Assisting The Electorate To Wake Up To The UK Government's Discrimination Against The People Of England.

The Lunatics Are Taking Over The Asylum...

Reading through various blogs and web sites today I was struck once more by just how barmy and utterly sick things are today. Plaid Cymru's Adam Price has been giving his views as Wales Online goes into overdrive, with an article beginning: "huge spending cuts imposed by the UK Government on the Welsh Assembly will seriously damage public services in Wales, it was claimed last night."

But Wales is heavily subsidised by England anyway. And has much higher spending via the Barnett Formula.

And never a murmur or whimper of concern do the Welsh make about the situation in England, with Gordon Brown swiping £2bn from the English NHS budget, the budget then being £2bn underspent and the continuance of huge cutbacks in health and social care by the corporate Primary Care Trusts and the deceitful Supporting People organisation, whilst nursing and care staff are forced to sign secrecy clauses and the public is kept in ignorance.

UNITED Kingdom? What UNITED Kingdom? Where is Welsh concern for its fellow United Kingdomers?

“We already believe that Wales is seriously under-funded, and these cuts will make things even worse." says Mr Price.

So, you want more money from England do you, Mr Price? And then we'll get Rhodri Morgan supplying more luxuries to all and sundry and making further comments like: "We have never actually managed to make the English jealous before... but we have done it!" - as he did about prescription charges, dropped in Wales with the aid of English money via the Barnett Formula (more here).

Just what we need.

Says Mr Price: “Wales is a special case, we are a socially-disadvantaged nation, and it doesn’t seem fair that we should shoulder the same level of cuts seen across the UK.”

Wales disadvantaged? With free prescriptions and loads of other goodies denied the great unwashed in England? Bollocks, Mr Price. And Wales should not be subjected to the "same level of cuts seen across the UK"? Do you mean ENGLAND?

In this instance, the UK exists for the benefit of the Welsh elite. And the Welsh elite have no concern for other "UK" citizens.

Meanwhile, up in Scotland, we get the same situation, with Scots looking to take control of another stretch of English river (details here).

Exactly the same thing. Scotland unfairly takes from England, but there is to be no give and take.

Then we have Gordon Brown writing England out of existence yet again as the prospect of the dreaded "Team GB" football team raises its ugly head. From the BBC:

The challenge, he [Brown] said, was getting a UK team to compete in 2012 without compromising the independence of the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish football associations.

Independence from what? The UK? And what about English fans - the majority of whom are just as against Team GB?

The whole UK project is now being run expressly for the so-called "Celtic" elite - and the national bodies in Scotland and Wales appear to be staffed by one-eyed, selfish gits with no idea of what being "United" means. Some, however, have every notion of what it is like to be part of an unhealthy, smug and bigoted clique. Remember SNP member Donald Anderson, so concerned that the odious BNP had members in his own and his fellow "Celtic" nations?

Dear folks,

The entire membership of the BNP has been leaked. While this is illegal (it couldn’t happen to nicer people), it gives us the opportunity to vet our own membership from this list.

There are a large number of BNP members listed in Scotland , Wales , Cornwall and the north of Ireland . I don’t think we want any of them near any of the organisations we are in…

But do it quickly, this may not be up long.

The only reason Mr Anderson could possibly have been appealing to the county of Cornwall, and Northern Ireland and Wales, whilst excluding England, was the exclusive, white tribe Celtic myth. Scotland has no other links with these other areas.

So there you have it.

When I first heard the Fun Boy Three singing "The Lunatics Have Taken Over The Asylum" back in the early '80s, I nodded sagely - convinced that Thatcher, Reagan and their cohorts were mad, bad and in fact the embodiment of evil.

But nowadays the song (minus the cowboy comment!) seems far more appropriate than way back then....

I see a clinic full of cynics
Who want to twist the peoples' wrist
They're watching every move we make
We're all included on the list

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum

No nuclear the cowboy told us
And who am i to disagree
'Cos when the madman flips the switch
The nuclear will go for me

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum

I've seen the faces of starvation
But i just can not see the points
'Cos there's so much food here today
That no one wants to take away

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum

The lunatics have taken over the asylum - take away my right to choose
The lunatics have taken over the asylum - take away my point of view

The lunatics have taken over the asylum

The lunatics have taken over the asylum - take away my dignity,
Take these things away from me

The lunatics have taken over the asylum

The lunatics have taken over the asylum - take away my family,

Take away the right to speak...

Big hat-tips to Toque, The CEP News Blog, and The Witanagemot Club.
