Mission Statement

Everyone, bar none, has something to say; from the drunk at the bar - now bereft of his favoured brand of cigarette - to the old lady in the queue for fish and chips at the local Takeaway. We all hanker for our words to be heard in public.

The quiet unprincipled janitor doesn’t exist: honest.

John Steinbeck, the great American novelist (perhaps the greatest) said in his note to Pascal Covici at the beginning of his 1952 novel East of Eden, “... Nearly everything I have is in it... the pleasure of design and some despair...” is contained within.

This is how I feel about Superwhit. I am giving you, the reader, everything I have, for good or bad, whether you believe in what I do or not. All the words are constructed to legitimise my thoughts on a variety of subjects. It’s the nature of human consciousness, to wander, to search, to delve into the recesses of the mind, to settle on a view that one can live with.

I don’t expect you to agree with me all the time, most people don’t. I understand that. I know that a person has a right to their own thoughts, their own ideals, an ideology, perhaps, they are comfortable with. That’s their prerogative. I’m happy for them to have a settled and balanced view on anything from tiddly-winks to global warming.

Me? I’m still searching. Still wondering where I want to be. Constantly thinking, “Is the Prime Minister right to say this?” Should a film director include such a disturbing scene in a movie?” Is a foreign power correct to intervene in another’s internal politics? Or the biggest question of all, should I really give a damn about any of it?

In these pieces, you’ll learn what my view is as I go along. I may change from one month to the next. I think that’s natural. But what you won’t see is a gear-change in principles. I hold a view that all are equal regardless of race or religion; that you don’t have to have money to deserve respect; that you don’t have to have an academic background to have an educated view; that you don’t have to be highly placed in a company to know what is right or wrong in the market place.

The challenge for me is that my core beliefs will not be adulterated by circumstances. They must be a constant. No matter how much this country or world becomes increasingly more greedy - more self-centred - I will never agree that the rich deserve more, that the landed merit favour, that the higher achievers require concession. We are all equal. There is no argument at Superwhit.

All I ask is that you read and you respect that the view is honestly formed. Have your say – either quietly on your own – via the response tool available for us all to read. Don’t be afraid to air your thoughts. If Superwhit provokes a response, that’s fine. If it entertains, then that is fine too. I just ask that you are sensible in your choice of language.

But as Steinbeck also said in his note, “... the box is not full,” my box isn’t either. It never can be, because we all have more to say, to give, to offer. As long as we give it honestly and fairly, no one can complain.

Here’s hoping you enjoy reading,
