Bojo, Gove, Cummings, Princess Nut-Nut… If Only They Could All Lose

MANCHESTER, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 02: Prime Minister Boris Johnson exits the hall with his girlfriend Carrie Symonds following his keynote speech on day four of the 2019 Conservative Party Conference at Manchester Central on October 2, 2019 in Manchester, England. The U.K. government prepares to formally submit its finalised Brexit …

Did Prime Minister Boris Johnson say – or did he not say – that he would ‘rather let the bodies pile high in their thousands’ than order yet another lockdown?

Johnson has denied it.

Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Michael Gove is saying that he ‘never heard’ Johnson saying it and that  ‘the idea that he would say any such thing I find incredible.’

Other anonymous Westminster insiders are swearing blind that Johnson did say it.

But frankly who cares? The fact that this question is currently the main topic of debate in British newspapers speaks volumes about just how debased our political and media culture has become; and also, worse, about the degree to which it is now dominated by the kind of headbanger who would happily keep the entire country masked, locked down, socially isolated and quarantined for all eternity rather than countenance a return to the ‘Old Normal’ most of us surely so sorely miss.

‘Able-Bodied’ Is Offensive, Claims Disability Charity

A charity for the disabled has urged us to avoid using words like ‘able-bodied’ lest it offend people who aren’t, er, as bodily able as people who are able-bodied. This is insanity – and I shall demonstrate it why it is insanity in just a moment.

According to the Telegraph:

A list of appropriate and inappropriate terms for those with disabilities has been released by Leonard Cheshire, adding that the language used is “vital”.

The charity, set up in 1948 by RAF group captain Leonard Cheshire, said that people should say “non-disabled” rather than “able-bodied.”

The term “able-bodied” is seen by some people in the disabled community as implying that all people with disabilities do not have “able bodies”.

“Blind” should also be avoided, according to their list, with people urged to use “person with visual impairment” instead.

To help the campaign, the charity has enlisted the support of disabled rapper Kray-Z Legz who is quoted by the Telegraph thus:

‘Lockdown Britain Has Lost Blitz Spirit’, Wartime Couple Tell Fox

Britain has mostly lost the ‘Blitz Spirit’ that got it through the Second World War, an elderly couple told Breitbart News on the campaign trail with actor-turned-London-Mayoral-candidate Laurence Fox. They both supported Fox’s views that London’s lockdown should end now.

“We’ve had enough,” said the elderly gentleman.

His wife said they’d coped with being locked down in their London flat because of their wartime experiences:

We were evacuees during the Second World War. We know what it’s like to be separated from your family. So we just got on with it like we did in the war.

Has Britain lost the spirit it had in the war? “Of course,” said the lady. “It’s a totally different country.”

Thousands Upon Thousands Rally Against Lockdown, Vax Passes in London

This is the event that the BBC and the rest of the legacy media tried to airbrush out of history: thousands upon thousands of people marching through central London in protest over lockdown and the imminent threat of vaccine passports.

It was by some margin the biggest rally held so far in the UK against the government’s draconian Chinese coronavirus restrictions. While the MSM put a low estimate on the numbers — 10,000, according to Reuters — others claim the turnout was considerably higher.

What’s certain is that, as with previous anti-lockdown marches, the MSM has done its very best to ignore it. In order for Extinction Rebellion to get mass media coverage, all it has to do is persuade a handful of activists to go with hammers (one ludicrously bearing the message ‘Care – act with love’) and chisels to smash a few windows at a corporate HQ and the story is everywhere, from the BBC to the Sun.

Piers Morgan Is No Helpless Cancel Culture Victim

Piers

Lots of people are claiming to feel sorry for Piers Morgan, the professional loudmouth supposedly driven from his breakfast TV show for having incurred the wrath of Meghan Markle and her woke mob. But I’m not one of them, not least because of a strange incident involving a recent BBC News interview with Andrew Neil.

