Biography

Having been brought up till my late teens in a strictly religious environment, I'm now very aware of the damage which religious and racial bigotry, stemming from fear and ignorance, fostered by people of influence through lies, in the pursuit of power, does to societies. I believe that writing, the arts in general, and religion, are not worth a jot if they do not contribute, amongst other things, to redressing social injustice. One example of such injustice is the appalling political bias perpetrated by the British Broadcasting Corporation on Monday the 12th of December 2016, (ostensibly on behalf of the taxpayer). After hearing recent BBC news, I believe that the debate about Zionist imperialism has now become a debate about defending freedom of speech, literature, and the arts; the defence of which needs to be fought right here in this blog, and out loud. And I believe that if the Conservative Party are genuinely concerned -I believe they are not concerned- about the rise of anti-semitism, and about the rise of fascist politics including anti-semitism in Britain and Europe, then they need look no further than at the festering bucket of shit in their own back yard ie: UKIP's links with fascist, anti-semitic supporters in Europe, and in Britain, whose votes the Conservative Party have in the past openly courted-and who now 2/6/17-continue to do so I refer in particular to the BBC Today program’s report about the International Holocaust Alliance’s definition of anti-semitism, during which, a reference was made to the Labour Party -and only the Labour Party’s- alleged anti-semitism. Not a mention by the BBC of The United Kingdom Independence Party's financial links with fascist Robert Iwaszkiewicz, who has praised Adolf Hitler for his tax policies, defended domestic violence, and displayed racist, homophobic and misogynist hatred. Iwaszkiewicz *has said that Adolf Hitler was “probably not aware that Jews were being exterminated”. *has claimed that the difference between rape and consensual sex is “very subtle” *has said: "We must destroy the minimum wage and we must destroy the power of trade unions" *(from the speech in which he referred to black Americans as "niggers"). *"Gays are a gang of louts imported from abroad". *"If taxes were lower in Hitler's time, and now they're higher, what's wrong with wanting to say so?" *"[wife beating can] help bring many wives back down to earth". *"Women are dumber than men and should not be allowed to vote" *"Evolution has ensured that women are not too intelligent" *"The general public should not see the disabled on television" (an objection to the 2012 Summer Paralympics) *"Democracy is the stupidest form of government ever conceived". Not a mention by the BBC of the fact that UKIP -which has brought Britain to the edge of one of the most serious constitutional crises in about fifty years -is part of the extreme-right European Parliament group called Europe of Freedom and Democracy (EFD), or of UKIP’s links with right-wing extremists which includes the Danish People’s Party, the True Finns Party, the Dutch SGP and the Italian Lega Nord! Not a mention by the BBC of UKIP’s links with Lega Nord’s Francesco Speroni, who described the Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik as someone whose "ideas are in defence of western civilisation". Mario Borghezio, another member of the EFD group, declared that Breivik had some "excellent ideas"! https://www.theguardian.com/world/2011/jul/27/ex-berlusconi-minister-defends-breivik Not a mention by the BBC of the fact that in April 2013, the English Defence League openly endorsed UKIP with a statement that "All nationalist parties should stand aside in areas that Ukip have a good chance of winning ... Let’s not split their vote." SHAME ON THE BBC ! And so I ask this question of the British Broadcasting Corporation and other similar bodies: why are the people of Jewish faith who support Ken Livingstone, and who believe that he has done nothing wrong, not being allowed an equal voice in the press, and on radio and TV? Where were the hundred or so self-righteous hypocritical signatories to that letter condemning Ken Livingstone on the grounds of no evidence whatsoever, when UKIP, a party financed by European Holocaust Deniers and fascists, presented a very real threat of taking power in Britain? Nowhere to be seen or heard! A couple of minutes’ research by a complete amateur such as I, is all that is needed to reveal that the use of the term anti-Semitic in order to describe people who hate Jews, is a complete nonsense. The term Semitic is derived from the name of Shem, a character in the Genesis Bible story, and was ‘coined’, in 1781, to provide a scientific sounding name, to designate a group of languages. It was later used in order to give support to some very dodgy pseudo-scientific theories concerning the superiority of certain races, which have since been debunked. To be accused of anti-Semitism, is effectively to be accused of hating the Arabic, Amharic, Tigrinya, Hebrew, Aramaic and Maltese languages-or their speakers. That the Blairite, Neo Liberal Labour Party, British universities and other academic institutions should be attempting to close down debate, on the Palestine/Israel question, on completely specious grounds -of “Anti-Semitism”- is not only an intellectual nonsense, but an insidious threat to social justice, freedom of speech, and artistic and academic freedom. --------------------------------------------------- I believe that people should get more upset about the obscenity of human suffering caused by greed and neglect, than about a few obscene swearwords. ------------------------------------------------- Here is a horrifyingly accurate reflection on what we Homo-Not-So-Sapiens are doing to our home...Earth. ------------------Man by Steve Cutts--------------- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfGMYdalClU ---------------------------------------------------- Who said the following?: "Our Jewish friends are no more responsible for the actions of the Israeli government acting in collusion with the Syrian terrorists, than our Muslim friends are responsible for the actions of the Saudi government acting in collusion with Sunni terrorists". Me, actually: apparently that makes me anti-Semitic! -------------------------------------------------- "...We, the folk of North and South and East and West, In mourning black, or working rig, or Sunday best, Shared our sun and moon, our talk, our songs, “Two World Wars’ lessons learned”, I thought. How wrong...." The above words, are from my poem "In Memoriam:(audio recital above)....and they ought to be sufficient to anyone possessing a modicum of intelligence and honesty to explain why I am opposed to Zionist, Caliphatic, Carolingian, Nazi, British, USA, French, or Russian, Imperialism, or any other form of imperialism which oppresses others. --------------------------------------------------- In samples of my work below, (Double Limerick), I have provided just a few of a growing number of those members of the Israeli armed forces who are opposed to Israeli foreign policy concerning Palestine.

