South Ribble Tories Select Seema Kennedy

seema-kennedy

CCHQ will be pleased that the South Ribble Tories have selected, on the first ballot, Seema Kennedy to replace Lorraine Fullbrook. With a 5,554 vote majority to hold it is a battleground seat – Fullbrook put in a big campaign to win the seat from Labour in 2010, reputedly the most expensive in the country. Seema – a Conservative councillor for Marshalswick South ward in St Albans – is of Persian-Irish parentage, her family fled Iran after the revolution. A Cambridge graduate she made her money as a property lawyer. From the modernising wing of the Tories…

    http://www.oldham-chronicle.co.uk/news-features/8/news/40333/goal-to-get-britain-working-again

    This is what she said back then:

    “I recognise only too well the enormous economic and cultural benefits, as well as the great British tradition of tolerance, which immigration has brought.

    “The problem is that if immigration is unfettered, it leads to a strain on resources and tensions between different ethnic groups.”

    “The Conservative party’s policy is to bring down the numbers of people coming to the UK to the tens of thousands (as it was when we were in power in the mid 1990s) rather than the hundreds of thousands.

    “There will be a points-based system for migrants, as there is in Australia, and there will be a cap on the total number of people coming to the country.

    “If a foreigner wishes to marry a British citizen, then he or she will have to pass an exam to prove their English language skills.”

    Normal people know the word ‘modernising’ is to adapt something to modern needs or habits, typically by installing modern equipment or adopting modern ideas or methods. Whereas Lefty mongs like you think it means ‘politically progressive’ and of course to be politically progressive you just have to be left-wing right Jimmy?

    The truth is Modern means different things to different people and if it wasn’t for lefty mongs twisting and changing the meaning of words I wouldn’t have to type this.

    Young offenders will be ordered to go to bed at 10.30pm under strict new rules announced by the Government.

    Justice Secretary Chris Grayling revealed the new “lights out” regulation to be imposed on 15 to 17-year-olds in English institutions.

    He said those who refuse to obey the new rules will be punished with the removal of privileges such as access to a television.

    But prison reform campaigners labelled the plan a “petty restriction” and said it would add to problems faced in understaffed prisons.

    A forrmer Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury says:

    During the Cold War Americans thought of Western Europe and Great Britain as independent sovereign countries. Whether they were or not, they most certainly are not today. We are now almost seven decades after WWII, and US troops still occupy Germany. No European government dares to take a stance different from that of the US Department of State.

    Not long ago there was talk both in the UK and Germany about departing the European Union, and Washington told both countries that talk of that kind must stop as it was not in Washington’s interest for any country to exit the EU. The talk stopped. Great Britain and Germany are such complete vassals of Washington that neither country can publicly discuss its own future.

Then a rushed breakfast, then laying out kit in a perfectly pointless manner, then packing it all away; then marching up and down for half the day, then PT, then more marching up and down and other bollocks, sometimes cross-country runs, sometimes just running around until one dropped, then more “bull” until about 19h00.

    Not nearly far enough… I’ve seen far too many tattoed hookers with brown kids latched onto fat taxi drivers getting in, only to drop the Hunt in short order, once the 5 years is served for citizenship.

    The English language test isn’t enough, there should be an A-Level maths, physics, chemistry, economics, and British history exams too, plus a degree, plus 5 years experience in job on a list of in-demand professions.

    …but it would be lot simpler to just ban immigration completely. We could then sack all the bureaucracy and hanger on legal practices and “support services” and reduce the tax bill a bit. We could certainly do with fewer Ragheads, Ruskies and Yella Peril dumping their capital here into property and exacerbating the wealth gap. What do we actually need immigration for anyway? We’ve got plenty of people, surely they just need training and incentivising to fill the demands in the economy? …or is that too revolutionary an idea?!

    A blog has a limited lifetime. Look what happened to Iain Dale, who started out fresh and iconoclastic and has decayed into mumbling to a private clique that you have to join to be allowed to comment.

    When Guido started he was a free and dangerous outsider, exciting to read. Now he is obsessed with irrelevant squabbles inside the Westminster bubble and can’t say anything that would offend his paymaster Murdoch. He has become trivial and dull, while the blog is so laden with advertisements that you have to resort to blocking software to be able to read it at all. Personally I don’t read the posts any more and go straight to the comments, which have become duller too but still have a certain Saturday-night-at-Broadmoor buzz.

    This was bound to happen. Energy flags. And when you get too close to Westminster it draws you in, and from being one of the people pissing into the tent you become one of the parasitic elite pissing out.

    Lots of coverage and discussion in the German press about Cameron’s stance over Juncker. It seems the Germans are slowly waking up to the fact that the British public really are willing to leave the EU. Cameron gets a surprisingly good hearig from many people and Merkel seen as somehow having made a few wrong moves, though it is not quite clear how she managed that…

    It is slowly dawning on some of the less thick members of the German public that if GB goes, they will be picking up an even bigger bill for an unreformed Europe to be run in a manner they also despise.

    Prime Minister David Cameron says:

    Morning Benders

    A man joins a very exclusive nudist colony….On his first day, he takes off his clothes and starts to wander around. A gorgeous petite blonde walks by, and the man immediately gets an erection.

