France arrests two men suspected of plotting ‘imminent’ attack ahead of polls – weapons found.

(AFP) – French police found guns and bomb-making materials during searches of suspected terrorist bases in the southern city of Marseille on Tuesday (April 18). Two men suspected of plotting a major attack days before presidential polls were arrested, sources with inside knowledge of police operations said.

The weapons and bomb making tackle were discovered after the suspects – “radicalised) (i.e. Muslim) Frenchmen aged 23 and 29 – were taken into custody.The informants asked not to be named because they were not authorised to speak publicly.

France’s Interior Minister Matthias Fekl said the attack was panned for in the “next few days” as France gears up to vote on Sunday in the first round of a two-stage presidential election.

Photos of the two suspects have been distributed to the security teams for far-right candidate Marine Le Pen and centrist Emmanuel Macron. “The photos were passed to my security service from Thursday,” Le Pen told AFP, while an aide to Macron also confirmed his campaign team received the pictures.

Conservative candidate Francois Fillon was warned about the danger on Friday, an aide said.

France has been on high alert for more than two years following a string of terror attacks which began in January 2015, killing more than 230 people.

Polls have shown that voters are more concerned about unemployment and their spending power than terrorism or security, though analysts warn that concerns could change quickly in the event of further bloodshed.

As Lefties call Front National Nazis, French Jews Flock To Support The Party

One thing fans of multiculturalism and those left wing authoritarians who want to make us all the same in the name of diversity will never be able to get their heads round is the fact that Muslims and Jews will nevr be able to live side by side (same goes for Muslims and Hindus – notice a pattern emerging here?)

The stupidity and blindness of the left in trying to force multiculturalism on communities is producing some interesting ironies however. For example while leftie screechers wail and gnash teeth at the success of France’s Front National, calling the right wing party led by Marine Le Pen nazis and anti – Semites, France’s Jewish community are flocking to support the party because it is the only political movement in France that stands against the tide if Islamisation the Jews see as threatening to swamp them.

A 21st century Oriflamme? (look that one up, Professor) (image source)

Having topped the polls in last year’s European Election, The National Front is set to become the biggest party in France at this month’s regional elections. The French Prime Minister has accused the party of wanting to “kidnap France”

The latest polling data, which comes after it was revealed French Jews are increasingly turning to the right wing party, puts the National Front on 29 per cent, four points clear of the opposition UMP and creating a significant gap between them and the socialists on 21 per cent, according to left leaning online news site The Local.

The election on March 22nd and 29th will elect representatives in each of France’s 101 counties.

Nonna Mayer, a political scientist from Sciences Po said the party “are on the rise.”

“In the last presidential election Le Pen got 18 percent of the vote, they got 25 percent in the Euro elections and now they could get as much as between 30 and 33 percent of the vote in the départemental elections.”

Even though this election is for local, rather than national elections, the results are “vital” for the charismatic leader who has moved the party away from the anti-Semitic line her father took. For The Front National to attract Jewish vote “gives the party much more credibility and visibility,” says Mayer. “She [Le Pen] knows if you want to succeed in politics, it’s not only about the leadership, but you need a party behind it. That means the presence of the National Front in all layers of democracy in France.

Like the UKIP leader Nigel Farage, Marine Le Pen has struggled to convince voters that the party is not just about her, a respectable, polished figurehead. Like UKIP, FN have been hindered by a few disreputable candidates the constant smears and misrepresentations of the mainstream media.

Gogglebox on the past two days television

Our cartoonist Brobast got to wondering what the Gogglebox panel would have made of the past couple of days on television …


Some might say we are being deliberately provocative in view of the fact that it was cartoons mocking Islam that provoked the Charlie Hebdo atrocity. Others have castigated mainstream media for not showing the French cartoons that caused the problem.

Well your fearless Boggart Bloggers did run the Charlie covers (scroll down a few posts) because we stand for free speech, democracy and erm … something else. As for our own cartoon it should not offend anyone ad if it does, well the Boggart Blog office is at the bottom of a bog in the west Pennines.

