Boris Gate

My thought is there is something bigger going on.

Some greater power is pulling the strings to destroy our constitutional monarchy and break up the union. Boris is perhaps just the puppet.

With Trump destroying the US and us going down the pan and weakening the Euro group in the process, others appear to be strengthening just by comparison.

Dangerous times ahead.

We will be but a small fish in a large hungry sea.

Respectfully discuss.....

I'm talking about the international balance of power and subversive influence of states, not domestics per say....

Re: Boris Gate

There do appear to be forces at work trying to destroy Western democracy, yes. All the more reason to stick together, for divided we fall ....

Re: Boris Gate

I’m a bit disturbed by seeing him sat alongside Trump - I can imagine Trump telling him to lie and do whatever he wants as he will most likely get away with it. World politics are currently screwed up beyond belief.

Re: Boris Gate

In days of old the very first censors were set up to stop the playwrights such as Shakespeare, from “enlightening” the people to the shenanigans of the ruling class.

Many films have depicted the existence of the “cabals” as puppet masters that drive everything to gain money and power.

Interestingly most Disaster Movies start with the experts being ignored...

Funny, but not actually true.

No, that's just ordinary paranoia - everybody has that!

Re: Boris Gate

Is it not true that it was actually the Queen who prorogued Parliament, albeit on Johnson's advice - so she takes ultimate responsibility for the action, regardless of the constitutional arrangement between the Monarch and Parliament?

I guess that there would have been a constitutional 'difficulty' if she had refused his advice, but maybe no more then the one we're currently in!

I liked the comment by a broadcaster that Parliament would like to delay an election, so that they can "hold his feet to the fire"!
