    I just cannot understand why people begrudge paying the TV licence fee. The amount of content the BBC puts out, from TV to radio to online, news, documentaries, entertainment, music, the list is endless. And all advert-free. The latter is worth £12 a month on its own. Contrast this with the mind-numbing tripe that ITV puts out. Cowell-shite, Jungle-shite, Keith Lemon shite, etc etc. The BBC shelters us from this garbage.

    The £12 a month is phenomenal value for money. It could not be done unless everyone subscribed. If the way it is financed could be construed as ‘socialist’ then it just goes to show what can be done when the state, instead of private enterprise, works for the common good rather than profit.

    We can learn a lot from the way the BBC is constituted. Long may it continue.

    The call for early referendum, as presented by Alfryie on Sun Politics today, is already being watered down. He was talking in terms of renegotiation.

    A referendum is not required for renegotiation as Lisbon 50 can be invoked at any time in order to force that issue.

    Europe has already ruled out any renegotiation of UK’s terms of membership. Recall that European membership is ‘not a la carte’

    Referendum is only required in order to guide government as to whether the people wish Article 50 to be invoked.

    Hunt is merely a lackey of corporate power, like the rest of government, his function to prepare the ground for privatisation, whether it be the BBC or the NHS. He was effectively caught red handed acting as Murdoch’s creature in government, and everybody knows it. He abused his office as an elected representative on behalf of NewsCorp. The fact that he was promoted to Health Secretary on the back of his record is all the evidence anyone needs that this ruling elite is utterly impervious to ethics. It is rotten to the core – corrupt, deceitful and incompetent.

    Most of government today amounts to a treasonous collusion with corporate power against the interests of its electorate. What else is the policy of rescuing the banks whilst we pay for the bail out? We have government that spies on and lies to its people consistently in the interests of the financial elite that our governing elite serves. We have revelation after revelation to prove it. The sooner this lot falls apart the better. Any social contract that existed is already broken. We need a reckoning, soon.

    Casual Observer 3 says:

    There appears to be a common thread affecting much of UK public life at present. That thread is the 2003 !raq War.

    Dave’s continuing mantra of: ‘We’re all in it together’ is directed at the establishment, not the public. So why is he continuing to utter this, and why is his message failing ?

    The H’utton I’nquiry, rightly and widely regarded by many as a ‘whitewash’ appears to have singularly failed to draw the line. That line being under the divisions which emerged in the establishment over !raq.

    The Inquiry’s credibility was destroyed when no WMD were found in !raq by the UN weapons inspectors. This has been observed by both the public and more importantly the establishment, who realize that their own credibility with the public is fully under question on this issue.

    Hutton’s findings compromised the BBC’s ability to do investigative journalism by ascribing blame for Dr K’elly’s death to the BBC’s reporting of material it sourced from Dr K’elly.

    The subsequent resignations of Dyke, Davies and indeed G!lligan himself further compromised the BBC’s credibility. The subsequent and noticeable drop in reporting standards and breach of trust has resulted in many people questioning their consensus reason for funding the BBC through the license fee.

    (The later Savile and executive pay revelations on top of this are proving fatal.)

    The more serious problems are the fractures remaining in the establishment.

    These will only be healed once the key actors have been held to account. However, this justice they cannot afford to be performed in public. Part of Hutton was to ensure that the brining of such matters into the public eye was not repeated.

    Regulation of the press appears to be in part a move to suppress further open infighting from the public consciousness.

    If the key actors, in particular C’ampbell and S’carlett are not held to account then the damage caused will not be healed. The divisions within the establishment stemming from !raq have been fundamentally responsible for the damage inflicted upon the country from 2004.

    Casual Observer 3 says:

    The referendum is not required, it is just a democratic nicety with precedent dating back to the UK’s entry into the EC in 1974.


    If Article 50 is invoked, which it can be, the first step to EU exit is to go through a process of negotiation on the relationship.

    When Article 50 is invoked, only then is the EU compelled to enter negotiations.

    Cameron has no credibility with the public to justify trust that he would be able to handle the negotiation phase in the country’s interest.

    Cameron has less credibility that he would honor his own ‘pledge’ after 2015. If he is unable to invoke Article 50 and start the process now, the only reason is because he has absolutely no intention of doing so period.

    Casual Observer 3 says:

    It would give demos to the decision and also open up legitimate debate.

    My personal view is that the involvement of the UK in European Federal Union as it is currently progressing is not in the long term interests of the UK, and certainly not in the interests of the people.

    This is primarily because the EU on its current foundation (Treaty of Rome) has no agreed constitution or demos at the executive level.

    The Federal political entity which is being forged by treaty is fundamentally flawed. Being involved in such a system is not in the interests of any member states, except those who are receiving inward investment. When this investment ends their political position will change and they will end up leaving or working against the interests of others.

