closing schools?

Why close schools wand blame educational processes for Covid-19? Doesn’t that just show somebody who wants to stop youth from mixing in educational establishments?

A lot of our young people’s learning and personal development is aimed at taking place in the school environment.

Whilst Greenwich follows the Major’s advice and closes all schools tonight, Hackney follows government advice and allows Covid-19 testing for all pupils and families if wished. That also fits in with the request of the Oxford Covid-19 vaccine developers to obtain more test results from carriers who may not have symptoms to enable a more effective development of the vaccine, they are working on.

Our whole family development is more around getting children away from their natural famlies and into the educational institutions for prolonged hours. I doubt that parents – under normal circumstances – even get to see their own children much when they are working.Fair enough, there is the ability to learn through Teams or Zoom but then, there are also a lot of families who don’t have sufficient Internet access yet.

Here in Tower Hamlets around 50% of people do not use the Internet regularly.

I am just perplexed why the media only pushes Sadiq Khan’s request to close schools and doesn’t equally publish about the other education strategies equally strong.

property owning democracy

I can highly recommend watching Andrew Marr’s mini series of the “New Elizabethans with Andrew Marr“. He has some excellent ways of putting things into a context that explains why the Queen is such a popular monarch. She doesn’t insist on channelling the sexuality of people to replace it with sheer and harsh justice.

Even Margaret Thatcher’s ideas of the property owning democracy is in a way revolutionary as it aims to dismantle the centralised ownership of the aristocracy and replace it with mass ownership of smaller parcels of land and property. That’s most likely the only reason why Tony Blair supported her so much.

Andrew Marr is one of the few people who grasps the basic and important concepts that drive social development. Why I woulnd’t go the same way as Mary Whitehouse and lament the deterioration of sexual habits, another intangible thing, is because it doesn’t lead anywhere.

Perhaps there is a sexual motive behind the police constantly stopping and searching black young men? There is a 2% sucess rate for searches. Yet, rioting and burning things down has not helped at all to reduce the social standing of black people in Britain. In a way, all poor people are treated like second class citizens, I can sing a song about that.

The British are great in winding up those who are easily emotionally stimulated. But carrying knives is – as many young people today seem to think helps them feel safer – is definitely not the solution.

Anti-crime is a better strategy than anti-sexual freedom.

I don’t think that the legal framework for individual ownership of all wordly property is fit for purpose. Home owners have a lot of uncertainties and problems to content with, which are far from satisfactory to resolve.

Example for this is that the Labour Party relaxed building regulations, which led to the installation of flammable materials, e.g. on the former Olympic Village 2012 in London and on Grenfell Tower. Because of the flamable material being owned by the owner of the flats, they now cannot sell the flats, nor can they afford to change the cladding on the 2012 Olympic village, leaving home owners unable to sell or move.

Home and house ownership makes people inflexible if they want to move. They rely on someobody else wanting to buy their existing dwelling to be able to move on. I spent a lot of time watching house-owner TV programs and some houses are in very remote locations or built in a very particular style and the chance that somebody else would want your existing property when you need to move for a job promotion for example are not 100%.

get vaccinated

Whatever your gripe is against vaccination, it is irrational and based on myth. We live in this world and if we want to stay as energetically healthy as possible, we need to be vaccinated. I have had the flu vaccination now and had absolutely no side-effects whatsoever.

Most years I make for 11 1/2 months of the year without the flu but those 2 weeks when I do get the flu, it just causes trouble. In the end, I would always ring the doctor just to be told that I have the flu. So just get vaccinated and save yourself 2 weeks of misery.

Toothless and jobless

It doesn’t really matter for us underlings which strategy Britain has towards the EU as we rely on the infrastructure they build to even survive. We have no decision-making powers whatsoever and better put up and shut up.

Shutting up is very wise for me at present because not only have the British succeeded in keeping me out of work but they also managed to remove almost all of my teeth without replacing them.

When I came to Britain in 1977 I had a job and I had a mouth full of teeth.

At the last occasion, when I had dental treatment, the dentist spent prolonged time to remove one of my healthy upper teeth. He drilled and drilled and broke and extracted. completely and utterly ridiculous to extract a healthy tooth because there is some surrounding soft tissue skin problem. I had no choice but to comply because had I refused, they would have refused treating the infection anyway and then blamed me for having refused treatment.

But there we are, we underling patients have no way whatsoever to argue with our NHS heroes. Saying anything makes us immediately complicated and unpleasant patients.

I think dental services are the abyss of the NHS. They have no bigger problem but doing people’s teeth. There is almost not one person in the public domain with bad teeth. Teeth are the epithamy of leadership and admiration.

So if they remove your teeth, that is just an expression of showing you that you have no power and that is the way they bully you these days.

I refuse to spend my last penny for having private treatment for the teeth the NHS has removed. I think they should have an ‘A tooth for a tooth’ policy. If the NHS removes a tooth, they should have a duty to replace it.

But so far I’ve had no luck. I am not being given a denture that I can wear.

Coppers in the Woods

Stayed up till 2:15 AM last night because the issue of Inspector Morse “The Way through the Woods” was fasscinating. It showed the dilemma of two different detectives and how their methods clashed in solving a crime.

One wanted to beat a confession out of an innocent man to make his job easier and get a quick tick on the charge sheet whilst Inspector Morse took his time and went the difficult route, looking at all evidence in details and eventually solved the case, after some deliberations.

