Just has a quiet day off much needed after the last few days at work which were stressful not to the job itself but because of the unacceptable behaviour of people who claim to have management skills and can cope with stress. Ironically on both counts the people in question really cannot cope with especially as adults.

Other than that the day has been a good one during which I have managed to rest and wind down from the previous few days though as per usual I did not manage to get everything I wanted done though the more important chores have been done including food shopping. It was one of those days when ordinary if boring life was welcomed by myself.

Outside of work life has been quiet as I have not been in the most creative mood as the weather has been too hot which always makes me very lethargic plus the stress at work never helps as it distracts me even at home by not allowing me to relax to be creative.

Hopefully this will only be a temporary glitch and things get back to normal my end and I start to be creative again!

We Remember But With an Unwelcome Edge!

Leave a comment

As we here in the United Kingdom remember those people killed by terrorists in Tunisia last week it must of not gone unnoticed by myself and others they cynical use of these people’s death by the Conservative Government and certain media to insight anti-Muslim sentiment here in the United Kingdom.

Once again the Conservative Government is using these killings as an excuse to involve us in a war with the Islamic State in Syria not for a legitimate reason other than for purely political reasons so the Conservatives can claim they are doing their part against the evil of the Islamic State. All this regardless of the fact the Islamic State is more of a threat to the Middle East than the West but as always Oil muddies the situation.

Add to this the blatant use of these killings by right-wing press including The Sun to spread anti-Muslim sentiment once again a cynical use of the killings to increase the newspaper sales and to promote the owners political right wing agendas.

So in the end both the Conservative Government under Mr Cameron and the media, especially The Sun, have shown a cynical disrespect for the memory of the people by their actions. They all should be ashamed of their actions and sending the wrong message to the terrorists who killed the people.

We should remember the people who were killed by the terrorists but we as a people should show a defiance to the terrorists and continue with our lives as normal without a response as if we do something it is exactly what the terrorists want our government to do.

We should all also remember those people who died at the hands of the IRA and the fact we as a people in the United Kingdom showed a defiance to their attacks by continuing to live our lives as normal and not allowing the terrorist to provoke us!

The Conservatives Have Excelled Themselves!

Leave a comment

We all know here in the United Kingdom have always known that all the political parties lie and make promises they have no intentions to keep to get votes during a General Election. It is something we have always accepted as part of the course the political parties do here to a point a large majority of us tend to ignore what they say during their campaigns and vote the political party which suits our personal politics.

But the last General Election the Conservative Party have excelled themselves in so blatantly lying during their election campaign claiming they would look after the poorly paid workers and improve the lot of everyone in society from the poor to the rich. Strangely it worked as enough people believed them to get them into power.

The biggest irony of all the first thing the Conservative Party are doing is cutting the welfare state, Tax Credits and cutting taxes for more wealthy in British Society under the pretence to drive down the national deficit.

Personally I am now laughing at those people who voted in the Conservative Party as now a large majority of them are going to lose money some due to loss of benefits, tax breaks on top of which watch the services they took for granted taken apart including the NHS and Education system.

I bet of all the voters of this country a large majority of the people who voted in the Conservative are starting to regret it as their fear and short sightedness as if they had the power to make things better but did nothing!

What I find most ironic thing of all especially for the Eurosceptics within the Conservative Party is it looks like Mr Cameron has also lied to his party about his views on Europe in so much he is more pro-European than he is making out. This I find so highly amusing as the Conservatives platform included the European Referendum and possible pull out of Europe that is using the fears of the racists of the United Kingdom.

Life has got back to it’s normal routine of work trying to dominate my life all because there are those who still do not understand that life should always become before work as work is only part of our life and not all our life. As I have said before my job is an ends to a means not my life comes with age this realisation as you figure out there is more to life than just work.

Talking of work I have come to the conclusion that people there are so wrapped up in getting their targets they have simply forgot the basics of actually doing their job. It seams it has escaped them their job involves actually communicating with people and giving them what they want and need not what they and company think they need.

But this reflects the culture of the company I work for which frankly lost its way in a sea of targets and figures. It simply has forgotten why it is there, how to actually make money and survive a long period of time. Currently I really do not see the company lasting much longer in its current form as it really needs to go back to basics to survive. But as always with the Western World greed and a short sightedness blind those who run the companies so doomed to failure by their actions.

Outside of work life is a little quieter other and relaxed as I enjoy the long days of Summer when I can get so much more done and feel far more alive than shorter days of winter. At least this year I can enjoy the summer because I am controlling my moods and depression with the anti-depressants. It is this year a very pleasant place to be.

