  1. We have these things popping up in Birmingham city centre. It's always the same thing - every new tower block or development that is 'announced' is made up of 'luxury apartments', with some kind of gym and 'retail offering' on the ground floor. The 15-minute 'smart' city is taking shape. Every couple of blocks you have some Spar, Costcutter or Nisa convenience store, as well as the Tesco Express, Sainsburys and Morrisons equivalents. Add in the usual blend of cafes and takeaways such as Costa, Starbucks, Subway etc, and of course why does every block need a gym? The idea being that everything you need is either in your block, or a short walk away. No need to own a car! Get a bus, tram or escooter around the city centre if you want/need to shop at the 'big brand' or designer stores, or just order online from Amazon and get everything else you need delivered to your door. There's no way I'd ever trade in my nice quiet suburban life, to move into one of these overpriced micro-apartments just for the 'convenience' of living in the city centre. If anything, my desire is to leave this suburb and have a nice quiet life out in a rural village by the coast.
  2. That is a good thing to consider. Yes, it is probably true that we are 'overdue' for some kind of event that occurs every 6000 years, but still no-one knows for certain exactly when this will happen. It could happen next week, it could happen in 50-100 years. But something else I take into consideration: just how accurate is our own current timeline? I read elsewhere before how our calendars and timelines have been altered to 'suit' certain narratives and agendas in the past. I remember reading one suggestion that about a 1000 years have been added on to our timeline, thus its only actually 1023 rather than 2023. And of course there are numerous questions about the validity and accuracy of certain 'dating' processes, namely are some artefacts as old as they claim them to be? There are some definite 'doom-mongers' out there, and some that are making money for themselves out of this. Those who are willing to 'prep', well that's your choice, and I respect your determination to try and survive whatever happens. Some people have claimed to predict there will be another 'global cataclysm' between 2040 and 2050. If that's the case, then I'll be knocking on 70 by then. I won't be looking to survive at that point, hopefully whatever happens wipes me out cleanly without any pain or suffering. But I will have been sure to have enjoyed my life as best as I can up until that point.
  3. I'm far more concerned about the levels of "illegal immigration" to be honest. UK migration curbs see salary threshold hiked to £38,700 for foreign workers from: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-67612106 At least (most of) these people come here to work and make a meaningful contribution to our economy. Yvette Cooper is right, but as of yet I haven't seen any such 'plan' from Labour on how they would tackle this when they come into power. (it's kind of inevitable really) The shortage of staff is a failure of our government going back years, in failing to encourage young people to train for such future roles. Instead of embarking on silly and useless university degrees. Anyway, what us ordinary people would like to know is what are the Government planning to do about the unacceptable levels of illegal immigration?
  4. Every year, for a few weeks at a time, my local Reach rag the Birmingham Mail puts out a number of 'horror stories' about popular Pontins holiday camps. Yes, one easily gets the impression there is either some vendetta against Pontins, or there really is a concerted effort to put people off from staying there.
  5. I have no idea what you're on about. Have a look through these:
  6. Very curious indeed, also interesting to see Dr David Kelly mentioned there. The allegation is that the 'broker' Bredenkamp stole the nuclear weapons and sold 'at least one' to North Korea. I'm willing to bet that the other two never ended up in Iraq to be 'found' by the UN weapons inspectors looking for Saddam's WMDs. What are the odds that they ended up in Israel? After all, Israel supposedly 'doesn't have any' so nobody would dare bother to look or even ask. Yes, that is correct. Cameron was no longer an MP, and only members of the Houses can take up ministerial positions, therefore the only way that Cameron could become Foreign Secretary was to give him a peerage and a seat in the Lords. I can't answer the question of "why Cameron" but I can guarantee you that these puppets are all placed in position for a purpose, and with a role to play.
  7. That's a UN website, so it's going to 'favour' pushing the climate change narrative. 'Climate change' does not cause volcanic eruptions. I am of the belief that volcanic activity and earthquakes are very much influenced by solar activity. If anything, it is the opposite way around - massive volcano eruptions can cause climate change. When huge amounts of dust and ash get thrown into the atmosphere, the particulates act in the same way as clouds, blocking sunlight from reaching the surface.
