YOU HAVE to have been in the UK to fully appreciate the sheer intensity of the campaign of fear that was waged upon us. Rammed in our faces, day after day, were the impending terrors of Brexit if we did not bow to our betters and do as we were told.
Then Chancellor George Osborne was a chief culprit. “A year long recession” he constantly warned us, if we vote to leave the EU. He would have to implement “an immediate, emergency budget” to battle against our folly. “Interest rates will rise” he constantly warned us. Day after day after day, rammed in our faces. Oh yeah?
There was no emergency budget, that was obviously a high lie, now confirmed. And yesterday the Bank of England reduced interest rates even further. Such are the terrors which await us, the Bank’s latest forecast is for growth of 2% for 2016, dropping to 0.8% in 2017 and rising again to 1.8% in 2018.
We won our battle, we didn’t “listen to the experts” as we were told to do, and we have been proven stone cold right. The question is, if these numbers had been known prior to Independence Day, how much larger would the winning margin have been? Remain lies almost stole it from us.
Bottom line: it can be good to ignore the experts.

I got an email to remind me of an appointment I have with the School of Dentistry next week. I always keep my appointments but I noticed the message went on to say that missed appointments cost “the NHS £150 each”. OK, I can understand that statistic and if people choose not to turn up for a scheduled appointment without telling the NHS, I would invoice them for the wasted time and effort involved. But what about this…?
New figures reveal the devastating impact that Northern Ireland’s under-staffed health system is having on frontline patient care. In the last year, hospitals put off more than 150,000 outpatient appointments – around one in 10.
Almost 60,000 were postponed because doctors and nurses were unavailable. Thousands of others were lost due to administrative blunders within the system. In many cases, appointments will have been cancelled at just a few minutes’ notice.
Can patients denied appointments invoice the £150 I mentioned earlier for a failure to provide the service quoted? Or does it work only one way?
The other point that needs dealt with is the assertion in the article that the NHS is “under staffed”. How can this be when it has NEVER employed more staff? There is MORE money than ever be spend on this monolith and it continues to deliver a hopeless service for far too many people.

I see that London’s Heathrow Airport has been brought to a standstill this morning as access to it has been denied due to Black Lives Matters thugs blocking the main road in.
Holidaymakers heading to Heathrow have been stopped by Black Lives Matter protesters who are blocking off roads to the airport as part of a national day of action. Long tailbacks have built up after the protesters spread banners across arterial routes and started lying in the road at the entrance to the hub. It is believed the group are taking part in a national day of action as part of #BlackAugust, a campaign to raise awareness of racism.
There are few bigger racists than those behind this Cop Killing advocacy grievance mongering collective. The idea that holidaymakers and business people should be denied access to this airport because this bunch of narcissistic clowns want to “raise awareness of racism” is ridiculous. The Police should sweep them off the streets and assert the rule of law. All Lives Matter and we should not allow this hate driven group any special privileges.

Further to Troll’s post, the UK media has effectively sanitised the knife rampage by a Somalian immigrant which has resulted in the death of a 64yr old American and injuries to several other people. The MET police were telling the media that this was NOT a “terrorist” incident but rather they were pursuing “mental illness” as the driver of the attack. This statement was put out very quickly begging the obvious question how could the Met Police make a definitive psychiatric assessment with such alacrity. Then, the media ran with the line that the culprit was “A NORWEGIAN ….of somali origin”. NOW we know he’s been living in the UK for more than a decade (Open borders, don’tcha just love them?) and guess what….yes, he was BULLIED at school. So, in a way, he is a victim.
Got that? This is increasingly the media modus operandi when Jihad strikes.
- Deny it is Jihad.
- Deny the culprit is Muslim
- Suggest “mental illness” and “bullying” along with repressed homosexual feelings and lack of employment prospects
- Make the culprits the real victims.
We’ve seen this in Florida, in Germany, in France and now in the UK. The Political class have concluded that you fight radical Islam by pretending it isn’t happening. Meanwhile, the body count grows.

