Everyday is 1984 in 2016! Just have a perusal of this!
“It’s only May, but I think I’ve found the euphemism of the year: According to Team Obama, criminals should now be declared “justice-involved individuals.” The neo-Orwellianism comes to us from the bizarre flurry of last-minute diktats, regulations and bone-chilling threats collectively known to fanboys as Obama’s Gorgeous Goodbye.
In another of those smiley-faced, but deeply sinister, “Dear Colleague” letters sent to universities and colleges this week, Obama’s Education Secretary John King discouraged colleges from asking applicants whether they were convicted criminals.
An accompanying pamphlet was called “Beyond the Box: Increasing Access to Higher Education for Justice-Involved Individuals.”
So rapists, burglars, armed robbers and drug dealers aren’t criminals anymore. These folks are simply “involved” with “justice,” according to Obamanoids.”
Twisting language out of all shape is the skill of the politician and in particular the Left have an expertise on it.

At a time of global jihad, tanking economies, mass immigration, the political Left manage to choose an issue which REALLY counts – allowing those who “identify” as female to use female bathrooms. Springsteen and Ringo have led the charge and Obama has come out (whoops) on the side of the deviant lobby. Hang on, I hear you say, it’s all perfectly harmless and nothing can go wrong. Right? Wrong.
A man faces multiple charges after he allegedly choked an 8-year-old girl until she lost consciousness in the restroom of a Chicago restaurant last weekend. Police say when the girl’s mother came into the stall to rescue her daughter, Hartstirn shoved the woman.
A TRANSGENDER (sic) woman who was kicked out of the ladies loos of a UK nightclub has spoken of her disgust at the complaints of fellow clubbers.
Listen, all this pathetic populist pandering to freaks who are in total denial will end so badly.

Well, my weekend has finished and I am back in my lair! (lol) But what a weekend.
On Friday I enjoyed a very pleasant afternoon Tea at The Ritz. This was a wonderful occasion and the Hotel is a gem, a grand dame, of course. A piano gently plays as a genteel afternoon passes by.
I didn’t realise it but this Hotel is where lady Thatcher spend her final days and she died here back in 2013. The Hotel has not forgotten the Iron Lady…she watches all those who enter. I was so pleased to see this.
I went to the London Palladium on Saturday night to see Elvis Costello. Here I am in front of the venue, hamming it up!
He was, of course, magnificent. He was on stage for 2 1/2 hours – not bad for a 61 year old armed only with half a dozen guitars and a piano. For an encore, the support band, Larkin Poe, joined him for a thrilling finale. He’s writing a musical and premiered a few songs. Truly amazing – and written in the style of proper 1950’s Music Hall. What is truly great about Elvis is that his music evolves. He may have been a pop star for about three years in the late 1970’s but he has moved on to embrace all sorts of music.
Were this not enough, I was at Wembley on Sunday afternoon to watch my football team, Grimsby Town, play Forest Green, with the winner gaining promotion to the Football league. This was our 4th time arriving at this stage. We lost the previous three BUT, on Sunday, we WON!!!!!!!!!! 3-1 – and it felt good. Here is a pic of the fans celebrating the momentous win. For the past six years we have been out of the football league so our wilderness years have gone. I was at Wembley last year when Grimsby met Bristol Rovers and it was during that game I got the news my brother-in-law had passed away. So you can imagine there was a poignancy for me to back again and enjoying all this, and he is gone and his wife a widow. It’s a funny old world.
To celebrate I had dinner here last night..
And so, I arrived home later afternoon. Was it fun? Don’t start me talking….

RIYADH: The police, along with members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice (Haia), arrested an unrelated couple who were traveling in a car.
Saudi Arabia clearly dodged a bullet, though I sincerely hope it doesn’t dodge any nearby asteroids.
The BBC has been playing me many clips today of the Prime Minister and others insulting Donald Trump. They’re the kind of people who will then pucker up and kiss the backsides of the primitives who make and enforce “laws” such as these.

