This is the company that rips off suppliers, workers and customers alike. The company whose aggressive expansion policy has ripped the heart out of communities resulting in over 450 local campaigns against them according to Tescopoly. Tesco ensure any local resistance to their presence is bulldozed away, sometimes literally, as in the destruction of popular local beauty spot Titnore Woods.
So let’s not pretend Tesco are in the midst of some grand humanitarian crusade. Tesco don’t do ethics, they do profit. Should that change their shareholders might well have something to say about it.
Funnily enough, when I link to my post about the Bilderberg Group on the social media, I am often accused of being a “tinfoil hat wearer” (and the other usual Pavlovian responses from those people who have been trained always to link the word “conspiracy” with the word “theory”).
But, as this Tesco story (one of hundreds, apparently) demonstrates, the World runs on conspiracy facts. Many people cannot cope with the idea that things ain’t what they seem – that such things as conspiracies, secret societies and nepotism have such a huge effect on their lives which they want to believe are free, uncomplicated and predictable. It’s known as cognitive dissonance.
This devilish Tesco skulduggery involves the deliberate degeneration of an entire town centre, made possible through property companies set up by Tesco directors and agents as fronts in order to secure the land and drive out the tenants of the former shops, which resulted in the town centre of Linwood, near Glasgow (and most famous as Scotland’s car manufacturing capital until 1981), earning the Carbuncle of the Year Award in 2011 .
Due to property fronts acting on behalf of Tesco's destroying the shopping centre, "The chemist and the optician opted to relocate to portacabins."
But nobody in Linwood was aware of that. Tesco had come to town and was rescuing their shopping centre from the blight of Balmore. Locals worked enthusiastically with Tesco to develop their plans. Some even appeared in their promotional videos.
Then in 2010, the folk of Linwood discovered the truth about what had been going on. Dallas Rhodes’ company Balmore Properties was not an independent retail property company.
It was set up as a front on behalf of Tesco.
Rhodes was approached by Tesco to acquire the lease on the company’s behalf. “It is common for Tesco to use and agent and secure land,” a spokesperson for Tesco said at the time. “Balmore was an agent for Tesco at that time.”
Some commercial property sources will happily claim that this is normal practice, that if owners get wind that a major supermarket chain is sniffing around, the value of the property will double or triple.
That’s why I find the likes of their “vouchers for schools” so offensive. While they tear the heart out of some communities, they give the illusion that they care about your area. And I have noticed how politicians love getting in on the act. They make sure we lose nigh on half our earnings in one tax or another (supposedly to pay for such things as schools) then praise this retail behemoth for giving a miniscule amount of their enormous profit to buy a relatively tiny amount of equipment for schools.
The scheme itself is celebrating 21 years. Fifty two schools in Bradford South collected over 400,000 vouchers worth £12,000 in equipment in the last year. Gerry was delighted to be asked again to present “goodie boxes” to the twelve schools which collected the most vouchers. He visited the Great Horton, Buttershaw and Queensbury stores to meet pupils and teachers. The children were excited with their boxes and had many ideas of what resources they would like their schools to purchase.
Gerry said “I have been presenting these awards for the last four years and it has become an enjoyable tradition. I would like to thank Tesco’s for their commitment to the local community in this and other schemes which benefit local schools”.
Yeah. Right. So that works out at an average of £230.77 per school. One car boot sale in each school car park could have raised more. A jumble sale in the assembly hall with pupils selling cakes and other homemade goods – no horse meat in sight (I had to mention that one too) – could have raised many times this amount.
Wisbech Grammar School raised £1,900 a couple of weeks ago when their hall was transformed into a Spring fayre comprising 38 stalls, where “stylish wares and home baked goodies” raised a big chunk of the money they need to sponsor a guide dog for the blind.
Obviously, their concern for others in their community is more important to them than buying “equipment” for their own use.
Incidentally, Tesco’s give out a voucher for every £10 spent, so those 400,000 vouchers collected in Bradford South cost customers at least four million pounds. All to raise twelve grand for schools. That equates to no more than 0.3% of sales from the people who collected the vouchers during the weeks the scheme runs, so each voucher is worth less than 3p to schools.
Just to show that Tory MPs are just as daft, here’s one (Charlie Elphicke) benefitting from the photo opportunity of handing out some of Tesco’s “boxes of goodies”. What sort of “equipment” are they giving away in such small boxes? I was imagining sports equipment, but I expect it is IT-related gadgets which Tesco imports for next to nothing and so perhaps grossly inflates their perceived generosity of 3p per voucher.
If you still aren’t boycotting Tesco’s, next time, you might want to tell them to keep their almost worthless vouchers and support events at your local schools instead.
According to the Blairgowrie Advertiser, this school in Perthshire now has some “equipment” that the national £80 billion expenditure, at the time, on what passes for education, could not stretch to,
The staff and pupils of Glenisla Primary School thank everyone who kindly donated Tesco vouchers for schools, with an especially big thank you to Mr Rule and his friends at Blairgowrie Probus Club who donated a total of 2500 vouchers.
This year a total of 10,580 vouchers were collected. A total of 21,462 vouchers were banked in previous years, giving a final total of 32,042. The school now has enough for a computer.
Thanks to the locals spending a third of a million pounds in Tesco’s!
