Ten New Years Revolutions for 2011

Slightly adapted from here

As the United Kingdom edges closer to becoming a third world country; anger, frustration, and cynicism continue to mount in the minds of the British population. This pessimism seems warranted as authentic political solutions appear to be in short supply in our corporate and welfare state.

The democratic political system is now clearly run by crony cartelism. The multinational banks have hijacked the economy and are openly looting the public. Mounting and impossible-to-pay off debt is crippling government. The entire spectrum of our rights continues to degrade. Crimes that would land regular citizens in jail are now openly being committed by the elite and their organisations with no justice. And perhaps most telling, the power structure is establishing a control grid to eliminate due process for the Internet and beyond to stifle any dissent.

Given the current situation, it can seem impossible to affect real change. However, the exact opposite is the case. The only reason the system is maintained is because the majority still acquiesce to it. However, change won’t come by electing new establishment politicians, because no matter how noble they may be they still must play the corrupt game. Change won’t come through violent protests or offensive cyber hacktivism, as that only invites and justifies the creeping police state. We must stop accepting and supporting the system, individually, in order to change it.

Because our representative democracy has become a fraud, and the media and courts are clearly shills for the oligarchs, our only action appears to be non-violent rebellion; one person and community at a time. We can expose the crimes and immorality of the corporate state through civil disobedience and conscientious objection. We can punish multinational companies who commit flagrant fouls on humanity and the environment by boycotting them. Additionally, we can peacefully regain our liberty by becoming less dependent on the system for our basic needs.

Here are ten solutions through non-violent activism:

1. Buy Local Food: One of the most powerful cartels that has their tentacles into government is the food cartel. Sainsbury, Tesco, all are either politicians themselves or in party funding up to the eyeballs. Boycott them. The best way to conquer this cartel is by eating local; produce your own food, join and contribute to local cooperatives, and engage your neighbours and community for more local food solutions. Local co-ops are also a great place to trade locally crafted goods and even services.

2. Become More Self-Sufficient: Our modern society has made us dependent on something or someone other than ourselves for most necessities such as electricity, food, water, medicine, security, and education. This dependence puts us at the direction or disposal of the cartel state. Therefore, the only entity that has the power to grant us liberty is ourselves; and we can take back our independence through self-sufficiency. Being self-sufficient means learning skills that will help you and your family survive economic downturns or other emergencies. These skills may also help you to be less dependent on your job as they’ll make you a useful independent producer. Lead your neighbourhood and community toward production and away from dependence.

3. Get Healthier: The increasing pace of life seems to offer a wealth of distractions from the importance of living a truly healthy and free life. Our modern world offers easy choices like fast-food in place of fresh produce; TV in place of reading, exercise, or meditation; Internet social networks in place of meaningful personal relationships, etc. Identify the areas lacking in your own life and resolve to make the necessary changes that will increase your physical fitness, mental acuity, and your spiritual evolution. These three areas are what truly sustain us in both good times and bad — not smart phones, Xboxes, X Factor, and the virtual world.

4. Buy Silver and Gold: We desperately need a monetary revolution before the Euro experiment completely collapses. Like all revolutions this must start from a groundswell of rebellious action. A good place to start is to convert your devaluing paper money to physical gold and silver. This will punish the banks, as well as protect your assets. Furthermore, if paper monies continues to collapse, silver and gold may well become a viable currency in society once again. Buying junk silver is something anyone can afford to do and is highly recommended.

5. Expose the Agenda: The “agenda” is one of consolidation of wealth, power, and control in every facet imaginable. The international elite are approaching near one-world control, which they call full spectrum dominance of economies and societies. In other words; national, local, and individual sovereignty is all but gone. It is extremely important to engage your local community, especially community leaders and police, to reiterate their obligation to serve us, the local community , and not to follow illegal Statutes. Above all, do not give in to the temptation of apathy as you begin to learn more about the systems of control. These systems first count on your ignorance, then they count on laziness. Finally, say what you stand for such as peace, liberty, and genuine justice with even more force than shouting about what you oppose.

6. Boycott: In the U.K it has become obvious that a system has taken hold which is economically designed for one thing: consumption. This is the value that each person has been given from birth. So, one key way to assert your power and value in such a system is to vote with your wallet. Every purchase you make either contributes to, or boycotts this corporatist structure. Become aware of who the real owners are and what inhumane practices are behind the products you purchase, so that you can make intelligent choices that support your health and promote justice. Additionally, it is important to learn the true contents of the products you buy, so that you don’t fall prey to slick advertising and corporate misdirection.

7. Local Politics: Forget wasting any of your energy and resources on Westminster politics — they have sold out long ago to the higher authorities that fund their multi-million pound campaigns. Instead, get involved in council politics and community initiatives. The future will be built from the ground up, starting right in your own neighbourhood. Local politics is where you can affect tangible changes. Each minor victory will send shock waves to other small communities and the country as a whole, so be sure to document the steps you have taken to achieve victory, then share your story for others to emulate.

