Enraged by David Cameron’s refusal to hand British sovereignty to the European Union of Soviet Socialists, Cameron’ coalition partner, Liberal-Democratic Party leader Nick Clegg, resorted to racist abuse, claiming that Cameron, “risked making Britain a ‘pygmy’ on the world stage.”
The pygmified Liberal leader seems reluctant, however, to give up his comfy birth as Deputy Prime Minister, a necessary preliminary to the election that will oust the Liberals from Parliament and make way for a handsome Tory majority.
* Pygmy is considered a racist, colonial-era term, which refers to members of a group of hunter-gatherers characterized by shortness of stature and living outside the state structure in the unsettled equatorial rainforest of Central Africa.
An editorial in the Guardian on October 25 exposed the nature of what often is called “the European project”: a goal that those pursuing it never state out loud. …
… Britain’s Conservative Party, the editorial argued, was unfit to govern because of its continued internal division on the issue of the U.K.’s membership in the European Union, the latest manifestation of which was a vote by 80 Conservative members of Parliament in favor of holding a referendum on the issue. A Guardian poll, published in the paper on the same day as the editorial, established that 70 percent of the population believed that such a referendum should be held; 49 percent wanted to leave the union and 40 percent wanted to remain in it (11 percent were undecided).
One can make many criticisms of the Conservative Party, but surely one such criticism is not that 80 of its members of parliament have voiced the disquiet of at least half the nation’s population about the most important question that it faces. The Guardian called the 80 members of parliament “a disgrace,” by which it meant that the opinion of fully half of the population, and possibly more, should not even be heard in the Mother of Parliaments. In other words, the philosopher-kings of the European nomenklatura should be allowed to get on with their work free of interference—because, after all (and as new evidence further proves every day), they are doing such a fantastic job.
… Emma West was wrong-headed in her rough analysis of what is ailing a Britain she described as now being “fuck all”. The real enemies of a relatively low-paid, probably poorly educated person who feels angry and disenfranchised are not her fellow south London residents who happen to have been born in other countries or who happen not to be white. Her real enemies are the politicians who collude with the banks who ruin the economy and the CEOs running the companies that drive down costs via the importation of inexpensive labour, via the off-shoring of more and more jobs and via the sheltering of their profits from the taxation needed to keep this country a decent place to live….
