The EU Deabte, IN or OUT?

Should the United Kingdom remain in the European Union?

ebate eu

On Wednesday the second of debates involving leaders of two big parties in the political spectrum went onto the television podium this week. After last week’s BBC radio debate the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage took on Liberal Democrats leader Nick Clegg.

This debate was centralised on the subject of remaining as a part of the European Union or EU as its commonly known. With Clegg supporting IN and Nigel hoping to be OUT the other leaders of parties weren’t invited. After a General election is coming in 2015 to elect who will lead the country Conservative leader David Cameron has chosen not to sign up to the debates for months being scared of losing after his totalitarian ways involving vicious cuts, abuse and protection of rich friends. Ed Miliband of the Labour Party, who does want the debates was not invited either. David Cameron after the debates chose to critise the debate opinions to favour his own ideologies by not participating and then critisising from the sidelines. Cameron, whose special advcsors is Linton Crosby, classed as a dangerous man, tells Cameron what might benefit him long term. Cameron is also scared to face the music in the debates as all their leaders signed up to. The electorate are not stupid to see this corrupt little man squirming around to protect his abusive ways which has included unproven yet indirect murders of suicidal teens and people struggling with welfare cuts, sanctions and homelessness. He has also called for more deaths of badgers in a crack down on tuberculosis without any scientific evidence that the non predetory mammals cause the disease.

After Nigel began the debate strong with his passionate sound and wiping the floor with bumbling Clegg, Nigel had a tough point made with the audience. He claimed their had now been a “white working underclass” as a result of the EU powers altering Britain’s landscape. While this is true in part, Nigel and his army of fans turned to upset. They did not know how to take or accept that claim. The difference is it is true, but is a ‘do not mention’ detail to which Farage will mention and will gain votes for because no one likes the truth and it must be told. Though this is one of Farage’s main policies fuelling the EU OUT debate, Farage, like Cameron is handling it all wrong. This is not necessarily the EU’s fault alone, either.

The fact that if we had all jobs available or created tomorrow, it would take months to fill them with ridiculous form filling. Secondly, those jobs would be filled with unskilled, talentless or unsuitable to their skills positions. Just because a nurse can fix things does not means he/she would be exceptional in the role of mechanic, or vice versa. Someone who has business acumen or is capable or running their own and contributing long term to economy is not best suited to sitting on a till and scanning barcodes. It is crucial to place people in the correct working skillset of jobs. Which then highlights that Britain has no skilled positions and places people in any old dead end job to ‘get the numbers down’ and does not pay enough to live in an over extortionate capitalist country where only the rich and David Cameron profit from.

With Cameron’s failed personal policies in Europe and charging through the front door with demands has ruined the reputation of Britain. As one of Europe’s biggest and essential players at the table, we may need to renegotiate powers and be allowed to do so. With bailouts, support and many other things Britain doesn’t get credit for because of David Cameron, we need to handle certain controls. This is purely down to the fact, in the Immigration case, for example, that we cannot simply house many more. It is not because we have a xenophobic approach to migrants who we accept in many differing cases.

The influx however has caused employers to change the salary of job positions and hire cheap migrants so that they do not have to pay what someone is fully worth. We’ll have more on immigration and zero hours contracts at a later date.

As Nigel added we need to maintain our pound, negotiate toll numbers and support the now white working underclass. If we do this, and as a part of Europe, we can then help to stabilise Europe even further. There can be no denying that we are officially a European country. With so much connection from the EU also, it is crucial to connect with Britain favourably. It would be ideal if European countries could understand this. One man (Cameron) is not the full representation of a full nation that is Britain.

Though with Nigel’s ‘solution’ to give lower class jobs won’t be a ‘get rich quick’ answer. As mentioned above, the job market is hopeless at its current stage which is why is it necessary to have a welfare system in place, which Cameron wants to viciously destroy in 2015, even announcing he would start by stopping all under 25s claiming benefits.

With nothing “made in Britain” and a clueless leader of the country dithering and grabbing his hands on the first thing that comes his way to say will save us whilst looking into a publicity camera documenting his entire game face for votes, Britain will fail once more.

