ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On November 27th, 2020 at 7:11 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night

Another week done at the now pointless coalface of capitalism. I might buy a cattery and fatten the the herd for the coming year. We’ll need something to put on the plate. Winter’s arrived too. It was down to “brrr” went I went out this morning.

A little bit of sunshine then to remind us that there are only seven months until it returns. A what a bit of sunshine it is too. Yep, I dig the Bee Gees and I know you do too. This is possibly my favourite of theirs. That bossa nova rhythm is lovely, but the chorus is sublime, as sweet as anything they ever did.

Have yourselves a weekend, whatever it is you do with them now. As always, feel free to share your top sounds below –

ISRAEL HITS A BULLSEYE

By Pete Moore On November 27th, 2020 at 7:00 pm

“Remember that name – Fakhrizadeh.”

That was Benjamin Netanyahoo in April 2018, describing Iran’s atomic weapons programme. Today the nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was assassinated near Tehran. He’s not the first Iranian nuclear scientist to check out early and violently either.

There’ll be no mea culpas from the perpetrators and we don’t need one.

TOO DAMNED RIGHT

Exclusive: No.10 ‘Demanded UK Flag Be Printed On Oxford Vaccine Doses’

Quite right too. British taxpayers are funding British eggheads to devise and manfacture a vaccine which will be distributed, profit-free, to those parts of the world which can’t otherwise afford it. Too right it should carry the Union Jack, and before anyone gets it they should be made to stand, salute the flag and sing God Save the Queen.

An added bonus is that it will madly annoy everyone who deserves to be annoyed.

ORWELL DIDN’T KNOW THE HALF OF IT

Every day I think that news headlines cannot possibly become more Kafkaesque. Every day they become more Kafkaesque.

Tier 2 rules means diners and drinkers must leave pubs and restaurants once food is finished

Apparently some pubs, somewhere, are allowed to open but only if they serve food. Don’t ask me. I was past looking at these absurd details in the summer. Lunatics are best ignored sometimes. But the Prime Minister’s spokesman has said, actually said, that you’re not allowed to drink once your meal is finished.

Oewell, eat your heart out.

CLIMATE CHANGE PROPAGANDA IS EVIL

By Pete Moore On November 27th, 2020 at 6:30 pm

People worried about the climate crisis (sic – PM) are deciding not to have children because of fears that their offspring would have to struggle through a climate apocalypse, according to the first academic study of the issue.

This from people who – no doubt – think we should import endlessmany millions of immigrants from around the world: “But who will fund the NHS without them?” The very point of existence is to procreate, to pass on your genes to the future. Everything else is the ride along the way. These loons are now turned away from the very point of their existence by this mad, corrupt propaganda.

A 40-year-old mother said: “I regret having my kids because I am terrified that they will be facing the end of the world due to climate change.”

It’s also evil propaganda. How sad that some women have been turned insane by “climate change” lies. So insane they have been induced to think that the greatest joy, and the very point of their existence, is a matter of regret.

BRITISH POLITICS, AS USUAL

By Pete Moore On November 26th, 2020 at 7:17 pm

Same as it ever was.

The Times: “Five former PMs oppose move to cut foreign aid”

YouGov: “Two thirds of Britons support cutting the foreign aid budget”

This comes after the Chancellor announced that the UK government will cut its foreign aid from 0.7% of GDP to 0.5% of GDP. It still leaves us way out in front of most nations, and it’s still money we’re borrowing to give away.

Where you stand is an instinctive thing. You might regard the people as always right, sovereign and that politicians are just hired hands, there to collect the rubbish. Or maybe you think that the great unwashed masses are too stupid to know what’s good for them, and that they must be guided, nudged and hectored into the correct positions by their wise overlords. Many an opinion is built on such visceral foundations.

We, The People;

By Mike Cunningham On November 26th, 2020 at 6:32 pm

The ‘ Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea’. Sounds really good, when it is either read or spoken. Trouble is, as we all know in reality, the People in North Korea have no say in how they are ruled; there ain’t much Democracy around: and as for the term Republic. That definition reads as ‘a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch’.

Try telling  Supreme Leader Marshal of the Republic Kim Jong-un that his country’s name doesn’t quite ring true to the known facts. If you survive the assassination attempts by a nerve gas, even if you are a distant relative, you might find yourself tied to the muzzle of a large-calibre artillery piece. Our Li’l Kim just don’t take kindly to overt criticism.

I mention North Korea, which is ‘run’ as a true Communist State, along with all the trappings, mainly as an illustration of a truly repressive State, with Orwell’s phrase ‘Some are more Equal than others’ as the background noise of that truly unhappy country. The dictator’s rule is firmly enforced by the ruthless wielding of power by the World’s fourth largest standing Armed Forces.

Few people these days have witnessed the ‘rule of the gun’; as is of course standard fare in North Korea. I am of an age where I too have witnessed the ‘mailed fist’; as I recalled of the time when I was a young Engineer Officer in the Merchant Navy. I have maybe mentioned this happening before; I make no apologies for its repetition.

Why write of a repressed people: why recall the actions of a group of armed and uniformed sadists? In truth, I have just finished possibly the most frightening book that I have ever read. It is a work of fiction, but every sentence, paragraph, chapter could, in truth be taken from an America which, if the forthcoming Court cases do not totally demolish the edifice of lies and corruption which comprise this attempt to subvert, suspend and overcome the Constitution upon which was founded America; could speedily come to a bleak, dark reality. 

The novel is entitled ‘People’s Republic’: it is the first of a group of five; and it is eerily prophetic. I cannot recall a novel which gave me the feeling that the writer had taken facts, speeches and future policies promised by various (Democratic Party) politicians; and brought them to life. I commend this work for the attention of both Republican and Democratic enthusiasts alike. You might not agree, many sceptics would simply dismiss the very idea: but I would suggest that anyone with perhaps a semi-open mind read what might: just might, be just around the corner!
