Michael Portillo and the Monsters of the Pliocene Epoch.

"Well they do say that Charity begins at home"....

I have always wondered who these mythical 'They' are when people utter such bland aphorisms? 

I also wonder why it is that these old chestnuts always seem to trot out of the mouths of middle classed, can't be arsed to fight back against the criminality of The Elite, mealy-mouthed little Englanders, who would not piss on a poor man if he was on fire? You know the kind of people I am talking about, people who accept the given Right-Wing propaganda horse manure that is pushed into our faces on a daily basis via The BBC or The Daily Mail - that anybody using a Foodbank must be 1/ Careless with their money. 2/ A Drug addict [because addicts don't deserve our compassion in 'The World According to Dacre']. Or 3/ Lazy Scroungers who are just scamming free food to pig out at our expense despite all evidence to the contrary. Those kinds of people...

And yet these are also the same type of people who will phone in and donate [rather generously at times] to scams like The BBC's 'Children in Need' or buy a god awful recording of 'Feed the World' by Saint Bob 'fucking' Geldof, and why, why do they do that, why are they willing to fund some celebrities singing a song about Christmas in Africa but will walk past a homeless man begging on the street ignoring his plea? 
The answer of course is because they don't really have to sacrifice anything or put themselves out in any meaningful way when they donate via the telly, and because we are all fearful of becoming the begging man in a society which cares nought for the life of a begging man, that's why!

Thus it is that some look at The Trussell Trust Food Bank and other community based Foodbanks which are less... shall we say 'Franchised' - Charities who warned us all that in 2013 - 13 Million British People were living below the poverty line - here in the UK, and say in response to these appalling statistics "These people should get an education and stop being lazy, work will set you free" (or words to that effect)...

And I am not making that up, I have seen such vitriol and it's like scrawled across various social media sites by right wing arseholes a number of times in recent years, and not just from nonentities like myself, but also from so called 'Important People'.

And yet according to The Government supported Trussell Trust Food Bank 'In the period from 2013 to 2014 Foodbanks fed 913,138 people nationwide. Of those helped, 330,205 were children'.  And what were their given reasons for this appalling rise in Foodbank usage here in the UK? Rising food and fuel prices, static incomes, underemployment, changes to benefits, things which are more often than not, beyond the fault of the individual.

The Trussell Trust alone has over 420 Foodbanks spread nationally and this is not counting the independent Foodbanks set up by local people to help local people in their local community... and yes - that is a lot of 'Locals' for one sentence, but you get the picture and I hope the point?

So when people like Michael Portillo go onto Andrew. F. Neil's stinking BBC 'This Week' propaganda fest and calmly in bland voice avows to the nation that he 'can't seem to find any evidence of people going hungry in the UK' my thoughts return once again to another less well known quote about 'Charity' by Norman MacDonald which goes " Some men mistake generosity for charity: these flatter themselves that they are giving gratuitously, whilst they are merely rewarding secret services offered to their vanity".

Let us not forget who and what Michael Denzil Xavier Portillo is. This is an avowed Thatcherite who seemingly loves 'The Death Sentence' and who supported Murderous Regimes across the world. He was a member of the board of the Kerr-McGee Corporation (Big Oil). He was a non-executive director of the multinational defence contractor BAE Systems (Arms Dealers). He voted in favour of the 2003 invasion of Iraq. I am not certain Mister Portillo knows what 'Charity' is. But perhaps I should not be too hard on him, after all I think perhaps that most people in this Nation of ours have a very mistaken idea of what Charity actually is, or have forgotten its true meaning; so let us address that.

Charity has come to mean in the last 40 years, something very different from what it used to, this idea of Charity that people currently have, is either that of an organization which has been set up to provide help and raise money for those in need or, (take it away Saint Bob) or  the voluntary giving of help, characteristically in the form of cash, to those in dire straits. Now while these efforts are laudable aspects of the word 'Charity' they alone are not what the word means.