Farage also added he is interested in Fracking. We’ll have another debate on this at a later stage also. Though the basis for this is counterproductive. As the only nation in the world which doesn’t suffer natural disasters including Earthquakes and Tsunami’s, Fracking will rupture the plates under the Earth\s crust and kill us all. The greed for Cameron’s energy friends and not the common people will suffer as always. How much will the clean up bill be? He also wanted nuclear favour as Cameron has beforehand. When the debate finished, to which most policies Cameron agrees with, the Tory leader said off camera Farage was “wrong” in an attempt to play games with a cheap shot.

Cameron was under hot water from Farage too, who blasted the wishy washy country ‘leader’ for revoking the Lisbon Treaty which Cameron said once he was willing to tear up, as it were. Once again, as he did to get elected in 2010, Cameron lied.

Clegg said we should remain in the EU to protect jobs here and overseas if we chose to migrate. Adding that the economic recovery, which isn’t great will the Tories are fiddling the figures as soon as it comes out is suffering. Chancellor George Osborne of the tories has cast over-projections unmet and raised the deficit three times as much as Labour and lost the AAA credit rating for Britain downgrading to a AA instead.

Having trade deals whether in or out is available, but these are most beneficial as a part of the EU. It will also give us quicker contacts and connections to understand that even if you dislike a country, you can still trade with them at a reasonable price.

Using the notion of Democracy from Farage, he claimed we would get this back by leaving. Let’s be clear. This is a scaremongering tactic. It won’t regain Democracy. Britain is and has been one since being in the EU, regardless. Therefore, being in the EU makes no difference to losing a Democracy as we still have one in place. The threat to Democracy itself is the abuse form the Tory party revoking welfare, legal aid and human rights as just some of many totalitarian policies implemented to crush the lower, working and poor classes. Nothing in Britain works because of these abuses to suit the rich, fragmenting society to its very core. no one cares anymore, and why should they? What is their to be responsible about if politicians are changing the rules to fit their corruption on a daily basis? Then you will receive a visit from the Gestapo or police as many call them here telling you to be quiet and put the frighteners on you.

Failure. British ‘leader’ David Cameron.

Farage ended his debate by adding he wanted to trade with India, to which Britain ploughs millions in to support them (which has troubling views on women as third rate citizens and often involved with rape scandals) and New Zealand who stand alone. Of course a handful of people don’t make a full nation but it is a fact of which we cannot argue. Clegg said we should not adopt the Nigel Farage mentality of “Fantasy” regarding the “shun of the modern world. Women stay at home, gay abuse, climate change ignored.” He added Britain had and was “Compassion, diverse, not fantasy. Protect the Britain that we love.”

As a member of Europe or not, we would still be a nation of Eurovision. Though this could be a serious line of jeapody. Isn’t that the biggest reason to remain? Jokes aside, more serious problems are at stake here.

Leaving the EU will be disastrous. No one likes any form of war and should avoid this at all possibilities, yet is is sadly something that for many can be inevitable in time. With Cameron previously spouting of more terrorist attacks after he put us into further Unnecessary conflict we are more at risk. Without going to war with European allies (we are not warmongers, only Cameron, who wanted to go to the Syrain catastrophe from oil stakes) it is important to protect Europe (of which we are) as ourselves. It is about keeping the world as peaceful as it can be, despite alternate issues in countries around the world. Where possible, everything should be upheld to keep the land of every nation stable and supportive, regardless of conflicting political views.

