The British Government?

Iain Davis

Well, here in the UK we have a new Trilaterist….er, sorry, I meant Labour government, led by the charismatic Keir Starmer.

Likened to a dish rag, and not without good reason, Keir Starmer now commands the government with a whopping 170+ seat majority after nearly 80% of the British electorate didn’t vote for either him or the Labour party.

This all makes sense because people imagine that representative democracy has something to do with democracy, which it doesn’t. Still, who cares!

Government is a shit idea anyway so if we are going to be ruled by anyone, why not the man who went out of his way not to prosecute Britain’s worst ever paedophile, necrophiliac pimp and was still listed as a “former” member of the Trilateral Commission in 2022 with their little explanatory note: “former members in public service.”

He’s not an active member of the Trilateral Commission. Honest, he’s not!

Why should we care you may ask? Well, the Trilateral Commission that Keir serves…sorry, there I go again, “served,” is just a Rockefeller owned—my mistake—aligned globalist think tank that promotes ideas like the “pursuit of the European unification” and brings together a global public-private partnership of policymakers, business leaders, media moguls and selected academics who have taken it upon themselves to decide what the “solutions to some of the world’s toughest problems” are.

Sure, you voted to leave the EU but now you’ve elected to rejoin it. OK, so you didn’t vote to have policy decisions forced upon you by some remote oligarch think tank either, but that’s just too bad. If you voted in the UK general election, this is what you voted for so you don’t have any right to complain.

Of course, the largest single group of voters didn’t elect any government at all. With 60% general election turnout—with a turnout below 50% in 59 constituencies—Labour’s paltry 34% of the vote was resoundingly trounced by the 40% of the UK electorate who couldn’t be arsed to vote for anyone. The most popular choice in the UK is no government.

Whether it was apathy, the wet and absolutely bloody freezing July weather—global warming eh?—or just the terminally depressing prospect of having to partake in the state’s quinquennial anointment ceremony, who knows? And frankly, who gives a damn?

The government was threatening us with violence if we didn’t do as we were told yesterday—a threat it can certainly back up by the way—and the government is still threatening us with the same today. Yesterday the government was blue, today it is red, what’s the difference apart from a wallpaper change? It’s still the same government.

Globalist thinks tanks like the Trilateral Commission were controlling government policy yesterday and they still are today. Your “vote” meant absolutely jack-shit.

Still, It’s nice to imagine you have some sort of democratic oversight, I guess. That is, of course, if controlling other people matters to you.

So what have we got at the end of the day?

About 20.4% percent of the electorate voted for their favourite gang to be the ones who will enforce whatever policies the oligarchs want to foist on everyone. The remaining 79.6% of voters either wanted a different gang to wave flags for or no gang at all.

A tiny minority, who certainly didn’t vote, think the idea of forcing someone else to do what you want by sticking a cross in a box once every five years is not only—literally—a box-ticking exercise, but also an absolutely appalling and morally bankrupt thing to do.

With 34% of the vote Labour gets 64% of parliamentary seats because reasons. This means it doesn’t have to listen to anybody at all for the next five years. Although it will certainly be listening to a bunch of parasitic oligarchs because that is who governments actually serve and always listen to.

The so-called UK government, which is really just a relatively minor “enabling” partner in the global public-private partnership, has absolutely no legitimate democratic mandate at all.

Which is yet another reason, in a very long list of excellent reasons, to ignore it completely.

People think government is only for them. They always forget the 1/3 on the society’s bottom.
People like me who are homeless, drinking 10 Elephant beers a day, sniffing cocaine, living off grid, or sleep in the nearby parque in a paper bag.

WE vote on Tony Blair, Starmer, WE sing “Save the Queen” when we are many at the football station, and WE the real voters want Gordon Lightfoot as PM.
Whatever nasty things Starmer will do to you upper class intellectuals, we will still receive our soup, food stamps and our due social care whether you like it or not. Thats why!

A few questions Keir Starmer should be asked under oath, or at the very least upon pain of being called ‘Dishonroable’ during PMQs: Jewish Venture Capitalists, who are so rabid in their support for the Israeli genocide in Gaza that it’s not possible to call them anything but racists, paid £1.5m into Labour Party funds for the 2024 election. What policies did you sell them for that cash, Starmer and did it include brainwashing the population of British schoolchildren that Israel’s actions in Gaza were ‘proportionate and acts of self-defence’? Why do you sell Labour Party policies for a price less than one thousandth of that demanded of UK taxpayers each and every year from HMRC? Do you seriously think that you work for unaccountable and unelected businessfolks? Do you agree that by accepting donations of > £100k from those not registered to vote in the UK that you are… Read more »

The foreigners in London are mostly abominably thirsty for money and seem like the worse of their countries. Eastern european or middle eastern landlords in London and Brighton (as well as some locals) are the lowest of the low.

