Interesting Thought

Posted by | Posted in Random | Posted on 23-10-2009

Not much going on at the moment. Oh, it was my birthday this week, and I’m celebrating with a weekend of drunkeness oop norf. But other than that, it’s been a pretty average week.

Oh, I was caught using an expired gym membership this week, too, although I didn’t know at the time that it had expired. Not only that, but when I paid the £300-odd pounds for renewing a year’s membership, I realised I’d been signing in using the wrong membership card for at least a year, and what I’d done was renew the membership of someone else (whose card I’d been using). Someone that I know for a fact hadn’t set foot in a gym in at least a year. Still, it’s sorted now.

Anyways, as is usual for a Friday afternoon (right before cracking open a celebratory tinny to christen the weekend) I was bored and found myself reading one of David Mitchell’s Guardian articles. The basic gyst of the article is that it’s not politicians who are the hypocrites, as you’ll hear many an Average Joe say, it’s us. We want to have our cake and eat it; we refuse to listen to those who sometimes tell the truth, even if it’s not what we want to hear (enter Nick Griffin on Question Time yesterday); and despite knowing deep down that we can’t have it all, we still refuse to vote for politicans unless they promise is that we can have it all.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m no BNP supporter. I know as little about what the BNP stand for as I know about any of the other political parties. But what I don’t do is buy into all the propoganda that the tabloids, and other disputable news outlest, spit out. I don’t listen to a word they say about any political party, let alone the BNP. What I do listen to, however, are the independent reports, like the one that came out this week, that state the population of the UK will rise to 70 million in the next 20 or so years; the primary reason being immigration. Sounds like just the sort of thing Nick Griffin should be using in his little speeches.

I’d like to think that I’m the sort of person who doesn’t really give a monkey’s about what other people think with regards to certain things. Like most people, I’m pretty sure I’ve grown up liking things, or doing things, or whatever, that other people disagree with or don’t like for some reason, and I ended up getting some stick for it. As such, I don’t really care what the media will try to have me believe… about anything. Politicians in particular. I agree that the whole expenses scandal was wrong, but I also think that if anyone else thought they could get away with it, they’d mostly likely be ordering a new mote for their garden as well.

The point is, I don’t care why Nick Griffin and his band of hillbillies want to stop immigration, for example. I don’t care if he’s racist or not. I don’t care if any other politician is, come to think of it. I only go by what I see, and what I see is an NHS being pushed to it’s limits, unable to cope with the influx of patients and lack of medical personal or finance; a miserable education system, with classes at stuffing point and teachers being treated for record levels of mental illnesses; and a complete lack of jobs and motivation for three million people (and rising). So if an independent report says that immigration is the number one cause of these problems (i.e. more people = a higher strain on the system) then it sounds logical to stop (or, at least, slow significantly) the rate of immigration. In my eyes, it’s got nothing to do with race, religion, ethnicity, background, gender, or anything else, it’s about doing what needs to be done to keep the country running smoothly, and the people in it happy.

Of course, the idiots outside the BBC studios last night didn’t seem to have the same opinion. And unfortunately, it’s these media-brainwashed, sheep-like yobs that form the majority of the vote, and hence dictate who gets into power.

I don’t trust any politician really, as none of them have ever stood up and told the truth about anything of worth. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – they all just tell us what they think the majority of us whant to hear, because that will no doubt get them the majority of the votes. The only person who comes close to telling it like it is is Nick Griffin, and although he goes overboard with his “solutions” and (possibly) has the wrong motives behind his ideas, in this case, then ends justify the means. And if, after four years in power, people decide that the country is better off for putting Griffin in power, but they don’t like the price that we paid, then they can simply vote for someone else next time. But no… everybody wants it all, they want it now, and they don’t want to have to pay for it.
