    They ruled a mess of North American settlements for 300-odd years, a mess of Caribbean islands for a similar period of time, various portions of India for between 90 and 160 years, portions of tropical Africa for 60-odd years, and about 10 other territories of note for periods of time ranging from 30 to 150 years. They never ruled Europe, which had the productive capacity. They haven't attempted to acquire any territory in over a century and they began liquidating their holdings 90 years ago. Ruthless compared to whom?

    People follow their leaders. If you see leaders of England as your leaders, you will follow them.

    WASP culture, formed fully by a Judaizing heresy, conquered the world and slowly led the world to embrace increasing levels of Anglo-Zionism. And now the inherent fruits of its end game are being revealed.

    The English middle and working classes used to take periodic delight that the Brit WASP Elites at least pretended to like them and almost halfway respect them at the same time those same Brit WASP Elites acted to exterminate as much Irish and Scottish culture as possible. Now, the English middle and working classes are going to get the same treatment, with new forms of torture and culturally genocidal policy.

    WASP culture always has been antithetical to the long term interests of the vast majority of the natives of the British Isles, and their descendants around the globe.

    The Anglo-Zionist Empire intends to do to all you white trash (which is all whites not accepted by the WASP Elites. including English-only-speaking Protestants whose ancestry is 100% English) what Cromwell intended to do to Irish Catholics. And the pattern now chosen is to flood your world with millions upon millions more Mohammedans and black Africans while making Jews even richer and more powerful.

    So why do those hormones only work on the native British and civilized immigrant population ?

    The Caribbean and African blacks, Pakis, Arabs and Muslims have been getting more and more violent and aggressive every year since 1960.

    Britain banned guns so the Muslims and blacks now use kitchen knives and acid. Or 6 to 1 beat downs or gasoline and matches or bombs at concerts and busses and subway cars.

    Strange hormones that cause artificial pregnancy of all races of women but cause black and Muslim men to be more and more aggressive.

    How do you explain that?

    It’s the ultra aggression of the immune to hormone water blacks and Muslims that has destroyed Britain. That and the enduring hatred the jumped up middle class British have for the formerly working class British

  5. OT-ish:

    The opening show at a new London theatre, The Troubadour in White City, is to close two months early due to poor ticket sales.

    Sally Cookson’s Peter Pan made its debut at the venue a month ago and had been due to run until 27 October.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-49369972?intlink_from_url=https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment_and_arts&link_location=live-reporting-story

    Hmmm, a new commercial adventure banking on a children’s classic during the school holidays – what could go wrong?

    John Pfumojena plays the title role in the new Peter Pan

    There’s a definite strain in old-school liberalism that treats blacks as permanent adolescents who, with the right amount of care and attention (warm, fuzzy meassges on food packaging, for instance) can be eased and cajoled into normalcy. Little wonder this idea hasn’t found universal support on the Left.

    It may be that White City is both too "out of town" and too vibrant for London theatregoers, a hideously white bunch no matter how many black faces are on the stage.

    It was pretty rough even when BBC Television Centre was there.

    There's a lovely message board where the former inhabitants, now living everywhere except White City, talk about the old days and occasionally mention the new.

    "... walked through Shepherds Bush market where we used to walk to get the bus when I was a teenager. My wife and I were the only white faces throughout the market and we were the only people speaking English"

    People growing up there fifty years later had very different memories of childhood.

    Because defending yourself (and these people don't do Queensbury rules, for a 'fair fight' they recruit as many cousins and uncles as they can muster) will lead to extra charges of "racism" and higher sentences, served in jails where half the inmates are "minority" and the staff are what you get when you save on wages.

    Whereas something like this isn't racist, a word reserved for whites-only.

    "A man has been jailed for 21 years after saying he wanted to “kill English people” before launching a knife rampage across south London. Terrifying footage from the night of the attacks, on January 8, show Samiualahq Akbari attempting to stab an unknown victim in an unprovoked attack after asking where he was from.

    CCTV images showed Akbari lunge towards a victim in a Tesco shop, in Thornton Heath, Croydon, with a huge knife as the man he targeted tried to defend himself. The 32-year-old, of Brigstock Road, Thornton Heath, tried to attack people in a kebab shop, a pub and a Tesco before he was arrested after a police chase.

