No, no, don't panic, I'm not about to drop dead (famous last words, perhaps?), or 'do a runner' (walking I can do, running I cannot!). Actually, I'm off to spend the weekend with SoD - yeeeeeeeees, quite, and if he so much as mentions Brexit I'll send him to his room just like I used to do 'back in the... Continue reading

Then you prove yourself a fool, DA, because no one but a fool would believe a word Trump says until it happens.
Well, Peter, she made one big, nay, HUGE promise - “I also will not add a penny to the debt.” Believe that one, do you?
I read 'The Kraut's' offering this morning and wondered if you would comment on it. I was not disappointed. So, the fact that a candidate for the Presidency of the United States has no clear, articulated aims and objectives, let alone a guiding ideology is the fault of, er, well, Paul Ryan, actually! You mean it has nothing to do with Mrs. Clinton's *self-confessed* tendency to say one thing but do another? No, no, no, this practice of political charlatans through the ages to keep the suckers, ooops, sorry, I mean the voters in the dark is, in her case ... wait for it ... "an unfolding of mere honesty"! Oh, thank you, thank you, I have giggled many a time and oft' at this blog but that reduced me to helpless laughter!
Like everyone 'over here' I thought American politics had reached an historical low-point when Donald Trump challenged Mrs. Clinton to a duel but being a true gentleman at heart he deliberately fired and missed. Mrs. Clinton, on the other hand, didn't hesitate and shot him in the stomach before walking off and leaving him to die. A few days later... Continue reading

Verily hath it been said, well, by me, at any rate, that you will never go broke under-estimating the stupidity, malignancy and inbred detestation of all things British by our, er, 'EU partners'. Mind you, usually that only lasts until some power-mad European like Hitler, or the Kaiser, or Bonaparte, or Louis IV, decides to take over the entire continent... Continue reading

Not quite, DA. I was raised by a family who were strangers to me as an evacuee from the London blitz and that was five years before we, er, enjoyed the 'blessings of socialism'. Those 'blessings' lasted about 25 years when life became so intolerable we voted in 'that woman' who gave it a good kicking!

"a fiscally conscious socialist" As rare as the mythical snowball in hell!

Further to my grump immediately below on the subject of all that junk we keep dumping on Mars, why am I not surprised that this morning all those boffins are sitting around in the super-duper and eye-weepingly expensive 'control centre'(!) sobbing into their coffee cups because their 'baby' will not talk to them! Their 'baby', of course, is the very... Continue reading

And did he invite them, like Mr. Creamer, to tea and scones at the White House on a regular basis, too?
"A professor"! Oh well, that settles the matter then!
Peter, your obfuscations are pointless! Can you make a really big effort and stick to the case in point, ie, Mr. Robert Creamer, convicted fraudster and regular visitor to the White House and a big pal of 'Ol Big Ears'.
Perhaps, Anne, you should ask the AG of Texas and the citizens of Tarrant county: Of course, I do understand that 'down there' they 'do thangs differently'!
I see! Silly me, you're trying to tell me that the POTUS is normally in the habit of giving personal time to a Bank fraudster who served nearly six months in the slammer. I must remind 'Her Maj' to count the silver the next time Obama and co pay a visit to 'Buck House'!
If it's a dodgy video, then why did Creamer resign?
“remember, James O’Keefe is a felon.” Quite so, DA, but so is Creamer! And in light of that, what was he doing visiting the White House 340 times, and meeting 'Ol Big Ears' personally 45 times? Jest askin'!
Sorry, forgot to add the link:
Voter fraud? Rigged elections? Perish the thought! 'Still 'n' all', as that 'Tyler Durden' (who is a very naughty boy!) asks today: "Earlier today we wrote about a new Project Veritas undercover video that uncovered several democratic operatives openly discussing, in explicit detail, how to commit massive voter fraud. One of the operatives was a person by the name of Robert Creamer who is a co-founder of a democratic consulting firm called Democracy Partners. Within the video, an undercover journalist details a plan to register Hispanic voters illegally by having them work as contractors, to which Creamer can be heard offering support saying that “there are a couple of organizations that that’s their big trick"" Mr. 'Durden' continues: "Unfortunately, the embarrassing video caused Creamer to subsequently resign from consulting the Hillary campaign as he issued a statement saying that he was "stepping back from my responsibilities working the [Hillary] campaign" over fears that his continued assistance would be a distraction for the campaign. But voter fraud isn't Creamer's only criminal specialty. A quick look at Wikipedia reveals that Creamer spent 5 months in federal prison back in 2006 for a "$2.3 million bank fraud in relation to his operation of public interest groups in the 1990s."" But then another question arises: "So, with that kind of history, you can imagine our surprise when we discovered that a Mr. Robert Creamer showed up on the White House visitor logs 340 times beginning in 2009 when Obama took office and culminating with his latest visit in June 2016. Moreover, in 45 of those instances, Creamer was scheduled to meet with POTUS himself. Perhaps this is just two old Chicago "community organizers" hanging out?" Of course, nothing to see here, move along! Still, 'Creamer', what a very appropriate name!
This morning I woke up to some boffin getting tremendously excited about another squillion-zillion quids worth of junk metal hitting planet Mars. Let's face it, if we leave much more scrap iron lying around on that misbegotten planet the Greenies (and I don't mean the local inhabitants - if there are any!) are going to kick off with demonstrations and...

So, DA and Ann and Peter, faced with that imminent threat from 'un-American, irredeemable Deplorables', what do you intend to do when 'HillBilly' marches into the White House? What will be your pogrom, ooops, sorry, I mean programme?
Chicago, Chicago, that toddlin' town Chicago, Chicago, I'll show you around Bet your bottom dollar you lose the blues in Chicago, Chicago, the folks who visit All want to settle down. On state street, that great street, I just want to say, They do things they don't do on Broadway, You'll have the time, the time of your life Bring... Continue reading

Well, what can you expect with all those millions of 'irredeemable, un-American deplorables' polluting the nation? Time for a 'final solution', perhaps?
"O wad some Power the giftie gie us To see oursels as ithers see us! It wad frae mony a blunder free us, An' foolish notion:" Well, thanks for that, 'Rabbie', but an awful lot depends on the nature of the outside observer, and it also assumes that we are incapable of assessing, fairly accurately, what others think of us...

Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm late again but they're worth waiting for, honestly! This first one charmingly shows the sensitive side of Australian men: Three Aussie blokes working up on an outback mobile phone tower: Mongrel, Coot and Bluey. As they start their descent, Coot slips, falls off the tower and is killed instantly. As the ambulance takes the body... Continue reading

The utter detestation, verging on hatred, which drips like acid from this blog, the Democrat leadership in general and HRC in particular (“basket of deplorables”, “irredeemable”, “are not America”) and aimed at a huge swathe of your "fellow Americans" is a cause which will, I fear, have an effect undreamed of in your worst nightmares. "Stick around, kid, you ain't seen nuttin' yet!"
