You can’t do that…

Posted: June 6, 2018 in Uncategorized

You can’t do that.

 

 

This is the UK now.

“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.”

You cannot question the narrative.

You cannot question any religion, or followers of any religion unless that religion is Christianity. You cannot report on the crimes committed by followers of any religion, unless the criminals are suspected of being Christians.

Islamophobia?

“Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it.” 

You cannot have the view that all the police are working for the government against you, that the police can and will withhold evidence that may prove innocence.

You cannot question the the governments handling of the brexit negotiations, that they are not following the wishes of the majority. That the majority wish to just leave and to deal with the consequences as they occur.

We must accept any totalitarian diktat from the EU, to prevent you from seeing an alternative view, unless you pay a tax to the EU.

“Big Brother is Watching You.”

You cannot have known that the EU was responsible for the out-break of peace throughout Europe since 1945. Nothing to do with the brave Men and Boys who put everything on the line, for the peoples of Europe, on this day 74 years ago.

You cannot question the government line that the Russians made the deadliest nerve agent known to man, Novichok, and that the Russians will spread this agent around at random, to potentially kill millions, yet none died. You cannot question the governments right to antagonise the Russians, and threatening a third ‘world war’ by bombing a country whose leader the government doesn’t like.

“…the object of waging a war is always to be in a better position in which to wage another war.”  

You cannot question the total and utter fuck up that is the rail system, trains late, trains cancelled, trains over-crowded, trains lost, FFS; and NO nationalisation is not the answer; just make the operator’s directors fulfill their promises under threat of fines, confiscation of personal assets or imprisonment.

You must never, ever, ever question the government narrative, no matter which party is in government, the government hates you.

“… The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.”

.

“The choice for mankind lies between freedom and happiness and for the great bulk of mankind, happiness is better.”

It’s that time again

Posted: April 27, 2018 in Uncategorized

It’s that time again.

Time when the parasites of the main political parties want your vote.

Time when the main political parties make all kinds of promises to you, with no intention whatsoever of keeping those promises.

Time when your local council will, having already increased the council tax you pay, agree, whether from the same party or not, to cut the services in your local borough. Whilst at the same time, continuing to pay the un-elected, unaccountable cabinet, their vast wages, expenses and non-contributory pensions.

Oh, and have you registered to vote? If not, you may face a firing squad  receive a £1000 fine.

Local council elections have by far the lowest turn-out of any elections and that is understandable, when, whichever party takes control of the borough, totally ignores the needs of the local people, but, implements the wishes of the national parties, and of course the EU.

Normally we would not register to vote, normally we would not vote; even if registered, we would not vote for any of the main parties, we would look to an Independent candidate, alas there is no independent standing here.

However, this time we are registered because of this:

https://www.votenone.org.uk/

OK it’s not exactly None Of The Above but, it is a way to show your disgust, your disappointment, your disillusionment with the arse’oles in Wastemonster, Whitehall, the Electoral commission and your local troughers.

It’s a way of showing your protest, without resorting to the usual ‘cock n balls’ or writing “your all a bunch of wankers” across the ballot form. It will show the PTB that we are not apathetic or we are just ‘too fuckin bone idle to get of our arses to go an vote.’

Votenone have some revealing statistics on their website, showing that up to a third of ‘registered’ voters, either won’t vote or can’t find someone to vote for.

THIS FROM 2015

1) Clear votes for NONE were observed by observers of the election counts.

Those clear votes for NONE now make it indefensible for the Electoral Commission to continue to classify protest votes as ‘voter intention uncertain’.

The more protest votes there are, the more they become newsworthy, the more difficult it will be for the Electoral Commission to silence that protest.  (See Making Protest Votes Count.)

2) As in those Northern Ireland constituencies, in David Cameron’s own constituency and elsewhere, the spoilt ballots beat the votes for several other candidates.

Yet in each constituency, and nationally, the BBC chooses to report the votes for all candidates, and ignore the sometimes larger number of votes for None of the candidates.

Clear votes for NONE make it indefensible for the BBC and other media to ignore protest, and dismiss protest votes as ‘uncertain’.

But things will only change when votes for NONE are clear, and in large numbers that make them newsworthy.

If just some of the silent 34% Vote NONE this time, then the protest for change could be the biggest ever public protest in UK history.  It would show the reality that the government represents less than a quarter of the country.


Establish the right to say NO, as well as YES, to UK politics.

Don’t be silent.
Vote for a candidate who you trust
to work hard for things you believe in,
or vote NONE in protest.

