Sir John Major – Breathtaking Hypocrisy of The Grey Man..............Dan T

In the dim and distant past the words honesty and integrity meant something and they were essential requirements for anyone serving the public. Doctors, solicitors, the clergy and even postmen were considered people of unimpeachable integrity.

Most politicians used to be part of this august group of individuals but sadly, no longer.  How they went from highly regarded to the lowest form of life is open for debate; their reputation is in the gutter and they don’t give a damn.

The ability to lie with a straight face and not to give an honest answer to the simplest of questions have replaced honesty and integrity as essential requirements for the job. It is, however, hypocrisy and their contempt for the people that is the most damning.

One off the worst cases of hypocrisy and contempt of the people was the recent announcement by former Prime Minister and hallowed Knight Of The Realm, Sir John Major, that he will challenge the proroguing of Parliament in the law courts.

The current plan by the Her Majesty the Queen to prorogue Parliament at the request of her Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, is not a constitutional outrage or the coup d’état by fascist tyrants it is being portrayed as, but the normal device that is used to end an old Parliamentary session in order for a new one to begin.

Apparently there is an "establishment" in British conservative circles just as there is in the GOP, that actively fights the will of the people they are supposed to be serving.

There is indeed. Its politicians v the people and at this point the politicians are winning.
