Brexit will not make Britain great again

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?

Competition is the way forward for the public ownership of Gas and Electricity in Britain

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.

Is Britain a now a classless society or is this just another strategy in British Class Warfare?

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.

Beware the Sun tabloid newspaper is a Cuckoo in Britain’s Class War

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‘.

Socialism offers a better future for Britain. Socialism is not Communism nor Militant

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.

Paying too much for Gas, Electricity and Rail Fares: This is Great Britain

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.

Don’t Get Sucked In by Dyson

Are Dyson really good vacuum cleaners or is it just hype? Well my partner bought one recently and I am now thinking that she was quite literally sucked in by the hype. In my opinion what we got was a vacuum cleaner that was inferior to models at least half its price. I am now encouraging her to send it back and get a refund. Quite literally this vacuum struggles to suck up any form of hairs on carpets. All it does is just push it around and into a ball unless you use the smallest nozzle to pick up every individual ball of hairs it makes. So it comes with a large head and a very small head. The small head is good enough but I really do not see why I should have to do all the hoovering throughout the house with a pin sized head to make up for the deficiencies of the proper tool. Quite literally then the only thing that this Dyson model seems to suck up is the suckers who seem to be falling for the Dyson hype and their inflated prices.

Voting Lib Dems to support a Second Brexit Referendum is needed to persuade Labour to offer the same

I hate to do this but I think the best course of action in local Elections and in forthcoming Euro Elections is to vote Lib Dems. The Labour Party seem reluctant to offer the second referendum option on Brexit  because they think it will hurt their popularity ( basing this on the 3.8 % majority which supported Brexit- which is now basically obsolete).  Well news is that it really wont and they need to be offering the Second Referendum otherwise they themselves will be hurt by a swing of voters who are prepared to go to the Lib Dems because they are offering the Second Brexit Referendumt. Many people will consider this the most important debate in politics at the moment with the greatest impact upon the economic future of Britain and this is why they are or may be willing to abandon Party allegiances in favour of doing what is right for Britain.

Labour need to catch up with the increasing demand for a second Brexit referendum both inside and outside the Party otherwise suffer heavy consequences

Labour have dragged their feet too long now o the question of whether they will or will not offer a Second Referendum. Time is now running out for them as they struggle to find an answer. they could find themselves getting left behind by the charge of voters who want a Second Brexit Referendum. I would include myself in this.

How much more Tory incompetence can we take?

So far Theresa May’s Government have achieved- well nothing at all! Brexit is failing or should I say Grayling (is it just a coincidence that Grayling rhymes with Failing?) because this is the new word and standard by which we should judge gross incompetence relating to public affairs.  The only person in the UK to actually benefit from the Theresa May’s incompetence regarding Brexit is Chris Grayling because it has thrown the spotlight off his incompetencies and still the embattled Prime Minister seems unable to deal effectively with both the Brexit issue and with the gross incompetence of Chris Grayling. He must be hoping that this situation continues. Is there any other position where you could cost your employer billions of pounds in losses and still retain your position in the organization? Not in the real world but this kind of behaviour seems acceptable to this Tory Government and to Theresa May.

Chris Grayling should be removed from Office immediately to protect the public from further financial disasters

Chris Grayling should be removed from Public Office immediately to stop and prevent anymore catastrophes blighting the public purse. The Tories clearly cannot be trusted to manage the public finances if they are willing to tolerate this level of incompetence. Grayling has to go now to guard the public finances against further mismanagement. Stop paying for his incompetence! Get rid and stop paying him to be a Minister.

Why should the Public have to settle for this level of incompetence and lack of respect for public funds?

Meanwhile the Prime Minister has taken her eye off everything besides her continuing and perpetual Brexit Dilemma. Theresa May is quite simply a Prime Minister who cannot cope because she is not dealing with anything satisfactorily. She is not dealing with incompetence  relating to others or to herself and her Party.  Quite simply this is a Prime Minister and a Government that have become bogged down and ineffectual. The Tories are becoming a National Embarrassment and are unable to properly govern this Country. It is quite shameful that Grayling has been let off and allowed to stay in post. So why should the public settle for this level of incompetence and lack of respect for public funds from elected Ministers because it would not be tolerated in any other occupation or organization. He is a National Embarrassment and Theresa May should be ashamed of herself and of her own Graylings.

Brexit is dead in the water and staying in the EU is now the most popular option

Brexit is dead in the water and staying in the EU is now the most popular option amongst the British People. How do I know this because if you check out the House of Commons Petition Site@ Petitions-UK Government you will see that the amount of people actually signing the petition to abandon Article 50 and remain in the EU is far more popular than the petitions requesting to Leave the EU without a Deal and another to honour the Referendum Result. The Petition to stay in the EU and abandon Brexit is actually 9x higher in popularity than its closest rival. This should put away any doubt that the meagre 3.8% majority in favour of leaving the EU actually exists any longer because it does not. It has long gone now that the realities of leaving the EU are coming home. Continue reading Brexit is dead in the water and staying in the EU is now the most popular option

Hasn’t Theresa May heard of email?

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

3.8% Majority has gone and Brexit is no longer the ‘will of the people’

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.

Brexit’s 3.8 % has almost certainly gone but May carries on regardless

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! 

May’s Brexit dilemma

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.

Chicken fried rice- a well kept secret

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.
