Rest in Peace – Prince Roy of Sealand
“I might die young or old, but I will never die of boredom”

Farewell then Prince Roy of Sealand, leader of the free micro-state based seven miles off of Suffolk coast. The pirate radio guru,  former British Army Major and libertarian poster-boy Paddy Roy Bates has died aged 91. Prince Roy seized Sealand in 1967, and declared it an independent nation in 1975. After various coups and run-ins with the British Navy, Sealand was finally recognised as a nation after the Germans sent a hostage negotiator to the 5,920sq ft former civil war fort after an attempted coup in 1978.

After broadcasting pirate radio across the south-east of England, the principality has latterly made its money out of hosting servers and selling titles to the likes of Neo-Guido, a Baron of the free-land. Prince Roy is succeeded, after a minor power struggle with Princess Joan, by Michael, the new regent and head of state. There could be a challenge though by one Johannes Seiger who is head of the shadow Sealandic Rebel Government, based in Germany, since his father was forced out after the failed coup of ’78.

A major film is in production about the nation’s history, until then Guido will leave you with the motto of this concrete paradise: “E Mare Libertas”

    I had never heard of this person nor place until today, it is a reminder to us all that one person can make a difference ( standing up to the state etc).

    Just one thing tho, did they have diversity officers at Sealand?

    I think that it was probably built by the Royal Engineers.

    Nice to see that when the UK government extended their territorial waters to 12 miles and included Sealand, Roy extended Sealand’s territorial waters by the same amount to include Felixstowe, Harwich and the southern part of Ipswich.

    Then Tower Radio, Radio Essex, Radio Sutch (David Sutch aka Screaming Lord Sutch of the Official Monster Raving Loony Party), Swinging Radio England, Radio 355 (formerly Britain Radio), Radio Invicta, Radio 390 (formerly King Radio) and I think there were even more.

    However … Mitchel [in all seriousness] may well be entitled – and considering the Over The Top [OTT] reaction by the pigs [federation of!!!] – to the ‘pleb’ statement tell them all to “Hillsborough off” ….

    Finally the media are waking up to what I’ve been saying for days now, the BBC had a duty of care to the children on their premises. The BBC could get its arse sued off.

    But I believe there may be a criminal act here as well, that of conspiracy. Did senior BBC management actually cover up Savile’s kiddie fiddling? It’s clear several senior people at the BBC knew of Savile’s taste in young girls, so if they as a group covered it up, isn’t that a crime?

  102. 102
    Expat Geordie says:

    I think that the only person publicly defending Mitchell is Peter Hitchins of the Mail on Sunday. His argument is that Mitchell might or might not be a shit, but the police are abusing their power in this situation.Basically the police regard everyone else as plebs and don’t like it when the boot is on the other foot.

    Letting someone pass through a gate on his bike three times in one day and then refusing a fourth time does seem a bit off. No wonder Mitchell got a bit hacked off.

    Old Bill are calling for his resignation because he called one of them a pleb!!!!!!!!!!
    And the leftie media keep stiring it up (it is a high flying tory after all). Yet when the Deputy Prime Minister of the hypocrite party actually punched a ‘pleb’ on camera there was no demand from the lefties for his removal.

    Does that mean every single cozzer that has ever called someone a bad name has to retire?

    What this shows is how this particular plod can’t stand to be answered back to – and there are plenty like him – if that had been anybody else they would have at the very least been given a streem of verbal abuse by this ‘offended’ muppet, and made to know that if they answerd back they would be then ‘prossesed’.

    Georgeous George says:

    Depends on what you mean by “nobody”. For example Janet Street-Porter and Esther Rantzen have said that they knew in the 70s but as they were nobodies they did not mention anything. Then in the 80s they still knew but they were still nobodies. In the 90s they also knew but as they were still nobodies there was nothing they could do. In the zeroes they still knew but as they were still nobodies there was nothing they could do about it.

    Perhaps if the founder of Childline had known something she could have done something but alas rumours of Savile’s misdeeds never reached her concerned ears.

    Ah, it was one of those Eyes Wide Shut deals
    Nobody noticed this guy copping feels
    No ace newshound caught a whiff of scandal

    If that’s the measure of the BBC
    Why’s Dave too frit to axe the licence fee?

    BBC news chase scandals hither and thither some which even do not exist yet fail to find one on their own doorstep.

    Will they investigate why they failed themselves?

    Savile hated animals, but loved molesting children. All with the help of the BBC, who put him on a show for years where he could come into contact with them.

    Tear down the BBC says:

    HIGNFY was in full, scripted damage limitation mode. First up, claim no-one knew anything except for a few rumours. Completely ignore all the BBC people who have come forward saying they witnessed illegal acts. Then go onto say it’s the nasty newspapers having a go at state institutions, thus continuing the week-long BBC line of mentioning all the other state institutions involved.

    Then Merton pipes up (as he only seems to work for the BBC I wonder if he is PAYE) claiming JS has friends in high places, namely the Blessed Margaret. I really hope someone on Mrs Thatcher’s staff can find some way of suing the little prick Merton for every penny he has.

    In short, we the BBC knew nothing (except for everything we did know), everyone else was as bad as us, it’s all the fault of the nasty newspapers and, of course, Thatcher.

    Definitely no hint of a vast socialist bureaucracy procuring for and protecting one of its chosen favourites.

    This is a chance to have the BBC reformed root and branch. It might also be a definitive litmus test of the nature of Cameron’s true ethos, i.e., whether or not he institutes an independent, judge-led enquiry à la Leveson..

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
