Antifat demands more money

Not a misspelling. The anti-obesity Puritans now say that ‘junk’ food companies have far bigger advertising budgets than they have. Therefore they cannot compete. Well, boo hoo.

First of all, they are not supposed to be competing with private companies. They, like most modern ‘charities’, are funded by Government to give Government new ways to be oppressive, totalitarian bastards.

Secondly, I do not care how much money any private company spends on advertising. It’s not my money, never was and never will be. It’s not being paid for by squeezing taxes out of the rest of us. If you buy their products then you’re adding to their profits but that is entirely your choice.

Nobody is forced to buy any of those products. They do not come round and force-feed you chicken nuggets and canned spaghetti hoops then rifle through your pockets for money. They simply make products available for those who want them. Advertising is their way of telling us all that the product is available. You can ignore ads, you know. Only a gullible idiot would consider advertising as any kind of ‘forcing’.

Antifat, on the other hand, get their money from Government which takes it from us by force. If you don’t hand over a chunk of the money you worked for to a bunch of self-important entitled suits in Wastemonster, they will put you in jail and take the money anyway,

That is why I do not care at all about the £143 million spent by food companies on advertising. They aren’t making me contribute a penny towards it. I care a hell of a lot about the £5.2 million wasted on keeping jumped-up prodnoses in a cushy job because I am forced to contribute to that.

It annoys me immensely and I’m not even overweight. It annoys me because it’s another arm of the Smoker Hate and Booze Hate that I’ve also been forced into contributing to.

There are already strict rules on advertising food ‘to children’ (who have limited to zero means of buying any of it) and yet it’s never enough, is it? As with all the other Puritans we pay for, there’s always another increment, another slice of the salami. And now they will tie in nicely with Tessie Maybe’s long-held desire to control the Internet harder than China does.

All this crap has to go. We’d pay less tax and the NHS would have more funds if all this shit were swept away.

And we could have a bag of chips without watching out for the prodnoses.

Accidents

A prophetic title as it turned out. I hit ‘publish’ accidentally before writing anything. The rest will be up shortly… Here it is.

Today, a man drove a car (well, a Prius) into eleven people outside a London museum. Police reacted at once – this is the format of several recent terrorist attacks so it’s no surprise the police mobilised at once. The man was pulled from his crashed vehicle, pinned down and arrested.

Initially reported as a terror attack by some news outlets (The Daily Hysteria made it top story) but as a ‘crash’ by the likes of the BBC and Grauniad, it has now been officially listed as an accident.

Well, accidents do happen, and sometimes accidents involve a lot of people getting hurt. We’ve had some nasty motorway pile-ups in the past. So okay, I can go with ‘accident’ for now. Particularly since ISIS haven’t claimed responsibility so far. They’re usually quick with their claims.

Many people refuse to believe this was an accident and that’s no surprise either. The politicians and media have told so many lies that nobody believes a word they say any more. Except those who use filters to believe the stuff they like and not-believe the stuff they don’t like. Trust me, it’s safest not to believe any of it. You might as well get your news from the old ladies in the coffee shop these days. It’s probably more reliable.

So, whether this was an attack loony or just a driver who got confused and lost control, we’ll probably never know for sure. Any similar accident in future is going to be assumed, by many people, to be definitely Islamic terrorism no matter how many officials and reporters come out saying it was just an accident.

Politicians, press, police and any other official out there – you brought this on yourselves. You have lied and deceived to the point where none of you can be trusted at all. Some police will ask where they have lied and deceived the public – well, one example springs to mind right away. Rotherham. How long did you cover for those rapists again?

Now the police are to arrest anyone who repeatedly views ‘far right’ web sites. What is a far right web site? Anything they want to define as a far right website. Daily Mail, you’re pretty much screwed. The rest of us will soon be afraid to visit blogs that aren’t about cats or flowers or Marxist ideology. Meanwhile, those imported gangs get to do as they please. And the police wonder why they have lost the trust of the public.

