Article 50

Corbyn is showing the country that although the referendum was lies and half truths, that it was likely a result fed by exasperation and desperation, it was a democratic decision. If we wish live within a democratic state we have to recognise what democracy entails. It is no good having a referendum to find the ‘will of the people’ then ignoring it.
The referendum should never have happened. It was a poorly thought out stratagem of a desperately unpopular and corrupt prime minister. Cameron never expected it to be a decision to leave. Buffoon Boris was likely chosen to lead the leave campaign by Cameron and cronies because with such an obvious noxious clown leading the campaign to leave no one save the hardliners would even consider a vote to go.
When the country voted out boris and his pet UKIP fascist – Farage were in a state of shock. Both were not expecting it nor wanted it. Farage lives on the EU gravy train. He more than most wanted to remain. Boris never wanted this kind of success. He was hoping to step into Cameron’s position at the next election. The entire Tory government were at a loss.
Since the referendum the Conservatives have spent millions of party and personal funds trying to challenge the decision. They as business owners and capitalists depended upon the EU. The farmers that were vocal within UKIP suddenly realised their EU funding would be cut. The decision of the people was and is catastrophic for so many that campaigned to leave.
It probably was not the best decision for the rest of us, but time will tell.
Now I do not pretend to know all the ins and outs of Article 50, however it seems that it is the way the UK ‘negotiates’ its way out of Europe. It is the process of setting up deals, of building future alliances and retreating from the union with some dignity. It is the UK abiding by the rules and showing we do things the ‘right way’. I may be wrong.
Mr Corbyn has stated there will be a three line whip on MPs to vote upon Article 50. Now a lot of remainer’s (people who want to stay in the EU because of or even despite their voting in the referendum) think that the referendum result should be ignored, that Britain should back track and stay in the EU. But then there is that big word again ‘democracy’. You cannot ignore the will of the people, well you can but at your peril, as the last King of France, the Russian Tsar and even our own Charley (number 1) could testify to, well could if they still had voices to testify with. (guillotine, bullet and rope were the responses to these leaders that ignored their peoples demands).
So if we are to leave the EU then we need to get the best deal for Britain. We need to negotiate our way out. Go down the front steps not scurry out of the back door being chased into hiding by Angela.
Now we know their are members of the Parliamentary Labour Party that wish to see Mr Corbyn deposed as leader. Those MP’s are likely to use this vote not for the good of the country, nor their party members but to try to weaken Mr Corbyn’s position. They are not rebelling for the likes of you or me, nor for the common good, they are doing so in my view purely because they make too much money from the Establishment, (the faceless people behind the politicians, the people that truly currently wield the power), they have been in all probability (my opinion) been offered advancements, enhancements and bribes by the faceless few. The Establishment are scared of honesty, morality and integrity which are the qualities Mr Corbyn seems to hold. He has morals that he stands by, and I truly think cannot be bought. You may not agree with his politics but I see that he has true values and really does care about the people. He is however but a man, who now has some fabulous new blood backing him, (yes Mr Skinner, some not so young blood too).
So anyway a tad of a digression. I apologise.
To conclude, the Article 50 vote is important. I voted remain but see we now cannot. The EU is breaking down. We need to form alliances, to also currently distance ourselves from the USA and their bigoted fascist President. We need to be able to be seen by the world as a country that stands for democracy, for freedom and opposes hate and corruption. That is how Britain must move forward.
Anyway my opinion. As always. Disagree if you must, but share if not.
Thanks for reading this far.

Fish life

If I were in that world of wonderful aquatic life
I would have no anxiety, worry , fear or strife
Driftin’ with my family just keeping an eye to rear
For even as a captive fish I never know who is near

Darting and diving into the oh so fake plastic fauna
Swimming as far as i can, well at least to the corner
Sponge Bob’s pineapple is blocking my only direct path
A simple twitch I go through holes if only fish could laugh

No job to hate as money is not a consideration or worry
News means nought as does politics, in life there’s no hurry
Food provided now just play and sex are my daily task
So if there’s a god make me a fish in my tank is all I do ask

King Arthur

Well Arthur and Merlin are supposed to be asleep under Alderly Edge await Britain’s time of greatest peril, to return and defeat the evil. Well I think May is far more wicked than Morgana ever was and needs vanquishing, then on to the USA to rid Daffy Fart and bring it back to Britain. We could rid the Establishment too. So if they return who is with us? Already sewing a banner to follow!



Lets look at the big picture right now. We in the UK have an unelected Prime Minister that has since before the referendum been intent upon ridding the UK of its human rights legislation (law).

America has a new President that has made moves to remove the USA from the United Nations, why? Because the UN has the Declaration of Human Rights. He also has already within his first days of office repealed rights of the US citizenship, he has begun to segregate swathes of the American people due to race, religion and even gender.

Our PM Teresa May was the first world leader to officially meet Donald Trump (or Daffy Fart to his friends), she was even photographed walking hand in hand with this self-confessed bigot.


So lets think why would both May and Trump wish to remove the rights of their citizens?

