HOOTS MON…

By David Vance On April 26th, 2017 at 7:25 pm

I wanted you to compare and contrast these statements from the SNP leadership.

First up, Nicola Sturgeon, 24 hours ago.

“The General Election is not about deciding whether Scotland should be independent, the First Minister has said.”

And then Alex Salmond today….

Alex Salmond has said that Scots will be voting on the “right of the Scottish Parliament” to hold a second independence referendum when they go to the polls on June 8.

Clear?

IRONY JUST DIED…

By David Vance On April 26th, 2017 at 6:42 pm

Well, regular ATW readers will know my long standing objection to that moral sewer, the UN. Now read on…

Saudi Arabia has sentenced an atheist to death for uploading a video in which he renounced Islam and the Prophet Mohammed.  The man has been identified locally as Ahmad Al Shamri who is in his 20s and from the town of Hafar al-Batin.  Saudi authorities first picked him up in 2014 after he uploaded the video showing men and women dancing which led to him being charged with atheism and blasphemy.

Got that? Sentenced to death for denying Mohammad.

And then, this….

Saudi Arabia has been elected to the UN women’s rights commission, prompting outrage from human rights groups. The kingdom is now one of 45 countries sitting on a panel “promoting women’s rights, documenting the reality of women’s lives throughout the world, and shaping global standards on gender equality and the empowerment of women,” according to the UN.

So, one of the world’s biggest ABUSERS of Human Rights, a truly despicable regime, now sits on the UN Women’s Rights Commission. Not even a trace of irony….

ENVY OF THE WORLD….

Not so long ago, NHS apologists were out protesting against plans by the Government to try and make the NHS a truly 7 day a week service for patients. One of the great fantasies they spouted was that there is no need for this because patient care at weekends is JUST AS GOOD as during the week. Now then, anyone who has either been in hospital or has had close relatives in hospital at weekends know just what a garguantuan lie this is. I can vividly remember the sense of fear when a relative was rushed in on a Friday night – you knew that “doctor” would not be a visiting them until Monday. If they survived. Oh, but maybe that was JUST my experience? Right? Wrong.

“More than 4,000 people died last year after NHS blunders such as leaving instruments INSIDE a patients body or giving them the wrong drugs. The shocking figures, obtained under Freedom of Information rules, include at least 74 occasions when surgeons operated on the wrong part of a person’s body and 34 times when an instrument or swab was accidentally left inside a patient’s body following surgery.”

HARD LABOUR….

By David Vance On April 26th, 2017 at 6:25 pm

This one is directed at the denialists on ATW who refuse to accept what will happen on June 8th to Labour. Rather than me say anything (heaven forbid) I will quote the words of left wing commentator Polly Toynbee writing in the left wing Guardian, today. Hope that rings your bell!

“Walk the corridors of Westminster, and round every corner you encounter the pale faces of the living dead. Labour MPs look like patients who have just had the bad news from the oncologist: it’s mortal, it’s terminal, far too late now for anything more than palliative care.

This malaise runs deep, as the brand of the party itself has become profoundly contaminated and mistrusted by the very people Labour thinks it’s there to support. The class and culture divide between Labour leaders and its putative voters yawns too wide to bridge.

How bad could it be? Professor Rob Ford, a psephologist and political analyst for the BBC, warns: “You can reach a point of no return.” Even those sitting on majorities of more than 10,000 and well above are at risk. Some of Labour’s safest seats, Celtic or rust belt, have the most strongly Brexit voters, who most dislike Corbyn. It’s not impossible for Labour to fall below 100 seats, Ford says, and Mattinson agrees – though 120 might be more likely. Professor John Curtice puts it a bit higher, “but this could be the party now just of Merseyside and London”.

Oh, and here are the thoughts of outgoing LABOUR MP Gisela Stuart…

Labour has become irrelevant just as Brexit presents a huge opportunity for national renewal

As someone else once observed, “You don’t need a weatherman. To know which way the wind blows”….

THE DEEP STATE…

By David Vance On April 26th, 2017 at 11:18 am

It’s remarkable watching the Obama approved Judiciary declare that defending the US Constitution is, well, unconstitutional! I’ll get to that in a moment but first, let’s reflect on this;

Federal Judge William Orrick III, who on Tuesday blocked President Trump’s order to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities, reportedly bundled hundreds of thousands of dollars for President Barack Obama.

Oh really? Imagine my surprise.

It’s a bit like discovering that another Judge who ruled against Trump was also an Obama stooge.

U.S. Judge Derrick Watson of the Hawaii federal district, appointed to the seat by former President Barack Obama, accused Trump of discriminating against Muslims, which Watson said was obvious to a “reasonable, objective observer” who was “enlightened” by the facts.

Why it’s as IF Obama is running the opposition to Trump using judical activists masquerading as Judges. Gosh.

