A TOUCH OF CLASS

By Pete Moore On September 10th, 2018 at 6:56 pm

After Selena Williams leaves a bad taste in the mouth (you can take them out of the ghetto …), how refreshing to have one’s faith in good sportsmanship restored.

Alistair Cook has today played his last Test innings for England, scoring 147 against India at The Oval. What a great player he’s been, and what a way to bow out. The knock makes him the fifth highest scoring Test match batsmen ever. And the Indian team shook his hand before he walked off. That’s how you do it. A bit of respect. A bit of class.

BRAVO PATRIOTS

By Pete Moore On September 10th, 2018 at 6:29 pm

Strength and honour to the Sweden Democrats.

The moderate centrists gained 18 per cent of the vote in the Swedish general election. It’s a blow to the EU and globalists, because the extreme pro-immigration groups are pretty much tied and neither has a majority. It means that the Sweden Democrats would be kingmakers, except that the extremists have declared that they will not work with them. So it looks like proportional representation will deliver what it always delivers – unstable minority government.

The major lesson is that the moderate surge continues across Europe. Globalists had declared that it had been halted with the election of Macron. Alas, their hopes are dashed. Free movement, Brexit, Trump and mass immigration have completely changed the political face of European countries, upsetting the old, cozy arrangements.

EUROPE DEFEATS TERRORISM

By Pete Moore On September 10th, 2018 at 6:21 pm

If nothing is classified as terror, there is no terror. See, that’s logic.

Two British tourists were among seven wounded after a man attacked people with a knife and iron bar in Paris.

People tried to hold back the attacker by throwing pentanque balls, according to a witness.

The suspect – who was subdued by the public and unconscious when police arrived – is reported to be an Afghan national …

They said four people were in a critical condition, while a judicial source said there was “no initial sign” the attack was linked to terrorism.

Maybe he tripped and fell on seven people, accidentally stabbing them. Maybe the Afghan is another mentally ill Norwegian. Maybe he’s just innocently celebrating his culture. Who knows?

What I do know is that a 22 year old man was stabbed to death in Germany this weekend, and that two Afghans have been detained. Call me an old-fashioned throwback, but maybe it’d be a good idea to stop this immigration lark from backward cultures.

Suffer little children…

By David Vance On September 9th, 2018 at 7:46 pm

Some stories make you stop and think.

First meet the family…

Yes, meet the Dravens.

Britain’s first gender-fluid family are preparing for total transformation as both parents are set to have gender reassignment operations.

Say what?

Louise and Nikki Draven, who are parents to five-year-old Star Cloud, are planning to undergo the surgery and be in their ‘ideal bodies’ by the time their son is ten. Biological father Louise, 32 – who Star already calls mummy  – is to become a woman and said the change has been ‘a long time coming.’ Star’s biological mother Nikki is set to undergo a female-to-male procedure and will be called Charlie.

And now the really disturbing bit…

Star is being raised as gender neutral – with his parents focusing on raising a ‘person’ not a ‘boy’ – is said to have a ‘five-year-old’s understanding’ of the families situation.

Can you imagine how this kid will be affected by the actions of his parents? Can you imagine the help HE will require as he ages? In my mind, this is very close to child abuse. The parents have a right to act in whatever way they want (so long as they are not using public funds to indulge their mental aberration) but the child is different, surely? The child needs protection from the parents.

NOW WE GET MONKEYPOX

By Pete Moore On September 8th, 2018 at 6:46 pm

The first ever case of monkeypox has been recorded in the UK.

The rare viral infection was recorded on Friday in a Nigerian national staying at a naval base in Cornwall, Public Health England (PHE) said.

The patient was transferred to the expert infectious disease unit at the Royal Free Hospital in London on Saturday morning.

They are believed to have contracted the infection in Nigeria before travelling to the UK.

Oh great. After TB, stabbings and Somalis out of their minds on khat, something called monkeypox is the latest African import. You sometimes wonder why our magnificent forbears bothered eradicating so many infectious diseases by their brilliance.

