Political principals

Iain Martin writes in the Daily Telegraph, an article of nine paragraphs - and which on first reading I was about to dismiss as nine paragraphs of the usual political written excreta - when it dawned on me that actually it was rather good in that it showed up the lack of principle Cameron - and politicians in general - actually have. With the points raised, Martin shows (although he probably hasn't realised it) how every decision Cameron has made has been for one reason only, namely to maintain his position and grip on power. In a related article in the same newspaper, Christopher Booker likewise shows how a politician, in this case Obama, is concerned only with his career - and therefore, in common with Cameron; to hell with principle.

That the people seem content to allow and continually partake in a system which permits what amounts to the practice of dictatorship, - and this in a system that is supposed to be democratic - beggars belief. It is beyond doubt that both Obama and Cameron are, indeed, Judas Goats leading we, the sheep, to our slaughter both metaphorically and physically. But then sheep are supposedly held to be 'brain dead', are they not?

Where, oh where, is the politician or journalist willing to educate the people and show them how they are being screwed by the political class? Of the former it can be said that Nigel Farage does try - however it would seem he has been handed the wrong script. In the journalistic field the only ones who spring to mind are Ambrose Evans-Pritchard and Gerald Warner - and possibly Norman Tebbitt, although doubts remain there.

When the people are safely corralled it is obvious from whence the loudest bleating will come - yup, the sheep!

WfW, I have been pondering the issue of leadership, and I can only bring it back to the family. And, incidentally, that goes for economics too.
The leader of a family might not be best beloved by the junior partners of the family, while they are growing up. That doesn't mean one mustn't exert control and exact punishments. But one must be recognised as the head of the family. I can say that admonishments are as much a pain on the giver as the receiver, but we all know (that is us normal people) the final outcome is beneficial to society in general. However, a weak leader, in house or home, is a drain on the whole of us. We can't afford to have socialists in power; they are genetically, or at least intellectually, in capable of rational thought.
Sorry I could go on for hours about this.

Since the game plan is for the entire globe to be ruled as one nation, and that plan has been a century in coming, and continues to this day as Agenda 21.

“The concept of national sovereignty has been an immutable, indeed sacred, principle of international relations. It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation. It is simply not feasible for sovereignty to be exercised unilaterally by individual nation states, however powerful. The global community must be assured of environmental security"

Cameron, as Clegg, as Millibands, as all politicians eventually, will adopt said agenda.

jic: No need to apologise - you make a fair point!

Anon: That a NWO is coming (so they hope) is not in question........

Agenda 21 should be required reading - particularly for those who have a lingering belief that things are going in favour of the people.

You ask why anybody would still want to partake in the political process when we have the likes of Cameron and on the other side of the pond, Obama. It is defintely the fault of the media who just will not take them to task properly. Ok so the BBC with their in-built lefty agenda will ruffle the feathers of the Tories a little, but Cameron has gone out of his way to almost follow the BBC's agenda. Over in the USA it is the same with Obama. The media is largely ignoring protests in Sicily for instance.

Also, you must not forget that their are swathes of people who are more concerned with the love life of Cheryl Cole than politics; beaten into submission during the past 30 years of dumbing down. I fear that something very serious would need to happen, such as the big crash in the 1920s for people to really wake up to what is happening around them. or maybe the collapse of the EU (Oh please god yes).

Meanwhile, who got knocked out of Celebrity Ice Dancing (or whatever it is called)? :)

Further to my last, many people I know - intelligent people - still believe what they read or see in MSM. When I mention that they should go to independent blogs like this they believe I am mad because these kind of blogs are only written by sad men in their 40s who still live with their mums!

tso: You may most definitely let them know that this one is written by a single, 70 year old (in a couple of months) who most definitely does not live with his 100 year old mother.

He is also getting a tad p'd off with sheep!
