We find ourselves living in a century where the political classes of the Western World have been taken over by the incapable and democracy has now become more of a matter of selecting the lesser of the evils. No wonder the Russians and the Chinese did not bother to interfere in the 2020 US Presidential election as neither candidate presented any real threat to them. The Chinese can continue on their way to global economic domination through their continued support of dubious regimes across the developing world in exchange for plundering their industrial commodities. Sleepy Joe got inaugurated as the 46th President and promised that he would govern not just for those that voted for him but all Americans. That does not fit very well with the available evidence of the actions of the Democrats in the last year. During the campaign, populist Biden happily agreed that male criminals who identified as female should go to women’s prisons. Nothing like pandering to the woke virtual signalling minority vote. Is the Vice President, quite possibly in line to be the first female President, a different woman to the one that advocated no action against BLM anarchists as they rioted in cities across America last summer? I am not familiar with the part of the Constitution that says it is alright to rip down statues, vandalise property and try to rewrite history; but she used to be a law maker in California so she must know better. Biden claims that he wants to heal a divided society and bring America back together again. But that does not seem to tally with his economic plans to provide stimulus to “Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American-owned businesses, women-owned businesses”. He seems to have forgotten that he – and much of the electorate, especially the Republican electorate – are stale, pale and male. It did win him crucial votes in Georgia though. On this side of The Pond, failed Prime Minister Theresa May took to the Daily Mail to criticise her successor. She tried to go back on her Party’s word to implement the result of the EU Referendum whilst her successor went to the electorate, received a clear mandate to “Get Brexit Done” and completed the task. May was full of praise for the incoming US President but he will be no more unifying that his predecessor as he fawns to the militant identity politics enveloping the West. May is clearly going to be the Conservatives’ female Ted Heath, bitter and moralising from the backbenches as someone she sees as an inferior Prime Minister has delivered on a commitment that she tried to obfuscate. Once the plague has subsided, one trick pony Boris will probably be joining her when one of the incapables knives him in the back.
