Politics, Governance, Corbyn and Bullying

There's a difference between Politics (which is the strategies deployed to gain, retain, enhance and project Power) and Governance (the administration of shared resources for the equal benefit of all the people).

We need to remove politics, which is based on hierarchies of violence, aka bullying, from ALL systems of Governance, which are more correctly based on equity - the value and meaning of what we share.

Corbyn.

The mainstream narrative attacks the person and ignores or trivialises the policies which he is standing for, which are largely informed by the party membership and the evidence.

What other behaviour does one need to make a behavioural diagnosis on institutional Power occupied by bullies?

Bullies you say?

Just to re-iterate : there's a difference between Politics (which is the strategies deployed to gain, retain, enhance and project Power) and Governance (the administration of shared resources for the equal benefit of all the people).

We need to remove politics, which is based on hierarchies of violence, aka bullying from ALL systems of Governance, which are more correctly based on equity.

Corbyn:

He stands as a representative of a grass roots who have decided that enough is enough, we pay their wages, we decide policy, we want oversight of implementation and we want the shared responsibilities of power across the grass roots.

He stands for a GENUINE democratic process of engagement, where power rests in the people, not an executive.

It was Tony Blair's strategy to strengthen the executive, which enabled him to send the State to war, illegally, amorally.

It is the NeoLiberal's within Labour who are protecting the power establishment by attacking Corbyn.

The old 19th century concept of leadership as some person in Authority convincing the electorate to vote along certain lines using grooming tactics is out of date.

In essence, you are the leaders, you are being asked to choose who will represent your insight, your concern, your creativity and intelligence across all levels of Governance.

The Power Inquiry

A constituency of more than two million people active in the Community Voluntary Sector looked at how power can be safely devolved to the grass roots.

In effect the Power Inquiry was engaged in undermining the ability of the power establishment any power establishment - to dominate Governance and deploy the resources of the State as political weapons with which that establishment retains, maintains, enhances and projects it's power over the people.

Which is why David Cameron, Ed Milliband and others after praising it at the 2006 Conference, suggested only 2 days later that it was 'impractical'.

As if the millions of people serving vulnerable people were ill placed to discuss Governance, a key element of their work - from matters of finance to developing evidence based services, from oversight to deliberation, from representing their clients to lobbying for more support and understanding.... that's a LOT of self Governance skill-sets in action, and the bullies declared it is 'impractical'?

And then the Government's plans to destabilise the CVS under the 'Big Societu' label were set into motion, by a Labour Government, and continued by a Tory/Lib Dem and now a Tory Government..

Justice

There is no justice without empathy, no justice without prevention, no justice without honesty, no justice without accountability.

As I wrote earlier:

There's a difference between Politics (which is the strategies deployed to gain, retain, enhance and project Power) and Governance (the administration of shared resources for the equal benefit of all the people).

We need to remove politics, which is based on hierarchies of violence, aka bullying, from ALL systems of Governance, which are more correctly based on equity - the value and meaning of what we share.

Theresa May, Angela Eagle, Jeremy Corbyn and War Crimes.

1. The Laws prohibiting war were then as they are now. Nothing has changed.

2. The senior Lawyer at the Foreign Office, Elizabeth Wilmshurst quit her role just before the war.

She had been at the Foreign Office since 1974.

She stood down from a career that spanned 30 years.

She was 100% clear that the invasion was a War of Aggression, the supreme war crime, in that it contains all other war crimes.

Her letter of resignation made this clear.

"I cannot in conscience go along with advice - within the Office or to the public or Parliament - which asserts the legitimacy of military action without such a resolution, particularly since an unlawful use of force on such a scale amounts to the crime of aggression; nor can I agree with such action in circumstances which are so detrimental to the international order and the rule of law. "


ALL Cabinet level politicians had access to that advice.

http://www.news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/politics/4377605.stm

Claire Short, Robin Cook also resigned. Why?

3. ALL MP's had then, as they have now, a duty of care and of due diligence that is inherent in their roles as MP's, as representatives of their constituencies.

Each and everyone of them had a duty to examine the Laws prohibiting war, and to understand them as they applied at the time.

Failure to do so, along with voting for the War, on such a matter where peoples lives (the troops they were sending, their families) were being put into harms way, and where the outcomes for Iraqi civilians were likely to be horrific, at the expense of the tax payer, was corporate negligence of the highest order, at the very minimum.

They all had plenty of time to exercise due diligence and honour their duty of care.

They chose not to.

Angela Eagle chose not to.

David Cameron chose not to.

Theresa May chose not to.

They are all culpable under the Law, for their inactions as much as their actions.

