 The round of apologies and resignations from Terrible Annie Teriba (q.v.), the Nigerian-parented Oxford LGBT student who had forced herself on two or three ‘victims’ in the course of NUS conferences, was reported not to have worked (Sunday Mail, 18 x).

Instead, the apparent victims accused the lustful and lively Annie of not going far enough in her confession, which they had only agreed could avoid the word ‘rape’ so as not to alert police. The apparent victims said on a blog: “The survivor [of Annie’s latest sally] would like it to be known that Annie Teriba committed two counts of rape in the most recent incident her statement refers to. Let’s be clear: Annie Teriba is a rapist.”

The students claimed they had confronted Ms Teriba and urged her to make her apology, as well as stepping down from her student posts. And they claimed she had been ‘narcissistic, obstructive and harmful’ through the process of drafting a statement about her actions.

{So PC Plod was after all to get his chance to explore the arcane pieties of the LGBT world, to find out what exactly was involved in ‘lesbian rape,’ and to ascertain the justification for giving LGBT activists a pass on rape charges that would never have been given to men....

That Annie was a prominent leftist and ‘anti-racist’ – especially campaigning to have all statues of colonialist Cecil Rhodes removed from Oxford University – would make such an undertaking even more fun.}


As Edinburgh-born evidence-oriented Princeton professor Angus Deaton was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work in microeconomics, it turned out he held the ‘right-wing’ view that giving financial assistance from overseas to poor countries was useless beyond a certain low level – and indeed increased corruption and undermined democracy. The rapid economic development of China and India, he observed, had occurred without the copious aid showered on Africa.

{Of course, countries already aided over-sufficiently by the West (out of White guilt and wanting minerals) would have tended to be Black and to have a low IQ; and it was not clear whether such basic factors had been considered – rather confirming the 25-year-old judgment of Nature that economics was not a science, a judgment recently rehearsed approvingly in the Guardian (11 x, Joris Luyendijk, ‘Don’t let the Nobel prize fool you. Economics is not a science’; 14 x, Julia Bird et al., ‘Economics may be dismal, but is it a science?’).}


That Britain’s chief vehicle of socialism had, under its new leader ‘Jezzwecan’ Corbyn, committed itself not only to welfarism, pacifism, republicanism, nationalization, the comprehensive schools, Hamas and the IRA but also to being run by the intellectually mediocre was outlined in the Spectator (24 x, Harry Mount [Bullingdon Club]). Yes, the party of Harold Wilson (1st from Jesus), Denis Healey (1st from Balliol) and the Miliband brothers (1st and 2nd from Corpus Christi [William McDougall’s Oxford college]) had dumbed down big time:

….Under Corbyn, the Labour party — once the clever party — has had a brain transplant. It’s out with the Oxbridge and Harvard graduates with first-class degrees; in with the red-brick university graduates.

    Or, in Corbyn’s case, a non-graduate. Corbyn got two Es at A-level at Adams’ Grammar School in Newport, Shropshire. He did a year of trade union studies at the North London Polytechnic before dropping out. Corbyn is the first Labour leader not to go to university since James Callaghan — and Callaghan only didn’t go because his family, unlike the prosperous Corbyns, couldn’t afford it.

    Corbyn, perhaps because of his low-grade education, has largely replaced the Oxbridge elite — who ran the Labour party under Ed Miliband — with red-brick alumni. John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, left school at 17 and was later a mature student at Brunel and Birkbeck universities. Tom Watson, the deputy leader, was at Hull University, as were Rosie Winterton, the shadow chief whip, and Jon Trickett, shadow minister for the cabinet office.

Any who doubted the involvement of intelligence/IQ in all this were advised by Speccie correspondent ‘RM’:

"....don't think that all or even most Oxbridge graduates are from a "bubble". Most of them are pretty normal people, and the only thing they have in common is that they are very intelligent, at least in their field. I'd rather have intelligent leaders than stupid ones, and Corbyn with his two E grades and failed degree is rather too far below the "stupid" line for me to be comfortable with him as PM."


