Are these really the best we have?

Politics. I don’t hate it. It’s a necessary evil.

Politicians. Why are they all clearly self-absorbed retards?

Look at the state of it all. Here we have a general election looming and what do we get? Gina Miller and Richard Branson openly trying to buy votes to get the result they want and nobody so much as raises an eyebrow. Even in those backwater shitholes, they at least try to hide the corruption. Here it’s in the newspapers and nothing happens. Nobody gets arrested or even told to watch their step. What the hell happened to integrity? Even Labour used to have some.

‘Labour’. What a joke that party has become. All of them career politicians living off the product of other people’s labour while never doing any themselves. People who work and pay taxes actually vote to be told what to do by people they are paying, and those people live lifestyles the workers who vote for them can only dream of.

‘Conservative’. Hahaha. They are the same, all career politicians who enact laws based on nonsense fed to them by Temperance puritans while their heads remain untarnished by the ravages of thought. Well, they think about money. Mostly how they can get more of ours without having to get their hands dirty in real work of any kind.

Lib Dem and SNP, well hardly worth mentioning. They have become comical in their childish insistence that they are great powers while dwindling rapidly into oblivion.

It doesn’t matter who wins this election. We will be governed by dickheads with no thought beyond getting more cash for themselves no matter who wins. Our choice is simply which colour of rosette our twat masters will wear.

There’s nothing left. Really. Nothing to choose. Place your vote next to Mong #1 or Mong #2, it no longer matters at all. If you’re lucky you can vote for a fish finger, if you’re really lucky you’ll get to vote for Anna Raccoon. Otherwise you’re going to vote for a dickhead. Parties no longer select candidates based on anything more than looks and avarice. That seems to be what voters want too.

Oh I could move to another country but it’s really no different anywhere. Even North Korea is only a logical extension of where every other country is heading. A fat twat with a 60’s bad Beatles haircut who dictates the minutiae of peoples’ lives and punishes dissent with death. Openly and blatantly pointless elections. People in total poverty while the elite live like royalty. That is the true face of the equality agenda.

North Korea is what those who bleat about ‘poverty’ in the West are leading us into. Western ‘poverty’ means you can’t afford Nikes and you shop at Primark instead of Marks and Spencer.

I’ve been poor, as in, no money and severe debt, but I wouldn’t say I was ever in real poverty. I was homeless once but I never had to drink out of muddy puddles. I went a day or so at a time without food but humans can do that. Most of all, I knew it wasn’t going to be permanent. I didn’t grow up with utterly nothing, knowing that was how it was likely to be for my entire life. So I have not experienced real poverty, and neither has anyone in the West – especially those on benefits.

Seriously. You are not in poverty if you are getting money for simply existing. Real poverty is not like that. There are many, many people, all over the world, who would dearly love to be in Western style poverty.

Yet we hear about ‘the poor’ even though, during my time as a janitor, I could have made more cash claiming benefits and sitting on my arse watching Jeremy Kyle and drinking Red Stripe all day. You’d have been paying. I didn’t do it. Instead I paid taxes on my meagre income so others could do it.

Every party on the ballot form will let that continue. Every one.

It’s not because they care. They don’t.  None of them care. It’s because helping the poor gets soundbites while taking away less of the money people actually work for doesn’t get a vote. At least, that’s what they think.

They think that way for the same reason they think hammering smokers, drivers, drinkers of booze and of sugary drinks, those who like a bit of fat and those who just want a quick microwave meal are all good ideas. They think that way because they are told to by the single-issue whiners who tell them how to think.

What we need is a leader who actually thinks, rather than the lazy-minded shits we have now who use the tax money they extort from us to pay cretins to come up with thoughts they can use.

What we need are actual adults in charge, not the schoolyard politics of ‘Oh, I think he’s bad so let’s get him, girls’ that is endemic now. It’s not just the UK. The USA has claims of Russia wanting a right wing government and the left think that makes sense. Barry O’Blimey has interfered in the French election as well as looking very suspiciously connected to the Leftie judges slapping down Donny Trumpton.

Donny isn’t blameless either. He has sacked people for not agreeing with him. Not quite up to the Kim Jong Jingly-Jangly way of silencing dissent but that’s how it starts. He wants a wall across the border too. Everyone wants a wall now. I blame China. They started it.

We have the Tiny Blur threatening a return to politics. Really? How much money can one man spend? Then again, UK dentistry charges on that set of teeth must be astronomical. You could carve names on those teeth and use them as grave markers.

