Poor Little Snowflake, Gets Paid £100k A Week And has To Put Up With Abuse?

Snowflake of the month award goes to England and Tottenham defender Danny Rose who says he “can’t wait to see the back of football” and is frustrated at the lack of action taken against fans’ racism.

Racist chanting was directed at several England players, including Rose, during the Euro 2020 qualifier in Montenegro. Hmmm sounds a rough sort of place, can’t expect politically correct behaviour from a bunch of goat molesters. Still top footballers get paid more per minute than most of the spectators earn in a year, Mr. Rose should be able to shrug off a bit of racist abuse for what he gets paid (notice I didn’t say ‘earns’.)

Uefa has charged Montenegro with racist behaviour over abuse of England’s black players but Rose, 28, does not expect a significant punishment. The left-back said: “When countries get fined what I probably spend on a night out in London what do you expect?”

Well Danny – boy, when you go around making cuntish remarks like that maybe you deserve a bit of abuse.

Rose, who was also abused while on England Under-21 duty in Serbia in 2012, says he will play on but has “had enough” of racism in the game. Wow, he’s ben called monkey boy or whatever twice in seven years and he’s upset. I get called worse things than that everyday in comments on my internet posts, it doesn’t bother me.

However it bothers little Danny so much he’s looking forward to giving up his £2.5 million a year profession. He says, “How I programme myself is that I think I’ve got five or six more years left in football, and I just can’t wait to see the back of it”.

Ah, he’s so desperate to see the back of this disgusting game with its racist fans he’s only going to stick around picking up his big fat paycheques for another five years. Poor little mite.

If you feel that strongly Danny, why not grow a pair, announce your retirement and fuck off now, you will not be missed.

London’s Future?

This article, by Theodore Dalrymple, first published in Law and Liberty is reproduced by this Not For Profit site under fair use terms in the public interest, as the chaotic failure of our government to deliver the democratic decision to leave the European Union (Brexit) has revealed the chasm that has opened between the ruling elite and the nation they govern is now insurmountable.

I Have Seen London’s Future and It Is Caracas

 

Important (for good or evil) as Brexit may be to the future of Britain, it is not without its importance for the European Union. Indeed, it was always essential for the Union that Britain’s departure should be an economic disaster for Britain: for if it were not, why have a union at all?

It was therefore entirely predictable that the Union should drive a hard bargain with Britain, even a bargain economically harmful to itself, provided only that it was worse for Britain: for the self-preservation of the European political class is at stake. In the European Union politics always trumps economics.

In Britain too, political considerations were uppermost in the minds of those who voted for Brexit. They saw in the European Union a Yugoslavia in the making, led by a megalomaniac class without effective checks or balances. But now they are increasingly apprehensive of the economic costs of Brexit.

And the economic auguries for Britain are indeed poor, though not only, or even principally, because of the European Union’s hostility. The fact is that Britain is unlikely to be able to take any advantage of life outside the European straitjacket because its own political class is itself in favour of straitjackets that are no better, and quite possibly worse than, the European ones. The present Prime Minister, Theresa May, is very much a statist, indistinguishable from European social democrats, and the leader of the opposition, Mr Corbyn, who might well be the next Prime Minister, is an unapologetic admirer of Hugo Chavez. It is hardly to be expected that foreign investors will place much trust or confidence in an isolated country whose next government might very well weaken property rights, impose capital controls and increase corporate taxation in favour of supposed social justice. It would not take very long to turn Britain into a northern Venezuela: a Venezuela without the oil or the tropical climate.

Moreover, Britain already has many weaknesses and few strengths. It has a huge and persistent trade imbalance, because it does not produce enough of what the world wants and cannot easily be made to do so; it has a large national debt, about the same size as that of France, but without a highly functioning infrastructure such as France’s to show for it; its household debt is among the highest in the world. For many years, its economic policy might as well have been presided over by Mr Madoff; its social policy has been to smash up all forms of social solidarity or support for the vulnerable that do not pass through the state. The destruction of the little platoons has been very thorough: most large ‘charities’ in Britain are now dependent on government rather than on private funding, and hence are in effect departments of state.

