The UK will take the juice off your hands for free if you don’t want it Germany. Us thinking some degree of protection is better than a politicians promise or lies.
The US has launched airstrikes on eastern Syria – the first military action undertaken since Joe Biden became president.
The Pentagon’s chief spokesperson John Kirby said: “This proportionate military response was conducted together with diplomatic measures, including consultation with coalition partners. “At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to deescalate the overall situation in eastern Syria and Iraq.”
You’re kidding right?
Thinking your actions will deescalate the overall situation.
Sometimes stupidity shines through and in this case ‘The US STILL don’t know what they do’.
Once again you’ve bombed a foreign country, in the Middle East.
And again, to a vast swathe of the Middle East, you are the aggressor.
Only do you think this will stop the attacks?
No way in hell will your actions do that and the attacks will probably intensify from mobile units rather than from a base.
Thus you will escalate. You always do.
And you will lose, again.
It’s like you never learn.
The East’s ethos, belief’s, traditions, or whatever, don’t work the same way as the West. To that end you had to butt out of Syria while Russia, Iran, the Kurd’s, plus friends, came in to sort the mess out you generated in your obsession to depose Bashar al-Assad.
Have you also forgotten the US betrayal of those Kurd’s?
I’m betting they haven’t.
So now I’m hoping you’re done throwing munitions around.
Because in the Middle East world of tit for tat,
You haven’t learned a thing from your previous mistakes.
The Prince of Wales has made the 200-round mile journey to Central London and back to visit the Duke of Edinburgh in hospital.
While I do like the Duke as a no B.S. plain speaking sort of guy (met him when serving). That arse wipe and tree hugger, Prince Charles is a totally different story.
However, ignoring my personal likes and dislikes.
The law is straightforward.
Essential travel only. Backed up with fines for those who transgress.
That is being enforced BIG TIME on the little people.
Even those desperate to say their goodbyes to relatives on their death bed.
Which the Duke is not.
Only will ‘Prince’ Charles be fined? No way in hell!
One law for the little people, no laws for the Aristocracy, Landed Gentry, Politicians, and their senior advisors.
How very ‘British’ to kowtow to them!
At least that is what they once claimed.
So is it any surprise that:-
(Huff) A coronavirus mutation first identified in Bristol has been designated a “variant of concern” by UK government scientists.
It is the fourth “variant of concern” identified by the New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group (Nervtag).
The other three were first found in Kent in southern England, South Africa, and Brazil.
Ethnically diverse means, as an example, ethnic African or Asian races, who will both have different gene sets to Westerners. Thus the Covid-19 virus has plenty of ‘scope’ to mutate some more.
Thus we end up with yet another variant.
Sometimes I wonder about the policy of ‘ethnic enrichment’ within the UK.
To introduce something that rarely mixes (say by marriage) with the indigenous population BUT opens avenues for virus mutation does make you think a bit.
Note this is not a disparaging racial comment, just an layman’s observation.
Brits can be given a ten-year maximum sentence for the following crimes:
Possession of a firearm
Burglary with intent to commit rape
Indecency with children under 14
Meeting a child following sexual grooming
Making threats to kill
Administering poison so as to endanger life
Cruelty to persons under 16
Fraud by false representation
Yet few are.
Even then they usually get released well within that tariff.
Only now power mad, our Muppet of a Health Secretary Hancock, under new Covid rules, will jail Brits for 10 years who lie about their holiday destinations.
It costs something like £37500 a year to keep someone in jail,
£375,000 for ten years.
Now the enforced quarantine. That I do agree with.
Only I’m pretty certain people will see how foolish it is to force people to pay for quarantine enforcement of Covid rules. It’s draconian, and will ruin some people’s lives. Especially those who CANT PAY.
Small businesses and flight crews coming to mind.
What about returning troops?
Who pays for them?
Aside from us the tax payer.
I have little objection about the quarantine but ultimately FORCING people to pay is WAY STUPID and will encourage lying, deception, and deceit.
Only what of those who fly into Europe and catch a ferry?
With no tan, who’s to know where they came from, or which sunbed they used in their European hotel??
Then there are life flights, a crew of 4-6 plus the patient, plus relative?
Welcome home, we’d like to rush you to hospital to save your life but you have to stay in this hotel first.
