another farm family victims of black savagery, no worlk wide outcry or threat of sanctions

Kinky haired, thick lip, savage darkies on another killing rampage.

Anything new here?

This article is a double page spread in the morning paper.  Apparently in this case the family wasn’t able to defend itself and even when they are, they are generally outnumbered. 

When South Afrika enjoyed apartheid, that part that bathed and read books, the western world was up in arms are those terrible white settlers who built the roads and the infrastructure such as existed, because they kept the black folk down. Well it seems not far enough down judging by the happenings over the last decade and today’s outrage another example of the savage mindset of that politically approved majority.
Even in the worst examples of apartheid, there were damn few outrages on this scale if any at all.  This story is pretty upsetting.  Those whites still there should pack what they can and get the hell out and let that miserable place stink and sink in it’s own filth and die.  There isn’t one that is worth a white life.
And speaking of that, even during apartheid, there were no white gangs raping old women and slaughtering babies with their mothers.  They didn’t think in those terms or act in those ways no matter what other criticism one may have about them.  And personally, I never had any.

Mandela’s passing and the looming threat of a race war against South Africa’s whites. As a widow mourns the latest murdered Afrikaner farmer, a chilling dispatch from a nation holding its breath

Roelof du Plessis, 46 shot on his farm outside Pretoria by gang of black intruders

Fears rise that killings are part of a systematic bid to drive white people out of South Africa

President Jacob Zuma known to sing ‘struggle song’ about killing white Afrikaners

By Andrew Malone In Pretoria

The horror started just before midnight on Wednesday this week.

After listening to the latest television news about the health of Nelson Mandela, a South African family living not far from the former President’s hospital unit turned in for the night.

But Roelof and Laura du Plessis, a married couple with four children who live on a heavily fortified farm outside Pretoria, did not have a peaceful night’s rest.

In fact they were about to become the latest victims of what white pressure groups in this troubled nation say is nothing less than a savage war against them.

Hearing noises outside their home, Mr du Plessis, 46, got out of bed and ran outside.

To his horror, he found his 19-year-old son being held with a gun to his head by a gang of five armed black attackers.

Father and son were ordered to lie on the ground. The invaders did not ask for money or the keys to the expensive vehicles in the drive. They were there only to terrorise and kill.

Hearing voices outside, Laura, 44, came out of her bedroom to investigate — and her torch illuminated an awful scene as the gang pointed guns at her husband.

Her son managed to get up and sprint off into the darkness when the men were confused by the flashlight. But Du Plessis was not so lucky.

The intruders opened fire at once, shooting him six times through the throat, lungs and abdomen.

As he writhed on the ground in agony, the men ran off into the night leaving empty bullet cartridges littering the yard.

In the darkness, Laura attempted heart massage on her husband, who could still talk despite his appalling injuries, but to no avail.

When I arrived at the farm on Thursday and was invited in by Mrs du Plessis, I found her with blood still caked under her fingernails after she’d cradled her dying husband.

‘He was shot through the lungs and I was doing CPR,’ she told me, between huge sobs. ‘He said “please go and fetch the car and take me to hospital”. But he was too badly hurt and he died in my arms.’

In the morning, when white friends from neighbouring farms followed the trail of the raiders, they discovered the men had carefully cut through fences and skirted areas with security patrols — suggesting how closely they had planned their route of attack.

‘It is definitely coming down to a race thing,’ Laura du Plessis told me as she was comforted by her family. ‘They hate white people. We have never had a fight with any black people. I always stop and give others a lift. We employ black people.

‘My husband fought for me. I am grateful that he wasn’t tied up and forced to watch me being raped before he was killed. He was an amazing man. He was my life.’

The statistics — and the savagery of the killings — appear to support claims by these residents that white people, and farmers in particular, are being targeted by black criminals.

Little wonder that what unfolded on the Du Plessis homestead has sent tremors of fear through the three-million-strong white community.

Last month alone there were 25 murders of white landowners, and more than 100 attacks, while Afrikaner protest groups claim that more than 4,000 have been killed since Mandela came to power — twice as many as the number of policemen who have died.

It is not just the death toll, but the extreme violence that is often brought to bear, that causes the greatest fear in the white community.

Documented cases of farm killings make for gruesome reading, with children murdered along with their parents, one family suffocated with plastic bags and countless brutal rapes of elderly women and young children.