    Detective Constable Chris Dimmer, of South Area CID, said: “It’s clear that Akbari was malicious in his intention to injure as many people as possible. He specifically sought to identify and target people from a certain nationality and to cause them as much harm as possible.”"

    Fried Chicken as a fast food snack was pretty much unknown in the UK prior to the early 1970s when Kentucky Fried Chicken started off by opening small, franchised, outlets at a few select locations. Believe it or not, in those days it was a rare luxury and treat.

    The traditional British fast food was, of course, ‘fish and chips’ – sold by owner occupied stores, which has largely disappeared.

    In the past two or three decades there has been a vast vast expansion of KFC style clone establishments exclusively run and owned by subcon immigrants. Their clientele are mostly blacks, other subcons and the lowest of low class whites – the pitbull and sportswear brigade.

    Via friends who have recently visited.... The independent fish an' chips places are owned by Pakistanis these days. And for sure the so called chicken shops, meaning greasy, deep fried in disgusting old oil, are owned by Pakistanis. Same as Kennedy Fried Chicken stores are an Afghani niche in the greater NYC region.

    No it hasn't — when I'm in the UK I get fish — cod — and chips about once a week. There are 2 owner occupied non franchised fish and chip shops within a mile. Here.

    The first review as I type...

    I travel each year from Dallas Texas to visit my daughter in Haslemere. I look forward all year to going to Frankie’s for the most amazing fish and chips I have ever tasted. Maybe it’s because I live in Texas and there are no fish and chip shops here but I can tell you every fish in Frankie’s shop is cooked to order and the chips are perfect. Hands down my favorite meal of the holiday. Just love your Fish and Chips Frankie 😍♥️😍

    I had fish and chips in Dingle, Ireland at Harrington's. Probably a relative of mine owns the shop, and I'm sad to say that it was lousy compared to Ivar's in Seattle.

    KFC was high quality in China 20 years ago. The meat was better than any chicken you'll find in the US. American chicken is third rate, unfortunately. Factory chicken farming is a crime against nature and the palate.

    While I wouldn't eat any slop prepared by the devil worshippers, I was not too impressed by native food in the British Isles. Haddock is nothing special, and tartar sauce is a lot better than plain mayo on fried fish, which seems to be the typical condiment in the UK and Ireland.

    Pacific cod is excellent fried with dill flavored batter and accompanied by dill tartar sauce, Idaho russet french fries and cold lager. It's just damn good stuff.

    'Believe it or not, in those days it was a rare luxury and treat.'

    In 1994 after moving house my family had a bargain bucket to celebrate and even then it was seen as something rare.

    Today halal chicken joints have essentially replaced the working mans cafe (the British equivalent of an American diner) and fish and chip shop.

    Fish and chips died out because of overfishing by the European union made it too expensive (previously it had been poor peoples food). Working mans cafes just got displaces by immigrants.

    Halal fried chicken is often rotten meat 'tumbled' with a type of bleach to make it appear fresh and sold at the lowest possible price. It is absoloute garbage... but hey at least it isn't pork amiright?

    It is shit food for people who do not know the joys of pork.

    Halal meat should be banned.
  8. My vague impression from my teen years, from reading fiction written by English authors, was that knife crimes were regarded as being an alien, “continental” type of crime, usually associated with “swarthy” foreigners.

    Now, knife crimes are very common.

    My brother in law is a policeman in the northern city of Bradford, which has a very large Pakistani population. He told me many years ago, that the local youth were not too much problem because they like to fight with their fists and injuries were rarely severe, but that the Pakistani lads liked to fight with knives, which was much more dangerous.

    I believe there is some kind of Pakistani tribal tradition of carrying knives or daggers, and they are certainly manufactured there and exported as a kind of cottage industry, and the blades are often forged with Damascus steel and the handles hewn out of camel bone.

  9. U.K. government tries to fight knife crime with “racist” chicken box campaign

    The British government is facing criticism for a “racist” and “misguided” campaign to prevent knife crime by printing anti-knife slogans on fried chicken boxes. The boxes, hundreds of thousands of which have been sent to restaurants around the country, say “#knifefree” and tell stories of young people who pursued hobbies like music instead of carrying weapons. Critics say the campaign both fails to meaningfully tackle the issue and plays on racist stereotypes.

    Knife crime in England and Wales has risen by 80% since a low point in 2014, according to government figures. The majority of knife crimes take place in London. . .

