    Heseltine Lurches From His Westminster Crypt 



    B



    Like one of those zombies in The Walking Dead that lurches on well past their expiry date…

    .

    …Michael Heseltine, once widely known as ‘Tarzan,’ whom Brits of a certain vintage remember, none too fondly, for prevailing on Maggie to reward the 1980s  riotous rabble with millions…

    .

    …government ‘investment’ in the areas they dwelt ( for which precious little thanks were ever heard) instead of sending in battalions of security personnel to pacify them…

    ..

    ..

    …has emerged from the crypt ( aka the House of Lords) to redefine ‘democracy’ as a system of government in which the clear wishes of the electorate In no way bind legislators to enact what the electorate decided.

    Far from it!

    .

    ….

    Tis the role of the ruling class who know what’s best, to unmake the electorate’s decision for them…

    .

    .

    …and impose THEIR will on mere recalcitrant voters.

    But it’s good to read that he’s been sharply slapped down.

    “In the end even people like Lord Heseltine, great figures from the past, who have never quite reconciled themselves to the idea that we’re going to leave the European Union, are going to have to focus on the fact that that’s what the British people commanded us to do….

      Would it be regarded as a threat if I make a joke about driving a stake through a zombie’s heart, or does that only work for vampires?
      As it happens, I see Heseltine as more of a dinosaur than anything else.

      Him and that old fool Clarke, two of a kind.
      They hate the idea that the people know what’s what, they always think the nobs know best and look where that’s got us.

    The Duke of Wellington, educated at Eton and Oxford, is believed to have received over £80,000 in EU subsidies….

    REVEALED: Brexit wrecker’s EU handouts – Duke of Wellington …

    AND

    ////

     

    Brexit blocker Lord Heseltine pocketing £90000 a year in EU land …

    ———–
    Of course we expected Heseltine to do all in his power to subvert the British people’s democratic decision.
    “We must not give in to mob rule”.
    Michael Heseltine, aka ‘Tarzan’, charismatic europhile darling of the Conservative left, and matricidal mace-wielder. One-time Minister of Defence and Deputy Prime Minister. Explaining his opposition to holding a referendum on Euro entry in a BBC television documentary.

    EUSSR…Participatory Democracy? – A Travesty…Common Identity? – A Joke! 

    Heseltine may consider voting for Jeremy Corbyn in the next General Election to stop Brexit from happening –

    King Rat! 

    He has always been an arrogant elitist, contemptuous of commoners who defy the self-styled ‘great and good’ – a class that is good for nothing, but great at betrayal.
    —-
    But surely we were entitled to expect more from the current holder of the title conferred on the Iron Duke?
    Or maybe not.
    Noses and eyes may be passed down the genetic ladder, but pride, honour and patriotism?

    Ain’t necessarily so!
    So let’s make sure these parasites are laid off.
    They have done NOWT to earn a voting place in parliament, and NOBODY voted for them.
    By all means let them hang on to the lordly titles they disgrace, but their seats in the UK legislature should be forfeit.
    Along with the bags of cash they squeeze from the UK tax-payers!
    ——-

    A Lord attending everyday the House is in session could claim £39,000 tax free – the equivalent of a pro rata rate of over £150,000 a year.

      Very well-illustrated.
      I enjoy these colorful posts you produce when you’re in a hurry.
      They make the point well.

    That’s a quote from one of the petitions listed further down the page, and is a strong argument in itself for getting rid of this pack of weasels whom NOBODY voted for.

    Frankly, I preferred the hereditary system. At least there was an element of chance in its composition!

    Yet even before the invidious invention of ‘life peerages,’ the sort of grand old lords who fought brave fights a hundred or more years ago in defence of our Ulster kin were already being swamped by disgusting additions…

    =

    =

    …hereditary peerages conferred willy-nilly by successive politicians on their chums, an ‘honours system’ which even granted knighthoods to grimly inappropriate individuals from the media world, like the co-founder of the 1930s Left Book Club, Victor Gollancz…

    …whose break with Orwell came when he declined to publish Orwell’s account of the Spanish Civil War, Homage To Catalonia…   http://discworld.wikia.com/wiki/Victor_Gollancz_Ltd.

    …which famously exposed the essential evil of communism.

    But those are stories for another day.

    Now?

    0000000000000

    Remain-backing lords succeeded in their bid to amend the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill to force ministers to set out the steps taken during negotiations with Brussels to enable the UK to stay in a customs union with the bloc.

    Peers backed the amendment by 348 votes to 225, with 24 Conservatives, including former deputy prime minister Lord Heseltine and former health secretary https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/04/18/peers-inflict-heavy-defeat-government-bid-keep-uk-customs-union/

    When an un-democratic, in fact anti-democratic, supranational entity like the EUSSR…

    =

    =

    ….is getting overt support against the British people from a ‘British’ institution with no democratic mandate whatsoever, it’s time to do something about it.

    Abolish the lot of ’em!,

    00000

    I append links to a variety of petitions, so have a look, see what most appeals to you, and sign on.

      I must read them all carefully.
      Then I will sign them all.
      If the petitions don’t get the job done, I remember from our school history lessons that the French chopped the heads off all their lords.
      Vive La France, as they say.

      Short but sweet!
      You should do more like this one, Ross.
      Sometimes you get so irate at the bad things happening in this world that you bang on about it too long.
      I understand why but it is a little like overkill.
      I have never had a lot of time for Heseltine, such a high and mighty opinion of himself. .
      If May had any principles, she would have him expelled from the Conservative Party but then she is not really a conservative.
