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? 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?
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.
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.
Is Wagner boss Yevgeny Prigohzin an idiot? Well it seems so. Anyone who puts their faith in the word of Putin must be an idiot. Instead it seems that this man has signed his own death warrant. If he thinks he will be safe in Belarussia he must be an idiot. His army is being disbanded and this leaves him vulnerable. He has embarrassed Putin and everyone sane knows what that means. A dose of poison is sure coming his way. He surely would have done much better to carry on with his plan to bring Putin down. Now he will be left looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life. No other countries outside of Russia would offer this notorious war criminal any sanctuary. Now all he can do is wait for his fate.
Was Prigohzin an Idiot?
Prigozhin has now been confirmed dead. Prigozhin was a fool. Prigozhin was a chump. Prigohzin was an idiot. Prigozhin set in motion a course of events that ultimately led to his death because he lacked the nerve to see them through to the bitter end. By challenging the authority of the Kremlin and then backing down or being talked out of it he had ultimately put a death sentence on his head.
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.
