The world lost a great man today.

Immigration is good.

An exhaustive, comprehensive study was commissioned by the UK govt on the impact of immigration before and after Brexit. They appear to be reluctant to release the findings, here they are;

New analysis by the Centre for Economic Performance

A reduction in immigration from the European Union (EU) following a vote for Brexit would not lead to any improvement in living standards for those born in the UK. Cuts in EU immigration would not offset the big fall in UK living standards caused by the reduction in trade and investment that would result from Brexit. 

The researchers highlight the empirical evidence showing conclusively that EU immigration has not had significantly adverse effects on average employment, wages, inequality or public services at the local level for people born in the UK. Falls in average real wages of UK-born workers are more closely associated with the biggest economic crash for more than 80 years. 

Our new evidence shows that the areas of the UK with large increases in EU immigration did not suffer greater falls in the jobs and pay of UK-born workers. The big falls in wages after 2008 are due to the global financial crisis and a weak economic recovery, not to immigration. 

There is also little effect of EU immigration on inequality through reducing the pay and jobs of less skilled UK workers. Changes in wages and joblessness for less skilled UK-born workers show little correlation with changes in EU immigration. 

EU immigrants pay more in taxes than they use public services and therefore they help to reduce the budget deficit. Immigrants do not have a negative effect on local services such as education, health or social housing; nor do they have any effect on social instability as indicated by crime rates.

End of Empire.

The British budget today is Nero  fiddling whilst Rome burns! The British Empire died 70 years ago, as it should have, as all empires hopefully have.We have taken years to deal with that, and as previous generations who fought in the world wars not for the empire but for peace and freedom have left us, the generations they left behind are intent on destroying our nation completely by insisting that we are still an empire, still Great. We are not Great, we are not special, there are many nations that have overtaken us, that have found their place in the modern world. Our chance at working together with our neighbours is slipping away, our chance to still hold our own in a a much bigger world. The idea that nations are lining up to make deals with us was always ridiculous, we are now a joke and the vultures are circling. This budget has laid clear how our obstinance and self importance will now run us into the ground, how Rule Brittania will make us a second rate and poor, pitiful nation. Those that pedalled the lies, those that promised what they knew to be untrue, those are the traitors, those should be tried for treason.
Those in great power must ensure that those below them remain in great unrest and upheaval and always believe that an 'enemy' has taken away an imaginary period of wealth and stability. Make the people believe that others are responsible , as long as those in great power continue to have great power.

Watch Nero fiddle, as you burn.

2017. The world we live in is a scary place, and if you believe that foreign powers have not embraced both technology, and social media to infiltrate the west then you are a fool,  just watch Trump and Farage and know that they succeeded, they have divided the US, they have divided the UK from Europe. They have in effect divided the Allies, NATO and the UN. When our children suffer through foreign aggression it will be our fault.

Are we oppressed?

When we look back at history, people have always been oppressed, it (is)was normal. Even today most nations continue to oppress their people, we choose to ignore it. The freedom we had in the west seems to have been a mirage, a blip in history. For those of us growing up in post war Britain, where conscription ended, and also  capital punishment, where workers' rights were fought for and won, where freedom of religion, sexuality and speech became human rights, where gender equality was strived for, and racism was apparently going to be a thing of the past. That 'window of time' when nationalism was a dirty word.

Was it all just a dream, were we lulled into a false sense of hope, of liberalism, of enlightenment? Is the reality, is the norm, oppression and a shift of power and money only to the rich?

At which point have all the cultures and societies before us realised they were oppressed? The ones who were violently and suddenly oppressed and enslaved are under no illusions, but almost every society in history was eventually oppressed if not enslaved.

My question is....At what point does a society realise it is oppressed?

My answer is..... Probably too late!

Face up to reality

Big Brother, The Only Way is Essex, Love Island, and all of the fucking 'reality' shows are slowly destroying our culture. The people in these things are not real, but they are held up to our youth as the way to success. Take the men, none of them have body hair, or spots, or moles, or bellies, and not a brain between them, just psychopaths, sociopaths and narcissists. The women are even worse. Go to any British pub or club and everyone has an alien orange glow, weird fucking hair, and the most awful fucking clothes, a country of plastic Barbies and Kens and that is the adults, what has this done to teenagers? Vajazzles, boob jobs, fake tan, and affected speech, and the belief that it's normal to be rude and stupid, and to insult and bully those that aren't. This disease has made it to the core of society, and that narcissism has led to a belief that British people are better than others and a dislike of anybody foreign or anybody normal. It is a disease that has affected the core of Britishness, of course not only Britain, but its effects have become mainstream in British culture. Is your child, grandchild being bullied in school because they don't conform to what the TV tells them to do? Do you and your kids spend every evening watching this shite, and EastEnders and Coronation Street? That is what Britain is teaching its youth, the future generations. I spit on your culture, it disgusts me, it shames me, it doesn't make me proud to be British. What happened to our moral compass, our politeness, our stiff upper lip, our pride? The answer is in the TV schedules.

Theresa May, you lost. Resign.

The bottom line; The British election system is a 'first past the post' system(We voted against proportional representation just a few years ago in 2011). A winning government must have 51% of the seats, the Tories don't. 58, yes 58% of voters voted against the Tories.
That is not a victory.
Resign and call a new election.
Do the right and decent thing. You have not won under the rules of our parliamentary system.
Resign resign resign.

The end of the monarchy

Let us hope that this will be the speech Prince Charles will make at his 'coronation';

Richard II; "Ay, no; no, ay; for I must nothing be;
Therefore no no, for I resign to thee.
Now mark me, how I will undo myself;
I give this heavy weight from off my head
And this unwieldy sceptre from my hand,
The pride of kingly sway from out my heart;
With mine own tears I wash away my balm,
With mine own hands I give away my crown,
With mine own tongue deny my sacred state,
With mine own breath release all duty's rites:
All pomp and majesty I do forswear;
My manors, rents, revenues I forego;
My acts, decrees, and statutes I deny:
God pardon all oaths that are broke to me!
God keep all vows unbroke that swear to thee!
Make me, that nothing have, with nothing grieved,
And thou with all pleased, that hast all achieved!
Long mayst thou live in Richard's seat to sit,
And soon lie Richard in an earthly pit! "

(Richard II, William Shakespeare)