I now have a greater understanding of how it all works. The managerial class, transcending all political parties, “get on with the job” but grit their teeth whenever election time draws near i.e .the only time when that despised UK public have minimal input into their country’s economic procedures.  The political theatre is fundamentally down to two main parties who in truth only ever serve the dictates of that managerial class. But these two parties have different “images” to uphold and therefore each has a limited set of roles they can play, these two sets of roles mutually excluding each other. It therefore DOES matter which party gets in.  The managerial class has already decided which set of roles they are going to require. The next winner is therefore already decided. The big question is how to manipulate that desired winner into place.  The answer is that the leaders of… Read more »

You’re missing the psychological effect, upon the civilian, of having someone in parliament who is voicing their concerns, publicising immigration corruption etc. If you wanted to start to rebuild an England within England now is the time.

Agree with your sentiment and most of your reasoning, except for the part about ignoring the beast. The concept of representative democracy is absolutely a sham–and a shame. What individual, in his/her right mind needs a representative to decide on the few issues of vital importance in one’s life?
More taxes for foreign wars for profit and genociding ancient semites in Palestine? Hell no! More hand-outs for economic migrants around the world? Absolutely not! Suspension of human rights for non-existent diseases and forced medication, or else? On my dead body!
Seriously, what does this class of elitist morons know that I don’t, that qualifies them to make decisions on my behalf?

Light on any Wiki entry for any “major” celebrity, and note that there is a section on “philanthropy”. The bigger the celeb, the bigger the contribution to philanthropy (just take the scare quotes for granted from now on). It seems that the richer a celeb is, the more generous! Miss Swift being the prime example.  So philanthropy is the new “secularised” faith of our sorry materialist world.

The Catholic Church has always been a corporation – hell, it gave the Rotschilds and Rockefellers’ the template to create unimaginable wealth for themselves.

The whole aim of the Catholic Church was to encourage ‘sinners’ to ‘confess their sins’, which meant that they could be blackmailed for life. 10% tithes a week for 40 years time a few hundred million generates an awful lot of wealth you know.

And as for those who saw through the nonsense? Well, then you need the bullying gauleiters outside the church buildings making them persnoae non grata in villages, towns, even cities. Can’t have ‘the threat of a promising example’, after all.

I’m sure that the Mossad and Jeffrey Epstein studied the blackmailing techniques of the church during its heyday, in order that they might control western politics through sex-related blackmail.

There was a lot more. Borrowers paid usury to Jew lenders, but Christian lenders could not commit that sin – until much later. Religious posts were sold, even to conversos. The intelligence from confessions that bishops sent out covered commercial, political and military opportunities. For a major sin, a big donation to the construction of a cathedral got you a “letter of indulgence”. The Crusades provided the permanent pattern for international cooperation in plunder and mass murder.

“ The whole aim of the Catholic Church ..”

No, the guiding principle, which has been attacked by external and internal enemies of the Church since the guiding force of those attacks is the enemy of God, is saving souls!

Jesus asked. “Who do you say I am?”

16Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

17Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah!b For this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by My Father in heaven. 18And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it. 19I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

2) So much for Labour “change” – it’s the same old boot-licking that goes back to Philip Snowden and Jimmy Thomas.
3) It gives them a nice chance to explain away that notorious portrait – it was socialist red, not blood… honestly…
4) Neutrality is replaced by “centralism” which is really what it’s always meant. There’s nothing centrist nor neutral about technocracy/transhumanism/neo-feudalism – it’s the most extreme concoction imaginable.
5) The two men’s greatest shared feature is simply ignored – their mutual fondness for two men with surnames beginning with ‘S’.

MI6 engages in global coups d’etat with our American masters and Israeli blackmailers and it has never been, is not currently, nor is it ever likely to be an organisation promoting anything but blackmail, sexual perversions for foreign policy deals, murdering to order, support for genocidal dictators and an absolute love of money above all things.

How is the UK a democracy with the House of Lords still in place? It is a faux democracy controlled by an aristocracy. The likes of David Rockefeller are the aristocracy, buying up politicians like Starmer and promising them top jobs, like leader of the Labour Party. The whole thing stinks and has done for a very long time.

Now they claim to be fighting for democracy in Ukraine, the country that has outlawed all opposition parties and suspended the election of a leader indefinitely; basically a dictatorship. There is not a lot of difference between the Ukraine government and that in London.

