The EU not the UK is blocking citizens rights.

Yesterday, the Telegraph reported that it was the EU, not the UK, that has been blocking citizens rights.

Revealed: How EU has been secretly plotting to block Theresa May over EU migrants for weeks

They report that “The EU has been plotting for weeks to thwart Theresa May’s plans to secure a deal for British expats in Europe and migrants in the UK.”

Allegedly documents seen by the Telegraph disclose that Mrs May made exactly the same demand to Donald Tusk, the European Council president, at a meeting three weeks earlier. The EU had privately decided to block any deal, leaked documents show, but did not want to reveal such a move publicly.

For weeks, we have endured a barrage of people crying out against the UK government, calling for the rights of the UK and European migrant rights to be safeguarded, Yet all along it has beenBrusselss that has been blocking this move.

Will we now hear a rush to apologise to Theresa May and her government… not likely! No, they will just move on quietly not daring to speak out against the EU, not daring to call then out for their bullying stans on Brexit. Not they will move n to find some other fault with Britan, something else to bring us down.

EU Bullies.

Jean-Claude Juncker and his bullying buddies in the EU need someone to stand up to them.

It is becoming increasingly clear that the EU intend to make Brexit as painful as possible, and are (unless stopped) going to do all they can to break the UK. From exorbitant cash demands to restrictions on our right to negotiate with the rest or the world.

Unless you stand up them, bullies continue to bully and will do the same not only to us but any other nation that might want its freedom.  We must, stand up to the bullies and say enough is enough.

Britain should not have to doff the cap to Brussels and say “yes sir,” and “no sir,” If they do not like us leaving…. tuff. We should not kowtow, and must not give in.

If they are going to demand a separation payment, then we should put the one twenty-seventh share of the assets of the EU that we own up on eBay for sale, and pay them out or the proceeds.

 

We will not need foreign workers for long.

Fox news is carrying a story that, Oxford University researchers have estimated that 47 percent of U.S. jobs could be automated within the next two decades!

In fact, friends of mine have been at a TV and Radio show where speakers were speculating that the job culling will start much faster than the next two decades, they were speculating that we could be losing a great number of Jobs withing the next two years.

It may well be that the call from groups like the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) saying that it has found that 21% of small firms currently employ staff from an EU country and that more than half that 21% are worried that they will not be able to recruit the right staff in the future without EU migrants.

This, of course, raises a whole series of questions like…

  • Why can not a UK citizen do the job?
  • And if the answer is that there are not enough skilled workers in the UK, how come the much poorer countries from Europe can produce quality qualified staff, who are sufficiently fluent in English to meet employers needs, while the UK can not?

But is it just possible that the question is somewhat mute…

Will robots take over the vacancies left by EU migrants by the time article 50 reaches the end of is process?

[When in this article we talk of robots, we may not be talking about humanoid machines, but also computer programs or algorithms that will be working somewhere on a server.]

What Jobs will these robots be taking?

Will they all be simple manual jobs like we see in the car factories?

No, according to Shelly Palmer, (Named one of LinkedIn’s Top 10 Voices in Technology), many of the next lines of jobs to go will be white-collar jobs! In an article on his blog, he lists five areas he expects to come under the reapers scythe over the next few years.

1 – Middle Management.

He says, “If your main job function is taking a number from one box in Excel and putting it in another box in Excel and writing a narrative about how the number got from place to place, robots are knocking at your door. Any job where your “special and unique” knowledge of the industry is applied to divine a causal relationship between numbers in a matrix is going to be replaced first. Be ready.”

If you are in middle management and think that it is only shop floor workers who are under immediate threat… think again.

2 – Commodity Salespeople (Ad Sales, Supplies, etc.)

If you are in sales and do not add something significantly more to you employer than specifications, price and availability, start thinking about your next gig.

Commodity sales will go the way of Amazon for retail sales. A computer can now beat humans at poker more times than not… they will be better at negotiating business than you are.

3 – Report Writers, Journalists, Authors & Announcers

Already a lot of sports and financial/business reporting is being generated by robots, or rather by a computer algorithm that can instantly sift massive amounts of data and come up with analysis that is readable and sound human.

4 – Accountants & Bookkeepers

A huge amount of accountant and bookkeeping functions are now being handled by computers connected to your bank, order received process and stock control. Soon with will step beyond handling the mundane maths and into fully fledge account management.

