Hi All, Today it has been reported by Astronomers have for the first time discovered water in the atmosphere of a planet orbiting within the habitable zone of a distant star AND it only takes 111 light years (distance the speed of light (180,000 MI/S) travels in a year times 111) to get there. I have always been amazed that people STILL think we are alone in the Universe (YES I do blame the religious lot for it). We STILL today use their idiotic jargon, sunrise, sunset. The Sun does NOT rise or set and we are NOT the center of the universe no matter what ANY church tells you.

In our milky way alone there are approximately 100 thousand million stars. Outside that, there are millions upon millions of other galaxies also! It is mathamatically impossible for there NOT to be other life in the cosmos. The imagination could run wild with the road that other species have taken to evolve. Could you imagine if America eventually went beyond our universe and found a habitable planet only to find a six foot seven black man greet them with "Yo Nigga, how's it hangin?" or England finding the elusive heaven, only for God to say "Hou's it gaun?" in a Scots accent The permutations are endless, but fun.

I doubt humankind will be around long enough to explore the cosmos with the lunitics we have in power today. One can always hope though. STILL, that is the future. Remember if you need a cup of water you can always pop along to K2-18b and borrrow some.

Hi All, I see the Orange blimp (trump) is at it again with his right wing Fascist and racist comments. The Trump administration will not be providing temporary protected status to people who fled the wrath of Hurricane Dorian. "Look, the Bahamas had some tremendous problems with people going to the Bahamas that weren't supposed to be there. I don't want to allow people that weren't supposed to be in the Bahamas to come in to the United States, including some very bad people and some very bad gang members and some very, very bad drug dealers," Trump said. This is the way the citezens of the Bahamas are treated after the worst Hurricane in their history. He has been using the same rhetoric since before he was President concerning South and Central American immigrants wanting a new life in America. The man really has no class. (Along with his other failings, pathological liar, NO integrity, NO moral compass, NO dignity and a draft dodging coward. I won't even mention his payments to you know who).

Other than immigrant refugee's I have never been able to understand why ANYONE with an IQ higher than that of a lettuce would WANT to live in America. It is the world leader in Mass School Shootings. It is the only country in the Western world wher CHILDREN have to pass through an X-Ray machine just to get to CLASS. (think about that sentence). America is the only Country in the Western world where 7,6 MILLION of its workforse HAVE to work at least two jobs just to feed their family's. It is a place where you can be fired for no other reason than the boss does not like you. In 2017 almost 40,000 Americans were killed by guns. This does not include those who were murdered by other means. In the UK in the same period there were 709 murders a BIG Difference. People will say that their population is far bigger than ours, this is true. Britains population is roughly 65 Million. Americas Population roughly 329 milillion which is about 5 times our population.Their murder rate is 56 times higher than ours. But the biggest reason for not wanting to go to America is the idiot who now is their President.

I will never understand why British people always want to emulate or copy America. It is a very sick society with a bible belt who think that God is American and will endorse everything the idiot Trump says. Yet America has caused more pain to more people throughout the world then almost any other Country over the last seventy years and STILL we refer to it as the leader of the 'Free World" whatever that is supposed to mean. Ask a child in Palestine or Chile or Yemen or  Diego Garcia (Oh sorry you cannot. There are NO children there since Britain kicked them out in 1973 to build a UK/US military base) what they think of the "leader of the free world" and see what THEY say.  But you get the picture.


Now we have this sickness (new wave of fascism) coming to Europe via Trump. IT NEEDS TO BE STOPPED.

Hi All, I would just like to make a comment concerning Yellowhammer. These are some of the findings in the report:


 a "decrease" in certain types of fresh food and "shorter supply" of key ingredients.
   
price rises for food and fuel, which would "disproportionately" affect those with low incomes.
   
"disruption lasting up to six months" potentially affecting medicines and medical supplies.
   
protests and counter-protests across the UK.
   
lorries waiting for more than two days to cross the English Channel.


If you look at line two (which I have printed in bold) This is what Johnson and his rabble refer to as a 'Bump in the road". How can anyone want to back something that will affect the poor of this country? Johnson, Like his mentor Trump, have not one ounce of SINCERE humanity between them. Fear not THEIR time is not so far away. (when they will be deposited in the dustbin of History, where they undoubtedly belong).

Hi All, I see that Tim Martin, that GREAT brexiteer who has his Wetherspoon pub chain carpets made by Axminster carpets, has his first casualty of Brexit. Axminster is prepering to lay off workers because of the uncertanty of Brexit. Way you go Tim, nice one.

To all those being laid off just remember this. You now become founder members of Johnson's "Bumps in the road" club. Hold your heads high!!!!!

Hi All, I am amazed at the amout of 'Fake news' In Newspapers today. Most of it comes from our "honourable members" Of Parliament, and as usual, the other right wing relatives across the pond.

First: Johnson today:
Quote
"This is a new government with a very exciting agenda, to make our streets safer.

"It's very important we bring violent crime down, we need to invest in our NHS, we need to level up education funding across the country, we need to invest in the infrastructure that's going to take this country forward for decades.

