Midweek Open Thread

 

Anna Foster on 5Live admitted the truth about the ‘crisis’ concerning the Northern Ireland border…it’s all political…it is perfectly possible to have a ‘frictionless’, ‘invisible’ border…the only thing stopping it is the EU’s land grab, it’s attempt to annex Northern Ireland interfering with British internal politics.  Her guest was Lars Karlsson [a former director of the inter-governmental World Customs Organisation] who has just done a report for the EU stating as much…and yet you wouldn’t know from the rest of the BBC’s reporting….the flagship Today show telling us that Boris Johnson ‘wasn’t right in the head’ because he proposed using electronic systems to monitor the border…as done in many countries….including our own already.  The original interview when he suggested this, again on Today with the hopeless and overpaid Mishal Husain, was the catalyst for the abuse that Boris received as Husain ridiculed him for comparing, or so she suggested, two London boroughs with the situation in NI…except of course he wasn’t comparing the political situation merely using it as an illustration of how the technology can work…as proved by Lars Karlsson…an expert unlike Husain or Sarah Montague…Montague who wanted to know if we ‘should be leaving the EU?’…Brexit being so terrible eh?  The BBC is blatant and arrogant in its attempts to create the narrative that Brexit can be reversed…a very dangerous idea I’d suggest…along with the one that suggests that if the Irish government doesn’t like the border solution it can mobilise the IRA which can dig up all those weapons it handed over during the ‘peace process’ [never mind the hundreds of bomb threats each year]…lol.

Spot any more bias…list it here…

            Those of us in the People’s Republic of South Wales were fighting a blizzard. Personally I blame the Liebore controlled Community and County Borough Councils and Assembly Government for this weather. I notice the First Minister had the good sense to go to te USA to avoid it.
            The Counnty Council have closed everything down (schools, libraries,council offices, etc.) for the duration of the bad weather, but at 4.00am the milkman managed to deliver our milk as usual. He hasn’t missed a day in the 15 years we have lived in ths house.

              Obviously, according to the County Council lefties, these closures are all Thatcher’s fault. If only she hadn’t followed Wilson’s example (ssshhh no one remembers that or his pit closure programme) and stopped the excessively overpriced school milk. Due to her actions it’s stopped the kids getting to school for their daily indoctrination. Bloody woman.

    Would it really matter to the UK if there was no customs border in Ireland?

    Unless the rest of the EU starts exporting to the UK via the Irish ‘backdoor’ in vast quantities what is the problem? It isn’t as if there is a road or rail link to Ireland from continental Europe so the logistics are quite tough.

    It’s an EU Commission problem not a UK/IRL one. If the Commission can ignore the ‘bending of the rules’ in France etc. it can surely do the same here. Whatever ‘hard border’ the Commission proposed the people of Ireland will surely circumvent anyway.

    But then it isn’t about the border is it.

      I’m not sure and will look it up but I’m guessing the tax differential of goods travelling either way will increase the wealth of the existing organised terrorist gangs and create newer versions with border wars . It would also be a back door into mainland Blighty for illegals . Ryanair would probably put on special ‘illegals’ flights from mainland EU into Eire .

        AMW is concerned about this because ‘Project Ireland 2040’ apparently plans to bring one million migrants into Ireland. There are reports that the press has been paid by the Irish government to present this plan in a positive light.
        http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/02/24/irish-mass-migration/

        Also Sinn Fein taking up their seats in order to outvote the government? I also saw Toynbee on TV mentioning this months ago. She and others are no doubt hoping.

        Meanwhile, on the straightforward question of the border, Bill Cash has to contend with nasty Kirsty on (so-called) Newsnight.

        At the moment we have a common UK/IRL travel area that existed before the EU, (part of being ‘cousins’ and all that?) and neither UK/IRL are Schengen members so entry to the travel area is controlled.

        Cross-border ‘smuggling’ goes on now because of variations in euro/pound rates. No-one needs to buy from the bully boys because they can make the trip themselves. (Something similar will happen with unit alcohol pricing in Scotland).

        Of course if IRL wants to go full-on Commission Comrades then we will need to reconsider our relationship.

        Unfortunately rather than working towards a deal that is mutually beneficial it looks like the Commission is trying to kill an admiral or two pour encourager les autres. Just because they are stupid doesn’t mean we have to dance to their tune.

