Long Weekend Open Thread 24 May 2019

The Far Left Pro EU Pro Islam BBC Cannot , by law , say anything which might influence voting in any part of the EU until 2200 on Sunday 26th . So it gives us the opportunity to record breaches of the law as the BBC makes unlawful comments .

Out Election Voting papers are in the hands of a pro remain civil service . Will the results be fiddled ?

    Trexit at last.

    I think Hammond and Rudd should follow her.
    They are also unwanted.

    Then the likes of Gauke and the other remainers contaminating the cabinet.

    Get the dominoes falling now the head remainer is getting booted out. (Sorry, I meant resigning of her own free will)

      The historical background to all this is –

      http://ocla.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/OCLA_Report_2019-1.pdf

      The EU elections across Europe will perhaps be very significant, if you like, no less than the beginning of the end of the ‘Fourth Reich’

      Jump to the conclusions in the PDF –

      “The only effective resistance against globalization in the West has become the recent electoral and demonstrative revolts related to the Brexit vote, the Trump electoral victory, and the Gilets jaunes movement, all newly understood as the class conflict between the deplorables and the bobos-and-elites, between the sedentary rural inhabitants (the “somewheres”) and the globalist urbanites (the “anywheres”)

      If it’s business as usual and we are still in the EU in a few months time then that will be the end of the Conservative party. For good. And quite right too.

      If it happens they’ll shrug their shoulders and say it was a protest vote and that they were working to implement the result of the 2016 poll. Complicated negotiations to save jobs and protect the environment took time. Parliament had rejected the politics of the cliff edge.

      Basically Conservative will argue that it’s more complicated being a grown up than junior (who just lost in a milkshake fight) thought. Labour won’t be asked. State Broadcaster won’t embarrass it’s own.

    Two thoughts on BBC Politics, just finished.
    One: How Owen Jones has got through life so far without a broken nose is a mystery.
    Two: That those watching Ken Clarke for the third time today on BBC have perhaps forgotten or have not lived long enough to remember a programme a couple of decades ago. It was a televised Tory leadership contest between lovable cuddly Ken and William Hague in which lovable cuddly Ken lost it so comprehensively that Hague romped home as a consequence. That is the sort of politician Clarke is at heart, and always has been. That his opinions are both sought and regarded as significant by the BBC is another illustration of their ignorance and prejudice.

    Morrissey posters banned by Liverpool’s Merseyrail transport network.

    Merseyrail say promo posters for his new album “did not reach a level of verification” and that they’re reviewing their processes of approving “potentially contentious material”. (Surely entirely unrelated to his recent support of For Britain or the recent TR event in Liverpool).

    Good to see that it only takes one offended commuter to effect such change. Someone should consider raising a complaint about potentially contentious material at the BBC. I’m sure the verification process is just as robust.

    The party that brought us Gordon Brown has a short memory. Regardless this is precisely why I think May was right to call an election in 2017 – to counter hypocritical accusations of illegitimacy.

    Statement by Juncker

    “Dear EU Citizens,

    It is with deep regret that I have to announce, we have heard some very sad news today…that our Agent in
    Number 10 Downing Street…has finally been recognised and ‘removed’
    from duty”.

    “We wish to thank her, for her great efforts on behalf of the EU”.

    “This is a setback for the EU’s attempts to foist a New Treaty on the UK, that is worse than a surrender after a War”.

    “We remain determined to steal £39 billion from the UK…in return for nothing whatsoever”.

    “Please be patient, as the EU works with other Agents in the UK…to put in place a replacement EU quisling”.

        Dover, it should be remembered, if I recall correctly, that Boris Johnson only became ‘a Brexiteer’ about the start of the final week of the Referendum campaign. It was at that point he decided to vote Leave. Prior to that he had been broadly pro-EU membership while being strongly critical of much of the EU and its practices.

        I think the BBC have forgotten that.

              Can’t explain the terrorism bit but I think the “mass infiltration by Islam” could have something to do with the Papacy’s long term ambition of having all the major world religions come together under one umbrella with the Pope as its head.

