  • Prince Andrew Hears Of Another Summons To Attend Court In New York

    On hearing of another attempt by US lawyers to force him to testify under oath in the sex - slave scandal that arose him his links with Billionaire financier and ponce Jeffrey Epstein, Prince Andrew's response shows how seriously he is taking the threat of having to face his accuser in a court of law.

    The prince has strongly denied allegations that he slept with 17-year-old Virginia Roberts in a state which sets the age of consent at eighteen. Roberts alleges she was ‘procured’ for him by his close friend, convicted paedophile and procurer to the rich and famous (and Bill Clinton who was still President at the time,) Jeffrey Epstein. 

    The latest attempt by Miss Roberts' legal team to serve papers on Prince Andrew came a week after couriers FedEx returned a similar letter because it was 'refused' by the recipient at Buckingham Palace. 

    The letter to the Prince says: 'This is a formal request to interview you under oath at a time and place of your choosing.' 

    He is believed to have responded, "Fahk orf, Mummy's sorted it, she's promised that darkie chap an honorary kighthood."

    Last week while addressing a gathering of the rich and powerful at the World Economic Forum, Davos, Andy is alleged to have told his audience, "My good friend Slick Willie told me all I had to say was I did not have sex with that woman." The truth is I put it to her lower lips but I did not penetrate.

  • The Death Of Democracy - Lobbying For TTIP


    Activities of lobbyists should be open to scrutiny as they are often not working in the public interest.

    For some years now I and my libertarian friends in the blogosphere have been warning that democracy in the west is under threat, elected governments having been infiltrated by lobbyists working for a corporate elite. These lobbyists, who have no official status but plenty of money available for 'hospitality' (graft, payola, slush, bribery, incentivizing, call it what you will.) to help them enlist the support of corrupt officials – mainly politicians and civil servants mot more and more often these days, prominent scientists, 'special advisers' and former politicians who are happy to sell their reputation.

  • Alexis Tsipras Writes For Boggart Blog

    Quite a scoop for us today, we have new Greek Prime Minister and Nemesis of the lobby that want to see all EU member states integrated into a single superstate named Germany, Alexis Tsipras as our guest blogger.

    (Actually the item is nicked from the Sriza web site but they asked visitors to share it) Alexis has taken to the web to bypass dilomatic channels and explain the realities of life directly to German taxpayers.

    Authored by Alexis Tsipras via Syriza.net,

    Most of you, dear [German] readers, will have formed a preconception of what this article is about before you actually read it. I am imploring you not to succumb to such preconceptions. Prejudice was never a good guide, especially during periods when an economic crisis reinforces stereotypes and breeds biggotry, nationalism, even violence.

    In 2010, the Greek state ceased to be able to service its debt. Unfortunately, European officials decided to pretend that this problem could be overcome by means of the largest loan in history on condition of fiscal austerity that would, with mathematical precision, shrink the national income from which both new and old loans must be paid. An insolvency problem was thus dealt with as if it were a case of illiquidity.

    In other words, Europe adopted the tactics of the least reputable bankers who refuse to acknowledge bad loans, preferring to grant new ones to the insolvent entity so as to pretend that the original loan is performing while extending the bankruptcy into the future. Nothing more than common sense was required to see that the application of the 'extend and pretend' tactic would lead my country to a tragic state. That instead of Greece's stabilization, Europe was creating the circumstances for a self-reinforcing crisis that undermines the foundations of Europe itself.

    My party, and I personally, disagreed fiercely with the May 2010 loan agreement not because you, the citizens of Germany, did not give us enough money but because you gave us much, much more than you should have and our government accepted far, far more than it had a right to. Money that would, in any case, neither help the people of Greece (as it was being thrown into the black hole of an unsustainable debt) nor prevent the ballooning of Greek government debt, at great expense to the Greek and German taxpayer.

    Indeed, even before a full year had gone by, from 2011 onwards, our predictions were confirmed. The combination of gigantic new loans and stringent government spending cuts that depressed incomes not only failed to rein the debt in but, also, punished the weakest of citizens turning people who had hitherto been living a measured, modest life into paupers and beggars, denying them above all else their dignity. The collapse of incomes pushed thousands of firms into bankruptcy boosting the oligopolistic power of surviving large firms. Thus, prices have been falling but more slowly than wages and salaries, pushing down overall demand for goods and services and crushing nominal incomes while debts continue their inexorable rise. In this setting, the deficit of hope accelerated uncontrollably and, before we knew it, the 'serpent's egg' hatched – the result being neo-Nazis patrolling our neighbourhoods, spreading their message of hatred.

    Despite the evident failure of the 'extend and pretend' logic, it is still being implemented to this day. The second Greek 'bailout', enacted in the Spring of 2012, added another huge loan on the weakened shoulders of the Greek taxpayers, "haircut" our social security funds, and financed a ruthless new cleptocracy.

