"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Brown-Nosing

I wasn't going to post about Kennedy but Gordon Brown has been spouting yet more inane, sycophantic drivel in this Boston Globe article so I thought I'd dig this up about Ted Kennedy on Chappaquiddick, Noraid and the honorary knighthood.
Brown: "His abiding interest in an Irish settlement helped the United Kingdom enormously. He was a massive force in bringing the factions together to make peace in Northern Ireland possible. This was one of the many reasons why this year Her Majesty The Queen awarded Kennedy an honorary British knighthood."
Sanctimonious claptrap from Brown .  I've stopped being amazed at the capacity of Brown & his mentors/co-politico-religionists to redefine truth to their own peculiar way of thinking.

Later today he's meeting the Pakistani PM as part of  Zardari's 3-day trip to Britain again at Drowning Street so no doubt there'll be another Aid package announced.

  1. I've reached the stage where I can't be bothered to read/watch his drivel, because it's all stage-managed bollocks.

    If Brown says X is so, you can be sure that it is not.

    Matthew Parris reckons Brown has already resigned (metaphorically). I'm inclined to agree.

    What else would explain his uncharacteristic absence from the media in the past month.

    Looking forward to the conferences.

  2. Yes, me too Fausty. We've been saying for a long time that he's only in it for whatever personal glory he can snatch from Britain's downfall. What interested me about this is that it was written for the Boston Globe rather than for domestic media.

  3. You know what I really dislike about this whole Kennedy love-in is that all the mainstream media all over the world adore him - all because he was a decent politician and champion of healthcare reform (a rare find in america) - his support for irish nationalism is put aside

    Maybe rightly so as he never openly supported militants or funded the IRA, he just whipped up support and other people's money for it, but nevertheless how can Britain give an award to an Irish nationalist? It's against our national interest, you may as well be giving a knighthood to Gerry Adams

  4. Hi T, Noraid had a link with gun-running or arms smuggling as well as funding for terrorists' families. Kennedy certainly had the kid-glove treatment after the 2 older brothers were shot - someone smoothed his passage through politics for him.

  5. I'm still glad the bastard's dead, GV, and I would LMAO if Snotty fell under a moving train for all of the reasons mentioned above!

  6. Hi BS - we can see his memory being whitewashed in front of us right now by the likes of Brown. Very few in the msm have mentioned kopechne, the rape (nephew), noraid and so on. The Kennedy family were a self-made Irish-American dream.
