Leadership

a real leader does not court popularity and consensus

In May 1940 Winston Churchill was not popular within the government, he was seen as a rebel within parliament, and not that many of the ordinary ‘men in the street’ even knew who he was.  Yet Churchill knew something that even his own king wasn’t prepared to admit; Hitler and the Nazi party were the very personification of evil.  There could never be a negotiated peace with Hitler’s hellish regime.  England would have to go on and on fighting Germany, even though there seemed very little prospect of victory.  Eventually, through sheer vision, oratory, and force of personality W.S. Churchill carried the government, parliament, the people of the United Kingdom and the World with him to victory over the evil empires of Germany and Japan.

But then, Churchill was a true leader.

The men at the top of the United Kingdom and the United States; Boris Johnson and Joe Biden, are not leaders.  They are mere mouthpieces for their cabinets and special advisors, with one eye on public opinion and the other on whatever populist cause is making the headline news.

Boris is in thrall to his squeeze Carrie Symonds and her far-left extreme green views.  The man who once said that wind farms ‘couldn’t pull the skin off a rice pudding’ has now committed Britain to a legally binding target of reducing carbon emissions by 78% of 1990 levels by 2035.  You can tell how insane this is because Greenpeace have described it as the ‘boldest move by any world leader…..’  Boris has also caved in on everything the nutty academics from Oxford University have told him to do when it comes to the coronavirus and lockdown.  The man isn’t even a paper tiger.

Come June Boris Johnson will be schmoozing with Joe Biden, another green freak who is expected to announce swinging carbon cuts for the USA at the UN Climate Change Conference in November, or maybe at the G7 summit in June.  Good luck trying to drive across your state in a Tesla, and forget central air in your home.  (Just check how much the price of gas has risen since Joe took office.)  President Joe also showed himself to be at best a geriatric fool when he commented on the trial Of Derek Chauvin while the jury was still out.  But then Joe’s history with the KKK shows that he knows all about racism.

We would have to go a long way to find a real leader today ~ unless we consider Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who leads only by example.

President Trump Disrupts Britain

To be an ideal guest ~ stay at home.

Have you ever had one of those house guests you wish had never turned up at all?  Well it seems that President Trump is less than an ideal candidate for a State Visit to the United Kingdom.

To be fair, this great country’s Queen Elizabeth II has hosted some very unsavory and embarrassing characters on previous state visits to her United Kingdom: from Mobutu Sese Seke in 1973, (then the president of Zaire), Robert Mugabe, in 1994, and Xi Jinping the leader of China in 2015.  At least Mr. Trump isn’t a homicidal maniac who has criminalised homosexuality or stopped women from being educated or voting.

Mr Trump is merely ill-mannered, badly educated, and prone to saying what he really thinks.  Really, in no way a typical polite and cultured American.

The president broke Royal Protocol three times when he visited the 92 years old Queen at Windsor Castle.  Firstly he kept her waiting for a quarter of an hour in 80 degree heat, he refused to bow to the Queen, instead shaking her hand, and the he turned his back on the monarch and walked ahead of her when inspecting the guard of honour.  You know what? You just don’t do that here.

An Englishman thinks all American males are ignorant, boorish, and uneducated ~ Trump proves it.

A significant proportion of the population of these Islands have protested against the President’s state visit; thousands of fucking stupid protesters have hit the streets in a display of left-leaning-liberal indignation, (including the leader of our Labour Party, the facile Jeremy Corbyn.)  I’m not certain what English law says about banners that use Fuck and Cunt in their slogans, but that was deemed perfectly acceptable in the anti-trump demonstrations.  A million people, (allegedly), have signed a petition to stop this state visit.

Meanwhile, the supposedly completely independent BBC has taken advantage of every opportunity it could find to denigrate President Trump, his State Visit, and America in general.  It’s appalling that this state-funded broadcaster has lowered itself to the same level as those ignorant rent-a-mob street protesters.

In an interview with the Sun newspaper here, Mr Trump also enraged Brexit Remainers by saying that Prime Minister Theresa May had wrecked Brexit.  And you know what?  This president says it like it is, and more often not he’s right.  As Prime Minister Mrs. May is as much use as a concrete life-preserver ~ no good at all.

So, President Trump’s State Visit has enraged some, but their petty indignation says more about their narrow-minded, juvenile attitudes that it does about Mr. Trump.

Some say that if you don’t agree with someone, you should stop them from talking.  And, that if you take to the streets and protest loudly enough you will force ‘the authorities’ to sit up and take notice.  All I know is that I like Mr. Trump better than I like the people protesting his visit to this Great Britain.
