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 are taking some time to interact. So one ploughs on, irritated with being side-tracked by technicalities.

Tuesday 30th July 2019i
Interesting day. I knew I had problems to face on Monday and rattled through them Monday morning, then slept. Delayed on one and left it for today. Discovered a post on Tring citizen's “everything Tring” site which seemed ideal. I was following through and sensed I could get him immediately. That was the case, he had found a client was not as ready for him as was intended so suddenly had the after-noon free. I had several options from elsewhere with whom I had not sensed a jelling and grabbed him, seeing the many compliments paid to him on that site.
          Forty minutes later he was with me, problem analysed, sorted, so I discussed a couple of other outstanding but nonurgent matters with him and he'll come back to me with a price for them with which I am sure I am not going to have any problem. Highly recommended. [Inlight Electrical Services Limited]. Great relief with the growing dark evenings, I have working ceiling lights again.

Morning world, P Such Esq. reporting in. Monday was expected to be problematic but many problems were overcome and today I seem to have solved a hiccup on my web, which I had thought derived from the server side breakdown during my absence but derives from a singularly problematic URL link in my update, the first of several belated adjustments to be done.

I use it! It is a matter of personal style: I disagree with the spaces, we are now in the age of electronic print and it is unnecessary [as in fact it always was, to a printer]. Commenting upon Rees-Mogg's grammar preferences, neatly presented here.

Sunday 28th July 2019
Morning world, one P Such Esq. reporting in, in a somewhat exasperated mood. Everything going wrong but perversely my instinctive bloody-mindedness comes to the fore and I feel roused to argue! The past week has been challengingly exciting, more anon but apparently my web site went down over my absence and while the server’s admin responded quickly to my alert, they appear not have reloaded the latest version—or is it that I am more behind than I thought? Health erraticism has caused delays in many things but for the moment I am energised. [Turns out I have been so absorbed in me and immediate needs I have not uploaded since the 1st!
          Doubtless why only 4,000 have been checking in on me instead of my usual 5,000+ a month.

Pause for thought: "unknown man and girl" lost in the vastness of time, yet suddenly widely noticed irrevocably. Response to an historical society print of man and girl looking at Berkhamsted castle moat in 1897.

In response to Facebook post: "Would more people attend church if the sermons were funnier? Or is there no place for humour in worship? Karen Gibson visits a comedy class for clergy and we want to hear your thoughts." My comment: It is religion that has killed God, His Creation is a state of continual change through time. Man's arrogance, at first interpreting God to maintain the presumption of their assumed authority over all, failed to make such recognition through the ego of being unable to admit their earlier ignorance in their original interpretations; particularly in their acceptance of women and their presumption God is male as opposed to being sexually indefinable. Sex is for the soul in the body, not the body assigning sex to the soul, although those spirits with whom I have spoken have merely retained the sex of their immediate past lives but I believe I had spoken to a spirit who had experienced both sexes in different lives. I need to refer to my notes, hence the workload I have.

Saturday 27th July 2019
In reply to Facebook supporting the Conservatives great achievements. It is this link I have had to remove as it would not break acceptably over line endings.
            In response: But a Conservative government that created the situation from past years of austerity. Not being austere on the right items. Always fight back from the very start, be alert and always question.

The EU's chief Brexit negotiator says the PM's plan to scrap the Northern Ireland backstop is "unacceptable".
             So what? The EU is unacceptable to us, that's why we are leaving, although that dislike could have been engendered by the fact our own politicians never asked for our opinions until three years ago. There has been an interaction on Facebook with a friend who complained I made my points imperceptibly, which I do not accept. The situation is very clear, it is the British electorate that determines who runs our country, we or foreigners across the water? The moment the EU became political was the moment we lost unique control of our own country about which we were never asked, until nearly forty years later and they had their answer. Now what is being revealed is the extent to which our own people are wilfully letting their individual little egos bully us like past irresponsible monarchs whom we have put down as the need arose. As also the upstart Common Man whose ego over-rode his relevance and we restored the monarchy in a unique democratic fashion. That democratic state has adapted to time's requirements but now needs a major review. That is the value of the EU and the wilful arrogance and presumption of our own elected politicians—they too now require being brought to heel and in their behaviour they have pointed out to us the errors of their ways and their over-indulgence in bigoted opinions divorced from sense.

Commenting on Rees-Moggs' grammar style. In principle but I don't agree with all. If I remember correctly the typing code was one space after a comma, two after colon/semicolon and three after a full stop. Damned nuisance when intended for digital reading for type-setting. Printers attribute space evenly throughout the line [when justified setting, or fixed mid space when setting ragged right] and all spaces are even by default, except when dealing with maths. Would be interested to know his views on the "Oxford comma".
            Reference was later made to Hansard quoting his breaking his own rules: “May be in VIth form but schools do not usually teach that rules are meant to be broken through the use of common sense and seeing the detail in the context of the whole.”

