I Want My Country Back!

Leave a comment

With what has been going on here in the United Kingdom currently got me thinking I want my country back especially it’s democracy, freedom of speech and my right of self-determination all of which has been eroded by the government in Westminster in London!

I am starting to question the effectiveness of the Government Westminster and if in it current form it is really relevant to a modern country and even if it is holding back the country as whole!

I am starting to question if both our Royalty and Nobility even have any relevance in a modern country even I they are cost effective and they along with their titles should be abolished once and for all time!

I am starting to question just why we now still hold on to traditions which now have not relevance to our modern multicultural and multi-faith country and it is time we started to create new traditions as we move forward much as we have done through our history!

I want my country back the dynamic, forward looking and a leader in science, education even socially!

I wonder if I am asking too much?

Depression: Living in Fear!

Leave a comment

The one thing depression did to me at it height of its hold on me in my younger days it forced me to live a life of fear of almost everything. The most debilitating fear being the fear to actually have a life itself!

My whole live was coloured by the fears created by my depression to a point I could not function as a human being in so much I’d never say no, do anything new just in case I’d fail or be laughed at and the worse I was afraid that I end up alone so I had to like everyone even if I disliked the person in question.

All made worse I was so afraid I could not even have opinions or beliefs of my own just in case I upset someone else even to a point I end up agreeing with people about things which were against my own view o the world and morals.

All this was very soul destroying and helped to destroy who I was and could be.

But since I finally did something about my depression this fear has melted away leaving only the normal fear everyone has not the unfounded fears the depression gave me. Also I have finally stopped being afraid to voice my opinions even back them up with thought out arguments and most most of all not to be afraid to be wrong and admit when I am!

A Sobering Thought!

Leave a comment

Tonight I am having some very sobering thoughts as it could be the last night I am going to live in the United Kingdom as Scotland votes for independence tomorrow.

But I suspect regardless of what happens tomorrow the United Kingdom especially Scotland will never be the same as north of the boarder people have actually woken up to politics and the fact they live in a democracy where they do have the right to self-determination regardless of what Westminster told them.

So tonight I sit in anticipation of a change in the United Kingdom either way the vote goes tomorrow as the fact it has gone ahead will change the United Kingdom for ever and start to get people as whole to think about how the country is run.

Finally it will be a spring board for people like myself to start to more vocal and open to voice our opinions how the United Kingdom is run and how it should be run in the future!

I Used to Be So Quiet!

Leave a comment

For many years I used to be very quiet and accepted what happened in the world with the same quiet apathy as everyone else but unlike everyone else I had an excuse in so much my depression made me very quiet and self absorbed.

But as I have started to come out of my depression I found my voice and confidence in myself again something I did have when I was idealist in my early 20s at University but unlike last time I have a platform in the form of my blogs and social web sites bar the major ones.

So now many years later I am finally finding my own political views and bias which are mine alone from what fits to my morals and view of the world not that of those people who used to push and brow beat me to believe and think.

Now I am starting to know my own mind and have the confidence to stand behind my views without the fear of people bullying me or making me feel small. Don’t get me wrong I will admit I am wrong and will listen to reasoned arguments against my views but I will not allow people to bully me any more!

I am currently loving the fact that I am got my own voice and mind at last and the guts to stand behind my views even if it is in my own mind some 30 years too late but not too late in reality!

Tomorrow Did Come!

Leave a comment

Tomorrow a real historical event happens here in United Kingdom and we here could be facing a new brave future either as a stronger Union or two Independent Countries with I feel many possibilities and opportunities!

Unlike those in Westminster both within the government/establishment and business I see the vote as an opportunity for us all and first time the people of the United Kingdom even if it is one group of us to determine our own future something they have not allowed us not to do for decades.

It is also shown just how scared those within the government/establishment and business are scared about the fact if the people actually have a choice and determination of their own future to a point they will use bullying and scare tactics to stop people exercising their right of choice and self determination!

Regardless of the outcome of the Scottish Independence vote tomorrow the government/establishment in Westminster and business here in the United Kingdom will not come out smelling of roses as they have shown their true colours in so much the sheer contempt they have for the people of the United Kingdom plus just how remote and out of step they are to the people of the United Kingdom.

Myself we here in the United Kingdom should use the Scottish Vote of Independence as a spring board and rallying point, regardless of the results, to start to demand our country, our self determination and even our democratic right back from a government/establishment and business which has abused our rights as citizens of the United Kingdom in the last 50 years.

