The majority won’t challenge the establishment until they themselves get burned

As the false floor economy that has been in place since the start of the Lockdown crumbles, those who have already been left high and dry financially, lost their businesses and in some cases still do not know when they will be able to return to work already know, the Government has got its approach to the Lockdown very wrong.

No. we are not just talking in terms of the so-called social distancing measures and the cancellation of personal freedoms and liberty that the Government are still imposing upon us now. But also in their approach to financial remedies such as furlough money and the Job Retention Scheme that really didn’t go all that far for a great many and simply haven’t touched the pockets of some.

Whether you are the Director of a small Limited Company unable to claim a subsidised wage like many normal employees, or you are just a normal person with your eyes open to the ridiculousness of the steps the Government is taking to restrict and impose the fruits of their own ridiculous fears upon our lives, the reason why there seems to be a difference between your experience and the many people who don’t seem to have ‘got it’ is that they simply haven’t been burned yet.

Regrettably, we live in times where very few of us take the time to think, look and emotionally connect even with people who are immediately around us. Whilst we see images on our screens and hear voices full of fear that effect our lives – sometimes permanently the moment that they are heard – we rarely look upon the difficulties that others are experiencing unless they resemble and more importantly feel like our own.

The increasing rate of redundancies, shop closures and stories like Charlie Mullins sacking any of his staff this week who refuse to return from furlough now that he would have to contribute financially himself tell us that the fallout and the explosion of our economy that the politicians created with the Lockdown is now beginning to pick up speed on its pathway into full public view.

When it has, possibly in just a few weeks’ time, that is the moment when the majority of people will have had their lives touched by the ineptitude of the few. That is the time when the people will really begin to know and accept just how badly this national crisis has been handled and realise just how incompetent the politicians we have elected and trusted with our destiny really are.

When the Johnson Government falls, we don’t want a rehash of the old. We want something very special and very new

It may not be covered in the mainstream media now or at any time immediately soon. But there is a very good chance that Boris Johnson’s time as Prime Minister of the UK will come to an end as a direct result of the way that he and this Conservative Government have handled the Coronavirus Pandemic or Covid-19 whilst effectively consigning British Jobs, British Businesses and the British Economy to the bin.

That time is likely to come within the next 6-12 months. When it does, we do not want the gap to be filled by any of the politicians who are cut from the same cloth as Johnson, or the results as we try to clime out of what might be years of traumatic difficulty will be pretty much the same.

No. A Government of national Unity will not cut it. The majority of the MPs that we have – no matter what Party or Political background – all came into politics for very similar reasons and are motivated by the same things. So we don’t want a Tory PM, a Labour Deputy PM and a Cabinet made up from them all.

For all the tragedy that Coronavirus and the Johnson Government’s response to it has created, there is a massive opportunity for us all now coming into view.

There is a reset coming and with it perhaps a once in many generations opportunity to put many if not all of the injustices that plague our society right in a very short time.

Money and the godlike value attributed to it can be put back into the appropriate box. Care for our planet and its climate can be given the attention and respect that it should. Policies and systems can be created that help those who need help, give everyone the real opportunities without prejudices that each of us should have. Above all, we can be led to appreciate and respect each other and embrace rather than fear the differences that exists between all of us, as a civilised society always should.

This wont happen and all of the opportunities to change and transform society and the way that we work will not be realised by politicians whose only interest will be returning everything to a place that benefits them and their kind as it was before.

It is essential that we have new leadership of this Country that is free of personal agendas of any kind, whether they are material or ideas. We simply need leadership that is committed to and motivated only by transforming and creating a society which values everyone at every level exactly the same, and makes provision for us all to have access to the same opportunities in life, no matter what we have or where we start.

People with the vision to lead in such a selfless way may be few and far between. But in a Country with a population of over 60 Million People, we should be able to find 650 or even fewer who could really be a representative government in more than just name.

Conspiracy theories will help the Government, not the anti-lockdown cause

img_8150Providing you don’t buy into any of the propaganda, social media feeds offer a valuable gauge and indicator of what is generally going on and what the different camps are thinking about everything.

Scanning across the top of the echo chambers and ecosystems that political parties, activists, academics, commentators and the mainstream media inhabit can provide a very useful and interesting insight of how real people feel along with the contrary view of what the establishment wants us all to believe is going on.