That there were still some robust and realistic politicos in the E.U. emerged from Czechland (Breitbart, 18 x):

Outspoken left-wing Czech President Milos Zeman, 72, was asked if he thought new migrants from the Middle East would respect Czech laws. “Of course not,” he replied.

    “Unfaithful women will be stoned and thieves will have their hands cut off, and we’ll be deprived of women’s beauty, because they’ll be covered from head to toe. “This would obviously be an advantage for some women, but they’re few and far between.”

Correspondents agreed with the President – not least with his suggestion that the native White girls of the ‘Visegrad’ countries are a pretty hot lot. (The Czech Republic is part of the Eastern, so-called Visegrad group of countries – along with Hungary, Poland and Slovakia – who strongly resisted the introduction of the EU’s forced migration quotas in September.)

In nearby Romania, an education ministry official – apparently wanting to make the best of his country’s female assets – mocked Islam by telling a conference that schools should teach girls to walk provocatively, with “chest out, bottom out – let the boys faint!”

It's worth adding the requiem for Europe by that other outspeaker, Victor Orbán, the President of Hungary, who accused Germany’s Mutti Merkel of “moral imperialism” as she sought to bring at least 3M Mueslis into the EU (Guardian, 24 x) :

"For us today, what is at stake is Europe, the lifestyle of European citizens, European values, the survival or disappearance of European nations, and more precisely formulated, their transformation beyond recognition. Today, the question is not merely in what kind of a Europe we would like to live, but whether what we understand as Europe will exist at all."

Sadly, such clarity of vision was not in evidence at Gothenburg, Sweden, where a masked sword-wielding ‘Star Wars’ killer at a Muesli-immigrant school had brought himself to believe he was following the precepts of Hitler – whose better-known ‘final solution to the Jewish problem’ had been lauded, if not originally inspired in 1941 by the Nazi-loving Muesli mufti of Palestinian Jerusalem.

Still, ‘westward look – the land is bright.’ America’s Pat Buchanan (20 x) on that other unashamed admirer of the female form, ‘The Donald’:

"After months of speeches and TV appearances, he is a far more disciplined campaigner and communicator. In a year when a huge slice of the nation is disgusted with political correctness, wants to dethrone the establishment, wipe the slate clean and begin anew with someone fresh, Trump is in the pole position.

Yes, perhaps a Scottish Presbyterean would rid the West of its latter-day religion of PeeCee and restore a version of communal Christianity before rampaging Islam could establish itself....

Certainly, The Donald had begun to muse openly about closing a few mosques and preventing the return of ‘Americans’ who went to the Levant to fight jiheadically for ISIC.


Sympathy for Donald Trump’s negativity about America’s millions of Hispanic immigrants came from Marissa Abrajano, an award-winning political scientist who had written extensively about Latino politics throughout her career. Her latest book with co-author Zoltan Hajnal, White Backlash: Immigration, Race, and American Politics, provided an analysis of the impact that the growing Latino population was having on White political attitudes. The authors looked at the stark reality of how voters were hardening their positions on policies based on their views of Latino immigrants, attitudes that the authors said did not carry over to Asian-American immigrants.

    Meanwhile, Hispanic immigration continued to surge – e.g to 5K children in September, double the rate for September 2014. Migrants were issued by border guards  with a ‘permit to appear’ which allowed them to stay in the USA while awaiting a court hearing; but in practice 85% never ‘appeared’ and many posted photos of their permisos on the net to show relatives in Mexico how easy it would be for them too to set up in the land of the free (Washington Times, 21 x).


 A blood test allowing couples to test for thousands of genetic flaws which they could pass on to a baby started being sold in Britain (AmRen, 25 x). Hundreds of prospective parents had already bought the test which told them if a combination of their genes put them at risk of having a child with an incurable disease. The compatibility test, which costs £1,800, checks for 4,500 mutations and can flag up more than 600 hereditary diseases, including some that kill within the first years of life. Results come back within 30 days.

