Hey, remember all that twaddle that was fed to the gullible masses about Brexit meaning we will be able to take back control? Yes, of course, it was rubbish because we're already a sovereign nation and masters of our own destiny. Well, I only bring it up now because in the last few months some cabinet Brexiters and others have been firing up the rhetoric about European Union membership claiming it has resulted in the loss of our independence. Yet at the same time, these politicians are part of a government that is willing to surrender it.
This week we heard that the reason Sajid Javid took the cowardly decision to drop the government’s objection to the death penalty in the case of two ISIS suspects was to appease the Trump administration. The home secretary was so scared of upsetting the moron in the Oval Office that he went against the longestablished UK policy of opposing capital punishment around the world. The USA says jump and our government says, how high? At times, it appears to be nothing more than a subservient Poodle to the White House, surrendering foreign policy and British independence to the US.
Oh my, her cover is terrible. She sounds like a cross between a cat in its death throes and a drunk pensioner clinging onto a karaoke mic for dear life. I've heard some of her albums in the past and a few songs aren't all that bad, but this reversion of a pop classic is a hideous mistake, worse than any song you can imagine. I think I’ll stick with John’s version.
