Leaders debate part 2

Well the leaders debate on the BBC has come and gone and once again, Nigel Farage clearly stated his position and stuck to it, even in the face of both hostile leaders from the other parties, and to an extent, a hostile audience. Clearly an audience ‘selected’ by the BBC who were more left than right or centre.

What I would like to know is this: why are those two harridans from over their respective borders (Scotland and Wales), included in this debate. The vast majority of the electorate cannot vote for them so why do they not stick to debating within their respective countries. Any inclusion of either SNP or Plaid Cymru MP’s in an English Parliament surely throws up a constitutional problem in that they could be making laws which govern those who have never voted for them. Now I know this has happened for years via the EU but that was wrong and so is this. No-one seems to have raised this question.

My problem with this election, although it will be the  most interesting one we have had for years, is that the country in the end, and by that I mean we the people, will be the losers. If Labour get a minority, and get into bed with either the LibDems or SNP, we will end up with a re-run of 70’s politics. Unions will flex their muscles and control the Labour party as in the past and we will once again end up as a 3rd world country economically. The EU will be allowed to hold sway on every single aspect of our lives and this will no longer even be a shadow of the country I grew up in. Net result, a back-water country full of public servants producing nothing.

If the Conservatives get a minority, the chance are they will get back into bed with the LibDems not UKIP, and will just have another re-run of the last 5 years. Slightly more palatable than a Labour/LibDem pact but not much. Cameron will renege on an EU referendum, especially now that Juncker has told him we can’t have one before 2019. The climate change bollox will be pushed even more because of the LibDems, and we will drive the remaining energy-intensive industries away. Net result, a back-water country full of public servants producing nothing.

There is of course a pattern to all this in that the LibDems will just prostitute themselves to the highest bidder just to be in power. Clegg is a charlatan and a liar.

So the only way to combat the 2 above outcomes is for everyone to get behind UKIP. That way, one of the other parties will have to sit up and take notice. But if they don’t, at least UKIP can form a credible opposition if they have the numbers and at least combat and keep in check the barmy ideas from whoever gets a majority minority. Any right-thinking person in this country, who believes in the sovereignty of this country, in the independence of its people, who believe we should be freed from the EU yoke, and who put country before self, have a duty to vote UKIP.

It’s that simple!

Milliband shows his utter contempt

Most people by now will have either seen in the article in the Sunday Mail, or the various posts on the Blogosphere, regarding Milliband’s latest idea to controll the masses. The so-called leaked document proposes a number of draconian measures to get us all to be ‘healthy’, at least the labour view of healthy.

Labour leader is proposing sweeping new laws to force people to live healthier lives if he wins next year’s General Election.

  • A total ban on the current £300 million sports sponsorship by drinks firms.
  • Minimum alcohol price to stop ‘pre-loading’ by young drinkers.
  • Banning supermarkets from selling drinks near the door, or sweets at the tills.
  • New laws to curb the amount of sugar, fat and salt in food aimed at children – and a 9pm watershed  for TV adverts for unhealthy products that might appeal to youngsters.
  • Lottery cash to build skateboard parks.
  • Aiming to get half the population to take regular exercise within ten years.
  • A goal that children born from next year will be the ‘first smoke free generation’.”
So, in one fell sweep, he aims to bring in USSR-style controls on everything we eat, drink and the ways we enjoy ourselves. A typical Socialist reaction to people enjoying themselves with what is arguably, an ever-decreasing list of ways to enjoy ourselves.
But there’s more. He also proposes to give powers to local police chiefs and town halls to levy a charge on town-centre pubs, to pay for all the extra policing, ambulances and NHS time required to handle the binge-drinkers. No matter that most town centre businesses pay sky-high rates already, let’s hit ’em a bit harder. So a whole lot of other pubs and restaurants will be added to the list of those who went out of business after the smoking ban.
What Milliband and his Socialist cronies don’t seem to get is that any of these measures will not hit the supermarkets and big-business pubs/clubs. They will be able to absorb the extra costs. Those that will go down are the small off-licences, the corner shop selling wine, beer and fags, and the small eateries. More choices will be removed from the high street to just leave those that approved by the state or can afford the extortion payments.
And how the hell do they think that kids born from 2015 will be a smoke-free generation? I am assuming that is smoking tobacco as opposed to cannabis or any other narcotic that is smoked. Cos strangely enough, no-one from the chattering classes ever mentions that the next generation will be ‘drug-free’. And that has a far greater social impact on the nation than smoking tobacco. But of course, most of the current government and opposition have used drugs in the past and think it’s still cool. In fact, judging by the sort of drivel they come out with on a daily basis, they obviously still are.
As far getting the nation healthier, well just look in your own corner, Milliband. Do you think that the following MP’s meet the state-ordained BMI rating?
1. Dianne Abbott
2. Heidi Alexander
3. Graham Allen
4. Ed Balls
5. Anne Begg
6. Gordon Brown
I could go on but you get the picture. They all look like lard-arses. But of course, as with everything Socialist, its a case of ‘not as we do, but as we say’.
And who in the labour party smokes? I am sure they are not a ‘smoke-free’ party.
There are some in the Labour party who are up in arms about this being leaked. I suspect it was leaked deliberately. Leak it out, test the water, see what the reaction is. If it gets a bad press, withdraw and say, ‘just something we were musing over, don’t get exited, nothing to see here, move along’. Then if they ever were to, god help us, regain power, they could trot it out again.
But what I find difficult is that any sane person would even consider having these collection of ideas, and then advocating them as a policy to win an election on. So I can only conclude, if any were needed, this is proof positive of just how mad they are. From their climate-change bollocks, the smoking ban, and now this, they are all completely barking. And all those politicians who have not sort to over-turn any of these measures are also barking. Which doesn’t leave us with much to play with. Only the complete and utter dissolution of Parliament as it now stands, a wholesale rout of the existing MP’s and a completely new start with new ways of thinking. That is the only way forward now. Will it ever happen? Nah, cos too many people in this country are imbecilic enough to believe that some of these policies are right.
So basically, we’re all fucked!

