A Wise Man Once Said…

There’s been a bit of a personal meltdown here in Muswell Hill Towers in the past week so I’m going to put my blog out of its misery and close it rather than keep it on hold until the good times roll.  Blogs are like children, they need nurturing and mustn’t be left to fend for themselves.

If you’re incredibly bored one evening you can check the archives to find out about smart meters, report-back computers in cars, the infrastructure, the cameras, the censorship, the arming of the police, what you can grow in your garden, what you can give to relatives and friends, what’s approved and what isn’t, and what’s under global attack. If you’re not already aware, you can read about how they did it and how we ended up with a one-party State that takes direction from an unelected foreign entity.  You’ll also find this:

from Dmitry Orlov and there’s more HERE.

There are many good, independent blogs around; if I could give you only one piece of advice it would be to put on your thinking cap and read them (you’ll find a good selection in the sidebar). You may not like the language but there’s a truth in them that you won’t find in the mainstream media.

When I began this blog I was startled to discover how behind the times the msm actually is, and how much they cover up with half-truths. The msm are enablers so if they tell you something, double-check it for yourself. If you feel the need to contribute to their comments sections: don’t. They’re always filtered and moderated, no matter what they say, so it’s best to start your own blog. If you haven’t checked through the Essential Links, it’s worth doing that too. There’s so much information on the internet that you only need to check into the msm now and then to see what they’re reporting and how out of sync they are.

It gives me no pleasure to see what I’ve been predicting come about, and I’m nobody – I’m just someone who took the time to look at the political and financial world, check out sources and use my own judgement.  You can do it too.

For our government and for the EU:

Well, that’s it from me.  Take care, thank you for reading and commenting and, DV,  I’ll see you on the other side of the barricade.

Oh yes, the Wise Man.  He said: “So long, and thanks for all the fish”.

What If?

It’s happening in front of our eyes. The mechanisms are in place in the form of loosely-worded, ever-changing and open to interpretation ‘laws’, regulations and directives. Thanks to the doctrine of spin, state education, a public sector that comprises more than 50% employment and a lickspittle media, we’re truly fracked.

What if Nigel Farage is our Ron Paul?

A Week of Cockwaffle

I used to apply the tag “cockwafflers extraordinaires” to any post mentioning EU hubris but I’ve been lax lately, mainly because there are so many of them.

TFIF is all I can say after a week like this. We’re living in a time of lies and spin; a time of half-truths and evasions.

Apparently, it’s Children in Need Night tonight. I used to donate but no longer bother since I discovered how much of the funds go in admin and consultants.  I’d rather give it in the form of “Oh, I’ve cooked too much” or “I’ve bought too much” to the oldster next door rather than see it wasted on admin and consultants. It’s spectacular to realise that, despite what we’re going through, this programme will probably raise another £25m or so. We do it year after year, on top of our own charitable commitments, yet nothing ever improves for those countries and their children.

Globalised finance, globalised corporations, globalised consumerism, globalised big pharma, globalised government, globalised poverty, globalised need.

Like I said, TFIF. I’ll leave you with this wonderful summation of today’s events:

There is something about Germany that brings out in the British media some of its least desirable characteristics. And when you have in Volker Kauder, the CDU’s parliamentary leader a stage Hun with all the sensitivity of a plank, and an IQ to match two short versions, you have the stage set for a perfect storm…

… But at least The Boy has been given a hearing, given his brief moment in the limelight, in a carefully stage-managed press conference, and sent packing, where he can prattle in his own time, to his own venal media, without wasting any more of everyone else’s time.

As the post points out, it’s nothing new. The fight isn’t only against the EU it’s against the placemen and the system of governance that’s evolved in the past six decades.

I said to Spidey that being in a state of hope is a natural human condition: we hope the sun rises in the morning, that the moon shines at night and that we’re free to raise and take care of our families without undue interference.   So far, only the first two hopes have proved steadfast.  I don’t know who said the following quote but he/she was right:

Government has what it takes to take all you have

And they will.  TFIF never seemed so hollow because Monday always comes around.

Those Washed-Up, Cried-Out, Spied-On Stasi Blues

Yep, I’ve been to the doctor and he said that’s definitely what I’m suffering from. He wrote me a prescription and said to go back in a few weeks if my symptoms hadn’t eased. What he prescribed was “a weekly dose of riots and a change of governance.”

Interestingly, he didn’t advise a change of government; he thought that swapping one bloc of raging authoritarian job-for-life politicos for another wouldn’t solve the problem. In short, ELECTIONS DON’T WORK ANY MORE. They used to, once upon a time. The country rubbed by after the war, we put up with austerity and rationing, mainly because of the sop of the NHS and child benefit payments, but the country has changed beyond recognition now. Now, everyone has the right to be offended but not to freedom of expression; everyone is equal in the eyes of the legislature, unless you’re ‘one of them’ and can pay or circumvent the system; everyone is lectured, molly-coddled, chivvied and harassed into being a citizen worthy of The Big Society; we’re all in it together.

My @rse.

If I thought one of my neighbours was spying on me I’d report them to the police for harassment.

THIS upset me so much this morning when I read it. How could they? How could they turn State informer? And they’re not even being paid. I hope they’re first ‘onto the shuvvell’ so they can join their heroes who first adopted this technique.

Work from home:  Easy Income

But it’s alright; we’re in safe hands and can go back to sleep:

A Home Office spokesman said: “The first duty of the state is the protection of its citizens, but this should never be an excuse for the government to intrude into people’s private lives.

