    Catching Up With Cop-Out Clanchy! 

    That sorry specimen Kate Clanchy, who cravenly let her book be censored to appease the woke-weasels…

    Total Sell-Out! Clanchy Crawls To Pinko Creeps! 

    …is now telling us how creepy are the dorks who call the shots at Picador publishers…

    ‘..dorks’ being my way of defining that publisher’s “focus group, ” which banned words such as “handicap” and “disfigured” from her work.

    These uptight mush-noggins are absurdly described as a team of experts…assembled by Picador to “detect and reform” the “problematic racism and ableism” in her work.



    Like, ‘experts’ on what?

    Uptight Asininity?

    If Picador paid the klutzes, they’d have been better off hiring the first half-dozen normal folk that walked past their office on a Monday morning.

    A shop assistant, a bus conductor, a bank clerk, a plumber?

    A panel comprising such people would know better what words are in use among the non-decadent elements of society.



    Hell, even a couple of homeless winos slouched in an adjacent door-way could have told them that ‘handicap’ and ‘disfigured’ are perfectly normal words used in the real world.

    But not in the Twilight Wokery Zone, clearly.

    No sympathy for Clancy, though.

    She should have self-published rather than let her book be censored.

      Are these ‘experts’ all hand-picked for leftwing woke opinions, or does Picador even try to balance its censorship racket?

    Media Bias – ‘The Local’ Versus France! 


    The burqini bans in around 30 towns in France have left spectators outraged, confused, angry, and disappointed. 
    Au contraire, mes amis.
    We’ve already reported ( as has The Local) that 64% of French people support the ban. From that, I’d guess that most angry, disappointed etc feelings are more likely to be a response to the Council of State’s suspension of the ban.
    But The Local, determined to disprove the poll, it seems, sent a reporter to the Paris ‘beaches’ by the Seine to carry out its own little survey – how little, we don’t know; they don’t tell us how many people they talked to.
    But somehow they refuted the national poll -hostility to the ban was a popular sentiment among those at the temporary beach – http://www.thelocal.fr/20160825/what-do-parisians-think-of-frances-burqini-bans
    Yet the interviewer had to record dissent too, including this from Besma, a banker, a Muslim woman, one of those who has actually shaken off alien culture.

    “My own mother wore a headscarf but she would have never considered a burqini or a burqa. I have read the Quran and it is written nowhere that women must cover themselves up in all black as if they are in mourning.”

     And a French man provided us with a useful modern history lesson. 
    Jean-Paul, a fast-food stand owner, said that the burqini represented a “regression in Islam –  If you look at pictures of women in Muslim countries such as Algeria from the 1960s, you see them wearing bikinis and swimsuits,” he said.
    Very true, and not just Algeria.
    We have covered ( uncovered?!) those halcyon days in previous posts.
    1960s Egypt Color
    And here below is a happy young lady in Iran, when that now wretched land was free.
    One wonders, sadly, where she is now? A granny, yes, perhaps, but looking at her grandchildren and mourning the freedom they have lost?
    Or worse, observing how they’ve been indoctrinated into the backward burkini mind-set?
    But the Parisian dissenters, it seems, were a minority among the dozen (?) or so The Local met. Impressionistic data, at best, or maybe Paris is as unrepresentative of France as London is of Britain. 

    Overall The Local ‘Paris poll’ seems to be an effort to echo the previous week’s piece…

    ‘Burqini bans will only divide France more’


    How true, those words spoken by the blonde lady in our oft-used picture!


    I had been planning to post last week but happily I held off, on how it beats me why The Local calls itself The Local – The Leftal might be better/

    It uses a prejudicial assertion as a headline to reflect its own slant towards alien intrusion into local life on France’s beaches. Sure, the quotation marks indicate it is a mere assertion, by one of the ‘experts’ the editors have clearly been trawling for. 

    But there’s no fair selection of ‘experts’ from both sides of the debate, no ‘experts’ at all from the patriot side, only the sort whom left-libs adore, a ‘sociologist and Islam expert,’ and a ‘sociologist and filmmaker.’





    Who the hell defines these sorts as ‘experts‘ at all?

    And are there REALLY no ‘experts’ to be found who might take the opposite view? 

    As yet another town in France moves to ban the burqini, experts argue that such decisions will actually worsen France’s relationship with Islam.
    On and on it goes, leftist hogwash on free-flow.
    The ‘film-maker‘ rants that the burkini bints will “become fed up with all the noise in the French news, the obsession with Islam in the French media.”
    More appropriate, surely, if they got fed up with the noise of Salafists spitting hate for all the French civic virtues. 
    Fathers and husbands, their private parts are YOUR responsibility
    More helpful, too, if they abandoned their obsession with alien shariah dress-codes and learned to live in France and look like Frenchwomen!
    BTW, I was once told to take my trousers off among a crowd of sunbathers because it was inappropriate to be so clothed on a public beach!
    That was in Tangier, in Muslim Morocco, by a gun-toting Muslim cop. I obliged. He moved on, checking that all those by the sea were in proper swimsuits. 
    Fortunately I had my swimmers on underneath, and had only just sat down, having carefully chosen the most pleasing area, that with as many bikini-clad forms as could be spotted.
    I fear Morocco has changed since those days.  

    Is Morocco Bound To Catch the Market Morons? 

    But today’s question must be – will The Local change?

    Change editors, change from a pro-crimmigrant apologist rag to the useful publication it could so easily be? ,

      A funny story, your adventure in Morocco, but this is not one of your better efforts, Ross. You use a scatter-gun approach, far too much a broad-brush and if I may say, a slap-dash, attack on what should be an easy target, the Islamists in France.
      Instead, you take aim at The Local.?
      I understand perfectly how much you dislike these ‘experts’ and I agree, they usually are know-nothings with an axe to grind, but if you look at The Local over a period of six months or a year, are there really that many examples of bias? ,
