Here’s an indicator of establishment double-talk that results in voter doublethink.

Right now we have a government that has reneged on its pledge to leave the EU on the 29th March, that no deal is better than a bad deal and that there would be no customs union but is now engaged in talks with the EU and the Labour Party to break just about all its pledges and manifesto promises.
Now, a while ago I signed up to a petition to change the general election voting system to one proportional representation (PR).
That petition has now just gone over the 50,000 signature milestone.
The government has responded that it will not be changing the election system for several reasons. I will leave out the bit in the response that talks about why the government thinks that First Past the Post (FPTP) is the best electoral thing since sliced bread and direct your attention to the first and last paragraphs. Here we go with the first paragraph:
“In line with the result of the Parliamentary Voting System referendum in 2011, the Government will not change the current First Past the Post voting system for elections to the House of Commons.”
And now for the third paragraph:
“In addition, it is worth noting that the Government’s manifesto committed, to keep the First Past the Post system for elections to the House of Commons, in line with the result of the Parliamentary Voting System referendum in 2011, in which the overwhelming majority voted to retain the current system. The Government does not, therefore, have plans to change the voting system at the present time.”
So, the government response to the petition calling for PR can be dismissed with talk of an eight year old referendum and promises made in their last 2017 election manifesto.
But statute law that says the UK will leave the EU on the 29th March in accordance with the largest exercise in democracy ever seen in the UK – the 2016 EU referendum – as well as recent 2017 manifesto promises from the two main parties for an election where well over 80% of the electorate voted for a party that promised to respect the will of the people as shown by that referendum result, can all just be ignored and even fought against tooth and nail by the government and the establishment.
What is a good promise for one must surely be a good promise for the other.
The establishment must believe that it has people in the UK so conditioned, that it can issue statements like this with impunity.
As people say, the book ‘1984’ by George Orwell was a warning, but some are using it as an instruction manual.
