WELCOME TO LONDON

By Pete Moore On March 3rd, 2019 at 12:59 pm

Jodie Chesney was 17 years old. She was walking in a park in Harold Hill, East London when someone stuck a knife in her back. That was it, she was dead at the scene.

The murderer might be a mental case who flipped. The police have described her killing as a random attack. It might be gang-related. There’s an initiation thing, where a prospective gang member has to stab someone – anyone – to be accepted. No description of the attackers has been released despite there being witnesses. We might make some assumptions.

What I do know is that London is sinking ever faster.

The Underlying Anger

Fellow Philadelphian Michelle Malkin displays and explains the anger that even though she is speaking at CPAC both parties are facing. It’s 20 min long, but worth the time if you want an understanding of the underlying political atmosphere.

Music

A short diddy but I liked it I hope you do.

It’s a feature video from one of the best shows on tv that was destroyed by ego and and not by the actors. The Show is called The Expanse there are 3 seasons of it all on Amazon Prime . It originally ran on Syfy but Bezos owned the show and didn’t like the way it was being handled, so he was going to take it over and do it right….

There have been no new episodes….. thanks Jeff, but the 3 seasons are a complete story. This video circles around my favorite character Miller and his obsession.

as usual comments and other music are always welcome.

IT’S AS IF THERE’S SOME KIND OF BORDER

By Pete Moore On March 1st, 2019 at 6:17 pm

Yesterday, two British fisherman had their boats impounded by the Irish Navy after “alleged breaches of fishing regulations”.

It follows the collapse of a gentleman’s agreement allowing vessels from NI and the Republic reciprocal access to each other’s inshore waters …

At present, Northern Ireland vessels are banned from fishing inside the Republic of Ireland’s six-mile limit. But the Republic’s fleet has not been excluded from Northern Ireland waters.

Who could possibly want to leave such a club? It’s similar in the English Channel, where Dutch, French and Spanish boats seem to have licence to grab far greater catches than British vessels. I can only assume that Theresa May has been handling fishing policy all these years. And then today –

Two Northern Ireland fishermen whose boats were impounded by the Irish Navy on Thursday have appeared in court.

Now there’s a friendly gesture. I have an idea. British boats can stay in British waters, and Irish boats stay in Irish waters. Different jurisdictions, different countries after all.

SEE HOW OUR FRIENDS LOVE US?

The Israeli Attorney General intends to indict PM Netanyahu on corruption charges. Meanwhile in Canada, there are calls for Justin Trudeau to resign after the former Justice Minister and Attorney General testified to his corruption, alleging that threats were made against her.

It’s very thoughtful of Israel and Canada, at this difficult time, to go to such lengths to make British politics appear calm and orderly.

RIP ANDRE PREVIEW

By Pete Moore On February 28th, 2019 at 7:13 pm

Andre Previn has died. Yeah I know. Four Oscars, ten grammys,  conductor for the London Symphony Orchestra and all that. It’s impressive, but he will always be associated over here with one of the great comedy sketches, with Morecambe and Wise. Eric Morecambe was a genius in my opinion. And this one always cracks me up even though I’ve seen it many times. Fair play to Previn for sending himself up too. This is comedy gold –

HOW GO TORY IMMIGRATION TARGETS?

By Pete Moore On February 28th, 2019 at 6:49 pm

Net migration to the UK from countries outside the European Union has hit its highest level for 15 years, the Office for National Statistics says.

Bang on target then. Oh, the Tories always say that they will bring down immigration. But Tories are corrupt liars. The lies work on Tory vote fodder, because Tory voters have the memory of a goldfish. Come the next General Election they’ll go trooping off the polling station, confident that if only the country votes Tory then immigration will come down.

No it won’t. That’s because the Tory Party is a lie machine which can never be trusted.

A NATIONAL HAMMERBLOW

By Pete Moore On February 28th, 2019 at 6:43 pm

We are a nation divided. The glaciers are boiling and the seas melting. The poor kiddies suffer an obesity epidemic brought on by Tory austerity. It is terrible out there. But the Earl of Glasgow, a LibDem peer, lets slip the news which hurts the most –

I know. Economics isn’t his strong point. He wouldn’t be a Lib Dem otherwise. But that’s churlish. My black, Brexit heart has finally broken for metropolitan Remainers like the noble Earl. How do I set up a fund to help out these poor people?

AND BRADFORD TOO

By Pete Moore On February 27th, 2019 at 7:12 pm

Nine men (sic) who raped and abused two teenage girls who were living in a children’s home have been jailed.

The girls were aged 14 when the men first began to use drink, drugs and violence to groom and sexually exploit them.

Bradford Crown Court heard the abuse started after the girls moved into the home in 2008.

Not “men”, but Pakistani muslims. And like so many other victims of jihad-rape, these girls were supposed to be in the care of local authorities who did nothing while the girls were viciously and barbarically abused, tortured and repeatedly raped.

Never, ever, let anyone tell you that immigration has been anything but a catastrophe for the British people.

WILLIAMSON ISN’T AN ANTI-SEMITE

By Pete Moore On February 27th, 2019 at 7:01 pm

Labour has suspended MP Chris Williamson over remarks about the party’s handling of anti-Semitism […]

A number of Labour MPs had called for his suspension and the parliamentary party said he was no longer welcome at their meetings.

I know. What a surprise. Another Labour MP hates Jews. One so close, so very close, to Corbyn too. After nine MPs walked away from Labour last week because of its institutional antisemitism, even Williamson had to lose the whip.

But in truth he’s not an antisemite. He’s a working class Midlander. A nutcase, creepy, revolutionary Marxist one, but a working class Midlander all the same. And the British working class doesn’t care one bit about that kind of thing.

British antisemitism is based in the middle class, metropolitan far-left. It’s based in academia, the arts and politics. It’s a nostrum on the far-left that Israel is evil, therefore that Jews who support Israel are evil, and that both must go. The British working class doesn’t care one bit about Israel either way. Williamson is just being clubby, with his black shirts and Jew-baiting. It makes him feel he belongs in Corbyn’s new Labour.

Nevertheless it remains the case that anyone who think himself non-racist and non-sectarian absolutely has no business supporting the Labour Party.