8. Military refusal: Do not contribute to fraudulent wars, and do not succumb to the pressure of feeling “unpatriotic.” There are countless groups of Afhanistan war veterans who have seen through the government lies that have led to unnecessary deaths, as well as the financial destruction of the country. There is, in fact, no more patriotic action that can be taken than to demand that our military be used properly to strengthen the country, rather than to weaken it. For some, there is absolutely no excuse for war, ever, and merely the act of showing up contributes to this affliction. It is a profound resolution of courage to live by your convictions. So, if opposing the fraudulent wars is your main issue, file as a conscientious objector and contribute to peace instead of war. As Gandhi said, “There is no path to peace; peace is the path.”

9. Don’t Use Banks: The banks have proven to be some of the most immoral, dare we say “evil,” institutions on the planet. Besides their Ponzi-style Wall Street casino and mortgage/foreclosure fraud, they also profit heavily from wars, misery, and debt. We can at least vow not to take on any new bank financing of any kind — mortgages, credit cards, or car loans, etc. Where possible, bank with local building societies instead of the big banks that make up the cartel. I don't even have a bank account anymore. I refuse to play.

10. Tax Resistance: Becoming a tax resister is a hardcore action of civil disobedience that comes with serious consequences. It is your duty to AVOID taxation. It is conscientous objection to theft by the State. You earned it, you keep it. If you disagree with what the State does, stop feeding it the money it needs to do what it does. Wear the badge of tax avoider with pride.

All that remains to say is I wish all our readers a healthy, happy, prosperous New Year. Whatever you want, you are the only one that can make it happen. It starts with YOU. Be the change.

the Children

"How much fucking public debt have I been handed?"

It continues. No sooner does our glorious leader apply the handbrake to the decision not to fund Bookstart, a fake charity run by Fabians* to give "free" books to the feckless at a cost of £13M a year, do the next bunch of Fabians spot the opportunity to indoctrinate our children.

* the authors have a spectacular array of careers,eg: "writer in residence at Holloway Prison" and produce instruction guides for slaves.

Yes, the magnificent E Learning foundation, a quango set up by Blair to reward his Fabian cronies has kicked off demanding that all children be provided with Internet access at home.

E Learning Trustees

Rt Hon Baroness Morris (ex Labour)
Lord Mitchell (Labour IT advisor)
Lord Willis (LibDem)
Rt Hon Lord Knight (Labour)
Mike Butler (Head of Djanogly City Academy, Nottingham)
David Butler OBE Head of fake charity

Need more? Here

An unelected Quango of Fabians, desperate to push their version of "learning" into the homes of our children whilst sending you the bill. disgusting.

The sooner Govt, elected or not, gets the hell out of education, the better. Never trust a Politician with the education of your child.

In their perverted world, you are merely raising it to either tax viability or state dependency

Monday, 27 December 2010


As work and twitter take more and more of my time, and this blog descends into a personal toilet wall for Ron Broxted (no, I still have no idea what it is about, nor wish to), perhaps it's time to look at what has been a dramatic year.

Firstly, you lot got a man out of prison. You told the state that it was unjust and you rectified the situation. You freed Nick Hogan. Congratulate yourselves, you deserve it. If nothing else, you touched a life in the finest way possible, with liberty

Then we had the General Election and you funded my campaign to place myself amongst the Cambridge pigeons that would rule us. You made electoral history by sponsoring the first totally anonymous candidate for Parliament. No one knew who I was, where I lived or what I looked like. We proved a point that the system is broken. We destroyed the campaign of Daniel Zeichner (Lab), and I hope you had as much fun as I did ridiculing those who would enslave us.

We have corrupt politicians in court, riots on the streets caused by Politicians lying to the electorate, we've had Politicians thrown out of their seats for lying and a corrupt authoritarian Government thrown out of office (no, I refuse to use the word "power")

The change of rulers has brought nothing new. We are still taxed to the point of riot, we are still herded like sheep by the Slavemaster, our lives monitored, controlled, measure, censored and indexed by the all powerful State, as if we were the property of it, instead of the owners.

The lobbyists and Unions, along with corporations still dictate where more than half the contents of your wallets will go, the great and the good still reward themselves with the fruit of your labours, your risks, taken by force under threat of violence. You are still born a "suspect"

It isn't going to change until we change, and we won't. This year has shown that I will not change a damn thing through this blog, and as a stubborn bastard refusing to change myself to fit the "great scheme", my course of action is to retreat further and further from "interference", reliance and governance.

Most of my fellow citizens are happy to count the blessings of X Factor, easy credit and a "normal" life, safe in the knowledge that Politicians will save them from themselves. The Welfare state will continue to provide the warm comfort straight jacket so beloved by the lazy and feckless, our power as citizens will continue to vanish and those who pull the strings will continue to gain wealth taken from us.

But we made 2010 just that little bit harder for the 650. We are watching them, watching us and now every move they make will be witnessed, measured, monitored and reported. And they HATE it.

Blogging will be much quieter in 2011. Probably. 4 years until off grid.....

To be governed is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so.

To be governed is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonoured.

That is government; that is it's justice; that is its morality.

Hear them howl, hear them scream...

