This Is The Fifth Generation

By spreading hysteria about Huawei, all that Jeremy Fleming is saying is that, even in its own terms, GCHQ is just not very good. Does that really never occur to him?

But as Ren Zhengfei recently pointed out, Huawei is simply too advanced for the world to do without it. This is the world now. Be on the bus, or be under it.

Similarly, in order to bring about a solution in Kashmir, then the world needs China, which is closely allied to Pakistan, and the world needs Russia, which retains an alliance with India going back to the Soviet period.

This is the world now, the world of the BRICS, the world of Huawei, and the world of the Belt and Road Initiative. 

Criticise the Chinese, or the Russian, or the Indian, or the Pakistani Government all you like, and that ought to be a very great deal. But this is the world. Be on the bus, or be under it.

Another hung Parliament is coming, and we need our people to hold the balance of power in it.

It has become a local commonplace that I am on 30-30-30 with Labour and the Conservatives here at North West Durham, so that any one of us could be the First Past the Post.

I will stand for this seat, if I can raise the £10,000 necessary to mount a serious campaign. Please email Very many thanks.


  1. George Galloway tweets:
    Well I didn't see that coming, not from
    @jeremycorbyn, he was the people's champion, the one who was meant to listen to us, he's just turned his back on everyone who voted for Brexit, that's 17.4m potential voters who will avoid @UKLabour like the plague now

    Indeed. No sincere Leave voter can ever vote Labour again after tonight.

    The realignment of British politics was always going to produce a straightforwardly anti Brexit party and a pro Brexit party.

    1. No, it wasn't. And no, it won't. Brexit has nothing to do with how people vote. We have already seen that once. Did Remain voters abandon either main party for the Lib Dems or whatever in 2017? Well, there you are, then.

      Anyone who talks about a realignment of British politics is probably very young, or else they would have heard it several times before, and certainly not very serious to anyone apart from themselves.