----------Owen-Pfizer-Smith-------------- Mister Owen-Pfizer-Smith, Now seeks to propagate the myth, That he gives a damn about the NHS, Or about those deaths from Aranesp, Killer capital is Pfizer- Smith’s master, And his race to the bottom’s getting faster, His backing of Big Pharma is as ardent, As that of the arms industry and Trident, Owen-Pfizer funded Blairite entryists, And promoted PFI-ing National Health Services, He didn’t vote against the Tory cuts, That snake in the grass couldn’t show any guts, He claims that Nye Bevan is his hero, But the evidence for that is…well, absolutely zero. https://www.caat.org.uk/issues/influence/resources/2015-02-03.ads.dinner-parliamentarians.pdf -------------------------------------------------- Audio above: What's Brexit? Brexit’s Brexit on’ that’s that, Hoo’ll tell uz ony owd claptrap, Hoo conno’ tell the likes uv uz, ‘Cose hoo dun’t damn know, it’s obvious, Hoo’ll tell uz t’ answer when hoo’s popped her clogs, When hoo’s shuffled off her mortal togs, Whilst plaitin’ fog on’ knittin’ cleawds, Hoo’ll send deawn t' secret to t' puzzled crowds, Deawn to Earth frum up on high, Hoo'll chuck a slice o’ of pie in t’ sky. ------------------------------------------------ Double Limerick According to David Baddiel, And purveyors of populist gruel, The Israeli armed forces Are rabid Trojan horses, That are anti-semitically fuelled. They question Israeli politics, With consciences very semitic; For opposing occupation, They’re thrown into prison. “It’s obvious; they’re anti-semitic”.

