THE BLASTED CHINESE AGAIN

By Pete Moore On February 15th, 2020 at 6:40 pm

I’d love to know what it is about the evil Chinese government which enthralls the Tories. Oh silly me, its the Tories. Therefore it’s money and connections and more money.

The UK and China have held “preliminary discussions” over giving Beijing’s state-owned railway firm a role in building the HS2 high-speed rail line.

However, government officials said no “concrete commitments” had been made.

China’s state railway company said it could build the line in just five years and at a much lower cost, according to a letter seen by Building magazine.

I remain stupefied that the Tories approved construction of the Hinckley Point C nuclear power station, by the Chinese state, in 2016. Huawei being green flagged for our 5G network will forever baffle me. These are just the latest in a very long list of UK-Chinese links. The Chinese Ambassador spoke to the Conservative Friends of the Chinese a week ago and laid some of it out. We can thank David Cameron and George Osborne in the main. They loved sucking up to the evil Chinese.

Let’s be clear: this is exactly like allowing Stalin or Hitler to build our infrastructure. The very idea would have been preposterous, but the Tories are throwing everything at a truly monstrous regime.

I don’t care that China is getting richer. I don’t care that it has become a workshop for the globe. The Chinese communists are evil expansionists. No possible good will come from sucking up to them. One day British politicians will find that they are in too deep. So deep that it is not only impossible to back away, but that they will be drawn in ever deeper.

No, I don’t believe at all that the evil Chinese communists are in it only for commerce and money. It is about power and leverage. These deals are a part of the Belt and Road Initiative, which is a key strategy in Chinese Foreign policy. One day a British Prime Minister will be told that if the UK sides with Japan in a dispute, or votes against China at the UN, or gives a preferential deal to a non-Chinese firm, then our trains might stop running, or our hospitals fail, or the nuclear power plant will develop problems. Mark my words. The Chinese government is an evil force with global dominance its aim. The less we have to do with it the better.

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On February 14th, 2020 at 6:31 pm

Because Friday night is Jukebox Night, and a happy St Valentine’s Day to all the hot chicks out there.

No sooner does one storm go than another one arrives. I’m pretty sure it has rained and winded incessantly since October. Yeah I love working outside sometimes.

So you have yourselves a good weekend. I’ve decided on a quick trip to Sainsbury’s in the morning and nothing else. As always, feel free to share your top sounds down below. Oh and my choice? Yes, I am a bit of a 10CC fan.

I WAS RIGHT ABOUT THE CANOLA VIRUS

By Pete Moore On February 14th, 2020 at 6:21 pm

A couple of weeks ago I suggested that we might like to stop flights from China and travelers who have been to China. Of course that didn’t happen.

Now more and more cases of Chinese Bat Virus are turning up every day in the UK. Every day authorities are becoming more stretched trying to trace carriers and anyone they might have been in contact with.

We can avoid a lot of aggro just by doing what I think.

BACK IN YOUR BOX, TWITTER POLICE

By Pete Moore On February 14th, 2020 at 6:16 pm

It comes to something when a judge makes the right decision and sides with liberty and you think “wow”.

The police response to an ex-officer’s allegedly transphobic tweets was unlawful, the High Court has ruled.

Harry Miller was visited by Humberside Police at work in January last year after a complaint about his tweets.

He was told he had not committed a crime, but it would be recorded as a non-crime “hate incident”.

The court found the force’s actions were a “disproportionate interference” with his right to freedom of expression.

Officers visited Mr Miller’s workplace and then spoke with him on the phone, and he was left with the impression “that he might be prosecuted if he continued to tweet”, according to a judge.

Speaking after the ruling, Mr Miller, from Lincolnshire, said: “This is a watershed moment for liberty – the police were wrong to visit my workplace, wrong to ‘check my thinking'” […]

Mr Miller posted a number of tweets between November 2018 and January 2019 about transgender issues as part of the debate about reforming the Gender Recognition Act 2004.

In one tweet Mr Miller wrote: “I was assigned mammal at birth, but my orientation is fish. Don’t mis-species me.”

This tweet was among several others which were reported to Humberside Police as being allegedly transphobic.

This is a very important decision and a harsh rebuke for the police. Mr Justice Julian Knowles cited JS Mill and Orwell in his summation, noting that we have never had a Cheka, a Gestapo or a Stasi in this country. Well there’s the benefit of knowing your history, right there.

In short, it means that no matter how nice Loretta’s underwear drawer, if he has a beard and a cock then you can say that he’s a bloke. And the Twitter police can go do one.

THE FRENCH ARE STILL FRENCH

By Pete Moore On February 14th, 2020 at 6:04 pm

And thank the Lord for that as well. That the French are there, in mind and spirit, is always a useful counterpoint.

A sex video has ended French ruling party candidate Benjamin Griveaux’s hopes of becoming mayor of Paris.

The ex-spokesman for President Emmanuel Macron’s government, who was already trailing in the race, was apparently targeted by a Russian protest artist accusing him of hypocrisy.

“No-one should be subjected to such abuse,” said Mr Griveaux, 42.

The video, showing a man in a compromising position, quickly spread on social media late on Thursday.

Petr Pavlensky, who sought asylum from Russia in 2017, said he had posted the video online.

It seems that M. Griveaux had his old boy out, on video. The Russian somehow got hold of it (the video, I mean) and posted it online. French cultural attitudes towards the private lives of the great and the good are alien to our Anglo Saxon ways. Many a scandal has been covered up. Despite French tastes for the louche and degenerate, the public actually knowing how louche and degenerate the great and the good are has always been frowned on.

And so it persists today, even in the age of social media and globalism in everything. Left and Right have united to condemn the posting of the video. It’s hypocritical, anti-democratic and authoritarian in many ways of course, but the conservative in me is happy to see that not everything erodes.

THEY HAVE TO GO BACK

By Pete Moore On February 13th, 2020 at 6:43 pm

Three men (sic) have been jailed for sexually abusing a schoolgirl in Oxford following an investigation into child sexual exploitation.

Naim Khan, 41, Mohammed Nazir, 44, and Raheem Ahmed, 42, were found guilty of 35 offences against the girl when she was aged between 13 and 15.

Immigration from primitive cultures is a catastrophe. We can make it better, but the disastrous social policies of the last sixty years have to be reversed. What is done can be undone.

THE LEFT CAN’T MEME

By Pete Moore On February 13th, 2020 at 6:39 pm

Mike Bloomberg campaign pays influencers for memes

Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg is paying social media influencers to back him in the hope of reaching younger voters.

His campaign has commissioned some of the internet’s top-viral creators to generate content about him that has reached tens of millions of followers.

It’s a waste of money. A good meme is built on the sharp, wounding humour which comes from an insouciant attitude. The Right has that naturally. Rightists are born with it. So they have the images and the pithy lines on tap. The Left is too earnest, so it won’t work. No matter how much money Bloomberg throws at it, Trump supporters will naturally produce more and much better content.
