There was a young lady called Starkey

By Mike Cunningham On October 22nd, 2014 at 9:38 am

It is a strange but telling tale, and although many of my readers may subscribe deeper motives for my highlighting it, it is pefectly relevant to Britain today.

You live in Rotherham, you want to call a reliable taxi company to order a taxi to take you, well, anywhere; and if you are especially nervous, or wish to avoid any possibility of associating with characters of, shall we say a less than preposessing character; you always demand a ‘local’ driver.

When asked for comment, a council official stated, probably through clenched teeth from sheer frustration, ” However, this appears to be a decision made by the company and there is currently nothing in the conditions of their license which state that they cannot operate such a policy, just as some firms choose to offer customers only female drivers.”

The reason for my posting is, quite simply this: this is where we are today; mainly because of the Social Engineering policies of the bloody Labour Government through the Blair years; and why a national newspaper runs a story where people ask to be provided with White drivers because they are deemed more trustworthy than their Pakistani Muslim colleagues.

I do so wonder why!

 

The Fat Man Cometh…

By The Troll On October 22nd, 2014 at 12:34 am

chris-christie-eating-gunsNew Jersey’s Lard Ass Governor is going to run for President…. This poster child of Walking Pustulence truly is the perfect example of everything that is wrong in the Republican party. If he actually believes anyone outside the Hellhole of NJ is going to do anything other laugh and be repulsed by him, he is in for a fun rude awakening.

October 21, 2014 New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie launched a preemptive strike Tuesday against some potential Republican rivals for the White House, saying the “experiment” of promoting a lawmaker to president has failed—and arguing that Republicans must nominate a governor in 2016. as long as it’s not him

Christie, chairman of the Republican Governors Association, began his speech to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce a group that should be driven from existence in Washington by lauding his counterparts across the country. Then he turned on a dime, pivoting in apparently premeditated fashion from 2014 to 2016. He urged attendees to support GOP governors this fall—not only to help them win reelection, he said, but to build a roster of credible presidential contenders. which the fat man is not one of

“To have any chance of electing a Republican president, there’s a bunch of things we need to do. But the first is to have a good bench of Republican candidates,” Christie said. “And I am convinced that the next president of the United States is going to be a governor—and needs to be.” Governors usually handle the job well, but the first thing is  not what you sugest, the first thing is to run fools like you right off the stage

Christie continued: “We have had an experiment of a legislator who has never run anything getting on-the-job training in the White House. It has not been pretty. And so we need to have a big and broad bench of good, experienced Republican governors to select from in 2016.” there are 3, and you aren’t on the list Chris

The remarks may well represent Christie’s most forceful intra-party offensive to date, a preemptive and unprompted attack against unnamed “legislators”—including Sens. Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz—who almost certainly will be competing with him in 2016. all of which he is not worthy of riding in the same parade with, even nutcase jr

KERRY HARTS NORTHERN IRELAND

By Pete Moore On October 21st, 2014 at 7:40 pm

WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department has tapped former Democratic presidential candidate Gary Hart to be its newest envoy to Northern Ireland.

How nice. And to reciprocate, I’d suggest the Foreign Office make Michael Heseltine its envoy to Detroit, Chicago and Ferguson, MO.

STUDENTS: TRANSGENDER MAN/WOMAN CAN’T BE DIVERSITY OFFICER, BECAUSE HE/SHE’S A MAN NOW, OR SOMETHING

By Pete Moore On October 21st, 2014 at 2:05 pm

You can be anything you want to be in America, except a class diversity officer if you claim to be male, even if you’re female. Confused? I had to read this twice before the penny dropped, but then I’m not insane.

A student who was born female felt perfectly comfortable identifying as a man at Wellesley College — until people said he shouldn’t be class diversity officer because he is now a white male.

Timothy Boatwright was born a girl, and checked off the “female” box when applying to the Massachusetts all-women’s school, according to an article in the New York Times. But when he got there, he introduced himself as a “masculine-of-center genderqueer” person named “Timothy” (the name he picked for himself) and asked them to use male pronouns when referring to him.

And, by all accounts, Boatwright felt welcome on campus — until the day he announced that he wanted to run for the school’s office of multicultural affairs coordinator, whose job is to promote a “culture of diversity” on campus.

But some students thought that allowing Boatwright to have the position would just perpetuate patriarchy. They were so opposed, in fact, that when the other three candidates (all women of color) dropped out, they started an anonymous Facebook campaign encouraging people not to vote at all to keep him from winning the position.

“I thought he’d do a perfectly fine job, but it just felt inappropriate to have a white man there,” the student behind the so-called “Campaign to Abstain” said.

“It’s not just about that position either,” the student added. “Having men in elected leadership positions undermines the idea of this being a place where women are the leaders.”

Boatwright told the Times that his high-school friends knew he was transgender, but he identified himself as female on the application to Wellesley because he didn’t want his mom to know. Of course, Wellesley is also a female school, and “it seemed awkward to write an application essay for a women’s college on why you were not a woman,” he said.

I see that Wellesley College is ranked one of America’s better colleges, which is quite remarkable as it’s clearly full of mental women. Maybe this is how Western Civilisation will die: not with a bang but a row about the diversity status of “masculine-of-center genderqueer” types. Nope, I’ve no idea what that means either.

