Candidate Pictured With Blacked Up Faces
Owns Website That Describes “Blacking Up” As Sinister


The candidate standing in Rossendale and Darwen worries that in small towns in “Britain struggle to maintain their identity against a tide” and is pictured here with some blacked up faces. A UKIP candidate? No it is Labour’s Will Straw, who defends the local tradition of the Britannia Coconut Dancers, who wear coconuts tied to their hands and knees, whilst performing to celebrate the arrival of spring. Guido does not for one second think Will is racist.

However there is a double standard operating, would Will give others the same treatment in similar circumstances? Take the attitude of the political website LeftFootForward.org (proprietor Will Straw), when the Tory MP Philip Davies said:

“Why it is so offensive to black up your face… I have never understood this.”

LeftFootForward called him “sinister” for saying that there was nothing offensive about “blacking up” concluding “what a sad, pathetic little man Mr Davies is.” How times change…

    EASTER eggs and bunnies were seized at a school at the centre of a takeover plot by Islamic hardliners.

    mother of a pupil alleges *“morality squads” of older boys *confiscated chocolate and toys from younger children. “Older boys are going round in these morality squads telling off girls if they do not wear veils. They bully the girls and stop them mingling with boys in the playground.”
    My daughter tried to bring in an Easter egg for a friend and one boy grabbed it and smashed it against a wall. Gangs have clamped down on Easter celebrations. “My daughter tried to bring in an Easter egg for a friend and one boy grabbed it and smashed it against a wall. “Another girl of about 11 brought in a little Easter bunny toy that she wanted to show her friends. They grabbed that off her too. “All talk of Christmas and other non-Muslim festivals is banned. The teachers just turn a blind eye to it.”

    Racist the word that was taken into the heights of the law and politicians to help more immigrants come to Britain, whilst being used to suppress the workers into not asking about where are the jobs and the housing coming from to take these people, it’s now lost it’s use and is used only by Liebour crap in a lost attempt to reignite a damp squib, people forget we are a member of a Commonwealth and a seafaring nation and people from all over the world have come to this country and have lived here, black, white, pink and blue, most have fitted in, although we have had race riots in a few places, from the Irish navvies taken Brits jobs on the building of the railways to people from Aden having problems in some shipping ports, the change is mass immigration, we can’t supply jobs, housing ,schools in such quantities as needed, because most of the money is going to a black hole called the EU

    Serves the Daily Heil right says:

    The editor of that paper undoubtedly sleeps very well on his Scottish shooting estate – funded by the taxpayer in CAP subsidies.

    The Langwell estate has been claiming subsidies from the EU since 1999.

    As we all know the Daily Mail is very anti- EU as are the bulk of its readers.

    Strange then, that in 2011 alone, its editor, Paul Dacre, claimed £155,000 from taxpayers in EU subsidy CAP payments for his estate.

    Despite being the best paid newspaper editor in the country at £1.8 million last year.

    In return for that his paper has achieved the Number One spot – in the number of complaints to the Press Complaints Commission. Last year over 36% of all complaints to the PCC were about stories in the Daily Mail. Dacre sits on the committee and Chairs the Editor’s Code Committee.

    Perhaps the Mail should be investigating the abuse of taxpayer’s money a little closer to home.

    As they have admitted themselves, there’s no point in the LibDems since the Tories and Labour have converged with them into a single left-wing yet fascist party.

    There used to be a party called The Whigs that renamed itself the Liberal Party, and it used to stand for something called liberty. The Liberal Party got hijacked by those Socialists who had learnt to walk on land, and co-opted by them; but they have since bailed and returned to the Labour Party now that Labour has been progressively purged of working class people, so now you are left with two empty political husks called Liberal, and a lot of liberty has been sacrificed in trying to achieve this goal.

    If the LibDems were to reinvent themselves, it would mean dumping the LibDems and returning to the Liberal Party and standing for Liberty, and maybe something more libertarian, and opposing illiberal projects like the EU, and CCTV cameras, and databases and all that shit. You can’t be liberal and associate yourself with statism and paternalism.

    loathe them or hate them, UKIP stand for something, and that’s about all that differentiates them from the LibLabCon blob.

    There’s a big chunk of disenfranchised electorate that have been totally turned off politic s by the left-wing statist establishment, and they are there for UKIP to take, along with the betrayed labour vote.

