been a good news/bad news sort of a week. Good news, in that Boris won the
election with a sizeable majority so now we can finally get on with Brexit and leaving the
EU. I never thought I would be glad to see a Tory Government elected but like
many working class, Boris was the only choice to finally settle the debate and
I would like to say a huge thank you to the people of England who turned out to
vote and make it happen. I feel, for the first time in a very long time, hopeful and optimistic about the future of the country and I think the UK will thrive from here on and that we have a lot to look forward to.
The sheep here turned out to vote for the
tribes, as usual. However, there were a few upsets. Sinn Fein lost Foyle to the
SDLP and the DUP's, Nigel Dodd’s lost his seat too. Unfortunately, it was
to Sinn Fein so that was a bit of a double-edged sword!
With the EU out of the way, the
buck will now stop in Westminster (at least, it will once we are out) and our
politicians will now (hopefully!) be more accountable for their policies and
actions. At least, it will be easier to hold them to account.
Other good news on the election
front, was the non-election of Jo Swinson who got a lesson in reality -
self-righteous pontificating isn't really much of a policy and a bit of advice
for Jo, just because The Guardian say it,
doesn't make it true. Now, Jo will have to get a real job and work for a
living. Welcome to the real world!
Labour too, got a hard lesson
in reality. They deserted the working-classes and now the working-classes have
deserted them, at least, temporarily. Although, I was sorry to see Dennis
Skinner lose his seat.
Labour hasn't been a
working-class party for years, like the politics of Northern Ireland, their
view of the world is out of date and so are most of their policies. What we
have also seen, is that reality trumps ideology and we are now moving towards a
post-ideological world. The extremes of right and left ideology no longer
work when faced with the practical reality of life. Labour needs to restructure
and start living in the real world and not in some 'socialist' Utopian ideal
that exists only in the minds of those who have only ever lived comfortable,
middle-class lives. Especially, when in recent years, they pontificate and
insult their voting heartlands with their self-righteous grand-standing and try
to ignore the voice of that majority.
On the bad news front, we lost
Dr David Bellamy, the naturalist and critic of the 'climate change' fraud. His
opposition to that fraud saw him side-lined by the media and many of the
environmental groups he was involved with. I hope the day is coming soon when
the lies of the mainstream media are finally exposed on this and with the EU
out of the way, that will, I hope, be the end to their funding of the
propaganda and distortions of the truth.
And if anyone is still in doubt
about 'climate change', answer this one simple question (even Jo Swinson could
work this one out!)
Who is more likely to tell you the truth
about the effects of Co2 on the climate of this planet?
A - An American politician, Al Gore?
B - An unqualified and uneducated, 16 year
old with a learning disability, Greta Thunberg?
C - A naturalist and environmentalist with
a Phd in Botany and over 40 years of campaigning on the environment, Dr David
On the news/news front, since you cannot
trust the BBC or any of the mainstream services, I would recommend Sky News
Australia. A completely different beast from Sky News UK which, I would
never allow in the door but a great channel with some great commentators. You
can find it on Youtube.
So, roll on 2020, and the US
election. This will probably return a massive vote for Trump since the US
is also enduring the same self-righteous grandstanding that we have endured
from the Neo-Liberal Fascist's in our midst but from the Democratic Party in
their propaganda war of lies as they try to cover up Biden's dirty deals in
Ukraine. Watch this space...
