Conquest by disorder

Sartre said that we are what others have made of us. As far as the British political and bureaucratic elites are concerned, the statement is true in a much more literal sense than originally intended. 
This is, in fact, the fate of any occupied country, where laws and official decisions are no longer sanctioned by the agreement between society and the state, but by the whims of external powers. This is not a fortunate state of affairs as our modern ideologists, in their immense foolishness or dishonesty, would rush to persuade you, peddling the fallacy that extreme departures from the requisites of national dignity, moral principles and the rule of law, together with the ensuing chaos, are acceptable to establish a new social order, in which, irony of ironies, even the smallest ideological departure would be repressed. 
And so, propped by a network of spies, treacherous political actors and pubic servants, and a lot of ordinary stupidity, the invisible occupation of Britain goes apace. 

Yet, in spite of what it looks like, the damage is not irreversible. Stupidity, for a start, when not caused by some permanent medical affliction, can be cured. Truth and transparency would open eyes and work miracles in this respect. Then, our politicians would be moved to recognize that pragmatic justifications for their lack of action have no credibility – when we can all see the self-interest and the cowardice behind them - and to recognize that the politics of intelligent diplomacy and compromise is one thing – beneficial to all - and collaborationism is another.

The spread of infamy

What is going on? Even from our remote vantage point we can clearly see a recrudescence of infamy. The left are going through another bout of rowdiness - they have these regularly, as we can all remember, since the time that the wretched Brown was in charge of the UK government.

But these days, just as we had all sighed with relief at finally finding ourselves under a government made of predominantly sane people, the fetid bolgias of the Labour party broke open again. Given succour from the East and the West (if not direct orders), the British left, hollowed out long time ago to make room for a motley assemblage of political pygmies and charlatans, are trying to brawl their way back into power. (Goodness, what a nightmarish thought! Yet, there are plenty of poor souls who still believe the Labour party is what it says on the tin and that it truly represents them.) 

Had the winds not been propitious to an international spread of ‘socialist’ infamy, British Labour would have never had the fervour for such orchestrated action, since what Labour are most famed for is the introduction of the concept of slime as acceptable conduct in public life. Slime, not honourable opposition… 

So we now have Mr Miliband spluttering with concern about the press, while failing to see the dereliction within his own ranks. As you know, we have asked him several times about the Gaul cover-up and the rest (chronicled on these pages), but Mr Miliband did not have the grace to give an answer. Neither scintillating, nor handsome, one wonders why he was chosen as the Opposition front-man. 

Besides, if we were to criticise the press, we reckon that the most important complaint and the biggest charge that could be levelled at them is not one of prying, but quite the opposite – that of selectively revealing the truth or not revealing it all.
