Liberals caught with their Pantsdown

Up until '16 the Liberals could just about get away with the great pretense that they were indeed liberals but since Brexit that pretense has been exposed in all its ugly putrescence. The fig leaf of democracy has been torn away to reveal the ugly truth beneath -the liberals are a squalid party of illiberal big government elitists with profoundly illiberal tendencie -s witness their open contempt for the 17 plus million people who voted to get out of the illiberal EU and their insistence enunciated in nauseatingly faux moral tones that they be made to go back and vote again -and this time get it right.

The death announced today of the ridiculous pompous jackass liberal grandee Paddy Ashdown is a reminder of just how out of touch with reality liberals can get. This preposterous posturing political pygmy with his faux gravitas and his delusions of competence was almost a caricature of the worst sort of liberal -smarmy, patronising suffering from acute self awareness deficit and the delusion that any fatuous statement that ushered from his lips was of interest to anyone other than his psychiatrist and his narrow band of cultic acolytes  taken in by his preening prattling vacuity masquerading as principle.

The liberals have been eviscerated since their power lusting coalition gambit backfired and one can only hope that their days in the political wilderness are long and arid  and that their tedious sanctimony never better embodied than by prattling paddy and dreams of future office and influence will be burried along with his cancer ridden corpse.

The Unholy Alliance of Religion and Leftism

The religious and the Left are united in their visceral loathing and fear of individualism and the self which they excoriate with a passion that is positively pathological.Fear and loathing of individualism is their sine qua non as it is a threat to their collectivist agendas.

The nihilism and misanthropy of the left with its obsession with environmentalism and its desire that people sacrifice themselves on the altar of altruism -not even for the living but the yet to be born, future generations, the non living, the non existent is echoed by the religious who demand people sacrifice themselves to a supernatural entity of such pathological magnitude that  would make Stalin and Hitler seem like plaster saints of innocence by comparison.

Individualism is conflated with solipsism,selfishness, narcissism, subjectivism, whim worshiping. The only logical conclusion when individualism is rejected is group think,collective consciousness which is outright mysticism that the left has embraced wholesale in perfect harmony with the religious who seek to destroy individualism, reason, autonomy freedom and liberty - to them  dangerous concepts based on consumerism and people pursuing their self interest.

Anti consumption, anti growth, anti capitalist, anti reason, anti man, anti pleasure here on earth, the Left has embraced every facet of dark ages religious puritanism and religious misanthropy making it regressive, nihilistic and and a philosophical threat to enlightenment universalist principles on which the modern world and civilization itself is based and dependent upon.

Who ARE the Far Right?

They are on the move the media tells us but  is their   characterization accurate or have they made a glaring omission? The latter I fear and am not sure it is wholly unintentional. They juxtapose the Far right with the Islamists -but why? Are not the Islamists the ultimate Far Right?

Look at the agendas of the Islamists for a few seconds and it becomes manifestly obvious that they are Far Right to the core. Misogyny? Tick Homophobia? Tick.Xenophobia -Racism? Tick. And of course let us not forget the gravest evil of the Far Right namely Anti semitism! Er, Tick Tick Tick. The only thing the Islamists do not have is: white skin. So, the argument on the left goes, they cannot possibly be Far Right!

This is the bbc line and it should be challenged head on. Islamists are the Far Right every bit as much as nay far more  than the Edl or their more virulent European equivalents who are apparently a grave threat according to latest statistics.

Frank Gardener the beeb correspondent could not seem to get his ducks in a row this morning on the Today prog as he started by saying there is a rise in violence from "the far right and far left. But a few minutes further into his commentary he reverted back to just the far right so there is some very dodgy journalism going on here as usual from the beeb.

From now on there should be pressure on the bbc to include Islamists in the category of the Far Right for no other group belongs there more than they do.

The Great Austerity Myth

The British think if they deny themselves a wafer thin mint that is austerity. The spending orgy just continues and with Hammond at the helm it will be more spend spend spend, welfare for all, corporate and individual. Even trees are going to get tens of millions. The economy will continue to be debauched, the very lodestone of the economy the tech digital industry will be eviscerated with malevolent digital tax to the likes of Amazon who have threatened to withdraw form the UK if Hammond carries out his threatened terrorist actions against them.

The socialist tories hate capitalism as much as Labour do and there is no hope for the country unless they are challenged on ideological grounds and a new movement away from the statism of both political parties and towards capitalism emerges.

Why Has Parliament got a Vote ie veto on Brexit?

I have not heard a reason for this yet. Parliament can veto the referendum result -how so? 75% of parliamentarians are Remainoids and they can scupper Brexit? Wonder why this has not been challenged and there has been no outrage about it.

Why have a referendum in the first place if parliament can over ride it? Blank -out.

If the referendum is nullified by parliament, parliament should be nullified by the people.

Remainers the EU's odd bedfellows

Why would the remainoids be fighting desperately for the UK to remain a member of what is fast becoming a union of crypto fascist states? With one country after the other being taken over or challenged by virulent nationalist xenophobic parties within the EU it is ill sorted to say the least that the liberal defenders of the EU want Britain to remain within this federation of nascent European  fascists.

Have they not read the writing on the wall or are they politically illiterate or so crazed and enamoured of the concept of the EU that they haven't noticed what an ugly illiberal conglomeration of nationalist states it now morphed into?

So much for the EU being a bulwark against fascism. Now that it's raison d etre has been  comprehensively negated by current events should it not European liberals remove their imprimatur from this doomed endeavour?

Greener than Thou

The Greens will devour themselves! The latest here in Kent is a protest against wait for it: a Solar Power plant. Apparently it will interfere with the natural habitat salt marshes and the lesser spotted tit no doubt.

When it comes to virtue signalling of course the Greens are in a class of their own -middle class whining Niabys -not in anyone's backyard. They will not be happy tll the whole human race has extinguished itself and left planet earth to its natural pre human state -theirs is the misanthropy that dare not speak its name, with some added nihilism thrown into the toxic mix.

Greenies are old Marxists who never die, just mutate and reinvent themselves hoping no one will notice their base motives or am I complimenting them undeservedly for having an ideology when in fact they are too irrational even for that?

Phillip Green. Victim of Hate Crime?

Why do people hate Phillip Green?There is anti semitism lurking in there somewhere but chiefly it is because he has had the effrontery to be incredibly successful and that is not tolerated by the pseudo intelligentsia and the culture at large. That is the unforgivable sin.

Be on welfare, be a moocher and you will be valorised but dare to succeed and you will be demonized.

If you put a foot wrong your character will be assassinated  from both  left and the right proving yet again that there is no essential difference between the  two and never was.

A nurse can be responsible for killing dozens of patients in the NHS and not receive anything like the vitriol and hate that Green has received over the years.

In this age obsessed with hate speech it seems there is  one group of people who are exempted from such protection absurd and foolish as it is and yes, its the evildoers, the producers and businessmen, for whom it is permanent open season. 

Irish stick it to the Roman Catholic Church (again)

God is a maniac! Stephen Fry is vindicated. You can lampoon the evil church without now having your collar felt. It's hard to believe such battles are still being fought in the 21st century but such is the evil power held by the church. The Irish have spoken and told the church where to put its evil blasphemy laws in their referendum. Rome wasn't sacked in a day, it took a little longer but bravo to the Irish as they hammer another nail in the Church of satan's coffin.

We should follow suit and abolish our blasphemy laws deviously  euphemised as 'hate thought crime.Religion will not go quietly into its  night but rages against the dying of its evil lights -it has to be forced into giving up it nefarious powers as it is still attempting to silence those who would dare to challenge its absurdities, lies and the giant hoax upon mankind it has perpetrated down the ages.

A nice competition to see who can draw the funniest and most obscene pictures of Mohumud piss be upon him would be a start.We must be able to make fun of religion and its evil hold on mankind, it's pretensions and absurdities and not allow it to continue intimidating people into silence with its threats and bullying.This is just a start hopefully and will embolden people to take on religion and its authoritarian totalitarianism once and for all.

Arab Nazi States are our Allies?

Why are we selling a long standing Islamafascist rogue state like Sordid Arabia WEAPONS and calling them our 'allies'? With friends like that who needs enemies. Could it be our wretched monarchy that has close ties to them for godonly knows what reason other than that's what monarchies do - mutually support their heinous crimes (ref history of the monarchy in Britain across the many centuries).

We expect nothing more from Mr expedience and pragmatist Trump when he argues that we cannot censure the Saudis because selling them weapons provides jobs for Americans but that the UK should be in bed with this truly monstrous regime that has been committing mass murder for decades simply beggars  belief.

Apparently many tory ministers have been bought by the Saudis and are mired in corruption and cronyism with the evil Sordid mullahs and actually have the brassneck to appear on the Bbc justifying their obscene posture and wheeling out a bizarre justification for their moral depravity and cupidity as follows: 'if we weren't selling them weapons other less scrupulous (?!) countries like Russia would be. If we weren't funding the Arab Nazis some other less scrupulous countries would be.

Don't you want to vomit all over such tory mps gentle reader s s s s?

Lies, Damned lies and Blog Stats

My blogstats state that in the last 24 hours I have had 19 thousand hits or visitors from the US and that in the last 7 days it is 80 thousand from the US. Bearing in mind that I have only ever had 100 per week I am of course not taking such stats seriously at all. Of course it would be nice were it accurate but I cannot see how it can go from 100 to 18,000 Lol.

Apart from anything else the law of averages would dictate that were such a volume of people viewing this site at least some would have left a comment but as my comment box is empty again I am skeptical.

