MALALA—a statement of the failure of religion:
religion that fails to pro-actively promote the absolute equality of male and female is fundamentally 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)

OCTOBER 2019
ON 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 state of 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 the EU 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.

Vagaries will arise from time to time due to a variety of program upgrades that are taking some time to interact. So one ploughs on, irritated with being side-tracked by technicalities.

Glad he did something useful in the end but it does raise the issue of how his evil manifested: neurological dysfunction from birth, arguably a God/Creation fault, therefore not his; parental failing in upbringing; combination of upbringing and socity's general dysfunction? The issue remains to be resolved. [Death in prison of baby abuser.]

Let's start by being calm and objectively reviewing. The House of Commons FAILED to defend the British people from loss of sovereignty over their own realm. Politicians have proved they could have prevented this loss of sovereignty because they have just carried out the appropriate actions to deliberately deny us regaining our sovereignty. Politicians do not understand basic management. FACT. The EU twice refused to allow uys to join because they did not think our inherent culture made us compatible--they were right! Competent management would have then ensured the government presented all the facts and then offered a referendum. The Common Market itself had already assessed our invalidity, but government did not issue a Referendum until after forty years of chaos had been ensured would be demanded to regain what we had lost. In 1649 we started brining the Lords under our control until the Commons became supreme. Now it is time to abolish the Commons. The Lords contain competence through previous ministers, accepted authorities: church (widened to include other faiths); law; trades union representatives; management ditto; health etc. Various methods can be used for representation. Lords decide main issues and we all vote from home electronically. Simple and straight forward!

Tomorrow commiserates the battle of Hastings but being us we made something from it!

Morning world. Got up... exhausted! Went back to bed. Try again a little later, obviously going to be one of those days!

Evening. Dull grey sky with darker grey clouds scudding across, bearing ever heavier bouts of rain. It may be autumn but it is more of a winter scene and I am glad to be in. Sorry for those still commuting home, especially those on bikes. Take care you are not pushed into the traffic passing alongside you by gusts of wind.

Excellent, well done. Sorry you consider it necessary, it should not be, another failure of too many men.

Including all those strikes of which their supporters are so?

This is unacceptable and plain stupidity! Referring to irresponsibility of our Civil Service towards EU people.
 
I thought the whole purpose was to show how easy it was to live in the open cold? How much else are they lying about?

Laughs Galore! Why on earth were you counting them indeed! They simply are--quite sufficient in themselves. As for Karen she is an absolute delight. I am sure they all drive their "parents" up the wall at home, makes me glad I'm a bachelor. At the same time I am sure they bring superb dream times to a home. While I understand there is a certain amount of "free response" to situations as they feel like it I suspect those kids are pretty savvy and are well self-disciplined when filming. Interesting. Writing on TV programme on a family with bright kids playingx freely interpreted characters.

Just tweeted "Quite correct. Parliament failed to raise the issue when we lost our sovereignty now it is wilfully blocking our regaining it, setting itself in opposition. Totally unfit. We need a complete re-organisation. Abolish Commons! Vote electronically from home!" In response to a tweet that claims research has found a major number of Brits will blame parliament for a failure of Brexit going through in time--already late from 31st March 2019.

“Democracy is about separation of powers. No understanding of why separation of powers is essential (or even what it is) equals zero understanding of democracy (and ultimately zero appreciation of democracy). This deficit of understanding is now killing us as a society in the UK.” Matthew F. Smith’s opinion in reply to The Guardian’s report, to which I replied “As exemplified by the Commons refuting Brexit while not murmuring concern over loss of sovereignty when it happened, the principle cause of our present crisis.”

Wednesday 9th October 2019
David Edgerton, Hans Rausing professor of the history of science and technology and professor of modern British history at King’s College London concludes an article in The Guardian thus: “Brexit is a necessary crisis, and has provided a long overdue audit of British realities. It exposes the nature of the economy, the new relations of capitalism to politics and the weakness of the state. It brings to light, in stunning clarity, Brexiters’ deluded political understanding of the UK’s place in the world. From a new understanding, a new politics of national improvement might come; without it we will remain stuck in the delusional, revivalist politics of a banana monarchy.” I have great sympathy with his views and somewhat piece-meal have so alluded previously. Here is the full article.

