As I keep saying, you don't understand how the EU works, because it's
never happened in the UK either - when was the last time an unanimous
vote was held to dismiss all the senior civil servants, who are the
nearest UK equivalent of the Commission?

You can't vote to remove a senior civil servant, who is the nearest UK
equivalent of Van Leyden, so why should it be an issue that you can't
vote to remove her?

Don't talk cock. Civil servants don't initiate legislation, unlike the
Commission, which does.

No it drafts it, like civil servants do, political direction comes from

I'm not talking about non-violent protests. I'm talking about those such as
gilets-jaunes, where there have been some deaths. That they might or might not
have been reported in the USA is neither here nor there.

One may note that protests in the US are often violent, too, and for the same
fundamental reason: lack of any meaningful political change possible at the
ballot box.

And there are lethal riots in the UK too, so I repeat where is your

Ah well, you need to hit an alt-right site like Breitbart to get any
news at all that isn't 'onLiberalMessage' and then you have to apply the
inverseRedneck™ filter to remove the bias *there*..

In short, we are lied to all the time on any media there is. Everyone
has an agenda, everyone needs to get paid, everyone wants to to
synchronise with their world view, and see the world through their eyes,
and as an amateur philosopher, I understand the Problem Of Induction
means, in this context, that no conspiracy theory can be proved to be
false. Perhaps the Queen really is a lizard from another planet. Perhaps
the Russians really did do it. Perhaps the vaccine actually makes us
believe government bullshit. Perhaps we are all living in a VR
simulation created by pan dimensional white mice, perhaps God is real
and in his place.

The Left runs on all this bullshit, trying to modify the way we see the
world from plain common sense to moralising puritans. What is racism?
calling a spade a spade? How dare you call me 'white' ? Had a DNA
analysis? Its BLM who make distinctions between 'races', not me.

Faugh! a plague on all your houses. Thank Clapton I am an engineer, you
cant bullshit machinery. It doesn't matter how much a male plug
'identifies' as female, it still wont plug in another male plug and do
anything useful.
Which reminds me, the bloody range burner has stopped burning and I need
it to cook on.

I'd challenge that. Trump for sure made meaningful changes after being
balloted in.

And in fact the policies that he presided over were pretty popular. Its
just that he wasn't, and the antics of the Liberal media in essentially
cancelling him were very ugly indeed.

(Someone remarked that the Republicans need trump policies without the
Donald. I can relate to that).

I think the real issue is that everyone has forgotten what the point of
democracy really is, and the Left have deliberately misrepresented it in
order to use the ridiculous concept of 'fairness' as a weapon against
democracy.
Democracy was developed in Britain in its modern form because things got
to a head, we killed a profligate king, and then had a moralising god
bothering communist style dictator implement what amounted to martial
law, that any Liberal would be proud of, banning music. laugher, and
anything ungodly for a decade or more. Then he died, thankfully.
Ryaltyhad been entirely cancelled, and so had laughter.
Well the people in general thought he was worse than a king. so they
invited the king back. But they said he was there on sufferance and
couldn't do everything he wanted, but had to coexist with parliament.
Which was composed of rich people. Who liked a bit of fun, and didn't
like being moralised at.
Noe there were other rich people who said that this was all very well,
they didnt have time to attend parliament, but dammit, they weren't to
be ignored either, so they started appoint chums who were of the 'right
stuff;' top represent their point of view. And so it carried on until
the modern system of votes for all - probably a mistake - was
implemented, not to have their views represented, but simply as a brake
on totalitarianism.

After the civil war, the consensus was that anything was better than
bloody war and terror, and so a gentleman's agreement to abide by
majority votes was accepted as civilised and sensible.

All democracy,. British style is, is a way to get rid of the king,
without bloodshed. OK hes not a king these days, we allowed the king to
stay and not be topped, at the expense of having hos executive power
stripped. at lies with the government and the Prime Minster (to the king)

And if he is making a huge mess of things, he can be sacked, by means of
various votes within his party, and if the whole party fails to come up
with a competent CEO, the whole party gets sacked at the next general
election. Britain is a nation of shopkeepers and traders and the way the
country is run is the way a public company is run, with votes and
shareholders.

