Great to see haughty arrogance and complacency fall flat on its face.
Awesome to see hope and optimism galvanise voting, particularly among the young. No more need for grudging acceptance and stoic cynicism – things can change!
BTW Labour got 40% of the votes. In the previous election in 2015 it achieved only 30%. You have to go back to 2001 for the last time it got 40% which was when Blair won his second term! In fact Blair won his third term with only 35%. So that puts into perspective Corbyn’s achievement. Credit where credit is due.
When you hold that ballet paper in your hand, stop and think, not about yourself, but about our kids.
We should all vote if we can, but it’s time to stop voting for our own selfish reasons and spurious loyalties, and instead to vote for the benefit of the country, it’s people and particularly, the young people. Because quite simply, our future is invested in them.
We’re all at each other’s throats and even Mother Earth’s under threat too. Only the Aliens can save us now, kinda. Do your worst ET. I beg you!
The last time we had a World War – that would be number II – we lost an estimated 80 million people, including around 50 million civilians, most of those on the ‘Good’ side. To put that into perspective the entire population of the country that I live in at the moment, the UAE, is less than 10 million.
I read a comment on Facebook somewhere recently: ‘they’re falling like flies’. And I flinched for a moment, because the flies being referred to, was us. But it’s not too late to save our species though.
On a wider scale, we’re seeing the erosion of real quality journalism with unfortunate consequences on real world events that will impact us all sooner or later. But I’ve written about all that elsewhere. Today I want to micro this down to automotive media, and further zero-in on our region.
I don’t know why we don’t say this often enough: Terrorism is forbidden in Islam.
It’s as simple as that. Muslims are not allowed to engage in terrorism. In fact this is as fundamental to the religion (and indeed any religion) as Fanaticism is spurious to the basic beliefs of Muslims.
I wish you all the blessings of this holiest of months, whether you fast or not. Here’s why, despite media perceptions, this should be a month of peace and love.
For those of us fasting – here we go again.
