Gangsters and prostitutes

Stanley Kubrik was reported in the Guardian, June 5th, 1963, as having said:

The great nations have always acted like gangsters and the small nations like prostitutes.

Similarly with political parties, the great parties have always acted like gangsters and the small parties like prostitutes or, as the Telegraph put it today:

Influential adviser Lord Ashdown defends prospect of alliance as party is accused of behaving “like every harlot in history”.

Our actual democratic voice in this matter is, of course, ignored by the power-mongers.  Clegg came over, in the debates, as Slick-Nicky and his deception of the Tories in the last few days as a means of getting rid of Brown and reinstalling the defeated Labour Party as the government only goes to confirm that perception.

    I would believe Clegg wishes to follow in Churchill footsteps and play party against party however, he is doing this not due to own beliefs but own desires. He probably believes he could some how gain more power than he is entitled to. Hoping that he could pass a fair amount on to the E.U and start to integrate more E.U power into the government. Which ultimately leaves him with less in the hand, but what he is seeking is popularity. So the public’s attentions (in the bush) will be a good enough replacement for extra E.U regulations he would have to adhere to. Although Clegg for all his bark , hasn’t the equivalent in bite. I could see things going very wrong for him, if the E.U were to be allowed to govern as a united states of Europe.

    “The great nations have always acted like gangsters and the small nations like prostitutes.”

    Sounds like the United Nations.

    I agree with you about Clegg pitting party against party,but he did that in the debates,which urned me off of him.

    I think he is very slick in how he went over to talk with Labour,no doubt insisting hee could not support them witth Brown at helm,whilst simulataneously exerting pressure on Cameron to bow to his demands.

    So now Brown is out and Camron has been brought to heel. For now.

    Dirty dirty,dirty!
