Signs Of The Times

From the beautiful world, when we were young, life was simple. There was true hope, happiness and love. The summer days would be long, happy and bright. The world worked in harmony with goodness, unity and light. The birds would sing, the flowers would grow, looks like back then we didn’t know, what would happen to this world and what it would be. We trusted the wrong people, improperly. Year by year, decade by decade, little did we know our beautiful world would fade. As we advanced, we forgot what was true, trusted the leaders that hindered our view, as technology advanced we took our eyes off the prize, allowing for misdirection, manipulation and lies. While we progressed, the world has digressed. The values we once held strong, lie on the floor in a mess! What the hell happened to our true humanity? Could we turn back the clock and stop technology? The world is now spiralling out of control, by the grace of God, we hold on to our souls. When is the darkness going to end? This world will never be the same again. Search your soul and look for the light… For until this time is over we will continue to fight!

Brexit-The Okie-Cokie

Brexit-The Okie-Cokie

What happened on the 23/6/2016, will go down in history as one of the most surprising British referendums ever. The result of the national referendum turned out in favour of leaving the EU with a 51.9% lead. Shocking millions in the UK and around the world. In my experience, it seemed almost everybody wanted to leave. Mainly due to the fact that many of us Brits think that we are better off and more stable financially out of the EU. This is because the country seems to have gone downhill, since joining the EU and many feel we have lost our sovereignty  as an independent nation, as England seems to become more and more European all the time. Weather ‘Brexit’ will affect immigration, remains to be seen with the rules changing, it now means Britain will have full discretion concerning who enters the country.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 After much deliberation, jubilation and celebration, not to mention the tumbling Pound, falling stock markets and reactions of Priministers, across the board, there has been a huge reaction in London. Protests in front of the House Of Common last night, 28/06/16. The people there saying that they request a “Second” referendum as they believe that their views and rights have not been represented correctly. They argue that with just 51.9%, the vote was unacceptable and unfair. Regardless of my personal view on this subject, correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t this seem a like a backtrack on the whole referendum? It shouldn’t be up for debate if indeed this was a true referendum. If the whole thing was done again and the results were the same, could they accept it then? Or would we have to have another? I’m not sure a second referendum should be allowed. It’s not like we get to have another election if we don’t like the successful candidate. However, will parliament bend and allow this to happen? One wonders and wonders.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Another leg to the story; London independence! The unthinkable, seems to be happening, who would ever think in a million years, that London wouldn’t be in the UK! Especially since it has always been the UK’s capital. Unbelievably, this seems to be the newest “Solution” to the Brexit row. London feel indifferent to the rest of the UK, with apparently, the most votes to stay in the EU coming from the region. It does seem a tad irrational at first thought. We will wait with baited breath, to see the outcome of these endeavours as we wait to see the fall out results from Brexit. Though one gets a feeling at this point that possibly just about anything could happen.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Image:Irishexaminer.com

What Happened?

What Happened?

The world today, is a different world to the one I remember growing up. Silent, cold , uncaring. Why is this? When did people lose their voices? How come it’s okay for all these things to be going on around us? Weren’t most of us raised to be strong,true and to speak up for ourselves? I was raised by a strong mother in the midst of oppression and threat. For me to stand around and watch people being manipulated,lied to,attacked and even murdered is impossible. I cannot do it and I won’t .

It seems rather strange when you think of past years. If you’re around my age (35) maybe you will know what I’m talking about. When my generation was young, the worst threat we had in the UK was from the IRA ( they would plant a bomb, maybe every few months or send out letter bombs) That was considered barbaric in those times and was kind of the worst things got. The IRA were attacking England because they wanted them out of their country . England had shown up in Ireland to “help” the wars going on there but didn’t really help.

The way the world is now, for me it’s too unsettled. Doesn’t actually feel like you’re 100% safe anywhere, anymore. I have a hunch that that’s about to get worse too! It just seems like chaos everywhere lately.When we were growing up we used to moan about nothing ever happening! Well, there is plenty to keep us occupied now, but at least we had the freedom of being able to play out in the streets or in the area. Unfortunately, I’m not even comfortable enough for my own daughter to do that these days! All the terrible things that are happening daily now, we don’t even get a chance to grieve properly for anything, before having to get our heads around another catastrophe. Will it settle down or will it blow up? I know which I’d rather, and which is more likely to happen. We wait with dashed hopes daily, with everlasting patience, love and compassion. Maybe we’ll make it through ❤

Pride,Prejudice and Priority.

So, the last thing I want to do is to always be the bad guy! However, I feel this needs to be said. No one could have been happier when Gay and Lesbian humans finally got respected and recognised for who they are. It has ALWAYS been of utmost importance to myself that everyone is treated equally and with respect. yet this is kind of my point here…  Continue reading “Pride,Prejudice and Priority.”
