Attorney General Warns Press Over Rebekah & Andy 34,827

These are the top ten traffic stories on the blog this year which helped generate some 30 million page views. The shocking footage of the Woolwich jihadis was seen by more people here than elsewhere because of paywalls andf the ITV website crashing under the strain. We were first with the news of the Rolf Harris arrest and we were first with the news of his house being searched as well. Due to the Leveson Effect we were also first with the news of Jim Davidson’s arrest. We hinted at the Brooks – Coulson Affair, despite the Attorney General’s warning. Sex sells; Serbia’s answer to Kirsty Wark has a different technique when it comes to interviewing Prime Ministers, Claire Perry’s porn issues and Gloria De Piero’s boobs are what our readers really want to know about. Paul the unashamed shirker from Clerkenwell amazed readers more than once this year…

      Oh dear says:

      This worryingly crowded isle: England is officially Europe’s most densely packed country

      – England has overtaken the Netherlands and is second only to tiny Malta

      – Over the next 30 years the gap is expected to widen even more

      – Figures show the huge impact of Labour’s open-door immigration policy

      Population growth is so rapid that four times as many people will soon be crammed in as France and twice as many as Germany.

      England has overtaken the Netherlands to become second only to tiny Malta as the most densely populated nation in the EU.

        Expat Geordie says:

        The Netherlands and Malta, both places that I have visited several times and love. However I can’t for the life of me comprehend the attitude of the locals towards us. They like us. Why is that?

        In Malta we were the colonial power, and when Italy joined WWII the nearest part of Britain that they could attack was Malta, so from day 1 it was bombed to hell, and became the most bombed place on earth until Laos took that dubious honour in the 1960’s. They were bombed because of the British. They were starved because of the British. And yet, with the exception of the late Dom Mintoff, they like us.

        The Dutch like us (it must be a cultural thing – as far as many people are concerned the Dutch are British people with really funny accents and a strange liking for chocolate sprinkles and camping). When I have visited Arnhem, as I have done on several occasions, the locals really like us. Yet if we hadn’t attacked the town there would have been no big battle, their town wouldn’t have been destroyed and there would have been no hunger winter. So why the hell do they like us.

        The Belgians on the other hand don’t really like us all that much, for much the same reasons as the Maltese and Dutch should dislike us. As the Americans would say, go figure.

        Both the Dutch and the Maltese do have immigration problems. The Dutch have a huge múzzíe issue, which they are too liberal to do anything about. The Maltese are getting lots of North Africans sometimes literally washing up on their shores. I doubt that the Maltese will go down the Dutch route though, being rather conservative and very Roman Catholic.

          Cardinal Biggles says:

          My uncle was in the RAF during WWII and on Malta for a fair time – he had a few amusing anecdotes of his time hunkered down thereabouts. Later on, during the push up Italy he told us some stories of flying in Wellingtons and delivering loads of bom*bs down Vesuvius if the weather was too inclement to get to the intended target – just to see if they could stir it into action. I’ve also got his photos of Il Duce and Clara Petacci hanging upside down in Milan.

          A few years ago I holidayed in Laos, a fascinating country. I used to work with a chap who had been captured by the Pathet Lao whilst flying light aircraft out that way, working for some oil company, allegedly – he spent about a year in captivity, moving from place to place before being released. He reckoned it was all dead boring, the highlight of the week being getting his hair trimmed. Anyway, as we flew over the plain of jars to Xiang Khouang the landscape looked like a rather verdant lunar landscape – bom*b craters everywhere! When we wandered around the site there were numerous warnings to not stray from the marked paths as there were still vast numbers of mines in the area.

            The pensioner we have arrested and bailed for stalking
            Handy, is disabled and travels around on an electric wheelchair. We therefore consider him highly dangerous, although he has only seen Handy once in the last 12 months.

          I need some advice as my husband has no political antennae whatsoever. This is what Handy plans for the future.

          Although he has lost the LibeDem whip as an MP, he still sits as a LibDem Councillor in Portsmouth with executive responsibility for planning which he has held for decades. The trouble is Handy does not realise that if we endorse a sexual abuser, molester and pervert to stand (now that the Pascoe report has been leaked), none of us are going to get re-elected. Handy is determined to become Leader so that he can continue his planning rackets for his boys and his masonic buddies with the asylum seekers, He has got us so involved in all his rackets that he says he will take us all down with him if he is not re-elected as a Councillor; the trouble is we will all go down if he is and he will not accept that. What am I to do? Boaz.