Nations will need to lear to ‘get along’ despite disputes. Think of the economic value if nothing else and strive for that if you dislike others. as for the transition of powers, do not give into Cameron yet. Have policies on the sidelines ready but launch them in 2015, when Cameron is booted out of office as leader of the United Kingdom. Until then, don’t give him anything. But do give us some more points in Eurovision to re-establish communication and connection to remain IN and economically stable trade with other nations.

clegg farage

In the long run, we should stay IN the EU than OUT of it. With our trade, economy, being able to migrate ourselves to Europe in the distress of Britain and contributing to overseas economies, we will be stronger together. Being alone is further isolation and not productive. We my not like the growing bill of the EU, but it is a group of which we are a part of. We cannot simply throw our toys out of the pram because of Cameron’s failures to represent us well. It is the job of a politician to smooth over relations and communication to a greater goal among differening ideologies. Cameron has once again failed this and proved he is not doing his job. Adding to this, the young kids who travel to hotspots like Malia, Crete, Kavos and Sunny Beach, you won’t be able to travel abroad so easily and have extortionate prices raises on holidays abroad, to which the EU allows us to have to leave such stress for multiple periods. Remember kids, you have a vote. Use it. This will be the only time you get your say and the only way politicians listen to common folk.

Just like you voted for Cameron under false pretences, do not be convinced of a ‘get rich quick’ solution. This is going to take time. If we leave the EU we will be putting ourselves back another generation. If Cameron had any sense he would retract the vote or admit he was “misinformed” of the situation and feels it better to stay at this economic time.

So, in a nutshell, we must stay. You are voting for the policy, not the person. Clegg has the correct implementation. Farage has the points. We can achieve the points by being IN.

The Crimean Crisis

After yesterday’s shocking events in the Crimean crisis in which a Ukrainian soldier was killed and another fatally injured by Russian protesters the situation is developing at a rapidly catastrophic rate.

troop

Hours after signing a treaty to annex Crimea into Russian borders based on reports of 60% of Russian citizens populating the country, and after Sunday’s referendum, the gunfire occurred on Tuesday.

Though Russian President Vladimir Putin will not simply hand Crimea back, he should smooth over relations and ease tensions with Ukrainian’s and Russian protesters. After many see this as an act of Putin rallying Russians to do the work for him, Russia and all its resources are isolating itself from the rest of the world.

putin address

With condemnation from the United States, Great Britain and Europe with the EU officials also Putin must be prepared to accept reprimands. In order to avoid this Putin could make ‘good gestures’ though handing back Crimea is unlikely. For Putin, many say he is worried about his look to people as a strong leader. For Putin isolation from the rest of the world since building communication with the west and Europe strongly over years past, is something unwelcomed by all. Everyone wants to have strong and fair dialogue with Russia but such actions are going to cause separation. No one wants a war of any kind, including Russia. After building strong communications with all, Russia must repair this bond and again, accept sanctions of some kind.

If Russia can offer an alternative, this could ease a few tensions, even if the upset is too deeply broken. If Russia plans on ‘turning off its taps’ to Europe with gas supplies, this would also be another huge mistake. Europe are a collective whole. They are as one. In times of strife if the gas is cut off, they will be forced to band together to find a new supply. This means Russia will become obsolete in terms of energy provider over time. Europe will find a new source of productivity leaving Russia alone once more.

Russia have since shown no real interest to remain a part of the G8 after discussion of possible removal from the group. Unfortunately for Russia, this is one action that looks likely. Maybe this will give them a chance to reflect upon after the tensions pass on its position with the rest of the world.

We have always been supportive of Russia over handling of the Edward Snowden situation and Syrian conflict intervention. This is a very different matter however. Russia, nor any country, can act this way and expect free reign.

It is key to have Russia’s involvement in world affair’s but the mild ‘invasion’ of troops in Crimea to begin with to put pressure on nervousness in the region was not acceptable under international law, which has been broken.

Despite the signed treaty declaring Crimea to Russia, the region still belongs to the Ukraine. Should Ukraine fall into turmoil with no acting official then it falls to the hands of the United Nations/NATO to decide. The treaty is no Magna Carta. It is not worth the paper it is printed on. If Russia want to rejoin Crimea to the Russian regions it should talk and discuss political issues with its ‘owners’ Ukraine. It has to be done legally and not with short options on the ballot paper.

crimea-map

The initial reports have also been stated that Catherine the Great declared should Crimea retain Independence once more, the country returns to the province of Turkey. This was stated under the Ottoman law by the Russian Queen Catherine II herself.

