Gove Applauds The Slaughter Of World War I
Michael Gove, the moron that Cameron put in charge of education, has made an extraordinary attack on the TV programme "Blackadder Goes Forth" telling the BBC that it was a scurrilous left-wing attack on a glorious period of British history. The Battle of the Somme, which saw 60,000 British casualties on the first day of the attack, has been "distorted" according to Gove and was actually the "precursor to victory" in 1918. The fact that the idiot Generals sitting safely behind the lines ordered the attack to continue for nearly six months and eventually clocked up an astounding 1,000,000 casualties seems to mean nothing to Gove. According to him the war was "a noble cause" and that historian agree with him, apparently falling over themselves to show that the elite that contemptuously allowed such slaughter were "conscious believers in king and country, committed to defending the western liberal order." Of course Gove is a completely insane and should not be allowed anywhere near of major government ministry, but his outburst is a very revealing snapshot of the Tory mind-set. To them ordinary people really are nothing more than counters in a game that only they should be allowed to play. They were content to see millions slaughtered during World War I as they sat safely at home counting their profits and they are content to do it again as we save the banks for them and protect their money. Gove would like us all to applaud the sacrifices made during the Great War, but he and his kind made no such sacrifices themselves and have no intention of making any sacrifices now either. To Gove and his mates in the criminal organisation known as the Tory party we are simply cannon fodder and should be grateful that they have accorded us even this lowly status. Scum the Tories always have been and scum they remain.
