    FARC – Democracy Got It Right On Santos’ Dirty Deal! 


    Just doing the washing, prior to a welcome visitor’s arrival, and listening to France24 news in the background.

    What they regard as ‘news’ comes as no surprise, and is the price that lousy politicians who despise democracy will almost inevitably pay for their hubris.

    ———–

    As we have said before, the nasty FARC communist terrorists…

    ==

    ….were given not only amnesty but even seats in the national parliament of Colombia.

    President Santos put the dirty deal to the people in a referendum…

    …and the people threw it out.

    ————–

    Sell-out Santos

    00000000

    Rather than accept the basic principles of democracy, Santos got the Reds to approve a few cosmetic changes, then brought it back for approval – but NOT by his fellow-citizens.

    NO MORE OF THAT DEMOCRACY NONSENSE!

    He dissed the electorate, using his party political cronies in the legislature to rubber-stamp his scheme.  Colombian Sell-Out Santos Crawls To Reds, Betrays Democracy 

    ===

    The ‘international community colluded shamelessly in what a recent Forbes magazine article referred to as  an internationally-lauded peace agreement   Colombia’s Presidential Election Is Making Peace More Difficult showing their contempt for the Colombian people’s verdict.

    Nobel Peace Prize winner: Colombian president Juan Santos 

    ‘Yay, they are as eendeeferent to democracy as me! Let’s all enjoy ze luxury of crappeeng on ze voters!’

    Pope Francis, headed to Colombia, will promote peace accord 

    I’m surprised there are any Catholics left in Colombia!

    ==========

    And now chickens are coming home to roost.

    We read that the FARC terrorists are weary of their pretended commitment to a democratic society, about 55 percent having left the rural camps where they were expected to make the transition back to civilian life…

    Santos propagandists are arguing desperately that many are just breaking free from the once total control of their former commanders….

    HOWEVER…many fear they could be joining criminal gangs or a dissident FARC movement that has about 1,000 fighters nationwide.Colombia’s peace deal with FARC wanes on first anniversary

    For pity’s sakes.

    Why can’t they just admit that making deals with evil is crass folly.

    Communists are not to be dealt with as if they are merely some variant of normal politics.

    The proper course of action for any government confronted by red revolution is to demand immediate surrender.

    If that is not forthcoming..?

    A Swiss Reminder Of John Major’s Despicable Euro-Grovel 


    AHA.

    Even on Alpine slopes, namby-pamby weeds can flourish!

    =

    =

    What else can we deduce from The Leftal, sorry, The Local’s news, that ‘a group of Swiss citizens has launched a petition aiming to make it illegal under Swiss law for parents to slap or smack their children.’

    =

    =

    The wet wallies call themselves ‘No To Violence Against Children,’ and they plan to hand in a petition to the Swiss government with the aim of changing its mind, after the lower house of parliament voted against legislation on the subject last May.

    https://www.thelocal.ch/20171113/should-parents-be-banned-from-smacking-their-children’

    A quick slap from a responsible mum or dad can work wonders, but it’s up to each parent to decide when or if such sensible discipline should be applied.That’s presumably what the legislators thought.

    Unlike some other countries, Switzerland doesn’t qualify a slap by parents in the home as corporal punishment and has faced criticism from the UN on the subject.

    If some pinko twits disagree, then Switzerland has a democratic constitution, does it not, which gives them the right to start a citizens’ initiative?Don’t collect signatures for a petition…

    ….but for a referendum, and let EVERY Swiss decide in the ballot-box whether or not a smack or a trip to the wood-shed should be outlawed.

    But there’s no mention of the whiners doing that.Perhaps they suspect their far-out folly would be voted down if subjected to the test of democracy.

    =

    But why, above, do I mention John Major?

    =

    Because it was he who U-turned most cravenly, and bowed to the robed cretins of the Euro-Court, when they ordered him to end corporal punishment in the UK schools.

    Not only did Major thus scorn his own citizens, who had NO sympathy with the creeps who wanted to ban the cane and the tawse from class-rooms throughout the British Isles…

    =

    Scots tawse in action

    ===

    …but he made himself a laughing-stock too!

    =

    =

    When the House of Commons, not long before the Clown-Court ruling, voted for the continuation of corporal punishment, Major had cast his vote with the majority of MPs and reflected the majority will of the British people.

