UEFA DOES IT AGAIN

By Pete Moore On May 6th, 2021 at 7:30 pm

The final of the Champions League, Europe’s premier club competition, is due to be held in Istanbul. Two English clubs, Manchester City and Chelsea, will contest the final. No-one wants to leave England, where the virus is well suppressed, to travel to Turkey, which currently has the highest rates of infection in Europe and which is under a hard lockdown.

A neutral venue can be chosen in England, no problem. Some fans can be allowed in. Sports events have begun to allow fans in here. Solutions are easy and at hand. What says you, UEFA (European football’s governing body)?

Manchester City and Chelsea have had it made clear by UEFA that the venue of the Champions League final will not be changed.

Well done to UEFA’s pinheads. Bravo.

 

“THE CHURCH WARDEN HAS OVERSLEPT”

Meaning in Dibley –

Some may scoff, but this is British ingenuity at its finest. Make do and mend, a roll of tape and a bit of “that’ll do Dave, close enough” is how we built the world.

You don’t need fancy schmancy machines to record a vote.

And I agree

Cost and Consequences

By Patrick Van Roy On May 6th, 2021 at 1:35 pm

“Would you pay $102,000 to live an extra 7.5 hours?” the researchers ask. “What 18-year-old values his time at $13,600 an hour?” However, they find that for the elderly the benefits of mitigation efforts do exceed the costs: “The benefits of protection, measured in life expectancy, are 210 times as high for the older person.”

“Had policy makers understood the enemy, they would have adopted different protocols for young and old,” Hooper and Henderson conclude. “Politicians would have practiced focused protection, narrowing their efforts to the most vulnerable 11% of the population and freeing the remaining 89% of Americans from wasteful burdens.”

A sad state of affairs

Of course it has. The government in shattered, staggering, dhimmi Britain is paralyzed with fear of its growing and restive Muslim communities, and is increasingly ready to throw Britain’s cherished principles away and embrace Sharia blasphemy laws in exchange for spurious promises of peace and security. And those who might have stood up against this have long ago been demonized, marginalized and silenced by the political elites and the establishment media. All that are left are trimmers, opportunists, self-seekers, and worse. Britain is finished.

DENMARK IS SUCH AN INSPIRATION

The first European country to revoke asylum for Syrians, Denmark is pushing ahead with plans to reach its zero-asylum-seekers target.

“We need to be more Nordic” is a commie refrain when they spot a tax which is higher in Scandinavia than here. So I’ll say it for them: “We need to be more Nordic”, eh chums?

POLITICIANS REALLY HATE THE POOR

“Minimum unit pricing of alcohol will not affect restaurants or pubs and will apply to off-licences and supermarkets only.

It will target cheap, high-alcohol products — for example, own brand drinks sold by retailers.”

 – Fine Gael

Every politician who claims that minimum prices will cut demand for a product will also claim that minimum prices for labour will not cut demand for that product.

Systemic Racism

Restaurants and venues owned by white men will be last in line for federal relief under President Joe Biden’s “Restaurants Revitalization Fund” (RRF), prioritizing funds for women and minority groups first.

As part of Biden’s American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, the Small Business Administration (SBA) is opening the application process by which owners of restaurant, bars, and other venues can apply for federal relief to help make up for the loss of revenue as a result of economic lockdowns spurred by the Chinese coronavirus crisis.

The plan allows business owners to apply for relief of up to $10 million per business and no more than $5 million per physical location. Business owners do not have to repay the funds so long as the money is spent by March 2023.

The relief, though, is being prioritized based on race, gender, and whether or not business owners are considered “socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.” White men, for example, who are not Veterans of the United States Armed Forces, are not eligible for “priority period” processing and funding.

SEND IN THE ARCHERS

The French really are begging for another slap. They’ve whined for months that their fisherman are being denied access to our British waters. Hey, we have the best fish. Deal with it, Jean. Now their government is looking to take it out on the good people of Jersey.

The French government could cut off the electricity supply to Jersey in an escalating row over post-Brexit fishing rights, a French minister has suggested.

Responding to questions in the national assembly, Annick Girardin, the minister for maritime affairs, said she was “revolted” by the UK government’s behaviour over its waters and France was ready to retaliate.

The British crown dependency of Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands, relies on “the transmission of electricity by underwater cable”, Girardin said as she was questioned by assembly members, raising the supply as a point of leverage.

“I would regret it if we were to get there,” the minister said, but “we will do so if we have to.”

Imagine wanting to be in political and economic union with these cheating, vaccine blocking beggers. I’d be feeling pretty stupid by now if I’d voted the stay with that shower. The French ambassador needs to be summoned and told that it would regrettable if the RAF were give Paris the Caen treatment, but we will do so if we have to.
