It’s easy to suggest that the media or whoever are responsible for the eclipse of the ‘left’ parties of Europe. Irrelevant even when in power to be frank see Brown or Hollande. I am referring to New Labour here rather than whatever welcome Corbyn is destroying with random precision. This is a more general attack than on a particular party and to be honest could be used against most ‘liberal’ thinkers. It is also in the context of seeming liberals supporting a ruling ideology that forsook the poor and claimed GDP growth as Manna achieved by stoking the purchase of 2nd hand assets and the land they stood on as improved living standards.

57% of the British public suggested that they would support a Burqa or Niqab ban. Now a good many would ban any made up word if it was associated with Islam such is the reputation of that religion. Continue reading “Burqa Ban?”
The terror state Iran is apparently to buy $25 Bn of aircraft from Boeing. There are many angles to the ridiculousness of this:
- Iran is a terror state which would love a global caliphate
- These planes will contain state of the art technology to a country we would like to leave backwards
- The US taxpayer subsidises Boeing to a ludicrous degree
- Iran executes women and gay people for having sex in case you did not know.
- Iran sponsors our enemies Hamas and Hezbollah and has links to almost all terror groups even Sunni al Queada
- A subsidy to pollution
- Iran does not recognise Israel.
There is a problem as I pointed out with excusing US incompetence in foreign policy as being fundamentally about Capitalism – idea it is not morally wrong even if misguided. Actions make it seem more about profit and indeed that the enemy is a frenemy or a device or feedback loop for more spending on subsidised weapons manufacturers like Boeing that in turn profits political leaders personally. We are asked to sacrifice our freedom to fight the likes of Iran as our Govt hands them cheap resources and takes taxpayers dosh?
The other lie that Mr Obama’s Administration and those sanctimonious European Airbus subsidising guys push is the need to fight climate change so why subsidise pollution?
It’s not even good capitalism to boot.