THE FIRST CASUALTY OF BREXIT IS….

By David Vance On April 26th, 2017 at 10:08 am

…Scottish and Irish Nationalism.

Let that sink in.

Brexit means the UK AS A SINGLE ENTITY will exit the EU. The Celtic fringe don’t want to accept that the tide of political events has turned against them and they are now exposed. The bleating of Sinn Fein and the SDLP in Northern Ireland is wondeful to hear. They INSIST that Theresa May must create special circumstances to keep NI in parts of the EU. It won’t happen.

Meanwhile in Scotland, things are looking ominous for the SNP and its leader Nicola Sturgeon,

“Nicola Sturgeon risks becoming a “laughing stock” over her claim that her election campaign has nothing to do with independence, Ruth Davidson has said as grassroots nationalists urged the SNP to make the link “explicit and undeniable”. The Scottish Tory leader poured scorn on the First Minister’s attempt to decouple her recent demand for a second referendum from the general election, asking “who does she think she is kidding?” She said Ms Sturgeon may have told her members not to mention “the ‘i’ word” on the doorsteps but the SNP has always used gains in previous elections to push the case for separation.”

Why might Sturgeon be desperate to avoid mention “Independence” on the doorsteps at this election having demanded a 2nd one? Well, there is this…

“SUPPORT for independence has plummeted to just 40 per cent, a shock poll claimed last night. The Kantar survey found that 60 per cent back the Union, after undecided voters are discounted.”

Meanwhile, we also find this…

A Panelbase survey, commissioned by The Sunday Times Scotland, put support for the Scottish Tories at 33 per cent, an increase of an astonishing 18 points compared to the 2015 general election. They currently have only one Scottish MP, David Mundell, the Scottish Secretary, but this would give them 12 seats including 10 from the Nationalists and one from Labour.

Here is the unvarnished truth.

Despite a vocal and media-prominent minority, the UK is moving to a BREXIT Nation. June 9th wil prove that.

WINNING STRATEGIES!

By David Vance On April 25th, 2017 at 9:05 pm

I wanted to offer you two great examples as to how Labour are committing electoral suicide!

Labour should ban men from standing in all future by-elections until half the party’s MPs are female, women’s champion Jess Phillips MP has said.

Great idea, Jess – alienate half the electorate and see how well that one goes.

Meanwhile, Labour unveiled a big idea today…

The Labour party is set to pledge to protect the rights of EU citizens living in the UK if it wins the election.

And in reality…

This is electoral suicide.

UNIONISM DECAYED…

By David Vance On April 25th, 2017 at 8:23 pm

It’s been a decade since I published “Unionism Decayed” and ten years on the decay is greater! Just consider this for a moment if you will…

“Prospects for a series of electoral pacts between the DUP and the UUP now look increasingly unlikely, unionist sources have said. In a surprising development, little or no agreement emerged over key constituencies at yesterday’s meeting between DUP leader Arlene Foster and new Ulster Unionist leader Robin Swann.

The DUP now seems set to contest South Belfast and South Antrim with the Ulster Unionists standing candidates in East Belfast and Upper Bann, sources said. The lack of progress will bolster the chances of the SDLP’s Alasdair McDonnell holding onto his South Belfast seat.”

Agreed. Sir Les Patterson look-alike Alasdair should scrape through because these goons cannot agree.

The truth of the matter is that the Unionist leadership (DUP/UUP) is Lilliputian, unable to put country before party, and incapable of defending Unionism. And yet the plebs keep voting for them. And the Union keeps getting weaker….

WIPE OUT 2017?

By David Vance On April 25th, 2017 at 8:08 pm

The clock is ticking on what will be a devastating election outcome for Labour. I am told that any Labour MP with a majority in 2015 of <10,000 is facing the prospect of losing their seat. Meanwhile, this is what the new Parliament could look like….

This would be an incredible change is just two years. The Conservative Party – on the RIGHT side of Brexit in principle –  is ascendant. The Labour Party is on the rocks. Just watch and wait.

WHO KNEW?

By David Vance On April 25th, 2017 at 8:01 pm

Turns out free food is very popular!

A major report from the poverty husters welfare charity the Resolution Trust has revealed that in the past 12 months a record 1,182,954 three day emergency food parcels were handout to those in dire need.

Included in those helped between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017 were 436,000 children. The figure is up from the previous year when 1,109,309 parcels were handed out.

In the days before the BBC banned me (too controversial for that Fake News Portal, you see!) I used to regularly point out that Food Banks are little more than a scam – the Left seeking to weaponise the plight of the less well off! I have not changed my view one jot – I repeat my long held view that there is NO SUCH THING as poverty in the UK. If you want to see what poverty, try this…

Not having <60% of median income may be unfortunate BUT it sure as hell is not poverty!
