Is Philip Green a crook?

I'm confused. Are Philip Green and his wife crooks, as some are suggesting, or merely obscenely greedy, utterly immoral, sociopathic bottom-feeding scum, as the Parliamentary report finds?

And are MPs so cross because they can't compel the couple, however odious they are, to recompense the BHS pensioners from the cash they creamed from the company?

I suppose humiliating them, after they've had their stationery printed, and making them change their passports early is some comfort.

Bayern gets its first self-detonating Jihadist

Brits must feel a sort of world weary sympathy with Bavarians today, as their first self-detonating Jihadist went off outside a bar. These miserable, joyless, Godless feckers of dreary Islamists will always try to target places where normal people enjoy themselves, laugh, love and share. Foreigners chopping eachother up on the streets with machetes are events with which we are also well-used, but new to Bavarians. But Bavaria has yet to experience a member of the German armed forces being slaughtered in public by machete - I'm sure it will come.

Whilst we are devoting time to friends, family and the joy of life, these heathen miserablists are crouched in their underpants before computer screens learning how to make bombs and kill people. 

Bavarians have also yet to expose their first gangs of sex-abusing Moslems raping and exploiting vulnerable German kiddies, but once they have got hold of one end of the chain and start hauling, they will find hundreds and hundreds of 'em. There's no end in sight in the UK yet of the queue of prosecutions of groups of vile Islamic sex fiends - every month sees another dozen banged up for a collective century. 

I do hope that whatever deluded fools in government imagined it was a good idea to allow these people to practice freely their own cultural values rather than having to integrate and being obliged to adopt ours are out at dinner in a smart restaurant when the next self-detonating Islamist strikes.

Who is Owen Smith?

Owen Smith is one of the new breed of Labour politicians who are utterly devoid of humour, personality, character, interest or individuality. It was thought in the last decade that only politicians so bland, so tasteless, so mediocre and so forgettable would have a chance of taking and holding the centre ground in a miracle process called 'triangulation'. The thinking has all been blown apart by UKIP and the referendum result, but the MPs remain.  

The new MPs don't actually have individual, personal life histories but share a common background with some variations. Here therefore is Smith's biography;

A tenner to get Blair in the dock

I'm holding on posting while events in Turkey continue to pan out. That even Con Coughlin (writing no doubt on behalf of MoD sources) can question Turkey's continued membership of NATO demonstrates that the obvious will eventually penetrate even the mental armour of the MoD mandarin mind. 

Meanwhile, with the price of a pint of Peroni and a glass of Prosecco in central London now £17, why not donate £10 to help get Blair in the dock? Legal action by fathers of Matthew Bacon and Tom Keys, killed in Iraq II. https://www.crowdjustice.co.uk/case/chilcot/

Erdogan's Turkey is not a friend; Putin's Russia is an ally.

Well, I hate to say I said so, but the overwhelming support of the mass of Turkish people for becoming an Islamic Republic confirms what I've long been saying - that instead of being a NATO ally, Turkey ought to be considered a potentially hostile neighbour. Not yet openly an enemy, but certainly a country with which Europe and NATO should no longer be sharing intelligence and co-operative military planning. 

The reason the dinosaurs are still so keen to keep Turkey on board as a NATO member is to counter Russia. Well, they really need to realise that Russia is not our enemy, and ought to be our ally against the Islamic Sultanates, Caliphates and Republics to our South and East. Putin has made the offer, which has been contemptuously rejected by the fools of the EU and NATO's deluded warmongers. Who now keep prodding and poking the bear, fearful of its teeth and claws but unable to resist baiting her. 

Russia has now turned to Asia for friends. A hugely wasted opportunity, a horrendous global error by the morons, cretins and mental dwarfs who drive Europe's foreign policy. If the US does go to war with China in the Pacific in the foreseeable future, it's not our fight. We should support Australia and New Zealand with whatever they decide to do, but let them lead. Our interest is in maintaining peace in Europe - and we need Russia on board as a neutral in any China - US conflict. 

In the past ten years, the blogosphere has outperformed governments at every turn on foreign policy matters. We have been right about the outcomes of every mistaken adventure, every poorly advised intervention, every lunatic policy misdirection. And we're right about this. 

Turkey is just the start. Let's begin by starting to make the right decisions.

Be careful what you wish for

Since we woke to the news of Nice, there have been consistent reports of demands in France for 'firm leadership'. And I've long been of the opinion that one simply can't argue against Orban's Fidesz party and its aims of 'family, work, health, order'. Who can campaign on a platform of 'isolation. joblessness, illness, chaos'? Marine le Pen can hope for another three major Islamist atrocities before the French elections next year, each one handing her another 5% of the nation's votes. And she promises to be very strong indeed against France's estimated 10% Moslem residents (though they don't know - the French don't count these things)

As much as I can read Orban's words here in comfort and freedom, I really wouldn't want him leading my country. For a start, bloggers who offer the slightest criticism face unjust discrimination; he is closing off the courts and the media to opposition access and free comment and gradually turning Hungary into a totalitarian State, albeit one without Moslems, mosques, terrorism and social parasitism. 

And as much as we may support the military faction in Turkey trying to halt the country's drift towards an Islamic Republic, to preserve it as a secular and liberal EU candidate nation, it seems the Turkish people by and large want to become an Islamist republic. How this squares with leggy Natashas on the beaches in tiny bikinis, cocktail bars and women's equality I don't know - but I'll support a democratic vote over a general's tanks any day, anywhere. 

You simply can't support the mechanisms of State repression against Moslems in France or in Britain without becoming subject to the same measures yourself. And knowing well the strongly-held and very divergent opinions held by readers of this blog, I'll bet that 85% of you (and me) would end up in an internment camp not long after they locked all the Islamists up. 

'Be careful what you wish for' has never been more true.

Religion of peace not responsible again - 80 dead

I guess it will be about another twenty minutes before an apologist goes into print reminding us that the latest Islamist atrocity in Nice has nothing to do with the religion of peace.

On another topic, on this day in 1966 British Rail lifted its ban (imposed at the behest of the Unions) on black people working at Euston Station. A previous recruitment campaign by London Transport that featured the slogan "We don't employ blacks" failed to fill the shortage of bus drivers and conductors with poor white folk, and they had to. 

Just a reminder why we needed the raft of anti-discrimination law in the 1970s - to deal with the discriminatory public sector.