Neil was asked whether he’d consider giving Morgan a job at the new TV channel he is launching, GB News. He replied that he thought Morgan would be a “huge asset” and that he’d be delighted to talk to him “if he were up for it.”

This was then written up in the Sun newspaper, as though it were all just a random, spur-of-the-moment question and answer, with Neil having previously never given a moment’s thought to the issue.

BBC Axes Worst Comedy Show Evah, The Mash Report

The BBC has put its worst-ever ‘comedy’ show out of its misery. Finally, after four toe-curlingly unfunny seasons, The Mash Report has been axed.

You probably won’t have watched The Mash Report – almost no one did. That’s because its function (this goes for a lot of BBC contemporary comedy) was not to entertain or amuse, but to reinforce woke values.

Its presenter, Nish Kumar was widely celebrated as the unfunniest man in comedy. This reputation was clinched in December 2019 when he was booed off stage and had a bread roll chucked at him at a charity gig for the Lord’s Taverners.

Now Corona Masks Are Polluting Beaches and Coral Reefs. Will They be Banned?

Israeli volunteers gather face masks as they take part in a mass beach clean up during a one-day operation launched by some 20 Israeli associations to "beat the world record" for beach cleaning, on the shore of the city of Netanya on, October 30, 2020. - From the north to …

BBC film crew has recorded heartbreaking footage of a once-beautiful coral reef in the Philippines choked with floating PPE equipment and discarded surgical masks.

Clearly this is a serious and growing problem.

Actor Laurence Fox is standing for election as Mayor of London. Quite what chance he’ll have against the brutal election machine of incumbent Sadiq Khan is hard to say. But even if Fox doesn’t succeed it will have been worth it just for this brilliant, inspirational campaign video.

Lockdown Equivalent Every Two Years to Save Planet, Claim ‘Experts’

lockdown

Carbon dioxide emissions need to fall by the equivalent of a lockdown every two years to save the planet, climate scientists have claimed.

The claim derives from a paper in the journal Nature Climate Change titled ‘Fossil CO2 emissions in the post-COVID-19 era’.

According to the abstract:

Five years after the adoption of the Paris Climate Agreement, growth in global CO2emissions has begun to falter. The pervasive disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic have radically altered the trajectory of global CO2 emissions. Contradictory effects of the post-COVID-19 investments in fossil fuel-based infrastructure and the recent strengthening of climate targets must be addressed with new policy choices to sustain a decline in global emissions in the post-COVID-19 era.

In short, the nations of the world will need to do much, much more if they are to meet the CO2emissions reduction targets set out by the Paris Climate Agreement. This is predicated on the idea that by keeping global industrial CO2emissions below a certain level, mankind will somehow tweak the global temperature control knob to such effect that planetary warming will be kept within a supposedly safe range of “1.5 °C to well below 2 °C.”

Rishi Sunak’s Cloud Cuckoo Land Budget Will Not Save the UK’s Doomed Economy

LONDON, ENGLAND - MARCH 03: Chancellor Of The Exchequer, Rishi Sunak stands with the Budget Box outside 11 Downing Street ahead of the Chancellor of the Exchequer's delivery of the budget on March 3, 2021 in London, England. The Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, presents his second budget to the House of …

We had expected Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak to deliver the Magic Money Tree but what he has actually delivered is a Cloud Cuckoo Land budget. Really, you don’t need to be a Goldman-Sachs-trained economist to realise that the numbers just don’t add up and that this is a stop-gap, smoke-and-mirrors exercise to fool us into imagining that the UK economy is not on the brink of total disaster.

Sure, during his lonely speech, delivered to an almost empty chamber, Sunak dropped some heavy hints that all was not well.

Sunak said: “It is going to be the work of many governments over many decades to [pay the money borrowed] back”, and just a one per cent increase in interest rates and inflation now would increase the cost of the government’s debts by £25 billion at a stroke.
