Brexit Negotiations Begin

So we’ve had the General Election, Labour didn’t win a majority but it won a convincing enough gain to keep the Tories nervously looking over their shoulders, and so they should. Having gone to the country asking for an endorsement of her vision of Brexit the country decided it wasn’t interested in Theresa May’s vision of what Britain would look like under a Tory-led exit from Europe that would, in a short space of time, strip every piece of legislation, every hard won right that ordinary people depend on in their daily lives and reduce this country to a third world hell hole run by amateurs, crooks, thieves and gangsters who just happen to be sitting in the House of Commons.

The amateurs have already started negotiating in Brussels for the divorce papers and, despite bragging that the UK had the upper hand and would “show this lot in Brussels that they couldn’t mess with us”, capitulated at the first bit of negotiation. Theresa May went to Brussels yesterday to discuss the rights of EU citizens as well as UK citizens in Europe and offered a mealy mouthed arrangement that could so easily be reneged upon by the UK, and in fact would be.

To be perfectly frank I just wish Theresa May would just go and take the rest of the Tories with her. She and her band of carpet baggers are embarrassing the UK with their duplicitous attempt at extricating us from the EU. They give us platitudes and sound bites and expect us to be satisfied with this. I’m glad those in Brussels are demanding more meat on the bones, so to speak, because I really don’t think the Tories have the capability to negotiate properly. They don’t possess the intelligence to do this, they don’t possess the finesse to be able to put serious proposals before far more experienced negotiators and you can see exactly what the Tories are up to.

These are public school educated children who have been told from a young age that the world owes them and all they have to do is make demands, stamp their feet
and people will happily give them whatever they want. Welcome to the real world of the 21st Century, it doesn’t work like that. It shows them up for what they really are,
amateurs, real amateurs. Rich people who buy their way into politics (more and more like the USA these days) play god with peoples lives and have no skill sets, have never done anything other than politics and no idea how the world really works.

Theresa May has already shown she is happy to do deals with the most corrupt regimes in the world for money, she is also prepared to do deals with bigots such as
the DUP. However, in the latter case they may just find a set of soul mates as the Tories are also small minded bigots, which is how we’ve got into the mess we’re in today. I think its a good juncture to pause and reflect on where we are today and where we want to be in the future. David Cameron promised an In/out referendum because he was scared that UKIP would divide voter support and the Labour party would get in. He also did it to mask the divisions that have been in the Tory party for decades. Cameron lost, could face up to the fact that he’d have to sort the mess out, so capitulated. Enter Theresa May who is a lightweight and a small minded bigot of outstanding proportions who wriggles and squirms her way around, couldn’t commit to any detail and then as soon as she comes up with a detail it slips away never to be seen again. She accuses Nicola Sturgeon of wanting an independent Scotland only to give it over to the EU to rule, but May wants to do the same with the UK, get us out of the EU and give us over to the USA. As a matter of observation, looking at the utter mess the USA is in I would rather remain in the EU. The EU isn’t perfect and certainly the drive for “more Europe” is insane and should be curtailed as it really is in danger of collapsing in on itself under the weight of regulation and “togetherness”.  I’m happy for there to be another General Election, in fact let’s have one every month until we get a Labour government in. At least that way we will have grown ups who can negotiate properly and will put the welfare of ordinary people before the welfare of the rich.

Post British General Election 2017

The General Election 2017 Part 1 is over and its a hung parliament. I haven’t changed my mind about Theresa May, in fact she has diminished in my estimation further than she was at the beginning. The Tories have shown themselves to be the utter sleazebags and used car salesmen they’ve always been. They may have better accents than the rest of us, but they are the absolute dregs of what passes for human beings. I feel unclean even thinking about them.

The best thing about this election has been watching Jeremy Corbyn grow in stature and confidence as the election campaign went on. I admit I’ve had doubts in the past as to whether his style would bear any real substance but no, he’s proved me wrong and I like what I see. I just hope the real Labour party can hold it together long enough for when the next election is called, which won’t be long now, and people realise that it’s not just Theresa May who can’t deliver, but the whole Tory Party machine just hasn’t got what it takes without dragging everyone down to their level of incompetence.

The media have also been very even handed in handling their questions and haven’t allowed either party to get away with easy questions. It was refreshing to see them getting people to question MPs rather than just presenters. My money is on another general election being called in October/November. The present lot of Tories who’ve kept their jobs for now haven’t got the necessary negotiating skills to ensure we leave with any goodwill from Europe, which will be needed to negotiate any trade deals that may need to be agreed. They come from privileged backgrounds and as a result feel the world owes them. It doesn’t. This is a very interesting time to be alive. We need not just a change of faces at the top, we need a change in the way of working that benefits as many people as possible because we’re the ones who make things happen. Rich people are only interested in filling their pockets with our hard earned money.

I’ve always said there is a reason why politicians want us all to work really hard, it so we won’t notice they’re picking our pockets while we do so.

New World Order, What Does it Mean?

European Commission, General Election

In the past few years there have been a great many conspiracy theories as to the nature of the New World Order, in other worlds the likely scenarios that the shape of the world would look like. Some of these have been amusing, many have been based on fear, usually apocalyptic visions of people being ground down to no more than mere worker ants with no rights to life of any kind outside of factory/shop/office. With the French elections out of the way and Donald Trump’s first visit as POTUS there seems to be a way of ascertaining what this New World Order will look like and it’s interesting.

Firstly the meeting of the G7 ended with Trump refusing to endorse the climate agreement and criticising the EU over military spending. This has led Angela Merkel to conclude that EU countries “can no longer rely on the support of others” and, together with the newly elected Mackron, will look to “take our fate into our own hands as Europeans”. This inevitably means that the European project will gather at a faster pace, especially now that the UK has served divorce papers to be severed from the EU. This was especially telling as Merkel said “…. I can only say that we Europeans must really take our fate into our own hands – of course in friendship with the United States of America, in friendship with Great Britain and as good neighbours wherever that is possible also with other countries, even with Russia.”

It seems as though all those years ago when Charles de Gaulle said of the UK that it was no more than a vassal state of the USA and that by letting the UK into the EU it would inevitably let the USA in as well. This has been very evident in the past 8 years or so in how the US encouraged Ukraine to annexe itself from Russia into, what is now a hinterland of nowhere. By imposing sanctions on Russia and refusing to rescind them, despite the fact it is not Russia who is showing aggression but Ukraine, encouraged by the USA, this has led to the EU economy stagnating through lack of trade, has led to millions of people being made unemployed,
even homeless.

This, together with the unending laws that keep coming from Brussels which led to mismanagement of the UK by its successive governments led to the inevitable vote to divorce from the EU last year which has resulted in the UK government aligning itself every more quickly with distasteful regimes such as selling military equipment to Saudi Arabia and chasing the USA for a trade agreement like a love lorn girl. Thankfully a dose of reality is being put in place very quickly.

The UK has been informed that the USA isn’t really interested in trade deals, as we don’t make anything anymore, certainly nothing of any value that can be plundered. The UK will have to understand that aligning itself to the USA which is a dying entity will do more harm than good to us and our standing in the world. Yes, we can revive relations with New Zealand and Australia which will be good for all concerned, but we will lose a great deal more than just simply trading relations.

The EU will revive relations with Russia and China which will help EU economies greatly, particularly as the new Silk Road project or One Belt, One Road initiative and one that the UK will greatly regret in not joining for many years. It seems as though the EU will do very well without us, although initially it may falter through lack of cash injection through UK payments into EU coffers. I almost get the feeling the EU has been held back by the UK, but the UK has been pulled forward by the EU and without that input, socially the UK will stagnate.

I realise this is a departure from my stance last year when, in the lead up to the EU Referendum I was convinced the right thing to do was to leave. However in recent weeks I have come to the conclusion that the whole EU Referendum was a huge hoax played on the British people and the government are taking the British people for fools. The EU Referendum was not about all the things the politicians promised us (which were 80%) lies, it was about keeping the Tory party from imploding.

The reason Theresa May called an election was not just because it was feared there were about to be scandals of arrests for budgetary fraud at the last general election, nor that, having served divorce papers TM wanted to capitalise on delivering the results of the EU Referendum, it was to keep the Tory party together so it wouldn’t fall  apart like Labour. She alluded to this in her speech when she entered 10 Downing Street and again when she announced the election. Its about the party, not
about the electorate who they couldn’t give a damn about. The more divided the country is the better, so long as the Tory party remains together and appears strong, whatever that is.

If anyone is in any doubt about TM’s Brexit strategy I will spell it out in plain English. TM’s team will flounce out of negotiations because none of them could negotiate their way out of a wet paper bag, will claim victory and we will have to trade on WTO terms which are not always beneficial. The world has, is and continues to change very rapidly and we will need to ensure we are either in a position to take part in the changes and benefit from them, or we will go the same way as the USA,
redundant, ridiculed and surplus to requirements. The UK certainly should not emulate Trump and practice isolationism.

