We have many problems in this Country of ours. If you would allow me a few minutes of your time, I would endeavour to highlight a few; not obviously all, of course, that might take all day.
We could begin with the overburden of the State’s Machinery by which it purports to govern us, and if you check out this spreadsheet, you could begin to understand how much of our cash goes into the ever-open jaws of Government. Just by printing that same spreadsheet out, and then sticking a pin at random, there is much which is surplus, spendthrift or foolish.
We have an employment crisis on our hands, partly the result of ludicrous National and Local Government policies, partly because we are tied into the Eurozone, and there ain’t much business with the bulk of Europe. Too much of our manufacturing has been exported to Asia & China, and once the factories disappear, they never come back. Our expertise and endeavour, in so many areas, has been sold down the river for a song, and the same applies to our Utilities. The profits from our Water and Electricity bases, once our own to use as we saw fit, now disappear towards France and Germany.
Once the Armourer to the world, Great Britain doesn’t even have the capacity to produce ammunition for the rifles of the Army, not that we have so much of that particular human commodity any more, as we are busy getting rid of all the soldiers, and will be dependent upon the Territorials for 30% of Army manpower in two years time. The last tank factory is closing down, we hardly make warships any more, and as for the ludicrous state of play with two aircraft carriers, one of which will probably never sail; and there will be no aircraft to fly off the other one; so we shouldn’t really bother.
Let us turn to mass immigration, now that it is no longer ‘racist’ to even question why some five million people have been allowed to enter our porous borders, and examine why we cannot even get a Government with the balls to state ‘Stop; enough is enough!’? True, the vast majority of migrants wish to work hard and do well by their families; but deep within the five million we have allowed a sinister portion of our enemies to reside in our towns and cities, and they will never stop until they see their beloved Caliphate.
Our very Sovereignty has been handed over to a bunch of bureaucrats in Brussels, and no-one has even bothered to ask us if we mind! Eighty-odd percent of our Law now emanates from Europe, and once an EU Directive is passed, usually by majority voting, we have to allow and follow those rules, no matter how daft they may be, because we don’t even control how we are governed any more!
The list could go on, and on, but I might bore you. So I will end by highlighting the one thing which has been grasped by influential minds as being a true emergency.
The Council for the Protection of Rural England is proposing a 5p surcharge on supermarket plastic bags, and her friend of ‘Grumpy Old Women’ fame tries one better and states that charge should be £1.00. Just guess which of the myriad problems will be attacked first!