What the word 'Charity' actually means is 'To act in accordance with our Human Nature'.

Humans did not develop claws, or huge canine teeth capable of puncturing and killing our prey. We did not evolve with thick hides or an armoured skin to protect us from our Prince of Darkness [the big cats who regularly feasted on unwary hominids]. No - we hominids evolved as a cooperative charitable mammal, deeply interdependent upon each other to both learn the skills to survive, and pass on those survival skills to our offspring.  We needed each other to beat off the attack of very dangerous predators, and further - to hunt enough game to feed our families which in turn enabled us to become the dominant species on this planet.

Make no mistake - The Earth is called 'The Earth' because of 'Charity'.

Without 'Charity' - that which is best characterised as - 'Having a kindness and tolerance towards others. To possess a Love of Humankind. To be lenient and less judgemental and forgiving toward our fellow Humans' then there would be a very different animal ruling this planet. Without these charitable aspects of our humanity, so vital to our survival as a species, Humanity would have ceased to exist long, long ago.

Let me be clear - 'If Charity had not been the vanguard characteristic of our human makeup then our ancient societies would never have come into being and Homo Sapiens, that fragile, thin skinned, unarmed hominid, would have passed into myth devoured by creatures infinitely better acclimated to the ancient Pliocene world which was inhabited by true monsters made colossal by nature'.

Thus it is that 'Kindness' alone is that which wrought our survival. Thus it is that 'Fear of the Other', the habitually propagandised ideology of the far right extremists who daily abuse us with their misanthropic rhetoric of hate via the means of an Elite controlled News Media, are acting utterly hostile to the very nature of mankind. We must therefore consider such hatreds and oratory as 'Deviant Behaviour', and measure their words and deeds as conduct which is abnormal and contrary to the survival humanity.

That is what the word 'Charity' means Ladies & Gentlemen, it mean survival, not only of the individual but also of the species, for without Charity mankind is doomed.

As to Michael Portillo? I am remind as I sit here and write this that his father 'Luis Gabriel Portillo PĂ©rez' was a man whose Republicanism and Lefty Politics saw him oppose everything that Franco's Fascism stood for. It truly boggles my mind that such a man as he, having such a father, could have fallen so in love with Margaret Thatcher and Neo-Liberalism? Perhaps instead of being an evil little Fascist Tosser, Michael Portillo is instead just a misguided fool who for all his urbane charm is not as worldly as people like to think?

So I will offer Mister Portillo some of the 'Charity' of which I speak here and forgive him his peculiar and illogical statement on The BBC's 'This Week' program about Foodbanks and the type of people who are forced into using them. Instead of chastising him further I will put his ignorance down to a life made easy by affluent circumstance and forgive his insulting comments... because after all Ladies & Gentlemen, 'Charity begins in the Heart'...

Turkeys, Doorsteps, and other inconvenient truths...

Nigel Farage and his ilk would have us believe that Immigrants are to blame for everything...

Oh really?

In 2003 the best *guesstimate* available to us for assessing how many Ex-Servicemen were Homeless here in Great Britain left us with the disturbing figure of roughly 100,000 men & women.

Today in 2014 with the fast approach of winters deathly grip (for winter always has a death grip on the lives of homeless people) nobody actually knows what the real figure is, and in truth - nobody in power cares to 'really' look. But there are reliable reports from responsible charities that the numbers of ex-service personnel living rough is now possibly as low as 11 Thousand, but we are cautioned that this figure is almost certainly - a low estimate.

My opinion, for what it is worth is 'that even 1 is too many'.

What is known - is that not one of these Ex-Solders was ever made homeless by an immigrant.

No Muslim, foreign or domestic, has ever made an ex-serviceman suffer the indignity of sheltering in his own country in a doorway freezing his arse off on a cold winters night as hypothermia sets in.

Nor has there ever been a recorded instance of a Romanian forcing an ex-serviceman to scrimp from supermarket waste bins simply to find enough rotten stinking food to survive on.

