Until It Ends, There Is No End

Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed.
Everything else is public relations.
( George Orwell )

If I’m wrong, educate me.. Don’t belittle me.

The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.
( Wayne Dyer, 1940-2015 )

Our population is being replaced by people with norms and values that are not ours.
( Geert Wilders )

Leaving would cause business uncertainty, while embroiling the Government for years in a fiddly process of negotiating new arrangements, so diverting energy from the real problems that have nothing to do with Europe.
( Boris Johnson, February 2016 )

Because of new laws brought in by the Conservative Government, the UK is now ranked 40th in the world for freedom of press.
The 2017 World Press Freedom Index ranks the UK behind countries such as Costa Rica, Jamaica, Estonia, Slovakia, Samoa, Czech Republic, Namibia, Uruguay, Ghana, Latvia, South Africa, Liechtenstein, Chile, Trinidad and Tobago, Andorra, Lithuania, and Slovenia.

Not only is the universe stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine.
( Arthur Stanley Eddington, 1882-1944 )

Others rain on your parade because they are jealous of your sun when they only have shade.
( Eileen Hutchison, 1926-2008 )

We are all of us clocks whose faces tell the passing years.
( Arthur Stanley Eddington, 1882-1944 )

This soulless nature of the scientific world need not worry those who are persuaded that the main significances of our environment are of a more spiritual character.
( Arthur Stanley Eddington, 1882-1944 )

I mean what I say and I say what I mean.
There won’t be an early election.
There should be no general election until 2020.
( Theresa May, 30.06.2016 )

We have leaders and politicians who have lost sight of the truth..
And have replaced truth with laws and regulations to further their greed.

It’s Sheriff-of-Nottingham times.
Why aren’t the bankers in the dock ?
The working classes are suffering in this country.
They’re a joke in the media – they’re portrayed as chavs and rioters.
( Paul O’Grady )

There was a time when science wasn’t taken seriously and religion ruled the world.
We called it the Dark Ages.

Education makes us a white man’s equal..
The lack of it makes us his victim.
( Joe Medicine Crow, 1913-2016 )

Passports ? ..
When government takes your right to travel and sells it back to you.

The belly is an ungrateful wretch..
It never remembers past favours, it always wants more tomorrow.
( Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, 1918-2008 )

Until it ends, there is no end.

In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future.. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.
( Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, 1918-2008 )

Fire Officers Warn That Cuts Pose A Risk…
Chief fire officers have warned that further budget cuts pose a risk to community safety as official figures revealed the biggest increase in fire deaths for a decade.
The latest figures from the Department for Communities and Local Government show that 294 people died in fires in England during 2015, an increase of 21% compared with the 242 deaths recorded in 2014 and the largest increase since figures were published in 2001-02.. The chief fire officers from the six largest English cities outside London said the rise was worrying as the fire service faces budget cuts of up to 50% by 2020, from the 2010 benchmark.
( The Guardian, April 2016 )

A Horror Caused Entirely By Us…
It is almost physically painful to listen to our political leaders as they jut their chins, do their Churchill imitations, and march towards yet another disaster.
I ask all these people to see if they can arrange a weekend break in Libya, the country they ‘liberated’ a couple of years ago.. The Tripoli airport, alas, long ago closed and seems to have been burned down.. But perhaps they can hitch a ride on one of the pirate boats that criss-cross the Mediterranean, bringing uncontrollable legions of migrants to Italy, bound for Calais.. That filthy business, too, is the fault of our Prime Minister and those who supported his Libya adventure.. The disturbing scenes at Calais, as migrants battle to board British-bound ships, are David Cameron’s direct responsibility, and the responsibility of all those who uncritically backed his adventure.
Nobody goes to Libya, now a cauldron of blood and screams where no sane person will venture, a horror caused entirely by us.
(Peter Hitchens, 07.09.2014)

Laid-Back Italians More Productive Than UK…
For all George Osborne’s bluster, Britain remains a low-wage, low-output economy.. British workers put in the longest hours in Europe yet produce less than any other major industrialised nation.. The French could take every Friday off and still produce more each week than we do.. And even the laid-back Italians are nine per cent more productive than us.. Of the original fifteen EU states, only Europe’s basket cases Greece and Portugal have lower hourly wages.. Instead of investing in plant and technology essential for long-term growth, business is investing in labour because it is so cheap.
(Nigel Nelson, 13.12.2015)

If you’ve come into our country and you commit a crime, you should be deported, end of story.
(Ray Winstone, December 2008)

We don’t have to be unequal.. Poverty isn’t inevitable.
It doesn’t have to be unfair.. Things can, and will change.
(Jeremy Corbyn)

George Orwell…
George Orwell was a patriotic, liberty-loving socialist who learned to loathe most of his Leftist comrades.. His writing, unlike theirs, was as clear as a newly cleaned windowpane.. That is because he, unlike them, refused to lie for the cause, and admitted its faults.. They loathed him for it when he was alive, and they always will loathe him for it.
(Peter Hitchens, 07.09.2014)

British voters and European leaders should have one thing in common.. Not trusting David Cameron.. As slippery as a mud wrestler covered in grease.
The only thing open about Mr Cameron is his gaping mouth when he’s telling porkies.
(Daily Mirror, 18.12.2015)

ISIL hasn’t come from nowhere.
ISIL isn’t funded by nobody.
ISIL doesn’t sell its oil to nobody.
ISIL doesn’t receive its arms from nowhere.
You’ve got to ask some questions about the arms sales we’ve made to many countries around the Gulf.. And we’ve got to ask some questions of the bankers and the banking system that allows that oil money to go in and out.
( Jeremy Corbyn )

Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.
That is easy.. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.. It works the same way in any country.
( Hermann Wilhelm Göring, German politician, military leader, and leading member of the Nazi Party )

I was born with my heart on my sleeve
A fire in my soul
And a mouth I can’t control.

It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.
( Mark Twain )

Theresa May has the warmth, wit and oratorical ability of a fridge-freezer.
( Rod Little )

Judged by its own stated goals, government austerity policy isn’t working.. Of course, the reality is that austerity policies are actually designed to dismantle the welfare state, bring down wages and fully marketise the economy, destroying all social and economic gains of ordinary people since the second world war.. So from the government point of view the policies are working.
( Ken Loach )
