Go Woke ~ Go Broke

alert to injustice in society, especially racism

a couple totally alert to any form of criticism

In George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four he coins the term Newspeak, which was the language Big Brother’s enforcers used ~ a language designed to diminish the range of thought of the populace.

Here and now, right here in the free world, newspeak is the euphemistic, mealy mouthed language routinely used by politicians, government officials, and left-liberal pressure groups.  It’s a bunch of words, phrases, and attitudes that are intentionally difficult to understand, and / or does not mean what it seems to mean.  The whole point is to confuse and deceive ‘ordinary people’.

In Nineteen Eighty-Four a totalitarian state wields total power over its own citizens, ‘for their own good’.  It’s all about surveillance, propaganda, and control ~ it’s all about quashing any thought or opinion that does not agree with that of the righteous.

This is exactly what we have right here and now, right here in England.  And, looking from here, I’d have to say that you have it worse in the USA.

There are some things that we are told we must believe in; man-made global warming, green energy, LGBTQ+ rights, feminism, critical race theory, the coronavirus pandemic, vegetarianism, and the prevalence of extreme right-wing terrorism.  (I may have missed out two or three things that Californians passionately believe we should all believe in.)

For me, the phrase that perfectly encompasses the whole of modern Newspeak is Climate Change Denial ~ which is spat out in much the same way as Holocaust Denial used to be.  Oh, and of course, the use of that word Trump.

Here in England the chief propagandists for the woke newspeak mindset are; the BBC, the Church, Universities, Big Charities, the Labour and Liberal political parties, sections of the press, and sadly our very own Prime Minister Boris Johnson.  All of which are quite unpopular with people like me, the ‘silent majority’ who actually have all the money these people need if they want to keep on pushing their woke agendas.

But you know what?  We vote with our feet and our wallets, and all of those with a woke left-liberal agenda are hemorrhaging support and going broke.

And just in case you think I am speaking from a position of white privilege, read my post some signs of being poor from earlier today.

Chronic Stress, Anxiety, and Depression

many of the casualties from the coronavirus will be from preventable chronic stress

the torment of chronic stress can kill you

It’s very difficult for me to write this.  I’m confused, fatigued, and fearful.  Who would know that 475 days of enforced isolation could do this to an otherwise healthy person?

For more than a year I’ve been prevented from seeing my friends, going anywhere, or enjoying myself in a normal human manner.  For more than a year I’ve angry, anxious, and distressed, and for most of the time I wouldn’t admit that to myself or to another person.

Although I knew I wasn’t ‘right’ nor ‘healthy’, I didn’t know just how bad it was until I booked a (perfectly permissible), short break in the Mediterranean sunshine of Gibraltar.  Just booking the trip filled me with apprehension, but then it got worse.  I had a severe panic attack; insomnia, nausea, confusion, sweating, headaches, and memory loss.

All of those and more physical symptoms can be attributed to chronic low-level stress and anxiety.  What I had done in merely booking a short trip to get me out of this place was to allow my mind to write a cheque my body wouldn’t cash.

I need help to recover, and I know that with some support I can get over this whole coronavirus insanity.

Of course, if I tell our National Health Service any of this I will be instructed to go into strict self-isolation for 10 days.

Inalienable Rights

life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness

~

To any right-thinking man it is self-evident that governments are created to protect our unalienable rights ~ freedoms endowed upon us by our creator, and which supersede any man-made laws.  These natural rights include; the right to think for oneself, the right to life, the right to self-defence, and these rights remain throughout one’s lifetime.

From the beginnings of common law these were rights which could not be surrendered to the sovereign or government, and were independent of any and all laws.  In fact any contract or law that tries to alienate such rights would be inherently invalid.  There is no act of submission by which man can give up the state of a free agent and enslave himself, for by doing so he would lose his humanity.  He would cease to be a man.

This was the entire point of American Independence, the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution, the abolition of slavery, and in the case of we English the regicide of Charles I in 1649.  Go further back and read the second and most important book of the Torah and the Old Testament, and you will see that the Exodus is also about these same inalienable rights.

And yet, the governments of the supposedly free western world have been using the peoples’ dumb acquiescence to take away these God given rights, on the grounds that it’s for our own good.

Let us leave aside the really big events, things which drove a coach and horses through all of our freedoms, things such as; the Prohibition of Alcohol, Income Tax, the Draft during the Vietnam War, and England joining the European Union.  Instead let us consider the petty restrictions that officialdom has imposed upon us because of the non-existent threats of the COVID-19 virus;

  • house arrest for months
  • a prohibition on meeting other people
  • compulsory wearing of useless face masks
  • compulsory frequent testing for the coronavirus
  • compulsory vaccination by threats and intimidation
  • the closure of bars, pubs, restaurants, theaters, and churches
  • a total prohibition on travel, which is only now being slowly lifted

Actually it’s worse than all that, there has also been a vast propaganda campaign to convince us that the coronavirus is a threat to civilisation as great as the Black Death, and an insidious creeping censorship of the news media.

