    Yorkshire Learns Appeasement Doesn’t Pay? 

    Most British people are more perceptive, or at least care more about fair play, than the drips and dolts on the House of Commons committee…

    Colourful Language And Clarke’s Resignation! 

    …who crawled and capered to The Infamous Cricket Whiner.

    Cricket Whiner ‘Creepy?’ A Cover-Up? 

    We certainly made clear our contempt for those MPs, ‘the horrids in high places,’ like Julian Knight MP….

    Can The P-Word Harm Kids? 

    …and for that Patel prattler….

    Fightback In Yorkshire Enrages Cricket-Whiner Fans! 

    Lord Kamlesh Patel has accused a group of Yorkshire members of attempting to “delay and derail” Headingley’s reinstatement as an international venue….

    ….because they believe the club is being “sacrificed on the altar of Black Lives Matter”

    As indeed it has been!

    GREAT to read that word’s getting out about all that.


    Your Contrition Is Admirable!” 

    How sickening, that self-righteous guff

    Those Yorks dorks?

    Englishmen at cricket

    What were they like, gloating at the triumph of wokery over Englishry…

    Now somebody else has spoken up!

    Taste some truths in this extract, then read the whole linked story.

    ….Rafiq did not lose his career to racism after all (the DCMS simply allowed that one to pass), along with accusations that Rafiq himself used racially-insensitive language in addition to his already admitted antisemitism.

    What is this? It is certainly not justice.

    Oh that Patel, the worst chairman in the club’s history, had been true to his word in November when he said that he wanted to get to the bottom of what had happened and to take everyone on a journey to make Yorkshire, in his words, “the greatest cricket club in the world”.


    Sadly, it is no longer the greatest cricket club even in Yorkshire anymore and never will be until Patel finds the decency to apologise publicly to the staff he has sacked, and for the careers he has ruined without anything like properly tested evidence, before clearing his desk. https://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/sport/cricket/patel-should-apologise-publicly-to-the-yorkshire-staff-he-has-sacked-and-then-clear-his-desk-chris-waters-3845110

    Cricket Whiner Called Out – ‘P’ For Prevarication? 

    The report below raises an interesting question about the Cricket Whiner, not so much about the P-Word, which we heard bandied around so childishly….

    The P-Word Matters – Proof! 

    …and which might now be re-explained as PREVARICATION..

    (Definition of prevaricate  – intransitive verb. : to deviate from the truth : equivocate)

    Ex-Yorkshire club psychologist rubbishes Azeem Rafiq claim that white players were prioritised

    ‘I can genuinely say that Yorkshire had the best psychological and well-being provision that I’ve seen in team sport,’ Dr Mark Nesti said.. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/cricket/2022/08/26/ex-yorkshire-club-psychologist-rubbishes-azeem-rafiq-claim-white/

    …yes, not so much about whether ANYTHING that little grinch had to say was believable, but whether the horrids in high places, like Julian Knight MP….

    Calling Solihull Tories! De-Select Julian Knight

    Yes, the very same fellow we noticed a while ago, a keen collabo with the self-pitying creep we call the Cricket Whiner.

    …who made such a song and dance about harmless banter, yes, whether THEY truly swallowed all his chip-on-the-shoulder chuntering…

    Can The P-Word Harm Kids? 

    …about a word  ( ‘Paki’) that was never any more ‘offensive’ than Paddy, or Jock, or Geordie or Teuchter ( which is what Lowland Scots call Highland Scots)

    As I wrote months ago…

    …none of us who habitually used the P-Word

    Cricket Whiner ‘Creepy?’ A Cover-Up? 

    …to describe our destination when we told friends or family we were nipping round to the P-Word shop to buy fags…( NB not sexual maladjusts!)

    Can The P-Word Harm Kids? 

    …none of used that word nastily. The nastiness comes only from one side in this sorry saga, the ‘diversity’ deadbeats, both in the House of Commons…

    Colourful Language And Clarke’s Resignation! 

