Thanks for sharing that. :up:

Potemkin wrote:Kadar, for all his personal deficiencies, turned out to be one of the greatest leaders Hungary has ever had.

He probably was, although I don't share his cult. He probably was one of the greatest leaders in the Soviet Bloc too.

Feel free to explain how a coup "fitting Britain" would look like.

I guess it would look like a somewhat extraordinary social, economic, financial and political crisis in a liberal parliamentary democracy resulting in the prime minister's dismissal that wouldn't even appear to be a coup. However, I intend to watch the miniseries recommended by Potemkin, so I can get some real clue perhaps. ;)

That wouldn't be a coup, it would be a consequence of shitty economic policies. Though there's nothing crazy about Corbyn's economic policies as far as I can tell. In contrast, Allende's policies (or rather those of Pedro Vuskovic), were batshit insane and the catastrophic outcome predictable.

Even more predictable than your response? ;)

It would be a coup because the crisis would be a result of a conspiracy to overthrow the Corbyn cabinet way before it could do anything substantial. In my opinion the project would practically start as soon as he took office or even before. :lol:

Hehe, 80s tv series seems to be all the rage right now. The mindset of 30 years ago, or even further back, 30s and 40s where some Brexiteers are concerned ;) :) whom are both Anglais and of other nations in da 'union' that Boris is a minister of.

Whilst we're going retro, let's reflect on historical Brexit and remain in pictures complete with crude 70's sexism:

:lol: It makes me laugh to see radical leftists, probably swappies trying to sell the weekly wanker, marching behind thatcher. I guess the same is true with lefty Brexitearers though. :D Guileless naivety taken to new heights.. delayed development indeed.

He'll have to phone Swinson instead. :lol:

Your one liners and monosyllabic ones posts have plenty of substance, a different kind though. :)

It seems that there is more 'bust' than 'europe' in one of the photo's call it 'sexist' today, but, back then, it was considered 'normal', how times change.

Thatcher was to turn against europe, even though she was previously pro-europe, she weighed in against John MAJOR for signing the Maastricht Treaty, for which she claimed he had,"put his head in the fire".

She herself had signed the 'Single European Act', for which she had believed beforehand, that the European Commission would honour it's 'Limited Majority Voting' provisions.That's the reason she condemned MAJOR, who, himself, also against Thatchers opinion, that a referendum was needed on europe over the direction it was taking, towards, being a different animal to what it had hitherto been.

Her attitude to the euro issue, between parliament vs a referendum was expressed thus," 'To say that our power comes only from the ballot box and then we ignore such a big constitutional change seems to me to be utterly wrong,' she said.
There is only one way to elevate a single issue and give it the importance which this one deserves and that is to have a specific referendum."
Understandably, she thoroughly disliked John MAJOR,maybe it was because he was a europhile, or the fact that he liked a 'bit of CURRIE' now & again. :lol: :lol: :lol:

^ You could point out David Stirling and his eld gents group in the 70s, the army gens who threatened to usurp power under Corbyn, MI5 and 6 leaders current and ex ominously saying Corb was a sec threat, you could point out the Tories hinting that Corbyn "must be stopped by any means" directly accusing him of being an accessory to terrorism.

Etc.

Idk how people from outside Britain know more about this country than my fellow shitizens.. :lol:

I'm not aware of such particularities, I've been following British politics closely since the beginning of Brexshit only, but I'm aware of the big picture I guess.
