John Redwood

The following comes from the Green Book all MP should be aware of the contents of this book. Pages 11 and 12 stated the following;
The principles are:
Claims should be above reproach and must reflect actual usage
of the resources being claimed.
Claims must only be made for expenditure that it was
necessary for a Member to incur to ensure that he or she could
properly perform his or her parliamentary duties.
Allowances are reimbursed only for the purpose of a Member
carrying out his or her parliamentary duties. Claims cannot
relate to party political activity of any sort, nor must any claim
provide a benefit to a party political organisation.
It is not permissible for a Member to claim under any
parliamentary allowance for anything that the Member is
claiming from any other source.
Members must ensure that claims do not give rise to, or give
the appearance of giving rise to, an improper personal financial
benefit to themselves or anyone else.
Members are committed to openness about what expenditure
has been incurred and for what purposes.
Individual Members take personal responsibility for all expenses
incurred, for making claims and for keeping records, even if the
administration of claims is delegated by them to others.
8 Enquiry and advice line 020 7219 1340
The Green Book
The requirement of ensuring value for money is central in
claiming for accommodation, goods or services – Members
should avoid purchases which could be seen as extravagant
or luxurious.
Claims must be supported by documentary evidence,
except where the House has agreed that such evidence is
not necessary.
These principles recognise that, in the nature of our democratic
system, Members will wish to explain their views about policies.
However, public money must not be used to give unfair political
advantage to one political party, and for this reason there are
specific controls on particular allowances.
 Mr Redwood is claiming that he should not have to repay some of the money he has been asked to; You can see this here

Mr Redwood please read HERE seems to get two invoices for job he pays for? Mr Redwood cliams the following from his own BLOG, interesting and more to come as I dig into Mr. Redwood.

Firstly I need to explain, what honesty is, for those of you who might not know, this might also be helpful to Mr. Redwood.


[on-ist] Show IPA
1. honorable in principles, intentions, and actions; upright and fair: an honest person.
2. showing uprightness and fairness: honest dealings.
3. gained or obtained fairly: honest wealth.
4. sincere; frank: an honest face.
5. genuine or unadulterated: honest commodities.
6. respectable; having a good reputation: an honest name.
7. truthful or creditable: honest weights.
8. humble, plain, or unadorned.
9. Archaic. chaste; virtuous.

The above is what we expect MPs to be, what we have seems to be one of two things, People who seem to make lots of mistakes and fairly often, or people who are dishonest.

dis·hon·est  (ds-nst)
1. Disposed to lie, cheat, defraud, or deceive.
2. Resulting from or marked by a lack of honesty.

[Middle English dishoneste, dishonorable, from Old French deshoneste, probably from Medieval Latin *dishonestus : Latin dis-, dis- + Latin honestus, honorable; see honest.]

dis·honest·ly adv.
Synonyms: dishonest, lying2, untruthful, deceitful, mendacious
These adjectives mean lacking honesty or truthfulness. Dishonest is the least specific: a dishonest business executive.
Lying conveys a blunt accusation of untruth: a lying witness giving inconsistent testimony.
Untruthful is a softer term and suggests lack of veracity and divergence from fact: made an untruthful statement.
Deceitful implies misleading by falsehood or by concealment of the truth: deceitful advertising.
Mendacious is more formal than lying, and suggests a chronic inclination toward untruth: a mendacious and troublesome employee.
Now let us see what Mr. Redwood is. I see the following HERE 
Mr Redwood seems to want to keep silent, yet with all the above I think Mr Redwood is looking more and more like a politician, someone who would gladly make a little money for nothing if possible, like we all would, but for some reason does not want to pay it back when he gets caught.

What Say You Mr. Redwood.

Catholic education

I read this and I think to myself this really isn't news.

My problem is I sort of expect you to know the following, A a politician is only ever going to crawl, and when its the Pope, lick boots as well.

Lets sell something for the pope

Friday, 29 January 2010


Right, well in the idea of balance on to what I saw last night on This Week, a show I never miss.

The poster, well, it has made him a laughing stock, and I gotta say I love it. Dave has just showed himself to be what I am sure I have heard him say he does not want, personality politics.

