4 years and nearly there

It's our independence day again, our 4th. But still our mandate given and confirmed again and again hasn't been delivered fully.

Still things are moving in the right direction, despite all.

Its worth taking a moment to remember the peoples greatest victory over the establishment.

That wonderful morning of the 24th - I hope I never forget it.

It shows what we can do if we refuse to be bullied and down hearted.

The Lib Dem suicide mission

So the report is out, and the Lib Dems are congratulating themselves on being the sort of party that washes its dirty linen in public.

But here the thing - the road crash they had in 2019's general election was entirely predictable. Indeed their, at the time arch opponents knew it.

The revoke message was fundamentally anti-democratic. It could only have lead to enteral civil war in UK politics ( indeed it might have lead to more direct action - as politics would have been shown to be a busted flush on the method to achieve change front ).

It ignored basic political reality. 1/3 Lib Dem voters voted Leave in 2016. Did they think they were going to get them back by continually insulting their judgement, intelligence, and indeed their country ?

How did they think a general election would go when they were 1/3 of their core vote down ?

And their literature, the tonnes of literature,  all had the same extremist message.

Dio you know why the other parties didn't panic when almost a leaftet a day from the Lib Dems was dropping through letter boxes ( by the way - much of it by paid delivery - how can the figures really add up there ? ) ? It because everyone else could see the mistake the yellow party were making.

As well as the extremist anti-democratic anti-British message came the nagging Scottish super superior wifie from the Highlands. Yes it was going to be Jo Swinson's govt, with Jo Swinson's super ideas.

Now I know this isn't popular, but women don't always take kindly to the bossie class swot type character telling them what to do, especially if she's younger ( reminding everyone of their relative failure ), pretty but preaching bossie feminism.

Frankly the Lib Dems did well to keep 11 MPs, and at least lost the one who lead them into the valley of electoral death.

What is the point of the Lib Dems ? Anyone know ?

Waiting for the cough

I haven't blogged on Covid-19 as I think there's enough material out there.

I was one of those people who saw this coming from some distance, mostly thanks to the company I work for getting very concerned about this in late Jan, early Feb. They know what they are talking about and whilst people were still watching spokespeople on TV explaining not to worry and the seasonal flu killed lots of people anyway I was taking advantage of Tesco's 2 for 1 offers on canned food ( yes they were running them then. )

There's a lot in the media now about China being less than straight, and this all being a surprise, but you know if you looked you could see this coming a mile off. And I did. My initial anxiety was in Jan / Feb. I emailed relatives to warn them, knowing that this was going to get the chicken liken type jokes back - but hey they are family ( and yes they ignored me ).

Lock down has been weird and normal. Work carries on as before.

But now the next phase is coming, that part where you get to take your turn on the mix between the national bad luck lottery and Russian Roulette. Its not clear how many chambers on the Covid-19 gun are loaded, but when you hear the chamber rotating you know the hammer's next and the rest will be beyond your help.

Its the same for everyone, and the country is behaving very well indeed.

My wife has stepped back to a local hospital, as everyone has to do their part. Its not Covid-19, but the staff don't wear masks and they do get close. 

That far sighted company I work for has started wondering about the return to work, and whisper it, they are thinking masks all round. 

They are also talking staff reductions.

The economic news is dire - and being at home doesn't really expose the full enormity of what is going on. But the food that gets delivered ( told you I was prepared ) comes from somewhere, and has to be paid with by work that others want from me. That looks in question ....

But this is not what has me up tonight - its my wife just coughed and had a slight sore throat before going to bed .... 

Others have faced their time in the trenches or on long convoys and you just have to face up to the possibilities - accept the risk and take your turn. Today's personal concerns are nothing on sitting in a light bomb shelter in the early 1940's.

There's far worse out there ( we daren't even think about some of the nations of the world ).

Its the small hours ....

The lie of the People's Vote

Next week the campaign to keep the people of the United Kingdom enslaved in the European Union will hold its next rally.

Many middle class people will attend, some my friends ( and they still will be afterwards ).

But I don't think many will be aware of what is going on or its potential consequences were the movement they have been liked to and co-opted into supporting succeeds.

Lets be clear - there can't be a second referendum that's fair.

This is why its the EU's favourite trick. They know that the people tire, and turnout drops, when their voting is futile. They know all those people who went to the polling station for the first time in 40 years, will lack the self confidence to go back.