    ======

    Yet within months, when HMV in Strasbourg snapped their wine-sodden robes and ordered him to flout his conscience and diss democracy, Major did so, shamefully.

    =======

    A spineless cur  beyond compare!

    Yet these days, he’s dredged up as a champion of the Anti-Brexit cause.

    Sir John Major attacks ‘unreal’ Brexit vision

    True Solidarity Against Gaystapo – Karen's Bucharest Battle 


    Many of you will remember Karen Davis, who became a prisoner of conscience in the USA two years ago, when she was jailed for  five days after refusing to issue licenses for homo-weddings in Kentucky.

    =====

    Kim Davis in Romania.

    =====

    Now she’s showing true solidarity, spending nine days in Romania, to work with the pro-decency forces there, organised as Coalition for the Family.

    There’s to be a referendum soon, at last, on a constitutional amendment to outlaw so-called ‘gay’ marriage.

    It’s taken Romanian politicians long enough to get on board, 

    …a petition calling for a referendum on constitutional change gathered 3m signatures in 2015 – six times the number required to put the demand before parliament.

    But the good guys and gals are determined.

    “We have the constitutional right and moral obligation to defend the family from trends in modern society that reduce its importance and accelerate its decline…”     https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/oct/13/romania-anti-gay-marriage-campaign-kim-davis

    More time has been wasted putting the proposed amendment up for a court ruling, as if judges have any right to intrude on democracy…

    …but with the support of all major political parties, is thought almost certain to win parliamentary backing, allowing the referendum to take place possibly as early as next month.

    British and American readers will envy Romanians their chance to take a stand against aberration, aware that the U-turning Creep Cameron arrogantly denied Brits a vote on the issue…’

    ——

    =====

    …and how the US Supreme Court subverted decency 5 votes for homo-weddings, 4 against, offering no vote at all to the millions whose values were thus flouted.

    Courageous Karen has set a splendid example of solidarity, caring about decent people far away who are fighting a brave battle against decadence.

    What a good Christmas Present a win would be, for everyone in Europe!.

    We all know that the Brexit referendum majority would have been significantly larger had not Cameron allowed foreigners to vote.

    The Chancellor has caused outrage this morning as he all but admitted that the Treasury is helping to ensure that the UK will be ill prepared for a no deal. Writing in The Times….

    ….Philip Hammond suggested as much with an admission that he will not allow spending to go ahead now on preparing for a ‘no deal’ scenario and, as a result, planning for this will only get underway at ‘the very last moment’. 

    This is absolutely unacceptable and is a dangerous ploy to get the UK to accept any deal – no matter how bad – because it is underprepared for ‘no deal’.

    If you’re far from home, you can do your bit.

    That’s more than Hammond will ever do for his country!

    Prick Up Your Ears When You Hear ‘Divisive!’ 


    The Equality Campaign has attacked a “divisive” advertisement that attempts to cast marriage equality supporters as intolerant by citing comments on social media labelling opponents “bigots.” 

    The poor little dears don’t want to divide Australians but warned the no campaign’s tactics could harm the country…

    Harm the country? .

    So the repellent witch-hunt waged against honourable Australians who won’t knuckle under, like Margaret Court, is not harmful?

    MARGARET COURT SAYS SHE WON’T BE ‘INTIMIDATED’ ON GAY MARRIAGE STANCE

    Margaret Court gay marriage controversy

    And the ‘gay’ threats and thuggery against Christians is not harmful?

    ========

    Christians threatened by same-sex hate-preachers | Herald Sun

    The pro-decency Coalition for Marriage apparently has an ad which offers screenshots of abuse on social media from people it suggests are marriage equality supporters including calling opponents “homophobic maggots,” “bigots” and expressing hope that “someone kicks your teeth in.”

    That’s a neat Guardian trick that, people it suggests are marriage equality supporters,  as if it wasn’t gaystapo bullies engaged in intimidation!

    Then we have a queer twit named Tim Wilson, one of Turnbull’s Liberal MPs…

    Gambar terkait

    ….who takes terrible exception to the Coalition for Marriage’s ad, because to feature the abuse in an ad “seeks to inflame discussion.”

    So the clown reckons gaystapo abuse should go unremarked, when we know that cowardly, vicious bullying is the hall-mark of the militant homo agenda?Incredibly, he claims the pro-decency  campaign is “trying to bait people into being ferocious in the debate, and that’s not what we should be doing.”

