True, the wooden crosses of the small cemetery of S?p?n?a are vibrantly illustrated with cartoonish depictions of the deceased, but it's not only the best moments of the departed that are preserved, but the tragic as well. Other crosses in the cemetery show car accidents and a drunk with the foreboding skeleton of addiction reaching towards him from down below.

Apparently bludging foreign ratbags don’t actually exist

In the UK at the moment there is outrage about bludging foreign ratbags, but it appears it is a false assumption that hordes of gypos and wogs are descending on Western Europe on the bludge looking for good times at the taxpayers expense.

From London to Berlin, the tabloids and right-wing press whipped themselves into a xenophobic frenzy as the end of 2013 neared. They warned of “swarms of immigrants,” “soaring crime rates,” a “swamped labor market,” and “benefit tourism.” Even government officials got in on the?action: Lodewijk Asscher, the Dutch social affairs minister, issued a?“Code Orange”?alert — a warning normally issued in the Netherlands, a country prone to flooding, when water levels reach dangerous heights. In the United Kingdom, there was talk of introducing “Olympic-style security” at airports. French President Fran?ois Hollande and his Socialist government called for a “crackdown.”

The cause of all the panic: On Jan. 1, 2014,?migration restrictions?imposed on Romania and Bulgaria by several Western European countries ended. After the two eastern states joined the European Union (E.U.) in 2007, these rules placed substantial limitations on the ability of Romanians and Bulgarians to emigrate for the purposes of work to Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Malta, the Netherlands, Luxemburg, Spain, and the United Kingdom.?

More Wogistanis doing stuff to piss off Prosser

To quote Darryl Kerrigan, what is it with wogs? Here are more Wogistanis doing dodgy stuff in?the?UK. No wonder Richard Prosser is angry with Wogs.

A partner in a law firm has been jailed for a ?20 million ?industrial scale? immigration scam that saw about five sham marriages carried out a day over many years.

Tevfick Souleiman ran a “conveyor belt” of brides being flown in from eastern European countries, who would marry men they had never met from non-EU countries and be flown out the next day after being paid by the firm.? Read more »
