which accounts for the lack of posting today - and the reason for which is the shower of 'sh 1 ts' that have managed to get themselves elected to parliament.
Exhibit 1 is a report on Politics dot co dot uk which states that MPs and peers say they are deeply concerned over plans to give ministers "carte blanche" over the circumstances in which the authorities can enter people's homes. We have, so we are informed, a 'new breed' of MPs who were elected in 2010, especially amongst the Conservative Party, who are 'fired up about freedom and personal liberty. Yet where are the voices against the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 - surely the most pernicious act ever passed, other than the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act - both of which are acts of parliament that in effect give 'carte blanche' to elected politicians for the imposition of a true totalitarian state.
Exhibit 2 is a report in the Financial Times that the newspaper has learnt that a proposed rail link, costing an estimated £5bn, twixt Heathrow and Gatwick is being seriously considered. I'm well aware some may consider that when an announcement, or hint of an announcement, by our puppet government is concerned, the first thing I do is to initially look for the 'EU involvement' - and I think that I may be forgiven for this. If one just trots over to the EU's Trans European Network - Transport (TEN-T) website it will quickly be seen that one of their aims is 'modal' - in other words 'tying up',or making the best use of, existing transport networks to benefit the free movement of good, people and services. The alternative to this scheme would be an additional runway at Heathrow, something which the present Coalition has 'hit on the head', no doubt because they know damn well that it would be mired in legal challenges and protests so what better than a new rail line? Yet another example of the puppet government forestalling that which is to come - and who is to say that 'conversations' have not already been held on this?
That the 'divide' twixt those supposedly elected to represent the people's interests and the people is best illustrated by this post by Brendan O'Neill on Spiked. As Brendan states, of all the problems we as a nation face, what excited both the media and the Conservative conference was the fact that a 'fat tax' might be introduced and the subject of 'gay' marriage was considered 'important'. Is this the nadir to which our politics has sunk? Possibly, returning to another well-worn question, when considering Articles 4, 5 & 6 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), is there any major aspect of governance that our puppet government has left in which to decide policy? Actually, on second thoughts, they are only paving the way on gay marriages, so as to negate any legal challenges under 'human rights'.
Just these two examples illustrate that we are beholden to the requirements of a foreign power, namely Brussels. The history of our nation is marked by those who have given their lives to progress the freedom of our country, whether they be 'martyrs', or those who have given their lives fighting for all that this country has stood, over the centuries. There are those amongst us who believe that the avenues of democracy should be used to overthrow the present state of our democracy - a similar view to those who believe that the EU and the Conservative Party can be changed from within - and that is something which is pure 'hogwash'. Has not history shown that to overthrow a pernicious state of affairs there is only one course of action, namely 'direct action? Next year, having reached the start of my 70th decade, I have lived my life - such as it has been - and for the benefit of future generations, I am quite prepared to become yet another martyr in our history.
Anyone with me.........?