    The woman notices his erection, comes over to him and says, ‘Did you call for me?’

    The man replies, ‘No, what do you mean?’

    She says, ‘You must be new here. Let me explain. It’s a rule here that if you get an erection, it implies you called for me.’

    Smiling, she leads him to the side of the swimming pool, lies down on a towel, eagerly pulls him to her and happily lets him have his way with her.

    The man continues to explore the colony’s facilities. He enters the sauna and, as he sits down, he farts…..

    Within minutes, a huge, hairy man lumbers out of the steam-room toward him, ‘Did you call for me?’ says the hairy man.

    ‘No, what do you mean?’ says the newcomer.

    ‘You must be new,’ says the hairy man, ‘it’s a rule that if you fart, it implies that you called for me.’ The huge man easily spins him around, bends him over a bench and has his way with him.

    The newcomer staggers back to the colony office, where he is greeted by the smiling, naked receptionist, ‘May I help you?’ she says.

    The man yells, ‘Here’s my membership card. You can have the key back and you can keep the $500 membership fee.’

    ‘But, Sir,’ she replies, ‘you’ve only been here for a few hours. You haven’t had the chance to see all our facilities.’

    The man replies, ‘Listen lady, I’m 68 years old. I only get an erection once a month. I fart 35 times a day!!’

    @táxpáyér

    From my month of self-imposed purdah from commenting against the behatted one, I think the charitable here will allow me the following wisdom from the good Dr Parva and his Ayurveda teachings, in words far more elegant than I could ever aspire to.

    Self-praise is no recommendation


    Delusions of grandeur form the footrest of self-praise, and it is often linked to feigned notions about the self. Self-praise is not a good sign and always proves counterproductive when it is communicated to a well-meaning, logical and knowledgeable population of the world.

    You may only belie the very act of self-praise if you think you are the person of unusual ability and address. None of us is so perfect to claim this stature; and if we actually are of this magnificent and towering address then we don’t even need to self-praise ourselves. Self-praise leads to vanity and ego and is seen as a bad thing in almost every faith and religion. Given all its negative meanings in various dictionaries, which include bluster, brag, braggadocio, bragging, crow, crowing, line-shooting, rodomontade, self-assertion, speech act, vapouring, vaunt, self-praise is truly no recommendation.

    When you indulge in self-praise, you are in reality insulting the sound intelligence and wisdom of the people who you think should be seconding your blabbermouth. You lose your faith in them and what they develop of you is a residual image of being a dishonest, self-centered and a highly disinteresting character. Montaigne has remarked that a man’s accusations of himself are always believed; his praises of self never.

    Psychologists group people of self-praising behavior among one of the narcissism types; something that bears a strong lineage to personality disorders. Those who hold high opinions about themselves are normally grouped into the ‘trickster-type’ which is charming, engaging, smooth and inviting and may have many social graces. All these adjectives often act as a veneer on a disturbed personality till they meet someone who is more knowledgeable than them and has a better know-how of things.

    “Behind the ‘trust me’ messages,” say psychologists, “you will find a malicious intent. It is the personality of the ‘con-artist’. The motives are covert and include exploitation, limitless entitlement and a cruel twist when the victim realizes the script of betrayal.”

    The one with ten houses might also do well to reflect upon these words.

Say Geedes, you could run a competion on which tax you would like the chancellor to cut with the proviso that you must make that up with a cut or increase in tax elsewhere.

    This is not credible – the BBC cult of celebrity is as powerful as ever, whatever is going on right now is being done by the current generation of celebrities who are untouchable due to their status. There was that recent one where the young gay committed suicide apparently due to his treatment by some celeb whose name we were not even permitted to know.

    Hundreds of BBC and their hangers on at Glastonbury this weekend along with a virtually unlimited supply of young stupid celeb worshippers – no chance there isn’t something dodgy going on.

    You obviously have been a long time reader, so respect what you are saying, am probably more aware of the inherent danger of editorial atrophy than most. The voice of the blog has clearly changed since 2004. The question for you is who takes more editorial risks than this blog? Who bites the politicians harder? Who goes after wrong ‘uns of all parties with the vigour and relish that we do?

    As for the other charges: we’ve always done political tittle-tattle – it is in our DNA, it is our raison d’etre and why we’re #1. We are to the Westminster bubble what Fairy Liquid is to plates. We are of the bubble, if we were not how would we burst politician’s bubbles? People say they want highbrow stuff, in my experience most don’t really. Who reads any article about Iraq – we don’t – bores reading boring articles about politics. As for being Westminster obsessed – guilty – it is a political gossip blog.

    By the way, Guido was pro-Murdoch before taking his shilling, to a large extent sharing his view of Britain, e.g. it needs shaking up because it is class stratified to a ridiculous extent in the 21st century. It is obviously complex and complicated for Media Guido to write about the Sun, so by and large we don’t. However ask yourself this – where did you first find out about the Coulson-Brooks affair? Here.

    The ads pay for the four contributors to the blog and mean we don’t have to go to billionaires or union barons cap in hand. Plenty would like to own and control this blog. Not all of those four voices want to fight the powers that be as much as the founder. Young people these days…

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.”
