About That 'Electability' Thing....

I don't know where that unfortunate elderly couple from Hither Green are staying but I assume it must be a big place, since the whole of the Tory Party seem to be hiding out there too.

To put it another way, if President Assad really does have chemical weapons, he just needs to store them on an encampment of Loveable Traveling Folk and Theresa May won't go near them.

All of which raises the question: are the Tories motivated by cowardice or just stupidity? Ever since the accession of Fat Dave, Professional Conservatives have justified throwing their principles overboard with patronising lectures about the importance of electability. Now, suddenly there's the political equivalent of a £1,000 note lying on the floor and they're nowhere to be seen.

Are these guys genuinely afraid of losing the votes of the 'pro-home invasion' tendency? Have they become so thoroughly cucked that they're incapable of taking a stand even on the vexed question of whether to support law abiding householders over violent criminals? Or is that they're so far gone into a post-modern death spiral, and so obsessed with focus groups, push polls and microtargeted Facebook ads that they've lost all touch with reality?

Who knows? But at least we can hope to be spared any more lectures about the Very Special Political Genius of Professional Conservatives.

Who, Whom Shall Be The Whole Of The Law

There no better evidence that the two Irish rugby stars accused of rape really are innocent than that the left has chosen to go after them. Look who the left doesn't protest: apparently, it's eminently possible that a thirteen year old girl would consent to group sex with middle-aged sleaze bags but not that a twenty-something would consent to sex with a couple of international athletes.

Yes, indeed: even the age of consent is Islamophobic now.

There's the obvious point that yet again it turns out that this Grrrl Powah! only extends as far as targeting people who won't fire back, but consider the flip side. Consider how Victorian the feminazi position sounds. We're meant to take it as read that no woman would be interested in a couple of professional sportsmen teaming up for a ruck between her posts. Is this feminists talking or Peter Hitchens? Who's buying all those copies of 'Fifty Shades' anyway?

The feminist approach to due process is literally like the old witch trials, either the accused drowns or his failure to drown proves the Patricarchy is keeping him afloat. No one is ever innocent - except the bearded guy ranting about Infidel whores.

SJWs Always Project

As many have pointed out, the left no longer loses elections, instead every single time it turns out they got robbed by a massive, huge conspiracy designed to make them look like out of touch freaks.

Hence why we’ve had nearly two weeks of MSM drones trying to claim that Trump was elected thanks to a small group of brilliant – yet evil – psychological manipulators in the flat bit of England. How likely is it that Cambridge Analytics have the type of deep psychological knowledge that can swing elections? Consider the nature of the supposed whistleblower:
In the words of the Observer’s pink-haired, nerdish whistleblower, former CA employee Christopher Wylie….
You’d think a company full of supposed genius psychologists would spot an obvious kook, huh?

B O’N gets half way there:
These people are so entitled, they were so used to getting in their own way in politics, that as soon as something didn’t go their way they assumed that some massive, powerful, shadowy group must have warped the heads of us, the little people.
But there’s more to it than that: consider the actual scandal of the Nazi pug farce. 

Almost all MSM coverage has concentrated on the question of whether or not it’s actually funny. They take it as given that it’s the government’s role to deal harshly with Felony Unfunny. Barely a single MSM drone will ask if unlicensed comedy is really a serious social ill demanding state action. They just can’t imagine that each and every one of their own petty prejudices should not be enshrined in law.

Hence the meltdown over Brexit and Trump. It’s all projection. They’re convinced that the right will abuse power as badly as the left always does. It may be a good thing overall that the right doesn’t do this, but we ought to at least stop pretending that there's anything reasonable or respectable about the left's position.

Guardians Of The Narrative

Good post by Ace here re: America's allegedly elite media and their passive aggressive attempts to push conspiracy theories. It's all good but this bit struck a chord:
Those who have expressed skepticism about this conspiracy theory have been pilloried -- pilloried by the NeverTrump Smart Set Circle Jerk for a long time.

Jonah Goldberg certainly saw the attacks on Mollie Hemingway.

Why did he never say, "Wait a minute, the Washington Consensus is not agreed that there is any 'there' there, so her opinion, while it could be wrong, is perfectly respectable at this point in time, with this current state of the evidence?"