    And ‘mystery about forty hypothetical cases of Ebola registered in our country. The virus is particularly common on the African continent – the cases “official” were recorded in Senegal, Mali and Ghana – may have arrived in Italy “thank you” to the massive exodus of immigrants to our shores. A first “bell” d ‘alarm was launched by Lampedusa. According to a report appeared in the network (and immediately removed for reasons of “national security”), in fact, April 16 would be recorded on an epidemic ‘island, never confirmed nor refuted by our Ministry of Health.

    A new ”SOS” about the spread of the virus’ Ebola in the Bel Paese is, this time, from Tuscany. Means of dissemination of the news shock is always the network: blogs, social networks, websites dedicated highlighted the “Curious Case of St. Flushing,” reception center site in Pisa, closed to the public due to the presence, all ‘inside of it, forty non-EU nationals which are to some strange symptoms. Capuzzi Sandra, Councillor for Social Policies of the Municipality of Pisa, he would have dismissed the alarmism of his countrymen, by classifying the health status of the refugees in the structure in these terms: “They have just a little bit fever, caused by stressful travel conditions under which the children were subjected. “

    Fear, meanwhile, remains. The forty possible carriers of the virus’ Ebola have been subjected to all the tests required in high-risk situations. The Italian population, however, does not feel the climate of reassurance that high institutional positions and subjected try to transmit information through various channels, official and unofficial. The tension increases, although the Ministry of Health said that, in the unlikely event of an outbreak, Rome and Milan would be ready to face the ‘epidemic.

    There are a number of errors in the CRUTEM data set.

    -99 for example is used to indicate a missing data point. Fine.

    But, a whole bunch of mainly Afr!can stations are recorded as having ‘0’ as monthly average for Jan roughly from 1952 thru 2012.

    Seems to be an up-trend in from 2006 in the Northern Hemisphere Non-Tropical data which will look into next – smelling like data errors as there is no corresponding uptrend in either the Southern Hemisphere or Nothern Hemisphere Tropical data.

    There is an example of the Met office ‘fucking’ with minds here:


    Note: The data series can be downloaded else where on the met site, and give coverage for the UK. The weather stations are a subset of those included in the CRUTEM data set.

    What I mean by ‘fucking’ with minds is that the easy download met data gives the average max / min monthly temperatures for stations around the UK: Not the average monthly temperatures.

    The average monthly temperature is not the average of the monthly max / min – those measures give a good range, but distort what you may perceive to be the actual average temperature which can be found in the CRUTEM set.

    Next stop – the ICOADS data set: That is the data gathered by ships for sea temperatures etc.

    The CRUTEM being a set of land based measurements is representative only of temperatures measured across 29% of the Earth’s surface: important to us as this is what we generally experience day to day, but hardly definitive.

    The poles are great big capacitors of “cold”. That is why the coldest day does not align with the shortest day. It is the fact that they melt/freeze every year that makes the delay. They just happen to be totally different in the construction.

    When anything melts it flows. The water flows of the world are the energy conveyors. Although in general there is a division in the north south weather, there is no division of the oceans.

    Finally the world was not made even. Some one really messed up with the division of the land mass between the hemispheres. They are the cause of these anomalies. It has nothing to do with the so called climate scientists. They are irrelevant.

    When the scientific world agreed on the flatness of this planet, some had seen the Oceans and knew the experts were nutters. The same is happening today.

    The Britannia Coco-nut Dancers says:

    My word…you were on to that one quickly;)

    Here’s my point. If you don’t accept the Rawlsian Social Justice Difference Principle that fairness should, if inequality is to advantage anyone, it should advantage the worst off or underprivileged, this is a pseudo-argument.

    Here’s why. When the benefit system was introduced after WWII, many had argued that it was needed to raise the falling population. That’s what it was about! But there were two sides to that concern back in the 1930s and 40s. One was about the below replacement level birth rate (a TFR of 2.1 or above is required to replace the parents) meaning the population would age in 30-60 years with an impact on pension and much more, and the other was differential fertility, i.e that those who were more able or better off were having far less kids than those who were less bright and, thus, usually, poorer off. That spells dumbing down.

