Well it's only a choice between Globalist One and Globalist Two so who cares at this point

-8 ( +7 / -15 )

Once again its worth mentioning that the use of the pejorative "Globalist" is widely used as a reference to "Jews" and is Bannon-speak for the antisemitic troupe that a secret global Jewish conspiracy rules the world from behind the scenes.

But no person wishing to be thought of as sane says "Jews" anymore. So they say "Globalist" instead.

Its still a disgusting slur that has no place here.

Agreed, but consider it is also a pejorative for the UN and this inchoate fear of "One World Government" and their "black helicopters". These people either do not know or do not care that the leaders of the Allied nations in WWII, looking at eventual victory wanted to not repeat the mistakes that led to that horrible war. They met and devised a UN, a World Bank and International Monetary Fund among other institutions, and the Europeans would devise a Common Market, all tied to the proposition that tying nations together in mutual trade would enrich their people and prevent the economic conditions that allowed fascists, nationalists and communists to create so much misery for the world. Now those institutions are under sustained attack by a new generation of fascists, nationalists and communists, plus now we add in a layer of religious fundamentalism to the mix. A global world view was supposed to prevent groups from developing beggar thy neighbor trade polices and the bunker mentality that leads to war.

I also shake my head at the "liberal elites" slander. Most of us liberals are working and living paycheck to paycheck. The real money and the people with political power are corporate types who are almost unanimously conservative. We become liberal because we consider the way the tax, justice and political systems are stacked in favor of wealthy whites and large corporations and strongly work against the betterment of the poor and non-whites. There isn't anything even a little bit elite about living paycheck to paycheck barely able to save, or having to chose between health insurance or affording the rent. Elite my aching backside.

Nothing is free, also not any medical child birth costs or paid benefits for the parents. That’s even in the best cases either paid by the tax payers or by the health insurance members. Spare us such wishful theories or communist like arguments. There isn’t such a thing in real practice like paradise or real communism, nowhere and never.

Well, I guess it's either the CCP or Russia who are behind this threat.... though you never know, could also be India, or even the Scots..

“though you never know, could also be India”

You really think that India will interfere on behalf of Sunak when he has been praised by the China mouthpiece Global Times? 

Besides Indian hackers are not as good as Russian or Chinese hackers. The hacking community in India don’t get much government support unlike Russia, China or US. I know this much firsthand.

Ugh I don't take Globalist to mean "Jews" if anything I would think it refers to the same global elite that meet for the "World economic forum" of the "Bilderberg group" you know the same people that say "you will own nothing and be happy" pretty sure Klaus Schwabb is on the record saying that they have "infiltrated governments around the world with their young global leaders". In that context I would agree that the choice is between two Globalist but also the opposition has basically the same policies so your looking at voting for non elected officials either way because the WEF has their influence in both parties. Call it want you will conspiracy theory etc but I doubt they are antisemitic more like and human.

The vote is between an economic nationalist (Sunak) like Abe, and an ideological nationalist (Truss) like Kishida. Truss is regarded as a female version of Boris and supported by the Brexit lobby and the right of the party. If Truss wins, the UK will be further isolated from EU trade as Truss pursues the 'race to the bottom' in standards, UK shortages will increase and sterling will edge down some more. Both candidates have promised to spend borrowed billions to try to buy the next election.

The article is not about external interference in the election. GCHQ presumably pointed out that the Tories' voting system was hopelessly insecure. Not sure how, if they are using a postal vote, but most UK government tech is rubbish and UK politicians are not especially competent at the best of times.

@Wobot: And you are a Conservative Party Member with a vote are you? Somehow, I think not.

Yep your nose out of something you have no cares about - if anything you probably support the hack.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

Many of the stalwarts of the Conservative party who tend to be 65+, wealthy, white and in private a tad "old fashioned" (read racist) will find it difficult to vote for Sunak. Not all but enough to make a difference. So it looks like the UK will end up with the worst of all the original candidates becoming the next PM.

Regardless of how you “take it”, that’s exactly how it’s used and exactly what those who spread it mean. When they say “the global elites” or “banking cartels” they really mean “Jews like George Sorose.”

Don’t be thick.

And looks every bit as stupid as well.

The above is an extremely stupid comment. They aren't wishful theories - I'm in Canada right now whether healthcare is free. You're an idiot if you think this country is communist.