Your mums used to say that your health is your wealth, That’s no longer true: now it’s mine, And I’m selling it off to my friends, Global Health, Now your health’s like the fog on the Tyne. What a geezer Lord Pete, a double diamond, working wonders, For Global Health - just friends of mine, Blame’s the game, let’s blame nurses while we plunder, Now your health’s like the fog on the Tyne. Now your health is our wealth, thank the Lord Peter Smith, You voted to cast pearls before swine, You rushed to the bottom of the capitalist cliff Now your health’s like the fog on the Tyne. For Lord Peter Smith and Jeremy Hunt, Must toe the establishment line, The capitalist tide was waved in by that Cnut, Now your health’s like the fog on the Tyne. You ate all the pies, and you swallowed the porkies, You let us extract the urine, You swallowed the lies of Blair’s red tie Tories Now your health’s like the fog on the Tyne.

I told you not to waste your time, And sent you off to fight and die, for what? ----------------Monometre------------- Mono- metre isn’t used as often as it Might be. ---------------------------------------- ---------------Trimetre----------------- Tunefully Triple-tongued Ornaments: Fluttering Musical Butterflies: Semi-breved Angel song, Quivering: Soaring, in Star-vaulting Alchemy. ---------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------- -------------In Memoriam--------------- Erect more walls, demolish all the bridges, Put away your hearts and freeze them in your fridges, Send round the bully-boys to frighten little children, We will forget them, soldiers by the million. Turn back the clocks, and cast us off, alone, Blow the attack dog whistle, throw them a juicy bone, Telling them: “Your women will be raped, go get your guns!”. Now motherless they mourn, a daughter and a son. The aircraft’s vulturing flight above our heads, Mocks at her memorial: She Is Dead. We wear Yorkshire roses, symbols of our love, As storm clouds gathering weep for her, above. We, the folk of North and South and East and West In mourning black, or working rig, or Sunday best, Shared our sun and moon, our talk, our songs, “Two World Wars’ lessons learned”, I thought. How wrong. Snuff out the stars, spit on the bloodied sawdust floor, Let rule the thoughtless thug and Neanderthal boor. Let Britons drown in fascist hateful flood. Was it for this, the millions spilled their blood? ---------------------------------------------------------- Young Mademoiselle de L’Éclaire, Once thought that the birds of the air Drank wine and spoke French! They speak English -daft wench, And they drink lots and lots of warm beer. ----------------------------------------------------- The elephant sitting in our accommodation, In a tour de force of intellectual observation, Only now, has been mentioned to the nation, By the British Broadcasting Corporation: "Is the debate now about immigration?". What a pointless and moronic question. It's about the UKIP and THEM, "coming over here". It always was, and still is about xenophobia, Making bullets for bigots and murderers. -------------------------------------- ‘Tis said that bullshit baffles brains, …It never baffled mine, Of course, ‘tis true, it could fuel trains, But could it make them run on time? ‘Tis said Britannia ruled the waves, Reality is, she waived the rules, With Christendom, “civilised” her slaves, Of Christianity made fools. -------------------------------------- Ode Ter Th’Odious Fat Greymalkin's on ’is mat, Wi’ pride ’is well-fed face aglow, On’ evr’yweer as money’s at, He allus will be sure to go.

On Monday, the sixth of November, twenty fifteen, Reports reached the eyes and ears of America and Britain, Which, according to the FBI and MI5 wasn’t even half a hill of beans, About which millions of uncensored words had been written, Concerning USA citizens, possessing both motive and means, And a white Christian Pastor, on stage with three presidential candidates, Who with religious zeal, called for and prophesied with accuracy, On the grounds that, according to him, Gays are people God hates, The “execution” of them and their friends with mechanical efficiency. It came to pass on the twelfth day of June, twenty sixteen.

Thanks for reading "the non debating society"

Yes you are quite correct LCPTB the perceptions are being given by people who are blinded by their own prejudice.

Leaving the debating chamber empty of all but those who are like minded, offering no debate.

That is the point of the entire piece. Rather worrying that you interpreted it as my opinion.

I am clearly talking of theism and not material gods.

Thanks for reading.

As a member of a multiracial group I was both surprised and pleased to hear of your chapels combined moslem/Christian prayer session (I`d not come across it before)

I took Jan to be meaning the milk and water permissive idea of Christianity which a devout Moslem might see from watching the television, and should make him puke.

