      Did not watch or listen to a minute of it.

      Could not tell who Danny Boyle was if he were to be standing straight in front of me.

      That a Conservative-led coalition can present something so lauded by the institutional left is deeply worrying and only further enforces my feeling that emigration was, for me, a sanity preserving action without parallel.

        I had the weirdest dream yesterday, Doreen Lawrence and Shami Chakrabarti were carrying the Olympic flag. Mind you, I was on some pretty strong shit last night.

          (I’m not sure whether you’re joking about Láwrence and Chákrbarti, or being serious.. it’s so nuts it can’t be true, but so PC it just might be..)

          • Roscoe Rules says:

            For balance they should have had the mothers of bl*ck on white murder victims carrying the Olympic flag as well.
            That flag would have had to have been substantially bigger to fit them all round it.

            Strictly speaking they morphed from the National Council for Civil Liberties – an organisation infested by the likes of Harriet Harman and Patricia Hewitt in the 1970′s and who openly campaigned for paedo sex. You can understand why they might wish to rebrand.

      I recorded it and watched it yesterday.

      It was a pile of shit, albeit with perhaps the odd slightly entertaining bit e.g. Bond.

      A re-writing of history designed to eradicate the bulk of our formative experiences and substitute multi-culti trash with white people in general and the English in particular being written out as much as they thought they could get away with.

        The irony is that everything they were trying to celebrate – Industrial Revolution,cricket,green and pleasant land sense of humour, literature, music (with the exception of “My Boy Lollipop”), Dizzee Rascal (ffs) and Tine Tempah), suffragettes, trade unions, NHS, CND etc . They were all created and defined by whitey. The history of Britain for the greater part, has been made by the white man… And they hate us for it!

      Guardian and BBC says:

      Well, obviously. And we were ready to pounce.

      Also had it been about patriotism instead of multiculturalism then we would have attacked it as old-fashioned. The exact same event would then no longer be described as dazzling and vibrant but rather old-fashioned and a let down.

      Time for a knighthood for Danny Boyle. On such a world stage to be brave enough to attack the conservative party and its supporters needs an honour.

      English Liberation Front says:

      Absolutely. You understand the new regime very well.

      “Liberating tolerance, then, would mean intolerance against movements from the Right and toleration of movements from the Left. As to the scope of this tolerance and intolerance: … it would extend to the stage of action as well as of discussion and propaganda, of deed as well as of word.”

      “The whole post-fascist period is one of clear and present danger. Consequently, true pacification requires the withdrawal of tolerance before the deed, at the stage of communication in word, print, and picture. Such extreme suspension of the right of free speech and free assembly is indeed justified only if the whole of society is in extreme danger. I maintain that our society is in such an emergency situation, and that it has become the normal state of affairs.”

      From ‘Repressive Tolerance’ by Herbert Marcuse 1965.

      What has happened is not accidental. It represents the accumulation of nearly fifty years of subversive work by the Left to bring about cultural revolution in Britain.

    Watched the olympic opening last night and the reaction online is quite depressing.

    I think it’s probably all over. Many on here are patriots but we have no-one to represent us or stand up for the England we love.

    There are now so many indigenous people who believe that mass immigration is a good thing and that to have their homeland stolen from them is modern and exciting.

    All societies die eventually. And ours is doing so I fear. At least we had our glory days that will live in the history books long after Kevin Maguire, Stan Collymore, Sally Bercow, the fucking NHS, BBC, multiculturalism, Harperson’s “Equality” Act, Obama worship etc is all just a bad memory.

    There have been dark ages before and we are entering one now. The ancient Athenians died. The Romans died. And now the English too.

    But we can remain proud of the achievements over the centuries, we lasted longer than most.

    If only we had listened to Enoch Powell. Just imagine how great this nation would have been with no EU and no immigration. What a waste, a sad waste.

      If you think that this is bad in five years time it will be a whole lot worse, in ten years time it will be unbeliveable, in 15 years time this will be a sort of distant memory that will seem torrable by comparison, in 20 years time, if you could see footage of it now, you wouldn’t belive your eyes and so on.

      Because that’s how it has been going back for the last twenty or thirty, or fourty years

      It is incremental and there is (almost) no stopping it, it is the new world order.

      I can’t agree with your comment about Enoch Powell. He made it impossible to have a reasoned debate about the rights and wrongs/benefits and burdens of mass immigration for forty years. He could not have caused more collateral damage had he wished to do so.In later years he must have realised it.

      Some people are like that.Scargill was another. No-one could have deliberately finished his union and his industry the way he managed.

          Quite so. He was the index case for the decades of ‘no platform’ criminalisation of anybody who dare question what the fuck is happening immigration-wise.

