Politics / 2016 referndum invalid?
« on: April 10, 2019, 02:20:23 AM »
Here we are in 2019 a little under three years after the 2016 referendum on leaving the EU, the so called brexiteers are to be seen on TV daily and their main argument seems to be that as a result of the referendum it is the will of the people that we leave the EU.
Another argument i have heard is that as Theresa May won the last election (with a little over 40% of the vote) and this gives her a mandate to implement the tory manifesto and thus to implement brexit are we to ignore the other 60%. secondly Harold Wilson once said a week is a long time in politics, a statement i might add which seems to have concensus across the political divide.
with this in mind surely three years would count as an eternity, so my question is that at what point does the 2016 referendum cease to be valid.
Iif you study the brexit polling since 2017 there has been a steady but inexorable rise in remain voters and an almost equal decline in leave voters, when i last looked it was 54% remain and 46% leave i would suggest that this coupled with the length of time since the referendum may make these arguments in favour of leaving the EU questionable at the very least.

Politics / an important message from the prime minister
« on: March 21, 2019, 05:10:00 PM »
Hello i adress you the People of Britain, the impass we have on my brexit deal is not my fault, the Brexit proposal i have put forward to parliament is not my fault, the shambles i have precided over is also not my fault.

Firstly to you the people of britain i urge you to take responsibility for your contribution to the mess our country is now in, in 2017 i came to you to ask you for a mandate to do exactly as i pleased irespective of how damaging this could be by holding an election, and you turncoat prolls refused to give me a majority and left me leading a minority government and as a rusult of needing to cling onto power i was forced to bribe sorry i mean persuade the DUP MPs to prop up my government.

And now i come to Parliament (spit) and the Mps whose duty it is to make decissions in Parliament (spit) who have done everything in their power to do what they think is in the interest of the british people, they have done everything in their power to hold me and my Government to account and to block any damaging proposal i have put forward to ensure that not only remain voters are furious but also leave voters feel the same, and in this respect i have clearly bought the people of Britain together i have strove to take back power from the EU and to hand it back to Parliament (spit) so that me and my Government can ignore it. who are these reckless MPs to try and adhere to the values of a Parlimentary democracy (spit).

As a result yesterday i came up with a brilliant wheeze, i would go on TV and slate off MPs both remain and leave and also the wavering MPs which will ensure even those minded to support me will never vote for my dreadfull deal and that Parliament (spit) will remain gridlocked and this will cause such confusion they will never have the time to think of getting rid of me. and to the traitorous MPs i say what the hell do you think this is a Democracy? lol. theresa

Chesterfield Discussion / choosy beggar
« on: March 14, 2019, 01:08:59 AM »
have any members of the forum come across "choosy beggars", this is an action which acording to the web is gaining popularity, i myself have been a victim of this practice (if victim is the right word) i was recently selling an item on ebay and received the following message.

hi iam a local fundraiser for cancer research uk and i am planning to do bingo events throughout the year and was wondering if you would donate items to achieve this please in exchange i will promote your business and if you can could u send me business cards to give out also i will advertise ur company i will defernatly need a bingo calling maching please please could you help with this to achive this please we also will be doing raffles along side these events i look forward to hearing back from you thank you

stewart tammy hooker
local fundraisers for cancer research uk.

When i refused his offer to take this item from me for free the response I received was most uncharitable, i complained in the strongest terms to cancer uk, as i considered his request was totally unsolicited and would have placed me in clear breech of ebay rules had i acseeded to his request i regard the response i received from cancer uk was totally dismissive.

Today i found out something about smart meters that you may not know, i certainly didn't, your electricity company can without warning remotely disconnect your electricity supply.
Some may think this is not an issue that effects them however we have all heard of the horror stories about people who have had these meters installed and as a result having their bill being miscalculated ending up with bills for thousands of pounds, and the electricity companies taking months to correct their mistake, there is a possibility in such circumstances that there is nothing to stop the company switching your electricity supply off without warning because you are in conflict with your electricity company.
I found this out when we had a visit from the power distribution company to fit an extra isolation switch as part of our houses rewiring, on asking these gents about smart meters both said they have neither got one and they would not be having one fitted. if the people in the industry do not trust them why should we.

Politics / Tory Minister Admits Voters No Longer Want Brexit
« on: March 10, 2019, 06:34:45 PM »
Yes it is true i was watching Jeremy Hunt on TV this morning and he stated that to stop brexit all that was needed was three things, vote down the prime minsters deal, get an extension to article fifty and then get a referendum.
What he is saying if you read between the lines is that the Government accepts that if we have another referendum then the people would vote to remain and  as a result there would be no Brexit.
Now forgive me if i appear stupid, but i have spent the last few years being told how brexit is the will of the people and how it would be an afront to the voting public and anti democratic if we did not leave the EU, and now a Senior Government Minister has finally let the cat out of the bag by telling some of us what we already knew, and that is that continuing with Brexit is not about democracy or the voting public but more about Tory infighting and dogma.

