And exactly what do you do?

This really is the question of the day…And just exactly what is it that you do? Have meetings, listen to presentations? Talk to your advisors? Practice your dance moves for the Barwell shuffle?

Honey, whatever you are wasting your time at, it’s not working… Start with something simple, go and install smoke alarms in the other towers in spitting distance from Grenfell. There a virtual flood of documentaries tonight about the other 4,000 tower blocks with the same problems as Grenfell. And, 5 days later there is still almost no one “in charge”…

So, do the right thing, get some adults in who will do something…

We need leadership based on Belief…

It would be pretty hard to imagine how our prime minister could last for the next few days before she is tossed out.  We have a system here which forces, ultimately, the leaders to actually lead. It appears that if 48 of the MPs tell her that she needs to go, then that’s it.  But the problem is, it’s  damn difficult  to find any leaders who can actually lead. It seems that everyone has to have a giant coterie of advisors telling them everything they need to do. That’s okay except now we live in a real-time world.  Now you have to know what to do, you can’t be off asking people and advisors all the time. The fact that the Queen and members of the Royal Family are visiting this disaster every day and she cannot be bothered to even speak to the residents on-site  says it all.

The real crisis in the Conservative party now is: so are there any leaders out there?  But, the central problem here is that to lead you have to have Belief.  Belief in something other than how much you want to be in power. The Conservative party had five pillars of its ideology and belief, which Margaret Thatcher articulated in her now famous interview with Maurice Saatchi.  Where is that now? It seems that 99% of the current Conservative party doesn’t even realise that there are five pillars to its ideology.  You can’t have leaders unless you have leaders who believe in something.  Somehow we’ve gotten to the position where we glorify leaders who don’t actually believe in anything and accept everyone’s belief in everything.  Nice idea, but it doesn’t work in the real world, and certainly not in this one.  It is time for us to have leaders who lead based on belief, that’s it…

Big Blue Scuttle Leads to the Barwell Shuffle…

So, the big Blue Scuttle now leads to the Barwell Shuffle… That train wreck we had a week ago, masquerading as an election, has now morphed in an even bigger disaster, one that several dozen will pay for with their lives… Only a dozen so far, but that is only because they haven’t been able to dig through the pile of bodies still in this smouldering mess.

So, the Maybot gets rid of the 2 stooges behind the train wreck, and then brings in the election loser who was in charge of ditching all the fire regs that would have saved all these people’s lives.  Not one smoke alarm went off for these 600 residents? How could that be??? This is 2017, not Victorian London, just how could this possibly be???  At least the 2 stooges didn’t kill anyone that we know of, just the Conservative Party…

Well, needless to say he was successful at his job, oh sorry to all those people who are now dead or homeless and have lost every worldly possession. Interestingly there are another 2 towers in spitting distance that all have the same problems. The public now needs to get together and demand that the Maybot and all of her staff and ministers move into one of these two towers and see how they like it. Trade homes, and make sure that the Barwell shuffle is held on the top of the 20th floor, and take away the ash trays. Then we might protect these poor people who did not deserve this abuse…

Austerity is over? Who are you kidding???

The dangerously unstable Maybot now says “austerity is over”… What??? Over for when?? Today, tomorrow, 3 years from now??? We are a country inundated and enslaved by debt. Some day, that debt has to be repaid, and just who is going to do this? You simply dismissing it as over certainly doesn’t make it over, only over for today…  Someone needs to tell her that this is not Trump-land, and she can’t print money.

So we have now heard that inflation is seriously on the rise.  For the real people reading this, it just means that things cost more for the same amount of money you have to spend…  So what do Conservobots normally do with this problem? Simple, raise interest rates and slow down the growth.  But, oh, wait, the government owns about 73% of all the country’s debt, and they couldn’t cope with even a 1/4% rise, they just flat don’t have the money…  But the amazing thing is that the British people don’t get it, and actually believe that anything is over…

With this much material, definitely time to get back on track…

Could the local torys be more out of touch???

When you look at the abysmal conduct of the torys here in Surrey Heath, you have to ask yourself, could you be any more out of touch than this??? You have to assume that these are living breathing humans who manage to put one foot in front of the other every day, but how could they so coldly  and stupidly do what they are doing?

Rocketing Council Tax

Up over 15% in 5 years, how could you possibly justify that?  What do we get for this? You’re right, nothing… Are the roads, schools, policing, etc. 15% better? Are we getting 15% more value? Is it costing them 15% more to do the same things? You’re right, it isn’t and it doesn’t… Oh, and they want another 15% from us next year. Madness???

Spending £178,000,000 on street lights and then turning them off to save £21,000

Yes, that’s right, a very few short years ago, they asked us to fund the replacement of all the street lights in Surrey because the new ones would be so much more energy efficient. So, we spend a fortune to save money and then we have to save £21K by turning the lights off. A stroke of genius, and the results of this genius?

  1. The elderly are scared crazy because they can hear things outside their homes and can’t see what is going on, they are almost all afraid to go out at night, especially as many of them are very light sleepers…
  2. the disabled and sight impaired are imprisoned because they just can’t do anything due to the fact that they just can’t see anything
  3. shift workers are unable to do all their work, as they can’t see when they are going to and getting off work and effectively can’t work
  4. crime is up, although we are unable to judge empirically this for a year after it happens, but you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand that you are giving criminals a free hand to do what they like. I am hearing dozens of examples on the campaign trail…
  5. The Council is demonstrating complete contempt for the “little people”

Abysmal state of our roads

No one contests this. But how could that be? A pothole costs £53 to fix and takes 3 minutes to complete. How could it be that these go on and on and on? There is absolutely no excuse for the state of our roads…

Fees at the Rubbish Tips

Here’s another stroke of brilliance on behalf of the Council. So, you tell “white van man” that he can’t go to the tip without paying, and guess how he responds??? Have you been out and about lately? Fly tipping is everywhere, there are now TV shows about it. This wasn’t broken, so the Council “fixed it”…
