Britain’s “kakistocracy”?

(Monday/Tuesday blog)

Britain’s “kakistocracy”?

I’d like to thank a reader for making me aware of the word “Kakistocracy”. A kakistocracy (/kækɪˈstɒkrəsi/, /kækɪsˈtɒkrəsi/) is a system of government that is run by the worst, least qualified, and/or most unscrupulous citizens.

The word was coined as early as the seventeenth century. It apparently comes from the Greek ‘kakistos’ which is the superlative of ‘kakos’ (bad).

Does kakistocracy remind you of anyone?

As Gerry Rafferty might have sung “clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am stuck in the middle without a clue. Yes, I’m stuck in the middle without a clue”.

Can our politically-correct police get any worse?

And while we’re on the subject of kakistocracy – a system of government that is run by the worst, least qualified, and/or most unscrupulous citizens – any Sunday Times readers will know that the once reliable once newspaper (which has banned me from writing comments) has been doing a big splash this weekend on the uber-politically-correct boss of the Met police – Cressida Dick.

Cressida ticks loads of diversity boxes. She is, as far as I understand, both female and a lesbian:

Unfortunately she’s not BAME nor from our favourite religion. But then Cressida’s assistant commissioner Anil Kanti “Neil” Basu does at least tick the BAME box:

So, even more diversity. And as you all know, diversity is good for you.

Sadly Anil Basu isn’t from our favouritest religion. Though he has reportedly gone on record as saying that there’s absolutely no need for people from our most admired religion to integrate or assimilate into British society:

And, if I remember correctly, Anil Basu has also claimed that the fastest growing terror threat in the UK was from right-wing groups and absolutely not from crazy Izlumists:

I believe you, Anil Basu. But there might be some cynics who think you’re talking a load of politically-correct, Izlumophiliac nonsense. Still, if you keep on spouting politically-correct, Izlumophiliac crap, maybe you’ll soon get promoted and get a few gongs just like your boss Cressida?

Here’s how Cressida’s and Anil’s police deal with an illegal Black Lives Matter protest during the Chinese plague lockdown:

Here’s how Cressida’s and Anil’s police deal with an Extinction Rebellion protest:

And here’s how they deal with an anti-lockdown protest:

Maybe it’s time to sack the (IMHO) utterly useless, politically-biased, UK-hating, progressive, globalist-pawns Cressida Dick and Anil Basu and get some real coppers running our police?

Made in China

And here to cheer us all up are two Chinese men taking a solidly-built, high-quality Made in China elevator:

The lying, corrupt, disease-spreading Chinese will apparently be building our next generation of nuclear reactors. No doubt these Made in China nuclear reactors will be just as solidly-built and high quality as the lift doors in the above video.

    At last we are seeing some credible resistance and the exposure of police action vis a vis peaceful demonstrators will have opened a few eyes previously closed.I have the greatest respect for those who are standing up to be counted,wish I could be there.What we need are demonstrations across the land as the police would be unable to cope.The disgraceful disparity in the police reaction to BLM,Climate protest and anti lockdown demonstrations is a national disgrace and can not be casually ignored by the MSM and Parliament.

    Joseph de Maistre said that every nation gets the government it deserves. We are all playing a part in the state of the world. I watched a Culture Forum video this morning talking about how docile we have become, and Hardcastle points out the treatment we now get if we protest peacefully about government policy.

    I keep trying to promote the idea that it is democracy that is the problem, but it never gets picked up or discussed anywhere. I discovered recently that Plato was concerned about it, which is where kakistocracy comes from, but democracy was different in his time.

    My belief is that the political parties are the problem. They provide a power base, which continues when parties are not in power making them ready to rise again. I take the view that we vote for a representative for our constituency. But many will say that they voted for “x” to be prime minister. We do not have a vote for the PM, or even a political party. Our MPs should represent us, but they sell their soul to a political party. It is time to abolish the parties and have independent MPs. I’m not sure how they would form a government but let them resolve it.

    I also think that nobody should be elected unless they have 50% of the electorate voting for them. The candidates would have to convince the constituency that they were the best for the job, and we would avoid extreme policies. It is better than a PR system. There should also be a limit on the years they can serve.

    The power of the government should be severely limited so that we have the freedom to be responsible for ourselves. If we make mistakes it will be our fault and not a mistake being forced on us by an incompetent government.

