Another one dead, two horrifically injured and with psychological damage they will take to the grave. How many more have to die before the penny drops?
As I’m sure you are all aware by now, Tommy Robinson is planning to tour Australia. He has a promoter, venues, dates, everything……….except a visa.
The last time I was in England, I lined up a meeting with Tommy Robinson, but fate, as usual, was against me. Every time there is an Islamic inspired outrage in England, Tommy rushes off to cover it. Not surprisingly, he does a lot of rushing about these days.
Great work, terrible timing. It must feel a bit like being promoted to Captain of the Titanic half way through her maiden voyage. As a former treasurer, you knew that the gigantic debt iceberg was out there in the fog somewhere.
What a day to celebrate! Tommy Robinson walks free from jail, still alive. What a blow to all those intent on destroying our societies and turning our countries into Third World hellholes.
“Hi Harry, do you want to come and meet my mate Jonathon? He reckons he knows how to fix the country.” “No worries Steve, but my car’s running a bit rough and needs looking at.” “That’s OK”, says Steve, “We can drop in on my other mate Macca, and he will have a look at it.”
Dear Pickering Posters, As you know, Larry was only planning to be out of action for a little while. Unfortunately, the best laid plans don’t always come to pass. Larry’s treatment went well but since then he has picked up a rather nasty virus.
What could go wrong? It is an important question that should always be asked before taking important decisions. I spent most of my working life as a pipe welder. The better part of that career was spent in oil refineries and gas plants. We constantly had that question drummed into us. What could go wrong?
Invading a country which is under a dictatorship is hard. There are no easy options, even for a tin pot Third World stink hole like North Korea. “Never get involved in a land war in Asia,” said the bruised and battered Generals. “Bring it on,” said George Dubya Bush.
I came across a cartoon online. I thought it was very powerful and very persuasive. I also thought it was very wrong on a number of levels. The cartoon has two people in it. One is a woman who is a Christian. I’ll call her Mary for convenience. Then we have a man who is an atheist. Again, for convenience, I’ll call him David.
Dear Pickering Posters, As you all know, Larry is old school. The last thing he wants to do is to burden you all with his medical problems. However, since some of you have indicated a heartfelt concern for his welfare, he has asked me to give a quick update.
“I can’t meet you in my town,” he said in his email. “We can meet up in a little town nearby and have a coffee. About 10am would be fine.” We’d emailed back and forth a couple of times. He knew I had come all the way from Australia. The day before however, the emails stopped. I was going to London anyway and he was on the way, but he didn’t know that.
He was offered a Knighthood but declined it. He was offered the title of Poet Laureate but declined it. He received a Nobel Prize for Literature (I don’t think he was given a chance to decline that one).
Over the last few years I, like many others, have been concerned about the proliferation of mosques in Australia and around the Western World.
Dear Pickering Posters, First the good news. As usual, rumours of Larry’s death have been greatly exaggerated. He has had some radiation therapy as explained in the previous post and is doing well. He is however, taking some well-earned R and R as the treatment is a little taxing.
I don’t know how it happened. Maybe it was a glitch in the booking system. Maybe the Gods of Air travel decided to finally give me a break. Whatever it was, something totally unexpected happened on a flight back to Brisbane last Tuesday evening.
Have you heard the one about the Irishman who was so stupid that he………. Well, you know the rest. When the Irish first came to England en masse, it was to dig canals and build railways. Most of the new migrants were illiterate bog farmers and the Irish were soon typecast as a bit s.t.u.p.i.d.
The word “Multiculturalism” may be a recent innovation in the English language. The concept however goes back a long way. Multiculturalism is in fact just a rebranded form of tribalism. For most of human existence, tribalism has been the default human condition. We are tribal by nature. If you have any doubts about that fact, then go to an English soccer match, that’s a lesson in anthropology you won’t forget in a hurry.
A couple of weeks ago, an event happened which I suspect may be one of the great milestones of our time. The event, strangely enough, was an interview of an obscure (at the time) Canadian professor by a feminist presenter on Britain’s Channel 4.
Did I ever mention that you should take notice when people change the meaning of words? Changing words may seem like an innocent academic pastime. Don’t be fooled however. This practice can have devastating and unpredictable consequences.
