So what does the name tee2i mean?

Well it's shorthand for the independence index. This blog takes independence seriously. There's no problem, in principle, with a country being part of a confederation or partnership, the UK is part of NATO. But the EU is a failing confederation and our independence is threatened by continued membership. But there's more to politics than the EU. Neither is politics all about leaning left or rightward on any issue, it's far more subtle than that. It's all down to the quality of life so let's aim high. It's our right to do so.

War. What war?

Perpetual war

170 deaths so far170 deaths so farRemember the wars? There's one in Iraq. One minute we're transferring areas to local supervision and everything is going to plan and the next minute the British army is hunkered down, being bombed at will and living in tents. Our last Leader said that he'd supply anything the army requested.The problem is that the procurement services seem to get all the wrong sorts of equipment or run out of money. We have had innumerable deaths and injuries from our soldiers being sent out in a variety of unarmoured or unsuitable vehicles such as the notorious snatch vehicles.

Improving society

Think before you speak

Safe in their handsSafe in their hands
Not so many weeks ago a senior policeman started a debate on the lines that ALL teenagers are horrid little things and so cannot have a drink until they are 21 years old. This idea, if passed into law, ignores the fact that a family Christmas would become a rather frigid affair if the law were obeyed and thirsty teenagers were present.By the way, they are not as little as you might think and, now they are grown up they spend so much more time away with their friends, it would be so lovely if we could all sit down together now and then. However, by contrast,a family celebration could become a rather furtive affair if father in an expansive mood poured his offspring a glass of wine: "pull the curtains Dad, you never know".

The shape of things to come ?

Quoted from bookQuoted from bookAli Dizaei has written a book called Not One of Us He is now the Borough Commander of Police in Hammersmith and Fulham (and prior to that of Hounslow) This is an exact quote from the book.
I really am not joking.

Hounslow is huge, exciting and diverse - just like London. In Hounslow, 144 different languages are spoken. There are 10,000 asylum seekers. It is the leading borough for race hate crime in the UK. One in three of the local councillors are black or Asian and in some areas of the borough, two out of three of the population are non-white. In truth though, Hounslow is simply a microcosm of what every borough in London, and many in the rest of the UK, will look like in twenty years from now.

Gosh.

Speak up Mandela

Dr.BeetrootDr.BeetrootThe Health Minister of South Africa, Manto Tshabalala-Msimang nicknamed Dr.Beetroot says that AIDS can be cured by eating lemon, garlic and beetroot. There are about 5.5 million AIDS victims in South Africa. It is reckoned that the numbers could have been 80% fewer if she had done her job properly. She is presently mired in accusations of theft, alcoholism, erratic behaviour and misuse of public funds as well as general lunacy. She is married to the treasurer of the ANC and enjoys the patronage of President Thabo Mbeki who has similarly weird views about HIV/AIDS .
On the other hand, her well-respected deputy Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge advocates anti-virals and medical care. She has international support and is admired in South Africa. She has bravely spoken publicly about the health crisis . Not surprisingly she has been given the sack, victimised and claims for monies owed have been fabricated.

Don't trigger campaign

Dont triggerDont triggerIt would seem that the Home Office and The Greater London Authority agree that the ends justify the means by their support of illegal pirate radios. The Stop the Trigger campaign is to be run by 20 of the 150 pirate radio stations in the UK . It is being organised by Urban Concepts who used to run the Imperial Gardens Nightclub in Southwark. The aim is to give a voice to those bereaved by gun crime and any proceeds will go to Mothers against Guns The police have helped create the ads to be run. DJs refute the claim that many pirate radio stations are run by criminal gangs and are a front to sell drugs. Higgy Rant of Boom Boom radio which covers the Southwark area and is listened to by two thirds of the population said that he felt that the police were beginning to uninstitutionalise their racism and he praised this. He also said that the National Black Police Association had been particularly helpful and that raids on the pirates had ceased for the duration of the campaign. He added that the pirates promised by crossing their hearts and hoping to die that they would not deal in any drugs or guns whilst the campaign ran. Commander Ali Dizaei, leader of the NPBA has designed a new police belt to be sold to police constables for 30 Euros so that they can register their support for the campaign.
