Back to last solar cycles end.

I got banned by martyring myself from a Triumph Forum.

I went my own way.

I'm still going my own way.

I'm fighting the USA and CIA and Mi5 now.

It all started with this rant, 11 years ago.

I give you one of my previous lifes great works.

Leadership, Control, Political correctness and the results.

Suggest getting a coffee this a LONG rant.

A ruling clique is a group of people who jointly rule an oligarchic form of government.

Ruling cliques generally differ from another type of oligarchy: a military junta. Military juntas are always ruled by military personnel (often high-ranking like general).

A ruling clique can include people from various professions.

The ruling elites who comprise the leadership tend to form a council, political party, or another form of an organized group.

The high ranking members share a rough balance of power although sometimes one or more members seek to increase their power at the expense of others, or some of them may attempt to transform the system into an autocracy or make it more democratic.

Some ruling cliques could be considered a form of aristocracy while others are based on a very small circle of rulers rather than a broader based organization such as a political party. In some cases, the entire ruling clique is composed of a council of leaders who are the only members of the clique.

Problems happen when the clique’s territory becomes over-run with people with opposing values, views and goals.

Or one person has the following or powers to enlighten people or join them together to such as extent the clique is at risk of their territory being taken over.

Call that guy Robin Hood.

Turf wars are common in such situations. Also the use of people who are meek and mild to execute reformation of the clique and clawing back of territory which was taken, territory that was offered to others.

The turf war could take many obvious shapes.

There is the most obvious of all, Political correctness bandwagon.

You could start a process by deprioritising certain elements of a forum, such as problem areas like general discussions and giving them less prime locations.

Ultra fascists may look at the deprioritising of the space in which non-clique are inhabiting; especially those people viewed as undesirable by ruling powers. Firstly by moving their chat section down to the bottom of a forum.

Making constant whimpering noises when they feel something is a bit too much for their comfort zone.

By using the excuse of not upsetting anyone, the politically correct are demanding that people behave like the fool who would please everyone; that everyone must become such a fool!

All must accept the notions of the Politically Correct as truth, or else!
This is the same mentality that inspired the Inquisition and forced Galileo to recant; the same mentality that inspired the Nazis and obtained the Holocaust.

Once expression gets placed in a straitjacket of official truth, then the madness that occurs in all totalitarian states is obtained.

Life, in private and public, becomes a meaningless charade where delusion thrives and terror rules.

This is mutton dressed as lamb.

Usually the most evil fascist people are parading as the most sincere.

They hunt out and desire jobs as moderators on forums and privately masturbate over their new found powers.

They actively seek to drive out individuals who are not fitting into the clique’s scheme of things, as above examples show.

By using the excuse of not upsetting anyone, the politically correct are demanding that people behave like the fool.

Have you ever stopped to wonder why 40% of people don't bother to vote anymore? Have you ever stopped to wonder why, which ever party is in power, nothing ever gets any better; in fact gets worse the more control that is levered in.

The answer is simple - political correctness. This left wing ideology has very cleverly, and by stealth, replaced old school British values.

We can associate this to many things, including internet forums run by groups of left wingers.

No-one dare suggest or stand up to any policy that is not politically correct or given by figures of authority, otherwise the PC Brigade/clique will label them the 'nasty' party and “work” on them till they leave.

Witness the similar events in politics such as the Conservative party policy U turns. In a desperate effort to lose their 'nasty' party label they have become Blue Labour, a slightly diluted form of New Labour!

Now so entangled in the mess that they have created, they have actually lost their own identities and destroyed their own self image, the very thing that drew people to them.

This is all while the image of undesirable non-clique is left undamaged, bar within the minds of the cliques themselves.

It’s hard to not actually being able to see the wood for the trees.
Direct parallels throughout history can be directly drawn upon and related to what has happened to certain internet forums.

Evidence of this effect is amply demonstrated by the Soviets, who embraced Political Correctness with the Communist Revolution. Look at the lumbering, pompous, impoverished, humourless monster this Nation became as is now History. Does one need to quote further?

Political correctness pleases a very small minority at the expense of all others. It’s not reasonable to expect to please all of the people all of the time and this leads to where we are today.