  8. What thing on October 7th? Going back to my original post, yes it's not beyond the realms of possibility that I was given 'duff information', well in fact clearly I was. It would appear that any general election is likely to happen in October next year, so only a year out. But the way things are panning out at the moment, with Labour now in complete disarray and their voter base divided over the whole Gaza 'crisis', it wouldn't surprise me if the Conservatives sought to 'take advantage' of the situation.
  9. And to think Labour thought they had the next General Election in the bag... Labour frontbenchers quit to back Gaza ceasefire motion https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-67432393 Also appears that Jess Phillips has resigned from her position too. I suppose in her defence she does have a large Muslim voter base in Yardley, so it can be argued that she is at least representing her constituents. But it would appear that the Labour party is doomed; fractured and divided, the 'top' of the party is pro-Israel Zionists, while its core voter base is now pro-Palestine Muslims.
  10. Suella Braverman 'sacked' from her role and replaced in the cabinet by... David Cameron! David Cameron vows to support Rishi Sunak after surprise cabinet comeback from: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-67407974 "Accepted a peerage" is probably how these Zionists work. Our country will be free once we can rid ourselves of its politicians who put their loyalty to the Israeli people ahead of the British people.
  11. "I'd have gotten away with it if it wasn't for you meddling kids!"
  12. Exactly, that's what I've been saying all along, it's all "divide and conquer", but it's not just about 'Palestine' but the Zionist 'agenda' as a whole. These Zionists also control the 'opposition', which is why you get the likes of Britain First and Tommy Robinson's mob now worked up about Remembrance Day marches, or turning up at these Free Palestine protests waving their St George and Union flags. There is a load of divisive shit-stirring going on, even politically. Labour were on course to win next year's General Election, but suddenly it seemed like they were going to lose a lot of their core Muslim voter base, due to Starmer being another Zionist puppet. The media reaction to Braverman's comments is designed to get people 'thinking' that Labour is the solution, because 'Tories bad'. But that itself is another huge distraction from the fact that the Labour party is close to imploding from within, due to the conflict between the pro-Palestine core Muslim voter base, and the pro-Israel Zionist party 'top-brass'. There will of course be a number of Remembrance Day parades taking place in many towns and cities across the UK on Sunday, and most will pass peacefully and respectfully, as they do every year. But it can be guaranteed that any such event in London will end up making headlines for all the wrong reasons. Don't fall into their trap!
  13. From "Brazil" to Birmingham... a Common Purpose 'wet dream'... Commissioner's warning to Brummies- 'brace for three hard years and fewer local services' (my emphasis in bold) from: https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/commissioners-warning-brummies-brace-three-28063021 So it would seem the 'solution' to getting to grips with the city's financial mess is to have a reduced workforce and budget, while at the same time employ more managers and admin staff to 'manage' the changes needed! "Too many chiefs, not enough indians" is an old phrase that springs to mind, if I've got it correct of course! Birmingham residents are faced with the prospect of a large council tax bill next year, and a reduction in council services. It could be argued that the council should be reducing the amount of middle-management managers and executives it employs on huge salaries, rather than bringing more in. This is what Common Purpose have done with the NHS though. The NHS would have plenty of money to employ and pay 'actual' medical staff - you know, like the doctors, nurses, surgeons etc who actually treat and deal with the 'sick' people - if it hadn't metastasised into a huge "Brazil"-like bureaucratic behemoth, where there are far more non-medical staff than medical staff, with layer upon layer of administration and management, yet the whole system is so woefully inefficient and disjointed. The NHS cries every year that it needs 'more money' but when the Government bend over and provide more funding, where does this extra money actually go? Into creating more bogus middleman administration and management positions. More layers of bureaucracy. No wonder the waiting lists keep on growing and growing. Going back to Birmingham City Council, the irony is that it spent a small fortune on (badly) implementing a sophisticated database system provided by Oracle, which should have streamlined and made more efficient a number of business processes and administration tasks. But instead they are now having to employ more admin and managers? It is the NHS mess all over again.
