Jack Jones did more damage to Britain than most in a long life

So farewell then, Jack Jones, aged 96. I think it’s fair to say that Jones did relatively little damage to Britain and his fellow countrymen in the last third of his life. But boy, did he create mayhem in the middle bit. Arrogant and self-righteous, this leftie-fascist led the union movement when it was at […]

France’s Sarkozy speaks for Britain too in his E.U. denial to Turkey

Thank you President Nicholas Sarkozy. You alone among Western leaders have had the courage to face the facts about Turkey, and say, “No”, to membership of the European Union. Free trade? Sure. Help and advice to develop Turkey’s economy? No problem. Political union? Never. U.S. President Barack Obama thinks the European Union should admit Turkey. […]

BBC G20 reporting left impression Brown had triumphed; reverse is the truth

I’m never sure with the BBC. Is it biased, or incompetent, or both? Watching BBCTV’s NewsNight last night, and listening to BBC Radio 4 Today’s reporting on the outcome of the G20, were they being relentlessly wrong, or relentlessly corrupt? I can’t make up my mind. Both, is the probable answer. NewsNight led its examination […]

U.K. media ignores Hannan’s Brown critique; shamed by U.S. cover

The British media finally, begrudgingly, gave some publicity to Conservative MEP Dan Hannan’s marvellous peroration to Prime Minister Gordon Brown from the floor of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France. Watching the hated, useless, arrogant bully Brown squirm and try to deflect the attack using his twisted Aw Shucks smile was beautiful to behold – […]

Labour makes hard work of everything, as well as disguising the truth

Top marks to Sunday Telegraph columnist Melissa Kite for her splendid idea about why the Labour party calls itself er, the Labour Party. I’d always thought that “Labour” was meant to distance the party from its true Communist/Socialist/Marxist/Fascist underpinnings. We all know that indeed this is whence Labour’s brothers and commissars began and continue their […]

Free speech, if it means anything, applies to extremist Muslims too

I heard a so-called moderate Muslim leader on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme this week saying that because Briton was a country which guaranteed free speech, it was OK that those alien creatures spat abuse and hatred at our troops earlier this week. He does have a point. Free speech, if it means anything at […]

Latest BBC climate scare story will be wrong, and go uncorrected

Tory Evasion On Wilders Case Shows Cameroon Superficiality

Justine Greening’s hand-wringing reply on BBC TV’s Question Time to the question about Geert Wilders’ visit, and Chris Grayling’s earlier statement, (if Wilders might transgress laws, we support the government action; followed by the pathetic whine about the government is inconsistent) shows why traditional Tories like me will never vote for this superficial, opportunistic, Cameron-led […]

U.K. Ban On Dutch Politician Undermines Freedom Of Speech

   It’s hard to know which is the most objectionable. Is it the British government’s craven cowardice in banning Dutch MP Geert Wilders from entering this cradle of democracy for fear he may offend? Or is it the British government’s gross, head-bangingly crass stupidity in banning a minor politician who would have made a speech […]

Hamas Killers Sacrifice Palestinians For Their Sick Cause

Watching the childish, petulant, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan‘s antics while sharing a stage with Israeli President Shimon Peres at the Davos summit served as another reminder of how the reality of Hamas gets lost in the political debate. Hamas is an extreme, bloodthirsty group of Muslim maniacs who love death the way we […]
