I Don’t Believe

I Don’t Believe

I don’t believe in humans –

                A crazed bunch of chimps

Creating war and poverty

                In a world of spivs and pimps.

I don’t believe in magic.

                I don’t believe in God.

I don’t believe in reality.

                Everything is odd!

I don’t think there’s a purpose

                Any revelation to find.

But living in infinity

                Really blows the mind.

I don’t believe in Angels,

                Heaven or Paradise,

Even though believing

                Would be very nice.

I do believe in nature

                Evolution and mutation.

I don’t believe in religions

                Or the theory of creation.

I think all us humans

                Are as gullible as hell.

If we dumped superstition

                We could do very well.

I do believe pollution

                Is poisoning the Earth.

I believe in overpopulation –

                Far too many births.      

I don’t believe in politics

                It’s all a crazy game.

I think they’re all lying

                It’s such a dirty shame.

I don’t believe in fascism

                Or dictatorial control.

I think Trump’s a conman

                Digging us a big hole.

I don’t in communism –

                Creating another elite.

I do think that Putin

                Is heading for defeat.

I don’t believe in Tories

                With their fabled trickle down –

A bunch of millionaires

                Who own half the town.

I don’t believe in history

                Or anything that’s gone.

They falsify the story.

                As bad as QAnon.

I believe the crazy apes

                Are busy creating war;

Chopping down the forests;

                Stealing from the poor.

Paradoxically the apes

                Make great music and art

Appreciate great beauty –

                Matters of the heart.    

They are capable of care

                Love and compassion;

Of empathy and justice,

                Feelings and passion.

I don’t believe in cool

                Or the art of being hip.

Just another fashion

                Complete with a quip.

I do believe the mad monkeys

                Will turn everything to profit,

While always saying one thing

                Then doing the opposite.

I do believe society

                Is hanging by a thread.

A lack of belief

                Could leave us all stone dead!

Opher – 16.10.2022

A mutation created a mad bunch of crazed chimpanzees.

We’re all obsessed with a greed for more.

We’ve created poems, Gods and war.

Power is more important than fairness.

All our religions and political systems have been perverted to create power systems, elites and dominance.

There’s more than enough to go around but the ones at the top are never satisfied.

They’ll wage war (using us) and destroy the planet just to have more than they can possibly need in a million lifetimes.

Human beings are insane! We value slave owners, robber barons and murderers over artists, poets and dancers.

The Goebbels method – Tory Fantasyland. All the Big Calls!!

Makes me sick when I hear our pompous, arrogant clown saying that he ‘Got All The Big Calls Right!’

I don’t think he got a single call right!!

First came Brexit

Johnson changed his mind and rushed through a terrible deal just so he could become PM.

He ran a campaign that lied from beginning to end.

There is no Brexit dividend.

It is costing us a fortune – £130 billion (more than we paid to the EU in 40 years) so far plus a hit of 4% of DGP. – which is why we have not had the recovery of other countries.

It has caused many firms to go bust or move abroad.

It is strangling us in red tape.

We now have costly, time-consuming border checks, tariffs and queues.

The fantasyland wonderful foreign trade deals never happened and won’t happen.

We lost our freedom to move, work and study.

What did we get back? Higher costs, shortages, food rotting in fields, job shortages and the replacement of EU workers with workers from Africa and India.

Who has suffered? Farmers, fishermen, carers, NHS, haulage, catering, and the general public (prices shot up).

Who has benefitted? Wealthy Tories like Rees-Mogg who moved their companies abroad and made millions.

Then we have Ireland and the break-up of the UK.

If Covid hadn’t come along people might have been quicker to recognise Brexit as the disaster it is!!

The cost of duplicating services, providing border checks, lorry parks, civil servants, border inspectors and the like is enormous. For what?? (IMO – racism and arrogance).

That was a series of calls that were ALL wrong.

Then Came Covid

First, they ignored the Cygnet report that said they were unprepared for an imminent pandemic.

Then they ignored the pandemic taking off in China for four months (living in a blind Brexit euphoria).

Then, when they realised that Italy and Spain were being swamped, they panicked and dumped elderly patients out of the NHS into Care Homes – killing thousands.

