The Prime Mendacitor has actually told the truth about himself believe it or not! And here’s the evidence quoted from the BBC – believe that or not! The times apparently are a changin’. So I’ll quote this straight from the BBC website
“Boris Johnson has told a private meeting of Tory MPs that the success of the UK’s Covid vaccine programme was because of “capitalism” and “greed”.“
And even more miraculously the BBC got their information from The Sun! Mr Murdoch will have something to say about that, especially as the quotation here was even more relevant and typical of the speaker than the quieter version of it on the BBC website. Try this for size:
“The prime minister’s full remarks, which first appeared in the Sun newspaper, were reported to be: “The reason we have the vaccine success is because of capitalism, because of greed, my friends.” ”
We’ve all known for a very long time that this man is driven by greed and is an admiring advocate of the capitalist system and now here it is in black and white and straight out of the Mendacitor’s mouth. Of course to put the matter straight as to borrow Owen Jones’ words from The Guardian this morning: “‘Greed’ has no role in the UK’s vaccine success... The vaccine programmes is being delivered via our state-run NHS, while the country’s test and trace system has made “no clear impact”, despite private consultants charging up to £6,250 per day and Serco’s profits surging thanks to the £37bn programme.“
That’s where the greed is MY FRIENDS and if that isn’t the ugliest thing you’ve seen and heard for a long while, I’d be very surprised.
I will say this again, even though I know I’ve said it here before. Boris Johnson is driven by excessive greed for money and power. And to satisfy that greed he has to pull a daily con-trick in the House and on TV which involves him in continuous and deliberate lies. One of the most odious of which is his projection of his personality as an amiable buffoon, HE IS NO SUCH THING! He is an ugly and dangerous man and sooner or later we will have to come together – not to join forces with his favourites and acolytes, but to demand his resignation. It will not be easy because he has courted and won the support of the multi-billionaires and press barons who currently control EVERYTHING about our society.
Maybe somebody should remind him of two things. 1. that there is such a thing as sin and that two of the four sins ‘crying to heaven for vengeance’ according to the Christian Catechism are ‘oppression of the poor’ and ‘defrauding labourers of their wages.’ 2. That there have been several national revolutions against the greed of leaders, one in 1765 in America and the other and even more bloody, in 1789 in France.
Entendez-vous dans nos campagnes
Mugir ces féroces soldats?
Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras.
Égorger vos fils, vos compagnes!
We managed to have a bloodless revolution in this country in 1945. I would dearly like to think that we could do it again now. But for that we would need some highly principled men and women. Like these.
