        Well opinion is divided as to whether the great Socialist Experiment of the Soviet Union was a success or not. If you were expecting it the usher in an age of peace, mutual accord, material wellbeing and open democracy for all then you might be disappointed. If on the other hand you saw it as the opportunity to create a rapacious criminal elite that then disregards all law, common decency and democratic practice whilst fastening on to the wealth of the nation whilst pissing on the great unwashed in process then it was a winning move. I’m sure our elite would do the same given the chance.

          As all our finest Armchair Generals are out and about this day may I raise a glass ( and perhaps strike many medals ) in honour of the people who will do no fighting, never did no fighting and have no intention of fighting in the future?

          The First World War ( lest we forget?) was the unleashing and playing out of a declining world power – Britain and the two upstart challenging nations the US and Germany – for the re-distribution of Economic power that once was the sole province of Queen Victoria.

          The poor sods who fought it out on all sides had no idea what they were fighting for at the time but found out in the re-match (WW2) exactly what was at stake. Ironically the present is a a result of the past two wars and post Communist Russia is as much a part of those resulting outcomes as is Israel.

          So here we are again only this time the real victors of both wars are refereeing the new set of fixtures.

          That is the US ( otherwise known as NATO). The UN is powerless and the paralells are striking. The US is now under threat from the emerging powerhouse known as China and the the BRICS are forming economic alliances as we type.

          As in the past Economic wars can rapidly turn into actual real wars.

          The same trends are being played out before our very eyes.

          Lest we forget indeed.

        Not quite the same at all.

        Both being NATO members in a common defence agreement that is fine.

        With R’ussian aggression being felt in the B’altics now this is significant.

        If this was routine would not be reported.

        This is much more like a R’ussian warship being spotted unauthorized off the coast of S’cotland as happened earlier this year. R’ussia would have been testing L’atvia and NATO’s defences here.

      Here we go again, same old Tory dis-information.

      For the truth is that, when “he was Labour leader, Foot attended the annual Remembrance Day service at the Cenotaph in 1981. A Labour MP who didn’t like him much happened to be watching on TV, and said: “Look, he’s wearing a donkey jacket!” As it happened, it was not a donkey jacket at all, but a very expensive short overcoat that his wife, Jill, had chosen for him because she thought it made him look elegant. Even the late Queen Mother, at the post-ceremony reception, commented on what a splendid garment it was.

      But “donkey jacket” fitted the image of Michael Foot as a thoughtless scruff – someone who, when about to attend the most solemn event of the year, grabbed the first coat he could see, and came in something that might have been suitable for a long walk through bracken.” SIMON HOGGART, MailOnline, 23:19 01 July 2007

        Greater tax avoidance

        Greater ‘autonomy’ for schools

        ‘Reforming’ the NHS (‘200 pound to see your doctor’?)

        And in other news, Lib-Dem Danny Alexander has said that: “Any Conservative plan to have a flat rate of income tax in which cleaners would pay the same rate of income tax as bankers would be unspeakably unfair.”
