 Just as Western thinking about savage Islamolunacy reached a new low ebb – e.g. with UK PM Daft Dave warning Pak gals that IS/ISIS/ISIL/Daesh/Beheadistan could be bad for their health, musing he might toughen England’s Labour-beloved ‘hate speech’ laws, then adjourning to the beaches to mull over a possible RAF bombing sortie into Syria in October – the jiheadists obliged by suicide-bombing just inside Turkey, killing 32 young Kurds and injuring 120 at a cultural centre in Suruc (Daily Mail, 20 vii).

Solunni Turkey, equipped with the largest army in Europe (to be ready to fight its Nato ally, Greece), had apparently been biding its time in the Solunni vs Shitite civil war (which a thousand years of Muesli theological scholarship had failed to settle), waiting for ISIL to make a mess of the Syrians and Kurds before setting up its own Caliphate in the Godforsaken area.

But the Suruc slaughter in Turkey itself – followed by Kurds killing two police in revenge for Turkish tardiness – got Turkey off its bottom sooner than planned (i.e. before Western agreement to a Turkish Caliphate had been achieved). Turkey at last gave permission to the USA to bomb the ISIL jeheadingists from the Incirlik airbase in southern Turkey; it began a little bombing itself – including of the more rebellious and statehood-aspiring Kurds; and it embarked on the construction of a wall on its 700-mile Syrian border that would help stop mad young Mueslis from Europe flocking via Turkey to join ISIL in Syria.

Well-merited and explosive assault by Turkey on ISIL would give the West time to ponder its long-unanswered questions of what to do about Muesli immigration, dress codes, FGM, forced marriage, marital rape, overbreeding (esp. by first cousins), benefit scrounging, deliberate de-literacy, cruelty to animals and the drugging, raping and pimping of White weenies.


Following up the theme of how Britain’s great and good (and not just young Princess Elizabeth, q.v.) went some way along with German Führerworship of the 1930s, Boris Johnson (despite a tiring week of problems for Boris buses, Boris Island and Boris water cannon) quickly came up with the name of Liberal, welfarist and war-winning PM David Lloyd George.

Apparently, even after Hitler’s re-taking the Rhineland 1936 and making his anti-Semitism plain, DLG had paid a call and declared Schicklgruber “a born leader of men, a magnetic dynamic personality with a single-minded purpose, a resolute will and a dauntless heart” and “the George Washington of Germany.”

Yes, a degree of support for AH was not just from conservative aristocrats who feared communism and from Oxford progressives who feared war: it came even from a top Liberal politician and statesman who would rank with Churchill and Wellington as among the very greatest British PMs.


 The bizarre Western effort to keep Burundi multicultural and democratic met a brick wall as the elite minority Tutsi declined to vote in an illegal presidential election aimed to re-appoint Hutu-favouring Pierre Nkurunziza for a third term  (Guardian, 21 vii). In the run-up to the election, some 100 had been killed and 150K displaced; and the future was thought to hold civil war in which the Tutsis would be assisted by many of their fellow ethnics who had escaped previous Hutu killings and found refuge in the neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo. Already, 50% of food consumed in Burundi (pop. 10M) was donated by the West.


Writing from Beverly Hills, columnist and mother Celia Walden told Sunday Telegraph readers how peecee and kindred sensitivities began early: among three-year-olds, or at least their mothers (4 vii, Magazine). Quite apart from tales and jokes for tinies having to avoid race, IQ and eugenics, entertaining stories had to avoid kiddie-snatching (‘Rumpelstiltskin’), dwarves (‘Snow White,’ ‘Rumpelstiltskin’) and the topics of pregnancy, childbirth, poisoning and death in which fairy tales tend to abound. Touching on such matters would yield frantic hand gestures from assembled moms.

Fortunately for consensus-seeking mothers, help was at hand in James Finn’s Politically Correct Bedtime Stories – in which modern bowdlerization, for example, Snow White and the Wicked Queen end up opening a spa and women’s conference centre in which to hold “retreats, caucuses and ovariums for the sisters of the world.”