You back yourself into such a corner with constantly changing boundaries that are applied differently to each person you dislike. These decisions end up taking form or power from vastly ranging situations, where decisions are made on a “we need to get rid of him basis” rather than any logical or reliably ruling. Things get MORE absurd the more people you need to remove.

This total lack of parity means that no one bar your own clique respects your ideals, values or authority. You become a constant joke, you alienate people to such as extent they leave you in droves and then they see you as a laughing stock, yet you see yourself as a saviour.

I remember being told things could be so much better if I changed the odd word here and there by one official.

I remember being embraced by clique for a while and I remember this little piece of advice as key to entering it.

Entering into somewhere I had no interest in going. Attempts made to mould me into something that better suited certain people’s ultra conservative views.

I had no interest in changing myself to fit in with the ideals of a few fascists. I do not expect to be lectured by another adult or come to a forum to be told how to behave; especially by people who fit into a small minority of ultra conservative gumbos.

People have overestimated their importance. People who underestimated the importance of people like me in the success of what their turf had become.

Unless plain speaking is allowed, clear thinking is denied.

There can be no good reason for denying freedom of expression, there is no case to rebut, only the empty slogans of people inspired by selfishness and unrestrained by morality.

The proponents of this PC nonsense neither understand the implications of what they say, nor why they are saying it: they are insane. They cannot be expected to make constant and unprejudiced decisions as they are mentally imbalanced, go on witchhunts, chat privately alot or suffer some overly sensitive mentality where they view everything they read from the perspective of someone else, someone who maybe offended.

Now, in the 2008 the results of being bourgeois (retaining traditional notions), is being labelled racist, sexist etc. and risk losing your job, your reputation, being jostled in the street, kicked off a forum, being subject to judicial penalty and scorn.

And it is this very extremity of reaction that has won media attention and the name Political Correctness, though the reaction will become even more unpleasant with the next generation.

A community declines when the majority of its citizens become selfish, and under this influence it slowly dismantles all the restraints upon self-indulgence established by manners, customs, beliefs and law: tradition.

As each subsequent generation of selfish citizens inherits control of the community, it takes its opportunity to abandon more of the irksome restraints that genius and wisdom had installed. The proponents of this social demolition achieve their irrational purpose by publicly embracing absurdity through slogans while vilifying any who do not support their stance. (see how people with their OWN minds that have been resisting the authority and current direction being enforced upon on a certain forum are being treated).

The purpose of this clean-up is to enshrine irrational fears, or fancies, as truth, the concerns of some ruling powers are displayed through the use of presumptuous words, constant belittling, stale rhetoric, warnings and resultant public pronouncements:

Dissembles the real nature of the claim.

Identifies any dissenters as enemies of the truth.

Acts as an excuse for any crimes committed in its name.

We can all relate to this.

To attempt to point out the odious nature of Political Correctness is to restate the crucial importance of plain speaking, freedom of choice and freedom of speech; these are the community's safe-guards against the imposition of tyranny, indeed their absence is tyranny.

Which is why any such restrictions on expression such as those invoked by public decency, are grave matters to be decided by each person, if you do not like something, there is no requirement to read it, have we lost all ability to have conviction in our beliefs?

If something pisses me off the LAST thing I’d do is whimper to a moderator, I’d either ignore it, or present my case and you better stand back if I don’t agree; such issues are all part of life and no problem for me to deal with, they should be decided not by the dictates of the clique, but resolved in your own mind. This gives you STRENGTH, power, EXACTLY what the PC band wagon wants to remove. They want you to be quiet, non thinking and compliant.

I think PC has robbed certain people of the powers of conviction, you know, being a rock, a man, instead it’s turned people into whinging old women who go and complain to the powers that be cause that’s what political correctness has given them…
The ability to label a person as bad, racist etc and then click a button knowing someone will come and save their ass. Get a LIFE!!!

Well that’s not how I go about business. I am quite happy to defend myself, as are all the other banned people, oddly we all share one thing in common, we didn’t respect the self imposed authority of a few fascists and we were/are willing to stand up for what we felt was right.

Especially when it was related to a place we all enjoyed and loved, a place that’s been on self destruct for 24months.

Ever since that chitchat section was moved.

That’s enough for now.