5 – Doctors

Robots make amazing doctors, diagnosticians and surgeons.

IBM’s Watson and other pattern matching algorithms are becoming extremely competent at analysing samples and diagnosing disease.

much or your eye test is now actually done in a second with a machine. Today this needs to be administered by a trained technicians and reviewed by an ophthalmologist, but how long until you camera on your phone will be able to perform this service for you with you just following three or four simple instructions. I believe this is already being done in some third world countries.

One company is coming out with a smart toilet that will analyse your… wee and poo everytime you use it. Not yet, but one day it will be fitted everywhere, and not only a huge number of lab tech will be out of work, but many illnesses will be being detected VERY early.

So what should we do?

An Obama administration era prediction suggested that “There is an 83% chance that workers who earn $20 an hour or less could have their jobs replaced by robots in the next five years. Those in the $40 an hour pay range face a 31% chance of having their jobs taken over by the machines.”

So what should/can we do?

In a word or two… I do not know.

If you think that your job could not be done by a robot or an algorithm, you are probably wrong.

Much of Amazon’s warehouses are automated to a large degree, and the human jobs that are still in these facilities are almost certain not there because they could not be replaced by a robot, but that it is not yet politically expedient to go human free.

In x years we will not have taxi drivers and probably not lorry drivers either. Supermarkets are losing till operators in favour of self-service checkouts. Probably the area that you need to be looking at for a healthy job expectancy are areas that include the words, ‘Craft’ or ‘handmade’ or ‘traditional’.

Maranatha, Come Lord Jesus.

Downing Street

General Election 2017

If you have been watching the UK TV or listening to the Radio or reading the newspapers this morning… you are probably already sick and tired of hearing about the British general election.

You still have over seven weeks of this to go!

[waiting name=”GE2017″]

For years I have voted for UKIP as I felt that the most important thing to be done was getting out of Europe. Yes, preventing the thousands of abortions are morally more important, but until you have taken control of your own law making, you could not even think of changing things like our abortion laws.

I think we are probably still in the position that what we need to do is to secure Brexit.

Other than that, I think we are still too early in the campaign to make any worthwhile comments on the election campaign so far.

Keep tuned for more comments.

Mixed Emotions!

What Drapper, you are manically pro-Brexit, how can you have mixed emotions?

Surely you are not having regrets now it is too late?

No, I am delighted with the fact that we have now triggered article 50.

I could not be happier that we are getting out of this Union, and the “ever closer union” that the EU has become.

I am glad that we will be able to make our own laws and live by our nation’s morals and ideas, standards etc. I am glad that, (and I still have some fears this may still come about), but I am glad that we should now not be part of the European Army and that Germany will not be seeking to get their hands on out Nuclear weapons.

What I am sad about it that is was necessary. The idea that after two world wars, Europe might say let’s be friends and instead of fighting, let’s trade, and co-operate, is a great idea. But that never was the intention of the founders of the EU, it was just the pack of lies that they used to entice nations into the trap.

It is sad that even after the recent world wars, people were still intent on world domination and getting control over other nations.

I am sad that so many people are being hurt by Brexit. Not hurt economically or in terms of employment or housing or… but hurt emotionally. And so much of this because of project fear that the ‘remain campaign’ is STILL playing.

It is time to get togeather and find a productive and positive future for the UK.

I am sorry that so many leaders in Europe are being, and are planning on being even more vindictive. All the anger and hate that the EU leaders show towards us, in my opinion, only goes to show that we are right to not want to be yoked to them. Trade with them, yes. Be in partnership or covenant with them… NO!

More on this in this weekend’s podcast.

Brexit under way…

Can it be true?

At last?

YES!

Theresa May has now signed the letter that will trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty and marks formally the beginning of the UK’s departure from the European Union.

This letter will be delivered to European Council president Donald Tuskby the British ambassador to the EU, Sir Tim Barrow.

Apparently, this will happen at 12:30 BST on Wednesday 29th March 2017. (I should be asleep)

The BBC are reporting that the prime minister, who will chair a cabinet meeting in the morning, will then make a statement to MPs confirming the countdown to the UK’s departure from the EU is under way.

The BBC are suggesting that the Key events and possible timings for Brexit are as follows.