Someone said it could be the Ruskies as I am unkind to them but although true what would be gained by bigging up my lamentable stats?

Could it be automated bots if that's what they call them? Blank-out.

Could it be the internet company wanting to give me a little bit of encouragement languishing as I do in the cyber wastes of the Great Unread? That would be sweet but I just dunno and I guess if I have  attained such a huge readership practically overnight and anyone is reading this someone or 2 can leave a comment  but in the absence of anyone doing that I will remain a Blogstat skeptic.

America -Where did it all go wrong?

What was the flaw in the american constitution that enabled it to go from the country the founding fathers articulated, a severely delimited Republican state to an over bloated quasi socialist, welfare state, mixed economy statist democracy?

From Washington, Franklin etc to in a few generations Wilson, Roosvelt, Johnson, Obama ,Trump eek? Could it have been the introduction of the notion of taxation as a legitimate tool of the state as adumbrated in the Federalist papers? Clearly, once the principle that taxation was an acceptable tool in the arsenal of state - even for laudable purposes - was established it would only be a matter of time for the state to expand its remit across the board as the pass had been sold re the principle of taxation. Thus the growth of welfare from the beginning of the 1900s.

War is always used as an excuse to expand government which after the war continues to be funded at war levels as the people have been accustomed to big state action and are thus persuaded that such state action can be extended to domestic affairs also so the successive wars the US engaged in from the end of the 18th century surely contributed to the expansion of government as it did in Europe after the 1st and 2nd world wars.

There was nothing in the constitution apparently which prevented this massive expansion of the state into the personal affairs of the citizenry so that today the US resembles more and more the European states in its invasive interventionist statist policies and its concomittant growth of national debt.

Not being in any way shape or form a constitutionalist expert I could not possibly say what were the ommissions that led and allowed the statists to drive a coach and horses thru the constitution but this they have undoubtedly done and it remains to be seen if the US can survive the grave statist incursions of its enemies within.

Welfare in Aspic

Governments come and go but welfare endures. Like all the other philosophical crap the West has absorbed welfare came from the Germans with Bismarx. German may well have been defeated on the battle grounds of the 1st and 2nd world wars but there is n doubt that it is the philosophical political ideological victor of the 20th century right up to today.

Kant, Marx, Hegel Heidigger et all -thanks a bunch, their malign influence hangs like a dark toxic cloud over European polities across the piece and let us not forget their darkest hour -the construction of the EU monolith which as most observers recognize re the EU is merely the continuation of German hegemony by other means.Hitler first outlined the blueprint for a united europe.

Now thankfully Germany is a busted flush politically as hey ho they are embracing Fascism again! and Merkel star has waned but back to welfare.

The tories have accommodated Welfare right from the get go bar some stout but almost solitary and ultimately futile resistance from the tory prophet Churchill who once again was warning the British people about the dangers of socialism but once again they turned a deaf ear and we have been paying the price ever since. What did Churchill say vis a vis socialism in England? That it would require a Gestapo to enforce it. Howls of outrage from the Left who never wanted it pointed out that the German Nazis were socialists -the clue was in th name national socialist party.

Now we have government agents and operatives telling us what to say, think,feel, eat, drink,behave, policing our words governing every aspect of our existence. If it waddles like a a gestapo, quacks like a gestapo...

Speeches from both Hitler and Goebelles testify to their affinity and direct allegiance with socialist principles but these were inconvenient truth for the left socialists who prevailed.

Fast forward to today and the kindly but deluded Ian Duncan Smith who attempted to finesse a reformed Welfare State and its the same story -the tories cast in the craven role of making socialism work and getting brickbats for their troubles.

Managerial socialism and welfare is what the tories have always posited post '45 bar a short period when Thatcher wielded the handbag and pushed back the socialist frontiers a few hundred yards but now all that ground will be retaken and extended thru Corbyn with the help of the pink tories and Welfare remains, unchallenged at its socialist egalitarian altruist roots and more a drain than ever on creativity, enterprise, freedom and liberty.

Pope Beatifies Communist priest

The head of the kiddie fiddling  Roman Catholic church has officially turned a Marxist El Salvadoran priest into a saint. Isn't that all you need to know about this obscene despicable death cult religion that holds tyrannical sway over a billion people across the globe and is responsible for the deaths of millions in its sick and depraved history and career of evil?

Communism/ catholicism hand in glove. The church sucked up to every totalitarian dictatorship in the 20th century and here it is turning a commie loving priest into a saint. Why would any decent self respecting person want anything to do with such an amoral institution? That's the power of mysticism, still holding people in thrall centuries after the horrifick nitemare of the Dark Ages has passed. Still the hold endures. The power of unreason reaches across the ages and centuries holding people in thrall to its irrationalist creed -seemingly forever.

What Trump should say to the British People

My fellow Brits, forgive this breach of protocol as I know it is a well established principle that a prsident does not interfere directly in an ally's internal political affairs but I feel I have to break with such observances for I have to tell you in all earnestness I do not like what I am seeing from your once I regret to say  great country. Reluctant though I am to express the following thoughts I feel I have no choice when I see the disturbing trajectory you are on politically. The thought of a Corbyn government feels me frankly with horror and incredulity such that I find it hard even to utter these words a Corbyn government without an ominous and profound sense of consternation and revulsion

What on earth are the British people thinking of? In the last election your Theresa May only barely scrapped through ahead of an avowed Marxist, a malevolent miserable pathetic excuse of a human being who has sidled up to every monstrous regime he could find that was against Britain and its interests and by extension ours too. He is an anti semite, a proud supporter of vile fascistic arabic states and leaders, terrorist outfits, racist and malign, supported idreologically the old soviet union and as it has been revealed that the old Labour leader and extreme leftist Michael Foot was supplying information to the soviets it is inconceivable that Corbyn was not up to the same with his rabid Marxist ideology to say nothing of his despicable soft speaking sidekick John Mcdonnel with his sinister studied calmness and pathological hatred of freedom and the only system that guarantees it capitalism.

Though it pains me to say it if this vile crew of Stalinists is elected in to power Great Britain will from that moment be regarded by our country as a foe not an ally. The Special relationship which has been cultivated over generations will die an instant death the moment those sinister characters
 walk across the threshold of 10 and 11 downing st.

How can the United States maintain normal traditional relationship with a country that is hostile to freedom and liberty and the capitalist system as compromised as it has become over the decades with creeping mixed economy programmes and policies which even our country has sadly not been immune to?

But this would represent a violent break even with that as it threatens the UK with mass institutionalized emmiseration and  and impoverishment on the scale of what is taking place in Venezuela right now which the leftist media has studiously avoided reporting on.

America may end up having to set up another Marshall Plan after Corbyn has finished with your country. If it is asked to provide the means for the overthrow of such a dictatorial monstrous communist cabal my country will not hesitate to come to your assistance as we did the last time Great Britain was threatened by an extreme socialist enemy.We will do everything in our power to stop a Corbyn government from destroying the UK but you can avoid such an outcome by coming to your senses and not voting in such a freedom and liberty hating hobgoblin in the first place.

The decision is yours and I can only hope -and indeed pray were I not a proud atheist that that the British electorate after staring and peering over the abyss wisely and prudently step back and go in the opposite direction. You need a Maggie to provide you with such inspiration but alas you only have a May who does not seem to have any principles whatever, good or bad but she is still a million times preferable to Corbyn so please hold your noses and vote for her again if she is still standing at the next election and then after that see if you can find someone of moral calibre which your political scene is sadly lacking at this moment.

Regards, US President

How to counter the Red Menace

There is a very real threat that Britain could fall under communist rule and dictatorship within the year aided and abetted by the weak amoral tories wrangling over Brexit, frustrating the will of the referendum electorate and thus letting in the Corbinistas by default.

This could be precluded by the adoption of the British Constitution as outlined below whereby no such Marxist assault on the polity could even get to first base as its policies would fly directly in the face of every tenet contained within it, violating core principles of liberty and individual rights, reducing the voters to feudal serfs working for the state in state run businesses,regulated and taxed to within an inch of their lives, run by local soviets in the guise of localism and decentralization, paid hoodlums from the ranks of the newly re empowered trade unions and the thugocracy of Momentum and its petty tyrants and hirelings.

Demagoguery would never get to first base and the British citizens would be protected by law from any such state encroachments, arbitrary rule and power thus making it impossible for any would be dictator to use majority rule as an excuse for mob rule, extortion, bribery, threats of violence and incarcerations for any who resist the powers of the state to curtail their freedom and strip them of their property rights and thus their lives.

With such a constitution in place a century ago the Welfare State would never have been born, a hideous statist monster with powers to plunder, rob, pillage, loot at will on an industrial scale, tyranny institutionlalized by dictat, at the point of a gun with all the force of the state to deprive citizens of their liberty in the name of the common good -nauseatingly and hypocritically, fantastically framed as a moral good, a virtuous enterprise, the sacrificing of all to all with quasi religious overtones got from the same philosophical religious root and base of altruism -from each according to his need and that need a claim on everyone's life, a system of human bondage, man reduced to a beast of burden, enslaved to a collectivist creed cut from the Christian creed of self sacrifice and crucifixion. A gross perversion and inversion of morality trumpetted to this very day as the ultimate moral good.

