All Aboard The Gravy Train

by john of gwent

You probably share some if not all of my opinions of the European Union. For a start I wouldn't mind SO much if just once WE ran OUR membership of this corrupt scam the way the FRENCH and the GERMANS ran theirs. By ignoring all manner of outpouring from the paper-pushers unless it works to their advantage. By blockading french truckers at dover and using the diesel in their fuel tanks to barbecue THEIR cargoes at the barricades for a start.

But perhaps my greatest contempt is reserved for the idiocy that says once every month the whole show uproots itself from the Belgian city of Brussels and migrates to the French one of Strasbourg. Yes, once a month SIX aircraft take a 2,500-strong army of staff, officials and interpreters on the 280 mile trip, accompanied by 15 truckloads of paperwork.

The whole idiotic 'bend over and take it like a french politician' mess SHOULD also have the green wellie tre hugger brigade up in arms too, as to go with all the hot air and shit that these wastes of space already create, this rolling circus puts 20,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide into the planet's atmosphere each year.

So, spurred on by this criminal waste, the French, who have the presidency have struck a blow for common sense and the planet.

They decided to do away with the whole sorry shambles, right ? WRONG They've decided to let the train take the strain. They've inaugurated a new train service to take them door to door instead of the six aircraft.

But this is no bog-standard Virgin Trains offering. This is a 'Thalys' Train Grand Vitesse. Now I've ridden one of these myself, after the damn fools at Ashford put us on the WRONG Eurostar and sent us to Gare Du Nord instead of Bruxelles. Leaving us in the wrong bloody country. But the way they said sorry was four first class Thalys Tickets. And I can tell you now when the French SNCF and the Belgian French SNCB get together to run a restaurant service, it ain't no little chef. They are, to be blunt, "les gonades du chien" of the railway.

If I had my way I'd put the buggers in the third class wooden seat carriages the italians ran in the early eighties. Hardly the height of confort but a journey equivalent to Swansea to Fishguard cost me twenty pence in 1982. Or even better, maybe we could borrow the cattle trucks from the sidings at auswitz and put THEM back into service.

But no, nothing but the finest gravy is allowed on this train. And the ticket price is fully refunded through their "claim now sod the receipts who cares anyway" expense policy.

I imagine Mr Nigel Farrage will be enjoying the ride. All I hope is that there is a political party out there who can rid us of this opulent, decadent waste of money, time, and oil.

Blogburst: Hamas sues UK blogger for telling the truth
Harry's Place is being sued by a mr Mohammed Sawalha, the President of the British Muslim Initiative, which has been linked to both Hamas and the Islamic Brotherhood. Specifically, they reported on an instance where mr. Sawalha referred to 'the Jewish Lobby', after first being quoted as speaking of 'Evil Jews'. Neoconstant is organizing a blogburst. Head over there to read the whole story. Or get it at the source.

Much of the British blogosphere is up in arms. And rightly so. It is bad enough we have sub-civilized countries working towards an international arrest warrant for Western politicians they do not like very much. At least they have the high profile and connections to ensure media access and exposure.

But how is a lonely little blogger going to defend itself against a proven terrorist outfit with all the aid money the world grants these lowlifes to prop up the idea of a 'two state solution'? This is not just a UK item. This concerns all Euro bloggers and, more generally, all bloggers who still feel Western Civ is something to keep around for a little while longer.

Comments The Telegraph
Posted by SALLY on May 27, 2008 10:04 PM. A very accurate post. The latter day Lenins like MacShane, and fellow travellers of the Fabian Society, are not flying their true colours, of a red flag, with a hammer and sickle stuck in the corner, or wearing their boots and buttoned up tunics, topped off with a Ushanka with a red star stuck in the middle. They hid the red star emblem and trappings of their true philosophy and fronted a red rose, - you fell for it.

So you voted them in three times, and you took your eyes off the ball for eleven years, while they dosed you on easy credit, and hyped house prices. They created an illiterate and innumerate underclass, drunk on cheap alcohol, brain dead on soap operas and cheap flights to Ibitha. They not merely permitted, but encouraged them to roam loose, to mug and knife the innocent, unchecked by one hundred and thirty five thousand, PC police sitting in their PC police stations, contributing to the raison d’être of the National Statistics Office, and the ‘uman rights act for criminals, instead of getting out on the street, on foot, fighting crime.

Simultaneously you completely failed to notice, that the elitist leadership of the dinosaur philosophy of international socialism, was destroying your country from within, steering you to bankruptcy, and selling you to the EU.

Came the dawn, no more credit, and daily knife crime, you have yourselves to blame. There is no such thing as a free lunch, and there is nothing like a swift kick in the wallet to get attention, is there? – Wake Up. Get rid of the likes of MacShane, and their Fabian Fellow Travellers.