Then there is Brexit. Tessie May has been out whining that all other EU countries are out to get us. Well why don’t we just fuck off out then? It’s what we voted for, it’s what the EU wants, where’s the problem? Oh right, they want us to pay to leave. That’ll be a ‘no’ then and we’ll trade with every other country on earth that isn’t in the EU. It’s not a hard decision, just do it.

So we won’t get any more BMWs or Audis. I drive a Toyota. That doesn’t come from the EU. We won’t be restricted to driving Austin Metros or Leyland Shitheaps.

All the Fords will still be available, and pretty much everything else. A land without Audis might be a good thing anyway, I’m convinced they are all driven by narcissistic morons.

France. Well, the import of frogs’ legs, snails, berets, stripy shirts and strings of onions might fall off but that won’t kill us. We’ll get used to it. Italy? We can make our own pizza and espresso. Spain? Yeah, running in front of bulls, you can keep that one. Germany? Most German lagers are brewed in the UK already and if you make the brewery staff redundant, they know how to set up another one. Sauerkraut, yeah, we’ll manage without that.

Belgium… chocolate. Very nice chocolate, but chocolate has a limited lifespan as a product. It comes from a clone crop and can be eradicated by one disease. Inevitably, one day, chocolate will be gone.

Really Brexit is no big deal for us even if it’s hard Brexit and we just stick up two fingers and walk away. The EU know this. They also know that if we do it that way, a few other countries will say ‘Hey, that was easy’ and do the same. I say we take the lead.

Someone has to. It would mean our leaders acting as grown-ups again. It would be good for us and good for the rest of the world too.

Might shake a few other countries out of their tantrums.

 

Dominoes

No, it’s not about pizza.

Today I was blocked again on Twitter. It’s what the indoctrinated and the one-track-minded would love to do in real life: just silence any alternative viewpoint. Except… it doesn’t silence anyone. It just stops the blocker’s involvement in the conversation.

So I guess the one who blocked me won’t see this. Should I start to care, I’ll be sure to post an update. I’ve given up on these people. They cannot bear to consider any other view and I long ago tired of talking to walls.

His argument was that cattle produce methane, methane causes global warming, so if people eat less beef there’ll be less cattle and thereby save the planet.

I pointed out that if he wants less cattle then he must also restrict all milk products. I mentioned falling dominoes. Twitter’s limitations did not allow me to elaborate the difference between beef and dairy herds and I doubt he’d be interested anyway. Nor would he be interested in hearing about all the other ruminant species out there. I’m blocked now but well, I’m not involved in education any more. The wilfully ignorant are not my problem. He’ll see it one day, when his personal domino falls, but I’m not here to save him. I’m here to save me, and anyone else who will listen.

My background is in intestinal microbiology. My PhD was on the metabolism in the gut of ruminant animals. So yes, I know what I’m talking about here.

I saw the bandwagon of methane reduction when it started. I worked in labs that jumped on that bandwagon. Some actually believed it would make a difference but most saw a good way to keep the department funded. Sadly, that part of science is necessary: experiments don’t pay for themselves. So, many labs run high-profile projects for funding and do the interesting stuff behind the scenes. You only get to hear about the interesting stuff when it finally does something impressive.

The interesting stuff won’t get any funding as speculation, it has to prove itself first. It does that on the back of bandwagon grants.

Methane is trivial as a greenhouse gas. It was long ago shown that water vapour is the major greenhouse effector but you can’t take exhalations and you can’t tax the sun on the ocean. Therefore, carbon dioxide and methane, extraordinarily tiny components of the air, have to be continuously blamed. There’s no money in steam.

If there was that much methane in the air then every time I lit a cigarette, the flare would be visible in Edinburgh. Methane isn’t inert, there are soil bacteria that use if for growth so it does get used up. It isn’t the final end product, it’s part of a cycle. I worked on methane oxidising bacteria as one of those Interesting Things at the back of another project. Didn’t get too far but I did get a paper out of it.

You cannot isolate one single reaction and claim you have the answer to the global ecosystem. It’s a very complex ecosystem. Change one part of it and all the rest will change to adapt to it. Like rabbits or cane toads in Australia – meddle with an ecosystem and all hell can break loose. One change is like toppling that first domino. It’s hard to stop the chain reaction once it starts.

