Lexit the Movie

This is an excellent documentary given that it was thrown together in just two weeks.

It looks at brexit from a left of centre point of view and is very reassuring when compared to the stream of right wing nut jobs supporting brexit in "brexit the movie".

That said, being in Scotland I will vote the opposite of what England will vote as I want another independence referendum.

I wouldn't be averse to Scotland holding a "screxit" referendum after we are independent.

The EU was no friend to Scotland in our independence referendum, so they can get fucked so far as I'm concerned.

Patronising drivel. Most people can see right through a campaign led by two Murdoch stooges and the perennial useful idiots IDS and Farage.

The image is complete rubbish.

56% of Swedes voted against the euro. Consequently the Swedes still use krona to this day.

They were not voting on EU membership as the first part of the message suggests.

The coincidence of a politician being killed a few days before a referendum in both cases is enough without bringing lies into it.

This story could be the smoking gun for false-flag operations

Part 1.

Neoliberalism is like a cancer, it corrupts people in high places and then spreads itself everywhere. I once described as like being in the film, The Invasion of the Body Snatchers, where it seems that almost everyone becomes one of the aliens with their minds taken over. And neoliberalism uses the propaganda of the 'meritocracy' to hoodwink ordinary people.

When I first started work many years ago loads of people were on the moderate left or in the centre. So when it came to high rates of tax on the very rich most people just said, ' well, you have got to earn it to pay it', in order words, if they're earning seriously good money, then what have they got to grumble about? This was a common sentiment.

But when Margret Thatcher got elected out of the woodwork came the working class neo-fascists, the authoritarians, who supported tough management and the 'vulgar' Conservative Party. And in those depressing times I would sometimes go to parties and there would be some right-wing nut there winding everyone up by saying things like, why should they pay for other people's kids to go to school, or that, everyone should pay for the roads when they use them, it shouldn't come out of their tax. But these people were often completely unchallenged because the Right were in their hey day, with the One Percent, the aristocracy, pumping £millions into right-wing think thanks to spread their BS propaganda.

I once went on holiday and my friend brought his mate along who was a raging neoliberal, full of right wing propaganda. And he would go on and on about Elton John saying that because he was so rich he could afford to spend £290,000 on flowers on his wedding day, which helped all the little florists shops in his area. Well, he probably read this neoliberal BS in the Daily Mail that he used to read. And then he told me how Elton had to hire a lorry to take him to his wedding because his wedding dress was so huge, and how this too had been good business for the tailors who had made the dress. But florist workers are on usually very low wages and so how does the £290,000 spent on flowers on one day make up for the loss of spending power for millions of ordinary people on all the other days of the year? How many little shops in Elton John's area were struggling to make a living because most people were on very low wages which was impoverishing the community?

Part 2.

So the neoliberal revolution came upon us until the bottom fell out of it in 2008, but its corpse carries on just like in The Invasion of the Body Snatchers. And like the young prince's whipping boy who had to take all the punishment when the boy prince was naughty, so ordinary people had to pay up when the One Percent gambled, looted, and busted the financial system. And just like the whipping boy they passively and gratefully accepted their punishment while the One Percent became richer than ever.

Neoliberalism is not really a 'meritocracy' at all, but a system for self perpetuating rich to stay on top forever, the people who get rich while they sleep. It's like in a game of monopoly where the more rich you become the easier it is to grab everything for yourself until only one person gets to own everything and everyone else gets busted.

So the One Percent own the banks, the government, the old socialist parties of Europe, the judiciary, the media, the Democrats, the Western propaganda machine, and the police, and so they are able to fix elections to make sure that their politicians always get voted back in again. They have so much money they can easily buy anything, or virtually anyone. So this cancer spreads throughout society and the World with democracy being destroyed being replaced by serfdom, which Paul Craig Roberts calls, The Matrix.

And people get hoodwinked and don't even know they are being cheated, or that their children are being robbed, or will get robbed. They believe that their huge mortgages and their slavery to their jobs is just a natural occurrence. And when someone tells them how much their house is worth they go all weak at the knees thinking that they are part of the mega rich too, but their children can't afford to buy a home and will have to become slaves to their jobs as well. And unless people sell their houses and go to live where no one else wants to live, it is only paper money they have which can never be realised, so they have been hoodwinked by neoliberal greed. Everyone is up for the joy ride! Which isn't fun at all, just work, work, work.