 

So with a co-ordinated protest of ‘votenone’ they may begin to understand that, the Brexit vote, the rise of protest parties throughout europe and of course the vote for ‘The Donald’ proves that the silent majority have had enough.

It’s been a while…

Posted: April 17, 2018 in Uncategorized

It’s been an eventful time since I last posted here; my beloved Mum passed away, we had to watch her die an extremely slow death, we had her funeral where most of our extended family came to pay their respects, it was good to see them all, some who have not changed, at all, just older, some new faces who I hope I’ll get to know over the coming years.

It’s been a time of great change with so many of Mums’ Grand-children, Great Grand-children and Great Great Grand children arriving and her departing.

We had to attend Mums’ inquest into her death, delayed because of commitments of the Doctors who treated Mum in her final days. The inquest was carried out with the utmost respect, by the Coroner, if not by the coroner’s office officials, who seemed to think the family were a bit of a nuisance to their busy schedule. But the inquest was very thorough and arrived at a satisfactory conclusion for all, with the Coroner apologising for the behaviour of his staff.

The Coroner’s summation at the end was particularly dignified  in how he spoke of Mum, without ever having known her.

.

But we can see that some things never change.

The government still hates us, it hates all people who don’t follow the narrative. The government still wants to kill as many people as possible, whether the people of these Islands suffering via the NHS’ wasteful use of resources and piss poor management, lack of social care, overcrowding and a dire lack of housing, forcing people into debt to pay for the essentials of living, covering up/ ignoring the mass grooming, rape and killing of ‘white working class’ girls for forty years, lying to us (Boris) daily, protecting the banks and corporations profits rather than have them fund industry, to create real jobs and wealth.

Or people of foreign lands; whose only crime is to live in a country whose ‘leaders’ don’t follow the narrative. To bomb, indiscriminately, innocents, while funding the ‘good guys’ who torture, behead, murder, cage and burn and terrorise those same innocents.

Why, if Assad should be condemned, for using Chemical weapons, to having the Syrian people bombed, should not the Russian people suffer the same fate for Putin’s attack on Salisbury?… Cheap oil and gas? Russian Oligarchs funding political parties? Nuclear Armageddon? It doesn’t suit the narrative does it? It would cause mayhem if Vlad turned the taps off, it would threaten the hold on power, of both main parties, if the Oligarchs chose not to fund them, and, where would our betters whore themselves without access to the yachting parties, Italian villas and drug fuelled orgies of the rich and famous. Oh, and no-one survives Armageddon, no matter how rich or powerful.

No, only poor people deserve to suffer, in the eyes of government, only poor people deserve to die; pensioners struggling to eat or heat – that is if you get a pension (waspi’s) – homeless ex servicemen, abandoned by the very government whose orders they followed, nurses shopping at food-banks,WTF, people dying in hospital corridors for want of a bed.

And Brexit, forget that, go back to sleep, take a selfie, watch some rich, spoiled prick on Sky sports, believe everything some rich ex rock-star tells you, ’cause obviously he knows best, he wrote and sang some shit songs back in the past, ignored his kids cry for help, so obviously knows whats best for the uneducated, stupid people who do not  understand the narrative. Listen, attentively, to the Governor of the Bank of England, “it’s all going to turn to shit, ’cause you voted the wrong way.” ’cause he knows best. Prick. And yes, the son of Satan, T. Blair, is back, looking to convince  force the people to hold another referendum or for parliament to ignore the wishes of the majority, to preserve the status quo. Brexit is not going to happen, not ever; yes they will tell us we’ve left the EU but, we will still add to the EU coffers, still be governed by EU (globalist) law and our armed forces will be part of the EU (NATO) army. The ‘prophet’ Orwell warned us with ‘1984’, the government, no matter which colour of rosette, used ‘1984’ as a road map to complete your subjugation.

.

  Still after all the above, we have had some wonderful news, Mrs. Inmate and me are going to be Grandparents… one door closes, another one opens!

Ten years

Posted: June 30, 2017 in Uncategorized

Ten years ago, tomorrow this;

happened.

The smoking ban in public places was introduced, without consultation, without it being in the Liebour Party Manifesto, without it being in any party manifesto. This disgusting piece of legislation was brought into force to ruin the lives and businesses of people and the pub trade. It forced people to the outdoors, no matter the weather, it is the major factor for the closure of 11,000 pubs across the nation, and it was imposed without any scientific proof that smoking tobacco was harmful to smokers or harmful through the mythical medium of 2nd, 3rd or 4th hand smoke to non-smokers.

