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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A New Dawn for the EU?

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

23rd June 2016 was the day the UK voted to leave the EU and I am proud to be counted as one of those who voted to leave. For many young people who don’t have the benefit of recalling the UK as it was before joining the EEC as it was then, they are fearful for what the future will bring, thinking that if only we voted to remain things would turn out ok. For those who can remember the UK as it was before joining the EEC, its a very different story.

I am one of those who can remember the UK in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s before the EEC morphed into the monstrosity it is now. While it wasn’t a perfect country in terms of the economy there were real, skilled jobs with real pay and although people weren’t wealthy, most people were in better health than they are now as they ate better rather than relying on ready made meals from supermarkets, there weren’t so many overweight people as people did physical work. When women had babies they weren’t forced to go to work because food, goods and services were inexpensive enough a single wage from a married couple was enough to provide for a family and keep a roof over their heads. Young people could go to university and be educated for free. Those people who wanted to improve their careers could go to adult education classes and gain qualifications for a nominal sum of money, as most of the courses were subsized by the local government. It was unheard of for old people to be left without care when they wanted it or to have to sell their houses in order to pay for care when they became too infirm to care for themselves.

Working life was easier too, people were not expected to work all the hours of the day for next to nothing, to sacrifice family life. You worked a 35 hour week with an hour for lunch and felt you had the energy to do other things at the end of the day and week rather than being so exhausted you just don’t have the energy even to talk to people. Jobs were plentiful and you could walk out of a job and in a week or two get another one.

Certainly as someone who came from an immigrant family I didn’t have a problem with people as I was growing up. Occasionally I’d be told to go back to where I came from but I quickly learned to have an answer to those sorts of comments, such as, “you mean my mother’s womb?” I would certainly tell any Europeans here in the UK to remain in the UK and continue your lives as there wouldn’t be any backlash. You came legally, you work hard and the UK benefits from your quiet, good culture that emphasizes family life. This is very much respected. Those that do make life difficult are in the minority.

Writing this on 24th June the immediate effect has been that the stock markets have dropped dramatically. I don’t see this as a problem. We’ve had markets drop before and then bounce back. In this case what is dropping is the fact that those in the banking industry who have been chasing smaller and smaller returns hoping to somehow fool the rest of us into thinking that the economy is healthy are now having to face reality. It isn’t.

8 years ago when the banking sector collapsed because of failed mortgages when the banks were helped out by governments around the world, none of these institutions reformed their practices. It’s been business as usual and they have continued to print money like its going out of fashion. This kind of stupidity is now coming home to roost and there will be a bumpy ride for a while but it will even out and we can work out how banks and money should be a part of society that services it rather than inflating money out of all proportion and creating debt and misery and calling it “growth”.

In time these same markets will stabilise and life will be better than it is now, for certain.

What is so nice is that other European countries also want to have their Exit Referenda and I hope they get these and vote to leave as well. I have previously said that to expect 28 countries to all fit into one type of superstate is a foolhardy exercise. All 28 countries of the European Union have their own cultures, geography, traditions, language and food which is to be celebrated in itself, but to have a one-size-fits-all model for all of them and expect them to shoe horn themselves into is complete lunacy. Of course it provokes tensions.

The worst thing of course is that the Germans have been so obliging in ensuring the demise of the European Union itself by first of all continuing sanctions against Russia which is the biggest trading partner of Europe, and then for that idiot cow, Merkel to welcome the world into Europe, triggering the Caudenhove-Kalergi plan into action. The worst act of deviousness has been to bully Poland, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic with fines of 250,000 Euros for each rejected “refugee”. For the last 250 years a good part of Europe has sought to kill off the Slavic people through wars, starvation and occupation and still we come back. Now they want to kill off what remains of the Slavic people through rape and interbreeding and head cutting by people who have no intention of integrating into society, but imposing their own beliefs, religion and traditions onto European and Slavic people.

Once Europe has taken back control of its own countries there will be repercussions for Germany and it will not be welcomed with open arms. Germans are a nation of bullies who should never be trusted with anything. Having now welcomed all these head choppers into Germany I hope they will learn their lessons well.

 

23 czerwca 2016 był dniem Wielkiej Brytanii przegłosował opuścić UE i jestem dumny, że liczy się jako jeden z tych, którzy głosowali opuścić. Dla wielu młodych ludzi, którzy nie mają korzyści z przypominając Wielkiej Brytanii, jak to było przed przystąpieniem do EWG, jak to było wtedy, że boją się tego, co przyniesie przyszłość, myśląc, że jeśli tylko głosowaliśmy pozostać rzeczy okaże się ok , Dla tych, którzy pamiętają Wielkiej Brytanii, jak to było przed przystąpieniem do EWG, jej zupełnie inną historię.

Jestem jednym z tych, którzy pamiętają Wielkiej Brytanii w 1960 roku, 1970 i 1980, zanim EWG przekształcił monstrum jest teraz. Mimo, że nie był to idealny kraj z punktu widzenia gospodarki nie były prawdziwe, wykwalifikowanych miejsc pracy z prawdziwymi wynagrodzenia i chociaż ludzie nie byli bogaci, większość ludzi były w lepszym zdrowiu niż obecnie, jak jedli lepiej zamiast polegać na gotowych posiłki z supermarketów, nie było tak wiele osób z nadwagą, jak ludzie zrobili pracy fizycznej. Kiedy kobiety miały dzieci nie byli zmuszeni iść do pracy, ponieważ żywność, towary i usługi były na tyle niedroga pojedynczy płac z małżonków było wystarczające, aby zapewnić rodzinie i utrzymać dach nad ich głowami. Młodzi ludzie mogą iść na studia i zostać wykształcona za darmo. Tych ludzi, którzy chcieli poprawić swoje kariery mógł pójść do dorosłych zajęcia wykształcenia i kwalifikacji zysk za symboliczną sumę pieniędzy, ponieważ większość kursów zostały subsized przez samorząd. To było niespotykane dla starców być pozostawione bez opieki, gdy chcieli, czy musieli sprzedać swoje domy, aby zapłacić za opiekę, kiedy stał się zbyt niedołężnych dbać o siebie.

było łatwiej też nie oczekiwano ludzie życie zawodowe do pracy wszystkie godziny dnia za bezcen, rezygnować z życia rodzinnego. Pracowałeś 35 godzinny tydzień pracy z godziny na lunch i czuł miałeś energię na inne rzeczy na koniec dnia i tygodnia, a nie jest tak wyczerpany, po prostu nie mam siły nawet rozmawiać z ludźmi. Praca były obfite i można wyjść z pracy i za tydzień lub dwa dostać inny.

Oczywiście, jak ktoś, kto pochodził z rodziny imigrantów nie miałem problemu z ludzi, jak dorastałem. Czasami chciałbym być poinformowani, aby wrócić do skąd jestem, ale szybko nauczył się otrzymać odpowiedź na te rodzaju komentarze, takie jak “masz na myśli łonie matki?” Ja na pewno powiedzieć, żadnych Europejczyków w Wielkiej Brytanii pozostanie w Wielkiej Brytanii i kontynuować swoje życie, gdyż nie byłoby żadnych luzów. Przyjechałeś legalnie, musisz ciężko pracować, a korzyści dla Zjednoczonego Królestwa od swojej spokojnej, dobrej kultury, która podkreśla życia rodzinnego. To jest bardzo szanowany. Te, które mają utrudnić życie są w mniejszości i zasługują na bity, skoro oni dostać ich osłów wyrzucony są mniej prawdopodobne, aby utrudnić życie.

Pisanie to na 24 czerwca Bezpośrednim efektem było to, że rynki akcji spadły dramatycznie. Nie widzę w tym problemu. Mieliśmy rynki spadku przed i potem wraca. W tym przypadku, co spada, jest fakt, że ci w sektorze bankowym, które zostały pogoni za coraz mniejsze zyski w nadziei, aby w jakiś sposób oszukać resztę z nas do myślenia, że gospodarka jest zdrowa muszą teraz zmierzyć się z rzeczywistością. To nie jest.