“This is why we are changing the law to restore common sense and prevent local authorities using surveillance for trivial offences.”

If you believe that, phone me, I’ve got a bridge for sale.

Here’s one of the ‘essential links’ in the sidebar: Big Brother Watch.

Roughly one in fifty adults collaborated with the Stasi in East Germany:

Frau Merkel was born in West Germany but grew up and was educated in East Germany. I’ve no idea why her parents moved; perhaps it’s a story worth telling on par with the Milibands, whose Polish grandfather packed up and left for Russia where he fought in the Red Army before admitting defeat and defecting to Belgium (and thence onwards to Britain albeit leaving his wife and children behind – it was for the good of the cause, comrades).

Just to tip everything nicely over the edge, here’s an archive of East German propaganda. Spot the similarities.

Why The Surprise?


It’s being reported that the European Union proposes a common criminal justice system to sit with the European Arrest Warrant. Hallelujah! At last the message is getting through.

The EU wants to set criminal offences and minimum sentences and, according to Vivian Reding, a 2005 ruling from the ECJ that the EU can impose its own criminal offences “where it is essential in order to facilitate the enforcement of EU law”, together with the Lisbon Treaty, support the implementation of the policy.  (Unless you’re a lawyer who specialises in European Law, you’ll be hard-pressed to find the specific case).

Our own criminal justice system has shifted perceptibly towards the European Napoleonic Code and away from our own Common Law (trial without jury, double jeopardy are two examples). When we warned of it we were told that we were, well, you know what they called us so I won’t repeat it.

I don’t think anything can be any clearer. We have been subverted; it’s an inside job and we have been taken over with the approval of our own elected MPs and government Ministers. Our national sovereignty has gone and we are at the whim of selected politicos and bureaucrats in the EU who use taxation against us.

What is EU law?

“The main goal of the EU is the progressive integration of Member States’ economic and political systems and the establishment of a single market based on the free movement of goods, people, money and services.

To this end, its Member States cede part of their sovereignty under the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) which empowers the EU institutions to adopt laws.

These laws (regulations, directives and decisions) take precedence over national law and are binding on national authorities. The EU also issues non-binding instruments, such as recommendations and opinions, as well as rules governing how EU institutions and programmes work, etc.”

There’s really not much more to be said – I’ve done with the jaw-jaw and incitement to war-war.  From the moment I began blogging I thought that people would quickly pick up on what was happening and there’d be an outcry, but they didn’t and I’m still waiting. It comes to something when I’d rather talk to a plumber about fixing a leak than see what the EU is doing now or what directives our own traitorous government is nodding through. Two/three years ago I’d talk about manning the barricades, well, I’ve still got the ropey old mattress if someone else can give me a lift to Brussels, but I can be patient.

Anarchists & Lefties

The news hasn’t been new for a long time now, which is why blogging is becoming more intermittent.; the days of 9/10 posts are long gone.  If you ever take up blogging you’ll end up with bookmarked pages as long as your arm and then some – each and every one to be checked out each and every day.   Eventually you’ll find that they’re reporting on something you blogged about the day before, the week before, or, as with the Lisbon Treaty, a year or two before.   I’m not sure why I keep the blog going really, except that the most enjoyable part is the feedback and links.  With that in mind, here are some questions:

Why are the revolting types all Lefties? I’m repulsed about what’s happening in the world as much as the next man but I’m not a dreadlocked crusty, a student or a member of the UAF/SWP. If I call myself ‘right-wing’ will everyone think I’m an Anders Breivik in the making? If I say that Britain and, in particular, England, is crammed to bursting point and there should be a moratorium on immigration, am I a fascist? If I see poverty and suffering in the world and try to alleviate it on a personal level, am I a bleeding-heart Liberal?  If I say the NHS is not fit for purpose, am I a dyed-in-the-wool reactionary, harking back to the days of Shaftesbury and Barnardo and taking bread from the mouths of the poor?

I’m an anarchist in that I’d like to see the overthrow of the current regimes in the UK, EU and UN ( 🙂 not a big ask), the regimes that have been leading us by the nose via their helpmeets in the media and putting us, our families and our productivity, as collateral against bankers’ debts.

On last night’s Newsnight it was said, twice, that “capitalism has failed”, “capitalism is at fault” but no-one was there to rebut those statements. It was just me, sitting alone in front of the tv, tearing out my hair, biting my fingernails and throwing the cat at the screen. Capitalism hasn’t failed because the system we’ve been living under isn’t capitalism; it’s Third Way interventionism, aka communitarianism, a form of socialism.  Capitalism is being regulated by socialists and that’s why our financial system is failing.

State education is wrong – a nice idea but wrong. A State-defined national curriculum for schools is wrong, wrong, wrong. The Tories are as guilty as Labour for degrading our education system, once the finest in the world. We used to produce free-thinkers and innovators, mechanics and engineers but now we languish in international league tables and spew out children only fit for riot-fodder because they can barely read, write or understand English.

The State has done its job of divide and conquer well. It’s turned out an unthinking section of society with no interest in politics beyond smash ‘n’ grab, and a separate, cultured, stream that’s steeped in Lefty learning and propaganda. In the middle are the great ignored – those who write to MPs about a local injustice, those who have never seen a policeman except to ask directions or the time of day, those who live by society’s rules and then learn, too late, that it was all a lie and a scam.  In fifty years’ time it will begin all over again and those who live by decent standards will still be the losers.