Its worked in Ireland, the Netherlands, Denmark - they think it will work here.

In 2016 those who wanted our country back had to deal with every main political party, except UKIP either tacitly supporting Remain or campaigning directly for it.

The BBC may have tried to give equal air time - something they have of course picked up a lot of stick for - but that didn't counter the decades of pro-Brussels propaganda - or for that matter the point that most BBC employees wanted remain.

Companies and foreign merchant banks funded the campaign and afterwards never used tax rules were used to punish those who funded Leave ( never remain ) and a whole series of vexatious and false investigations were launched to harass Leave supporters.

Since the referendum the key newspapers that supported Leave have mostly been taken over by Remain supporters ( Daily Mail - editor replaced with remain fanatic, Daily Express - purchased by the Mirror, the Standard - a vengeful George Osborn's new job ). Its like they were preparing to make sure if the EU punishment referendum came no one would be there to stand against them.

And then came the lawyers. The laws you thought applied - guess what they didn't. Always they were interpreted to favour remain. Article 50 - it turned out could be revoked ( even though everyone knew it couldn't before the referendum result )..

In politics a general election occurred where remain MPs lied about supporting their manifestos, then they betrayed their country by forcing through the surrender act. Indeed Lib Dem MEPs campaigned against any deal with a letter.

The speaker of the House of Commons overrode the advice he received and allowed rebels to take control of the parliamentary business, hardly bothering to conceal his own radical anti UK independence views.

Do you think anyone is going to accept another vote after this ?

How do you think those who think their country has been stolen from them by liars and oath breakers are going to respond ?

Do you think there will never be a govt elected that will just declare UDI and leave the EU without any negotiation ?

You are in denial, but more dangerously you are sowing the wind ...

Its quite clear this is just about power - if remainers actually believed their own arguments then the inevitable upset from leaving the EU would soon force our reapplication.

But its not that you fear is it ? Its shame, for everyone's sake, you lack the personal integrity to understand what you should fear.

As things unwrap

It may be that terminal damage has already been done to the Conservative party and the stall they are in is unrecoverable.

There is an assumption that Boris will be elected and then the leavers will return. But that may not happen as :

1) Boris will assume he has a mate u
In all cases Brexiters will not forgive the Conservative party

Theresa May may soon no longer be at the controls, but perhaps the damage is done.

On the edge

Those who have passed the selection criteria to become MPs look like they are planning on rebelling against democracy.

It looks like they are willing to stand on manifestos that day one thing then do the exact opposite when elected. ( 80% of those elected to partially did so on manifestos permitting Brexit - including leaving both the customs Union and single market. )

All in the name of almost preferring making our country a slave region of the anti-national and anti-democratic European Union.

I doubt their will be rioting in the streets. But there will be consequences - and they will be long lasting and some of them will be unexpected.

Imagine a blank swan event like to London Riots ( how quickly we have forgotten them ). Or the fuel protests. Next time the majority of the population will have a deep seated hatred of elite and establishment and could side en mass with whatever passes as the rebellion.

How have the elite managed to keep control ? By having control over the selection process of MPs - of all parties.  The elite links with the legal establishment have been key here, as have the links with finance. Both those protected professions should expect trouble in a occupied Britain.

By the way I think if the EU has any legal hold over the UK after March 29 th then we should start talking about an occupation and those who impotent that as collaborators.

The elite think they have an option to put us plebs back in our box and cancel Brexit. It is a dangerous error of judgement.

We stand on the edge of a whole load of trouble.

Boycott should be considered

In today's Sunday Mail there is a story that civil servants are 'wargaming' a second referendum. Though judging by the story they seem to be wargaming how to achieve a particular result.

A lot of thought has gone into creating the current mess and impasse that is being used to try to sabotage Brexit.

And a lot of thought ( by many in paid employment using their opinion groups, focus groups and marketing talents paid for by shadowy foreign powers ) has gone into a second referendum, by those for which this is a mechanism to stop the UK regaining its independence.

Its time that those who still love our country and what it to have a future, and thought we had secured that future on June 23rd 2016, started thinking through what we will do if we are presented with the standard EU solution to keep voting until the 'right' result can be obtained.

We should consider boycotting the whole process.

The EU side has been rolling the pitch for this punishment vote for quite some time. Editors of national newspapers have been replaced. Those who donated to the Leave referendum have been punished by HM Treasury, those who lead the Remain campaign honoured.

