I was utterly disgusted to hear the comments of Farage, the new darling of the BBC, today. To try to make political capital on the back of the appalling Berlin terrorist attack is bad enough but to attempt to pin the blame for the attack on Merkel was utterly shameful.
I may not share Merkel’s general political views but she was brave enough and had enough human compassion to take the lead in helping refugees from the middle east. Compare that with the UK government all but turning its back on fellow human beings.
Goodness me what is happening in the UK these days when our political leaders help create and sustain wars in the middle east whilst sitting back and doing so little to assist with the human suffering that is a direct consequence?
And what on earth is going on within the BBC when they give huge profile day in day out to a man like Farage? He’s not even an MP yet his every utterance is treated as though he speaks for the UK. I have long been a supporter of the BBC but after its appalling coverage of the EU Referendum and now its love in with man who in my view stands firmly against traditional British values of tolerance, helping our fellow man and woman in distress and common decency I have to say I have had it with the BBC.
These are dark days indeed. Days when our elected leaders are weak and driven by the opinions of an out of control right wing press. Days when we as an country care little for those with nothing and when we allow our government to run the NHS into the ground. Days when our government deliberately under-funds care for the elderly whilst throwing huge amounts of money on weapons of war.
And you know this dangerous malaise is not just festering within our fascist leaning government and its UKIPian wing. It’s got a home within other political parties as well all be it often couched in less obviously strident language, but sadly it is there.
I really do fear where the path that we are daily treading is taking us.