OBAMA GOES ROGUE, DUMPS ON TRUMP

By Pete Moore On September 8th, 2018 at 12:46 pm

Former US President Barack Obama has launched a stinging attack on Donald Trump and the “crazy stuff that is coming out of this White House”.

And fancy words and highfalutin rhetoric and blah blah.

This is a disgraceful breach of protocol by Barack Hussein Obama. The tradition, of course, is that previous incumbents do not speak about current presidents. One can understand why. However, this civilising habit is now under grave threat. Such are consequences of choosing radical outsiders with no natural affinity for tradition.

To President Trump’s credit he has refused to rise to slur and taunt. He has merely informed the media that he fell asleep. Well he’s a busy man who needs his rest.

I’m sure I speak for the ATW commentariat in expressing my outrage at the hypocrisy too. One of the wilder claims made against President Trump is that he does not abide by norms. One cannot make such claims while not abiding by longstanding norms too, can one?

I’ll leave the comments open to that everyone can express their outrage.

ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On September 7th, 2018 at 7:30 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night: France has changed ..

Another week done at the coalface of capitalism. Well done the productive. Some say it’s #nationalbeerloversday. I ask when isn’t it?

So it’s Canvey Island’s finest tonight. They were always full on, even when the audience was a mix of French mothers and children. And a strange bloke in a mac. One of the more bizarre gigs. One to treasure though. Rock n roll must be haram over there by now.

Have yourselves a great weekend. As always, feel free to share your fav sounds down below –

LIAR LIAR, BLOOMERS ON FIRE

By Pete Moore On September 7th, 2018 at 7:21 pm

Berlin (AFP) – The head of Germany’s domestic intelligence agency Friday raised doubts about reports of a “hunt on foreigners” by neo-Nazi mobs in a flashpoint city last month, directly contradicting Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Leaders shouldn’t lie. They ought to be dignified and noble and above such things. Eh libs?

Sad!

WHY DOES THE MEDIA DO IT?

By Pete Moore On September 7th, 2018 at 7:05 pm

I’m under no illusions as to what the ATW commentariat thinks of me. I’ve read the comments. I don’t fool myself. No no no, don’t jump in. A man has to face the truth. And the truth is that I am that tough, fearless Englishman of your imaginations. Oh yes.

But not always. There are the odd occasions when fear grips hard and the blood runs cold. That’s when I see a spider. On the arachnophobia scale I’m almost falling off the end. Cannot stand the buggers. I once almost caused a hotel to empty in Australia when I saw a Huntsman spider by my foot, so loud were my shrieks. The image still gives me the willies.

So I really do wish the news sites wouldn’t accompany a story about spiders with enormous images of spiders. The BBC is at it today. This is the story:

Spider season: How to tackle an influx of arachnids

Great! Just what I need, I think. That’s what I’ll do this weekend. I’ll spider-proof my home. So I click the link, and – there’s an enormous photo of an enormous spider right at the top of the story. Is that necessary? Really? I know it’s just a photo, but the people most likely to click the link – hard, tough arachnophobes like me – don’t need to see it. Such things stay in the mind. They all do it. The Daily Mail especially, damn you Dacre.

Really, some things are not necessary.

A GOVERNMENT OF ALL THE TALENTLESS

By Pete Moore On September 7th, 2018 at 6:48 pm

“I didn’t understand things like when elections are fought for example in Northern Ireland – people who are nationalists don’t vote for unionist parties and vice-versa.”

That’s Karen Bradley, a Tory MP. It would be a surprising admission if she were only that, an MP. She also happens to be the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland.

She made that admission, and a few others, in an interview with PoliticsHome. How did she get the gig? Because she’s a close ally of Theresa May, and that’s it. That tells you all about politics. I don’t expect ministers to know everything about their portfolio. But Bradley’s admission goes way beyond that. It reveals an unworldliness about her, and a lack of interest in her country and current affairs.

She was presented as an A-List Tory candidate. She was given preferred treatment and fast-tracked to a seat in Cameron’s rush to “diversify” the party. By clinging to May she’s ended up in the Cabinet. But she has no interest in her country. So I’d be pretty sure that she’s a principle-free zone, the type who will vote any way that the whips order.

That’s how you end up in a Tory Cabinet.
