Once more our country is ungovernable
Here is David Cameron making it clear that the June referendum result will be unalterable by Lords, MPs or any one else except it now appears its not. It seems some people have no respect for democracy and for their arrogance have been put into the best and cheapest geriatric day care centre in the country called the House of Lords Its even better than Monopoly, you get £300 just for finding the place.
Over recent years many have asked what is the point of the HoL? Now we know. Its there to thwart the will of the ordinary people when they have the temerity to vote down their betters. Teaching the plebs their place is another way of putting it. Its the way the EU does things. Dirigiste is what the mandarins like oily Olly call it. Wikipedia defines it thus:
"Dirigisme or dirigism (from French diriger, meaning 'to direct') is an economic system where the state exerts a strong directive influence over investment. It designates a capitalist economy in which the state plays a strong directive role, as opposed to a merely regulatory one."
It is thus a Napoleonic phrase and this is beloved of the EU
Like in the J B Priestly play of the 1930s, I have been here before. Heath another weak Tory PM had won a close election in 1970 and very soon found he was not up ruling the UK.He simply could not handle the workers. Who can forget the 3 day week and the power blackouts in central London. All precipitated by another Tory PM who like T May was simply not up to the job.
Heath's solution was to opt out of even trying to run the country and simply handed us over to EEC Napoleonic rule. The EEC gratefully accepted and with the help of our craven MPs eventually subjugated us to their rule. There were a few hiccups on the way mainly caused Margaret Thatcher but the Tory establishment eventually assassinated her and installed EU Puppet John Major to be followed by even better Socialist puppets Blair & Brown a bit like Pinky and Perky but better at starting wars.
And what of Cameron who started it all off? No sooner was the referendum result announced than in the true tradition of old Etonians he scarpered leaving our country to the weak and wobbly Mrs May who like Heath is trying to hand us back to the EU and for the same reason, she is not up to the job of running the UK.
O tempora, O mores
