    Should be about doing the right thing for your country, not about elections…

    And the corollary is:

    “We all know what we shouldn’t do, but we know how to get re-elected, so we do it.”

    Doesn’t always work e.g. G Brown.

    If they want to get re-elected they must be seen to be fair. Wielding the axe amongst the poor while turning a blind eye to wealthy tax dodgers will be seen for what it is, corrupt.

    True in Belgium, where they still have a caretaker Government, they can’t even elect themselves.

    Bollocks. They don’t have the first idea what to do. If they did they’d pick up the 250k of free next clothing on offer. Although to be fair if I knew the answer I’d keep quiet lest I was given the horrendous dross they sell.

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
