The Twattering Classes

meglycinessnipOne of the great joys of writing this feature is that it gives me the chance – without prodding any chests – to have a go at the entire class ruling over us….and thus walk the walk rather than just talk the talk about being politically neutral, and philosophically open-minded.

In that sense, David Schneider – whom I find almost unfailingly funny – offered me the perfect vehicle earlier this week when he put this gem up:


I’d be very surprised if many of Schneider’s eight points above were framed without a serpentine tongue bulging from his cheek like a stereophonic abcess on a decaying wisdom tooth. But if I’vie got him all wrong, then let me deconstruct some of this classic one-quarter baked Leftie ILoveBrussels agitprop in my own inimitably nice manner:

  1. Accepting this opener for what it is – surreal hyperbole masquerading as metaphorical parallel – I cannot recall any Brexit action involving the destruction of a single house, or piss-humiliation of any cats
  2. Nor do I remember anyone accusing Remaindeers of keeping immigrants as pets who might then want my house…..although such attitudes are consonant with UK Left condescension and fantasy respectively. As for deceit, I have kept all the receipts re this one, and would be happy to point up all the absences – from currency destruction to trade slumps and emergency budgets – put out by their allies in the Camerlot tendency
  3. No I wouldn’t: I’d have kept on fighting….but not demanded the democratic result be overturned within 72 hours
  4. No, not seriously….more sort of stoically, gradually and with benign afterthought – rather than malice aforethought
  5. I fully accept that Farage was a complete pillock for conceding defeat at 20:30 on Referendum night. I do not accept any evidence suggesting that he was already moaning about the result. But heh – all links suggesting I’m wrong will be gratefully received rather than just ignored
  6. There was a referendum in 1975 when you were about 18 months old, and I was my lot with my vote. However, I voted FOR continued membership. Then – after thir;ty years of evidence building to show that creeping federalism, anti-democracy, unelected technocratic power, corruption, nasty backstairs deals about euro membership, bent elections and bullying lies about sovereign debts had proved me wrong – I decided to work actively to get us out. You see, this is how we learn: we make mistakes, and then wake up about the mistakes and vow not to repeat them. You?
  7. No – what I do is analyse why we lost, and try to persuade others that the strategy needs to be changed. Instead of moaning about the Tories after 2010, I moaned about how obviously and utterly crap Balls and Miliband were. This evoked tons of ordure, heaped on my head from the ideologically constipated Left.
  8. This last point is a classic of Left assertion, replacing evidence with blamestorming about the poor and vulnerable. The poor were vulnerable long before Brexit became an issue. What have Remaindeers done to help them?

And what seals the obvious irony intended, I think, is this gobsmacker of an ending….in bold of course, because the Left must proclaim:


Aaaahahahahahahahaaaaa. Tolerant, forward-looking, open? Dear oh dear oh dear.

From Left to Right….and this time, something so profoundly nasty, you have to applaud anyone with the nous to spot the bullying involved:


It was bad enough that Benyon had the flying-brick insensitivity to poke fun at the deprived disabled UK community in the first place. But hastily removing the tweet once faced with a Tsunami of disapproval from right across the political spectrum was an act of depraved cowardice scraping the bottom of even the Tory barrel.

“Surely not,” I hear you say, “he just realised his mistake and corrected it”. Er, no: Dick Bentone removed the tweet because, um, the Whips told him to.

That’s hypocrisy, right? Of course it is: but below is an example of something slightly different to hypocrisy. Because this belter is an example of Feminazism so incapable of grasping illogical double-standards, it lacks the wit to hide it….hiding such being, of course, the classic definition of hypocrisy:


Yeh roit sisters, let us not compare our genuine greevunce at the rapist domneerin’ ‘ands of filfy men to the almost omeeopaffic level of the uvva gendah bein’ nagged an’ ‘it an’ that, orn the grouns that it is juss anuvva risbul ploy by the rulin’ misogynist clique to sergest they gotta case, notwivstandin’ Rebekah Brooks knockin’ seven bells of shit art of Ross Kemp when she farned ‘im at it wiv a rent boy the filfy feckin’ perv.

