I look at my carpet and imagine a sea, my sofa is an island in all reality. A book floats upon it as if a great moored ship, if one jumps from my chair I may yet take a dip.
I must say I respect all those in the Party that are able to ‘turn the other cheek’ now the election is over. I however cannot in all honesty hold that view. I have seen friends and people I have great respect for purged from our party. I have seen people fearful of speaking their minds.
How dare officials tell us what we are ‘allowed’ to say. Name calling and trashing peoples reputations for greed.
No sadly I do not forgive. I do not forget. I obviously am not as compassionate as you that can and will.
I know that is what Jeremy is now calling for and again I respect him for it but already it seems the plotting goes on.
The only way in my opinion (which I am entitled to and have earned after a lifetime of living by my socialist principles and at times standing up and fighting for them) the Party can genuinely move forward now is to rid the plotters.
I know many will criticise this view, but it is my view. I am no Marxist, nor Communist, I am a Socialist and just believe in people, however those that have aided the Tories, that have promoted and defended ‘Austerity’ that have voted for or abstained from voting on cuts, on war on stripping our assets need to be shown the door. Those that betrayed the Party have betrayed the nation and more than that they have betrayed our future, that’s a betrayal of my kids and yours. That I do not forgive.
So feel free to criticise me, expel me, threaten me but you will not change my thinking.
The plotters need to go and we need to fight and win the next election, focussing on and battling the Tory machine every step of the way. We can only do that with a Party that is bereft of sabotage and dirty tricks.
So my view again is expel the plotters and reinstate those that have been expelled by them.
Ok you woke up today trusting your alarm time was correct. You trusted the microwave to heat your porridge for the set 2 mins. You trusted that the bus would arrive on or just after the time stated on the timetable. You trust you will get paid for the hours you work, well most of you do.
Everyday we trust things because we have been taught to do so, some through experience some because we are told to do so from a young age. We rely on that ability to trust every day of our lives.
Trust is important in every aspect of life from relationships to how a driver will react on the road to work.
When trust fails things change, often dramatically. When people stopped trusting in the Mark in the 1930’s there was a run on the German banks and the currency of an entire nation became worthless. This opened the doors to Hitler, National Socialism and all the hate, torture, war and death that followed.
Sadly I have to yet again announce to the world that I and others, many others, have lost trust in our government and those behind them.
We are aware that they only act in their own self interest and for the purpose of fulfilling their greed and lust for control and power.
‘oh dear Jonesey is ranting crap again’
Yep I guess I am, but its through frustration, despair and anger that I type these words.
Everyday the ‘Establishment’ those people with enough money and power behind them to ensure that everything is done ‘their way’, are manipulating us all to fill their quaffers further.
Our lives are just pieces on a game board to them. Our pain, employment, survival and existence at their whim. They vilify the weak and vulnerable to divert your attention from them. And sadly for most it works all too easily.
People watch Jeremy Kyle, a low life that preys on people with low intelligence and are by the very fact he is involved are vulnerable. He gets them on the stage and using his despicably preditorial behaviours destroys them not to assist them but to entertain the masses and lay blame upon these poor souls. These hapless fools are not the scum here, the scum are Kyle, his production team and …….. well sadly those that by watching his filth enable him to continue.
The same can be said for us all in regard to the government and establishment, every day we by our inactivity allow them to continue to kill, yes kill thousands through sanctions, austerity and poverty, we are as responsible for those deaths as they are. You and me have the blood of the weak and vulnerable on our hands. To me every day I try to find a way to end it.
So back to trust.
Do you trust Mrs May? I don’t. Do you trust the Conservatives? I don’t. Do you trust the super rich? I don’t. Do you trust the press? I don’t. Do you trust the government? No? Then why are we letting this sham continue?
Time has run out for so many. Soon it may be you.
So lets lose that trust in them. What then happens can be no worse than this.
Rise up rise up the ancient rallying battle cry
Finally today it is your masters time to die
Revolution is finally our only real choice
Rally behind the banner of truths new voice
Ivory towers built as modern baronial keep
If no end our future will continue to weep
We are living within a class war that must be won
Our children must be free from shackles and gun
Know now that we are at the crossroads of Britain
From now no destiny has yet been decided or written
Our descendants lives are currently in corrupt hands
Its time we the masses take back all of our great lands
The Establishment stole all they have from you and me
It’s time to recover our rights and once more be free
An end to greed and control is what we must now seek
Show these bastards that the people are no longer weak

Here I lay in my checked blue pyjama pants
Annoying the neighbours with Hawkwindy chants
Guitar now strung for maximum the white noise
Drowning out her from next door playing with her toys
The beat repeats as I scream and try to sing
Oh dear I wonder what those blue lights now bring
A knock at the door and the officer then strides in
Hello sir we have had complain about your loud din
Oh really I say to him in such an exasperated voice
Its her over t’road always moaning about mi musical choice
‘But sir’ he replies its now twenty past one in the night
‘I have not come in to give fuel to some feud or fight’
‘I will I suppose agree to curb my heaven sent musical skill’
‘thank you sir’ he motioned to me ‘as I am sure she is ready to kill’
The police have now gone leaving me to my evil thought
I swap guitar for my old bodhran wearing trainers so I dont get caught
I sneak into her garden with trusty drum in my shaking hand
I rang a few of my mates so we now have a travelling band
Not time to tune up i count us in ‘one and two and three’
Giggling with delight as I peer around at her from behind the old tree
The look on her face as she hears our first ditty and song
It priceless as now the rest join in to help by playing along
Again the car sirens have now started to shriek and wail
This time the coppers don’t hesitate and cart us all off to jail

Ok lets do some straight talking. This is how it is. The news today and recently is about how the NHS is failing, overstretched, at melting point. The truth is it really is. But ask yourself why?