Another blow for Democracy

I see from yesterdays Daily Shriek that the police have advised Cuadrilla to cease operation for now at Balcombe due to the possible arrival of up to 1000 protesters. These protesters have been organised and brought together by the the “No Dash for Gas” group, a bunch of useful idiots who think that the only energy systems that we should be using are renewables. From their page comes the following gems:

“We are facing a climate crisis, economic crisis and social crisis. We want a clean and fair future where people come before profit. Come to share your ideas. Create, imagine, resist. Join us in Balcombe, West Sussex to Reclaim the Power!”

The police, in issuing this advice to Cuadrilla, are not only admitting they don’t want to do their job, but have become complicit with the protest against the fracking at Balcombe. The police should be able to handle both a demonstration and allow Cuadrilla to exercise their lawful right to conduct their business. The police are allowing mob-rule to override their duty to uphold the law. Of course, the Health and Safety of the employees has been used as the excuse, but I suspect it is the H&S of the police which has decided this decision.

But by blaming H&S issues, the police are effectively saying “we cannot guarantee your safety to go about your lawful business”. That, in my mind, puts the police in serious disrepute. The police are employed to protect the safety of the public, whether that be the Cuadrilla employees, the demonstrators, or the residents of Balcombe. It doesn’t matter what side of the fence you sit on fracking, or fossil-fuel energy, the police should do their job. So the green lobby, the antediluvian misfits who want to shove us all into fuel poverty, and any others who want to force their single-issue opinions on the rest of us, can simply threaten to turn up mob-handed and the police will roll over.

I see also that the RSPB have jumped into the fray over Balcombe. They claim fracking will damage the the local bird population and the environment, and anyway, we shouldn’t be pursuing ways to use more fossil fuels. This is monumental hypocrisy from the people who quite happily chop up birds bats and other flying fauna with the wind turbines they insist on erecting at a number of their sites. And don’t protest anymore about other wind turbine proposals, even if they are sighted next to migration routes. I’m sorry, but the country’s energy policy is bugger-all to do with a group who’s remit is to safeguard our avian friends. So RSPB, do what your members pay you for and keep your noses out of politics. The water at Balcombe and all other sites where fracking is proposed, will not be affected and neither will the local environment. The impact to the environment is certainly an order of magnitude less the sinking several hundred tones of concrete into the grounbd to support a wind turbine. Once fracking is complete and the oil/gas is flowing, any infrastructure impact is extremely low.

Of course, none of this is really anything to do with the environment. It is all about shoving the green agenda down everyones throat and making us all comply with it, however much hardship this may cause. These days, I don’t usually find myself agreeing with what most Tories have to say, but the following from MP Mark Reckless sums it up: ‘We need to face down these green and far-Left extremists who want to stop our economy growing. I am sorry that Sussex Police have simply not been up to the mark to do it. We have certainly lost this battle but, regardless of where you stand on fracking, I hope to ensure we win the war against this type of protest movement.’

That may be difficult if the police carry on with their spineless approach to crowd control and the threat of mob-rule.

I would love to know how the likes of the people who support or are a part of groups such as ‘No Dash for Gas’ actually think that we can keep not only the lights on, but all the other systems which rely on energy, just by using renewables. How would they organise themselves if their mobile phone servers had a black-out, or the Internet servers suffered the same fate. Or how would they feel if their grandmother went into hospital for major surgery, only to be told the operation couldn’t be carried out due to power outages and the grandmother had died as a result. I’ll tell you how they would feel, enraged, that’s what. But that will be the consequence if this cock-eyed energy policy is pursued. In the meantime more and more of us will slip into energy poverty as the rising cost of renewable energy systems is picked up by the tax-payer and bill-payers. But the greens and the loony-left and all those other doom-sayers of our future will all be happy until it hits THEM directly. Just watch the U-turns happen, as the penny begins to drop and our infrastructure starts to collapse due to insufficient energy supply. I can’t wait to see the faces of the greeny’s when all their well laid plans fall to a heap at their feet. What then will they protest about!!!
