I had the opportunity to go and see Trump speak yesterday. I had to turn it down, even though I was assured a seat up close and wouldn’t have had to wait in the hours long lines to get in there was no way I could do it. The spirit was willing, but…. Anyway here is the Speech. Hate it, Enjoy it, give it a Listen.
Jo Cox was the Labour MP brutally murdered by a mentally disturbed man last June. She was an ardent Remainer. Is it possible that her former Parliamentary seat may FALL to the pro Brexit Conservatives? That would be an interesting epitaph.
This is an interesting idea.
Labour Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell tried to weaken our cash-strapped military by allowing taxpayers to ‘opt out’ of helping to fund them, it has been revealed. Records from the House of Commons show that in 2014 the Shadow Chancellor proposed a motion to allow voters direct the portion of their income tax that goes towards defence into a ‘non-military security fund’. In 1999 the longtime Corbyn ally tried to change the law so taxpayers could divert the money spent on defence into foreign aid.
How about we take this to a logical conclusion and allow people to opt out of the likes of the NHS, the Foreign Aid Budget, failing State Schools? How would that be, Mr McDonnell?
The Senior National Co-ordinator for Counter Terrorism has confirmed that police are now making terror-related arrests “on a near daily basis”. Meanwhile, a noted security expert has estimated the number of “committed Islamists” in the country is “between 6,000 and 10,000”. Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu revealed the astonishing scale of the struggle to contain terrorism in a statement outside New Scotland Yard on Friday.
If this number is even HALF way right, we have a foreign army located in our country. The IRA caused chaos and brought murder to our streets with a few hundred terrorists.
I think that we should proactively go after those suspected of being Jihadists. I would throw them in solitary in a British Gitmo and deport as many as possible. The alternative is to sit back and accept the Jihad. The political Left will howl in protest at the notion that we actually go on the front foot and DO something. That’s their innate nihilism.
ANY news about?
I’ve been offline all day, out and about in this green and pleasant land. It feels very old school. Have yourselves an open thread then, one decorated with Meteora, in Greece.
Tell us what you know –
Here is a stark fact,
In 2015 20 British muslims joined the British army.
In 2015, 500 British Muslims joined Islamic State.
Can you see a problem?
The gay supremacy lobby oppose diversity of thought.
Labour’s general election boss has called for Theresa May to investigate a Tory MP who allegedly told school students it is “wrong” to be gay. Andrew Turner, 63, the Conservative MP for the Isle of Wight, is reported to have told A Level students that homosexuality is “dangerous to society”. The statement was made during a discussion about Isle of Wight Pride, according to local website On the Wight.
Listen, I couldn’t care less what he thinks BUT he has a right to express his opinion. Why should there be an “investigation” into a man’s beliefs? Is it a crime to hold true to Biblical values?
I laughed at the desperation of this bluster;
European leaders are expected to spell out how Northern Ireland could rejoin the EU after any future border poll. The leaders are meeting at a summit in Brussels over the weekend to confirm their guidelines for the Brexit negotiations. Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams said any discussions around the potential for a united Ireland within Europe are to be welcomed.
Three key points;
- I welcome the recognition that Northern Ireland will be LEAVING the EU and thus making it as far away from the Irish Republic as is possible.
- The idea that a Brexit opposing NI would somehow convert into a UK opposing one is fantasy politics.
- Every poll suggests that even IF there was a border poll, it would endorse Northern Ireland remaining within the UK. See this.
Enda Kenny is a good little Euroserf and so he seeks these odd little rheoricial “victories” but the truth is that when the UK leaves the EU, HIS economic prospects become inextricably linked with those of the UK which MEANS Ireland might end up having to grow a pair and …yes, LEAVE the EU too.
Dig deep, comrades:
“EU agency faces €400m London rent bill after post-Brexit move”
The European Medicine Agency is due to move to an EU member state once the UK has left the bloc, but the agency recently signed a lengthy rental contract on its Canary Wharf offices, with no break clause.
As a result, it will have to pay rent of €16m a year, plus taxes and charges, until 2039, according to a European Parliament report.
It seems that Brussels expects the UK to stump up the remaining rent, as well as relocation costs. Jog on, Johnny.
The probable next president of France is obviously an interesting case. He’s only 39 years of age. That alone had my bloodhound nose twitching. It’s an extraordinarily young age, in a mature democracy, for someone to smash their way into pole position for the presidency. You don’t have hinterland or enough of a supporting caravan, in your thirties.
I noticed also that of all the presidency candidates, Macron was the only one not to be accused of criminal behaviour. This is France. All French politicians are up to something, but Macron’s press was only positive, and often glowing. Bloodhound nose twitching further.
Now we have an FT profile which is (I’m sure) unintentionally revealing. We learn that within the space of a few days, Macron went from being a low-level Excel spreadsheet operative to a partner at Rothschild. That simply does not happen. He’s been groomed. This is clear, and so he’s serving higher lords. The question is who. He certainly won’t serve the French people.
