The Coffee House Wall Write ruthlessly what you believe to be the truth, or else shut up!


The Coffee House Wall – September 2018

This is the Coffee House Wall for this week. I won't say that it is your chance to communicate with us, as we are all in this together. It is, nevertheless, the Conservative Blog post that has no particular theme, and where everything is on topic. Let's just remember that we want to avoid ad hominem attacks on others. We don't want to engage with trolls. We want to moderate our language ourselves as responsible and mature adults, choosing to use fruity language only where it is necessary. This is our opportunity to show what the Spectator Coffee House Wall could have been like.

  1. Thank the Lord, and Peter. Even if the few remaining posters feel that they are talking into a void, please remember that there are some of us who check in every day to learn from the feet of our elders.

  2. Frank.
    It is our and not US troops defending Estonia for NATO. Should Putin go too far, he should reflect that firstly we still have a nuclear deterrent and secondly Theresa May would dearly love a diversion from her current domestic problems.

  3. The omni-all one’s gone totally loopy. no point in arguing with someone whose place should be life-long asylum residency.

  4. The barbarian’s travelling, absorbing the mood of the mid-Europe recusants, enjoying it because the mood has clearly morphed, and not in favour of the EU loving crowd.

    Are you getting any news about Chemnitz? That’s the place of about quarter million, of which near ten pre cent are immigrants, most of them law abiding, but a sizeable chunk more than boisterous, a trait more than matched by the locals. It’s Prussia, you know.

  5. Thank you, Peter, for pulling the switch, it seems to have woken up one of the resident gurus. His modesty prevented him from posting a posting he placed for the link he furnished also here. Why? It was a good response. Are we going to see the omni-all one responding to it? Hmmm

  6. If you like moving pictures you may look at the link below, it doesn’t last long. Not that it should keep the smile on your face for long though:

  7. Omni-all one?

  8. Interesting times:

    “This past weekend, Thuringia’s AfD chief Björn Höcke took part in a march organized by the far-right, anti-Islam group, PEGIDA – an incident that shows “how the AfD and the neo-Nazis cooperate,” according to Thomas Oppermann, vice president of the German Bundestag.
    Oppermann is just one of the senior politicians echoing calls for the AfD to be subject to surveillance by the country’s domestic security agency, the Office for the Protection of the Constitution, or BfV.
    The BfV’s tasks and powers
    The BfV is charged with collecting and analyzing information on:
    1. Efforts directed against the free democratic basic order or against the existence and the security of the federation or one of its states
    2. Intelligence activities carried out on behalf of a foreign power
    3. Efforts jeopardizing foreign interests of the Federal Republic of Germany by the use of violence or the preparation thereof
    4. Efforts directed against the idea of international understanding, especially against the peaceful coexistence of peoples”


    By a country mile, the best long read on the ‘tubes. Ol’ Remus, like many of us who once populated this patch recovering from serious health setbacks, is in intense survivalist mode. Heed his words and the links he so assiduously garners to consolidate his message. It’s too late for us, but for the sake of those who will have to cope with the future he prognosticates, let us concentrate our fading faculties and at least ‘do no harm’ – as the first rule of wise medical prescription suggests.

    As always, a nice picture to kick off the musing. So set aside a chunk of your day and enjoy.

  10. I really am not convinced by all this Russia did it stuff, I tend to believe Putin when he said if we did it they would be dead.

  11. John birch, September 6th, 2018 – 15:05

    It beggars belief that anyone with brains would be convinced, John, have a look here or the two other sited furnished in the narrative (Moon of Alabama and Craig Murray).

    The story will do for the masses, the MSM scribblers vacuous of a moral compass, but what worries is the sloppiness and quite amateurish construction of the false flag op, one would hope that our spook agencies are staffed with more capable people.

  12. September 11th – WTO – Who dunnit?
    September 17th – Operation Market Garden – Who dunnit?
    September 17th – Constitution Day – Who will do it?

    Response? Surely a silent nod of approval, and maybe a sardonic smile of acceptance as the endgame of western civilisation plays out was all that was required?

    The “Brucie Bonus” (*) for me was Frank P quoting from Voltaire’s “Poème sur le désastre de Lisbonne.”

    Oh, the unintended irony of that title in consideration of the mess that we are in today! If there is a Hell, then I hope that the Bliar, the “One eyed Scottish idiot”, Dave, Doris, Sniffy, PH1 and the rest of the remainers all rot in it.

    * “Bruce” as in Forsyth, you understand, and not as in Bruce the bounder and reprobate also known as Andy Carpark, Dmitri the Imposter et al.

    Should I have added “clapped out bon vivant” to that list, Andy?

    Love to JJB etc.

  18. This is from the Telegraph about a MAN pretending he’s really a woman being put into a woman’s prison.
    And then assaults them.
    Just read this nonsense and it’s from a national newspaper.
    But at a previous hearing, prosecutor, Charlotte Dangerfield told Leeds Magistrates’ Court that she had carried out the first offence within days of arriving at the prison.
    The prosecutor said White had struck up a relationship with a fellow inmate which had quickly become inappropriate.
    She explained: “The defendant would stand very close to her, touch her arm and wink at her. Her penis was erect and sticking out of the top of her trousers.”
    His penis not hers.
    Jesus Christ this is utter madnessI am absolutely sick of this nonsense, for it to be happening under an allegedly conservative government makes it even worse.
    HE is not a woman, HE has a penis, it sticks out the top of HIS trousers.
    He is taking the p1$$ or has mental problems the one thing that is certain is HE is not a woman.

    Thanks for confirming that, I thought as much.

  26. We have the great one down here. And our loopy left are trying to blame Nigel for the abuse of the Abo’s.

    The fact he is facing extreme left nuts here proves the argument that the response to the populist growth is an organised global matter. Soros et al are spending their money anywhere the populist head pops up. They must be frightened shitless at the thought of a few million Crocodile Dundees throwing their dummies out of the pram. Just have a look what at how many Ockers turned up for the last two shindigs as a % of population.

    It’s nice here and they don’t seem to appreciate having to come and sort other peoples shit out.

  27. Sunday is not Sunday without Rod Liddle:

    “They are finally making the act of upskirting illegal, punishable by up to two years in prison. So, that’s my retractable selfie stick going on eBay, then. It cost £34.99 and I doubt I’ll get more than a fiver for it. And hours of what I thought harmless pleasure denied — the strange and yet fascinating stuff I’ve seen up there. My only recourse is to move to Newcastle, where you don’t need to upskirt because the skirts are all pretty much up anyway, even in mid-January, the private parts blue with cold. Maybe they’ll make Newcastle illegal next.

    Or perhaps I should persist with the selfie stick in the hope that my court appearance will become a test case. Because the government is also pretty gung-ho for supporting Labour MP Stella Creasy’s demand that misogyny be made a “hate crime”.

    Campaigners insist no new offences are envisaged under this new law, merely that evidence of misogyny would be considered an aggravating factor in a crime already on the statute book. Such as upskirting.

    You did this, Mr Liddle, because you harbour a hatred for women, I would suggest.” And my reply: “No, I did it because I am a sad, voyeuristic pervert. I actually like women very much, as you should know if you’ve checked through the many images in my computer files, especially the Ukrainian ones.” But they will redefine hatred as well, almost as its opposite. Increasingly, these days, words are stripped of their real meanings and are marshalled to support the progressive agenda.

    I can see why the campaigners think misogyny should be a hate crime. In the past 15 years women have slipped so far down the Top Trumps Table of Imagined Victimhood that they have almost disappeared from view. Outflanked by the transgender lobby, the gay lobby, the race lobby and even those who think being in possession of a quiet misgiving about Islam counts as a hate crime. No wonder they’re narked: they want their share of the lavishly iced victimhood cake. And all the more so because in many cases their claims of victimhood are not, like most of the others, imagined. There is still discrimination against women — less than was once the case, but still there nonetheless. In the abuse of power by foul men, in domestic violence, in rape, in the workplace. So you can appreciate the chagrin.

    But it is surely wrong, for three reasons. First, as the campaigners accept, no new offences are envisaged. In other words, there’s no need for the law: everything is covered, unless we plan to prosecute people for writing stuff about women to which the progressives take exception. Such as my contention that the minuscule number of women studying physics at degree level is not because of conditioning or sexism, but because a much smaller proportion of women are adept at the subject, despite 30 years of expensive programmes to redress the balance. Is that misogyny on my part? What if it’s true?

    Second, does this proposed law not place women back in that berth from which they have struggled to escape for decades — that of the perennial victim, the weaker sex, dependent on legislation to protect them from horrible men? I thought we’d got past that stage.

    And the final point (for me, the clincher): all anti-hate legislation is absurd and fascistic. You should not try to police people’s minds. If I punch someone for being black, it is no worse than if I punched someone for being an estate agent, a supporter of Leeds United or a bearded hipster running a pop-up bistro that serves avocado on toast for £8.99. The outcome is the same and my supposed hatred matters not one jot. All laws that try to police the mind are necessarily subjective, virtually unprovable and an intrusion of the state into our souls. And now — hey, I’ve just had an offer on that selfie stick. A tenner. What’s he going to use it for? Shall I ask?“

  28. Or Speccie

    “I remember the moon landing very well. I was nine years old. I can remember too my sense of outrage and disillusion. ‘This is a blatant violation of the moon’s dignity and sovereignty,’ I told my parents, as the astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong attempted to secure the US flag to the lunar surface. ‘An act of imperialistic, Zionist barbarism and a statement of intent from the American government that it intends to export its white supremacy throughout the known galaxy. You will note that no people of colour were chosen as astronauts, nor women, nor people with fibromyalgia.’

    A day or two later, when I had been let out of my bedroom, I informed them that the whole thing had not actually taken place, but was a sham filmed on a Hollywood lot for the benefit of Nasa, the industrial–military complex and Mossad. ‘Did you see the angles of the shadows cast by the astronauts? Klieg lights, you credulous fools.’ So young, and yet so woke.

    Hollywood has just made another film about that moon landing and it seems to have been scripted by someone with a very similar mindset to the one I had then. It could not be otherwise, I suppose, these days. First Man purports to be a biopic of the aforementioned Armstrong, but omits entirely the second most important thing he ever did. There is footage of him landing on the moon, with Aldrin, but the film makers quite deliberately omitted to show the flag being planted on the dusty surface. This was because, according to one of the cretinous stars of the film, Ryan Gosling, the moon landings were not about American triumphalism, but something that was good for the whole of humanity. And so they excised the bit about the flag, including showing the astronauts saluting the flag, because it did not fit in with their political agenda and, being liberals, they think that what actually happened, i.e. history, isn’t important and if it offends them it can be rewritten or simply expunged.

    Aside from anything else, this is cheating the moviegoers. My guess is that people who want to watch something about one of the US’s greatest triumphs probably possess a scintilla or two of patriotism. They may be the kind of people who would have enjoyed the film made of Tom Wolfe’s fabulous book The Right Stuff, which covered similar territory (and with a rather better cast, not least Ed Harris and Sam Shepard). Gosling and co clearly want the large audience which would be attracted by such a project, but wish to gloss over the inconvenient politics of the time and the political feelings of the audience.

    In truth, the moonshot was quintessentially about American triumphalism and almost nothing else — the good of humanity was not a consideration, except insofar as more successful rocket technology at last put the US ahead of the Soviet Union, behind which repulsive country it had lagged alarmingly, well into the 1960s. It was two fingers to the Russkies and a reminder to the rest of the world that the US was the greatest country on earth. In short, as President Kennedy knew, it was the only thing which could trump Sputnik, Laika and Yuri Gagarin. It won the space race.

    And forgive me, because now I’ve just used that word: Trump. That’s also somewhere in the mix, somewhere lurking in the muddled, murky potage these asinine liberals call a world view. It’s bad enough to be patriotic at the best of times, but to do so when that fascist is waving the Stars and Stripes around would be unconscionable. Meanwhile, the actual benefit to ‘humankind’ as a consequence of the moon landings was ephemeral, fleeting and slight. Nonstick frying pans, anyone?

    We are in the Tyranny of Now. A time when the liberals in Hollywood or at the BBC or on our university campuses will rewrite or eradicate history according to their own manifestos, and where everything that happened in the past is subject to a Manichaean divide. In a film about slavery, the black people will be uniquely good, the whites uniquely bad, conveniently avoiding the issue that black Africans instigated the slave trade and continued it long after we’d been pricked by our honky consciences. Attempt to suggest that not everything that came from colonialism was uniformly bad, as one Oxford professor did recently, and you will be subjected to a moronic inferno of howled abuse — even though, palpably, nothing is quite so black and white as the liberals see it.

    The Tyranny of Now, with its weird non-sequiturs: it is perfectly OK for a man to identify as a woman, but once his breasts have been stapled on don’t — for God’s sake — allow him to wear a kimono, because that would be cultural appropriation. It is cultural appropriation for supermarkets to sell curries, but not cultural appropriation for your local Chinese restaurant to offer pie and chips. Perhaps we in the West should cavil if the rest of the world embraces democracy, sanitation, an independent judicial system, tolerance, gender equality, decent table manners and an appreciation of fine literature, art and music — cultural appropriation! Fortunately, or otherwise, most of the rest of the world seems to have resisted these temptations so far.

    More of these non-sequiturs, drawn from the Tyranny of Now. It is fine — no, more than fine, absolutely marvellous — for the new version of the BBC’s Daily Politics to kick off with six women on the panel and not a solitary man. The reverse would be unthinkable, wouldn’t it? Why is one form of gender imbalance worse than another? Why do we not worry about the scarcity of male speech therapists, but agonise over the lack of women heart surgeons?

    Buzz Aldrin responded to the film I mention above by tweeting a photograph of himself saluting the American flag on the moon. ‘Proud to be an American,’ he said. Oh, you dinosaur. Die quickly, be gone.“

  29. And having finished that go on to Mr Boot:

    “What price principles? Honour? More appropriate, what price sovereignty?

    These questions naturally come up whenever the word ‘Brexit’ is mentioned in my presence.

    Now I seldom feel I’m enunciating majority opinion, but in this case I’m sure just about everybody in Britain will agree with me: we’ve had it up to here with all the incessant bickering, wrangling and squabbling about Brexit.

    And we’re sick of all that talk about a whole raft of ‘deals’ covering every possible permutation, each propped up by sky-high columns of figures proving that either we’ll end up eating house pets post-Brexit or become rich beyond our wettest dreams.

    Such disciplines as history, political science, philosophy, constitutional law have all fallen by the wayside. Accountancy reigns supreme: the whole issue has been reduced to a balance sheet, with the bottom line pointing one way or the other.

    Enter the greatest adman who has ever lived, Bill Bernbach, who came up with the maxim in the title above. It’s fully applicable to the situation at hand.

    Brexit may make us richer or poorer, no one knows for sure. Actually, now we’re on the subject, I suspect we’ll suffer a bit, for the first few years at any rate.

    The EU is bloody-minded enough to cut off its economic nose to please its political face. That vile setup is guaranteed to try to punish Britain even at a huge cost to itself, pour encourager les autres, as Napoleon I said and Napoleon IV, aka Manny Macron, doubtless keeps repeating.

    If Britain leaves the EU painlessly and profitably, those dominoes will start falling one after another. And they’ll continue to do so until that awful contrivance is reduced to a single Franco-German state, with Angie as its Queen and Manny as her consort (he fancies older women).

    The readjustment of our trading patterns will take a few years, and we may be worse off in the interim. Then again we may not – if I could predict economic trends, I’d be living in the house currently occupied by Roman Abramovich (not that he acquired it thanks to his economic prescience – Google ‘organised crime’ for details).

    My point, oft-repeated, is that the decision to regain our sovereignty and to have all our laws passed by our own Parliament should have nothing to do with money. Nothing. Nil. Zilch.

    Sovereignty is neither an incremental nor a relative concept. A great nation can’t be almost sovereign or partially sovereign. It can be either sovereign or subjugated.

    If the choice between the two is made on the basis of pounds and pence, we might as well not bother.

    For, if that’s all it boils down to, we’re already subjugated in perpetuity, Brexit or no Brexit. We’re for ever enslaved morally and intellectually – we’ve already done an Esau and sold our political soul for the mess of rancid EU potage.

    A rich slave who fears becoming a poor free man, remains a slave in either case.

    This reminds me of the story of a bear born and raised captive in a cage 10 feet square. For years he moved back and forth within that space, 10 feet this way, 10 feet that.

    Then he was set free, and what do you know? He continued to pace the same 10 feet back and forth. The cage wasn’t around his body; it was in his mind.

    How could any Englishman attach his signature to the Maastricht Treaty? A document that in one fell swoop prostituted Britain’s constitution and debased the memory of the millions who gave their lives defending their country’s independence over two millennia? I don’t know; I’ve only lived here for 30 years.

    But I do know that Brexit is an attempt to undo the constitutional catastrophe created by one flourish of John Major’s pen. It’s the only honest thing to do and – for those who understand the vital significance of the British constitution for the British nation – the only intelligent thing.

    Yet what do we do? We argue whether acting on sound moral and intellectual principles will make us a few pounds richer or poorer.

    Call me an incurable optimist (one charge that’s seldom levelled at me), but I don’t believe the British have become completely corrupt. Partially corrupt, for sure. But not completely.

    I don’t believe my countrymen have calculators for brains and spreadsheets for hearts.

    The thought that our politicians have neither hearts nor brains comes more easily. But I still believe the nation has enough spunk left to force our spivocrats into acting with a modicum of decency.

    And the upshot of it all? Simple. The only good deal is summary exit with no deal – and damn the torpedoes.”

  30. And Alexander on the Maybot:

    “It has been proved beyond any doubt that the Novichok attack on British soil was perpetrated by two GRU agents, whose identity, if not real names, has been established.

    Britain now holds the distinction of being the only Western power targeted for both nuclear (2006 polonium murder of Litvinenko) and chemical attacks on its citizens.

    Yesterday Theresa May delivered a scathing attack on Putin’s junta, hinting at retaliation, probably involving cyber warfare, further sanctions and travel bans. However, her attack wasn’t scathing enough.

    While saying that the authorisation for the crime had to come from the highest tiers of the GRU, Mrs May stopped short of naming Putin himself as the culprit.

    Security Minister Ben Wallace tried to fill that blank, or rather pretended to. Asked if Putin himself bears responsibility for the murders, he replied: “Ultimately he does, insofar as he is president of the Russian Federation and it is his government that controls, funds and directs the military intelligence…”

    This sounds as if he actually said something, whereas in fact he said nothing at all. Nicely done, Ben. That’s the stuff political success is made of.

    Yes, in some oblique way a dictator is responsible for all crimes committed on his watch. This much goes without saying, meaning it didn’t have to be said.

    In fact, Mr Wallace fudged the issue as much as Mrs May did. Putin is responsible for the nuclear and chemical attacks on British subjects on British soil not in some oblique way, but in a most direct one. He was the one who issued the orders.

    Anyone even remotely familiar with the chain of command in Russia will know that no GRU officer, no matter how high up, has the authority to initiate an action with far-reaching geopolitical ramifications.

    Such an order in today’s Russia can only come from the Botox Boy, who sits at the top of what he calls ‘the vertical of power’. Russia’s power structure has eschewed horizontality from time immemorial, so Putin continues a fine tradition there.

    I realise that diplomatic protocol doesn’t encourage referring to the leader of a foreign state as a murderer. Yet this protocol isn’t always followed, and at times it’s more honoured in the breach than the observance.

    Assorted US presidents and British prime ministers haven’t shied away from describing in such an uncomplimentary way Messrs Saddam, Gaddafi, Assad – and even Erdoğan, president of a country that happens to be a NATO member.

    What has Putin done to deserve a special dispensation? He, after all, combines in his person a KGB thug and a global gangster, and he leads a state blended out of the same ingredients, one that’s demonstrably hostile and threatening to the West.

    Of course the aforementioned gentlemen didn’t possess nuclear weapons, and Putin does. But refusing to point an accusing finger at him for that reason would brand our leaders as cowards and flat track bullies. Surely they can’t be such awful things?

    Even articles calling for stiff measures against Russian gangsters who live, or keep their loot, in Britain have to dilute the message with the kind of disclaimers that bespeak ignorance.

    A piece in yesterday’s Times, for example, says that not all Russian money sitting in London banks is ill-gotten gains, though much of it is. Fair enough, a Russian computer programmer who works in London and keeps a few thousand in a NatWest current account is no mobster.

    But if we’re talking about millions, never mind billions, such amounts can’t be made in Russia without at least passive collaboration with the ruling mafia. And typically the collaboration is far from passive – those Russian billionaires are to a man Mafiosi themselves.

    Choosing targets for financial sanctions, such as the impounding, freezing or – my personal preference – confiscating of Russian assets is thus a no-brainer. It’s like firing a sawn-off shotgun point blank at a flock of pigeons pecking breadcrumbs in Trafalgar Square: you can’t miss.