    UKIP have and will continue to open that debate.

    The rational reason for the UK to exit, if this does cause the EU to collapse, is to reset the approach to Federal Union.

    The EU has proved that it is not possible to evolve a Federal Union from a trade agreement. (This has big implications for N’AFTA)

    The question should be put to the people if they wish to join a Federal Union and adopt a new common European constitution and live by this. Being pushed into a flawed system which is not in their interests by an elite which is privately profiting from the arrangement is not acceptable.

    To get this: Vote UKIP.

Donleavy was perhaps complaining about his agent and publishers, but the phrase applies equally well to the mendacious toads on whom we have inexplicably bestowed authority.

    There are loads of taxes we have to pay for stuff we do not use (e.g. housing, lifelong benefits, prisons). The BBC is, or should be, much better value for money than Sky which costs about £800 p.a. for HD, excluding the multitude of pay-tv options and other digital channels.
    Without Sky, most of the sports which most people would watch would be included in the licence fee (but Premiershit players and their agents would have fewer Ferraris), and we would be spared hours of scrolling through hundreds of channels of utter shite.

    So I’d can democracy and the free market and give the Beeb a monopoly of what they want for four channels and let ITV/Sky bid for what is left.
    But then we’d need to get rid of the political influence on the BBC, and put people in charge who make programmes they want to make (that they would want to see.) They need to be ambitious and assume people will eventually watch good programmes, and not seek to make condescending shite which they think the plebs they despise want to watch. (ITV can do that and good luck to them, and the advertisers will be happy enough).

    In summary, *I* get to choose the programmes and the riff-raff can pay for it.
    I’d start by getting historians to do history progs and Naturists (Oh yes!) to make nature programmes. Comedians can stick to comedy and tax avoidance. The Dimblebys can retire and journalists can start asking about what policies mean, not whether they will be popular among core demographics (ie themselves).

    Also I’d like HS2 replaced with prossies on the NHS.

    Why is the guy wearing a yellow star ?

    Ralph (Adolphe) would not have worn one. These became mandatory in Belgium in May 1942. Ralph came to the UK in May 1940, about the time G’ermany invaded B’elgium. (The B’elgian government fled to B’ordeaux, and then to L’ondon in October 1940)

    The Yellow Star in Belgium would have had only a single ‘J’ in the center. The ‘Jude’ badgers were issued in G’ermany itself.

    The badge should be worn on the left side of the breast as well as on the back.

    Other than this being inaccurate, and has nothing to do with Ralph’s stated hatred of England,

    It should be noted that the yellow star campaign served to increase public sympathy and support for the J’ews under N’azi rule as it made the public aware that a distinct section of society was being oppressed. This was counter to the desired outcome of the labeling, and the post war propaganda claims.

    Where to begin?

    The EEC, as the EU was prior to the Maastricht Treaty, was not perfect but one which I could consider reverting to, in respect of at least its first pillar. Having one home on one of the member state’s borders from which I can walk across the river and be in another member state’s territory in five minutes from my front door, I can see that economic cooperation is beneficial in all sorts of ways which could not be experienced as easily in Britain. Economic activity is the best antidote to war and I have another place in lands which were involved in strife under two decades ago. We do not want to go back there. As you so correctly point out though, to shoehorn a political entity out of an economic agreement was sheer nonsense. Nonsense on stilts. To use the stop-all-wars argument to support it is just plain wrong, a non-sequitur. But they do.

    This becomes clearer when it is seen that votes depend on bribes. On bribes to the public, there is a process of Kanalizacija here, all paid for by the EU, to get people to vote a certain way in a recent referendum. Ironically, it won’t affect me as I am 200 metres away from the nearest point so maybe that is penance for my Euroscepticism! :-) On bribes to the elected/non-elected: The pay and expenses of the Platonic aristocracy of acolytes, commissars and fonctionnaires are already well documented.

    So back to demos. If we leave out Marx’s distortions of what this entails, it is surely true to say that the nature of the polis has changed considerably in our times. One could use a Hegelian (unity and concrete moral identity) or even an Aristotelian (polis is the highest form of community) viewpoint and extract something rather different from it to take into account that, like it or not, our old borders are never going to be as clear-cut as they were before e.g. I still vote in UK elections.

    So this is not just woolly claptrap. I could personally guide you to a place where I can get from Germany into Switzerland without encountering any immigration presence at all. The same applies to Eire/UK. So although I am now a UKIP supporter, I am not calling for fortress Britain and it would be impossible anyway. We have to be realistic and surely we are doing this because we want more freedom, not less?

    We cannot ignore the fact that the USA came together as a federation, via a confederation, from more disparate groups than we have in the UK today. Neither can we dismiss the probability that Europe will follow that trend in its own peculiar and inefficient way.

