Sleeping on (and off) the protests


Christopher Houseman

I was watching the BBC state o’clock news at midday, in which a correspondent was covering the protests by Spanish public sector workers over an across the board 5pc pay cut there. She noted that the protesters converged in the morning on the “Economics Ministry”, where they passed the time chanting slogans and banging saucepans – until it was time to go home for their siesta.

Now don’t get me wrong, anyone who’s been to Spain knows how thoroughly sensible it is to have a long lunch and an afternoon snooze there, particularly in the summer. But even so, there’s something quite satisfyingly ironic about public sector workers having to leave their own protest for a long lunch and forty winks to follow.

When Spain’s public sector turkeys can’t stay awake to protest against their approaching Christmas, I think Spain’s beleaguered private sector may be in for better times ahead… eventually.

Climate terrorism is the next thing


David Davis

I warned people, time and again, about things like ALF, IFAW and the RSPCA. These were the breeding-grounds for the next big fashionable murder-scheme: climate terrorists. Much the same people frequent both camps.

One never, also, really fully bought into the “Islamist” scare. Apart from 9/11 and a few other obvious big set-pieces, the foot-soldiers of that movement are not serious at all. Some of their priests, “scholars” and imams – yes: they’ll get a lot out of a Universial World Caliphate, including all the virgins while they yet live too (when virgins are of most use to a man.) But the footsloggers and suicide bombers: no, to the drivers of this, they are just expendable scum.

Islam will soon learn that it’s been set up as a patsy. It’s not a religion – and that’s a different discussion we will have with it when a more relaxed time comes, and it has grown up a bit. Having read the Koran and commentaries, I can see that it’s a fairly nifty way of husbanding chattels, animals and women, in pre-Enlightenment Lands of harsh climate where there is nothing. But as I said, we’ll have that discussion another time.

For the present though, the Bramwello-Ehrlichite GreeNazi movement is much more dangerous and immediately harmful: all of those in it all seem to believe with messianic fervour what they are saying. They really are prepared to murder, starve and freeze millions to death, down to the meanest polytechnic student among them: there must be some attraction towards violence associated with the promotion of opinions, among this class of person. In time,  I prophesy that they will learn from their mates in ALF how to go about “targetting” private named individuals too.

Liberal rhetoric does not, somehow, carry within it the same degree of utterly certain conviction of rectitude that the GreeNazis’ sort does. Even Islamists of the militant kind appear to be quaking nervous bags of jello by contrast.

These are the dangerous ones of the next generation, following in a grand and highly-studiable tradition of anti-liberal protest followed by “action”. Just watch.

Aynbody going to watch Question Time?


Michale Winning

The fascist left have guaranteed that Nick Griffin of the BNP will get prime time billing tonight or whenever it is. What they don’t get is that we all know they’re spitting tacks over the BNP exact;y ‘coz it’s stripping votes off what they think is their own little Pocket Borough. Ive just learned about these and that’s what Labour thinks its’ entitled to. So they are climibing the wall with anger and rage at the BNP, which is just a socialist party realy but a more nationalist one than they like.

You know, if libertarianism os to get off the ground ever, and les’t face it we are not exactly winning right today, all these bloody people may just have to go. I don’t care where or how, just go. Gone. Deprived of power, amployment (they don’t do anything worthwhile anyway) and the ability to influence events. It’s just too effing difficult to deal with them and their whingeing and obfuscation of everything that’s objectivly right. I’m not saying the BNP is right, far from it: why does everybody have to be seen to say loudly that they think the BNP’s wrong even though everybody knows you know it is?

But the sort of people writhing in public rage for TV consumption,  at the BNP’s man being on the telly, are the same sort of people that attack and try to shut down power stations. This doesn’t make the BNP right, and it just shows up where the enemies of liberty and free speech are coming from.

Sorry about that rant, I couldnt help ot.

China “mental patients” Public Security Bureau … Lily Kember can protest lots of stuff!


David Davis

One Lily Kember, (here’s more about her) a “third year” student of “Anthropology”, who helped to disrupt Stansted Airport yesterday, could have a shining career as a protester in China, about “treatment” of political dissidents.

I wonder if she’d like to go there , perhaps to stop some rather large open-cast coal mines being dug, say, in Manchuria? But she probably does not know where that is.

Tory Bear thinks she’s a bit of a prat. I’d send her to China, put a Duracell in her, wind her up, and see what she does there.

But she’s helped lots of people, like the poor woman who missed her father’s funeral and the Rosary for it.

Yep. Lily Kember is a remarkable woman, who really cares about the planet (not people though.)

No: “woman” is too dignifying a word for that congeries of atoms, not animated by any morality recognised by any but Al Gore. It probably watched “an inconvenient truth” and was smitten.
