Its the Economy I don't trust them with!!!

Telegraph: Britain slips to new low in ranking of most corrupt countries

The UK should be aspiring to a CPI score which puts it in the top ten – not struggling to make the top 20. It should demonstrate that its own house is in order before exhorting developing countries to improve their governance.

It starts at the top. Former Prime Ministers should not be able to take paid banking positions after they leave office - Tony.

Doesn't match up with my experience. I've seen many countries first hand, from places like India where it is impossible to get anything done without giving a bribe, to the likes of eastern european countries where you can grease the wheels of bureaucracy and get that government permit a little faster if you hand over a little cash. I've never seen or experienced any public sector worker in this country asking for or expecting a bribe.

The article says Britain slipped down *one* place to 17th out of 180. How corrupt do you have to be to move down two or three places?

In a time of universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
A few quotations to reflect on.
George Orwell:

“You want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping n a human face – forever.”
“All political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome.”
“In our age there is no such thing as ‘keeping out of politics.’ All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.”
“Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.”
“The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one’s real and one’s declared aims, one turns, as it were, instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish squirting out ink.”
“War against a foreign country only happens when the moneyed classes think they are going to profit from it.”
And from Henry A. Wallace:
“Their final objective toward which all their deceit is directed is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection.”

Totally agree for a change.

Tony (Bilderberg Group) Blair smells of roses after leaving office and post banking collapse.

However, the blood on his hands is not so easy to whitewash.

Shoulder to shoulder.

Hearts and minds.

Backhanders and backstabbings, just another well meaning globalist.

Here is one of many soldiers that have finally realised what being a true patriot is.

Branded a terrorist now.

It does not strike me as being odd at this juncture of time that we have two Anglo-American leaders of dubious credentials, which to me

does not bode well for our next election choice. If indeed we have a choice.