In answer to a Facebook post of someone continually receiving publicity from the Tories despite stating they don't want to see it. On politics I'm simply all over the place. I've missed only two elections during my life, one general and one local, due to absences abroad and over time have voted for all serious parties: my decisions are "of the moment". "Of the moment" small time little people decided we would be manipulated into accepting the EU and having given the people the open choice to say other small minded little people are denying our choice through their little egos. Currently that is all parliament can offer us. Labour argue over semantics, less intelligently than Jacob Rees-Mogg (I haven't yet bought The Daily Mail and read him) but I'm guessing Rees-Mogg's arguments are more valid. The Lib-Dems don't know who they are or what they are doing, their local paper is simply headed "The Democrat". We had a democratic vote to leave the EU so they are determined we will stay. 'nough said! They haven't a clue whether they are coming or going or just went.

BORIS IS PM
So, has the Tory party more idiots than rationals, or is Boris really up to it? Time will tell but on the possibility he has practical rationality lies the country's future and the Tories having any chance of re-election any when.

Simply because the EU is panicking. There has been wilful manipulation from the beginning that we will be pushed unnoticing into agreement without that agreement actually being asked for. There has been a conspiracy to manipulate us. Second, politicians do not understand basic management. A manager would have laid a referendum the moment the EU moved from business management to politicalisation. May missed end of March, and then April, she can't manage, she's a politician. Were she capable of managing, her failures should all have been envisaged and countered before they happened.

Boris does make some rational comments, unfortunately lost in over fluidity of his potential as a writer of fiction. Is he intending to retire soon and write?

Lost count of time
From a Facebook post. "While you were so worried socialism had stolen your freedoms, Capitalism stole your pension, took your savings, sent your jobs overseas, robbed you of health care, dismantled the educational system and put you in debt, leaving you your racism, xenophobia, hate and guns."
             Not an unreasonable view in Trump America today and something of which we are concerned in the UK regarding our NHS in our US commercial relations; but our NHS derived from a socialist government and many of our charities were founded by very rich people being socialist in their outlooks.

As are we all, we are all as we choose to find ourselves and how many find themselves before moving on? [women maintaining maiden name in Scotland].

Monday 15th July 2019
Clearly the woman's motives [Gina Miller, https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2281513/gina-miller-brexit-boris-johnson/] are questionable but so is parliament's. The country is split but by a majority we are leaving, is parliament truly representative of the people or are they merely small time egoists thrusting their personal egos out of touch with reality?

Standard procedure for all competent drivers, walk round your vehicle checking your tyres before getting in to drive. My latest car (Toyota Yaris) tells me on the dashboard if my tyres are insufficiently inflated

Moving on! Superb last day at Wimbledon, yesterday the women simply got on with it as women do, all over in under an hour while the men made one hell of an argument that seemed to go on for more than four hours! Then there was the women's final pairs. Clear weather all fortnight. Reminds me of summers I remember when at school.

The final of finals. Yesterday women's final and I prefer watching women and today the men's final. As yesterday, no sparkling wine but Champagne but then no £50 bottles, far too meagre but it is the 'real' thing with real strawberries, thick double cream, a comfortable chair and I am away for the duration.

Saturday 13th July 2019
On government leaks: it now appears they were complaining about the leak being revealed: seriously dodgy; if worrying about the content of the leak, that is questionable.

Morning. Apparently it is Saturday and all day long! I thought Saturday was yesterday. Nice to find I've gained a day, or had I lost the previous days of the week? Possibly beginning to get with it. Tennis nearly over and next week the Proms season begins. Summer advances and autumn looms but family trips ahead, for which I seem likely to be fit and able are encouraging. At least, for the moment, I have a clear head but fatigue is still fatigue and slows everything up.

Thursday 11th July 2019
First time I've had the chance to see through Queen's, Eastbourne and now Wimbledon. There is no question Wimbledon is the crème de la crème and being so far fortunate with the weather there is nothing like it, I'm sure all there really appreciate how fortunate they are to make it.
            I'm not usually interested in doubles, mixed or otherwise but there has been some extraordinarily brilliant playing which applies across the board. Male/female singles have been absolutely brilliant and the state and calibre of teenagers beyond belief.

On a Facebook post in simply “keeping my house front clean”. Be careful if you are thinking of keeping the pavement clear of ice in the winter. There are potential legal implications in the event of an accident following a slip on "unnatural" pavement surface.

