Dr Alf is right to point out Britain’s increasing irrelevance in the world following the cancellation of Boris Johnson’s trip to Russia, assuming it was cancelled on Mrs May’s orders as a nod towards pleasing Donald Trump.
The reality is that Trump, Putin, Xi Jin Ping ,and Turkey, between them, have the ability to do a deal in a darkened room, solve the Syrian crisis, take Assad into exile, put in an acceptable replacement and deal with ISIS on the battlefield. The UN and the UN Security Council are probably now part of the problem.
Our (UK) influence should be focussed on Saudi Arabia and developing global trade, not pretending that we are a “Great Power” punching above our weight.
Being part of a bankrupt EU, which is going to split into two anyway, will not help us only selling our way out of trouble and improving the productivity of our lazy and unproductive citizens will do that.
Johnson, Davis and Fox seem too corpulent ,too laid back, and too devoid of strategy to even comprehend that and as we saw with the truculent father who lost his case when he took his daughter to Florida in term time, the public do not comprehend just how behind and uncompetitive our children and young people are in the global jobs stakes.
Syria has to be addressed effectively, Iran has to be contained and Saudi Arabia, the champion of Wahhabism and unwarranted mosque building, also has to be dealt with; otherwise, its risk-profiling World War III.