"And we need to deal with the cost of living, moving to a high wage, high productivity economy, which is what I think this country needs to be.

"To do that we need new legislation, we've got to be bringing forward new and important bills, and that's why we are going to have a Queen's Speech and we are going to do it on 14 October."

The only thing wrong with these quotes are it's OMISSIONS!! Johnson fails to say that BECAUSE of him and his right wing Government we would have NO NEED to make our streets safer (21,700 police lost in the last ten years due to Tory fund cutting). Having to invest in the NHS (BECAUSE of the savage Tory cuts over the last ten years).  As to his remark concerning "moving to a high wage" He is talking about MANAGEMENT and people earning MORE than £50,000 a year. The average British yearly salary is around £29,500. Johnson is looking to make Britain a low tax, free port, hedge fund paradise (Singapore style) that will benefit all his rich friends throughout the world. HOW does this help the average working class man? IT DOES NOT.

If Johnson expects working class people to believe ANY of his right wing rhetoric he is sadly mistaken.


Second: Arlene Foster (She of the 'Ash for Cash' debacle) said the following this morning
Quote
"UK must leave as one nation. We are keen to see a sensible deal but not one that divides the internal market of the UK. We will not support any arrangements that create a barrier to East West trade. Anonymous sources lead to nonsense stories
After a story was published in a daily paper saying that the DUP (who's motto is "we are easily bribed") was changing its stance on the Irish backstop. Saying that you believe ANYTHING Foster says is like saying you believe Shakespears Richard the Third is historically accurate. Only a Moron would say yes.


Lastly:
Quote
Republicans aired a shocking new attack ad branding Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 'the face of socialism' and showing her face burning during Thursday night.It displayed a photo of AOC's face being burned ahead of images of skulls from the 1970s Khmer Rouge genocide in Cambodia, when communist leader Pol Pot's regime claimed the lives of an estimated two million people.
The Republicans who released this ad are so STUPID and ILL INFORMED that it beggers belief. It was BECAUSE of the REPUBLICAN party's secret  Vicious bombings of Cambodia (started by Nixon and Kissinger the war crime twins) that enabled Pol Pot to rise to power in Cambodia and carry out his Genocide. (with a great deal of help from the SAS and Margeret Thacher. But your not supposed to know that bit).

SO there you have it. Three pieces of REALLY 'fake News' that people take at face value. No wonder people do not trust Politicians today and they are held in very low esteem. Is it Just coincidence that most of the one's who lie today are mostly RIGHT WING. Or maybe that is just my perception.

Hi All, We hear today the following:

Quote
The Trump administration is finalizing plans to allow oil and gas drilling in a portion of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge that has been protected for decades.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will offer leases on essentially the entire 1.6m-acre coastal plain, which includes places where threatened polar bears have dens and porcupine caribou visit for calving. Drilling operations are expected to be problematic for Indigenous populations, many of which rely on subsistence hunting and fishing.

It is NO surprise that Trump would do this as some of his biggest donors are from the oil and gas industry and this is the reason that they helped to put him in the White house. The man has no conscience when it comes to helping his buddies to destroy the land in the name of profits. I have NO DOUBT that his two Mini Me's (Johnson and Farage) will do exactly the same thing to Britain when it comes time talk 'trade' with Trump. Sell us down the river for to make profits for their big donors in the UK. You mention the NHS in America and the big insurance and pharmaceutical companies start to salivate with the thoght of the vast profits they would make here. WE need to keep them OUT.

Hi All, As an addendum to my last post Here is more proof of American greed:

Quote
The US and Brazil have agreed to promote private-sector development in the Amazon, during a meeting in Washington on Friday. Brazil's foreign minister said opening the rainforest to economic development was the only way to protect it. 


This is the same as a hunter saying the only way to protect Elephants is to shoot them.  These people NEED to be gone, VERY SOON.


Trump is not satisfied with destroying the Arctic. He now wants the Amazon as well. Is there ANYTHING this man will NOT do to turn a profit for his cronies? Bolsonara and Trump really are two of a kind. Right wing nutters intent on destroying the Environment for money. Johnson our idiot Prime Minister cannot wait to rush into a deal with these lunatics. While leaving the sane people (The EU) behind

Hi All, The Tory Government has been very 'generous' (Me being facetious) with their £95m fund in a bid to revive 69 high streets across England. In the North West it is an amount of £18.7 Million split between 14 towns (Stalybridge being one of them) which works out to £1,3 Million per town. Since 2010 the North West has lost £3,2 BILLION in public funds. (The South East and South West, meanwhile, has seen a £3.2bn RISE in public funds in the same period). This gives you an idea of how the TORY PARTY rate the North of England. To vote for a party that continue's to give less money to the North while giving MORE money to the south is something I find very strange. Since the days of Margeret (The beast) Thatcher anything north of the trent has not shown up on their radar, except to take money away.

