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!

Where is Mr Cameron’s Big Society?

Leave a comment

One question I have to ask our Prime Minister, Mr Cameron, and his Conservative Party here in the United Kingdom where is the Big Society you promised us all here?

But as always Mr Cameron and his Conservative Party these were empty words and promises made in the hope it appeased their critics both within an outside of their party. They had no real intention of doing anything to change the way society here in the United Kingdom as it would not be in both their own and corporate supporters.

What they have done, like all Conservatives world wide, have put their corporate supporters and themselves before the Electorate who they actually serve and who actually voted them on their empty promises.

It is high time people finally woke up to Mr Cameron and the Conservative Party here in the United Kingdom as they simply do not care for the large majority of the people of the country and only make it easier for a small rich elite to exploit everyone else all in the aim of encouraging business and turning the economy around.

Simply put they have been lying to the large majority of the Electorate here and represent an establishment which is simply tired and lacks any real new ideas but still cling to old ideas and traditions which simply are not appropriate any more in modern country.

Simply put Mr Cameron’s Big Society is a myth and a lie!

The Liberal Democrats Have Missed a Golden Chance!

Leave a comment

The most disappointing political party currently here in the United Kingdom has to be the Liberal Democrats who have failed to temper and even stop their authority on the Coalition Government here!

Rather than using their position as the party which keeps the Conservatives in power they have been very timid and easily dominated by the Conservatives basically allowing them to pursue policies which may have turned around the British economy but at an unacceptable cost to peoples livelihoods and freedoms.

The Liberal Democrats had an opportunity to change the direction of the government as they held the balance of power and an unprecedented opportunity to chance things but they squandered the opportunity and were to timid.

So the Liberal Democrats have sown the seed of their own destruction rather than taking the opportunity to shine and as a long term Liberal Democrat voter I will not be voting for them again as why should I vote for a Party which could only squander such an opportunity!

My Republican Feelings Are On The Rise!

Leave a comment

As I get more and more disillusioned with the British Establishment as a whole as it gets more and more remote from the people it once served and includes both our Parliament and Royal Family the more my Republican feelings increase!

This is at total variance to how I was brought up which was with a respect of the Royal Family and the Queen herself but over the years both the various scandals surrounding the Royals themselves and the fact they are the figurehead of an establishment which has cared less and less for the people it serves, I have started to turn away from them and question their very existence and importance to the country.

I am slowly coming to conclusion for this country to move forward into a new brighter future we need to get rid of both the establishment and the Royal family themselves as both under the pretence of representing a British Tradition which represents a long gone Empire and way of life which frankly has no real place in our modern United Kingdom.

If anyone has actually been watching what has been happing in the United Kingdom would of noticed that as a nation we have become a multi-cultural, a multi-faith and remarkably tolerant nation.

But this is tempered by an establishment and Royals who still represent a United Kingdom which is still Christian and very British to a point that there are still some within the establishment who believe we have empire and demand respect from the rest of the world because we are British.

Then we wonder why our whole establishment including Parliament is so out of step with the rest of the United Kingdom as it simply does not have the same views as the country it now represents. Add to this it has become a self serving and self perpetuating system which clings to out dated even archaic traditions because the people within it are too afraid, too greedy and still drunk with the power the establishment gives them even at the cost of the United Kingdom and it’s people future.

I have always been of the view it is time we as a people took steps to remove those within the establishment who have been holding our country back from a brighter future and locked in a past which has long gone or should have been long gone.

And the best start of this change is to finally remove the Queen and Royal family from power and declare a Republic in doing so removing the figurehead of the establishment forcing them to change of be next.

As a final note if I wrote this blog entry some decade ago about the Republic here in United Kingdom I could have been arrested as it was illegal to have such sentiments here in the United Kingdom!

Religion in Schools in a Multicultural and Multiracial Society Is Wrong!

Leave a comment

What a recent Ofsted report here in the United Kingdom has highlighted to myself and other like myself that religion now has no place in our schools any more especially in a multicultural and multiracial society we have here now in the United Kingdom.

I have never been totally comfortable with Schools especially in my early days at Primary School being Christian or Christian orientated as I was brought up in a family who regarded schools as a place to learn academic and useful things for my future career not religion which was something which should have been left in the likes of Sunday School not the mainstream schools.

