The Senseless Census

Gruff thanks to Harry Hook at The Final Redoubt for the link to the video, and Gruff apologies to him for omitting the 'hat-tip'.

I was in my cups when I posted this piece and, having now sobered up, I thought it best to change its title to something less seasoned and have done so.

Cameron's Swansong?

Reading this and directed thence to this, and searching for heaven knows what, I came across this:

and thought of this:

And now the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend I'll say it clear
I'll state my case of which I'm certain

I've lived a life that's full
I travelled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Regrets I've had a few
But then again too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Yes there were times I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out, I faced it all
And I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now as tears subside
I find it all so amusing

To think I did all that
And may I say not in a shy way
Oh no, oh no, not me
I did it my way

For what is a man what has he got
If not himself then he has not
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

Yes it was my way

Surely Grooovey Dave's last rites cannot be long delayed? This isn't a sweary blog but will anyone condemn me for exclaiming, in exasperation, 'WHAT A FUCKING TWAT'.

What have the long suffering people of England done to deserve yet another Scotch Prime Minister who obviously does not know his arse from his McElbow?

Gruff thanks to Harry Hook, at The Final Redoubt, yet again, for the link to the laugh.

More From Douglas Murray, and A Little from Mark Steyn

I have no idea what prompted the references to Churchill. Perhaps they are some sort of antipodean joke about 'Poms', which may well be the case since Mark Steyn is not averse to the occasional, not to say distinctly odd, disparaging remark about our green and pleasant land, parts of which have been made 'grey and dingy', most of which is still brilliantly verdant however. That notwithstanding he has made some pertinent observations on the evil twins of of cultural relativism and multiculturalism.

Here's Mr Steyn:

Phil Dolan: This Week's Little Piggy!

The Little Piggy Award (cue Little Piggy fanfare) is a recent innovation and I'm delighted to offer the very first Pox Anglorum Little Piggy of The Week award to pig faced Phil Dolan, who has taken the terminally acquiescent and complacent sheeple of South Somerset for a princely £569,000 of our 'Briddish' pounds.
Here's a picture of the trough grubbing, swill swilling, pig-faced tub of tax payers' lard and his humble sty:

Swill Dolan, this weeks Little Piggy, and sty.

I will be delighted to publish a confirmed report, with video, of the death squeals of Swill, preferably recorded as the bastard chokes and kicks while hanging by a piano wire noose from a lamp post.

Gruff thanks to EU Referendum for the link to the story, and to the Daily Telegraph for the photograph.

The Voice of Reason

Douglas Murray, director of The Centre for Social Cohesion, showing the sort of intellectual leadership many concerned and generally moderate citizens of England have literally been crying out for for decades past. When the clear and confident voice of reason speaks in such unequivocal tones those not so well placed nor well equipped can argue with authority that there is undeniably a problem and know with certainty that the problem is at last clearly recognised and understood.

The threat posed to western societies by the growth of Mohammedanism within Europe is cause for alarm to anyone and everyone who cherishes our rich and varied European experiences, histories, cultures, customs, traditions and values, all of which form our common heritage and our common bond, and not just to those, such as the EDL, predisposed to less cerebral, although by no means less valid, expressions of concern. Islam does not welcome intellectual enquiry and those who do have as much to fear as the unemployed and excluded white working classes of Luton and Bradford and a hundred other English towns and cities. Speeches such as Mr Murray's are a welcome and long overdue encouragement to the hitherto grudgingly acquiescent silent majority who have suffered the consequences of policies over which they had no control and fear for a future they are not allowed to shape.

There was a time when programmes such as The BBC's This World - 2010-2011 would generally have been accepted as an honest and impartial exposé of a serious threat to the long term interests of the various European peoples. Now we know differently and that time is past. All the BBC, and The Guardian, and Searchlight, and UAF achieved with that programme was to bring Geert Wilders to a wider audience, for which they must be thanked, and pitied, for the BBC is no longer respected and revered as a source of disinterested truth. Now it is despised as the propaganda machine of a malign ideology that seeks to destroy all we hold dear and what it tells us is black we know must therefore be white. Programmes such as This World - 2010-2011 are no more than the last desperate punts of a desperate gambler who sees that he is finally out of money having long been out of luck.