    Respected commentators have been referring of recent to Greece's stabilization, even of signs of growth. Alas, 'Greek-covery' is but a mirage which we must put to rest as soon as possible. The recent modest rise of real GDP, to the tune of 0.7%, signals not the end of recession (as has been proclaimed) but, rather, its continuation. Think about it: The same official sources report, for the same quarter, an inflation rate of -1.80%, i.e. deflation. Which means that the 0.7% rise in real GDP was due to a negative growth rate of nominal GDP! In other words, all that happened is that prices declined faster than nominal national income. Not exactly a cause for proclaiming the end of six years of recession!

    Allow me to submit to you that this sorry attempt to recruit a new version of 'Greek statistics', in order to declare the ongoing Greek crisis over, is an insult to all Europeans who, at long last, deserve the truth about Greece and about Europe. So, let me be frank: Greece's debt is currently unsustainable and will never be serviced, especially while Greece is being subjected to continuous fiscal waterboarding. The insistence in these dead-end policies, and in the denial of simple arithmetic, costs the German taxpayer dearly while, at once, condemning to a proud European nation to permanent indignity. What is even worse: In this manner, before long the Germans turn against the Greeks, the Greeks against the Germans and, unsurprisingly, the European Ideal suffers catastrophic losses.

    Germany, and in particular the hard-working German workers, have nothing to fear from a SYRIZA victory. The opposite holds. Our task is not to confront our partners. It is not to secure larger loans or, equivalently, the right to higher deficits. Our target is, rather, the country's stabilization, balanced budgets and, of course, the end of the grand squeeze of the weaker Greek taxpayers in the context of a loan agreement that is simply unenforceable. We are committed to end 'extend and pretend' logic not against German citizens but with a view to the mutual advantages for all Europeans.

    Dear readers, I understand that, behind your 'demand' that our government fulfills all of its 'contractual obligations' hides the fear that, if you let us Greeks some breathing space, we shall return to our bad, old ways. I acknowledge this anxiety. However, let me say that it was not SYRIZA that incubated the cleptocracy which today pretends to strive for 'reforms', as long as these 'reforms' do not affect their ill-gotten privileges. We are ready and willing to introduce major reforms for which we are now seeking a mandate to implement from the Greek electorate, naturally in collaboration with our European partners.

    Our task is to bring about a European New Deal within which our people can breathe, create and live in dignity.

    A great opportunity for Europe is about to be born in Greece. An opportunity Europe can ill afford to miss.

  • The European Union May Be on the Verge of Regime Collapse

    posted by Ed Butt

    Europe disappearing up it own hole (image source)

    Europe won the Cold War and looked set to become the global superpower. So where did it all go wrong?

    Not long after the Berlin Wall fell a quarter of a century ago, the Soviet Union collapsed, the United States squandered its peace dividend in an attempt to maintain global dominance, and Europe quietly became more prosperous, more integrated, and more of a player in international affairs. Between 1989 and 2014, the European Union (EU) practically doubled its membership and catapulted into third place in population behind China and India. It currently boasts the world's largest economy and also heads the list of global trading powers. In 2012, the EU won the Nobel Peace Prize for transforming Europe "from a continent of war to a continent of peace.”

    In the competition for "world's true superpower,” China loses points for still having so many impoverished peasants in its rural hinterlands and a corrupt, illiberal bureaucracy in its cities; the United States, for its crumbling infrastructure and a hypertrophied military-industrial complex that threatens to bankrupt the economy. As the only equitably prosperous, politically sound, and rule-of-law-respecting superpower, Europe comes out on top, even if -- or perhaps because -- it doesn't have the military muscle to play global policeman.

    And yet, for all this success, the European project is currently teetering on the edge of failure. Growth is anemic at best and socio-economic inequality is on the rise. The countries of Eastern and Central Europe, even relatively successful Poland, have failed to bridge the income gap with the richer half of the continent. And the highly indebted periphery is in revolt.

  • Cumberbatch To Star In Dickens Adaptation

    Cumberbatch in rehearsal for his next major role (Source)

    Actor Benedict Cumberbatch has issued a creepy, grovelling apology after describing black people as ‘colored' on US television, saying he is ‘an idiot' and is ‘devastated to have caused offense'.

    The 38-year-old Sherlock star was widely condemned after using the racial term during a debate on the lack of diversity on British screens on the PBS talk show Tavis Smiley last Wednesday.

    But on Monday night, he issued an apology for his ‘incorrect' and ‘offensive' use of the phrase, saying: ‘I'm devastated to have caused offense by using this outmoded terminology.

    ‘I offer my sincere apologies. I make no excuse for my being an idiot and know the damage is done.

    What a spineless creep.If he's had any balls he would have told his critics to fuck off. What we have to remember is there's not a single word in the English dictionary that African Americans cannot find racially offensive when it is spoken by a person of European descent.

    But let's get something straight. Ever since men first stood erect in Africa or central Asia or Indonesia, no human being has ever been black. And in that period no human being have ever been white either.

    Now if African Americans would kindly make up their minds how they want us to refer to them and agree to stick with it for a respectable period of time, we can get on with important things, like organising a new version of Charles Dickens' David Copperfield and casting that arse licking creep Cumberbatch as Uriah Heep.