  14. There's been a huge fuss made over this story, and in all honesty I would say that she's right. But of course the mainstream establishment media don't like it when people step out of line and start speaking the truth. Anyone who remembers how the police acted at some anti-lockdown protests, in comparison to their treatment of the rent-a-mob Just Stop Oil and Xtinction Rebellion (just to name a couple of examples) will know that Braverman is right.
  15. It's almost like this is all being orchestrated to whip up the maximum amount of hatred and division!
  16. So I guess that makes our Government 'extremists' then by that very definition? Because for decades both Labour and Conservatives have been doing their very best to undermine this country, its institutions, and its 'values'. I see the word "values" bandied about so much by big 'woke' corporations that its become another one of these meaningless 'buzz words' (see also 'vibrant' and 'diverse') It's all just a smokescreen for what they really want to achieve - a giant 'hive mind' where everyone thinks the same, and anyone who dares say otherwise is a 'heretic'.
  17. They're not specifically mentioning it, but I'm sure that they 'want you to believe' that this is due to 'climate change'. Dramatic footage shows overflowing canal flooding nearby street in Wolverhampton from: https://www.expressandstar.com/news/local-hubs/wolverhampton/2023/11/03/dramatic-footage-shows-overflowing-canal-flooding-nearby-street-in-wolverhampton/ Canal systems in the UK are actually very cleverly designed and it is extremely rare for one to overflow like this, even after very heavy rain (which incidentally we didn't really have here in the West Midlands). As has been pointed out in the comments on that article, the likely cause of this is a faulty or damaged lock further upstream, or a blocked culvert which would normally allow excess water to flow down to a lower level.
  18. It's also a consequence of 'paving everything over'. Removing lawns and grassed areas and replacing them with paving or tarmac just means that there is less surface for water to drain through naturally and more surface water runs off into drainage channels that can't cope. Then of course if councils aren't going around and clearing drain covers that are blocked by leaf fall, it's not hard to work out what happens next! Same amount of rainfall every year yet flooding gets worse.
  19. Yesterday morning here in Birmingham, it was quite calm and pleasant. Wasn't until the afternoon that the temperature dropped noticeably and the wind picked up, then we had a bit of rain. Then it calmed down again by the late evening. Looked at a copy of The Metro on the bus this morning with its headline "THE WRATH OF CIARAN". No doubt some parts of the country were worse affected, but not here in the West Midlands.
  20. Selling a product, or a message. At work the other day we had a visit from some representatives from TikTok who were trying to get us to sign up and sell on TikTok Shop. It was quite eye-opening and I really got an understanding of the purpose of TikTok now. Sellers are encouraged to 'reach out' to TikTok users, in particular those 'content creators' who will produce videos that advertise your products for sale, then those 'creators' earn a share of your sales. Logically the more followers a content creator has, then the better chance of your product selling in volume. The same thing already happens on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. I've also seen ads and 'sponsored posts' encouraging businesses to advertise on Reddit and Pinterest. As I said already, all these big social media networks have now morphed into advertising platforms.
  21. I am still of the belief that COVID-19 was just the flu rebranded, and the PCR/LFT tests were meaningless. However, I still do not 'buy' this alternative narrative of a 'biological weapon being released from a Wuhan lab', as I think this is also some kind of a deflection. I don't doubt that there are labs all across the world working on such types of biological weapons for nefarious purposes. What I found wholly remarkable was just how fast this 'new coronavirus' spread around the world, and I think the whole idea of 'Chinese people going back home after celebrating New Year' was just a convenient smokescreen. COVID spread as fast as the Chinese factories were churning out these PCR and LFT test kits. It was also convenient that lockdowns and mask-wearing mandates were introduced shortly after the Chinese factories started churning out millions of those useless disposable surgical masks.
