The legitimacy of strikes is born of a highly subjective truth. Greed has created every problem we have, but union barons are now falling over themselves to make workers just as bad

Over recent weeks, Secretary General of the RMT Mick Lynch has solicited a paradoxical feeling of respect towards a union baron, simply because in interviews he has appeared to take the Government position on wage rises clinically apart.

Whilst many commentators and journalists have been fawning over the eloquence of his speaking skills, the reality that few accept is that Mr Lynch’s greatest asset is his comparative ability to speak truth to power. Especially when the powers we have today do little more than obfuscate with invented truths, diversions and lies.

Like any good sales pitch, the union patter on the need to strike in order to force ‘reasonable’ wage rises has indeed contained some certain truths. Truths that many of us can relate to, as we watch prices rising exponentially almost by the day.

However, just as the politicians we have running the Country, who fail to consider the law of consequence and the bigger picture – rather than just responding to headlines or whatever is on the table today, fail to look beyond themselves, this union push to secure explosive wage rises can only fuel the speed of the race towards a complete financial and systemic collapse. Indeed, it is likely to cause the very people it is supposed to be helping the most pain.

Yes, the simple and most obvious answer to the cost of living crisis would be to give everyone a pay rise that matches the rate of inflation. A wild rate that is currently heading for ten and may even go as far as twenty percent.

Yet just as would-be Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s massive and unnecessary spending spree in response to the Covid Pandemic put inflation and the price rises of essentials on crack, raising wages continuously to meet what will likely now become constant price rises, will just make an existing problem and the pain it causes the people who didn’t create that problem even worse.

Few can and even fewer want to see or understand the real causes and the history of the problems that the UK now faces. It is just too easy to blame someone they don’t agree with or don’t like at a very shallow level, whilst making the fundamental depth and breadth of the corrosive issues and practices that are institutionally still at work, significantly worse.

Greed, or rather the drive to make money, accumulate wealth, ambition and attaining power, are the seedbed and growth accelerator of each and every problem that the UK – and much of the World – is now experiencing.

So long has this addictive malaise been at work, our whole system of governance and the systems, procedures, regulations and laws that relate to everything, now support the funneling of wealth towards those who already have more. Just so that they can obtain even more.

Politicians have always had the ability to stop this and to rebalance the system so that it works fairly and equitably towards everyone.

However, to todays weak-minded and glory seeking politicians, public representation is not what getting themselves elected is about.

If our politicians were to use the power and responsibility that they have – as they proved that they can do, when they took the massively damaging steps to shut everything down during Lockdown – they could stop the escalation of prices that do not need to rise in just one day.

They won’t. Because they are all in it up to their bloody necks.

Our politicians believe that their future depends on maintaining the status quo and continuing to do things the same way that they always have been.

With inept and incompetent politicians who lack even the basic ability to lead, and union barons who have been gifted circumstances that those who can change things now refuse to control, we find ourselves within a rich mix of events and circumstances that together with all the very different problems that we individually face are now adding up to a very dark, but nonetheless perfect storm.

The failure of those to act whose responsibility it is to act, coupled with the failure of others to show restraint whilst neglecting the responsibility that we all have to consider each other, does indeed foretell that the only destination we can reach will be an unmitigated crash or complete system collapse.

It is sad indeed, that none of these people who have the power and influence to do things that will help us, can see, value or appreciate what we all truly share in common. And that instead, the only thing that defines and unifies them is the commonality of their selfishness and greed.

The best thing for everyone would be if every MP and Party we have stood down and agreed to never stand again. The problem is, big money would just replace them

There is a twisted hilarity to hearing the words come from your own mouth and almost watching them solidify as they cross the air, forming the sentence ‘Out of the two candidates running to be PM, Boris is by far the better choice’.

The problem for us all, is that when the choices you have from an entire Parliament and political system are so desperately bad, you at some point have to recognise that without a genuine alternative – rather than just another politician who looks and sounds different, and may well wear a different colored badge – we have actually reached the point in the downward spiral of this bolted-shut ecosystem where every change is just going to compound the problems and make everything worse.

Yes, the reality is that stark!

Whilst we cannot vote for a real Polternative, Boris and the entire muppet show or wannabes and out-of-touchies that surround him on all sides of the so-called political divide, are all that we can choose from. And this grim pool of self-servants will continue to block every seat to our Parliament until the disasters they are collectively responsible for have fully unfolded, and all of us outside of the Westminster bubble have woken up to reality and accepted that they no longer are the de facto choice.

We must wait, because they will not do the decent thing and walk away, as they ALL really now should. To do so would require them all to be very big and to have a level of self-awareness that is clearly absent, as the reality is that the UK would otherwise be nowhere near the situation that we now are in. Knocking on the door of a catastrophic downturn that may well signify the UKs role in the end of an entire world epoch, as we now arguably are.

However, this imaginary moment or lapse from their usual reason would be wasted if it were to happen today, as the big money that influences and controls everything that all of our standing politicians already do, would simply fill the void with other stooges who would do exactly whatever the money wanted them to do.

Sooner or later, we are all going to realise that the only way to break this seemingly perpetual cycle, where life is always dictated by how those in power, with influence or with great wealth believe it should be, will be to turn the entire top-down system on its head. To restore and rebuild our democracy with a focus on localism in its truest sense, from the grassroots up, and create a system of governance that puts human beings, life, the way we live, balance and fairness at the forefront of all public policy. You know; the way it should have always been!

The Tipping Point of the coming Economic & Systemic Crash

Whilst a systemic and financial collapse may not appear to be or have the stop-start feel that the ending of one system that will have to be replaced by another suggests, the reality we face is that for what may only be a short period of time, none of the currencies we use either in physical or digital form, will have any value when it comes to being able to secure anything that we need to buy or survive.

Despite what your immediate thoughts might be after reading that we might find ourselves having to function without any form of money for a period of time, it is within or as part of the collapse of the financial part of the current system where the seedbed of the greatest opportunity for getting everything right for our future exists.

When boiled down to the purest elements or the nuts and bolts of what the current Top-Down hierarchical system really is, it is all about the belief that everything we do or that we can achieve in life is based on money and the accumulation of material wealth, and the power and influence that supposedly goes with it.

At the point when circumstances and practicality tell us through our experience, that this belief, idea, principle, motivation – or whatever you want to call it, no longer works, we will have reached a seminal moment when the light can shine through on the darkness of our current reality, and our true values and understanding of what life is and how it should really be will have an open door to changing life for the better for us all.

I’m not trying to make light of what happens when the world we know that runs on money in every way, simply stops functioning because money doesn’t work anymore.

