‘Can’t tell the difference between the fire and the firefighters’

  Does Sadiq Khan think terrorism is ‘part and parcel’ of living in London now?  Bet he’d like a few kufir ‘uncle toms’ to shop any white supremacist they think is ‘radical’…maybe he has also changed his tune about Muslims who want to work with the government to prevent terrorism and won’t be labelling them ‘uncle toms’ as he has in the past.    Who radicalised the Finsbury Park attacker?  … Continue reading

Identity Politics

  Maybe I’m going soft but sometimes think that I might be being too quick to criticise the BBC when they refuse to report eye-witness claims that a terrorist shouted ‘Allah Akbar’ as he launched his attack…maybe the BBC is being diligent and responsible…checking the facts and getting the story 100% right. If that though ever crosses my mind again I will just have to remind myself about today and … Continue reading

Flame and Blame

  Labour are going into overdrive blaming the government and the local Tory council for the fire at Grenfell Tower…isn’t there a missing layer of government there?  Where is Labour’s London Mayor?  Why didn’t he leap in to assist Kensington and Chelsea instead of criticising them as he does now…. Mr Khan echoed their point, saying: “People are angry, not simply at the poor response in the days afterwards from … Continue reading

Et Tu Brute

  The knives are out for May and not just the usual suspects that want Corbyn to occupy No10 but also those whose loyalty to Party and country is superceded by their loyalty to the unelected, undemocratic EU. The BBC gave a lot of publicity to the treacherous words of Portillo and Matthew Parris without bothering to reveal that these two turncoats are, as well as being Tory wets, in … Continue reading

Lily the Pinko Limpet

  Our blessed ‘Saviour of the Human race’…Lily the Pinko Limpet Allen….her ‘medicinal compound’?  A concentration camp, a compound, for the Rich probably.   Is there any cause too fashionable for Lily ‘The Limpet’ Allen not to attach her name to?  Refugees, wicked capitalists and now the victims of a towering inferno caused by neo-liberal greed and class discrimination.  Guess her record sales are in decline….93 in the charts last … Continue reading

Looting the Bodies

Corbyn lies to Peston once again, and again and again…people not being found accomodation? As of this morning we have housed 109 households in hotels in west London, if people are still in need please contact Housing 020 7361 3008 — RBKC (@RBKC) June 16, 2017   After the Battle of Waterloo the thousands of bodies that littered the battlefield were variously stripped of their clothing, their possessions, their valuables … Continue reading

She hid from Shahid?

  Theresa May is being pilloried for not going in amongst the people and meeting the victims of the Grenfell Tower blaze but why did she not pay such a public high profile visit? We are told it was because she was advised not to go on security grounds…. On the BBC’s Question Time programme on Thursday, Conservative defence minister Tobias Ellwood, said there were “security reasons” why Mrs May … Continue reading

Shameless

Huge hostility to the media at #Grenfelltower – @jonsnowC4 is being mobbed. pic.twitter.com/6Tiv2mSXrw — Victoria Cook (@victoriacook) June 15, 2017 C4’s Jon Snow met with an angry reaction as he showed up to report on the London fire… “Right, you didn’t come here when people were telling you that the building was unsafe! That is not ‘newsworthy’. “You come here when people die. Why?” Not surprising really as you might … Continue reading

Midweek Open Thread

  As Jeremy Bowen tells us of the charismatic, legendary, young revolutionary freedom fighter that was Arafat who took on the ominous might of the Israeli oppressors, becoming the father of the Palestinian nation that genuine peacemakers would miss upon his death [a death possibly, probably, due to Israeli poisoning]…quickly brushing over Munich and all that, we can thank our lucky stars to have such a trustworthy, accurate and impartial … Continue reading

The antidote to nationalistic poison…you can’t win ’em all

Battle of Medway: The English defeat that’s largely forgotten Still relevant to our modern times. “The problem is that our naval history inevitably focuses on the wars we won and the great heroes who fought in them,” said historian Dr David Davies. “By any criterion, it’s one of the worst British defeats of all time. “Personally, I’d say it’s important to know about it in this country as an antidote … Continue reading
