Lutheran tactics

Picture taken from Extinction Rebellion Facebook page. This publication does not mean that I support this activity.

When Martin Luther nailed his thesis’ on the door of the Gutenberg Church in 1517, it meant a revolution was about to start in the church. The posters reading ‘Closed for Good’ plastered by Extinction Rebellion on businesses doors are not so different. This relationship in methods is probably one reason to the fact that our local Church of England Pastor strongly supports Extinction Rebellion and makes his church available to them for meetings and helps to disrupt local traffic at the nearby junction.

One of the XR hashtags also is very similar that John McDonnell wrote Another World is possible, a Manifesto for the 21st. Century.

No wonder the Labour Party has made a pact with Extinction Rebellion to turn over the power politically.

I am wondering whether this is approriate to associate Climate change with political direction.

Climate Change action is used as political pressure point.

Obviously the current Lockdown measures have significantly reduced carbon emissions around the world and especially in London, so how appropriate is that activity.

Considering that production methods are a matter of scientific research, and results of implementation, it seems trivial to hang a protest movement on this.

The negativity of Extinction Rebellion is outweighing all the positive impacts they could have. Show me how much leeway there is being made to implement new production methods, heating methods to change our central heating systems from using gas to different sources of heat, would be much more beneficial to us.

I could not see Labour opposing classic producton methods for the sake of the environment in the past. In Fact Labour always supported everything as long as jobs were saved.

 

The new worldwide empire

I think we are into the Future and worldwide agreements between leaders have nipped most protests into the bud. Perhaps it was the media’s fault but even they don’t report about any life-changing protests around the world any longer.

Whilst the Guardian desperately tries to revive the former Extinction Rebellion movement, the Hong Kong protests have died down with the Corona Virus fears.

Stay at home. That one sentence doesn’t only save the NHS resources but it also stops all protesters from roaming our streets, transport systems and our media.

Fact is that the ne Stay at Home rule is extremely environmentally friendly. Wordwide carbon production has greatly reduced. So all those who bought properties in vulnerable socialist run areas, to infultrate our society with ever growing environmental protest groups have wasted all their money and energy.

Environmental protests have been bought by left-wing activists to harm established production chains and turn society around.

Whilst I do not believe that Corona Virus is a new virus, I believe it has only now formally been identified and discovered. And in future world governments will probably fall into a new cold war over the decision whose fault Corona Virus actually was.

Obvioulsy all the western nations love to see China as the culprit.

Corona Virus is the new weapon of international law enforcement to keep the population in control.

Concerning is the fear that was voiced by some doctors that all people who fall ill will be treated as Corona Virus patients and regardless of their actual illness get put into one of these huge new hospitals and put on ventilators. There are no testing kits widely available and you may well have another illness but get treated for Corona and die away in an anonymous bed.

Elderly patients are asks to sign a ‘Do not resuscitate clause’ upon entering a hospital and we are all best advised to avoid having accidents because we may not get the treatment we need.

For those who got the virus, it seems an agonising time but for those who stay healthy and fit, they do not know what all the fuss is about.

Lets just compare statistics and find out whether the death rate that has now been attributed to Corona virus is actually much higher than the normal death rate. Don’t we have people dying of illnesses anyhow? Why do all people who die now suddenly all die of Corona Virus?

 

 

TV ads instead of demos

Whilst Extinction Rebellion are trying to sell us their story, they do so by stopping traffic, apologetic, no less, they cause a disturbance.

They say, they need to do this, to make us aware of the climate agenda.

But, what about taking out a TV ad instead. You cannot reach more people than with a TV ad. XR got lots of money, they have extremely rich sponsors, so TV ads, should be affordable for them.

And as it is such a good cause, ITV or other commercial channels may even chip in and half the price?

Apparently the Chief Medical officer, constantly appears in between our favourite program to remind us of corona Virus dangers, he wouldn’t dream stopping traffic to remind a few drivers of the dangers.

Obviously XR want to use the issue to radicalise ‘rebel’s, teach them how to interrupt and feel good about it. They use and abuse us to train political resistance.

The naughty list

I need to support it that Extinction Rebellion are listed on a Counter Terror Police list as organisation of concern.

It is not about the aim, it is about the method. Anybody can pronounce they are doing it for the good of us all but if they, in fact, disrupt our daily lives severely and cause extreme expenses to our policing budgets, which prevents our police to concentrate on other pressing issues, must be seen as a concern to national security.

Don’t support traffic stopping demos

We all want to do something sensible about earth warming and stop global carbon emissions. Yet the traffic stopping demonstrations that Extinction Rebellions lays on, do exactly the opposite from what we are trying to achieve.

Those demos stop traffic and make cars spew out more exhaust fumes as they otherwise would.

Research has totally unquestionably proven that flowing traffic causes less damage to our air than standing traffic does.

A recent survey carried out in Milton Keynes for example shows that cities with roundabouts create less emission than those without. We can follow on that stopping traffic at classic junctions cause the problem.

“The Milton Keynes roundabouts do two things – they reduce stop-start driving which reduces production of pollution, and they make space to help the pollution dilute and mix away,” said Prof Mackenzie. “The biggest effect green spaces have on air pollution in urban areas is to provide space for that pollution to disperse.”

Whilst many support Great Thunberg and Save Our Planet initiatives, we should not support the show-stopping demonstrations of Extinction Rebellion, which ruin our air quality. We do not stop earth warming by making traffic even more dangerous than it already is.

Avoid the demo in Bethnal Green on 22. February as it will create enormous traffic tail backs as we get a lot of through traffic from the West End to the M25 and all going East and North street traffic.

Cynically the demo in Tower Hamlets is going to be called ‘Enough is enough’. We should tell Extinction Rebellion that their ancient methods do not help develop a better society, they just make our air dirtier than it already is.