It will be hard. In fact, it will be very hard. But adversity really is the mother of invention, and it is at this point that we have the opportunity at local, community level to establish a new True Economy, based on Local Market Exchanges, that will feed into and provide the basis of how our entire new system of governance works.

Why the Money Based Order or System is collapsing now

Even a system that is built upon a value set that is completely wrong, has rules that must be obeyed if it is to survive and last.

As generations of politicians, business leaders, bankers and other elites have passed, they have increasingly lost sight of the very framework that protects them.

They have taken their positions for granted, and increasingly failed to put enough back into the system to ensure that the myth still works for the very people they are abusing through their acts.

The combination of Globalisation and the adoption of The FIAT Money system took their greed too far, with the result that the divide between rich and poor has never been so far apart.  

‘Wealth inequality’ quite literally leaves people living and experiencing entire lifetimes with their productive focus being only upon what they need to do to keep their heads above water.

Life for far too many, has literally and unnecessarily become all about the fight to survive.

The people who struggle at the hands of The Money Based Order have done nothing wrong.

Many are innocent victims of a system that quite literally exists on the basis that for some to obtain and maintain excessive material wealth, it necessarily follows that others must fail or go without – so that the few can quite literally win and keep on winning.

But it doesn’t have to be this way and it never did.

We are in the End Days of a Money Based Order or System

The World is now in a period of massive and irreversible change. Change that has come about because of years, decades and yes, centuries of political and government mismanagement.

Leadership right across the World, has increasingly got its values and motivations completely wrong, leading up to and funneling into the massive crisis that we are facing right now.

This age of public policy mismanagement is based upon and has revolved around one thing: Money.

Today, we are experiencing the death throws of the Money Based Order.

Money Based, because the desire and pursuit of wealth, influence, power and everything that goes with it, all feed into the same perverse and twisted reality. One that over a period of many generations, has led to money becoming the benchmark upon which we measure the value of everything in our lives.

The greed that the creation of the Money Based Order unleashed could never be satisfied by the actions of those addicted to it.

Generation after generation of wealthy and powerful people, who have then handed that wealth and power down, have always wanted to accumulate more and more, with the next generation inevitably wanting to outdo the last.

What the elites responsible for all this have neither realised nor appreciated has been the true cost. The fact that every product, industry, profession or any other innovation or tool that has been created, that they have then harnessed purely with the intention of increasing the bottom line, has always come at an increasing level of human cost. One that could never be offset by the redistribution of even the largest sums of the profits they have made.

Through the cycles of the industrial ages, leading right up to everything and every innovation that we are experiencing now, the exploitation of the poor or poorer by the rich or the richer, has always been cleverer and better hidden than it ever was before.

The Money Based Order has gone through an entire process of evolution that began with slavery and people quite literally being physically shackled, through a process of evolution to the contemporary equivalent that we know as debt and every kind of financial misery that go with it.

Our plight today is arguably even more sinister and cruel. Because the prison cell is our mind, and the shackles hide in plain sight.

What will happen during the acute stages of The Great Reset?

Whether it’s the supply chains that bring us our food, clothes and the things that we need just to survive, or the utilities, fuel, transport and other services that we are used to having access to, the chances are that they we will not be able to access them completely, or that access will be reduced to a rationed or irregular form.

For some things, the experience of shortages or going without will just be temporary, simply because they really are the things that we actually need.

Where the things that we only believe we need but are things that we only actually want are concerned, we are likely to find that the supply of many of these ‘things’ will never return.

It is during this ‘acute’ stage of ‘The Great Reset’ that things will be very uncertain.

The acute stage of ‘The Great Reset’ is when we will have to make do in ways that we have never experienced. It will be a time when we will not only have to do our part, but also rely upon the goodwill and a sense of community around us in a way that we have never lived our lives before.

The acute stage of ‘The Great Reset’ will be a period of time when we will need to learn to survive.

Levelling Level | Why Levelling Level is important now

April 9, 2022 3 comments

As the reader will already be aware, we are experiencing and navigating our way through very challenging times.

The problems discussed here are not new. They have been getting progressively worse over a long period of time. They have been hiding menacingly in plain sight.

There has been no self-serving incentive for those who have the responsibility and power to take any meaningful steps towards finding genuine solutions to the problems that society faces and to do everything that is necessary to sort them all out.

Whilst change is happening around us all the time, it often does so without us being consciously aware.

The kind of change that is now required is so profound that it is only a unique set of circumstances that touch everyone and causes pain to each of us in some way, that will provide the incentive for us to think differently.

Only then will we be open to a change in thinking that will create a much healthier way of living for us individually, as well as making fairness and balance a part of everyone’s life.

Such a unique set of circumstances or events now exist and are underway.

A series of events, that began with Brexit, then The Covid Pandemic and now the Invasion of Ukraine, have become the catalysts that have precipitated and accelerated everything that we know to change around us.

They are the first steps of a Financial and Systemic collapse that none of the current political elites have the power to control.

Somewhat ironically, it is the decisions that these same ‘leaders’ have been making in response to these events that are the real cause of all the problems that society faces today. This same malign influence has been at work, not only for the past six or seven years. But for what we must recognise as being decades of time.

These same few are using the term ‘Reset’ or ‘Great Reset’ as a forewarning that we will ignore at our peril.

Their misuse of these terms is a forewarning that the existing elites intend to use the collapse that is underway as an opportunity to reboot the existing system that has benefitted them so well, so that it will work even better for them – all under the auspices of what will be much tighter control.

However, what the elites haven’t banked on, is that things are set to change in such a way, and to such a degree, that all of the reasons and motives that drive these people – at considerable cost to us all – are going to be exposed to daylight. The actions and motives of the elites will then be seen and understood by all.

The unsustainable ways that we have been living under their manipulative leadership will come to an end.

We will be forced to revalue life and what the important parts of it are.

Times ahead are likely to be painful for us. But the pain of experience is how we really learn. And as we learn and realise what the basic essentials for life – in both a practical and mentally healthy way – really are, we will also understand what any of us would need if we found ourselves in circumstances where we were having to ‘just get by’.

The Correction of Prices

It is important to not get hung up on the terminologies being used.

Words have different meanings and different uses for different people, and in no industry or situation have so many esoteric terms been in use with the deliberate intent of suggesting that magicians are at work as there are today within the financial or banking trades.

Money behaves as it does today and the goods and services that we need and used are priced as they are, because it has been in somebody’s interest – usually making profit – for them to work in that way.

As we established earlier, a reset in its most literal form, will not help anyone as we go forward.

