Ed’s Guardian Problem (Part II)

guardian-ed-problem

As Guido pointed out yesterday Ed Miliband appears to have lost the support of the Guardian’s political writers, today the paper splashes on the loss of faith within the shadow cabinet. This is despite, or perhaps because, he recently came to the Guardian’s offices to do a Q & A session with the editorial team…

            What is it about Islam that makes all it’s followers so angry. Why does their religion make so many of them bitter, furious & hateful?

            And why do so many Muslim doctors or medical students want to kill rather than to heal.

      The Guardian hasn’t ‘woken up’ they have simply realised that as UKIP are going to take so many votes from traditional labour voters who have themselves woken up and it has dawned on them that although Miliband was a liability there were enough sheep to get him home.

      This is not so certain now and it is becoming less and less certain every single day.

      It’s a potential disaster for the paper that is already haemorrhaging readers and support.

    The reason why the guardian has turned against ed and clegg is that the recent increase in fees and limiting child benefit effects them directly. Eds latest plan to reintroduce the 50p tax rate and tax houses over £2 million means that some more well paid at the guardian like polly and rushbridger might start paying more tax and directly be impacted at last. They also realise finally that ed miliband is really weird and might get worse if elected.

As this will include Deputy Speakers who go on television and state that the Jury pronounced them innocent, no time-wasting on trials – simple allegations are good enough – seems like It will appeal to Grayling as a quick and “Right” step to take to bring down his Criminal legal aid bill.

      Check your discarded packaging, Bill. Mine came with a leaflet — they like mice, shrews, voles, the odd mole or small bird, a few big beetles and maybe some earthworms for dessert. Later they puke up a pellet of the stuff they can’t digest, so put some newspaper under the perch.

      I foresee this backfiring on Miliband big-time when the Small Mammal Front gets wind of it, not to mention the Dunnock League.

    When the North Londoners started to worry about the consequences of an backlash after the Marxist government fails, they decided to undermine him.
    The revolution can wait until another day.
    Look. The family came to Britain to spy for Stalin and the Soviet Union.
    Their connections to the hated regime are too strong to hide from Eastern immigrants.
    Their support for the mass killings in the Ukraine and the Extermination of patriotic Polish intellectuals is already in the public domain.
    Up until the invasion of the USSR by Germany they were working, admittedly like most left wing Marxists, against the allies.
    !
    They have and always did have too much baggage. There is a post on Youtube from an economics lecturer in the US quoting Father Miliband’s attack on the welfare state. They want it distroyed because it is “a capitalist bribe to the proletariat”.
    When the working tax payers see what these (never done a productive days work in 3 generations) maggots are up to it will damage the prospect of Marx’s revolution not help it.

    In human thought it is necessary to be happy to aquire the skill to see with the mind telescope but without the need for mind altering drugs because by focusing on a particular thing you are not qualified to lead others because you may lead them into danger because of the things that are hidden from you in your excitement
    As we have seen lately someone who tries to lead but who is also consuming mind altering drugs will lead his care into oblivion.
    It is important that those that aspire to lead, refrain from all mind altering substances so that their vision is clear and they are worthy to follow.

      As a small shopkeeper lucky enough to have parking spaces outside the premises, I am totally opposed to any attempt to reduce enforcement of parking regulations. The cameras and camera cars seem to be the most effective way to deter and prevent overstaying in our precious shoppers’ parking bays. A blocked parking bay reduces footfall.

      It’s always the same handful of people who park all day outside our shop – if they can get away with it – and only move their cars after they have seen a warden ambling down the street.

      The camera cars are much harder to spot, and are therefore much more effective. And while I may be disgusted, I don’t live in Tunbridge Wells, and certainly won’t be voting Tory if this ban on car parking cameras and ‘spy cars’ goes ahead.

      It is commonly thought that we have theories and that they are tested by the facts. The opposite is true. We have theories and then we strive mightily to fit the facts into them, ignoring those that don’t quite work or reinterpreting them if we have to. The more we have at stake emotionally, the more pressing this task becomes.

      Cognitive dissonance explains a great deal. Take Gordon Brown. Some people believe that all the strife, all the difficulties he is encountering may lead him to give up. Cognitive dissonance suggests that the more trouble he is in, the more difficult things get, the harder he will work to convince himself that it is all worthwhile and that he is indispensible. His troubles make him less likely to resign, not more.

      Now look at the Central Park Jogger case. People suffered because mistakes were made. The police and the prosecution, believing themselves to be good people doing good work, could not reconcile this suffering with their view of themselves. So they insisted, they had to insist, that the teenagers were guilty. The facts challenged their theory of themselves, so the facts had to be reinterpreted. The Evans case is similar. The legal Establishment regarded itself as dispensing justice and the death of an innocent man didn’t fit. It became essential that he not be innocent, whatever the evidence.

