Militant or Unit-ant?

Back in 1992, whilst I was working on a hospital site, I watched in admiration as a colony of ants ‘moved house’ across a public pathway. Some new kerbstones were being laid, and the work had disturbed the site of their nest. Within 20 minutes, literally thousands of eggs had been shifted to a new underground home. Each individual insect, able to carry more than its own weight, working as part of the team, they had soon made a clearly visible path across the soil.

Now, in 2018, we have a similar situation in European politics: some unforeseen upheaval has occurred, some unauthorized bullies have been scheming to alter the pathway, putting down some new boundaries. It has been a long time in the planning, the changes are almost complete, but the upheaval has aroused the populace.  In dozens of countries across Europe, in thousands of cities and towns, there are millions of resid-ants who now see that the restructuring was not a sound idea.

Here, in the UK, the nation is angry. There’s a groundswell of discontent, but what can be done about it?  If we start punching each others’ noses on the street, yes, that’ll make us all FEEL a lot better, but you do realize that TM is already squirreling our own military off into PESCO , so that a milit-ant rebellion can be squashed?  We need to work as a team, just like that team of insects, each of us capable of carrying part of the load..

Here, at LIVINGSTONES UK, we are the ‘northern’ arm of DEMOCRACY 17.4, bringing together all those who know that this 60-odd-year conspiracy is just plain WRONG. If you will work with us, please send an email to ‘info@livingstones.uk‘, leaving your NAME, and your CITY/TOWN , so that we can put you in contact with others in your area, who feel as we all do about our lousy government system. There is a plan, there is a manifesto. Party politics is dead. We are doing this another way, and we need you to join us, to help us succeed. Thank you.


What are we fighting for?

Here we go again, the arrogance of the Tory leadership, promises that “Brexit means Brexit” post-referendum, spends the next two years ensuring that the nation doesn’t get what it asked for, and this morning, we hear that British soldiers are dispatched off to Bosnia – with the hated ‘EU Star circle‘ on their uniforms. Isn’t it time to face these liars down and get rid of them. Read on:



Vanity of vanities

I’m using the Facebook system less and less these days. If ever a system was devised to keep the sheep in the pen, this is it. This morning, I dipped in briefly, to look at the details  there of a name which had come to my attention. I am told there that this person has over 2,000 ‘friends’, each of which has, on average, more than 1,000 ‘friends’ of their own.  It tells him nothing really. How many of the ‘friends’ we have against our Facebook ID could we actually call on, if we needed real help?

I often say, phlegmatically, that I have a recurring nightmare, in which I discover to my horror that Mark Zuckerberg turns out to be George Soros’s grandson.. What is for sure is that this diabolically cunning invention is proving to be a bigger time-waster than Baird’s gogglebox.

There were said to be more than 17.4 million of us UK citizens who, when David Cameron finally acceded to incessant pestering, graciously granting the sheeple a choice, surprised him by not obeying his instructions to vote REMAIN – in the EU. When he retired to nurse his bruised ego, had he possessed any shred of social conscience, he would have asked one of the 138 others of the Tories – who had said ‘Let’s get OUT’ – to pick up the reins and steer us away from Brussels. Then we may just have had some slight respect for ‘Old Sarum’. No chance, we end up with Teresa May-be.

Folks, if we trust her, we’ll all finish up, at best in BRINO, at worst, we’ll all be running around with our EU membership number tattooed on our foreheads. (I suppose at least then, the despised Burkha will have been declared ‘illegal’). We are going to have to dig much deeper than that, to get this nation on any sort of solid foundation again.

As I see it, we can all shilly-shally around, finding theoretical ‘friends’, thinking that ‘we shall be heard for our much tapping’, or each of us can take a really brave step into the unknown, and send our name, town and email address to ‘info@livingstones.uk’ and there become a part of the move to re-unite the millions who voted to LEAVE the corrupt EU – a failed vanity project, if ever there was one. There, you may just find out, who is actually ready to stand back-to-back, shoulder-to-shoulder with you, now the Thought Police have started restricting our right to meet and discuss anything more weighty than the soccer results or the weather.