If couples are told they are at risk of having an ill child they can decide whether to adopt, have IVF treatment or go ahead and get pregnant naturally. The Spanish firm iGenomix, which developed the test, said  pre-pregnancy genetic screening could soon become as commonplace as ultrasound scans and cut the number of children born with diseases like muscular dystrophy from one in 25 to one in 100,000. Some 8% of couples were thought to be incompatible. Screening for autism, deafness, Alzheimers, diabetes and low IQ was not yet available, but one couple in 625 could be advised they were at risk of having a child with cystic fibrosis

  As a prelude to the state visit to Yukay of Chinese dictator-president Xi PingPong, a copy of Magna Carta (the one held from 1215 by Hereford Cathedral) was put on exhibition at the British Embassy in Peking so Communists could learn of the historic liberties of the land to which they supplied so much slave labour (soon to build nuclear power stations). – A fine and necessary gesture since Xi DingaLing was widely thought to have cracked down on many freedoms since taking office in 2012; but there was sorry irony in that the educational display coincided with no less than three of Britain’s official student unions (Warwick, Manhester and Oxford) deciding to ‘protect’ their members from free speech (Spectator [Coffee House], 13 x).


 It is doubtless a shame when an Oxford student feels obliged to give up a host of leftist offices and editorships in an orgy of guilt about having enjoyed having less-than-correctly-consensual drunken sex in the course of a weekend conference of the National Union of Students. (Police said they had not been informed, so presumably the ‘victim’ was only threatening exposure.)

But it becomes something of a laugh when the dutiful resigner is a Black lesbian politics student at Sodom ooops Wadham College, Annie Teriba, whose feminism had especially included condemnation of the ‘rape culture’ in which she took her chosen university to abound (Daily Mail, 14 x).


In a small but significant reverse for two generations of educational egalitarianism, one of Britain’s few (164) surviving grammar schools, in Kent, managed to open a ‘satellite’ school as an annexe seven miles away which would select its 450 pupils by ability (Guardian, 16 x).

Children and teachers would be ferried between the two schools on a half-day each week to maintain the illusion that the satellite was not a new selective school – creation of which was held to be forbidden by  regulations from the 1980s and 1998 which Britain’s ‘Conservatives’ had not had the courage to abolish.

Another half-a-dozen councils in rural areas of southern England were petitioning to set up similar satellites. {For the merits of streamed education, and for the empirical success of the selective school systems maintained in Northern Ireland and Germany, see TgF, Chapter 4.)

 Coming into line with the spirit of the times, British immigrasceptics found themselves with two female leaders. At the Conservative Party’s annual conference, leggy Home Secretary Mrs Theresa May said she believed studies showing no net benefit from immigration – and was promptly compared to Mrs Thatcher and Enoch Powell by the Guardian, the Independent and the BBC.

And Channel 3 brought to the TV screen busty Jayda Fransen who, as deputy leader of Britain First, deplored third-world immigration, especially by Mueslis, and proposed to appear as a page-3 girl in the Daily Star to advance her cause.

That both were practising Christians and that such words as Black, White, Asian, intelligence, race and heredity never seemed to pass the lips of either woman was not here or there. They were dubbed ‘unsavoury,’ ‘nasty’ and ‘racist’ merely for wanting to control immigration and to help immigrants fit in (e.g. by encouraging them to speak English – thought important to integration by 95% of Brits, according to a new poll).


 At the annual conference of ‘Conservatives’ in Manchester there was little discussion of, and no plans for ensuring extension of choice (especially in education), freedom of speech (especially about human group differences), or halting the ‘Syrian’ invasion of Europe (probably by separating Shitites from Solunnis). Instead, there was peecee social-democrat talk of combatting homophobia, extremism and inequality; but an eagle-eyed London Schooler spotted and told Times readers that at least one of these ‘problems’ did not exist:

"Sir, In his closing speech at the Conservative Party conference, David Cameron asserted that there is less social mobility in Britain than in any other economically developed country. Contrary to this assertion, social scientists have shown that Britain has about the average in this regard and has more social mobility Germany, France the Netherlands and Italy, although less than Sweden, the USA, Japan and Australia.

    Furthermore, there has been considerable social mobility in Britain during the last half century. The majority of people have moved up or down from the social class into which they were born. By and large, the cream has risen has risen to the top and the dross has sunk to the bottom.