A British Constitution

Government shall pass no laws or acts abridging people's freedom; freedom of speech inalienable, no laws restricting it such as blasphemy laws recast as hate crimes or hate speech

Government shall have no tax raising powers

Freedom of the press shall be guaranteed, no state control or regulation  of the media - no state broadcaster -Bbc privatised

There shall be a Separation of Church and State (disestablishment)

Abolition of the Welfare State and also to  to include areas of health, education, transport, the Arts, sport, culture, media, unemployment, social security, childcare, adult social care and housing -immediate selling off of all social housing stock including housing associations, cessation of all government house building programmes

Privatisation of all public spaces, selling of all public land, forests,national parks,roads streets, motorways, waterways etc, abolition of greenbelt and the successive Town and Country acts restricting building.

Abolition of Eminent Domain -Compulsory Purchase Orders

Privatisation of fire services

Separation of Economy and State, free banking -  re privatisation of Bank of England

Government shall have no regulatory powers over trade industry and business or engage in any form of' partnership' with business such as obtains in the statist construct of the mixed economy.

Prohibition laws regarding consumption of drugs repealed

Government shall impose no protectionist tarriffs on imported goods -abolition of all import export controls bar for issues of national security and the checking of those with communicable diseases or suspected terrorists

Government shall form and create no 'quasi' autonomous bodies -Quangos and all such, without exception, to be abolished

What do we owe Future Generations?

Nothing! They don't exist! You cannot owe the non existent anything hello! Man is not a self sacrificing animal to the living let alone to the yet to be born. What a monstrous proposition. Eat less meat! Consume less, your carbon footprint is too big, sacrifice for future generations. Bollocks! No!

The New Puritanism -Environmentalism. Last time it was Malthusianism and that was a monstrous lie too. Mortification of the flesh anyone? Surely you are not a denier? A heretic. Burn them at the stake -o you can't -it will cause pollution.

Religion is dead, long live environmentalism. It has exactly the same pieties, strictures, shibboleths, hectoring sermonizing, threats, imprecations, mythology and irrationalism and should be treated with the same contempt. It should be seen as every man's duty to up his meat consumption in direct defiance of the sustainability crowd, the anti growth zealots and eco doom mongers.

China's Cure for Islam

A million muslims in camps being programmed out of their Islamic faith! It's an ambitious audacious project but you have to admire the Chinese for attempting it. Of course it is shocking and totally against objectivist principles, the state involving itself in personal matters of faith and belief but we live in parlous times and is the West's approach to the Islamic menace so much better?

Here we shrug our shoulders and allow muslims to run our prisons and brainwash fellow criminals with Islamic propaganda. The Chinese have looked at the West's approach and its hardly surprising that they were not impressed. If a country has a death wish it would make sense but China does not and it is besieged with an islamic threat of its own and is not about to passively acquiesce in its downfall.

And look at the self confidence and optimism of its belief in transforming transgressive minds - an amazing self confidence that we in the West are sorely lacking and the irony is we have far more to be self confident about than China if we only knew it, with its bleak amoral communist ideology and even its Confucian philosophy as good as it is in parts cannot compete or compare with the enlightenment pro reason values of liberty and individual rights that is the bedrock of Western civilization. All of that lost in our anti reason multicultural political correctness that has engulfed our culture and eviscerated it.

No, the Chinese are to be commended in their intentions if not perhaps in the mass incarceration but I do find it preferable to  the West's morally invertebrate approach and its craven  surrender to nihilism across the board including Islam which could end up posing an existential threat to it if it does not become robust in defending its glorious heritage pretty sharpish.

Scots (Not) Missed

If Scotland wants independence from the UK why does it continue to take handouts in the form of English tax funded welfare to the scots in the form of the notorious Barnet Formula? Should the SNP not come clean with its electorate and acknowledge the debt of gratitude it owes to the English with its endless dole to their Scottish dependencies but of course in time honoured fashion Scotland bites the hand that feeds it.

Now it is in search of another sugar daddy in the form of Brussels. Good luck with that one. It will be hitching its wagon to a fallen star as the European continent is about to be engulfed in a tidal wave of fascistic nationalism with its truculent members straining at the Brussels leash and about to bring about the dissolution of the whole shooting match which will take  EU sucker down -and the Scots with it.

Some Independence anyway as Scotland seeks to tie its self to Brussels apron strings. It's about time turgid Sturgid talked turkey to her turkey like electors about to vote for Christmas if they ever get the chance.

Atheist but believe in the Paranormal?

Sorry, No! The bbc radio 4 prog wants people to think that circle can be squared and seemed to take some pleasure in trying but it is nonsense on its face. But why would they even want to try you may ask gentle reader?

Atheism requires the paramountcy of reason and the left fears this -and rightly so. Once people start embracing reason there is no telling where it will lead. They will begin to question possibly secular forms of unreason like collectivism or am I being too optimistic? Maybe..

For atheism denotes non belief in God -it leaves open a whole vast field of things someone who is an atheist could believe in but surely what it must preclude is the realm of un reason ie religion,faith, mysticism, the supernatural or heaven forefend the paranormal.

Thus some woman who was identifying as (as they say these days) an atheist was recounting with all earnestness her paranormal experiences. No! Does not compute. God is to include all supernatural experiences including th paranormal. Nice try stupid bbc -but sorry -she was no atheist.

When is the State Illegitimate?

This is the problem I have for as far as I am concerned it becomes illegitimate the second it uses force and coercion against the citizens (or in the uk we would say subjects). That is to say whenever it imposes taxation on its citizens it loses all authority and moral legitimacy. So we have a problem Euston. Having sold the pass centuries ago on taxation it is very hard to take a stand this far down the line. People have been inured for centuries to taxation and have no leg to stand on now.

Still, force is force, coercion is coercion and a criminal act does not become moral because it has been committed a billion times or more.

A system embedded for millenia, entrenched down the ages, institutionalized as a norm, has a very
 powerful hold on its victims. Who can challenge custom and convention especially as it has taken on a moral dimension, woven into the philosophical fabric through the religiously instantiated concept of altruism, an unquestioned edict sanctified by centuries of rote tradition and conditioning, underpinned by practically every philosophical school since Plato with the honourable exception of Aristotle and Ayn Rand.

Even the non religious secular minded have taken on board the ideology of altruism if not in practice still as an agreed ideal to be aspired to if not fully realized. Until the altruist spell is broken and men assert their inalienable right to self determination, liberty, freedom from the arbitrary dictats of the state the slavery of statism will prevail and men will continue to be spiritual slaves and ultimatley physical ones as well as observe present trends.



Concepts make the world go round! They don't exist as such but without them there would be no civilization. What amazes me about Ayn Rand is she says things you have never heard before but should have done. She talks about the very building blocks of civilization, things we should learn at our mother's knee or just after.

School teaches you what to think but not how to think. It tells you that thought is impotent, that one view is just as valid as another, that there is no objective truth, anything goes, one man's theory is as good as the next, feelings are paramount, there is no objective history just subjective history based on race, class, gender etc.

The individual is impotent, he must be subordinated to the group, tribe, sacrificed for the common good. Mysticism spiritual or secular is promoted and no critical thought is allowed towards a person's faith and beliefs for such would be a thought crime, hate crime.

Nothing is allowed beyond the perceptual level of consciousness, everything is random and arbitrary including all subjects on the curicula which are just a mishmash of concretes piled sky high to be memorized and parroted without any attempt to integrate or conceptualize.

Modern education via the state is a rape of the mind on all levels from kindergarten to university.A crippling of the cognitive faculties is the avowed but unspoken aim of the education establishment designed to create a passive bovine subject population who will vote for collectivist political parties to enslave and herd them ultimately into 21st century slave pens. Mass Corbinization can be the only outcome and there is no one standing between the people and their fate if there ever was.

Things that Annoy me

People who talk on their phones in public. People who ride their bikes on the pavement. People who ride their bikes on the road - I fervently hope they will be crushed under th wheels of a 4by4.  People who give their pets human names. People who let their dogs urinate on park benches -esp if I am sitting there. (If a person urinated against a bench they would be arrested but apparently dogs doing it is ok). People who tell you that theirs is a rescue dog. People with grating voices, to include accents, scottish,welsh, yorkshire etc. Radio 4 - full of whining bitter and twisted middle class wimmin feminists riding their collectivist hobby horses -public service propaganda -an endless pitch for government solutions to everything, North Korea  style. That's it really, I'm an easy going kind of person as you can see.

May Outs herself as a Red

Quelle surprise. May is whoring around for Labour votes, appealing to disillusioned Labour voters who find Corbyn too much to take -she doesn't say why, and here's why. She shares his views -she cannot, will not and has not repudiated socialism and its tenets that he represents, she just hopes Labour voters will see Corbyn as weird and  anti semitic.

So the most extreme Labour leader ever is about to become prime minister and a tory PM has nothing to say about it.

What does she offer these estranged Labour voters? Moderation and patriotism.

Moderate what -statism? Apparently. And we all know what appeals to patriotism means. Empty bromides, a moral vacuum where an ideology should be.

The electorate have been conned and its been going on a long time. Until a small state anti mixed economy pro liberty and freedom party emerges we are going to be left choosing between 5 variants of statism and that apparently is democracy.

Supreme Twat Kavanaugh v Me Too

What an invidious choice! The supreme slimeball sex fiend Kavnaugh with his religious hypocrisy, hair trigger temper and nauseating sense of entitlement to say nothing of his toxic views on abortion v the hysterical emotionally incontinent Me Too crowd -I'm a victim too! Back in 1972 a man made a pass at me! Give me a million.

A plague on both their houses but frankly Kavanaugh is such a creep and a deadly serious threat to Americans, the constitution and to all women that I don't care what low underhand methods the Democrats deploy to unseat him and if he does pass the audition I hope they pursue every inquiry from the long queue of women no doubt waiting to emerge with their stories and dog him to the bitter end.

