#GE2017. Tactical Vote? Don’t Accidentally Vote for a Blairite.

Many voters are planning to ‘vote tactically’ this general election in order to remove the Tories from power. Despite Jeremy Corbyn and Tim Farron officially rejecting calls for such a progressive alliance, some local constituencies are making the necessary preparations already.

In order for Corbyn’s insurrection to really succeed, it is important to remember that the Labour party is infested with Blairite double agents. Blairites are politicians who support the so called ‘centrist’ neo-liberal nightmare of former Prime Minister and war criminal, Tony Bleurgh.

If you choose to participate in this year’s General Election, be sure not to accidentally vote for a Blairite!

The Blairite response to the snap election was to sharpen their knives in preparation for yet another chicken coup attempt.

This time they put forward Yvette Cooper as their candidate for ‘post-Corbyn’ leader..

REMEMBER!

Voting is only one, extremely limited way of influencing change. Your daily life choices have a more significant influence on the world around you. Your attitude, behaviour and spending habits carry more weight than our broken democracy.

If you must participate in party politics, be sure your candidate reflects your values, principles and ideals. If there is no candidate doing this in your constituency, lobby your least worst candidate on the issues that matter to you, or consider running yourself.

All power to those trying to repair Parliament, inside and out.

Whether you choose to participate or not, stay strong.

Don’t allow this broken system to break you.

BRAGGING RIGHTS! Beautiful Trouble are quoting Ann Narkeh on their homepage! :D

Is it narcissistic to brag about an achievement like this?
Is it even really an achievement, or a thing?
It is for me!  (even if you do have to refresh the page half a million times to find the quote…)

I felt a similar way when meeting Russell Brand…and when David Graeber retweeted me that one time,…and when the Canary said those nice things about the Occupied Sun,…but Noam Chomsky was the one who told me that gratuitous namedropping isn’t cool, so I didn’t brag about it…too much! 😉 (!)

In all seriousness though, I love the beautiful solutions in Beautiful Trouble.os_bookreview_beautifultrouble

The review I wrote, which they’ve quoted from could never do real justice to my deep affection for both the ongoing work and the people doing it.

I feel very proud to be namedropped by them alongside so many great individuals and organisations I admire and respect so much.

Yay Ann Narkeh Media!

🙂

That is all.

As you were.

Carry on.

#GE2017: Seriously Considering Voting, Despite the Crushing Realities of Corporate Rule.

I’ve never voted, despite being seriously tempted to in recent years. With the snap general election announced, I’m now considering it more seriously than ever before.

I ‘vote’ with the little money that I have, by consuming as little and as ethically as I can. I try to make life choices which I consider more significant than a ‘vote’ on the establishment’s terms. The party political spectacle is ubiquitous and hypnotic though. It is forced upon us, to maintain the illusion of democracy while dividing and conquering most of us.

Not voting is generally frowned upon by those who do. Voters say things like, “You’re disrespecting the people who died for your right to vote“. Respectfully, the greater disrespect is to ignore the blatant corruption of the institutions which people fought and died for, surely? Participating in ‘elections’ and ‘referendums’ only validates a corrupted structure. Regardless who is ‘in power’ in parliament we are ruled by banks and corporations, as we have ever been. The Tories, their Blairite chums here and the 45th American presidency should by now have made this abundantly clear for all with eyes to see and ears to hear.

Elections and referendums provide the vital illusion of democracy, while restricting the parameters of mainstream debate and consciousness. They are less about democracy and more about sculpting objective reality. We are encouraged to have ‘opinions’ on ‘discussions’ which are controlled to deliver the outcome preferred by corporate overlords. These ‘discussions’ are more often than not divisive, absurdly polarised slagging matches (see Brexit). Meanwhile, debates of actual substance (TTIP, or whatever they’re calling it now, NATO, foreign policy, ‘security’, nuclear ‘deterrents’ etc) are had in private. Prior to the digital age, ‘shadow governance’ was dismissed as a fringe conspiracy theory. Today though, many of these theories have been substantiated, particularly those concerning toxic banking (see ‘too big to fail’).

