Democracy By the Many still Ignored By the Few. Dementia, Denial, Delusions and The Don´t Knows.THOUGHTS ON THE PRESENT DISCONTENTS

A couple of hours sleep and some clarity.

It was clear from the starting Pistol Fired By Brenda From Bristol, ( “Oh Not Another One “ ) through to The PM Programme that Signalled the end of the last day of Campaigning with a Collage of Brenda´s Words delivered by Actors in Various Regional Accents, immediately before the Pips for the Six O´Clock News (SeeVideo), That For the BBC,  as with the Independent newspaper, & Universally in fact in the Dead Tree and dinosaur Broadcast Media, that we plebs, were encouraged to not engage, to be too dumb to pay attention and that we were to leave the complications of having; our pockets picked by the few, our National Health service hollowed out and crippled ready for Bailing out by fire sale under the Naylor report  , our Grand Parents Mugged by dementia Tax, Our Children forced into cooky cutter state indoctrination by  “Schooling to the test”. The list of our Grumbles as they saw them, was to be, best left to them. Perhaps they had been a little less attentive than they might be, but we should remain cowed obedient and obsequious ( I have all the evidence but will not present it just yet, it’s all here in this blog this past 6 weeks, they are not of a mind to listen, we must insist!)

Voter turnout is likely to be so low this general election that May’s result will barely be democratic

The Lib Dems have just nine MPs, Labour is in crisis and Ukip is struggling to find a post-Brexit identity – a large proportion of British voters feel disenfranchised; they may never vote for May’s Conservatives, but they can’t easily find another home. They will likely abstain

It feels as if Brenda from Bristol was speaking for everyone when a BBC reporter told her that Theresa May had called a general election for 8 June. “You’re joking?” she exclaimed. “Not another one. Oh for God’s sake, I can’t stand this.”

THOUGHTS ON THE PRESENT DISCONTENTS

“I am not one of those who think that the people are never in the wrong.  They have been so, frequently and outrageously, both in other countries and in this.  But I do say that in all disputes between them and their rulers the presumption is at least upon a par in favour of the people.  Experience may perhaps justify me in going further.  When popular discontents have been very prevalent, it may well be affirmed and supported that there has been generally something found amiss in the constitution or in the conduct of Government.  The people have no interest in disorder.  When they do wrong, it is their error, and not their crime.  But with the governing part of the State it is far otherwise.  They certainly may act ill by design, as well as by mistake.  “Les révolutions qui arrivent dans les grands états ne sont point un effect du hasard, ni du caprice des peuples.  Rien ne révolte les grands d’un royaume comme un Gouvernoment foible et dérangé.  Pour la populace, ce n’est jamais par envie d’attaquer qu’elle se soulève, mais par impatience de souffrir.”  These are the words of a great man, of a Minister of State, and a zealous assertor of Monarchy.  They are applied to the system of favouritism which was adopted by Henry the Third of France, and to the dreadful consequences it produced.  What he says of revolutions is equally true of all great disturbances.  If this presumption in favour of the subjects against the trustees of power be not the more probable, I am sure it is the more comfortable speculation, because it is more easy to change an Administration than to reform a people”.

Election Putting Off The Voters, THOUGHTS ON THE PRESENT DISCONTENTS 

“”As a poet who knew his business, he could not applaud them for a thing which in general estimation was not highly reputable.  Addressing himself to Britain,
“Thy favourites grow not up by fortune’s sport,
Or from the crimes or follies of a Court;
On the firm basis of desert they rise,
From long-tried faith, and friendship’s holy ties.”
The Whigs of those days believed that the only proper method of rising into power was through bard essays of practised friendship and experimented fidelity”.”  (Burke)

The Treatment of we many by those Elite Few is the naked double standard that sees behaviour such as leaving a Three-Year-Old and their siblings without a babysitter in the Algarve, whilst the Grown up and glamorous ones go and have a good time. No discernable blame or responsibility for the consequences of such neglect could ever attach to those chosen few, “the brightest and the best”, who know best and whose motivations and actions are above reproach, A class THAT SEES ITSELF AS ABOVE AND BEYOND THE LAW, The to Big to Fail and to Big to Jail Class. A do as I say and not as I do democracy, or a;  Mrs May Do what I Say, but Do as I say only faith and silence required from you plebs, if I may concentrate on the important issues of State, ( Does my Bum look big in this Philip, The Heels or the Kittens darling, pass another Dalmation this one is spent!)

May, the talking heads tell us, is going to serve and do her duty. David Lammy spins his own theories As they all do, all the Neo-Liberals who practice the love that dares not speak its name! It feels more like being Pissed on Golden Shower Economics not Trickle Down! They have no clue or interest where it would inconvenience them, about what it’s all about. Yvette Cooper, Tom Watson, Crow Pie is on the menu and as with the Tories all the Blue Red and Yellow Neo-Liberals and their  Austerity England, there is simply not enough Crow  Pie to go around, the Establishment has been caught out yet again by its own Hubris and arrogance. If in doubt believe in something says Lynton Crosby, I say when you haven´t a clue shut the fuck up and listen to what you are being told, These Arrogant Bastards think their Shit does not stink, They are not merely smelly they are rancid with squalid corruption and self-conceit, Step aside and we want Our Real leader who knows that as Epictetus taught, “we have two ears and one mouth and should use them in that Proportion. Politics Idol is over!
I wrote about the squalid scrabble for power after the 2010 Pantomime Here.

