19 times he disparaged indigenous Scots. Right, got that. Versus a Hindu in England:
Right, got that one too … planning another 20 thousand a year, safety ensured by our armed forces. Hmmmm, is there any alternative to this mayhem, this bad dream?
I notice people suddenly praying for God to deliver them from all this. Pardon me, but if I were gazing down at the rejection of everything I’d offered … the protection, guidance and succour … and suddenly they’d seen what was upon them … and still they flatly rejected me … I think I’d be inclined to say bye bye, I’m off to help those who believe I exist.
But then again, I’m not God, who moves in mysterious ways. Now, apart from ditching the values underpinning the west, how else did all this come about? Specifically I mean … as in the grubby politics?
Well, it’s that neat little trick, innit, where coming up to a GE or council elections, the tosser MPs go all moderate, start making promises, luvving the people then, the moment they’re back in, it’s all pile onto the incumbent, hound him out of office and put in someone worse to implement the real agenda of the puppetmasters.
That headline phrase is known and used by most British people around the times when we, as a nation, remember those who died in the Service of their Country. We revere the Cenotaph, and the simple war memorials which, across this Nation, remember the shadows of the men and women who died whilst defending the Freedom which was earned, in part, by their sacrifice.
Those who died abroad have graves around the world, mainly well-tended by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the successor to the Imperial War Graves Commission, first established in 1917. Many have no known grave, either perishing at sea, or in the charnel houses which were the blood-soaked battlefields of the First World War.
But there is another theatre altogether where, to my mind, the atrocities and carnage should also be remembered; remembered for the absolute disgrace of the then Prime Minister, ‘Tony’ Blair, giving in to the pressure exerted by the bloody Americans, the Lefty-Liberals, the European Union; along with the internal Labour politicians, all of whom just wanted a quiet life, away from the strife of Northern Ireland’s policies and politics: and announced the SURRENDER to the SinnFeinIRA bombing campaign, which took the form of the Belfast Agreement.
This surrender allowed the terrorists of SinnFeinIRA to enter the Government of the Province, allowed the hundreds of murderous terrorists to gain their unjustified freedom, and gave the bloody Republic a foothold into Northern Ireland’s governance.
We read today of the possibility of a sustained and continuous SinnFeinIRA bombing attack which would have set off Sixteen bombs over 18 days, with lulls on Sundays. It would have been a chance to revive the infamous IRA graffiti in Belfast: ‘Every night is gelignite.’
The main terrorist behind this planned carnage was Patrick Magee, the infamous Brighton Bomber.
No one had suspected that small, soft-spoken visitor to Brighton’s Grand Hotel as the killer as he completed his deadly and murderous plan to assassinate Margaret Thatcher, and it is a fact that she missed death by two minutes, as she had vacated the bathroom by those few vital seconds, before that same bathroom was torn apart by that blast, which killed five and injured thirty five more.
Magee’s one mistake? He left half a hand print on the hotel registration card, and this was paired by the Forensic analyst Steve Turner, part of the team seeking a match for the Roy Walsh palm-print.
On January 17, 1985, he’d just spent 11 hours at his desk, studying prints, when he noticed something unusual. The palm-print he was examining had been taken in 1967 from a teenager called Patrick Magee, after he had broken into a shop in Norwich, where his parents were living at the time. With mounting excitement, the analyst charted 16 points of similarity.
Stephen Turner had just discovered who had planted the Brighton bomb.
Murderer Magee was released, and the killers entered Stormont under the trafficked name of SinnFein.
The betrayals travelled further, and slowly but surely, the Unionist cause was diminished over the years, under both Labour and Tory Governments, until we see the latest betrayal, named ‘The Windsor Framework’ by the traitorous Prime Minister Sunak, along with the head of the European Union, which establishes the permanent presence of the EU in Northern Ireland, the Irish Sea Border, and the fact that the Union of the Four Nations which comprises the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is slowly and surely being dissolved before our eyes.
Not previously high on the agenda of voters more concerned with a crumbling, two-tier healthcare system and a chronic housing crisis, a recent poll found that a small majority (56%) of Irish respondents believe the country has accepted too many refugees over the past year.
