Make sure you vote tomorrow in the UK Elections

The UK Election 2017

By Dark Politricks

It’s the UK’s snap general election tomorrow.

No-one really expected our great leader and Donny Trump fan Theresa May, called it after pulling out of the EU by implementing article 21 (The Lisbon Treaty).

Many are predicting a landslide victory for the Tories who have not jailed a single bankster from the 2008 crisis and trebled the national debt. The deficit may have shrunk a little but that is of no importance when the debt we owe in total has trebled clearly showing that austerity measures don’t work.

Putting the “payback” on the poor instead of the rich has been decried by many as unethical and even evil.

Why should a disabled granny lose a chunk of her benefits to pay for gambling by coke snorting banksters who took grannies pension and played roulette with it.

I don’t know and neither do the millions of poor and kids hoping to go to go to university only to realise they cannot afford it without incurring thousands in debts.

Following the USA around the world in the Axis of War has cost us trillions of pounds over the last decade, and even more since 9.11.

Wars in Libya, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan and undeclared wars or incursions following the USA who is using drones or planes in 7 countries at the moment that we know of. This just wasting money we desperately need at home and stirring up the UK Muslim community who have attacked us successfully 3 times in the last 3 months.

More war!

More drone strikes!

More death is what you vote for when you vote for the Tories, and when you are next on the Tube nervously looking at a man with a back pack on then don’t cry when more of your civil rights and liberties are removed from you.

Currently I am probably being watched by a very bored GCHQ member of staff through my web cam at the moment and if you vote Tory you vote for more terror and more spying on the citizens of this country through your TV, Computer, Phone, Tablet and now even cars they could hack into and control.

Wasn’t it George W Bush that said after 9.11 that they attacked us because “they hate us for our freedoms”. It seems the terrorists are winning if we just hand our freedoms over. I guess that’s what false flag attacks and drumming up fear of whole communities of people is about.

Then we have opposing the hot favourites to carry on ruining the country, a real “Feel the Bern” revolution for Jeremy Corbyn. Hundreds of thousands of new Labour supporters have joined since Corbyn took over. Even more joined when their failed coup went ahead. It seems every time the Blairites try to get rid of Corbyn he gains another 100,000 Labour members at least.

At least if Tony Blair does succeed in creating his own get out of jail party in the aftermath of a Labour slaughtering at the polls he can be shouted down and abused in the house  as the war criminal he should be treated as.

Can we really blame Blair for his 4 wars, bringing the party into the centre from the left leaving progressives with no alternative, considering the Lib Dems were wiped out last time.

The Lib Dems lied about abolishing University fees in their last manifesto and got a lot of young people’s votes only to renege on the promise for a chance to spend 5 years in the back of ministerial cars.

Nick Clegg got his chance to sit at the top table and then to hell with the Lib Dems. He got 5 years of the high life, that’s what type of politicians we are voting in.

The Lib Dems may have some good ideas but they have lost the people’s’ trust and it’s not as is if we can exactly trust any other party anyway. At least with Jeremy Corbyn you get the feeling he will try and implement his policies. Whether his party back him or not is another matter. He and Bernie Sanders would get on well over a pint I think.

So the young have looked at the fixes in US politics and how the candidates were chosen before hand in the Democratic party. Anything to get Hillary as their candidate and Bernie blanked out.

Just think of all those wasted hours standing in line to vote for Bernie when the fix was already in.

BREXIT is going ahead due to a referendum, true peoples democracy.

You may not like it but I doubt voting for a progressive alliance between Labour and the SNP will reverse the process. Once article 21 is implemented I doubt the rest of Europe will allow us to change our minds, we may try, and Germany may want us to stay,  but France is French and to an Englishman that says it all.

So compared to Bernie Sanders, Jeremy Corbyn is far more to the left showing you just how centrist US politics really is. They fix their primaries so Bernie cannot run despite having the votes and the support and if he dare mentions the word socialist they think he is Mao Zedong.

