There are as many positive stories in the world to report as there are
negative. There are millions of people doing good actions every day,
extraordinary acts of kindness and bravery showing the true human spirit.

The media in the western world is pessimistic. Negative stories are easy to
sell to a cynical public and easy for the organs of the reporting to put a
negative spin on every story. With 24 hour rolling news it has become
wall to wall negativity as the various news stations compete to fabricate
stories to outrage, horrify and shock the public, to undermine people,
governments and institutions, to destroy the very fabric of stable and happy
lives. The presenters, news men and women, are extortionately over-paid,
mentally fat, self satisfied and contribute absolutely nothing to humanity
unlike the brave journalists of the past. If you pay someone between £300,000
and £500,000 to read an autocue, they are just going to do as they are told,
not rock the gravy boat, they are media dummies.

There are so many of these useless, talking shop individuals on the media,
they have spread like a disease with an ‘expert’ opinion on everything,
spouting endless drivel on things that will never happen, feigning they can
see it all with their sixth sense. They are no better than charlatan astrologers,
the Mystic Megs and Russell Grants of the news media.

Nothing worse than seeing and listening to a crashing bore of them gathered
to do a Press Review or for some other inane self-opinionated discussion. What
makes them think their dogmatic, inflexible views hold any weight, what makes
them think their drooling drivel is better than anyone else's? Of course they’re
being paid.

There are so many positive stories to report, it’s time the media changed to show
mankind in a positive light before they destroy all our future’s.

11th December 2017 - The Country Club Membership

The EU The Politburo

*

When you sign up to being a member of a gym or for a contract with a
mobile phone company, it’s great in the beginning but then as time passes
the terms change. You don’t like the new terms or you can get a better deal
elsewhere; so what do you do, you cancel your contract. You’d expect them
to let you cancel easily it said so in the original contract and they have a legal
obligation to let you go. However this is not always the case, various mobile
phone companies and gyms for instance make it extremely difficult if not
impossible to get out of a contract as do various other clubs and services people
sign up for. How frustrating is that and would you ever join them again or
recommend them to your friends?

The European Union with it’s unelected bureaucrats are making it extremely
difficult for Britain with its long history of democracy to leave the undemocratic
European Club but worse than the mobile phone companies, gyms etc. they also
want to punish us for daring to want to leave. Who would want to be a member
of such a club that is so inflexible in its ways that does not allow change and that
is run by a centralist politburo of old men?

Let the EU go back to the basic principles of Free Trade and get rid of all the
political interference in sovereign countries. The desire for political union is
driven by those very same power-crazed old men who have probably never
done a productive day’s work in their life. Undemocratic, political idealism at
this level leads to fascism which is the road the EU is heading down and hence
the treatment of Great Britain by the petty European dictators.

Laughter the best medicine.

Putin must have choked on his cornflakes with laughter when he
read the latest about Brexit. Now apparently the Remoaners are saying
that we voted Brexit because Putin brainwashed us all. Same as people
in America voted Trump due to Russian influence in their media.

So let me get this straight, all the politicians, the businesses and the media
including the Biased Broadcasting Company (aka the BBC) couldn’t
persuade the British people to remain in Europe with all their money and
control and neither could the rich and powerful backers of Hillary Clinton
with the hatchet job they did on Trump persuade the American people to vote
for her and all because Putin put a few advertisements in the media.

If that is the case we in the West should lay down all our weapons now and let
Putin run the Western World as he is far too clever for all our business leaders
and politicians. In fact I’m surprised he hasn’t already persuaded us to do just
that considering how much influence he has over us all.

These must be desperate times for those in society on the losing sides, Remainers
and Democrats, to come up with such derisory arguments and worrying for the rest
of us as they try to undermine the democratic process. Do they only believe in
the democracy when they are the winners?

Time to celebrate the end of Murderer Mugabe?

Blair Mugabe

Those in league with the devil live a long time.

It's the age, old story of money and power and the slide into corruption.
We can only hope that all the people in Zimbabwe can now find a better
future.