    Some pundits do say all the right things, but one questions their moral right to say them. Dr Mark Almond of Oxford is one such man.

    In today’s Mail he bemoans that Putin’s strategy seems to be working in that he has already succeeded in recruiting allies among EU members:

    “Last month, he was a guest at the Austrian foreign minister’s wedding, and Vienna’s Right-wing government is one of the loudest voices in the EU clamouring for improving relations with Moscow.

    “In Italy, the new government is led by a critic of sanctions against Russia, so imposing new ones is unlikely to win Rome’s support.”

    All true. But Dr Almond forgot to mention that his is another loud voice “clamouring for improving relations with Moscow”. The difference between him and those European countries is that he does so not in the national media but on RT, Putin’s propaganda channel, where he’s a frequent guest.

    That’s like a British academic c. 1938 writing articles in Julius Streicher’s Der Stürmer. No honest man, especially one who seems to know what’s what in Putin’s Russia, would ever agree to take RT’s rouble. If such an offer were made, he’d reject it indignantly and then wash his hands afterwards.

    I happen to know Dr Almond: in 1995 we met in Minsk, where we and a few others were observers at the Byelorussian election.

    Over what the Russians call “a shot of tea”, I said that all those glasnosts and perestroikas hadn’t changed anything in Russia. They were nothing but window-dressing on a transfer of power from the Party to the KGB.

    Dr Almond was horrified. “We aren’t allowed to say that,” he said with a quiver. “The most we can get away with is regret that the march of democracy in Russia is slightly slower than expected.”

    That was opportunism, nowadays a necessary job qualification for academic success in Britain and elsewhere in the West. But being a willing tool of what in effect is enemy propaganda is much worse, as William Joyce, ‘Lord Haw-Haw’, could have testified.

    One can only ask how many more crimes Putin has to commit before his ‘useful idiots’ in the West stop being useful. Would an airborne Spetsnaz landing in Kent do the trick?”

  31. And at last the Sunday Times decides to stick it to the one described by Baron as the blond inseminator:

    “At 4,000 words, a “war book” prepared by Downing Street aides on Boris Johnson was not short on material that could scupper his chances of becoming Tory leader:

    Circa 2001-05
    Alleged by Andrew Gimson in his biography of Johnson: “It was said that Boris took the Spectator’s bridge columnist out to lunch in order to sack her, but slept with her instead.”

    August 29, 2004
    Mail on Sunday diary publishes piece on Johnson and Ruzwana Bashir, the then 20-year-old president of the Oxford Union: “I am informed that a special friendship is blossoming between the magazine’s [The Spectator’s] editor, Boris Johnson, and Ruzwana Bashir, the stunning president of the Oxford Union.”

    November 7, 2004
    Sunday Mirror breaks story about the socialite Petronella Wyatt aborting Johnson’s child; the story contained claims that Johnson had said he would not support the child, and was refusing to pay medical bills from the termination [which he denied]. In a series of articles following the story, Johnson is accused of lying over the affair to journalists and has to resign post.

    April 2, 2006
    News of the World runs a story of Johnson having an affair with journalist/policy specialist Anna Fazackerley, once visiting her and Wyatt on the same night.

    July 2010
    Story comes out in the Daily Mirror alleging that Johnson is father of love child with “wealthy socialite and art consultant Helen Macintyre”.

    “I tried it at university and I remember it vividly. And it achieved no pharmacological, psychotropic or any other effect on me whatsoever.”

    “I think I was once given cocaine but I sneezed and so it did not go up my nose. In fact, I may have been doing icing sugar.”

    EUROPE — SPRING 1989
    Boris Johnson becomes Brussels correspondent at The Daily Telegraph, where he gains a reputation for playing fast and loose with the facts.

    “When they discovered asbestos in The Berlaymont [the European Commission HQ] Boris wrote a colourful story that teams of sappers were going to mine the building and blow it up,” recalls a long-suffering EU official. “The story really took off. Another paper made its poor correspondent ring up to see whether they could press the trigger for the dynamite, but it just wasn’t true.”

    Former Tory leader Lord Howard on Johnson’s time as party vice-chairman 2003-4
    “The fact is that he didn’t put much time in. With Boris, there is this issue with effort . . . Here was a Conservative who was much more popular than anyone else in the party and much better known. If he had contributed those attributes to campaigning for the Conservative Party, you might assume that it would be successful. But he didn’t.”

    Eric Anderson, his former headmaster at Eton
    “They [the students] were doing some scenes from Richard III with Boris as the king. He hadn’t had time to learn the lines, so had pasted them up behind various pillars. The whole performance consisted of him running from one side of the stage to the other and failing to read it properly.”

    A ‘former colleague, a very senior man’ in journalism
    “If you just see him cracking jokes on Have I Got News For You, you think he’s a great bloke. If you’ve worked with him or relied on him, it’s a different matter.”

    Tory backbencher
    “I was staggered at his economic ignorance . . . There’s a laziness there.”

    Andrew Gimson, Johnson’s biographer
    Referring to Johnson’s inability to manage his finances properly: “His financial affairs were in total confusion. Unpaid parking tickets would increase in cost to £800 and bailiffs were about to break in.”

    Sarah Helm, a journalist colleague of Johnson in Brussels
    “I remember developing an instinctive feel that Boris was a complete charlatan.”

    On China
    “China is becoming in our imaginations the fashionable new dread, the incubator of strange diseases, a vast polluted landscape of Victorian factories where coolies sit in expectorating rows, nourished on nothing but rice and the spleens of pangolins.”

    On former colonial countries
    “The Queen has come to love the Commonwealth, partly because it supplies her with regular cheering crowds of flag-waving piccaninnies.”

    “News reaches us, perhaps brought into a cleft stick by some piccaninny from the steaming Mato Grosso.”

    On Africa
    “The continent may be a blot, but it is not a blot upon our conscience. The problem is not that we were once in charge, but that we are not in charge any more.”

    On Portsmouth
    “Full of drugs, obesity, underachievement and Labour MPs.”

    On Papua New Guinea
    “For 10 years, we in the Tory party have became used to Papua New Guinea-style orgies of cannibalism and chief-killing; and so it is with a happy amazement that we watch as the madness engulfs the Labour Party.”

    On watching television
    “They [the public] could be learning the piano. They could be knocking out a play. Instead, they sit like the prisoners in Plato’s cave, watching the flickering images before them and mistaking them for reality. That is the shocker: not that people are so foolish as to appear on TV, but that people are so idle as to watch it.”

    How much egg can you you get to fit on the face of a British government?:

    “Britain Should Be In The Dock Over Skripal Saga, Not Russia:

    “…No verifiable evidence is ever presented, just more lurid innuendo and more refusal by the British authorities to abide by any due process and international norms of diplomacy. It is all scurrilous sound and fury aimed at smearing Russia….”

    Furthermore, there are strong suggestions that the British government , or at least its “security agencies” have been (still are?) collaborating with its counterparts in the USA to bring down the United States government. This is more than egg on the face, this is shit on the face of our worthies at GCHQ, though they are of course all honourable men –
    O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts,
    And men have lost their reason.

    and with thanks to ECm, September 8th.

    An excellent interview despite the Interrupter.

    Here’s Bannon with Laura Ingraham (starts about 0.55 in) on his new film, Trump at War (not on at a cinema near me by the way…).

  42. Trump At War – the trailer

  43. The Minor Drag – or possibly Harlem Fuss

    Btw the second version, with perhaps the world’s smallest adult trumpeter, is also well worth it.

  44. Noa, September 11th, 2018 – 18:20

    Aye, Lad, I think that Tracey Ullman nailed it in that sketch.

    Listen to this and weep…

    Mind you, I doubt very much whether the PCC in Lancastrianland is much better.

    Before the first PCCs were elected in 2012 a few us CHWallsters warned that they were a bad very idea. Within a very short timespan these structures that accommodate the political placemen of today, arguably benign ineffectual clueless tossers, could easily be become the command structures of tomorrow’s regional gestapo, run by some very, very unpleasant people indeed.

  45. EC
    Long serving Labour apparatchik Clive Grunshaw is the PCC here in Lancashireistan since Comrade Cameron’s Pink Tories created their new range of Leibstandartenfuhreren.
    Shrugging off an expenses fraud investigation finding him guilty of double claiming he has stormed on relentlessly, creating a 21 strong ‘diverse’ personal burocracy at a cost of £1Million per year whilst proudly presiding over an increase in ‘hate’ crime creation in conjunction with the local matching of the national collapse in real crime detection and prevention.
    All Hail our glorious comrade Grunshaw!

  46. For those interested in Crime and its popularisation as a career option in the UK the Civitas website has an excellent range of free to download briefing notes and publications.

  47. A final thought, in so far as they haven’t been hidden and distorted the child sex offenders rate is higher in Lancashireistan than in South Yorkshire, the spiritual home of the Muslim sex pimp gangs.
    On the plus side there was a recent arrest in the Charlene Downes kebab murder. After the original arrestee received half a million Pounds compensation for false arrest. Read the case and weep.

  48. Marshal Roberts 3rd September 11.15
    I’ve always appreciated a good sense of humour and the idea of getting into a nuclear war with Russia over Estonia provided a deep and prolonged bout of laughter.
    Boot, the ex Russian and self proclaimed British patriot, is very happy to fight Putin with British blood and treasure.
    Sadly there are enough idiots in Parliament who have if the ever knew, have forgotten the disastrous consequences arising in 1939 from giving unconditional support and credence to his venomous Beckian style inanites.

  49. Max Butt, the American deep state soviet-style apparatchik, whom CNN is now calling its ‘Global Analyst’, was on Consigliere Cuomo’s show blaming the devastation of Puerto Rico by a hurricane last year on President Trump’s supposed character flaws.

    CNN appears to have persuaded him to get a decent tailor if he’s going to take their shilling, and the fact that he is as bald and angry as the Mekon of the Treens is not of course a factor that us Wallies take into consideration when judging CIA lackeys of the New World Order.

  50. I feel sure that the mainstream media will completely ignore this, so the more we can draw public attention to it the better –

  51. Herbert 1045

    “They actually want to convict him again, maybe to throw him back in prison again.”

    He forgot “throw away the key”.

  52. Britain is being dragged into becoming a brothel in perpetuity for barbarians from the Third World.

    Must that be your own daughters’ futures?

    Tommy Robinson bravely tells the truth about it, & for this the Government is trying to get him killed.

    Support & protect Tommy!

  53. Herbert Thornton @ o1:13


    Once President Trump and his allies have destroyed the last globalist base of mercenary “rebels” in Idlib, many Syrian refugees, illegal and legalised islamic immigrants and terrorist sleeper cells will want to return to Syria which they were bribed to leave when the globalist pipers called the tune in that devastated part of the moslem world.

    Numbers of economic opportunists from other islamic countries in the Middle East will also be ready to return home once their globalist subsidies are eliminated and/or the devastation of their countries caused by nihilist globalist policies and reckless intervention by American and other governments pre-2017.

    As a minimum, and as part of ridding England of Deep State operatives, one would like to see an initiative somewhere within the political class to encourage this Great Homecoming once the Iranian question has been settled following the clearance of Idlib. Truth and Reconciliation Committees can be established to ease the pain for entrenched globalists in the political class who would otherwise be opposed to this and for those sent here from Syria and other largely moslem countries with a terrorist or colonial agenda, once governments across North Africa have been stabilised, their economies restored to a sound footing, and fear of further deliberately destabilising , anarchic interventions by foreign military forces is assuaged.

    It will require some vigorous swamp drainage projects, but a start should be made if we want to restore the country. Perhaps funding the Great Homecoming could become a popular National Lottery project.

    Where’s our gold…? Where indeed? I imagine the Chicoms now have it safely tucked away.. What was the price he gave it away at? Two hundred and something US dollars an ounce. That was in the day when the one-eyed man was king….

  62. Policing in Britain has an interesting history because before the time of Sir Robert Peel it scarcely existed, and the very idea of having an organised Police Force was viewed with suspicion –

    Here are a few lines from the foregoing –

    “The first professional police force in the UK, funded by local taxation, was set up in Glasgow in 1800……
    It was the start of a campaign to improve public law. Reform, however, was slow as there was distrust of the police at all levels………. Many people were concerned about the idea of a uniformed force and feared that the police would be used to arrest opponents of the government, stop protests and destroy free speech.”

    Were their fears justified? They certainly were – in fact things are now far worse than they can ever have imagined –

  63. Asked if the Chequers plan was permanent, Mr Gove, who was a leading figure in the Leave campaign, said: “Yes, but there’s one critical thing, a future prime minister could always choose to alter the relationship between Britain and the European Union.
    “But the Chequers approach is the right one for now because we have got to make sure that we respect that vote and take advantage of the opportunities of being outside the European Union.”

    Gove is a canny man who rarely gets things wrong.

    I suspect Frank would rather avoid commenting because he has a very strong sense of loyalty to the Police.

    I don’t know about the Police in general, but the top brass in the South Yorkshire Police certainly don’t deserve his loyalty.

  76. A certain Sara Thornton is now head of the National Police Chiefs Council. This appears to have replaced NACPO (National Association of Chief Police Officers)after the government found it wanting.
    She is,like Cressada Dick, a female (of sorts).She was Chief Constable of Thames Valley when that force missed /ignored the White-Slave Trade going on there.
    She is also has a CBE and a QPM ; although what she did to earn them I do not know.I doubt it was for facing down armed criminals.
    The Police Chiefs these days go around in dress uniforms like South American generals.

    Yes, that was by far the most disturbing thing to hit the TV screens in ages.

  79. This is something completely different from the usual menu of this site, but you may find it useful (unless you’re aware of it, which Baron wasn’t).

    It may happen you lose your mobile. To prevent anyone using it again this is what you do before the loss happens.

    Dial (as if you were dialling a normal number) *#06# and a 15 digit number will appear (it’s the IMEI or International Mobile Equipment Identity number). Right it down somewhere safe. If you lose your mobile tell your service operator, your number will be blocked, the thief will not be able to either use it or sell it. Make sure that you do not pass the number to anyone else. If someone were to offer you a mobile at a bargain price ask for the IMEI number of the gadget. If the seller won;t furnish it, stay away from the deal, the mobile is likely stolen.

    If you want more on (say) the NSA ability to track you using the IMEI number, google for it.

  83. Herbert Thornton, September 20th, 2018 – 00:13

    Indeed, it is a tad ironic that their harbingers, the Green Papers, are called “Green” when they are printed, for the most part, on dead trees.

    I’m surprised that the BAME & LGBTIQWERTY communities have thus far remained silent and unoffended regarding the lack of diversity in paper colours chosen for government documents, when there is a whole rainbow to choose from.

    NB. It was only last year when UK Acts of Parliament ceased to be printed on calf skin (vellum) That’s progress for you! Imagine the outcry from the animal rights mob if they’d switched to printing on cat skins! It is a far cheaper, and more widely available alternative, with the added benefit that the national archives would be much easier to browse if they were printed in Tabbyloid format.

    Sep 19 2018 17:07:38 (EST)
    How about a nice game of chess?
    IG Horowitz (“Justice” Dept) speech – ‘whistleblowers’
    “Since 2015, he has simultaneously served as the Chair of the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE), an organization comprised of all 73 federal Inspectors General.”
    Think yesterday.
    What was learned?
    Robert Storch confirmed NSA IG?
    First presidentially-appointed IG for NSA?
    Dept of “Justice” [background] important?
    Federal prosecutor in N. District of NY [background] important?
    “Prior to joining NSA, Mr. Storch served in several positions at the Department of Justice’s OIG, including as Senior Counsel to the IG and Acting Deputy IG prior to his 2015 appointment as Deputy IG. He also served as chairman of the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) Whistleblower Ombudsman Working Group. The Whistleblower Ombudsperson program he helped establish is widely seen as a leader in the field.”
    “Earlier in his career, Mr. Storch also worked as a federal prosecutor in the Northern District of New York, most recently serving as the Deputy Criminal Chief and Counsel to the U.S. Attorney. He was also posted overseas for two years as a Department of Justice Resident Legal Advisor in Ukraine.”
    “The CIGIE is comprised of all Inspectors General whose offices are established under section 2 or section 8G of the Inspector General Act of 1978 (5 U.S.C. App.), those that are Presidentially-appointed/Senate Confirmed and those that are appointed by agency heads (designated federal entities).”
    How might this benefit ‘possible’ ongoing investigations across inter-intra federal agencies?
    NSA been pushed since the beginning?
    Logical thinking.
    The “Experts”
    But… SESSIONS should appoint a 2nd SC in DC aka THE CORRUPT SWAMP
    But… SESSIONS should appoint a 2nd SC in DC aka THE CORRUPT SWAMP [team of less than 20 typically] & wait 2-4 years [take a gamble]
    But… SESSIONS should appoint a 2nd SC in DC aka THE CORRUPT SWAMP because unlike the CLINTON EMAIL CORRUPT CASE [as demonstrated by the FBI/DOJ people FIRED/REMOVED] this will be conducted faithfully and honestly [like MUELLER]
    But… HUBER has not ‘directly’ interviewed several witnesses therefore the appointment of HUBER by SESSIONS [and therefore the IG] is not genuine
    But… SESSIONS & HUBER are following standard DOJ open/ongoing investigation policy by not discussing [making public] so therefore nothing must be happening [FIRE SESSIONS!]
    But… HUBER [ability to prosecute + empanel a grand jury outside of DC [90%+ voted HRC (2016)], who already began the investigation(s) late last year w/ assigned team of 470 investigators (attorneys) + IG + legal jurisdiction across all 50 states, is not a ‘special counsel’ so therefore nothing is being done
    But… POTUS is attacking SESSIONS via TWITTER so therefore he is not working on behalf of the people’s interest (or POTUS’) [D’s/LEFT LOVE/TRUST SESSIONS!]
    But… interestingly, if nothing is being done behind the scenes, why are so many FBI & DOJ senior officials being FIRED and/or REMOVED from their respective positions of power? Who is AG? Who must sign off on each removal? DOJ in charge of FBI?
    But… interestingly, if nothing is being done behind the scenes, why are there 50,000+ sealed indictments across the US [what % = USA v. X?]? Coincidence vs. HUBER start?
    But… interestingly, if nothing is being done behind the scenes, why are many ‘powerful’ CEOs, members of Congress/ Senate, resigning? Coincidence? Example: Pre_POTUS did the SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE indicate wanting to leave politics?
    But… interestingly, if nothing is being done behind the scenes, why are human trafficking arrests SURGING?
    Nothing to See Here.

    Spot on, the slicing of the ‘affair’, and as Duran says ‘what’s to investigate?’ The whole charade smells of pure politicking, the great Tucker sums it up even better.

    The point Baron made on another blog was different. The hysterical coverage of the case tells you how much has the American democracy decomposed, it’s turned into a farce, a parody of what the Founding Fathers intended, a never ending clowning show that serves nobody except the interest of the partizan divisions of the governing elites, it certainly does nothing to for the millions of the plebs who, if they retain their sanity, must wonder who are the people governing them.

  88. Papageno and Papagena went to Saltzberg and the Queen of the Night and saliostro crapped all over them. Is it not time that time was called on this comedy and the men in suits sat Mother T down and told her in no uncertain terms to stop prating about and started seriously planning for a clean departure from the toxic EU, and having achieved that get shot of the bitch. I do not know why in hell she ever joined the Tories or why the dumb sods voted for her as the leader.

    Surely the men in suits, if they sit her down, will say “Job well done!”.

  91. Malfleur,
    Sadly Malfleur, I think your assessment is bang on the mark, the men in suits would congratulate her on a job well done, they chose well when putting her in place. Mother T has now served her purpose and she can now be safely disposed of, leaving we, the deplorables where we belong, in the crap. Democracy, ain’t it grand?

  92. A site you may have missed has the definitive proof the two Russians who were prancing around Salisbury on March 3-4 are the culprits.

    You may find few postings by Baron there, two of which didn;t make it. Amazing that.
    One was a joke, the other said in this charade, Novichok had never been anywhere in the public domain backed by an argument why not. Obviously, whoever runs the site couldn’t stand rational refutation of their slicing of the case.

  107. Politico: Tommy Robinson retrial: the charges

  108. Sunday Rod Liddle Day:

    “Abandon ship, Labour moderates. Corbyn’s Mersey ferry only goes left, left and left again.

    suppose it will be difficult for the “dirty Zionist pig” Luciana Berger to avoid attending the Labour Party conference in Liverpool this week, seeing as she is a local MP. (Well, for a while, anyway, until they’ve got rid of her.) So she’ll probably be forced into the same conference hall as some of the people who so lit up her Twitter feed — “dirty Zionist pig” being one of the pleasanter comments.

