Opinion: The Tories lost badly in the By-Elections…

The tide is turning and the Conservative Party isn’t able to gain trust or results, which matters in the polls. The two by-elections went to the opposition. In Wakefield the constituency returned back to Labour. While Tiverton and Honiton went to the Liberal-Democrats (Lib-Dems). Tiverton has been a solid constituency for the Tories since 1841. So, things are really shaking.

These two by-elections happened because the former Wakefield MP Imran Ahmad Khan molested a 15 year old kid. While Neil Perish, the former MP for Tiverton and Honiton was caught watching porn twice in the chambers of Parliament. So, it was horrific scandals that brought these by-elections to happen. Not some jokes or silly adventures. No, this was scandals, which was righteous to begin with.

It is now clear that everything is lost for the party. They have lost both seats for now. The By-Elections has ensured the losses and it a double too. Not just one of and a bad one. No, both places went to the opposition. One returned back Labour in Wakefield. While the biggest shocker was in Tiverton and Honiton, as the Tories has held this for decades.

These two loses are bad enough for the party. In addition the Oliver Dowden MP has resigned as the Chairman of the party. Therefore, it is a triple loss and the Tories aren’t growing in strength. The numbers from these elections should be a shocker. The Tories has already lost other by-elections in this term too. So, it is not like these was on off, but a continuation of the other losses.

The Tories continues to have a majority in Parliament. However, this is a signal from the public. They rather vote for Labour or Lib Dems than vote for the Tories. The opposition should unite and strategically field candidates to beat the Tories. That’s how they can win and overcome the majority of the Tories in the up-coming elections alone. They need to unite their forces and strategically plan to overcome the Tories. That’s if they are smart and thinks ahead of the next General Election.

However, it doesn’t matter how self-serving, entitled and arrogant the Tories are right now. They have the majority and are still in power. The Tories have the offices and are in control. Yes, it is a terrible loss and yet more by-elections, which it has lost. Boris Johnson as MP haven’t seen much of winning since his snap election and proroguing parliament.

The public is disregarding his way of running the government. They are enlighten enough to see the damage, the pain and the suffering it is causing. The Brexit has no positive results either, party-gate isn’t doing anyone any favours and neither is the outcome of the banishing asylum-seekers to Rwanda either. That is all just showing what the state is willing to do and certainly the Tories isn’t showing they are worthy of being the custodians of the state itself.

That’s why the Labour and Lib-Dems are winning seats. The public is tired of the austerities and inflations. The public is tired of the negative spiral without any end. While the wealthy and the donors of the Tories are living larger than life. If not they are getting peerage and appointed to the House of Lords.

We are seeing a shift and the perception of superiority of the Tories are dwindling. The downturn is on the horizon and the fall of the Tories in inevitable. That’s why the Labour and Lib-Dems should pick up the call and find their way. Especially consider the Greens too and use all means to takeover in unison. Because, that would be a shocker and a wise decision…

The public don’t trust the Tories and the results of these two by-elections proves that. Now, with the displeasure of the public. The Tories can either change the way they operate or further make things worse for themselves. They are starting to get hit electorally and the public isn’t going behind their messages. Therefore, the tides is turning, but will the party listen?

I don’t think they will… but the only way they can keep power is if the opposition is living on a prayer. If they are trying to change this… the time is now and the recent results should be used to galvanize the parties in opposition. In such a manner that they can actually win and the Tories hold of power. Peace.

United Kingdom: Operation Save the Big Dog Part II was “successful”

Today the 1922 Committee of the Conservative Party launched the “No Confidence” vote in the Prime Minister. What is very clear is that the public and plenty of citizens are tired of his term. They have seen how inept, dishonest and disingenuous, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is. There is nothing honest, up to the codes of conduct or sincere about the man. His only a man who bashes in arrogance and deceptions.