Ooh, must be racism!
Ireland is currently housing about 74,000 asylum applicants, 49,227 of whom are Ukrainians.
Oh. OK, must be over-estimation of the true figures!
A year ago, the total number was 7,500.
Oh. Errr...? The mythical 'far right', then?
Now anti-refugee sentiment has exploded amid a devastating housing crisis, made worse by the destabilising effects of public sector cuts and stagnant wages.
These protests have drawn from the same rhetorical, tactical, and ideological energy as the recent anti-refugee riot in Knowsley, England.
Imported from Britain, no less!
Preying on these fears, Irish far-right activists are disseminating false information about criminal activities. Proliferating through social media on any given day are rumours of sexual assault or the harassment of women by migrants, or grainy, unverifiable video clips of the same.
Ah, so when you can't deny that incidents have actually happened because there's video evidence, just whine about the qaulity of the video instead. Genius!
In reality, the far-right menace remains small.
So why are you getting hot under the collar about it?
But the spread of the contagion could provide a challenge from the right as Sinn Féin feathers itself for power for the first time in the Irish republic . Growing anti-migrant sentiment could benefit the more hardline immigration policies of parties such as Fine Gael.
Only time will tell, however, if the anti-immigration consensus seen in large parts of Britain can be replicated in Ireland.
If the issues you decry as 'nonsense' keep up, you'll see it all right.
Obviously it's completely wrong to oppose multiculturalism in any shape or form in the West (fine in any other country though) ... it makes for a wonderfully tolerant, integrated society and on behalf of you, I fully support the billions spent on luxury accommodation for fighting age illegals welcome guests who detest and wish to kill adore and wish to befriend us.
So this post in no way reflects poorly on any other ethnicity living in our their new land ... refugees in designer gear, with cellphones, are most welcome to overrun us do as they will. These below are just observations of fact, that's all ... easily verifiable or debunkable:
On Wednesday morning, there was an assault in the Pierres Vives neighbourhood in Vesoul. A man attacked two women.
The attack occurred in the Rue Cariage. The perpetrator attacked a 51-year-old woman. She was driving children to an Institut médico-éducatif (IME). “He was unarmed, he pulled her out of the minibus and hit her with his hands,” said the deputy mayor of Vesoul, who was in charge of security.
The man then went after another 72-year-old woman. “He followed her to her house and beat her,” Ludovic Ballester continued. She was admitted to the Vesoul hospital centre as an absolute emergency. Her prognosis is life-threatening.
The perpetrator was arrested by the police. An investigation has been launched, led by the Vesoul public prosecutor’s office. France Bleu
“The aggression against two women, a driver of the minibus of the medico-educational Institute of Vesoul, and a local resident – who is in serious condition – throws fear in the peaceful district of Pierres vives.”
Never mind ... those two women had it coming, according to the govt, the perp was just not feeling kindly at the time, nothing to see there. Let's move onto more pleasant topics:
Marko Polo, Humza, Ben Habib, Rishi Sunak, James Cleverly, Maros Sefcovic ... what's the common thread in those names or origins? Not saying anything negative ... absolutely wonderfully welcome to wreak their havoc help our land on our behalf. I mean look what we have to put up against them ... Angela Rayner and Keir whatsisname. Lineker I think it was.
So everything's fine and Phobe-Plod will be on your doorstep if you dare disagree. I mean, look at this Invade-o-phobe spewing his hatred:
Shame on him for displaying a British flag in Britain. And as for an English flag ... is that not the ensign from hell? Jack Straw certainly thought so.
The last one is still this side of the Styx, as we are ... for how much longer will any of us be about, to be maudlin about it? Personally, I avoid funerals and weddings like the plague, I might not even send anything ... probably won't. It's truly not disrespect ... it's just too close for comfort.
I knew Mark from his own site and briefly at OoL, plus he's a Scriblerus ... that's in present tense as no one passing over leaves Scriblerus, you have to get out before. 😎
Charity Freedom from Torture labelled it a “showboat trip” after it emerged that the Guardian, the BBC, the Daily Mirror, the Independent and the i newspaper were not invited.