Its all about him. We can not go on like this, and its all him.

Even more now it is going to be a "hung parliament" and well fingers crossed they will never sort anything out and we can go on like belgium and have no one in charge for a few months. We really do not need them, they actually do not do as much as they make you think they do.

Tony Blair

First thing I need to say is sorry for this post but everyone is talking him, so I might as well tell the truth about it, for all of you who are listening to the crap that people are putting out.

FIRST, he is now a catholic, so he does not care about a thing, regrets are something that they never have, they go to confession, tell it all to the priest, and its all gone, no worries no problem.

Remember the IRA is catholic, never seen a priest hand over a bomber or a child killer, or a molester (Wait a minute that is the priest). Nope, because when you go to confession, its all forgiven. So asking TB if he regrets anything? You must have some sort of mental block if you think he is going to say yes to that.

Second, TB is a professional politician. Like 80% of them in the house now. They have been taught politics. Not experienced lifting a box, changing the brakes on a car, doing an oil change in the driveway. Never worked a Till given change, cut a plank of wood. Changed a tap or put up a Ikea whatever.

They have no idea of what the world is, or how to work within it, they have no idea how 60% of people live.

Now, I speak from experience, when you go to university for political courses, you are taught, pretty much, how to be a good white collar criminal, it teaches you how to get away with every little thing possible, all in the guise of negotiating which is pretty much what being a good politician is all about, give and take and management. It teaches you that sometimes being weak allows you to be strong and get what you want, in the case of where I spent my time, it taught you how to  keep two sets of books.

Tony, is a pro. If you offered him a few bucks and peace in the middle east, if he killed 10 people to save 100, the first words of out his mouth would be, do you want me to strangle them? He does not care, he sees goals, thats it. Dead people mean nothing, a few bucks in his pocket and the overall goal, in his case being on the international stage making big bucks, was his goal from the start, the fact he has distroyed peoples lives, well I went to confessional so what does that matter.

You gotta love this, and this is what we call POOR reporting...

So I am listening to iPM and Eddie is doing his bit, and really sets everything up nicely, but as most BBC reporters are not very bright, he just hits the guy on the head time after time, and doesn't bother hitting the nail.

We all know about afghanistan and its politics, curruption that makes our guys look like angels. Everyone knows this, Eddie mentions this a few time. Its all good. Now the killer, we are going to Pay the Tiliban to come over to ourside. Then he mentions even the Taliban has complained about curruption. (Wow it must be bad).

So now, what Eddie should have said, Isn't paying them off adding to the curruption? I mean it would be currupt of me to pay an MP to change his vote wouldn't it? Are we not just buying into the system? Throwing money at it and when its all gone, they might just change back?

Eddie, Eddie, think small, and give up on reading those questions on cards, think for yourself!!!

Its just as bad as interviewnging someone about schools and when they complain about getting the cane when they where young, you should say it worked didn't it? You don't do it again did you? Instead of just listening?

I mean we all know, a quick rap on the knuckles makes you think...

The Only Question to Ask

Right, here we go again.

As we all know the election will be held in May, we need to set out what questions the reporters need to ask. The first question that the public want answered is simple. "Will you promise NOT to raise Income Tax and VAT during your term in office?"

Thats it, no other question needs to be asked. Now we will not get any reporters smart enough to ask this question, or who will be able to put it in simple enough terms that it can be answered in one word.

Another question, "Will you regulate against further expenses and reduce your income to match the average wage of the general public?" This will never happen, but it is one of those questions you can ask a Tory and wait for them to ask "Whats the general public?"

In regards to the expenses problems the question that any reporter should be asking is "What do you do with your standard wage, which is 3 time that of the average wage, that means you have to claim for (Insert Item here)? Because most of the general public seem to be able to get away with buying that items without having expenses to claim it from.

But you will, nore is there, a reporter with the brain to ask that, when that is the easiest question to ask. Just think about it, someone earning 18K manages to by bath plugs, how is it they need to claim for them? What happened to their 3 times average wage?

Over taxed maybe?

