The Government won’t change until WE change the Government

December 9, 2021 Leave a comment

It’s very sad to read the same messages, the same comments and the same rhetoric pumping out across social media following the latest Government measures in response to the newest Covid ‘Omicron’ variant. Few will disagree that they look very much like the first step down the slippery slope to the next Lockdown that we are all dreading.

It’s sad, because the voices are the same. The words come from people with public platforms that give them more influence than even they might recognise. But those same people are continuing to reason that giving a voice to our frustration, anger and incredulity at the Government and Establishment narrative will be enough to instigate change.

Regrettably it will not. Neither will be threatening marches, civil unrest or even seeing these steps through to the point where even the final flakes of democratic paint fall from the façade of a political culture which now has tyranny embedded at its heart.

It was not until the Summer of 2020 that many of these voices began to really emerge. We cannot be sure if it is because they were giving the Government the benefit of the doubt or just believed everything that they were being told up until that point.

Yet the realities underpinning the massive mistakes that the Government were making then established the narrative that led to where we are right now. They have always been there for everyone who looks closely enough to see.

Keir Starmer had already reshuffled his front bench, making the seemingly unelectable Labour Party electable to at least some of the media commentators again. Now, with the lie that covered the ‘them and us’ mentality of this whole political culture fractured and oozing daylight for all to see, there is a real risk that people will elect the only alternative that we have when the next General Election comes. An election that could be only months away where the alternative could be even worse than what we already have and is as such no alternative for us at all.

The point should not be lost on any of us, that when the next General Election is called, the only options that the majority of people will put a cross against on their ballot paper will be for a Conservative, Labour or Liberal Democrat candidate. As such, the people of this Country can only vote for more of the same. Today there is no such thing as a genuine democratic choice for the next government of the UK.

It is increasingly difficult to criticise those who are buying into the suggestion that there is a conspiracy at work behind everything that is happening at any level. With much of what we are now experiencing defying explanation and the absence or void of leadership that communicates both authentically AND genuinely in a very transparent and uncalculated way, people are looking to make sense it. And without those in authority fulfilling the responsibilities that they have in the ways that they should, those same people are going to keep listening to what anyone they believe to be credible has to say whilst growing in number too.

Unfortunately, what the conspiracies and big words don’t allow for are the reasons that everything that is happening as it is. They don’t discuss what has really happened and why. There is no reasoned suggestion of what will happen next in so many respects, and why it will be so.

It all boils down to being about the people who are in charge. The people who run this Country. Why those people are there. How they got there. What is happening that prevents good leaders and public representatives from taking these roles and why they are not there for us to vote for at election time, speaking and connecting with us all in a way that makes sense.

The Politics won’t change until WE change politics. The Politicians won’t change until WE change the Politicians. The Government won’t change until WE change the Government.

No matter what anyone thinks or believes today, the problems we already face and that we will face in the near- and longer-term future will not be solved by someone else appearing from out of nowhere. Just as they won’t be solved by any of the would-be political groups that are busy telling everyone that they are the next best thing. They are at best built around single-issues or are just a load more wannabes who look at the Boris Johnsons of the World and have concluded they would be better at doing exactly the same things.

WE MUST BE THE CHANGE – IF CHANGE IS WHAT WE ACTUALLY WANT.

It will be counterintuitive to many to suggest that the politicians who can provide the solution to the problems we face today are not even elected or sat in our Parliament yet. We must literally create the political party and movement that will get them there. This is the only way.

The talking up of dissent is just that. Its talk. Nothing more. Talk that may lead to protests, arrests, prison sentences and potentially even deaths. But it is talk that will not lead to real change.

This Government, this political class and the establishment around them currently see no threat to themselves, their narrative or what they are doing.

Until they see a threat to everything they take for granted, they will continue to behave and make decisions that work only for themselves in just the same way they are now and have been doing so for far too long.

The real, far-reaching and meaningful change that we need will only be achieved by changing the Government for one that is completely new and untainted by the cesspit of selfishness that British Politics has become.

We must prepare and do everything that it will take to achieve this at a General Election. But as soon as we begin that work together and a credible alternative begins to emerge across the Country, the behaviour of those in control of our lives today will at the very least begin to be moderated.

