Theresa May: trapped by corporate power and pc from Day One

mesnip Theresa Maniac having delivered the usual speech about healing rifts and working for all the people, The People go back about their business certain that stability is restored, we shall be vote-free until 2020, and God will return to sit in her Heaven. But it’s clear from the outset that the new Prime Minister will be will be dragging the recent, insane past behind her. The goblins setting the agenda want social pc and econo-political corporatism. Absolutely nothing has changed.

Mrs May (if the Daily Telegraph is to be believed) has no more idea about what real equality is than Dianne Abbot. A Tory throughout her life, she too has joined the knee-jerk Robomob who think it’s all about quotas.

If fitness for purpose is to be driven by gender – or social class, or school, or any other single, silly consideration – then we’re going to wind up with more of this:

Morgandick

Nicky Moron, a woman who thinks that Budgets are there to fly kites, experts are there to be ignored, and further education should turn into Newscorp Mobthink plc.

Human resources should be blind to all factors except proven ability and a creative, practical approach to the task in hand. Gender equality is about justice, not quotas. If 50% of the Cabinet is to be female, and 100% of 1950s/60s born women don’t have a pension, then there is no justice.

But the most noticeable thing about media reporting in the new century’s second decade is the constant creation of narratives about “what the markets thinks”. There is no logic at all to this criterion for judgement: on four separate occasions in my lifetime, the markets have offered conclusive proof that they barely know anything beyond how to turn disaster for others into money for them.

Brexstride

Ben Wright (whoeverTF you are) I don’t care if the markets take Brexit in their stride or in their tea: they know nothing about what really matters when it comes to the maintenance of civilised values, real economic creativity and what real people seek: a fulfilment that this idiotic perversion of capitalism never has and never will understand.

This is our Central Bank Governor – a Goldman Sachs alumni – supposedly there to promote confidence in the British finances in an apolitical manner. Instead, he has behaved like the standard Remaindeer concerned only with what Brussels and the US want, while wittering on about woes….but without saying what they are, why a cheap Pound should be a good thing for exporters, or the reality that our Forex relations are returning to normal already:

poundspikes

Here we go again – how the markets reacted to a new PM. It’s got nothing to do with you, you blithering idiots: face up to the global recession, get real about commodities, think about where ludicrously overvalued bourses are going next, stop pumping an oil price way beyond the demand for it, think harder about how on Earth the enrichment  of 3% can drive a consumption economy where 76% are poorer in historical terms….but chiefly, shut up.


They won’t shut up of course, any more than social ‘policy’ will stop pandering to outdated and/or ignorant ideas about anthropology.

The politicians will hang on the minorities’ every word, lick the bankers all over, and open their legs to any foreign investment like the undiscerning whores they are.

The deadwood ideologists will continue to divide us, and their rarely seen masters will continue to rule them.

If Theresa May manages to produce real independence for British citizens, foster business beyond the dying European Union, introduce proportional representation, and put the focus back on her increasingly pauperised electorate, she well get two cheers from me….perhaps even three on a good day after a few beers.

But she won’t – and everyone with an objective, caring approach to culture and human development knows that with hardly a scintilla of doubt.

So then, as Clive James once wrote, ‘May week was in July’. But Mayflies die quickly and summer warmth is fleeting: nothing has changed. We remain that nation about whom the Germans say, “They’re the only people in the world suprised by Winter every year”.

  1. All the politicians have done all my life is pretend they control the economy … call bullsh%t they sit on it riding it like a surfer looking for the ultimate ride. Tired of all their pretence because how do you heal a rift between in and out of such a scale.

    The answer is glaringly obvious, represent the people for a change! She could do a vote of no confidence in the government for the people and have a vote in the commons whereby fail and we can have a general election. She can still keep her position as PM but my estimation of her would rise putting the population first. Also we get a chance to oust all the Labour Blairites because to effectively govern you need a half decent opposition and they are not it as many of the population are seeing.