8 lat temu, gdy sektor bankowy załamał się z powodu nieudanych kredytów hipotecznych, kiedy banki były pomógł przez rządy na całym świecie, żadna z tych instytucji zreformować swoje praktyki. To było jak zwykle i mają nadal drukować pieniądze jak jej wychodzi z mody. Ten rodzaj głupoty jest teraz wraca do domu do gniazda i nie będzie ostra jazda na chwilę, ale nawet na zewnątrz i możemy dowiedzieć się, jak banki i pieniądze powinny być częścią społeczeństwa, że usługi to zamiast pompowania pieniędzy na wszystko odsetek i tworzenie długu i nędzę i nazywając go “wzrostu”.

W czasie tych samych rynkach ustabilizuje się, a życie będzie lepiej niż jest teraz, na pewno.

Co jest tak miły, że inne kraje europejskie również chce mieć swój Exit referenda i mam nadzieję, że się je i zagłosuj opuścić również. Już wcześniej powiedział, że spodziewać się 28 krajów na wszystkich pasować do jednego rodzaju superpaństwa jest ryzykowne ćwiczenia. Wszystkie 28 państw Unii Europejskiej mają własnej kultury, geografii, tradycji, języka i żywność, która ma być obchodzony w sobie, ale mają jeden rozmiar dla wszystkich model dla wszystkich z nich i oczekiwać ich do buta horn się w zakończeniu obłęd. Oczywiście, że prowokuje napięcia.

Najgorszą rzeczą jest oczywiście, że Niemcy zostały więc zobowiązanie zapewnienia upadek samej Unii Europejskiej poprzez przede wszystkim kontynuowanej sankcji wobec Rosji, która jest największym partnerem handlowym Europy, a następnie do tego idioty krowy Merkel na powitanie świat w Europie, wywołując plan Caudenhove-Kalergi do działania. Najgorsze akt przewrotności było zmusić Polskę, Węgry, Słowację i Czechy grzywną 250.000 euro dla każdego odrzuconego “uchodźcy”. Przez ostatnie 250 lat spora część Europy stara się zabić słowiańskie ludzi poprzez wojny, głodu i okupacji i ciągle wracamy. Teraz chcą zabić co pozostaje słowiańskich ludzi poprzez gwałt i krzyżowania i głowicy tnącej przez ludzi, którzy nie mają zamiaru zintegrowania ze społeczeństwem, ale narzucanie własnych przekonań, religii i tradycji na ludzi europejskich i słowiańskich.

Gdy Europa podjęła odzyskać kontrolę nad własnymi krajami będą reperkusje dla Niemiec i nie zostanie przyjęty z otwartymi ramionami. Niemcy są narodem zbirów, którzy nigdy nie należy ufać z niczego. Mając teraz powitał te śmigłowce głowę w Niemczech mam nadzieję, że nauczą ich lekcje dobrze.

The Death of Politics?

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

The death of British MP Jo Cox this week was a cause for concern and disbelief that anyone could be so violent towards another human being. By all accounts she was a talented, principled young woman who achieved a lot in her first year of being elected to office. However, there are a couple of issues that trouble me.

Firstly, I’m glad that MPs across the country marked their respect for Ms Cox by attending their weekly advice surgeries across the country. This is as it should be. MPs in the UK are accessible to their local constituents so that they do not entirely forget why they are there and who put them there. MPs are there to answer and resolve grievances of the people who elected them to office, as well as to be reminded that ordinary people with ordinary problems are what connects us all.

Secondly, I’m glad and hope that MPs will not resort to having superstar-type security around them. This is not the USA but the UK and as mentioned previously MPs should be accessible to all their constituents.

Thirdly, what is absolutely reprehensible is that the media are trying to turn around what is a rare and tragic act of violence by someone of a weak, impressionable and disturbed mentality into an act of heroism that MPs go through in their jobs in the same manner as staff in A&E units or as beat police officers across the UK do. This is not the case and in no way justifies what the media (and in turn certain MPs) are trying to draw parallels with.

MPs not only court publicity they revel in it. Whether their constituency is a small cluster of villages (or even one) or large town.  MPs need publicity as part of their job and in order to put their ideas and proposals into the public domain. This is how it should be.

However in recent years MPs have tried to shut themselves away from the outside world and put themselves in a place above and beyond the reaches of common decency, politeness and fairness that many people outside of Westminster abide by.

Indeed only last week George Osborn actually threatened voters with more cuts to public services and cuts to benefits if voters dared to vote to leave Europe. The voting public in the UK have been subjected to outright lies, smears, manipulation, personal insults and the kind of behaviour no doubt seen in public schools or in bars by rugby teams that are shameful and an utter disgrace to the office they hold. This was evident not only in the 2010 election but also in last years election in May, previously in the Scottish Referendum and again in the London Mayoral election and also in the last few months in the EU Referendum. If nothing else it is an insult to the intelligence of the average British voter if they honestly believe we’re that stupid to believe them. It also betrays the contempt many MPs hold the average person in. If MPs want a fight then they only need to continue as they have been doing in the last 6 or more years and remember this, the EU Referendum is also a vote of confidence in how well or otherwise we, those same people who have been treated with such contempt by these rich politicians, think Dave and the rest of the Tories have done. A vote to leave the EU will also be a vote of no confidence in Dave’s negotiating abilities.

Brexit and the Truth Behind the Real Europe

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

At the risk of boring my readership, the current circus being conducted in the UK about the EU Referendum and our decision as to whether we remain or leave the European Union is entering its final couple of weeks and the arguments are coming in thick and fast.

David Cameron set out his reasons as to why we should stay, which were quickly and properly shot down by a TV audience of a mixed bag of voters, some pro, others against and some undecided. Quite a lot of pertinent questions were put by the audience, none of them properly answered by Cameron.

The usual Punch-and-Judy show between politicians and a swathe of politicians, luvvies and so-called business people have put forward their cases for and against remaining or leaving. However I think I have come to the crux of what Europe is really all about and it chills me to the bone.

For months I have said that the influx of “refugees” is false, many of them are not refugees but invaders. I urge you to look up the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan but for the sake of whetting your appetite will give you this quote:
The genocide of the Peoples of Europe

Illegal migrant trafficking and forced mass Immigration (into European Nations only) is now creating chaos throughout much of Europe, especially in Germany and Sweden, including parts of France and many other European countries too. A constant flood of boats arriving from mainly Africa reveals a structured network of pre-planned routes into Europe, with the eventual goal of completely displacing Europeans from their homelands, and replacing them with cheap labour from all over the third world. European Nations and their populations have already been dramatically transformed by decades of mass Third World immigration and the relentless promotion of ”diversity” and multiculturalism by the mainstream media and it’s ”progressive” agenda.

This is no coincidence, and was all planned many years ago as laid out in the Coudenhove-Kalergi plan, which is a plan for the systematic genocide of the native peoples of Europe.

***********************************

The Coudenhove-Kalergi plan – The genocide of the Peoples of Europe

Mass immigration is a phenomenon, the causes of which are still cleverly concealed by the system, and the multicultural propaganda is trying to falsely portray it as inevitable. With this article we intend to prove once and for all, that this is not a spontaneous phenomenon. What they want to present as an inevitable outcome of modern life, is actually a plan conceived around a table and prepared for decades, to completely destroy the face of the continent.

The Pan-Europe

Few people know that one of the main initiators of the process of European integration, was also the man who designed the genocide plan of the Peoples of Europe. It is a dark person, whose existence is unknown to the masses, but the elite considers him as the founder of the European Union. His name is Richard Coudenhove Kalergi. His father was an Austrian diplomat named Heinrich von Coudenhove-Kalergi (with connections to the Byzantine family of the Kallergis) and his mother the Japanese Mitsu Aoyama. Kalergi, thanks to his close contacts with all European aristocrats and politicians, due to the relationships of his nobleman-diplomat father, and by moving behind the scenes, away from the glare of publicity, he managed to attract the most important heads of state to his plan , making them supporters and collaborators for the “project of European integration”.