      When groups – police, medics, politicians, social workers, the Family Court apparatus – get together, convinced of their own righteousness, the facts (like Timothy Evans) can go hang. They are certain that they are right, certain that they are just and often, you know, they really are. But when they are not, they will never ever admit it, digging themselves in more and more deeply.

      A local authority that has taken your children away can never admit it did so wrongly. And every fact that shows that it did needs to be twisted around until it shows that it didn’t. That is what is happening all the time, behind the closed doors of our Family Courts beyond scrutiny.

      There’s only one way out. That is to allow others, those without a stake in the righteousness of anyone, to shine a light on proceedings. Not to do so is inexcusable. It is an affront to justice and the rule of law.

      Good article.

      Searle’s point on housing reflects what is a more basic truth: that we are all individuals and only collectivise to increase survival odds in the physical environment in which we exist.

      Rights should only be defined for the individual which provide obligations for the individual. Access to material goods as a right should be ruled out immediately as that implicitly places a direct obligation on others.

      Provision of housing (and other basic tools of survival) by society (the collective) to individuals results from two basic drivers: Altruism (supply) and Selfishness (demand).

      Society’s collective altruism is expressed in the supply of basic needs to individuals, mainly weaker members of society, for selfish reasons: To deal with what would otherwise become a greater burden for the more able members of that society. It is a soft form of oppression, more politically acceptable that the concentration camp or the otherwise unignorable alternatives.

      Selfishness also drives the recipients side in accepting these gifts.

      There are some exceptions to that case, such as when housing is supplied to people who have some sort of disability either by birth or as a result of accident which prevents them from independently finding accommodation. Some will repay society by performing altruistic actions in return which is the only way a real balance can be found.

      In terms of defining rights, whilst no one should be barred access from obtaining the means of survival, there is no reason to unfairly burden society by defining supply as a right. Society will find its own balance of altruism driven selfishness alluded to above which it is comfortable with bearing in order to satisfy its own needs.

      A closer look at the UK welfare system reflects this dynamic quite well. In this case the provision of post War services such as the NHS, benefits system, public housing etc. was more to stabilize society in the post war years and preserve the political status quo for an otherwise disinterested ruling elite.

      That core dynamic has not really changed since, but its realization has evolved, as has the attendant propaganda and politic.

      With the ongoing EU integration, people are noticing that this implicit ‘social contract’ has been quietly altered: A harmonization of social provisions is taking place across the Eurozone. But why ?

      An obvious arbitrage opened thanks to the accession of not fully transitioned nations in Central and Eastern Europe, which has been causing the well known problems with poorer European migrants to the UK.

      More subtly, it should be noted that the UK was fully supportive of those accessions: It could have vetoed.

      There is a strong argument here that the UK Government – knowing what the effect would be – supported this in order to shift UK public opinion towards a reduction of social provisions in the UK: A strategy helped in part by the C’ommission itself, which for its trouble was negatively propagandized.

      That has deepened the dysfunction in the EU intergovernmental system and helped politicize further the C’ommission itself – particularly on its position with respect i’mmigration.

      This is quite a way from the original point, but something to consider:

      One of the pillars of single market membership guarantees the free movement of people.

      Granting that as a ‘fundamental right’ implicitly grants a material rights for an individual. This places burden on all member States within the EU as member States have no influence over the number of people that may enter their jurisdictions from abroad and are compelled to provide material benefits under EU law in line with their own societal norms.

      This creates the situation of undetermined obligations for EU member States, something which member States cannot plan for. It also shifts the status quo balance which the native populations are happy with, creating tension that leads to political polarization in response to unexpected social problems becoming visible.

      To Searle’s point, if housing was granted as a basic human right, looking at the problems which free movement alone has caused in the EU, it would have a very negative effect on whichever society was obligated to uphold that right.

        Glad you appreciated that. I suspected you would.

        There is an Absolute Idealism, rather redolent of Bernard Bosanquet, in some of your remarks – which he might have described as speculative philosophy.

        As an Idealist myself, your position on society steers slightly further towards a communitarian position than mine does. My cultural focus is drawn slightly more from the individualist side but probably not as far as many others here, perhaps including our esteemed host.

        Searle, whom I have followed for some three decades with great interest now, has been generally apolitical but with earlier leanings towards the Democrats, which actually makes him more powerful for me to quote from my point of view of being an obvious member from the right of the old political spectrum.

        To give a petty example I hold that, in a civilised society, if someone pays for goods, then they have a better case for possession than from those who steal them. As a fortunate holder of some works of fine art, I regard myself as custodian, rather than owner. Nothing is for ever. But I may need to sell them to pay for health treatment for myself or my family at some point.

        Your digression is most interesting. But it came about partly because of Major’s term and partly because of Blair/Brown.

