Queen Elizabeth-the-Useless failed in the execution of her Coronation Oath. But I expect we will all cry sincerely when she passes on.


David Davis

I am not always precisely in tune with my colleague Sean Gabb, regarding the failings of Elizabeth-the-Useless. Although he is quite correct in stating that she _could have_ blocked Rome, the SEA, Maastricht, Amsterdam, Nice and Lisbon at any time when these were issues. On any one of these – and the earlier the more chance of success – The Queen could have refused to assign her signature to any of this pretentious socialist rubbish, could have forced a General Election, and prevented the Franco-Collectivisto-Gramscian re-Nazification of Europe, saving her own subjects hundreds of billions of Sterling, not to say even trillions, in the process. We might even have got our managed-fisheries back before they were destroyed utterly (ask my father, who worked in the 70s for the MAFF, and who is now dead.). And at least up to Nice, she might also have got away with it. It would have been wise to resist early on.

But she continues to continue to soldier on, probably because she reminds the masses of their favourite great-aunt (I also have one, my aunty Betty who is actually a real aunt for I am rather old now and who even looks and sounds like the Queen a lot, and is only slightly older) or Grandmother.

As the Queen is old, and as she is a woman, and as it is not suitable to impeach or charge women for high treason – at least not “directly” – I would like to cleave to the position that “The Queen has been very, very badly advised, continually, for 61 years, in the matter of her constitutional dealings with the Continue reading

Stop complaining about supermarkets, and start attacking Soviets who stop you helping the “little shops”


David Davis

Michael mentions “little shops” just below, but aside from the taxation-threats lined up by the GramscoFabiaNazi food-rationists against foods, of whatever kind, this caught my eye. Below is comment (just inside the 1,000 character limit) which I’ve posted on The Daily Wail:-

Modern supermarkets are the greatest boons to Mankind. If you didn’t want them, they’d not exist.

Admit it: you know you must, and you _/know in your heart/_ that these places exist because _/you/_ the customers want them to.

You, I, everyone here all know that we couldn’t function, in the post-modern, socialist hell-hole of frenetic slave-labour just to pay basic bills and taxation, that is “Britain, a Young Country” (remember that Tony Bliar gag?) without these convenient, cheap places.

Yes, “little local shops” are lovely. But Councils, which is to say “Soviets”, have ensured that you can’t either drive to them (pedestrianisation) or park near enough to enough of them to buy enough at one trip to make it worthwhile to try.

RIP UP all pedestrianisation schemes. (Wicked pernicious town-wrecking, on purpose by Stalinists.)
SAW OFF all parking meters and block in the holes.
SACK the “wardens” so they can go and serve you your fresh veggies at “little shops” instead.

S.O.S. (Save Our Sausages)


Fred Bloggs.

Now this is just being silly. I mean, that’s just being malicious. I like my sausages, stay away from them, they’re mine I say, they’re MINE!.

Ahem…

Sorry for the outburst, but this is a subject that I feel very strongly about.

The Great Pretender


Fred Bloggs.

“Anti-Social Behavior”; it’s a word you hear alot these days, often when referring to people with racing stripes on their trousers and who are under the delusion that it is always raining. Examples of “Anti-Social Behavior” include; throwing bricks through windows, shoplifting, destruction of property, and all sorts of thing that you hear about in the news regulary.
The thing is, it’s not “Anti-Social Behavior”, it’s crime.
I don’t care how you spin it, it’s still crime. But the gorvernment continues to look at these people and says that “It’s not these peoples fault, it’s societies.” What is society made up of? People.

In my opinion, i think that the government is trying to brag to other countries by saying “Crime is down for the 12th year running”…..But this
so-called “Anti-Social Behavior” is on the rise. I wonder why.
Could it be that crime has been re-labled “Anti-Social Behavior” in an effort to lower the numbers and make it sound nicer? Maybe.
But they say “We are combating “Anti-Social Behavior” with harsh measures, called ASBOs.” Which basically consist of the Police asking the felon to “promise s/he won’t do it again”
Now, is it just me and my cynicism, or is there a minor flaw in that plan? Wherin they just might have had their fingers crossed as they promised, or that, being not very nice, they break their promise (assuming the police bring in anti-finger crossing methods) and commit more crime “Anti-Social Behavior” and starting the cycle all over again.

Look Mr. Brown, stop pretending that all this crime isn’t happening, and do something. And Community Service dosn’t count. Ever.

Food rationing coming soon: it will be called “choice-editing”.

They’re after your children again.

Has nobody among these GramscoFabiaNazi “researchers” considered that children need to be fat in places like Stockton-on-Tees, because it’s effing cold a lot of the time? (So your children can, indeed must, be fat, or they will be uncomfortable.)

And that in wealthy, hot Sussex, way-down south of here, it’s just, well, hot? (So your children can, indeed must, be thin, or they will be uncomfortable.) They have successful vineyards, for f***’s sake.

Anyway, those effete southerners are too close to all those “Haute Couture” designers in strange places like London and Paris who seem to think all humans ought to be 3-meter-high-skeletal boys with a scowl, so they probably get to like thin children…

And of course, picking and treading the Sussex grapes, for the Political-Enemy-Superclass to crow about in venezuela and Cuba, in the traditional pre-capitalist-barbarian grape-treading-manner, gets you fit and thin.

“Is farming the root of all evil?” – the buggers are really having a go at us now…

Claims ‘R’ Us

MP’s strangest claims

Big Mac University


David Davis

I suppose that libertarians would probably agree that there ought to be lots of Universities, since these are theoretically a _Good Thing_ (provided that they function according to the principles of fthe Free Market, and do what they are supposed to do, which is turn out Liberally-Educated human beings. Therefore the recent fungal morphing into “universities” in Britain, of numerous otherwise (I presume?) reasonably competent technical and remedial institutions, so as to meet some socialist “planning target for young people entering further education”, is to be criticised. All it’s done is turn out a whole class of the robbed, the indebted and the duped, fit for nothing except occupation of state sinecures in the gigantic unemployment-relief system known as the “Public Sector”.

It says over at The Landed Underclass that MacDonald’s, the Burger Chain that All Right-Thinking-People Love to Hate, is going to offer degrees, via itself, for the benefit of its staff. I think this a grand idea, and wonder why other outfits are not already filling the clear gap left by the uselessness of most orthodox “university degrees”. Such qualifications can’t possibly be worse and more useless than “golf Course Management”, or “Hospitality Studies with Criminal Psychology.

After all, about 50% of MacDonald’s employees are already graduates whom the ZanuLieBorg concept of further education has already epically-failed. Possibly these commercial degrees, filling an obvious need, if it gets off the ground, will be more marketable to other employers than the “real” ones?

What Greens are really up to…..


…..and Simon Heffer on Victorians. (Just incidentally so right, that one.)

David Davis

But I quite accidentally chanced on this stuff today. We all know that most GreeNazis have been articulating their beliefs with quite disarming frankness for decades. So it’s good to find more people (b)logging their progress for the rest of us, sadly too busy to do much about it.

As Auberon Waugh would have said, “I’m not suggesting that we should arrest, tie to MacDonald’s restaurants and then publicly tar-and-feather all lovable sandal-wearing-greens; but  more does need to be done to combat the Green Terror”.

David Davis

From here, but here’s the crux-or-nub:-

Benjamin Williamson, economist at the think tank Centre for Economics and Business Research, said: “It’s hard to think that people are eating less, but it is possible. We know for a fact that people are trading down from organic, premium and fair trade products, to more normal lines.

Good answer, from Angry Economist


David Davis

Go on, you know you want to….

The “New Scientist” has been the “old pre-renaissance/witchcraft-pagan-preChristianphilosophy GORE-RAG” for some time now. I stopped reading it regularly about 1998, although it was prime reading for us boys at school in the 1960s, and the school even paid for it to be in the library in enough quantity for us even to take ti away, along with “Nature“, and for the nerds, the “Scientific American” (which I still even like sometimes.) Funny how that’s somehow near where the Blairwitch came to power.

Here’s what the article says: I only want to be fair and even-handed. Judge for yourself.

The sum total of these three accidentally-juxtaposed headlines is…we have lost (for now.)

