Somebody tell me that I'm dreaming and wake me when it's over..."
Another day, another dollar pocketed in the global elite's snooker table of life. Gordon Brown (*sigh*) has shown he's not one to keep his flaky ideas to himself; here's the latest: an international satellite monitoring system. As the article suggests, there are a few countries who might be instinctively opposed to this, not least China.
He's already pledged £800m, that we don't have, to his proposed £10bn fund to alleviate the burden on 3rd world countries between 2010-2012: "Together the collective power of the Commonwealth must be brought together to tackle a new historic injustice, that of climate change.”
Why can't he just stfu and hie himself off to a nunnery where he can pray for world harmony all day long - he'll love the ankle-skimming garb and face-framing snoods. That would be a better way for him to live up to his father's principles of wealth redistribution and it would be cheaper for us as well. (Dubai, courtesy of RSB, here we come!)
As an aside to all this largesse, I read on another blog (sorry, I didn't bookmark it) that he's also given £275m in aid to another country in the past couple of days whilst Cockermouth with the worst flooding for years has been given only £1m. I don't suppose Brown understands the old saying: Charity begins at home. Look at that phrase, it isn't a selfish ideology, what it means is that you have to be strong yourself in order to help others. If you're fubar'd yourself you're not in a position to help anyone. UK plc is fubar'd.
A superfluous illustration: Imagine a truck carrying adults and children breaks down whilst crossing a desert. There's no communication, no one will look for them, supplies are limited and they have no choice but to set out walking. It's a long, hard slog. Who should have first call on the food & water? Adults or children? My answer is at the end of the post.
Brown, Blair, the Fabians, Common Purpose & their adherents are 'the greatest historic injustice' this country has ever faced. I've often called them muppets for their ill-thought out plans and half-baked ideas but really, there's only one muppet here, and that's me. Something more than blogging must be done and the way things are developing, some thing more than voting will be needed.
* The adults - they'll have the strength to continue walking and will carry the children to safety. The other way round and they'll all die.