    At least we get a bit of sense from another MP, Eric Abetz..

    “Once again, this commentary is all one-way traffic, suggesting that the no campaign is inflaming a situation when it is exposing what is occurring and will occur in the event of the yes campaign being successful.”

    Oh, so that mangy thug said so, did he, and that’s the end of it?

    Get real, gaystapo bint.

    But let’s get real about and get rid of, that ridiculous word DIVISIVE!

    Here’s another, unrelated report.

    Swiss voters rejected on Sunday a divisive pension reform plan that the government proposed to address the needs of an ageing population.

    https://www.thelocal.ch/20170924/swiss-vote-against-plan-to-save-pensions

    Fear not!

    =

    =

    Although I write about a lot of events all over the world, my aim today is NOT to debate the rights and wrongs of how Switzerland treats its oldsters.

    It’s that word ‘divisive!’

    Here’s a few instances, just from a casual surf round Google, of its use and misuse.

    The most obvious current example of the latter is the controversy raging about some scum in America.

    ==

    Foto Cynthia Marie.

    ,

    It Was Just Divisive.’ Tom Brady Speaks Out After Trump Slams NFL …

    For months now we have seen one oaf after another squatting instead of standing proudly for the Star-Spangled Banner at American sports events.

    There can be few forms of behaviour more divisive, reminiscent of the racist BLM, a gang motivated by sheer hate…

    – Black Lives Matter co-founder tweets about killing “men and white folks”

    ….which seeks to elevate one race above others!

    Yet klutzes like this Big-Mouth Brady and his running dogs 0n CNN etc. DARE call President Trump ‘divisive’ when he urges Americans to behave as good citizens always have done!

    ——–

    Now an example of the word’s proper use.

    SIS: Launderette’s ‘Muslim only’ policy divisive

    A vicious sectarian bigot in Malaysia, backed by his malignant ‘mufti,’ thinks it’s AOK to turn customers away from his launderette if they don’t worship the way he does.

    THAT is quintessentially ‘divisive,’ yes, and primitive!

    (As you probably expect, I have more to say on this, and will publish on the issue in the next ten minutes!)

    But many of the cases of misuse, indeed, abuse, of the word tend to crop up as complaints against democracy.

    That Swiss pension issue had a lot of people taking one side or the other in the debate.

    I hold no views, nor am I much interested, but when public opinion is divided, then the obvious, and honourable, way forward is debate and then vote.

    That’s the opposite of being ‘divisive.’

    Yet according to those dissatisfied with the outcome, or even with what they think may be the likely outcome, it’s democracy that’s divisive.

    Chaos at new airport pushes Berlin into divisive vote

    Government urges Sturgeon to drop ‘divisive‘ referendum plans

     Oh, and here’s a classic!

    However, given the experience that I have I can tell you that referendums are, by nature, divisive…When Can I Vote ‘No’ To More Referendums?

    I have never quite understood why democratic decision-making might be regarded as ‘divisive.’

    Again, the whole point of democracy is that when opinions are divided, as on most issues, in most countries, they usually are…

    .

    …a free and fair vote is the proper way to settle the argument.

    Then we accept that we lost the argument, and unite behind the people’s decision, which, by having participated in the debate and the democratic process, we are morally obliged to do.

    In a free country,  it’s only divisive when the losers on the vote won’t accept the result.

    Of course, in due course, ten years or so, then a debate can be revived, and a campaign for another vote undertaken.

    Life will go on meantime…

    =

    ]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]

    …but please note, ten years or so is a rational gap, surely, NOT the four decades plus ( 1975 – 2016) it took to get a re-run for Brits on the EUSSR.

    My return to this subject is prompted by one news broadcast telling us that the ‘US, UK Turkey and Iran’ are united in opposition to the Kurds’ exercise in self-determination.

    We mentioned this earlier this month.

    Similarly hostile is the UN, which, if I’m not wrong, has some theoretical commitment in its Charter to every people’s right to be free.

    Are Trump and May at ease in such company?

    Iraq’s boundaries are an artificial construct, drawn up after World War I. They make no more sense than do many other borders created by imperial powers.

