So far it would appear that the overridding findings of the Covid Enquiry are that if you give a clown the top job :he will create a Circus. The overall picture is emerging of a Government in crisis with a lack of effective leadership to deal with the crisis. Boris johnson even saw the enquiry as an opportunity to deny the findings of the Sue Gray Report and the resulting ‘Investigation’ by the Metroplotian Police. He attempted to refute the findings of both of these and to imply that the offences were not such a serious infringement afterall. There never was any chance that Boris Johnson would humbly attend the Inquiry and bring with him the truth. You have to be aware that this is a person who has allegedely lied to Parliament. What we got was just unconvincing waffle about what happed to missing Whats App messages. What we saw resembled a worm on a hook trying to wriggle off.
When will Israel stop? What we are seeing is the indiscriminate anger of a madman on a rampage. It’s unreasonable to cause this level of destruction to a civilian population. Israel seems to be content and intent on eliminating and controlling the whole of Gazza at any cost. Israel’s anger is unhumane and disproportionate and should no longer be supported by the American Government nor the British Government. Yes Hamas must be taken down but this can only be achieved by taking away Hamas’s power from within the population it serves. Isreal’s actions are simply serving as a recruiting campaign for Hamas and a justification. It’s up to the Palestinians themselves to act to defeat Hamas and find a leadership which better serves it population. To do this Isreal must stop persecuting the people of Palestine in thiis war on Gazza. Israel’s strategy is actually fuelling more anger against Israel and as such is counterproductive. The conditions in Gazza must be improved and the expecctation of Isreal must become more realistic and sane. Isreal cannot expect the population to continally be on the move at their will. Intense bombing of civilian areas has to stop. Already there is no where for these people to return to. Housing is now a huge issue as is obtaining and maintaining the basic fundamentals for health and life. Isreal has no right to bomb schools , nurseries nor hospitals and any such bombing should be seen as a war crime.
Kier Starmer is a chameleon without any convictions. He throws away any pretences of being a real Labour Party Leader by singing the praises of Margaret Thatcher. Did we need any more proof now that this man is a traitor to the Labour Party? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-67604830
Starmer has dropped every pledge that he made before he became the Labour Party leader
Kier Starmer is the man that cannot be trusted. He has dropped every pledge that he ever made to become the Leader of the Labour Party. STARMER’S ATTITUDE IS SIMPLY SELF SERVING IN THE SAME WAY THAT BORIS JOHNSON’S, AND TONY BLAIR’S WERE. SPURRED ON BY THEIR OWN VANITY TO ACTUALLY BECOME THE PRIME MINISTER AT ANY COST. Starmer will say and do anything to become Prime Minsister. He is a shapeshifter, a chameleon who wants to say the right thing at the right time to serve his own purposes and then he will cast them off again soon after just as easily. He lacks conviction and can quickly disassociate himself from thise committments that he made. Starmer is a slippery politician who basically cannot be trusted because he is motivated solely by self promotion. At first I found this difficult to see and accept but now it is apparent. It’s clear that Kier Starmer has no real convictions left because he has ditched them all along the way after being of use to him. in order to get the position of Labour Party Leader he appeased the left with pledges and assurrances that he would carry forward the key socialist principles of the Labour Movement resurrected by Jeremy Corbyn, but he has since ditched all these pledges and seems to have gravitated towards the resurrection of Blair’s ‘New Labour’ by bringing back into the cabinet many of Tony Blair’s old allies. Now not even content to pushing the Labour Movement back towards the bad old days of Blairism he wants to even appeal to the followers of Margaret Thatcher suggesting that she had some great qualities.
So how far has Labour actually swung to the right when it’s Leader is praising the work of Margaret Thatcher?
AI has 3 possible outcomes: you choose which one fits best.
