    Burning Books and Bricks: a Brief History of Cultural Destruction

    All statues in Labour councils across England and Wales, plus across London and Manchester, will be examined for links to slavery and plantation owners, their leaders have said.
    Sadiq Khan, the London mayor, said the city’s landmarks – including street names, the names of public buildings and plaques – will be reviewed by a commission to ensure they reflect the capital’s diversity.

    The nazis had a department set up for this kind of thing. It was called the Reich Chamber of Culture (Reichskulturkammer). and was set up in 1933 by Joseph Goebbels….

    Anyway,
    The Sigma Iota Rho (SIR) Journal of International Relations is one of the nation’s premier undergraduate journals of international studies. With a national distribution of over 3,000, the Journal offers undergraduates the chance to share their research and findings in topics like economics, politics and history.

    Burning Books and Bricks: a Brief History of Cultural Destruction
    October 12, 2016
    By Chloe Kaczvinsky
    Cultural monuments and sites have historical and personal significance for nations.  A radical group may target such sites to demonstrate a blatant and intentional disregard for a culture’s history and to display the scope of the group’s power over a population. Such tactics have historically been employed in cases of genocide, in which this denigration of physical space symbolizes the destruction a people or a previous history that does not align with the radical group’s cause. Of late, the rise of radical Islam in parts of the Middle East has resulted in the destruction of many monuments and cultural icons. In these cases, radicals believe these symbols violate strict Islamic principles. However, in other instances, this destruction also demonstrates the group’s international presence. The destruction of monuments strives to erase a place’s history and culture.”

    Antifa are quickly going down this road aided and abetted by our national broadcaster. MSM and unbelievably, the conservative government….

      I think he inherited a plantation off his father
      I’m not sure of the details.

      I do know that Nepal politicians owned slaves until the last 30 years
      And wonder if it was similar in Pakistan or Bangladesh.

        There is a Lie going around, that the wealth of Britain and its daughter America, is based on the slave trade, and thus Black Africans. Its accepted as a truism. Thus is born the demand for Reparations.

        Lets consider what wealth is. For thousands of years, almost every country traded and used slaves. Africans were the worst. They not only used slavery but sold their people to the Arabs

        Despite thousands of years of slavery, the general wealth of the planet was essentially the same. The population too didn’t change much, as the productivity, and hence the wealth of the planet could not sustain any more humans.

        What happened to change the world was the invention of the steam engine.Then the subsequent industrialization of Britain first, and then the West. Manpower was replaced by unlimited mechanical power on a gigantic scale, and then by electrical power. Real Wealth grew exponentially, leading to more and more food, better housing, clean water etc etc. The planet’s population also started to grow. Africa now has the highest population growth in the world.

        Surplus wealth lead to the the birth of science as we know it, and the growth of medical invention. Hundreds of millions of people every year lived who would have died otherwise.

        Instead of a few people having some wealth, virtually everyone could have food and medicines etc never imagined. This was wealth so huge, that it makes any wealth from slavery miniscule by comparison.

        Everyone profited, but the credit and thanks is due to Western man. Instead of being grateful, modern times has seen the propagation of the Big Lie, that White man is to blame.

        Test is simple. Remove all contributions of Western man, and within a year, 90% of the world will be dead due to hunger and disease.

          Very well put NCBBC-something here that many will not know or have not been taught in the matter of their poor education.
          That in 1833 Britain allocated 40% of its total budget at that time to buy freedom for all slaves in the Empire. Britain borrowed such a large sum of money for the Slavery Abolition Act that, it wasn’t paid off until 2015. This means that living British Citizens helped pay for the ending of the slave trade with their taxes.
          Perhaps these Black protesters should be reminded of this extraordinary fact-and be reminded also that the development of British Universities in particular would be poorer without the significant donations offered from past business people they now hate so much. Of course we know who is mainly behind such disruption and their reasons are plain to see.

            Didn’t know that Britain spent huge amounts of money to abolish the slave trade.

            When one thinks of it though, it must have been so. Legal binding contracts have to be fulfilled – based on slavery or not. At the time, slavery was considered normal labour practice. Any contractual obligations would have to be fulfilled by law. That is the reason that Britain’s market is considered secure, and practised everywhere. Contractual law and security of property.

