    Dirty Strasbourg Slugs! What Are They Hiding? 

    The European Parliament questions whether the ombudsman had the right to criticise the institution’s “margin of discretion” in deciding on publication of confidential papers about the controversial monthly €4,513 expenses lump sum for MEPs. Read


    Do read on, and tell as many people as you can about how these foul Strasbourg Slugs are scared stiff  of exposure to even deeper loathing and contempt than that in which the public already holds them.

      I like this better, when you let the story speak for itself.
      It’s not that I don’t appreciate your rage, but when you produce half a dozen a day, I can’t devote that much time to reading everything.

      I will pass this on but most, if not all British people know that the European ‘Parliament’ is riddled with self-seeking grubs. They see their ‘jobs’ as a means to enrich themselves at the expense of the people they are there to represent.
      If there were any justice in their ‘Europe,’ they would be put on trial for corruption, then put up against a wall and shot.

        Petra, if you are proposing a firing squad for the Strasbourg Slugs, I would like to volunteer!

    Won’t Shake Hands? Send ‘Em Back! 

    Great to see some authorities in Europe are refusing to bow down to backward aliens who can’t, or more accurately won’t, adapt to civilised standards.



    But shocking to see how others  grovel to multicult!

    Hats off, firstly, to Mayor Gregoire Junod of Lausanne, who’s forthright in his defence of last month’s decision to deny Swiss citizenship to a brace of aliens.’

    He refused to divulge the couple’s nationalities or other identifying details, but said they “did not shake hands with people of the opposite sex…. They also “showed great difficulty in answering questions asked by people of the opposite sex.”

    Unfit to play any part in Switzerland in the 21st century.

    Even better sentiments came from his deputy, Pierre-Antoine Hildeband.

    “The constitution and equality between men and women prevails over bigotry,” he said.


    Trust The Leftal, sorry, The Local, to throw in the ‘news’ that ‘some devout Muslims argue that Islam does not permit physical contact with a member of the opposite sex.’

    The proper word is NOT ‘devout.’

    Normal Muslims, ‘devout’ or not, certainly in this 90% Muslim country I live in, hold to no such pig-ignorant sexist nonsense.

    And whatever, just because some ‘devout’ or otherwise sectarians ‘argue’ some crappy case, that’s no reason normal people, Christian, Muslim or of any creed, should respect primitive rubbish.



    After all, we all regard the vile ‘behead blasphemers’ skunks with loathing and contempt.

    Yet elsewhere in Europe…



    …where else – you could guess, I suppose, but it’s Sweden – the authorities, in this case an ombudsman, in that northern kingdom, have crawled on their bureaucratic bellies to backward bints who flaunt their sexism.

    • A nation that abases itself before aliens who refuse to leave their benighted habits at home deserves to sink into the swamp called multicult.

    Wow! The Leftal Gets It Right On Illegals, Briefly! 

    Spain’s human rights ombudsman hit out Thursday at the often “cruel” treatment meted out to illegal immigrants, saying the system had to be changed.



    Another un-elected sticky-beak (although he used to be elected, as a far-left socialist MP!) demanding elected representatives do his bidding?

    One’s instinctive response to The Leftal, sorry, The Local’s report on another bleeding-heart whining on behalf of crimmigrants is surely…




    If undesirable aliens gatecrash somebody else’s country, then the lawless swine have no right to complain if they don’t like their welcome!

    But hold on just a goldarn minute!

    The Leftal forgot to use their usual disinformational tactic – the illegals are not described as ‘irregular’ or ‘undocumented’ or just uncategorised ‘migrants!’

    The Local has unusually admitted these aliens are ‘ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!’



    A giant step for mainstream media-kind!

    Nor are the aliens concerned guilty only of violation of Spain’s sovereign frontiers.

    The report actually seems to try to make a martyr of a trouble-maker who suicided after being put in solitary confinement, even though The Local admits that the illegal Algerian was identified by Interior Minister Juan Ignacio Zoido as among 12 people who stirred up a “mutiny…”

    Read here about the riot that crimmigrant started.    https://www.thelocal.es/20180125/spain-says-migrant-who-died-in-jail-had-instigated-riot

    And all he got was solitary confinement for a mere 16 hours? They should have dropped him back in the Algerian desert, with or without a parachute!

    And there was a PUBLIC UPROAR?

    Orchestrated by ‘NGO‘s, leftist politicians and the Enemy Within media, I’ll bet.

    The sticky-beak in the headline sticks well and truly to the pro-crimmigrant propaganda script, telling Spaniards how ‘cruel’ they are to people who are only seeking a better life..”

    The ‘independent’ ombudsman just happens to be a veteran politician for the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE)


    then urge the government to put the issue to the appropriate decision-makers.

    Give the people of Spain a proper democratic consultation on the standard of accommodation available to uninvited aliens.

