The Madness of Brexit

MADMartyn Jones

Carmarthen, Wales – 31st July 2017

Many Brexiteers take a simplistic, restricted and shallow view of how the UK will leave the European Union.

It’s to be expected.

Some people are both wilfully ignorant and certain of their beliefs, even though their beliefs are no better than reactionary and rationalised prejudice, socialised absurdity and tidy-minded incongruence.

It’s to be expected. Continue reading

The Conceit of Remainers: The Brexit Boloney Continues

Carmarthen, Wales 1st August 2017

I am a citizen of the European Union; I have always supported the European ideal; and I will never stop fighting Brexit until it has been consigned to the annals of history as a temporary aberration, a time when things could have gone very badly, but didn’t.

I think that I am right to support our continued membership of the European family. I also think that the Brexiteers, if they are really looking out for the interests of their fellow islanders, are absolutely wrong to push for Brexit. Or better said, I think that Brexit could be the nastiest, the most divisive and the most damaging decision in the history of the UK.

Apparently this makes me conceited.

Brexit is Bullshit

Peppa-Pig-eOneMartyn Jones

Carmarthen, Wales 20th July 2017

Let’s face it.

Brexit is bullshit.

Maybe it’s worse than bullshit.

Either way, one thing is for sure. Brexit is the most revealing, significant and catastrophic episode of irrational, self-harming and bloody-minded lunacy in the entire history of the British Isles.

But, why did it turn out that way?

What drove so many people to vote for far greater risk, uncertainty about the future and the rejection of the stability, presence and influence that we have within the EU?

Can Ruth save the Tories?

Carmarthen, Wales 23rd July 2017

The UK government is in a mess. Theresa May’s team lacks coherence, cohesiveness and credibility. It’s driven by instinct and its instincts are not clever. It’s a team that has taken on far more than it can adequately manage. It has bluffed and blustered its way to the forefront of the political beauty stakes only to be confronted with significant political, economic and social challenges for which it has no rational or reasonable strategies, policies or plans.

The Tory cabinet is about as effective, credible and desirable as an unruly gang of drunken revellers on an extended stag-do in Benidorm.

Only Fools and Horses

In reply to ‘Politicians need to get digitally literate – and fast’ 

Martha Lane Fox, a UK House of Lords’ cross-bencher and founder of doteveryone (a think-tank of sorts), wrote an article published in The Guardian, which basically argued that UK politicians need to “get digitally literate – and fast”.

But, what does that actually mean?

Carmarthen, Wales 13th July 2017

I’m British by accident of birth. It’s not a bad accident. In fact it is fortunate. But, that is by the by.

I was born in a very welsh Wales of tightly knit communities, close harmony choral singing, coal of Saudi Arabian proportions, heavy industry, agriculture and larger-than-life legends.

The 4th big data bullshit is here, and it is completely reimagining the way we conceptualise, think and reason.

Consider this: The ten key dimensions of Applied Business Knowledge and AI

10 dimensions B

AI, KNOWLEDGE, INFORMATION AND DATA

“Knowledge is the capacity to give correct answers to questions.”

“There is no well trodden path that takes a straight line from symbols, through data to knowledge and wisdom. This is just some nonsense invented by the IT industry.” – Martyn Jones

Big data is tremendously interesting for syndicates, businesses and societies as a tool, platform and hyper-hype whizzo technique to help them stay together, pumped and economically with-it in today’s fast-moving digital bazaar of a transformational world.
