Quote Of The Day

Jim White, writing a satirical piece in the Telegraph, says:

"No society can begin to tackle its problems unless it is in control of the means to solve them."

Think about that folks, just for a minute.

No society can begin to tackle its problems when those 'representatives' that society elects continue to behave in a dictatorial manner, putting party before country. No society can begin to tackle its problems when central government controls the 'purse strings'. No society can begin to tackle its problems when the laws by which it lives are dictated by 'others' in another country.

Likewise no country can begin to tackle its problems unless it is in full control of the means to solve them - and not beholden to rule from an unelected, unaccountable cabal in another country.

It is also regrettable that no country can begin to tackle its problems whilst beholden to rule from an 'elected' and supposedly 'accountable' cabal in its own country!

Very profound - and true.
