  1. Richard Pinder says:

    “Imperialism” is the ideological policy or practice of extending European Union rule over other territories, by gaining political and economic control and subverting democracy by the use of subterfuge and bribery. If this does not work and 52 percent of the population are not fooled by subterfuge and bribery, then the European Union needs to create an Army to impose its imperialism by military force.

    “Decolonisation” is the undoing of imperialism and the dismantlement of European Union rule. The people in Britain demanding back independence, sovereignty and democratic control. In the process of decolonization there is no alternative to the European Union but to allow a process of Self-determination, but in practice decolonization may involve either non-violent revolution or national liberation wars by pro-independence groups like UKIP or the Brexit Party. It may involve the intervention of friendly powers acting individually under the orders of the Queen, such as Canada, Australia or New Zealand. Or it could be help for the mother country from a President who had a British mother. Or it could be help from anti-imperialist, especially anti-European imperialist organisations such as the United Nations.

    “Quisling” is a traitor who collaborates with the European Union. A Quisling is as Churchill said “hired to fawn upon the conqueror, to collaborate in his designs and to enforce his rule upon their fellow countrymen while grovelling low themselves” In chapter 36 of the 1998 Crime and Disorder Act, the Quisling, Tony Blair, attempted to repeal the 1795 Treasonable and Seditious Practices Act and the death penalty for high treason, but the Queen pointed out that he had no lawful authority to do so, and he committed treason in this attempt. This is thought to be the reason that the Queen wont give this Pro-EU Quisling and former Prime Minister the “Order of the Garter”. Next year it could be revealed that “High Treason” can still be used to hang all those Pro-EU traitors.

      Richard
      It always got me looking at constitution law of how much residual power sits with the monarch as ‘crown ‘. And how the sovereignty of Parliament isn’t quite at absolute as it can appear
      I can’t make the effort to ‘game’ the parliamentary weapons which might be used by either side of Brexit to either overthrow the current government and revoke A50 or -on the other side – ignoring or circumventing VONC ( which I understand means Vote of No Confidence ) in order for no action to occur which will frustrate A50 expiring on 31 October .

      Naturally the MSM does not – in my opinion – provide the explanatory guide it should – because it is emotionally connected to Remain .
      I may be wrong as the likes of Vernon Bognor? Writes for the firewalled Telegraph to lay out a view .

      But now doubt EU mouthpieces like greave , Soubry and the like will be constructing layers of attack come the return on
      3 September .
      Some on Twitter claim that the opportunity to revoke A50 through a General Election is already gone – I can’t see that as anything other than ‘wishful thinking ‘.

    I notice in the daily express that Jeffery Epstein has died, in his prison cell. We’re being told it was suicide, despite him being on suicide watch.
    But, I’ve no doubt there are a lot of powerful individuals who will be breathing a long sigh of relief at the news.
    I hope he spilled the beans on at least some of the perverts who used his child abuse services before he was off-ed.

      Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, 66, kills himself in his Manhattan jail cell, how convenient, a bit like a car crash in an underpass really.
      Epstein might have had some very incriminating information on a lot of powerful people who would rather the public would remain in the dark about.

      We’ll never know now, will we.

      Nice photo in The Daily Mail today with a very young and nice looking girl.

    Europe faces an interesting autumn.
    Will Brexit happen on October 31st?
    Italian government falling apart.
    Could Matteo Salvini, scourge of the ‘migrant’ industry in the Mediterranean, become Prime Minister?
    Could there be elections in Spain on 10 November, cos the migrant-friendly Socialists are unable to form a government?
    Could 3 Federal German states, Sachsen, Thuringia, and Brandenburg -who all face October elections- be an opportunity for the AfD, who could take over government in 1 or 2 of them?
    Does all this mean that ‘liberal democracy’ as the established tool of the EU elites, will have to face down ‘populists’, i.e. real people, here there and everywhere?
    By the way: there is very little that is genuinely ‘liberal’ in the ‘liberal democratic’ model.
    Come to think of it, there’s nothing very ‘democratic’ either. (See UK LimpDumbs)

    Thousands of people took to the streets in Srinagar after Friday prayers, in the largest demonstration since a lockdown was imposed in Indian-administered Kashmir.

