APOLOGIES
I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.

Common Purpose explained

On the cpexposed website, the following is taken from "Understanding Common Purpose" Follow this link to their extensive website.

Common Purpose is a political charity using Behavioral Modification

Common Purpose (CP) is a Charity, based in Great Britain, which creates ‘Future Leaders’ of society. CP selects individuals and ‘trains’ them to learn how society works, who 'pulls the levers of power' and how CP ‘graduates’ can use this knowledge to lead 'Outside Authority’.

Children, teenagers and adults have their prejudices removed. Graduates are ‘empowered’ to become ‘Leaders’ and work in ‘partnership’ with other CP graduates. CP claims to have trained some 30,000 adult graduates in UK and changed the lives of some 80,000 people, including schoolchildren and young people.

But evidence shows that Common Purpose is rather more than a Charity ‘empowering' people and communities’. In fact, CP is an elitest pro-EU political organisation helping to replace democracy in UK, and worldwide, with CP chosen ‘elite’ leaders.

 In truth, their hidden networks and political objectives are undermining and destroying our democratic society and are threatening ‘free will’ in adults, teenagers and children. Their work is funded by public money and big business, including international banks.

It is important for researchers on this site to realise that the majority of Common Purpose 'graduates' are victims, who have little if any understanding of the wider role of Common Purpose within UK society, nor of its connections to higher government and the European Union.

Drawn into CP training by a flattering invitation, or selected by their company or organisation, this recruitment is normally carried out by a previously trained CP person - now recruiting for the cause. Candidates are screened and selected (or rejected) by CP Advisory Board members in their area.

Both candidates and 'trained graduates' will have no real understanding of Common Purpose's wider role to help achieve a political and social paradigm shift in the UK. The real objective, would appear to be to replace our traditional UK democracy with the new regime of the EU superstate.

On 17 November 2013 Brian Gerrish wrote 

"Many people are now aware of the British political charity Common Purpose and its work to create a network of common purpose across politics, public and private sectors, and throughout society. Many people now understand the sinister role CP played in creating the furore to drive the Leveson Inquiry into the press, using their own Media Standards Trust and the Hacked Off Campaign. Their ultimate goal has been to assist the British State to take control of the Mainstream Press using a Royal Charter with the power to impose draconian penalties should the press fail to live up to State imposed guidelines.

We should remember that CP is a secretive and duplicitous organisation that has already been caught breaking the Data Protection laws by collecting data on individuals lawfully asking questions about CP by means of the Freedom of Information Act. CP is terrified of the public gaze and discovery of its real  work to undermine democracy and impose a quasi secret network of state control by means of a network of CP graduates in positions of power and influence. The plan is for a communitarian dictatorship and a conrolled press and media is essential to this.

Mr Gerrish went on to state:

We can be confident that the charity CP was designed to be the Trojan Horse in British Society with the primary objective of getting the first CP 'future leaders' into place, from where they could open many doors to many more of their own. But alongside infiltration by the political charity CP comes the wider socio political agenda of common purpose; an agenda which is being promoted by a host of different organisations and initiatives.

These include Diversity Courses, Community Empowerment, Leadership, Visioning, Community Activism, Social Entrepreneurs and Disupters - in fact there is now a vast web of these 'vehicles' which are primarily working to promote the change agenda to destabilise our historic organised society.

The turbulence of deliberately created change allows the new intended socio political agenda to be established more softly than if there was a sudden onslaught of the new politics in a quiet orderly and stable society. Alongside the common purpose 'vehicles' I have just mentioned comes another 'change agent' web using networks of Neuro Linguistic Programming NLP. Via a myriad of different consultancies boasting everything from self empowerment to powerful management change in global corporations, NLP practitioners are creating a mass of 'reframed individuals' with boosted belief in their own ability as change agents and leaders, and a low-empathy view of those simple individuals who are left to rely on the 'inferior' mind that God gave them.

Another article states:

Common Purpose infects all mainstream political parties including the Conservatives.

The diagram below shows the influence of Common Purpose to the top of the Conservative party with key figures such as David Cameron, Francis Maude and Chris Patten. The diagram also shows the incestuous CP links to Sir Bob Kerslake, Head of the Civil Service and the BBC. Francis Maude MP conspired with others to prevent the public seeing details of the contracts by which the Cabinet Office Leadership Committee, attended by Sir David Bell Common Purpose Trustee, awarded contracts to his own charity CP to train the Top 200 Civil Servants.


Despite legitimate Freedom of Information requests and Maude's boasts of Conservative transparency, the Cabinet Office is fighting to withhold the information. Why? Because details will clearly show insider dealing and that Common Purpose is key to the Conservative party machinery. The Tories are now the Emperor with no clothes. Corruption, abuse of Freedom of Information rules and dirty deals with Common Purpose hidden from the public.