In 1922 he founded the “Pan-European” movement in Vienna, which aimed to create a New World Order, based on a federation of nations led by the United States. European integration would be the first step in creating a world government. Among the first supporters, including Czech politicians Tomáš Masaryk and Edvard Beneš and the banker Max Warburg, who invested the first 60,000 marks. The Austrian Chancellor Ignaz Seipel and the next president of Austria, Karl Renner, took the responsibility for leading the “Pan-European” movement. Later, French politicians, such as Léon Bloum, Aristide Briand, Alcide De Gasperi, etc will offer their help.

With the rise of Fascism in Europe, the project was abandoned and the “Pan-European” movement was forced to dissolve, but after the Second World War, Kalergi, thanks to frantic and tireless activity and the support of Winston Churchill, the Jewish Masonic Lodge B’nai B’rith and major newspapers like the New York Times, the plan manages to be accepted by the United States Government. The CIA later undertakes the completion of the project.

The essence of the Kalergi plan
In his book «Praktischer Idealismus», Kalergi indicates that the residents of the future “United States of Europe” will not be the People of the Old Continent, but a kind of sub-humans, products of miscegenation. He clearly states that the peoples of Europe should interbreed with Asians and colored races, thus creating a multinational flock with no quality and easily controlled by the ruling elite.

Kalergi proclaims the abolition of the right of self-determination and then the elimination of nations with the use of ethnic separatist movements and mass migration. In order for Europe to be controlled by an elite, he wants to turn people into one homogeneous mixed breed of Blacks, Whites and Asians. Who is is this elite however? Kalergi is particularly illuminating on this:

The man of the future will be of mixed race. The races and classes of today will gradually disappear due to the elimination of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-negroid race of the future, similar in appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples and the diversity of individuals. Instead of destroying European Judaism, Europe, against her will, refined and educated this people, driving them to their future status as a leading nation through this artificial evolutionary process. It’s not surprising that the people that escaped from the Ghetto-Prison, became the spiritual nobility of Europe. Thus, the compassionate care given by Europe created a new breed of aristocrats. This happened when the European feudal aristocracy crashed because of the emancipation of the Jews [due to the actions taken by the French Revolution]

Although no textbook mentions Kalergi, his ideas are the guiding principles of the European Union. The belief that the peoples of Europe should be mixed with Africans and Asians, to destroy our identity and create a single mestizo race, is the basis of all community policies that aim to protect minorities. Not for humanitarian reasons, but because of the directives issued by the ruthless Regime that machinates the greatest genocide in history. The Coudenhove-Kalergi European Prize is awarded every two years to Europeans who have excelled in promoting this criminal plan. Among those awarded with such a prize are Angela Merkel and Herman Van Rompuy.

The incitement to genocide, is also the basis of the constant appeals of the United Nations, that demands we accept millions of immigrants to help with the low birth rates of the EU. According to a report published on January 2000 in «Population division» Review of the United Nations in New York, under the title “Immigration replacement: A solution to declining and aging population,” Europe will need by 2025 159,000,000 migrants.

One could wonder how there can be such accuracy on the estimates of immigration, although it was not a premeditated plan. It is certain that the low birth rate could easily be reversed with appropriate measures to support families. It is just as clear that it is the contribution of foreign genes do not protect our genetic heritage, but that it enables their disappearance. The sole purpose of these measures is to completely distort our people, to turn them into a group of people without national, historical and cultural cohesion. In short, the policies of the Kalergi plan was and still is, the basis of official government policies aimed at genocide of the Peoples of Europe, through mass immigration. G. Brock Chisholm, former director of the World Health Organization (OMS), proves that he has learned the lesson of Kalergi well when he says: “What people in all places have to do is to limit of birthrates and promote mixed marriages (between different races), this aims to create a single race in a world which will be directed by a central authority. ”

Conclusions

If we look around us, the Kalergi plan seems to be fully realized. We face Europe’s fusion with the Third World. The plague of interracial marriage produces each year thousands of young people of mixed race: “The children of Kalergi». Under the dual pressures of misinformation and humanitarian stupefaction, promoted by the MSM, the Europeans are being taught to renounce their origin, to renounce their national identity.

The servants of globalization are trying to convince us that to deny our identity, is a progressive and humanitarian act, that “racism” is wrong, because they want us all to be blind consumers. It is necessary, now more than ever, to counter the lies of the System, to awaken the revolutionary spirit Europeans. Every one must see this truth, that European Integration amounts to genocide. We have no other option, the alternative is national suicide.

Translator’s note: Although the reasons due to which Kalergi made the choices he made are of no particular interest to us, we will try to answer a question that will surely our readers have already asked: Why a European aristocrat with Flemish, Polish, Greek-Byzantine roots and even with some samurai blood in his veins (from his mother) was such body plans and organ in the hands of dark forces? The reasons, in our opinion, are multiple, idiosyncratic, psychological and … women.

Also the quote from Prof Noel Ignatiev (Sept-Oct 2002, Harvard Magazine):

“The goal of abolishing the white race is, on the face of it, so desirable that some may find it hard to believe that it could incur any opposition other than from committed white supremacists …. Make no mistake about it: we intend to keep bashing the dead white males, and the live ones, and the females too, until the social construct known as “the white race” is destroyed.

It should also be noted that Angela Merkel and Herman van Rompouy have both received the Coudenhove-Kalergi Prize. It also explodes any myth that Germany is in any way apologetic for what occurred in WW1 and WW2. It was planned and deliberate in the same way as her call for these invaders to come to Germany.

Germany may have a problem with breeding, but the same is not true for the Visigrad Four countries whose populations continue to flourish.

Lies, More Lies and Damned Statistics …

It is becoming clear that our European Members of Parliament are now preparing the ground for the implementation of TTIP at the end of December and it is very interesting to watch this from a distance (in other words I’m not involved in having to directly implement this piece of legislation, although will be affected by it).

I have watched various discussion forums on social media between European and American luminaries nobody has ever heard of, but who are clearly implicated in the drawing up, agreement and, in their respective countries, implementation of these trade agreements and it is very clear that the US has no intention of meeting European social standards, but fully expects Europe to abandon generations of hard-fought and won rights that lead to a cohesive, peaceful and dignified way of life for all European citizens and extend those same rights to its own citizens.

In the last couple of weeks there have been riots in France against the proposals being pushed forward by the French President Francois Hollande, to substantially dilute workers rights and protections. It is widely known that workers in France enjoy some of the most detailed and protected rights of workers anywhere around the world. Clearly this is seen as an impediment to corporate interests being promoted by the likes of David Cameron on behalf of the US Government, who see that workers have no rights and can and should be hired and fired at the will of corporations as and when it suits them. So Hollande has declared that he will push through so-called “reforms” that will make life easier for corporations and to hell with protections for working people.

What is interesting is how quickly, decisively and determined European governments are when implementing legislation that will so quickly downgrade workers rights when for months on end these same politicians have sat on their hands and pleading impotence during the invasion of middle eastern “refugees” last year. The word that comes to mind is hypocrisy.

I think it is becoming very clear that the driving force for the destruction of Europe has been the USA through its mouthpiece of the UK. David Cameron is clearly a very dangerous proponent of US policies as he is part of the Rothschild family. Yes, the same Rothschild banking dynasty that has led to the collapse of economies around the world. It is also becoming clear that the fears of ordinary people regarding what TTIP means for millions of ordinary Europeans are well founded.

The politicians can be ignored as they all have vested interests in getting TTIP to be accepted by the European parliaments and national governments. Once these have gone through the legislature these same politicians will make their homes in “safe havens” where they will never be affected by the consequences of their decisions.

The tactic of taking out the biggest “obstacle” to getting TTIP through Europe and its member countries is absolutely classic. Once the largest “obstacle” has been removed, other countries will follow suit and all the blood that was spilled during WW1 and WW2 to protect ordinary people from tyranny will have been for nothing.