THE HARM WAS PURELY THE FIGMENT OF THE ANTI-SMOKING LOBBY IMAGINATION

It was the removal of personal freedoms and, property rights of Pub Landlords. Read this;

https://underdogsbiteupwards.wordpress.com/2017/06/30/ten-years-in-exile/

“I still laugh like a hyena with a nitrous oxide overdose at every business out there who claims to have a ‘no smoking policy’. No, you have no such policy. You do not have the choice in this matter, you are not allowed to decide. The Righteous have take that decision from you.”

” You do not decide your own policy. That is not your choice. The option resides with a higher power – your business is now their business. Just do as you are told and act as unpaid smoke police. Suck it up and get used to it, you don’t have the balls to fight it.”

Or this

 https://factsdomatter.co.uk/2017/06/26/the-smoking-ban-10-years-on/

“Truth is, the old style boozer is dying out fast. I’ve no problem with things evolving according to customer demand but the smoking ban had a brutal impact on many pubs, forcing those that were already struggling out of business.”

Social engineering at its most blatant, started by the

Son of Satan

And to be continued by the messiah,

St. Jeremy

if he was ever to be elected to office.

And says his older half? brother doesn’t want the job either. Indeed non of the ‘family’ want the job.

To much of a commitment? To much responsibility? To much dressing up in the uniforms and medals of Ruritainia?

Opening the state parliament, watching a parade on your ‘official’ birthday and laughing waving at poor people from your palace balcony.

It’s all tooo much.

Living a lifestyle that the rest of us could only dream of; the best of everything, free houses, free cars, free travel, free clothes, free food and drink, waited on hand and foot, never having to even open a door for yourself, never having to worry about paying the mortgage or ‘leccy bill. Mixing with the great and the good, eating in the finest restaurants, or getting the finest celebrity chefs to cook your food when you want to throw an extravagant party for friends and flunkies.

No he

Then.

Rather than have the rest of us pay for your lifestyle,

Then walk away mate, find a job, marry a nice girl, get a mortgage, raise a family, pay the bills.

Why?

Posted: June 5, 2017 in Uncategorized

This coming Thursday millions of people will cast their vote to install yet more Thieves, Liars and possible future Murderers to the cesspit that is Parliament.

WHY?

Do you believe that some Dick like this;

Image result for david crausby

(sir?) david crausby

is anymore intelligent than you? Does he appear anymore informed than you? Does he look like the kind of bloke that gets things done? Does he look anymore educated than you? Does he look like a yes man of the Labour party, following the whip, no matter who’s the leader; whether the Corporatist, son of satan Blair or the marxist Corbyn?

Well does he?

Does he look like the kind of trougher you expect to see in the commons, milking the system to the maximum? Does he own two taxpayer paid for homes, one which he rents out, for profit? And does he rent another home for himself, at taxpayers expense? Does he look like the kind of man that will claim every last penny of the allowances he believes he is entitled to?

Does this look like a man going nowhere as a shop steward, who jumped on the union bandwagon, – the real owners of the Labour party – sold his soul for thirty pieces and promised to do the party’s bidding.

Does he look like the man who has overseen the destruction of the constituency he pretends to represent: From a once clean, tidy, thriving town, full of independent shops, busy pubs, industry and a work ethic; to the run down, filthy, ghettoised, drug ridden, no-go areas, benefit claiming, workshy  shit-hole it has become. On his watch the pubs have emptied and shut down, the only independent shops are asian run clothing stores, asian run corner off-licences; where the few remaining older white folks are loathed to shop, pound shops selling shite and of course bookies, where the workshy benefit claimants can lose what little money they have.

WANT CORBYN, GET CRAUSBY.

You may consider St Jeremy to be the best man for the job of Prime Minister (personally I think the bloke is an illiterate waste of oxygen) BUT….But remember you can’t choose St Jeremy if you live in Bolton North East, you can only vote for the thief above…crausby, a man who hates smokers, a man who wants more EU when the constituents don’t, a man who voted for the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya and the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocents resulting in the islamic backlash we must now suffer, a man who has filled his boots at the trough of state, at your expense, a man who has watched the town he ‘represents’ fall to the evil of multi-culturalism, a man who’s personal wealth has rocketed while yours has stagnated.

Why would you vote for a man like him?

WHY?

Manchester

Posted: May 23, 2017 in Uncategorized

Just watched the leader of the Conservatives Theresa May being questioned by Andrew ‘Brillo’ Neil on the PBC.

