    Le Carre Condescends To Accept Pinko Prize!.

    While a lot of the actors and actresses who think their opinions about domestic and international politics are not even very impressive in their show-biz roles…

    Screen Actors Guild – The Talking Brain-Dead? 


    ….it’s a pity that John Le Carre, whose books are always very readable, has far-left, Europhiliac attitudes that are inevitably unacceptable to patriots…


    The prize ceremony will take place at the Stockholm Concert Hall on January 30, 2020.

    Le Carre spoke of the behaviour of Donald Trump and others as “absolutely comparable” to the rise of fascism in the 1930s. “It’s contagious, it’s infectious. Fascism is up and running in Poland and Hungary…”


    …and if what the Guardian says about ‘Agent Running in the Field, his most recent book – which he has hinted will be his last – 



    – depicts collusion between Donald Trump’s US and the British security services with the aim of undermining the European Union…

    ….then I will wait till it reaches Jakarta’s second-hand book-stores and then read it carefully…




    …and if he depicts ‘the undermining of the European Union’ as anything other than an ADMIRABLE objective, I will review it less enthusiastically than I otherwise might.

    To me, ‘Tinker Tailor, Soldier, Spy’ and ‘The Spy Who Came In From The Cold’ were simply enjoyable fiction, yet some people have to drag  politics even into light reading, people like the leftists who tomorrow are giving him that ‘Olaf Palme Prize,’ who claim Le Carre…

    …is constantly urging us to discuss the cynical power games of the major powers…the tension in the Middle East and the alarming rise of fascism and xenophobia in Europe and the US,” the organisers said…

    No doubt Le Carre’s prejudices do stray into his spy stories, but that’s true of many authors.

    I recall years ago, when Stephen King wrote ripping yarns…


    The greatest POTUS till Trump? Yet Stephen King just had to slur his fans!


    …he gratuitously mentioned how a particularly unpleasant character had a Reagan bumper-sticker on his pick-up truck – a childishly offensive insertion indeed!

    But the perceptive reader soon screens out such gunk and gets on with the ripping yarn, even though Le Carre’s tales may lack any resemblance to what really goes on.

    He was only in the service for three years, and something must have happened to him while he was there to breed this cynicism. .https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7518851/Real-life-007s-stand-reading-legendary-spy-author-John-le-Carr-s-books-says-former-MI6-boss.html

    Though don’t forget, Le Carre’s books are just fiction and should not be taken seriously, any more than his lefty bluster should.

    As to the prize – which is NOT for his literary skill but for his politics- it has in the past gone to a few good people, like Vaclav Havel, but frankly I would be minded to refuse an award that was once handed to a rat-bag leftist leaker like Daniel Ellsberg!

    Another previous recipient was that Italian far-left hack we wrote about last year, Roberto Saviano, whose detestation of democratic principles….

    Italy’s Elected Government ‘Can’t Be Allowed To Survive!’ 

    …we should all deplore!

    .Unfortunately, Le Carre, who is VERY rich, is not going to keep the substantial prize-money.

    Le Carré said he would donate the winnings to the international humanitarian NGO Médecins Sans Frontières.  https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/jan/10/john-le-carre-wins-100000-prize-for-contribution-to-democracy

    We know all about MSF and its ‘humanitarianism…’


    The MV Aquarius is a former German coast-guard and fishery protection vessel (then named Meerkatze, 1977) operated since February 2016 by SOS Méditerranée and Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)

    NGO Imports Murderous Savages – Impound Aquarius

    …and are not surprised a leftist like Le Carre would lavish largesse on such an ‘NGO!’

    Still, we need to ask if the very rich writer prefers to help the crimmigrants from a safe distance only, or if he has accommodated deserving characters like these…

    …under his own roof!?!

    He has a Facebook page – go there and ask him!
