Racist? Of course not!

If a group of white youths heckled at, and punched a black or Asian man in the face it would instantly be classed as a "racist" assault.

Yet when an elderly white ex-serviceman is heckled at and punched by Asian or "mixed race" (mongrel) youths then, surprise surprise there is no mention of any racist element.

And if anyone finds my terminology offensive, I really don't care.

The story can be found here.

Snow - it's not only Britain which has problems

As soon as the first flakes of snow fall in Britain, the press start bashing our country, saying how we cannot manage to cope with snow when other countries always manage admirably. One example is this article in one paper today.

Germany has had disruption to several of its airports, Belgium has seen huge traffic jams, as has France - that most praised (and useless) of nations.

And on the subject of transport in snow, we should remember that the dreadful Eurostar (French-designed) has problems in snow. Predictably, the Eurostar services have been greatly reduced because of the weather this week, and in December last year these awful trains broke down on mass when snow which was falling in FRANCE caused the trains to short circuit and break down when they entered the Channel Tunnel from the FRENCH end, that was one bit of snow chaos which cannot be blamed on British lack of preparation, it was purely French incompetence.

Nationalism and animal welfare

Before I start my post, I want to emphasise the fact that I abhor ALL forms of animal cruelty and believe that animals for meat should be treated as humanely as possible, from the way they are reared, to the way they are eventually taken for slaughter to the actual slaughter itself. There is no justification for inflicting cruelty and suffering.

I believe that many (maybe even the vast majority of nationalists) stop way short of genuinely caring about animal welfare. The halal meat issue is a glaring example of this. Halal slaughter involves the animal having its throat cut whilst the slaughterer recites a Muslim prayer. The animal bleeds to death but remains fully conscious throughout the slaughter procedure. Like all nationalists and those who care about animal welfare, I find this revolting when there are more humane, less stressful ways of killing an animal for meat.

Recently, it was announced that Kentucky Fried Chicken would introduce halal meat to some of its restaurants, which prompted calls from nationalists to boycott the chain. This brings me to the point of my post. Why is it that those who claim to care about animal welfare only object to KFC on halal grounds? Obviously they don't spare a thought for the intensively produced chickens that are sold in KFC outlets, so their claims to care for animal welfare are rather hollow! I would never eat at KFC as I do not eat factory-farmed meat, whether it is halal or not.

Those whose only objection to this (see video below) is that the birds might have had their throats cut at the end of their miserable lives has no right to say they are concerned about animal welfare.

Switching to Continental time - there is no benefit

Once again the crass argument that the UK should switch to Continental time (by "Continental" time they mean the same time zone as France, not "Continental" as in Finland!)

One of the worthless arguments those in favour constantly spout is that the lighter evenings will be better for children walking home from school and there will be fewer accidents. What about the increased darkness in the morning, surely that would also be dangerous for children walking to school, rush hour traffic etc? No, they never seem to consider that.

Another, newer, argument, is that lighter evening will save on the amount of fuel used to power lighting. But what is saved in lighter evenings is lost in the darker mornings.

Why don't people tell us the REAL reason they are so devoted to Continental time? That is, they want us to be on the same time zone as a certain other country, one which starts with "F", ends in "e" and had "ranc" in the middle. Invariably, those who are pro-EU are those who think we must grovel and kowtow to the French and that everything French is superior to everything British.

If they are so fond of the hovel across the ENGLISH Channel then why don't they go there and never come back?

The Vikings beheaded by Saxons

Last year, a large number of skeletons were found in Dorset. They were Vikings who had been beheaded by local Saxons, the skulls placed to one side and the rest of the bodies dumped in a ditch.

What surprises me is that no one has come out and said that both the Saxons and Vikings were actually black and originated in Africa. That is the latest trend in brainwashing in this country, much of it being preached to schoolchildren in the guise of “Black History Month”.

Here is one example of the “Britain has always been multi-cultural and multi-racial” myth. In 1901, a skeleton was found in York with several possessions, including a bangle. This gave the find the nickname “Iron Bangle Lady”.

Tests have been carried out on the skeleton, and surprise surprise (or perhaps no surprise) – it was found to be from someone of African origin!!

I have no doubt that Romans were in North Africa and that Romans were in York, but just because a skeleton was found to have been brought up in warmer climes does not make it black! The Romans were not black!

Selling the country – to the French!

A few days ago, it was reported that the Government is planning to sell the Port of Dover – and the iconic port is expected to be snapped up by the French. Hot on the heels of that announcement came the news that the Air Sea Rescue Service, currently operated by Royal Air Force and Royal Navy Sea King helicopters, is to be contracted out to the French!

The same nation who are responsible for the much-praised but now-disgraced Eurostar train! It comes as no surprise that the recent report into the Eurostar fiasco during the pre-Christmas getaway blamed poor maintenance for the problem which saw snow short-circuiting the train’s systems, trains breaking down in the Channel Tunnel, the cancellation of services and serious disruption to the travel plans of thousands (including me!!) If the Eurostar fiasco taught me one thing, it was that I will never patronise French-operated public transport again.

I cannot join those who sing the praises of this nation I’m afraid. We had the BSE crisis, which saw British beef banned and British beef farmers facing bankruptcy, whilst French beef was freely sold despite the disease being present across the Channel. We have British fishermen operating to restricting quotas whilst the French have greater catch quotas off the British coast than our own people have. Their history is given precedence over our own history, the language we learn first in schools is their language (there are many other languages, why should so much importance be placed on the French one?)

And, to add insult to injury, we are told that we will,in future, see greater military co-operation with this most arrogant and incompetent of nations!

Will there be anything left in British ownership in our once-great country soon?

Recently, the American processed cheese specialist Kraft bought Cadbury, one of Britain’s best-loved brands. This bodes ill for the staff of Cadbury – Kraft also bought out York-based Terry’s, makers of the Chocolate Orange, closing down the York factory, causing the loss of British jobs, and moving production to Poland, where it is cheaper. Will this also be the fate of Cadbury? Will our Creme Eggs and Dairy Milk now be produced in Poznan, Wroclaw, Warsaw or anywhere else with an unpronounceable name?
