Boris Johnson has called on Brits to crowdfund up to £500,000 so Big Ben can bong at the moment of Brexit .The Prime Minister revealed he is drawing up plans to “bung a bob” for Parliament’s famous bell to ring out at 11pm on January 31.Scores of Tory MPs have been calling for the bell to toll to celebrate the moment Britain legally becomes the first nation to leave the EU.
As a rider to what I am about to say, I would like you first to realise that I have been anti- Common Market since we joined in 1975. Had I been allowed to vote in the referendum, I would have voted against it. I have always viewed the Common Market….EEC… E.U. as a proto-Fascist anti- democratic organisation. When a Government rules by diktat and not by fair and open democratic debate, it is by nature a Fascist Regime. This has been the nature of the Common Market since it’s inception and the European Parliament has no more legitimacy than the old politburo of the Soviet era.
Given my opinions as stated above, you may feel that I would be pro-brexit? Nothing could be further than the truth! I do not wish to retire into Little England, evoking the blitz and the sound of Big Ben, to ride a wave of nostalgia for age that never existed. The thought of crowd funding the banging of the bell appals me, a piece of theatrical mummery akin to the Nuremberg Rallies. However, this is just a flummery, a mass hysteria designed to make those who cry, Get Brexit Done! feel vindicated.
My fear is that once the chicanery has taken place and Brexit is done, the massed throng of people who look for the wrong targets to blame, will find out that they have been fooled, again, and will look for even more ludicrous targets to blame… Who will become our JUDEN? Will it be English born Muslims? Naturalised East Europeans? Handicapped children? There was an awful story a few months back of a right-wing Nazi type screaming abuse at a handicapped 5 year old girl, because he regarded her as a waste of resources…
The echoes of the 1930’s are ringing louder than the fucking Big Ben Bell!
The real target for change should not be the leaving of the E.U., if we had stayed inside and argued for reform with the other countries who are beginning to see it’s faults, rather than declaring unilateral UDI (unilateral declaration of Independence) and blowing our economy with all the alacrity of a foot-stamping five year old, we could create an organisation, which could redress the real problems inherent in late Capitalism.
The basic tenets of the Right’s doyen, Adam Smith, is that Capital when free, will self- regulate,
Adam Smith was an 18th-century philosopher renowned as the father of modern economics and a major proponent of laissez-faire economic policies. In his first book, “The Theory of Moral Sentiments,” Smith proposed the idea of an invisible hand—the tendency of free markets to regulate themselves by means of competition, supply and demand, and self-interest. Smith is also known for his theory of compensating wage differentials, meaning that dangerous or undesirable jobs tend to pay higher wages to attract workers to these positions. But he is most famous for his 1776 book, “An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations.” Read on to learn about how this Scottish philosopher argued against mercantilism to become the father of modern free trade and the creator of the concept now known as the GDP.
once it reaches the level of international Cabal,it cannot and will not self-regulate. The simplistic mechanism is no longer fit for purpose. If you have Corporations who basically control all of the flow of information, such as Google, or You Tube, or Disney or who ever… The Truth is basically and fundamentally lost!
If the Tory Party can lie in 88% of their facebook adverts and then hide in a freezer when asked questions… and yet you still win by a landslide, then there is no hope for this Capitalist adventure.
Remember every civilisation crashes and burns, and it all starts when the wealthy oligarchs make a grab for more money and more power!
It took a thousand years for this civilisation to arise from the death of the last one.
I fear for everyone. But not myself. I have lived my life. I fear for my children and Grandchildren, I fear for your children and Grandchildren… When Capital fall for the final time and it will, the chaos will give the strong the power to stop playing lip service to morality, fairness, and compassion, and reveal their true nature which is red in tooth and claw. God help us all, especially those deluded by racist propaganda.