These horrors have prompted Genocide Watch — a respected American organisation which monitors violence around the world — to claim that the murders of ‘Afrikaner farmers and other whites is organised by racist communists determined to drive whites out of South Africa, nationalise farms and mines, and bring on all the horrors of a communist state’.

At a centenary gathering of the African National Congress last year, Zuma was filmed singing a so-called ‘struggle song’ called Kill The Boer (the old name for much of the white Afrikaner population).

As fellow senior ANC members clapped along, Zuma sang: ‘We are going to shoot them, they are going to run, Shoot the Boer, shoot them, they are going to run, Shoot the Boer, we are going to hit them, they are going to run, the Cabinet will shoot them, with the machine-gun, the Cabinet will shoot them, with the machine-gun . . .’

Alongside him was a notorious character called Julius ‘Juju’ Malema, a former leader of the ANC youth league, who is now Zuma’s bitter enemy and is reportedly planning to launch a new political party after Mandela’s death.

A bogeyman to white South Africans, Malema is popular among young blacks, and has also been an enthusiastic singer of Kill The Boer and another song called Bring Me My Machine-Gun.

Polls this week showed a huge surge in support among young black South Africans for his policies, which he says will ignore reconciliation, and fight for social justice in an ‘onslaught against [the] white male monopoly’.

With chilling echoes of neighbouring Zimbabwe, where dictator Robert Mugabe launched a murderous campaign to drive white farmers off the land in 2000, Malema wants all white-owned land to be seized without compensation, along with nationalisation of the country’s lucrative mines.

Ominously, Malema, 32, who wears a trademark beret and has a fondness for Rolex watches, this month promised his new party will take the land from white people without recompense and give it to blacks.

‘We need the land that was taken from our people, and we are not going to pay for it,’ he said. ‘We need a party that will say those who were victims of apartheid stand to benefit unashamedly, and those who perpetuated apartheid must show remorse and behave in a manner that says they regret their conduct.’

Enthusiastically backed by Winnie Mandela, Nelson’s second wife — who is still hugely popular in South Africa despite her suspected role in several murders — Malema is a charismatic figure who once threw a BBC correspondent out of a press conference for asking about his wealthy lifestyle.

His words have done nothing to allay the fears of white communities, some of which have taken extreme measures to protect themselves.

This week I visited Kleinfontein in Pretoria, a white-only community of 1,000 men, women and children who live behind high fences, with a gatehouse manned by men in military fatigues, who also carry out regular patrols of the grounds to prevent black intruders entering.

Anyone without an appointment with an official resident is refused entry. If they are black, they will not get in at all.

Inside, there is a shopping mall, while the town has its own water supply and sewage system. All manual work is carried out by white residents.

There is a rugby pitch, opulent homes overlooking miles of open countryside where antelope and zebra roam, and a hospital for the elderly residents.

Most crucially of all, in a country with 60 murders a day, there is no armed robbery, murder or rape in Kleinfontein. ‘An old lady can draw money here without any fear,’ says Marisa Haasbroek, a resident, mother of two teenage girls, and my guide for the morning.

‘It’s safe, quiet and peaceful. It’s not racist — it is about protecting our Afrikaner cultural identity.’

Like all the residents, she is descended from the first Afrikaners, the Dutch settlers who came to South Africa and were driven into the African interior on the famous Great Trek during the war with the British from 1899 to 1902.

Kleinfontein has been in existence since Mandela’s first presidency in 1994 — but its existence remained largely unknown until reports last year that black police officers had been barred from entry to the property.

I think there will be trouble,’ Anna, an elderly lady tending her garden inside the all-white compound, tells me.

‘There may be tribal warfare first between the black races. Then they might turn on us.’

Standing near a sign written in Afrikaans stating ‘ons is hier om te bly’ (we are here to stay), Marike, another resident, was convinced that there is a sinister plot to kill all whites.

‘You don’t attack farms and rape 80-year-old women with broken bottles and kill their husbands for a mobile phone,’ Marike says. ‘People say it’s not genocide — but it is.’

Such uncertainty about the future has been given added credence by the tawdry, shameful scenes surrounding Mandela’s death bed — where his family were last night continuing to squabble over where he should be buried and who should get the most loot from tourists visiting the grave.

Up In The Air, Upside Down

france_flag_2  france_flag_2  france_flag_2



Ten years ago, Airbus Military began working on a new transport aircraft that would take Europe into the next century of aerial warfare.