Like many Europeans I was born a free person. I grew up and was educated as a free person. I was never asked by a government anywhere in the world whether I would agree to become enslaved either through debt or by having my rights taken away from me. Rights that were fought for by previous generations. The right to vote, to a private life, to clean, safe drinking water, proper healthcare, good quality education, safe food, the right to earn a living wage and be treated as a human being rather than a “thing” that could be used and abused at the will of other people. My experience is common among so many people living today and yet under the guise of democracy this is what is happening under our noses right now.

This is too important to ignore and is intertwined with what is going on around the world in politics. The push against Russia, setting up NATO bases in Europe, encouraging the despotic Turkish government who in turn blackmails Germany that it will stem the flow of “refugees” in return for money and visa free access into Europe. All this because the USA is broker than broke and wants to exports it’s nightmare vision of what life should be like around the world.

You only have to look at reports on social media and non-western news sites to see that the USA isn’t a place any sane person would want to visit, never mind stay in for any length of time. And yet, there are those countries who would want to emulate that kind of life that divides, segregates, discriminates and leads to eternal poverty for its people with no hope of getting out. Then you need to ask yourself, “is this the kind of life I would want for myself, my family and friends?”. The answer you give yourself should inform the choices you make.

Europe is not a utopia, there are problems here as well, but “refugees” aside, we all get along well and co-operate with each other as we understand we all gain much more from each other when we co-operate than when we do not. There is so much to defend at this point in our lives that not standing up for our rights is unthinkable.

At the risk of being inflammatory, it is clear to me that these so-called “trade agreements”  being pushed forward by the USA are nothing more than Obama’s legacy of enslaving all white people as payback for the slave trade that was predominant from 15th to 19th Centuries inclusive.   This is both childish and unproductive.   None of us can change the past and we should not be held accountable for the sins of our fathers.  We do have control over what the future will be, and that is try to make life better for ALL PEOPLE regardless of race or religion.   That is the future, not petty, small-minded getting-your-own-back-because-I-can thinking.   All that does is drag everyone down to your level.  Obama’s legacy is that he has ensured the only black people that will ever enter the White House after his presidency, will be those that clean the offices and toilets.

The protests in France should be supported as they are the gold standard for workers across the world. If the French government capitulates, then what follows will be no less than what governments around the world deserve. It will also be the tipping point where Brexit will become a reality and the demise of the EU will follow shortly thereafter.

Hypocrites and Politics, How Far Have We Come?

Here in the UK we’ve had our regional local elections for those councillors who sit on local councils and make decisions about what services each region gets, how much residents and local businesses have to pay towards those and how these are going to be administered. In London we’ve also had our London Mayoral elections. We now have our first Muslim mayor in Sadiq Khan and I hope he will make a good mayor, although I didn’t vote for him as I wasn’t impressed in how the two main candidates for this position handled themselves.

It was basically a re-run of last year’s general elections of the usual punch and judy Westminster knock about stuff (watch it on YouTube, it makes the UK a laughing stock) and it actually got quite nasty with the Tory candidate Zac Goldsmith calling Sadiq all sorts of names, very unbecoming.

Coming hot on the heels of the allegations of anti-semitism that have surfaced in the last few days from the Tories it seems hypocritical that it’s perfectly alright for a jew like Goldsmith to plumb the depths of racism against gentils and muslims, but if there is anything approaching observation or criticism of jews it’s suddenly labelled anti-semitism. That’s the pot calling the kettle black.

It appears that Jewish people are allowed to use the accusation of anti-semitism as a get out of jail card that avoids them having to face unpalatable truths about their own behaviour and shut down any arguments that they should behave in a more civilised manner towards each other and the rest of the world. If it is unacceptable for non jews to use the hollocaust to explain their thinking (as Ken Livingstone did), it is equally unacceptable for jews to do the same. However historical facts are just that, facts that cannot be changed nor airbrushed just because it doesn’t suit one side or the other. History is there so we can learn from it so we don’t make the same mistakes.

Furthermore if jews do not like descriptions or criticisms, however light or harsh of their behaviours they should not engage in those behaviours in the first place. Jewish people are not absolved from bad behaviour because of what happened 80 years ago any more than Catholic priests are absolved from child abuse because of what early Christians went through 2,000 years ago.

If we agree that we are a civilised society then we must ALL behave with a sense of fairness and integrity towards each other and ourselves, uphold the standards we set ourselves and not engage in behaviour that undermines those goals.  Here endeth the lesson.

A Small Chink of Light at the End of the Tunnel

I know I don’t have a great many readers but find it uncanny that shortly after my plea for EU ministers to grow a spine and stand up to US bullying, the French foreign tradee minister Mattias Fekl has called a halt to any further negotiations with America on TTIP. I cannot tell you how happy that makes me. Now that the suspicions of so many ordinary people have been shown to be true, that it is a bad deal for the ordinary people of Europe and bad for European businesses, I can only hope that this lone voice is one of many that will spread across the European continent and across Brussels.

This is one area we cannot and should not be bullied into. This is nothing less than the utter subjugation of people who have been borne free and lived lives as honestly as they and their circumstances permitted, for this abomination of an “agreement” to be foisted on us by unscrupulous politicians only interested in feathering their own nests and profiting from ordinary citizens’ misery is beyond the pale. Angela Merkel should be ashamed of herself. It is quite clear that the EU is the pet project of Germany and they seem to think they will run Europe as they see fit.

There is nothing of any value to Europe or Europeans in TTIP. Everything our fathers and grandfathers fought for in the last century is being dismantled in the name of greed and profit and under TTIP this would be eradicated from our history, our lives would become to resemble something from the 17th Century, if not worse.

There has been a disconnect between politicians and voters in recent years, with quite a few displaying psychopathic tendencies where they don’t care about the impact on ordinary people, only how it affects them, the image they are projecting. It is taking a Frenchman to show some steel and say there is something very wrong with TTIP. Thank you Mr Fekl, your honesty is appreciated and applauded. Please continue your work and garner support across Europe so that other politicians can also come to this common-sense approach that Europe is in danger of being wiped out, not by war or sickness, but by treaty from a country thousands of miles away who is not a friend to us anymore.

We must reinstate relations with Russia at the earliest opportunity to ensure our future economic well being and also that we can continue to mutually benefit each other. We must also align ourselves more closely with the BRICS countries as this is the future. Only by doing this can we be sure of ensuring our way of life as Europeans is maintained and improved.

TTIP and all it stands for must be resisted as it does not serve small and medium businesses and it certainly does not serve ordinary people. If America wants to have a scorched earth policy it can do so inside its own borders, but it does not have the right to violate the earth everywhere else.

The Last Farewell?

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

The Black Emperor is currently on a farewell trip to some of the key posts of the American Empire, Saudi Arabia (oil), Germany (military bases) and the UK (military bases & EU go-between) before handing the keys to the White House to someone else to mess things up further. Except he’s not an Emperor, just behaves like one.

In each of the above countries he’s shown where the real powers and problems in the world lie at the present time. Saudi Arabia is they key strategic ally so far as oil is concerned and also the eyes and ears in the Middle East where in the last 8 years there has been so many problems, uprisings, instability all feeding into the “refugee crisis” we have at present. The fact that Obama is so happy to help his Muslim brothers in their objective to swamp Christian Europe with so many Muslims who will impose their way of life on everyone else to the detriment of our own way of life is something we need to be very aware of and worried about.

Germany is so utterly lame. On the one hand Germans have this idea that they are somehow superior to everyone else in Europe and this gives them the right to bully, harass, discriminate against anyone they like, but on the other hand are supine in their willingness to take orders from another, larger country. After all, they will always be able to complain that “they were only following orders” just like they did after WW2. A good example is the unwillingness to reinstate trading relations with Russia despite Russia having fulfilled the criteria both in letter and spirit of the Minsk Agreement because the US doesn’t want it. It’s quite happy to see Europe go down the tubes financially so that it will be more compliant in accepting TTIP.

The UK has always had, and continues to have a colonialist mentality. Partly this is to do with its position as an island, partly to do with its history. In this it has been invaluable to the USA in being able to draw on past lessons in how to build an empire, but is now accelerating the downward spiral into a despot nation. This suits the purpose of keeping people stupid and uninformed (the real reason why governments want control of social media).

