A man of peace


So former IRA commander Martin McGuiness has popped his clogs. Personally, I’m with Norman Tebbitt on this one…

He told ITV’s Good Morning Britain fronted by Piers Morgan : “I’m just pleased that the world is a sweeter and cleaner place now. It’s not merely these creatures [the Brighton bombers] crippled my wife, but they also murdered five of my friends.”

Norman is a neighbour of mine. I see him regularly in Waitrose doing his shopping. I have always been impressed by the forthright way he expresses his views. He talks a lot of sense and says things that others shy away from. He’s an honest and straightforward man.

I confess to my own strong views on the IRA London bombing campaign, having nearly been caught 3 times by the bastards. I used to work in Westminster Bridge Road. I came to work one morning to find my office covered in glass and the window blown out when they bombed the Central Office of Information which backed onto our building. They bombed High Holborn tube station under the office where I used to work. Thankfully I’d moved on by then but some of my friends were a bit shaken by that one!

The clincher for me was the Westminster Tube Station bomb. I used to buy a paper at the station when I got on the train in the morning. Sometimes I’d cut it a bit fine and buy one the other end – at Westminster Tube Station. That morning, I got my paper at my home station. I walked up the steps – right past the bomb – and started across the bridge. About 100 yards across there was an almighty bang as the bomb went off.

If I’d stopped to buy a newspaper that morning, I’d have been killed.

That was enough for me. I got a job out of London at less pay. It was better than being killed or – worse – maimed like Margaret Tebbitt.

I reflect at this stage on the words of Custer when he was minister for Indian affairs. When asked how he reconciled his views on Indians with being a ‘man of peace’, he replied “Ain’t nothing as peaceful as a dead Injun!” I believe McGuinness, man of peace, believed there was nothing as peaceful as a dead protestant.

So that’s why I’m with Norman. The world is a better place this morning…

Avoiding corporation tax


There’s been a lot of hot air spouted this week about tax and the self employed, but what about the big boys? You know, the big corporations who make billions and can afford to pay clever accountants and lawyers the rest of us can’t even dream about instructing…

Here’s a round up of what’s going on – and it’s by no means exhaustive :

Caffe Nero : UK sales £274 million CT nil
Vodafone : UK sales £2.7 billion CT nil
Gap : UK sales £426 million CT nil
Waterstones : UK sales £395 million CT nil
EE : UK sales £6.3 billion CT nil

And there is a whole list of other big companies who pay some CT but nowhere near anything proportionate to their sales or real profits. Companies like Apple, Boots, Starbucks, Vision Express…

The list goes on and on, so maybe it would help defuse the row over the taxation of the self employed if the Chancellor was seen to do something about fairness in taxing the big boys as well as the little man?

Fairness shouldn’t be selective…

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…
