"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Stirring The Pot & Discernment

It's been a peculiar day today, and it isn't over yet.  It's been strangely still and quiet since yesterday morning and will remain so until Monday.  There'll be no music or chat because it's only me and Suki and the pc crashes if I ask it to do two things at once so I can either blog and read online or do feck-all -  'chillax' as it's apparently now known in high circles.  The highlight of my evening so far was when someone buzzed the entryphone but, alas, it was for the couple next door.

Let's stir the pot: We're told layer upon layer of lie upon lie.

Here's the latest pot-stirrer:

Christine Lagarde, another technocrat who rose from nowhere: The eurozone crisis is largely over.
"Speaking in Davos Saturday, she warned, however, that the year 2013 is going to be difficult. She also praised prompt rescue action taken by the European Central Bank.
The IMF is releasing bailout funds to Greece, Ireland and Portugal. Its next Eurozone client will probably be Cyprus."
 Have a look at this:  United Kingdom & the IMF
 
Lagarde says 2013 will be 'difficult'.  That would take some chutzpah if her position was assailable but it isn't - she's safe and secure. Our own George Osborne supported her application for this top job and she's been about as effectual as Cathy Ashton (Mrs Peter Kellner) has in hers.  Networking behind the scenes is the epitome of what Davos is all about. He scratches her back, she scratches his - oh, hang on a minute - here comes a third party who also wants to scratch a sacroiliac.

 Lagarde didn't mean that 2013 would be difficult for her but for us.  Cameron  & Co  didn't invent the 'them & us' scenario and neither did the Labour Party.  We need to look above and beyond but, according to the British Press, we're all too fat, living on benefits, sitting on a sofa bought from tv adverts and too idle and feckless to cook for ourselves so prefer takeaways bought with 'benefits'.  Believe it if you want to, but I don't.

Davos is spun as being informal. Informal to me means 'gatecrashers welcome' but that's not the case; we, the people, are definitely not on the invitation list. It's just governments, lobby group whizz-kids and those with big heads and inflated ideas (Blair, Mandelson, Deripaska)  getting together to exchange business cards with the likes of George Soros so they can arrange meetings and screw over millions of people who didn't vote for them.

While I'm here, let's look at a new lobby group that's set up shop in Brussels. Not just any old place in Brussels, oh no; it's situated in the Residence Palace, Rue de la Loi. Since when did these tw@ts get to set up offices in a 'Palace'. They have all the trappings of a dictatorship. Unelected, uncalled for, government-funded, flag, anthem.  The Brussels antenna is some sort of new lobby group set up by and for the EU in order to amplify its message.  I hope we give it the attention it deserves.

We're being overdosed with spin and jargon but there will always be more to come.  The European Union, the Commission & the Parliament, each with their own 'President' and under the thumb of the Council of Europe, (Second year UK helps fund 'Global Project on Cybercrime') won't give up or roll over, unlike some of us.

Take my advice and invest in some earplugs for the next few years if you value your sanity and your freedom.  At some stage, you and I are going to have to fight back against those who seek to control us with their laws, restrictions and diktats.

Two women arrested in separate incidents.  They objected to Smart Meters being installed in their homes.  I don't blame them. It isn't as nice as govt would like you to believe.

One other thing you can do, if you have time, is check out the blogroll on the right or read through tags & labels of past posts here. You really do owe it to yourself to find out and make your own informed decisions rather than relying on the msm and government pronouncements.

Government fucks them, and us, time and time again:
"They say there's a troopship just leaving Bombay, bound for old Blighty shore
Heavily laden with time expired men, bound for the land they adore.
There's many an airman just finishing his time, there's many a twerp signing on.
You'll get no promotion this side of the ocean, so cheer up my lads, Bless 'em All.

Bless em All, Bless em All, the long and the short and the tall
Bless all the sergeants and W. O. ones,
Bless all the corporals and their blinkin sons,
'Cos we're saying goodbye to them all, as back to their billets they crawl
You'll get no promotion this side of the ocean, so cheer up my lads, Bless 'em All

They say if you work hard you'll get better pay
We've heard all that before
Clean up your buttons and polish your boots
Scrub out the barrack room floor
There's many a rookie has taken it in, hook line and sinker an 'all
You'll get no promotion this side of the ocean
So cheer up my lads bless 'em all.

Bless 'em All, Bless 'em All, the long and the short and the tall,
Bless all the sergeants and W. O. ones,
Bless all the corprals and their blinkin sons,
'Cos we're saying goodbye to them all, as back to their billets they crawl
You'll get no promotion this side of the ocean, so cheer up my lads, Bless'em All

Now they say that the Sergeant's a very nice chap, oh what a tale to tell.
Ask him for leave on a Saturday night and he'll pay your fare home as well.
There's many an airman has blighted his life through writing rude words on the wall
You'll get no promotion this side of the ocean
So cheer up my lads bless 'em all

Bless 'em All, Bless 'em All, the long and the short and the tall,
Bless all the sergeants and W. O. ones,
Bless all the corporals and their blinkin' sons,
'Cos we're saying goodbye to them all, as back to their billets they crawl
You'll get no promotion this side of the ocean, so cheer up my lads, Bless 'em All."
That just about sums it up.

F*ck 'em all.

  1. Quick, name a competent, intelligent liberal.

    In the US, I'm starting to think that the dumber, uglier, and more evil they are the more votes they get.

    1. You've got me there, Kid. They all lie for power and then implement someone else's agenda. They impose governance rather than govern by consent of the people.

    1. I didn't say I was bored, Mr W. Who could possibly be bored when reading up on the latest pronouncements of Mme Lagarde? ;)
