Truth will out - eventually: But when it comes to governmental 'truths' it is advisable not to hold your breath waiting! Also, and this is another "Government Health Warning", don't assume that when various top-level enquiry reports are published they will contain "the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth". So, it is with less than bated breath that I await the Chilcot enquiry report into exactly how many lies were perpetrated by HMG in order to gain public support for our disastrous foray into Iraq. Similarly, I would urge my American friends not to become too excited at the possibility - I put it no higher - that the full report into the 9/11 attack detailing official Saudi aid and assistance to the attackers will be published any time soon. After all, it's now 55 years since the Bay of Pigs fiasco and still the CIA refuses to publish its mea culpa - well, if it's not a mea culpa it bloody well should be! George Will has an excellent article on the American non-reports over at The National Review.
Do the EU a favour and VOTE LEAVE: Roger Bootle in The Telegraph today has an interesting take on the IN/OUT referendum. He points out the truth that the EU, irrespective of whether we Brits are in or out, is heading for disaster because of the sclerotic but fanatical grip of the EU maniacs in Brussels. The shock waves from a Brexit would simply provoke what is already looming. The Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and the Netherlands are already edging towards the exit and the French nationalists are just waiting to boot Hollande in the derrière at next year's Presidential election. So come on, people, we've saved Europe before, let's do it again!
Three cheers for The Mail: At last, and entirely due to the good efforts of the readers of The Mail on Sunday, 'Dim Dave' and the patronising prats who support him will be forced in June to come to parliament and explain why, amongst other things, we continue to provide 'aid' to the likes of China and India, both nuclear powers, plus sundry thieves and killers who ravage their own countries in Africa. If ever Dave deserved the soubriquet 'Dim' then his insistence that 0.7% of our budget, or £12 billion, is spent keeping dictators in place confirms it.
I lunched not wisely but too well: Again! Sorry about that but we had friends round for a late lunch and the wine flowed and time passed and afterwards I snoozed I had to try to work out the meaning of life and somehow I arose to seventh level of inner awareness. Ah well, see you all tomorrow . . .
No more rumbles today
