Report Predicts Everyone Will Be a Sexy Millionaire by 2050

The Kinks one recorded a song titled ‘Everyone’s In Showbiz, Everyone’s a Star’ and the world’s greatest talentless wanker, Andy Warhol, predicted that ‘in the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes. History is full of failed predictions from the Oracle at Delphi through Nostradamus, Mother Shipton and just about every twentieth century stargazer and futurologist who ever found an audience.

It isn’t just psychics and fortune tellers of course. When I was young there was here in the UK a TV program titled Tomorrows World which looked at the latest technological advances and newly launched gadgets and predicted how we would live in the future. One famous prediction led us to believe by the trun of the millennium we would all be zooming around in private hovercraft.

Its 2016 now and I’m still waiting, where’s my fucking hovercraft?

“Britain and the World in 2050”, a report published by the Adam Smith Institute, predicts that teenagers will be millionaires in the future and will afford the same living standards that wealthy people do today. It also predicts everyone will be good looking.

Despite the growing gap between the rich and poor, Adam Smith Institute president Madsen Pirie predicts economic growth of two percent a year will leave the younger generation richer.

Machines will take over the production of food and clothes and will run households, suggest Pirie.

Look at the first syllable of Mr. Pirie’s forename and you get a clue as to the worth of this report. With central banks and increasingly the commercial banks looking at negative interests rates to restart the economies of the developed world we are looking at a modern version of serfdom as our financial future

The Rweeted Reactions Of Leftie Celebs To Election Result Were Priceless

I’m still not actually thinking due to events not related in any way to the election. So here’s another post full of content gleaned from elsewhere.

Celebrity lefties resposnes to the conservative election victory.

@Kevin Maguire
Most terrifying of all is the Tories won as the Nasty Party. What does that say about Britain?

Well Kev, as it was you dubbed them the nasty party I guess it says Britain thinks you and your ludicrous pastiche of a newspaper are irrelevant

@charlottechurch
The politics of fear is the politics of control and we’ve given the reigns to the bogey men.

As you’ve blown most of your millions on trying to be a rock chick Charile, I suppose you’re afraid of benefit cuts.

@jk_rowling
I remember single parenthood under the Tories and @Gingerbread’s going to be very important in the next 5 years.

So what are you saying JK, that all single women are so stupid that having no job and few skills they’ll celebrate the election result by getting up the duff? Was it the fault of the conservatives that you got pregnant?

@OwenJones84
Don’t mourn. Organise. And this time, let’s actually mean it.

That is actually coming from a prepubescent pustule who can’t even organise his own fake accent so we can tell if he’s pretending to be a Cheshire posh boy, an Oxbridge elitist or a skanky Mank.

Looking over them brings to mind a line from that brilliant American satirist P J O’Rourke (PJ, being American, uses ‘liberalism’ in the sense we use ‘loony left’:

“At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child — miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats.”
― P.J. O’Rourke

Well Bugger Me With The Blunt End Of a Ragman’s Trumpet

I’ve never taken much notice of the ‘reality’ TV show Big Brother or its even more evil twin Celebrity Big Brother but I could not avoid the latest and most stupid to date “Waaaaaaycism” incident.

A short fat man who used to be in Coronation Street was reportedly telling a story about when he was working in panto with former heavyweight boxer Frank Bruno. Big Frank (6’4″) and the short fat actor (about 5’3″) got into a heated discussion. And the story rambled on until the actor said something like ‘The last thing someone like me wants is a confrontation with a big angry negro.’

Upon hearing this a big, stupid (or perhaps partially deaf) negro Afreekaaan Amerikan named Alexander O’Neill (a celebrity whom I’m sure someone somewhere has heard of started screeching “Waaaaaaaaycism”.

“You can’t say Negro in the presence of a black man,” O’Neill wailed.

Bugger me with the blunt end of a ragman’s trumpet, Since when? We know the kind of Premiership footballers who scream “Waaaaaaaaycism” if a European player tackles them think ‘Negro’ is honky slang for ‘nigger’ but the sub Saharan African races are collectively known to anthropologists as African negros just as the European races are know as Europeans and the north African / Middle eastern ethnic groups as Arabs.

I have a few questions, the first about Mr. O’Neill: how did a man who has had his brain amputated get through immigration control. Because whatever O’Neill might once have been momentarily famous for, he’s certainly a word class idiot with a PhD in playing the victim.

Are we to take it now that niggle means to irritate a person of colour, or to call someone niggardly is to suggest they are a tight fisted black person, or night refers to the time of day that is dark suggesting black people are unenlightened or when some nutty preacher says “The end is nigh, he means the blacks are coming to kill us all. Extrapolate such thinking and we quickly see how insane (and racist) it is.