    “Why is it in chicken shops? Why isn’t it in Pizza Hut? Why isn’t it in McDonald’s?” Courtney Barrett, founder and director of the London-based group Binning Knives Saves Lives, told CBS News. His organization uses “knife amnesty bins” to collect weapons and get them off the streets of London. . . “Knife crime affects everyone. It can happen anytime, anywhere. All races, nationalities, ages, genders are carrying knives,” he said.

    I was working for a large Swiss-American investment bank in London over a decade ago and the COO of our division, a Pakistani whose uncle was some head guy in the Pakistani army, siphoned off a substantial amount of money and invested it in a vast network of fried chicken stores across East London. He was also paying the south african secretary to sleep with him. He was a real piece of work. But you just have to always assume the worst with these guys.

    Before cooking the first batch in the morning, we had to dip a metal indicating rod into the hot oil. It had a disc on the end, which, when it disappeared, indicted how much fresh vegetable shortening you had to hack off from the brick and add to bring it back within spec. Sometimes in a rush, you had to get a machine up and running quickly due to unforseen demand, and this step was neglected. It was quite evident for former KFC cooks whether or not the oil was in spec by the ashphaltic overtones evident on chicken cooked in the old oil. KFC has to be just about the most horribly unhealthy stuff ever devised, cooked in room temperature solid shortening under pressure to seal in the grease, I mean, juices, I mean FLAVOUR, yes, flavour.
    Kinda of risky business for the cooks too, with lots of venting steam and hot oil under pressure. I knew one girl who received very bad burns when the bottom of the machine blew off when some locking pins were forgotten during reassmbly. Nasty. This was in the mid 80s though. The process may have improved somewhat in the interim.

    Galloway did not see any links between the knife crime initiative and Thursday’s stabbing, even if there was an uncomfortable irony about the timing. He claimed yet another incident of this kind was no real surprise to him as “there is no day that passes in London without someone being stabbed.”

    It comes after a 16-year-old boy was knifed to death in an estate near Regent’s Park in London on Monday night. His death marked the 90th murder investigation opened by Scotland Yard this year. Fifteen of the capital’s victims have been teenagers, 14 of whom have been fatally stabbed.

    My vague impression from my teen years, from reading fiction written by English authors, was that knife crimes were regarded as being an alien, "continental" type of crime, usually associated with "swarthy" foreigners. The villain, of usually some unidentified Mediterranean type, or perhaps Eastern European, would pull a knife in a showdown.

    Now, knife crimes are very common.

    U.K. government tries to fight knife crime with "racist" chicken box campaign

    The British government is facing criticism for a "racist" and "misguided" campaign to prevent knife crime by printing anti-knife slogans on fried chicken boxes. The boxes, hundreds of thousands of which have been sent to restaurants around the country, say "#knifefree" and tell stories of young people who pursued hobbies like music instead of carrying weapons. Critics say the campaign both fails to meaningfully tackle the issue and plays on racist stereotypes.

    Knife crime in England and Wales has risen by 80% since a low point in 2014, according to government figures. The majority of knife crimes take place in London. . .

    "Why is it in chicken shops? Why isn't it in Pizza Hut? Why isn't it in McDonald's?" Courtney Barrett, founder and director of the London-based group Binning Knives Saves Lives, told CBS News. His organization uses "knife amnesty bins" to collect weapons and get them off the streets of London. . . "Knife crime affects everyone. It can happen anytime, anywhere. All races, nationalities, ages, genders are carrying knives," he said.

    Fried Chicken as a fast food snack was pretty much unknown in the UK prior to the early 1970s when Kentucky Fried Chicken started off by opening small, franchised, outlets at a few select locations. Believe it or not, in those days it was a rare luxury and treat.

    The traditional British fast food was, of course, 'fish and chips' - sold by owner occupied stores, which has largely disappeared.

    In the past two or three decades there has been a vast vast expansion of KFC style clone establishments exclusively run and owned by subcon immigrants. Their clientele are mostly blacks, other subcons and the lowest of low class whites - the pitbull and sportswear brigade.

    Fraid not. Other countries do not take fishing quotas as seriously as Britain does. British mild overfishing has been replaced by Spanish-suck all of the fish out before everyone else gets them overfishing- causing fish stocks to collapse rapidly. The Spanish even have hospital ships for their fleet of fishermen.

