Got to laugh when royalty is preaching to us about democracy...

 

 

Yer but sadly he´s right.

What really makes you laugh is a Royal telling the truth and the politicians doing nothing about it.

In case you forgot who Trump's base is -

 

Quote

 

Trump told a crowd that prohibitions need to be brought in on teaching "inappropriate racial, sexual and political material" to American schoolchildren.

"If federal bureaucrats are going to push this radicalism, we should abolish the Department of Education," he continued.

This part of the speech, a video shows, appeared to receive rapturous applause.

Any Roger Waters / Pink Floyd fans out there?

 

Quote

 

Smerconish began the interview by asking Waters why he labeled President Joe Biden a “war criminal.” “Well, he’s fueling the war in the Ukraine,” the former Pink Floyd member responded. “That is a huge crime. Why won’t the United States of America encourage [Volodymyr] Zelensky to negotiate, obviating the need for this horrific, horrendous war?”

When Smerconish pointed out that Waters was “blaming the party who got invaded,” Waters countered by criticizing NATO for forcing Russia’s hand. “Well, any war, when did it start? What you need to do is look at the history, and you can say, ‘Well, it started on this day.’ You could say it started in 2008… This war is basically about the action and reaction of NATO pushing right up to the Russian border, which they promised they wouldn’t do when [Mikhail] Gorbachev negotiated the withdrawal of the USSR from the whole of Eastern Europe.”

Waters also dismissed Smerconish’s argument that the US has a role of “liberators.”  “You got into World War 2 because of Pearl Harbor. You were completely isolationists [beforehand],” Waters argued. “Thank god the Russians had already won the bloody war by then. 23 million Russians died, protecting you and me from the Nazi menace.”

 

 

the rest

 

The comments are also interesting.

He got his facts wrong- NOT 23 million Russians but 23 million from the Soviet Union, including Ukrainians, Siberians et al.

Hard to tell if this refers to the quote about Trump or  the quote about Waters...or both...

Not really politics as such but more showing that the UK media are two faced ...

The RMT is engaged in economic vandalism - EXPRESS COMMENT | Express Comment | Comment | Express.co.uk

No surrender to the militants bringing chaos - EXPRESS COMMENT | Express Comment | Comment | Express.co.uk

 

This is just a couple of examples of Express journalists railing against the strikes by the RMT and how they should accept what they´re offered because of the bad economy and they shouldn´t be greedy etc etc.

 

Then along comes this...

 

Mirror, Express and local journalists vote to strike in pay dispute | Reach (formerly Trinity Mirror) | The Guardian

 

Why does anyone believe anything they read in a paper nowadays.

Jim Mullen, Keleth, got paid 4 million quid last year according to the link. I have nothing against high earners if they are doing a great job which helps employees as well.

Otherwise, it is a piss take.

So... it now comes to light that Rishi Sunak's wife was part owner of Lava Mayfair Club Ltd (a private membership gym), which collapsed last year owing almost £44million to creditors, including £374,000 to HMRC!
Another of Mrs Sunak's ventures... Mrs Wordsmith (an education business) went into administration last year owing £16.3million – after receiving a £1.3million loan from the Government's "Future Fund"!
OH IT GETS WORSE... Digme Fitness (which she owns 100% of) received up to £635,000 of furlough money... before it then closed its eight studios in London and Oxford... still owing HMRC £415,000!
So ... Mr Sunak introduces the furlough scheme ... and the woman he's sleeping with benefits by up to £635,000!
Mr Sunak oversees the rules regarding Non-Dom status ... and the woman he's sleeping with benefits by over £20 million!
Mr Sunak is in charge of ensuring that the UK maximises its tax revenue... yet the woman he's sleeping with has been active in, or has owned, companies going bust owing a staggering £789,000 to HMRC!
Mr Sunak says his wife's tax affairs are none of OUR business... he can fuck RIGHT off!!
Arrogance in almost immeasurable amounts!