It would simply mean that we have the same players and influences sat at the top of a system where nothing works as well and in fact gets progressively worse for every level of the hierarchy, as you travel down.

The collapse of everything that is underway, will, through a chain of events, reach a place where we will all accept that the financial system that we have and the way that money is managed and used to control every part of life, cannot continue as it has.

The prices of everything that is essential to live and to survive will have to reflect its true cost to produce or provide, with the least number of separate interests in that system of supply – or the supply chain that is involved.

This inevitable process or correction of prices will result in what appears to be a devaluation of the Pound.

But as a process that compressively corrects the pricing of everything and takes it back to a level that reflects its true value, the value of everything that we own will remain exactly the same in relative terms.

It is just the case that the way we calculate costs, profitability and how we are taxed on what we have or possess from that point onwards that will no longer be the same.

Kier Starmer & Ed Davey are already taking their idea of securing change at the next Election seriously. So why isn’t anyone who wants real change in our political system doing the same?

Regrettably, a certain truth is that none of us will see or hear messages that we are not ready to see or hear, or that for some reason we want to avoid. This is especially so, when those messages are an uncomfortable truth that it suits our purposes to run away from.

No uncomfortable truth exists that is less uncomfortable for so many of us, than we have the idiots in politics and running the Country that we have, because we are the ones who made the choice to elect the politicians and all the political parties that we have already got.

Our memories are short. So short in fact, we have forgotten or overlooked that the political choices of the three mainstream parties or tribes that we have today are all the same. That these parties ultimately deliver the same thing. That it is only the branding, the words and the faces that actually change.

At election time, our interest in who the people really are who present themselves at our doorsteps promising this and promising that in exchange for our votes is breathtakingly short. As such, it has become all too easy to miss the reality that moving the cross that we mark on our ballot papers from one party or from one box to another, actually means that we are voting for the same things.

The same stories with the same unhappy endings for all of us are all wrapped differently and presented to us as change. But everything this political class does and believes is fundamentally the same – whether they are Conservative, Labour or Liberal Democrat in name.

Boris lies, they all lie. But when the time comes, will we opt to change anything?

If ever there was a time when more people are likely to become suspicious, it is during a period like now, when the experiences that we have been having at the hands of these charlatans over the past two years is leading to more and more of us to feel like we have started to wake up.

Those with power, sitting as MPs from all the Parties in our Parliament may well suspect that the tables are turning, even if they are too blind to understand why. They have much to lose if the system that feeds their self-interest collapses. They will do whatever they need to, to make sure that they can continue on behaving in exactly the same way.

So, when we see the news that Leader of the Labour Party Keir Starmer and Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey are working up a non-aggression pact for the next General Election, we should all be very concerned that the self-preservation powers of a dangerously self-serving political culture are already very hard at work.

Whatever Labour and the Liberal Democrats cook up between them in order to manipulate the outcome of any constituency vote when the next General Election comes, the outcome for us – whether Conservative, Labour, Lib Dem or any coalition government made up of the parties that we currently have, will inevitably be the same or even worse. That is, if they appear to be the only alternative to the Tory Government that we have currently got.

They will only appear to be the alternative to Johnson or whoever replaces him, if we don’t create the real alternative to all of them. Like Starmer and Davy are already doing – we need to be working on the creation and the development of that alternative RIGHT NOW!

Sadly, everyone who is out there and championing the fact that we need to have change, may well be one of those failing to understand that change will not just appear because we demand it.

Because with people in government today or at any time in the future who are fundamentally the same, with the same priorities and the same ways of manipulating everything at the level they are and have been doing blocking all the seats within our Parliament – the more things change, the more they stay the same.

You may not like to read or feel comfortable with what I am saying. But the chances are that you already know deep down that it is the truth.

The truth beyond that understanding of what the real problem with British Politics is now, is also that the kind of government that we need and that is worth having will not just arrive by chance. It will take a lot of very hard work.

The hard work that I am talking about is different. Different, because we are used to everything coming at us in politics from the top down.

This new politics must come from the grassroots and then go up. That is, if meaningful and beneficial change for us all is going to actually arrive at an election and then do all of its good work in the Parliamentary terms to come.

For as long as the narrative continues to be set by the same people that we have today, the same narrative will continue.

They may not be Johnson, Sunak, Truss or any other Tory buffoon. But Starmer, Davey and all of the politicians behind them are, think and stand for exactly the same – as well as a few well-known names leading other political groups and parties outside of parliament today too.

Because the shared rationale behind it all is built on self-interest, the direction of travel will be for things to become invariably worse, whatever happens next, without there being a genuine choice for change.

Every day that passes that the work to replace and provide a real alternative to all these clowns hasn’t begun, is a day nearer to us having up to five years more of the lack of understanding, the out of touch policies and a whole establishment regime that exists only to pursue what works only in its favour and best interests.

We need and we deserve a lot more. But the miracle won’t arrive until we have all done our bit to invite it into our lives and helped it start.

Your voice, your views, your experience are important.

Be part of the debate. Be part of the solution. Be part of what needs to start now.

A crash doesn’t necessarily arrive with a bang. Especially if you don’t have ears to hear or eyes to see it

February 4, 2022 Leave a comment

Over the past two years, I have found myself regularly blogging and more recently vlogging about different subjects that people really don’t want to see, hear or consider.

To be fair, I often hesitate before creating any content that can or would be considered predictive in any way.

But it has become increasingly difficult to avoid discussing the effects and consequences that you can see will come about as a direct or indirect result of events taking place around us, or the decisions that our Politicians and Government have made.

Perhaps the most important and most relevant to what is going on around us now, has been when I have shared my thoughts on the coming financial and systemic collapse. A collapse that will be accompanied by a cost-of-living crisis and massive fall in the standard of living for us all, and an accompanying reset of the way that everything works that will inevitably affect us all.

The problem – as a content creator, when discussing such things – is that words like Reset, Correction, Crisis and Crash, conjure up the idea or expectation that change of the kind being discussed will literally arrive in the moment or overnight.

It won’t. Change is happening continually. Change is most radical or most effective when we aren’t even conscious of it happening.

From the point of view and the experience that I offer to share each time that I write or speak, I do so knowing that I have an end view or result in mind, that will come into being through a series of cumulative events, rather than it all arriving at once and with such force that it feels like being hit head-on by a car.

Many people are wandering around on social media today, proclaiming that they are ‘awake’ to what Governments are doing and what they have done. The uncomfortable reality, however, is that anyone who has had what feels like a eureka or watershed moment about a subject they feel passionate about is usually only awakened or has simply had their eyes opened about some of the truths relating to that subject. Very rarely will that experience have opened up their understanding beyond just another layer of hidden truths and certainly not about anything more than that one thing.

