PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?
Weather

It’s ALL According to the Weather – “forecast”- THE BBC v THE MET OFFICE- THE CLIMATE IS CHANGING ….

 Weather

THE BATTLE OF THE WHETHERMEN AND WHETHERWOMEN

WHO TELL YOU WHAT WEATHER YOU ARE GOING TO GET.

WHEN THEY ARE GUESSING AND CALL IT SCIENCE

TO GIVE YOU A PERFECT EXAMPLE GO TO THE WEATHER FORECAST FOR BOTH ON FRIDAY 29th JUNE.

THE BBC SAY HEAVY RAIN WITH THUNDER AND LIGHTNING

BUT THE MET OFFICE  SAY NO RAIN AND SUN MOST OF THE DAY

AND THAT IS THEIR FORECAST !

AND BECAUSE THE BRITISH WEATHER IS SO FICKLE ITS A GUESS !

AND DOES IT MATTER ?

DOES THEIR LIVELIHOOD DEPEND ON IT ?

NO !

SO HOW DO THOSE WHO DO, COPE ?

THE RADICAL HAD A 253 ACRE FARM ON THE SCOTTISH MAINLAND

HIS ATTITUDE TO THE WEATHER WAS :-

WHEN I CAN SEE ARRAN IT IS GOING TO RAIN AND WHEN I CAN’T IT IS RAINING

OF COURSE, THAT IS A JOKE BUT WITH 52 INCHES OF RAIN A YEAR – ONE INCH A WEEK ON AVERAGE

IT WAS NOT FAR OFF THE MARK.

SOME  FARMERS IN THE LAKE DISTRICT GET DOUBLE THAT AND NOT ONLY RAIN

STRONG WINDS SNOW AND CHANGEABLE SEASONS

MY FARM WAS ON THE WEST AND I LIVE ON THE EAST OF ENGLAND NOW.

THAT SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING

I TOLD YOU IT WAS ALL ACCORDING TO THE WEATHER BUT THE WEST GETS MORE RAIN THAN THE EAST

BUT PARTS OF THE NORTH EAST GET LESS THAN THE EAST MIDLANDS

AND ITS VICE VERSA ON THE WEST – THE NORTH WEST USUALLY GETS MORE THAN THE SOUTH WEST.

BUT THAT HAS NOT BEEN TRUE IN RECENT YEARS WITH FLOODING IN THE SOUTH WEST

SO THE WEATHER IS CHANGING BUT THE BBC AND MET OFFICE ARE NOT CHANGING WITH THE TIMES>

WE NEED A BRITISH WEATHER CHANNEL TO COVER LOCAL AREAS OF BRITAIN AND IRELAND

FOR CLIMATE CHANGE CONDITIONS

AND HOW DO FARMERS & GROWERS COPE 

HORN AND CORN 

BY THAT WE MEAN GRASS VEG FRUIT AND CEREALS 

UP CORN DOWN HORN AND VICE VERSA

NOT PUTTING ALL YOUR EGGS IN ONE BASKET

BUT IT IS NOT AS SIMPLE AS THAT

WE ALL FARM IN THE MOST INHOSPITABLE PLACES 

ON GOOD AND POOR LAND

URBAN SPRAWL AND ABOVE THE TREELINE

IN THE FAR NORTH AND FAR SOUTH

CONDITIONS CAN BE DECEPTIVE

CORNWALL HAS HEAVY POOR SOIL AND THE EAST OF SCOTLAND SOME GRADE 1 & 2 LAND

BUT SCOTLAND HAS ONLY 2% OF GOOD LAND AND 98% OF GRASSLAND OR WORSE

SO WE HAVE MOVEMENT OF WEATHER AND FARMING TYPES.

CATTLE MOVE SOUTH WHILE STRAW MOVES NORTH BOTH IN HUGE QUANTITIES EACH YEAR

AND WHILE THE POOR FARMER STAYS PUT.

AND WHY AM I TELLING YOU ALL THIS ?

FOR TWO SIMPLE REASONS

BRITAIN BADLY NEEDS A BRITISH AGRICULTURAL POLICY

WHICH 48% OF VOTERS IGNORANT OF BREXIT DISMISSED

THAT IS NOT TO SAY WE WILL GET ONE 

DOES BRITAIN EVER HAVE A  PLAN LET ALONE A 5 OR 10 YEAR PLAN ?

AND SECONDLY, MOST  FOODS DOES NOT COME FROM SUPERMARKETS.

MOST FOODS COMES FROM FARMS 

SO IF WE ARE NOT TO GO HUNGRY WE HAD BETTER NOT DEPEND ON FOREIGN FARMS

WHICH IS WHY I AM ADVOCATING A MARKET SOCIALIST ECONOMY ,

STATE CONTROL OF THE LAND BUT PROPERTY AND PRODUCE RELIANT ON THE MARKET

WE NEED MORE FAMILY FARMS AND SMALLHOLDINGS, MORE TENANTS AS WELL AS OWNERS

WE NEED LESS ESTATES AND MORE INTENSIVE UNITS – 

LIKE THE  PIGS & POULTRY WE HAVE NOW< THE GLASSHOUSES AND CEREAL GROWERS

EVEN GARDENERS AND ALLOTMENTS ALL PRODUCING FOOD 

BUT OF COURSE, WE NEED TO FARM OUR SEAS TOO

AND FOR THAT WE NEED A TV AND RADIO WEATHER STATION

WITH FAR MORE REPORTING STATIONS TO SAY WHICH WAY THE WIND IS BLOWING

YOU CAN DO THAT ?

VOTE FOR CHANGE 

REFORM OF PARLIAMENT

THE TWO PARTY SYSTEM IS DEAD IN THE WATER

SO LIVE ABOVE 50ft ABOVE SEA LEVEL

AND KEEP YOUR HEAD ABOVE THE WATER