    When I lived in London I only saw big issue sellers in the centre of town.
    Oxford st,Kings cross etc
    Now I see not one but THREE of the fuckers here in the wilds of wonny.
    Safe to say none of the three selling the “Beeg Ishoo” were English.

Directors plus if they have worked on similar projects abroad they will only need the minimum of training a very expensive item to an employer.

          Alan Chingachgook says:

          I have found their ‘Big Ishoo’ cry captivating and am also pleased that very few Eastern European sellers have dog assistants. However I have also found that most of the copies are some weeks/months old and have assumed a wholesale distribution scam. I do like my issue to be up to date.


          • Expat Geordie says:

            I’ve stopped buying it. Unless the seller speaks proper English and is identifiably British, I’m not interested. However, British Big Issue sellers are people too. (Struggling with the grammar on that last bit, “to” or “too”?) and when one near us was beaten to death by a bunch of “lads” it didn’t go down too well because the bloke was quite popular.

            (How can it be manslaughter when you attack a man when he is asleep, and then go away, only to come back with a shopping trolley to drop on his head? Murdering little bastards – the jury must have been asleep when the judge explained the difference between murder and manslaughter. And the longest sentence was only two years.)

        Why don’t you do some research on the pathetic Climate change / AGW report that Lord Stern offered up to the Labour Government in 2007 – which was then bought into by Ed Milimarxistand a j’ew for which we are all being ‘forced to’ pay increased taxes for.

        Stern has recently rowed back and created yet another pitiful excuse to promote his busted myths – the man is in denial that he bought into a madoff-style scam.

        The whole Communist thing was a j’ew creation – not by all j’ews but by the Internationale nomad arm of them – who today comprise of many of them and their non due dupes – the zio boys like blair.

          Of course, you are broadly correct, however there are some J’ews, who are labelled as “self haters” by their brethren, who also see their behaviour for what it is.

          Mr Blair, does he, and his champions/funders, read any of this do you think? In my humble view, one group is making a takeover bid for the whole of Europe, and the model is democidal liberal-democracy ;-(

          Note ‘Political Correctness’ (including anti-racism) was a creation of the Frankfurt School in order to undermine outgroups…to further its own group’s agenda.

          Politics. It’s a dirty game, and what goes around tends to come around – eventually.

          Remember, behaviours are largely inherited. what I’m trying to say is that they cannot help the way they behave. It is done unconsciously.


          • Not Blowing Whistles says:

            The self hating, sane, insane and other permutations of 2×4 self projection are irrelevant.

            What is relevant is that !srael is a nuclear armed major gas producer in the middle east, and not really aligned too well with anyone at present.

            In fact their real enemies are now forming in response to this upset to the balance of power over hydrocarbon control.

            That puts them squarely on the meal table, as a koshered course.

            The 2×4’s have for once a right to be very scared, and vengeance will be meted out sooner than many politely suspect.

            If they get in the way of commerce, just nuking those who offer resistance is an option. Look at what happened in !raq.

            As all things come around, one should think again about the war on terror, and which particular terrorists the real powers are fed up with appeasing now.

            When you have both America and Russ!a seeking to contain and exert control, and an indifferent Ch!na and Europe, some bleating sheep in the UK are not going to make any difference.

            That fabled isolation held up as an opaque propagandized shield becomes a very focused mirror of accidental reality.

            Will be an interesting new year for some, perhaps more so for the bone head thug that is holding office in T’el A’viv… ;-)

          “David D’Orton-Gibson, who unsuccessfully stood in the ward last May, topped the poll this time with 675 votes.

          Labour candidate Jo Kennedy came second with 539 votes and former councillor Pat Lewis came third for the Liberal Democrats with 424 votes.

          Another former councillor Claire Smith was the top Independent candidate, coming fourth with 398 votes.

          UKIP received 327 votes, the Green Party 54, Independent Paul Graham 51, the B&P 42 and Independent Pete Woodley 15. ”

          Fifteen vote, eh Pete. A whole 15. That works out at 0.6% of the vote. More people in Redhill and Northbourne believe that Elvis is still alive than believe in you.

    If UKIP are the real people’s party then why have they failed to have any MPs elected in the 15 years or do that they’ve been around? Seems to me that they enjoy coverage which is way out of proportion to their actual support.