The Green God’s religion does not recognise dominoes. To them, every scientific result is to be taken in isolation and then applied to the entire planet as Gospel. Unquestionable. ‘The science is settled’. Yeah, well, if it’s unquestionable then it’s not science. It’s a cult. They can’t grasp that.

The also can’t grasp that cows are not the only source of methane – in fact they aren’t even the major source. Mud flats, peat bogs, any swamp anywhere is pumping out methane all the time (I spent three years working on bacteria in estuarine mud flats too). And we won’t even start on what happens when a subsea methane clathrate collapses. The ice worms that live in them are cute though.

Cows don’t produce methane. No mammal does, not directly. Bacteria in their guts produce methane and those bacteria are not specific to the gut. They live in swampy ground and anywhere it’s wet and there’s no or very little oxygen. Including deep water. Cows are a small part of the whole ecosystem and yet they are to be wiped out to save the planet? Total extinction will have no measurable effect on methane production at all.

That’s not why they are being wiped out. They are to be removed so we don’t eat meat. There’s a reason for that.

I remember when butter was suddenly deemed a Terrible Thing. Spread butter on your toast and a heart attack was only hours away. It’s been shown to be bollocks now but it persisted for decades. It coincided with the rise of margarine, then the pretend-butter spreads I refer to as plasticine. Butter, it turns out, is healthier than the synthetics but it took a long time to get the truth past the censors.

Doesn’t matter if the cows are to be eradicated. All we’ll have left are the synthetics. Synthetic milk already exists. It’s horrible but it exists.

Sugar is suddenly evil. Well not really suddenly, it’s been sneered at for a long time. That started with the introduction of artificial sweeteners and has become harsher and more desperate recently as people are rejecting the synthetics in favour of actual sugar.

Today’s new product is insect protein. A whole industry is trying to get off the ground. Faced with the choice, would you pick the burger made from beef or the one made from cockroaches? Yeah, it’s not a hard choice.

So it has to be made a hard choice. Push up the price of meat with ‘greenhouse tax’ and ‘fat tax’ and boost the guilt trips and soon the roachburger is all you can afford. The drones fall for it every time.

I have seen Twitter drones insist that Electrofag is designed by the tobacco companies to keep us smoking. I don’t engage in conversation with that level of stupid, it’s so concentrated it might be contagious. There’s no point.

Electrofag is the biggest threat the tobacco companies have ever faced.  I have several and I like them – although I still like the real ones too. Many have switched away from the real ones to Electrofag, and many new ‘smokers’ became new vapers instead. Isn’t that what those who hate tobacco companies wanted? A big dent in their profits?

It’s not what those who live on other people’s earnings want. Tobacco taxes account for an enormous amount of revenue and Electrofag is denting that too. This should give anti-tobacco governments a problem. Their drones will want to cheer on the demise of tobacco but those at the top can’t allow it to happen. What happens to their funding, their very reason for existence, if we all switch to vaping?

Fortunately the drone mind is easy to manipulate. Just tell them it’s another kind of tobacco, tobacco companies sell it, and all vapers turn into smokers. Those are all total lies, none of them ever happened, but the drones need no evidence. They will believe what they are told and block anyone who tries to tell them anything different.

Twitter is perfect for drone control. They’ll block any reasonable voice and end up talking amongst themselves, just reinforcing the indoctrination they’ve been exposed to until the Cult of the Green God is ready to launch its own jihad on we filthy heretics.

It’s not new. Many cults have used the same techniques to produce blindly-believing followers. This one pretends to use science. Its pronouncements come from academics.

I’ve met an awful lot of academics. Some are at genius level, most are merely clever but some make you wonder how they got in there. I can think of two PhD’s I’ve met who made me wonder if the qualification was really worth anything at all.

Yes, there are idiot academics. They make up for their uselessness by fast-talking and sounding convincing. The cunning ones build a following and the really devious get the press on side. It’s hard to sack someone when the press has built them up to hero status.

Personally I avoid any contact with the press. I talked to one once, was totally misrepresented and had phone calls from genuine scientists wondering what the hell I was up to. Now, I have no comment for any reporter anywhere. Read the journal papers, wait for the data to be published. I’m not talking until that’s done. At the moment I work as a consultant for commercial companies so can’t say much of anything anyway.

I’ve never blocked anyone on Twitter and never been blocked for abusive language. I’ve been blocked twice for agreeing with people, once for sympathising, and a few times for trying to tell them the truth. They don’t want the truth, they want their beliefs.

