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).
I
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!


WAKE UP AND START FIGHTING!

Pat Condell is absolutely right

I can't say or write this any better myself, so I'll let this gentleman sum up my thoughts in 6 minutes of excellence. Enjoy.

A few more thoughts on the migrant crisis

A few more thoughts on the migrant crisis.

Firstly, I am absolutely disgusted to hear that the surrounding Arab/Muslim countries have refused point blank to help these refugees.  Thus far they haven't accepted a single refugee. That to me speaks volumes about how compassionate, united and open the Islamic faith really is. If these wealthy and large neighbouring countries can't and won't even help their fellow Muslims, what does that tell you about the religion of peace? The dark irony here is that if these refugees were allowed to settle in those countries it would be far easier for them to integrate into those societies, given that they share a similar culture, religion and values. Instead, the idiots over here have started another ill thought out, bleeding heart campaign, welcoming the migrants. As I mention in my last post, once these people leave the first safe country they come to, whilst fleeing the horrors in Syria, they are no longer refugees, they then become economic migrants. You may think that is cold and harsh, but it is a fact.
Peter Hitchens wrote an excellent article in his MOS column yesterday about the migrant crisis. As usual he hits the nail on the head with everything he has to say about it. He also echoes many of my fears about the impact that allowing several thousand more Muslims (possibly up to 40,000) will have on our communities, our schools, hospitals and housing. I believe he also talks about how this influx will help to weaken our own native culture and destroy our identity, and possibly help speed up the rate by which this country could soon be converted into a predominantly Muslim one. We must NEVER allow that to happen. I hate violence and confrontation nor am I condoning, encouraging or wishing for it. However, if it came to a civil war I would fight with everything I had to make sure this country was not taken over by the vile quasi-religious culture that is Islam. I make no apologies for wanting to protect my Anglo-Saxon, English values, cultures and democracy, which I strongly believe is far superior to that of Islam. Furthermore, in terms of security, the papers are today full of stories about how IS are bragging that they've used the cover of the migrants to secretly get lots (possibly thousands) of their sleeper agents/bombers into Europe. Now, granted, that may be all bluster and rubbish and I hope that it is. However, something tells me there is more than a grain of truth to those statements. If that does indeed prove to be the case Europe and Britain are in HUGE trouble. This is another reason why we should NOT be taking in anymore migrants until we have purged the middle-east of these nut jobs. As I said in my last post, I am not without sympathy for these poor people, but we must look after our own country first and protect our own people before helping anyone else. In this regard, I completely agree with Australia's stance on migrants. Yes it may be cold and harsh, but at least they have the balls and the guts to put their own country and people first. If only we had politicians with the stomach to do the same. 

Secondly, another interesting point that was made about this crisis, both by Peter Hitchens and by a few people I know who have recently travelled through Calais, is that the vast majority of the people who are coming across the Mediterranean and ending up in places like Calais are young men in their 20-30s. Many of them are also from Africa, not just Syria and Libya, but the rest of the continent. Now, call me cynical, but doesn't that further emphasis that this is far more about economic migration, than simply a refugee crisis? Of course the MSM and the bleeding heart liberals won't dare mention this as it doesn't fit their narrative. This just goes to prove the old saying that in war the first casualty is always the truth.


Finally, the last thing which has really disturbed me this weekend was when I saw the father of those two little drowned boys going back to the family home in Syria to show journalists around. Something about that struck me as terribly wrong. If things in Syria really are so bad and horrible with the civil war and IS breathing down your neck; so horrible that you rightly and understandably flee with your family to the safety of Turkey and then try and get into Europe, which results in the heartbreaking death of your children. Why on earth would you go back to the country you were fleeing from? To my mind, even if he is trying to show the world the horrors they were trying to escape, it still makes his children's' death a sham and a slap in their faces. In any case that idea doesn't work on me. To me if things are so bad (and I'm not saying they're not) you do NOT go back to Syria for ANY reason. I would argue that you don't sully the awful deaths of your children by going back to the hell hole you were desperate to flee from. There was just something about seeing that which didn't sit right with me and made me feel very uncomfortable. I'll leave it up to you, readers of this blog, to make up your own minds as to why the father decided to do that.