I think Jan was `getting at` that `all things to all men`kind of humanist-watered down parody of Christianity we get on the television programs these days.

I agree about building bridges.

The SNP, a political party which proudly boasts its nationalist credentials for all to see, obtained a small
army of MPs whilst Ukip with its 4 million voters obtained one.
Notwithstanding the electoral arrangement that allows
this to happen, it is not lost on me that the WW2 forerunners of today's SNP were active in seeking a
relationship with the Nazis on more than one occasion
when things looked to be going badly for the Allies - a
matter of public record that should concern all for its
relevance to the aims and values of today's political party.
Examples of the reported failings you dwell on as
existing in Ukip probably also exist in the SNP ranks,
if the media were to take the trouble to dig as eagerly
as they ignore what history can tell us about the
Scottish Nationalists' support of the UK when under threat. Give me Farage's Ukip any day.
Bigotry is such an adaptable thing. One man's bigot
is so easily another man's pious preacher according
to circumstances and desired intent.

Arms, revolution et al -
You are quite right../correlation is the more accurate
word in the circumstances. I do take your point about
not addressing my reference to the question of gun-running when allied to the revolutionary actions
of the Irish "rebels" against The Crown.
I am somewhat bemused by your condemnation of
"bigotry" (bigot: one who is obstinately and blindly devoted to party or creed) whilst you have no
reservations about resorting to sweeping
accusations of xenophobia, mysogyny etc by Ukip -
by inference including the 4 million citizens who voted
for that political party in the last election.

Hi - thanks for the extensive 2 for 1 post on my profile
page. I've replied previously on the arms situation and
the sad reality of the world we live in. Interestingly,
there's a connotation between gun running and
"revolution" in your other post...refer to the Anglo-Irish
conflict of 1916-1921.
I certainly acknowledge the circumstances in other lands
that precipitated changes of government and those you
list are a timely reminder. There are others. But what of
now - and their success or otherwise? History has its
own way of moving on - and what was sought has often
been relinquished in favour of a return, most famously
the return of the UK monarchy after the experience of
Oliver Cromwell's own "revolution". Each has to be
examined on its merits and its results. I would argue
that this country is the least susceptible to any
concept of revolution, spiritually and materially.
It is noted that to obtain change, the policy is to stir up
envy, prejudice and unrest to a level of dissatisfaction
that helps achieve that object. It was ever thus - but it won't work here.
As for your comments about Ukip, the only political
party that has maintained the right of a sovereign
nation to retain its sovereignty - the fact is that all
political packs have their "cards" and their "jokers":
note the unsavoury cases of misconduct in the two
leading occupying parties in Parliament. And if Ukip's
EU occupants manipulate that unaccountable conceit's
funds to work against it and its existence from within,
isn't that a form of "revolution" to be encouraged when
Orwell's modern "Big Brother" lurks across the Channel?

Hi again - just a brief follow-up, referring back to the last
sentence of my previous reply on "Virtual Morality".
The topic covers a wide range of "shades" and each
needs to be addressed on its "merits", whatever they are seen to be.
How would your position stack up in the years (1919- 1921) affecting revolutionary Ireland and its reliance on
gun-running to maintain its armed struggle against what
IT deemed to be an illegal occupation/authority (after
seven centuries and the original Irish invitation to Norman King Henry to lend a hand!!). Conflicted or what?
I would cordially suggest that each situation must be
met and judged as found and any predisposition to
generalise resisted accordingly.
By the way, reading of your various outdoor activities
took me back to my own - Snowdonia, The Lakes,
coast to coast across Scotland (twice) and various
other UK coastal/upland/highland jaunts - including the
Aonach Eagach ridge. Some memorable times and places to look back on.

My comments on "Virtual Morality" were merely a reminder
of the reality of the world that we occupy - and have
done since time immemorial. If we step back and offer
righteous homilies, others will step forward and offer
to fill the space with the material to gain advantage - to whose benefit? It can be forgotten that the innocent also
need protection and the means of defending themselves.
"Right" and "wrong" are linked to time, place and raison d'etre.