And also, let us try to remember that facts are sacred at The Guardian….and comment is free.

Comment against The Project is forbidden in Brussels, and facts are sacrilegious. So this must be why Jeroan Dijsselbloem had this to say today:


What a hopelessly downward-sloping male member of the species this stream of Dutch canal-water is.

He wants progress on the giant leap forward to create a 3rd World disease-ridden, half-starved vassal from what was formerly a 1st World State and leading tourist destination for travellers the world over.

I am reminded of Dijsselbloem’s inept sociopathy every time I recall this Don McLean lyric about the Vietnam War:

They shot him in the chest/pass the chicken breast/the general is saying that he’s still not impressed

  1. I do this in parts, it is a novel concept but the censor has blocked it.

    Point 8. EU doesn’t have this the guy is an idiot, not even worth a response.

    Try this BREMAIN though, was keeping it but I love to share marvelous concepts, you know be flexible, modern etc. ain’t that right? The UK parliament beihng tired of having to hold the burden of my sovereignty it is too much like hard work although they have already formally signed it over to the EU in the Lisbon Treaty without asking or consent being given.

    Not accepting any future decisions on this neitgher … my voice is not for sale … unless I choose otherwise.

    I ask this question though seeing as I am being forced to cede my voice and thus the sovereignty why should it be to the EU? Just asking like because I am told EU,EU,EU by BREMAIN why not another nation?


  2. BREMAIN listen to this one … I will cede sovereignty but not to the undemocratic EU. If we have another referendum I could cede my sovereignty to Putin and Russia. Well why not, this would not be a crime because the UK sovereignty is going right? So I cannot commit treason we are into ceding sovereignty and I must choose another that might be more representative of the democracy I have.

    You know … voice … vote that carries worth.

    Well, well, well … I choose India … looks remarkably like my own government because it was based on the concept of the UK democracy besides the king / queen bit, but that is only a figurehead anyway.


  3. Sorry about that … I got to admit I am smiling on the lateral concept of why just the EU …

    Trying to figure living in the UK, Non-dom status, my sovereign is then India … I could live with that actually as I have known and met many asian people from India born and bred Leicestershire. What do you think, we go for that? I still get to tell your now a fake UK democracy, true EU dictatorship to get lost because I have not sacrificed what I hold dear

    Just imagine all those non-dom people, pity all those immigrants that came here got enslaved by the EU.

    I wonder where this grammar school conundrum going?
    They have always taken on board the exceptional student raise the schools performance.
    The way key key folk at Bletchley have been ignored is in my opinion
    truly shameful.
    I followed ..via the net .. Tony Sales rescuing the site from the developers!
    Initially it caused considerable panic amongst some… when he found that many of the truly key personnel were still alive. Sales was eventually banned from the site.
    Folk like William Tutte and Tommy Flowers: When he was doing the initial interviews .. Bill Flowers caused some horror because he brilcreamed his slick back hair..also, he was of the habit of dropping his diphthongs!This caused a little bit of horror amongst the girls who cleaned the switches on the bombs ..many ex débutantes … Debs were considered safe security wise. They shoved Tutte in a little room of his own.. best thing to happen because he was able to solve the unsolvable.
    Re Tommy Flowers : The chief in charge rejected his electronics answer to the speed/reliability problem. He had to go Alan Turin who had a direct access to Churchill .. and get him interested.
    I bring this up as both these Tutte and Flowers were ex grammar/high school passes.
    I list bellow a site which has fair coverage of this little bit of history…….


  5. A little notice to the unbearably arrogant Bremainers, who couldn’t cope with the idea that the unelected so-called elite in Brussels might actually get a duffing from the ordinary decent people in the UK.