I might also add that The European Common Market, the infamous EU monster of Ukip rhetoric, has never, not once in its 50 plus year history, ever mandated that brave British ex-servicemen and women should be cast aside and left to rot on the streets of Great Britain as 'Outcasts' - not once.

None of the above have ever done any of these things.... That distinction falls solely upon The Government of Her Most Britannic Majesty and all the Nobs who lick her stinking arse.
 Century after century the bastards who have started wars have repeatedly treated their ex-servicemen and women in a manner that could be, at best, described as 'Shoddy'.

Now some uninformed ignoramuses' might point to the Chelsea Pensioners and say "Look, Look, see, we look after our ex-servicemen", but then again some folks are born stupid and talk a lot of bollocks, and anyway most of these types are always going to vote Ukip or Tory because, well that is what such ignoramuses' do isn't it?

Don't get me wrong here, previous Labour Governments are as guilty on their maltreatment of Ex-Servicemen who depart their military careers in the lower orders as the Tories are. In truth all political parties are jam packed with shysters and thieves, none of whom  will ever suffer the indignities that we as a society inflict upon our young men and women of the Armed Services, but the Conservative types are particularly insidious when it comes to betraying our ex-servicemen.

It's not that the Tories do anything worse than any Labour Government of recent years, far from it; it's just that the Conservative types proclaim a love and devotion towards our military men and women which rankles, and leaves a nasty taste in the mouths of those of us who have served under their fetid rule as they bang on about how brave we all are. Frankly Ladies & Gentlemen their plaudits are not worth the paper they are written on, indeed I would not wipe my arse with anything these shysters might proffer up as praise for they are all 'backstabbing turncoats'.

But the Military are not saints either, so let us put something to bed right here right now. The Military gets all types, fools, liars, thieves, arse lickers, audaciously brave types, and yes cowardly types too. We get Ignorant plebs and educated snots, middle class university types, morons, and thugs, honourable types, and very often super intelligent autodidacts whose intellect is (as often as not) feared or ignored by those above them simply because they come from the lower echelons of society.

The British Military is made up of in fact, an exact micro reflection of British Society, with all its false snobbery and bullshitting careerist wankers that you might find in any office across the land, but it has the added impetus and understanding of applied violence as a motivator and a learned skill.

Whether you like Servicemen and women or not, 11 thousand ex-service personnel this winter will be dossing down in doorways, freezing their nuts off as you sit down with your family to eat a Turkey. And as you celebrate the birth of a Jewish Foreigner, after first dressing up as another Foreigner in the shape of 'Santa Claus' who was himself derived from the Foreign Dutch figure of 'Sinterklaas', which is just another dialectal pronunciation of 'Saint Nicholas', the historical figure of whom is yet another Foreigner - the Legendary Greek bishop and gift-giver of Myra, remember this - 'No Foreigner caused their homelessness'... You and your government did that.

So Ladies & Gentlemen, how did we get from a society which treasures our children, and lavishes so much love and attention upon them at Christmas time, to a society which casts them into the winds of war as young men to protect our society, braving and committing horrors in our name; only to then discard them and leave them to suffer the indignity of freezing to death as mentally scarred 'Outcasts'?

Let me frame that same question in more emotive terms.

"How do you get from a Civil Society with full emancipation and suffrage to Gas Chambers?"

Abject Cowardice.... that's how!

Every unthinking bonehead alive today who seeks a Master to follow, will undoubtedly find one. This is the core truth of our servile compliance which lays at the centre of our modern Society, and further - it is the belief of which, that has bound us all to the capricious will of grotesque leaders who laugh at our mewling, grovelling, obsequiousness towards our 'Betters' as they sit stuffing themselves on the public coffer considering us all as nothing but a pathetic joke... as Plebs.

