What we saw in parliament during the pretend debate over the government’s latest draconian Covid measures wasn’t democracy in action but rather the ghost of a charade of a pantomime of a mockery of democracy: empty words and gestures with zero purpose because the result had already been decided long ago.

More lockdowns, more restrictions, more masks, more needless destruction of livelihoods and freedoms had always been part of The Plan, so the government with help from the Labour Opposition benches voted accordingly…

But — not to defend them exactly: I’m quite sure they’re a bunch of craven, useless second-raters — I’m not sure that any of them could have made much difference because parliaments aren’t really sovereign any more. Decisions are taken at a supranational rather than a national level. What we’re experiencing now is something called ‘global governance.’

It’s not quite the kooky idea of a one-world government of the New World Order but something slightly more subtle and probably more dangerous. If it were a recognisable government entity we could fight to overthrow it. But instead, it’s a series of nebulous committees, meeting behind closed doors, friendships between like-minded and powerful people, embedding all manner of rules in the system which we are powerless to change because neither we nor our elected representatives ever get a meaningful vote on them.

Signing on for Net Zero will do even more long-term damage to democracy than the ‘pandemic.’ It will be an extinction level event. What the Morrison and Johnson governments do not understand – like the Abbott and Howard governments before them – is that lies must be exterminated entire. There is no point or honour in a tawdry via media that purports to make those lies more ‘sensible’ or ‘moderate.’ Do read all of Delingpole’s column.

    Ever since the UK Parliament passed the Climate Change Act in 2008 (only five MPs voting against), committing Britain to drastic reductions in carbon emissions, the climate-change debate internationally as well as in Britain has had a unique character—that of sleepwalking into catastrophe…..

    For Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, writing in the London Daily Telegraph, points to a new development in climate politics: the climate legal warriors are weaponising international law, in particular human rights law, to prevent legislatures and governments from pursuing policies they think wise and may have been elected to pursue, by the power of international and domestic courts to interpreting treaties like the Paris Accords.

    “There has been a cascade of judgments based on the UN Convention, the European Convention on Human Rights, or national constitutions. They are compelling governments to act faster than they had planned, or are capable of doing without resorting to revolutionary economic and social measures.”……

    Do lawfare warriors really represent the judgment of mankind? Or merely the convictions of zealous minorities who exploit the somnolence of most citizens in order to rig the rules of politics and law so that when the majority wakes up, it will be unable to express its more conscious and deliberative second thoughts in the voting booth with any practical effect? If the latter, democracy will be the biggest victim of climate change to date.

    JournoList but on a much bigger scale, across many more institutions, such as the FBI. The threat of what Trump might do in a second term was terrifying to them. Trump simply had to go.

    The best and most important defence of Trump is that he was the only world leader completely indifferent to the pull and cajoling of the elitist mob.