This has been a view I have taken to may adulthood and my views have been further enforced by the recent events in Birmingham over an alleged Muslim take over of a number of schools there which may or may not have happened. Then combine this we number of other worrying trends in other schools elsewhere in the United Kingdom which are now run and funded by fundamental Christian groups some of which have connections to the Creationists in the United States I am starting to wonder if religion should be taken out of the schools totally.

From what I can see both Christian and Muslim alike by meddling in schools here in the United Kingdom have damaged our education system in a fundamental way as both groups can be accused of using schools here to indoctrinate the young of their respective communities and watering down the real job of the schools here in the United Kingdom which is to educate the next generation with academic and practical skills they need to be productive citizens in the future.

What schools are not in my view should not be places of teach people religious morals and doctrines but how to be good citizens in society in a secular way as now the young are growing up in a multicultural and multiracial society. So if anything the one thing our schools should be teaching the young is tolerance not the intolerance and bigotry religion introduces in to schools currently.

But as Always the Coalition government here rather than tackling the problem by removing religion form the schools as they should they do a knee jerk reaction both politically correct and ineffective to attempt the control of schools by so called extremists of any sort.

My personal view is we as a nation should force the government to take back the control of all schools and remove all their connections with any religion, and I mean any religion, even down to renaming the old Church of England schools to remove the Christian Saints from their names. On top of which if any Christians, Muslims even Jews want to teach their religious doctrine and culture they should be forced to do it outside of the mainstream school system at their own expense not at the states and taxpayers expense.

I know what I have said some people may find a little extreme and it is not said because I am Agnostic Atheist but because as someone who believes in the purity of learning not being watered down or twisted by inappropriate religious doctrine which frankly has no real place any more in our modern society here in the United Kingdom!

Once Only Fascists Got Me Angry!

Leave a comment

Fascists and extreme Right Wingers still get my blood boiling because of their political views and the fact they spread hate over trivial things of race, religion and peoples sexuality.

But now I am starting to grow angrier with conservatives in general, be they the Conservative party or conservatives in the guise of the Labour party here in United Kingdom, because all they seam to want to do is perpetuate a system come establishment which simply does not work for anyone other than those privileged few it serves. All this at the expense of the society and people they claim serve.

In the end all they seem to achieve is a society doomed to suffer the exactly same mistakes again and again rather than a society which moves forward to things new something a growing and vibrant society need to do to simply survives.

What makes me so angry with the conservatives in general even their supporters is their attitude that they are right and none can question their actions as to do so is to go against them. The fact they brand anyone who questions them as a liberal or left wing and try to humiliate and be little them in the hope the people in question go away or give up.

Add to this an almost inbuilt hated and fear of change among the conservatives which is slowly strangling society in question slowing destroying the thing they so strive to keep. Anyone who has even cursory looked at history will know a society which stopped moving is doomed to destroy itself or collapse under it’s own weight.

So in the end it is not only fascist which are making me angry but conservatives in general for very similar reasons!

UKIP is Still Part of the Problem!

Leave a comment

I have to feel sorry for all those people who voted UKIP in the hope that they would bring a difference to the United Kingdom as a whole and solve the current problems we have here, in so much UKIP much like the major political parties here in United Kingdom are part of the problem here.

UKIP is still part of an establishment here in the United Kingdom, that is an establishment which cares for that small majority of United Kingdom citizens who are very rich or born to the right part of society while leaving the rest of the citizens to fend for themselves. Though they do throw a few little crumbs every few while to keep them happy and fooled they actually care for them. Sadly this majority always fall hook line and sinker for this trick.

UKIP, like BNP before it, is just a different facet of what is wrong with politics and politicians here in the United Kingdom in so much they are only self serving and disconnected from the actual electorate that voted them in. It is as if they live on a different planet to the electorate they serve a planet where everything is perfect and people under them should be grateful for anything they give them even if it means they take away some of their freedoms in the name of themselves getting richer and more powerful.

Do the people think that the leader of UKIP, Nigel Farage, actually believes what he is selling politically that he stands for a better United Kingdom?

The simple fact Nigel Farage and his cronies simply want power, to perpetuate the establishment and if anything make it even more powerful so the rich and privileged can prosper even more on the backs of the rest of the citizens of the United Kingdom.

UKIP and Nigel Farage himself are exactly like the major three political parties and their politicians here in the United Kingdom in so much they are full of empty promises, self serving and simply do not give a dam about anyone than themselves.

Basically UKIP is still part of the problem with politics here in the United Kingdom!