    There were also injunctions to clear off to Israel, calls for her “head on a spike” and much, much worse besides. This was prompted by her complaints about anti-semitism in the party, and so we might assume that these messages were not sent by the deranged neo-Nazi far right but by the deranged Stalinist far left — that is, the people who now both run the party and make up a large proportion of its activists.

    It is of course symbolic that the conference is being held in Liverpool. For a long while in the 1980s the Labour Party very much wished the city could be snipped off the map and towed to somewhere between Dogger Bank and Iceland. This was when the Trotskyite entryists Militant Tendency, led by that gobby Scouse chancer Derek “Degsy” Hatton, were running the place.

    Now people well to the left of Degsy are in charge of the entire party, and holding the conference there conveys a simple message: we have total control. Meanwhile, they are trying to hound Berger out of her Liverpool Wavertree seat, and across the Mersey in Birkenhead Frank Field has jumped ship, resigning the Labour whip, and will be deselected. And there is not a thing the moderates can do about it, because it simply isn’t their party any more.

    When Labour offered membership for £3, the nutters flooded in. Gavin Shuker, the MP for Luton South, has been given a vote of no confidence by his local party — something that will lead, further down the line, to deselection — and told me that whereas he had originally been selected by the votes of a couple of hundred party members, 1,200 people have since joined up and they want him out.

    The only recourse of the moderates is to bleat that Labour should be a “broad church”, even as one of Jeremy Corbyn’s henchmen has suggested that the church is a bit too broad. Well, it is true that Labour was a broad church; otherwise Corbyn and John McDonnell would not have been tolerated as MPs for so long during the decades when their views were considered berserk by the vast bulk of the party.

    But there is no sign now that Corbyn and Momentum wish for that tolerance to continue. And in a sense they are right. The Labour moderates, who may still make up the majority of the parliamentary Labour Party, have no allies, anywhere; nothing upon which to pin their hopes. Whereas during the early days of Corbyn’s succession they could point to parlous opinion poll ratings, even that crumb of comfort has blown away.

    The polls are neck and neck. The anti-semitic stuff does not play with voters north of Watford Gap; it has no resonance — any more than did the details of Corbyn and McDonnell simpering around IRA terrorists. When I talk to northern Labour voters and activists about it, they blame either the Tories or the people they loathe even more, the London press, for whipping it all up. In this they are either deluded or pig-ignorant — I can’t work out which.

    But in fairness to Corbyn et al, there is also still a strong resentment about the “bankers” we were forced to bail out 10 years ago who never got their comeuppance, allied to an even stronger resentment about social inequality and a divide between north and south that, perhaps rightly, northern voters feel Corbyn is more inclined to address than any previous Labour leader.

    This is the left-wing populism that could gain Labour an election win because — don’t forget — it also has the votes of the affluent, virtue-signalling, narcissistic, educated liberal elite down south. A sizeable constituency.

    So what should those moderate MPs do this week, as their seats are being tugged from beneath them? Leave, I think, is the answer: get the hell out — because this isn’t a temporary blip in Labour’s history. The party has changed for the foreseeable future. If it’s not Corbyn in charge, it will be some other mental case with an affection for Hamas and compulsory transgender surgery.

    And, as Shuker mused, there is also the moral issue. Should moderate MPs who survive deselection contribute to a Corbyn victory by representing a party that is unrecognisable as the one they joined? “No” would be the correct moral response. But for the moment, self-interest reigns: they will wait to see how nasty the party is going to be about taking away their jobs and make a decision later.

    Either way, they are lost. Marginalised in their own party, devoid of anyone gutsy enough to start a party of their own and deserted even by the voters, the one thing they thought they had on their side.

  109. And the latest Alexander Boot:

    “Can faith be merged with politics?

    Since the time of St Paul, Christians have struggled to find a blend between the truth revealed from heaven and the life lived on earth.

    The static eschatological perfection only achievable in the kingdom of God has had to be balanced against the dynamic human nature made imperfect by the Fall.

    This isn’t the Eastern balance of things similar in nature. It’s a balance coaxed out of a clash between opposites: perfection and imperfection, one of them divine and the other human, but both extreme.

    That’s why the balance is so precarious: one step too far in either direction, and a precipice beckons. One or the other end of the seesaw will shoot up violently, tossing either God or man into the gaping abyss.

    When it comes to specifically political life, the balancing act becomes even harder to perform, and Frank Field, MP, acknowledges this in the first paragraph of his article The Politics of Faith.

    Hard, however, doesn’t necessarily mean impossible. The task only becomes impossible when one brings to bear on it an incomplete set of intellectual tools.

    The most essential tool is the ability to understand and wield Christian thought, which alone can provide a bridge between the intricacies of faith and vicissitudes of politics.

    Without building that bridge spanning the gap between the two, a Christian politician will have to choose whether he wants to be a Christian or a politician. Both together won’t be on offer.

    Keeping the two separate is of course possible, but that reduces Christianity to the level of a hobby. It stops being the guiding light of a man’s life, which contradicts the essence of doctrine.

    Mr Field senses this conundrum and tries to find a way around it. As an honest man, he acknowledges the problem – without perhaps realising its full gravity.

    “I have never consciously thought of taking one course of action rather than another because I am a Christian…,” he writes. “I have never known, as those from the Evangelical wing of the Church do, a particular presence of Jesus.”

    My ordained friends would probably wince. For knowing “a particular presence of Jesus” isn’t the exclusive property of the Evangelicals. One could argue that this is partly what defines a Christian qua Christian.

    Another part is the ability to hold one’s action to the test of Christian thought, and this is what Mr Field self-admittedly lacks.

    Furthermore, he doesn’t seem to be aware that he’s missing something vital. That’s understandable: in his religious school he was “ given a sense of a way of life that, at its best, is an affair of the heart.”

    Not for a man trying to reconcile faith and politics, it isn’t.

    Mr Field refers to his Catholic faith, by which he means Anglo-Catholic, which isn’t quite the same thing. Yet his anti-intellectual view of Christianity is aggressively anti-Catholic and, dare I say it, dubiously Christian.

    Christianity is the most rational and, if you will, philosophical of all religions. It does start with an a priori statement of faith, but then so do most scientific discoveries.

    A scientist believes in the truth of his hypothesis, just like a Christian believes in the truth of his faith. Yet for both it’s only the starting point of a journey.

    They proceed to hold their hypothesis to a series of rigorous tests, both empirical and inductive. These either confirm or disprove the a priori statement.

    This analogy can’t be pushed too far. For a scientist who merely states his hypothesis and leaves it at that isn’t much of a scientist. A Christian, however, can remain true to his faith even if eschewing ratiocination altogether.

    He can indeed be guided by his heart only – but not to a perch where he’ll be capable of finding a link between his religion and something as devilishly (I use the word advisedly) complicated as politics.

    Alas, Mr Field confirms my lifelong conviction that a socialist can be a highly moral person or a highly intelligent one, but never both.

    For, whatever else socialism may be, it’s by definition materialist to a vulgar extreme. Rather than seeking heavenly equality of all before almighty God, it seeks earthly equality of all under the almighty state.

    The view of life at the foundations of socialism has no intellectual value whatsoever, for even the most strident materialists must see that there’s more to life than its physical shell (man’s mind for a start, along with the thought it produces).

    Someone who tries to defend an indefensible proposition either doesn’t understand that’s what it is, in which case he isn’t very bright, or defends it for ulterior reasons, in which case he isn’t very moral.

    Mr Field has been a socialist his whole life, albeit of a mild variety. That means he advocates a bit less of a bad thing, making him the Labourite the Tories love most.

    Everyone who knows him says he’s a good man, which he proved by resigning the Labour whip a couple of months ago and continuing as ‘an independent Labour MP’, whatever that means in our partisan politics.

    Mr Field was rightly appalled by Corbyn’s anti-Semitism, but his detractors will remind him that it was he who had originally nominated that evil Trotskyist nonentity for Labour leadership. And Corbyn never took pains to hide his true nature, did he?

    Throughout his career Mr Field has advocated some vaguely conservative policies and many downright socialist ones. The two were often mutually exclusive, giving the impression that in his politics too he’s mainly driven by his heart.

    Hence, by writing his article, Mr Field took on a burden his intellectual shoulders are too weak to bear. This he proved by proposing a view of Christianity that’s sufficiently ignorant to put even Archbishop Welby to shame:

    “The leitmotif running through the Old and into the New Testament is the concept of the Kingdom in this world… My revolutionary politics are about that commandment to seek and, by seeking, to help to build the Kingdom.”

    This is a staggeringly inept reading of Scripture, especially the New Testament. There isn’t a single word there that would lead one to believe that the kingdom in question is anything other than the metaphysical end to physical life.

    Jesus himself was unequivocal on the subject when he said: “My kingdom is not of this world.” But where is that kingdom, and when will it arrive?

    The Pharisees asked Jesus that very question, hoping to catch him out. His reply put them in their place: “The kingdom of God cometh not with observation. Neither shall they say, ‘Lo here!’ or, ‘Lo there!’ for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

    Many scholars regard the word ‘within’ as a mistranslation of the Greek entos. This word means not only ‘within’, but also ‘among’, ‘in the midst of’. Jesus told the Pharisees that he was the kingdom of God, which was therefore in their midst.

    He himself gave an indication of that meaning by telling the Pharisees what really was within them: “…your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.”

    Ravening and wickedness. Not much room left for the kingdom God there.

    Yet the kingdom can indeed be within a man, provided he lets it in. In either sense, Christ himself is that kingdom. Nowhere does he describe it as something that could be created by political means before the Second Coming.

    To use the concept as a basis of “revolutionary politics” ill-behoves a Christian. This smacks more of the traditional leftist larceny of treating Jesus as if he was a Labour MP from the Momentum faction, a sort of Che Guevara of Galilee.

    Mr Field knows better than that. As I say, by all accounts he’s a good man, and his attempt to find a link between his faith and his politics is a noble one.

    His is a failure of intellect, not character. But good men who know not what they do can do as much harm in politics as bad men who have no doubt of exactly what they’re doing.”

  121. Signed Executive Orders Reveal Trump is Planning Mass Arrests, Military Tribunals for Deep State Traitors Like Comey, Clinton and Obama — Update

    This is a National Emergency Special Report

    As the documents cited here clearly show, President Trump is planning to carry out mass arrests of deep state traitors, including Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, James Comey and even Barack Obama. This is fully covered, with accompanying documentation from the U.S. Federal Register, in the links and video below. (This author is fully supportive of this effort to save America and arrest the traitors.)

    The confirmation of Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court is the key to getting this done in a timely manner, which explains why the deranged Left is going to such outrageous extremes to fabricate false allegations against Kavanaugh and stage coordinated, well-funded protests to try to block the U.S. Senate from confirming him.

    Once Kavanaugh is on the court, it will add the necessary support for constitutional “emergency powers” that concentrate power in the executive branch of government (currently headed by President Trump) during times of war and national emergencies.

    FACT: The United States has been operating under a state of declared war since September, 2001, following the 9/11 attacks.

    FACT: The United States has been operating under a declared national emergency, signed by President Trump, since December 20, 2017 (see proof document, below).

    In this detailed video analysis, I lay out the evidence for President Trump’s plan to issue mass arrests of deep state traitors, then try them for treason under military tribunals. This is justified and lawful because the acts being committed against the United States of America by deep state traitors are acts of treason during a time of declared war. It is no coincidence that President Trump has deliberately funded the U.S. Pentagon with its most massive budgets ever conceived. This is because the Pentagon has agreed to run the military arrests of deep state traitors, under the direction of the Commander-In-Chief, President Trump.

    President Trump, I believe, has decided to go to bat for America and utterly destroy the anti-American deep state crime ring that has been working for years to destroy this nation and end its national sovereignty. This will be Trump’s legacy. He may not even run for re-election after 2020, since his entire plan to arrest the traitors and restore the rule of law in America will require him to step aside once certain goals are accomplished (see detailed explanation below).

    Note that in order to accomplish this, President Trump will need to declare temporary martial law. (UPDATE: See clarification about “martial law” in the video appended to the end of this article.) He will need our support during this time to maintain order and civility across the nation as the arrests and trials of deep state traitors are under way. We should all expect mass violence and chaos from the Left, which is following the “Rules for Radicals,” a blueprint for communist revolts and violent overthrow attempts of governments. See the documents for yourself… this is all posted on the U.S. Federal Register government website

    Here are the links to the documents cited in this comprehensive video:…

    For the record, I wholly support this effort to arrest and prosecute the thousands of deep state traitors who have become a cancer upon America. Were you aware that James Comey was a communist? John Brennan, of course, has remained a communist for his entire adult life, and Barack Obama was a radical Muslim who despised America and worked every day to undermine it through a variety of nefarious means (including allowing U.S. military encryption technology to be captured by Iran via the U.S. drone “GPS spoofing” incident).

    For starters, Barack Obama personally authorized the illegal “spygate” spying on Trump campaign officials. Barack Obama also allowed China to hack 21 million U.S. military personnel records, effectively dumping the entire U.S. Pentagon database into the hands of Communist China.

    For a full, detailed explanation of Obama’s treasonous crimes against America, watch this extremely important video from (it has been banned from YouTube for obvious reasons):…

    Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, John Brennan, Andrew McCabe, Loretta Lynch, Peter Strzok and a long list of other traitors have been conspiring for years to destroy America from within and see it replaced with a communist regime run by authoritarian globalists. Tech giants like Apple, Google and Facebook are all part of the plan, which is exactly why you’ve seen every one of them working closely with China to roll out authoritarian techno-tyranny infrastructure systems that plan to enslave every citizen of the world, making them powerless and obedient to a globalist technocracy that runs the “one world government.”

    As the ultimate cynic in all things political and in particular the wilful suiciding of Western Civilisation by its venal political ‘leaders’ , whose short-termism and ideological stupidity has resulted in our current chaos, I have been struggling to express hereupon my utter disgust at the travesty which is unfolding in the Senate of the USA during the confirmation hearings of Judge Kavanaugh for his nomination to the Supreme Court.
    Melanie, in the above link has rendered my unfinished essay redundant with her characteristic analytical brilliance. It is the final rude awakening of the American Dream. The rule of law is o’er: the presumption of innocence absent the proof of guilt is now defunct.

    I once opined that Las Vegas was the fundamental orifice of Capitalism. The American Government itself has now claimed that entitlement by a country mile. The emasculation of the West is now complete. No longer need to lock up your daughters – and too late to lock up your sons. Never before has there been such an overt gathering of the Ugly Club on universal display as the one I have witnessed during this travesty. Sickening!

    I cannot think of one anglo-phone ‘western’ “democracy” where the lunatics aren’t now running the asylum and holding the rest of us hostage.

    While the USA may well be having their “revolutionary moment”, the rest of us are having a “Hamlet Cigar” moment (you’ll remember the ads) as we sit, disenfranchised, disarmed, powerless, resigned to whatever comes. Gallows humour is all we’ve got left, and even that is probably illegal now!

    May the farce be with you!
    (because May isn’t)

  131. The rule of law is o’er? Someone may be counting unhatched eggs as chickens…

    “….After a lengthy response by Kavanaugh to the question of “where were you on 911”, the exchange continues as follows:

    [Graham] So when somebody says post 9/11 and that we’ve been at war and it’s called the war on terrorism do you generally agree with that concept?

    [Kavanaugh] I do Senator because Congress passed the authorization for use of military force which is still in effect and that was passed of course on September 14, 2001 three days later.

    Kavanaugh is here declaring that the “Authorization for the Use of Military Force” has the status of a declaration of war by the US Congress, thereby permitting the President to use the military in whatever way necessary against all those implicated in the 9/11 attack…..”

    Social Anthropologists probably have theories about it, but I doubt anybody really has the answer.

    The phenomenon that (I think) is especially interesting is that so many civilisations have collapsed and disappeared – while on the other hand the oldest civilisation that has had it’s ups and downs but that is still alive and vigorous is that of China.

    It would be rational to ask if this is because the genetic makeup of the Chinese is superior to that of other races, but even asking that question exposes the silly fallacy – prevalent among our own race – that there is no difference whatsoever between one race and another.

    I have not yet had my first cup of tea so only time and brain power for a couple of initial comments.

    I was of coursing talking about civilisation rather than power. And I am particularly interested how a state or ruling class which has power but is not civilised can morph into a ruling class which retains or obtains power but becomes civilised or develops a civilised sociey in which it is set.

    With regard to the Chinese Empire, arguably the most brilliant dynasty which ruled it, and expanded it, was the Qing. The Qing however were not Han and were not “Chinese”. They were foreigners from the north, Manchu. Part of their brilliance, and of the secret to their holding power, was their adopting in the eyes of the the Chinese and of the world, the outward forms of Chinese civilisation. At home in the Forbidden City (largely a Ming creation), the Manchu had their own language, spoken and written. This is an indication that race may not have been not the factor in the sense which you suggest.

    The Taiping Rebellion, which was essentially led by the Han, failed despite their intelligence. The Qing of course looked to the British to shore them up in this matter against the angry locals and, though not for long, to allow them to reassert their power.

    There is however certainly a view among the Chinese that dynasties may come and go but Chinese civilisation endures regardless of whoever temporarily has the smarts and the power.

    I like to think that the same can be said of English civilisation, despite the ultimate cynics. Let us hope that it is also a phoenix.

    Your posting brought to mind a piece headed “A long sigh” by Auberon Waugh that I read a good many years ago, probably in the 1980s or 1990s. I can’t find it on the Internet, but luckily I have a cutting of it from the newspaper that published it (likely the Telegraph). Here is an extract from it –

    “On my various visits to Australia – usually on business – I have always found it close to my idea of Heaven. ………..The greatest discovery to make in that strange country at the other end of the earth is that to the extent that the Australians have any history, they share it with us……. Australia remains another version of England – one day no doubt to become a greater and more powerful version, but with an English character and English eccentricities which do not survive in Canada or the United States…..”

    How far it’s still true I don’t know but I have the impression that the pestilence of insane political correctness is being resisted in Australia a lot more resolutely than here in Canada.

    If we ask what British interest was served – or is served, since the attempts are presumably continuing – by Queen in Parliament attempting to overthrow the administration of president Trump, we are led inevitably it seems to me to the state within the state in the United Kingdom. I would argue that preservation of the British Deep State is not in the interests of the British people.

    By extension I would argue that the abolition of the monarchy alone would not abolish the British branch of the Deep State, an international phenomenon. Corbyn must not be allowed to argue his corner for abolition if success would leave the British Deep State standing, especially with him in the premiership as its conduit for policy. The monarchy, at least in its older generations and operatives, appears to be a part of the Deep State – and this is without examining its participation along with other elements of British society in paedophile activities to which the Trump administration will no doubt turn its attention more publicly in due course.

    Trump is taxed with leading the Augean task of cleaning the entire stables. He is said to be supported by the white hats in the American military and in particular in military intelligence. The latter seem central to the revolutionary mode for government to intercommunicate withe people which is represented by the Qanon phenomenon.

    I have no doubt that there is support for Mr.Trump’s movement in the United The Q post above however suggests that there will be more of the kind to follow and that British patriots, especially in the military and those in the security agencies, should find a way publicly to disassociate themselves from the circles that have been conspiring to negate the outcome of the 2016 presidential election in the USA – and it should be noted to bring us to war with Russia and other countries. This will prove a much more difficult task if the monarchy is shown to have been involved, but in such circumstances abolishing or reforming or replacing it would not by itself solve the problem of the British Deep State.

  147. Correction: The first sentence of the last paragraph of my post at 00:09 should read:

    “The Prince of Wales and his siblings command little of the respect or liking she has from the populace. .”

    Bear in mind that Edward VII was widely expected to be a disaster when he succeeded in 1901. And that the establishment had no great confidence in George VI, given that neither his crippling shyness nor his speech defect had ever been properly cured. Give him time … if he has much left …

    Is it valid to compare the unitary and semi-unified Great Britain and leader of the greatest Empire in the world, with the bankrupt, socialist, shrunken, third rate and fragmented state that presents itself as the slop bucket of Europe?
    And a would-be monarch who wants to be the Defender of faiths, meaning of course the religion of peace?

  157. Due to a coupla weeks or so of depression in the deep doldrums, I missed the last two Woodpile Reports. Not suggesting that they would have provided a breeze to fill my psychological sails, enabling escape from the depths of despair brought on by illness and the lunacy that abounds from evry quarter,, but they certainly would have reminded me that there are more ways of killing a cat than choking it with cream.

    What amazes me about Ol’ Remus, the epitome of the long line of Cassandras prognosticating the inexorable Decline of Man, is how he manages to to find the time to read and research the material for his website, then write his synopses with such clarity and regularity, lacing them with his peculiar brand of wisdom and sardonic wit? And apparently enjoying life whilst equipping himself with the means of survival – regardless of the exponential chaos that has now engulfed us all (except the clinically self-deluded Panglossian pricks who infest our corridors of power).

