Allow me to think out loud as I go along here. Sheila Struthers commented on the last education post:
Scotland is leading the way in many respects – our Curriculum for Excellence is but one component of the “singe view of the citizen” that is fast becoming the norm in the brave new world of joint “services” – life-long learning, cradle to grave monitoring.
OK, one of those links is to Subrosa whom we know to be a right-thinking person – she’s a friend – and Sheila’s opening is fine too – I’m just showing how this mind of mine works. You can tell the globalists by a number of things – they hide behind a plethora of words and the types of phrases they use give them away – International Child of the Future, that sort of thing.
Their websites are slick and often have the pale blues and yellows in them, with circular logos and links everywhere which don’t allow you to pin down who the person is. The puerile Olympic logo is a case in point – viewing us as infants, they present infantilized images.
Sheila mentioned that Scotland is being used as a guinea pig and it may well be. On this news item she links to, at first I thought she was advocating that until I read it more carefully.
The first shock, you see, was that I saw a name leap out of the page – Demos.
Then back to the first line again:
Civil servants have long been the guardians of ideas on how to run the country. Now MSPs are looking beyond them for policy solutions.
Oh no, oh dear, they’re not up north of the border spreading their poison as well are they? So many posts at my place on them, how they arose from the Tavistock, how they metamorphosed into Common Purpose. OK, let’s take some names and go exploring.
Graham Leicester. Look innocuous up front, can’t get a line on the man until you note the colour scheme and the slickness, the familiar way with words – always so friendly, with a friendly smile. I admit I don’t know him from Adam but we press on.
Oh dear. Then Carnegie and “building vibrant, resilient communities across the UK …”, “Changing minds, changing lives”. Yep, that’s them all right – that’s the rhetoric in one.
Click a link and we get: International Futures Forum, replete with the pale blues and yellows and a little word at the top left: “World Game”. Scroll down the names – “Forward Scotland” – pure CP, just like Yorkshire Forward. EU stuff.
Back to Sheila’s referenced article, which is obviously and expose of these people … let’s go to the Institute of Public Policy Research – Wiki:
The IPPR (Institute for Public Policy Research) is the leading progressive thinktank in the UK. It produces research and policy ideas committed to upholding
Exploring more widely and we get Ideas for a Better World and then looking at W&M International. You do know what they’re famous for, don’t you? Cue to Julia Middleton’s “little jerk comment” and where was that? Scottish Arts Council, wasn’t it?
I’ve seen enough. The Scots are being shafted good and proper, these people are crawling inside, around and over any policy making body with a mainline into the decisionmakers.
Scottish independence, eh?
