Why Boris? Why Farage,
This is an exchange with a comitted Marxist freind regarding this very question.
My Marxist Freind.
”The only option, but mobilise, educate fight, once elected the Clinton administration should be made responsible to the people, but they have to work for the changes needed.”
I understand the basis of this argument and yet I am not convinced that Clinton respond to it any more than Trump would. It is arguable that Trump would be more responsive to a challenge to the status quo than Clinton. As CLinton is the Establishment pick so clearly I personally think that Trump is the better bet particularly with the Clinton record of Hawkish Zionism.http://www.globalresearch.ca/war-between-us-and…/5551581
My Marxist freind.
I personally cannot take the baggage that comes with Trump’s challenge to the status quo, especially the ramped up racism. I detest Clinton and her kind. But until the population of the US mobilises nothing will change. Read Jack Barnes on the lesser of two evils, there isn’t one, only when all the american working and middle class unite and fight back will there be change. Until then we have small pickings of pragmatism.
”The personal shortcomings of both of these deeply flawed candidates is not in question what is in question is how the reform of the deeply flawed system of Political Economy in the Untied States can be reformed and the infection that it has communicated to the rest of the world can be treated.´I see no evidence at all that Clinton and the Two Party monoply on power will be reformed with her at the Titualr healm? We already had the false Dawn of Obama, it is to me breath taking that the same false dawn is being re enacted with Clinton , this time its Female Gender and not Skin Colour we are supose to see as progress. I just do not buy it.”
”The point isn´t whether trump would stand in their way it is whether the leadership from that symbolic position of president ,would acknowledge a manifesto from the people along the lines of Sanders suggestion or whether it would be crushed or otherwise side lined. I suspect in Clintons case Crushing and sidelining in equal measure.
“019 is a Replay of 2016 and again with Brexit its success depends on Who wins the Whitehouse in 2020, The Jury for me is back out for me on President Trump, and the same thing applies for Boris is he a RUles Based international order Stooge? Hunt isn’t and Neither as yet is Corbyn, either is better than Hunt.

That closing window (to resist Stalinism) has been moving steadily and very slowly for a century. Even Margaret Thatcher couldn’t recognise the real intent behind the Perestroika deception
What follows is akin to when the Main Character Winston in 1984 starts reading a copy of
The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism,
MR FARAGE REPLIED: “I WOULD DO A DEAL WITH THE DEVIL TO GET A PROPER BREXIT.” THE SECRET CITY. THE THREE CITY STATES.PROCRUSTEAN ELEPHANT GRAPH FITTING. ETC AND SO ON AND SO FORTH.
The world Doged a Bullet when the US people in their wisdom went for Trump instead of Hilary.
At the Time I wrote this on Why Trump-
‘’Americans are being offered, by this nation’s aristocracy, a choice between a marginally competent and deeply evil psychopath Hillary Clinton, versus an incompetent but far less evil psychopath Donald Trump, and the nation’s press are reporting instead a choice between two candidates of whom one (the actually evil Clinton) is presented as being far preferable to the other (the actually incompetent Trump), and possibly as being someone who might improve this nation if not the world. Virtually none of America’s Establishment is willing to report the truth: that the nation’s rotting will get worse under either person as President, but that only under Trump might this nation (and the world) stand a reasonable likelihood of surviving at all (i.e., nuclear war with Russia being averted).’’http://www.globalresearch.ca/whether-to-go-to-war…/5551589
WHy Bojo/ Why Farage is the same essential question for the same reasons. We must hope that Boris too will hear Echos Call.
Trump being from a privelidged background will be more likely to be disabused of the idea that the American Dream is one where each and every American can be a Billionaire. Mr Trump will never reject the lime light I am sure, He may though hear the echo of the American people who have as in the legend been wandering lonely glens unloved by their leaders , indeed feared by them. Perhaps unlike in Ovids tale our Narcissis Trump will return the peoples Love.
OVID, METAMORPOSES BK III:359-401 HOW JUNO ALTERED ECHO’S SPEECH
‘Scorned, she wanders in the woods and hides her face in shame among the leaves, and from that time on lives in lonely caves. But still her love endures, increased by the sadness of rejection. Her sleepless thoughts waste her sad form, and her body’s strength vanishes into the air. Only her bones and the sound of her voice are left. Her voice remains, her bones, they say, were changed to shapes of stone. She hides in the woods, no longer to be seen on the hills, but to be heard by everyone. It is sound that lives in her.”
This is a Longish Post as I am trying to save myself some time, as I wanted to make this point regarding Boris and the same point which @advhtg