They really need to tread carefully over the border issue – when it came down to it the ‘troubles ‘ were stopped because of 9/11 and the yanks suddenly finding out – at last – what terrorism is – whilst Blighty had been dealing with it for 30 years .

          Thanks for the article – the ReichEU might be too clever trying to manoeuvre Blighty into imposing a hard border . The article could well be right in saying that Blighty has no intention of changing current arrangements and if the reichEU is worried about a border it should get its local member Eire – to build one . What a coup that would be. The IRAsinfein wouldn’t know what to do…

            Definitely a good article Al.
            I think the EU strategy on this as well as being a potential “land grab” and a stirring up of “sleeping dogs” Is also another outrageous EU negotiating position, wherein they know that The Appeaser will try to find some sort of “middle ground” which in all likelihood will be much closer to the EUs preferred position than the UKs. As we know in effect any sort of ” soft brexit” in effect is no brexit.

            I consider Theresa is only mildly more effective than “call me Dave” when dealing with the EU. Every “negotiation” sees Theresa giving major ground. We have seen it in the “transition ” period where a million more EU migrants (according to migration watch) will be able to settle in the UK. We have seen it in the “divorce bill” The only reason why Theresa is making a song and a dance over the NI issue is that this time the EU have overstepped the mark even on their own outrageous “negotiation” standards

            This woman is either totally useless or has no intention of giving us any sort of true brexit. It is obvious that they have no serious intentions to carry out any meaningful negotiations and we should have walked away a long time ago.

            Instead of meaningful negotiations what we get are ridiculous demands, threats and attempts to stir up our own in house traitors (such as the BBC) and cowards to do their own dirty work.

            Ladies and gentlemen what we are witnessing is not a negotiation but the bullying of a once proud nation and with the leaders we currently have in place (who have either little political courage or just lack integrity) will result in nothing more than a SLOW MOTION SURRENDER.

              The last I heard, Eire was still in hock to the rest of the world, especially to the UK, although their economy is improving from post-2007/2009.

              If that Breitbart figure is true (and it needs some verification) that rather puts a colossal dent (pardon the understatement) in the claims from many people that widespread immigration is an economic benefit to a country in ‘the West’.

However, the BBC is only interested in the fact that he is a Muslim, and they are selling him as an icon for Islam. Their latest story about him is written by Tusdiq Din and is headlined: “Mohamed Salah: Is Liverpool striker’s success improving engagement with Muslim fans?
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/43208945

    Prior to this the BBC ran a video story headlined: “Mohamed Salah inspires ‘I’ll be Muslim too’ chant
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-43081318/mohamed-salah-inspires-i-ll-be-muslim-too-chant

      Many successful Muslims do not thrive because of Islam but in spite of it. Some ROPers see football as unislamic – I have always been amazed that not a single British Muslim from England seems to have broken into professional football. They clearly prefer ‘grooming’ to kicking a football about.

      Many are merely nominally Muslim because to leave the faith is punishable by death. High achievers are under-represented in the ROP due to the terrible restrictions the faith places on them – they could never create a Mozart or Bill Gates. All the inbreeding in certain communities also leads to low IQ.

    “The flag, it added, was a celebration of the crime against humanity committed by the white minority regime against millions of South Africans.”
    Yet, a much bigger story from South Africa is in play and it is how the new government voted in a law which allows white farms to be taken off white farmers without compensation.
    The time for reconciliation is over’: South Africa votes to confiscate white-owned land without compensation

    The ANC is currently suffering a public image problem due to Zuma so what they have done in which to rectify years of mismanagement is rob whitey in which to appease the crowd. An act which ruined Zimbabwe and yet the bBC remains silent.

    Some garbage on World Service about analysing all the lines said by women in Oscar nominated films, and whether they are about men. They even gave the test a scientific sounding name to give their SJW whining a veneer of intellectual rigour.

    Will their obsession with gender and ‘diversity’ ever end? Not only analysing the number of lines said by women but what they are about – they think that is a news story? How many more shoes than men do women have? How many women judge men solely on their earnings? How many ROPers think Sharia trumps all other law? They will never ask anything other than the same old, skull-crushingly boring questions: why is a certain group not represented 50/50 in a certain field.

