"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."

Totally Hacked Off

After climbing back to earth from the dizzy depths of the depression that was Cameron's speech yesterday, I'm fed up.  I just seem to keep repeating myself.  I'm also finding myself saying, 'but I posted on that last week/month/year ...' when I come across lots of stuff.  In other words, I'm fed up today - fed up & angry though not yet resigned.  The msm is a disgraceful waste of space - the lobbyists and sycophantic journalists in thrall to power and money.  If you look around and read the newspapers, visit EU websites and hear politicians' lies and spin you can see the spider's web, the pincer movement we're being caught up in.  Look at Common Purpose, look at the Fabians and their close relations, the Islamic Radicals.

"You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it."  Thatcher.
"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."  Churchill, of course.

I will repeat myself:  If Cameron gets in, there will be no honeymoon period.

Chin up!  This is from last October:



What's it called when someone apparently sabotages their own plans?  Calling it 'electoral suicide' might be too strong and 'shooting oneself in the foot' doesn't quite do it justice.  How about 'beating the electorate over the head with conflicting propositions and then sitting back and blaming everyone else when you can't do what you said you would but you knew that would be the case all along'?

I think that just about sums up Cameron's position on the EU but perhaps 'sabotage' isn't the word, perhaps it's been the art of politicking from the outset.

politic adj 1 said of a course of action: prudent; wise; shrewd. 2 said of a person: cunning; crafty. 3 old use political. See also body politic. verb (also politick) (politicked, politicking) intrans, derog to indulge in politics, especially to strike political bargains or to gain votes for oneself.

After looking at all the evidence M'Lud I submit that Mr 'same destination; different path' Cameron has always wanted Britain to be in the EU. Ted Heath begged our way into it (I wish he were alive today.  Still, come the revolution we can always dig him up and hang his bones on a gibbet in Parliament Square), Thatcher discovered what it was all about and stood her ground as best she could, John 'Maastricht' Major didn't.

The Trades Unions wanted to join the EU because they saw the EU as giving them more power -  they imagined an EU-wide strike of, eg, postal workers.  I bet they'll be amongst the first on the bonfire of vanities.

The Labour Party, composed as it is of Fabians, ex-Marxists, ex-Trots, and advocates of Common Purpose & Agenda21, have always been sneaky International Socialist backdoor-dogs.  Some are useful idiots and the majority, Miliband, Brown, Balls, Straw et al, will find they are expendable.

Back to Cameron:  In less than twelve months we have gone from this, which was a holding position, to this, when his prevarications were noted by the msm, and this, which we knew would be the outcome.   In fairness, he has always said, "If the Lisbon Treaty has not been ratified by all 27 countries by the time there is a Conservative government, we will hold a referendum."  When pushed, the line has always been, "We will not let matters rest there."

There was never any way on God's earth that the Lisbon Treaty would not be fully ratified by all twenty-seven countries if/when the Conservatives formed a government next May and Cameron knew it, even as he wrote to Vaclav Klaus asking him to delay the Czech signing (nice try, Dave).

We can expect sudden and major changes in our Constitution to become self-evident - things done behind closed doors will come out into the open and why not?  After all, in the words of EU Leaders, this Treaty is the final treaty and the EU won't need another: it is self-amending.  Cameron's promise to put further treaties to the British people is hollow and he knows it.  He must know it because even I know it.  I think I'm right in saying that after Lisbon there's only one way to go back and that's to repeal the the 1972 European Communities Act.

That's the Party I'll vote for - the one that gives the British people a voice because I'm heartily sick of this damned stuff - look below at the Post of the Week from CharonQC or if you're feeling more poetic and can stand being kicked in the solar plexus, read Philip Pullman's powerful statement on the state of our country.

What will it take?  When will GK Chesterton's Silent People speak?

  1. You know my opinion of longtime but, to give it another twirl

    Cameron is a big girls blouse.

    He is no leader in any Military / Classic Political sense.

    If he were an officer in the Army during the WW I he would be found in some Chateau , miles from the front where true leadership was needed and displayed, pouring over maps and quaffing Champagne with his oysters.

    The bastard offspring of Blair and not half as good as the original bastard.

    God help England.

  2. "If he were an officer in the Army during the WW I he would be found in some Chateau , miles from the front where true leadership was needed and displayed, pouring over maps and quaffing Champagne with his oysters."

    You've got something there B - I can see him twirling his moustache. So, who's your choice then (given you have one)?

  3. I don't have a vote but in England it would be

    "None of the bastards above"

    In Scotland, easy

    SNP for me.

    At least in Scotland, as one says in Glasgow, "We know where you live and don't forget that"

  4. Meanwhile, back at the Batcave


    The Financial Times is reporting that UK Government debt is being traded at prices that suggest that the investors are treating it as less than AAA rated. British bond yields have gone back above Italian yields and are approaching those of Portugal, putting the UK right in among those countries so condescendingly referred to as PIIGS for a time by some who thought themselves superior.

    It is all going pear shaped.

    Buy Chinese Rimimbi

  5. Wrong Bugger, seems that the chinese propeerty boom is about to spectacularly collapse.

    "Cameron's promise to put further treaties to the British people is hollow and he knows it." That is when Cameron and 'his' torys lost my support.

  6. Yes Bugger I have been following that quite closely.

    However the Rimibi is still going to be the de fact currency in SE Asia.

    Where has all the gold gone? Who is the biggest miner and user of tungsten? Who has cornered the forward market in all industrial metals?

    There may be a bubble but remember China is one economic zone. If they are going to do infrastructure projects, which is the best way to inject cascade down economic stimulus, they have loads of our foreign exchange, a planning system that takes nano seconds compared to our and no public hearings to clog up the decision making process.

    The march forward is unstoppable; it is just a question of when not if.

    The Rimimbi will have to accrue and will not anyway go down.

    I have family in China and the Government is turning on foreigners and foreign companies. They have our intellectual property, by theft and osmosis and are about to go to phase II, the consumerisation of China and the switch to domestic consumption, not export.

    The empty flats and homes in China will be filled by the Chinese.

    If the West has any sense right now the manufacturers should be getting out of China and into India pronto

  7. Bugger so, it was Banned I was addressing.

    Too early

  8. I thought you said you weren't an SNP supporter, Bugger?

    Hi Banned, I see we're down 7 points against the Zimbabwe dollar since the beginning of January as well. I read an article over the w/end about China's 'economic nationalism'. Trade wars anyone?

  9. I said not a member.

    Too much of a maverick to be in any political party