We have been programmed by them time and again to believe that our unbending obedience to our masters Law is 'Honourable' and that Obedience to their Law is the only way to National Salvation. Indeed they even name our unthinking rank submission as 'Duty' - as an obligation to their 'Just Rule' - and it is a Rule Ladies & Gentlemen which - if the fallout from the Iraq War can teaches us anything - is never Just.  Further; we are impelled to fulfil this imposed 'Duty' or be counted terrorist; and I am not joking here when I claim such things, for as recent inadvertently released documents prove - 'peaceful dissent & protest' is now classed - here in the United Kingdom by our 'Security Services' as *Terrorism*.


Let us for god sake tell the truth for once...

'This so called obligation that they impose upon us as a mass of people is nothing more than us as individuals yielding our free will into the care of Monsters because we are terrified of them'.

By acting the knave and refusing to face up to our personal responsibility towards others in our society we are collaborating with their villainy! Our silence about injustice, any injustice, [and there are boundless examples of which I could narrate here], is nothing more than 'collaboration'. And claiming 'I am only doing what others are doing' will not absolve you or myself of complicity in their crimes. In point of fact doing what others are doing just because you don't want to attract their attention - only damns you the more.

We have become a Nation of frightened souls, we are scared of loss, terrified of living the life of a homeless outcast, and thus, our abject fear turns us all into cowardly unthinking brutes, minions who are willing to obey any order, do anything to anybody, no matter how immoral or atrocious such actions might be, anything rather than stand up and say to these criminals who govern our daily lives - "No, I will not bow to you, fuck you and the horse you came in on".

And that Ladies and Gentlemen is how you go from a 'Civil Society with full emancipation and Health Care for the least amongst us, with universal education, to a Nation of Slaves willing to tolerate 'Gas Chambers' and Police Violence towards our kids on a university campus, and is also how our bravest young men and women, willing to serve on the front-line of War in your stead, end up living on the streets as Outcasts....

And not once, not a single time in our long history has any Immigrant or Foreigner ever caused us to abandon our morality or our responsibility to our fellow countrymen. That crime falls upon the shoulders of people like Nigel Farage, David Cameron, & Tony Blair and all the other Neo-Liberal politicians who like to blame the 'Other' for crimes that they themselves perpetrate.

But it also falls upon the shoulders of you out there in Lala Land who are willing to believe their lies, you who follow your beloved Messiah's with blind devotion as you surrender your morality and intellect into the care of monsters...

Enjoy your Turkey.

Blogger's, Journalists, and Working Class Language.

Working Class Language...

Isn't it funny how the Press and the TV always present 'The language of The Working Class' as the language of the illiterate, the unthinking bumpkin, The Fool...
It is an oft repeated theme which springs up time and again in comedy shows on the Telly as they expose some random Ukip follower for the moron that he really is, but being Anti Ukip is not the real agenda and they don't really mean to be a champion of the Left do they? What they really mean is - look at the working class fool using 'The Language of the Retard'... because that is what TV Schedulers think of us working class plebs.

It is also how Journalists who scoff at bloggers in their foetid Newspapers backed by their Tycoon Masters Billions and aided and abetted  by a thousand staffers like portray us poor ordinary schmucks out here who have not been to 'Journalist school' to be carefully indoctrinated into unswerving belief in Big Brother, because we are in their eyes exactly that - 'Schmucks' and there really is now a 'Big Brother Syndrome'.

What these journalists are of course, is puppets. They serve a Master, and we all know who those Masters are. They are Dogs and they are the pick of the litter, the chosen ones who must guide the rest of us plebs to the sheep pen of safety; and thus it is that any criticism of their beloved Sheppard's Agenda is stamped upon and actively worked against, and yes I mean via false memes, false stories, lies, the infiltration of online groups, feeding false data and spreading disinformation which can easily catch out the best of us as we go about our busy lives...

This is why when they see a blogger of any standing with a large following make a mistake they pounce on them as though they serve a Holy Cause... because in their world view - 'they and ONLY they' may make political comment and be taken seriously, everything else is just the disjointed ravings of a lunatic or a insignificant Lefty stuck out on the fringe of yesteryear's political ideology... at least that is how bloggers are often presented in the right wing controlled mainstream media.

