The American Dream -Nestle in California

nestleWhilst speaking with my mate from Nestle CEO (Chief Executive Officer) Tim Brown over Skype last night, I was feeling good, this is England not California and the sun was shining and…, I just said casually, ” Tim this is the American Dream, you can have it all. “I didn’t think he would take me so literally, he must be a weee bit autistic I guess, I can assure you he’s not a sociopath, he’s nothing like David Cameron. Then he declared that he was going to INCREASE his human rights, the American ‘have it all dream’, and he was going to take every last drop of water out of the water reserves in California.” Well in a weird way I could see his point, absolutely, that’s what being an American is, anyone can become the Chief Executive Officer in America, and being a very important person like a  CEO allows you to have that kind of freedom. “Come on mate, if anyone can understand this I know you can!” he said to me, “This is Natural Selection, I have the power, I’m going to exercise that power and to hell with the ‘hippies’ complaining, if they want water they can buy it, buy it from me, he laughed!” Well it wasn’t an ordinary laugh, it was the kind of laugh you have when you’re auditioning for a Hammer House of Horror film, I wondered if he had had a bit to drink, he was very self assured and acting very confident, mmmm I thought, does he have the Humpty Dumpty syndrome and was he just about to fall. Not wanting to disagree as I may be on track for a good job at Nestle when I retire, in an advisory role of couse, no one wants to work for a living, I couldn’t help but having to agree with him, “Go for it Tim, Coca Cola did it in India, they didn’t care if the farmers lost their crops and committed suicide whilst they bottled up their Coca-Cola, and lets face it Tim I would rather drink Coca-Cola than that Indian water eh? America, land of the free!!! Tim it’s your ‘right’ buddy.” I said, not wanting to jeopardize my future job prospects.

Immigration Prime Minister David Cameron promises to clamp down

Whilst I was sipping my port at White’s Gentlemen’s Club, St James Street, I could see in the adjacent leather chesterfield single seatter my old mucker from Eaton David (Cameron) nestling another Scotch in his hand trying to relax from what had obviously been a hard day at number 10. He looked like he’d been arguing with Theresa again, same old argument, “I can look meaner than you, no you cannot etc etc.” each one pulling face after face to see who can look the meanest. I didn’t see Sammy or the children running around so I could only assume he had left the kids at another pub or in the car, with a bottle of ‘pop’ and a packet of pork scratchings. Please don’t confuse this Whites with the lap-dancing club with the same name just around the corner, which I NEVER frequent, so dash those horrible chaps that spread those malicious rumors. Anyways as I was saying, dearest David was sat in the adjacent chair, slowly sipping his whiskey and giving it the occasional ‘looking cool’ swirl around the glass, and I just thought I would ask him a few questions, so I leaned over.
“Excuse me David, hope you don’t think I am being rude but…” I said casually.
“I heard you talking about immigration on the TV today, as always you looked great,” he thanked me for the compliment and I continued, “I must say, I think that’s a great idea to confiscate the earnings of those migrants, I guess we could use that money to send em back, where they come from, or we could send ‘em to Blairmore, Scotland and when the Scots get their independence we will be free of ‘em”
The long and short of this conversation was that he didn’t agree with the location but the idea in essence sounded OK.”
I told him that I ran two very successful companies, off shore, of course, one selling books and the other coffee, I pay no tax at all, I told him straight, “David I said, you drive those immigrants away and I will be under pressure to pay a ‘living wage’, I am a firm believer in supply and demand, if I have the jobs I want to pay minimum wages, supply and demand, David supply and demand, and I don’t want the workers demanding ‘living wages’  what do you think you’re playing at, call yourself a Conservative!” I shouted, as I was getting a bit hot and bothered under my starched white collar and black evening bow tie.
Alas he did agree and told me straight, I have to shout and bawl about the immigrants, we have to move the blame to the immigrants, we have to say the immigrants are getting your jobs or the voters will think we don’t care about ‘em and they would be right, but I cannot say that. “Let me tell you this is private too,” he added, “Those so called lousy immigrants are the ones who boosted our economy last year, there’s hardly any unemployed immigrants ’cause they work for less than the Brits, so yes, you’re right, they are great for the Conservative Party, Business Model, keeping wages down and paying hefty taxes. he told me to keep it quiet, and in the main I have, but I just wanted to boast about our meeting.

