UK must defend against North Korea's nuclear threat, says PM
#1
Quote:David Cameron says North Korea's nuclear possibilities are a 'real concern' for the UK, after visiting a British Naval nuclear submarine in Scotland on Thursday. The PM took a tour of the submarine following the printing of an article he wrote in the Daily Telegraph, stressing the need for strong nuclear defences. At a question and answer session after the tour, Cameron says of North Korea's weapons: 'They can reach Europe. They can reach us too'

DPF members in the UK can also watch the gormless Penny Mordaunt lie on Newsnight from a pre written script intended to fearmong the public into thinking the UK would be at risk of a nuclear attack without our nuclear "deterrent": here.

So we have Cameron shamelessly lying to the public about North Korea's missile capabilities and his lackey's are now all popping up on TV telling us how we would be in danger if we didn't have trident.

Nuclear weapons are wholly offensive. There is nothing defensive about a nuclear weapon, their only purpose is to obliterate entire civillian populations and cause as much death and destruction as possible. A missile defense system on your own border is defensive, a nuclear warhead is not.

Let me fix that quote for you Danny:
Quote:David Cameron says North Korea's refusal to be a UKUSA client state are a real concern for the UK. The PM took a tour of the of the submarine following the printing of more money stressing the need to not let this crisis go to waste since there is a multi billion pound bonanza for the MIC to be made from the protection racket. At a question and answer session after the tour, Cameron says of North Korea's weapons: 'They can reach Europe. The can reach us too. Just like The Dark Lord Voldemort.

What a beautiful word "gormless" is. It speaks volumes and I think I'm going to purloin it for the future.

This, of course, demonstrates as clearly as anything can demonstrate, the great weakness of the democratic illusion, when you have a MP, notionally said to be representing the wishes of his/her electorate, actually representing the views of his/her Prime Minister for no better reason than to curry favour and generate personal political advancement.

It's a rotten and broken system purely because once elected MPs do not represent those who elected them.

I would have a system where re-voting takes place every six months automatically.
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.

gorm·less (gôrmls)
adj. Chiefly British
Lacking intelligence and vitality; dull.
[From dialectal gawm, sense, from Middle English gome, notice, from Old Norse gaumr.]

Gormless is a fine word to describe the tools who would run our lives.

Another fine word is toady.

toad·y (td)
n. pl. toad·ies
A person who flatters or defers to others for self-serving reasons; a sycophant.
tr. & intr.v. toad·ied, toad·y·ing, toad·ies
To be a toady to or behave like a toady. See Synonyms at fawn1.

Unlike the guff that comes out of our politicians' mouths, the etymology of toady truly is a parable.

Quote:[From toad.]
Word History: The earliest recorded sense (around 1690) of toady is "a little or young toad," but this has nothing to do with the modern usage of the word. The modern sense has rather to do with the practice of certain quacks or charlatans who claimed that they could draw out poisons. Toads were thought to be poisonous, so these charlatans would have an attendant eat or pretend to eat a toad and then claim to extract the poison from the attendant. Since eating a toad is an unpleasant job, these attendants came to epitomize the type of person who would do anything for a superior, and toadeater (first recorded 1629) became the name for a flattering, fawning parasite. Toadeater and the verb derived from it, toadeat, influenced the sense of the noun and verb toad and the noun toady, so that both nouns could mean "sycophant" and the verb toady could mean "to act like a toady to someone."

How about making it a triple.

"Tosser" is also a wonderfully descriptive word, and we could/should use a combination of all three words to describe useless politicians posing a useful humans...

We could then have David Gormless, Prime Minister; George Toady, Chancellor of the Exchequer and Boris Tosser, Mayor of London - and, in future, just change the first name to accommodate new candidates coming in to office.

In a few years I can see the prospect of "Gormless" becoming the popular slang term for PM, "Toady" for the money-changer, and "Tosser" for the mayor.

It even works beautifully retrospectively:

Tony Gormless, Gordon Toady and Ken Tosser.

And further back still:

John Gormless, Norman Toady and since there was no Mayor of London back then, I favour the third title being used thus: Tosser Portillo.

Gormless, Toady and Tosser.

Proud to provide legal and PR services, and political cover, to the military-multinational-intelligence complex.