            One just have to remove Western man’s engineering civilisation, and starvation would start in less the a few months.

            What would you do to bring food to your family? Anything really. You cant be picky when your family is a day from hunger and malnutrition. If slavery is the only way, then the best one can do is get a good slave owner. Market forces.

          In revolutions, many lies are accepted as truisms, they don’t mind at all. In fact, the bigger the lie, the better. You simply have to repeat it very often. truth and facts don’t come into it.
          Now that you even have the media eager to perpetuate and publicise, and manipulate the lie on behalf of the racist revolutionaries, endlessly, we can -for the first time- follow a major revolution on -screen!
          It’s not often that you get a minority easily imposing its will on a large ‘silent’ majority, in a mature parliamentary democracy. So here is another first.
          You need to have a really good and simple propaganda message, or two, and whayho, it works like a charm.

      Its difficult to understand what is happening to our police. Are they under orders from the government ie Boris Johnson, to appease the cultural terrorists. To what end?

      At every step, the police could have stopped all this nonsense stone dead. Instead they have brought shame on us . But the worst was several policemen knelt down and submitted to the rioters.

      That was the worst. Lets look at the what every policeman represents. On his helmet or cap, is the emblem of the Crown. Under it is EIIR.

      Thus, these kneeling policemen had taken upon themselves, or under orders, for the Crown, along with Her Majesty to down down to the rioters.

      This is so far beyond conception, that I dont think it has ever happened in the great history of our nation.

      Is this a cunning plan to provoke a civil war. There is no doubt we will win. Winner generally takes all.

      Or is it simply a cabinet that is out of its depth?

        The police aren’t run by the Home Secretary any longer that responsibility was largely removed and handed to local councils. Hence the police take their orders not from Westminster but from the City or Town Hall. Just another example , like devolution, which makes the UK less and less governable.

        Part taken from a piece I think is worth showing here-
        The coming of Floyd and the end times of nations.
        The robbing, looting and burning, the beatings of people trying to defend their properties and the random shooting of innocents by both black and white BLM and Antifa scum in the US, supposedly on behalf of a dead thug and career criminal whom the media have turned into some sort of innocent saint, has nothing to do with the reasons for his arrest nor the circumstances of his death, which will, in due course, be openly dealt with by the courts. What any of this has to do with us in the UK is beyond rational explanation, as is the sight of Met Police officers being repeatedly attacked by the same primitive savages whom we have foolishly welcomed into this country in the name of multiculturalism and enrichment…
        …and then ‘taking a knee’ at the feet of the same slavering, predominantly black mob……which was egged on by white co-conspirators who I fervently hope will take that self-asphyxiation process to its ultimate, and for me, rewarding end.
        Indeed, coppers such as those obsequiously kneeling, and their Common-Purposed superiors, disgust me to the extent that I almost vomited at the sight.
        Violent insurrection is both openly and surreptitiously being used by the Democrats, in the USA who failed so ignominiously to unseat President Truump in their three previous attempts, are using this event to mount another attack on President Trump, and, by extension, to likewise attack PM Johnson for failing to take a metaphorical ‘knee’ and offer groveling apologies for something that he and we had nothing to do with.
        Interest-There are at least three GoFundMe pages set up by various family members. The total raised so far is in excess of $15 million. Follow the money and follow the politics and you will see who is really is responsible for this violent debacle on both sides of the Atlantic… and why.

      I shall have to do some research to refind out who said something about the revolution eating its children?
      Certainly Robespierre, Danton, Marat, Trotsky -and quite possibly his assassin sender, Stalin, found out the hard way.
      Could also do a little research on Stalin to see the latest prognosis of the number of dead resulting from his revolutionary zeal, but he leaves Hitler in the shade, by far. Enslavement? Who knows the number imprisoned and/or perished in his Gulags? Alexander Solshenitsyn, who somehow survived, wrote about it in the Gulag Archipelago. Poor man, also had cancer, wrote about it in Cancer Ward. The cancer he typed, of course, was Marxism – Leninism.

      Alas history is not fashionable these days and research seems to be “streng verboten”. Can understand why some ‘schools’ and ‘universities’ have ditched history. Might actually lead people to try and find out what really happened, instead of letting their passions run riot. Can’t have that, can we? Easier to just pick a word. Went to live in the USA.

