  1. “It’s knowing they’re foreign, that makes them so mad!”

    (Flanders and Swan)

  2. There is a certain type of person who cares what foreigners think about us.

    They usually laud other countries leaders or a specific policy/arrangement.

    I can’t help thinking these people should be viewed with suspicion and seen as slightly naive.

    You all know what type of person I’m talking about. ThEuro don’t actually live or have experience of other nations but, they are better than the UK.

    How narrow their view is…..

  3. Rob Harries,

    “You all know what type of person I’m talking about. ThEuro don’t actually live or have experience of other nations but, they are better than the UK.”

    Yeah. I’ve learnt to not take them at all seriously. Sort of people who talk about marvellous French towns because they’ve only been to Saumur and Beaune rather than the towns around Paris.

  4. You should have been around in the 1970s: foreigners were rolling in the aisles back then, Britain was a world class joke. We all acquired a thick skin and got on with it.

  5. We are a joke that has saved Europe’s fucking bacon on two–three– occasions (if you count that sack of Gallic shite Napoleon). At vast cost to ourselves.

    Let the scum of Europe’s cultural Marxist elite laugh. They have little to laugh about other then the failings of the stupid cucks they lord it over.

  6. Rob Harries has it spot on. I wrote about this the other day:

    This is why I find the self-righteous posturing of London’s elites over Brexit so irritating. They may share pro-EU views with their counterparts in mainland Europe, but they have no idea why. If they did, they’d understand why so many people don’t share their views. They hope that by writing puff-pieces about pro-EU attitudes on the mainland while sneering at their own people they will ingratiate themselves with the former and show themselves to be superior than the latter.

    And no, the Europeans aren’t laughing at us, most simply don’t care. The only people obsessing over Brexit are Brits and a handful of EU-junkies in Brussels.

  7. That jeering sound you can hear is Europe laughing at Britain

    Punctuated by occasional screams as another jihadi self-detonates.

  8. @Rob,

    Didn’t you notice that a number of acts of peace have been perpetrated in Britain just lately?

  9. Yes, well aware of them. I doubt Andrew’s friends in France are aware of the ones near them, or if they are they’d have trained themselves to ignore and then forget them.

  10. the jeering to the extent that there is any is really just premature schadenfreude based on the prevailing view that without EU membership a country is doomed. Not doomed in the economic trading sense but going to miss out on the glorious future of the EU as a world power.

  11. I blame the parents and early school teachers for not teaching them what those fables like The Ass and he Master and other similar grass is greener stories really meant.

  12. Not just that, BiND. It’s all so 8th grade. Their mommy didn’t teach them to ignore what the other kids say.

  13. Why is it that those least affected by our exit from the Euro (why else would they be so desperate for us to fail?) are those most keen to stay in it?

    These people are passionate about looking after us, as long as we obey their orders. If we don’t, we get their boot on the back of our neck, grinding our face in the shit.

  14. “We are a joke that has saved Europe’s fucking bacon on two–three– occasions (if you count that sack of Gallic shite Napoleon). At vast cost to ourselves.”

    Four, if you count Louis XIV. After WW2, the French and German elites skilfully exploited the naive and idealistic notion of a united Europe to frame a joint Franco-German hegemony of the continent. In essence, they decided that they could never achieve continental dominance singly but that they could do so together. The French kid themselves that the Franco-German partnership is one of equals, when it is more like a French mahout perched on the back of a wilful German elephant that largely goes its own way. So we now have the Fourth Reich, which has achieved one of Germany’s war aims in both world wars – a European customs union.

  15. It’s just boilerplate metropolitan journosneer from Rawnsley, whose massive face and gigantic Muppet-like hinge mouth should appear in illustrated dictionaries beside the word “midwit”.

    A common midwit fallacy is their apparent unexamined belief that there’s an infinite amount of ruin in a nation, or a “free trade area”, which is why they can say things like:

    Angela Merkel is, by common consent, the titan of European politics.

    Which is like being voted Captain of the Titanic. Gluckwunshe!

    Perhaps it’s because they’re journalists, and therefore don’t believe in numbers, but they seem to assume there’s no limit to the amount of eco-nonsense, foreign dependents, bureaucracy and unfunded future liabilities you can load onto Europe’s shoulders. They either don’t see the cliff, or imagine the clown car will develop the power of flight by the time it careens off the edge.

    Though, to be fair, politicians believe the same thing. Mrs Merkel – who is responsible for the biggest rape of German womanhood since the Red Army – is a prime example of this almost magical thinking. For she isn’t just poisoning Europe’s demographic well, she’s also actively sabotaging her own country’s future ability to keep the lights on, through expensive inanities like her anti-energy policies and Paris Accord mania.

