What is justice?

In previous blogs (here & here ) I've questioned whether or not 'justice' is an impossible 'idyll'; something we aspire to achieve, like the victims of Grenfell Tower, the Hillsborough disaster or the premature deaths at Gosport War Memorial hospital, but can never hope to fulfill. It seems the are always so many conflicting interests that one man's perceived 'justice' is another's travesty.
Can the Davies Hypothesis explain this conundrum? I believe it can by looking at the nature of good and evil. Normally we consider good and evil to be a one dimension continuum, with 'good' at one extreme and 'evil' at the other. however, the Davies Hypothesis demonstrates a better understanding if we consider good and evil as a three dimensional problem as explained in an earlier blog.

It seems to me that law and order are man made institutions whilst 'justice' is that spiritual concept, totally necessary for the good order of mankind but always unperceived like the Tao. Justice can then be thought of as 'imaginary' goodness in the diagram.

Janet Daby

It was, I suppose, inevitable that Lewisham East was retained by the Labour Party albeit with a reduced majority in a low turnout by-election. Putting aside the mentality of an electorate that would support a Labour Party that would ruin the country there is another issue.
The new member of parliament is Janet Daby and yes you've guessed it, she's a first generation immigrant, her parents being part of the Windrush community.
I have written previously on this subject see:  here, and here

The way we're going a significant number of parliamentarians will be relative newcomers to the Country and I question the wisdom of this development..

Oxford Immigrants sex crimes

Another tranche of immigrants, originally from Pakistan, now of Oxford have been sentenced for up to an inadequate 15 years in prison for the sexual abuse of young girls. These loathesome men will be out in 7 years or so, free to go back to their communities showing no remorse whilst their victims bear a life sentence, suffering hateful memories and other mental traumas. This is not justice.It isn't even close.
Whilst they are in prison, these men will be afforded every luxury in case they play the race and Islamiphobia cards. They will be free to associate with others infecting all with there warped morality, spreading even more hatred for the indigenous anglo-saxons and their pernicious laws. And who pays for their upkeep in prison? The innocent taxpayer, of course. £300-£400 each per day should cover it and what about the families they leave behind. The mosque might throw some money their way but most will be met by totally innocent tax payers in the form of benefits. What justice is there for the innocent taxpayers? Has anyone given any thought that these men and their families should be deported and sod their human rights? They should have thought about that before they transgressed. If they were deported, it might concentrate a few minds and persuade other men to stop molesting young girls.
We must put the interests of the victims first, not the perpetrators.

Austria closes mosques

It is reported that Austria has closed some mosques and expelled imams, originally from Turkey, for holding extreme Islamic views. The president of Turkey, Erdogan has threatened action and predicted a war between those forces of the cross and those of the crescent. Strong words from the leader of a Nato country with a large army.
I believe that conflict of some sort is inevitable if leaders of the northern european countries fail to act on the worries of citizens concerned about the creeping Islamification of their neighbourhoods and towns. Muslims make no concessions to the culture and life of the indigenous population, insisting that only Islam is the truth and therefore undilutable. Across Europe, generous and hospitable people are becoming fed up with the Human Rights mob and their mantra that anything said about Muslims and their religion is racist, fascist xenophobia. The northern european people all have a limit to their forbearance and charity and clearly this point is nigh in Austria. Erdogan is quick to join the fray because he is a leader with ambition to restore the power of old Ottoman empire with himself as Sultan, if not Caliph.
Meanwhile, in the UK, citizens are arrested for trying to point out the religion of men being tried for the rape and abuse of young white girls, contrary to court orders. It is this, the denying of understandable freedom to express heartfelt views of the people by the UK's liberal elite that leads to frustration and conflict. Unless the UK leaders grasp the problem soon, all will be lost, something that the Austrians and others have recognised.

What justice!

A three year old toddler is run down by a van travelling at 35mph, driven by a man distracted by using his mobile telephone. The toddler is brain damaged for life, his parents condemned to a lifetime of caring for him whilst the driver gets a two year suspended prison sentence.
The parents claim this is not justice but what would justice look like?
The toddler has lost his 'normal' life, perhaps even a few years of his expectancy. This is beyond monetary price.
The parents have lost the joy of raising a normal child whilst being condemned to a lifetime of caring and mental anguish. Irreparable.
The driver has the consciousness of guilt which effect will diminish over the years. He will recover his license to drive. No hardship, no justice.
The taxpayer, despite having no involvement, will foot the bill for the childcare for life. If the offender had been jailed, the taxpayer would be obliged to pay another £300 per day for his keep and his benefits on release. No justice for the taxpayer.
So it seems that there is no justice for anybody except that eventually the guilty walk away unscathed. So! what is the answer; kill him? Like Sisyphus, make him work for life, giving all his earnings to the family? make him suffer a debilitating procedure like the loss of a leg, to remind him daily of his crime. Humiliate the driver by making him attend the stocks every weekend for 2 years, say, where he can be shamed in front of the community.
It seems that in this case, Justice is impossible. Only the legal profession, like overflying vultures, will survey the scene of devastation with any hope of extracting value. But justice it aint.

