A popular meme is to contrast the European attitude to accepting Muslim refugees and other migrants because they are like the Jews so horribly let down in the 1930s. The habit of otherwise liberal westerners to equate Jews and Muslims and essentially challenge people not to be the made up Islamaphobia label. Continue reading “No Comparison”
My question to all the economists and Govts last 30 years if you claim liberalism, globalisation, EU have benefited us why can’t we afford health, education, pensions, benefits, weekly garbage collection, social care etc. now? Continue reading “Don’t Vote Fascist: Vote Poverty”
As someone whose views can be interpreted as to the left or right of the spectrum depending on the issue I do find the use of the word extremist funny. After all on the left most people called extremists would be centrists to some of my friends. Also since when to anyone but a Septic did universal education, water and health care become extreme anyway? Continue reading “The Extreme Middle”
Amber Rudd Home Secretary ended the scheme to import Child refugees. Her reasoning something about encouraging people to send lone children – resets bullshit detector. And it’s a drop in the ocean and with 100s of millions to be displaced by Climate Change a drop in the universe really. Nonetheless a signal to the bigots who often rely on immigrants far more than more tolerant generations that she hates anyone foreign even children too. Even if it is largely irrelevant for a country of over 60 Million people to take 30,000 never mind 3,000. Continue reading “Self Serving Arseholes”
I read this in Haaretz on why Israel was turning to fruitcakery:-
And left-wing voters have lost interest in the character of their country in recent years. After all, it’s not very liberal to tie yourself in knots in order to shape a society in accordance with your own values. Their secularism has been privatized. They have moved onto dealing with “nano” problems – questions of lifestyle like alternative weddings, circumcision (yes or no), Reform prayer at the Western Wall and girls getting called up to read publicly from the Torah.

This. As true of a ‘left’ celebrating difference and stroking its virtue by not just pointing out racism, sexism etc but celebrating itself as superior because it uses the right pronouns and sentences people to penury for uttering a word out of place in the public sphere. For enforcing anodyne comedy on TV! Continue reading “Nano Problems”
The poor don’t like to be bullied amazing. From the perspective of the poor are they wrong? Corbyn visits Calais where 10000 non constituents ‘choose’ to live, whatever their reasons to get to Northern France is a choice. Khan holds a celebrating our differences inauguration and thinks that makes him a great guy. Labour falls over itself to support unequivocally the misogynistic and homophobic ideas of the the Koran yet makes the same tabloid demands on the poor. Continue reading “Progressives Hate The Poor?”
I note that establishments are talking about banning fake news so no British newspaper would be allowed? They [central banks] also want to ban cash. People miss that none of this will improve economic performance, quite the opposite with cash ban, but you only need 25% to control most democracies. UK TV is already essentially under Govt control by Offcom – stations are not allowed to say when they are censored either. You will also note as per snoopers charter this as much as one can tell with Labour is supported by both main parties.
Left squabbling over who is racist and pronouns is rather funny in this context. In the sense of funny but not funny a bit like Mr Corbyn and McDonnell really.
The point is that with money now ‘printed’ for our rulers and media under control in UK they don’t need a thriving economy just control. Indeed Putin would seem the ideal for the West’s rulers?