There has already been one round of saving the Saving the Big Dog. Today can be the second one. This was Part II of Operation “Save the Big Dog”. That is very clear as 211 MPs voted for him and only 148 MPs voted against him. This means that the PM gets to stay in office for another year. Unless, he see himself fit to order a snap election. Nevertheless, it is a victory, but not a lasting one.

The Prime Minister has no levels of real genuine trust. Neither does the PM have any worthy leverage. He has only disasters awaiting and he got nothing to offer. What he has done is self-serving and disinterested in actually governing. That’s why the donors of the Tories are happy with austerity and the current manner of politics. Which is favouring the wealthy, but not the lower classes of society. As that is hurting in the post-pandemic, Brexit ramifications and what else the Tories has to “offer”.

The Prime Minister was saved tonight, but not for long. The knives are out and there might be a cabinet reshuffle. Not only from the people who has resigned, but within the midst of the PM. As he knows there are people who aims to get rid of him. He will ensure the ones who did that will be touched by him. The ones who was loyal will get plum-jobs and nice titles. Just like he always does and let them all of the hook.

It is really amazing that a dishonest bloke like Boris Johnson could survive this. The amounts of people dying, needlessly during the pandemic and the parties hold during lockdown… should all be easy reasons for either resigning or “no confidence”. However, there is accountability or codes, which these MPs cares for. No, they are just thinking of keeping power and won’t challenge with internal battle for the office.

This will force it to happen at a later date. It is not like the public or the citizens has any trust in them. The Tories MPs sounded like algorithm prepared speeches to salvage the PM. Like people don’t know he wined-and-dined, while people couldn’t attend funerals. Heck, student lost scholarship and ability to study because of a party. Which was destroying that’s persons future, but if the student had been the PM. He would have enjoyed the perks of the office and been living large to this day without any consequences. That’s how unfair this is and his only gotten a few fines. Lied about being sorry and said “he would do it all again”. That’s the sort of PM he is.

Boris doesn’t care. Boris don’t mind the pushback. No, Boris only wants to live, breathe and be the big dog. He don’t care how he does it and with what cost. As long as he get to be the man and the man who is at the top. That’s who he is and the fellow MPs are vouching for it.

That he won today isn’t surprising. However, this inept and conniving man won’t make things better. It will only get worse. The associates and allies will proclaim victory. Nevertheless, a lame-duck PM and a dead-man walking he is. If he don’t know it… sooner or later someone close by will tell him.

Now, that the MPs will not do the job. Maybe the public can rebuke these people and get other people into power. Because, these people are not representing the public will anymore. They are not listening to them or caring about their say. No, they are just in it for their pockets. Peace.

Opinion: Boris will never take any responsibility for his own actions

Today is a day of reckoning, but don’t expect anything to come out of it. No, Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his government will never be hold accountable. They haven’t answered for the dead or unnecessary pains and suffering during the lockdowns. The PM haven’t answered for Partygate and haven’t paid his dues for that even. While students, citizens and others has lost their careers over the same plights.

That the industries are hurt by the “Third country” regulations isn’t the fault of the government. No, the people are just producing wrong products and not working hard enough. The ones producing whiskey and struggling to sell it through the new protocols to the European Common Market. Tough love and live with it. The same with the seafood and shell-fish industry, which has been severely hurt by Brexit. There been so many people who has lost their livelihoods or made it harder to trade.

Alas, it isn’t only the Northern Ireland Protocol that is the issue. It is just red-herrings upon red-herrings. The Bank of England dropping a report of a weekly loss of £440m, which only shows the costs of the Brexit. This is all across and the unemployment is growing, a strong stagnation and the years of austerity isn’t achieving anything. The poor is getting less and the rich has shell-companies with headquarters in Dublin. Therefore, they are not feeling the pinch, but the citizens are feeling it.

I don’t know how many times I have seen pictures of Tesco’s and Asda’s where there is lack of fruits and vegetables. Because, the lorries and the companies are not able to get enough produce through the protocols post-Brexit. The PM and his party promised less red-tape and throw forms in the bin. However, the industries, shipping-companies and everyone has been hit with more. There isn’t a soft movement and people are getting charged with the additional costs. If they can even afford or have the time to import it.

