On Second Thoughts....

That Opening Ceremony, huh?

A filthy rich liberal takes a bunch of cash off of ordinary people and uses it to tell them they suck, and the left want to fire anyone who points that out.

Actually, that sounds like a pretty good representation of modern Britain. All it needed to seal the deal was a helicopter to fly in at the end and whisk the celebs off to the Heathrow and the next flight to LA.

Socialism: The Hate That Dare Not Speak Its Name

Liberals are enragedly enraged! that some folks on the right aren't thrilled about an Olympic opening ceremony worthy of Team America's Kim Jong Il.

Why you got be such a square-oh!

Hmmm... let's wind the tape back a month or so.

Ah yes.

Back then, not being swept up in a national celebration, even as meticulously an unpolitical one as the Jubilee, was a perfectly valid position to take. It's only now that the left has decided that the true meaning of Britishness is mindless obedience to authority.

All of which neatly brings me on to His Magnificence Sultan Dave. We're supposed to be shocked that he's set the dogs on an MP that's come out against the left's hijacking of the Olympics ceremony. And?

It's the perfect summation of what two years of Cameronism has wrought. Which is to say nothing. They 'cut too far, and too fast' except socialist weasels like Danny Boyle are still using public money to celebrate their hatred of this country. In so far as the opening ceremony was a clunkingly obvious celebration of collectivism, the only real winner of the whole farce is Nigel Farage.

Tory MPs: Will Grovel For Dinner Party Invites

Who'd have thunk it? Stacking the benches full of Metropolitan luvvies is no way to win a culture war.

Actually, it's even worse than lefty Hodge realises. These people never have any qualms about attacking the right. All bets are off when the target is, say, UKIP. All of which proves that these people have no problem with putting the boot in per se, it's just they lack the courage to do it when that might result in a sneery article from their fellow elitists at the Guardian.

Don't Mention The...

He's a 'French' athlete, doncha'know?

Thatcher Destroyed The Nostalgia Industry

He's right about this, but it goes even deeper.

We keep getting told that the right needs to move on from Thatcherism (meaning: actual conservatism) but it's always from people who insist that the nothing that's happened since 1948 should in any way impact on the structure of the NHS, the War on Poverty is always within measurable distance of its end and all British industry really needs is the return of Fred Kite. When are the left going to move on from the Attlee years?

Government Faces Up To The Kebab Menace

As far as this goes, three things come to mind:

i/ I'll believe it when I see it

ii/Does he mean 'closed' in the traditional sense of 'not open' or in the modern sense of 'wide open providing you keep lodging super, special, emergency appeals against deportation for the next fifty years'?

iii/ Greece? Really? This is what's finally convinced him of the need for border security? There's not much to say about Athens, but it sure beats Mogadishu.

Mind you, sleazy and self-serving though the Nu Tories may be, when it comes to stupid, you can't beat the left:
Denis MacShane, the former Labour Europe minister, was among those who criticised Mrs May when the suggestion of border controls was first raised...

“And of course, if we ban every Greek from coming into Britain, the Greeks will ban every Brit from going into Greece – that's a great start to the holiday season
... although in fairness to McShameless, it's probably difficult to distinguish between welfare tourists and the real thing when you can't even tell the diffference between an office and a garage.

You Can't Fix Crazy

The real lesson of this is summed up by the commentor who says that it really should mark the end of any attempts to not offend these loons.

Me, I think of it like the old Charles Atlas adverts, where the big bully kicks sand into the face of the seven-stone weakling.... except with liberals following on behind the bully loudly claiming that the weedy guy was obviously provoking him.
