    Brexiteers Will Like This Article! 

    I have often praised spiked.com, even though I don’t always agree with some of their writers.

    This, which I was sent today, sums up very nicely what I have thought for some time, which is, in general…



    May is a menace and must be put out.

    Read and savour!

    Gutless Gove’s ‘Disappointment?’ Very Fishy! 

    The EU is prepared to allow the UK a say in the negotiations on setting the allowable catch for the EU fleet even after the formal departure date of 29 March 2019.

    Mr Gove said the government had pressed for the UK to be an equal partner in fishing negotiations during the 21-month “implementation period” – but the EU had blocked this. 


    What a wet!

     Has the Royal Navy been dismantled?

    “We were disappointed the EU would not move on this,” he told MPs, saying that the UK only had to wait a further year for complete control of its waters.

    Why the HELL should British fishermen wait a year to get their rightful haul of British fish?

    “It’s important that all of us, in every area, accept that the implementation period is a necessary step towards securing that prize.

    It is NOT ‘necessary’ – if Gove had any guts at all he would declare parliamentary war on Theresa The Appeaser and tell her to immediately authorise measures to stop and detain any continental fishing boats caught stealing fish within UK territorial waters.

    Effective naval operations were undertaken in the famous ‘Cod Wars’ with Iceland in the Sixties and Seventies.

    After the entry of the Royal Navy into the contested waters, there were usually at any given time four frigates and an assortment of tugboats to protect the British trawling fleet…


    Imagine May showing backbone today, as she scuttles about Brussels currying favour with the Euro-Commissars?

    The Tory Brexiteers should be excoriating her treachery, not least Gove, who was a prominent figure in the Leave campaign.

    But then, even then, he showed little stomach for the fight, as when Nigel Farage produced one of the most effective patriotic posters seen in the final weeks before the referendum…

    ..And all Gutless Gove could do was distance himself from the powerful message it delivered.

      You could say the same about Boris Johnson.
      Like you, I was distrustful of the Brexit Tories and like you I kept my feelings about them low-key during the referendum campaign so as not to rock the boat.
      Now there they are, letting ReMAYner mess it all up with her almost weekly sell-outs.

      Come back, Nigel – is what I say.

      I never rated him.
      I suppose both sides had their stars and their drossier performers but with Gove there was never much I felt like clapping for.

    NB Team Brexit! Brussels’ Swiss Lackeys War Down Democracy! 

    I try not to write at immense length, although if you go back to my early blogging days, you’ll see I used to succumb frequently to that temptation.


    However, this article from Spiked.com will give you a good Sunday morning read, which many Brits, if I remember right, DO enjoy very much, in between munching on buttery toast and slurps of coffee.

    Even in Switzerland, the EU erodes democracy
    How Swiss leaders use the EU to weaken popular sovereignty.

    It’s common for Brexiteers to single out Switzerland as the most democratic country in Europe…



    …and how the UK could learn from its position vis-a-vis the EUSSR.

    But that Swiss democracy would be overnight erased  were it ever foolish enough to  surrender its sovereignty to the Brussels Evil Empire.

    And worse, by legislative pandering to the Euro-Commissars, the parliament in Berne is selling out their nation’s heritage of self-determination.



    Liar Juncker was actually telling the truth when he warned EUSSR-ruled nation-states not to think for one moment that they had any right to determine their own futures.



    The Spiked piece gives an interesting perspective on the Swiss situation – enjoy reading it if you will.

    • Mike Kenlow 4:33 pm on July 30, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      It’s so wrong how these cheap politicians are prepared to give up Switzerland’s freedoms.
      A lot of our states have direct democracy-referendum systems and citizen initiatives too, but the American courts have taken aim at democratic control and told us very loudly that they are not on the side of the American people.

      The Founding Fathers would turn in their graves over the way the Supreme Court imposed ‘gay’ marriage. That ruling showed us all how fragile our democracy is.

      We can only hope and pray that Donald Trump gets the chance to replace a few more of the worst judges there. .

    Pin-Head Pants-Down! A Racist Slur On Ulster Brits 

    Paddy Pants-Down was always something of a dork, as we have noted before.



    Paddy Pants-Down Rides Again, Enraged By Democracy! 

    But his latest racist slur against to Ulstermen –“you never let the Ulstermen get their hands on the nation” –  which, in this egalitarian day and age, insults Ulsterwomen too – has provoked stern rebukes from patriots there.



    Not least TUV’s Jim Alister.

    “I found it deeply insulting, indeed I found it racist. To pick out people on the basis of cultural identity and say because you are an Ulsterman you can’t be in government is outrageous.

