The Night Duty Boy-First-Class Type Writer, commanding his Chimpanzee Shift, might put some music up as it’s Saturday: we shall just have to see.
Hat tip The Landed Underclass. That blog just gets better and better, and he will outlive us in The Line.
Some people are more equal than others now.
The Policeman concerned has found a clever and opaque way of saying he’s not the friend of all people: just those of them that happen to be powerful today.
On totally unrelated matters, readers might like this book.
The Landed Underclass notes the concatenation of events and incidents related to Robert Peston, aged 4, “described” as “a journalist”, and the collapse both of Northern Rock and the pants-ripping of the Royal Bank of Scotland.
Clearly, there are openings for stooges under this government. I would like a job as one, then I will be rich and famous. theywill of course allow me to keep my (authorised by them) pension, as soon as my usefulness has ended.
UPDATE2:- Little Man What Now? has also republished it. What this exercise shows is the utter futility of an Enemy Governimg Class trying to supress stuff it does not approve of, until its Terror-Police have effectively removed the publication-tools from us all. They clearly know nothing whatever about the history of England in the 1620s-to-1640s, as the new and revolutionarry technique of “imprinting” was at last getting going on a large scale, and at a difficult time for the battling of ideas which was then going on.
UPDATE:- THE TIMES took this piece down off its site some hours ago, to the original link to the Times OUT OF landed Underclass is broken. ( ARRSE have the full text.) The Cato Institute also quotes some of it. Good job I virally-pasted the whole thing….
UPDATE:- Here in full is the big and angry discussion thread about this piece on the Army Rumour Service at http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/t=117552/postdays=0/postorder=asc/start=20.html
Hat tip to the Landed Underclass for exposing the true significance of this prescient piece of writing:-
…..and shows that they must have been waiting, pooing their pants in fright, to get rumbled by someone. God, how slow can bloggers be sometimes? (But _IF_ you go here, you will see that the Libertarian Alliance’s duty-Chimpanzee-Type-Writing-Shift for 2004 (in the unheated Nissen-hut, not the other one) had indeed spotted ASH already!) (And if you go here, we have a raft of ancient writings about fake-charity and its iniquities, or even real charity, and its role in a liberal civilisation.)
The Landed Underclass notes today that Charity Finance (whatever that is for) has logged the existence of fakecharities.org, a site set up by the estimable Devil, to expose and monitor the use of public funds directly by “charities”.
The “charities” named in fakecharities.org are almost entirely engaged in fake lobbying: lobbying, it may be added, for mainly liberty-restricting ends such as more persecution of smokers, alcohol-likers, drivers, people who enjoy tasty food such as burgers and chips, other kinds of poor people, and suchlike.
Libertarians of all kinds will know that under liberal or what we call “free” societies, history shows the greatest rate of expansion of private charity. This is contrasted with the situation of charities under a Big State, which forcibly confiscates so much of people’s resources that charities actually suffer and attenuate. The only way they can survive is to actually abdicate their caring role in favour of the Big State tkaing it over, and than “caring” on behalf of “the people”. Naturally, the “charities” which then do best out of the pig-trough are those with the most Statist ends themselves. Small charities which actually do charity may survive in odd niches and localities, such as this one: but those which don’t trough-pig mega with the sharpest elbows will eventually go down.
Of course, this is what a Big State wants.
Or you could have a charity like this one, which not only has been doing something supremely useful for many decades, but takes no money from Big States.
This madman plans to fire trillions of mirrors into space, to “stop global warming. I really do begin to believe that some of these mountebanks are starting to believe their own witchcraft.
Read the whole thing: it’s eitherw ritten by an imaginative but scientifically-illiterate hobbledy-hoy, or else by some very evil and wicked men.
People who haven’t built a gun before ought not to be allowed anywhere near where extra-powerful ones are to be constructed.
Legiron says don’t riot. Please. Not until there’s been a general election to wipe out ZanuLieBorg.
A bit of a maverick one, to be sure, consorting for so long with fascist lefty Nazi scumbags in ZaluLieBorg – but a liberal all the same.
Hat tip Guido Fawkes. Let me guess: he’s the one site that nobody _ever_ confesses to reading…..
The new Bentley looks suitably impressive and expensive. But hardly different from any other executive-express. It also can run on “E85″, available at Morrisons, no less! I doubt that buyers of this car shop there much… This stuff is an 85% mixture of bioethanol with petrol. So when using that fuel instead of nice, famine-free fossil fuels, you can be sure you’ve just starved a few more Africans.
