Boris and Rachel Lobbying Evgeny for Sarah Sands

Boris was in the London Evening Standard’s office on Wednesday to meet Evgeny “Louche” Lebedev and lobbied quite hard for Sarah Sands to get the vacant editor’s desk. His sister Rachel was tweeting yesterday, too:

        Apparently 8% of men in the area occupied by the Mongol Empire are direct descendants of Ghengis Khan. I think Boris is going for a similar approach in the London area.

          I must admit that Politicians who are specialist actors and Hacks who are like politicians are Scum. Hacks should hold the Political elite to account by letting the electorate know how degenerate and uncover their hypocrisy, not keep the dirt to control Policy or threaten the democratic process by blackmailing the Homesexual, the Drunk, and Drug takers fraudster Political class.

So the electromagnetic radiation from the original broadcast has travelled 36 light-years from Earth and will have been detectable in the planetary systems, if any, of at least 50 stars. I wonder WTF the scientists there make of this, any more than Muffin the Mule or Coronation Street. What sort of picture of life here are they assembling? Will they puzzle over the singer’s lips being out of synch with the soundtrack, or the middle-aged types in evening wear on the dance-floor?

        No wonder we’ve had no credible visits from UFOs. This is the one positive thing you can say about the BBC: the politically-correct shite they spew out, all day long, from every orifice, is keeping the aliens at bay.

        Trouble is we won’t reclaim our country.

        It’s gone beyond the point of no return.

        Politicians and pressure groups have engineered this. They have given Isalmists a special status. They are to all intents and purposes above the law. They are outbreeding the native population in places like Luton and we will soon see Sharia ghettos that we will be forced to tolerate in the interests of keeping the peace. There will be police no-go areas and the Muslim ‘communities’ will be allowed to ‘police’ themselves – i.e. Sharia by the back door.

        This will be repeated in Birmingham, Bradford, parts of Manchester, parts of London and then will spread outwards.

        There will be no uprising by the natives of this island as we have become to soft, stupid and appathetic. The police will be on the side of the politicians, who are on the side of the Islamists.

        In a nutshell, this country is fucked.

        Short of a coup by the military, Britain as we knew it will be but a memory by 2050.

          Actually I think it WILL lead to civil strife, and not too distant either. Of course the civil authorities will side with the M*sl*ms, but the police have’nt the recources to protect every mosque adequately, and it will only take a couple of burnt mosques to spark communal riots, probably of an enduring nature. The BBC will of course try to hide all news items of civil disorder; but the British public has already decided that UK society would be much improved with fewer , much fewer, M*sl*ms.

            Any mosque burnings will only result in more protection for the Islamists.

            Think it through. “See how persecuted we are? Something must be done to protect us etc.”.

            There will no doubt be the odd but of ‘civil strife’ caused by pissed up skinheads and so on but there will be no organised resistance.

            There are just too many of them here. Second and third generation. We can’t send them back to the lands of their forefathers without inviting the opprobrium of the ‘civilized’ world. However that would be a price some of us would gladly pay to get our country back.

            The white British are now too lazy and complacent and unaware of what is happening around them (except for those unfortunate to still live in the multi-culti hell holes like Luton). They are like the proverbial frog, being boiled so slowly that it doesn’t notice anything is wrong until it is too late to jump out of the pot.

        It’s must be a registered disability which allows the Beeb to claim they’re being ‘inclusive’ or somesuch.

        It is the single most off-putting voice on TV. And there’s plenty to choose from. Ken Livingstone for example. But with Peston I simply cannot get beyond his weird highs, lows, random pauses, screeches and other errr… idiosyncrasies to begin to bother listening to what the fuck he’s actually saying.

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