    The Prime Minister has a number of problems to confront in the next few years but insufficient social mobility is not among them"

Professor Richard Lynn, Professor emeritus of Psychology, University of Ulster


Germany’s police union and women’s rights groups accused the authorities of playing down reports of harassment, sexual assault and even rape at ‘refugee’ shelters because they feared a backlash against asylum seekers (Reuters, 6 x).

Police union chief Rainer Wendt said he believed that authorities in Germany’s federal states, which were responsible for housing A/A asylum seekers, were playing down the problem of assaults on women in the shelters. “It is understandable that there is the desire to calm things down politically,” Wendt told Reuters.

But he, along with women’s groups, believed that ignoring the problem would be counterproductive. “There is a lot of glossing over going on. But this doesn’t represent reality,” he said. Wendt said that a high number of cases went unreported as women rarely dared to file complaints with police or public prosecutors.


After years of accepting the Islamification of France – in the fond social-environmentalist belief that millions of Blacks from Algeria would eventually settle in to being good republicans – French intellectuals showed signs of restiveness. As he published a new book, high-profile French essayist and philosopher Alain Finkielkraut – a Polish Jew who was once classed as being on the political left – re-iterated the immigration problem in France and derided anyone calling him a right-wing racist or putting him on what he derided as a “blacklist of neo-fascists” (Guardian, 10 x).

He told France Inter radio it was “dreadful and catastrophic” that as soon as intellectuals dared to “look at reality” they were accused of being far-right. He said a witch-hunt* was being conducted by the anti-racism lobby.

    Michel Onfray, the left-winger often hailed as France’s favourite contemporary philosopher, was accused of lurching to the right when he questioned the photo of the Syrian boy, Alan Kurdi, who was found drowned after his parents tried to reach Europe. He said “old school” French people might feel marginalised and betrayed by the arrival of migrants. Libération accused Onfray of abandoning the ideals of the left and playing “Le Pen’s game”. He hit back, accusing the newspaper of “hatred”.

    Behind such cases loomed the figure of Éric Zemmour, a TV intellectual and French newspaper columnist, who topped the non-fiction bestseller list with Le Suicide Français, in which he argued that millions of Muslims might be colonising and transforming France and should be repatriated. Zemmour had been cleared in September of inciting racial hatred after saying on radio that “bands” of foreigners were “stealing, assaulting and stripping” the country.

*Complaints of witch-hunting were also loud in England, where Mrs Thatcher’s former cabinet member, elevated as Lord Leon Brittan, had gone to his grave in 2015 hounded as a paedophile and paedosadist by Labour’s deputy leader (a paedohysterical and Tory-loathing Corbynista) and unaware that police had found not the slightest evidence against him in four years of searching – since the original accuser, a social worker and Labour councillor, confessed he had named Lord Brittan as a joke.


Beleaguered biologist Sir Tim Hunt (q.v.), who had been forced into resignation (of his honorary fellowship at University College London) by a Black female journalist who had pounced on his self-mocking postprandial pleasantries about having women in labs, was given significant support from the mainly cowardly ranks of British academia.

Top neuroscience professor Sir Colin Blakemore himself resigned from the Association of British Science Writers when that body declined even to investigate whether the fat moustachioed American journaliste, Connie St Louis, had been fair in her reporting of the tone and content of Sir Tim’s speech – invited by well-lunched lady scientists at a conference in Japan (Observer, 11 x).

Further support for Nobelist Sir Tim came from two eminent women – an experimental physics professor at Cambridge University and the British ambassadress to Chile.

As Daft Dave visited Jamaica, his donation of a prison to take Black cons from Britain, and of a few make-work projects to be run by UK companies, managed to placate the politicos and ‘academics’ who whined for ‘reparations for slavery.’ Not that ordinary Jamaicans cared. The Guardian explained (2 x):

"It’s a cheap shot to blame Jamaica’s economic malaise entirely on the evil white bogeyman when successive post-independence administrations have overseen an economy with annual growth of less than 1% for the past four decades and a currency in freefall. Social dysfunction is rife, with murders ballooning 20% so far this year and youth unemployment nearing 40%.Jamaica – and the wider anglophone Caribbean – must come to terms with the inconvenient truth that, though the British slave masters were barbarous, when polled a couple of years ago the majority of Jamaicans said the country would have been better off if it had remained a UK colony. That indictment lies at the feet of Jamaica’s black governing class."