  • Upright Micturation: A Great Victory For Male Human Rights

    The right to pee standing up will not easily be surrendered by European men. (Source)

    Feminists may screech about equality in the workplace, the GayBLT community get they knickers in a twist about same sex marriage, Muslims claim the right to sell their daughters to the highest bidder, Labour supporters demand the right to be offended on behalf of people who are not themselves offended, Americans are very jealous of their right to have more rights than anyone else, but there is one right the men of northern Europe hold dear. And it has been under threat.

    There are those on the left who would deny us the right to piss standing up. The politically correct busybodies have even gone to court in a big to deprive us of this right.

    Fortunately common sense prevailed when a court in Dusseldorf, Germany ruled that it is permissible for men to urinate while standing.

    The ruling came after a landlord in the sixth most populous city in Germany sought nearly $2,855 in damages to repair a bathroom floor. The landlord claimed the floor had "lost its sheen” by being regularly sprinkled with urine by a male tenant.

    "Despite growing castration domestication of men in this matter, urinating while standing up is still common practice,” said Judge Stefan Hank, who added that damage to marble floors from urine is virtually unknown.

  • Everything You Need To Know About The Greek Crisis.

    Those people who think I have suddenly become a right wing extremist because I have been supporting UKIP's anti - EU, anti - Global Government stance and their resistance to the political mainstreams war on European cultures by be surprised to know that I was hoping for the Greek General Election to deliver a convincing victory for 'extreme' according to the Euronazis in Brussels and their friends in mainstream media) left-wing party Syriza.

    The point is Syriza, while not actually anti - EU (and their are few anywhere who are totally against the European nations sticking together to form a powerful trading bloc against global hegemony by the USA, or the rapidly emerging counter USA bloc led by Russia, China and Iran. What Syriza are against is not simply Brussels imposed austerity as you will read and hear, but the surrender of the elected Greek Parliament's sovereign powers to unelected EU bureaucrats.

    But what gave impetus to the rise of Syriza from a fringe Marxist group to a party of government. And what pressures led them to form a coalition with a right wing party rather than any of the pro - Brussels groups of the soft left?

    Anybody who does the Greek debt arithmetic (and it sometimes seems that nobody in Brussels, Berlin or the British media actually does - or can,) knows that Greece cannot repay its external debts, now around 170% of GDP, without a level of pain that is simply beyond the tolerance of democratic societies'. Furthermore, because of rules imposed by Brussels on members of the Euro single currency system in relation to welfare, immigration and financial policy, even with interest rates at or close to zero per cent, Greece could not repay existing debt as fast as it needs to borrow new money to stay afloat.

    So the voters in Greece have elected to end their humiliation by the 'Troika' (EU/IMF/Capitalist Bankers) punitive austerity programme, by voting for a party that promises to unilaterally write off a large part of the debt.

    It is widely believed (thanks to misinformation from Brussels and misreporting in mainstream media) that Greece's bailout by the Troika, to the tune of 226 billion euros, was mainly aimed at keeping the bankrupt Greek state afloat, maintaining its basic operations and paying the salaries of its overpaid, skiving public workers.

    WRONG!

    The bulk of the bailout money actually went to the country's banks and foreign creditors, mostly French and German banks. In other words, more than 80 per cent of the bailout funds were used to indemnify, either directly or indirectly, the financial sector (both Greek and foreign) against losses incurred due to their irresponsible lending to bad risk clients. Neither the Greek state nor it's people saw any tangible benefit.

    What happened in Greece is also what was done in South America Eastern Europe. Disaster capitalism. Setting in train a deliberate policy aimed at bringing entire countries to their knees by first encouraging debt by making cheap money available, then imposing predatory conditions, and then using the ensuing chaos and smouldering ruins to take full control over their political, economic and social systems.

    The oligarchs supported by the bureaucrats of the Troika were not expecting the likes of left-wing Syriza Party, libertarian UKIP, or right wing groups like France's FN or the Sweden Democrats to offer voters a way to defy the globalist oligarchical power grab. It will be interesting to see what attempts the EU will make to overturn this vote or what punitive measures will by inflicted upon Greece as a Nazi / Soviet style warning that the new mood of defiance should not spread to Rome, Paris, Madrid, Lisbon and others.

  • Culcha Time

    I know that among the denizens of blog.co.uk there must be some cultured people who worry as much as I do about the decay of western civilisation due to the USA having become the cultural leader of the west.

    We are right to worry too. Mainstream media report little of what is going on and what they report is mostly spin and propaganda.

  • King Abdullah Tributes

    Cast you mind back over the past few years to the topics that have had the human rights screechers screeching with the volume turned up to eleven.

    Racism, sexism, homophobia, torture, suppression of free speech.

    Like a flock of sheeple being herded by a good sheepdog the mob followed the nudging of Obama, Cameron, the EU leaders and the media luvvies ranging from Polly Toynbee and the boy guru Owen Jones to Bono and Lady Gaga in condemning the leaders of Russia, Iran, Syria, Pakistan, Japan, Indonesia and anywhere judged to be not hypocritical enough in defending western governments' human rights abuses while condemning those of the west's enemies.

