There's one glaring all-important difference between Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson as the election

campaign gets under way..

The former is using his Party to protect and preserve Brexit whereas the latter is using Brexit to protect

and preserve his Party.

Those familair with the actions of a previous Tory prime minister who is often to be heard spouting pro-EU

stuff might call it a Major difference...know what I mean John?!

Po - know where you're coming from. But I was throwing out some
magazines after posting this - some dating back to the early 1990s
(hoarder - moi?!) - and a number contained items that remind us how
the Tories became so disdainful of the electorate's misgivings over
the EU (I do NOT consider the EU to be "Europe"), with reminders
that John Major was vilified for betraying the electorate by signing
the Maastricht Treaty without a proper mandate, whilst a certain
"Father of the House" - Ken Clarke - was telling students in Cambridge of his ambition to see us signed up to the Euro.
Years ago, I wrote to the latter expressing my own misgivings about what was being done, quoting lines from G.K. Chesterson's poem "The Secret People". The response was a card merely acknowledging my letter. Now, the poet's words are taking form. His
"Unhappy Lords" see their power wane
now that the people understand what has
been done in their name and reject it..
Here's an amusing but rather alarming example of what we were facing:.
The Lord's Prayer has 58 words
The Ten Commandments have 297 words.
The US Declaration of Independence has 310 words.
But the EC directive on the exporting of duck eggs has 28,911 words!

You know me Mark, I never talk about politics

However I have to give to you, the gift of a little flower...

I wish I had an inkling about what is really going on...
Nope! Not an F'n clue.

Maybe someone can spell it out for me, in words of one Syllabub
to sip upon.

WTF is going on with these half-wits.

I fail to understand or comprehend the complexity of where we are as a nation, politically speaking, on the world's stage.

It seems to me like a comedy of errors.

Is this what we fought two world wars for?
(This is a serious question, not rhetorical)

Interesting take on the on-going situation that has most of us switched off with the outrageousness of it all. But yes, I would agree with what you say - well put. P. 👍
