Carthage

The scorched earth policy being put into effect by New Labour and their glorious New Leader was recognised from the moment of the defenestration of Blair. It had been going on for years previously with Brown installed permanently at the Treasury, but was masked by Blair's electoral appeal as 'a pretty straight kind of guy' - so very different from the kind of guy next door.

Now Brown has ploughed over the ruins of the City and is sowing the fields with salt.

Carthago delenda est!

Cartago delenda est - said Cato the elder - and so it was, but by the Romans, who did the sowing with salt, not by its own citizen and leaders. Cui prodest?

Carthago Delenda Est


I bet you were waiting for someone to post that

Well, not any more, Henry.

And Angels are not setting the word verifications, honest.

Unelected except by Scottish voters who have their own parliament, Brown is not our leader, C, but some kind of one-eyed Scottish idiot. Or some kind of Honecker.

Seems everyone has said it

Brown is a puppet Our real masters are waiting in the wings

Caronte said...

Are you saying that Brown is the salt of the earth then?

Take hart from history. Its unlikely that Carthage was ploughed over and the earth salted.
Even if it was,it sprang back within 30 years as a thriving Roman city. Its still there now.

So, even with the scorched earth policies we may well survive.

It is, of course, you lot, CityU., ND, and Quango, MP who have explained and convinced so succinctly, the scorched earth thesis. Now I am to believe that all will be well in 30 years. 30 years! We've put up with this corrupt, self-satisfied, do-gooding, korrekty fabianismo for 12 years already. That makes 42 years! How old are you Mr Q, that you can concede 42 years of your life to these incompetent, ugly, fat, stupid, delusional, vicious, sub-human, New Labour freak shows?

And Henry notes these are just the puppets of the real evil. Henry, you need to expand your remarks. Who are the masters now?

Who, indeed, are the masters now? Ask Atlas Shrugged.

Come back Harry "If I ruled the world" Seccombe; all is forgiven.

Stolen from the inimitable 'Bearwatch' blog, this may answer your "who are our masters" question.

Satire
A very clever essay from the rec.gambling.poker newsgroup:

The Amazing Stimulus Package.

Join us for an enjoyable night of illusion brought to you by Uncle Sam the Magnificent and Fed the Enabler. Sit back, relax while this magical duo performs feats of magic so astounding that they will have you reaching for your wallet, even while knowing neither of them ever left the stage.

Their world famous "Creating Money Out of Thin Air" will have you rubbing your eyes with amazement. Watch closely as they transfer that "Created Money" to the Wall Street elite, third world dictators, and ultimately out of the pockets of the audience. Try not to be caught as they captivate the audience with the hypnotizing phrase "Too large to fail". Try to follow their logic as they magically convince you and most of the rest of the audience that spending your future earnings today will turn their bumbled (or was it intentioned?) handling of the economy from crisis to stability.

Marvel as they nightly obfuscate their positions and purposes while they plunge the world economy into recession, and then depression.

You'll be astonished when they reward each and every member of the audience Gift cards, checks, or direct deposits worth many times their ticket price. You'll leave the auditorium scratching your head wondering how they can continually perform these feats of magic and financially return to continue the show night after night.

But most important be sure to buy tickets for their closing night. You won't want to miss their amazing final show as they make your money shrink and disappear right before your eyes, making even most wealthy people poor as they create a two class economic structure composed of the super rich and the poor. Watch as they finally render the U.S. Constitution a worthless piece of paper while magically converting hundreds of millions of American citizens to citizens of the WORLD with little resistance from a weakened, powerless middle class.

Yes Henry, Brown is indeed a puppet.

But our real masters are not waiting in the wings, they are sitting quite openly in Brussels.
