    Reasons To Be Careful – Beware Of Boris! 


    Well, well..

    oooo

    Johnson claimed that once Britain had left the EU he would focus on pursuing, “modern, progressive conservatism”, which he called a “winning formula…”

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/jun/14/boris-johnson-pledges-to-drop-backstop-in-orderly-brexit-plan

    I’ve often had a grumble about the way conservatives let the Left get away with appropriating the word ‘progressive.’

    Now I ask if BoJo was using it in its compromised sense, meaning all the slimy ‘liberal’ stuff that ‘social justice warriors’ love to wallow in..

    ooo


    …or did he simply mean he wanted to pursue real progress, for example – implementation of direct democracy, citizens’ initiatives, which would soon see terrorists strung up or shot…

    …and thugs flogged, fake ‘refugees’ slung out…things that honest decent Brits want done, to make Britain a land once more worth living in.

    I fear the latter interpretation of his words would be hugely over-optimistic.

    My scepticism about Boris Johnson is not something unique to me –

    As London mayor, he offered a more internationalist and pro-immigration posture than many in the pro-Brexit camp. https://www.politico.eu/article/eu-brussels-blocks-out-boris-johnson-tory-leadership-uk-brexit-bluster/

    – nor is it anything new to me.

    Frankly, no Tory leader has been trustworthy from a conservative point of view since The Iron Lady.

    She made mistakes, some very serious, as on Rhodesia and on Ulster, but those were occasions when she let her own sound instincts be circumvented by rats in the bureaucratic attic.

    Those who came after had few if any sound instincts.

    Cameron was the most ruinous in his betrayals…

    He u-turned on the perversion issue and he promised a referendum on the ‘European Project’ in 2005…

    …a promise he gaily broke!

    …but can a politician be said to betray principles he never held?

    With Johnson, we may be hearing a lot in the days ahead, some of which might make us think he’s not such a bad chap.

    Writing for The Spectator in 2000, Johnson attacked the then Labour government for ‘encouraging the teaching of homosexuality in schools.’

    In another piece for the Telegraph this time, in 1998 he lamented Peter Mandelson who had just resigned from Labour, which he felt would have led to an outpouring of emotion from ‘tank-topped bum boys in Ministry of Sound. 

    He wrote:

    Weep, o ye shirt makers of Jermyn Street, ye Cool Britannia tailors and whatever exists of human finer feeling. In the Ministry of Sound, the tank-topped bum boys blub into their Pils   https://www.indy100.com/article/boris-johnson-tory-leadership-campaign-brexit-racism-islamophobia-8953576…

    That last bit of doggerel is actually very funny, but this is the same man who not only fell head over heels for the gaystapo agenda…

    .

    …..but stomped the basic principle of fair play by refusing cured aberrants the same right to advertise on London Transport that he’d freely bestown on the aberrants averse to being cured.

    Again, he won wide applause from civilised British people, a few months ago, when he called out the barbarous primitives who affront normal human beings by prowling city streets in offensive head-shrouds.

    .

    burqa

    …..

    But amid all the shrilling from the pinko creeps in the media and the left-liberal political class, a lot of applauders failed to notice that he had failed to demand that the UK follow sensible examples in Denmark and France and ban the backward garb.

    Worse, he appeared to join his fellow-candidates for the Tory leadership in their collective grovel to the Home Secretary’s ridiculous call for an investigation into ‘Islamophobis!’  

    All that’s needed to quell any unreasonable suspicion of Muslims is that all of their representatives in Britain issue a public denunciation of the pig-ignoramuses who call for harassment or worse of Muslims who convert to other creeds or no creed…

    ..a total condemnation of polygamy in any circumstances, a loud assertion that blasphemy is punishable by God and not Man, and that sex discrimination in matters of inheritance is an archaic affront to civilised values.

    AND, most important, that loyalty to Queen and Country ALWAYS takes priority over sectarian solidarity.

    That’s how every aspiring PM should have responded to Javid’s outburst.

    oooooo

    However, back to Mr. Johnson, whose best immediate course of action would be to dump that blonde bit he’s (at least till this weekend) been shacked up with!

    Get a brunette, Boris!

    .

    I say that not because she seems annoyingly raucous but because she reportedly holds appallingly left-liberal views. Since he holds no fixed views on much of anything, while he’s involved with her he is susceptible to her influence.

    If Bojo wins the Tory leadership, as he probably will, his previous form strongly suggests he will betray Brexit as brazenly as T. May did.

    Alas, knowing the grass-roots Tories very well, having once toiled amongst them, I have to say that their capacity for self-delusion is only matched by the sycophancy they instantly display when in proximity to party ‘grandees.’

    dignif

    This was never more obvious than this weekend, when he cravenly refused to answer all questions about the row with Blondie.

    The assembled Tories sounded like a herd of lowing cattle, with their ‘heah-heah’ mooing, approving his cower-conduct.

    .

    When the betrayal happens, they will bleat sheepishly for minutes and minutes, then get back into cap-doffing mode, sharpish.

    Farage is imperfect, but his Brexit Party is the only practical option for Brits who want to regain their independence.