But after their utterly outrageous behaviour in towns like Linwood, how can you enjoy your food bought from this parasitical corporation?
Tom Harris no doubt "proudly" wearing his poppy in remembrance of the men and women he helped send to be killed and maimed in fake wars, based on lies. And a kick in the teeth for the millions of Britons who suffered to defend our freedom over centuries, only for these EUrophiles to give away those freedoms to Brussels and elsewhere.
This all happened shortly before the terrible events at the Boston marathon…
I am rarely on Twitter these days and about three weeks ago I wondered if Tom Harris, Labour MP for Glasgow South, had blocked me, like several of his comrades have. I tweeted to him:
So a few days later, I did send a friend request, which he duly accepted. The main reason for my barrage of comments on his blog was because he seemed to be of above average intelligence for a Labour politician and I thought (stupidly, as it turns out) that he could maybe be deprogrammed with daily doses of alternative viewpoints.
But for those two or three years, he simply dug his heels in and insisted that everything was a “conspiracy theory”: the easy answer for useful idiots who are unable to face the consequences of their horrendous errors.
I posted a link* [NB for some reason, that link no longer exists. You can read about it and watch the video here.] for him to the recent case of Tony Rooke who refused to buy a television licence under Section 15, Article 3 of the Terrorism Act because the BBC covered up the true events of the 9/11 attacks and had prior knowledge of the collapse of building 7, announcing it over twenty minutes before it fell (which happened in near free-fall speed, despite not being hit by a plane. This could not have happened unless the building had been thoroughly and professionally wired with explosives to produce a controlled demolition: impossible in the time between the Twin Towers attack and the collapse of Building 7).
Under Section 15, Article 3 of the Terrorism Act, a person commits an offence if he—
(a)provides money or other property, and
(b)knows or has reasonable cause to suspect that it will or may be used for the purposes of terrorism.
Considering the expert witnesses prepared to back up Mr Rooke and that the judge found the defendant not guilty, I wondered if Tom Harris might have had second thoughts about his previously held rigid beliefs.
In fact, I wondered if Tom Harris had changed his opinion on certain matters in the years we had not communicated. As you can see, I was not trying to be provocative (to start with!).
What were his uninvited insults all about? Then the “threat” of being unfriended by the great Tom Harris unless I behave myself and agree with everything he stands for. These MPs really think they’re something, don’t they? I was so disgusted with him, I was about to unfriend him, but I thought, no – let him go to the bother and show himself up to be the usual petty little ignoramus, like so many of his comrades. I expect many people suck up to them because they are under the impression that they are important. Some MPs are useful as highly-paid social workers, who can sort out a problem with the council or Benefits Agency by writing a letter. Then they become a “hero” to that constituent.
As for matters of national importance and public safety and guaranteeing our freedoms, they are positive and active menaces.
As Tony Rooke says on the video via the link: go to the police or a lawyer or anyone you have to, but “don’t bother petitioning your MPs; they’re a complete shower of sh*t in my opinion”. Is Tom Harris guilty of ignoring evidence of false flag terrorism? I think that he is.
This same Tom Harris, who doesn’t indulge in “paranoid lies and deception”, believed that Saddam had WMDs and could attack us in 45 minutes. How’s that for believing in paranoid lies and deception? MPs do it better than anyone, so it is hardly surprising when the truth is a stranger to them.
Crimes against international law are committed by men, not by abstract entities, and only by punishing individuals who commit such crimes can the provisions of international law be enforced.
One thing is for sure, in my opinion. These useful idiots who vote for wars based on lies and who have deliberately subverted our culture far more successfully than the KGB ever could have, should be tried for their crimes against this country and her people.
And what about the cultural genocide happening all across the West? This surely counts as treason. Blair had the law changed in 1998 to make sure that this was no longer a capital offence, but someone pointed out to me the other day that, as he had the law changed with treason in mind, it may not be a valid change. This is something else to consider.
There is already a growing movement to have the Big Boys like Blair and Cameron arrested for treason. I say, let us extend this to all the other useful idiots in politics and the fake charities, like Common Purpose. It is time for Nuremberg-style trials to bring justice and thus help restore the country to pre-subversion values.
The “authorities” love to collect all the information they can about us. I say it is time to gather all the evidence we can against these destroyers of our country.
The “authorities” do not listen to us – mostly. You can see from the attitude of Tom Harris what they really think of us. If you are a blogger, or have spent years on the social media, as I have, and had occasional face-to-face meetings, trying to get through to these individuals, you know this. It should be a matter for the police and courts to sift through the evidence WE PROVIDE to get these traitorous criminals brought to justice.
I now, finally, have the time and inclination to write about the life, death (and aftermath) of Margaret Thatcher. The Peter Brookes cartoon, incidentally, was published in The Times two days before the 1983 general election. It is equally valid thirty years later, as the “left” have their talons extended. A few venomous snakes and scorpions wouldn’t go amiss now either.
I don’t remember anyone else’s death producing such a clear-cut division of love and hate. I’m not sure which is more unsettling: the almost deification or the open hatred. I’m sure you have read enough of both already without me offering up some quotes.