Britain has never been a democracy, it has been a pioneer in ‘limited hang-out democratic facades’ since Magna Carta. It still had rotten boroughs for sale well into the 19th century, it took a world war with millions of young men dead to allow women to vote. Because it’s institutions were created earlier than in other countries, they are more antediluvian, more archaic and more unfit for modern purpose. Before worrying about the House of Peers, you should ask why the oaths that MPs have to swear upon joining HOC are not to defend the interests of their constituents, rather to defend the Monarch. Why on earth should 60 million people vote on who should defend the Monarch, FFS?

Not always. I voted reform and lowered a tory win in my region. Other choices were ‘mumsnet greens’ fruity liberals, or labour. Maybe there was more, I didn’t read it much. There is a science of electoral systems which is always ignored in favour of biggest vote vs PR. Idealy the system would be altered according to the mix of parties.

Starmer learned during his law career that he could get paid $20,000 an hour for doing what he was told.

He’s going to rack up lots and lots of brownie points so he can earn $100k+ for an after dinner speech when he ‘retires’ from ‘politics’.

The first rule of being Prime Minister is that you can never put what’s best for your country above what’s best for your rich paymasters.

Kier Starmer can thank Farage, trumps best friend, for his victory in the UK elections.

Farage split the right wing vote & put Labour in power.

So the question is, why did the US (trump) want Labour in power?

The answer is that Labour will finally discredit the left with ‘woke’ BS, & they will wreck the British economy ready for US asset stripping and will transfer wealth to Kier’s blackmailers in the US. Europe is being looted by a dying empire, the UK is the first.

Farage isn’t Don’s best friend. It wouldn’t matter even if he were. In 2016 Farage happened to be invited to speak to a group in Alabama–having nothing to do with Trump. Farage had struck up a friendship with some people from Alabama delegation at 2016 GOP convention. When I heard Farage was going to be nearby where Don was holding a rally pre-Nov. 2016, I was desperately hoping that Farage could be persuaded to speak for Don, which eventually he did. Farage is a great speaker. At the time I read that Farage said he’d never met Don before until he was backstage at that event and about to speak. Farage had not been a Don fan-boy, viewed Don more as a business man. Which Farage defined as someone who’d write down what you said, then throw the paper in the trash after you were gone. Since then, for different… Read more »

Trump is in constant contact with Farage including discussions of his role as UK ambassador to the US after his election. Trump is part of the whole far right movement in the US and Europe. Where Steve Bannon funds ‘the Movement’ to back fascist parties in Europe like Reform. Your attempt to turn real political conspiracies into a melodrama is disingenuous. ‘’Farage was the first British politician to speak to Trump after his election, meeting with Trump in his eponymous Manhattan tower’’ ‘’In 2015, Farage was reported to have had close links with Trump’s then chief strategist, Steve Bannon, when Bannon scheduled meetings for Farage with right-wing figures in Washington. In his book, The Purple Revolution: The Year That Changed Everything, Farage described Bannon as “my sort of chap’’ ‘’In August 2016 Farage and fellow Brexiteers Andy Wigmore and Arron Banks met Trump for the first time at a campaign… Read more »

Now that the “Left” brand has been ratified via the “Starmer triumph”, the Guardian announces:   “Resist ‘idiotic’ move to the right in leadership race, top Tories urge”   “Senior Tories are pleading with the party to avoid the “weapons-grade idiocy” of a further drift to the right, …”   Which is why, “Kemi Badenoch ….is currently seen as having the broadest appeal. Her rejection of the possibility of Nigel Farage ever joining the Tories has endeared her to the party’s liberal wing, and she already has some support on the right.”   But let’s hope not too much, eh?   “In the meantime, there is an immediate drive to stop any drift to the right after Reform UK took votes from Conservative candidates across the country. Some on the right have already advocated a deal with Farage and his party.”   Presumably a deal to halt this “Rightward” drift.… Read more »

Where dealing with foreign leaders is concerned, they need to ensure that their Foreign Secretary and their diplomatic corps are not obsequious spineless little order takers, since they aren’t the ones who will ultimately take the heat if a prize c**k up occurs.

The point of replacing Jewish Zionist puppets with new Zionist puppets was simply the deceptive tactic of double bait and switch. The old stalwarts had been outed as destroying Europe, while the new stalwarts will submit to the propagandizing of a new face in politics – to bridge the hatred of the old stalwarts by the people. Another illusion.

Marine le Pen is also a Jewish, Israeli proponent who just won the election displacing Macron – a Jewish, Zionist proponent.  Jewish sympathizer and secular, Olaf Scholz, a socialist Marxist, remains at the helm of Germany while Italy’s Meloni who pledged conservative values as a candidate immediately swung hard to port once in office – pro-Zionism.  Thus Europe’s elections have secured the EU as fully colonized under the Israeli flag.

