Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded June 5th, 2024

Britain’s political-military nexus has been on full display in recent weeks, as past and prospective prime ministers assail media, their sabre din adding now to the sound and fury of the country’s newly-called general election Kabuki. Former Tory bosses, Boris Johnson and David Cameron, along with unelected prime minister, Rishi Sunak are now enjoined by Labour leader, Sir Keir Starmer in doing their collective utmost to hasten nuclear winter through the fomenting of World War Next with Russia.

The former porcus amorató and current UK Foreign Secretary, Lord Cameron led the charge to Armageddon in early May, opining to the press the appropriateness of Kyiv’s use of British weaponry against Russia in any manner it sees fitting saying Ukraine, “…absolutely has the right to strike back at Russia“.

Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, better known as BoJo, in a private London club speech honouring the “heroes of the Azov Brigade” reiterated over the weekend, allowing Ukraine a free hand was, “…the single best investment we can make in the defense of the whole Euro-Atlantic area…
Not to be outdone, Labour Pretender, Sir Keir Monday insisted “security will always come first“, reassuring the electorate he was ready to push the nuclear button saying, “This is a changed Labour party and the most important thing is I voted in favour of a nuclear deterrent.”

For its part, the target intended, Russia warned again, “This is a direct escalation of tension around the Ukrainian conflict, which would potentially pose a threat to European security.

John Helmer’s a journalist and author who’s spent decades living in and reporting from Russia. He’s the principle behind the web news site, Dances with Bears, and has too been a professor of political science, sociology, and journalism and served as advisor to governments at the highest levels.
Among his many book titles are: ‘Skripal in Prison,’ ‘The Man Who Knows Too Much About Russia,’ ‘The Lie That Shot Down MH-17’, ‘SOVCOMPLOT: How Pirates Tried to Capture the Treasure of the Russian Seas, and Were Caught Out’, and his lately released autobiography, ‘Dunce Upon a Time: A Life of Mistakes’.