The pavements won't get gritted, the rubbish might not get collected. The cuts mean YOUR addiction to the overpriced and inefficient state might not be served by the "dealer". SAVE OUR JOBS

Up yours. I can grit my own path, thanks. I can sort my own rubbish, thanks. I don't need 7 million public servants to hold me to ransom. I don't need to pay your wages, your pensions, your tax credits, your council tax or your child benefit to drive 3 miles to the dump.

The noise coming from those who rely on the state drug dealer is going to be deafening next year. Cold turkey is never pretty, but the alternative is far more horrible. Labour are now so desperate, they are selling wraps to schoolkids for 1p each

2011 is going to be the year of "cold turkey". Remove yourself from the drug dealing circle, clean up, focus on you and yours, instead of the "collective" and you will experience freedom. Ignore the screams of those who cannot afford a 42" plasma and will have to make do with a taxpayer funded 37" from the Tesco Basic range. Ignore the screams of those who demand "diversity coordinators" and focus on protecting your family and your property from those who believe that what you have, they should have. By default.

Resist. Refuse. You earned it, it is your property, it belongs to you. There are 7 million State addicts out there who are about to jemmy your windows, looking for the next fix of big government.

You can live without the State. The State cannot live without you. IT is the parasite, not you.

Parental Idiots

The Media are alight this morning as it is revealed that 15% of 11 year olds cannot read. Politicians are queueing up to give their opinion of Ofsted, teachers, the education system, all demanding MORE money, MORE resources, MORE interference, MORE measuring and monitoring by the State.

If your child cannot read at the age of 11, it is not the education system that has failed, it is YOU, the parent. YOU have the responsibility to read to your child from birth, not the State. YOU have the responsibility to listen to your child read to you, improve his vocabulary, correct his mistakes and spelling. Not some yoghurt knitting Fabian with 30 other children to indoctrinate.

Sod the Xbox, sod the BMX, sod the Wii. BUY YOUR CHILD A BOOK this Christmas and give the poor sod a future. If you want to be free from the State, do not expect the State to give you the keys to do it. There's a whole Internet of information out there, for free, on how to raise a child. The X factor is not the answer.

Light blogging

Apologies for the light blogging. I am not about to do an Iain Dale (the fat poof) and "retire", I'm just very busy making sure that everything is in place to get out of this ridiculous excuse of a country whilst I still can.

I have a plan and the last week in particular* has made me more determined than ever to find my own little haven away from every useless bastard that either wants a piece of me, my property, my family or my money, and it won't be this country.

Get Stuffed, Cameron

Had enough of being governed? Sick of Europe? Fed up with war? Exhausted by tax? Tired of endless rules and regulations? Bored of the endless intrusions into your life?

What they do to them...

the unaccountable protecting the indefensible

Again, the differences between Tories and Libertarians become clear. I supported the Students in their protest against being lied to by Politicians. I do not support free higher education. If the State is going to tax you on your skills, it can damn well pay for you to acquire those skills or (as I prefer) those who finance their own education simply pay basic rate income tax. Forever.

As we see the State (rightfully) reducing what it will supply to a benefit addicted society created by Fabians over the last 50 years, it is only fair that the bill the State presents (with menaces) to citizens should shrink. It won't. VAT is due to increase to cover the State handing over our money to Banks, income tax will not fall until the bills of 13 years of authoritarianism have been paid and general taxation is still set in another country by unelected European Marxists.

What was interesting yesterday was the ferocity of our servants, the Police, to protect those who SHOULD be our servants, Politicians. If Students need any more lessons in who protects who in this society,they are not fit to study.

Of course, when you withdraw heroin from the addict, the addict will react. To watch our police protecting the drug dealer however was poetic.

Today, Cameron calls for the "full force of the law" to be used against those who protested. Not those who stole all our money and handed it to corrupt bankers, not those who lobby for vested interests, not those who hand our hard earned money to Europe to spend as they wish, not those who lie, cheat and steal the wealth of our unborn children, not those who invade countries illegally, not those who spy on us, not those who manipulate our every waking moment, not those who will place us prison if we refuse to pay for their unsolicited services, not those who demand we comply, obey, shut up and pay, not those who rule us with vast fortunes taken from the people by force

But those who dared to complain. And remember, what they did to the Students yesterday, they will do to us when we dare to suggest that enough is enough.

Tories, enjoy your righteous indignation that Students "made a mess", "disrespected Churchill" or "vandalised a royal Rolls Royce" if it pleases you. Just remember that when you have had enough, when you decide that you have not been heard, listened to or lied to and dare to complain, your servants will turn on you in the same brutal manner.

Expect much much more of this.

to the Bone

an MP discovers real cuts in public spending, yesterday

I won't involve myself in the arguments over Top Shop, Vodaphone, BHS, Cadbury et al either planning or already avoiding unnecessary UK taxes, others are already doing that via the #ukuncut twitter hashtag

I would however like to suggest that our current level of State cuts is pitiful, pathetic and a fraud.

Yesterday, government employees closed Spanish airspace. The employees of the Spanish State decided that their own vested interests trumped those of the entire population, the basic right of freedom of movement and crippled international flights in European airspace. You and I had no say in the matter. We were grounded.