    The required level of hyprocrisy for world leaders wanting to be accepted into the New World Order has been demonstrated by the death of King Abdulla of Saudi Arabia, a despot under whose rule the Saudis maintained their position as the world's leader in oil production, beheadings, flogging, torture, oppressing women and homosexuals, suppressing free speech and political dissent and corrupting foreign businessmen.

    And yet the tributes paid to the King in response to news of his death would, if one did not know better, appear to refer to some benign, liberal, progressive leader of an enlightened democracy. For example:

    "He will be remembered for his commitment to peace and for strengthening understanding between faiths"
    - David Cameron

    Samira Rahmoon, center, the wife of Lebanese TV psychic Ali Sibat who was arrested by the Saudi religious police in May 2008 and sentenced to death last November on charges of practicing witchcraft, tries to block the road with her daughter Jamal, appealing for her husband's release just months after he escaped a sentence of beheading.  (picture AP)

    'King Abdullah was a strong advocate of women'

    "Despite the turmoil of events in the region around him, he was a patient and skilful moderniser of his country"

    "A brave partner in fighting violent extremism who proved just as important as a proponent of peace"

    "As a leader, he was always candid and had the courage of his convictions. The closeness and strength of the partnership between our two countries is part of King Abdullah's legacy"
    - Barack Obama


    The penalty for homosexuality, adultery, drug use and political dissidence in Saudi Arabia is beheading.

    Boggart Blog joins mainstream media and world leaders in saying, "Yeah, King Abdulla was a really enlightened rule, he should have been a role model for politicians everywhere. In fact, come to think of it, he was. 
     
  • So Who's Making Up Innuendos About Leon Brittan

    The rumor mill has gone wild since the death of alleged dossier - shredder Leon Brittan. Bizarrely his friend Lord Deben seems to think the various allegations raging from Brittan's role in covering up the activities of a Westminster paedophile ring, to his actual involvement in sexual abuse of children only originated recently.

    Politicians who have used Twitter to make "innuendos and insinuations" about Lord Brittan are "wicked" and should "shut up", a friend of the late peer has said.

    Lord Deben, a former cabinet minister, accused MPs of maligning Lord Brittan's reputation "in order to make themselves look as if they know something when they don't".

    Brittan was also also accused of "improper conduct with children" by Labour MPs in the Commons in October last year, sparking a row over parliamentary privilege.

    Two dossiers submitted to the Home Office, one by Geoffrey Dickens, the late Tory MP, the other by Former Labour Cabinet Minister Baroness (Battling Barbara) Castle but no record of any subsequent criminal inquiry has been found and both dossiers have disappeared.

    Earlier this week another secret government file on 'the unnatural sexual behaviour' of politicians and public servants at Westminster was found by an academic carrying out research at the Government's National Archive in Kew.

    Is it too much of a very coincidence that the government figure whose name featured most prominently in the case died just a day after the 'unnatural sex' folder was handed to the authorities and news of its existence was leaked to the media? You may say that, we could not possibly comment.

  • The lies and deceit of official unemployment statistics

    Economy Booming, Unemployment Dropping So Why Are So Many People Out Of Work?

    by Phil T Looker, The Daily Stirrer

    Unemployment is in freefall the latest government figures tell us. So why aren't we feeling it?

    More people are working, but work doesn't pay a living wage. Employment is up, but tax revenue is down. The economy is humming again, yet Britain is still in debt. What exactly is going on?

    The latest statistics, published today show unemployment rates have fallen to their lowest level in five years. The Coalition has presided over an incredible boom in employment, with Britain gaining jobs at the fastest rate of any country in Europe. This week David Cameron even resurrected the old dream of “full employment”; our own leader column calls it a “jobs miracle”.

    So why isn’t it doing us any good?

    Lefties will screech about the need to raise the minimum wage, but the minimum wage has never worked and never will. Employers imply cut hours.

    Even with more people in work than ever before tax revenues aren't as high as were predicted. Why? The usual suspects are involved, part time working, zero hours contracts, and the statistical trick of only counting those claiming job seekers allowance as unemployed and classifying the long term unemployed (jobseekers allowance runs out after two years,) as not economically active. Count the real unemployed rather than the 'scientifically' unemployed and the figure has dropped little since its peak in 2009. As it happens, two analysts at Citigroup - Michael Saunders and Ann O'Kelly - have been considering exactly this question.

    They found that the problem is not corporation tax – higher profits mean revenues have grown at almost double the rate predicted. Nor is it VAT, which has grown by exactly as much as expected. Stamp duty has gone up by 34 per cent. Neither high-rolling executives nor ordinary shoppers have slowed down their contributions. You can read the full analysis with charts in this Daily Telegraph article.

    It is an excellent analysis and confirms all of the suspicions cited by business managers and accountants. It will be useful however, for the benefit of those who are not accountants, to expand on the bare statistics in order to highlight where the under-employed, and those who claim the lion's share of working tax credits, are coming from. See this report created by a statistician with the help of a Freedom Of Information request. Yes, its another indictment of uncontrolled immigration and the eagerness of main pary politicians to smooth the path of those who arrive in our country illegally, to full residency rights.