It is time we should all question just what right does Westminster government/establishment has to rule the regions of the England, Wales and even Northern Ireland especially if they give Scotland more autonomy.

It is time we as a nation use this opportunity and momentum generated by tomorrow vote to start to question how we are governed, by who and from where. We as a nation should use this vote to wake up and stand up for our own country and rights here in the United Kingdom.

I know this sounds like I am ranting again but I feel it is time we as a nation got up and be counted and we should take imperious of tomorrow and run with it!

What a Shallow World We Live In!

Leave a comment

Today I did my shopping around town which does involve a lot of walking and carrying of stuff so myself and my partner use a wheeled shopping trolley to carry our shopping around town as it makes shopping so much easier for us both. At our end gone are the days when I am being a macho man and killing off my hands and arms trying to hump a load of shopping in my hands.

This to some people out there seams like a very uncool thing to do after all wheeled shopping trolleys are for the old and I was told so by someone at work as I popped in to do something at work which I could not do in the end.

Their remark made me think that who was the bigger fool me pulling a wheeled trolley around or them for making such trivial remark that it did not look cool that I had the trolley with me?

I suspect you know the answer already it was the person who make the remark in so much they put how they looked to other people before simple practicalities of carrying a lot of shopping around town.

It also highlighted just how shallow people have become in our modern world worrying more about how people preceptive them before themselves and comfort.

Then there a people like myself who really care little about what people think about me and put myself and simple practicalities before what people think of me. In the end I tend to be the happier person as I am not worrying about trivial matters of how I am perceived by people and simply get on and enjoy my life happier that I have been truer to myself!

The Sorry State of the Union!

Leave a comment

On September 18th here in the United Kingdom the Scottish will have a referendum asking whether they want independence or not and currently it looks like they will vote for independence!

In the rest of the United Kingdom the only people who seam to be worried about this situation is the government in Westminster, business leaders and establishment in London even to a point they are openly bulling the Scottish not to vote for independence. This is likely to have the opposite effect and push the Scottish to vote for independence as frankly what these people are doing is disgusting and underhand.

Outside of this group no one else in the rest of the United Kingdom seam to simply not care that a union some 300 years old could be broken on 18th September. If anything it is being met by total apathy from the general public who simply don’t care as they do not see it effecting them at all. This really shows just how little the general public of the United Kingdom care for their country and how self centred they have become!

Myself this once again highlights the gap between the government/establishment and the people it serves to a point they put their own self serving and power before the people themselves to a point they will bully people to follow their views. This all made worse by general public whose apathy allows the government/establishment to do this preferring a quiet selfish life regardless of the fact the government/establishment is slowing eroding their freedom and self determination.

My personal view is I hope that Scotland votes for independence as once the effects and realisation of its effects on the United Kingdom will wake up the general public out of their apathy and wake up just how poorly they have been governed by the government/establishment over the years.

After all they have risked the union of the United Kingdom and had the arrogance of believing the Scottish would never vote for independence or think about it. Then because the Scottish had the front to vote for independence they proceeded to bully both the Scottish government and people to stop them voting for independence showing their true colours and contempt of the people they are supposed to serve!

In the end regardless of the outcome of the vote it looks like Scotland will get more autonomy even if it says part of the United Kingdom so for them the vote has become a win win situation and fair play to them as they are an independent nation already be it part of a Union.

The only people who will end up with egg on their faces will be the members of the government/establishment and business who opposed the vote for Scottish Independence who have shown their true colours and contempt they hold for the general public of the United Kingdom in so much they put their own businesses and interests before that of the general public. Also the fact they have bullied and spread scare stories in an effort to scare the Scottish not to vote for independence and the fact they thought bullying was an acceptable behaviour in a modern society. Frankly any bullying is never acceptable at what ever level!

I have a hope that this whole vote wakes up the general public from it’s apathy and once and for all actually look into how they are governed from Westminster and London especially by government/establishment which puts its own interests and power before the people.

Though I suspect the people of the United Kingdom either way will go back to it’s old ways of only caring for themselves and not the country though it would be nice to be proved wrong for once!

Myself after the current behaviour of the government/establishment in Westminster and London has confirmed it it high time there should be a change in the way we are governed and pushing me more in the direction of a Republic and the abolition of the monarchy here in the United Kingdom as it represents a government/establishment which is out of step with the people it serves!