As if this were not enough, Britain has enormous cultural problems, perhaps only to be expected in a country in which more than fifty per cent of children are born out of wedlock and twenty per cent do not eat a meal with another member of their household more than once every two weeks. A dangerously high and perhaps unsustainable proportion of the population is unfitted for productive life in a modern economy, having attained an abysmally low educational level despite (or because of?) considerable state expenditure. This section of the population is not merely indifferent to refinement of any kind – intellectual, aesthetic or of manners – but actively hostile to it. Similarly, it is not merely not anxious to learn, it is anxious not to learn.

This explains why Britain has persistently imported labour from Eastern Europe to perform tasks in its service industries that ordinarily one might have expected its large fund of indigenous non-employed people to perform. The fact is, however, that though these tasks require no special skills, they did require certain personal qualities such as reliability, politeness, and willingness to adapt: and these the eligible local population lack entirely. No hotel-keeper, for example, would consider using British labour if he could get foreign.

Perhaps nothing captures the levels of personal incompetence and lack of self-respect in Britain than the fact that young men of the lowest social class are about half as likely to die in prison as they are if left at liberty. In prison, though adult, they are looked after, at least in a basic way, and told what to do. They are no longer free to pursue their dangerous and crudely self-indulgent lifestyle, in which distraction is the main occupation. In prison they receive the health care that, though it is free to them under the National Health Service, they are not responsible enough to seek when at liberty. In short, they do not know, because they have never been taught, how to live in a minimally constructive fashion, though they were certainly not born ineducable.

No doubt other comparable countries have similar problems, but none (at least, none known to me) has them to anything like the same extent. These problems do not originate from Britain’s membership of the European Union, nor will they be solved by exit from the Union. They can be solved only by something more resembling a religious revival than by any likely government action. But expecting a population to bethink itself while simultaneously being offered political solutions that require no effortful cultural change is unreasonably optimistic. And politicians are unlikely to be frank about the problem for two reasons: first because alluding to the deficiencies of their electorate is probably not the best way to get elected, and second because it downgrades the providential role of politics, which politicians are understandable reluctant to do.

As if this were not quite enough, the hold on the country’s intelligentsia of statist solutions to practically all problems is still immensely strong. Nowhere is this more evident than in its attitude to the National Health Service, the establishment of which it almost universally regards as having been a great achievement, perhaps Britain’s only great achievement of the twentieth century. This is despite all the evidence that it has not been egalitarian in its effect, as it was originally supposed to be, or that almost all Western European health systems are superior to it. The fact that all Western Europeans regard it with at least disdain, and more usually with absolute horror, does nothing to shake the British intelligentsia’s faith in the essential goodness of the National Health Service. The only perceived problem with it is that it underfunded: the same problem as with all other government services. In the struggle between rhetoric and reality, rhetoric always wins.

The population by and large follows the intelligentsia, and the politicians follow the population; but the only economic advantages to Brexit would be the possibility of a nimbler, less regulated and bureaucratic economy. There is now no prospect of this. Therefore, I have seen the future of London, and it is Caracas – or very might be.

 

Bradford Abuser Gang Victim Claims Bradford, Rotherham, Rochdale Gangs ‘Linked’

One of the victims of a Bradford grooming gang has told the media that most of the girls at the children’s home where she was placed by local authority social workers were being sexually exploited by gangs of immigrant males. She called for a nationwide inquiry, alleging that numerous grooming and abuse gangs across the country — including the most notorious cases in Rochdale and Rotherham — are linked.

Fiona Goddard, 25, told BBC Look North regional news magazine, “I lived in a care home and I know that most of the girls, barring about three, were all getting sexually exploited as well.

“I also met numerous girls while we were out with other guys that maybe didn’t come from care homes, but came from broken backgrounds and they were all getting exploited.”

On the extent and organisation of the systematic abuse of vulnerable girls from borken homes, she said, “When I was at that house [where she was raped], people came from Birmingham, Rochdale, Rotherham, Blackburn, Glasgow, Oxford.

“It is widespread and they are all linked.”

“There definitely needs to be a public inquiry; it needs to be an independent one,” she added.

Bradford Council’s interim child services chief Gladys Rhodes White said of Ms Goddard’s call for an iquiry, “I’m not seeing evidence that there is a wide-scale, large issue specific to Bradford.

“I think if it did come to light that there were lots of victims that had been missed,” she added, it would be something the Safeguarding Board would want to “look at”. This is typical of the authorities complacent attitude when dealing with sex crimes committed by immigrants.