So the fascist pig Mugabe, who is entirely without any redeeming features, like Mao Tse Tung was, can do what he says he wants to. It was noble, and right of him, to destroy his people’s ability to produce any food at all, for instance.

Honestly, I sometimes don’t know why we good-people carry on trying to save the world. It seems as though there is something perpetually trying to stop us.

Al Gore “probably kills people” – official

Light blogging today as I have to take the wife to do the week’s shopping at ASDA, kind of right now, and owing to Global Warming, we are having a month’s rain in 24 hours in Lancashire, and it’s of course our own fault.

LIBERTARIAN ALLIANCE ESSAY PRIZE (£ 1,000 ): IS BIG BUSINESS PART OF THE FREE MARKET?


Sean Gabb
The Libertarian Alliance, the radical free market and civil liberties
policy institute, today announces the title for its 2008 Chris R. Tame
Memorial Essay Prize competition.

This Prize is funded by a generous grant from The PROMIS Unit of Primary
Care and is in honour of Chris R. Tame (1949-2006) Founder and first
Director of the Libertarian Alliance. The Prize is worth £1000.

The essay title for 2008 is:

“Can a Libertarian Society be Described as ‘Tesco minus the State’?”
Essay Length: 3,000 words excluding notes and bibliography
Submission Date: 10th October 2008

Explanatory Note

The purpose of this year’s essay title is to draw wider attention to a
debate that has been taking place within the libertarian movement for
over a century, and that is now more relevant than ever: is big business
really part of the free market in which libertarians believe? Or is it
just the “third way” between free enterprise and socialism?

Many socialists and conservatives regard libertarians as cheerleaders for
big business. Our belief in free enterprise is understood as support for
the bigger, and therefore the more successful, corporations – General
Motors, Microsoft, HSBC, Tesco, and so forth – and for an international
financial system centred on the City of London.

Some libertarians are happy to be so regarded. They dislike the way in
which big government provides opportunities for big business to acquire
privileges that shelter it from competition. Even so, they believe that a
world without government, or a world with much less government, would be
broadly similar in its patterns of enterprise to the world that we now
have. It would be much improved, but not fundamentally dissimilar.

Other libertarians disagree. They regard big business as fundamentally a
creation of big government. Incorporation laws free entrepreneurs from
personal risk and personal responsibility, and allow the growth of large
business organisations that are bureaucratically managed. These
organisations then cartellise their markets and externalise many of their
costs. The result is systematic distortion of market behaviour from the
forms it would take without government intervention. These libertarians
often go further in their analysis by denying the legitimacy of
intellectual property rights and ownership rights in land beyond what any
individual can directly use.

Where do you stand in this debate? Are you broadly comfortable with a
global capitalism that is raising billions of people from starvation
towards affluence. Or are you a radical with a vision of a society that
has never yet been tried and is as alien and even frightening to most
people as anything promised by the Marxists.

The winner of the 2008 competition will be announced at the London
conference of the Libertarian Alliance, on Saturday the 25th October at
the National Liberal Club.

Wicked climate-change fraud properly exposed, in plain langauge, at last.


David Davis

Excellent exposé by Bishop Hill, about the carefully-diguised but fraudulent manipulation of data and preocessing, used to convince gullible people or those with little free time and a lot to do. Lots of useful embedded links to primary sources. Hat tip Samizdata, courtesy of Brian Mickelthwait, and I think the Englishman’s got his teeth into its ankle also. (Useful but slightly irrelevant, although amusing, links to all about Richard Dawkins included free if you see him.) You’ll all be pleased to see that The Devil has picked it up, too, and is somewhat less amused by the scale of the fraud even than I am!

And for some real dunking in proper coloured graphs and all that stuff, go to John Daly, here.

American mass culture is a force for good in this world …


… But would you miss “Starbucks”?

David Davis

I have to confess something: I have just had to have it explained to me what a “Starbucks” is, and what a “Latte” is also. (I thought it was pronouced “LATT” and was slang for a lavatory…as in “They never use the lats, they do it in our hats, thank God we’re not the P.B.I*…!!!)

Whatever is happening to Starbucks, the point is that:-

(1) The USA, through the benign influence of the Anglosphere and freedom of communication and trade (mostly) has been the father of mass cultural and brand identities which give happiness and daily solace to chiefly poor-people who have no time for, or have been deprived of (through the deliberate devices of Fabians, vulgar-leftists and other Nazis) otherwise available opportunities to learn about such things as “high culture and high art”.

Here are some examples:-

Ford cars. Western pop-music (whatever you say about the Beatles/Stones/Shadows/all other Brits etc, the USA invented it. Coca-Cola (and Pepsi). MacDonald’s. Burger King. KFC. Hollywood movies (without the new-lefty-slant, from now on, please!) Jazz. Colour television (HOW long did it take the Booby-See and ITV to get it going here?) We could all name more.

(2) By contrast, the rest of the world with the chief exception of Britain, plus a few laggard European hangers-on, has contributed close to f***-all. What mass-popular, mass-cultural, all-uniting concept, that is freely-available via the market, has been exported from …. Saudi-Arabia? Or …. Russia?

Never mind about Starbucks: I didn’t even know what one was. But when we see MacDonald’s outlets closing, it truly will be a cultural bad sign.

*”Poor Bloody Infantry”

Nearly bed-time, but I see that the Stalinist DEFRA anti-traders have struck again.


David Davis

They have struck here. What a bloody saddo shower of nerdy (no, not nerdy, just evil and wicked) these “people” are. How can we share a planet with these buggers? They do not see the world, and existence, through our prism.

I’d really, really, really, sometime before I die, like to know something. It’s this:-

What under Heaven is it, that causes otherwise outwardly human beings to (a) want a job like a “DEFRA inspector”, (b) actively go out and get that job (for it does not come to you, you have to want it and ask for it, like any other job) and (c) then go about joyfully “delivering consumer confidence” by threatening a retailer with bankruptcy or a criminal record?

Are there actually real, living, breathing human beings on this planet, nay, in this nation (worse) who are actively anti-Libertarian? And who actively torment others, using the force of “law” with the “it’s not our problme, it’s yours, matey” line?

Perhaps I really am autistic. Because I can’t understand why anybody would _want_ to behave, and would _wilfully_ (and in public) behave like these people?

OK, so a EU-directive says something? Disobey the f*****g thing, like everybody else. It’s what it’s for. The EU has corrupted the very idea of “law” so let’s just go with the flow and get on with our lives, get out more, and sell the kiwis whatever. Who cares, for f***’s sake?

Why not either let him give them away, if it’s so crucial (then all the “consumers” have lost is nothing at all) or sell them to poor people for less?

The Purple Scorpion does very good extra new stuff about global warmnazi-ing


David Davis

Here. Good new commentary about stuff form the Observer; that is to say, a “News Paper”, mostly read by pseudo-intellectual British lefties, with names such as Deidre Dutt-Pauker. These are a declining breed happily, but sadly with an ability to “punch above their weight”. we shall have to see about that when we set up “Libertarian re-reducation camp sites”; These might be called “free markets”, in stuff such as “journ-al-ism”.

 

Can this be true? Or am I in a waking horror-story? The British Prison-Planet’s “Eco-towns”


David Davis

I don’t usually read the Times Online, but not being temporarily ablt to get the Barclay Bugle, I found THIS.

The line about “30% of the homes being affordable” was especially nice. Go read the whole thing – the monumental contempt for the standard details of individual human beings’ lives in a modern country is so staggering that it almost rears up to space, in monumental invisibility.

The comments are really fun too.

Fuels, Petrol. Biofuels, Starvation. Awfully useful and interesting. I am particularly struck by the picture of AL GORE SHITTING CRUDE OIL TO HELP MANKIND


David Davis

The Last Ditch says it here, and he got it from here. Al Gore can shit oil: this shall be for Mankind to live and breed and go forth and multiply in the Universe (where we shall find even more, as Titan has oceans of it the size of the Black Sea and almost inevitably more undiscovered since Titan is bigger than the Moon or Mercury.) The Wahabists can return to their roots, and their (respected) culture, which we have so rudely and impolitely disturbed, for them, being inferior to them in all ways possible, as we of course are.