As for the specialist crew? Who pays for their quarantine??
Who replaces them while they are ‘locked up’?
This is typical UK Gov politics at it’s worse.
Ill thought out, will destroy people’s lives, ultimately cost us dearly, and will stop NOTHING.
Still as it’s silly season for writing laws, why not jail MP’s for lying. 10 years seems about right. How many MP’s are there ? 650.
That will make jobs to build yet another prison, just for them.
Do they all lie? If they follow and tout their various parties policies and promises, probably. How about those who fiddle their expenses? That’s lying isn’t it?
Life would be so much simpler if the military took over.
After all it’s got to be better than the police state we’re living in now.
Wow, a whole week.
And 28 days after the schools have re-opened we’ll be right back where we were. A rising tide of infections BECAUSE LESSONS WON’T HAVE BEEN LEARNED FROM LAST TIME , and the ‘reopening of the centers of onward local transmission‘ aka schools starts infecting families and onward into places of work.
Vaccinate first, school later.
What’s so damn hard to understand about that!
As for Whitty?
He seriously needs to consider a career change where he can do no harm.
As for Boris Johnson?
With over 106,000 DEATHS
because of his incompetence.
His time will come once the
sheeple finally work out
it’s all his fault!
It seems someone didn’t get the memo.
Residents in areas where the South African Covid variant has been transmitted should ‘think again’ before deciding to leave the house, a minister has said. Ealing, Haringey, Mitcham, Walsall, Broxbourne, Maidstone, Woking and Southport are currently considered to be hotspots for the South African strain, which is more infectious than other variants. Speaking to Sky News this morning, Michelle Donelan [Minister of State for Universities since 2020] described the UK as at a ‘perilous’ stage of the pandemic and urged residents within the eight postcodes to take extra caution when leaving their homes. She went on: ‘The message is “think again” just before you go about activities, even for those activities that are within the rules such as essential shopping. (Link)
So what does that mean?
The parents stay at home and await infection from the schools thanks to Boris Johnson’s incompetence? Somehow the logic of the pudgy little man beggars belief.
Why? The age of woke is upon us!
Personally I preferred when we had only a few enemies.
Now we have to put up with Bible / Koran punching, cancel agenda, commies, knitting groups, old spinsters, ban everything, domestic terrorism, possible civil war, milksop appeasement politics, lousy governments pandering to the minority and NOT the majority, the self entitled, the super rich and mouthy celeb’s, racists, bankers, big business, history re-writers, culture cancelling, nationalists, state and social censorship, so many laws that even reading them IS AN OFFENSE, police enforcing government policy and not the law, kids wearing black pajamas, (did I mention the anti whites?) Oh yeah I did mention the RACISTS, and my all time hate (Yet another US import that has landed on our shores) Karen’s.
Not to mention Covid, vaccines, Covid deniers, and the EU, (Darn it I just did).
Hell I nearly forgot the global warmers, tree hugging, environmentalists, stupid politicians, celebs, religious leaders, the WHO, WWF, Green whatever, and local government, all trying to stop me burning my domestic waste, and use insecticides on my home grown veggies! Let alone banning log burners and drilling down to make my own well from the ground water that is only 30 feet below us!
Just stop the world as I want to get off!
Either that or nuke the planet and let the cockroaches rule at last!
Come too think about it, I need to clarify that one too in case I offend a minority group.
I’m talking about the insect version of cockroaches
and not the political variety.
Alfred Bernhard Nobel, the inventor of Dynamite and Founder of the Nobel Peace Prize. He made something that went boom and was used by all sorts of criminals, be they common or state.
Norwegian parliamentarian Petter Eide nominates BLM for Nobel Peace Prize, saying BLM is ‘strongest global force against racial injustice.’
What a tosser!
BLM? they do boom, burn, domestic terrorism, re-write history, destroy cultures, disrupt nations, riot, attack innocents and law enforcement.
BLM protesters have clashed with police more than once in various cities, causing unrest, looting shops, vandalizing houses of worship, and setting fire to buildings
AND THAT’S JUST THEIR GOOD POINTS.
The World Health Organisation has urged the UK and other wealthy countries to take a break from their massive vaccination programmes once the most vulnerable groups are covered.
