Good Grief! I’m Being Forced To Support The Tories!

You all know my views on people who voted for Brexit. Think what you did when you buy your fuel this week.

However, now the vote has been made a government I dislike is having to negotiate the terms. Whether I dislike the government is immaterial. Even I can see that they cannot discuss negotiation techniques and parameters publicly. It would be insane to give away your negotiation tactics.

So what does Corbyn do – wants public debates in parliament on how our government is going to negotiate? Words fail me as to what sort of blithering idiot this man is. Sorry, but whatever we think of them, we have to trust the government to negotiate in private. Anything else would be as stupid as voting to leave the EU!

Remain or Leave? Things To Consider …

Euro MapI’ve kept out of this argument until now, but I thought I’d better speak out as it looks as if it is possible the Leave supporters might actually win. If you are a Leave supporter, please don’t allow that to stop you reading. Don’t you want an opinion from an pensioner who has worked in various industries, run businesses both successfully and with failures, and now relies on a pension? I hope I’m going to give you a different perspective, why not, at least, give me a hearing.

Firstly I think we all ought to consider what we are about to throw away. The European Union, or whatever you want to call it, is an experiment to try to ensure a good trading environment and the ability for people to move freely through a large area of the world.

The All-Forgiving Afterlife! The Cause Of So Many Ills.

Whenever I bring up religious belief as a cause of trouble in the world I find believers slap me down with statements that religious communities and congregations do wonderful things. What they say is correct, but atheists also do wonderful things so the point is irrelevant.

I have to ask this question – where was God on the 22nd March? God is supposed to hear everyone’s prayers and take a personal interest in all of us, yet, for some inexplicable reason, he ignored all of the prayers to stop this bloodshed and did not step in with a miracle to prevent the explosions. Let’s face it – stopping a bomb exploding is a pretty simple matter for an all-powerful, all-seeing being capable of creating galaxies and, indeed, the universe. The Islamic terrorists worship the same God, of course. They would say it is a more pure worship. There is no complication of Christ or the Holy Spirit. They believe in the one all-seeing, oft-merciful Allah who is indistinguishable from the God of the Bible. How much does God love his peoplesWas God not looking when they were making the bombs, discussing their strategies and planning their mayhem? How could that be? God sees all. In that case his decision to do nothing must be by choice. What a hateful creature this God must be to cause so much pain, suffering and distress to people he is supposed to love?

Evidence tells anyone with the ability to think logically, that any God which might have created the universe, could not possibly care about us as individuals. The irrational belief that he can be interested in us is born out of our own insecurity and fear of mortality.