    …and the millionaire elite.

    A True Englishman, Unbowed By Cricket Whiner Smears 


    So there are still some folk with backbones in England –

     – such a welcome contrast to those who ‘step back’ when bullied by scum..


    Uppity BBC ‘BAME’ Berks Gloating?

    …when to ‘step back’ actually means to ‘bow down.’

    No bowing to bullies, no kow-towing to cowardly collabos, for Mr. Andrew Gale, who..

    …has sensationally refused to attend the disciplinary hearing into the Yorkshire racism scandal after finally breaking his silence to deny “each and every” accusation against him and denounce the England & Wales Cricket Board’s “witch hunt” into the case…

    Let’s Hope Yorkshire Goes Bankrupt! 


    So much for justice!

    Sure, they’ll get some money, BUT…

    These people deserve to be reinstated, with fulsome apologies for the way they were cast out….

    …amid the sound and fury over The Cricket Whiner’s self-pitying sludge.

    Creepy little Azeem likely won’t lose a wink of sleep over innocent lives up-ended…



    …nor will we ever, probably, get to the bottom of the sordid story…



    … so I personally hope that Yorkshire sooner rather than later goes bankrupt.

    This arrogant MP and his select(?) Commons Committee have been an integral part of the Cricket Whiner’s campaign against Yorkshire.

    Now I urge the de-select measur again, as the ‘Conservative’ law-maker creep rages at the rebels who are using the law to fight the uppity Lord Patel.

    Read this!

    I have no idea what kind of people constitute Tory Party membership in Knight’s Solihull constituency, but they should start the removal process ASAP.

    Jellyfish Johnson too should disown his ranting…


    ..unlikely, alas, given how Bojo’s at ease with woke weaselry.

    Otherwise, one hopes, in the next election, he’ll face an opponent, perhaps from Reform UK…



    …or anybody with no time for pinko pukes who obsess over the “P-Word.”

      I am in full agreement with everything you say about about this Knight, except that last part, about Reform UK.
      They’re not a bad party, but I always get the impression they are timid.
      The better choice to go up against Tory leftists would be UKIP.
      They are still around and I like them.

    Darren ‘DIY Diversity’ Gough Prattles! 

    Much ado about Darren Gough taking over as some sort of generalissimo in Yorkshire, where a wholesale dismissal of Yorkshire staff took place.

    Englishmen at cricket

    He fails to condemn that unjust purge, saying only that it was tough on the victims but that he’s glad the Night of the Long Knives wasn’t up to him!

    ‘The club made the call to sack 16 people and on a human level I was concerned about that because I know quite a few of them,’ he says. ‘It was a massive decision and I have huge empathy for them.

    ‘I’ve spoken to a few and it was horrible but the club thought it was necessary in terms of the culture to make that call. I had nothing to do with it because I wasn’t here then and I wouldn’t have wanted to be part of that decision.

    What does that even mean?

    His reluctance to speak up on the morality of what was done to innocent employees – what the Hell had they done wrong?  – does make one wonder.

    So he’s signing up to a project launched on the basis of injustice yet he has no opinion?


    What’s gone on in cricket is frankly outrageous.  So much distress because one little whiner couldn’t take the banter!

    On and on it goes, Gough talking about Gary Ballance as a puffed-up prefect might talk down to a wayward first-year high school kid.

    .. we talked to Gary about his actions and behaviour. He understands and he’s educating himself.

    How pathetic!

    Will he get a diversity degree when he’s done educating himself, awarded by the Equality Commission, subject to taking graduation vows as below?

    ‘If I call a Scot a tight-fisted Jock, I will cut my tongue out!’ 

    I will never address anyone from the island of Ireland as a Paddy!’

    ‘If I hear an Australian call anyone a Pom, I will remonstrate at once!’

    ‘I will call the police if I hear the P-Word!’


