There’s been a lot of “Lisa Lefties” waxing lyrical about lying and if our government has the moral fibre of a fresh deer turd. So let me tell you a little story about lying….
In 1943 the boffins of the UKs war machine were in a pickle. Yes we’d won the “Battle of Britain” (the precursor to Brexit) Flight Commander Farage had seen off the Hun in our skies and him and his pilot chums were off round Kent getting a feel for some nylon clad totty. But what was the next step?
The problem was that Barry Bosch had sympathetic ears in the UK, with it being a well known fact that the Labour Party were open supporters of the German war effort. So great were these sympathetic ears that the armed forces plans were often thrown into disarray. Intelligence leaks such as this led to the sinking of the Hood and the fall of Jersey.
So it was clear the “truth” was a national security threat and it had to be controlled. No point in telling people like Corbyn about tank manoeuvres against Crete when he’ll immediately pass on the information to his paymasters in Prague is there? No. So our great leaders have to be economical with the truth to protect the country
Disinformation campaigns are run at full pelt during times of war and this, my fellow patriots, is war. War on statues. War on Covid. War on Brexit. Its war. Its why I have my kids (in the court mandated one hour a month I have them) patrolling the trench network I’ve developed in my front garden. Yes we’ve had a few minor incidents with landmines but that’s what happens when you don’t pay attention during the mine sweeping training I arranged for you in leiu of school.
My point being is that the truth is a weapon. You wouldn’t let maddened Japanese Zero pilots have access to firearms would you? Course not.
Which is exactly why our crack commando cabinet unit has to be economical with the truth