              Recent Popes have stated openly that “one doesn’t need to believe that faith in Christs death and Resurrection is the only way of getting to heaven”…i,e. “atheists go to heaven also”.

              Meaning as long as one believes that his own conscience pleases them God will therefore accept them. Below is just one example/change of Church doctrine that will please the other world religions exceedingly:

    Not sure why May has to stay in for another excruciating two weeks. She should never have become PM in the first place.

    I was flabbergasted that she chose to speak about her dealings with the EU as if they were honourable and in the best interest of the country and were really going to deliver Brexit, if only parliament had agreed. If she really believes all that, she is quite insane.

    And then she went on to express the hope that her successor would carry her valiant efforts on – as if she is hoping that a change in PM will still mean the continuation of the farcical slow-motion ‘Brexit’ surrender she’s been involved in for so long and at such cost to her party and the country.

    I think the single most absurd thing May did was to promise to step down if only MPs would vote for her ‘deal.’ She was saying, in other words, accept this wonderful thing I’ve created with the help of those nice people in power in the EU and I’ll regard my role as fulfilled and my great contribution complete.

    That amount of self-denial and denial of evident realities is simply staggering.

      TT, “She should never have become PM in the first place.”

      It is ironic that two Conservative Party leaders – as Prime Minister – have in recent years been given the opportunity to turn their Party fortunes around (after Thatcher’s final failure and Major’s grindingly grey years) and be heroes in the eyes of the nation, if perhaps not in the eyes of the present EU overseers.

      As I have posted before, ‘Dave’ could have been considered doubly honourable as PM, keeping the commitment he made to hold the EU Referendum in the first place and then taking the UK out of the EU (something he said he did not want but initially said he would deliver), with or without a deal (I prefer the latter) within two years of the end of June 2016.

      Now, two more Conservative leaders have proved themselves highly unreliable or untrustworthy, or both, along with Heath, Thatcher and Major.

      I never, ever, thought that Iain Duncan Smith (along with the much more impressive Michael Howard) would ever be made to look good as a Conservative Party leader but – amazingly – it has now happened thus!

    It was a bit of a let down, therefore, when he started every other answer with “I think” or “I understand”. In other words, he is just another overpaid Beeboid with an opinion. He knows next to nowt, really.

    “Theresa May resignation: What does it mean for Brexit?”
    “The short answer is that both No Deal and No Brexit are now both more likely.”

    Why no Brexit ?
    Expect more tosh from Al Beeb. It will now start to behave like a caged and wounded animal.
    But have no fear because Boris knows that Al Beeb is definitely Biased. Trump knows that Al Beeb is Biased and he is on his way to rattle their cage .
    Exciting times ahead.

      taffman, I long for quiet times.

      I do not want the UK to run the world. I do not want the UK to ruin the world as it has recently attempted to do under a couple of Labour Prime Ministers. I do not wish the UK to ‘police’ the world. I do not want the UK to have disproportionate influence on the world. I do not want the UK to hide from the world. I do not want the UK protected from the world.

      I would like the UK to spend a period of time – some decades? – looking after its people at home (and abroad when necessary) but living quietly, with minimal governance. I would like the UK to be at peace with itself. I would like the UK to modernise itself, not live in some sort of previous and very past ‘past’. I would like the UK to let its natural inventiveness and enterprise flourish in all sorts of areas of life. I would like the UK to trade with the world.

      Ain’t goin’ to happen.

      🙁

      Especially as not many others share that as a set of objectives, especially our politicians.

      But still, I would like it to.

    Can I just say this is only a small chink of light in a very dark cavern the progressive elite have imprisoned us in.
    But the the real fight is just about to start. Can I remind you all, we should have all been out by now, trading as a free nation instead this self obsessed, devious, traitor, aided and abetted by a crooked establishment and an even more crooked state broadcaster, has ensured we still have months if not years of horse trading to free ourselves from the EU Incubus. The longer she stayed the deeper the damage, and I think she has certainly achieved much in that respect.
    Having said that can I thank everyone here (and particularly those who run this site – FE2 and co) for maintaining this little isle of sanity in a mad, mad, progressive world. And I think if Farage gets even a slight sniff of power, the BBC better be bloody worried!
    So I raise my glass to all of you here, lets sit back, enjoy the self pitying tears and gird our loins for the battle ahead.
    No more comments from me tonight – I am on the scotch!

