Thoughts on Jared O'Mara

One might be excused for thinking of O'Mara as a hero for dethroning that arch remainer, Clegg from his seat in Sheffield Hallam but you would be wrong. Judging from numerous reports, the man seems incapable of proper behaviour especially towards women.
Much of what is currently being said relates to what he is alleged to have said when he was much younger with apologists in the Labour Party suggesting that O'Mara was 'on a journey' and that he was a changed man such as Labour Shadow Women and Equalities minister Dawn Butler who says, “He probably still has further to go on his journey.”
The point is that what the Labour Party are saying is that when we are younger, we don't know what we are talking about but let's lower the voting age to sixteen. Stupidity compounded by yet more stultifying stupidity. Voters of Sheffield Hallam kick the lot of them out.

Have you noticed?

Have you noticed that Corbyn, leader of the UK's official opposition, not content with splashing out taxpayer's money at home has now gone to Europe to repeat the process. At home, no matter your status, he was promising more money, more job security whether you were young, old, ethnic or minority, you were in line for a cornucopia of munificence. Even the very wealthy would get away with only modest tax increases if they stayed long enough to qualify.
Now, he's gone to Europe telling foreign negotiators that under his leadership the UK's taxpayers would meet their extortionate Brexit demands whatever they were. The Labour Party wouldn't be paying, nor the Unions but adopting the tactics of capitulation and white flag diplomacy this man seems to be hell bent on reducing the UK to a laughing stock or worse.

Did Germanistas ever exist

At a time when untold opprobrium and scorn is poured on one section of society for their alleged brutality and bigotted opinion it is appropriate to think of another time in our history when these factions raised their ugly head. Today, I'm not talking about the right wing groups like EDL who have hardly killed anyone but of the followers of Islam who have slaughtered hundreds in the UK without anyone mentioning proscription. The claim is that Islam is a religion of peace and that the militant terrorists should be described as islamists to distinguish them.
But, fundamental or not, they are still followers of Islam and they pose a threat to all Western values and culture. Of course there are friendly Muslims who wish to blend into their new surroundings but it is, I suggest, beholden on them all to do more to adopt the native way of life; not the other way round. Going back to an earlier time, there were nice families living in Dresden, say, that harboured no bad feelings towards the UK, but we didn't need to label the warmongers as Germanistas to distinguish them from the peace loving tribes. They were all bombed in a 'Kill them all; let God sort them out' push for victory. We are in danger of allowing the do-gooders with their human rights to squash peoples' legitimate concerns that the authorities are too lax in their concern for Islamic proselytising and expansion.

Libya, tourism potential.

Boris Johnson has come under fire for suggesting that Libya could become a major tourist destination like Dubai, 'once they cleared away the bodies'.
Forgetting the throwaway line at the end, a reference to the intertribal conflict that still persists after the overthrow of Ghadaffi, Johnson is absolutely correct. Read my blog of 2010.