As reiterated, Russia need to be a part of world affairs and discussions, but cannot create these actions of tension and expect no repercussions. If an area/country wants St. Petersberg or Moscow one day when they wake up, can they have it because they want it?  For now, at this very moment, Russia’s priority is to ease the tension with gunfire with sincerity for recent actions in diplomatic terms.

PAPPA THE RAPPER!

justin bieber attack papz

This weeks story in the tabloids could not be avoided. The curious case of Justin Bieber. A sensitive issue with fans if ever there was one. On Monday the teen heartthrob failed to show up for a concert at the O2 Arena leaving paying fans in utter distress. Even young children were in tears as others were dumbstruck for two hours. Various radio and news reports claimed Biebs was having some friend chicken at a restaurant. One father expressed on BBC News “We were fans of Justin Bieber. We loved him, now we hate him!” While passing fickle fans another added elsewhere they were OK with waiting two hours for him and tolerated the delay in favour of their baby. Later on in the week, Bieber collapsed and was rushed to a London hospital, where he allegedly in The Sun, screamed at minders and his music team who got the wrong equipment with his grown up toys. On Friday, the Canadian megastar launched himself at a photographer who took a photo outside his car. Bieber jumped out of the car he just clambered into screaming “I’ll beat the f*** out of you!” One photographer told the pop star to “f*** off back to America” where Canadian Bieber flipped. Perhaps misunderstood or intentional, this sent Justin over the edge, restrained by security. Another pap reminded such action could be classed as assault. Justin apologised after on Twitter to his fans and even sent a racy snap from his hospital bed, smiling, glaring into the camera topless and showing off the hemline of his pants.

Back in the day when a papparazzo is almost floored they used to understand it was a sign to back off and they did so. Nowadays pap’s need to “get that shot” which puts the money on the table and they have no reservations in how to ethically achieve it, instead being aggressive or invasive as a result. Pap’s need to learn to behave themselves instead of taunting others also. As for Bieber there is no excuse for the attack, possibly provoked. The 19 year old may have mis-understood the phrase and assumed his Canadian heritage was being mocked, however was being asked to go back to America of which he has cracked superstardom of. Never call American’s Canadians and vice versa, just like with Australian’s and New Zealand natives. They become extremely aggressive. One question is that of the music industry and suggest they should support the star. Some have argued that Bieber’s mini meltdown is the start of problems to continue. Others claim the “diva’s” partying caught up with him and took effect. Whatever the case, both sides have to learn to remove themselves from causing literal tension with provocation. Reporting on it is fine, but encouraging behaviour on both parts is extremely unprofessional and plain pathetic.

CLEGG CLOWN

Thursday’s The Sun had a snippet where “One Justin who will not let kids down” in the form of Mr.Tumble. Don’t be confused as this was not Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg in disguise.

HEALTH BOSS POCKETS BONUS DEFENCE FROM TORY LEADER

Cunning Conservative leader David Cameron has blamed opposition party Labour and Heath Secretary Andy Burnham for Sir David Nicholson, the man behind the NHS receiving tons of bonuses for the massive numbers of hospital deaths which occurred under Nicholson’s management. Labour stated Sir David should be “sacked immediately.” David Cameron once again senselessly attacked Labour for the blunder and again protected rich fat cat Nicholson, who claims to have done nothing wrong and takes no responsibility. Labour responded of Cameron trying to “politicise a huge tragedy” for personal gain. All David Cameron can ever do is blame Labour for every mistake the Conservatives are causing in their almost three of five year term in government of which they pledged to rectify problems, which has since seen Cameron obliterate the poor on benefits cutting their minimal money, threatening to remove them from welfare for up to three years and plan a tax decrease for the wealthy, including millionaires and bankers who gain ludicrous 100% bonuses for the coming budget statement due in a couple of weeks.

