Browsing the news is strange now. You might as well treat Viz comic as your major source of information. Some of the characters in there wouldn’t be out of place in the pages of a ‘real’ news source. ‘Spoilt Bastard’ is definitely modern MP material. The stories I’m currently editing for the anthology feel more ‘real’ than the stuff coming at me from the news. They are certainly better written and make a lot more sense.
This, of course, assumes there is a ‘real’ news source left on the planet. Most of them seem to print their own versions of reality, often with no regard to the reality of what is really happening in the world. The times they are a-changing, and lately the pace of change has quickened.
Not for the better. Not from where I’m sitting.
Currently, the House of Lards is trying to impose its own will on the people of this country. The House of Lards was meant to be a check on the House of Commons. It was supposed to be full of wise old fogeys who would look at the lunatic proposals of the whippersnappers in government and say ‘Hang on a minute…’
Not any more. Successive governments have stuffed that place with cronies. The Lards are appointed, not elected. We can’t vote for them and we can’t get them out of office. Lately they have their heads so far up their own orifices they are looking out from behind their own teeth. They are not supposed to make decisions, they are supposed to be there to temper the decisions made by the elected monkeys in the silly place we call Commons.
The House of Lards is becoming a de facto dictatorship. It’s no longer fit for purpose. Time to ditch it.
Or maybe replace the Lards with those guys in flat caps who used to sit in the corner of pubs (remember pubs?) with a whippet at their feet, smoking a pipe and sipping a black-and-tan. They’d do a much better job. Just keep them supplied with that dried horse manure they like to smoke and the beer that could legitimately be called a cocktail and that’s all they need. No £300 a day, they don’t need that much a week, and they don’t need to be supplied with big red Santa suits trimmed with dead ferrets either. We’d save a fortune and the country would be run better.
What about our elected leaders? What a bunch of shining little wits they are! Bickering like children and pushing their own personal prejudices and agendas as if the people who voted for them just don’t matter at all.
Which, of course, they don’t. Once they have been elected they are elevated to a degree of status that makes God scowl with envy and they can do whatever they please. Just because you voted for them doesn’t mean they have any intention of doing what they said they would do. You just vote. Once you’ve done that, fuck off home and keep out of the way. Important People have Important Things to do and you get to do what you are told by the people you elected to do what you wanted them to do.
Did you want them to totally screw up your life with ever-deeper control? Did you want them to take all the money you worked for and throw it away on their own pet projects? You didn’t? What a shame. That’s what they’re going to do anyway.
It is a constant comfort to me to know that nobody I’ve ever voted for has ever won an election. That might be because I vote based on the person, not the party. I vote for the one who sounds like they make sense. Those people are unlikely to get anywhere near government.
Again, the times they are a-changing. Turkey might be the fulcrum that tips this lever.
Donnie Trumpton won the election to be King of America. He’s not a career politician, he doesn’t speak like a politician, and that’s both good and bad. He does what he says he will do but the flip side is, if he’s said it he feels obliged to do it. Unlike politicians, he doesn’t think hard before speaking and then come out with some platitude that can be translated either way later on. He just Does Things.
He has declared war on Islam in a business fashion, not a political fashion. Not just the extreme Islam, all of it. Well okay, the extremists don’t wear a uniform so it’s hard to tell but this is a sledgehammer approach and while I personally don’t like it, it is in fact the only viable option left. The extremists have made it so. The moderates, the ordinary Muslims, aren’t dobbing in their crazy mates and are not reforming their religion to get rid of the nutters. They will be really surprised when they are rounded up and sent to camps. Ask the American Japanese about the last world war. It is happening again.
Christianity did have a Reformation. Oh there are still violent Christian nutters but you won’t find a single church anywhere who recognises them as part of their religion. Modern Christianity is all tea and cakes and when they speak to you, you’ll really believe they have no bones in their arms.
I used to be visited by Jehovah’s Witnesses often. Nice enough people. They invited me to events I never went to. They gave me their comics and I gave them mine. They were particularly keen on the New Scientist copy I gave them that spoke of blood transfusions and how they had never actually been clinically tested. It was the one describing artificial blood, quite a few years back.
Yet they never threatened me in any way at all. They invited me to join. I declined. That was fine by them. They’d ask again, I’d decline again. I never, ever saw a JW shriek and declare all unbelievers must be beheaded. You don’t want to join, they believe you’re losing out but the point is they give you the choice.
Oh I know the stories of what happens if you leave that group but basically it amounts to ‘Shun the non-believer!’. They don’t issue death threats or throw you off tall buildings and stone your splattered remains to be on the safe side.
Islam, however, is at the stage Christianity was at in the 15th century. When the Inquisition killed, in horrible ways, anyone who didn’t agree with them. Their courts were rigged. If you were accused then you must be guilty of something and punishment of some kind was inevitable and always brutal.
Turkey is an Islamic nation but the government is secular. At least that was the idea. Kamal Ataturk, the country’s founder, was a visionary and I would go so far as to say he was one of the great men of history. He separated State and religion from the outset. He must be so ashamed of what has happened to destroy his vision.
Turkey was once a great place to go for a holiday. Personally I won’t go to any country that even borders that place now. It’s fast turning into another North Korea.
If you believe the news.
If you do, then 30-year-old ‘refugees’ are children. There is no problem in Sweden, Malmo being the rape capital of Europe is an honour and they have put up a gold plaque to commemorate it. There are no cases of female genital mutilation in the UK, no beheadings in the UK, no riots in France or anywhere else, nothing is happening. Nothing to see here, move along, keep your head down and keep paying those taxes. All is well, your daughter’s grooming for a life of being gang raped while drunk is just part of their culture, innit?
The political demigods might be awakening to reality at last. In the Netherlands it looks like Geert Wilders is in with a real chance of winning next Wednesday’s election. The Turkish riots in that country might have secured his victory. The current bunch of feeble minded kowtowing Dhimmis have known this for a while and decided to ban Turkish politicians from campaigning in their country.
Turkey declares this as a Nazi-style move. Turkey allows no foreign politics to be campaigned in Turkey. Pot… Kettle… Politically Correct Very Dark Grey?
Or is that doubleplusgrey in Newspeak?
All this ramble, all this post, all these words, depend upon the veracity of sources. The news. Eye witness accounts, assuming they didn’t dream it after a bottle of whisky and a kebab. It could all be entirely wrong.
It could all be entirely right.
It could all be fantasy.
But look, the Leftie governments are clamping down on Islamic immigration and their general behaving like dicks just before elections that would pretty definitely see them all out of work. All over Europe.
Why? Because the opposition are promising to do something about the things real people in the real world are utterly sick of. The things all the Leftie governments pretend aren’t happening.
Sure, they want Trump discredited. He started it by breaking the first rule of politics – actually doing what he said he would do.
Now every country out there is looking for politicians who will do what they said they would do, and none of them are among the current elected monkeys. People want something new. Something true.
We want reality again. It’s been a long time.
But Muslims beware. You’ve had a really easy time in the West so far. It’s about to change and your life is going to get hard. Those countries you escaped from will seem like Utopia compared to what’s coming, I’d like to be sympathetic but you did nothing while evil people used your religion for their own ends. It’s probably too late to fix it now.
You can try. If you can be bothered.
It’s up to you now.