Human Rights Act

Human Rights

May 2015
You always have to be suspicious about a Government who want to change the Human Rights Act, in it’s own country, wouldn’t this be Like Jeremy Clarkson asking for the abolition of the 70 mph speed limit on our roads, you have to ask yourself why? Why would the Government want to take away, or mess with, your human rights, to do what? My initial guess is that the Conservative Government want to take away employment laws to make way for the Americans to bring in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.

Why is this important?
So the big talk is about being British, if you’re not being British we are gonna get you, that seems to be the battle cry, or that’s the way I see it. Well looking at the list I can see many many human rights that would be easy targets, things that they could easily breach if they don’t see you as being British. 1st of all we need to define British, British Gas, British Rail, British Steel, British this and British that, no longer exists, it’s all been sold off by the Conservatives Government under Mr Margaret Thatcher and the New Conservatives under Tony Blair.
British Gas owned by companies such as e.on a French Company.
British Rail, out of 27 private rail contracts in Britain, the equivalent of 74% are now owned by foreign states, the vast majority from France, Germany and the Netherlands.
British Royal Family, Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark, what makes someone British were are a race of mongrels, who hasn’t invaded England, the Romans invaded, now integrated, French, William of Orange the list goes on…

So my view is that the Human Rights are going to be breached not because of any un-British behavior, by the scapegoats, immigrants or so called Muslim extremists, but to allow for  the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.

So the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership enjoys being discussed in great secracy, not even mentioned in the recent elections. TTIP represents trade negotiations being carried out mostly between the EU and US. TTIP is about reducing the regulatory barriers to trade for big business, so we can expect to be eating more Genetically Modified Food, from America,things like food safety laws which I guess will be dropped. So I guess our human rights bill, will have deminishing rights the right to read on the food label what you are eating, the right to avoid GM (genetically modified) products, or products that have been spayed with the cancer giving ‘Round Up’ a pesticide manufactured by, yes you guessed Monsanto, the Devil incarnate. By the way…recently the state of Illonois, America fought with the Pure Evil Monsanto greedy giant over legislation which would stop the public knowing from ‘food labeling’ what they were eating.

Banking regulations, which are grim enough at the best of times and have already lead to one ‘Bank Bail Out’, if regulations are seen as anti profit then they would be dumped in the name of ‘trade”

The TTIP negotiations started February 2014, who is aware of them? No one! why? Because the process has been secretive and undemocratic. Thank God for people like Edward Snowdem and others who are socially minded enough to leak documents, very un-British, off with their heads! Freedom of Information, what happened to that?
The NHS
Public services, such as the  NHS will be opened up to the highest bidder for ‘Trade’ purposes of course. Chances are it will be sold off like the water and gas to Europe’s money makers, or the American drug companies. Exactly what the Conservatives want, to ditch their responsibility for the HNS, same too with education I guess, ‘School Academies’ will be sold off or leased to big businesses, the British Taxpayer we will be renting those schools properties, as they do now with the privatised Hospital Buildings creating a big payout from the Taxpayers into the pockets of private enterprise, not just a little bit more expensive but vastly overpriced. We the TAXpayers are literally feeding the greed of  big businesses, I hear you shout so, what is new? and I have to say, mmmm nothing. Good ol’ Trade Minister Lord Livingston, doing his bit for secret negotiations of the infiltration of big business into the NHS.
Then there’s the JOBS, TTIP will probably cause unemployment as jobs switch to the US, where labour standards and trade union rights are lower. OR we can take away some more Human Rights from the British workers so that the 1% Super Rich can have cheap labour. To make profit someone must be exploited, there is no other way?

Her are the list of your Human Right as they stand today, we better count them before they get trampled underfoot.

