By George and all the Saints, the Jerries are in the shit and the PIIGS are sitting pretty in the straw! Who'da thunk it? ... The interesting point, however, is this. It [Germany] is starting to underperform the Mediterranean economies. Italy, helped by prime minister Mario Draghi’s reforms, and a ton of stimulus money, is doing a lot better.... Continue reading

It's D&N quiz time again! Let's get straight into it! Starter for one: Who said this? ... “…we should recognise that we are dealing with a coupled nonlinear chaotic system, and therefore that the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.” No? A rabid climate change denying fossil fuel company CEO? Me? Well yes, obviously in my case.... Continue reading

Well with those whopping great tax breaks the Don and Sleepy Joe gave ya, I'm sure some of it found its way to the kids and not beer and football? Where's the private childcare stats then? The poorest in America do as well as the rest of the world's richest, and as well as the richest countries of the world's poor ... Even if you're stuck in the bottom 5% of the US income distribution your standard of living is about equal to that of the top 5% of Indians. Even if you're in the bottom 10% your standard of living is about the same as that of the bottom 10% in other rich countries (which, so we are told, care so much more and do so much more) like Sweden and Finland. And when we sweep everything together into some sort of quality of life measure the American poor are better off than the French or German poor. So I'm sure the lickle-wickle kiddy-winkies do alright stateside. I mean, if they didn't, how come they grow up to earn so much and do so well then? Quit ya whining already! SoD
But neither Labour nor the Tory wets ever really grasped why Thatcherism worked. Their attitude to the lady’s economic legacy was like that of savage tribesmen towards an artefact bequeathed by a higher civilization – respectful but uncomprehending. God damn it. What a brilliant one liner that is. And, to be honest, that article is the most important to... Continue reading

330,000 x the prophet Muhammad. And that's just in France ... France's Catholic Church has covered up sexual abuse by clergymen and lay personnel against more than 330,000 children since 1950, according to an explosive investigation released on Tuesday. The church for decades drew "a veil of silence" over "systemic" abuse, even sometimes knowingly putting children in touch with... Continue reading

In addition to the ruinous economics of leaving the SMFFASAR, we can travel back in time to see the political blunder of leaving the EU, kindly supplied by the glorious comedy of the 1970's ... It's been Blighty's time honoured duty to disrupt any hegemony that might develop in continental Europe ever since Blighty existed. Our forefathers now pushing up... Continue reading

The Blue Socialist and Brexit pundits, wriggling and spinning to try and deflect the blame for their mess, turn to blaming each other ... The resounding criticism of their own Blue Socialism ... What’s wrong with this Government? Why is it so passive, veering from crisis to crisis without a strategy, devoid of any meaningful plan? Speak to the... Continue reading

Bob, Blade runner is a film about white man's culture. Have you ever wondered why a replicant would be called "Roy Batty?". I mean, it's not exactly the sort of exotic name sci-fi would normally associate with an advanced synthetic human, is it? Maybe Zed Zillon, C3PO, but "Roy Batty"? Roy Batty is a working class empire soldier. He has... Continue reading

Bloody plagiarism by the Independent! Predicting post-Brexit Blighty to being like the 1970's cataclysm was all written 5 years ago by me here on D&N. These hindsight jockeys really don't cut the mustard ... The kingdom of empty shelves Our legal reps, Messrs Sue, Grabbit & Runne, are on the case. Brexit is the cause of fuel and food...

So the supermarket shelves are empty and there's no fuel in the petrol stations. What did you expect? This is Blue Socialism, FFS! Doin' the do wherever it goes, irrespective of colour, socialism empties the shelves and tank like no other system known to man ...

You can take your pick from any of climate alarmism's propaganda organs currently trying to spin their way out of the catastrophe they have brought to the energy industries of the UK and EU, and knock their blame passing attempts down one by one. Here's one for example ... The spike was caused by a combination of rising carbon... Continue reading

The new "AUKUS" defence pact between Blighty, Uncle Sam and Oz has ruffled some feathers ... One up: France with their loss of a multi-billion diesel subs deal. You know it's bad when the Froggies refuse to go to a freebie cheese and wine party! ... France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian called the announcement a "stab in the... Continue reading

Blighty's inexorable decline and fall lumbers grindingly on under the Blue Socialist autocracy ... IDS's comment sums it all up ... Sir Iain Duncan Smith, the former Tory leader, said: “If we start raising substantial sums of money without a proper solution we end up, if we’re not careful, as a high-tax, high-spend party and the problem not solved.”...

If you boo BLM you are now deemed to be a racist - and that's the Daily Telegraph talking ... Gareth Southgate said the onus is now entirely with Fifa and Uefa to tackle racism as there is "no more" his players can do on the issue after yet more abuse in Hungary. On a night in which Raheem...

Glezza was worried in the comments about it being difficult to bomb Islamists at home. Well, that may be true, but it's also just become a lot easier to bomb the Islamists abroad, because now we're working with them abroad ... US Army General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has said it was “possible” the United... Continue reading

Sleepy Joe just called one of his staffers, a 48 year old black man, "boy" ... Biden is a full-on died-in-the-wool Dem racist. He lost the battle to enslave blacks, lost the battle to segregate them, and now he privileges them merely to garner their votes, while underneath the privilege facade his wool is died the same as it...

If ever the Realpolitik adage "Your enemy's enemy is your friend" needed a real world example it is the opportunity, yes opportunity, that now presents itself in central Asia. Let's raise the telescope to our eye, and through the fog of war scan the enemy's battle line and list their contingents on this field of glory - clockwise from North... Continue reading

I was routed today. Around 500BC, give or take. My Greek Hoplites vs the Persians. It didn't seem possible that anything other than total victory would be the outcome as my glittering phalanxes of bronze clad heroes marched onto the field of glory. I went for the central position. Screw the flanks, punch the centre of the Persian line, shoulder-to-shoulder,... Continue reading

This is probably true, girls are cleverer than boys ... Girls are expected to increase their lead over their male peers in GCSEs, with an expert saying we should “just accept that they are cleverer”. But what an extraordinary thing for a wokie to say "We should just accept that they are cleverer". Would they say, "We should just... Continue reading

Utterly incredible this one ... Posey said that the practice was put in place last year at Mary Lin Elementary School by principal Sharyn Briscoe, who is also Black. Posey explained that Black students were put in two classes with two different teachers, while White students were put in six classes with six different teachers. She found out about...

This picture is sooo irritating isn't it? ... Why are the people black / brown? It's the same in nearly all of the google images of the same cheesy depiction ... It's so patronising, blatantly racist in fact. It's saying "Black and brown people need Equity, not anyone else". Equity is not privilege. It's not something that's granted on... Continue reading

A good read on the motivations of Ping-a-Ling and the Han crew in and around the borders of China - roves across the surface of all motivations, even tectonic plates! ... The timeless Putin-esque formula: export Han peeps into states to gain majorities, think buffer zones, spheres of influence. One wonders if enticing them into Afghanistan might be a...

And now we see the end game. The pincer movements of woke, BLM, Antifa, and Greta and the Green Blob turn from their distracting flank manoeuvres to converge on the central position of the free world. It was never about winkies, fannies, skin or carbon, they were just a long, grinding, softening up bombardment and encirclement strategy, leading ultimately to... Continue reading
