Opinion -Vladimir Putin and the madness of humanitarian imperialism – English pravda.ru – John Gelmini

Dr Alf makes interesting points and his belief in democracy is commendable.

However, the world is not run by people who are as idealistic or as passionate about people as he clearly is.

Pravda RU selectively quotes from history because Czarist Russia and its successor has hardly been a model of studied indifference in the world, having created revolutions all over Africa and Central America and the ice storms and harsh winters of the 1970s with their weather warfare capabilities. They are right about the Bilderbergers, who last year in my own county of Hertfordshire met at the Grove Hotel near Watford on the 6th, 7th , 8th and 9th of July and decided as they have done every year since 1954 what the policy on peace and war was going to be; their approach to Eurasia (Russia and China); the “Arc of Crisis ” in the Middle East; and who is going to get elected in Europe and the USA.

The 1 million residents of Hertfordshire got the policing bill for this “private meeting” and despite representation from Hertfordshire County Council, the Chief Constable of Hertfordshire and the Police Commissioner for Hertfordshire, Prime Minister, David Cameron, who attended on the Friday of that week and George Osborne the Chancellor both insisted that the policing bill of £963,000 gbp($1.6 million USD) be paid by the people of Hertfordshire.

One of the things they ( the Bilderderbergers) decided was to create more “colour revolutions” in countries surrounding Russia and what is now happening is the result of that.

The shooting down of the Malaysian airline and the present sanctions might not have happened without the earlier situation becoming inflamed.

In my view, Mrs Merkel’s wise counsel needs to prevail – she has the political skills, stamina and experience to make a lasting difference.

Ageing Britain needs more immigration – Case Against – John Gelmini

Yesterday, I re-blogged a very interesting article in the Spectator newspaper arguing in favour of more immigration to redress the challenges of the UK’s ageing population.

Below is a comprehensive response from John Gelmini. Whilst, I do not agree with all of John’s suggestions, I respect his views and candid opinion:

Sadly no!

The country already has 61.5 million people in it plus 4.5 million illegal immigrants and about 250,000 new people coming here every year, plus more illegal immigrants on top of that brought in brought in by Triads and criminals from Albania and Turkey who make their money from people smuggling.

This occurs because too many of the indigenous population want to remain on the dole and in the black economy paying no taxes.

The issue is not being tackled because to do so would reveal just how many people were really out of work.

The issue first of all is a shortage of 9.9 million houses and not enough construction workers to build them or the mortgage finance to enable people to buy them even if they could be built.

The Government has been offered solutions on factory built housing from Ikea who can build a nice 4 bedroomed detached house out of wood for about £7000 gbp and by ICF Firms like the American firm Polysteel, who can build safely on floodplains, but chooses, as did the former Labour Government to do nothing.

The old, unproductive and essentially economically useless, people without money, their own houses or other assets represent a growing burden which has to be dealt with.

Essentially, they have to be kept by a diminishing number of taxpayers who on average per family of 4 have £97 gbp in monthly disposable income and the 80% of the population who have bank accounts who have less than £500 gbp in them at any one time.

The average stay in an old people’s home is 3 years, at a cost of £152000 gbp, hence Andrew Lansley‘s proposals for a death tax for those elderly people who do have property.

In my own county (Hertfordshire), SERCO are going to run a call centre for Adult Social Care applicants and have told the authority that they intend to weed out 50% of these people and either refer them to Charities or deny them Adult Social care. A further 20% to 30% will be “re-enabled” after 6 weeks of intensive therapy leaving 20% who qualify for Adult Social Care. These people will not be left alone but will be targeted periodically for re-enablement at 6 month intervals with progressively tougher assessments designed to pressure them off Adult Social Care.

Social workers under this regime are given strict targets for “re-enablement ” of Adult Social Care recipients and can be reprimanded or sacked if they fail to meet them. The process will trigger lawsuits and trouble but Hertfordshire County Council sees this as the way forward.

Also SERCO have failed to consider the impact of the new dementia patients coming on stream but  under the re-enablement regime nothing much short of an assassin’s bullet will be enough to stop the re-enablement process being forcibly applied or the recipient being denied benefit if they refuse to comply.

My suggestion of copying the Japanese and Germans and using ASIMO robots for feeding, cleaning, bathing, toileting etc, in homes is very mild. Similarly shipping them to India where they can be cared for at a fraction of the cost now makes a lot more sense than this very harsh regime.

Far from needing more people the country needs to reduce its population to 35 million through getting more people to migrate to Canada and Australia  via a new assisted passage MacMillan style selloff of surplus population, or after language training, some of the BRIC countries.
