Racial AbuseRacial abuse is just bullying by ignorant people.
Its the same as gay bashing, class prejudice, football violence or gang fighting.
Ignorant people who pick on anybody who are slightly different.
Some people are so ignorant that they attack people from the next town when they come into their pubs.
This was turned into a racial or a gay issue by the PC zealots who obviously spend too much time in their
offices thinking about problems they don’t understand.
If you interact multiculturally you do not have this problem.
The PC brigade obviously do not mix multicuturally and have to make up stupid rules for their peanut brains.
Unfortunately these people are running the country.
BT to give the British/EU Government State Control of The Web.
A few months ago there was a news story about BT putting Chinese hardware into its 21CN
The story was that this was a threat to national security as the Chinese could bug the equipment
and either make it fail on request or to provide a back door entry for access to secure sites or to plant viruses.
The fact that this hardware was developed by the Huawei Corporation, which is linked to the
Chinese People's Liberation Army failed to alert the media to another side of the story.
The one thing that the Chinese government, the Huawei Corporation and the Army are renowned for,
is their ability and experience with hardware to control and limit free access to the World Wide Web.
Is the British government installing routing filters into the new BT 21CN system?
This could be yet another mis-configuration of the laws against terrorism which are actually being used
against the general population on a daily basis.
Just as the government sought to intercept and log all emails and mobile phone calls, it now intends to filter
the World Wide Web in Britain to restrict & control the freedom of the net.
Theoretically the current unregulated nature of the internet allows anyone unfettered access to illegal services,
to gain free access to porn videos or to support and assist in terrorist attacks against the state.
The main political reason for this step into the Orwellian nightmare is not terrorism but the imminent demise of terrestrial television and the ongoing move to on-demand ADSL internet streaming.
The advances in access to unregulated international news produced by the people for the people has brought the political classes and their power brokers out in a surge of paranoid control freakery.
The fact that the politicians will no longer be able to lie to the population on the BBC news every day and brainwash us poor mortals into the correctness of their obtuse manipulations has led them to conclude that the World Wide Web must be subjected to State Control.
The fact that they are creating a society not dissimilar to George Orwells 1984 seems to be of little consequence to them.
The Future is “On – Demand” TV
The digital debate is moving on now that James Murdoch has attacked the BBC licence fee.
In a way this debate is irrelevant because the speed of change in HD digital broadcasting
has already made fixed programme schedules look ancient.
If you have ever looked down your selection of 20 – 200 TV channels and wondered why there is
still nothing on you want to watch then your prayers are about to be answered.
Over the next five years there will be a scramble for the dominating technology of the future
to bring high definition television to your screens “On Demand”.
The new technologies will start a battle between the providers capable of bringing viewers
any programme they want at any time they want.
Already available on Youtube are playlists which allow you to make your own evenings entertainment.
You can already get films on demand from Sky via satellite.
And the BBC, ITV & Channel 4 have downloads and on demand catalogues.
A mixture of comedy, musical events and video clips are now available in High Definition
video for download or streaming.
You may say that you do not want to watch your television on a computer but then some
laptops have a dual monitor facility which means that you can plug it in to a full screen 32”
and the sound into your stereo audio system.
You can control your laptop/32” TV with a wireless keyboard and mouse.
So the technology already exists for on demand television .
It is now just a decision of sorting out the best way to stream the video content.
BT have crippled this country by failing to invest & upgrade the UK with fibre optical cables.
The government has considered taxing the population to provide this service (£6).
The problem with government is that they look at everything as another opportunity to fleece the population of yet more tax.
They are not looking for the best deal or the best technology, just the most tax.
It should be remembered that in the past our governments have sold off the television transmitters, the FM frequency bands and mobile phones channels.
All of these used to be owned by the BBC and were paid for by us as licencepayers.
As BT has refused to rewire the country maybe it should be done as part of the BBC licence fee.
But then this only leads to more confusion as to who owns what.
So the provider are lining up.....
It is worth pointing out that those of us who have recently switched to Digital Freeview will not be able to get “On Demand” via this system.
Digital terrestrial transmitters do not have the band width for HD or individual streaming.
The new technology will have to be through ADSL Broadband.