The other questions are for those who scweam and scweam “Wayyyycism” until they’re sick. ‘Do you understand that back and white are not actually races? And have you ever seen a human being who is actually black or white.

I think not. So STF up  until you can act like a human rather than a sheep OK, because if you ignore the rabid rantings of Amereeka’s Obamessiah cult and talk to people from the African continent you will learn that they find references to things African are patronising and dismissive, there are many nations and many races on the African continent. Calling them ‘African’ is rather like if someone were to lump Spanish Flamenco and Scottish reels together as European folk dancing.

A Strange Development In The Case Of Prince Andrew

Prince Andrew sex allegations: Jeffrey Epstein’s butler Alfredo Rodriguez, who stole tell-all ‘black book’, dies age 60

Alfredo Rodriguez, the butler of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, has died, and with him the location of a ‘black book’, which allegedly details “the full scope and the extent of Epstein’s involvement with underage girls”, and contact details of the businessman’s celebrity friends.

Rodriguez died at the age of 60 after suffering from mesothelioma last week, his widow Patricia Dunn told DailyMail.com.

Dunn alleges that her late husband “knew all about Prince Andrew,” who has been named in the current sex scandal centring on Epstein. Allegations levelled at the Prince are that he was supplied with a teenage girl who was used by Epstein as a “sex slave”. Buckingham Palace has denied the allegation.

The ‘black book’ that Rodriguez had in his possession is journal in which Epstein is understood to have detailed the girls which attended his properties for “massages” for him and his friends, and details of his celebrity friends and associates who had no connection with alleged offences, including Bill Clinton and Donald Trump.

from The Independent

Does it ever strike any of you as a bit more than a coincidence that so many potential witnesses in high profile scandals and corruption cases die suddenly before the case gets to court. Just sayin’

Buggeration! Blair Is Being Rehabilitated

blair-award.shtml

When I heard this morning that GQ magazine had given their prestigious previously unheard of Philanthropist of the Year awarn to Tony Blair for ‘his tireless work on behalf of charity (The charity involved being “Make Tony Blair popular again” we assume?) I thought, “Right, I’ll show those bastards, I’ll never buy their magazine again. Then I remembered I’d never bought it before. Hence my exasperation.

When Blair was improbably named the recipient of the award by GQ magazine in front of a a celebrity-packed, invited audience last night reporters present described the response as ‘muted’. That the honour was in recognition of his ‘philanthropy, establishing three charities’ (all with the goal of promoting the Tony Blair brand peace and understanding. – See ritual arse kissing in GQ)

GQ’s choice drew immediate criticism, Labour MP John Mann commented: ‘It sends the wrong message. This sort of award should go to an unsung hero who has given up their time for charity.’

Given Tony Blair’s pariah status in the UK after the deadly decision to join the US in destroying the Middle East it is hardly any surprise that he could use some good ‘PR’ back at home which raises the question, ‘How much did his ‘Tony Blair Faith Foundation’ spend on schmoozing the adjudication panel’.

And looking back to the good old days of ‘sexing’ up documents, we also have to ask did Blair called up old chum, the spin doctor of spin doctors Alistair Campbell to ‘sex up’ his pitch for the award, old Al being a recently hired employee of GQ. You really couldn’t make it up, could you?

Some unkind souls are already saying that giving the notoriously self interested Blair an award for philanthropy would be as insane and unintentionally ironic as if, for example, the Nobel Prize committee gave the peace prize to warmonger – in chief, Mr. Drone Strike himself, Barack Hussein Obama. Oh ….. erm ….. I might want to rephrase that …

Scots Wha Hae When Wallace Bled

I was amused to read this morning that a bunch of English people who cling to celebrity because they used to be talented plus Dame Judi Dench who is still talented and Helena Bonham Carter who is still my favourite fantasy (both should know better), are now so deluded they think the Scots will be so impressed by their fame as to accept guidance from a bunch of superannuated sassernachs on which way to vote in the independence referendum.

robert the bruce defeats the english at bannokburn

from The Daily Telegraph:

Sir Mick Jagger, Dame Judi Dench and Stephen Hawking have joined hundred of celebrities, artists and public figures calling on the people of Scotland to vote to stay in the union.

Over 200 public figures from sport, cinema, television and literature have written an open letter to the people of Scotland in advance of next month’s referendum which says: “Let’s stay together”.

Other signatories include Helena Bonham Carter, the actress, Tom Daley, the Olympian, and singers Dame Vera Lynn and Sir Cliff Richard.

