No!, to UK's 'The No Party'


'No Party's' Facebook logo

The No! Party's statement: We are sick and tired of reading or hearing about the fresh mistakes that this "government" of ours is making and imposing on it's people. It's time something was done. Now, in times gone by, if you didn't like your leaders, you just rounded up a posse and marched on the capital, dragging out the decadent oppressing rulers and doing something violent.

However, this is a more civilised age ...and so the weapons with which to conduct such a campaign are words, reason, information and action.

We believe that this political system in this country is broken. What the UK needs is a fresh start. A new beginning. A new party, it's members untainted by the failures of the past.

We intend to form a new political party called "The NO Party" and contest the next Election on a massive scale. But We can't do it alone and without support, we will only embarrass ourselves.

So, if you agree with our idea and want to know more, "Like" this message. Then encourage others to do so. We need a headcount of how many are willing to aid. Then the fight can begin.

Rebecca: Its about time the people of the uk got their rights back and stood for what they believe in. We spend too long arguing amongst ourselves when we should be uniting against a corrupt government!

Hi Rebecca,

We cannot solely build a unity on the basis of our opposition to a wicked government, but on the basis of the virtue of our beliefs regardless of said wicked government. 

Fixation on unity against an evil usually serves as the backdoor via which other evils are slipped into our itinerary by 'No Parties' or otherwise - such as the No Party's support for the death penalty.  We just end up trading one form of selfish self-interest for another. 

In yelling out a resounding and unified NO!, we need to also pay mind to what we are saying YES! to.  Our empathetic and collective conscience has to serve as the vanguard of any party.  It is not a more palatable hell that i seek.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

The following is a consideration of the perspective posted at the site, 'article14'. The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

Well, V (singaporean chinese girl working in the UK....and now back for the holidays) kept bugging the crap out of me to write about this experience....so here goes.

I arrived in singapore on the 15th of Jan in the evening via SQ with V.  I got to the baggage retrieval belt first and quite immediately got the attention of the customs police standing at the checkpoint near the entrance to the arrival hall.  Well, never mind.
