People in the United States are living in a parallel universe.
Half the population believes the last presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump through massive voter fraud organised by a Deep State cabal of Antifa (anti-fascists), BLM (Black Lives Matter), communists and extremist Democrats led by Hillary Clinton who runs a paedophile ring from the basement of a pizza restaurant in Washington in her spare time.
They tend to reject global warming, believe Covid vaccinations are dangerous (and possibly carry an invisible microchip Bill Gates uses to gather information); they are anti-abortion, pro-assault rifles and sympathetic to the conspiracy theories of QAnon.
Across the divide, people tend to care about green issues and are pro-choice, pro-vaccines and anti-gun. They, too, believe in their own variety of a Deep State as described by President Dwight D. Eisenhower as the military-industrial complex, a mafia of media moguls, corporation chiefs, the super-rich and war mongers in high places who killed Martin Luther King and the Kennedys to stem the flow of liberal thinking and ensure Americans remain afraid of Mexicans, Muslims, foreigners, reality and reds under the bed.
How will they ever build a bridge between these people living in a parallel universe?
Parallel Universe Brits
In the United Kingdom, Conservative Party loyalists live in a world of nostalgia, the Iron Lady, the Battle of Britain, the test match from Australia with tea and scones. The 1966 World Cup. The Sunday Service on Radio 4 with its soft and getting softer news. They loved the Queen and, with encouragement from the Daily Mail, are learning to love the new King. They hate Harry and despise his awful jumped-up American wife who made Kate cry and wants to ruin the country we all love.
Across the road living in a parallel universe are those who see the Conservative Party as a criminal cartel that has deliberately and for ideological reasons underfunded, over managed and sold off 40% of the NHS to private companies. They have allowed the 70% of foreign-owned railway franchises to run them less over the rails than into the ground. They have watched with noses clamped shut as the private water companies suck out sharer dividends as they pump out human waste into the rivers and sea.
Jeremy Hunt, a Remainer, a fantastic liar, the wing-commander of NHS destruction, now with his hands in the till as the Chancellor, promises to reap a Brexit premium making Britain a world leader in the manufacture of electric cars and AI (artificial intelligence). Another lie. A whopper this time.
Modern economies require unprecedented investments in the manufacture of microchips and semiconductors to compete with Taiwan and China. In the United States, the Biden Administration last year passed the CHIPS and Science Act into law and provided $52 billion to strengthen the sector. No individual country in the EU with its high energy bills, social care and education commitments can go it alone, but together the union is building new semiconductor factories across Europe.
If this were the age of sail dying with the coming of steam, we the rulers of the waves will continue to raise masts and sew canvas. ‘The UK is particularly exposed to future disruption in global supplies of semiconductors and is falling behind other governments in mitigating such risks.’ The admission comes from the Government’s own website.
To build a modern economy you need an educated population – one, preferably, where 20% of the people are not living in poverty. According to the Institute for Fiscal Studies, state schools in England have suffered their worst decline in funding since the 1980s, with secondary schools in the most deprived areas the worst affected. The root cause was the austerity programme inflicted on working people by David Cameron and George Osborne to provide billions in cash for failing banks. Since 2010, teacher salaries in real terms have not increased but declined by 15%.
Meanwhile, Conservative Party Chairman Nadhim Zahawi, with a net wealth ‘ranging from £30 million to up to £100 million’ paid a £1 million fine for tax irregularities. Gone now like Johnson, Truss…
Unelected Prime Minister Rishi Sunak got away with his fishy American Green Card dealings and ‘potentially avoided paying tens of millions of pounds in taxes through his wife’s non-dom status while the Chancellor,’ says the Guardian.
Present Chancellor Jeremy Hunt in 2005, co-authored a paper calling for the NHS to be dismantled and replaced by a personal health accounts system. That’s why they made him the Health Secretary. In 2009, he was forced to repay £9,500 for falsely charging taxpayers on his expenses to kit out his second home.
Ex-Prime Minister Boris Johnson received loan guarantees of up to £800,000 in a deal brokered by Richard Sharp before Johnson made him Chairman of the BBC. Sharp, a banker and one time adviser to Sunak, donated £400,000 to the Conservative Party.
Against the will and advice of MI6, Johnson wrapped his Russian friend Evgeny Lebedev in ermine and stuck this playboy son of an ex-KGB officer and intimate of Vladimir Putin in our House of Lords. If legislation banning strikes or human rights goes to the Upper House, Baron Lebedev of Richmond on Thames and Siberia can vote on the matter with the rest of the unelected peers.
These are dodgy, self-serving, often very rich and out of touch people living in a parallel universe to every decent, hard-working, tax-paying man and woman. To vote for them isn’t just madness, it is collusion with the most corrupt, dangerous, dishonest politicians that have every sat in Parliament.