Trump &NATO

London Life

It occurs to me why Trump is such an advocate of encouraging other nations to pay for their own defence and it isn’t that America is “owed” money for “defending” other countries, it’s because America is broke. Stony broke. USA governments have put investment into military hardware above the well being of its citizens and now those citizens have some of the worst social care programs in the world which is well acknowledged. However a couple of points need to be borne in mind. The USA appointed itself the world’s policeman after WW2 and in so doing should bear the cost of doing so unilaterally. After being dragged into WW2 for the second time  in 20 years America came to the conclusion that the two largest countries in Europe needed to be kept apart to avoid another world war. This is fair enough.

The second point is that after the collapse of the Soviet Union the purpose of NATO became obsolete, defunct, had no further purpose. When Trump declared this in his pre-election rallies, he was correct, still is.

However after Trump was elected and British PM Theresa May visited him to school him in the ways of the political system, he quickly changed his mind, saying he understood the importance of NATO. The point of Trump touring various countries on his first trip as US President, particularly NATO HQ and Brussels, is that he is asking other countries who seem to think that keeping NATO as an entity is a good thing and if this is the case they should pay for this.

What these countries don’t seem to understand is that NATO is an American entity and as such, comes under the command of the US. They are in effect being asked to fund further “wars on terror”.  If these countries go along with this, they not only have blood on their hands right from the start, but they will end up like the USA, plundering the wealth of their nations for the sake of “security”. What’s more useful in keeping someone alive, a loaf of bread or a bomb? You can’t eat a bomb.

The Real Tory Party and Its Relationship With the Voters of the UK

European Commission; trade agreements; environmental impact; employment rights; democracy, General Election

It’s been an interesting week politically, the noise from the European Continent has quietened down as the French have chosen their President and the Eurocrats have settled back into their bottles of cognac and expensive wines.   In the UK Theresa May has finally decided to “meet” ordinary people on her campaign trail which has been stage managed so far with the only people being the Tory party faithful. This meeting came firstly on an interview she had   with her husband on a BBC show in the early evening, I didn’t watch it as I don’t think the BBC makes any programmes worth watching anymore and its news coverage is so biased it ought to be renamed “the government mouthpiece”. I cannot bring myself to forgive them for nuturing and covering up for known paedophiles in its organisation and, as an organisation, they just make me sick.

Theresa May’s second foray into meeting ordinary people came on the Nick Ferrari show on LBC. It was a good interview and well balanced, and I particularly liked the fact that it was left to the contributing public to put some really hard questions to TM who did her best to duck out of answering them. I have to confess I listened to this up until she was being questioned on the NHS and really couldn’t stomach the blatant lies that woman was saying.

However I took a few insights into this election and the tory party in general from this. Firstly, however much the Tories deride Labour and charge them with wanting to put up taxes after the general election, be absolutely assured this is what the Tories will do and they will do it to ordinary people who cannot carry any more burdens than have already been placed upon them. Secondly, this election is not about wanting a strong mandate for Brexit, it certainly isn’t about wanting a strong and stable leadership, its about keeping the tory party together so they don’t end up like Labour, various factions fighting it out among themselves. This is what she was alluding to when she talked about the country being more united. It’s not the country that’s more united, its the politicians who are more united against the will of the people. Yes, Article 50 has been triggered but that’s only the start, there’s a lot of negotiation to go before we get to the end point and get to see exactly what kind of Brexit we will have.

Will there be the kind of Brexit where we are allowed access to the EEC (the trading part of the EU) and still have to have migration from EU countries which, while the situation with incoming muslims into Europe is an issue, its certainly not something people in the UK would be happy about. Will there be a fudge (which I certainly think there will be) where our negotiatators give up certain ground in order to ensure we maintain some of the things we have become accustomed to having, such as free movement when we go on holidays, being able to buy olive oil, olives, salamis, cheeses, wines, beer and spirits cheaply but continue paying money to them; or will we have the kind of Brexit where TM flounces out of the negotiations, tells the Eurocrats to get stuffed and trade on WTO rules but regain the right to secure our borders, etc., etc..

It seems to me that the whole scenario that we have all been a part and fallen into the trap of, was to keep the Tory party together.

The Labour party has its Blairites, many of whom will either go or lose their seats in any case in this election. There will then be a group of people who will be the Labour party, party of the working people socialist in nature, working for a fairer society which is no bad thing. There will probably be a new party made up of whatever is left of the Blairites who will be Tory lite in the same manner Blair was. The other parties don’t really matter, they are
just there to make up the numbers and certainly don’t pose any threat to the established parties.

The Tory party is just as divided but they are a bit more disciplined in hiding it, but the one thing that has brought them together is the question of whether we are better off inside the EU or outside. There are those on both sides of the argument and these are the ones who will either return or be voted out. Looking at the election from the perspective of the Tory party, it really IS all about Brexit and whether May can get away with sticking 2 fingers up at Brussels and get away with it. What the electorate think really doesn’t matter, we’ll just have to lump it and get on with it. This explains the disdain the Tories have for the electorate and why the really do think voters are an irrelevance except when it comes to asking us to let them continue on their gravy train regardless.

Another interesting nugget of information Theresa May likes to bandy about publicly is her background as a vicar’s daughter, that she is a churchgoer and how her father instilled in her the idea of public service. I realise politicians are hypocrites, but she just keeps spinning like something out of a horror film. She probably is a churchgoer but she is not a Christian. Her father must have instilled in her a hate of public service because she is hellbent on
reducing public services in the UK to rubble. Cameron reduced the fire service so there are more deaths caused by fire now than there were 8 years ago, GP services are being decimated, as are services within the NHS, local government services, care for the elderly and young. People using food banks just to feed themselves is a national scandal that the Tories seem perfectly at ease with. The picture she likes to portray as someone who is strong may be fine for the Tory party who are mostly public school types who probably have fond memories of their nannies when they were children, but for the rest of us she is a cold blooded, heartless, hollowed out shell of an excuse for a human being and I certainly do not see her as fit to hold office, certainly not fit to be re-elected, Brexit or not Brexit.

To summarise: Having established that the Westminster bubble is alive and well in the political party system and the unity Theresa May alluded to in her General Election speech referred to how unified politicians are against the voting public, it is more important than ever that voters appraise their and May’s performance as PM so far and question whether the road she wants to travel down is one we want to join with her. More importantly, we need to convey to the politicians what kind of Britain we want to live in for the longer term, not just the next 5 years.  This needs some deliberate and careful thought and discussion.

Snap Election!

General Election, London Life

It’s been a while since posting but at last there is something to write about. The UK elections that Theresa May has called because her arm has been twisted because of illegal activities done in the last general election in the UK whereby up to 30-40 MPs are about to be prosecuted for false accounting which would be a major source of embarrassment to May and cut her working majority down dramatically. Any notion that she is a “strong leader” is poppycock. She only appears strong because the Labour party is in such a mess. Thatcher had the same easy ride in the 1980s because Michael Foot was Labour party leader.  He makes Comrade Steptoe (Corbyn), as he’s known, look like a great orator by comparison.  Theresa May talks absolute gibberish. None of her speeches make any sense. She uses emolient words that sound nice but when you actually analyse them, mean nothing at all.

My personal thoughts are that Brexit is being used as a distraction from other policies that are being pushed through behind the scenes, such as the deterioration of the NHS, schools, fire service, local community care services, housing and education, to name a few.

Of course there is the other player in the pack that also has an impact on how people will vote in an election, and that is the media. Since the Levison Enquiry that has tarnished the reputation of the entire press establishment and shown publicly just how incestuously close politicians and the press really are. As Cameron did very little to admonish the press it is safe to assume that the unwritten contract between government and the press has been that the press are utterly the government mouthpiece, or propaganda pushers. It is hard for the press to completely divorce themselves from this role in order to shine a light on the real issues of Theresa May’s policies and hold her government to account as it should be at this time.
As we have already had 10 months of Theresa May’s policies and she is unable to distance herself entirely from her predecessor’s policies, I think it’s only right to examine them closely.

Theresa May became prime minister by default of a party election after Cameron resigned, having lost the Brexit referendum. Since then she has shown herself to be evasive when she is pursuing policies she does not want scrutinised, heartless, uncaring about people who really are struggling and, as someone who has never had children (and yes, I will bring that subject up as it does make a difference in someone’s persona a psyche) is happy to use them in her propaganda (remember the Christmas cards made by children) to try to portray a softer image, but has no idea how tough life can be when you’re trying to make ends meet on low wages.

She supported the hated Bedroom Tax, she has failed to support disabled and long term sick people who really need our help and support. She is happy to cut the meagre benefits they are forced to live on and cut housing benefit which would see these vulnerable people living on the streets because, in her eyes, they do not contribute. I would argue thus:

In any society there will always be a core of people who are unable to do paid work, usually because of illness or because they are carers or other circumstances. It is absolutely right that they are given the support they need through benefits and this should never be denied to them, nor cut. It is the mark of a civilised society that the most vulnerable people are supported all their lives and if we in the UK want to consider ourselves civilised then this is what we should be doing.

