Lest we forget

Another year has passed and I shall go down to the war memorial in the Prince’s Gardens on my own for the seventh year to stand with what seems to be a dwindling number of old and young folk to remember the millions lost to war. 

And as I stand there shivering in the cold wind I will remember those who were killed in the Great War and the two Uncles I never met or knew who were killed in the second “world” war, I will remember my old dad who came back from the ‘conflict’ with malaria and a piece of his soul missing, and the many young men and women who are still returning from foreign fields with parts of their bodies blown off or unable to cope with life because of what they have seen or done.


I will remember those in charge back in 1914 that sent wave after wave of frightened young men over the top to die in droves just to gain a yard of ground, and the lying politicians who started conflicts on the basis of non existing “intelligence” so that they can gain access to oil.

And I will remember all those who profited from the death and disfigurement of those that have given their all to protect their countries and continue to do so.


I will remember them all.

The news is the usual today-people killing each other in the Middle-East-here

People killing each other in Sri Lanka-here

The Tories not even making promises they can keep anymore-here

Gordon Brown-trousers telling us that the shit HE got us into is a “test of character”-here

And the usual bollocks from the “UK government's newly formed Food Council.”-here

The “Christmas spirit” hasn’t lasted very long this year has it?

The world keeps turning and the Tossers don’t even want to change, they don’t want peace, they don’t want to step back and think what they are doing to other countries and themselves, the populace is expendable, cannon-fodder for the politicians.

I know the situation in Israel and Palestine is complicated and long fought, I know there is a fundamental difference in “outlook”, but for God’s sake, what the Firk is the matter with these people?

Do they want war? Do they want to keep killing women, the old, children and young men?

I don’t have a solution, there is no military solution, the “religions” of the region have no solution, the only way to solve this unsustainable hatred, is to talk, but it seems they don’t even want to do that.

Each side is as bad as the other: it has got to the point where there is no fundamental difference between the two sides

As I said in my last blog “I don’t do religion” but this is a time to comment.

It really is time that the “middle east” grows up and accepts the fact that people ARE DIFFERENT. Religions are different, but no religion is better then the other, because religion is a matter of personal faith, not a weapon for Governments and individuals to destroy the other.