Ms Goddard came forward with her complaint in 2014, after seeing a report on the abuse of more than 1,500 girls in Rotherham, and warned that while some rape survivors had gone to the police, “there are girls that either lack the understanding or aren’t in the situation where they can [come forward].”

She gave evidence in a trial at Bradford Crown Court last month that resulted in the convictions of Parvaze Ahmed, 36, Naveed Akhtar, 43, Saeed Akhtar, 55, Zeeshan Ali, 32, Keiran Harris, 28, Izar Hussain, 32, Fahim Iqbal, 28, Basharat Khaliq, 38, and Mohammed Usman, 31.

The child rapists were found guilty of 22 offences including inciting child prostitution and rape, in abuse that began in 2008 when she and another unnamed victim were 14 years old; all nine were given terms of between 18 and 20 years — but will likely be released from prison much earlier.

The young woman waived her lifelong right to anonymity to discuss her case and reach out to other potential victims of grooming gangs.

Macron Moves Against yellow Vests, Bans Protests In Neighborhoods With “Ultra” Radicals

 

France is cracking down on “yellow vest” protesters following a weekend of renewed violence – as the Macron administration announced on Monday that it would ban demonstration in several areas of France – including the Champs Elysees in Paris, if “ultra elements” are present, according to Interior Minister Edouard Philippe.

‘We will ban demonstrations if ultra elements’ are present, said Philippe, according to CNEWS.

The ban will apply to “neighborhoods that have been most affected as soon as we have knowledge of” the “ultras.”

“I am thinking of course the Champs-Elysees in Paris, the place Pey-Berland in Bordeaux, the Capitol Square in Toulouse”, Philippe added, where “we will proceed to the immediate dispersal of all groups.”

Philippe added that he has asked the State Judicial Agent to “systematically seek the financial responsibility of troublemakers.”

Yellow Vests Turn Violent Again, Cars Torched, buildings Vandalised As Macron’s ‘Great Debate’ Ends

After several weeks of largely peaceful protests, with no reports of significant violence during weekend 13, 14 and 15, France’s Yellow Vests are back in full swing on weekend 16, following the end of President Macron’s unsuccessful ‘great debate’ – during which thousands of local meetings were conducted over a two-month period in the hopes of solving national issues through citizen debates.  Unfortunately the tone of the meetings was patronising and condescending to people who attended, with officials taking the line that ordinary people were not well enough informed on matters of economics and international relations to understand President Macron’s programme for transforming France.

Unfortunately after Macron signed the treaty of Aachen with Germany’s Angela Merkel, a committment to further integrate the two nations economically and politically, some people suggested, a tad unkindly perhaps, that Macron was simply rebooting Vichy France, the government of collaborator Marshal Petain during the Nazi occupation from 1939 to 1944.

Up to half-a-million people participated in 10,000 meetings across the country to discuss social issues ranging from taxes – which the French pay the most of any OECD country in the world, to immigration, surrender of national sovereignty to the EU, the state of French democracy and climate change.

“We have been patient but now we want results,” Yellow Vest Laurent Casanova told press agency AFP.

With no meaningful changes yet apparent or on offer after twelve weeks of nationwide cathartic venting which began in November 2018, the Yellow Vests are now back to angry demonstrations as the protests kick off their 16th week with an ‘ultimatum’ rally – marked by lootings, fires, and mayhem that organizers maintain are due to a radical minority.

Some protesters attempted to erect barricades to block streets around Place Charles de Gaulle – prompting the police to respond with water cannon, tear gas and other riot control techniques.

Vehicles were set on fire according to AP as the demonstration turned into yet another riot, and the lootings began. Shop windows were mashed and furniture broken. Around 200 people were arrested according to BFM TV, while about 80 shops near the Champs Elysees had been damaged and/or looted according to AFP, citing Champs Elysees committee president Jean-Noel Reinhardt.

Wooden boards nailed over the windows of iconic stores such as Boss and Lacoste in the most fashionable street in Paris were ripped off and thrown onto burning heaps as looters emerged, arms laden with stolen clothes, some of which were used to fuel the flames.

Cafe tables and chairs also ended up on the fire and the famous Fouquet’s brasserie — favorite locale of the rich and famous, including ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy who controversially used it to celebrate his 2007 election — was also sacked in an orgy of anti-capitalist destruction.

