Rot in Hell, Blair

June 29, 2007

What a strange week! I happened to be in London on Wednesday, around Westminster, and the place was like an ant-hill stirred with a stick – people scurrying around all excited simply because one obnoxious professional liar and conman had handed over the prime ministership to another professional conman and liar. The media overkill is a reminder of the completely unreal nature of modern British politics, where what things look like is more important than what they mean – if they mean anything, that is. As for the standing ovation given to Blair on his departure from the Commons – I despair! This was completely against all the traditions of the House; not even Churchill himself was given such a farewell – why in God’s name should that smarmy, self-satisfied, dishonest BASTARD Blair be given what Churchill was denied?! I’ll tell you why – because most people including politicians have no concept of what basic reality is any more; they are all living in some sort of TV soap opera; the ‘beloved’ Leader was departing, so according to the conventions of Americanised TV and films there *ought* to be a standing ovation – that’s what would happen in the movies – so that’s what they did. Even the bloody OPPOSITION did it, too! All those slimey little politico bastards, most of whom probably hate Blair and everyone else who’s more successful than themselves took part in a collective demonstration of the most gut-wrenchingly nauseating insincerity and arse-licking syncophancy, and probably felt really pleased with themselves afterwards. It’s the kind of thing that happened in Stalin’s Russia and Mao’s China – have we finally sunk that low in Britain, too? All it confirms to me is the deep sickness of this country and its political and social culture; what chance is there for any sort of honesty and sincerity on politics – I will go on supporting UKIP and the independence and sovereignty of the UK and its institutions, but what real hope is there, when we have reached this level of fraudulent hypocrisy and gesture politics? Parliament has become a soap opera, and politics a PR exercise masking the arbitrary manipulation of power. As for Blair – all I can say is, I hope the rest of his life is thoroughly miserable (in the company of that ghastly witch-hag, his wife, that seems fairly likely!)  and that he eventually rots in hell for ever, if there is such a place. I will always remember him as the person under whose aegis in ten years Britain ceased to be Britain and we lost the last vestiges of our ancient constitution and freedom forever.


‘Sir’ Salman? Hmmm.

June 19, 2007

I find myself in something of a quandary over the award of a knighthood to Salman Rushdie, for his ‘services to literature’ (as someone said in the paper today, “What services? What literature?”). It is true that under NuLabour knighthoods, peerages, etc. have become seriously devalueed by being presented as rewards/bribes to NuLabour supporters and funders and also used as another form of social engineering (ie; by making what’s left of the House of Lords more ‘diverse’ in appearance). But still, the idea of that smirking, useless waste of space Rushdie – whose books are pretentious, poorly-written, unreadable and deeply anti-British in the usual ‘post-colonial’ way, and were only published and praised to the skies by the ‘literati’ because of the latters’ incomprehensible sense of guilt at still being overwhelmingly middle-class and white – being knighted by Her Majesty and prancing around putting on further airs while writers and artists whose boots he is unfit to shine are ignored for being non-‘pc’, and unfashionable in actually having something worthwhile to say, is nauseating, to say the least. On the other hand, this rather unexpected parting gesture from Blair, who of course decides these things and ‘recommends’ them to the Queen, has clearly greatly annoyed those excitable Muslims again; which is basically a good thing if it demonstrates to them that the UK is prepared to stand up for the principle of free speech. Not that NuLabour have done much of that so far towards the Islamist loonies – so maybe there’s some other motive involved? I can’t decide whether my annoyance at this particularly irritating creative nonentity being so honoured outweighs my pleasure at the idea of sticking two fingers up at the hysterical ‘Islamic’ world. On the whole I think the best solution would be if some mad extremist were to take it into their mind to assassinate Rushdie just as he’s coming out of Buckingham Palace with a big self-satisfied smirk on his face! Or maybe even when he’s just going in? Unfortunately no doubt even more money will be spent, in addition to the £10 million that has already been expended, on protecting him from such an attack, so I suppose it’s a forlorn hope. Perhaps he will just choke on his own anti-British, post-colonial-chip-on-on-the-shoulder bile one of these mornings and save us all some money?


Israel and the Palestinians (again)

June 15, 2007

This week I was particularly disgusted (though not surprised) to hear about the disgraceful, racist and anti-Semitic decision of the university lecturers’ union to pursue an ‘academic boycott’ of Israeli universities. You would think that, as supposedly intelligent and educated people university lecturers of all people could see what an insult this is to the whole idea of academic freedom and that singling out the academic institutions of Israel, run not surprisingly by Jews, whilst happily supporting and nurturing those of any number of corrupt, brutal despicable dictatorships (especially Arab and Muslim ones) is blatantly and appallingly racist. But then of course many university lecturers nowadays are in fact not very intelligent or well-educated – if they were they wouldn’t be teaching in the University of Outer Scunthorpe or whatever benighted ex-poly ‘media studies’ joke of a department they do work in. They have just about the degree of ‘intelligence’ necessary to swallow the interminable anti-Israel and anti-Jewish propaganda of The Guardian and similar media outlets and vote their union into this sort of deeply offensive, fascistic intellectual pogrom. Doesn’t it make you proud to be British! On a more positive note, I have been gratified by Hamas’ and Fatah’s recent helpful attempt to wipe each other out in the Gaza strip. If only more of this sort of enlightened behaviour amongst the glorious Palestinian ‘freedom-fighters’ could be encouraged, the whole problem might sort itself out quite efficiently. Certainly with Hamas in total control in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Islamists have made absolutely sure that the peace process pursued with such persistence by the democratic state of Israel has no hope of succeeding, and thus have condemned their pathetic supporters and the rest of the unfortunate Palestinians to years and decaded more of misery and suffering. Well done chaps!

