Another day, another ill-judged intervention from some remoaner has-been…
Now it is Sir John Sawers (who the fuck ?? no me neither) lamenting the passing of Blarite interventionism in which no doubt he was such a star.
I have news for Sir John – Britain did an alright job as global policeman up until 1914 and people like you believed in individual liberty, rule of law and equality before the law.
Since 1945 the currency of his type of geopolitical yobbishness has become somewhat debased now that it is run by globalist neocons with only a shadowy attachment to the core Protestant values which informed British style liberalism.
I am no practising christian, but I do know better than to underestimate these values in shaping what is good and worthwhile in our history.
Back to now – we have far better and more productive security links with the USA, Australia, NZ and Canada than with prìerfidious France or hopeless Germany, and without surrendering our sovereignty to some third party that they control (although it is undeniable that the UN has far more influence than the moral probity of its operations could possibly justify).
My recommendation to Sir John? Fuck off back to your tax payer funded manor house and play with your dogs before we come and get your over-generous pension.
And mind the door doesn’t hit your arse on the way out.