 The folly of multicultural idealism was given an exposure in The Crossing: My Journey to the Shattered Heart of Syria by Samar Yazbek. This brave, pretty and rebellious Syrian-Alawite-Shitite writerette on women’s issues (married at 16 and divorced and a mother by 20), had left Damascus for Paris in 2011 but, despite being threatened with bloody beatings and crucifixion, repeatedly returned to stimulate others to realize her optimistic vision of a country in which “we are all just Syrian, not Sunni, not Shia, not Alawite.”

Only in 2014 did she reconcile herself to a last smuggling into Turkey and to making the best of life in exile (Sunday Times, 28 vi, Culture). (The Alawites, the relatively elite clan who lived chiefly on Syria’s north-western seabord, had long attempted their own multiculturalism, adding a three-in-one godhead, reincarnation and various secret beliefs [possibly including that women did not have souls] to their already Sunnified Shi-ism; but all such ingenious blending would prove vain against the jiheadists of ISIS which Western idealism had unleashed in Iraq.)


How easily could you help run a Nazi death camp? A cheap and pointless prison with only physical violence disallowed? Such a prison where you were paid by a university professor to play your version of a guard with ‘inmates’ who were similarly paid fellow students told to obey? Might you joke in the faces of ‘inmates’, sometimes demand stripping naked for unnecessary de-lousing, or decline requests for medical attention as frivolous?

Forty years after social psychologist Philip Zimbardo ran his infamous Stanford Prison Experiment (q.v.) which stirred anxiety about ‘authoritarianism’ (just as had Stanley Milgram’s pseudo-shock-inflicting students who accepted professorial instructions to punish what they thought were slow learners in a memory experiment), readers of peecee Nature (which had for twenty years found it politick to disdain the hereditarian views of its founder) were given the opportunity to rehearse such anxiety (23 vii, Brendan Maher).

Strange! Would scientists, scholars and students worry more about human greed if paid students agreed to steal from another paid student whose own instructions were to leave his money lying around? Or worry more about lust and female rapism if paid girls agreed to fellate a protesting boy who was paid to offer no physical or angry resistance?

Surely, the only real cause for anxiety would be that ‘social’ psychologists could make an ideological issue out of such farcical ‘experiments.’ What on earth did idealists expect would happen if the elaborately constructed edifice of morality and society were stripped away – as when authority itself was removed in William Golding’s ‘Lord of the Flies.’


 In a helpful article about the restrictiveness of modern ‘British’ Muslim families, esteemed Shitite agony aunt Yasmin Alibhai-Brown {who had once kindly used one of her columns to support me against paedohysteria} offered a seldom-heard explanation of the purpose of the burqa (Sunday Times, 12 vii, Magazine):

"....A few years back [in London], a fully veiled woman recognized me and followed me home. She threw off her burkha. She was covered in bruises, bite marks, cigarette burns. A chemistry graduate from a northern town, she [had been] beaten up by her father and brother for speaking to a man at a bus stop. “You see? We are hidden so nobody sees our wounds. Domestic violence is so common in Muslim families, they don’t even think it is wrong.”


As Britain’s electorally devastated Labour Party let its far-leftists loose to parade unreconstructed support for ‘Old Labour’ leadership candidate Jeremy Corbyn, 94, who had divorced one of his wives because she didn’t favour comprehensive schools (prompting Rev. Blair to say those whose hearts were with him, needed a transplant), advice to go English nationalist and jack the EU came from Telegraph columnist Allister Heath (23 vii) – urging an empowering consumerism that would champion patients, parents, public transport users and plebiscites (against state capitalism) and provide an alternative to Daft Dave’s determination to champion workers (against welfarist shirkers); and even the mangey Corbyn himself declared he was not averse to ending Britain’s subservient subscription to the Fourth Reich.

{Only problem: the British establishment was quite as dedicated to low-IQ immigration, to cheap labour, to state super-stipends for armchair do-gooders and to peecee tyranny as were the bureaucrats of Brussels.}


Children’s differences in exam results as teenagers are 60% due to genetic differences and only 18% due to environment. Heredity was more than three times as important as school and home life differences combined. Such was the result of analyses by researchers under Bob Plomin at King’s College London of GCSEs sat by 12,500 twins (half identical, half fraternal) (Scientific Reports; Guardian, 23 vii; D.Mail, 24 vii).

About a half of the influence of heredity was attributable to the g [general intelligence, cf. IQ] factor; but the other half was unrelated to g and was presumed by researchers to reflect genetic differences in factors like persistence, imagination, curiosity, memory, conscientiousness, creativity etc.