Backed by seven European members of NATO: Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Turkey, and the United Kingdom, the aircraft program suffered years of delays and cost €20 billion ($26.1 billion).

Now, the A400M Atlas is almost here.

Scheduled for first delivery to the French army in time for July 14 Bastille Day celebrations, the turboprop plane is designed to be capable of everything its new owners need, from midair refueling to paratrooper drop-offs to landings on short and unpaved runways.

It can even carry more than 80,000 pounds of cargo, while remaining remarkably agile in the air.


Well, yay for Airbus. Seriously. This looks like a great airplane.

Except for the T shaped tail, the A400M looks quite a lot like the Lockheed C-130 Hercules turboprop aircraft that the US has been flying since the 1950s. But while the two aircraft have similar wingspans, the A400M’s fuselage is half again longer (cargo bay is 13x13x58 vs 12x9x40), and it has engines with nearly three times the power. So it can carry about 210% more cargo mass (80,000lb vs 37,216lb), and do it while flying a third faster (485mph vs 366mph), fly just as far (2000 miles), yet land on the same kind of rough short runways. The A400M fills the niche between the C-130J and the massive jet powered C-141 Starlifter (retired).

Word for the day: anhedral. Dihedral is the upwards “V” profile of the wings of an airplane when seen from the front. Anhedral is that same kind of “V”, except the wings tilt downwards, like “^”. The A400M has anhedral wings. Dihedral wings are most often used on low wing airplanes, and help the aircraft fly smoothly with minimal rolling. It’s a pendulum thing. Think water in the bottom of a cup. Anhedral wings are most often used on high wing airplanes, like the B-52 or this A400M. Works the same way, just backwards. The airplane hangs from the wing, like a pendulum weight on a Steadi-Cam. Either way, as the picture above shows, the new A400M is quite agile, considering it’s a turboprop cargo plane that flies nearly as fast as a jet airliner.

Not bad. And it only took them 60 years to build a possibly better plane than the C-130.

No Bollywood Career For You!

Indian Reporter “Caste” Aside For Disrespectful Reporting



A reporter for the channel News Express in India has been fired after shooting a stand-up while covering flooding in the Uttarakhand region, sitting on the shoulders of a flood victim.

“You cannot ride on someone’s back for a story,” said News Express head Nishant Chaturvedi. “We terminated him on Tuesday.”

But Narayan Pargaien is blaming his cameraman for the stunt and says he was just doing it as a way to help the man.
...
“It wasn’t my idea to begin with, but there was this man who took me to his home and asked me to report the damage he had suffered. His house was in a miserable condition and he had lost a lot in the flood, and was left with very little food and water.”

“We helped him with some food and some money and he was grateful to us and wanted to show me some respect [by carrying me across the river], as it was the first time someone of my level had visited his house,” Pargaien says.


Of his level. Yes, the caste system is alive and well in India, despite decades of denial. The World’s Largest Democracy® comes in levels. All have equality, but some are far more equal than others.



India’s loss is our gain. I’ve worked with legions of folks from India, and while I can’t claim any deep understanding of their culture I’ve at least been exposed to a lot of it, from their many holidays to the prejudices built into them by their social hierarchy. “Call me anything you want”, a beautiful young Indian woman co-worker once told me, “just don’t call me Patel.” A surname of the lowest caste. Untouchables of some kind it seems.

And blocked from advancement merely by their family name, the Patels come over here by the boatloads, and become doctors, lawyers, pharmacists, computer programmers, businessmen, etc, left and right.  Good for them.

Katrina of the Great White North

Alberta flood disaster plan: Evacuate the whole town, then send the Mounties back to break into every home and steal their guns

imageSounds just like Katrina, only without Heineken Guy wading by with a tub full of stolen beer.

High River citizens right to be suspicious as RCMP changes story over removal of guns

On Friday afternoon, when Mounties responding to the recent major floods in southern Alberta sent out a media release concerning the force’s removal of firearms from flooded-out homes, the tone had changed.

Gone were the Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s prior references to firearms having been “seized.” Now it was all about Mounties “taking possession” of firearms.

Also absent were all the earlier allusions to the RCMP having taken guns that had been “unsafely stored.” Now it was all about finding firearms that were “in plain view” and the force had “no way of assuring [would] remain secure.”

