“Don’t Get Carried Away !” … A Poem written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks,

All the best for the coming 12 month cycle !

It certainly looks like it could be a rough one, especially with, what increasing looks like a Hard Brexit, or, a NO Deal Brexit, coming the worlds way !

I think the Japanese PM, Shinzo Abe, has hit the nail on the head this week, when saying that the either, or scenarios, are not good looks for the rest of us !

Crazy price hikes, to varying degrees, if trade embargoes become a bigger issue than they already look like becoming !

Also, if the free movement of people is stifled, due to ridiculous attitudes towards sovereignty, and, border controls, then what happens ????

Well, apart from the obvious rise in nationalism, and right wing thinking, how does that translate into how services are run, and how the general governance of the country shifts, because it would clearly have to …..

It seems pretty clear now, that whatever governance comes, it’s gonna get testy, and cause further problems, when government policy could have resolved this a long time ago, by being stricter with regard to immigration laws, and I don’t mean the Windrush’ type of thinking and basically, racist policies !

I mean the employment of a system that meant that the actual Government Policy on it, made it clear, and more importantly, unable for THEM to make these laws, in order for THEM to benefit from cheap labour, that works well for their own purposes, ministers who want cleaners, nannies, gardeners, etcetera ….. Who would essentially be their, ” Modern Slaves ” !

Meanwhile, placing increased stress on those whose livelihoods, subsequently become pressured, due to the sheer volume of people trying to, not only, sneak into the country, but to then, also get work, which in turn, creates angst and the type of attitudes that lead to the result of the referendum on staying in Europe in the first place !!!

It’s such a mess, that it’s become, as some politicians are now saying, a national embarrassment !!!

Meantime, MP’s across parties are shouting about Theresa Mays’ lack of good judgement, and an inability to recognise that she cannot deliver what the people want, as if the rest of them could … when a 52/48 split was the result ???

Can’t please all the people, ALL The Time right ???

… which leads me to my first piece of the year, because it’s pretty clear to anyone looking on now, that the British Political System is BROKEN, and that, much like America, it now finds itself being scrutinised, and criticised, rather too frequently now, by it’s voters, because they neither have faith in the leadership, or the opposition, as per the impasse and shutdown of Americas’ Government over, ” THE WALL “, and No i’m NOT talking about the Pink Floyd Tune !!!!

So, whilst Theresa takes liks’ from basically, ALL SIDES currently !!!

Jeremy Corbyn is making, NO CONFIDENCE calls, and all sorts, to apparently get a general election ASAP !

However, one has to wonder if he did gain power, how that would play out in a world where Britains’, apparently, ONLY … ” Special Relationship “, is with America !!!

So, how’d y’all think Mr. Corbyn and The Trumpster’ would get along eh, and what THAT would mean for both economies and national relations …. ???

I don’t think it would be pretty, so, I wrote this piece a while ago, after local election results had people all stoked about what Jeremy could bring to the political table of fables in the United Kingdom …..

… and I have to say that a lot of people got, CARRIED AWAY, when perhaps they should of been more prudent ….

So, this month’s reflection of the current, Political Debacle that is currently running Britain, is simply called ….

DON’T Get Carried Away … !!!!!

and Those are SERIOUS Words relating to the SERIOUS Times that I believe 2K19 will provide …..

Take time and use your minds folks, because this Brexit’ thing really ISN’T a joke, and the effects of whatever happens will most definitely have effects across the globe !!!

” What Does It REALLY, Mean To You … ?!? ” Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, what does one write about in this world currently eh people ???

Well of course, the political realm has an abundance of disturbing movements, that have quite a few people getting, well …..

…. as irate as people get these days, in some online petition, or in some public display of disrespect, for those who are supposedly, representing their best interests.

Not so much huh folks …..

Donald continues to wage war with himself presumably, which then funnels it’s way down to his minions, and they in turn are turning against the very man who, when they were being paid by and kept in his fold, didn’t seem to have a negative word to say about their President …..

Hmmm, let me move on …………

So of course, here in Bim’, people are awaiting the election that many seem to hope, will remove Good old Freundel, for what, sorry, who … ???

…. who knows …. ???

…. but the corruption discussion never seems to be too far away from Bajan Lips, which leads me those, sinking ships ….

or boats, like The Windrush ….

Uh Hmmm …. Excuse me ….

