Make James’s Health Great Again

My name’s James Delingpole – writer, blogger, podcaster, total hero/person you love to hate…and now victim of Lyme disease.
It’s that horrible thing you can get from diseased tick bites. If undiagnosed, like mine has been till now, it really messes you up.

I hate asking for money, let alone so much. But friends familiar with the disease have warned me that this may be a long, costly journey. If you’ve enjoyed my work, please consider contributing to my gofundme campaign.

15 reasons to fall in love with Germany and Germans

Be sure to lose your wallet in Germany. Photo: Getty

Things I learned about the Germans after a fortnight living as a non–tourist in Frankfurt:

1. Germans, and Germany generally, are among the world’s most underrated things. True they are not so adept at wit, snark, banter, jocularity or general frivolity. But they are kind, welcoming, generous and unlike, say, the French, charmingly grateful when you attempt to speak their quaint, guttural, impossibly inflected language even though — stimmt! — they speak yours so much better.
2. Here’s what happened when I lost my wallet.

UK Energy Regulator Caught Covering Up Green Scandals

ABINGDON, ENGLAND - JULY 29: A workman cleans panels at Landmead solar farm on July 29, 2015 near Abingdon, England. The 46 megawatt capacity installation was the largest in the United Kingdom when it was completed in 2014. Operated by BELECTRIC UK it supplies around 45 million kWh (kilowatt hours) …

Ofgem — the UK government regulator responsible for energy — has been caught covering up two major scandals in the ‘low carbon’ energy industry.

The cost of these scandals — involving smart meters and the renewable heat incentive (RHI) — may run into the tens of billions of pounds.

But rather than protect the consumer, which is supposedly its job, Ofgem has taken the side of the vested interests profiting from these industries. It has done this by using draconian gagging orders to silence two whistleblowers who had wanted to expose the scandals.

Ironically, the story was broken in The Guardian — a newspaper which has long been committed to supporting the corruption- and incompetence-riddled green industry that the whistleblowers were hoping to expose.

Remoaner Lord Adonis – ‘Ban Brexiteers from Holding Public Office’

Lord Andrew Adonis, former Transport Secretary and a leader of the campaign 'Brexit is not a Done Deal', gestures as he speaks at The Clubhouse in central London on February 9, 2018. The main campaign groups who would like to see the UK remain in the European Union came together …

Lord Adonis — former Minister of State for Education under Tony Blair — has issued a new fatwa on Brexit: those responsible must be investigated by public inquiry and banned from holding political office ever again.

So let’s just get this clear. In June 2016, 17.4 million people voted for Brexit — more people than have ever voted for any cause in British history — but that democratic decision is not good enough for Lord Adonis who now thinks it must be stopped.

Not only does he think it must be stopped but he also thinks ‘those directly responsible’ — presumably the most politically senior Brexit campaigners like Boris Johnson and Michael Gove — should be investigated by a public inquiry whose outcome Lord Adonis has already predetermined: they must never hold office again.

But why should the public be forced to pay for an inquiry whose purpose was to punish those politicians who most closely represented them?

‘Civil War Is Coming to Europe’ Warns German Politician

Supporters of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party wave German flags as they walk behind a barrage of riot police during a demonstration on September 1, 2018 in Chemnitz, eastern Germany. - The demonstration was organised in a reaction to a knife killing, allegedly by an Iraqi and a …

“Civil war is coming to Europe,” a German city politician told me this week.

I shan’t mention his name – it was an off-the-record briefing and, anyway, in Germany there are penalties for this kind of frankness.

But he was only repeating what plenty of other people say in private in Germany where I’ve spent the last couple of weeks, soaking up the atmosphere, people-watching, gauging the public mood in the wake of Angela Merkel’s open invitation to perhaps three million immigrants – most of them fighting-age males from Muslim countries.

Three million is higher than the figure admitted by the German authorities, which tend to put it closer to 1.5 million. My source tells me the higher number is closer to the mark.

