Would the last Free Marketeer to leave the Tory Party please turn out the lights?

Life – Terror. Ecstasy. Fight. Denial. Flight. Failure. PAIN. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Hope. Love. Peace – Death.  Conservatism Isn’t Working Beneath the bluster and big promises, Conservative rule has become no more than shifting the blame for Britain’s problems. Even in the Conservative party, there is growing doubt about the British free-market economy it largely created. Remember, ‘the good old days’? History tells us that, over-proud, old countries that usedContinue reading “Would the last Free Marketeer to leave the Tory Party please turn out the lights?”

Privatisation

Life – Terror. Ecstasy. Fight. Denial. Flight. Failure. PAIN. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Hope. Love. Peace – Death. Privatisation – ‘the transfer of a business, industry, or service from public to private ownership and control’. The privatisation of United Kingdom public assets, all paid for by taxpayers (us), sold off on the cheap so they could exploit yet more money out of the public is failing us on a grand andContinue reading “Privatisation”

Graduation Graduation Graduation

Life – Terror. Ecstasy. Fight. Denial. Flight. Failure. PAIN. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Hope. Love. Peace – Death. I love LIPA graduations. The end of three years of hard work, celebrations, congratulations, the difficult time to say goodbye (but not farewell) to my amazing students. Many of them good friends, some for life. A joyous day and night. My first graduation, my own (2001), as a student at the tender ageContinue reading “Graduation Graduation Graduation”

Blackshirts and Reds

Life – Terror. Ecstasy. Fight. Denial. Flight. Failure. PAIN. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Hope. Love. Peace – Death. All conservative ideologies justify existing inequities as the natural order of things, inevitable outcomes of human nature. If the very rich are naturally so much more capable than the rest of us, why must they be provided with so many artificial privileges under the law, so many bailouts, subsidies and other special considerationsContinue reading “Blackshirts and Reds”

There is More to Life Than Profit

Life – Terror. Ecstasy. Fight. Denial. Flight. Failure. PAIN. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Hope. Love. Peace – Death. Business has shaped the world in pursuit of profit and growth with an apparent disregard for consequences, other than increased profits. The 21st Century process of insatiable value creation has been extraordinarily successful in creating wealth through satisfying consumers’ needs and wants. The world’s fortune is at a historical peak: the global economyContinue reading “There is More to Life Than Profit”

Social Values

Life – Terror. Ecstasy. Fight. Denial. Flight. Failure. PAIN. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Hope. Love. Peace – Death. Currently the biggest problem in the modern society is brainwashing via governments, media, ecclesiastical bodies, fashion and the education sector. All other issues stem from people being brainwashed and puppeteered by these sectors. Social values include justice, freedom, respect, community, and responsibility. In today’s world, it may seem our society doesn’t practice many values. TheContinue reading “Social Values”

A Conservatives Economy

Life – Terror. Ecstasy. Fight. Denial. Flight. Failure. PAIN. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Hope. Love. Peace – Death. As we inch towards the replacement for the worse political leader in (my) living memory, the political feeding frenzy is reaching fever pitch. The now accepted as the norm, ‘say fuck all’, ‘do fuck all’ until you absolutely have to approach, from politicians has been temporarily abandoned.   Politicians on all sides ofContinue reading “A Conservatives Economy”

Circadian Rhythms

Life – Terror. Ecstasy. Fight. Denial. Flight. Failure. PAIN. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Hope. Love. Peace – Death.  Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday? No mater the day of the week I awake close to 7.00am on a workday or not? Frustrating? Think of the positives, there are in fact two 7.00 o clocks in one day after all? All that ‘spare’ time to do stuff! This was not alwaysContinue reading “Circadian Rhythms”

Stereotactic Ablative Radiation Therapy (SABR)

Life– Terror. Ecstasy. Fight. Denial. Flight. Failure. PAIN. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Hope. Love. Peace – Death.  Also known as stereotactic body radiation treatment or CyberKnife® (SBRT), is a highly focused radiation treatment that gives an intense dose of radiation concentrated on a tumour, while limiting the radiation dose to the surrounding organs. Lowering the risk of collateral damage. SABR differs from conventional radiation in several ways. Stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT)Continue reading “Stereotactic Ablative Radiation Therapy (SABR)”

I Read the News Today, Oh Boy

Life– Terror. Ecstasy. Fight. Denial. Flight. Failure. PAIN. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Hope. Love. Peace – Death.  Free Market – Capitalism To recap: inflation is at a 40-year high, fuel prices have repeatedly hit record levels and a global recession is a real threat. While the government (backed by the majority of the UK media) lambasts rail workers, teachers and the (Scottish) Police, (protecting profit) demanding restraint on worker pay, warning of the dangersContinue reading “I Read the News Today, Oh Boy”