Said Plomin: “We found that academic achievement in English, mathematics, science, humanities, second languages and art were all affected by the same genes. People may think that they’re good at one subject and bad at another, but in reality most people are strikingly consistent.”

Urging teachers to attend to pupils’ individual differences, Plomin said that, while talking about genetics and education was no longer the taboo that it had been twenty years previously, education professionals were slow to adapt teaching methods in the face of new scientific findings.


 Pursuing his relatively race-realistic US Presidential campaign, The Donald (q.v.), arriving at the Texas border with Mexico, continued his warnings about the Hispanic invasion of America which he provided the last chance of arresting (D.Telegraph, 24 vii):

"Mexico doesn’t want to house someone in a prison for thirty years when the US will do it. Mexico’s leaders are much more cunning than our leaders. I think border guards know that."

Inspired a little by Trump’s effort, American Renaissance came up with an apt new and rude term for America’s ‘conservatives’ who had long ago decided to smile on the invasion when not looking the other way (24 vii): they were ‘cuckservatives’ – political cuckolds who hoped that acceptance of indignity would give them the illusion of control.


 The Swedish Democrats, Sweden’s nationalist party, reached 23% in opinion polls, only 1% behind the front-running Socialists – a dramatic advance from the 6.5% supporting it when it was founded in 2010 (AmRen, 23 vii). Supporters planned a ‘gay pride’ march on 29th July that would pass through ‘Afritard’ areas of Stockholm that were 75% Muslim, aiming to provoke yags and feminoids to come out in their true colours as ‘anti-racists’ who basically sought the end of White culture.

An AmRen correspondent explained: “The story is that in every European nation in which the political class launches a program of massive, uncontrolled third-world immigration, eventually a nationalist anti-immigration party is formed, and grows in strength, purely as a backlash.” {Labour please note how to be electable!}


 As it slid towards dementia in its thoughtless, speechless and long-drawn-out post-Election leadership contest, the Labour Party – not content with a third of its MPs revealing they rather fancied the pro-IRA, pro-Mandela, pro-Martin Luther King, anti-Queen 66-yr-old Jeremy Corbyn – added the new concept of “sexist undertones” to the peecee litany of hate crimes.

When its (Blairite) Lord Falconer ventured that no candidate but his own (unheard-of) Andy Burnham could appeal to all sections of the party, he was promptly denounced by candidate Yvette for the “sexist undertones” of trying to demean Yvette and a Liz and limit the contest to one between men – though Lord Falconer had not in fact mentioned anything about candidates’ sex ooops gender.

Yes, rather than grasp the heaven-sent nationalist opportunities provided by the EU making a 5-year mess of Greece, A/As streaming into Europe, and the West’s deposition of despots around the Med killing, maiming and displacing millions, Labour preferred merely to leave a contribution of naughty disallowed ‘undertones’ to the operation of peecee tyranny. You couldn’t make it up!

On what would have been the 80th birthday of the genial, generous and g-loaded Nick Mackintosh (q.v.) -- the most eminent modern psychologist to have shifted his focus from animal conditioning to human intelligence (with the help of mounting evidence for the g factor and its substantial link to mental speed of intake) -- a nice note appeared in Scientific American (9 vii).

The memoir – by an American visitor to the great scholar and professor in Cambridge – bestowed the highest praise on NJM’s IQ and Human Intelligence even if it did not quite reach the dizzy height of a 2011 review titled ‘Ignoring Chrissandra’ of comparing The g Factor to George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.

{“If I were to choose the three most important political works of the twentieth century, I think they would be George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, Kevin MacDonald’s Culture of Critique, and Chris Brand’s The g Factor.  Orwell’s novel is the most readable and MacDonald’s trilogy the most radical, but Brand’s polemic is of the most general importance. ....In Greek myth, the prophetess Cassandra was doomed to be always right and always disbelieved.

In twentieth and twenty-first century Britain, Chris Brand has been a Chrissandra: his prognoses and prophecies have been ignored by the political establishment and he has been cast into what East Germans used to call ‘internal exile.’ Ignoring Cassandra led inevitably to the fall of Troy; ignoring Chrissandra is leading inevitably to the death of the West.”}


 An autobiographical memoir by classical pianist James Rhodes (Instrumental, 2015, Edinburgh:Canongate) revealed he had “suffered appalling sexual abuse at the hands of a gym teacher in his primary school between the ages of six and 10 (Sunday Times, 31 v, Culture) apparently resulting in drug use, drinking, illness, self-mutilation, occasional psychiatric hospitalization and girl problems.