Fighting for dominance of the on demand service will be;
All the Internet Service Providers (ISPs)
On Line, BT, Virgin, BBC, ITV,Channels 4 & 5
Online: Youtube, Yahoo, Google, Microsoft.
Noticeably absent from this list is Sky. And this is probably the reason for Mr Murdoch's attack on the BBC.
The new on demand technology is going to give viewers complete choice.
This is the area where Sky has been leading the world.
But in the future it is possible Sky will be left behind by the BBC’s massive online presence.
If the future of HD streaming video is ADSL Broadband then Sky TV satellite is just another also ran,
competing for customers all over again.
The future of television is likely to be a mixture of providers.
Unless the government is stupid enough to make Broadband a tied service where your ISP decides what TV you watch.
And if the Internet maintains its original ethos of freedom, and integration is allowed to continue unfettered.
Then we will all be able to access TV from every provider and even from every country in the world.
The national and international implications of this are immense.
The main question is going to be whether our political state controllers will allow us this freedom.
Harriet Harman’s FairylandHarriet Harman’s position as a government minister is highly respected in some quarters.
She has even been touted as the next Prime Minister.
Her enthusiasm in handling TV interviews with confidence has shown that she has obvious talents
and the ability to learn and research all of the government’s areas of responsibility.
However, there is a something of the dreamer in Harriet.
She believes that she can create a perfect world by using the Human Rights Act
to promote equality in all things.
As the Minister for Women and Equality she has embarked upon a crusade to make
opportunities for everyone equal.
Now this is both a strange thing and an admirable target.
It would be a good thing if everyone was treated equally.
But your mind has to be in a very small box for you not to see any of the downfalls.
The most glaringly obvious failing of the Human Rights Act is that it promotes individual rights above Democratic principles.
As a philosophical document the Human Rights Act destroys the Democratic foundations of hundreds of years of the British Constitution..
It over rides the wishes of the electorate and the fundamental basis of British law and justice.
What is the point of voting in a Democratic election, in which the individual gives up their ‘individual rights’ to be represented by a collective champion (MP).
If that MP ignores the wishes (and individual rights) of a million people to uphold the rights of one person.
That is Democracy Destroyed.
I am afraid that only a very small mind, of which there are many in government, could fail to see this as a very destructive and badly thought out law.
The basis for equality is an ass that only works if you have everyone tied to the same tether.
You may promote equal rights for; women, transsexuals, homosexuals, the old, the disabled, multi racial, multi-faith but then noticeable absent are men.
And, of course, every time you promote someone up the ladder you are pushing somebody else down.
And eventually, when you have succeeded in making everyone equal, they have actually lost their individuality
In promoting equal wages for women in the public service the law has failed to acknowledge the most basic facts.
Firstly that this system worked and secondly that it was a contract of employment which all these women agreed to when they took the job.
In creating a public service full of women on equal pay, outside London, men have stopped becoming the main wage earner.
We have now become a society where the female public servant has negotiated the best job security, the best pensions and the best working conditions.
These women are now the new alpha class being in our society.
Wanted for their rock solid financial security.
Something that most males nowadays are excluded from.
This is the completion of years of gender bending in our education system where the alpha male has been ridiculed and derided in place of the more acceptable metrosexual office worker.
And while there are obvious cases where women’s rights are worth championing there are also millions of women who took the easy option to work in schools.
For instance, because it fitted in with their childcare responsibilities.
Or worked for local authorities because they could work part time or job share.
In truth this has not done women any favours.
They now find that they are expected to run a high stress career as well as running a family.
They have also lost their alpha males
The male that women really want to mate with.
No Confidence in Financial Integrity
Now that the banks have recovered from their fraudulent disasters
And the stock exchange has started to recover.
The ordinary public find that they have totally lost confidence in every form of finance.
We have long succumbed to the fraudsters in the pension, mortgage and investment companies.
And we have sullenly watched as the New Labour project enforced a thousand new stealth taxes
on us and then sneakily increased our Council Tax.
We now find that all the mistakes that the politicians have made over the last few decades
are coming home to roost.
And we are having to pay yet another raft of bills for their mistakes.
I refer to the cost of utility bills.
The whole point of selling the water, gas, electric, rail, companies and creating private companies
was just to shift the business from government control and make them more efficient.
