“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
There is no doubt who this government looks to when it seeks to distort the agenda. From the 2017 General Election and the phrase from Mein Kampf ‘Strong and Stable’ to their traditional approach of repeating the same lie over and over it can no longer be a coincidence.The latest isn’t a relatively small one like ‘they care’. No, this is about taking the country, if not the world, in to an opportunity to boost the economics of the international community by engaging in some form of armed conflict. Goodness knows what these psycho clowns have in mind but we can be assured it is us who will pay in more ways than one.
Serious newspapers have been debating the probability of war with a superpower on the premise that the use of a nerve agent in Salisbury ‘definitely came from Russia’. No evidence made available. Conflicting narrative and now the Foreign Office deleting tweets that formed part of its propaganda against it’s own population. Even the tendency to compare the UK with Russia, in relation to the control of information, will have to be re visited as many of us no longer fall for it.
Over two weeks ago an ex diplomat told us that the government were lying and he reminded us of this only yesterday:
Even a far right spiv nails it:
Since that time the Conservatives; right wing Labour politicians and millions of gullible people have queued up to look like idiots. The Leader of the Opposition warned Parliament and the country to wait and he was ridiculed. He was right and they were wrong.
Perhaps if they had read some Alexander Pope instead of snooting (if that isn’t a word it should be) down their nose at us all they may have maintained some of the little dignity they might still have.
“Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.”
Friedrich Nietzsche guided us in the late 19th century about the likes of Boris Johnson and his type when he said:
“I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.”
And finally the brilliant Ray Bradbury in the equally wonderful Fahrenheit 451 warned us that:
“…you can’t make people listen. They have to come round in their own time, wondering what happened and why the world blew up around them. It can’t last.”
Let’s hope we don’t have to repeat more of Boris’ and other Tory lies before the rest awake.
