Totalitarian British Regime Can't Feed Its Own People

state-controlled media in the isolated, nuclear-armed regime of hereditary ruler Elizabeth II was forced to admit today that its inefficient economic policies have resulted in nationwide shortages of chicken meat:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-43110910 posted:

Fast-food chain KFC has closed hundreds of outlets across the UK after they ran out of chicken



in stark contrast to official propaganda publicly displaying scenes of lavish plenty, even children living under the brutal regime were forced to go hungry in many cases:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-43110910 posted:

One KFC customer, Claire, told BBC Radio 5 live she was surprised when she went out with her children at the weekend.

"We went on Saturday night to our local KFC in Luton and queued for about 20 minutes in the drive-thru, about 15 cars in the queue, and when we got to the actual counter and asked for our standard family bucket, we were told there was no chicken," she said.

"The kids, who are nine-year-old twins, they wanted chicken and clearly it wasn't available, so we said there's nothing available that we wanted, and we then had the joy of queuing to get back out again."





periodic shortages of food are commonplace in the xenophobic state of North Europe Island (officially known as "United Kingdom"), which seeks to deliberately isolate itself against its geographical neighbours in order to pursue outdated systems of economics and agriculture.


such crises are even more frequent outside the capital, London, which the North Europe Island Regime carefully presents to the world as an emblem of its "strong and stable" political order. only last year, the occupied provincial region of Wales was starved of tea, deodorant, ice cream and "Marmite" - a yeast byproduct of other food production that locals must consume instead of ordinary condiments:

North Europe Island's crops frequently fail under the regime's chronic mismanagement and backwards agricultural policy. A severe shortage of fresh vegetable produce last year, due to crop failures that some suggest were deliberately orchestrated by the state, led to empty shelves, the rationing of food and a burgeoning black market:

Supermarkets rationing salad and vegetables has led to the emergence of a new "black market", as experts urge shoppers to buy more seasonal British produce.


http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/02/03/lettuce-black-market-emerges-amid-national-salad-shortage/ posted:

On Thursday Tesco and Morrisons launched a crackdown to prevent customers from buying more than three Spanish-grown iceberg lettuces at a time in a bid to preserve stock.




part of the reason behind the North Europe Island famines is its bellicose nationalistic foreign policy. based on a principle of economic self-reliance, the regime takes frequent steps to exclude non ethnically-British workers from the food production process, meaning that even the scant pickings of domestic agriculture often never make it to citizens, instead rotting where they grow:

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/feb/09/lack-of-migrant-workers-left-food-rotting-in-uk-fields-last-year-data-reveals posted:

Lack of migrant workers left food rotting in UK fields last year, data reveals


recent food shortages in North Europe Island are thought to have only seriously affected innocent civilians. members of the armed forces and police, celebrated above all other individuals in the militaristic hermit state, appear to have been given first priority over ordinary citizens and generally remain well-fed throughout the frequent crises:



Urgent Call for Solidarity and Support:
please use this thread to post any additional humanitarian information about the privations and shortages suffered under the backwards and inefficient "free market" economic system imposed by the Elizabethan regime, or by the despotic rulers of other rogue NATO states.

Hawking, from his last Reddit comment (lol):

If machines produce everything we need, the outcome will depend on how things are distributed. Everyone can enjoy a life of luxurious leisure if the machine-produced wealth is shared, or most people can end up miserably poor if the machine-owners successfully lobby against wealth redistribution.
So far, the trend seems to be toward the second option, with technology driving ever-increasing inequality.

the place where they do the politics on the island its cooll to hate resounded with the cries of the peoples representatives demanding a land war in asia because someone ate a poisoned pizza or something, havent really been paying attention but theresa may has assured the masses that she will be doing some serious hacking against russia to keep us all safe and also maybe bomb some syrian villages

The UK is blaming Russia for tge poisoning of a guy and his daughter. The guy in question worked with British intelligence. He also lived next to Porton Down, which has a chemical and bioloigical weapons research lab and a history of testing toxins on humans. They've been accused of killing someone with sarin. After his poisoning, they cleaned up the area to make sure no toxins were still about for people to come into contact with. Nobody knows what they do in that place.

the misanthropic idea that i get hung up on (wrongly, i admit) is that they're just really fucking stupid. i know there are all sorts of ideological avenues that western liberals are led down due to the obvious congruence of imperialist strategic objectives and their collective payday and that this mode of analysis tends to bear more fruit than just observing the obvious fact that these people are credulous armchair dumbshits who desperately want to believe they are the most objective and rational mind to ever grace The Discourse and thats why they alone are necessary to pierce the veil of Stalin 2's insidious internet propaganda campaign but: i just don't want to do it anymore.
#21

#22
I think that many of them self-censor because they subconciously recognize that there is an imaginary red line set for what they are allowed to believe or question. They'll glad yap about the evils of Reagan and Iran-Contra because thats no longer a consequential story to power, but the minute you suggest that the UN is an accessory to U.S imperialism in Syria, and the sarin reports are horseshit conducted with suspicious methods, you become an utter crank to them. Though this does extend to history as well, some propaganda becomes so ingrained in the public conscious that it creates paradigms that nobody can breach while remaining acceptable as polite company, as is the case with the USSR's legacy.

