What Putin Will Tell The UN

As blog.co.uk winds down to its inevitable death, I find it harder to muster the enthusiasm needed for writing scintillating blog posts. So from now until the end of days I’ll just keep posting stuff from elsewhere:

LEAKED: Putin Talking Points for UN Speech Spilled by Foreign Minister
from International Observer

On Monday, September 28, Russia President Vladimir Putin is planning a one-day trip to New York City to take part in the 70th session of the UN General Assembly, exactly 10 years after his previous speech there. This time Putin cannot afford to skip the UN session because of the jubilee character of the meeting. No doubt, his address will be one of the most closely watched by the whole world.

Knowing his reserved demeanor, nobody expects him to bang upon the podium with his shoe, but what will the Russian leader bring to New York?

In an interview on the Russian Sunday Time TV program, Putin’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov spilled the beans on what his boss would say to the world.

Of course, Putin will be talking about the economic sanctions imposed on his country by the West for Russia’s interference in Ukraine’s politics. Mr. Lavrov, expressing the position of Putin, said that the West had been “obsessed with sanctions measures, and not only toward Russia… As soon as something doesn’t go out according to their [West’s] templates—right away they grab the instrument of sanctions,” he said, and this might be the Putin’s exact future quote.

But the sanctions on Russia won’t become a major issue of Putin’s address.


It should be quite an amusing day with Putin talking his usual, measured, politically mature good sense while the coked up rent boy Obama rants and raves about Russian warmongering as his own US troops are active in all the major conflicts currenty going on, most of which have been started by US meddling in sovereign nation’s domestic politics during the presidency of the man who was sold as the peacemaker, joybringer and aquatic pedestrian.

Moving On

As all bloggers on this platform and most readers are aware by now, blog.co.uk will become a dead parrot blogging platform later this year. Will 5000+ posts, well over two million words and five million hits to its credit it would seem a shame to simply abandon Boggart Blog. Worse, the family our founder Jenny Greeneeth spawned (yes, Jenny does spawn, she’ that kind of creature)would be orphans.

So a new WordPress site has been set up and over the next couple of months the Boggart Blog content will be transferred. Once we are up to date, new posts will be put online at:

The Original Boggart Blog

I’m still getting over my recent experience in an NHS hospital where having rushed me in, kept me twelve days, made me feel at lot worse than when I arrived, then having promised to remove the gallstone that was causing the problems, recalled me and failed to find a gallstone, made me even more ill than I had been (but at least sent an absolutely gorrrrrrgeous Indian nurse to look after me as I came round from the anesthetic – I could have snorted cocaine off her bosom for £300 a day any time he said to show he has been paying attention – in fact I would have paid them £300) getting better has taken a while.

So if you have commented, mailed or PMd me or tried to contact any other way and I’ve not replied, well I’ll get there just as soon as I can stop thinking about that Indian nurse.

The Original Boggart Blog

The successor to the original Boggart Blog, founded in 2005 by Ian R Thorpe (i.e. the short, old, non swimming, English Ian Thorpe who has actually been Ian Thorpe much longer than that Aussie upstart. CLICK HERE to meet, the poet, author and publisher Ian R Thorpe

Ten years online, over 5 million page views, not a bad record but it seemed a shame to lose all the words because the platform we used for the first ten years closed in 2015. So we transferred five thousand posts, funny, tragic, surreal, social history in the making and carried on from there.

Racism – The English Language For Lefties Lessons Keep Rolling Out

It seems a lot of educated people in the blogosphere and on facebook and other social media were as pissed off as I was with those semi literate, politically correct, brainwashed idiots who tried to shout down intelligent discussion by screaming ‘racist’ or ‘bigot’ at anyone who disagreed with them.

These people, knowing that one of the main UK parties (the Liberal Democrats) campaigning on a globalist agenda platform in the European Parliament elections were heading for extinction while the others (Labour and Conservative) were simply treading water thanks to the Lib Dem vote collapsing, had no arguments, no policies, only blind rabid hatred of anyone who disagreed with their anti – British agenda.

In a post by longrider which is really a plug for an article by Allison Pearson on a generation so indoctrinated with politically correct ideology they think intelligent debate consists of the Fascist tactic of screaming pejorative insults at opponents.

Sadly I noticed people older that the teens / early twenties here who are afflicted with the same disease.

What in my view made the point most strongly on that Longrider posts was a comment from Stonyground:

“Who is it who has brainwashed these children so that they believe that racism, rather than being prejudice against people because of their race, is simply failing to use approved terminology when referring to race related matters?”

I can tell him that on my fiends list at Facebook and in this community, the people screaming loudest were schoolteachers. Is it any wonder our schools are turning out pupils who are illiterate when their teacher are illiterate?

Isolation, the curse of the Independent Minded

I’m a bit stuck today, just can’t get myself going. It may be withdrawal symptoms, I finished rereading The Girl Who Kicked A Hornet’s Nest last Sunday and thus am parted from Lisbeth Salander and company for a couple of years.

Or it may be winter blues, being restricted to a very slow walk my outdoor time is very restricted at this time of year and in the kind of weather we have been having.

Or perhaps it is that editing a novel is a pain in the arse.

Still, as most of the people who read Boggart Blog are pretty independent minded (I doubt many sheeple return for a second helping) I thought you might enjoy something I stumbled on today.

Isolation, The Curse Of The Independent Mind

from Julian Walsh atWaking Times –

Today I wish to address to you a certain brand of loneliness. It is perhaps the most debilitating form of the condition. The state is sometimes referred to as “isolation” or the sense of being disconnected, apart, abandoned or simply “different” from everyone else you know. This situation is compounded when friends, coworkers and even family members begin seeing you differently. They’re not so much intrigued by your positive changes but rather disappointed by your shift in attitude and may even be concerned for your mental stability. These otherwise well-meaning souls are occasionally characterized as the “sleeping” and you may very well be part of the “awakening.”

I say “awakening” because the experience appears to be very dynamic and fluid by nature. I’m not sure I would recognize or even fully appreciated an “awake” mind for they are far and few between us. But for those who are experiencing various stages of wakening, you are as visible to me as I am to you.

A Little Moderation In The Comment Threads

Due to the reappearance of spam comments I have had to restrict unmoderated commenting to “Friends Only”. If you are a blog.co.uk member but not on my friends list please be patient, all comments will be accepted except span and abuse.

Or you can sens me a friends request, I accept all except those from businesses that regularly spam comment threads with plus for payday loans, fake designer stuff, viagra etc.


The Spammers are back. I just spent half an hour clearing spam comments from my blog. I used to be very lazy and let spam comments go unless they particlarly offended me (e.g. Payday loans ads and for some season Ugg Boots)

But unfortunately blog.co.uk were hit with a Google ‘spam site’ penalty which killed our traffic and proved more difficult to get rid of than syphilis.

So ignoring the links to online gambling sites and other such crap is not an option this time round. From now on the only SPAM Boggart Blog will accept is the pink stuff.