Whatever system you devise for claiming benefits there will always be a small group of people who will claim benefits fraudulently. While you can put such people under surveillance to catch them out, and should, the amounts they claim are miniscule by comparison to the amounts of money that are given to rich people and companies by way of tax cuts, methods of tax evasion. Even the amount of money that is given to the Royal family in Britain. This is a family that is richer than any of us can imagine, they don’t need money and yet they are given millions. The Queen even has the audacity to claim more money because she can’t afford to have the builders in to do a few repairs, yet if you’re average family in social housing does the same they are made to wait months if not years in freezing, damp conditions before any upgrade. I would sooner and rather give money to those who really need it, the sick, disabled, unemployed, retired, young families than to rich people who are just parasites to the rest of society.

The mainstream press should stop demonising ordinary people for claiming benefits and start criticising the rich people and companies who evade paying their fair share of tax which puts an unfair burden on working people. That’s something people should care about because it directly affects us. Any party who will tackle this in reality is a party worthy of consideration for my vote.

Another point that is worth mentioning is over the years governments have made employment a precarious situation whereby more regulations are imposed, rights diminished, shoddy work practices become commonplace and workers are forced to re-apply for their own jobs. I think elections should also be treated in the same way but in reverse. Politicians are re-applying for their jobs and we should judge whether they have been doing their jobs properly either collectively or individually and vote accordingly. No politician should be allowed to behave in the arrogant manner so many of them do and consider themselves unaccountable when it comes to elections. Look, listen and question.

A New Dawn Has Come

European Commission; trade agreements; environmental impact; employment rights; democracy, General Election

Well that was the surprise that wasn’t, at least not to those of us normal people who have been kicked around by the system over the last 40 years or so, all over the world, not just the USA. Donald Trump has made it to the White House and how the politicians around the world are howling in disbelief and horror, well not all of them, but there are many who are. Goldman Sachs is threatening to leave London and relocate in Germany to which I say “good riddance”. Any other banking institution that is going to do the same can also leave because in due course the EU will cease to exist. The natives are restless and that can only be the best thing to have happened in many, many years.

For far too long the world political game has been dominated by those with money who have removed themselves from the ordinary people whose votes they depend on to get elected. Those same politicians who then completely ignore the needs and wishes of the ordinary people who toil away providing for their families, paying taxes which are then mis-spent on pet projects or used to grease the wheels of politics. The same ordinary people who have become the playthings of politicians who take it in turns to provide employment one day, and then create the conditions that make those same people unemployed and dependent on help, charity, benefits. Those same people who are demonised, forgotten and held in contempt.

Here in the UK we had BREXIT on 23rd June which many of our politicians are desperately trying to wriggle out of because they realise that they will have nowhere else to go once they lose their job at the next general election (which is a good thing as they are completely unemployable and as useful as a chocolate teapot!). In America the decline in the quality of candidates has been pretty much zero for many years. Reagan was a puppet who would just read the lines given to him, the Bushes (senior and W) were a complete disaster and while Clinton may have done well on the economic front, but “that incident” will always overshadow any good he may have done. Obama only did one good thing and that was to introduce Obamacare, the affordable healthcare act. The rest of his administration was rudderless and littered with broken promises.

In the last couple of years the US has ramped up the rhetoric against Russia needlessly in order to prove how “strong” the US really is. Every step the USA has taken has backfired spectacularly as they don’t seem to understand that the Soviet Union has transformed into a modern, fully functioning country that it more than capable of giving the US a run for its money. History has shown that any country which has tried to wrestle the bear has failed. Now that Donald Trump has won the election there is a collective sigh of relief from many ordinary people that World War 3 has been averted. Had Clinton won I can only imagine there would have been a bloodbath that would dwarf the lives lost in both WW1 and WW2 in the last century. For that reason alone I can only hope that the whispers of Chelsea Clinton making a bid for the White House in future years remain just that, whispers. Apart from her mother I cannot think of a less suitable person to enter politics than her. A rich woman who has never had to work in her life, grew up in the White House, probably has servants to wait on her (nanny, PA, hair dresser, etc., etc., same thing) has no idea what it is to make a few dollars stretch from one end of the week to the next and whether there would be enough to eat, or pay the bills.

Over here in the UK and EU it’s interesting that there are those politicians, senior civil servants desperately clamouring to “teach” Trump about the policy towards Russia and then there’s the drunken Juncker in Brussels and Hollande (who will soon be out of office anyway) and the even more reviled jew dwarf Sarkozy (who is trying to get back in, I sincerely hope he doesn’t) who would like to school the Donald in how things are done in Europe. I think these political failures need to understand a few things.

1. BREXIT and the election of Donald Trump are not an aberration, not an accident, not a slip of the pencil in the voting booth. They are the lawful way in which the majority of people whose taxes are being abused by those in government to tell the politicians they are sick of being treated like shit, being lied to and taken for granted.

2. You don’t become a successful billionaire businessman by being an idiot, careless or not knowing what you’re doing. At 70 years of age Donald Trump knows his own mind and how he wants to approach matters. He may need to re-think some of his policies but on the whole I think he’s looking in the right direction. Scrapping TPP and TTIP as well as a host of other transatlantic treaties would be a good thing and needn’t take as long as some say it will. A simple repeal bill would do and I believe there is the theory of nullification which may also be used at the new President’s behest, whether that is the best way forward remains to be seen but there are always ways around most problems. Remember, what can be done can also be undone, so it’s not that big a deal.

3. Dealing with criminal elements coming into a country is also a legitimate way of preventing undesirable elements entering into a country, thereby keeping it citizens safe. This is something the UK wishes to do and something that was lost in the last couple of years through the Schengen scheme. Free movement of people who share the same values and outlook is perfectly acceptable. Europeans with Europeans is fine. Americans with Americans is fine. The moment you introduce an element that does not share your outlook or values there will be trouble. However much they complain Muslims are and always will be a problem. Like the Jews they feel they are “exceptional, special even”; they feel they should be given special treatment; they feel they should impose their ways and beliefs on their host country; they have no interest in integrating or contributing and consider paedophilia a normal way of life and also maiming and killing.

In this instance Donald Trump and Theresa May should have much in common as we’ve had similar problems since the ISIS reared its ugly head and there seems to be a consensus of muslims who think ISIS are a cool thing to be a part of.

4. Mending ties with Russia is probably the smartest thing a US president could do. Russia is a large country, larger than the USA and has a lot of clout, particularly in Europe. The sanctions have hurt the EU economies greatly and I am astounded that neither Germany nor France put their collective feet down and told Obwana to fuck off and not interefere in the EU economies. Had they done this then the EU would not be in the mess it’s in now. EU leaders, if you can call them that, are held in so much contempt as is the whole EU project that the only way forward is to reassert who we are. White Christian Europeans will not be part of the Coudenhove-Kalerghi plan. We will not be wiped out by savages and inbreeds, we will not interbreed with them.

I would put forward that the way out of this impasse which will now be given more impetus through Donald Trump’s election is that rather than relying on cheap immigrant labour, each country put more effort and money into family stability, not necessarily marriage, but committed relationships. Where children are the centre of family life, are given good, free education that equips them for skills they will need in their futures. Where mothers are not forced back into work only months after giving birth but allowed to bring them up and give children stable upbringing without worrying about paying bills, putting food on the table and so on. Where fathers are encouraged to remain in relationships for their own good and that of their families. In this way there will be more work, better paid.

Work structures also need to be looked at. If the normal working week was no more than 28 hours per week at full pay and benefits this would be more satisfactory for all concerned and would pretty much guarantee full employment, a proper work/life balance and thriving economy. People would work better because they had more energy, families would work better, children would be better behaved because they had their parents attention properly, people would have the time to have their lives and relationships. It makes no sense to have a dichotomy of either/or, it doesn’t work and disenfranchises people from the main system. Despite tinkering around the edges over the years, the work structure hasn’t really changed. If anything, it’s become more entrenched and either you work all the hours there are or you’re unemployed.

Finally, I would like to congratulate the American people for voting in someone who isn’t part of the system, who can bring much needed fresh ideas that have a better chance of working for the good of the many, the 99%, not just the 1%. Thank you.

Humanity Has Died, Long Live Human Beings

London Life

I haven’t posted for a while as there have been so many events in the last few months that would normally have elicited comment from me, but I felt it would be better to take a step back and look at the bigger picture, if there is one. However, today Sunday 30th October 2016 sees a monumental event in that CETA has finally been ratified by both Canada and all 27 European countries. Today is the day humanity and any rights for human beings died and the corporates have won.

This is part of the new world order movement so beloved of many conspiracy theorists, except its not a conspiracy. The new world order is part of the picture promoted by the Jewish people for the world for many years and it looks as though they have won.

