    Cenotaph Soiled- Cops Cower – Bojo Bottles Out! 

    After those vile X-Stinko scumbags desecrated the Cenotaph…

    The former soldier who hijacked the Cenotaph Remembrance Day ceremony is a convicted heroin dealer who was accused of abusing his disabled wife…



    ….Donald Bell’s Armistice Day actions on behalf of Extinction Rebellion (XR) caused fury from veterans after he walked over other official wreaths to plant one on behalf of the climate change extremists.  

    Yesterday he even dismissed the official Remembrance ceremonies as ‘a little ritual’.

    ….Boris Johnson echoed the outrage felt by decent Brits everywhere, via his Downing Street spokesman –

    ‘The Cenotaph is a memorial to those who fought and died to preserve all our freedoms…today, of all days, when we join together to pay tribute to our war dead, this action was profoundly disrespectful.’

    The cowardly, craven behaviour of the Metropolitan Police who sat back and allowed the “Extinction Rebellion” vermin to taint Remembrance….

    …. was seen as all the more reprehensible after their goon-squad handling of the patriotic piper last week.

    There is really NO excuse for government failure to fire that Common Purpose Commissar, Cressida ‘Thick’ Dick, who, as Metropolitan Police Commissioner, MUST carry the can for the deeds and misdeeds of her officers.

    Her record was already atrocious!

    Sacking that weird woman could restore ( at least a little bit!) British people’s confidence in “Bojo’s” shaky management of the realm.

    But as the media reported, when asked if police should have prevented the offensive stunt, the  PM’s spokesman could only whimper feebly!

    ‘These are operational matters for the police.’


    No, they’re not. The job of police is to enforce the law, without discrimination.

    If Johnson is unaware of the wider still and wider spread of dismay and distrust at the politicisation of not just London’s but many another UK constabulary…

    Police-State UK? Don’t Dare Say It’s OK To Be White! 

    Avon and Somerset Police Superintendent Andy Bennett said the action was“inexplicable and unacceptable,” and that the police treat “any reported hate crime with the utmost seriousness.” 


    …..politicisation displayed in the starkest, most leftwing partisanship possible…

      You speak for me and for millions in Britain who are sick and tired of the uneven-handed policing which has replaced the honest coppers we grew up with.

      I was wondering when you would get round to this! I love your blog.

    Remembrance Day – Lest We Forget How Ignorant Some Europhiliacs Are! 

    If you voted to leave the EU, don’t bother wearing a poppy…

    John Lubbock

    That was written by a slimy SOB named John Lubbock, who styles himself a ‘writer / filmmaker / caf-fiend / human rights person…’ neglecting to add ignoramus, but he proves that promptly as he writes.

     Many Brexiteers claim to honour the victims of war while denigrating the very institutions set up to prevent future wars, showing themselves to be historically illiterate at best...

    https://www.independent.co.uk › voices › eu-leave-vote-remembrance-sun

    As far as I know, few Brexiteers have urged the break-up of NATO, which is the institution set up to prevent future wars.

    Lubbock’s adored EUSSR was set up, dishonestly, as a ‘trading bloc,’ nothing to do with peace-keeping.


    • “Europe’s nations should be guided towards the super-state without their people understanding what is happening. This can be accomplished by successive steps each disguised as having an economic purpose, but which will eventually and irreversibly lead to federation.”

    • =JeanMonnetREX_468x719
      • Jean Monnet, the supranationalist exalted by Fourth Reich fanatics.

      • Maybe Lubbock is ignorant of the Nazi roots of the EU, but more probably he’s simply heedless of the historical truth.

      • =

      • =
      • And that slug ain’t the only one!

        There was also a tweet from Chris Davies, predictably a Liberal Democrat MEP –

        We wear red poppies for remembrance and hope for a peaceful future (Royal British Legion). But the EU provides more than hope, after centuries of conflict it was created to ensure that it must never happen again. Am I wrong to be cynical about Brexiteers wearing poppies?

        That squirt is indeed wrong and he was splendidly put in his place by Iain Dale, as you may read….


