Keir Starmer – UK’s own Member of the Parade of Clowns

 

Parade of Clowns, UK Edition

by Mustang

We all remember the United Kingdom’s Jeremy Corbin, the rabid communist labor leader who served up a Stalinist agenda for five agonizing years.  There isn’t much I can say about Corbin beyond a vitriolic screed, so I won’t dwell on him; just to say, “good riddance” and “it’s about time.”

Corbin’s replacement as Opposition Leader is a 57-year old member of Parliament from a London suburb by the name of Keir Starmer, KCB, QC, who proves the point made by Vladimir Lenin, “Give us a child for eight years and it will be a Bolshevik forever.”

His parents were die-hard socialists and raised him in that vein.  In fact, Sir Starmer began labor party activism when he was still a teenager and a proud member of the East Surrey Young Socialists.  His curriculum vitae is quite impressive.  He possesses two degrees in law specializing in human rights.

Starmer received an appointment to serve on the Queen’s Counsel in 2002 (aged 39), served as a human rights advisor with the Northern Ireland Policing Board, and named as QC of the year by the UK legal directory.  He first entered Parliament in 2015 and served in the labor party’s shadow government in several capacities, including Brexit.  He assumed his new post as Opposition Leader in January 2020.

In the UK, pundits regard Starmer as “soft left.”  I suppose such a designation takes the edge away from being a communist, if one believes that the purpose of socialism is the attainment of a communist state.  I am one of those people, but only because Vladimir Lenin told us that.

Starmer supports social ownership and investment in public services, which comes as no surprise, and supports doing away with university tuition fees.  There is much about Starmer that would warm the heart of the American communist Bernie Sanders.  He too wants to tax the rich into oblivion, tax corporations out of existence, and demands more government spending, not less.

What bothers me most about Starmer is his position of never deploying the British military in defense unless first sanctioned by the United Nations.  God help the British people.

I could certainly agree with a debate on whether the UK ought to have become engaged in the Iraq War … I question our own involvement in that debacle, but if there is to be a decision to avoid foreign entanglements, it must involve the British people only, not people from other lands who hate the British almost as much as they hate Americans.

That Starmer doesn’t understand where his loyalties should lie is very disturbing.  I hope the British people find it disturbing, as well.  I’m sure Sir Starmer is well meaning in his beliefs (which defy logic), but as we all know, good intention is the pavement on the road to perdition.

As an American, it is comforting to realize that our clown parade isn’t the only game in town.  I do not understand why anyone in the UK would vote for a labor party candidate, but then I’m still puzzled about how we ever ended up with an Obama/Biden ticket in 2008.  The Lord must love morons … he made so many of them.

Brits Labour Party plans to abolish and confiscate private schools

 

Best hustle out to your local theatre and catch “Downton Abby” for a view of the last vestige of the once great Great Britain. If Brexit was a problem for the UK and Boris Johnson, let’s look at what Corbyn’s Labor party has in store-

Nigel Farage: “I’ve no doubt, Mr McDonnell, you all want us to be dragged down to the bottom in your new Marxist state.”

Boris Johnson

Leaders of elite private schools have vented outrage over Labour’s plan to abolish them, branding the policy “incredulous” [sic] and an “act of unprecedented vandalism”.

Jeremy Corbyn’s party voted at their conference to integrate all private schools into the state sector if they win the next election.

….

“It doesn’t feel like I’m living in the UK any more,” he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

Properties and funds held by private schools would be “redistributed democratically and fairly” across the country’s educational institutions as part of the reforms.

Private schools’ charitable status would also be scrapped and universities forced to limit their intake of privately educated students to just 7 per cent – the same proportion as in the wider population.

Boris Johnson also called it a “pointless attack” on the education system, adding that it was based on a “long-buried socialist ideology”.

Mr Adshead, head of the fee-paying Old Vicarage School in Derbyshire, said: “For me it seems quite incredulous [sic] that in 2019 I’m discussing whether my private land will be seized and then redistributed.” More at Independent UK

The British S/he Post Mortem Crisis

 

New Crisis in British Prisons

by Mustang       (Our man on the beat in the UK)

 

From the Daily Mail, it has been reported that 20% of deaths inside women’s prisons were … wait for it … men.  Wow.  As far as problems go, it doesn’t get more complex than this.  My first unanswered question was, why are these people dying?  No, that isn’t what this article was all about.  It was all about understanding the “unique problems of transgender inmates.”  And then I learned that men dying inside women’s prisons is a statistician’s nightmare.  How on earth can any respectable prison statistician analyze data when no one is quite sure whether an inmate is a he, or a she?

The British prison system is grappling with the problem right this instant.  According to advocate Nicola Williams of Fairplay For Women (no, Peter, not foreplay for women), it’s impossible to tell what’s going on.  “Political correctness must not lead to women and transgender inmates having distinct needs ignored,” she said in an interview.

Right.

Between 2016 and 2018, there were 23 deaths of women in UK prisons.  Four of these women were men.  Personal note … and I’m not sure I can speak English any plainer than this: if four were men, then they weren’t women.  Two of these “women” were born men.  One of these had no previous diagnosis of gender confusion.  The last fellow must have been a very efficient scam-artist.