It is a matter of parliamentary and public record.

They were and are not alone; there are many people in positions of influence in the BBC, Media, Civil Service, Military and Police Command who participated in the rush to war, all of whom had the same duty of care, the same due diligence, given their positions in the system.

4. Jeremy Corbyn is 100% committed to upholding the Law, as is John McDonnell, and as are the vast majority of grass roots electorate.

This is not about personalities, it is about policies, outcomes, accountability and prevention.

We at the grass roots owe it to the dead and living of Iraq, Libya, Yemen and Syria to hold our Government to account for their many crimes, committed using our taxes, using monies borrowed with our future taxes as collateral......

That is the threat the Establishment want to neutralise.

And they will fail. They are failing.

5. Hold steady.

Stay strong.

Stand for justice, truth, honesty and a fair Society.

Bullying Behaviours, Corbyn, the grass roots, the media and The Establishment.

Does any of these behaviours ring a bell, with regards to Corbyn, EUref, the abuse on all sides, the behaviour of Media and Politicians in general??

Here are some recognisable bullying traits and tactics, designed to damage, isolate, discredit and eliminate the target:

#Bullies are adept at exploiting the trust and needs of individuals, organisations and groups, for personal gain.
 
#Bullies react to criticism with denial, retaliation, feigned victimhood.
 
The #Bully grooms bystanders, and the target, to believe the target deserves the treatment they are receiving and attempts to limit contact between others and their target.

Often the #Bully will use communications that exclude the target so that there is no opportunity for them to defend themselves and present their truth.
 
The #Bystanders see only the Dr Jekyll side of the bully, but only the target sees the Mr/Ms Hyde side; Dr Jekyll is sweet, manipulative and charming, Mr/Ms Hyde is evil; Mr/Ms Hyde is the real person, Dr Jekyll is an act.
 
#Bullies exert power and control by a combination of selectively withholding information and spreading lies and disinformation, therefore everyone has a distorted picture – of only what the bully wants them to see.
 
The #Target finds that in any response, everything they say and do is twisted, distorted and misrepresented.
 
#Bullies are adept at manipulating people’s perceptions with intent to engender a negative view of the target in the minds of others – this is achieved through undermining and discrediting, including the creation of doubts and suspicions and the sharing of lies.
 
#Bullies use other people to further the aim of discrediting their target, creating a false impression of consensus.
 
#Bullies poison the atmosphere and actively poison people’s minds against the target when close to being outwitted and exposed, the bully feigns victimhood and turns the focus on themselves as previously stated – another example of manipulating people through their emotions such as guilt, sympathy, feeling sorry for the bully.

Many #Bystanders are hoodwinked by the bully’s ruses for abdicating responsibility and evading accountability, they may say, for example: “that’s all in the past”, “let’s focus on the future” , “you need to make a fresh start”, and “forgive and forget”, “you’ve got to move on”, “sticks and stones” and so on.
 
#Bystanders often feel cognitive dissonance and usually minimise their discomfort by reasoning to avoid any responsibility, it usually goes this way because they themselves don’t want to become targets. They may say things like: “just ignore them”, “stand up to them” , “I’ve personally never had any problems with him/her”, “Oh I never get involved in personal differences” and so on. Even worse, they may imply that you did something wrong to “attract” the bullying.
 
The #Bully encourages and manipulates as many bystanders as possible to lie, act dishonorably and dishonestly, withhold information and spread lies and misinformation, the bully manipulates bystanders to punish the target for alleged infractions, so the bystanders also become instruments of harassment.
 
Some people gain gratification (a perverse feeling of satisfaction) from seeing others in distress and thus become complicit in the bullying and a few people think that #bullying is funny.

Look back over the campaigns, news articles, briefings and with all of the above in mind, examine the patterns and identify the people invovled.

Learn to spot these tactics, and learn how to thwart them.

It's long past the time we dealt with the Public School Boy ethic of Power in Governance and the Corporate world.

Politics is not Governance, Blame is not accountability, War never brings peace. Eagle does not fly.



Often folk make the error of conflating 'blame' and 'seeking accountability’.

Or we may equate punishment with justice.

Many equate politics with governance.

These are all quite different dynamics and it is useful to be able to distinguish between them.

Very, very pertinent, and very, very useful.

The Origins of a Foreign Policy to bomb the Iraq nation.

Oil is just one of  the mediums. Power is the issue. Psychology is the issue.

The Western Power Establishment are 100% opposed to the emergence of any independent, grass roots supported democratic Governance emerging in the Middle East because such Governments might choose to trade oil in alternative currencies and undermine the value of UK and US currencies.