    OMG, another one?

    Who Volunteers For The Lubianka? 

    DIY Brainwash Kits soon to be handed out at every sports club in the land?

    He’s going to be part now of an inclusive and welcoming environment that we’re building at Yorkshire…

    ‘Inclusive and welcoming?’


    Except, good sir, for those victims of the purge!

    Who Volunteers For The Lubianka? 

    It’s a little like those broken figures at 1930s show trials.who confessed to all kinds of unimaginable ‘offences,’ this mea culpa from Mike Vaughan…


    Englishmen at cricket


    …described, no doubt accurately, as an ‘aggressive batsman,’ who, we hear, ‘took a more proactive step.’

    For the past three months, he has been engaged in a diversity and inclusion course, interrogating…


    Yes, the report in the Telegraph says, ‘interrogating‘ – a word you read about in spy novels, evoking images of the Lubianka!


    The building on Lubyanka used to be the KGB's reception office. Source: Vladimir Fedorenko / RIA Novosti

    The Lubianka, former KGB HQ, in Moscow


    But the 21st century version is infinitely more subtle, no hooded KGB hoodlums, no finger-nails, because Vaughan was…

    Interrogating himself on race and gender!’


    Is this the same breed of Brit who formed the Thin Red Line, or were hailed as Hearts of Oak?

    Or went over the top in the Great War?



    Or even the venerable gallants of Dad’s Army?

    Those who survived such warfare were fortunate – not for them the joys of re-education ‘addressing such questions as unconscious bias, equity and white privilege.:




    Carefully crafted hogwash,

    These are tricky subjects for anyone to address…

    Because they are woko-loco phantasms, inventions, designed by their cultural marxist creators to advance the BLM agenda.



    …not least a 47-year-old, middle-class white man whose leadership qualities, captaining Yorkshire and England, with all the plaudits that come with it..

    No more ‘plaudits’ for this man, please.

    He might better be held up as an example of how NOT to respond to little chip-on-shoulder creeps whining about the P-Word!



    Instead of giving the creep hell, the batsman turns out to have abased himself.

    So I no longer feel sorry for Vaughan, who, you may remember, was chopped by the BBC, not for any proven wrong-doing but only because he was ‘accused’ by the Cricket Whiner of…


    Some trivial banter, nothing disgraceful, nothing like that BBC ‘star’ Rajan, who was welcomed aboard despite clear evidence of his hostility to the monarchy.

    BBC double-standards at their worst!

      It is disappointing that he has given in to these people.
      As you say, ‘white privilege’ is a lie and ‘unconscious bias” is BS.
      What a sad way to wind up.

    Fightback In Yorkshire Enrages Cricket-Whiner Fans! 

    Lord Kamlesh Patel has accused a group of Yorkshire members of attempting to “delay and derail” Headingley’s reinstatement as an international venue….

    ….because they believe the club is being “sacrificed on the altar of Black Lives Matter”.


    And given the way Yorkshire’s been subjected to insult and abuse by fans of the uptight Cricket-Whiner…

    Fight Fake ‘Inclusion’ That Dictates Exclusion!

    ..much of whose self-serving whines were hardly substantiated…

    Cricket Whiner ‘Employers Must Deal With Any Who Dispute My Yarn

    …who’s going to dispute what the resistance says about the baneful impact of the racist BLM on their sport?

    But those staunch Yorkshiremen fighting back have not only got the noble lord to contend with.

    Listen to the arrogant Tory MP, the chairman of the House of Commons ‘digital, culture, media and sport committee!’

    He’s a person we have heard about previously…


    Official portrait of Julian Knight MP crop 2.jpg

    Julian Knight MP


    …ex-BBC, and a Remainer,  whose complicity when leftists were bullying a man for talking plain English made me suggest he should be deselected by his local party!

    Colourful Language And Clarke’s Resignation! 

