A spiteful chant: Where did humanity go?

Where did humanity go in our time? When did we cease to care about other people’s struggle and their causes? When did that cease to matter? Because in our time, the rich and wealthy are securing more and more resources, while the poor is having no ways to get out of it. The states are closing their borders, stricter rules for refugees and asylum-seekers. While in dictatorships, the harassments and the internally displaced numbers are rising. The rich countries are investing in warfare, but not taking charge for the fleeing refugees from the crisis. They are trying to pay the states in regions and close the borders in migration routes. There is no heart, just cash-money. The heart has left, and the ignorance is rising.

The deaths of civil wars, the displacements of draconian laws and of dictators doesn’t matter. The lack of dialogue and of political freedoms, that doesn’t matter either. The lack of compassion and of political will change is also okay. As long as the troubles from afar doesn’t touch us. However, we will seal of the borders and make sure the innocent victims of internal disputes and skirmishes hopefully can cross the border to the closest country and not seek refugees in Europe or in the United States. Because, we cannot mange to show some humanity and heart.

The blood in your veins should boil, but for most. We don’t give a damn, they don’t give a fig. If their villages are burned to the ground by the military. If the Police is detaining people without any justification. If the state is securing the demise and death on fake imports. All of that doesn’t matter, as long as it doesn’t happen where we are.

This is the despicable. This is the reality. Our time, our reality, what our representatives put forward and make sure to build big invisible walls and mechanisms to close borders. To make it less achievable and costly to cross. Even more dangerous, as the perils of death and destruction at home isn’t better. But to leave can also cost your life, either by crook or by the book. Secondly, there will be nobody to even care to look.

This should be disgusting. Knowing that people are dying fleeing civil-wars and dictatorship, than when they are entering our safe havens; there is no one caring for their ills and troubles. They will just shrug it off like dirt on their shoulders and move on. There is lack of solidarity and heart. I hope in my time, that the Republic’s and Nation’s that close their borders never start warfare with themselves. As the ones who saw what we did. Might also give us no helping hand. They might say, we saw what your parents did to us. Why should we save the kids to such despicable people? Why do you deserve safe haven, when you couldn’t help our kind in need?

That is what I worry about, because we never know when the tide change, when society start to deteriorate or self-destruct. That is within us and we never know. We could be next, right now it is our brothers from afar, next time it could our closest neighbor or even ourselves. Than, they will remember our cold hearts and lack of compassion in the times of need. Peace.

Windrush: David Lammy MP letter to PM Theresa May – “Re: Windrush cases – Exceptional Case Funding” (17.05.2018)

Opinion: Why is PM May deliberately stupid?

Today on the 13th May 2018, Prime Minister Theresa May wrote an article on Facebook called: ‘Trust me, I’ll take back control — but I’ll need your help’. This is an article on her defense on her and her parties stance on Brexit, as it is supposed to address the lacking framework for the negotiations with the European Union, as the United Kingdom is withdrawing their membership. However, she must think the electorate of United Kingdom are a bunch of fools.

Since she wrote first this: “We will leave the Single Market because staying in the Single Market means continued free movement of people, but we will maintain the strongest possible trading partnership with our European neighbours and create new trade deals around the world ensuring that we seize the opportunities to build an economy that works for everyone”. Than to continue the hogwash, she wrote this: “And we will leave the Customs Union so we can establish our own independent trade policy and negotiate trade deals in our interests. I have proposed different options for a new customs arrangement with the EU and the government will continue to develop them during the negotiations”. Later, the final nail in coffin of nonsense, she wrote this: “This means there can be no hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland, or between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK. We will uphold the Belfast Agreement in full – and we will ensure the constitutional and economic integrity of the whole United Kingdom. Second, any agreements must create as little friction as possible for trade to protect the jobs that rely on speedy and integrated supply chains. These are a valued part of our economy, particularly for our manufacturing regions”.

So the takeout of this masterpiece of nonsense, was that the United Kingdom with the Tories at the helm, will leave the Single Market and the Customs Union, while trying to get friction-less trade. I hate to say it, but that will be impossible. As the standards for trading with the EU isn’t like that and they will not configure the whole system to fit the hands of May. She might think she is the wisest of them all and the Princess all of Europe looks up-too. However, she and Her Majesty’s Government have to follow guidelines. That is within reason of everyone else and all the other member states of the Union.

