Slowly, then all at once.
Yeah, to quote Hemingway, though his circumstances were Bankruptcy.
Maybe that is what we are experiancing as well. A moral bankruptcy, especially in the elected and ‘chosen ones’.
We are still at the Civil Stage of things and sternly worded letters MAY do the job.
I wouldn’t hold my breath over it. Boris doing the right thing and reversing course were not actions of a moral person: they were the actions of ‘the guy that got caught’. Harsh legislation in a socialist regime (yes, Britain is very much a socialist country) and the “big guy” was caught red handed playing the “do as I say, not as I do” and He is now making an effort to save his sorry ass from the fires of public perception and retaliation.
Good for those that are getting out from under that thumb of tyranny, but they need to watch out still. After all, they elected a Muslim Mayor for London and all of the fun and games that came from that. I wouldn’t at all be surprised if we suddenly see a seat change from Boris to some Imam as a PM. Don’t know how the Queen would react to that, nor if she could do anything anyways, since the Royalty is kept on more out of respect for history.
No. Sternly worded letters are good for getting people to open their eyes and minds to the fact that someone(s) have been pulling the crime of the millennium on the world. But they don’t really get the job done: just another tool of the nicer aspects of a war between the people and those that wish to rule. And when the Pen no longer does the job, or the Pen of the People is no longer paid any attention to by those that wish to rule, then the swords start rattling in the scabbards, the bullet boxes get dusted off, and things start to take on a more violent timbre. Personally, I think we are the scabbards rattling stage and the kick off of things not so pleasant as sternly worded letters is about to get hot. Power will never be relinquished without a fight. That Boris is doing the things he is,,, It’s political movement to hold his power, nothing more. Maybe he will step down quietly when things don’t go his way, but the real power centers aren’t just going to go away.
Closer to home. The word is getting out. Was just told by my Da, who doesn’t follow the news, about the event listed above. SO, maybe the Ene-media isn’t broadcasting this, but it IS getting around. The ‘Networks’ of old are fractured and there are new lines of communication opening up to fill the old roles.
Over under between or through,,,, Can’t Stop the Signal.
The truth always comes out eventually. Let the dominoes fall where they may, just try to keep your self out of the fallout zone.
On other pages of my life, cold; BITTER cold here. Bossman walked out today and decided, right there and then, we were NOT going to fart around with the weather or getting people hurt sick or injured in this crap. Fine by me even though it digs into my issue of lowered income. Not in dire straights YET, but a few more weeks of this and I will be forced to move along. I am trying to work on other means, and of course, those take time, and my clock is ticking. In the mean time, I stay close to home and keep the expense to bare minimum while I do what I must.