      Watching in real time as Seattle descends into anarchy

      On Tuesday, the police in Seattle’s Eastern District had initially battled with the rioters, using tear gas and flashbangs. Eventually, recognizing that anything short of a military-style defense was a waste of police time and put police lives at risk, the police abandoned the Eastern Precinct. They shredded important and confidential documents, boarded up the windows, and walked away, leaving the people whom they serve to the mob’s mercy.

    Most walk past our monuments and history in ignorance. To Deliberately search for offence within them is endless and repugnant iconoclasm of the worst kind.

    Across the ages, fundamentalists destroy. The Romans cut down the druidic sacred groves because of their perceived threat. Early Christians deliberately built their churches on native religious meeting places only for the Vikings, in turn, to destroy them. The Christian puritans, of the late medieval period, searched Britain deliberately intent on destroying long forgotten stone monuments to lost gods and heroes, erasing stone circles that to them were an affront to their god. Henry VIII, because of religious politics, left us only the skeletons of once great Abbey’s we now pay to visit.

    What is beginning here exactly the same. Farage is 100% correct. This is a Liberal Taliban, only it’s not the Buddha statues of the Bamiyan Valley, it’s virtually every single historic British monument that will now be lobbied for decommission. But that will only be the beginning. They want to rewrite British history in their image. They want a structural reset that suits their Marxist aims. The BBC today pulled ‘Little Britain’ (no great loss but symbolic), expect much more.

    In the past, puritanism was sponsored from the top. Why then do we have a gaping black hole of leadership against this insanity? Where do I vote to democratically put back the statue of Edward Colston? How do I vote against BLM, a movement I personally see as nothing more than a trojan horse for Liberal Marxism. A movement I fundamentally disagree with.

    I do realise it’s not fashionable to be against movements with anti-racism on the ticket. However, this mob forces us all to pick sides. It’s that divisive. It’s Brexit mark II. There are no fences here to sit on.

    The BBC have already chosen to be the broadcasting wing, giving endless oxygen to their fundamentalism, Sir Keir and Sadiq Khunt (sic) will no doubt be the political wing.

    Where the hell do the rest of us turn? Is it down to us to protect our proud history if the authorities we pay taxes for wont?

      This is a coordinated attack by the Democrats in America and the Remainers in Britain. If Pres Trump loses in November, then we will lose our support for WTO and an American trade deal.

      The government will not have much option to schedule another referendum to rejoin the EU. For this, not just Labour and Scot MPs but a large fraction of the Remainer Tories will vote for.

      Then a rejuvenated EU along, with a Democrat America, will pursue the Climate Change agenda full steam, paying trillions to Africa as Reparations, but under the guise of Climate Change agenda.

        Yes it’s a good analysis of the broad picture. If Trump loses the Globalists will have total control and we will be forced back inside the EU and the West will continue to spread its accumulated wealth around the globe to the detriment of its own people but benefit of the elite. A free MSM would be quickly able to convince people of this but of course they are all part of the Globalist movement. We can also be certain that the Globalists will ensure that nothing like 2016 can ever happen again.

          Good of you to remind me that policing is in local control . I presume Khan has the last word in London. This would explain the treatment of Pres Trump, who was invited by Her Majesty.

          So our most important ally, and a president who openly likes the UK, was treated with disdain by London, the capitol of the UK. Neither May or Johnson did anything.

          This is absurd. A President of our most important ally, invited by Her Majesty, was treated with contempt in London.

          It has been clear that both May’s and Johnson’s heart is not with Brexit, but in the EU. Both have done everything they could to postpone and delay.

          By design then, the final moving out of EU date is at the end of Dec. 2020. By 4th November, we will know the outcome of the US election. If Pres Trump loses, Boris Johnson, with a majority of Tories and the rest of Remainer parliament, will have a month to schedule a new EU referendum. With the BBC in full cry, we will be back in the EU.

          This explains

          1. The cold manner of PM Boris Johnson’s of treatment Pres Trump.

          2. Boris Johnson needs the BBC to turn British opinion on the EU.

          If Boris Johnson wants, with his huge majority, he can bring police control back to Westminster. But he wont, as he is satisfied with the present arrangement. So too with the BBC.