For someone who has had the best that a paid for British education, a Grammar school, Oxbridge education, she was pathetic.

Theresa May sounded like a child who had been trained intensively to repeat over and over the same phrases; strong economy, strong and stable, a vote for me, it’s me or Jeremy Corbyn, a fairer way.

As with all politicians she did her utmost to avoid answering the questions that Brillo put to her, but she couldn’t even deflect him with evasive answers of some relevance, she just kept spewing the same phrases that had nothing whatsoever to do with the questions being asked.

Within the first ten minutes of the programme starting you could see the way this was going and to be honest, it was getting embarrassing to watch; to think this is the best that British Politics can offer. FFS she’s a so-called experienced politician, ex home secretary and un-elected Prime Minister.

.

But of course the atrocity in Manchester last night over-shadows anything.

Again the Religion of Peace brought terror to one of our great cities and, lets not fool ourselves, these murderous killings are committed by ‘good’ muslims, the ones who believe that to follow their prophets’ teachings is to kill all non-believers. To remove western culture from the face of the earth and in doing their prophets bidding to become a martyr.

The ‘bad’ muslims are the ones you and I probably encounter every day, the shop-keepers, taxi drivers, the carers, the nurses and doctors. The people who just want to get along and try to make a better life for themselves and their families, indeed many ‘bad’ muslims may well have been at the concert at the Manchester Arena last night.

To attack children and teenagers out enjoying life is to me the worst of what the Religion of Peace has to offer, truly despicable.

But at the end of the day is this not what our governments have brought us?

You reap what you sow!

Didn’t ‘The great Satan’ Anthony Charles Lynton Blair bring havoc and mayhem to the streets of Baghdad and Kabul.

Didn’t Call Me Dave Cameron bring havoc and mayhem to the streets of Tripoli and Benghazi?

Bombing schools and hospitals indiscriminately from 30,000 feet.

.

And where were the security forces last night, you know, the brave security forces that Theresa was so full of praise for this morning? eh?

Millions spent, freedoms removed, clamp downs on speech, clamp downs on movement, this, and your ability to browse the internet.

Eh, where the fuck were they last night? Fucking nowhere, that’s were.

Strong and stable, aye right. Useless more like.

And all those ‘brave’ robo-cops,

Image result for armed police manchester

stood hundreds of yards away from the incident, just in case there might be another explosion, there to strike more fear into the minds of any passing locals.

If last nights atrocity hadn’t been so sickening I could laugh out loud at the Prime minister, the Security Forces and the Police, as it is I am saddened and angry.

We went to see the band Leftfield on Saturday night for their Leftism 22 celebration of the album, and what a night.

If you are planning to go see them, you won’t be disappointed, they are awesome. If you had not planned to see them then do so.

The show is a riot of colour, light, atmosphere and Bass; the Bass, it travels through you, vibrating every organ over and over till you become one with the music, immense.

The sounds get more and more intense the further the album goes on until the, for me, climax of John Lydon on Open Up.

Do go watch Leftfield, Awesome.

IF YOU MUST…

Posted: May 17, 2017 in Uncategorized

If you must vote then vote for an INDEPENDENT.

Look for an Independent candidate in your area, find out what they are standing for, contact them, give them your support and convince as many of your friends and family to vote Independent on June 8th.

Here are two people doing the right thing and standing in the fake election as Independents; with no party allegiances, no party Wip, just the concerns of local people to fight for.

No worries that they will have to fulfil the wishes of Big Business, Big Unions, Big Banks, Big Green.

.

Stuart Hill (first minister of Forvik) standing for Orkney and Shetland.

Stuart has proved beyond all reasonable doubt that Orkney and Shetland are Independent Sovereign Nations, not part of Scotland, not part of the UK; he has been in court, including the Supreme Court and the only proof that the government can provide, that Orkney and Shetland are part of the UK, is a magazine article.

Indeed Stuart has been imprisoned, for taking on the Establishment, a number of times.

Have a look here

.

Danny Bamping is standing in Plymouth Sutton & Devonport as an Independent.

Danny has also taken on the Establishment on a number of occasions, mainly over the money-making scam that is Council Tax, he has fought them in the courts and won.

Danny is one of the founders of http://www.noparty.co/ a movement to challenge the corrupt party system that blights the governing of the nation, indeed we’ve discussed noparty before, here

.

Take a little time to look at the above candidates and any Independent standing where you live, you may be surprised at what they have to say.