What terrible luck for all those fans who went to Old Trafford for Man Utd vs Bournemouth yesterday. Cor dear, it’s a real slog up the motorway from the south to Manchester. The Bournemouth fans travelled a long way too (dah-dum-tish!)
But we have our culprit, the man who forgot about the fake bomb he’d taped to the back of a toilet door, causing the match to be called off at the last minute.
Christopher Reid, a retired Scotland Yard police chief …
Say no more. You could have guessed. The fat doughnut-munchers love a bit of private security work when they’ve qualified for their even fatter pensions. Mind, he doesn’t have the trusty state shield of anonymity and “lessons will be learned” to protect him now. He’s in the productive sector now, where you get just rewards. That’s why he’s had to fess up and take full responsibility with his mug splashed across the papers.
It could be worse though. Utd might have contracted the CIA to run security checks. On past form they’d have left high explosive all over the place.

That’s the kicker from Oborne. His weekend piece takes apart Cameron and Osborne for their lies, their cheating and for their corruption at the head of the Remain campaign. Every word of it is true.
The BBC’s Andrew Neil this morning asked Ian Duncan Smith (Brexit) if, in the event of Remain winning, it will be the end of the EU matter. There’s no chance of that happening. It could only happen in the event of a high turnout and a clear, significant majority, and that won’t happen. Either way, the issue is not going away and it could destroy the Tory Party.
“Europe” has long been a festering sore in the party. It’s now a gaping wound, with the party split and the referendum campaigns becoming extraordinarily bitter. The rank and file are broadly pro-Brexit. They’ve noticed the lies and contempt thrown at them by Cameron and Osborne, and that they’ve co-opted foreigners to lie and collude against the British people. They won’t forget this campaign any time soon.
Even if Remain wins the referendum, the party leadership will find itself isolated and lost of support. Some have said that Cameron must go if Brexit wins. He might have to go in any case.

IT’S funny where we end up when we start clicking. I was reading a rugby blog 15 minutes ago and followed a link, then another, then one or two more, and that led me to find this beauty:
The piece is “Modesty”, by the Venetian sculptor Antonio Corradini. I’ll be honest, it made gasp inwardly. I should think alot of people do when they realise it’s not draped in silk but is carved from a single block of marble. So I thought I’d put it up here, because others might appreciate seeing it also.
A high point of European civilisation, to be sure. Speaking of which, here’s another. The Eurovision Song Contest is just starting …

A WHITE HOUSE national security advisor this week let slip his opinion of reporters from the “legitimate” media, as I recall it was once described in these here parts. To the Washington Post:
“All these newspapers used to have foreign bureaus,” he said. “Now they don’t. They call us to explain to them what’s happening in Moscow and Cairo. Most of the outlets are reporting on world events from Washington. The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That’s a sea change. They literally know nothing.”
It’s in a piece around how the Obama administration misled the public on negotiations with Tehran by using a naive and compliant media, their “compadres”. We see it alot here also, where journalists are often little more than copy/paste merchants re-posting what political press officers mail them.

CAN Remainiacs call on any backers who aren’t funded by the EU? This list swiped from Guido:
That’s a grand total of 160 million euros. As Guido says, it’s no wonder PwC thinks Brexit would be a “serious shock”. It’d be a serious shock to their incomes.
And I think we may have discovered the reason why Jeremy Corbyn ditched a life’s opposition to the EU. Just look at those fat trade unionists lower down, wallowing in the confiscated earnings of the proletariat.
Speaking of tunes, DV will be gutted when he realises that while he’s bopping along to Elvis Costello tomorrow night, the rest of us will be watching the last ever Eurovision Song Contest with a British entry. There’s no way they’ll let us take part if we “leave Europe”.

Shocked, I tell you .
Can you imagine the most common occupation of those named in the Panama Papers leak? Strap your socks on:
But we need governments to control “greedy” businesses.
