Part of the apoplexy or perhaps the reason it is an apoplectic reaction to things which are plain wrong is when you’ve seen the best, when you’ve experienced treatment which has been ultra-professional – that’s when anything less is utterly unacceptable any more.
When we look at the Westminster circus, the snide nastiness of excluding Farage from the Cenotaph, the whole horrible theatre of it all, along with the moral bankruptcy of feminism as exemplified in PIE Harman, you’d be forgiven for thinking we are the negative ones here.
I’ve spent much time overseas and have seen the bad but have also seen the best in women – I’ve been immersed in them and have been in awe, so I’m obviously going to be scathing about the c*** I see masquerading as women over here, whilst at the same time, the very best women are also here but no one gets to see them – that’s because they’re busy elsewhere.
Same goes for how organizations are run. The state of British business is dire [see Chuckles for a longer exposition on that]. You only need see the egregiously expensive Common Purpose outlook on what makes a good employee and one despairs. Parachutees abound, the organizations simply cannot get it together so often, without fumbling and bumbling, without nastiness coming into it, it’s one of the most litigious societies in the world and promise is soon dashed.
One makes comments like these – uncompromising comments – because one has seen the best at work. Take Geelong FC downunder who today have suffered a kick to the guts when their football operations manager – many say well-nigh irreplaceable – has been poached by one of the enemy with an offer too good to refuse for his family and him.
There has been an appointment and it’s a club stalwart at all levels who’s been groomed to step in but sometimes a person really is near irreplaceable.
The outgoing man is one of the key reasons the club is one of the healthiest environments in that game and why players, when given the opportunity, have opted to go there – from development to club prospects, it’s not a bad place to be. A huge amount of that has been with the off field operations, building relationships, developing young leadership, nurturing, demanding standards and so on.
You see these things, you see the sane attitude towards immigration, broadening this a bit, you see the way to work ethnicities into your dominant native culture and either they embrace it or ship out – these are the sound foundations I like and enjoy being in. I want us, not to be like Australia because we are different here, with different challenges but to be professional, to stop all the litigious c*** and taking offence, to start looking after the borders and demanding anyone coming into this country either embraces it or departs.
Tails do not wag dogs.
And to stop the politics of greed, from Westminster to the football league, where people are paid decently but not the outrageous salaries, where the administration is trimmed to only essential personnel and it is no gravy train, where there is a sense of common purpose [you’ll note Common Purpose hijacked this concept and bastardized it].
I’m sure there are people reading this who know exactly what the post is driving at – for goodness sake, let’s extract the digit, nationally. Get some pride back in whom we are. No one is saying Farage is the Messiah, he’s more like John the Baptist and even he lays no such claim to the former. But this political thrust is currently the only one in our arena with any traction.
Just look at the utterances of Miliband and his circus, May and her circus over the weekend. UKIP have also been open to criticism for lack of professionalism but they are making strides in that direction – they’re the only show in town just now. They wish things to be reformed, got to work again and it seems to me there are a great many people out there of a similar view at this time that they want someone, anyone, to stand up and do the right things we all know should be done.