    Like an idiot adding umpteen extension cords to a single power socket, they’re going to be surprised when it all catches fire.

  16. Hang about. They’re laughing at us, but annoyed that we’re not proposing to do more to allow their own refugees to stay here after Brexit? You know, those millions of Europeans (not 3rd worlders) who come here because it’s the only realistic chance they’ve got to make a go of things?

    One of Europe’s principal exports is its people, and they’re laughing at us?

    Well, on the other hand, I suppose we export plenty of Anglos who’ve given up on the place.

  17. Britons split their support between the parties in such a way that there is no consensus in parliament about the terms on which Britain should leave

    Oh, FFS. Individual British voters and politicians have differing views on our future direction. Allow this sort of anarchy to flourish, and we’ll end up having to make choices between different tv channels and varieties of olive oil in the supermarket.

    What we’ve got is a parliament with a huge mandate to leave the EU. The details can be argued about as the process continues, and in future as well (that being the whole point).

  18. Meanwhile, in Guardianland, NoNukesPlease has a magic crystal revelation:

    On the whole many European countries have evolved intellectually, socially, religiously and economically, the UK hasn’t. The EU are a collection of thinkers and dreamers who look forward to the evolution of the continent to an even higher plane of though and existence, even though Spain still has bullfighting, sadly

  19. Well, on the other hand, I suppose we export plenty of Anglos who’ve given up on the place.

    But, I expect, many of them who have gone to Europe have gone because the weather here is pretty shit. Most of those I know (anecdata alert) who have emigrated for work have gone to other Anglosphere countries or to the Middle East.

  20. “though Spain still has bullfighting, sadly”

    And France has fois gras

    and Germany didn’t have enough rape of its own so its imported some more

    And Italy and Greece have massive corruption

    Etc,etc.

    This NoNutsPlease must be a real chump.

    What does he call his house? The Memoryhole?

  21. “And Italy and Greece have massive corruption”

    Not to mention Spain, Portugal, France….The CAP is corruption incarnate.

    As for the Graun commenter, why doesn’t this cretin leave the country ‘it’ despises so much? Ah, no marketable skills?

  22. Poor Andrew, he has such low self-esteem that he is tormented by imaginary foreigners laughing at him.

  23. Fair point, SE, the weather in this country is bloody obnoxious. Nevertheless, as someone who feels pangs for a gentler climate, I can’t say any urge I have to move abroad is entirely about the weather. Sure, there’s plenty of all sorts of awfulness just about everywhere else, but if it’s not one’s own country then one doesn’t have to care.

    I think Tebbitt’s (PBUH) cricket test might be added to: you’re English if you’re bemused by foreigners laughing at you. Shivers running down the spine at the sound of a RR Merlin engine powering a Spitfire for bonus points.

  24. While Lord Tebbit is absolutely my favorite ex-Union Leader, and right about most things, I can’t agree on the cricket test.

    English teams can be pretty dull in a way that the Windies simply weren’t capable of. Same with Pakistan.

  25. Nobody’s laughing at you little ones.We saved them from Hitler singlehanded so don’t listen to all that talk about Russian tank battles. They just can’t stand our endless superiority! And now that those intelligent true Brit anti socialists have pushed up property prices so that people naturally vote for them, only to find the property market’s broken (as of Feb 17) so the next generation of greedy fucks cant get in on the scam and so then vote for National Suicide by Brexit , the sickening foreigners see their chance to take the piss.But we don’t need their Free Trade Area, do we? What can go wrong with jumping off a cliff?

  26. “Leader” maybe a bit high, but he was certainly a union leader without capitals. Even led a strike once.

    Much later, after having de-Stalined the unions, the press barons requested that he help extricate them from the more bonkers aspects of Fleet Street deals; deals made when the unions were much more powerful. Tebbitt said no, and don’t be such drips next time.

  27. You are scum Reedy.

    Mighty tank battles–yeah after Uncle Joe’s best mate Adolf turned on him. Such ingratitude after Unc Joe got his socialist scum to do everything they could to demoralise the French in 1940. And supplied petrol and explosives to their German fellow socialists.

    Bollocks to your endless repetition of your property price bubble shite–caused by statist meddling over decades.

    As for your socialist standard treason over Brexit–well Grandpa Death Corbyn doesn’t agree with you does he.

    Also bollocks to your corrupt little in-house “free trade” ( since when did redscum like you care about that–since Brexit Delusional syndrome likely) empire –it is a customs union that exists so jumped up middle class bureaucrats can exploit both Europeans and keep third-worlders poor.

    Get back to the 50s you useless bastard.

  28. DBC Reed,

    Brexit is about democracy.

    With the right policies it can also lead to greater prosperity. Such policies are not a given of course, but at least British people can elect those who make them.

