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.

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!

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!

Depression: Leaning Not to Live in Fear

Leave a comment

As I came out of my depression one thing I noticed is that I do not live in fear any more especially of life itself even dying. All the time I was at my height of my depression, which was decades, I lived in constant fear of everything from dying, what people thought of me to even changes of life which made life very difficult for me.

It had become something which dominated my life totally and meant I never really lived as such just existed and go through the motions of life. Then I would not even write this journal as I would of been to afraid of what people would think about it and not able to take any criticism because of it.

One thing I that has come out of me controlling depression is the fact that I do not live in fear of life any more which means I can finally live my life how I want not how others think I should.

Though one thing has come out of this I am still surrounded by people who are still living in fear of life not necessarily due to depression as their actions indicate that is they are always angry, aggressive or even not wanting to understand people just in case they show weakness hence fear. It also highlights the detrimental effect living in fear does to the people around you as it ends up hurting and frustrating people as I see now I see it from the other side.

All in all after I stopped living in fear I have started to enjoy life more and stop worrying about things which I have little real control over though it does not stop me commenting when things are wrong in my view.

Corporations Have Replaced the Church!

Leave a comment

Once in the West it was the Church who told us how to live and think even at the point of a sword wielded by those who wanted power and wealth at any cost. Something we over our history we have managed to remove from our society so we could finally enjoy our lives free from the church’s oppressive rule in the background.

What now dismays me in the United Kingdom and especially in the United States the oppressive rule of the Church has been replaced by insidious rule of the Corporations and those who run them. Who much like the leaders of the Churches in the past, especially in Europe, use their corporations to increase their power and wealth at the expense of society at a whole.

Much as the Churches before them the Corporations have started to directly influence the governments for their own benefit even to a point of telling people how to live, think even what to buy. All so a small group of people who head these corporations, much as religion before them, can live in abject wealth and privilege as parasites on the society they suppose serve.

What really worries me that people in general are blind to this thinking the corporations and the people who own them have the best intentions for them and society in general. When in actual fact the corporations and the people who own them are self serving to make money at the expense of society and even the environment.

These same people complain about poor wages, poor treatment and environmental damage about these corporations and do nothing about even keep buying from the offending corporations. Then they wonder why nothing ever changes and the power of the corporations grows as they know people will do nothing.

In conclusion the Church has been replaced by the Corporations who pray at the same alter of power, greed and wealth at any cost as the Church before them!
