What horrors!

We do not live in an ideal world, however, but one in which profit and consumerism are rampant.

A world in which the proles get what they want, when they want it, and people benefit from providing it to them.

No wonder the Guardian’s against it all. What point in being elite if it doesn’t mean anything any more?

  1. Much if not all of modern (almost entirely middle class) Leftism is thinly disguised hatred of the working classes. All the things that the working classes do, or spend their money on, or places they go are demonised by the Left, as a proxy for demonising the working classes themselves. It used to be that they paid lip service to the historical role played by the working classes the founding of the political left, now its hardly veiled at all, indeed when the working classes vote for Brexit or Trump they get called all names under the sun. The middle class Left’s mask is slipping.

  2. Craig Murray opines:

    The Guardian newspaper has taken the art of obfuscation, false implication and the subtler forms of journalistic lying to new heights …

    The Guardian has hung its entire corporate personality on Clinton identity politics and its entire financial survival on building a new online customer base among the Clinton electorate in the USA.

  3. I like porn and Caravaggio. I like the San Giovese grape and cheap whisky. I also like expensive whisky. And Old Fashioneds. I love fish and chips. And scraps. And saveloys. And confit duck pie and lobster thermidor. And gelato. And pale ale. Im fond of G and S, adore Verdi, revere Bach, want to nut Wagner and I melt** to Shakespeare. Occasionally, I’ll indulge The Eagles, Inxs. The Cure, even. I’ve read almost all of Dickens, much of Roth. And Alistair Maclean.

    And I can *still* tell guacamole from mushy peas!

    Go figuhr!

    **sounds a bit gayer dunnit.

    Spot on.

    Labour is now the party of the public sector, metropolitans and RoPs. Working class are slowly realising this. I say slowly as one would have thought they’d realise this quicker when Toffs like Blair, Hoon, Mandelson, Millibands, Tristram Hunt etc were parachuted into their seats

  5. Some things are better with fewer people though. Imagine how much more pleasant holidays in Cornwall would be if it weren’t for the proles and their caravans blocking up the A303 every summer.

    OT

    I missed this when it was first published in the Speccie in the run-up to the GE. It a longish read so only a flavour here.

    Basically a major operation by an international law firm and NGO to smiggle through legilsation that takes away the power of parents without public scrutiny:

    A great deal of the transgender debate is unexplained. One of the most mystifying aspects is the speed and success of a small number of small organisations in achieving major influence over public bodies, politicians and officials. How has a certain idea taken hold in so many places so swiftly?

    So the question again: how did organisations with small budgets and limited resources achieve such stunning success, not just in the UK but elsewhere?

    Well, thanks to the legal website Roll On Friday, I have now seen a document that helps answer that question.

    The document is the work of Dentons, which says it is the world’s biggest law firm; the Thomson Reuters Foundation, an arm of the old media giant that appears dedicated to identity politics of various sorts; and the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex Youth & Student Organisation (IGLYO). Both Dentons and the Thomson Reuters Foundation note that the document does not necessarily reflect their views.

    The report is called ‘Only adults? Good practices in legal gender recognition for youth’.

    I’m not going to tell you what I think of the report, or the agenda it sets out. I’m not going to pass comment on it or its authors. I’m just going to try to summarise its nature and contents.

    A major international law firm has helped write a lobbying manual for people who want to change the law to prevent parents having the final say about significant changes in the status of their own children. That manual advises those lobbying for that change to hide their plans behind a ‘veil’ and to make sure that neither the media nor the wider public know much about the changes affecting children that they are seeking to make. Because if the public find out about those changes, they might well object to them.

    My favourite Bond quote is from Never Say Never Again

    “Q: Good to see you Mr Bond, things have been awfully dull around here…Now you’re on this, I hope we’re going to have some gratuitous sex and violence!

    James Bond: I certainly hope so too.”

  8. There are some revelations which simply sweep one’s preconceptions away. Gone are images of the Ringstraße, fragrant tokay wines in green-stemmed Bohemian glasses and the wlatzes of Strauss and Lehar, replaced by ugly thoughts of practitioners of uncertain calling with dirty fingernails and tattered salacious postcards.

  9. Off topic but I’ve just done one of those stupid online tests. “How communist are you?”

    I scored 8/100

    I’m worried. 8? Am I turning into a red?

  10. Also off topic

    Ok Dave, they’ll be round your gaff in the morning.

    How wonderful, makes one smile
    – Queen BANS Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from using lucrative ‘Sussex Royal’ brand that they hoped to use to build new lives because ‘they simply cannot sell themselves as Royals’

    – Left got what they demanded: Shining some light on CPS & Plod regarding slapper’s suicide
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8010251/Ex-CPS-chief-defends-prosecutors-Caroline-Flack-court-case.html

    Twatter must have been busy after these:

    – Nick Ferrari brands it “insanity” to blame the media for Caroline Flack’s death after a petition was started in her name to introduce stricter laws around press conduct
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vtU6Ppt3Hw

    The hypocrisy is unbelievable with these people. If it were a man that had done the same thing the man would’ve been locked up straight away

    I doubt there would be all this media sympathy if someone like Tommy Robinson topped himself because of the years of malicious lies spread by the media and our political class

    Again, just like with Phillip Schofield, this lady killing herself has received far more media coverage than the grooming gang scandal ever did

    – Far-Right thug?
    It’s alright to beat your wife as long as you don’t make her bleed or bruise her, and she should obey her husband

  13. ‘they simply cannot sell themselves as Royals’

    Sure they can. The Queen has no authority in Los Angeles.

    She can see he’s no longer a prince and all the rest of the boondangles that he’s retained. Megan won’t like being married to a commoner if she’s a princ…oh. Hang on a minute…

  14. “Sure they can. The Queen has no authority in Los Angeles.”

    The point being that anyone can call themselves a Prince in LA if they like, whether anyone there takes any notice is more about whether the place they are supposed to be a Prince of agrees or not.

  15. ”London rapper Dave (no, me niether) has won a Brit Award and changed the lyrics of one his songs performed at the event saying: “Grenfell victims still need accommodation”

    And the beeb thought this was so important that it warranted being placed as top story on Newsnight.

  16. Only in the Daily Mail (Caroline Flack article):
    “And more than 120 domestic homicides were prosecuted without any victim evidence, he said.”
    Astonishing…

  17. I’ll tell you something else, Mr B. Champagne should be taken in a tankard. I’ve even talked Ingrid into it.

    Andrew C, Never Say Never Again, IIRC. Excellent!

  18. ‘We do not live in an ideal world, however, but one in which profit and consumerism are rampant.’

    Profit, being ‘rampant,’ is supposed to be bad?

    “Profit good; loss bad” doesn’t seem to be something you’d need to teach people.

  19. @Gamecock

    Obama hates so much he begged for him and Michael to meet and bow down to EIIR, typically they screwed up when they did

  20. So there you go…

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are to stop using their “SussexRoyal” brand from spring 2020. The couple had been in discussions with aides and senior royals about using the name following their decision this year to step back from royal duties. But a spokesperson for the couple said it was agreed the word “royal” could not be used due to government rules. Applications to trademark the SussexRoyal brand have also been withdrawn. The couple’s popular Instagram account uses the name SussexRoyal, as does their website.