Furthermore, the emergence of any Government that is truly responsive to the needs of the people is seen as an existential threat to the status quo. Rightly so.

They bully the strong, the weak they co-opt.

To that end they ignore the harms they are causing to real people.

They are emotionally blind to the truth of what the outcomes of their policy means in real human terms.

Watch this and you might get an insight into what is being done in the world of politics, and not being done in the world of Governance.

"Give me the child til age 7, and I will give you the man!"





Politics is quite separate from Governance.

I tend to make a distinction between Governance - the administration of a communities shared contributory resource (tax revenue) for the equal benefit if all citizens, and Politics, which is the strategic struggle to gain, retain, enhance and project Power over a people and protect it from any other contenders.

I think we need that distinction, and an understanding of how bullying operates and functions so that we can discern when that power play is usurping healthy Governance.

We need to be able to see when we are being deliberately triggered, misled, lied to, goaded and we need to be able to respond rather than react.

We are nowhere yet near a position of enough strength at the grass roots to fully support and protect a kinder, humane and evidence based Governance, which will face the strongest resistance from the Power Establishment. We are not there yet.


If you look at it, how much worse will your disappointment be if we elect a kinder Governance and we are unable to protect it from the Power Establishment?

Be realistic and honest.... if we can be triggered, then we are not yet ready for the shared responsibilities of power.


It's about exercising power rather than the attractions of greed.

Their violence requires great wealth to fund it. Their power is dependent upon the violence they can marshal, and upon their ability to indoctrinate their captive populations.

They use our cash, as consumers and as tax payers, to do all of this.

This is a long game we are playing out.

Hold the line, do not be too dismayed and stay engaged. Stay strong.

We pay their wages. Corporations pay their bonuses.

People who seek power over others get a hormonal cascade when they exercise that power - they are addicted to that exercise of power.

They also internalize their positions of power. It becomes personal for them.

"Le Etate C'est Moi!" or “I am the State!”

They seek to control Governance in order to ensure they can continue to accrue greater wealth, and maintain their status of power, and because Governance gives them the cover to abuse the people and get away with it. It is rigged.

Because they are bullies they  aim to inflict psychological injury more often than physical injury. Their main aim is to control, discredit, isolate and eliminate their target.

It's been like that for a while, it is NOT healthy human behaviour, it is not part of optimal human biological health, it is a pathology and it is institutionalised.

This blog on bullying and bystanders is recommended reading.

More healthy Governance, less political power struggles is all we are asking for. Is it really too much to ask for in the 21st Century?

A new Conservative Government.

Do not worry about who or what personality is appointed to what post; it makes very little difference to the realities we are facing.

The policies will be pretty much a continuation.

It makes little difference to the Syrians, the Libyans, the Iraqi's.

They are the faces of oppression, and that is all you really need to know.

Do not allow yourselves to be trolled, or enervated, or dismayed or hopeful etc by the successive announcements of who is getting what job.

Turn it all off, you can see it all complete tomorrow.

Take time out to nurture, to regain some strength, to feed your heart - cook, eat, make love, sing, write, sleep, dream and just be for one day, one evening, one night.

It will all be there tomorrow, and if you are rested, nurtured and relatively calm you will be a much better place to deal with it all.

You are not Syrian, Iraqi, Libya, Yemeni.... you are very, very fortunate to be born here, in the UK.

Use that good fortune, do not waste it.

Know who you are.

Remember who you are.

Step out of short term hope into certainty as to where your heart and mind is standing and where you are going.

Do not allow yourselves to be trolled by the mainstream media or dismayed by changes and struggles within Government, my British friends.

We are not facing anything like the depravity of Iraq, Libya, Syria.... we do have space to operate in.

Know what you are about. Stand on it. Develop your stamina. Stay the course.



War Crimes. The Law. A reality check.

1. The Laws prohibiting war were then as they are now. Nothing has changed.

2. The senior Lawyer at the Foreign Office, Elizabeth Wilmshurst quit her role in protest just before the war. She did what the sitting MP's all failed to do. She stood by the Law.

She had been at the FO since 1974. She was 100% clear that the invasion was a War of Aggression, the supreme war crime, in that it contains all other war crimes.

Her letter of resignation made this clear. ALL Cabinet level politicians had access to that advice.

"I cannot in conscience go along with advice - within the Office or to the public or Parliament - which asserts the legitimacy of military action without such a resolution, particularly since an unlawful use of force on such a scale amounts to the crime of aggression; nor can I agree with such action in circumstances which are so detrimental to the international order and the rule of law."