    The relative educational level of the said ordinary decent people is irrelevant – the senior NCOs in the Army used to say, of some officers, “ten “O”-levels and no common-sense”. Additionally, I have found that a substantial minority of general left-leaners (and teachers in particular) have a very nasty trait of being viciously-intolerant of any opinion other than their own. Witness the foul behaviour of the anti-Trump crowd in the USA. You may or may not like Trump and his shooting-from-the-lip, but his supporters aren’t violent towards others of a differing opinion.

    Oh, and I nearly forgot the hand-wringing; you must never forget the hand-wringing of lefties. When their arguments have utterly failed, they resort to hand-wringing and whining “something must be done”, because it never occurs to them that other people may just wish to be allowed to get on with their own lives without being micromanaged over (for instance) the strength of Vitamin D capsules. Can’t have the non-elite actually keeping themselves healthy without boosting the profits of the pharmaceutical industry, can we now?

  6. This is bizarre. WordPress seems to be acting very strangely. I just tried to add a comment and received the message, “This comment cannot be posted.” I am using Tor to connect to the site, and I wonder if John has inadvertently blocked many Tor nodes in his fight against the trolls.

  7. JW, could you let us know if you are pre-moderating comments, WordPress has rejected a relatively uncontroversial comment multiple times and the criteria does not seem to be the length as I stripped it back to a couple of sentences.

  8. @kfc and iain

    Thank you. Perhaps JW and his commentariat really have incurred the wrath of TPTB. More likely, I suspect that WordPress itself is censoring based on certain key words. It’s not a happy situation as the comment section of this blog is one of the most polite and erudite I have ever discovered and it would be a shame for it to disappear.

  9. Canexpat,

    what JW needs to do is to use software that is not party to the US Patriot Act. This gives access to anything covered by it to the US authorities, who, as you know, have much the same appreciation of freedom as the Berlin government of the late 1930s.

    What JW needs is his own secure and unhackable server… that won’t be easy. However, Tresorit, the Swiss cloud based file storage system has a reward of $50,000 (upped from $10k) for the first person to hack their systems. Not being party to the Patriot Act means they do not have to share their digital access keys with the US government. Dropbox, Microsoft storage, in fact any data stored with a US based company is insecure for the above reason.


  10. It got through first time!

    BTW I do not get a message that the comment could not be posted, I just get the Slog headline. That means the comment has been held for moderation – and on only one occasion, a few days ago, did they actually get through the barbed wire of WordPress’ freedom of speech software.


  11. In some ways simplistically the brexit vote merely confirms what has always been. Britain never signed up to the Schengen agreement and there has never been a free trade in booze and fags to Britain. So much for the free market..
    However the serious side of brexit is that If it ever gains flesh and bones then. we escape:
    -The stifling bureaucracy of a government so corrupt that it has not had an audit since God came out of nappies.
    -The curtailment of our every freedom in petty regulations dreamed up by an army of unaccountable nasty petty little goblins stabled in Brussels
    -A constantly expanding realm of darkness smothering all vestiges of democracy
    -A gravy train for career politicians(eg Kinnocks)
    Within another generation we will all be wearing the EU equivalent of Mao suits and clutching a little euro book of the essential works of Merkel.(many blessings be upon her?)
    This assumes of course that the mp’s follow the will of the people. One arrogant windbag Owen has already stated publicly that he will ignore the referendum result.
    If the people totally ignored mp’s where would we be?
    We live in interesting times!


  12. @Canexpat. If you post a lengthy tribute singing the praises of HRC, and do not, under any circumstances, post an original of the iconic Kim Phuk photograph, you should be O.K. !!!!!


  13. If the EU was good for anything ,there wouldn’t be any poor and vulnerable . Sadly that is not the case and I’m guessing for many,the absolute opposite applies.


  14. Ey up John, just got back from near your neck o’ the woods. Spent an idyllic time near Domme, driving round Cahors to get to Rocamadour.

    I have eaten so many croissants and rich French food I am like a human foie gras.


  15. I am a woman.
    You are a man.
    I went to grammar school.
    You did not.
    I voted in.
    You voted out.

    The list of what divides us is almost endless, and yet, there is always so much more that unites us.