          It might make Danny Boyle and the bedwetters feel all fuzzy inside having Dizzy Rascal being treated on-screen like a long-lost child by the few remaining natives in East London but the reality is that they don’t have to live there. Jesus Christ, even the mock-up pre-industrialisation British countryside had to have bl*ack peasants and farmers ‘working’ the fields. And there they were again in England’s dark satanic mills at a time when I doubt there were more than a few hundred bl*ack folk in the entire fucking country.

          • The problem is that people will cast both of us as racists, completely missing the point.

            You praised the workers in Gabon yesterday, just as I praised Philip Efiong. We both judge people by how they behave – not skin colour.

            The last thing we want is our history adulterated just to make some champagne swilling socialist have a warm feeling. They could just as easily by pissing themselves.

        It would have made no difference what language Powell used, the Political/Business establishment didn’t want any discussion on their enforced policy of mass immigration.

        And guess what, 40 years later they still don’t.

        • 95
          jgm2 says:

          That’s the truth of it. Back in 1968 I believe it was still legal to have ‘No Bl*acks, No Ir*ish’ signs up if you were renting rooms so it must have come as something of a surprise to Enoch to have his relatively mild and scholarly misgivings about the long-term ‘benefits’ of mass visible immigration jumped on quite so heavily.

          Some might suspect it was opportunistic thrashing of a political rival. From his own side. Whatever it was it certainly stopped any politician publicly questioning what the fuck was happening for the next 40+ years.

          Quite the opposite. They all seem to be in some kind of race to be even more accommodating and ‘anti-racist’ than the next guy for fear of being the next Enoch. Culminating in the splendid legislation we have today where folk can lose their jobs or be beggared by the courts or banged up for months for expressing any kind of opinion that any bl*ck person might choose to interpret as ‘racist’. We laugh at the concept that some European countries will jail you for the ‘crime’ of ‘holocaust denial’ yet any throw-away comment in the UK could just as easily get you a criminal record and/or a jail sentence thanks to this political race to the lick the bottom of our ‘enriching’ immigrants.

            The Orrifice of Budgetary Responsibility published last week that immigration should exceed 700,000 per year for fucking ever just to keep this bullshit train on the road. The state is dead – if you can’t fund yourself, may as well go fuck yourself. Local government is almost irrelevant, Westminster a talking shop and the EU just whoring – I can’t see a theory about any of it other than a Keynsian retort to exerting effort at work. To make something of value, to change things for the better but all it seems to be is a lazy, idle, indolent cash cow for hundreds of civil servants, officers, managers yet who just distribute budgets only in their salary alone yet unable to bring to the table anything to fund options, plans – some kind of action. It’s neither lefty or righty to say how government operates at the moment but numbers don’t lie. If people want government in their lives then fuck ‘em. I’d run and run very fast.

        I understand they included several who had to leave America because they fought alongside the forces of the Crown against those who wanted the right to steal indian lands and keep slaves after it had been made illegal in the mother country.

            Quite surprised that they used the Dambusters March during the helicopter sequence as I understand the playing of that to be an EU hate crime, for which the Germans can issue a Eúrópéán Arrest Warrant. Also annoyed that the Beeb cut bits out of said march in the same way that they cut out the name of Guy Gibson’s dog on the rare occasions that they show it.

            Other than that were the Red Arrows involved? Only asking because they were over Bournemouth seafront at 4.30 giving an impromtu display and they do make you proud to be British. Then again, why would we have them in the display – far too male and white.

            So in a desperate attempt to get away from the bloody things today we went down to Lulworth Cove in deepest, whitest Dorset. No bloody chance! A warship in the bay and an bloody Merlin “Eúrócóptér” overhead all day protecting the sailing at Weymouth. The Merlin at £105 million a time is of course so expensive that we can’t afford to send them into combat in case they get hurt.

            You’re lucky, and I hope you remain so.

            Luckier than my Uncle R, whose rectal cancer was misdiagnosed by the NHS (for months) as wind. By the time they twigged what it was, it was too late.

            Or uncle J, whose melanoma was misdiagnosed as a wart. Until it was too late.

            Or myself when, after an emergency operation (which had been delayed 9 days) in a London NHS hospital, resulted in very low blood pressure. The nurses couldn’t work out why. After many hours, one nurse looked at my notes and exclaimed, “oh my God, we’re supposed to have given you a blood transfusion.” (way to go, Charing Cross).

            Or my dad, who was prescribed aspirin by the NHS for 6 weeks, until his back pain was traced (by a private hospital) to two fractured vertebrae.

            Or my aunt P, whose spinal cancer was misdiagnosed by the NHS as lumbago. After a year – by which point it had spread everywhere, including her brain – they finally realised what it was. She was cremated.

            Or my father’s fall that left him in an NHS hospital whose nurses couldn’t be bothered to fetch a bedpan. Nor clear up the resulting mess properly, afterwards. That was left to us, when we visited.

