The United Nations was well intentioned, but the fact is it has failed to deliver peace to the world – an objective which should be easy given there are only 7 billion people in the world and some do not even particularly have competing interests.
At its burdensome headquarters in New York, the UN is a burocrat’s dream. Its complex voting system means nothing ever gets agreed anyway. It is undemocratic, with five countries favoured over all others based solely on their status in 1945, and with decisions taken by administrators and other second-class diplomats not good enough to get a real embassy.
You and I pay into this failed organisation and frankly I am sick of it. The UK should take its own decisions on its security and military operations – who needs cooperation with bigger countries, shared intelligence and new emerging technology anyway? Indeed, the UK would be free to build new armed alliances with other countries which are free from the shackles of the UN – emerging powers like Abkhazia, Somaliland and Northern Cyprus.
Besides, it’s NATO which keeps us safe, not the UN.
It’s time to stop living in the real world and pretend nothing that anyone else does affects us – “taking back control” as some would call it. Let’s get out of this failed, unaccountable, unelected bureaucracy. Let’s leave the UN.