We may have eyes and ears, but can neither see nor hear anything that is happening around us, unless the experience we have is both relevant and relates to the subject at hand.

Yes, we may see a news headline and believe we know and understand what it is all about. But without that event or anything about it having touched our own lives and experience in any way, face value is as deep as our understanding will be about it. Until that is, events arrive in our lives that change that experience and understanding that we have about the subject in some way.

So, as we begin to transit the realities of the new world that the catalyst, which was the Covid Pandemic created, it is perhaps the right moment to acknowledge firstly that things have already changed. That they are not going back to how they were before March 2020. That nothing will ever be the same again.

Next, and perhaps more importantly, we should take time to stop, reflect upon and consider what news of sky-rocketing inflation, set against a situation where many people cannot already afford to feed themselves or heat their homes (never mind everything else…) really means and what it now tells us about where we are.

The reality that we must face, is that massive change is already underway.

Change that the political class we are currently burdened with helped to create.

Change brought into being by ineptitude, self-serving stupidity and the lack of ability of this political class to execute the real requirements of public representative roles.

We are already on the first steps of a systemic collapse today. A collapse that cannot and will not be dealt with or addressed by the solutions, ideas and motivations of Politicians and an establishment that have a vested interest in doing everything they can to return things to where they once were.

As I have already said, those days are gone. And what we are experiencing today will in hindsight prove to be very important stages in the journey to where a very new and very different way for us all to live and so things was born. They key is to bear in mind that this massive and probably breath-taking change will not have arrived overnight – even if to some, the moment they lack food, money or fuel will make it feel that way.

The biggest and most troubling question about awakening to what all this means, is how many will realise what’s happening and how many of those will be ready and prepared to think and do things differently, before we all wake up to a serious amount of pain.

Think differently, Vote differently, Then be able to live your life differently. The choice – and therefore the power, is all yours.

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.

‘Fake it ’til you make it’ is no way to lead a Country and we are now on the brink of seeing our financial and economic system implode

August 9, 2021 Leave a comment

Politics has for a long time relied on the occurrence of unforeseen events to let blagging politicians get themselves off the hook for problems they created that would otherwise be exposed and visible for the whole world to see.

When Covid arrived on the political scene, the scramble to cover up and utilise the dubious promise of an umbrella to hide all previous sins appears to have been too good and opportunity for our political classes to miss. In fact, so much so, the chronology of events makes me wonder if Boris rubbed his hands together at the first emergency Cabinet Meeting and declared ‘ladies and gentlemen; go ahead, go and do your absolute worst’.

Ok. So, the reality might not have been quite like that. Let’s give them the benefit of the doubt here and say the response might not have been conscious or openly calculated at all.

The reason I say this, is because of how important it is to understand just how politics works in the minds of those who supposedly lead us. Especially when there is an entire Parliament full of MPs who should never have been elected and are incapable of really leading anyone. So, at the first sign of a crisis, they are inclined to reach out for any dead horse and flog it in the hope that it will work.

No, I realise that some of you reading this blog are convinced that there is a much more sinister plan at work that underpins everything during the Covid Pandemic that the Johnson Government has done. But we really do have a Government constructed of politicians who are so stupid, unread and inexperienced, that they will willingly embrace any philosophy or set of ideas that any overconfident SPAD or advisor confidently convinces them will work – that is, if they hadn’t found the same textbook first.

Oddly enough, the point I’m going to focus on here is not about the misuse of statistics and behavioural science to manipulate and coerce people to doing whatever or politicians so ruthlessly want. Enough has and will be said about that elsewhere.

No, the area of policy that I want to think about more clearly, is the financial remedies that our Chancellor Rishi Sunak invented. The printing of non-existent money to back the whole lockdown policy up. And the disastrous time bomb waiting to go off that has been building in size for decades but was turbocharged the moment that the Chancellor and the Johnson Government began its massive cash giveaway.

Contrary to the thoughts of many, the events of the past 18 months really are not isolated, other than there being the all-covering veil of a Viral Pandemic underway. The focus that Covid has been given created a cloud of fear and misdirection that has allowed an inept and irresponsible Government to hide or avoid many other troubling public policy issues as if they have simply been removed from the frame.

But money, the way it is created, legislated, revered and actually worshipped – like it is a god, isn’t just a problem making the rich even richer, whilst making life increasingly hard for the middle classes and poor. It is also the elixir of extended political life and longevity of power for gutless politicians with little or no wherewithal who believe there are no problems that cannot be solved if you just produce the public cheque book and don’t give a shit about the real cost.

In the decades up to the beginning of the Covid Pandemic, the recycling of this particular idea and the philosophy that underpins government economic thinking has been quite incredible. Based on flawed neoliberal thinking and the post 1971 FIAT money regime – where FIAT literally means ‘let it be done’, the bizarre approach to money and governance that ‘it will be this way because we say so’ has grown and grown in popularity with the political classes and has appeared to work effectively for 50 years. Incredibly, it even failing to be derailed when private banks that had been let loose from legislation as part of the same ‘free market’ thinking were bailed out with public money following the 2008 Financial Crisis – simply because politicians are so invested in the idea that the system cannot fail and therefore must be ‘helped’ to work.

To anyone who takes these things completely at face value – as the political classes have done – and says to themselves ‘it worked for 50 years, so it cannot possibly go wrong’, there clearly was no limit to what solutions could be conjured up in a crisis and sold publicly as beneficial to all. Whereas what politicians have really been doing with all this invented money – and particularly since the Pandemic began – is place massive bets on everything coming right if enough money is thrown at the problem for long enough. They literally believe that what they are saying, rather than what they are doing, will ultimately prove to be the truth, by faking it until they make it be so.

The money that the Government has been using to prop up non-existent jobs through a continually extended furlough scheme; the money it has used to underwritten crippling loans to businesses that will never be able to afford them, and the money it is now fire hosing at every public policy it thinks will get it out of trouble and win votes is all created – just like successive governments have been doing for decades before.

The money they are using simply doesn’t exist. Yet the politicians are so drunk from drinking at this poisoned well, all they can think of doing is printing even more.

Yes, there really is a philosophy behind all of this that the economists and academics that our politicians listen to insist really works.

You may even be thinking that if this is all true, what is the problem if it works?

The problem is that it doesn’t. It is imagination, dreamworlds and a visit to fantasy land writ large.

Whilst it is certainly true to say that neoliberalism has worked out well over 50 years for the few, it really hasn’t been working out very well for the majority of people. And if the economy were to be viewed as an engine – as it very often is, then just like keeping your foot down on a red-lining engine might see it keep going for longer than expected, the question is always when, not if the engine will blow, and when it does, it will be the whole vehicle that breaks.