    May the Universal Game Plan, that will eventually erase the happenstance of the the full spectrum humanity: from its highest philosophical musing, through vicious venality and dullard dithering,
    to frenzied foolishness, devise a way to nonethess preserve the output (and links) of this cybersage to prove the existence of homo sapiens to any future omniscient entity that may evolve in the great continuum. No better example of humanity’s complexity exists.And his depicted examples of artwork and photograpic history are a delight.

    If, like me, you missed his last two posts, I promise you that it would be worth catching up. Set aside a day or two and plough through his links. You will not be disappointed, I promise.

  166. No luck posting here, has the barbarian been banned after his long absence?

  167. How get the best use from your Police limousine.
    But he could at least have ordered his driver to attend to the criminal disturbance occurring in front of him.

  168. So much happening, so little worth commenting on, apart from my visit to the quack this morning. The appointment was for 8AM, by 8-30 I was still sitting there like a bleeding lemon, after which I walked out. I did not want to see the prick anyway. Once they get their claws into you they will not let go, half the time they are just ticking boxes. Am I a temperamental sod? Too damn tight I am. After a surfeit of medics, social workers, carers etc, I am gearing up for a rebellion, and I’m feeling bloody great at the prospect.

  169. A couple of hours ago, I watched on television the swearing in of Justice Kavanaugh at the White House. All the Justices attended. My opinion? I think there is already a vacancy on the Supreme Court.

  170. Noa (16:37 8th Oct)

    No Noa, his driver is a civvy. But he had his Staff Officer sitting in the ‘limo’ with him. The Staff Officer would be at least Chief Supt rank.

    This fat acting Commissioner and his cowardly underling chose to flee the scene as one of their colleagues lay bleeding to death outside the Mother of Parliaments (aka the Parliament of Motherfuckers).

    Your DTel link is behind a paywall so I googled up The Express account.

    Read it and weep. Cowardly, overpaid shitcunts who should both be dismissed from the service, if not indeed facing a firing squad. The fact that they acted in such a way is one thing: that they admitted it and tried to justify it with managerial gobbledegook before an official inquiry is astounding. Complacency on stilts. Disgusting – and illustrates perfectly the nadir of what was once the world’s finest independent police force.

  171. The pervasiveness of the Climate Change scam is perfectly illustrated in my local rag (the EDP) today.

    Their forecast about the weather in Norfolk for the coming week (dodgy per se) would in saner times have been interpreted as a brief Indian summer, a regular phenomenon in the UK, and a welcome respite from the first chilly signs of autumn. To say that this has not occurred for forty years is sheer bullshit and probably indicates that the author of the piece had just returned from a convivial lunch with a member of the climatology department at the UEU, the source of the tsunami of crap that now pollutes the global airwaves.

    Having dealt with the speculative local weather forecast, the piece then seques effortlessly into the current boondoggle being perpetrated in South Korea as the propaganda is jacked up to fever pitch and the false figures are bandied about to convince the great unwashed that apocalypse is just around the corner.

    These fuckers need to be herded into a suitable compound and buried in a forty metre deep landfill as punishment for the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on Western Civilisation.

  172. Btw, google up Mark Steyn’s recent You Tube monologue on ‘global warming’ as the perfect antidote. Sorry my tablet won’t allow me to access the link, but I viewed it on my smart telly yesterday.

  173. ‘Smart telly’. The ultimate oxymoron!

  174. Glad to see you’re much better Frank.

  175. As to Craig Mackey, (I can’t refer to the gutless shit as ‘Sir’ ). His knighthood was awarded for delivering £400m of cost savings.
    As PC Palmer’s murder was attributed to the 2 armed police officers being deployed on roving patrol rather than providing static protection Mackey actually had the opportunity to witness at first hand the effect of his savings.
    I hope the bastard wakes up screaming every night for the rest of his life. Sadly I doubt he’ll lose any sleep, never mind either his knighthood, job or pension.

    “There is no greater threat to our freedom than the unaccountable career politician.”

    “The People’s Vote”

  188. Another masterpiece (No.548) prefaced by the usual pretty picture from Ol’ Remus:

    One paragraph therein, while alluding to the Cuban Missile Crisis, activated my chuckle gland (which I had begun to believe had been removed with all the other offal during my recent interface with the H of H):

    “Anyway, when the news broke of a probable military confrontation with the Soviets, my response was measured and reasonable. Fear. Kennedy’s address of October 22nd ramped it up to the sphincter puckering level with a side of white knuckles. Few understood what our so-called “quarantine” really was, namely, a blockade. And a blockade is an act of war under international law. Khrushchev announced the USSR would ignore it as their ships bore dowe line in the sea. Real life was unfolding like a doomsday movie. People with bomb shelters made many new friends.”

    Ahh yes! I remember it well…

  189. – bore down on the line in the sea – (that was a cut an’ paste, so fuck knows what happened there en route).

  190. What explanation could the Saudi furnish if the Turkish claim that they have both audio and video evidence of the dismembering turns out true? Anyone reckons they’ll come clean, say, yup, we murdered him, quartered his corpse, bagged it, took it back to Riyadh to show the boss how well we did? Hmmm

    Nothing will change, the whole affair will blow over, the American GEs will continue backing the Saudis, not predominantly because of the new trade deal worth over $100bn, negotiated by the Donald (he may squeeze some more cash from the deranged Saudi youngster), but because the Saudis price oil in dollars, this is the most valuable asset worth more than some trade of military gear, it supports the dollar as the world reserve currency. You must be tired what with Baron repeating it again and again, but notice that no MSM hack has ever mentioned it.

    Nobody as yet has asked how did the Turks get the evidence, how did the CIA obtain the intercept of the telephone call between the butchering team and Riyadh, surely it must have come via Moscow, the Americans or the Turks never do any hacking, wire tapping, no?

    The Saudi Royal has missed a trick, all he had to do is say that close to Consulate there parked a Russian car with diplomatic number plates, an electronic gadget in the boot of it, the Russians switched off the security cameras (hence no pictures of the journalist leaving the building). Simples really, it seems the Saudis aren;t as clued up as is everyone else.

  191. A gentle yarn, Frank, the Woodpile musings, if Baron memory serves the collective response of the Muscovites around the place of his abode on the days of the crisis was to clear the shelves of shops of everything one could eat or drink, even the stuff that never sold, the latter didn’t include the staples like bread, sausages and vodka, these sold more than quickly, crisis or not.

    Many have called for his resignation, Noa, but why? It must be enough the police is driving around with cars emblazoned with ‘to serve and to protect’. This may be unfair to the many cops on the street who genuinely care, but it’s symptomatic of the top layer of the force.

    The first thought that occurred to the the barbarian when he heard the testimony on the radio was ‘why didn;t you switch the engine on, use the car as a weapon?’ But that would have breached the thug’s human rights, a postulate of the progressives that seems to trump common sense.

  194. Peter, what has happened to Baron’s postings prior to today? He cannot repost, the system says ‘it’s duplicate’ or words to that effect.

  195. Good to see a Baron string.
    Glad to see some reality speak on the Saudi/Turkish debacle.
    Seeking moral high ground with Arab countries has always been fruitless.

  196. Meanwhile, more evidence of the acquisitive Germans.

  197. And Alexander Boot’s take on China:

    “The smaller problem is the lamentable inability to grasp the nature of the effect communism has on a nation – especially one with no traditions of Western civility.

    Communism is misanthropic hatred of our civilisation, expressed as history’s most evil ideology. If practised for a few decades it tends to kill not only millions of bodies but also tens, or in China’s case hundreds, of millions of souls.

    It befouls the collective soul of a nation, destroying whatever is good and fostering everything that’s evil. And if there wasn’t enough evil there in the first place, communism makes sure the level is built up to the desired standard.

    It’s a cancer, metastasising over a nation’s entire body. Just like an oncological patient, the nation may survive. But it’ll never be the same: its moral fibre will never grow back to cover all the gaping holes.

    That’s why abandoning communism fully is impossible: the residual disease will still be there for many generations, gnawing surreptitiously on every organ”

  199. Baron 21.07
    I think you will find that it is American, not British police cars that are emblazoned with the ‘To protect and Serve’ logo.
    The UK Police Service is there to do precisely that. To protect and serve our Political Class and its trusty underlings from the common herd they hold in contempt.

  200. And of course, British police will be promoting and protecting transsexual, black and minority ethnic and of course queer rights.
    A politically aware Sir Craig would have felt much more comfortable interspersing his body between a rampant rapist and his homosexual victim than between a knife wielding BAME and his symbolic White Oppresser.

  201. The Jamal Khashoggi’s pantomime: (Baron says it because of the Arabic dress he wears more often than not everywhere – on TV, in other media that display him).

    The idea being implanted in people’s minds is that he was a genuine reformer, someone whose democratic credentials shone through, a man of the liberal Left. And that this was the motive for his departure from our mortal world.

    That’s total bollocks, he backed the youngster, was critical only marginally. The reason he was got rid of was his money. He’s the nephew of Adnan Khashoggi, a gun dealer, and in the 80s one of the richest men in the world. The Riyadh despot wanted his money, Khashoggi refused to cough up, the other relatives (many of them still living in the land of the sand) will think twice now when asked to part with whatever they have.

  202. Not one of his better ones to display the insane hatred of a religious fruitcake, Marshall.

    One cannot disagree on the communist doctrine, it’s unquestionably massively inferior to the that of capitalism. Both are economic creeds, both concern the creation and distribution of societal wealth, souls enter into it only because the former relies on, or attempts to mould, one key inane trait of the human being.

    We all, or perhaps the vast majority of us anyway, desire to better our existence whilst breathing, call it greed or simple a natural in-born survival instinct, but it is this that drives us to try and enrich ourselves. It fits also neatly the utilitarian theory of our seeking pleasure, avoiding pain in that if one has the monetary means one can get more of the former less of the latter.

    The communist doctrine either kills this naturally in-built driving force or greatly negates it (until the black market steps in, allows the force to reassert itself again).

    This in no way implies capitalism smells of roses, the current wealth gap between the richest and those at the other end of the cake’s distribution doesn’t feel right. Why should Amazon’s Bezos sit on a wealth of over a trillion bucks when millions live on a dollar per day. One may say, that’s hard titty for the billions of the poor, which is fine until the billions pick up forks and move. In the end, capitalism will survive, Baron hopes it does, only if (1) it retains its primary driving force sufficiently to encourage an unabated wealth creation as well as (2) makes the sharing of the cake more equitable, no?

  206. Drain the UK Swamp!

  207. The Skripals charade hasn’t died out yet, one of the Belingcats’s geniuses was on the BBC Radio4 this morning, Baron caught only the tail end of the programme.

    The presenter was congratulating the guy, thought the evidence dug up by the outfit was not just believable ,but proved conclusively the Russians did it, also got him to elaborate how the Russians were after him, his family, he got a threatening message that came from the Russian Embassy in Bulgaria ….(we only have his word for it, he didn’t say what the message said).

    Could any of you enlighten Baron what is the irrefutable evidence? A couple of Russian clowns walking around Salisbury on the day two unfortunate individuals got poisoned proves the Russians did it? Hmmm

    No single molecule of Novichok has ever been in the public domain, the samples were doctored, the two unfortunate individuals sitting on the bench got hit most likely by an incapacitating agent (VX?).

    The two individuals were not the Skripals, the pair were most likely the two Brits who were involved in the charade later, Rowley and Sturgess (the female passer-by who was amongst the first to offer help made that claim saying the poisoned couple looked very similar to a man and woman walking near ZiZi on a grainy photo released by the police, the Rowley’s brother said in one of the first interviews he gave ‘I warned him not to get involved with that lot’, what or who is ‘that lot’?).

    Why haven’t we seen any pictures of the hospitalised pair? Why has everyone, even those involuntarily involved, been served with the D-notice? Why hasn’t any journalist interviewed any of those involved – the ambulance crew, the hospital personnel, no one? Just imagine how stronger would the case eb for the Government if the people handling or offering help to the two poisoned individuals were to describe their pain, suffering, the miraculous recovery.

    The two Russians alleged tourists were a part of the conspiracy, but didn;t know at all what it was all about. They got recruited by our security services in Russia, sent on a mission that had nothing to do with the poisoning.

    They, Petrov and Bashirov, resemble somewhat the two unfortunate Brits involved – a pair of chancers, street wise but not too bright, gullible, no steady job, indulging in drugs and sex, close to what one would describe as dropouts from society. Security services are allegedly befriending such people, gaining their trust, making use of them if an opportunity arises e.g. the Cox’s case.

    If Baron’s wrong than we, as well as the Russians have a mother of problems. We, because we’ve allowed a couple of killers to pass the security at the borders, failed to stopped them accomplishing the deed (even though the police were called when the two smoked marihuana, shagged prostitutes, disturbed other guests in a London hotel the night before).

    The Russians because their security services seem to be stuffed with clowns, amateurs, blundering imbeciles – and that isn;t referring to just the two guys in love with the Salisbury Cathedral.

    (Baron’s typing it whilst consuming half a dozen Irish oysters, large beasts, each the size of one’s palm, drinking a glass of Chablis, forgive the errors, but isn;t life beautiful?).

  208. Malfleur @ October 13th, 2018 – 14:54

    The timing of this affair doesn’t seem right, Malfleur, what with the end of the Brexit circus in sight, but those in power should be careful not to alienate further the boys and girls of the armed forces, they volunteer to risk their lives, they are made of sterner stuff than the snowflakes of the progressive tribe, they may revolt.


  210. A friend of Baron just called (not because he’sjelous of the oyster feast) to point out we have a bigger problem with our security service than anyone else, they’ve been investigating the Skripals charade for six months, came up with zilch, yet an agency stuffed with amateurs traced the wrongdoers, furnished evidence proving Vlad did it, at no cost to the taxpayer.

    Why pay the hundreds of millions for the MI5s when we can get results immeasurably cheeper outsourcing the tasks to Belingcat.

    Good point, no?

  211. Baron @ 15:13

    Just as well we don’t have a Deep State in England, no, Baron? Otherwise we might find we had another conspiracy theory on our hands….

  212. The Tommy’s bandwagon has reached the Republic, one wonders what will happen when his case comes up again later this month.

    If Baron can make it, he’ll be at the Old Bailey on October 23rd, will report back to you.

  213. Malfleur @ October 13th, 2018 – 15:36


  214. You recall the saintly One saying, within hours of the poisoning, that Russia must have poisoned the Skripals because only Russia had the motive and the tool (Novichok).

    It has since been established that ‘the tool’ was and is available to a number of countries, and if you listen to the video below, it may soon be also clear that another player had a motive to remove the double agent Skripal from public view – the British – because of the Steele dossier.

    Skripal must have been one of the contributors, if not the most important one, and he could not have been fielded to testify even if the testimony were to be behind closed doors, it would have leaked as much as the other stuff has leaked.

    As suspected, the Deep State backers did;t want to risk digging up dirt on the Donald, they asked the British to do it, it was Steele who got the job, he had Skripal living next door to him.

    If the Clinton woman were to win, everything should have been fine. It was the Donald’s victory that began a chain of events that also included the removal of Skripal. One wonders what has become of him, could the FBI traced him, bring him to testify?

    Interesting times we live in, No?

    Ten minutes spent looking for the prank, Radford, nothing found.

    Just a thought, how did the girls in the elaborate outfits go to have a pee?

    Also, sorry for the errors in Baron’s postings, the poorly educate dSlav just won’t get better.

  221. Here’s another take on Khashoggi:

    Is it likely the CIA didn’t know about the 15-men strong team dispatched from Riyadh to Istanbul to mishandle the man? It took three days between the Khashoggi’s first visit to the Consulate and the team arriving. There must be many in Saudi Arabia who don’t like MsB, wouldn’t one of them give a hint to the Americans what was going on? Better still, would MbS go ahead with it without the nod from the Americans?

    Now, it’s a big headache for the Donald, what does he do? He doesn’t want to lose the $100bn plus deal (only 10% has so far been presented to the Congress for approval), may even hope to get more cash from the Saudis adding few more fighters or whatever.

    This rather unfortunate atrocity links with the long absence of Jeff Sessions from the headlines, the Donald has been critical of it, too.

    Could it be Sessions knows something about the Mueller’s report coming soon? Something bad enough the Donald will find impossible to wiggle out of?

    The Malfeur’s prediction of ‘sealed indictments soon’ seems to be delayed again just like the predictions of the AGW fruitcakes about the imminent collapse of the world because of the the climate change.

    Echoes of the Parliamentarians who, during the Civil War, unleashed and weoponised the religious and political radicals in their war against the Royalists.
    The people’s Commissars in the New Model Army nearly installed a people’s democracy during the Putney Debates. Foiled only by a horrified Parliament who were happy to execute Charles I but did not intend to lose their land, wealth or status. The arch reactionary Oliver Cromwell brutally reinstated the status quo by executing the Levellers leaders at Burford Church.
    So where will Tommy Robinson be executed and by whom? MI5?, the MCB? Her Majesty’s Prison service or Her Loyal Opposition?

    This, Malfleur looks not look like it’s in a pure computer code, neither is it close to what ordinary people use to communicate with each other, the English language.

    Still, Baron gets the message, but he has said it before, all these preparations, sackings and manoeuvring may be too late if the Deep State opens on all fronts after the M’s report out. Comprende?

  232. Malfleur @ October 14th, 2018 – 08:26

    For the last time, Malfleur, life’s too short to listen to a guy speculating (we here are doing the same) for 45 minutes, his musings interrupted by commercials for drugs, no wonder that per capita the burghers of the Republic have the highest consumption of prescription drugs, the highest abuse of prescription drugs, and the highest use of illegal drugs amongst all countries s.

    Still, let’s hope you and those you trust are right, it’s the Donald that cleanses the Swamp rather than the other way round.

  233. EC @ October 14th, 2018 – 10:24

    Thanks for re-publishing it, EC, the barbarian has missed it. Mind boggling, Baron had to watch it twice to absorb the message of the fuckwit fully.

    It may well be we’re reaching or are very close to the pinnacle of the rule of societal debauchery, EC, after getting there the convulsive phase cannot but follow, whether it be a civil war or a war with our evil enemies e.g. Russia, who knows, but if the sexual cum gender revolution expands any further we’ll all dress like clowns, do FA but shag or bugger each other 24/7, call it the ultimate freedom because terminal for our culture it will be.

  234. John birch. @ October 14th, 2018 – 10:49

    That piece references the Ford-Kavanaugh fight, John, right?, something that made Baron rather unpopular.

    He maintained, still does, the Ford’s story was believable, it may have happened to her even though she didn;t remember all the details, may have confused the real attacker bla, bla. Not that Baron has any evidence to back his take on it, he simple cannot imagine someone would lie that fully, made it all up, not one grain of truth in it.

    Where the Americans went wrong was allowing Ford to dust up the unfortunate event now, 36 years after it allegedly happened, and not sufficienty stressing that the behaviour of a maturing teenage boy in no way equates that of a grown up, well educated, community involved man of 50.

  235. EC @ October 14th, 2018 – 10:50

    A secret, EC, but try and keep it to yourself, the other half a dozen of the tasty mollusks will be devoured just as the barbarian finishes typing this message to you.

    Sadly no champagne or caviar, the retired poorly educated Slav isn’t monied enough to afford either, he isn’t as well off as (say) the highly ranked retired police officer who can afford to live in an area where house prices shout loudly that only those on mouth watering pensions or bank robbers can reside. Life’s so unfair.

    The NHK TV channel has more ‘Journeys in Japan’ on a cycle or not, all very enjoyable, the Japanese folks are unique in more sense than one, as is the environment.

    It’s because there’re two countries, Alex, one inhabited by common sense burghers who respect their predecessors with all the warts and boils, the other populated by people determined to write off the past, and to re-engineer the souls of the common sense people.

  237. “.. but if the sexual cum gender revolution expands any further we’ll all dress like clowns, do FA but shag or bugger each other 24/7, call it the ultimate freedom because terminal for our culture it will be…”

    Language, Malfleur, language.

    Apologies, if it hurt, but you do have a habit posting links that run and run, others may have th etime Baron hasn’t, he cannot listen to everything that’s offered even if it’s filtered by you or anyone else.

    Have a good night sleep.

  241. Noa @ October 14th, 2018 – 12:59

    Come on, Noa, be frank, aren;t you tempted to join in? Baron cannot, he’s long past it, when people talk about sex he’s thinking, wait a minute, yes, yes, it’s coming back, many years ago …..

    Talking about Franks, is there anything that would wake up our remaining guru from hibernation? He must be embarrassed for soon he’s be joined by another high ranking member of the force who distinguished himself fleeing from a crime scene in a car ubt has the backing of what’s her name, hmmm …. no, Baron cannot remember.

  242. In case you’re wondering why the barbarian mentioned house prices in the vicinity of our guru’s residence here’s the explanation.