Firstly, what the hell are government employees doing controlling airspace anyway? Oh, yes, the State decides that it owns everything and then employs citizens to operate everything in return for most of their money. Of course, private companies could run the airspace, produce wealth, pay their staff enough so they wouldn't go bust or strike and everybody would be happy. But no, the State must control all the levers even if it quite plainly can't control all the levers.

I see the Irish government owning Claridges Hotel in London and wonder just what is the point? Why does the State own so much on our behalf? It is the most inefficient employer or operator, utterly useless at providing anything other pensions and wages built on Ponzi schemes that will enslave out grandchildren in false debt caused by handing borrowed money to failing banks so that the State can own them as well.

State ownership is the dream of the Fabian, where the collective is more important than the person, the ownership more important than the purpose.

Slash it and burn it. Reduce state ownership of everything to an army, a judiciary, a border force and a police force. Everything else can be done by us as free people, not by us as bonded slaves to the State. Slash State ownership and watch the tax bills plummet. You want a £37 million pound theatre in Barry, Wales? You pay for it, you run it, you make it pay, you negotiate with the employees, you deliver the content, you pay the pensions and running costs by producing what free people will pay hard earned money to see, not by demanding by force that a fork lift truck driver on night shift in Newcastle "supports" your "desire" to bring "arts" to the "unemployed" of rural Wales.

Just this morning I heard a "group" that looks after the homeless simply refusing to leave homeless people alone. They refered to them "clients" and no matter how many times they were told to bugger off by their "clients", it was their "duty" to save these people from themselves (and in the process, protect their own jobs, pensions and control of their clients) and protect and save them they will, come hell or high water. You WILL attend our carefully designed and publicly funded "program" because we know best and you don't. No shut up and cooperate.

Reduce state ownership, ground Co operatives, form business alliances, work for yourself, slash taxes and simply consume less and you will have freedom. Yes, including the freedom to do fuck all and starve.

Cut everything. Cut to the bone and let the market pick up what people really want, are happy to pay for and get your thieving hands out of our pockets. If I want it, I will happily pay for it. you will know when you have cut enough when the queues of Kurds, Afghanis, Romanians and Africans at Sangatte no longer exists.

There is no such thing as free milk and honey. Ask a bear.

Commons Criminals

“In respect of mortgage interest payments, there has been an unforgivable error in my accounting procedures for which I apologise unreservedly,”

He stole taxpayers money. Then he decided he was above the law and used taxpayers money to try and avoid prosecution in court for the theft of taxpayers money by claiming "Parliamentary Privilege"

.....and now he pleads guilty to stealing taxpayers money.
Book, meet David Cheater, David Cheater meet book. Labour filth.

the Abuse of Children

Fifty years of Fabian experimentation has produced a nation unable to raise children. Simply stunning. No longer can the natural system of the last 2 million years of our evolution, namely the family, be trusted to produce happy, productive, responsible individuals, so the state is now to teach us, who it treats like children, to raise our children.

Are you proud? Do our masters actually realise the damage they have wrought in half a century of meddling, control, laws, surveillance, regulation, taxation, handouts, support?

We are unable to raise children anymore. The State simply assumed the role of parent and grandparent and gave us bread and circuses to keep us amused whilst it got on with the serious grown up business of spending our money for their own aggrandisement.

Their answer to the problem? Not to encourage stable families. Not to leave people alone to live their lives and take responsibility. No, the answer to the problem is more of the same

It is not working, therefore we must do more of it, for it to work
So the state will now measure and regulate our children for "life chance indicators". Parents, once abandoned by the State must now become child monitors for the State. I give you

  • parenting classes throughout school life, arguing that Britain believes parenting is learnt through osmosis;
  • a new index of life chances that can be monitored annually;
  • a focus on foundation years equal to primary and secondary schools;
  • a rationalisation of children's services, including post-natal work, from the womb to going to school;
  • a working-class version of Mumsnet, the online forum for parents;
  • kite marking children's tv programmes to help speech development.
If I was a new parent, I would baracade the door and dedicate my life to protecting my child FROM the State. Hitler could only dream of the power a mere 650 individuals now possess over human evolution itself. Truly EVIL.

My dream of getting off grid grows stronger every day, whilst the Fabians continue to blend Brave New World, Animal Farm and 1984 into their new Koran, to be administered with all the rabid ferver of Sharia Law. God help the faithful and the unbelievers alike.

Who will rid us of these troublesome Politicians?

Just leave us alone....

Further to my last post, the desperation of inefficient, useless, pen pushing councils to justify their existences knows no bounds.

Remember, in a State monopoly, the "client" cannot be left alone to do as he pleases or choose the services he requires. You must have it all and you must pay for it all.

I want the State to take me clubbing

Our good friends at Lambeth Council have decided to rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic as they are faced with "revenue shortfalls"

Rather than simply cutting non essential services and saving money, they intend to hand their budget over to their "clients" to spend how they wish. You read that correctly. Rather than stop spending they have decided that their "clients" know how best to spend the millions that pour through the council.

