Keith Vaz Photo Opportunity of the Week

Guido has one more Keith Vaz update to round off his week to forget. The Leicester Mercury love a bit of letters page mockery for their local MP, and they have another classic in today’s edition:

Relating to Keith Vaz and his numerous appearances in the Leicester Mercury, I would like to point out that on Sunday, at about 10am, I will be putting up the Christmas lights at my home and shortly thereafter I will be changing the front wheel on my car.

If Mr Vaz wishes to attend, I will arrange for a photographer to be present.

Sam Baker, Broughton Astley.

    FW de Klerk ended apartheid. He began dismantling apartheid before he released Mandela. FW de Klerk is the hero.

    I was watching a programme about the Cold War last night when it flashed a logo underneath telling us to go to BBC1. Had a 15 second look and then went back to Cold War submarines. I actually thought it very appropriate that the announcement came on when that programme was on, as for those of us who were around at the time and had our heads screwed on remember what was happening and it explains our hostility towards “The Great Man”.

    South Africa had a rather repugnant r@cist system in place called Apartheid (a bit like segregation in the US, or multi-culturism here but not as bad). It was also rich in minerals, the only thing that it didn’t have was oil, and was pro-western. With the exception of Botswana is was surrounded by pro-Soviet Marxist states. South African resources kept the Western economies going, and if the Soviets had managed to get control of South Africa’s resources via it’s proxies the ANC and PAC (which was also anti-white) then the effect on the west would have been devastating.

    South Africa falling to the Soviets could have led to a different outcome to the Cold War, and Mandela was the ideological figurehead of the Soviet proxy organisation that wanted to do this. That is why some of us with a long memory couldn’t have cared less about him – he was our country’s enemy.

    Mandela’s involvement is a myth. He only adopted his Messiah posing when Tutu visited him in prison to tell him that was what the left-wing press in the Western world were building him up as and he needed to play along with it. It was Tutu that continued to press hardest for a peaceful end to apartheid, a peaceful reconciliation after apartheid.

    My preference is to read political autobiographies well after the dust has settled. I enjoyed reading Jock Colville’s enormously, but he had a wonderful subject. I also read Crossman, Healey, Hurd and Margaret Thatcher’s diaries. I got the impression that there was not much ghost writing in any of those. It was interesting to read accounts by those who differed to my political instincts. Invariably, I found they still had something to offer and that helped to partly ease the dislike I felt for them all those years ago.

    The other critical aspect was that they had all experienced life during the war which modern politicians have little idea of other than the remote wars we have, away from our land. It is disturbing to note that those who experienced conflict upon our shores invariably had a better grasp of priorities than the modern equivalents do. No one would willingly wish war upon their own country but it does shape characters in a way that peacetime does not.

    I cannot imagine that I could ever derive any benefit from reading the likes of Blair, Brown, Hain, or for that matter, Cameron, Dorries, Bone, Bercow etc.

    Gove and even Osborne, maybe, due to their particular struggles in office against overwhelming odds. Farage would probably be interesting. But I doubt they would match up to the excitement I obtained from reading Colville, not that he was a politician of course.

    Podiceps says:

    Well, Colville was private secretary to Churchill among other things, and the publication was of his own diaries, so you would expect them to be gripping. I was having to edit lesser stuff, and indeed a lot of this was ghostwritten. But among this dross were some genuine and absorbing memoirs, especially Quintin Hogg/Lord Hailsham, with the famously gruesome first page; and Norman Tebbitt, whose account of flying a Meteor through a hangar when its engine flamed out on takeoff is a classic of cool.

    Indeed. But Colville had a relationship with Churchill that must be unique in modern times, again due to the gravity of the situation. Incidentally, I always thought that diary keeping was not allowed in wartime, service personnel were debarred from it.

    Both Hailsham and Tebbit fall into my original category in that they came from a similar age. Hailsham was a wonderful writer too. It must have helped to make up for your other, less fulfilling, work.

    Did you ever get round to Alan Clarke’s little efforts?

    Standards were far higher than today – people like far-sighted Enoch for example. Is there anyone close to match his intellect among the present rabble?

    If anybody could be compared to Jesus in that saga it was Desmond Tutu. Desmond Tutu was the one that got Reagan and Thatcher to put economic pressure on South Africa. Desmond Tutu was the one that invented the term “Rainbow Nation”. Desmond Tutu headed up the “Truth and Reconciliation Commision” when many blacks wanted outright violent revenge. Tutu got the Nobel Peace prize and many other accolades for his work. Desmond Tutu didn’t kill anyone

    Of course the reason Desmond Tutu worked tirelessy to build the “Rainbow Nation” was because he was a devout Christian. The BBC would prefer to big up the Fidel Castro admiring Mandela. It’s pretty clear why.

    FFS says:

    Mandela was the founder of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the armed wing of the ANC. They planted numerous bombs during the apartheid era and killed many innocent people, including blacks. They were condemned by Tutu’s “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” but of course got off and in most cases the people involved claimed high ranking jobs in post-apartheid South Africa.

    Mandela never appeared to discuss his involvement in organising bombing campaigns in front of the commission.

    Mandela had a lot in common with Gerry Adams and Yasser Arafat, but little in common with Ghandi, Aung san suu Kyi.

    Release him, pin a medal on his chest, promote him, give him his weapon and ask if he wants to go back and do more of the same.

    Still, we will get to hear more about some Johnny foreigner who died at 95.

    The Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation is ditching the Queens Christmas message this year in favour of Mandela the Movie. which will be repeated ad nauseam twice daily throughout 2014 until we are word perfect

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.”