Mayor of Sheffield

Further to my blog of 30th April, Sheffield has just elected as Mayor, a man who moved to the UK from Somalia. He is yet another example of a newcomer to the Country who presumes to influence the political life of families who  have lived in the Country for hundreds of generations. Don't misunderstand me, Councillor Magid Magid might well be a very decent, capable man but it is the principle that's at stake here. Under my proposal, his grandchildren, well versed in British culture and values would be entitled to seek public office.
They might bring new perspectives to the job I hear the progressives cry. What they might bring are echoes of the life they left behind, a life of harsh brutality; an alien culture that offered no hope of a better future . They moved to the UK, invariably to find a better life, one crafted by generations of the very people they wish to usurp as leaders. It can't be right.

Bishop Curry's, 'God is love' sermon

Much has been made of the 'God is love' sermon preached by the evangelical preacher, Reverend Bishop Michael Curry, at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. What a load of bollocks that was and overlong in its delivery. God is no more responsible for love than he is of hate.
Why do I think that? Because 'love' can be found in many ways in the animal kingdom; it is not confined to God made mankind, infused with love to further God's work of filling the universe with children. I'm sure we've all witnessed the unconditional love of our pet dogs and seen pictures of the obvious affection held by families of apes. Love evolved because nature deemed it neccessary for the proper nurturing of children, both human and otherwise and because conventional science can't explain it, the good Bishop has kindly stepped in with his glad but erroneous tidings. No matter how passionately he spoke, it was nonsense and I suggest he would have been better advised to talk about the Davies Hypothesis which explains the love/hate condition, for the first time ever quantifying spiritual values.

I hope the good preacher doesn't now go home with his 'By appointment' sticker, drawing more fee paying acolytes  into his Church of wishful thinking although I fear he will be lured by the celebrity status his world-wide talk will attract. Call me a cynic but in this world of mammon, it strikes me that 'God is money' is a more realistic buzz phrase than 'God is love'.

Meghan & Harry

Conratulations to His Royal Highness, the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their marriage today.

This blog is proudly Royalist and today will present a good example of the unifying effect a good monarchy can have on a community regardless of its diversity. The obvious joy of the happy couple will be shared by huge numbers of subjects regardless of their politics, gender, age, sexual orientation and social status. I suggest it serves as a model for those countries suffering social and political upheaval, allowing the people to come together to celebrate what it means to be part of their particular community. The UK (and some other Countries) is lucky to have Queen Elizabeth as their sovereign, a woman who devoted her life in the service of her people, a shining example of how it should be done and what may yet be possible in Countries that once had a Monarchy such as Libya, Iran and Iraq.

A vision of dystopia

Andrew Gwynne, the Labour Party's campaign co-ordinator says that his party wants to give the message of hope to electors in the next General Election. What, therefore, can the voting public look forward to?
As we reflect on the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx's birth, I ask myself what a vote for Corbyn's Labour Party entails:

The politics of Marxist (Communist) Russia, with millions of innocent deaths.
The economics of Venezuela, with many innocent deaths.
The defence capability of Switzerland and withdrawal from Nato with potential for national disaster
The Rule of Law of the mob. (union flying pickets) leading to civil war.
The State headship of a republic, a President with dissolution of the Monarchy. (see above)
The foreign policy of appeasement and surrender, betraying British values to follow three white feather politics.
The religion of Islam with millions of innocent deaths.

In short, is this not a vision of Dystopia?

Immigrants in power

Well, it was only a matter of time. A perfectly good Secretary of state for the Home Office has been forced out to be replaced by a man whose parents arrived on these shores as immigrants from Pakistan. The former encumbent of the position was hounded out by the Shadow Home Secretary, herself the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica. This blog, whilst recognising that some immigration is beneficial holds the view that positions of political power in the UK should not be open to people whose family have not been fully resident in the UK for three generations or more, including the present. That proviso should also preclude the present Mayor of London standing and others such as the Milibands and Baroness Warsi.
How is it that these newly arrived recipients of UK hospitality see fit to run the Country and legislate for the families who have occupied these sceptred islands for thousands of years. Do they not have any idea how rude this appears, this presumption to come to the UK and tell the indigenous locals how to run their affairs paying particular attention to the welfare of those who have on arrival, contributed nothing to the culture and prosperity. Certainly, those who fought on our side in the war are deserving of special consideration but not to the extent where they influence debate on matters of national importance. The people of the UK have managed quite well without them for millennia; they ought to integrate for a few generations before they qualify in full.
