Brexit will not make Britain great again as some people think that it might. The reality is that Britain is actually going backwards harking back or looking back nostalgically to the days of Empire and colonialism. Brexit was essentially a vote of the older generation. Brexit will not make Britain great again nor will it bring back Britain’s Empire or Colonial past for this older generation. We also have to ask if this ageing generation should have been allowed to have such an influence on future generations to come or was this a huge mistake?
Basically we all get fed up of listening to the news and hearing about violence and the poor state of the British Economy. This article is how to make Britain great again. It is not easy there are no easy solutions to make Britain great again. Tough choices need to be made and even tougher policies need to brought in to tackle the rot of British Society and make Britain great again. How to make Britain great again is not a cosmetic makeover it is a rebuild up with stronger decision making tackling the toughest issues that face Britain today. There are many ways and conflicting opinions about how to make Britain great again and a much nicer place for us all to live in. So what is stopping us striving for and achieving a greater Britain in the future. Here are some of my thoughts about the things that we could put into place now to make Britain great now and achieve an even greater Britain in the future.
A sure fire way to get the utilities and railways back into public ownership and the less costly way of achieving this.
Yes I admire the ambition of the Labour Party Manifesto and it’s aim to get the Gas and Electricity utilities and railways back into public ownership. Success of this would lead to a more prosperous and fairer Britain and it would be the start of a new era for Britain. Yes it is high time to reverse the failed privatisations of Margaret Thatcher and John Major, and this would be a move which would put Britain on track again. However the scale and the cost of the task is dauntingly enormous and Thatcher knew how difficult it would be to ever go backwards. She tried to make her privatisations irreversible in an attempt to frustrate any attempts to ever develop socialism in Britain. She thought that she had had the final word but despite this there was a fundamental flaw in her plan and one which the Labour Party could exploit if it is savvy enough.
Some newspapers and the Tories are trying to convince us that Britain is now a classless society with class mobility to all levels but is this true and in whose interests is it to make us actually believe this? Is this simply a strategy in the ongoing Class War in Britain.
The Newspaper in general may have outlived it’s usefulness. It is after all strongly edited for political bias to represent its own interests and the views of their owners/bosses. Other information is now available and getting heard that is not so strongly censored nor representative of only a small minority. Freedom of speech is now more achievable than ever because of the accessibility of the Internet where some aspects of censorship can be overcome and the voice of both socialism and the youth can now be expressed far more freely than ever before without censorship from powerful newspaper editors. Newspapers have always sought to limit change and to suppress a voice and platform for socialism in Britain. Through censorship or false representation of socialist policies (Loony Left was a derogatory term coined by many of these newspapers to undermine socialist values) they have succeeded in limiting political choice for the masses and this could be viewed as actively sabotaging choice in the political electoral system of Britain by exerting pressures to manipulate political parties to either adopt or curtail political aspirations. One particular newspaper, the Sun tabloid newspaper, has done this whilst attaining mass appeal amongst the working classes whilst subversively encouraging divisiveness in order to prevent any sense of class realisation and class identity whilst also seeking to undermine the institutions which promote the interests of the working classes. This paper the Sun tabloid newspaper and it has been and still remains ‘the Cuckoo of British Class Warfare‘.
There seems to be some confusion in Britain about the word Socialism. Socialism is a system of economics that works to benefit a greater portion of society and in doing so strives to be fairer. Socialism is not Communism and it is not Militant it is just that these organizations do use certain elements drawn from Socialism. But whilst they do employ and apply Socialism and Socialist principles they apply them in more extreme ways. If Britain were to adopt socialist policies it would be both a fairer and more prosperous place. It would largely be a better place to live. It would not resemble Russia or China or any other Communist Country and it would not mean that enterprise was stifled or curtailed as the Tories would like you to believe. Instead it would have: improved NHS, better transport system, better roads, lower taxation, improved education system and cheaper fuel bills for everyone in Britain. This list could also go on to include better policing and improved council services and the list could go on.
Socialism in Britain has been discredited by those with a vested interested to do so
The reasons why there has been attempts to discredit Socialism in Britain lie in a number of vested interests. Traditionally the majority of the media in Britain has been controlled by some very wealthy people desperate to hang onto power. Who controls the media can also control the masses by telling them lies. Newspapers like ‘the Sun’ held campaigns in association with the Tories to propel people like Margaret Thatcher to power but switched allegiance only when it saw no real left wing threat from Tony Blair. This basically amounted to brainwashing the masses and the working classes into believing that any left wing policy that introduced elements of socialism was bad for Britain and was in itself an implicit threat of Communism. Such is the power of newspapers to actually do this. Socialist Principles have been artificially distorted, suppressed and discredited in Britain because of the vested interests of the wealthy and powerful protecting their own interests and using the media to wield this enormous power and influence to control the population. For example the chances of me being able to publish this and deliver it to you in an un-edited form such as this has only really come about through the internet. People power to express themselves in this way is something quite unique in history. Censorship and control of expression has been taking place for centuries in Britain and still occurs today even despite the internet in some parts of the world. The internet though is a unique tool bypassing the controls of the wealthy and powerful who have controlled the media and hence controlled the working classes.
