Cheddar Man (Gromit)

I have just watched the childish Channel 4 compilation about the DNA-based reconstruction of a 10,000 year old skeleton found in Cheddar Gorge. From the outset, the voice-over was full of portent. We were in for some fundamental shocks, apparently.

Summary; Cheddar Man came from the Middle East, was related to several other skeletons found in Spain, Luxembourg and Hungary and had darker skin than we would have thought. Obviously, whilst traced to the Middle East, originally he will have come from Africa. And the 'relations' being across a wide range means we are more European than British.

Review; Yep, I think that we have believed a migration from the Middle East (probably from Northern India/Persia) for decades. So, not new, not a shock. And a darker skin than we currently have? Why is that a surprise? I'm guessing knowing origins, suggests it quite strongly and it is as irrelevant regarding him as anyone else today.

It seems that the scientists (or just the script writer?) would be shocked to see a dark-skinned person disembarking from an Air Nigeria flight from Lagos. Which accords with how poor they seemed as a crew, being unable to string proper sentences together. They may know their subject, but they obviously didn't pay much attention during their Eng Lang/Lit classes.

For me, hearing there were close DNA relationships with other people right across Europe was interesting because of the spread and why did they spread? But the programme could not get past the politics it wished to project; we are not 'British' (which is a cultural construct, not racial) but 'European' (but held back from pointing out how ridiculous this made Brexit).

Maybe, though, just maybe Cheddar Man didn't know he was 'European' either, but surely paid a fair rate of tax. Our shock at his skin colour would be because we are racist, yes?

And the added, unsupported fact that we all came out of Africa is now being questioned, but not by this programme. They completely ignored the discovery of an 'oldest ever' skeleton in Europe. Where Lucy was found is an ideal, undeveloped part of the world. The fact that the land of much of the rest of the world is unexamined doesn't mean we came form Africa.

Finding old remains there is interesting and the theory may be correct, but as ever, we don't know. Unless you are a cultural Marxist and are desperate, at every turn to state your distaste for Western civilisation.

I'm amazed that, as the programme assumed we couldn't but project modern views onto the past, they didn't also explain that there were no cars or aeroplanes when he was alive.

I particularly enjoyed the guy saying that people migrated to what is now Britain seeking 'living space' (lebensraum), which seemed odd as the entire population was around 12,000. Just seemed an strange thing to say, yet alone the words used!
Could have been an interesting programme, but Channel 4 did it, so it was politically oriented tosh.

Speeding

I see the current fascist leader of the police traffic section thinks that the rate of illegal fining of motorists is not high enough and wants fines imposed as soon as possible, from 1mph of a 'limit'. I wonder if he wears his uniform at home and admires himself in the mirror, wondering how a gun would look with it.

Or if he dreams of strutting out to order his neighbours to do his bidding? He must do really, it fits his undoubted profile. The police like to say 'it's 30 for a reason' and I would ask this Grade A imbecile what exactly that reason is. Oh, he will launch into platitudes about knocking people down at 30 or 40 and maybe reel off facts and figures he had made up specially, but in the end he won't know.

He can't, because a speed was picked arbitrarily, for no other reason than it sounded about right. Now I dislike dangerous speeding as much as the next person, but drifting over a limit is neither here nor there. I will slow down and watch carefully if I see a group of kids playing near the roadside (the police feel such behaviour is beyond drivers), though I could of course maintain 30mph.

I started by saying he wants more revenue and that can be the sole motivator (well, that and the sense of control engendered by cowing the entire population with draconian regulations), as safety is entirely absent. It is well known, even within the state bureaucracy that Safety Cameras actually cause accidents, that such fine control of driving manners, leads to too much observing of speed and less of the road ahead.

In fact, pretty much everything we are told about speed is a pack of lies. Speed Awareness courses are just Marxist re-education programmes to cow a population into a mindset of state control. Pathetic.

The variable speed, smart motorways (that seem designed to kill people) create congestion when they reduce a limit and the congestion clears when the limit is removed. The limit alteration is to cause problems and bring you to realise, who is in control. The freedom enjoyed by the motorist must be curtailed!