And thinking about it, maybe Western Civilisation deserves to die if it incubates off the scale nuttyness like this.

2014 World Series – Go Royals!!

By Phantom On October 21st, 2014 at 2:02 pm

Oakland Athletics v Kansas City Royals

The World Series begins tonight in Kansas City, Missouri.

That wasn’t supposed to happen. The NY Yankees, Boston Red Sox and California Angels have all the money. But the Yankees have spent their money unwisely, and the other two fat cat teams fell short. The Kansas City Royals, the team that has not been in the playoffs for 29 years, the team with the 19th highest payroll in MLB, is in the Series, while the fat cats sit home and watch it on TV.

Their opponent is the National League’s San Francisco Giants, one of baseball’s old teams. The Giants were based in New York until the end of the 1957 season, when, along with the Brooklyn Dodgers, they moved to the sunny shores of California. Most New Yorkers renounced their old teams when they moved, but not all. I’ve met old timers who never stopped rooting for the Dodgers. A friend at work is a SF Giants fan, because his dad was a NY Giants fan. Sports is not logical.

So before they throw out the first ball at the House that Balboni Built, all here must pick a side. I, along with the blessed Korean superfan Lee SungWoo as talisman will go with the Royals.

But who are you rooting for?

Libiamo!

By Mike Cunningham On October 21st, 2014 at 11:29 am

What I cannot figure is what a Muslim woman, veiled or not, is doing sitting in an audience watching and listening to an Opera whose story-line is that of a young man’s infatuation for a prostitute, that same prostitute’s high-living, the intrusion of the lover’s father into the affair; and the acceptance by the prostitute of the father’s heartfelt plea that she breaks with the young man, dying though she may be, and head off back to the sinful life of Paris, and away from the young man’s cash!

I agree that the draw is the superb music, and the wonderul singing, but surely a good Muslim woman should shun these terrible signs of depraved Western life, and get back to her kitchen, and her fifteen jihadi-in-training children; and once more be totally subservient to her husband; while he gets to do exactly what he wishes!

NYT: Ukraine Used Cluster Bombs, Evidence Indicates

Things must be getting in bad in Donetsk if even the NYT has noticed the crimes of the Kiev regime. Well they’ve long been bad and they still are in truth. Civilians are still being targeted and murdered despite a supposed ceasefire.  Maybe it was Kiev shelling an international press conference, while the cameras were rolling, which woke up the NYT. Who knows, but at least one major Western court stenographer has broken the omerta and is reporting what Kiev is doing. Reports the NYT:

The Ukrainian Army appears to have fired cluster munitions on several occasions into the heart of Donetsk, unleashing a weapon banned in much of the world into a rebel-held city with a peacetime population of more than one million, according to physical evidence and interviews with witnesses and victims.

Sites where rockets fell in the city on Oct. 2 and Oct. 5 showed clear signs that cluster munitions had been fired from the direction of army-held territory, where misfired artillery rockets still containing cluster bomblets were found by villagers in farm fields.

The two attacks wounded at least six people and killed a Swiss employee of the International Red Cross based in Donetsk.

Gosh, just wait till Washington hears about this. No doubt the criminal Poroshenko regime will rue the day it blasted civilians with cluster bombs. Or maybe not –

Oscar Pistorius was on top form during his trial, crying, wailing and vomiting into a bucket throughout. It was all worth it in the end though: he’s got away with a 5-year stretch for the killing of his girlfriend, meaning he might be home in less than a year.

Adams admitted the IRA’s kangaroo courts for sex offenders meant they were ‘ill-equipped’ to deal with the issue.

He wrote on his blog: ‘This included very sensitive areas such as responding to demands to take action against rapists and child abusers. The IRA on occasion shot alleged sex offenders or expelled them,’ he said.

‘While this may have been expedient at the time it was not appropriate.

‘Victims were left without the necessary social service support and abusers without supervision. It ultimately failed victims and the community alike. That is a matter of profound regret for me, and many other republicans’.

Show me your friends, and I’ll tell you who you are!

 

REMEMBER LIBYA?

By Pete Moore On October 20th, 2014 at 4:12 pm

Politicians really are scum. Three years ago Cameron hailed Gadaffi’s downfall and looked ahead to a brighter future –

Britain could not stand by as Qadhafi slaughtered his people. Nor could we allow a failed pariah state festering on Europe’s southern border, with the potential to threaten our own security [...]

The task of the international community now is to support them as they build that future. That means helping to finish the job – ensuring security, helping to address the immediate humanitarian needs and supporting the Libyan people as they lead the longer-term process of reconstruction and political transition.

Today the Foreign Office gives its verdict, via the medium of travel advice –

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to Libya due to the ongoing fighting and greater instability throughout the country. British nationals in Libya are strongly urged to leave immediately by commercial means.

“By commercial means”, because there’s no consular facility anywhere in the country. It’s that bad. We came, we saw, we intervened, unleashed Hell and forgot about it. We forgot about it because Libya’s too dangerous for Western reporters. It’s even too dangerous for the Libyan government, which occupies a ship in Tripoli harbour. Dry land is just too bloody and chaotic.

No wonder Cameron, Obama and the rest of the gang don’t talk about Libya any more.
