Work No. 827, The Most Amazing Thing

The Most Amazing Thing
Michael St.Mark 2016


A legendary Guru was once asked by a disciple, ” What is the most amazing thing in the whole world?”
He replied;
” The most amazing thing, is that although people witness their fellow humans –  friends, relatives and strangers surrounding them –  dying;  he rarely seriously considers that the same fate will inevitably befall him”

Work No. 826; A Very Conservative Lifeboat

A conservative lifeboat II
A Very Conservative Lifeboat II (Hunt Hiding in the Blacked-out Doghouse)
Michael St.Mark 2016


Abandoned relic, Walney Channel BIF Cumbria.

Second in the series of photo symbolism depicting the reality behind this Conservative government’s BS PR spin about ‘saving society’ and specifically the NHS, when people can see with their own eyes this “lifeboat” is falling apart and pointing in the opposite direction ( privatization ) to that required for its real purpose.

Privatizing public service sector healthcare is conta-indicated in terms of it being a contradiction in terms. Big business is ruthless and conducted solely for profit at any cost – even the early and preventable deaths nay murder of hundreds of thousands of British citizens through deliberate savage future profit-motivated cut-backs, poor morale, sloppy practice and top-heavy incompetent target-driven management.

A lifeboat, by its very definition of saving human lives, cannot ever be compromised in its robust structure and efficient function in order to make money. A lifeboat service cannot – nor ever should be – run for financial profit.