Conspiracy theorists have mostly been ignored or called nutters and some of them are, many of them don’t check their facts properly, others paint such a fantastical picture it’s hard to believe what they say but that would be to dismiss them and allow the world to trundle onto the pre-ordained future that will be a nightmare that humanity will never escape from. The corporate dominance of the world really is upon us and this may be the last time that we normal, ordinary people get to vote for anyone important as elections the world over are, and have been, rigged to such an extent that they instill only apathy and disgust at politics and politicians alike. In the next 10-15 years whenever there is a vote for government anywhere in the world, I can pretty much guarantee that only corporations will have the ability to vote, that’s the way we’re headed globally.

The question is what can we do about it? Brexit in the UK is a powerful force but one that politicians are willing to overlook, at their peril, which gives you some idea how deeply they are invested in this new world order as they have done very well out of it and will continue to do so. The America elections give two not-so-good candidates a chance to do what they want, one is being investigated by the FBI, the other has a loose mouth that says quite inappropriate things but has nuggets of sensible policies that will turn the USA around. If I were voting I would go for the latter. There are also elections in the EU which will be interesting to watch, particularly Germany, but let’s see what happens.

What is interesting is that PM May in the UK is steadily unpicking most of the roadblocks that were thrown in the way of the UK doing well by David Cameron. He always talked about a “legacy”, well any “legacy” he had in mind is being eroded, as well as that of other politicians since the 1990s. Therein lies the answer. In the same way that those who espouse the new world order were allowed to set up associations, societies, make inroads into respectable life, those things should be taken away from them. Those associations and societies made null and void, all those who run or are associated with such things given the same treatment they wished for others and then those values that have been slowly eroded under the guise of “multiculturalism” and “tolerance” brought back so that we can be strong as a people.

Those who have a preference for multiculturalism need to understand that you cannot share in someone else’s values and ways of thinking if you don’t understand your own. It is by having a good understanding of your own place in the world that you can share this with others. This does not mean you have to segregate, although it is natural to want to live with people who share your own values and are culturally similar, but it does mean you need to know who you are and where you come from.

We don’t need to go to war as it serves no purpose for those fighting such wars, it only serves a purpose for those sending young people to war while they sit back in their comfortable lives and make the right noises at the right times. It does take some backbone, strength of purpose and a willingness not to be derailed from your goal to be allowed to live ordinary lives normally with a fair share of the spoils of our work. Those purporting the new world order realise the game is up, most people understand who they are and what they’re up to, and there’s nowhere for them to hide.

Autumn Fruits and Other Vegetables

London Life

The Conference season is upon us again and it’s an interesting way for the established political parties to set out their stall for the months ahead and reiterate the party slogan both to the faithful and the rest of the country.   Labour seemed desperate, but they have every right to considering the utter shambles they created for themselves over the summer months after the Brexit vote.   They are still deluded that anyone actually listens to politicans and believes what they say and still only interested in talking to each other in Westminster regardless of what goes on outside of the political bubble.   It is fair to say that Labour have now got their wish, they are completely unelectable for the foreseeable future.  Note to Jeremy Corbyn; don’t bother to put up prospective MPs in the next general election, you won’t be getting many, if any returners.

The Tories with their shiny new PM and cabinet had a chance to set out their stall for what they hope to achieve in the coming months and it all sounds bright and hopeful with lots of nice words and phrases, however the fly in the ointment is the ongoing dispute with Southern Rail which belies the true nature of the Tories and quite simply says, “business as usual”, so don’t be fooled.

For those readers living outside of the SE of England, there has been an ongoing dispute between Southern Rail who run the franchise of train services between the South Coast of the UK, so Brighton, Eastbourne, Portsmouth, Chichester and Hastings and London as well as the Brighton to Bedford Thameslink services which also go through London.

Those of us who are unfortunate enough to have to use Southern’s services in order to get to work every day understand how awful they are.  The daily delays to get to and from work are frustrating enough.  You’ve got the app on your phone, you check the services, the app assures you everything is running normally, you get to the train station the boards announce there are delays from 2 minutes, 5 minutes then going to 10-20 minutes (this is the same train, by the way), then the board announces that the train you were waiting for will arrive at the same time as the next train going to your destination which you know is a physical impossibility as two trains cannot arrive at the same platform at the same time, then the next train is also delayed after a few minutes and the train you were waiting for is cancelled.  Then the scenario is repeated but if you’re lucky the next train which is full of passengers who would have got the previous train actually bothers to make it out of Victoria and there is the possibility you may actually make it home tonight.  Whoopee.  At this point I have to stress to my readers who live outside of the UK I am talking about overground trains and not the tube, which runs beautifully, regularly.

For those readers who are not in the UK the background to this dispute is that while the UK was one of the first countries in the world to have a railway 200 years ago, there has been very little in the way of investment since, save for new carriages periodically.   This means that many rural and suburban train stations have platforms which are much the same size as when they were first built or are curved which have always necessitated a guard to be on the train in case someone tries to catch the train at the last minute and gets themselves, bags or clothing caught in the doors.   The suburban commute to work has always been an unpleasant, expensive and overcrowded experience, one to be avoided where possible and complained about frequently.

A couple of years ago Southern undertook a programme of extending platforms to accommodate longer trains, only by two carriages per train but it’s enough to ensure a small amount of space for passengers.  However some station platforms could only be extended to accommodate so many carriages so passengers are asked to disembark from the first 7 or 8 carriages.   All well and good you say, but Southern are now saying that guards on what they call “metro trains”, that is trains running from the suburbs into London, should not have guards.   Safety measures would argue otherwise.   These are the lines that need guards the most.  Notwithstanding that there are cameras placed at various points along platforms, when a driver’s attention is elsewhere (i.e. closing carriage doors and preparing to drive the train out of the station) he will be unaware of someone struggling to get on or off the train at the last minute (how many times do people gaze up from their iPhone to realise which station they are at and rush off, even when it is announced?), someone rushing onto the train at the last minute as described above?   These are situations that happen very easily and need an extra pair of eyes on board, and not all station platforms are staffed, even at peak travel times.   The key is safety.

If Teresa May thinks this is her Thatcher moment where she can discredit and get rid of the Unions she has picked the wrong fight.   I have only three words that sum up the consequences of such blinkered thinking and they are Clapham Junction 1988.  Having privatised British Rail the private companies did away with many of the usual safety practices and it was hailed as a huge success for free market thinking.   A crowded passenger train crashed into the rear of another train that had stopped at a signal, and subsequently sideswiped an empty train traveling in the other direction. 35 people died and 415 were injured.

The collision was caused by a signal failure due to a wiring fault. New wiring had been installed, but the old wiring had been left connected at one end, and loose and uninsulated at the other. An independent inquiry, chaired by Anthony Hidden, QC, found that the signalling technician responsible had not been told his working practices were wrong and his work had not been inspected by an independent person. He had also worked a seven-day week for the previous 13 weeks. Critical of the health and safety culture within British Rail at the time, Hidden’s recommendations included ensuring that work was independently inspected and that a senior project manager be made responsible for all aspects of any major, safety-critical project such as re-signalling work.

The RMT union is absolutely correct which many commuters understand and support the Union in this regard.  Unfortunately Teresa May is a small minded, blinkered, free market thinker who is trying to show who’s boss, in supporting Southern’s position in this, she may find it will cost her dearly at the ballot box.   The markets are not some panacea for common sense and respecting that people who travel on trains whether for work or leisure have the right to expect to arrive safely and in one piece.   If Teresa May has any political nous she should call in Southern’s boss and tell him to retain the guards already in place and increase station staff presence in suburban stations.  If it hits Southern’s profits, hard cheese.

Have just come across the most insane story of the US elections that Obama has threatened black Americans that he would feel insulted if they did not vote for Hillary Clinton. I have to ask, is this the same Barack Obama, 1st black president of the US of A who stood by while many black people have been harassed, beaten and killed by US police? Is this the same Barack Obama who said zip while black Americans had their homes forclosed early on in his presidential campaign? Is this the same Barack Obama who promised to end wars and started more in the Middle East sending more soldiers out there to die, for what? So America could look like the big man on the block? Obama is a real piece of work and I hope many black Americans remember the many promises he broke when they go to the polling stations on election day.

Backseat Drivers Beware!!

Economics, London Life

The prospect of a former chancellor ripping into the present Tory government’s practices are the stuff of political nightmares, I should think, and yet this is what happened this week.  With David Cameron now departed just before the housing market totally crashes (which it will shortly) the only person left to be a constant headache to the present May-led government is George Osborne, former failed chancellor. What is pertinent is to look closely at Osborne’s record as chancellor and note that he never missed an opportunity to punish the poor, sick and disabled for being so and relished every such chance along with his close chum Dave.

There’s the bedroom tax announced the same day the Queen was given a whopping 30% pay rise, there’s the much fantasized “surplus budget” he aimed for, which everyone knew was a fantasy.