Possibly the most accurate indication of the future is that the first policy pronouncement I heard from the new government here in the US is that they “stand 100% behind Ukraine” (or words to that effect). Just think — every time a SeaShadow missile is launched there its one and a half million pounds less for schools, libraries, even food for poor people (there seems to be a lot of them about these days). Actually, its to be expected. The history of the UK government has always been one of professed strict economy except when it comes to things like Empire. Whether its relief for the Irish famine, WW1 vets, relief from the Depression, post-WW2 reconstruction etc. its always been the same song. The trouble with this mindset is that in the absence of an Empire to loot it leads to a gradual impoverishment of the entire society — circling… Read more »

These manager should be paid a reasonable market rate of remuneration as befits the managerial tasks expected of them, with bonus payments each year for proven efficiency and beneficial outcomes for the local community. It would be much easier to check progress/achievement at the local level, than it is at the national level. Also, the army’s mandate would be restricted to protecting national borders and to assist in the event of natural disasters (bush fires, floods, earthquakes). No more meddling in international affairs; no more invasion and murdering people in other countries.

The brute fact that economy is always the necessary first priority, both at a political and a personal level, means that every institution of society will invariably be subject to a logic dictated by economic imperatives, be it politics, education ‘The News’, science, etc. When those economic imperatives are, as I mentioned, competitive and self-maximizing in nature, these are the values which will impose themselves on all aspects of society, including politics.

The only 2 results I bothered check were J Corbyn & A Bridgen s
1 out 2 not bad I suppose
. Incidentally is anybody else going miss the crazy campaigning of Sir Leotard Davey ,his oh so bad it was good dance &keep fit routines ! were something else
Sure he got into full on intensive care Karaoke mode to celebrate results ,but he still never shook his Liberal groove thang , as in days leading up to 4th -what a shame

It behooves me to question your sanity by linking to, quite possibly, the worst version of this song in the known universe and whatever lies beyond.
I beseech you to delete this foul, nauseating, “Mars Bar” imposture, and provide us with a link to Bob Dylan’s original masterpiece. It may be your last chance to redeem your immortal soul.
Joking aside, I have yet to hear a decent cover of this song. Some things just cannot be done.

I like Link, but don’t like that version.

Funny. I was going to link the Them version (largely due to Van Morrison’s Convid heroism), but upon listening to this one, I feel that next to the Dylan original, it’s the best version I’ve ever heard. Her voice is deeply expressive, full of melancholy, regret, and near despair. It’s an emotional piece, and if the guitar is a little lacking, it’s still stark, and ultimately, it’s all about her voice. But…as per your request, the original masterpiece.

Certain songs, you actually have to absolutely believe in the lyrics, or they fall flat. Sometimes only the writer knows what the song is about.

“…you actually have to absolutely believe in the lyrics, or they fall flat.”

That’s why I like the Marianne Faithful version; she’s one of the few other than Dylan that actually feels the song rather than just sings it. Most of the covers of this song feel like paint by numbers versions in comparison.

Sensational performance by Dylan. Great singing and guitar.

And again and again I have confirmation of the archaic view of Labour as the party for proles. So what is it? Is it the red? Does a colour bypass all conscious thought? Have all those decades of media hammering about “trouble at mill” generated an indissoluble layer of cloth cap sediment nestling in the minds of these glassy eyed pub crawling son-of-the sod diehards that blinds them to the reality of the Labour Party first as Tory 2 and now as the Trojan Horse for the most brutal expropriation since the theft of the commons?

In the new post-covid world, it is “The Left” who have been chosen as the figureheads to direct the latest mutation of parasitism. The former “neoliberal” model of competing businesses is no longer “sustainable” i.e. can no longer produce the requisite profits to maintain the wealth acceleratingly centralised under the biggest corporations. Thus the Thatcherite model of the self-made small entrepreneur is to be ditched to make way for the vastly reduced hive population.   This accounts for the peculiar topsy turvy world in which the weary old banner waving proles are now the dupes for the coming biosecurity state whilst the formerly despised small businesses, e.g. farmers, are amongst the few to have stood up to protest against the encroaching fascism whilst of course being denounced as fascists.   It’s a sobering, even terrifying thought, but up till now we’ve had pandemic/climate fearmongering and transgender mutilation “lite”. Under Starmer, we can… Read more »

Putting it in another way George, which probably amounts to the same thing.

Starmer is a homonym for Karma, and Starmer will sow the very seeds of it, that we will all unfortunately reap – some for the asinine stupidity of voting for him in the first place, and others because they know not what they have done.

Doesn’t matter which actor (or Temple Crown lawyer-agent) heads up the privately owned corporations masquerading as governments. They’re picked for their pedigree, their ability to memorize scripts and other PR training. They’re effigies, nothing more.

The agendas are global and decided decades in advance by think tanks and Supra-national orgs. National politics and geopolitics serve as fronts for para-politics.