The rest of the mainstream media are hiding their cowardice behind a pretence of respect for a religion, yet they have never shown the same level of respect to Christianity, Judaeism, Hinduism and Buddhist, all of which come in for their share of piss taking (and indeeed have followers who while totally committed, are prepared to take the piss out of their own religion,)? We are led by cowards and appeasers, cowards inform us and cowards speak on our behalf and grandly tell us that we are at fault, that we are the bigots when it is clearly the insane religion , and that preaches total conversion of all humanity with death the reward for those who refuse, and that craves total submission and demands the subjugation of the human spirit and will to the imagined and invented will of a dead ‘prophet’ as channeled by their holy men.

Those who lead us and those who set themselves up as speaking for us are frightened and afraid, the compliant media of the global cartel is afraid and frightened, the establishment is afraid and frightened and will do anything to appease the violent ones, deluding themselves that in the reckoning their cowardice will earn them indulgences. And then there is the left, too stupid to be afraid, too ignorant to question, to filled with self loathing and white guilt to stand against fanaticism and in awe of the potency of a religion that feeds on and thrives on fear and submission, when the religion of Marxism only inspires ridicule.

Fear is freezing the western nations, cowards say dont fight back, give in, try to understand them, appease and accommodate, all join hands and sing Kumbaya. And of course, as someone famous once said, the coward dies a thousand deaths and would like everyone else to be the same in order to hide their shame. The cowardly left are happy to persecute a thick footballer who was the victim of a miscarriage of justice, but are afraid to stand up to those who would destroy democracy, abolish free speech and sacrifice our civilization in the futile hope of saving their own pathetic arses.

While cowardice rules the civilized world will never know peace or prosperity, just a steady decline into dystopian chaos.

Hollande’s ex lover: Don’t kick a man when he’s down … stamp on his bollocks

hollande trierweiler
                       President Hollande and Valerie Trierweiler – happy in each other’s company                                          

Pauvre, pauvre M. Hollande, il est dans la merde profond; things just go from bad to worse for the hapless French President. With his UMP opponents in disarray (those who’re not in prison) the Socialist leader should be having an easy ride.

But the Front Nationale are topping the polls, their leader Marine Le Pen is an increasingly popular figure and Hollande’s popularity rating is the lowest for any French leader since Louis XIV lost his head over bad polling figures, the economic disintegration of the French nation becomes more apparent every day, Hollande’s sycophancy in supporting all America’s wars is going down like a lead balloon with voters.

And then when Hollande already looks down and almost out for the count, along comes his former girlfriend Valerie Trierweiler and stomps on his bollocks.

Hollande has always traded on his image as a gentle, if somewhat befuddled looking left wing intellectual. Alas, the lovely Valerie has just trashed that image in a new book, Merci pour ce moment (Thank You For This Moment), a tell-all memoir chronicling her seven years at his side.

In her words Hollande is presented as mean, cold, curmudgeonly, mean spirited, with a penchant for offensive sexist put-downs and snobbish contempt, a serial liar in love and in politics and a media-obsessed egomaniac. And that’s just Chapter One.

“He campaigned as the enemy of the rich, but the truth is that he despises the poor,” she writes, recalling their single visit with her working-class family at their council house, in which Hollande looked “bored to tears – he would rather have dined with his sophisticated Parisian friends than with us”. The President shows a nasty streak with his joke that “all those Massonneaus [her maiden name] aren’t very pretty, are they?” In a further damning revelation, she says he calls the poor “the toothless” and is “very satisfied” with his own witticism.

This kind of attack has far greater potential to harm him than political ineptitude. The French may have been willing to forgive the affairs – with Trierweiler while he was in a long term relationship with Ségolène Royal, his partner of 29 years and the mother of his four children; with the actress Julie Gayet, the perfectly typecast luvvie supporter with the Marilyn Monroe figure while he was with Trierweiler and who knows how many others, they might forgive the deceitfulness Hollande must have a talent for in order to simultaneously run several relationships but will they forgive his hypocrisy?

French politicians whose private life attracts adverse attention usually claim that the personal should be separate from the political, and that private behaviour holds the key to public conduct. But Trierweiler’s revelations about The Presidents attitude to the poor are so toxic it’s hard to see how Holland can survive.

Unflattering anecdotes about the President’s macho side have been picked up gleefully by the press and will be particularly damaging with women voters who are traditionally more sympathetic to the political left. These stories include accounts of Hollande’s dismissive comments made to Valérie just before a State dinner, that “it does take you a long time to look that beautiful, but then, that’s the only thing that’s expected of you”.

That little snark was overheard by many guests.

