THEN AND NOW….

FAKE NEWS….

By David Vance On June 14th, 2017 at 10:08 pm

Here is esteemed Channel 4 ‘journalist” Jon Snow – a doyen of the Left.

First, a lovely selfie! This is Jon with..oh gosh…the Sinn Fein gang outside the Commons.

Then, this charming tweet from Jon.

And then, in for the kill…..

And then, once his deceit is confounded…

Just another Provo apologist, but caught out this time.

 

TORN….

I have no time for him BUT I thought this was interesting;

Tim Farron has said he is to step down as leader of the Liberal Democrats, less than a week after the election. In a statement, he said he was “torn between living as a faithful Christian and serving as a political leader”. He said he should have dealt “more wisely” with questions relating to his faith during the election campaign, including his views on gay sex.

Farron was hounded during the election campaign on whether or not he thought homosexuality was ‘sinful’ He said it was not, having previously indicated that his Faith taught him that it was. I guess my point is that HE is saying one cannot lead a Political Party and be a Christian. I disagree. But you cannot lead a political party that is profoundly anti-Christian IF you are a Christian.

BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS

By Pete Moore On June 14th, 2017 at 7:41 pm

Terrorism is terrorism

So the nutjob who tried to kill a load of Republicans today turns out to be a Bernie-voting democratic socialist (sic), who was obsessed with Russian conspiracies and radicalised by Rachel Maddow and The Daily Show.

You have to be long past the point of surprise. The media and the Left in general has wallowed in hysterical, increasingly violent rhetoric for too long. Violent assaults by Leftists are so common they barely raise comment. Now they are triggering the unhinged to attempt massacres.

They need to disavow their recent past immediately and reflect on how words have consequences.

THE DISGUSTING CORBYN

By Pete Moore On June 14th, 2017 at 7:25 pm

THIS was Grenfell Tower last night, a 27-storey block of flats in West London –

The confirmed death toll is twelve, but that will go much higher. It contains 127 flats and the first 999 call was made at 12.45am. Many will have died without waking up. Even now, some 16 hours later, the Fire Brigade says that there are isolated pockets of fire in what is a blackened, charred building. They haven’t yet started a room-by-room search. But that’s not too soon for Jeremy Corbyn, who is already blaming the government:

@LBC

“Jeremy Corbyn has told LBC that the #GrenfellTower fire is the price we have paid for local government cuts”

Not too soon, but no surprise either for a genuinely unpleasant man. Fifty fire engines attended, the first arriving six minutes after the first 999 call. No scrimping there. The injured have been treated at at numerous London hospitals. No scrimping there. The block had a 10 million quid refurbishment last year. No bloody scrimping there either.

But what do the facts matter to a hardcore communist? Nothing of course. Only power matters, and any means to get it are justified.

SPOT THE HOMOPHOBES….

By David Vance On June 13th, 2017 at 6:27 pm

The DUP has been pilloried by the UK media, led by the BBC (natch) for being “homophobic”. Here are a few examples of what I have read in the past few days;

Who are the DUP? Meet the homophobic, anti-abortion Northern Irish party teaming up with the Tories

Tory-DUP deal: Ruth Davidson ‘receives assurances’ from PM over gay rights

So by way of BALANCE, here is an interesting fact.

DUP policy on same sex marriage is the same as Germany, Austria, Italy, Greece, Cyprus and six other EU member states.

Are they all “homophobes” too? Just wondering.

OUR RICH EUROPEAN HOMES…

By David Vance On June 13th, 2017 at 5:57 pm

Further to my post on the impact of the requirement for EU nurses to speak English, I offer you this by way of further substantiation.

Italian nurse spoke such poor English colleague was forced to mime, hearing told.

Say what?

“An Italian nurse was so poor at English a colleague was forced to mime to communicate with her, a Nursing and Midwifery Council hearing was told.  Antonella Indrizzi took a job in the UK after answering an overseas recruitment campaign in Italy in February 2015. But her colleagues at King’s Mill Hospital, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, soon found her grasp of the English language was of concern. There were numerous incidences of patients refusing to have her look after them due to her “extremely poor” language skills, a committee heard.”

But relax, it’s not just nurses.

An Italian doctor has been suspended from practising medicine in the UK after failing English language tests.  Dr Alessandro Teppa is one of the first EU doctors to face disciplinary action over language skills following a change in the law in 2014. His suspension will last at least nine months, the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) has ruled.  Another medic – a Polish doctor who failed language tests three times – has been allowed to work under supervision.”

How inspiring. And then this…

 

SOFT BORDER, SOFT BREXIT?

By David Vance On June 13th, 2017 at 11:13 am

Remarkable number of lies being put about by the pro-Remain anti-Brexit media and one of the juiciest is that the the DUP want a “soft Brexit”. Wrong. Here’s what former senior DUP strategist Richard Bullick has to say on the subject;

Richard Bullick, ex special adviser to DUP leader Arlene Foster, said the party would not back down on calling for the UK to leave the single market and customs union. Mr Bullick said an “arrangement” would be needed between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to ensure there was not a hard border.

UK Secretary of State for Brexit David Davis has said the same!

A “soft border” with the ROI is NOT the same as a “soft Brexit” and the lying media should realise we see through their odious misrepresentations. Clear?

UNDERSTANDING MEDIA….

By David Vance On June 13th, 2017 at 10:42 am

 

It’s a theme I regularly mention but I wanted to devote an entire post to it. I am referring to the death of the legacy media – TV, Radio and Print.

If you look at the figures in terms of viewers and readers, they are in serious decline. If you look at the 18-25 yrs age demographic, they are dead in the water! Most Newspapers don’t make money anymore and are all in stages of retreat. Even the mighty Fox News is in free fall. Good. Here in the UK, the State Broadcaster the BBC is mostly insulated from the free market because of the wicked Licence Tax it forces on us, but just LOOK at what happened to it when it ventured into the world of choice.

Technology is changing the world. We no longer watch TV in the way that we once did. We like immediate news, on the go, on our phones and iPads and we love access to a variety of opinion. This is pure poison to the controlling legacy media as it means their influence is weakened.

A channel like Youtube is now bigger than most terrestrial TV channels. As some ATW readers will know, I have set up my own Youtube channel. In there past three weeks I have had over 150,000 people view my posts. Social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook are what many people now turn to when things happen. I have 45,000+ people following me on Twitter – a decent audience for my commentary. This past month 25 million people saw my tweets. Let that sink in.

Just last week, I started doing Live Periscopes and have had over 10,000 views of “my mug”. This is where the media is going. The old media models don’t work so well anymore. Life has moved on and technology is changing the world. I LOVE change and so this all pleases me. In the old days, I used to go on BBC and thought this was the way to communicate with the broader world and at one point that was so – but not anymore.

I still like blogs because I also love the written word. I like the way you can carefully construct an opinion piece. That’s why ATW continues. I want technology to help make blogs more interesting and more immediate. I want to be able to communicate with you more easily. When I travel the world, I find blogging impossible as the platform is complex and that needs fixed. I am sure some genius will enhance it.