    Recently, Baron visited few coastal town s around the Aldeburgh – Southwold corner of East Anglia, how could anyone afford to live there, the house prices beat London’s hands down. Have a look:

  243. I’m unclear whether this is the Guardian publishing a piece from the Observer, or the other way round, but it’s especially interesting because it declares that there is “irony” in the current disagreement between Bin Salmon and Erdogan over the murder of a journalist. –

    “As enemies of free speech and a free press, Bin Salman and Erdoğan …… share a dislike of brave people such as Khashoggi who speak up and hold powerful autocrats to account. Ironically, it is the fate of this liberal journalist that has sparked a crisis between these too most illiberal figures.”

    Ironically? Maybe, but while the Guardian and the Observer are concerned about “brave people such as Khashoggi who speak up and hold powerful autocrats to account”, where is their concern for Tommy Robinson? He is a similarly brave person in their own country who speaks up and endeavours to hold those in power to account.

    Tommy Robinson is Britain’s own version of Khashoggi. It is as plain as can be that the British government and Establishment dislike free speech just as do Bin Salman and Erdoğan because they use the Police and judiciary to suppress it. Moreover they have endeavoured to get Tommy Robinson murdered too. Yet the Guardian and Observer are silent about it.

    Irony on Stilts.

  244. “I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest.”

    If as Herbert Thornton suggests, “Tommy Robinson is Britain’s own version of Khashoggi.” then Robinson is., on the evidence of his former colleague John Bradley, a more complex and shadowy character than the heroic journalist the Guardian seeks to portray him as. A fundamentalist Muslim supremacist with links to the Muslim Brotherhood, his opposition to Bin Salman is more about the method of obtaining Muslim supremacy than the ultimate objective.
    And as Baron suggests above, the Khashoggi family and its money has a role to play in Saudi politics…

  245. As to the Winston Churchill quotation, let us, in this instance, substitute Saudi Arabia for our old friends and ally Russia.

  247. Noa @ Oct 14th 2018 – 20-07

    Now I feel a bit confused. When I wrote “Tommy Robinson is Britain’s own version of Khashoggi” I certainly didn’t intend to imply that I support Khashoggi’s opinions. But I do support Tommy and I do agree with Tommy’s opinions.

    Careful, you’re letting your inner Polly Toynbee/”Guardianista” show!

    It’s difficult to listen to someone who lives a a Listed Elizabethan manor house complain about property prices. I’m willing to bet that you live a lot closer to Aldeburgh than Frank P does. It’s is at least a two hour car ride for him.

    Anyway, I prefer Southwold, it’s home to one of my favourite brewers.

    With apologies, my post should have read:

  253. Phil the Greek strikes again ??? ………Jamal is (was) Dodi’s cousin .

    The family patriarch was a Turk , Dr. Khasoggi, who was personal doctor to bad king Al Saud.His son was Adnan Khassoggi , a notorious arms dealer until things turned down.Adnan’s sister , Samira , was married to Mohamed Al-Fayed : their son being Dodi.
    Another sibling ( it isn’t clear who ) is the parent of Jamal Khashoggi : so his uncle is Adnan and Dodi was his cousin.

  254. Jamal Khasoggi appears to be an agit-prop agent of the muslim brotherhood : ( agit-prop = agitation and propaganda ; another trick they have picked up from the Bolsheviks ).

  255. The Western World is becoming more and more insane, so why not #MeAsWell? –

    “Judge awards two Transgendered Persons $500,000 damages for hurt feelings after Fish and Chip shop owners refuse to accept their order for a cake decorated with icing reading “SEX IS BEST UPSIDE DOWN AND BACK TO FRONT”.

    The Judge also issues a permanent ban on publication of his decision and orders the Police to arrest anyone who might be heard discussing the case in public – e.g. on a bus or in a local pub – and to immediately bring whomever they have arrested before him.

    The following Saturday night the Police overhear several members of the public (who had been in the courtroom gallery at the time of the decision) discussing the matter in a Public House Bar.

    The Police arrest them and take them to the Judge’s house, where he is having a bath. He comes downstairs in his bathrobe, tells the Police to bring them into his hallway, where he demands that they explain why they were discussing the matter.

    They tell him they didn’t understand why a Fish and Chip Shop owner should be expected to bake a cake. The Judge indignantly says that it isn’t a matter of a fatuous distinction between a cake and a bag of Fish and Chips. It’s a matter of hurt feelings and of Hate and of covert Racism. He directs the Police to flog them all, then and there, which they enthusiastically do, while the Judge uses his Smartphone to record it happening.

    The following morning the Judge and the Police post the recording of the flogging on Twitter with the comment – “Let this be a lesson to everybody that civilisation must be preserved.” “

  258. Don’ worry, Noa. Pompei is sorting it and The Don has already spoken to his good friend The King on the blower. The MSM will keep squealing, but when money talks…..

  259. “Rogue elements what done it” says the Donald in roughly that quality of language, and he’s right, the ‘rogue elements’ hint is half way through to finding the true killer, just ask yourselves, who could the rogue elements be, does any world tribe come to mind, is there an evil capable of such a sickening act lurking somewhere that must have planned, executed this atrocity, is now hastily covering up for it?

    Yup, you have it, the Russians. There still is a chance the involvement of Russia will surface, just give the joint investigative team a chance.

    What cheers Baron no end is how every MSM poodle and each political gnome’s falling backwards to explain the butchering without actually pointing the finger firmly where it should be pointed. That’s the 21st century democratic West at its best.

    The Russians have flogged their S-400 system to the Kingdom for several billions, hosted the old King last December, have diplomatic relations with the medieval barbarians but kissing their ar$es?, hmmmm, there’s no need for it.

    Everyone knows, everyone with functioning brain cells that it, we do business with the sand dune dwellers because of jobs, why not say so, the Saudis would have to swallow the explanation for without the West, or rather the Republic’s backing, they would be toast in no time, only Prince Charles would sulk, and whatever remains of the Arabic phylum at the Foreign Office, but so what.

  260. Your pension, Noa, is as safe is is anyone else’s whatever happens in the Land of the sand dwellers, but you make have timed it well to retire as you did because something tells the barbarian this time round thing may change.

  261. Baron forgot to attach the link below with the 11:13 posting.

    This is just one of many narratives describing the 70’s deal between the US and the Saudis still in place today that explains why the Republic loses more than the Kingdom if the relationship falls apart (Oil pricing may well have been one of the issue s discussed by the old King in Moscow last Autumn).

    The Bretton Woods system came to an end because Nixon severed the convertibility of the dollar into gold (and vice versa) in 1971 (not strictly true, an individual couldn’t convert since 1033, the convertibility stopped by Nixon was only for states. This ended at a stroke the need of any nation to hold dollars as its reserve currency, the Americans needed a ‘new gold’ found it in ‘black gold’ – oil.

    Because of the pricing of oil in dollars the world needs each year around $9.0bn to buy the stuff – the US GDP runs around $ currently.

  262. In the true spirit of English generosity and in salutation to the replies I receive from all the sturdy beggers to my generous advice to seek gainful employment when they approach me for money at Glasgow Central station. I attach the following racist joke at our expense.
    Edward I of England comes to Scotland to conquer the Scots.He brings 4,000 men with him. As he nears the battlefield. There suddenly appears a solitary figure on the crest of the hill. A short, ginger-haired guy in a kilt.
    Come up here, ya English bastards, and I’ll give ye a hammerin’!’

    Edward turns to his commander. ‘Send 20 men to deal with that little Scottish upstart, he says.
    The commander sends twenty of his best men over the hill to kill the Scotsmen.
    Ten minutes later, at the crest of the hill, the little Scot appears again.
    ‘Ya English diddies!’ he yells.’Come on the rest of ye!! Come on, I’ll take ye all on!’
    Edward is getting somewhat annoyed. He turns to his commander. ‘Send 100 men to kill that little shite!’
    The commander sends 100 men Over the hill to do the job. Ten minutes later, the little Scot appears at the top of the hill once more, his hair all sticking up, his shirt a wee bit torn.
    Ya English SCUM!’ he yells. ‘I’m just warming up!! Come and get me, Ya English shites !!’
    Edward losses patience. ‘Commander, take 400 men and personally wipe that little bastard off the face of the earth!’ he yells.
    The commander gulps, but leads four Hundred men on horseback over the crest of the hill.
    Ten minutes later, the little Scotsman is back.
    His clothing is all torn, his face is covered in blood, Snot and Irn-Bru.
    ‘Is that the best ye can do??? You’re bloody WUMMIN!!! Come on!! Come and have a go, ya bunch of English Shites!!!’ he yells.

    Edward turns to his second in command. ‘Take 1,000 men over that hill and don’t come back till you’ve killed that little red haired bastard!’ he commands.
    The second in command gathers the men and they ride off over the hill to their fate.
    Ten minutes later, one of the English troops appears back at the top of the hill. covered in blood, his clothes all torn off his back. ‘Your Majesty!’ he yells.
    ‘It’s a trap!!!

    There’s two of them!

  263. Frank P
    “Don’ worry, Noa. Pompei is sorting it and The Don has already spoken to his good friend The King on the blower…”
    I thought for a moment on reading that a catestrophic volcanic eruption would resolve all need for any human concerns on such matters!
    WNot the case of course, though I won’t be expecting Mr Pompeo or any other Americans to support British trade and Defence export activities. In these as in most other matters, national interests take priority in what really is a cutthroat business, with the winner taking all and the ethical trader going to the wall.
    As to the BAE pension the last time I looked it had a £4.3 billion deficit so I don’t share Baron’s sanguine approach to its inevitable viability.

  264. Daily Mail claims Jamal was *second* cousin of Dodi…….Phil the Greek spreads his net wider.

  265. The Donald believes the Prince’s total denial of what happened in that fatal Consulate, he also believes the investigation by the Saudis will be thorough, truthful and fully believable, and most importantly, he also believes pigs fly.

    This is where the Donald’s criticism of the MSM’s fake news falls flat on its face, so transparently that it may be difficult for his supporters bar the most loyal ones to believe, back him on other issues.

    Why doesn’t he, or they, the Full Monty of the governing elite, acknowledge the truth, say the relationship is purely economic (both the sale of the military gear and the oil dollar pricing fall under this heading), beneficial to the Republic, her plebeians, also to the stability of the world financial system. They may even add for good measure that the latter is what has enabled the Republic to live so long on debt because the rest of the world i.e. the 95% of people living on this planet are the willing creditors and as a result suffer lower standard of living that would be otherwise (that is if they did;nt have to lend money to the Republic).

  266. Totalitarian and Racist? The most wicked kind of Hate imaginable? Part of a secret agreement between Trump and China? Being put into effect with help from Putin? Propaganda to cover up the reality of mass genocide?

    Or straightforward, Chinese Common Sense?

  267. One should get a second opinion on the story, Herbert, the CTV channel is Canadian broadcaster, right? Well, a solid part of the MSM lapdogs network, they are more than likely twist the story their way, one needs another take on it.

  268. Radford NG @ October 16th, 2018 – 19:46

    How significant is this link, Radford, they’re all related there, the top layers.

    The two most important bits the MSM poodles won’t mention are (1) the Prince was and may still be after the family’s fortune (unless the clan has signed it over to him), the dead and quartered is the nephew of one of the richest men in the world in the 80s, Adnan Khashoggi, it’s unlikely the wealth has disappeared, the clan must still be rich, the Prince needs the money, Saudi Arabia’s foreign currency reserves are down to $400bn, their threat of reducing the output of oil is laughable, they would go bankrupt in no time, their other threat i.e. switching to pricing oil in a currency other than the dollars is however real, the Americans will do everything prevent it.

    (2) The murdered man was not critical of the Prince’s policies apart from one, the Saudis closnest with Israel.

  269. A man sits next to a young girl on a train, her mobile rings, she answers it, ‘it’s Sue here’ then keeps talking to the caller quite loudly, it’s her boyfriend who questions her about the lateness of her coming home, she’s trying to convince him she isn’t with Kevin, no, no, Kevin no longer interests her, she’s late because she had to stay overtime in the office, her boyfriend isn’t happy about the explanation so she has to go through the same in some detail over and over again, the boyfriend’s still not satisfied, she says she has also missed an earlier train, it will take some time before she gets home when the man sitting next to her puts his mouth closer to her phone, says: ‘Hang up, Sue, and come to bed’.

  270. Baron
    October 17th, 2018 – 15:21

    If you want a second opinion on it, I suggest that the motive behind the CTV report is to assure worried Canadians that their Liberal government ought to – and is going to – expand its noble policy of encouraging more and more Muslims (now including China’s Central Asian Muslims) to immigrate to Canada.

    That of course will inevitably lead to many of them then moving illegally into the U.S.A., thus giving the wicked, racist Americans and Donald Trump, who pretend that Islam is not benign, a well deserved poke in the eye.

  271. Both Tommy Robinson (and the Rebel Media) may perhaps have become somewhat confused about what is going on. I expect a lot of other people will be too, because the idea of a “Retrial” where a Judge and not somebody like the Attorney General leads the prosecution – i.e.plays the part of the prosecutor – sounds so outlandish and incomprehensible.

    The only explanation I can think of is that the Court of Appeal that ordered the “Retrial” didn’t intend it to have the character of a criminal trial, but rather, since it concerned an alleged “Contempt of Court”, to be a direct inquiry and investigation by a Judge. To put it another way, is Justice Hellier going to treat it not as a criminal matter but purely as a question of Contempt? But that makes me ask – how in heaven’s name is it appropriate for it to take place in major Criminal Court like the Old Bailey?

    I wonder what Noa thinks?

  272. And why wouldn’t he trained in Britain, the sand dwellers are our best friends:

    Have saw – will travel, the new catchphrase for Saudi Airlines?

    In the words of the old saw we can only hope and trust the autopsy was at least halal.

  275. Herbert Thornton.

    In a real world scenario the ideal solution would be for Robinson to purge his contempt by apologising for any breach he committed of previous restrictions and for the the judge to lay down the clear and unequivocal reporting restrictions applicable to all reporting of the case.
    However I suspect TR is going to receive a punitive `sentence` from a humiliated and vengeful judiciary for the exposure of their partiality and injustice at the Court of Appeal.
    This event to be preceded by the release today of Adjem Choudray, imprisoned on a similarly trumped up charge of grooming for terrorism, by a government anxious to silence him at any cost to our traditional liberties.
    The difference is that Chaudray will benefit from £2 millions worth of UK taxpayers jizya for his welfare and protection, whilst Robinson and his family will enjoy the splendid uncertainties of survival in the corrupt and murderous UK prison system.

  276. Reporting restrictions have been lifted on the child-rape / muslim white-slave-trade trials in Leeds which have been going on all year which lead to Tommy Robinson being imprisoned.

    Information can be found in today’s Yorkshire Evening Post.

  278. Could anyone give Baron a hint why the posting below was censored by the Spectator, please:

    “There’s absolutely nothing to prove the two planted any poison on anything, there never ever was any Novichok anywhere in the public domain, neither were the Skripals harmed by any other substance, the poisoned couple on the bench wasn’t the Skripals. One day, hopefully, we’ll learn the truth, or at laest something close to it.

    The whole Novichok charade was designed to smear Russia some more, also to ensconce Skripal away from public view, there was the risk he’ll be asked to testify in the Republic about the Steele dossier, the testimony would have been in public, much better for Mueller to talk to him in private, get more dirt on the Donald, no?”

    Only life, no parole for the lot, John, may have furnished the deterrent powerful enough for others not to think twice, but to never think.

  280. Baron October 19th, 2018 – 16:12

    Obviously your rhetorical question was not on-message m’lud. 😉

  281. Baron 1813.

    It posts OK with and without the “dirt” as tested by a good friend on the Leith thread.

  282. David Lindsay @ October 19th, 2018 – 20:38

    Thanks, David.

    Funny that the word ‘dirt’ fits the category of offensive language when there’s so much of it around.

    If one checks the on-line directory”


    information about someone’s activities or private life that could prove damaging if revealed.

    “is there any dirt on Desmond?”

  283. Noa @ October 19th, 2018 – 16:56

    A guess Baron would gladly opt for, Noa, if he didn’t say nearly the same few days before, had no difficulty posting it then.

  284. The latest thick people march .
    Delia Smith said on stage that people ‘weren’t full informed’ about first vote
    Perhaps they were to stupid to understand what they we’re told.

  285. Right on Melanie: nota bene 1922 committee and ignore the inflated numbers of the Gramscian gathering UpWest yesterday. May must go – pronto – or our country ceases to exist:

    How the fuck did a praying mantis claw its way into No.10.

    If anybody has any doubts about who is the primary traitor of the UK just watch thar beady-eyed commie bastard Starmer and his propaganda on Telly. He sowed the seeds while infiltrating the corridors of power through the Trojan Horse of the CPS and is now fertilising them with the claasic bullshit of Alinsky’s Rules for radicals. Any sane government would have banged him up years ago.

  286. Frank P, October 20th, 2018 – 17:07

    That was a quality job from “Gloria” on Vanderleun’s blog

  287. Frank P – 16:24

    “Any sane government would have banged him [Starmer] up years ago.”

    As Groucho once observed, “There ain’t no Sanity Claus!”

  288. Frank P – 16:24

    … also

    I’ve been saying that Frau Merkel’s UK Gauleiter was a “wrong-un” for years. Her actions and inactions as Home Secretary showed us exactly who she was. Her replacement at the Home Office, also probably on HRTs, was just as bad and the present incumbent who looks like “The Hood,” the villain in Thunderbird puppet TV series, is even worse still !

  289. Melanie has slightly different and interesting perspective on the Cash-Hoggi affair….

  290. Noa,

    Here’s the Head Brewer (Phwoar!) explaining why PH1 (aka “spreadshit Phil” ) should be locked up…

  291. Melanie’s take on the Khashoggi mystery is mildly interesting but how many of us really care?

    I believe that we should all be much more concerned about what will happen at the Old Bailey on Tuesday.

    There will be a trial of some sort – but will it not be as much a trial of the British Judicial system as of Tommy Robinson?

    Will Tommy be subjected, in effect, to a more gradual version of what fate has meted out to Khashoggi?

    And if that happens, how many more of us are going to be “Khashoggied”?

  292. Herbert Thornton @ October 21st, 2018 – 20:04

    We should care about the K’s alleged murder (if it turns out to be true, one has to trustee tinpot Sultan here) exactly because of the point you make in the last sentence, Herbert.

    Here’s what puzzles:

    The CIA have known for some time the Saudis were trying to kidnap the man, didn’t warn him. If the Turks were recording the actual slaughtering they must have been recording prior to it, too, must have heard what happened between K’s first and the fatal second visit, didn’t tell him. Other agencies of the Turkish State must also have been alerted what with the sudden hire of the two private planes, their arrival with the top MbS’s bodyguard and fifteen others, one equipped with a bone saw, and again said nothing to K. Why?

  293. Melanie’s take on the alleged K’s slaughter is tainted, EC, she’s backing Bibi over 100% and he, Bibi, is currently on intimate terms with the butchers of Riyadh, pity because normally she consistently furnishes one of the best takes on events, if not the best.

  294. What happened to Malfleur?

    It wasn’t something the barbarian had said, was it, Malfleur?

    Please, do return, young sir.

  295. This may have been posted by Baron before, he cannot remember, Alzheimer’s to blame. It explains why the Americans will never give up on the Saudi butchers (and it matters not abit who sits in the Oval Office).

    Just a thought occurred now to the barbarian: It wouldn;t shock at all to learn that one or two of the alleged four calls made form the Consulate to the MbS’s Private Secretary when the butchering was on were passed to the Prince, who mocked, derided the tortured man.

    The moral code of Arab Muslims values revenge (as opposed to that of the Jewish wing of the Abrahamic family that says revenge should be left to God. The Torah: ‘Justice, justice, shall you pursue’).

  296. John birch. @ October 20th, 2018 – 19:53

    The Spectator has a piece on it, John, the vast majority of the postings make fun of the crowds, rightly so, some of the placards defy sanity, particularly the one with Adolf in it. How does the house painter fit into Brexit exactly?

  297. An educational piece, the book, if not excessively expensive, must be worth it, too:

  298. It’s only few days back a friend suggested Baron looks at the the blog below, it’s a one man operation, a kind of anti-Billingcat outfit, seems to home on the Skripals alot, but talks common sense on other issues, too. You may like to have a look, bookmark if you like him.

  299. We haven’t heard from the omni-all one village psycho for a long time, here he’s commenting on Putin’s remarks at the the Valdai Club gathering recently (Frank should savour this, alot of references to the USSR he kept watching over).

    The barbarian was tempted to furnish a posting recommending the man sees a psychiatrist pronto, but changed his mind, what’s the bloody point, he needs a permanent bed in an asylum for hopeless cases.

