Oh what possibly could go wrong? Let’s see, another ‘hip’ street brand for the knife killers of London to worship and wear as they knife through the heart another victim.

‘US waiting to make a trade deal with the UK’

No. What he means is, America would like to sell us:

Poor quality chlorinated chicken to make up for poor animal husbandry

Sugary low quality confectionery, in particular chocolate

Hormone ridden beef

And so on.

For all the cons of the EU, it’s desire to preserve the quality of our food and animal welfare cannot be ignored.

Update – Shame on my follower(s) for not spotting the since corrected typo above.

Second that autonomous technology was first discussed I sensed that the dystopian EU, backed by ultra left wing jobsworths and corporations who will profit from the technology, would take away our ability to apply self discipline and experience freedom.

Driving is exceptionally liberating and teaches responsibility. This automation will make it harder to accelerate out of a dangerous situation or overtake a slow moving vehicle and is being introduced because the police are too lazy to go after bad drivers and the authorities want full control of you, you and even you, there at the back!

Fight back club: Buy an EV now so you can be clean and free before it’s too late.

Here is a comment from below this Daily Telegraph article on the subject:
stellios mavrakis 28 March 2019

A small detail. It is about total control of the populace putting aside elimination of all privacy and the ability of hidden faceless unaccountable individuals being able to track your every move the real reason is that hidden away in the technology is the ability of the so called ‘authorities’ to tap your number plate in and immobilise your vehicle.

So you may say ‘OK if you are a serious criminal and the police think they have your vehicle’ ect and the usual banal ‘if you’ve done nothing wrong etc but the local council say chasing parking tickets or council tax arrears ect ect? because they will know where you are press a button and you car will be immobilised until you have paid. I bet they can’t wait. And then of course in a state of emergency the Government could immobilize any or all vehicles as they chose.

People need to wake up to the dystopian future that technology is creating instead of being dazzled and deluded into thinking that it will make a ‘better world’ and don’t even start me a cashless society. Think it through. Put these two little inevitable technological scenarios together and it gives a Government absolute power over every individual which will be abused

Sky News: Crack cocaine use ‘skyrockets’ as drug becomes ‘fashionable’

Liberals and property developers, you have this on your hands:

Selling off school playgrounds so kids no longer have endorphins to provide a natural high

Banning spanking of children by parents (now Wales as of yesterday) so youth no longer have discipline installed boundaries

General acceptance of a degenerate society by all parties including our weak visionless Prime Minister

Parents have too much power over schools and contest discipline by ‘old school’ teachers

Police focus on honest unpolitically correct tweets, rather than law enforcement

Promotion of rap and other junk music to the young, instead of the sorts of easier to sing and dance to blues, rock and other music

Etc

Reap, sow!

The prejudice of climate change

Cyclone survivors rescued by helicopter

As you read this the ultra backwards thinking US and UK governments are about to build new oil platforms in the Atlantic and a brand new coal mine in Cumbria.

Yet as predicted a while back by scientists, initially, the destabilising climate mainly effects the poor nations whose people lack the power to protest.

Bare that in mind when you next use carbon fuel, for it’s killing by proxy.

But I thought women were best at the top? This is not the only example of such PC nonsense backfiring.

If she was so brilliant, why don’t B&Q (who sell a lot of very useful stuff) accept contactless payments, Apple Pay etc, something other successful retailers adopted years ago? And why have they replaced quality respected brands like Stanley, Bosch etc with their own brand, whose quality has no history?

#BigPharma

leave a comment »

Watch this and cringe. No mention that if kids are fed healthy low carb high vitamin diets from BIRTH, encouraged to play outside in team sports and so on, they don’t become hyper active, because they will be too exhausted. Further, endorphins are a superb antipote to short term depression.

But #bigpharma LOVES to profit (‘pop a pill for every ill’) from the break down of common sense and woe anyone (like me) who points this out. I look forward to the thought police turning up at my door for publishing ‘hate’. (Which is a liberal translation for ‘hard facts’.)

I remember learning in my marketing studies in California how the owners of the Hot Pockets(tm) brand snack encouraged American mothers to stop giving their kids apples with their packed lunch, and instead, well, aforementioned sugary simple carbs junk.

Don’t forget people, the same company directors who own the pharmaceutical companies play golf with the guys who run the ‘food’ conglomerates.

One feeds the other!

Am really tired of these manipulative videos from the BBC, CNN etc that are attempts to make all this normal. These are left wing entities who hate large corporations pandering to said corporations!

Am sure the silent majority are seething over this (but being silent, won’t be heard), but I would like to know where the police are re the following incidents and of course many similar that others are waiting on:

Mugging of myself in London over 10 years ago, with theft of £800 of property and injury to myself

Theft or destruction of five locked bicycles in Oxford by violent drug pushers or users, or both

And so on.

