Tories using censorship to hide the truth about arms sales to Saudi Arabia. Shocking video footage,

This shocking video has surfaced today of Amber Rudd (it would appear) passing a note to the chair of an election debate in her local town, when one of her rivals starts telling the truth about her dealings with banks and their involvement with selling arms to Saudi Arabia. The chair then proceeds to stop this gentleman from speaking. In effect censoring him and stopping him from speaking truth to the people listening. That can only ever be wrong and this information, this video of shocking censorship needs to be seen and spread as widely as possible.

I would advise everyone to read this information and watch the accompanying youtube video.

Given what happened last night in London, the only way to combat this terror is to shine the light of open transparency onto our own governments shady dealings. It's all very well for the PM to stand outside Downing Street and spout of strong rhetoric, but the truth is that our dealings with tyrannical and totalitarian regimes and the role that they play in bringing terror back to our shores needs to be fully understood and made widely known to the British people.

Again, I would strongly advise readers to look at the information provided in this link. Also, possibly of interest, this video has been tweeted over 100 times to leading journalists in the MSM and so far the response has been absolute silence, It would seem non of the MSM outlets have any desire to show this video.

Can you imagine how quickly it would have been picked up and shown around had it been Corbyn or a senior Labour figure doing this. Hypocrisy of the highest order.

Election 2017: My thoughts

I know I haven't written anything in a long time, but I've been so angered and engaged by this election that I felt it was time I got back on the horse.
Right up I'm going to nail my colours to the mast. I'm voting Labour. I know that from my previous posts that will shock and surprise many of you. However, let me give you the reasons why.

First, I like and trust Corbyn. He is a man with integrity and has genuine, traditional Labour values and principles at his heart. He's not a Blair clone, who was little more than a 'red Tory.' If Thatcher can genuinely and honestly describe Blair as 'my greatest achievement in politics' that should tell you all you need to know about 'Teflon Tony' That being said, I don't trust May as far as I could throw her. My reasons for this are as follows:

Regards her promise to clamp down on tax avoidance and the like; I recently discovered that her husband is senior exec of a $1.4 tn investment firm who profit from tax avoiding companies and were heavily highlighted in the Panama Papers scandal. The one where Cameron tried to tell us all it was 'a private matter.' Therefore, how can we trust her to make multi-national companies pay their fair share of tax and clamp down on tax avoidance, when her own husband works for a company that makes money from helping firms avoid paying tax?

Regards her plans for education, I have watched over the last 6 years as school budgets have been cut to ribbons and schools have had to let go of vital support staff and cut down to the bone special need provision. This has meant larger class sizes, less and less resources, fewer qualified staff. Many schools often now have to use HLTA (Higher level teaching assistants) to fill in for proper, fully qualified teachers. It has also meant that the needs of children with learning difficulties are not being met and so they are left to fail without adequate support. It is absolutely disgusting. I myself, lost my own job as a 1-1 tutor even though I got fantastic results and was a huge help to the students I worked with. Simply because of cuts.

Regards her condemnation of extremists and terrorists. How can we trust this woman, who cries for victims of the attack in Manchester, when she is selling £billions worth of bombs and weapons to Saudi Arabia? Those same bombs have been shown to be used in Yemen to bomb and kill innocent women and children.  Furthermore, Saudi sell these weapons on to rebel groups such as ISIS et al who amazingly are wedded to a version of wahhabisim that is promoted and encouraged by Saudi Arabia  In addition, Britain helped to overthrow Ghadafi and de-stabalise Libya in the much lauded 'Arab Spring' and is now supporting and funding Syrian rebels against Assad. These rebels are largely made up of Al Nusra, who, for those who don't know, are strongly affiliated and linked to Al Qaeda. Honestly, you couldn't make this shit up. Not to mention that as Home Secretary, she cut funding to police and other essential emergency service. She was warned a couple of years ago by the police federation that if she cut police numbers we would be vulnerable to attack. She, in turn, accused the police federation of scaremongering and said that the cuts wouldn't change anything. Hmmm, looks like she was proven wrong.

Finally, in terms of the NHS and the increased privatisation. How can we trust a government to fully fund, staff and resource the NHS when a large number of cabinet MPs (the very core of the government) have shares and vested interests in private medical companies, who are being given very lucrative contracts to run services and hospitals around the country? There is a very insightful video doing the rounds  from Youtube all about the Conservatives plans  to implement the proposals of the Naylor Report (I'll provide a link).

When you actually understand what is covered and recommended in that report (which I have checked for myself and everything the guy says in the video is factual and accurate) it is absolutely terrifying and would basically crush the NHS for good. I make no wonder May and her government endorse it. I would urge each and every reader to take the time to watch the 11 minute Youtube video and consider the damage that this report will do to our NHS.