Nevertheless, at 40 the author was enjoying a highly successful career (including a profitable ten-year break as a banker in the City, a happy (second) marriage, celebrity friends and special rapport with younger audiences


Amidst the uncertainties, horrors, lunches and incompetences of the Great Five-year EU/Eurozone Trainwreck, just one certainty shone persistently through: the north-south racial divide of Western Europe between the austerity-accepting, centre-right-governed beer-drinking countries that thought Greece should repay its debts and the French-led sun-kissed fun-lovers who guessed a bit more cash could be squeezed out of Germany to support their countries’ proclivities to fascism, communism, socialism, corruption, wine-bibbing, military failure, civil war, military takeovers, reckless driving and general noisiness.

Just how such differences had come about was presumably connected with White Protestantism’s stress on words, reading, truth and honesty as contrasted with Catholic and Orthodox preferences for pictures, visual style, display and superstition; but IQ had to provide a component of the account – with almost all Nordic countries having respectable intelligence (the exceptions being tiny Lithuania and Éire, 80% Catholic countries of IQ 91 and 92 respectively) whereas ClubMed furnished big duds in Greece (IQ 92*) and Portugal (IQ 95) along with 73% Orthodox (and 25% Muslim) Cyprus (IQ 91).

Just why Milkmaid Merkel should wish her country to serve as paymaster in a German Fourth Reich of incompatibles and bad debtors was a mystery except in so far as France needed to be kept on board to provide the EU with the Bomb, an aircraft carrier, champagne, brie cheese and an aura of revolutionary liveliness – however bloodied by the repeated failures of French idealism.

* ”....[the Greeks’] industrial, scientific and technological achievements can be summarised on a postage stamp.” – Historian Max Hastings, ‘Deceitful Greek bailout is sure to end in tears,’ Daily Mail, 14 vii.


 After years of tolerating, enriching and arming Solunni Arabs in the hope that they would at least refrain from new direct attacks on Israel, America {wisely, and as long urged in this blog} decided to beef up the more Europeanized Shitites in Islam’s civil war by letting Iran develop nuclear power so long as it got no nearer to having a Bomb than was Saudi Arabia to purchasing one from Pakilooniland.

Thus was completed the world’s progress under Yankee superpowerdom from the Bomb being in the hands of only Anglo-Saxon people to its being available to a dozen countries having alarming degrees of communism, corruption, slavery and psychoticism; but a Guardian reader noted the bright side of bringing Shitites into Western graces (15 vii – discussing ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ in Washington’s deal with Tehran):

"I will add, as a supporter of the State of Israel, that, though Netanyahu is a looser, with this deal, Israel is a winner. Contrary to the ravings of Bibi, a strong, stable Iran will mean that the Sunni Arab world will have two "ultimate" foes. And won't know which to fight, or try to fight both. And if Israel has the sense to sit back and watch while Islam has its thirty years war, they will be able to enjoy a long period of security. Cynical, I know, but, I think it may well work."


 As Labour’s leadership contest threw up no-one of interest except an elderly pre-Blairite who was backed by the biggest trade unions (which themselves embarked on annoying Londoners), thinking lefties began to toy with the idea that English Labour should become more English and, in particular, anti-EU.

Distressed by Mutti Merkel bearing down on the underdog borrowers of Greece {though these had probably salted their 4th Reich profits in tax-free Swiss bank accounts and the ever-booming London property market}, top Guardian columnists George Monbiot and Owen Jones showed distinct signs of movement {as advocated for Labour in this blog}, with the latter writing (15 vii):

"As austerity-ravaged Greece was placed under what Yanis Varoufakis terms a “postmodern occupation”, its sovereignty overturned and compelled to implement more of the policies that have achieved nothing but economic ruin, Britain’s left is turning against the European Union, and fast.

    “Everything good about the EU is in retreat; everything bad is on the rampage,” writes George Monbiot, explaining his about-turn.

“All my life I’ve been pro-Europe,” says Caitlin Moran, “but seeing how Germany is treating Greece, I am finding it increasingly distasteful.”