“The worse of the distractions of my greedy bankers may be yet to come, it would be foolhardy to expect them to begin acting anything like reasonably based on my experiences with them since the crash in 2007. One good thing that has come from it though is a growing interest in the alternatives to the broken western/global economic system the debt money global Monetocracy, the last UK election took place shortly after we move to Sweden I watched in horror at the unbecoming spectacle of the sitting Prime Minister seeking to cling to power and the equally unedifying spectacle of the other contenders scurrying around to get their angle at the trough”.

This is the election of Confirmation Bias, Wishful thinking and denial. Jeremy Paxman wrote a piece in the Financial Times saying we people get the politicians we deserve.( Always Blaming the Victims, Orwell below) That is nonsense and It is yet another self-important conceited elitist Blaming the victims. Our Political Class and our Media Class, Our Technocratic Corporate Class Our Financial Corporate Class the Whole 1 % almost to a man are Lazy, Feckless, EgotisticaL and all legends in their own Trousers or Jimmy Choos, all Style over substance and still they spin, wriggle and spin more sophist mumbo jumbo. Enough already, We have risen like lions, we are many you are few and as Edmund Burke said”.

“When popular discontents have been very prevalent, it may well be affirmed and supported that there has been generally something found amiss in the constitution or in the conduct of Government”. 

Signing off as Andrew Marr drones on ….. and still, they creak along a coalition of the blind deaf ignorant stupid self-conceited, self-important arrogant cock womble Wankerers……. I must stop there are no depths my contempt of this failed Establishment can not plumb, the contempt they deserve are unfathomable.To borrow some Robert Graves,

Not Counting Niggers


George Orwell

Here and there in the book, though not often, there are references to the ‘dependencies’ of the democratic states. ‘Dependencies’ means subject races. It is explained that they are to go on being dependencies, that their resources are to be pooled among the states of the Union, and that their coloured inhabitants will lack the right to vote in Union affairs. Except where the tables of statistics bring it out, one would never for a moment guess what numbers of human beings are involved. India, for instance, which contains more inhabitants than the whole of the ‘fifteen democracies’ put together, gets just a page and a half in Mr Streit’s book, and that merely to explain that as India is not yet fit for self-government the status quo must continue. And here one begins to see what would really be happening if Mr Streit’s scheme were put into operation. The British and French empires, with their six hundred million disenfranchised human beings, would simply be receiving fresh police forces; the huge strength of the USA would be behind the robbery of India and Africa. Mr Streit is letting cats out of bags, but all phrases like ‘Peace Bloc’, ‘Peace Front’, etc contain some such implication; all imply a tightening-up of the existing structure. The unspoken clause is always ‘not counting niggers’. For how can we make a ‘firm stand’ against Hitler if we are simultaneously weakening ourselves at home? In other words, how can we ‘fight Fascism’ except by bolstering up a far vaster injustice?

WE’RE ALL NIGGERS NOW.

“Your music should be abou’ where you’re from an’ the sort o’ people yeh come from.—Say it once, say it loud, I’m black an’ I’m proud …—The Irish are the niggers of Europe, lads.”

Envy is a terrible thing like Jealousy, very destructive.

The system sets up the Beautiful Rich people as role models and then punishes us all for falling short of the impossible standards mythologised in its own propaganda and we are then chastised for not being worthy.
I started my day today doing some reading on the Juxtaposition of Context and Motivation. Kipling’s line in If, you can walk the unforgiving minute and build it back up with broken tools springs to mind(Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build’em up with worn-out tools;)
The way I see it is that almost everybody is a victim here ( even to an extent the complicit and ignorant perpetrators ( forgive them father for they know not what they do.)and The corporations tell us it is all our fault because we demand the lower prices, Cornell west´s quote below points to the caution required in allocating responsibility to victims?
My aim is not to provide excuses for black behaviour or to absolve blacks of personal responsibility. But when the new black conservatives accent black behaviour and responsibility in such a way that the cultural realities of black people are ignored, they are playing a deceptive and dangerous intellectual game with the lives and fortunes of disadvantaged people. We indeed must criticise and condemn immoral acts of black people, but we must do so cognizant of the circumstances into which people are born and under which they live. By overlooking these circumstances, the new black conservatives fall into the trap of blaming black poor people for their predicament. It is imperative to steer a course between the Scylla of environmental determinism and the Charybdis of a blaming-the-victims perspective.

We’re all Niggers now in the brave new world of the European Superstate, all hail Barroso and the other unelected technocratic leaches.