Some Englishmen Should Know Better!

Leave a comment

With the thorny issue of Europe being brought up by the Conservative Government here in the United Kingdom under the pretence that we as a people did not get a real choice of joining the ECC which frankly is bolting the door after the horse has bolted.

This made even more ironic as it was the Conservative Government under Margaret Thatcher who finalised us joining the EEC in the first place with the promise of more jobs and a new better identity in the world.

If any referendum were to have taken place it should of been done then not now as it is too late for us as country to leave the EEC as our economy and culturally our country is now far too entangled with Europe and pulling out will damage us economically.

Add to this regardless of what told it will also damage our independence more than staying in Europe as it will allow the big corporations, especially in the USA, to subvert our government to their own ends and increasing our counties dependence on them until we become yet another Corporate State. At least in Europe we will have a chance to keep our government independent from Corporate influence as Europe is far more active in fighting the detrimental influence of the corporations.

But the Conservatives and Right Wingers here in the United Kingdom are using a myth that we will remain independent if we leave Europe using the natural bigotry of some Englishmen especially towards Europeans to hammer home their message. But as I said above it is a lie we will not get the so called Independence they keep promising us but more likely to lose our identity and good standing in the world lost in the growing World spanning Economy and society. We as a country will finally fade from the world a has been country which was once a great player on the world scene.

At least as part of Europe we can still be a world player once again and grow with Europe. As I said we are more likely to keep our identity and once again become a big player in the world both as a people.

My personal view is the Conservative Government here in United Kingdom are wrong to push for a referendum as now it is far too late and it is going to damage the country to a point it could break up the Union once and for All time. Add to this as our economy is still very fragile and too linked to Europe it is also going to damage our economy again to a point things would get far worse than now if we leave Europe.

One final point I want to make it is going to bring out the real bigots of the United Kingdom who have been looking for excuse to peddle their vile hate and racism at the Europeans at a time we really do not need it here!

I am coming to the end of a five day run of shifts made worse because I have had no weekend because it was over a weekend. As I have said before a certain manager at work seems to fail to understand that people have lives outside of work or sell our souls to the company which they seem to think we all have done.

But as always I have survived the run of shifts coming out smelling of roses as I managed to get some work I am actually paid to do done or started at least. Plus got what I finally needed two set evenings off a week so I can both spend time with my partner and kick start my flagging social life.

All thanks to the big boss though it has to be broken to one of the other managers who will try to override the big boss decision claiming it will not suit the needs of the business but I think it is high time he they learnt to compromise as I will stand my ground as I want a better work and life balance.

So as always my life is a series of small battles and compromises which in the end I tend to win or have to win to keep my sanity and freedom of choice. It certainly makes life interesting though stressful at times but relatively normal as everyone else’s life are.

Today People Started to Say No!

Leave a comment

Here in the United Kingdom thousands of people marched in a number of cities against the Conservative Governments Austerity Plans which they claim are needed to fix the economic problems of the country regardless of recent comments by certain IMF members which pointed out it could cause more damage than good.

It shows that people here are getting fed up of the lies the Conservative government have weaved that what they are doing is doing the economy good and fixing the deficit but what has become very clear it is at the expense of the less well off people while the rich and establishment get richer.

On top of this the Conservative Government have failed to reform the financial system of the United Kingdom basically leaving the things as they were before the credit crunch even to a point leaving in place those Bankers and their cronies in place who incompetence caused the credit crunch in the first place. All they have done in the end is set thing up for the exactly the same thing to happen in years to come all in the effort to keep those who bankroll their party in place.

So this is my protest at the Conservative Government Austerity policies as they may be working but they are damaging our country on a fundamental level and making those of us who are not well off lives more difficult so a few wealthy and privileged few can prosper.

I am coming to the conclusion it is time to really invest in the country as a whole not just business but in society as a whole to strive to create real jobs, businesses and bring back a real social justice something the Conservatives has stepped on over past few decades.

It is time for us all to strive for the real Big Society of United Kingdom which is tolerant, fair and all inclusive not the Big Society of Mr Cameron which was a cynical ploy to get his party into power.

It is time the majority of use in this country who did not vote the Conservative Party in power make our voices heard and through protest start to force the government in Westminster to put all the people in the United Kingdom first not the privileged few as it is currently is.

It is time those of us who are not happy with the Conservative Government make sure they know it by peaceful protesting, blogging and the such as if enough of us make enough noise they will have no alternative but to listen.

As I have said before people do have the power to change the world and the word is mightier than any sword or gun!