Let them have their beliefs. I work in science. Everything I do can be questioned and sometimes, those questions reveal to me something I’ve missed. I do not silence dissent. I encourage it. It’s a source of new information. I have no time to play with those who believe ‘the science is settled’.

That’s a religion. I do not have time for religion.

Everything happens at once…

Finally, Amazon have dispatched my order of ‘Tales the Hollow Bunnies Tell’. Admittedly it was a large order: all the authors elected to be paid in books so I had to get a load in. I’ll have them Saturday and post them next week.

Smashwords keep asking for amendments to the ebook on their site, before they release it to other sellers. Damn. This hasn’t happened with any of the other books, only the one that was in before the deadline. It’ll get sorted out eventually.

Current projects are a biography of Han Snel, a Dutch painter, by Dirk Vleugels, Longrider’s short story collection ‘Blackjack’ and hopefully a novel that was sent in before Christmas. Margo, if you’re reading, I’ve sent email. I can’t progress that one without your agreement.

As for me, I’ve had the writing urge again. Writing until daylight returns – I shouldn’t do that too often, it’s knackering. Victor’s Will has made a lot of progress this past week. It’ll need heavy editing because there have been long dormant periods between writing sessions.

In May thee are local council elections here. I have taken great delight in putting the pamphlets through the shredder and watching the smug little faces turned into confetti. I’ll have to find the least bad one to vote for.

Then it turns out, I have to do it again in June because Tessie May, the Prime Monster, has called a very short notice general election. Why? Well, here’s the most plausible reason

The end of the likely tortuous Article 50 negotiations is a hard deadline set for March 2019.

Under the Fixed Term Parliaments Act, that’s when the Tories would be starting to prepare for a general election the following year, with what one cabinet minister described as certain “political needs”.

In other words, the government would be exposed to hardball from the EU because ministers would be desperate to avoid accepting anything that would be politically unpopular, or hold the Brexit process up, at the start of a crucial election cycle.

Finalising negotiations with an opponent who knows you’re vulnerable would be a very bad move. The EU could pressurise the UK government into accepting watered-down agreements so they don’t spook the public and risk getting wiped out in an election the following year. Putting the next election a few years behind the end of Brexit gives them a chance to show their policies can work before they go to the polls again.

There’s more to it. Plaid Cymru claim that a lot of Welsh Labour MPs are vulnerable to losing their seats to Plaid. If true, this election would give Labour a right kick in the nads and even if the Tories don’t increase their numbers, having the main opposition party reduced would make things easier for them.

It’s possible. Labour voters in Wales aren’t likely to vote Tory, ever, but they are quite likely to switch to Plaid Cymru.

Tessie isn’t going to go for TV debates. The childish ’empty chair’ gambit has been rolled out by the other parties once more. They really think an empty chair is a major scorecard victory for them. It’s playground politics – but there’s a lot of that about now.

Meanwhile, north of Hadrian’s Wall, little Nicky the Fish claims the SNP are the only party who can stop a hardline Tory government. Well I’m not voting for you, Nicky. Not until your party learns to act like a government rather than a bunch of handwringing nannying fussbuckets. We vote for politicians to run the country, not to tell us how we have to live. We do not become your property when you take office.

This is a big claim for a little woman. The Tory presence in Scotland is minimal already and they are hardly likely to form the next Scottish Assembly. It would be hilarious if they did though. The wailing would be heard in Canberra.

The SNP presence in Wastemonster is similarly trivial. They are not going to be making a big impact there any time soon. No, Fishwife, you won’t be stopping anyone anywhere – except stopping people in Scotland enjoying themselves. It’s what you do best, after all.

Timmy Farron, the Liberal Democrat, also thinks his party is the only one who can stop the Tories. There aren’t many left in Timmy’s gang and there might be even fewer in June.

Tessie has gambled on winning this election and getting a bigger majority. She’s in with a chance but it’s still down to chance. The short timescale will make it harder for the fake votes to build up but it also doesn’t give much time for any party to put their case to the electorate.

I hope she wins it, and comes out with a huge majority. Not because I’m a Tory supporter – I’m a nobody supporter – but because it would be nice to have a government that can actually make a decision for once. And because it would make our stance in Brexit negotiations so much stronger.

Brexit is happening. It can’t be stopped. We need to get a good deal on the way out and a weak government will get shat on by the smarmy bastards in the EU parliament. We need a strong government at this time, no matter who it is, and a government that recognises that the people voted for Brexit and we will damn well have it. No matter what the whiners say.

