Yes you may feel that the UK has presented us with 2 horrible choices for Govt but 82% of those who voted voted for them. You might feel we are trapped between 2 incompatibles whereby one buys off the young and the other the Boomers. In America you might now realise it was not which kneecap but 1 or both and you have chosen wrongly. You might feel wherever in the West you are trapped by a Kleptocracy or Plutocracy or Idiotocracy or Crony Capitalism. You might feel you have a diminishing democracy.

Thus Western leaders are superior to the perverted sex obsessed Islamic murderers of the Middle East, Paris and Brussels and their child raping warlord oracle. I will say now that our past failures should not obfuscate the need to rid the world of Political Islam and the more aggressive interpretations of the warlord’s handbook. The people involved may consciously even think that was their motive yet they continue to profit from it and they continue to make the similar mistakes to achieve nothing, President after President.
