Brass-Balls Boris Confounded by Parliament

Brass-Balls Boris Confounded by Parliament

In an extraordinary development in Britain today, the House of Commons voted down the Prime Minister’s call for immediate elections to resolve the escalating Brexit crisis.

It would appear that the ‘house of the people’ is too afraid of the people to face a direct and immediate election over the issue.

This pusillanimous decision by the so-called representatives of the people amply illustrates the disconnection between Britain’s political class and the aspirations and common sense of ordinary and decent people in that sad country.

Moreover, this decision and this disconnect amply highlights the poverty of today’s ‘liberal-democracy’.

The Australian community is in for a world of long overdue pain. It is wholly its own fault for which I have nil sympathy.

Thanks indeed for the comment. I do agree that we badly need to 'clean out the swamp'. Trump certainly stirred those fetid waters.

I agree with the general thrust of your comments but the Australian community believes the governments can deliver without pain and there will be a lot of pain up ahead.

Nice job on the essay John, but regardless of his positions, Dutton is too much a cretin of the past, he also looks like the walking dead. We don't need more career politicians, we need a Trump.