The letter states: “We want to let you know how very much we value our bonds of citizenship with you, and to express our hope that you will vote to renew them.

“What unites us is much greater than what divides us. Let’s stay together.”

read full article in The Daily Telegraph

Is this a sign we are importing another negative trend from the USA where at election times, endorsements from people like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, George Clowney and Brad his name is rhyming slang count for more that the policies offered by various candidates.

Fortunately voters in the Scottish referendum are hard headed Scots, a fiercely independent people who don’t like being told what to do by anyone, especially The English.

So if the celebs letter is truly about keeping the union together it could turn out to be counter productive.

Personally I love Scotland and would be sad to see our nations divided, but I don’t expect the Scots to take any notice of me either. So here, my Scottish readers are words that will inspire you to follow your conscience and put Scotland first. And remember, the British Royal Family are successors of King James VI of Scotland, not Edward Longshanks.

Robert Bruce’s March To Bannockburn

Scots, wha hae wi’ Wallace bled,
Scots, wham Bruce has aften led,
Welcome to your gory bed,
Or to Victorie!

Now’s the day, and now’s the hour;
See the front o’ battle lour;
See approach proud Edward’s power-
Chains and Slaverie!

Wha will be a traitor knave?
Wha can fill a coward’s grave?
Wha sae base as be a Slave?
Let him turn and flee!

Wha, for Scotland’s King and Law,
Freedom’s sword will strongly draw,
Free-man stand, or Free-man fa’,
Let him on wi’ me!

By Oppression’s woes and pains!
By your Sons in servile chains!
We will drain our dearest veins,
But they shall be free!

Lay the proud Usurpers low!
Tyrants fall in every foe!
Liberty’s in every blow!-
Let us Do or Die!

Voter Backlash against Media UKIP Smears Is Good For Democracy

Mike Harding

One of the saddest things I have seen on the interweb of Sheeple for a long time was a post yesterday from a comedian who did very well in the 70s and 80s by presenting himself as a working class hero and man of the people. Even though Mike Harding is from a considerably poorer part of Manchester than the one I was born in, and grew up in the Lowryesque streets of Crumpsall where my family moved to green and pleasant Shropshire, in his comedy and music gigs Harding talked about shared experiences of 1950s childhood and sixties adolescence especially the agonies of adolescence because we moved back to Manchester when I was fourteen.

One would think then that somebody like Mike Harding would understand the attitudes of the working class. But no, like so many working class heros he has sold out the the politically correct luvvieocracy of the media and showbiz. There he was on his facebook page, assuming his faded celebrity gave him some kind of authority to tell people what to think, sneering at a UKIP candidate for expressing the view that working class people are sick of the media banging on about homosexuals rights and what a bigoted lot of buggers the masses are, when actually what the working class want politicians and the medias to talk about are things like jobs, immigration, the cost of living, immigration and jobs in that order.

And of course the media and politicians just take a patronising, paternalistic stance: “those things are to complicated for you oiks to be bothering your bigoted little heads with,” they say (well I’m papaphrasing.

Well I live in east Lancashire and I can tell Mike Harding that the opinion expressed by the UKIPper he is sneering at, that dislike of ‘the homosexual community’ is a view that has held sway for a long times and continues to do so.

Good to see then that voters have flicked a very big V sign to Mike Harding and the other media luvvies and in response to the smear campoaign UKIP’s poll rating has risen.

Wealthy, superior luvvies might not be able to think for themselves but the working class voters obviously can.

from The Guardian:
The media’s failure to neutralise Ukip can only be good for democracy

‘The intrusive power of the media, their capacity to lay waste the lives of ordinary people and celebrities alike, has been much aired, before and after Leveson. But there is another form of power, exercised with far greater discretion. This is the ability of the media to shape – and to limit – discussion; a capacity which has in recent weeks become conspicuously transparent, thanks to their efforts to discredit Ukip in general, and Nigel Farage in particular.

The dominant political parties and the mainstream media collusively concerted the attack on Ukip. Never has the management of what is somewhat hyperbolically called “the clash of ideas”, conducted by the opinion-formers and gatekeepers of debate, been so clear. Rarely have the tactics to maintain argument within acceptable bounds been more obvious.’

Continue reading:

I particularly liked this line from the article:

“It may be considered something of an irony that, since all the main parties are, in one way or another, conservative parties, an even more conservative party should be the object of such vilification; and this can be ascribed only to the desire to maintain a monopoly of representation by Conservatives, Labour and Liberal Democrats.”

Absofuckinglutely right.