Nick Cohen believes the EU is being portrayed “with some truth, as a cruel, fanatical and stupid institution”. “How can the left support what is being done?” asks Suzanne Moore. “The European ‘Union’. Not in my name.” There are senior Labour figures in Westminster and Holyrood privately moving to an “out” position too.

What a roll call of the great, good, wimpish and welfare-crazed! But it would be a way of stemming the haemorrhage of Labour votes to nationalism that had happened at the General Election.


 Amidst the confusions of British party politics – as ‘Conservatives’ supported peecee tyranny, forced through yag marriage and demanded employers shame themselves if they paid less to female staff, and ‘Labour’ advertised itself as being a ‘One Nation’ party and saw its intellectuals prepare to revert to anti-Europeanism – a question was ‘Which party would ever again back educational selection – cf grammar schools?’ This, together with proper experimentation (as in medicine) was the only way to give Britain a chance in a competitive future; but Britain’s politicos – cowardly and ignorant in equal measure -- were virtually unanimous in abjuring such elitism.

Good, then, that at least Mail columnist Peter Hitchens kept on backing school choice at 11 by parents after informed discussion (15 vii) – the German model derived from Sir Cyril Burt and advocated in The g Factor (1996, Chap.4).


 What was to be done about the burgeoning peoples of India – currently 1.3B and due to be 1.7B by mid-century? No problem, said an article given houseroom by the Times of India (16 vii)....:

"....New Delhi needs to facilitate emigration of 300 million or more to allow itself some breathing space and gain greater global heft. It has to be in a formulation that constitutes a win-win to both giver and receiver. Already, it is accepted that fears of a brain drain were overblown. India has benefited more on account of its emigrating population. Emigration may yet be seen as an act of patriotism that carries the syncretic ethos of India worldwide".


Several mysteries accompanied the Sun’s front-page publication of a 1933 photo of the young Princess Elizabeth and her mother giving Hitler salutes for the camera, apparently at the playful behest of the future Queen’s uncle.

How had the picture (one frame of a 17-second video) come to light? Did the Queen (or anyone else) have any recall of the context and motivation of the incident? Who was the cameraman (most likely the Queen’s beloved father, whom she would have happily practised saluting in the latest modern manner)? But, above all, what precisely was the ‘social history interest’ which the Sun claimed for publishing the picture? – Might it be the wide popularity of Adolf Hitler’s elevation to power in Germany of 1933, not just with the anti-communist right and with infatuated German women but with the many socialists, pacifists and progressives (exemplified in the Oxford Union) who would stay broadly loyal to the Führer until he launched Operation Barbarossa against their idealized USSR in 1941?

The left’s post-1945 success in drawing a veil over its substantial erstwhile support for German National Socialism was certainly of the greatest social-historical interest – enabling the left’s ‘long march through the institutions’ towards cultural Marxism [political correctness] without frightening the horses.

  This was how top functionaries of University College London found themselves described by top jester Rod Liddle as he savaged the treatment that the “halfwits” had meted out to Nobelist Sir Tim Hunt (whose throw-away dismissal of himself as a “chauvinist” had not prevented his actual sudden dismissal by the dean of faculty at the college where he had worked for a lifetime – q.v.) (Sunday Times, 5 vii).

Other troubles for the luni were that it turned out to have a record of inviting mad Mueslis to hold forth on their views that yags were “dirty dogs who should be murdered” and that Jews, Christians and “filthy non-Muslim doctors” needed seeing to – views hardly concordant with the usual UCL lib-left consensus; and that the eminent American academic, Nassim Taleb, cancelled an invited visit – pointing out as he did so that UCL ran a campus in Qatar where some workers were not allowed passports.

Liddle lashed the “hypocrisy, stupidity and callousness” of a college which had – as it trembled before PeeCee – brought about “the deliberate destruction of a human being” and, despite acrimonious discussions among its bureaufarts, been unable to end the matter with dignity (e.g. the early retirement of its impetuous dean).

    Meanwhile, matching the mega-embarrassing incompetence of UCL, Mueslis of Israel’s West Bank spurned the coalition of minorities and whitewashed a mural of the yag ‘rainbow’ flag – leaving a ‘yag pride’ march of 10K to take place only on the Jewish side of the Jerusalem wall that kept the (once equally left-loved) religionists from each other’s throats.