Unashamed Children

The silly little girl who led her entourage of similarly immature twerps in protesting about Winston Churchill in a café, leaves you gasping really. Where to start? When I was their age I kinda knew that I was inexperienced at pretty much everything and kept quiet. Now however, students as they like to call themselves have no sense of shame about anything, a huge amount of self-importance and stunted ill-informed political views.

The Left of course, never progress beyond playground politics by definition. Marxist ideology is all immature. Then there is the target, a café. Really? The overthrow of capitalist economic theory starts here comrades. That alone marks her out as a complete fool.

Or the supposed target Churchill, who whilst pursuing his hobby of leading the nation against Nazi aggression, was more committed to oppressing blacks. Are we fortunate that she, uniquely has discovered this?

Of course, it is more likely, as a Marxist that she is more concerned to make the enemy of totalitarianism her enemy. Because the Left is where evil dwells (her, Corbyn, Hitler, Stalin) which means the Right is where people who don't wish to oppress others sit.

The big problem creeping up on us is of course, the likes of Momentum. This organisation and countless others in a similar vein are becoming bolder, more public. They are the proto Brownshirts and they need to be confronted and dealt with before they seize any more power. The slide into totalitarianism can be unnoticed too often as it hides under some uniting principle.

For the Nazis it was a national mood for a greater Germany, here it is a nation falling for the 'equality etc' cooings of people who would do you harm. Having spent decades ensuring the young are as uneducated as possible, through Marxist ideology in schools and colleges, we have a population that overwhelmingly doesn't notice stuff.

Global Warming is an anti-capitalist scam. Why has the public not noticed there is never any open debate about it? Just lists of instructions and increased taxes. The EU is an anti-democratic scam to create the Franco-German empire they repeatedly failed to achieve through violence. Again, no-one notices the lack of debate.

It has been inserted into our thought processes that State control is good, always. So whenever something goes wrong the person in the street interviewed for TV says 'the government should do something'.

The whole country needs to grow up and take more responsibility (which means taking it from Corbyn and his thugs), not just the silly girl in the café.

Good God, Really? Brexit!

I'm pretty sure that everyone outside the Westminster bubble are mightily fed up with all the Brexit shenanigans. Seriously guys, as our American friends would say, get with the programme!

Basically, if you go right to the root of it, the problem is the modern misconception that has grown amongst the lightweights now in office as MP's and civil servants. That misconception is that they run the country, which of course they don't. There is some room to suggest that the dictatorship that is the European Union may have misled them, but whatever, it isn't quite true yet.

No, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is managed on behalf of the people by our MP's, who seek assistance in the implementation of accepted policies by an employed bureaucracy - the civil servants. MP's do not entertain themselves with their own personal opinions at our expense and civil servants have no role whatsoever in 'decision making'.

You can see immediately that in Britain today the belief amongst these people of little imagination, is that they are very much in charge. The swing away from Theresa May at the last General Election occurred as she lunged to the Left and put back on the shelf all the sensible, Conservative ideas she espoused at the outset. The people were indicating they wanted a strong nation in a strong recovery, not some sixth-form politics inspired Marxist Utopia.

The idea that the people own the law is very strange to the governments of the Continent and of course, abhorrent to those trying to establish an anti-democratic Empire.

So, to make it abundantly clear; the people of the UK voted to request and require of their government that the nation should leave the EU (be rescued, in fact). A meaningful vote had been held in parliament that whatever the people decided would be held to by all parties.

Which begs the question, why are we being daily assaulted by news of the latest petulant outburst from MP's who feel their personal opinion has any bearing? Why does the Marxist Party (Corbyn's so called Labour) keep putting obstacles in the way? They agreed to follow the will of the people by referendum (I get that, being simple-minded they can't remember the last piece of nonsense they uttered), so why all the opposition?

It really is stunningly simple, by whatever mechanism exists (Article 50, written by a Brit!) we are to leave the EU. It is then beholden on the EU to suggest what would be the relationship afterwards. Not least because they need us more than we need them, although a big point of annoyance to the outfit is the loss of our subscriptions. Hence the singular fixation in the EU with obtaining cash from us.

