TOW THEM BACK

By Pete Moore On December 31st, 2018 at 8:06 pm

One of my recent joys has been seeing how easily the press flips the narrative.

BBC Reality Check Team: How many people seek asylum in the UK?

More than 230 people have attempted to cross the English Channel in small boats since November, according to a tally being kept by BBC News.

(No really, the BBC actually has a “reality check team”.)

I simply love how, according to the Remainer press, establishment and cultural gauleiters, it will be a disaster to leave the EU. Yet when Afghans, Iranians and other illegals start fleeing the EU for the nearly-not-EU, they are transformed into poor, helpless people “seeking asylum”.

It’s as if there’s an agenda.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, TO DECENT DRIVERS

By Pete Moore On December 31st, 2018 at 7:33 pm

For once, I’ll let the rozzers off being officious, ticket-issuing gits –

What we have here is supercharged prat in a BMW X5. I have say, middle lane hoggers absolutely boil my piss. It’s a crime almost as bad as animal cruelty in my book, and I’d hang those people.

At any one moment, hundreds of miles of national motorway are empty, in the left hand lane, because thoughtless prats are sitting in the middle lane. If the left hand lane is empty then move into it. Not only because that’s what the Highway Code mandates, but because it’s sensible and frees up room for drivers outside. It’s safe and sensible, but then a lot of people are completely oblivious to how hopeless they are on the road.

It comes as overly slow driving is increasingly to blame for crashes, particularly when combined with being a middle lane hog. Well yes, it’s always been obvious that excessively slow driving is at least as dangerous as driving too fast. There was a time when driving standards in the UK were pretty good, and well ahead of most other countries. I’m not so sure now. With increasing immigration from places with barely any standards in anything, decline has been inevitable.

As Time Goes By

Tomorrow we Gregorians celebrate the passing of the old year and the beginning of the New Year. Ive never been a huge fan of the amateur night known as New Years Eve. Champagne is not my drink, massive crowds are not my pleasure and I associate ball dropping with hernias.

I am born and bred in the New York City area, but I have never attended the Times Square freezing debauchery. I’d rather be a Jehovah Witness knocking on doors in Kabul than a among the revelers in Times Square. So cold there by Midnight everyone looks worse than Jack Nicholson at the end of The Shining.

I do like Robbie Burns’ Auld tune – it is celtic, nostalgic and no one knows all the words. We fake it like Mr. Rogers at an AC/DC concert. There is something about partial recognition that appeals to me as I grow older.

If you had a good year may you have another. If you had a tough year may you have a better one. Cheers and Slainte!

Officer Singh leaves a wife and a son less than a year old. He came here to pursue the American Dream he did it LEGALLY but Democrats don’t want his type of Immigrant they want the scum from South America that sneak in here instead.

Give Him A Shrubbery

Arise, Sir. Michael Palin. A Knight who says Ni.
In an honors system that has promoted the worthy and unworthy, saints and scoundrels, and the detestable and admirable Sir Michael falls in the plus side of the column. His addition brings honor to the honor.
His bemused traveling of the world, hilarious contributions to Monty Python and overall charm have a special place in my estimation.
It would have been wonderful to see all the Pythons knighted at once, a ceremony for the Ages, but apparently no one roundtabled such an idea. Even though they have lost members to death and dementia they remaing band still has more biting wit, original thought and comedic sharpness than most comedians half their age.
This is the best knighthood to put a smile on my face since Bugs Bunny said Arise, Sir Loin of Beef. Congratulations to one of the good guys.

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On December 28th, 2018 at 6:43 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night: only 362 shopping days till Christmas

Apologies for the tardiness of the blog. I had a couple of days away at short notice. Very short notice, as in “get in the motor if you’re coming”. Normal service will be resumed shortly.

I hope that Santa brought you everything you wanted, as well as socks. I got what I wanted, a clear run round the M25 on Christmas Day. It’s like the country had been evacuated and no-one told me. It was quite unnerving at first to see it so clear.

Have a good weekend and, as always, feel free to share your fav sounds down below –

HMV BITES THE DUST

By Pete Moore On December 28th, 2018 at 6:35 pm

Music retailer HMV has confirmed it is calling in KPMG as administrators. The move, the second in six years, involves 2,200 staff at 125 stores.

Owners Hilco, which took the company out of its first administration in 2013, blamed a “tsunami” of retail challenges, including business rate levels and the move to digital.

HMV is another staple of the High Street, and it’s only the latest to fall victim to what is a shopping and logistical revolution. Government, of course, is completely oblivious. The government, the Tories, are naturally imbued with complacency. Tories are soaked in complacency. So nothing is being done to slay the taxes and car parking charges which are killing our high streets – not a thing.

One day a Tory MP will stroll down a high street and genuinely wonder why it’s all takeaways, charity shops and stabbers.

Keep The Change

By Mahons On December 27th, 2018 at 1:34 pm

President Trump lying isn’t news. He does so constantly. I have come to believe that his core supporters actually revel in his lies, as they dont seem to mind them.

Yesterday’s lie was that he was giving the military a 10 percent raise, and that he was giving them their first pay raise in almost a decade. It was like a restaurant patron bragging about his big tip to a waiter.

The raise is 2.something percent, and the military has gotten raises virtually every year for the last thirty years.

Why would he lie about something so easy to fact check, and to an audience that knows he is lying? I suppose that is a question for a psychiatrist. It seems he needs to brag, even falsely, as much as he needs to breathe.

His lies came on the heels of the story about his bone spurs keeping him out of Vietnam. A lot of politicians avoided serving in that complicated war. But even the chicken hawks who avoided it through deferments had the decency not to attack those who did serve. Trump doesnt share that last thread of decency.

A conservative writer reminded me that character is destiny, and through all his evasion, lies and deceit I suspect Trump is headed for an ultimate downfall. As for his core supporters, who seem to ignore his character, I worry that they are forfeiting their own.

Smile…..
