NIGEL FARAGE OUTRAGEOUS AND STRANGE CALL FOR A SECOND EU REFERENDUM.

Nigel Farage,s call for a second UK referendum on Britains membership of the European Union. Is to say the least both strange and also outrageous. It is also very puzzling.

Farage as leader of UKIP has spent the last twenty years or so campaigning for the UK to leave the EU. After this aim and victory has been achieved he now seems to want to undo his victory. This of course raises a number of issues.

Firstly Farage must know that if Britain stayed in the EU then Britain would eventually have to join both the euro currency and the EU fascist superstate. This is of course being planned by the EU fascists like Martin Schulz and Donald Tusk.

Secondly one must ask the question why has Farage made this strange call for a second EU referendum. Some people might say he secretly wants the UK to stay in the EU so that he can keep his seat in the European parliament. Also keep himself in the public eye by making speeches ‘against’ the EU

However I suspect another motive. Farage may possibly be controlled opposition. He never really expected the UK to vote to leave the EU. Thus his call for a second UK referendum on EU membership at the behest of the globalists and EU fascists. So that after a second referendum this country can be slowly dragged into the EU fascist superstate.

However, I say we must say no to a second UK referendum on EU membership. The British people have already made their decision to leave the EU. Defend British national democracy. Yes to a socialist Britain outside the fascist EU. Best wishes to all for the future.

YES TO A SOCIALIST IRAN NO TO A WESTERN IMPERIALIST BACKED COUP.

My first blog of 2018 is a response to the demonstrations that are taking place in Iran at the present time and which raises a number of key issues.

Firstly the hypocrisy of Donald Trump. Attacking the Iranian government and praising the demonstrations in Iran. But at the same time Trump backs the Saudi and Bahrain dictatorships. He also backs Israels ethnic cleansing in Palestine and the Saudi backed genocide in Yemen. Also it should be pointed out that the American police have shot dead nearly one thousand African Americans in the last year.

Secondly Britain and other western imperialist powers have invaded Iran on four occasions. So there is little historical western interest in the rights and interests of the people of Iran. Also Britain helped to arrange the fascist coup in Iran in 1953 that brought the Shah of Iran to power.

Thirdly as for the demonstrations in Iran to be blunt one has to be suspicious of the motives of some of the people taking part. Of course some of the demonstrators may have legitimate grievances. However they seem to be taking a pro western imperialist/ pro Israel line. Which begs the question who is really behind the demonstrations? For instance a chant no to Iranian involvement in Gazza. Which suggests they are controlled by Israel and western imperialist powers.

Now I am in favour of political reforms in Iran. Also I would like to see a socialist government in Iran which is opposed to western imperialism. But groups like the outlawed Iranian communist party do not seem to be much involved in the demonstrations.

So in conclusion I say yes fight for a socialist Iran. But to be perfectly blunt be suspicious of the demonstrations which are taking part in Iran at the present time. Best wishes for the future to all.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN 2018?

Well as my blog enters its 8th year. I will take a look and see what may happen in 2018. I feel that it may be a year of high energy and surprises. I will take a look at what may happen both internationally and here in the UK.

Firstly regarding North Korea I do not think on balance that there will be a military conflict between the USA and North Korea. Of course I could be wrong. If however America does attack North Korea it will almost certainly lead to an international conflict with Russia and China coming to the aid of North Korea.

Secondly Italy is having a general election in early 2018. Opinion polls suggest a big victory for the right wing anti EU Five Star led coalition. The new Italian government may hold a referendum on Italy,s membership of the euro currency. Personally I feel that it would be to Italy,s advantage to leave the Euro as it would have far greater control over its currency. However there is likely to conflict between the EU and the new Italian government.

Thirdly in relation to the EU. I suspect that the Merkel,Schulz and Macron plan for an EU superstate will fail due to public opposition in most EU countries. I also expect that conflict between the EU and some countries such as Hungary and Poland will increase in the coming year.