It’s going to be an entertaining few weeks.

Bombs

Now there’s a title that should boost my stats. Hello, all you secret service people. And hello to all you nutters looking for instructions on how to make bombs. I’m afraid you’re all looking in the wrong place.

The USA has just dropped one hell of a big bomb on an ISIS cave and tunnel system in Afghanistan. This particular bomb is designed to penetrate the ground and explode underneath, in the tunnels.

“What it does is basically suck out all of the oxygen and lights the air on fire,” said Bill Roggio

Well no. If it’s sucked out all the oxygen it can’t set the air afire. Setting the air afire would remove all the oxygen but the order of events is important to us insufferable pedants.

That, however, is the point of it. The blast is huge and will cause a lot of damage but its effects will extend beyond the actual blast area because it’s being funnelled along a system of tunnels. Nobody could outrun it and even if you managed to get into a side room and escape the flames, when the flames pass there’s no oxygen in the tunnel.

It’s very nasty. Being away from the blast centre is a worse way to die than being hit by the blast. The hand-wringers are out in force, as you’d expect, claiming this is an inhuman use of weaponry on ‘innocent people’.

Let’s step back from the emotions for a moment and realise that these ‘innocent people’ have been killing civilians in almost every country on the planet for years now. They don’t target fighting soldiers or politicians. No, they blow up railway stations, fly planes into office buildings and drive trucks into shoppers. They attack people who are no threat to them at all.

And the same hand-wringers always defend their actions.

So now the US has said ‘You want bombs? We’ll show you a fucking bomb’. I fall short of actual applause because it’s still killing people even if they deserve it, but I will not defend ISIS.

It is impossible to reason with zealots of any type, and ISIS are definitely zealots. It’s their way or death, that’s the choice they offer and they will not consider any kind of compromise.

It’s really not an Islam thing. It’s a zealot thing. Our tobacco control, booze control, salt control etc zealots would, if they could, bomb smoking shelters, off-licences and burger bars. They actually went so far as to create a video game where a sniper picked off smokers in the street. That’s just one step from becoming an ASH version of ISIS.

Like ISIS, ASH and other zealots have their supporters who cheer on their zealotry without actually taking part. If those supporters ever thought there would be retaliation and it would be aimed at them, they’d evaporate faster than a fart in a wind tunnel. That is something to consider if you are an ISIS supporter. Trump isn’t pissing about like all the other Western leaders. He’s not going to stop at one big bomb. He’ll go for the support base soon, if he hasn’t already started.

That’s just the way real wars work – where the people you are killing are killing you back. Real war is coming to your home town, wherever you live. You think you’re safe? Read up on your history, about what America did with the Japanese living in America during that war. It is going to happen again, you can bet on it.

So, in the total absence of any kind of compromise with ISIS, there really is no choice but to go all Crocodile Dundee on them. ‘That’s not a bomb. THIS is a bomb’.

Will it stop them? Well, the devastation caused by two nuclear bombs on Japan stopped that war at once, but then the Japanese are an intelligent and reasonable people. ISIS are not.

[One possibility, since Trump has now attacked both ISIS and Assad, is that they might join forces against him and become ASIS. Or Russia might get involved too and form ARSIS. This is what comes from trying to have a serious discussion with CStM…]

ISIS are convinced they are chosen by God and that everything they do is in the service of that God.

Really?

Nah.

They are a bunch of raving lunatics who use a particular sky pixie as an excuse to exert control over everyone else, and to excuse a campaign of carnage and death. No different to the Nazis. No different at all.

Like the Nazis, their footsoldiers come in (generally) three kinds. Mugs who believe the shit they have been told, those who don’t believe it but are just along for the violence, and those who don’t believe it but are too scared to disobey. Disobedience means death.

ISIS have killed members of their own gang, even high ranking ones, for smoking and for other trivial ‘offences’. If they are smoking then obviously they don’t believe the crap. They are just along for the violence. Those too scared to disobey will stay right in line.

ISIS, like the Nazi leadership, don’t care which sort of footsoldier you are, as long as you do as you are told. Like the Nazis, it’s an ideology and you can’t reason with an ideology.

So was Trump right to let loose the big bomb? I’m actually surprised (and somewhat relieved) he hasn’t gone for nuclear. That would be a quick finish – or would it? ISIS is all over the Middle East so he’d have to nuke it all. That would send fallout over Russia at least and probably China too. They won’t like that one bit. So then he’d have to deal with retaliation from Russia and China… No, nuclear would not be a good option.