I was almost sixteen when she became Prime Minister and 27 when she was ousted. I remember Michael Heseltine on Clive Anderson Talks Back in 1990 (I watched the series many times until my videos all turned mouldy after moving into a damp flat) and he was exasperated that Clive kept asking him if he would like to be PM and what he would do if he were PM. He kept asking to change the subject, denying that he desired to be PM. A few weeks later, he was instrumental in ousting Mrs T and stood in the leadership election.
He finished runner-up in that election to some grey, specky, failed bus conductor who used to be Chancellor of the Exchequer.
But what was life really like during those eleven and a half years of “Thatcherism”? From my perspective, I received a far better education than children seem to get today, although I would call thirteen years of state education rather a waste of time, even then.
I had started a BSc course in electrical engineering in the Autumn of 1981, but dropped out after the first term. That was weird, because I didn’t really know what I wanted to do for a living, other than be an entrepreneur, which I later became (somewhat), aged about forty. I don’t know if it was a discussion with the school’s careers advisor or how it happened, but it was somehow decided that I was to study electrical engineering. I guess they had to do something with me, if they wouldn’t issue me with an office, a loan and loads of business contacts to start my entrepreneurial career!
But at least those three almost intolerable months at Paisley Tech. didn’t leave me in debt. Even though both my parents worked, I was still entitled to a grant, which, if I correctly recall, was over £400 a term, plus my train fares were paid. I had to fork out for books, which weren’t cheap, but I didn’t need to work or take out loans and credit cards. It wasn’t like Labour’s “vision” of education (x 3), where half of school leavers were sent to further education purely for cynical and sadistic political reasons, leaving millions of young people seriously in debt, exposing them to a few more years’ worth of socialist dogma and creating the conditions to help justify mass immigration to subvert our country.
You see, it may be seen as “elitist” that only the most intelligent in society study for degrees, but it’s kind of the point that you need to be reasonably intelligent or you are wasting your time, and nowadays, costing yourself tens of thousands of pounds in tuition fees and living expenses, when you have been sold a lie.
My first attempt at being a businessman, post-college, was a flop, so I took any old part-time job to make ends meet (I refused to sign on). Sometimes I was denied a job for being “over-qualified”. That was irritating, but I managed to convince one lady at a local factory that I could cope with the tedium of making nuts and bolts all day and she gave me the job, but she was right. The tedium was immense – and I only ever got to make the bolts, not the nuts! I lasted three or four months there before having to resign or I would have gone nuts myself.
But there were jobs around, and that was the point. People capable of coping with jobs I found tedious and unfulfilling, seemed to manage fine, while those who were capable of getting a real benefit from university then managed to get decent jobs at the end of their course. Now that we are all supposedly “equal”, the natural order has been mangled and we are much worse off. Bright people are stacking shelves, like I did for a few years (self-imposed, you could argue), and less intelligent folk are at university studying something utterly useless, like Will Self’s course in Uxbridge. He is “Professor of Contemporary Thought” at Brunel University.
No doubt all these courses, which have no apparent value to the future prosperity of the student or country, will produce the next generation of supermarket shelf-stackers – people who will never be able to keep up with the cost of living and pay back their student debts.
I was finally able to get a proper job (of sorts) in 1985 in North Harrow (which is a mile or two northwest of Harrow). Although £100 a week was marvellous compared to the £48 at the factory a year before, I did have to start paying for a bedsit and food, but there was plenty money left to start and finish my collection of Beatles’ LPs and start off my Jethro Tull haul. (I was buying two or three LPs a week in those days from the small independent record shop.) When I moved there 28 years and five days ago, you could buy just about anything from one of dozens of small retailers, from electrical goods to secondhand books. The record shop and book shop had both closed before I left the area in 1992.
As I wrote elsewhere recently, I left that job to become an insurance salesman (another job which only lasted for a few months). I was the worst insurance salesman ever – total number of policies sold was minus one. I say that because I went to see a customer about taking out another policy and he cancelled his existing one instead.
But the office, in London’s Oxford Street, was staffed by an incredibly mixed bunch. My best friend was probably an Algerian Muslim and there were two other Scots, a Welshman, at least one Ulsterman, a French woman, an American woman, an Arab fella, a Nigerian bloke (planning a clever major scam then legging it back to Lagos), two Indian girls and even (believe it or not) a couple of Londoners. My boss was half Irish and half Indian and referred to herself as an “Irish Paki”. (Her words, not mine.)
We all got on well with each other and had lunch together in various groups (my posse was usually at the shop in Argyll Street? that sold pizza and salad for a pound (I think we were all skint) and a few drinks after work in some lovely smoky atmospheric pub down one of the side streets.
I don’t know if anyone was homosexual, bisexual or was attracted to parking meters. It wasn’t discussed.
Then a few years later along came “New” Labour and imposed reams of legislation to force us to get along with each other. As we can see with hindsight, it all worked very badly, but fully as intended, for divide and conquer purposes.
It was in those days I received my only County Court Judgements – for not paying my Poll Tax. I had started drinking heavily, so sorry, when the choice was between the desperate need for a drink and paying tax, the drink won hands down.
Now that I live in a big house for business purposes with a correspondingly high council tax band and an annual bill that could easily be confused with the defence budget of a medium-sized African country, I could do with the old poll tax back again! That’s me being selfish now.
