'Just over 100 years ago, Britain’s empire held sway over 23 per cent of the world’s population and 24 per cent of the world’s landmass. It was the foremost global power, the largest in human history. After the Second World War, a period of decolonisation took place with the transfer of Hong Kong to China in 1997 marking for many the end of the British Empire.
Others thought that the Suez Canal crisis in 1956 was the last nail in Britain’s diplomatic coffin. Historians concluded that the crisis “signified the end of Great Britain’s role as one of the world’s major powers.” America politically and financially froze Britain out, it was an unmitigated disaster. The 1976 IMF loan crisis was another event worthy of mention in Britain’s downward trajectory.
However, Britain’s decline even from the beginning of this century has been equally as catastrophic. Foreign policy decisions from both Labour and Conservative, especially in the Mid-East has been calamitous. The loss of control of the ‘secret state’ such as MI5, MI6 and GCHQ with all of its ‘covert’ budgets, torture, rendition and extra-judicial assassinations, combined with its illegal mass surveillance architecture, is exposed to the embarrassment of an out-of-control political class. Their only response is to savagely ramp up the charges of whistleblowers to that of foreign spies and increase the use of secret courts. Political prisoners such as Assange are a stain against the rule of law and only enhance a sense of injustice.
David Cameron’s grandstanding in Tripoli was an act of gross stupidity on the international stage. He took Africa’s richest nation and then left it to fall into the hands of terrorist and thugs. It is now a failed state and boasts slave trade markets and people trafficking as its most notable export, which directly led to the migration crisis gripping Europe and a diplomatic cliff-dive for Britain.
Politically driven policy fiasco’s are so frequent, described by the government as ‘blunders,’ they are now costing the national treasury hundreds of billions. Extreme neoliberal capitalism has also taken over all common sense. One only has to look at the incomprehensibly egregious disaster that is the PFI system of funding national infrastructure that has straddled the taxpayer with. Debts of nearly £250 billion have piled up on just a few of these projects. This total waste of public money (that will fill the coffers of the banks) will last until 2050.'