    Let the electorate choose from a menu – five-star hotels all the way down to dungeons  – and once Spaniards have spoken, pipe down, pinko!

      I thought the ombudsman is supposed to be an impartial referee type.
      Why did they appoint a socialist?
      No loss, that riotous illegal, so why all the fuss?
      If Spain treats them like they deserve, makes them miserable enough. then the illegals will stop invading.

    Expat Money Troubles – Who’s To Be Trusted? 

    An English friend here in Jakarta had a terrible time getting his work pension payments transferred here from The Old Country last year.

    Eventually, when he was very ill, and his Indonesian wife was on the phone with the well-known international bank concerned, he shouted loudly –

    ‘If I just die, will that solve the problem?’

    • 'How am I going to check my email now..?'

      ‘How am I going to check my email now..?’


    • Happily, he didn’t die, but one gets the impression from some financial institutions that we overseas customers are truly seen as a mere inconvenience.

    High finance looks down on us mortals?


    And even back in Blighty, the snooty lords of high finance are often fairly cavalier in their dealings with small investors.  

    I myself have had a few run-ins with people in The City who ought to know better than needlessly antagonise a cantankerous retiree of Ulster-Scots descent.

    Sometimes I have won – amazingly, by the simple method of pointing out common-sense solutions which they appear to be incapable of noticing themselves – but if you can’t get it sorted, there’s always the good old advice –

    ‘Write to your MP!’


    Thanks to Cameron’s failure to honour the Tory pledge to give expat Brits their votes back, anyone resident abroad for more than 15 years doesn’t have an MP!

    Still subject to Inland revenue, of course – none of that nonsense about ‘no taxation without representation!’


    • Cameron+and+Home+Secretary+Theresa+May+(L)+walk+through+Terminal+5+during+a+visit+to+UK+Border+Agency+staff


    Will Theresa May prove more honourable than her predecessor?

    Wouldn’t be hard!


    However, there’s another option.

    Here’s the details of the UK Financial Services Ombudsman, the body mentioned in the article above.

    How to complain – Financial Ombudsman Service

    They can’t solve everything, but it’s worth a try.

    And Canadians in such plights have an equivalent.

      No taxation without representation! It’s an old slogan but it’s still a fair demand, and the British Government has some cheek chasing up British expats for taxes when they refuse to give those same people the right to vote.

      I am sure your English friend isn’t the only one to have that kind of trouble and I’m not surprised the ombudsman gets so many complaints about those companies like Fidelity that think once they have your money they can treat you any old way they like.

    Ladies’ Nights ‘Unfair to Men!’ Seriously! 

    So much lunacy to contend with, and how to outdo the tale of the nutty redskin yesterday?
    There’s a Swede millionaire who has banned bacon from all the many hotels he owns…
    Inline images 1
    …boycott, please!
    I tend to think bacon ought to be compulsory for breakfast, at least.

    Then I  stumbled on WHO’s latest bizarre BS – salami and ham were placed on the “bad food” list in a study by the World Health Organisation (WHO), published on Monday, as being causes of cancer..   Salami causes cancer’: WHO’s telling porkies?


    UN food-fascism now?
    Telling the world to lay off super-yummy delights?
    For pity’s sakes. Is nothing sacred?

    But all that hogwash PALED into insignificance in comparison to the imbecility of Austria’s ombudsman.



    Well, OF COURSE THEY BLOODY DO! That’s why they’re called LADIES’ NIGHTS.

    What’s particularly horrid is that it looks like this Alpine sticky-beak was prompted to cause trouble by MEN complaining about the fine phenomenon…. men saying they were never the ones to benefit from such offers financially.

    Musta been poofters.

    Normal men fully grasp that Ladies’ Nights are held for men’s benefit – the idea being that you attract hordes of chicks by offering cheap or gratis grog, thus providing guys with a vast reservoir of nubile prey.



    Alas, Herr Schtiki-Beek can enforce his moronic conclusion because, regrettably, Austria has a damfool law called the Equal Treatment Act – which paves the way for men to sue a nightclub for damages if they believe they have been discriminated against.

     How pathetic!

    Mind you, the feeble and fatuous efforts by the clubs and bars to fight back almost deserve the Orrible Ombudsman’s killjoy cr#p ruling.

    Even ‘equal rights lawyer’ Ines Grabner-Drews saw through the appeasement drivel – ‘it is unlikely that companies in the entertainment and leisure sector are really concerned about equal pay” and that the real motivation behind Ladies’ Nights is to attract more women to nightclubs, which helps draw in more men.

    YES, and WHY NOT?

    It’s fun, and now it’s been stopped by grimnasties who hate fun. No more free drinks for gals, and guys no longer able to aspire to their paradisical nocturnal ideal..


    …shooting fish in a barrel.