With the Government in power now (for the moment) it will only get worse. IF ever Johnson get his way concerning his dream of the UK being a low tax, hedge fund paradise, which area would suffer the most? certainly nowhere in the South of the Country. It would all be here, in the North. In the North West we have 49 labour MP's and 18 Tory MP's. In the combined South East and South West region we have 105 Tory MP's and 15 Labour MP's. I think that tells its own story.


Anyone living in the North would wish for a Labour/LibDem/SNP/Green Party/Independent Coalition Government that represents most of the people in the country and not just those who live in the South. Hopefully this will happen very soon.



Just a thought......

PS. As an afterthought Johnson is the idiot that wants to spend £15 BILLION on a bridge between Scotland and Northern island. (This is what is called a vanity project) The £15 BILLION would turn into £45 BILLION and his big corporate buddies would be making BILLIONS from it. HS2 is a PERFECT example of how this buddie system works. I wonder how many urgently needed social housing projects you could build for £15 BILLION?

Extracts from today’s Daily Mail:-

‘Robert Mugabe's burial is delayed for a MONTH while a special mausoleum is built’

‘The move to have him buried in Harare marks a victory for Mnangagwa, who insisted he deserved a place at the shrine. ‘’

‘More than 10 African leaders and several former presidents spoke in praise of Mr Mugabe at the service in the Chinese-built stadium, which attracted a crowd filling about 30% of its 60,000 capacity.’


For the second time in recent weeks, I am lost for words - but 70% of the population had their heads screwed on.

Hi All, Hi Son of Nomad,

Quote

I cannot understand why? the first time! The second Time I am 100% sure you are correct. Most of those at the stadium would be people who actually agreed with him plus the hangers on and people from his own area of birth. The leaders of others countries would hav been there as members of SADC and those who found him to be a hero (there are still many). MOST Zimbabweans hated him and therefore would not have attended. You must also take into consideration that a great many people in Africa saw Mugabe as a fighter against the rule of White people.

If you travel round Africa From Tobruk in the North, to lagos in the West, to Mombasa in the East, to Lumbumbashi in the centre and Cape Town in the South, Once the people get to know you they will tell you the truth, They have a great dislike of Europeans (White people) for obvious historical reasons. Having said that they are still great people and the majority can be trusted to treat you with respect. Alas, a great many still think like Mugabe.

Hi All This is how a two faced Government works:

Quote
UK foreign affairs minister Andrew Murrison said the strike was "totally unacceptable" and that the "Houthis must stop undermining Saudi Arabia's security by threatening civilian areas and commercial infrastructure".

THIS from a Government  Minister who's Government is supplying Saudi Arabia with Millions of pounds worth of Armaments that are being used to slaughter thousands of Yemeni civilians. What he should be saying is "SAUDI ARABIA, STOP MURDERING CIVILIANS". But he will not for the same reason America will not....MONEY. We allow a man to be murdered in a safe place (an embassy) and do NOTHING to bring the country who is to blame to justice because we make a great deal of money from them.

This Tory Government is a disgusting collection of right wing morons who would turn their backs on doing the RIGHT THING all for the sake of a Saudi contract. DISGUSTING. (these same people will be in church tomorrow praying to their respective God's with no idea of the hypocrisy that they show is anything but normal)

Hi All, I see Snickers is going back to its original name of Marathon. Maybe Johnson's Tory cabinet could go back to their original name: The National Socialist Party.

Hi All, In tomorrow's Sunday Telegraph There is an article saying that Trump has been warned that Corbyn would pass on US intelligence to Russia if he was Prime Minister and the UK will cease to become a reliable partner. THIS is the kind of RUBBISH coming out of the USA to bolster Johnson's right wing party before a general election. It should be condemned in the strongest possible terms by Boris Johnson and ALL in Parliament as a direct threat to our national interest in fair and open elections. WE are NOT (yet) run by the White House. All though if Johnson and the other worm Farage get their way, we soon will be.

Hi All, Today Secretary of state Mike Pompeo (yes I will spend $30,000 at a Trump hotel because I am a TOADY) is blaming Iran (there's a suprise) for the attack on Saudi Arabia. Yesterday it was the Minister Andew Murrison blaming the Iranian backed Houthis for attacking them. Last week Netanyahu visited Johnson along with Pence. Yesterday Trump issued a letter saying that Israel and America must have a mutual defence treaty. (just before the Israeli elections).  All this is heading for a war with Iran which is being driven by Saudi Arabia and Israel. Because we have a right wing Idiot and a Trump clone, running the British Government, Johnson (who is secretly the Hulk) The chance of Britain being dragged into this war is getting higher and higher.

When you have people of the calibre of Trump, Netanyahu, Johnson and Mohammid bin Salman (or MBS to his friends that live long enough) all being buddie buddie with each other then you KNOW the world is heading in the wrong direction. These four have two things in common which stand out. Each believes in brute Force to achieve their aims. And Each is a PROVEN LIAR. These four really are the four horsemen of the apocolypse. (If you are a bible type). Conquest or (Pestilence), War, Famine and death. These four lunatics have caused all that the horsemen represent between them on numerous occasions. It is time for the people who live under this threat to VOTE OUT these four lunatics BEFORE there is a world war.
