The dictator’s speech

I think that the Boris speech at the Tory Party Conference was just an empty shell of promises, which were not even the most effective remedies for the ailments that society suffers from.

There is the promise to spend Billions on new hospitals. A real populist measure, that does not expect people to live more healthily but merely offers to treat their illnesses.

The promise of a higher living wage. This measure will drive up food prices even more and make it impossible for smaller businesses to continue trading.

The promise of a new EU Brexit agreement. It has already been rejected by the EU.

I must admit, I would be aroused by Boris’s speech had I been in the audience. But then if you watch the speeches of other dictators, who electrify large audiences, you will see that it is simply an emotional effect and psychological trick that makes people happy to listen to some speakers.

The reality is a different matter.
