Corporate Greed, Corrupt Politicians and the NHS

Those of us who are not informed about the critical issues of our time can never know what is true and what not, and what of what is true has been exaggerated. However, although the possibility of political bias and the inevitable long-term self-interest of the participants must be borne in mind, the claims made in this video seem disturbingly plausible. Some of them are alarming

Health is a devolved issue and this documentary makes clear that it describes what is happening to NHS England only and not Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales. No wonder they won't allow an English Parliament with powers at least equal to that of Scotland. An English Parliament would stop this and perhaps much else dead.

Flexcit: a Nice Concise Explanation of a Very Complicated Process

I remember watching, as a boy, a programme in which the grandiose building schemes of the great landed aristocrats of the eighteenth century were presented and examined. One of the points made was that the movement away from the strictly formal gardens of the renaissance towards the informal parks that still surround baroque palaces and Palladian mansions required a shift to long-term thinking and the avenues of mature indigenous trees lining the approaches to those houses were planned and planted by men who knew they were never to see them in their full glory. That's rather what Richard North is doing in the video above. Unfortunately, we live in the age of the instant garden make-over and far too many voluble and opinionated people think that all we need do is grub up the knot garden and all will automatically be beautiful and verdant again.

I don't think an exit referendum can be won but if we have any chance at all of getting out Flexcit is it, and if the referendum is lost 'it' provides a solid base for the long march to the next one, should it ever come.

As an aside, it is disappointing to see so few under sixty present. I suppose that a yearning for freedom cannot grow in the hearts of the young until they have suffered decades of brutal oppression, as in eastern Europe before the iron curtain was hacked down. However, we haven't the time for a slow awakening: we are moving rapidly into an age in which technology makes any form of dissent impossible because it will literally be unthinkable.

Lizz Truss: God Help Us.

This, believe it or not, is an MP and a cabinet minister:

Can you see any evidence of even the trace of a brain at work there?  Nor can I.  Christ almighty and God help us.

As an aside, the handclapping seemed a little thin as she appeared to confuse the 'British apple' with the English.  Is she that stupid or simply that ambitious?

As a further aside, why do Oxford PPEs seem to lead to 'success' for so many over-qualified mediocrities?  Mightn't she be more productive fobbing off customers at Tesco as her Fuhrer did at Carlton Television?

Fingers Crossed.

Today's the day. I remember dancing hysterically around my flat in York, where it is still legal, as far as I am aware, to shoot a Scot, when they voted for their 'ane pairlyment'. Here's to independence for England.

Christmas Comes Early

Richard North's book The Great Deception, written jointly with Christopher Booker, has been on my reading wish list for some time and was likely to remain there for a good deal longer, without a lottery win or a highly unlikely inheritance. Just this morning I thought that I would buy it as soon as funds permit, which is unlikely in the immediate future. Imagine my delight on finding, when I looked at EU Referendum this evening, that he's put the book on-line as a free PDF - pro0f, if proof were needed, that there really is a Father Christmas. I offer my grateful thanks to Dr North for the present.

A Joke

I've just read this in a comment on YouTube: Q. Do you know why they bury lawyers eighteen feet deep? A. It's because deep down they're good people. It gave me a chortle and I thought I'd share it. The comment can be read here, which video recounts a barely credible story.

On 'Social Justice'

I think that explains 'social justice' adequately.

The Sweet Sound of Migrant Voices

Is it 'racist' to wish that they were having their argument on some Polish or other East European street and not in our 'green and pleasant land'?

Of course, the correct way to deal with idiots sent by Capita on behalf of the BBC and claiming to represent a trademark is simply to shut the door on them, and not to annoy one's neighbours by arguing loudly at one's door.