I have decided to write yet another article on the provision of Gas, Electricity and Rail Fares here in Britain. The reason I am doing this is because as new generations come along they have to understand that things have not always been like this and nor do they have to continue to be like this. The only reason that the provision of Gas, Electricity and Rail Fares have become so expensive is because of the Conservative’s Policies that led to privatization of these services dating back to the the late 70’s and through to the 90’s. The supply of these services has since been held at artificially high prices passed on to the consumers since being privatised. This notion must not be lost in the ether of future generations and neither must these newer generations accept what has happened here in Britain. The current state of affairs is morally wrong and must be reversed at some point in the future. The past can be reversed and the provision of Gas, Electricity and Rail fares can be made to be a much fairer system benefiting everybody in the United Kingdom. Privatization must be reversed and these services handed back to the public to be run for the benefit of everyone not just a handful of greedy shareholders. As a result costs to the consumer will be reduced and profits re-distributed fairly throughout the British Economy. Every future generation must be told about the robbery that took place under the guise of privatization led by Margaret Thatcher and finished off by John Major. Pass this onto your children do not forget what took place. The future must see this wrong-doing finally undone.
All this shuttling back and forth between London and Brussels is surely unnecessary! Surely Theresa May could put simple questions like ,’Can we have an extension please? or ‘Could you reconsider the Irish Backstop question?’ in an email to Brussels. Why does she have to go in person to make simple requests, it’s so old fashioned and outdated? However i don’t know why I am so surprised by the fact that she has not got to grips with email yet as I have mentioned in other articles she is out of touch with the will of the British people and she is so blinkered that she is now out of control like a runaway train. To be blunt she is a political dinosaur due for extinction. She has not caught up to the fact that the slender 3.8% majority that once supported Brexit has now long gone and there is now a new ‘will of the British People’ to stop Brexit. Maybe if she had email she might be a little more in touch with both Brussels and with British Public Opinion
Whether it is deal or no deal, Brexit is now no longer the ‘will of the British People’. The 3.8% majority in favour of Brexit has now gone and Brexit is no longer the’ will of the people’. The slender majority that initially supported Brexit has been eroded now by realities and realisations of the impact of Brexit either in a no deal scenario or with a poor deal ala Theresa May’s Deal.
Brexit is now dead in the water, it’s 3.8% majority has gone and our politicians need to catch up fast to the new ‘will of the people’
Brexit is now dead in the water and despite this our politicians seem to be ploughing on regardless with cloth ears. The Prime Minister, Theresa May, in particular is the biggest culprit. She is now out of step with public opinion because the 3.8% majority in favour of Brexit has now been eroded to nothing and Brexit is no longer the ‘will of the British People’. After all the bad publicity for Brexit it is inconceivable to imagine that a large proportion have not changed their minds and this is why we need a second referendum now that we have a clearer understanding about the implications of our exit from the EU. Despite this Theresa May is carrying on in a blinkered fashion like a demented racehorse, past its best and running at full speed until it finally exhausts itself and winds up in the knackers yard. British politicians and May in particular need to catch up with public opinion. 2 years is a long time in politics and the EU Referendum was now a very long time ago and public opinion in relation to Brexit has now changed.
The Brexit 3.8 % has almost certainly eroded away now that the reality of the implications of EU are becoming clearer. News about the possible outcomes of Brexit is now becoming much clearer with investment in the UK declining and big businesses pulling up roots and walking. Prices of goods are set to rise and there is a possibility of food shortages. Public opinion and desire for Brexit, either with deal or no deal, has almost certainly eroded away the meagre 3.8% majority it had over 2 years ago. Despite all this Theresa May and the out of touch politicians in Government seem oblivious to this change in public opinion and are still determined to push through to complete Brexit regardless. How out of touch and blinkered can they be to this change in public opinion? Opinions change over 2 years + and the desire to leave the EU has now dwindled considerably. Besides which you would have only to look at the overall composition of the British people to realise that the outcome of the original vote should have been adjusted to account for the composition of that vote which was racist, or lacked understanding of the underlying issues. In reality there is at least 3.8 % + of the British people that are racists, bigots, illiterate and just plain stupid. So in reality the vote should have been adjusted accordingly by factoring in the overall composition of British Society to nullify their impact on the overall outcome of the vote. Instead we have been held to account by a small majority representing the most unpleasant and unsavoury side of British Society. Great Job!
