Fine words Mr Hague, when will they apply here?

William Hague has been speaking to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva today about Libya and the Middle East.  But among his fine words was yet another example of double standards, as he said:

We have a responsibility to encourage governments to meet the legitimate demands of their people…

OK. So while Hague and Co are rushing around delivering fine speeches encouraging foreign governments to meet the legitimate demands of their people, who is going to encourage our government to meet our legitimate demands?

Where is our referendum on EU membership?  Where are the powers the Conservatives promised to repatriate from the EU?  Where is the repeal of the damaging Human Rights Act?  Where is the reduction in swingeing fuel duty?

Before grandstanding on the world stage perhaps it would be appropriate for the politicians to practice what they preach at home.

    He’s a little sh*t.

    But they are at home. The world stage is their home. Britain just happens to be the country where they were sent to be elected.

    Unfortunately SWBK, I’m sure they all know precisely what they’re saying, but they don’t care. They know we will not riot en masse. If rioting was likely it would have happened against Brown.

    They will continue to act against the will of the majority of the British people and then retire to the EU gravy train.

    My exact thoughts when I heard him give the speech.
    Never mind Libya – how about the U.K.?

    Hypocrisy? certainly!

    Double standards? Absolutely!

    These mental midgets do not wear the comic opera uniform of Gaddafi but they certainly share character traits. But like our taxes which is sent to foreigners by the tens of billions each year real genuine democracy is not for domestic consumption.

    True patriotism escapes them, honour and integrity and honesty are alien concepts to them, in fact judging them by their actions they might as well be aliens, some form of alien slime mould made up to look human.

    What goes through the mind of Quislings and traitors like Hague I wonder when he utters his sickening hypocrisy? The FO have been very keen on the likes of him because of the special hold and influence they can exert. I cannot fathom how people could betray their own country and sell out their own people, lying and cheating and deceiving all the way.

    I suppose their puffed pretentious preening on the world stage is some kind of psychological escape from the mundane domestic chore of representing the interests of those who elected them.
    I have no doubt that if we dared to rebel against their poisonous treason they would be as cruel and nasty as any of the worlds despots.

    The Quisling establishment are not listening to us because they dont have to listen to us and because they cannot yet hear us, we are in error in believing they are like us and hold our values, they dont. Until we raise our collective voice and force them to hear us we are simply swimming in their direction, if not swimming the then certainly being carried along in their current. They will not listen until we force them to listen and to do that we need a million people on the streets demanding that that they hear us.

    All we can do at present is stand witness and pass on the truth as we see it to those who will listen and understand, a point in time will come and how far down the road that is will depend on our collective nature. This collective nature is an essential part of our national soul, we are slow to anger and we have not yet reached the tipping point. We have not spoken yet. One thing is for certain though, there will be no democratic solution through the ballot box and the Quislings know it. If it looked like they were in any danger they would simply cheat and the procedures and tactics are already being constructed to block that avenue of change. Until we can put the fear of God into them they will continue to laugh at us and bully us and take advantage of our nature.

    Those who now lead us are not like us, these people have nothing in common with us and we will never truly have their measure until we realise that, they think they have won so their arrogance will bloom and prosper and grow as will their hatred of us. They truly hate and despise us as a bully hates and despises their victims and this is natural and will ultimately lead to their downfall. Their ultimate downfall will be their own arrogance.

    I think Hague is ready to go..possibly to The Lords (but who knows maybe The EU) and as director of various companies/quangos.
    It is in both The UK and Israel’s strong interest he does walk.
    A push can always help.
    The Mail has turned on him.
    Giving him a moniker the public and msm can use will help the move.
    The Ice Cream Foreign Secretary starts the bidding. The Ice Cream Foreign Secretary who melts under pressure. Any one got a more telling one ?

    Tis all a great big pile of bollocks isn’t it…….

    They will be astonished…

    Didn’t Hague once brag that he downed 14 pints of beer a night? Well, 14 doesn’t scan too well, but maybe he should be known as billy ten pints. Or billy baseball (for that ridiculous hat he once wore). Or maybe billy the pig (because he seems to enjoy troughing along with the rest of the slime that oozes from Parliament. And that’s from someone who once thought he was a straightforward kind of chap. How more wrong could I have been.

    Never bought into that b*llocks about Hague, he might have meant that he once drank 14 babychams! It sounded at the time like he was trying to big up his manly credentials, it might have been more convincing is he had turned wearing a hard hat tool belt leather chaps and a leather forage cap while sporting a huge luxurious moustache.

    Not being a bloke I can only imagine that a real man the likes of Hague wish to project themselves to be do not need to brag about beer consumption.

    Mind you, he may be telling the truth….mega drinking can shrink male bollocks………consistent surely?.
