Nigel Farage and his ilk would have us believe that Immigrants are to blame for everything...
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*.
WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, and IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH!
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.