    We have no history of electing fringe parties such as this which are organised around a very narrow policy objective, due to our ‘first-past-the-post’ electoral system. They have managed to get Euro MPs elected mainly because of the low turnout such elections attract.

        Clearly you have no problem with income tax and think that everyone should be paying much more. That is possibly on account that you do not pay any. Either you are on benefits or you are employed by the state, in which case we effectively pay your tax for you.

        That being the case, may I invite you to make love and travel. Should you not invite me, then that makes it very simple. If you don’t like what I write, either don’t read it or fuck off.

            So you are a public employee then. Thank you for confirming this by signally avoiding mentioning it. I owe you nothing but your salary is paid by me and others here like me. In typical socialist style you throw it in everyone’s face who pays real taxes i.e. money that they have had to earn without the state paying them.

            This feeling is enforced by your overweening suggestion that you are empowered to speak upon everyone else present, another hallmark of socialism.

            It may not have occurred to you that when I comment here, the last thing I do is concern myself as to whether people will agree with me. If they do, that is great but if they don’t, I will still say what I do because I believe in myself.

            Ronald Reagan once said: Some people go an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference. Marines don’t have that problem. I was never a marine but like them, I do not have that problem either.

            Things you are almost bound to do today have been affected by my work. What is more I do not expect the world to support me just for that, as you appear to do.

            Your extensive ad hominem reveals your own deep insecurity and lack of ability to argue the facts.

            There is no problem with disagreement and I am not shy of using strong language myself but, when people are totally taken up with personalities and ignore content, you have to worry for their sanity.

            Everyone can be wrong, myself included, but if that idiot harping on about popularity and relevance had taken the bother to cast his eye above the title on the other side of the page, where it says Tell Guido What You Know, then he would have seen something which did not accord with his stance.

Allegedly universities are supposed to have some sort of wonder software that will pick up phrases etc(unless properly annotated as references which is allowable) and stop plaguarism although I am not totally 100% convinced that firstly they have such a system and secondly that it works

    Bright Blue will publish a “liberal Conservative manifesto” in April, to ensure there is a “balanced, moderate message” from the Conservatives. This will call for an increase in the minimum wage and a focus on schools, childcare and dementia – issues that matter to the vast majority of people.

    … while totally ignoring the issues that most people have at the top of their priority lists. Let’s consider the chosen subjects :
    Schools – mostly trashed by pushing a warped ‘PC’ Common Purpose agenda.
    Childcare – making sure the abusers lurking within the ‘establishment’ are protected.
    Dementia – ensuring that the majority of our supposed representatives are mentally ill and open to suggestion by their controllers.

    You couldn’t ask for clearer proof that the Conservative party has been infiltrated and is being destroyed from within.

The country will then not be a fairer society but descend into the cesspit that most Labour constituencies are because Labour keep them that way even through the 13 year reign of terror.

  75. 407
    Casual Observer 5 says:

    Farage is playing some very interesting politics over the Syr!an refugee question.

    At first blush this does look like he is playing devil’s advocate over the whole refugee question period, and a confused one given his alleged stance on the Romany problem.

    He is not actually criticizing UK government though, but rather certain serious EU policies.

    In a nutshell:

    i) Not all EU member states are honoring their international commitments to allowing in Syr!an refugee’s. G’ermany has taken in a token 5000 or so, as have a few others, but that seems to be the limit. The overall EU position on this seems to favor seeing the desperate drown in the Med trying to get to !taly, or running the gauntlet in G’reece.

    ii) The Roma problem: Farage has been the strongest voice criticizing the governments where these people continue to be persecuted and discriminated against by their governments. Shipping them to the UK is not a solution, as shipping them around the EU has failed as a broad policy over the past 20 years or so.

    However, the UK perhaps should consider taking in some Syr!an refugee’s, but thanks to the Left’s (and perpetuated under this coalition) moronic immigration policy, public mood is perhaps primed to say: No.

    This is a very odd state of affairs.

    The UK could win easy moral political points over the EU, and do some genuine good in that part of the world if it did take a positive stance.

    However, seeing as Russ!a is essentially controlling that region and process now, perhaps it would be better to question instead how Russ!a is supporting its new obligations.

    This is a question which would be eminently pro-EU though, which is unfortunately why Farage is not asking the question, and the EU trying to still win ground for its Ukraine acquisition is resolutely not going to be asking that question either.

    Still vote UKIP – but thank the EU and mainly the UK left for putting the UK public opinion in a position where the UK now has zero moral lead in meeting its traditional commitments under international law regarding non-EU refugee’s.

