Government monopoly

Southern Ireland have found that they are in need of more money to bail them out of the recession that has been thrust upon us all, and Britain is considering supplying some of that money.
We are also going to fork out 14 million pounds between 16 men who were imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay detention camp. The latter being a ridiculous amount to pay to men who are suspected of terrorism, even though they might not have carried out any of the acts......... well not that we could prove anyway. These men were not just picked at random off the streets to make it look as if our security forces were worth their salt.
These men had been doing enough to warrant their arrest by showing some connection to terrorist groups and through this more acts of terrorism was prevented. Just because they did not commit any of these acts themselves does not mean that they were not involved in some way or would have carried out some had they not been detained.

It does puzzle me somewhat given that Britain is in the worst financial position since the second world war, or possibly ever, as to where we can find the money to bail out Ireland, pay millions to terror suspects and to compensate criminals who exploit the European Law of Human Rights.

It is obvious that the government deal in monopoly money taken from a bottomless pit, while WE the public have to work with real money, and budget our earnings to suit our income, an act governments around the world are incapable of carrying out.

The markets have to rise and fall to make it possible for the speculators to make money, be it monopoly or real, and if these markets keep on the up it brings the threat of prosperity to the poorer classes, so to keep us in our place recessions are concocted which gives the rich another stepping stone towards their next million.

The answer to any construed recession is to tax the poorer members of the community heavily which allows the rich to get richer, and knocking us back to square one again, all the time having been brainwashed into thinking it has to be done to repay money the government borrowed to keep Britain and other countries viable.

The cost of living rises every year and the amount of money our governments work with also rises, so much so that the astronomical amounts being mentioned now are so ridiculous that soon we will all be using monopoly money, as the point rapidly approaches when the financial wealth of the world is less than we are spending.

David Camerons visit to China

DAVOS/SWITZERLAND, 29JAN10 - David Cameron, Le...Image via WikipediaSome people in Britain are faulting David Cameron on his visit to China for concentrating his efforts on promoting business first instead of pointing out the faults regarding China's "human rights laws" or rather the lack of them.

If China is watching the disastrous attempts at justice in Europe that the European Courts of Human Rights has forced upon us then they must be disgusted at the very thought of Cameron, or any other European leader suggesting that they follow in their footsteps.

I am all for the human rights laws when they are used for the purpose they were introduced, but when criminals are the main beneficiaries then its time we looked at our own pathetic rules before preaching to others, no matter how cruel we seem to think their laws are.

I do not approve of some of the things China's dictatorship dishes out, but lessons could be learned from both parties on justice, as China at least treats crimes like rape and murder with the contempt they deserve and punish these offenders which make their streets a safer place to be than ours.
The victims of these crimes in China get justice which is more than can be said for us, so anyone who expects China to fall into our ways should think again, because the example Europe has set in that respect has made them a laughing stock rather than act to follow.

Once we start to use the "human rights laws" to benefit victims, and stop criminals abusing the system, then we might get countries like China and their like, to sit up and take notice, but until then we should keep our heads down and start protecting our own countrymen.

I am well aware of the political prisoners that they have in China, jailed for speaking against the regime, and for others who are punished for similar beliefs, but through time these dictatorships will soften and see the error of their ways as others have, though hopefully they wont go to the other extreme like us and have the criminals doing the dictating.

When these people commit their crimes they are well aware of the punishment it warrants (or should warrant) so they should forfeit all claims to the Human Rights Laws and all the other luxuries that are loaded upon them by the disillusioned do-gooders we seem to breed these days.

It used to be that the majority were catered for but nowadays its the minority who are listened to and it is taking us down a road we will never recover from if we let it continue.

By all means HAVE a human rights law but make sure it is the decent human beings who benefit from it, and not the scum who are allowed to abuse our system.
Sort that out and you will get the respect from other countries who might THEN listen to you, but until that time, realise how disgusted the majority of Europeans are at the misuse of this law never mind outsiders.