Obama’s visit is almost like a visit from the British royal family when they go to visit places such as New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the West Indies, India and so on, but in reverse. Weird.

I should imagine Obama is now putting what he calls “face time” to the finalities of the TTIP package in the EU and was very kind in letting us know that this is very much something that is in the US interests and the UK should continue to be part of the EU for that purpose. Its also very obvious that the “special relationship” so often talked about whenever US officials come over is only special so long as the UK remains useful to the US.

From the beginning I have said that any agreement that is being discussed in so much secrecy by governments cannot be a good thing for ordinary people. The fact that even the results of referenda are in danger of being completely ignored by politicians (as is the case in the recent Dutch referendum of whether to accept Ukraine as part of the EU) is worrying. It seems politicians have an idea of where they see the world going but are deliberately excluding the rest of us from negotiations and discussions, are so willing to bend over backwards to accommodate what will be lower standards, ordinary people have every right to be suspicious. This will not be a good thing for any of us. Ordinary people will be presented with a fait accompli and have no choice but to accept it.

That there are so many scare scenarios that are feeding through whether we leave or remain in the EU the most positive thing, so far as I can see, is that American interests will no longer have any forum either in the EU or in the UK. At a single stroke the UK will have done the world a favour.

The other troubling problem is Turkey. Turkey has not even been given rights to travel abroad and already Erdogan has called on Muslims in Rotterdam to report “any messages from people who are insulting our president, the Turkish nation or Turkey in general.” If this is happening at such an early stage they will completely take over the EU at the expense of Christians in the EU once granted the ability to travel wherever they want in the EU. In fact I will go so far as to say the reason they want this to be granted by the summer this year is so they can send all the refugees into Europe with valid papers and there is nothing the EU will be able to do about it.

The “refugee crisis” is not what it purports to be. Fighting in Syria stopped a month ago so why are people still coming? Surely the best thing is for them to return and build their own countries again? Many of those coming are from countries not in conflict, they just want to come in and impose their way of life on the rest of us. What they are unable to understand is the reason why their own countries are in such dire straights is because Muslims are incapable of living peacefully with each other. If they are not able to do this with their own kind how on earth do they expect to live peacefully among people with different cultures, religions and backgrounds?

Whilst there are many positive reasons to remain in the EU, the fact that TTIP is going forward at such a pace and in such a manner that ordinary people are disenfranchised from what is going on. That Turkey has to be bribed to take these pretend “refugees” to prevent them from swamping us is going to be a huge headache for Europe which has to close its borders now. At the present time I am still minded to vote to leave for the greater and more personal good.

Brexit, To Remain or Go?

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

There seems to be a lot of speculation on both sides of the argument of whether to vote to remain in the EU or leave and each side seems to have an agenda from politicians who simply cannot be trusted to do the right thing for the UK or its people, only to line their own pockets with taxes taken from hard working people and sell off every possible asset this country has, to corporations who are keen to exploit the same hardworking people by paying them next to nothing, in fact nothing at all if they get their own way for the ever-decreasing profits being chased currently by just about anyone who has a modicum of interest in the stock market.

In the last month or so the Leave campaign has been the most vociferous and passionate, but I have to say that against the backdrop of Cameron & Osborn’s tax evasion escapades (even though both seem to be in the Remain camp) I simply don’t trust either of them so far as I could throw them.   The remain campaign has been lukewarm in its arguments and not particularly convincing either, preferring to answer some of the more outlandish claims made by the Leave camp.

Just about every conceivable ill is blamed on Brussels, I would even go so far as to say that even bad weather would also be blamed on Brussels and that if we leave it would suddenly be sunny every day until Christmas.

However, I think the most convincing, factual argument not to remain comes from  a former Tory chancellor Nigel Lawson in his Chatham House speech two months ago which is accessible on YouTube.  In it he gives a clear, lucid explanation of Britain’s role in the world at the time the EMU (European Monetary Union) was being implemented which preceded the ill-fated Euro when our trade links stretched across the world.  Not being in the EU would mean we could resume our membership of the WTO (World Trade Organisation) and renew links with previous trading partners New Zealand and Australia both countries provided us with stellar produce and I’m sure would do so again.

I am not someone given to speculation, supposition and the like but want to know more about the probabilities of what may occur.   I am old enough to remember when people in the UK first voted to join the EEC as it was then, although as an 15 year old I can only vaguely remember some things such as food was cheaper, there were plenty of jobs around, many were skilled but not massively well paid and the food was just plain boring.

Fast forward 40-odd years on and we enjoy much better food, easy to get hold of ingredients in our local supermarkets and shops, better standards of living, the ability to improve our living conditions if we adopt European house building models which are more energy efficient and sustainable to build and live in.  More and easier access to jobs abroad and yes, the argument that there may be some migrants who travel to the UK and have access to our benefits system, but is also works the other way around.  If you are unable to get a job in the UK but a firm in France, Spain, Italy, Denmark, Germany or any of the other EU countries will give you a job and relocate you, you are also able to access their benefits system, albeit after a qualifying period in many cases.

We also enjoy cheaper travel to European countries without any hassles, bring back duty-free goods to a greater level than was previously allowed.  We can even access almost free healthcare if we fall ill or have an accident whilst on holiday abroad (so long as you have completed the correct forms before travelling).

Furthermore the social aspect of being in the EU shouldn’t go unacknowledged.  The Working Time Directive which is in danger of being eradicated by TTIP and also our Tory government is a blessing.   It was the normal practice for junior doctors to work 100 hours a week and not unheard of for wrong doses of medication to be administered, the wrong diagnoses to be made from sheer lack of sleep.   The prevailing attitude among consultant doctors at the time was “Well I had to do it, so they should as well”.   Old people now benefit from higher pensions as a result of the social reforms that are standard in the EU.  The British government of all shades are obsessed by the idea that if you are old and infirm the remainder of your life should be spent in poverty not being able to heat your home and eat but having to choose between the two.  Any concessions gained by old people are also in the process of being taken back by the government while they hide their wealth in off-shore funds avoiding paying tax.

Children’s toys and equipment are also safer as a result of the EU directives on materials, lead-free paint and other components used in their manufacture.  These are changes to be applauded and we have and continue to benefit from them.

What has to be remembered is that many of those in the Leave camp already have plans that will not benefit the ordinary working people one little jot.  We would be catapulted to the age of the workhouse for the old, poor and destitute, the NHS would certainly be dismantled whereas even under TTIP the NHS does have a letter of comfort that excludes it from being sold off.
I have said this before, with the changes that have been flooding in over since last summer, we have been given a glimpse into just how undemocratic the EU really is, how it is run for the benefit for the few at present, rather than for the many, and how EU bearaucracts are impervious to how much they are hurting poorer countries.   This is mainly being caused by two particular villains, Germany and US meddling in Europe.

Germany has been under occupation since WW2, there has been a military presence there which in recent years has been reduced in number.   Because of the presence of the US Germany is bound to take “advice” from the US on certain matters.   The worst mistake Germany, and indeed the rest of the EU made was to impose sanctions against Russia.   This is the main cause of the EU economy tanking in the last couple of years.   Russia has implemented all of the requirements asked of it in the Minsk Agreement, Ukraine has not, but Russia is still being punished for Ukraine’s mistakes.   In fact the EU is serious considering admitting Ukraine into the EU as a full member.   This is a huge mistake and one that will guarantee the fall of the EU as an entity.  Ukraine is so broke it makes Greece look positively solvent by comparison.   If the EU has wobbled because of the Greek deficit last year, it would certainly implode on admitting Ukraine to the EU.  Ukraine’s debts and size are much bigger and the Ukrainians are, by and large, an agrarian country with few resources.  It would be like putting money into a bottomless piggy bank and it would simply disappear.

EU politicians really must grow a spine and tell the US to butt out of EU affairs, reinstate relations with Russia forthwith as it is the only way to restore the fortunes of all parties concerned.