Are insurrections within the mechanics of power, like those of Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn staged or genuine? If they are genuine, is it really possible for such insurrections to influence real change within structures which are so demonstrably corrupt, or will they always be quelled?

WONKAVOTING

The only political party that really inspires me to ask this question is the Green Party of England and Wales. I’ve been tracking their activity for some years now. Their rhetoric is not hollow. They talk the talk and walk the walk. Their manifesto is outside the controlled parameters of debate. Their policies are solution based. They are 100% funded by their members and supporters, actively avoiding the toxic investments which have polluted the mainstream political parties. They’re calling for a progressive alliance “giving people the best possible chance of defeating the Conservatives and bringing in a truly democratic voting system”. (as I’m writing this, Corbyn and Farron have rejected these calls, again…). The policies and campaigns the Greens support almost exactly mirror my own (though their methods to promote these policies and campaigns differ somewhat).

For these reasons and many more, I recognise the Greens as the only real opposition serious about reforming parliament. This is why they are so marginalised by the controlled media.

Getting rid of the Tories would be good, but the absence of a truly democratic voting system is the more substantial root which we would do well to properly weed lest they return. This fundamental reform has been one of the main planks of the Green’s manifesto for a long time. Is it a deliverable promise, or the sweetest of false hopes? Am I naive to be even thinking about participating this time? Or could voting really be another platform from which to direct real change?

I’ve got over a month to decide whether I can stomach registering – May 22nd is the deadline. Any and all advice would be gratefully received.

Regardless whether I vote or not, I will certainly be doing whatever else I can to support the Greens’ efforts to unfuck parliament over the next two months and beyond.

Perhaps this election really could be an opportunity to finally direct our consciousness out of the myopic box of nightmares it has been trapped in for so long, towards a fairer, saner future.

BREXSHIT The Movie [Animation]

BREXSHITMOVIEPOSTER2I noticed that The Artist Taxi Driver has been using the BREXSHIT poster I made for him in his recent youtube videos – so I decided to reformat it into 1080 x 720 proportions – then got carried away again animating it all – hope you like it Chunky!

“100s of interviews with people from all walks of life… uploaded in realtime, a unique “open source practice”, an important social document, a witness to our times, culminating in a major, in an extra ordinary, 3hour 30 minute movie.. 12months of filming… Brexshit the Movie coming soon the rise of the right and how to defeat it”

If you can afford to sling Mark a few quid, please do – he’s almost reached his crowdfunding target of £15k.

You can watch the film develop in realtime on the Artist Taxi Driver youtube channel.

There’s loads more BREXIT/BREXSHIT counter propaganda on this site.

BREXSHIT MOVIE POSTER 2

The Artist Taxi Driver has almost reached his £15k crowdfunding target for his next film; BREXSHIT The Movie – Well done that man!

“100s of interviews with people from all walks of life… uploaded in realtime, a unique “open source practice”, an important social document, a witness to our times, culminating in a major, in an extra ordinary, 3hour 30 minute movie.. 12months of filming… Brexshit the Movie coming soon the rise of the right and how to defeat it”

I couldn’t afford to chip in to Mark’s crowdfunder, so I made him this poster instead:

brexshitmovieposter
Mark liked it, but it’s a pretty low res photo (was the best shot I could find) and he asked if I could do it again in higher definition.

I might have gotten a bit carried away, playing with fire…

BREXSHITMOVIEPOSTER2.png

Hope you like it Chunky!

I didn’t participate in the EU referendumb (because I don’t negotiate with terrorists), but I’m a big fan of Mark’s work and trust him to get to the root of what BREXIT’s really all about.

You can watch the film develop in realtime on the Artist Taxi Driver youtube channel.

However you voted, (or didn’t), BREXSHIT the movie will almost certainly cast some light on our objective reality. If you can afford to sling Mark a few quid, please do.