    But the difference in Kurdistan is that circumstances have given the Kurds the opportunity to re-draw those borders, thanks to their heroic soldiers (of both sexes) who have fought the good fight against the ISIS rape-gang.

    Australia – Guardian Gaystapo Gal Gives Gag Guarantee! 


    Imagine if a leader of a major party in YOUR country decided to challenge the PC elite that does its worst to suppress honest debate about multicult migration.

    Suppose a man or woman with a fair chance of becoming head of government issued a clarion call for patriots to rise up and resist, to force the arrogant in-crowd to halt the alien influx of phoney ‘refugees.’

    “Now is the not the time to cower. It is not the time to hide. It’s the time to stand up. To stand up for yourself. To stand up for your friends, your family, your loved ones.

    “It’s time to fight for the country we want to be”

    An inspirational call to arms, right?

    But it is the measure of Western decadence that the source of that fighting talk was not exhorting the too-long silent  – or silenced – majority to take a stand against the ‘asylum’ horde….

    ….to demand a referendum on repudiation of supranational conventions used as sticks to beat your own folk, by the UN and other sticky-beak agencies…

    …and to reform laws that inhibit ostensibly sovereign nations from deporting  undesirable aliens en masse.

    Then she runs through various arguments which may or may not feature in the weeks ahead and makes it very clear that she sees no reason for objective, impartial coverage of any case she doesn’t deem acceptable!

    Katharine Murphy

    …whose contempt for the legitimate opposition to what she ludicrously describes as ‘marriage equality’ comes across loud and clear in her hysterical scribbling about the deep hurt of the LGBTI community, the pious righteousness of so-called Christian groups inclined to judge.   https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2017/aug/10/shortens-impassioned-yes-plea-for-marriage-equality-channels-both-empathy-and-outrage

    ‘So-called Christians?’

    Maybe Murphy’s angling for a job with ABC…ABC program shows the broadcaster’s anti-Christian agenda

    Or has she been appointed as official theology guru, that she can declare ministers and congregations of churches  as heretical if they resist gaystapo attacks on the institution of marriage?

    And what the heck’s she rabbiting about?

    ‘Deep Hurt?‘ Is she referring to the possible discomfort queers experience when engaged in mutual anal penetration?

    This weird woman finds it abhorrent that a proper democratic debate is about to get going, with a democratic outcome, citizens making their choices known, via a ballot. She deplores this as a  public popularity contest, a gladiatorial battle where everyone will fight, and turn up the volume, and thunder and hector, and be outrageous, because that is the way of things.

    It’s called DEMOCRACY, STUPID!

    But she just hates that idea.

    As of Thursday afternoon, marriage equality became like an American presidential race. It became about getting the vote out. The only method of activation is the marshalling of armies.

    Good!

    May the ranks of decency prevail.

      I know you have no time for Turnbull but he has done his best to keep his word in the face of the Senate’s hostility to consulting the people. You should give him a word of praise. I wish David Cameron had given the British people that much respect but he just rammed the redefinition of marriage through Westminster because he was scared a people’s vote would bloc his plan.

      What’s going to be intriguing in Australia is how fair the campaign during the ballot period will be. The media are mostly pro-homosexual and lack any kind of interest in being objective, as your examples from the Guardian amply demonstrate.

      The vindictive ‘gay’ lobby are furious about the people getting a vote and will be doing all they can to intimidate Christian, Muslim and Jewish people who hold fast to the values in their scriptures.
      It will also be worth watching to see how the publicly-funded and far-left ABC will give both sides equal time.
      I can’t see that happening.

      There’s also going to be abuses like that reportedly planned by one council in Victoria, which I am sending and hope you can write about.

      Most interesting of all will be what happens if the queers find that a majority has voted against them.
      There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth, and not even a smidgin of respect for the democratic process.
      If the queers win, on the other hand, Australia will see more and more persecution of people with decent values.which is what is happening in the UK.

    After our recent post on how the EUSSR is threatening Swiss democracy…

    NB Team Brexit! Brussels’ Swiss Lackeys War Down Democracy! 

    …somebody sent me a link to a story which I seem to have missed last month.

    How I missed it I don’t know, because it’s from The Leftal, sorry The Local, whose often biased output I often peruse.

    It’s opening words are a stanza of hope.

