The whole thing is a shambles, but unfortunately Putin is right in saying that the EU should not stick its nose in, even though of course he does himself. The worst-case scenario is if the EU interferes so much that it gives Putin an excuse to roll some tanks in …. he has said that the break-up of the USSR was the greatest tragedy in his lifetime, and most Russians regard Ukraine as part of their domain. At the moment, the EU is playing an extremely dangerous game: one which could lead to the total LOSS of the Ukraine, not its liberation by the EU.
These are usually completely ignored and/or sneered at by the Franco-German Alliance, but my goodness they have just struck two big blows for sanity.
Firstly, Switzerland has decided that having 25% of its population as foreigners is enough – of course bringing down on itself a tsunami of pretentious condescension and whingeing from the EU (I wonder what France and Germany would say to having over 25% of their population as foreigners? Surely there must be a limit? Not in England of course, which apparently HAS no limit, at least as far as the Labour Party is concerned.
But secondly – and equally dramatic and unexpected – little Denmark has banned the vile and inhumane bleeding of animals before they are slaughtered, otherwise known as Halal for Muslims and kosher for Jews.
The UK of course, supinely and cravenly accedes to any old weird “religious” belief in the name of “multi-culturalism”, resulting in the native Brits having to face Halal meat shoved in their faces at supermarkets and the like, but little Denmark has struck a blow for sanity: for the precedence of animal rights over religious lunacy. HOORAY.
But the most sickening, nauseating and gut-wrenching thing about this is that Jews are accusing the Danes of anti-Semitism. Is it therefore the case that ANY criticism of Jews is “anti-semitic”? That seems a fairly ludicrous position to hold. People who object to the barbaric slaughter of animals do not object because they are anti-semitic, but because the practice is BARBARIC. It is frankly beyond belief that Jews should play the anti-semitic card. This is a betrayal of the people who helped overthrow true anti-Semitism in WWII and after. It is an accusation made in extremely bad faith, playing on the Holocaust, which has NOTHING to do with this topic AT ALL.
However, the barbaric slaughter of animals is hardly any different in essence from circumcision, which any objective alien visiting the Earth would consider to be the barbaric mutilation of helpless infants (which is what it is). The fact that this is ALSO allowed in Britain is quite staggering. Supposing the barbaric practice did not exist, and I started up a sect and announced:
“Our beliefs require us to mutilate baby boys. God demands it as part of our religion.”
I would be locked up as insane, and if I actually performed a circumcision I would rightly be banged up for 10 years. Why this is permitted is quite bizarre, and complaining about it is not “anti-semitic”, just a reflection of our disgust at the barbaric mutilation of helpless children. I was going to post a photo of a circumcised baby boy, but it was so disgusting I could not bring myself to do it, even though a picture tells a thousand words.
As For GIRLS of course, circumcision is quite rightly a CRIME, even if one to which the pathetic, PC-sodden and craven UK authorities have until recently turned a completely blind eye, this being another facet of “cultural diversity” (Yes, we are insane.) So if circumcision is illegal for GIRLS, why not BOYS?
As for the practice of male circumcision itself, it is interesting to note that many American Jews are starting to move away from the practice – not before time one would think, after two thousand years and the supposed freeing-up of the human mind during the Enlightenment. From “The Independent”:
The EU of course has stated that the Danish ban is against EU law. So far the courageous little Danes have told the EU where they can stick their law ….
… which all reminds me of how grotesque the EU really is, and how desperate it is to control everything from the centre, like some perverted Empire ….. speaking of which, here is one of my favourite Barrosso quotes:
“Sometimes I like to compare the EU as a creation to the
organisation of empire. We have the dimension of empire.”
Indeed …… and you would make a good Napoleon: short, woffly, pontificating and fascist – but at least his men loved him and he was not short of a brain cell or two …….
There is panic in the corridors of Brussels tonight as the search goes on for an EU apparatchik apparently gone insane. Specialists believe that this individual – frustrated at having nothing of any use whatsoever to do – especially of course anything that could conceivably create any wealth for Europe – has publicized what can only be described as “a cunning plan” as detailed below:
“Bankruptcy should be renamed ‘debt adjustment’, recommends Riccardo Ribera d’Alcala, the EU’s Directorate General for International Policies, who said that use of the word bankruptcy was too potent and made it difficult for people to rebuild their financial reputation.”
Indeed, heaven forbid that anyone should be stigmatized. Shame on us for having stigmatized Hitler in an earlier age. Was his upbringing taken into account? Were his human rights considered?
