A Chip to save Lives

With so many road accidents and deaths occurring due to drivers using their mobile phone, I believe many lives can be saved by the compulsory fitting and installation of a computerised 'Vehicle chip' onto (or close to) the steering wheel.

Then with a simple Sim card update, every mobile phone could be made inoperable while in close proximity to these Vehicle chips; Rendering it impossible for the driver of the vehicle to use their mobile phone while the vehicle is switched on and or in motion, unless it is connected directly into a separate 'hands free unit'.

In very small cars the radius of  the vehicle chip's 'silent zone' (inoperable area) may mean that a passenger in the adjacent front seat may also need to use a 'hands free unit' to be able to receive or make calls; but that is perhaps a small inconvenience when considering the numbers hurt in RTA's on account of an unexpected or innocent phone call.

Please drive carefully and refrain from using a mobile phone when your hands should be holding the steering wheel. Thank you.

Democratic Freedom beckons Being in Partnership

I can imagine some of the UK youth of today entering their adult working life, realising that Society may be riddled with too much pressure, harbouring stresses and strains of indebtedness pitted against their levels in confidence; and even that very thought may instill further anxieties, when viewed against a back drop of Zero hour contracts, below minimum wage levels, regionally high unemployment, discrimination, and or even potential losses in the freedom of speech due to peer pressure.

"I did not ask to be born and look (even via the Internet) at what the future holds for me! I feel lost, in a very crazy world, alone, searching for and in Hope of a happy tomorrow."

The hope to afford the essentials in life, sustenance, home comforts, security and friendship.
Hope too, that if they find a job, a career they really enjoy, then perhaps they can then help others find their way as well; For even when born into a wealthy loving family, sooner or later, every individual has to find their true identity, and their own path within the myriad of a Global Society.

Accordingly, to quell such in anxious negativity, that for some may encourage a reliance upon antidepressant substances and or lead to outbreaks of disrespectful behaviour; For a Democratically Governed Society to remain cohesive and sustainable, it needs to be all about, 'being in partnership with each and every single individual'. Wholly enabled and willing to provide positive hope, in measures tailored to meet every individual's need, taking into account their particular journey in growth, circumstance, ability and inability.

Perhaps ideally, a fully costed, economically viable, freely open Governance, that is soundly financed and built upon wholesome partnerships in Private and Public sector investment, offering an attainable vision and a reality, steeped in centre ground policies  that enable uninterrupted sustainable growth and the full engagement of all.

Effectively, creating a society that instills inspiration and aspiration to achieve, with attainment fostering the further participation in looking after the Environment and the evolution of our species. A system providing all with a relevant Minimum Living Wage, Affordable Housing, Respect, Dignity and Care, along with the good prospect of a comfortable Retirement; A Being in Partnership with a future.

In reality, such partnerships (bridging over three plus generations) can only be built upon mutual trust honouring everyone's lifetime and mental welfare.  A trust that is seen as proven to be deliverable to fulfil the mutually shared promise by providing opportunities in harvesting some fruits periodically along the way.  A system of opportunity, structured to periods in time, offering support when circumstances change for the worse, and or periods of clarity when debts may be considered settled in full and not left outstanding in a state of animated limbo open to future variables or abuse.

Partnerships containing inbuilt responsibilities for all, that are collectively of mutual benefit to the health and wealth of all and the generations to come.

Partnership with Electorate

With the rise in political extremes  the Centre ground Parties seeking Government office should perhaps consider 'being in partnership with their electorate.

Exiting Brexit & Quantitative Easing

While I still hope Brexit is shelved, I also hope that the EU reforms, and hopefully adopts a better overall monetary and fiscal policy, moving away from the austerity based Debt Relief Loan schemes to more Direct Investment funding, that immediately generate new jobs in the areas of high unemployment; Which will in turn, address the current imbalances across Europe, strengthening the Euro and EU bloc as a whole.

I think it is right that the UK within the EU retains its Sterling (GBP) and the Bank of England's role. Just as I think it is right (and more economically viable) for the role of the European Central Banks to allow, and facilitate fluctuations tailored to and within each EU member State (by their individual Governments) and even regionally across the current Euro-zone itself.

Whereby, Regional measures in Harmonious Quantitative Easing may stimulate growth in specific Regions, revitalizing their economies from within, as each Regional GDP improves (via falls in unemployment and increasing tax surpluses to honour EU contributions and any debt repayment).

In my thinking austerity is dead. While stimulating growth in Regional and Local Economies from within themselves is vital, as it bolsters Community spirit and self sufficiency in a positive way; Where peoples and individuals can again flourish, without being reliant upon handouts, unaffordable loans, the need to migrate, or God forbid, turning to crime in order to physically survive.

Harmonious Quantitative Easing, The introduction or injection of Cash and Investment bonds into a Regional / State Economy within certain Agreed Limits, to avoid any major adverse effect upon other International Trade Agreements, Exchange Mechanisms and the overall Global Market.

Red Bus or Bust ?

The gambling irony of Brexit

The UK taxpayers will likely fund the whole of the costs incurred by the EU 27 Member States handling the divorce processes while at the same time, funding the reconstruction within Whitehall, the costs in renegotiating and establishing any new trade agreements, along with the financing of all the changes and procedures in regard to border control & security, the necessary adjustments addressing the likely deficits pertaining to economic stability born through current EU subsidies, and any additional protection charges upon the Maintenance costs of established EU Pension rights and obligation.

From a business perspective, all this appears to be additional overheads in burden, over and above the austerity measures that are currently in place towards balancing the books.

An additional burden in deficit the next generations will have to bear as the UK endeavors to prevent any further slide toward economic stagnation and crisis (that may arise through the global marketplace beyond UK control) before any potential advantages that may or may not exist kick in.

What ever happens that Red campaign Brexit bus may take a while to arrive.

Good Will or Raspberries ?

Regardless of any thoughts upon being able to afford a product. In any trading process, at the point of sale, there is always an open willingness, a Good Will to buy; and more importantly; Today's customers tend to purchase with an informed minds-eye that tunes into the product's origin, carbon footprint and content.

Bearing that in mind, from a 'final customer' viewpoint, it appears that both the UK's Brexit, and the USA's withdrawal from the Paris Accord, foolishly undermine their potential Exports and future standing in the Global marketplace.

After all, would you buy from a shop where the staff blew raspberries in your face?

Exploring new designs that express the true desire for Democracy & Freedom

Perhaps the last two are my favorites; As they incorporate a flame, honouring the lives of all those who have died to enable and preserve the precious reality of Liberty.
