747s TO THE KNACKER’S YARD

By Pete Moore On October 8th, 2020 at 7:28 pm

British Airways once operated the largest fleet of 747s in the world. Today the last two BA 747 flights left Heathrow and made the short hop to Kemble in Gloucestershire. Kemble Airfield is their graveyard.

BA was going to retire the fleet in a few year’s time anyway but the Chinese Communist Party brought that forward. Such is the way of the world. The 747 started operations in 1970. Just think of the millions of miles it has covered in the half-century since. It made the other side of the world so much more accessible for everyone. Designed as a front-loading transport plane, the nose would flip up so the cockpit had to be raised. Hence the famous bulge.

It’s only a machine but what a machine.

After the Presidential Debate I couldn’t watch this one.

THERE’S NO VEEP DEBATE TONIGHT

By Pete Moore On October 7th, 2020 at 7:04 pm

The debate will be between the Vice-President and the real Democratic nominee. If Biden wins the presidential election it will usher in a Harris Administration. If Biden wins he will be out in 6-12 months, and encouraged, behind the scenes, to get out from day one.

At least one person on the stage will have class. Mike Pence looks like he stepped out of the 1950s and is always well mannered. All decent people must wish him well in taking on the commie.

RARE GOOD NEWS

Two ex-British alleged Islamic State (IS) suspects have been charged in the US with terrorism offences over the killing of four American hostages.

Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh are accused of belonging to an IS cell dubbed “The Beatles” involved in kidnappings in Iraq and Syria …

The charges carry a maximum penalty of life in prison.

Life in a Supermax, I hope. No parole, no sympathy. Just the rest of their lives, in solitary, looking at a wall while slowly going insane.

Anyway, more good news: my sausage casserole was absolutely delicious. Made a load of it on Sunday and filled the freezer. I love getting stuck into hearty, warming grub as the nights draw in, don’t you?

PRAY FOR THE JOCKS

All pubs and restaurants across central Scotland are to be closed under new measures aimed at tackling a surge in coronavirus cases.

The new rules will apply to licensed premises across the central belt, including Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Pubs and restaurants will be able to open in other parts of Scotland – but can only serve alcohol outdoors.

It’s quite an achievement to be even more cack-handed than the British government in handling the Wuhan Flu. Generalissimo Sturgeon, take a curtsy.

Her acowed aim has always been to “eradicate” it. Yeah sure, that’ll work. Instead she’s eradicating the hospitality trade. God knows how many businesses are right on the line after no trade for months and splashing out on making your premises “Covid-safe” (what a horrible, supine phrase.) Many won’t make it back now. Well done to the woman drawing a fat salary and a solid-gold pension for stiffing thousands of people.

And for what? How many lives have been lost to the virus across all of Scotland today? One. Not one hundred or one thousand. One death, of someone “who tested positive”. We are governed by people who are literally mad.

As the Italian cruise liner ‘Achille Lauro‘ sails out of Alexandria, Egypt, four Palestinian Liberation Front terrorists hijack it, demanding a passage to Syria. The next day hijackers will murder a wheelchair-bound American tourist, Leon Klinghoffer, sparking worldwide outrage.

A REAL Holocaust Memorial

By Mike Cunningham On October 7th, 2020 at 11:52 am

I have watched and listened to this Tory Government make many promises, make a few correct decisions, such as the ‘Push for Brexit’, tarnished as it became with the full weight of the ‘Remain’ Establishment and the vocal support of a Speaker who had lost any pretence at impartiality; but, another three months, and we shall be out: Deal or No Deal. 

But its accomplishments pale into the shade, when  the mistakes are laid out and listed: such as the whole farrago of the CoronaVirus catastrophe, both in terms of health, and of the economy; of sticking with the sure lunacy of the so-called Climate Change Act, which will reduce us to penury within a decade; along with many more stupidities.

But I write today on a singularly crazy idea, grasped of course by this so-called Government because they love to be seen to be be ‘inclusive’ and full of ‘Diversity’’; along with being shown to be full-on opposed to any scent of Anti-Semitism. The proposal, turned flat down by a prescient Westminster City Council, was for the construction of a Holocaust Memorial; to be built along the shallow edge of Victoria Tower Gardens: which is a Grade II-listed park and forms a small triangular green space next to Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament – collectively designated as a World Heritage Site. 

My views on this abortion are many and varied, but the greatest objection is simply one of logistics; and, simply put states the blindingly obvious: You would have to travel to London to see the damn thing.   

When I was but thirteen years old, our History teacher told  all us schoolboys to read one book, and one book only, if we were to understand the greatest War ever fought. He told us that the Battles; of Kursk, of Britain, at Alamein, of Midway, Pearl Harbour and at Falaise; and of the massacres such as Oradour-sur-Glane, Babi-Yar could only be viewed in true perspective if we also understood the true history of the Nazi Reich from rise to fall: and this would and could be viewed in one book: namely the Scourge of the Swastika. As I turned the pages of that awful book, as I viewed the pin-sharp photographs of the lines of mass graves and dumping-grounds, filled with human skeletons, it was only then that I realised what the whole Allied World had been fighting against. Very few politicians of that decade understood the real threat of Hitler’s Third Reich. Winston Churchill did, but Neville Chamberlain took us into War only because Hitler invaded Poland. 

The true scale of the Nazi Atrocities, apart that is from the genocides practiced against the Occupied Nations, were only revealed when the Russians began overrunning the Death Camps like Auschwitz: and these discoveries were later confirmed after the British and Americans liberated such places as Belsen and Dachau. The unreal views of the living skeleton survivors, amidst the piles of dead, were remorselessly covered by the Allied Camera teams. This film was censored by the British and American Governments, and was only released a couple of years ago under the grim title; ‘Night Will Fall’

So, folks; here’s my proposal, which is to tear up and discard the proposal to build this weird and practically useless underground  so-called ‘Learning Centre’, together with these equally silly bronze fins which remind people of nothing at all: and instead fund the purchase of 90,000 hardback copies of ‘The Scourge of the Swastika’; along with the production and reproduction of 90,000 DVD copies of ‘Night Will Fall’. These items will be distributed amongst all, repeat ALL education establishments with an enrolled age of 15 years or older. The Book will form part of the Syllabus, along with timely showing of the DVD to those schools, colleges, Universities: so that the young can, should and will learn of the capacity, within a nation from whence sprang genius; of Man’s INHUMANITY to his fellow man.

Caught red handed……

“Per FBI verbal request, CIA provides the below examples of information the CROSSFIRE HURRICANE fusion cell has gleaned to date,” the memo continued. ““An exchange [REDACTED] discussing US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning US presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering US elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.”

“This memorandum contains sensitive information that could be source revealing. It should be handled with particular attention to compartmentation and need-to-know. To avoid the possible compromise of the source, any investigative action taken in response to the information below should be coordinated in advance with Chief Counterintelligence Mission Center, Legal,” the memo, which was sent to Comey and Strzok, read. “It may not be used in any legal proceeding—including FISA applications—without prior approval…”