But this hapless individual – forever to be known hereafter as Mr Debt Adjustment – cannot take all the blame, for euphemismitis is rampant in the EU, partly one suspects to confuse the plebs. Thus it is that we have:
QE = Quantitative Easing, which in Realspeak means of course:
“more borrowing and/or printing of money designed to solve the problem of too much borrowing and printing of money; a cunning plan which has the great benefit of raising inflation to inflate away the debt and coincidentally (but who cares?) stuff the plebs out of their increasingly-worthless savings (Idiots! Everyone knows that saving is for mugs!)”
or indeed my particular favourite:
OFT = Outright Financial Transaction.
Again, one feels obliged to translate this into Realspeak, whereupon we get:
“an ordinary financial transaction (or to be more precise bung of “money” handily printed, borrowed and/or imagined by the ECB) which has been got at by the EU Marketing Department so as to sound more final, decisive and posh.”
Another favourite is:
an SPV = a special purpose vehicle, or in other words:
“EITHER a con designed to pour billions more euros down the euro black hole without the plebs realising it OR Barroso’s new limo specially designed to be resistant to tomato-throwing plebs”.
In any case, all of these brilliant EU inventions come into the well-worn category of “You could not make it up.”
And prompt the question: “When will we see an end to this criminal lunacy?”
Perhaps Mr Debt Adjustment could be put in charge of a new department: Realspeak Production. Then he could no doubt come up with some handy ideas such as:
death = permanent elsewhereness
creative accounting = theft
EU accounts = theft
remunatory readjustment = vast and totally unmerited payrise
The potential is endless.
Germany must accept higher inflation or large parts of the eurozone could be sucked into a deflationary spiral, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development has warned.
This appeared in an article in the DT today, and my reaction in the blog there was as shown below:
YOU CAN GO TO HELL, YOU FFING OVERPAID OECD MORONS.
I live in Germany and why the HELL should I have to accept higher sodding inflation to get Europe’s moronic leadership out of a fix with its fraudulent euro?
And YES, it was a GIGANTIC FRAUD.
“History tells you that monetary unions that survive are those that eventually evolve into poltical unions, otherwise they break up.”
That is EXACTLY what the founders of the euro KNEW, and they launched the euro DELIBERATELY knowing it would fail and that this would then push Germany into this decision. It was an utterly shamful act of Machiavellian and totally undemocratic fraud – indeed, a CRIME against the people of Europe, who had NO SAY in the matter, and when they DID say “NO”, had the decision taken away from them.
This is ALL designed to force European nations into a giant superstate, for which NOT ONE SINGLE CITIZEN OF EUROPE HAS VOTED – NOT ONE. I find this absolutely staggering, and it is the reason why I refer to the EU as “quasi-fascist”, since one of the key elements of fascism is an arrogant elite with too much power deciding what is good for “their”citizens and putting it into place without any kind of popular mandate.
Where this will all end, nobody knows, but it is shameful, and equally shameful is the attitude OF the shameful, who label ANYONE protesting about this as “populist” or “far right”, or in Cameron’s case “swivel-eyed loons”. Actually, Mr Cameron, it is we “swivel-eyed loons” who are doing our best to save Europe from your stupendous arrogance.
Bad enough that the EU mafia and its zealots in the national political establishment treats democracy with utter contempt:
… the EU establishment making Ireland vote again when it voted the “wrong” way
… the French elite ignoring their referendum and passing the Lisbon Treaty ANYWAY through parliament
… the EU/Franco-German Axis forcing out the democratically-elected PM of Greece for daring to suggest a referendum on the the euro for his people and replacing him with an ex ECB/EU/GS apparatchik like some Nazi Gauleiter in 1938
… the EU zealots pushing their agenda for a United States of Europe which NOT ONE SINGLE EUROPEAN CITIZEN HAS EVER VOTED FOR
… the launching of the euro KNOWING it would fai,l but believing that the failure would FORCE European nations to federate (see here: http://www.nemo-insula.net/public/EU/cases/eurocon.htm – Nobody can say they have actually HIDDEN their agenda.)
No, all this is the quasi-fascism we have come to expect from the EU but this contempt for democracy is now spreading into our OWN country:
10,000 postal votes for Labour in this last bye-election in Wythenshaw. TEN THOUSAND people who “can’t get to the polls”? What sort of banana republic is this?
It is well-known that in “Muslim areas” heads of households routinely fill in everyone’s ballot card for them and post them off.
The “secrecy” of a ballot is totally insecure with postal voting; there is no doubt whatsoever that many women in “ethnic areas” have their votes decided by men.
