That's it for a while...
I've had it, I really have. I really have given up on politics; the behaviour of the political classes - our rulers - has pushed this well educated, productive social liberal to the edge of the cliff.
The more I learn the less I feel it is worth spending one picosecond of my precious life in pontificating over the car crash of a society our bloody handed political elite are responsible for creating. I find the contemptible oppression and exploitation of British subjects and the infantilisation of our once great society abhorrent in so many ways.
Politicians; devolved, central and local are tearing the heart out of what little humanity remains in an already oppressive and totalitarian system - if you do not see the defenestration of British society, if you are oblivious to it - or even worse feel you support one political party over another then I now find myself jealous of you, for I cannot find that equilibrium you have. In the past I would have happily laid into your content sleep walking kind - my carefully crafted venom and best debating techniques would have been deployed against you in the hope that perhaps I could motivate you to open your eyes and see the coming tsunami of misery.
There are many other bloggers, considerably more erudite than I out there. They constitute the "new-media" and together represent the last slender strand of free speech and sanity in this broken country. I know my limitations, I can neither express myself as well nor indeed construct and deploy as convincing arguments as them. I am a humble engineer, who learned to write reports and deliver scientific analysis, and I struggle to corral the language to express myself to my satisfaction and convincingly on abstract concepts, politics or matters of civic society - indeed convey just how the frustration of watching it ALL fall down around me is tearing my heart from my chest. Before I spontaneously combust at the corruption, indifference, exploitation and contempt I see all round, and for the sake of my own health I am going to take a little break from blogging.
So I am off for a little while; whilst I can I want to dedicate some of my precious time to setting up a new business, hopefully help in providing some employment for those around me that I respect and who find themselves likewise unemployed - and just indulge my passions, for the great outdoors, music, family and friends.
I wish you all the best of luck; particularly my followers and inspirational fellow bloggers. Devils Kitchen, Tom Paine, Old Holborn, Guido, Penguin, the Nat Pack and all of the bloggers on my blogroll - thank you, it's been a blast, but I fear a pointless blast into an empty room of infinite indifference.
See you all in hell, there's a great party there I hear...