If the UK leaves the Single Market and Customs Union with the EU, they will be a significant less important trading-partner by default. They will have to have a hard-border, tariffs and check-points of delivery of the product in and between the British isles. I know that the Tories will say this is not true, but if making themselves a Third-Party State to the European Union, means the trading agreements will be as hectic as they are for Zimbabwe or any other random partner trading with the EU. It will be friction, there will be tariffs and will be checks of goods. The borders and movement of funds will be costly, as the third-party nation will not have advances and securities directly with the EU. That is why the standards and the tariffs are there. Because the EU will secure trading directly with other partners and within the Union. The ones who has already signed-off to be part of the Single-Market and its business model.

Theresa May should understand that with the disconnect from both entities within the EU, there will not be possible of a stop of goods and services. The trading agreements with the EU might help, but that will be new negotiations and also suspend possible trading that exists today. Because the EU cannot have similar standards as today with a Third Party State.

That is why I think May is deliberately stupid, as she should know better. She thinks she can mix sewage and water in the same pipes, not thinking someone will catch cholera. But that is what she does. She promise golden roads to heaven, but she should have idea what the proposals really means. As an outsider, I can say that I think, she is acting like a fool, and she takes the British for a ride. Unless, that is what the Kingdom likes to played around like pawns, while the Tories play power games with them. Because that is how it seems. As the deadline for withdrawal is there… getting closer and the Tories are looking more depleted, than anyone should think was possible. Peace.

Brexit: The PMQ Today shows obvious signs that PM May doesn’t know what sort of deal she wants!

The Prime Minister Questions in the House of Commons this Wednesday 9th May 2018, proves a certain thing. That the Conservative Party and their coalition is not prepared or has any signs of where they are heading with the Brexit Negotiations. It is hectic mess of own dodgy unstable government, which is marred with internal conflict and egos. That all want their slices of the pot, but is not considering the implications of their actions. How can I say that, well, let me take the significant answer from PM Theresa May today, which show it all!

We are leaving the customs union. What we are doing is ensuring that we deliver customs arrangements but leave the customs union, ensure no hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland, as frictionless trade with the EU as possible, and an independent trade policy. What would Labour give us? It wants to go into a customs union with the European Union, with no say over trade policy and with Brussels negotiating trade deals in its interests, not our own. The Labour manifesto said that it wanted to strike trade deals, but now it has gone back on that policy. Typical Labour—letting Britain down once again” (Theresa May, 09.05.2018).

It is like she is dreaming, its like she doesn’t know how the European Union operates or how negotiations work. As she is thinking she can get the specialized agreement with “non” or “soft-border” in Ireland/Northern Ireland, however, still having hard borders towards the rest of the Union. Where they will not be delivering to the protocol of trade or movement. Because that is the main issue of the Brexiteers. That is not how the world works or how the EU would accept. Because if you have soft-border one place, you have soft-border all around the island.

When I hear the PM speak, has she heard from the EU:

The European Union is giving the U.K. a take-it-or-leave-it offer over customs union membership. Remaining in the regime must be on the EU’s terms, the conditions won’t change, and it would mean Britain having no independent trade policy, Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier warned. “We can’t change our rules; our rules will remain the same,” Barnier told a business conference in Sofia on Thursday. “When you’re in a customs union for goods, like Turkey for example, you become part of a common trade policy — you don’t have autonomy anymore.” (Okov, Slav & Wishart, Ian – ‘EU Won’t Adapt Customs Union Rules to Suit Britain, Barnier Says’ 26.04.2018, Bloomberg).

So clearly, the mark has been missed. The Tories has no idea about this trade-deals and the movement, as the EU will be hard-lining the rules and regulations that all the member-states has put together. That is why the Tories are walking towards becoming a third-party state to the EU and will meet the same demands that has. Seemingly, the Brexiteers are thinking of how that will be. Its like the British is forgetting that to get into the marketplace, you have to follow the standards of that one. You can try to make your own, but that takes time. And the time is not the side of the UK right now. They have less time, they have squandered the time and now the clock is ticking.

Therefore, I have hard to believing the PM understand or has underestimated the consequences, maybe because it doesn’t hit home. It everyone else, just like the sorry misfortune of the Windrush generation, this sort of diplomatic and foreign affairs doesn’t directly hit the PM and her party. That is why it doesn’t cost to botch it or to misuse the precious time to get it fixed.

We know she did repeat herself later while answering a question put by Matt Western:

As I said earlier, there are two options for delivering on the objectives that we have set. We will leave the customs union, we want to ensure that there is no hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland, we want to ensure that there is as frictionless trade as possible between the UK and the EU, and we want to ensure that we can have an independent trade policy. I say to the hon. Gentleman that what is not credible is a Labour party policy that wants us to be in a customs union, giving all the power for negotiating our trade deals to Brussels, with no say whatsoever for the UK” (Theresa May, 09.05.2018).