Anyway, I want to know what questions you want put to the idiots in charge, the BBC is doing the same thing, but you know its going to be changed and monitored beyond anything, so no nasty questions or common sense questions will apart of it.

He's Done Everything Wrong

Five states got deals on health care-one of them was Harry Reid's. It is
disgusting, just disgusting. I've never seen anything like it. The unions
just got them to drop the tax on Cadillac plans in the health-care bill. It
was pure union politics. They just went along with it. It's a bizarre form
of political corruption. It's bribery. I suppose they could say, that's the
system. He was supposed to change it or try to change it.
Even that is not the worst part. He could have said, "I know. I promised
these things, but let me try to do them one at a time." You want to deal
with health care? Fine. Issue No. 1 with health care was the cost. You know
I think it was 37 percent or 33 who were worried about coverage. Fine, I
wrote an editorial to this effect. Focus on cost-containment first. But he's
trying to boil the ocean, trying to do too much. This is not leadership.
 It just makes me think, he comes from a place Chicago;

DICK SIMPSON, UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS: Well, there are two parts to what you're suggesting. First of all, yes, we are the most — we're the capital of corruption in the United States. We're worse than even Louisiana and New Jersey.
We've had a thousand public officials and businessmen convicted of corruption and — since 1971. Thirty of our aldermen have gone to jail and so forth, four governors.
This is taken from Here

Having been to the Windy city a few times to grace the ice and bang the puck, I think it is a lovely City. Just look at the history of the politics, and look at what Obama said whe Rob tried to sell his seat, and doesn't it all seem a little questionable?

You have to love him for trying, but its simple. People need to be working first, if they are working, they can get health insurance.

BUT you must accept one thing, governments do not create Jobs. Companies create jobs, they produce something, someone sells it, the owner gets his investment back and he pays his employees.

A government starts a project, builds a bridge and when its done, what happens? No jobs afterwards..

Unless you work for the government, then what do you do? Push paper from one place to another or help other people who did not get the job you have with the government.

The US is a mess, and I never perdicted this, I hoped this would never come, I thought just maybe, but then again, this is what happened here in the UK. We got Tony, we wanted Change, we are in a hell of a mess.

Obama is Tony B.

Wednesday, 20 January 2010

This is the year of CHANGE, so it seems that both Labour and the Tories are going to use the same word for their election compains, so I have just registered - Here I will be place a forum where "We the people" can talk about change and what we would like to change this year.

Massachusetts Election

All I have to say is America has been saved!

Oil and Petrol prices...

Ok, sooil prices are easy to track, can someone explain to me, with them at half the level we are paying 1.10?

Massachusetts Election

Fingers crossed for the united states and the republicans get the Massachusetts seat. Then it really becomes what Obama always says he wants, a bipartisan bill, and they have to work together to get things to pass.

For all his bipartisan talk nothing has been. Then he just blames the republicans because they don't agree with him.

Now we will see how good he really is...

information Czar Conspiracy Theories

Ok now you have to read this CLICK HERE and then tell me what you think.

Now paranoid, is one thing...

I have never been a fan of Obama for the simple reason, he is way too smooth, and any politician who is that smooth is out for number one and not the country. Tony rings a bell, and Obama has shown the same thing, 300 people almost blown up, and it takes him 72 hours to say it was nothing really. He does not give up anything for him, regardless of the country.

Conspiracy Theories are always interesting, but to pay that much attention to them, well it makes me think that some of them are close to the mark, and you want to make sure that no one hears them or starts to think about them too much.

I will make another perdiction here, Obama is a single term Prez, he is not going to pull the US out of anything, he is going to spend and spend, and if it does not work, get voted out and go buy an island some place and relax.

If you think about it, you know where he comes from right? Opps better not start a Conspiracy Theory.

Serious problems, We Create

So now I hear on TV that "your skin has rights". The problem with Rights, is someone has to take responsibility, and by taking responsibility you earn your rights, but now it seems you have them regardless.

Kill someone, well you have rights and we must take care of you.

Kill someone who broke into your home, well you must suffer, you should have let him take what he wants, I mean you have a job you can buy it again.

EU in serious money problems...

