…and it was largely the Italian experience in early 2020 that (supposedly) persuaded the UK and other European states to put into place the lockdown shutdowns, the facemask nonsense etc. God, what a disaster…

This is where England now is: a country where the people supposedly running the government know the price of everything, and the value of nothing.

…or something…

What a peculiar little twerp that Ferguson fellow is. I wonder what his married “ho” sees in him. She’s not bad-looking, from what I recall from the newspaper stories (in 2020, when Ferguson and said girlfriend broke the repressive “lockdown” “rules” which he himself was key to putting in place).

For the BBC, it may be too late, institutionally. Certainly about 90% of BBC staff have to go. A full-scale cultural purge is necessary, not only at the BBC, but at Sky, ITV, all through TV, radio, newspapers, and publishing.

    1. Watcher:
      The Daily Mail readers’ comments make the point— the sentence was pathetic, but was based on the perverse determination of the jury that the African did not *intend* to commit GBH. The untermensch will be out in little more than 2 years.

      How a jury came to the conclusion that there was no intent to commit GBH is hard to see. They must be total cretins. Surely, if a defendant uses a power drill on someone’s skull, that alone —in the absence of complete accident— implies intent?

      Thank you. Very interesting.

      The most telling part was that about inculcating “collective sense of guilt” in the German population, despite the fact that the German population had already suffered more than any other, certainly compared to the Western Allies (eg German losses from aerial bombing were between 300,000-800,000 —the true figure is unknown— as compared to no more than 60,000 in the UK.

  1. Thank you for the beautiful story of the old man visited by his favourite horse and the picture of those gorgeous girls doing the fascist salute. From where did you get that? Any phone numbers? (LOL)

      I do not recall from where I took the line of girls saluting. I am *guessing* that the picture was taken somewhere in Central Europe; hard to be more exact. Maybe Slovakia.

      As to telephone numbers, again I have to disappoint you. You do not specify which one; maybe the Titian-haired one 4th from the right? Or do you request *all* their numbers, you Latin Casanova?!