And she will have caused Hollande even greater damage with her claim that he instructed her to be given high doses of tranquilisers, shortly after they had split, in order to keep her in hospital and out of his way.

As an ex – journalist herself, Trierweiler is nothing if not media savvy. When she started to write her book she disconnected from the internet, and never sent anything by email. The manuscript was secretly printed in Germany by an independent publishing house, and Hollande only knew of its existence last Tuesday. It’s all reminiscent of the operation surrounding the ‘hatchet job’ books published by Mikael Blomqvist in the ‘Millennium Trilogy’ novels.

According to reports in French media, the President dispatched aides all over France to try to get hold of an advance copy, the effort failed – just as he failed to get hold of the fateful issue of Closer magazine with pictures of him astride a motor scooter last outside Julie Gayet’s apartment, which kicked off the whole debacle, just as every policy he has implemented during his two and a half year Presidency has failed.

Sometime – just sometimes mind – you’ve got to love the taxman

Mostly taxmen are a breed apart, the sociopathic spawn of medieval witch finders and Nazi concentration camp guards. Sometimes though, you just want to give them a big hug. like today for instance:

France’s tax authorities have launched a 1 billion euro tax claim against evil empire technology giant Google, it was reported today.

It follows French financial inspectors searching the Paris offices of the internet and turn-you-into-a-cyborg technology giant in June 2011 as it investigated their accounting.

Google has reduced the amount of tax it pays in France by channelling its revenue through a Dutch-registered intermediary and then to a Bermuda-registered holding, Google Ireland Limited, before reporting it in low-tax Ireland.

France is currently one of the highest taxed countries in the world, with the top rate of income tax standing at 75 per cent and the socialist regime decided Google’s tax avoidance tactics just weren’t Le Criquet.

I’d like to think it is also retribution for Google’s chairman Gauleiter Erik Schmidt saying the company should not have to pay tax on profits in fact governments should bung Google money for the benefit they bring to society by suppressing free speech and perverting search results.


"Tax The Rich" Hollande redefines rich.

Those who think taxing the rich is a great idea should learn to be careful what they wish for.

France’s new socialiste President, François Hollande whose promises to tax the rich won hiom the election is now starting to reveal what he means by rich.

Obviously the elite aren’t rich. For a start President Hollande is not short of a Euro or two. Elitists incomes might run into millions of Euros a year but they have their mansions, penthouse apartments and luxury yachts to keep up, the salaries of their servants, comfortable apartments for their mistresses, sports cars for their wives tennis coaches, and of course foie gras and caviar does not come cheap.

So when you take into account how much it costs to be rich most rich people are technically borderline paupers.

No (Non), those greedy selfish bastards who deserve to be taxed to pay for M. Hollande’s utopia are those whose lifestyles appear modest. He has announched a plan to tax computer screens because everybody who has a computer is living a life of luxury.

Another tax on wealth the French President may be considering in order to fund his profligate spending plans while meeting deficit reduction targets imposed by Germany is a travel tax which will require anyone who owns a pair of shoes to pay a weekly levy. Private planes and limousines will continue to be registered in Luxembourg and Andorra.

President Hollande dismissed talk of a pomposity tax as ridiculous. Such a tax would be pointless, he told Boggart Blog, nobody in France would be pompous enough to pay such a tax.

Another French Hopeful With His Foot In His Mouth

To a delirious crowd of around 20,000, the Socialist candidate cited The Bard as he promised to cast off the ennui of the Nicolas Sarkozy era with a new wave of egalitarian idealism. In dismisssing Sarko the Gnome Pesidency as sans balls, sans brains and sans achievements Mr Hollande told the crowd, was best summed up by Shakespeare’s great words: “They failed because they did not start with a dream.”

Now you might well think that quoting an English poet to a French audience was what landed the socialiste candidate in le merde but no, what got hom into trouble was the Shakespeare loving French googled the phrase to find out which play it was from. And it turned out not to be Shakespearem at all, or at least not THAT Shakespeare.

The author of those words is book reviewer Nicholas Shakespeare who though descended from the fame family as his more illustrious namesake is very much alive.

Boggart Blog has these words from Shakespeare to console M. Hollande. “You can’t win ’em all son.”

That’s not William Shakespeare of course but Ernie Shakespeare, sports correspondent of the Accrington Argos as he commisserated with the losing finalist in annual Oswaldtwistle and District meat pie eating championship.