For these reason, I have decided to support Corbyn. I know Labour aren't perfect and what they propose may very well come to nothing.  I'm not stupid or naive enough to think they can provide a magic bullet of solutions. I know they can't, it would be impossible. That being said, I'm will to take a chance on hope as opposed to the hell that will definitely be the reality under a Conservative/May government.

Brexit: A few brilliant thoughts by Pat Condell

Basically, this gentleman sums up my thoughts on a fantastic result. I was going to write about this, but he has done my job for me. OK, so maybe that's a bit lazy, but if you can't say it any better, why not let someone else say it for you?

He hits the nail on the head. Enjoy.

A couple of recent points that have annoyed me about the silly people who intend to vote for us to stay in the EU

As the vitally important EU referendum approaches (I've already filled in my postal ballot with a X next to Leave) mud is being slung by both camps. However, there are a couple of points that I have been getting incredibly annoyed with.

First, I have several friends who work or worked for the NHS and all will vote Remain. This to me is total crazy. If we vote to remain later this month, the EU WILL sledgehammer TTIP through and that WILL kill off the NHS for good, as it will be swamped with American private healthcare insurance and business. We won't be able to stop that and I would argue within 5-10 years, we will have insurance based healthcare - shudder!

The fact remains that if we vote leave, we give ourselves a VERY SMALL chance of being able to fend off TTIP, if enough of this apathetic country finally wakes the hell up and gets off its backside and forces the Government to back down. Now, I realise that is asking a HUGE amount given our stiff-upper-lip, don't rock the boat mentality and our astounding lack or willingness to take direct action against our governments who continually shit all over us. However, I'm hopeful that for something like this, our country might finally get off its bum and fight back. We have done recently with the suggested and vile attempted attacks on disabled people and their benefits. The government were forced to back down over that issue.  Although, if it came to having to fight both our own government and the faceless, totalitarian behemoth that is the EU, I just know this pathetic country wouldn't have the stomach for it. It is one thing to stand up to your own government; it is asking WAY too much to expect us to fight two HUGE battles. I hope people can understand what I'm saying here.

This is why I'm totally infuriated with my friends misguided belief that it is better to remain within the corrupt, totalitarian EU, than stand on our own to protect our amazing NHS. It makes me want to scream. They rightly love the NHS, get so angry with Jeremy Hunt for all the crap he's caused, but yet they still will vote to remain. I just don't understand their thinking. I make no wonder Hunt is telling us to remain, because then when the EU does force through TTIP and destroys the NHS, he'll be able to sit back and say there was nothing he could do. It was an EU order that we let in all these American private healthcare companies to take over the NHS. It's win/win for him.

The second thing that has annoyed me is the attacks on Farage for saying that if we remain in the EU and are forced to take in a load of migrants from Syria, Algeria et al; there is a strong chance that we COULD (and that was the wording he used) see the same kind of sex attacks as we saw in Cologne. He is absolutely right to point that out. He's NOT saying it WILL happen, but that it could happen, there is a huge difference. That is not scaremongering, that is simply being honest. I'm not saying for one moment that all male migrants are vile sex attackers (of course they're not) I'm sure most of them are kind, gentle and decent people, who only want a better life. However, the fact remains that if (and it is a big if) we do have to take in migrants from that part of Africa/Middle East we ARE taking in people whose attitude towards women (though again let me stress that this not the case for all the people from those places) is, in large part, vastly inferior to our own. Therefore, it COULD lead to the same kind of issues that other European countries have increasingly experienced since the migrant crisis started.

I've voted to Leave and I hope Britain sees the light and does the same. I really do.

Jeremy Corbyn is Ned Stark in Game Of Westminster.

The disgusting, fabricated anti-Semitism row that has engulfed Labour over the past week is, I fear, the start of a putsch against Jeremy Corbyn. I'm not going to get into the details of the row, except to say that I broadly agree with Ken Livingstone and the other Labour MP about the evils of the Israeli, Zionist elite.  Now, as my readers will know, I'm no supporter of Labour, but I do feel that JC is  for all his faults - and there are many - an honest and decent politician, at least as honest and decent as a politician can be. I think he is principled and believes in traditional Labour ideas. That is probably why the many Blairites who still haunt the party can't stand him and want him out. They are arguably still reeling from the fact that one of their own didn't get the leaders job last year and the pesky grass-roots supporters used democracy to put someone in power that they wanted. Imagine that, the Labour party, the supposed party of the working man allowing its members to have a direct say in the running of the party. Good grief! Arguably, that was what really pissed the Blairites off. That was the whole problem with Blairism; it was complete style over substance and was about as far removed from democracy as you could feasibly get without going over the threshold into complete totalitarianism. Although some, like me, would argue that it was completely totalitarian in nature and ideology. But I digress, slightly.

