Truth Deniers

I make no apologies for this post...

I missed the memo, you know the one that said, "it's now normal practice and perfectly acceptable to lie through your teeth and attack people because they are not white males." You know that memo that gave a green light for politicians to use racist, misogynistic and defamatory language. Did you miss it too? Or are you one of the ones who are putting it into practice? If you're the latter… LEAVE NOW.

We have become a world of truth deniers:

  • Judges vilified and belittled for applying the law i.e. DOING THEIR JOB.
  • Academics, who have spent years working under strict ethical rules, being ridiculed because it doesn't fit the right wing agenda – vilified by people who don't even understand ethics!
  • Doctors and Consultants overruled by unqualified pen pushers in the Department of Work and Pensions.
  • Orgreave and child sex exploitation cases.

The examples are rising by the day. 

RACISM is UNACCEPTABLE and should be a red line for all of us. END OF! There is no excuse for it at all. I am sick of people accepting this disgraceful cancer on our society – THERE IS NO EXCUSE! It is the usual case of the right wing manipulating society to demonise a section of society so that people turn their frustration on them rather than the real perpertrators i.e. the political elite and irresponsible business owners like Green and Ashley.

Thatcher started this in the 1980s. Her strategy was to demolish the opposition and demonise workers who just wanted to work to provide for their families. It was politically motivated to eradicate ALL opposition. Let's face it – it worked because Labour became so ineffective until they turned into New Labour and turned their backs on the very people who Thatcher demonised!

The Tories introduced the ideology of "austerity" and blamed Labour and the immigrants for all that is evil in this country. They denied the truth of deregulation of the banks by Thatcher and greedy bankers causing the financial crisis. ANOTHER BIG FAT LIE. However, I really believe some Labour MPs believed the lies and I still feel some of them feel they have to emulate the Tories to win power, the very essence of why UKIP arrived and Labour lost votes!!

Austerity IS a political choice. The whole Government philosophy has been built on:
1.    Lies, lies and more lies
2.    Playing the blame game – "blame the unions"; "blame Labour"; "Blame immigrants"
3.    Suppress the truth coming out at all costs – spending figures; Labour's new policies; Orgreave; the Child Sex rings. What happened to the transparency we were promised? Oh yes… they lied about that too.

Let's be honest, Capitalism relies on the trickle-down effect NOT offshore hoarding by greedy, unethical corporate criminals.

The lack of housing, school places and jobs is down to the incompetence and failure of past and present Governments. It is not down to an EU citizen moving miles away from home just to feed their children. If you want to see real change, blame the real culprits:

  1. Successive Governments who have not looked after the interests of the people     
  2. Corporations and companies who have exploited workers, flouted laws and evaded tax.

And to those who have tried to silence me… IT WON'T WORK. I will not stay silent while my EU and international friends are blamed because you didn't bother to vote or failed to hold the Government to account. I won't allow my Government to make me out to be complicit in racism or prejudice. I value the opinions of professionals who have worked to gain their qualifications – more than I value the rhetoric and opinion of unqualified MPs that have not spent one day of their life without food or a roof over their head. I include the self-serving narcissist, Nigel Farage in that too! My gut feeling on Trump is he has been played by the ring wing of the Republican party - they needed a front man!

Let me just add this... you can NOT be a socialist and be racist!!!

I won't be a truth denier and I won't allow lies to be peddled in my name as a UK citizen. I am a proud citizen of the world and more importantly, your fellow human being. 

Much love