My previous comment on this situation had been to abolish the House of Commons. The time for that place to excite its position was at the point at which we lost our sovereignty. It didn't. Now the people have categorically stated their views this place has determined it will stop them. Time we, the people stopped this place! Use the Lords alone, forget the hereditaries but elected appointees of various business management, trades unions and former government ministers; including the church as presently composed plus other denominations. Commons replaced by us voting electronically from home. How's that for a modern representative government?

Now Extinction Rebellion is getting quite ridiculous and turning people away from the whole principle. The latest idea of wilful disruption for a fortnight gives not a damn for those who must work and be responsible for young children. Time constraints are crucial to some of their existences and people and their safety who rely upon them.

Christianity failed in the beginning, due to its supposed humanity which wasn't properly exercised (too many egoists) and communism left out humanity from its objective and detached clinical analysis. Attitude changes are necessary, posted in response to notices on the SALT conference.

           “Rory Stewart. Now resigned from the Tory Party after being a candidate for leader. Wow! is that not a completely self serving attitude, particularly as he now declares himself as a candidate for the London Mayor election as an independent? Wow again! What next? Will someone please ask him a question? How much property, does either he or his friends, own in Europ? Was this multi-layered  involvement his reason for not supporting the DEMOCRATIC referendum vote to leave the EU? If I may be permitted that self-same question, it should be asked of all those, elected by the accepted and paid for by the public approved democratic process of their election to an expense-free living in the EU. Who now oppose the DEMOCRACY of the LEAVE WITHOUT ANY QUESTION WHATSOEVER of the Parliamentary question known as BREXIT? Guess What? Whoever you ask you will not get a proper answer. Self servers will remain but hopefully not until after the next General Election as they may need to then apply for a proper job.

It surprised me as I had expected them to win. Very disappointing, although given the length of time they had, there is personal responsibility for one's "going out of this world" but I cannot say I have been especially brilliant in that either. [commenting on WASPI loss of pensions claim.]

Deeply sad but an interesting reminder of the true nature of Communist China, highlighted by Hong Kong, which is NOT inflammatory towards China but simply showing China's ineptitude in basic government by appointing the inept Carrie Lam, who hasn't a clue about representing the people.

So, we move on, ageing is a sad business. Today I have decided not to renew my annual subscription to the Chartered Management Institute, although as a retiree it is a very low subscription but "MCMI" is no longer really relevant. CMI absorbed the British Institute of Management and there seemed, at the time, no point in continuing with the specialist Institute of Printing Management, a separate annual fee after acquiring appropriate qualifications. BA(Hons) remains for life with no fees and GCSEs were forgotten long ago. So, what have I to show for life? Time to reflect and plan for the future. Plan? Yes, there is no death, merely existence in a different form and a different state with which we are already inter-related if we have been living a full life, widely aware of what is going on around us. Tomorrow I see a specialist about my hearing and on Monday I see a consultant about the latest tests on my eyes. The body in which I have resided these last 76 years is disintegrating but I trust I will be sensitively aware of the call home when that world is ready for me. Over the years I have communicated now and again, as the mood and sensitive awareness has prompted me in moments of quietude and contemplation.

Good after-noon world. WARNING Even BT can be spammed. Yes, I know, who would choose BT? Which? does give them one of the lowest company ratings for customer satisfaction. I thought I was reasonably on the ball but older age, reviewing my life and seemingly discovering a gentler side, not quite as alert as I thought I was.
Fortunately my innate questioning attitude started a rumbustious exchange with 'BT' telling them I did not like their attitude, their email was atrocious and also irresponsible in the information it was seeking, sent by letter to a director. It wasn't BT! Referred to a senior customer executive, it was fraud and appropriate actions enabled.
Nothing given away. What "gave the game away" was insistence that failure to perform would cause automatic disconnection. The old Such came immediately to the fore, hence the tirade. "P Such requires and your place in society is to jump to my tune. Do so immediately! P Such still alive and on the ball! Which is a pity because he had thought he was mellowing nicely.

Highly amusing that the French should apologise to us today for William the Conqueror's high-handed arrogance. [In reference to a Facebook post that apologies should be offered for our ancestor’s historical aggressive acts.

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 past 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.
