It's barely a fortnight since the British establishment paid its annual lip service to the country’s war veterans.
Yet already the very same folk of wealth and influence are ganging up to trample all over the views of those who, out of naivety as well as loyalty, served their interests in two horrendous world wars.
Allow me to take you back to the Westminster memorial. Among those laying the first wreaths were Prime Minister Theresa May, who has been stirring up conflict with Russia in recent months, and Prince Charles, who helps foster our links with the murderous Saudis. There was even the sickening sight of modern day war criminal Tony Blair not far behind them.
Way back in the queue – as always – came the men and women who really mattered, those who actually fought in the conflicts.
And, yes, the politicians and their masters continue to lead the way in our current political conflict with Europe, with the people coming a far distant second.
It’s hypercritical, in my view, to lavish praise on folk with one hand and act as if their own opinions don’t matter with the other.
For the very same veterans are among the group who voted most strongly to leave the European Union.
Taking on board the fact that anyone who served in the Second World War must be in the older bracket, a significant 62 per cent of males over 65 and 66 per cent of women in the same age group voted for independence.
You may remember the vitriol being spread almost immediately over how old folk, who will soon be dead and buried, had apparently ruined the futures of younger people.
I had a very small indication of what was going on. As part of my work, I carried out a survey on behalf of the European Commission. The all-important question of ‘do you see Britain’s future inside or outside the European Union?’ was almost always answered very firmly ‘outside’ by older respondents.
In my view, these weren’t people being unduly influenced by what was a very poor and destructive campaign on both sides.
They just had a gut feeling that something wasn’t right. Perhaps even that what had been fought for in the world wars was now being snatched away from them.
But the betrayal of war veterans is far worse than merely attempts to block Brexit.
We are now being told officially – although some have known it from before the European Union begun – that there are active plans for a European Union army.
Please note that means one army with EU on their uniforms, not a European-wide army to complement our own armed forces.
What do you suppose our war veterans make of that?
Many, of course, are still totally in the dark. They probably still haven’t taken on board that this is far more than a distant concept, it’s agreed and signed up to by the United Kingdom and our 27 fellow European Union countries.
Hold on a minute: these men and women were told they were fighting for our ‘freedom’, now that is about to be lost forever without a bullet being fired? You’ve got it!
Not all war veterans see it this way, of course. There are veterans’ groups who are stridently in favour of the European Union and may even swallow the idea of an EU army.
But, once again, I am convinced that the will of the majority is being tossed aside as irrelevant because it doesn’t fit in with the agenda of those first wreath layers.
This however is nothing new.
Ordinary people have always been ‘played’ by the establishment when it comes to war.
It’s far too vast a subject to go into detail about here but what was really going on behind the scenes with world leaders prior to the two major conflicts and what was told to those who lost their lives, were severely injured or have the mental traumas of warfare are two very different things.
I’ve no doubt whatsoever that the vast majority of our troops went into battle – and still do – blindly believing that The Crown is worth defending and that there is a defined enemy.
Yet there is evidence of bankers, politicians and Royalty, supporting both sides because their agenda was far different.
War to them was and is a business – the most lucrative one at that.
They were more than content to oversee a reduction in the world population whilst they made their cash and power was put in fewer and fewer hands when the fighting stopped.
There lies the irony and why I described the establishment’s tribute to our veterans as ‘lip service. I was being generous. It’s sickening, hypercritical, even diabolical.
Those brave veterans mistakenly believe the first wreath layers are on their side. They are not. Never have been.
Instead they were used as pawns in a far bigger game – that of world domination.
Bankers, politicians and those above them in the pecking order set a false narrative to persuade ordinary people to fight – then count their rewards as blood is spilled.
And if ordinary people’s lives meant nothing to them then, why should we be surprised they mean nothing today?
Veterans are on the streets, veterans are penniless, others are treated as nobodies in ‘care’ homes.
And now they are past their sell by date, their wisdom and experience is dismissed as the onset of dementia.
One day they will ‘wake up’ and see who their true enemy was all along – those at the front of the queue laying wreaths in their honour.
