The madness that is the UK today
Well, just where does one start with a week like this has been. We have had the resignation of our less than illustrious, prime minister, Liz ( thick as two short planks) Truss. She has been in power ( well sort of) for a grand total of 6 weeks, during which she( together with her handlers) has virtually destroyed the UK economy.
Now when I say “ her handlers, I mean the people who put her there in the first place and controlled her every move. These are the people who form the ERG ( European Research Group) A secretive group of Tory MPs dedicated to withdrawal from the EU. People, the likes of Jacob Rees Mogg, Boris Johnstone, and various other serial incompetents. Who, not satisfied with dragging the UK out of the EU and all the chaos that has caused, now seek to control the government of the UK using far-right fascist ideology.
These are the people who, not satisfied with causing mayhem within a huge swathe of commercial enterprises throughout the UK, are actively ploughing vast sums of money into Ukraine ( and Zelensky’s Swiss bank accounts) at the behest of NATO’s masters, the US, with the objective of destroying Russia and sharing out the spoils of that country’s vast resources.
Now we have another leadership contest and guess who has put his name down? Yes, the master clown himself Boris Johnston. Unbelievable but true, we could actually have him back as prime minister a matter of months after he was forced to resign after a flood of revelations of dishonesty, lying and indeed law-breaking. This is breathtaking stupidity and shows the tory party are really scraping the bottom of the barrel for talent.
One thing is sure and that is, if that objectional creep becomes prime minister then it is open house on anarchy and law-breaking, after all, if a prime minister can break the law then why should anyone else bother about it.
Meanwhile, with the Tory government in meltdown, we have Nicola Sturgeon looking like a rabbit caught in the headlights of a car., She had promised that the next general election would be a plebiscitary election for independence if the supreme court had not at that point given their opinion that Scotland could hold a referendum. Well, guess what? Although she has been calling for a general election, she has made it plain that it would not be anything to do with independence. Every time that woman opens her mouth she is either telling an untruth or explaining that the last time we thought she promised something we misunderstood what she had said. Just like when she appeared in front of the Holyrood enquiry into her conspiracy to jail an innocent man. She obfuscated, couldn’t remember and deliberately mislead 50 times during that one evidential interview.
As a complete contrast, Alex Salmond has stated that Holyrood should immediately table an independence bill and then call a Constitutional Convention with all independence-minded MPs, MSPs and councillors to progress Scotland’s claim of right. This, while the UK government are in complete disarray. That makes complete sense but Sturgeon won’t do anything that will upset her masters in Westminster, she is a disgrace.
The war in Ukraine goes on with the US leading Europe by the nose and sanctions on Russia causing chaos in European countries. The criminal Zelensky gets richer by the day as money pours into Ukraine. It is just as well the countries in Europe do not need the billions handed over to Zelensky and his fellow Nazis.
So, another Friday night and a few pints in Mennies after another very busy week. Been getting itchy feet again and at the end of next week, I will be heading to Asia for a wee break. A couple of days in Singapore, a wee cruise and a few days in Thailand. Looking forward to getting away again and no doubt you will be hearing from “A Nautical Nomad”.
So in this very troubled world, I raise my glass wishing my friends the world over a good and peaceful weekend and remember.
There are many injustices in the world and they are good travelling companions of the silent people.
