Absolute control

New Labour, Old Labour, Tories, LibDems, ConDems ... and now UKIP. Different label stuck onto the same beast. Power-mad control freaks (the... politicians) with no real grasp on anything that can be perceived as not involving self-interest or ideology. Ineptness? Doubtful, but a definite plan with an objective?


Lack of any sense of personal responsibility. A politician by nature will distort the truth to 'spin' and communicate the story that is desirable. Accurate? Probably not. In fact, almost certainly not. It is still (sadly, but predictably) safest to assume that a politician's explanation of a situation will be inaccurate and designed to misdirect. Or, simply an alternative way of stating a version of their truth (and reading it from a script - DA). To all intents and purposes, the same thing. However, the politician is only the visible front end that drives the machine. The push from behind is the anonymous and faceless monster really in charge. The controlling element that attempts to make everything work for the controller at the expense of the controlled. Nasty. Wicked.

  • It should be obvious by now how the 'government-in-waiting' (not in power) panders to the electorate with attractive-sounding promises that always come before the delivery of the sucker-punch (opposition -> power). The only certainty is that change will be for the worse: to the electorate. One government out the next government in to simply pile on the pressure and misery and control. And without a break.
  • There are no 'sides', just the 'haves' and the 'have nots'. It's all illusion to cover up and misrepresent. Political 'spin' demonstrates that misrepresentation is not necessarily telling a lie. Just not providing all the truth (or any of it! - DA).

  • NB. (Crudely):
Democrat = Labour
Republican = Conservative

The short-term thinking of (any) government is government of the day by the day. Tomorrow it's another government. Somebody else's mess to sort out? Not quite: the 'mess' that's created is the illusion. One mess gone, but another bigger and worse mess left in its place. And not really recognised as being a worse mess. At best only a different one. Actually, the first mess is still there, but buried beneath another one or just mixed up. Spun and stirred.

What one label leaves another welcomingly inherits

Thinking in longer-terms, the creation of a better and cheaper work-force means more profits to the employers. And with mergers and takeovers happening everywhere is clearly (transparently) moving towards a single employer. The invention of the 'middle rich' to draw a curtain over the ever widening gap between the richer-rich and the poorer-poor.

Sadly, those with the vision to see the future (Environmentalists, Greenpeace) who look to the survival of the Human Race are ignored. Like the wrongly-labelled conspiracy theorists. It's a wakeup call to the incumbants of planet Earth. The Earth will recover after a few thousand years without that parasite called the sentient human.

The housing market has been allowed to rocket in price (not value). Look at some of the crap buildings being constructed: maximum cost and minimum quality so everybody makes a shedload of money except the purchaser. Then tax at 40% any inheritance from the sale. The tories will not remove this tax. Nobody will. It's too profitable.

Currently at over £2,000,000,000 (£1 billion is £1000 million - it always looks less when the zeros are removed). Incidentally, look at debt in the UK which runs into £trillions. A £trillion = £1000,000,000,000 = £1000 billion = £1 million million. Sounds much more realistic.

The UK is technically bankcrupt, of course. You just have to admire Gordon Brown's ableness. Well, so the 'spin' goes. If you're dumb enough to believe it.


'best Chancellor we've ever had'

Spin again.

Shadow Chancellor, George Osborne, has indicated that: "I'd like lower taxes."

Always listen to what is actually said and read what is written. There's psychology at work. Working on your intelligence. Be aware of that. This is politics. It's child's play really.

Osborne is NOT saying lower taxes will ever happen. It's a simple implication without foundation. He simply says he'd "like" them lower. Not tricky or underhand, just typical politico-speak.

Bring in cheap labour and price the housing market out of reach. The way this has already backfired is that the future homegrown generations of this country have also been so disadvantaged that they will seek work in another country.


Trap the students here by making them debtors. Can't leave the UK to work until the debt in this country is paid off. This will also keep salaries down and let the debt continue. Cheap educated people on hand along with cheap and, possibly, non-educated migrants.

It's truly
paradoxical: the 'intelligent' human causes the annihilation of self while all other species have enabled life to be at one with the host.
