A Vote is not a 4- or 5-year endorsement for a Political Party to do as it chooses. It is a gift of trust in a candidate and their party with an expectation that they will always do the right thing

August 2, 2021 Leave a comment

At a time when the issues that we face seem so pressing, and we are feeling so desperate for change and release from all of the blunt ended policies that the Johnson Government is inflicting upon us, the last thing that anyone wants to do is step away and start thinking and working proactively for what comes next. Especially not when it comes to a General Election, which could still be over 3 years away.

We are looking at everything the Government does in the moment, without considering the chain of events that led here, and certainly not with any great thought for the steps, processes and events that will come along in a random order that will look ordered but will be very random in terms their impact and effect.

Regrettably, because the way that our Electoral System works, it means that we elect a government to lead us and take care of our collective needs for a period of four or five years. But that decision is based only on a snapshot of policy promises made to us for perhaps 2 months leading up to a 15-hour opportunity to go and vote on that one day.

Using electoral promises and nothing else to determine which way we vote, is a decision-making process that is almost entirely flawed. Because no matter what any of the mainstream Political Parties promise us, they may not have enough seats in Parliament, once the votes are all counted, to deliver on any of those promises they have made to us anyway.

There is another, far more troubling flaw that we really should be giving more thought to. By voting for specific policies – no matter what they are or how good they might be for us personally, we are being short changed.

Rather than thinking about what we are being offered in terms of leadership, values and the way that our MPs and their party behave and think – In times of a national crisis, like now, we end up with leaders who are not suited to making big decisions or of being reliable enough to continually keep doing the right thing and what’s in the best interests of everyone rather than themselves.

If politics and the British Political System worked as it should, this type of thing really shouldn’t be a problem. Because real leaders and public representatives would be able to adapt to circumstances and would be prepared to do their very best for us in every way.

Unfortunately, the way that the British political System works today means that the three main Political Parties effectively control which person gains entry to Parliament and which person gets elected in each and every Constituency Seat. This means that the Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats determine who sits in Parliament and runs the Country by their rules, not ours.

As the Political Parties are themselves flawed and all about what works best for them, the whims of their current leaders and what will gain and then keep them in power, rather than anything else, there is simply no way for us to get the kind of leaders that we now need in Parliament and running our Country. The next vote is already completely sewn up!

Counterintuitive as it may be, now is the time to be working on the alternative to the problem, so that when the next Parliamentary Constituency vote comes, there will be a credible alternative in place that people will want to vote for.

The importance of creating, developing and building an alternative political movement, constituted and led to work for all, cannot be understated in any way.

There are great problems coming and the Covid Pandemic was just a steppingstone along the way.

When those problems come – like a financial crisis of a kind that may never have previously before been seen, we will need leaders in place who can lead and deliver without a manifesto commitment to guide them, simply because they possess the qualities, life experience, values and love for all others that anyone facing the challenges of doing what’s right for 68 million People in a National crisis will feel normal and not something that can be influenced by the loudest or most threatening voice.

If you are worried about WEF taking control, why passively help them when you could be working to stop them and remove any Government stooges they might have?

We are living through and experiencing highly emotive times. Many of us are looking for explanations and even causes to blame for all the things that we are having to deal with.

In these circumstances it becomes a little more easy than it should to give credibility to the most obvious explanations, when we might help ourselvesand what we may see as our cause, by stepping back and having a look at the explanations that we may have overlooked. It’s worth doing, because conditioning or what we have learned to consider normal has given us a default understanding of certain things, leaving us with no discernible choice.

The way that the Covid Pandemic, or rather the Government handling of it has all rolled out, has been pernicious from the beginning. The effects of the decisions they have taken have been increasingly harder to deal with as it has become clear to many of us that policy is being enacted not through necessity, but because of what appears to be a political choice.

We grow up with what feels like a pre-programmed respect and deference for People in positions of responsibility, whether they are a GP, Dentist, Community Leader, Councillor or an MP. So when it comes to the Government and living through a time of national crisis that we today know as the Covid Pandemic, it is very easy to believe and even feel confident that there is genuine and thought out purpose to everything that those leading the Country do.

As the months have passed, what were coincidental mutterings about a ‘Great Reset’ coming from the World Economic Forum (WEF) at the start, picked up considerable credibility as an explanation for what was happening. Especially when the Johnson Government’s ardent misuse of Behavioural Science to control and manipulate everyone became very clear. And then the goalposts that Boris and his Ministers insisted were set in stone over vaccinations and data monitoring began to more at just about every turn.

I refer to this unhelpful intervention by the proponents of an exclusive club for people who think they are better and know better than anyone as a coincidence, because that really is all it need ever be.

Like most political conjecture wrapped up and sold as a policy proposal or plan, there is nothing so certain as the uncertainty of a successful outcome, and you can be sure that politicians and people with a public platform who know what they are doing will get in the way, if there is a way that they can.

Right now, because of their behaviour and commitment to very questionable ideas like Vaccine Passports and how it could lead to extensive personal data monitoring, it is very easy to believe that Boris and the ambitious zealots surrounding him are and have always been committed to a much bigger idea or ‘thing’. A thing that could easily be a ‘new world order’ along the impractically idealistic lines that the WEF suggest.

For the sake of argument at this point of my blog, let’s say that there really is a grand conspiracy and that the WEF leadership either created and spread Covid or used the opportunity it presents to take over the World. Doing so under the veil of protecting us and therefore making the whole thing resemble the creation of tyranny – all ushered in voluntarily, with our collective consent and therefore by choice – by the back door.

