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)

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 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.

Vagaries will arise from time to time due to a variety of program upgrades that take awhile to interact.

Many people keen to promote voting in EU election. Well done! Good positive thinking, vote out fast, we're already late! Another failure in UK understanding of basic management: northern trains late, cross rail late, Brexit late; since the EU involvement this country has generally fallen to pieces.

CONSERVATION
You raise a good point we are into a "war" situation in which we have much past experience: reduced lighting; double summer time; may be rationing? We have only touched upon the enormity we have to face.

ON OUR OWN POLITICIANS ACTUALLY DOING AS THEY WERE TOLD
Would they really? Our own politicians have spent 40 years avoiding doing what they all knew was wanted, BREXIT. That's why they refused to put the question until Cameron, so out of touch with reality, he thought we would agree!

Evening world, reflecting on the way the world wags. Weekend away was great with family in a lovely hotel and a couple of sightseeing visits. The weather was not as comfortable as the previous weekend but all in all we were lucky with the weather. Rushed off my feet, prior to going but I made sure time was on my side. My printer had broken down with work to be done and in looking for some ink for a final try with it I discovered my local store was closing down. The staff had no knowledge of where next but they seemed they would be given fair notice and options. Consequently a printer, more or less fitting my next decision, was at a 20% discount so I made an instant decision. I wished the chap who loaded it into my car the best for what lay ahead for him.
           Being retired, if still working but for myself, I sympathised with the staff and felt fortunate but I too had twice been in major crisis with employment during my own normal working life. I had checked the printer’s weight and thought I could carry it but barely got it to the door from the car and I had stairs to get up. My workspace was over-crowded, due to having cleared space for redecoration elsewhere. I left the printer just inside the front door, having to clamber my holiday needs over it. Getting it up the stairs was an after holiday problem!
            Back refreshed, I reviewed my problems, realising I was getting weak in my old age. It was not normal weakness but the effect of various health problems causing general deterioration. Then I remembered a foldup trolley in the loft. Can I manage the loft? In there was a wealth of unresolved work to clear and time was moving on beyond my ability to handle. Perseverance uncovered the trolley, a purchase for a specific use and retained to cover future possibilities. It solved the up the stairs load problem and undoubtedly encouraged by such success I found the energy to lift it off the floor to the desk.
           That brought other thoughts, showing my instinctive advance thinking. The furniture I had was solid enough to take the heavier printer and thus stirred I realised how much I had not been too bad at envisaging what my life would require and how it might shape out. I had not got everything right, I had after all envisaged marrying and having a family. However, I was recharged and further invigorated. That is one of my problems, the extent to which the physical incites depression but downs are to be challenged, they are an excuse to justifiably kick butt and move on again.

 

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.