So a "client" can now demand what he wants as long as it is within his "budget" It is called "Survive and Thrive" and will keep the army of Marxist pen pushing busybodies employed and their pensions topped up.

An example

Billy has learning difficulties and needs help from the State. He has a personal assistant for 21 hours a week. But now, he can tell the personal assistant what to do. So we have the tail wagging the dog.

This is what Billy demands from the State

  • Your job is to help me live the life I want and help me to learn new things. You must respect my choices, help me to make my own decisions and stay in control of my life.
  • Support me to go out and make new friends
  • Come clubbing with me until 3am (one Saturday a month)
  • Help me improve my computer skills to use Facebook and do shopping online
  • Support me to walk my dog, make sure he gets enough exercise and keeps healthy
  • Any other things I may need
Source Page 72

So now the State will take Billy clubbing, walk his dog and help him on Ebay and Facebook. And send the bill to you and I. It is a Fabians wet dream. Total financial and physical control of "citizens".

All Going Pete Tong For EUSSR

What a tragedy! The EUSSR is in mortal danger of collapsing in recriminations as the peasants refuse to obey orders in Ireland.

The markets are already circling the walking corpse that is Portugal's economy, and have ear-marked Belgium as next in line....

How long will the Germans put up with handing their hard earned "real" Euros over to the feckless to piss away?

It will only take one country to say "Fuck this for a game - I'll have my sovereignity back, and you and your overpaid tossers and troughers can fuck the fuck off!" and the whole house of cards will fall down.

Best of all, those cunts on the EUSSR gravy train will have to try and find proper jobs and can say goodbye to their gold-plated pensions,

Sooner the better!!

A valuable lesson

As teenagers and students protested today, I was interested to see the vested little interests of those who either attended or supported their actions.

My vested interest in supporting their actions is that they will have learned a valuable lesson. The State is not your friend. It will lie to you, cheat , steal your money and then shit in your face (or kettle your children) if you give it the chance.

I don't agree that higher education should be free, I don't agree that those who work on minimum wage should be forced to fund the Aromatherapy degrees of future merchant bankers. Most of the students today have parents who spend more on golf club/gym membership per year than it would cost to put their children through that ultimate priviledge, university.

But I very much do support them in their anger at lying Politicians. They were sold a pup. We always are and better to learn that lesson in the freezing cold and hungry, trapped in a crowd by menacing agents of the State than happily and blindly voting for more of the same every five years.

They will have seen the power of the State when you simply hold it to account and it "disagrees".

Wait until they get a job and see how the Government treats them. The Irish are just about to find out just how brutal a hungry State can be

Bonded Labour

As we all now, slavery is abolished in the West and only continues within Africa and the Arab world. Bonded Labour however is more common than you think.

What is Bonded Labour?

Bonded labour - or debt bondage - is probably the least known form of slavery today, and yet it is the most widely used method of enslaving people. A person becomes a bonded labourer when their labour is demanded as a means of repayment for a loan. The person is then tricked or trapped into working for very little or no pay, often for seven days a week. The value of their work is invariably greater than the original sum of money borrowed.

Who are the bonded labourers?

Entire families treated like cattle on farms in India, Pakistan and Nepal and the 7.15 to Waterloo; migrant agricultural workers forced to remain on ranches in Brazil; and the organised export of women into domestic and sexual slavery in Europe. Huge promises made by Politicians ensure that most of the labour of the worker goes straight to the Government and the remainder must be used by the worker for housing and food.Bonds (future tax revenues of the workers) are sold by governments to each other, enslaving even the unborn into the system. The average child in Briatin is now born "owing" £90,000 to the plantation owner.

Bonded labour is expanding due to poverty and the global demand for sources of cheap, expendable labour and credit and the greed of the State to own all money.

UK Bonded labourers are not allowed to smoke, drink, or eat anything that may affect their productivity. they are also now forced to work well into old age to show a good return on "investment" for their masters.

Just this morning, the UK plantation owner added another £300 each to the debt of UK labourers to help out a neighbouring plantation owner who has not been working his labourers hard enough

Is bonded labour new?

No, it has existed for thousands of years. In South Asia it is rooted in the caste system (class system in the UK) and flourishes in agriculture, in cottage industries, the banking sector and in factories and in the West the future labour of your children is traded in "Government Bonds".

Debt bondage was also used as a means of trapping indentured labourers into working on plantations in Africa, the Caribbean and South-East London, following the abolition of the slave trade.

Bonded labourers are forced to work to repay debts their employer or Government says they owe, and they are not allowed to work for anyone else or simply do nothing. Various forms of force are used to make sure they stay. In many cases they are kept under surveillance, sometimes under lock and key. In Britain, if you refuse to hand over your earned money to the Government, you will be placed in jail.

There are extreme examples of chained labourers kept under armed guard in Pakistan. Poverty and threats of violence force many bonded labourers to stay with their masters, since they would not otherwise be able to eat or have a place to sleep, although in Britain, bonded labourers are forced to provide their own housing and food.

