My views on 2012, the end of the Mayan Calendar, Ascension and the End of The World are well known. It's all crap. Or is it?
Todays newspaper article (here) seems to link 2012 to something more tangible - the sunspot cycle. Can it be true?
The problem with End Times theories is laid out in detail in my book A New Day, but suffice to say there have been many near misses. I have a book called 'Judgement of Jupiter' on my shelves which predicts doom , gloom and disaster in the year 1982. I remember very well the Harmonic Convergence in 1987 and 2000 that came to nothing, plus of course the Millenium Bug.
The old world has already ended. It happened on Sept 11th 2001. Nothing has been the same since. I still doubt whether 2012 will deliver much to write home about.

Once upon a time, if you wanted to make a difference then you joined the Labour Party. They were the progressive ones, the forward looking, the fresh, the young, the revolutionaries, and the compassionate.
In as much as that was ever true, events of recent days highlight how useless the Labour Party now is.
But the news has wider ramifications, which reach into the world of holism and healing.
What was the leading Mind Body Spirit publishers Hay House thinking when they signed Labour spin doctor Derek Draper up for his new book Life Support?
Was the Mind Body Spirit Festival in London equally deluded when they agreed to promote him as one of their speakers?
Or did they all just lose sight of what it means to be progressive, revolutionary and compassionate in 2009?
The Labour Party is rotting away before our very eyes because people no longer want to be lumped together as an ‘underprivileged class’ or ‘disadvantaged group’. This approach never works because everyone has a talent. It’s just a question of finding what it is, and then encouraging its development and expression, and this is something which many long years of Labour Government has failed to do.
Potential Labour supporters have access to the internet, the most powerful tool for communication and education the world has ever seen, and all the Labour Government wants to do is regulate it and censor it.
The Labour Party is staring into the oblivion of history. The good it once did belongs in that same history, and the country will be all the better for it.
If you want to make a difference, the Modern Labour Party is no place for you.
If you want to make a difference you just need to be yourself, free from dogma and belief.

Our dear leader Gordon Brown is under pressure for hiring a adviser who was warned about the mess the banks were getting into, but ignored it. Allegations denied on all sides of course, but here comes the prediction. It wasn't Browns advisers that were warned, it was him. Gordon Brown Prime Minister of the UK knew where it was heading. He was warned and ignored it. How can I evidence this? I can't, just wait and see.
My suspicions were first aroused when Northern Rock went down last year. The whole 'people queuing in the streets' thing could have been avoided if the government had uttered these words 'we guarantee all UK bank deposits'. At the time i assumed they were just too stupid to do that, but in fact, they didn't dare do it, because they knew where it was all heading.
I hate conspiracy theories, they are mostly bullshit, but I have never been more certain of anything in my life. Brown was warned and ignored the warnings. You heard it here first.
Why does this matter? We are governed by a political class that is self serving, arrogant and incompetent. The Tories, Limp Dems, BNP, UKIP and Greens are no better, because the system itself is broken. The truth needs to be exposed and we need to change the system and those that run it. Human capital needs to come first, and when it does we will have paradise on Earth.

Already some of the media are asking the question - why does Britain grind to a standstill at the first sign of snow?
To answer that first ask people why they get up in the morning.
The most common answer will be 'because i have to, to pay the bills, to feed the family, all so I can do the same again tomorrow'. And there's the problem. The man that orders the grit isn't really interested, he just does what he has to do. Same for the councillor that decides the amount of money to be spent on grit, same for the driver of the spreader, same for the manager of the driver of the spreader. Same for the manufacturer of tyres and the builders of roads. They are not interested. They would rather be doing something else.
OK, there are exceptions, but they prove the rule.
Britain grinds to a halt in the snow because it can.

I'll say it, seeing as no-one else will.
The credit crunch and financial crisis is a good thing.
It's a long overdue and welcome dose of reality.
Tony Blair said on CNBC in January 2009 (can't find the video, sorry) that the events of the last few years had been a 'classic asset price bubble'. Shame he did not feel moved to do anything about it when he could. Sure, it's going to hurt, and I might well not be immune, but life does not revolve around who has the largest and latest flat screen TV, and neither should it.
So, I've been hunting for signs of life among the wreckage, and believe it or not there are two, just today!
The 'masters of the universe' at the Davos World Economic Forum got a slice of alternative thinking when they were asked to all sing Happy Birthday, not in the usual routine that the whole world knows, but exactly how they as individuals wished to sing it, all at the same time. Progress at last! The crisis will only be solved by individual bright ideas, against the trend and not conforming to the mainstream. Listen to the transformative shambles here.
Secondly, we all like a promise - even if we get let down, so here's a great one - Broadband in all UK homes by 2012. Doubtless the government will renege, backslide, pretend they never meant all homes, or try to reorder the calendar so 2012 never comes, but the announcement at least shows that they are beginning to see the positive impact that empowered people with information can have. They'll try to censor the content of course, but one thing at a time...
It'll be babies next...
i wish them a happy life in a sad world.
