Welcome to the world where facts count for little.
- Two plastered staffers enter Parliament House, have sex – one says non-consensually – in the Minister of Defence’s office; the security staff freeze, and instead of them both being summarily sacked, the Minister of Defence has a nervous breakdown and media elites blame the Prime Minister.
- The Attorney General is accused of committing a barely conceivable rape 30 years ago by a mentally disturbed woman, who subsequently suicides. The femocracy is enraged and the Minister is demoted.
- The nation’s’ leading churchman is wrongly convicted by an Appeals Court of sexual molestation under impossible circumstances and the judges concerned face no punishment.
- A conservative female MP is subjected to vicious harassment and the sisterhood looks the other way
A 200 year march of Government – something the fathers of modern Constitutions sought to prevent by reining-in populist democracy – is reaching new heights. Governments and the judiciary have become activists even beyond economic and environmental issues. They are restoring – egged on by a partisan media – the oversight over morals and reinventing witchcraft.
I have a piece in The Spectator that addresses this.
