I was suffering form writer block during the last couple days; really terrible it is sometimes, the brain becomes a state of stall, like a malfunction in the flight of an aircraft in which there is a sudden loss of lift that results in a downward plunge - Blimey, and oh my god, sounds dramatic then.
However that intellectual famine and shortage has ended this very day, and as you know it’s fathers day, which if nothing else is just another commercial event imported from the other side of that great pound which thankfully divides - but I don’t mean to be unkind, and I am not really anti-American, but that country is responsible for much that is badness; and currently going on in and around the world today, proving subsequently, that big is not always beautiful!”
And today we received the very sad news that Comrade Brian Haw, the world famous peace campaigner has passed on by; famous for his peace camp opposite that monstrous mollymawk, the Houses of Parliament.
Brian, became such a landmark, as big and famous as Big Ben in the decade he stood his ground and made his valid point about war and the war mongering of leaders such as the likes of Tony Blair and others.
I spoke to him once, and found him a wee bit eccentric, and I say that in and with the most gracious and courteous of regards and respect, for what he really was is what maters - a man of great passion and love for peace, who put his principles and feelings into action for a world to know, that war is not the way of a civilised human race.
Karl Marx said, “it is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that that determines their consciousness.” Yet despite capitalism’s erosion and distortion of the basic social instincts in human beings, the fundamental desire to provide practical aid and compassion when it is sorely needed is still there. The system will never succeed altogether in eradicating the understanding we all share of being human and needing one another.
Many can corrupt and change people for the worst, but people like Brian Haw are the complete opposite and thank god for that.
So thank you Comrade Haw, now rest in perfect peace, your contribution will never have been in vain or forgotten!”
