UK Descending into Anarchy? (Nigel Jones, UK, 03/07/19 6:22 am)

I would like to endorse every word of Tim Ashby's post on the terrifying descent of my country into anarchy, exemplified by the knife crimes that are taking the lives of mainly young people almost every day.

Coupled with the betrayal of Brexit by both our major political parties, out of touch with their voters and in defiance of democracy, and the takeover of one of those parties by an openly Marxist and anti-Semitic clique, and the situation looks grim indeed.

I believe that the current Parliament has lost all legitimacy and I would like to see it swept away and replaced by a real Conservative party (not the bunch of PC no-hopers and liars who currently masquerade under that name).

Given our recent discussion of Latin American dictators, it is ironic that Britain, the mother or father of Parliamentary democracy, is now sorely in need of a new Cromwell to mend a nation that has gone badly, maybe fatally, astray.

JE comments:  At least with British steel, you cannot reach the body count we've learned to expect in the heavily armed United States.  Gallows quips aside, we are now in the three-week countdown to Brexit.  What's the latest, Nigel?

  • Brexit and Formula One Racing (from Ric Mauricio) (John Eipper, USA 03/08/19 1:08 AM)

    A few posts back, when commenting about the effects of Brexit, JE asked what in the UK would be affected.


    Well, for one thing Formula One racing may be affected. 7 out of 10 of the racing teams are headquartered in the UK and it appears their logistics may become more complicated. Keep in mind that these teams employ hundreds if not thousands of employees in the south of England, so one cannot move their operations lock, stock and barrel as fast as a Formula One car. In fact, Brexit may impact these teams negatively enough to hand Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari his fifth World Championship, thus matching Juan Manual Fangio, Lewis Hamilton, and Michael Schumacher.


    The teams having the advantage would be Ferrari and Toro Rosso, based in Italy and Alfa Romeo (formerly Sauber) based in Switzerland. This is good for my favorite driver, Kimi Raikonnen, as he is now driving for Alfa Romeo. But not so good for the comeback of a very popular driver who was severely injured 5 years ago in a rallying accident: Polish driver Robert Kubica, who is now driving for Williams.


    How I wish I were hobnobbing the last couple of week with our friend Jordi Molins as the teams prepare for the 2019 season at the Circuit de Catalunya.


    JE comments:  Interesting questions, although Formula One has long since abandoned its previous Eurocentric orientation.  Now many of the races are held in Asia and the Middle East.  Will Brexit have any impact at all on this very monied sport?  Hard to tell.