Poverty, and Politicians prepared to exploit the desperation of others lie at the heart of bonded labour. Often without land or education, the need for cash just for daily survival forces people to sell their labour in exchange for a lump sum of money, salary or a loan.

Despite the fact that bonded labour is illegal in most countries where it is found, governments are rarely willing to enforce the law, or to ensure that those who profit from it are punished. It is what allows them to thrive and control vast populations. Leaders of the Governments are all multi millionaires.

Well, that didn't take long did it? Ireland is now owned by the European Central Bank and the IMF because it's politicians would prefer to continue promising the Earth in return for power than acknowledge that the State is unaffordable.

Rather go cap in hand to the Slavemaster for more potatoes for the promised banquet than throw off the shackles and grow their own potatoes, for themselves. You could have simply decided to live within your means and tell your Politicians that your children will not pay the debts of bankers, drunk on power. But no, rather than leave the Plantation, you have decided to pay for the new fence the new owners will require to keep their "investment" safe.

If the English Landowners were bastards, just wait till you see what hell you have bequethed your children.

Your day has come, you've got a new Bloody Sunday. I await another generation of Martyrs.

a Nation of Victims

Slicing up the "benefits", ready for "distribution" to the "vulnerable"

I don't watch much TV but I gather "Children in Need", the annual begfest by millionaire BBC TV presenters and a chance to wheel out Lenny Henry happened again last night. Apparently, it has raised £18 million to help the most deprived children in this land of ours.

A noble cause, you may think, until a little research shows exactly what "deprived" consists of in these days of "everyone is a victim, everyone needs help".

Firstly, I noticed that the Welsh are celebrating that they managed to dig deep into their pockets and raised the amazing sum of £1M. It took Tom Jones and the Millennium stadium, some pop bands and the like to manage it, but never the less, £1M was raised. For good causes. Then I wondered how much of the £18M will be sent to Wales in the form of grants etc.

£6,206,540. One third of what was raised yesterday by the nation will be handed to the Welshers. source

Are the Welsh really so deprived? Well, £85K was desperately needed in Cardiff by SEF Cymru

This project will increase learning within Somali youth through acombination of curriculum based and culturally specific educational activities in an out of school environment, to promote integration and tackle disaffection.
Do the young boys of Barry really need weekly dance lessons at a cost of £45K? (Cue: Ron Broxted in the comments) I don't know. What I do know is that society is addicted to handouts. Everyone in modern society is a "victim". Everyone needs "support" with other peoples money and grubbing vested interests stretch out their wirey grasping fingers for public cash wherever they can find it.

We have bred a society of dependents. Our Politicians have feasted on this mentality. It is their raison d'etre. The more they promise, the more votes, the more dependence, the more money, the more victims

If you want to be free of Government, you will have to learn to stop gorging the crack cocaine it offers anyone who asks. I suspect Wales, the North East and Scotland are simply too far gone and too comfortable in their self inflicted malaise to bother even turning up for addiction therapy, but until the beast that is Government is starved and we learn to live without its stolen handouts of our fellow citizens money, we are nothing more than slaves to it. We need rehab from the State or it will enslave us all.

BBC Children in Need receives not one penny from the Old Holborn household. Instead, I gave £5 to two youngsters who offered to wash my car this morning instead

Starve the Bankers on December 7th

Fed up with our masters simply handing over our (and that of our childrens) money over to banks? The French certainly are.

So on December 7th, you can take part in a bloodless, non violent piece of lawful rebellion just by walking up to the cashpoint and withdrawing as much money as you can.

A simple, peaceful act of defiance aimed to remind those who control our every waking moments that the entire system is based on our labour and our money and ultimately, it belongs to us, not them.

Perfect. Rather bizarely, here is Eric Cantona to explain.

    Dealing with the Police. Part 2

    You're in the wrong place at the wrong time and despite my wise words to remain peaceful when in the presence of those we pay to keep the peace, you are suddenly in the back of a Police Van.

    Now it's going to get interesting. Many avenues are open to you. Consider them wisely as you are driven to the Police station.

    Firstly, golden number one rule. Remain peaceful. The people who now hold you are bigger than you and there is more of them than you. No one ever escapes from a custody suite by violence or shouting. Plenty escape by simply knowing their rights. Do not resist. Do not struggle. You are going to use your brain, not your brawn.

    Contrary to what your surroundings may tell you, you are very much in control. Be confident.

    Firstly, the custody officer will want to see you. His job is to protect you, so make sure he is qualified. Politely ask to see his warrant card. You have now established in one question that you are not an ordinary customer. You have made it clear to him that you know the system and your rights. His attitude towards you will change immediately. You are going to be challenge to him.

    Now shut up. Simply do not say another word. There is a process to be played out and you being a wise guy is not going to change that. You will be searched. I never carry ID, credit cards, driving licence, nothing. I rarely carry a mobile phone and keep a special blank pay as you go sim for when I am out and about as Old Holborn.

    You may have me in custody, but you have no idea who you have and I'm not going to tell you. Assuming you were not arrested for stabbing the Queen, all you have to worry about is time.

