Cynicism? Nah, business as usual. June 30, 2016

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.


Can the Irish Times be right when it notes that:

…surprise, surprise, Vote Leave has pressed delete on its website’s “history” of speeches and pledges.

It appears so.


What is most astounding is that supposed insurgent campaigns of the right (I exclude left forces pushing for a Lexit from this) built in some part about the duplicity of political discourse act as badly or worse. Is it that they literally don’t care?


But then this is the crew who can deliver this, a naked jostling and bargaining for position  amongst the main protagonists.

You couldn’t make it up.

Gove is now standing for the leadership. That email now looks a bit calculated. In probably one the few perceptive comments he ever made, Cameron called Gove a ‘maoist’. I’ve seen him in person as it happens. He has the deeply weird air that you sometimes get with politicians.

That makes sense SOs re calculation.

Gove gaining support among Brexiteers according to BBC News. In a few months we’ll be looking back fondly on an era of benevolent rule by Old Etonians 🙂

Boris has, as he’d no doubt like to see it, fallen on his sword.

the banner isn’t there anymore and the Independent didn’t link directly to any of the old pages, so I can’t tell if they are gone or not

Vote Leave’s campaign website is rebuilt for posterity http://www.wired.co.uk/article/developer-rebuilds-wiped-vote-leave-website
