Winston on cloud nine that democracy isn’t in the hands of the media, the experts or politicians

Winston Peters is in grave danger of having a permanent grin affixed to his face, especially if the wind changes.

New Zealand First leader Winston Peters hailed the Brexit referendum result as “a stunning 24 hours in world politics.”

“There has never been a national referendum in any country where so many outsiders, foreign power brokers, and financial market manipulators have intruded,” Peters during a speech at the Copthorne Hotel in Rotorua on Saturday.

Peters said “expert after expert” had told voters that Doomsday for the British was soon to come if they voted to leave.

“Anyone watching the BBC yesterday saw all these people giving their views and no one went to the working people and asked for their commentary, but suit after suit was talking about working people’s situation,” he said.

The power class are so up themselves they can’t even see the obvious irony of what they are doing. And that phenomena exists in New Zealand as well.

The Poms are looking forward to burning silly EU laws

The Poms are celebrating and realising that they can finally get rid of stupid EU laws that were imposed on them.

As the country reflects in the wake of the EU referendum, Leave voters are celebrating changing the course of history and breaking free from the shackles of the European Union – and its laws and regulations.

Despite the fact Britain has voted in favour of leaving the EU, this is still the start of a long process before the country officially untangles from the network of institutions in Brussels.

And among that network there were a number of bizarre – and some argued trivial – rules the Brussels bureaucracy passed.

Here are some of the more bizarre regulations the Brexiters can enjoy saying goodbye to.

1. Ban on curvy bananas and crooked cucumbers  

The first – and one which reared its head as the Brexit and Remain camps drew up their battles lines – was the banana regulation.

An example often cited as ‘legislative heavy-handedness’ was the EU ban on ‘bendy bananas’ and crooked cucumbers.

A 1994 EU regulation specified that bananas must be ‘free from abnormal curvature.’

EU rules also governed the shape of many other fruits and vegetables — cucumbers, for example, needed to be almost perfectly straight.

Raped by a refugee? don’t ask a Liberal for help

We think of Liberals as being caring and the social conscience of our countries. After all they often describe conservatives as heartless and selfish so they must be the opposite. Liberals are the ones that want to bring in more refugees. They are the ones that want open borders and do not value western culture.When their open door policies have terrible consequences for women and children you would think that they would do all they could to help and protect them. After all aren’t Liberals feminists and don’t they hate the patriarchy? Unfortunately when refugee girls and women are brutally raped by other refugees within Liberal run asylum centres, the Liberal employees in many cases do not want to know. They are suppressing inconvenient truths as they do not want to admit that their big social experiment is having disastrous consequences.

After a 10-year-old girl was raped by a fellow refugee, she went to asylum center employees, only to be given an equally sickening response.

A little girl was lured into a migrant man’s room at an asylum center and brutally raped while her screams for help went ignored. When he was finished, she ran to the liberal worker and told them what had happened. However, instead of calling the police and helping the injured and traumatized child, they had just one concern.

Will the left’s collective heads explode with what the Dalai Lama just said?

It appears that the Dalai Lama is channelling Donald Trump with his comments over illegal immigration to Europe.

James Delingpole writes:

How brave, wonderful and brilliant of the Dalai Lama to have admitted in a newspaper interview that Europe has too many refugees.

It’s even better, almost, than the Queen emerging as a closet Brexit fan.

If Donald Trump had said something like that (as of course he does all the time) half the world would have dismissed him as a malevolent, heartless, rabble-rousing troll.

But it’s much harder to do that with the Dalai Lama. The thing he’s famous for more than anything is really, really caring about stuff – the world’s poor and oppressed especially.

If you were to ask Benedict Cumberbatch or Juliet Stevenson or Kate Moss’s nearly-father-in-law Richard Curtis  or any of the other numerous members of the Wankerati who want to welcome more refugees into Europe what they thought of the Dalai Lama I can guarantee they’d have nothing but kind words to say.   Read more »

The Krauts are revolting

The Krauts are revolting against Angela Merkel’s continued support for the wog invasion.

A pig’s head bearing a written insult against German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been found outside her constituency office.

Police declined to provide further details about the insult when contacted by Reuters, saying an investigation had been launched in the northeastern town of Stralsund on Saturday.

Ms Merkel’s popularity has waned due to her liberal migrant policy.   Read more »

Great sledge from Boris

Boris Johnson is sledging out David Cameron easily.