The first thing you need to realise is that from the inception of Science Fiction writing there has been this notion that a future with machines will lead to a less complicated lifestyle for the human race as machines undertake most of the tasks that humans have to perform routinely in their daily lives in order to survive. This leads to a life of leisure for humans. What needs to be understood is that this Utopia was just a fictional ideal that in reality would never happen or only partially happen for those that have control of the machines. What would really happen is that, as machines take over the roles of humans, an underclass will be formed without any means to survive. Economics is formed by the interactions of humans with a means to engage ( money). As more machines take over human endeavour then 2 things could occur. He first would be a shrinking economic base as more and more humans are removed from the economic equation. Economics as we know it now could collapse in it’s entirety or there will have to occur a complete reassessment of how Economics works.
It is unlikely that there will be any reassessment of economics or any major redistribution of wealth to rebalance the equation, so from this point forward, and depending upon how Economics is implemented 2 things could happen. The first is if this underclass is formed it is likely to be in opposition to those who control the machines. Those that do control machines will most likely strive to protect their status and will use the machines to protect themselves from the ‘underclass’ and the underclass will cause distruption, sabotage and public disturbance. There will be looting and disruption in order for the underclass to survive since they have been removed from the economic equation and left without a means to survive (paid employment).
Take one thing away from the latest Labour Party Conference and that is Kier Starmer is basing his election Manifesto on wishful thinking. Labour has dropped all pretences of renationalising the key industries and has instead turned it’s favours towards businesses and market forces. Again distancing itself from it’s key Labour Values of re-nationalisation it moves closer and closer to the policies and ambitions of Tony Blair. In fact Starmer actually celebrated Blair in his speech. So now we have a Labour Party again bereft of real ambition and purpose, which is prepared to easily throw away or disregard key Labour Party Values.
Starmer had no real need to go to these lengths to moderate the Party or re-assign Blairite values because the Tories, and to some extent the SNP, have been handing Labour a victory at the next General Election on a plate. Starmer is a very nervous and over cautious leader who is influenced too much by public opinion and thiz has rubbed off on the Labour Party as a whole. There was never any need to deviate again from core Labour party values that Corbyn had re-established and certainly no need for self introspection and self-loathing that occurred after the last General Election defeat. The last Election was lost on a single issue of who was going to get rid of Brexit quickest and put the whole thing to bed. Nobody really looked at policies beyond that. It was a single issue election with no-one taking any interest in who had the best policies. Then we come to the next election which the Tories are simply gifting to Labour. Starmer is too nervous and too cautious but also has a profound vanity and desire to be a Prime Minister with or without values and purpose. He has turned the Labour Party into a gibbering wreck without a moral compass. He is dropping Labour Party Values and key policies continually and has been withholding ideas of it’s direction from the Party Membership. He is deliberately vague in order to disguise his true purpose. He has been harbouring a Blairist attitude and steering the Party towards a Blairist destination all along. He has withheld his true intentions from the Party membership whilst seeking to cash in on the increased level of support for key Labour Party Values that Corbyn had brought back to the Party. Do not forget that he was supportive of Corbyn’s policies whilst acting as Shadow Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union.
Starmer’s vision of Labour in government is bereft of any ambitions as he aligns the Party with Tony Blair again
Concerning the Partygate Fines why was Boris Johnson and other Tory Party Goers only fined £50 when other people were being given fines of upwards of £5000 and in some cases as much as £14,000? Why were these Partygate fines so disprotionate to other Lockdown fines. Why have the Metropolitan Police treated Partygate fines so leniently in comparison to other Lockdown Fines issued? There is a sense that the Partygate fines given were too lenient. Are other Lockdown Fines given out excessive and in comparison. How can the Met Police explain the disproportionality between these amounts? Have the Metropolitan Police got questions that need to be asked about why the fines given out to Tory Partygate attendees were so dimunitive? It appears that these people have been treated different from others who were also fined during Covid Lockdowns. Why was Partygate treated so superficially by the Metropolitan Police Force? Specifically why were these fines, given to Partygate attendees so diminutive in comparison to other fines that were metered out to ordinary people? Also being that the police had a presence at Downing Street throughout Lockdowns shouldn’t questions be asked as to why they apparently knew nothing or if they certainly did then why did they not act on it at the time? Why did it take a leak of information to bring the matter to the attention of the police?