    At one point, the escaped village idiot says that the communist thugs were more sane than the current Kremlin’s leadership (hence the removal of Nikita who, according to the psycho, was just about to nuke the West – a total fabrication). A bunch of mostly common thugs believing in communism were saner than Vlad & co? Arghhh

    Btw, Russian companies are not cancelling their attendance at the Davos in the Sand Dunes, if anything others than those invited want to go. As one of the Duma members points out the Western elites get berserk when one of their own gets killed by another of their own, but keep quiet when tens of thousands of ordinary people including children get killed.

    In vain Baron was searching for the list of those invited (companies and VIPs). Anyone came across one?

  300. Dated somewhat, but worth scanning through.

    The postings are revealing, and not just under this piece. If one reads the variety of blogs available, it’s amazing how every blog owner attracts mostly people of similar outlook, dissenting voices are rare, any ‘outsider’ gets labeled, often the animosity spills over what one would say facing the sparring partner.


    Is Baron going to talk to himself from now on?

  301. Baron
    October 22nd, 2018 – 13:54

    Please don’t conclude that you are talking to yourself. Your most recent series of postings have been fascinating. And I agree with you that Boot belongs in the Loony Bin.

  302. I am back, not hat I have been away but I have been a victim of the Facebook fiasco, but now am in possession of my new computer, it is one of those smart machines which means I do not know how to operate the bloody contraption, but I am a contrary sod and I will conquer the damn machine. Been a bit shaky of late, I had the flu jab lately then went down with the worst dose in a long time, will I ever learn? nppot bloody likely.

  303. Boot to the bin?
    Yes, though a boot up the arse is more satisfying to the Deliverer.

  304. Stephen Maybury
    The new flu jab laid me low for 10 days too.
    Unless the NHS has sent in a 16 man hit squad to resolve the Noa problem with some cutting edge wetwork…

  305. Judge Hillier appears to have at last done what Judge Heather Norton ought to have done in the first place – i.e. refer the Tommy Robinson contempt allegation to the Attorney General. Or perhaps she did?

    At any rate Judge Hillier seems to have washed his own hands more or less clean of participation in what still looks like a conspiracy involving judges, government and the media to procure Tommy’s murder.

    I wonder if the Attorney General and Home Secretary (and maybe the Prime Minister) are now discussing the “situation”? Meantime, if I were Tommy, I’d be very much inclined to always wear clean gloves and to avoid visiting Salisbury.

  306. According to my local news TV Channel, Police busted a house on the outskirts of Norwich being used as a cannabis farm. Ganga street value £250,000 apparently, growing on all floors. No one at home. ” Dial 101 if you know who planted the grass”, sayz Look East. Post-raid enquiries will be conducted by Joe Blow via the trombone – dial 101. Don’t bother with 999 – answer machine only on that number.

    Terrific piece of ante-raid surveillance fellas. Who runs Norfolk Constabulary? Why of course Lorne Greene, the Police and Crime Commissioner.

    His Mum named him after the ‘Bonanza’ series star, apparently. Perhaps someone should explain the facts of life to him. Bonanza bust indeed!

    Next time employ a couple of those volunteer civvy traffic spies you recruited and issued with speed guns, Lorne. Not only would they have clocked the comings and goings of the drug dealers, they could have nicked them for speeding simultaneously. Fuck my old brown boots! (FMOBB). How much do we pay these wankers aka ‘Police Chiefs’ these days? In my era I would have been sacked if I executed a warrant at a house where nobody was at home. Get a grip, you sloppy kuntz! You bring shame on the Cuntstabulary.

  307. Sorry, Herbert, the barbarian was absent from the OB crowd down in London yesterday, failed to lend support to Tommy in person, something as mundane as the need for a window replacement prevented it, the guy doing the job turned up (was supposed to be here next week, got it wrong).

    Still, in the radio they said the crowd was bigger than before, as it should have been. The court’s decision puzzles, it would be in the best interest of the governing elite to end it quick, don’t you think?

    (As Baron was typing ‘in person’, the bleeding pred-softaware changed it to ‘infernos’, more than frustrating, the fugging youngsters’ ‘improvements).

  308. Here’s an example of how easy it is to express what we think.

    A day or two before, Baron posted something on the Spectator site, a couple of hours later checked on it, discovered plenty of errors, clicked on the edit button, corrected the wrongs, clicked on ‘save edit’. Nothing. Impossible to re-post even with about half a dozen clicks spaced over half an hour. In the end, Baron copied the stuff, did another posting afresh, that went in quickly, no problema. Weird that.

    Here’s the posting:

    We’ve reached, quite unexpectedly perhaps, a kind of historic crossroads, we either protest, insist on transparency and stuff, possibly impose sanctions, or sweep it under the carpet, as the tinpot dictator of Turkey is doing right now, and as we’ve done with the Saudis’ other recent blatant criminality, swallow our pride, keep business going (hopefully without shouting about shared values, the closeness of aims in tackling religious extremism bla, bla..)

    However much Baron dislikes saying it, the prudent step would be the latter, it furnishes money and jobs, the former doesn’t, in fact the former could lead to consequences far beyond the investigation of a heinous murder. If the Saudis do a u-turn, price oil in a currency other than the dollar, join with Russia and China, a war would be hard to avoid.

    Everyone with any brain cells left must know it’s not the crown Prince, it’s the regime that stinks, short of removing the Full Monty of the hereditary tyranny nothing will change, another crown Prince will only furnish an excuse that ‘justice’ is seen to have been done, the Western plebs will be fooled once more until another crisis erupts, the corrupt governing elites of the West will pretend some more. What’s the point?’

  309. What’s happened to Malfleur? He would enjoy the following:

  310. The latest perv pretending to be women.
    Carrie Cooper, who used to go by the name of Gary, was jailed for seven and a half years after being found guilty of nine sexual assaults, which took place in Hertford.
    Despite identifying as a woman, Cooper has been serving time in male prisons HMP Parkhurst and HMP Littlehey.
    The Ministry of Justice has yet to confirm whether she will serve her sentence in a men’s jail.
    Cooper was previously jailed for 14 years in 2012 for raping a girl under the age of 14. The latest seven-and-a-half year term will be added to her current sentence.
    They obviously meant HIS.
    I think he should be allowed to pretend he’s a woman and put in a male prison , and then all the male prisoners can pretend he’s a woman as well.

  311. This is the Statement I sent to the court which led to the judge saying that it was no longer a straight forward case and needed to go to the Attorney General to review again. Read below and you will understand just how corrupt and political this prosecution has been. The press have not reported any of the facts below in their 5 months of attacks on me. #EnemyOfThePeple

    I am the defendant in these contempt proceedings, and the Court has served two allegations of contempt against me. This is one more than I faced in the Crown Court at Leeds.

    In relation to the first allegation, breaching the order of the court, which requires as I understand it an intention to interfere with the administration of justice, I would like to say this.

    Firstly, I would like to assure the court that undermining the court’s authority or interfering with the administration of justice was never my intention. I believed I acted in good faith within the parameters of the section 4 reporting restriction in place. The information I provided was in the public domain, factual and relevant but did not provide any details of the trial proceedings other than what had already been reported previously and was readily available online. I rely on the documents in my bundle as examples of what had previously been reported.

    When I arrived at Leeds Crown Court that morning I could not obtain any specific details of the reporting restriction order. I do not believe there is a website which holds such details, so I researched online and reviewed the reporting restriction guidelines provided. They state that the court should include details of reporting restrictions on the court listings both online and in court and also provide a notice on the door of the court. My solicitors have photographic evidence to show that the court did not follow these guidelines that day and had no details listed anywhere of a reporting restriction for that case. This is also in the bundle. The only time the notification about reporting restrictions was available was later that afternoon after the Court had convicted me and sent me to prison. Only then did the Court follow the guidelines and list a reporting restriction against the court listings for both the grooming case and my subsequent case.

    After my previous experience with contempt of court in Canterbury I went out of my way to ensure I would not fall foul of the law again. I privately paid for training with one of London’s leading law firms, Kingsley Napley, to cover all details regarding contempt of court. There is documentation in relation to this in my bundle.

    On that morning at Leeds Crown Court I had knowledge of the verdicts of the first phase of this grooming trial and many of the specific details discussed in court for this particular trial. I did not talk about these in my livestream on that day. I had understood based on my training that the specifics of the case and the verdicts were off limits for reporting restrictions.

    Having been unable to obtain any details from the court on the conditions of the reporting restriction I decided to review the guidelines for reporting restrictions. On the Judiciary’s website there is a practical guide aimed at judges and the media on the statutory and common law principles that should be applied with regards to reporting restrictions. The paper was called ‘Reporting Restrictions in the Criminal Courts April 2015 (Revised May 2016)’. In this paper it stated that Courts have no power under s.4(2) of the Contempt of Court Act 1981 to prevent publication of material that is already in the public domain (see page 27 of this document).

    I followed my training and this guidance to the letter. I did not divulge any of the previous case verdicts, did not detail any specifics mentioned in the trial, did not assume guilt and refrained from entering court property. I even asked the officer outside the court where the court boundaries were and that I was ok to film where I was to which he confirmed.

    I also followed that guidance document issued on the Judiciary website informing me that I could only reference information that was already in the public domain. Every single thing I said that day was already in the public domain. I actually read charges and names of the defendants from a BBC article which to this day is still live on their website. I also made sure not to film anyone other than the defendants, I was calm and respectful throughout.

    It is my understanding that there is no individual in the last 60 years that has been sentenced to prison for a publication breach of a reporting order. It would appear to me that my previous punishment was exceptional. I would ask that I am treated in the same manner as every other journalist who has been charged with these allegations. The journalist Rod Liddle was writing for the Spectator magazine in relation to the Stephen Lawrence murder trial, and when he was sentenced for breaching the section 4 order, and risking prejudice to the trial, was given a fine. Journalists at the Daily Mail and the Daily Mirror published highly prejudicial material on the trail of Levi Bellfield who abducted and murdered an 11-year-old child. This contempt of court led to the collapse of the entire case and discharge of the jury and robbed one of his victims of the chance for justice. The reporters in this instance were not prosecuted and instead their employers were found guilty of contempt and fined £10,000.

    I have reviewed the transcripts from Leeds Crown Court where the Judge was discussing various reporting order breaches. The judge and the CPS discuss the fact that multiple news sources breached the very same order placed on my trial with some breaching both the reporting orders by mentioning the grooming trial as well as my arrest and prison term. Lizzie Dearden the home affairs correspondent at the Independent actually refused to remove the article when provided with the order stating that the effect of social media voids reporting restrictions, so she could not be held in contempt of court. The CPS and the judge agreed that these breaches of the order were a matter for the Attorney General to review.

    When I was informed of the blanket order, I offered to delete my video immediately. Despite the multiple breaches of the order by different newspapers that weekend and the flat refusal of Lizzie Dearden to take her article down, not one of those journalists or the editors of those publications, were ever arrested or prosecuted for s.4(2) of the Contempt of Court Act.

    According to the court transcript the newspaper breaches of the reporting order was a matter for the Attorney General. My case was not referred to the Attorney General for review and instead I was hauled into court immediately, refused my own choice of legal representation, prosecuted, and convicted in a matter of minutes in what the Court of Appeal regarded as a flawed trial. I was then imprisoned for over 2.5 months in solitary confinement until I won the appeal. I was held against my categorisation, moved to the highest Muslim population Cat C prison, subjected to mental torture and constant threats and abuse and had all of my rights removed in the interest of prison safety.

    It is clear to me that my continued prosecution and heavy-handed tactics from the state is because of ‘who I am’ rather than ‘what I did’.

    In relation to the second allegation, the strict liability allegation, I would like to say this.

    It is only since my original trial that there has been an additional charge added suggesting that the contents of my livestream were prejudicial to this case. The case completed, the jury concluded, and the verdicts were given. I would like to state clearly that in the transcript from the original trial the judge discussed my video with Mr Wright QC, prosecution counsel. Having reviewed the content of my video Mr Wright stated in court: ‘There is nothing they could have seen that could in any way prejudice them against the defendants’. Judge Marson agreed on the record.

    For this reason, (a) I cannot see why I should face two charges when the core of the allegation in front of Judge Marson was the breach of the section 4(2) order, other than because I am regarded as a political activist and the charges are motivated by my political activism, and (b) I do not accept that the material that was livestreamed created either a real or substantial risk of prejudice to the Leeds proceedings. The prosecution counsel and the Judge both agreed on the court transcript that my live stream could not have prejudiced the jury.

    Everything I reported that morning was fair and accurate and published in good faith within the constraints of the judiciary’s guidelines for the media.

    I will address each point in the additional allegation drafted by the Advocate to the Court.

    The first allegation is that I suggested the defendants were involved in wider criminal activity. This is not correct. I was referring to two reports, one on the radio and one in the Huddersfield Examiner which set out the allegations relating to the 29 individuals. There is a similar report on the BBC relating to the allegations in the defence bundle.

    The second allegation is that stating that those of the same ethnicity and religion as the defendants were disproportionally likely to commit the crimes for which the defendants were being tried could prejudice the trial.

    This statement is factually correct. The Quilliam foundation who are a Muslim run anti extremism think tank have produced a research paper looking at convictions of this type 1 street grooming from 2005 – 2017. This is in the defence bundle. They found that 84% of all convictions were south Asian with the significant majority of those being Pakistani Muslim. All of these victims were white children.

    Sajid Javid the Home Secretary himself announced on BBC news this year that in these types of street grooming trials the individuals convicted are from a disproportionately Pakistani background.

    Nazir Afzal is the former head of the Crown Prosecution Service in the north west of England and a lead prosecutor on child sexual abuse and he also publicly stated on Channel 4 News that Asians and Pakistanis in particular are disproportionately involved in this type of street grooming. He also presented these facts in front of Parliament.

    I merely stated factual insight into the ethnicity and religious make up of perpetrators of these types of crimes. I repeated publicly available research papers from the Quilliam Organisation, testimony from the former head of Crown Prosecution Service in the Northwest and a statement from the Home Secretary himself all three of which are in fact Pakistani Muslims themselves.

    I do not accept that reporting facts on the ethnicity or the make-up of particular offender groups could be categorised as contempt of court given the number of grooming gang trials currently in progress across the United Kingdom and the commentary on those facts which are widely discussed in the media.

    The third allegation is that highlighting as significant the sexual references of the abuse that I had elicited from the defendants could prejudice the trial.

    I asked each of the defendants what their views were on their verdict they were expecting to hear that day. All 3 of them separately made aggressive vulgar sexual references or sexual threats against both my mother and my wife. I did not ask the defendants to comment on their views of my wife and mother, they did this out of the blue. Repeating what they actually said in the video has no relevance or prejudice on the trial itself.

    The fourth allegation is that I made derogatory comments about the ethnic or religious backgrounds of the defendants.

    I would like to point out I was not talking about the specific defendants on trial I was referring to reaction I had received by family and friends of previous convicted grooming gangs. By derogatory comments it appears to mean telling the truth that under Islamic law, the “age of consent” coincides with puberty. In Islam there is no set age for marriage. The Islamic Prophet Muhammad, who is said to serve as a role model for every Muslim, is reported by Sunni Hadith sources to have married Aisha when she was six or seven years old, with the marriage consummated when she was nine years old and he was 56 years old. The prosecution may not like to hear the truth but there is no way that sharing the truth and facts about a particular religion on social media can lead to prejudice on a trial.

    In relation to the fifth allegation, a number of the comments relied on were made by other people, and my comments related to grooming trials generally across the country rather than the particular case (e.g. the exchange at page 8 of the transcript of the livestream related to Rotherham, and Oxford). I made it clear throughout that the trial concerned allegations.

    The nature and number of these ongoing trials, prosecutions and investigations is highly alarming and I believe it is in the public’s interest to hear the details and know of the complexities and connections amongst the previous prosecutions.

    The future safety of vulnerable children at risk is my concern here not the perceived prejudice towards the defendants because of their ethnicity or religion. If 29 white Christian priests were on trial on such charges with reporting restrictions, I would feel exactly the same.

    When I initially went to report on the Canterbury trial I did so in what I felt was the public interest. The police had DNA evidence on all four of the now convicted child rapists, yet the decision was made to grant these individuals bail. They were still running the same take away shop and coming into contact with young school children. One of the defendants absconded to Afghanistan. With DNA evidence on each of the now convicted child rapists it was my belief that they should have been remanded to prison until trial in order to protect vulnerable children in the surrounding area. Instead the decision was made to release them back into the community on bail.

    The same danger was placed on the children in case in question. The now convicted child gang rapists on trial in Leeds that day were also free to walk the streets on bail. There were 18 different witness statements detailing the rape and torture of those children and yet the justice system decided that they did not pose a risk to the public and granted them bail.

    Just like the Canterbury case one of these child rapists in the Leeds trial on also absconded before his verdict was reached. I believe he has fled to Pakistan and according to the court transcripts he was last seen leaving his house with a large bag. That is a convicted child rapist free to roam the streets because he was deemed no risk to the public and granted bail.

    I have previously been charged with a non-violent offence, and I was remanded straight to prison to await trial. At Leeds Crown Court in May this year, the police whisked me from the streets, I was subjected to a fundamentally flawed trial and then sent straight to prison inside 5 hours. This is all whilst the very same system allows alleged child rapists with multiple prosecution witness statements and DNA evidence implicating them in the crime to continue to walk the streets.

    The court has a duty to the victims and the public to protect them and telling them could help stop ongoing child sexual exploitation and maybe prevent future vulnerable children from falling victim to it.

    Again I would like to reiterate that undermining the judge, the court, the proceedings, the supremacy of the law or the administration of justice was never my intention, but I truly believe the reporting restrictions on this trial and subsequent connected trials are detrimental to the public and should never have been imposed so the public could hear the details, and use the knowledge of the proceedings to help prevent further cases such as these coming before the courts.

    The jurors are given a responsibility. They are aware of the consequences of researching the cases they sit on. It should be upon them and we should trust them to do the task with honesty and integrity; it should not be for the public to be kept purposely in the dark just in case they do not.


    Enough is enough, this political persecution has to stop. I am now hopeful that the Attorney General will take an unbiased view and discontinue this continued persecution.

  312. The above is Tommy Robinson’s statement to the Court yesterday and is reproduced in full.

  313. Noa
    October 24th, 2018 – 12:54

    Thanks for posting that. I think that the future of the current Tory Party quite possibly depends on how their Attorney General deals with the referral.

    If he decides to continue the persecution, he will certainly drive away a great many voters who would otherwise vote Tory. What rational voter can vote for a British government that has frightening similarities to that of Saudi Arabia? Think “Khashoggi” and then think “Tommy Robinson”.

  314. Message to The Speaker of The House : come outside and say that (where the Laws of Libel can be applied )

    Speaker Bercow makes virulent attack on Tommy Robinson in support of a Scots Nat MP.

    ( Hope I have got this web address correct )

  315. Mine above : click on the X in top right corner to read other Tweets from Gerard Batten , such as the claim from The SUN journalist that Tommy went from Court to a `boosie` lunch.

  316. If ever there was a man to lower the standards and traditional courtesies attributable to of the House of Commons, surely it must be Speaker Bercow.

    It is none of his business to instruct Members of the House of Lords whom they choose to invite as their guests. Moreover, his outburst is in such bad taste that he disgraces his own office.

    Perhaps even worse is that he is – in effect – brazenly trying to interfere with how the Attorney General should exercise the Attorney General’s functions.

  317. You may again disagree, Baron sticks to his view, the great Mark Steyn’s by far better writing than talking, here’s the proof.

    “…the concept of free speech exists for the speech you hate”. You try better it.

  318. Could it be that Lord Hain’s naming another member of the club of the ennobled as a sex pest was to detract from John Bercow’s transgressions in the House?

  319. Herbert Thornton @ October 24th, 2018 – 23:48


    Whatever one may think of Tommy, Herbert, he didn’t deserve to be attacked so viciously from the floor of the House, he cannot defend himself, has no chance to take the two to the law, it’s an open invitation to the MSM hyenas, whom it will be difficult to silence because Tommy will not be given sufficiently public platform.

    It may backfire though if the news of the slanderous outburst gets wide coverage, as it may do unless the media gets muzzled, be told to keep quiet about it, only the free media may give it a push, more people will learn about him and what he says, in the end his support may grow.

    It truly is a disgrace that the Speaker indulges in a character assassination of a subject of the Queen who is a free burgher, committed no crime punishable under the existing status, has every right to speak his mind. What has happened to this country, it’s hard to reconcile Britain as the cradle of democracy with the state we’re in today, but then again, if something like the Skripals affair may get orchestrated by the elites and their MSM poodles, one shouldn’t really be that shocked.

  320. Radford NG @ October 24th, 2018 – 23:33

    See B’s response to Herbert above, Radford.

  321. Noa @ October 24th, 2018 – 12:52

    That’s superbly crafted, Noa, he must have had alot of help. Let’s see what the Attorney General has to say.


