Summer Editorial 2012
It's raining hard. On the horizon, more heavy clouds wait to roll across the sky. It can only be high summer in Britain and time for our quarterly editorial.
The traditional British holiday time has meant a diminution in the work load of The Unit. Who wants to talk politics when its Ascot week, Wimbledon fortnight or when there's a Test match taking place? The circuses and pantomimes laid on by our masters to distract us from reality work their magic. Obediently we reach for the remote control and settle back in our chairs.
If it's not sport then a banking crisis or a war will do. Anything to divert our attention away from what really matters.
And yet this is just the time when we do need to be active. The eurozone is going to hell in a handcart.
I recently wrote the following.
'Have you ever stopped to wonder why a collection of countries, including some of the richest in the world, have arrived at this Monty Python moment of apparent impotence where nothing can be done to check increasing unemployment, or stop businesses closing wholesale, or feed people left without food and shelter, who as a result are taking to the streets in increasing numbers?'
Six of the seventeen countries in the eurozone are going bust, shortly to be joined by France and Holland'.
This means that the faint possibility of a distant referendum on Britain's EU membership now becomes a distinct and imminent probability. Any changes in the composition of the European Union or alterations to treaties will trigger a referendum in Britain.
Realising this, all three major political parties (reluctantly) are rehearsing their well-tried recipes of obfuscation and deceit. The in/out question must not be mentioned and nothing approaching a significant return of power to Westminster considered. The Unit will be identifying these and many other manipulations of the truth and explaining what is really happening. We are hoping shortly to introduce a news programme specifically dealing with this disgraceful conduct by our so-called elected representatives.
Keep an eye on what we publish.
It might even save our country.