To do this, they would have to rely on us all being completely asleep and doing nothing to stop them. We would literally have to proactively fail to take any opportunity that we have to change the direction of the UK, so that we don’t arrive where they want us to be without even realising we had acquiesced and effectively made the passive choice to be where they wanted us to be.

If all of this is real – as I know many people genuinely believe it to be, it is very important to understand that attacks on those we blame on social media, public demonstrations and belittling anyone that we perceive to be against us is not helping our cause in any way. But it is playing right into their hands.

For better or for worse, we do have the benefit of a political system in place. For as long as that political system is still functioning, we have to let go of the arguments over who or what is right and making others wrong. We must remember that there are rules – or even a game to be played – that has to take place within an ecosystem that has rules that may seem archaic – but are nonetheless there. And that despite the heavy-handed and controlling way that the Government has been and still is behaving towards us, we do have a very meaningful choice.

The choice that we have – and it’s a good one – is to step up and do something constructive and proactive, rather than shouting and screaming in fear of what we think is coming, all because the government has pulled out a metaphorical gun.

No. I understand that talking to others online on social media, sharing our collective pain and then getting on a bus to march the Streets of London make us feel like we are doing something. But as soon as each of these acts of ‘defiance’ is over, we look up, we look back, we see that everything remains exactly the same. It’s just a different day.

This is how it will be again and again – not because we do not mean it. But because we are collectively failing to engage effectively and meaningfully with all the things that we must. That is of course, if we want to head off the looming disaster and ongoing enslavement that we are scared of and can accept that to change what others do, it is first necessary that we ourselves make a change.

Whether Boris the buffoon is just a puppet for a very sinister master, or the very stupid, ambitious and self-serving incompetent as I most respectfully believe him to be, making the choice that I am suggesting here will deal with either the WEF plan or remove this rancid political culture – irrespective of which future we are confident it is most likely to be.

The choice that we must make to take back control of our lives and put government and public services into the hands of people who actually care, is to look at all this in a different way, to think and believe that we are the political alternative to all of this. We must prepare to fight the next General Election together as that political alternative, and we must do everything necessary to build a grassroots-up rather than top-looking-down political movement that works for and embraces everyone, never questioning our ability to turn out when that Election is called and win.

If your car breaks, you take it to a mechanic. It’s vital to apply this practicality to winning a political fight too.

Having numerous well-meaning journalists, celebrities and other public figures heading up different movements that are developing in deceptively big echo chambers online may be resulting in lots of followers and a feeling that something is happening. But the egos, different personal agendas and failure to engage and work with others – ‘because they know better than anyone else’ is a guarantee that whatever they do independently will suffer from a failure to launch. It will mean that WEF and Boris (or others) as the perpetual world kings will remain our only choice.

Together, we must coalesce around a new movement. One that really does turn the concept that is todays British Political System on its head.

We need to build an organisation that generates its hope, purpose, momentum and strategies from the centre of each and every community, not just from an office in Westminster where real people have no influence, no power and therefor no choice.

This can all be done much more easily than you might think. It just takes the commitment that you might already be showing to bring truth and light to all of this darkness the Government is creating. You can use and contribute your energy and channel it into talking up, taking part and supporting this new movement for change in every way you possibly can. A serious and inclusive political movement that is something new, something good and something that has you, the people you care about and the communities you love, right at its heart.

PLEASE look beyond your anger with the Johnson Government. It is justified and it is very real. But it can be put to a much better use. A use that will help us all to deal with the fallout that the Johnson Government and many Governments before this one have caused. But above all, it will give us back the power of choice.

A New Party For All. Are you ready to make that call and start right here?

Best wishes to all.

We cannot afford to elect or re-elect any MP not capable of representing the Public and our Country at the highest level, or of making the right decisions on our behalf – no matter the circumstances

The Covid Pandemic has shown us all how inept, how incapable and how self-serving all of our MPs really are.

We have leaders who cannot lead. We have dissenting voices from within the ranks of the governing Political Party that pick and choose when to dissent, based on what the risk will be to them. We have an Opposition that instead of opposing a Government hellbent on destroying the fabric of society without comprehending what it is doing, instead pushes and promotes even more totalitarian forms of Government policy at every available turn. We have 650 elected representatives who do not have the experience, motivation or wherewithal to understand and empathise with the lives of the people they were elected to represent.

Yet it wasn’t just the Covid Pandemic that made things this way. We only need turn our minds back to the Prime Ministerial tenure of Boris Johnson’s predecessor Theresa May and the Brexit ‘stalemate’ running up to the Summer of 2019. A Parliamentary blockage engineered by a majority of our so-called public representatives who refused to represent the will of the people. All because they concluded that they knew better than the same people who had voted to put them in their roles.

The list goes on. And as the rather strange creatures of habit that we humans really are, we are continuously overlooking, making allowances for and wilfully supporting the otherwise questionable actions and decisions of politicians from the political parties – or rather the tribes that we support, simply because we have a massive blind spot that lets us think our own team is always the one to vote for, and can basically do no wrong.

Brexit and now Covid have changed the dynamics of what had previously been a near 100-year status quo in British Politics. Power had switched back and forth between the Conservatives and Labour, whilst we seem to have just accepted it to be ‘normal’ that these were the only two choices available – with a side order of Lib Dems and their various other incarnations thrown in for good measure too.

In what has become a three-way Parliamentary Political Party monopoly, entrenched tribalism on the part of voters and the freedom it has given to the three Political Parties has left us with a situation where access to the ‘job’ or ‘career’ of being an MP rests solely at the whim of those who select their Parliamentary Candidates. Yet for anyone else, bar some extreme exceptions – getting elected to represent others at Westminster is like knocking at an imposing and tightly locked door.

