Having watched Theresa May’s statement to Parliament today, in regard to Brexit and the agreement of the European Union to our exit from their ‘prison’, I was struck by the fact that Parliament has become a ‘Posturing Palace’.
Watching May’s opening statement , which as usual was ‘commended to the House’, I was struck by how lie followed lie which, in turn, followed lie. Not to be outdone where fantasy was concerned on the part of May, I was also struck, in general, by the paucity of the questions raised by our politicians. As usual, where pertinent questions were raised (few in number) , they were not answered. One can but suppose that politicians work on the ‘Goebbels Principle’: repeat a lie often enough and it then becomes accepted as truth.