The companies developing Artificial Intelligence (AI) are mainly interested in profit and ways to reduce the workforce. If they see an opportunity to replace a Human with a robot they will. If a task that a human currently does can be done by AI they will make it. Companies are falling over backwards for this kind of opportunity to maximise their profits. Greedy capitalist enterprises are always seeking new ways to decrease their workforces. Venture Capitalists in companies such as Uber would willingly invest in driverless vehicles for example if it meant a healthy profit. And the companies developing AI will certainly deliver the product to anyone willing to invest in their technologies. They will do this without any ethical considerations or conscience.
‘A Changed Labour Party’ as Kier Starmer likes to call it, pursueing electoral credibility but at what cost to policies? Sir Kier Starmer keeps dropping in phrases about the Labour Party’s electoral credibility but what is unclear about his focus on this issue is the cost to the Labour Party’s policies and ambitions.
The last time we saw ‘A changed Labour Party’ was that of Tony Blair: and what a disaster that was
The last time we saw ‘A Changed Labour Party’ was that of Tony Blair’s ‘New Labour’: and what a disaster that was. So is Starmer wanting to take Labour back to the uninspiring and instantly forgettable Tony Blair years? Well on the face of it it would appear to be so. So even though the Tories are gifting the next General Election to Labour, nervous Starmer still seems intent on watering the Labour Party policies down to worthlessness.
Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has outlined his intentions to pick your pockets to accomplish his 5 objectives which include tackling Inflation. Sunak and the Bank of England are intent upon driving us into a recession to deal with Inflation. How ridiculous is this policy? Well it amounts to crashing the bus to make it stop even though the bus has working breaks. It’s like crashing an aeroplane in order to land. This is the ridiculous strategy being pursued by this Tory government and Andrew Bailey the so called governor of the Bank of England.
Surely creating a recession is not the only strategy available to tackle Inflation. This is economics made stupid. Surely a set of qualified economics advisors and experts could devise a better plan. Or is it just that economics has been taught incorrectly for years in schools and universities and this has resulted in a set of so called experts that are unable to apply true creative thought free from the shackles of dogma. Why not look for what has caused this Inflation. Ignore Putin, he is not the root cause: it’s the energy and utilities market that has driven this Cost of Living Crisis. This is what needs to be done to tackle Inflation. Rishi Sunak and these Tories simply don’t get it or they are basically still supportive of the Thatcherite privatisations that have marred Britain since their inception. Britain needs to rid itself once and for all from the legacy of Thatcherism. As I mentioned in my articles dealing with this issue. The biggest obstruction that stops Britain moving forward is the awful legacy of these Thatcherite policies that continue to hold Britain back. We need a government with the courage to actually deal with these real issues. The Tories won’t do it. Blair didn’t do it either and even perhaps Kier Starmer’s Labour vision ( when we actually know what it is ) probably won’t tackle these issues either. In the meantime, as we head towards the next recession, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will be picking your pocket in an attempt to meet the demands of his 5 point plan for Britain. You will be the ones paying for this with interest rate rises and possibly job losses.
Sat here on a Saturday night wondering if I had been travelling in time with Dr Who. All repeats of the Wheel and Blankety Blank. I even knew the outcome of the Wheel because my mindvhad been refreshed by watching Gogglebox earlier in the week which had the very same episode. So what’s going on with Saturday Night entertainment on the BBC? It’s really no fun watching repeats of game shows when you know what’s going to happen. Either give us a new series of the Wheel or something completely new. Watching predictable TV is certainly not on during prime viewing.
