President Putin this week pointed out that the United Kingdom has zero influence now and cancelled a proposed meeting with Boris Johnson.
I have always heard the phrase punching above our weight. The powers that be and the sycophants in Westminster hark back to empire more and more every day, role out the Queen and the Union flag at every opportunity, kiss any presidents ass who happens to lead America and excuse anything countries like Saudi Arabia do in order to be seen with their Royal Family.
It’s all bullshit of course, as our economy, built on the misguided fascination with the banking sector, continues to falter we use our so called military might to try and stay at the top table, we spend billions on nuclear weapons so we don’t lose our seat on the security council.
It’s always been an illusion built on a history that is no longer relevant. Too many politicians swan around believing their own shit with an arrogance that is both funny and disgusting at the same time, willing to suck up to anyone who might make them look important while in reality the UK has only been tolerated due to its membership of the European Union.
Russia might have just done us all a favour this week, I have never agreed with or aspired to the crap that Westminster feeds, a wake up call has been coming a long time. The United Kingdom is on a slippery slope of insignificance as far as certainly Russia feel and maybe that will wake up the pompous and the elitists in this country as to what is actually the important things.
