3 Days After Remembrance Sunday

A major European country ceases to be democratic (my emphasis):
Italy Prime Minister-designate Mario Monti on Wednesday unveiled his new cabinet to deal with his country’s debt crisis.

The former EU commissioner named himself as Italy’s new economy minister.

Monti’s cabinet does not contain a single elected politician.

His ministers are drawn from the worlds of finance, academia, and law.

The 68-year-old does have the support of all major political parties.

Only the right-wing Northern League has refused to back him.

Monti must win a vote of confidence in both houses of parliament before he can officially take office.

Wearing a poppy means bugger all, the best way to honour those who gave their lives for 'their tomorrows' is to continue the everlasting fight to preserve freedom and democracy:
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." - Ronald Reagan

    I may be wrong but is this new Italian Govt. not the same as Mussolini's pre-war Govt. Corporate Fascists?

  2. Well said TBF, I bought a poppy but would not wear it until 11.11.11 I will not wear mine because the wearing of it has become PC and also a fashion statement - not for me it wont.
    I pray for the safe return of the lads and lasses in Afghanistan and even though that war is a useless forlorn conflict - I support our troops - we will require them soon enough on our streets, for the politicians have [whats new?] as usual chosen the wrong arena, it is coming to us.

    Soon enough and it is the politicians fault - these insensate turds who wear poppy - as if it means something to them.

    This political scum, are not fit to lace the boots of our forefathers who gained us our freedom - the politicians have given away our cherished birthright and flooded the nation with peoples inimical to our way and traditions. As it was a purposeful act of treachery, then so shall treat I them with the contempt.

    I hate them with a vengeance.