Last weeks admissions of failure by the British Water Companies are the perfect demonstration of the failure of Margaret Thatcher’s privatisations. Water pollution in the UK reflects and reveals decades of mismanagement by these water companies and exposes once and for all the failures of Britain’s privatisations brought about by the Thatcher and Major governments.
Now the final cost of these privatisations include polluted rivers and the coastline of the British Isles. Years of lack of investment and mismanagement have surfaced to show us the extent of the problems of privatisation. These companies have been creaming off profits to shareholders and investing in other business interests whilst neglecting their primary purpose. The stench of corruption and malpractice is as bad as the stench left by them in our polluted rivers and our beaches. Companies such as these have the obligation to look after the resources they are managing not to trash them. This obligation should be a prerequisite to the nature of there work. Hence by increasing pollution in our rivers and upon our beaches they have failed to execute their duties properly and should be removed as a liability as quickly as possible. It wouldn’t take long to do this and to prove this in a court of law and the British Government should be pressed to do so as a matter of obligation. However we have a Conservative Government in power that still supports these failed privations dating back to the Thatcher and Major Governments so any action on the matter seems remote.
Yesterday’s announcement that the Bank of England is raising Interest Rates yet again to deal with Inflation and the Cost of Living Crisis just goes to show how clueless and incompetent Andrew Bailey really is. This is the twelfth interest rate rise to deal with this problem.
The previous eleven Interest rate rises had no effect and we continue to see prices of food and household items rising. All this proves is that the strategy of making people worse off simply is not the right way to deal with this situation. It appears that the lack of creativity and dogmatic response from Andrew Bailey and his Bank of England simply isn’t the solution to this current set of circumstances.
Tory policies have caused Britain to run aground. Thatcherite policies and values have now backed Britain into a cul-de-sac. There is no route forward any longer and therefore no reason to cling to the values of Thatcherism. Britain has no income and longer is is also bankrupt of ideas. Now the only course of action available to the Tories is to raise levels of government income from taxation. This was inevitable as a result of privatisation of Britain’s assets. Recent Tory governments have relied upon borrowing as a way of shoring up the facade that everything was under control. Then along came Liz Truss who yore down the mirrors to reveal the true horror show that the Tories had created. Truss even managed to make matters worse. No level of Tinkering about by Jeremy Hunt will make matters better. He is about to reveal a new level of taxation and unleash that on the British Public. Taxes taxes and more taxes. As if the public weren’t already struggling with higher interests rates and mortgage repayments. As if they weren’t already struggling with paying the price Hikes in energy costs and the subsequent inflationary prices. It seems that at every new announcement or misguided policy or budget that the Tories impose on us, that matters actually get worse and worse.
It comes as no surprise that the Tories are viewing tax rises as their only option
It comes as no surprise that the Tories are raising taxation, after all it’s their only option. The Tories have run out of ideas. Thatcherism has run it’s course until it’s run out of steam. Trickle down economics is mis-trusted. Thatcherism was evaporation economics. However Thatcherite values still prevailed in the values of the Conservative Party. Thatcherism is still evident everywhere in Britain even after 40 years. The Railways, Electricity, Gas and Water still remain in private sector. This is due in part to Blair who led the country and the Labour Party up the garden path. Blair remains a traitor to the Labour Party. An experiment in middle of the road politics that spawned a monster. Blair’s Labour Party did nothing to reverse the excesses of Thatcher and Major. By doing nothing it seemed to endorse them. Blair’s legacy was complete failure and is a period best forgotten by the Labour Party.
Britain needs socialism now to turn round our economy and open up new avenues to prosperity
Reverse Thatcher’s privatisations sign these petitions now.