Blair and Mugabe should have read Shelley's poem on Futility

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

Ozymandias - Percy Bysshe Shelley

Dulce et Decorum Est by Wilfred Owen


*
Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,
Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs,
And towards our distant rest began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots,
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind;
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of gas-shells dropping softly behind.

Gas! GAS! Quick, boys!—An ecstasy of fumbling
Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time,
But someone still was yelling out and stumbling
And flound’ring like a man in fire or lime.—
Dim through the misty panes and thick green light,
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.

In all my dreams before my helpless sight,
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.

If in some smothering dreams, you too could pace
Behind the wagon that we flung him in,
And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a devil’s sick of sin;
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues,—
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori.
Latin phrase is from the Roman poet Horace:
“It is sweet and fitting to die for one’s country.”

The Paradise Papers - Paradise Lost


A never ending story of greed and immorality.

Sadly with the revelations in the Bermuda Paradise Papers we can
see again the extent of global corruption which successive governments
worldwide have done nothing to curtail and have in fact brought in
legislation to help these grasping individuals and corporations to avoid
paying tax. The Apple Corporation is by far the worst example but
they are not alone.

Even the British Queen, the head of state, has been squirrelling away
her millions to avoid paying tax to fund our schools, our Health service,
to help the poor and the old.

It is estimated that between 300 billion and 600 billion dollars is avoided
in tax every year, yes every year; money that should be going to all of us
to provide a better world.

It is legal because the rich make the rules with their friends in governments.
A civilised world would not allow the rich to become richer on the backs of
the less well off in society but we live in a very sick world where capitalism
is out of control.

WHO for Sale?

The Devil Mugabe

*

If you ever doubted that the most loathsome and corrupt individuals
get to the top of world institutions you only need to look at the recent
appointment of Robert (butcher) Mugabe as goodwill ambassador to the
World Health Organisation (WHO). Mugabe is a man who has starved,
massacred, executed and destroyed his own people by the hundreds of
thousands while he and his obnoxious family spend millions on luxuries.
There is no care and certainly no health care in his country.

They have withdrawn the offer to Mugabe due to a massive backlash but
the new head of WHO, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has not been
sacked. So either he was bribed by Mugabe or he hasn’t read any news
for the last 20 years, both scenarios make this man unsuitable for any
office in any country let alone a world institution. The world MUST
remove this man but of course they won’t.

What next making Jacob Zuma the head of the World Bank?

I weep with you Nelson Mandela.

The bigger the institution the less oversight and the more corrupt they are
especially if there is vast amounts of money involved; FIFA (football), the
IOC (Olympics), BANKS, the UN, the EU; all corrupt through and through.

This is our world, a world for all of us, we must take it back from the greedy
corrupt individuals that have taken more than they could ever spend in a
thousand lifetimes and continue to take it. We are all being fleeced, robbed,
mugged, cheated by the most disgusting human beings on this planet.

They put the evil in devil.

We must fight to take back our world!

In memoriam Daphne Caruana Galizia and Western Democracy.

*

We must all cry for Justice or cry for the lack of justice and the death of
democracy. Cry for this brave, beautiful women and mother who stood
for decency and honesty, cry for her three sons; not murdered by your
run of the mill gangster but by politicians and businessmen.

We cannot let this lie! We cannot let her lie in her coffin without justice.
We should all be outraged; it is the end of what is left of the vestiges of our
freedom in a ‘modern’ Europe if we let the respectable, suit-wearing men in
government and in business kill those that fight against corruption.

So what are the European Union going to do about the gangster state of Malta;
nothing!, for the leaders are the same suit wearing men and women with the
same deadly business associates. They are busy lining their own pockets and
the pockets of their family and friends. They have a long history of never
investigating the corruption at the heart of the EU e.g. where do the billions
go every year that are not accounted for; how do so many commissioners
and other EU officials become millionaires on a civil servants pay and
now the death of the brave Daphne Caruana Galizia who was a vocal
critic of the Malta’s corrupt political and business elite. We could have
guessed Malta was a rotten state, Tony Blair has just been toadying up
to the Prime Minister there.