Apologies for that sentence (above) being so long in the first draft. I was thinking and not writing. I have broken it up a bit now.

It’s barbecue time! (It’s the Anglosphere … we burn food for fun, because we have won!)It’s a “RITUAL”, you know … are not we allowed to have some of those?


David Davis

NB: This is NOT the same thing as what the (deep) Greenazis do to burn food. They really really burn food, in reality, in front of the noses of poor people. They starve real people and cause real deaths, by growing “corn” in the USA and “sugar cane” in “Brazil”, to burn the expensively-extracted ethanol as “fuel”.

I am definitely NOT saying that Barbecueing is any more than an honourable and friendly tradition between friends. We can do this nice thing, in the plenitude of our culinary and agricultural richness (which is due to science.) We do this in fun, to hark back to our pre-pastoral hunter-gatherer-ancestry and every so often to carbonise some tasty stuff over a “fire”, and share it together.

Barbecueing teaches us a little about what we once were, and emphasises, through science and engineering, what we SHALL BECOME.

What bastards the “deep Greens” must be! We don’t do that sort of low, nasty thing here (er, much, yet….) like killing people for actual lack of food, and then trying to JUSTIFY IT.

This is from my old friend Greg Lance-Watkins:-

We are about to enter the summer and BBQ season. Therefore it is
important to refresh your memory
on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity,
as it’s the only type of cooking a ‘real’ man will do,
(probably because there is an element of danger involved.)
When a man volunteers to do the BBQ
the following chain of events are put into motion:Routine…
(1) The woman buys the food.
(2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes
dessert.
(3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along
with
the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who
is
lounging beside the grill – beer in hand.
Here comes the important part:

(4) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.

More routine….

(5) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.

(6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning.
He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he deals
with
the situation.

Important again

(7) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE
WOMAN.

More routine….

(8) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils,
napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.

(9) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

And most important of all:

(10) Everyone PRAISES and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts. He
then announces that we should do it again soon!

(11) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed
‘her night off.’ And, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes
that there’s just no pleasing some women….

This is how BBQs or Brais are conducted in Britain, The Anglosphere
and The British Commonwealth.
We do not wish to have the corrupt and centralised, undemocratic
and profligate EU acting as it does in almost every other area of human
activity and producing a huge set of over burdening destructive diktats
employing huge numbers of useless parasitic apparatchiks to enforce
their pointless rule.
 
 
 
 

 

 

First, tobacco. Then travelling freely. Now it’s alcohol. Food’s next.


You just HAVE to see this, from Moonbattery. If these “Vegans” weren’t simply the unfathomably evil and deliberate destroyers of Man which they are, eating (as they must undoubtedly do) LOVELY tasty greasy bacon sandwiches in the night by the light of the fridge while nobody is looking, then they would be just funny.

They are not funny, not funny at all. We should fear them, and expose them, like the Ringwraiths which they are.

I’m not at all sure what ought to be done about these people. Trouble is, they make the subject of “good” Wireless Tele Vision, and others will pay them attention, reinforcing their belief that they are thus right.

Telechefs, slebs, gratuitous “rudeness-theatre”, great food and Gordon Ramsay.


David Davis

A couple of weeks ago I began the long slow campaign to lambast jumped-up-chappies who can cook well, to whose heads goes the drug of celebrity-power, and who than start to influence politicians (all evil, especially at the moment) to execute pernicious and unthought-through “policies”, the effects of which will inflict on ordinary working people the torments reserved by Dante for the damned.

It seems that the Daily Telegraph thought he was going over the hill some time ago – nearly nine months, a lifetime in the sleb media.

Ramsay is a cook – plain and simple. He is a very, very good one, there’s no denying that: he would not have made the fortune he has, otherwise. The problem comes with all these people when they start believing the notion that the State ought to enforce certain behaviour, and that they and they alone have the power and right to dictate what to do. I even believe that the wife of a pop singer called Mr Andrew Sumner is trying to save the rain forests by flying everywhere with hundreds of staff, to “work on people”.

In a libertarian world, which is to say in reality something approaching a conservative minimal state, the way to influence policy would be truly via the ballot box. I suppose poeple like ramsay are trying to bypass it because they think the mechanism doesn’t work any more?

GUNS telechefs food gordon ramsay jamie oliver rick steyn garry rhodes delia smith that other chap whose name I can’t remember two fat ladies diet stalinism


David Davis

The gunnery-director of REVENGE will, in due course, “shift target to next-ahead”, from telechefs to, er, something else. Not quite sure what, yet, I have not decided. But they are food for thought for some posts yet. 

I really do feel like savaging these guys (and they mostly are guys, God Blast them) for some days. Poor old Delia Smith, and all she wants to do is tell you how best to boil an egg, for God’s sake, is sheer harmlessness by comparison.

Long live female telecooks. Great chaps they are. (Not that Tamsin-thingy-woman who is a poseur, because she has a rather large garden which telly-wireless queers want to wet themselves in, while filming, and thinks she can tell people what to eat as she is quite rich, like poor mad tortured Prince Charles who is a socialist although he genuinely believes that he is not. I don’t know what to suggest that we do about him: poor, good-natured and honest, tortured man that he is. He can’t be engaged as a KIng, for sure, it would be too dangerous in the present world political climate. His mind is not focussed on real threats to the Anglosphere.)

Sorry. I don’t really watch the wireless tele vision. I don’t even remember what these people are called. She might not even be a Tamsin, even.

Fog and smoke in battlefield area. Probably not any good to poor sad dead Heath Ledger, though, for you can “search site” for that one post where we got roasted by someone who said “f*** you!!!!!!” (We don’t print 4-letter-words on this blog. I don’t allow it. No. Not. Nada. Zilch. Only in the comments, put in by others, to show who we are, and who the enemy are.)

Oh, and “Two Fat ladies” are great, even though one of them is dead.

Oh, and look at this about Gordon Ramsay (posted about yesterday.)


This is what we said yesterday.

David Davis

Here in the Guardian some new stuff about his antics and “leger-de-main” about “ingredients” “sourcing”. (Great newspaper, the Guardian, often but not always. how can it be so socialist, and yet so self-examining?)

Telechefs are cooks. Cooks may be great and marvellously skilled individuals, and probably mostly are. I do not know. But if they choose to cook for money, they then ought to show humility towards the people which pay them, and not the other way around.

I blame “wireless tele vision” [that's what it really is] , currently being used as an instrument of mental control by stalinist guvmints, including this one.

 

 

I have been wanting to slag off telechefs for years, they being the epitome of what makes thinking people hate the West. Someone got there first, what a bummer, I am a lazy thicko.


David Davis

Samizdata does a keenly-written and thoughtful hatchet-job on Gordon Ramsay. Wish I’d thought of that attack myself, it’s good and to the point, specially in the persent planetary climate of global cooling and impending famine-disaster, and how globalisation could save whole populations of humans (who then would not die) in return for money. AttaPerry!

I have, as it says, been becoming increasingly irritated, and hurt also, by “telechefs” and their policy-positions (which they affect to have, as is strange) for some years. There is no wikipage for these people which I also find strange, given the effect they seem to have on the political life of the nation as regards food and consumption patterns.

On the one hand, they (seem to) seek to spice up our gustatory lives and palates, with delectably-prepared and televisually-fondled stuff that looks scrumptious, and sounds even better. They use all sorts of materials that seem exotic and come from faraway places, like Peru (strawberries and asparagus in the Northen Hemisphere winter – grand! Why the f*** didn’t we think of that years ago?)

On the other hand, having got famous and affording Ferraris and other restaurants, they are thus therefore available to be brown-nosed by Al Gore and other pop singers and film stars of his ilk. Gore and the othet film stars and pop singers are of course all great scientists and logicians, and so “telechefs”, falling under the baleful influence of these devils in return for money, seek to do these things:-

(a) ruin any pleasure gained from authorised-daytime-eating-activity for British schoolchildren, and

(b) support the pre-capitalist and barbarian notion that all food ought to be “locally grown or raised”. EU grandees, who do and support nothing of this kind whatever (or they would get bored and therefore starve), eat at their restaurants.

