    This Summer, Hit The Wall – Hadrian’s That Is! 


    An excellent article in the Mail by a journalist named Tom Utley, who, refreshingly for a UK journo, declares that he was born into allegiance to the British Crown…

    .

    .

    …and intends – not too soon, we must hope – to pass away in that same splendid condition.

    His article covers a number of issues, one being his contempt for Remainiac turds ( my word, not his!) who take up Eire passports due to a grandparental link…

    …in order to travel more easily to the Continent.

    He rightly sees their antics as ‘near treason,’ and I agree.

    He misses an opportunity to condemn the idiocy of allowing Eire citizens to vote in UK elections…

    …but I’ve covered that in the past.

    However, he does hammer home the spiteful nastiness of the Fourth Reich’s treatment of British tourists…

    .

    .

    …illogical victimisation of Brits as part of the Brussels grand design to dissuade other nations who might want to emulate Brexit.

    .

    Le Muppet

    .

    Utley names Le Muppet Macron as one villain in the vaccine yarn, but gives us a perfect example from the Spanish Government’s childish treatment of UK children.

    .

    . “According to Madrid’s logic, an unvaccinated British 12-year-old poses a serious threat to Spanish health — so serious, indeed, that she can’t be allowed into the country — but it’s perfectly safe to let her in if she happens to be accompanied by her Polish nanny!

    So!

    ..

    What, you’re asking (if you’re still reading!) has this got to do with Hadrian’s Wall?

    Just that there’s a lot going on there this year, 1900 years after it was built.

    Northumberland has a lot to offer, even if you’re not into archaeology – I am, have been ever since I joined a dig at Housesteads Roman Fort as a teen.

    Go there, enjoy the rugged scenery, hills and tarns, take some walks and savour the history…

    oooo

    ..rather than waste time, energy and money on crossing the Channel!

    .

    ..

    Or Scotland’s Western Isles, or Ulster’s Giant’s Causeway, or the Norfolk Broads… Britain’s got lots to offer!

      You almost make me homesick, Ross, but not quite, even with the rain Jakarta has had.
      Al those places you include are great for a visit.
      But not if it’s raining!

    Your Very Own Brick In Donald’s Wall? 


    We have noted how the Mexican Government has expressed reluctance to pay for the wall which their citizens’ wilful crimmigration into the USA has necessitated.

    ——-

    ———

    We also note that the same government has plenty of funds to lavish on supporting their crimmigrants already in America who are proving recalcitrant about going home.  Mexico launches $50 million effort in US

    =

    -=

    Therefore it is reasonable to assume that initially the cost of the Great Wall needs to be found elsewhere.

    Obviously US taxes are one source.

    But think about it.

    I have often seen appeals from institutions (like my alma mater, for example) seeking donations with a promise to inscribe a brick with one’s name or that of a loved one, to immortalise the goodwill shown.

    Just flicking through Google, I came across several such schemes. Here’s one – 

    Have your name memorialised in Tavistock Community Sensory Garden

    I’m sure the sensory garden is a splendid project, but om reflection…

    How about this for a scheme?

     

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

    • Walls are an important part of history.
    • Some have lasted through two thousand years…
    • Hadrian’s Wall, in England. built circa AD 120, where I once joined in archaeological excavations.
    • ……
    • …or longer…
    • Gambar terkait
    • oooooo
    • Even many of us who are not Americans would surely be proud and pleased to pay for a brick, if only as a token of solidarity with patriots in the USA…
    • =
    • …and of our appreciation of Trump’s defeat of the forces of evil last November.
    • I heard somebody on TV talking about this idea, but it was just idle chat, as far as I know.
    • Many of my readers in the USA are active in conservative movements.
    • Could they not get together and start the ball rolling – or should I say get the Wall rising?
