JOHN CLEESE IS SO RIGHT

By Pete Moore On May 29th, 2019

It’s been obvious for a long time to anyone with functioning eyes and ears that London is a foreign place, so sadly unBritish. Each visit simply confirms the sad slide into a nowhere city of nowhere people. A place with no grounding culture, no hinterland and nothing for which to strive or protect. That’s because it’s full of foreigners with little love or affection for the great civilisation which made London the capital of the Empire, the greatest thing that ever happened to an undeserving world. Not for the first time, John Cleese is copping flak from these empty shells for simply pointing out the truth.

One of the truths we must acknowledge is that London’s status as Remain Central has everything to do with it being a foreign city. It is now so different from England and the wider UK that real patriots feel no affection for it any longer. Why would we? It’s simply a place for other people, not like us.

  1. John Cleese has also stated that his comments are in no way shape or form about the racial makeup of the city.

  2. Must be why he moved to the Caribbean…

  3. One of the truths we must acknowledge is that London’s status as Remain Central has everything to do with it being a foreign city.

    Cleese said it wasn’t an English city anymore Pete and has since qualified his comments saying they weren’t related to the racial make up of the city. Your little Englander slip is showing.

    Still, astute observation from a bloke who lives in the Caribbean.

  4. //A place with no grounding culture, no hinterland and nothing for which to strive or protect. That’s because it’s full of foreigners //

    That’s only part of it. A larger part is that the “grounding culture” is disappearing anyway, even among British people. The largest foreign influence on culture in London is clearly from America; it affects what Londoners see and hear, how they behave and even how they speak.

    New York is in many ways a similar city. Yet it seems to have this “grounding culture” in very diverse ways; its people are proud of their city and patriotic in relation to their country. Yet it is full of “foreigners”; in fact, the pride and patriotism in America seems to be at least as strong among relative newcomers as it is among those with a longer American pedigree. You should think about these things a bit; maybe then you’ll arrive at the real cause of any problem there may be.

    No foreigners voted in the referendum.

  5. London’s status as Remain Central

    Eh? 40% of Londoners voted Leave. And before you say it, 33% of ethnic minorities also voted Leave.

  6. I live and work in and around London. I travel on trains, tube and buses. London is indeed chock full of non-English or Brits. A large metropolis like London has and always will attract people from around the world. And thus includes the tourists. But the numbers and diversity, a word I hate, has dramatically increased. So John Cleese is right, due to the increases the English have been displaced and London is no longer an English city.

  7. London born and bred white people are indeed probably a minority now in London but so what ? London is a great international city and is a magnet for people from around the world for millions of reasons. Nobody is forced to live here, they choose it, unless born here of course. It’s an ancient and modern city that has ebbed and flowed with history and it’s population organically develops as the ‘free market’ works its magic. What would supposedly small state Pete prefer. That it became a heavily govt. controlled Approved residents only forbidden city ?

  8. “So John Cleese is right, due to the increases the English have been displaced and London is no longer an English city.”

    Only if you define English by skin colour. The fact is that 63% of London’s population was born in the UK. So the majority of people in London were born in England.

  9. It looks like the biggest Remain vote percentage in the UK among major cities was…Aberdeen.

  10. Grandpa Simpson yells at clouds

    Nothing is what it used to be so get over it

  11. Capital cities have always attracted the most immigrants because there are more job opportunities and more immigrant communities for initial support. New York is a great example of this from 1850 to the present day (Irish, Italians, Jews), but the same phenomonen was seen in Vienna in 1900:

    ” With a population of 1.7 million, Vienna around 1900 was one of the largest urban centres in Europe. In comparison, London had a population of 4.5 million, Paris 2.7 million and Berlin 1.9 million. Around 1900, the largest city of the Habsburg Monarchy experienced a phase of considerable growth. A few decades saw the population triple thanks to huge migration. Thus at that time, only 46% of those living in Vienna were actually born there, while the majority had arrived from elsewhere…”

  12. The Anglo Yugoslav greasy spoon caf in Ladbroke Grove was the best fried breakfast in London in the mid eighties. Just one of the many, many, many outside influences that make London one of the world’s greatest and most exciting cities.

    That’s because it’s full of foreigners with little love or affection for the great civilisation which made London the capital of the Empire, the greatest thing that ever happened to an undeserving world.

    Magnificent Pete 🙂

  13. Sorry about the footie Pete, I really thought the Arse were nailed on to beat Chelski, but it was Hazard the magnificent (now on his way to Real Madrid for £80 million) and Petr Czech will be welcome back at the Bridge. Even the owner made an appearance.

    I still expect the Sperz to sicken the Scousers on Saturday night in Madrid. Sorry again.

  14. I know a number, of ” London ” British , who live in town or in the suburbs, who supported remain.

    And truth be told, they’d be as hard working and patriotic as anyone else is.

  16. I was just coming to point out the flaws in Pete’s argument, but I see that many of the ATW regulars have already done that very well for me.

    So now the same people who tell us every day that diversity is great, and that London is great for being diverse, they now tell us that saying London isn’t English anymore is problematic and racist.

    But what does multicultural and diverse mean if not fewer white people? The logic of their own ideals would mean that they’d have to say back to John Cleese that, yes, London isn’t English anymore and that’s a good thing. The problem that they, lets say the Globalists, the problem they have is that they always want to be promoting a positive message, so they can’t just come out and say ”London is better when there are fewer English people in it” because that’s too triggering, it’s too raw, and honest.

    That’s the bottom line – if London is better with fewer English people in it, then why not just say so?

    So their fall back position is to deny that the English or Englishness exists, that way they aren’t committing a crime against humanity. But if we follow that line of thought through what is it that they mean when they celebrate diversity? For example, York isn’t very diverse, the Globalists and their lefty attack dogs would admit that, but if Englishness doesn’t exist then why is 90% ethnically English York less diverse than London?

    John Cleese and pretty much every other Englishman carries within his mind an ideal of what England should be, this transcends party politics and values systems, left vs right. And it is ethnic, I pointed out a while ago in another video that liberal Europeans have a disconnect between their politics and where they actually live, and where they go on holiday, when they plan a holiday in Tuscany they have an image in their minds of what will be there but it isn’t one which has the refugees that they campaigned to be settled there.