          If the PM wants he can do what Margaret Thatcher did to the GLC. But he wont, as its not in the interest of the Globalists, or the EU.

          What we see now is that control of law and order in London, is already in Muslim hands. And where London goes, too the rest of the UK.

      GWF – believe it, arch beeb propagandist, Ritula Shah has just gleefully confirmed it on radio 4. Not that I would believe a word she says, but simply because everything is taking the predictable course.
      This is the next stage of the revolutionary zeal: fellow travellers start taking down statues ‘voluntarily’. By ‘popular demand’ Lenin would have said. We are learning a lot about how the late, great Soviet Union came to be. history rewind before our very eyes -right down to clenched fist salutes from MPs.
      The UK: a little late with the revolution, but what the heck? A little help from the obliging beeb & co may well have given that final push?
      R4 almost seemed worthy of a listen, with Emma Bunce, talking about space in the ‘Life Scientific’.
      Then along came Ritula with her ‘news’ bulletin. Off switch. The introduction spent a lot of time on the…well, I’ll leave you to guess.

      How did the action happen so fast ?
      Someone demanded it .. “The statue of Robert Milligan was removed from West India Quay after the Museum of London demanded that it’s owners remove it.
      Government had no involvement.”
      .. and who FUNDS the museum ?

      The Museum is funded by the Sainsbury family.
      Lord Sainsbury, a Labour peer, spent nearly £8m trying to stop Brexit.

      How extraordinary that an Arab as in the case of S Khan should make such a statement, when it was his ancesters who were extensive slave traders throughout Africa and the Middle East as well coastal Europe and who grew rich a powerful on the backs of the Black African-does he not know this? or rather does he prefer not to recognise the facts. How on earth did London allow this individual become its Mayor? Well perhaps we all know why.

        Hammer and Sickle? On the cover of my A.Solshenytsin copy of ‘Cancer Ward’. The Soviet Union ditched the idea in 1990, cos they found out it was a real cancer. So had AS.
        But quite possibly coming to Britain soon: see ‘forthcoming attractions’, strictly black and white and grainy. There are sounds from Highgate cemetery: I can hear the old guy calling; he is still fully intact, unlikely to be removed by Mayor Khan or any of our current revolutionaries.

        The African tribal system created and ran the trade in slaves. The more powerful predominantly West African tribes – centered on modern Nigeria – subjugating and selling off weaker tribes initially from their immediate areas, subsequently from deeper into Equatorial Africa, but again initially for domestic use.
        The East African trade used the (modern) Kenyan catchment area, serviced by Arab traders for sales within the Middle East.
        Later, as the value of slaves rose due to the development of the Caribbean and the Americas, the Arabs took over the management of both the West and East African coasts. European traders were simply shippers, the capture, forced marching, penning, assessment and initial sales were organised almost exclusively between black Africans and Arabs.

    I have an idea for raising money for our bankrupt (morally as well as financially) government to consider.

    A Luvvie tax ! 10% to levied on higher earners on top of the normal tax bands. Most of the so called ‘creative’ sector employ few other people save in the context of servants.
    Also no tax concessions for anyone working abroad. You can’t simply hop in a private jet to the USA and suddenly pay no tax – Anyone who wants to keep their British citizenship can damn well pay for it !

    Oh, and if you do decide to abandon ship to pay zero tax to the exchequer the media are banned from reporting any comments of a political nature by you.

    Religion has clearly moved away from deities and into the worship of Socialism to it’s high time religious buildings lost their tax free status and were rated as business premsis and taxed accordingly.

    Not an issue for the Mosques as the Saudis, Omanis, Kuwatis, Qataris etc etc will be queuing up to pay for them and frankly we need the money!
    The Synagogues can easily afford it, as can the Gurdwaras and the Temples, I do believe the Roman Catholic Church is pretty flush and can afford to fund itself especially with the Eastern European influx.
    Which leave the Church of Socialism with possibly the worst Archbishop it’s ever had. A man another product of the rotten school illustrating just how appallingly crap its alumni really are, who appears to take delight in attacking his own congregation and I don’t think I’ve ever heard talk about Jesus, the Bible and God.
    Presiding over one of the largest Exodus’s from the pews, having to attract funding to pay for the huge number of building the Church owns should concentrate his tiny mind wonderfully into perhaps attracting back sufficient numbers to balance the books.

