  1. I hear the EU is now begging Member States to help fill the massive hole they have fraudulently created in their own corrupt budget This follows the announcement the EU will donate a staggering and unbelievable $15 billion to Ukraine to support the new government. Why don’t they just print it like they usually do, the euro will soon have the same value as the German Mark in 1945.
    In addition the Queen of Europe now wants the UK to teach/brainwash young tots as part of the national curriculum, compulsory EU studies to inform them of just how fantastic being a member of this great democratic union is.
    I bet Clegg cannot sleep with excitement, at what he must think is wonderful news. What a Pratt!!

    • Just as I was reading your comment, CS, the Memsahib put the news on and there was Gordon McRuin, large as life and twice as ugly, pacing the stage and dropping his jaw in that off-putting manner he has made his own and pontificating about something or other … and people were bloody clapping him. Actually pleased to see him and listen to his inane jabber. These are the silly buggers who – together with millions of their similarly intellectually gifted fellows – will let this once great nation slide ever deeper into the cesspit that is the EU. We’re outnumbered by them, I fear. The one consolation is that the whole shitty edifice will crash and burn one day; I just hope I am here to see it .. and if there is a sideshow where the leaders are led forth in irons and strung up, then just for once I will put aside my innate delicate sensitivities, break open a bottle of Pusser’s best and watch the proceedings with much relish.

      • It is always difficult to have any comments against the EUSSR posted in the media, but there is a way to get the message across nationally. The European elections are due shortly and this gives the opportunity for anti EU voters to show their political parties how they feel. Irrespective of whether they would normally vote, in national elections, for a Tory, Labour, Bus Pass Elvis, or Lib dem candidate, on this one occasion, put a cross against the UKIP candidate and just sit back and watch the change in national parties policies. It may even bring that referendum closer.

  2. Anybody notice that the headline in the Telegraph today is “It’s Iranians wot did it” (Lockerbie) and of course aided and abetted by the Syrians.
    Tomorrow it will probably be “911 woz done by the Ukrainian Ruskies”. Then on thursday it’ll be “China responsible for the London Underground bombs”.
    In the summer we will probably have our new best friend the leader of North Korea staying with Her Madge” at Windsor Castle.
    In France we always have the celebrations (11 Nov) of how WW I and II were won by the French and Germans against the USA and Britain (in actual fact is was the banks that won twice). And so it goes on and on and on and …………….. ‘Propaganda and History’ two of the World’s greatest lies.

    The sad thing is millions of sheep believe this crap.

  3. Oi Dave,

    How about posting a special tribute to Stephen Lawrence? Name ring a bell? No? Thought not! Permit me to explain…
    Stephen was the innocent black youth who was viciously stabbed to death by a group of several hundred white racist nazi thugs and UKIP supporters back in 1994. The original crime, the aftermath and the consequences for race relations have been systematically covered up ever since by the mainstream media – as if the dastardly crime never even happened!
    It therefore falls to us, the independent media within the blogosphere, to highlight this monstrous injustice that has for 20 years now, been totally obliterated from the public consciousness. It’s been a disgraceful cover-up and we must do something to remedy this outrage. We cannot continue to turn a blind eye to the matter, or the poor cunt and his family will never get justice. Perhaps you can work something into your regular Friday column to highlight the issue?
    Cheers M8, E.

    • Wasn’t Lawrence played by Peter O’Toole?

  4. This is good stuff. The topics are jumping about like grasshoppers on a barbecue.
    How about the relatives of the Malaysian ‘disappeared’ aircraft. Ringing their mobile phones and having their calls hang-up.
    My ‘outsider’ bet is the aircraft never took-off. Someone or some group were so important that the rest of the passenger will leave a hanger somewhere and quietly disappear. Just like 911.
    On the other hand if the wreckage is found… all bets are off. Of course finding wreckage after a plane crashes into the Twin towers was very difficult. The modern aircraft these days is built to disappear instantly without trace as soon as it encounters a problem. Also the black-box is now made out of paper-mache.

