compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
to the point of extinction. During that TIME the House of Commons
has transmogrified from otherwise being manned by worldly
experienced members who had a real connection with the lives of
the people whom they represented, combined with an absolute
commitment to public service - in contrast to ex-foreign
political parties that regard parliament as a professional means
to an end of greedy, self-aggrandisement.
"I am a great believer in bringing the Empire
closer together. That's the only way we'll
have real understanding and prosperity."
Garfield Weston Canadian businessman and philanthropist
IT was Garfield Weston as MP for Macclesfield who donated £100,000 of his own money, as a gift to the Royal Airforce, to purchase 16 fighter aircraft, namely Spitfires and Winston Churchill, as Prime Minister, whose TOTAL connection with those that they represented, saw Britain comprised of its people and democracy as a political unit, representative of the power of the people.
Today the likes of Mr. Tony Blair who took this country to a war in Iraq, without one thread of an idea of the consequences of the differences between shiite and sunni muslims; Mr. Gordon Brown, ex-Prime Minister whose finger wagging conceit, revealed himself to be without a jot of an idea of what representation of the power of the people IS; and in the very latest incarnation of party politics today Sir Malcolm Rifkind and Jack Straw; have not a clue as to what needs to be done to revive the near to death, soon to be a corpse of The Curious Case of Being British.
Even though the countries which comprised the empire, are today independent nation states, they still commune as a modern Commonwealth of Nations despite the fact that our politicians have, seemingly, forgotten the lessons of history, in their greedy, self-interested, power-seeking, retirement-plan-driven obsession with all things Europe and the European Union ...
DOING the WRONG THINGS for the WRONG REASONS.