Politics / time for another brexit referendum?
« on: February 27, 2019, 01:12:23 AM »
Since the leave vote i have been following the polls including the governments poll of polls. now if these are to be beleived the opinion of the people has shifted quite dramaticaly with remain votors being in the majority for well over a year now and at the last count showing a lead over leave of 10%, yet still this discredited government is dogedly sticking to their mantra that it is the will of the people, without actually giving a damn as to what the people do actually want.

It has been three years since the referendum yet these hidebound bufoons cannot comprehend that "the people" may have realised that they have been hoodwinked by the like of Mogg, Gove and Johnson to name just a few and would like to correct a catastrophic mistake.

In any democracy the voters do have the right to change their minds, the only reason the so called brexiteers do not want another referendom on brexit is they fear they will lose as thier lies and deception are less likely to work a second time around, which followed to its logical conclusion suggests they are only interested in their own dogma and not in the wishes of the british voters which they erroneously claim to be standing up for.

Chesterfield Discussion / Chesterfield Car Boot sale good news
« on: February 10, 2019, 02:44:29 PM »
i spoke today to the head steward who runs the car boot sale and he stated to me that the car boot sale will in future be run without imposing a thirty car limit, this is great news for both sellers and buyers and should help to build up this local attraction to its former position of being one of the best car boot salesfor miles around. :)

Chesterfield Discussion / Chesterfield Car Boot Shambles
« on: January 27, 2019, 03:32:36 PM »
Yet another Sunday goes by and no car boot sale and yet again cars and vans are queuing up and it is called off at the last minute, if you are a regular you know that when it was on the "donut" in the town centre it was run very well by two people and it was always on and it was extremely rare for it to be called off. It is by popular consensus the most badly run car boot sale within a one hundred mile radius of Chesterfield (only because we don’t know of any further away).
 
Since it was moved to the football ground car park as a joint venture between the council and the club both buyers and sellers have not known whether it would be running or not, it was clear from the moment it was moved to the football ground car park that the stewards running it were neither experienced enough or committed to its continuation, as i was told by one of the senior stewards after i told him they should move it back to the donut he said he wished they would.

I myself have known them shut the car boot down because of "bad weather" and marsh lane which does not have hard standing and is privately run has been open, the reason for not running it this week was because there was only twenty three vehicles about a third being vans, now let’s have a look at why there was only this number of vehicles, I myself know of five regular stall holders who now prefer to go to Doncaster or Bawtry and i have witnessed cars driving off after sellers getting frustrated at the wait to find out whether it is going to be run or not, in numerous cases people have been kept waiting for over two hours only to be told at the last minute it is cancelled, imagine you turned up to Tesco or Asda waiting for it to open only to be told after two hours we are not opening today as advertised as we don’t have enough customers waiting to get in.
All this and a car boot sale which used to be run by two people now needs an army of stewards who are still incapable of running it properly or it seems with some but not all of the stewards communicating with the people who do come in a polite and civil manner.

This local amenity is not just a car boot it is also a place of local interaction where people meet and discuss local issues and the one topic that crops up weekly is will it be on or if it is on how come there is more cars than last week which ran and this week it is cancelled.

I must confess i do not know where this thirty vehicle rule came from i think they just made it up, on one occasion there were twenty seven vehicles and all the prospective stall holders got together and agreed to pay for the missing three vehicles just so they were able to stand and still these apathetic stewards cancelled it.

Also i find it irksome that if the carbooters are ten percent down it is cancelled and yet at the recent Bedford game the ground capacity was down by over three quarters to a little over two thousand attendees and yet went ahead, i also drove by on Saturday and the lights were on and there were spectators and it was lashing it down with rain, in the past the boot sale has been cancelled due to forecasts of light drizzle.

As I understand it the club has abrogated its responsibility to the community and has given the council an ultimatum that it will not run it after July, it is to be hoped the Council can find a new venue, and a couple of people who can and will run it properly for the people of chesterfield who the football club have turned their back on.

Reece mog has told May to close Parliament to prevent mps making amendments to government business, the truth is finally out leaving the EU was never about taking back control (of what), nor was it about bringing back so called democratic accountability to the "People", the brexiteers do not give a damn about any of those things they did not at the time of the referendum they did not want to take Back control for the People, but simply to aquire control of the people for themselves, how else could you describe closing down Parliament other than to stifle debate and prevent democracy, this man is antidemocratic and as far as democracy is concerned a treasonous traitor.

