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.