What is interesting are Osborne’s comments during the 2008 collapse where he said, “The more the government borrows the less attractive sterling becomes. He said: “We are in danger, if the government is not careful, of having a proper sterling collapse, a run on the pound.” And yet he himself pursued the same policies. In 2010 he aimed to cut the deficit so that it only amounted to fraction of govt spending by 2015-16 this went pear-shaped as national debt tripled as more private firms were forced to the wall because of his “austerity” policies which only ensured misery for millions of people who were subsequently made unemployed and then vilified for having to depend on the state for handouts in their time of need, conveniently forgetting those same people had already paid into the system through their taxes for such assistance from the state.

Osborne also introduced a cap on the amount of benefits a family could claim from £25,000 per year to £23,000 per year. This may not seem like a lot, but when you have a family of 2-4 mouths to feed, clothe, etc it doesn’t go very far. He also cut the rate of income tax for the rich from 50% to 45% simultaneously slapping VAT on Cornish pasties, beloved by ordinary people to pay for this.

At every turn Osborne could not help himself to keep the rich even richer while taxing the poor who could ill afford more taxes. Osborne also managed to lose the UK’s treasured AAA financial ratings. The fact that this chancer was in government is probably the only way he is avoiding criminal prosecution as, anyone else caught doing what he is doing would end up in court with a jail sentence at the end of it.

The point of this story is that he is still preaching the policies of austerity to the current government, I just hope the current chancellor, Philip Hammond manages to ignore this chancer and does what he thinks is right. Also, Osborne’s comments on the Hinkley C project which was cobbled together by Georgie-boy and his mate Dave. PM May was right to put the brakes on this project for a while and scrutinise it properly because it has to be remembered that we have just got rid of the two most dishonest, unscrupulous, morally bankrupt people ever to be elected to high office who have not just sold the family silver but the kitchen sink and scales that go with it.

Unfortunately Hinkely C has gone ahead and the cost to the consumer will be too high a price to pay at £92.50 per megawatt of electricity generated and will ensure that many people will resort to going back to the old fashioned ways of amusing themselves by candlelight such as reading a book, knitting, jigsaw puzzles.

The only way I can see Teresa May offsetting such a high cost is by investing in renewable energies which she can do quite easily and will ensure our electricity supplies far better than nuclear power can. The technology is there also to be able to harness solar power in batteries (Tesla) or generators which can store this energy and release it when needed so it then becomes more reliable. Personally, if I were in government I would do two things, flatten huge swathes of what I call “below standard housing”, the two-up, two-down Victorian terraces as well as just about any building built before 1889 across the UK which just become slums, are difficult to heat properly, are prone to damp and just not able to be adapted to modern day living. In doing this I could then implement a house building programme which would enable better, easier to heat and better built to accommodate modern living which would give families, couples and single people a better standard of living with the emphasis on orienting buildings so the largest part of the roof faces towards the sun and all properties must have solar panels (now you can even get roofing tiles with solar panels built in, which saves a lot of faffing around having roofing tiles and then solar panels on top). Any buildings that have a lot of glass in their structure (office buildings for instance) would need to be covered in solar generating film. These would all feed into the national grid for 50% of capacity which would have batteries that could store these charges for release later on. Many homes would also have these batteries so that they could also benefit from storing their own electricity power. In fact, I would go so far as to say that it is probably going to become incumbent upon many people to be as self sufficient as possible so far as generating their own electricity is concerned as the cost of power to heat, charge and enjoy the lifestyles we currently have is going to be that much more difficult after 2020 when this becomes operational. It must also be borne in mind that renewable energies such as wind and solar at present provides 27% of our energy needs with only a fraction of households having solar panels, whereas nuclear such as Hinkley only produces 7% of our energy needs. If the scenario I have outlined above were to be implemented we would easily have more than enough power to meet our needs and there would not be able question of national interests.

The Propaganda Machine Beyond the UK

London Life

I’ve been in Krakow, Poland for the past week enjoying a much needed break. It’s my second time back in Poland and I have to say I enjoy being there. I love the people, the food, the culture and the connection I have with my heritage. On both visits I have made a point of getting an understanding of the situation in Poland which is subject to a lot of misunderstanding and bad mouthing in the British and USA press which is based on ignorance and prejudice.

Firstly, despite the investment in infrastructure in Poland and loosening of ordinary people’s ability to set up their own businesses, which I’m sure is very welcome, they are experiencing the same problems as we are in the UK. The cost of living is low and so are the wages, in fact so low that it is common for 3 or 4 generations to be living under the same roof, in a good many cases, in 2 or 3 bedroom properties. This hampers familial relationships in that it is difficult for people to have space for their own lives and hobbies as would normally be the case.

Secondly, despite the involvement of the Americans in “helping” to avoid another Russian takeover, the American influence in daily life isn’t always welcome. Television programmes are pretty much the same as they are in the UK, they even have their own Jamie Oliver who in my opinion, has just basic cooking skills. Masterchef is just called Chef. What I call “talking heads programmes” where one or more guests is invited to give their view of events has taken on the format everywhere else, anytime the guest is suspected of saying something “controversial” they cut to a break, even if the guest is just contrasting a situation as it is now to events in previous years. The Americans have to remember Poland is Poland, not the USA. We have our own culture, our own language, our own history. On Polish soil Americans should behave as Poles and not impose their way on Poland.

Thirdly, there is the Jewification of the media. Now Jews have been a part of Polish life since 1264 when King Boleslav of Poland invited them to set up communities at a time when the rest of Europe was kicking them out of their countries notably England, Spain and France to name but a few. There have been recent whispers by notable Polish/Jewish scholars and others that Polish Jews have been badly treated by various communities in WW2. Recently Jaroslaw Kaczynski issued a new law making any such accusation against Poles illegal and punishable. Now the Polish collosus of film making, Andrzej Wajda, is making a film about Polish history but there are a lot of Jews involved which concerns me greatly as Jews have a habit of distorting events to suit their own agenda and with Wajda now cutting a frail figure at the age of 80, I wonder whether he will see the film made to its entirety and show the truth of Polish history without bias.

The current situation in Europe has touched many ordinary Europeans who are uneasy with the EU institutions as they currently are. The cry from the top of the pyramid is for “more Europe”. It is the utter definition of madness, repeating the same behaviour but hoping for a different outcome. The Jewish-inspired one world isn’t going to happen, I have said this many times previously in this blog. Co-operation is the best anyone can hope for. We all have our own languages, geography, geology, cultures, heritage, histories intertwined and solo. Instead of trying to get everyone to be the same and forget their history, nationality, languages and culture, just be respectful and admit defeat. The EU experiment is OVER, SO OVER. The genie is out of the bottle and now everyone will want their own referendum which national governments will be obliged to give to their electorate and the result will inevitably be that ordinary people want OUT of the EU institutions. Not bound by endless rules and regulations and working every hour of the day, being told what you can and cannot say or do. Moreover people are now waking up and realising that the one world is a Jewish nightmare that will only make life worse for everyone. If you don’t believe me, please get hold of “The Synagogue of Satan” Updated, Expanded & Uncensored by Andrew Carrington Hitchcock and read it through. It will turn your blood cold and your perspective of the world will never be the same again.

The Worst Kind of Politician …..

European Commission; trade agreements; environmental impact; employment rights; democracy, London Life

I haven’t posted in the last few weeks as it’s been very quiet. After the excitement of recent months on the political scene across the world most people have been sensible and taken a break over the summer months to enjoy the weather and recharge the batteries. What I have noticed among the comedic distractions of the Labour party in so-called turmoil are the siren voices suggesting that the will of the people could and should be overturned by politicians in parliament over the results of the Brexit referendum. These voices belong mainly to those in the Labour-Lite Party and a few former civil servants.

What these blatant fools don’t seem to realise is that it reveals the worst sort of politician, the type that only believes in “democracy” if they are on the winning side and, secondly they are only interested in furthering their own careers. Brussels being the place to go for failed politicians who are unemployable anywhere else.

They also seem to overlook the point that all the hand-wringing in the world won’t change the result as Brussels has accepted the result that the British want to leave and that we will need to do this in an orderly manner acceptable to all sides, not just in Britain. For all the accusations of being undemocratic and ignoring the voice of ordinary people (which it does in spades), Brussels understands that if the British wish to leave the last thing would be to blackmail, withdraw favourable terms or even threaten with unfavourable terms or worse as that would most certainly just put people’s backs up and make them more determined to leave and trade with the wider world where such childish behaviour would be seen for what it is.

The Labour-Lite Party does not understand that there are times when ordinary people understand far better what is going on and will vote accordingly. Labour-Lite are only interested in talking amongst themselves, within their own little cliques, throwing out the odd statement to appease the masses, but see themselves as somehow above the “common people”. They honestly believe they are somehow”special”, set apart from the rest of us.

The Tory Party on the other hand absolutely get it. The vote to leave was unequivocally a kick up the backside to the Establishment. For so many years ordinary people have been put upon, lied to, kicked when most in need and then treated like vermin. This was the one opportunity that ordinary people could tell the Establishment that it was not all going to go their way. Its our country and we have a say in what happens as well. Without ordinary people this country is nothing. Its time the Labour-Lites just packed up and went home because we really don’t need any of them, not one.