At least Corbyn can mention socialism and not get bananas and other vegetables thrown at him from FOX News, and as they say any news is good news.

Bernie was hardly mentioned in the US news media, a 6 company monopoly that all spew COINTELPRO propaganda whether supposedly left-wing like MSBC or right-wing like FOX. Here we have multiple political programmes where people ask a range of politicians and public people what they think about political decisions and issues of the day.

Bernie got about 10 minutes coverage in all the primary campaigning whilst Clinton and Trump owned the airwaves for free. They shouldn’t have really spent all those billions on election adverts when they had the news channels to let them spew their hatred instead.

That’s one good thing about UK elections we don’t have to suck off lobbyists to get the money to campaign only to pay them back once in power.

In the US they usually have to have multi millions of dollars to even consider running for Congress or the President. Then they leave the House to go and work for a lobbyist firm or a company they had a hand in helping by voting for  in government.

So whether you like Corbyn’s charity shop suits or not, or you are hoping to see Labour wiped out so that you can rush to join Tony Blair’s threat of a new neo-con, neo-liberal, war mongering, Banksters fun time party, you have to vote tomorrow and vote with your conscience.

If you don’t want more war, to see Blair in cuffs, more money spent on schools and hospitals and less US ass licking then Labour are the only real choice for progressives. If you want the opposite, more war, bigger bombs dropped on schools and hospitals and blowback that turns UK born kids into murdering Jihadists then vote Tory.

If you want your vote to count for nothing then there is always the Green party and UKIP despite whether their ideas are good or not but as they say you should vote with your conscience whether it makes a difference or not.

Just make sure you vote.

Bilderberg Sleuths Identify UK As Possible 2010 Location

April 8, 2010

Annual meeting of global elite could coincide with general election

Bilderberg Sleuths Identify UK As Possible 2010 Location 080410top

With the 2010 Bilderberg Group conference fast approaching, consensus seems to indicate that the United Kingdom or Ireland will be the likeliest location for the annual gathering of the global elite.

With the Trilateral Commission set to meet in Dublin Ireland from May 7-9, some think that the occasional pattern of both the Bilderbergs and the Trilaterals holding their conference in the same geographic location will be repeated.

Sleuths on the forum have also noted that the International Economic Forum of the Americas, which this year falls on June 7-10 usually takes place at least three weeks after the BIlderberg conference if Bilderberg takes place in western Europe, meaning this year’s Bilderberg confab would likely be around the middle of May.

“If the pattern above holds, Bilderberg 2010 will be somewhere in Western Europe or the British Isles the weekend of May 14. If it occurs in North America, which seems less likely, it would be the weekend of June 4,” writes one researcher.

Others have suggested early June as a likely meeting date because the Trilaterals are convening later than usual this year – they normally hold their conference in April.

The fact that Bilderberg has taken place in North America twice out of the last four years suggests Europe will be chosen as this year’s destination. Bilderberg was last hosted in the UK in 1998 when the meeting was held in Scotland. Before that, the UK played host in 1986 and 1977. The 12 year gap since the last meeting in the UK suggests it’s time for the British Isles to play host once again, since there has never been a period of more than 12 years between conferences in the UK since the Bilderberg Group was formed in 1954.

The United Kingdom has also come up as a possible location because it would coincide with the UK general election, which is due to take place on May 6. “I would assume the meeting will take place prior to that date and that Cameron, who is related to Scottish Aristocracy, would be invited and subsequently selected to power,” writes another poster.

Bilderberg has a history of acting in a Kingmaker capacity. President Obama was rumored to have attended the 2008 conference before his election victory later that year. There are numerous instances where Prime Ministers and Presidents have gone on to become leaders shortly after attending Bilderberg meetings, the most notable examples being Bill Clinton and Tony Blair.

