Latest Scores From The Rainbow Nation Challenge Cup


Not jailed.

Apparently, the left's new slogan is 'Prison Works (Terms & Conditions Apply)'.

On the plus side, at least there wasn't a racial aspect to the Brixton shooting.
Supporters gathered outside the shop to jeer the emergency services. As paramedics fought to save her, one even asked a policeman why they were bothering as the victim was 'just a Paki'.
Dang! Guess we'll have to push back completion date for the Rainbow Utopia again. Doubtless, our Nation's Witch Finder General Trevor Philips will be along to speak out about this any time now....

Reality Is Reactionary

We haven't had some Steyn for a while, so here he is getting to the heart of the matter:
Let's take it as read that Rick Santorum is weird. After all, he believes in the sanctity of life, the primacy of the family, the traditional socio-religious understanding of a transcendent purpose to human existence. Once upon a time, back in the mists of, ooh, the mid–20th century, all these things were, if not entirely universal, sufficiently mainstream as to be barely worthy of discussion. Now they're not. Isn't the fact that conventional morality is now "weird" itself deeply weird? The instant weirdification of ideas taken for granted for millennia is surely mega-weird — unless you think that our generation is possessed of wisdom unique to human history. In which case, why are we broke?
Or, indeed, why is the education system collapsing, the crime rate skyrocketing or the myriad other things going south at a rate of knots?

In many ways liberal social policy is like a real life version of one of the UEAs dodgy climate models, where whatever you plug into it, the Earth turns into ball of fire. We're not supposed to notice that the Earth remains stubbornly inhabitable, just like we're not supposed to notice that increasingly large parts of our cities aren't. If there was as much evidence of carbon emissions damaging the global environment as there is of liberalism damaging the social environment, conservatives would be riding to work on Raleighs. Meanwhile, liberals climb atop the rubble and insist that they're the Smartest People In The Room, and anyone who disagrees is some kind of creepy wierdo.

If They Really Wanted To Offend People, They Should Have Dressed As Real Scientists

It's outrageously outrageous!

No wonder they got in trouble. They clearly don't know what's expected of them at the UEA. They should have waited until they won one match then called themselves league champions, since if you extrapolate from that result across the whole season, they were clearly unbeatable.

Equally, if they did lose any games, they could just replace their results with those of the football team to hide the decline in performance. Then they could conspire with other teams to get anyone who beat them thrown out of the league, all that while claiming that league games are the only true test of skill.

If anyone questioned their claims, they could just say the sheet with the results had been accidentally thrown away, then delete any remaining copies.

Meanwhile, some of us are asking why we should trust folks at the UEA to predict the weather a hundred years from now when they can't even predict that a fancy dress party for student rugby players would turn out to a huge drunken blow-out?

Rainbow Nation Postponed Again

Like I keep saying, you can cut a deal with the Left, but they won't respect you in the morning. Now here's the ultimate proof.

The old line says that the most commonly heard phrase at Labour conferences is 'And what do you teach?', but now even the German Department is unter dem bus.

My favourite bit was the complaint that too many teachers were monolingual. Hey, the authors could be Welsh Nationalists, but I'm guessing it's the fact English people keep speaking English in England that offends them. Apparently, expecting pupils to learn our official language as part of their education is raycist. Think of it as the Dr Strangelove Rule: gentlemen, gentlemen, you can't learn stuff here, this a school.

Mind you, the use of the phrase 'little discussion of issues surrounding ethnicity' deserves some kind of award for chutzpah above and beyond the call of duty. That's the only thing half these losers will discuss.

On the plus side, at least the following quote kills the myth that professional leftists are a bunch of creepy, fascist weirdos:
Give the remaining white middle class teachers a very large dose of equality training and make it regular and continuous in case they lapse into their old blinkered ways.
Hmmm.... anyone know if a senior academic fantasising about forcing women to take part in humiliating rituals in an attempt to produce brain-washed drones is better or worse than calling a slut a 'slut'?

Really, we need to know, but until then enjoy the spectacle of another part of the Left's Grand Coalition falling apart. The white men have already been driven out of teaching, but Utopia still haven't arrived. Clearly the answer is even more quotas and victimhood.

This Is Why Your Taxes Are Going Up

Yes, it's true: Austerity Britain is paying people to count the stick figures in exam questions.

On the plus side, there may yet come a day when it's quite normal for patients to be seen by an Indian doctor.

Actually, this is a rare PC double: while they're dealing with the non-existent problem of Sikh under-achievement, they're also deflecting pressure to deal with the - actual, real - problem of male under-achievement. Boys aren't failing in schools becuase of lack of representation in exam questions any more than Tehran is Judenfrei becuase of a shortage of kosher delis.

Question D'Jour

Deliberate or not? An almost textbook example of the Men of No Appearance school of reporting is unfortunatly marred by the revelation that these mysterious 'youths' were shouting 'get the whities'.

Dang! Don't you just hate it when that happens?

Confirmed: Supporting The Dave Causes Insanity

Really: the cognitive dissonance on show here is a sight to behold.

To be fair though, full credit to QL for grasping something that passes most Professional Conservatives by: the left uses these quangos to push through stuff they would never dare bring up where the public would have a chance to vote against it. The only problem is that saying all that just rams home the contrast between a bunch of liberal wackadoodles using taxpayers' money to help wreck the country, and a supposed Conservative Party that's looking very strongly at moving towards putting in place mechanisms to consider the possible implementation of policies to potentially restrict the ability of said wackadoodles to give a shedload of cash to the Mohammed Siddiq Khan Memorial Scholarship Fund.

New Cameron Statement: 'I Did Not Have Sex With That Horse, Miss Raisa'

Hey, why not? After a week of ever-changing stories plus his desperate desire to be seen taking on mostly mythical right-wing extremists, who'd bet against him announcing he was involved in a stable relationship?

There's the obvious point that this last week of farce proves yet again that, no, The Dave is not a political genius, but it also exposes another myth. The Dave isn't a victim of inverted snobbery any more than Diane Abbot is a victim of racism. Forget the specifics, consider the general point: The Dave arranged for a public body to supply some pals of his with public resources, then made use of them himself. That'd still be corrupt even if he was scoring free tickets for the dog track or cans of Special Brew.

Apparently, we misheard: he actually said he was the heir to Cherie Blair.

His problem isn't that he looks like a toff, it's that he looks like what he is: an entitled brat who treats the nation's resources like his own toy box. Compared to giving foreign aid to Argentina or destroying the Libyan government with no idea what to replace it with, using the Met as his own personal stable probably counts as letting Britain off lightly.