Its been interesting reading about thiseu-gulps-at-greek-economic-catastrophe on the Tap.

It is something I have been following, but I must admit not to digging too deep, but when you do things come to light.

Greece has simply spent money, no worry no nothing, and they had the bog show, and spent alot of money on that, with nothing due to come back, it was always going to spend money.

The problem is, if you don't produce, or pay back what you get, you'll get into trouble, and the EU rules say that we all have to bail them out.

Our money problems are actually on a par with with Greece, now that is a little worrying.

Do you think the EU will bail us out?

I still stand by what I have said, by 2012 the Euro will be accepted currency here, and we will be on the way full Euro intergration.

Haiti - My take on the "international crisis"

At the risk of getting removed from the Internet, I am about to post something that might upset alot of people, but it is simple the truth, but not as all the liberal lovers of trees and greens see it. It is what they wish to forget.

Number 1 -

François "Papa Doc" Duvalier Biography

Political Leader / President of Haiti

François Duvalier was the notorious ruler of Haiti throughout the 1960s. Duvalier was a physician (the source of his nickname, "Papa Doc") who worked in the Haitian government beginning in the mid-1940s. With the army's support, he was elected to the presidency in 1957. In 1964 he declared himself president for life and indeed, stayed president until his death in 1971, when his son, Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier, succeeded him. Papa Doc was an expert in voodoo who ruled Haiti with brute force and terror, with a ruthless security force, the Tontons Macoutes, acting as real-life bogeymen who routinely executed his opponents.

Then you have

Jean-Claude Duvalier

Jean-Claude Duvalier

In office
April 21, 1971 – February 6, 1986
Preceded by
François Duvalier
Succeeded by
Henri Namphy

July 3, 1951 (1951-07-03) (aged 58)
Port-au-Prince, Haiti
Michèle Bennett
One daughter and one son
Jean-Claude Duvalier (nicknamed Bébé Doc or Baby Doc) (born July 3, 1951) succeeded his father, François "Papa Doc" Duvalier as the ruler of Haiti from his father's death in 1971 until his overthrow by a popular uprising in 1986.
The country has not had a stable leader for so long it can nor will it ever recover. We have BBC reporters talking to people out in the back woods of Haiti and they are saying there is no help. No kidding, you would not have had help BEFORE any of this.

24 Year since it was all over, and AID workers have been there, horridly some of them have died in this, but WHAT HAVE THEY BEEN DOING ALL THIS TIME?

Now all of a sudden we have this earthquake and we have to help them out?

I will tell you what I learned when I went to Africa, not as a tourist, but as someone who was going to work, even if it was only for a week, in the back of beyond.

DO NOT GIVE TO LARGE AID AGENCYS! THEY EMPLOY PEOPLE! If you want to help out go and do it yourself, or send money directly to someone within the country you trust.

I went to Tanzania, behind lake victoria a place called Bukoba. Lovely place. Aid workers? Assistance? nope, they did it themselves. When the bodies blocked up the river from Rwanda, they cleared it out themselves.

Sure, I am some sort of NUT, but for gods sake, if an agency gets so big that it has to HIRE people and PAY LOTS OF MONEY to these people, then nothing is going to get to the ground where it is needed.

25 Years after both the DOCs, and the country is still a mess, so when something like this happens, opps it all hands to the pumps.

I feel sorry for Africa, they can not suffer any earthquakes for us to wake up, we just pump the money in, the agencys take a cut, and pay out a little, and give to the leaders and the people get nothing, and we will never wake up to this.

Politics without Parties....

About the Jury Team

Launched in mid March 2009, the Jury Team is for people who believe in democracy but who have seen how the current party political system has turned the United Kingdom's Parliament and Government into the creatures of a small and increasingly distant group of self-serving politicians.

 It is an interesting idea, once which I sign up to, but the larger question is, what happens when you get a group of indpendent people in a room. The lower the IQ exponentially.

Gordo gets personal....

So I read the following Gordoo Gets Personalnot just Dave.

He is right now I think of it. I thought personality politics was the sort of thing Dave didn't want, so why is he the front man on the posters?

