Blowhard President

He is deffo schizoid,bipolar,unhinged,unstable,demented,fascistic - and the North Korean leader is not much better! The whole world knows the USA is a paper tiger that cannot win wars and has not done so since WW2 and so the present intemperate bluster of Trump's is fooling nobody except perhaps himself.

So we are in a parlous state with two psycho regimes that need to be taken down namely NKorea and Iran and no chance whatsoever that will happen. I am wondeingr what Trump has got to do or fail to do before his supporters finally admit they were wrong in backing him. Right now it seems he has a free pass for life.

Privatisation of Political Parties

Forcing citizens to finance any political party whose philosophy and ideology is perceived by them to be antithetical and inimical to their deeply held values and philosophy is tyrannical. It has created a tax funded duopoly of Conservative and Labour and it violates the principle of free speech and the right of the citizen  not to have to finance the promotion and promulgation of ideas that potentially or directly threaten their individual rights and liberties.

For this reason all political parties should receive no tax funded contributions and each individual citizen should financially support the respective political party that most represents their views and ideology and there should be no monetary cap on how much they donate as at present. The latter notion is pure egalitarianism implicitly saying that every party should receive the same financial amount and no one should be able to give more than anyone else which is a gross violation of free speech.

Are EU Having a Laugh?

You can take Britain out of the EU but you cannot take the EU out of Britain -  not at least if you transfer the thousands of burdensome Kafkaesque EU laws into British law and call it a Repeal Bill which is precisely what the government is proceeding to do today. Can Britain be said to have left the EU at all if it places every jot and tittle of EU law onto its statute books? Only in a pigs eye.

The argument for doing this insane thing is as weak as it is specious -namely that not to transfer all the thousands of EU laws into British law would create a 'legal black hole'.I have yet to hear an explanation of what this means. That an absence of  laws that cripple business and give employees faux rights will cast everyone into a black hole? Maybe it will cast lawyers into a black hole? That is almost an argument for it in itself.

No, the only explanation why the British State wishes to visit the thousands of EU laws on the UK is because it shares the same statist agendas as the EU and intends to emulate it  in an en bloc cut and paste adoption of its non objective statist laws.

Bonfire of the Regulatory State

As I have pointed out previously State regulation of business trade and industry is defacto nationalization of them in a creeping underhand implicit unstated form. When the State is not strangling business in mountains of regulation it is launching expensive tax funded governmental research from 'independent' personages - witness the report on Uber's business model from the Blairite Leftist Matthew Taylor -  with the express and sole purpose of using such 'expert' advice to initiate yet more anti business legislation in this case forcing Uber to pay the same onerous benefits to their employees as traditional employers, effectively destroying the whole gig economy in the process.

On top of this invasive creeping nationalisation of the whole economy the State plunders the so called private sector with punitive fines for poor services,trains running late etc. This is another gross violation of property rights and is further reason why the State should have no role in policing or regulating business trade and industry. The State should no more be able to fine rail companies for running a poor service than they should be able to fine the local newsagent for failing to provide sufficient amounts of newspapers or oranges to their customers.

Free Housing

The takeaway from Grenfell is the imperative to privatise all social housing. The Sovietisation of housing created the tragedy and the State should not be in the housing business. Its only business is to protect  its citizens from harm done to them via force or fraud. It should therfor provide police, the courts and armed forces and these should be paid for by voluntary taxation.Every other service should be delivered via the free market unregulated and un taxed by the State.

Public Sector Menace

The plague of public sector militancy has never been properly addressed and now that it is dealing with a weakened vulnerable minority Conservative party it is flexing its muscles and making more  unreasonable pay rise demands. A weakened compromised government is about to cave in to such demands when what it should be doing is quite the opposite.

Public sector unions should be banned as their wage demands can bankrupt the country and they can hold it to ransom with threats of strikes which because their jobs are in a State monopoly it is difficult to resist.

The Austerity Delusion

The age of austerity is dead. Mr Government Creosote is going to deny himself a wafer-thin mint! The money printing press is going to crank up the works and produce yet more magic money to spend on our bloated public services (that word public again).

If the country were an individual it would have been made bankrupt a long time ago but even with national debt 86% of Gdp we've got to bring austerity to an end.

Until we go to a system of private free banking,abolish the Bank of England and have a separation of finance and State the latter will continue printing  money and the Ponzi scheme of public spending will roll on.

