THE WOMEN’S GAME IS COMING ON

By Pete Moore On June 23rd, 2019 at 8:22 pm

So there I was, pottering around in the kitchen, the Women’s World Cup on the box. I know, never a greater irony. England beat Cameroon 3-0, by the way.

I’d just like to say that Cameroon were a thoroughly nasty bunch of fouling, elbowing, spitting, ref-shoving, petulant, crying bad sports.

Which just goes to show that the women’s game is catching up with the men’s.

MEANWHILE …

This is in Dublin. Imagine what the rest of the country’s like.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

By Pete Moore On June 23rd, 2019 at 4:55 pm

On this day, three years ago, the British people chose to leave the EU. It was our decision alone, in-or-out, leave would mean leave, and the government would implement what we decide. Three years later we haven’t budged one inch toward the door. That’s because the Establishment – in politics, the media, the civil service, the cultural institutions, in business – is corrupt.

The Establishment in this country is as scheming and sinister and mendacious and self-serving and hateful and contemptuous and intransigent as the Establishments in all the more obviously corrupt and evil and dangerous countries in the world to which we used to feel superior. It’s just much better at masking its vileness.

Just as a brief thought experiment, ask yourself how we’d view it if China had given its people a referendum and then executed a complete reverse ferret when the people gave the wrong result. Or if Iran had behaved similarly badly. Or the Democratic Republic of Congo.

We’d all condemn it (presuming that we’d been made aware of it) as just the kind of dodgy behaviour you’d expect from Communist dictatorships/Islamic republics/African sweatboxes. We’d be disgusted; appalled; aghast that the regime in question could get away with such crimes against democracy.

Yet somehow, mystifyingly, bizarrely, when our own government does it gets pretty much a free pass from our mainstream media, which for decades we’ve told ourselves is robust and fearless but which is in fact so compliant in might just as well be Soviet-era Pravda or Radio Pyongyang.

Dellers is out with a beautiful and wholly correct denunciation. He’s knows that democracy has been annulled not because of some backstop, not because of rules, not because the EU is a dishonest broker (which it is). You either leave the EU, as is our right, or you do not leave it. That’s all there is to it. It’s not complicated. So democracy has been annulled because the Establishment – the Remain Establishment – is as corrupt as any Third World banana republic on the planet. That is unarguable. That is observed fact.

CONSERVATIVES CONSERVE NOTHING

By Pete Moore On June 22nd, 2019 at 7:31 pm

If you’ve driven past Stonehenge you’ll have been on the A30, a single carriageway road a few hundred yards from the monument. The importance of the monument is much more than the stones. They sit in possibly the world’s richest neolithic and bronze age landscape. It is certainly the UK’s most precious archeological landscape, Walk away from the stones in any direction and you will come across other henges, neolithic and bronze age monuments, round barrows, long barrows, cursuses (cursii?) and the oldest known human settlement in these islands. It feels a bit personal to me because I spend a lot of time walking the sacred landscape, which is a World Heritage Site. All of it is a World Heritage Site. It is such because for thousands of years it was a sacred landscape and is stuffed full of the evidence.

So of course the corrupt Tories, led by the awful Chris Grayling, want to bung millions of Pounds at builders to obliterate a large part of it. They intend to build a four lane highway in a tunnel where the A30 is. It would be bad enough if they wanted to bore a tunnel through it. But no, they intend to gouge out the landscape and back fill. It is a desecration of a landscape which was sacred for thousands of years and which is priceless. A desecration which will be a complete waste of money even on its own terms. It would be a national shame, disgrace and embarrassment.

For this alone the Tories deserve to lose the next General Election and go out of business. Please spend a couple of minutes seeing how “conservatives” conserve –

Did Tucker Carlson Just save the country?

By Phantom On June 22nd, 2019 at 6:51 pm

By all accounts, the US came very close to bombing Iran the other day. It appears That a decision had been made to bomb, But that the president reversed the decision after speaking with Tucker Carlson. Tucker Carlson of Fox News.

Carlson has been a consistent and ferocious critic of the Iraq war, of unnecessary US military adventures generally.

When Hannity this week was giggling about the prospect of “ bombing the hell out of Iran “ , Carlson was warning that an Iran war would not be in the US national interest, that it would be much worse than the disastrous and unwise Iraq war.

There have been times when the press has led us to war. This past week, the press averted a war. Let’s hope that it stays averted.

THERE’S ALOT GOING ON HERE

By Pete Moore On June 22nd, 2019 at 6:48 pm

The US Supreme Court has quashed the conviction of a black death row inmate in Mississippi because the prosecution excluded black jurors […]

Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who wrote the majority opinion, said the state had “engaged in dramatically disparate questioning” of prospective jurors based on race … In a concurring opinion, Justice Samuel Alito noted it was “risky” for the case to be tried “once again by the same prosecutor” […]

Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch disagreed.

The Supremes haven’t disputed the guilty verdict. A retrial is possible. It ruled that prosecutors wrongly discriminated against black jurors. Two conservatives voted to quash the conviction, including the man that the Left tried to ruin recently. Two conservatives, one of them black, voted to uphold it.

STRANGE SPANISH PRACTICES

By Pete Moore On June 22nd, 2019 at 6:31 pm

Spain’s Supreme Court has ruled that an attack on a teenage woman that shocked Spain was gang rape, rather than an earlier verdict of sexual abuse.

No problem with that. It’s a case which has gripped Spain. An 18 year old woman was dragged off a Pamplona street and gang raped by five men. The original verdict was not well met.

In April 2018, a court in Navarra jailed the men for nine years each for sexual abuse but acquitted them of the graver charge of sexual assault, the equivalent of rape under existing Spanish law.

The ruling was based on a decision that the woman had not faced violence or intimidation, but had been abused.

In the real world, five men dragging a woman into an apartment block to rape her is a rather violent act, no? Standing around her with their trousers down is rather intimidating, no?

Music….

By Patrick Van Roy On June 22nd, 2019 at 5:03 pm

A little change up for Sunday…. 

I had two blues tunes up here that I hadn’t heard before I liked so I shared. Peter asked a good question was it really blues or Rock edimacating me that in my view once they achieve that perfect level the two really are one.

Well this is Blues, Rock, Country and definitely Soul all in one Enjoy.

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT MUSIC

By Pete Moore On June 21st, 2019 at 7:12 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night

Happy Solstice everyone. Sol Invictus has finally made it to Albion, just in time for the weekend. A commune with the ancients somewhere in Wessex is called for followed by meat and beer. Tradition is the most important thing afterall. Have a great weekend whatever you’re up to. I’m not bigly into modern music but I do like Saskatoon’s finest. Mainly because it sounds like old music. So we’ll have some of that.

As always, feel free to share your fav sounds down below –