Not that I’m wealthy. After paying the rent, rates and bills on this place, I’m merely a pauper with lots of rooms. I changed my gas and electricity supplier to E-on a year and a bit ago, because one of those comparison sites showed they were the best value for my usage. Up until ten months ago, I was paying £109.00 per month. The three increases since have seen the cost rise to £374.00 a month. That’s every month, not just the ones with the white global warming covering the daffodils. Prices have risen, but what has happened is that the “Plan” I had been on before ended and I’m on a plan with no contract, so they think they can charge what they like now.
Beware meercats bearing gifts! Actually, I don’t think it was them. I didn’t get my free meercat toy in the post anyway.
What do all these “regulators” do all day, apart from twiddling their thumbs in between collecting pay cheques? They don’t even manage to cope with dealing with the constant stream of unsolicited calls from companies trying to sell me solar panels. The Telephone Preference Service (TPS) appears to be another pig-in-a-poke, giving the “stakeholder” pretend control over his life.
Which brings me to another controversial Thatcherite policy: selling off the family silver. I was outraged at the time and never bought any shares in any of these sell-offs. I considered that I already owned the utilities, along with my sixty million fellow citizens, so why would I buy what I already owned? Of course, the shares were sold at a price which was almost guaranteed to produce an instant profit, so the people could be bought with that idea.
Maybe the cost of the bills these days wouldn’t be so high if people hadn’t bought into this illogical campaign of selling just about every state asset.
I had to laugh back then at how gullible people can be. Before the telephone service was privatised, you could call directory enquiries on one easy to remember number, which was effective and free, but that all changed to give the consumer “choice”. So there became dozens of numbers operated by private companies which cost a fair bit to call. But we now had “choice” and that was marvellous, wasn’t it? So much better than something that worked and was without charge. At least we no longer had to rent a bog standard telephone from the GPO, I suppose.
Another supposedly marvellous thing Maggie did was to increase home ownership by selling off council houses, again, often at very low prices. I am all for everyone owning their own home as far as is possible, but selling off the council houses and not replacing them for council tenants is irresponsible at best. What we have is private landlords owning, sometimes hundreds of ex-council flats and houses, renting them out privately, and the council paying the housing benefit on them.
So, now we have a shortage of council houses. A Tory MP on Facebook attempted to blame Labour for this, but I tried to get a council flat or house in the London Borough of Bexley in 1993-94. I was told I’d need to wait for at least five years unless I was pregnant. I had a bit of a beer belly, but I wouldn’t have got away with it. So, I had to rent privately in Catford and get the council (Lewisham, by this time) to pay for it.
She started the transformation of this country into a politically correct police state. Her Government behaved with an almost gloating disregard for constitutional norms. She brought in money laundering laws that have now been extended to a general supervision over our financial dealings. She relaxed the conditions for searches and seizure by the police. She increased the numbers and powers of the police. She weakened trial by jury. She weakened the due process protections of the accused. She gave executive agencies the power to fine and punish without due process. She began the first steps towards total criminalisation of gun possession.
She did not cut government spending. Instead, she allowed the conversion of local government and the lower administration into a system of sinecures for the Enemy Class. She allowed political correctness to take hold in local government. When she did oppose this, it involved giving central government powers of supervision and control useful to a future politically correct government. She extended and tightened the laws constraining free speech about race and immigration.
To her credit, she did give us Section 28, which prevented local councils (including schools) promoting homosexuality. This was arguably her most popular policy in Scotland, where seven out of eight people wanted to keep it. And of course, Scotland is hardly the most Tory of places. Nowadays, even the Tories are falling over themselves to distance themselves from this “homophobia”.
This aspect from Gabb is interesting,
Her encouragement of enterprise never amounted to more than a liking for big business corporatism. Genuine enterprise was progressively heaped with taxes and regulations that made it hard to do business. Big business, on the other hand, was showered with praise and legal indulgences. Indeed, her privatisation policies were less about introducing competition and choice into public services than in turning public monopolies into corporate monsters pampered by the State with subsidies and favourable regulations – corporate monsters that were expected in return to lavish financial rewards on the political class.
This has been happening the world over. The giant transnationals have been taking over. In the USA, it has come to such a ridiculous stage that children now need a business licence costing $50 a day, in this case, to sell lemonade. Now these ones are doing “extra chores” to make money, but how long before health and safety regulations prevent them, insisting on insurance in case they break a vase while dusting?
Talking to the man who does a few things round the garden here, he says that people these days can’t just go round offering gardening services without having insurance. You could probably find a million instances where people cannot work due to some recent change in the law. In 1991, after my brief and disastrous attempt at selling insurance, I tried window cleaning for a few weeks. Had I needed insurance, it would never have happened. Although, had I broken a few windows or fallen through an extension roof, I would have wished I hadn’t bothered.
Sean Gabb continues,
She virtually began the war on freedom of choice where smoking is concerned. She started the modern obsession with health and safety as an excuse for controlling our lives. She vastly expended state powers of supervision and control over parenting, and immensely expanded the numbers and powers of social workers.
He goes on to criticise her because she “made the environmental nonsense politically fashionable”, ” hardly cut taxes”, “ruthlessly pushed the speed of European integration” and “her militaristic foreign policy and slavish obedience to Washington mostly worked against the interests of this country. The one war she fought that might have some justification was only necessary because her own colleagues had effectively told the Argentine Government to invade the Falkland Islands.”