My own comment on the samizdata post, about what could be done to telechefs, seems to have been removed. Perhaps I will decide not to offer to write for them after all….Or, perhaps their spam-filter took out “television-cooking-pron”. I really thought “pron” would get through. Oh well, never mind. Perhaps they will de-censor it for you, I hope so (see comments.)

Bioethanol crime burning food atrocity murder children corn life


David Davis

Libertarian Alliance quote of the day….from our good and right friends at Delaware Libertarian…

The Stupidity of Ethanol in a single sentence

Peg, at A Secondhand Conjecture

, finds a sentence that cuts to the heart of the matter:

 

Every fill of the tank with ethanol uses the same amount of corn a child would eat in a year, and let’s not even talk about the amount of potable water used to grow the corn in the first place.

Sort of makes fossil fuels seem more rational, huh?

“Join British Army”


A search-engine string that hit us today, suddenly, on the port beam, in a heavy following sea……they do that, you know. You just don’t see them coming, the radar’s sort of quiet, but then you find you have to say something, to plug the hole in the hull. Hard business, running a Ship. Better call the Pusser to issue Grog to the Men. Everyone in the port/after-PO’s mess is soaked through, and angry.

The point about the British Army is that, if one is into armies and is either a libertarian, a liberal or a conservative (what is the practical difference in political terms?) and therefore knows truly what armies are for in this new, slightly un-nerving 21st-century world in which humorous but badly-challenged mountebanks like “Al” “Gore” and somebody else called “Putin” or “Ahmadinejad” or “Mugabe” or whatever it is, are disporting themselves for the benefit of the wireless tele bumboys at the BBC,  then it is the real thing.

Sorry, that sentence was too long. I will re-edit it. Later.

David Davis

Now I wonder why anybody, today, would want to do that thing, given the following:

(a) No body-armour (not like working for proper Defence-Ministers like in the USA or France)

(b) Calumnical criticism by non-combatant Maxist turds and toads, masquerading as “teachers”, who go round schools telling you how nasty and horrid the British Army is.

(c) No proper American or South-African vehicles (I bet the Israelis have got some too, God bless them! Let’s make them an offer) to protect you from “mines” (MINES for God’s sake? How low-tech can you go? No t*******d’s mine can be THAT big, even if bought from North Korea and pretending to be nuclear) or IEDs – I thought these were contraceptives until I listened to that Iranian madman who captured our whole navy last year.

More about “Fairtrade is a fraud” – nice pamphlet by the Institute of Economic Affairs


David Davis

Last month one of our experienced writers said that “Fairtrade is a Fraud”.  While this IEA pamphlet here today does not deny the inherent and (very) inconvenient truth of this statement, it enlarges on some of the relationships involved in the whole “Fairtrade” scam, and explains why the entire “Fairtrade” flim-flam-branding exercise has the welfare of the “growers” as the least of its concerns.

Or you can see it here.

Passive drinking …. here we go down to the cesspit again! Next, it will be “passive driving”. Wonder when we will have to admit to “passive sex” as a way of reducing “teenage pregnancy”?


David Davis

Here we go. The stalinist bastards have got out of bed before us, as ever (‘coz they izz boring turds who don’t write computer-games or run silicon-valley firms.) Perhaps we should design less comuter games, and have less long hair and lip-piercings; and instead carry more real guns and point them while loaded at bureaucrats who have no sense of humour.

Why don’t bureaucrats laugh at anythng? When did you last see a “public employee” laugh?

I though so.

Here’s some of it:-

 

The war on ‘passive drinking’

Posted by Bruno Waterfield on 17 Apr 2008  at 21:27

Crime, EU, public health, Alcohol

 

European Union and United Nations officials are plotting to make drinking as socially unacceptable as smoking.

 

Your drink could endanger others, claim UN and EU officials

Hectoring campaigns over “passive smoking” are credited for Europe’s almost total smoking ban. Now alcohol is in the sights of the public health miserablists and they have invented the concept of “passive drinking” as their killer argument.

The Daily Mail takes up a report in New Scientist to trumpet a new “guilt campaign” that is heading our way. “The World Health Organisation’s global strategy will aim to match the success of campaigns which have made smokers feel guilty about the harm second-hand smoke does to others,” says the report.

Ian Gilmore, president of the Royal College of Physicians is wheeled on to confirm the new approach. “The tipping point for banning smoking in public places was third party damage,” he said.

The EU public health brigade are not far behind, in fact Brussels miserablists in the European Commission’s DG SANCO have been trying to poison the drinking debate with this new assault on reason for years.

I took up the EU “passive drinking” debate around two years ago in response to strident claims, in a Commission report, about the high environmental or social toll of alcohol, the “harm done by someone else’s drinking”.

“The total tangible cost of alcohol to EU society in 2003 was estimated to be €125bn (€79bn-€220bn), equivalent to 1.3 per cent GDP, and which is roughly the same value as that found recently for tobacco,” said the report written by Dr Peter Anderson, who has a background in the World Health Organisation (WHO) and who played a leading role in Tobacco Free Initiative Europe.

“The intangible costs show the value people place on pain, suffering and lost life that occurs due to the criminal, social and health harms caused by alcohol. In 2003 these were estimated to be €270bn, with other ways of valuing the same harms producing estimates between €150bn and €760bn.”

On Thursday, at an informal meeting of health ministers in Brdo, Slovenian Health Minister, Zofija Mazej Kukovič dusted off the report – and its language.

“Harmful and dangerous alcohol consumption causes more than seven per cent of the premature morbidity and mortality in our countries. The annual costs stemming from this have been estimated at as much as €125 billion for the EU as a whole. However, the harm caused by alcohol is still underestimated,” she said.

The figures are meant to be pretty scary. Drink is responsible for 2,000 homicides, four out of 10 of Europe’s annual murders. “The economic cost of alcohol-attributable crime has been estimated to be €33bn in the EU for 2003….while the intangible cost of the physical and psychological effects of crime has been valued at €9bn – €37bn,” said the Anderson report.

Children, too, are passive victims of drinking. “Many of the harms caused by alcohol are borne by people other than the drinker responsible. This includes 60,000 underweight births, as well as 16 per cent of child abuse and neglect, and five to nine million children in families adversely affected by alcohol,” says the EU report’s summary.

 

The link made by between alcohol and crime today, whether violence or child abuse or other social ills, follows not from hard facts but from an outlook that sees human characteristics as damaging in general. And if human beings, particularly when under the influence of stimulants, are destructive, then, the argument goes, social intervention must follow. The idea that almost any activity – drinking, eating, speaking, even thinking – can cause harm is often blown out of proportion and used to generate frightening figures and policies.

The sheer absurdity of the idea of “passive drinking” would be funny if the public health lobby was not so powerful and unpleasant. I found that in a twist of irony, probably lost on po-faced public health types, that the expression “passive drinking” seems to have originated as a spoof in two Peter Simple columns in the Daily Telegraph in 2002 and 2003, written by the late Michael Wharton.

Mocking the rise of nonsense research to justify social measures, he wrote about research work being carried out by “Dr Ron Hardware of Nerdley University”.

“They were the first to discover the scourge of ‘passive drinking’, showing by painstaking experiments and finely adjusted statistics that it was just as deadly as ‘passive smoking’ and equally capable of causing cancer and innumerable other ills,” he wrote.

It is no longer a joke or satire – do read more here on Spiked.

We need to stand up to these people.

Sean Gabb, talking about “OBESITY” in the BBC – interesting comment


David Davis

I don’t know anything about this idea, but it sounds interestingly plausible. Would any bloggeeks who inhabit this place like to give it “peer review”?

G E Alderson

(the above is where you can go to talk to the guy who commented what follows):

The Government are taking advice from a section of the medical profession who (as Prof. Mann’s review has determined) has a 99% failure rate. We had an obesity incidence in, say, 1960 that occurred in ‘NOCTURNAL HUNTER PHENOTYPES’ who inadvertently overate when eating in daylight.

With the diet of 1960, the ‘DIURNAL HUNTER PHENOTYPE’ eating in daylight did NOT overeat and become obese.

