What Do I Want?

Posted: 11 August, 2019 in Brexit, Comment, Life, Politics, United Kingdom

I made the comment on a social network that I would not become the monster the Brexiteers want me to become.

I said this because Brexit will turn the United Kingdom into an intolerant, racist and isolationist country much as the Britain depicted in the film V for Vendetta. The only way to survive such a country you would have to become a monster who turns a blind eye to the abuses of human rights because the government removes anyone who does not fit into their own narrow twisted morality that is anyone who is not white, homosexual or Christian.

I could not remain silent I would have to speak out anyway I could even if it meant I was imprisoned or disappeared.

Of cause there are those out there who say my view of a post-Brexit United Kingdom is very dark and say it will never happen here. But the writing is already on the wall as our current Prime Minister and the Conservative Party are prepared to compromise our Democracy so they can get their Brexit at any cost.

This further supported by Conservative Ministers and MPs openly saying they want to spy on us more, remove our rights especially connected to work even push those who supported the United Kingdom remaining in the EU. All very reminiscent of 1930s Germany and the rise of the National Socialist Party under Hitler.

History is repeating itself in modern Britain and people are once again turning a blind eye to it as they want an easy life rather than fight for what they know I right.

I have got side tracked but I felt I needed to explain why I said what I said.

On the social network someone asked me what did I want to happen here in the United Kingdom now to which I answered I wanted people in the United Kingdom to remember that they are Human Beings which would be a start.

It may sounds very simple but if we remember we are Human Beings, we will remember that we are all mortal and all the same under the skin regardless of our beliefs, sexual orientation and colour of skin.

It would be a small start in the right direction.

The one thing I have found totally pointless in the past and in the upcoming European Parliament Elections here in the United Kingdom is the fact that Anti-EU and Brexiteer candidates actually take part in the very elections they want to get rid of as an independent United Kingdom.

I have always found this a hypercritical thing to do after all these people want to get rid of the European Parliament power in the United Kingdom not support not by becoming part of the problem they perceive EU. Even the excuse they give that they are becoming part of the European Parliament so they can speed up the process of Brexit which frankly is most pathetic excuse I have ever heard.

Though from past experience of UKIP MEPs in the European Parliament they managed to do nothing effective to speed up Brexit other than greatly annoy our fellow Europeans by accusing them of various anti-British sentiment and acting as a bunch of criminals. That is when they actually turn up for work in the European Parliament as Nigel Farage being worse example of Brexit MEP who really attended but fiddled the system to get expenses he and his party were not entitled to.

As it is now highly likely we as a country are going to stay as part of the EU because of the shambles the Brexiteers and the right have made of Brexit itself because of their own stupidity, criminality and incompetence by voting the said people into the European Parliament is an exercise in the pointless. After all just how are these MEPs going to serve the interests of the United Kingdom in Europe?

By voting in Anti-EU and Brexiteer MEPs you re effectively removing any real influence we have in the European Parliament as on past performance such MEPs are lazy, unrepresentative of the constituents they represent and not above claiming expenses from the EU which they are not entitled too.

My personal comment, which will not be heeded they the Brexiteer and Anti-EU out there, is to vote in MEPs who will actually represent the needs of the constituents they represent as in the end they will have a far greater influence on the EU than the Anti-EU and Brexit MEPs who will be a total waste of time largely ignored by out fellow EU members.

Sadly I am being a victim of the Conservative Government’s NHS squeeze a process which should of only be a quick process which due to lack of funds given to NHS is going to turn out to be process which is going to take over month to solve.

I don’t blame the NHS but I blame Mrs May’s Government totally whose unnecessary Austerity measures have starved the NHS all in an attempt to force us to use Private Health Services which people like myself cannot afford.

What makes this worse for me I have a Bleed Anaemia which has already endangered my life once and it could do the same again at any time.

All this so Mrs May’s Government can claim the NHS does not work and force us all to take out Medical Insurance from Companies which are paying the current government to destroy the NHS.

This jut highlight how corrupt our government here in the United Kingdom has got especially the Conservative government which runs the country for big business and an elite at the expense of the people.

All made worse by a Labour Party more intent on destroying itself and ignoring it own voters. A Labour Party which now supports the Conservative plans to destroy the country than be saviour of our NHS and public services.