If those selectors and the party machinery behind them were elevating people to candidate lists and local ballot papers who were good public representatives, rather than being names and faces that looked like they would be good for their party, the existence of only three ‘mainstream’ parties might not be be limiting the prospect of good government to the point where we don’t actually have it as a choice.

As it is, the party machines select and promote people who are unfit to lead, govern, legislate and represent us, simply because those making these highly consequential selections look at themselves in a mirror and tell themselves, ‘These guys are going to fit right in’.

There may have been a point where the processes and influences that have led to this could have been reprogrammed to take the whole parliamentary candidate selection process a very different, more meaningful and more appropriate way.

But the self-serving and ambitious philosophy that is now ingrained and focuses solely on obtaining and maintain power at all costs within these Political Parties mean that MPs have become little more than hollow bodies expected to do no more than turn up and vote. Meanwhile, absolutely nobody outside the Party System and the chumocracy that surrounds it will ever experience anything meaningful being done to help them or make life better for the communities around them – as they rightly should.

I have to break the bad news to you on this: If you believe you have benefitted from a Policy from the Party you vote for in some way, that’s just been very good luck for you. For the MPs concerned, it was always the votes that could be won that underpinned their choice.

Public representation is not a job. It is not a career. If anything, it is a calling or even a vocation.

The role of Member of Parliament should never have become encouraged as an aspirational choice for young people of school or university age. People who have not and see no reason to try and experience life beyond the shielded bubbles they grow up in where limited knowledge and understanding of the wider world could never equip them with a truly representative voice.

With cracks now appearing in the Johnson administration, a Tory regicide and another leadership election is unlikely to give the majority of us a meaningful choice of who becomes our next PM.

But neither will a General Election. That is, if the next one is called before there is a credible alternative to all of the above on each and every ballot paper. A genuine political choice that has connected and engaged people of all political tribes and affiliations and inspired them to back a very different kind of winning horse.

The biggest problem that a new movement or political alternative to all of the above faces, is that there is little time and no party machine to screen those who you can be sure will step forward, thinking that politics looks easy and that if they were in that job, everyone else would hear the message they have in a very different way.

That doesn’t mean that it cannot be done. But for every group that exists and is thinking it is going to step up and takeover – just because they are convinced that everyone will soon wake up and see all of this chaos in exactly the same way, I’m afraid that using what you see as the guidebook for political behaviour and campaigning will only ever be a backward choice.

There is a very different, positive and proactive way that we can do politics in this Country. One that turns this broken political system on its head and works tirelessly from the grassroots up. One that engages everyone because it thinks about life for everyone, is inclusive of everyone without any kind of prejudice, but above all creates policy and makes decisions based not what is best for the representatives, but what is best and will make life better for all those that they represent.

The concern for us all should be that whilst everyone set against the Government are falling over themselves to be heard and to be acknowledged as being ‘right’, nobody is doing the work necessary to start A New Party For All and put together the strategy, THE PEOPLE and the focus on engagement with a very large community that means at the next election, there will be a proper alternative to this ridiculous closed system and that tightly bolted door.

The Tories have an unyielding taste for control that is now moving to the creation of a Government backed Crypto Currency. We must hope that their Covid Legacy doesn’t allow them time to deliver it

We have a lot to be worried about right now. Yes, the immediate issues over Government handling of the Covid Pandemic have taken precedence in the minds of a great many. Whether it’s fear driven support for Government Policy or facing the Government down because you see all that they are doing is wrong, these diametrically opposed views seem to have taken over life.

Either of these views of the Covid Show featuring Boris Johnson and the Parliament that enabled him offers an emotive, but equally myopic picture of what the issues are.

The endless focus on being right and arguing about the justification for the continuation of lockdown and social distancing measures or trying to convince others of the real reasons for the Government doing all of this, are leaving the majority of us completely blind to the very significant issues that are going on. Issues that are likely to be worse for all of us in the not-too-distant future but haven’t as yet come into full view.

This rather bizarre situation where the problems we should all really be worried about are out of sight, so out of mind, isn’t new. In fact, as far as the hidden impact of the Government Covid Policies are concerned, this has been the big part of the unspoken story all along.

Whatever anyone thinks or whatever anyone tells you, the Covid Pandemic wasn’t created and put into use as a clever tool to help usher in a new world regime and all that happens next. Or at least not where Western Governments are concerned. The leaders of these former ‘democracies’ are after all only just 17months into the newfound delights of absolute power – the elixir of life for wannabe world kings who get to the top at a time of national crisis and find themselves in complete and unyielding control.

There is no reason to believe that as the Covid Pandemic kicked off, there was any desire on the part of our hapless politicians to grab power and control over the population and then use it in the ongoing menacing way that events have shown us they have.

But once they had tasted real power and realised that the British Public were prepared to do the right thing and actually celebrate it – going out into the street and clapping every week to salute them, they quickly understood just how easy it can be to use power in whatever ways they wanted to, and promptly decided they should use it to retain that power. The natural progression with such corrupted thinking being that they now see a green light to use it to gain control that they don’t even need, in any one of a number of different ways.

Many people, running pubs, small businesses and small organisations along with the people who work for them, began to feel the negative consequences of what happens when you have people who don’t think about or understand the lives of others in charge of a Country like ours very early on.

Whilst business owners started to have nervous breakdowns or kill themselves and countless other people suddenly found themselves in a living hell, hidden from view as it was all unfolding behind closed doors – the people with the problems caused by the Lockdowns that were easy for the politicians to see, quickly had money by the sack full printed and thrown at them. In the circumstances it was no surprise that they all felt as happy as they could be.

