Belt Up

Alex Younger's latest ruse to frighten us out of electing a Government that might compel his fellow residents of Blandings Castle and members of the Drones Club to pay some tax is to bang on about "Chinese cyberspying", a Yellow Peril that Wodehouse would have satirised to dust and ashes.

Complaining about the rise of China is the "Stop The World, I Want To Get Off" of the present age. Instead of such silliness, we need trade deals with the BRICS countries even while remaining thoroughly critical of all five of their present governments.

Within that, we need the integration into the Belt and Road Initiative of all four parts of the United Kingdom, of all nine English regions, of all of the Crown Dependencies, and of all of the British Overseas Territories. In some way, all 99 lieutenancy areas, including County Durham, need to be so integrated.

We need withdrawal from NATO, which commits us to the defence of Turkish Islamists and of Eastern European neo-Nazis while charging us two per cent of our Gross Domestic Product for the privilege.

We need bilateral peace treaties with all other European countries, including Russia. We need bilateral peace treaties with the United States and with Canada. And we need peace treaties with the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation and with the Collective Security Treaty Organisation.

Another hung Parliament is coming, and our people need to hold the balance of power in it. I will stand for this parliamentary seat of North West Durham, if I can raise the £10,000 necessary to mount a serious campaign. Please email davidaslindsay@hotmail.com. Very many thanks.