Shape up and shut up

London Life

There are two stories this week in the newspapers I would like to comment on, both are closely linked and I feel are a microcosm of what is going on elsewhere in the world. The two stories are that the New Zealand judge appointed to head up the inquiry into paedophilia among the establishment has quit before starting the enquiry itself, but not before she made a large amount of money on the salary she was paid nor before being made a dame. The other story is of Shami Chakrabarti’s appointment to the House of Lords by the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and the criticism it is drawing from the split Labour party who have decided they want to destroy the party and some Jewish groups. Both stories have a couple of familiar threads running through them.

The inquiry into the historic abuse of children by members of the establishment and well known figures in entertainment is one that a high ranking judge ought to be able to conduct without fear nor favour but equally should not have any personal links to anyone in the establishment that might be perceived as favouritism in any shape or form. This is why the first two high court judges were forced to resign, they had personal links (Dame Butler-Sloss was neighbours and had dinner parties with one of the named perpetrators, hardly suitable to conduct such a high level investigation). Then in comes a respected high court judge Lowell Goddard from New Zealand. Independent, knowledgeable and familiar with the set-up of the establishment and yet not tainted by familiarity of anyone in the establishment. A good start. Only now do we find that she has been made a dame after she said everyone in the establishment was within her remit, including royalty.

Although Dame Lowell Goddard has not given her full reasons for her resignation, it seems she felt unsupported in her position, among other things. This may well be the reality of the situation and she has been asked for a full explanation before a committee of MPs in the coming days and weeks, although having spent a total of 70 days in New Zealand and Australia which seems rather excessive.

Before Judge Goddard’s appointment to the inquiry it was commented that because the inquiry would involve questioning of establishment figures there was a danger it would be kicked into the long grass. It seems as though that point of view is looming every more truthful as time goes on.

The second story of Shami Chakrabarti being appointed to the Lords on the Labour benches reveals even more about the state of the Labour party itself than it does about Ms Chakrabarti. In the UK it is the convention that there are a few times in the year when the ruling party (at present the tories) can appoint those people it feels would be suitable and qualified with enough expertise and life experience to be a part of the law making process that make up the checks and balances of MPs. The opposition party can also do this, but don’t usually appoint as many, but it’s just enough so that the numbers are relatively even.

Shami Chakrabarti is a very well respected human rights lawyer who has frequently been the voice of reason, particularly in the last 6 years of a rabid, tory government trying to push through some of the most draconian law and strip away hard earned rights of the ordinary person. Several members of the Labour party, namely Tom Watson and others who decided to stab Jeremy Corbyn in the back have come out and said this is the wrong time for such an appointment. Various jewish groups have come out against Ms Chakrabarti’s appointment because through her inquiry into rampant racism in the Labour party found none to speak of. She found there may be ill informed or even ignorant comments but no racism or anti semitism. How typically jewish and childish. They didn’t get what they wanted so they’ll stamp their feet and accuse everyone of anti-semitism and/or racism until they get what they want.

Let’s take a closer look at both situations. Two of those accused of historical paedophilia were both jews, Greville Janner who pretended he had Alzheimer’s and Leon Britten. Both were elderly men who died just before their cases came to court. The jews have been and are being protected by the establishment who are themselves guilty of participation in such acts against children, this is a big part of their religion encouraged by the Talmud. Then you have the situation where one MP made some crass remarks years before she became an MP and was pilloried for it. She resigned her position and apologised. She has since been re-admitted to the Labour party. An inquiry was held by Ms Chakrabarti who concluded that although there maybe the odd arsehole, there are no racists. The jews don’t like it because it didn’t give them what they wanted and so they behave like children who didn’t get what they wanted. Here’s the thing, everyone has a right to be an arsehole whatever form that takes. It doesn’t make them a racist, sexist or anything else, just an arsehole, and guess what? The world is full of arseholes.

What is very revealing is that the Labour Party is now dead in the water, even if Jeremy Corbyn gets elected again. They are giving the impression they aren’t interested in being in government, that’s too much like hard work. It’s easier to stand on the sidelines shouting the odds. If that’s the case, just shut up shop and walk away. Find yourselves another job, use your political connections. Oh, that’s right nobody in their right minds would employ them in the real world because they are utterly useless liars and hypocrites. In which case, shape up and shut up.

The Aftermath of Brexit, or is it?

democracy, democratic rights, Economics, trade agreement

As it is now just over a month since the seizmic vote to leave the EU I thought I’d take a look at some of the claims being made by the media in regard to the economy post-Brexit. Apart from the sharp dip in the value of the £ nothing else has really happened that wasn’t a feature previously.

Manufacturing has slowed down a bit, as has retail activity but that’s to be expected after all, its the holiday season. People have gone on holiday, kids are on their summer break and so there is slightly less money being spent in shops, the need for temporary staff is still present in certain sectors and where it isn’t then people are covering their colleagues’ positions, as is the norm at this time of year. In fact, its true to say that the armageddon that was supposed to be unleashed by Brexit simply hasn’t happened.

What has happened is there is a slow down in the housing market which has been happening for the last few months in any case and was caused by artificial conditions created by the Cameron government in not building enough new housing, encouraging speculation in the housing market (buy-to-let scheme among others). This particular pimple is taking a hit post-Brexit as there is a sudden realisation that the current levels of high prices for properties, many of them sub-standard, old buildings that should have been demolished years ago have reached their peak. Watch this particular space in the market as this one will take off in a spectacular way in the coming months.

Whispers about the viability of the banking sector is also coming under scrutiny from the ability and capacity of the ECB to prop up ailing economies, particularly those who are trapped in a never-ending cycle of debt are unable to grow their economies to a level where healthy tax receipts would be enough to pay off national debts over a longer period of time. Also whether banks have enough reserves to withstand any further shocks to the economy and the breaking story this week that Chrisine Lagarde would be required to stand trial for her role in a €400 million payout case when she was Finance Minister in France in 2008. It seems the chickens are flying the coop already.

Since 2008 there has been a catalogue of activity by the banking system whereby bankers have continued their activities as usual, despite throwing the odd scapegoat under the bus. The crooks have protected each other and the banks have just got bolder. Giving money to governments and banks who had no way of repaying that money that would just get swallowed up in a black hole of debt. Throwing people out of their homes for lack of money, starving people to death for lack of money, blaming people and governments for mismanagement whilst all the time encouraging those same activities of their victims in the first place.

As night follows day there needs to be a seizmic shift in how money is made, managed and utilised for the good of everyone on the planet. It cannot be that everyone is required to be in debt to banks and to give that power to banks to enslave people forever. This is a Jewish construct which may enrich them, but does not contribute one iota to the well being of communities or the world.

In the Rothschild fervour to enslave everyone in debt they have only brought death upon themselves as, having accrued all the money in the world and killed all the people in the world except for themselves, the goods and services they need as much as anyone else cease to be produced and they themselves die. For what? So they can comfort themselves that they are powerful, that they are strong? Pathetic. Time for change.

What We Want and the Expectations of a New Government

democratic rights, European Commission; trade agreements; environmental impact; employment rights; democracy, trade agreement

In the weeks and months ahead the UK will seek to encapsulate the messages behind the huge vote to leave the EU and try to crystalize them into a coherent plan or strategy that will formulate the needs of the UK in divorce negotiations with the EU. Some will claim they voted to leave the EU because of immigration which was the main line of argument being put forward by the media who are only interested in stirring things up and dividing people into neat, manageable pigeon holes. However I think many were more swayed by the economic argument that there are no, or very few real jobs in the UK anymore. Most jobs are in the service sector which are casual by nature and badly paid.

Up until 6 years ago young people were full of enthusiasm for their lives and went to university believing that if they got a degree they would get a better paid job. Tony Blair expanded the subjects students could get degrees in, so quite a few were/are useless. Subjects such as media or film making are the kinds of subjects that should be taught on the job or at least be learned as a BTEC subject (higher education), which partly denigrates the status of a degree.

However successive governments of all shades in the UK have dumbed down education to the effect that I can say that when I took my O’Levels they were replaced by GCSE’s by the Thatcher government, thereafter things rapidly declined to a point where employers have absolutely no confidence in the quality of job candidates applying for positions in firms.

Fault also lies with lazy employers who are only interested in what they can get out of a person, rather than what they can invest in a person that will make them more effective in the workplace. This goes across both private firms and public sector industries.

Fault also lies with townplanners and developers across the UK. So many times planning permission is given for residential flats and housing estates with little or no provision given for the corner shop, schools, nurseries, local restaurants or cafes, libraries, community centres, doctors and dentist surgeries as well as somewhere safe to actually walk not just use the car. These are the integral parts that build communities and allow congregation and familiarisation of people in neighbourhoods. Without them new people coming, wherever they come from whether its across the world or from the next town will cause tension in competing for local services that are completely unnecessary. This was understood by philanthropists in the Victorian era. However, it seems politicians these days have had their heads turned by more sinister ideas being forced upon us and them.