The colossal amount of money that Rishi Sunak and the Johnson Government have created – literally out of thin air – has blown the lid off and given the lie to the way that the whole financial belief system works today. It is only working now because of a shared belief in it between those that lead us and those who control it.

However, the impact and consequences of the pain they have inflicted upon others over decades because of little more than greed, is now catching up with them. Rishi Sunaks wild Covid spending spree is on the verge of pushing the UK over the financial cliff. It is literally not a question of if, but when.

We could get into the detail, but it is probably best summarised as this:

Money is not a thing. Money is not anything. But the financial system that underpins the UK (and World) economies treats it like it is.

The whole financial and monetary system is a con. But the con has depended for nearly 50 years on the majority of the population perceiving money to be real and not the unit of exchange that it actually is.

The Financial Crisis of 2008 raised questions and made people uncomfortable when they could see how Governments fell over themselves to bail out private banks with money nobody knew that they had.

The Covid Pandemic has seen those same Governments print so much money and increase national debts to such extreme levels that the smoke, mirrors and esoteric knowledge we are told only economists and those who run the markets have, is about to have time called on it.

People are waking up to the great swindle that money and everything financial now is.

You can be certain that the Chancellor and those working closely with him will know and understand exactly how close to the edge things really now are for both the UK and the World economy too.

But instead of taking the chance to start doing things the right way – as even now it would be possible for these politicians to do, the Treasury and the Government are looking for ways to solve the crisis that they and their kind have created – primarily to save their own necks. And yes, their tool of choice will once again be control.

The creation of a centralised digital currency run by the Government offers this political culture – drunk on its own power – an opportunity to protect itself and a way to ride out the coming financial crisis by using blockchain technology to quite literally track every atom of money that exists, along with the transactions and those who possess it too. They will be able to delete, freeze and take money from everyone as they see fit and if we still believe that money is real after it has become fully digitised, we will literally have become slaves under their control.

If you need to see evidence of how this is going to work, you only need look to China where the Government backed Crypto Currency ‘The Digital Yuan’ has been developing long enough that they are now banning Bitcoin and making it the only crypto that it is legal to use.

It would be tragically ironic if the obsession that Government and Business has with China (China = Money) made them blind to reality that the Chinese Government might be playing us in a game of cat and mouse, over the longer term, running on a pathway to world domination all along.

The question most pertinent to our fate and whether we can stop what began as an accidental tyranny, is whether the economy crashes before this Government has time to fully implement a British digitalised currency as part of what will then become a Chinese-style social credit system, before the economy crashes and they no longer have that choice.

It feels like I now write and tweet endlessly about the realities of this wider situation that for far too many others seems to be invisible. It’s frustrating to know that it is hiding menacingly in plain sight.

Logic tells us that by speaking up and protesting with numbers, the whole thing will immediately come to an end and those who have been doing us wrong will change direction and put all those wrongs right.

But that’s not how this all works. And certainly not now the politicians running this Country have had that taste of absolute power that has pushed them down the slippery slope of tyranny and megalomania too.

The threat to them and their power has to be real before they will take that threat seriously in any way.

The only way to create that threat is to stop thinking that we can stop them in their tracks today by shouting loudly or by protesting. We must refocus all our energies to build an electoral alternative to this political culture, that will be created with the aim of running credible candidates in every constituency at the next General Election. But with work starting now, so that we are ready to fill the gap if the coming financial crisis hits much sooner than 2024, and the collapse of this totally self-obsessed government opens the door.

I sympathise with anyone who reads what I write and says, ‘we can’t wait for the next General Election’. The truth is that none of us can.

The problem is that the things happening cannot be stopped by anyone who doesn’t see the danger. There are also very inconsiderate people who can and are blocking the way to changing any of this.

This means that the only hope we have for change is to remove them and get them out of the way.

This can only be done peacefully at the next General Election with a political solution that works on behalf of everyone.

The alternative to doing this peacefully is revolution. But revolution doesn’t guarantee who will be in power once these power obsessed miscreants have gone.

There is only one way of approaching this that in the long term ends up with things being better for us all.

Shouting & losing your S*** about what the Government does won’t stop them doing it. It’s time to put up or shut up – or Boris & Co keep control and the next General Election is already won

If nothing before now had convinced you that the Johnson Government will do whatever it wants to stay in control, the U-turn on vaccine passports and the threat of 14 years imprisonment for Journalists who embarrass them should now tell you all you need to know.

The decisions the Johnson Government has been taking stopped being about Covid a long time ago – if they really ever were. Their decisions are now all about control.

Control and maintaining it has been and is the only way that those responsible for the injustices being committed against us can be sure that their roles will not be uncovered and that they will not be held to account.

Boris, his Ministers and Advisors have grown more certain by the day that by maintaining the narrative they will ultimately keep public opinion behind them. They are continually working to ensure that all-important legacy Boris so desires, and to secure victory in the next General Election – in their minds years before it is even called.

This is a completely self-serving Government, supported and enabled to do all that it is doing by a Parliament full of MPs who all think the same way. These politicians have no doubt that with a subservient media and the whole political class ready to support them or even outdo them over Covid – any negative blowback from the public will not be meaningful and will certainly not last.

Unfortunately, for those amongst the growing numbers of sceptics lining up against this tyranny, there is a very big problem that is far too easy to overlook: Very little of the anti-Government sentiment, the words, the interpretations, the facts – resonates with anyone looking objectively or from a distance at what’s going on.

Sadly, the way that messages and information are being presented are actually damaging the argument and the chances of removing this whole political culture, right at the time when we should be focusing all of our energies positively against all of this madness. When words used publicly by the Government mean so little, the voting public will not be swayed by what looks far too much like many hundreds of tit-for-tat responses.

