One thing which members of electorates may choose to consider is the tendency of their Government to sign up to legislation and guidelines laid down not just by the EU but by the United Nations.

In November 2013 the Office of the Children’s Commissioner recently released this report entitled “If only someone had listened” http://www.childrenscommissioner.gov.uk/content/publications/content_743 The report rattles off a series of statistics about children being involved in sex and sexual attacks etc, and the media put the sort of slant on it one would expect.

Attacks by children on children have continued to escalate since. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/pa/article-2934981/Under-10s-committing-sex-crimes.html

But who is responsible? That very same Office of the Children’s Commissioner (OCC), in its own words at the start of the report, says that “The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child underpins and frames all of our work”

That’s the same UN which in 2009 recommended that five year olds should be taught masturbation techniques. http://www.coe.int/t/ngo/Source/International_guidelines_on_sexuality_education_en.pdf

When the kids are being persuaded to explore sexuality before puberty, is it really such a surprise that these events are happening? And who benefits? For more news, please see 29 minutes in http://www.ukcolumn.org/video/uk-column-live-26th-november-2013

Whilst the majority of those who work for the UN and EU do so in good faith both of those bodies undermine national sovereignty through mandates which are unrecognisable compared to those which were initially “sold” to the public.

Some call it communism, others call it fascism, but both the UN and EU were founded and funded by those who hold a view that the earth should be run by an elite few with one massive underclass of “serfs”.

Do you remember what David Rockefeller said in 1994? “It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the light of publicity during these years. But now the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards world Government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”

And what of UN Agenda 21?

“Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level”. – – George H. Bush http://patriotupdate.com/articles/totalitarian-program-agenda-21-now-in-effect/

Whether you are an individual, a business or a nation, your individual characteristics, quirks and talents are being nullified; communities are being undermined by “one size fits all” diktat, http://communitypressgroup.com/articles/the-global-society-from-my-bank-account-to-glasgow-celtic-one-size-fits-all/ ignoring the fact that everyone brings something to the table and square pegs don’t go into round holes. If employers can’t refuse applicants on the basis of gender, disability, intelligence, character or looks, we could have one legged postmen, Quasimodo winning Miss World, Stevie Wonder flying planes, Susan Boyle playing for Arsenal and Wayne Rooney running NASA.

When we were teenagers I had a mate whose girlfriend used to retire to bed at 2030 telling her parents she was tired, pop downstairs at 2130 asking them to turn the TV down because it was keeping her awake, and she’d be out on the town with him by 2200. Attack is the best form of defence. Accuse others of being what you are. If you want to feather your nest, accuse others of doing it. If you are a sex offender, enable legislation which allows a sex offenders register to contain the names of people who have not been convicted or tried. If you want inequality, preach equality. Burn down the Reichstag and accuse your opposition of doing it. Those claiming to propose Scottish independence are doing so with what are actually plans to suck the country into the EU behemoth. Those saying they are protecting freedoms are taking them away. Those promoting anti discrimination are doing so in a highly discriminatory fashion. Some of Guernsey’s suggested consensus Government changes are plans for at least as much of a minority dictatorship as Cabinet Government.

It seems to me that we’re being led to believe that somehow discrimination is automatically bad. I suggest that a society without discrimination would be lawless. All rules and laws discriminate. Outlawing stealing discriminates against kleptomaniacs; prohibiting murder discriminates against psychopaths; the offside law discriminates against attackers. Are these bad laws? If the nanny state wants to justify introducing legislation it has to do rather better than shouting “discrimination” and walking off.

Glasgow Celtic FC recently got into hot water with UEFA and reprimanded its own fans after they displayed political views on Bobby Sands and William Wallace at a game with AC Milan.“Fans should leave their political views at home, we are a football club” stormed the Celtic chief. Yet a few months prior, Celtic had released an official anti-racism video, and days later their fans, along with all others, gave a minute of their time before a game to applaud Nelson Mandela. No reprimand there, but hypocrisy in abundance. If you and I went to a game and one of us displayed a “support gay rights and kick out racism banner”, and the other displayed an “oppose gay rights and support racism banner”, only one of us would see the entire game. If that’s not discrimination, what is?

