Death once had a near-Sarah Palin experience.

calendar   Thursday - November 28, 2013

truthful statement is followed by the usual pc apology.

I should not be here at this moment but .... insomnia works in many wondrous and aggravating ways.  Loaded with pills and wine and still no sleep and busy day ahead, a day I think I might miss.
Ruff patch lately and unexpected visit from wife’s old school friend from across the country, totally unexpected and unannounced. But they were what Brits refer to as ‘mates’ which are close friends. Hadn’t seen each other in 20 or more years altho they kept in touch. So they descended on us with neither of us feeling up to scratch but what could we do?  Mad rush to straighten things and clear the room where we host guests etc.

Ok so anyway ... insomnia and booted this damn machine which I want to replace with bigger better faster and SSD drive.
Does MAC have SSD? I’m sure they must.  I am thinking tha at my age, it may well be the last puter I own so I want speed and easy use and I want it to have a bedroom, loo and kitchen too.

None of the above is why I am here at this moment. I just sidetrack myself a lot as most of you good folks know.
I haven’t turned on the heat in this room cos I need to be awake at least for this post which I want to share.  Colder it is less likely I’ll doze at the keyboard but do not look forward to the day’s coming activities. Crivens.

A few days ago I posted something our readers will by now have forgotten and no particular reason why you should even remember it.

Here’s a fraction of what I posted at the time.


inflammatory remarks about one minority community by a senior politician

I don’t know if it’ll make much difference, but this was a surprise coming from a senior politician.

I guess he isn’t running for elected office, but the pc crowd who always search out and find offense is sure to lock on to this one.

Pakistanis in UK fuelling corruption, says law chief: Attorney General warns politicians to ‘wake up’ to the threat posed by minority communities

Dominic Grieve made inflammatory remarks in a newspaper interview
He said minority communities have ‘endemic’ corruption
‘It’s mainly the Pakistani community, not the Indian community’, he claimed
Also said corruption could be found in ‘white Anglo Saxon community’
The senior law officer said that the authorities should take action to combat electoral fraud in areas with high migrant populations

By Gerri Peev

Corruption is rife in Britain’s Pakistani community, the country’s most senior law officer has warned.

Dominic Grieve said politicians needed to ‘wake up’ to the threat of corruption posed by minority communities using a ‘favour culture’.

UPDATE - UPDATE - UPDATE

This will surely coma as a shock to to you all.

Mr. Grieve has now issued a groveling apology for his remarks. 

The government’s chief legal adviser has apologised for any offence caused when he said corruption was “endemic” in some ethnic minority communities.

Attorney general Dominic Grieve told a newspaper the problem was not restricted to “any one community” but he was referring mainly to Pakistanis.

Some Asian commentators have described Mr Grieve’s remarks as “divisive”.

Later, Mr Grieve said he was wrong to give the impression that there was a problem in the Pakistani community.

In a statement, he said: “It is not my view. I believe the Pakistani community has enriched this country a great deal as I know full well from my extensive contact with the community over a number of years.

“I’m sorry if I have caused any offence.”

LONDON: Pakistanis outraged at the remarks of Britain’s Attorney General that they all are “corrupt” and come from a “favour culture” have demanded his resignation, describing his apology as half hearted and insufficient.

And so it goes.

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

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.