Once given these controls over the general public, governments and their lackeys will not easily surrender them.  Not any government, not ever.

The Triumph of 1984

there is nothing good nor honourable among the elite

The gross perversion of the duties of politicians, health-officials, doctors, scientists, and law enforcement agencies during this coronavirus crisis, provides a chilling example of how the prospect of almost unlimited power and prestige can distort the judgement of intelligent people.  These people try to justify their actions as following the science, and protecting the NHS ~ they are lying not just the public, but also to themselves.  They are charlatans.

To more fully understand how these once honourable people have descended into an Orwellian elite we must also follow the money.  There are now untold billions of £ $ being thrown at the almost enforced vaccination of hundreds of millions of mostly unwilling people.  A few global pharmaceutical companies are doing very well out of this as are their investors.  One does not need to look very far to see who is included among the investors in Big-Pharm; those self-same politicians, health-officials, doctors, and scientists.

The legal profession is also doing very well out of the coronavirus crisis.  Lord Falconer, a senior left-wing politician, partner in the legal firm Gibson Dunn and leader of their ‘Covid-19 task force’ refers to the pandemic as ‘a gift that keeps on giving…..’  Such elite cynicism makes me sick.

It goes on and on and on.  Here in England people are being urged to get themselves tested for the coronavirus ‘if they have a runny nose…..’  This is England, in February, at least half the population will get a runny nose at this time of year ~ it’s called a cold.  Door-to-door testing programmes are underway, with teams of barely trained testers banging on unsuspecting peoples’ doors.  Anyone entering or leaving the country has to be tested a couple of times or more.  And why is that?  To inflate the number of those supposedly infected with the coronavirus with the objective of increasing public concern and further justifying the draconian measures urged on us by the politicians, health-officials, doctors, scientists, and law enforcement agencies.

None of the numbers are real.  The statistics are a tissue of lies.  The number of deaths attributed to the coronavirus includes all those who have ever tested positive and have subsequently died for any proximate cause or reason ~ like being run over by a bus.

Some say that those with privileges will spin things as being politically correct to further silence those they wish to oppress.  And that truth is hard but propaganda is cheap.  All I know is that the word DENIER is the most chilling thing I have ever heard.

Coronavirus Vaccine

better the Devil you know than the Devil you don’t

It seems that truckloads of Pfizer / BioNTech’s Covid vaccine are on their way from Belgium to the UK, where use of this brand-new miracle cure has just been approved by our medical regulator.  Already our Prime Minister and Health Secretary are claiming that the end to the pandemic is in sight, and that the vaccine would ‘allow us to reclaim our lives and get the economy moving again…..’

I’m not holding my breath.  The initial delivery of this particular vaccine will comprise of 800,000 doses, and given that two doses are required 3 weeks apart this tranche will treat a maximum of 400,000 people.  Allow for logistical problems, wastage, people not turning up for the second dose after the rather nasty side effects from the first injection, and I predict that maybe a quarter of a million people might be properly immunised.

On top of that there are already arguments about who should be treated first, with some saying it should be care home residents and staff, while others insist the first to get the vaccine should be front-line health workers.  That should be fun, the National Health Service has a staff of 1.4 million.  The population of the UK is said to be 67,886,011 people ~ really?  In which case put me down to be inoculated sometime after the first 67 million.

An effective and safe vaccine usually takes more than 10 years to develop, this Pfizer vaccine is hitting the English streets after only 10 months.  This new vaccine is said to be 95% effective.  Really?  The most effective vaccine in medical history to date is the Tuberculosis vaccine which is proven to be 89% effective, while at the other end of the scale the vaccine against the Rotavirus is only 35% efficacious.  The vaccine we are all supposed to have for measles is 69% effective.  So, I don’t believe the coronavirus vaccine will be anything like 95% effective.

Anyway, why bother at all?  Some 1.64 million people in the UK are said to have been infected by the coronavirus, or about 11% of the population.  Really? There are so many false positives as to make the number of stated infections laughable.  Of those infected 59,051 have died, or 0.08% of the population, and even those numbers are so massaged as to be meaningless.

The dry run for the mass vaccination programme is being called Exercise Panacea ~ how appropriate.

Many doctors, nurses, and other health professionals state privately that they will not be submitting to this vaccination.  Neither will I, not ever.

