It has been a while since I have written a journal entry though it’s not been because I am been overly busy just that I had real to say other than get angry about certain events occurring here in the United Kingdom.

The past two months has been a mixture of good and bad things though currently more bad than good.

The major worry is my currently is both my mental and physical health we has been better and it has started to deteriorate over the past month or so to a point I need to visit the Doctor before it gets any worse. All caused by external factors which I have little true control over currently which have certainly made my mental health far worse than it should be.

Last month has not all be bad as at home we have managed to move the computer room upstairs and my books down stairs so now I can write properly at a table which is great improvement from previously when I wrote on a tray on my lap which was note exactly most comfortable position to write.

Now I have a proper place to write it has already started to have a dividend as I have written more in last few days than I have done in a whole week before. It is certainly something I should of done months ago.

It also had another very beneficial effect because I am sitting in proper chair at a proper table I am not falling asleep as much when I was in a comfortable chair which in itself is definite bonus as I will feel better an stop worrying about the fact I am sleeping at the time and achieving nothing.

So currently things is a mixed bag of illness, worry and paradoxically moving forward with my writing.

All the EU Referendum has really highlighted in this country of ours is the big divide between people here.

That is those of us who want a progressive, open and forward looking country which can cope with rigours of the modern world who are largely Remain Voters.

Against those of us who want to live in an isolated, closed and backward country which want to hide from the modern world who are largely Leave Voters.

I think is starting to be lost more and more by the Leave Voters who have a very blinkered view of what leaving EU really represents as it’s nothing to getting control back but the future of everything connected to the United Kingdom.

It’s future direction and involvement with the world around it.

The very existence of the United Kingdom itself as a a single entity.

The future of our children and how they survive the unenviable change what will come with technologies especially those connected to the Internet.

EU Referendum is becoming bigger and lot more complex than the Leave Voters thought it would mainly because they failed to see beyond their own closed minds which were only focused on arcane concepts like Nationalism and Patriotism.

It is certainly becoming a real battle between those in the United Kingdom who want to move forward into a brighter, if scary future, and those who want to go back to what they believe a more secure and less scary past!

In the end you have really start to wonder about the British Business sector in general as currently it certainly does not serve the customers, the people who buy things off them, or employees, those who actually make their money, but a elite set of shareholders, those people who take the money out of the business and put nothing back.

So this is called Capitalism?

From where I stand it looks more like a legal protection racket run by elite group of gangsters which is a whole new definition of what Capitalism actually means!

The more you listen to the Leave Voters and Brexiteers here in the United Kingdom the less you believe what they are saying any more as all they can say is the same things over and over again!

You start to get more of a feeling from them they are trying so hard to justify their actions which is not working even for themselves.

In the end they may think they won but the truth is they have lost as all it highlighted is they can only look backwards, inwards and most of all they are afraid to embrace the world around them in all it’s glory.

The sad fact is both Leave Voters and Brexiteers live in fear of the big bad world outside of their little island sanctuary this green and pleasant land. A land which is being destroyed by their short sighted actions which has allowed a National Socialist Government flourish here spreading its policies of hate, bigotry and petty nationalism.

And what do they do they close their eyes to the damage they have caused all in the fate hope it is a nightmare and it will go away!

What has been really lost to most of both Remain and Leave Voters is just how Brexit has highlighted that we need to overhaul our Democracy here in the United Kingdom!

The current way we vote in MPs and they way they function as MPs in Parliament is flawed and archaic that it belongs to a United Kingdom which has long gone. It cannot cope with the rigours of a modern 21st Century country which we need to be to survive as a functioning society.

Simply put the United Kingdom simply is not working as a functioning society and only keeps going because of the grim determination of people in the right places putting a lot of effort.

It is only a matter of time before whole economy and fabric of society here in the United Kingdom will collapse and simply stop working. At which point even the rich elite in their ivory towers will not be safe from the resulting fire storm as everything collapses.

My personal view it is time for those people from both sides who have the wherefore and determination to change the United Kingdom so it works for everyone not the few, that is fix our broken country where ever it ends up.

It is time to put aside the old notions of nationalism and patriotism and start to build a society based on tolerance, inclusion and diversity as it end that will make society stronger not weaker.

But sadly in modern United Kingdom my words will be ignored or ridiculed as those of a left-wing loony or dreamer but everyone knows we need to change to too scared to stick their necks out any more.

I am not as I refuse to live in fear!

With all that is going on both in the United Kingdom and United States with governments which are openly blaming the immigrants for the woes of the country and calling those for no fault of their own are poor, disabled and mental ill scroungers, a drain on society even sub-human.

All this supported by a extreme right wing media and establishment who enforce these ideas with stories and propaganda which openly tell lies pushing aside the high ideals of media of being impartial especially in the case of the United Kingdom’s press including The Sun, The Times and the Daily Mail to name a few.

This is very much like Hitler’s 1930’s Germany during which his National Socialist Party did the exactly the same to the poor, disabled and mentally ill marginalising them as members of society. They also blamed the immigrants and Jews for all the ills for society and the economy, though now they target the Muslims rather than Jews.

Those who do not see the similarity are either blind or hiding their heads in the sand oping it is not happening again. All this regardless since the voting in of Mr Trump as President in the United Kingdom and Brexit vote here in the United Kingdom the extreme right wing parties, called Alt-Right in the United States, now openly state their xenophobic, homophobic and hate filled views openly on the media and started to be accepted by people who really should know better.

But the worse people of all in this process much as in 1930s Germany are those who say nothing when they know what is happening is wrong as by saying nothing when they could of done nothing they make themselves no better than people who are spreading hate.

In 1930’s there was a prominent Protestant pastor called Martin Niemöller who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps who is remembered for a famous quote which was valid then and it is now in our current situation.

The quotation goes as follows:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

This should be a sobering reminder to those both in the United Kingdom and United States who say nothing that saying nothing now is not the right thing do!

Drawing a Line in the Sand!

Posted: 15 March, 2017 in Comment, Life

It has become a point in my life especially when dealing with people in the outside world to draw a line on compromising my principles including my honesty.

I have had to bend my own personal principles to function in society which frankly has never sat well as turning a blind eye to things has led us into the mess we are all in now.

It is time to say no to those who expect me to continue in the same vain as I know what I am doing is wrong and in the past could be a large contributor to the very thing I have to fight everyday my depression.

Add to this I rather live a more honest and open life in a more honest and open world as it may be an ideal but it would be an easier world to live in and I would not have to battle my depression everyday because of it.