Even her reforms of the trade union movement had malevolent effects. Before her, trade unions were run by ordinary working class people who used the strike and violence to achieve their ends. She ensured that the unions were taken over by the usual Enemy Class graduates. These were the only people capable of using the health and safety and workplace discrimination laws and so forth that were brought in to replace the older methods of advancing working class interests. The result has been the co-option of the trade unions to purposes that have done nothing at all to advance working class interests.
Forget Margaret Thatcher as some hero of our Movement. She was at best the midwife of the New Labour Revolution. She did not just make the world safe for New Labour – she created New Labour. Without her precedents and her general transformation of our laws and institutions, Tony Blair would have been impossible.
I am inclined to wish James Callaghan had won in 1979. If things had turned nasty thereafter, it would at least have been an honest despotism. No libertarians or genuine conservatives would have been making idiots of themselves a third of a century later trying to tell themselves and everyone else that it was other than it was.
But I remember her most for the way she dealt with the miners. She didn’t like the power of the unions. Fair enough, but to engage in the wholesale slaughter of the industries which sustained many communities all over the country was, in my opinion, evil. So when John Healey, Labour MP for Rotherham refused to attend the memorial recall of Parliament last week, I don’t blame him.
I have a large framed poster on the wall of my constituency office in Wath upon Dearne.
It displays the names and badges of each British coalmine closed by the Tories after the miners’ strike up until 1994 when the last pit in our constituency closed at Silverwood. A total of 203; 64 in Yorkshire alone.
But as I reminded him on Facebook, Labour’s Climate Change Act 2008 will likely cost even more jobs.
I will be fifty in the summer and you probably need to reach a certain age before you realise that the secret of “good” government is to keep the masses with just enough money after tax to pay for their little houses and cars and an annual holiday and to put some food on the table and pay the crippling utility bills. Then they’re happy to continue to play the Labour – Tory – Labour – Tory game every few years because they believe that’s the only political game in town, even though nothing really changes for the better.
Perhaps if the masses ever manage to leave Plato’s cave and face reality, things will change.
The aim is to tackle overcrowding and encourage a more efficient use of social housing.
Says the government, as they keep allowing in millions of migrants and giving them council houses. As many as 660,000 people will be affected and the saving will be a paltry £465m a year – or about nine days’ EU contributions.
There are many other savings being made in the next few days at the expense of the poor, but this latest “initiative” – taxing pocket money – takes the Farley’s rusk.
Of course, the Tories have been quick to defend their callous actions, although many have refused to answer the telephone from journalists out of shame, at least proving that they are not completely devoid of the emotion. Chancellor Osborne earlier explained that every boy and girl who receives earnings above the staggered children’s personal allowance is obliged to pay tax on it. The allowances for children have been set as follows:
Age up to 4 – 50p per week
5-7 – 75p per week
8-10 – £1.00 per week
11-13 – £1.25 per week
14 and over £1.75 per week.
Income tax will be 20% on earnings above these allowances, with a high rate of 45% tax where pocket money exceeds £5.00 per week.
A rather tipsy David Cameron said at some meeting or other that, “In times of extreme national hardship, it is only fair that all our people contribute to digging us out of the hole we have dug for them. I mean, that the last Labour government dug.”
He went on, “Children already pay VAT on their toys and sweets, so this is simply a natural progression. You wanted progressive politics, right?”
He added, “And who do you think pays for all those vaccinations they get? The tooth fairy? Fair’s fair: it’s time for the children to pay.”
Labour’s condemnation has been swift. Ed Balls, who wants five year olds given sex education, insisted he wasn’t a pervert, but said that taxing children was morally wrong.
The other Ed: Miliband, reacted furiously, “I can’t tell you how furious I am”, he said, furiously.
Of course, this all stems from EU directive 2385/2013, which demands that all national governments implement the tax from today. The Germans now have a dedicated minister for children’s taxation, Herr Aprilscherz, who says that children must bear some of the responsibility for their future stupid actions.
The UK Government stopped short of imposing a bedroom tax on dolls’ houses where the number of bedrooms exceeds the family of dolls who live in the house, although they are considering legislation to ensure that doll collections reflect the social mix of the new Britain, in terms of ethnicity, religion, gender and sexual orientation.
"Hope not Hate" have their sights set on UKIP, despite most people wanting less immigration.
My attention was drawn to this piece on Hope Not Hate’s website: Hope not hate takes a position on UKIP. Because these people are “celebrating Britain’s diverse society” anyone who wants to preserve our own culture is quarry to be eyed with suspicion and therefore “monitored “.
There seems to be a great desire for two-thirds of these multi-cultists to go UKIP-hunting, “The response has been incredible. Over 1200 people replied to our email within the first 48 hours and hundreds more gave us their views via Facebook, twitter and email. These numbers show the interest in this subject and justifies us asking the question in the first place.”
And where there is talk of the possibility of UKIP being “racist” there is mention of the BNP, that is clearly run on racial lines, as they have a list of acceptable northern European people groups eligible to become members. As far as I know, UKIP is the only party which bars former BNP and National Front members from joining. But in the mind of the brainwashed cultist, if you want to preserve your own society, as people have tried to do for centuries and much blood has been spilled in the process, then you are, all-of-a-sudden, someone who needs monitoring and opposing when necessary.
