F1 Boss Bernie Ecclestone: "Vlad Putin should be Running Europe"
And Trump would make a fantastic president.


The candid comments from 85-year-old Mr. Ecclestone, chief executive of the Formula One Group, came during a staged conversation with WPP Chief Executive, Sir Martin Sorrell, held in front of a few hundred advertising executives at Advertising Week Europe in London.

Having declared that “Europe has become less important, full stop,” he responded to Sir Martin’s question regarding his admiration for Vladimir Putin saying: “He should be running Europe.”

Sir Martin asked whether that meant Mr. Putin should be governing from Brussels, Mr. Ecclestone replied:

“No, we should get rid of Brussels and he should just be in charge.”

Explaining his admiration for the Russian leader, Mr. Ecclestone said: “He does what he says he’s gonna do, he gets the job done.”

Mr. Putin is not the only political strongman admired by Mr. Ecclestone, he also sees a kindred spirit in Donald Trump and rated him as a future U.S. president, saying:

“I think he’d be fantastic. I’m sure he’s much more flexible than most of them. If he’s made a mistake, he’s more likely to say: ‘It was a good idea at the time.’”

The successful super rich -- the ones that actually create wealth, not the parasitic class -- know the deal.

Good stuff.

"I'd take a bullet for Putin; should be dictator of Europe"


In a move seemingly designed to wind up everybody west of Moscow, F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone has denounced the Skirpal poisoning as “fake news” and said he’d take a bullet for “good guy” Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In a freewheeling interview with the Times, the 88-year-old billionaire declared that Putin was “too busy” to have ordered the poisoning of double agent Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury last March, branding reports of Russian involvement “fake news.”

From there, Ecclestone further professed his admiration for the Russian leader. “If someone had a machine gun and was prepared to shoot Putin, I would stand in front of him,” Ecclestone said. “Because he’s a good guy. He’s never done anything that isn’t doing good things for people.”

He said: "I would like him running Europe. We haven’t got anybody, so it couldn’t be any worse. He does what he says he is going to do. I am not a supporter of democracy. You need a dictator. In a democracy, it gets watered down.”

Democracy was PROMOTED by a guy named Pletho

[Image: Benozzo_Gozzoli%2C_Pletone%2C_Cappella_dei_Magi.jpg]

"He re-introduced Plato's ideas to Western Europe during the 1438–1439 Council of Florence"

That is an interesting way to say he was one of the early proponents of the benefits of democracy. Oh, and turns out he was financed by one of the billionaires (equivalent) of the day, Cosimo Medici.

[Image: Cosimo_di_Medici_%28Bronzino%29.jpg]

Why would a wealthy (non-noble) ruler like Medici want to spread an idea like democracy? Did he think he would be able to... I don't know, buy influence? Buy votes?

That is my opinion, at the moment, that democracy is too easily subverted by money powers. Look at the US election. How much does it cost to run for President?
