Two-Faced Chuka Talks to Himself


A great spot from Iain Martin this afternoon. Two-faced Chuka gets on his high horse in the Indy to tell us we need to “have a conversation with ourselves” about using supermarkets like Tesco that destroy our high streets, that “we haven’t stopped and thought” about the consequences. Before admitting he shops at Tesco himself.

The hypocrisy doesn’t stop there. Chuka campaigns against a new Tesco being built in his own Streatham constituency, though that hasn’t stopped him from welcoming the development of the new Streatham Hub:

“The Streatham Hub will be fantastic for our area. People have been waiting for the Hub for a very long time and I’m incredibly glad at the progress that has finally been made. Some people questioned whether the development of the Hub would ever happen but now it’s clear that this project will be delivered. It will make a huge difference to our area, be a great facility for local people and it should bring a lot of new trade for local businesses as well.”

Provided by – that’s right – his local Tesco. Textbook Harrison…

    The internet seems to at last be bringing to a close the trend of some politicians (& with luck their credulous tribal media supporters) talking anything up, or down, in isolation, to score a ‘no such thing as a bad soundbite’ free of consequence from history.

    The public will learn of it, and from it.

    so chuckusyamoney is campaigning for the folks of his constituency to stop using Tesco’s whilst he himself has no intention of following his own advice.

    the mystic mould with the appearance of the face of Jesus says:

    you are quite wrong, probably because you have a LOW intelligence. Socialist ideas are quite sensible PROVIDING that the populace are made up of intelligent, socially conscious ( to the extent that they believe that the cooperative is more important than the individual ) individuals. A society comprised of such individuals I contend would work and be successful, like bees or wasps are successful but with a special chamber for creative hive building. Of course rugged individualism has had it’s place but for example let’s take NASA. a bunch of guys working towards a common ( fantastic) goal, are they doing it for self importance or for the benefit of the human race ?

    @Just sayin

    At least two unwarranted presuppositions in that one short sentence, namely:

    1. supposed?

    2. constantly searching?

    Why should I sockpuppet myself so? Especially as I have been working and travelling extensively over the last month?

    If you see your own moniker filched, how can that be constantly searching? You are clearly very much more intelligent than I to draw these immensely unintuitive conclusions.

    Sorry about a vaguely negative message for the first post I did, I think the key word to focus on at the moment is ‘morals’, challenge everything, every decision, every law, every court case, every statement, every announcement, and use the word morals and question everything, it’s undefeatable – it’s the strongest weapon, the strongest word in the english language. NO ONE will admit to being immoral. That’s better, more positive.

    GCHQ Challenge for Mr. Schrödinger's cat says:

    You got that it is hex numbers, and have probably had some fun translating them into binary / decimal to look for patterns.

    If converted into ASCII you would have seen a message and some other gobbledegook.

    The message here was not encrypted.

    The rest does have meaning though.

    Check out Intel 8086 op-codes.

    Now: On a Windows machine (might work on Intel Mac, not tried), put those hex numbers into a hex editor and save the file down.

    On windows the ‘debug’ app in command shell can be used, or pull down a hex editor off the web.

    Save as challenge.com and then run it. You should have the message printed.

    The op codes are two bytes representing a machine instruction. There is a program there, which will load the message into a register, display the message and then exit. There is some real garbage at the end which is ignored. There is a little unnecessary jumping as I could not be bothered to write the program properly.

    There was a real GCHQ challenge of this nature some months back with a larger program that implemented an MD4 encryption (I think) to translate a payload and print on the terminal to allow the would be contestant to proceed to the next stage.

    That was sussed fairly quickly, and the subsequent steps which were meant to involve some further crypto tricks in JavaScript with a web page were essentially hacked to pieces by the community, sort of rendering the challenge moot.

    Just an intellectual nicety in this case to reinforce the fact that numbers may mean messages, or actions. If you regard that particular Hex string as one very big number, which has an effect when passed through an 8086 processor things get interesting.

    How many other ‘numbers’ would display that message. If you generated a random number and put it through a processor, what is the probability that it would actually do something without crashing the core or being rejected.

    Enjoy.

    The bigger question not quite posed by Hofstadter in his Eternal Golden Braid is, and an augmentation of Plato’s cave allegory and Descartes brain in a vat is thus.

    If human experience is truly confined to the brain which can be regarded as processor, and its inputs are restricted to the five familiar senses, could the mind also be regarded as a complex type of Turing machine where the combinations of those inputs through time combined with experience form what the person regards as themself, and others may regard as the soul.

    Or is there a spiritual soul above this material level ?

    More importantly, to what extent could the soul of the person be changed by modification of this input stream ?

    Are we only looking at shadows, or is there something else being projected through us as well ?

    Is it possible to discriminate and reliably filter as a defense ?

    Or is such a conjured model designed to unfairly focus on the material aspects of nature, and divorce from the spiritual ?

