The Potential Costs of Farting in Public…

 

“Totally Insane” would adequately describe the Tory government and its legislative proposals.  I’m astounded at what I’ve just read – that farting in a public place can be considered as an “annoyance” and thus, under potentially new measures, can be deemed punishable under the new replacement for the dreaded ASBO, the IPNA (Injunctions to Prevent Nuisance and Annoyance).  This Bill will apply to anyone aged 10 and over.  Just think, if your neighbour’s son or daughter blinks too many times or the binmen don’t put your wheelie bin back in the exact spot in which they found it and it annoys you, they could get locked up for it and potentially lose their home.

God only help you if the cat from 4 doors down shits all over your garden and you complain to its owner and they deem you confrontational and annoying…you could quite well end up with a substantial fine and a shitty garden.

If this Bill applies to all of us in the UK, then does it apply to IDS, George Osbourne and David Cameron too? Because, quite frankly, I find the privatization of the NHS annoying. So too the treatment of our disabled and most vulnerable of society.  I also find the whole “Workfare” scheme and its new spin-offs annoying. And what of MPs pay increase? And their expenses???  Under new proposals, the unemployed will be forced to work a 40-hour week for their £56.80 Unemployment Benefit (the new Universal Credit), doing millions of jobs magicked up by this government…jobs that apparently don’t exist with a living wage attached.  Not only do I find this annoying but totally preposterous too.  Expecting the unemployed to work a whole week for less money than each individual MP claims for just 1 days’ dinner voucher?

The following articles are both factual and very interesting and surely worth the read:

A STATEMENT OF REASONABLE DEMANDS AND A FURTHER CALL TO ACTION.

 

George Rolph

14 hours ago

 

“When I first began this protest it was in a state of general fury, that a government in the UK would DARE to attack the most vulnerable people in the country and allow a private IT Company to profit from their misery. It was like a return to the days of Robin Hood; robbing the poor to give to the rich! Sheriff of Nottingham style.

 

I could not stand for that and no other decent person should either.

 

It was NEVER just about what they had done to me in removing all my benefits and leaving me on the verge of destitution. It was also about those mothers and fathers who found, like me, all income cut off who could not now feed either themselves or their children. It was also about those men and women fighting every day to survive in the face of crippling physical and mental illnesses; who were already living on the edges of poverty; now finding that the safety net that may have paid for all their lives with National Insurance Contributions being pulled out from under them as the government and ATOS pushed them off the high wire above it.

 

Now, let me just say this so there are no misunderstandings. If you are fiddling the system and are drawing money out you are not entitled too then in my eyes, you are scum. Nothing less than a common thief and you should be jailed and made to pay back every penny. However, this fight is not about those doing that. This fight is about people who are genuinely sick and need our help.

 

The problem here lies NOT with the sick and disabled, but with assessments that are target driven and which take no account of the real lives of those sick and disabled people. The problem is that the tick-box system that has been put in place is clearly unfit for purpose and MUST be scrapped.

 

There is also another issue and that is far more pressing because it is killing people at a rate of up to 32 a week, who are driven to despair and placed in a position of unrelenting fear. My first argument relates to those people.

 

Here than are my two demands and these are NOT negotiable.

 

1. That anyone who appeals against the decision to stop their benefits MUST have those benefits restored until the appeals process is complete.

 

2. The government will set up a genuinely independent committee of people with medical backgrounds, to look hard and quickly at the failings of the ATOS system; and make rapid and permanent changes to ensure that a holistic approach to each patients needs and concerns is fully implemented, BEFORE any decision is taken regarding their suitability for employment.

In other words, a system where patients attending assessments is put in place, whereby those patients are given space and time to explain how their illness affects their everyday life; and that those statements are also recorded and entered into evidence.

 

Both of these demands are reasonable. Both are achievable. Both are desirable.

 

If these demands are met then my protest can end and we can all get on with trying to live a normal life. There is nothing extreme about these demands and nothing in them that any reasonable minded person can object too. If the government refuse to implement these two recommendations and to do it quickly, this protest will become about corporate manslaughter charges and an ever escalating, non violent, but VERY LOUD international protest.

Now, in case any government ministers from both coalition parties are still under any illusions they can simply ignore this issue, let me spell this out:

 

Politically, this will utterly destroy you as political entities! NO ONE will ever trust you again and you will be confined to the dustbin of political history as people who tipped from democracy to cruel, idealogical tyranny. When the vast majority of our people have understood exactly the magnitude of what you have been doing, their anger will become utter disgust and then fury and you will be finished.