        …and the more you read about Davies, the more you will despise him!

      • Here in Jakarta, there is, I understand, a Remembrance Sunday Service, but when last I enquired, the timing is not given out for ‘security reasons,’ which I understand, but I also heard that the normal 11am start ‘had to be adjusted’ (because it’s too hot!) after some poor old biddy fainted several years ago!

      • Since the location is at the (beautifully-maintained ) Allied armed forces cemetery in Menteng, extremely far from where I live, it would be a long and possibly vain trek for me to make my way thither…

      • .
      • Back home, we always attended the Remembrance Day services
      • ===========================================
      • …only to find it had taken place already, therefore I choose on this 11th November (by the time you overseas folks read this, it will be Monday here!) quietly to remember my many kin who served their countries, Britain, Canada and Australia.

      • I will at various times of the day be on my own, or on the bus, or with my Indonesian companions in town…

      • -..grandpa in France.
      • Grandpa, on the right, of course…
      • …or in my home, where photographs of some of those kin are not an annual but a daily reminder of the fight for freedom.

      I agree with every word you say.

      We used to have remembrance on the 11th, I believe, and my father used to tell me that even in the busiest city centres, a full two minutes of silence fell.
      Everybody shut up.
      I wish people like Lubbock would shut up. He deliberately sets out to be offensive.

    Remembrance Day, 2018… 

    Good people all over the British Commonwealth, and elsewhere, will have been wearing their poppies this week with pride…

    ..but some very bad people in the UK, like that slimy cur James McLean…

    Of my offspring’s four grandparents, three served King and Country in the armed forces of their various countries.




    The fourth served too, in a nurse’s uniform.

    The previous generation also did their bit in what they called the Great War, a conflict that left Europe debilitated through the massive losses among the bravest and best on the battle-fields.

      Nicely done, Ross, and you make the point gracefully, not like Macron and his fellow-travellers in our countries, who have been deliberately perverting the patriotic purpose of Remembrance by turning their speeches into vicious attacks on nationalism.
      It was the determination of the giant multtinational empire of Austria-Hungary to suppress nationalism which sparked the First World War and Hitler’s (and the Soviets) determination to suppress Polish nationalism which sparked the Second World War.
      Your frequent references to the EUSSR as the Brussels Empire are always a welcome reminder that multinational empires hostile to the sovereignty of small nations, Poland the obvious example, have not gone away.
      Macron taints this day when we should be proud of all the men and women whose national pride took them off to defend their nations and who never came home.

      Sorry, my comment ten minutes ago was incomplete. I should have given the link – https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/08/world/europe/macron-nationalism-populism-wwi-armistice.html

      to the speech which Macron made,exploiting Remembrance events to promote his anti-patriot globalist message.

        Thanks, Andrew, and I am sure there are many more who think like you and me who are disgusted by Macron.
        We expect disparaging of national pride and identity from the pipsqueak but trying to hi-jack Remembrance Day to further his liberal supranational agenda?
        Repulsive little man!

      I am watching the ceremonials at Ypres and it is very moving.
      How very sad that Macron wants to turn it into a Europhile propaganda circus.

        I have the BBC on here in Jakarta, Vicki, and it’s disgusting, the Beeblings boosting Macron’s politicising the day.
        Some male Beeber just called Trump and Putin ‘beasts,’ and a yammering cow in Paris has tried to link the French African colonial troops’ contribution to the swarms of crimmigrants on the Med.
        The BBC is without any scruples in how it pushes its ideological jihad.

      The hour has struck, 11am, and we should all be remembering all who lost their lives in the service of King and Country.
      Across the Channel their soldiers had fought for La France.
      All over Europe there was no doubt that patriotic sacrifice deserved to be honoured.
      Now we have to listen to Macron making speeches about ‘Europe’ with its own army to confront America!
      Who’s he going to recruit for that?
      Millennial snowflakes showing their gratitude for the free rail trsvel that Juncker has granted them?
      God help us all.