EMPIRE Windrush’ … !!!!!

…. whose occupants on that famed day of June 22nd, 1948, seem to have been treated as, hmmm, how does the saying go, ” less than being human “, by the Home Office, under Theresa May’s guidance !!!

Now this evening, I heard some interesting rhetoric, via The Beeb’, that showed how mistakes were made, even in the accusations being levelled.

Ol’ JC …. Mr. Corbyn, for those who don’t know, attacked The Prime Minister for being involved in the decision to basically discard the papers of those who needed them, to verify their legitimacy of becoming a fully fledged, British Citizen !!!!

SHOCK HORROR !!!!

The British treating black people like the dirt of the shoes, that they’ve been wearing, as they tread through shit ….. !!!!!

Never …. ???

” No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs “, signs ….

…. being just one of the things these same migrants, (plus a few stowaways) from the Caribbean, had to face, upon arriving in the, let’s not forget, ” Motherland “, that was to show appreciation for Caribbean Peoples’ loyalty to Her Majesty, etcetera etcetera …

Blah Blah Blah ….

So now people are getting on poor ol’ Theresas’, Bruk’ Down back, give the woman a break, because the apparent truth is that the decision to do this heinous thing, was actually taken under the Labour Government that preceded the Tories …. ???

Huh .. rewind … !!!!!

The Labour, Leftist, Socialist, equality for all, supporters, would sanction such an act ???

NEVER …. !?!

Could this possibly mean that an actual change of national leadership ….

DOESN’T … actually represent change …. ?!?

I hate to say it, but didn’t Donald say something similar in regards to Hilary getting into power …..

One thing people have to admit is that President Trump, has certainly done things differently, even to The Bushes, who lost one of theirs this month.

Well, we live, we die, it is what it is, but I was thinking she deserves some thanks for giving us Jeb and GW, I mean hey, at least she didn’t give us Donald eh ???

It’s just madness, plain and simple, but at the end of this, there are people who have lost jobs, people who are being denied health care in their old age, people being separated from their families, the threat of deportation for others, which has of course, resulted in an apology coming from the beleaguered PM, to Caribbean Leaders.

One of whom being, Jamaica PM, Andrew Holness, who basically, immediately accepted her apology on behalf of Jamaica, saying that he believes, ” The Right Thing is being done at this time ! “.

The less said about that response, the better for me I guess, but it’s all good again, now the mistake … I Repeat …. MISTAKE ….. has been acknowledged, and will be rectified.

I mean, how do you do that though, really ???

Well, i’ll leave you to ponder that …..

Finally, leading to the piece attached to this post, Cuba has finally removed the Castro name from it’s offices of power, well, pushed it to the side, whilst new leader, Miguel Diaz Canel takes charge.

So, what does this mean for Cuba, and in particular it’s US Relations, well, it’s clear that the tight strings that were in place, have already been loosened somewhat by Raul, his predecessor.

However, President Trump is hardly likely to build on what B.O. O’Boomer, started, but who knows ?

He seems very changeable currently, from North Korea to Russia, but the Russia / Syria madness, has brought the old Trumpster’, out to play, along with Theresa May, The French, and anyone else who cares to wage war on Mr. Putin, President Assad, and chemical warfare that has been killing volumes in Syria ….

So ….

Who gave the initial order to use these weapons ?

Are there even, chemical weapons in Syria ? (Humour Me …)

Did The Syrians engineer them ?

Did Russia ?

Should anyone else interfere … ???
… and therein lies the BIG QUESTION ???

This seems to be a civil war, and a revolt against Assad, who seems have to earned the ire of The Brits, which in turn, leads to Trump etcetera etcetera, you get where it’s going ….

Well if you don’t, don’t worry, I think most people who, at least have, a sense of the woes of the world, have just about had their fill of it, and are just focussing on their lives and their loved ones.

Fair enough ….

However, turning a blind eye to these things is unwise in my opinion, because, small as they may be for most, revolutions of all kinds are occurring, just look at Starbucks and Applebies, for ridiculous examples …..

Hardly the type of revolution, that I think the world needs, but hey, it’s a start, so as I finish this post, i’ll leave with this question, as you click play and take a listen ….. think on this ……

In a world so CLEARLY, Corrupted and filled with injustices …..
If you had to start one …..

What Does It REALLY, mean to you ?