    And even if prosperity were actually reduced, Brexit would still be the way to go.

    Because it’s about democracy, you see.

  29. @wb
    There is nothing democratic about referendums. We would have the reintroduction of hanging and the recriminalisation of homosexuals if referendums were nominated by the people and more frequent. More to the point we would have deported all people of Caribbean origin at the time of ,first, Sir Oswald Mosley’s Notting Hill Riots and then Enoch Powell at the time of the Rivers of Blood Speech.
    Now the Tories have to placate the UKIP hardliners who have been lured to vote Tory by extremist promises to” take control” which they cant legitimately keep.
    BTW The 50’s when British workers received a 25% real wage rise (ie non inflationary) leading to Macmillan’s ‘You’ve never had it so good’ speech, saw the building of New Towns, a motorway network, mass collective bargaining, a full complement of nationalised industries including two State airlines and all the Statist apparatus people on here turn their noses up at.
    Public school slobs with the cover of state school slob Margaret Thatcher persuaded a gullible public to trash all this for the bribe of ever rising house prices (which officially came to an end with this year’s housing White Paper hence the gathering , widespread discontent).

  30. @DBC Weed

    ‘true Brit anti socialists have pushed up property prices so that people naturally vote for them, only to find the property market’s broken (as of Feb 17) so the next generation of greedy fucks cant get in on the scam and so then vote for National Suicide by Brexit ‘

    Hang about, Weed, you’re mixing your bullshit here. I thought only old folks had voted for Brexers, not ‘the next generation of greedy fucks’?

  31. @Weed

    ‘. We would have the reintroduction of hanging and the recriminalisation of homosexuals if referendums were nominated by the people and more frequent. ‘

    Just wait on – coming soon to a Bradford near you.

  32. “We would have the reintroduction of hanging and the recriminalisation of homosexuals if referendums were nominated by the people and more frequent. More to the point we would have deported all people of Caribbean origin at the time of ,first, Sir Oswald Mosley’s Notting Hill Riots and then Enoch Powell at the time of the Rivers of Blood Speech.”

    Yep. No doubt we would. And the UK would have been a better place for it. But, of course, it needs being told what to do by c*nts like you.

  33. Oh, and the Notting Hill riots I remember were the one’s turned W11 into a battlefield after Carnival*. And the spate of steaming on the Tube, that weekend.

    *Carnival – a traditional British custom of suspending law & order in one of the districts of it’s capital for a weekend at the end of summer. Various attempts have been made to extend the celebrations to other areas of London. (See Tottenham)

  34. “BTW The 50’s when British workers received a 25% real wage rise (ie non inflationary) leading to Macmillan’s ‘You’ve never had it so good’ speech, saw the building of New Towns, a motorway network, mass collective bargaining, a full complement of nationalised industries including two State airlines and all the Statist apparatus people on here turn their noses up at.”

    Back to the 50s with Pathe–logical News.

    There is very often (the Pol Pots excepted) a crappy Vegas-style honeymoon with socialist evil Reedy. While the cunts are spending all the stolen money. As has been pointed out on the blog before lots of piss poor Venezuelan peasants are now the proud owners of giant screen TVs thanks to Chavez handing out the proceeds of socialist theft. A shame that the leccy is only on 2 hours a day and people will be away for 60 days at a time doing their compulsory field labour to try and stave off socialist famine. In a country floating on oil.

    The 50s were no different in the UK. The fuckwit nationalisations coasted on past glories and with slow techno-change it looked for a while as if the mixed economy bullshit might actually work. Ditto the NHS using conscientious personnel left over from private systems.

    But once the next generation of arrogant leftist management parasites arrived with the 1960s Shit City became the only destination and we are now coasting through the suburbs of that Hell-hole just prior to our hitting the bumpers.

  35. Wow, a lookadat, Mr Ecks

    “Shit City became the only destination and we are now coasting through the suburbs of that Hell-hole just prior to our hitting the bumpers”

    I know you live right on that razor’s edge, telling how it is on the internet, passim, but you’re going a big dark, there Mr Ecks

    What, tell us, can we do to prevent “that Hell-hole” in your bleak vision of the future?

  36. @ Mr Ecks
    The 50s saw a massive rise in real incomes *as a result* of the Tories denationalising steel and much of road transport and scrapping lots of planning restrictions and red tape. Economic growth was mostly in steel, road transport and the industries that had never been nationalised because they were not “commanding heights of the economy”, such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, vehicle manufacture.
    Please don’t fall for DBC Reed’s suggestio falsi – the 1945-51 and 1964-70 Labour governments both had much poorer economic growth records *despite* printing money asnd borrowing from the future to puff up demand in the short term.