Theresa May faces an unenviable Brexit dilemma. Not only can she not satisfy the British Public because of her fudged proposals for the deal which is unlikely to satisfy what most Leavers voted for in the first place but neither will it satisfy those in her own party that require a stronger link with European Union following our exit or those that require a clean break with, and greater separation from, Europe at any cost. Neither can she let the process continue to a ‘No Deal’ scenario mainly because this outcome puts the Conservative Party at incredible future risks of becoming non electable for a extended period. This is a huge Brexit dilemma for Theresa May and the future of the Conservative Party as a whole.
I have been searching to find a recipe for chicken fried rice that tastes anything close to what I have come to expect from a local takeaway. I have looked online and through my many recipe books including those by well known celebrity chefs and those that specialise in oriental style cookery. I have tried those recipes for fried rice which have really left me quite underwhelmed with the results. So far I have drawn a complete blank with those sources. It seems that either this is a well guarded secret or that the very title given to the dish ‘Chicken fried rice’ is actually a complete misnomer: a red herring perhaps designed to obscure the truth regarding how the dish should actually be prepared.
Let’s be honest I think Wreck it Ralph could do a better job of the Brexit negotiations than either Theresa May or (yawn-go-to-sleep, I’m simply uninterested anyway, laughing stupidly) David Davis. Not to mention the exceptional wrecking abilities of Boris Johnson who basically wrecks anything that he comes into contact with including his own political career, the Country and his own Conservative Party to name just a few. So it has occurred to me a better solution to our relationship with Europe and our economic policies is to put Wreck it Ralph in charge of Britain and let’s put this one to the the people’s vote. Most people know the animated character of Wreck it Ralph and have a better understanding of what he stands for than say Theresa May or Jeremy Corbyn even, so I am sure that the British Public would vote for him if they saw him on an electoral ballot sheet. Letting the country make a contribution to the wrecking of Britain (Wreckbrit) and our economic future might be a good idea anyway and a political vote winner; oh but wait a minute that is what has already happened isn’t it? It also appears that all 4 of these characters ( with the exception of Corbyn I might add who has not yet been given the opportunity yet to wreck anything) have something in common they are all good at wrecking things. The only difference is that Wreck it Ralph only wrecks things in an animated world that is not real. All the others either directly wreck things that matter or support the wrecking of things that matter and have importance for the future economic stability of Britain and the future well-being of it’s citizens. This is a process that I now declare as Wreckbrit.
If in doubt hike up the taxes. Despite the poor and those suffering through Austerity raise the taxes even more. Again it’s 2 fingers up to those poor ‘Jams’.
What is wrong with the British People and why are they such gluttons for punishment. Year by year our incomes become diminished through: utility price rises, spurious taxes (Sugar Tax), Rail Fare hikes and; the costs of goods, food and basic services increasing. Yet still our pay remains frozen or rises at a significantly lower rate than inflation and yet we still put up with it and muddle through. Britain is reverting back to the Victorian times again where we see: charities helping out the poorest sectors of society with a reliance upon philanthropy rather than state policies to support the poorest (which are more often than not the actual cause of the problems), massive rises in homelessness; and the belligerent exploitation of the plight of the poorest by wealthy landlords or unscrupulous employers. Most of us have become victims to this predatory behaviour from the wealthier classes either through our working conditions/practices or simply as a result of the all encompassing feedback we all get from Tory policies and their ideologies. Many of us are caught in a poverty trap just scrapping by and unable to afford to save to buy a home of our own. This simply will not do despite the sham, shallow concern expressed by Prime Minister Theresa May during her ‘JAM’ period, where she tried to convince you that she was concerned but time has revealed this not to be the case. This is position for which she has no real concerns for the plight of the exploited at all. Instead whole generations are being doomed to exist in this lifestyle: being exploited by low wages, few opportunities, dead end jobs or zero hours contracts. The Tories have always insisted that work should pay and they have oft used this as their justification and rallying cry to persecute the poorest unfortunate enough to have to rely on the Benefits System with repeated systematic attacks on the Benefits System in the UK. Yet despite this for the majority in low paid employment work simply is not paying nor bringing about any sort of rewards at all that you would associate with the effort required. This is not good enough! There is really no hope in sight for change: or is there?