I think he was right. ISIS will never sit at a negotiation table. They will never have peace talks and they will never surrender as long as they can cheer on a truck driver who kills a few pedestrians to atone for his life of drugs and debauchery and finally get into Heaven.

If you believe Allah welcomes you into Heaven for doing that, then Allah isn’t who you think he is and Heaven ain’t where you’re going.

I’ve said many times that Muslims are being set up to fall. They will not see it, so confident are they that their God will protect them. Yeah, like the way God protected the Jews in Nazi Germany, or Allah protected the Muslims in Spain during the Inquisition. You’re the next for rounding up, Muslims, and they won’t just come for the violent ones because nobody can tell who they are.

This is not a threat, as some Lefties will declare. I’m not rounding up anyone. It’s a warning. I don’t predict the future nor do I make it happen. I analyse and work out what is likely to happen next. It’s scientific training. It’s what I do. Many others do it too, I’m just the oaf who can’t keep it to himself.

ISIS were created by the West. Al-Qaeda were too. They were set up to paint Islam in a bad light because the Western leaders want to use you and then erase you. Not the shoppers or office workers or people on trains or buses. They are not your enemies. They are the ones those leaders want you to kill so they can keep their own people in fear, control them utterly and take away all chance of them ever rebelling.

You, Islam, are a tool of the West now. That’s why they defend you when you act like dicks. That’s why they give you special treatment – although that has started to end, have you noticed yet? Your work is nearly done and like any other tool no longer required, a tool so well used it’s just dangerous to leave lying around, it’s almost time to dispose of you.

Don’t look to Allah, look to history. Find one single example where anyone’s God ever stepped in to save his people from destruction. It has never happened. Billions have died believing they would be saved. None ever were.

I know some Muslims have tried to instigate change. Tried to root out the violent parts of the religion and keep all the good parts. Tried to start a Reformation like Christianity had, all those centuries ago. Keep trying, please, although I fear it might already be too late.

Those ‘leaders’ (we don’t like them either) will not only dispose of Islam, they will dispose of those they have trained to excuse and support the violence. I’m actually impressed by the scope of the indoctrination – many gay supporters of Islam seem to conveniently overlook the gay Arabs thrown off tall buildings to splatter on the ground below. Why? Because they were gay. No other reason.

And yet there are so many gay supporters of Islam. That indoctrination runs very deep.

Feminists support Islam while ignoring Islamic women who cry out for help.

It’s awe-inspiring, the depth of the idiocy out there. Especially among those who think themselves of superior intelligence. I can’t argue with them any more. I’ve heard enough of the abuse they call ‘winning the argument’. It’s like being mocked by a mollusc.

All of them will be gone. All of them. When it’s done,. Hitler’s ghost will sidle up to Pol Pot’s and say ‘You know, we look like rank amateurs now’.

But there will be nobody left to write about the horrors because we’ll be of three types – those who believe what they are told, those who love the violence and those who are too scared to step out of line. It’s already begun.

Oh Islam, you are not the only ones to play this game. There were many before you and there will be more after. In the past it was countries and empires and at best partial control. This time it’s global and total.

You know, Islam could stop the global world government from happening. With a reformation, an end to violence in the name of Allah and a genuinely peaceful religion, Islam could stop the plan in its tracks and win a lot of converts too. Not me, obviously. I’m Ungodly and always will be.

I don’t think they will. I’m not even sure they really want to. I mean, they’ve been promised the whole world and all I’m suggesting is peaceful coexistence. I’m sure a lot of Muslims would like that but I’m equally sure their lefty loony ‘supporters’ don’t want it. They want hate and division, they want a reason to have a violent demonstration in the wrong place about the wrong thing. To them, the place and the thing don’t matter. It’s all about the violence.

Don’t look to Islam. That’s just another religion among many. Sure, it’s the current religion the violent loonies use to excuse their actions but the IRA used Catholicism for the same thing. The Spanish Inquisition used that too, and their tortures were legendary. It’s going to keep happening.

What’s different this time is that the One World lunatics have got hold of it. They are running the show. Not Islam. not Isis, they are just stooges and they don’t know it and won’t believe it if you tell them. So don’t bother.

If there really are any Muslims who want to keep their faith alive against the torrent of abuse that’s coming your way, best of luck. I really hope you make it through. I really do.

