# The BBC has never been unbiased. Patten may be greedy but McAlpine doesn’t look underfed either.
# Having lived in HK whilst he was Governor and experienced his limp leadership – the article puts everything back into perspective = I totally agree and best he leaves.
# Europhile says it all about the measure of the man.
# Patten is protected by the establishment who have ensured throughout his career he has been able to move from one cushy job to another even though he has been a failure at them with the possible exception as University Chancellor. He is that epitome of the the socialist liberal Europhile politician who have run this country so badly for the last 30 years.
So nice to read some normal, sane people are still out there.
However, Heath, Prior, Walker, Major, Patten, Barber, Biffen, Carrington, Clarke, St John-Stevas, Gilmour, Haselhurst, Heseltine, Hurd, Meyer, Pym, Scott, Young – those are some of the most treacherous people this country has seen, along with their colleagues:
Blair, Brown, Balls, Miliband, Wilson, Galloway and so on but to be fair to those on the lower list, they were at least honest traitors – they were open about selling this country down the drain and boasting about it. Whereas they will just be hung, those on the list above need a dose of hanging, drawing and quartering.
As emotive language such as calling them scumbags will get me nowhere, I’ll refrain from calling them that.
I was asked by James Wilson:
My question is, considering the odd and alien demographics you have already imported, is it [the south and east European migration] also a good thing? What does the English right-wing blogosphere think?
Not sure if it’s specifically a “rightwing” thing but there is a mood up and down the country against the excesses of immigration. Most moderates would say the local shopkeeper is fine, the ones they know are fine but the sheer numbers, the impunity with which they’re arriving and living off benefits at taxpayer expense and the radicalism of so many of them even after they’re given everything they want by the government – that does get up ordinary people’s noses and one hears comments in RL the whole time.
The Muslim grooming of local teenagers for sex did not go down at all well with the indigenous here.
It’s a respect thing, as Americans might say.
Like you over there, as you see from the first half of this post, there are two separate species, alien to each other but living within the same borders.
One lot are into government enforced equality at any price, the selling out of the country, rampant bansturbation, the suppression of traditions and culture, big government, bureaucracy and quangos, whilst spouting all about “fairness” “tolerance” and “sharing the wealth”. They’re into quotas in a big way, as against merit and ability. They think parachutism is a fine thing. The terms “self-entitled”, “sense of victimhood” and “gimme gimme for free” were coined for these people. Many of them are obese and covered in tatts. They’re down on “capitalists” or anyone having more money than them and they want it redistributed their way.
The other lot use words such as “patriotic”, “common sense”, “discretion”, “initiative”, “taking responsibility”, “maturity”, “do unto others”, “self-respect”, “deportment”, “heritage”, “working for a living”, “inheritance”, “take as one finds” and so on. Other terms associated with them include “traditional family”, “defence of the nation”, “sovereignty”, “protecting children” and they use the word “heroes” for our armed forces, rather than “warmongering babykillers”. The more politically astute of these are down on global socialists, the elite, including crony capitalists who ruin it for everyone else and act like gangsters.
This latter is one of the few things both sides agree on.