Muslims again attacking the weak and again it's in Europe and again our media remain silent.
When are we going to take action, when it's too late and bodies are left rotting in the streets?
Denmark's greenlanders again, this is an attempt to wear down the Danes with constant harrasment.
Where is the UN WHEN EUROPEANS ARE TARGETED?
Fxxx OUR POLITICIANS WE SHOULD START PROTECTING OURSELVES HERE IN THE UK AND OTHER EUROPEANS THAT CAN'T.
ANYONE KNOW A SOLDIER..TALK THEM OUT OF FIGHTING FOR THIS MARXIST GOVERNMENT WE NEED THEM HERE.

Laine you suggest voting for a party that will stop islam in its tracks, well as a English person that here in England is impossibe. Why you may ask and the answer is simple, we have no party that is willing to do so. All of them Labour, Conservative, Liberals, they all pander to the muslims in our country, the only party that is willing to stop these scum is the British National Party and thanks to the muslim loving press here the BNP has been labeled nazi and racist. For my part I would and will fight the muslims to save my country. But expect help from any political party here to change the way they cowardly pander to these muslim scum is a fairy tale. No Im afraid the only thing that will stop islam in England is the English people fighting (as I'm willing to do) these scum on our streets. All the political parties here (apart from the BNP) are traitors and should face charges of treason against our people

@George:

"All of them Labour, Conservative, Liberals, they all pander to the muslims in our country, the only party that is willing to stop these scum is the British National Party and thanks to the muslim loving press here the BNP has been labeled nazi and racist."

Yes, but why don't the British people vote for the BNP, even in spite of the fact that they are labeled nazi and racist? Do they wait for an explicit permission from their government to do so? Do they wait for some authority figure to declare that it is okay to vote for the BNP? That will never happen.

May I ask you, if you vote for the BNP yourself?

I am from Germany and the situation you described seems to be very similar to the situation over here. Of course every nationalist party will be labeled nazi and racist, should that surprise us? What surprises me is that almost all people are so cowed down by these smears that they can't even act defiantly in the voting booth, where nobody sees whom they vote for. After having talked to many people in my country about it, I found that even those who are most critical about Islam, mass immigration and the current political establishment often do not vote for one of the parties opposing it themselves. Actually even the anti-Islamic bloggers do not endorse these parties. Instead they will say in defense that elections are actually useless or that democracy is a flawed system, anyway. Sometimes they take refuge in conspiracy theories. I am really at a loss about how to persuade these people to actually vote for the "forbidden" parties and not only bitch forever on their blogs. Ideas anyone?


Politicians tell of Europeans now at peace. from Germany the UK every other country is feeling under threat.
Danger is present when a population feels this way.

Look around where you live and see what needs doing in your area.
Then see how much is given to support the entry of 12 more muslim/arab states into the EUSSR in 2010 under the Barcelona declaration signed upto in 1995 in your name.
.............
The European Commission has supported the Barcelona Process with the provision of €16 billion from the Community budget [20 KB] since 1995. Loans from the European Investment Bank amount to approximately €2 billion per year.

Stephen Hockman QC


UK Sharia “Vital And Inevitable”
Another top British barrister has called for elements of Islamic Sharia law to be introduced into the UK.

Former chairman of Britain’s Bar Council Stephen Hockman QC said last week that “It is vital and inevitable that sharia will become part of British law in some shape or form.POLYGAMY..TAX RATES. ENOUGH.

WHAT 1.7 MILLION...LOL
“Given the world situation and our own substantial Muslim population it is vital that we now look at ways to integrate Muslim culture into our own traditions. Otherwise we will find that there is a significant section of our society which is increasingly alienated, with very dangerous results.”


Hey Buddy! A section of a society that follows the society’s laws should not be alienated. They should be law-abiding citizens.


His comments follow similar remarks from Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers (England and Wales most senior judge) who said that Sharia could play a role in family and financial matters for Muslims.

A QC HE MUST KNOW THE DANGER OF ALLOWING ANY SHARIA. BAD ENOUGH OUR BANKS HAVE BECOME DHIMMI BANKS!
INFILTRATION WAS A GREAT SUCCESS OBVIOUSLY.
GEN DANNATT WILL NOT BE PROMOTED AFTER ALL HE WARNED ABOUT ISLAM IN 2006. FILLING A VACUUM IN ENGLAND...NOW THE BOTTLER HAS LOST TRUST IN HIM.
DANNATT SHOULD BE ON THE THRONE NOT KICKED OUT BY BLOODY COMMIES.

We're not mad but we have been too trusting - something along the lines of an Englishman's word is his bond. Everyone in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, who was brought up to think that a handshake was a binding agreement, must think again. Our own sense of honesty, integrity and fairplay has been used against us. Our strengths have been turned into weaknesses and used against us. Unless more of the electorate realise this and vote BNP, it will be too late to do anything.
