Pontification

ken_loach_slams_the_government_in_blistering_bafta_speech
What is it about so called ‘celebrities’ that they feel they have the right to talk down to the rest of the world as if they are some kind of degenerate mental pigmies? Why do they feel that they are so damned important and that only they know what is right and everybody else is just plain wrong? It makes me just plain angry…

We saw the latest example at the BAFTAs this week when has been, not very good film luvvie Ken Loach saw fit to proclaim that the “most vulnerable and poorest people are treated by this government with a callous brutality that is disgraceful. It’s a brutality that extends to keeping refugee children out that we promised to help. And that’s a disgrace too” he said.

Well, fuck you Ken because as far as I can recall you’ve not been opening up your unused bedrooms to house them so it’s alright for us to be inundated with with the flotsom and jetsom of the middle east just as long as you don’t have to have them anywhere near you.

And here’s some another gem from Loach : “In that real world it’s getting darker as we know. In the struggle that’s coming between the rich and the powerful, the wealth and the privilege, and the big corporations and the politicians that speak for them, on the one hand, and the rest of us on the other, the film makers know which side they are on.” Certainly do, Ken. You’re one of the rich and the powerful, the wealth and the privilege that’s speaking for us! Does this guy actually realise just how bloody stupid he sounds? I doubt it.

And, of course, arch luvvie Stephen Fry had to join in as well referring to President Trump’s furious description of Meryl Streep as “overrated” after she hit out at him during a Golden Globe speech, Fry said: “One of the greatest actresses of all time — only a blithering idiot would think otherwise — Meryl Streep. I would say underrated if I’m honest.” Well, you’re entitled to your opinion Mr Fry as I am mine. My opinion is that all three of you should stop abusing your platform to spout your political claptrap because, quite frankly, nobody really gives a flying fuck what you think!

And while we’re on the subject of two faced steaming hypocrite celebrities, what happened to all those ‘famous’ people who said they’d leave the country if we voted for Brexit? Still here, aren’t they! Just like all the other steaming hypocrite celebrities the other side of the Atlantic who said they’d leave if Trump became President.

Here’s a thought tho’ – maybe they all left after Brexit and came back after Trump? Just wondering…

Three months later…

A guest post by Quick Draw McGraw…

It’s three months since a majority of the voting British public told the corrupt, anti-democratic, totalitarian EU where it can stick it’s faggoty flag. Most of those in the remain camp have, albeit grudgingly in some cases, accepted that democracy has been done, and that we ARE going to be leaving the EU. Sensible people.

However, there is a fanatical hard core of euro traitors who, through their unshakeable arrogance, refuse to accept the result of the referendum. Not only that, but the likes of Farron, Ashdown, Smith Heseltine and of course, Ken Clarke, have chosen to piss all over democracy and demand a second referendum. Clarke in particular, always one whose arrogance is astounding, has dismissed the referendum as simply ‘advisory’. That’s annoying in itself, but when you take into account the fact that had remain won, Clarke would be the loudest in saying that the referendum was democracy in action and that we should all respect the result, it makes you want to take a sledgehammer to the smug, fat cunts head.

On top of that, we’ve Lords demanding that they and MP’s, most of whom are fanatically pro-EU, should be given the final vote, and I can’t help but wonder how we got into a situation where we have a majority of politicians who only respect democracy when it’s in their favour. When it goes against them, then it’s only ‘advisory’. We have allowed our political class to forget that WE are the masters and they the servants, and that needs to change.

Despite the fact I don’t trust her, May seems perfectly willing to slap down MP’s who show nothing but contempt for the democratic will of the people. In fact, I’m fairly confident that she won’t allow MP’s to overturn the result of the referendum, simply because they don’t like it.

We had a free and fair vote in which a majority of us decided that the UK’s future would be much better if we were no longer in the EU. People have the right to disagree with the result if they wish. What they DO NOT have the right to do, is stamp their feet, spit their dummies out, insult those of us who voted to leave and hold numerous infantile protests, in which a procession of knobheads storm through our cities, holding up dipshit signs that read; “We Miss EU”, “We Love EU”, “We Don’t Want To Leave EU”, “Fuck EU”. Ok I made that last one up, but you know what I mean. Once we do finally leave, it will be interesting to see how many of the cretins actually do love the EU, and fuck off to live in an EU country. I’m guessing the number will be in single figures.

The fact is, the UK IS leaving the EU. Remainers can either see it as an exciting opportunity, or they can keep sulking about something they have no control over. Either way, they need to shut the fuck up!

Scottish EU propaganda

ERDF
One thing I noticed about my recent jaunt to Scotland was the proliferation of Fourth Reich propaganda. Every day without fail you’d see loads of signs proclaiming “This project was part funded by the European Union” particularly on road building. I’d say I saw around 50 or 60 during the week I was touring around.

Now I’m not against spending money on Scottish infrastructure. That’s all well and good, but the EU does seem to have a penchant for self promotion and half truths.

