      They are mad...all mad says:

      British Politicians mention every religious festival under the sun except Christian festivals. I haven’t got a clue why, probably the same as why some councils used to ban Christmas decorations in case they offended Muslims. Which is silly as Muslims are the last people to be offended by other religions holding a festival.

            A couple of decent haircuts for the kids wouldn’t hurt, either.

            As you can see I only ever wear two dark suites or this grey jumper and jeans. All my shirts are brought for the work I do, that is talking in front of the TV camera.

            In showing solidarity with those who have to scrimp on a clothing allowance please send me a new casual outfit.

            I do not qualify for a clothing bank.

      It’s true that sometimes what is not said speaks more than what is said. But I think here the simple message is “Global Warming is real, and here I am with my family proving it”.

      i.e. the likes of Denis Goldberg, Helen Suzman, Arthur Goldreich and Ronnie Kasrils.
      Only when people start to see the J’ewish connection will they start to begin to understand who and what agenda is behind what is happening and that the same modus operandi is being used here in the UK to subvert our nation state.

      Kasrils was even on R4′s Today programme this morning finally conceding the fact that Black rule in SA has been an unmitigated disaster. Too sorry, too late.