Sky News: Oldham man arrested over social media comment about NZ attack

leave a comment »

http://news.sky.com/story/oldham-man-arrested-over-social-media-comment-about-nz-attack-11667669

When I was at school, we constantly sang songs about the Germans re WW2. “Hitler only has one b***…” Etc. Not to mention many jokes about the Irish.

I don’t recall any arrests.

The police today are out of order, breaching all free speech laws, whilst allowing knife crime, burglaries, shop lifting*, dangerous driving** etc to go unchecked.

*We never had security guards in our Tesco not long ago.

**That’s reckless racing through built up areas, not accidentally doing 60 in a 50 zone on the money grabbing M27 ‘road works’ or 25 in a 20 zone in Oxford.

We are so close to the Demolition Man/1984 reality.

Damned tragic, and not just because of what her family have already been through. Why was a vulnerable young lady on social media with all the pressure this puts on body and mind?

Fact Facebook/Instagram, Google (YouTube) etc are profiting off the naivety of young people world wide who should be outside doing physical hobbies with a small selection of REAL friends. True followers, if you will.

I tell you what useless abusive privacy invasive councillors, why don’t you take away the ugly 3 or 4 plastic bins that litter our once pretty nation with their complicated inconsistent rubbish separation rules and replace them with ONE steel bin like we used to have and separate the stuff yourselves at the plan manually or using robots with image processing software?

That is what you are paid to do you lazy money grabbing jobsworths!

I have never understood how a human being can stoop so low that they can forage through another person’s garbage. I guess we are all wired differently.

I saw this coming

leave a comment »

The move towards a very very restrictive inconvenient way of life for us all continues, with ASDA banning kitchen knives. So, the criminals will still get hold of knives anyway, but the consumer will now have to go through hoops to buy them for well meaning uses, such as slicing onions.

I remember a few years ago being in John Lewis, not to buy anything ‘potentially’ dangerous, just an every day item. The young lady (approx 19?) behind the counter had to remove the security tag, which involved using a pair of loaded AR-15s, sorry (typo!), scissors. Despite a long line of people behind me, she had to push the buzzer and call her manager, because she was not allowed to use the scissors!

Since I started VA a good 15 years ago, (actually started ‘blogging’ via email over 20 years ago from Silicon Valley), I have warned that the greatest threat to humanity (beyond out of control climate change, food shortages etc), is our slow gradual move towards a dystopia where humour, common sense, family values/discipline, the natural order of things etc is replaced by hundreds of technology monitored and implemented laws that will do nothing to improve the lives of decent people, and likewise, do nothing to reduce crime or other issues. What such a repressive way of life does do is make it far harder for people to protest or counter the status quo because such laws make us weak and feeble and overburdened with ‘red tape’ is we never have time to actually live and achieve anything.

Fight back club: Need that knife for the kitchen? Find one online. Well done government, you just lost your local kitchen retailer more business when they are already suffering thanks to council parking fees! Oh, and to cut down on crime, focus on strong families, tactile & science based skills education and discipline, else you’ll be piddling on the fire and looking for quick fix solutions that don’t work.

Amber Rudd apolgises for calling Diane Abbott a ‘coloured woman’ https://mol.im/a/6782569 via http://dailym.ai/android

Meanwhile arctic tundras are thawing releasing dangerous levels of methane into the atmosphere. As I said, intellectually stumped humourless snowflakes will be the death of us all.

Just in case the DM doesn’t publish my comment, here it is (in all it’s grammatically flawed glory)…

Over the last few years I have alas avoided associating with people who are of the self described social snowflake unit that is the so called repressed ‘bullied’ oh woe is me minority. You know, the ones with state funded flats that are ‘too small for my 5 kids’ or enjoy pride marches or are given jobs to fulfill a quota or have people arrested at their front door in front of their kids for a witty tweet – because I have no desire to tread on eggshells with all the stress and awkward such relationships entail.

How we got here

leave a comment »

A few friends have suggested I write a book to summarise my views on the state of the world and how to fix it. Thing is, am too busy with work and such, but I may try to write something short and self publish. Title, as above, and of course, it will be a 2+2=4 affair, no politically correctness, nor, at the other end of the spectrum, financially motivated incentive, just a raw fact based reference. Further, I have pondered offering a financial reward to anyone who can disprove via 3 or more external validated sources anything in said publication. This will not just be an incentive for me to be accurate (I base my views on science, not self serving concepts invented by humans) and force opponents to fight their case.

A quick example would be how and why the current knife crime epidemic is occurring. As many of us predicted, the UK let the genie out of the bottle and has no clue how to get it back in.

Simples! A mix of lenient liberal values (that do NOT work, and never have done) + (ironically!) corporate greed. One feeds the other, and that is the crux of it all! More in the ‘book’, if I get time.