These people believe in such nonsense as “strength through diversity” and that it will lead to some wonderful, enlightened society. They are too far gone to realise that they believe in an oxymoron – a guaranteed impossibility. Strength only comes from rigid bonds through shared values and via traditional families – the opposite of multiculturalism and “diversity” generally, which is all being carried out to subvert our culture to bring it down.
As there was an email address at the foot of the article, I replied to “Nick” with this….
I have just read your post about UKIP – about how two-thirds of your members want to campaign against possibly the last political hope this country has.
I suppose they see “racism” everywhere, because the system has trained them to see it everywhere, to aid with the government’s divide and rule policies.
I’m not a UKIP member, but I sure vote for them and not for the mainstream parties led by traitors. And your organisation, I am quite sure, has been fabricated, to aid in the silencing of legitimate debate.
I am certainly not a “racist”. In fact, as a God-fearing Creationist, I believe we are all of one blood, as scripture says, and all related through Adam and later, Noah. On the 2011 census question about ethnicity, I wrote “human race” because it is the only race.
To be patriotic and want controlled immigration and to preserve your country’s sovereignty is normal. It’s what non-brainwashed people the World over have always done. People only see “racism” where absolutely none exists (I cannot speak for every UKIP member or voter, of course) because they have been taught that their own culture is inferior and that to try to protect your own culture is wrong, when it is what our forebears fought to preserve for many centuries.
To check that I am right, just consider how many other people throughout the world who try to protect their cultures are deemed to be “racist”. It is just the Europeans who get that label, for reasons that I will not go into right now.
I recently read evidence that the EDL may actually be a fake government front and I am sure that your organisation is. Our rulers – the ones who really pull the strings in the banks and corporations – love to control the government and control the opposition and the media. And I am not daft enough to be absolutely sure that UKIP isn’t part of the controlled opposition too. The sooner we give them power to help us, the sooner we will know.
You could ask your members if Winston McKenzie, a black man, who stood for UKIP in the recent Croydon by-election, is a “racist” or just a patriot who happens to have more melanin than the average Brit. The biggest and most pathetic “racists” are people who fall for this propaganda and start hating their own country and its culture and their fellow citizens. That’s what at least two-thirds of your people are like, based on this evidence. I call that hate, not hope.
I hope you can educate your people that being patriotic is not “racist”, else there are an awful lot of racist immigrants. I fear that concept would confuse them immensely!
I also hope that you see through Hope Not Hate, because you come across as fascist and normal people just won’t put up with that, especially when the thinking processes which influence the opinion of the majority of your members is clearly highly flawed.
Mr Ratzinger is to step down as Pope at the tender age of 85. It is only the fourth time a pope has retired. The Vatican’s pension plan must be very poor.
But who will replace him in the next few weeks? Needless to say, the bookies have odds worked out already. The front runners are all cardinals with the odd archbishop thrown in. But guess who Ladbrokes have at a whopping great five hundred to one? The man of faith and peace himself: Tony Blair is 500-1 to become the next pope. I can’t see that price lasting for long. It has to tumble faster than a clumsy person trying to climb up a steep cliff wearing flip flops and carrying a canoe under one arm.
Blair sounds a better bet than Richard Dawkins, who is 666/1 at Paddy Power. They may think that’s a joke, but if the Vatican are looking for a moderniser, he’s their man.
There is a comparison website for all the main bookmakers and I see that you can actually get a stonking 5,000 to 1 for Blair at a bookies called Stan James. That’s the kind of name that sounds like it should be prefixed with the word “Honest”.
You can get a thousand to one on Bob Gelfof and Bono at Corel. Jose Mourinho is also 1,000 – 1, and Madonna and Oprah Winfrey are 2,000 – 1.
Then it just gets silly! The two surviving priests from Craggy Island, Dougal Maguire and Jack Hackett, are 10,000 to 1 with Stan James – but Dougal is only 1,000 – 1 with Paddy Power, which suggests there may be money being wagered on him. Mrs Doyle’s probably been gambling away this week’s housekeeping money.
As for me, I haven’t gambled in about fifteen years and I don’t intend restarting now, even though a £200 bet on Blair with Honest Stan James could make me a millionaire. With Blair’s proven record as a gold star useful idiot and the Beast system being set up good and proper, it’s not beyond the realms of possibility that this Hellish man could find himself with the job. A crook with a crook.
All this pope stuff has a very serious side to it, but at the moment I feel a bit like Jack Hackett after he’s drunk half a bottle of Toilet Duck, so I’ll leave the theological talk until later. I’ll probably wait until after Pope Antonio Bliar is elected.
This con has already fooled many people around the world and continues to, despite being popular for a few years now. It gives the con artists remote access to your computer so they can steal your credit card details or any other information.
I must admit I had not heard about this one until lunchtime today, when a man telephoned (Indian accent) and said that my computer has a malicious infection. Not just a virus; worse than that, which my anti-virus software cannot remove, but he would show me how to get rid of the problem manually. After reading a bit more about this scam afterwards, I believe there are variations on the spiel.
