‘2020’ hindsight, still a bit fuzzy?

Remember if we had locked down in February, if we had not had a corrupt government giving mates contracts and paying them our money to steal from us, if we had a prime minister and opposition with a backbone, if we had mandatory masks in February, closed schools, airports, ferries, stopped unnecessary travel even if it was to drive across the UK to test our eyes, if we had a primate minister who did not hide, a government that told the truth, that followed medical guidence, that put human life before their bank accounts and status amongst their friends, Royals that had the guts to shout ‘no’ rather than saying they want to be reincarnated as a killer virus, if we had a nation of people with common sense, prepared to social distance, wear masks rather than stand clapping the nurses, doctors, paramedics, keyworkers as those very live savers died on their feet, if we had a media that itself did not publish fake news and propaganda, if we had a government that had not run down all the health and social care services in the name of Austerity whilst paying for missiles we can never use, if we had focused upon our real enemies instead of a few refugees and migrants, not hating folk because of their gender, sexuality, race, culture, ability, if we had prioritised our families and not our possessions, then maybe, just maybe so many families would not be feeling the pain of loss, the fear of loss, the anxiety of even opening their doors. If we did not live in a country that treats its sick, elderly, disabled and vulnerable as scum, a drain, expendable maybe we would have seen the warning signs and acted upon them.
Yes hind sight is always ‘2020’ , (ironic hey) but looking back it’s easy to be made to believe the mistakes were accidental, not the fault of those in charge, unavoidable.
Just to be clear, the Conservative Government, the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition, the press, and the businessmen asset stripping the UK made no ‘accidental mistakes’. Their behaviour was and is deliberate. They are culpable. They should be accountable, but unless we hold them to account now they will kill many many more.

Future of Labour

So St Sir Kier of Starm (I was going to call him Sturm but then found that Sturm means noun. : a late 18th century German literary movement characterized by works containing rousing action and high emotionalism that often deal with the individual’s revolt against society. So in contrast to Starm which means puppet of the establishment and unofficial agent of Mossad), is it seems about to face a revolt after his vile behaviour towards Jeremy Corbyn.
Someone on a post earlier in a socialist group asked what the left in Labour are going to do, the thing is Labour is supposed to be bloody ‘left’, it is supposed to be in opposition to the Conservatives – the ‘right’ (as in direction not morality).
Starmer is not a left wing politician, he and his ilk are careerist right wing (center right at best) representatives of those who wish the status quo of the poor remaining poor and the rich getting richer.
If there is no one in the gutter how can they judge how high their platforms are?
Prince Phillip let it slip a couple of years ago when he stated that he wished a virus would wipe out half the world (not a direct quote but near enough). The rich, wealthy and super rich do not value our lives. They do not respect our rights, just because they smile when stabbing you does not make their tyranny any less.
It’s easy to lie, to use fake news, propaganda, and cover your own corruption, deviance and atrocities when you own the press and media. It’s easy to convince the masses that you are on their side it seems by saying you like their music, support their football club, drive a car they love or ride a pushbike.
Politics truly now is smoke and mirrors, a deception that makes the majority believe we live in a democracy. Sadly we do not.
There will never be a time that we are permitted or allowed to have a free honest vote on anyone who is not owned by those in charge.
Starmer, Rayner, Mann, Watson, Hodge, Brown or any of the long line of sabateurs have I believe been bribed, cohersed, romanced not just by our establishment but by foreign governments and powers. They do not in any way represent the membership, the National Exec, the Party or the people.
I cannot see any simple way out of this disgusting reality that doesn’t involve us being suppressed by force or living under their rules of compliance.
It really to me is that simple.
So yes it would be good if Starmer was sacked, challenged and replaced, but we need to Learn our lesson, the powers in control will never allow an honest moral leader and cabinet run the UK.
Fractionalised parties will never gain power. The only chance of change is a ‘Labour Movement’ that sheds blood sweat and tears as our forebears did with the start of the unions and civil rights.
If you want a fair, non discriminatory and caring future of hope for our children, we are going to have to stand up and fight.

Refuge from hate

This post started as a response to a comment upon one of my Facebook posts but I felt we all needed to think on it.

If we think of refugees we are told they are are migrants, not true. We are told they are greedy, again not true. They are people escaping war, death, injury and famine.
sadly the extreme violence they have lived through will most definitely effected them. We may see them as distant or even ignorant, we may look at them and wonder why they don’t smile at us, they shun us, they avoid eye contact.
We might see them swearing, being aggressive or hoarding.
There are times we will hear or see them shouting at their children……. But then we must think. Shouting at their kids though not in any way acceptable will have been a survival tactic. Ensuring the kids reacted immediately when they were living under bombardment and trying to escape. They all likely have seen horrors we cannot imagine, horrors even the most graphic movies won’t show. PTSD is the norm for refugees but if as used in Syria, Yemen,. Iraq, Palestine and throughout the Middle East they have witnessed friends or worse family killed by phosphorus shells and bombs that slowly burn your skin down to the bone searing the wounds as is does so, their PTSD will be complex and they will trigger everytime they close their eyes. I am not defending child abuse in any way, and you 100% should and must be reporting it every single time, but the services here should be supporting the kids and their parents, they should ensure they are getting focused provision to deal with their mental health and loss, loss of people but also loss of thier home and the lives they had built.
It’s easy for us to sit back and judge, especially when we are told by the government and media that these are migrants coming to Britain to get our benefits and a free house, which after working with refugee families I can assure you is not the case, they get put in a detention centre, locked away with basic food, no recourse to public funds and a very uncertain future. Many are moved on or sent back to countries where their lives will be forfeit.

Oh and remember those bombs, missiles, planes, tanks were likely built in Britain as our biggest export now seems to be death.
Think on it my friends.

A refugee is not a migrant!
So before you spout vitreous hate, shout abuse or threats, think about what these folk have survived and ask yourself just how their experiences would change you. Ask yourself and your MP’s what you would want if it was the UK bombed to bits and your only option to give your kids the slightest chance of life was to leave everything you could not carry and escape to a landwhere people are told to hate you and demonise you. Someone who has never set out to hurt anyone else. You the person that just wanted to be a good mum, dad, brother, sister, son, cousin, friend, human.
