We Need The #Heathrow Expansion

There are a few myths regarding the Heathrow expansion.

Firstly that the north of the country won't feel the benefits from it expanding, this is a lie.

I work for a small firm who's main contract is with Heathrow, 24% of the companies we deal with on daily basis have the HQ's north of the Watford Gap, including some companies based in Scotland.

Telford, Sheffield, Newcastle, Worcester, Glasgow, Darlington, Stone, Warrington, Keighly, Renfrewshire, Derby are to name but a few areas of the country that get business through Heathrow expanding.

Not only will the north of the country, and Scotland benefit for a third runway, but the south too.

Exeter, Swindon, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Middlesex, Essex are to name but a few other areas that will feel the benefits.

These are areas the company I work for deal with, and we are a small company, imagine all the other areas of the country that will benefit.

Jobs will be made, houses will be built, investments will be made.

Also the expense of expanding Heathrow isn't as high as some other ideas, £18.6 billion, which if we add another £10 billion for mistakes (it's Britain, there will be mistakes, setbacks etc) whic tallies it up to £28.6 billion.

Boris Island, the most ludicrous idea ever thought up, could have cost us £100 billion!

HS2 is costing £30 billion, again add on another £10 billion for mistakes, makes it £40 billion.

Heathrow expansion is by far the cheapest, easiest, and most beneficial for the whole country.

Clinton or Trump? Neither!

I have to be honest, I am ashamed at USA right now, out of the 318.9 million people it's Hilary Clinton vs Donald Trump who are running against each other to become the next President of the USA, the most power country in the world.

Here we have two people who are beyond corrupt.

Clinton is clever, which in one way makes her, in my opinion, more dangerous than Trump.

That's not only what bothers me about her, she's getting away with someone she would persecute another over.

Her emails got leaked out because she, cleverly, used her family's private email server instead of the secure and official State Department emails, and because of this clever move, her emails were leaked, which she has denied has happened......

What was leaked? "We must destroy Syria for Israel"

Edward Snowden, a man I am not a fan of, leaked vital information, now they want to persecute him, and knowing the USA, possibly execute him.

Because of her last name she can run for President, because of his last name Snowden runs for safety..... fair? Not exactly.

Then there's Trump, a racist, homophobic, sexist pillock, who is rich thanks to his grand father, and father.

He's friend's with Vladimir Putin, which would be a good thing if Trump wasn't as thick, and Putin, should Trump win, would take advantage of.

He see women as a play thing for his own amusement, a bit like Hilary's husband.

Then there's his daft ideas to build walls to keep people out, and have them pay for this wall.

I haven't really listened to the debates between these two because they are the two sides of corruption.

One thick, the other smart, and I can't decide which one is the less evil of the two.... can you?

Child Refugees

Should child refugees from the Calais jungle be helped? Absolutely!

Should we, Britain, be taking them in, in order to give children safety and security? Of course!

However some of these children who have been accepted, some of them don't look like children.

Now it may be the case, like in mine, where they look older than their years.

If they are children, and they have come from war torn Syria, then yes the travelling and the worrying will have aged some of them.

However, if it turns out that we have accepted adults posing as children, then what about the real children who are being left behind?

What about the children who literally are just that, children of 8 or 10, living on their own, or trying to look after younger siblings/ family members, and are stuck in the Calais jungle because of fraudsters?

When people were talking about bringing over child refugees, I honestly thought I was going to be seeing babies through to 10/14 year olds, not teenagers/ men.

Again, I will re-iterate that these teenagers might be 14 years old, but the circumstances in which they have found themselves has aged them.

Child refugees needing help I am all for helping, adult men posing as such....... sickens me, I hope I am wrong.

There'll Never Be Unity If Corbyn Stays Silent On Jackie Walker

Jeremy Corbyn called for unity within the Labour party from all divisions.

From the old relics of the New Labour era, to the new Labour supporters who've since joined to make sure Corbyn was re-elected as leader.

It'll never, ever happen, and here's why.

Quite rightly Jeremy Corbyn called all forms of anti-Semitism "evil". Absolutely correct.