Anyway, this manufactured row is nothing but the warning shots being fired at JC. It is the first salvo in the battle to have him removed. I would bet good money that if Labour don't make significant gains in this month's local elections, the Blairities will use that as the excuse they need to oust their leader. Now, historically, Labour are far more tolerant of their leader than say the Tories, who can organise a coup very easily if need be. However, after the disaster that was Milliband and now Corbyn, the disgruntled factions within the party will be looking for any and every excuse they can find to kick him out. In this respect I've always thought of JC as a bit like Ned Stark from GOT. Honest, principled and loyal, but rather weak and out of his depth and totally unprepared to play the Game of Westminster. Granted he was a very militant back-bencher and often voted against his own party, specifically under Blair, but that was ill training for the role he now finds himself in. Much as Ned did himself when he moved to Kings Landing. I just wonder which member of the Labour party will take the role of Joffrey and order Corbyn's head removed. Tragically, there are far too many traitors to choose from.

Stop being so apathetic and letting this government screw over the most vulnerable in our society. WAKE UP!

The ONLY true saying in politics that I've ever heard is the one that says: 'The people get the politicians and the Governments they deserve.'

I've been in two minds about writing this post because over the last 6 months or so I've found myself becoming more and more depressed with the state that our country finds itself in. I've been caught up in the frame of mind that screams " What FING good does it do!" However, over the past two months I've found myself becoming so incredibly angry that I feel I must write, I must speak out and I must do my best to get people thinking.

For me, as I've said many times on this blog; our collective sense of apathy and that misplaced stoic, stiff-upper-lip don't rock the boat mentality is killing us. It might work great in war time, but for everything else it makes us easy targets for being screwed. We are increasingly becoming our own willing, compliant prisoners in a vile and heartless political game of divide and conquer.  The two major issues that have arisen recently have been the NHS doctors strikes and last week's shocking and purely evil attack on disabled people. As much as I blame and hate the politicians and MSM for lying to us and deliberately manipulating us, my anger is increasingly turning to the people of this country for being such stupid, willing sheep. WAKE THE HELL UP!

Tomorrow is Budget day, when Gideon will stand in the commons and lie to us about how well the economy is doing, how strong it is, how well he has done as chancellor. In fact, the truth is he has MISSED every single one of his fiscal targets for the last 6 years. NOT ONE OF THEM HAS HE COME CLOSE TO ACHIEVING. We have the lowest growth in terms of productivity and wages since records began. Yet he and his governmental pals have allowed endless tax breaks for the super wealthy, have allowed all MPs a 10% rise, whilst the average worker has had to endure a 1% wage increase for the last 6 years (which given the cost of living and inflation has really meant a significant wage decrease). Gideon, has done shady, back-door deals with companies like Google so they can work out how much tax they'd like to pay back, instead of paying back the billions they actually owe. Incidentally, several of Google's big wigs also hold crucial advisory roles within this Conservative government. Furthermore, Gideon and his child were flown out to the recent Super Bowl (all allegedly paid for by Google) only a couple of days after this incredible deal was made - which was then spun every which was as a resounding success for the chancellor and HMRC. What a load of bullshit.

Added to which, we are told to prepare tomorrow for even more cuts to vital public services. Ask yourselves this. If our economy is doing so well, why the hell do we need even more austerity, more food banks and cuts to things which most of us badly need, whilst the Tory toffs and their mates get  a whopping 10% pay rise and tax breaks? Again, I urge people TO WAKE UP!
Although, perhaps the most disgusting recent attack was the £30 cut to disabled benefits by Mr. Ian Duncan Smith and his department (which was stealthily rushed through parliament using a little known clause that allows MPs to vote things through without the approval of the Lords). Again, incidentally, this was voted for by ALL Conservative MPs. A government that can attack and make things worse for the most vulnerable and sick in our society has shown how heartless and corrupt it really is. Yet, perhaps the most shocking aspect of all this is the disgusting sense of apathy by the British people. We are letting this shit happen to us!
It is well past time this country mobilised as a collective force, took to the streets and called a mass general strike to force the government to back down. How much more will it take before this pathetic country says ENOUGH?!

I'm reminded of the poem (though I can't remember the name or the author) which talks about how someone didn't say anything when they came for the sick, the old, this group, that group, until one day the government came for them, but then there was nobody left to protest. (if somebody knows which one I'm referring to please drop a note in the comments).

As I have noted many times in this blog, it is all very well moaning about austerity and the wicked government in the pub or on message boards, comment sections, but until those of us who can, get up off our backsides and take direct and sustained action, nothing will change. As the quote goes: 'All that is needed for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing.'

As a disabled person myself, I am very limited in what I can do and I do see the irony perhaps about venting my anger on a blog, instead of going out there and fighting when that is what I'm encouraging others to do. However, I feel I have a very valid excuse (and in my youth when I was able I did take part in a couple of protests).
t is high time we put aside our apathy and started to fight and challenge the government. We are many in number, they are few. If we work together collectively, they would have to back down. However, it won't happen until we wake up, stop being so typically British and start giving a damn about ourselves and our country as a whole. I fear time is fast running out when we won't be able to stop this. It is time to say ENOUGH!
