This is a scandal?

It’s been very difficult to blog recently. A sense of hopelessness pervades and the frustration one feels with our distant and self serving political class is increasingly turning to anger. The media is largely complicit in this, faithfully relaying the messages issued from our ‘leaders’ without pausing to scrutinise, question and challenge what they are saying.

So it is that we are spoon-fed such deceitful bullshit as that we have seen published this weekend.  First up is the liar-in-chief, the social democrat (yes, I know, the irony of it) David Cameron.  Writing in his favourite publication, The Guardian, this is what we saw yesterday:

It is not possible to give any worthwhile power back to the people from Whitehall when the vast majority of power is centralised in Brussels.  It is a deliberately misleading promise from a man who knows he is lying, but also knows we are powerless to do anything about it.  Sure, the public might vote the faux Conservatives and their Lib Dem allies out of power, but what will replace them?  Just more pro-Brussels lapdogs who will cede ever more power to the EU and put their own interests before that of the people they are supposed to represent.

In his piece, Cameron tells us that reading Tony Blair’s book demonstrates that ‘factionalism is fatal’.  Presumably that’s why all the main three political parties are now indistinguishable from each other and why Cameron’s Conservatives are enthusiastically giving away more national sovereignty as part of the project to cement the UK as a mere province of the EU.

Not convinced? Consider if you will the meek surrender of George Osborne to EU wishes to have oversight over the UK’s financial sector, putting the EU’s interests before Britain’s – and the craven decision by Theresa May to sign up to European Investigation Orders (EIO) both of which, surprise surprise, give away more power in direct contradiction of Conservative promise to arrest any futher export of control to foreign entities.

Despite this, what does Conservative MEP Roger Helmer determine to be a scandal?  Not the fact Theresa May signed up to the EIOs, in the first place but the fact police forces are complaining the orders could result in more work for them… as he says on his Twitter page:

Talk about missing the point.  Perhaps that is a scandal in itself.

    The age old question: What can we do?

    We can educate ourselves to the deceit and lies, be aware of the big plan to eradicate much of the human race, or boycot paying taxes and flooding the courts with impossible tasks. Maybe take to the streets and get a kettling, a beating, or shot as in Greece. Look out the window and you’d think everything is normal. That’s what people want, normality, peace, no trouble – and ‘they’ know it. The children go off to school, we grab a few things from Morrisons, then sit and tap keys, read more on deceit, lies, and add our few words. Then sit back and remember days when such knowledge was unknown, when weekends were picnics in Buttercup meadows, there was no such thing as daytime TV, and a afternoon out was watching steam trains from a good viewpoint.

    Then Postie calls wearing shorts, trainers and a baseball cap with wires dangling from his ears, grumps a ‘sign ‘ere’, and shuffles off. Reality. That’s what we do.

    The disillusion has got to ground level – I’ve been speaking with non-political people of late and they’re not buying the brave new Britain idea.