    Too true.

    Imagine if somebody said that about British politicians of Scots, or Welsh origins?

    Lloyd George, Alec Hume, Gordon Brown…all would be excluded if the ‘Pants-Down Principle’ were made law. Maybe the UK could have been better without their ministerial ministrations, but that’s NOT the point.

    To brand the best and most loyal British as unfit to hold the reins of government responsibility is GROSSLY offensive.

    Jim’s entirely justified indignation was echoed by Ulster Unionist chief whip Steve Aiken:

    “Paddy Ashdown’s comments were offensive, crass, and totally hypocritical..


    Jim concluded his denunciation by saying that the effort to put together an arrangement supported by a majority of MPs was the constitutional way to do things.

    “It’s called democracy!”

    But then Pants-Down detests democracy.

    ..the peer and former Liberal Dem leader  – branded Brexiteers as “dispossessed and voiceless” as he compared the rise of Hitler in Nazi Germany in the 1930s to the referendum result.                                            http://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/749212/PaddyAshdown-Brexit-1930s-Adolf-Hitler


    One must assume the fifty-plus percent of the electorate who dared disagree with the Liberal Democrat dork are thereby relegated, along with Ulsterfolk, to the ranks of those not entitled to participate in the governance of their country?

    • Reid Nesbit 3:33 am on June 21, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      Ashdown is a waste of space. He should be told to shut up but he’s nothing compared to Corbyn.
      Did you see that skunk weep at the mosque in Finsbury Park?
      Corbyn is rotten to the core, I would say in his soul but the man has no soul or if he once had he sold it to the devil..
      How many times did he ever shed even one tiny wee tear for the victims of his IRA heroes?
      He needs to be prevented from ever getting near the doors of 19 Downing Street..

    Tanks On Oxford Street? Coup In UK, Shrills Guardian’s Ga-Ga Gran! 

    Mrs. May took me by surprise, and I’m hardly alone in that respect.

    My immediate reaction last night, though not exactly a deep and thoughtful analysis, having got home late after a lot of beer and fun at a very enjoyable social event…

    …was that this sly woman wants to stage some sort of sell-out on Brexit, and needs more lap-dogs to help her under-cut resistance from Tory MPs who take sovereignty seriously.


    • ============
    • This morning I remain convinced that’s true.

    • But her decision to call an election is perfectly constitutional and Brit patriots need to get themselves organised.

    • Agreed?

    • NO, roars a hysterical senior citizen from the pages of that bastion of left-liberalism, The Guardian.

    • Theresa has staged a COUP!

      I think everyone should sign this and I have done.
      All British people are entitled to sign it, even those of us overseas who were deliberately excluded from the referendum because we have lived or worked overseas for 15 years, as I have. I love being where I am but I’m still British and proud of it.
      Note the Inland Revenue still tax us!
      The Americans revolted and declared independence on the principle of ‘no taxation without representation,’ but Conservatives and Labour have refused to learn that lesson and play fair by us expats.
      Time to revolt, in my opinion.

      The petition’s now reached around 95000 signatures, so we need another 5000 to get it debated in Parliament, if I’m right about the rules.
      Keep up the good work, Ross.

    Uppity Swede Objects To UK Liberation! 

    After those Swede grovel-bints in Tehran a week ago…Iran – Contemptible Swedish Cows Crawl To Shariah Sexists …one might wish to hear no more from pompous pinkos hailing from that crimmigrant-colonised country, but alas!

    Now we have a mouthy vixen named Corazza Bildt, a Swedish MEP…



    Bildt the Wannabe Language Expert


    …trying to teach her own quaint ‘pinko-proper’ meanings of English words to an Englishman, who needs no introduction to British readers, or most anyone else.


    Miffed ... Boris Johnson.

    Boris can be annoying, and I’ve had some  harsh words for him from time to time, but he is well-educated and used the word ‘liberation’ quite correctly to describe the Brexit process.

    ‘Liberation’ has been grossly misused since WW2, not least by Communist murder gangs calling themselves ‘national liberation fronts.’



    Among the nastiest and most dissimulative in its use were the Viet Cong terrorists.


    But if your country is subject to rule from abroad, and you finally get to exercise the right of self-determination and regain independence, then what better word to use than ‘liberation?’

    “It’s etymologically equivalent to being freed,” Johnson told the MEP, “and I’m afraid it’s an undeniable fact that we, the UK, has been unable to do, to run its own trade policy for 44 years.”


    Spot on, Boris!

    But get the Ms Uppity’s arrogant retort.