    The problem with the Government / Office of National Statistics methodology is the manner in which the UK assigns 'nationality' to anyone who wasn't born in this country, and excludes naturalised British citizens (i.e. it doesn't include non-UK born children who were naturalised).

    From Table 2 in Saunders and Kelly's analysis it is notable that of lower income tax credits families with children - i.e. whose awards include both Working Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit - over a quarter (27.13%) are migrant families.

    From Table 3 this group of lower income families with children forms almost half (48.25%) of all migrant families claiming tax credits. Lower income families with children form a smaller proportion of non migrant families claiming tax credits (39.14%).

    From Table 3 a slightly lower proportion of migrant families are out of work families with children (26.5%) than non migrant families (31.4%). However, from Table 2 migrant families comprise nearly a fifth of tax credits families who are out of work couples with children (19.49%) but only half that proportion of out of work single parents (10.59%).

    The key issue however is that despite the increase in employment numbers there has not been a corresponding increase in the income tax take.

    Clearly there has been an increase in low paid low skilled jobs. The influx of labour from eastern Europe and the subcontinent combined with Gordon Browns working tax credits has meant that the elasticity of labour supply has depressed wage growth and it may be simply that the treasury models have incorrectly forecast, in their models, this effect.
    Secondly, there has been a significant increase in self employment, many of these self employment jobs have been created by East Europeans typically your Polish/ Romanian builders and as such the tax take from such employment is generally much lower than PAYE as a result of cash transactions etc.

    Additionally, at least from my experience, much of the self employment increase has also been driven from higher Salary earners particularly in the media and IT sectors (so fed up with high levels of Tax and what they see as Government waste) that they opt out of PAYE employment and take on contract work under IR 35 where they can reduce their Tax charge by as much as 30% to 40% as well as their NI charges.

    Thirdly, the very low even negative yields on fixed income investments that have resulted from low interest rates must have a significant impact on the tax take.

    Statisticians delude themselves that those not inducted into the mysteries of the dark arts are easily fooled by graphs and charts, in truth it is statisticians who are easily deceived by their own deceptions. People who live in the real world do not look at and graphs, they look at the bottom line of their payslip and think about how they will stretch it to pay the bills and put food on the table

    The do - gooders can screech all they like and demand that the minimum wage be raised to £10 per hour or even higher. If like a young woman I know, somebody is bullied by public servants into taking a minimum wage 'job' that only provided seven and a half hours a week work, in order to get her off the unemployed register, it still isn't going to giver her family a living wage.

  • Chilcott and Burying Bad News

    malcolm tucker bury bad news
    Were he real Malcolm Tucker would be busy burying shitloads of bad news between now and May (source)

    The long General Election campaign looks like it might be quite entertaining. This morning as the staunchly conservative Daily Telegraph ran an op-ed that wittered at length about how UKIP support was flowing back to the Tories and the Greens are going to be the surprise package in May, taking over 10% of the vote, two new polls were published, both showing a narrow lead for The Conservatives and Labour support ebbing away to The Greens. UKIP polled 20% and 18%, but figures higher than their recent average. UKIP haemorrhaging support seems a rather perverse interpretaion of those figures.

    That was not what promises the most fun however, even if watching pundits and my critics eat their words is a favourite pastime of mine. No, the thing that offers the most potential for wallowing in schadenfreude is the attempts to justify holding back the publication of The Chilcott report into the Iraq war of 2003 with its dodgy dossiers, weapons of mass destruction, sexing up evidence and the likely exposure of a former Labour as a traitor and war criminal.

    I am talking about Anthony Charles Lynton Blair of course. He's long gone from the domestic politics scene of course, but even so the full disclosure of dodgy deals he cooked up with the Bush administration in Washington would result in Labour meltdown.

    And trying to 'bury bad news' to employ a Blairism, might well be more harmful. Not only does it hand Nigel Farage a stick with which to beat Labour (note the correct syntax - us Libertarians are well educated), it reinforces the impression that the main parties are all uniformly corrupt and dishonest.

    Manipulating the 'free press' is of course par for the course in the western democracies these days, as this article from US News site Washington's blog explains very clearly.

    And if they're doing it in America you can bet our lot are at it too.

    "Government minister"lards the lean earth" (almost Shakespeare)

    Boggart Blog has reported recently on the abhorrence of Muslims to all things pig related. Amid the surfeit of scaremongering about Islamic extremist terrorism and attempts to secure immunity from attack by appeasement we have seen Oxford University Press ban all pig related words from its publications because pigs are an abomination to Allah and references to them will offend Muslims, while several restaurant chains have stopped serving any dish containing ham or bacon.

    And yet, with typical ham (oops, pardon) fisted incompetence the government, in sending a letter to all British Mosques asking for their help in rooting out extremists in the UK's Muslim communities, appear to have made matters worse.

    How so, you might well ask.

