MALALA—a statement of the failure of religion:
religion that fails to pro-actively promote the absolute equality of male and female is fuodamentally immoral and unfit for decent society.
There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:26-28)
Diversity within unity and change over time is the reality of Creation. Peter Such, poet and writer (1943–)
Neither praise nor shoot the messenger: the message is all.

OCTOBER 2017
AFTER THE EU, SEE MOVING ON

GENERAL AND COMMENTARY INDEX
THE EU QUESTION
and MOVING ON

NEVER FORGET
It was Labour and the Lib/Dems that denied us the political vote that turned commercial agreements on trade into political authoritarian diktat. As Churchill said "Trust the British people". Labour refused to do so and the Tories took too long to get round to doing so. Neither presented a competent argument.
We would have had a perfectly harmonious relationship with the EU had France not panicked over the greater empire and commonwealth that we created, for which reason they denied us earlier entry and ensured the rationality and logic we would have brought was excluded from the EU's basic structure, leading them away from proper objectives.

CONTINUING INADEQUACY OF EDUCATED MEN
AND WOMEN
An amusing thought: "Life is a four-letter word." -Lenny Bruce, comedian and social critic (13 Oct 1925-1966)

Personal Accountability
must accept the freedom of contrary views, not only to hold and express them freely and unchallenged but to be protected from deliberate discouragement. To oppose in context is one thing but to deliberately oppose in an open public environment is completely different. In an article by The Independent, on a London council's legal argument between users of a council provided health clinic and those opposed to peoples' freedom to exercise personal health choices, a photograph [https://static.independent.co.uk/s3fs-public/styles/story_medium/public/thumbnails/image/2017/10/05/18/anti-abortion1.jpg] depicted men being involved in the protest. What on earth were they doing there? They obviously have nothing to do with any of the females attending the clinic; we are currently in the news turmoil of a moneyed male abusing his position to assault women and the photographed men are clearly ganging up with women against other women, their presence intended to further emphasise male dominance and arrogance in female issues, just like the Catholic church! In the Catholic church the men (no women priests) behave so irresponsibly as to deny women the common sense of "safe" sex, causing many of the problems calling for the need of such clinics. Hardly an advert for the women's cause, which is specifically designed against other women holding a different view point to their own, a point of view in which they clearly have little faith of argument since they need the bullying profile of men to support them. Effectively, in having those men there they are admitting they have lost their own argument.

Morning world! So, two different reports of one meeting by the two people that were at it! Typical EU, totally divorced from reality, the very reason we are leaving. Hammond is of concern seemingly having failed to make financial preparation for a WTO exit, just as Cameron failed to cover the contingency of the Referendum result: total Tory foul up!

A WORLD IN CHAOS!

Suddenly, the UK is at the forefront of idiocy and is still occluded from the news. The Conservative party conference's endeavours to show rational stability is overshadowed by more executives incapable of basic management; Monarch airlines crashes financially, grabbing the news headlines. In parallel, the US broadcasts another nutcake thrusting his arrogance with a machine gun. Where is news of the Tory party conference?
     Spain presumes to run Gibraltar and found almost one hundred percent of Gibraltarians wish to stay British when rationally asked for their opinion. So Spain makes certain their own people, for whom they are directly responsible, should be denied the options we British gave to Scotland and Ireland. Yes, we took some time getting it right in Ireland, not just from 1916 but arguably way back to the great famine [1845–1849]. The Spanish do and don't believe in history, hence their confused responses, currently seemingly to ape our mistakes in 1916. So much for concepts that the EU, politicising a "straight forward" commercial arrangement, would solve Europe's problems. It is causing them! The EU still cannot cope with a changing scenario, everything must be rigid and unmoveable. Despite their conviction the world is not yet completely dead.

PREVIOUS MONTHS 
It was Labour's socialism that determined acceptance of the EU's diktats without argument because it took away their accountability for what they knew the country would not accept. All that is happening now is the rational debate Labour were not capable of holding.

PARLIAMENTARY WORK AHEAD
Boundary clarification. How many seats and what preferred size of constituency population?

Proportional representation. Which system?

House of Lords? Should it be elected or appointed and upon what classification? Originally based on the realities of the day: Spiritual; Legal; Defence; land ownership; hereditary entitlement.

Today? Spiritual but across the faiths (define), including pure secularism/humanitarianism (all appointed/elected by their respective churches); Legal, as is; Political (variable by proven worth, such as pa  st ministers or retired professional senior civil servants and limited party nominations); representatives of Capital, Financial Services, Labour (all either retired or active, appointed or elected by their respective accredited bodies); Education (ditto precedents stated); Health (ditto); Other?

The whole re-viewable by a statutory committee reporting with recommendations to parliament on a ten yearly basis to cover relevance of classifications in the then current world. Modus operandi as at present.

I am delighted he demonstrates his Christian belief by showing his humility in acknowledging he's only of any use in second place.

He who blames his tools is admitting he's no damned good at the job.

Nice to have a journalist who has a trend to send himself up competently. Reminds me of one Talbot Rothwell and the actor Brian Rix who most successfully confused people as to which Whitehall theatre was providing the funniest show. Totally irrelevant to politics but a quietly amusing article.

What he is admiring is egocentricity to the point Blair filled MP seats with people following him not the party members who provided them with their opportunities. The LibDems are equally egocentric: determined to thrust their view in direct defiance of its rejection.