  5. THIS IS JUST TO GOOD TO MISS.
    If you really don’t want to be a sheep and know what’s going on.

    • Yes, they’re flat bust, but when is the secondary market for their poxy IOUs ever going to reflect that? Yields on US Treasuries have risen substantially (from virtually fuck-all) over the last year or so, but investors are still buying ‘em and seem content to receive laughably low rates of return in exchange for the – let’s be honest – insane downside risk. How many more QE operations will they get away with before people wake up? I just don’t geddit. :-/
      BTW, is there any chance you could post shorter vids in future? Too long for YT at least to watch, I’m afraid. Some of us have to work, you know!

    • Oh bollocks, I’ve watched it all the way through now, anyway.
      A bit of advice for others thinking about devoting time to this video: skip the first half unless you’re fascinated with the ongoing machinations in Ukraine. The really interesting bits wrt ecomonic collapse and whatnot come after the halfway mark. Enjoy. If you have the time.

      • Wiggy, something I’ve got into the habit of doing is downloading this sort of stuff from Youtube then converting the file to mp3 to listen to later on while I’m driving. Don’t know if that suggestion is of any use to you …?

        • Could be. If GS started posting two-and-a-half minute vids, ‘cos that’s how long it takes me to drive to the pub and that’s about all the driving I do.

          • Ah – I take your point :)

            Sometimes my day starts with a 100 mile drive and having an educational track or twain to listen to on the way is a damned sight better than listening to the usual fuckwits on the radio. If I get bored with the earnest and impassioned monologue I just fast forward to a bit of Beethoven or the Cranberries or something … what an education this lad is having :)

            • Great way to spend the time, Mr. C! As you say far better than listening to some brain dead DJ and his choice of shitty modern songs. I do the same on plane trips and whatnot when it’s actually worth the bother ‘cos the flight is long enough to make the slight extra effort worthwhile.

  6. Don’t worry chaps if time is short and there’s too much to do before ambling down to the pub.

    Here is really heart warming news that will make you be proud to be British and help you sleep soundly in bed tonight:-

    Prime Minister David Cameron pledged to stand by Israel “every step of the way” during a speech to that country’s parliament.
    In his Knesset speech, Mr Cameron noted his Jewish roots.
    “Let me make it clear, with me you have a British prime minister whose belief in Israel is unbreakable and whose commitment to Israel’s security is rock solid,” Mr Cameron said.
    Mr Cameron said Britain “fully supports the great work” of US Secretary of State John Kerry. ( He’s doing a great job in the Ukraine)

    And finally Wiggy your ‘cup will runeth over’ with joy to know that:-
    David Cameron yesterday vowed to defend the religious slaughter of animals in Britain.

    • Thank you, George, that is wonderful news indeed.
      Tony Benn snuffed it last night, I gather. I always thought he was a nutter and if his policies would have been adopted it would have wrecked the country in a matter of months. But I contrast Benn with the likes of Cameron and Blair and I think we all know that although Benn was bonkers, he was 100% genuine and up-front about his beliefs and wasn’t about to shrink from trying to sell them to the public. What you saw with Benn was what you got: honesty.
      I don’t think I need point out how different he was in that respect from shills like Blair/Cameron ‘cos it speaks amply for itself: a pair of two-faced lying cunts who said one thing to get elected and did the total opposite when in power.
      RIP, Tony Benn. Respect!

      • Benn himself once observed that, in his view at least, there are two types of politician – signposts and weather vanes. There is much in that when you think on it … and just how many fucking weather vanes we have at the moment, twitching and farting with every slight variation of wind direction.

        Enoch Powell counted Benn as one of his friends, that’s good enough for me. Mad as a bloody hatter, but charming, incorruptible and possessed of very good manners. Can’t ask for a lot more than that …

  7. Dave,
    Whilst attempting to contact you via the contact page, I noticed a desperate plea from the Grumpy Old Git for a password reset. If you’re unaware of this, suggest you take a butcher’s and perhaps assist our distressed colleague.
    cheers,
    E. ;-)
