9 Months and counting…………

I have been back in the UK for nine months and, now fully remember why it was that I left.  This country is a complete joke.  The government and their bosses in the banking sector continue to screw every last penny from everyone who tries to support themselves.  Being on ‘the sick’ is considered a good career move in many parts of the country, (especially where I am in Wales). Being a fat fuck is now considered an illness, no doubt I could get myself sectioned for pointing out the blinding obvious.  I have given up talking to most people.  I have just had two weeks of nationalist flag waving for idiots, who now want more of my money so they can play games for a living.  You want to play games for a living, fine, get enough idiots to turn up and pay to watch you.  Good on you.  Steal my money through taxation because no fucker is interested watching  your stupid so called sports, then I have a problem.

Gods Salesman Arrive

Anyone that knows me, also knows that I am an atheist.  Atheism is even considered a religion by the BBC.  So whilst sat at home on Saturday and there is a knock at the door.  Not expecting guests I wonder who it can be.  I open the door to a well dressed man holding some leaflets and smiling at me.  He informs me that he is calling on behalf of the local church, and proffers some of his leaflets towards me.  I glance down at the leaflet, and politely inform him that as a physics graduate it is scientifically impossible for me to believe both in gravity and god.  He smiles back a little more nervously and states that there are many famous physicists that are Christians. I offer in reply you mean like Galileo, who is also known as the ‘father of Science’ and was ostracised by the Catholic Church for heinous crime of suggesting that the Earth is not the centre of Universe, and perhaps the Earth actually orbits the much larger Sun.  How dare he.  I returned his leaflet and off he went.  I wonder if I would have been so politely spoken to had I turned up at a Religious household and tried to hand out free copies of Richard Dawkins latest books with the intent of converting a few.

So as Atheism is now considered a religion, do I get protection from the religious intolerance that I have to put up with.  Or is that only reserved for idiots who believe in sky fairies?

An Anarchists Dream……

I have been back in the UK for just over three weeks, and slowly but surely the political beings that run every facet of our lives are doing just as any pro anarchist would wish them to do.  They are showing the kind of contempt for the people whom they claim to represent, as any beef farmer shows for his fully grown stock – off to the slaughterhouse with the lot of you!

I have no urge to protest, or any desire to scream and stamp my feet at the at the recent anti-democratic 3 line whip for a no to the EU referendum.  In fact the easiest way I see of getting reform or change in the way that the UK is governed is to fully support who ever is in charge.

I shall soon be lobbying the government, backed of course by pseudo-science for a complete alcohol ban.  As well as a 100% increase in council tax for anyone over the age of 40 (I’m 36).  As studies have shown that people over 40 use council services a lot more, prove me wrong!.   I shall then turn my attention to immigration.  Firstly a full British passport to be issued to everyone wanting to come to the UK.  No waiting for benefits for new comers, and priority (affirmative action I think it is called) for any new immigrant to jump the queue when it comes to social housing.

Gadget Tax – We all know gadgets (mobile phones, ipods and the like) give you cancer so this tax is to offset the cost to NHS – 50% (+VAT) should do it.

Car / Petrol – To solve obesity (obviously), and the planet, I will encourage HMRC to double all duty on fuel and the proceeds to pay for everyone in the UK to be issued with a bicycle.  No new roads are to be built only cycle paths.

Old age tax – Everyone over the age of 75, should be forced to move into sheltered accommodation – this will of course be paid for by stripping all of their assets.  This will free up lots of big houses.

Increase inheritance tax to 95% of everything over the cost of a funeral

The best way to bring down this government is not to protest against anything it does, but to actually encourage it, and to help push it further in every way.  Don’t complain about VAT at 20% – Demand an increase to 30%.  Demand a bigger NHS.  Ban alcohol, tobacco, salt, fat, meat, GM crops, petrol, diesel, cars, lorries.  They can all be proven to be bad for your health and cost the NHS money.

Only when the government has destroyed the majority of peoples lives will we turn as one against it.  They are already doing a good job, they just need a bit more encouragement.  I can but dream.

The current government is already in its death throws, all it needs is a bit of encouragement and maybe, just maybe this 5th of November will be one to remember!!!

 

Modern Mafia

The village in Southern Bulgaria where I have my house is inhabited by Turkish-Bulgarians who were a little persecuted by Todor Zhivkov as his grasp for power waned in the late 1980’s.  So they have recent memories of ‘Government Policy’ not being what’s said on the tin.  They have no expectations of their current government to make anything better, or to do anything other than line their own pockets.

This is in complete contrast to some of the people of the UK who I have spoken to since my return two weeks ago.  Instead of actually laying the blame with the politicians who created this mess, there is an expectation that the only people that can solve the problems are politicians.

I like to think of the government as the ‘Mafia’, they come to every house and take your money for your ‘protection’, if you don’t pay they will just take it by force.  When the only thing we need protecting from is the Mafia themselves.

I am told that if I don’t like the system as it is, I need to ‘change it from within the political framework that already exists’.  Which is a bit like telling someone who is being extorted for ‘protection money’ that if they don’t like it they should join the Mafia and change it from within to be more like the Salvation army.

I don’t want a different Mafia boss, I just don’t want a Mafia at all.  Life without the Mafia seems unimaginable to most.  Replies I get vary, but none ever suggest that life without the Mafia would be possible or even desired.

Trying to get rid of the Mafia is a bit like trying to abolish slavery 200 years ago, life without it just seems impossible see here.

 

Best Before?

I have just finished preserving the last of my garden food, it is all canned, jarred, or dried.  Most of it will keep for a year or so, the stuff in jars will probably last even longer. Every now and then though one might go bad.  I don’t however have to put ‘best-before’, or ‘use-by’ dates on anything that I have preserved.  So when reading this article about  ‘sell by dates’ being removed from food packaging in UK it did make me chuckle!  Why is it that we as humans in the western world need informing when food is off and shouldn’t be eaten.  I can tell straight away, the stuff stinks, or tastes like old sick.

 

‘Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman: “People are confused about food labelling” – who exactly is confused?  What is there to be confused about?  If it stinks and is not blue cheese chuck it.  If it tastes of sick throw it away.  No date is required.  If shops sell you some crappy food take it back or even better don’t shop there again.

A loaf of bread in my local shop is 38p for fresh bread after 24 hours you can get it for half price.  After another 24 hours it is sold as ‘dog bread’ for pennies.  Not a single label in sight.  Amazing.  Bulgarians are obviously much more intelligent than British bods who would all poison themselves if not told exactly when food goes bad, or confused even when told.  I know most people aren’t idiots, so why do we accept being treated like them.