No one on the planet is with the majority view on every single issue. Why should the minority or individual view – and talent -not be expressed? Increasingly we are losing the right to disagree with the (often self appointed) global authorities with whom anyone who remains silent is taken to agree. That will result in a global fiefdom.

One currency, one tax authority, one food supplier, (and by the way, the Chairman of Nestle recently said that drinking water is not a human right and aspartame was declared safe by the EFSA) one religion, one communication system, one media etc. All privately owned by the friends and family of those who were given the exclusive right to create money out of thin air.

Does anybody care?




The Guernsey Press ran a recent story connecting the Education Department’s “Big Society” plans to rebuild La Mare De Carteret with a debate on the eleven plus. This sparked a debate on whether the eleven plus should be retained or not between me and my mate Bill.

Bill came out with the usual nanny state arguments about kids being scarred for life and living in fear that their lives will be ruined if they don’t pass the eleven plus.

I said that everyone is going to fail at some point. Learning what your shortcomings are and learning to lose is part of the rounding process. Besides, I said, everyone brings something to the table. Overall we’re all equal, but society surely will function best by finding the optimum sum of the parts, we want round pegs in round holes and square peg in square holes. Therefore those with the highest IQ should not be held back by those of less intelligence and should receive the best education. Equally the best footballers should have the best football coaches, the best musicians the best musical training etc.

Bill says we’re sending out a message that the success of life of an individual is determined by their IQ. I asked if that is really so bad and even if it is, said that that cannot be the fault of the eleven plus. The eleven plus is the same as it has always been. I passed mine and I’m a milkman. George Bush became President of the USA – is his IQ higher than mine? Is his IQ higher than anyone’s? Ok –maybe Prince Andrew, but he’s not actually short of high living either.

In my day we just turned up at school and did the eleven plus. We didn’t really know what it was all about or attach any great importance to it. So if the kids are today somehow believing that proof of a high IQ is the be all and end all, we need to look at why that is. I was a lot more devastated when I realised I wouldn’t be a professional footballer than I would have been had I failed the eleven plus.

In fact given that computers and smart technology are increasingly doing most of the thinking and most of the work, those with higher intelligence seem to be being having their potential for contributing to society increasingly obscured.

Bill said that we can’t go back and change that. The internet horse has bolted and we should use the net and fight fire with fire. The eleven plus is not fit for purpose, Bill informs me, (churning out one of the standard lines of those with robotic tendencies).

My response to that is “defeatist claptrap”. It’s not surprising that Bill once walked off the football pitch when his team was losing. It’s a wonder he didn’t ask to play for the other team. People seem to accept change as if it is some sort of natural act or evolution. It isn’t. It’s driven by people, and people can drive it back.

If the horse has bolted then we should find a faster horse and bolt after it. If the eleven plus and the purpose aren’t marrying up, and we know the eleven plus hasn’t changed, then I contend that the purpose isn’t fit for the eleven plus.

Here’s an analogy:

There is a long straight wide, open, smooth road. At one end is Heaven, and at the other end is the human race, sitting in their cars as they do. Satan comes along and says “I’m not having this. I’m not going to get any customers”. So he puts a fork in the road (he’s good with forks, is Satan). He takes a leaf out of the Environment Department’s book (any similarity between Satan and individuals in the States are purely coincidental – I’d hate to offend Satan) and puts the traffic on the road to hell.

But the road which Satan has built is narrow and rutted and twisty and everything the road to Heaven is not. The traffic is stuck, confused, chaotic and congested. “What shall we do?” ask the humans.

“We need to smooth over, widen and straighten this road” says Bill.

“We need to get rid of the fork in the road” I said.

The humans had a choice.

Oh and by the way, what I wonder did Bill mean by “the success of the life of an individual?” It’s quite simple really.

There is no greater ambition than to be happy. So success is defined by happiness.

So once you learn that the only person who decides whether you are happy or not is you, it really is wonderfully simple. Ever since I was told this and started seeing things in this light, everything I see and do has been pure entertainment. It’s like being on the outside, watching a film. Or in my case, a feature length episode of “One Foot In The Grave” with me playing Victor Meldrew….