    Painful to contemplate what “Western Civilisation” will look like in 2028. I fear that it will, by then, be a rancid clinker dangling around the anals of history.

    After watching this I incline to think it’s already happened –

  326. Are there still grounds for optimism 119 years later? I doubt it.
    How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

    A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

    Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.

    A good many of the Africans who live south of the equator understand and believe that too – from the experiences of their own recent ancestors. So do the Russians. But above all it is understood and is being acted on by the Chinese. No matter if all other civilisations succumb, China will never do so. We should all grasp this fact and give thanks for it.

    China’s not going to put up with this nonsense and I don’t blame them in the slightest.

    “Painful to contemplate what “Western Civilisation” will look like in 2028. I fear that it will, by then, be a rancid clinker dangling around the anals of history.”

    I see that the spellchecker got it right for a change

    It looks like history is going to need some of this:

    Surely all Rolf Harris has to do is to convert, and he’s a free man?

  332. There’s so much of gloom and doom about the state of the world future of Europe as it metamorphoses from a being a Christian continent into into an Islamic that it makes a nice change to read something a bit different – like this optimistic-sounding overview by Conrad Black.

    Black doesn’t discuss Islam much but I believe, from what he has written elsewhere, that he foresees a universal Islamic Reformation taking place. I hope he’s right, but I don’t share his optimism about Islam. I think he’s much more plausible when it comes to Trump.

    Anyway, here is his overview –

  333. Noa, 27th Oct

    Thank you very much indeed! I’ve got kitchen fitters in as I write and such consolation and escape was just what’s doctor ordered.

    Here’s an infectiously beautiful piece by Buxtehude, a recent and happy discovery for me, which I hope you will enjoy too.

  334. Thanks Herbert, that was very interesting.

  335. The budget is coming up, a fatuous exercise if ever there was one. Up an down the land there will be a weeping and a wailing, deploring the lack of resources, the favoured euphemism for money, a commodity not spoken of in polite circles as the word is far too vulgar. But vulgar or not there is plenty of the substance in the Government coffers. Unfortunately this money is not spent on the provision of essential services but pissed up against the wall in an effort to buy the next election. The waste on NGO’s, charities quangos et al is staggering, a monument to a professional political class dedicated to the destruction of the nation.

  336. Not all videos about the Tommy Robinson situation are clearly audible and lucidly presented, but this one has both those virtues –

  337. Stephen Maybury

    “The waste on NGO’s, charities quangos et al is staggering, a monument to a professional political class dedicated to the destruction of the nation… ”
    Since the end of the British Empire and the progressive loss of influence, territory, business opportunity and government which resulted the British elites have been struggling to find career opportunities for their second siblings and family idiots. Tin Pan Alley, Rock music and Carnaby Street fashion helped for a while, but there was a clear necessity to find sustainable replacements to the Armed Forces, the apostelic wing of the Church and the Colonial and Foreign Services.
    Fortunately the EU and the International Aid and Charity-I do business attained sufficient muturity in time for the Blairites and Cameroons to seize on the opportunity to fund their useless offspring at the taxpayers expense.

  338. Thanks Irishboy, I thoroughly enjoyed that.

  339. EC
    Rolf Harris?
    Perhaps he could claim Parliamentary privilege…

  340. I posted this a matter of minutes ago, but it then disappeared so I’m trying again –

  341. I have no idea of the actual identity of the people who planned and organised the killing of Khashoggi, but I think we can all agree that must have been done in order to silence him.

    Whether the reason for silencing him was political or religious I don’t know, but in the Islamic world politics and religion are so intertwined that it is virtually impossible for people like us to rationally analyse it all.

    But just as we can agree that it was done to silence him, so too I think we can agree that the people concerned must also be both extremely wealthy and utterly ruthless.

    At this point we should also ask ourselves – since the killing seems to have been carried out on the premises of a Diplomatic Mission, is there any reason to believe that the same people would refrain from using their wealth to procure the killing of anyone else they want to silence – anywhere else in the world?

    It makes me also ask – can the killing and silencing of Khashoggi and the attempt by similarly unscrupulous people in Britain to procure the death of Tommy Robinson in order to silence him possibly be connected?

  342. Godders’ “Pre-Budget Thoughts!”

    £8,500 would be a most welcome tidy sum to me, but a mere bagatelle to the likes of Baron, Noa, and the Champagne socialist troll, methinks.

  343. EC October 29th, 2018 – 17:25

    Godders may, as he so modestly tells us “know a thing or two about finance…”, but he also knows damn well that he can’t give a cheque for £8,500 to every household in the country, because:
    1. It would have to be post-dated for at least 5 years, as he is mixing current and future tax revenue receipts.
    2. Over half the families in the country are already in receipt of ‘benefits’. (i.e that’s your and my taxes).
    3. So, on Godder’s logic, we taxpayers should not be increasing the benefits claiments’ largess, but getting a £25,500 tax rebate spread over the next 8 years.

    I hope that will keep you in Jennings a bit longer EC. 😉

  344. Trader/analyst Gregory Mannarino explains why this market is coo coo in an interview with Greg Hunter at USA Watchdog. Some excerpts:

    This is an environment of extreme fakery. I believe they are going to keep this going until they can’t do it anymore. If you are looking for the real issue, you don’t want to look at the stock market. You want to look at the bond market first.

    There is no global recovery. We reflated a debt bubble around the world. You can’t borrow your way into prosperity anywhere. Everything is being propped up on the back of the debt bubble, which is a financial Frankenstein.

    We are going to have a correction to fair value.

    If you took every single bubble that we’ve had in the past and put them all on top of each other, we are still not reaching the magnitude of this one. This is going to be it, and we are going to watch a systematic destruction of the middle class. We are going back to a two-tier society.

  345. The ungrateful children of the British Empire should remember who to thank for their freedom.

  346. To break the monotony of the usual topics, here’s something that may help you to listen to an expert opinion with not a pinch of salt, but a shovel of it.

    Have a look at the first link, note on it that at the beginning of 2016 the oil price hit the bottom, well below $30 per barrel. Then just scan the price trajectory since then. That’s all you have to do.

    Go to click on the other link, it’s Bob Dudley, the boss of BP, one of the majors in the industry, a man in the know, someone invited invariably by the MSM poodles to pronounce on the future, amongst other things, the price of oil in January 2016. Listen to him, it won’t take too much of your time, in order to agree with the barbarian about the value of an expert opinion.

  347. EC @ October 29th, 2018 – 17:25

    How dare you, EC, eight and a half thousand quid isn’t pocket money even for the ‘stingily rich’ barbarian, he’s retired now, you know, has to count every penny.

    On a marginally more serious note, the £8,500 could be spent even better if the Chancellor were to announce a scheme Baron labels ‘The Troika’, just to show that not only Novichok could be a useful addition to the OED.

    Does Baron hear you asking ‘what’s the bloody Troika”? Well, it’s a business enterprise scheme where each of the three parties participate equally (it that makes sense mathematically).

    An individual, a bank and the last one of the three, the State each put in an equal amount of money to start a new business, the individual is there because he has the idea of it, the bank to assess the project’s viability, furnish any further credit the business may need, and the State to back it up from the start which is almost always the trickiest phase of any start-up. If the business gets successful, the company would get listed, the State may either keep its share in it, or flog it, the bank could do the same. The country will benefit more than if each household were to get £8,500 because that’s just one off, if the money were deployed in the Troika business it would provide a stream of income (plus capital growth) for years.

    Many people have an idea of a business, are reluctant to invest their full savings or mortgage their abode. This Troika idea would have taken a substantial burden from the future Jobs or Bezoses at the most critical tome, no?

  348. John birch. @ October 30th, 2018 – 06:30

    Good point, John, the guy’s that is.

    Are you aware there’s something called PPT at the Fed in the Republic? You know what this Plunge Protection Team does?

    They buy shares in companies when the market is the bear mode e.g. right now, in a way that furnishes the biggest bang for whatever it takes to spend, they wait until the market is about to close, then they hit the button or buttons, buy big, push the share prices of the selected companies up, creating a perception that buying hasn’t dried up, it’s just waiting to pounce.

    It’s hard to be critical of the operation except for one thing. The team has virtually unlimited resources, the Fed can print as much money as is needed to keep the operation going. The rationale is simple. If one looks at the stock market chart in the past, whatever was the length of any bear market, the beast has aways recovered, and then always goes beyond the last peak. As the recovery in the share prices happens, the PPT keeps unloading the paper, could even make a profit.

    What else will they come up with, heh?

  349. John birch. @ October 29th, 2018 – 12:19

    Nobody was listening in 1991, John, and still nobody listens today.

  350. Herbert Thornton @ October 29th, 2018 – 01:05

    Tommy may be a pain in the ar$e, Herbert, but he doesn’t know anything that could harm the governing elites in the court of the public opinion, and, Britain isn’t Saudi Arabia, not yet anyway, no?

  351. Herbert Thornton @ October 28th, 2018 – 17:54

    The same clip was posted on another blog, Herbert, an interesting angle, but not that convincing.

    Anyone can slice the court decision to refer the case to the Attorney General any way one likes, Herbert, Baron’s not a lawyer, reckons it was done because the farce of Tommy’s hounding is that of politics rather than anything the courts should deal with.

    One may argue that a contempt of court is something the judiciary should address, but it, the contempt of court charge, only arose because of a political decision to arrest Tommy (regretfully backed by a politicised judge).

    If the Attorney General were smart, he would drop the case altogether.

  352. stephen maybery @ October 28th, 2018 – 16:31

    You should not be that critical of the budget, stephen, there’s a billion to our Armed Forces to counter the evil Russians trying to harm our democracy. One wonders what the money will be spent on (the military budget is around £35n), probably not on the welfare of the girls and boys, but on clandestine operations to over-cyber Putin and his GRU clowns. Serves the Kremlin Tzar right, he shouldn’t have poisoned the Skripals.

    Talking about the Salisbury affair, here’s a guy who seems determined to break the official narrative come what may. Why? The matter’s finished, closed, nobody’s interested in it any more, the harm has been done by the process, however bizarre the story may be.

  353. What has happened to Malfleur?

  354. One of the sites Baron occasionally visits is the Saudi Gazette, the clip comes from their rich offerings of how well islam’s doing, you may enjoy it, (but then you may not). mosques and sharia courts

    And this:

    Apologies to those whose ears aren;t used to convoluted English, but what would one expect from poorly educated Slav?

  355. This guy’s incredible, but missed that almost 17mn Muslims live in Russia, roughly 12% of the population of the country.

  356. Baron October 30th, 2018 – 21:05

    “Tommy may be a pain in the ar$e, Herbert, but he doesn’t know anything that could harm the governing elites in the court of the public opinion, and, Britain isn’t Saudi Arabia, not yet anyway, no?”

    I don’t follow your argument. I should have thought that Tommy is certainly exposing the extreme failure of the British governing elite to effectively deal with the tide of grooming & gang rape that young working class British girls outside London are having to endure.

    As for his being no threat to the elites of countries like Saudi Arabia, I agree that he isn’t a “threat” in our sense of the word but their elites (and much of their populations) look at what he says rather differently. For example, Salman Rushdie wasn’t a “threat” to them in our sense of the word but nonetheless he was subject to a Fatwa calling for his assassination and needed to be given police protection.

    Since then our own elites have become so morally debased that if a Fatwa were issued by some Mullah in either Saudi Arabia or Iran calling for Tommy to be assassinated, our own Police would be “discouraged” from interfering. Even worse, not only our own Police, but the BBC, most of the newspapers, and even a good many in our Judiciary would be happy to leave him to his fate.

  357. Herbert Thornton @ October 31st, 2018 – 18:27

    ‘ …. Tommy is certainly exposing the extreme failure of the British governing elite to effectively deal with the tide of grooming & gang rape that young working class British girls ….’

    Absolutely, Herbert, he is, one can speculate whether he’s been going at it the right way, it’s again everyone’s judgment, what one can hardly deny is his personal courage.

    The point the barbarian was making contrasting him with the murdered Saudi was different. Everyone or virtually everyone here knows about the grooming, the ineffective response by those who govern us. Tommy’s just one of a number highlighting it, others have chipped in, too, even some of the MSM poodles got on the act e.g. in the DM.

    You may think otherwise, but Baron reckons not that many are fully in the picture about the medieval barbarity of the tribe populating the sand dunes, more to the point about their complicity in 9/11, the use of phosphorous bombs in Yemen, possibly other nasty things. The murder of K may have been committed to prevent him from not just talking about theses things, but also furnishing hard evidence, which you must admit is not the case of Tommy, who talks about the problem, the evidence of which is already out in the open.

    AS you well know Baron’s been as critical as many others of the governing elites, the top layers of the agencies of state you mention would fall in the category, but he reckons the rot hasn’t yet reached the bulk of the rank and file, these people have no choice, have to obey orders, but one hopes they would not go as far as leaving Tommy to his fate if he were in real danger.

  358. The Turks have said today that the preparation of the K’s murder began after his first visit to the consulate on March 28, they intercepted telephone calls between the consulate and Saudi Arabia’s capital, noted the recall of the Consul to Riyadh for consultations, gathered other evidence suggesting K may a be target.

    Does it not make them complicit in the murder? They knew, or perhaps just suspected things may turn nasty, why haven’t they warned K?

  359. One of the Douglas’s best, if you cannot get it, Baron will copy it for you.

  360. Totally unconnected with anything that smells of politics.

    Does anyone has any good knowledge of Goggle’s Mail? Baron has a number of e-mail addresses, when he tries in Accounts to set them to use with Mail, Contacts, Calendar Messages the system refuses to register his ticking the ones he wants for one e-mail address, the most important ones i.e. Mail and Contacts. (If you follow this explanation).

    Can anyone offer a solution, or a hint to it, please?

  361. Baron
    October 31st, 2018 – 22:05

    “ …. Everyone or virtually everyone here knows about the grooming….the evidence is already out in the open”?

    I find that rather hard to accept. . How can anything be really out in the open when people are afraid to talk about it because they are likely to be accused by the Police of “Hate Speech” if they do? The BBC and most newspapers and politicians seem very reluctant to even mention it and the Establishment and their hangers-on occupying various public offices clearly want it to be kept under wraps…

    I personally have anecdotal evidence for saying that it isn’t “out in the open” because my wife has several old friends in Britain with whom she exchanges letters. One of them, a well educated woman who certainly lives in what’s called Polite Society, has said that she has heard very little about either groomings or rapes or about somebody called Tommy Robinson…

  362. An update, round-up and reminder:

    Lest we forget and become complacent as we squabble over ‘Brexit’ (aka – “Bullshit” – never gonna happen; too many snouts in the trough; too many shysters with vested interests involved) and get distracted by Hooter Hammond’s smoke and mirrors budget speech. As most of us have asserted here for two decades, the soft infiltrative jihad is by far the more successful ploy than the explosive violence of terrorism, which has been and remains counter-productive.

    “The smile on the face of the tiger!”

  363. I’m not for a second suggesting that Tommy Robinson has a character in any way resembling that of Whitey-Bulger.

    What I am drawing attention to are the words “They let him get hit.”

    Can there be much doubt that the same intention was behind the imprisonment of Tommy Robinson?

  364. Despite the chorus of half-witted, politically correct, weeping and wailing that this will no doubt produce in the west, it is gratifying to see that China continues, in the face of crude barbarism, to be a beacon of common sense –

  368. Will someone please tell Baron whether he’s dreaming, or is this really for real?

  369. Radford NG @ November 2nd, 2018 – 03:06

    If it’s free, by all means one can go for it, Radford, however, one can get the Full Monty of the DT in the printed form spending £10 at Waitrose, the boss insists Baron gets it, seldom even scans it, just flips the pages because there’s no naked news, it’s all skewed to promote the project of the progressives.

  370. The Donald is planning to quit two more international organisations, what’s the real motive for it is hard to say, the barbarian fears that if he continues to attack the status quo in this rather haphazard way whole existing structure of conducting business may eventually crumble, neither America nor the rest of the world will benefit.

  371. Herbert Thornton @ November 1st, 2018 – 00:36

    You may like to know, Herbert, there are many in today’s Britain who know not who the PM is, that’s either sad, if one hopes to change things, or encouraging, if one accepts that one can do FA to change things.

  372. Herbert Thornton @ November 1st, 2018 – 16:31

    The barbarian admits, Herbert, that until he read your link he didn’t know who Whitey-Bulger is, or rather was.

  373. What has shaken the barbarian more than the K’s murder in Istanbul is the reaction to the latest of the blasphemy case in Pakistan. On a TV channel TRT World (?) the crowds must have numbered in the tens of thousands, the anger was visible, the message frightening ‘no forgiveness, she must be killed’.

    If Baron’s right we have a large number if immigrants from these lands, how many of those living amongst us harbour similar thoughts?

  374. On a lighter note something for the connoisseurs of music.

    You may not have heard of this girl, only 20 now, started singing at 12, born in Germany to Slovak parents, lives in Czech Republic in Ostrava (quite awful, used to be the regional centre of a mining district), looks quite good, too.

  375. Baron,
    You are right, many of those immigrants have similar thoughts. This is not blind prejudice on my part, I have lived and worked in Pakistan and can vouch from persona; experience to the fanaticism of the populace, do not forget that Pakistan means land of the pure. That tells you all you need to know, along with the fact that they have brought all their primitive instincts with them. Incidentally Pakistan is one of the most corrupt countries on Earth, another tribal foible they have brought with them. Gawd ‘elp us.

  376. Baron. November 2nd, 2018 – 21:56

    “…If Baron’s right we have a large number if immigrants from these lands, how many of those living amongst us harbour similar thoughts?”

    My dear Baron, how dare you refer to my fellow Northerners, especially those from Yorkshire and Lancashire, in such a disparaging manner?
    Why, the kebab shops of Blackpool would be closed and the taxi ranks of Rotherham empty, if it was not for the sterling efforts of these sturdy yeomen of the Indian plains, who at the specific behest of successive Tory and Labour governments have sacrificed their own homes and farms in the sub continent to come here and help the mother country.
    Is that the kind of insult and humiliation their patriotic response is to suffer? Criticism for their religious devotion? Suspicion for their kindly behaviour towards women even though they of a different faith?
    For shame! How inhospitable we English zenophobes, we Little Englanders, can be to theseinnicent folk!

  377. Aah Dear Baron, it’s all a cunning plan.

    When the excrement finally hits the air-propulsion device and Arthur rises from the grave calling all good men to arms, the followers of the pedophile will be easy to spot by their location and appearance and hence easy to slaughter. They drive others out of the areas and the nations where they dwell so we will know where to find them; they gather together on Fridays in masses, showing us their presence; they point their arses to the skies 5 times a day providing our drones with ready targets.

    As they themselves did in India and numerous other places, the streets will run red, the sky will be filled with smoke and flames and the earth will be once again purified of this vile cult.

    I have faith that, when the time is right, they, their supporters and apologists will cease to be a problem by their absence from the planet.

    And we all know that global warming is a result of too many people swarming across the face of the earth, so two problems solved in one.

  378. Clear Memories @ November 4th, 2018 – 07:44

    This, CM, worries the poorly educated Slav, too, it’s often he thinks about it, the indigenous tribe has been treated badly by those in governance, the anger, the frustrations, the infuriation with things have been building up for years if not longer, it all remains muzzled and contained at present, but when something triggers the realise valve – Baron’s favourite spark is an economic slowdown – one would be well be advised to stay as far away from it was possible. The mob knows no mercy.

    One can only hope things will not go as far as you suggest, the best way to face up to the climate change is to adapt to it, no?

  379. Noa @ November 3rd, 2018 – 16:23

    Fancy you saying that, Noa, until you’ve opened his eyes the barbarian was under the impression that people of the North eat mostly deep fried Mars bars, seldom wash, and speak in a language few notches less recognisable as English than Baron’s.

  380. stephen maybery @ November 3rd, 2018 – 14:41

    You are close to what we’ll all be getting soon, stephen, you will be in demand to instruct us what to do and what to avoid when the time comes, heh, heh, heh.

  381. Baron 08.59

    Fancy that!
    I didn’t know you’d ever been to Manchester, Leeds, Blackburn, Bradford or Dewsbury.

  382. Absolutely Baron, lets adapt to it by removing a large part of the problem – too many people!

    This is the fact nobody will face up to. There are too many humans on the planet and that number has to be reduced. All of the lies of the global-warmers are actually addressed if you reduce the population. We used to have wars and diseases to reduce numbers but now we over-protect combatants and waste endless sums fighting diseases. Somebody recently inquired “What does Africa gives us (apart from Aids, Ebola and famine) that the 6’o’clock news wouldn’t miss?”

    Aside from f**k all, I don’t have an answer to that.

  383. A friend of Baron sent it, admitted the barbarian was right about who started the murderous mayhem in Syria (he argued a different case). It’s not even this particular issue but the site itself that’s of interest.