How can anyone oppose any of the following:
Right to life
Freedom from torture and inhuman or degrading treatment
Right to liberty and security
Freedom from slavery and forced labour
Right to a fair trial
No punishment without law
Respect for your private and family life, home and correspondence
Freedom of thought, belief and religion
Freedom of expression
Freedom of assembly and association
Right to marry and start a family
Protection from discrimination in respect of these rights and freedoms
Right to peaceful enjoyment of your property
Right to education
Right to participate in free elections

What a disappointment that the Conservatives got in May 2015

cam3

I was incredibly disappointed to see that the Tories got into power again with a majority vote May 15. 2015, I guess in the main this was due to the Rupert Murdoch press machine, (notice I put unadulterated picture of him in place, without ‘photoshoping’ horns onto his head.)

Rupert Murdoch Media Devil

Rupert Murdoch Media Devil

So… Mr. R. Murdoch sent a note out to all his employees, who were busy, peacefully, laying out leaded letters in wooden trays, mirror image of course, ready to print, thinking this could be another ‘Wapping’ where any minute now he could move his whole operation back to ‘Fleet Street’ and sack the lot of ‘em, so he demanded them to paint the opposition, Mr Ed Miliband in a bad light, no mention of policy, newspapers are not in the business of information they are in the business of ‘celebrity making and breaking’, that’s it! Nothing else! No policies analysed, just personalities photographed as their false teeth fell out whilst laughing, the Murdoch policy is all about character assassination. The Tory press must congratulate themselves, they got their Editors wishes in place, Rupert Murdoch got what HE wanted, that is Mr David Cameron in front of the fire side at number 10, burning all the papers he was in charge of during Leon Brittan stay in the cabinet, after all it’s important to keep warm. Imagine a situation when the newspapers and media, owned by a few, and that those few individuals can dictate the next UK Prime Minister. But so too the American President, Mr Murdoch plays his part in that too, SKY news in the UK and his handful of the most influential Newspapers and CNN in America, Fox in Australia, they dictate to the public who becomes the President of the United States. What a sad state of affairs. I friend of mine quoted one of those cliches, which is, ‘You get the Government you deserve’, I’m not sure about that. People may say “Well! you have the choice of Government, you vote for them!”And that is true, but…the media is dumbing down it’s news feeds to the UK people, the population is getting baby talk and idiots from Eaton interviewing one of their own. A good example of this is to watch the BBC and see how they trivialize politics, this can easily be illustrated by those who feed our diet of politics into the system, those friends of the Government who shared their dormitories at Eaton, Oxford, Cambridge and the like, now managers at the BBC. The BBC could never be accused of giving jobs to the most competent, it’s jobs for the boys, BBC jobs via some family connections, people like David Dimbleby, John Snow (who I think is OK) Peter Snow and his son Dan Snow all chosen on competence? Nothing to do with family connections, lets not be too keen to shout ‘nepotism’. As we said above, who owns the press? Mr. Murdoch owns the Press! or some other Lord from the privileged classes. So the BBC has some half wit journalist from Eaton, looking at the newspapers cover stories, in a section of the news called as, ‘What the Papers Say’ who did we say owns those paper? Rupert Murdoch owns those papers,  The Sun, The Times, Sunday Times, if it wasn’t so serious it would make you split your side laughing.
WappingJanuary 1986, Wapping, where Rupert Murdoch maneuvers a strike via his well paid Lawyers so that he is able to SACK his 6,000 employees without pay and without redress. He’s made a study of the laws. The Police were plainly on his side, not forgetting the government of the day bending over backwards to ensure nothing would stand in the way of the media baron’s ambitions. And we like idiots, cry out! yes! let this man influence our votes for the next Prime Minister of the UK. The lunatics have taken over the asylum.