I would think that the Election should be about getting this country working again. Getting cleaner more honest people in charge (Which will not be mentioned by any politicians during the entire campain) Note, nothing has been done about expenses, nor will anything been done. Apparently they are under paid? I still have yet to hear someone ask an MP where does the 60k a year actually goes?

I know people earning less than 20 who have a place to live, TVs, DVDs, clothes, all sorts of things, but apparently they need to claim these on expenses because they do not get paid enough.

Why will no one ask that question?

Britian the Terrorist and Education

Ok, so my big bug bear is the education system here in this country, and you all know the story of the Uni Educated person who could not do basic math in his head, nor speak so he could be understood, no need to go over old news, but this thing makes me wonder.

Why here? Are we teaching them and not our own? Surely not? (More than possible as I used to work for someone who was gifted in getting people in via student visas and renting them flats getting the get Gov to pay for it, I think he compared it to Swiss cheese.)

Makes me wonder, anyway, as a thought, and another beg for comments, is the UK a Christian country?

the peter principle

Just wondering how many of you have heard of the peter principle by this I mean;

The Peter Principle is the principle that "In a Hierarchy Every Employee Tends to Rise to His Level of Incompetence." It was formulated by Dr. Laurence J. Peter and Raymond Hull in their 1969 book The Peter Principle, a humorous treatise which also introduced the "salutary science of Hierarchiology", "inadvertently founded" by Peter. It holds that in a hierarchy, members are promoted so long as they work competently. Sooner or later they are promoted to a position at which they are no longer competent (their "level of incompetence"), and there they remain, being unable to earn further promotions. This principle can be modeled and has theoretical validity.[1] Peter's Corollary states that "in time, every post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out his duties" and adds that "work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence".

Comments please? Gordo maybe? Cam the Man? Clegg the Leg?

We must be PC - I have just found this place. Read it, Share it, Love it....

Two Fat Ladies - 88, now can I ask anyone who has gone to Bingo, and I have, have you even seen anyone upset at that call, or any of the others?

This country!We MUST be PC? Who runs this country, the lawyers or us?

Weather is Random...

random (lacking any definite plan or order or purpose; governed by or depending on chance)

I am a bit worried about the "English" and it is not just the poor education system, and those degree holding alcoholics who are not able to do mental math, or speak english that is understandable to the general public, nor is it the jobs worths that try and throw solders off trains, see Idiot.

Its this global warming thing, now I have always believed, and in this country it seems I am wrong in this belief, that the weather is Random, please see the above for what Random means. In talking to anyone over 50, it seems they think the same thing, you get cold you get hot. Winters are generally cold, and apparently we have had snow before, last Feb, if I remember correctly.

But it seems not here in England. It seems that the weather should be guessable, and very much the same, pretty much like clock work I was told by one Englishman. When I happened to suggest that its is possible that this sort of weather has happened before, well how can I put this, he went English on me, and foaming at the month, how wrong was I, suggesting this means I must have a mental defect.

I need assurance, is weather Random, or have I moved to a country were weather is as regular as a digital watch?

How do you confuse an English man, show him the time, but not on a digital watch.

SS Alive and well within Britian

Read and look at these video. I have a website that was once used by a women who was suffering the abuse of SS here, they had taken her children away from her because she was being abused by her ex-husband, now you would think that the thing to do would be to stop the ex-husband from coming around and beating up his ex-wife.

Apparently this was not so easy as he never appeared during 9-5 hours, so the police couldn't catch him.

Anyway, long story short, she blogged on my site about this, and mentioned the name of the SS officer who was involved in this, and let me tell you if half of this was true, it was very scary.

Within 2 months I was receiving letters telling me to remove the information from the site. When I asked why, because it was an open forum and they had the right of reply on the forum, and as I was hosted in the US, I had freedom of speach, I was promptly told that if I did not remove it, they would use the full power of the law against my family in the UK.

Needless to say I removed the comments.

They truely are the SS.

Parents told.....

Right, I am on board here, something must be done about this....

I think we need to have everyone vetted before they do anything, even having a child, we must make sure they know exactly what they are doing and have a history of having children and no child abuse before we allow them to have children.