Barack Obama’s running mate Joe Biden was selected by Bilderberg luminary James A. Johnson, and John Kerry’s 2004 running mate John Edwards was also anointed by the group after he gave a glowing speech at the conference in 2004. Bilderberg attendees even broke house rules to applaud Edwards at the end of a speech he gave to the elitists about American politics. The choice of Edwards was shocking to media pundits who had fully expected Dick Gephardt to secure the position. The New York Post even reported that Gephardt had been chosen and “Kerry-Gephardt” stickers were being placed on campaign vehicles before being removed when Edwards was announced as Kerry’s number two.

A 2008 Portuguese newspaper report highlighted the fact that Pedro Santana Lopes and Jose Socrates attended the 2004 meeting in Stresa, Italy before both going on to become Prime Minster of Portugal.

The main factor that goes against the conference being held in the UK is Bilderberg’s preference for privacy as increasing awareness of their agenda attracts more protesters and press attention. Though the UK press cannot be relied upon to afford the event the attention it deserves, there will no doubt be hundreds of UK citizens who will descend on wherever the meeting is taking place to demonstrate.

Recent Bilderberg meetings in Canada, Turkey and Greece have attracted significant mainstream media interest as well as numerous protests.

Indeed, it’s ironic that Bilderberg have come to rely on the American media as the most pliable in that they routinely afford almost no coverage whatsoever to an event which attracts 200 or more of the most influential people on the planet. The 2008 conference in Chantilly Virginia was accompanied by an almost universal media blackout on behalf of the U.S. press.

The UK General Election – What is the point

April 4, 2010

By Dark Politricks

The UK general election is fast approaching and yet again I am really struggling to see the point of it all. Since the early 90’s when Labour morphed into a paler shade of blue there has been little difference between the main two parties but at least it was still basically a choice between the working mans party who liked to tax and spend and the banking toffs who slashed public services and put the north of England on the dole. However nowadays there is literally no  ideological difference between the main 3 parties at all as they have all camped out on the centre ground with the only squabble being over a pence or two in income tax and who will reduce the deficit a little bit faster.

I grew up during the 80’s and 90’s so I came to age during the long period of Tory rule which I remember for the recession, the poll tax riots, the crack down on ravers and travellers with the “Anti Rave” laws and of course all the sleaze that surrounded those public school boy Tories.

Not a week went by without another Tory MP being outed in the News of the World as a sexual deviant of some kind or another. We had MP’s romping with prostitutes and mistresses as well as self asphyxiation accidents and dressing up in football shirts. Nowadays its money that causes the scandals and we have duck houses, bell towers and expense claims for porn videos. It was all back to basics in the media and then back to the bedroom in private and the hypocrisy of it all stunk to high heaven.

Therefore when Labour looked like having a chance of knocking out this band of posh authoritarians who had introduced CCTV cameras as well as increasing police powers ten fold it was no choice. I was one of the multitude that voted in New Labour thinking we would actually expect some change, how little did we know. We had been seduced by Tony Blair’s wide eyed smile, promising the earth, and we foolishly actually believed he might overturn all those laws that the Tories had brought in that seemed so unfair and unjust. We were poorly mistaken.

Under Labour the move towards a high tech surveillance state has increased unbelievably fast. Every day I read another story in the paper about how we are being monitored in some new intrusive way whether it be online, by new unmanned drones or through microchips in wheely bins and the millions of CCTV cameras that follow our every move.

If George Orwell had realised when he wrote 1984 that the book would have been used by a future Labour government as a guide book on running the country then he may have thought twice about writing it as it seems that the futuristic land painted within those pages is nothing but a distant memory of a time which doesn’t seem all too bad when compared with our present reality.

Not only has Labour introduced us to this horrible world of online monitoring and privacy invading and degrading acts such as the new body scanners, they have used the threat of Islamic Terrorism to batter us into submission. We managed to endure a quarter of a century and more of IRA bombs and plots to kill and maim without resorting to chucking away hard won liberties but as soon as some mad mullahs with explosive hair dye products unleash one successful attack on us we decide to throw all sense of proportion away and revert back to a them or us attitude, and we have all seen how that hasn’t helped in America.