    Farage should navigate these waters carefully, as it will be harder to get this very important distinction across. Much harder than defusing the Left’s ‘any question about immigration is rac!st’ meme.

    Vote UKIP.

        The EU has already stated its commitments – but the honoring of those by all member states is somewhat patchy.

      Pretty much agree with everything there CO5. And to be honest I no difference between Farage’s view, and the view of most decent people in this country regarding the Syrian reffo’s. However, we must make sure that they are genuine. Ask anyone from the Oxford area what they thought of the “Kosovan” refugees in 2000 and the reply will be unprintable, as most of the “Kosovans” were actually Albanians. And these Albanians were muslim, misogynistic and criminally inclined.

        Casual Observer 5 says:

        It can be argued that Tony Blair has damaged the UK’s willingness to provide a safe haven for refugee’s, and also damaged its international credibility abroad as being a nation worthy of respect.

        On the Syr!an question – given the number of anti-Syr!an government groups which are operating out of London (and generally pumping a lion share of the anti-Assad propaganda), there could be other security implications for the UK in letting people in which the UK government is not willing to be honest about.


      • 440
        Casual Observer 5 says:

        Oh – the reality of people who are fleeing war zones is that they generally do not give a toss about so called rule of law. Especially if they have been exposed when young.

        That does not excuse the criminals who were allowed to take advantage of the UK asylum system under Blair, and who should be deported.

        A real problem the UK does face is where to house these folk ?

        Given that UK born are essentially priced out of the housing market, and there is not much public housing available, how can folk who literally have nothing (if they are genuine refugee’s) be accommodated when even the locals are having problems finding a place to live ?

        Of course – the latter point is a reflection of poor policy mainly under Labour, including their immigration policy and the baby boom that appears to have given way to now.

      Jesus wept. It makes you wonder what is wrong with us all that we put up with it.

      But we didn’t put up with it. During the last Labour governement this country saw some of the biggest political demonstrations it has ever seen.

      But did Tony Bliar’s government listen? Did it fuck. Instead it just imported yet more people whose votes could be stolen through the post, so it could happily ignore those demanding it change course.

      Labour was a government relying on 50% of its votes from recently imported foreigners who in many cases didn’t even know they were voting. Without them Labour would be finished as a political entity. It is a zombie party living a half-life with a belief in a political system that has failed every time it has been tried.

      The poor deserve better. They deserve a left-wing party that might give them the opportunity to dig themselves out of the gutter, to have a decent life and to be proud of it. But Labour prefers the poor pushed as far in the gutter as possible, then feeds them to the gills with anti-depressants and cheap supermarket alcohol to keep them quiet, just as George Orwell said it would. And why do they do that? Because the zombie party Labour only really wants their votes and the untold JP Morgan riches that come with those votes.

        Expat Geordie says:

        When you look back at our post war prime ministers, I have often been struck by the names of the PM’s who I think did actually give a shit about the poor and the working man, and those who didn’t. Despite their methods being completely different, the two at the top of the list would almost certainly be Atlee and Thatcher (or Thatcher and Atlee – you can’t really split them) closely followed by Major.

        Atlee had worked with the poor in the East End before WWI and Thatcher, the grocers daughter, saw hard work, thrift and education as a way out of poverty. She also saw a prosperous working class as good for Britain and ultimately good for the Conservative Party, whereas Labour sees a downtrodden working class as good for the Labour Party, which is why Atlee is the only Labour PM in this list.

        Major had been brought up in poverty, and knew what it was like to be unemployed, with, to approximately quote him, “too much month at the end of the money”. When I was unemployed after graduation, although I knew that the government’s obsession with the ERM was causing the problems, at least I knew that Major did give a shit about people like me.

        Last two on the list, MacMillan, who had encountered real poverty as an MP in Stockton during the 1930’s, and wanted to prevent it from happening again. And Eden, who was born into wealth and grew up in Bishop Auckland of all places (when he wanted to enter politics he tried to get selected for the safe tory seat of Sedgefield, of all places – later Tony Blair’s safe Labour seat), was brought up a philanthropist mother and caring for the poor was part of the deal. (My grandfather died in the Lady Eden cottage hospital there, which she established and was named after her.)

        None of the others ever gave a shit about the working man or the poor.

