Another quick post.
What is/are the arguments for or against the EU? As a matter of fact, as a voter, I have no idea. I think that I am reasonably intelligent, but I must admit that I have no idea what is the best thing.
I use the word ‘thing’ advisedly, because, when it comes down to it, the EU is no more than a ‘thing’. It is not like an octopus, because an octopus is a living entity. The EU is a ‘thing’ with no morality or empathy. The latest ‘tobacco products directive’ shows that clearly. MEPs voted to deny choice.
Cutting to the quick, what MEPs did was go crackers. Absolutely mad. They allowed the Elite to circumvent proper procedure. Further, in a few days time, Cameron et al will pass the TPD into law in the UK, despite the fraudulent processes in the EU. Let us be clear. When the Elite ignore proper procedures, they commit fraud. They are no different to the Mafia. The Elite is Mafia.
Cameron et al support Mafia.
Our politics must change from the bottom upwards. That is very hard to do. The odd thing is that we need a Trump-like person to break the mould. But how can such a person ’emerge’ in UK power politics? It is all very depressing. There are simple examples of institutional assertiveness, which were manifestations of political laziness, such as tobacco product displays. And now, we will have exacerbated protocols which cover cig packets with medical porn.
Do we smokers care? Not one iota! Nor do ‘the youth’. The reality is that people like Cameron et al are mentally ill. They cannot function without the equivalent of a cattle prod.
I detest them.