Seems very strange that the Washington Consensus has known there was no "collusion" for a while now and yet so few members of the Washington Consensus stepped forward to say that skepticism about this was a perfectly reasonable attitude to take.
Hmmmm.... that sounds vaguely familiar.

The MSM is now claiming to be shocked - shocked - by events in Telford. Apparently, the notoriously naive newshounds from Fleet Street were bamboozled by the fast talking big city cops from Shropshire.

The thing is though, plenty of people were reporting on what was going on, Breitbart and Katie Hopkins for two. The MSM wasn't just skeptical about these reports, they were certain that it was outrageously outrageous even to suggest such things could be happening.

They weren't just unconvinced, they were prepared to state affirmatively that anyone who claimed there was systematic sexual abuse by Islamic gangs was a nasty Nazi nutter.

Well, now we know just why people thought there might just be the slightest possibility of Islamists targeting Infidel girls, how about these guys get asked to produce the evidence they used to decide it was all a hoax?

This goes to Ace's larger point. Just as the Washington elite never quite come out and say that they think the Golden Don finishes a tough day's presidenting with a game of chess while drinking vodka and listening to Tchaikovsky, Britain's MSM never get round to saying what they think is *really* going on in places like Shropshire.

Yes, the MSM doesn't believe that there's any connection between Islam and sexual exploitation of Infidels, so what *do* they think is going on? What other possible explanation can there be for how we keep finding gangs consisting entirely of one certain religious group targeting girls from any other religion except their own? And how about these guys answer that one before they get to point and shriek when anyone next mentions the I word?

Privatisation: This Is Why

Our long, dark national nightmare is over:
KFC has returned to its former delivery contractor to supply chicken to 350 of its restaurants after hundreds were forced to close last month. Bidvest Logistics lost its KFC contract to DHL, whose issues with its delivery hub sparked chicken shortages across the country and the vast majority of restaurants shut at one stage.
No doubt the usual suspects will be citing this for the next ten years as an example of the failures of capitalism, before calling for a Central Council for Chicken Products to ensure the public has a constant supply of CCCP approved food.

Never again can this country face the horror of nearly a whole *month* short of fried chicken! We need the type of careful planning and strategy that has made the NHS what it is today....
The heartbroken parents of a two-day-old baby who died after a needless operation today described the horror of their son 'arriving home in a coffin'. Paul Mitchelhill died in his mother's arms following risky abdominal surgery carried out by a doctor who wanted to 'prove a point'
Oops... but at least they moved fast to get to the bottom of it.
Solicitor Lynda Reynolds from law firm Hugh James, who represented the couple, today said: 'The family have endured a long wait for resolution of this tragic matter while GMC and police investigations have been ongoing.
The family have had to not only deal with these terrible events, but have also continued to have to fight for their voice to be heard since newborn Paul passed away in 2013.
Maybe it was complex case and it all came down to a judgement call?
Delivering her verdict, coroner Mrs Dilks said: 'A locum surgeon with responsibilities for Paul's care failed to undertake a thorough analysis of the risks and benefits of the primary closure operation.
'He undertook the operation within the first day of life when no emergency action was indicated and without the knowledge and appropriate discussion with Paul's parents and surgical colleagues.
'He failed to identify abdominal colleague syndrome or give appropriate weight to the concerns expressed by the paediatric intensive team in respect of Paul's condition.
'He failed to undertake timely abdominal surgical decompression. These failings directly contributed to Paul's death.'
Hmmmmm.... it's a complete mystery why no one pulled up this guy..... and .gov is trying its best to keep it that way.
Solicitor Lynda Reynolds [said the parents] were initially refused Legal Aid to fund representation at the inquest and only after an appeal were they granted a 50 per cent contribution towards their legal costs.
'The Legal Aid Agency contends it is 'reasonable' for the family to contribute towards their legal expenses.
'Without specialist representation getting to the truth and understanding what went wrong and achieving some accountability for the loss of loved ones is impossible.
'This is quite apart from the fact that public funds have been used to provide legal representation for the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals Trust'
So they kill off members of the public then use public money to smother any investigation. What a great business model. That's the difference right there. It's not about efficiency. The private sector may be more efficient but that's not the big thing. It's about accountability.

A fried chicken company does a one-eighty in less than a month, meanwhile it takes five years to get the truth about a dead child. Who would you trust not to make the same mistake again?
