And not just the US, mite. The American disease is spreading, all over, the world.Cretins breed like rabbits, lice, vermin, philosophers not at all, and cretins breed cretins.
I think Brits to this day still see Americans the same way they did in colonial times, and that that we are the "herd" and should be insulted at any opportunity.
Britain elected an American as Prime minister
When did we ever get to elect a prime minister? I don't recall his name being on my ballot paper.
2019; and it didn't need to be.That's the way our system for choosing a PM works.
You know that is incorrect,
I couldn't vote Labour because some antisemitic...
Result: I wouldn't vote Conservative because Rory Stewart (the only hint of competence on the front bench) was not elected leader, I couldn't vote Labour because some antisemitic prevaricator had been elected leader, and there was no point in voting for any other candidate in this sharply polarised constituency.
On the Speaker's right we had a bunch of eurosceptic MPs led by an ardent europhile, and on the left, a bunch of europhile MPs led by a lifelong eurosceptic.
The anti semitic thing was because of brexit,
The left is anti Jewish culture,
the right anti Muslim
So the obvious thing to do - since this is meant to be a democracy- is to ask the people (again).
The conservatives have trouble swallowing Islam , Labour Judaism.
Quote from: Petrochemicals on 04/10/2021 23:26:05The conservatives have trouble swallowing Islam , Labour Judaism.Too simplistic. All politicians want is votes. Time was (1930 - 1970) when the Left opposed fascism, the Right supported it, and the Muslim vote was too small to matter, so Labour was distinctly pro-Jewish and the feeling was mutual. Now there are ten times more Muslims than Jews in the UK, and some (say 10%) are distinctly anti-Jewish, so it behoves one party to secure that vote, and the other party to secure the equal number of Jewish votes by appearing anti-Muslim. Since most British Muslims have brown skin, it is logical for the party with a pro-fascist history to take the anti-Muslim line.
The problem was not a lack of mandate,
until they come up with the right answer. That is indeed the European way.
what policy to present to the electorate other than "you choose"
Not helped by its leader, who, as PM, would have his finger on the nuclear button but in response to a straight question would not commit either to pressing it or to scrapping it.
Two big questions, no answer, electoral suicide.
the people were known to have changed their minds.
Most military commanders will not reveal tactics in advance.