The Tories have no answer to the ‘Cost of Living Crisis’. Now as a last resort they have turned to taxation as their preferred ( and only available) method of attempting to deal with the ‘Cost of Living Crisis’. Taxation and more taxation is their response to dealing with the gap in public finances largely caused by their election of an inept leader which they imposed on the Country and for which we all must now pay for her mistakes. The Tories are now the party of high taxation because they haven’t anything else in their locker. For the last 12 years in Government they have been forced to rely on borrowing to keep taxation down. Now in the time of crisis all their ineptitude is showing. The Tories have no other strategy available to them besides taxation. They have nothing that generates any substantial income for them because they have sold it all off. This is the legacy of Thatcherism. Sell off all your assets and by so doing the only income you will be left with is through taxation. Thatcherism has caused Britain to become bankrupt.
How to tackle the ‘Cost of Living Crisis’. Well the first obstacle is to remove the Tory Government because they are not equipped, ethically or ideologically, to deal effectively with the ‘Cost of Living Crisis’. In fact many of their policies have contributed to this situation. The legacy of Thatcherism is also a contributory factor. The current situation of having our Energy and other utilities in the private sector is a major factor contributing to the high levels of Inflation that we are seeing. These Energy Providers have just got increasingly greedy and any attempts to moderate this by Tory Government Policies has been ineffectual.
Were you aware that Google is suppressing left wing viewpoints like those contained on this site? Did you know that Google is withholding search results by curtailing searches? Did you know that Google has an agenda to manage and filter search results based on nothing other than political message content? Or so it seems. So has Google got political and impartial?
Sir Kier Starmer sent a strong message to the UK Energy Providers with an underlying threat made at the Labour Party Conference yesterday. If Labour gets elected it will set up a new publicly owned Energy Provider that will be in direct competition with the current UK Energy Providers. However it will be run for the benefit of the public and not as a privatised enterprise. This was initially my idea that I provided to the Labour Party on 19th October 2017. See my post http://havemysay.me.uk/competition-is-the-way-forward-for-the-public-ownership-of-gas-and-electricity-in-britain
During 12 years of Tory management they have finally managed to turn Britain into a Third World Country. This is Third World Britain. The Tories have turned Britain into a third world country: an all done on their watch. The Tories have turned Britain into a Country where: people could die of hypothermia in the coming winter months, where people cannot find rental accommodation, where students cannot find affordable rents or suitable digs, where people are unable to find homes to rent and cannot afford to mortgages to buy homes. Britain is a country where people can no longer get a dentist, see a doctor or get timely health care. More and more people are relying on food banks. People have to make choices between feeding their families and keeping pets. People are having to make tough choices about heating their homes or eating food. People are seeing their businesses going down. People are being laid off due to the uncertainty that businesses are becoming unprofitable due to overhead costs spiralling out of control. This is Third World Britain. Welcome to Third World Britain a spectacular Tory Party vision and accomplishment.
What’s wrong with British people? Why are British people so against re-nationalisation of our utilities: our infrastructure? In recent months we have seen how the Energy Providers are exploiting a situation to maximise their profits. We have seen that their actions have led to Inflation and Intertest Rate rises. The time has come to seek to re-nationalise the utilities and in particular the Energy Providers. How long can the British avoid nationalisation of the Energy Companies when it’s starring you in the face as the only solution to deal with Inflation and the ‘ Cost of Living Crisis’. A Tory government will not do this and without it there is not even a single glimmer of hope that a change in the leadership of the Tories will help at all. Liz Truss is a false hope and a mere waste of time. To invest any hope in her to do the right thing will prove to be a costly mistake. Liz Truss can’t be relied upon to do the right thing and nationalise the energy providers in the UK. It’s a blind spot for all Tories and as long as it is then right thing to do will remain undone. So there needs to be a call for the Tories to stand aside so that someone can actually get the job done and do what needs to be done: and that is quite simply to take the energy providers back into public ownership. Re-nationalise the energy providers right now and while we are at it take the railways and the water providers back into public ownership now. And if we can’t re-nationalise these utilities let’s consider squeezing them out of business by introducing a Government sponsored version of the Gad and Electricity providers. If we cannot re-nationalise let’s take public ownership through competition and hence no compensation and a small fraction of the cost of re-nationalising.
