This was the week that many schools went back young kids started to leave the best and anyone who is a parent will surely see the beauty and sadness in the lyric to this song …listen to it and don’t be so bloody judgemental.
Because Friday night is Music Night
Not my usual style, but my rocker roller credentials can take the hit. This is all new to me. I’ve never heard of Sam Smith, who’s apparently some fella from London, let alone any of his stuff but I caught this today while toiling at the coalface of capitalism. It’s a bit of a chick’s tune maybe, but I thought it was alright. In fact I assumed the singer was black, till I saw the video, which I suppose is an accolade for a white soul singer.
As always, link to whatever you like –
Unexpected candour here!
Romanian immigration is a good thing because it reduces unemployment – in Romania, the country’s president has said. Traian Basescu said the number of jobless Romanians leaving for Britain was ‘helping us very much’. Mr Basescu attempted to ease concerns over the number of immigrants arriving in the UK.
He said many would return to Romania when wages in Eastern Europe started to match those in Britain.
I suggest that that will be sometime just AFTER hell freezes over. I place no blame on those who flock here for a better life – unless they are criminals of course! But I detest our political class (all breeds) who preside over this with unblinking eyes.
I was on the BBC Nolan Show today. You can hear me here - around 30 mins of debate on the topic of the NHS. The debate was focused on a proposal from a “think tank” that “rich pensioners” should be stripped of universal benefits and that anyone over 40 should pay even MORE tax. I say what I think.
Migrants in Calais have taken part in a protest asking for human rights protection amid rising tensions at the French port. There is an increased police presence in the town after dozens of migrants tried to storm a ferry bound for Dover. Police are giving drivers guidance to avoid unwittingly taking on migrants as some seeking to enter the UK have attempted to jump into vehicles. A large influx of migrants has arrived at Calais in recent months. Earlier this week scores of illegal migrants tried to run up the main ramp of a ferry bound for the UK, but were foiled when the crew raised the ramp and turned a fire hose on them. They were later detained by French police. Mayor of Calais Natacha Bouchart has threatened to blockade the port unless the UK helps to control the number of migrants, claiming the town has been “taken hostage” by more than 1,000 migrants who want to cross the channel.
So, this is about “human rights” is it? How about the “human rights” of those in the UK who do not WANT these illegals coming into our country? Don’t they count? As I pointed out on the Jon Gaunt show on FUBARR Radio today, what this really shows is that Britain does not have a border, and certainly not a strong border. Our country is part of a vast EU which is showing itself hapless at defending itself to the tsunami from North Africa and beyond.
Woman ‘found beheaded’ in London garden
London (AFP) – A woman was found beheaded on Thursday in a back garden in north London, according to British media reports, but police said the attack was not linked to terrorism.
Police discovered the body in the suburb of Edmonton after being alerted at midday by local residents who said a man with a knife was attacking a cat or dog.
A 25-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and is in custody, they said.
In the story there are NO names or identifiers of the victim or the perpetrator….. What have they no names? They say it most definitely is NOT terror related. I just want to know who believes in chopping the wife’s head off to end the argument.
Am very sorry to read of the death of one of the truly great original wits.
I have been a fan for decades and loved her acid one-liners! Here are a just a few that made ME chuckle, but I am sure you will have your favourites.
“The first time I see a jogger smiling, I’ll consider it.”
“The only way I can get a man to touch me at this age is plastic surgery.”
Oh, and she had good musical taste.
I saw her in concert two years ago and she was still cutting edge, still able to shock the audience and still so funny. I am deeply saddened by her passing.
Calls for “truly crushing sanctions” on Russia. Presumably Arizona’s aircon systems aren’t powered by Russian gas. With winter coming and much of Europe and Scandinavia dependent on Russian gas, McCain will likely be told to get stuffed (which ought to happen often).
It always raises a chuckle when a big American political beast spouts off about how goverments shouldn’t be able to get away with aggression against sovereign countries, as Kerry did recently and McCain today. This is how America is “exceptional” I assume, because Washington is always the exception to the rule.
Mind how you go in any case. We know what happened to Libya and Syria shortly after this madman went to those countries. No sooner did he pop up in Maidan, cheering on the violent putsch, than war broke out there too. Now he’s back, and nothing good is guaranteed.
