Tone-deaf Truss backtracks – but not far enough – on warplanes for Ukraine call

Headbangers: Liz ‘War Head’ Truss and Dominic ‘Air Head’ Raab.

Don’t get your hopes up – she hasn’t learned her lesson.

Instead of demanding that the UK send warplanes to Ukraine – thereby provoking Vladimir Putin to nuke us until we glow, Liz Truss is now suggesting that we merely send the parts.

So now she wants us to send self-assembly kit planes to the eastern Europe conflict. How is that better?

It seems War Head Liz has been reminded that Nato policy is not to provoke Putin; the United States recently vetoed a Polish plan to deliver fighter jets for that very reason.

But she – and Air Head Dominic Raab, it seems – is still calling for western nations to declare in as loud a way as possible that they are helping Ukraine.

So my question remains: what is wrong with these people?

If they want to help a beleaguered fellow nation, then they can do it in the tried and tested way – covertly. They send it by secret routes and they don’t talk about it.

Blathering loudly and continually that they are ignoring Putin’s threats and will do whatever the hell they like will only attract harm.

Perhaps that is what Truss and Raab and the rest of the Tory headbangers really want.

    Has anyone used the local elections to point out that charitable humanitarian aid is one thing, but money for military hardware is not needed from UK, as up to 40 countries are providing that and it is not aid, but sales. So why not sell 2nd hand military hardware to 3rd countries, to sell on.

    The high cost of oil and gas in UK is not down to Russia, as UK has 50 per cent of its needs from its own North Sea oilfields, and most of the rest comes from elsewhere. UK companies and foreign third nations are profiteering on us.

    That is a means to get votes away from the Tories.