It gets more ridiculous: soon the British consumer will be subsidising the French and keeping their energy prices rises limited to only 4%. Yes France is currently re-nationalising their energy company EDF, which operates in the UK. So when consumers in the UK pay EDF their inflated energy prices they will be helping to keep the bills of their French counterparts at a 4% low. So are we British stupid or what?
Britain needs New thinking and New Strategies to deal with Inflation and this ‘Cost of Living Crisis’. Britain needs re-nationalisation of it’s utilities
So wake up Britain. Britain needs new thinking, new ideas and new strategies to deal with Inflation and this ‘Cost of Living Crisis’. Britain needs re-nationalisation of key industries: particularly the Energy Providers. The Tories are dedicated to protecting these profiteering energy companies. The Tories are the obstacle that we in Britain need to remove to tackle inflation and profiteering by these energy providers in the UK. Britain must demand re-nationalisation of the Energy Providers in the UK. To do this Britain must first push aside the Tories who are protecting them. Tory thinking is dogmatic and stale. Socialist Economic theory offers new thinking and new ideas to offer Britain a fresh start and a more prosperous future for everybody.
Reverse the privatisations of Thatcherism and sign my petitions now. Let’s make Britain a much better place.
It is evident that the only solution to deal with Inflation is to re-nationalise the Energy Providers in the UK: the only obstacle to be removed is the Tories. It is now in the national interest to re- nationalise these Energy Providers to deal with Inflation and to prevent the gross profiteering by these utilities which is against the national interests. Quite simply the current situation is intolerable and is the only factor driving inflation higher and higher. The Tories have lost any control and regulation of the utilities and Ofgen is defunct and unfit for purpose. Continue reading Re-nationalise the Energy Providers is the only option to deal with Inflation: the Tories are the only obstacle
The Conservative Party’s policies are finally revealed to be a Dead-end Street for Britain. Their policies and ideas are stagnated and simply not relevant for a Britain struggling to develop and struggling under insurmountable Inflation being driven by the immoral greed and profiteering of the Energy and utilities companies in the UK.
Privatisations have spawned monsters with ideas that they can milk demand to death without impunity or consequences. These monster energy and utilities companies are driven by greed acting outside of the national interests without a conscience or any remorse. There sole purpose being to maximise their profits whilst driving Inflation in the UK higher and higher. No longer restrained by governments they can act outside of concerns like fair pricing for energy and act beyond any national concerns. They even set their own prices and Price Cap (joke) without any government intervention. They are quite simply a law unto themselves. And whose fault is it? Well fault can be traced back over many decades to the ill thought out and possibly illegal sale of the resources to private concerns and profiteers. And who wad to blame for that: well previous and current Conservative governments because they did it and the current Conservative governments continue to endorse it. Privatisation was always going to be a Dead-end Street for Britain and we are now at it upper limits with no where else to go other than backwards to find a brighter future without these shambolic profiteering energy and utilities companies dictating the economic situation and profiteering and causing misery and mayhem thanks to the ill thought out policies of consecutive Tory Governments.

The energy companies and the utilities are laughing at you all the way to the bank. As you struggle to meet your fuel and energy bills these companies continue to drive inflation higher and higher whilst maximising their ever increasing profits and paying huge dividends to their shareholders. It is immoral that they are making huge profits and not simply passing on costs to consumers. Instead they are adding huge profit margins to their prices. In this way they are fixing prices and driving inflation without regards. Their behaviour is immoral and wrong. They are exploiting consumers and laughing at them whilst the Tory government does nothing at all.