The anti-lockdown, anti-government sceptics and all these aligned in principle against the Johnson Government may be quite literally on the cusp of missing the chance to change this.

This is a travesty. The reasoning behind much that those messages and the experiences that people have had to go through to get there would have massive value if they were to be channelled in a helpful and engaging way. Regrettably however, frustration, anger and the desperation to make sense of everything is not being tempered and is boiling over. People with voices, platforms and passions are speaking out from their own perspectives instead of joining up and becoming a winning, measured and reassuring voice – something that is only possible when we all come together and work as one.

To be assured of impact from using logic and reason via any communication medium, you must be sure that your intended audience will listen and hear what you are saying to them. We have reached a point where the MPs in our Parliament and the Political Parties that back them do not hear our messages because they do not care. They do not even want to understand our lives. They are in politics for just one thing: themselves.

WE MUST DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY TO WIN!

I understand that many of you reading this will not want to hear, accept or work with what I have to say. But that is because I am sharing how things really are in politics, rather than how they are seen, or more importantly – how we would probably all agree they should actually be.

Boris’ 80-seat majority means that we are stuck with him or somebody who will be just like him until the next General Election – at least. Yes, there is a chance that the Conservative Party will ditch Boris as Prime Minister, but that will only because the rest of the Conservative Party will want to save their seats and save their own skins. They will replace him with someone potentially even worse, because Boris really was the best of the options for Prime Minister that any of us had.

Some believe that Labour or the Liberal Democrats will get elected and into power at the next General Election. But the reality is that neither of these political parties are offering you anything different. They are motivated in just the same ways as the Conservatives, and if given power will cause as much pain to us all, if not more. The only difference between them, each other and the Tories is that their brand of self-righteousness and self-serving government will be presented to us in a different ways.

There are no MPs in Parliament or sat on the green benches today have the promise of becoming the selfless big beasts of politics that we now need. Leaders who are driven by the promise of something better for all of the people that they collectively represent.

There are no servants of the people in the British political system today. Only those who want to manipulate and control the system so that they can force all others to serve them.

We can change this. But we have to begin work to change this now.

The results will not come overnight. It takes time and a lot of ingredients to put together a meal worth eating. This is why all the shouting and losing of shit will not cook up the end result that most people want and expect to happen right now.

I am reaching out to all of you who want to see the end of this rancid culture of politics – even those of you already aligned to groups like Reclaim and Reform UK who do recognise at least some of the wider problems, but are still focusing on very specific agendas.

Sadly, the ‘options’ currently available to us do not engage anywhere near enough voters to win. They are set to reach the other side of the next General Election in exactly the same place as UKIP and the Brexit Party did before them.

We must come together to create a new political movement. A New Party For All, that is completely fresh and has a totally different approach to politics and the people – right from the start.

The British Political system is sick. But its sick because of the people that are in it and bending it to their will for their own benefit and for the benefit of their friends.

We must get back to being human, caring about and connecting properly with all others, before anything meaningful can really begin.

Everyone has something to bring to this party. But egos are the one thing that to make us different to the politicians we already have, we all must leave behind.

It will not take many of us to get A New Party For All going. But the few who come together and become the catalyst to make it happen must be prepared to take an approach that right from the start will feel counterintuitive and not like it will be targeting the issues directly as everyone currently sees them.

Believe me, if there are enough of us ready to listen, consider and then contribute in the way it really now is possible to do this, the change that is possible will be highly visible to everyone within months.

Positive change will begin from that point thereafter. Then, when the next General Election comes or when the Johnson Government falls, we will be ready to step into the gap and stop other selfish interests from taking over and continuing to treat all of the people in this Country like they are complete and utter fools.

It really is time to put up or shut up. Taking real action and taking everyone else with us is the only way that we can now win.

Q: Why are the Tories so far ahead in the Polls? A: Because there is no political alternative to what we have already got (SPOILER – THEY ARE ALL THE SAME!)

Yes, scoff or blow a raspberry if you like. Think to yourself ‘There is Labour’, ‘There are the Liberal Democrats’, ‘What about Reform UK – or whatever that Laurence Fox guy was doing?’ – And yes, I can assure you that there will be plenty more too.

But ask yourself this: What are any of these political parties and the people who speak on behalf of them doing differently to what we see in the behaviour of the politicians that we have in Government running the Country today? What can you remember seeing from them at any time before?

If your response to this focuses only on Covid. Lockdowns, Social Distancing or something involving the past 17 months, I have to suggest that you are probably not thinking all of this through. Certainly not to the point where you can begin to start using your anger, frustration and the energy to do something positive that might lead to change and make all the problems that Boris & Co are creating go away.

It doesn’t matter what political party you support right now or what political parties you might have supported in the past. There is a common theme running like a fat vein through them all. At their worst lies unbridled ambition and blind self-interest, and at best is a lack of self-awareness and understanding of the issues facing just about everyone else – which for politicians should be the only common cause.

For many who are waking up to the evolving crisis of democracy and tyrannical leadership that we have now found ourselves facing, there were no recognisable problems with British Politics before the pandemic began. But others have been watching this unfold for years, if not decades. A slow, malignant rot set in to our political system leaving political parties run purely for themselves and for their own benefit, recruiting multiple generations of politicians who do nothing that doesn’t prioritise their party, their own friends and themselves above all else.

Because this process has been underway for so long, we now have MPs, Councillors and Politicians of all kinds right from the bottom to the top of the tiers of government, who say yes to everything they are directed to by their parties, just to get known publicly, gain power and ultimately get to the top.

