Chaos in Clapham is Down to Weak Leadership and Activist Martyrs

leave a comment »

All the weeping and wailing about these lawbreakers who were recklessly endangering the health of the people of Clapham is outrageous. I don’t give a damn what gender or colour they were and it’s clear to me that at least some of those arrested were ‘activists’ who went there with the intention of martyrdom and getting some big newspaper headlines. They’ve succeeded and the pathetic response of our political leaders is just more of the same weakness and incompetence that is becoming the norm.

As for the sycophantic, hypocritical media, the Twitterati and the dozy ‘wokesters’, they are beneath contempt and it’s time people got some backbone. None of this does anything at all to deal with street violence or the pandemic.

Having said that, the inconsistency of policing and allowing some events such as football celebrations to go ahead with minimal policing is a huge problem. The police should have co-operated with the group that wanted to organise a socially-distanced, phased attendance vigil.  That is the responsibility of senior officers. As for the ‘poor bloody infantry’, who had to deal with the mob, inflamed by agitators and activists, as usual they get undeserved blame.

WWIII against COVID19. The EU against the People of Europe

leave a comment »

 
In WWII, Britain’s single-handed efforts, later assisted by America and Russia, saved the people of Europe from the Nazis. Today, another dark shadow lies across Europe. A sinister force, another authoritarian autocracy, has infiltrated Germany and France and is trying to dominate the entire continent, using a pandemic to pursuse its aims of total domination.
 
Once again, Britain has escaped by the skin of its teeth and using its legendary science and innovation expertise has developed the ultimate vaccine to defeat the virus. The EU advances its new blitzkrieg, trying to seize control of all vaccines, irrespective of ethics, morality and contracts.
 
So the people of Europe rely on Britain for deliverance from their nemesis. We are ready, once more, in the name of freedom, to come to their rescue.
 
I admit, my tongue is slightly in the vicinity of my cheek but the idea of Ursula von der Leyen ranting hysterically because her generals have totally screwed up their supply chain is pretty close.

If this was the Battle of Britain, the BBC would be the Nazi’s Best Weapon

Don’t watch the catastrophe news.

We know how serious this is. We’ve heard the same answers to the same questions repeated over and over again on all channels. Special reports from intensive care units are unbearable once you’ve seen them a dozen times.  Its almost like glorifcation of the suffering. Would such constant, unremmitting catastrophising have given us the backbone to get through the Blitz?

For all the blathering about ‘mental health’, nothing could be worse than the neverending repetition of suffering from the news channels. Not the way to develop the strength and perseverance we need.

Journalism pretends to high ideals but again and again it lets us down with its self-serving exploitation of news.  We need information, truth, analysis, insight. What we do not need is hour after hour of pandemic porn.