    Does the polis shape the demos or can it happen in reverse too? For example, look at synoecism in ancient Greece or Rome.

    Agree though that more demos via referenda seems the only way to go.

    The Federal US came together under a constitution. This is the bedrock upon which the rest is forged. The Federal Union emerged after the civil war defeated the Confederate south.

    Anyone can wander across a border where it is not policed unnoticed. There is a very healthy global trade in smuggling which exploits this every day. The customs union simply removes the incentives for using these means, and reduces costs to government and business to do legal cross border trade.

    However, the open borders do make easier certain illegal trade, in particular people trafficking.

    My real point is that the EU is proving that a political union cannot be forged from a customs union. This is not arguing against the customs union. It is also proving that treaty modification cannot create political union, for which a common agreed constitution is required.

    The reason the UK needs to be careful with its borders is because without clear political union and agreement, other member states cannot be trusted to do their part on their side of the border shared with the UK. This will not be apparent between say G’ermany and A’ustria as there will be consensus between the two.

    I raised N’AFTA as one of the longer term goals of this appears to be to form a political union encompassing C’anada, US, Central and Southern A’merica as a single political union. It is starting out as a trade agreement as the custom’s union of the EU did.

    The issue of being able to cross a frontier easily is very much separate to the issue of mutually sharing common political thought and values with the people on the other side of that frontier.

    The way he worked the obviously left-activist dominated audience may have slipped under the radar of many.

    Whilst !slamist and leftist in the UK are committed to fight against the interests of the UK, they are not strictly aligned.

    The capacity for the !slamist to command and lead leftist was clearly demonstrated on that show.

    The irony is that the left have been actively arguing against allowing authoritarian figures to rise to power in society since the end of WWII was concluded as they perceive such figures as being the gateway to fascism.

    They have blinded themselves to the fact such figures are really only capable of manipulating the weaker minded left into such acts, and now find themselves defending the very anathema they wished to see vanquished.

    The Constitution is a bedrock though capable of being modified by Amendments. The theory is sound.

    Practice is sometimes rather different. NSA surveillance programs are an example. The concept of borders has similar practical difficulties arising partly out of the way life develops. The Amendments recognise that life does develop, sometimes in a way that the original drafters could not have foreseen.

    When theory gets too far out of line with practice, difficulties arise. The solution historically has been worked out from the ground rather than from the words, when push comes to shove.

    Is there a case to be made that historical forms of identifying dress (hats and badges) served at one time just a public identity card highlighting those not subject to and not conforming to the ruling status quo? By that I simply mean that in a predominantly Catholic (Christian) economic system which proscribed usury, those whose laws did not proscribe usury between its members and those of the out-group needed to clearly identify themselves as money-lenders who were not breaking the law as they were not subject to the same laws which governed everyone else. Anyone making out that such people were being persecuted or discriminated against would have misunderstood what the rules of the system were at the time, and anyone trying to undermine the rules or operate without giving a clear signal of their group membership and privileged positions, would have been treated as subversives if not criminals would they not?.

    A constitution can be modified, but cannot be made out of anything else. It starts out as and remains a constitution.

    If walk across the border from Michigan into Ohio, the people will meet will be thinking the same way as those in Mich!gan.

    If I cross the border from Michigan into Ontar!o, I am dealing with very different people who think differently.

    In Europe, if I cross from France to G’ermany, I am dealing with people who fundamentally and value in different ways.

    For the NSA surveillance: The WWW was constructed explicitly without ‘borders’ being designed in. All of the security and so forth has been bolted on to the original design, which is why they do not work properly.

    At a high level, this is a design objective of the technology. It is meant to remain operational even in the event of nuclear war: Locked doors would defeat that objective.

    On the other hand governments miscalculated the benefits of double edged sword of free flowing information and the benefits for infiltration. The same applies to physical borders.

    Very interesting what you say. Thank you for the insight.

    I will confine myself to one point of issue:

    In Europe, if I cross from France to G’ermany, I am dealing with people who fundamentally [think?] and value in different ways.

    If I have not interpreted the missing word properly, forgive me but I do not think it will alter my argument.

    If you had said governments think…, I would have agreed.

    But you said people. You will probably know that I emigrated from the UK in 2007. I spend much of my time in a place which attracts millions of visitors from European countries north of the Alps. I meet many of them, invite them to my home, some stay with me, I stay with some of them in their own countries. I know many more people in Europe than I knew before I left in the UK (where I was also not short of contact.)

    When I emigrated, I was concerned that I would find that the culturally based differences to which you seem to refer would be problematic to some degree. Instead I believe I have found there is so much more we have in common than where we differ. Yet so many of these peoples’ parents fought our parents in the WW2.

    The fault line is no longer across nations. It is between those who independently wish to make life good for themselves and their families, on the one hand, and those who expect the state to look after them, on the other.