As for Islam, you’re going to get the blame for every road accident, every accidental gas explosion, every building that catches fire and you, with the help of the liars who covered for you, made that happen. It’s too late to look for sympathy now. If you want to get rid of the criminal element in your midst, it’s up to you to deal with it. Our police aren’t allowed to do it and our politicians simply will not face it.They’d rather watch people getting killed than risk being called ‘racist’.

Otherwise, you’re going to find you are all tarred with the same brush.

I’m still thinking today’s event was an accident. Surely nobody planning to cause carnage would choose to do it in a Prius?

A mish-mash

Lots of bits. I’m writing and procrastinating about writing by writing something else. This.

I held off saying anything about the Las Vegas shooting until there was some clarity on what happened. There still isn’t any, if anything, it’s got worse.

The shooter was a white man, a Democrat, a Muslim, a lone wolf, part of a terror organisation nobody can identify, a rich man with a girlfriend and everything to live for and no previous indication of any trouble at all, and he shot himself. After he shot around 600 people with an (already illegal in the USA or so I’m told) automatic weapon.

There are reports that there were other guns firing from other hotels. Claims that he didn’t act alone. Claims that someone on the ground was shooting too. Claims that someone set off firecrackers to distract people from the sound of gunshots. I have no idea what to believe now.

Yeah. Pick the truth out of that lot. It’s a mess.

This is, once again, being used as an excuse to take all the guns away from Americans. Well, they took our UK guns away a long time ago and the result? Criminals wave illegal firearms around because they know for sure we law abiding people don’t have any. Their guns were unlicensed and illegal before the ban. It made no difference to them.

I’ve never owned a live round gun. Never wanted one so you could argue the ban made no difference to me. It did though. You see, if a burglar broke into my house before the ban he could not know if I was armed or not. Now he knows I’m not. That makes a big difference. I can’t bluff if the burglar knows for sure I don’t have a gun.

In Scotland you now have to have a licence for an airgun. Sold mine before it happened because it was clearly coming. We had to hand in my son’s BB guns from when he was a child – they fired plastic pellets that could dent paper at 10 yards but they counted as airguns under the new law. So, in Scotland, you can’t even have a BB gun without a licence now.

What I can’t understand is that it is Democrats calling for gun control. So… only the government will have guns, not the people. The Republican government, the one they despise and accuse of corruption, Nazism and white supremacy every minute of every day, will have all the guns. They won’t be allowed to have any, only the Trump government will be armed. Why do they think that’s a good idea?

Well, these are the same people who accuse the police of being racist murderers while insisting only the police should have guns. You can’t expect sense from minds that warped.

It’s also interesting to note than many of the big names claiming that nobody needs a gun for protection are always surrounded by armed security. ‘Hypocrite’ is far too small a word.

And another thing. I doubt that Las Vegas shooter hit with every round. If he hit 600 people from the 35th floor of a hotel then, even giving him a generous 50% hit rate, he must have fired at least 1200 rounds. Surely, someone buying that many rounds – especially for a weapon that the public aren’t allowed to own – would have raised a red flag somewhere? How did he do that?

Anyway, on to cheerier things. The anthology is still on target and after that I have a book by Dirk Vleugels translated from Dutch to French, a resizing of the ‘Han Snel ‘ book (apparently people think it should be bigger), an  abridged version of Hugo Stone’s ‘Cultish’ – all of which should be quick to publish – then I have a novel by Lee Bidgood (who is also in the new anthology) and two of my own, ‘Jessica’s Trap’ and ‘Samuel’s Girl’ which are out of contract with the original publisher and just need new covers and a quick revamp.

Then the Christmas anthology. Busy busy busy.

I’m also back into making little models. I’m thinking of making the van that came with Sparkle Truck  into ‘White Supremacy Van Man’. That should raise a few hackles.

I discovered ‘Metal Earth’ stainless steel kits and have made a few. They’re quick but they take a long time. Even with a magnifier and a good light, they are tiny and shiny and are held together with extremely tiny tags. So I need to stop before it gets to hammer time, and go back to it when the destructive urge has subsided. Total work time is only a few hours but some of them take days to finish.  I’ve made a few, there will be pictures. Also advice if you fancy having a go.

