ATW FRIDAY NIGHT JUKEBOX

By Pete Moore On July 5th, 2019 at 7:36 pm

Because Friday night is Music Night

Another week done at thee coalface of capitalism, the British economy propped up for a little longer. But the good news is trucker’s tan is coming on a treat. Everything below the knees and elbows would make a Greek god proud.

I see that Sky Sports will broadcast the Cricket World Cup Final free-to-air if England get that far. Just make the plans now, Sky. It’s coming home.

Have yourselves a good weekend whatever you’re up to. As always, feel free to share your top sounds down below –

THERE’S A SOLUTION TO THIS

By Pete Moore On July 5th, 2019 at 7:23 pm

The public have lost confidence in the police and fear that Britain has descended into lawlessness because of knife and drug crime, five former heads of Scotland Yard warn today.

They finally looked up from the doughnut bin and saw what’s going on. But then they revert to type. Met Commissioners are political animals, and if there’s one thing the police have always been goo at it’s lobbying for yet more money. So they blame the politicians even though, by historical standards, police numbers remain high.

So here’s an idea; introduce coppers to shoe leather and get them using it. Get off Twitter Patrol and start patrolling the streets on foot. Get out of the cars, helicopters and diversity awareness classrooms and simply be a visible presence. There are more than enough coppers to do that, and many of them need the fresh air and exercise.

That alone will begin to cut crime.

HIGH COURT: BREXIT BUS WAS FINE

By Pete Moore On July 4th, 2019 at 6:58 pm

And like that, Remoaners will forget about buses.

A sore loser took Boris Johnson to court for that £350 million a week figure on the side of the Vote Leave bus. The High Court today held that the action was political, vexatious, and that the £350 million plastered on the side of it was absolutely fine.

Like all Remoaner arguments, it’s case dismissed.

IT WAS AN ADVISORY WAR OF INDEPENDENCE

By Pete Moore On July 4th, 2019 at 6:32 pm

It’s that day when Americans become insufferable and full of it. Just like every other day then. I kid, I kid.

But we have to be honest about what they’re celebrating over there, because I don’t see much to be proud about. The colonists were happy to be part of the greatest union. They came and went freely, trading in London, owning land in the Americas, and all the while seeing more colonists boosting the economy.

But they had their heads turned. Lies about tea and taxes were put about. Then they were beguiled with populist nonsense about liberty and independence. Not all of them, of course. Just a minority. Most colonists were happy with their fortunate position. But the rabble-rousers joined with the worst of people, the uneducated and the bigoted. They then sought foreign interference from the French and it all kicked off. The outcome was a catastrophic no-deal, crash-out USexit.

And how did that work out for them?

Exactly.

(NB: It was the British Civil War of North America)

The Way It’s Done…….

By Patrick Van Roy On July 4th, 2019 at 12:03 am

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

UNROLL PLEASE

I actually agree with Marcher. Mayor Khan’t is hopeless and hapless, but the situation is beyond any Mayor or Met Commissioner. It’s beyond them because London has been filled with people who think that stabbing someone is a normal form of dispute resolution. And what’s fueling the disputes, ultimately, are nice people who like a crafty line with their nice friends after the weekend dinner party. Nice people who ignore that they are the demand who fuels the stabbings. Nice people who ignore that their crafty line comes with vast environmental damage too.
