Dumber and dumber

The deliberate and misguided manner in which politics, education and the media are being dumbed down by the numbskulls that control these institutions, is creating a society of dimwits who know who David Beckham is but have not got a clue who Admiral Nelson was. They know the names of the "Big Brother" contestants on television but have barely heard of Winston Churchill!

A dumb nation is doomed to rot at the bottom of the pile. A nation without mathmeticians, scientists, engineers, poets and painters is nation on the road to oblivion. A nation without morals and a sense of respect for its fellow beings or its heritage is like a storm tossed ship that has no idea where it is headed or indeed what fate awaits it.

It's time to sound the alarm and come to our senses or sink into the abyss of chaos that is slowly but surely enveloping us. Where has all the common sense gone?


Nefarious consequences of spin

If politicians are serious about wanting to tackle voter empathy, they must first come to terms with the nefarious consequences of the spin merchants. Nobody knows who is or is not telling the truth anymore or what to believe. We therefore trust no one and have no confidence in anything we hear or read. Consequently the public reaction to politicians and much of the media is one of a plague on all their houses.

This is the abysmal state to which politicians and the media have reduced our faith in our elected representatives and the political system in general and it brings them nothing but shame and condemnation. A harsh truth is better by far than a deceptive half truth. When will they learn?

Let us hope they do so before it is too late to undue the web of deceit they have spun or everything will come tumbling down like a pack of cards around our ears with dreadful consequences.

Blair calls for EU Reform

Mr. Blair today reiterated his call for EU reform when addressing the EU Parliament. His speech appears to have fallen on fertile ground amongst many Europeans. However, it is amazing to me that nobody has pointed out the fact that for years now, Mr. Blair has been telling us all how good Europe is for Britain and our economy.

Now he is telling us that Europe is in a mess and urgently needs reforming! Come on Mr. Blair, who are you kidding? You cannot have it both ways. The French, Dutch and others are seiously dissillusioned by the so called "European project" as underlined in their referenda on the proposed EU Constitution. Mr Blair, it seems has only just found out how deep the "merde" really is! How can anyone take anything he says seriously?

Backed into a corner by Mr Chiraq on the matter of Britain's rebate, Mr. Blair has seen an opportunity to embarrass his French tormentor, hoping that no one will pick up the contradiction in his former stance on Europe. Well, I have a message for him. We've rumbled you Mr. Blair and some of us have seen through you for years. Your elbow is attached to your arm by the way.
