If anyone is eligible for this prize it must surely be he with the forename of Christopher. For yonks, his column in the Sunday Telegraph has dissected the nonsense that politician’s emit coupled with what passes for news in the MSM.
In tomorrow’s column in the Sunday Telegraph two sentences – one a question, the other a statement – lay bare the fact that we the people of this country are lied to, misled and generally taken for idiots – which unfortunately, in respect of the latter, we appear to be.
On the subject of the same-sex marriage bill Booker asks:
“But why weren’t we told more honestly and openly why it has all happened?”
On the question of our energy policy, he makes a statement that is not just pertinent to that policy but one which is pertinent to every policy that our politicians pursue:
“We need to wake up to just how dangerous a game they are playing with our future.”
By that question and by that statement Christopher Booker has shown that the sooner the demands of the Harrogate Agenda become known, the sooner they are explained and thus become accepted, the better for this country and especially where democracy per se is concerned.