The fact that the judge gets the imprimatur of sex pest Trump should surely rest this case.

Green eyed monster

There was a time when the Left used to excoriate capitalism for not producing enough stuff for the poor but when this proved a blatant canard it switched tack and now it is bemoaning that capitalism creates too much stuff and will it kindly stop it before it destroys the planet.

 This is the latest green message at its party conference and the government is also asking ( beware when government asks companies to do anything as it is invariably the kind of asking you cannot refuse) companies like Primark to come up with ways to produce less stuff because its fabric particles get into the water system and will cause a eco armageddon.

So poor people can go hang now can they since they will be the victims of this anti growth anti producing ideology as cheap products will no longer be available in the shops to cut down on our carbon footprints but it will at least enable the greenies to virtue signal as they destroy the capitalist system which is their obvious and clear ambition.

A journalist asked one of its spokeswomen if they would consider joining the Labour party now that it is so far to the left but she declined presumably because Corbyn is not left enough for them but he was right to identify their Marxist inclinations and such is where their toxic anti life ideology would lead us were enough gullible voters to be tempted by the greeny siren call.

Trans People and the Age of Subjectivism

There is an identity crisis. A is no longer A. It could be B or C or whatever you choose. The law of identity is dead. It has been supplanted by the Law of feelings and subjectivism. Objective reality? Are you kidding? The German philosophers two hundred years ago disproved that nonsense.

So here we are. Gender fluidity, men walking into female toilets and changing rooms because they 'identify' as women. The Left is eating itself over this one with gay groups castigating Stonewall for defending this insanity. So something good has come of it at least.

We have now moved into an Age of Non Identity politics,  Ickean politics. Shape-shifting reptiles are walking among us!

It is now pretty much illegal to boldly assert the law of identity -to assert that A is A. You are offending those who believe it is b or c. Acknowledge the Kantian universe or pay a heavy price!

An assertion of the arbitrary and an insistence of it enforced by law is the ultimate totalitarianism which of course was the goal of the post modernist left all along and those chickens have now come home to roost.

Feminism v Women

I always start off feeling sympathetic and empathetic to women and their unfair treatment over the centuries but as soon as one of their self proclaimed representative feminists starts up that residual synmpatico quickly evaporates. Why are they so obnoxious, talking in prescribed stock phrases, exuding misandry from every pore?

They take a perfectly good case, a legitimate argument and turn it into something toxic and poisonous. Take the issue of sexual harrassment which no one can doubt has been a problem in the workplace and no doubt universities but their prescriptions are so draconian and prohibitive they would not be out of place in Orwell's 1984 in their sinister applications and implications. It's the anti sex league with government functionaries monitoring student's behaviour, the males having to go on courses to be instructed in how to comport themselves around female students.

Effectively the takeaway as they say these days is that men and women cannot coexist in any social space without rigorously enforced codes of behaviour and harsh sanctions for transgressors. Sexual McCarthyism stalks the corridors of academe and the workplaces too, a national hysteria and paranoia, a new puritanism positively Victorian in its rigid and hidebound applications.

Modern feminism has lost the plot and hopefuly there will be a backlash against it before too long or the population rate will plummet as men and women remain in their respective silos eyeing one another warily and suspiciously - which, some would say, is what feminists wanted to happen all along.

Happy Not Clappy

Don't whoop holler or clap at a Manchester university -you may disturb the autistic and the deaf! Just wave your hands about like they do in deaf school -jazz hands its called apparently.Yes the bats have got into the belfry.

If society is to be predicated on the needs and requirements of the defective and subnormal and those with exotic food allergies where does that leave the rest of us, the normal majority? Make way for the cripples and the disabled!

It's more virtue signalling of course. Look how virtuous we are in turning the whole world upside down to cater to and accommodate the special few who are to be elevated to a higher status by dint of their abnormalities.

It's sinister really, a sort of inverted eugenics is at work where the fit and able are to be sacrificed to the unfit and disabled. Crippling the able is the left's game -the ultimate  egalitarianism. It is animated by a spirit of hatred for the fit and a desire to drag it down - pure nihilism in other words.

Cometh the hour.....

It's a long standing fact that the only truth ever uttered in tory conference season is on the fringes and so it proved to be yesterday with an impassioned barnstorming performance by Borris - (if your'e tired of Johnson you are tired of life).

Of course the media tried to downplay it but it blew Theresa May away in a devastatingly powerful performance with all the Johnson vim and vigour with the combination of levity, gravitas, genuine anger and surgical assault on all the villains of the piece from Corbyn Hammond May, Brexit betrayal, tory weakness and vacillation,treachery the whole gamut of evils swatted away like irksome flies.

Borris is a freak within the tory party as he actually believes in something, is passionate about it and it is manifest in every move and gesture and of course he is an orator and can move crowds with his words.

Most tories are dogmatic pragmatists, stubborn in their wrong rather than their right. They will go to the barricades for pragmatism and moderation  but in an age when the conflict is clearly between good and evil, an existential fight, this is worse than useless, it is complicity with that evil and the only beneficiaries will be the  fascist left that has taken over the Labour party and is beginning to feel confident that the prize of power will soon be theirs -by dint of nothing more than tory default.

Tories will not be soon forgiven for that and the only good that could come out of this whole debacle is the breakup and dissolution of the tory party altogether and the emergence of a non statist right party that does not feel the need to tack to the left in a Corbyn lite caricature but will stoutly defend liberty and the small state.

Why are so many businessmen Leftists?

The mixed economy is as marriage made in hell between business and politics but it is an arranged marriage with one party, the hapless businessman corralled into it, in  an effective involuntary servitude, like an invitation by the mafia one cannot refuse.

Politics gets the vicarious kudos of having the businessman's - albeit coerced - imprimatur and business gets the protection by the state from upstart rivals who are tied up in red tape and government bureaucracy of regulations which they themselves can negotiate exemptions from by pull and favour thru the corrupt lobby system.

Big business thus loves big government as it acts as a protector from rival competitors and it can gain some albeit perverse reflected glory by being associated with the government of the day and receiving official recognition.

Business therefor has to be leftist in order to survive and thrive under a mixed economy and should any business stick its neck out and argue for a small state with low taxation and regulation it will be singled out for special attention, become the target of highly vocal vilification, censure and persecution and will have inland revenue agents all over its business like a rash. Self preservation thus makes all business in the mixed economy Stockholm Syndrome Leftists.

The Heseltine Hammond Sindrome

When businessmen go into politics it is almost always disastrous. The very skills that make them so successful in the marketplace or what passes for it, make them a total disaster in politics. Entrepreneurs by definition have Big Ideas, they create business empires and are hugely successful and wealthy so doing.

But translating such skills into politics leads to more politics, grandiose adventures and schemes -the Heseltine sindrome where huge sums of money can be commandeered for vanity projects -they love things like the Hs2 monstrosity and similar ventures - and since it is not their money they can become even more ambitious and expansive, more reckless with no cost to them when  the whole thing crumbles to dust leaving losses and debts for someone else to shoulder ie the taxpayers who are the pawns in the big shot businessman cum politician's maniacal projections.

When businessmen express opinions on politics they are almost invariably the most statist of all, it is almost as if they take a holiday from reality, no longer having to persuade people to go into partnership they have the brute power of state coercion at their disposal where the gun and dictat take the place of reason and mutual self interest.

Thus state power corrupts even the most noble the minute they get their feet under the table and go native and politics for the businessman is therefor a a siren call they would do well to resist - for everyone's sake.

Mixed economy Blues -and Reds?

Corbyn made an extraordinary comment amidst his socialist rant at the Labour conference last week, absurdly characterizing his state takeover of the economy and business as 'real mixed economy'. Makes you wonder what he thinks we have now which by any definition is socialism with at best a dash of capitalism.

But is he proferring a mixed economy? It is nationalization disguised by the introduction of regionalized government agencies, mini soviets, an illusory diffusioin of centralized power into a Maoist localism first mooted by Cameron whose effects will be every bit as deleterious as the Soviet nationlization of industry and business from the '45 Labour government.

Now is surely the time to challenge the mixed economy model from a libertarian position since the Marxists have taken control of Labour - everything should now be on the table ideologically. Do not expect any such thing from the tory conference, just more feeble, half hearted, apologetic defence of capitalism hedged in with buts and provisos, damning with faint praise and the use of such coy evasive terminology as '21st century capitalism' '- ie a diluted, effete, eviscerated, mixed economy compromised, bastardized, emasculated, hideously deformed, hollowed out caricature of capitalism in name only.

And still the yawning chasm where a new politics and ideology should be remains, a windswept landscape unpopulated, barren and bare.

5 Months without tv...

And not missing it a bit. 100 channels and nothing to watch. Tv is so bland and pc because it is a highly state regulated medium. Contrast it with the edginess of the internet, youtube. If you want an inkling of what youtube would look and sound like if the government ever got its hands on it and subjected it to  heavy handed oppressive regulation  just watch tv.

It is hardly surprising that the state would like to regulate the  internet as it is a threat to the preservation of its carefully cultivated and projected benign image. If there is to be an equivalent of a peasant's revolt it will come from the new digital arena which is why the state is on the look out for the slightest pretext to rein it in and clip its wings and will always use some spurious pretext to do so -the standard one being  the  protection of children.

It will use the language of fear, referring to the internet revolution and its architects as 'tech giants' a term taken up by old media as it sees its lunch being eaten by the new kids on the block.