      I know you would be even more reluctant to see Hunt win, as would I, but your warning against Johnson is well-timed and I could not agree more with your comments on the Tory sheep.
      To know them is to loathe them. I had to work with them for years, hoping they might be improvable.
      I was mistaken. They are beneath contempt.

      So much of what you say is true but I think we have to give him his shot at Brexit.
      He has an ego the size of an ice-berg which may propel him into creating a legacy and he also must fear Farage.

      I do recognise your farm-animal description of the Tory constituency ‘activists’ though I prefer to picture them as poodles or chihuahas, lap-dogs who love to have their ears scratched by their masters.

      I got to the stage where I could hardly bear to be around when the MP came calling on his pets.
      If the MP had a minister with him, it was sickening to watch.

      I know you live in Indonesia so you must like brunettes, but I am not worried about his blonde. He goes through girl-friends like I go through gin and tonics at a barbeque…
      I’d better not say more.

      I like your remarks sbout Javid’s little stunt when he rushed the others into promising an Islamophobia Investigation.’
      He handed them a poisoned chalice and they grabbed it without thinking twice.
      Because everyone is talking only about Brexit, the promised witch-hunt has been almost over-looked but it will come back to haunt them all.
      The trouble-makers pushing for it have made no distinction at all between inciting violence against Muslim people and telling them that the many aspects of their religion like those you list are not acceptable in Britain or any Western country.

      I thought you might not have kept up with the Tory leadership campaign, so hope the news links I’m including are useful.
      It’s just like tweedle-dum and tweedle-dee. Neither is conservative, not in any serious way.
      Thank God we have the Brexit Party to vote for.

      Did you read what Johnson said this week, apropos of negotiating with the EUSSR?

      “We will make it very clear to our friends – we’re talking to the Irish today – what the limits are and what we want to do.”
      One assumes he meant Varadkar or that insolent Eire Foreign Minister Coveney.
      Since WHEN has either of them been a ‘friend’ to Britain? Since when has any Dublin government included ‘friends’ of our country?
      I would say not since they supported Argentine aggression in 1982, or gave IRA terrorists a safe haven all during the so-called ‘Troubles,’ or was it before that, when de Valera mourned Hitler’s death in1945?

      What Johnson calls ‘our friends’ are our black-hearted enemies, who want to grab part of our country.
      We have a Prime Minister we cannot trust to distinguish between friend and foe.

    Exactly HOW Many Brexit U-Turns Have Happened? 


    My buddies and I are out for a drink in posh Kuningan, or Menteng.

    My round.

    “What’s it to be, guys, Heineken or Bintang?”

    Having decided, like all the rest, to order Bintang, I advise the bar-maid of our order. As she starts pouring, I change my mind.

    “Make that four Bintang and one Heineken, love!”

    Will the local newspaper report this development the next day as

    OldiesButGoodies-1

    ……..

    Market Share Shock – Expats in Jakarta change to Heineken!  

    ….

    Obviously not!

    If a tiny minority of a group change their minds about something, can ANY – even the most partisan –  media be justified in constructing a headline that makes it seem like a massive U-turn?  –

    Brexit-backing British nationals living in Spain told Channel 4 News they feel remorse for their decision as they face an uncertain future…

    Leave-backing expats in Spain regret their decision as Brexit looms …inews.co.ukFeb 11, 2019

    Now that headline is grotesquely, and probably deliberately, misleading…

    lies

    …suggesting that all the patriots who have retired from their UK jobs and decided, like me, that life in a hot sunny climate is a pleasant prospect, me in Jakarta, they to Spanish shores…

    …have u-turned on  their patriotic Leave decision and have now joined the Grovel Gang!

    But when you read the story below the headline, you quickly learn that the hacks have spoken to a mere handful of that expat community.

    No attempt was made to conduct any serious survey of expat opinion.

    It is highly unlikely that there has been any major shift in expat opinion.

    fake

    .

    Of course when  you read the whole ‘i-news’ piece and see that it wasn’t them that created this archetypal ‘Fake News’ but another, notoriously unsound, segment of the UK media…

    .

    ..

    …you will NOT be surprised.

    ……

    Speaking of people changing, or not changing, their minds….

    …..whatever can we say about a man who year after year would not be pressured into abandoning his enthusiasm for Blood-Beast Adams the Sinn Fein/IRA terror boss…

     

    adamscorbyn

    ….but, this month, this week, today, almost within a twinkling of an eye, threw overboard his public pledge to implement the decision of the British people on taking back their sovereignty from the Brussels Empire.

      Your prologue gives us an insight or two into your Jakarta life-style, sounds like you enjoy life, but the point you are making is loud and clear.
      Did Channel 4 bump into any expats there in Spain who have not changed their minds?
      Surely they must have, but they quote not a word from any Brit who has stayed true to the cause of independence.
      So biased reporting, but what else can we expact fom Channel 4?

      By the way, Ross, we just saw on BBC, their Spain reporter saying that he was in a Benidorm expat bar last night, where 6 out of 10 were Leave voters and wanted out – no deal or not.
      Must have been a different bar from Channel Four, yes?