    2019-05-24 15:10 BBC SPORT Golf By Mantej Mann

    “Catriona Matthew: Golf majors ‘should be equal pay’ says Solheim Cup captain”

    More “Affirmative Action” demanded.

    Professional mens golf is more popular, more competitive, is of a higher standard, attracts a great more sponsorship, attracts far more viewers and thus has higher prize money.

    This all used to be true of men’s tennis, the women moaned long and often and their prize money was increased. The women still play best of three sets.

    I assuming the golf girls have learned from this and will moan incessantly until their prizes are increased.

    Anybody remember Michelle Wie? Entered male tournaments, got nowhere.
    She played in 13 tournaments, made the cut once, at a minor tournament.

    Since she was playing off the men’s tees her performance was impressive, for a woman, but Ivan Lendl did far better in mens professional golf tournaments than Wie, and he was primarily a tennis player!

    That’s how big the gulf is, a very talented male sportsman can, after his first sports career is over, take up a second sport and become better at it than any woman.

      It’s all to do with how many people bother to watch women’s golf on the tv or the footfall at an actual tournament. Hence the advertising revenue. I’ve been to Birkdale, Lytham and Hoylake for the men’s Open and seen the amount of spectators. There is no way the women’s Open would attract that amount of interest. They can bleat about it TIL the coes come home, but women golfers will never be paid the same as men. Sorry.

    .. My mother comments that the people were wearing coats.

    Please correct me if I’m wrong here..
    We didn’t vote to JOIN the Common Market. Under our constitution any fundamental change (e.g. ceding control to a foreign power) must be put to the people for authorisation.
    Harold Wilson (the crafty bugger) knew we had been signed up to the Common Market illegally (and contrary to the Coronation Oath) and put it to the people in a vote to REMAIN to correct this.

      Spinning Reith, you are quite correct. Ted Heath relied on that quaint old thing – a Party Manifesto, dismissed recently by Heseltine or Clarke or both – from the 1970 General Election. Because it was there, albeit as the last item, IIRC, on the Party Manifesto, Heath stated no further vote was necessary.

      How different from these times, eh, Gina?

      That’s to an extent past history because there have been two more recent updating Treaties in relation to the hijack formerly known as the EEC: Maastricht and Lisbon.

      But, BUT, more importantly, again IIRC, it was an EEC/EC suggestion (if not requirement) with the Maastricht Treaty, that member States ratify with a public vote or specifically waive in their Parliament their right to do so. John Major refused to give one to the UK. Seem to recall he railroaded through a Parliamentary vote with a bit of Harold Wilson type obfuscation. Other nations voted but not the UK. One or two rejected it first time around and were made to vote again. Denmark briefly became heroes for that – as well as Peter Schmeicel.

      Do I recall correctly that with the Lisbon Treaty, Gordon Brown did not turn up on time to sign? Also, having promised the electorate a vote on any further EC Treaty, originally Blair and Brown when the former was PM, GB then refused to actually call it when the time came?

      I also recall Ted Heath being specifically challenged about the Federal unifying State ambitions of the then EEC, publicly by Enoch Powell and Peter Shore and on TV by Robin Day, I think. Heath – as we now know – lied.

      Funny that. An EEC/EC/EU enthusiast lying but instead calling their opponents liars.

      Some things do not change.

      Oh, hallo Gordon! I didn’t see you there. Mind you, you are living quietly these days, are you not?

    For me the strangest point of May’s resignation speech was her emotion at the end. She was either
    1) Genuinely upset at not being able to fulfill the wishes of her EU masters and completely humiliate Britain, or
    2) She has deceived the country to such an extent over the past 3 years, she has started to believe her own lies, and she genuinely believed the drivel in her speech.
    Who knows, but I’m just so happy she will shortly be gone, what an utter disaster she has been for democracy and for our country.