My wife comes first.
Boris Johnson and the rest of the moronic politicians better keep that in mind.
Britain could be poised to join an alliance known as ‘Asian NATO’ in order to restrain China’s ambitions.
Reports in Indian media have floated the idea of Britain joining the so-called ‘Quad’ which currently consists of the United States, Japan, India and Australia.
With Britain lining up what Dominic Raab (another fk’ing armchair warrior) has called an ‘Indo-Pacific tilt’ after its departure from the EU, membership in the ‘Quad’ would enlarge an alliance of countries who have all clashed with an assertive Beijing in recent months. (DM)
Oh no! Surely not another US inspired fk.up.
Or is this just Boris Johnson and his goon squad latest “let’s hold hands with the stupid” plan?
For me it’s just another gang that the UK puppy is getting conned into joining. Yet another ‘going to get nowhere but will cost a heap of money, and probably a few lives within the UK forces’ type of pointless exercise.
There was little overt assertiveness from China until Trump took it on himself to destabilize world trading. He who should have listened to the more astute who were saying “Don’t poke the dragon”!
As a result of Trump doing just that, China retaliated and started slapping sanctions and tariffs on anyone associated with the US.
A really old game is that, and it’s called tit for tat.
Anyway, what’s this particular end game?
What’s the goal?
To slap more sanctions on China? Like they care.
Or perhaps a full on regime change in China.
(Probably doable in the eyes of some ancient almost senile general in the Pentagon or some spook in the CIA (from the Bay of Pigs era) who were both brought up to believe that it is possible to win a nuclear war).
Or maybe someone even more senile in the White House! Again from the era that thought the United States of America could beat anyone.
Still, at least one of the newly minted ‘Quad’ has plenty of experience of failing to achieve a positive result from a regime change.
There again, there is the thought going around that the West’s governments need a war to deflect people’s attention from their fk’ups regarding COVID.
So, I would say that I’m expecting a tirade of hatred towards the Chinese in the UK mainstream media and non stop China bashing on social media including the common video streamers like YouTube. Only that has been something building up for a few months.
Incidentally did you know the Chinese are responsible for all the pollution in the world? I didn’t. There again I’m not someone trying to put the blame about everything on the Chinese.
Except for COVID, 101% them, and that sucks BIG TIME.
It gives me absolutely no joy, no conformation of an observation I made in a post, or satisfaction to write this post.
To me it was what was going to happen thanks to a limp wrist prime minister and his minions. All of whom were so desperate to not be seen as Christmas Grinches that they ‘relaxed the rules’ of lockdown and mixing.
I’ve listed no names out of respect.
If you want to search for it in the media that’s up to you.
The family, who had been shielding since March, met up on December 25 after the UK Government relaxed rules and allowed households to meet for one day only. The husband caught coronavirus when he visited his parents’ house for just two hours. That short time was enough for the 48-year-old and several family members to contract Covid.
The following week saw him, his parents, aged 79 and 82, and his uncle, who was in his early 70s, all test positive for COVID-19.
All of them tragically passed away and another uncle, who also caught coronavirus and is still recovering after becoming seriously ill.
It may have been political suicide to ban Christmas but, as a result of wanting to stay in power, a family lost four members who WOULD HAVE BEEN ALIVE TODAY if that worm PM Boris Johnson had cancelled Christmas.
Rather like the lack lustre, weak, poorly thought out, feeble air quarantine this fool of a prime minister is imposing.
Still, by not restricting tourists, foreign tourists, it will keep the airlines happy.
Won’t it Boris?
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Enrique Tarrio, the leader of the Proud Boys extremist group, has a past as an informer for federal and local law enforcement, repeatedly working undercover for investigators after he was arrested in 2012, according to a former prosecutor and a transcript of a 2014 federal court proceeding obtained by Reuters.
While I find this is really funny,
It should make you think about who you really trust.
Be that within Left, Right, BLM, Antifa, university protest, domestic terrorist groups, Trump re-election group leadership and, for example, TEXIT’s top echelon. Not forgetting free militia, prepping and survivalist groups.
Especially those who have forums or social media platforms.
After all there are always key members on those who can ‘influence’ a wide audience on the back of their ‘forum ranking’.
