Six days from Christmas 2017 Its been 1914 and yet..........

Six days from Christmas 2017 Its been 1914 and yet..........


Its 1914 again and yet it is not. Europe is riven by nationalism, simplistic answers sweep over the continent. People are abused for being unpatriotic , a simplistic idea of loving ones country and hating others is being used. Fears of terrorism are everywhere and yet we have never been less likely to be blown up. In America Trump fills the swamp with man eating plutocrats, he rewards his followers in the rust belt by Exon Mobile executives, Gordon Geko types who will depress their wages further and de-skill them even more. The baying of Tory MPs use UKIP lite sounds . It is revealed that UK made cluster bombs are being used by the Theocratic state of Saudi Arabia (our allies that have cut of ten times as many heads as Isis} are being used in the Yemen. In the UK a new bitterness sweeps across the land, the leavers having won the referendum turn their attention to the unemployed, the sick, the vulnerable and the different...yes its 1914 and yet.......
We have a multi party democracy, there are clear differences between the parties once more, yet in the polls the parties are balanced in support across the country. A minority government is supported by the whims of an Irish Party stagger on day by day

The UK itself is under strain, Scotland, Wales is going one way, and the South East another I am fed up with the bleating of patriotic kippers and the far right. They seem incapable of realising that to be proud of something then something has to be done, achieved, celebrated. Sure that can be Shakespeare, Milton, Bertrand Russel and not the simplistic acts of bluekipperd. What is this patriotic white working class they dreams of as he leads it to a privatised health service and lower wages? The education system is failing because we are seeking to create adocile workers, unable to challenge the big lies put about by a right wing press. Its getting harder for working class males to go to university because the education system is not designed to help create joined up thinking or how to think critically.

And yet it is not 1914 there are many possibilities, more are rebelling than ever, social media offers both a blessing and a curse. The left has a been reborn and the scales are falling off the eyes of the rust belt voters, and of those hypnotised by the kippers. It offers us a great deal if we would remember the old suffragette cry “ I would rather be a rebel than a slave" or Rosa Luxembourg`s comment 'That those who dont move never feel their chains'. The discourse changes and the paradigm changes as the broflakes feel the pressure and experience white fragility on Brexit Isle realising that despite everything they have not won anything...
