Called it

leave a comment »

Many times (and at my work), I have stated that there should be a no exceptions total ban on the use of social media by anyone under the age of 18, if not, 21.

And I predicted that this would happen.

The exploitation of young people by social media, junk food and other businesses has always been an issue, but I guess if you’re running a company with a spreadsheet, it just doesn’t matter does it?

The English xenophobia towards grand vision

leave a comment »

Think back to the debate over Heathrow Runway 3. Boris Johnston suggested a grand creative alternative, a new airport in the Thames Estuary. Whilst it may have hurt the local economy to Heathrow (hardly a lovely place anyway, who wants to live in a groggy semi under a flight path?), his alternative offered the following benefits:

  1. Safer – if an aircraft does crash during landing or take off, it has a greater chance of doing so over the sea, avoiding casualties on the ground.
  2. Better for the locals – If aircraft land and take off over the sea – as per some at San Francisco and other water born airports –  then locals have less noise pollution to contend with.
  3. Employment – The number of jobs created with a new build airport would be huge.
  4. Innovation – As well as conventional aircraft, the new airport could be designed to cope with forthcoming autonomous flying and road transport that could deliver locally.
  5. Improved transport links – Ever driven to Heathrow? Exactly! Much room for improvement.

But nope, the old school execs who run BA and the Airports Authority are only interested in short term benefits to themselves and the ‘city’ – whatever that means.

Now we move onto more immediate matters, Boris’s recent essay on how he would grab Brexit by the horns and prove how innovative England can be when it tries, without relying on others. He wasn’t doing this to be political, he is like Trump, just wants to get things done and harness the good in people, in this case industrious industrialists and the like. Boris and Donald see the glass as half full, a very American attitude.

Boris is the real deal, he rides his bike to do his bit for the environment, and is an educated historian, so knows what he is talking about. He’s less the politician, more the intellectual. (He and Trump could benefit from each other’s skills being each are weak in specific areas.)

But no, the dull grey suited lot want to hold Boris back, so England will remain this somewhat backwards dull nation it is that becomes apparent when you visit the USA or Spain or France where their infrastructure is modern, inspiring and makes you proud to be a national. Our current PM is only good for one thing, reaction: More surveillance after terror, less subsidies for solar panels because it upsets her Saudi paymasters.

What a waste of English genius.

Now I know why it happened

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
– Edmund Burke

Has never meant so much as today.

Yesterday, I had to sit in my car seething not just because whilst in the middle of the countryside approx 25 miles from the nearest town did I see a council poster with “Smile! You’re on CCTV” on it (yes, I took a photo!), but I heard the PM of Sweden denounce the untactful but non political President Trump tell it like it is regarding North Korea.

In 1939 we were warned that Jews and others were being repressed and worse in Germany, and there have been other incidences where people have been treated badly by repressive regimes run by individuals with serious personal psychological problems (not much different really from the precious snowflakes in society today) who take out their frustrations on others after somehow gaining power, whether by family inheritance (Sadam etc) or manipulative speech making (Hitler).

So, the useless UN and it’s members think that threatening force won’t achieve anything. Oh really? Let me tell you that from my XX years on this planet, on a professional and social level, if someone is inclined to have nefarious intent (as opposed to being slightly crazy), they will welcome your hugs of goodness, and then stab you in the back.

More very very dangerous and undemocratic social engineering from people who are paid using your taxes!

So glad I don’t pay the licence fee.

Distraction strategy

leave a comment »

In previous posts I have mentioned the strategy of the powers that be (George Soros, most Western governments, large corporations who enrich the former two) to ensure that young people in particular take an interest in and discuss non issues, such as gender (why now?), balanced hiring practises (over choosing someone GOOD at the job) and so on. Here, we have an example of a subject so petty in it’s importance, one is lost for words. The media are wasting time discussing an issue with random people, stirring up trouble, whilst the climate is out of control and there is a risk of war with North Korea and so on.

How many people, even strictest vegans, have a problem with even TOUCHING meat based products? None! They just don’t eat them, so why does it matter what money is made from?

Fight back club: Prioritise so those likely to gain from a distracted populace cannot win.

Go for it Noel!

What this poor chap has had to go through is an example of capitalism out of control. The banks are not the only ones, car insurance companies are as bad. So, you are in a no fault accident (that means, someone else hit you due to their negligence), well, you’ll have to pay DOUBLE the premium when you renew your policy, no matter which provider you go through. Want to change your address, a few keystrokes on a computer over the phone? You’ll pay for the privilege. And so on. The reason this issue with car insurance is unacceptable is because it is law to insure your car, so unlike signing up for a mobile phone contract, you have no option, and the insurance companies know it.

Fight banks club: Re banks, not sure, government crack down? Mrs May? Some Christian values applied please? Re insurance companies, there needs to be a major class action lawsuit and perhaps public refused to insure their vehicles until the CARtels are busted.
