Cameron’s defenders would argue that, when people call him lucky, what they actually mean is that he seizes his opportunities. But so far he has shown a marked reluctance to take advantage of Europe’s troubles to secure a better deal for Britain.
Politicians are fond of quoting the words of Barack Obama’s former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel: ‘You never let a serious crisis go to waste.’ Emanuel’s next line, however, is even more apposite: ‘And what I mean by that, it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.’
I should have written “more than 25% say”.
No point talking to died-in-the-wool Tory EU enablers, any more than talking to Labour, as Osborne recently discovered with Harman.
What we have here is people, not only with no understanding of history but they are only motivated in a Jim Hacker way if a policy can be sold to ensure votes. If EU Out would ensure Cameron’s longevity as leader, he’d follow it for sure as a policy, either aware or unaware he can change nothing without Merkel’s approval.
An East German communist.
That is not a statement made in ignorance, it is an argument, in response to the Werner Schultz contention:
Even so, not all party members were Communist believers.
… and he means Merkel. There is the contradictory evidence:
Merkel has said in the past that her FDJ role at the academy was more that of a cultural secretary and that her duties included buying theater tickets and organizing book readings.
But former German Transport Minister Günther Krause — an eastern German politician who worked with her in the final months of the GDR and as a fellow minister in the government ex-chancellor Helmut Kohl in the early 1990s — contradicts her in the book and says she propagated Marxism-Leninism.
She was quite close to the system. However, that is to read German politics without one factor – Bertelsmann. These are her true masters, the Bruderheist who keep her in power. And they hold onto the old Teutonic dream of annexing Britain, as did another product from the stable – Hitler.
The bald Wiki statement that:
The Bertelsmann Foundation (German: Bertelsmann Stiftung) is the largest private operating non-profit foundation in Germany, created in 1977 by Reinhard Mohn. As of 2013, the Bertelsmann Foundation holds 77.4 percent of Bertelsmann, the German multinational mass media corporation. The Foundation support neoliberal ideas.
… says only part of it. Non-profit foundation. Think about it, how that could be and why that would be. Whence its funding? And these are the people who printed the booklet for the German Health Department which recommended paedophilia with one’s toddler.
Wiki says it’s a new thing, from 1977. Technically correct in terms of the current name and it would mislead any student of Bertelsmann who accepts things at face value. Delve deeper and you get:
Delve deeper and you get links to the major German movers and shakers over time, back to the Weishaupt days. Thus Merkel might well defend herself against allegations of communism, on the grounds that she is in thrall to a much older, more arcane and more powerful group – the old money of the HRE, in other words Them, the ones funding Hitler.
And getting their hands on the Crown’s money is only one small part of it. They have more than enough of their own, it’s control of the City which is wanted, as the City is far more than just a London financial district. Ask Peabody/JPM in NY.
Is Forsyth aware of any of this and he is a shill? Or is he just unaware in his EU-enabling Tory way? You could point anything out to him:
Trotsky in his biography refers to some of the loans from these British financiers going back as far as 1907. By 1917 the major subsidies and funding for the Bolshevik Revolution were co-ordinated and arranged by Sir George Buchanan and Lord Alfred Milner.
Milner brings in Rhodes and round tables. Round tables bring in Tavistock, which brings in Demos, which brings in Total Information Awareness and Common Purpose … and so on. Forsyth only need read this to know … if he wished to. No wild fantasy – history.
Where’s Cameron in all this, gallivanting around Europe, pretending to “renegotiate terms”? And the elephant in the European room? Rothschild.
The German connection has its tentacles everywhere:
The original Stockholders of the Federal Reserve Banks in 1913 were the Rockefeller’ s, JP Morgan, Rothschild’s, Lazard Freres, Schoellkopf, Kuhn-Loeb, Warburgs, Lehman Brothers and Goldman Sachs.
Explore the Warburgs. Some will want to bring in the word Zionist here and that takes us even further down the rabbit hole.
The bottom line, for the purpose of this post, is that a pundit like Forsyth is either a shill or an ignoramus.