LEADER OF UK BECOMES SPORADIC JOURNALIST

Dave also wrote an article in the Sunday Telegraph last week and has mentioned Prince William’s 21st birthday security failings. The man who had a background in media before being elected to lead the Conservatives, also agreed with William Hague, Foreign Secretary, that Britain will be deploying minimal levels of armour and vehicles to Syrian rebels after China and Russia deployed military defences to the President’s side. Hague, who didn’t think twice about sending support along with the already cut defence budget in Britain, and as Cameron announced over the Mali intervention in terror wars “for decades to come” of which Cameron sparked for Britain with idealistic, thoughtless deployment, as a moral obligation.

ARMOR AID FOR SYRIA

While a moral obligation is there to help “more than 70,000 have been killed since the uprising of President Bashar al-Assad began in 2011” and as the only country that really supports almost every country in need of aid in some form in Europe, Great Britain cannot keep intervening into other people’s ‘wars’. If so, then the rest of Europe need to band together, but won’t because the world has become segregated into fear to ‘stick to their own’. Remember when the UN and all that war thing happened and nations would bail out one another if some country was under attack? Come on Dave, you remember your privileged Ox-bridge education on history lessons now, don’t you?

TOTAL ECLIPSE OF EU HEART

Bonnie Tyler has been announced as the entry for the 2013 Eurovision entry for the United Kingdom. With David Cameron’s personal idealisation on the EU, will we manage to beat nil points? Perhaps Europe will be gracious to give us enough points to make a point? Maybe we will get the number exact for how many European members Cameron got a no from? Now that, on Europe’s part, would be cleverer than nil points or near the bottom of leader boards. 61 year old Bonnie added “I’m very successful all over Europe. I think that will stand me in good stead.” The final of the contest takes place at Malmo, Sweden in May. Alternatively, you could start giving some points to make it seem less rigged.

BENEFITS BLITZ FOR MIGRANTS OR BRITONS?

Back to benefits in more detail. Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan-Smith claimed the handouts were facing a “crisis” as migrants are flocking to Britain to claim handouts specifically. Is this the excuse for cutting the benefits system from the poor or just an excuse to cut everything for everyone? Regardless of the answer, the poorest in Britain are suffering yet the rich are not paying or contributing anything to society. When the poorest who have no money cannot pay for anything how do you expect to keep things in the country moving? You have to take a sum from the rich, who it won’t affect fully and are contributing to the country to stabilise its future economy. David Cameron earns a whopping £142,500 a year, plus bonuses. (Source: Wikipedia)

Interestingly this information over the last week has miraculously been edited out from Wikipedia.

“The UK Prime Minister receives £142,500 per annum as salary for being Prime Minster. He is also a sitting MP and thus receives and additional salary of £65,737.” (Source:Answers.co.uk)

This is a man who is cutting Human Rights and seeking laws to legally track all your browsing history and details online to snoop your emails and information to collect from internet providers. Legal hacking, anyone?

Cameron also promised Indian’s on a tour of the country a fortnight ago they could come and live in the UK if they graduate and earn a job over £20,000. The UK has scores of unemployment increasing, including students now paying a hefty triple fees price tag set by David Cameron himself, with input from Business Secretary Vince Cable of the Liberal Democrats. Cam also went to poor nation Africa and pledged to send them aid rather than focus on his own struggling citizens he is supposed to be representing living in poor conditions for the UK even though not as poor as Africa, granted, the country at home is your main priority. No?

Guardian shielding elitism?

I also bought Friday’s edition of The Guardian, in store, however, could not find one story of interest, nor one that wasn’t completely full of blocks of text that should be readable and has a high level of “broadsheet” expectancy. As mentioned last week I can handle a broadsheet in contrast to a tabloid, but these are just many problems papers are facing, the Berliner size format allowing for more text and a strongly higher than’high-brow’ editorial is becoming problematic and needs either modifying by editors or inclusion of ‘lower brow’ writers the paper would probably class me into.

Three months ago in a passing comment a journalist who works for the Daily Mail mentioned in a mocking manner “Another debate piece in The Guardian? “How to take these comments will be your choice as with mine above, however, its needs addressing and mine are clearly advice, should you wish to get a heads up. If you want a piece on something as well, I’m available. Thanks.
