Hung Parliament on the Horizon?

“Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?”

17,410,742 betrayed British voters agree with GK Chesterton!

“The men whom the people ought to choose to represent them are too busy to take the jobs. But the politician is waiting for it. He’s the pestilence of modern times. What we should try to do is make politics as local as possible. Keep the politicians near enough to kick them. The villagers who met under the village tree could also hang their politicians to the tree. It’s terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hung today.”

Smart gadgets, smart Antichrist

In a recent television interview Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill warned that the widespread use of electronic gadgets provides the possibility for “universal control over humanity”. The “devil acts very wisely” in offering people such toys, he said.

That means that the structure itself poses a danger. There shouldn’t be a single centre if we don’t want to bring on the apocalypse.”

The Orthodox patriarch advised people should be careful not to “become slaves to what’s in your hands”.

“You should remain free inside and not fall under any addiction, not to alcohol, not to drugs, not to electronic gadgets.”