The citizens are even shocked of the prices of roaming data on their cellphones in Europe. The United Kingdom is a real third country and can banish asylum-seekers to Rwanda. However, the costs of trading and the financial implications are hitting home. Londongrad is hit and the financial institutions are damaged too. The businesses of UK aren’t the same as before and the downgrade is bound to happen.

The Tories has damaged the economy and internally it’s a reason why Labour is in control of Wales. Why the Scottish National Party (SNP) is the majority in Scotland and now the Sinn Fein has a majority in Northern Ireland. That’s because everyone else has reacted to the means and the ways the Tories have been governing of late. It is a reaction to the current affairs and belief that someone else actually knows what they are doing.

Boris Johnson promised a microwave ready deal and easier life. The only thing his delivering is higher costs, stagnation and worse financial forecasts. The state is losing and things are not looking better. The Tories has depleted and ensured measures that is hurting the economy. It is just like they got the freedom outside of the EU, but didn’t consider the implications of it and thought it would be without a price. Now the costs and the bills are coming to the public and the exporting industries.

While Boris doesn’t care… his just happy the pints and the wine-and-dine during the lockdown didn’t cost him anything. He only paid minor fines and didn’t have any real consequences to him. That’s why his not concerned that people having plights, that the working-class is struggling and the poor is left behind. They just have to pick up his slack and hope for magic to cover expenses. However, his party and associates don’t care. They just wants your votes and abandon you afterwards.

The proof of the remainers and the messages of possible damage of a Brexit has all come true. The results are now here and the people are feeling the pinch. The Tories doesn’t care and their arrogance is without no end. It is really unique… and they are proud of it too. The entitlement and they are not fearing the possible outrage of the people either. They just know and think they can dupe the public in the next snap-elections or whatnot. Since, the Labour, Liberal-Democrats or Greens aren’t that strong alone, but if they forge an alliance. They can become a threat to the Tories. As long as that doesn’t happen. These folks will believe they will have the majority again and think they can trick the public to vote for them again.

That the public votes for these sleazes are amazing. It is like they want the suffering and the plights. They want people who looks down upon them and demean them. That take away their benefits and gives tax-cuts to the rich. This is what the Tories does and people should be aware of this.

Boris Johnson isn’t just a liar, but he doesn’t want to be held accountable. If he is… he skips it and jump over the hurdles. Hoping that an international crisis can get people to forget about the current issues at home. He has created a lot of this. The Brexit problems and costs are self-inflicted by him and him only. Boris said everything was fine-and-dandy, but that wasn’t the truth.

Now, he got to take credit and be responsible. However, don’t expect it. It isn’t his kind. His not the sort of man that wants to be held to account. He rather be held in contempt and move-on to the next. Peace.

Opinion: Will Jamaica follow Barbados example?

There are issues here which as you know are unresolved but your presence gives us an opportunity for those issues to be placed in context, to be out front and centre and to be addressed as best we can…But Jamaica is, as you would see, a country that is proud of its history and very proud of what we have achieved. And we’re moving on and we intend to…fulfil our true ambitions and destiny to become an independent and prosperous country” – Prime Minister Andrew Holness while speaking to Prince William and Duchess Kate (23.03.2022).

In December 2021 the Caribbean Island Barbados became a Republic and with that change removed the British Monarch as the Head of State. Since then this sentiment has grown stronger in and around Barbados. Just the British Royalty is visiting Caribbean and destined to show themselves in the former colonies. They are now not only met with graces and praise, but instead also demonstrations and letter of discontent.

The British Monarchy and the old order of having the Head of State in London is dying. These states has been independent for years and can run on their own. They don’t need to notify or be part of the United Kingdom. That’s why the population wants to be truly independent and not hold on to relics of the past. For many the British Monarchy only represents the slavery, colonization and oppression of which the British Empire did do towards their ancestors.

