MALALA—a statement of the failure of religion:
religion that fails to pro-actively promote the absolute equality of male and female is fundamentally immoral and unfit for decent society.
There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:26-28)

ON THE EU, SEE MOVING ON

GENERAL AND COMMENTARY INDEX
THE EU QUESTION
and MOVING ON

NEVER FORGET
It was Labour and the Lib/Dems that denied us the political vote that turned commercial agreements on trade into political authoritarian diktat. As  Churchill said "Trust the British people". Labour refused to do so and the Tories took too long to get round to doing so. Neither presented a state of competent argument.
We would have had a perfectly harmonious relationship with the EU had France not panicked over the greater empire and commonwealth that we created, for which reason they denied us earlier entry and ensured the rationality and logic we would have brought was excluded from the EU's basic structure, leading them away from proper objectives.

Monday 9th July 2018
We are still at the stage when strategy is all and substance is minimal. In the miniscule we are proving why the concept of the EU is fundamentally wrong: it straight jackets that which naturally is fluid and adaptable, wilfully causing contortions contrary to the natural order.

“What is missing from the modern cultural emphasis on rampant individualism is the deep need for shared lives, for strong links to each other in order to be happy.”

THE TIPPING POINT!

A breeze plays with the curtains; a welcome coolness entices entry outside, necessitated by a surgery visit due to technology not catching up with human interaction, aggravated by manufacturers having technical difficulties requiring substitutes which then themselves get substituted because that product too is encountering technical difficulties in manufacture. Coincidence, or are we really that seriously falling to pieces as a country?
      Wimbledon causes programme disruption which, for the moment, is just general chat and reminiscences. I'll be watching shortly and hopefully be able to face my tooth extraction, in plant of adapted denture to accommodate new hole better than I was fearing for the next few days of "settling down", causing a thought for those around the world not so fortunate, including America where many are unable to afford basic medicine.
      I raise the perennial question, developing in my mind since childhood, by what set of circumstances or choice did I end up here, in this environment, to do what? I am at that time in life when such questions must be more assiduously addressed.


Extraordinary that so much of the month has passed and only two web posts in that month, although much interaction has taken place on Facebook, showing an interactiveness for which I do not have time to follow through on here, especially as I am still encountering around 5,000 visits a month on my expressed views, which currently are not necessarily views on Brexit.

Summer days, as childhood remembers. A quietude of soul and body, in unity with a wholesome world of peace and contentment and a sense that time is eternal. Age knows that is folly, fear increases as one realises the ever gathering shortness of life ahead and one realises how much more one could have done in the time since... but what value those undefined moments when one paused 'to be', as I do now, contented with eternity. "Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present..." Eliot, Burnt Norton, Four Quartets.
      That last line is particularly apt. Aggravated by my perpetual tiredness the month has been preoccupied in making good a diverse family gathering at a favourite haunt of mine over half a century, Pendley Manor. For half that time I was involved in diverse roles with its annual open air Shakespeare Festival, during the early part of which it was essentially still a family home.
      Being a family gathering the event covered a wide range of ages and a mixing of people who had not met for quite some time, literally at both ends of the 'age of life' scale, remembering those, too young, no longer with us, although personally known to me since, through meetings with friends graced with the skill of mediumship.

All missing the point. Nothing rational about not controlling your immigration, managing your resources to meet the unknown instead of your known population when you have already recognised you cannot cope with the people you were letting in originally, the Commonwealth you created. The EU is rationally making the same irrational mistake religion made, directly defying the Flexibility, Adaptability and Malleability essential to keep up with the reality of continually changing Life.

 

PREVIOUS MONTHS 
It was Labour's socialism that determined acceptance of the EU's diktats without argument because it took away their accountability for what they knew the country would not accept. All that is happening now is the rational debate Labour were not capable of holding.

PARLIAMENTARY WORK AHEAD

Boundary clarification. How many seats and what preferred size of constituency population?

Proportional representation. Which system?

House of Lords? Should it be elected or appointed and upon what classification? Originally based on the realities of the day: Spiritual; Legal; Defence; land ownership; hereditary entitlement.

Today? Spiritual but across the faiths (define), including pure secularism/humanitarianism (all appointed/elected by their respective churches); Legal, as is; Political (variable by proven worth, such as past ministers or retired professional senior civil servants and limited party nominations); representatives of Capital, Financial Services, Labour (all either retired or active, appointed or elected by their respective accredited bodies); Education (ditto precedents stated); Health (ditto); Other?

The whole re-viewable by a statutory committee reporting with recommendations to parliament on a ten yearly basis to cover relevance of classifications in the then current world. Modus operandi as at present.