    • 437
      FFS says:

      Not well at all, unless we are talking about a handful of Christians. Here’s why:

      1] We rescued the Muzzies from Idi Amin and what has happened since is we got overwhelmed by yet more of them and 25% of those that have come here make it clear they hate Britain and the British. Which is rather rude at the very least.

      2] We are one of the most over-populated countries in the EU, indeed in the world – why are we always first port of call?

      3] We have a population which is now 25% ethnic minority with more certain to come. We reached this state in just over 50 years. If we continue like this the homeland of the British will not be British and our own children won’t have a nation to call home.

      4] Farage is making the mistake of all politicians who forget they are elected to SERVE the people that vote for them, note serve their own interests or the interests of outsiders. He presumes to offer the charity of the British people without even asking the British people if they feel that charity should be offered. Bloody rude I call it.

      5] Siding with one set of immigrants over another undermines the entire anti-immigration argument

      6] I’m married into an immigrant family. Even they admit that by running away from their homeland and not standing to fight they were being self-seeking and leaving their compatriots high and dry.

      7] We have no way of filtering out the bad eggs from any group of refugees. Time and again we have found “asylum seekers” to be nothing more than criminals and terrorists.

      8] The reason why they have problems in Syria and similar countries is because they haven’t reached the level of civilisation of Europe and the West. By importing these backwards peoples we import all their problems and add them to the ones we already have. Just as we have with previous waves of imports.

      9] Because refugees believe in very different things from the majority British we struggle to find a sense of community with them and it becomes increasingly divisive. We hate paying benefits to Muzzie families with 10 kids living in Kensington that look down their nose at us non-believers and think their daughters are too good for our sons even though they’ve never worked a day in their lives.

        Casual Observer 5 says:

        Do some googling on the broader EU hot topic which he is speaking about. G’ermany has already taken some in – but they have drawn the line. Most others in the EU have agreed, but are refusing.

        This is a damning indictment of the state of the Eurozone at present.

        Personally – I do not feel that letting in a bunch of Syr!an’s who are fleeing a war zone is in the best interests of the UK.

        But there is much deeper politic at work.

        I think that Farage is reflecting more a view of the European Freedom and Democracy movement in preparation for the upcoming elections. And expressing what would once be considered a reasoned and sensible view.

        He is trying to appeal to the more compassionate center ground – perhaps more pointedly at Labour’s on the national level, but his rhetoric (still not left wing) is really going down like a lead balloon which demonstrates just how far off the scale UK public opinion has shifted.

        This is not completely cool as it perhaps implies that the UK is at a tipping point of sorts.

        A significant point is that rhetoric which is designed to appeal to compassion appears to fall flat, which is why Farage does come across at first blush a bit of a schmuck with this line.

        This is important as the other parties will try to spin as this being a problem with nasty UKIP’ers next.

        Farage isn’t a schmuck, and UKIP’ers are not inherently nasty, but there are some very deep politics at play here, and somewhat unpleasant.

        This is really all about EU expansion efforts into T’urkey and U’kraine, and the stupidity of importing the R’oma criminal class into the UK in order to free up land for hydrocarbon exploitation.

          I suspect that Farage’s position is being made with regard to the need for UKIP to take a greater amount of Labour support so that he cannot be accused of letting the socialists in, a long-standing criticism of UKIP, which holds some water.

          There is still time for him to pursue this course without having to wrestle with the long term triangulation problems which will inevitably arise. I wish him luck in this and, as you imply, Farage is being rather more than cute here.

          • Casual Observer 5 says:

            The problem of how to deal with this across the Eurozone are perhaps going to be highlighted in the Euro-Parl elections.

            The Freedom and Democracy bods are right to take the lead, as the other groups do not wish to touch this because of the general state of public opinion on this matter across Europe.

            It is sort of political catch-22: If the other groups agree, and try to take the high ground, then they will be creamed for sure at the elections as the F&D parties really need to say no more.

            If they do not, this is golden rhetoric as the F&D parties can then shift from concern about the issue to the real meat which is being able to put forward a credible arguments that parties aligned with the other groups (and the EU itself, in the case of parties like UKIP) are fundamentally uncaring, malevolent and somewhat nasty.

            The nasty smear would be perfect as that should translate well across most of the member states.

            UKIP supporters perhaps should regard this as a test of political maturity. Really, the issue of R’uss!a and T’urkey should be brought to the fore. For T’urkey the argument is simple:

            This country the EU desires to join, but they are singularly not doing enough to help with the Syr!an refugee crisis to the point that the UK’s involvement is being questioned.

