So allegedly Theresa May is looking to cut the defence budget again to pay for all the things she has been promising recently, but the simple fact is that Britain is in decline.
Tory right wingers,and Ruth Davidson, might think that the Great is still in Britain but even before Brexit this country was on a slippery slope to insignificant glory.
Oh I know there are people like Robert Tomes in the Spectator who don’t agree with my sentiment because Britain is wealthy but it’s not really. There are wealthy people who live here but most folk are pretty skint. We don’t make much of anything that anyone wants and while we need to spend on public services it won’t be the wealthy who pay for them it will be the poorest.
As Will Hutton wrote in the Guardian last year
It’s the same story of underinvestment; a woeful track record on R&D; overemphasis on high, short-term profits; an incredibly poor record on productivity and stagnating real wages. On almost every international comparison, Britain fares badly, with a desperately weak export sector overfocused on financial services and a few manufacturing industries.
Scotland could prosper as we have a lot to build on but as long as we are chained to the U.K. governed by right wing sycophants and Scottish yoons determined to go down with the sinking ship it doesn’t look good.
I can’t understand why anyone would want to be a part of the U.K. This state is a disgusting class ridden midden, but those with the power never see the midden, they don’t feel the hunger, don’t experience the health and well-being inequality. They live in a bubble protected by their media friends and served by their sycophantic hanger ons.
The more I learn and the more I try to understand the more I am convinced that the U.K. is over now and it’s just a matter of time. I just can’t see how the U.K. doesn’t end badly I really can’t. This country is devoid of vision and run by idiots in Westminster. Decline isn’t even the start.