Police sources confirmed the attacker hailed from Norway and is of Somali descent.
After speaking to his family, searching his home and working with Mi5 and Mi6, police sources added that he has shown no signs of radicalisation.
The dead woman was confirmed as an American tourist while the injured were British, Australian, Israeli and American.
She died at the scene while being cradled by a group of Spanish tourists who rushed to her aid late last night.
The victim, in her 60s, was knifed in the back while five others were injured during the horrific attack.
As she lay dying in the arms of her desperate rescuers, she warned: “He’s still here, he’s still here.”
Witnesses described victims “screaming and covered in blood” following the rampage in which the woman was brutally knifed around 10.30pm last night.
Other terrified onlookers described the “disturbed” knifeman chasing pedestrians and “lunging for anyone he could see” as police confirmed mental health was a likely factor.
A 19-year-old man was arrested at the scene after being tasered by police in Russell Square as officers yelled: “Put it down.”
The Norwegian foreign office confirmed the suspect emigrated to the UK from the Scandinavian country in 2002 when he was five.
The horrific incident happened just yards from where one of the 7/7 terror attack bombs detonated in 2005.
London mayor Sadiq Khan urged people to remain “calm and vigilant”.
But don’t worry he came to Britain at the age of 5. He’s not radicalized, just CRAZY.

Slowly but surely, the UK authorities are bending to accept the will of the occupying power.
“A taxpayer-funded community swimming pool has sparked outrage by hosting men and women-only sessions for alleged ‘cultural reasons’. The gender-segregated time slots came into place on July 29 and give men exclusive access to the larger 160ft, eight-lane competition pool at the Inspire Sports Village.
During these periods, women will be relegated to the smaller 65ft community pool at the sports facility in Stopsley, Luton. One outraged female swimmer, who did not wish to be named, said: ‘The Friday night session for everyone is now closed because of the listed men-only sessions.’ ‘I have asked a team leader about it – as there are no managers at the weekend – and he said it was a “cultural thing”. ‘Why has one section of the community in Luton been allowed to dominate and take over the best pool in the borough?”
The answer is obvious. If you don’t allow “one section of the community” to dominate there will be “consequences”.

No, not a typo.
It was only a matter of time before the German women who held signs saying “refugees welcome” got their “welcoming.”
In these reports from German TV, multiple socialist, left-wing women tell of their being raped by so-called “refugees.” Rather than report their crimes, they felt compelled to cover them up and lie and claim native Germans were involved too. Their concern to this day is not that they’ve imported an actual rape culture, but that the rapists not tarnish the image of the rest of the wonderful refugees.
Weapons grade stupidity. Germany is in serious trouble now. We have Merkel insisting that importing an invading muslim army is the responsible thing to do, and now leftist women covering up their rapes.

Mea Culpa. I misjudged the French State. It has finally decided to crack down. Oh Hang on. Not in Les Banlieu. No – on Priests.
French riot police were seen brutally dragging a priest in ceremonial dress out a of a Parisian church by one arm in images that have infuriated Catholics in France. Jean-Francois Billot was among twenty people protesting over the demolition of the 100-year-old St Rita, but police arrived with batons and helmets to forcibly remove the congregation yesterday.
Riot Police, noticeably absent from the now Islamified parts of La Belle France show their muscle with this pesky Priest. I am sure this image will warm the hearts of watching Imams. Catholicism in France – not Islam – is the enemy. God help them.

THIS has been dragged from the depths. Who is (A)?
Free trade and an open-door policy would bring prosperity, (A) told a meeting of 35 Australian business leaders in Melbourne yesterday.
“He discussed the immigration issue in Australia and he took a position on it,” said Tom Hogan, president of Vignette Corporation, host of the exclusive forum.
“(A) believes the world will be a better place if all borders are eliminated – from a trade perspective, from the viewpoint of economic development and in welcoming (the free movement of) people from other cultures and countries,” Mr Hogan said.
(A) showed an understanding of the political problems Australia faced, but said he supported the ultimate wisdom of a borderless world for people and for trade.
The first correct answer gets a signed photo of Donald Trump. (Printed from the web and signed by me.)