Government Bans Sex

thou shalt not commit adultery

~

Just as the lockdown begins to be eased in England, the government has come up with an extraordinary new regulation designed to stop people from meeting up to have sex.

No person may participate in a gathering which takes place in a public or private place indoors, and consists of two or more persons.

Sex in a public place is already illegal here, so we can’t even find a deserted beach and have moonlight sex in the surf.  Of course, the stupid six foot ‘social distancing’ rule is already in place, which means you can’t even meet up with your love to kiss, hug, or walk and hold hands.  Add to that the number of people who have been in self isolation / quarantine / shielding, the number of people who haven’t been able to travel any distance to meet their paramour, and you can see that the rule has been ‘no sex please, we’re British’.

Studies show that even among married couples, and people who live together, just about 40% of UK adults have been sexually active during the 10 weeks of lockdown.

Good luck on any of this being popular among the English public.  Good luck with many people taking any notice of these laws / regulations.  But, I would expect our law enforcement agencies to become officious sex police, and self-righteous nasty people to inform on their neighbours who they suspect of having sex.

None of this has stopped our politicians and government officials from ignoring all the rules to carry on their illicit affairs during the strictest part of the lockdown here.  It’s still one law for them and a different set of laws for the rest of us.

I wonder if car sex is still illegal?

And, how have hookers made a living in the past 10 weeks?

No Time to Write

Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage.

I need a new plan.  The one I’ve been using this past week doesn’t work.

On the other hand, I’ve been driven by events, rather than choosing my own path.

Having your home broken into kind of does that to you.  In some ways it’s not the invasion, nor the fact that my stuff was taken, it’s all the fucking damned paperwork and admin that follows a burglary that has really been depressing me.  And, I’ll give you one very important piece of advice, never throw away any bill, or receipt, or piece of correspondence.  Keep every fucking piece of paper in organised files for at least 6 years.  If you don’t then you’ll spend forever sorting out the paperwork when some unforeseen event or disaster happens.

I just have, and mine was only a little robbery, not some huge fucking disaster.

Hopefully, things will be better for me in the next few days.

Keep safe.

Always Tell The Truth

A liar will never be believed, even when she speaks the truth.

Everybody lies.  Lies are the oil that lubricates the grinding wheels of interpersonal relationships.  Most people don’t always want to be told the unvarnished truth, especially by their partner ~ for example being told that you look terrible hurts, even if it is the truth.  In a 10-minute conversation the average American will tell two or three lies ~ basically people lie a lot.

There are different kinds of lies, some are small and immaterial, and some are huge, outrageous, and evil.  However a lie is still a lie, even if it’s justified as a well-intentioned white lie, or it’s a lie of omission where we just don’t say anything at all about something important.

Some lies are actually criminal fraud.  For example;

  • lies about your qualifications and work experience on your CV
  • Plagiarism, piracy, and passing-off
  • creating false paperwork to obtain a loan, drivers licence, passport, etc.
  • using false information to complete official forms, for example health insurance

It seems that many people are happy to live with lies like this, telling themselves that it’s just a clever way to beat the system.  Do or say whatever you like, but if you go down this road your life will be a fake.  And, at some point you may get into serious trouble.  As an example, a contract of insurance is a contract uberrimae fidei, (of utmost good faith), if you don’t tell the whole truth on an insurance document the whole thing is null and void.  Your insurance company can refuse your claims, and reclaim any past claims you have made.

If you do lie and cheat, just be ready for the consequences because eventually you will be caught out.  Your fantastic house of cards will just fall apart.  The thing about lying is that you can never know with certainty the risk of being discovered or the severity of the consequences.  Lie in a relationship and you’ll probably get dumped.  Lie in a marriage and you will probably get divorced.

Some say that there’s a fool born every minute.  And that women make the best liars.  All I know is that some truths are best left unsaid.

Useless British Politicians

Self-Serving Useless Politicians are Destroying England’s Future

You can always tell when politicians are lying, because their lips will be moving.

There’s a thing called BREXIT, which is a kind of acronym for the exit of Great Britain from the European Union.  It’s been going on since the referendum on 23 June 2016, when 51.9% of the British people voted to get out of Europe all together.

Since then our utterly useless, supine Prime Minister, Mrs. Theresa May, has lied, procrastinated, and vacillated, doing bugger all about getting this country out of the European Union.  The Prime Minister has been defeated in one vote after another in parliament ~ firstly her original (very bad) exit deal with the European Union was rejected, then her (slightly) amended deal was rejected, and now the idea of leaving the European Union without an exit deal has also been rejected.

WTF do these members of parliament want?