A world of different people is good in my view. I don’t want a monoclonal human race like the ‘Diversity’ crowd are aiming for. A world of different beliefs and different thoughts and different opinions is, in evolutionary terms, a world more likely to survive. A monoculture is the fast lane to oblivion.

Islamic Caliphate crazy bastards might want to look into the biological implications of their doctrines.

Your Leftie loonie supporters will only inhibit your chances of survival.

The laws that aren’t

Many people regard the saying ‘the customer is always right’ as if it’s a law. It’s not. It’s company policy at Marks and Spencer. It applies to no other business, anywhere, unless the business chooses to implement it.

I wouldn’t recommend it. It attracts the most arrogant, self-righteous, pompous bastards to your shop where they know they can behave like spoiled brats and be pandered to. It also wrecks staff morale because if the customer is always right, then by extension the staff member they are arguing with is always wrong. High staff turnover and eternal training costs are the natural consequence.

It’s not a law, no matter how many people think it is. Any other shop can tell you to piss off and never return and there is not a damn thing you can do about it.

Via @Dick_Puddlecote on Twitter, it seems there is a non-law that says nonsmokers can’t be sold Electrofags. Oh, some bunch of self-important Public Health arseholes spent a lot of time and taxpayer’s money ‘secret shopping’ in vape shops. Will they sell it to us if we don’t smoke?

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

It’s a vape shop. The only customers who go inside are ones who want to buy an Electrofag. So the shopkeeper doesn’t ask if they already smoke. Indeed, they are not allowed to sell Electrofag as a stop-smoking aid so asking if the customer smokes could be seen as a violation of that rule. They are only required to check the customer is over 18. Electrofag sellers have always done that. There was never any need to force them to do it.

This ridiculous farce is no different to a vegan group secret shopping in a butcher’s and then getting all uppity because the butcher will sell meat to vegans. The butcher will sell meat to anyone who wants it. It’s a meat shop. If you don’t want meat, don’t go in there.

I’ve never been inside a New Look shop. They sell women’s clothes. I don’t want any. Should I go in and buy something then call the newspapers because they sold a bra to a man? It’s really no different to what Public Health have just done.

In all the years I’ve been smoking, I have never once been asked if I’m a smoker or non-smoker when buying baccy. Can we expect ASH and Public Health to raid Tesco and Morrison’s next, because they went in and asked for a pack of cigarettes and the retailer neglected to ask if they smoked? I think the retail response would be ‘if they don’t want to smoke them, why did they want to buy them?’

Every smoker once bought his or her first pack of cigarettes (in my case it was cigars) and every vaper once bought their first Electrofag. So now some people want to skip the smoking part and go straight to Electrofag. Well why not? Would Public Health really prefer them to start on tobacco and then switch to steam?

Honestly. Politicians listen to what these people say, you know. Unquestioningly. It’s seriously time to apply a minimum IQ to anyone wanting to stand for election because we are being led by utter cretins.

As for the medics, well, I have no faith at all in modern medicine. They used to employ intelligent medics but no longer, it seems. Now all you need to become a medic is the ability to absorb indoctrination and to shut down the analytical part of your mind in order to qualify. Where we once had medics, we now have drones. They just think what they are told to think and they diagnose based on personal prejudice rather than medicine.

If only the medics and politicians could see all the parasites stuck to them. ASH serves no purpose beyond being a new Smoker Inquisition. All the lifestyle dictators in the NHS are the reason it’s always short of medical staff and medicines. Get the parasites out, get proper doctors and nurses in, and we’ll have a damn good health service again.

Physicians, heal thyselves.

Now we are told that crisps are evil. Full of deadly things like fat and salt and… acrylamide.

Oh there’s no law on acrylamide content. There are guidelines but not a law. As for crisps, well, is there anyone out there who thinks crisps are health food? They are a snack. A small snack, a fraction of a potato in a bag. There might be a lot of fat and salt and other crap as a proportion of the weight of crisps in a bag, but the total weight really isn’t very much. Diluted by one human body, even a small one, it amounts to bugger all.

This is the same game as ‘there are 600 deadly chemicals in a cigarette’. A typical cigarette contains 0.6g of tobacco. Ignore the fact that most of it is cellulose (it’s made of leaves, I feel I have to point that out considering the level of intelligence we have to deal with in government and medicine these days) and let’s pretend it’s 0.6g of just the deadly chemicals.

Let’s also pretend there is no ash residue and nothing at all comes off as smoke.