They spent millions on Nightingale hospitals that were never used.

They spent billions on apps and T&T that never worked

They had an illegal VIP fast-track to give billions to Tories to produce PPE and ventilators – that did not work. (Including Hancock’s landlord).

They shut down too late.

They opened up too early.

They brought in silly schemes – like Eat Out To Help Out – that set it off again.

They were bailed out by the drug companies developing the vaccines (for which the Tories falsely claimed credit!!!)

The Ukraine War

They hid up the Brexit disaster with Covid and hid up Covid with Ukraine!

Johnson went off on his photo shoots and supplied arms.

Johnson – saviour of Western Democracy?? I don’t think so! How to make a profit out of war!!

The Cost of Power

The cost of electricity and gas has shot through the roof.

What has the Tory government done?? Fuck all!!

Have they rushed in a series of grants to insulate houses? NO!!

Have they nationalised the gas and electricity?? NO!! (France did – their energy supply went up 5% – ours 50% and another 50% to come)

Have they ploughed more into green energy – tidal barriers, solar and wind – with grants for the public??? NO!! They are still dithering.

The Global Warming Catastrophe

40 degrees is just the start. Forest fires, floods, droughts, extreme temperatures, extreme weather.

Johnson went to COP 26 and then copped out!!

Now they are talking fracking, oil exploration and even coal!!

Are they NUTS????

Petrol Price rise

The cost of petrol affects everything. The price of goods goes through the roof. Travel is expensive.

What have the Tories done?? They’ve enjoyed the extra revenue from tax on fuel!!

So where are all these big calls that Johnson and his Tory minions got right????

What we have is the Goebbels method!! Lie repeatedly and gullible people begin to believe you! That’s what Trump does!!

Mark Twain – on who runs the world!

I think there’s a mixture of the two. They have things in common – they are selfish, greedy, self-centred, lacking in empathy, devoid of compassion, smug, entitled, feel superior, with over-inflated egos, a cruel streak, uncaring attitude and they don’t give a shit about other people or the future of the planet.

These fools are running the world for their own ludicrous aims.

£9.2 Billion wasted on PPE!!! And fools still think these lazy, greedy, self-serving liars have done a good job!! Some people are nuts!!!

Tories – feeding their chums with billions of our money!!!

The Government wasted over £9.9 billion on PPE, which is more than it would cost to give every nurse in the NHS a 100 per cent bonus on their salary. The figure comes from the Department of Health’s Annual Report, which reveals it spent: £673 million on PPE “not suitable for any use” £2,581 million on PPE “not suitable for use in the NHS” £4.7 billion paying inflated pandemic prices for PPE we didn’t need to buy £750 million buying PPE which will pass its expiry date before we can use it. It has also “written down” the value of £1.231 billion in PPE, which is still yet to be delivered.

The Department also reports that some of the PPE will need to be recycled and it’s now contracting “waste providers”. Some of it is too complex to be recycled and so will need to be burned.

Thanks to an FOI response, Good Law Project can also reveal that, between April 2020 and August 2021, the Government spent £677.6 million storing excess PPE. And it continues to spend £500,000 a day on this.

Civil servants complained at the time that the need to service VIPs, the majority introduced by Government Ministers, was interfering with good procurement. It is unlikely we will ever know the true cost of this taxpayer-funded feeding frenzy for the friends and associates of Ministers.

Boris Johnson – £250,000 a year second salary described as ‘chicken feed’. Robbing £20 a week off the poorest.

These people live in a different world. With salaries in the hundreds of thousands they can’t imagine what it is like to try to feed kids on benefit, to choose between heat and food.

They have no empathy.

They put out a simple message – all those on benefit are scroungers. They need to get off their backsides and find a job. It’s a lie.

They use the few scroungers as an excuse.

But benefit scroungers cost us a fraction of the amount lost through tax evasion. The wealthy are pouring billions offshore tax free without a murmur.

I’d much rather put up with a few scroungers bucking the system to ensure that the really needy get enough.

The government of gross inequality and unfairness. Levelling up??? Ha Ha!!!

Johnson’s second salary would provide that uplift for 12,500 desperate families!