Elizabeth was the leading legal expert at the Foreign Office at that time.

Justice in a Nurturant Society



Justice in a Nurturant Society

Justice demands that Blair and all who were party to the planning and execution of the Iraq War be made to account before the Law for their actions.

War Crimes investigations must be immediately initiated, and they must cover the entire process and institutional behaviours associated with the push towards war.





Justice demands that Ian Duncan Smith, the DWP, and all who are party to the promotion of the false and odious 'Austerity' policy that has harmed the most vulnerable people of the UK be made to account for their actions before the Law, not least Human Rights Law in the case of the disabled and other vulnerable people in our country.

The UN case must be pursued with all vigour. Human rights must prevail  over Government policy. Individuals must be held to account, in or out of Government.

Justice demands that the wounds of both Iraqi working class and British working class are dressed, and allowed to heal, and that they receive the support, respect and gratitude they deserve for the work they do. Justice demands that working class people show solidarity locally, nationally and internationally.

We must expose and de-construct the media tactics of Government, Parties and Corporations, so that all who voted, on both sides, in the EUref recognise how we have been manipulated, spun and lied to, which was all done so that Corporations maintain their power to influence and direct Governance, and thus profit from that influence at the expense of ordinary people. A correct diagnosis must prevail, in order for a positive prognosis.

Justice demands that the lie of 'Austerity' be over turned, that employers pay fair wages to UK Citizen and Immigrant alike, so that the Tax Credit's scam as a prop to the Corporate Employers can be adjusted to meet the needs of the people as opposed to the desires of profit seeking.

Brexit must expose how immigrants have been deliberately and falsely blamed for the outcome of actions taken by Government and employers alike.
Justice demands that the Ministry for Health re-instate the legal duty of care for the health of the people, as it's primary directive.

Jeremy Hunts imposition of the Junior Doctors contract must be rejected, and who ever legislated the removal of that duty of care must be held to account - that was a constitutional change beyond the remit of Government - if anything it is a matter for a referendum. 

 
Justice demands that taxes on massive corporate and investment banking profits match those of the workers, or that they meet in the middle. A just and fair taxation system must be the core of Government funding.

The Panama Papers issue, and all that it entails, must not be allowed to vanish off the radar. What that reveals must be brought out into the open, for all tax payers to see.

Justice demands that Governance is of the people, by the people, for the people as a shared responsibility.

The Power Inquiry must be re-visited, and it's details published at the local level, in local papers and by local councils, and in all our secondary schools, so that a wider understanding of deliberative democracy is encouraged.

Justice demands that the NeoLiberal privatisation agenda be rebutted, annulled, dissuaded, dismantled where ever it has found traction, in favour of socially nurturant policies of the people's own participation and choosing.

Power must be invested in the ordinary people, the tax paying electorate.

Justice demands that all mothers be fully supported as mothers for as long as their children need, rather than be set up as part time mothers venturing into work to pay the bills of the bankers, their mortgages and maintain house price bubbles, abandoning their children to 'care' in order to 'grow the economy'. That cannot stand.

The available evidence related to early bonding, and how disruptions to the biological mandate of early bonding creates waves and waves of chronic stress that causes harm to individuals , families, communities and to Society as a whole must inform policy in this area. Parenting must be recognised as the base of a psychologically healthy society.

Justice demands that these be done, not as revenge, or punishment, rather as a recovery of common sense and empathy in all our institutions.

These are all of one piece, all connected.



There is no unemployment in this work.

There is no end to this work.

This work is life nurturing.

We were played about Iraq and the EUref. Admit it.

Chilcott will not indict Blair. It cannot do so. It cannot even suggest it.

For an indictment, for the ICC to act, the British Justice system has to investigate Tony Blair and about 5000 other establishment operatives in media, government,civil service, military and other positions of power and influence.

The 2001 International Criminal Court Act is the mechanism under British Law by which this can be done.

The only politicians to suggest this direction in public are Corbyn, Skinner, Galloway, Sturgeon, Salmond, Wood...... The Greens have yet to declare Iraq a War Crime and call for an investigation, an official War Crimes Investigation, a criminal investigation.

The only way to ensure that we, together, can do this is to elect a Labour/Green/SNP/Plaid Government with a solid majority.

The working class of the UK must see that the interests of the working class of Iraq are one and the same. Justice and a fair society based on consensus around the evidence.

Then and only then will a War Crimes investigation be directed by a British Government.

The only way to ensure this is for 'remainers; and 'leavers' to chat, to share, get to know each other, trying to understand each others position - we have all been played.