The political system only tolerates those it doesn’t see as a threat. Those who believe they are on course to being the next big thing would do well to consider this when they think about how and why people vote, and where the real power across the UK lies.

All it takes is to begin a conversation to which everyone who is invested in change is invited. A dialogue that is respectful and inclusive of the thoughts and experiences of us all, wherever in the Country we may be.

We must begin work to create, build and connect each other to A NEW PARTY FOR ALL. That work needs to begin right now.

No, MPs should NOT have second jobs. After all, being an MP is NOT a job anyway

November 17, 2021 Leave a comment

The ongoing row over second jobs for MPs has certainly proven to be an interesting one. Yet it has also become increasingly concerning to follow as it has become ever more obvious that so very few of the journalists, commentators and people working around the political sphere have any real consideration or respect for what the role of an MP and public representative should really be all about.

The comments and arguments for second jobs range from the suggestion that MPs with second jobs enrich links with and understanding of the real world, to additional money being the only way to make the job worthwhile. Whilst those against include suggesting that it would be fine to ban second jobs for MPs, but only if they were given a ‘realistic’ salary’.

Nobody seems to have mentioned that being an MP or public representative is not a job.

Being an MP is a responsibility to others. It’s not one that should be taken if the individual concerned cannot guarantee that their responsibility to others will not be compromised by prioritising income, career opportunities, fears, influences of any kind, or any other motivations that put their own needs before anyone else at any time, at any level or in any way.

It is part of the human condition that we can only be loyal to one master. MPs are no different to anyone else. If an MPs priority is income or career at any level, it will not be focused on anyone else.

There are simply no grey areas with this. It really is very black and white.

If an MP can be swayed in their decision making by any factor which will reflect on them personally at any level and in absolutely any way before anything or anyone else, they can be bought. As such, they cannot be relied upon to represent the general public and the voters within the constituency who elected them.

Being an MP or elected politician of any kind requires people who have the life experience, understanding of others and are at a stage within their own lives where they can willingly and unswervingly put the needs of others before themselves in every meaningful way.

It is because we have for so long had a Parliament full of MPs on all sides of the political divides that are ruled by self interest at some level and in some way, that the British Political system – and as a result the whole of the UK – is in the mess that it is in today.

Public service can be the only master of any politician who wants to fulfil the obligations of the role with which they have publicly been entrusted. There simply is no other way.

For as long as we keep electing politicians in this Country and allow them to frame their own roles as careers and jobs, their attitude will continue to focus their attention on nothing other than what the impact and consequences of their actions will be for their future and for themselves before anything else.

There will be many who suggest that this is the way that the system works and that you can only change the system from within. The regrettable truth is that this is a myth perpetrated only for the benefit and furtherance of the interests of those already within that system. People who have a massive investment in ensuring that nothing happens which could bring about the comprehensive systemic change that would serve to help and benefit us all.

Sadly, until we all come together and accept that the people leading this country in government, the establishment and the wider public sector are not working to put our collective best interests, we are doomed to live the same experience. Public policy is today created in all areas of life where the decisions have been made not with us as the priority, but with what is important to the people we elected being always put first.

We only have ourselves to blame for each and every day that this sordid and perverse idea of democracy continues to rule, impinge and inflict avoidable pain and chaos in our lives.

None of the Political Parties that we have on offer to us today are focused on all of us in the way that they should be.

It is we who must make the decision to elect MPs and politicians of all kinds who will make promises and then keep them. Because they are there in our Parliament because politics is a calling or a vocation for them, rather than just an interpretation of a career or a job. One that to them is nothing more than getting the maximum return for themselves for the least amount of work.

We need a real choice in politics. We need MPs who understand and genuinely care. We need #ANewPartyForAll for the next General Election.

To achieve this, we need to start thinking differently and begin to build the alternative to the madness we have got right now.

If you really want all this to change, please visit www.anewpartyforall.org and think about the power that you have to input and help to bring about change.

If you are convinced this is all a conspiracy, why aren’t you doing anything to stop it. Is being able to say you were right going to help when it all goes wrong?

‘You will have nothing, and you will be happy about it’ is a line that is sending a chill down the spine of many who believe that there is a conspiracy behind all the Government is doing to the UK today.