Yet, a day before his big speech, the vice chairman of Momentum, the pro-Corbyn think tank, had this to say about the Holocaust day:

"In terms of Holocaust day, wouldn't it be wonderful if Holocaust day was open to all peoples who experienced the Holocaust."

To which the audience shout back at her "it is." But this wasn't a good enough answer and so she carried on:

"Well actually in practice, it's not actually advocated and circulated"

Again the audience tell her "it is." Again this isn't good enough and she carried on.

Not only did she spout anti-Semitic views at the Labour conference, she continued to on social media websites such as Twitter and Facebook:

The Labour's party's silence after such a speech from Corbyn is deafening, why? Well a few days before the Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell, had this to say of Jackie Walker.

Not only that a few months ago when Jackie Walker was originally suspended for her anti-Semitic views, Owen Jones, the Guardian columnist, actually campaigned for her suspension to be stopped, that the accusation of her being anti-Semitic was "ludicrous".

Nor Jeremy Corbyn, or his Shadow Chancellor have said anything on Jackie Walker's disgusting comments, and their silence is deafening.

It proves that he was just saying words, that has not intension of acting on them, that he doesn't really want unity, he just wants people who agree with him, Jackie Walker, a close personal friend of Mr Corbyn's, definitely agrees with him, and he with her.

Unity in Labour? Yeah right!

Let's Set The Record Straight

Immigration is a key issue today.

Labour's leader Jeremy Corbyn, has said he won't put any controls on the amount of immigrants entering Britain, despite the fact that we've just voted to leave the EU, with one of the main reasons being high uncontrolled levels of immigration.

Good to see you're listening Jez!

Anyway, there seems to be a myth, or an attempt by the left to put words in people's mouths.

For instance, a lot of them say we're angry at the actual immigrants entering our country.

We're not, we're angry at the government, whether it be the last Labour govt, or the Cameron led Tory govt, but for me my anger is especially directed at Labour.

Labour opened our borders to anyone and everyone, with no set limits.

Labour sent out "search parties" for more and more immigrants to come work and live here.

Labour failed to build the required infrastructure to accommodate these people, from housing, to schools, and hospitals, they didn't build enough.

Labour failed to make sure our economy was stable enough to keep on taking in the levels of immigration that we were receiving by ignoring leading economics about the 2008 crash, and carried on spending, and borrowing.

So no, I am not angry at an asylum seeker who's just come from the war torn Middle East.

Neither am I angry at someone who just wants a better life, which is something we should be able to offer.

I am angry at the uncontrolled levels of immigration, the uncontrolled borders of who may be entering or leaving our country.

I am angry that our governments would rather please everyone else, but not the people who voted for them.

I am angry that both Labour and the Tories seem to want to stick their fingers in their ears, automatically call us racists, and assume we're xenophobic because it suits their cause far better, than to listen to us, their employers.

I am angry that the left assume they know the reasons of our concerns without actually asking.

Please stop assuming and start listening, otherwise you'll anger a lot of people which is a dangerous emotion to be ignoring.

Labour Will Never Heal Itself Under Corbyn

Labour is weirdly parodying the sinking of the luxury cruise liner theTitanic.

When Corbyn first stood to become the new Labour leader, after Ed Miliband's pathetic General Election result last year, it was almost like the looks out's seeing the ice-berg too late.

When support for Corbyn grew, it was the Titanic taking far to long to turn to avoid the impending collision.

When Corbyn won, that's when disaster struck, and the Titanic and the iceberg scrapped along side each other.

Since then Labour's sinking is taking far longer than it did for the Titanic to go down, but the motions are still the same.

Currently Labour is at this stage of sinking:

This split in Labour is now far too deep to ever mend, what's been said and done on both sides of the argument are far too personal and nasty to ever stick back together, it's far to late to stick a nicely pictured plaster to heal the rift.

Corbyn doesn't really care though, he'd be glad to see the back of the "moderate" MP's such as Owen Smith, and Angela Eagle, or even Jess Philips.

But what he doesn't realise is that despite the split, as a whole Titanic sank to the bottom of the ocean taking it's captain with it, for treasure hunters, and historians to gaze at every now and then through the darkness.

Labour is heading for the same horrible, but unmissable fate.

