My new ideas for our World have never been acknowledged by any Government. Yet they are all new ideas they do not have.

Why do we believe in the government?

https://www.quora.com/profile/Desmond-Last

Because we want to believe that we can trust them, that our interests are shared with ours. We want to give them a respect and we want our lives to be better.

Wrong oh so wrong. They are a World apart from us. They live in Ivory Towers protected from the World and its reality.

They retire to fat pensions and guarded life-styles.

They are no longer accountable and they lie so often that they believe their own lies.

They never answer the Question.

Why do we believe in Government? Because we are too bloody busy working to pay for them to do anything other than hope that somebody else will start the revolution.

How unpopular is Theresa May?

https://www.quora.com/profile/Desmond-Last#

I do not think PM May is unpopular in that everybody knows PM May was given the most difficult Prime Minster-ship since WW2.

PM May’s policies may be disliked but as a person most I am sure would say PM May has the tenacity of Sir Winston Churchill and the bloody-mindedness of Baroness Thatcher.

I admire PM May for taking the job on and for attempting to steer through the muddy waters of Brexit without floundering on the various rocks of Johnson, Junkers and Rees-Mogg.

If they had worked with PM May instead of lurking in the shadows with daggers drawn to stab PM May in the back wherever possible then PM May might have have produced a better draft agreement.

I have no time for selfish politics and Rees-Mogg and Johnson play their egos as if they were a tune that PM May and the people of the UK have to dance to.

As for Junkers he cannot be trusted as all he wants is his name on the Federation of Europe nameplate and the U.K to be on its knees so others will not follow suit.

I am not a fan of PM May because PM May has studiously ignored all my ideas and writing for a better World – but PM May has a backbone and that is to be admired.

Many have fought and died for the World we enjoy today we should not so easily give it away.

This is a trend by default but it is becoming more common and it is incrementally spreading throughout the World. It is the Virus Apathy.

It is not a personal fault. We all wake-up everyday to go to work – or at least the majority of us do. There in an ever competitive World we go about our work as obedient robot drones. We do not know who we work for as we are only a digit on a Multinational Bank Transfer. We are taught to sing the Company song and made to feel grateful for the fact they have given us work.

If we dare to use our brains we are shot down and made to feel an inch tall. So as good little robots we work as hard as possible in case they replace us with free trade immigrants who will work even harder for less.

When we get home we are too worn out to man the barricades and begin the revolution so we switch off to whatever drama of the day our Government is supposedly dealing with and tell ourselves it will all be better one day.

However, in the meantime we have lost our jobs, taken a pay cut and payed even more for our mortgage or rent.

We pretend Climate Change is not going to burn out homes down even though we know it probably will and we ignore the approaching Tsunami. Instead we attend the local Armageddon Party where drug dealers are the new black and the Police Station is now a Mcdonalds. This is the Trend of ‘If I ignore it it will go away and not keep me up at night’.

Unfortunately whilst we have been busty staying alive and out of Prison our Governments have stuffed up our World and will continue to do so.

So I would like Apathy to disappear forever and be replaced by ‘Government who do and not just say will do’. Many have fought and died for the World we enjoy today we should not so easily give it away.

How much longer can Theresa May survive?

Brexit is too important to the future of the United Kingdom for any one person to ‘upset the apple cart’ with a leadership bid for Prime Minister. PM May has steered the U.K negotiations through some very troubled waters after Davis and Fox let down the people of the U.K by underestimating the resolve of the E.U to ensure that the E.U remains at 27 Member States and not less.

PM May will be left alone until the deal is done. Then in typical British Fashion after all the sleepless nights and long hours PM May has had to endure she will be knifed in the back and sacked.

That is unless PM May is able to chart the future of the UK with a clear and accountable Economic Strategy and not more ‘ Pounds in Peru’ Speeches and the like.

When in April the UK leaves the E.U it will be alone. A new Economic Union is in the best interests of the U.K. With whom? Well those outside of the E.U need leadership and direction if they are to combat the growing Junckers E.U State monolith. If P.M May is able to promote such a union then PM May will likely stay as PM May.

There is a danger that a second referendum may still be on the cards even after the U.K leaves the E.U which is why it is so important to chart the future.

PM May also has other challenges to her tenure as Prime Minister on the Horizon which may yet cause her to resign – the rising crime rate in the U.K needs to addressed – you cannot have two legal systems; one for those who are allowed to commit crime and one for those who are not – without inviting widespread Civil unrest.

Either way PM May will be in Number 10 for a little while longer.

Do you feel the self-driving car industry bubble would burst anytime soon in the next decade or so?

https://www.quora.com/profile/Desmond-Last#

Possibly. What is the natural development of the self-driving car? A train or other forms of connected transport.

I understand that self-driving transport will bring down labour costs and should improve road safety.

However, if we are all being driven around then we may as well use connected transport ie trains and the like.

I think it is a technical distraction more than a new direction. We also have to consider the security concerns – ie hacking. We are unable to safeguard our computer systems let alone those of self-drive cars.

Do you think Theresa May is a “Strong and stable” leader as she so often claims?

https://www.quora.com/profile/Desmond-Last

Stable yes but strong I am not so sure. PM May has completely underestimated the EU. There is no way the UK is going to get a good deal – because if the UK does then others may want the same.

May was too trusting of the EU. They have lead PM May down a blind alley. They were never going to do anything other than give it hard to the U.K.

Me I would put up the hard border to Ireland, stop all free movement, put 50 per cent tariffs on all German, Italian and French cars, do a deal with the U.S and tell the E.U that if they want hardball they can have it.

PM May has been far too trusting so ‘strong’ is not a description I would use. PM May has also allowed crime to soar out of control.

However, PM May has the best interests of the UK at heart as I have. I would rather have PM May then Corbyn. Nobody knows who Corbyn really is and for the Military that could be a problem.