All of them breaking a golden rule of politics “Watch yer back Jack”.
Because you never know who is really in charge?
The guy you call ‘FRIEND’ or his master you hate.
Not forgetting the promises of Big Tech that swear blind they would NEVER work with your government. Only have you thought about why they ask so much information about you??
At least in the UK, Russia, and China YOU KNOW the state reads everything.
Plus the knowledge that if someone with even a little bit of Cyber knowledge takes an interest in you. They can find out your real name, DOB, National Insurance Number, and a whole host of other information about you, FOR FREE!
Just because you’re paranoid,
Doesn’t mean you aren’t being watched!
The UK’s pudgy Prime Minister is shedding crocodile tears.
How dare he fake a reaction for what HE AND HIS MINIONS did.
Boris Johnson has insisted his government “did everything we could” to limit coronavirus deaths and said he was “deeply sorry” after the UK toll exceeded 100,000 on nearly every metric. (Guardian)
You foul smelling POS Johnson.
You and your sycophantic minions, your cabinet, political advisors, and back benchers, your policies, your constant u-turns, late calls, herd immunity, your so called scientific ex-spurts, your chancellor, the ultimate POS health secretary, and BIG BUSINESS.
You failed to do what would have helped this country from the word GO! You wouldn’t shut our borders for those who would travel inwards, out to their stupid holidays, and those who transiting through, in order to please BIG BUSINESS and make money.
You held back on vaccines, you’ve gone and reduced their effectiveness with your penny pinching, You starved the NHS of PPE, drugs, staff, ventilators, and a host of other equipment.
You made kids into super spreaders, and in some cases without parents or elders. You turned the elderly into super spreaders and infect other old people by callously dumping them in those care homes without testing for COVID-19 and starving those homes of the equipment and resources to look after them. You’ve also increased child poverty in every way you could.
You imposed lock-downs that were only notable by their gross ineffectiveness, unfairness, and inadequate policing of them.
You let London and the South East infect most of the UK over Christmas.
You did not close down intercity rail and motorway travel, and buses and internal flights continued.
But faced with questions over how Britain reached one of the world’s worst counts amid the pandemic, the prime minister refused to discuss the reasons it might be so high. (Guardian)
BUT OF COURSE, why or even how can he explain the total failure of HIS Government in putting MONEY BEFORE LIVES.
Experts reacted with dismay and sorrow. “This time last year, it would be almost impossible to believe that a wealthy island nation with a universal healthcare system would go on to have one of the highest death tolls from the emerging coronavirus pandemic,” said Richard Murray, chief executive of the King’s Fund.
“Yet the UK has now passed the grim milestone of 100,000 coronavirus deaths, with many more likely to follow.” (Guardian)
Je vous présente, le morceau de merde,
le Premier ministre Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson.
“L’argent avant la vie”.
MONEY BEFORE LIFE
The UK is at risk of becoming a failed state and breaking up unless there are deep reforms of the way the country is governed, the former (and a disaster on two legs who sold off all the UK’s gold) prime minister Gordon Brown has said.
“I believe the choice is now between a reformed state and a failed state,” Brown wrote in the Daily Telegraph. “It is indeed Scotland where dissatisfaction is so deep that it threatens the end of the United Kingdom.”
I’m probably wrong but most of the Scot dissatisfaction is coming from one person. Nicola Sturgeon.
So, in the interest of saving the UK Gov a lot of money, may I offer two solutions.
Breaking up is an easy one to solve.
Suggest to the sheeple that the UKGov would like to comply with the wishes of the terrorists in Ireland, and the idiots of Scotland’s Assembly.
Tell them that the UK is going to give Northern Ireland to Eire (Southern Ireland) and stop all financial support, welfare, and access to the GBP.
As for Scotland.
Give Scotland full independence.
Remind them that they will lose their access to the GBP, any form of welfare, and don’t expect any foreign aid. That and there will be a hard border between Scotland and England and tariffs on anything passing over that border.
So, what do you think the people of both provinces will do.
Rejoice or put up gallows for their political leadership.
As for the Eire government?
Would they want the financial costs and terrorism boost to their economy? Somehow I think not.
Either way it’s a win-win for the UK economy and would pay for the cost of the wall within a year with all the aid and welfare they saved.