Boris Johnson’s dispute with David Cameron over the EU deepened on Friday night after he called the Prime Minister and his allies the “Gerald Ratners of modern politics”.

In a major speech to mark the opening day of EU referendum campaigning, Mr Johnson accused Mr Cameron and his colleagues of pretending to be a eurosceptics despite “loving the idea of a federal Europe” and said that they do not have a “shred of idealism”.

But television viewers watching events in Manchester were treated to bizarre scenes as the London mayor demanded that a reporter stop broadcasting on-air from the back of the auditorium.   Read more »

Has Europe abolished itself?

Angela Merkel is being blamed for the demise of Europe:

A combination of Islamist terror and badly designed migration policy is going to destroy Europe, claims a Swiss member of parliament who said Angela Merkel and Islam are to blame.

The comments by Swiss People’s Party (SVP) member of parliament Roger Köppel are just the latest by a high profile European politician on the demise of the continent. His remarks, which appeared in his own Weltwoche daily newspaper could not have been clearer, when Mr. Köppel remarked on Europe’s growing instability: “The German refugee policy could trigger a new world war”.

Comparing the “megalomaniac, we can do it” mentality  of Angela Merkel and others to Europe on the eve of the First World War, the editorial foresaw a situation where millions of ordinary Europeans would pay dearly for a situation manufactured by their leaders. Those in charge would now, as then, not have to pay for their mistakes at all.

Writing in the newspaper of which he is editor-in-chief, the parliamentarian wrote: “The basic problem today is Islam… The attacks in Paris and Brussels are acute symptoms of an incorrect, sick immigration policy.” Criticising the infiltration of “death-seeking fanatics and madmen”, Mr. Köppel said “Islam endangers the survival of our civilisation”.

Phew no more lone wolf attacks…oh wait!

Lone wolf attacks are a thing of the past…because Daesh is moving to bigger and worse attacks.

The Brussels bombings have made it plain that the scale of the threat posed by the Islamic State to the West is far larger than most Westerners had previously thought. That threat is no longer limited to the radicalization of the approximately 5,000 European citizens who left the comfort and safety of their homes to fight alongside the Islamic State in Syria, Iraq and, more recently, Libya. Nor has it only expanded to include so-called “lone-wolf” plots — self-organized attacks carried out by homegrown radicals. The Brussels bombings have made it painfully clear that the Islamic State is determined to plan and direct attacks in the West that are far more sophisticated and lethal than such small-scale mayhem.

It would be understandable if the public expressed anxiety and dismay about this metastasized danger. But the West’s counterterrorism officials are not entitled to feel surprise. For anyone paying close enough attention, the Islamic State’s expanded capabilities have been evident for well over a year.

And people like me who warned about this were called Islamophobic, scare-mongerers, intolerant and racist…except we were right.

After the U.S.-led coalition began launching airstrikes against Islamic State targets in August 2014, the group’s spokesman, Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, responded with a call for supporters to carry out lone-offender terrorist attacks targeting the West.

If you can kill a disbelieving American or European — especially the spiteful and filthy French — or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be.

Since then, Islamic State supporters and sympathizers have tried to answer his call. The January 2015 attacks in Paris on the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a kosher grocery store caused some confusion because some operatives appeared to be tied to al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), while others were inspired by the Islamic State. Looking back, however, it appears that these terrorist “frenemies” (the groups they respectively affiliated themselves with were fighting one another in a jihadi civil war back in Syria) were still part of the lone-offender phenomenon. They may have been inspired by groups based in the Middle East, but they were not directed by them.

Europe shutting up shop

It seems the Greeks, at least, have worked out they have a problem and the borders are now going to be policed, hard.

Migrants were given a one-day deadline to reach Europe as leaders announced anyone landing in Greece after midnight on Saturday would be swiftly deported.

A deadly scramble for the last boats over the Aegean to the Greek islands began after a €6 billion (£2.3 billion) aid-for-deportations deal with Turkey was agreed in Brussels.

Turkish police on Friday intercepted 3,000 migrants attempting to cross on land and sea in a major operation involving coast guard and helicopters, as Ankara at last showed a willingness to halt the human tide.

From Sunday morning, any asylum seeker who lands on the holiday islands including Kos, Lesbos and Chios with no longer be able to catch ferries to Athens, but will be swiftly interviewed by asylum officials or judges at new detention camps.   Read more »