    Well the letter, sent to extablishments in which the mere mention of bacon butties, sausage and chips or spam, spam, spam, egg, beans and spam is lisble to trigger apopleptic fits, was drafted and signed by that well known barrel of lard, Eric Pickles of whom Shakespeare might have written: "He sweats to death and lards the lean earth as he walks along."

  • Blunt reponse to a bigoted, elitist Labour tosser.

    James Blunt  Instument verbally batters Labour MP(Image Source)

    The singer James Blunt (yes I know what his name rhymes with) has hit back at Labour MP Chris Bryant, calling him a "classist gimp” and a "prejudiced wazzock” for comments suggesting that Blunt only made it in the music industry because he was from a privileged background. In the strongly worded letter, Blunt reveals how his upbringing actually worked against him in the industry, and how producers requested he adopt a regional accent.

    In an interview with The Guardian, Bryant suggested Blunt had only been successfulk in the music business because he went to boarding school. By the same logic Bryant could have said to himself, I'm not going to criticize James Blunt, he used to be in the special forces, he's so hard his farts could kill me.

    Instead, the nasty, elitist, Labour shite continued to belittle the achievements of people who had the benefit of a kind of education no longer available in state schools, i.e. one where you learn stuff instead of being bombarded with politically correct propaganda for thirteen years.

    Bryant continued his attack on 'posh' people by blaming them (instead of the politicized education system) for the number of retards churned out by state schools.

    "I am delighted that Eddie Redmayne won [a Golden Globe for best actor], but we can't just have a culture dominated by Eddie Redmayne and James Blunt and their ilk,” he said. "Where are the Albert Finneys and the Glenda Jacksons? They came through a meritocratic system."

    Hmmm, another leftie who should think before opening his mouth. Abolition of selective education has been a Labour sacred cow for years but Albert Finney (Salford Grammar) and Glenda Jackson (West Kirby County Grammar, Wirral Merseyside) both benefitted from the evil elitist grammar schools that gave so many people the kind of leg up in life that just isn't available from the comprehensive propaganda factories.

    but there were plenty of very talented and successful people emerged from the secondary Modern school system, getting their qualifications through further education after leaving full time schooling. People mature at different rates, excel in different ways and have different education needs.

    So Bryant should be aware there are no Albert Finneys or Glenda Jacksons coming through because the dumbed down, one-size-fits-all system drags the brightest down to the level of the mediocre ... And yes I did, an elite, private Grammar school.

    To his great credit James Blunt bashed off a very funny letter to smug bastard Bryant. Here it is in full:

    Here is his letter in full:

    Dear Chris Bryant MP,

    You classist gimp. I happened to go to a boarding school. No one helped me at boarding school to get into the music business. I bought my first guitar with money I saved from holiday jobs (sandwich packing!). I was taught the only four chords I know by a friend. No one at school had ANY knowledge or contacts in the music business, and I was expected to become a soldier or a lawyer or perhaps a stockbroker. So alien was it, that people laughed at the idea of me going into the music business, and certainly no one was of any use.

    In the army, again, people thought it was a mad idea. None of them knew anyone in the business either.

    And when I left the army, going against everyone's advice, EVERYONE I met in the British music industry told me there was no way it would work for me because I was too posh. One record company even asked if I could speak in a different accent. (I told them I could try Russian).

    Every step of the way, my background has been AGAINST me succeeding in the music business. And when I have managed to break through, I was STILL scoffed at for being too posh for the industry.

    And then you come along, looking for votes, telling working class people that posh people like me don't deserve it, and that we must redress the balance. But it is your populist, envy-based, vote-hunting ideas which make our country crap, far more than me and my shit songs, and my plummy accent.

    I got signed in America, where they don't give a stuff about, or even understand what you mean by me and "my ilk”, you prejudiced wazzock, and I worked my arse off. What you teach is the politics of jealousy. Rather than celebrating success and figuring out how we can all exploit it further as the Americans do, you instead talk about how we can hobble that success and "level the playing field”. Perhaps what you've failed to realise is that the only head-start my school gave me in the music business, where the VAST majority of people are NOT from boarding school, is to tell me that I should aim high. Perhaps it protected me from your kind of narrow-minded, self-defeating, lead-us-to-a-dead-end, remove-the-‘G'-from-‘GB' thinking, which is to look at others' success and say, "it's not fair.”

    Up yours,

    James Cucking Funt

  • We said 2014 was the warmest year on record… but we’re only 38% sure we were right - NASA

    As the global warming debate goes on and it becomes increasingly clear when the Warmageddonist climate science lobby said "The science is settled" what they meant was the climate scientists had agreed to tell the same lie to keep the research grant money flowing, the whole issue becomes more and more blurred.

    from Jo Nova blog
    Nasa climate scientists: We said 2014 was the warmest year on record… but we’re only 38% sure we were right

    Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all

    Does that mean 97% of climate experts are 62% sure they are wrong?*

    The thing with half-truths is that they generate a glorious fog, but it has no substance. Ask of the spin-cloud a couple of sensible questions and the narrative collapses. This is the kind of analysis that would have stopped the rot 25 years ago if most news outlets had investigative reporters instead of science communicators trained to “raise awareness”. (The media IS the problem). If there was a David-Rose-type in most major dailies, man-made global warming would never have got off the ground.

