Exactly: this is all a smokescreen laid down by an incompetent government and its tame scribblers at the Times, Telegraph, Spectator etc in order to try to blame one decent Englishman, an ex-Marines sergeant trying to help animals and people, for the fact that the UK and US governments have shown themselves unfit for purpose.

The UK bureaucracy and the Cabinet of Clowns are now using tame msm scribblers to —in effect— blame Pen Farthing for the shambolic way in which the withdrawal from Afghanistan has been handled. Look at this tweet by some bitch who is now the Defence Editor of the “Times “newspaper”:

Farthing did not “abandon” his Afghan staff. They were not allowed into the airport area. That was the decision either of the US Army, or of the Taliban. Yes, Farthing could have stayed in Kabul. That would have meant suffering and death for those 200 animals, possibly for him too, possibly for the Afghan staff of the charity (and yes, they are still in that same peril, but no worse peril because of his departure).

Farthing took a decision to save those he could. Easy to criticize someone faced with an impossible choice. MSM scribblers should take a wider view, not just be conduits for official propaganda.

As I thought yesterday, and before, this evil stupid government is trying to scapegoat Farthing for weeks, months, even years of shambolic British Government incompetence. Absolutely absurd, and absolutely disgusting.

Oh, and lookee here: expenses cheat and corrupt bastard ex-minister David Gauke (completely in the pocket of the Jewish/Israel lobby) decides to call the rescue of cats and dogs “sentimentality”.

Expenses freeloader Gauke was lucky not to have been exposed in the 2020 appeal of one of Alison Chabloz’s cases, an appeal that she won, in effect, when the CPS declined to provide disclosure of documents relating to how Gauke and/or others had been influenced behind the scenes by the fanatical Jew-Zionist pressure group, “Campaign Against Antisemitism” [“CAA”].

When the CPS declined to show the appeal judge [H.H. Judge Egbuna, sitting at Derby Crown Court] the documentation, the CPS response to Alison Chabloz’s appeal was abandoned and the conviction quashed (she had, at a much earlier stage, been released from prison on bail pending the appeal. She was in prison for 3-4 days, after having been sentenced by a magistrate).

After that, the “CAA” were desperate to “get” Alison Chabloz by making malicious complaints and, eventually, they did get her (she has, at time of writing, now again been in prison for two weeks), but that is another story.

Look at that idiot! Just someone with no real compassion or empathy who wants to virtue-signal how much he cares about “people” (in the abstract). Thinks he is clever calling the cats and dogs “hedgehogs”, in a failed attempt to devalue them. Sick little bastard.

Interesting…

Not that I think that there is anything at all to admire in the Taliban barbarians. Still, good to see that some young people in the UK are waking up to “the enemies within”…

Saw this, too: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9936399/Secret-army-200-weapons-obsessed-ex-soldiers-plotting-attacks-vaccine-centres.html. Interesting, but for how long can such a group resist infiltration by State organs? The newspapers are already in, it seems.

More tweets

I have little interest in the “honours” now given out like confetti (won a football or rugby game overseas? Knighthood. Won an Olympic gold medal? Knighthood. Gave money to the Conservative Party? Peerage. Etc.), but it might redeem the honours system a little were really heroic and decent people to be so honoured.

Once again, that fine actor and animal advocate, Peter Egan [A Perfect Spy etc https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Perfect_Spy_(TV_series); https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Perfect_Spy; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Egan] hits the right note.

Come to think of it, now that honours are given out freely to actors and actresses etc, why has Egan never received one? He has done a huge amount of work for suffering animals, especially in relation to the cruel bear bile trade in South East Asia.

Late tweets

Very true, very logical, but that fails to take into account at the extent to which the Covid-19 “panicdemic” has been weaponized by the transnational conspiracy. Hence the fear propaganda for the past 19 months.

Not a white face. Not one.

Exactly. You see it in “Labour” pronouncements, and you see it in tweets from the Twitter-twits: “we support what the Conservatives are doing, but they should be doing it more efficiently, slightly fairer, and both wearing a facemask and bending the knee to the blacks“.

Late music

  1. Hello Ian: I just saw that Pen Farthing and his “babies” made it out of Kabul. I am so glad! May all those who abused him suffer some horrible disease! Humans are overrated!

  2. Going completely off the subject. I finished reading Lindsey Hughes excellent and detailed book “Russia in the Age of Peter the Great” and I have some interesting details about the Law in those days.

    According to the Russian Penal Code of 1649, 35 crimes carried the death penalty. Peter tried to reform the Law but it was a never-ending affair and he decided to apply the Military Code devised by him and his lawyers. According to it, there were 122 crimes/misdemeanours punished with death!