It is staggering that this is allowed. Labour of course, greatly enhanced postal voting KNOWING it would massively help them.
Added to this is the boundaries inconsistency, which massively favours Labour. This is from “The Daily Telegraph”:
“The geography and the electoral map are against the Tories: they need a 10-point lead on polling day to get an overall majority of one seat”. He cites research from YouGov pollster Peter Kellner showing that if Labour and the Tories were to gain an equal share of the vote at the next election, Labour would get 80 more seats.”
The Labour Party would NEVER be elected without Scotland, so in effect the English have their government decided by the Labour-voting benefits-lumpenmass in Scotland.
And the “(West-)Lothian Question” has not been solutioned, just ignored. As it is difficult to solve without their losing votes and power, Labour in particular hope it will just go away – people get bored with stuff so quickly – but it won’t, and English are feeling increasingly angry. And on a point of information, if the SCOTS can vote on whether to be independent why can’t the English do the same? Or indeed whether we want the SCOTS to be independent?
THE FPTP VOTING SYSTEM
This NEVER returns a HOC which is representative of the people. MILLIONS OF CITIZENS are NEVER represented in parliament. This is a quite extraordinarily undemocratic state of affairs. YES, there are some practical advantages of FPTP and YES, PR can be a pain, but the current system is UNDEMOCRATIC.
1951: Labour had the most votes, yet Conservatives had a majority of 15 in HOC seats.
1974: Conservatives have most votes but Labour was given the right to form a government because they had the most seats.
1983: Labour won 27.6% of the vote but 32.1% of the seats. Lib/SD 25.4% of the vote, yet 3.5% of the seats. Yes, Labour won 2.2% more votes than the Liberal-Democrats but 28.5% more seats.
In 2005, Labour won a majority of seats and thus formed a government on just 35% of the vote.
in 2010, Labour and the Tories together got only 65% of the votes, yet still had 87% of the MPs. Meanwhile only 32% of the current House of Commons were elected by 50% or more of those who voted, a record low.
FPTP encourages tactical voting, so that we NEVER KNOW the true wishes of millions of voters, who may have voted negatively to stop candidate A instead of for candidate B, for whom a vote would have been considered “wasted”.
FPTP suffocates smaller parties and thus articficially sustains larger, established ones, which inevitably become ossified. If such a system existed in business, it would be outlawed as hopelessly monopolistic and harmful.
Summary: FPTP means that:
An election NEVER produces a representative HOC.
MILLIONS of voters are unrepresented.
Because of tactical voting, We NEVER KNOW the true party-preferencies of British citizens.
THE VOTING AGE
Now Labour of course is pushing hard to lower the voting age, which is yet another cynical ploy to win more votes. Of COURSE when you are young you are idealistic and since Labour – unbelievably – manages to project itself as “the caring people’s party”, then the younger you are the more likely you are to vote for it. But how many 16 year-olds have either the knowledge about politics or the judgement required to make any sort of rational decision?
But no doubt it will pass, and the next thing will be to remove the vote from the over 80s on the basis that they are too senile to vote the right way.
All the above collectively mean that democracy in
Britain is badly flawed, which is dangerous.
It STINKS, but of course the dinosaur parties
will change nothing as it SUITS THEM.
A conference of VIPs on wildlife preservation is taking place in London. Loads of highly-paid and powerful people will jaw for hours, issue a press-conference, and then things will go on much as before.
Cynical? Well, the terrible tragedy taking place in the extermination by Homo Sapiens of beautiful and sentient creatures that do Man no harm is far from new. This has been going on for decades, even if Great White Hunters no longer return from Africa proudly boasting how many big cats, rhinos or elephants they have killed.
Driven by the lunatic ignorance and immorality of nouveaux-riche Asians, the greed of the usual poacher suspects and the poverty of many who see a rhino kill as a way to a quick fortune, the slaughter of these animals is even accelerating, notwithstanding the continual summits, resolutions, pledges and so on. Indeed, the fewer of these animals there are the higher the price for those products derived from them – a truly appalling example of supply and demand.
What is needed are:
A) … the sale and/or possession of rhino-horn and tiger products, ivory and other stuff from these creatures to be made illegal by China and other governments – AND subject to extremely harsh punishments – AND with resources made available to stamp it out instead of mere lip-service (and yacking at posh conferences)
B) … an international military task-force to hunt down and kill the poachers.