I was staying in Frankfurt, not one of the places hardest hit by the immigration wave. Partly this is because its traditions as an “open city” date back centuries so, culturally it has always been better attuned to accepting and absorbing immigrants from all backgrounds. Partly it’s because, being Germany’s financial centre, it tends to attract the better educated sort of immigrant.

Gloriously macho: Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan reviewed

It’s trash of course, but high-octane, watchable trash: John Krasinski and Wendell Pierce in Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan (Amazon Studios)
It’s trash of course, but high-octane, watchable trash: John Krasinski and Wendell Pierce in Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan (Amazon Studios)

For too long the leftie-dominated entertainment industry has been ignoring the truth about our world

This week’s guilty pleasure is Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan (Amazon Prime). It’s trash, of course, but very well done, high-octane, watchable trash. And if you want to feel better about your lowbrow tastes, make sure you read the finger-wagging critique by one Sonia Saraiya in Vanity Fair first.

Jack Ryan feels like a machine designed to turn us all into the sort of viewers who disappear smiling down jingoistic Fox News rabbit holes,’ she says, enticingly. And: ‘Both its protagonist and its plot are based on the foundational, unquestioned notion that American-military might — the best-funded killing infrastructure in human history — is helping to save the world.’ And: ‘Its other primary story objective is proving that Jack Ryan deserves his white male entitlement…’

Not so much a guilty pleasure after that little lecture, then; more a bounden and sacred duty.

Leave the Cornish Pasty Alone, NHS Bureaucrats!

ST AUSTELL, ENGLAND - MARCH 03: Freshly baked pasties are taken out of the oven at the World Cornish Pasty Championships at The Eden Project on March 3, 2012 in St Austell, England. Cooks from around the world have flown into Cornwall to celebrate the popular local delicacy, that was …

Some ghastly National Health Service bureaucrat wants to change the recipe of Cornish pasties so that they are less Cornish, less pasty-like, and more ‘healthy’.
Well of course she does. It’s what public health officials do.

The bureaucrat, called Jill Venables, was speaking at a conference of Public Health England, the ghastly, finger-wagging quango established by David Cameron’s pretend-Conservative government in one of its many fits of pettifogging Nanny Statism.

According to the Telegraph:

Ms Venables told the Public Health England conference that some hospital visitors eat three Cornish pasties a day.

While acknowledging there is “nothing evil” about a traditional pasty, which can comprise up to 800 calories, she said she wanted to “save patients’ lives, which is why we are focusing on therapeutic diets”.

Harrison Ford Rages Against Global Warming Skeptics: ‘The Future of Humanity Is at Stake’

Harrison Ford in The Fugitive ( Warner Bros., 1993)
Warner Bros.

Actor Harrison Ford has called out “people who don’t believe in science or, worse than that, pretend they don’t believe in science” and claims that we are “shit out of time” to save the planet from global warming.

The Star Wars and Indiana Jones star, according to reports, didn’t actually mention President Donald Trump by name but made it clear who the target of his politically charged remarks were directed at.
Ford assumed his left-leaning audience of eco-campaigning elites at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco were probably going to work out his subtle hint, when he urged “For God’s sake, stop electing leaders who don’t believe in science.”

“They know who they are. We know who they are.” Ford added.

According to the Huffington Post:

Ford warned “the future of humanity was at stake,” and everyone, whether “rich or poor, powerful or powerless,” would “suffer the effects of climate change and ecosystem destruction.”

The “greatest moral crisis of our time” was that “those least responsible will bear the greatest costs,” he said, adding, “We are shit out of time.”

President Trump’s climate policies are a disaster because…bad fart joke.

No, really. This is the level of intelligence and wit in the latest attack by the liberal-left entertainment industry on President Donald Trump.

Compare and contrast two religious leaders. Which of these do you think most possesses the wisdom, courage, and conviction you’d hope for from the head of your faith?

Exhibit a)

Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury

Here he is speaking at a meeting of the hard-left trades unions which now finance and largely control Jeremy Corbyn’s viciously anti-Semitic, hardline socialist Labour Party.
