I got some European coverage in Italy this week, from
the West-info EU
so thanks guys – and thanks to all in the US
A new app has been developed called ‘mindglass’ which helps to select the preferred reading format for dyslexics with reading difficulties. You can find out more here – mindglass
Dyslexia comes in many different forms – it can be reading delay, writing delay and typically spelling issues. There is also the font ‘opendyslexic’
that might be worth a look. It won’t suit everyone (as nothing in life does) but it might be worth trying out.
I left part two of my look at Corbyn with the question ‘Will Britain step further away from the US?’ Well, I think we should, even thought I love the US and want to live there – it is too volatile, and forgetful, to be a useful ally. I believe we need to return to Europe more, as a super block it is more powerful than the rest of the world combined. Let’s face it, that is where the money is and the technology. So, for now, I say strengthen our ties with France as German control of Europe is worrying and so far gone unchecked – that is where we should be putting our attention.

Corbyn Labour Party
So it’s been a week since I watched the election, I was surprised that labour went with Corbyn. It’s definitely a bold move as there has never been such a left-wing Prime Minister in all British history. So let’s start with his appeal, well from the off there was no one worth their salt to go up against him realistically – all the other opponents are either tainted by the foul stench of being too close to Ed or Blair to really make them new and innovative. I know my mum voted for Yvette Cooper, who would have been a good leader but she is too close to Ed and the established political classes, I can see why Corbyn won as a real statement for the left but I’m just perplexed for what it means for the next general election.

Regular readers may recall I discussed the concept of national identity last week. It is a big topic in the UK but in my view I don’t think we have one anymore which means this Middle England elite issue has bled down to working classes, meaning we’re all just one massive ball of materialistic folk that go shopping to the same big stores, to buy the same clothes, to drink the same latte or frappuccino, to buy expensive things to show people we don’t know how much better we are than them and a ‘what’s in it for me’ culture. This lack of identity has cumulated in a strong lean towards racism and xenophobia, fuelled as I said by a lot of the press. That is why resolving the refugee problem is such a huge political bomb for the UK –the recent years of anti-immigration and UKIP surge contrasts with the need to be now seen as a nation that is humane and cares for others. Why is this a conflict – well, as I see it, when people’s lives are not turning out as they hoped we in the west rush to blame others and need to find a group to push our hates and jealousy onto – often the problem is fundamentally because of our own lack of ability or work ethic but many turn to making immigrants the easy punch bag to blame ‘taking our job’s –

And so the big question is what can we do? I finished on that point yesterday and will start off there today with the reality that in countries far away from the blockades and running police battles there is little desire by the majority of people and their governments to take refugees. This is especially the case in the U.K. where the government is keen to appeal to the far right vote by reducing net immigration. Each of the main European countries has approached this problem in their unique ways as I have pointed out;

Hello again – day three update on ‘getting your book out there’. We got up to the idea of self-promoting by video. So if you’re not bothered about getting your face out there and being a brand and being as was recognise, whether for good or bad, then get a camera out and get vlogging. If you’re British and aged anywhere between 16 and 26 it seems you need to get some stupid haircut, a vest, some lame tattoo and a baseball cap then you are guaranteed some sort of audience, so that’s another option, just get yourself out there I suppose and get your mug known, if you’re comfortable with that. Trust me someone will find you attractive and want to see more of you.