Politics / brexit coverage
« on: January 15, 2019, 02:54:21 PM »
Recently i have been watching the brexit coverage and a lot of the the coverage seems to involve going to towns to interview the "people" about the stupidly titled brexit, now the controversial bit, the tv companies in their wisdom always seem to include some old fart of my age and older to get their views ( people who seem to think that britain is the power it was in the nineteenth century with archaic views to match) while usually ignoring younger people, my veiw is what is the point of asking older people for their views as we are going to be dead pretty soon anyway we are not the ones who are going to have to live with the full consequences of leaving, if reece mogg is correct when he states that it is likely to be fifty years before we see any benefit from brexit then the only people who are going to see any benefit at all are likely to be well under thirty, and with this in mind why should i at sixty four inflict my archaic views (if i do indeed have any) on modern society, i can hear the howls of protest already. >;

Chesterfield Discussion / Royal Hospital DNA notices
« on: November 27, 2018, 06:45:53 PM »
when you attend the royal hospital i am sure you have noticed the posters informing patients about the number of people who do not attend appointments, my partner goes to the hospital regularly, as she has flu we thought it wise for her not to keep her regular appointment and with this in mind i attempted over a period of over an hour and a half to call the department to cancel the appointment during this time i made 25 calls only to receive an answering machine telling me nobody was able to answer my call, which leads me to an obvious question how many of the published DNAs where in fact DNRs (did not respond) needless to say in the end i gave up so now my partners appointment will be put down as a DNA, i must admit to being totally frustrated after tying to do the right thing and not waste NHD time.

General Discussion / Grenfell Tower bonfire prank police over reaction
« on: November 06, 2018, 07:21:51 PM »
I have seen on the news a video of a mock up of grenfell tower placed on a bonfire while people in the background can be heard making tasteless comments and laughing, also while someone was pretending to be shouting for help another person can be heard saying just stay where you are, which could be classed as satire.
Whie i consider the idea of people laughing and making jokes about it repellant i hardly think it is a matter for the police, however if it is a matter for the police then i suggest that events that happened in the aftermath of the death of Margaret Thatcher should also be investigated, there were scenes on the tv of mass jubilation, shouts of "maggie maggie maggie dead dead dead", the public burning of an efegy of her, though i personnaly was not offended by any of this, i feel sure there are other people who  were deeply offended including friends and members of her family, i think the public aprobation these morons will deservedly get for their tastless grenfell mock up will suffice,in the meantime let the police get on with sorting out rapes, burglaries, kinfe crime and acid attacks instead of wasting their time with these idiots.

Politics / Nick Clegg latest
« on: October 20, 2018, 12:36:52 AM »
So now we have it Mr Clegg is over in the good old U.S of A where he is taking up a job with the much maligned and discredited Facebook, no doubt he will be in comand of a huge salary, i remember a teacher at school telling us that honesty was a most important comodity and to remember that people who are dishonest never prosper, well there is another myth well and truly debunked.

Chesterfield Discussion / INSTITUTIONAL ABUSE 2
« on: August 17, 2018, 05:58:17 PM »
Over the years i have been aware of and a victim of institutional abuse, i have also witnessed and been a part of various instances of what i refer to as institutional lawlesness. i  have also tried wherever possible to make people aware of these abuses and to show them how the system is clearly rigged against them, in response to my statements on such issues i have over the years been labeled as being paranoid, an iconoclast and a conspiracy theorist and many other descriptions, now as you will know if you have read my post "this is what institutional abuse truly looks like" there are some things in my past which i prefer not to discuss because this would involve others who may feel certain things are best forgotten, with this in mind i approached the truth project explaining my reservations and i have been assured that i only need to give the evidence concerning myself and do not have to give any information concerning the involvement of others should i not wish to, and as a result i intend to give evidence to the truth project.
Now as you know from my other post i was in Derbyshire County Council Care, this was between 1962 and 1970 and as a a result of giving evidence felt that it would be helpful to have my medical records to coroborate certain things i intend to put before the enquiry, with this in mind i approached my doctor for access to my medical records between 1962-1970.
it is no surprise to me whatsoever that today i received a call informing me my medical records for this period have "been lost" and as at this moment nobody is able to tell me where they could possibly be or how i might track them down, i must say i do not hold my existing doctors responsible for this rather convenient "loss" and i suspect that they were disposed of (sorry i meant lost) during an investigation into allegations of abuse against the care home i was in, these allegations surfaced in the early 70s a few years after i had left and resulted in the care homes closure. in summation it is not paranoia when they really are out to screw you over.