Welcome to the Red Tory Conference

In which insignificant nobodies fight futile personality battles and a Remainoid 'leader' attempts to shove her Bremain Chequers deal down the gullets of recalcitrant members and collectivist policies are trumpetted as an alternative to the ultimate Red Labourite Corbyn and his fellow Marxists who smell victory -by default and secretly give praise to May and her red tories for paving the way for his effortless ingress into 10 Downing st.

Its not as if the tories are betraying any values or principles and have just recently become ideologically corrupt and amoral. They never had any principles to betray in the first place. That is their tragedy, and by extension the country's as well.

How much ruin is in a nation -how long have we left? One prominent tory columnist was predicting recently that the tories could be in the wilderness for the next 15 years but it is hard to see how the country could survive 5 years of Corbyn let alone any longer. Of course the tories have been in the wilderness for the longest time -it is hard to know when the moral intellectual deline began -it has a Chequered history and one I confess to be not fully conversant with, only recalling the Thatcher glory years with any clarity.

The Objectivist Millwallian chant -'everybody hates us and we don't care' may be all well and good but unless I have missed it their ingress into the polity and culture has yet to even begin. Holy shit, its hard to see how Western culture can survive much longer of the present garbage unless I am mis reading the whole thing? But when not one single person is speaking up in the whole political field, not one commentator, one champion of freedom how can one be anything other than despondent and pessimistic?

Who qualifies as a philosopher?

Anyone whose writing and theories are unintelligible, incoherent, divorced from reality, openly mystical or semi mystical, collectivist, anti reason and anti human nature.

Small wonder Ayn Rand is not regarded by today's intellectuals as a philosopher. She is dismissed as simplistic but what her academic enemies hate and fear her for is that she challenges the whole philosophical field since and including Kant and exposes their racket. She points out with ample illustrations how their irrationalist creeds are mere secular versions of the mystic creed and a naked attempt to replace the old feudal kings with their secular variant of the philosopher kings.

Seeing how the renaissance had  robbed the Church and mysticism of its powers the new philosophers identified reason as a threat not just to the mystics but to themselves and they knew mysticism had to be saved and set out to destroy reason in order to do it.

Now the philosophers are the masters and they use the same techniques as the mystics of old -unintelligibility, incoherence, irrationalism and their nonsensical nostrums now rule as the mystical ramblings and utterances of the ancient high priests did before them.

Try the Waterstone's Game!

You go into Waterstone's book store where all the new publications are displayed and the game should you wish to play it is Spot a Book on Politics and Current Affairs Not Written from a Left wing Perspective. It took me 10 minutes going through scores of titles before I came up with: One! Stephen Pinkers latest work whose title escapes me but is broadly pro reason and positive about technology etc. He us mixed in his politics so may be I should call it half a book. And that was it.

Now Waterstone's has every right to be a left wing bookstore but that undoubtedly is what it is.

I go upstairs and get a new copy of the Fountainhead. I ask the staff member serving me if they have any non fictional Rand. He walks over to a shelf containing political works and says we did have one, I think, on philosophy -I didn't know she wrote any on that subject. I mentioned maybe it was philosophy who needs he and he responded, well you are clearly a Rand nut and know more about it than me.'

I must admit I was a bit taken aback by that and did not quite know how to respond and muttered some lame comment and he replied that perhaps it was an unfortunate turn of phrase and we sort of joked about it and I went off with my purchase. Then I remembered that about 15 years ago I had a similar experience with a Waterstones member of staff when I inquired into Rand's non fiction and what they had. One staffer asked what sort of books Rand wrote and when I said philosophy etc the other staffer who was also present immediately interjected and said in a tone of matter of fact finality 'Rand was coupled with the above mentioned has given me pause for thought re Rand and how anyone who expresses interest let alone admiration for her writing is seen as suspect and worthy of contempt - even by members of staff in a bookshop!

I guess people know the enemy when they see it. Had I gone in inquiring about Hitler's Meine Kampf I would have been treated with more respect and Waterstone's have had that on its shelves in the fairly recent past.

No, when it is Rand even the normal customer staff protocols go out the window.I guess fair is fair. If a writer threatens the whole culture and philosophy of the day and excoriates collectivism its adherents will be unnerved and act accordingly. Still, it's fun going into such a bookstore and reminding people that Rand existed and her philosophy will not be ignored, however much  they wish otherwise.

Theresa May to Finally Challenge Corbyn

-By putting forth socialist proposals and policies of her own! Announcements include telling parents how long their children should be on 'social media'. (Note incidentally how the technological internet revolution has been reduced to a  collectivist statist characterization -'social media' for as we know unless a word has 'social' in front of it it has not been sanctified and legitimized by the leftists who dominate public discourse and set the terminology and definitions.

The state is loco (literally!) parentis so why on earth shouldn't it dictate such things to the infantilized parents in this Brave New World  of universal collectivism?

I cannot even remember the other policies that were announced but all had the dreary, paternalist tory socialist imprimatur on them so it's now official -there is to be no opposition to the Marxist Corbyn Government in Waiting which is what it now clearly is.

Like a ship slowly sailing towards an iceburg the tory ship of state sails blithely on as the country resigned to its fate prepares to go under the hammer and sickle.

Food Allergen Hysteria?

Something is wrong about this story re Pret and the girl who died eating one of its products. If she had food allergens why was she not more careful? Could she not prepare food at home and not eat out -especially if unsure of the ingredients of the food she was eating/

Retailers surely cannot be expected to cater to those with abnormal eating disorders and allergens and it is their responsibility to exercise judgement in this matter which she clearly did not.

There is now a witchhunt against Pret, a sort of food fascism Mccarthyism that is ugly and that the media should fan this irrational behaviour and hysteria is appalling.

The politicians are riding the bandwagon as they can always be counted upon to do, forever on the lookout for yet more opportunities to regulate and control everything. The food labelling business is already way out of control and is responsible for higher food prices as who do you think pays for the excessive labelling of foods anyway?

It makes you wonder how people survived before such labeling was introduced and it speaks to a national neurosis and health food obsession where food has become yet one more vehicle for public displays of virtue signalling, where one's inner purity is expressed in the food one consumes which also links to old religious habits of seeking purity through strict dietary  regimens.

Finally I cannot help thinking that there is an element of neurosis in food allergies themselves, a way of attention seeking although of course as we have seen it can be real and genuine but there ma well be an emotional psychological element to the phenomena that needs exploring.

The Invisible Hand of the State

The workings of the market - in as far as there is a market anymore are far more transparent than the workings of the state so Adam Smith was half right.

For obscurantism, cloak and dagger opaqueness look to the state for in its Byzantine Kafkaesque circumlocutions, its evasive language, its obsfuscations and coded language - it is the very embodyment of invisibility itself.Government bureaucracy is vast and its workings are  as translucent as a murky swamp.

Do government agents come up to you in the street and say the following, 'Mr jones, we understand you are earning above average income and we wish to take a large percentage of your income to redistribute to more worthy recipients -ie those who have not earned it and whose helplessness and fecklessnes is a claim on your life so please pay up now'?

They do no such thing. The invisible hand of the state swoops down and filches said money from your bank account, or the state forces your employer to do it for them turning business into a tax collecting agency for the state that is too gutless to do the larceny itself thus implicating business in the felony.

Nothing is seen, it is done in the dead of night. Government uses coercion, intimidation, threats, bullying towards any who may have the temerity to object to this state looting by stealth. The invisible hand of the state is strangling the life out of business and entrepreneuralism and it does it secretly, covertly, like a thief in the night, skulking in the shadows.

When is Anti Globalisation Cool?

When the Left is expressing it. When Trump does it it becomes Isolationism! Of course round here we think globalization is cool and both the left and Trump are wrong. With the Left it is clear anti g means anti capitalism. With trump it is more confused. He does not like countries imposing tarriffs -so he imposes them. If you are opposed to cannibalism do you protest by practising cannibalism? You do if your name is Donald Trump and most of his supporters do not think such behaviour is in any way contradictory because they are as irrational and emotionalist as he is -he is their champion of the irrational.

Trump used the word globalism and I have yet to determine whether this means the same as globalization. On looking up the latter word of wiki it is very confusing so I looked up anti globalization and it all became very clear indeed.

The anti globalization left are anti neoliberalism ie anti free market , free trade. With his economic nationalism it is clear Trump shares some of the anti capitalism of the left but uses slightly different language to articulate it and this I will explore in a later post.

Robert Halfon - Despicable human being

Tory minister Robert Halfon is not only physically disabled but mentally disabled too. I predicted tories would not critique Corbyn but I never anticipated at least one of their number would tweet support for him and come on radio 4  on PM prog saying tories should emulate Corbyn and create social programmes for the poor, wittering on about the unfair society ad nauseam. He should be deselected and told to f### off to the Labour party where he belongs.

This pond life and pathetic excuse for a human being used to be a Thatcherite and even admired Ayn Rand but now is reduced to this treacherous behaviour and has gone truly native advocated bigger government and saying tories must be even more like labour than they are already. If they lose the next election it will be because of human detritus like Halfon. Get the sickbag.

End to Prohibition

Law enforcement is so busy trying to protect people from harming themselves they have forgotten their sole function of protecting them from harm caused by others. Prohibition re drugs is a hangover from the days when the church in conjunction with the state saw its role as attempting to save souls but those days are long gone and the state should return to its proper and only function of fighting crime not people's personal habbits.

Prohibition and we speak of drugs here is an extension of the welfare state where the nannying knows no bounds and personal choice and habbits are now being -policed by the state with catastrophic consequences for society, policing and the preservation of a stable polity.