Therefore, the Brexiteers are still leaving the Kingdom into problematic shores, as they are cannot count on the paradigm shift or what the Tories really want. It is obvious with the talk and answers, that the UK Government, don’t know or doesn’t understand the implications it will bring. Like they are naive and thinking they can get it exactly how they want and without any costs. That is not how these sort of things play out. However, then again, it is done by David Davis and Boris Johnson, so I am sure road to oblivion sounds better than Hackney. Peace.

The Tories proved yesterday that shielding PM May is more important than the Windrush Generation!

Again, the Tories, the Theresa May backed alliance and the United Kingdom ruling party voted against the better judgement on a serious matter. As they have certainly overstepped and also misused their authority, by naming the Windrush Generation as ‘illegals’. They have again proven a point by their rulings within the House of Commons, where the majority of the Tories and their alliance members decided to close the inquiry and also look into the paperwork that has led to the people, whose been living in the kingdom for generation to be sent home. The lack of understanding and also self defence, proves that the Tories are afraid, that this will expose the time when Theresa May was the Secretary of Home Office. That she put forward the agenda, that Amber Rudd continued. Therefore, the Tories are shield the PM, but not the constituents. You really see who matters and who doesn’t in society, when the Tories are shielding themselves, but not opening for the reality of what they did.

Take a look:

That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, that she will be graciously pleased to give directions that the following papers be provided to the Home Affairs Committee: all papers, correspondence and advice including emails and text messages, from 11 May 2010 up to and including 1 May 2018, to and between Ministers, senior officials and Special Advisers relating to policy decisions including on the Immigration Acts 2014 and 2016 with regard the Windrush generation cases, including deportations, detentions and refusal of re-entry, the setting of deportation and removal targets and their effect on the Windrush generation, and action taken within Government following the concerns raised by Caribbean Governments with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office including the original decision by the Prime Minister not to meet Caribbean Heads of Government and officials, and all copies of minutes and papers relating to the Cabinet’s Immigration Implementation Taskforce” (Opposition Day – Windrush Generation Standing Order 9, 02.05.2018).

Because on this matter, it was following the party lines, it was the Conservatives, the Democratic Unionist Party and one independent that voted Noes to it, they we’re a total of 316. While the ones voting Ayes, was the Labour, Green Party, Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru, Scottish National Party and they are total of 221. Therefore, the documents get to be behind close doors, unless a whistleblower releases a dossier of information to hurt the agenda of May. Since she is now shielded for her scrupulous activity as the previous Home Secretary.

This is really insane, that the Tories are shielding the Prime Minister over the lives of people whose whole life has been in the United Kingdom, that the determination and the decisions to keep the blatant disregard for their lives over one person’s political life. It really shows how little policy or little lives matter to the Conservatives, when they can destroy others, but cannot investigate themselves. This is a refusal to open government and to see what the Tories did wrong.

The UK government should be ashamed, should be disgusted and be in disbelief, they are not the pillar of democratic values, and neither a beacon of hope in the midst of bad behaviour. Because they are doing that themselves to their own citizens, stripping them of their nationhood and calling them illegal. When they have lived there generations and where allowed to enter back-in-the-day.

Nothing noble about this. It’s a theft of other people’s hard work and dedication, their will to move and settle down. Its theft of hope and also courage to move to a foreign place to set up shop. Instead of fixing the issues, they made it worse and now they cannot even stomach people looking into the mess the Tories themselves created. Because, because they are afraid of what May did in the past. Cowards, weaklings and disgusting human beings who should look into themselves and their attitudes as they have put other people in disarray, but are not doing anything to promise to fix it.

Except saving the grace of her grace, the Prime Minister, because she is apparently more important than the commoners, the people and the ones who seek refuge in the United Kingdom back-in-the-day. Peace.

Be woke!

Never let anyone take your soul, take your spirit and thinking mind. Not accept everything said and done. Put questions on to the men and woman in power, not just accept it. There are secrets and there are state secrets, but that doesn’t mean we can rationally questioned the ones who represent us. That is what we have to do. We cannot accept to just shuffle their snow and their regulations, without any contribution coming our way.

We have to question the social media, the media itself and also the written word. The government press releases will be the subtle and wanted spin on the manner. They can try to say it rosy affair, when we know their was dirty laundry behind the scenes, kinda like CD full of hits like Shakira’s Laundry Service.

As the people are tired after work and trying to live hand to mouth, as the corporations are getting more wealthy. The major political parties are working for corporate greed and the 1% wealthy, we have to question, if the system we have is the right one. If this is how it is supposed to be. We might not have to much slave-trade in the world at the moment, but the biggest corporations are really reeling and betraying the ideals of fair trade and righteous wages for their workers. Even Unions are squashed, the tariffs are hurting the low-level productions and the strict codes of conduct, even stops some from exporting to major markets.