To tackle inflation you must reel in the profiteering of the Energy and Utilities who are driving inflation upwards for their own ends
Surely it’s time to expel Russia from the UN. Russia have demonstrated a willingness to breach human rights and are quite prepared to lie to the UN Council. Therefore they are unfit to be in attendance at voting that they can and will veto. It is imperative that the UN acts in support of the non aggressor, in this case the Ukraine 🇺🇦. Russia is clearly unfit to be a part of the United Nations Council therefore it must be expelled. The UN cannot condone a nation that is prepared to tell lies to the Council and is unwilling to address it’s infringements of human rights and what looks like war crimes committed in the Ukraine 🇺🇦. Russia’s presence in the UN is a huge embarrassment which prevents the UN from carrying out it’s intended purpose.
The clampdown on freedom of speech in Russia shows that Putin is not just at war with Ukraine but also with Russian citizens. Putin wants a return to the bad old days of Stalin, ruling with fear and harsh punishments.
Any pretences of an elected democratic leader fell by the wayside this week as Putin revealed to the World and to the citizens of Russia just who he has become: namely a dictator, brutal and ruthless tyrant a new Tsar of Russia willing to defend his privledge and position at any cost, even at an expense to his own citizens. Putin wants to turn Russia back into a military state exerting authoritarian control over it’s own citizens. Much the same as the Tsar. Everything that the Russian Revolution stood for and hoped for is about to reversed and buried as the new Tsar reveals his intentions.
The idea of levelling up is just a slogan to diffuse the power of real Socialist Economic Principles. This is how the Tories are using it to divide tradional voting loyalties in an attempt to grab power away from Labour. There is no substance to their claims that they can level up Britain. The Tories are hinting or trying to convince voters that they are offering some form of socialism which simply isn’t true. Using the ‘levelling up’ slogan and banner is an attempt to steal ground from various political parties with a bona-fide claim to real socialist policies. The Tories are obviously pretty scarred of socialism and socialist policies which have become increasingly important to the British voters. It is a clever ploy with the intention of making you believe that The Tories are something which they definitely are not. The Tories are not socialists nor will they ever be but ‘levelling up ‘ is a ploy to make you believe they can be.
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.
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 is better for Britain. Socialism offers Britain a New start and a shining new path towards prosperity. Socialism is better for Britain because it lowers the burden of taxation on tax payers. So why aren’t we embracing it.
The Republicans in the Senate are blocking an aid to Ukraine bill which is basically actively supporting and assisting Putin. This situation isn’t very American and does not help world order. It’s basically a Carte Blache to Putin and must be music to his ears. Republicans are assisting Putin.
This is a quote from the Guardian Newspaper.
Senate Republicans last week blocked an emergency aid package primarily for Ukraine and Israel after conservatives complained about the exclusion of immigration policy changes they had demanded as part of the package. Zelenskiy, who last winter received a hero’s welcome on Capitol Hill, found less enthusiasm this time
How can this wiring even work. It undermines all that I know and understand about how a 5 Way Switch works. From all that i read on Google from various sources this 5 Way switch appears to have been wired up incorrectly. A 5 way switch is supposed to have 2 sides to the switch albeit that this is an imported 5 way where the configuration runs up all on one side. However in principle it operates exactly the same as the original Fender 5 way switches. It has a Part A which are the the first 4 connectors then a Part B which are the next 4 connectors. Both sides are separate so that Part A ends at connector 4. The first 3 connectors are normally connections for pickups starting with Bridge, the Middle than Neck. The 4th connector is a common to all these inputs and is usually used to either take output from the switch to the Volume pot Input. however it can also be used with a bridging wire to connect up both sides of the switch to open up more options for connectivity.
So what is baffling about this wiring is the output to the Volume Pot goes out from Connector 5 on the switch. this should be the Common to the second B Part of the switch. There is no bridging wire being used to connect 4 to 5 so the switch parts remain separate. Therefore Parts A and parts B of the switch remain separated. There should be no signal here to send to the Volume Pot. however before I undertook the breakup of the guitar it was working. So what was making it work because from what I understand about 5 Way switches this was not possible? Can anyone enlighten me. most of the research that I have done on Google supports my assumptions.
This guitar was originally set up with a HSS configuration.
