Dear Orkney News,
The 3rd of November 2021 may well be remembered as the day the UK lost its last vestiges of democracy and was revealed as a fully functional Kleptocracy.
MPs voting to scrap the standards committee and its work, in order to shield Owen Patterson, is an act worthy of all the “Banana Republics” which we have always felt ourselves superior to.
“Remember, remember the 3rd of November, self interest stands to the fore…..” How Guido Fawkes would have laughed.
Yours, Jon Southerington, Orkney