What hasn’t changed, of course, are the facts of what occurred.

The small town of High River (a tragically apt name in recent weeks), south of Calgary, has been devastated. The 13,000 inhabitants were evacuated and haven’t been allowed back yet. RCMP officers, as part of search and rescue teams, moved through the town after the waters rose, forcing their way into houses to check for survivors, stranded pets and the bodies of anyone who may have perished.

This is all to the good — indeed, it’s part of their duties as first responders. And the emergency declarations in place in southern Alberta certainly gave them the authority to enter private homes without need of a warrant.

But why were they removing firearms?

According to the RCMP’s original version of events, when officers were “seizing” firearms that were stored “unsafely,” they had a plausible explanation, though one that left many (myself included) uncomfortable. The RCMP left itself wide open to suspicions that while engaged in “search and rescue” operations, officers also took advantage of the access rights granted by the state of emergency to have a little bit of a look around at what people get up to inside their homes.

Gee, this is awful. And those good Canadians already have all those “common sense” gun laws, and that national registry that works ever so well. And they’re all super law abiding good little Socialist. So why is their own Police Sate abusing their powers? BECAUSE THEY CAN. And you, Joe Molson, can’t do nothing about it, eh?

Guns? Whatever. Somewhere around here. I think.

US Park Police: 2,000 guns, 640 officers, 100s of missing firearms



The federal government’s oldest law enforcement group, the US Park Police is tasked with guarding federal monuments and acting as Forest Rangers in urban public parks. Funny, this group has a SWAT team. I guess just in case the raccoons start to riot or something. They also own half a thousand M16s. I guess just in case they have to fight a war at the Washington Monument.

But what these cops seeming DON’T have is gun control. As in the “hey, have you seen my machine gun? It was right here last year!” kind of gun control. Lost, stolen, strayed, or mislaid. Somebody has misplaced hundreds and hundreds of firearms. Oops.

The U.S. Park Police is failing to adequately keep track of its firearms, creating an environment in which weapons are vulnerable to theft or misuse, according to a government report released Friday.

Due to “a lackadaisical attitude toward firearms management” by commanders, investigators said they found “credible evidence of conditions that would allow for theft and misuse of firearms, and the ability to conceal the fact if weapons were missing.”

In a force of approximately 640 officers, the report says, hundreds of weapons were not properly accounted for. The auditors also allege that the agency has more than 1,400 extra weapons, including 477 military-style automatic and semiautomatic rifles.

The head of the Park Police officers’ union, Ian Glick, said there are shortcomings in the “antiquated system of weapon tracking,” but public safety was never put in jeopardy.

“None of these weapons were ever seized in a crime, or found on someone who shouldn’t have one,” he said.

No, perhaps not. Not yet anyway. Still, that doesn’t excuse the attitude.

The U.S. Park Police has lost track of a huge supply of handguns, rifles and shotguns, according to a report released Thursday on the law enforcement agency responsible for safeguarding the National Mall and critical American landmarks.

In the scathing report, the inspector general’s office of the Department of Interior faults staff at the agency for having no idea how many weapons they control and says the department has no clear policies or procedures for investigating missing weapons. The office said top managers, including the police chief, have shown a “lackadaisical attitude toward firearms management.”

“Historical evidence indicates that this indifference is a product of years of inattention to administrative detail and management principles,” deputy inspector general Mary Kendall wrote to Jonathan Jarvis, the director of the National Park Service, in a letter that accompanies the report.

Glick Calls Glitch on Glocks
While the tracking system has its failings, he said, “all the weapons are accounted for. Every weapon, every stick of ammo, everything is accounted for. But it’s not accounted for in the National Park Service weapons inventory computer system.”

The National Park Service declined to respond to Glick’s specific assertion. But it said it has immediately ordered a complete weapons inventory, to address the “significant, systemic firearms management problems” identified in the report.

Oh, so it’s merely utterly inept record keeping. Come on, who has time for that? We’ve got to guard this giant granite statue of some guy on a horse! You never know where terrorists or graffiti artists will strike next! Lock ‘n load! Oh wait, can’t find my gun. Screw it, just buy some more. 

Yeah right.

You citizens though had better keep your guns properly stored, segregated, and secured. With all appropriate permits. And no more ammo than we think is sufficient. And heaven help you if one gun goes missing two whole days and you don’t report it to the authorities.

