Thankyou Giovanna. I havent lived on that little island for 37 years. I got out while the going was good!! It’s been a struggle but i believe i am a more informed human being as a result of visiting other (some diverse) countries and learning different cultures. The only one i have difficulty in comprehending is…(you guessed it.)

Not surprising, as England has been heading down this road for some time now. Instead of following the example of the socialized democracies of mainland Europe, the British predictably followed the American neo liberal model. Maintain your aristocracy, eliminate taxes and thus public services, ship jobs overseas, and disempower the people so that they will never rise up against the land owning class.
Britain is now a reflection of its master here in the USA. A wounded and tired old boxer, trying to go just one more round, hoping and praying that his opponent just drops dead so that he can raise his arms in triumph that one last time.
Scary isn’t it? That the only hope the last two great empires in world history have for extending their hegemony is for the world economy and ecology to collapse.
Imagine one of the final scenes in “Dr Strangelove”, only imagine that instead of Slim Pickens riding the hydrogen bomb down to ground zero, whooping it up as he hurtles towards the ground, that it’s Boris and his Buddy The Donald arguing over who gets to sit up front.

Keep pushing for a national election, which the right is terribly afraid that Corbyn and Labor would win.

Agree – US has been Britain’s “Master” since end of WWII –
By 1943 Operation Gladio was in play to ensure that only right wing governments
would rise in the nations over which the US had influence and control at that time …
Italy, France, Germany, Japan – and I’d suggest UK and Greece, as well.

Many dirty/violent deeds have been done around the world by the US/CIA corruption
to ensure the rise of the Fourth Reich throughout the world.

Another sad day for the UK(been sad days here in USA since “election(appointed)day 2016”. Just have to wonder, what would the world be like if the colonists had not won the Revolutionary war?

Absolutely and not surprised. I had the good fortune of spending my childhood in southern Italy where the communist party was very strong-almost did go communist but for US America’s interference.

Poodle and the ducker quacking up -…

Poodles will repeat the activity of playing catch until their body demands sleep. Their brains get loopy in the interim. A ducker (in all senses) like the donald, on the other hand, needs a gang of over dressed junkyard dogs, stunning amounts of money to launder and con[way]s with barred teeth threatening those engaged in civic activity.
Fight the good fight; play to learn the Constitution and teach your children well.

That should speed up the crumble.

Not just the right is afraid. This situation is partly a result of the “centrist” Establishment, which hates Jeremy Corbyn even more than the Tories and which has been smearing him and lying about him for years now. We can thank them (including Red Tories like Tom Watson and so-called liberal - really neoliberal - publications like the Guardian - of the status quo) for this disaster. Shame on them. And is Carolyn Lucas and the Lib Dems helping - no, they are playing politics instead. They should be uniting behind Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour to speak up for the decent side of this country.

Looks like 75 yrs after WWII the fascists are winning the world. Poland, Hungary, Russia (which made a 180 going from Communist to Fascist), the US and now the Brits. The Greeks just elected a “conservative” after getting fucked by the left then the Socialists and it looks like Italy may soon again elect another “Mussolini”. I’m 72 and won’t live to see how this works out one way or the other, but it don’t look good.

If you look at Trump and Mussolini side by side, you tell me the difference. I’m waiting for “one of them” to grow the Hitler/Charlie Chaplin mustache. I think together the hair and added mustache would look dictatoresque cool and chic.

Edit to add: He’s still got some work to do on the hair, but the facial similarities are to creepy to ignore,

Around 100,000 Tory Party members have inflicted on us a prime minister with a record of bigotry, racism, lying, and incompetence, Boris Johnson," declared Green Party MP Caroline Lucas. “This is not democracy.”

Once again, the many ruled by the few – fascism.

My opinion on European Union was that it sounded good –
then the Exit also sounded good –
Obviously intended to be confusing –
But my opinion is whichever way it goes – stay or go – it will be a win for Elites.

This monster makes Theresa May look good.
Imagine what he and Trump can do working together.

will Boris exit the EU with a hard landing?
will EU and NATO even exist for much longer?
will The Brit empire finally leave North America - their colonies of Canada and USA?
will London financials lose their tentacles of world power and domination?
