    RIP Lee Kuan Yew – A ‘Communist?’ Why Defame a Dead Hero? 

    I enjoy Spiked! and often mine it for useful ideas. It is composed of individualists, many of whom have lefty backgrounds but have overcome that spiritual handicap and usually advance interesting arguments for freedom.

    But this week’s Spiked! goes a little too far in the iconoclastic spirit.

    Millions of Brits Denied Referendum Vote, Myriad Aliens Included! 

    If you’re one of the many Brits who have understandably retired to sunnier shores, you may well be excluded from voting in the referendum promised by David Cameron.


    EU - referendum vote


    According to the British Government electoral website, IF YOU HAVE LIVED OUTSIDE THE UK FOR 15 YEARS, YOU HAVE LOST YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE.

    But if you’re a Greek, a  Dane or a Maltese, or a citizen of any EUSSR member state who’s come to Britain in the past year or two, you are perfectly at liberty to register to take part in a decision which will decide the constitutional status of the realm for the foreseeable future.

    There is no conceivable justification for this.

    I append an extract from a site which focuses on this disgraceful disenfranchisement.


    A surprising statistic this 9%  perhaps, but consider the following, based on the UK’s Annual Population Survey estimates for the year 2013, published on 28 August 2014 by the Office for National Statistics:

    UK resident population – 62.6 million

    minus non-British UK residents – 4.9 million

    = Total number of British citizens in the UK – 57.7 million




    plus the British abroad – 5.6 million (IPPR estimates based on British passports issued to addresses abroad)

    = Total British citizens, resident in UK + abroad – 63.3 million

    The British abroad as a percentage of all British = 8.8%


    And is it really accidental that it disproportionately impacts Britons of middle-age or older, whom all surveys show are more likely to vote for deliverance from Brussels rule?

      Eligibility to vote in a referendum will be specified in the parliamentary Bill which authorises it. In the earlier Bill which failed to pass, the qualifications were as for a general election – British citizens and citizens of the Irish Republic plus Commonwealth citizens with the right of permanenent residence. Citizens of EU states are allowed to register but can only vote in elections for local councils and the EU parliament. But there is considerable doubt about the checks on eligibility for the register of electors.

      Very unwisely Mr Cameron allowed the Scottish Parliament to legislate for the referendum there and Mr Salmond extended the franchise to 16 year olds and EU citizens resident in Scotland, whilst excluding Scottish people resident elsewhere in the UK.

      The present system of universally available postal voting has been condemned in court as wide open to fraud. Most of the detected or suspected fraud has taken place in areas which could be described as culturally enriched.

        But the fact remains, my friend, that overseas Brits are denied any vote at all if they have been resident elsewhere for 15 years or more. I doubt they’ll relax that when and if the referendum is held.
        I think that is scandalous.

    Will Obama’s Flunkey Be Character Witness in Bergdahl Case?? 

    Bergdahl_fam How come the flea-bag beard – always an unhealthy sign!


    National Security Advisor Susan Rice said during an interview with ABC News that Bergdahl served with honor and distinction.




    The toe-rag Bergdahl was a handy excuse for Obama to unleash more jihadist vermin on the world.

    Last year President Obama held a ceremony in the Rose Garden with Bergdahl’s parents and touted the swap of Bergdahl as an important moment in U.S. history, arguing no American should be left behind on the battlefield.


    That’s AMERICANS, you Manchurian moron.

    Not Bergdahls. Your bimbo minion ain’t got the message?


    -‘Yeah, lies, babe. Like my college records, like Ayers’ spomsorship, like where the hell I was born –  easy!


    National Security Advisor Susan Rice said during an interview with ABC News that Bergdahl served with honor and distinction.

    What a moronic bint!

    Anti-UKIP Freaks Face Threats? Reaping What You Sow… 

    I’m sure most decent people in Britain shared the disgust I felt for the filthy freaks who barged into a pub where Nigel Farage was having lunch with his family.




    I made no comment at the time. No need!

    It goes without saying that most parents who enjoy a pub lunch with their kids – a normal, civilised activity in the UK, BTW, if you’re not familiar with the British way of life – would react strongly to having their school-age children terrorised by these rabid ‘scum’ – as Farage accurately described them. 


    red nazis in action


    They have allies among the degenerates in what passes for British journalism -

    I struggle to find anything good about being straight, white and British. Farage fracas: my day with the anti-Ukip cabaret he called ‘scum’    Guardian-23 Mar 2015

    What A



    But not all journos are sick swine of that ilk!

    If there are honourable, decent people in the media bothered to investigate the scum’s background, I strongly suspect they’ll find that at least the ring-leaders are ex-SWP, the red nazis of the Socialist Workers’ Party.  Much like the UAF hoodlum outfit whose violence we have all witnessed.





    That more or less defunct SWP marxist thug-gang was notorious in the 70s and 80s for its hateful and desperate efforts to intimidate students whose views they disliked.

    They were ardent enforcers for the NUS ‘No Platform’ policy which sought to silence opposition voices on university campuses.


    • UAF  idiot SWP


    So why on earth does the Guardian deem it a big story that the filthy morons are facing a backlash.

    Demonstrators who forced Nigel Farage to flee pub receive abusive messages by text and email as well as on Twitter and Facebook.