        You indicate an ulterior motive which I suspect you attribute to the latter. Despite this, I have to say that it does not appear to be Brownian despite the fact that he was Chancellor for all the time he was not Prime Minister.

        Nevertheless, if you agree with this assessment, are you making the point that:

        1. he was unaware of what he was committing himself to? Or
        2. he was aware but did not foresee the consequences? Or
        3. he actually wanted to shift UK public opinion towards a reduction of social provisions?

        All are, of course, hugely problematic but I do not see other options at level 4. and above.

        Finally, agree on the last point.

          I do not think the political side of government led the modification of the social contract. No politician would want to touch that with a bargepole as they know it will guarantee loss of a seat.

          H’arman I recall was a front runner years back – even she was quickly forced to back down and then the issue ‘went away’. It is now happening with the buck being passed somewhat disingenuously to the EU.

          To your point though on the political enablers: Signing of Ma’astricht, and the Treaties up to L’isbon. That encompasses Major through present.

          Would point the finger firmly towards the civil service itself, and those that really influence it: That by the way is the State in this case.

          One subtle point that is overlooked is that the UK civil service has been put in a position of subservience to the real civil service that now exists in B’russels. The UK civil service knows that its power has been reduced, and that it will eventually be downsized if the UK remains in Europe. Once Europe Federalizes there is no need for such a heavy weight and redundant bureaucracy to remain in the UK.

          Federalization provides a means of reducing costs of governance in this way – another powerful case in its favour, but also a source of resistance from established member State services.

          I did have in mind post-War UK society more when writing above, and society through the lens of civic nationalism now.

          The UK Welfare state is seen by many as being part of UK national identity – that should place the context above community.

            I understand better the temporal scale of your viewpoint now. But, just like the BBC, I would suggest its slant to collectivism greatly increased from the 70s.

            On your last point the view, however widespread, is only valid if it is backed up by some reality. Of course it is not. Rather it is a chimera, a vague promise at best which is holding together in a less and less convincing way as time marches by.

    Blair’s legacy article http://www.bdlive.co.za/opinion/columnists/2014/06/20/tony-blairs-legacy
    The following extract is so amazing since it includes statement:

    “It is widely accepted that Tony Blair’s government featured some desperately ill people, from alcoholics to bulimics to paranoiacs to manic depressives and cross-dressers caught gagging on orange balls in public lavatories — the era of sneering, awful, liberals from Jack Straw to Claire Short to Peter Hain.
    But Blair, particularly over Iraq, was the worst of them all: not only is he responsible for the 179 deaths; the £9bn cost; the thousands of maimed young — but New Labour’s legacy will be revealed by fuel poverty and by young British Jihadis who will return from Syria or Iraq to their home country with the express purpose of mass murder.

    Despite political volatility factored into oil pricing, there is only so much the markets can absorb before it all goes piss in a kettle: when it does — which it will — we will deeply regret never having supported a campaign to try Blair for war crimes.

          Purer in the rac!al sense.

          Am trying to be positive about European Stuff (playing to the moniker) but find Euro-TV unwatchable. TV is a waste of time.

          Euro News networks are different – but that is online and not for an entire 30min dose of propaganda with a quirky story at the end followed by a prediction of how the weather will not be tomorrow.

          Something you won’t get from TV – but a good question to look at:

          Is history rhyming in !raq with ISIS – comparing the ISIS insurgency from Syr!a -> !raq with that which took place involving ex-!raq Ba’athists in 2004. Seems to be.

          Followed up with: Could the Avtobaza and/or S’nowden leaks explain why the US is unable to locate ISIS positions reliably in !raq with UAVs ?

          With a final quirky twist: When did the US figure out that they were actually handing intel direct to R’ussia during the previous !raq war ? When did the UK figure that out ?

          O’bama’s strategy perhaps become more clear if you figure that the US needed to switch to a covert / proxy war footing.

            Lot of questions here but to start on the last point, I have little to no faith in “intelligence” (interpret at will) since 1. The fall of Communism and 2. The discovery that Saddam was bluffing about WMD.

            Intelligence has been as leaky as a sieve for as long as laptops have been around. It seems that no organisations are safe from their own geeks, let alone those who come in to maintain stuff.

            So the answer to the penultimate paragraph could be a very long time.

            My knowledge is not good enough even to venture a guess on Avtobaza but I pride myself in being one of the earliest in supporting Snowden, when it was not the fashion.

            History always rhymes when folks will not learn from it. Santayana again. Nobody even cares.

            Probably why they ended up being used to make propaganda flicks for uTube :-)

            If S’nowden got the right sort of intel out – it would certainly increase the value of the Avtobaza in the field.

            I do sometimes wonder if S’nowden is just a Macguffin to cover for the fact that R’ussian defence technology has jumped ahead of the US – specifically in the ELINT field and missile defence fields – and to provide pre-text for reducing US defence expenditure and increase the authoritarian tone of government.