He said they were receiving error reports coming from the PC with my Windows licence ID. I went along for the ride even though I suspected it was a scam but wanted to know where it was leading – without putting my computer at risk in the process (hopefully).
He asked me to hold down the Windows key plus R, which brings up the “Run” box and I was to type in “eventvwr” which brings up the event viewer. No damage could occur so far (correct me if I’m wrong!). He showed me a scary list of dangers, which did concern me, but apparently, it’s just a log and not necessarily a problem.
I was then directed to the TeamViewer website, which I understand is a legitimate product for communicating and sharing online.
When he asked me to click on “join remote control session” and I had to download a file to do so, that’s where the fun had to end. As his thick accent was difficult to understand, I had the time to search for answers while he was speaking.
I asked how much this was going to cost, and was assured it was completely free, but after reading further about the scam, it seems some of them trawl your computer for your credit card details and others present you with a large bill for “fixing” your PC when there was nothing wrong with it.
It’s a problem Microsoft don’t seem to be able to effectively deal with, as the scammers operate out of India and are careful not to claim to be from Microsoft, but just mention the name in such a way that you think that’s where they are calling from. I tried to clarify with the man who, exactly, he was calling on behalf of and he said some name totally unrelated to Microsoft (by this time I could barely be bothered trying to understand what he was saying anyway).
Someone on this forum reckons that Microsoft wouldn’t give you anything for free, so that sounds like one good way to spot a scammer!
Next time, I think I’ll have some real fun, if I have the time. There’s a nice moral message in this video too for “Sandra”.
But he starts off by telling her that, yes, he’s “on” his computer, i.e. sitting on it!
So, we’re to get a referendum on our EU membership/enslavement in the next four or five years, are we? That is, if people are nuts enough to vote for the David Cameron Party again next time, because Ed Miliband doesn’t want us to have one and I can’t see UKIP winning the election, although you never know. If we start becoming swamped with Romanians and Bulgarians (e-petition) this time next year, the penny might finallly drop in the, so-far, hard to convince. Because it is the David Cameron Party now, not the Conservatives. It stopped being that some years ago.
I’ve been challenged to justify my statement that the Tory Party tells lies (my other statements, such as that the Tory Party is useless for the purpose for which it allegedly exists or that it engages in smears, are plainly true and don’t have the same specific character). The most glaring instance of direct untruth is the behaviour of David Cameron over the Lisbon Treaty.
He goes on to say that Cameron probably knew that, under the circumstances, his “cast-iron guarantee” was worthless – not worth the paper it wasn’t written on. You can be fairly sure it’s the same with this latest delaying tactic of a referendum by the end of 2017. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
Cameron was also given the job of completing the sexual revolution, hence the mad rush to get “gay marriage” onto the statute books.
Paxman: “You’re in favour of faith schools being able to teach sex education as they like”. Cameron:”Not as they like. That’s not right. What we voted for was what the government suggested in the end, which is proper sex education…”
Paxman: “Should they be free to teach that homosexuality is wrong, abortion is wrong, contraception is wrong?”
“No, and the government discussed this and came up with a good idea , which is to say that we wanted a clearer path of sexual education across all schools, but faith schools were not given any exemption but they were able to reflect some of their own faith in the way that this was taught.
But no, you must teach proper lessons in terms of gay equality and also combat homophobic bullying in schools, I think that’s extremely important.”
The man is an ideological subversion agent…clearly, I think, part of a socialist conspiracy to destroy our culture and hand us over to the EU/UN. If it walks like a duck, etc.
The Prime Minister’s mother was asked why her son is alienating voters by pushing gay marriage and replied: “I know, but David just won’t be told”.
That is because he’s a bought and paid for (or being blackmailed) traitor, using social engineering as a tried and tested way of weakening our country. He is ten times more dangerous than William Joyce and he paid for his crime by being hanged.
And how many excuses do you think he’ll come up with by 2017 to dismiss his latest referendum “promise”? Not that he is likely to get the chance to offer us even a deliberately confusing, badly-worded vote preceded by months of mainstream media scaremongering. And he’ll have learned a valuable lesson from the Irish that if the people give the “wrong” answer, they have to have another referendum – no doubt, after the following election!
It doesn’t have to be like this. We can be free from the EU by voting UKIP. I can’t see how we have a choice now. “Vote UKIP and get Labour” doesn’t wash. Vote Tory and get Labour. Vote Lib Dem and get Labour. They have the same puppet masters. And we don’t have to accept this social engineering either. With enough pressure, the “gay marriage” bill can be torn up. It’s OUR country. I think people forget that, after years of name-calling (“bigot”, “racist”, “homophobe”, etc.) and, on occasion, downright persecution. People have been demoralised. That’s part of the subversion process, as explained by KGB defector, Yuri Bezmenov.
It seems fitting to re-post this video I made a couple of years ago. Forgive the couple of errors in the script! I’m sure there will be 28 countries very soon. Be empowered and fight this clunking EU machine! If we don’t, we WILL regret it.