Furthermore the EU must ditch TTIP, CETA and other such “free trade agreements” as they serve nobody but US interests alone.  We have all been born free people and are not to be give or sold into slavery to corporate interests.  The EU must also examine it’s own attitudes to member nations.   Currently there is a spat going on about Poland’s newly elected government and the Polish constitution which is heading in the wrong direction.  Hardly any mention is being made of the deal between Merkel and the Turkish President Erodigan.

Merkel is happy to hang out a German comedian to dry by using an ancient German law forbidding ridiculing foreign politicians but so quick to point out Poland’s faults.   Surely free speech is free speech wherever it is uttered.   If Turkey wants to be part of the EU it must accept that we have free speech here and it is absolutely correct for politicians and their beliefs to be ridiculed and told they are on the wrong path, otherwise we have a dictatorship not a democracy.    I don’t care about offending other people sensibilities when it comes to expressing my point of view, it is my point of view and my right to say so.  I do care about being told I cannot give my point of view because it offends someone else’s point of view, especially when they are a pathetic despot who locks up journalists because he doesn’t agree with them.  What is allowed for one side is certainly allowed for the other.

The Nature of Politicians and Politics

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

Why is it that the only sorts of people who get elected into high positions in politics happen to be those who are psychopaths who aren’t particularly bright people? I refer to politicians across the world not just those who are parading themselves around in the USA for elections in November. The only sane politician in the US is Bernie Sanders. He is the only person who talks like a normal person and is interested in the plight of the common people. Hillary Clinton has been bought by the establishment as is Donald Trump, even though he is funding his own campaign, they both want the same things just in a different form.

The Donald’s latest pronouncement that Europe and the UK are not safe places for American’s to travel in is absolutely correct. The reason for this is that America alone has forced policies upon the rest of the world that have been to the detriment of those countries and have made them less safe than they were previously.

Having said all of the above, here in the UK we have our own problems with the Tory party who are no better than football yobs and have the same sensibilities, busily stuffing their pockets with the taxes being collected for just about every activity you can think of, even some you can’t, while telling the electorate there isn’t enough money to pay off the massive deficit that has been accumulated in 6 years of proper fiscal management by the Tories themselves. I just wonder who they think they’re kidding. I don’t think I can remember a government who have had a declaration of no confidence in the same year they were elected, but David Cameron managed to achieve that particular accolade.

Angela Merkel is another politician not fit for the office she holds either. Merkel “Mrs Bossyboots” was very keen to tell the Greeks they must pay back what they owe to the Troika and not leave the EU, then she invites the hoards of refugees, some genuine, others not so, into Germany declaring at the same time that other EU countries must also take a share of these terrorists. Merkel then goes to Erdogen to bribe this madman with 6billion Euros to keep the muslim “refugees” who are not genuine in Turkey. It’s been known for months that Turkey is an ISIS stronghold and the gateway through which ISIS has been able to transport oil, thereby getting funding for their terrorist activities. This is something Europeans are supposed to accept in its entirety.

The craziest thing is that Merkel also bows to Washington when it comes to sanctions against Russia. When sanctions were first put in place against Russia I said it would mainly hurt Europe as Russia is the largest trading partner for Europe. Each time the deadline has come and gone to re-evaluate the sanctions, Washington has said “no” and Merkel, Hollande, et al have cowed and agreed to this.

What is particularly galling is Hillary Clinton’s announcement last week that she thinks Europe should clear up the mess made by America and the policies that were engineered by Hillary Clinton herself. She made it very clear on many occasions that she wanted regime change in Syria, wanted to oust Assad and put some puppet in his place. I seriously don’t understand why there isn’t a single politician with the balls to tell America to get lost and leave well alone. America should look at its own backyard before it starts telling everyone else how we should live and I honestly hope that enough Americans are able to see through the vaccuousness that is Hillary Clinton and vote for Bernie Sanders.

Here in the UK I certainly will be voting for Jeremy Corbyn when elections next come round and this may come soon than anyone thinks, particularly when the results come through and there is a vote to leave the EU. That it will break up the EU much sooner than will otherwise happen is probably no bad thing. It will mean that European countries can then regroup, probably along historical alliances and in 20-30 years some other kind of European alliance can be forged, one that is looser and does not require a superstate to be cobbled together, but one that does share a common purpose (which has always been evident) and where the Germans do not play such a dominant role, which is to everyone’s detriment.

Brexit, TTIP & All That

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

After months of wrangling with EU officials about getting a supposed better deal for the UK, now the scare tactics are being brought into play pretty much as David Cameron did when we had the Scottish Referendum.  Everyone from the UK military, Businesses, Bank of England, neighbour’s cat, the man down the road is telling UK voters how to vote and putting the arguments for and against.

So far those against remaining in the EU outnumber those wanting to stay, whether they will vote as such remains to be seen and it maybe that events take a different turn that will ensure that there may not even be an EU to vote about in the coming months.

Pressures about the influx of Arabic/moslem migrants entering Europe are putting resources under increasing strain, not to mention the tensions between two very different cultures clashing.  Ongoing austerity for the sake of austerity is also coming under increasing tension as the commodities markets, shares and bonds are in ever greater flux with those in the banking industry chasing fewer and fewer returns, nobody with any sense is actually buying property at present unless it is going to be the “forever home” (i.e. you intend to stay there for many years to come), both politicians and financiers alike increasingly resemble  rabbits captivated by strong headlights with no idea which way to turn and you have a recipe that dictates that something will just have to give sooner rather than later.  Nothing and nobody can live under such pressure indefinitely.

David Cameron is trotting out his favourite line about how UK security is reliant on remaining in the EU and also how imperative it is that the UK renews Trident.  Enter the most sensible politician the UK has ever produced, Jeremy Corbyn who argues and even demonstrates against renewing Trident.

It seems that the main player in the UK and EU dictating a disasterous foreign policy in both places is the good old US of A.   The Pentagon this week announced a further $582bn to be spent in Europe.  This is a massive quadrupling of the existing budget currently.  They obviously think things are going to kick off in Europe and that if the EU disbands we will instantly be at each others throats.   Somehow I don’t think so.   If anything, over the last 60 or so years the EEC as it was then has done us all a great favour.  We’ve got to know each other rather better than we had previously, people from all over Europe are happy to holiday in  France, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Austria, Czech Republic and so on and I’m pretty sure that even if the EU were to collapse under the present strains there would not be an outbreak of war immediately nor in the near future.

No, the biggest threat to world safety is the USA itself.  The neverending war machine that just rachets up more and more spending on killing human beings while its own citizens are made homeless, denied healthcare and free, good quality education and supporting (financially as well as equipment and training) of mercenaries and terrorist groups such as IS, ISIS, ISIL or what ever they want to call themselves this week.

By not renewing Trident the UK will save itself an estimated £170 billion which would be better spent on more and improved housing, schools and healthcare.  That’s just in the UK.   The EU and USA have agreed with “written assurances ” that aren’t worth the paper they’re written on that any future US administration won’t spy on EU citizens indiscriminantly.  Facebook and Google will have to abide by these rules as well.   This is an alleged “improvement” of the previously rejected Safe Harbour agreement.   This, together with the proposed TTIP and continued support of the now discredited Ukraine government gives some idea into the real reason for the war in the Ukraine in 2014/15.  The reason being that Ukraine as a lot of land and a largely agrarian culture, perfect for the likes of Monsanto to come along and not just gift (no, that would be too generous) but loan poor farmers money to buy the seeds that they would then have to repay and of course, being poor they could never repay, but it would kill everything on the land including native flora, fauna and insects leaving a poisoned land and hungry, impoverished people.   Together with the most disastrous foreign policy interference the US has imposed on Europe forcing the EU to impose sanctions on Russia, our biggest trading partner and you get an idea of how far the USA is prepared to go to get what it wants by simply bullying a supposedly large block of countries into doing what it wants.  Angela Merkel hasn’t told Obama to get lost and is quite happy to be a part of the demise of Europe.   It seems the Germans, this time backed by the USA quite openly can’t stop themselves from bossing everyone else around while looking terribly smug themselves, regardless of how much it hurts their neighbours.