The leavers were lied to, the remainers voted in fear, neither side saw the illegitimacy of the EUref, let alone take a stand against it as such. That was myopia, a profound failure to understand what the people of the UK are really up against.

We must admit it. They play us because it is so easy, we make it so easy for them.

We were deliberately played by the best in the business.

Let us now help each other.

Cease the infantile bickering.

Teasing out the realities of life in the UK for the people on permanent low income, the youth unable to enter the mortgage game, the low income youth unable to afford a decent University Education that will help lift them out of poverty, the disabled whose support has been gutted, the unemployed who are being bullied every day, the immigrants who are being blamed for British employers avarice, the single mothers, who really want to be good parents, rather than good workers  - getting out of the London bubble is key to this.

Listening to each others real life problems is key to this.

Empathy for people living different lives, in different and difficult circumstances set by Government policy is key to this.

Getting real is critical to all of this.

We were played during the Iraq War, the Libyan War, the Afghan War and the Syrian War, We are being played.

We must acknowledge our vulnerability, and face it and deal with it.

Or live with the consequences.

What next? Brexit, Corbyn, Low income workers, the British Power Establishment and you.



Jeremy Corbyn has been in Governance and politics since 1974.

Nearly 42 years of experience, direct experience of the establishment in action.

He knows what he is up against.

Hence his smile.

He knows how they behave, what their insecurities are, he knows their personalities way better than any of us.

He knows their scent, their stench, their dreams, their nightmares.

He has spent time in their company, up close.

His independence and sense of autonomy is well known.



Corbyn was one of 12 Labour MPs to support Plaid Cymru and the Scottish National Party's call for a Parliamentary Inquiry into the Iraq War.

12 Labour MPs.

Think about that, What does that mean?

The lost that vote. What does that mean?

His stance of refusing to goad or be goaded has generated massive insecurity amongst the establishment, especially since he became leader of Labour. They have no traction with him. He cannot be triggered. The shit they fling does not stick to Corbyn.

Like shit off a Corbyn's back... a new phrase. You read it here first folks.

His stance has outed the war criminals and NeoLiberal collaborators within Labour, the well dressed cuckoos in the nest.

And in spite of all that he has offered an olive branch to those who sought to undermine his leadership.

They will not take that olive branch,  and they will stoop further into the gutter to destroy him, personally and politically - and he knew this when he stood for the leadership.

They did.

Labour MPs in the Sun calling on people to join Labour to oust him.

Fair enough.

People did join the Labour Party to elect him.

The next step will be to assign the task to ISIS, the proxy army of the House of Saud. The task of removing him.

The entire weight of the establishment.  With all the resources they have at their disposal. Including our gullibility. Including our deference and timidity.

He has chosen to take them on.

He knows he has to expose them for what they are, to every UK Citizen, what ever party or side each of us occupies - he is damned strong. That takes real guts and passion, clarity of thinking, discipline. Qualities lacking in the current Labour PLP.

And he cannot do it alone, and neither can Labour as a single party, This is not a solo show, folks and we are all involved, one way or the other.

Solidarity is the key here, and remainers and leavers alike, all of whom were expertly played by the Establishment need to admit that we were played, that we fell for it....

Then we need to get a grip and start listening to each other, to understand what needs are not being met and why, and how we can help each other meet those needs. Remainers and leavers need to talk with each other, get to know each other beyond the vapid stereotypes the media presents.

We have all been played by experts. Our willingness to be angry at others who voted different, because we lost is one of our weaknesses.

We need to direct that anger and outrage at the establishment and at all bullies in our lives.

We need to master ourselves, and be true warriors of peace and dialogue, and not fall into insult or abuse or mere opinion.

Get informed. Become a knowledge base, develop policy based on the evidence, all of it, the whole. Be prepared to respond to new information, plan strategically, play tactically. Learn what these words mean in the world of power politics.

Satire is fine!

And it works much better.

EUref I, Remain, Leave, Bullying and Us. EUref II

Here are two videos encapsulating my insights on the EUref, and the bullying of Jeremy Corbyn by the British Media, Tory Party and those within the Labour Party who seek to undermine his, and the memberships, democratic mandate.

The EUref as it was presented and timed was 100% illegitimate and there are many reasons why. I have outlined the most fundamental in this short video.






What ought to have happened, but did not and what must happen next.

The UK government must negotiate a treaty to leave the EU.

Then that Treaty must be put before the electorate as evidence with which to compare the current situation with UK in the EU, for which we have ample evidence.

The referendum would decide whether or not the UK electorate are willing to ratify that new treaty and leave, or reject it and stay.

A referendum based on evidence rather than mere opinion.