And when they get older they may need to sell their houses to pay for their old age care, so the One Percent screw them throughout life and then get to screw them all over again at the end by taking everything back off them. So these people just thought they were wealthy when in fact they were really serfs, caught in the system like hamsters running in a wheel going nowhere because they are trapped in The Matrix.

Now some people will sell their houses to buy a flat, or an apartment, so they can give their children enough for a deposit on a house, to give them a chance. And so they will often move to an area where property is much cheaper because there are no jobs there, so the roots they had laid down all their lives, and all the friends they had ever made, usually become just distant memories. And they probably live many miles from their children too because they will need live near their jobs. And in this way close knit communities and friendships get broken up and may never be the same again, but neoliberalism has no other values as all life is just a commodity. The market is God, and people have no choice but to worship it because everyday they are told this is TINA - that There Is No Alternative - and the highly paid gurus of the ‘free market’ say this is just like the laws of physics and so can never be changed. But it's all hot air, smoke and mirrors, we’re in The Matrix. Take the blue pill, or the red pill, it makes no difference. The aristocracy know how to make serious money because they own the banks and the financial system and can get everyone in debt right up to their eyeballs, then people will then have to work their arses off forever for aristocracy. A nice little earner.

The people vs the voting machine programmers & the vote count riggers

Nigel Farage speaks as if he is tossing in the towel after Jo Cox's murder, 'Brexit losing momentum' says Nigel

But City of London club boy Nigel, has at times seemed a bit of a Trojan Horse sabotaging some things he claims to support

More sensible warnings against Brexit today.

George Osborne:

"Let us remember that Piers Morgan is not some legend or myth. He is very real. This is not some sort of game; outside the EU, these are actual threats we would face."

Eamonn Holmes, Adam Boulton and David Dimbleby:

"Britain has NO plan for managing the smugness of tv news presenters in the event of Brexit."

The Queen:

"A vote for Brexit would spit on my husband, crush our Kate, and shake Charles very violently. Moreover, it would break one's heart, kick one in the teeth, and - yes - slap one in the face. That being said, one has no opinion."

The Pope:

"Voting for Brexit would invoke the Anti-Christ and the End Times. This could entail a thousand years of Simon Cowell, followed by a thousand years of Bob Geldof. IN YOUR HOUSE."

Taylor Swift:

"I plea with you Brits to stay in! I love your friendly badgers! I would hate for that to change. I couldn't see myself continuing with my artistry in that kind of event."

I've rewritten the end now,so here it is. Part 3:

The aristocracy know how to make serious money because they own all the banks and so they can get everyone in debt right up to their eyeballs. Then people are forced to work their arses off becoming virtually slaves.

Everyone needs somewhere to live, a sanctuary, and in Gadhafi’s Libya everyone got a house from the government because it was considered a basic human right, which it is. But that didn’t suite the One Percent so they got rid of him. So if the free market can’t supply us with good homes inexpensively then the government should be able to step in and supply them instead. But we can’t vote in such a government because the neoliberals own all the different political parties and so we don’t get any real choice at election time.

There is only a finite supply of houses but the banks can create an unlimited amount of money - out of thin air, with no investors required. So people are forced to compete with each other for property until they are maxed out because the banks will always be able to supply the money. This private money supply creation is a force outside of market forces which distorts the market and house prices just keep on rising at alarming rates. People will just keep bidding up the price of houses until they get one because they have no other choice. They will then be forced to do lots of overtime, or to do two or three different jobs, often doing 60 to 70 hours a week at work, or more, just to be able to afford to buy, or rent, somewhere to live.

Everyone is getting maxed out including those that rent, and with their taxes, council rates, energy bills, water bills, etc., they end up with very little money left over to spend in the real economy, and so there’s always be a recession going on of some sort. This means that capitalism isn’t working, or isn’t working for millions of people, and it isn’t working for billions of people around the world either, and it never has. It’s time for a change.

The UK does not use voting machines.

I'll be voting to leave the undemocratic anti-worker EU (Lexit). I couldn't give a toss what Farage thinks.