This is why there been a revealing letter of the Advocates Network and also demonstrations in Jamaica. While there are also reactions from The Bahamas National Reparations Committee’s visit to The Bahamas as well. That is all happening in the year after Barbados removed the Monarchy and became an independent republic.

The Prime Minister Holness must know about these growing sentiments and acknowledge the will of the population. They wants the United Kingdom to pay for reparations and damages for what it did during the colonial era. However, those sorts of arrangements are yet to be seen or collected for that matter.

Certainly, the current leadership and Prime Minister of United Kingdom would be hostile to this idea. He would not accept it and stifle it. Neither do I think the United Kingdom or the parties in the Parliament would even care about it. Unless, it would give them some points in the next election or prospects for a majority in house.

That’s why the former Caribbean colonies can remove the British Monarchy and take a stance. They could also leave the Commonwealth and be part of other more relevant bodies of our time. Instead of clinging on to bodies of which the British Royalty is still associated with and have a huge part in. Therefore, as Barbados did the brave thing and the right one as well. Which they deemed fit as a final salute of 400 years of connection with London.

The same can now happen in Kingston and Nassau. If not in other former colonies and protectorates. Certainly, the Jamaican Prime Minister should follow the Barbados example and start to review their constitution and hold a referendum. Which in the end, if the citizens wants it. They can all say goodbye to the relics of the past and start a fresh. That only makes sense…

Jamaica should be independent and truly independent from London. What does Jamaicans get from the United Kingdom these days and what sort of ancient relations is this? This is just continuing a legacy and a past form of government, which isn’t relevant in 2022.

The sun has set on the British Empire a long time ago. It is time to leave the skulls, the remains and the relics of it in history books. Not repeat it and hold on traditions, which was set by the forefathers and the present ones is only reminded about what they did to them.

So, the sun should rise and the population should work for a day. Where they are not beholden or are connected in ways, which are not representing them. They have a head of state far away in Europe. Someone they only see on TV and is lucky to even visit there during their life. This is why it’s time to have the Head of State in Kingston and not in London. That only makes sense.

While time will tell if Prime Minister Holness will be the one to make the changes and set things in motion. Because, he has the option and the opportunity to do so. The PM could become historical and be the first President of the Republic of Jamaica. However, that is all up to him and his close associates. They have to put in the work and finalize it. So it is possible both in legislation, in an electoral sense and mark the end of all the years directly connected to London. If he does all that, than the nation and the Caribbean Island is truly independent. Peace.

Jamaica: Advocates Network – Open Letter to Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge Kate (20.03.2022)

Opinion: Some says War has returned to Europe [and I say it was exported but now came home to roost]

It been a long time since the Yugoslavian war in the 1990s. That was the last big-war and conflict, which the world powers came into play and fought on separate sides. As all the Slavic people of region fought for their statehood and such. Which in the end has ended up on in several of independent nations, but has since then been at peace.

Alas, there haven’t been a moment where the European powers haven’t been involved or participated elsewhere since then. They have either done that by proxy, by exporting military weapons or equipment or themselves participated in North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) operations or invasion. If not, it has directly invaded or made itself impose it’s power onto a nation. Therefore, it has never ceased to use weapons and war. The only difference, it has happen far away and for other means.

The United States has supported wars, been the main aggressor or the initiator in several of conflicts. While United Kingdom has participated directly too. Other European nations has been parts of coalition of a willing. Therefore, we know they are willing wage war and has done so too. This been done over years and the conflict ever ceasing. Even after they are leaving. The parties are still unresolved and the conflicts persist.

So, when I hear again and again that the war returned to Europe. I am saying “yes it did, but it was already here”. What I mean by that… the Europeans has exported the wars. They have supported proxies, which has fought their wars. Europeans has sent brigades, operative armies elsewhere and done warfare. This being as part of United Nations Peacekeeping Missions or directly work for own interests in former colonies.