“It’s unfortunate but this is the only way we can make ourselves heard,” a yellow vested protestor who traveled from the southeastern Bourgogne region for the protest, billed as an “ultimatum” to Macron, said as he looked on.

The police, having erected a ring of steel around the Arc de Triomphe, battled for over seven hours to disperse the protesters, using copious amounts of tear gas, stun grenades, and water cannon.

But for most of the day the protesters, who waved French as well as regional flags and chanted “Macron resign”, held the famous avenue which was shrouded in smoke and teargas.

“It’s the apocalypse!,” one demonstrator shouted with glee.

French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe vowed to “severely punish” the radicals responsible for rioting and setting fires around one of France’s richest neighbourhoods.

Philippe visited the Champs-Elysees on Saturday to show his support for riot police and firefighters struggling to get the unrest under control after it broke out amid yellow vest protests.

He estimated up to a few thousand troublemakers were responsible for Saturday’s “unacceptable” violence. Speaking to reporters, he praised firefighters who saved people trapped in a building set fire by protesters.

Saturday’s riots were so severe that President Macron had to cut short a vacation at the La Mongie ski resort in the Hautes-Pyrénées following a three-day tour of East Africa which took him to Djibouti, Ethiopia and Kenya.

Macron skied on Friday, telling La Depeche du Midi “I’m going to spend two-three days here to relax, to find landscapes and friendly faces,” adding “I’m happy to see the Pyrenees like that, radiant, although I know it was more difficult at Christmas” referring to the lack of snow in December.

In response to Saturday’s violence, Macron said over Twitter that “strong decisions” were coming to prevent more violence.

Macron said some individuals — dubbed “black blocs” by French police forces — were taking advantage of the protests by the Yellow Vest grassroots movement to “damage the Republic, to break, to destroy.” Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said on Twitter that those who excused or encouraged such violence were complicit in it. –Bloomberg

 

In December, Macron attempted to assuage angry protesters with 10 billion ($11.2 billion) in tax cuts and other benefits for low-wage pensioners, but nobody believed he intended to turn promises into action.

Macron admits Yellow Vest chaos COULD be his fault – ‘I made MISTAKES’

President Emmanuel Macron of France is trying to appear as if, after sixteen weeks of protests, he is finally acknowledging his initial handling of the yellow vest protest movement was flawed and high handed, admitting it exacerbated the unrest. The europhile president, who recently infuriated his critics by signing a treaty that will lead to closer economic and political integration between France and Germany, also warned against giving in to the wave of nationalism sweeping across the bloc, as he called for a “strong, united and sovereign” Europe.

He said: “When we move ahead too quickly … we make mistakes. I’ve made mistakes in the past, which are part of the explanation for the [yellow vest] crisis. We cannot leave those who need to work, to live, to move face an uncertain future devoid of opportunities,” he continued, as he called for “reconciliation” following 16 weeks of sometimes violent anti-government protests.

In fact that amounts to a non – admission of culpability because Macron treied the same grovelling mea culpa trick back in December, as reported by France 24, before ramping up the police violence in a bid to suppress criticism of his regime.

The yellow vest movement – which takes its name from the fluorescent safety jackets all French drivers must carry in their cars – started way back in mid-November over rising fuel costs and planned fuel tax hikes but quickly morphed into a popular revolt against Mr Macron’s perceived neglect of the working class and globalist, pro-business economic policies.

His government has since deployed paramilitary police to quash the crisis – which is still ongoing – and when that failed he tried promising to increase the minimum wage, slash taxes for low-income pensioners, tax-free overtime pay and a scuttling of the controversial fuel tax. Unfortunately for his government, few people believed him.

Mr Macron also spoke against the continuing growth of support for nationalist parties in Europe, as he called for the soon-to-be 27-member bloc to remain “united and sovereign”. The boy Macron seems to have a very vague grasp of what sovereign means as only yesterday his mentor Hausfrau – Volksfuhrer Merkel was demanding that memberr states surrender sovereignty over border control to the EU.

Urging EU states to fight against any form of “retreat into nationalism,” the 41-year-old said countries needed to instead focus on an advance into Maoism working together to resolve common problems, such as mass immigration from sub-Saharan Africa and economic slowdowns. Afain Macron is talking through his derriere, since being elected he has constantly called for more immigration and more erosion of European cultures to accomodate the excesses of Islamic extremism.

