Dear Ian Blackford,

You’re right when you say unemployment is consciously created by Government. However, the reason for this is, worryingly, more sinister than that. To me, it is all about increasing the number of men and women in the Royal Armed Forces.

The invasion and destruction of Iraq and Afghanistan provided a boost to the Armed Forces’ recruitment efforts. Between Tony Blair’s lies and the Queen offering her grandchildren to inspire the gullible population, RAF had plenty of young men to send abroad on killing missions and/or to die.

After the truth emerged of how many innocent lives were lost because of Tony Blair’s lies, and because of business interests, recruitment fell. Disgruntled and traumatised veterans left the Forces.

The 2008 economic depression was a different ruse created by Governments to attract the unemployed to the Armed Forces. With the military plans Parliament is concocting at the moment (RUSI’s activities give a hint), we’re probably not that far from World War III. ‘Unemployment’ is the magic word the Government needs. Unemployment provides a more acceptable option than returning to compulsory military service.

Believe me, if you follow the adverts of employment agencies specialising in jobs connected to the military industry, i.e. military manufacturers, security companies, war/kidnapping related Insurance, etc., you will find plenty of work. In the midst of the pandemic, MoD was offering £80,000 to a weapon seller willing to do a lot of travelling abroad. All expenses paid by the Ministry.

Whilst politicians lie to the electorate, brainwashing them into believing Armed Forces are necessary for security reasons or as a deterrent or for defence if attacked, the world can only get worse.

I don’t accuse a single human being for this situation. I accuse weapons. I don’t mind at all politicians making money outside their Parliamentary duties, but bullets, landmines, grenades, bombs, rockets, torpedoes are made for killing and nothing else. If politicians don’t organise enemies, wars, fear of war, terrorism, they’ll bring about the collapse of this lucrative activity – the immoral buying and selling of Death.

If you don’t agree with me, please let me know. I’m always eager to learn.

Best wishes,