I did say ‘Two solutions’.
And here they are.
Because of the politics of fools OR, is it the fools in politics.
Both ways work.
Rob Halfon, a Conservative backbencher who chairs the powerful Commons Education Committee, has demanded a Minister is summoned to appear before Parliament on Monday.
Speaking to The Guardian he said: “The whole engine of the state must do everything possible to get our schools open after half-term as was originally proposed.
“If it means priority vaccinations for teachers and support staff then it is worth it because despite the efforts of individual teachers and support staff who are doing their best we are facing an epidemic of mental health problems and educational poverty.”
Well congratulations Dick (as in head).
Education didn’t make you very bright did it.
FACT:- Kids contract the virus in school and pass it onto their families.
So this fool wants to reopen these COVID super-spreading classes to do what exactly? I mean apart from Increase the pressure on the NHS and probably kill off a few more parents.
Meanwhile it gets better!
The PM said the Government is “looking at the data as it comes in, looking at the rates of infection” when asked about the easing of restrictions in three weeks time.
Apparently 30,004 new cases and 610 new deaths so far today is sufficient proof that lockdown measures are working well so our pudgy little PM Johnson wants to ease lockdown.
Which makes complete sense (not).
Sort of makes you feel really warm and fuzzy inside knowing that the whole fk’g system of the UK Gov is run by Muppet’s.
BRITISH taxpayers could be slapped with an eye-watering £80million bill over the potential collapse of the Eurostar due to a complex legal agreement that has left the UK exposed to costs. (Ex)
This is all because of La petite merde Macron, and the stupidity of the UK Gov at the time of building the damn thing in the first place! I always said you should never sign something you don’t FULLY understand. Especially if it’s in a foreign language.
Anyway, it’s been a source of trouble for years and recently provided a fast track route in and out of the country for COVID, and Europe’s infected.
Economically, the UK’s freight ferries lost money and the knock on was a loss of jobs, and, even worse, it formed an underwater bridge with FRANCE!
Now there’s a thought!
We were once an island nation and oh boy, do I ever want us to return to that. Cutting ties with the EU never did seem enough for me.
Heathrow Airport and the fiasco of letting people travel and then insisting on a negative PCR test for Covid.
Former British ambassador to Turkey Peter Westmacott wrote: ‘T2 Heathrow Friday afternoon. No ventilation. Long delays. Superspreading.’
Hundreds of returning passengers including children and the elderly were forced to wait for what was quoted of ‘up to two hours’ on social media.
Border Force officers were checking each passenger’s proof of a negative PCR test. The Home Office has insisted that they have ‘the necessary staff’ needed and it is ‘ultimately up to individual airports to ensure social distancing on site’.
Heathrow insisting that ‘social distancing in airport environment isn’t possible’.
IF that is the case, it adds a lot of weight behind my thoughts
that they MUST close down all air travel.
UK seals its border and requires negative COVID-19 tests for arrivals in a bid to keep out ‘vaccine-busting’ variants. (Businessinsider)
From Monday 04h GMT giving the virus variants 72 hours to be walked in unchecked.
To seal SHOULD MEAN no one in or out.
No flights, trains, ferries, Zip, Nada, Nothing.
Only that’s not what will happen.
Everything will run as usual and all you need is a negative test to grant you access.
And yet again, it’s money before lives.
Ain’t that right Johnson!
More than lives!
He’s back on Twitter.
Who is? You’ve got to ask??
Twitter overlooked an account that Trump could gain access to.
As a result he’s back peddling his garbage on
— The White House (@WhiteHouse)
Something tells me Twitter’s newly created kudos with the Democrats has just taken one hell of a knock!
BUT, with a little persuasion, I would imagine it would only take,
half a dozen keystrokes after typing in @WhiteHouse
First came Covid-19
Then the UK variant of Covid-19
Next was the South African Covid-19 Variant
And now the Brazil Covid-19 variant
Boris Johnson says UK border control’s tough measures will halt strain from entering Britain.
I say close all airports. Why?
Because anything the UK Gov does is a bad joke and doomed to failure.
Except I’d forgotten one tiny thing.
And blood on Johnson’s hands
means nothing to him.
