Blair

While the Conservative Party is seemingly on a course to self-destruction and Jeremy Corby wrestles with bizarre claims of anti-Semitism (the protesters don't appear to know what a Semite is) and both parties wondering how to spin the overall picture presented by last week's elections, Gordon Brown, one of, perhaps the primary, architect of the collapse of the British economy who failed to get a decent job in Europe and the IMF after his delusional claim that he saved the world, has weighed in. He's confirmed one significant fact that most politicians are reluctant to point out: the EU is, widely and fundamentally, a coalition of socialist states. Britain (at least parts of it) remain the only effective hold-out moderate, non-left-wing, state.