NOW there has been a significant (for the HUNTER PHENOTYPE) change in the British diet.

On an exponential curve (I think he’s being a bit hyperbolic here – no pun intended! – Ed.) over the last 40 years or so, the SOURCE of the fat content has switched from FAUNA to FLORA. The metabolism of the HUNTER PHENOTYPE does NOT recognise FLORA fats when swallowed (at any time of day) and therefore nowadays the DIURNAL version (still eating at the correct time – daylight) are inadvertantly overeating FLORA fat and gaining weight increasing the INCIDENCE of obesity.

REVERSE the fat source switch and not only do the DIURNAL stop overeating and therefore gain no more weight, the position could not be better. Any weight gained through inadvertant overeating which is designated by the body as ’surplus to requirements, is AUTONOMICALLY REMOVED via thermogenesis in Brown Adipose Tissue. This is the theoretical explanation of the Atkins weight loss but it is NOT necessary to avoid the carbohydrates.

The HUNTER PHENOTYPE perceive FAUNA fats to ‘taste nicer’ than FLORA fats. Until the medical profession decided to ‘demonise’ animal fat, this taste prefernce was enough to keep the HUNTERS shunning the FLORA fat as it began to arrive and take its place in the British diet.
The ONLY thing that is needed is to tell the food industry that they must use a ‘Hunter friendly logo’ that guarantees the food has a fat content that is entirely from a FAUNA source with NO FLORA fat content. The STORK TASTE TEST of about 40 years ago (6 out of 10 ‘can’t tell Stork from butter) gives a ‘ballpark’ figure of approx. 40% of the British population being HUNTERS. The food industry SHOULD be willing to produce this food when they are informed that the GPs are about to tell 40% of the population to only buy food with this logo.
When the CORRECT advice is to tell people to eat food that they will find ‘TASTES NICER’ than what they are currently eating (once this food becomes available) that is advice THEY WILL GLADLY FOLLOW.
They do not need to take any exercise unless they want to. The ONLY other thing they need to do to let the weight loss occur AUTONOMICALLY is to wean themselves slowly (to avoid withdrawal symptoms) off caffeine.
The DIURNAL HUNTERS, as a generalisation will ignore all this current advice anyway but will continue to get fatter (some dangerously so) due to the omnipresence of the FLORA fats and the ever diminishing FAUNA fats in the current diet.
The full theory is available on serious request.

The New Dark Age … welcome to British State education in the next decade.


David Davis

Christina Speight, an old mate from eurorealist, comments on her own place: 

The trouble with education in Britain is that we have now gone full circle.  The youngsters who were not taught properly 20 years ago are now  the teachers of today, knowing nothing,  but high on waffle and vague theories.   They  therefore find themselves unable to teach history, geography, literature, languages, art and music because they don’t know these subjects themselves.

So they campaign to institutionalise their ignorance.  

At a time when 9 out of 10 young men who want to join the army are rejected by the recruiters as incapable of fighting a modern war (some admittedly  from general unfitness or drug use) we should be grateful that at least 10% have been educated properly enough to do a man’s job.   TEN PERCENT  - and “education, education, education” was to be top priority.”
Head teachers want to drop National Curriculum in schools
By Julie Henry
A range of school subjects could be swept away under new teaching proposals.
The attack on the National Curriculum, which has dictated school timetables for 20 years, could spell the end of separate classes in history, geography, literature, languages, art and music.
Instead, schools would be allowed to decide how they teach big themes such as global warming, conflict and healthy living.
The present list of subjects would be reduced to little more than English, mathematics and computing. The National Association of Head Teachers, responding to a select committee inquiry into whether the National Curriculum is “fit for purpose”, said its structure of 14 compulsory subjects should be replaced by a “minimum framework” that would be “skills and competence-based, rather than prescriptive and knowledge-based”.
Growing calls for flexibility, coupled with a series of curriculum reviews ordered by ministers, represent a serious threat to the future of the traditional timetable.
Academics defended the National Curriculum, saying it was the best guarantee that children were exposed to vital areas of study.
“We haven’t arrived at these subjects by accident,” said Prof Alan Smithers, of Buckingham University. “We have discovered a number of ways of making sense of the world which have been formulated as the sciences, humanities, social sciences and expressive art. It is reasonable to require young people to engage in these vital subjects for a spell of time.”

More self-promoting potty prelates in the poo … “Recycle or go to hell” … Vatican re-writes the seven deadly sins


David Davis

I don’t know what’s got into these people. Top church-wallahs, of whatever persuasion, are likely to be quite sharp intelligent guys. They have all that time to study and reflect, plus this is the age of the internet.

But we have them saying stuff like this. No longer, are you consigned to eternal lectures by Ken Livingstone about London’s celebratory diversity while standing naked in the pouring rain next to a large gutter-puddle in the Elephant-and-Castle oneway system, for showing  sloth, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, wrath and pride: these sins “now have a rather individualistic dimension”, says Monsignor Gianfranco Girotti, a “close ally of the Pope and the head of the Apostolic Penitentiary, one of the Roman Curia’s main courts”. 

Instead, you will rot in the hell above through doing these….

genetic modification,

carrying out experiments on humans,

polluting the environment,

causing social injustice,

causing poverty,

becoming obscenely wealthy and …. naturally (what else?) …. 

taking drugs.

Don’t know about you, but I sometimes feel like running the odd little exercise in genetic modification on sunny summer afternoons.

There is also this uncontrollable compulsion to cause a spot of poverty…..I just HAVE to stock up these days on tungsten filament light bulbs, against the day when they will be banned, so I can still see to type. 

After a couple of drinks (it’s always a couple, isn’t it) I sometimes get the urge to go out and cause some social injustice. Perhpas like punching out some bureaucrat’s lights, or making a rude face at a picture of Gordon Brown while nobody is looking…..or (really really daring, this one) saying something nice about tesco in front of Sir Terry Leahy.  

                                                    

ANOTHER REASON WHY YOU MUST CHOOSE TO SMOKE


I think libertarians ought all to pretend publicly to smoke, even if they do not in reality. This would also be a grand gesture in memory of Chris Tame, who thought it was a nasty and disgusting, smelly, antisocial habit, would not allow it in his flat, and battled mercilessly against the health-nazis all his working life, especially while working for FOREST for the rights of smokers. Dear old chap, gold-pieces be upon him in Paradise. 

David Davis

Here’s the BBC on this anti-smoking Statist Nazis thingy-stuff

A cigarette “display ban” is being considered. A particular and identifiable droid, known in certain circles by other droids as a “Dawn-Primarolo” , is “concerned” “for the children”.

How could any living being give any job whatsoever, to someone called “Dawn” and “Primarolo” in the same line? It would have to be a wind-up by students on a rag-day.  There are no people called that. The droid referred to  must therefore be a real droid, and so legally therefore can’t exist as a person or a corporate person. Therefore it can’t discuss stuff known as “draft legislation” or “consultation” “papers”, “white papers”, green papers”. (We were given “green paper” at school in the 1960s when we had failed some task and had to redo it)

This stuff is for Nazis to discuss and not droids, so I don’t know what an early-mark Primdroid is doing being switched on here and running.

Moreover, as this blog’s historian readers will know, smoking was first linked with lung cancer by “scientists” in the Third Reich. Of course, they were quite correct. But that’s not the point: if people tell you to not do something for your own good, you become their FARM ANIMAL.

You are a  human being. Either you want to be that animal, or you do not.

Your body is either yours, or theirs (think of the implications, if you are a woman or girl – a much more dangerous thing to be under post-60s-post-western-deconstructionistic-femi-nazism, than was the case in the British Empire and Commonwealth, which functioned according to the Ten Commandments (sorry, I meant the Gospels! spotted by the comentariat..) and the Mosaic Decalogue, and also, er, Magna Carta and other stuff that is very very scary to socialists and Kingists……)

Will you allow yourself, as a woman, to be raped, because a bureaucrat says she(he) wants to “do” you? if S(he) brings the right forms, duly signed and countersigned, to your house?

Will you forbear from smoking because a bureaucrat says you must not?

 YOU have to decide.

PIGS ARE WORTH IT … no, not the Police, idiot, the other sort.