    The BBC witnessed the police opening fire and using tear gas to disperse the crowd. Despite that, the Indian government has said the protest never took place.

    Because of the electricity supply problems in Birmingham (since the Labour Party victory in 1997 we haven’t had electricity in the city in order to make the ‘New Brummies’ feel at home) could someone get word to Harry’s Hog Roast, Paula’s Provocative Pole Dancers, Guinness and the LGBT Kazoo Marching Mincers that their services are no longer required.

          Its like a lot of the films being churned out are of the comic book variety, as the directors have grown up on a diet of fantasy, thus the years of decent and watchable movies are over, because the directors who made them are either retired or dead.

    It looks like Project Fear is rolling out ex Prime Ministers again to shout about ‘ the dangers ‘ of Brexit .
    For some reason Gordon Brown thinks that it if we leave the EU the UK Union will be in danger – as if that matters . The reality is relative population sizes and the amount of noise the likes of Scottish politicians make .

    Project Fear seem to think the view of Ex PMs like Brown have any value – pity he has never admitted that allowing unrestricted access to the UK by Eastern EU accession states put fuel on the fire of brexit which is burning hot and bright even after 24/7 propaganda by the traitor BBC

        It was on Sky News (like others, I have given up on BBC News) and I looked at the BBC web page to see how they were treating it. No mention, hence the comment above. I’ve now looked at Times, Telegraph and even the Mail and no mention. Sky Website however has “The government has agreed to provide financial support to British Steel potentially worth hundreds of millions of pounds, paving the way for Turkey’s military pension fund to secure the company’s immediate future”. I thought that this would have been more interesting than vaginal steaming but as it shows support for UK industry post-EU, maybe not!

I warrant his Agent and others involved in his career are pulling their hair out.

        As usual with statistics, we need to examine very carefully precisely what is going on. A few years ago, hysterical headlines in the Daily Mail, I think it was, over comparisons between the UK and the US, failed to point out the huge difference in the definition of “violence” between the two countries. The official definitions were freely available and it was shot down over the following weeks, but this received little attention. Circulation up, mission accomplished.

        For example:
        “Violent crime covers a wide range of offences from minor assaults (such as pushing and shoving), harassment and abuse (that result in no physical harm), through to wounding and homicide.”

        https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/crimeandjustice/articles/thenatureofviolentcrimeinenglandandwales/yearendingmarch2018

        Pushing and shoving? I don’t know about you, but that’s not how I define it. And before someone points it out, I’m not saying that violent crime isn’t too high. It is.

    There is a new film release which has just been put on ice thanks to libtard objections.

    It’s called ‘The Hunt’ and the premise of the film is “The film follows 12 strangers, referred to as “deplorables” in the trailer, who mysteriously wake up in a clearing. They do not know where they are or how they got there. They discover that they have been chosen to be hunted in a game devised by a group of rich elites. The hunters gather in a remote facility called the Manor House, but their sport gets derailed when one of the hunted, Crystal (Gilpin), fights back and starts killing them one by one.

    Put another way a groups of liberals gets to hunt a seperate group of kidnapped Trump supporters.

    There are two ways to view this – either the film makers are out to show the true face of the hate filled liberal left, or they are trying to show a view of how the left believes the right view them. Either way they’re not happy about it and have used the El Paso & Dayton shootings to justify their calls to have the release postponed / cancelled.

    Neither are they happy about the film at all, which features some big names.

    Here’s the trailer, see what you think!

    The Government has set up a team to combat fake news about Brexit. The BBC is firmly in their sights. I think that we all know that there will be plenty of BBC lies for them to deal with. Of course the BBC will resort to the tactic of saying that this or that source has reported that …….. , ie they aren’t making any claims themselves merely reporting claims made by others. Still it’s a welcome development and hopefully will turn into a full blown war of words between the government and the state funded broadcaster, which provided a Leaver government wins the next election, could lead to the BBC being got rid of. It would be perfectly possible for a government to make refusal to pay the LF only a civil offence with a maximum fine attached only equivalent to the LF. This would offer millions the longed for opportunity of ditching the BBC at no risk. End of BBC would swiftly follow.