So what does a Majority Vote actually amount to?
The Conservatives won only 24.3 per cent of all registered voters in the UK to gain their majority. Around 15.7 million of all those registered to vote didn’t vote. 30.7 million did vote. And 11.3 million gave their votes to the Tories. The sums say that the Tories only got in with 23% of the UK public voting for them, no wonder they don’t want proportional representation, with that majority vote they can now start to smash up the country, and you can bet that the ‘super rich’ will become even ‘super richer’ it goes without saying the poor and the less fortunate, will become very poor and the middle classes will carry on struggling to keep an even keel. The illusion is that the Conservatives look after multi millionaires and that some of the upper middle classes and small business owners think they are Conservatives voters, this is a big mistake in their thinking, they think they are ‘well off’ that is the illusion, their feeling of being well of is relative to the poor and not the 1% ‘super rich’. The Conservatives talk about fair competition that is not true, the Conservatives are ruled by the really really big businesses who donation massive amounts to the Conservative party and in return and like the giants that they are they have a massive appetite that needs feeding, any Government becomes their new ‘keeper’ looking in this case the Conservatives.  Those in Giant businesses have massive appetites and drive down competition so that those big business, international conglomerates,  no longer have competition. Try opening a Bank, try to manufacture herbal drugs, try manufacture bread or any food for that matter, sell your chickens to a supermarket, the big boys have it stitched up they get rid of competition by regulating, the regulations stop competition, the Tory party are the new communists, they have restricted all competition by regulating, everything you eat is regular, everything you wear is regulated by some fashion house, the small man is driven out of business. Count how many bakeries where in the UK in 1960 count how many slaughter houses were in the UK during the 70’s, how many local towns had their own newspapers, regulations drive down competition, and those that ask for the business to be regulated are the big businesses, Who regulates food standards? not the Government the Foods Standards Agency is expected to regulate itself. Who regulated the new drugs that come on the market? The Drugs, should be regulated by ‘Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency’, if they are regulated by the Government how come we had a situation whereby the MHRA had been criticised by the House of Commons Health Committee for, among other things, lacking transparency, and for inadequately checking drug licensing data. The MHRA (and US Food and Drug Administration) have been criticised in the book by Dr David,  ‘Bad Pharma’

The House of Commons Health Committee,  reprimanded the MHRA for having undergone regulatory capture; advancing the interests of the drug companies rather than the interests of the public. Surprise, surprise, so too the Alcohol industry regulates itself, unbelievable. Big business is running the country NOT the Government.

All these things a SELF regulated, where’s the insentive to be keep the public safe?

The privileged classes are privileged

It was interesting today to read what we are totally aware of in the uk, that is that privileged classes are privileged, so what’s new? the article went on to say, that those who had attended fee-paying schools included:
• 71% of senior judges
• 62% of senior armed forces officers
• 55% of permanent secretaries (the most senior civil servants)
• 53% of senior diplomats.
Also privately educated were 45% of chairmen and women of public bodies, 44% of the Sunday Times Rich List, 43% of newspaper columnists and 26% of BBC executives. In sport, 35% of the England, Scotland and Wales rugby teams and 33% of the England cricket team also went to private schools. All of these things are well know. in the song/hymn all things bright and beautiful the lines, before they were changed, the 3rd verse read…”The rich man in his castle,The poor man at his gate, God made them high and lowly, And ordered their estate”. It’s always been in the interest of the rich and the ‘Tories at prey’ referring to the Bishops etc, who absent from the list, but most of our Bishops are from Private school too, could the head of the Church of England, the Queen of England, appoint a commoner, no way! The working class should know their place in society, refer back to the hymn ‘All things bright and beautiful.’
When they interviewed a Headmaster of a private school he said something like, “Well…of course we need intelligent people to run the country and be in the top positions, therefore we choose people from Oxford and Cambridge…” yes, but what he didn’t mention is what percent of the Eaton / Harrow population made up the student number at Oxford and Cambridge, nor did he mention the grades that they got/got, somehow there was an inference that Eaton and Harrow plus other privately educated children get better grades than other members of society, is it the case? I’ll bet those students with the highest grades make up a very small percentage of the Oxford and Cambridge student population and yet they still get the top Government positions. It’s a form of ‘racism’ but directed at the less wealthy. “Ohhh it’s so unfair.”