I think the best thing to do is look at American society, how divided it is, how it has reduced its people to brain dead zombies who just eat McDonalds, fried chicken and watch TV all day and then go and kill anyone they disagree with.  Is that the kind of society we want to live in?  Yes, I know there is tiny bit of exaggeration there, but from the outside looking in, that’s what it looks like, it’s just not the kind of place I want to have the rest of the world turn into.

What happens when the rest of the world has been trashed like America has been?  When everyone in the world has been neutered so they are unable to think for themselves?  Humanity is on a hiding to nothing if that’s where we’re all headed.  It offers NOTHING for people who just want to live peacefully, make a contribution to the society they live in and mind their own business.

If the UK does not renew Trident the UK will be free from US interference in our foreign policy, if the EU stops taking funds from the USA and kicks out the IMF then even without its bloated institution the countries in Europe will still do well, probably even better.   After all, everyone points to Iceland who didn’t follow the advice of austerity back in 2007 when the Icelandic banks Kaupthing, Landsbanki and Glitnir, were allowed to go to the wall, bankers were jailed for their part in it and now it is a thriving economy.   This is in stark contrast to the rest of Europe which is struggling and even the most ardent supporter of this austerity madness “Dr Death” Shauble acknowledges that the chickens are coming home to roost.   I am leaning more towards the UK leaving Europe and doubt it will be as stark as it is portrayed to be so.

Yes there are advantages to remaining in Europe such as workers rights, closer ties with our nearest neighbours, but not under the present system which has outgrown its natural lifespan.

Afterthoughts on the EU Deal

democratic rights, European Commission, European Commission; trade agreements; environmental impact; employment rights; democracy
 The UK State Media aparatus has already rolled into action on David Cameron’s pronouncement of a deal with the EU.  To a certain extent I’m glad my parents aren’t around to witness just how corporatised the world has become, they would certainly be making comparisons with Stalin’s occupation of Europe after WW2 and how every minutiae of daily living was absolutely controlled by the State, but I digress.
The BBC are proclaiming a “victory” over europe, the Telegraph is a little more balanced and the Guardian seems rather disinterested having only talked about four main items discussed, that of the four year freeze on in-work benefits EU citizens would have to remain in employment before being allowed to claim any benefits.   Transfer of child benefits to those countries WITHIN the EU (remember part of the deal of being a member of the EU is that if people migrate for work or relocate they are entitle to the benefits of that country as they would in their own), being able to stall any regulations coming into force in concert with other countries, but not stop them (so no change there then) and exemption from “ever closer union” with the EU.
Governments of both Tory and Labour have each been supine to the interests of the USA and have deliberately diverted attention away from their own shortcomings blaming migrants, immigrants and refugees for the state that the UK finds itself over the last 20 or so years, that people actually believe what they are told.   Thatcher said that if you tell a lie often enough it will eventually be believed, this is what’s happened here.
If immigration is really an issue in Britain then why have the Tories cut back on the amount of immigration officers at the borders?  At present immigration policies can be co-ordinated between EU countries quite quickly, I doubt France would be so co-operative in Calais once the UK has decided to take up the drawbridge.   There is a part of me that thinks that the political machinery of the EU has made politicians in each country lazy and unable to implement policies that would benefit each country individually.   “Someone else will take care of it” seems to be the attitude.   It would explain why so many politicians are brain-dead mediocrities who are only interested in furthering their own careers rather than making a difference to the people who elected them into their positions.  There are very few politicians who have a vision of any sort, those who have in recent years and months emerged (and I’m talking about Nigel Farage of UKIP and even Donald Drumpf in the USA) are actually more divisive and would make the world a lot more dangerous than it is now.   Calling a spade a spade is fine when you’re down the pub with a few like-minded mates, its something else when you’re  advocating banning all foreigners, building walls to keep them out and returning the UK back to how it was in the 1970s.   Those are the kinds of policies guaranteed to turn a country into just another backwater one horse town nobody wants to associate themselves with.
In trying to imagine how the UK would be in 12 months time I’m thinking that imported food from abroad will be more expensive so we can say goodbye to all those lovely treats we take for granted.  Going on holiday to Spain, France or Italy (the usual popular holiday destinations) wouldn’t be so easy.  There would be visas to complete months ahead of the holidays, long queues at the airports, a limit on what can be brought back to the UK and I’m sure a whole host of other rules and regulations as to what is and isn’t permitted.   Any idea of just hopping on a plane for a weekend break would simply be unheard of.   The plus point would be that UK farmers would benefit as food production would have to increase to feed the population adequately.  This in itself would raise food prices since farmers would want the best prices for their produce.
However, the thing that weighs most on the minds is TTIP.  As I’ve said before many of the politicians in Brussels have been bought off, threatened with blackmail and genuinely will accept the agreement even though many people in Europe oppose it.   Although TTIP will be approved in Europe, when the UK quits it will not be a part of this but I don’t for a moment doubt that Cameron has something quite similar in mind for the British people which is why he is so busy trying to sell off the NHS, throw the young, old, poor and vulnerable out of social housing so his mates can makes massive profits without having invested a single penny.  If these groups of people die, so what they deserve it, Right?  Just goes to show the lack of any kind of humanity these rich, privileged people have.
There is also another scenario which will run in tandem and that is that as the UK leaves, so other coutries who are becoming tired of being dictated to by Germany, particularly over the migrant issue will decide they can take matters into their own hands and deal between like-minded neighbours.
As the reality of what TTIP really means dawns on each country, there will be a stampede for the exit door and Germany can be the only person at it’s own party, just so long as it is realised that as each country exits so the funds that go into the common pot for pilfering by MEPs will also reduce.   There is no point in contributing to a  political (or insurance) scheme that is worthless.
I think to a certain extent this entire scenario has been engineered as I wondered why a couple of years ago the EU was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.   It has brought peace, but now the USA has decided it wants to start WW3 so the EU must disintegrate.   The danger then is that each country would be played against each other.  Those of us who have lived with the EU as an entity have learned about our neighbours and find no real enmity with them.  However with the Visigrad Four countries, their wounds are still healing, the sores have crusted over but the memories remain.  Those are the countries that require the most help and assistance not to give into the fears of invasion and subsumation that took place in the past.   This is where it is important to confront the ghosts of the past, reconcile with what is really happening at present and deal with the reality now rather than what happened in the past.
Jednak rzeczą, która najbardziej waży na głowach jest TTIP. Jak już wcześniej powiedziałem wielu polityków w Brukseli zostały zakupione off, grozi szantażem i rzeczywiście będzie zaakceptować umowę, mimo że wiele osób w Europie jest mu przeciwna. Chociaż TTIP zostanie zatwierdzony w Europie, kiedy w Wielkiej Brytanii zostanie zamknięty to nie będzie częścią tego, ale nie wiem na chwilę wątpliwości, że Cameron ma coś bardzo podobnego w umyśle dla brytyjskich ludzi, dlatego, że jest tak zajęty sprzedać NHS, rzucać młody, stary, słaby i podatny na mieszkania socjalne więc jego koledzy mogą sprawia ogromne zyski bez zainwestował ani grosza. Jeśli te grupy ludzi umiera, więc co oni zasługują na to, prawda? Tylko dowodzi braku jakiegokolwiek człowieczeństwa tych bogatych, uprzywilejowanych ludzie mają.
Istnieje również inny scenariusz, który będzie realizowany w tandemie i to, że w liście w Wielkiej Brytanii, więc inne kraje którzy stają się zmęczeni są podyktowane przez Niemcy, zwłaszcza w kwestii migracyjnych zadecyduje mogą wziąć sprawy w swoje ręce i radzić sobie pomiędzy podobnie myślącymi sąsiadów.
W rzeczywistości to, co TTIP naprawdę oznacza olśni każdego kraju, nie będzie panika do drzwi wyjściowych i Niemiec może być jedyną osobą w jego własnej partii, tylko tak długo, jak to jest realizowane że każdy kraj wychodzi zatem środki, które przejdź do wspólnej puli na kradzieży przez posłów również zmniejszy. Nie ma sensu, przyczyniając się do politycznej (lub ubezpieczeń) programu, który jest bezwartościowy.
Myślę, że w pewnym stopniu cały ten scenariusz został zaprojektowany tak zastanawiałem się, dlaczego pare lat temu Unia Europejska została wyróżniona Pokojową Nagrodą Nobla. To przyniósł spokój, ale teraz USA zdecydowała, że chce rozpocząć WW3 więc UE musi rozpadać. Zagrożenie jest więc, że każdy kraj będzie grał przeciwko siebie. Ci z nas, którzy żyli z UE jako podmiot dowiedział się o naszych sąsiadów i znaleźć żadnej realnej wrogość wobec nich. Jednak z Visigrad Cztery kraje, ich rany wciąż się ran, owrzodzenia są skorupą ponad ale wspomnienia pozostają. Są to kraje, które potrzebują najwięcej pomocy i wsparcia, aby nie dać się obawom inwazji i subsumation, które miały miejsce w przeszłości. To jest, gdzie ważne jest, aby zmierzyć się z duchami przeszłości, pogodzić z tym, co naprawdę dzieje się w chwili obecnej i radzić sobie z rzeczywistością, teraz, zamiast tego, co wydarzyło się w przeszłości.