  • 29 March, 2017 – UK triggers Article 50
  • 29 April – EU summit of the 27 leaders (without the UK) to agree to give the European Commission a mandate to negotiate with the UK
  • May – European Commission to publish negotiating guidelines based on the mandate the EU leaders give it. The EU might say something about possible parallel negotiation on a future EU-UK trade deal
  • May/June 2017 – Negotiations begin
  • 23 April and 7 May – French presidential elections
  • 24 September – German parliamentary elections
  • Autumn 2017 – The UK government is expected to introduce legislation to leave the EU and put all existing EU laws into British law – the Great Repeal Bill
  • October 2018 – Aim to complete negotiations
  • Between October 2018 and March 2019 – The Houses of Parliament, European Council and European Parliament vote on any deal
  • March 2019 – UK formally withdraws from the European Union (The Article 50 negotiations could be extended, but this is subject to the approval of the other 27 EU member states)

If we think that fight is over…. think again!

There are powerful forces in this world who are seeking to hold power over the world and are seeking to bring the whole world under one government.

Brexit may be a setback, but they plan for setbacks and will just pull out of the draw plan b or c or d… and move on.

They are on both sides of all major wars, and both sides of many elections. It does not matter who wins, it is always them.

I am just watching a video on corruption on the Royal Family!!! frightening. Contact me if you have any information.

Another reason we need Brexit.

Turkey’s interior minister has threatened to ‘blow the mind’ of Europe by sending 15,000 refugees a month to EU territory.

Suleyman Soylu is threatening the landmark deal signed by Ankara and Brussels last March that has substantially lessened the flow of migrants from Turkey to Europe.

The minister told Europe not to ‘play games’ and ‘ignore Turkey’ in a speech he gave on Thursday.

The deal between Ankara and Brussels is hanging in the balance due to the diplomatic crisis over the blocking of Turkish ministers from holding rallies in Europe.

‘If you want, we could open the way for 15,000 refugees that we don’t send each month and blow the mind of Europe,’ Soylu said.

HNS Nurse

Record numbers of EU nurses quit NHS… Why is this a problem?

The Guardian is reporting that “Record numbers of EU nurses quit NHS.”

My question is, Why is this a problem?

Yes, I do know that it is going to be a problem. I understand that we will be struggling to provide sufficient staff for the NHS if we do not have thousands of foreign workers…

But why?

According to the Guardian the “shocking numbers” are something like this, EU nationals registering as nurses in England has dropped by 92% since the Brexit referendum in June, and a record number are quitting the NHS.”

This, “haemorrhaging” of foreign staff is being blamed by the Royal College of Nursing, (RCN) on the failure of the government to provide EU nationals in the UK with any security about their future.

Instead of blaming this situation on Brexit and on the lack of security for EU nationals, (even though the government appear to have assured EU nationals that NUN of them will be told to leave.) Should we not be asking the much more foundational question of…

“Why is Britain dependent on foreigners to staff our health service?”

An estimated 57,000 EU nationals are working within the NHS. This figure includes 10,000 doctors and 20,000 nurses, which probably means that we have something like 25,000+ ancillary staff and cleaners etc.

It gets worse if you look at the bigger picture, 26% of doctors are not UK citizens. The British Medical Association observe that without the contribution of non-British staff, “many NHS services would struggle to provide effective care to their patients”.

The British Medical Association observe that without the contribution of non-British staff, “many NHS services would struggle to provide effective care to their patients”.

The Philippines alone is providing well over 12,000 of its nationals to help staff the NHS.

In 2015 the British government added nurses to the government’s shortage occupation list.

There should be some exchange of workers.

Now, while there is obviously some scope for foreign staff to be temporarily in the UK while there to improve their skills or the like, and while we may have some of our health workers abroad doing much the same thing or even helping in a deprived or needed area, surely a country like the UK should be, on the hold capable of providing its own health staff.

Britain should be able to supply workers for the NHS.

Janet Davies, chief executive and general secretary of the RCN, is describing the NHS as being, “in a staffing crisis like never before.” She also said, “The government has failed to train enough British nurses and cannot afford to lose the international workforce on which the NHS so heavily relies.”

In my opinion, this is not only true of nurses and doctors and other health workers but in many other areas of industry and business.

It is time we stopped arguing about this or that education reform. We need to go back to solid and sound education that leaves people willing and capable of gaining meaningful employment and becoming productive members of society.

A great nation like Britain should be capable of staffing the NHS.