In truth no one will accept any more referendi on this issue unless significant time has passed and what was voted for the first time has had a chance to be enacted.

The punishment referendum ( please lets stop using the focus group cooked up terms the rich elite has paid to deceive people with ) would be the end of democracy as a way to achieve anything in our country. The next step for patriots has to be, in those circumstances, to make the case that what we are being subjected to is a sham - where we lose every time, and the days of being passive trusting subjects who trust in a cross on a bit of paper can achieve anything that goes against the will of the powerful ruling elite will be over.

Its time to at least start thinking about how to act in those circumstances, perhaps doing a bit of 'wargaming' of our own.

Rule by consent is getting dangerously thin

I don't know if you have been following the new on the arrest and subsequent imprisoning of Tommy Robinson, but it looks bad.

There are cases made for why Tommy Robinson deserves what has happened - and these have been made only today as reporting restriction have been lifted - see The Secret Barrister, who sadly ruins their case with their thinly veiled bigotry.

But equally there are very disturbing elements to this case. The police look bad, the courts look bad. The idea that the police are targeting individuals to silence them is now an accepted opinion in a far larger part of the population than many comfortable middle class liberals appreciate. ( The online petition to free Tommy Robinson is now just short of half a million signatures).

Every time people here that diversity is more important than the massacre with knives on our streets - support for the establishment drops. What you say - no one is saying that ? We'll you need to consider that is what people are hearing. Think of today's announcement about cyclists in London being too middle class and white ( pretty much the same type of announcement gets in the headlines on what seems like every day, all year - with just the category being targeted changed ).

Maybe by diversity the people who make pronouncements mean inclusion and evidence of fair life chances playing out, but what many are hearing is racist anti-white anti-male relentless bigotry that targets them personally.

And all this is before we get to the wilful refusal to implement Brexit by the ruling elite.

The police are losing their support, the state is losing legitimacy, and rule of law may not much longer enjoying common support from the people.

I don't know how much of this is appreciated by middle class Guardian readers, but they would do well to try to understand - because this sort of disengagement could lead to very sudden and painful realignment.

Liberals take Robert Peston as your example- don't wait to be ashamed of being out of touch with millions of people because you live in your own cosy bubble.

The generous of England has been to adjust and adapt, not to let the fabric of society snap. Lets keep that going...

It was always about Freedom

The #Remoaner attempts to reverse and redefine the UK's secession from the European Union have been constant, aggressive and very well financed.

The initial tactics were the usual delegitimatising ones - specifically the knee jerk attempt to use racism and to misrepresent one line used on a bus as an excuse for saying the referendum was under false pretences. ( There is a mountain of material that shows various figures here - debates on Net vs Gross and the usual spectrum of views all aired during the referendum which shows this to be a weak and pointless argument. But of course its purpose isn't to win by logic but to give emotionally challenged Remainers and excuse to turn anti-democratic 5th columnist for the EU ).

We had the attempts to lie about what was said about the Single Market and Customs Union. This smear campaign carried on even after video evidence of both Remain and leave campaigners stating that we would do so.

Any of course there has been all the elite bigoted hate used against those who vote to get their country back. 

Who knows in 2018 will deliver - the elite has no shame and no conscience. They will try to get away with everything they can. But the one thing they are determined not to do is learn.

For the first time in years I purchased the Christmas edition of The Economist. I had been a subscriber for about 25 years, but cancelled when the utter bias and brain-dead bigotry of that magazine against the United Kingdom and it's right to have a functioning democracy became unbearable.

In this edition there is an interesting article on Deep Springs University in the US - where students have to work as well as study. What they find is giving responsibility to students changes their atrtitudes. They run the University also - and are inherently more mature ( and conservative ) as a result.

It doesn't occur to The Economist that the same principles apply to nations. A nation denied the responsibility of self government becomes infantalised and loses its self confidence.

As Charles Moore put it in the Telegraph on 30th Dec
    One purpose of the European Union is to ensure that it makes little difference who runs the government of a member state: the real power is elsewhere. Remainers like that. Leavers don’t.
Taking back control was always the most powerful message and mission of the Leave campaign, and whilst the revitalising of Parliament is giving #Remoaners the ironic opportunity to use that power to destroy our freedom and country it doesn't remove the fundamental point of the Leave patriots.

It has always been about freedom - and the beneficial effect it has on our society.