Fourthly regarding the UK I feel that brexit will quite rightly go ahead. Although it may be a softer brexit. Brexit will probably take place by March 2019 so the UK will be free of the EU straight jacket. I do not expect that there will be a general election in the UK this year. I suspect that the government may survive until 2020.

On a brighter note I feel that the violence in some middle east countries such as Iraq and Syria will decrease in the coming year, Thank god the Syrian civil war is nearly over and the Syrian Arab army have nearly defeated the jihadist fascists. Of course the western countries are to blame for most of the trouble in the middle east due to their military involvements in these countries.

Regarding the world economy I feel that there will be major economic crisis this year due to the massive financial debt. I suspect that this crisis which may be similar to 2008 and may take place in October 2018.

On a lighter note I predict that England will do much better in this world cup in Russia than in last one. They may reach the quarter final. In fact there may be a surprise winner. Portugal?

However in conclusion. I feel that 2018 will be year of surprise events and twists and turns in the world. It will most certainly be a high energy year.

God bless you all. Keep fighting for a more just and peaceful world in these very difficult times. See you all in 2019.

THE ENERGY OF CHRISTMAS 2017

In this blog I will look at the energy of christmas 2017. As I feel that the energy of each christmas period is different each year. I also feel that the energy of each christmas period gives an indication for the coming year ahead.

Now I must confess that unlike many period christmas is my favourite time of the year. There is I feel a magic about the month of December. A sense of anticipation and generosity.

Of course for those of us who are some sort of christians,christmas does have a major symbolic affect due to Jesus birth which offers hope for mankind.

In christmas 2016 I felt a sense of lets go out and enjoy ourselves come what may. However in christmas 2017 I detect a more reflective mood. The reason for this is I suspect many people expect that 2018 will be a year full of surprises. This is my point of view and which I will write about in my next blog on new years day 2018.

However despite the perhaps more uncertain times which may lie ahead. I would urge everbody to still tap into the magical 2017 christmas period. Enjoy yourself and also try and enjoy yourselves on new years eve.

Lets try and carry the christmas spirit over into 2018 and and make the world a more just and peaceful place.

God bless you all.

THE POLITICAL DEGRADATION OF THE PARTY OF THE EUROPEAN LEFT.

In this latest blog I will analyse the political degradation of the political party,s of the European Left. Such as Syriza Greece, Podemos Spain and the Socialist party Netherlands.

I will explain how these partys,s which a few years ago tried to position themselves to the left of the party,s of the socialist international such as the SPD Germany, Socialist party France and Spain etc are now no different from these party,s. As both accept neo liberalism, privatization and the European Union dictatorship.

The political party,s of the European Left largely came to the fore as a response to the rightward shift of the party,s of the socialist international. These partys,s as I have already mentioned accept neo liberalism privatization and the EU dictatorship. Of course these party,s have suffered in electoral terms. For instance the Netherlands Labour party winning only 5.9%
of the vote in the recent election. They used to obtain over 30% of the vote.

Tragically however the party,s of the European Left have quickly turned out to be no different from the party,s of the socialist international. The obvious example being the disgusting Syriza government in Greece led by the spineless Tsipras, who has gone along with the EU dictatorship privatization and austerity programme. Pablo Iglesias the leader of the Spanish party Podemos defended the Syriza sell out of September 2015.

Since the Syriza sell out of September 2015 the party of the European Left have lost any credibility that it had. This is best summed up by a recent statement by Harry Van Bommel the former foreign affairs spokes person of the Netherlands Socialist party that his party is prepared to go into a coalition government with centre right party,s.

Of course we must analyse why the party,s of the European Left have degenerated politically. Basically there are a few reasons for this.

Firstly there political activists tend to come from well off comfortable off backgrounds with no base in the working class. Thus they have no inner feeling to fight for the working class. They would rather defend their comfortable political careers and at the same time sell out the interests of the working class.

Secondly they have accepted like most of post modernist left the fake internationalism of the fascist European Union. They are prepared to adopt neo liberalism and privatization to keep the Euro currency and the EU dictatorship on the road.