The point is democracy is not to 'fairly represent the will of the
people' In reality it is a process of sacking and reappointing the
executive board of Britain Ltd., It sacrifices 'fairness' for
'effectiveness' The government can do mostly what it likes, up to the
point at which it needs to be totally removed.

Governments are necessary, to a point, but they have to be kept in
check. Governments are mostly incompetent bumbling fools masquerading as
Glorious Leaders. Mostly that's a lot safer than them actually meddling
with stuff they don't understand.

Unfortunately they have gotten out of hand worldwide. Its time to kick
them in the nuts. By any means possible.

British democracy is a fairly good implement for this. Once enough brits
decide that's what they need.

Carefully hidden, I mean are you naive or *WHAT*.

You actually seem to believe stuff in the media, believe politicians and
bureaucrats,

Bless!

Ask yourself, who in journalism, in media, in the annals of
governments, in the authorship of wikipedia, in *anything* has any
interest whatsoever in letting an innocent pleb like you have access to
the truth?

Firstly you wouldn't believe it, and secondly if you did, with your
moralising stance you might try and go out and do something about it

Cant have that.

You might to a Great Thunderbox and yell 'why aren't you DOING anything
about it?'

SSSH Greta. We are, we are making a fucking fortune out of electric
cars, windmills , grid scale batteries, solar panels, heat pumps,
insulation. None of it is actually making the slightest difference to
carbon emissions, but that doesn't matter.

It's all about excuses to sell more crap to plebs, to transfer their
wealth to our pockets, to make them more dependent on us to crystallize
us as the elite who will deliver them from the imaginary problems we
have created..and that's why we buy off the academics with grants and
cancel the honest ones who show doubt and pay our media chaps to call
them 'climate deniers'.

We own the media. We own the politicians, We own the EU. We own the
Democrats. We don't own Brexit and we didn't own Trump, but we soon put
paid to one and will smash Britain next.

We own the world. And the last thing we want is well informed people in
possession of the truth.

If we say it didn't happen, it didn't happen. Records can be altered.
Entire events airbrushed out of wikipedias and history itself.

So you just settle down with a nice cup of warm milky Ovaltine and a
couple of aspirin and read the Guardian and put on the BBC and settle
back into the carefully constructed narrative we have prepared for you,
and you will feel much better in the morning.

Of course there are no riots in the EU.

It wouldn't be good for business now, would it?

All political movements of all stripes run on "all this bullshit"
the only difference is the flavour of bullshit they run on - this is the
fundamental difference between politics and engineering, politics is about
people (irrational, fearful, self-interested, dishonest ...Wink while
engineering is about things (they just are). No matter how much we may wish
otherwise the world of people is run by politics not engineering - the
tricky part is to avoid being led over the edge of the cliff by the

It usen't to be the case. We had idealists- the labour party,. telling
people how the world ought to be, and we had conservatives - sober men
of business, anxious to make a decent pile yes, but anxious also to keep
a country that they largely owned, clear of civil disorder, crime and
able to plan and manage competently.

The modern crop of Oxford PPES are bloody hopeless. They are not
conservatives.

And as for the narratives of te left, well its either violent cultural
revolution and communism, or repressive political correctness and
thought crime in a puritanical police state.

Cromwell called his unelected rule 'the commonwealth'
It is pretty much the same now.

No one has a coherent vision for a post modern post industrial post
Covid world

They are simply working towards unassailable positions of power, in the
hope that even if the plebs die in droves, they wont

... and the conspiracy theorists.

The latter have caused the deaths of countless people by spreading
ant-vax lies. The anti-renewable-energy lot (it's difficult to
accept that people really can be so stupid as to claim that renewable
energy doesn't/can't work, given the huge numbers of examples of it
working, now, in the real world) will continue to cause countless
deaths from pollution. So their victims have, in effect, been led
over the edge of the cliff.

It works to make money.It doesn't work to generate reliable electricity
and it doesnt work to reduce carbon emissions

But you need to understand engineering to see that.

Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the
gospel of envy.

Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

I now see that you are nothing but a troll, and without the understanding
of engineering that you claim.