The train obsession has resurfaced. I sold off most of the N gauge stuff when I was broke and have been slowly accumulating OO gauge since. All second hand of course – the older models are basically a motor and contact from the track. Very simple devices. Unless the motor is burned out, a non-runner is either over-oiled or has dirty wheels. Easily fixed, as are missing buffers and couplings. I pick up the non runners on eBay and will sell a few as working engines to make the hobby self funding. Wagons, all I need is the frame and wheels and I can make the rest.

I recently bought two brand new sets. Both have a GWR 0-4-0 tank engine, a few wagons, a basic track oval and a mains-powered controller. One was £60 in Asda, the other was £48 in Toys R Us (half price). The Toys R Us one has repainted the engine blue and given it a probably mythical company name. That’s okay, I can fix that. Excess controllers are easy to sell too.

Modern engines cost a lot more because they have, or can be fitted with, DCC (direct cab control) which means you can run two trains on the same track and control them independently. I don’t want that. It’s great for clubs where you can have people running their own trains and someone in charge of signals so they don’t run a train into the back of another one, but for solo use it’s more concentration than I want to apply. It’s supposed to be a relaxing hobby.

It does mean that the old stuff is on sale cheap. That suits me fine. I recently saw a brand new Class 08 in OO gauge (you might have seen them at mainline stations, the square blue shunting engine) on sale for nearly £200! I bought a Class 58 (a BIG freight diesel) for £25 on eBay. In perfect condition but can’t do the DCC thing. Fine with me, I prefer the old stuff.

Another eBay win was the Lima station with signal. I think I paid about £5 for it. The station is continental and the platforms are too low and too far from the train. I’ve already taken the building off the base and fixed the broken signal. I’ll rebuild platforms over it. The building will make a good house somewhere.

The big thing with this bit of kit is that it has an isolating track. When the signal is red, the train is on dead track. When it’s green, the track is live. It doesn’t use LEDs, it uses a single white racist light and a blanking plate that moves up and down with the switch. I’m fine with that. Filament bulbs are easier to replace anyway.

The bugbear with this one is that the signal light takes power from the track. The higher the power, the brighter the light. This means that to have the light on full brightness the train has to be approaching the station at full speed, hit the dead track section and stop dead with all the passengers creamed into the front end of every coach.

It also means that to have the light green to send the train on its way, the power has to be on full before switching on the track, so the new passengers get creamed into the back of each coach when it takes off like a bullet.

The solution is simple, I just have to rewire so the signal light takes power from a constant source instead of the track. The dead section and light switch will work just the same and the train can come in and leave again at a normal slow speed.

I have to make a portable railway. I have an attic big enough for an impressive O gauge setup but I don’t know how long I’m going to live here. So I need something mobile.

I know, I know, you want to call me a geek and I’m fine with that.

If everyone was into models instead of guns and ideology and hate though, what would the world be like?

The Spanish Acquisition

So the Catalan people remain Spanish, whether they like it or not. We’ll never know how much they don’t like it because the Spanish Robocop brigade have been stealing the ballot boxes. Spain has just invaded its own country and taken control of its own territory, using violence. That’s a tough one to get your head around.

Sure, I have heard that this referendum was not legally approved but really, all that means is that the Spanish government could ignore the result. There was no justification for sending in Stormtroopers to beat up people trying to vote. No distinction either – if someone planned to vote ‘no’ to independence they were beaten up anyway. I bet that changed their minds. If that vote ever takes place there won’t be any doubt about the result. Not now that the Spanish police have shown they are no better than a legal version of Antifa.

There are no videos showing riots by the people. That doesn’t mean there weren’t any, of course, but I haven’t seen any. All the violence came from the riot police. You aren’t supposed to start riots, guys. Read the manual again.

They beat up people standing with their hands up, they beat up old women and they even beat up fire brigade personnel who were trying to protect people from the police. No doubt the police all went home well satisfied with their actions and looking forward to the next time they are called upon to don full armour and beat the shit out of unarmed civilians.

