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.
Finally we learn what most of us still sane already knew, that Boris Johnson did lie to Parliament about Partygate. Finally it comes to pass that Boris ‘the clown’ finally trips up and lands in a pile of shite of his own making. Now left defending the indefensible Boris is intent upon devaluing the findings of the report and the whole process that reached the truth. Thing is Boris Johnson just cannot accept the truth and wouldn’t recognise it if he stumbled over it in his oversized Clown shoes. Truth is that Johnson never had the integrity to be a Prime Minister in the first place. I can almost see Theresa May smiling from here. Johnson stabbed her in the back to further his own political ambitions. Hope Johnson disappears now and takes off his hard hat and high viz vest and simply fades away. Let’s get back to grown up politics instead of this circus.
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.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) could determine our roles in the future and determine human societies. AI has the potential to undermine societies and destabilise human relationships. At present we have the ability to decide which way we wish to go with A.I but we should understand the consequences of using A.I. before we go any further with it’s implementation.
Just because we can do something doesn’t necessarily mean that we should do it
Artificial Intelligence (A.I) is a case in point here and just because we can do it doesn’t necessarily mean that we should do it. To progress an implement A.I means taking away a humans ability to do the same thing and give it to a machine of a chunk of code (or both). To progress like this and measure it in only profit and efficiency terms could be irresponsible. To consider the implementation of A.I. there has to be more consideration given other than just implementation for profit and efficiency gains. We have to learn to consider this topics of ethics, social responsibility, macro economics, social factors and even matters of world order. At present the world and various big players ( companies) are pressing ahead with A.I regardless. There seems to be a free laissez-faire attitude among Government’s to just let A.I happen. Nobody seems to be envisaging the future and what our increasing obsession with A.I. could potentially lead to.
Talks without allegiance and without commitment for towards armourments are likely to be a huge disappointment for Putin. China remains uncommitted towards Putin’s crusade. A show of strength yes but a commitment it is not. China will benefit from trading arrangements with Russia to replace some of what it has lost through the sanctions imposed upon Putin by the West but the deals made are not mutually beneficial. Putin is running out of options so any deals are better than no deals but it is also a sign of Russia and Putin diminished world currency. China remains aloof and certainly doesn’t wish to get drawn into a possible set of sanctions itself. China has to face it is reliant on exports to the West. To face large sanctions and boycotts on Chinese made goods would put his own regime at risk. People in China are being kept sweet and dormant by financial success. To risk upsetting that would most likely be a huge destabilising factor putting his regime at risk. The People’s Republic of China could be a very real possibility if this tyrannical regime were to upset those that they rule over. That Western trade are actually shoring up this regime is a political irony in itself. Take away this scaffolding and the Chinese are likely to implode.
Kier Starmer’s Labour Party needcto be aware that the job is not done yet and there is still a long way to go. Yes the Tories have certainly given them a good head start but success is not assured. Here are the things that the Labour Party must get in order to be assured of winning the next General Election. They should not rely on the Tories to do it all for them.
Liz Truss looks set to continue to protect and endorse the greedy Energy providers: further endorsing their huge profits.
Nobody wishes to see a reprisal of the Miner’s Strike and the troubled times of the Police State back in the 1980’s. However this view is obviously not shared by either Rishi Sunak nor Liz Truss who both said that they would ban and outlaw Strike Action if elected to the office of Britain’s next Prime Minister.
Sunak and Truss yearn to be the next prime minister and to impose a Police State similar to 1980’s Britain and the era of the ‘Miner’s Strike’
Whether or not this was an off the cuff remark or whether it is actually a policy that they wishing and willing to pursue was not explored in this week’s televised TV debate debate from which they came. It does suggest that this government, even though not elected on such a mandate, is likely to be an authoritarian government irrespective of who wins the leadership battle to become Britain’s next Prime Minister, and is likely to be recruiting the police force into limiting free speech and strike action. Should we be worried and concerned? Well you’re damn right that we should be! This government was not elected on such a mandate to limit the freedoms of speech and actions that we currently enjoy and or employ to ensure that we can get a fair deal and are not left open to exploitation.
3 Conservative governments and all have failed to deliver a stable Prime Minister who completed the full term. Cameron, May and Johnson.