Occasionally, there is an article in the mainstream media which is as good as you will find on the best blogs: honest, well-written and fearless. James Delingpole wrote such a piece yesterday. I will reproduce it here, lest the Telegraph realise their mistake and pull it. Fasten your seat belts…
When George W Bush declared war on an abstract noun – “Terror” – he was widely and inevitably mocked by the left for his foolishness. Not to be outdone, Barack Obama has used his second inaugural address to declare war on an even more nebulous threat to the security of the world: reality, itself.
We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms.
The first sentence is a blatant untruth. Concerted global action so far to deal with the threat of climate change has resulted in: higher energy prices; more deaths from fuel poverty; more intrusive regulation; the destruction of rainforests and the squandering of agricultural land on biofuels; higher food prices; famine and food riots – as a result partly of the drive for biofuels; the entrenchment of corporatism and rent-seeking to the detriment of free markets; the ravaging of the countryside with ugly solar farms and even uglier wind turbines; the deaths of millions of birds and bats; the great recession. How any of this has in any way benefited either our children (who are going to find it far harder to find a job) or future generations is a complete mystery.
The second sentence is a devious combination of the junk factoid and the non sequitur.
That “overwhelming judgement of science” is a reference to the comprehensively discredited Doran survey: the one where the “97 per cent of climate scientists” turned out to consist of just 75 out of 77 climate scientists who could be bothered to reply to two silly and dubious questions.
As for the idea that “science” ever has such a thing as an “overwhelming judgement”: this would be news to Galileo, Newton, Einstein and indeed all the great scientists of history, all of whom made their names by advancing theories which completely overturned the “overwhelming judgement” of their contemporaries.
It’s probably true, up to a point, that “none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms”. But only if you accept that everyone lives in a region susceptible to fires, drought and powerful storms, which not everyone does.
What Obama is presumably trying to slip into that weasel sentence is the notion that “science” is overwhelmingly of the view that raging fires, crippling drought and more powerful storms are increasing as a result of “climate change” (note incidentally how he’s careful not to say whether or not it is man-made, thus enabling him to cover all eventualities). But if this is the case, I’d dearly love to see the evidence that this is a) anthropogenic b) controllable or c)historically unprecedented. Certainly, according to this graph at Watts Up With That?, there is nothing particular weird or alarming about recent weather activity. On an index of “Extreme Weather” in the US since 1910, last year – 2012 – ranks a very modest 54th.
Still, for all that, I applaud the President’s chutzpah and ingenuity. If you want to expand the size of government as much as he obviously does, there’s really no better way than to declare war on reality. Reality is a slippery foe; it has many heads – and no sooner have you cut off one than a thousand more grow in its place; it’s everywhere, at all times, and there’s no escaping it, meaning you have to mobilise unimaginably large resources if you are to have a hope of defeating it. Which, of course, you never will. Obama’s glorious war on reality will be a war without end. Bad luck, America. (But you can’t say I didn’t warn you.…)
Alex Salmond does it again. After “independence” (i.e. ruled directly from Brussels, cutting out the Westminster middlemen), it will be enshrined in the Scottish constitution (to last forever) that everyone in the rest of the EU can come here and get a free university education. So Stavros from Thessalonica or Olga from Riga or, when they are admitted, Mahmud from Istanbul, can waltz into Scotland at any time in the future, wave the constitution around and demand a place at university. Salmond also wants homelessness legislation in the constitution, so that means they will have a right to be housed too; and be entitled to free healthcare and their children given free schooling and free pensions and free bus passes for all the old folk who come over. It’s all free in Wee Eck’s Magic Kingdom, where money grows on trees and his 50p minimum unit of alcohol will no doubt finally end our centuries’ old alcohol problems, as the backstreet boozers get renovated into pavement cafes and stylish bistros and where teenagers change their old routines. No more evenings in the park with a poly bag of Buckfast bottles for them. From now on, it’s strictly picnics by the river with a wicker basket of healthy fare and a gingham tablecloth to lay it on and maybe a decent bottle of Merlot.
Kids these days...
At present, everyone from the EU can already get free education at a Scottish university, except for the English, Welsh and Northern Irish. Nice, eh? But after “independence within Europe” the SNP won’t be allowed to discriminate against their fellow Brits any longer.
The Mad Marxist is a total menace; a danger; a traitor. I think he’s in place to further subvert Scotland. One of his ambitions is to invite half the world to live in Scotland. This is probably what’s driving him on this latest crazy idea. Plus, with half or more of Scottish school leavers at Uni learning something useless (as per KGB subversion programming) it also leaves the door open to immigrants taking the jobs that the Scots (of all ages, probably) would have applied for had they not taken advantage of this “free” education. They may well find that they are rendered unable to pay the rent on their student flat because some Latvian or Bulgarian has been given the barman or shelf-stacking job they were going to do.
No offence to Latvians or Bulgarians. I’m sure they wouldn’t want their own version of Comrade Salmondski re-engineering their country either. They have had quite enough of that malarkey. With a vast tide of foreigners being added to our frail five million population, it won’t be Scotland anymore, but some globalist socialist politically-correct “Utopia” where nothing works and nobody has two pound coins (or Euros or Salmondos) to rub together.
But, I imagine that’s the aim.
Still, as long as the SNP go on about their “independence” most supporters won’t have a clue as to what that entails; that it is really indy-pretence. It seems to me that the people who want it most want it out of nothing more than vanity. I can’t see any logical reason for supporting Alex Salmond.
