Western states are fundamentally broken down because “liberalism” is an empty term which conceals rapacious corporate capitalism and the oligarchic rule of an elite political class. The advocates of “liberalism” like Britain’s May, Johnson, Hunt or Tusk are the ones who are anti-democracy, anti-human rights and anti-law.
The government would be better advised to concentrate on getting the country back on its tracks rather than indulging in the fantasy that, as Johnson wildly claims, exiting the European Union will mean that Britain can “have our cake and eat it”. Disaster is not far off.
Within only weeks of being fired by Prime Minister Theresa May for flagrant irresponsibility and security leaks, former UK Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson is now a leading ally of Boris Johnson in his drive to become prime minister.