 

 

Honest decisions

I respect former Chancellor Sajid Javid’s decision to stand up to the government after all. One sees he is a grassroots politician because he can’t forfeit his advisors who helped him all along. He can’t discard them for a new team, appointed from above, just prior to the delivery of his first budget.

Character is also shown by the former Tower Hamlets, Conservative Councillor Andrew Wood, who stood down, a day after he had been refused – again – a potential parliamentary candidacy spot from his party. Being the only one of two opposition team councillors, together with councillor Peter Gold, Councillor Wood was tending to help against the closure of Raine’s Foundation school. Yet, the very rules his own government introduced made opposition to the Labour Council’s decision impossible.

Perhaps the more rules, the Tories’ introduce, which turn out to work against historic principles, – in this case a Church of England school having to close in an increasingly Islamic council – the more their own grassroots representatives feel unable to actually oppose Labour decision-making, especially if those decisions are strictly following government rules.

The results of the Big Society is markedly visibly also on our own housing estate, where the local community centre becomes less and less available to local residents for family occasions on Saturday afternoons but stays open for Extinction Rebellion to cook up disruptions to London’s daily life.

Community Centres need to be for the community but if the community has no ability to actually run the centre, the availability becomes solely available for those who have the money to pay and don’t need close supervision. Of course Extinction Rebellion, sponsored by Billionnaires has plenty of money to rent local community centres, whether they are on the Police dodgy list or not.

I think local residents should be consulted on whether they will support that their community centres are used by radical groups or not.

I have decided to be cautious and no longer promote the decisions of the local Residents Association, who are very partial to Extinction Rebellion. Though they are all home owners, it’s not the poor local tenants who help those causes.

I’ve run a local website to promote Neighbourhood Watch and community safety but perhaps the close association with Extinction Rebellion has promted my local Residents Association to ask me to ensure that I do not represent them on my website.

We all have to be able to do as we see fit and act in our own and the best interest of those around us.

Funnily enough, Tower Hamlets have just announced a demonstration around Bethnal Green Station for the 22. February, which will bring all traffic to a standstill. Our council will be pleased that they were able to prepare that activity in one of their local Community Centres here in Tower Hamlets.

 

XR school strike this Friday

Just as all pupils in London either have started their GCSE mock exams this Monday, which will go on till the end of next week or start their GCSE mocks next Monday, Extinction Rebellion is calling for a school strike this Friday.

Why do this in the middle of the important GCSE mock exam?

It really is not necesary to prevent pupils from getting good grades by spending a day out of school at this time of year.

There are other, more suitable days – for example during holidays to do this.

XR are the new A

A stylized 'A' with a circle around it.

They yused to be called Anarchists and put all those A’s in a circle around our towns. You hardly see them now but instead we have Extinction Rebellion, who want to rid us of everything usual.

The cost of policing the Extinction Rebellion protests was huge. So far they had bills of

  • 3.5 Million for overtime
  • 6 Million for officers drafted in from 38 other forces
  • 11.8 Million staffing costs

for two weeks of protests, with costs constantly rising. As ER are supported by Billionnaires, they should have to pay those costs.

I used to support Extinction Rebellion’s online petition against the concrete works near the Olympic Park, that was an acceptable form of protest. I know they use our local community centre to do their road blocking art works and I shall – as a member of the committee – argue strongly that Extinction Rebellion will no longer be allowed to use our community hall to make their implements. If you don’t want our community hall used for making road obstructions please feel free to follow this link and contact the Secretary of the Residents Association.

We need new rules in what is sensible and what is a nuisance. Think, does it help me, does it help us now and in the future. If the answer is yes, then support and if it is no, do not support.

If XR really loved us they went spend all those billions, they have into installing vertical Moss walls onto our most polluted roads and put more trees out there.

 

 

 

 

 

Keeping level-headed

81345182-1905041525+-+London+Regional+Summer+Championships+2019I was helping para-swimmers during the London Regional Swim England Para Championships at the London Aquatics Centre yesterday.

Whilst I had planned to watch the TV debate about the forthcoming Brexit date and had an invite to attend the huge demo in central London, I had completely forgotten that I had signed up to help out with the swimming event.

That is what’s really important that we keep services for people going and not disrupt everything like Extinction Rebellion obviously think is the right way to go about things.

Whatever somebody wants to achieve, the main objective always needs to be that whilst there is a long-term goal, we always need to be able to let those on the ground to get about their daily business.

Thankfully we have great laws and good rules in place, which prevent from crash-outs and catastrophic failures of our services.

Making sure there are food supplies, people can stay save, health care, education and communications stay in tact, are just a few of the things, which do not seem important but they really, really are.

London disruptions funded by billionnaires and philanthropists

There we have it, riches are concentrated among a small minority of elitists and once they realise that their previous business enrichment has been causing serious damange to the planet – because its the rich who are in charge of all business around the world – they simply finance a protest movement that aims to change things.

Those include:

  • Sir Christopher Hohn
  • Aileen Getty (oil heiress)
  • Radiohead (band)
  • Crowd funding (6.000 people donated £600.000 in a week)

But why concentrate the actions on London? The sponsors assume that no civil disobidience took place! Is that living in dream land?

The working people of London are unable to earn a living normally and they have to cope with triple the stress than normal!

Those donations should be used to pay for the extra policing effort it took to control those demonstrations. We need police to fight crime. We hear of stabbing every day and there is little police available to patrol our streets.

Perhaps those who lost out financially through the actions should take some steps to recover their monies. Now they know whom to ask.

So that is irresponsible.

Just heard that in Manchester a criminal has stabbed several people in a horrible incident. That is what we need our police for, not for making sure that those weird looking Extinction Rebellion demos are policed.