 Despite daily reminders of deep-seated sex differences – with Wimbledon’s women unable to play five sets, with Japan and America dominating international wymmin’s football (unlike the real thing), and with the Downing Street team preparing the UK Chancellor’s widely acclaimed Budget (for ‘workers not shirkers’) having only one womyn among its six members – bureaucademics of UCL continued to provide amusement by refusing to reinstate ‘sexist’ Sir Tim (D.Telegraph, 9 vii).

They thus flew hilariously in the faces of Richard Dawkins, Lewis Wolpert, Boris Johnson, a dozen Nobelists and a score of the college’s own honorary fellows. Ironically, UCL’s venerated ‘spiritual father,’ Jeremy Bentham, while deploring all prejudicial discrimination (though never himself marrying), as a true liberal had also been a champion of free speech; UCL offered no explanation of why only 33% of its senior academic staff were female; and no agreed account was available of what Sir Tim had said and how he had said it.

{In all this it was of course a pity that Sir Tim had given feminoid hysterics encouragement by joking of himself as a “chauvinist monster,” by offering a placatory apology when none was necessary, and by resigning instead of demanding a proper hearing and trial. – He had perhaps wanted to avoid scrutiny of his own ‘love in the lab’ problems of the 1980s (see Daily Mail, 10 vii).

Sir Tim’s defender, Richard Dawkins, also had a reputation for being a ladies’ man in the lab – at one time having slept with all but one of his female staff.}


 As thousands of Muslim Uighurs were killed by Chinese, a hundred of their compatriots made it out to Thailand, apparently headed to Turkey and perhaps the Jiheadistan of ISIS. But Thailand’s military government of Buddhists was unsympathetic to this operation and, not having signed up to UN refugee pieties, promptly returned them to China, which was likewise uninterested in any moves towards a Greater Turkestan (Guardian + correspondents, 10 vii).

{The Thais evidently took the same dim view of the Uighur Muslim as they and Burma’s Buddhist monks and government did of the Rohingya [q.v.] In this they were well in line with the sentiments of Western publics – if not of the West’s spineless ooops saintly politicos and leftists who had put admiration for Jewish culture and achievement behind them and become protectors of Solunni superstition.}


After several years of casting paedophilic aspersions against MPs of the 1980s, including his own predecessor in Rochdale, Labour MP Simon Danczuk, 48, found himself locked out of his home by his wife, accused by her of being a violent and deceitful alcoholic, signed up with a psychiatrist, and having to abandon his paedohunting due to being overstressed by the tales of abuse that his inquiries had brought him.

By contrast, wife Karen, 32 and a Labour councillor, appeared to be in good shape despite her hubbie’s campaign publicizing that she had been repeatedly tortured and raped from age 6 till 12 by a brother and half-brother, was having affairs with a car salesman, her gym instructor and another stud, and loved nothing better than to ‘twitter’ ‘selfies’ of her considerable cleavage.

Needless to say, Councillor Karen was dubbed ‘Queen of the Selfies’ by admirers and was said to be preparing to appear on Celebrity Big Brother, Strictly Come Dancing, Game of Thrones, Married At First Sight etc. Apparently a few years of rampant brotherly abuse were better for the psyche than a dismal obsession with persecuting long-dead paedos


It was presumably the passion for enforced female ‘equality’ of opportunity that resulted in a 54-year-old grandmother being selected as a court guard in charge of such felons as GBH case Humphrey Burke, 22, who put her in a coma as he tried to escape outside London’s Blackfriars Crown Court – a coma from which she never emerged, so Burke found himself on an additional murder charge (D.Telegraph, 11 vii).


Contrary to post-Saddam images of horror – with piles of corpses discovered each morning, Baghdad had become a peaceful city where children skipped and jumped among new greenery and fashionable ladies smoked exotic tobaccos through hubble-bubble pipes. Yes, said the BBC’s World Service (12 vii, 09:05), the famous city had become geographically segregated along Solunni vs Shitite lines, and all the residents had to fear was that Western multicults would attempt to impose peecee brotherly love on tribal sects which had hated each other for a thousand years.