That’s why the European nations haven’t been all peaceful. They have used arms, weapons and military equipment all across the globe. They have traded and earned profits on wars. This has been done and these wars has only been bylines or parts of bulletins in the tabloids. While bloodshed, massacres and whatnot happens in these conflicts. That is just what’s going on. If it is in Yemen, Somalia, Democratic Republic of Congo or in the Central African Republic. These things can be prolonged and the conflict is a very valuable commodity. A commodity and a business, which is a never ending ride of profits, both in weaponry and resources, which becomes easily accessible when you have the right leader serving any given territory. Therefore, these sorts of moves has happened and the West has gladly joined the ride.

This is why the powers of the West, United States and others has supported the end of certain leaders. In such a fashion, that it get rid of a popular leader who intends to nationalize or reform the mineral extraction industries and instead get a puppet regime there. While using armies and support to keep it up. A war for the interests of the West and not for the nation at hand. Just like it accepted to use illegal means to overthrow Morales in Bolivia. That sort of play fitted the U.S. and Washington D.C. and it could have been much more bloody. However, that’s how it does it and we cannot deny this fact in 2022.

Yes, Russia’s imperialism in Ukraine is wrong. Nevertheless, that doesn’t justify the imperialism of United States or any of it’s NATO allies either. What the USA did in Iraq or Afghanistan should be addressed. Just like whatever war-crimes that all parties have possibly done in Syria. The same can be said about the parties involved Yemen or Ethiopia for that matter. All war-crimes should be punishable and be investigated by the same International Court. Not just go after Russia now. The other nations and the leadership of that time should be held accountable. That is only fair.

So, when saying all this. African Union has worked for a few years now to “silence the guns” which is an ideal programme. No matter how faulty and weak the AU is an organization. How the AU as an entity tends to favour tyrants and dictators, instead of the will of the people. Still, the ideals of that programme is something the European Union and United States should look into themselves. As it is a set of ethics, which could inspire them to think about the consequences of it’s actions elsewhere.

Right now it is justified to enlarge military budgets, expand spending on upgrading the military equipment and vehicles, ensure you have a decent air-force and whatnot. When the war-drums are happening so close to your own shores. It only makes sense, as the borders and the length of distance to Ukraine set the parameter of action of own self-defence. However, Europe has participated and been acting in accordance with war. Just not on their shores or in the near borders of own capitals. It hasn’t gotten close to comfort. Neither has the consequences of it or the ramifications of a war. No, that has been held at a distance…

Now, the conflicts of Europe is coming home. The weapons exports is happening to far-away hinterland or to any of their allies world-wide. Therefore, this war is more consuming to the West. Since, it involves them all and it’s a worry of escalation. Also, if Russia want to further it’s borders and annex even more countries after Ukraine. That is unknown and uncharted territory of Europe in this day and age. They have accepted and participated in conflicts outside of their home-bound regions. But now it’s happening there and it makes things more edgy.

That’s why people are speaking of the wars are coming home. I will say they were always here. That’s why we was busy making advanced weapons, exporting ammunition and selling artillery across the world. While also either being part or being parties in conflicts across the world after the 1990s Yugoslavian war.

There is time to recognize this and acknowledge this. Because, if we don’t, we are hypocrites and people who don’t reflect on our own actions. My own home country has exported weapons and participated in NATO missions across the world, which has inflicted insufferable damage and destruction. This is why we cannot act like we didn’t wage war or had no say in it. Our nations and participation had consequences, which is felt today in Libya and Afghanistan. These sorts of acts shouldn’t be forgotten. It is the act of cruelty to forget that… and we can’t if we are honest.

The wars wasn’t in Berlin, Paris, Madrid, Rome or in Warsaw, but we never know our future. Yesterday it was in Kabul and Baghdad. Now it is hitting Kyiv and we should stand in solidarity with Ukraine. However, at the same time, we need to reflect on the policies and actions, which lead the West and U.S. into similar conflicts anywhere else. Peace.