These parents must be checked before they take their children to the loo. As they will be in a confined space with a child in a room that generally only has one way in and one way out, the odds are this will increase child abuse cases, so CRB checks all around.

Any single mothers must be checked and kept way from any other man, because men are bad, look at how she has been left, single and with a child.

I think I might volunteer, as I think as a man I should be locked away, just because there is a chance, while I might not know it yet, there might be a chance I maybe a child molester and there for it would be better off for the world and the country if I was locked away.

Come on MEN lets admit it, we are bad and may well hurt people, we must accept this and give ourselves up now for the sake of all mankind (oops sorry),all kind.

Health and Safty

Ok, so here we go. I need someone who is English to explain this one to me because in Canada and the States it is simple, you have 24 hours to clear your walkway, and your drive so the postman can deliver the post, otherwise you get fined, and the local auth will come around and clean it for you and charge you on top of the fine.

It does not matter if you are 80 years old, you must clean your drive, or someone can do it for you, but 24 hours it must be done. Otherwise if someone slips and falls, guess what you get sued when they fall.

Now, in this country you can get sued if you clean your walkway? HOW DOES THAT WORK? I mean its dirty, its your walkway!!

I think I better fall over and sue the council, as I could if I trip on the sidewalk during the summer, so maybe the council should be cleaning their sidewalk!

Is there anyone in this country with a brain?

Brogan Private Detective

Just a little shameless self promotion, as the book is coming along nice it.

Brogan was nuts, and not just any kind of nuts, but the kind of nuts that leads you think think, man that guys nuts.

Lots seem to want Brown out...

Well, it seems that Gordo will get through this as support is already digging in, regardless of what happens Monday Gordo will stand strong and deaf to the calls of everyone. I question if it isn't an ear that he is missing instead of an eye, for someone who claims to be listening he doesn't seem able to hear.

This really just brings out more questions, that the press will not ask. I mean why would anyone support Gordo? I mean honestly, not the because he is the best man for the job BS they will feed you, but WHY?

I can only think because there has been so much criminality at the top, money for this, jobs for friends, homosexual trists in groups (Nudge, Nudge), that sort of thing, so they have to protect the man at the top, because when he goes it will all come out, and some people will be on their way to jail.

I still think the story is going to be how Labour are going to finance the election and how they are going to re-finance their loans, as things stand, even with lots of money behind you, why would you give to them when its only going to pay things of, and not actually buy you someone or something.

Bankruptcy hanging like a cloud over Labour

Click the Title to see what The Times has to say about it. I did not read The Time before I wrote what I did below, but I think it is going to happen. Chapter 11 for Labour.

Political Funding

Now, here is a question. Does any one remember the Political Funding problems we have had before, that all the parties promised to sort out, how horrid it was, never again!

Anyone remember how it was settled?

I have an answer for you, its the same one that we will get over expenses, Not Settled Yet.

Predictions -
Labour should go Bankrupt within a year or so, unless it can find some way of re-financing all the debt that is has built up and will build up during the election, which is going to cost it a bomb.
 At least one spending scandle to be exposed for each of the top three parties.
At least one postal voting fraud scandle for labour, as before if not worse. It will consist of various ethnic labour candidates arranging for multiple votes.

England and the Great Snow Fall

Being Canadian I guess I should not be so grumpy about how the English deal with snow, BUT there are some things to be said for all those people who drive 4x4 but still seem unable to drive down a road, nor get their children to school.

First I should state that I have never held English intelligence in high regard, ever since I encounter someone who had been to university yet was unable to do basic math in his head.

Now the secret to snow, salting the road, or gritting, is when it is done.
Your salt trucks should NEVER go out during high traffic, it is a night time job, late at night time job. Yet it seems that is not how it works here.