They are not leaders. All of our recent Prime Ministers have reached the top job in the same way. They have only been unscathed before now, because it was not until the unscripted result of the Brexit Referendum landed in 2016, that events stopped unfolding for them in a very helpful and otherwise publicly misleading way.

To be fair to David Cameron, it looks like once the result was in, he knew immediately that he was out of his depth and simply didn’t have the tools to maintain the charade any longer. Theresa May thought it looked as easy to run the Country from No10 as all other MPs do, but quickly fell fowl of the complexities of dealing with the nebulous and maleficent EU and its previous forms as all PMs after Churchill have done so too – the difference being that she did so after being instructed to leave, rather than having an unhealthy desire and the ability to do whatever possible to get us further in. Boris ‘gift’ – if we can call it that, is that he simply doesn’t give a shit about anyone else or what anyone thinks, so when it came to winning the 2019 General Election, he was more than happy to do whatever the people around him told him to do to win. The wheels fell off for this particular brand of allowing a Country to run itself when the Covid Pandemic came romping in.

When being in politics and gaining power at any cost is your only motivation from a ‘career’ perspective, or like Boris – a plan from a very early age, you simply do not have the right motivation to represent others. You will not willingly expose yourself to the channels, journeys and pathways of experience that those who get into politics with the sole motive of representing others will have genuinely obtained.

For those we elect to serve us, such experience is the basis of understanding how real life works and what the experience of life means to others, how life is lived and how decisions in government will always have consequences for everyone else. It is the lifeblood of effective representative government, and when the representatives we elect don’t have that life experience, then the consequences of that inadequacy are very serious for us all.

Covid tipped a runaway train off the tracks. All of the downsides of having the wrong people running the Country have now come into a very explosive public view.

But people – and by people I mean the majority of us who vote – are not the simpletons and village idiots that those now obsessed with keeping their power at any cost would like to believe.

Yes, there are many who do not, or cannot elucidate their feelings or challenge the people who lead us. But that does not mean they do not think for themselves or that they do not possess that all-important gut-feeling and the instinct that none of us trust nearly enough. Right now, it is telling a great many of us that everything we are now seeing and experiencing from Government in this Country is completely wrong.

No matter what MPs, Ministers, the Opposition Leader and all the others with a mainstream platform to talk about politics say, people know that there is no longer a genuine difference between any of the politicians we have. So, whatever way you vote, the results and what happens next will ultimately go the same way.

Yes, there are by-election blips. But don’t discount the ability of your fellow countrymen to get up, go out and visit the ballot box and use that very small moment of power they still have to give contemptuous politicians and those who aspire to control us a short, sharp message bloody nose, underlining how we feel about what they do.

There would be no alternative on the ballot papers to what we have already got running the Country if we were to have a general election today.

Whilst I may appear to have overlooked the Reclaims and the Reforms whose leaders will quickly tell you that they will be there whenever an Election is called, the reality is that these are political vehicles which are failing to connect with anywhere near enough people in the meaningful way that an alternative will need to, if it is to win and gain power and then stop and address the problems that decades of the wrong people being in power in this Country have caused.

Talking about and considering Elections right now is a lot more important than many people would like to think.

With the 80-seat majority that the Conservative Party has got right now, we are pretty much stuck with them doing whatever they want to. Without beating them at the next General Election, there is unlikely to be any other way to remove and replace them in a way that will work out well for us all.

We must create, build and develop an alternative political movement that reaches across and addresses all of the issues now, so that it is ready, connected and has meaning for everyone whenever the next General Election is called.

We have to work together to do this. We must be the alternative. We have to step up to the next level and work strategically to overcome the problems that Johnson and the inaction of all MPs has created.

There simply is no other way.

Yes, Boris’ ‘Pilot’ exemption from having to do what everyone else does may have been stopped. But it marks a sinister public upgrading of the contempt this Government has for us all

From before it all began, I did not agree that Lockdowns were necessary and certainly did not believe that the measures the Chancellor took to support people financially thereafter were either the right ones or that they would actually help everyone as anything done properly should have.

Many ‘lockdown sceptics’ have since concluded that there is something far more conspiratorial about the whole Johnson Government approach. But we have just been witnessing the behaviour typical of weak people corrupted by the power of high office. And everything we have experienced to date since Covid arrived is the blunt end of stupidity at its worst.

On balance of probabilities, Boris Johnson, Rishi Sunak and all of the politicians and the advisors in cahoots with them didn’t begin imposing ‘emergency legislation’ on us, thinking that they would get away with even a fraction of the things that they now believe they have.

But as the British people have repeatedly done the right thing and adhered to the outlandish measures they have imposed, the confidence of those who were never fit to lead the Country in the first place has grown. So much so that they have edged nearer and nearer to the point where the absolute power they awarded themselves has corrupted them absolutely.

Today, they finally reached the point where they felt they could pull these stunts publicly – and get away with it – because they and only they know what’s best for everyone and they and only they have what it takes to get things done.

The contempt for the British People that it took to announce that they were going to deliberately flout the very same rules they have imposed upon everyone else – with considerable cost to us all – is breath-taking in the extreme.

Yes, the reaction from the media calling them out precipitated a U-turn very quickly. But to see our ‘leaders’ reach a point where they are prepared to be so publicly obvious about their own abuse of the Covid rules now gives the lie to the legitimacy of the claims they have made about Covid and the robustness of the science they have used to justify imposing such damaging totalitarian measures upon us.

It was clear for some to see what the Johnson Government were doing right from the start. But we can all now see just how badly we are being governed by politicians who are unfit for the Offices they hold. We can see how far we are from governance that is morally right whilst those driving these dubious rules and using manipulation to scare us sail increasingly close to the winds of being legally wrong – if that’s not what they have really been doing all along.

