I’ve said it before but I will repeat. The mother of all scandals is yet to break and there is a reason for it. It was shut down in the 1980’s and is still being shut down. Forget about the politicians in both houses most are dead anyway but this is suppressed because it will bring down the Judicial system which is whole different ball game and can’t afford to happen until all parties are dead.
This is about you and a Big Country album isn't it?
Hahaha that still gives me nightmares 😔

No I’m not talking about inappropriate touching by a bunch of old perves or even another Cynthia Payne scandal this is way way darker than that.

What's bizarre is how the persistent voices of capital and big business are also being ignored in favour of racism. Unexpected.
Capital splits between liberalism and fascism in times of crisis.

And that's where the Great Man Theory has some validity. It's hard not to see the personality and character of FDR as key in keeping the US from embracing fascism (that and the timely assassation of Huey Long).

What I find a bit fascinating about the rot in the Tories is that, before Cameron, they spent a generation in opposition. They haven't been at the trough that long, so how is it that they come off as decaying, been-in-power-too-long zombies? It's *gasp* almost like the Tories and the Blair/Brown crowd have all been nourished by the same rancid beast.

Labour/Tory it makes very little difference other than privatisation and protecting the NHS. British politics is quagmire of utter bullshit and each follow on generation has the feel of being tarnished by the previous.

That's a good point. It's all been what Thatcher would have called monetarism since Maggie's day and even some of May's cabinet ministers have been knocking around, complacently waiting for their turn at higher office. There's some thing very ancien regime feeling about a government that's only held power for two short years.

Prime Minister Corbyn now seems all but an inevitability, which I would never have dared hoped for last year.

Theresa May's also seemingly lost her beloved Daily Mail. She was the Daily Mail Prime Minister.

The idea of Corbyn becoming PM brings to mind Arthur Schopenhauer's three stages of a new idea: ridicule, angry rejection, and finally acceptance as self-evident.

Corbyn has some integrity that's why he's an awful politician.

Maybe I'm just a fuck up, but I've found him more generic and politicianish since he came 2nd in that election. A little bit of mainstream smugness has crept in, I feel, since he's stopped battling his own party. I dunno, it could be that I'm unpleasable.

I agree mate and you are spot on. That's why I said "some integrity". He still has some left therefore he makes a poor politician. When he finally realises that it's pointless and if you want to join in with the rest of the moronic sheep you have to become one youself then he will be a politician. The whole system needs a complete overhaul where we the voters (the important people) actually get a system of fairness where those elected (to work on our behalf) actually bother to act upon promises made to us in the first place.

I'm hoping the Labour party's going to allow its members to deselect shitty MPs more going forwards. That'll be a huge boon to democracy.

Oh for sure I'm all for that. You know if I am the man on the street then it's me you need to impress Mr. Politician as I am the masses.
