London is not easily bowed. A calm, quiet order prevails.

I had the misfortune of reading yet another dishonest and misleading AP article about the status of EEA nationals in the United Kingdom post-liberation. Were the tone not so predictable I’d almost laugh. These articles usually have a few stock characters fearing for their futures. That the British government has already committed to securing a permanent legal status for them is entirely irrelevant. Nor is it seemingly relevant that the British government has proposed new laws to allow EEA nationals to move to the United Kingdom with a job offer with the explicit understanding that they will not qualify for benefit.

Tartan Knickers in a Twist

As soon as this evening the Lords might accept the inevitable and send the Government’s Brexit Bill to Her Maj for the royal assent. Which is a good thing. For the next two years the British government, the governments of European states and the EU will have to hammer out the details of the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union — uncharted waters.

Emu

Some of you might recall that I despise the Waffling Wanker of Wentworth.  In less salubrious terms, he is referred to as “Malcolm Turnbull”. WWW, as I shall refer to him henceforth to save time and space, has the unfortunate distinction of making Cameron look like a succès fou in comparison. By synthesising the misplaced metropolitanism of Britain’s much unlamented former prime minister, the integrity of the unutterable T**y  B***r and the pseudo-cosmopolitanism of the vile N**k C***g the WWW has seemingly brought his party to the brink of collapse.

A Troublesome Result

I watched the results of yesterday’s Northern Irish election with some trepidation. For the first time, Unionists no longer hold the majority of seats at Stormont. In fact, the Irish terrorists’ preferred party, er, I mean, Sinn Féin were returned to Stormont with 27 members giving Irish Nationalist parties a total of 39 seats. Unionist parties were returned with 40 members. There has been some talk of an All-Ireland referendum on a united Ireland — Sinn Féin have, predictably, said that the results significantly increase the chances of this. Read more…

The Caviar Bottler

The great abortion that is Holyrood is all abuzz. For the first time, the Scottish “Parliament” is preparing to exercise its semi-independent tax policy. Scottish Labour and the Limp Dims, predictably, couldn’t see an opportunity to put up tax rates they didn’t like. The fragrant Greens were chomping at the bit at the chance to impose a 60pc tax rate on those earning over £150,000 pa. The Scots Tories were quite sensibly arguing that making Scotland an even dearer place to live and do business was probably not the soundest approach to take. Read more…