All drugs without exception that is to say legal and illegal including prescription drugs should be freely available on the high street and all retail outlets to anyone over the age of 18 with the same procedures to ensure such as obtains with the sale  of alcohol.

The state should not seek to muscle in on this free market supply and demand process with taxation or regulation, least of all be the purveyor and dispenser of said drugs as some eager Liberal supporters of decriminalization opportunistically advocate with an eye on the rich pickings from taxed revenue in a nationalized drug industry.

The above is not to in anyway advocate the use of such drugs as they clearly have no medicinal value and are taken for recreational purposes and some can be seriously harmful to the drug taker but decriminalization is based on the inalienable right of individuals to make such choices themselves and not have their actions circumscribed by a meddling authoritarian and invasive state which principle is one of the fundamental bulwarks of liberty.

Political Transgenderism

In a mixed economy culture everything is merging and melding it everything else! Gender is fluid -they claim but so too is political ideology. Which would explain why no far right party or movement has emerged to challenge the far left Labour party. Not that the media will refer to Corbyn as far left of course. He is apparently a Social Democrat. John Mcdonnel will no doubt soon hold out an olive branch to David Owen and Shirley Williams in the la la land the media inhabits.

Now why would there be a vacuum from where the far right would presumably have emerged in response to Corbyn. You do not need a multiple choice exam system to figure it out: They share the identical ideology!

Gobalisation? Both left and right oppose it with equal vehemence. Free movement of people so immigrants can take low skilled jobs in the UK? They both oppose it. Defence of the NHS? Both extremes love the NHS. And so it goes. The tribalism of the left is equalled by the tribalism of the right. Protectionism? They both love it. The mystical tribalism of left and right runs thru their ideology, whether it be race with the right or class and gender of the left -they are united in collectivism and statism.

The right loathe and detest when this is pointed out as they are hoping no one will notice and just vote on tribal lines for them.

The public deserve a choice between the statists of left, right and  centre and those few arguing for a limited state and the protection of individual rights against the  depredations of statism  from all its above mentioned incarnations.

From the furthest reaches of Outer Corbania...

Corbania  is a foreign country, they do things differently there. Retro 70's and 80 its the land that time forgot but you could experience time travel today at the Labour (Macht Frei) conference, where socialism in aspic has been preserved for all those who like to take collectivism neat, undiluted by time, reality, and the exigencies of policy.

Even in 1984 they only managed 5 minutes of hate, here it went on for over an hour. There was not a left wing cliche lifted out of the socialist handbook that was left unsaid, not a caricature or stereotype of the Conservatives that was not presented, this was 5th form stuff knockabout politics rancid and self parodying, Pavlovian and puerile, a 60 minute grudge-fest and virtue signalling orgy.

Fantasy politics that could become a  reality? Nitemare on Corbyn st coming to a town near you? Is there a known antidote? If all that stands between us and Corbyn in Downing st is the absurd figure of Theresa May who has managed to turn Brexit into a squalid abortion of betrayal and treachery then we all have cause to lie awake at night in fear and trembling. Just form an orderly queue at the Passport Office.


Into the Political Mystic

It has been observed that Corbyn attracts a cult like following among his young, State 'educated' base. A cult of non personality in his case clearly but there can be no denying the cultic aspects of the Corbyn trajectory where emotion has been the prime mover in what is an age of emotion where feelings have supplanted reason in the irrationality of groupthink.

As I have pointed out socialism has its roots in religion and mysticism so it is hardly surprising that its highpriest commands a god like following where the incantation of a few trigger words puts his audience into a mystic trance of reverence as if the mere utterance of key words will have the power to transform reality and make one and three.

The whole economic system can be turned on its head, the laws of cause and effect reversed, whim and caprice can govern human action, wishes can come true at the chanting of mantras and mindless empty slogans such as equality, fairness, people's democracy, people's vote, for the few not the many words take on magical properties, the power to emote can bring things into being and behind all the mysticism of course is the brute force of the state ready and more than willing, nay relishing the prospect of using all the coercive tools of the state to bully intimidate  impose such new realities on any reluctant heretics who may question the logic of the programme, raise objections, invoke such irksome things as freedom, liberty, individual rights, private property. These can be Gulaged as one Momenturm member suggested for reprogramming and the recanting anti social tendencies, of daring to question the Leader and challenge his supreme powers to mystically divine the will of the people and carry it out.

The happy clappy evangelism of the Labour conference, the glassy eyed adherents and the athomosphere of hysteria, cult of personality reverence mixed with anger rage directed towards the anti christ tories was a sinister spectacle and makes perfect sense once that connection between socialism and mysticism is made.

From human allegiance to God Almighty to State Almighty, from Church to State is hardly progress but merely a substitution of one tyranny for another. Only when Statecraft is rejected as comprehensively as priestcraft has now been will man properly be said to have escaped the dark night of the soul and recaptured his inalienable autonomy as a free thinking acting self interested individual with the state as his servant, protecting his rights rather than violating them in the name of some mystic altruistic common good which leads to slave camps, concentration camps and Gulags.

Statists: We are all in this together

Leading on from the previous post it then follows that the public should expect no principled assault and attack on Corbyn's red in tooth and claws 4 socialism whatsoever in the next few day at the tory conference. There will be no Tebbit type speech. Borris may bluster but it is a pretty good bet that the kind of principled onsalught on the socialism and collectivsm Corbyn and Mcdonnel propose to unleash  on the British public will be conspicuous by its absence.

How can any leader of any party attack an ideology that they themselves either implicitly or explicitly have been operating under as their lodestone since the get go?

I have never wished to be more wrong than on this one. I will do a large amount of penance if I am proven wrong. Characteristics are reliable as an old associate, window cleaner stroke philosopher used to say.

Who created the Corbyn Mcdonnel Frankenstein?

 Blair, Cameron, May. Soft socialism leads to hard socialism. Soft drugs are  a gateway drug to hard drugs. (I started out on Burgundy but soon it the harder stuff).

A little bit of cannibalism sir? Once you have killed and eaten one human being it's over, you have sold the pass. It's only a matter of time before you are a paid up member of the Cannibalst Society.

We are talking principles here. How about just robbing a bank just once, or raping just once?  Are you a Centrist bank robber, a Moderate bank robber, a middle of the road bank robber, a Liberal bank robber, a Conservative bank robber?

The Conservatives have always been Labour Lite. Macmillan launched a house building prog in the 50's. Maggie said the NHS is safe in  our hands. Welfare expanded exponentially throughout the post war years and Thatcher was the first to check it's growth but this was a blip and government carried on expanding and broadening its remit post Thatcher.

There was never any principled stand against Socialism, collectivism, statism. The slogan of the day pre Thatcher was  'we are all socialist now'.It was only Thatcher who used the term Socialism as a term of abuse. She would utter it contemptuously as if it were the ultimate character defect, akin to having a communicable disease one did not admit to in public.

Those days have long gone. All successive tory leaders have made their accomodation with socialism and this had led to the ultimate return of the real thing, the genuine article who has had the way paved or red carpetted for him by the above mentioned sell outs. He was just biding his time. Milliband as reference in a previous post unlocked the Labour door and let him in.Handing him the passkey he then disappeared into the anus of history.

Without a Shot being Fired?

You bet. Under democracy the people can vote themselves into slavery, a Marxist dictatorship -and in the 21st century! Like a bad smell socialism will not go away, collectivism will always appeal to mediocrities and losers and the present statist system breeds them a plenty. They can always be guaranteed to vote in a strong man to enslave them, history is replete with examples.

Only philosophy can save us. It is the only known antidote to totalitarianism but if the field has been co opted by tyrannical philosophers the well has been poisoned and only despotism will follow.

Most people thought collectivism died in 1989 but only it's structures were dismantled, the fundamental philosophy which animated and drove it was never challenged and exposed excepting in the writings of Ayn Rand who has been systematically demonized and ignored by academia with their vested interest in state patronage, sinecures and tenures in the State run institutions of learning.

Thankfully the internet will allow the dissemination of such radical and genuinely revolutionary ideas  which challenge the statist quo but they will undoubtedly  be met with fierce resistance by  institutions of the Establishment, from both left and right and centre, the churches, the media and academia.

Sisyphus himself would moan and groan under such a formidable and thankless task!

Red Dawn Meets Apocalypse Now

Into the rotten heart of Darkness with Comrade McDonnell as he sketched out his nitemare vision of a neo communist raid on the utilities, taking them back into public ownership in a blood curdling sinister speech full of menace and intimidation, a smiling sweet talking assassin warning business of the fate in store for it if he and his fellow Marxist henchmen slither their way to power over the strewn corpses of the tories courtesy of duplicitous Brussels and their own intellectual paralysis and loss of will.

The bbc Corbynist lickspittle Jon Penis was wetting his pants in relish as he drew a picture of the Marxist wasteland  Mcdonnel and co had in store for the British people which, he emphasized with near orgiastic pleasure would be 'irreversible' as rather than the old Stalinist communist model of top down nationalization it would be a more sinuous nuanced decentralized diffused localised bifurcated service owned by multiple parties,regionalised into a shared ownership which no future government would be able to unpick and return to the private sector.

The idea that one government could bind the hands of future governments is a totalitarian concept in itself but this was mere bluster and wishful thinking on Penis's part  for as Thatcher proved -socialist structures can be dismantled notwithstanding the amount of Byzantine complexities and  bureaucratic shared ownership models erected to frustrate and create a roadblock to capitalist solutions.