And a correspondent added:

"One small point, on the reparations argument... English (and I suspect Jamaican law) demand that, for damages to be paid, individuals have to demonstrate that they've lost materially from someone else's act, and that damages would be broadly commensurate with that loss.

On the IMF's figures, the 2014 nominal GDP-per-head for Jamaica is about $4,900.

If we look at the countries from which the slaves were mainly taken, the numbers are very different: for Ghana, it's $1,470, and for Nigeria (even with their oil revenues) it is about $2,900.

If you want to take a less purely monetary view, the UN's "human development indices" (which measure factors like education, life expectancy, levels of health care and so on) ranks Jamaica at 92nd in the world, Nigeria at 152nd and Ghana at 138th. Other areas from which slaves were taken rate even lower -- Congo at 182nd, for example. Other Caribbean states rate even better than Jamaica -- Barbados at 59th, St Kitts at 74th and Trinidad at 64th (all formally in the "high human development" category)

There'd probably not be much argument that the first generation of slaves suffered -- but it's much harder to argue that their descendants have been disadvantaged by being taken to the Caribbean."

Another chipped in with:

The UK used to run most of the Carribbean.

Most colonies chose to become independent.

The Cayman Islands, Turks and Caicos Islands, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Montserrat and Bermuda chose to remain British.

Any comparison of the six that remained British with the rest that did not shows that economic growth, crime rates, education levels are all better in the British islands than the independent islands and in the case of the Caymans, BVI, Bermuda and T&C, the standard of living and incomes are now as high or higher than the UK, and many times higher than Jamaica.

The UK did a lot of bad things in the past. There is a case for saying we did a bad thing more recently as well when we turned our back on the Caribbean and joined the EU.

But we can’t be blamed for the state of Jamaica today, when other islands nearby have done much better.

Independence means self rule which means you have to take the blame for 50 years of slow development."


 That Blacks too can sometimes be sensible about racial differences was attested by a Nigerian negress born in America, Sade Adebayo, 25, who recounted her transition (at the University of Georgia) from ‘radicalism’ to realism for American Renaissance (1 x). An extract:

"....From the moment I [first] set foot in Nigeria, it was easy to see why my parents had left. My mother and I had to pay bribes to pass safely through the airport. Beggars walked around outside the airport asking travelers for money. It was not uncommon to see people squatting on the side of the road defecating. The gash on my uncle’s head corroborated his story about being robbed and pistol whipped. A billboard in Lagos read in pigeon English, “AIDS. No dey show da face.” (Translation: “You can’t tell whether a person has AIDS by looking at them.”)

    I was born in 1990 in the United States, about a year after my parents arrived. They brought with them a couple of suitcases, my older brother, and big dreams for the future. In less than 25 years, they have managed to establish a medical practice and build a home for their six-person family. Their hard work knows no limits, but their tolerance and understanding do. They cannot comprehend how their first-generation American daughter became a race realist."

{Apparently, even intelligent Blacks like Sade’s parents find it hard to get real. This is not so much because they righteously reject evidence or even lethargically decline to look at it, but because of basic universal paranoia among Blacks that Whites are out to get them -- figures routinely show much higher racial prejudice among Blacks than among Whites.}


As the 90-yr-old author of The Camp of the Saints (pictured) was interviewed by a French magazine, Le Point, it turned out that he placed such faith as he had for the future of the West not in republicanism, religion or razor wire, but rather in royalty.

Support for Jean Raspail’s 1973 apocalyptic vision of the West becoming a dystopia of wretched unassimilated third-world immigrants came from American Thinker, 3 x – which reckoned that plenty of France’s Muslim banlieues were already run by Sharia law.