That gives us 0.006g of each deadly chemical. The reality is far, far smaller than that. Scared? I’m not. I’m more scared of diesel fumes on a busy street – and I’m not that scared of those either. Okay, that’s partly because I live on a farm at least 11 miles from a town of any size, but I don’t feel the need to cover my face when visiting the town.

I don’t often eat crisps but when I do, I don;t worry about the salt and fat content. I’m not going to worry about acrylamide in crisps because I like the crispy bits on the outside of roast meat. I know there will be many daft sods out there who will be scared. Including every single politician and medic.

The crisp story doesn’t scare me at all because when you change the percentages into real quantities eaten, they amount to… bugger all. Just like the deadly stuff in smoke. Just like the evil thickening agent (no, idiots, it’s NOT antifreeze) that’s food grade and found in yogurts and loads of other things.

Yet again, the news is up in arms over the breaking of a law that isn’t. The idea behind it all, of course, is to make it law. The general zombie population won’t even notice because they already thought it was a law.

And, once vape shops have to check if you’re a smoker before they sell you Electrofag, Tesco will have to check if you’re a smoker before they sell you any tobacco. Having watched how these evil bastards work for decades, their next logical step isn’t hard to work out.

Then you won’t be able to buy drink unless you can prove you’re a drinker… and so on. They can’t stop us so they’ll kill us off by attrition. Nonsmokers will never be able to take up smoking or vaping, nondrinkers will never be able to buy booze. I know, I can feel the shrugs now. If you don’t smoke and/or drink now, why would you?

I’m not talking about you. I’m talking about those currently growing up who might be looking forward to turning 18 so they can try these things. In the future the only way they’ll get to try them will be to buy totally unregulated stuff from criminal gangs.

Won’t happen? Public Health and ASH and the rest of the nannies will tell you it won’t happen.

Like it didn’t happen when heroin and cocaine were made illegal…

Basically, in the future, all your kids are fucked. You think the Righteous care?

They’re doing it on purpose.

Chinese Beard-Burn

My parents are still visiting and I still have a deadline to meet but this one caught my eye.

China has banned Islamic beards and veils in its most Muslim region.

There were many comments on Twitter to the effect of ‘Well, now they are going to have to deal with the backlash from Islamic terrorists’. Because the West’s policy of roll-over appeasement has worked so well, hasn’t it?

I don’t think China will have a problem dealing with terrorists. This is the country that, faced with protesting students, sent in tanks. China tends to deal with such matters quickly and mercilessly.

Islam attacks America, uses planes to kill thousands and the current president tries (and fails) to restrict travel from certain Islamic countries.

Islam attacks Europe and we send aid money and bow to the Caliphate because our leaders are all anencephalic.

Islam attacks Russia and they send fighter planes and bombs.

Islam attacks China… well if there is anyone on the planet who gives not a single shit about world opinion, and who is therefore likely to retaliate by turning the entire Middle East into radioactive glass, it’s China.

So far they are only pissed off enough to ban hair and veils.

Go on, ISIS. Have a go.

 

The Big Day

Well here it is. The Big Day.

Parents are coming to visit and the guest room is all painted and looking quite good, if I say so myself. I do say so myself, if anyone was thinking of asking. There’s a lot of tidying to do tomorrow but there’s no wet paint or varnish anywhere. I haven’t yet put the pelmet back up but that’s not critical. Curtains don’t depend on it any more.

Also, the second Underdog Anthology is assembled and formatted, and covers are made. Author contracts are in.I’m holding off for a few days because there could be a couple more stories to come in. That’s okay, Easter starts on the 14th April (Good Friday) and I need the book available a week before. So it must go to print by the 6th at the latest. That gives a week of leeway on the deadline.

Don’t start writing for this one now. I have to have the last stories in before the 6th for a quick edit and format, and the ones already potentially on the way are all I can handle in that time. Think Halloween, if you’re planning to write a short story.

There was something else. What was it? Oh yeah, Brexit.

Tessie Maybe has finally made the decision. She wrote a note to the boss of the EU along the lines of ‘Oi, Tusky, we’re outta here, innit? Get awa’ tae buggery, ya wee shite.’ It’s a good thing I’m not Prime Monster. I would have written exactly those words.

Still, it is finally happening. Parents are visiting. The book will be out in time for Easter. We are getting out of the EU.

All on the same day.

As this week also includes my son’s birthday and mine, don’t be too surprised if it gets a bit quiet here for a week…