In reply to a Facebook post on Sir Kim Darroch.
Quite right, the Boris is unfit for intended purpose, as most of the Conservative party will prove they are by electing him. Everyone is missing the point. It has nothing whatever to do with Sir Kim Darroch, it has everything to do with the insecurity of the British Civil Service that once was regarded as the best in the world and which, since EU interference has gone completely to pieces: how else did the Windrush palaver happen but for the British Civil Service failing to remember it is fundamentally a British community of nations (the Commonwealth) as we really are and it is the EU that has wilfully created dreams of a different existence for us.

In reply to a Facebook post on women’s football.
Bravo you, I cannot remember what the argument was over but I remember having a blazing row with my father over something in which I was taking my younger sister. "You can't do that with your sister with you!" "Why not? If she wants to it's her choice, why shouldn't she?" "She's a girl!" "What's that got to do with it?" "Don't be so damned stupid my boy!" I'd like to think that proved I was a little ahead of my time. I've always supported women doing precisely as they damned well please. For the first time in my life I have been watching football, despite it being the cricket season: I've been watching Women's football. A great disappointment to my father, who loved and played many sports (army life helped) and retired obtained international status in hockey (umpiring).

Clearing out this morning, before my sneezes side-tracked me, it has been a slow discovery of things I had forgotten I possessed and am glad I kept. Slightly picking up this after-noon, so hope for sufficient energy tomorrow. For now, not as much done as I would have liked but moving on.

Good after-noon world! Regular heavy sneezing in mornings, midday and evenings, hay-fever? Pollen count is high. Change from my teens, eyes and nose streaming and permanently on as heavy a dose of anti-histamine, sometimes forced to exceed and I used an expensive anti-histamine that reportedly (and effectively for me) did not cause drowsiness, essential during the exam period. So I sympathise for those of much younger ages who are yet to benefit as I am now and as my mother (also a sufferer) was already experiencing, the benefit of age "you'll grow out of it!". Cheers!

Monday 9th July 2019
In response to a Facebook post on an Iranian woman being sentenced to 38 years in prison and 148 lashes for speaking out against Iranian law ordering the wearing of the hijab [the style of dress that makes such women look like walking pillar boxes as Boris Johnson once said].
           I don't like using the angry symbol on Facebook as I regard it as a negative reaction, anger gets us nowhere. Clear-thinking, with a positive reaction is what is needed but while we may be tolerant of different views, especially in other countries our own country supports, if only by non-opposition, various attitudes of thinking are basically unacceptable in our traditional ways of living. The Catholic church still refuses to accept women priests and there are many male-oriented biases in other religions. Basically, these are unacceptable but we remain silent.

Good after-noon. Unashamedly self-indulging: reasonably sized TV screen; strawberries; cream; sparkling wine; well-upholstered, multi-moveable armchair—I am ensconced for the duration! There is a more serious side, it takes awhile for a new drug routine to filter through. Am I picking up, or is it a "one-off" moment? Wednesday, a much desired luncheon, haven't managed London for too long, will I make it?

On a complaint against proceedings against Assange.
Very naïve, Assange broke the rules, as did a youth recently mowing down a four-years old girl at 85mph in a 30mph limit and there is outrage at the minimalism of his sentence. Ignore proper penalties for infractions and the whole of society begins to slide. a) evidence? When did we have a public referendum on it? b) The court ruled, against which there is permitted appeal. A judicial process rules a fine against BA, it will appeal. All standard procedure within the system. Where's your problem?

Thursday 4th July 2019
Am in full empathy with you, although my involvement derives from spiritual exploration; that all spirituality embraces the sentiments of both male and female, whose separateness derives solely from the practicality of the earth plane's required physicality. While in those few communications I have entered into where spirits have maintained the physicality of their last earth experience, there have been a very few interactions with those who have experienced both sexes through successive different lives.

I am sorry you felt dispirited by the experiences you quote, so let me tell you that I am frequently enlightened by your sharing of your experiences, like now. [Can't think what that was responding to but the principle remains—sharing

Should have brought out such ideas thirty years ago and led gently into them in an organised manner. [I think this related to the way retirement ages were re-calculated [particularly for women)].

Comfortably switched out; no strawberries today, I believe in variety and abstention is variable; computer switched on to add to shopping list. It's not a great screen size for today but serves my need and is way beyond B&W sizes before dreams of colour. Was B&W really that watchable, especially when switched out in reclining chair, with vivid, neatly trimmed grass? All so very English, natural and normal.

Man's an idiot, it's the sort of damned fool thing Boris would do: Hunt's supposed to show contrasts with him, not similarities for stupidity!

Monday 1st July 2019
Vaguely with it, still countering medical mismatch but fighting back. Queen's slightly disappointing, Eastbourne pretty good and now Wimbledon is under way. Halfway through the year and evenings are beginning to draw in but strawberries, cream and sparkling wine still on the menu... save my taste buds are playing havoc with reality and too much remain aspiration. Aah well, much for which still to be thankful.

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.