Even though the technology is old and they do smoke and drink a lot, the dialogues are very good. I am very annoyed with the amount of smoking and drinking and I doubt I could even share a room with somebody who smokes that much and I also doubt that in real life anybody could do a proper job, drinking the amount of alcohol they drink in those old films, but, the dialogues are priceless.

One thing I noticed though that the advertisements on ITV are very much tailored to their expected audience and some stuff you would never see during prime-time television.

Love cooking

Just wonderful, I’ve never seen a depressed or unhappy cook. They all love what they do and enjoy eating it. Saturday mornings, brings a large selection of cookery programs on a lot of channels.

Nice celebrities

If you want to let your kids learn good manners, let them watch the Celebs in the Jungle in Wales.

Nice people, personalities, can’t fault them. There is no hatred, no jealousy, just supporting each other and being helpful towards each other. Sooooooooooooooo sensible in all scenarios.

I would never have thought that British celebs are such wonderful people for real.

decision-making process

Emotional dependance is often the cause of people getting themselves involved with criminal people, who manipulate a person to commit to wrong-doing systematically.

On the other hand, quick thinking and getting involved would have saved me £10 on the Lidl Christmas jumper.

Yesterday it was in the shelves for £7.99, I walked past and today it wasn’t there was I wanted it. So I had to spend £18.10 to get it from eBay.

Since I do a lot of shopping in Lidl, which is just across the road from me, I didn’t realise how much I needed to get this jumper to make my Christmas feel OK. That’s a form of emotional dependance.

Whilst I now watch a Panorama film about an American woman going to Syria with her husband and getting back – after he had been killed in Syria – to the US and being prosecuted for terrorism. Title: “return from Isis”.

I am grateful that my emotional dependance, at it’s worst, only ever got me to spend extra money for a Lidl Christmas jumper, whilst otherwise I am much to do about law and order in Britain.

If it was against the law to go shopping in Lidl, as a former EU trading partner, I probably woulnd’t do it, but is is lawful and so its’ OK to do it.

Unfortunately not all people think whether their actions are lawful and get themselves involved in wrong-doing, that becomes unravelled over time and leads to imprisonment or worst.

Unfortunately the BBC serial East Enders is much more positive about involvement with crime in Britain and doesn’t show the pitfalls of doing wrong as clearly as they show the pitfalls of getting involved with Isis, ending up in death and imprisonment.

I think that American woman could raise the funds to get back from Syria with her children, whilst Shamima Begum, currently can’t raise the money or facilitate her return and she is being prevented from coming baack and also her children had died in Syria.

If young people only tought advice from their peers prior to making life-changing decisions, that would save them a lot of problems and prevent loss of life.

Shamima’s a loose woman

Just watching today’s edition of loose women and it’s simple. Shamima Begum has become a loose woman. She has gotten lost as well.

It’s an unfortunate example of how badly teenagers can miscalculate their options once they leave home.

Kids just cannot imagine what life is like without all the safety nets our civilisation provides for chilren who simply stay at home and get that central heating and the regular meals and that roof over their heads.

Some get hot-headed listen to groomers online and go off into the unknown to find they end up on sheer horror.

I alwas think schools should teach more life-style, essential life skills and relate it to their actual environments. Kids really lack the reality check of life in school. For some, they just think that all the mod-cons comes automaticlaly until they suddenly are no longer there. When children, who ran away find themselves in the streets, exposed to the dangers, then it is too late to turn the clock back.

It certainly is too late for Shamima.

Yes, they get taught the three r’s but some just can’t relate it to how their life evolves around their home and how their home keeps them safe and is a springboard to their own lives later in a civilised society.

I must admit it is hard for kids to learn what’s right or wrong if they watch programs like East Enders. Their storylines evolve all around how families commit crimes together. I stopped watching that now.

I allow my kids to use as much online as they like but they also then need to choose, which context is useful towards those A-levels and university later. Sixth form schools and universities use iPads, phones, tablets for course delivery and online learning. We just can’t forbit the children to go online.

The goal setting must come from the children as well as fom the adults. If a child doesn’t care about their own future, then they are either depressed or just cannot be helped. Today a child can be prosecuted aged 10 for murder; a 15 year old must know what they are doing.

I don’t agree with Janet Street-Porter about her just being groomed and she had no choice to resist the grooming.

Though as a society we tend not to accept failure how ever difficult a problem is with children.

Fed up with East Enders

I am not sure whether the BBC is trying to portrait all East Enders as potential criminal or inherent criminals or criminals regardless. It’s totally up-setting that they show criminals als charming family people who happen to think that robbing others is the thing to do.

From the story lines, for a child for example who would watch it, they would be shown that it is totally normal to feel symphaty for a robber boyfriend, who goes through a tough time, trying to escape police.

There is not even a hint of wrong-doing. Just as one of the most popular East Enders characters, Kat is shown vowing to stand by her robber boyfriend no matter what.

There is no ability of anybody to relate this as being wrong or showing how wrong doing in the long run leads to problems and that it would be better not to do it in the first place.

Even the local copper policeman is in a relationship with the son of the family mafia boss, Phil and does his best to help him escape because he loves him so much.

I am not complaining about the same sex relationship. I am complaining about the wrongdoing in law, in that a copper helps a robber.

There is nothing worst than a bad police officer.

I think that the BBC should not be showing such tripe.

It is very hurtful that East Enders are generally shown as criminals by the BBC.