      All over, for another 27 years then another centenary, and by then the WW2 vets will all be long gone.
      And probably glad to be out of it. The ones who died in the first war and the second would be ashamed of the Canadian and the British leaders of today.
      I don’t know much about the situation in France but from what I read Macron does not speak for most of the French. After what he has been saying today, his poll numbers might get even worse.
      We have to ask ourselves though. Who voted these unpatriotic leaders into office?
      Lest we forget?
      Too many have forgotten what it was all for.


    • Jeanne 16:29 on November 12, 2018 Permalink | Reply

      So many of you see Macron for what he is, an anti-patriot.
      In France I see our real leader, Marine Le Pen, is warning against him, and because sometimes my English is a little bit faulty, I look for translation in an English media.
      This is how she tells it.
      “He is touring France to pay tribute to the hundreds of thousands of French soldiers who gave their lives to defend their nation, to defend their borders; and yet at the same time, he is aggressive, violent and hateful towards those who politically, pacifically and democratically want to defend their nation and their borders.”

      I cannot say it better. What a great error of judgment last year, that the French voted for Macron. Even so, it is an error they will not make again, I pray.

    CAIR-Scum – This Sicko Sow Should be…What? 

         This is primarily for American readers, but given the kind of vermin we’ve seen crawling around the UK and other civilised nations…


    Poppies burned

    Burning poppies in London on Remembrance Day – why is treason no longer a capital offence?


    … perhaps a lot of you will find it worth a read.


    Zarah Billou is a filthy sick sow if ever there were one!

    The po-faced slag doesn’t like honouring her country’s war dead.

    NB  – She’s from San Francisco, but I’m not sure America really is her country. It doesn’t sound like it! She shouldn’t be allowed to live there, given what she’s said.

    She’s part of CAIR, which more and more Americans are learning is not JUST part of Obama’s in-crowd but a den of sectarian vipers.



    I know what I think should be done with her.

    But is it legal to say what I think, even in the bloggosphere?

    Read this linked story and see what you think!

    Enemy Within Wanna Kill HM? That’s Treason! The Penalty Should Be DEATH! 

    On Thursday, police arrested four men between 19 and 27, three of them in London, as part of an“ongoing investigation into Islamist-related terrorism.” All those arrested are reportedly UK residents.


    Britain's Queen Elizabeth lays a wreath during the annual Remembrance Sunday ceremony at the Cenotaph in London November 11, 2012 (Reuters / Luke MacGregor)

    “Whatever the security assessment, Her Majesty would not shirk from her responsibility and duty – and this Remembrance Sunday is no different,” Buckingham Palace source


    A plot to kill the Queen?

    At least this RT report didn’t degrade the word ‘British’ by describing these scum as ‘British.’ No matter where they live, where they were born, or what passports they carry, they are NOT British.




    But if they have been enjoying all the rights and privileges that accrue to the status of Her Majesty’s subjects, then their offences should be classified as TREASON….




    ….and if found guilty, they deserve the traditional penalty for that offence.

      She’s not only the Brits’ Queen, she is Canada’s too, and Australia’s and New Zealand’s. I was horrifed when I read about this.
      I wish each of her countries could take turns hanging these traitors.

    Where Have All The 888,236 Flowers Gone? 



    Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red

    By November 11th, if you haven’t seen that stupendous display at the Tower of London, you won’t have much more time to do so, because they’re being sold off to raise money for ex-service charities – I believe FIFTEEN MILLION POUNDS!

    • congratulationssuperjob
    • Controversy has broken out because many people want the work of art preserved indefinitely, and I can understand that wish.

    But if the ceramic poppies are not delivered to the people who have paid for them, that’s breach of contract – unfair, too!

    So why not mark THOSE poppies as a limited special edition, and replace them one by one as they go. The artist would benefit, and nobody would be out of pocket, as a permanent sales situation could proceed.

    That way, millions of people  ( like me for a start!) would have an opportunity to appreciate this remarkable scene over the years ahead, and the buyers of the original crop would not be disappointed. 

    Just a thought on Remembrance Sunday.
