Report on Russian interference.
on: July 21, 2020, 20:41:52 PM
Seems that the British government did not want to know about Russian interference during the 2016 referendum or following general elections.

Doing so meant they had plausible deniability even though the UK had suspicions of it happening. Of course Boris denied everything, but then he would being a complete and utter liar.

I'm not surprised by any of this. Hunger for power and greed has fuelled all of this, the Russians have their fingers deep in our pies and have done for decades now. When you look at how much of London is now owned by Russian and Chinese parties, you can see the problem. Would things be different under another parliament? No.

Maybe, or maybe not.

Would we would still be inside the EU? The only reason the referendum happened was Cameron not being able to keep his party in line. Before that nobody was that bothered by the EU membership.

The only reason Boris has so much power is surprisingly Jeremy Corbin.

I wouldn't waste the time speculating given there are parallels across the globe such as the state of America right now, this has always been bubbling away under the surface. A matter of when more than if.
