Democracy running on empty

As you’ll appreciate the pickings are pretty slim here on Bignews Margate of late but fortunately there’s a comprehensive list of Thanet’s bloggers in the side bar. I’ll just run through a few things that caught my eye this last week or so

Nazi News

Firstly along with every man and his dog its difficult not to have noticed Nick Griffin who made more news than was called for, on the “question time” issues, it seems to me and everybody else that the BBC handled this muppet with some incredible clumsiness, I cannot recall anyone else who had their appearance trailed weeks in advance and even by BBC standards the unusually patronising and heavy handed way Question attacked Mr Griffins and his questionable ideology past and present was unnecessarily hostile and did the almost impossible of making him look like a victim of abuse.BNPleader

God knows why the BBC changed the format of question time, to that of Kangaroo court, not trusting the public to hear the views of a man who’s expressed views that in the past appear to have been sympathetic with neo-Nazi groups.

Did we lose anything by this, yes this sort of hysterical crass treatment of the apparently eccentric leader of the BNP, makes it difficult to discuss the legitimate question of migration which as a result of Labours misguided policy has resulted in large scale job losses by UK citizens, prompting many of us to ask why is it, that UK citizens who wish to work can’t find jobs or have found that wages have dropped to such low levels as to make it impossible to work.

Royal News

manofthepeople The Duke of York has made a powerful case for Britain to become a republic, as Royals often do, Prince Andrew speaks with all the authority of someone of those who come from, a background immense wealth and privilege, clearly demonstrating how out of touch he is by suggesting that Bankers’ bonuses are minute, I suppose the thing is, Andrew is just showing empathy for a similar class of privilege people whose wealth vastly exceeds their worth to society.

Labour sell out labour

oink Labour support for working people has once again been shown to be non existent as Labour MP’s and Ministers like the down to earth Peter “what a chump” Mandelson have shown no support for postal workers, who have not unreasonably suggested that they and the management get together to under the guidance of Acas (the government agency set up to help settle industrial disputes) to resolve disputes with management.

I like most would hate to see Labour ever revert to the grim extremes of loony lefties of the seventies and eighties with leaders like Michael Foot but come on, Mandelson has for me the appearance of a toadying Tory who happens to be more comfortable with bankers than working people, how sad that as a government minister, he can not back or encourage a government owned business, to use a government created agency, to resolve a damaging postal dispute in the national interest.

I suppose, most senior Labour members MPs, Lords’ & Lady's’ and the like are just too damned bothered about sorting out their expenses (blatant fraud in a many cases), and pensions knowing of course that by June next year many will be in receipt of richly deserved P45’s.

Seasonal Affective Disorder

As you can see I’m about as morose, as its possible for a middle aged git to be. Perhaps its the time of year or the suspension, going on my car put me in a bad mood, still I have to Thank Kwik Fit for fixing it within half an hour.

Dane Valley by - election

Did I read somewhere that the Tory candidate thanked Mr Broadhurst for resigning? I thought he made a botch of resigning? No doubt Labour will be suggesting they give a toss for the people of Dane Valley, when nationally are only interested in sucking up to bankers, business leaders and screwing the taxpayer. As for the Liberals they have my vote I think, its clear to me that nationally Liberals are about the only party that represent the interests of ordinary people in any honest way.

It would be nice to see Labour and Tories upset, particularly Sandy Ezekiel the Tory Leader who so often mentions his concern for Margate and lives in Broadstairs and Clive Hart who will to do what’s necessary to defend Margate Flower beds, bus routes etc even if means looking glum and staring down the lens of a camera. see Mark Nottingham’s blog.


  1. Racism begins with our families, parents, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, grandparents, people we admire, respect and love.

    However, as we grow and mature we come to the realization that what we were told by our family when we were children were slanted lies base on their prejudices. We realize that most people are like ourselves and not so different and want the same things, like a home, steady work, a Medicare plan and schools for our children (if you travel you will see this). We realize that most people are of good hearts and goodwill.