            Way to go, Danny Boyle, for celebrating all of this.

          “I’ve been misunderstood” is to Burley as “I was taken out of context” is to Abbott; we know what they said, and depending on one’s political inclinations, one agrees, or not. Then someone upstairs tells them “Bad form, old chap/my lass, you’ll have to walk back those statements a bit with the obligatory ‘didn’t mean it how it sounded’ old wheeze!” Then they come out with the “sorry if anyone was offended” nonsense. (FFS Romney practically retired the trophy for 2012 for insincere apologies until Burley came along.) It’s all Kabuki theatre and we all know it, but we like playing along with the game. “Someone may have received the wrong impression when I called (Diane Abbott a ‘silly cow’/Aidan Burley a ‘stupid ass’) that I somehow meant to demean cattle/donkeys– that thought was the furthest from my mind, and I apologise to those animals for the comparison.” THAT’S the kind of follow-up we’d like to see someday, but in the meantime, the “Here’s what I REALLY meant (i.e., some fairly reasonable construction of the words, less offensive)” will continue, along with the nudge-nudge, wink-wink we’ve all come to expect– well, they would say that, wouldn’t they? Of course, we couldn’t possibly comment.

      BBC coverage of the Olympics absolutely dire. They should be ashamed. Not as good as previous years with smaller budget and less technology. Poorly informed juniors commentating, bad technical mishaps and talking over the things we wanted to hear. Almost as bad as their coverage of the jubilee. Really awful teeny-weeny pc celeb commentators, daft old duffers who can’t even read numbers correctly, and so called anchormen who have no in depth knowledge of sport. The BBC are not worth the licence fee and their incompetency has actually really put me off watching something I had previously been looking forward to. Someone screwed up badly.

      Please oh please Mr. Cameron put the BBC to the sword. They should never be trusted with anything of this kind again unless some root and branch reform is done.

      I would like to apologise in advance to all the flag waving muppets who think that the greatest tax give away on earth , will be anything but a farce
      Team GB had decided in advance that some bloke called Cavendish would just have to turn up and ride his bike , and everybody else would move out of the way so he could collect his medal with minimum effort , they even decided (team order)that Bradley Wiggins should take a back seat as he had just won a medal and he would have to wait till it was his turn again
      What they failed to do was inform a 38 year old Kazakhstan Borat to move aside and let the Brits through , or slow down so they can catch up
      They should be expelled from the games without delay for not playing the game

    Barclays is being investigated by the Financial Services Authority over whether it disclosed in a comprehensive and timely fashion all the fees it paid to advisors when raising more than £5bn of emergency capital from middle eastern investors at the end of 2008.

    The BBC (and FSA) really can’t let go of the fact that Barclays managed to weather Brown’s financial clusterfuck without having to go begging to the UK taxpayer.

    HBOS and RBS and Lloyds were deliberately hung out to dry in order to divert the blame to the banks instead of the Maximum Imbecile where it belongs. If the Imbecile could have somehow hooked Barclays (as he was no doubt manouvering to do) then he’d be able to claim that the entire British banking system ‘over-stretched’ itself and needed UK taxpayer support. Look at how much behind the scenes arm-twisting was required to get Lloyds to tie itself to HBOS so that it too could ‘fail’.

    One day the true tale of how the UK banks were deliberately hung out to dry in an effort to divert blame away from Brown will emerge. Probably sixty years from now when the government papers are released.

    Cry baby Cavendish whinging because the rest of the cyclists wouldn’t facilitate his blistering sprint finish – did he not consider that THEY OR THEIR TEAMMATES MIGHT WANT TO WIN THEMSELVES. The british tactics were well-known and obvious – they COULD still have won by being nearer the front and JOINING the breakaway when it happened rather than staying with the pack – they would then not had to rely on the pack catching the breakaway group. BAD TACTICS, BAD PLANNING, NO BACK-UP PLAN.

    How strange that the winner and his mate with b*gger all sponsorship in comparison to our lot managed to tactically outwit our ‘superstars’.

    Murray’s knocked out by two unknowns – brilliant.
    Adlington 8th fastest in heats for final

    Overpaid, overhyped, overcoached, brain-dead and pampered beyond belief. Time to get back to British athletes having to STRUGGLE to make ends meet, STRUGGLE to achieve and STRUGGLE to succeed that way, only those who are truly likely to win will stay the course.

      Simple explanation: Prezza is always ordering pad thai via e-mail from some takeaway joint that delivers. Of course, he can’t be arsed to actually go and buy it himself in person, as someone with a mobile will take a picture of him doing so and he’ll be given stick for it. That’s all he has to say– the advert placement cookie thingies, or however it’s done, on his computer see “Thai” and respond accordingly.
      You laugh, but when I’m on order-order.com, I have occasionally seen adverts asking me if I’m interested in studying to become a “minister,” as in vicar. I don’t go to any religious websites, so some algorithm in the program(me) counts how many times that word app*ears on the sites I DO frequent, but fails to differentiate the meaning. (I get all kinds of adverts for cock-eyed investment advice as a result of going to financial sites as well!)