    All to bypass this 5 year rubbish Cameron put in place, mind you parliament is sovereign so it can in fact “tear this legislation up” and should.

    After a general election … we can all start moving forward.

  2. A cunning thought on my post … can we have a petition as a vote of no confidence in the government whereby in parliament they get to debate a vote of no confidence in themselves. The irony of it and it only takes 1,000,000 votes.

    If anybody does it let me know … signing that one for sure and all the population are included on that one.

  3. Give the woman a chance John. I met Mrs May recently and put it to her that most of the “establishment” — the police; government departments; quangos; big business; the Church & so on — had got into the habit of lying to the public and could no longer be trusted never mind respected. To my surprise she totally agreed but said it could only be sorted by reforming one sector at a time. She has made a good start with the Police and it sounds like she has her eye on big business. So I’m reserving judgement right now.

  4. I read the Ben Wright article (for those who want a giggle here is the link)..

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2016/07/12/we-mustnt-rain-on-the-leavers-parade-but-its-a-disquieting-outlo/

    What a load of rubbish! He even says in his first paragraph “…for those of us who voted to remain in the European Union and still regard Brexit as a colossal mistake…”. Hardly an objective viewpoint and so many points in the article that I wanted to respond to but…no comments section!

  8. The only way to make the markets reflect reality in any real way is to make the capital gains tax 100% for any ‘investment’ that lasts less than 6 months. The tax to be levied on the difference between cost at purchase and cost at sale regardless of sign. So if you lose £1000 or gain £1000 you get taxed on £1000. This would stop people literally gaming the system and kill ‘shorting’. It won’t happen of course as the bagatelle players would merely move to a different bourse to continue their games with computers making ‘investments’ lasting hundredths of a second. However, it the results would be more of an indicator of what investors really thought about stocks.

  9. Mr Ward,
    I take back all of the snipey comments I have made about your judgement. An absolutely excellent on the mark comment which, unfortunately fills me with gloom.

    Bourse capitilalism is justified only in the dubious proposition that its ‘efficiency’ gains benefit human societies as a byproduct of its actions. It is supported and protected by the power of the state to this end. As soon as it becomes the plaything of sociopathic gamblers and carpetbaggers that parasitise the system at the cost to society as a whole it fails to be worthy of state protection. Ian W. simply suggested a mechanism that might reduce the negative effects while retaining the productive parts of the obviously flawed system. It does not seem to me to be outlandish that the state should be free to modify the rules governing such a system as it only exists at the pleasure of the state. If you believe otherwise, or have a cogent argument against that of Ian W’s I would be interested to read it, but using the epithet ‘comrade’ and throwing in the straw man of bus driver and air traffic controller salaries seems unworthy.

All in favour of the usual, which leads to large amounts of idiotic immigrants nobody wants, lots of Lesbian woman talking bollocks and a sickening sense of uncontrolled insanity growing by the day.

  14. Oh and one more thing. Is it me, or is the portrayal of the decision to brexit as something like a disaster or a funeral now starting to look and sound very strange indeed? Its like the Media is controlled by the EU, just like Westminster.

    It may be news to you, but the mainstream media IS controlled by the EU – check on the millions the BBC takes from Brussels on the condition that it reports positive EU stories only – and that’s the corruption we know about, imagine what’s going under the table.

    It’s not the European Union that controls the media… that’s a distraction. It’s Washington. The same people who control Westminster.

    If nice stories are portrayed about the EU, it is because it benefits Washington to do so.

  19. While May is ensconced Labour is making itself irrelevant. On the Beeb this morning the ex labour MP Bob Marshall Andrews dismissed all of Corbyn’s followers and said that what is required is a comeing together of the Labour parliamentary party, the Lib Dems and the Greens to make “Common Cause”. He then said that would be a good name for a party and sniggered. I think he almost had a slip of the tongue and said “Common Purpose”. Sometimes they are quite blatant.

    Theresa May made all the right noises so I will give her the benefit of the doubt but won’t hold my breath. Remember Camoron and “The Big Society”. What happened to that?