    A longish letter in the D/Mail from an Haitian-American immigrant who is now a British Citizen.

    She queries why there are no black doctors, dentists, or architects, and what happened to ambitious black British children. According to her English friends they could not recall having a uni friend who wasn’t Caucasian or Asian. And ends by saying that Britian’s racism is as ruthless and cold in slowly killing the aspirations of Afro-Caribbean British people and making them feel excluded from capitalist society.

    So once again we indigenous peoples are castigated by yet another ‘immigrant’, who relishes in the title of British citizen, and there is certainly no mention of her relinquishing her citizenship and returning to Haiti. And why is there a lack of ‘ambitious black children’ ? could be what they lack in academic intelligence they make up for in streetwise astuteness knowing that more money could be made selling drugs.

    These kids are given the same opportunity as their other counterparts, but perhaps their parents don’t want them to have further education and need them to get out and earn money instead.

    Is there another country in the world where migrants have settled and take delight in criticising whatever regime/government/peoples in the land they now call home? I never hear of English ex pats moaning about their new countries of residence, no, its the British soft touch again. And I’m really hacked off with these foreigners – citizens or not, having a pop at the country I was born and raised in.

      Brissles, in support.
      A primary school teacher friend, no lover of the unions and the politicised profession, points out that, aged 6, children have no idea of black oppression and BAME politicisation of issues, real or imagined, they are just children. And in class, assuming of course they turn up, they get exactly the same teaching and the same opportunities as everyone else. Indeed in London (with high BAME population) , per capita spending on children in schools is way higher than anywhere else.

      Maybe the incidence of single parent families (white, except for gypsies, 6%, asian 8%, black 20%) might have something to do with boring things like aspiration and male role models. Which I suppose is all the fault of us whities.

        Football is an area where there BAME people do have a genuine grievance.It is very strange that a third of players are black and yet the amount of managers and coaches is so small.
        BBC radio prog Great Lives recently did a profile of the late Billy Bremner who apparently did try to do something about the endemic racism at Leeds Utd (that’s why he was on Great Lives!)
        and Bremner has said that when Leeds had a black player in their team players in other teams would disgracely try to provoke the black player with the N word etc
        International black players have said that there were international teams like Argentina who were notorious for racially abusing them including the 1998 team that included Pottichini and Simeone – 2 of the most high profile managers of recent years.
        It is also strange how few Black people are visible in football stadiums to watch their local club play.One has to assume that feel uncomfortable there

          I’m not so sure about coloured people having a grievance about footy management … I know that FIFA requires formal training ‘ experience for people to get ‘manager /coach ‘ status . … so if it is structured to deprive certain players from becoming managers I don’t know .

          I’ve often thought that professional footy is a pretty closed world – particularly the prem – which I used to regularly go and watch . As a fan top end footy is very expensive and economics is one barrier – it certainly explains why the average age of those attending is now ‘mature ‘ as opposed to the 16 years old the past .

          I’ve never heard an explanation as to why ex footballers who are black – land up as pundits and not ( successful )managers…..

      I am afraid Boris is becoming more like Chamberlain as opposed to his idea of becoming another Churchillian leader. He lost the plot when he surrendered the streets to extinction rebellion. The Antifa mob saw the weakness and took advantage. I fear the next thing to go will be Brexit . He could have dealt with Al Beeb as soon as he had the huge majority in the elections . Boris may be weak, but where are the rest of the Tory MPs ? The Brexit Party should begin now for the next election.

    Back in simpler times one was born, grew up a bit, learnt to speak and asked questions. A couple of them would have been about what you were and where you lived. Many a child must have written, ‘the universe, the galaxy, the Earth, Europe etc.’. That was when they found out that they were English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh or Yorkshire folk.

    Later on they would learn about Kings and Queens, the lives of ancient peoples and famous individuals. It just was, they weren’t expected to justify Henry marrying more than once or Alfred’s cooking skills.

    Some of these children might have found themselves living somewhere else, a few miles away, maybe many thousands, it doesn’t really matter. They might then have asked new questions like, why is this town where it is, or why is it called what it is? Again, things that just are, nothing that they have any control over.

