With the launch of the faux election there is an information overload going on, most of it trivia, tittle tattle and gossip about politicians and whilst most ‘political’ commentary is not about politics it seems to thrive on this kind of crap. I find it totally distracting so I need to cut back, cull and refocus on what is important and what is not, as even the likes of Iain Dale rarely have anything of importance to say.
I have reluctantly decided to take a holiday from not only my usual environ, but also from blogging, PC’s, telephones and the daily rush of information that is overwhelming my thoughts. Google Alerts turned off, news aggregation silenced, or what passes for news.
As my wife continually tells me, its about pennies and pounds, concentrate on the detail and let the mass media play the propaganda games extolling the virtues of the 4 horsemen, if you remain focused on the small print, the detail and the facts, the bulk will take care of its self and the lies can be destroyed.
So, am going away for a week or so, switching everything off, escaping Britain’s problems by sea to refresh and re-invent the way in which I look at the mass of information coming in every day, to clear my head of the clutter and get my sleep patterns back to a normal working efficiency again.
I shall undertake this without the aid of government grants, taxpayers funds or paid for junkets. Its my mind, my body and my life, I deal with it all in my own way and I do my own risk assessments.
I will not be watching the sleep inducing Coronation St, now running a story line held back since it was supposed to have been aired at the same time Madeline McCann disappeared, merely another horseman tale by the mass media to keep the population scared and intimidated, reinforcing the message every night that there is a bogeyman behind every curtain for those gullible enough to believe it.
By the time I return to blog again I expect that an election will have been called so I look forward to cutting, slicing and dissecting the bullshit emanating from the big 3 parties. I am not feeling generous to any of them. Not only will I return refreshed but also a Free Man committed to working for a free and independent nation.
A week to 10 days without having to listen to the lies of Brown, Cameron & Clegg, the myriad of wannabes and hangers-on or even the now pathetic figure of Peter Hain, the thought is making me feel better already.