I have heard the counter arguments, mostly involving Mrs. Thatcher ‘using the police against miners etc’ but that’s hardly the same thing as using the police to attack a queue of voters. The Catalans weren’t blockading anything, they didn’t threaten anyone’s fuel supplies, they didn’t threaten anyone at all. They were just in line to vote.

This is the Spanish government using Spanish thugs dressed in armour to attack people voting on something the Spanish government could have just ignored. Declare the ballot illegal and the result is not binding on the government.

Of course, the likelihood is that the vote would have come out in favour of independence and that would have been almost as embarrassing for the government as being seen to be no more than a mob with hired thugs. Still, there was always the possibility of a ‘no’ vote. It could have gone that way.

It won’t now.

Pass the ashtray.

In conversation with @RooBeeDoo1 on Twitter, she made an interesting point. With the threat of imminent nuclear war, why does anyone give a shit about smoking/drinking/salt/fat/sugar or anything else?

Nuclear war is the ultimate equality machine. It doesn’t matter what colour or creed you are when we can each fit into an ashtray as identical piles of glowing grey dust.

Currently, Donnie Trumpton and Kim Wrong-Un are indulging in a session of nuclear powered willie-waving that is escalating rapidly. Kim Wrong-Un is likely to fire the first shot. It’ll probably be over some hairstyle insult or something equally trivial. I don’t think Trump is nuts enough to fire first (Wrong-Un definitely is) but I’m sure that first shot will be followed by a hell of a lot of return shots.

It’ll be the first time in many years that North Korea will be lit up at night.

What then? Well, China and Russia won’t like having a luminous neighbour on their border. And then there’s fallout from any nuclear explosion, which can travel quite some distance on the wind.

If Kim Wrong-Un lands a nuclear bomb halfway up the west coast of America, the fallout will spread over America and probably mostly out into the Pacific. It’s unlikely to involve Canada or Mexico at all.

If Trump lands a nuclear bomb on Pyongyang – there really isn’t much else worth aiming at – the fallout is going to piss off a lot of other countries.They might not become direct allies of the Land of Kimfusion but they aren’t going to be that friendly to America either.

And picking a fight with China and/or Russia has never been a good idea. Pakistan and India aren’t far away and they have nuclear weapons too.

The big concern, as I see it, is not that Kim Wrong-un will start a war – he probably will, he’s nuts enough to think there’ll be a bit of his country left afterwards. No, the big concern is how Donnie Trumpton reacts. If his country is hit with one nuclear bomb, will he respond with ‘Call that a bomb? THIS is a bomb. So is this and this and this’.

He doesn’t need to use nuclear. Most of the people of that country would love to be taken over by capitalists. Or communists. Or even Islam. Any of those would be a vast improvement over what they have now.

I think a lot of the military would be happy to be captured. They can’t just down weapons and not fight because the bowl-haircut in charge will have their families killed. Heck, he does that to people who merely look at his style of government and say ‘Hang on a minute…’

Basically, the only real enemy in that country is Kim Wrong-Un himself. Everyone else, including most of his government, would love to see him erased. He thinks he has support and I’m sure he has a few but really he’s in charge because of layers of terror laid down by his grandfather, then by his father.

Kim Wrong-Un, in reality, nobody likes you at all. They’re all just scared and it only works because you have petty people who love to report other people and nobody can be sure who they are. They worship you because you’ll have them and their families killed if they don’t. No other reason. It’s not loyalty.

Nobody in North Korea knows who they can trust. It’s Orwell’s 1984 in action. Your brother might turn you in to save himself. So everyone has to be very, very careful. The slightest doubt in the regime can get you imprisoned or killed. People have been publicly executed for making international phone calls or watching a Hollywood movie.

Nuke them, and they might rally behind their flag. Invade and they might welcome you.

At the moment, the North Korean soldier fights because his family are at risk from his own leader if he doesn’t. The American soldier fights for flag and country. Not for the President, so don’t think they are bowing to Trump or to Obama or any other president. There is a big difference in motivation there.