 

Furthermore, less the socialists among us are also thinking this will have a minimum impact upon them politically, let us just say this. We know and remember that it was YOU that introduced ATOS into this land and it was YOU that started this whole ball rolling. YOU will ALSO be brought to account for the deaths and misery it has caused.

 

We are NOT your serfs any longer. Get used to it! THOSE DAYS ARE GONE.

 

You are public servants NOT public masters. You are elected to serve THE PEOPLE not the policy whims of David Cameron, the EU, your whips, the media or those business lobbyists buying your ears. Trim your arrogance now while you can or we, the people, will trim it for you, and all the force and threatenings you can muster will not be enough to stop us. Your tin-pot feudal empire will not stand without the cooperation of the people and if you wish to avoid an English Spring you would do well to listen. No one sane wants trouble for his land and his people, but no one sane wants a government boot stamping on their necks either. Do not force a choice between the two.

 

I am one voice with a growing number of supporters but do not think you can just silence me and the whole thing will go away. From the ashes of my life will grow a movement that you will NEVER stop. Not because I am great, but because our PEOPLE are great and despite your best efforts to pervert them, enough have resisted those efforts to understand the difference between common decency and evil. They will form the hardcore of an avalanche that will sweep away those corrupt vermin now running our country. Once that happens here, it will spread around the developed world.

 

The population have been sending you old guard politicians very clear signals for a very long time. The rise of UKIP is the strongest of all those signals and your old methods for using the media to shape public opinion in your favour is weakening by the day. Ignore them at your peril. The spirit of the British lion is stirring. If it wakes up and roars you will never defeat it.

 

In closing I want to say a word to those urging me to give up because the psychotics in suits in Westminster cannot be beaten.

 

Go away from me!

 

I will not listen to you.

 

A war conducted by defeatist cowards can never be won. This fight goes on until those two very reasonable demands are met. Fight with me or go away. I have neither time nor energy to battle with you. I am offering my own life to save the lives of others. That is the tradition laid down over the millennia of human history. Some fights are worth dying for. This is one of them. To live in a land that would do these things to the very weak would be intolerable to me and only when YOU feel the same way will you have any understanding of why I am making this stand.

 

In times of war, it is good and right to call upon others to risk their lives for us in combat. This is a war none of us wanted. It was declared by a bunch of hyperactive civil servants who have forgotten the word ‘servant’ in their job description. I do not want to die, but neither can I live in a land willing to tolerate this evil when we have sent millions of our best young people to spill their blood around the world to prevent tyranny ruling. This is a domestic tyranny. It is REAL. It MUST be fought.

 

I am NOT the peoples saviour. I know of and acknowledge only one saviour – my Lord Jesus Christ – and He said this: Greater love has no man than this; that a man lays down His life for another. John 15:13.

 

Because I love you. Because you matter to me. Because I want YOUR suffering and the suffering of your relatives to end. I offer my life willingly. No one is taking it from me.

 

So,

 

GET UP!

 

STAND UP!

 

FIGHT BACK!

 

YOUR PEOPLE NEED YOU!

 

George Rolph.

Petitions Against Austerity & Other Useful Links:

It isn’t enough anymore to sit and drink tea and dunk biscuits you can ill afford.  Complaining to your neighbours won’t change anything.  If we don’t stand up and be counted, there’ll be no one left to count, except the wealthier folks of our society of course and their hefty tax rebates.  There are plenty of e-petitions circulating the internet that would benefit from having your name added to them…100k signatures each means they can be presented to parliament and our collective voice will be heard.  So below are some such links…click them, read the blurb and finally, get off your arses and actually DO something about the cruel situation many of us find ourselves in.

Rumour has it, on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, that our public posts are being “watched” by government employees wishing to minimise any damage our “honesty” might cause them.  Whilst I know not the truth about these rumours, I can confirm that several of my posts have already vanished and thus, I have decided to write here more often instead.  One was never given a voice to remain silent.

And while benefits are slashed by billions and wages are frozen, MP’s have requested a 32% pay increase at the expense of the taxpayer…and that’s after claiming over £89m in expenses already this year.

They induce fear with their rules so the general public obey them; they demote any politician who stands up against the cuts and Great British mentality is allowing them to get away with such atrocities.  You won’t be able to obey or disobey when they’ve taken every penny off you, when you’ve sold your belongings in order to survive, when you’re homeless because you couldn’t afford to pay your rent, your Bedroom Tax, your Council Tax.  The way I see it…what have you to lose by backing the campaigns against the Tories other than what they’re forcing you to lose already?  At least fall with your dignity instead of by their dictation.