    The claim made headlines around the world, but yesterday it emerged that GISS’s analysis – based on readings from more than 3,000 measuring stations worldwide – is subject to a margin of error. Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all.

    Yet the Nasa press release failed to mention this, as well as the fact that the alleged ‘record’ amounted to an increase over 2010, the previous ‘warmest year’, of just two-hundredths of a degree – or 0.02C.

    The margin of error is about a tenth of a degree, so those error bars are 500% larger than the amount pushed in headlines all over the world. Gavin Schmidt of course, is horrified that millions of people may have been mislead:

    "GISS’s director Gavin Schmidt has now admitted Nasa thinks the likelihood that 2014 was the warmest year since 1880 is just 38 per cent. However, when asked by this newspaper whether he regretted that the news release did not mention this, he did not respond," the Daily Mail reported.

    I’m sure he’s too busy contacting newspapers and MSNBC to make sure stories from NASA GISS are accurate and scientifically correct.

  • Believe The Phoney Narrative Or Be Branded a Conspiracy Theorist

    Living the fairy tale

    The political, business and academic elites and their servants in the print and broadcast media have to make you believe a phoney narrative about the state of the world, they dare not let us start talking about how much trouble the west is really in. The economies of most of the developed nations, the western democracies, are in effect bankrupt, their debts and obligations exceed their assets by considerable margins.

    Burdened by ageing populations, high labour costs, soaring unemployment, supportably generous welfare payments, punitive taxation and bloated public sectors they are losing out to the enemy, – i.e. any country that has resources or whose economies are surging on the strength of exports of cheap manufactured goods, like Russia, China, India, Brazil, anyone with oil, gas, minerals, metals, gold etc.

    Rather than admit multicultualism has failed, open - doors immigration policy has been economically and socially disastrous, and the oligarchical system badged up as Marxism lite, with its populist promises of fairness, equality and redistribution of wealth has broken every promise, your government and it’s media mouthpieces requires you to believe a certain narrative.

    The story goes like this: The world is divided into good guys (white hats) and bad guys (black hats). The good guys consist of all Western governments and their allies, whether taken individually or collectively as members of the ‘international community’. Forget that most of the recent troubles stem from the interference of the FUKUS axis powers (France, UK, USofA), the United Nations and NATO in the domestic political affairs of sovereign states, or blithely and unilaterally tearing up bilateral and legally binding treaties like the one agreed with Russia that prevented the EU and NATO seducing into their membership any of the former Soviet states that became independent following the break up of the USSR.

    The bad guys are mostly Russia and Iran, not so much China, although they are not exactly best friends with the west, the Chinese hold to much of our debt for western governments to risk pissing them off, thus it is Russia and Vladimir Putin who has to be demonised. Unfortunately Putin is not an arrested adolescent who wants everybody to like him. he understands that his job is to look after Russian interests long and short term.

    Like Don Quixote, these governments are out there in a perilous world, perpetually tilting a the windmills of economic recovery, slaying dragons of terrorism, and fighting injustice by ensuring the rich get richer and the poor get shafted (viz. green energy policies that have made home heating unaffordable for many).

    Thus when Cameron and Obama engage in a love in, mutually congratulating each other for the deft economic management that has led to financial recovery nobody can feel, (GDP up, benefit payments up, debt up, sales and incomes down; unemployment down, part time working, zero hours contracts, people excluded from the workforce up; inflation down, wages, saving, pensions devalued etc. we are not supposed to point out the obvious contradictions in the statistics that 'prove' what a good job our politicians are doing.

    Then there have been the various brutal, undemocratic dictatorships, authoritarian and oppressive regimes that may have crushed dissent but managed to keep the people who did not rock the boat in relative prosperity, they had to be reduced to at worst rubble like Syria and Iraq, or a failed state like Libya.

    So western leaders are fighting terrorists, jihadists, gangster states and ‘bad guys’ like Boko Haram who are out there doing infamy. Or as Kenneth Williams once said in Carry On Cleo, Infamy, infamy, they've all got it in for me."

    In the fairy tale world politicians inhabit ‘we’ have no aggressive intentions ('We' did not fund and support the arab Spring uprisings, or the rebellion in Ukraine, 'we' do not engage in false flag outrages, on spy on other nations (who are planning to harm us) and 'our' citizens (for their increased safety). We do not engage in realpolitik. We do not kill people who know too much, in order to protect national security. We have no ulterior motives. Our foreign policy is guided entirely by lofty moral principles. We have no geostrategic or economic interests. Energy resources and pipeline routes do not interest us. We are the good guys (White hats).

    We, the western allies, would never conspire to bring about ‘regime change’ by deploying the air forces of three of the worlds five major military power to bomb the crap out of a little country of 5 million population (though we might consider, on humanitarian grounds, providing air support for a legitimate rebellion led by religious fanatics, tribal warlords and gangster (see Libya link above) nor would 'we' meddle in other states' affairs to ensure certain political outcomes that suit our economic interests. Anyone who says we do a ‘conspiracy theorist’, a bounder, a cad and an all round rotter. We do not engage in ‘terrorism’ and never ‘talk to terrorists’ or deal with states or organizations that do. We are led by decent folk, who only want to do the decent thing.