 When theology professor Donald Macleod was stripped of his 20-year weekly column for the West Highland Free Press after he warned against the rise of Islam, he was stoutly defended by the newspaper’s founder, former Labour MP Brian Wilson, by the Moderator [leader] of the Free Church of Scotland, and by two lady journalists who resigned from the paper in disgust (Scotsman, 12 vii) – though Wilson then found his own 40-year column cancelled, moving him to remark ironically on “the joys of employee ownership” (such takeovers having been allowed in socialism-crazed Scotland since 2009).

Tuesday, July 07, 2015


The exposure on Black Friday (q.v.) of the breadth and depth of the horrors of the West and its gormless peecee ‘leadership’ elicited unwonted realism from an army chief-of-staff (albeit safely retired), one Lord Dannatt, who noted that top Mueslis had been distinctly backward in coming forward to condemn jihadic violence (Sunday Mail, 28 vi); and from PM Daft Dave, who at last admitted that the West was up against not just “terror” (the safe option preferred for years by pundits and politicos) but “Islamic terror.”

Lord Dannatt’s frankness earned him an invitation from superstar interviewer Andrew Neil to a four-man critique on ‘Sunday Politics’ of peecee pussyfooting around Islam’s tendencies to aggression, child prostitution, homophobia, anti-Semitism and misogyny – a shrewd move by the Beeb as it came under fire from the UK’s new Conservative government for its well-known bias towards the left and the left’s favoured minorities.

Boris ‘Bojo’ Johnson (now MP and in hot pursuit of the Tory leadership) warmed to the theme and spelled out in his Telegraph column that some term needed to be found for rabid Mueslis that acknowledged that they had something to do with Islam (29 vi).

    DD followed up by proposing legislation to criminalize ‘disruptive’ ‘extremist’ intolerance of faiths, tolerance of intolerance, yagophobia and public proposals for “the subjugation of women” – though this substitute for mosque closures would probably get used more against Christians than against MISlims (attacks on whom would quickly be condemned as ‘racist’ or Islamophobic by MSM, politicos, lawbugs and kindred Islamapologists)....

DD’s new mouthings did indicate a real smidgeon of a shift towards recognizing there was some kind of problem with Islam, agreed the Guardian (30 vi); but his only practical proposal to bear down especially on Mueslis was a restriction of state funding of translation services -- for Pakistanis usually needed their cases translated into Urdu so they could understand the state-funded work of lawyers, social workers, teachers and medics on their behalf.

    DD received no support against Islam from Britain’s luniversities – twelve of which (mainly in London) hypocritically claimed they would continue to support the ‘free speech’ of murderous Mueslis, even though that high principle had not been applied to the post-prandial jocosity of Nobelist Sir Tim Hunt.

But Tunisia showed resolution that would appal Britoid lib-lefties by announcing it would close within a week those eighty mosques in the country that were not already under government supervision to ensure they did not “spread venom” (Financial Times, 28 vi); and the Governor/Mayor of Lombardy (Italy’s economic engine room, which had already installed security cameras in mosques and banned any new construction of non-Catholic places of worship) promised similar closures.

From 2010, Angola (where 1% of the 19M population was Muslim) was widely reported to be closing and burning mosques and madrasas and halting the construction of new ones (Wikipedia, 2 vii 2015). (Angola granted ‘freedom of religion’ only to cohesive groups of at least 100K having agreed leadership – i.e. not divided into sects.)

Egypt – surrounded by IS – was embarked on closing 27K of its smaller mosques (to suppress extremism, or at least force its preachers into the open) (Shoebat.com, iii 2015); and it responded to the Tunisian massacre and IS killing of its top prosecutor by declaring war on IS and sending more troops to secure its province of Sinai, killing 123 IS vermin in two days.

Even harassed Syria managed to kill dozens of rapacious IS jiheadists (in besieged Aleppo), putting the West to shame – though the French National Front at least wanted mosque closures; and Germany had closed at least one mosque (in Bremen) for exhorting youth to join IS (Jihadwatch, xii 2014).

    The Quran contained 100 passages inciting violence, mutilation, killing (esp. beheading) and the insulting of Christians. The Quran was taught to Muslim children as the exact word of God, to be learned by rote from unlettered and self-appointed "Imams." Any person not committed to seeking political Islam (government by Sharia law) for his country was not considered a true Muslim. (Independent correspondents, 2 vii).


