I haven’t blogged much lately; it is a busy period for the flag industry, which deprives me of time, but fills the coffers for a few months. Business is considerably quieter later in the year.
In case you missed it, the Love Police interrupted a photo op and press conference for George Osborne, the new Chancellor of the Exchequer, and William Hague, the new Foreign Secretary.
Notice how one of the fawning crowd thinks that Charlie is American, when he is clearly Scottish. Perhaps we are far too reserved in this country and so anyone doing such a thing is automatically assumed to be a Yank. We, the people, have the power, if only we realised it. This is why “democracy” is always venerated by those in authority. It gives people the belief that they have influence and control and if they don’t like something, encourages them to sit back and wait until the next election to vote for ‘the other side’ who are just as bad. For the ‘Liberals’ and ‘Conservatives’ to get together when they are supposed to be ideological opposites shows what a farce our politics has become.
I saw this Love Police video on Infowars, where someone left a comment explaining the difference between conservatives and liberals (Republicans and Democrats in the USA).