Right now, there are a lot of people losing their shit within the anti-lockdown contingent, particularly those who are supporting #KBF or Keep Britain Free. (KBF was the brainchild of businessman Simon Dolan who crowd-funded the legal action against the Government over the Lockdown that was subsequently lost).

With each and every measure that the Johnson Government shoehorns into our lives feeling more restrictive and more out of touch than the last, the frustration of anti-lockdown supporters grows with their disbelief and frustration that neither the government nor mainstream media thinking is falling in line with what they see as being a very logical and right cause.

The problem for any new movement that doesn’t understand or respect the political terrain it faces is stupid politicians are pig headed in the extreme.

Whilst Boris & Co just keep on moving in a direction that is destroying this Country with everything they do, the open discussion and accusations of there being a conspiracy driving policy direction only serves to make the Government look measured and sensible. Meanwhile those lining up against them look increasingly like they should only ever be the subject of a damn good laugh.

Culturally, the majority of people in this country will not blink in their support for the Government until what Johnson & Co have done leaves them burned at a personal level. This is increasingly likely to happen in the coming weeks and months.

The monster that the Lockdown released hasn’t even come into full view yet. It is only when the reality of the chaos that the Government has unleashed hits everyone that the change that increasing numbers of us know has to happen with the way that politics operates in the UK will have the opportunity to work.

Bang your head against a brick wall enough times and you are certain to go dizzy. This is what is happening right now with a great many otherwise sensible people.

The futile effort that they are investing in ideas such as Covid and the Lockdown being part of a deliberate strategy are becoming counterproductive towards the creation and development of the new movement that would genuinely be able to sweep aside the usual suspects and dangerous activist groups when the Johnson Government falls and then step into the void and do something very good.

Nothing the Johnson Government is doing is either fair or right. But this is not the time to have a shouting competition about who is wrong and who is right. This is the moment for everyone awakening to the injustice that is at work to take a deep breathe and step back. Because pleading for what should be happening isn’t the way to change things so that what is happening is at it should be.

As it stands, the talk of conspiracy theories is making Johnson look credible when his actions would otherwise be speaking very clearly to us all

 

New Lords and the over 50s have something in common. They are the people most likely to cause Boris a problem as the wheels fall off

50+An horrific reality of this Government, is they float their poor policy ideas via leaks, briefings and general chatter in the news, aiming to soften up the public and prepare the ground for when one of them has to stand in front of a camera and announce their plans for real.

Sadly used to the cack-handed way that Boris and Co work and attempt to manipulate everyone with their strategies, many of us are immediately aware of what is coming just as soon as the earliest rumours come into view.

So we can be reasonably sure that talk of increased shielding of over 50’s if the ‘local lockdowns’ continue to grow in number as they already are means that putting everyone over 50 – unless they have a Government-sanctioned reason to be out and about – is exactly where Government policy is about to go.

Everyone with their eyes open can see that the Government are making this all up as they go along.

Politicians are tearing up what was once normal in the UK to service the whims of their stupidity whilst they respond to their fears and the threat of loss of control. All the while Boris & Co are blissfully unaware of the damage they have already done and they continue to do.

Whilst we are blessed with younger generations who are confident that they know the ways of the world better than anyone who has gone and experienced life at their age before, it is those in their 50’s who have the knowledge and experience of life and the wherewithal to question and take apart Boris and this political culture. Literally ‘taking them out’ is the stupid politicians way to deal with anyone who can shine a light of truth on their dreadful game and be a threat to them continuing on to keep doing more.

It’s is very telling where Boris sees the real threats to all that he does from his actions. Beyond the fifty somethings who are about to be imprisoned under the guise of the manipulative lie that it is all about making them safe, we are now also seeing the elevation of the key people from the Leave contingent. High profile figures who beyond Nigel Farage possess a real ability to kick and undermine Boris strategy and plans, bringing focus to places where it will really hurt him as the incompetence of his Government is exposed and the truth comes out.

None of what this Government is doing to this Country now is about the safety and future of any of us.

The first lockdown was farcical and what they have done since, including the implementation of social distancing, has only been about shoring up Boris position and ensuring that he will survive the debacle that his Government has created, whilst the Conservatives secure the 2024 vote.

Control and subjugation of those most likely to become the focal point of a new movement that openly challenges Government and becomes an electoral threat is a standard practice for any inadequate politician who does not have confidence in their own policy making to win the day.