    The incompleteness theorem of Godel gives a glimpse into the reality which exists between the cracks in our ordered construct.

    It is possible to see into the sun if you look through the gaps in the cave wall.

    As always and as I have come to expect, you post a lot of good sense, which is most welcome.

    My high-level take on this is that over the last two decades, but especially from Clinton-Blair, the ethical standards of just about every walk of public life have been degraded to the point of non-existence.

    This has gone on long enough for many who are currently in work never to have experienced any other way. Worse still, it has been missing in schools for even longer, perhaps back to the 1970s. Anyone under 50 years old will have learned ethics either by having conscientious parents, exceptionally rare teachers or perhaps self study, assuming they did not cover the subject in the much derided PPE.

    Most of the rest will only have a Plato’s cave view at best or no view at worst. BW appears to fall into this category. He is right to criticise some in the legal profession. But that is such a limited part of life, especially if confined to criminal law.

    The degradation I referred to has been apparent in the following areas:
    MPs, Governments, Treasury, BoE, Regulators, Civil Service, Quangos, Police, Security Services, Courts, Legal Profession, The BBC, Press, Data Industry, Banks, Insurers, HMRC, Organised Religions, Transport, Energy, Petrochemicals, Food Manufacturers, Munitions Industry and so on. It is hard to find an area where total collapse in ethical standards has not occurred, HM the Queen would be one.

    The problem is that there is almost no one left who knows what it was like before. If they have any sense, they will have got out of it.

    We lurch from one crisis to the next with no one understanding why. We show every sign of repeating all these mistakes but with a quicker turn-round. It is calamitous.

    Now, having presented what I see as the problem (and I appreciate you may differ on timings and areas of specific focus), what are we to do? People are heartily sick of the situation but I still do not sense that there is huge appetite for the drastic pruning and re-education which must take place even to get to a half-acceptable situation. Until that happens, we merely fiddle with the deckchairs on the Titanic, not even managing a re-arrangement of them.

    @A passing philosopher

    Two references to Plato’s cave within three minutes! Are we communicating by other means?

    Hawkings recently declared, at Google’s Zeitgeist Conference, that philosophy was dead. As he is downright wrong, I have rewarded him by putting forward an entry on Hugh Mellor’s Causes of death of philosophers page here:

    http://people.ds.cam.ac.uk/dhm11/DeathsHL.html

    Hugh trumped my offering of Ran out of Space. The man is too clever by half!

    But, for my money, David Deutsch has got closest with his Fabric of Reality which satisfies me to about 75%. But even here, he has missed the metaphysical where he is weakest on knowledge (he is very strong on most of the other stuff.) That is the remaining work for philosophy and gives a possible clue to an answer for your question about soul but we are some thousands of years off, I fear.

    Canal Street seems to have changed. This is the old New Orleans version:

    Walking down Canal Street,
    Knocked on every door,
    Goddamn son of a bitch!
    Couldn’t find a whore.

    Finally found a whore,
    She was tall and thin,
    Goddamn son of a bitch!
    Couldn’t get it in.

    Finally got it in,
    Worked it all about,
    Goddamn son of a bitch!
    Couldn’t get it out.

    Finally got it out,
    It was red and sore,
    Goddamn son of a bitch!
    Don’t fuck New Orleans whores.

    [pause]

    Two weeks later,
    Couldn’t take a piss,
    Goddamn son of a bitch!
    She gave me syphilis.

    Went to the doctor,
    To ask about the sores,
    He said, ‘You stupid bastard,
    Don’t fuck New Orleans whores.’

    But have not false values been deeply implanted
    Contrary to those always taken for granted?
    Having faced down nuclear annihilation
    The British just let Heath give away the nation
    With hardly a whimper, let alone a shot fired
    And, lo and behold, but it thereafter transpired
    That being British depended on nothing more
    Than flooding in in millions through an open door
    Deliberate sapping and not failed tuition
    With malice aforethought caused moral perdition
    Do you reckon that smashing the LibLabCon trick
    Might start the renaissance with a bloody good kick?

    I seem to have been reading albacore
    Right from the very days of yore
    Setting his arguments better not worse
    Into the very confines of verse
    So we remember back to seventy three
    When the club was called the EEC
    An economic zone which made much sense
    And did away with the border fence
    Tariffs were found to support bad acts
    Competition brought people together with facts
    People thought a good deal could not be won
    But Margaret Thatcher showed it could be done
    Twenty years after the rot set in
    The Maastricht Treaty let the blighters in
    We who the Community Law knew
    Noticed the EEC had become the EU
    In 2009 all that land down to Sounion
    Had then become part of the European Union
    Those pesky Unions which Maggie had quelled
    Became a place where corruption excelled
    Instead of becoming a new Land of the Free
    The last thing observed is Democracy
    Politicos overpaid and over-reimbursed
    Bend every sinew to ensure matters are worse.
    In the light of this, my dear albacore
    We must surely show these people the door.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
