“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 !!!

” Cooler ” … A Poem written & performed by Big Virge

So guys what a hot few weeks it’s been eh ?

Wildfires, heatwaves, the world cup, and a variety of hot topics continually arising, that should be causing, at least the odd raised eyebrow, in terms of what is being revealed, or NOT, as the case may be.

So, this month’s little ditty will cover a few things, from last years Grenfell Fire, and the reaction to it, to the continual revelations of Hollywood abuses, and the reactions to them, that continue to heat up, as more and more female stars release information that will have a lot of producers and big movers, loosening their collars, due to the heat of allegations surfacing, and, resurfacing, from the past. Kathleen Turner being the latest to have certain people, looking over their shoulders, right about now.

As per usual, the Donald Trump show continues to simmer, until he gets his nose out of joint, over say, Lebron James, or NFL Players continuing to kneel, or, refusing to stand for the American Anthem before games. The issues of trade, and of course, his rather high profile meetings of recent, which should apparently, be cooling down tempers and the need for nuclear arms.

The Catholic Church, seemingly, abusing children just about everywhere they’ve been, with quite the level of protection, from members of their church to police not taking matters seriously, upon notification of child abuses, that have also been kept under the radar at some schools for decades, coming to light.

It’s definitely been a hot summer, but, not just due to the weather.

Even Tiger Woods has found his golf clubs hotting up, as he gets very close to returning to the major winners circle, at the PGA in St Louis.

The Zimbabwe election situation has caused tempers to hot up due to disputes over the legality of President Emmerson Mnangagwas’ election win. South African land appropriation, and a number of other issues in the African Continent.

The Ben Stokes case is hotting up, as did his temper clearly, as the story seems to keep changing regarding his position in the argument that led to him, as he claims, protecting a couple of gay guys from facing abuse …..

Hmmmm, something doesn’t quite add up about that whole scenario, much like the issue of race, as another white nationalist rally is heading to Washington, whilst racist graffiti has been sprayed on a house in Rochdale, where a black family were excited about moving in, so, that debate is still hot for those who aren’t part of the fraternity of famous black folks, who are now not so keen to raise the issue because of the green in their pockets, that has them feeling comfortable.

Well, as this poem suggests, we all could do with a cooling down, or maybe an exhibition of more coolness, when some of these issues confront us.

It’s been a hot summer for sure, but, unlike rain, some of these other hot issues may require some other cures.

Anyway, take a listen and enjoy, and stay cool folks !!!

Bless Up