There are other reasons.

For one thing there was no pressing need for this matter to be up for a vote.

It was imposed by a Tory leader playing political games within the Conservative party, and within wider society.

Their need to unite their party and to divide and conquer the electorate was the need to which the Referendum was addressed, and within that a desire by the far right of the Conservative to push the party as a whole even further to the right.

These are not sound reasons for any referendum of any kind.

2. The mistreatment of Jeremy Corbyn by the British Media and the Blairite NeoLiberal cuckoos in the Labour Nest.

Bullies pick on the strong in order to dominate the rest. Because the strong show the others that resistance to a bully is feasible.

Bullying is the core problem behaviour of politics.




The psychologies of the by stander and of how bullies manipulate the less strong is something we also need to look at, in ourselves and across society.

We must talk about this with honesty and clarity, based on the evidence and deal with it and excise bullying from Governance, policy making and media discourse on politics.


We must also know where we are coming from.

It is less than being about a revolution than it is a matter of recovery, a return to optimal health.

Somme : They died for Tony Blair's Freedom.

"they died for our freedoms"


The died for our freedoms. That's the claim.

They were murdered.

They were maimed, traumatised, broken.

They died for our freedoms.

It is a lie.

They were murdered. On both 'sides'.

They were murdered for the British Establishments freedom to wage war again, less than 100 years later. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria.

80 million working class low income folk have had their entire lives turned upside down, with millions dead, millions maimed, millions in refugee camps.

"They died for our freedoms!"

To honour the dead of the Somme, then Tony Blair, Anna Eagle, Jack Straw  and all of those who enabled the illegal war of aggression against the Iraqi working class people, the Libyan working class people, the Syrian working class people,  must be honestly,robustly investigated, and then arrested each and every one of them, and brought them before the courts, to account for their actions and the outcomes, in public.

We are free to do this, the evidence is clear, the law is clear.

Honour the dead of the Somme : Keep Calm and Arrest the War Criminals!

What could be more simple, more clear than that.

Immigration driving down wages - why that is a lie.

The argument that immigration from Eastern Europe into Britain was the cause of lost jobs, due to low wages they Eastern Europeans and others were paid is a classic misdirection.

It is also known as 'Gaslighting'.

1. It was the choice of the employers to pay those low wages.

2. The Eastern Europeans did not advertise themselves as cheaper labour. They did not come here and say "We will do that work for less!". They came here and took what was offered. Who offered it? And why?

3. It was the choice of the Government to accept the employers choice to make more profit by paying less on wages to vulnerable people..

The Government could have said : "Woah! No you don't!". They live here now, they get same wage as standard for that job.

They could have said, "here's the national minimum wage, and here's the standard for skilled and unskilled labour in your industry."

"No discrimination."

"No exploitation."

No. What they did was to make the situation worse. For everyone concerned, except the employers.

They created Tax Credits to insure the employers, to ensure income working class people in Britain, resident British people, could be employed at low wages, with a tax payer top up.. and the employers could make more profit.

As if it was a gift.

The they use that set up and loudly acclaim their social program.

"Look at what we are doing for YOU!"

Then they whisper into hurting people's ears, and present them with images for their eyes and they say "They take your jobs, your houses, your schools, your streets......"

And anger mounts.

And so it goes.

THE EMPLOYERS CHOSE TO PAY LOW WAGES AND THE GOVERNMENT APPROVED.

Is this what the dead of the Somme died for?

Exploitation of vulnerable workers, so that Industry could make more profits using cheap labour.

Do not hold the immigrants to blame for that.

Hold the employers to account. Hold the Government to account.

I wrote a poem. About Nigel Farage. You might like it.


 Nigel Farage : he is part of the Power Establishment. He is an agent provocateur.






Farage forages for rage, fettling fearage, a foul farrago, frankly feral.

Murdoch mediates misery, meticulously mouthing malice, Machiavelli.

Cameron comes on, compassionate and calculated cruelty, crafted.

Ian Duncan Smith is the hammer, and poverty the anvil.

With the vulnerable in between.

That was in the past, some said.

Andthe horror of the Iraqi people lives on today.

Back to the present predicament.

EUref!

Where's the referee?

Was Corbyn Silent?

He was not!

The media silenced Corbyn.

He was clear.

Remain to reform, he said.

Paper View.

What the media opines as fact is false.

Pay per view. 

Poverty Porn, on the television - THAT had a budget!

The Independent Living Fund cut!

Free Nappies to provide independence instead!

The disabled fought back.

In wheel chairs and mobility scooters, on crutches, limping into parliament!


