British Values, Meerkats And The Missionary Position

All we hear from the mouths of unionist politicians and the media is “British Values” , their thinking is that with repetitive preaching the Scots will be won over and become zealous supporters, essentially convert to Union jack waving Moonies!
Sorry to say that is not going to happen. Why?
Well “British Values” always seems to be attached to great achievements such as the liberation of France and the low countries but the thing is, Britain was not the only country to take part in these great acts of humanity. There people from all over the commonwealth who really had better experience of these so called values. Historically the British Empire had a tradition of finding a country that had exploitable resources and a generally poor military strength. They would turn up plant a flag and claim the land in the name of the King. Then they would set about enslaving the population to work for companies that took the land away from the people, meanwhile a bureaucracy would be established to provide some waft of legitimacy. The people could always try to make protestations but bureaucracy would crush any peaceful attempts to improve the natives lives. While any positive actions were the trigger for violent retribution and cold blooded murder. Just to add a final insult to the indigenous people the misery was topped off by an Anglican Minister telling them that they should only shag if the man was on top! Those poor guys were toiling in plantations under a tropical sun and the only way they could get their end away was if they had to do all the work at night too! No wonder they eventually told Britain to take their values and bugger off back home! Only by that time hundreds of millions had perished! The basic point is that these people all stood again evil and that cannot be claimed as a British Value, that is decency and humanity and can be found across the globe!
So, what are these modern day “British Values” that the One Nation Tories are preaching about, Fairness, Equality, Compassion? What? Because I don’t know! It certainly can’t be any of those mentioned, is it fair that the Government choose to punish the poor, or sell off the countries assets to friends in the City? Is it fair where the level of poverty that you are born in to, or even how much you have had to eat will determine how well you perform within the education system? Is it equality where your sex or skin colour can decide how far you can progress in your job? Is it a compassionate nation that throws thousands of people off disability benefits and makes them fight to get them back, sometimes killing themselves in the process? I am not saying that within the benefit system there are not people who take advantage, but these people should be targeted.  Would a compassionate country turn away people fleeing conflict, one that is so bad that they would risk death from any number of causes as staying would inflict torture, rape and mutilation on them and their loved ones? Even if we gave our fair share of them homes until the situation is resolved. After all our “British Values” have complicity in creating the misery that these people are suffering right now. The Iraq War being a major contributer.
Do they honestly think that we will eventually succumb to the indoctrination and upon mentioning “British Values” we will stand up like a clan of Meerkats and salute the Butchers Apron? Unless the UK Government are prepared to set out a written constitution that protects us from them and hold their corporate cronies accountable for everything from tax to ‘isms in the workplace it will never happen.
We have not even touched on their willingness to remove our access to Human Rights or the ability to read our e-mails, or the fact that you can be arrested for demonstrating against the government, or you cannot protect your home and family from fracking. Ultimately if they deem your views to be against the interest of the British State they will want to stop you from communicating online, unless given the OK by a Police Officer! I don’t really hold with any of their values and I’m pretty sure that most sane people won’t either or pretty soon we will be living in an Orwellian nightmare.