 The fat Black female teacher of journalism, Connie St Louis, who had denounced Sir Tim Hunt for sexism and got him sacked (q.v.), turned out to have made faster and looser with the facts than had the great Nobelist. In her CV (provided at London’s City University), the priggish, joke-abjuring Connie claimed to have written articles for “numerous outlets” including the Sunday Times and the Daily Mail and that she “presents and produces a range of programmes for BBC Radio 4”; but the ST could find no such articles in a database search covering the past two decades, and no broadcast programmes in her name since 2007.


 The best-selling children’s authoress, Glasgow-based Julia Donaldson (who wrote The Gruffalo) said adults had become “totally neurotic” about paedophiles to the detriment of offspring’s freedom and ability to explore (Sunday Times, 28 vi).


 The death of education guru Sir Chris Woodhead at 68 of motoneurone disease was nicely lamented by the papers – for he had championed schools wanting to be free of socialist control from local authorities and spoken in favour of bringing back the grammar schools (Sunday Times, 28 vi).

{However, he never seemed to have read TgF – which concluded with more practical suggestions for introducing streaming and differentiation by intelligence using teacher-guided parental choice [the system set up for Germany by Britain in the days of Sir Cyril Burt and continued to the present].}


 As Britons laboured to define their country’s nature and values, and thus some reason why – after 300 years of running itself (1688-1988) – Britain should be providing refuge and welfare for the world and having its people blown up and gunned down by ISlamofanatics (notably the 52 on 7 vii 2005 and 30 on 26 vi 2015), visual aids from London’s Hyde Park memorial to 7/7 handily summed up the modern British story (Daily Mail, 30 vi).

Yes, the Romanian gypsies who nightly camped (including toileting) by the 52 pillars said it all as Britain added Tunisia to its list of concerns with the Mueslis of the Med: a country which had energized, liberated and saved the world had lost its grip – its finest institutions (Monarchy, Parliament, Armed Forces, Civil Service, Police) having surrendered their powers so as to make room for PeeCee and kindred feckless idealism. Yes, once-Great Britain was Going Bust. But it had found its voice – a spineless whimper. {PM DD was due to pay his respects at the memorial 7 vii 2015.}


A fine tirade against University College London was provided by top Mail columnist Bel Mooney (2 vii), who pointed to the wretched luni having given houseroom for ranting by murderous Mueslis to sex-segregated audiences. Bel’s former husband, star broadcaster Jonathan Dimbleby, had resigned his Fellowship at the peecee playground ooops college over its forcing the resignation of ‘sexist’ Sir Tim (4 vii).

    Sir Tim’s hysteria-inducing idea that female participation in traditionally male pursuits might not be an unmixed blessing was given further support as England’s Ladies’ Footie Team crashed out of a World Cup competition with an own goal scored in extra time.

And, from the great horse racing Oz state of Victoria, it was reported that a female jockey had fallen while doing track work at Caulfield Race Course and that she died before arriving at a hospital. She was the second jockess to die in a racing accident in a month; and the fourth in 2015; and the ninth in 2014-5. How many male jockeys died in that time? None.


 Britain’s laxity in not banning the burqa was exemplarily exposed as crooks in an east London gang were convicted of a string of heists over a six-year period which had netted millions of pounds in designer watches, shoes and handbags from such high-end retailers as Prada, Selfridges and Jimmy Choo. The gang’s standard equipment for its smash-and-grab raids had included burqas along with motor bikes, sledgehammers and axes (Guardian, 4 vii; photos by Metropolitan Police).

Though did model and beautician Hollie Dowding (for it is she) really need to cover up?... Especially as Hollie readily confessed to providing ‘handling’ services (D.Telegraph, 4 vii)....


 In the topsy-turvy world of modern Britain – where the Queen had no yacht, Prince William needed to fly second-class, most medicine was lavished on those about to die, girls were encouraged to take up rugby and boxing, Oxbridge applicants to the Civil Service were discriminated against, and Scottish universities were told by their Holyrood masters to admit preferentially applicants having poor levels of educational attainment, teachers in England were found (in research by London Metropolitan University) to stigmatize their charges openly (attaching stickers to submitted work) as ‘disadvantaged’ so as to elicit a ‘pupil premium’ [higher grades] from examiners (D.Telegraph, 4 vii).