    I think this was a monstrosity but guess what? The English authoress points out that around that time (1715) in England 160 criminal offences were punishable by death! Talking about brutality! Obviously, nowadays we have gone to the other extreme. Almost nobody gets executed, regardless of how atrocious his/her crime may be. If I was PM I would put you in charge of the legal system. I am sure you would be more benign than me! (LOL)

    PS: Perhaps what we need is another Peter the Great…

      Yes, I think that you are less easy-going than me, though I have my moments as well! I would, were I a judge, temper justice with mercy. The law, though, must stand clearly against both wickedness and decadence.

      As you say, at one time a large number of crimes in England were once capital crimes. This turned out to result in fewer convictions, though. Even the juries of that era (selected by property qualification) were often unwilling to see “deserving” defendants (especially the young, women, or what we now term “vulnerable”) go to the scaffold. For example, where the difference between theft as felony and theft as mere misdemeanour was set at 2 guineas, the jury would often convict of the misdemeanour but not of the felony, even where the amount was clearly above the 2 guinea limit.

      The times were such as to elevate property above almost everything, as finance-capitalism arose across Europe.

      1. Thank you for your observations. It came as a surprise to me that the juries tended to show mercy in many cases. I also remember that many crimes (although quite petty) were punished with “transportation”. That meant shipping the offenders to Australia, North America or the Caribean where they were brutally exploited and treated almost as slaves, if I remember correctly they were called “indentured servants”.

        Thanks to you I am learning very interesting points of English Law, I supposed I should send you some money for tuition (LOL)

        BTW, we are having the most gorgeous weather here in Buenos Aires, spring has almost arrived. How is it over there?

        Indentured servants were mostly people in debt, and mostly went to Virginia, though as you say also to the Caribbean. Transportation was to Australia in most cases, though I seem to recall that Moll Flanders [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moll_Flanders] is sent to America, in the Defoe novel.

        Weather? Fairly warm here (English SSW coast), but summer seems to be over, pretty much (I prefer cooler weather anyway).

      3. Thank you for that observation about Australia. I remember that, after the loss of the American colonies, the newly discovered Australia became England’s overseas prison, something that contributed to the unfair and nasty idea that many Englishmen had of the Australians as a nation of criminals. That was a view that lingered on into the XX century as I discovered reading the letters and memoirs of Australian soldiers of WW1 and WW2

        PS: I do also prefer cooler weather, particularly after suffering many terribly hot summers here! Buenos Aires is not only hot but also fairly humid during the summer.

        As you say, but not all Australia had convict settlers. Some areas, notably South Australia, also Victoria, had no convict-transportees at all. SA was settled by a Church of England project (using volunteers). The main transportation colonies (later, states) were New South Wales and Tasmania.

        When I was 10-11 (1967), and first in Australia, there was discussion about whether the British National Anthem as Australian anthem should be replaced, and if so by what. Eventually they decided on Advance Australia Fair, but a minority wanted Waltzing Matilda, which was derided as being about a sheep-stealer.

        The new anthem only came in in the 1970s, though.

      5. Thank you for the information about Australia. I was surprised to find out that neither Victoria nor South Australia received any convicts. The song “Waltzing Matilda” is a joke and “Advance Australia Fair” comes very close.

        Talking about Waltzing Matilda there is a beautiful and very sad song by John McDermott called “And the band played Waltzing Matilda” about the horrible massacre suffered by the ANZACS and the British at Gallipoli in 1915.

        Gallipoli was a completely bungled operation planned —and misconceived— mainly by Winston Churchill, someone with no idea of military strategy. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gallipoli_campaign.

        I have been on that peninsula twice, and the first time I stayed for three days at Canakkale, a town on the other side of the strait (there is a car ferry. It takes about 20 mins or so).

        ” The Allied campaign was plagued by ill-defined goals, poor planning, insufficient artillery, inexperienced troops, inaccurate maps, poor intelligence, overconfidence, inadequate equipment, and logistical and tactical deficiencies at all levels” [Wikipedia].

        The repetitions of history are sad…

        The town of Canakkale is packed for a few days each year when Australians and New Zealanders stay to commemorate the battle. Apparently, local hotels all have the film Gallipoli playing on a loop.

        That is around 25 April every year (ANZAC Day).

        I was there, when I stayed for a few days, in early April. At that time, the town has very few tourists. There was even a little slushy snow.

        There were 120,000 British casualties, nearly 36,000 ANZAC casualties and, not often mentioned, 27,000 French, among others. The Turks suffered dead and wounded between 200,000-350,000.

        ps. this is Canakkale:

        and I now read that a bridge has been built (to be finished this year)

        The longest suspension bridge in the world.
