They’re at it again!!

 

Remember the row over the Iraq war? How we swore blind that we, as the people, wanted no part in it? And still, the then Prime minister Tony Blair stroked US ass and entered into an illegal war anyway?

Remember all of that bad press afterwards and the leaders that went unpunished for their crimes? Yes, their CRIMES…including using banned chemical weapons to murder innocent people.

I was looking through the posts at Facebook today and happened upon a very interesting and informative post by Keith Ordinary Guy titled “A letter a day to No 10”.  I shall post it here in full for you to read, share and copy/paste onto your own paper so you too can send it to Downing Street.

First though, follow the links and read what you find there…know that they accuse Syria of using banned chemical weapons in order to justify seeking to bypass the UN in order to kiss Bilderberg butts and allow the corporate world to profit again illegally from the deaths of innocent people.

Are we really prepared, as a nation, to stand by and shake our heads whilst allowing our government to represent us in this manner so we can complain afterwards because we seemingly enjoy a good topic of conversation?  This isn’t a Soap Opera, this is REALITY and unless we unite, it’ll just go from bad to worse.

The National Sleep Out Protest against the Bedroom Tax, homelessness and Benefit Cuts that took place in over 50 towns and cities across the UK on Saturday 24th August 2013 has proven that we really can make a difference, as the first article in Keith’s Facebook status proves.  So take heed people and more importantly, TAKE ACTION.

Kieth’s status is as follows:

 

Letter to number 10. No 497.Wednesday 28 August 2013. Syria, another disaster waiting to happen.Shares are encouraged and welcomed. If this letter speaks for you and you wish to send your own copy please feel free to copy and paste the text for your own letter.

Dear Mr Cameron,

For a government that has lied to and wilfully deceived the country and brought chaos and despair to so many of the poorest and most vulnerable people in the country such that a UN Watchdog is due to arrive today to investigate the bedroom tax and people being driven to suicide, you are not fit to make any decisions on another sovereign nation. Nor, of course, is Obama, whose troops have used Depleted Uranium weapons in Iraq with devastating consequences for the lives of the Iraqi people. Britain and America are not fit to make decisions about Syria especially as it seems that the debate is to be about an armed response as a first resort and not, as it always should be, a last resort.

Of course, we cannot know who is pulling strings behind the scenes as you are at great pains to avoid declaring corporate interests which we know dominate government decisions and the last people you listen to is us. There is also the matter that the last people to suffer in any armed conflict are those who make the decisions to pursue it. If, as is likely, you create a situation of spreading yet more hatred against the West in the Middle East, it is not you who will suffer the consequences of your actions and we’ll be at risk from yet more rhetoric about extremists and more draconian measures to suppress it and us into the bargain.

Gung ho western interests with more testosterone than brains are doubtless champing at the bit to have a go in Syria and are ready to make vast profits on the proceeds of war. The world is an ever increasingly fragile place, driven by the neoliberal agenda. Given the dominance of neoliberalism in UK politics now, it is unlikely that we’ll see restraint or from you tomorrow. No good will be served by precipitous decisions and whatever the truth is of the situation in Syria, striking first and asking questions later is not a solution. The history of war in recent times does not inspire confidence that civilians will not suffer and the military industrial war machine is not to be trusted any more than you are.

A letter a day to Number 10 Downing Street. The government get all sorts of free media time to have their say, now I am having mine, with the help of friends and supporters who have kindly donated stamps and stationary. My thanks to you all. There is also a website with all the letters and replies, featuring Mr Suggs, Eeyore and Ribbit plus bonus material.  http://www.keithordinaryguy.org.uk/

We have a voice…NOW is the time to exercise our rights as civil human beings.

Normality, so easily defined.

It’s been a while since I posted anything…not because I have nothing to say, but because people are “normal” and don’t make the effort to interact…without other voices, how can this work as it’s supposed to?

I was on Facebook several days ago and saw people posting pictures that contained captions…most were about David Cameron and his apparent inability to make realistic and achievable decisions regards to who should be responsible for making up the “deficit” (debt) that this country has purportedly acquired for itself.  Captions that referred to bedroom tax – where people are expected to pay for any empty bedrooms in their house, yet it doesn’t mention all of the empty bedrooms in Mr Cameron’s 4 houses.

I believe a leader should set by example…and if he’s not prepared to pay the same taxes he enforces on everyone else, then he shouldn’t expect anyone else to pay them either.

Another caption was a quote supposedly uttered by Cameron himself regards to the latest British meat scandal, where horse meat is being sold as beef and used in our supermarkets.  The quote read as “if the poor are hungry, let them eat horse.” I’d like to be quoted too – “If you are hungry Mr Cameron, best you eat horse and if it fulfills the need, encourage the people of Great Britain to do the same.”

We fight for equality and yet we allow ourselves to be treated inferior by those who pride themselves in being “upper class”.

Many on Facebook liked and shared those pictures…yet none have the courage to stand by their opinions and raise their voice in the hope that together, we can change the way we are dictated to. Disagreeing with anything never matters to anyone when it is done in silence and behind the safety of a computer screen.

I have the courage to stand by all of my opinions, even if 99% of the population disagree with them…take for example the new Council Tax bill – I received a letter at the beginning of the week informing me that I shall be responsible for paying my Council Tax, even though I was born disabled.  I am no longer entitled to my 25% single occupancy discount because my son is now 18, even though he is in full time education. I received a direct debit form with that letter and was instructed to set up a standing order immediately, even though the amount I am supposed to pay has not yet been calculated. It’s illogical…what do they expect me to do, pay something so that they can then have an indication of what I might be able to afford and then charge me that same amount every month? Or send in the bailiffs for non-payment of an indefinite amount that isn’t even due for another month?

I remember back in the days of Thatcher, when the country was in uproar because she liked to pinch pennies from the poor to benefit the rich…whether the details are the same or not, it doesn’t matter…the principles are the same and once again, we’re the ones who voted them in to power. David Cameron will still have full pockets and 4 houses when his term in office has expired, but what of the people he’s forcing to pay the whole country’s debts from monies they simply do not have?

The future of this country actually scares me and I’m not ashamed to admit it.