However, the default legal position is that Great Britain will leave the European Union on March 29th, whether there is an exit deal in place or not.  To change that default leaving date will require a change in the law, and that’s not as easy as some stupid politicians think.

However, I have no doubt that our self-serving, dishonest, fucking useless parliament will find some way of delaying the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union ~ indefinitely.

The real deal is that NOBODY KNOWS WTF is going to happen over the next couple of weeks.  Add to that nobody knows WTF is going to happen in the weeks, months, and years following our supposed exit date on March 29th.

Except that the English public will be voting a hell of a lot of these fucking useless politicians out of office come the next general election.

Some say that Brexit is a confusing mess which ever way you voted.  And that Brexit is just like unfriending Europe on Facebook.  All I know is that if the self-serving politicians don’t get on with it there will be Hell to pay.

Some people are psychologically incapable of telling the whole truth about anything.

Mr. Plod the Policeman

There are two people in your life you should never lie to

Lying to ‘Plod’ is almost never a good idea.

It seems had occasion to use the word ‘Plod’ a couple of days ago, and in my version of the English language ‘Plod’ means the Police.  And then I started to think just how many other words we English have for a policeman, or the police in general.  Turns out there’s quite a lot.

But, perhaps it’s not such a good idea to use these slang words around actual policemen, or police women.  Especially don’t say cuntstubble to a WPC.

  • the Bill ~ a shortened form of ‘the Old Bill’.
  • Bizzies ~ a Scouse word, (from Liverpool), meaning the police are always too busy to spend time investigating ordinary crime affecting ordinary people.
  • Bluebottle ~ from Cockney Rhyming slang ‘bottle and glass’ meaning arse.
  • Bobby ~ Sir Robert Peel established the Metropolitan Police in 1829, and Bobby is a short form of Robert.  (Also see Peelers.)
  • the Boys in Blue ~ Self-explanatory, the police wear blue uniforms.
  • Constable ~ a word from English medieval times when a constable was a King’s officer of the peace in armies and castles.  English policemen aren’t officers, they’re constables.
  • Copper ~ an old English word meaning ‘someone who captures’ ~ weird, I thought it had to do with a constable’s badge.
  • the Cops ~ from ‘Copper’.
  • Crusher ~ English Victorian slang, from ‘beetle crushers’ a slang name for the heavy boots Victorian policemen wore.
  • Cuntstubble ~ a very derogatory modern term for a female police constable.
  • the Filth ~ no idea what the etymology for that is, but it’s a pretty derogatory word.
  • the Fuzz ~ again I have no idea what the etymology for that is, but it’s another derogatory word.
  • The Heat ~ said to refer to the red lights some police vehicles carried ~ I doubt that very much.
  • the Law ~ obvious.  But also a shortened form of ‘the Long Arm of the Law’.  Like Canadian Mounties the British police always get their man ~ eventually.
  • the Met ~ London’s Metropolitan Police ~ the largest police force in England.
  • the Narcs ~ an undercover narcotics agent ~ also a police informant.
  • the Old Bill ~ who really knows?  It’s a strictly London term, and I suspect it’s some very nasty cockney rhyming slang.
  • the Pigs ~ just derogatory and originating in 19th century England.
  • Peelers ~ From Sir Robert Peel ~ see Bobby above.
  • Plod ~ Mr. Plod the Policeman is a character in Enid Blyton’s Noddy books.  But if you’ve ever seen an older policeman walking, then you’ll agree that they do plod along.
  • Polis ~ Scottish / Glaswegian slang, and if you’ve ever heard a real Glaswegian talk you’ll know why they say Polis for Police.
  • Rozzers ~ 19th century English slang of mostly unknown etymology.  It may be from Polari slang, (homosexual slang).
  • Scotland Yard ~ this was where the police force was first established in London on October 6th 1829.  (Great Scotland Yard at the rear of 4 Whitehall Place).  The headquarters of the Met. are always called Scotland Yard, (now New Scotland Yard).
  • the Sweeny ~ cockney rhyming slang ~ ‘Sweeny Todd’ = ‘Flying Squad’  The Flying Squad is an elite arm of London’s Metropolitan Police, the Met.
  • the Thin Blue Line ~ describing all that’s between the ordinary populace and anarchy.
  • Woodentop or Woody ~ a uniformed police officer, a derogatory term used by plain-clothes detectives.

As you might expect, many of these terms are more than just a little bit derogatory, and the one’s that aren’t date back to Victorian times.  Anything from London is more than likely cockney rhyming slang.

Of interest to my American friends, an Englishman would never, ever call a policeman ‘Sir’.  That honorific term is only used for someone an Englishman really respects, for Example a very senior member of our Royal family.  Sadly, these days not many Englishmen respect the police any more.