    Though diversity is fantastic, anything other than the exact same outcome for every group is unacceptable.

Few women would be happy to just provide for a man as feminists believe.

            In their younger days death often was a clear and present threat and therefore if someone said they wanted help or understanding it was freely given.
            The “we are all in it together” response was a major reason why Britain was able to resist the onslaught of the Nazis. Unfortunately when the state broadcaster has a hidden agenda and is as unscrupulous and manipulative as the BBC is. People from the older generation for above mentioned reasons are easily confused and manipulated.

            News agendas these days rather than being based on analysis of fact seem to be based more on the feelings and desires of a generation of selfish crybabies and the emotionally incontinent.

This man is a criminal many times over and ought to be in prison. His contempt for democracy and the British people was typified by his decision to keep his mass immigration policy secret because he knew that the British people would reject it out of hand. It is therefore no wonder that he wants to cosy up to the un Democratic EU. No doubt he thinks that if he can be seen as a major player in the nullification of the Brexit vote , which by the way I expect will be the case, we will not exit in any meaningful way, he will be rewarded with some high post in Brussels.

        I think it’s all coming home to roost for this despicable man.

        He’s probably the most hated and despised person in the UK today, and yet the bloody bbbc still revere his addled brain, confused spouting, and utter contempt for the British people.

        He is deliberately trying to obfuscate the British people with his whining and hand-wringing obscenities, and it’s just as well he’s never seen close to that other bastard Brown, as someone might just shove a sword though both of them at the same time to save energy.

        You can loathe politicians, you can even want to smash their ugly faces, but to really despise people like him, you have to understand that he is only out to do what he wants for himself. Nobody else.

        Despicable in the extreme. I hate him.

    Transgender activist and former L’Oreal model Munroe Berdorf has been appointed as a Labour party adviser on LGBT issues to “help form and push though fairer and more effective policy changes”. This chap, who once answered to the name Ian, would appear to be the same hormone-popping racist who recently noted that “the white race is the most violent and oppressive force of nature on earth”.

    The BBC currently have a headline on their English News homepage that directly promotes the smashing of Christian Headstones.
    BBC Headline: “Clergyman’s headstone ‘should be smashed’

    The BBC have been hard selling this article, as indicated by the fact the article is over a day old yet is still headlined on the English News homepage. The article itself relates to the comments of a person saddened by the recent allegation that a deceased clergyman had abused a boy thirty years ago.

    So there you have it, the BBC promoting the smashing of Christian graves. I wonder what the BBC’s response would be if someone
    suggested the smashing of a Muslim grave?

    The BBC like to push anything ‘Hope Not Hate’ say as facts down our throats. That is the same Hope Not Hate that was supported by BBCs favourite groper Brendan “grab them by the throat” Cox before he disappeared from lecturing the general public on morality.

    Hope Not Hate is the same organisation that exaggerated incorrectly claimed the amount of online “right wing” abuse following Jo Cox’s murder in a press release. The BBC of course published that report in full and then Hope Not Hate withdrew that report after it was clear they made up data mistakes in their data collecting.

    Just a 100 years ago after Europe’s first attempt at suicide during the Great War as called, Not however like previous wars fought in the West such as the English Civil War and the Americam Civil War but equally as destructiveand although armed conflict hasn’t broken out thus far, should matters continue escalating as they have done since mid nineteen sixties vicious fighting is sure to ensue. There is a mishmash of races that have migrated to settle in the West who are also waging this civil war on the indigenous people whose only crime is the desire to preserve their nations, identities and cultures for future generations. This surely is a fundamental human right of all peoples. Yet because of six decades of mass immigration and forcibly imposed multiculturalism committed by a succession of treacheous governments aided by the Media such in particular as the BBC, this precious human right is being denied to one people and only one people. Conveniently the brutal histories of African blacks and Arab colonialism via the spread of Islam are, either completely ignored or rewritten, highlighting their minimal contributions to humanity and mostly exaggerating them-of course Socialism is the cancer in our society again led by the attitude so often presented by the BBC. Be certain that far from being a benign, enriching ideology, multiculturalism is a strategy deployed by the Left to impose socialism on the West. The exact aim of those that brought the thought of a European Union into being. This explains why despite increasing terror attacks and disprportionate levels of crime committed by blacks and Muslims. Western governments continue to import hordes of aliens from the Third World-however as long as people continue to vote for the same established political parties, the deliberate dismantling of Western nations will continue apace, and that could provide chances for of all-out civil war aided and encouraged by such Media as we are forced to accept today.