    The Swiss People’s Party (SVP) proposal to put Swiss law above international law would weaken Switzerland and threaten human rights…

    Swiss government slams SVP’s self-determination initiative

    Switzerland’s had a lot to put up with in recent years.

    We’ve covered the obnoxious ingrates who migrated to the Alpine country and then told their hosts it was time to change their famous flag…Islamist Flag Demands Make Swiss – and Ross – Cross! …because it grated on their sectarian prejudices.

    oooo

    And then there was the case of that equally obnoxious backward brat!

    Swiss School Panders To Sectarian Brats! 

    ooooo

    And we have heard outrageous shrilling from the human rights agitprop gangs who fawn on undesirables, like the 19-year-old dual national who intended to join Isis, saying the SEM ( Swiss Migration Office) wanted to strip him of his Swiss nationality even though he hadn’t yet been convicted of any crime.

    What kind of ‘rights’ nut-jobs would take up the case of such a vile slug and whine at his proposed exclusion?

    Amnesty, of course!

    =======

    So it’s high time ‘human rights’ was exposed for what it is – a slogan!

    Civic rights, constitutional rights, democratic rights – no problem.

    Those are part of the contract between government and the governed in civilised countries.

    Abstract notions about some other kind of ‘rights,’ on the other hand, are an excuse for so-called ‘NGOs’ and un-elected tribunals and worse, external, supranational sticky-beaks like the ECHR, the EUSSR and…

    ..

    UN Hypocrisy – Time To Stop Crawling To Sexist Primitives? 

    …the rancid hypocrites who sit on that disgusting ‘UN Human Rights Council,’ to intrude on national sovereignty.

    But the Swiss political in-crowd don’t see it that way!

    They’re ranting and raving at the latest SVP popular initiative – which last year gathered enough signatures to put it to a referendum…

    So what’s got the Federal Council’s left-liberal lederhosen in a twist?

    Admirably entitled ‘Swiss Law Instead of Foreign Judges (Initiative for Self-Determination,’ the SVP (Swiss People’s Party) move is not complicated.

    It’s the kind of law every patriot in every country should be proud to champion, calling for Switzerland to put Swiss law above international law and, if necessary, renegotiate or renounce international treaties it has signed, including the Convention on Human Rights.

     WUNDERBAR!

    How many Brits or Aussies, for that matter, would like to see their countries extricated from that damnable convention?

    It was drawn up after WW2 but has been bastardised since, with notions of ‘rights’ that would have made the original signatories gasp.

    When Britain signed up, for example, every school-child knew that if he or she stepped out of line the cane or the strap was within easy reach of their teacher.

    Similarly with corporal punishment for criminals.

    Similarly with capital punishment, banned yet no ban ever mentioned when the convention was formulated.

    Same goes for that Refugee Convention, subject these days to wholesale deliberate misinterpretation by so-called ‘NGOs’ and all the vilest lawyer-lice to brandish at sensible governments.

    But back to the report and the SVP’s case!

    The patriot party asserts that the ‘elites’ consider international treaties to be more important than Swiss-made legislation…

    .

    “The people and the cantons have, for example, approved the unilateral management of immigration and the expulsion of foreign criminals, but politicians refuse to apply these decisions, invoking international law…”

    And that’s ABSOLUTELY true. The establishment parties have stabbed the people in the back! Read the linked post from last week at the top of our page.

    The elite despise democracy.

    Late last year the government decided not to fully implement an SVP-led anti-immigration initiative, approved by the public in a 2014 referendum, because it would contravene its free movement agreement with the EU.
     
     

    So how does the elite feel on being told that referendum decisions should be t applied “without discussion and regardless of whether they please or do not please the ‘elites’ of federal Bern?”

     Unbelievably, the Federal RAT (German for ‘Council’) said the initiative “threatens the stability and loyalty of Switzerland…”

    HUH?

    Democracy’s THAT dangerous?

     The leftist Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga, who has in the past actually shown some sense, is an exemplar of the hostility shown towards self-determination, and she singled out that foul ‘rights’ convention.

    =

    Simonetta Sommaruga

    ======

    She finds it downright scary that a referendum, date yet to be determined, could allow the Swiss nation to define its own human rights.

     

    WHY the HELL NOT?

     Is she seriously saying it’s simply absurd to trust Swiss men and women to determine their laws and customs via the ballot box…

    …….

