    Will Priti Useless Take It In The Eye? 


    It’s October 14th!

    ..

    The anniversary of the Battle of Hastings!

    In 1066, as in 2021, the Channel between Britannia’s shore and the Continent was the scene of an invasion.

    But although the leader of the defenders back then got an arrow in the eye and those defenders went down to defeat…

    .

    ..at least they put up a valiant fight.

    Today?

    It’s Hastings Day – Talking Points On An English Beach 


    It was on 14th October 1066 that a large number of men of military age crossed the Channel in fairly small boats, to disembark on an English beach.

    .

    .

    Deja vu?

    At least Duke William and his Norman soldiery were absolutely open about their intent to disdain the people of the country they landed in, and bend them to their will.

    The native population were equally forthright.

    It was a healthier age.

    .

    .

    Uninvited intruders were not welcome and should be driven back to whence they came, with whatever level of physical force that might be required.

    I’m just musing on what might have befallen any of King Alfred’s counsellors who told his thanes on the eve of battle that the Normans were ‘just like you and me.’

    Priti’s Girl Exalts Crimmigrants : ‘Just Like You And Me!’ 

    Or any Anglo-Saxon lawyers who demanded payment from the royal treasury to prepare and present arguments as to why it would be a much better course of action to welcome William’s men-at-arms…

    .

    ……..

    ….feed them with dishes to which they felt accustomed –  and entitled – and provide them with suitable accommodation, also paid for by levies imposed on the native population…

    .

    .

    ….and telling them they were free to come and go as they pleased, in England’s then much greener and more pleasant land.

    Would any such Anglo-Saxon attorneys pleading the invaders’ case have felt perhaps threatened?

    .

    Legal Aid abuse investigation –  c.11th Century

    .

    What would have become of them?

    ……

    PS – It’s only fair to remind ourselves that the brave defenders lost their battle.

    Yet at least they went down fighting!

      At least they went down fighting.
      That sums up the differences between those days and these days.
      The rotten media and sell-out politicians and the PC police make it hard to fight back but it’s still our duty.

    October 14th Election? One In The Eye For Whom? 


    Ignoring much of the asinine opinions expressed in the Guardian this week…

    ..and by God this week’s pages were positively infested by imbecilic ranters, like that ugly uppity Un-Australian Yapper, Yassim Abdel-Magied…

    .

    Far-Left’s Anti-Migrant Ranting Deafens Australia! 

    …who went nuts because another lefty luminary showed a tine wee bit of sense, viz.,

    ..the argument became a tirade. It became about the fact that a white man should be able to write the experience of a young Nigerian woman and if he sells millions and does a “decent” job — in the eyes of a white woman — he should not be questioned or pilloried in any way.

    All together, now, YAWN!

    ….

    It became about mocking those who ask people to seek permission to use their stories.  https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/sep/10/as-lionel-shriver-made-light-of-identity-i-had-no-choice-but-to-walk-out-on-her

    ..

    And Malignant Magied’s hogwash howl is only arguably the most deranged drivel the Guardian thinks worth inflicting on readers!

    Get this!

    Life began for me as a queer teenager amid the happy excesses of Great Yarmouth

    The editors apparently imagine that there are people remotely interested in reading about a sexual deviant’s adolescent antics!

    However….

    That, all that, above, is just a kindly mental-health warning – avoid the Guardian.

    It does stress you out after a very short perusal of its pearls of pinko wisdom.

    Today, it’s BORIS, or at least his alleged scheming, that I want, very briefly, to look at, and in particular…

    .

    Boris Johnson to seek 14 October election if rebels succeed, says government source – as it happened

    …I was fascinated by the announcement of the date of the next UK election.

    October 14th!

    As we noted two years ago…

    October 14th – Hastings Day, As England Faces Invasion 

    ——

    ——

    …that’s the anniversary of the Battle of Hastings!

    So can we read the runes of history to predict the outcome?

    Will Boris be blind-sided by Europhiliac renegades…

    …and the realm continue to be ruled from abroad?

    Be cool!

    History is a valuable tool for those Brits wishing to learn what mistakes should be avoided when fighting off enemies across the Channel.

    But anniversaries, unless forgotten by unwise husbands, are not indicators of what happens next!

      So far so good, Vanessa, as far as cleaning out lefies. That ultra liberal “Tory” Philip Lee MP has just crossed the floor of the Commons to join the Libdems.
      It is very frustrating to be an expat far away from this battle. I wish I could join all those ‘We Voted Leave’ demonstrators at Westminster.

          Ross, I have been glued to the news for hours. I had no intention of commenting till after the vote in the Commons but Salop has now drawn me in.
          Salop, it was very pertinent of you use those inverted commas around ‘Tory’ when writing about Lib Dem Lee.
          He did not even have the courage to attend the special meeting of the Bracknell Conservative Association when they debated their motion of No Confidence.
          The motion was passed and so Lee was due to be replaced.
          No wonder he has bolted for the nearest rat-hole.

    October 14th – Hastings Day, As England Faces Invasion 


    14th October, 1066

    =======

    In those days, England’s leader fought and died on the beach, determined to resist invaders from across the Channel, from Normandy, a place once again in the news this month.

    PICS: Migrants Open New Illegal Route to UK Via Normandy

    Deja vu?

    Nowadays, when the border is breached, Theresa May welcomes the alien invaders in Mama Stasi Merkel mode, NOT sending them back…

    =======================

    EXCLUSIVE: ‘I heard knocking – then I saw a face!’ 

    ….but au contraire, giving them free board and lodging indefinitely!

    Did she even authorise an appeal against this deranged ruling last year, when, despite the judge telling a Sudanese who violated UK frontiers –

    : “You not only put your own life in danger but, in my judgment, you put the lives and safety of others in danger…”

    ——-

    —-

    …the very same judge decreed the crimmigrant was free to remain in the UK.    http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/682451/Sudanese-man-who-walked-through-Channel-Tunnel-to-Britain-set-free-to-live-in-UK

    And native collaborators go unpunished..

    Crimmigration Collaboratrix Walks Free – Are ALL UK Judges Clueless? 

      – 

    …slap-on-the-wrist sentences for aiding and abetting illegal immigration.  

    May has not criticised such sell-out sentencing, never mind made moves to reform the law to get proper punishments imposed on people-smugglers.

    And I won’t even get started on the disgusting amnesty May and Rudd have this very month authorised for crimmigrants, expanding their original shameful sell-out.

     May Cops Out – A GrenfellCrimmigrant Amnesty!  )

    ==

    ========

    As if being impacted by something like the Grenfell Fire should absolve lawless aliens of illegal activity of any kind.

    As we noted previously, no doubt any residents of the affected property  wanted for rape, or murder, or other crimes, are also staying ‘under the radar,’ because if they surfaced they’d be arrested and prosecuted and face punishment for their criminal activity.

    I’m not suggesting May needs an arrow in the eye, as King Harold suffered on the Hastings battle-field…

    =====

    [[[

    But SURELY….

    SHE’S GOT TO GO!