Two top generals accused of masterminding the plot, Gilbert Diendere and Djibrill Bassole, were cheered by supporters as they arrived at the court in the capital Ouagadougou. Security was high, with forces guarding a 200-metre (yard) cordon around the military tribunal. Traffic was blocked, mobile phones banned and people entering the zone were searched.

      When I used to drive over from Germany on leave. I always made sure, i had warm clothing, a sleeping bag, extra food and water a good bloody torch and spare batteries in the boot and the best part, it doesn’t take up much space, time of effort.

      Its the same with the street, I always ensure that the snow is swept , 3 doors either side regards the pavement and I lay rock salt. Had a look earlier on, the only part which is clear on our street is our patch, the rest is a bloody ice skating rink. A few years ago, whilst clearing the snow, I watched this old bidy slip, sliding away until she came to the clear patch, she stamped her feet when she knew she was on firm ground and then as she walked past me, she exclaimed; “If I slip, I will sue”. I simply replied,you sue, I kill you (helps being a packy) not expecting such an answer, she walked off, with her tail between her legs.

    Sauce for the goose

    I suppose it is vaguely interesting to air the obvious contradictions between what our media sistahood like to say and how they act – particularly among the longish strand of that mid-market body of media ‘talent’ now happily wagged by the BBC tail (that consists of the movement’s head girls).

    ITV’s Loose Women are pointing out to their viewers the terrible outrage of a photo of the Kardashian women labelled with their weights in kilograms. I know, the end of the world as we know it. Here comes the Patriarchy marching from strength to strength!

    Apparently it is bothersome that 15-year-old girls will take the wrong message. Women’s achievements ought to be their labels. But do the Kardashians have achievements, outside of celebrity and looks?

    Taste the pungent flavour of Metropolitan Leftist BBC received wisdom in the ITV wimmin’s arguments: “do you know Florence Nightingale’s weight when she founded modern nursing? Or how much Rosa Parks weighed in at? Or Melania [I think they meant to say Malala]?

    So, some celebs with their supposed unachievable body image is damaging to impressionable young girls to see but setting them the goal of immitating the top Social Justice Warrior Queens is cool?

    Then up pops the Loose Women’s answer to the Kardashian pic. Each of them made up in similar fashion with some right on slogan label. But what do we hear the panel murmuring among themselves: “Oh gosh, you look good in that photo, foxy”

      Loved the bit about the hippy with an old VW van fitted with a winch. JV closed by praising its powerful front-wheel drive! The breadth of that man’s ignorance is amazing.

    on the JV show now : George Monbiot
    He just claimed that he worked for the BBC then Alistair ordered an end to all investigative reporting
    ..that seems “too woo to be true”

    BBC Radio Humberside crusading for Siemens again this time about a POSSIBLE new factory with 700 jobs
    … resulting in a hilarious vox pop in Goole as the journo tried to lead the public by gushing “it’s good news isn’t it,
    – the first person replied ‘no not really, they’ll be a flat with Lithuanians upstairs & East Timorese downstairs”
    ..and some others implied similarly
    ..This alludes to a comments on the Facebook page : could it be Employer, deals with wide-boy employment agency, who immediately looks to Eastern European workers, over local born ?

    Good to see that public are more skeptical & showing full colour thinking,vs simplistic lala-medialand.
    #1 It’s a COULD/IF situation
    : the factory COULD be built, IF Siemens can book some orders
    (which they have not yet done)
    So it’s not the same as a factory that’s in the bag
    #2 SUBSIDY dependent jobs are not the same as real jobs
    ..passenger tickets rarely cover the full costs, so they are generally a subsidised industry, whereas car driving is not.
    – The factory will be next to a new wood pellet plant , another subsidy dependent industry.

      Reminds me of that half wit failure Gordon Brown with his “ British jobs for British workers “ crap and then opened the doors to east European accession states and really got the ball rolling for brexit