Why aren’t there questions in the UK parliament, forget the toothless, craven EU.
We should demand sanctions against Malta until a full and thorough investigation
is carried out and the real perpetrators brought to justice. Britain should act on its
own, it has a long, proud, democratic history which is more than can be said for
most of the countries in the EU.

Where are the brave, investigative journalists that Britain and the West used to pride
itself on?
Hiding behind their safe studio desks, collecting their extortionate salaries, reading
the sanitised rubbish from the autocue and sneering at anyone that doesn’t agree with
their puerile, left wing ‘liberal’ agenda. Their world is secure even if the left wing
raving lunatics of Corbyn, McDonnell and Co. are elected and destroy the economy,
they can retire on their fat pensions to their foreign homes. We can’t rely on them to
find these evil, white collar criminals.

We may think we have freedom but just try standing up to the state or the rich and
powerful and we quickly find that Might and Money are Right. Who amongst us is
brave enough to stand up for real freedom and democracy not this illusion where we
have all been bought off with electronic gadgets to keep us happy, like the shiny beads
they used to sell the Red Indians, while the politicians and criminals abscond with the
real wealth. Daphne Caruana Galizia was brave enough, don’t let her die in vain.

POEM IN OCTOBER

It was my thirtieth year to heaven
Woke to my hearing from harbour and neighbour wood
And the mussel pooled and the heron
Priested shore
The morning beckon
With water praying and call of seagull and rook
And the knock of sailing boats on the webbed wall
Myself to set foot
That second
In the still sleeping town and set forth.

My birthday began with the water-
Birds and the birds of the winged trees flying my name
Above the farms and the white horses
And I rose
In a rainy autumn
And walked abroad in shower of all my days
High tide and the heron dived when I took the road
Over the border
And the gates
Of the town closed as the town awoke.

A springful of larks in a rolling
Cloud and the roadside bushes brimming with whistling
Blackbirds and the sun of October
Summery
On the hill's shoulder,
Here were fond climates and sweet singers suddenly
Come in the morning where I wandered and listened
To the rain wringing
Wind blow cold
In the wood faraway under me.

Pale rain over the dwindling harbour
And over the sea wet church the size of a snail
With its horns through mist and the castle
Brown as owls
But all the gardens
Of spring and summer were blooming in the tall tales
Beyond the border and under the lark full cloud.
There could I marvel
My birthday
Away but the weather turned around.

It turned away from the blithe country
And down the other air and the blue altered sky
Streamed again a wonder of summer
With apples
Pears and red currants
And I saw in the turning so clearly a child's
Forgotten mornings when he walked with his mother
Through the parables
Of sunlight
And the legends of the green chapels

And the twice told fields of infancy
That his tears burned my cheeks and his heart moved in mine.
These were the woods the river and the sea
Where a boy
In the listening
Summertime of the dead whispered the truth of his joy
To the trees and the stones and the fish in the tide.
And the mystery
Sang alive
Still in the water and singing birds.

And there could I marvel my birthday
Away but the weather turned around. And the true
Joy of the long dead child sang burning
In the sun.
It was my thirtieth
Year to heaven stood there then in the summer noon
Though the town below lay leaved with October blood.
O may my heart's truth
Still be sung
On this high hill in a year's turning.

Dylan Thomas

Laura Kuenssberg needs a bodyguard at the Labour Party Conference -
Labour supporters don't believe in balanced reporting and free speech.

Kinnock and Blair got rid of the left wing anti-democratic militants in the
party only for the rabble rouser Kim Jong Corbyn to let them back in under the
new name of Momentum. Corbyn who tries to present himself as a decent and honest
old man turns out to be as slippery as any politician when you try and pin him down
on practically any subject. He’s had a good few million out of the public purse in
salary and expenses and will get a gold plated pension but he still says that he doesn’t
consider himself wealthy on his salary of £170k a year. A typical socialist.