We suggest that more people should investigae just how Common Purpose is an organisation dedicated to change the British way of life into something else. The something else will be up to you to work out. We have done our bit in starting you off here. Visit cpexposed.com and be prepared to be horrified if you are a normal, well-ajusted human being. If you aren't, you are probably part of Common Purpose.

How Firefox saves me hours of time

I used to use Chrome and, to be fair, liked it enormously. But I can't have an opening page as I do in Firefox.

There are many reasons to choose Firefox. Security, it is opensource so you can check the source code for any trap doors is one very good reason.

However, my main reason is you can devise your own starting page, unlike the others.

To make an opening page requires a limited knowledge of HTML code. This is not as daunting as it seems as you can use the WW3 web site at http://www.w3schools.com/ which has a huge range of tutorials on web programming--but you only need to use the first one on their list “Learn HTML”.

My opening page has over 60 links in three columns grouped under various headings with descriptions, which open in another page so it is always there on the left. Every time I fire up my browser, Firefox's home page shows me the sixty most used sites of mine so I can get to where I want with one click!

Over the last year it must have saved me hours of my time, not to mention the wear and tear of my fingers as I punch my hapless keyboard into smithereens.

A letter explains why Ampers' Rants has been quiet this month.

Dear Followers,

(and according to Google Analytics there have been nearly 600,000 since I started this blog.)

First of all, my apologies for being a little tardy this month but I have been busy altering my new website (built for me) for those interested in all the Brexit Good News, and all the Bad News, coming from our dishonest and crooked government.

There are also photographs of every MP in Theresa May's first cabinet, a list of people who tried to browbeat us to remain, and a list of relevant links, and our action page.

I will now return to Ampers' Rants with a slightly less garish look to it. But I do like colour although the new political website is neat, smart, minimalistic and in black and white.

Should any of you take a look, I'd appreciate it if you fill in the form on the Action page and let me know what you think of it.

Regards,

Ampers.

Streaming within comprehensives

One Answer could be to Streaming in  Comprehensives.

A Stream for Grammar status
B Stream for Comprehensive status
Ć Stream for remedial status
D Stream for Metalwork and woodwork.

My Afrikaans boarding school adopted this system and it was very effective, so before you tear it to pieces, it has been done before.

But I would take it further.


A bonus of £500 to be paid for every B Stream pupils qualifies to move up at the end of year exams, to the A Stream. And a £750 bonus for C Stream pupils who gravitate to the B Stream.

Some pupils just don't do well in their academic studies but remember, we used to be a nation of artisans, and people very able with their hands can earn far more than the average. And, before you scream "sexist" I have known a few excellent women Carpenters and plumbers...

The unions will kick up a storm, and many of the public will deplore paying teachers more, but remember, our country depends on our brightest and best becoming the brightest and the best!

Why I pay £79.00 (or £6.58 a month) for Amazon Prime



I buy between 3 and 5 items a month from Amazon. From a new TV down to a pack of elastic bands. I buy my South African brandy from them as well. Bearing in mind the average delivery charge is over £5, and Prime delivery is free, that saves me over £79 a year if I were only buying four items every three months.

In addition, I get next day delivery service by courier, and that even included an order for a box of elastic bands!

Another good thing is, Amazon have a lot of third party sellers who, more times than not, honour Amazon's Prime by waiving postage on their products – an additional bonus.

If I elected for two to three days delivery, I get a £1 credit which I can use to buy a Kindle Book of download music from Amazon, or watch paying movies on Prime TV, which is free to members of Amazon Prime. I always make sure I get delayed delivery for at least 79 items a year to ensure my Prime membership is virtually free!

Because I buy so much on Amazon, I am treated well. For example I had a £200 plus camera, a Panasonic Lumix TZ60 which broke after nine months. I emailed Amazon asking who to contact to get it repaired. Remember this was nine months later… they replied instantly and said, send it back at our expense and we will credit you with the full expense. I bought the next one up, the TX80 and was very pleased.

Using Amazon Prime, there are hundreds of both movies and television shows and a prolific amount of music to stream free of charge. I've gone a bit berserk on classical, Opera, Country and 60s Rock. All totally free to listen to or watch at any time.

However you still need to shop around. I just bought the new Dyson hair-dryer, over £400 on Amazon, but £299 just about everywhere else. Possibly an error but it pays to do your homework!

Finally, living in North London I can get many of my purchases delivered free within one hour of placing my order between 8am and midnight.

All this for less than 22p a day or less than a cheap Americano coffee a week?