So in the end I am yet another person effected by the Conservative Government’s policies and I an very unhappy about it as because of them I cannot work, I do get full pay luckily, and they have put my own life at risk!

All for what? Nothing!

Looks like Facebook yesterday tried to censor anti-government posts targeted at the Mrs May’s Government here in the United Kingdom which has not gone unnoticed by those who were effected!

I suspect that Facebook will feel the backlash though it has gone unnoticed by the mainstream press which makes the whole situation highly suspicious indeed!

There are those out there who will say I am making a mountain out of a molehill but on past form of Facebook and Mrs May’s Government it would not surprise me if it was an attempt by our government with the conclusion of Facebook to suppress any opposition to their policies here in the United Kingdom.

Be warned this may be the first of the attempts by Mrs May’s government to censor any opposition post on Facebook and beyond so we need to be very vigilant just in case they try this again!

I don’t call Mrs May’s government Fascist for nothing!

Just starting wonder when the large majority of Leave Voters here in the United Kingdom actually join the rest of us in the real world?

I still love the fact they still falling for the lies of the Leave Campaign and they still hold on to out dated views like Patriotism and Nationalism.

I especially love the fact they still think we have an Empire and still a super power with enough clout to actually force people to trade with us as in the good old long gone days.

More and more I listen to them the more I am coming to the conclusion they are becoming irrelevances in our modern world as in the end they will be left behind when the world starts to move forward again.

I have stopped feeling sorry for them and I am listening to them less and less as all they say is irrelevant now in a modern Britain!

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!!!

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!

It’s Time!

Posted: 28 June, 2017 in Comment, Life, Politics, United Kingdom

Time we really started to change the way the United Kingdom is run!

It is time to make both Parliament and its Establishment more answerable to the all the people from poor to rich!

It is time to stop Corporations and Super Rich from dominating the government and have a government which serves everyone!

It is time finally to break the strangle the hold of a small rich elite who believe they have a right to rule this country as their time has long gone even if this means the Queen and House of Lords have to be removed!

We are not the country this small rich elite think it is any more as the people have moved on and left them behind. We are now, regardless of the small right-wing nationalists think, have become a European and multicultural country which wants to be real world player!

It is time we the people took back control of the United Kingdom!

It is time for people of United Kingdom to speak out and stop being so British!

We thought 2016 was bad!

Then came 2017 were the Conservatives under Mrs May reach a new low in British Politics risking the peace in Northern Ireland and they very existence of the Union by trying to create a coalition with the DUP!

And what for?

So the Conservatives can stay in power and prop up one of the most incompetent, inhumane and bigoted Conservative PM one Mrs May!

It is these people who are taking the control of the United Kingdom not the EU.

So all I can say to people wake up to this fact before it is too late!

What choice do we actually get in this current General Election?

In reality none as the two major political parties look backwards to a bygone world which should of passed decades ago!

Not really a choice at all but a big step backwards for the United Kingdom a country which once looked forward to a brighter future.

My personal view do I really want to live in a country now?

The answer is no as a country which looks backwards is a sterile and unimaginative place which is doomed to slow decay into oblivion eventually forgotten by all around them even for the great things it did in the past.

It is getting a serious matter if the UN now investigating the government of the United Kingdom.

It is something that has never happened in my life time and up to now the government, if not perfect, could be held up as an example how a real democracy could work.

But now under the Conservatives our government is no better than Middle Eastern governments they criticise for human rights etc. as our government now under Mrs May is no better.

Just how did the people of the United Kingdom allow this to happen?

Or a more apt question do the people of the United Kingdom even care for anyone including themselves any more?

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!

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!

What is becoming more clear to me here in the United Kingdom the average Leave Voter, much like Brexit itself, really do not understand or know what they want for United Kingdom if we leave the EU.

All they can say are the usual National Socialist slogans and some vague ideas of what will happen, I mean very vague ideas!

If I had voted for Leave I would of actually thought of what it meant to the country not because someone spouted just some slogans rather than giving the facts.

So far I have only met a handful of Leave Voters who actually thought about why they voted to leave and they has valid arguments why they voted the way they did.

I find it shocking that the large amount of Leave Voters here in United Kingdom really did not think through the possible effects their actions would effect the country and the future of future generations.

It looks more from my own position they simply did it for their own selfish reasons based on slogans not on the facts!