(Tip to councils, Hire a Canadian to sort it out for you. Also any Canadian could explain to you how to time your traffic lights. Traffic lights should be time to the speed limit, so a car can get from one end of the road to another traveling at the speed limit)

At the hint, from the below 50% hit rate weather service, of cold weather they send out the trucks, and with all the other cars on the road, never mind the trucks, all the salt ends up on the side of the road, doing nothing but destroying the roads.
Now, if you send the trucks out at 3 or 4 in the morning, the salt stays on the road and melts the snow that is falling, it stays there. Then when the traffic starts to flow in the morning, this steps up the melting, and the roads become clear, or at least are driveable, and the next night you do the same thing.
NOW, here is another one of those famous predictions of mine.

Trouble for councils ahead, because of their abusive use of salt at the wrong times, the road, which I am sure they have been using sub-standard tarmac on, will start to fall apart, and thus more people will be complaining and more people suing the councils for money for damage to their cars because of the poor roads.

(This should bring to light the general criminal activity that occurs in most councils in regards to planning and contracting and general works)

New Year - For those who need help - - This is for those MPs who will have no idea what to do when they loose their seats. For those of them who have dedicated their education to Politics, and the study of politics, who now find that the Public has decided not to support them.

What do you do when you have done nothing your entire life other than study politics?

Just the thought of having to deal with a member of the public, and maybe talk to them when working in a call centre, or working a checkout, I mean, thats just, well, its not right.

When you have found the politics means more than keeping receipts and writing out claim forms, come to me...

Cloward–Piven strategy

Cloward–Piven strategy - Just a little light bed time reading for those of you who are interested. Its made me sit up and think, and not in a good way.

Yes I know it is all US focused, but just think about the words that have been used here, by some of the people we "trust" to guide us and run our country, and you know. I think they might be, well, you know.. Thinking this might not be such a bad idea.

Predictions for 2010

Predictions is what this blog is all about, telling the Future History of Great Britian, and as I said before I put enough though into these that I will bet on them.

From what I have been reading, I think there is a possiblity that Gordo might have to fight to stay leader of the party, but since changing the labour leader is something that requires fairy dust (funny pun there for those in the know), and some shoving from behind, it is more than likely that it will amount to nothing, and Gordo will stand a fresh into the election.

Dave is going to have a low key new year, and keep his head down, as it seems everytime he sticks his neck out it happens with facts that do not seem to be 100%, so expect him to let others take the lead and just be the leader, and stand behind everyone while they make the anouncements.

As for Leg over, sorry mister Clegg, he will have the best of the new year, as with the polls showing that Dave doesn't really have it in the bag, and Gordo dealing with all the in fighting, he will be able to get interviewed easily by everyone, and people will see him, and as he is the leader of the third party, the one that has not really had a shot at it, he will pick up the votes he needs to hang the system.

The economy is not going to pick up anytime soon, as prices are going to go up 5%, 2.5 for VAT and 2.5 for the company, lets face it when your in Business you need to make money and the VAT increase gives you the ability to increase your prices. All the big boys are going to do it, again problem is no one will be honest about it.

Expenses is going to run and run, politics is all about the money at the moment, and the current lot do not understand it, and have no chance of understanding it.

To assist everyone in understanding, I give you the following, directly from the Green Book

"The following questions are designed to assist Members in
coming to a decision about whether or not costs incurred are
appropriate to be met from the allowances:
Is this expense genuinely incurred by me in my role as a
Member of Parliament as opposed to my personal capacity?
Is this purchase supporting me in carrying out my
parliamentary duties? Defining parliamentary duties is difficult
but Members may wish to consider (i) the generally accepted
parliamentary functions: the legislative role; the oversight
and accountability role; and the representative role, including
dealing with constituents’ problems and (ii) obligations they
may have, for example as a small employer. Anything which is
done for personal benefit or for electioneering or for the direct
support of a political party will not be part of a Member’s
parliamentary duties.
Does the claim match the purpose of the allowance in question
as set out later in the Green Book?
Could the claim in any way damage the reputation of
Parliament or its Members?
How comfortable do I feel with the knowledge that my claim
will be available to the public under Freedom of Information?"

With the above being mentioned on pages 11, and 12. Not that far to read into a book. We get claims for Gardening, Bath Plugs, DVDs and Candy Bars.

Now in my mind, I would never claim for any of those things, its just not part of my job.