David Davis

I am not generally known to be in favour of “combination” – that is to say, things such as “trade unions” (an oxymoron of course, when described in their modern socialist anti-western anti-liberal sense – a Libertarian administration presided over by me would ask its Parliament to “debate their status”) and this also goes for any people trying to lobby for “change”, in particular where this means you have to “pay more for food” other than via free market processes operating. This of course encompasses all the glitterati, mediarati, the commentariat, soviet-apparatchiks and stalinists campaigning for the manacles to be put on supermarkets, so as to “support little local shops and producers”.

However, I came across this. http://www.pigsareworthit.com

British Stalinist government, in bed with the media, now interfering in voluntary contractual shopping arrangements. 13 reasons why you should demand free plastic carrier-bags.


David Davis 

And those were just the 13 I could stump up with in as many minutes of typing. You ‘orrible lot will want to add more – so, comments please! 

Today, we have this splashed all over the Daily Mail. The Dear Leader, Gordon Brown, has “thrown his weight” behind the Daily Mail’s landmark campaign to “banish the bags”, with an “impassioned plea” to retailers.

Here are some extracts;

 Gordon Brown gives supermarkets one year to start charging for plastic bags … or else…..

The Prime Minister is lending his voice to the Daily Mail’s campaign against the blight of “plastic poison”.

Supermarkets will be forced to charge their customers for disposable carrier bags under plans for a new green levy drawn up by Gordon Brown. They will be given a year to end their reliance on single-use plastic bags or face a legal requirement to introduce a charge and reveal how much it raises.

Gordon Brown: Plan for action in war on plastic

The Prime Minister will introduce legislation next month to impose a charge of 5p or even more on all giveaway bags next year if they fail to comply.

And today he throws his weight behind the Daily Mail’s landmark “Banish the Bags” campaign with an impassioned plea to retailers.

Writing exclusively for the Mail, he urges them to follow the example of Marks & Spencer by calling time on the wasteful culture of free single-use carrier bags that is fouling the planet.

And he reveals that like millions of families each week, he and his wife Sarah are left with a “binful of plastic bags” from their supermarket delivery to remind them of the scale of the problem.

The Mail campaign, and its shocking image of a majestic giant turtle swathed in deadly plastic, has triggered an unprecedented response from readers clamouring for action to end “plastic pollution” caused by 13billion bags handed out by shops each year.

Film stars, environmental groups, academics and politicians have rallied to the campaign.

Last night, Tesco and Sainsbury’s responded to public pressure by confirming that they are drawing up plans to reduce the amount of plastic bags they give away.

And yesterday, the trade body which represents 33,000 convenience stores said they are ready to accept a plastic bag tax in a bid to reduce the number handed out.

There are suspicions that many major chains have been dragging their feet on the issue.

Threats of force if non-compliance ensues do not, to me, sound like an “impassioned plea”. This is, in semantic terms, what is called “ruling by decree”. 

Furthermore, if   Film stars, environmental groups, academics and politicians   have all “rallied” to this cause, then, like Margaret Thatcher used to do with each morning’s Guardian newspaper (she read it and decided to do exacty the opposite of what it recommended) we ought to run a mile from these people.

And…..John Band of bantitry has also just ripped the pants off the greenazis here. (Hat Tip from the Devil.)

And not, here are MY thirteen reasons to use and praise the polythene carrier bag:

(1) it uses less than one cc of cheap, burnable hydrocarbons – it is the singel most efficient and cheapest method of bulk carriage on the planet, or ever.

(2) it requires little energy resources to make, per unit bag, and can be burnt afterwards, to release its carbon back to the air where it correctly belongs.

(3) you can clear up child-vomit into it and bin it for no money.

(4) you can carry stuff home on the bus easily in it.

(5) making it gives employment to thousands of people, here and in LDCs.

(6) you can recycle bulk amounts of them, if you really really must, into low-grade plastic goods.

(7) it sets man apart from the “animals”, who have foolishly, and to their eternal mortal peril, not studied chemistry and so not developed means of moving bulk goods; so they go extinct, or starve in the dark when food is scarce (and then greenazis make us run along and jump about and get them out of their mess.)

(8) you can wrap stuff in it for storage for long periods, and unlike paper or “natural” products, it stays waterproof, does not go mouldy, and does not degrade.

(9) you can hurl in-car-rubbish wrapped in one, into a passing litter-bin, without getting out of the car. You have only to wind down the window, park within 5 feet of the bin, and aim well.

(10) you can line the inside of the roof of your thatched caveman’s hut with lots of them (laid like slates, start at the BOTTOM, overlap triple in thirds just like slate (as used to be) row by row, and work UP!) when the greenazis stop you from building proper houses that you can live in. The handles even act like hooks and can be hung over the projecting twig-ends, so you don’t even have to use the nails that they won’t allow you to anyway (too much “carbon”.) Then, when you can’t replace the rotting thatch as the greenazis won’t let you cut any more reeds from the new wetlands where Cambridge used to stand, the water still won’t get inside.

(11) Gordon Brown, the dear leader, and Sarah, the Mother of the People, have decreed that those with whom you would voluntarily do business, may not offer you, of their own volition, a convenient way to carry away your just goods, for nothing. This last alone is good and sufficient reason for at last standing up to the Nazi leftist control-freakish moonbattery of our Dear Leaders and their unconscionably wicked (they KNOW they are doing it, it is deliberate) film-star friends.

(12) you can put ot over your head in bed while shagging the slightly rough bird you picked up in the disco after the students’ uni-meeting; or you can do the “double-bag-job” – she wears one too in case yours falls off.

(13) you can vomit into it on those long bus-journeys the greenazis will make you take everywhere, using your “internal passport” (see MEG HILLIER MP  (Lab.) ) after cars are banned. Then, stow it surreptitiously between the broken and parting plastic wall-plates of the bus, just before you queue off.

If the grocers cave in, we are truly lost. Not just this, everything.

The British “national curriculum” syllabus for “Geography” … Have you ever wondered what it contains?


David Davis 

This evening I went with my boy (year 9) to discuss “options” for his GCSE years. below is some exerpts of what the school’s batty-chatty moonbattery leaflet says about this grand and formerly rigorous subject, in which we learned where everything was, how to use (proper) maps, how to draft same, and how the surface of the planet got like it did.

I quote:

….. Geography tackles the big issues ; (1) Environmental responsibility, (2) Our global interdependence, (3) Cultural understanding and tolerance, (4) Commerce, trade and industry (but not in the way you think, people…)

…. Geographers can ;

Make a consice (SIC) report; Handle data; Ask questions and find the answers; make decisions about an issue; analyse material; manage themselves; solve problems; independent thinkers (what does this mean here? sic, again). The results show (source: AGCAS):

* 40.6% “management and administration”

* 24.8% “further training” (inc PCgE/teaching)

* 11.4% “financial sector”

* 10.4% “retail”

* 10% “other professional inc “media” “

I leave you all to decide what part of the Public Sector socialist salariat each of these percentages corresponds to!

In fact very little “classical” Geography is now taught at all. There is a token amount of “map reading”, in which you find the 100-m OS reference for the wind-turbine, and you still have to know what an oxbow lake is. You’ll never visit one (you might fall in, “Health and Safety!”) You may even do a project about “How effective are the new (expensive!) flood defences in York” (but you don’t know where York is, because you were just bussed there) or “How effective are the congestion control measures round Beatrix Potter’s house?”, or “Is Kirkby Stephen a “honeypot destination?” (you don’t know where that is either nor care what its “CBD” is, for you were just bussed there too…I’m sure its august residents would not agree, and I’d support them – it’s very nice – but your lot just think it’s a boring little hole coz’ you are 15-y-o-cool-dudes.)

You also learn about “TNCs” and how they exploit “local labour, often women and children” for “low wages” in “LDCs”, where “social legislation is not strong”, making stuff like “NIKE trainers” (whatever those might be) for sale for “profit” in “MDCs”.

‘Nuff said.

The food and water nazis are increasing their reach. Now, “Bottled Water is Immoral”.