    Where Did You Get That Debt?

    ♯♫♪

    Where did you get that debt?
    Where did you lose that pile?
    Gordon was a knotted one
    Devoid of any style
    I wish that I had less of it
    He should have seen the vet!
    Wherever I go they shout
    Hello, where did you get that debt?

    Now how I came to get this debt
    Is strange but isn’t funny
    Labour came to power and took
    My property and money
    When the tax demand was opened
    It told me gross and net
    If I wants to breath the air at all
    I must also have the debt

    ♯♫♪

    Where did you get that debt?
    Where did you lose your shirt?
    Tony was a vicious one
    Hypocrisy and dirt
    Wish he’d never seen the light of day
    Of that I know I’d bet
    Wherever I go they shout
    Hello, where did you get that debt?

    When I go to the Olympics
    In the summer season
    Someone’s is sure to shout at me
    Without the slightest reason
    When I go to the aquatics
    Half the seats are free
    And lefty non-comedians
    Who are sure to shout at me

    ♯♫♪

    Where did you get that debt?
    Your car’s a heap of rust!
    Gordon was an evil one
    Abolished boom and bust
    I wish I’d had the boom bit
    And he, we’d never met
    Wherever I go they shout
    Hello, where did you get that debt?

    When my friend Sebastian Coe
    Had his last birthday party
    I was amongst the guests there,
    Who were welcomed true and hearty.
    The Prince of Wales was also there,
    And it filled my heart with glee,
    When Seb told me the prince
    Would like to have a word with me,

    ♯♫♪

    Where did you get that debt?
    You’ve really been too bold
    They have sold our lovely country
    And thrown away the Gold
    We’ll pay for this for ninety years
    If it’s sunny or it’s wet
    Hello, hello, hello,
    Hello, where did you get that debt?

        Providing it was the placement of the male organ in the female place nature provided for it, – then fine!

        The proctologists have all the dirty stuff of shit stained exudates from bum boys.

      This is called projection. But it is not a very interesting example, so you can get off the couch and fuck off.

    mmmm I sometimes wonder about the timing of these things, while Uk enjoys its sporting time in the global spotlight , the Eurozone and European central banks along with the BOE will be doing their monthly briefings , for nearly 23 months the EU has delayed , put off doing much about anything as regards the huge debts contained within the EU and eurozone . It has not cut EU spending spending (indeed its just got a 2.8% increase ) , it is not sure if Greece has done sufficient to pass next tranche of bailout and Spain is thought to be around 350bn euros for the part bailout and 650bn for the full one .
    So Mr Draghi starts off the rabbit chase with nice round of euro will not fail and everything will be done to support it and remedy is more europe , euro rallies slightly , now we have briefed that some more phonecalls have taken place and Mr Draghi is considering large scale bond purchases , Mr Junkers also chips in with a do everything we can to save euro , and euro /markets rally . Well Mr Draghi now believes he can present the final kitchen effort .

    Now I guess by this time having had the PMs veto ensure that those countries who wanted EU institutions different to eurozone ones will have caused a bit of a problem , Quite how Mr Junker will underwrite Mr Draghis bond buying is perhaps the question to ponder , for Mr Junker has to explain how much bad debt he is going to underwrite even though it is disguised as lending to the Mr Draghi , Mr Draghi in turn has to explain if he takes on too much bad debt , if the euro becomes technically worthless . The interesting aspect it would seem to me of this new direction is if Mr Junkers buys bonds direct as well as lending Mr Drahgi the money to do the same , thereby stuffing the european central bank with a load of debt , yet enabling the euro to not sink as much , because balance sheet appears correct .

    Mr Draghi is a clever man , went to same colledge as Stiglitz , he perhaps would like the imperative of euro bonds as security , but he no doubt is facing the long predicted slow down , which is affecting the Franco german core . He does not have the fiscal union and banking legislation so either , we have speech outlining rapid implimenation of Fiscal and banking Union or Mr Draghi and Mr Junkers are going to be on modest bond purchase scheme, I say modest as clearly he cannot go big as we then start talking about figures of over 1trn euros (it is thought 2.5 trn euros is ultimate the scale last figs i saw if such things are reliable )
    some think a haircut is in the package as well on the back of the 2.8% contribution increase

    As ever we have got excited before , so is this the week ? As ever with Mr Draghi and Mr Junkers the latin in cauda venenum seems the only bit you need to know . Delay is only incidis in Scyllam cupiens vitare Charybdim .
    still lets wait and see , if its all talk and no trousers yet again .

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
