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)

JUNE 2019

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.

JUNE
I am astounded that I have been so involved with my health I failed to post two months. May was at its end as far as weekly updates but had not been polished off as complete, whereas June had not been uplifted from my daily word documentary at all, basically a summation of my Facebook posts and no building weekly posts at all. So here is June in one go.
     Over-excited, irrational response for cool, calm collectedness. The sole purpose of our politicians thrusting the EU down our throats is to avoid addressing our basic national faults, that our leadership in national democracy has stalled. We stalled at Lisbon, at which point we should have held the referendum we did three years ago. They withheld it for forty years because they knew the answer, until lame duck Cameron came along, totally out of touch with reality and thought he'd get "yes" when more than half the country had always known it was "no". We have been wilfully manipulated by our own people and system who do not understand basic management. The fuss and palaver of disengaging is entirely due to failure of basic management from the beginning, failure to ask the people regarding their sovereign integrity. Simple. All life is simple and straight forward if you treat it openly and honestly.

Totally pissed off! We all make mistakes and one of the most regular ones could be trusting other people how ever much life's indications show we are normally right to do so. But things are not normal. Throughout the country we are upside down and back-to-front! Medicines come through different wholesalers and in different packaging and when a pharmacist labels something you assume the inside is what the label says! Wrong. Very simply I have been deteriorating over the last month requiring various analyses. Will discuss with GP next week and he could have found other things (I am very variable) but I may have found the answer! Slowness of mind (due to fatigue) did not let me pick it up earlier but today I asked the question, what are the tablets, the box says 1mg, the label says 5mg. They are 1 mg. I have reduced my drug intake by 4mg a day for the last month... suddenly! No wonder I can't think straight!

Good evening world and what turmoil but then, what is life if something exciting is not happening most of the time? I am struck by the excitement of those seeking the leadership, while keeping an eye on the opportunities, if not themselves successful, of the supporting roles to be offered by he/she who succeeds. Like any good trout stream, there is more under the surface than the glint of evening light that catches the casual eye. I am delighted at the number of middle aged youth, realising the potential of their opportunities, while my health confirms I have entered the slower waters of the final years.
I may be emerging from nearly a month plus of the collective whole of me reappraising just "what the heck" of total uselessness is the collective assemblage I call myself! I seem disconnected and not really having a clue as to what the collective whole is supposed to be doing! It has been a month plus of "one of those days".

Lauren was driving to visit a friend, when an UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put its lights on. Lauren's parents had always told her never to pull over for an unmarked car, but rather wait until she got to a service station, etc. Lauren remembered her parents' advice, and telephoned 112.
This connected her to the police dispatcher, she told the dispatcher that there was an unmarked car behind her. The dispatcher checked to see if there was a police car where she was and there wasn't and he told her to keep driving, remain calm and that he had back-up already on the way. Soon 4 police cars surrounded her and the 'unmarked car'.
           They pulled the guy from the car... the man was a convicted rapist and was wanted for other crimes. I never knew that bit of advice, but especially for a woman alone in a car, you do not have to pull over for an UNMARKED car. Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going to a 'safe' place. You obviously need to make some signals that you acknowledge them, ie. put on your hazard lights or call 112.
           So now it's your turn to let your friends know about 112 (112 is an emergency number on your mobile that takes you straight to the police because 999 does not work if you have no signal). 
This is good information that I did not know! Please pass on to all your friends, especially any females

A long stated divergence from relevance to the question which you appear not to have put to him or else you would have shared his answer! Keep things simple. The EU is nothing to do with Europe, it is a political entity of some nations in Europe, Europe being a geographical area. The EU is a conflagration of those nations having won a war for their independence and creating a reasonably rational trading bloc then decided to politicise it which is why it is such a shambles.

Our own politicians, inflated with the ego of self-importance (a great failing of the EU and its diverse bits), knowing we British had more inherent common sense, deliberately made certain we were not asked if we wished to give up our own sovereignty and pool it with others, for whom we had fought to give them back their original independences!
           Three years ago they received the answer the whole world had expected and which they had known would be the answer which is why they never asked the question. "Right up the EU as far as we can ram it!" Simple, straight forward and typically British!
           Some, or the successors of some of these small time people, having lost the Britishness of "rendering service", have determined they will tell the rest of us what we will have because their arrogances tell them they know better. It is not that simple but is possible May has made a complete hash of things and the temporary stall is helpful. We shall see.

Interesting, Farage has just made a fuss and palaver over delivering a letter to 10 Downing Street. I know Royal Mail has lost status but it isn't that bad... is it? In any case he knocks on the door, not noticing there is a large brass letter box clearly engraved "First Lord of the Treasury'! Such simplicity is clearly beyond his ability!

Worried at time wasted but in making the most of life I admire the troubled sky I look out on through my window, casting various shades of light over the valley before me. I can see it, experience it and feel involved in the whole but exasperated that I am so totally exhausted I can do nothing but sit. It is one of those days! Many have worse problems, so I make the most of what I have and am grateful. Temperature 80ºF, I have two pullovers on and am still feeling cold! In my case: Diabetes [2] or Sjögren's syndrome? What the hell, just suffer and get on with it.

Andrew Marr, disappointing in his handling of Andrea Leadsom. Too anxious to get his views over hers. Seen too little of her until now.

Morning world. Well, we all have health and other problems so, moving on, driven up the wall by persistence with a football match yesterday abroad: it is now the cricket season for heaven's sake and Wimbledon next month! A change from football and apparently someone punched someone in New York, which fills "The Papers" for five minutes before the programme starts!

Gutlessness of British politicians persists as it has done since they made it clear they would not have any truck with the British people regarding their views on the EU and when they do ask for their opinions they are astonished at the response... which is the one they knew they would get and why they had specifically not asked for it!

On Boris
One way of putting him out of the running... or perhaps raising queries on his competence, or giving him a chance to prove his worth under pressure?
He is a personality whose ego over-rides the dignity of any office to which he perspires!

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.
