I’ll lay a wager the same ‘citizens’ could name every member of the Kardashian family.
Last year my toes curled up in my leather walking boots – when a selection of ‘Londoners’ couldn’t name the British Prime Minister, or even recognise and name ‘St. Georges Flag.’ Orf to the bloody Tower with the lot of em, and separate their heads from their bodies – they’re obviously surplus to requirement! Yours_Aye.
The biography by his ex-mistress Marcela Iacub brands him ‘half-man, half-pig’ and says he would have turned the Elysee Palace into a swingers’ club if he had become president.
“Paris has another Paris under herself; a Paris of sewers; which has its streets, its crossings, its squares, its blind alleys, its arteries, and its circulation, which is slime, minus the human form.”(Les Miserables, Jean Valjean; Book II, ch.1) French politics and the Parisian sewers are one and the very same… Yours_Aye.
“Fuzzy-Wuzzy” was the term used by British colonial soldiers for the 19th-century Beja warriors supporting the Sudanese Mahdi in the Mahdist War. The term ‘Fuzzy Wuzzy’ is purely of English origin and is not connected with Arabic. The same classic Kipling prose is part of my heritage, so the Politically Correct who may take offence, can come and kiss my lily white arse.Yours_Aye.
Very Many Thanks to Curtis for mentioning The Light That Failed, a novel by Rudyard Kipling. Which brought back a torrent of fond childhood memories…
Dubbed ‘Britain’s Schindler’, Sir Nicholas Winton MBE saved the lives of 669 Jewish children from the Holocaust during the Second World War. Winton earned himself the label “Britain’s Schindler” for saving the lives of 669 children by sending them from Prague to London by train.
Terror group ‘Jaysh Al-Islam’ battling ISIS in Syria has turned the tables on its enemies by capturing and slaughtering dozens of Islamic State soldiers on camera. Dressed in orange jumpsuits – attire usually worn by ISIS’s victims – the Jaysh Al-Islam soldiers lead 13 shackled jihadis to their deaths. Jaysh Al-Islam calls itself the ‘Army of Islam’ and reportedly commands as many as 25,000 loyal fighters following the merger of around 60 rebel factions inside Syria. Islamic State’s captured soldiers are forced to kneel as a commander announces:“Allah did not make a disease without appointing a new remedy to it!”
Don’t you just love Islamic extremist fashion, and the way it trends so quickly? It would appear that orange is the new black! Yours Aye.
Allow me to whisper into your shell-like ear Dave; “Far more British ‘non muslims’ (Brit Pop: 71% are Christian, 4% are Muslim and 21% have no religious affiliation) find it more offensive when you state the same. They ‘are’ ISIS, ISIL, Islamic State or IS – and no matter what guff you spout, the Islamic State bogeyman will not go away. Start sorting the bloody mess out, or step down and let someone else do it!” Yours Aye.
One man’s flag is their heritage, yet to another, it is a political self serving sign of hatred.Thrown into the mix are spineless politicians – who flip-flop from side to side to keep voters sweet. All the while – the liberal left-wing media kowtow to the high and mighty clown in the White House, in the hope that the next in line will hail from the same dynasty.
And then we have the lowest of the lowest. Lickspittle delusional celebrities, who prostrate themselves and wail out loud in the hope it will extend their popularity with the kowtowing media, and their public. Thus the cycle of insanity is almost complete, we just need to add the thoughts and actions of the mindless 1%, who will burn either flag…
Fortunately, there are many more who do have a solid spine, and make their feelings known through their knowledge of American history.Step forward Allen Westwith five solid reasons.Yours Aye.
Very Many Thanks to BigSkyCountry for the ‘heads up’.
‘By Gad Sirrah!’It has to be said that ‘I’m a lucky sort of chap at times.’ More so than the famous Vice Admiral depicted in the centre of the painting (click pic to enlarge), whose actions took out the Franco-Spanish fleet at the Battle of Trafalgar – 21st October 1805.
The sad misfortune of Vice Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson, has once again proven to be my very good fortune. In as much, that this morning I received a giftedFlagon of Nelson’s Bloodin return for a long – forgotten favour.
Drop by any time old mate, just don’t wait for another five years to pass… Yours Aye.
A five spar gate made from wood – my job as field guardian understood;
Of solid oak and hand-forged steel – stood-fast to block, and never yield;
Long since forgotten over time – now overgrown by thorn and vine;
Yet my job remains, and I’ll stand here – for year, upon year, upon year…
This old oak defender was placed down in Summer 1939 – the same year war was declared against Nazi Germany. At the time mighty Shire horses would have been the labour intensive beasts that used the gate to till the land, until the gate became obsolete through the latter-day use of wider automated agricultural machinery.
The large steel Shire horse shoe was picked up on the other side of the hedgerow, probably cast off during ploughing, as it is worn down to an edge in places – the nail holes have long since oxidised and closed over. Tomorrow’s adventure for Nipper and I, is over that gate and beyond through the 20 acre wood. An early start methinks with breakfast on the hoof! Yours Aye.
And I thought we held the commodity on politically correct snivelling politicians – on top of soppy ‘ad nauseam’ left wingers. How long before book burning becomes common place? UTTERTOSH AND BLOODY POPPYCOCK!BAH!!! Yours Aye.
Daniel Thomas is the ‘Cambrian Dissenters’ Blogger who nails the UK’s problems squarely on the head each and every time. I have yet to find myself disagreeing with any of his articles – in fact I once commented on one of his past articles and asked if we were related? Either that or he’s capable of long distance mind reading! (A talent that would be wasted searching the inner temples of Obama, Biden, and Kerry.)
“I don’t want my daughters to grow up in England” – “I don’t like the UK, it’s becoming more like America” – “I don’t want my children growing up in this society” – “I want to live in Saudi Arabia because I don’t like the UK”
These statements are attributed to thirty three-year old Zorah Dawood who left our green and pleasant land to take up residence with ISIS in Syria along with her two children aged five and eight. She was accompanied by her two sisters Khadija aged thirty and Sugra aged thirty-four along with their combined brood aged three to fifteen.Daniel Thomas: British ISIS Killers Are Radicalised At Home From Birth
Like minded souls will likely agree with his balanced thoughts … Yours Aye.
Cowardly Murdering Barstewards! The ‘Caliphate’ celebrates its first birthday this week, and so confident are they – that they even warned of such worldwide atrocities to celebrate the ‘birth’ of their nation.The British Foreign Officeadvised all British subjects against venturing to Tunisia, and yet such advice was obviously disregarded. Time enough for the civilised world to wake up, and provide a belated present to the ‘Caliphate’ to ensure there will never be a second birthday celebration! But that would require true leadership from powerful nations, which is sadly lacking. BAH! Yours Aye.
