Why I voted as I did planning meeting 17.11.14

Development: 19 Queens Road Bisley

  • Planners Recommendations: approve based on agreements
  • Issues of Contention: entrance on Snowdrop Way is unacceptable, there were several residents speakers, most having to do with the access
  • How I voted: against, refused by 11-2
  • Why: in order to use the Queens Road access, the only thing necessary is a signature from the Secretary of State, which should not be an issue with the current endorsement of Michael Gove. So far, I have never seen an applicant be so disingenuous in making his case. His case entailed destroying the lives of all the people on Snowdrop way in Bisley, everyone saw his case for what it was…

Ok, so enough now is enough…

So, now we really have had enough… We got two very interesting pieces of news about the Islamic State today or ISIS or whatever we want to call them. So we found out that the American journalist and aid worker who had actually converted to become a Muslim has been beheaded. And then we got the news that all of these guys that raid all of these towns and villages take all of the women into slavery. So, we know that this most pure form of the Muslim religion killed those who convert to the religion, enslaves women, and indiscriminately kills children and the elderly. So, we’re left with one of two possibilities: either they don’t actually represent anything about the Muslim faith, or second they really do represent everything about the Muslim faith… So Muslims, what is it??? A couple of clerics have issued warmed over pontifications, but that’s all…

Both here and from the US, we have hundreds of young Muslims stumbling over each other to get out to the Middle East and fight for these thugs. And even more amazing, they miss mummy and want to come home after they’ve been out there a few months. These people are nothing but thug serial killers (who have loving mummies), and need to be dealt with appropriately. Why would we spend even one minute deliberating about what to do in this situation? I don’t care if they are citizens or if they were born here, they are nothing but thug serial killers. They don’t need repatriation or counselling, they need to be treated like all the rest of the thug serial killers in the world. What is that we think these people were doing out there? Providing first-aid? Counselling? Grow up…

Dave, show some balls and tell Theresa to shut these idiots down, enough is enough…

New Glasses…

I have been putting off getting my eyes checked and the prescription upgraded for months, so finally I went and had the full check done 2 weeks ago. Next to going to the dentist, my most hated thing to do… I just can’t bear things on my eyes, I could never wear contacts. And that puffing thing they do do to supposedly test the air pressure in your eyes is the the concoction of some sadistic torturer. It worked, I was willing to tell her anything…

But last night I went to pick them up, and started seeing everything outside 2 meters for the first time in over a year, what a tremendous thing. Almost got in 2 accidents going home, I was just so fascinated with how everything looked…

So it seems like most of our politicians need to go and get their eyes checked and get their prescriptions updated. Most especially Red Ed. He can be seen blagging about in every major paper today about how ready he is to be Prime Minister… Poor Eddie is terribly misunderstood, he really is ready to be Prime Minister, just not of the UK… The Scilly Isles, yes… Jersey, yes… The Isle of Mann, possibly… The UK? Eddie, you need more than a prescription update, you need an entire frontal lobotomy…

Oh yeah, I remember that…

Remember, looking back on some of the weird events in your life with “oh yeah, I remember that”… Seems like that is the only memory we will have in a few weeks of the menace of the Milliband…

Personally, I’d really like him around for the next 6 months, because it deflects any attention from anything we could do that was measurably stupid. As many mistakes as we have made, we can’t hold a candle to this bloke, but he is proving to be such a horrible embarrassment to just being British that Liz is just going to have to order him to the Tower and “off with your head” as the saying goes…

And now it is 6 short months to the election…

There is something about there being right on 6 months until the election, it draws the attention to the scope of the task. Up until the 6 month time it’s just sort of “out there”, but now the rubber has to meet the road…

We have a tremendous advantage this time around, and the selection process has now been pretty much wound up. The advantage is that this time, instead of a bunch of behind the scenes moves, our new president has brought one and only one standard forward: fit for purpose. Fit for purpose? What an incredible breath of fresh air… So now a quarter of the people who think they should be here, aren’t going to be here, and thank God for that… There’s a couple of exceptions, but our leadership has finally had the balls to do the right thing…

Apparently this is the move going on across the country. The standard for our Conservative politicians is “fit for purpose”, and fit for purpose at every level… And our competition? Fit for purpose? Not hardly, and that’s our edge, and that’s what will bring us the success we want. Time to get to work…
