The recent G7 meeting in Cornwall was to all extents and purposes a very expensive, high security, long photo opportunity yawn as far as the British working class were concerned.
Although originally intended to have representatives of major countries, the G7 now has over-representation from the undemocratic EU. As a Country, we can’t seem to shake off their constant meddling in our internal affairs. We had about 45 years in total of being under their illegal, fascist- run, austerity- driven subjugation and to continue to ‘entertain’ them in Britain is a ‘wind-up’ to those of us who have consistently campaigned to have no part in the EU ‘stitch-up’.
What obvious conclusions can we draw from the Cornwall meeting. The first is the parallel between the atmosphere polluting G7 and NATO pollution of the environment. NATO, it has been reported, has been a high polluter with its military gas guzzling tanks and military vehicles. It would seem that it wants to spread its evil influence to all parts of the globe, from China to the Arctic.
The G7 in comparison were busily polluting the atmosphere in Carbis Bay, with billowing clouds of smoke from out-of-control industrial scale beach barbeques catering for the high- powered, low- productivity personnel on display. To add to the pollution, the ‘Red Arrows’ left their trail of fumes above the Cornish skies.
These were only a small part of the planes and helicopters also involved in this ‘photo pageant’ which also saw the British Royal family popping in for more photogenic opportunities.
With the new strains of Covid emerging to large extents in the Greater Manchester area, we had the local Devon and Cornwall police complaining about the influx of over 6000 police into the Cornwall area, including many, untested and unvaccinated, from the new covid ‘hotspots.
Despite the emphasis on picturesque photo opportunities, the Cornwall reality couldn’t be totally hidden from the foreign leaders in that to make their way to venues like the Eden Project, they had to drive through areas of deprivation in one of the poorest counties in Britain.
