Well, we do drive on the left, so why not follow that lane?

It has only recently occurred to me (yes, I’m dim) that for some 18 years there has just been a notion that being returned to political power is the be-all-and-end-all. The fact that the Liberals admitted it after GE2015 woke me up to that fact, and now the Labour leadership contestants (bar Corbyn) are stating “we won’t get back into power unless we take x number of Tory voters with us”.
As Michael Meacher, MP puts it (link here):
...the Blairites think their clinching argument is that if the Party moves away from their chosen course – or as the obsessive and delusional Blair himself has said: “a millimetre from my path” – Labour will lose. 
Only Corbyn has the integrity to say “we must base our values on those that the Labour Party has traditionally stood for”. How true: he must have read the book “Roots of Labour”.
It is not to do with "the Party going Left" but it is to do with applying commonsense and recognition of the needs of everyone, especially the hard-working and disabled who are worst off - as the SNP Party has demonstrated.
I can see a Labour Party split taking place, but maybe that is for the better. However, I just hope that Corbyn’s Party merges with the Green Party to work towards a sustainable, meaningful and fair economy - for that (with compassion and a deep regard for human values) is the future. The world is changing in a way that we never thought was possible even 10 years ago - and various conditions begin to remind me of Biblical prophesy - but the political right can't see it. And even if they did they would probably think that theirs is the only way.
So, while Jeremy Corbyn is maybe not the best potential leader for the Labour Party, at least he has the guts and the vision to remind us of matters that really do matter. And he is the best (in my opinion) of the bunch that are competing for the Labour leadership.

Disturbing Events ... But Are We Awake Enough To Care?

In February last we heard of the death of Dr. Rauni Kilde:

You may not have heard of her but she was a remarkable medical woman who went a long way to prove that there have been disturbing scientific and technological developments taking place in the world. She was also a profound spiritual philosopher. Her several videos can be see on Youtube and in my opinion are worth viewing.

I'm sure us English will also remember Dr David Kelly, who was found dead in most peculiar circumstances a few years ago and whose matter has been quiet.

And now a Cambridge professor claims that three scientists investigating melting Arctic ice may have been assassinated: See

No, this latest assertion is by no means proven, but how do three scientists working on the same project all die within a relatively short period ... and are not even elderly?

Yes, I'm all too aware that there is a chance of coincidence here and that I can be accused of panic-stirring, but these cases are not the only ones where big questions have been raised. What about the killings of JFK and Martin Luther King - do we really know what happened there? And I really do wonder about the unexpected deaths of two great thinkers and politicians in the English Labour movement - John Smith and Robin Cook - in the last 20+ years.* Their deaths (and the natural death of Tony Benn) have removed any great thinkers from the socialist movement, and so we are left with a Labour Party that is about to be led by a relatively intellectual pygmy.

And there are the relatively recent events concerning the Malaysian Airlines flights MH370 and MH17,  events that would appear to possess some very strange characteristics.

There are far more 'conspiracy' issues we could talk about than I've listed here, and they are well documented on the internet.

Perhaps we'll soon find out how to draw lines between the dots.

* I subsequently recalled Bob Crow, leader of the RMT union, who unexpectedly died in 2014. Though not a person I would follow, he galvanised his union and was a very strong leader. He knew his subject well.