Do you ever hear the media or government complain that Trident is not working? Nope because Trident is a leased cash cow to the Tories and to corrupt members of other parties too. Trident is owned by the Americans not us. It is about the biggest conn of our age next to that where most politicians tell us they have our interests at heart.
We ‘lease’ Trident. A weapon we cannot ever use not just because it would likely end all life upon our planet but also because despite us paying for it the US retain the codes to enable its use.
We not only pay to have their bomb but also we pay to maintain it.
Being careful to use the phrase ‘in my opinion’ here, members of HM government are benefiting, whether financially, with promises or power and at times I believe may even be being blackmailed (term I hate sorry) or threatened.
To these people Trident is the golden fleece.
When the Bankers got greedy, and their financial corruption backfired our ‘government’ decided it was our role to bail them out. In any other walk of life fraud and theft would result in prison time, but not if your a banker playing poker with other peoples money. We ended up not just shoring up these monolithic organisations but even then paying them financial bonuses whilst the cost to us was and is austerity measures, cuts in public funding, from benefits to the NHS. It was the poorest in society that even now lose the most from the reckless and illegal actions of these vile people.
Again no cuts to Trident though.
This brings me back to the NHS. Our Health Service, the organisation that we as a nation have been truly able to have pride in. The NHS was devised to give free at point of need health care to all. We all have paid into it. I have for 33yrs. Whether rich or poor you have been assured that if you are ill or injured you will get immediate and appropriate health.
So why is the funding for this most amazing of principles, the greatest thing Britain has achieved, been cut? Why is it failing?
Basically the answer is so simple. Because as the life saving service owned by the nation, the people, you and me, it only gives the rich limited opportunity for making money.
Yes I imagine the politicians have shares in Bayer or any and all of the other drugs companies, and I am sure there are ‘incentives’ or ‘rewards’ for contracts for medications, bank carers, food providers, porters or even the security companies, often G4 or Carritas (under the guise of Securitas), however if the NHS is seen as failing it can easier be split up and sold off to these companies along with others such as Virgin. They will get our NHS at a cut price, then charge us through health insurance far more to receive a budget service.
This is not a new tactic, on the stock markets companies have been doing this for years, but now its our government, and the ‘Establishment’ (the rich and powerful who really control things) that are doing it to us. They have already done it with the public owned industry, serves such as buses, the mining industry, trains, social housing and even who collects your bins. The NHS is just the next level, then the police, then our military.
Its obvious when you see the bigger picture, but people refuse to look. They, in many cases ‘you’ believe the bollocks you are fed by the media and just sheepishly nod your agreement.
All of these things are ours yet they steal them from us then charge us for the privilege.
Its time now to put a stop to this, to say its enough. If we dont then we will have nothing left. We are meaningless to these people whilst we allow them to do it, standing alone cannot work, however if we stand together we can stop it. Our ancestors did, the fought and died to stop this happening, the won the rights we now let the Tories and the other Establishment supporting corrupt politicians rob us of. We need to do the proud, rid our shame, and protect our children and their future.
Now is the time to stop this, lets insist those responsible are brought to justice, that blame lies firmly where deserved.
You are not thick despite often many of you being told you are, so lets find a way to stand together. Lets unite against corruption and greed. Lets take our country back from the rich.
The vile morality of those that now rule
Not the kindly king we read of at school
Greed and larceny control our world
When honesty appears lies are hurled
Our courts are run by corrupt law makers
They will never be convicted as a breaker
Allegations made are then hidden from view
Legislation does not count for me or even you
Gone is the last remnants of feigned democracy
Those speakers of hate found full of hypocrisy
Only the rich have any real hope of survival
Our establishments immorality so hard to rival
Disabled and the ill are vilified in censored press
Even searching on line for truth has become useless
Your given stories your expected to just believe
Yesterday’s news rewritten to continue to deceive
How can you hope to know whats truly going on
When all of society’ morality has finally really gone
All of this is to keep the poor in a subservient place
To doff their flat caps and if it please your grace
What is the point of being rich if no one is poor
There has to be both its just the natural law
Life cannot ever be completely honest or fair
Its not the aristocratic nature ever to share
They continue to strip the assets we own
Many already no longer have a safe home
You may manage for a little while longer
Its only their greed that ever grows stronger
