TTIP and the wrong focus

August 31, 2014 No Comments
By

This was interesting to find today, datelined August 29th: A new survey, conducted by YouGov on behalf of 38 Degrees, found that a further 39% think the controversial Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) “would be bad for the UK”, with just 13% saying it would have a positive effect. Today is the 31st and I only just completed mine, i.e. it only just arrived, so why bother sending it…

It’s almost game over in the Ukraine

August 29, 2014 2 Comments
By

What is coming through loud and clear from Russia is that Ukrainians are seen, within Russia, as brothers and sisters. My mate’s view over there is not unlike this Bloomberg writer’s: http://www.bloombergview.com/articles/2014-08-28/putin-has-changed-the-game-in-ukraine A second front has been opened against the Ukrainian army in the rebellious Donetsk region. The Ukrainians were forced to give up the town of Novoazovsk on the Sea of Azov, not far from the strategic port of…

ALS icebucket – where does your money go?

Thought this interesting. The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money for the ALS Association is sweeping the nation, and going viral in social media. However, do you know what you are supporting if you contribute funds to the ALS Association? Where Does the Money Contributed to the ALS Association Go? So where does the money donated to the ALS Association actually go? You may be surprised to find out that the Association itself claims that only 27% of…

A child’s prayer to end the evening

Dear God Please bless Mummy and Daddy, please look after my Aunty Em, please help all the good boys and girls of Rotherham and keep away all the bad monsters, like trolls, the one-eyed purple people eater [shudders], the long legged scissor man, Asian grooming gangs and all Lefties [convulsive shudders] who let it happen. Please make sure, God, that no Lefties are ever in charge of me. And make…

Sutton’s theory of elite action

In the comments thread at Broad Oak on the post on Lawlessness and the militarization of police, Sackers draws our attention to, and Wolfie subsequently does too: http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/08/suttons-theory-elite-action.html In a nutshell, on Antony Sutton: Beginning with his analysis of Western involvement in the creation and support of the Soviet Union, he minced no words in accusing the most powerful families, bankers, and corporations of assisting Communism, Nazism, Socialism, and their own…

Stat porn

We don’t normally do stat porn here but just had a quick look at hits that individual posts got and guess who takes the prize? http://www.4liberty.org.uk/2014/07/15/women-bishops-wont-increase-cofe-attendance/ Closely followed by Julia, Quiet Man and me. Of course, this does not include RSS reads – it’s those who clicked in – that was 1579 for Churchmouse. Who’d have thought it would be that issue?

… or an Englishman in Ireland writes on Africa: When haiku sent an article from the Irish Independent [no link, sorry] from one Kevin Myers, I went: “Myers, Myers, where have I heard that name?” And the guard was up. So I don’t know if he’s a Fenian, Loyalist, if he has Gerry Adams and Rev Paisley to dinner, but I am capable of reading his words. This is the…

Unqualified Australian or unqualified New Woman?

August 23, 2014 1 Comment

“There are enough male incompetents infesting Westminster – unprincipled, lily-livered, career politicians, total wastes of space, without bringing the female version into it, with the added neuroses, inferiority complex and chips on their shoulders.” Had to smile at Peter Oborne’s article at the Telegraph about Bercow appointing “an unqualified Australian”. Comments were choice below it: If Carol Mills were a Pakistani, would Peter Osbourne refer to her as an unqualified…

YouGov poll on immigration coming

Don’t know if I’ve mentioned it but I occasionally do these YouGov thingies and apparently they’ve revamped the homepage now and reset ratings and opinions back to zero, but left our redeemable points alone.  Ho hum: Anyway, that’s not what this post is about.  The latest poll, which no doubt will be released to the MSM by and by, was about two things – God and immigration. The first one, on…

Misuse of statistics can consign a nation to oblivion

August 19, 2014 6 Comments

It always was bollox [H/T Wiggia]: Civil servants at the Treasury have now dismissed the 3 million jobs claim by arguing the methodology was 10 years old and imprecise, rendering its conclusions entirely inaccurate. In fact, the myth is based entirely on a 1999 report by the National Institute for Economic and Social Research (NIESR) that 3.2 million jobs were “associated” with exports to goods and services to the EU.…

From the Irish referenda to the stacking of the Lords

August 18, 2014 No Comments
By

You don’t need to go past the Wiki entry for the Irish referendum to see corruption, even in the entry itself, what it says and why it has not been corrected. For a start, the entry is about half a Wiki page long. One would have thought that such a major series of events would have a long, long explanation. Not a bit of it. It opens with a a nothing…

The graphic difference between a left-liberal and a classical liberal

The graphic difference between a left-liberal and a classical liberal

Exhibit 1: A Tesco store The people here are left-liberal. They are ignoring that Hamas are putting women and children in front of military installations to be blown up and are pretending it’s not happening. Because they feel their cause is SO important, that of course gives them the right to trash someone’s store. After all, all property is theft and as good socialists, this is how they are redistributing.…

This post is to ask you, the reader, if you know anything about this old story which seems to have resurfaced via Cliff Richard. Plymouth Herald: MURDERED TV presenter and former Plymouth journalist Jill Dando tried to get BBC bosses to investigate an alleged paedophile ring in the corporation, clams a retired colleague. A former friend and retired BBC worker said that the Crimewatch frontwoman was told that “big name…

In Science Fiction, the Pod People are truly taking over

This, via Chuckles, was the one we started on the other day. It fits in with the post yesterday about being a right bastard [me, not Chuckles] and is about Science Fiction and the politics within it. I’m not an SF reader but do like much of it. In fact, I don’t read all that much for pleasure these days, writing far more and reading to research. So, not being…

As far as possible, without surrender …

In the light of world events of late, many have come out writing about it. I, like you, am doing the rounds and reading much of that, but then going back and writing. There are two extreme points of view out there among the general horror which I thought I’d mention. One is what you might call the Ayn Rand angle, compassionless, recognizing the human’s base instincts and saying let’s…
