's Premiership will be remembered for is nor 'getting Brexit done,' but the government's disastrous pledge to make Great Britain the first developed nation to achieve a 'net zero' national energy system. The neglect and running down of traditional energy systems (coal, gas, nuclear,) along with flushing money down the toilet by investing in intermitternt power sources (wind, solar,) rather than Putin's war in Ukraine is responsible for the current crisis.

Europe's Economy And Living Standards Are Plummeting
As the multiple crises in Europe deepen with no sign of relief in sight, Oriental Review comments that the ill-considered sanctions against Russia, far from achieving their objective of pressuiring Moscow into ending its war in Ukraine, have exposed the deep rooted problems of the European Union which is rapidly approaching economic collapse. Without offering any evidence in support of its allegation the article states that a large number of businesses are on the verge of bankruptcy.

Has Putin Has Pushed Europe Into Economic Depression, Hyperrinflation and Currency Collapse?
Though it was entirely predictable and indeed had been expected for some time, the news over the weekend that the Nord Stream 1 pipeline which feeds gas from Russia to northern Europe via The Baltic route had been shut down completely by The Kremlin in retaliation for the continued financial and military support given by NATO and EU member states to Ukraine in the conflict with Russia. The European Commission, governing body of the EU, immediately put the community on something close to a war footing, ...

The True Cost Of The Green Energy Boom Is Now Being Realized
For four decades we have been fed a constant stream of propaganda assuring us that green energy was the only way forward if we wanted to secure supplies of the energy essential to a modern society while preventing the environmental catastrophes that would be the inevitable consequence of climate change caused by the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emitted by human industrial, commercial and social activity. ...

Rishi Sunak Reveals How Boris Sold Us Out To Big Pharma and Globalism
it seems most people in Boris Johnson's cabinet during the run up to lockdowns were kept in the dark about many things, including the fact that 'The Science' on which lockdown policy was based was not science at all. Government was effectively reduced to a “quad” of ministers and their 'scientific advisers' deciding on Britain’s future. Rishi Sunak, at that time Chancellor of the Exchequer (finance secretary) was one of them. There were rumours at the time that Sunak repeatedly warned that lockdowns would inflict economic damage that was likely to endure for decades.

1 in every 73 People Vaccinated Against COVID Was Dead by May 2022 in England according to UK Government
The latest week’s data for UK deaths, for the week to 12 August 2022, reports some 1,082 more people than would be expected for this period in a normal year died in the UK. These represent the so - called excess deaths so-called that during the fear and panic stages of the COVID saga were reported so gleefully. Yet now, with the scare narrative winding down, excess deaths in the UK have averaged 1,000 for 15 weeks of this year. Bizarrely this newsworthy story has gone completely unreported by mainstream media, leaving the alt_news community to get out news of what is really happening to the world.

“Science” no longer trustworthy: BMJ suggests treating all health research as fraudulent until proven genuine
Former The British Medical Journal (BMJ) editor Richard Smith penned an opinion piece suggesting health research has become so corrupted people should just assume it is fraudulent.

The authors, meteorologists, physicists, biologists, naturalists and well qualified people drawn from a host of other professions and academic disciplines and from all around the world conclude there is no climate emergency.

Do We Have A Winter Of Civil Disobedience Ahead?
As many people in Britain slap on the apres sun gloop in the wake of what passes for a heatwave in these cool cloudy climes, our inept politicians caught with their pants down by unusual weather as usual have heard that that winter is coming and are making plans for a coldwave. We are in the grip of an energy crisis at the height of summer. Last week, it was reported that the UK government is laying down plans for a “reasonable worst-case scenario” including blackouts for industry and even households. And this is as energy prices spiral out of control to new records every day.

Jingoistic Western Triumphalism Will Not End The War In Ukraine Or Cripple Putin, But It Is Crippling Western Nations

As the war in Ukraine grinds on and Russia steps up its economic war against the west and in particular The European Union, claims made recently by the idiotically 'woke' leaders of Europe's main economic and military powers that the West has a once-in-a–generation chance to severely weaken Russia’s capabilities, both militarily and geopolitically, look increasingly hollow. Putin's critics have cited 'Western unity' as one of the main reasons why Russia will be economically destroyed and politically humiliated when the Ukraine's military finally claim victory.
