So they died in vain then…


Just once in a while I am appalled by the state of the nation – especially in regards to the ignorance and general stupidity of the average Brit. Such an occasion was earlier today when the results of a survey into World War II were published.

The study of 2,000 adults commissioned by TV’s History Channel found that despite 53 per cent claiming to be ‘fairly’ or ‘very’ knowledgeable about the second world war, 36 per cent are unaware Britain’s allies included France and the US.

One in twenty even believe we were on the same side as Germany, Italy and Japan.

More than a third have no idea that the Battle of Britain took place during World War Two, and despite its name, 43 per cent didn’t know it happened in British airspace.

Thirty-two per cent were also unaware Pearl Harbor took place in Hawaii, with one in fifty believing it happened in Britain.

Three in ten had no idea the Blitz was a World War Two event, while 32 per cent didn’t know VE Day marks ‘Victory in Europe’ at the end of war.

But despite being widely recognised as the battle that ended the second world war, more than six in ten couldn’t name 1944 as the year D-Day took place.

Others believe the Battle of the Somme, the Treaty of Versailles and even the sinking of the Titanic were events which took place during the second world war.

Around one in six were also left stumped by the dates of the second world war, which started in 1939 and ended in 1945.

In order to understand the present it is essential to understand the past. I despair at what is being taught to our children these days if they have no knowledge of the events of the 20th century. To suggest that Germany and Britain were on the same side is an act of such appalling ignorance as to beggar belief and to nullify the sacrifices of hundreds of thousands of our forefathers who fought to keep this country free of the tyranny of Nazi Germany and the ruthless dictatorship of Japan.

Of course the cynical amongst us might wonder whether such a propaganda victory and dumbing down of history could in any way be attributed to the political correctness that dictates we must not offend our friends in the EU – those same friends in Berlin that want to screw us for having the audacity to leave their sphere of influence; the Fourth Reich in all but name.

If a deep rumbling is heard across the country tonight, it will be thousands of betrayed soldiers, sailors and airmen turning in their graves.

We should be deeply ashamed…

Destroying our heritage


Frankly, I was a pissed off when a rather stupid Rhodes scholar wanted to tear down a statue of Cecil Rhodes – the man who’d just funded his university education – because he was a racist. For an intelligent ( sorry, well educated not intelligent ) Oxbridge student to come out with such rampant bollocks left me speechless. Speechless is not an easy thing to achieve in my case!

And after the bullshit in the States where the non-whites want to tear down statues of confederate war heroes, we’ve now got the same bollocks over in this country. It’s been suggested that Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson was a white supremacist and therefore Nelson’s Column – a landmark of the Capital city and massive tourist attraction – should be torn down.

So what idiot is proposing this nonsense? Afua Hirsch is a 36-year-old half-British, half- Ghanaian journalist brought up in London who, until this week, scarcely anybody had heard of. Her attention focuses on Nelson’s friendships with West Indian slave traders, and his description of the ideals of abolitionist William Wilberforce as ‘a damnable and cruel doctrine’.

Notably, Nelson treated all his sailors equally – black and white – chastising those who screwed up and commending those who performed their duties well. He was a man of his time. He would undoubtedly have opposed women getting the vote, but this would not make him a misogynist. He hated the French because we were at war with Napoleon not because he was a xenophobe.

Cecil Rhodes was by all accounts an unpleasant man, but he served his country diligently and did his bit for the empire. And let’s not conveniently forget that Britain was the first country to abolish slavery.

These men and their attitudes were of their time. We don’t expect the Japanese or Germans to apologise for their actions in WWII despicable as many of them were. The modern generation were not the ones responsible, and yet idiots like Hirsch think we should be atoning and apologising for the actions of our ancestors.

These people are the real racists. And let’s not forget that racism is only white on black and never the other way around. Personally, I’m proud to be English and refuse to apologise to anyone for what my grandparents did. I object strongly to calls for Rhodes statue to be torn down, Nelson’s column to be demolished and – let’s not forget this one – Waterloo Station to be renamed because it’s offensive to the French.

These things are part of our heritage and are what make Britain British. In New Zealand there are calls for the statue of Captain Cook to be torn down because it offends the indigenous people of that country. And yet in the UK it’s open season on the indigenous peoples whose culture is being eroded on a daily basis.

To those people who espouse such things, I have a simple message : Fuck off and live somewhere else..!

