1984.

leave a comment »

Just came across this video. It’s George Orwell’s 1984 written by Eric Arthur Blair (real-name) in late 1940’s. It paints a bleak picture of a post nuclear conflict world divided into 3 power blocks, all of which are equally repressive of the citizenry. Way back then in 1984, Orwell was denounced as a “false prophet”  and his book as nonsense. Take a look at it now and see if his ever watchful “big brother” (the bbc (in this instance )    is big brother) is as far-fetched as it them seemed.

Noticed these things “popping up” for a while, links to all sorts but of late they seem to be putting out stuff. Scurrilous stuff indeed, heard this type of material many years ago guess I know where it is coming from now.  Also noticed a reaction to some of the video’s, they didn’t go down well with a certain quarter despite the fact that they been up for years. Its the long and the short of it . I find it amusing that stuff on this blog seems to get such a reaction. I am beginning to think the stats are way off.

Cowen announces State visit of Queen Elizabeth II.

leave a comment »

Our Taoiseach Brian Cowen has announced that he expects the Queen of England to visit the republic before the end of the next year (2011). Speaking at 10 Downing Street on his first meeting with British prime minster David Cameron he can see no obstacle to the Royal visit this despite a long bloody history between the two countries. The British Monarch is know to want to visit for some time, both the English Queen and her husband are well in their 80’s and would feel that time is running out for a visit. Certainly Brian Cowen feels that a visit should go ahead but whether we all agree is a different matter. Has Ireland’s history put to right ? What about Northern Ireland ? Has that been resolved ? The every knows a-lot of currency was involved in the peace process. Surely the claim to be a “Republican” party should be dropped at least .