    …to do what’s best for their country without having to obtain approval from supranational court-cliques ready to cudgel them into line?

    Well, yes, she is saying exactly that about the European Convention!

    “…I think it’s absurd to talk about ending it,” she said.

    In other words, she trusts a panel of robed aliens in Strasbourg to defend Swiss rights more than she trusts her own fellow-countrymen and women?

    Oh, and here’s her take on the risk of mere voters deciding if and when a treaty has outlived its usefulness.

    ====

    “A Switzerland that wants to sign an agreement with another country but who says ‘maybe one day we won’t want to do this, we’ll maybe want to renegotiate but we don’t know yet’ is no longer a loyal partner.”
    GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY!

    She sounds like a UK Remoaner….once ye get in there, ye’ll never get out – as the old Ulster song about Purgatory goes!

    This socialist harpy could not be more explicit on her commitment to supranationalism.

    Once a country signs a treaty, it may NEVER reconsider if that treaty actually benefits its people?

    If one government adheres to some convention, all subsequent governments are thereby bound in perpetuity?


     

    Shove, it, Signorina!

      Every time somebody starts talking about human rights I know it will be about rights for illegal immigrants or some other kind of criminals or else the ever-moaning ‘gays’ and not much heard about our rights, rights of law-abiding people who live or try to live normal lives.
      It should be up to the Swiss to decide what rights people have in their own country and not that European Court or the UN.
      I wish we had the Swiss kind of democracy in Britain. Life would be so much better without foreign interference.

    Guardian Lies! On Marriage, “Germany” Will Get NO Vote! 


    This must be the most dishonest headline any of the left media have produced for years.

    Germany to vote on same-sex marriage after Merkel drops opposition

    The story beneath that headline makes it absolutely clear that the decision on the degradation of marriage will be made by a mere few hundred politicians in the Bundestag…

    …as if their moral compass is somehow superior to that of everyday German people.

    Germany will get NO vote at all, on this or any other issue, because Germany NEVER permits national referenda.

    Only Eire, as far as I know, has allowed its citizens to vote on so-called ‘gay’ so-called ‘marriage.’

    Oh, and Slovenia, where the people have more sense of right and wrong than Eire, since Slovenes rejected the ghastly proposal.

    Victory – Kids Come First In Slovenia! 

    Despite the Eire outcome, homos and their homophiliac allies fear genuinely democratic decision making on such matters.

    We have seen how the mincing fraternity in Australia have thrown a collective tantrum at the prospect of a plebiscite there.

    The Oz gaystapo have donned their pink jackboots…

    =

    =

    …and used their financial clout and gangster tactics to intimidate decent Australians…

    Gaystapo War Down Religious Liberty In Melbourne! 

    …but even so, they STILL shrink from the risk of popular rejection.

    And that’s odd, because, as the Guardian claims about Germans, polls seem to show that Australians are eager to exalt homo-menages into legal parity with real marriage.

    It makes one think back to the polls carried out before the American election last year.

    Gambar terkait

    Were they just badly organised, or were their predictions calculated to achieve the result desired by the establishment?

    Anyway, there’s still hope that the grim development ill not come to pass.

    the Constitutional Court – the highest legal authority in the land – insists that “the unity of a man and a woman still belongs to the essential components of marriage.”

    If the Constitutional Court were to reject a new law on same sex marriage, the Bundestag would need to vote on a change to the constitution, something that requires a two-thirds majority.   https://www.thelocal.de/20170629/why-the-attempt-to-legalize-gay-marriage-could-still-fail

    By the time such a ruling is made, if it IS made, the parliamentary election will have taken place…

    ….and one hopes a sizeable contingent of AfD members will be there in the Bundestag to fight for traditional German values.

    They ought to be the beneficiaries, if Mama Stasi’s party, bizarrely still calling itself the ‘Christian Democrats,’ pays an electoral price for Merkel’s sell-out, for sure!.

      This woman is like a devil, she just now says she voted NO but she tells us yesterday that she was NOT against it. Her reason for vote is that it is unconstitutional.
      What meaning have her words, or sense?.
      Truly she is the cultural marxist you have said of her many times.
      We Germans will be mad to trust her ever again.

      Fishy how Merkel did that to her country and her party, looks like Germans get no say in it and it looks like we Australians won’t either.
      Democracy?