Boy am I getting tired of the daily government scandals that boil down to “Are you stupid, or evil? Or both?” It’s like they’re our overlords and have no accountability whatsoever.

Big Brother Descends

The philosophy of NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg, run amok.


Cure Obesity: Tax The Food

There may be an economic cure for the nation’s obesity: Hike the price of food.

Raising the price of a calorie for home consumption by 10 percent might lower the percentage of body fat in youths about 8 or 9 percent, according to new research from the National Bureau of Economic Research.

“An increase in the price of a calorie regardless of its source would improve obesity outcomes,” according to a working paper that three researchers prepared for the private, nonprofit bureau.

As the nation confronts an epidemic of flab, many experts have pointed a finger at low food prices as a cause, leading to proposals for taxes on sugary drinks, fast-food and junk food, as well as reductions in government farm subsidies.



I have a better solution.

The majority of obesity seems to be among the lower income classes. The people who are more likely than not to be on the dole. So stop handing out SNAP money in urban and densely suburban areas, and set up soup kitchens every 5 or 10 blocks. Hire an army of cafeteria ladies for minimum wage, and have them dole out lower calorie, balanced nutrition meals three times a day. And hey, the recipients will get some exercise walking back and forth all the time. Don’t make the food terrible, but don’t go out of your way to make it any Guantanamo Bay epicurean festival either. What, you don’t like the yeast cake and red beans with a side salad meal on offer? Well, go get a job and buy what you want. This is what’s being served today. And every day. Although there is no reason there couldn’t be a rotating menu. Monday is chicken stew and dumplings kind of thing.

Naturally everyone would have to show their photo ID with a fingerprint (haha, the government runs both through the criminal databases monthly!). Every meal the IDs get scanned, and a “fed meal” box electronically checked off. No ID card, no food. Double dippers are immediately “fined” the next two meals, equivalent to the old parental punishment of being sent to bed without your supper. But we’ll be nice, so here’s a 12oz cup of vitamin enriched nutri-Tang. No credit is given for missed meals, but the soup kitchens are open 24-7.

The obesity epidemic would be over in a year. And unemployment (in areas where low income jobs exist but are not being applied for) would drop like a rock.

The same idea applies for clothing purchases under EBT. If such a thing exists; I don’t have one so I don’t know. But if it does, then you get your clothing allotment from the thrift shop. Government run of course.

We’d save billions.

So I’m online yesterday trying to set up this new cable modem.

I’ve got a chat session open with tech support, and “we” have been trying to make this thing work for more than an hour. My computer is downstairs, the cable modem and WiFi thing is upstairs. The process of troubleshooting entails the usual plug it in, unplug it and wait, take out the battery, put the battery back in, disconnect the cables, put the cables back on, press the reset button, blah blah. So I’m getting a good aerobics workout in going up and downstairs from one end of the condo to the other.

I chatted that I was getting tired of going back and forth so much.
“I know!” the tech lady writes back, “Please bare with me and we’ll get through this together.”
I instantly shot back “Sounds good to me, but let’s use spell-check until we know each other better.”

20 minutes later I get an “oops! spelling!” response.  We got the thing up and running finally, and I’m going to initialize the modem’s built in WiFi all by myself. So I can have 2 networks running here if I feel like it.

And a Big FU to the PC Publishing Companies

Redacted? No, just put below the fold. I lost my cool over the horrible way that Paula Deen is being treated. Instant pariah because she said the bad word after being held up at gunpoint. Thirty three years ago. So let’s hang her out to dry and ruin her life. So I had myself a nice racist rant, which I only thought fair in light of not just the Paula Deen situation, but the “dimwitness” in the George Zimmerman trial and how the media is soft pedaling that her “nasty ass cracka” remark isn’t racist. That’s right, a term made up by Blacks to disparage Whites is not actually racist. Therefore, equality under the law and all that, in my opinion no other racist term has any more validity. If one is meaningless then they all are. So I used it with aplomb.

My ultimate editor, Mom, writes me and says “this is not one of your smartest moves”. Yup, she’s right. As always.

So I hid the rant below the fold. If flagrant n-wording offends your sensitive little soul, don’t look.