      The cowardly and useless Tories will never take the BBC on, and to this end there is a private prosecution by Judicial review over the blatant bias towards remain.

      To take the Tories seriously would be a grave error of judgement given their track record. They have zero policies and no spine when it comes to confrontation. Half of them would be better placed in the Labour party, but are too screwed up by their wealthy privileged backgrounds to join that party.

      Funny thing is that it’s the women in the party now who show the most backbone and conservative values, the rotten school poshboys are a waste of time.

        On the contrary, I think they’d fit in very well.

        Unfortunately there is no possibility of Brexit being achieved without the Tories , they may be in an electoral pact with TBP , but without Tory MPs joining with TBP MPs and DUP , Bexit will never happen. If there isn’t a pact between the Tories and TBP Brexit won’t happen either. So we have a choice , vote for whichever candidate the pact puts up or kiss Brexit goodbye. The choice is yours.

      Conspiracy stories are great, and the good ones have an element of plausibility.
      Is Epstein dead? Surely with all his wealth he could arrange for videos of his friends involved in sex crimes to be stored and released in the event of a suicide or untimely death? Best do a deal, fake his death, disappear, plastic surgery, no jail, and a new identity.
      Compare photo of the corpse with other pics. Ears and nose are said to be different.

    Just in case you are wondering what the nonsense celebration certain brown people are having that has absolutely no relevance to the vast majority of Christian UKer’s. Don’t think about it, don’t even learn how to pronounce it.

    Instead, do what Christianity has done since this bastard-knock-off religion defecated into existence: fight with the power of the Lord.

    I’m not even religious but made a special point of taking the family to church this morning and you know, we really do do religion the best.

    There is one God (ours): he is British and plays cricket in the afternoon.

    EDIT: No matter what their festival is: throwing flowers at each other or running in a circle around a big stone – none of them even come close to the quality and popularity of Christmas. Chinese New Year comes close but not close enough to worry us Westerners.

    EDIT2: Full of it today… Muslims seem so proud of their stupidity. If I walked around the office saying that an abacus from 1500 years ago will outperform a modern computer, I’d be shown the door. But no, Mr Muslim (and much less so now, but occasional fervent Christians, too) can proudly boost about believing a conman dessert rat. Proudly. Boost. That fiction is fact. I hope never to be so proud of such delusions and thank the Lord that there are sensible souls to try and steer the ship of humanity forward; not crashes into the rocks, or turning around and going back 1500 years.

      The problem is that the CofE has turned into the Church of Socialim. The Archsocialist of Canturbury even writes his drivel for the far left New Statesman magazine.

      The great Satanist Alaistair Crowley said of the devils commandmants – do what thou wilt that shall be the whole of the law.

      The church today follows that satanic command supporting every immoral and sinful practice they can cook up.

      You cannot be a socialist and a Christian, that is an impossibility. Your body and soul are owned by God, in Socialism you are owned by the state.
      Nowhere in the Bible does it say to steal from the productive to give to the non productive, and nowhere does it say to steal from future generations who will have to pay back the borrowings of today.

      2 Thessalonians 3:10 Even while we were with you, we gave you this command: “Those unwilling to work will not get to eat.”

      This is antithetical to Socialism which believes those who do work must support and feed those who refuse to.

      In my opinion the ArchSocialist is absolutely not a Christian and should not be at the head of the CofE, but then he did attend the rotten school and was placed there by Cameron also of the rotten school.

