Music for a blue Tuesday


And we haven’t done GWR castles yet, but here’s the Earl of Mount Edgecumbe:-

And here’s 5043, doing its stuff:-

Friday night is music night!

I don’t really relate to dear old Harry Haddock’s choice over at Nation of Shopkeepers, but you can go and listen to it if you like. It’s probably ‘coz it’s really really deep and meaningful and I just don’t understand it.

Thought I’d try this instead:-

Might put up a few more tracks later. Let’s make it a Tolkien night, I think. The Great Film of our time.

Graphs and things


David Davis

here’s a good one. Hat tip Burning our Money, via The Landed Underclass.

The trouble with socialism is that what it does is a parasitic/evil reflection, a sort of anti-chimera, of Christian charity. Just as Morgoth made orcs in corrupt imitation of elves.

Just as orcs cannot ever, ever emulate elves in any way, (see The Silmarillion,) big States and bureaucrats cannot ever, ever begin to “solve” “problems” of “unequal distribution of opportunity, wealth and access to public services”.

People go along with it, because (a) it looks sort of charitable and “big” (ie it might work, sort of, and they have not time to scratch their arses anyway, let alone give a few dollars to someone today) and (b) the statists have GUNS.

… but further to that one below, will the EU remain “the” problem, or even cease to be “a” problem?


Guido is saying “let’s sit tight and hope it won’t be worse than the buggers think”.

Right now as I type, the world of money, shares and commerce seems to be coming apart at the seams. Nobody seems to want to buy Banking shares for any money at all this morning – not surprising since people will only learn the full list of more horrors this afternoon. Then, the Prime-Mentalist is screeching at poor little Iceland “Och-aye, the Noo, Jummieh!!! Where’z ma f*****g money????” (Not helpful I should have thought.) And the Euro waits in the wings to see what its walk-on lines are going to be.

It’s all very well for those clever people who were optimists-in-full-possession-of-the-facts a few years ago to say “we’ve bought gold!” But most people don’t own more gold than is worn on one finger, and sometimes not all of that. There are other priorities for most families, like just keeping going.

The EU of course continues to steam on, rearranging its deck-chairs to suit the sunbathing bureaucrats…there is talk of measures to “regulate” blogging, for example (see post below) as if the Brussels machinery had too little to do in reality, which is probable. I think measures like this will get harmlessly swept away in whatever happens to the Euro in the next few weeks.

This is not to say that the (very, very much nastier) British pro-EU bureaucracy will not get-a-hold of draft directives, and merely implement them as is they were real ones, while nobody is looking. It’s called “gold-plating” in political circles, I am given to understand. I would not put it past them even to ram stuff through even after the EU was dead (a nice thought) so great is their visceral hatred for English culture, tradition and institutions (why did we think they wanted to do the jobs they do? Why would someone want to be a “diversity outreach officer”, or a “parking attendant”, or this, or this? (that one’s even an “Australian Government Initiative” – that makes it even worse, for the cancer has meta-statised elsewhere.)  Why did real Germans and Austrians – and others – hurl still-living humans into incinerators? I don’t see the moral difference really – we are merely arguing about degree.)

A tangible and to-be-wished-for benefit of this mess is that the EU will start to unravel also. The continental bureaucrats will probably live with that, continue to draw their salaries and lottery wins perks for as long as they can, and then retire to Tuscany or wherever, and pretend they are just jolly old folks who never really believed in the whole EU thing in the first place (they probably didn’t, either.)

But we should watch out for the astonishimg vindictiveness and ferocity, which I believe will emanate from the UK’s home-grown and now frustrated pro-EU establishment. This will come when it is found out that the whole shooting-match has gone belly-up overnight, and that these wicked, cruel and highly-motivated stalinists have lost their official authority to terrorise, erase, threaten, fine, regulate, confiscate and terminate.

Our problem will be what Frodo had, when he came home to the Shire, and found all sorts of riff-raff in charge.

Crime and punishment in the 21st century British Socialist paradise


David Davis

I am not a cruel man. No, not at all. I am merciful. I do not kill. I would not. I want to educate and to make-better. I only want to explain to our enemies the meaning of Hell. Before it is too late to not send them there, after their dangerous intellectual and real isolation from other humans is exposed for the hideousness that it is.

Truly, I say, that I would be willingly personally to take their surrender, now, and march them into the prepared-cages, and give them MRE’s. But I just have not the facilities here in Lancashire for all the millions of prisoners. So I can’t.

The freezing and dying leftie stalinists who are going to inhabit the Udenopticon, and while collapsing from gangrene and frostbite, will, later, just have to sit (or cower) shivering in the freezing howling rain and darkness of a Hebridean night. Or indeed for many mights. It is very sad.

While sitting, they can be explaining to the hoodies who have been suddenly put with them (there are not many, less than a few hundred thousand I think) the reason why they (the hoodies) were brought into being as “barnyard-animals” by the lefties, and how this was a tactic in the overall strategy of destroying Western Civilisation.

The reaction of the hoodies, to the real reason for their creation (like as of orcs, by Morgoth) will be interesting. I wait with interest to see how many “principal-lefties” will be unkilled and uneaten by morning.

Here are the comments on the BBC website, about Gordon Brown’s first year in office.


Most of them hope it’s his last, but that’s a vain hope. (Dark Ages etc.)

Here.

Strong language from the start….see my earlier post here.

A Libertarian Government of the UK will arrive to find many problems to fix. Of course, the first one will be to (a) take away or destroy all political machinery which could ever be used by ANY party (especially socialists) to regain control of people’s lives, and (b) deprive socialists of any Nazi persuasion, which is all of them, of the ability to proselytize or organize.

The following bit is censored: Ordinary people are all in favour of free speech, but not where it means the ability to deny the use of words, language and thought-forms to others (see “political correctness”.) Libertarians may here disagree with my “Boromir” moment, but there may be an instant where we have to “take the ring”.

Returing to reality: I would like a Libertarian Administration to not have to do those things which I described in the above (blue) paragraph. It is non-Libertarian, which is the point that Tolkien was making, by using Boromir for a very important purpose. But the central problem for Mankind to be able to proceed form here, rests on not being burdened, ever ever ever ever again, by collectivist Utopians and their pre-capitalist-barbarian nonsenses.

These buggers must accept, publicly, for many many years until all are gone, that they are useless wastes of space, with ideas which don’t accord with reality, and which nobody wants to follow. “The Science is Settled” – after all, they said it, not us. If they are very good and submissive and consent to either perform second-order-partial-differential-equations in front of students at circuses, or break rocks in the Pamirs on wireless tele vision, (they will be fed and clothed!) when paid so to do, then we will feed them and pay them.