The trouble with big modern car firms like VW (yes it owns Bentley I think, so really this is a re-bodied Phaeton or Bugatti Veyron but who cares?) is that they feel bound to emply phalanxes of PR “executives” in various “communications” departments. This makes them vulnerable to assaults by greenazis, with whom the PR chappies and chappesses went to “uni” probably, and may well have shagged each other while students.
If they didn’t bother to employ these useless wastes-of-rations, in “communications”, then they’d be…
(a) functionally deaf to media-assaults about “non-renewable fuels”, and about “polluting the environment” by not using “bio fuels”
(b) able to afford more engineers and guys at draftsmen’s tables, producing even nicer cars,
(c) not make all their cars look like one another, by passing the desings through fascist-filtering wind-tunnel-software,
(d) able to bring the crypto-terrorist inclinations of the greens out in the open: frustrated as the greens would become, they would turn to terrorism and destruction of car plants, and THEN we will see where “governments” stand. Placate the greenazis or the labour unions?
Wish things like this would be taught now.
I wonder what radio set they used? I will have to find out.
Humans are human after all.
From Mr Eugenides.
I was also amused by what these guys in Greece said….
The group, Sect of Revolutionaries, first appeared earlier this month when it opened fire with a submachine gun on an Athens police station, spraying the precinct with bullets but injuring nobody. [...] On Tuesday, the group carried out a similar attack in the parking lot of the private Alter television station, again causing no injuries.
In a statement published by the daily Ta Nea, the group says its latest attack was a message to journalists that “the time that you were ‘untouchable’ is over.”
“They manipulate our minds daily so that we fill the reserves of our disciplined time with values and functions that feed the system,” the group says, adding: “Let the slugs of media journalism know that apart from the mucus they leave behind them… soon they will also leave blood.”
“Mister journalists, this time we came to your door, but next time you will find us in your homes,” it said.
The assaults culminated on Wednesday with an attempt to detonate a car bomb outside the headquarters of Citibank in Athens. The 60 kilogram device, assembled with ammonium nitrate fuel oil – the explosive used in the Oklahoma City bombing – could have destroyed the four-storey building and killed hundreds.
“From now on, the life of every cop is worth as much as a bullet, while their bodies are the ideal target practice,” the Sect of Revolutionaries declared in its maiden proclamation. “They, like the doughnuts that they eat, are no good without a hole in the middle.”
They may be bloodthirsty lefty lunatics, but those boys can write…(aka Mr Eugenides.)
“Personal Privacy” will have to be sacrificed in order to fight “terrorism” and suchlike.
We already knew that, but now they’re saying it out loud. And the LPUK has a much better-argued and fuller rendition (ha ha ha ha ha! Rendition! is this another word for the lefties to lynch or have they merely invented it to sound like clever-clogs?) of the matter.
A couple of hours ago, we posted this stuff here, ripping as it does the public-trousers (if you can call them that) off the bugger Kim Jong-Il. He shot a woman on the Wireless Tele Vision. Hillary Clinton can’t want that, even though Monica Lewinski was also a woman.
Now, we learn that “North” Korea can point a missile at the continental USA. Personally I doubt that, but we have to be sure either way. It also means that he can point it at China, India, Japan, Russia, Pakistan (he won’t, it’s where he probably got it from at a Bootle-type-boot-fair) Persia, Arabia, Australia and New Zealand (better watch out just in case) Indonesia (he won’t) and so on.
Israel….NOW you’re talking! Everybody of course hates the Jews because they are so clever and thus they have to be killed in culls all the time, or they’ll rumble you and cause you to lose your tenured-university-job-teaching-Gramsco-Marxianism-to-those-who-have-been-Big-Brothered. He’ll get away with that one.
He can’t quite reach South Africa, but it’s gone Nazi so he will leave it.
…..in my entire life, and I have lived past a quite a few now. (Interior Ministers are now always younger than I am.)
Interesting pic on An Englishman’s Castle. Don’t know what you make of it, nor do I, but it says some things that she wants you to know. Here’s the thing:-
It is not suitable to shoot women. Only communists, Gramsco-Marxians and the Prussian general Staff (as a tactic to be used in the terrorising into passivity of occupied regions) sanctioned it. Stalin learned it, rather quickly.
Sorry. It’s just that our strategic-focus-video-incorporation-outreach-Chimpanzee-Typewriter-Group-deputy-chief-assistant-activities-co-ordinator, er, pointed out that, we had not thrown rotting cabbages at Kim Jong-Il for some time, and it was high time we did. At least 9% of the duty-Chimps on this shift found themselves involuntarily typing about him, even without pre-briefing.
Just so he knows we have not forgotten him, and all his works.
That’s much, much better: that’s the real thing. There’s quite enough energy in the Universe for trains to be just like that all the time. Much more intresting.