          • The problem is that people confuse alliance with partnership and don’t understand the exact meanings.

            Am not sure exactly where the UK stands with US at present: After the mess that B’ush / B’lair created, when O’bama came in he must have spent the first 6 months in WTF mode. He probably still has at least 1 WTF moment per day due to stuff dating from that era. His recent nuanced expression of Foreign Policy doctrine – ‘Don’t do stupid sh*t’ – certainly speaks more of a Commander in Chief still cleaning up a B’ush / B’lair sized mess, whilst picking up serious flak for that mess domestically.

            O’bama’s first experience of a UK PM was G’ordon B’rown – The Prime Mentalist experience is not conducive to super positive Anglo-American relations: Cameron I do not think is really O’bama’s kind of guy either.

            The UK is equally capable of dumping others in the soup if it chooses to – and does. L’abour did significantly weaken the UK’s ability to do that – which maybe explains some antipathy towards the US.

            Throw in an angry Bear, a dodgy Panda, the EU and a bunch of loonies in the ME hell bent on surfing mushroom clouds to paradise – UK is kind of down the list of priorities for your friendly neighbourhood super power – especially when the UK can only offer Common Purpose mind-f*cks and PR spin as constructive contributions to major geopolitical problems around the world.

          • Britain has long had a relationship based on historical similarities with USA which have at times become fixated on historical differences. Eisenhower with the Suez crisis and the invasion of Granada are amongst the low points on this line but the second did not create the bitterness of the first. However, the similarities had always more than triumphed.

            This has been borne out by a realisation that when push comes to shove, we have acted with deeds where the others, and I cite France in particular, have only reacted with Mr Finewords Butterno Parsnips (h/t Bernard Levin). Clinton was much faster than Obama here and realised it within a few months. Obama has never got there.

            Obama has taken things into an entirely new arena. He has used the resentment of Empire by using coloured bitterness in a not dissimilar way to Diane Abbott. Way out of historical aptness but it plays to the gallery. A president is supposed to be above that and is also supposed to know the intervening history. One imagines he was also resentful of Thatcher but, even with his verbal superfluidity, he could not quite patch something together so has ignored her period almost completely except to express crass views about the Falklands – as if there was a parallel with Roots.

            Agree it did not help our case that the Maximum Imbecile was PM when he took the presidency but Obama had already signalled his course well in advance of that. But in strategic thinking terms, Obama is merely a more finessed Brown, i.e. nowhere. Outside of the creation of a tax monster, what has he really accomplished? Sweet FA!

            Also agree completely with the Common Purpose infiltration but, you will be the first to admit, it is not confined to the UK. That it has taken root in the way it has betrays the intellectual poverty of the last four PMs and the mantra that Perception is the New Reality.

            As to fixing UK-USA relations, whilst immensely desirable, more of the superficial BollocksSpeak is simply not going to endure.

          • They have been bringing in the Cultural Marxism stuff that Europe has been plagued with over there. IMHO it is to make pan-America more compatible politically with pan-Europa.

            This is not directly down to O’bama. For instance – he was not responsible for the changes in the University System’s over there which started promoting the Diversity agenda: That came in during the 90s and under B’ush. However, that, and some of the other changes in the education system have had the effect you note – and indeed contributed to O’bama’s successful election.

            The broad effect is the introduction of collectivist multi-culturalism to the US which is changing their society from melting pot into mosaic. That is making it a bit more like C’anada – which is significant. C’anada still is one of the most rac!st nations on that continent. It is also a Federal Monarchy.

            As for the race stuff in US: The latest Redskins issue exposes what is going on there.

            1st Amendment is under attack. A feature is what constitutes unprotected speech. As certain words become considered ‘fighting’ words – or ones which can ‘incite’ if used – they can become unprotected. One cannot deny that through media hype and changes in how multiculturalism is taught the frame of reference is shifting.

            This Supreme Court decision of 1992 I think is in the cross hairs for the Useful Idiots of Cultural Marxism:

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R.A.V._v._City_of_St._Paul

            Most folk see ‘Social Contract’ in the Rousseauian sense, but the reality in the UK is that the contract has been set and is controlled by the ‘Monarch’. Both senses were used. That explains why tension is arising as people mistakenly consider what is set by their will is changed by the ‘Monarch’.

            As for the rest: An alliance is simply a relationship based on similar interests / nature / qualities. As those change so does the nature of the alliance.

            UK Government misleading UK people by propagandising that arrangement as something else is not a problem for the US. Elements which seek to exploit the mis-perceptions in order to weaken the alliance are not acting in the interests of either party.

            Shouldn’t be any mis-conception. But UK and US still do cooperate at a high levels quite well, albeit less publicly now.

            The core of that alliance is intelligence sharing and military: The intel side is the special part and that is under strain as it has been directly under attack by others lately.
