      Most western governments are in thrall to net zero and climate change and are quite happy to to use the war as a way to reset economies….shut down industry, stop ‘consumerism’, stop capitalism , stop meat eating and use of fossil fuels and travel.

      An irony that theBerlin Wall came down and the Right is now in Russia whilst the marxist zealots are now here in control.

      It is proof that many people who claim to be trans are in fact suffering from mental health problems….shame so many in authority encourage their illness and promote it to children as normal, rather than unhealthy, behaviour.

    Justin Webb tells us that the Tories are stealing Labour’s policies and are now big interventionists[never mind the cost of fuel crisis which dictates that].


    Minutes later Mishal Husain is berating the Tories for taking from the poor to give to the rich.

    er….so…that’s what Labour policies would do then?

    Tax cuts are bad as is the decision not to raise NI….all bad….just giving money to the rich….oh…and borrowing is bad…even in a crisis….but wasn’t it good as a day to day policy previously as said by the BBC…remember Plan B that the fragrant Stephanie Flanders pushed so hard?

    Cherry Valentine: Drag Race UK star George Ward dies

    This bizarre, woke-to-the-limit article shows just what a farce the Left have created.

    The main article refers to the deceased as ‘he’ then the BBC’s special ‘LGBT and identity correspondent’ refers to it as she !. I had to read it twice because once again, I thought they were talking about 2 different people. These variable pronouns are utter stupidity.

    I looked around the net for the cause of death which isn’t specified and found the same mish-mash of ‘he’ and she’ along with comments from people who live in a completely different, child-like world to the rest of us.

    I expect it’s either drugs or suicide. Same as most of the luvvies who pass away young. I would say that many of these people have some kind of abnormality in the brain which makes them unable to cope with real life – but I won’t as I now live in world policed by fascists like maxi. Only their ‘truth’ is allowed.

      Theresa May on immigration … from ‘hard’ line to ‘pink no line’ …

      2012 … “Two and a half years ago, the coalition government was formed, and we made a clear promise to the British public. After thirteen years of uncontrolled mass immigration, this government would reduce and control immigration.” – Theresa May 2012

      2015 … “Because when immigration is too high (no figure given), when the pace of change is too fast, it’s impossible to build a cohesive society.” – Theresa May 2015

      2018 … “Over the years, overall, immigration has been good for the UK. It has brought people with different backgrounds, different outlooks here to the UK,” – Theresa May 2018

      Channel arrivals this year (so far) of mainly, “fit young, military age men” equal to thirty-seven percent of our standing Army right now.

      With continuing Government indolence, next year the numbers will probably equal the Army’s total. Invasion done and dusted. No doubt the AK47’s and ammo is arriving by some other means compliments of the Albanians.

      No cause for alarm.

        Here’s a thought, most illegal young makes are Muslin, a lot of Ukrainian is also Muslim so why not just draft them straight into Ukrainian battalions, that way they would have both job and a cause and similar compatriots they could support.

        The RAF could quickly airlift them to Ukraine to start basic training.

    A Point of View: Why people shouldn’t feel the need to censor themselves
    8 November 2015


    Amusing though this is, you have to be careful not to laugh at it, at least if you are a professor who has not got tenure. Those who wish to maintain the student mind in a condition of coddled vulnerability, unhardened by opposition and unpractised in argument, now police the campus, with the result that these places which should have been the last bastion of reason in a muddled world, are instead the places where all the muddles come home for nourishment. The example vividly illustrates the way in which the attacks on free speech can go so far as to close off the route to knowledge. And in the end that is why we should value this freedom, and why John Stuart Mill was so right to defend it – as fundamental to a free society – without it we will never really know what we think.

      Shhh …. Ahmadis suffer vicious persecution around the world. The main source of fuel for that persecution is in Pakistan, but what happens in Pakistan does not stay in Pakistan.

      I know that from my experience in the Yorkshire market town of Batley. In August 1985, when I was 11 years old, my parents organised an inter-faith meeting in the town hall. It was interrupted and disturbed when, according to West Yorkshire police, more than 1,000 extremists, led by Pakistani hate preachers funded by the Pakistani state, were bused in from around the country. The mob brutally attacked my English mother and my father, a dermatologist; my eldest brother and I; and a Welsh Ahmadi schoolteacher who was with us. My first cousin, a GP, was by chance driving through the market town that day. He saw the mob and saw his family and friends being attacked, so he stopped. He was recognised, pulled from his vehicle and savagely beaten up.