Another huge worry was TTIP. Many people have become aware of it through public campaigns and were hugely thankful when Barak Obama said the UK would be at the back of the queue when negotiating trade deals with the USA. TTIP is one deal we are very glad to be at the back of the queue. Any UK politician should steer well clear of TTIP, TISA and other such “trade deals” as they have nothing whatsoever to do with trade and everything to do with giving up sovereignty, which the British people have spoken on loud and clearly.

The United Kingdom and the people within it are very far from being free. In fact we are as “free” as the Americans. Americans are enslaved people, the UK in its bid to be as close as possible an ally of the USA is happy to emulate so many of its ways, to the detriment of our own. We are not the 51st state, nor the 52nd and have no wish to be so.

Another thing people were seething with anger about was and is the micromanagement of human behaviour that attracts ever increasing legislation that is completely unnecessary. What time you put your bins out to be emptied, how your rubbish is to be sorted, what you can say or think, you can only do so as directed either by Brussels or by the pigmies in Westminster. This is why both Westminster and Brussels got the full brunt of the seething anger of the British people where it really counts. 6 years of unrelenting pushing against those who have the least, are the most vulnerable and who have been asked to sacrifice the most built up to a crescendo that was unleashed on 23rd June. The new PM will very much be judged on her performance like no other PM before her. This is a healthy dose of realism borne out of those 6 years of suffering. Under the new government people won’t just melt into the background grateful that the previously hated jingoistic liars and thieves have gone, we want a government that actually works for ordinary people and puts ordinary people first. If that means that Article 50 isn’t invoked at all, then so be it. The EU can go to hell in a handcart.

Time to Breathe, but not relax

democracy, democratic rights, European Commission

What a rollercoaster couple of weeks there have been in the UK. First the decision to leave the EU followed by David Cameron’s resignation, then both the Tory and Labour parties holding leadership elections and now we have a new female Prime Minister.

I have to confess to heaving a sigh of relief to see the two most hated government ministers finally haul their sorry arses out of Downing Street into oblivion, their names? David Cameron and George Osborn. The biggest shiesters to have ever dragged British Politics to ever lower depths since Margaret Thatcher, who herself was a soulless hypocrite and sleaze mistress par excellence. Cameron was effectively sacked by the British public and Osborn was sacked by Teresa May. Good riddance to both of them.

Time alone will tell whether she means any of what she said on the steps of 10 Downing Street as she entered to become PM and on that the country will reserve judgment. Her speech resembled that of David Cameron’s when he also took office, one nation that works for everyone. What he achieved was one nation rent from top to bottom as he pursued the Rothschild family interests above the interests of the UK. Divided and sub-divided many times but the feeling is one of a little more calm than there was previously.

However, events on the European continent and in Turkey leave me and others feeling nervous that the same could happen here with our own homegrown muslims some of who also have sympathies with IS, and relief that however things go for Turkey, one thing is for sure any idea that Turkey will join the EU while it harbours IS sympathisers including its dictator president, is a distant dream.   I just hope Angela Merkel feels very proud of herself knowing that she is also harbouring and encouraging these savages to come to Europe and then distributing them around the countries of Europe.  This is the Coudenhove-Kalergi plan coming into action so that white Europeans are either killed or bred out.  Unless European people realise this and get out of the EU however they manage to do this, Europe will cease to exist in 30 years time.   All because one man hated his white European ancestry and white Europeans and so many influential people supported him in his endeavours such as the Rothschilds, Winston Churchill and the Jewish Masonic Lodge B’nai B’rith.  One thread that joins the present time to that time is encapsulated in one word, eugenics.

Nowhere to Run, Nowhere to Hide

democracy, democratic rights

At last the long awaited Chilcott Report has been published and although the media have largely skimmed over the main points, the findings mainly confirm what has been known in the public domain already and that is that the war on Iraq was pre-planned, the “intelligence” was talked up, the allegations of weapons of mass destruction were false, the UN inspectors were not allowed to finish their job, war was not the last resort and Saddam Hussein posed no threat to America or the rest of the world.

Tony Blair was made to face the press and the families of those soldiers who lost their lives as well as Iraqi families who also lost loved ones in that conflict and as much as he played to the camera with his quivering lips and tearful eyes, the message was the same, he would do the same again, he made the best decision he could in the circumstances and he believed the world was a better place for the decisions he made. It was all about him. He was not in the least sorry nor was he contrite about his actions, he just looked like the cornered rat he is.

Well Mr Blair the evidence is stacked up against you. The man is not only deluded but completely maniacal, psychotic even. This mindset has taken hold in public life like a virus right across Parliament across all parties. There are just a small handful of truly decent people in the House of Commons and they are being forced out by those who also have psychotic tendencies. There is a good case for everyone wishing to be elected to parliament undergoing extensive psychiatric and psychological assessments for several months on end, so they can’t just give glib answers, so they don’t get to put the rest of the population in such positions again.

What makes my blood boil is the notion put forward by one parliamentarian that Blair would not face the full force of the law as there is no case to answer and its never been done before. I would beg to differ. King Charles I was beheaded for behaving like a tyrannical absolute monarch, among other things. I wonder what planet these people think they are on? If a King of England can be beheaded because he overstepped his powers then a government minister, a Prime Minister can also be tried in a court of law and imprisoned or worse (and I am of the mindset that a public hanging is very applicable in Tony Blair’s case).

On the evidence presented to the Chilcott Inquiry it has been shown beyond reasonable doubt that the Iraq war was pre-planned by at least 8 months beforehand. This proves mens rea or intention. The arguments and sending soldiers into battle gives actus reas or the act of. Both of these are necesary components in criminal law and I would say that Tony Blair committed an act of murder by government by planning and bringing together all the elements needed to put forward the case for war and then sending people into another country that Britain had no business being in and killing thousands of civilians who did not ask to be killed.

I would go further and say that the fitting punishment for someone in his position would be a public execution, even though hanging was outlawed in the late 1950s, I think we can make an exception in Blair’s case. I would force every MP, every top civil servant to watch Blair hang as a warning to all of them not to overstep their authority and certainly not to go on misguided adventures at the expense of other peoples lives. Another would be that all the money Blair has made throughout his life, and his wife as well, all the properties he owns be sold and the funds distributed to all those in the Iraq war who lost loved ones. I would leave Blair with only his underpants, destitute and homeless for the rest of his sorry, miserable life.

I totally get why the Americans feel so angry about the Iraq war, although it doesn’t excuse George W Bush from his part in the whole sorry story. Tony Blair was seen as someone who seemed intelligent and his wife is a barrister who subsequently became a QC, so even if Blair was sold on the idea of going to war and backing Bush, his wife should have counselled him against doing so, so she too is culpable. Again, the fact that the whole Iraq invasion was pre-planned shows that 9/11 was an inside job and that George W Bush should also be tried for first degree murder. The punishment they meter out is for the American people to decide.

The saddest thing is that both Blair, Bush and other politicians fail to see or understand is that when Tony Blair and George W Bush conspired to go to war and effect regime change in another country they effectively killed off any notion of democracy. That was when not only people lost their lives, people also lost the way they lived their lives and the effects of this are still with us today.

The Real Battle Begins

democracy, General Election, London Life

So the new battle begins to find a new leader for the Tory party and it brings out some very strange characters, each of whom is looking to massage their own ego.

On the one hand there is Theresa May who has been the most divisive, xenophobic Home Secretary I can recall in many years. This is the Home Secretary who has pushed through legislation that allows spying on ordinary people through computer and phone records on an industrial scale at the behest of the USA, who is happy to push through legislation that stops anyone putting up an alternative political party or giving another point of view during an election year. She would simply push for a totalitarian state Stalin would have been proud of. I simply cannot imagine a less suitable person to be PM and lead the UK Brexit talks to a conclusion that would benefit both the UK and EU. I dread to think how she would behave in a climate of foreign nationals having to negotiate a deal whereby Britain leaves the EU in amicable circumstances, I’m pretty sure she would do more harm than good.

Another candidate is Michael Gove the former Education Minister who tried to push forward education plans to further privatise education and dumb down the same for children from poor families. Failed

Jeremy Hunt the Health Secretary is another one who has thrown his hat in the ring, but I doubt will last the course. This is another minister who has bullied his way through trying to privatise the NHS and managed to achieve something quite extraordinary, junior doctors and other health professionals striking for the first time in decades in opposition to his plans and thinking that just because he is a minister he can simple force his plans through regardless of what others may think. Failed.

There are three other people largely unknown Liam Fox, Stephen Crabb and Andrea Leadsom. The only one of these who stands out for me is Andrea Leadsom who took part in some of the debates on the EU Referendum and was very much in favour of Britain leaving. If I were to make a decision as to who would be the most suitable person for leader of the Tory party at this juncture it would have to be Andrea Leadsom simply because she was fully behind the decision to leave the EU and would therefore have a full understanding of why so many people voted to leave. The others are simply careerists who have their own agenda and don’t give a fig for the greater good of the UK.