    Since the 1930s, equal opportunity and comprehensive education has pretty much removed the barriers to higher education which once limited those with ability amongst the poor to get a place in higher education, so now the problem is that of dysgenic fertility i.e too many kids being born in the less able/poor part of the population distribution (Gaussian in IQ)s and not enough being born in the more able part. This skews the population towards being less skilled over time, which has a negative effect on economic productivity, whilst also burdening the dwindling numbers with productive ability with higher costs of supporting the swelling numbers of the less productive. Left to continue, the whole culture economically and socially implodes like a star does into a black hole, gravitationally sucking everything around into oblivion. That’s what’s unfair about the Rawlsian model of Social Justice, and that’s why the Conservatives should have cut child benefit at the low end of the distribution. They didn’t. The reason that’s bad is because it doesn’t address the critical problems. Cutting the number of studentships for university will help increase the birth-rate amongst the average and above, albeit the effect taking at least a generation or so to have any effect, but that’s far longer than any government is usually in power in the UK. This is why the only way to solve these problems is the way the Chinese did, i..e via Democratic Centralism, which is essentially Fabian Socialism (Old Labour) on steroids..

    The rest is idle ‘narrative’, except, where does the revenue go, it goes to make the gap between the self satisfied able wealthier and the less able, poorer. See Michael Young here:

    Huge subject!

    I think there are problems with many strands in the line of reasoning over it and I actually feel some sympathy for Michael Young’s argument in the article, despite not being a natural bedfellow of his.

    Agree completely with you that the Rawls approach turned out to be unfair, despite the irony of it having been ethically predicated on fairness! It was a pseudo argument, you are quite right.

    Whilst intelligence is partly a result of inherited genes, the part played by conditioning is underestimated in all the arguments IMO, especially in the age of internet. We often see how ordinary people have extraordinary children and vice versa.

    Privilege does normally confer an advantage but some are inclined to become over-obsessed by that smaller picture. Ironically, it is the “party of the people” which is creating its own dynasties now.

    Democratic Centralism is simply inhuman.

    The entire benefit system is a confidence trick and falls in the same class as fiat money.

    No good answer save to cast away so much of the interference that is still being added to by the current government. With much of that gone, the situation will improve dramatically. When the tide comes in then all the boats rise (unless they have been hopelessly holed beyond repair.)

    He first came to fame as a drugs dealer


    Didn’t r4alise he had a criminal uncle as well as a criminal dad and grandad.

    Young William Straw, not to be confused with an uncle of the same name recently arrested on assault charges, was exposed after supplying a Mirror reporter with cannabis resin in 1997.

    “Mirror editor Piers Morgan said he had no intention of publishing the story”

    Following the arrest of the minor, the episode descended into farce.

    Reporter Dawn Alford was herself arrested for drugs possession arising from her scoop and the newspapers were served with an injunction preventing them naming the “cabinet minister’s son” at the centre of the case.

    What the left really hate is people who try to better themselves.

    It wasn’t always this way, it’s a phenomenon of the 1970s when Labour were infiltrated by cold war commies.

    It used to be the case that the Labour party stood up for working people making a better life for their children. Bangor university, for example, was created by the left for this purpose.

    Now, it’s class war bollocks from simpletons like you. You ought to celebrate every working class family who make it to the middle class. It is what Labour were originally for.

    Agree that division of land mass and its different thermal properties compared water is a major factor for the oddness regarding average temperatures as measured.

    The oceans behave like huge heat sinks and heat transports, which have big influence on atmospheric weather / temperature etc. Anyone who knows the Great Lakes region or has lived near the coast (or indeed anywhere in the UK) will know that.

    The ICOAD (Ocean captured) data will likely be more relevant to any question of real global temperature change.

    Anyone interested in the Oceans data, it is here:

    It is just a fixed width file specification – the associated ‘metadata’ for interpreting the coded fields is available on the ncdc site.

    Lowering that turnout wouldn’t change anything, even with NOTAs.

    We could send the NOTA message, but the message would be ignored.

    Your Gran probably doesn’t agree with gay marriage or complete subjugation to our European partners and the US new world order either, so you can see why we had to replace her kind.

    We’ve managed to give all the urban housing and jobs to ethnics so that the whites are confined to rural reservations. DEFRA has the job of finishing them off.