    This reminds me of a parable from the good book where a Levite and Priest come upon a man who fell among thieves and they both individually passed by and didn’t stop to help him.

    Finally a man of another race came by, he got down from his beast, decided not to be compassionate by proxy and got down with the injured man, administered first aid, and helped the man in need.

    Jesus ended up saying, this was the good man, this was the great man, because he had the capacity to project the “I” into the “thou,” and to be concerned about his fellow man.

    You see, the Levite and the Priest were afraid, they asked themselves, “If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?”

    But then the Good Samaritan came by. And he reversed the question: “If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?”

    That’s the question before us. The question is not, “If I stop to help our fellow man (immigrant) in need, what will happen to me?” The question is, “If I do not stop to help our fellow man, what will happen to him or her?” That’s the question.

    This current climate of blaming others for our woes is not new. We have had this before and we have conquered it.

    Remember “Evil flourishes when good men (and women) do nothing”. Raise your voices with those of us who believe we are equal and we can win this battle again.

  2. Paul

    Isn't it ironic that you cite Christian belief to lecture us about a problem that, in fact, derives of UK failing to maintain Christian influence ?

    We developed a system of law over many centuries, through Civil War and Restitution of Monarchy.

    Then after World War 2 the system was set aside, with no consent of the people, and replaced with an unlawful multicultural experiment.

    Whereas we had a system by which we were all guaranteed enjoyment of the Queens Peace (enforceable by us all) we no longer have equal rights.

    Under the guise of "Human Rights" certain minorities have gained privileges.

    After the Lozells riots Tony Blair was advised that the multicultural experiment had failed. yet the same failed social theorists want to now try "Interculturalism".

    The weakness in your position is that you want to cite what your parents and grandparents told you (Well yes they were right about the Parable of the Talents) at the same time as argue that you have matured beyond their prejudices.

    And to argue your cause you employ the same device as Hitler. First the badge (The Yellow Star for the Jew) then the diatribe. Nowadays the opening badge is "Racist".

    To be concerned about the dangers brought by the multicultural experiment does not make a person a racist at all.

    I can take you to a warehouse distribution company. On a Saturday morning for overtime on one floor are Asian women. Nigerians and English cannot work on that same floor because they gag at the stench. The employers know it. On another floor are Poles. For some reason they wear leather jackets of indeterminate age whatever the weather. Again English and Nigerians and Afro Caribbeans cannot work on that floor because the stench gags them.

    We took out some Sri Lankans for dinner (they are Muslim so we had to check the old Halal out etc). When asked by the party would they stay settled in England they replied "No chance too many effing Pakis"

    The fact is that you can try to programme the people's brains but you cannot re-educate their nostrils and senses mate.

    People will judge by what they see. And what they see here is that Asian women are bone idle, work in pairs to do less than one white woman's workload and their personal hygiene is non-existent.

    English people happily working with Nigerians and Afro Caribbeans cannot work near Asians and Poles.

    So why not go back to what Grannie told you Paul and make your platform Cleanliness is next to Godliness and actually start the process of growing up ?

  3. If you check the Christian Ministry historyb for Leeds Paul for about 1800 you will be surprised to learn that one third of the Industrial workforce was from Asia and Africa. ooooh does that mean under the old Common Law system (which is still law but the multiculturalists kind of want us to forget that) we have absorbed immigration without hassle then ? And with no sociologists or social theorists or human rights groups ? Yep

  4. Your blog list is not 'comprehensive' and you know it. When your item starts with a whopping great lie, why should anyone bother to read the rest of it?

  5. Paul you lost me there

    Rick I will remove racist comments when I get home

    Becky not sure what you mean as far as I can tell its comprehensive that is thanet s honest non abusive blogs

  6. Thought you might be interested to know that Richard died this morning. xx

  7. well becky-seems you read it-irony springs to mind.....