The source is the infamous Klaus Schwab who founded and leads the World Economic Forum (WEF). He has been given what seems to be a meaningful voice by the elite status that the WEF appears to command, purely because the World’s ‘elites make a regular visit to this rather elaborate members club to get chummy. Understandably, it’s giving some of us the impression that this is the seat of power that rules the entire world.

Whether or not you believe that the WEF is where World power lies; whether of not you believe that Covid is all part of the creation of a New World Order, or whether or not you believe something completely different about all the things that are happening in the UK and across the World today, the one thing we have in common right now, is that unless we are a member of that protected and gilded elite, we are ALL going to be well-and-truly in the shite when everything that can go wrong and is going to go wrong, has finally done so.

Yet today, as we watch more and more problems across the UK unfold, like shortages and rising energy prices that everyone seems to have a different reason to explain, NOBODY is doing anything or taking any of the steps that are necessary for us to take back control of our Country. Absolutely no effort is being made to make the start on what is going to be a long and very challenging process to put everything right.

Instead, everyone with a voice, everyone with passion, everyone who could be contributing to the creation and development of an alternative to what we are experiencing and the politicians who are in charge of it are obsessed either with being right or with their own interpretation of the injustices behind what’s happening. Instead, we should all be focusing on what needs to be done so that at the end of this, it is the majority and not the few are the ones who win.

If we were to agree that this all is a conspiracy and that what we are experiencing is the way that a New World Order begins, the choice that we are collectively making, either to obsess over whose voice is heard, being right or making everyone who disagrees with us wrong, means that through the resulting inaction, we are actually voting for or directly giving our consent to whatever this political class – and anyone they suck up to – has in store.

‘And you will be happy about it’ is actually political doublespeak for just this – because by not voting for change, you voted for this all to continue. You didn’t do anything to create, develop and support the alternative. So, you are saying you are happy with it, and you therefore consented to all of it – simply because you didn’t select the alternative choice.

That alternative choice is real. It’s the alternative choice that we must have in place and on ballot papers for everyone to support at the next General Election.

But to have that choice, its you and I that have to create it and develop it now. Or when the time comes, we really will experience all the things that these elite idealists want to steward into existence using a chain of national and world crisis to do so.

They will then use all of the propaganda options they have to isolate us and the way we think so that we question ourselves (again) and really do believe that the world of bondage they have created is for our benefit rather than theirs and for us all it was a personal or private choice.

The aims of this Government, their friends and this whole rancid political class can only be inevitable if we fail to exercise the right and freedom we have to choose.

But to bring into being the situation and circumstances that will enable us to make that choice, we have to do the work to get there first.

That work begins by changing the way we think and changing the way we are looking at all the things that are going on around us. By changing the way we think about the people we see as disagreeing with us. We have to be open to embracing a very different way of thinking and of looking at the world by our own voluntary choice.

Whilst the media tells us many different stories, none of the journalists or commentators behind or within the stories are joining up any of the dots.

Beyond those stories are many more besides, and what all the different stories have in common is that everything happening now us affecting one or more of us in some way, but we are falling into the trap of believing that the only story that is important is the one that has directly come into our own experience and therefore is affecting our lives.

Yet it’s the same for everyone. And everyone has a different take on Covid, on shortages, on education, on the cost-of-living crisis, on the cost of transport, on food poverty, on house building which means that all the things going on across all of our lives that could be changed for the better with public policy should be a priority for all of us as part of that conscious choice.

We have so much more in common with each other than that which is being used to divide us. But its up to us to be big enough to accept that we have to deal and be prepared to work with all those priorities so that we can get to the nest General Election and not only know that we have a voice, but also be able to choose to support that credible alternative choice.

For me there is no value in making anyone else wrong, especially when to do so is getting trapped by detail, when in reality we have all been aiming for the same result or outcome all along.

We have the opportunity to change our future for the better and to make sure that we have capable and caring politicians in power who are actually capable of leading us through a crisis and all of the problems that are regrettably yet to come.

We have the power to begin that process of change right now, by coming together and recognising that what we have in common is a result, aim or outcome that we will all experience differently in the way it affects our lives, but in terms of the mechanics of getting there and getting the right people into power, the process is very much the same.

Please visit A New Party For All and let’s take the first steps towards the end of injustice for everyone, towards ending the influence of the self-interested few and towards creating the different world that works in the best way that it can for us all.