Murdoch Murder( No) Mystery

The mooted Cma  investigation into whether Rupert Murdoch should be allowed to own all off his own company (!) Sky by buying up the remaining shares   is a direct full frontal government assault on free speech and private property and as usual has been met with total acquiescence by the media and commentators.

The Cma should be abolished along with all the other so called independent non departmental government bodies whose implicit intent is to destroy what's left of the free market and strangle business by hedging it around with restrictive,arbitrary non objective laws, couched in deliberately ill defined,vague language  making it impossible for business to function,never knowing from one day to the next whether it will fall foul of one of the bureaurcracy's subjective rules and stipulations.

The overall intent of such invasive government agencies is to punish the most successful and innovative businesses by forcing them to be broken up to allow 'fair' competition and access to the less competent and innovative businesses and is thus an example of egalitarian ideology enforced by the State.

Google V EU

The EU's commission's announcement earlier this week that it is fining Google £2 billion for unfair practices is another obscene illustration of how the institution is the very antithesis of neo liberal as some on the Left bizarely assert and that it is on the contrary a semi socialist protectionist block wholly hostile to entrepreneurship and capitalism.

If Trump wants to really put 'America first' he would announce that the US will  no longer recognise the EU as a legitimate legislative body that can impose such criminal fines on US companies and grant Google legal immunity from any actions of the Commission.

Google should announce that it is withdrawing its operations from the EU also.

The 1967 Abortion

The Abortion Act of 1967 was a legal evasion in that it allowed abortion on certain conditions including the assent of two registered doctors and if the life of the mother could be proved to be in jeopardy by giving birth, rather than asserting what it should have, namely the right of the mother to her own body and to choose whether to have an abortion or not. By this evasion morality was circumvented in favour of expediency re the above mentioned exemptions.

So abortion has remained a criminal offence punishable by jail and the recent move to decriminalise it is way over due. The fact that the present law has been used by millions of women to have an abortion is beside the point as the fundamental principle of the right of the woman to her own body and what to do with it ie the protection of her individual rights should haven been unequivocally asserted as inalienable, a fundamental principle  not be evaded or obfuscated by the weasel fudge  of legal loopholes.

For the same reason all drugs should be de criminalised but again a compromised evasive solution has been adopted where those with clinical conditions are allowed access to certain drugs.

The purpose and motive behind both legal positions is clearly the State's deliberate intention to  deny the principle of individual rights and replace them with subjective arbitrary rules and conditions totally at the mercy of their favour  ie special privileges, not rights.

The Social Disease

Whenever a word is prefixed by the word 'social' alarm bells should start ringing as some fraud or logical sleight of hand is invariably about to be perpetrated. 'A Social Attitude survey has found' is definitely a case in point. I have already discussed collectivist words and phrases that go under the radar such a 'public opinion' etc and the collectivist word  'social' is another.

The media this morning is full of a Public Attitude Survey that reveals that a sizeable proportion of those asked would like to see taxes raised to pay for public services. Leaving aside the dodgy methodology of such surveys and the rigged leading questions with their false premises - (ie that more money given to poorly run State services will improve them) there is an obvious solution for those who feel that they are not being taxed sufficiently,namely, they can contact the Inland Revenue service and request that it take  more tax from them.

Of course such people would protest vigorously at such a suggestion as what they are really doing in such a case is virtue signalling  and what they want is for other people to pay more taxes as well.

Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation

Nick Robinson twice prevented Grant Schapps from critiquing Corbyn  on the Today programme this morning revealing his true red colours and blowing for the trillionth time the BBC's absurd, fantastically false claim to be politically neutral. The organization clearly believes it is beyond the reach of any sanctions as every time the Conservatives moot such a step there are howls about political interference in the Public Service Broadcaster from the liberal establishment and it thus has total immunity -and what's more knows it and acts accordingly as witness Robinson's brazen  behaviour.

Myth of the 'Right Wing Press'

In order to nail the obvious Left canard of the 'Right wing press' one only has to do a simple balance sheet of British newspapers. In the Right corner we have the Telegraph, Daily Mail and  Daily Express. In the Left corner we have the Guardian,the Daily Mirror,  the Observer and by my reckoning the Independent but even if that is rejected there is the Morning Star which last time I checked was selling in Smiths! So another Left lie exposed.

I noticed recently that our local newspaper has been taken over by the Mirror group so we are now treated to endless lefty propaganda columns by the likes of novelist, environmentalist and Corbinist Julie Wassemer and all the letters seem to be written by lefties. Whatever else this is it is defintely not indicative of a 'right wing press'.