Not only has Labour introduced terror law after terror law, removed the right to silence, extended the time you can be locked up without charge, increased the number of authorities that can spy and monitor us without the need for a warrant, introduced a flawed identity card scheme and added dictatorial like powers to remove Internet access, they have done all this without much objection from the one party I used to respect on matters like this the Liberal Democrats.

Liberals are supposed to stand for personal freedoms a free market and a safety net that ensures the rich and powerful don’t maintain their privilege at the expense of those that actually do the work. Whilst I like a lot of what they should stand for I don’t seem to be hearing a lot of it in the media and I am very disappointed that they haven’t been fighting harder to prevent the march towards a Labour designed high tech police state.

They too have joined the ruck in the center ground and have become indistinguishable from the other two parties on points that really matter. Yes they were right about Iraq and have maintained some kudos for being so however their desire to throw away our ancient democracy and hard won freedoms to jump into the European super state is the main reason I believe they have not made more of an inroads into the public consciousness.

They do promise that if elected they would allow the British public to have a real referendum on the future of the UK in Europe but can anyone say that they would trust them to keep their word if the public said no? We have already seen Labour backtrack on a referendum on the Lisbon treaty and then shortly after the Tories, so who is to say the Lib Dems wouldn’t overrule any No vote. Actually they wouldn’t ignore our wishes they would just pull the same trick the Irish did and just keep asking us the question until we gave the “correct” answer.

As most polls that have been taken over the years clearly show time after time the British public want to be in Europe but not ruled by it. We want free trade and free movement of capital and people but we don’t want the thousands of diktats sent down from Brussels that enforce every kind of regulation from the quality of fruit to the brightness of our light-bulbs and the names we call our food.

The Euro seems to be floundering at the moment and we seem to have done well to keep out of it. Not being able to control our own interest rates to combat inflation and recession would be a heavy price to pay for sharing our shrapnel with France and Germany and we will see what happens with the high spending southern states of Spain, Portugal and Greece as they drag the Germans down with them.

So should I be looking towards UKIP as an alternative voice in this political void? The only face they really have is the outspoken Nigel Farage and whilst I love watching him debate the Eurocrats on TV and he has a great sense of humour and good head on him I cannot imagine him as Prime Minister.

So what should I do when it comes to polling day? Abstain from the whole process as a “none of the above” protest vote, vote for the natural law party or hold my nose and vote for one of the main three. I really wish there was a viable alternative party that truly spoke for the people rather than the vested interests of the city and those that pull their strings. A party that would actually do what they promised when they got elected rather than ignore their manifestos and the good will gained by opposing the government from the opposite bench. Its very easy to disagree and say no when you know you don’t have to make the decision but they all forget that we remember every single time they break such promises.

I know that I am dreaming when I say such things as power corrupts and we have all seen how MP’s are perfectly happy to line their pockets when they can. We need short term limits to get round the power of lobbyists and prevent people from getting too comfy in their jobs. In fact we should revert back to a more Greek form of democracy where the people who rule are picked each year from a pool of eligible citizens. We have enough young fit and healthy retirees in this country who would be up for the job and I reckon might do a whole lot better than our existing incumbents. Why waste all their valuable life experience and let a privileged political class rule the roost for as long as they wish.

A big idea like this would be just the think to invigorate the stupefied masses who like me have become bored with the status quo and can see no way our whilst we keep our existing political system. Tinkering around the edges with alternative votes or reform of the Lords is not enough to convince the public that real change is a foot. I suspect that if we do have a hung parliament like the City is dreading it will just be another indicator that shows that neither side of the political debate has won the argument and the people just don’t care who is in power as deep down we all know it makes little difference to our daily lives.