Sonya Sceats, chief executive at Freedom from Torture, described the policy as a “cash-for-humans” scheme.“Following the outpouring of support for Gary Lineker and his compassionate stand on behalf of refugees, this government knows it is on the back foot and is once again ramping up the cruelty to distract from their own failures.”
I'm sure that's what you'd like to think. I bet you haven't asked anyone outside your own circle what they think though, have you?
But then again, there is one way the public is certainly served by this spectacle. He did draw up these laws; he did needlessly send the police after tens of thousands of people. So it’s not just right but important that politicians end up ensnared in the traps they set for others. So next time a Prime Minister intends to abridge the liberty of millions, they may remember the scenes of the Boris trial and pause.
Listening to the ridiculous wrangling over the minutiae of the rules almost provokes sympathy for Boris Johnson – until you remember those caught up in just-as-ridiculous laws which he imposed and decided to criminalise.
The woman handcuffed for queuing for a coffee shop.
The young woman from Pontypool fined £2,000 after visiting a home to support a friend who had fled an abusive relationship.
The man fined for having driven too far to go fishing.
Parents in Broxborne fined for letting their child have a sleepover with a friend.
The Horncastle pensioners fined for eating a bag of chips in a laundrette.
The Spectator was arguing for some time that the Covid rules should be decriminalised and reduced to guidance. No. 10 had very little to lose by calling off the cops. I wonder if, by now, Johnson is starting to wish that he had done so.
I could personally add scenes of hysteria at ASDA and Morrisons … the former where I’d taken three loo roll packs of nine when there was no sign saying I could not (they put the sign up during this dispute and a customer defended me, I gave her one of the packs, they said that that was illegal and I was acting criminally, colluding with my “accomplice” I’d never met before) … the latter where staff management were called because I’d stood 5’6” away from the person ahead in the checkout queue and had given management a piece of my mind as standing at 6 feet would have put my trolley halfway across the walkway, blocking other customers.
Look, I’d said … I’d had a personal discussion with the virus itself which had agreed to waive the 6 inches just this once, as long as I’d not do it again.
“No,” they’d wailed, “that’s the rule!”
“And rulez iss rulez, ja, und vill be obeyed at all times!”
Or more vitally … May and Boris both colluding to not bring in Brexit at all but instead this criminal Withdrawal “Agreement” connivance with the EU who should no longer have had any say in UK matters.
...nobody knows where ENO will be in a year’s time. In November, Arts Council England (ACE) announced it was axing ENO’s £12.6m annual grant unless the company moved wholesale out of London, throwing in the idea of Manchester as a possible destination, but without backing this up with any sort of plan or research. January brought a temporary reprieve, but a move out of London by 2026 is still demanded.
“There is fear in the whole UK opera world when you look at that 30% loss of funding and the effect on talent, innovation, accessibility and the future of the art form.
They've suggested Manchester, not Mars.
“It’s bigger than ENO. The reason why you have internationally renowned UK talent is because they have come through an ecosystem that supports artists at every stage. Taking ENO out of that ecosystem is devastating. I fear we are losing a whole generation of talent who cannot be sustained in this country.”
If they are really talented, they'll go to you. You don't need to go to them. Isn't that what talent does?
Started by Microdave, further torn apart by Ripper:
Lithium is highly reactive when exposed to the atmosphere and has to be stored in a vacuum, or an inert liquid/atmosphere. It contains all the ingredients to self sustain fire, and will continue to reignite as long as it is exposed. The only way to properly extinguish a lithium fire is to completely submerge it in water. The most common cause of battery fire is thermal runaway - when one cell goes it heats the others around it and causes a chain reaction.
Lithium EV batteries will not accept charge below freezing, the battery has to be heated before charging can begin. The range is significantly reduced in low ambient temperatures, and they become dangerous if over charged.
The defendants also mentioned the impact the campaign had had on their friend Xavier Gonzalez-Trimmer, who killed himself after spending time in prison over an Insulate Britain protest.
Pritchard said: “He was a brave, gentle and caring human being who could see the future we were facing and was desperate to do something about it, and now he’s dead.”
