The Media manipulate and manufacture fear. Terror threat critical, Troops on the Streets. The Government cares about kids when they are blown up, but wants to stop free school meals and Youth Services are cut back. Don't fear the(ir) fear It is known that psychologically it is easier to control people if they are scared. Interesting times continue, as it all explodes in the middle of a General Election campaign, one in which if the Conservatives win by a huge majority will see Britain turn into a one party state, the media once again manipulate and manufacture. Bullshit broadcasts blind the already partially sighted. The politicians promises will manifest into lies when they get into power. It all comes down to trust and who the people belief will protect their self interests and beliefs the most. I hope enough people don't vote Tory, A Conservative consensus would see our freedoms taken away in the name of democracy, and more of our money being used to pay for this while the railways grind to a halt and the NHS falls sick. It's about the policies not the people. Strong stable leadership, or Labour co-operation, policies for the few, or for the many? Teresa May or Jeremy Corbyn? No...it's about the party; one that is for the few or one that is for the many! Together we are stronger, and don't let the media tell you anything else. If people really looked, they would see that there is more that unites us than divides us. We have more in common than the powers that we let be would like us to think we have. Divided we are ruled, together we make the rules!
Once again the British Security Services let a terrorist escape their sights, this happened on the Tory's watch, it also would appear that they haven't used special powers to 'keep out' terrorists; Temporary Exclusion Orders have only been used once to stop Jihadists returning from Libya and Syria entering Britain. How do the Conservative Party address these facts? They attack Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn and Dianne Abbott for talking to the IRA, (back in the day when terrorist left messages warning of an attack.) really, well I've got news.... the Northern Island Peace process didn't happen without all concerned parties putting aside their differences and talking. Our strong and stable leadership doesn't sound very strong and stable when in the wake of the recent attack in Manchester it accuses Labour leaders of being terrorist apologists, rather than admit their own failings in doing nothing to protect it's own citizens, or are some attacks seen as inevitable and the victims just collateral damage when there aren't the resources to watch all those suspected of being Radical Islamists, then just to complete some strange circle Internment is suggested as a means to control the terror threat, yeah look how well that worked at Longkesh in Northern Ireland.
Intern them and have troops on the streets is that really their answer? and the Conservatives say the Labour party that wants to take Britain back to the 1970's.

A check up from the neck up. If the health of a nation can be judged by the rate of suicides, then we are not in a very good place; According to Gov.uk in May 2016 they were are at their highest for 20 years. I don't think things have got any better for the British people, cos that was before Brexit, Trump, more terror, Syria, North Korea etc, etc, so who knows how many more people have ended it all, with feelings of alienation and anomie. Due to social stigma the recorded stats for suicides are also a lot lower. In Jan 2017 some sections of the media said it was a 'national crisis' as miss recording of stats was hiding the full extent of suicide in Britain. In March 2017, prior to President Trump there was a report that said the USA was facing an epidemic of “deaths of despair.”
So there you go the pursuit of total free market capitalism with it's focus on individualism and competition kills.... as suicide is the ultimate act of selfishness!
£12 million of British tax payers money has been spent on the hunt for Madeline Macann, all because a couple of selfish middle class parents didn't look after their child, she wasn't stolen, they just cared more about themselves, and as a result during all the economic hard times the people have been paying for this couples mistake. Most decent people would have said enough is enough, the money could be spent for the good of a lot more people than just us, but hey who said the Mccanns were decent people, because if they were then they wouldn't have left their child alone while they went to stuff their faces. They are the epitome of what has been wrong with this country for the last ten years; selfish, indulgent, inward looking and a sense of over importance.
There are two sides for the few or for the many. The individual or the collective, but it will always be about the money and how to distribute it public or private. Work together or get torn apart. The individual has ruled for too long. Time for a collective reaction and some action. Fuck the few and up the many! We've been shafted for far too long now!
As our leaders take us into Brexit negotiations, they still believe that they are gonna be in control of the table with their no deal is better than a bad deal for Britain attitude. Well I've got news....they aint and it wont be! Teresa May declares the forthcoming General Election’s gonna be a “Brexit election” and promptly none of the parties say anything, it's all about the NHS, Taxes etc, well I've got more news, there wont be much money for anything if we don't get a good deal sorted out with the EU They can try and get our votes with promises of increased funding for this and that and having to have a strong economy, but with what? and from where, when for the next few years we don't know were the pennies and pounds are gonna be coming from. What about the shortfall in funding that we used to receive from Europe? If during this election campaign no-one addresses the elephant in the room that is Brexit then we will be crushed by it, and if our leaders accept no deal then they will be committing Britain to a slow suicide.