      Yep everyone in the country has lined up and given May a good kicking, and yep she’s brought the downfall on herself with bad decision making, lacking balls in negotiating with Brussels, and lack of emotion when needed.

      I do get pissed off though, with tv journalists who state she is the worst PM since the war. These journalists were born in the 70’s and 80’s so haven’t a clue who was any good or useless.

      Antony Eden made a cock up with Suez in the 50s. Wilson had problems with Ian Smith’s government in Rhodesia. We lived in a 3 day week with no electricity under Heath. What would the likes of Lewis Goodall , Sky’s latest journalistic infant, have to say at living like that I wonder.

      Theresa May may not have a ‘legacy’, but neither did a lot of PMs since the War.

      Today everyone, regardless, gets f……..g slaughtered on social media. Its not a future ‘nasty party’ we need to be worried about, the nation as a whole have become hateful to the point of becoming despicable.

        I suspect many of us here grew up expecting our politicians and prime ministers to have the country’s best interests at heart, even if you didn’t agree with them.

        Of course there has always been incompetence and venality and sex scandals along the way. There would also be the odd national humiliation like Suez too.

        But if I could pin it down as to when it all started to go wrong, and – like HG Wells’ martians ‘they drew their plans against us’ I would say it began under John Major. Then it accelerated massively under Blair, and it’s been getting worse ever since.

        It’s as if post-Thatcher it was decided that any whiff of populist right-wing ideas had to be completely stamped out. We were being primed for mass immigration, censorship and told that a dog is a horse and how dare you say otherwise.

        So for me the worst Prime Ministers are pretty much all from the last 20 years. Something changed. The crooks and non-entities that are allowed to govern us now might as well be martians as they seem to live on a different planet!

          Thank you IMNALY, I couldn’t agree more. I didn’t mention the incompetantancy of the Millennium bunch of PM’s because young and old alike have them fresh in our memories. And for most the present incumbent of the post is always ‘the worst’. Aside from Blair, my own personal ‘worst’ was Brown and his tax grab on pension pots, – which appeared to range from 10 billion to 100 billion, but whichever way you look at it, he more than any PM catastrophically buggered up retirement plans for everyone paying into a pension.

    People of rep of Ireland you can visit the Northern part of Ireland when ever you want no passport, if you want to come to any other part of UK you show a passport (i think you all ready do)
    People of Northern Ireland you can visit the republic when ever you like without a passport, if you want to travel anywhere else in EU you have to show your passport (i think you all ready do)
    Obviously the IRA and UDA were really concerned with trade when they signed the good Friday agreement, so to avoid a hard border only one solution
    We wont sell anything to the republic of Ireland, and we wont buy anything from the republic of Ireland

    Don’t know if anyone has watched the excellent docudrama ‘Chernobyl’, but it really does illustrate everything wrong with left wing societies.

    The power plant reactor explodes, the man in charge says it hasn’t and so therefore no one is allowed to speak the truth. People are threatened with ‘bad reports’.
    The local central comittee is called, and listens to what they want to hear the local director stands up and tells everyone nothing is wrong and to get on with their work as if nothing has happened.

    None of them have any insight skill of qualifications in nuclear science, but they are in senior positions of authority.

    The faked information is relayed to Moscow, who seemingly realise they are not being told the truth, do what socialists do – call together a committee.
    Despite being advised to evacuate everyone, they don’t want to hear the truth preferring to do nothing until they have no other choice.

    It’s like watching the goings on in the UK and its parliament sadly.

    A suspected parcel bomb has exploded in the centre of the eastern French city of Lyon, injuring 13 people.

    Those hurt in the explosion on Victor-Hugo Street, including a girl aged eight, appear to have suffered superficial injuries.

    Police are hunting a cyclist who was seen leaving the parcel outside a bakery on a street corner, reports say.

    Anti-terrorist prosecutors have taken over the investigation in the country’s third-biggest city.

    Jihadist gun and bomb attacks have killed more than 250 people in France since 2015 and the country remains on high alert, with military patrols a regular feature of security in cities including Lyon.