Well several reasons come to mind. One people with no rights can be made to work cheaper and longer. This makes more profit for the rich that like May’s husband and Donald own business’ including hedge funds (which means that like Mr May they can deny holding an interest in say G4 because it is actually their hedge fund that officially owns the stakes in G4 not Mr May directly, though he has a major stake in the hedge fund. Complicated hey? Not really but meant to seem so, in order to prevent you and me seeing the corruption).

The next reason is that without rights people can be held without charge or trial, they can be tortured and even killed by the state. Oh but surely that cannot happen in the UK? Well a senior Tory has stated he believes torture can work. Mr Trump has declared he believes not only can it work but should be used.

Scared? Oh no this cannot be real can it? Just Jonesy ranting again?

OK next, the Human right act here gives us all sorts of rights, and along with other laws means we cannot be discriminated through ability, race, gender, religion, culture, health or sexuality.

The issue is that we all of late have seen how the disabled, the ill, the unemployed, the Muslim’s, the homeless, the black, the Asian, and all vulnerable minorities have been vilified in the media, and worse by government departments, local authorities and the police.


Because this not only is absolutely distraction, taking your focus off the real reasons for things like austerity, for the corruptive dealings of the wealthy and the powerful (The Establishment) and those that govern us, by giving you a scapegoat, someone to blame that are not the true culprits, it divides the nation. It reduces opposition and negates the unity of the people, which you can believe is the one thing these people are truly afraid of. If we united against them, their corrupt dynasty would fall within days. Sadly whilst we blame the weak it will never happen.

Here in Britain we have more cctv than anywhere in the world. We are the only major country to have conviction without trial, (fixed penalty fines and even a police caution are viewed and recorded as convictions. These are often given at the whim of officers).

We also have a large state controlled media and Establishment owned press. They feed us ‘news’ which is mainly propaganda not truth. The main offenders are the BBC, The lovely Mr Murdoch and his Sky media empire which includes the Scum News Paper, The Main news outlets, which comes under the banner of MSM – Main Stream Media.

Even your soaps and tv programs are designed to perpetuate beliefs the Establishment want you to hold. Shows like twat Kyle, Benefits Britain, Benefits Street even Victoria Derbyshire are made solely to divert ire and loathing on to the most vulnerable.

The most worrying thing of all is that if we look back to 1933-1936 this is exactly (without the obvious advances in technology) how Hitler and Mussolini came to power. In the UK we see the weak and vulnerable as the cause of austerity, not the Bankers that gambled with your money and lost, not the MP’s that make fortunes from the arms industries and oil companies.

Am I being dramatic? Sadly not. What’s next? Well after May breaks up the NHS, privatizes the police, social care, child protection and then the military what else is there? Well all local government which will mean council tax will pay profits not just services, I imagine a three hundred percent rise in that, toll roads even on A and B routes, and stripping all the UK assets. The Country will in time become a business model not a country.

Sci-fi? Fantasy? Sadly I fear not.

You can argue all or even points of this, it is my personal vision of our future, sadly how I see the path the UK taking.

So feel free to criticize, but time will tell. If we do not act as a nation now kit will be too late.


My death

Lets celebrate to true genius, albeit evil genius of Teresa May and her cronies. In one simple innocuous decision she has on paper saved the NHS countless millions and ended the uncontrollable spread of diabetes in the uk. Well amongst the poor that is, but what a humanitarian? Of course she won’t publicise her fantastic efforts to massively reduce one of Western Societies most problematic conditions. She won’t ever be seen as a modern Marie Curie, nor even good old Florence Nightingale, infact she truly would deny her intent in this, well publicly that is.
So how has she achieved such a wondrous outcome? A new cure? New treatment? A new prevention?
No nothing so obvious or old hat. What she has done is far more imaginative.
She has simply ended government (NHS) funding of blood test strips. This simple move will now cost around £70 per month (a mere lunch at Claridges for her compatriots), which sadly to those of us on low wages, on benefits, surviving on tax credits or/and food banks is beyond any kind of reach.
Those of us that have to decide what to cut out just to afford the bus fare to a hospital appointment, or which meals we do not eat in order to warm but one room of our home (if we infact have a home) truly cannot afford this cost.
What this new reality we have woken up to truly means is illness, ulcers (in limbs not your mouth, oozing puss filled sores that do not heal), blindness, neuropathy (permanent nerve damage that causes pain, loss of blood flow, erectile dysfunction and the like, basically steals any quality of life), amputation, and yes frequently death.
Now those of us whether type one or type two that use insulin need to test our blood. We need to do this regularly and also when ever feeling unwell. We may or may not have good control of our illness and taking the meds but even for those that truly get their insulin right every time (sadly not me) a simple cold or bug can mean we take too little or more worrying for me as type two, far too much.
Hypo’s are not much fun. They cause dizziness, a feeling of nausea, headaches, shaking, passing out, coma and death. The testing strips help us identify when these are to happen. Without them a short walk to the shops can end up in hospital, a drive easily in death. As a insulin user I have to test my bloods every time I drive and every two hours into a drive or lose my licence. So if I have no strips I cannot drive, there goes any independence and in my case feeling of worth I have remaining.
So Teresa thank you for your altruistic decision. You have just destroyed my life and that of many hundreds of thousands if not millions of others in one simple decision.
As I said this decision will never effect her or her mates, just me, you and your friends and families.
We need to stop this right now