David Davis

This from today’s Sunday Telegraph. Although the wheels are coming, scientifically and logically as they must anyway, off the global warm-mongering-bandwaggon, these interfering Stalinists not only don’t learn and don’t say “sorry”, they keep buggering on. Some of it is worth quoting for its breathtaking pomposity:

Drinking bottled water should be made as unfashionable as smoking, according to a government adviser.

“We have to make people think that it’s unfashionable just as we have with smoking. We need a similar campaign to convince people that this is wrong,” said Tim Lang, the Government’s naural resources commissioner.

  Bottled water generates up to 600 times more C02 than tap water
Bottled water generates upto 600 times more CO2 than tap water

Phil Woolas, the environment minister, added that the amount of money spent on mineral water “borders on being morally unacceptable”.

Their comments come as new research shows that drinking a bottle of water has the same impact on the environment as driving a car for a kilometre. Conservation groups and water providers have started a campaign against the £2 billion industry.

A BBC Panorama documentary, “Bottled Water: Who Needs It?”, to be broadcast tomorrow says that in terms of production, a litre bottle of Evian or Volvic generates up to 600 times more CO2 than a litre of tap water.

If semi-state-supplied tap water, provided by (not really free market) water “companies” did not taste and smell so utterly disgusting, then perhaps more people would drink it. But then, in a Nazified socialist paradise with no available or permitted plastic bottles (your carbon footprint, sonny), how do you take it with you on a sunny day, or indeed any other kind of day?

Today we got……

Political Correctness – more on this and the enforcement thereof. Degrading of property rights in the UK by stalinist government


In today’s TIMES, we have this;

Here is a summary if the link breaks;

Greater powers for official ‘snoopers’
Jill Sherman, Whitehall Editor
More than a dozen Bills going through Parliament extend

the powers of state inspectors to enter
people’s homes, the Government has admitted.
Despite a pledge by Gordon Brown last October
that he would limit powers and introduce a liberty
test, he has extended the right to enter property in
planning, crime, environmental, education and
health legislation.
A parliamentary answer obtained by the
Conservatives shows that nine Bills and one draft Bill contain
new powers of entry, with three others entrenching
existing powers.

“The fact that Gordon Brown is entrenching and
extending powers of state bureaucrats to enter
people’s homes makes a mockery of his so-called
review into powers of entry,” Eric Pickles, the
Shadow Communities Secretary, said.
The Counter-terrorism Bill and the Criminal Justice
and Immigration Bill, for example, allow entrance to
properties to enforce “social disorder” and
anti-terrorist laws. The Education and Skills Bill
allows the State to inspect private schools and the
Climate Change Bill allows officials to enter homes
to enforce black bin charges and to monitor
carbon-trading schemes.

Mr Pickles, who said that there was a need for
measures to tackle crime and terrorism, added:
 “Yet this uncontrolled extension contradicts Gordon
Brown’s empty promises on liberty and is another
worrying sign of the surveillance state.”
A survey of state powers to enter people’s homes
by the Centre for Policy Studies last April highlighted
a significant expansion of entry powers under Labour.
The spokesman from the Home Office said that all the
Bills would be included in the review of powers
of entry. The spokesman added that it was inevitable
that some new powers had to be included in the Bills
to ensure the laws were enforceable.

[This is a typical response from a person stripping you of your
liberties, and a somewhat lazy and casual one at that -Christina Speight] (see her blog)

There comes a point where, if we consider what property rights are, the line dividing them from the “rights” (temporal) delegated by consent to a “state” becomes stepped-over, and not by us but by the “state”.

We have to begin putting the word “state” in parantheses, to indicate our further and further sundering from it and its now avowed objectives. This is despite however in favour we were formally, even slightly, of a minimal “state”, as minimal-statist libertarians (there really are such people!)

We ought to consider what remedies can be taken, against this increasing tide of forced entry and (inevitable) turning-over of our private possessions, including our rubbish (which ought also to be private, for quite sound reasons.) So you green-nazis you can go stuff this new stuff up your jacksis – look it up if you don’t know what a “jacksi” is (and I bet you won’t find it on any wiki either.)

Suppose I wanted to dig a coal mine in my back garden, here? I will have to go quite deep, at least 11,000 feet as the “Wigan-Nine” – that great and renowned seam which drove the Battle of the Atlantic in WW1, and which probably does still yet underlie me here, had its shafts about 20 miles east, and tilts west at a gradient of about 1 in 11. Apart from the problem of disposing of the spoil (a simple matter of property rights and contract) why can’t I do it?

The boundary of property rights between the individual and the “state” stops at the individual’s fence. If we allow “states” to tax fixed property (and there are reasonably sound minimal-statist arguments for allowing a limited measure of this, as opposed to “direct taxation of income” which can be corrupted and get out of hand as is now the case) then in return we must have rights of limitation of allowing Nazi bureauphilia-crazed loons to trample unannounced all over our property. If there is no private sphere (the Englishman’s Castle) then we live in Cuba or North Korea and we might as well go there.

The Lent Fast; is this a “Christian Ramadan”? Or is “Ramadan” a Muslim rip-off of the tormenting of Christ? so, did Mohammed get the idea from us, or what? Libertarianism and theory of “religion-ness”.


It’s not just us here, whose supposed secular prelates are losing their nerve against what they see as an unstoppable trend. A man described as an “Arch-Bishop”, called Rowan Williams, has got into hot water with the Devil recently.

So, if you are a Dutch catholic, what to do? Go with it, or resist? If the prevailing terms of discourse in your civilisation seem to be against you, then perhaps go with it…..for now.

But then, finally, when “they” (whoever they may be) come for YOU, and there is nobody to speak for you, what then?

What’s in a name?   [Mark Steyn]

It’s not just Anglican Archbishops who are determined to make the transition painless:

Dutch Catholics have re-branded the Lent fast as the “Christian Ramadan” in an attempt to appeal to young people who are more likely to know about Islam than Christianity.

I am not clear totally about this, not having been there in real time, but I think that Jesus Christ (is said to have) fasted in the desert for 40 days, about the year 28 or 29 AD. Mohammad must have finished honing his desert-survival-guide-cum-political-strategy-and-slave-handling-manual, for his various relations, conquered-and-subdued-populations-and-hench-people, about the year 632 AD, which is when he is said to have died. From my students, I infer Ramadan to be about as long, as Jesus Christ fasted, or about a “moon”.

Mark Steyn in currently in trouble with the Canadian (non) Authorities, called HRC’s, which is to say “Human Rights Commissions”, which are broadly anti-Western NGOs paid for by Canadian taxation, to indict people who say things that might offend PC-minorities. All he did is state that moslems in the west will outbreed ethnic “westerners”, and quite quickly. That seems to be a mathematical fact but he is under fire.

I find it very interesting that a “deep” European country’s “Catholics” (I thought they they thought that they owned the Citadel of Christendom – and Holland is “deep” European whereas we in Britain even are not) are defining deeply regular ( = ROOTED/RULED, or non-secular) aspects of “their” “religion” in terms of another, later one which has an arm which professes to need to exterminate all other religions on Earth.

Libertarians ought to be concerned here. Not because many libertarians are religious, and anyway I don’t think many Libertarians are Religious in the Formal Sense; old Chris Tame sometimes even described himself as “anti-religious”. I have heard him, and his first wife Judy, both saying that thing, and I was not offended and they did not expect me to be.  

I and other libertarians should be worried, because (religious and other) ideas which have underpinned the Enlightenment – basically that Man is rational and has sovereign thought and that some [religions] allow this - are being thrown away casually by people “in charge” who ought to know better, and who are “in charge” of temporal regions targeted by those who would not take a bright view of libertarian ideas, say about “gays” and “lesbians” for instance.

There must be several of these people in Holland for example. Indeed, I even came across a report in the “Sunday Sport”, “courtesy of a friend”, which stated that two “lesbians” “were beheaded in public in Saudi Arabia” on 1st February 2008, in Rhiyadh”, for having been “videoed on a mobile phone kissing each other” (I wonder who betrayed them? Hope it was not the ISP. Better find out which one if it was.)