The problem. The big problem that we all have to face is there is no way that we can remove and replace this Government anytime soon.

Yes, with the ability that Boris has to set the agenda and control the narrative, there is a chance his confidence will push him to call the next General Election long before 2024.

But we then have another massive problem to deal with: There is no political alternative to the politicians that we have already got – with all of our MPs – whether Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat or any other sitting or currently aspiring to be in Parliament being motivated by anything other than their own agendas – exactly the same.

It might not matter so much if the Covid pandemic were already over. But it isn’t.

Furthermore, the Johnson Government mishandling of just about everything – not least of all the impact of what has been systemic mental abuse of millions of now fearful and vulnerable people for no other purpose than social control – has created problems for us all. Many growing problems that are not even yet apparent to many yet are set to inflict a painful legacy upon all of us – perhaps for many years to come.

We are in a mess. A serious mess. And it will get much worse. For a start, the impact of the profligate spending and money printing that Rishi Sunak has burdened us with when it was not necessary is likely to feed into what is likely to be a worldwide financial depression. A crisis that will touch everything relating to money that will probably be set off by the collapse of the US Dollar – after the Biden government also embarked on a series of financial decisions that have echoed the absolute ridiculousness of our own.

Do we really want politicians like Boris Johnson or Rishi Sunak ‘leading’ us or even touching the levers of power in this Country if the problems we are facing because of them develop as they probably will?

Regrettably, we must accept that shouting, jumping up and down, or using every media channel to scream loudly how justified our arguments or how wrong what the Johnson Government is doing will not force them to listen and it will not create change. These are small-minded people with myopic outlooks, committed only to their own cause.

Boris and his chumocracy do not see any threat to their position. Labour are struggling under Kier Starmer, and a by-election victory in a historically blue constituency for the Liberal Democrats doesn’t tell a Party like todays Conservatives that the yellow peril is back.

Outside of Parliament there is lots of talk and the elevation of public profiles for people like Laurence Fox and Richard Tice who hold laudable but repellently focused goals that do not connect with the majority of people. Isolated political thinking – no matter the sense it makes will ever engage the Country in a way that will win a General Election.

Boris and his advisors look at all of this and believe they are untouchable. They really to believe that for the foreseeable future, the British political landscape is theirs.

However, the establishment of a new political Party for All or movement that is inclusive, addresses all the issues – and not just those that are Covid related, reaches right across our different communities and treats voters as adults and with the respect and empathy that they all should receive, will quickly be seen by those in Westminster in a very different way.

If people can come together, put the specific ideas and approaches that they cherish to one side, engage in open dialogue and then work together to formulate an agenda and manifesto that genuinely works for and on behalf of all, the next General Election will be there to be won, simply because the British People will be presented at the ballot box with a real and credible choice.

In the meantime, if things do change and take a turn for the worse, we will already have a movement of people brought together and motivated by the right reasons, ready to step in and lead if the Government collapses and there is a need for something that will be good for us all to fill the void.

The Government will now lock us down for any reason that it can. Resistance doesn’t matter when they have an 80-seat majority, so beating them at the next General Election is the only way we can

Yes, Yes YES, I hear all of you who are shouting out loudly that the Government is wrong to be doing all that it is doing. But they are in power. They have an 80-Seat Majority. And they’re going to do whatever they want now – simply because they can.

No. It’s not right. And whilst they may be doing all that they are legally, it certainly doesn’t mean that any of it is morally right.

Watching headlines is an interesting sport. In terms of predictions, the mainstream news channels and papers have become more reliable than any clairvoyant could ever be in predicting what is going to happen at some point very soon.

Even this is deliberate. It is a way to soften us up against disappointment by putting an idea that the government already knows is a firmed-up plan into the mainstream, just so we are used to the idea, and it comes as no shock when it actually lands.

The latest addition to what seems to be an infinite list of preemptive announcements is the warning that the government is now expecting 60000 Flu deaths this coming winter – ironically because the population has been locked down for so long.

Regrettably, all this notice shouts out loudly that there are more Lockdowns heading our way in the Autumn. And they are coming whether they are imposed on us with Covid as the excuse or using some other innocuous illness where the propaganda is much more deadly than the disease itself will ever be, and things we used to accept as part of lives everyday risks are suddenly elevated to cult ‘death-is-now-imminent’ status – just like Covid-19 has been.

The Government is possessively guarding its control over us by stretching the Covid narrative as far as it possibly can. If they back down or change direction, the act of doing so will shine alight on all the holes and their stupidity will be exposed.

There is no willingness on the part of the Johnson Government to face up to the truth that getting the country heading in the direction of normality means upsetting the very vocal few who are going to blame him for everything that hurts them, whilst they remain blind to the massive hurt being inflicted by all this on everybody else. The media will help them to do it too.

Meanwhile the majority who have equally distressing life stories that don’t push people’s buttons and therefor don’t sell news, will be allowed to swing. All this so Boris can continue to do all he believes it will take to guarantee that winning the next General Election for his beloved Conservative Party is assured.

To this political culture – who believe they are modelling their decision making on decisions made by political titans they never met or knew, who led at a very different time and in very different circumstances they really do believe that this is how Leadership during this crisis and time is done.

We cannot continue to live like this. However, living with it is exactly what we are going to have to do. That is until the cycle of Elections or events that the Government cannot control comes around and allows for the politicians we have in power today and the self-interested specialists around them to be removed.

The problem with waiting for events and elections to catch up is that we have to be patient and not sit still. We have got to do our part to make sure that this is not a battle, but a war that we can win.