Of course it’s not that simple. If America invades, China and Russia will not want an American base on their doorstep. They might resist, not to save Wrong-un but to defend their borders. Wrong-un will see it as support for his regime but they don’t care about him. They just don’t want Patriot missiles that close.

So a ground invasion might not be such a good idea either.

Trump is in a very difficult place. Nukes will piss off every country around North Korea, a ground invasion will worry Russia and China. There are only two real options.

A targeted strike to take out Kim Wrong-Un and his inner cabal, or…

Get China to deal with it. Russia won’t touch it and the North Koreans are more likely to welcome a Chinese takeover than anyone else.

So far, China doesn’t seem interested.

Which is unfortunate. With a few tanks and well-aimed missiles, they could stop World War Three before it starts.

Even so, with all this going on, why are Western governments obsessed with smoking, vaping etc?

Smoke ’em if you got ’em. You might not have to worry about any long term effects.

 

 

Daily Mail demands a police state

The video of my chat with Frank Davis is online but I’ll wait until he posts the link before posting it here. It was his idea and his hard work that went into it and I’m not going to steal the glory. I do need to get a proper webcam though, doing that with a handheld tablet was no fun.

[Update: Frank has now posted Part One]

The anthology progresses. I have five stories so far, one of them from a new author you haven’t read before and who has also sent in an impressively big novel. There’s a steady stream coming in now, it looks so far as if this publishing idea is taking off.

Enough digression. Time to get to the horror of Parsons Green. A Lidl bag! In Parsons Green? How can this be? Yeah okay, time to get serious.

It appears that an 18 year old arse planted the bomb, at least that’s who has been arrested for it. He is apparently a real twat of a teenager, his foster parents have given up on him and yes, he is an immigrant. Is he Muslim? The Mail didn’t say and at this stage I don’t know.

ISIS have claimed the attack as one of theirs but those camel fuckers claim responsibility if you cut yourself shaving. An ISIS claim means nothing any more. So, Muslim extremist or just a nasty little bastard, the coin is still in the air on that one.

The police arrested this teen plonker two weeks earlier but then released him. The Mail is incensed! Why did they not lock him up there and then?

Well, because he hadn’t blown anything up then. Whatever he was arrested for, he was either not guilty or the police didn’t have enough evidence to prosecute. They certainly had no evidence he was planning to bomb a train or they would definitely have held on to him – and searched the house, found the bomb and stopped the attack before it happened.

The police have now raided the house he lived in. Why didn’t they raid it before? Well because they had no evidence on which to base a raid before. That’s how it works here. This is not Nazi Germany.

Do you really want the police to be able to raid homes without having to get a warrant, which requires at least some evidence? Seriously, do you really want a police force with that kind of power? That is going down a very, very dark road.

The Scottish Daily Mail, which doesn’t seem to be online, has a front page headline ‘Internet giants with blood on their hands’ and claims Tessie May will order (yes, order) websites like Google to clamp down on extremists. That is, they must not let anyone find instructions on how to make one of these bombs or any other form of weaponry online.

Leaving aside the small matter that most of the big Internet search engines are American and not under Tessie’s jurisdiction, ignoring the undernet that the Chinese use to get past their country’s strict controls, pretending that proxy servers don’t exist…

This is the authoritarian Internet censorship that Tessie Maybe has striven for for many years. She loves having a reason to take control of the Internet. Porn and paedos didn’t get her there so it’s no surprise she’s trying again using terrorism.

And once she has the tip of that wedge in, it’s sledgehammer time.

All these new security powers, all these controls, say that terrorism is winning. Terrorism works. We are caving in and giving up all our freedoms to a dictatorship and that is what terrorists want.

It’s also what the control freaks in government – of all rosettes – want and the terrorists are handing it to them.

They are not scaring the government. They know that as long as they don’t blow up anyone rich or important, the response of the authorities will be minimal. So they can go out and be murderous bastards and the government love them for it.

Terrorism gives government the excuse they crave for deeper and harder control over all of us. Police who can kick in your door at dawn with no evidence. An internet so muted that it becomes as much a propaganda machine as the BBC.