Anyone within range, or still on board will go down, naturally, they'll end up landing in different places but as a whole, Labour will sink, and become a tragic story of the past.

How has Labour got to this disastrous stage? Well, it's not all on Corbyn's lack of response to his own ex Shadow Cabinet members.

Before Angela Eagle resigned she had apparently called, emailed and texted the leader, but had had no response at all, she was only his Shadow Foreign Secretary.

His leadership as a whole has been pretty calamitous, his first PLP meeting was, according to one MP, a "fucking shambles."

Losing the vote on Airstrikes over Syria where 60 Labour MPs' voted with the government.

McDonnell's "Mao's little red book" gag......

Anti-semitism within the party, and his failure to deal with it.

The failed campaign to remain in the EU (admittedly not as much of a failure as Cameron's campaign).

These are to name but a few of his own failings, yet of course, he and his supporters will blame the world before they take any responsibility.

Corbyn's First Year

Jeremy Corbyn's first year as Labour leader has been......... fascinating to say the least.

Let's start from the beginning, the Labour leadership bid, it was a given thing that another Blairite/ Brownite/ Milibandite/ a mix of a three New Labour type leader would win.

Then Jeremy Corbyn entered the race.

Oh how he stole the "moderates" limelight.

What the New Labour politicians seems to forget is, to my generation, they're old news, we've lived it, received it's education, listened to their drivel.

Then there was Corbyn, a man we hadn't really heard of, a man who's politics my generation aren't used to at all.

He was unshaven, he was sow at answering questions, he didn't speak the political jargon, he smiled, he looked human.

Here is his first interview with supporter Owen Jones. Look how calm and relaxed he is, despite the fact he had just completed his morning run.

In fact when he was on the radio having a good deabte with his fellow leadership bidders, he was the calmest.

Perhaps because, despite what the polls were saying, he thought there wasn't a hope in hell he would win.

Well, he did win, and it's been a rather turbulent 12 months, let's go through his successes and failures so far as leader.

1. He won with a landsliding majority to become the new Labour leader.

2. He failed to get a woman into one the "top five" shadow cabinet roles, all of them went to men.

3. His past came back to bit him: e.g his close association with ex IRA leader Gerry Adams, calling terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah "friends" and inviting them for chats at the Houses of Parliament.

4. Upsetting his MPs in his first PLP meeting as Labour leader, this ended up with one MP telling journalists the meeting was a "complete f***ing shambles", another said it was a "joke" whilst one female MP told Diane Abbott to "f**k off".

5. Losing the vote on whether or not we should airstrike Syria...... Ed Miliband won his.

6. His Shadow Chancellor, and good friend, John McDonnell's gag of "Chairman Mao's little red book" didn't exactly go well, in fact it was a bit of a lead balloon.

7. The EU referendum didn't exactly go to plan for anyone, David Cameron ended up resigning, and has today resigned as an MP, but for Jeremy Corbyn it was just the tip of the iceberg.

8. Resignation after resignation, Jeremy faced over 40 resignations from his shadow cabinet/ ministerial team, not exactly a good look.

9. After the resignations, Jeremy faced a vote of no confidence  from 172 of his MPs, bearing in mind Labour only have 232, that's a huge majority against him, only 40 voted with confidence.

10. Leadership bid against Jeremy Corbyn was launched firstly by Angela Eagle, who was quickly out of the running, but Owen Smith soon followed suit and is currently running against Jeremy to become new Labour leader.

11. Anti-Semitism has plagued the Labour leader ever since Ken Livingstone was elected to the NEC. For some reason Livingstone can't help himself but mention Hitler's name whenever he's interviewed on TV or radio. Secondly, the press release for the inquest into anti-semitism within Labour had a Jewish Labour MP leave in tears.

Sadly the only upside I can point out was his landslide win last year, and I am sure he will get that again later this month.

Other than that, he has had more failures in one year, than what most have in five, and who's to blame? Quite obviously, and self evidently, it's Jeremy himself, or his team around him.

Who can sort this out? Jeremy himself, and his team around him, so come on Labour, sort yourselves out, and give us a genuine opposition.
