Winter is coming

Interesting reading about internecine warfare in another land but BC and Alberta seem to be at loggerheads. Also interesting is that energy is the N1 topic in Oz at the moment too. Perhaps a global crisis coming up?


Forgive the quick ‘Game of Thrones’ riff but I foresee a change in politics here on the left coast of BC. The price of gas (petrol) is currently up at European levels and there’s even a threat of shortages if the inter-NDP turf war between BC and Alberta continues throughout Summer. All over a pipeline expansion. Not that the Ottawa Trudeaupians will be doing anything. The e-ideological blinkers are on and the people who will end up hurting the most are your basic average Canadian. The poorest most of all.

Let me expand. Higher gas and ‘carbon’ taxes mean the price of everything goes up. Why? Well because in Canada most stuff moves by truck and if the cost of transport goes up, what do you think the distributors and retailers are going to do?

    The same is true here, yet whenever some oaf raises inflation they immediately waffle on about taxing people more (which causes even more inflation) or mindlessly prattle about the ‘evil rich’ while demanding government – which is the cause of the problem – ‘do something’, such as price controls or rent controls while ignoring that the biggest cost to your pay each month is *tax*.

    I don’t know if it is stupidity, arrogance, blindness or just plain ideological mindlessness but the problem always comes down to tax.

    Tommy Robinson Jailed for 13 Months today




    Ex PC comments

    I feel the same: upset & furious

    After arrest begins:
    Orwellian Police arrest Tommy Robinson for journalism 25.5.2018

    What sort of Nation persecutes a man who seeks to expose mass sexual abuse and depravity? The answer is – the Nation that we have become in 2018.

    Well, James and the rest of OOL, you have made the grade. You have been censored by HMG. As Chris Spivey might call her, you have been made persona non grata by her majesty the queer. And may the duck of edinburgh be with you.

    Pcar left another comment saying what the post and 21 comments during the afternoon covered. Seems stupid because there are many American pundits now talking about it on Twitter. Yet we can’t say a word. When it’s lifted, we shall certainly be saying things.

    Just checked Twitter – about half of mine but not all are gone, Caolan’s tweets have all gone, Katie Hopkins’s has gone. We’ll bide our time.

    Here’s one – Cassandra Fairbanks at Gateway Pundit has an article up, explaining all.

    Do May, Rudd and her comrades not realise how damaging it is to UK Economy when USA/World is reporting on Judiciary obeying the state by depriving liberty, fair trial and press reporting?

    Impartial UK Law, like The City, are valuable assets – hence why international contracts between non-UK firms frequently subject to Law of England.

    Destroy UK reputation – must stay in EU?

      Think its more primal and kneejerk idiotic than that. They completely fail to understand modern forms of communication.