 Determined to amuse by displaying its peecee posterior, the students' union of Warwick University banned distinguished journalist and rights campaigner Maryam Namazie from giving a talk on campus organised by the Warwick Atheists, Secularists and Humanists’ Society because of a fear that she might "incite hatred" of the university's Muslim students.

Tehran-born MN, 49, was quoted by the Coventry Telegraph as saying: "It angers me that we’re all put in a little box and that anyone who criticises Islam is labelled racist. It’s not racist, it’s a fundamental right. ... The Islamic movement is a movement that slaughters people in the Middle East and Africa. It’s important for us to speak about it and criticise it."

Though she standardly likened Islamism to “fascism, Nazism and Stalinism,” she called herself a feminist and worker-communist and took pains to dissociate herself from far-right critics of Islam.

During the Danish cartoon riots, she had signed Manifesto: "Together Facing the New Totalitarianism" together with Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Shahla Chafiq, Caroline Fourest, Bernard-Henri Lévy, Irshad Manji, Mehdi Mozaffari, Taslima Nasreen, Salman Rushdie, Antoine Sfeir, Philippe Val, and Ibn Warraq.

Yet, despite all this (and the warning of Jonathan Dimbleby [q.v.]), Warwick’s students could not pass up the opportunity to claim a part for themselves in the peeceeification of the Soviet UK State (SUKS) of Britain.

    MN often used nudity to poke fun at modern Mohammedanism’s restrictions on women, as below


As Hungary’s Prime Minister continued to divert A/A pumigrants from his country, and to wonder publicly why Greece had not used its 100K-strong army to repel Europe’s boarders, he found his stance supported by 82% of Hungarians, by 70% of the daily hundreds of British callers to his London embassy and by star Telegraph columnist Janet Daley who (27 ix) slammed Germany’s Mutti Merkel and the EUSSR’s Brussels establishment for vacillation and bullying which could only remind Europeans of the ‘Nazizeit’ and make a UK LEAVE vote more likely in 2016.


Rallies to protest against ‘Syrian refugees’ attracted tens of thousands in cities all over Poland in response to Brussels bureaucrats and Germany’s race-traitorous Mutti Merkel planning to inflict a share of the invaders on Poles (Russia Today, 28 ix). Przemyslaw Wipler and Janusz Korwin-Mikke, members of the liberal Polish political party Coalition of Polish Republic’s Renewal Freedom and Hope (KORWiN), were also among the protesters. They started off with their own smaller group of protesters that soon merged with the much larger All Polish Youth group. Korwin-Mikke, who is the chairman of KORWiN, compared Europe to a rotting tree and refugees to parasites at a party convention on Saturday. “The parasites are not to blame, however, the trees are actually at fault,” said the politician. In Germany, dissatisfaction with Milkmaid Merkel reached 51% -- up 7% in a month


 The first large-scale inter-ethnic violence in Western Europe since 1945 broke out among pumigrants in Germany. Groups of some sixty Christians and sixty Muslims fought each other after a canteen dispute in their temporary shelter near Kassel (Daily Telegraph, 29 ix). Fourteen were injured, said police; and fighting continued later in groups of 70 and 300. The head of Germany’s police union said Christians and Muslims should be separated in the camps.

Elsewhere, in Leipzig, fighting broke out among 200 Syrian and Afghan asylum seekers, with pumigrants wielding table legs and slats. German MPs called for “Christians, Yazidis and other religious minorities” to be protected from Muslim A/As.

Other incidents included a riot at a refugee shelter in central Germany over a torn Koran, a Syrian-Afghani clash in Hamburg which needed 50 police to control it, and Muslim Chechens beating up Syrian Christians in a Berlin shelter.

Already, Thuringia had begun housing pumigrants separately according to their countries of origin – a response by Thuringia’s left-wing premier to violence at accommodation in the town of Suhl in August.

