A new low for British politics

A new low for British politics

There’s a level on which we can blog about today’s events at the Tory Conference. 1. We can do the usual blogger thing about them all being crooks, all insane and so on and while it’s true, perhaps the senses become dulled to such posts day after day. 2. Then there is a different level, a level where you see something so out of order that the jaw drops. This…

Legitimate businessmen, part four

Mummy, Daddy, what does money laundering mean? Well darling, it can mean many things but the idea is to make money without anyone knowing you have. But that could mean anything. Yes darling, the most elaborates schemes have been devised.  Trouble is, what smells of laundering might not actually be laundering, if the government of the land says it’s not. Oh like those American banks which were bankrupt but the regulator…

Let’s see if we have this right about the state of play …

We’ve just observed the nauseating spectacle of the feminazis making a comeback [The Empire Strikes Back] at the UN, which we’ve only just posted on some days back, outlining some of its underlying evil.  I mean, it’s not as if this were last year or anything. And of course, who was the young poster child they chose?  Yes, a budding witch called Emma Watson, apparently embroiled in a nude photo…

Manipulation

Scenario 1 One major theme yesterday at NO was manipulation and the point was made that EVERYONE manipulates others to a greater or lesser extent to get what they want. It’s not a loaded word in itself, only in the loading people wish to apply to it. For example, someone oft accused of being manipulative will be far more sensitive to the word than someone who does subtly manipulate, such as…

Why won’t you talk about cows with me?

Why won’t you talk about cows with me?

This one comes from deep within the environmental movement, inside the animal rights activists’ bunkers. Inhabitat reports on a refusal to speak about animal farming to the animal activists [understandable just looking at some of them and their tactics] but not by those in the industry – the refusal is apparently coming from the large environmentalist bodies. This sounds more like a case for Watt’s Up to me. Here’s the…

Yes rigging, No rigging or Electoral Commission collusion?

September 20, 2014 11 Comments

Lord T sends the Youtube about ballot-rigging: … and the line is that the woman in the clip is rigging the ballot by taking Yes votes and putting them on the No pile. Now it may well have been so but this clip certainly does not show that. It shows someone picking up ballot papers and allocating them, then changing a few. Switch off the sound and just look at…

It’s nothing to do with a viewpoint, it’s to do with gross disloyalty and a cynical ploy

September 19, 2014 2 Comments

This post is not specifically about Andy Murray, it’s about issues arising from his behaviour and the general manner in which the whole thing was run. What has come through loud and clear today is that most of the English and over half the Scots wish now to live and let live, to coexist. But we see a 20 000 signature petition to run the vote again. Which side do…

Beeb language is a dead giveaway of bias

September 18, 2014 7 Comments
By

Glad Wiggia brought this to our attention because if it needed proof of Beeb political bias, here it is. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-29204170 If you look at that headline and ask: “And what? Seems reasonable to me,” then that shows your own bias towards the left. But if you’re like so many thousands others and me, you’ll immediately zero in on the words “far right” and know that only a leftist uses such…

EU – the utter lunacy of remaining in

September 17, 2014 15 Comments

The thing I find astounding and so many others obviously do too is how they can get away with the non-democratic structures and policies with that degree of impunity. It’s the impunity itself which gets me. The specific cases – well take your pick: Since the European Commission refuses to take into account the public’s views directly, people have turned to another mechanism to make their voices heard: a special…

If you feel it strongly, then for heaven’s sake write and post

The post further down on Lord Hill concerned me a bit – Wiggia got no comments until today – and so I thought I’d look at the stats on the post: You’ll notice at the right end of the line the number of views.  That’s a respectable number for a guestposter and bears no relation to the comments numbers. Going around the blogs, I’ve noticed a few fellow bloggers a…

Ceramic poppies, fish and dishonesty

Let’s not argue about this stupid idea: You might think it a grand idea. I see it as a cynical moneymaking scam by a fake charity. We’re each entitled to our view. However, the breakdown of the costs of the £25 odd flower you would buy is that £8 something goes to the charities and then those charities take their own cut out of that. The organizers have tried saying…

Pensions – who cares?

September 13, 2014 1 Comment

Yes, astounding and yet not so astounding: In events that smack of the TV farce Fawlty Towers, firms that took over rival companies simply lost whole box loads of paperwork recording pension contributions and entitlements, sometimes during office moves. Thousands of mergers have occurred in the pensions industry in recent decades, many of them in the Eighties and Nineties when paper-based record keeping was the norm. I am eternally grateful…

New phone app helps you determine if you’re racist or not

Via haiku, in the “oh my goodness”, “read and weep” departments again – can this get any sillier? A mobile phone app you can install to help you know whether you’re racist or not: A new mobile phone app that challenges Australians’ understanding of racism through role play has won global praise for promoting cultural understanding. The app focuses on subtle racism – an indirect or understated form of discrimination…

MH17

It’s often not the dastardly plot but a cascade of events, not even a cascade of errors. Russia fears the NATO/CIA involvement and knows it’s going on – did the KGB and other unit intelligence just disappear overnight in 1990? So it’s night follows day that they supply weaponry. But they’ve also been supplying the Ukraine in former days. You can even put a positive slant on NATO/CIA – that…

Religion and tolerance

September 7, 2014 13 Comments

Haiku [from N.O.], points to the Robert Lindsay piece on Islam producing psychopaths. [This post appears only at OoL.] Though it’s difficult to disagree with Lindsay, I’d like to digress and look at two other aspects – his quote below and then religion in general. When it comes to anger, Western societies widely agree that it is a sign of weakness. Uncontrolled explosions of this unpleasant feeling are maybe the…
