NOW THEY TELL US

By Pete Moore On February 5th, 2021 at 7:06 pm

“They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time … They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it.”

The election is done, it’s safe to ‘fess up. Oh, and it’s not rigging an election if you get away with it.

Time has published a truly brazen and bizarre confessional.

MARKETS IN EVERYTHING

Sales of Australian wine to the UK have surged almost 30% in the last year as producers try to overcome crippling taxes on exports to China.

Wine producers have ramped up exports to Europe to a 10-year high, with the UK now the number one destination.

China increased taxes by a massive 212% in November following a trade spat with Australia which has also affected goods including lobsters and coal.

Wine Australia said the UK sales surge was helped by lockdowns and Brexit.

The value of wine exports to Europe climbed 22% last year, while “standout performer” the UK saw shipments jump 29% according to government figures.

Happy to help our old chums and proper friends, cricket and rugby aside. When we join the CPTPP I expect prices to fall further and eventualy crash to zero-tariffs when CANZAK gets going. Then the French can try to flog their wine to the Chinese. We’ll keep guzzling while the Aussies keep sending it over.

Mind you they can keep their beer, that’s awful stuff.

TRUDEAU IS NOT A GENTLEMAN

By Pete Moore On February 5th, 2021 at 6:40 pm

Canada has defended its decision to draw on a supply of coronavirus vaccines from a global inoculation-sharing initiative known as Covax.

Covax pools funds from wealthier countries to help buy vaccines for themselves and low-income nations […]

Canada is the only member of the G7 group of rich countries listed as a Covax beneficiary at this stage.

Other wealthier countries, including New Zealand and Singapore, have requested an early allocation as well.

Appalling behaviour by Trudeau. Queuing to wait your turn is one of many great British inventions. He tarnishes the legacy of Enpire. As does Jacinta Ardern in New Zealand. The Kiwis been comfortably smug behind their closed borders this last year. I’d tell them to stay there and wait it out out behind Malawi, the Congo and the EU.

For those in peril whilst in China

By Mike Cunningham On February 5th, 2021 at 3:43 pm

 I have long held a deep detestation for the Chinese Communist Party, its policies, its total disregard for the welfare of the Billion-odd Chinese who are ruled by this geriatric dictatorship, and the latest snippet simply confirms my viewpoint!

As readers maybe understand, I have long held a special place in my own mind for seamen, or, as the modern idiom goes, seafarers. From my own few years as an Engineer Officer to the present, my life and manner of thinking has been coloured by the fact that, once away from land; you are the only one. You have to decide how to proceed, how to overcome whatever problems which may beset your ship; because, whether your education is biased towards navigation and safe voyaging, or alternatively if your job is purely Mechanically or Electrically biased: whatever you decide matters; because those decisions are solely based  upon your education, your experience, or even sometimes, your instincts.

But once your vessel is tied up to a dockside wharf, we also had the benefit of shore-based knowledge, of a wealth of facilities, whether technical, financial or even medical. At least, that is how it used to be. If a seafarer presented with life-changing medical symptoms when thousands of miles away from land, the only call would be a crackly conversation between ship and shore, with, usually, the Second Mate making sometimes life-changing decisions for a patient’s treatment, based upon the symptoms and diagnoses relayed by radio communications only. These days, things are so much more improved, with Internet-aided video communications aiding both diagnosis and treatment over truly long distances.

Or so we are told. Maybe such medical help and advice is available in just about every Country with sea-going ports, people and facilities: with the exception of, seemingly, just one Country! As related by Splash Marine Magazine; They do things differently in China; like, after passing the buck between officials upon an urgent request for an ambulance, for medical aid for a man who was vomiting blood; after a twelve hour wait, a ‘doctor arrives, the patient is moved to the ambulance, the ‘doctor’ plugs his nose, and gives him some pills: AND THEN THE PATIENT, A CHINESE NATIONAL, IS RETURNED TO THE SHIP.

THE EU NEEDS A BORIS OR A TRUMP

By Pete Moore On February 4th, 2021 at 8:39 pm

The Wall Street Journal lauds Operation Warp Speed, explaining how “the successful vaccine program followed the model of U.S. mobilization in World War II”. That would be President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed, launched with the swish of his pen in May 2020.

Meanwhile the UK has vaccinated more than ten million people as the rollout gathers even more pace. That’s the UK whose Prime Minister ignored all that sensible advice to stay with the EU scheme. That’s an EU scheme which is still stalled in the blocks.

Effete metropolitans used to laugh/despair that Boris and Trump had the top jobs, enviously watching those sensible Europeans with their Merkels, Macrons and their von der Leyens. I don’t know how they are getting on with that now because a lot of them have suddenly gone quiet.

THE WORLD WILL CRUSH US

By Pete Moore On February 4th, 2021 at 8:24 pm

We live in such pansified times.

Schools have been feminised through ever fewer male teachers. Families have been feminised through ever fewer fathers. Children are brainwashed into being offended at everything while pushed into sicko “gender reassignment” camps. Male celebrities are lauded for wearing dresses. Even the armed forces on both sides of the Atlantic have been taken over by a wimp officer brigade. Not so in China.

A notice from China’s education ministry has caused a stir after it suggested young Chinese men had become too “feminine”. The message has been criticised as sexist by many online users – but some say China’s male celebrities are partly to blame.

For a while China’s government has signalled concern that the country’s most popular male role models are no longer strong, athletic figures like “army heroes” […]

The Proposal to Prevent the Feminisation of Male Adolescents called on schools to fully reform their offerings on physical education and strengthen their recruitment of teachers.

I know, the irony of a communist regime resisting the cultural Marxist degeneracy which grips the West. It’s only a few decades since my school arranged for me to have shooting lessons. It’s unthinkable that boys will now be treated like boys in British schools, given space for their energy and boisterousness, China isn’t alone in ensuring a future for itself by asserting the natural order of things. The West, not so much.

Justice ?

By Patrick Van Roy On February 4th, 2021 at 3:25 pm

Despite being charged with causing Harry’s death by dangerous driving a few months later and an extradition request by the UK, Mrs Sacoolas has refused to return.

US presidents Donald Trump and Joe Biden have both declined to send her back, saying the US rejection of the extradition request is “final”.
