Going Rogue / Independent / Considering a “new home”

Some of the more observant among you may have noticed that ConservativeChitChat has been losing it’s MoJo recently, and you’d be right.

It’s not just because there isn’t any UK elections to sink my fangs into at the moment, it’s been kind of going on since the stitch-up to install May as PM after Cameron quit, and the party seems to have gravitated from positive fizz to spreading bollocks from Project Fear Mk1 and Mk2, and not really providing anything I can put much enthusiasm behind any more after the best part of many years of considering it the only sane choice before I even started seriously following politics or had any interest in paying attention to the news because I was young enough to be more interested in watching Thundercats or Rugrats. I first cast a vote for the party back in that fateful 1997 General Election some 21yrs ago when I was finally old enough, and officially started actually joining the party on-and-off probably around 2004/2005, maybe when I’ve been able to spare the membership fee.

It would appear I’m maybe not the only one been feeling this lately?

I’ll still back certain party politicians who still seem to be on my side of the argument, including (but not limited to):

  • Boris Johnson
  • Jacob Rees-Mogg
  • John Redwood
  • Priti Patel
  • Daniel Hannan
  • David Davis
  • Owen Paterson
  • Andrea Jenkyns
  • Penny Mordaunt
  • Philip Davies
  • David C. Bannerman
  • Liz Truss
  • Lucy Allan

I’ll probably also still pitch-in the occasional policy idea when time & energy allows, and try to keep the site and blog updating on a more frequent basis.

Chequers Plan, Project Fear 2 – May Must Go

Well, that “told you so” moment I had a feeling was gonna happen has finally happened.

Just as I had feelings that turned out pretty accurate that Team Brexit would win the referendum and that Donald Trump would become President as early as when he made the first whisperings of running when it was clear Romney would lose to Obama – I also had feelings that Theresa May would make a pretty lame leader of the Conservative party as a last minute bodge after Mr & Mrs Gove took Boris out of the contest.

With the arrival of the Chequers fake-Brexit plan, and the more recent arrival of “Project Fear 2.0”, she’s going down faster than Wile E. Coyote falling off the edge of a cliff.

The Chequers plan has gone down so badly with Grassroots members that local party bosses are seeing 75-90%+ of members giving it the finger, resigning membership, or can no longer be arsed to campaign for the party due to lack of things to be able to offer that they agree with. Even the chairman of her own local party is against it.

Make British Tax Rules Simple Again – Post Brexit Policies

I distinctly recall that since at least prior to the 2010 General Election, experts were calling for the UK’s Tax Rule Book to be simplified.
There was definitely an article on the Daily Mail Website in September 2011 saying we should rip up the tax rule book and start again, and prior to that in April 2011 the Taxpayer’s Alliance released a video “World’s Fastest Speaker vs the UK Tax Code” to show how ridiculously large it had become at 11,000 pages.
The video seems to have long vanished from the interweb, but the TPA’s Blog post still appears to be there about it, and according to my records by the time the Conservative/LibDem coalition were done with it, the rule book instead of shrinking had increased by another 6000 pages of rules by February 2015.

Therefore as part of the policy review I blogged about earlier, I suggest creating a target of slashing the rule book to 7500 pages by 2025 and 3000 pages by 2030 if we aren’t prepared to take the easier route suggested 7-years ago and just re-write the damn things from scratch with a clean sheet of paper.

Basically, if using motoring references to describe the size of the tax rule book, with the New Labour Government (1997 to 2010) they’d increased from the size of a Ford Focus to the size of a Range Rover.

By the time the coalition government had finished with them, they’d expanded to the size of an armoured personnel carrier.

I’m not sure how bad they’ve gotten since, as I haven’t seen any reports giving an update, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they’d expanded to the size equivalent of an HGV or a Railway Locomotive.

If Britain is to succeed in a post-Brexit world, we need to strive to shrink them back down to the size of a light and nimble Aerial Atom or Caterham Super7 instead of being a lumbering dinosaur with a gammy leg.

Perhaps even take another look at Flat Taxes, maybe?

Conservatives Launch Post-Brexit Election Policy Study Thingy

Naturally, I’ll probably try come up with a few things to pitch-in via these blogs + social media accounts.

I’ve already got a couple of drafts sat in the folder ready to finish when I have time, and a few more forming in the other drafts folder known as my head waiting for me to quit procrastinating and just write the damn things down in a blog so I can throw ’em into the ring.

Kathy Griffin is a Massive Racist

Not only is the so called comedian a sicko who now currently looks like one of those f***ing “Elf on the Shelf” figures that come out at Christmas time, but now it turns out she’s also a massive racist…. and the real sort, not the fake ones leftists accuse people of being when they’re losing the argument…..

Apologies if the photo in the second tweet caused anyone to vomit at the sight of it…

Google Seems To Be Getting Less Useful For Sane People

I’ve started noticing this for the past year or two, and then I tried to do the search for climate articles on Breitbart to back-up something I was answering on Yahoo Answers.

Doing the search for “Site:Breitbart.com + Climate” brought-up jack-sh*t on Google apart from an extract from a biased Wikipedia article. Doing the same search on Bing brought up actual results.

Suddenly Google seems to have worked properly now I’ve tweeted out the issue prior to starting this article.

But I’ve noticed similar issues on Google before, for instance doing searches about Obama admin scandals brings up Snopes as a top result followed by a crap load of results from left-wing rags lightly trying to paper over the scandal.

Snopes used to be a respected sources for debunking BS on the Internet, now it’s not so much it seems:

California Nightmarin’

To most fellow outsiders, California is a happy state full of sunshine, beaches, baywatch babes, vineyards, Hollywood celebs & stuff like that… with perhaps the odd drought, earthquake or wildfire.

Evidence I’ve seen lately points to quite the opposite, this article is not intended to beat the crap out of a place I don’t like because I actually like the place, just not the way it’s been run in recent times.

What I’ve seen of the area around the Golden Gate Bridge is one of my most favourite on the Planet I’d like to go take a closer look at some day if I wasn’t broke asf.

I also like the look of the area around Santa Monica Pier from what I’ve seen on Google Streetview + a number of big names in the world of posting YouTube Videos.

Even my current last likely hope of getting hitched is from California.

Housing over in California has become seriously freakin’ expensive, I had a poke around on a Real Estate website a few weeks back, and small Bungalow type houses I’ve seen fetching $175,000 tops in more down to earth States like Illinois / Ohio / Texas / Arkansas were shifting for around $1.5million

Things had gotten so bad that people even in fairly decent paying jobs have had to take to living in an RV on an insane scale, and from what I could tell from the same vids about the situation is much of it is caused by foreign investors from Asia snapping up properties and sitting on them. Also housing developers don’t seem to be helping either by trying to cure a shortage of affordable housing by building more freakin’ expensive housing.

One of the key highlights of the USA is their penchant for liberty & free speech. Unfortunately California seems to have gained a number of lawmakers who don’t appear to be too big on that kind of stuff. Unless you break immigration law to enter the United States, just not if you’re a born & bred American.

Cross your fingers the Democrats in California get the boot soon and replaced with sane people