As far as I can see, those currently interfering with the smooth progress of an agreed and mandated action required of parliament places them in contempt. No MP impeding the will of the people has the right to draw funds from the taxpayers and so must be dismissed with. Call it an incentive or just encouragement.

But otherwise, just get on with it, we have been chained to a corpse for too long.

The Value Of Persistence

The persistence of the Left leaning journalists has paid off. They kept talking about the threats to Theresa May's premiership and literally nobody cared. They just lived in their own fevered bubble. Now though, their constant refrain has driven one self-absorbed MP to declare he would like to challenge, buoyed by believing Leftie journo's.

Of course there is dispute about the way things are going and ultimately it always comes back to the leader. Personally, I have no specific problem with Theresa May as a person, but where the hell are her 'ideas' coming from? Someone of influence has convinced her that adopting Labour policies is the only way to go. It clearly isn't working, but they are sticking with it.

May called a snap election because she thought the omens were there to get a real working majority to get things done. And I believe the country was ready to vote in precisely that way. OK so a lot of not very clever people, who had also recently been to university, fell for a ruse by the Marxist Corbyn, but the idea was still sound.

What actually caused the upset was the nonsense that May came out with as Conservative policies. Once they were aired, the vote deserted her party en bloc. And we have seen it since; every time it looks like the Conservatives say something robustly Tory the popularity of the party soars, then May announces a Labour-lite version and the shoulders slump.

Like a sufferer of domestic abuse, May goes to the EU, with sound and sensible ideas and gets abused. She gets angry (we've seen flashes of it), then forgives them and goes back for more. We are breaking up with them, so a temporary tantrum won't harm. Either they talk sense or we walk away. So we argue over the LP's (and they're all scratched), but we will get over it; banging your head on the wall might be habit forming, but it is going to be great when you stop!

The EU is an anti-democratic construct, held together by lies, a construct that the UK cannot ever have joined legally. But none of that matters apparently to the Remainers, who cling to nurse for fear of something worse, like the most timorous of children. May needs to lead the grown ups, and parenting (which she has been cruelly denied) is like leadership, you have to set boundaries, make your position on an issue crystal clear. Tell it like it is.

If you do, you will be unpopular with all the people that don't matter and achieve results of real and lasting importance to the whole nation.

Or maybe you and your simpleton advisors are right Theresa, the Conservatives have to become the Socialists while Labour have become the Communists.

For Left Inspired Opinion, Watch BBC News

I know this isn't a shock (the shock is, that with legal obligations the BBC are allowed to ignore them), but BBC News is actually just opinion through Left wing ideologically tinted glasses.

This morning Teresa may was 'interviewed' on Breakfast TV. The interview pretty much consisted of trying to trip her up on her Brexit talks or get her to say something negative about Boris Johnson. You know, stuff that only really matters to Leftie journalists and no-one else. It failed.

So then they went over to one of their own journalists and asked his opinion of what she had said. Why? Who cares? But of course, it looks like independent verification of Leftie ideas.

There is plenty of scope for a truly independent journalist to tear into the Conservatives and their, so far, bland conference. Conservatives (at least, traditionally) are about small government, individual liberty, freedom of opportunity and equality before the law.

What we currently have is a high spending looks-like-Labour Tory party that is in danger of appealing to absolutely no-one.

The still in sixth form journalists posing as adults on the BBC could just ask May "why don't you massively shrink the bloated state sector? Tony Blair, a man of no use or utility, hugely increased the state payroll to acquire client voters, so why not reverse it and close down the ever-increasing debt mountain?

Why not point out the damage not only the Labour actions of the Seventies did to Britain, but the current mess left by the policies and action of Blair and Brown? Having done so, you can then move on to the painful process of dealing with it. It is not the fault of those employed in the pointless bureaucracies and quangos dreamed up by Blair, that they are so employed. But for the sake of the country these constructs and their jobs need to go.

By being honest and up-front we can perhaps give them time to find alternative employment (though people like Shami Chakrabarti need a special kind of employer), before shutting the doors.