I like to read the articles that say "incontrovertible evidence both material and circumstantial" and then list it: "the toxin was one that was only made by the Soviet Union in the 70s" and .....

...

Russia. I mean it basically has Russia all over it. It's an ex-Russian spy, and, well, look they're coming to get us.

incontrovertible.

Does anyone have some cool articles to share about Porton Down, the highly secretive chemical and biological weapons facility of the totalitarian English monarchy's hermit island - where they experimented on live human subjects in a display of utter disregard for basic human rights and a willingness to pursue military dominance at any cost, even by gassing their own people

off/on topic depending on how you look at it, i thought this thread was recent and real because the grocery store down the street was weirdly out of a lot of things last week while i had the worst toothache of my life (and the dentists here are legally unable to prescribe painkillers so if you want real painkilling you have to find a clinic, argue with the receptionist for a while about the fact that yes they can prescribe painkillers for dental pain, and sit in the bread line at the clinic for four hours, speaking of bread lines. this country is amazing. at least it was free a bit less than $100 US. i am leaving this year, this is my promise to myself)

(actually though, you know what, medicine here is like 50 cents once you're allowed to have some, and that's one nice thing. maybe the only nice thing)

that's pretty depressing because uh, ain't too hot out here rn

while I was in Winnipeg I talked to a bunch of locals about the gutting of their health care system that's happening under their new provincial govt, it wasn't fantastic before but it is truly amazing how much they've managed to destroy so quickly. I've been used to the slow subtle strangling back in alberta, guess they had some catching up to do

The totalitarian British regime destroyed evidence of its having granted citizenship to colonial subjects during a period of labor shortages in the mid-20th century in a blatantly racist attempt to expel them decades after their arrival.

The Home Office destroyed thousands of landing card slips recording Windrush immigrants’ arrival dates in the UK, despite staff warnings that the move would make it harder to check the records of older Caribbean-born residents experiencing residency difficulties.

A former Home Office employee said the records, stored in the basement of a government tower block, were a vital resource for case workers when they were asked to find information about someone’s arrival date in the UK from the West Indies – usually when the individual was struggling to resolve immigration status problems.

Although the home secretary, Amber Rudd, has promised to make it easier for Windrush-generation residents to regularise their status, the destruction of the database is likely to make the process harder, even with the support of the new taskforce announced this week.

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/apr/17/home-office-destroyed-windrush-landing-cards-says-ex-staffer



They imposed the burden of providing 4 documents for a given number of years they had lived in the UK to prove the legality of their existence and livelihoods:

In 2009, Mr Green tried to update his passport with the proper visa information, but was told by the Home Office he had to prove he had lived in the UK for each of the previous 10 years.

His application was rejected twice. In March last year, Mr Green travelled to Jamaica to be with his dying mother, but when he tried to return to the UK in June, he was not allowed on the flight.

"I was upset - virtually in tears. I couldn't understand why," he said.

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-43794366



Failure to provide these has lead to the firing, eviction and deporting of an unknown number of citizens who have for decades upon decades lived as subjects of and payed taxes to the regime, which no longer sees the need to respect the rights of non-native peoples:

Winston Jones was admitted to hospital with a brain aneurysm in 2014, which he attributes to the stress he was under as he tried to sort out his passport problems.

The 62-year-old spent five months in hospital, where staff told the former British Rail worker that he might need to pay for his treatment, even though he had paid UK taxes for more than 40 years.

“They showed me a bill for the brain operation. I think it was £5,000,” he said.

Upon discharge, he had nowhere to go because he had lost his home as a result of official doubts about his right to be in the UK. Hospital staff had been unable to find him a bed in a homeless shelter; having been classed as an “illegal immigrant” he was ineligible for a bed in a state-funded hostel. Despite his precarious health and lack of accommodation, he was allowed to leave the hospital and began sleeping rough. He had no warm clothes and few belongings because when was he evicted all his things had been thrown away.

This has put entire families - including those who were not yet born when their parents or grandparents emigrated to the British kingdom - at risk of expulsion:

The daughter of a woman who arrived in the UK with the Windrush generation is facing imminent removal despite all of her family, including her dying mother, being based in Britain.

Jamaican national Yvonne Williams, 59, was detained in Yarl’s Wood last August and has been served notice that she could be deported at any point in the next 72 hours, after a number of submissions for right to remain and asylum claims were rejected by the Home Office.

Speaking to The Independent from the detention centre, Ms Williams said she feared being alone and “living on the streets” if she was sent back to Jamaica, where she has no family ties since the death of her grandmother in 2000.

This is the latest effort by the xenophobic nation's ongoing 'hostile environment' policy adopted to drive out non-native born persons from their borders.

the entire excuse for this ethnic cleansing is that, while anyone born in the empire in that time period was a citizen, only the ones who moved to Britain proper before 1973 kept that status. burn all the empire's landing cards & insist no other documentation is valid and you can pretend that they must've only snuck in last month

now if you're black and you were actually born on the british mainland, don't worry, you can just report to a home office deportation centre once a week for a few months while they procrastinate looking for your birth certificate, after which they'll not apologize. and when you next need to go to the hospital or register to vote you'll get to do it all over again

this has effectively stripped citizenship off of all black people. i really never thought i'd see this in my lifetime
