Getting our main priorities clear

The issues faced by the reader in Breitbart’s article on Syrian refugees: https://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/07/29/syrian-muslim-uk-rejects-christians/ … are firstly the poor grammar in the first main paragraph but that’s something for another post, including the fact that it was written by a Millennial…

Project Fear in all its evil

What a thoroughly wicked and stupid headline Them have put out: Army on standby for Brexit chaos: Troops will deliver food, medicine and fuel if Britain crashes out of EU without a deal as supermarkets issue warning to stockpile essential…

RIP Godfrey Elfwick

That so many were gulled into believing such self-evidently ludicrous pronouncements points to the degradation of political discourse on the internet which Elfwick sought to deride. Spiked has a nice piece on him: In November 2016, the Guardian published a…

What a bleedin’ nerve!

I’m not referring to the gallant lass. We can write copious paragraphs, or we can show a Canadian girl travelling to the end of the earth to show that this is a worldwide problem: There are things about Lauren Southern…

Racism

Just another stream of consciousness: Excuse my ignorance but that image we have of the cotton plantations and all those films – my thoughts are Louisiana I suppose but I don’t know why I thought that. New Orleans. Now I…

Pizzagate

There is no more important topic than this and yet there is no topic more fraught with disinformation, refusal to consider, dismissal and a hundred obstacles to understanding. There is no topic more heavily dependent on copious pre-reading and having…

Gerard Batten and UKIP

This Twitter exchange took place.  I asked GB for his position on immigration, so let’s go from there: A certain amount of activity followed, some of it shown here: You’ll see where it went after that: And finally: That was…

The thot plickens

The whole hysteria over Trump meeting Putin had a ring to it which was less than ingenuous – there was clearly something else going on, also Kelly’s apoplexy and Trump’s backtracking once Kelly got to him, as every President has…

Leave has the better image overall

It’s unfortunate or fortunate, depending on your view, that the public image of Leave is JRM and Andrea J, while that of Remain is Soubry and Miller. The thoroughly unpleasant Soubry is doing great things for Leave. It’s the apoplectically…

Unrelenting

Clint Eastwood did Unforgiven, we do Unrelenting, never stopping the pressure on this b**ch until she either reverses that policy or goes. I don’t care how boring it gets – she has crossed a red line, that of betraying one’s…

The ridding of May

Everyone’s having a Sunday morning say on it but perhaps we should consider these: We’re talking about the confidence vote there, not the leadership challenge. Now to the latter: All right, let’s say the 48 letters arrive and the vote…

England and Britain

This is written in response to reader Toodles bringing it up the other day but also for our other non-Brit/Englanders. The confusion is because so many have got the wrong end of the stick or have local colouring to their…

Tommy and Trump marches today

“[Those] attending a ‘Welcome Trump’ protest on Saturday will march from the US Embassy in Nine Elms to Whitehall, where organisers say they intend to join a ‘free Tommy Robinson’ rally.” Tweets*: Pretty Massive Turnout at #FreeTommy Rally pic.twitter.com/asnol7GG43 — The…