I don’t remember there ever being an idea that the great British public
would be held to ransom in their own homes.
People in England now have no one who they can trust to be honest.
Every way they turn there are organisations trying to surcharge them.
The police with their speed cameras, the local authority with their car park taxes.
The public services with their pensions.
The banks and the utilities are just another few names in a long list of leeches living off the proceeds of fraud from the long suffering British population.
And still we have no laws to protect us..
Still these companies can send out fraudulent bills for inflated services.
Still these companies can hide behind the facade of legitimate business.
Just as the FSA failed to regulate the banks, now Ofgem, Ofcom, Ofwat etc fail to protect consumers.
It’s all a joke isn’t it, because when it comes down to it the fraudulent companies can take you to court for being unable to pay a bill.
But the companies themselves are not covered by the laws of fraud and theft.
In fact they are protected from the law by the very regulators who have supposedly been set up to protect our rights.
This is another example of the manipulation of the status quo by the government of the day.
Protecting the financial health of companies at the cost to the individual.
This is an obvious invasion of a person’s Human Rights.
Shareholders before consumers, company directors and employees before customers.
Pension funds inflated and assets legitimately stripped and the proceeds hidden in offshore accounts.
All within the law.
We are now faced by fraudsters in every walk of life, yet we are supposed to be honest.
A law for the rich and a law for the poor. Serfs and barons.
And who is supposed to be changing the laws to free us from this corruption?
Our unesteemed members of Parliament who are too busy fighting their own battles to worry about us.
The Illusion of Government
As our MP’s leave London for a three month holiday they are leaving the country in turmoil.
With the Brown government racked with dissent and unable to focus
With Parliament’s reputation in ruins
There is only one level that this forlorn government is performing well on.
And that is the illusion of government put out every day by our television news broadcasters.
The illusion that everything is okay.
Every day Gordon Brown puts out another headline grabbing initiative.
Yesterday was a big plan for the future of Britain’s green energy.
A £150 billion pound investment in green energy resources.
Its a fantasy. Its not even a credible idea. There is no money for it,
It’s just an idea thrown out to make the government look as if it is doing something good.
But it is not. It is stagnant. It is immobilised. It is unable to move in any direction.
Next year’s election has turned New Labour into a party of rabbits caught in the headlights.
Frozen in fear and ineptitude.
This is an election it knows it cannot win.
But the country needs direct action to sort out Labour’s mess.
Not A daily party political broadcast on behalf of the Labour Party.
But yet again the TV news broadcasters play the game that every initiative is a real plan
when actually they are all complete fantasy.
How can Gordon Brown’s government make plans for next year, let alone in twenty years time?
Gordon Brown can’t even admit that we need to cut back to save the economy.
And yet he is planning to spend £150 billion of our taxes under a future Conservative government.
As the army lacks body armour & helicopters, as pensioners and the unemployed are denied benefits.
When the banks are paying bonuses as they reclaim houses from mortgagees.
A good time for a holiday?
A Scorched Earth PolicyAs GB retires to Scotland he can retire in glory with his golden pension
As the most successful Scotsman ever.
The most successful at destroying England.
William Wallace would be proud of him.
This country is bankrupt.
That’s why GB won’t allow any financial review.
That’s why the Conservatives have not been allowed the customary access to public service accounts.
There are rumours that the DWP does not have the funds to pay any new benefit claims.
And that the pension credit system has blocked all new claims.
We are hanging by a thread and yet the media news chooses not to tell us what is going on & to offer us this daily fantasy.
Obama to Negotiate with Putin
Obama is in for another "lesson in reality" here.
As with Iran he will learn that these pragmatic leaders have no interest
in world peace and are only interested in dominating their local spheres.
Amhadinerjad is on course for domination of the Middle East just as Putin
has set his sights on dominating Europe.
He has already calculated that Europe will be craven to the God of Gas
and has no doubt noticed that the EU rapid deployment force is a joke
run by a committee that will never agree on its deployment.
Peace and love is the ideal but when it comes to reality its tanks & the nuclear deterrent that holds the sway.
No doubt GB will negotiate our deterrent away in a ground breaking negotiation/photo opportunity.....
just like he lost our £8billion EU rebate on Sarkozy’s broken promises.
This isn't a game to be played by idiots.
And who will lead England