{Not having been much exposed to Western peecee claptrap, the pumigrants had yet to learn that all races, nationalities and religions were simplistic fictions....}


 Fed up with the West’s tardiness in confronting the rampaging Sunni jiheadists of ISICK in the Levant, President Vladimir Putin pulled out all the stops in a first-in-ten-years visit to United Nations HQ in NYC. He specially embarrassed Blacky Hussein Obarmy and Daft Dave by calling for a renewal of the WWII Alliance that had defeated the Nazis – for callow Western politicos got their jollies (like Obarmy’s Nobel Peace Prize) by going along with the left’s insistence that there were no Nazis in the world except themselves.

{On the same day that Putin spoke, Britain’s top trade union leader, a McCluskey, denounced Daft Dave as a Nazi to a Labour Party Annual Conference without more than a squeak from ‘Conservatives’ that McCluskey, Corbyn and McDonnell might ‘wreck the economy.’}

    Puto must also have got a laugh as the Tallyhoes of Afghastliland took (for three days) the major northern provincial capital of Kunduz. The West’s expenditure of fourteen years (including thousands of dead soldiers) had been to no avail – Western idealism having focused on providing girls’ schools and eradicating poppy growing.


In a startling burst of common sense, UK PM Daft Dave took £25M with him on a holiday to Jamaica to fund that country to build a high-quality prison that would house and use 300 of Britain’s Black felons as slave labour. The prisoner transfer agreement added to deals that had been struck with Albania, Nigeria, Somaliland, Rwanda and Libya.

However, the government considered an agreement with Jamaica particularly important because, at 600, its citizens make up the third-largest prison population of foreign nationals in UK jails (Guardian, 30 ix). The intergovernmental agreement was that prisoners would be deported regardless of their own wishes; but a field day for a few ‘uman rights lawyers was anticipated. UK officials said it would save taxpayers around £10million a year because of it costs £25,000 a year to keep an inmate in prison. Nearly two-thirds of Jamaican prisoners in the UK were serving sentences of four years or more for violence and drug offences.


Following a chorus complaint about Daft Dave’s plan to criminalize any speech or activity lacking in the “British value” of “mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs” (see e.g. Jonathan Dimbleby, in FREE SPEECH GETS TOP DEFENDER) star Torygraph columnist Philip Johnston wrote that the proposed catch-all Bill “would be deserving of a monarchical veto” (29 ix, ‘Take care not to erode our liberties in the fight against the hateful few’).

{Quite so! How could British politicos, having swamped the country with low-IQ third-world crazies who could not even be told not to wear niqabs and kaftans, proceed against ‘extremism’ in a way that would almost certainly imprison far more Christians and atheists than Muslims? Addressing the Muesli problem more directly, Russia began bombing terrorists fighting the relatively tolerant regime of Basher Assad in Syria; and Egypt announced that Cairo University was banning female academics from wearing the niqab.}


In a rare venture into philosophy, the well-preserved historian-novelist Princess Michael of Kent reminded the Henley Literary Festival of the view that any rights worth having needed to be earned. Defending her own reluctance to grant rights to animals (and to stop wearing foxhair coats), she said (Daily Mail, 30 ix):

“We have obligation. We have obligation to animals, but to say they have rights? They don’t have rights. They don’t vote. You only have rights if you pay your taxes. You earn your rights.”

{‘No representation without taxation’ could be a refreshing adage for the 21st century, traditional political maxims having been exhausted by greedy miners and casino bankers....}

Hungarian by descent, Her Royal Highness made an appearance in The g Factor (1996 [pp. 9-10]; 2000) where she was recorded as “a dazzling figure,” “warm, funny, frank and possessed of high intelligence.” Her life had seen several tragedies, leading her to work as patroness of the Samaritans. In 2004, at age 59, she drew criticism of ‘racism’ from MSM when she tried to quieten noisy Black diners in a New York restaurant, suggesting they remember the days of empire.


South African figures showed there had been 17,805 murders in 2014-5 – almost 49 each day in a population of 52 million. “17,805 is a number I would expect from a country at war,” said Dianne Barnard, the shadow police minister of the Democratic Alliance party. Rises in murder rates of 5% annually were blamed on corruption in Jacob Zuma’s Black government, in which political allies were often promoted above skilled professionals (Daily Telegraph, 30 ix).