            If the UK is smart, it could point to several derelict but serviceable T’urkish Cypriot cities in Northern Cyprus which with a little aid could be made fully serviceable to adequately house maybe half a million refugee’s until the civil war is over. Those cities are at present no man’s land territory, mainly as a result of an problem between the T’urkish government, G’reek government and UN that has been dragging on for about 40 years.

            It should be noted that the EU has singularly failed to resolve or move that situation forward in any positive way despite efforts.


          • FFS says:

            I don’t think Farage has that kind of room to move. It is pretty obvious from the barrage of anti-immigration comments I see on even the BBC website that the moral argument has been lost and “racism” is no longer seen as a sin, but more or less as a badge of indigenous pride.

            Fact is we were lied to. When I was a young lad growing up in the 70s we were told that black people were just the same as us and didn’t really commit a lot of crime – we were just racists that put black people in prison for the smallest excuse. We were told that Muzzies and Seiks would come round to our more advanced way of thinking and would adopt the British way of life.

            Well those were lies to our face and my generation knows it for a fact. We are being murder in our hundreds by the blacks and the Muzzies spit in our faces. We have had a god-awful mess dropped in our laps by the previous generation. The political party that lied to us about the immigrants now relies totally on their votes to have any chance of power.

            UKIP offers the only hope of re-gaining this nation back for its people at the ballot box. It is the only hope that the division that now exists between immigrant and indigene can be papered over peacefully. It is the only way that the democratic process can regain moral authority. If that doesn’t happen, god help us. We may find ourselves in much the same situation as Syria.

          If you think England is a Christian country or not most people ( except for the criminal fraternity) were probably brought up thinking that Christian values, as taught, are probably something to aspire to whether you believe in the Ascension or not and so it does hold us to protecting others in extreme situations even if it is to our disadvantage, that is different to accepting economic migrants.

        Corporal Bill Blogs (retired) says:

        Syria is an absolutely massive country with a relatively small population.

        There is absolutely no need for them to come over here. There is plenty of space over there for them to live if not together then side by side in perfect harmony.

        The country has loads of oil so the people can count themselves lucky they do not have to put up with the green nonsense we have to here .

        if this is the best Nigel Falange can come up with then I am very disappointed.

        I am beginning to think if you turned him upside down a Conservative party membership card would hit the floor.

        He simply is not the man to lead this country to a prosperous future.

        Had it not been for Farage and UKIP anyone talking about immigration would still be classed as a “racist” by Labour and BBC with debate about the issue closed down by the 3 main stream parties who are ALL culpable for the present state of affairs

          But we are still heading for ever decreasing living standards despite despite UKIP Farage, Facebook , Twitter , iPads and Barratt Homes.

          If the BBC and Labour think they can rely on UKIP to fool all of the people all
          of the time then they are in for a shock.

    Guido, how about putting some new material up on your web? We know you’re home in the land where the only snakes there go on two legs, and that you’re probably thinking about losing weight while doing the opposite. Isn’t it time to get back on the job?

        Lou Scannon says:

        Guido, as one who tends to skim just a few of the major ‘papers’ on-line, it’s struck me that they are reporting far less that’s worth reading these days than they were (say) 6 months ago. That suggests to me that the MSM have all now been got at in a major way, regardless of the recent moves towards censorship. Wonder if you agree ?

    Peter Expat has just been round for a drink and a chinwag.

    We established that the only difference between the politics here and back in the UK is that a number of ex-politicians here, including premiers, are in prison for rather longer terms that the softy UK lot.

    Quite right too.

        My wines are generally less than one twentieth of the price of that very fine wine, but they still exceptionally good.

        My exceedingly good fortune is to live at approximately 13° East, at a distance from both north and south of the Alps which is why I frequently traverse them.

        One wonders whom this might benefit if it is as bad as they keep saying.

        Will it benefit labour , who are advocating open borders and closer eu connections, in 2015?

        Or might it benefit the tories who are going to be campaigning for tighter border controls and an eu referendum?

      Sloppy journalism though.

      An iceberg doing what an iceberg does.

      Climate doing what the climate does.

      So how is the West responsible for these when they were happening before there was a West?

      If the Guardian followed their logic through then the West would have to pay for the setting of the Sun and the rising of the moon.

      And why have they got a failed politician and multimillionaire property developer who has been detained at Her Majesty’s pleasure writing about Science?