Chicken Brain or Intelligent Homo Sapiens?

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

It seems that not just in Europe but across the world we are being increasingly told that in order for countries to survive those with a lower population must accept more people from abroad and not to do so labels those countries, their people and governments as backward and racist.   This is a subject that has been mired in misinformation and childish cat-calling which diverts attention from the reality of the matter.

After WW2 there was a “baby boom”, except in what are now called the Visigrad Four countries who were still under the yoke of communism.  From the 1970s onwards we in Europe have been repeatedly told there are too many people on this planet and we need to curtail the amount of babies each family have.   To this end women have enjoyed emancipation, contraception and the ability to choose if, as and when to have children.  Some women have had babies, raised their families and others have chosen to pursue a career.  We are now at a point where such choices no longer attract opinions as it is accepted women make a profound contribution to the workplace, but there is a fly in the ointment.

Women live longer than men, the majority of care still falls to women although men are also in this position.  In the interests of equality the retirement age for women was raised a few years ago so that many women now have to wait until they are 66 before being able to claim the state pension in the UK.
The Tory Party loves to paint itself as the Party of the Family and yet in the last 6 years and before that when Margaret Thatcher was PM, the Tories have torn families apart and undermined what small gains they managed to get in order to fulfil their ideological goals.

If the retirement age was reduced to 64 for both men and women then you would have proper equality.   Those OAPs (Old Age Pensioners) who felt able to work could do so, but it would free up work places for younger people and would allow grandparents to care for younger relatives if they were able to.  This would be such a saving to the government and would also bring more cohesion to family life in the UK.

The current situation in Europe regarding the Syrian immigration is also another fly  in the ointment.   Germany has a low population because the Germans aren’t interested in having children.  By contrast those former Soviet countries – Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia, but particularly Poland, have increased their populations since 1990 and continue to do so.   Angela Merkel is accepting Syrian immigrants into Germany some of whom are genuine, others are not, on the basis that Germany needs immigrant labour in order to keep their economy afloat.   At the same time she is telling the Visigrad Four countries to also accept these immigrants into their countries, all of whom have, quite rightly said “No”.

As I have explained previously here in my blog, these countries recognise this as an invasion of almost military nature.   If the current and future EU is that where “further integration” means subjecting a country to the whims of a single country, then each country has the right to say “thus far and no further”.   Each country is just that, a country in its own right.  Not a state as the USA would have us.  As such each country has the right to decide who it allows into its own borders and under what terms.

However, yet another lie has been exposed for what it is, a lie.   If we need immigrants in order to keep our economies going, then we need indigenous people to have more babies and for the infrastructure of the same to be made available.   Unless, of course, the whole plan is to ensure white Europeans become extinct in place of everybody else!

Forcing mothers to return to work after having babies instead of supporting them at home should never be allowed.  Parents need to be able to have the time to bond with their children and build a family life.   There also needs to be more respect between the genders rather than looking at them as a means to an end.

Despite the Women’s movement in the 1960s and 1970s, contraception and labour-saving devices work practices in the UK have not changed since the 1950s.  Work is still pretty much Monday to Friday 9 to 5 and if you want to get ahead you have to forget you have a family and home and put the hours in.
In order to bring some sanity to the work place I would propose that the working week is no longer than 20 hours in a week on full salary and with holiday, sickness benefits intact.  This would allow people to actually have a life, spend time with friends and family, care for younger or older relatives and more than likely ensure full employment for each country and the economy of each country would rebound.   Now if that was adopted across Europe there would most certainly be a vote to stay in.

David Cameron and THAT Deal

Apologies to all my regular readers, I’ve been away on some personal business which is now (hopefully) sorted out and I should be able to write more regularly.

Well the press in the UK have been frenzied with excitement at the prospect of negotiations between David Cameron and our partners in the EU and it’s very clear that the UK Government branch of the Rothschild dynasty has only been interested in securing jobs and investment in the City of London, bugger the rest of the UK.   What scant information there is at present has changed considerably from what was first presented back in November 2015.

The main points that have been reported are that there will be a limit on the amount of child benefit an EU worker can send back to their home country, equivalent to the amount that would be paid in their home country for the first four years.

There would be an emergency brake on paying benefits to EU migrants if there is a severe (no definition of severe) strains on public services.   Why does Cameron assume everyone is on benefits?  The vast majority of EU migrants, particularly those from what is termed the Visigrad Four countries, that is Hungary, Poland, Czech and Slovakia come to the UK, work hard, pay taxes and do the jobs the English have no interest in doing, but it’s ok for the UK government to take tax off those hard-working Slavs.  How typically xenophobic and small minded of the English.

There is an exclusion from the UK having to integrate any further into the EU, and does not include being part of any future treaties.   A “red card” to slow down any future EU legislation if acting in unison with other EU nations, but no veto to prevent legislation going through.  Having said that he has been given short shrift over the EU Working Time Directive which he wanted to change (presumably so that he could ensure that doctors would work an 100 hour shift every week as they used to before the Directive came into force).  I’m actually glad this wasn’t conceded as there is an enormous battle being played out at present regarding NHS junior doctors.   The Directive has no doubt saved many lives as doctors are no longer tired beyond belief and making mistakes in diagnoses and treatment as they did prior to this piece of legislation.
However one important concession he has managed to get is that the UK will not be part of any further bail-outs for EU countries and if those countries receiving bail outs default the UK won’t be penalised.

Having said all of this I don’t think there has ever been a prime minister who has set the bar for negotiations so low that even the meagre “victories” he has managed to obtain are largely muted and confined to peripheral areas where the EU could actually just throw the odd bone in the hope the English electorate would be happy to settle for so little.  What has to be borne in mind is that the current government of the UK are no better than football yobs with posh accents, and it shows.  They are appealing to the lowest common denominator.

Since the mid-1990s I have observed the UK becoming less and less tolerant of migrants.   This has been strongly encouraged by the popular press who have regularly run stories about “work shy migrants” who are on benefits and  how migrants were bleeding the UK dry.  The scary thing is, the working class English actually believe this, I’m talking about the not very well educated, not well off English who blame migrants for all the ills the politicians have heaped on them.

The question that needs to be asked is if the Tories are so keen to ditch Europe what horrific alternative have they got in store for the UK in the months and years ahead?

We’re pretty much on the same path we were a year ago, at that time people voted for the devil-you-know because the alternative was so bad it couldn’t be considered seriously.  This time there IS an alternative, one we should consider because if we don’t we will slide back into the 1970s and life won’t be so rosy when the Brits decide to holiday in Ibiza, Athens or the Dordoigne and bring back their Duty Free goodies.