Rishi Sunak, Boris Johnson, this Government and the whole Parliament that has enabled them, have literally gone too far with a very dangerous approach to money and economics. One that may have been good whilst it lasted but is about to blow up and create a financial disaster of such epic proportions that not even the WEF are going to know how to pick up and rebuild the pieces so that they can press ‘restart’.

The public debt that is a real legacy of the Johnson era is simply too big for all of us to be expected to pay off this time. No amount of clever accounting and rebranding in terms of future GDP or other ways of calculating national economic output will make this ridiculous level of debt go away.

And Boris & Co. haven’t even done this on their own. Governments right the way around the world have been doing exactly the same things for all this time and have also gone into overdrive to finance an overkill response to a flu-like virus that was never necessary, could and should have been handled very differently and has now made it inevitable that we cannot go on as we have been.

We must rethink everything. And for us to get there, we are about to experience an incredible period of financially derived pain.

If you take the time and watch all the media available to you closely, the signs of what is coming are already beginning to unfold. But they are being covered by the mainstream media only in isolation – that is if they are even being covered by them at all.

The USA economy and the US Dollar’s collapse as the World’s Reserve Currency are looking increasingly likely to be the point where this dreamt up system can no longer function and the whole economic system explodes.

But that’s not to say that it couldn’t all kick off in the UK first. And stories like energy price hikes this autumn that they are that massive financial upheaval for us all is queued up and is about to start.

The biggest problem that we face today, isn’t finding a way to take a foot off the gas and calm the engine. Johnson and all of his chums have already driven the vehicle to the point of destruction and the momentum their policies have created will take this all over the point which was too far.

The problem we have is that when the engine blows, the wheels fall off and everything crashes – as we can now be almost certain that it will, we will still have the same politicians or politicians who will behave just like them left in charge.

The emperor has no clothes. You’ve seen what Boris and this whole sorry excuse for a Parliament did with their response to Covid. Just wait until the real trouble starts.

Using Planning Reform to make it even easier to build houses is the obvious solution for a political class that always takes the easy option without view of the consequences first

Politicians are no longer big enough to tackle or even attempt to address issues that they cannot be sure they can control. It is a fool’s game.

Government has been blighted by very normal, overly ambitious people styling themselves as public leaders, whose greatest skill is sniffing out and repelling any meaningful response to the issues and actions that carry the greatest risk to themselves.

The irony should not be lost on many, that if governments were to apply themselves fully and without compromise to addressing the issues of their time and without fear of any electoral risk to them by doing so, they would have done all they need to get re-elected with a decent majority at the end of their 5-year-term.

Regrettably – and to the continued cost of the British Public, this is not how our politicians roll.

Our politicians take the easy and politically lazy route to managing public policy. They deal with issues in isolation, giving little or no consideration to the impact upon other areas of public policy. They focus on the consequences of their actions only for themselves when they should be prioritising the consequences for us all.

The suggestion that using Planning Reform to make it easier to build houses will solve the housing crisis is nothing more than the siren call of greed. A call to action that will line the pockets of the same financiers, builders and political chums as always, whilst people whose lives are being increasingly destroyed by the exponential growth of personal and private debt also see countless other factors that give quality to their lives smashed unnecessarily upon these hidden rocks.

No human being can be in two places at once. Therefore, no human being needs two places in which to live.

Just as is the case in every other part of life, there is ‘enough for everyone’s need, but never enough for everyone’s greed’.

Money, created by a monetary and financial system that is only fair and equitable to those who have no need for any more of it, should not enable anyone to obtain more than they need to facilitate anything more than the requirements of day-to-day function or living. Certainly not when doing so comes at the cost of preventing others with less from having the same.

With a growing population, there will always be a relative need for the country to build new homes. But increasing home building exponentially, just so the whims of some can be met and the profiteering and greed of others can be fed is no solution to a problem that can be solved politically with better, more appropriate and fairer use of resources that already exist.

You never see house prices fall in the area where a new development is built. But you do see problems with flooding. You see the negative impact on infrastructure like roads, schools and GPs Surgeries.

Excessive building leads to a fall in the quality of life for countless numbers of people, many of them everyday, low-wage people who grew up locally. Real people who are being pushed out by deliberately engineered inflation meaning that the new houses the government and media tells us are being built to help them will continue to be the prized lifetime asset they will never be able to afford.

Whilst the term ‘Reset’ or ‘Great Reset’ has been adopted by both the World Economic Forum and by those who love to hate them, there is indeed no better term that can be used to describe what needs to happen to the UKs and the International Monetary and Financial systems so that life and the ability of everyone to live it becomes something that we all can financially afford.

The disproportionate value of homes, relative to what they are genuinely worth could quickly be addressed to a significant degree by a revaluation and rebalancing of the way money is used and manipulated and how the economy works.

But money itself has to be viewed as nothing more than the unit of exchange that it is, rather than the god-like ‘thing’ that greed and selfishness has allowed it to become.

There are already a range of devices that the Government could use to address second and multiple home ownership. This would immediately improve housing stock availability and remove the need for housebuilding to increase or to continue in the forms that are destroying local communities and the environments around them – when there already exists a much more appropriate choice.

Yet our politicians will not use taxation or bans on multiple home ownership, because it would mean wading through a political minefield that they consider too risky to their chances of re-election. They are therefore deemed to be actions that they must do everything to avoid.

By making public policy decisions in this way, our politicians are failing to do the right thing for the people they represent. Meanwhile they are continually creating more and more troublesome consequences for everyone, which they will then once again do everything to avoid.

This lack of leadership in government and the rejection of responsibility by this political class means that the basics of life for many are simply too expensive to afford.

There. Is. NO. CONSPIRACY. (Don’t get high on David Icke’s supply…)

August 27, 2020 2 comments

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

Reason seems not only to have left the Government and the process of making decisions for us all. It also appears to have evaporated from the thinking of more or less everyone who has lined themselves up against the Government under the guise of being Lockdown Sceptics, Anti-Lockdown, Anti-Mask, Anti-Social Distancing or indeed any of the growing number of Anti-Government activist movements that the Lockdown has brought into being.

In what seems to have been a very quick turn of events – and when I say quick, I am numbering this development in terms of just a few days – what looked like it might become a growing legitimate campaign lining up against the injustices visited upon us all, has entered and then accelerated on a downward spiral of obsessing over conspiracy theories as a way of explaining and justifying its cause.