Also, since I would be earning 3 times the average wage, and people on the average wage seem to have nice TVs and DVDs, and some how they also manage to eat, then maybe I should be able to get by with buying my own DVD and candy bar?

No, MPs will never understand.

Readers and Blogging

Right, its even later and I figure I will post one more thing, and explain a little about myself.
I have always been interested in Politics, ever since my time in Canada and seeing how it is done there. In Toronto years ago local councillors pretty much had price lists, if you wanted something done, you paid for it, and it got done, or you got the ability to do what you wanted to do, a permit or whatever.

Paying someone to do something is aways a system that works.

Here in the UK, its this "Class" thing. The "working class" or Labour, think that when they get there it is their "right" to take what is on offer, while the Tories, "Upper Class" just take because they always have.

(This is how it was once explained to me, and pretty much it seems to fit, now the question really is, which is worse?)

Well when you take it because you think it is a "Right" then you forget the second half which is "responsibility", and that is to those who put you in that position in the first place. You get high on the power, and you figure your to clever to get caught, and your own kind will never let you down, and well your walking blindly into a big mess.

When you take it because you always have, you again think it is your "Right", and because you have never really had any responsibility, you don't think about it, but you do know one thing, without the little people to step on, your shoes don't get polished, and if you don't have polished shoes, the people at the club will laugh at you and since you don't want that to happen, you better throw the little people a bone once and a while.

Now this may well look like a bit of a late night rant, and it is, but to explain what I am trying to explain, let me say this.

The problem is the "class" system that everyone in this country keeps on bringing up. There isn't one anymore, be it Eton, or Oxford,  they fail and fall just as far as, Joe the plumber or Greg the chippy. Everyone has to earn a crust. The minute that we the people, can stop talking about "class", the better things will get.

Now as for me, well. I don't do class, I don't do school, I don't do anything unless I enjoy it.

I thank you for reading, and for the year of 2010, I promise to watch the blogs, and the news, and do lots more posting, if you promise to comment and suggest and point, and even laugh, at some of the things I type.

Yours Faithfully,
William G. Grace (Yes, I know about the name, and I hate Cricket, 5 day games to finish with a draw/tie, I mean really, flip a coin or something its quicker!)

P.S. - I am a Canadian, and very proud of it. I travel as a Canadian, I write as a Canadian. I am also British, but not overly proud of it. If you want to know why, step back out of your body, and watch any British people abroad, it is always the most embarassing thing you will ever see, and you ask why people hate you? Take a look at yourselves, and you think the Americians are bad, they have nothing on you.

Suggestions - Or a better way to do things...

I figure while I am here trying to get to sleep, and thinking about all those people in the streets breaking the law, and all those cops inside staying warm, something came to me.

I have noticed these ads on TV and its something I remember when I worked in London, posters staying don't show your phone, and TV ads about leaving things in plain sight. People will steal it if they see it.

Now I was thinking, how about changing those Ads, I mean really. If the police did their job, we would not have so many people walking around who will just jump at the chance to steal something, if people are like that it is because they do not fear what will happen to them when they get caught. There is no fear because they know they will not get caught.

To explain, why not have ads like this.

Scene - Local pub, people drinking having a good time. A man walks in and everyone stops.
 Crowd - Hey Dave they yell, where have you been?
Dave - In  jail.
Crowd -What say the crowd, why?
Dave - Do you remember the last time we went out, we got those burgers and all went home. I stopped to take a piss, and I got caught. Spent 3 weeks in jail, lost my job. All for a piss. It wasn't worth it.
Crowd - Your kidding.
Dave - Nope. Worst thing I ever did.
Voice over - Respect yourself, and others. Be polite, be honest, don't steal, don't do drugs, don't piss in public. Because if you do, its your life.

Now thats just me thinking at 2:49 in the morning, but I think the basic idea is there.

We as the general public should not have to worry about having a nice phone, or leaving a window open. Its those who would take advantage that should worry about what will, and please note I mean "will", happen to them WHEN they get caught.

Only problem you need a police force that actually wants to work, and not the Jack Straw police force staying in to get warm.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year Everyone...

Stay Tuned....
