The ultimate fake charity


David Davis

I give you…..the RSPCA!

Their “operatives” even wear paramilitary uniforms.

Oh dear, a spat with Pakistan, again


David Davis

UPDATE: I forgot to include a link to the report – apologies.

Our Coagulation-PM has got into hot water, it seems, with certain nationalist elements in the Pakistani Intelligence Services.

Apparently this is what Cameron said:-

”But we cannot tolerate in any sense the idea that this country is allowed to look both ways and is able, in any way, to promote the export of terror whether to India, whether to Afghanistan or to anywhere else in the world.”

The problem of interpretation centres on TWO WORDS…”able” and “promote”. If his advisers had said to him to say “unable” to “prevent”, or even “finds it difficult to prevent”, then I don’t think the ISI could have complained – for that would, as we all know, be substantively true.

Perhaps the coagulation is going to founder on the rock of the British Political Enemy-Class, which still owns the Terms Of Discourse, which wants our culture and civilisation dead, which believes what it is saying and thinks we don’t think that, and still, sadly, briefs Cameron’s speechwriters.

Pakistan is a surprisingly large place, like neighbouring Afghanistan, and it is difficult to police much of it, even had its government the strategic will and vision to supress “certain elements”.

“Johnny-Taliban” is clearly getting his gear (even if not his squaddies) from somewhere, and nearby – given his logistics-set-up – is the obvious place. I don’t think the Russians’ writ quite runs as well as it did in those parts in the 1970s/80s, so “north” is probably out: furthermore, ShootinPutin187 knows, to a nicety, how far to push us or not, and this is not something he’d go the the stake over.

France always makes trouble for the Anglosphere on principle, whenever it can. That’s how it is: it’s France’s job and has been for 1,000 years. So I’m prepared to believe that money might be coming from there, if not explosives and IED-technology. But Occam’s Razor does, sadly, point to our old chum “West Pakistan”.

If the ISI geeks want to flounce, let them.

No, it’s too good to be true

The “authorities” have decided that there are too many wheelie bins. What a surprise.

But the strategic problem lies in the mindset that says there ought to be any in the first place. The notion that the State ought to be responsible for rubbish-collection, and (worse!) for its ultimate disposal (how do we know they-Gestapobuggers (who brown-nose Labour people, which is to say – socialists)) is not just going to tip it into the sea….or the WATER SUPPLY…?)

Here is what I said to the Daily Mail, which actually published it within five minutes which is a record:-

The entire contents of your dustbin (remember those?) can be burnt. This is what fire is for.

You just burn it. In your yard. This returns immensely-valuable carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, where it has belonged for the past 4 billion years, rightly, and is used by plants right away, for photosynthesis. The more photosynthesis, the more food for the world, and the more animals and the more life, and the more coal in 300 million years’ time. The place for a gas is in among other gases. Global warming is good. Geddit now?

The rest of it, what we call “ASH”, goes on the garden. It promotes plant growth. That’s what it’s for. You just spread it about and dig it in.

The scary-metal-bits, and molten glass, you give to “The Dustmen”. They take it away. They can recycle it if the GreenGestapo say so, but it’s better to send it to Nigeria. Which is the same destiny anyway.

Stay Here, There’s Something to See…

… but it’s precious little cause for comfort at the moment. PC Simon Harwood will face a disciplinary hearing relating to his fatal attack on the late Ian Tomlinson in April 2009.

The most extreme sanction available to the panel is reportedly dismissal from the Metropolitan police. I can’t help thinking that:

1) If Mr. Tomlinson had struck down PC Harwood in a similar manner (rather than vice versa), he would have faced a judge and jury on a murder/manslaughter charge in rather less than 16 months.

2) PC Harwood would have faced more serious criminal charges more quickly (courtesy of the RSPCA and/or other animal welfare groups) if he’d similarly attacked a defenceless animal instead of a British citizen.

I therefore conclude that:
1) The nature of legal/judicial “business as usual” in the British state is plain to see. G.K. Chesterton’s criticism that the British governing class invariably omits itself from the laws it passes remains at least as true today as it was when Chesterton pointed it out no later than 1909. Nostalgic supporters of the rule of law here in the UK are badly in need of a large pinch of salt.

2) It would be advisable for libertarians to cease and desist from referring to the British populace colloquially as “sheeple”, if only because the lives of animals are now arguably worth more to the British state/media complex than the lives of British citizens.

Still, at least Attorney General Dominic Grieve has said he “understands” why people are upset, even as the Government and the MSM profess bewilderment at some people’s efforts to turn the late Raoul Moat into a folk hero after he shot PC David Rathband in the face.

Those who do not learn from history…


…and you know the rest of that one.

But this looks like it will be worth reading.

Around the coalition in 80 days


Michael Winnng

It has now been about 80 days sicne the coagulation took power if that’s what you could call it. 6th May to 25th July is about that, almost 80 days exactly. Usually yu do this sort of stuff in 100 days, but today’s headline in the DT, that NHS managers are drawing up a list of “services” to cut, just emphasises how this lot are not really any different from the last lot.

Instead of cutting services, why not let the “managers” fire themselves? More money would be saved and you could have MORE hip operations, not less. The sale of their BMWs alone – and rights to their parking spaces – would pay for probably a whole new hospital.

This whole episode just shows that whoever you vote for, the government always gets in. Under this current dispensation at any rate. Something will have to be done soon.

Move Along, There’s Nothing to See…

Five years to the day after the Metropolitan Police shot dead an innocent Brazilian electrician named Jean Charles de Menezes in the wake of the 7/7 and 21/7 terrorist attacks, the CPS has announced that no charges will be laid against the police officer who struck Ian Tomlinson to the ground at the G20 protests in April 2009.

Mr. Tomlinson died shortly thereafter either of a heart attack (per 1 post mortem) or of internal bleeding as a result of injuries sustained (according to 2 subsequent post mortem examinations). The CPS has therefore concluded that a successful prosecution for murder/manslaughter or even ABH is unlikely.

What’s more, the length of time it’s taken the CPS to investigate the matter (16 months) prevents even a charge of common assault being brought. There’s a 6 month time limit on such a charge.

In response to the CPS statement, the Metropolitan police has issued a public statement expressing regret over Mr. Tomlinson’s death and indicating that misconduct proceedings may yet take place.
