June 8th General election

April 18, 2017 12 comments
This could be funny. As the election bill goes against the fixed parliamentary term bill, it will need a two thirds majority to pass through the house. As Labour, the Lib Dems and the Snp will all stand to lose out big time, we could see all the opposition parties voting to keep the Tories in power by voting not to have a general election. Shrewd move  Mrs M.

The US strike on a Syrian airfield with 59 cruise missiles is an act of unparalleled stupidity. The strike was in retaliation for a Sarin Gas  attack on Syrian civilians allegedly by Assad’s military. Naturally there is ‘incontrovertible’ proof  that the Syrian army is responsible.

Personally I doubt that either Assad or the Russians are stupid enough to use poison gas and as Sarin isn’t difficult to manufacture there is a better than even chance that a rebel  faction had something to do with it in order to elicit exactly this kind of response from the dumb Yanks.

Naturally the UK is tagging along behind the US wagging its tail  like some pathetic lap dog.

Germany and Europe

Metternich once quipped “Italy is a geographical expression”. Replace “Italy” with “Germany” and that quote would be equally applicable. Germany is a geographical expression. In 1805 there were over 300 political entities in German-speaking Europe. After Napoleon, these myriad polities were reorganised into 38 Germanic states in a loose, Austrian-led confederation. Eventually, Prussia grew increasingly powerful as Austria was forced to focus on the ever-growing number of problems in its formal empire. Bit-by-bit, Prussia expanded its territories. In 1871, a Prussian-led federal German empire was formed comprising 26 states. Read more…
