Don't Look Back In Anger

New Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn
2015 saw the Tories, very marginally the lesser of two evils, win a majority in the general election leading to disastrous Labour leader Ed Miliband riding off into the sunset. Enter stage left the even bigger disaster, new Labour leader Jeremy "Call Me Comrade" Corbyn.

Corbyn's election was greeted by the delusional left as a "breath of fresh air" and the election of an "anti-politician leader". The reality is that Corbyn has the distinctive stench of the particularly vile brand of left-wing politics that brought this country to its knees in the 1970s. Most people mature over several decades, Corbyn is stuck in the past, preserved in aspic. He is of the deeply patronising class warrior persuasion while coming from a very comfortable middle class background. Ever heard a Bob Dylan song "The Times They are A'Changing" Jezza?

As for him being the anti-politician, man of the people confronting all those career politicians, don't make me laugh. Despite going to a very good grammar school Jezza bypassed higher education and went to work first as a trade union official, then for the Labour Party. He was elected to represent Islington in 1983. Hardly a solid grounding in the real world of work and life. Since then, until being  elected leader, he had never been trusted by his party in any other position than backbench loose cannon. Since 1983 he has voted consistently against his own party, but now demands loyalty from his parliamentary colleagues.

Then we saw Frau Merkel, stern dominatrix of the German volk, inviting the world's poor, oppressed and hate filled jihadis into Europe, no questions asked. This open door policy has seen over 1,000,000 people invading Europe, clearly the most irresponsible move by a senior European politician this century. I wrote about our experiences travelling with illegal immigrants from Austria to Germany before so, rather than bore you, just clink on this link if you care to read it.

Since then we have seen migrants fighting each other, radicalising migrants already here and seen a rise in far right parties across Europe as populations become ever angrier at being consistently ignored by the establishment of country after country. I will not go on about this as I wrote about my views on the subject in this post.

Underpinning the constant undermining of our way of life is political correctness, a form of intellectual imprisonment that suppresses freedom by accusing those opposing certain policies of being 'offensive' or guilty of an 'ism'. A couple of big examples in recent weeks have brought the nonsense of political correctness into sharp focus.

Donald Trump is running for the Republican Party nomination in the US presidential election. Unlike career politicians Trump sees muslims slaughtering people all over the world and does not pretend that this has nothing to do with Islam, it clearly does. When one of the San Bernardino murderers was found to have gone through the US vetting system, without her easily traceable radicalisation in Pakistan being flagged up, he called for a temporary halt to muslims entering the US until the system was reviewed and reformed to prevent this happening again. The politically correct immediately screamed racism (despite Islam being a religion) and 500,000 of the emotionally incontinent in the UK signed a petition condemning his call to ban anybody entering any country by calling for Trump to be banned from entering the UK. But that's lefties for you, hypocrites to a man.

Meanwhile Oxford University's Oriel College is under siege from the terminally offended for having a statue to nineteenth century imperialist and entrepreneur Sir Cecil Rhodes. They claim the statue could somehow offend black students because of Rhodes' work in southern Africa. This is supposed to be one of the world's finest universities but the students, and some academics, are behaving like tyrannical Stalinist madmen who think that removing statues removes history. Well it doesn't and why would rational, thinking human beings want to? It shows how inadequate and second rate our education system is now.

Tell you what, a real way to attack Rhodes would be for all those people now attacking, from all ethnic backgrounds, who have gained degrees supported financially by Rhodes Scholarships to hand back their degrees and repay the Rhodes money they were happy to take. But don't hold your breath.

So best wishes to all and I hope you have a happy and prosperous 2016. Attack political correctness wherever rears its ugly head and stay rational.

It's A Mad, Mad World

As we hurtle towards the end of another year most of us start looking back on the last twelve months, and start to really recognise how the madness has continued unabated.

Let's look at the Labour Party first, a bunch of loonies at the best of times but now they are flying at the speed of sound towards total insanity. It started with Miliband changing their leadership election rules so that, for a mere £3, you could register as a supporter and vote in their leadership election. All you had to agree to was a belief in equality and stuff like that, all the stuff that's a bit airy fairy and hypothetical. So, many thousands of us signed up and got one of politics biggest losers elected as party leader. I've never laughed so much for a mere £3, much cheaper than a night at the Comedy Store.

Corbyn is the loser who has been on the backbenches since being elected in 1983. In fact I think he has been a cryogenic experiment and was actually deep frozen in 1983 his views have changed so little. A real throwback who is doing everything we hoped he would do. Keep up the good work Agent Corbyn but ease off a little, we don't want your leadership challenged in 2016, you have more work to do to really wreck the Labour Party.

Then we've Angela Merkel, the barking mad dominatrix of the German people. She who had the genius idea of opening up Germany to migrants and nutjobs from all over the muslim world. Problem being that once said nutjobs enter Germany and register they are free to move throughout Europe. Frau Merkel is apparently so stupid she didn't realise that this would produce a crisis.

I thought at the time that Merkel/the EU created the crisis to eventually offer the EU as the only solution to the problem. Lo and behold, this week the EU has announced the creation of a land and naval border security force (army and navy) under control of the EU with the power to close a country's borders whether that country wants its borders closed or not. If you trust the EU you are clearly in need of help!

So this year we have had thousands and thousands of muslim migrants from all over the world flooding unchecked into Europe. ISIS announced a long time ago its intention to infiltrate psychopaths into Europe disguised as refugees. But dare raise these issues and the politically correct nutjobs accuse YOU of extremism and claim that the overwhelming majority of muslims are lovely and cuddly. Oh aye, well name one muslim country you would be happy to live in.

Across the pond, one of the San Bernadino butchers had entered the USA legally but checks hadn't found her extremist background. Donald Trump suggested that closing the US borders to muslims until the mess was sorted out might be a good idea. The politically correct nutjobs went so hysterical they started foaming at the mouth like rabid dogs. "You can't stop people coming into your country like that!" they screamed. Then started an online petition to stop Donald Trump entering the UK. Of course the BBC made great play of 500,000 people signing said petition. They forgot to mention that a petition to stop (muslim) immigration into the UK immediately had also garnered 500,000. signatures.

It really is a mad, mad world.