It is true that our world is becoming increasingly more complicated, and this problem within British prisons may be a truly complex.  On the other hand, it is also possible that prison managers are making the problem more difficult that it need be—as some things are actually quite simple.

Stephen Wood/ Karen White

Stephen Wood was convicted of raping women on two separate occasions; changing his name to Karen White doesn’t make him a female, but that’s what he did, and that’s how he ended up in a woman’s prison.  No matter, Stephen/Karen was found dead in his/her cell, so the problem now is a statistical one: how does the statistician classify Stephen/Karen in prison records?  It is true that Stephen pulled off a masterful trick in avoiding men’s prisons where rapists become butt-boys for other inmates; what we don’t know is whether Stephen/Karen “self-identified” as a lesbian.

Presently, the United Kingdom is holding 139 “transgender” prisoners … half of these are in prison for having committed sex crimes.

I know, I know.

Prince Harry’s Wife Meghan Motivates ‘Sex Workers’

 

Thank Goodness

by Mustang    (Our man on the beat in the UK)

 

The Americans are not alone in the world of the bizarre.  True, we have Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (AO-C), and one might conclude that, from a political perspective, we’ve reached the outer limits of the Twilight Zone.  But joining us there is our British cousins, led by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.  Well, she’s not actual royalty … only married to someone who is.  Meghan is (ugh) one of us —and someone who looks disturbingly similar to AO-C.

 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

 

Rachel Meghan Markle, aged 37-years, is a “retired American actress” who became a member of the British royal family upon her marriage to Prince Harry.  Until recently, Harry was one of my favorite characters in London.  I have no idea what he was thinking when he popped the question and now, he’ll spend the rest of his life waking up next to an AO-C look-a-like.  It will be hell on earth.

I won’t suggest that Meghan is a flake—only that she’s about two bubbles off plumb.  Markle-Mountbatten-Winsor recently demonstrated this when she dispatched personal messages to sex workers by writing notes on bananas.  It gives a whole new meaning to the term “mentioned in dispatches.”  She inscribed nothing deep, you understand —only motivating: such messages as “You are special,” adding little hearts on either side.  Well, she’s right about that.  Sex workers are special.

Duchess Meghan was inspired, she said, as a by-product of Michelle Obama’s school lunch program where an unidentified woman wrote empowering words to children … as if getting a free meal wasn’t enough.

 

Michelle Obama’s school lunch program

I honestly don’t know what more I can say about this … other than sending bananas (as opposed to oranges) along to sex workers has an odd ring to it.  I do not have personal knowledge of all Meghan’s messages, of course … but could concoct a few of my own —and I’m sure our readers could as well.  I was thinking, for example, [heart] Never negotiate [heart], or perhaps [heart] John Smyth-Jones, QC, 0800-740-2220 [heart].

Well, at least we Americans aren’t standing alone anymore.

Are the free societies of the world doomed to fail?

 

The man MI5 didn’t think was dangerous: Killer used gym to radicalize youngsters, worked out with a terror suspect on the FBI watch list and was reported to the security services again LAST SUMMER. So goes the headline.
Today a guest post by Mustang:

An interesting recent article in the UK’s Daily Mail headlined as “MI-5 and Yard: We had him and let him go: a shocking admission that 2-years before London Bridge jihadi maniac went on rampage.”  What is missing is the logical follow-on subtitle: negligent officials arrested and charged in the deaths of innocents.

To my way of thinking, this is a large part of the problem: free societies never seem able to hold their elected officials and bureaucrats accountable for their gross incompetence.  I am wondering … why not?  Do they, or do they not, work for “the people?”

According to the report, “Khuram Butt, 27, was flagged up because of his extremist views and his case was examined by Scotland Yard and the security services.  A call was later made to the anti-terror hotline, warning of Butt’s increasingly extremist behavior, but officials downgraded the investigation because they did not suspect the married father of two was planning an attack.”

As it turns out, the dismissal was incompetent in the extreme, or if you prefer, criminally wanton due to thoughtless political correctness.  Similar instances have occurred in the United States, a few of which were honor killings of female children by their own father, some of whom have never been brought to justice.

What does it take to switch on the light —to finally move against what to me is an obvious conspiracy by too many extremists who seek to murder us.

We can do better than this, yet we sit back and allow un-named officials to draw their fat salaries and hefty pensions even after making horrendously consequential decisions.  It makes the admonition “see something—say something” laughable.  Perhaps what has happened to us is exactly what we deserve —for our complacency.

What is your point of view?

Polygamous families in UK to get more benefits

It is as if all of Europe cannot capitulate to the heathen influx of so-called “refugees” fast enough. Forget Western culture, forget that there is no way these countries can sustain the barbarians. Forget the groping and raping of European women. Forget Christianity. The cash flow cannot exit fast enough.

Men with more than one wife will qualify for extra benefits under the new welfare system, according to official House of Commons research.

Under the universal credit welfare system, which is not expected to be fully introduced until 2021, polygamous households will be rewarded with higher benefits, The Sunday Times reports.

In the UK, it is illegal to marry more than one person.

Polygamous marriages, largely confined to Muslim families, are only recognised in Britain if they took place in countries where they are legal, such as Middle Eastern states, Pakistan and Zambia.

There no official figures but it is estimated that there may be as many as 20,000 polygamous marriages in the British Muslim community.