    Corazza Bildt responded: “We are neither occupying you or a prison,” before the panel discussion moved on.

    Last time I was back in Blighty, despite it being months after the referendum…


    june 23


    …I was disgusted to see those repulsive alien flags still flying on far too many government buildings.

    I’ve not recently been down to posh Kuningan, in Jakarta, to check out the UK Embassy there, but as far as I am aware, despite my appeal for a cleansing…

    Memo to H. E. Moazzam Malik – Haul Down The EU Rag! 



     …the EUSSR banner still flutters beside the Red, White and Blue. Boris Johnson is right to speak of British Liberation.


    But it has not yet come to pass.

    When it does, no more alien flags given parity of esteem to Union Jacks, OK?

    And while I am not unsympathetic to Poles working in the UK and wishing to continue, some ‘Europeans’ should be declared unwelcome – that patronising Bildt woman for a start!

    I gather Russia has already told her she’s not welcome!

    Which Dustbin Denizens Should Freedom Fighters Email?

    But still the word gets through, readers in The Old Country sending useful links, like the one below from Bruges Group.

    But before you read it, a word of explanation re my less than flattering headline, and the relevance thereof.

    The House of Lords was once hereditary, none of its members elected by the people, and its entirely undemocratic basis is unchanged – except that now it’s a dustbin, a destination for unelected deadbeats, appointed after electoral defeat or sometimes years of party political flunkey duty in local authorities, etc..




    Or just because thy give huge chunks of cash to one party or another. Dave’s cronyism stinks… I thank the Lord I said no to MY peerage 


    Sometimes genuinely useful people DO get given peerages, for serious achievement in non-party political spheres of activity.

    Take part in the campaign to make sure Brexit is not blocked
    Please ask the members of the House of Lords not to oppose, nor water down, Brexit.

    Email them to support the EU (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill. Petition the Peers to respect the referendum result and vote the right way







    Ask the Lords to support the withdrawal bill and allow Article 50 to be invoked without any amendments that would breach the will of the people, as expressed in the referendum. The members of the Lords should not seek to place conditions on our exit, nor should they cause delays.





    The referendum of 23rd June 2016 must be the final say on this issue, the UK should leave the European Union. This will allow for the mandate set by the referendum to be fulfilled.

    The EU should not be led to believe that the UK will settle for anything less than a full exit from the European Union.

    The Members of the House of Lords, having approved the referendum, should keep faith with the result. Ask them to pass the Article 50 European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill through the House of Lords without opposing it, or seeking to water down Brexit.

    We are confident that the UK will thrive outside of the EU.

    However, first… 


    Although spiked.com has many left-wingers in its ranks, they are of that rare breed of leftists, the honest sort. 

    Now they have produced a very short but very effective film, which you may enjoy very much.

    I append the details below.

      I have watched this film and it is a good concise production that states its case very articulately.
      I have also been looking at spiked.com and you are not wrong.
      It’s not rightwing at all (see this week’s attack on Trump) but it is lucid and well-argued whichever side it favors.
      i would categorize it as old-style libertarian, a little like Barry Goldwater, and very unlike you..
      You take a traditional conservative nationalist line.
      I can see much to be said for both positions but what you have in common is that leftwing elitism is a bad thing. So I think you are both serving a useful purpose…

    Ukip leader Paul Nuttall on track to EASILY win Stoke by-election

    Nigel Farage is certainly a hard act to follow, but Paul Nuttall is surely exactly the sort of leader, and candidate, that UKIP needs, a straight-talking man without pretensions, and with a healthy contempt for PC nonsense.

    He does NOT mince his words. 

    Bravo UKIP MEPs! Brits Applaud Their ‘Shocking Disrespect!’ 

    Brits need more of his calibre in the House of Commons.

    The Stoke by-election will be an educational experience, for Jeremy Corbyn, at least, if his leadership of the Labour Party gets an appropriately red card from the voters.



    Likewise, and perhaps more tellingly, it could be a bitter blow for one arrogant rich ranter ( an ‘investment manager’ and, since we have mentioned educational experience, a former pupil of Roedean, one of the UK’s poshest private schools – just listen to those plummy vowels!)

    Yes, Gina Nadira Miller.

    But we mustn’t investigate her background too closely.  

    She’ll get VERY angry. She has bristled indignantly at that prospect – she said “everyone has a past” and it was “totally irrelevant” to the importance of the case.

    And she totally lost it on Channel Four the other day, when UKIP’s Paul Flynn correctly identified her political/cultural provenance as the London Elite, who are, undoubtedly, as he said, “used to getting their own way.”