        “Do what though wilt shall be the whole of the law, love is the law, love under will”

        An occultist maybe, but not a satanist, although not seen in church very often

        It is the mark of the mind untrained to take its own processes as valid for all men, and its own judgments for absolute truth“, and “For pure will, unassuaged of purpose, delivered from the lust of result, is every way perfect.“ These expressions can be characterized as having moral, mystical, and socio-political implications. In the Thelemic worldview or model, each person has a “True Will” and (insofar as each person acts in accordance with his or her Will) the nature of a person’s interactions with the world (or universe) is a form of “love” or harmony. This is expressed further by a third metaphor, “every man and every woman is a star,” which portrays the distinct nature of every individual as residing in a non-overlapping point of space and time; collisions between different persons being infrequent if each is aware of—and acting in accordance with—their true purpose in life.

    Isn’t it great to see the overseas reputation of the BBC getting questioned as well as here in Blighty where it is actually paid
    for?

    MSM has exhumed – yet again Mickey Heseltine – to pronounce on Brexit . Mickey was last an elected politician 18 years ago – 18 one – eight – years ago yet at the age of 86 and even collecting £90000 of funds from the EU each year he gets to rant on about remaining .

    I don’t recall any financial declaration prior to being interviewed or any journo saying you have financial skin in the game . Anti democratic traitor .

They’re like demented daleks, spinning round and round, with smoke pouring from every orifice, shrieking “Exterminate, exterminate!” at every perceived right-wing incursion, into their privileged world. It’s sad but also very funny and I’m enjoying each and every stupid remark they make. Long may they continue to make themselves look so completely empty-headed.

    A rare moment listening to BBC radio in the car this afternoon, Tories getting tough on crime, yawn, again, well we will see, stop and search and extra prison places,

    Then the bbc trots on a black guy (a “victim” of stop and search) who states in broken English (without the ability or will to pronounce the letter “T”) and lo and behold catching and punishing knifing murderers is not the answer of course but: more money given to the”Kommuni h i” (sic) yeah that’ll sort it, I dont see that robbery due to poverty is the motive, more like gang violence, drug dealing and a fascination and obsession with violence, misogyny and gang culture which will never change

    So what does our barely literate yoof really want ? to be paid money to stop knifing people it seems, isn’t that how the mafia worked ?

    Daily Mail Online:

    “”People think we’re ‘f****** mad’ for not jailing foreign criminals, says aide””

    “Boriss Johnson’s special adviser Dominic Cummings has launched an extraordinary attack against the ‘f****** mad’ justice system and has vowed to clamp down on dangerous foreign criminals and paedophiles.

    The Prime Minister’s most senior aide stunned civil servants while discussing crime policy around the Cabinet table last week.

    He warned that voters believe politicians are ‘crazy’ for not punishing foreign criminals hard enough.

    Mr Cummings complained that too many foreign criminals who commit serious offences in the UK avoid deportation and even if they are kicked out, many of them return.

    He added: ‘The whole thing is absolutely f****** mad and we’re going to change it.’

    Mr Cummings, who was played by Benedict Cumberbatch in the TV drama Brexit: The Uncivil War, has electrified Downing Street since his appointment as Mr Johnson’s right-hand man.

    He relies heavily on polling and focus groups he conducts himself in pubs around the country.

    The architect of Vote Leave’s stunning victory in the 2016 EU referendum has set about altering the power structures inside No 10 and has huge influence in the new administration.

    Mr Cummings, who is feared by political opponents but attracts devotion from his own side, has vowed to stay by the PM’s side until Brexit Day – October 31. But his fury over criminals suggests he is making policy plans far beyond the next few months.

    Under the European Convention on Human Rights, foreign criminals are often able to delay or avoid deportation on spurious grounds.

    About 12 per cent of the prison population is thought to be from overseas.

    Explaining his forthright leadership style on his blog in 2017, Mr Cummings wrote: ‘Contrary to the media story, I dislike confrontation and rows like most people, but I am very strongly motivated by doing things in a certain way and am not motivated by people in Westminster liking me.’ ”

      The BBC et al will be spending countless hours of virtue signalling defending various brands and colours of imported third worlders who have ‘cultural difficulties ‘ and ‘ challenged integration’.

      Mr Cummings certainly knows where to hit their rant button as well as come up with common sense policies which MSM will describe as ‘ populist ‘ which is a term of abuse in their heads whilst for the majority will be seen as good government .
