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.
Britain 2016. My sunday afternoon rant….
What is wrong with the British nation? I think I have an answer. Worryingly it may be too late to do anything about it, as we have already given away our children’s heritage by being too liberal when allowing in migrants to our country.
Our laws developed from Magna carta of which there was originally 63 clauses, but now only has only three of the original clauses that are still law today. Based upon these clauses we must hold onto our right to reject the wishes of migrants to have Islamic sharia or Islamic law in this great country and for that matter any other ideology.
we also have to defend the three remaining law clauses against the E.U. parliament.
1. Clause 1: The liberties of the English Church
“First, that we have granted to God, and by this present charter have confirmed for us and our heirs in perpetuity, that the English Church shall be free, and shall have its rights undiminished, and its liberties unimpaired.
“That we wish this so to be observed, appears from the fact that of our own free will, before the outbreak of the present dispute between us and our barons, we granted and confirmed by charter the freedom of the Church’s elections – a right reckoned to be of the greatest necessity and importance to it – and caused this to be confirmed by Pope Innocent III. This freedom we shall observe ourselves, and desire to be observed in good faith by our heirs in perpetuity.
“To all free men of our Kingdom we have also granted, for us and our heirs for ever, all the liberties written out below, to have and to keep for them and their heirs, of us and our heirs.”
2. Clause 13: The privileges of the City of London
“The city of London shall enjoy all its ancient liberties and free customs, both by land and by water. We also will and grant that all other cities, boroughs, towns, and ports shall enjoy all their liberties and free customs.”
3. Clauses 39 & 40: The right to trial by jury
“No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgement of his equals or by the law of the land.
“To no one will we sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice. No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled . nor will we proceed with force against him . except by the lawful judgement of his equals or by the law of the land. ”
I do not profess to being religious, I think you have to make your own mind up about that and I have chosen not to take that route but I do firmly belive in the law system that has served our nation for so long. Should some visitor or migrant arrive in our fair land then they should first and foremost submit to our laws.
If we are good enough to give them shelter, education, work and health care then they should pledge allegiance to our sovereignty and respect our laws and customs without any other option other than to become a passive neutral guest in our country without voting rights or benefits from our system if they do not agree. They should have to be self-sufficient in other words.
We appear to have an abundance of second & third generation migrant activists within the education sector’s who are trying hard to influence our young. The unacceptable part of this is that activists are the darlings of the British media, watch any BBC political broadcast and you will see the same face’s time and time again in what should be an unbiased audience. These people are plants as was Asma Butt, from Aberdeen during the BBC debate on the EU on Thursday night. Asma thought her family built this country poor disillusioned girl, but do not be under any illusion that the BBC is unbiased because they are certainly not.
What makes me laugh in all of this is that the our young who are influenced by these people say that our old laws are out dated, the laws of their influencers are just as old but more barbaric, they have no respect for women or children and they would prevent the females living under such laws from being educated. hang on to that thought for a moment…. it may not be a bad thing if we don’t get anymore like Asma Butt taking up valuable airtime.
Voters aged 18-to-29 took part in the BBC debate Last night 26/5/16
I listened with concern to the debate last night in which the future key holders of Britain (our young) discussed the argument of whether it is better to remain or Vote leave the EU.
I carried on listening to BBC radio 5 after the main debate had finished and it is clear that some of our young people have got a long way to go to grow up, one young caller in particular aged only sixteen by the name of Lauren who is studying politics at A level who was not particularly articulate. Lauren spoke in of the fact that young people are politically engaged, they may be but the don’t generally vote!
Lauren said when talking about her generation that “like we are the first people to grow up in this global world”, politics could well be the best place for her because she clearly has not got a clue about where we are in the world. I despair at these youngsters. Our education system needs to be revamped, we need to make it more difficult to get into universities and colleges and prioritize grants to the sciences including medicine and engineering. Students who want to study the art’s, media, politics etc should be self funding.
If they want to study soft subjects then they should earn to learn much like the American system, this would give them an incentive to take up jobs which low skilled migrants are taking up currently.
Some of the invited audience last night where obviously cherry picked by the BBC such as Asma Butt, she has previously been involved with Alex Salmond on the campagne trail.
The biggest issue in the lives of the young people today is will our mobile roaming charges increase if we leave the EU and of course we have to think about our foreign holidays and how are we going to help the Calais migrants if we come out of Europe because after all Europe are our partners. well I am sorry its total bollocks. These ungrateful idiots need to think about the two lost generations who gave up there lives during the 1st and 2nd world wars for them to have the freedom and education opportunities that they have today, they should also look to the future of their children ahead of them.
They have no right giving up what was so hard-fought for, how disingenuous can the so-called educated young be by forgetting that there was over 17 million deaths from the first world war & over 60 million from the second world war who were sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy now.
I am not saying that all our young generation are selfish but in my opinion they are short-sighted, they need a life lesson so to speak. years ago if you went to university it was a hard-earned privilege, todays young think it is a god given right not to go straight to the working environment. Our country has been formed by the blood, sweat & tears of the people who had no option but to work to support their familes, they are the backbone of the nation and their voice needs to be heard as much as any student in a BBC debate.