But the truth is we online activists are just ordinary citizens doing our bit without the colossal economic back up of a Tycoon funded and thousand staffed News Agency to check every single thing and get what we say right 100% of the time....

But what is surprising, is just how many facts over the last 5 years have ONLY come to light because there is an alternative voice to the hugely propagandised right wing controlled Press and TV News here in the West, and furthermore - how many of these 'facts' revealed and shared with the public via the means of blogs and other social media sites, have time and again been proven to be accurate. And Ladies & Gentlemen isn't that an astounding and earth shaking judgement upon the piss poor levels of News Reporting & Investigative Journalism that emanates from the bowels of our Main Stream Media.

Are some facts lost by bloggers? Yes. Are there some malicious agencies at work putting out deliberately false memes and articles with the set purpose to discredit anybody who uses their false data to challenge these so called professional Journalists? YES.... Are there also - other people who do similar things just because they are arseholes? YES... But the vast majority of people who challenge the accepted bullshit of professional News Agencies and their warped truths and often outright lies, do so because there is a real need...

I would also add, that from what I have seen of Journalists over the last 20 years, so many lack any form of moral courage, indeed very few, at least too few in my experience, are of the standing of John Pilger, which quite frankly is the standard I expect and demand from a 'Professional Journalist' charged with the 'DUTY' of Watchdog over our civilisations political and economic movers and shakers...

And that is a problem isn't it... these people do not do their jobs well, most of them are shoddy, lazy, plagiarists lacking moral fibre and real insight.  But so too are we to blame for there are too many real life actual Schmucks willing to believe the shit they peddle.

We are a people bred stupid, over the last 40 years and we have been bred down to the lowest common denominator of stupidity; a people that willingly and blindly believe the lies that we are repeatedly told via the State controlled mediums of The Press and The TV News. We as a people must wake up and accept that we have been BRED stupid... so stupid in fact that a vast amount of people don't even know that they are stupid? And just what precisely do you get when you couple this National Stupidity to Nationalistic Arrogance? Well you get a Britain ripe for a Fascist takeover that's what....

But what boggles my 'Working Class' mind about all this, even in today's politically ignorant climate where the vast majority of the public have no 'true memory' - and where the embarrassing superfluity of idiocy is exposed daily via the means of social media; what continues to boggle me, is the outraged cry of the working class turncoat who screams out his hateful bile and uneducated ignorance in response to some random Working Class Lefty exposing (once again) yet another example of the burgeoning greed of our Royalist Loving Politicians, as they scream in capital letters on Facebook or Twitter that classic line about - "IT WUZ DA UNIONS WHICH FUCKED UP DIS CUNTRY"! [and yes that really happened on my social media timeline]

Well apart from the appalling spelling, I am less interested in the Grammar, but at least they could make the fucking effort to run their splenetic bullshit through a word processor, [see what I did there?] what is even more appalling is the sheer unadulterated ignorance of their bilious assertions about 'DA FUCKING UNIONS' and what they did to this cuntry... oops I meant to say 'Country'.

I guess such unthinking morons have never heard of Milton Freidman, or how Thatcher who following his evil advice almost exactly [or was it orders?] deliberately created 3 million unemployed people here in Great Britain so that she and her Quisling underlings could sell out their fellow countrymen in order to profit from the deliberate misery and poverty that they together created?

I guess such mewling gutless cretins have never heard of, or at least have conveniently forgotten, how Margaret Thatcher treated with Despots and Mass Murderers in Chile, Indonesia, South Africa, Brazil, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Chad, Argentina [yes I did say Iran, Iraq, and Argentina - but there were many others], or how she deliberately increased the interest rates in this country to 14.5% so that ordinary people eventually lost their homes; homes that she was so keen for us to all own when she was first seeking election and gerrymandering Elections.

