Dr Alf is correct in that America, which owes China huge amounts of money, is already overstretched in too many parts of the world and is not really in a position to compel China to do anything unless it deploys weapons from its secret armory that it has in space(George W Bush’s death star weapon and other devices launched from Vandenburg ) and elsewhere which to date they have never acknowledged they have.

The current strategy of containment for China, developed by “YODA” the 91-year-old military strategist employed by the Pentagon, is called Air Sea Battle, and I predicted in blogs last year via Dr Alf that this strategy would be checkmated since it was known so well.

The Chinese as the “Donald” puts it so well are eating our lunch, first by undertaking most of the world’s manufacturing and thus much of the tax base upon which military power is built; secondly, by swarming out into countries we in the West choose to ignore and gaining access to raw materials; thirdly, by discovering how our top people think by sending their best and brightest to study at our universities and to observe the people they interacted with and report back what they learnt in special handwritten notebooks.

The building of artificial islands in the South China sea was and is a clever move because short of their destruction by a HAARP weather weapon are we really to believe that America would dare to attack them?

These constructs are what the Israelis like to call “facts on the ground” and the Chinese will go on creating more of them and watching to see what the West’s reaction could possibly be.

The Nicaraguan canal has already broken ground since last December and that too will take traffic and money away from America.

Europe is divided against itself; the UK has a Tri-Forces not much bigger than the Papal Guard, and Vladimir Putin is building robot tanks(Amata) and super-drones, whilst the Saudis and other Middle Eastern despots are funding ISIS and the expansion of a Global Caliphate which America does nothing
about because Obama chooses to constrain his military.

If I were in the position of the Chinese, I would look at Obama, Hollande and many of the Western leaders, in much the same way as Julius Caesar looked at his rivals when he was at his peak (“I judge the brains of a man by the brains of those he gathers around him”), and I would find them wanting–A group of “paper tigers” without vision, without purpose and without a real strategy.

Until that situation changes quite radically, the Chinese are right, no-one can tell them what to do.

Opinion – Obesity poised to overtake smoking as key cause of cancer – Telegraph – John Gelmini

Dr Alf is right, and unless obesity is tackled soon, much of the new Conservative Government’s program will be undone and the country will never get out of debt.

Why?

Currently, the NHS has a structural deficit of £30 billion gbp and the UK’s population is rising.

Secondly, we are 20th in the world for productivity which is why among other reasons employers in 80% of cases prefer to hire people from overseas to do the jobs that people here will not do,cannot do productively or are not educated enough to do.

Local authorities at county council, metropolitan borough, London borough, unitary authority and city council level have 50% of their entire budgets consumed by adult social care based on 25% of people of working or pensionable age in their areas.

More obesity, combined with 1.25 million woman over the age of 65 now presenting early stage dementia as a result of their pot-smoke filled and debauched lives in the 1960s are going to push the proportion of that budget figure to 60% or more.

The Government, quite rightly, is trying to force local authorities, police constabularies and fire commands to rationalize by putting them on a diet of less money but these bodies remain resistant to merger or reform and have said that they will as a result of cuts make services that people have come to expect,”disappear”.

Obesity has to be tackled along with these obdurate local authority neandertals and Chief Constables because otherwise the country will never be able to earn its way out of trouble and essential services will be cut.

THE POSSIBLE SOLUTION

1) Compel food manufacturers to reduce sugar and salt content in all processed foods by 75%
2) Reduce noise pollution in built up areas–New studies show that the body’s fight or flight system kicks in above a certain decibel level causing it to believe that there will be a food shortage and triggering the body to store fat as a reserve

3) Ban Bisphenol A
4) Use the zoning laws to reduce the number of fast food outlets and increase the number of healthy food outlets
5) Pedestrianize more towns and cities to reduce pollution and force people to walk
6) Introduce variable taxes on foods
7) Promote self gardening on allotments and in back gardens and grow bags –use likeable people like Monty Don to front a television advertising campaign
8) Introduce a Mediterranean diet in all schools put Jamie Oliver and celebrity chefs in charge of menu preparation and someone like a Pru Leith or Mary Berry in charge of delivery
9) Make GP’s prescribe Tai Chi,Pilates and gym memberships for their obese patients instead of drugs via set prescribing targets linked to each doctors licence to practice.

Strike off through the GMC doctors failing to meet these targets and sanction those who breach them at a low-level with clawback of money

10) Educate people to drink less alcohol and to stop drinking it on an empty stomach which then creates a desire for unhealthy food late at night which gets stored as fat
