SOCIALISM?

By Pete Moore On August 20th, 2018 at 7:13 pm

This is how many Venezuelan bolivars are required now to buy a chicken. That’s 14,600,000 bolivars, equivalent to $2.22, or £1.74. To be honest I’m astonished that there are any chickens left in Venezuela. I thought they were now eating their shoes.

Some are putting it down to socialism. This is wrong. It’s monetarism. The Economist has the right idea, even if its labels are wrong:

The worthlessness of Venezuela’s currency is the result of inflation, 46,000% a year, which in turn is largely caused by the printing of money to finance the government’s deficit of 30% of GDP.

For the record, “inflation” is the printing of money. Rising prices are the effect of inflation. But still, that’s what’s been happening in Venezuela. The government is spending too much. The economy is shrinking under the burden of socialist government, and it’s printing money to plug the gap. It’s printed so much money that the currency is now, literally, worthless. Beware anyone who promotes or demands deficit spending and money printing.

WOMEN DON’T HAVE PENISES

By Pete Moore On August 20th, 2018 at 6:49 pm

There, I’ve said it. Women don’t have willies – come and get me rozzers

Is it now a crime to tell the truth in Britain? It’s heading that way. At the weekend it was revealed that Merseyside Police are making ‘enquiries’ into a trans-sceptical group that distributed stickers saying ‘Women don’t have penises’. Yes, that’s right: the police, the actual police, are investigating a group for expressing what the vast majority of people consider to be a biological, social, actual fact: that if you have a penis you are not a female.

The absolute state of this country. That killer asteroid just can’t come soon enough.

EUROPE, AS USUAL NOW

By Pete Moore On August 20th, 2018 at 6:44 pm

An Iranian stabbed a German woman on the street on Monday morning. The victim died in a hospital shortly after the knife attack. The police are searching for the perpetrator, whom they now know is an immigrant from Iran. They have already searched the apartment, but have not found the man […]

An eyewitness recounted that at around 7.30 am the victim had run screaming across the creek and called for help — pursued by a man who was screaming loudly.

Just another day in Europe, just another woman murdered by a muslim immigrant. At the same time, a muslim terrorist was shot dead while attacking a Barcelona police station. Well done immigrationistas. Before you have any more bright ideas, try keeping them to yourselves.

WHEN YOU THINK THE TORIES CAN’T GET ANY WORSE

By Pete Moore On August 19th, 2018 at 9:26 pm

South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa is seeking to emulate Robert Mugabe racist land grabs. That is, his government will simply steal it without compensation.

It appears that Theresa May’s rotten government backs the policy.

THE BREXIT MOOD HARDENS

By Pete Moore On August 19th, 2018 at 6:53 pm

The Remain establishment tells us that we’ve changed our minds on Brexit. They’re right. It’s true. Some 13 per cent of Brexiteers have changed their minds since the EU referendum. But some 15 per cent of Remain voters have changed their minds too. This is the result of a Deltapoll survey for the super soaraway Sun on Sunday.

It’s an astonishing thing, when you think about it. The Leave campaigns packed up and went home two years ago, demob happy. But the Remain campaign continued. Project Fear has never let up. The BBC and Sky News have pumped out relentless propaganda. A;; the organs of the state and big business have worked tirelessly to thwart democracy. And the result is that Brexit is even more popular than before.

I put it down to a couple of things. We were warned that the sky would fall if we voted to leave the EU. Well we did that, and two years later the sky is still up there. We’ve also seen how hateful, anti-democratic and authoritarian the EU is. Many Remain voters were unaware of what a horrible club it is, and Brussels’ wild reaction, with frequent threats to the British people, has opened eyes.

The establishment is trying desperately hard to get yet another referendum going. They’ll lose that one too. The British people have an innate sense of fair play, and the establishment ought to beware what will follow.

ATW QOTD

By Pete Moore On August 19th, 2018 at 6:31 pm

Modern arguments about grammar schools entirely miss the real point.  … Their main purpose was to educate the next generation so that it would be able to take over and run an advanced, civilised society.

To do that, there was no substitute for the proper knowledge and rigorous learning that such schools provided. Between 1965 and 1975, almost all these schools were destroyed in a mad spasm of egalitarianism.

The private schools, mostly nothing like as good, also lowered their standards, because they could. The new diluted exams made it possible for them to look marvellous when they were just coasting.

And in the years since, there has been a noticeable decline in the quality of our society. Even supposedly educated people don’t know how to think, and don’t actually know very much, by comparison with those who were in charge half a century ago.

And one of the main features of people who can’t think is that they can’t admit their mistakes – and never put them right.

That’s Peter Hitchens, who is on fire this weekend, on how deeply damaging the closure of grammar schools have been. This was done by egalitarian zealots and revolutionaries who knew what the result would be. The dumbing down of Britain was the very point of it. A meaningful education is astonishingly rare now, and is the main reason why, as he puts it, nothing works any more.

CANNOT BREATHE

A CITY WORTH VISITING

By Pete Moore On August 18th, 2018 at 6:52 pm

This fabulous film is the first colour recording of London, made in 1926. It was made by Claude Friese-Greene, a filmmaker, who travelled across Britain with a colour film camera to create a collection of clips, The Open Road.

Flat caps and bowler hats. Everyone looking smart. Buses clogging up the roads even then. Police who look like bobbies and not paramilitaries. And no stabbings, no shootings and no Third World slums, because everyone’s British, in beautiful gammon-faced sameness.

We need to turn back the clock. This London is better.

IMMIGRATION IS A CATASTROPHE FOR BRITAIN

By Pete Moore On August 18th, 2018 at 6:02 pm

On Thursday (August 16) a 93-year-old woman was waiting at a bus stop on Turf Lane at 11.55am when two men attempted to snatch her handbag.

The woman was dragged to the floor, banging her head and leaving her with multiple injuries to her head, knees and hands.

SWITZERLAND IS BETTER THAN SWEDEN

By Pete Moore On August 18th, 2018 at 5:58 pm

Sweden: “A Swedish Muslim woman has won compensation after her job interview was ended when she refused a handshake.”

Switzerland: “A Muslim couple have been denied Swiss citizenship after they refused to shake hands with people of the opposite sex during their interview, officials say.”

Sweden is overrun with with primitives, one of the rape capitals of the world and suffering riots and terror. Switzerland is the happiest country in the world. What we see are small examples of the attitudes which lead to these wildly different outcomes.

So well done to the sensible Swiss. They know that many Islamic and primitive desert customs are incompatible with Western Civilisation. They rightly say so and shut the door to these bigoted, hateful aliens.