I hate PC fascists who haven’t even got a clue of the long term effects of the disease they are spreading, stick to reading the DailyMail and stop fucking up the world.

You haven't the brainpower to work out what you are doing, where it is going and that YOU are a puppet.

This is a view of how it looks from the outside.

Getting praise from a moderator for entering into the spirit must be a real insult to anyone.

Who wants to be told off, lectured, praised and rewarded by the same person, especially someone spreading such disease as I write about, not me.

I'd find being talked up and down by a 50 year Daily Mail reader from Up'North a real insult.

I'd want to slap him. It's just so vomit enducing.

Can you not see whats pissing people off and making you a laughing stock, it's treating people like you're their bloody nanny!

Clueless! No idea about people, wrong person/s for the job!

If you change we might like you, GET LOST!?

(1hr and 5mins later), Ciao.

The 325lb springs are much better.

Still far from soft.

Suspension has been totally changed in an effort to "calm" down the car :)

Raised the rear by removing the spring block but leaving it on the 2" down uprights holes.

Raised 1/2".

Front end raised a bit to match.

Camber at the back 3.8deg neg on each side (car aint a banana!)

Camber at front 1.4deg neg.

No toe angle at the front.

Adjusted rear toe angle to "more toe-in" setting was 1/32nd of an inch, made it 1 turn more toe-in on the rosejointed track arms.

Been trying to fine-tune the car a bit before more surgery. It got a bit "race" and without a 4cyl boat anchor at the front it's a different animal. I am now trying to find a good allround feel.

Pretty happy with the front-end now. Got alot less wheel movement transfering into chassis and tub movement on the new springs, probably got more grip with the 1.4neg camber over the more extreme levels before. Feels similar at lower steering angles but the lack of camber seems to have improved the grip deeper into the corner/steering angle, like mid corner when you often get understeer in the triumphs, especially 6cyl ones!

I was finding the rear-end a bit nervous with the extra power so I gave it more toe-in, which seems to have chilled it out a bit, especially lifting off and turning or braking and turning.

Best its been by a longshot. Went to extreme, just dawned on me oneday that my first spitfire was probably alot softer and more relaxed to drive.....Now there is no need for rock-hard springs cause it doesnt have an inbuilt handling /problem/imbalance with a 4cyl iron lump.

If the dampers had adjustment on the bump (AVO are just rebound, half the reason racers like 800lbs springs, cause they use shit dampers!) I reckon you run 250lbs springs. Problem is then running out of movement on the balljoint on the top wishbones at extreme bump. Ideally the top-wishbone mounting pivot needs moving upwards 1/2".

Either way a step forward.

Still enjoying occasional blats and not overly keen on taking it off the road yet!

Need a few fasteners to finish off but hardwork is done.

Happy with it.

Think it's cage time next. I've some interesting plans I drew up today. They are quite radical. A real move into a new level and should add ALOT of stiffness into the centre of the cabin and I can join this new stuff to the new suspension at the back...That's all I will say! ?I think I can bend the CDS with a hydraulic pipe bender would make my life much easier if I can go it alone.
Time to gather materials and take a break!

Annoyance Remedies

Bit sick of the dash reflecting on the windscreen so time to fix it. I've wanted to "sort" the dash anyway as I never really finished it.

Going for a simpe and sleek look.

Also neatens up the corners by the cage. Time to add a little vanity to the car.

Pretty easy work. Couple of bits of alloy, bit of drilling, sanding, cutting. The groups of 3 holes are there to let some warm air from the heater (thats not plumbed in yet) onto the window. Minimalist.

Made it in two parts cause that suited the piece of alloy I had to work with.

Trimmed up.


Just fills over what was an ugly gap. Powder coating on the cage was crap tempted to whip it out and get it done properly once I have done some mods to it.

Kind of impartial looking, that was the idea, not styled as such.
Gotta stick a bit more leatherette on the remaining white bit infront of todays panels.

Quite happy with that...I got an urge to carpet the car again, some of that thin stretchy stuff that you stick on with 3m spray glue. Not to worried about every gram now....Plus it's easy to deal with compared to white paint...

Intend to "finish" off numerous areas of the car like this dash business. Some of the stuff is a bit scrappy still. Plus I actually enjoyed making those panels..Wasted 8hrs on it.