How to Challenge a 2000 Year old Ideology?

As the UK faces the biggest threat to its polity since 1939 with the dark  and menacing shadow of Marxism casting a sickly red pall over it the question could not be more timely. With both left and right wedded to the 2000 year ideology of altruism and sacrifice for the 'common good' just getting a hearing for a contrary view is a monumental challenge in itself.

Some people thought it is all over for socialism and collectivism. How wrong we were for I include myself in that number. How did we miscalculate so wildly? What assumptions were we applying that could make us misread the zeitegeist so completely?

The only consolation is that we are in very good company. Ayn Rand no less thought the obituary for old collectivism had already been written and in her collection essays on the New Left she referred to it in the past tense and while not lamenting its passing remarked that in comparison with the new incarnation it had the virtue of at least being coherent with some integrated philosophical base albeit the philosophy was anti individualist and thus inhuman.

Christopher Hitchens in the early noughties concluded that socialism was dead and there was no point arguing for a system when the train had left the station a long time ago -probably in 1989. Many other voices from the Left concurred and had already packed their bags and got on board the social democrat train, or took the bipass to Greenland to fight their leftist causes under a false flag yes but acknowledging in so doing how passe leftist ideology now was perceived in the latter part of the 20th century.

Fast forward a decade and a half and we have the grim prospect of history repeating itself as what -farce maybe but that is if we are lucky as the seeds of tragedy are contained within the Corbyn Mcdonnel Manifesto if it ever gets enacted.

Anyone under 30 should seriously consider emmigrating, not starting a family or a business  while the rest can only wait in fear and trembling and resort to hoping that enough people who lived thru the 70's will outvote the young with their militant ignorance of history and their lemming like allegiance to the Corbyn Cult which is shaping up as a reenactment of Maoism and a Cultural Revolution in all but name.

As for reversing the 2000 year ideology of altruism and its statist collectivist philosophy, bearing in mind this has barely begun one can be forgiven for thinking its a lost cause and it now only requires a modern Gibbon to chart and document the denoument of the Western liberal Enlightenment ideal.

Red Alert! Red Alert! Red Alert!

How many times have I said over the years that Democracy and even a written Constitution is no protection against tyranny. Look at Nazi Germany, and America today.

We may well be looking at a Marxist government in the UK in a months time if the media is right and May is planning a snap election to keep out Borris or whoever will throw their hat into the ring.

So if Democracy and a Constitution will not protect us what will? Education and philosophy but that takes generations and we only have a short time frame so the prognostication is not good if you do the math.

A written Constitution could do it but it would have to flow from the education and philosophy and time is not on our side is it? The Founding Fathers laid the foundations but there were glaring ommissions in the text and lots was implied and but not spelled out. It was the lacunae, the omissions that led to its breach and the collectivists and statist rushed in and Europeanized it into a quasi welfare state which Trump has no clue or inkling of, let alone ability to reverse but is exacerbating it with further state encroachments and individual rights violations, not to mention his nomination of a right wing judge to the Supreme Court who it turns out was a sexual predator in his youth -like attracts like - and may soon be attempting if nodded thru to reverse Roe v Wade.

Do I have ought for your cheer gentle reader? Watch this space I guess.

The Age of Smallness

In order to destroy human beings they first have to be dehumanised. Jews become vermin in Nazi propaganda with images of rats intermixed with jews, characterized as  Elders of Zion which becomes a crude cover for anti semitism. Thus demonised they can then be eliminated.

This can happen anywhere, throughout history to the present day. 'Big Business'  demonized - it's very size suggesting the inhuman, the behemoth, thus: Tech Giants that need to be 'broken up, cut down to size in other words, the Tall Poppy Syndrome. If someone has achieved something rare, unique, special they must in our small culture of grey mediocrity worship be demonized to be destroyed. They are  'selfish' daring to keep the fruits of their labours instead of 'sharing' them with others, 'aggressively avoiding' tax -(where did the 'aggressive' come from when until recently tax avoidance was seen as morally neutral, a legitimate form of wealth protection - who moved the goalposts?). Such people must be made an example of, publicly shamed in the popular press many of which publications laughably present themselves as pro freedom and capitalism!

No more heroes anymore. Let's worship zeroes instead. Heroes, leaders in their field are a threat to the establishment that wants the docile, the safe, the conformist. If the achievers are not made an example of they will become role models.

The same people who are fixated with size, largeness, the Big as if it were some principle appear to have no objection whatsoever to Big Government, indeed work night and day to make it even bigger, to enlarge its scope and reach, draw more and more into its sphere of influence, sucking the life and substance out of the citizens like a boa constrictor with its regulation,taxes, imposts, tarriffs, licences  directives, trust busting protectionism.

Bankers - code for jews equally demonized and let us not forget the greatest evil of our day cited in every crackerbarrel left wing and( sadly) right wing conspiracy theory: Roll of drums please: The Corporations! The embodiment of evil. Once again observe how the demonization always follows the dehumanization. Groups of highly talented individuals, the cream of their field coming together for a common purpose of utilizing an idea and maximising its financial return is now characterized as an inhuman entity, a disembodied elemental force to be reigned in with taxes, regulation and broken up. Individual rights of its members  totally violated so that some envy eaten mediocrity can 'compete' on a 'level playing field' - ie succeed on the corpse of the original mover and shakers, swoop on its achievements and ride parasitically on its endeavors protected by a posse of gun-toting bureaucrats redistributing the spoils of plunder. Such acts of piracy and  brigandage applauded in the press on its moral hind legs in disgusting sententious canting piety!

This is our culture and it has self destruct written all over it. Prepare for a land of little people for big government to herd as the sheep they have sadly become.

Where do Conspiracy Theories Originate?

Religion! Life is not what it seems. We are governed by Dark Forces, man is having his strings pulled from a supernatural dimension! He does not know his own mind. Reality is an illusion. He thinks he is in control but he is being moved by invisible forces, a shadowy underworld or preternatural automata, moving statues, weeping statues, the unknowable, the ineffable.

Man must pray to the unseen power that will deliver him from his wretched condition, he has no free will, he is a helpless victim of outside powers, a miserable creature without direction or autonomy, his mind is unreliable, he cannot know reality, he has no volition, he should cower in abject fear and subjection, in fear and trembling, bend the knees of his mind and pray for salvation from his wretched state.

Every religion has the same message and has controlled mankind since he crawled out of the primeval slime.

Modern philosophy building on such pre existent  credulity has reinforced it by asserting that there is no such thing as objective truth, man's mind is impotent to know reality, he is a conglomeration of nerve and tissue, without volition, subject to blind forces of the  unconscious.

Now fast forward to the present day and it is hardly surprising that a sizable number of reasonably intelligent people think mankind is being governed by shadowy figures, Bilderbergers, Rothschilds, Jews, Zionists,bankers, reptiles, an underworld of malevolent conspirators manipulating everything, 9/11 was 'an inside job', ditto Kennedy's assassination, the moon landings were fake, yada yada yada.

If old religion does not rock your boat anymore how about New age religion? There is only the now! Nowism. That will impress people. Say it in a sonorous voice and you could well appear deep, privvy to knowledge the rest of duped, miserable,unelightened mankind is not and think what that will do to your fragile self esteem. Repeat a vacuous facile mantra like that and people will think you are deep.

The old school religionists would get their jollies by identifying with the one who organized the cosmos. The New Age ones get theirs by mouthing and repeating  some mindless mystical platitudinous mumbo jumbo, their minds a hollow receptacle for random arbitrary nonsense and disconnected fragments of conretes cobbled together into a mongrel will of the wisp philosophy, from a mind where reason and rationality has long since departed.

How the Right Stole the Left's Clothes

It's a topsy turvy world when the Democrats are more economically liberal than the Republicans, when they are defending free trade and the Trumpists are for protectionism and economic nationalism. This illustrates the truth that the extreme left and right meet up as Trump's views on economics have more than a little in common with Bernie Sander's.

The Blairite Clintonite Left is more free trade than the far left and Trumpists which is why many republicans  are struggling to explain why some of their number confuse Republicanism with Trumpism and indeed why many Objectivists are equally puzzled as to why some of their number also think Trump is cool.  I confess to being confused myself in this regard and find the matter somewhat perplexing. Not a good position for a blogger I must say!

Still, the best policy in such circumstances is to be patient and leave it as an open question rather than rushing in with a forced answer which will probably be wide of the mark.

The only thing I can come up with now is that the right hate and loathe the left so much  they are prepared to put up with practically anything Trump does as long as it keeps the left out of office. This means overlooking pretty much all of his statist agendas, his attacks on the first amendment, his abusiveness, his vile behaviour towards women, his vulgarity, his narcissisism, his arbitrariness, his obvious mental instability, his petulance, his infantilism, his despotism, his threats of violence and intimidation, his corruption, his economic nationalism and protectionism, his lying, his racism - the list is endless.

To be able to deny all the above and not see it suggests that the Right have lost the plot and are in an even worse state than the Left and the only conclusion is that the Left and Right are now and should be officially recognized as the Herpes 1 and Herpes 2 of political ideologies.

The trap people on the right fall into is thinking they have to pick  one or the other and that if one opposes the right one must be of the left. Bizarre but that's how awry things have got. I am not so sure there is any solution to this dilemna other than to recognize that fundamentally the Left and Right have become one. Into this political vacuum will hopefully step the Objectivists and a Capitalist Party, a vast unoccupied political ground and territory, pristine and fertile, upon which to build the New Atlantis!