    However, there are more than one of those people that make up the country and indeed the government of that country.

    It doesn’t matter how friendly one is with someone of another culture. If their government decides to act contrary to your interests that that person and those people become liabilities to your interest.

    This is not to sew seeds of division, it is just a fact of life.

    One can even now envisage F’rance passing a law or acting in a way contrary to G’erman interests and vice versa. Unlikely ?

    Well, Spa!n is doing that right now with the UK over G!braltar.

    This will not be readily found between US states, as those in the US are bonded by a common constitution which trumps all other concerns. Absent this in Europe, there is no such consensus between governments or peoples.

    The fault lines remain, but have been well hidden, not removed. It does not take much to reopen them.

    This is the realpolitic of modern day Europe.

    Ever wonder why the US / NATO maintains its massive and expensive troop deployment in Europe to ensure that the peace is kept ? Y’ugoslav!a was very peaceful as well, until the underlying governments began making pronouncements on behalf of their peoples which broke communities that had been apparently harmonious for generations.

    The two closest audience members were youngish girls, not unattractive, who must have filled 25% of the screen i.e. you noticed them first! Their smiles were anticipatory and the second one was stealing glances at the camera. They were plants. The next guy (Muz?) was not smiling but applauding like an automaton. Plant! Three guys including grey jumper not reacting. A girl who was laughing almost hysterically (Plant or Pot?) and three more guys clapping, the last of which was a M. Plant, Plant, Plant!

    The overwhelming impression would not have been any different had they been told they had all won the Lottery jackpot!

    What’s so left-wing about the guardian or statist beeb? Anyway, the beeb is part of the state media and tends to favour the party that is in power. As for the guardian, it’s hardly a saint when it comes to corporate advertisers. [1] But to call it ‘evil’, (I do not think the ridiculous Daily Mail is ‘evil’, I think it is hysterical and irrational, yes, but not ‘evil’) is to use the kind of emotive logical fallacy that the Daily Mail uses. By the way, you’re stretching the truth when you say the guardian is sponsored by UNITE. *facepalm*. Have you got a source for that?

    ‘We live in a country now in which the labour opposition and much of the leftwing media is gut-wrenchingly sick and repellent ‘

    You’re entitled to your opinion, but it is an emotive one and does’t add to rational political discourse any-more more than the poster you are responding to.

    ‘a stark reflection of the minds and mores of the evil filthy-rich millionaire members of the opposition cabinet represent’

    Lastly, the DM still hasn’t apologised to Zac Goldsmith for its untruthful and hatchet job piece it did on his Dad. Here’s what he said about it:

    “The Daily Mail are always going for my father who died in 1997,” he told the 100-strong audience in Manchester. “So I am used to that aspect of it.”

    In December 2011, the Mail’s Ephraim Hardcastle column accused Goldsmith Snr of having claim that the victims of the Holocaust “lacked the initiative to get out” and the paper was forced to later “clarify he said no such thing”.[2]

    Good response, however to summarize:

    i) Guardian: Next to no one reads it. Would argue it is evil as its involvement with publishing S’nowden has likely sealed the deal for press regulation. (Lots of unpatriotic back dealing also happened)

    As H’eywood pointed out directly to R’usbridger, the Guardian’s actions did compromise GCHQs ability to gather intelligence on child sex rings and p’edophiles. Combined with the pro-p’edo stories at the beginning of 2013, this marks out the Guardian as being evil.

    Also, it should be noted that the Guardian are the leading publication which prefers to print a falsehood first, and then a retraction. This is very shabby style of propaganda for pushing misinformation.

    ii) The DM hatchet job on James Goldsmith was to kill the referendum party. They didn’t need to as public opinion was not on side then. Note also that the G’oldsmith family, originally G’oldschmidt, were competitors to the R’othschilds.

    iii) Anyone who quotes a M’edhi H’asan or Huff Po piece drops credibility points immediately. Other sources must be available, but for Zac’s cause you may not find too many. See point above.

    UKIP or bust says:

    Question is what damage is he still doing?

    He’s out there monging around all sorts of big money gatherings (though not the HoP where he’s supposed to be) and putting himself and his dirty fuckwitted ideas to all who will listen.

    Shurly, in light of his previous dodgy deals: PPI, PPP, aircraft carriers for scots votes . . ., his so called charity should be investigated?

    The LibDems Cons and Labour always vote for uncritically for every EU proposal no matter how damaging to British interests.
    As for the salaries they are no more massive than any other in Brussels,they are deliberately high in order to maintain a grateful, compliant parliament and bureaucracy .

    But the clod-hopping fuzz NEVER ever step in when the crowds are describing the masturbatory habits of the officials in charge! The time is rapidly approaching when all the cops will be able to say in their own defence is: “I was only following orders”.

    Now, where was it that someone tried that line before?

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.”