    You may now begin your demands. Tea please. Lots of it. Every ten minutes. A drink of water. Some food. Some paper and a pen. You are cold. You are hot. I'd like to see the duty doctor. I have a headache. All done with the utmost politeness.

    Expect hours and hours to pass. You are sitting in a cell because you will not cooperate with them. You will not answer their questions. You have done nothing. Demand to see a solicitor. Immediately. Do not be aggressive. Remember, you are in control.

    They will take your photo and your fingerprints plus a sample of your dna via a cheek swab. Again, they no idea who it belongs to. You on the other hand want the name and number of every officer anywhere near you. And more tea.

    Now they will ask you more questions and tell you what offences you have committed. Shut up. Being open and honest and hoping to talk your way out is not going to work. It never does. It just makes it easier for them to process you, tick some boxes and file some reports, hit some targets and go back to reading the paper. More tea please. And the doctor again, I feel unwell. Remember, the Police are not the slightest bit interested whether you are innocent or guilty, they are just looking to charge you with a crime. Any crime It is their JOB.

    Remember, the Police are allowed to lie to you. They will tell you awful things will happen to you. They will tell you about how they deal with "awkward customers " like you. Simply smile. And demand more tea. The police have HUGE discretion over who actually is charged and who is quietly released with no further questions.

    If they really have evidence, they will use it. If they don't, just opening your mouth may well provide them with all they need. So don't.

    The above scenario will see you in custody for anything up to 24 hours until, quite literally, they are bored with you. So what, you have all the time in the world. You have no charge, no record and no bruises. Remember, your name and address are useful to them. So don't give them.

    If of course, you HAVE commited a crime and they have the proof, you'll need Part 3, coming soon

    Old Holborn and Censorship

    I've been asked to answer a few questions pertaining to censorship and blogging, so I thought I'd answer them here

    1. How would you be affected if all blogs were censored by the state?
    Nothing revolts a Libertarian more than an interfering state. I do not need the permission of the State to think, therefore it is inconceivable that state censorship in any form would stop me from speaking. I would simply move my blog to a location unaffected by the State. Iceland for example.

    2. How bad would it have to get before you stopped or gave up trying to share information and opinions?

    The blog is merely the modern extension of writing on a wall, or a printing a leaflet. I wouldn't stop until I was physically stopped and then I would fight. The Internet is open, it cannot be closed. They would, quite literally, have to pull my keyboard out of my cold dead fingers. This is not hyperbole. To censor my blog would equate to the State stuffing a rag in my mouth, something that would not be tolerated.

    3. We live in a country which seems to have relative freedom of speech and a right to remain anonymous. What is your opinion of bloggers such as those in China where some “cyber dissenters” are serving sentences of over ten years? Could you be one of those people?

    Most certainly. You stand for something or you fall for everything. The State will tell you that you do not have the "right" to remain anonymous any more than you have a "right" to free speech. It is an offence not to name your child or register their birth with the State. It is an offence not to identify yourself upon arrest by the Police. It is an offence to joke that you may blow up an airport or refuse to show your passport at immigration. It is an offence to suggest that Yasmin Alibi Brown needs to be stoned to death. The myth of free speech is just that. a myth. If I recite out loud a list of the war dead in Afghanistan in public on Parliament Green, I WILL be arrested with force by the State.

    I would courteously remind the State that rights are what you are born with, not what you are given. The anonymous voice is the most powerful voice there is because it is not open to personal attack. It is also feared the most by those in power. One of the reasons that all dissidents must be named and shamed by the State. Alas, as the East Germans found out, the anonymous voice can achieve anything.

    4. People who blog about the things you do don’t tend to go down without a fight. What would your reaction be if censorship was mandated in the U.K.?
    Up and off. The white wall that is the internet belongs to no one and can be read by anyone. Existing legislation (D notices, super injunctions etc) already exist to censor, but the law cannot silence an anonymous man in a mask. I am Spartacus, not a journalist. As are my readers.

    5. Individuals, companies, the police and even the government have tried to silence U.K. bloggers on certain issues in the past. Have you ever been affected by censorship, or has anyone ever attempted to censor or silence your blog posts? If so, in which ways?

    There is no censorship or moderation on the Old Holborn site for a specific reason. No one can persecute me for owning a white wall. I am not responsible for what is written upon it any more than London Transport are responsible for what is written on the back seats of their buses or BT in their phone boxes. I don't carry adverts, so no one can sue my advertisers and I steal all the photos I use as I make no profit from them (a legal point). I do not, nor ever intend to make a single penny out of blogging. It is simply my voice, and those of my commentators, my other contributors (who I have no idea who they really are) and my readership.

    I have taken plenty of vitriol, spite, jealousy, venom, abuse and insults from my detractors and commentators. I know I will always be held to account. But then again, how can an anonymous man in a mask who could be any of us take any of it personally?

    Oh, and have no fear. None. It is a waste of time and emotion. One life, live it.

    Bringing Teaching Into Disrepute?

    I seem to recall (with anger and distaste) that the teaching profession forced out "Miss Snuffy" for bringing teaching into disrepute following her daring to take to the stage at the Tory Party conference and tell the shocking truth about just what appalingly low standards applied in state schools.