The last general election was a great disappointment to many who thought that fundamental change was then more than a will o' the wisp but there are encouraging signs that the winds are starting to blow fair and the knowledge that moderates are becoming militant gives fresh heart to all of us. We can see now that we are not alone. Whatever and however we think, we know that millions in England think as we do and we need be silent and acquiescent no longer.

Change is coming and it will be on our terms, not theirs, whoever they may be.

Gruff thanks, yet again, to Harry Hook, of The Final Redoubt for the link to the video at YouTube.

Little Piggies.

May I humbly suggest that the following might make an amusing link whenever a report of some publicly funded trough grubber, or lesser apparatchik, prompts a blogger to vent his spleen?

'In their lives there's something lacking, what they want's a damned good whacking!'

Mark Menzies MP: What Bloody Use is He to The Tax Payers of Fylde?

From They Work For You:
Mark Menzies: May I join the Secretary of State in his condolences to the family of Phil Gallie, a fellow Ayrshireman and someone I knew well?  The Secretary of State mentioned the efforts to promote jobs. Will he update the House on what he has done to follow up on the visit of the vice-premier of China, in particular on the trade links between Scotland and China?
(See here for a record of the context in which the question was asked)

No mention there of trade links between The Fylde and China to promote jobs for the tax paying voters of Fylde, who pay so much to subsidise their MP's Scotch compatriots, and their MP. If the honourable gentleman is concerned about the overseas trade propsects of his former homeland he should consider standing for a Scotch seat and not waste the time of the voters of Fylde asking questions in the House of Commons that are not in their interests. That he was selected and elected to the constituency suggests that local Conservatives are less concerned with the constituency than they are with their relations with the organ grinders at head office, and the colour of the rosette the monkey of the moment wears.

Paisley Calls The English Kettle Black

That notorious geriatric bigot, Ian ('insult to my community') Paisley has again given gratuitous offence to the ever patient and unbelievably indulgent English, without seeming to understand that he has, ironically, insulted our 'community', in what is all too obviously a panicky response to the probability that the cosy constitutional arrangements by which the insular and fractious people of Northern Ireland have been enabled to live in English subsidised, murderous sectarian animosity will not be allowed to last for very much longer.

Paisley's disgraceful outburst occurred during the debate on the private members bill, the Legislation (Territorial Extent) Bill, tabled by Harriet Baldwin, the Conservative MP for West Worcestershire, although the MSM seems not to have thought it worth mentioning and left the matter to to report.

I left the following comment, which was still awaiting moderation as I wrote this piece:
Paisley's nasty little Anglophobic tirade is only to be expected. He would do well to reflect, however, that the 'U'K is now very far from united and its continued existence at England's expense, and to the not inconsiderable disadvantage of the fifty million people who live here, merely to keep a million or so insular bigots of his ilk in the state to which they have long been accustomed is increasingly hard to justify.

The 'union' that protects the likes of Paisley exists in name only and its constitutional demise cannot be long delayed. He and his kind will then have the choice of trying to make a province in which more than four fifths of the economy depends upon the public sector, and which is still riven by sectarianism, into a viable independent state or accepting reunification with the Republic of Ireland. Should that eventuality come to pass Paisley's descendants will be citizens of a united Ireland and the people of England will have the last laugh on a nasty, narrow minded little man who has never known when to keep his mouth shut.

Here's to independence for England.

Need one say more?

Gruff thanks to Toque ('I'm Reading', 12/2/11) for the link to the item.

Post Script: It seems that I am more than a little out of date (not unusual) and owe Baron Bannside, of North Antrim in the County of Antrim, an apology. The relevant Anglophobic bigot in this instance is not the (ig)noble old rabble-rouser happily bearing the ancient English title of lord but his ignoble son, Ian Paisley Junior, who shows every indication of carrying on in the fashion of his father, although his career may not be quite as lengthy. It is amusing to consider his chances of a seat in the Dáil Éireann or Seanad Éireann and to wonder whether future historians will regard the aspiring dynasts as anything more than a minor footnote to the troubled story of a tiny and otherwise irrelevant province that was eventually absorbed by a small, impoverished country on the western edge of Europe.

Gruff thanks to Toque, again, for putting me right.

Broadcasting (Television Licence Fee Abolition) Bill 2010-11

The BBC is one of the very serious problems currently afflicting England and measures to bring it to heel are long overdue so the Broadcasting (Television Licence Fee Abolition) Bill 2010-11, sponsor Peter Bone (Conservative, Wellingborough), is a welcome attempt.