C) … a massive publicity campaign in China, Japan etc, but not a pussy-footing affair, one where the Premier comes on telly and says:
“Look, we have inherited from our tradition the practice of using animal products. This is both STUPID, since they have in fact NO KNOWN THERAPEUTIC qualities and IMMORAL, as these are sentient creatures that do us no harm. Your government has outlawed the purchase and use of products derived from these species, and will ruthlessly pursue and punish those involved in this disgusting trade.” (Don’t hold your breath ….)
None of these are exactly PC, but the way things are going at the moment we are getting nowhere. Frankly the time for fannying about yacking at summit conferences is over. These species are dying out NOW.
Another great help would be if venal, corrupt, scum-drooling African governments would show more respect for their animals, their people and indeed themselves. However, there is fat sign of that in some of the key countries, including Tanzania as highlighted last week.
An alien visitor sent to observe Homo Sapiens would surely conclude that he is a total and dangerous aberration in galactic life and should be exterminated. We KNOW that this is happening and we KNOW that it is wrong, but somehow we just cannot STOP it. Truly pathetic.
Let us hope at least that when GW and the ensuing famines, plagues and wars wipe us out that as many animals as possible will survive. Perhaps the next supermammal to evolve in a few million years will be more successful than the current one.
The Telegraph Article is excellent: full of information,
and listing the following as examples of endangered species.
One of the enduring dilemmas one faces is what to do about extremely nasty men who have managed to gain enough power to cause immense suffering.
The choice usually comes down to whether to try to talk to them (to get them to be nicer) or to kill them. On balance, experience seems to show that the former is a fatuous waste of time, so on the whole the latter seems preferable, but of course has become very non-PC.
I am thinking primarily of people such as Hitler, Sadaam Hussein, Gaddafi, Pinochet et al and of course Assad, whose regime continues to kill and hideously maim innocent civilians by the hundreds on a daily basis, those he doesn’t manage to kill being systematically starved where possible.
Assad is of course no more than a family-dynasty gangster thug with zero democratic legitimacy. His family has been oppressing Syria for four decades, and when the long-suffering people finally launched a revolution to gain their freedom – much like in the French and Russian revolutions – of which the left-wing PC brigade are so proud – the free-world gave them “non-lethal support”, a method of aid designed to ensure they die more slowly while Assad’s total control of airspace allows him to indiscriminately attack urban centres and drop barrel-bombs from helicopters onto crowded markets and other public places in those areas daring to resist his fascist rule.
However – given that the free world moronically insists on talking to Assad rather than killing him – my attention has turned to yet another (there is no shortage) very nasty person, one who is also guilty of mass-murder; not personally of course – these people rarely do the killing themselves. The person in question is Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete, allegedly complicit in the murder of 11,000 elephants annually in his country, from which the political elite is almost undoubtedly profiting from the illegal trade in ivory, now in full boom along with the growing Chinese middle-class.
“Killing elephants is not murder.” Well, this is a point of view I am increasingly loath to accept. It has been established that the DNA of chimpanzees is at least 95% the same as humans, and elephants are probably also over 90%. Let’s look at this again: they are 90% THE SAME AS US.
They are also sentient and highly-intelligent animals. (See below) Sentient? They demonstrate remarkable social behaviour and clearly demonstrate consideration for others and indeed grief. When treated with respect, they collaborate remarkably with humans, and unlike big cats for example, can become almost tame in a similar way to dogs.
However, UNLIKE humans, they do not indiscriminately murder out of greed and/or lust for power other species , let alone their OWN species. This latter practice is one in which Man is unique, which if one is a civilised Human may lead one to feel extreme loathing for one’s own species: no wonder so many of us have existential Angst.
Returning to Tanzania, the British establishment has apparently decided to try to talk to this President rather than kill him, and of course we wish the former luck, even if the chances of success seem slim. Is someone prepared to turn a blind eye at best to the slaughter of tens of thousands of such magnificent creatures likely to be converted to humanity by a lecture from Prince Charles?
The problem is of course democratic accountability, of which there is little in Tanzania – or indeed a multitude of other countries, among which Africa is well represented. Until the ordinary people rule their countries, nasty mass-murderers (they almost always are) will thrive and do immense damage. This is of course why free men should be much tougher on fascist regimes.
Speaking of which, why we continue to trade with China is a mystery. Without China’s support the truly murderous and gruesome regime of North Korea could not survive, yet we turn a blind eye to that and continue to buy Chinese goods as if there were no tomorrow – which for many in North Korea’s horrendous death-camps there certainly is not.
PS I picked up the information about Tanzania from the Daily Mail, a British news paper usually treated with utter contempt by the illiberal left-wing PC unintelligentsia – which of course just goes to show how moronic the stance of the DM snobs really is.