    Now we live in more complicated times, open door-immigration has produced schools that ‘proudly’ declare that 150 different languages are spoken within their walls. Do 150 different ‘histories’ now have to be taught, (impossible and who mediates between them?). The history of Henry and Alfred is the history of ‘place’, it is the common factor of all who are British, either by adoption, place of birth or heritage. It isn’t under the control of any of these Britons, it just is.

    Those that reject this history either aren’t British, rather they are invaders, or worse, cowardly quisling collaborators.

    How to tell if a BBC radio comedy programme is going to be any good before you’ve heard it

    If you don’t like to waste time on dross, it pays to listen to the continuity announcer just before a BBC radio comedy programme. It you hear something along the lines of, “This programme includes dated attitudes and opinions that some listeners might find offensive,” then there’s a decent chance the programme will be worth listening to. It will be old, certainly, but it will most likely be funny; it might even be hilarious, and paradoxically it won’t contain even a smidgeon of offensiveness.

    If however the programme is not preceded by the BBC’s moral health warning, it is likely to be fairly new, and as dull as ditchwater, having had any traces of real humour wrung out of it in the name of the BBC’s overweening political correctness. And not only will it be dull, it will be highly offensive. Attitudes will be displayed, opinions will be aired, jokes will be attempted, and assumptions will be made, all of which will be diametrically opposed to the belief system and moral code of a large section of the radio audience. The tiresome repetition of the BBC’s left/liberal metropolitan political and social bias will grate on many listeners. More perceptive listeners will be angered because they will realise that they have been subjected to yet another creepy tendril of the BBC’s great social engineering project.

    But it’s that health warning that is really repugnant. “Dated attitudes and opinions that some listeners might find offensive”! By the slimy ‘some listeners’ we know that they mean, ‘all good, right-thinking people’. By implication therefore, the attitudes, opinions, even the vocabulary of most of my generation and previous ones (and anyone to the right of Karl Marx) are offensive. Offensive to who? Of course we know the answer: much of the comedy of all the ages before the present one is offensive to those who share the BBC’s mindset. They haughtily hog the moral high ground – and the rest of us can go to blazes; we can just jolly well pay our licence fees and shut the fuck up.

    It’s outrageously intolerant of the BBC to condemn large parts of the moral fabric of all previous generations as ‘offensive’ and ‘outdated’, without any discussion or debate. Much to the disappointment of the BBC many of us are not yet dead. We children of the thirties, forties, and fifties still pay our TV licences; we still vote; and we are still entitled to live by and believe in the moral code that has got us safely through our long lives. We haven’t needed the BBC’s rather spooky left/liberal metropolitan political correctness; we’ve always managed perfectly well with common sense, good manners, and consideration for others.

    Al Beeb is attempting to ‘re-educate’ the people of Great Britain very much like the state broadcasters of communist regimes. Viewing figures are dropping while younger generations are seeking other forms of media . The licence fee cash cow is dying. Programs can only get worse and Al Beeb will become insignificant. It is the author of its own demise.

    Apart from them having morphed into being the greedy cash grabbing factories they have become, could this be down to a reduction in genuine skilled staff and teaching of value in favour of political tub-thumping and indoctrination?

    I know from personal experience that the students are more likely to be blinkered lefty mantra shouting man-child idiots rather than balance thinking adults.

    Perhaps this is why its so easy to get them to assemble as a mindless rabble for any “right-on” cause of the moment as we are seeing acted out before our eyes.

    Now, the white working class kids who have found an identity in football gangs are termed agitators by the msm for wanting to defend the 85% white indigenous peoples culture because the police stand by and refuse to defend it.

    Those white kids regularly pilloried by the msm for lack of education and joining gangs….

    Funny that the other lot who screw their education up coz it not cool innit, and turn to gangs with guns and knives, and blame everyone around except themselves for lack of opportunity are feted by the media

    if they ever deigned to attend a job inteview dressed with trousers halfway down their arse and talking like a lobotomised jamaican with tourettes I wonder what the result would be ?

    How come George Floyd can have a PAST
    … but Britain can’t ??

    We judge people for what they ARE
    not what they WERE
    …. hence the George of the drug gangs and the terror is the George on the past
    If he has served his time, come out reformed and serves his community, we respect this new George
    and Jesus in the bible taught us that we FORGIVE him.