If you must vote, vote INDEPENDENT.

Vote for the Party

Posted: May 15, 2017 in Uncategorized

VOTE LABOUR

Have more of your hard earned money removed, by force, at source, by your betters.

Stay in the European Union, but, without those imagined benefits, you once thought you had.

Travel on a Nationalised railway, payed for by you, by taxation, but, still pay for rail travel, without the ability to complain if it lets you down.

Pay for a Nationalised Energy company, in your area, through taxation, but still pay for the energy you use.

A ban on fracking, yet no policy to generate the energy needs of the nation.

Pay for more Wind-farms, through taxation, even though they add nothing to the energy needs of the nation.

source

Pay for more NGO’s to harry and dictate how you live your life.

Pay for the promotion of extra ‘rights’ for minority groups over the general population’s privileges.

Pay more for the Leftist Propaganda pumped out by the BBC, via the taxation of the so-called License Fee.

Pay for more Police officers to punish you if you do not do the States bidding.

Pay more for Private corporations to run the things you thought the State ran; Police, Courts, Prisons, Prisoner Transfer, Councils, the NHS; add to the already huge profits and fortunes of the likes of Serco, G4S, Capita Siemens and Amey.

Prepare for more of those ‘rights’ you think you have to be removed, expect the internet to be policed in a stricter fashion, the right to free speech to be clamped down on, the right to free assembly to be clamped down on, restrictions on travel to be implemented.

Pay much more for the necessities; food, water, the roof over your families heads, heating, lighting and car costs – as the Labour Party blame Brexit for increases in energy prices and imports from those nasty foreigners.

There’s a theme running in the above, the facts that you and I and everybody else will pay much, much more in taxation to bring about the Socialist ‘wet dream’ State of Corbyn’s Labour Party and this is before the Labour Party start to borrow the Trillions needed to build the infrastructure projects they have promised.

VOTE CONSERVATIVE

Pay more get less.

Have more of your hard earned money removed, by force, at source, by your betters.

Expect to be ‘out’ of the European Union, but, to be paying for the ‘privilege’ of trading with it.

Pay for a Privatised Energy company, in your area, through taxation, but still pay for the numbers on your meter you use.

Pay for more Wind-farms, through taxation, even though they add nothing to the energy needs of the nation.

Expect every square inch of land to be drilled for oil and gas, but, don’t expect to see a benefit from it. Indeed expect to pay more for water that is poisoned.

Expect more Privatisation of the NHS. More private finance initiatives – borrowing private money – to pay for the ever increasing burden of litigation, source, and to eventually prevent smokers, drinkers, fatties and the poor from using the NHS.

Pay extra for seeing your GP, even though you already pay.

Not a great deal between Conservative and Labour is there?

The Conservatives will make you and I pay more, although, unlike the Labour Party, the Tories will empower private companies to determine your life choices and punishment for defying them rather than the State.

VOTE LIBERAL DEMOCRAT

Have more of your hard earned money removed, by force, at source, by your betters.

Stay in the European Union, but, without those imagined benefits, you once thought you had. And, lose the Pound get the EURO.

Expect more punitive legislation from the EU as punishment for the temerity we showed in trying to leave – hair-cuts, TAXES, for your savings, as bail-ins are introduced to save the banks.

Pay for a Privatised Energy company, in your area, through taxation, but still pay for the numbers on your meter you use.

Pay for more Wind-farms, through taxation, even though they add nothing to the energy needs of the nation.

Pay much more for the necessities; food, water, the roof over your families heads, heating, lighting and car costs – as the Liberal Democrats blame previous referenda, governments and anybody but themselves for increases in energy prices and imports from those nasty foreigners.

Expect more Privatisation of the NHS. More private finance initiatives – borrowing private money – to pay for the ever increasing burden of litigation, source, and to eventually prevent smokers, drinkers, fatties and the poor from using the NHS.

Pay extra for seeing your GP, even though you already pay.

VOTE GREEN PARTY

All of the above Labour and Liberal Democrat policies.

Return to the Stone-age.

Consider this; without Oil fired, Gas fired, Coal fired or Nuclear power stations, how do we keep the lights on? How do we produce the goods and services we need. How do we run the hospitals?

A vote for any of the above Parties is a vote for the mutual destruction of the nation as we know it, and much, much more of your ‘hard earned’ forced from you to pay for the fantasies of entitled MPs.

A vote for any of the above will be a continuation of,

This

Please take the time to watch the 15 minute video above, it’s well worth it.