On the other hand we definitely do  have a Left wing broadcasting media totally controlled and regulated by the State. Just watch and listen to any BBC political output with Question Time being the most blatant illustration with its 'self selected' left wing audience.

Can Conservatism Survive?

All the while Blairism ruled the Labour party pragmatic Conservatism could trundle along winning the odd election and still be just about a viable force in British politics but with the emergence and triumph of the hard left Corbyn socialism of Labour it is looking decidedly threadbare,weak,pallid,insipid  compromised and downright shifty by comparison.

 Post mid 90's there was no discernible need for a Thatcher,the socialist dragons had all been slayed, or so it was thought,and it remained merely a managerial task of the tories to run the country efficaciously.Ideology was out the window,buried along with history and post Blair the tories had practically become the unofficial Blairite party. It was the future once.

Then  Labour changed its rules and opened up membership to the general public at £5 a time and it opened the floodgates for all the old hitherto alienated Labour voters  and activists to pile in,swell Labour's ranks exponentially and allow Corbyn to come back from the political dead and take over the party.

Are there lessons for the tories to be learned here? I would say absolutely. It should take a leaf out of Labour's book and do the exact same thing. Membership would double and it would be considerably to the right of the tory MPs, in a cabinet where currently and staggeringly 20 of the 27 members are Remainers (which roughly reflects the stark fact that 75% of all MPs in the House of Commons are Remainers).

This policy if adopted would put some lead in the tories pencil but ultimately I believe it is a victim of its pragmatism which was there from the very start and its pragmatic chickens are only now just coming home to roost. Its decline  and moral disintegration is inoperable and a new party of a liberal,libertarian bent will be the only real and credible counter to Labour's statist authoritarian advance. The only question remaining is  will there even be enough time for such a movement to emerge for Corbynism has taken everyone by surprise including myself and I am not so sure or confident that there will be.

Unidentified Collectivist Terms in the Political Baggage Dept

There are everyday words and phrases that go under the radar below conscious awareness that we should really identify and pay attention to   in order to understand the motivation of those politicians and influencers who use them on a daily basis thus enabling us to  be protected and immune from their intended effects.

Some examples are: the public, public mood, public anger,public opinion, public consciousness,the people, the will of the people, society,the local community,the many not the few - and it should be noted that all of these have something in common in that they are collectivist terms and they are invariably articulated by statist politicians when justifying yet another power grab by the state in the form of regulation,tax increases and  state creep in general.Some statist politicians occasionally break cover and refer explicitly to the 'collective consciousness' which only they can somehow mystically divine and articulate.

As Thatcher said there is no such thing as society (although Rand said it before her in a 60's essay) and the claim has been  vehemently repudiated by statists ever since but has never been invalidated simply by virtue of the fact that it is a statement of the obvious.

It is clear why politicians would want to deploy such collectivist terms when proposing yet another piece of invasive state legislation but it would be enough for people to simply identify them when they are invoked and  reject them.

Religious People Say the Dumbest Things( Part 300)

1.  Roy Masters  the leader of the self styled Fhu cult within a cult once said, to paraphrase, God made sex exciting for man because he knew that otherwise he  would fall down on the job of perpetuating the human race. Note that having children is not seen as what  it is, namely  a profoundly  selfish act done for the benefit of the parents but as an altruistic self sacrificing collectivistic duty and chore of man to replenish the human  race. Note also that there is no reference in the Bible to this motivation  of God's cited by Masters and it is just yet another bizarre concoction created by him out of thin air. (As there are so many fantastic unbelievable events and claims documented in the Good Book  one would not have thought there was any need to invent yet more but there we are).

2. Another gem from Roy as his craven supporters love to call him: Christians have to be burried so that if they are brought back from the dead they are more or less intact whereas if they were cremated how could they be reconstructed . Youwhat?! The God that can perform mind blowing miracles too many to enumerate here is going to have problems reconstituting a pile of ashes back to its former human form and state? Really? Having swallowed a camel you are going to strain at a gnat? In the words of the late great Christopher Hitchens, don't waste my time with such nonsense!

Not Bringing it All Back Home

Why is the UK repatriating all Brussels regulations to the British parliament -did we not vote to leave to get away from all its Byzantines rules and regulations in the first place? If they are they are to be duplicated and replicated here at home  one wonders what the point of the exercise of freeing ourselves from Brussels was all about.