The Shari’a Court admitted as admissible the video evidence, and “convicted” the two sisters (as they were, it seems.)  I had a better report, a few days ago, but I deleted the draft as it was too graphic. I think this is terrible if true – I don’t fancy lesbians at all, and being a rebid “hetero” muself, I think all that stuff is disgusting and I would not do it if you paid me (it’s almost as bad as smoking) but if they want to do what they say they want to do, then that is their affair and nobody else’s and certainly not mine.

I think that for most Libertarians, God is an “add-on”. As a scientist, for me He represents “order” or “Logos”, of which the Universe contains an enormously great deal, and it is very highly ordered and logical and beautiful, and it is not done by accident. (No I am NOT a creationist! God’s order is achieved, in the fullness of time, through His physical Laws which govern matter and energy. Darwin was perfectly correct.) Scientists and Lancashire mud-bumpkins like me believe in Him absolutely, and we seek to understand His Mind; that is our main job, and it is also why we hate the “political correctness” mob of killers, moochers and wastrels so much, for they obscure the big picture and delay Man in his quest.

Therefore, unhelpful interjections by temporarily-terrified people who ought to know better, are, er, rather unhelpful.

This also begs the question of whether I think the Judeo-Christian model of cosmology and hence therefore the philosophy of knowledge and Science and belief, is the correct one, or else any other competing one.

I bet you all 5p you can tell which one I go for. 

Natural England (a fascist pre-capitalist barbarian quango) gets money from the EU via DEFRA (department for Ending of Farming and Rural Affairs…not the sexy kind where you can f*** your near-neighbour’s wife and she won’t tell…)

The issue of Natural England and its possible/probable funding from the EU has been raised, and Steve Reed in Brussels turned up what he thinks is the appropriate budget source – LIFE+

Have a look at these 2 links and see if any of it gels with your own knowledge/experience in this area. John Kelly

Hi Bernard, “Natural England (NA)” [THIS IS ITS OWN WEB PAGE - ed.] the quango that wants to turn England into a saltmarsh has received £2.9 billion from Defra to assist this aim and in turn DEFRA got this sum from Europe.  NA make the claim to be independent of the government but this is obviously a false claim and NA seem to be the masters of the Environment Agency. According to the website, NA also gets £400,000 a year for its administration. If this rogue quango of environmental anoraks is not restrained, it will have a very counter productive effect to rising sea levels and sink the population ahead of any natural consequences. It seems to me we are all sleeping while this quango is given excessive powers to interfere on planning applications as a statutory consultee etc. with a very prejudicial interest and objectives. In short, this quango needs to be discredited for what it is doing at our expense and I am hoping your colleagues in UKIP here and abroad can provide some further evidence that supports my perception. See the weblink http://www.naturalengland.org.uk/press/releases2007/061207.htm

I feel I have to comment here. “Natural England” has been also doing stuff round here in the North West where we live. What it proposes is entirely destructive and you can get my views by looking at correspondence on this group,  eurorealist@yahoogroups.com for earlier today (11th Feb 2008.)

If DEFRA really stands for the “Department for Ending of Farming and Rural Affairs” (and I think it’s now called “DERA” which indicates that it thinks that “farming” has ended in the UK or at least England, which is about right) then all this makes sense.

If you are a socialist, and an intelligent one in a liberal Western nation which you hate for what it did for the rest of humanity (so these people could not become your supplicant-clients, for they were already freed by your enemy) then you probably have an Apple laptop (and you hate Bill Gates – OK OK it does not matter, your friends have got their teeth into his ankles for his money and he will now learn better at your hands, while he and his wife are thinking they are doing “big charity” – you will waste his money for him while the poor Africans wait and die.) 

Moreover, lots of you type on an apple, (you guys will end up being made to type outside in the cold, or in the alleyway next door, by us Intel/AMD-Windows-PC-ers….. like the poor smokers, eventually, were made to stand outside by your lot.) Just you try doing the mouse-thing in a hurricane in Lancashire in January, in an alleyway, on an apple. 

You think that “people ought to live off the land” (I have been told this by more than one of you)  and that “intensive farming” is “destroying the countryside”. You can say this and seem to get away with the falsehood, for you ……

(a) control the UK GCSE geography syllabus, and

(b) also you can afford to buy shitty, muddy “organic boxes” of mixed roots of indeterminate colour and dryness, covered in mud and rather shrivelled, delievered by a cheery lad in a van who knows the colour of your money and has an Apple-website like yours, or else you can get stuff flown in from Peru via Tesco (I LOVE TESCO! Strawberries in winter!) You even pretend you want to eat the stuff….and even feed it to your children (God help them) –  devotion to duty if ever there was.

(c) you have suborned all the “science” teachers under about age 42. (That was a clever move – I take my hat off to you. I now have to look to Chindia to save us from your efforts.)

If one wanted to abolish or emasculate an entity called “England”, then one plank of strategy would be to (a) remove its ability to control the extent of the coast line, and (b) to diminish the amount of productive farming that could go on anywhere. I rest my case.

Libertarians should be concerned, and oppose whatever DEFRA, or DERA indicates, since it seems designed to reduce this island to a state of food-dependency on some other outside agency – whether this be the EU, or “suppliers” (who can be leaned on). This island was the birthplace of liberalism – not a dirty word at all, just hijacked by the stalinists in the USA – and this supposed attack is just part of our punishment for doing what we did to free people. They want to demolish, or render unproductive, or at least inundate from the sea, our Land.

Perhpas they would just like to say they want to come and sow it with salt? Then, we will all know where we are.

Are Biofuels starving the world ….. We might be getting some slight movement here, in the sysiphean struggle to move the boulder.


David Davis (in the starving uncultivated DEFRA’d fields of England) 

“Are biofuels starving the world?” I do get a little encouragement sometimes, from the search-engine-strings that come in to us here. This blog takes a position on this debate, which is well known. The way to help people to the truth is to say that whereas we in the (still, even now) fortunate West will be able to afford to pay more for what food becomes available, poor starving Africans will not.

I find that you have to say that, and in just that way: otherwise, understanding is not communicated. This is because New-Labour-disorientated populations all think that all starving people are Africans. That in turn is because they are forced by the Government to do nothing except watch the Wireless Tele Vision. The Wireless Tele Vision people tell them to feel sorry for immobile African children with flies on their faces, and with fat tummies, that the UN is God, and that they should immediately get on their phones and give money to “Sir” “Bob Geldof” and other pop singers and global-mega-charities, right away, since only these semi-divine beings can help the poor fly-tormented children.

Item: if there is nothing to eat, then there is not only no food but no excreta or waste. So, where do all the flies in the BBC-News-tear-jerk-movies come from?  Fly populations as large as would support the local concentration of flies seen on these miserable pitiable humans, would not be sustainable in an environment consisting only of the humans themselves. There are only so many eggs, as a female insect, that you can lay and that will go to full-term in a living, moving child, however weak it may be. 

I only ask because I want to know.

Perhaps it’s down to the dead bodies, there because the “EU” cancelled its “peacekeeping mission” owing to the prospect of “conflict”?

Here’s a prayer to what a misguided but very good and nice man, whom I know and who lives near me, and for whom I have driven white vans, call “THE LEADERS”; Please, please, as you just now have the power to do it, stop this biofuels catastrophe now, while there is time.

Six reasons why you might choose to smoke


David Davis

Like my old friend Chris Tame, who abhorred smoking and thought it was a disgusting and filthy habit, but for some of his life worked for FOREST, and with deep sincerity about the necessary liberty of the individual to decide, I would not smoke even if you paid me. Well……..now you’re offering, of course every Man has his price, but in my case it would be quite high, say £100,000 a year tax-paid, for life. You’d have to be able to wave goodbuy to about 5 million of capital.

The current lack of defence of smokers in the UK, in the face of a staggeringly cruel and merciless onslaught by the Nazi Smoke-Police, has I think its roots in the former hubris with which smokers freely (it was of course allowed) polluted the air in offices, rooms, trains, pubs and the like, without (mostly) asking if they might be allowed. When, until the late 70s, they were a majority of adults,  I guess this was tough but inevitable.

The point is, because we all felt so put-upon by their habit and its nasty smells, when we couldn’t do a thing about it, we are failing to defend Continue reading
