James Delingpole & the Rise of the Phoenix

I’m sure you’re as shocked as I am that the Delingpole podcast is coming to an end. But don’t worry. EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OK. Like the phoenix it will rise from the ashes, more golden, more sharp beaked and magnificent than ever before…. Before that happens, though , we need to work some magic.

Money magic.

The phoenix can only emerge from its fire egg, you see, if it has been fed some food. It takes PayPal. It takes Patreon donations (though if you’re uncomfortable with that after what happened to Sargon of Akkad, you might want to consider Subscribestar instead.). And, being an old fashioned sort, it still believes in Bitcoin.

Once it is fueled the phoenix can fly.

And there’s all manner of fun we can have together. There will be merchandise. A club. Live events. Special badges for special friends.

Watch this space for details of where you’ll be able to find the new podcast.

Here are various means by which you can feed the Phoenix:

PayPal

Patreon

Subscribestar

and finally,

Bitcoin (see the button below this post).

Les Misérables is another depressing example of the BBC’s woke quota targets

Plus: Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins shows you what equality between the sexes really looks like

As the Allies advanced towards Germany in September 1944, their supplies were brought all the way from western Normandy in a constant shuttle convoy known as the Red Ball Express. If you were making a realistic movie about this, three quarters of the truck drivers would be played by black actors, because that’s how it was in real life.

Similar rules would have to apply to any remake of Zulu or Zulu Dawn. It is an awkward but inescapable historical fact that there was no diversity whatsoever among Cetewayo’s Impis: they were all, resolutely, from the same African tribe. At the Battle of Crécy, on the other hand, every single participant was white European — even the misleadingly named Black Prince — so any movie version probably wouldn’t involve a call to Samuel L. Jackson’s casting agent.

Brexit Is Now Hanging by a Thread

Brexit
AFP/EMMANUEL DUNAND

Prime Minister Theresa May has (narrowly) survived the vote of no confidence and delivered another of her bullish speeches about how the people voted for Brexit and how Brexit is what she plans to deliver.

“Overwhelmingly, the British people want us to get on with delivering Brexit, and also address the other important issues they care about. But the deal I’ve worked to agree with the European Union was rejected by MPs and by a large margin. I believe it is my duty to deliver on the British people’s instruction to leave the European Union and I intend to do so,” she tells us.

Don’t believe a word.

Global Warming Does Not Cause Hurricanes

In this GOES-13 satellite image taken Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017 at 7:15 a.m. EDT, and released by NASA/NOAA GOES Project, Hurricane Irma tracks over Saint Martin and the Leeward Islands.

Global warming has not caused an increase in the frequency or intensity of hurricanes, a study 
published by the Global Warming Policy Foundation has confirmed.

Climate alarmists such Michael Mann, Kerry Emanuel, and Al Gore often claim that hurricanes are among the extreme weather events that have been exacerbated by man’s selfishness, greed, and refusal to amend his carbon-guzzling lifestyle.

But there is “little evidence” that this is so, according to the study’s author Paul Homewood.

Even the alarmist Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) acknowledged in its Fifth Assessment Report in 2013 that there has been little change in long-term hurricane activity:

Theresa May Has Her Downfall Moment

Everyone saw this coming, but few imagined she’d lose by quite such a large margin: 432 to 202.

It’s the worst defeat ever suffered by a British government:

Everyone Hates Gillette’s Woke Ad Campaign. But Look What Happened to Nike…

Gillette ad about Toxic Masculinity
Gillette/YouTube

Every man who is not a ‘this is what a feminist looks like’ mangina loathes the new Gillette ad. Many have held it up to scorn.

But what if, actually, Proctor & Gamble’s “toxic masculinity” ad campaign turns out to be a stroke of genius?

What if the reward it reaps in increased sales far outstrips any losses that may result from the fury it has caused its male customers?

The parallels with Nike’s Colin Kaepernick campaign are disturbing.

Initially, Nike’s favorability ratings took a 15-point hit when the sportswear brand chose provocatively to associate itself with the national-anthem-dissing, perma-kneeling, afo-sporting NFL star.

Even the president felt moved to comment:

But the subsequent #boycottNike campaign never really took off. And, as a result of the ad, Nike’s sales increased by 61 percent, boosting the company’s value by $6 billion.

Perhaps it’s true that in advertising there is no such thing as bad publicity. Whatever you think about those Gillette ads, it is currently the world’s most talked-about brand.

Personally, I’m now going to go out of my way to avoid using any more Gillette products if I can.

But it might not be as easy as I’d hoped.

I was about to subscribe to a company called Harry’s Razors, which delivers shaving products by post.

Then somebody drew this puke-inducingly woke advert from a couple of years ago to my attention:
