Save it for protests and demonstrations. It’s been made clear that it’s pointless signing petitions or writing to your MP and even more pointless commenting on online press articles – to mangle a phrase: The Shady’s not for turning.
There’s one thing that might make him change his mind and one thing only: feet on the street. We’ve been pushed and pushed constantly in recent years and despite the fact that this is what tptb want, with the CCA waiting in the wings, I think it’s time we forced them to show their hand. A mass protest is called for – not the piddly 30,000 in Blackpool at the weekend but people from all sections of society, castle or cottage, should make their views known.
It’s not going to happen. Those protesting at the moment protest at the lack of State intervention whereas I’d like one that protests at too much intervention. They say they want more Big Society and Localism but I don’t trust it because it’s an inherent policy of the EU. We’re a mess and completely fragmented, no wonder they laugh at us and our feeble efforts to truly restore power back to the people.
The bottom line is they educate our children and we pay them; we pay for their schemes and policies. We need to find a lawful way to stop paying them and curtail their activities because what they do, they do with our money. Having said that, I feel the damage has already been done.
I suppose the question is, how far down this path do we go and is it worth the price to the individual? The cost will be high, not only in monetary terms: there’s a chance that in the event of major mass unrest we’ll see EUPol on our streets – and they’re armed and immune from prosecution even if a protester dies. But – at least we’d know where we stand, and certainty and truth has to be better than what’s fed to us at the moment.
If, like me, you dip into LBC97.3fm, you can’t fail to notice how many foreign accents there are calling in now compared to previous years. Europeans are entitled to vote in local and European elections in whichever country they reside. We’re f*cked. Sorry, but I can’t put it more succinctly than that. At the risk of repeating myself, having a vote once every 4/5yrs isn’t a sign of democracy; we’ve fallen so far from the concept that we couldn’t recognise it if it bit us.
I won’t bore you with past posts, or maybe I will, depending on my mood*, but the thing is that the signs have been there and been ignored. Can we really blame it on reality tv and a complicit media? If people wanted to know the truth, wouldn’t they have made the effort to find out for themselves?

And here’s Cameron, still doing the hokey-cokey.
There’s an old quote somewhere on the blog and I paraphrase: If there must be conflict, let it be in my lifetime, not my children’s. We ignored it, we condoned it, we enabled it, we should pay and fight.
