Aggression is born from anxiety and fear. We are witnessing some very unpleasant activities in the public domain in this immediate post Brexit period, it appears to be in two main area’s, one is the resentment by the disappointed youth and the other is by the more extreme right-wing elements of the British public.
Looking at the disappointed youth, unfortunately for them they have grown up in a system that has let them down. Those of us that grew up in that post second world war pre-common market period will remember that you had a much harder task to earn your way to a better education. In the 1960’s it was also means tested as just over one in 10 (12%) went to university. There were no student loans, fees were paid in full by local education authorities and there was a means-tested annual grant up of to £340 to cover living costs. On to the 1970’s, one in seven 18-year-olds were in higher education in 1972. That figure fell back to one in eight by the end of the decade as university funding was cut and vice-chancellors refused to squeeze the amount spent on each student. Many 16-year-olds opted not to go into the sixth form because there was no guarantee that after two years of A-levels a place could be found for them at university. The grant for students increased from £380 to £1,430 in 1980.
Quite simply it was a hard-earned privilege to go to university in those years unless your family had money you did not go to university, you had to face the facts that you had to go to work and earn your living, there was no god given right to further education, gap years, foreign travel etc. you were grateful for what you could get that’s a fact. Todays youth has had everything given to them on a plate, successive governments have made it easier to get them into further education even if the grades required have not met the standard, this has been done to manipulate the unemployment figures, the number of soft subject courses has grown to facilitate this policy.
So now we have more extreme right-wing elements of the British public, People will quite rightly be concerned when they see massive changes to society and they feel that they are being ignored by the government. The extreme right-wing supporters will seize this and try to use it for their own agenda, the people have spoken and are concerned about immigration so it is now time for the government to act swiftly to address this issue, they must give the people what they want which is more control over immigration. It will be in no-ones interest to let the right-wing grasp the nettle.
In the cold light of day there are some hard facts we must understand, the younger elements of society need to grow up quickly, work hard for what they get, respect democracy and family and most importantly listen to those that have gone before you and have prevented you having to suffer the hardships of their past. Your political views should not be swayed by the educational system bureaucrats, you need to get out in the real world and earn a living before you are qualified to form an opinion.
I don’t blame people for being resentful of migrants, it’s is our governments fault for not listening to the electorate, we are sick of being called racist’s & bigots, we could not get our voice heard but we have now had our day and the government had better listen, Labour and the Conservative party should be very worried as when we come to the next general election they will in all probability be a spent force. I cannot see the Lib-Dems being a threat but UKIP well that’s another story, Nigel Farage has proven true to his word as this man has done more to get the country to this point than anyone else and people will remember that, UKIP will grow and be a major party.
So the government need to understand that if you poke the hornet’s nest you will get stung, hornets are often considered pests much like the establishment have concidered the electorate, but be warned they will aggressively guard their homes and communities when threatened! Don’t blame the Britsh public for protecting there homeland.
it’s been the aim of the West to stop the spread of communism for decades, wars have been fought over it, families have been separated by it both in Europe, the Far East and elsewhere around the world. The Americans have a deep mistrust of the communist yet the American president is suggesting that Britain remains in the European Union which is as close to a communist state as you can get.
It cannot be denied that there are similarities between the ever-expanding EU and the ideology of the old Soviet Union perhaps Brussels is trying to revive the old idea of Eurocommunism, it’s well understood that sovereignty disappears under communism, we all know now what happened to the Russian royal family during the early part of the nineteenth century. We would like to think that kind of thing would not happen in this day and age, but the European Union is not a supporter of Sovereignty and history has a habit of repeating itself.
I suspect the vast majority of British subjects are in favour of British Sovereign rule, sovereignty is understood in jurisprudence as the full right and power of a governing body to govern itself without any interference from outside sources or bodies. This should be our primary concern as our national identity and British society has been founded and nurtured of these principles.
I admit that I am not a royalist by any stretch of the imagination but I would sooner be a royal subject than a state subject without freedom of speech and thought. The freedom to elect our government is our right and it should remain so. Eventually if we stay within the European union that right will be removed, this process has already begun in Brussels with the unelected Jean-Claude Juncker at the head of the European Commission along with a further a further 27 unelected commissioners.
We cannot be complacent about the European Union, if we care about our families it is our duty to learn from past history. you only have to look at the misery and suffering that came about due to communist regimes around the world. Don’t let Britain fall into that trap remember you owe it to your forefathers for giving you the freedoms you have now and to your progeny to ensure they remain free to live in a democracy not a version of a communist state.

Government climb down over forced academies plan in England.
Today we hear of yet another U-turn by the conservative government, but of course it is not really a U-turn. Today on 5 live Eric Pickles said ‘this is not a u turn’ in reference to the climb-down.
The government is once again running scared of industrial action by teachers & head teachers and rightly so, give these people the funding and the tools to do their job instead of asking for more than they can give with the education cuts. This is just another example of their poorly made decisions, how can the Education Secretary Nicky Morgan save face on this one?
A survey in January of nearly 900 mainly secondary headteacher’s and senior leaders by the Association of School and College Leaders confirms that more than 38% of those who completed the survey made redundancies in the previous 12 months, with even more staff losses hidden by the under-the-radar non-replacement of teaching (70%) and support roles (80%).
The country is sick and tired of the nanny state, the meddling by ill-informed officials taking orders from Brussels. Todays local election results have shown that there is a storm brewing. Beware Mr Cameron I think it maybe that perfect storm that sinks you and your government. Every one of your unpopular decisions of which there are many diminishes your credibility and your friends in Brussels will not be able to bail you out or throw you a life line.
June 23rd is looking more likely to be your judgment day. Better get practicing for that new job with the brush and shovel in the stable, I’m sure there will be a great big steaming mound of the brown stuff left now the horse has bolted!!