    I posted a comment replying to someone on the Daily Mail regarding the new leader in Italy which they describe as the first far right leader since Mussolini.

    I wrote correcting them that Mussolini was not far Right but far Left and as such the DM was incorrect, giving the historical facts.

    Within less than 60 seconds the post had been taken down ‘Due to the number of complaints received’. If was reinstated very shortly afterwards, but it just goes to prove the Left are very sensitive about the truth coming out about their past and there are either bots scanning to complain or there are a lot of activists monitoring these comment boards.


    • Doublethinker says:

      Fascism was a development of communism/ socialism and envisioned the nation state and all those of that nationality as the beneficiaries of the one party state it sought to create. Communism was internationalist in that it regarded the class struggle as existing across national boundaries, ‘Workers of the World Unite ‘ and all that stuff.
      Both ‘isms’ could only flourish in one party states and were ruthless in crushing all opposition. To the ordinary person living under either of the ‘isms’ must have been much the same, keep your head down, don’t complain , look the other way when you have to , clap and cheer when required and with luck they will leave you alone.

    Disgraced former Labour peer Lord Ahmed of Rotherham has been jailed for five and a half years for sexually abusing two children in the 1970s.

    He was found guilty in January of a serious sexual assault against a boy and the attempted rape of a young girl.

    The abuse happened in Rotherham when he was a teenager, Sheffield Crown Court heard.

    Passing sentence, Mr Justice Lavender said his actions had had “profound and lifelong effects” on the victims.

    The court heard Lord Ahmed, who was tried under his birth name Nazir Ahmed, attempted to rape the girl twice in the early 1970s, when he was aged 16 or 17 but she was much younger.

    The attack on the boy, who was aged under 11 at the time, also happened during the same period.



    In early February, Lord Ahmed of Rotherham was sentenced to five and a half years in prison after being convicted of sexually assaulting two children in the 1970s, offences which included buggery and attempted rape.

    Lord Ahmed was a member of the House of Lords from 1998 to 2020 and resigned from this position following accusations that he had used his position of authority to sexually assault vulnerable women who had come to him seeking help.

    However, despite Lord Ahmed’s conviction, the House of Lords has confirmed that he will not lose his title as a Lord (even though he cannot vote in the House of Lords).

    • Jeff says:

      I think it’s rather interesting that the Pakistani serial child rapist, Lord Ahmed, is given the same sentence as a bloke who was rude about the BBC.

      So, there we have it; buggering children and raping vulnerable women is treated with as much seriousness as nasty remarks made about about Jeremy Vine.

      Be careful out there folks.

      I think they’re trying to tell us something…

      Thanks to John Derbyshire via VDare I came across the video below of another favorite pundit of mine, Mark Steyn. In the video Steyn notes the childlessness of most of the leaders of the EU’s founding member states, and thus their utter fecklessness towards the demographic tsunami facing Europe from Africa.

      I agree with both Sailer and Steyn that this is “the world’s most important graph”, because of course the African population explosion won’t be contained within the continent. As Steyn notes, Western medical advances have made African births more viable than ever, creating tremendous population growth in countries without the infrastructure or resources to accomodate it.

    The lineage of the name Leicester begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived in Leicester, in Leicestershire. Leicester is the capital of the county and its name is derived from the Old English element ceaster, which meant “Roman town.”


    Ongoing clashes between Muslims and Hindus threaten to “spread all over Britain”, faith leaders have warned, after 100 protesters descended on a Hindu temple.

    A crowd of Muslim demonstrators reportedly threw fireworks and missiles in the direction of police in the industrial town of Smethwick on Tuesday night as the disorder seen in Leicester over the weekend appeared to spread across the Midlands.

    Video footage showed the masked and hooded men shouting “Allahu akbar”, with dozens of officers deployed to the area in riot gear in response. No injuries were reported and an 18-year-old has since been arrested on suspicion of possessing a knife.

    After India, Nepal and Thailand banned surrogacy, Ukraine soaks up demand. But women on both sides report exploitation.

    BioTexCom, Ukraine’s most popular surrogacy company, offered her $11,000 for one pregnancy and a $250 monthly stipend – a sum more than three times the average yearly salary in Ukraine of approximately $3,000.