    We are the good guys, as the picture below shows.

  • Je Suis Saussice (defending your freedom to eat sausages)

    sausages an abomination
    Sausages: I have eaten some abominable ones in motorway services but are they an abomination to God?

    Does that headline mean Boggart Blogger are owning up to being a dish of sausages, you might well ask.

    The anser of coursse is "No". Just as we showed solidarity with the publishers of Charlie Hebdo magazine after twelve staff were murdered by religious extremists and defended the right of citizens in democratic nations to criticize religion by saying "Je Suis Charlie" so we are now making a stand in support of the freedom to eat sausages (which is an abomination to Allah apparently, by saying "Je Suis Saussice".

    Who has been oppressing sausages you might well ask. Well who do you think? Here's the story:

    paraphrased from The Times (a paywalled website unless you know how to get in through the back door
    )
    Religious conservatives in Pakistan have been on the case of opposition leader and former cricket player Imran Khan's latest wife after TV pictures of her cooking and selling pork sausages found their way onto You Tube, the Times reports.

    Muslim weather presenter Reham Kahn, a who worked on BBC regional news programme ‘South Today', was filmed handling a butcher's pork sausage as part of a package for the programme's broadcast from the South of England Show in 2011.

    Part of the feature filmed at the fair in Ardingly, West Sussex, had Mrs Kahn being coached by sausage making champion David Bell, owner of Bangers Galore in the nearby town of Horsham in the ancient art of frying sausages.

    The clip has been circulated and widely viewed in Pakistan, along with clips of her wearing revealing outfits.

    But Mr Bell, who was the main subject of the sausage news item and rightly so, champion sausage makers are to be celebrated, spoke out against the controversy saying it was ridiculous.

    "She didn't actually eat any of the sausages” he pointed out. (Apparently proximity is enough.)

    Islam strictly forbids the eating and handling of pork under its religious laws and the footage has caused anger among conservatives who say the film shows her handling the meat, and therefore breaking the law.

    Full article - paywalled

    I hope some pseudo-liberal, crypto-fascist readers whose instinct is to defend this attack by Islamic extremists on our freedom to eat sausages on the grounds that we must promote diversity by showing sensitivity to other cultural traditions will remember exactly what diversity means next time they get the urge to throw a hissy fit over some truly liberal bloggers defent the right of Christians to oppose the latest demand for privileged statius from gays, or the right of pagans to oppose the introduction of Frankenstein foods to Europe.

  • A New Anti Establishment Party With The best Name Yet

    I see somebody has formed yet another new anti - establisment party to contest the general election on May 6 against Labour, Conservatives Lib Dems and the rest, with the intention of smashing the two party status quo, reclaiming sovereign rights from the Euronazi bureaucratic dictatorship and returning power to the democratic process. They are the

    Free,
    United,
    Common,
    Kingdom,
    Energy,
    Movement,
    Allied,
    Libertarian
    Loony
    party.

    Sadly I don't think they have a realistic chance of forming a government, but at least they have the best acronym.

  • Oxford University Bans All Things Pig Related In Support Of Free Speech

    Je Suis Charlie says Oxford University and immediately their <del>Cowards College</del> publishing arm shows solidarity with Charlie Hebdo's defence of free speech by chickening out and banning from their publications all references to anything pig or pork related.

    This blog has often said the higher up the education ladder people progress, the more stupid they become. Professor Brian Cox is a case in point, he thinks we should be spending £$€trillions exploring space.

    BRIAN YOU CUPID STUNT, THE CLUE IS IN THE NAME. SPACE. THINK ABOUT IT. IT'S FULL OF FUCK ALL.

    It is not just Brian Cox though, they're all at it. Take the pillocks at Oxford University for example. If there is one thing capable of making the terminal idiot even more stupid than a brain dead brick, it's political correctness. And in their efforts to be 'right on' and politically correct, Oxford University Press have done probably the most stupid thing ever done by allegedly intelligent human beings (apart from when the Labour Party elected Ed. Miliband as their leader).

    They have banned all pig and pork related words from their publications in order to make sure nothing they publish can offend Muslim sensibilities. (Source: Daily Telegraph)

    Peppa Pig - banned by the cowards of Oxford University Press

    Think about what that will mean to the silly sausages; the character of Piglet will have to be removed from Winnie the Pooh stories, undergrads will be expelled for watching Peppa Pig on TV, football fans who support West Ham or Birmingham City or Nottingham Forest will be banned from wearing team scarves in the University Precincts, students who are guilty of receiving Spam in their email inbox will be disciplined, staff and pupils will have to boycott pubs called The Pig and Whistle, nobody will be allowed to store food in the larder, games of backgammon will be banned and the works of one of britain's greatest scholars, Francis Bacon found in the University buildings will be burned.

    Ah! might there be a hidden agenda. after all Bacon was an alumnus of the great rival university, Cambridge.