Who stands with them?

Who, then?

Who?

It has to be you.

It has to be me.

Not Corbyn alone.


Not that.

It has to be us.

All of us.

All hands on deck!

It has to be us. Coup! Coup!



It has to be us.

Blair and Obama, Putin, Cameron: they all know very well why Sanders and Corbyn are emerging, and what the constituency represents.



And they are way too scared of it to even mention it.

They cannot bring themselves to even attempt articulate it... in public.

In private they go over that emerging threat - our awakening -  with a microscope, and they plot, they plan, then they deceive, they execute, they legislate.

Cukoos. In our nest.

Coup! Coup!

They are flapping.

They fear his honesty, his integrity, his grace under fire. He does not play their game.

We see this.

They will not talk honestly or openly with Corbyn.

And just as he will not fall for their goading, they refuse to stand up to the plate of honesty, and play his game.

Our game. The game.

Prime Ministers Questions is in truth Prime Ministers Evasions and Insults.

Institutionalised professional Bullies such as Cameron, Gove or Duncan Smith know what they are doing, and they have enough 'intelligence' to understand what drives the movement,  or rather broader they are well aware of the the psycho-social awakening of which Corbyn is in some way a representative..... 'the growing political awakening' as Zebigniev Brezenski once said.

~

Blair and all people like him fear that above all else.

Their psychology and ideological mind-set regards the pain of others in a utilitarian manner.

They do not care for those the sensitivities and feelings and psyche they harm when they cause pain, or care about the collateral damage caused while they are pursuing their agenda.

They know they can use that pain, they understand that they can manipulate people who are fearful, confused, angry, hurt, isolated; they know they can reach them through their pain and trigger behaviour patterns.

They are bullies.

Those who rule, and those exert violence to maintain that status, they study the matter. It’s a science for those who rule; the carrot and the stick.

Gaslighting.

Grooming.

Seduction.

Charisma.

Charity.

Humanitarian action.

Leadership.

It’s not a ‘perfect science’ though that is the ultimate goal – the perfection of the techniques that allow a Government or other group, or an individual to exert psychological and material dominance over a people, and use those peoples work to retain, enhance and project their power.

That is partly why they cause so much pain.

And why they then dismiss others pain so easily.

And we pay their wages.

Neoliberalism.

It is the ideology and the lack of natural empathy for those they rule over.

That latter quality, the lack of empathy is what created the ideology.

We need to diagnose correctly the situation.

Our situation.
A dire situation.

And we must, in recognising this, treat it as a diagnosis and seek a robust path of healing and importantly, prevention.

Prevention is the outcome of healing.

The abuse must cease. The harming must stop.

And that is a matter of the most urgent attention for all ordinary voting and non-voting tax payers and their kin.



So here’s a short poetic piece.I hope you like it. I do.

Brexit : Triggering as a tactic of film makers, bullies and political power establishments.


Brexit : Triggering as a tactic of film makers, bullies and political power establishments.

In simple terms what I am exploring here is a media campaign that is a bit like a shit stirrer in an office whispering into different peoples ears that 'that person thinks you're a shit' in order to start an argument and fight, for either pleasure or profit. It’s all about power.

The Power Establishment are experts at that and we have to become expert at spotting it and deconstructing it and not getting caught up in it. That also means we need to get to know ourselves a little better.


1. Understand that the intent behind the xenophobic materials published by UKIP management and the Murdoch press et al was twofold : a) to give the impression that there are a lot more racists around than there actually are, and that they have a greater power than they really do.



b)It was also designed to mask the expected protest vote which had nothing to do with these traits, (it was a rejection of ALL Governments of the past 40 years by working class low income folk whose voice Westminster and the intelligentia sneers at - poverty porn was no accident and not documentary ) and make that protest look like a majority of leavers were racists and xenophobes - and of course, we fell for this, and now the grass roots are calling each other names based on a media set-up and it is getting personal, which raise the intensity



2. Listen to people's concerns, try to understand what difficulties they are faced with, how they feel for their children's futures. Connect to that, ignore the set-up, acknowledge the abuse of Government and the lack of their voice in political mainstream discourse. If they feel heard, then they too can listen. The you can deconstruct the opinion from the evidence. As a sharing.



3. Media can report 20 incidents and make it look like a massive surge. That is part of the tactical approach of media serving power. The violence of a few nasty street thugs, who are a tiny minority in this country can be made to look much greater than it is. The media are doing this, on all 'sides' to inflame the situation. This divides us further.

How Bullying works….

“Bullying is a form of scapegoating and projection. We know that scapegoating is a hostile socio-psychological discrediting operation in which people move blame and responsibility away from themselves and towards a target person or group.

