Once again a Conservative Government here in the United Kingdom is blighted by sleaze, corruption and sexual abuse the second time in less than 50 years!

What makes this all worse the Conservative Party Elite and the Establishment they represent actually think this behaviour is acceptable and even try to hide it from the public. Both use it to keep their minions in line and hold on to power!

What is becoming clear it is time this is dealt with once and for all time with removal of the offenders from corridor of power, public life as such abuse and corruption is not acceptable any more in a civilised society.

But as always the British public will turn a blind eye to the abuse and corruption because it is easier to do nothing rather than make things better!!!

Disillusioned of England!

Posted: 8 October, 2017 in Comment, Life, United Kingdom

At the moment it is getting more and more difficult for me to live and work in the country of my birth as I am becoming more disconnected to it as it is not the country I was born into but a country which is becoming hard edged and inhumane.

I am lucky where I live as I am isolated from the worse of what is happening in this country as the town I live in is a backwater who almost lives in a bubble of it’s own. But I am surrounded by media and feeling that the country is heading towards a disaster which could of be so easily avoided. All made worse that I feel powerless to change what is going to happen as I feel out of step with my own country and people.

Even recoiling working for a multinational company and my basic ethics and honesty is becoming difficult as my faith in Western Capitalism has been servilely dented by recent events over the past decades especially the 1990s. I have watch Western Capitalism change from something which benefited everyone as it gave a change to all to what it has become a Capitalism which only benefits the few at the expense of the many. A Capitalism which now encourages inhumanity and exploitation at the expense of people’s basic human rights.

In the end I am becoming more and more disillusioned about living and working in an England I do not believe in any more if anything I am starting to hate more and more. I am starting wanting to escape to a place which I can start to grow again and not feel like I just want to give up and not bother.

England is not the green and pleasant land for me any more but a dark and foreboding place with little and no real future!

The situation in Catalonia reflects the general malaise of all western governments in so much they do not or refuse to listen to the very people they claim to represent!

The Spanish government is acting exactly like the United Kingdom Government over Brexit that is running rough shod over the people rather than talking to the people as any civilised society should.

It is a shame to see our so called Western Democracies have become democracies only by name not by it’s actions.

The issues in Catalonia could be so easily solved by the Spanish government asking the Catalans why they want to leave Spain in the first place but as always the Spanish government puts itself above the very people it represents and pay their wages!

Putting Money Before Living!

Posted: 1 September, 2017 in Capitalism, Comment, Life

A friend on Facebook is thinking about buying a house here and asked for advice with the usual lot of answers.

The most annoying answers which annoyed me the most are those people who regarded buying a house as investment and not as a home. It really shows a poor set of priorities as putting money before finding a home to actually live in and enjoy shows deficiency in their characters.

But like most things in our modern Western Capitalism people are far too focused on money rather than what is more important things for example creating a comfortable and fulfilling life.

My personal view people should start to put life and living it before money as always life is something we only have once and need to live and money is just an ends to a means and a token.

Centring your life around the collection of a token really shows there is something lacking somewhere in your life. Living should always come first!

I’m coming to the point we here in the United Kingdom needs to remove a lot of long held traditions and institutions of ours as they may be good for the tourist trade but they are not good for the future of the country.

We need to remove those thing which are holding back our country and represent an existing Establishment and Government which cannot or is unwilling to embrace the future and replace them with a new Establishment and Government which can cope with the pressures and global economy of the 21st Century.

If this means the removal of the Queen, remaining Nobles and House of Lords so be it as they be part of what was Britain they, much like Church of England, are things of the past whose relevance has long gone.

Our society here in Britain needs a big shake up from the top to the bottom and need modernising to cope with the 21st Century and once an for all time the Class system needs to be smashed as it has no relevance once again.

We as a country need to move forward not hold onto traditions and institutions which have no purpose any more but to hold us back.

We as a country need to create new traditions and institutions which reflect both the 21st Century and the real modern Britain which include all the people not a few.

We need to do this soon as if this country does not adapt to the modern world soon it will be left behind by the rest of the world and sink into oblivion of old age largely forgotten by the rest of the world.

It is now becoming to a point either adapt and survive or stay the same and die for this country!

The Art Incompetence!

Posted: 15 August, 2017 in Comment, Life, Politics, United Kingdom

More and more it is becoming clear that Mrs May and her government here in the United Kingdom really have no idea what they are doing with Brexit.

It seams the only ideas they have are ill thought out and based on a fantasy created by Mrs May own mind. They are certainly making it up as they going along.

In the end it is high time Mrs May and her Government was removed from power and Parliament permanently as they have shown they are incapable of ruling the country effectively!

In addition they should all face justice and the courts for the damage they have done to the United Kingdom as they should not get away with what they have done!

Lip Service Politics!

Posted: 14 August, 2017 in Comment, Life, Politics, United Kingdom

I had to smile someone wrote on my Facebook timeline that the Labour Party belonged to it’s members as there is a proviso to that which is unless you were a Remain Voter, the majority in the Labour, you were left in the cold and ignored by Mr Corbyn’s leadership!

In the end nothing really chanced in the Labour Party it is still dominated by the MPs in Parliament so myself believing in real democracy could not be a part of such party.

Labour much like all political parties here in the United Kingdom only give lip service to democracy and if anything do not have the balls to embrace it!
