"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."

A Rant: Biting My Nails & Tearing Out My Hair

"It's the sort of personality driven rumour-mongering reporting that passes for journalism in this country.

"I'd much rather, if you don't mind me saying so, focus on the content of Gordon Brown and President Obama's meetings, the very serious issues that they've been sitting down and discussing," he said.


If you don't mind me saying so, Poppet, when I started this blog it was to comment on Parliament, PMQs & the EU.  I just wanted a place to dump EU .pdfs and other Westminster Parliamentary stuff online.  Then the updates and new directives kept coming thick & fast so I posted more until, eventually, here we are today, eight months on, still talking about Peter Mandelson.


Henry 11

"...a compelling call for resistance in the face of intimidation. Written against the backdrop of rising Fascism in twentieth-century Europe, Eliot’s classic verse play is as relevant now as it ever was."

Except... I think the fascists are on the verge of losing - again.  Like millions of others, my grandfather and father fought against fascism in 1914 and 1938 (Dad was in the TA).  The EU + Obama = International Socialists = fascism/communism/communitarianism/authoritarianism - call it whatever 'ism' you will it just adds up the the biggest 'ism' of  all: totalitarianism - it's the only way so many people can be controlled so easily.

Britain stood alone until 1942 against this fascism.  I don't suppose at the time people realised how momentous it was but that's often the way of life.  "Oh, bugger, don't tell me we're off to war just to defend Poland," was a cry probably heard in many British kitchens up and down the land but we went and we won with the help of our Allies at the cost of many lives.

Now we have another war - not only Afghanistan/Iraq/Pakistan/Somalia (you read it here first, folks - and watch out for The Yemen), but a home-front war against our own government, and I'm not sure where the Allies are any more:  'Europe' never was an ally; Obama's America isn't so who do we  look to if not to ourselves?  The first blow in this convoluted tale is probably against the EU.

The first step on the road back to sanity should be that unelected people like Mandelson, Vadera, Scotland, West, Sugar et al, can't be parachuted into a Life Peerage and have a say on government policy.  The Fabians and International Socialists have had over a hundred years of 'one step at a time' policies but that luxury won't be afforded to you and me.  We've almost reached the stage where something either 'is' or 'isn't': governments & their taxpayer-funded quangos and lobby groups now ask, 'do you agree with us or are you in denial'?

According to this government's lights I'm a "denier" and therefore an extremist.  Give me back my voice or I will take it back.

  1. Everyone has perceptual bias, so there's no shame in what you write, which is quite good.

    Even the whiny left wing militant trolls have a biased viewpoint, but well, trolls do as trolls does. Trolls do nothing, which is all they are good for. Except vilify and demonise, they are great at that. But then, so do we where Liebour are concerned, which is well deserved on their part, and at least we have evidence to present while the lefty loony whiners have mere trolling agendas... that's our difference.

  2. My bias is empirical - plus it's online for anyone to see. I've come to a point VotR, when I just don't care what anyone in authority says. I no longer recognise their authority to tell me what to do.

  3. No one can make you do anything you don't want to do. The authorities are only in charge until the revolution. If this lot in power escape to EU positions or Quangos like rats leaping from the metaphorical Liebour ship HMS Titanic then so be it, but at least they will not be in power anymore. And lets face it, after Iraq, Afghanistan, bills that support racism and sexism, unelected leadership, the destroyed pound, expenses scandals, previously unseen levels of unemployment, infinities of evidence backed gripes, etc - they have earned it.

    Our 21st century revolution would be a voting massacre of the parliamentary Labour party on general election day. If they are brave enough to hold one...

  4. GV,

    excellent you've come to that point that makes you most dangerous to them.

    In the movie Theif(Phekkin' good film music an' all) the Jimmy Caan character explains how yiu have to make yourself invulnerable in prison, you've got to take your beating but eventually "they" realise you've gone into another world that is lethal to "them".

  5. And you, Incoming? You, VotR? Ultimately it is down to the individual to defend society.

  6. Ah well, GV, in my case as a certain supermarket chain may advertise, every little helps.

    I'd rather vent burning out fury at Labour than defend society, but we all have our reasons for what we do, noble or otherwise.

  7. VotR, no-one defends 'society' as it is - a manipulated mass of Blair/Brown governance. Don't burn out, we need voices like yours.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Alas, GV, I am way past the point of burned out, but if it doesn't destroy you, it can make you stronger.

    I'm on the other side of burned out, much to the annoyance of the far left and even the far right, as such a state allows plenty more to come, and the longer Labour delay the general election, the more fun and defence of a worthwhile society there will be.

  9. Come on VotR - I read your blog and you're not burned out at all - just a bit pissed off in a slightly English sort of way like most of us. Labour doesn't have a chance at the GE but what of our future within the EU and the NWO?

    'What can't be cured must be endured' will not be my epitaph - I doubt it will be yours.

  10. Chaps as I've said before the only way is through the ballot box.

    Nothing else with this crowd will do it.

    It is an ancient, tried and tested way for civilsed society to progress.

    WE ABANDONED BB. BB'LL NOT FAIL US IF WE ALL TURN UP NEXT TIME SUITABLY PREPARED.

    If we are anywhere near success you can expect us to go out one by one, they'll come and get us.

    It's got to be done.

  11. We'll see about the EU after the Irish referendum. But I was burned out to a point at one stage, GV, that time is gone. One step at a time, as they say. If Labour can be eliminated at the polls, the EU is next, not necessarily targetting the EU, but encouraging the UK to leave the Eurozone and keep pound sterling as its currency, which is most certainly on the agenda.

    Inc, let them come. It is only a matter of time before the hunters realise they have become the hunted. Especially next year, as it gets nearer the GE.

  12. Not the response I'd expect from you Incoming!
    If votes don't win the day in 7 months' time, we will.
    VotR - I sympathise but I've blogged about it in the past so it's not a surprise. There may come a point when we face a long-haul.

    ReplyDelete
  13. GV,

    if votes don't win the day in...whenever.

    We start from scratch, everything will then be in the air.

    That's one of the reasons I think our chaps are kept out of the country in such large numbers. They know what's what.

    I fear we are approaching our Vortigern moment and even if King Arthur turns up it's all gone.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Incoming - Vortigern made mistakes that we can learn from and Arthur is a romantic myth. Here & now is where we are. It isn't a Vortigern moment but it's decisive and we *can* win.

  15. GV,

    last chance saloon.

    Then I'm going over to the dark side.

    Scary laugh that I can't do without two bottles of black rum inside me.

    ;-)

  16. You can splice the mainbrace as much as you like but when it comes to it, we'll be on the same side of the barricade.