Way too much has been made of the complicated negotiations in store for the UK chiefly by those who want us to stay but it is only complicated if we play the EU's game which is about frustrating our intention to have a clean break from its oppressive rule by bogging us down in endless negotiations that lead nowhere.Cut the Gordian knot on the other hand, acknowledge openly and publicly that the EU is not a good faith negotiator and we are simple leaving and the thing will be done.

Maj Serves up Maybot's Thin Gruel

It was a squalid document from a crippled Maybot, impudently promising a rise in the minimum wage, an outrageous statist construct to begin with, representing a grievous state intrusion into the market,violating the individual rights of both employers and employees -the former to the inalienable freedom to run their business as they see fit and the latter to the right to work for whatever sum they agree with their employer - and the continued craven obedience to the UN dictat that the UK must spend 0.7% of GDP on the international welfare programme commonly known as the Black Hole of Foreign Aid.

The desultory speech lasted a mere 10 minutes reflecting the tory's total humiliating general election rout, and was bereft of the promise for more grammar schools -about the only good think Maybot came up with ever and the necessary reforms of the social care crisis.

Insipid Blairite toryism may limp on for a season but the Marxist vultures are circling above poised to pick its rotting flesh and cranking up for the Communist horror show to come.

Day of Rage and Envy

McDonnel,the smiling asssassin, master of the carefully cultivated innocent disengenuous look has ordered his fascist left supporters onto the streets in their millions today to intimidate and attempt to bring the government down.When the Labour party was purging itself of its hard left members in the 80's McDonnel and Corbyn clearly slipped through the net with the catastrophic result that what was a lunatic fringe within the Labour party has become the main controlling body of it and we now face a defacto British Communist party within spitting distance of power.

I drew parallells in a recent post between the fascist Left and its Orwellian policing of language through political correctness and the fascist Islamists with their censoring of dissent and hatred and intolerance of freedom of speech but another thing they both have in common is their understanding that they face no moral intellectual opposition anywhere,that the liberal establishment is corrupt and decadent and if you push consistently over time it will fold and collapse. Enough intimidation and terroristic acts playing  the long game and victory will be had.

We consequently face the twin terrors of Islamism and the fascist Left on the march - but crucially, no Thatcher in sight. This is the peril we confront naked and defenceless,intellectually and morally disarmed by decades of betrayal and subversion by the intellectuals and a conservative party long given over to amoral cynical pragmatism.

Other Foot, Meet Shoe

Suddenly the 'Muslim Community has found its voice,become passionate in unequivocally denouncing terrorism ,muslims are queueing up to get in front of a tv screen denouncing terrorism - terrorism directed at them that is.Now they are vocal,animated,outraged.Before,when it was Islamic terrorism against non muslims -nothing,silence complcit,passivity,silence. Now they want to tell us all about how they are a persecuted minority,everyone's got it it in for them,they are victims,neoNazis are round every corner targeting them. And the BBC and other self loathing liberal broadcasting outfits can't get enough of it. Compare and contrast.

Why is the Left so Sympatico with Islam?

With its political correctness of enforced speech codes,intolerance of opposition,hostility to free speech,illiberal silencing of dissenters,no platforming,boycotting,theories of micro aggression,safe spaces,trigger warnings and Orwellian policing of thoughts and ideas etc the thin skinned fascist left bears an uncanny resemblance to the thin skinned illiberal intolerant islamists and together they pose a serious threat to freedom and liberty in the West.

Howard Jacobson: A Study in Pure Evil

In BBC's R4 Points of View Howard Jacobson likened Brexiteers to Nazis and Remainers to French resistance fighters inWW2. As if this was not obscene and unconscionable enough he went on to compound the moral outrage by claiming those who won the referendum and were telling the losers to 'get over it' were like those who said survivors of the Holocaust and Auschwitz should get over it and seek closure. It was a case he continued of 'sore winners' re the Leavers. No Mr Jacobson the reason the Leavers are so mad at smug liberals like you is the entitlement culture you embody that makes you think the result should be reversed and it should liberal establishment business as usual.The contempt for democracy that such liberals exhibit belies the idea that they believe in it and reveals that their defence of is dependent upon them prevailing politically and if they are rejected by the majority they are quite prepared to throw their democracy out the window.This is the shocking reveleation that the referendum result has revealed.

That the BBC saw fit to air Jacobson's rant is indicative of the cancerous state of liberal thought in the early 21st century.