Falklands anniversary

June 15, 2007

It is the anniversary of our remarkable victory over the Argentine invaders and occupiers of the Falklands – the last time that Britain stood up for something important and earned some respect in the world. The occasion has been marked with some quite dignified ceremonies, both here and in the Falkland Islands, and a number of TV documentaries, etc. One of the BBC’s main contributions was a ‘drama-documentary’ entitled Sea of Fire. I didn’t see this, but there is a brilliant article by James Delingpole (fast becoming one of my favourite right-wing commentators) on the Spectator website which pretty much sums up the fucked-up nature of our hopeless liberal-left media in the UK today. http://www.spectator.co.uk/archive/arts/31298/history-distorted.thtml

Interesting, eh? What I like about Delingpole is he has the knack of being keenly amusing while addressing very serious points. We need more of this sort of thing.


Britishness?

June 14, 2007

In his sinister ‘bid for power’ (even though he’s been handed it on a plate by the the retiring Dear Leader), Chancellor Brown has stated he wants to encourage a sense of ‘Britishness’. He even proposes a ‘Britain Day’ to celebrate our magnificent historical and cultural identity. That sounds like such a good idea, doesn’t it? – except that it’s decades too late. What he seems not to have noticed is that he and his vile socialist bastard ‘comrades’ have spent the last 40 years or more undermining and destroying in every possible way any coherent concept of Britishness and replacing it with the ‘pc’, ‘multicultural’ b*ll*cks that passes for an ideology in their collectively addled and self-deluding brains. If Brown ever even knew what it meant to be British, he has clearly long forgotten it, along with the rest of the socialist, ‘internationalist’ hordes. What he means by ‘Britishness’ is some sort of horrendous government-designed package of contrived, trite and utterly insincere verbal diaorrhea along the lines of ‘respecting one another and contributing to community values,’ etc etc. which will then be force-fed to every state primary school pupil by the willing socialist activists and propaganda-mongers known euphemistically as ‘teachers’. Incidentally, How to be Right has an excellent entry on Gordon Brown, which ends with the immortal statement: ‘Scottish. Looks a bit like a slug with eyebrows’.


A very enjoyable book

June 14, 2007

I’ve found this absolutely brilliant new book called How to be Right, by one James Delingpole. It’s subtitled The essential guide to making lefty liberals history, and is absolutely hilarious. As well as being a very astute and pointed expose of the endless ‘pc’, ‘multicultural’, liberal-left drivel which has come close to destroying the British way of life and normal sane ways of thinking about anything over the last ten years of appalling socialist misrule. It is essential and highly entertaining reading for anyone who cares about this country or indeed western civilisation and hasn’t been intellectually lobotomised by government and media newspeak. I am sure I shall refer to it again, but here are some wonderful random samples:

‘ACCESS: Isn’t it tragic that people from council estates hardly ever go to the opera? Isn’t it a crying scandal that museum and gallery attendance remains so stubbornly white and middle-class? Isn’t it a national disaster that only a tiny percentage of the population regularly visits the theatre?

No – it’s bloody brilliant. It means we live in a country where we’re still free to make our own cultural choices. ……rather than having them rammed down our throat by the State…..

ANTI-RACISM: Principal topic in all state primary schools

HUMAN RIGHTS: Food, shelter and warmth and – what was the other one? Oh yeah – that’s it: the right to hijack a planelod of terrified Afghans, fly to Britain and live there indefinitely at taxpayers’ expense because, hey, Afghanistan’s, full of people who hijack planes and stuff…….

LITTLE ENGLANDER: (n.) Idiot who stubbornly refuses to accept that higher taxes, greater bureaucracy, loss of national sovereignty and the introduction of wave upon wave of pointless, meddling, irritating, pettifogging regulations are just what Britain needs.

ENVIRONMENT: Principal topic in all state primary schools

ENVIRONMENTALISM: Bossy new world religion based on the self-flagellating principle that unless we make things worse for ourselves things cannot possibly get better.

RECYCLING: Principal topic in all state primary schools’

and so on. It’s a great read, and most refreshing. I am somewhat encouraged that books like this are being written, published and sold by comparatively young writers in Britain today. It indicates that all is not quite lost – perhaps there’s some hope that eventually this and other books of the same tendency can bring about a revolution in fashions of thinking and some sort of conservative renewal that could yet save us. I’m not wildly optimistic, but still, it’s nice to think there might be some hope.
