"In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible...Thus, political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging and sheer bloody vagueness...Political language [is] designed to make lies sound truthful..."
George Orwell, "Politics and the English language" 1945
First consider Greenland, who realising that their greatest asset was being completely ruined by being a member of the EU, decided to quit. Alex Singleton, Telegraph, writes:
"By rights its people ought to be poor. Their island is isolated, suffers from freezing weather, has a workforce of only 28,000 and relies on fish for 82 per cent of its exports. But it turns out that since leaving the EU, Greenland has been so freed of EU red tape and of the destruction of the Common Fisheries Policy, that the average income of the islanders today is higher than those living in Britain, Germany and France."
Second, consider Iceland who took the decision, in the words of their President, to:
"........allow the banks to fail two years ago and because the krona could be devalued."
Even though Iceland is relying on a $4.6 billion IMF-led loan to rebuild its economy. Grimsson said today the government may not need the entire amount. Hmmm......
As I posted yesterday, the cumulative deficit twixt the EU and the UK for the years 2000/2009 is £260.2billion - and still those with a total lack in the brain cell department maintain that we must retain our membership of the EU. Hmmm.....
Now, if the electorate can begin to see the light, whilst our political elite continue to keep their heads where the sun don't shine, tell me: which one of the two are the f'ing idiots?
Just asking - and answers on the back of a fag packet, please.