Trying to explain or find a way to explain events that appear to defy logic – as is the case with just about everything that the Government has recently done – is perfectly natural for all of us.

However, there is nothing for anyone to be gained by attempting to use conspiracy theories to explain the actions of very stupid politicians who have power and responsibility that they have no idea how to control.

Too many of us look for the most complicated ways to explain things we are unhappy with. Yet it is the simplest explanation that will usually do.

Hanlon’s Razer says ‘Never Attribute to Malice That Which Can be Adequately Explained By Stupidity.

Whilst it seems impossible to believe that we could have a completely inept, incompetent Government ‘running’ the UK today – especially in the middle of a national crisis, this is the reality we have to face.

We give politicians far more credit than they deserve and fall into the trap of believing that anyone who has attained high or elected office must surely be as clever or as intelligent as they come.

People can have the ‘best’ education, come from the ‘best’ backgrounds, have the ‘best’ connections and have lives that make it look like they have been privileged in every single way. But they can still be completely and utterly stupid. Being in politics and elected to high office does not make them immune from the moments or entire lifetimes of stupidity that can afflict us all.

This is about basic human behaviour. The way that normal people behave. The only difference when we consider the case of the people who lead us is the way those of us who outside the Westminster bubble perceive these ‘politicians’ to be.

There is no grand plan at work. Coronavirus is not the weapon of a clandestine secret world government that sits above Boris Johnson and his Government, actively pulling their strings.

Yes, the Lockdown and the Johnson Government’s actions in response to it are going to bring about a massive ‘reset’.

But those actions have caused the coming reset. The outcomes they have and will create were not in any way planned in advance.

The Coronavirus Pandemic and the fallout from their response to it is not something that Johnson & Co were equipped to deal with. It is not something that they have precipitated knowingly by choice.

Sadly, by failing to recognise that politicians cannot and will not change their direction and their way of doing things because they are behaving stupidly, many of the people who are talking up conspiracies to explain this stupidity are themselves behaving stupidly too.

This is bad enough. But when time is so short, when an alternative to the current political choices may be needed in just the few months ahead, the failure to step back and see that there is a bigger picture at work could easily close the minds of the many to what presented differently could easily become a highly credible choice to what we already have.

Aligning the ‘anti-government’ movement with voices such as David Icke will quickly make the alternative choice to the Government and broken political system they represent an impossible one for the majority of people.

People already are or very soon will be desperate for someone or something credible to fill the void that will appear the moment that the Government’s time is done.

The chaos, bitterness, hatred and anger that David Icke and his ideas represent are certainly not credible. They are not the solution.

The majority of people know this at a visceral level, without ever needing to give the matter another thought. And they will be switched off the moment they become aware that he is involved.

If Icke’s ideas were sold purely as metaphor and nothing else, some might argue that there is validity within the themes. There might even be recognition of some partial truths.

But they are not.

Icke’s ideas are sold as being unadulterated fact and that creates a danger in everything that he and the people who promote his ideas and way of thinking do.

There is great irony in Icke’s proclamation of being the son of God. The Church of England is a living, breathing example of how something in the mainstream that works well when it allows people to have ‘faith’ is then rejected by the majority when it presents metaphorical ‘teachings’ as absolute fact.

The British Public need a lot more than conspiracy theories to get them out of the hole that this Government and generations of politicians just like them have actively dug for us.

This Government is not going to listen to reason, to life experience or anything else that we outside the bubble know and understand to be perfectly reasonable expectations to place on public representatives. Because their stupidity and self-serving nature leads them to believe that they have a choice.

It is because politicians have not been listening to us for so long, that we have a level of stupidity in government today that makes rational people believe that the decisions being taken could only be the creation of a malevolent force that is deliberately intent on doing us all harm.

We have to remove the political culture that this Government represents from every position of public representation and public power or responsibility, so that selfishness and stupidity in decision making can no longer do innocent British People any harm.

But to achieve this, we MUST employ a reasoned and fully considered approach that includes and motivates everyone. Not just those who think that changing any of this is as simple as a political choice.

Conspiracies are not going to wash with the majority. Deep down, people know that basic human nature is pretty much guaranteed to be the underlying cause of anything that ends up hurting anyone. The default setting of the human condition is to be selfish and self-serving. Others become victims of these default choices as a consequence and rarely as a deliberate choice.

Of the growing number of people now lining up against this rotten Government and all that it does, it would only take a handful to begin building the movement for change that would have all the right ingredients required for success and to make it work.

The real game in town is replacing this Government with the right people, not challenging everything they are getting wrong

August 19, 2020 2 comments

One of the biggest challenges that anyone faces who doesn’t understand how the wheels turn in politics and government is that even when things look totally dire in real time, no matter what heads may roll in the meantime, the critical point of resultant change or to the time that the difference can be made often follows much later, possibly weeks, months or even years ahead.

It’s one of the reasons that you might have heard the expression ‘politics is a long game’. Regrettably, those of us at the point of literally just having been hurt or having experienced pain from what Boris and his Government of stupid politicians has done seldom have the patience to be able to stand back and review the options, and understandably so.

If you look beyond the establishment narratives that are being pumped out by politicians and the mainstream media, you will see a whole movement of activists developing, that is responding directly to the injustices that the Johnson Government is visiting upon us. Albeit it is a rather discombobulated one.

The inability of this movement to coalesce around anything meaningful at this moment in time is regrettable. The stakes for us all could probably not be higher.

Yet the obsession that many of the independently minded activists, this anti-establishment movement has with being right and therefore making the people they see as stupid wrong, is simply keeping the focus away from the bigger issues that are at work here. Eyes are literally being targeted at completely the wrong place.

Twitter this morning is full of normally very sensible and intelligent people comparing notes on being blocked, stressing how they were ‘having a genuine conversation’ before they were, whilst branding those who might be following the orders of a completely dysfunctional regime as being ‘wrong’, even though the people they are doing-down are technically or legally only doing what’s right.

That moment of self-congratulation that can only ever become real and ‘perfectly’ right once it has been shared with the adoration of the echo chamber does feel very real for anyone whose main objective is to be right, rather than happy, all of the time.

Trolling – which is what an obsessive need to keep ‘debating’ people online with the explicit purpose of making them wrong actually is – is borne from the reality that the ‘hit’ that comes from being ‘proved right’ is temporary and fleeting just like the abuse or habitual use of any drug.

Meanwhile, the bigger picture, the main story and the opportunity to do something positive and good is passing these self-styled activists right on by – Potentially this time at the cost of us all.

Regrettably, even a significant percentage of politicians, officers, civil servants and executives across government and the public sector do not understand how the whole thing really works. That is a very big part of the reason that the Country is in the mess that it is with the process of things coming to a head only having been sped up since the Coronavirus Pandemic began.