The media absolutely love Theresa May who remotely reminds them of Thatcher. However, the media do not run the country and the people will have their say. The appetite for another heartless, sociopathic robot as PM simply isn’t there, so even if she is voted in by fellow Tories, won’t win the public vote.

 

Tak więc nowy Walka zaczyna się znaleźć nowego lidera dla partii torysów i wydobywa kilka bardzo dziwnych znaków, z których każdy stara się masować swoje własne ego.

Z jednej strony jest Theresa May, który był najbardziej podziały, ksenofobicznym Home Secretary Pamiętam wiele lat. To jest minister spraw wewnętrznych, który przeforsował ustawodawstwa, które pozwala szpiegostwo na zwykłych ludzi za pośrednictwem komputera i telefonu rekordy na skalę przemysłową na żądanie USA, który jest szczęśliwy, aby przeforsować przepisy, które zatrzymuje ktoś stawiania alternatywną partię polityczną lub udzieleniu inny punkt widzenia w trakcie roku wyborczym. Ona po prostu dążyć do totalitarnego państwa Stalin byłby dumny. Po prostu nie mogę sobie wyobrazić mniej odpowiedniej osoby do bycia PM i prowadzić rozmowy UK Brexit do wniosku, że korzyści zarówno w Wielkiej Brytanii i UE. Boję się pomyśleć, jak będzie ona zachowywać się w klimacie cudzoziemców mających negocjować umowę, zgodnie z którą Brytanii pozostawia do UE w przyjaznych okolicznościach, jestem całkiem pewny, że zrobi więcej szkody niż pożytku.

Innym kandydatem jest Michael Gove były minister edukacji, który próbuje pchnąć do przodu planów edukacyjnych w celu dalszego prywatyzacji edukacji i niemych dół same dla dzieci z ubogich rodzin. Niepowodzenie

Jeremy Hunt Sekretarz Zdrowia jest kolejnym, który rzucił czapkę w ringu, ale wątpię, będzie trwał kurs. Jest to kolejny minister, który zastraszany drogę przez próbuje sprywatyzować NHS i udało się osiągnąć coś zupełnie niezwykłego, junior lekarzy i innych pracowników służby zdrowia uderzające po raz pierwszy od kilkudziesięciu lat w opozycji do swoich planów i myśli, że tylko dlatego, że jest ministrem potrafi prosta siła jego plany poprzez niezależnie od tego, co inni mogą myśleć. Nie powiodła się.

Istnieją trzy inne osoby w dużej mierze nieznane Liam Fox, Stephen Crabb i Andrea Leadsom. Tylko jeden z nich, który wyróżnia się dla mnie jest Andrea Leadsom, którzy wzięli udział w kilku debatach na temat referendum unijnym i był bardzo na korzyść Brytanii wyjeżdża. Gdybym miał podjąć decyzję o tym, kto będzie najbardziej odpowiednia osoba na lidera partii torysów w tym momencie, że to musi być Andrea Leadsom po prostu dlatego, że w pełni stał za decyzją o opuszczeniu UE i dlatego mają pełne zrozumienie, dlaczego tak wiele osób głosowało opuścić. Pozostali są po prostu karierowiczów, którzy mają swoje własne cele i nie dają rys dla dobra Wielkiej Brytanii.

Media uwielbiam Theresa May, którzy zdalnie przypomina im Thatcher. Jednak media nie działają kraj i ludzie będą mieli do powiedzenia. Apetyt na kolejny nieczułego, socjopatycznego robota jako PM po prostu nie ma, więc nawet jeśli jest ona głosowało przez innych torysów nie wygra głosowaniu jawnym.

Aftershock and Coming to Terms With ….

democracy, democratic rights, European Commission; trade agreements; environmental impact; employment rights; democracy, London Life

It has been more than a week since the UK voted to leave the EU and there has been a largely upbeat view of the result with quite a few other EU countries also seeking to hold their own referenda on the same subject. In the UK the result has slowly sunk in with some people – predominantly those under the age of 40 thinking the result to leave the EU is a disaster and that all sorts of bad things will happen to the UK. These are the people who have never known anything other than the UK being joined at the hip to the EU.

In so many areas of life it is the convention that the future belongs to the young. It does, because they are the ones who have the energy, enthusiasm and ideas to shape the world how they want it to be. However, in this case the future still belongs to young people but not in the way they have become accustomed to it being, in this case those people do really appreciate what it really means to be part of an enslaved people that young people seem to be so willing to walk into. What is really annoying are people like the failed and largely discredited Tony Blair saying in effect that the British people cannot be trusted to know their own minds and the result should not be taken seriously. Again, it betrays the utter contempt people like him view ordinarly people.

My personal view is that once the political dust has settled in the UK, which probably won’t be for some time, that whoever emerges as prime minister of the UK after a general election should take stock of the result and not be in a hurry to envoke Article 50 as the EU would do its utmost to make an example of the UK in the manner it did of Greece; and yes, the EU is quite happy to cut off its own nose to spite its face as they are doing in continuing sanctions against Russia.

By continuing sanctions against the largest trading partner of the EU in Russia and looking forward to punishing the UK in similar fashion, Merkel, Schaubel, Juncker and others of similar mindset are putting in place the very same circumstances that will ensure that not only Europe is bankrupt but also the German economy will suffer as it did in the 1930s under the Weimar Republic, only who will they blame this time? The immigrants so welcomed by Merkel? The countries who decided that perhaps this isn’t the direction that Europe should be travelling in? Maybe even Merkel herself. Time alone will tell, until then so many people across Europe will have to suffer in order for this already failed social experiment to be maintained at all costs, after all, so many (failed) politicians jobs are at stake.

To było ponad tydzień od Wielkiej Brytanii przegłosował opuścić UE i nastąpił głównie optymistyczne widzenia wyniku z dość kilka innych krajów UE stara się również do posiadania własnego referendów w tej samej sprawie. W Wielkiej Brytanii rezultatem powoli dotarło z niektórych ludzi – przeważnie osób poniżej 40 roku życia myśli wynik opuścić UE jest katastrofą i że wszelkiego rodzaju złych rzeczy się stanie z Wielkiej Brytanii. Są to ludzie, którzy nigdy nie wiadomo, coś innego niż Zjednoczone Królestwo są połączone na biodrze do UE.

W wielu dziedzinach życia jest konwencja, że przyszłość należy do młodych. Czyni, bo oni są tymi, którzy mają energię, entuzjazm i pomysły, aby kształtować świat, jak chcą go mieć. Jednak w tym przypadku w przyszłości nadal należy do młodych ludzi, ale nie w taki sposób, że przyzwyczaili się do jej istnienia, w tym przypadku tych ludzi naprawdę docenić to, co to naprawdę znaczy być częścią zniewolonych ludzi, że młodzi ludzie wydają się być tak chętnie chodzić do. Co jest naprawdę denerwujące są ludzie tacy jak nieudanej iw dużej mierze zdyskredytowane Tony Blair mówiąc w efekcie, że Brytyjczycy nie można ufać, by poznać własne zdanie i wynik nie powinien być traktowany poważnie. Ponownie, to zdradza całkowitej pogardy ludzie tacy jak on zobaczyć ordinarly ludzi.

Moje osobiste zdanie jest, że gdy opadnie kurz polityczny w Wielkiej Brytanii, która prawdopodobnie nie będzie przez jakiś czas, aby każdy, kto wyłania się jako premier Wielkiej Brytanii po wyborach powinna dokonać podsumowania wyników i nie być w pośpiechu do envoke Artykuł 50 a UE zrobi co w jego mocy, aby przykład w Wielkiej Brytanii w sposób to miało miejsce w Grecji; i tak, że UE jest bardzo szczęśliwy, aby odciąć swój nos na przekór jego twarz, jak to robią w kontynuowaniu sankcji wobec Rosji.

Kontynuując sankcje przeciwko największym partnerem handlowym UE w Rosji i czekam na karanie Wielkiej Brytanii w podobny sposób, Merkel, Schaubel, Juncker i inne o podobnym sposobie myślenia jest wprowadzenie te same okoliczności, które zapewnią, że nie tylko Europa jest upadłość, ale także niemiecka gospodarka będzie cierpieć jak to miało miejsce w 1930 roku w ramach Republiki Weimarskiej, tylko kto będzie winią tym razem? Imigranci tak mile widziane przez Merkel? Kraje, które zdecydowały, że może to nie jest kierunek, że Europa powinna być podróży? Może nawet Merkel. sam czas pokaże, do tej pory tak wiele osób w całej Europie będą musieli cierpieć, aby ta już nieudany eksperyment społeczny być utrzymane za wszelką cenę, mimo wszystko, tak wielu (nie), politycy miejsca pracy są zagrożone.