And the Daily Mail demands that this all happens.

They are either in on the game or they are unbelievably stupid.

 

 

 

The Mouse that Jingly-Jangled

North Korea is a little country with a population so impressively oppressed that Socialists want it to happen everywhere. They never seem to notice what Socialism, when it takes power, does with its most vocal supporters on its way to power. Lenin was a big name in the Russian revolution. Stalin later had him airbrushed out of photographs – after he was airbrushed out of life. Even the big names get wiped out. You activists become a liability when they win.

Kim Jong Jingly-Jangly is, let’s face it, madder than a bag of badgers. He’s had his own relatives shot for annoying him (actually, we’ve all had moments when we wish we could do that but we’re not bonkers enough to really do it).

So the news that he has tested a hydrogen bomb is no surprise. Well he says he has one, or rather had one, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he got the seismic effect by ordering his entire population to jump up and down in unison.

North Korea’s only ally, and a reluctant one at that, is China. China are getting more and more pissed off at the Beatle-cut fat boy who takes communism to its final conclusion. At least China can tell its people ‘Could be worse, you could be North Korean’.

China has a border with North Korea, and Russia has a short border with the House of Kim too. Neither of them want hordes of refugees crossing their border. They can’t run into South Korea because Kimmy-boy has a hell of a border there and the South Koreans are quite happy for it to remain intact.

Recently, the Kimminator launched three missiles in the general direction of Japan. Two failed in flight and one detonated at launch. Japan, the general population at least, noticed nothing. Sushi preparation continued as normal.

So if the grinning chubby has a hydrogen bomb, it’s not too alarming because his delivery missiles are Socialist shite and don’t work. If they try to launch one and the H-bomb goes off on the launch pad, I for one will laugh hard enough to need incontinence pants. He’s a threat to America? Really? It’s a big target but a lot of it has nobody living in it.

In WWII the Japanese sent balloon bombs to America. A balloon with a bomb attached, which the prevailing winds would carry over America and the bomb dropped randomly when the balloon burst. Hardly anyone in America even noticed. Huge parts of it are forest or desert and there are places where nobody would notice an asteroid strike, so Kimbo’s idea of firing one of his ‘target – that general direction, sort of’ missiles at America is likely to raise no more than heavy sigh from the American people.

Trump, however, will not stand for it. A Democrat government might have said, as a UK Labour government would. ‘It’s okay, it landed in the desert so no big deal’. Trump is not a politician and that makes him something new. The world doesn’t know what to do with him. Kim Jong Jinglebells still thinks he’s dealing with the Obama administration and he’s pushing against what he thinks are easily cowed Americans. Oh dear.

Another thing that is often overlooked is China’s role in all this. There was an incredible tweet where some snowflake said ‘I’m scared that if North Korea nukes us, Trump will take us to war’ with nary a thought to the point that if someone nukes you, they already started the war.

China does not want a nuclear war. China doesn’t want war with the West at all. They’re doing very well financially through trade with us and they don’t want that messed up. Russia doesn’t want a war either. Putin is happy sitting back with popcorn watching us destroy ourselves. He doesn’t need to do a thing.

If Kim Jing Jong Hurdy Gurdy really attacks America, I think that country will be gone before America arrives. China is most likely to annex it and make it part of China. I think Russia would see it as too much bother and would be happy to let China have it.

It would be a hell of an improvement in the lives of most North Koreans if China took it. They’d fight American or Russian invasion but they’d be okay, I think, with Chinese rule.

I hope Trump has the sense to let China deal with it. DPRK would become part of China, South Korea would be Korea, and there would be no need for nukes. Most of the DPRK people would welcome China anyway, it’s a lot better than what they have now and not too far from what they are used to, just less oppressive.

So, the world is pretending to be scared of a mouse of a country led by a muppet with an appetite and no forward thinking. Kim the Hutt cannot win if he starts a fight, he has the three biggest countries staring him down.

If he fires one missile, his country is gone. So the real question is…

How mad is he?