    As people’s life is a journey
    Britain’s life is a journey too.
    Britain was the country that had slavery abroad
    and then rethought and led the world in encouraging countries to give it up.

    We do have a concept that things were off their time,
    thus great kings of the past may have done vengeance attacks ..and we wouldn’t do that now.

    And how any politician can rip down British statues
    and then next breath say
    “Mohammed, PBUH, peace be upon him” ??
    How can they without addressing the issue that Mo took slaves, traded slaves and never spoke of the concept of abolition ?
    Do you know that bit in the Koran where slavery was abolished ?
    neither do I.

    Each nation is entitled to have a past
    and be judged for what we do today.

    Furthermore we don’t
    “Punish the children for the sins of the father”.

    It doesn’t happen very often but a small cheer for none other than Rick Nobinson on Toady. And about time too on his salary, I hear you say.

    He was interviewing the leader of the National Association of Head Teachers, though amateurishly he did not mention that the NAHT is almost entirely primary school focussed. The context was the abandonment of government hopes to open schools more before the Summer.
    The NAHT leader revealed himself as a whingeing why-we-can’t person. Pathetic attempts followed to blame the government for pre-CV underfunding and by implication a ludicrous argument that things would be better if schools had only 10-15 kids in each class pre-lockdown. He blamed the government for lack of planning but in fact it is his members responsibility for school operations. In short the NAHT union leader is part of the problem not of the solution.

    But readers. I do ask you not to tar everyone with the same brush. There are plenty of teachers who do want to see the kids again and do want to teach them and to find ways of doing so. The achool at which I volunteer is a case in point. We have measured up the classrooms and other rooms, worked out how many we can fit in and will be open next Monday with a one way system, lots of hand sanitiser stations, and a revised timetable. Our head and his team has put in a big shift to make this happen and written to parents with lots of info. and encouraging the kids to attend. Yet he expects for his efforts only about half of them to do so. That’s not his fault but will mainly be down to lily-livered parents.

    Let”s just make sure we direct our praise and criticism at the right deserving targets.

      Is there no-one under the age of 60 with a functioning brain anymore?

      Around here we have notices requesting vehicle drivers to ‘social distance’ themselves from pedestrians, why?

      Has no-one under the age of 60 ever fried some bacon, (probably not, it’s haram) or burnt a bit of toast? Did they not notice that the smell pervades every cubic centimetre of the house?

      ‘Social distancing’ of a group that spends many hours in an aircraft, train, bus or classroom is beyond stupid.

      In a few short years we have gone from a crazy world where liberal means non-liberal, democrat means non-democrat, black means white and white means black.

      Now black is black is black. There is only one ‘truth’ and any resemblance to reality is an unfortunate coincidence that ‘progressivism’ will soon fix.

          AslSeelt, Stew, G – I fear we constantly see evidence of being in the first stage of a revolutionary situation by many, many ‘little’ signs, as well as the big picture. A minority is out to overthrow a majority in the same way that in the US the work to oust Trump BY ANY MEANS the day he first walked into the White House, began.
          One ‘little’ thing is that The Law is -in practice- null and void. The Law is now what the revolutionaries say it is. Planning permission is only relevant to the law-abiding majority. The revolutionaries set the public agenda, they will use ANY MEANS, and they are already mostly ‘beyond the Law.’ to them ‘planning permission is a non-existent joke; it is completely irrelevant.
          Councils have been openly blackmailed into removing some statues (but only those the revolutionaries find offensive).Many of the people IN those councils have tacitly begun to support the Revolution and are willing to ditch ‘The Law’- another classic ‘little’ sign.
          What the majority thinks is irrelevant. A classic revolutionary situation, that is already almost ‘post-democratic’ in some ways.
          If it continues on the classic path, parliament will become irrelevant. That is -in part- because many of those IN PARLIAMENT have tacitly become revolutionaries, although they will pretend otherwise.
          Like the media, universities etc. parliament becomes itself, a driver of the revolution .
          The Blairs and the Merkels of this world have prepared this situation long, long ago. Like Obama in the US, they are still at it.
          THEY HAVE HAD US ALL FOOLED.
