UK Political Elite Coup Bubbles along Niocely.

Those readers that might have wondered whether I'd been wearing a hat made of finest baking foil when I made my last post.

Bu I stand by my point that because of Brexit, the controlling Elite (those that pay the bills for the political parties) are trying to stitch up British politics so that Brexit doesn't happen, or it will be so watered down that it will be catastrophic for the UK and we'll end up crawling back to the EU chastened and cowed.

The swift resignation of David Cameron after letting his big finance buddies down, led to the coronation without contest of Theresa May (a Remainer). Not sure who nobbled Boris's aspirations, but he got put in the most embarrassing position for someone that has railed against foreigners: The Foreign Office.

Dismal David Davies has been put in charge of Brexit and not a Dicky Bird has been heard from either office since. I hope the lack of information is due to the time needed to get everything re-aligned between the Foreign, Trade and Brexit offices. But.....

Now to Labour. After Brexit, a coup was staged and those best budds of the monied elite tried to force Jeremy Corbyn out. Fair play, Corbyn utilised his most dangerous trait (as I've iterated before) and ignored everyone, stuck to his principles and stayed put. Handy in the context of resisting the elite, not such a good trait if he resists deploying the nuclear option if Russia had a pop at us.

Owen Smith is the declared opponent to Corbyn, but Labour as a party are resisting the Putsch, recently adding another hard-line lefty to the Labour NEC. I don't really know where the Labour story will end, but I just wonder if the money men will view the new radical Labour with the same sympathy as a rabid dog and put it down. I really foresee the split of the moderate and maniacal wings of Labour with the moderates walking away to form a new Democratic Socialist Party (no relation to any similar monikered political parties that have existed previously). I assume this moderate socialist group won't ally with the Liberals, but will stand apart. Well if it has any sense it will.

Now to UKIP, the true 3rd party in the eyes of the public. (No-one mentions the Liberals these days even if they have more MPs in Parliament).

What the hell is happening in there? Farage's favourite candidate gets booted out of the leadership contests by slight of hand and some people preferred by candidates from previous parties are put forward. None of whom we've ever heard of. Mainly down to the cult of Farage, but really UKIP could do so much better. Hopefully the UKIP rank and file will elect someone with a decent profile and who will hold the government to account over Brexit. Because someone needs to while Labour implodes.

But it's unprecedented in politics that so many leaders resign and so many problems arise in so many parties.

Which is why we have to be wary against the stitch-up. If the political parties are aligning (or being aligned against their will) to weaken or even reverse Brexit, us, the public need to be on point, on guard and watching what happens over the next few months.

Sadly it seems that the way things are aligning, the Tories will deliberately botch things, UKIP will be weakened and unable to mount a controlling influence and the only true opposition will be a bunch of rabid socialists that no-one will ever consider voting for, thereby eliminating that threat to the destruction of the Brexit ideal.

Because our only voice is the ballot box and that's effectively silenced if the only true opposition is unelectable.
