Ruling Class Gone to Lunch - Yet Again

New note:  MP’s bored with slagging off May, ‘Chequers Plan’ and EU decide to return to Parliament next week to find new subjects to slag off.  Can they count on any thinking person to ever vote for them again?

What ARE the idiots we call our Members of Parliament playing at?  Here we are over 2 years on from the European Referendum result - never mind the wisdom of that - and we still have no forward movement,  Instead, these congenital fools have indulged in a childishly irresponsible excess of power politics.  

Witness the shenanigans of the Supreme mop-headed Fool insulting almost everyone and now imagining he can become the next PM.  Witness the MP (“Mindless Pillock”) rebellion against Theresa May  - threatening to unseat her unless she ditches the ‘Chequers’ plan.  Irrespective of your opinion of the job our PM is doing, the last thing we need now is a General Election causing several more months’ delay and the seemingly unavoidable consequent political deadlock.  Witness the chaos present in the Labour Party.  Even the Lib-dems - who of late seemed to be the only party talking frankly and constructively - seem to want to ‘re-invent’ themselves.  Why now, for goodness sake?  Polls show the British people now want to stay in the EU, in approximately a ratio of 2-1 for.  Marches and protests are taking place all over little England and by Brits resident in European countries in support of the EU.  Give me a break, I could go on……….

If you speak to intelligent Europeans, they all think we were fools to vote against the EU, and they can see this fully confirmed in all the sheet that’s going on now.  Remember, the Greek voters in the face of bullying from the EU, decided to stay with them?  Doesn’t this make us look a load of mindless asses?  Hee-haw, hee-haw.

Now let’s think positive.  Cut out the politics and all that wasted energy can be re-channelled into SOMETHING positive.  Nothing less than a large action-centred cross-party working organisation composed of MP’s and EXPERIENCED Lords, economic and financial experts and top level businessmen (Who are not the Donald).  Ideally this will also include members of the European Parliament and their administration.  

Their immediate task will be to organise a proper and legal UK Referendum in which the Electorate are asked what they do want across a wide range of relevant subjects.  This will need to be electronic as a series of referendii on divided issues would follow.

Their second task will be to positively confirm the ongoing status of all EU migrants in the UK, and to determine a policy for immigrants from outside the EU - this being our problem although the ignorant would class anybody not English as ‘foreign’.

The third task would be to resolve the arguments - current and probable future - of Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Gibraltar and the Falklands.  In other words, are we to be Great Britain, the United Kingdom, or Little England?

The (in)Human Condition

And in the beginning, there was no life as we knew it.  Not a MacDonalds or Nando’s to be seen anywhere.  Yes, the people were starving.  Mrs Beeton wasn’t famous yet as she couldn’t find a stonemason who could understand how to make a pestle and mortar. Even Keith Floyd was only a child, up his first tree and already experimenting with mouldy fruit and motor-homes.  

There was a bloke in a corner called Archie inventing Retail Distribution and Just In Time, little did he know the Internetty of Life would squash all his best ideas - he would eventually become known only for the Spiral and the Brabus C5.  In the opposite corner another bloke(ss) was examining The Mail on Sunday and how to process it into solid plank with a high enough tensile strength to make crosses - hoping Archie would invent the nail but knowing very well Maggie Thatchead would have to invent the Bank-o-Mat first - unsecured finance was essential even in those times.  Joseph Dickins was inventing the dictionary, his first words being avarice, greed and selfish.

Meanwhile, down at the riverbank Ermintrude was reduced to flogging herself mercilessly as the men seemed to have no time for her. They preferred to sit together smoking strange wild leaves, casually inventing such essentials as the rugby ball, road works, the gear lever, the ‘Donald’ haircut and the beer barrel.  Having discovered the world is in fact flat, they were discussing where to find the ropes that keep their island tethered to foreign-land, so they could cut them and drift away to a better place even though they didn’t have any idea where they might go…….    These savages couldn’t even keep their pants up.  

More esoterically, the men were inventing a new language they christened politico-speak as this removed the burden of fact and was able to confuse the bejaysus out of even the most erudite Plebeian.  In the process, they invented the word ‘like’ so young people could at last converse in 4-word sentences such as “I’m like fat like”.  They had not considered older people whose fit-all word was to become ‘feck’, assuming they would all die before reaching the age of semi-maturity.

It was all so hard in those days.