The things that Boris and his Government have done and the damage that they have caused us all cannot and will not be addressed by each and every one of us outside the Westminster bubble staring each other down and having a scrap over whether your position on supporting the Government or being anti whatever it is that you are actually against is right, wrong or the ‘truth’.

Of all the overpopulation of elephants that are congregating in this room, there is a comparative mammoth sat quietly in the background that is so big, it could eat not only the other elephants, but this whole room of chaos in one bite.

The reality hiding in plain sight is that all the problems can and will only be dealt with and resolved by a different government led by very different people to the ones that we have. Leaders who are motivated like none of the stupid politicians that we have elected before.

Focusing on the Lockdown, Social Distancing, wearing Masks, Exam results or whatever has affected you or those important to you in some way directly or emotionally won’t now change a thing.

The political class that we have is so stupid and self-centred that it can and will only respond to anything that it sees to be either an electoral risk or has the potential to get them where they want to be.

Fear breeds fear. It is the fear of losing control that led these very stupid politicians to unleash so many programmes of fear upon us all with the aim of controlling the public – because they believed they could – when they should have been using the considerable public resources at their disposal to control only the spread of Coronavirus. Regrettably, they are fearful of everything and believed that they could not.

As I wrote in my blog yesterday, there is a window of opportunity for a movement for change to come together now and everything right.

The Johnson Government will reach its implosion point probably withing 5 or 6 months at most. When it does, we the British Public need to replace them with people who are genuine leaders who understand the bigger picture in a way that many of us do not and should not have to. Leaders who can and will work tirelessly for us all until everything and every injustice is put right.

The solution will not come from any of the political groups or political parties that are at Westminster now. They and their people are all cut from the same cloth – no matter what colour the cloth has been dyed by their mealy-mouthed and dubious words.

Yet they – or people who are even worse than them – will step in and fill the void that the end of the Johnson Government will create, if we do not collectively start to look to play the game by the rules instead of endlessly running on to the field like puffed-up game birds that just get blocked by those we should be working with because there is no credibility in the way they play.

The first step to this is to stop looking to be right and make others wrong and focus instead on doing what is right so that we can collectively overcome all that is wrong.

This has to begin with a conversation, and until people are ready to listen as well as speak, and then open up to the reality that even those who seem to be completely right might be getting at least some of this wrong, the process of doing what’s right and dealing with everything that’s wrong for everyone cannot even begin.

Johnsons ‘Conservatives’ can use Thatcher memes as much as they like. There is a BIG difference between doing what is right for us all and doing what is right just for them

August 17, 2020 Leave a comment

The Conservative Party is in the shit. Everyone knows it. Even Tory MPs themselves. One even accused the Government of ‘wanking into the void’ this past weekend.

So, what do Conservatives do when they need to look good at a time when they are looking really bad? They roll out memes of past Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher talking about doing what’s ‘right’.

The first thing that should be cleared up before I get started is that the Conservative Party of Maggie Thatcher’s day was very different to the one that we have now. In comparison, the Conservative Party of the Cameron, May and Johnson epoch isn’t conservative at all.

As far as doing what’s right is concerned, even the great Lady herself failed to be right in the right way at least some of the time. But it is because she did have many of the principles of leadership right that the things she didn’t get ‘right’ turned out to be so wrong in the years that followed her premiership.

Decades of the wrong people being in politics for what they see as the right reasons have seen public policy across the UK going the wrong way for a very long time.

Sooner or later this political class were going to be found out. And whilst Brexit lifted the stone and shone a bright light on everything that is wrong with the system at Westminster, it was the Coronavirus Pandemic that has really exposed to the view of the world how poor our politicians really are.

People who are not real leaders of people emulate the titans of history that they and others look up to and are inspired by, in some bizarre attempt to reach out and convince the people that they are ‘just like them’.

Boris has been trying to spin this yarn throughout his public life. Now this so-called ‘Conservative’ non-government and those who support it are going through the sickening process of reprising our last great Prime Minister in the hope that it will transform the public opinion of what they do.

If this Government had been at least attempting to do what is genuinely right, the situation that the UK now faces could be a very different one indeed.

To be fair to all of the politicians who hold responsibility for creating the mess that we face, they probably did think they were doing what’s right. But the question of what’s right at the moment of any decisions can only depend upon what you genuinely believe that doing ‘what’s right’ is.

One of the great questions of human psychology is ‘Can anyone be fully altruistic?’. In the answer lies a significant clue to how we identify the people who should be leading this Country. It is only those who are committed to the principle that the answer is yes and are then prepared to take every step in public office to create solutions and the public frameworks, systems and processes to help people experience that this is right, that we will know the right decisions are genuinely going to always be made.

Generally speaking, there are three versions of doing what’s right. 1.) Doing what’s right for me. 2.) Doing what’s right for you. 3.) Doing what’s right for us all.

  1. Doing what’s right for us all: This is the real deal – or what it should be. Decisions are made with the consequences and the impacts on what the decision will touch – however many steps removed that impact might be. By far the most difficult because it requires the decision maker not only to be conscious of the implications of what they are doing whether they may seem disadvantageous for some, but also requires that they act upon it anyway. This is the real ‘bigger picture’ stuff that academia and speakers pay lip service but rarely does. At its extremes, this is Churchill destroying the French Fleet at Mers-el-Kebir or an MP employing an external applicant for a role a family member has applied for because they have the experience, track record and skills.
  2. Doing what’s right for you: This is the one where influence comes to bear. The one where lobbyists, well known organisations, media moguls, celebrities, corporate leaders and a range of bullies are able to exert undue pressure on weak minded politicians to get what they want because its good for them and/or whoever they represent or who follows them. It happens in the UK a lot more than it should (watch the documentary 3 part series on BBC iPlayer ‘The Rise of The Murdoch Dynsasty’ to see how this kind of thing can work}. Many don’t realise that doing what’s right ‘for you’, is actually the same as doing what’s right for me, because ultimately, such a choice is always made on the basis of what it will do for or how it will reflect on the decision maker.
  3. Doing what’s right for me: Sadly, this is the default setting of ‘doing what’s right’ for politicians and the leaders who populate the Establishment today. Its about how every situation will impact ‘me’ on a personal, financial, career or threat level. Actually, how the default position of human thinking works, the whole thing hinges on the natural propensity to be driven by fear in every respect at some level, usually without even being unaware that we are even doing it. For politicians this manifests itself most evidently today in their obsession in doing everything with an eye on the next election and nothing else. People who lack self-awareness to this degree should never be trusted with public office and we are now living and experiencing the consequences of politicians who simply have no idea or appreciation of life experience beyond their own.