Of course the key question is what can be done to counter the party of the European Left disaster. What needs to be done in my opinion is to build an anti EU/ anti globalist left. Which campaigns for their countries to leave the fascist EU and support socialist policies. The party that I am a member of the Socialist Labour party supports such policies.

In conclusion I would urge you to read the following two books. Larry Elliot book Europe didn,t work and Takis Fotopoulos book The new world order in action.

Best wishes to all for the future.

THE RELEVANCE OF ECKHART TOLLE

Now there is only one major thinker who I can honestly say has helped me in my personal life and that person is Eckhart Tolle. I would strongly urge all people reading this blog to read his two major works The Power of Now and a New Earth.

His main thesis is that our thoughts are not who we really are they are our ego based form built on our emotions of everyday life. They are not our real being which is our presence and consciousness, which is separate from our egoistical thoughts.

Eckhart states that people cannot just get rid of their ego. You cannot just say I have got rid of my ego and negativity and then become conscious as this would just be another ego thought form.

What you should do is be aware of your ego and negative thought form and observe them like watching a play. Your ego will disolve in its own time when you are aware of it. Personally I find Eckharts view on the ego that it is not who we really are quite comforting.

He also states that we should try and not think of the past or the future. Instead we should just concentrate on the exact present moment. In Eckhart,s wise opinion it is only the present moment that counts.

So I say just try and still yourself in the exact present moment that you are in it is all that really counts. Also just be aware of and observe your ego and negative thoughts. Let them just pass through you as they are not who you really are. Who you really are is your still being of conscious presence below your thoughts.

So in conclusion I particularly urge people to read Eckhart Tolle,s book The New Earth. I read ten pages of this book every day.

Best wishes to all for the future. God bless you all.

AN ANALYSIS OF THE GERMAN GENERAL ELECTION RESULT.

The German general election result of 24/9/17 was without doubt very interesting with the AFD winning seats in the German parliament for the first time. The result of the election raise a number of issues.

Firstly the 8% drop in support for the CDU/CSU party of Angela Merkel. From 41% to just under 33%. This is a very welcome development. Merkel is your typical EU corporate globalist trying to destroy countries national democracies. Backing America,s disastrous imperialist wars in the middle east. Also backing fully the EU technocratic dictatorships policies of neo liberalism and privatization.

Her coalition partners the Social Democratic party had their worse result in an all German election since the winter of 1932. Winning just 20.7% of the vote. A poor performance which was richly deserved.

Martin Schulz the SPD candidate for chancellor is your typical Eurocrat. Being the past chairperson of the European Union parliament. The SPD have been in coalition with the CSU/CSU for the last four years. Supporting neo liberalism and privatization. The future to be blunt looks quite grim for the SPD.

The neo liberal pro war German Green party vote was about the same as the last election 9%. So was the Left party who I personally would have voted for. Alas the Left party have a mistaken pro EU viewpoint. Being pro EU army and pro EU intergration. This is a major mistake they should be campaigning for Germany to leave the Eurozone and should put more emphasis on public ownership.

The pro business Free Democratic party returned to the parliament winning just over 10% of the vote. They are now likely to form a coalition government with CDU/CSU and the Green party.

Of course the main talking point of the election was Alternative for Germany winning just under 13% of the vote. There have been some hysterical newspaper headlines such as ‘Nazis’ elected to German parliament. Of course the AFD are not a Nazi party being the equivalent of UKIP in Britain. They correctly call for Germany to leave the Eurozone. Also they appear to oppose Germany being a vassal state of the United States of America.

However what Germany really needs is an anti globalist anti EU left movement. That is also anti NATO and supports public ownership.

The Left party perhaps could adopt these policies. It should drop its pro EU intergration stance. If it does not then I suspect that support for the AFD will continue to grow.

In conclusion these are interesting times indeed. Try and keep fighting for peace justice and social equality.

God bless you all.