    It is time MPs realised we do not elect them to parade around on the world stage, we elect them to resolve local problems and provide stability. The MPs along with the institutions that support them have destroyed British culture and everything that gave us stability in the past, and that was centred on family life. Parents no longer care for their children because work is more important. Children no longer care for their aging parents for several reason, and one of the main reasons is the NHS creates conditions and misery at the end of our life that cannot be cared for by families. The traditional concept of marriage has been destroyed and that is down to the failure of the Christian Church. The state has grown in size, replacing family care by welfare. I am also of the opinion that TV, radio, the internet, and the media results in a constant feed of utter drivel. Nobody thinks anymore, they just listen and absorb, and the education system reinforces it all.

    Thomas Sowell has said that the only way to stop barbarianism taking over is to use force. Discussion is certainly having no impact on governments and I doubt there is any enthusiasm for force. It will just have to play out whilst we watch the horrors unfolding.

  • For a bit of a laugh, I tried searching for “Cressida Dick nude” in the Bing search engine (probably the best one for nudes and faked nudes) and then looking under Images. You have to turn the Safe Search setting to Off or you only get PC images.

    Unfortunately, not even any lesbians wanted to make some faked nudes of Dick, but the search engine picked up on the word dick instead.

    So, to cheer myself up, I decided to see if there were any nude images of another lesbian, Samantha Fox, and I was not disappointed.

    Then it occurred to me that Carrie might have put some faked nudes up of Boris, but unfortunately not. There is only one fake of him in his underpants swinging on a wrecking ball Tarzan-like.

    Good one!

    Apparently there is a bot called the DeepNude AI that strips images of women of their clothes and inserts what it thinks their naked body parts should look like.

    So, if anyone is desperate enough to want to see some fake nudes of Dick that’s the tool for you. The bot might be challenged to get her out of her uniform and might be put off by all of her Muttley-type medals.

    Here is an article on it:

    The AI Telegram bot that abused women is still out of control –

    A Thorpe – I have long been of the opinion that political parties, the so-called ‘Upper House’, and elections should all be abolished.
    Ordinary citizens from all walks of life should be obliged to serve terms as both MPs and local councillors on a similar basis to the obligation which we already have to perform jury service when so summoned.
    Truly contentious issues of government policy should be settled by constitutionally binding public referenda.
    Any attempt to form a political party should result in prosecution and a lengthy jail term.

    However the chances of the pigs in Westminster ever voting to forswear their stint at the trough are, unfortunately, non-existent.

    “Kak” is the Afrikaans word for the 4-letter English word which starts with “sh” and ends with “t”. Oh Yes, there is an “i” to go in there somewhere.

    And do I not remember “Kaka” a word when I was a wee youngster too ?

    “Kakisocracy – so apt.

  • Jeffrey Palmer

    ern – The very reason why I always refer to Johnson’s so-called ‘Health Secretary’ as Hott Mancack. To me, it’s a name that sums up both that gentleman’s attributes and his usefulness.

  • A Thorpe

    When I first saw kakistocracy I thought it was invented along the lines suggested by ern. I found another word yesterday – Idiocracy, also in the dictionary. It can apply to the leaders or the group of people bring controlled. Even more relevant.

    The High Court has now allowed 15 year olds to have puberty blockers if they understand the implications. First brainwash them, then claim they understand. What next?

  • ern

    Nice one Jeffrey Palmer, but IMO, it’s just a wee bit of a stretch to leap from “Hott Mancack” to “gentleman”, apt tho’ it is, Non ?

    A Thorpe, in fact “Kak !!!!!” – ”Ag, Kak Man” is used frequently by speakers of all South African languages, of which no less than 11 (not a misprint) are officially recognised by the democratic and freedom-loving SA government.

    If challenged with “Don’t use bad language like that” some are inclined to explain “But I said ‘Kaf’”. This alternative homonym-type word has the meanings of “baloney; bilge; bosh; bunk; chaff; eyewash; tripe; footle; froth; glume; kibosh; moonshine; nonsense; pooh; poppycock; punk; rigmarole; rot; tommy‐rot; apple‐pie sauce!; fiddle!; rats! “, so they often get away with it.
    A word of caution : It is vital to remember NEVER to use the six-letter word ending in “fir” and preceded by the 3-letter word which started this conversation. It is a heinous word, probably the worst word to be used to, at or just within earshot of a person who might have skin of a different hue to yours.
    An incurable pox on the wretched person who first thought of it.