It is also a practice were angry feelings and inappropriate accusation are placed on others. Quite understandably, the target feels persecuted and receives misplaced vilification, blame and criticism; and the victim is likely to suffer rejection from those who the perpetrator seeks to influence and again, an increasing feeling of isolation.
We live in a society where bullying has become increasingly acceptable, and certainly, as form of doing politics.”

I suggest you follow the link and read this very accurate and informative blog on How Bullying Works.

Bearing in mind that in British Schools, 45% of children report being bullied and no Government program has been successful at reducing that number. Which does not surprise me as coercive education is institutional bullying.

Please examine your reactions and emotions, and try to see where you have been triggered, and please stop calling all ‘leavers’ xenophobes and all ’remainers’ selfish middle class landlord traitors!

We can see patterns across society, yet it is really inaccurate to apply those patterns to every individual, and you have to talk to individuals, in some depth, to see where they are coming from. Do not let the media project nasty shit onto millions of people you do not know.


Manipulation by emotional theatre.

The recent videos of Ian Duncan Smith and Anna Eagle crying are theatre.

These are supposedly mature adults, both of whom have supported policies of extreme cruelty (ATOS and Iraq) based on false assumptions and wildly off beam justifications, with horrific outcomes for real people, which they both ignore and dismiss as irrelevant, and who are entrusted with the duty of care inherent in administering the utilisation of our shared contributions, the taxes we all pay into the Excehquer.

Outcomes indicate intention, especially if the pattern of action and outcome is repeated.

The poverty in Britain is a direct result of Government Policies, whoever has been in Government, whoever has been in opposition.

They want poverty to happen. They want war to happen. Only it doesn’t ‘happen’.

The presence and persistence of poverty is induced.

Man made. Power made. Power mad.

They used my taxes to cause all this harm.

They used your taxes to cause all this harm.

They used our taxes to cause all this harm, and more.

So much more.

Millions of British children living in relative poverty.

Millions of parents living in poverty.

Food banks, investment banks. Both growing.

Buy-to-let promoted by Government, driving rents up, driving low income families and individuals, entire communities out.

There's something deeply, profoundly wrong with that.

And those tears. Really?

They just don’t care. They

The Brexit vote was an expression of that knowledge. They just don’t care.

They will try to manipulate us any way they can think of.

They do not care about the low income folk, in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Palestine, Africa, South East Asia, America.

Working class people, all of us. We will never be landlords. We don’t want to be landlords.

They are institutionalised bullies.

"Having narrowly won the general election, the Tories are now trying to rig the system to keep themselves in power, and weaken opposition both inside and outside parliament.

Late last year they drove through a new voter registration scheme that will slash the number of young and inner-city voters. And later this Parliament they will cut the number of parliamentary seats. The Conservatives are gerrymandering the electoral system to benefit themselves.

By directly attacking Labour’s funding through their trade union bill and by cutting public Short money support for opposition parties’ research, they are deliberately setting out to constrain democratic accountability.

Add to that their “gagging law”, which prevents charities, unions and thinktanks from taking part in political debate near election time.

Their threats to use the BBC’s charter renewal to hack away at its independence;
Their packing of the House of Lords with Tory peers; their moves to restrict the powers of local councils, it all adds up to a serious attack on democratic rights and freedoms.

Theirs is the party funded by hedge funds backed by a press owned by multi-millionaire or even billionaire tax avoiders

Their concept of fairness is of a very different order to ours. Fairness for only a few is not fairness, but privilege."

So says Jeremy Corbyn, so says the evidence. They do not care.



All this for power, as an end in and of itself.

The Power Establishment.

They are all deeply, profoundly opposed to any threat to their dominance of the British people and economy. It’s personal for them.
Corbyn is not. Quite the opposite.

Their concerns are with Power over the people; not with the people.

Corbyn and those who genuinely support him are not willing to accept that Government is power over the people. We pay their wages.

The moves against Jeremy Corbyn and the movement which he is re-presenting are all about Power, and those who oppose him seek power as an end in and of itself, through which they project their one prejudices. We pay the price.

Gaslighting is another tactic of the bully system. It is designed to undermine the targets sense of self, and leave the target open to suggestion or to alter the targets perception to suit the bully. It can be difficult to identify.

They are very good at gaslighting.

Just so you know.

NeoLiberalism.

It is the ideology and the lack of natural empathy towards those they rule over, thopse they feel threatened by. That latter  dynamic created the ideology.

We need to diagnose correctly the situation.

Our situation.

Fast!