I wish we lived in a world where a significant percentage of a given ethnic group wasn’t completely amoral and nearly feral. But they are, and not even generations of uplifting efforts are ever going to help. Sad but true. But pretending that they don’t exist is living a lie, and if it’s OK for the gloves to come off of one hand, then it’s OK for the gloves to come off the other. And to destroy the life of a nice lady because she happens to be from the deep South and once used a pejorative under extreme duress half a lifetime ago is such hypocrisy ... and I come up punching.

Tea Is For Terrorist

Obamabots: 26% Believe Tea Party People Are Terrorists

Just As Big A Threat As Jihadis



Half of all voters consider radical Muslims the bigger terrorist threat facing the nation, but supporters of President Obama consider the Tea Party to be as big a danger.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters consider radical Muslims to be the bigger threat to the United States today. Thirteen percent (13%) view the Tea Party that way, and another 13% consider other political and religious extremists to be the larger danger. Six percent (6%) point to local militia groups.

...

Conservatives overwhelmingly see radical Muslims as the greater terror threat. Liberals are fairly evenly divided between radical Muslims and the Tea Party.

Twenty percent (20%) of government workers see the Tea Party as the nation’s bigger terror threat. Twelve percent (12%) of private sector workers hold that view.

Obama has supporters left? What, the two that hold his socks up?

Don’t forget that the Tea Party is racist too, unlike those fun loving “radical” Muslims.

But ... crivens ... a solid quarter of Obama’s minions, and an entire fifth of government workers? Man, do we need a purge.

Personally, I blame Joe Biden. Somebody told him that a large part of the upper income Tea Party folks are terroirists and oenophiles who love to wine, and he just took it from there.

lets declare an amnesty for illegals. after all, it works in the states.

Apparently the American lesson hasn’t been learned here.  Sure thing. First give illegals a break, give them amnesty. Wait a few years and do it all over again because of course your borders will be even more over run. But hey ... declare another amnesty and Bob’s your uncle ...  a lower illegal immigrant statistic.
Heck, it works in the USA. Doesn’t it? Well, it works for one group anyway.

But this is Europe and specifically the UK.
Maybe here, this fellow has a valid point.  ??  And it’s true here as it is in the USA, that the Conservatives are seen pretty much as anti immigrant and especially anti black, brown, purple,blue or any other color that doesn’t match ours.  True or not, that is the perception. 

Grant all illegal immigrants an amnesty, says Conservative MP Nadhim Zahawi

One-off gesture designed to make Tories more attractive to ethnic minorities

Illegal immigrants should be given a one-off amnesty allowing them to remain in Britain, in a “seismic” policy shift designed to improve relations between the Conservatives and ethnic minorities, a prominent Tory MP has said.

Nadhim Zahawi’s provocative call will put him at odds with the party’s leadership, which strongly opposes the move, although it has been advocated by the London Mayor, Boris Johnson. Opponents argue that offering an amnesty would make Britain a magnet for immigrants.

But Mr Zahawi, who is tipped as a future minister, insisted the step could boost the economy – and help repair the Tories’ tarnished reputation among minority voters. He said: “We shouldn’t be afraid to think outside of our comfort zone.” At the last election, the Tories picked up just 16 per cent of the black and Asian vote, while more than two-thirds supported Labour. “Our failure to appeal to ethnic minorities should send loud alarm bells ringing in Downing Street and Central Office,” Mr Zahawi said. “Unless we act now this electoral penalty will only get worse.”

Mr Zahawi suggested an amnesty for the estimated 570,000 illegal immigrants would have a dramatic impact on the party’s standing among minority voters. He said it would make financial sense as the vast hidden economy cheats the Treasury out of billions of pounds and undercuts the pay and conditions of low-income workers.

He said recipients should be given leave to remain rather than full citizenship, limiting their entitlement to benefits, and the move should be combined with an overhaul of border controls.

The MP for Stratford-upon-Avon’s call came in an essay for a new think-tank, provisionally called Right Revival, to be launched next month, with the aim of finding ways of reaching out to sections of the electorate hostile to the Tories.

Gee, I have to confess it seems so odd to read that this guy, who no doubt is a good man and is a conservative and does worry about the Labour vote and does have a good point with regard to them and fear of another Labour government; it just seems so weird to know he represents a place like Stratford-upon-Avon.  Which says more about me than it does about him.  If you’d have said just 50 years ago, that a guy with a name like Nadhim Zahawi would someday represent this core of Englishness, and as a conservative, you’d have been laughed straight into the loony bin.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