I guess these pig ignorant bumpkins, who exactly resemble the schmucks that snobbish journalists  so often portray us all as, have not once heard rumour that she did all these things in order to recreate a 'British Underclass' which the Elite so enjoy because, (putting it in a language these cretins might be able to grasp), it allows the rich bastards at the top of our Class System to create a climate of fear across the nation and allows them to garner for themselves unparalleled profits at the ordinary mans expense?

 I guess such weak minded lickspittles do not remember how Thatcher had a journalist murdered in South America for exposing her Government for selling Torture Equipment to these same Despots whom she had helped to grab power across the continent of South America in the first place - and who by the by 'Disappeared' nearly 2 million Human Beings after they seized power.

I guess these collaborating right wing scum refuse to believe that the miners were good ordinary hard working British Citizens, men who sought nought but a fair wage for working in difficult and hazardous conditions because any old invented fantasy is preferable to admitting to the truth that they are gutless cowards who like sheep will bow down and Obey any Dog commanded by some unseen Sheppard.

I guess these vermin are totally unaware that Ricky Tomlinson, (one of their much beloved actors off the Telly) back then stood with the miners against Thatcher's 'Harrowing of the North' and was stitched up by her Government and was imprisoned for 2 years for crimes he never committed, and who also by the by, was given the option of not going to jail if he would but only just accept a plea of guilt for a lesser crime (which he also had not committed) and a fine of £50 quid. This measly attempt at Terror and Moral Self Subornment failed only because Tomlinson and his comrades had the ethical fortitude to tell Thatcher's cronies to 'go fuck themselves'.

I guess there are no 'Government Cover Ups'... Hillsborough was the fans fault, they really did pick the pockets of the dead. Jimmy Savile was a one off monster with no Establishment figures involved. The Birmingham 6 were all guilty. The Iraq War was not engineered to enrich a very few of the Super Elite. Thatcher never sold arms to murderers. Tony Blair was a Lefty. And Nuclear Power? Well that is 100% safe isn't it? And as for global warming? Well that is a Lefty Conspiracy (surprisingly the one conspiracy these right wing cretins are willing to believe in) And last but not least all Muslims are Terrorists...

I guess it never occurs to these pitiable imbeciles that doing just a little research online, just a tiny amount, would completely destroy the right wing fantasy concocted by our utterly unscrupulous right wing Propaganda News Agencies that "IT WUZ DA UNIONS WHICH FUCKED UP DIS CUNTRY" because any 'State propagated hateful miasma', any slur on Romanian immigrants by the Messiah Nigel, any slander that all unemployed disabled people are all 'putting it on' by any one of the rags that they label 'Newspapers' is a far more tolerable reality than the one which involves them looking at their own spineless, cowardly, obedient, collaboration with evil.

I despise these Political Journalists who heavily funded work so tirelessly for their not so unseen masters, I mean it... I truly hate them. I look upon such creatures as Nick Robinson as contemporary Lord Haw Haw's, nothing but treacherous villains who deserve to share in the fate of William Joyce.

But what disgusts me more, is the working class idiots who scream out in their uninformed frustration that "IT WUZ DA UNIONS WHICH FUCKED UP DIS CUNTRY".... such ignorant bumpkins are a stain on my class, a stain on the nobility of hard working class people throughout the ages, people who taught themselves to read and write despite what our so called 'Betters' did to undermine our societies.

These fools are a stain on the honour all of those who struggled against Fascism in the 30's and 40's. They are utterly reprehensible class traitors who are willing to get down on their knees and accept the munificence of a Master like the beaten cur's that they so resemble...

What hollow creatures you are... you are deemed by our 'Betters' to be 'worth less' and thus having no moral courage coupled to your stunted intellects you accept this Worthlessness as real and act accordingly... and why? Because they make your SLAVERY an easy option.

Voltaire said "It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere" - and anyway after 40 years of being bred stupid we all know that "IT WUZ DA UNIONS WHICH FUCKED UP DIS CUNTRY" don't we?


How's that for Working Class Language?