The Great Rail Privatization Myth

In 1945 the railways were seized and nationalized by the  Atlee Labour government. Previously they had been privately run and operated - there was no franchise system with the state as the franchisee as was created under John Major who is the chief architect of the present debacle.

The fact that the railways are still subsidized by the taxpayer, highly regulated and indeed that there is still a ministry for transport and a transport minister in the form of the ridiculous and hapless Chris Grayling, the fool guy who is wheeled out whenever the 'privatized' railways have yet another crisis testifies to the absurdity of the whole operation and the cynical deception perpetrated on the public.

The idea that the State can operate a franchise system and refer to it  as a privatization is Orwellian in itself, a misrepresentation which has only succeeded in smearing private enterprise by having it conflated with such an adulterated and bastardized  mixed economy shambles of  a railway system.

This has led to the Labour party opportunistically pledging to nationalize the railways system which may prove difficult as it already is nationalized, being  privatized in name only.

This mess is a perfect illustration of how the failures of the mixed economy, its inherent instability and internal contradictions will always lead to a clamor for a  return to full blown state ownership of industry which indeed is exactly what is happening with a far left Labour party waiting in the wings like a vulture ready to swoop on the wreckage and debris of the mixed economy in its final death throes.

The New McCarthyism

The other day I touched on this, pointing out that the New McCarthyites are now to be found  on the left, seeing racism and racists everywhere but it is even wider than this and can be seen in the Left's systematic assault on business and free markets, a sort of hysterical anti capitalism grips them in their reference to the 'tech giants', their influence on politics and pull in the lobby system which of course is a direct product of the mixed economy that the left is wedded to.

They are on a zealous mission to break up the large companies that are allegedly monopolists violating the leftists anti trust laws. This assault on business has been going on for over a century and the arguments are patently false and tendentious and are nothing more than a brazen full on power grab by the statists in an attempt to regulate and suppress the market which it sees as a direct threat to its anti constitutional statist hegemonistic ambitions.

This New McCarthyism even has it's mock trials, senate hearings, Kangaroo Courts and witch hunts where the cream of the capitalist innovators are brought before them like criminals and  subjected to ritualistic abuse, interrogation and humiliation for the crime of having invented a revolutionary innovative technological marvel the bureaucrats and statist envy eaten mediocrities could not even dream of achieving in a thousand years.

The state is a jealous God and it shall have no other Gods before it. It is threatened and sees it's power seeping away as it no longer has control over information and this 2nd Guttenbourgian revolution is leaving it weak, compromised and a 21st century irrelevance and its latest assaults on the new wave of capitalist technological revolution is a pathetic wail of impotence from a spent force like the defrocked and dethroned religionists and monarchists a few centuries ago.

Who are the 21st Century Heretics?

Those who think man made climate change is a hoax. Those who think men and women are fundamentally different. Those who think government not only does not have all the answers to the problem but is the problem. Those who do not believe that the state is God and politicians his representatives here on earth. Those who do not believe the EU is paradise here on earth -more like hell.

What will they do with us unbelievers? Some are already in jail. First they came for the EDL.. Be proud heretics, stand firm, the Liberal God has feet of clay and is crumbling as we speak.

The liberal dream has become a nitemare and if the Establishment forces another referendum on the British people after they have voted unanimously and unequivocally to Leave it will bring hell down upon itself and its moribund decayed illiberal authoritarian polity.

Politics, the New Religion

God is dead. Religion is a spent force going through the motions, Islam is self imploding and can only be enforced by bullet and intimidation. Most people have turned away from religion's tired dictums and dictats long ago and maybe just admire the shells and carapaces of faith, the cathedrals and churches - more like musuems than living places of worship, houses of long departed symbols of antiquity, tombs and mauseleums of dead cultures and moribund scriptures, phantoms of past epochs of reverberating hollowness and empty echoes, tired rituals and a blood soaked history of tyranny and death.

What shall we replace religion with? We still need myths ,illusions, delusions, lies,conceits fables, subterfuge, mystery, incantations, stories, empty promises, salvation from our existence - who can perform such service for us -who can we trust  to take on this sacred role? Government! The State! Politicians! Let us elect them to serve us. High priests of the State. They will tell us what to do, they will have the answers.

Welfare -The New Jurusalem. They said so! They wouldn't lie would they? Tell us what to eat and drink, what to think, guide and regulate our every step o high priests of the State! We shall elect you to rule us. You know best. License, tax us please -what do we know? You are the initiated, our men and women of State. Statesmen.Save us!

'Ex' Communist Fears the Deep State!

Writing in the New Statesman (note the title) an 'ex' commie expresses his fears that the Deep State is plotting against Corbyn seeking to derail his bid to be prime minister. If Corbyn wins we will have the Deep State -nothing is more deep state than communism hello. How politicians love to invoke this hobgoblin bogey man of the deep state because it makes them seem they are on the same side as Joe Public, battling dark forces to protect poor Joe, waging war against 'unseen forces and powers', clandestine state operatives seeking to sabotage whatever the government of the day is. Hooey I say, it's an old ploy and the last refuge of the demagogue.

At least  the opposition deputy leader had the sense to distance himself from this conspiracist nonsense on the Today programme referring to it as 'fake news'. Mr Watson is also strategically distancing himself from Corbyn and not giving as speech at conference, perhaps positioning himself as a leader contender when Corbyn goes after another electoral defeat.

Why the Left Hates Financialization

On the bbc  r4s series on Capitalism today they discussed financialization with two guest who both just happened to be rabid anti capitalist 'thinkers'. Because financialization is a complex issue it lends itself to gross misrepresentation particularly by those who hate markets and freedom and prefer a command economy -because they have such a great long track record of success do they not?!

Without a rudimentary grasps of financialization the layman is at the mercy of the 'experts' who invariably have an ideological axe to grind but in the absence of some pre-knowledge of the field the public are in danger of being bamboozled by the tendentious caricatures of left wing economic journalists who proliferate in the liberal mainstream media.

I do not pretend to understand the complexities of financialisation but I know a hideous distortion and misrepresentation when I hear it and can offer a few general observations as follows. The Left only recognise one real form of work and that is physical labour, the financial field to them is characterized as rent seeking which they also bizarrely refer to as unearned income, anything that appreciates in value without the owner actually engaging in physical activity to increase its value.With such a narrow definition of earned wealth  anything outside it is dismissed as illegitimate and to be made illegal by state dictat and replaced by state run banks predicated on socialist egalitarian principles.

What is argued for and advocated on the abovementioned programme is effectively state control of the economy and this was presented as if it had never been attempted before -and all of this in the guise of discussing capitalism and it's future! It is clear that if such thinking prevails whatever capitalism has it is not a future and we are all Venezuela bound.

Predict That!

For some time I have been beating myself up about not having predicted the rise and rise of Corbyn, having got 3 of the major events right but this Corbyn thing came right out of left field so I really should go easy on myself regarding it.

Milliband was perhaps an outlier and although  I was concerned at the time about the Marxist reared twat, because he was just that it posed no real threat but no one was to predict what he would do namely to open up the party to the Militant Tendency who flooded back via his £3 Entryist membership rule change which effectively let the bats into the belfry.

Like a host that has been invaded by alien spores the party overnight was transformed into a basket case of motley Marxist loons for whom 1989 and the collapse of the Soviet Union was a year of Mourning and the goal was to reverse the dark night of the soul of the Blair years and to effectively fight the 20th century conflict between capital and labour  all over again.

Milliband in retrospect was the Trojan Horse and did his job as an enabler for Corbyn and then disappeared without trace but his role in the whole sordid affair will go down in the history books as the pivotal moment when Labour pressed the self destruct button bringing about the ultimate demise of the party.

A party comprised of activists on the Marxist fringe does not a party of government make. It gets its base from ignorant state 'educated' students but there are far more people in their 60's who will remember the nightmare years of the Left in the 70's who will be reluctant to vote for a party they no longer recognize so far to the Left has it travelled.

But predictions these days are best avoided and socialism should be seen more like a cancer that may be years in remission and then rears up unexpectedly even more virulent than before and the price of freedom as we know, but seem to have forgotten, is eternal vigilance.

Youtube is taking over the World!

Old media is worried. New media is eating its lunch! The government needs to do something! Wonder what that is...

Youtube -otherwise known as Satan Incarnate is using dastardly sinister means to hook people into watching more than they intended.Once someone has seen a youtube on eg lawnmowers they will then be presented with 5 other videos on the same subject. The poor viewer does not stand a chance, he has been watching for an hour, seduced by algorythmns that have now stolen his soul, his autonomy, his power of choice and led him down the road to perdition chased by lawnmowers.. This must be stopped!

Regulation! The bbc presenter called Justin is getting quit worked up at this point, most indignant. These tech giants must be regulated.

Hang on a minute, isn't youtube doing what all good businesses do -find out what your customer likes and give him more, similar products, stuff you know he likes? Isn't that what business does and has always done for chrissakes? When I read a book I liked I wanted to read more by the same author -I would go thru their canon. Were they seducing me, hooking me into spending dozens of hours devouring their master works? The fiends!

What about a dictionary? You would look up one word and end up reading it for half an hour seeing words you never seen before and building up your vocabulary. Satanic dictionaries.

Or a bar of chocolate. Should we regulate Mars so they cannot hook us on chocolate?

At least visitors to Youtube are volunteers unlike the Bbc where they are conscripts. Spot the subtle difference. So a State broadcaster is urging the State to regulate a private company because it is eating its lunch.You couldn't as Mr Littlejohn would say, make it up.
