A Busy Day

Life – Terror. Ecstasy. Fight. Denial. Flight. Failure. PAIN. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Hope. Love. Peace – Death. “Scanxiety.” A word that has featured in several of my posts. For people who have had a cancer diagnosis, undergoing imaging scans, prostate cancer PSA tests, can lead to a variety of emotions. It is common to feel stress or worry in the period before a medical test, during the test, and while waitingContinue reading “A Busy Day”

God Save the Queen – a Fascist Regime

Life – Terror. Ecstasy. Fight. Denial. Flight. Failure. PAIN. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Hope. Love. Peace – Death. HRM Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022) – I was sad, but not surprised, to hear the news of her death. I had been in conversation only days before with a work colleague, I commented ‘I cannot see her (The Queen) lasting until Christmas’. She died just days later, the same day, one year ago,Continue reading “God Save the Queen – a Fascist Regime”

Our NHS

Life – Terror. Ecstasy. Fight. Denial. Flight. Failure. PAIN. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Hope. Love. Peace – Death. This morning I had a post-op appointment, a re-dressing, a follow up to a surgical procedure, performed, at a private Hospital, Spire, paid for by our NHS. Not an unusual occurrence, many minor procedures are being delivered this way, an effort to try and reduce current, record breaking, (6.5 million) waiting lists.  Continue reading Our NHS

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 through governments media ecclesiastical bodies fashion and the education sector. All other issues stem out 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.Continue 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”