What actually happens is that the Scottish government puts up half the money but the money it puts up is heavily bolstered by the English contribution through the Barnett formula. The EU money that it puts up is 50% the money we’ve contributed in the first place that they’ve graciously decided to give us back.

It reeks of SNP hypocrisy that they claim to so hate the English and yet they are happy to take English money via Barnett and via the EU.

The truth is that these projects are 75% funded by the UK taxpayer and 25% by the EU. Wouldn’t it be so much better to fund these things ourselves and for our own government to decide which project the money would be spent on?

And it would save an awful lot of money on road signs too…

Sod off, Obama!

96048614_LONDON_ENGLAND_-_APRIL_21__US_President_Barack_Obama_steps_off_Air_Force_One_upon_arrival_a-large_trans++Nfy3y1bAskprEdfySmFJFX64klESO1XPNJLk73Av_5k
Now let me say right up front that although many people deride Obama, I don’t think he’s been that bad a President as they go. I think he’s been amazingly frustrated by the people around him and stopped from doing many of things he felt strongly about. I’m not an expert on the U S of A but that’s my view as a foreigner.

However, the difference between me and Mr Obama is that I don’t fly half way around the world to tell other people how they should live their lives. It’s none of my business because it’s their country not mine.

So you can imagine how I feel about the man’s visit to the UK this week. Fair enough he says he wanted to wish the Queen a happy 90th birthday in person but he should have bloody well stopped there.

Obama reckons that the EU was formed to ensure peace in Europe after the war. Well that’s bollocks, Mr President. The EU arose from the Red House Agreement when the nazi industrialists realised that the Third Reich was royally fucked and they needed to start planning for the Fourth. The great plan was the EU. After all it worked for Prussia when they took over the much larger Germany, so why shouldn’t it work for Germany taking over Europe? And they were right, because it is working.

The organisation that has brought – comparative – peace to Europe is NATO not the EU so if you’re going to try teach us history, then at least try to get it right. After all, you are supposed to be a major player in NATO so you ought to have a better grasp of the facts, shouldn’t you?

Then Onama goes on to lecture us about staying in the EU. He says that the UK’s voice in european and world affairs would be diminished if we vote to leave. Well, that’s bollocks too, isn’t it? What Obama is really saying is that if we leave the EU then America’s voice in the Europe is diminished because the ‘special relationship’ ensures that America has a puppet PM at the European top table. He doesn’t give a fuck about the UK’s status, he’s just worried about his own country’s status.

I have no problem with a country putting it’s own interests first, but be honest about it and stop trying to bullshit us.

And while we’re at it, let’s not kid ourselves that America would for a single instant be prepared to enter into the sort of political arrangement that is the EU. Good enough for us, not good enough for them. That makes Obama not just a liar but a hypocrite as well.

So here’s my advice to you Mr President : Go home and enjoy the rest of your term in office and keep your nose out of our affairs. We stood alone in 1940 while we were waiting for you to join in the fight against the Germans and we sure as hell can bloody well do it again!!

Avoiding tax

Tax-havens-cartoon
Seems there’s a bit of a hoo hah this week about all those rich people and politicians salting their money away in tax havens around the world – which is interesting because many people consider the City of London as quite a good tax haven. But I digress…

People take their money off shore to avoid paying more tax than they have to. Tax avoidance isn’t illegal and let’s be honest if you had the sort of mney we’re talking about here then you’d be doing the same. And don’t tell me you wouldn’t ‘cos you’d be lying. Tax evasion is illegal, but that’s not what we’re talking about.

They’re all at it – even Cameron’s late dad was at it so Cameron cn get off the moral high ground right now! Companies do it all the time. 98 out of the FTSE100 companies do it. Our high street banks are really good at it. They have 1,649 tax haven companies shared between Barclays, HSBC, RBS and Lloyds. Barclays has 174 companies registered in the Cayman Islands alone.

George Osborne says “We must target tax evasion and off shore tax havens. Everyone must pay their fair share.” He fails to understand that tax evasion is illegal, but using an off shore tax haven isn’t. And he’s the bloody Chancellor! He tries to sound good whilst at the same time failing to recognise that the well known tax havens of the Cayman Islands, Bermuda and the BVI are British Protectorates.

Corbyn is no better. He reckons it’s unfair that there are two sets of rules – one for the rich and one for the rest of us. But that makes him a fool because there is only one set of rules. It’s just that most of are not rich enough for need to use them!

Now the shit has hit the fan because a law firm in Panama – one of the most roguish tax shelters – has leaked a load of documents naming and shaming, amongst others, 12 world leaders who have been stashing their dosh away off shore. In Iceland they’re calling for the PM to resign after it was revealed he shifted millions offshore just before the Icelandic banks collapsed. Oops!

Putin has been accused of salting it away, as has the Chinese president Xi Jinping – and he’s supposed to be a proper communist FFS! And one has to ask how much Assad came by legitimately out of the millions he’s moved out of Syria.

Yes, they’ll all give it lip service to keep the ordinary bloke happy and convince the public they’re really, really outraged by it all, but at the end of the day they’re a bunch of hypocrites because they’re all at it…