VJ Day


Sometimes, I get a bit pissed off and just have to let off a bit steam. “Shurely not!” I hear you say, but I’m afraid that this is one of those times.

Yesterday was VJ day. 72 years ago Japan surrendered and the second world war came to an end. Why does that piss me off? Well, it’s because nobody noticed. Not a single mention in the media or on TV that I could fine, not even on the Yesterday channel.

The Japanese regarded non Japanese as sub-human. To the Japanese there were three type of humans – male Japanese, female Japanese, and everybody else – who basically don’t count. I worked for them for six years. Luckily my Dad was cremated otherwise he would have turned in his grave. I can honestly say that if I live to 1,000 years old, I will never understand their thought processes.

I shared an office with an anglicised Japanese called Henry (not his real name obviously). He was scared shitless when his boss called him from Japan. He would sit to attention while talking to him on the telephone. I asked him once if his told him to go to the roof and jump off, would he do it? He replied “Of course”. I asked him if he would want to know why. He replied “Not ask unless have good reason”.

He asked me what I would do in the same circumstances. I said “I’ll tell him to fuck off!” Like I said, you’ll never understand them.

It took two atomic bombs to force the surrender. Two. Any other country on Earth would have surrendered after the first one. Not the Japanese. Facing an imminent invasion, they were training children to clamber under tanks with explosives on their backs and detonate them. And this was years before the jihadis thought of the idea. Ahead of their time, or what?

If you want to know why my father always reckoned they should have dropped a few more big ones until they wiped Japan of the face of the planet, then read “1,000 days on the River Kwai” by Col. Cary Owtram OBE, a senior POW commander on the death railway. His memoir was written in secret on scraps of paper and hidden inside bamboo poles until after the war. It’s taken 72 years to get it published because no publisher would touch it.

No, I’m angry about VJ Day being ignored in the interest of political correctness. We don’t want to upset our friends in the east.

But, frankly, if North Korea nuked Tokyo tomorrow then I wouldn’t give a rats arse. It should have happened 72 years ago in my book…

Play the white man…!


Say hello to Anne Marie Morris, the Tory MP for Newton Abbot. Apparently Ms Morris is a racist who has been suspended for the use of unacceptable racist terminology.

So what did she actually say? Well during a discussion on Brexit she used the appalling expression ‘nigger in the woodpile’. Shock! Horror! Not exactly BNP terminology is it or particularly offensive. But this is the 21st century PC where we banned the golliwog on the front of the Robertson jam jar, got rid of the nigger brown paint that my late father-in-law liked to paint his garage with, banned the black and white minstrels and renamed Guy Gibson’s dog in his bio-pic.

It’s bloody nonsense and frankly the so called ‘grown ups’ running this country should be ashamed of themselves for pandering to such nonsense.

I wonder what action they would have taken if Sajid Javid had said that the EU were being unreasonable and should ‘play the white man’? Would that have been unacceptable racist terminology?

No of course it wouldn’t. And why would that be?

Well, quite possibly because he’s not white – and only white people are racists.

To call a spade a spade, I think she’s been sold down the river by a bunch of cretins. There. That’s three racist expressions in the same sentence. Anybody spot them? No – thought not…

PC Pissboiler of the week


Now let’s make this perfectly clear before we start : I condemn all acts which lead to the indiscriminate targeting, killing and maiming of anyone regardless of colour, class, race or religion. As far as the Finsbury Park attack was concerned, Darren Osborne was a total cunt. He was NOT, however, a terrorist.

And that’s the piss boiler. This morning as I was doing the weekly shop with Mrs D, it was announced there would be a one minute silence “in memory of the victims of the Finsbury Park terror attack”.

As muslims were coming out of the mosque, a nutter in a van ploughed into them. Yes, he’s a nutter. Not a terrorist. The Met confirmed after the attack that it was not ‘terror related’ so why are we ramping up the rhetoric to turn this incident into something it isn’t?

Three people wearing fake suicide vests and hacking people to death in Borough Market shouting “Allah ahkbar!” is a terrorist attack. A bloke driving a van into people on Westminster Bridge as part of a jihad is a terrorist attack. The IRA blowing up the Grand Hotel in Brighton was a terrorist attack.

Like Jo Cox’s killer, Derren Osborne was a lone fruitcake, not religiously motivated and not connected to a terrorist group.

So hold your minute’s silence if you want – but don’t try and sell it to me as a terrorist act, because it bloody well wasn’t!
