Survival

Don’t give a dam or f…ck whether you call it global warming,climate change, environment protection or koala protection. What the world needs is a new batch of leaders who have the globe’s interests and all species survival at heart – not thinking of the next Hawaiian luau. Not this f….cking self serving bunch globally in power! Stop voting for greed driven not fit for purpose financial system arsholes and celebrities! Start listening to real scientists and finance properly real coordinated research, start trying to eliminate the ignorance, assumption (the mother of all f…ck-ups) and innuendo! Give them the global war budget after some spend on the repair of the destruction rained on most of the people and the planet by the what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine politicians.. Reduce the wealth of the 1%. 1 billion each is still enough to shop at Harrods. Species survival is the real war. Survival will take some growing up!

Comment

This is a revealing article and is a problem that decrees selection not on the basis of real capability and intelligence. Real capability and value added more often than enough comes from the fight to the top commencing in the environment of birth. It is one of the reasons why so many difficulties exist in the political arena. A good university and a sense of entitlement does not necessarily make for a good leader in fact it can be the worst combination. It is a country’s great loss if it doesn’t drill down into its population to find the leaders of the future based on intellegence and understanding. Just because a person can spell in latin is not a guide to intellegence depth of perception and understanding. Such a social restriction is not a method for selecting the strong in fact it can be the opposite!

Watch “Brexit: Endgame – The Hidden Money, with Stephen Fry” on YouTube

Much of what Stephen Fry says here is correct. London already has a global tax haven status if you are outside British dominions this will gain strength after Brexit and will only increase the UK wealth gap. Funds will be domiciled here on a low if any tax basis, financial bonuses will be paid on a low if any tax basis.

Trump’s tax deal has increased corporate profit margins but not perculated down to wage increases. Somerset Capital Jacob Rees-Mogg’s company has relocated to Dublin this could change with no deal Brexit and cheap fund management domicile in the UK. Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and to a degree British dominions Bermuda and Cayman Islands have already been pressurised out of the offshore business mainly by EU legislation.

Immigration has always been a Red Herring. This is a game of deregulation a game the EU has been combating.

This direction will increase a governments concentration on London the North of the UK will continue to suffer from low investment especially with reductions in industry such as cars. You have already seen where British steel is going. Farage, Johnson and Gove are extremely dangerous and financially motivated much of this is about securing for the rich the London driven financial services industry a necessary industry but not at the expense of the country.

The US has been securing the control of the global banking system for sometime now. The big blocks China and the EU to a lesser degree Russia will be able stand up to any US pressure. Britain will be exposed both financially and trade.

Where are we?

We blame Islam and migration for all our problems while overlooking Battle of Towton war of Roses 28,000 men hacked to death on one day more than the first day of the Somme 19 000 first day, WW1, WWII, Bosnia, Crimea, 100 years’ war, massacre at Ayyadieh, murder of the Aborigines in Australia right up to 1960s, Australia is still recovering from a white Australia policy that was far stricter than South Africa’s,attempted destruction of the Maoris New Zealand, Spanish civil war, Greek civil war, invasions of Africa India, Inquisition, white supremacy main proponents of terror in the US, mass killing of bison in US in order to wipe-out the Red Indian, Chechnya, Korean War.

Yes address terrorism but terrorism from where!

Our real problems, lack of understanding, ignorance, education, poverty, bigotry, insecurity, distribution of wealth ,greed.
We are taught to be aggressive to one another from the first toy gun under the Christmas tree we are primeval.
Our politics and insecurity have not changed since we migrated from Ethiopia. Today is no different to yesteryear! the only difference WiFi. Brexit is a symptom of our inability to develop relationships that work for all parties our insecurity dictates that we fight with our neighbour..

Brexit Reality

Just some reality
About 6.5% of German cars come to the UK.
About 2.6% of German GDP is exported to UK including the 6.5% cars
France exports about 1.4% of GDP to the UK.
The internal EU market is of great importance to EU member states including Germany and France although the UK is an important market a unified Europe is a first priority.
Within the exports to the UK you also have to look at the Rotterdam effect these are European goods passing through the UK to markets beyond. They are calculated into the UK import figures and no one has done the maths on the real effect.
Market GDP
US 19.39 Trillion very difficult for major economies to cut trade deals with and the UK will always be a fringe player here while a major player in the EU.
EU 18.7 Trillion UK already has trade deals.
UK 2.66 Trillion
On a per capita basis the UK is the 28th wealthiest country in the world.
You can say exports to the EU are falling however you can’t calculate the build-on factor growing what you already have. The strategy that most business utilise in order to survive.
Even the Iceni traded with their closest neighbour Europe especially the Italians!
This does not cover all the other disruption airlines, travel ,travel insurance, medical issues, citizens rights, plus the 1000s of non-tariffs that have to be negotiated. Also not to mention the Irish border and Gibraltar. It takes many years to negotiate trade deals there are many precedents for such trade arrangements. Also the current political class don’t seem to have the abilities required to manage a go it alone position.