    Surely those academics who have tried to justify destruction and violence in yesterday's student protest are genuinely guilty of bringing teaching into disrepute and should be sacked?

    David Graeber, an anthropology lecturer at Goldsmiths who was among the protestors, said he was “very proud” of the students, adding: “They are going to represent us as thugs but really they are the thugs and we are representing civilisation.”

    John Wadsworth, the president of Goldsmiths lecturers’ union, and its secretary Des Freedman, a lecturer in communications and cultural studies justified the violence by saying it had brought the tuition fees row “media attention across the world”.

    Getting rid of these pillocks would make more money available for more worthwhile stuff, like books, or teaching studenst how to spell "future" properly.

    The Penguin

    The Right to sell your Labour and the "right to work"

    With over 7 million currently forced to sit on the sofa and watch Jeremy Kyle all day or shortly to be asked to clean up litter in return for us paying their rent, energy, council tax, food, beer and fags bills, one has to wonder what good the minimum wage has done.

    It currently stands at £5.93 an hour or roughly £237 a week for 40 hours. Not a fortune but no one will starve. Sitting on benefits of course will bring you much, much more dependent on your exact circumstances, hence those who have the most to gain from the Welfare state and the generosity of Socialists to hand out other peoples money are currently stuffing Asda doughnuts down their fat necks whilst you and I work to fund it all.

    What if your labour was worth £5.92 and you lived in a small flat as a single person? You could earn £236.80 a week, learn some skills, pay your own rent and look forward to a future, instead of a mere £65 a week in dole and 10 hours of TV or sitting in the park every day.

    Alas, you would be breaking the law and your employer, happy to pay you would be fined.

    The minimum wage is the chain to make you vote for the party that hands you the most benefits. If I offer you the opportunity to chop up some logs for me for £20 and it takes you four hours, you and I have broken the law. If it takes you three hours, you are £20 richer and I have winter fuel. Alas, the State will not allow you to take four hours. It would rather you sat on the sofa.

    7 million people should at least have the chance to offer their labour, the one thing they own for whatever price pleases them. It is no business of the State to condemn them to idleness against their will. Removing the minimum wage would see millions of jobs created, millions of welfare slaves free to set their own price for their own labour and millions of lives changed for the better.

    No wonder politicians will do nothing. Whilst they spout about the "right to work" they forget that they are the ones denying work and prosperity to millions. Utterly shameful.

    Market Day in London - One man and his dogs

    Today will see over 30,000 higher education students arrive in London to protest against higher fees for their degrees from State universities.

    Naturally, the hard left and the Unions will be there to hijack the event and turn it into a "no cuts" demo, Socialist Worker will be there droning on about asylum seekers and the need for the collective and Labour will be there to denounce the Libdems etc etc etc

    My standpoint on this is very simple. If the State is going to demand 40% of your income, the State can damn well pay for you to acquire the skills. If the State is not going to pay for your education, then the State has no right to the fruits of that education and you should be exempt from income tax.

    So create merry hell today kids. Show the State that you are not sheep being forced to pay for your own abattoir whilst the farmer works out how he can charge you for fattening you up for slaughter. Show him that if you pay, the rules will have to change. You will not leave Uni with massive debts only to have him thrust his hand into your empty pockets to "harvest" the fruits of YOUR labour.

    Show the State you are not the property of the State. Remind it that your life belongs to you and if it wants you to work in the cotton fields, it can damn well pay for the training.

    Fabian Towers Autumn Term

    When I was educated, I sat in a class of 30 and had one teacher, not an army of teaching assistants. I shut up or I was shut up, not indulged or advised on how to txt in Urdu. I was expected to achieve results or I was out.

    No surprises that one, just one teacher has been sacked in our education system. In classic Fabian style, for one teacher to fail is for all teachers to fail, so none will. Beautifully replicated in the educations system where all must have prizes and none must rise so far above the other as to cause a shadow.

    Our good friends the Socialists are showing that the mentality continues as the rowdy pupils argue with the headmistress and demand that little Phil "weren't me" Woolas, caught writing racist abuse on the town hall walls and lying to some grown ups should not be expelled from Fabian Towers but promoted to Head Boy with extra tuck. Head Boy Tom Harris MP is disgusted that a pupil of the school could be so badly treated by the teachers when up until now, all he had done (including stamping on the louts from Gurkha High for Boys) had earned him gold stars.

    No matter that the Ofsted rating put Fabian Towers lower than a snakes belly, no matter that a new Headmaster has just started or that the school football team faces relegation from the Saturday morning league. No matter that pupils are unemployable once they leave school or that so many of the pupils are currently suspended for bad behaviour and theft from the tuck shop or had to hand back stolen property when the schools inspector raided their lockers last year.

    No, no. The pupils at Fabian Towers have always been in control of the school. No pesky teacher is going to tell them anything. I can hear their chants from the assembly hall now

    "for one to fail, all must fail, for one to fail, all must fail"
    Clutch those worthless certificates, boys and girls, and get ready to face the real world.