    Knight is currently ery vexed that mere cricketers should get in the way of the ‘agenda’ his ally Lord Patel wants to ram through!

    But that’s not quite how he chose to put it.

    “It is deeply concerning if what is being reported is an accurate picture of what’s happening at Yorkshire County Cricket Club.

    Lord Patel talks of an agenda to undermine the progress that’s being driven by him to tackle racism. Anyone seeking to subvert his work must be called out and held to account… “


    Held to account?

    For exercising their rights as members, distinguished members at that?

    Presumably, Kamel’s chagrin arises from the fact that an ‘Emergency General Meeting (EGM) ‘expected to confirm governance changes in the wake of the Azeem Rafiq racism scandal…”had not been properly called under club rules. “

    And whose fault was that?

    Perhaps significantly, there are ‘claims from former chairman Robin Smith that the process to appoint Patel as the new chairman last year was “invalid.” ‘

    More questions than answers!

    Patel, a former Labour minister, is an educated man, so why this bizarre use of the English language –

    “I made a conscious decision that we would focus on a positive future for Yorkshire and remediate the inherited issues.. “



    what the Hell does ‘remediate the inherited issues’ mean?

    Normal people would say ‘fix the problems’ or something like that. 

    It hardly helps clarify the situation!

    Fight Fake ‘Inclusion’ That Dictates Exclusion!

    At last some honest Brits show signs of standing up to the Cricket Whiner’s unsubstantiated whining….

    …and, just as heinous, their lordly enforcer, who prattles about ‘inclusive’ while excluding innocent staff.

    As foul a double standard as UK Pravda, the biased bigots of the BBC…



    …who similarly shrill about ‘inclusion, ‘ yet EXCLUDE a cricket star,  Mr. Vaughan, because of unproven smears by that whining git.



    And what about this?

    England Test captain Joe Root stands by his statement that he cannot recall seeing any instances of racism at Yorkshire – but says he and cricket must learn from Azeem Rafiq’s allegations and the subsequent fallout.



    If he never saw or heard anything amiss, why crawl before that cur?

    Cricket Whiner ‘Creepy?’ A Cover-Up? 

    Remember the Cricket Whiner?

    Cricket Whiner ‘Employers Must Deal With Any Who Dispute My Yarn!’

    I prefer not to use the self-righteous Paddy’s name…

    .. who’s no Paddy, yet it’s apparently okay to use ethnic P-words except if they refer to individuals of Pakistani ancestry, in which case it’s “racist” – go figure!



    …but since a new revelation requires an extract fron the media report, here we go.

    Ms Ajith described the alleged messages from Azeem Rafiq as “creepy” when she spoke to The Yorkshire Post, adding “I was just kind of shocked by the crudity of those messages. They were just so vulgar.”

    Not nice, yeah, but certainly newsworthy!

    Strangely, however, using Google Search with the teenage girl’s name, I could only find a few entries mentioning how she has bravely spoken up! .



    Nothing from the BBC, but maybe I missed it?

    Please try….



    ….and see if the Guardian’s got the story, yeah?

    And there’s more, about one of the Cricket Whiner’s more far-fetched yarns.

    She did not dispute his claims of racism but questioned the accusations of being forced to drink by teammates as “surely that wouldn’t then mean he would be drinking alone on a flight and encouraging a 17-year-old girl to be drinking with him.”.


    Well, glug-glug-glug!

    A spokesman for Mr Rafiq told the newspaper that they were looking into the matter and couldn’t comment further at the time.

    Good work, GB News, publishing this…

    …but I must quibble with something further down their page, viz..

    Former Yorkshire spinner Rafiq has won widespread praise for his resolve in highlighting the issue of racial discrimination in cricket.


    The cry-baby has also amassed widespread contempt for his pathetic tell-tale tactics, and a lot of us think those who dispute his whines are not getting a fair deal.

    But the BBC and much of the rotten media do not seem to care about balanced reporting on this real or alleged banter.