Why not change the school curriculum to include education on the agenda instead of endless Marxist propaganda. Then the future won't consist of emotionally weak, under educated snowflakes, but with people of drive, skilled and imaginative.

Hell, even without a proper education, how about an open science lesson about Climate Change; it would be an hour well spent and then the day after we can withdraw all the green-scam subsidies and reduce everyone's energy bills. The shock may melt some snowflakes and cause the rent-seekers to squeal like stuck pigs, but it would also save the lives of the pensioners condemned to die of cold this winter, because they can't afford to pay to heat their homes and enrich charlatans.

Messy Politics

Three aspects cause national upsets; the will of the people, alliances and hubris. Currently, the will of the people in the UK is quite distressing as the cult of self instigated under Tony Blair continues to bite, under the further influence of Marxist propaganda (particularly through the education system).

I say the will of the people is distressing because it lacks any ability to act rationally, with youngsters voting for very dangerous Totalitarians. Because there was a completely disingenuous offer to delete their student debt floated around. That they were stupid enough to believe such rubbish and so quickly, shows just how many of our youngsters today are taking a very long time to reach actual maturity.

Poorly educated (deliberately) and way too dependent, they besmirch those who fought to give them the right to vote. (They also, spit in the face of their grandparents and great grandparents who fought Totalitarianism to give them freedom - freedom they now wish to surrender).

Elsewhere, the ancient ideology that Nation States cause wars and must be deleted (for large empires, strangely, led by those who caused most of the wars, to gain an empire), finds itself in a  conundrum. All around the world, people show their desire to retain local identity, things they feel real allegiance to and that give them comfort in the familiar.

So we have the Catalans trying to ask the question, would they like to be an independent state? Nothing more than that, a poll to discover the strength of feeling of the people in the local area. The National government of Spain has said that to cede is illegal and so the referendum would be pointless.

OK, so that is the current legal view, but if the Catalans are not happy with it, then perhaps dialogue should commence? No, those in power do not want to see it 'undermined' and send in their paramilitaries to forcefully interfere with a harmless information gathering exercise (which is what the referendum surely is).

These officers of the state attacked the Catalan people deliberately and for no good reason. Illegally too, I'm sure, because the lovely Constitution of Spain may well insist Spain must always be what it is now, a single unit (albeit, interestingly, under the control of a foreign power as they ceded the whole country to Brussels), but I don't think local areas having a poll, regardless of the subject, is a crime?

Jeremy Corbyn, leading of course his own blackshirts, objects to this violence and demands Teresa May speak to the Spanish authorities. Naturally, the Venezuelan paramilitaries attacking their own people is fine by Jezza, because the government there is Communists. Violence by Communist regimes is expected, indeed part of the ideology, so what could Jeremy possibly object to?

And then there is the EU. They are completely silent about the violence perpetrated by a member state, supposedly under their control. But then they have to be, otherwise their whole project is in jeopardy, just like it needs to cause as much problem as possible to the UK, pour encourager les autres.

I'm sure the bureaucrats of the EU don't want people's heads cracked, but what to do? Firstly, hubris demands they do not give in, secondly, they are allied in spirit with the Spanish authorities and cannot therefore criticise what any human being would normally criticise. It leads to more violence of course, but the politicians are locked into positions; their ideology.

If only the will of the people could be suppressed, given no outlet to share ideas. Certainly, the leaders of the secretive EU have long thought democracy an inconvenient idea, so damaging to their project. For proof look no further than the 'stupid' decision to let the British people have their say. The delightful aspect of the UK referendum was plainly that, as yet the British people are not all snowflakes, unable to think for themselves, but can consider the evidence and come to the reasonable conclusion.

In one way I suppose the EU have stopped wars. Because in 1815 Britain and other countries objected to France attempting to create a European empire for itself and again with the Germans in 1914 and 1939, there were terrible wars. Now those very nations have managed to create their empire without war, just by the use of deceit and straightforward lying.

It isn't working and is falling apart (it is run by stupid ideologies, so it would, ideologies of French and German hegemony). Politicians should relearn their role and understand that the will of the people, always wins in the end.