You cannot win the lottery without making the effort to buy a ticket. Our lottery win will be the successful removal of this rancid political culture and all the politicians and political parties that enable it.

We can only realistically achieve this at the next General Election. It is unlikely that anything like favourable circumstances for democratic change will come into being before.

So, it can only be done at the next General Election and the effort we must make to buy that ticket is to set up a new Political Party for all.

We need to do this right here and right now. It must reach out, address all the issues that are affecting life and not just Covid – and provide the alternative on the ballot paper we need when Election time comes around again and ensures that we get that win.

It will not matter how much we complain. How justified, right or overwhelmingly accurate our arguments will continue to be. These are politicians who prize their power and control over us above everything. And with that 80-Seat Majority in Parliament, this is not something they intend to give up or give back to the us anytime soon.

Let us use our energy and motivation wisely from now on. If we get a New Party for all started, launched and talking to all of the disconnected in the ways that only it can, you will begin to see the results and the impact of an alternative arriving on the political landscape straight away.

If events that the Government cannot control take over – as many expect they will, and that makes a General Election inevitable much sooner, with a New Party for All up and running, we will then be ready to face what comes next and not miss the opportunity to create change for everyone that works for all, for our mutual Benefit and is in every sense what we need and is above all right for ALL.

SPOILER: This Government and its policies will not be stopped democratically before the next General Election. WARNING: Work on a credible alternative must begin now or the UK will elect the same thing again

To Lockdown Sceptics, dissenters and everyone with misgivings about what this Government and the establishment is doing and has done:

It doesn’t matter how right you feel or how right you might be. The Government is not listening to you and will not listen to you.

To do so would be to allow a light to shine upon the misjudgement and ineptitude of an entire political class. To respond and act differently would be to openly admit to the World that they are neither fit for the office they have and are incapable of fulfilling the roles in which they serve.

You may have watched the film The Big Short and seen the portrayal of Mark Baum in the run up to the Global Financial Crisis. Baum couldn’t understand why nobody was listening or acting to prevent what he and his colleagues could see happening. They saw business carry on as usual as increasing numbers of people lost homes and the finance system was about to go over the edge. They faced the massively unsettling reality that everyone who could do something had their heads buried in the sand. People with the power to act either kept the narrative going to help cover up their own actions or to keep receiving the benefits from the position of power or influence they had.

The similarities between what happened leading up to the 2007/08 Global Financial Crisis in the United States and what is happening now in the UK as a result of the way this Government has handled COVID and built its response around Lockdowns is startling indeed.

Similar because there is an establishment narrative at work in the UK today that was set in motion the very moment that Boris Johnson closed down the Country telling us that it was to ‘protect the NHS’.

That narrative has continued ever since. It has led to bad decision after bad decision as the fallout and consequences of each bad decision has in turn had to be explained or countered in some way.

One lie leads to a thousand more. For the Government to admit the truth by dealing with events any differently to how they have been doing so or by changing direction to where things should really be, would be the same as admitting that Lockdowns, the use of behavioural manipulation, social distancing, the money they have spent and many other things they have done were wrong.

You can be reasonably certain that most MPs by now understand that the decisions they have made or have facilitated through their own inaction have bolted the accelerator of the train to the floor, whilst the Government’s inordinate spending has broken the brake lever clean off. The only question remaining is whether the wheels will still be attached as the UK flies off the end of the line and goes over the cliff with all of us still aboard.

Like some demented Mr Micawber having a moment, the Government and the members of the political class that underpins it are falling over themselves to keep this destructive narrative going in the forlorn hope that ‘something will turn up’. They are literally betting the house that events will somehow play out to the end in their favour, allowing them to leave a legacy in the history books telling future generations that they were always in control.

To say that what they are doing and what they have done is the height of irresponsibility wouldn’t even begin to cover it. But this Government and this insidious culture of politicians that are just like them will continue to ride roughshod over our future, right up to the moment that we give an alternative government and form of leadership the majority of our votes.

Yes, there really is nothing you can do to change what is happening right now. That’s not the way that the British Political System works.

Yes, you could create and engage in mass civil unrest. But its success would destroy the existing system, when it’s not the system itself that is the problem. The problem within the system is the quality and motivation of the politicians that we choose.

Yes, the destruction of the system may sound very appealing if you recognise the damage this Government has already caused. But the risk to us all is what could emerge from the inevitable mess and chaos that comes from bringing down Government in this way. The resulting form of Government is even less likely to be one that would work in our best interests. It is very unlikely to be one we have the opportunity to choose.

The power we have to change things is in this moment. The power to change everything that government does has to begin with us changing the things that we have control over today.

We may have only two years or 24 months to wait to the next General Election which could come in May 2023. If the wheels of the train fall off sooner, the wait could be even less. We must be ready if it does.

When the next General Election comes, we need a political alternative on the ballot paper in each and every Constituency that is not only credible but understood and supported by the majority of voters who will be looking for change that they can trust on that day.

That alternative will not come by waiting for someone else to do the work for you or by thinking it is enough just to get onto social media, pick up likes and followers and keep telling everyone how it is.

We all need to begin thinking, acting and behaving like we are already the next Government in waiting. We should be taking every opportunity to share our experiences with others, to exchange ideas and above all, listen to the stories and life experiences that others from all backgrounds are ready and willing to share.

The things that we have in common with each other far outweigh the small number of differences that appear to separate us.

By building a network and conversation that engages the public without the need to always be in the public eye, we can quickly become and be the alternative that the UK, our communities and the people that we care about need.

Bad government is not our destiny. It is our choice.

Change begins with a conversation. Have you thought about what you can do to create A New Party for All?
