By Patrick Van Roy On August 19th, 2019 at 3:29 pm

Here is a reasonable bit of questioning for those promoting the AGW scams solutions.

Freedom of movement by European Union nationals into the UK will be end overnight from October 31 in the event of a no deal Brexit, Priti Patel has signalled.

(by European Union “nationals” …)

She’s the Home Secretary, but a Tory Home Secretary, so we’ll reserve judgement while preparing for disappointment.

But let’s assume for the moment that it happens, that on 1st November EU nationals with their EU passports no longer have freedom of movement into our newly liberated kingdom. How wonderfully refreshing it would be, and how astonishing.

It’s a measure of how deeply the EU distorts what the world takes for granted, that reinstating such a mundane and normal thing would feel so revolutionary.

Notwithstanding that the author is wrong about CO2 and so-called climate change, this is a very good article –

The Euro has pounded Southern Europe’s economies to dust, condemning tens of millions to permanent unemployment. But look at Germany’s credit account surpluses since the turn of the century, when the Euro was adopted. It’s a monstrous and wicked scam.

Because Friday night is Music Night

A groovy number in my opinion, for tonight. Yep, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have covered a Ramones original. It was a live staple for a while. I like it as well. The original is great, but this is very different, and really good. Maybe even better – come at me.

Have fun whatever you’re up to this weekend, except Welsh rugby fans. As always, feel free to share your fav sounds down below –

No more special and precious than everyone else’s lives.

A recently married Thames Valley Police officer was killed last night. It’s an unspeakable tragedy for his family. They will never recover from it. A loved man, taken away by the kind of filth who have increasingly blighted so many other lives. The Thames Valley Police Commissioner today calls for tougher action on those who attack the police.

The tragic death of one of my officers must be a wake up call for our soft justice system

But I must disagree with him. Assaults against the police have become more commonplace, but then that’s true for many people. Many of those other victims have called the police in vain. For decades now the public has been increasingly abandoned by the institution of the police, which has usually been silent while the public demands sterner punishment for the wicked. As a result, the public has, to a great extent, lost faith in the police. We know that it’s a political force now, which stands neutral between aggressors and victims and which is always ready to persecute a thoughtless tweet.

Peel’s famous Nine Principles of Policing are long forgotten by the police now. I’d be astonished if recruits are ever introduced to them. Number 7 runs thus:

“To maintain at all times a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and that the public are the police, the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.”

Even the founding principles of policing state that they are not different or special. They are simply us. At least that was the intention. But many poor sods have found that the police now stand ready to persecute anyone who gives attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.

So welcome to the party, Mr Commissioner. Let’s come down hard on aggressors, but all of them, and not just those who aggress against the police.