The poor is kept, so that the aid industry can continue to be relevant, also so the rulers can beg for loans and donations for state institutions without having much of transparency and neither real results. Misusing the funds for own personal gains and elites, which offers the needed Forex Exchanges. This is all happening day-to-day and no-one blinks of an eye. We just let it happen, clap our hands and gives a coin. But not question how the operations are done and why the Lesser Developed States doesn’t evolve or even deliver governance that matter. That is because it doesn’t, it is cycle of desperation and despair, where the poor is used by both parties, while the public sympathy abroad is securing the need of delivering more direct state aid. Even if the rulers has no plan of making sufficient systems or building institutions, because if that happens. Then the donors will back-off and the funding for the lavish and easy life-style will vanish. An unjust ruler cannot let go off the simple money delivered smack-daddy in the middle of the face with very few strings attached. The game is rigged and some elites are eating the whole plate.

It is with this in mind, we needs to question ourselves and be woke. We need to ask ourselves, is the world we want? Where lobbyist and elites are trading the resources, where the states are near vassal states of the superpowers, even the dwindling ones like the United States. While Russia and China is promoting their clear agenda. China is rigging itself nicely with major loans, big infrastructure building and economic stimulus. Not only to make partnership with this states, but also to secure the first hand grab in needed resources. Even get control of the infrastructure if the state starts to fail on their loans. The latest victim for this tactic was Sri Lanka. We will know that more nations will fall as prey for this. It is just a matter of time, before someone lacks funding for loans and default.

Not that I have all the answers, I don’t, I usually have to few and asks questions, because we have to see and the steps ahead is uncertain. We cannot anticipate how it will go, but the ones in power. The ones with the biggest cut, will not share. They will lie and deceive to trick us, to make us feel okay and move-on. Instead of we questioning why they are ruling, why the corporations are taking over and why they are allowed to do what they do.

We have to question, we cannot accept that all of the media on one side or another sounds like robocalls of each other. Where the media isn’t checking and balances of the power, but instead are making enough drama and enough entertainment. So that ignorance breathes ideocracy. We could have questions, we could have minds, where the state isn’t arrogant and ignorant of the needs of the people, but they are, because they are more vital for consumption, but not for service delivery. When it becomes like that, then the nations are lost. Also the real advantages of our times.

When Multi-National Corporations, Multi-National Organizations and Big Corporate Media is working together and making sure we doesn’t think of what they do and how it becomes the way it are. Not because everything is devious. Because everything is not made with the mind control, with the ability to spin. But it is made for profit and made for the cash. The world moves on the currency and the monies made that day. If there wasn’t money in wars, there wouldn’t been invested such vast amount of money in killing people. Mercenaries is a thriving business, hired guns in international operations are a thing. Dark money is a thing, because the society is not supposed to tax every industry.

We still need to question their behavior, even as we their main motivation and their reason for existing in our lives. To deliver products, but also profits for their shareholders. That doesn’t mean their should have total secrecy and not be transparent in their ways of handling affairs and employees. As well, as Multi-National Organization, which needs to deliver Bi-Lateral Agreements and Negotiations. They are important to create trust and security. To check the states, but when they get to friendly and become hired guards, than we should worry. When the United Nations Organizations get to involved, instead of being their on short time mandate and with backing for the International Community. We should worry that this weakens the sovereign nations and the institution building, as the UN Organizations are there instead. Creating the same vacuum for the rulers as the Non-Government-Organizations, which are there to deliver one mission, but ends up filling the gap of the state. So the state doesn’t have to work on the matter, because foreign donations and work covers it.

That is the grandest of it, the lacking questions, it isn’t a quick fix. This wasn’t created in a swift hand. This system wasn’t there from just yesterday, it has been there for years and we need to think and ask. Is this the best we can up with? Isn’t there other ways to make sure of governance and institution building? Isn’t there a better way to secure the free mind and spirits? Or do we need to live in fear?

There are many questions, many unanswered, but there is a need to ask. I don’t have the answers. But we cannot hide under a rock and anticipate that it moves on its own. That only happens to Jesus. For the rest of us, we have to find tools, call for help or start digging in the dirt around the rock to get out.

Ask questions, write what you like, but don’t just accept everything. Being critical is good and doing more research on matter is good to. Because we need that to have a healthy discussion about our time and our problems. That is why I have little answers, but have questions. Because I don’t fear asking them. Neither should you. Peace.