    Have you eve r come across this chap Dore?

  384. Those who run things are working on the problem, CM @ 9:15:

    The names you mention, Noa @ 9:14 sound familiar, but the barbarian prefers to stay in the civilised part of the country? It may be overcrowded, polluted, inhabited by many people with strange habit of sticking up their bottoms each Friday, but it’s closer to escape routes to the Continemnt.

    No time to carry on, breakfast of kippers awaits, the barbarian’s been called he’s still in bed) ‘for the last time, if you don’t come down …’

  385. My dear Baron,
    You are right to stay near to your escape routes, barring the odd peaceful German or Russian invasion or two Eastern Europe seems to offer the safest future in the near to medium term.
    Reminder to Ark Chief of Staff, investigate EE estate property prices with view to purchase.

  386. Baron,
    I am closer than you think to what is coming. Yesterday on leaving my building I was confronted by three men, not noticeably Anglo-Saxon. Open open they snarled, I looked them strait in the eyes and instructed them in the use of the word ‘Please’ They immediately deflated and addressed me as sir. It is no use grovelling to these people, they only take it as weakness. As you can see, I survived to fight another day.

  387. Good on you, stephen, but be careful, avoid huge muscular men, one never knows.

  388. Frederico hit the nail well, that’s exactly the barbarian’s take on things between the Republic and the Saudis from the first to the last word.

  389. He was missed when he holidayed in China, this is his first re-entry into the contemporary circus of world politics.

  390. This cartoon in the NYT isn’t the smartest way to fight the Donald in the mid-terms, not even many of his opponents would easily endorse the deployment of the US military in a far away region of which the majority of ordinary Americans know next to nothing, couldn’t probably find it on the map, and more to the point, don’t give a shite.

  391. Noa, November 5th, 2018 – 12:48

    Mr Melanie Phillips is undoubtedly a fine lawyer, probably better than most, well versed finer points of the law and nuanced interpretations thereof. However when the chips are really down then “who you gonna call?” Howard Greenberg! He has a record second to none…

  392. Woodpile report.

    art-remus-ident-04.jpg What’s happened to survival websites? It’s not just the offensive popups, the finger-wagging about cookies, or the blackout if yer running an ad blocker. It’s the content. What kind of survivalist writes about dental floss for dogs? After all, you don’t eat the teeth. Nor will solar powered sprinklers be uppermost in your mind when the Death Squads For Democracy are hunting you in the hills.

    “Keep it simple, stupid” used to be the common wisdom. Survivalism was mainly what you carried between your ears, not in your pack. It came from hard experience, not from Amazon. Survivalism was understood to be an in extremis proposition where death was the probable outcome even for the skilled and prepared. Now it’s country living with endearing retro practices from grandma’s day, a sort of Better Homes and Gardens for Inconvenient Times.

    The Nearing’s adventure is the unalloyed endpoint of preparationalism, a worthy goal no one can legitimately gainsay. Such an attitude could see entire communities of like minded people through hard times. It puts things in their proper order. But back-to-the-land homesteading is more Thoreau than survivalism. Such preppers presuppose the Great Depression’s mannerly destitution rather than a Bosnia redux and thus own the same chancy assumptions as their neighbors.

    Lesser bad assumptions have also trickled unchallenged into preparationalism. For instance, even the federal health hucksters have dropped the notion that diet influences, in any significant way, a person’s cholesterol level. And other than a few outliers, there is no negative link of any consequence between cholesterol and heart health. A decades-long study in England has concluded that statins are not only useless for any other than a small subset of the population, but actually contraindicated. Yet allegedly knowledgeable preppers offhandedly repeat baseless bromides to condemn the healthiest and most necessary of foods, fats namely.

    I knew a bad end was assured the first time I saw food labeled “low calorie”. A people who intentionally degrade food has lost sight of shore. But wait, there’s more. Another assumption preparationalists choose to own concerns gluten. One, maybe two percent of the population is gluten intolerant, yet the supermarket shelves are full of pricey product that announce themselves as gluten free. Incredibly, another useful component of food is now officially a dangerous contaminant.

    These are merely the more recent examples of self-destructive nonsense. The more egregious are too well known to flog here, “no salt sodium free” for one and overhydration for another. Push it all into a pile and you have today’s wisdom. If nutritionists actually knew all there is to know about food, they’d have to wrap it up and find another career. Yet they keep making new “discoveries”, and at ever shorter intervals, which means the half-life of their received truths is also shorter. They’d have us believe last year’s approved diet will kill us this year before we can push away from the table.

    Sometimes I despair of the nonsense otherwise sane people can believe until I remember, they’ll be my competitors when the SHTF. And no, survivalists are not a brotherly band, nor can they be. Relying on survivors I have known, of slave labor camps for one, survivalists are not selfless patrons looking to pitch in for the common good. The root word “survive” is the tip off. Preppers believe themselves to be goal oriented cooperatives, and they will be until the way ahead narrows and darkens and hard choices become no choices at all. Then they become survivalists.

    Mere hard times come to an end, and survivalism begins, when the word “hungry” reclaims its original meaning. Hunger is an experience that never leaves you, and in that sense it’s a gift. It’s the survivalist’s all-purpose knife for any Gordian Knot. It’s the supreme teacher, and it appears when the student is least ready. Hunger doesn’t value your preferences, nor does it arrive dressed in gingham with recipes to make shrimp creole more tastey. But be assured, you’ll recognize it when you see it.

  395. Watch the Jordan Peterson Diane Abbott show at 10.45 tonight.

  396. Good take on the midterm results, with lessons for us, too, ie the importance of a family.

  397. Possibly the biggest upset of the week:

    Mr Styxhexenhammer666 is the bearer of startling, possibly grave, news….

    “Oh Dear, How Sad, Never Mind!”

  398. The World at One on BBC Radio4 today devoted a large chunk of its airtime to the 100th anniversary of the Armistice Day, the saintly One in Belgium, then France, reporters homed on the first and the last soldier killed, other TV channels report on social media events commemorating the day, on special film screenings, open air concerts, and museum-wide days of remembrance in many towns and cities even villages, everywhere but virtue overflowing.

    The lessons learnt from WW1 should tell us to avoid another war …. the Great War that was to end all wars should be a warning to us all ….. the sacrifices in the First World War are a reminder not to repeat the same … reflections from the Great War remind us … the ending of the Great War on the 11th hour of the 11th should …..we will remember them …

    So how are the old protagonists doing, have they learnt the lessons, can the unwashed of the world be looking forward to lasting peace?

    The Republic inches to a trillion dollar military spending next year, the highest ever; Micron calls for a new EU military force; not to be undone, Russia’s scheduled to test a hypersonic glider which can deliver enough bang to sink and island the size of Britain; with planned 8% plus boost to its military budget China’s now the second biggest spender on its armed services after the US; INS Kalvari is the name of the first atomic submarine launched recently by India …

  399. Finally, the Russians decided to admit to it, and just as well, the Republic has today announced another wave of sanctions against the Putin’s fiefdom, the EU will obligingly follow, one hopes. Isn’t it time our armed forces lobbed few missiles into the lands of the recalcitrant tribe of the Russian muzhiks to stop them making fun of our just grievances against them?

  400. The omni-all one does more than abit of speculation about the Mueller’s charade, when will he, what will he, how bad will it be for the Donald. You should remember that after the Russians took over Crimea he was predicting, more than the, he was close to certain of the Russian boots in the whole of Ukraine, also Warsaw, and possibly Paris. He’s gone remarkably quiet and these boots, why is that?

    Pity you don’t speak Russian, here’re few charming lines that rhyme (in Russian) that sum him up nicely, he being the toothless old hag (the google translate messes it up, very loosely translated it says ‘speculations (tittle tattle, gossip) are flying around like flies, old toothless wizened women install them in the minds).

    “И словно мухи тут и там
    Ходят слухи по домам,
    А беззубые старухи

  401. Here’s a view by the semi bare chested guy on Sessions betting binned, he forgets one important issue that worries the American unwashed, that of health insurance for pre-existing conditions, at least this is what Baron’s friends from over there are telling him.

    Rod’s name change doesn’t convince the barbarian but if he were to identify as Uvuvwevwevwe Onyetenyevwe Ugwemuhwem Osas senior, he could claim to have a brother who is unquestionably black, everyone would then instantly agree he must be black, too.

  403. An historical incident (with no particular anniversary connection) .

    On 6 November 1865 crowds assembled on the waterfront at Liverpool to witness the Confederate raider , the CSS Shenandoah , lower her ensign ( as a matter of formality ) to surrender to the captain of HMS Donegal ( which happened to be in port at the time ).

    The ship had left Liverpool ,where she was registered, in September 1864 and been converted to a war vessel ; then she sailed eastwards . She was in the South Pacific preying on Yankey shipping when Lee surrendered on 9th April 1865 . In April and May other Confederate forces gave up whilst the Shenandoah went on to prey off of Yankey whalers off of Alaska . Finally realising from captured newspaper reports the war was over Captain Waddell sailed round Cape Horn back to Liverpool,being uncertain of the reception he would have got if he had surrendered to the Union forces.

    This was the last lowering of the Confederate flag.

    The British government gave parole to all the crew who dispersed ashore.The Shenandoah was sold on behalf of the US government to the Sultan of Zanzibar off of whose coast it was wrecked in a storm in 1866.

  406. Just for you, EC, but the postings, not as witty this time as the narrative, mostly saying ‘well done’, are hard to copy, you have to gowithoutthem.

    Why I’ve changed my name.

    Rod Liddle

    As someone who has recently discovered he is black, I have watched with incredulity the treatment doled out by the white liberal media to the theatre director Anthony Ekundayo Lennon.

    Like me, Anthony has shoved a name which sounds a bit exotic between his Christian name and his surname in order to convince people he is black. He has also said that while he does not have any African genes whatsoever, he feels black. That’s good enough for me, and it has proved good enough for organisations which bung people large sums of money on account of their skin colour — or what the individuals, on a whim, deem their skin colour to be. Anthony has been the recipient of part of a £406,500 grant for black and ethnic minority people and now occupies a role designated for a person of colour.

    I hope similarly to gain financially from my remarkable discovery, at the age of 58, that I am in fact black. Like Anthony I was teased as a child on account of my appearance. I also have a very strong sense of rhythm and am usually cheerful, both qualities which my mother told me were associated with people of African-Caribbean descent. My denial of my blackness I put down to the pressures imposed by a white supremacist society in which I have struggled to survive for so long. I am black — get over it. And gimme the money.

    The arguments from the liberals against Anthony (and thus, by extension, me) being black are hilarious. They claim, for instance, that he is not black at all, factually. Ah, but surely what matters is what he feels himself to be, no? Isn’t that the criteria we apply in other cases? Likewise, the assertion that he is diverting funds away from people who are truly deserving because they actually are black and that further to this he cannot be objectively black because however black he might think himself to be, he has not suffered as a black person has suffered: he does not have slavery and colonialism hanging around his neck, no matter how much he (and I, obvs) might identify with people who do.

    Does this argument from the left ring a bell with you? Imagine if Anthony did not identify as being black, but identified as being a woman and decided to call himself Antonia (which I suppose he may well do next week if he feels like it). Then, all of those objections would be rendered null and void by the liberals. He is not actually a woman? Doesn’t matter one bit. Indeed, his identification as a woman when he is palpably not a woman places him in an even more protected category than if he really were a woman. He hasn’t suffered sexual oppression as real women have? Nah, he has suffered more. He would get more grants flowing his way than a gay disabled Bengali dwarf.

    And this is despite the fact that Anthony’s maleness is far more easily provable and objective (it’s in the chromosomes, stupid) than his racial background. Anthony would be on a Labour all-women shortlist before you could say Valerie Solanas. He would have the support of the BBC and most of the mainstream media. Those who railed against him would be eviscerated as bigots and terfs.

    For the liberal left, then, one fatuous pretence is perfectly OK, while the other — a less obvious pretence, I would suggest — is not. I would further suggest that the reason for this is that progressives, as they like to be called, live not in the real world but in a sort of kindergarten fantasy where anyone can be whatever they want to be in a kind of glorious hierarchy of competing victimhoods, each one conferring a privileged status which must not be gainsaid. At least until reality intrudes — when the whole chimera falls to pieces because it is devoid of rationality, internal logic and common sense. And yet, so vociferous are the proponents of this fairy tale that even the Conservative party goes along with it.

    Such as, among others, Andrew Griffiths MP, the chap who ‘sexted’ a 28-year-old barmaid. Hell, we’ve all done that. I’m not sure that his dalliance should be a matter for anyone other than him, his wife and the barmaid. But I daresay that the barmaid will insist that she is a victim in all this, although why, I cannot pretend to understand. She’s 28! If you don’t like the bloke, tell him to get lost.

    But then Mr Griffiths himself clambered into spurious victimhood. He had been abused as a child, he told us all, and this was the consequence, the upshot. No it isn’t, matey, as you well know. Being abused as a child may be horrible, but it is not a life-defining experience, despite what the progressives might tell you. And it certainly does not provide you with an excuse to try to pork a barmaid. It is what you do that defines you, not what happened to you briefly decades ago.

    Being black does not define you, either, not even being black and having ancestors who 300 years ago were taken captive by the Ghanaian elite and sold to English slave traders. That should not impinge on you — and claiming it does makes you, to my mind, a charlatan and a chancer. Define yourself through your deeds and actions and understand that life is neither pristine nor fair.

    Incidentally, one of the main charges against the genuinely hilarious Anthony ‘Ekundayo’ Lennon is that far too few black and minority ethnic people run stuff in British theatre. Well, more than 10 per cent of artistic directors and chairmen are BME, and the BME population of the UK is 13 per cent. So that argument is another chimera, another fantasy.

    Interesting piece of marine memorabilia for the collectors of useless titbits, Radford, of which the barbarian’s one, he searched some more, the sale price was £17000-00, but sadly she was wrecked in a hurricane in 1872.

  408. Gerard’s house lost in the Paradise Ca wildfire.
    Strong support from his pals and punters:

    His innate talents, fortitude and stoicism, tested at death’s door not so long ago, will see him through this latest hazard and happenstance. Give him a shout in the comments to reflect a little international appreciation of his service to the blogosphere and to sympathise with the loss of his treasured possessions and the daily necessities. Good luck with your cauterised fresh start, Gerard.

    There another interesting thought with all this self v. societal defining. His name is Lennon, the same as Tommy Robinson, so does that define him as a closet right-wing bigot? Or as a crooner of dumb lets-all-love-each-other songs?

    Thanks for that.

    Sajid Javid today admitted that Britain needs more police officers to tackle the knife crime epidemic gripping the country’s streets.
    No, the black savages who are doing this need to be shot or start behaving as if they are civilised even if they have to pretend.
    A top American motorcycle racer many years ago caused an enormous fuss when he called the music they like nigger shit music.
    The fact he was 100% right was obviously totally ignored.

  412. As we suspected the Labour government knew long ago about the mass Muslim rape and prostitution of white children-and by telling local authorities to treat it as ‘informed consent’ tacitly condoned it.
    The present Government’s refuse to offer asylum to the Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi on the ground that it would incite riots amongst. Muslims is merely the latest example of tory dhimmitude.

  413. Ernie, EC? Hmmm

  414. John birch @ November 12th, 2018 – 15:29

    Every Tom, Dick and Jerry is on the act of the issue of rising crime currently, John, the item of stop and search, or rather the suggestion of an police officer that the condition for it should made less tight, was on the World at One on BBC Radio 4, too, the usual stuff, but the father of Damilola Taylor was also interviewed (you may recall the case, two very young boys killed his son with broken sheets of glass).

    To the genuine astonishment of the presenter, he said he himself asks police officers to do more stop and search, when asked if he would like to see more relaxed reasons for the police to action stop and search he agreed. Then he was asked whether it was the shortage of police officers because of the funding cuts that was the biggest problem. This is where the astonishment really kicked in, he said it was the breakdown in the family structure that sat at the core of the run away crime epidemic. The presenter killed the interview there and then, at a stroke.

    Here’s the thing. If one were to ask a sportsman specialising in high jump to perform it in a room of (say) 10feet, could he do it?

    That’s the same with crime. We’ve close to demolished either the effective tools, or the whole institutions that used to install good behaviour in children from within – the family, the school, the church – and we’ve also removed the measures that proved effective to control bad or criminal behaviour from institutions of law and order.

    The police ranks may be low in number, but they’re also potently ineffective because of the ‘uman rites’ laws, their hands are tied, they fear that some fanatical lobby group will clobber them if they look badly at a hooligan, they also fear they will be pilloried if they don’t by the law abiding burghers who’ve had enough of the soft approach to crime. No win for them really either way.

  415. Clear Memories @ November 12th, 2018 – 01:31

    You are looking at it from the wrong angle, CM, anyone claiming the membership of the phylum of the progressives can get away with self-identyfying whatever he feels like, the surname doesn’t come into it, it’s those with no membership of the club who get kicked.

  416. Something’s seriously wrong with the British MSM, very recently, the barbarian was getting his infusion of latte at Tesco’s Costa outfit, expropriated, temporarily, you understand, some of the papers on offer, scanned all of them, and to his horror, he didn’t find one single narrative, big or small, that informed of yet another atrocity committed by the evil Russians.

    Not a word, as if the Ruskies didn’t exist, as if their endeavours to further their imperialistic ambitions have stalled after the blood soaked takeover of Crimea, as if they ran out of Novichoks, poloniums, other killing tools to deploy in Syria against the suffering widows and orphans of the country so ably protected by the peace loving Americans …..


  417. Here’s Peter Hitchens on the recent armistice celebration, and what Baron chipped in (other contributors, not all, make better points, it’s worth scanning them).

    How could a man as erudite, wise and rational as you, Mr. Hitchens, get the Donald so wrong?

    Not that Baron shares all his views, applauds everything he’s done, or worships each word he utters, far from it, most of his utterances make one cringe, many of his views are suspect, and a number of his policies patently if not wrong than at least only temporarily helpful in curing the boils and warts the Republic suffers from.

    The key point however is different.

    Both the Donald and you are finding the current governing elites of the West beyond pale, he and you are critical of them hoping for a change. He does it his way, you yours. It’s this that matters more than an isolated episode or even a number of them.

    The man’s a demolisher, a wrecker of the Deep State, a destroyer of an ideology of the progressives that has unsettled and angered very many of the great unwashed of the West, has failed to make them happy, has not delivered. For this alone he should be supported, not chastened.

  418. Malfleut, where TF are you, the Mueller’s report’s due soon, we need your take on it.

  419. O’Reilly on Jim Acosta, the wanking voice of the Deep State, on the wanker’s sparring with the Donald. It only takes five minutes or so, O’Reilly explains very well the difference between the real journalists of the past and the Deep State poodles of the MSM. Well worth your time:

  420. Baron 22.35

    “…The man’s a demolisher, a wrecker of the Deep State, a destroyer of an ideology of the progressives that has unsettled and angered very many of the great unwashed of the West, has failed to make them happy, has not delivered. For this alone he should be supported, not chastened.”

    A thoughtful observation Mi’lud, as so often. I must confess hadn’t thought of the POTUS, supposedly the bastion of the US Government and indeed the World Order, as the Joseph Schumpeter, the ‘creative destroyer’ out of which a new order will arise.
    We must wait and see. And hope that you are right.

  421. If you want to amuse yourself with the top man of France with the penchant for half naked black bodies, this is for you:

  422. Noa @ November 12th, 2018 – 22:50

    You, young sir, never fail to astonish, fancy you know about Schumpeter?

    The guy was born not that far from the barbarian’s birthplace, but much earlier, of course. You may like to know, Baron came across his tome ‘Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy’ in Moscow, read it, almost all he remembers from the book is that it was the 3rd edition published in London in 1949 or 1950. That’s what Alzheimer does to one.

    It may be worthwhile for the barbarian to re-read the book, it always puzzled why it was Marx not Schumpeter the Left worships, the latter makes more sense, some of what he said came about eg ‘the aim of capitalism is to furnish silk stockings not just to the Queen, but to every girl or something like that’ (he missed the transgender breed though, heh, heh, heh).

    And thank you, still breathing.

  423. It’s not just for your dog or cat, you could have one, too. How long before it’s compulsory?

  424. Baron, the point I was, perhaps clumsily making, is the same – just because a party has an African-sounding name, doesn’t make him entitled to that identity. Were that to be the case, having the name Lennon would entitle the rest of us to call him a far-right bigot, the label attached to Tommy.

  425. Clear Memories @ November 13th, 2018 – 00:50

    Got it, CM.

  426. The buggering up of brexit, a triumph for our glorious Prime minister, How would I describe the woman? well I think Napoleons pejorative on Talleyrand is the most appropriate, shit in a silk stocking, which is closer to the truth than mother Teresa

  427. For those of us who haven’t noticed, there’s now a November Coffeehouse Wall.