Yes, the fact that I am writing a blog requires that I keep these descriptions succinct. But I’m sure you will get the idea.

Whilst many are obsessed with a perceived need for there always to be a plan or strategy in place before anything in the public sphere can be done, the reality of doing so usually means that there is an agenda at work which is based on the decision makers ‘need’ to do what’s right for you and/or for me. It’s all too often where everything begins to go wrong.

Some also fall into the trap of believing that compromise is always necessary in decision making. But this is at best a myth and an outright lie at worst.

If decisions are made on the basis of what is right for all by those we have elected to take them, they never have to compromise unless they want to (to do what’s right for me or you), and the perceived compromise only comes in the form of the acceptance of the change that is necessary when someone who has previously benefitted from decisions being made that were only right for them has to accept that any ‘loss’ the correct approach brings to them when taken for all is in fact no loss for them at all.

Regrettably, the Party now masquerading as a conservative Government simply isn’t capable of doing what is right for anyone other than themselves. This was obvious to those with eyes to see long before the Coronavirus Pandemic began and is now becoming evident to more and more normal people as every day of this travesty and catastrophic response of the Johnson Government goes by.

In the coming months it will become essential for us all to have the right people in place. People who have the level of awareness necessary to face the gravity of the situation that the stupid politicians we have today created as they made decision after decision that was only right for themselves.

Our new leaders must reliably and repeatedly take the right decisions at the moment they are required to do whatever is necessary – and right for us all – to get the turnaround, the reset and the realisation of a great new future emerging out this neglectful darkness done.

Nobody with any sense said these decisions would ever be easy – that’s why we elect people so that making big decisions that affect us all is not something that we all have to do. It is nonetheless essential that doing what’s right for us all is the default principle that guides our leaders in what to do.

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking the only issue with this Government is the Lockdown and what it has done since

August 14, 2020 Leave a comment

The only thing that will make any sense of the challenges, difficulties and damage that the Johnson Government has caused us all in its response to Coronavirus and their creation of the Lockdown and Social Distancing will be the opportunities that the coming reset it has precipitated will offer us. We simply MUST be sure that we capitalise on these in the very best ways that we can.

Even as I read that opening paragraph back, it is very easy to think that the subject of the problems caused by Boris, Sunak and the Government in dealing with the Coronavirus Pandemic have taken place in isolation or a bubble. It feels like it was only from their response with the Lockdown and Social Distancing measures that the problems that we are now facing began.

Today, many people are looking at the situation – not usually before they have been directly affected by it in some way themselves – and are responding to what has happened as if it is the only game in town.

There is no consideration for the process of cause and effect. People are literally falling into the trap of believing that all our problems will be solved once the Lockdown and Social Distancing have been turned around.

Picture this: This reaction is rather like it would be if you had literally been shot by Boris with a gun and the only thing on your mind would be taking the man down. You wouldn’t be thinking about how he came to have the gun, why he felt compelled to use it or any of the process that led to him being there and acting on a decision that could end your life. All you would see is that you had been shot. However, nor would there be any consideration for the real and far reaching effect that his actions had on you. What about your life going forward and how you deal with it in the years to come? And no, this is not an equation that can be offset for anyone in simple financial terms.

A strange metaphor perhaps. But getting the point across that there is a much bigger game at play over all this to a majority of people is difficult when we seem to be hardwired culturally only to focus on effects of the apparent or most immediate cause.

Some would counter at this point with the suggestion that the effect of what Boris et al have caused is the job losses, the business closures, the loss of income, the loss of education, the wrecking of exam results, the domestic abuse, the suicides and much more. And in the most literal sense they would be right.

But what these very stupid politicians have done and now continue to do was and is itself a culmination of events or rather the effect of many things that have happened over what may be many years before. That combination or compilation of effects has itself then become the focus of the problem and in itself another cause.

The problems that we have today as a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic are the outcome or effect of us having the wrong politicians in charge of the Country, presiding over a system that itself has been heading in the wrong direction for a very long time.

That is the real or genuine cause of possibly all the problems that we have right across society – not just what we are feeling or can see in front of us right now. But issues like wealth inequality, a lack of social mobility, prejudice of all kinds, the debt culture, general political disenfranchisement. These and many more are the effects of having a rotten political system that is filled with stupid politicians who are unfit to be public representatives of any kind.

The biggest risk to the future of this Country and to us all as individuals today will be going forward indefinitely and facing the coming reset with any of these people left in charge or still able to influence our direction in any way.

The anti-lockdown movement and all those who are awakening to the what the reality of Boris’, Sunak’s and this Establishment’s ‘new normal’ really is, see the pain and restrictions they face purely in terms of being the effect of what the Government has done by implementing the Lockdown and the Social Distancing measures it has taken since.

We’ve been here before in circumstances that look different but are basically the same. And sadly, our cultural disposition is that any change will do. Many of us will just accept that enough has been done if Boris and Sunak were to simply change their minds.

Yet the change that we now require for the fair and balanced future that we ALL so desperately need will not become our reality if we simply accept change as being enough in what is a very small and piecemeal form.

When the pressure reaches a level where these politicians see their ‘careers’ being at risk, they will then make the minimal changes that they believe necessary to keep their positions secure.

But it is their lack of ability, their lack of wherewithal and real-world experience, their lack of understanding of people who lead different lives, their lack of an overall unwillingness to govern for everyone and above all, their fundamental lack of the ability to lead that is at the heart of every problem that this Country has. And we collectively deserve a hell of a lot more.

People are already frustrated with being ignored by the people who are currently in control. Those vocalising their fight against masks and Social Distancing are allowing that frustration to reach a level where they look more ridiculous than the people who caused the mess that they are protesting against. This will serve only to damage the ‘freedom’ cause.

This political class will only be reached and influenced by what they consider to be a tangible threat to their chances at the next General Election.

Seeking to become a threat is itself not enough in any way. A threat will never go far enough.

A commitment to the end result and creating a movement that is fully equipped with a universal approach to public policy that addresses the causes of all societies problems is the only way to go forward and make the post-Coronavirus World work well and equitably for us all.

There must be a wholesale approach to addressing the situation as it is. There must be a willingness and commitment to the end result that is not distracted or derailed by anything or any event that appears to get in the way. Otherwise, these very wily operators will find a way to remain in place.

Boris, Sunak, the political culture behind them and the entire Establishment they represent must fall if it is we and not they who are in place to dictate the ‘new normal’ once the reset starts to form.
