So there you go, after spending a whole weekend reading all the manifestos side by side that is what I learned from them. Realistically though I think I have showed that none of the parties really know what they’re doing. The system itself is at fault here so in this week I am going to outline what I see is wrong with the system and then put forward my own plan for our country, as if I was standing as a member of parliament, so let’s begin.
We need to look at a bit of the history revolving around the economy for the last 30 odd years, the boom and bust system and what has happened to the United Kingdom and the rest of the world, so we can understand why our political parties are so woeful now. I think the big issue is our business sector. We have one of the shabbiest in the world with the profit and bonuses over-ruling aim, rather than longevity, Continue reading The Week #21 6th May, 2015
Hello everyone. So this week I thought I would keep in theme with what’s going on in the national news and talk about British politics (hold on you non-Brits, don’t stop reading, this has ramifications for your own country as every country in the western world has similar problems in their economy so stay tuned, or skip to the end, up to you). What better way to start than to delve in to what the various parties say they are offering!!. I decided I would have to read their manifestos, I know no one does but I did and after untold hours reading and re-reading the five main parties manifesto (I’m not doing any of the provisional parties because I’m British and i think what they’re doing is raking this land of ours) I have come to some conclusions. I realise this might be a massive turn-off and you stop reading here – but I am hoping that you will be musing who to vote for and as my whisking through the manifestos will be of interest. As there is so much ‘stuff’ I am going to publish these ‘reviews’ in sections, a Party per day for this week, and give each manifesto a star rating of one to five.
I will give a brief outline of each of their plans and Continue reading Week #20 19th April, 2015
Hello, this week I have been pondering on apps and the “free” tag line that is synonymous with a lot of entertainment we consume and is free always the best way?
I have been looking at the app industry for a possible future endeavour I have come to the conclusion that the tag line of “free” can have wider impact on us than just the benefit of something ‘free’. I suppose it is fairly interesting and the way the world has gone in the last 8 years or so with internet based products such as facebook, youtube and the like coming to dominate their representative genres and both are free! I can see it made sense when both were being set up to be free, facebook being a system set up for social interaction in university and using university servers so students could keep the actually cost minimal. However, the huge Continue reading The Week 12th April, 2015 #19
Hello, this Tuesday I thought I would talk about the new Samsung TV, some of you may have read or seen things about this new TV that may be listening to your conversations for the purpose of marketing.
Is it an invasion of personal space, of our liberties? Quite possibly, it is up to you to decide. Some may say they have nothing to hide and it doesn’t matter, some of you maybe a little troubled, but in fact this is not a new thing. Continue reading Tech Tuesday # 7 10th February, 2015
Hello again chums! This week I thought I would talk about the state of the country and jobs, the topic of this is ‘Will we be a lost generation?’
Continue reading The Week #11 1st February, 2015
Hello again. So, it’s almost Christmas. I am fairly excited. I’ll be honest. I am old school that way. I love all the family around on a cold, dark night with a hot fire to sit by, watching T.V. and chatting about life and the cosmos. It’s quite therapeutic and somewhat spiritual – so thought this week I would talk about the good in humanity that rarely gets talked about (a bit corny I know but screw it, it’s Christmas!) Continue reading THE WEEK 21/12/14
Hello again for another instalment of The Week(I know, catchy title!)
So, what’s been going on this week in the world? Well, same as always really, government underperforming. The British budget is still rubbish – PM still doesn’t know what he’s doing – low travel cost inflation, ‘what a brilliant move’ said no one – anywhere! People upset but yet fairly ambivalent to the world going on around them. An Isis leader is killed, although no surprise there, if you put yourself in a video murdering someone by cutting off their head you’re almost certainly going to end up being killed very soon after. Two young girls from Britain realised that Isis are not the freedom fighters and the amazing warriors they went out to meet and found out that they turned out to be crazed, blood thirsty men who are fuelled by zealot zeal, with little reason that any rational being can discern. They should have done their research before going, but that’s just news. Continue reading The Week 7th December, 2014