Like the Venezuelan politician who resigned from Chavez’s socialist government saying
that when the socialists politician talked about redistribution of wealth he didn’t
realise that it meant all the wealth would be redistributed to themselves. It’s
George Orwell’s Animal Farm – once they get into power they can’t help themselves
just look at Blair, Kinnock and Mandelson all who become extraordinarily wealthy.
Don’t let these people fool you they are only in it for themselves and have no idea
how to run a modern successful economy.

Quotes from John Mcdonnell
"If we have to, close off Parliament Square with thousands of people turning up,
close off Westminster Bridge. We used to call it insurrection. Now we're polite
and say it's direct action. Let's get back to calling it what it is. It's insurrection."

Referring to the coalition, he said: "We want to bring this Government down by whatever
means we have to bring it down. If that means calling every community organisation to
demonstrate on the same day about a vast range of issues to bring this country to a
standstill, let's start organising for it now.'
This man is clearly not fit to sit in in a modern democratic parliament.

As for wanting to take us back to the misery of the 1970s with badly run nationalised
Industries and the Unions back with all their powers, when Britain was the sick man of
Europe due to continuous strikes, I can only say that they have become a party that is
truly bankrupt of ideas.

The Rot of Western Society


Recent headline story – Not enough money, not enough specialists to care for the huge
increase in disturbed young people.

Money that is to mask the symptoms not tackle the causes. Any in depth analysis, any
thinking being much too difficult for the modern air-headed, sound-bite journalist.

The media always complaining, always criticising the incumbent governments for nor
having a bottomless pit of resources to deal with a decadent and declining society;
that is, the inane and irresponsible media that is hastening our decay.

The traditional media sold out to populism a long time ago and now reports a sanitised
view of the world, if it reports the real stories at all. There’s too much money in nice,
middle class journalism that disturbs no-one.

To get back to the headline - the reason there is a huge increase in mentally deranged
young people is because of the expansion of different kind of media, social media which
for many young people has become a world that is a virtual nightmare. These massive,
corporate, money making social media sites are killing our young people. They make vast
amounts of money at the expense of our young people.

If young people would get their faces out of their arses, as in looking at facebook,
youtube, twitter and all the other crass social media sites, they might find there is a
fantastic real world out there and not just a virtual world. Interaction with real people
and the real world is self and life affirming; constant interaction with a screen is deathly.
These corporate giants are making vast sums of money out of your misery.

I despair to see most people and not just young people constantly with their faces in their
phones; it is making you ILL. Look up people, there is a blue sky, there are trees, there are
flowers, there are other human beings, there is a magnificent and beautiful REAL world out there.
Switch off the screens; face reality. Live in the real world.

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower 
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand 
And Eternity in an hour

The BBC, George Orwell, Animal Farm and the Pigs


What have the publicly funded trendy, left-wing, multi-millionaires at the BBC put on for
us to watch tonight?

Just as I thought the usual rubbish – guess they don’t watch it – they can afford not to and
after paying their wages I guess they have no money left for decent programs.

Who and when did they say that people who work for the BBC should be paid disgusting amounts
of public money; put their hand into everyone’s pocket and steal their hard-earned cash?

They have become, through our money, your typical champagne socialist – do as I say not as I do.

When do any of these millionaires question if they are being paid too much from the public purse
but they are quite happy to preach to the rest of us knowing full well they have a gold-plated job
and a gold-plated pension which for all their professed socialist ideals they have absolutely no
intention of giving up one penny of.

If the people had a vote on it they would say sack the lot of the greedy bastards; they add absolutely
nothing to the benefit of society.

How does reading an autocue or talking about football or any of the inane activities these millionaires
undertake warrant being paid these astronomical salaries?

It’s yet another corrupt institution controlled by the greedy rich, for the greedy rich which the public
fund yet have no control over.

Same as football, same as Olympics, same as the EU, same as the UN etc. etc.

The time must be coming when the people can put an end to all this corruption.