He said: “No country in Europe, not Italy, not France, will solve its problems by opposing itself to other European countries and by turning inwards at national level. We will solve our problems by cooperating.” Or as his German allies might put it, “Ve haff vays of making you cooperate.”

An Ex – Pat’s View Of Britain

I had hoped normal service would be resumed by now but unfortunately I’m still running up and down to the hospital, looking after myself as my carer lies ill, and doing the things that need to be done in preparation for her return. So as far as blogging goes my six cylinder engine id only firing on one cylinder which means I’m having to borrow a loft of posts. Here’s a long answer from Quora I felt was worth sharing:

Samantha Williams
Samantha Williams, Selling on Ebay for Years (2004-present)

I was back in the UK in October for a week….& Holy Mother of God what a change in a country, & before I am attacked, I was born & raised in rather a nice part of South Wales, what was once a small village called Marshfield, I moved to Spain 20 odd years back.

A sadder, more miserable place I have never seen, nothing anywhere looked like it was being maintained, no fresh licks of paint, no trees cut, an air of decay everywhere I looked, my once fabulous City, where I could walk alone safely at 2am in the morning 30 years ago, reduced to nothing more than designer cafe after designer cafe, all patiently waiting for the next BIG rugby/football/sports/concert. NO ONE in any of the shops, the only people I saw spending any money were having their nails done, hugging a cup of coffee which they could make last an hour, or milling around a pub. I popped into a branch of my bank where the lovely staff bent over backwards to help, the terrific young guy who served me thanking ME for being so friendly & polite, I looked around & all I could see were the banks clients berating the staff.

The cherry on the cake in Cardiff was watching a few drunks wobbling down the pedestrianized center of the City in broad daylight & to watch another as he unzipped himself & proceed to pee against the wall of Howells of Cardiff, one of the loveliest & oldest buildings in the center of the City. He was chortling away into his mobile phone & clearly thrilled he was peeing in broad daylight, my daughter stood there in astonishment, & could not believe that no-one passing seemed in any way phased, this was at around 5.30pm after having spent the day showing my daughter the sights. Ho bloody Ho.

My ex hubby, luckily we are good friends, has just taken the huge step of moving back to Spain for racism has become endemic & makes him feel sick to his stomach, the sight of the homeless sleeping in the streets or queuing up at food banks disgusts him, that vanity projects kick started by the likes of the gruesome & soulless Boris Johnson cost millions, & earn nothing whilst banishing desperately needed housing projects.

No-one seems to care for anyone, he broke his leg a while back, had to cross London via a multitude of trains & tubes, & even when people saw him on crutches they showed him little if any courtesy.

My Mother & Brother voted for Brexit after having been fed a raw diet of undiluted malice by the popular press, even the nations BBC News Chanel played a subtle roll in bending the public to this end, yet even my Mother, brainwashed by the wondrous Brexiteers, now realizes they were all lied to.

Over the last year or so the once friendly small village in which my Mother lives, (has lived in for over 50 years) lost its terrific local Doctor & its local bus service, AFTER it was deemed a non essential luxury having a bus service to & from the village. They now have no doctor & no bus, yet the glorious old cottages & farmhouses are being bulldozed to make way for huge faux Regency follies, where the new owners drive their shiny SUVs back & forth to the local junior school, who probably would not know one end of a cow from the other & would no doubt try to sue the farmer if they ever trod in something that was not plastic wrapped.

My Mother now has to wait sometimes weeks to be seen by a Doctor whos surgery is miles away. A few years ago she had to have a short stay in Hospital, post op, & there were no available beds in any ward, so she spent a day in a Hospital hallway, packed in like a sardine, on the one side of her was an old man who appeared dead, no-one looked at him for hours, on the other a woman who would not stop rolling around & moaning, desperate for someone to tend her.

3 weeks ago my Brother had a stroke, he was promised a place in a rehabilitation ward, they then decided he could go home for they wanted his bed, it did not matter that he could only just stand upright, let alone walk, & had no use of his right arm, the ambulance pulled up, & he was hauled out. The ambulance drove away leaving him outside the house at the end of the 10 meter garden path, & he could not walk. I repeat, a stroke victim left to find his own way into his home!

I am mortified & sickened that this once beautiful country has (is) turning its back on the poor whilst catering only to the more fortunate. Who in their right mind would want to live in the UK?