The 32-year-old, of Brigstock Road, Thornton Heath, tried to attack people in a kebab shop, a pub and a Tesco before he was arrested after a police chase.

  33. The UK murder rate has gradually drifted up from about 0.8 per 100,000 per month in the late 40s, when UK gun laws were much more lax and there were millions of returning service personnel, many traumatised. It’s now about 1.2 per 100,000 per year, despite an older population, ubiquitous CCTV and a near total gun ban.

    It’s almost certainly down to changing demographics from mass immigration from the sub continent and the Caribbean, and lately pretty much anywhere in the third world. The murder rate trend is likely to continue upwards as the natives are replaced. Currently native Britons are a minority in London, Leicester and Slough, with Birmingham on the cusp. On current projection native Britons will become an overall minority in the UK in the 2060s.

    Mind you, the US rate is over 5 per 100,000 per year and South Africa — where I spend much time — is north of 35, a national murder rate still beaten by a few US cities — the one’s you would predict.

    The problem with fish & chips in North America is that they do fries, not proper thick chips - preferably double fried in beef dripping.

    If you eat at a pub or restaurant (if you don't want to be ripped off in London, a Wetherspoons is your cheap'n'cheerful non-gourmet option - fish, chips, peas and a beer for about $14 - though the clientele may be cheap'n'cheerful too) you'll get tartare sauce.

    I could write a volume on tarter sauce. I had the best house made tarter in a restaurant in an undisclosed location in New England. Tarter sauce must have lots of cucumber pickle cut into it and must be acidy anyway in the general mix from good quality vinegar or lemon. This is easy to analyze. This is acid cutting through the grease/bread crumbs/batter coating on the fish. And enhancing all flavors as the grease vs acid battle it out.

    This X restaurant is the No Name in Boston but this was a while back so...... I cannot say how they make their tarter sauce these days and their cole slaw was off the charts non greasy too.

    WASP culture, formed fully by a Judaizing heresy, conquered the world and slowly led the world to embrace increasing levels of Anglo-Zionism. And now the inherent fruits of its end game are being revealed.

    The English middle and working classes used to take periodic delight that the Brit WASP Elites at least pretended to like them and almost halfway respect them at the same time those same Brit WASP Elites acted to exterminate as much Irish and Scottish culture as possible. Now, the English middle and working classes are going to get the same treatment, with new forms of torture and culturally genocidal policy.

    WASP culture always has been antithetical to the long term interests of the vast majority of the natives of the British Isles, and their descendants around the globe.

    The Anglo-Zionist Empire intends to do to all you white trash (which is all whites not accepted by the WASP Elites. including English-only-speaking Protestants whose ancestry is 100% English) what Cromwell intended to do to Irish Catholics. And the pattern now chosen is to flood your world with millions upon millions more Mohammedans and black Africans while making Jews even richer and more powerful.

    U.K. government tries to fight knife crime with "racist" chicken box campaign

    The British government is facing criticism for a "racist" and "misguided" campaign to prevent knife crime by printing anti-knife slogans on fried chicken boxes. The boxes, hundreds of thousands of which have been sent to restaurants around the country, say "#knifefree" and tell stories of young people who pursued hobbies like music instead of carrying weapons. Critics say the campaign both fails to meaningfully tackle the issue and plays on racist stereotypes.

    Knife crime in England and Wales has risen by 80% since a low point in 2014, according to government figures. The majority of knife crimes take place in London. . .

    "Why is it in chicken shops? Why isn't it in Pizza Hut? Why isn't it in McDonald's?" Courtney Barrett, founder and director of the London-based group Binning Knives Saves Lives, told CBS News. His organization uses "knife amnesty bins" to collect weapons and get them off the streets of London. . . "Knife crime affects everyone. It can happen anytime, anywhere. All races, nationalities, ages, genders are carrying knives," he said.

    Criminals can get guns in any country in the world except Singapore, and to an extent Japan (the Yakuza have them).

    All of Europe and the UK, Eire, everywhere there are fair numbers of old guns that families wisely never turned in, which is why Fiocchi in Italy and other Euro ammo manufacturers make batches of every imaginable obsolete Euro handgun cartridge. The French even made pinfire cartridges until the seventies. Most of this goes to the US or South America and some comes back in packages to the old country, where ammo is tightly controlled.

    I'm told that in England handguns illegally bring a lot of money and so criminals tend not to brandish them, but no self respecting serious criminal lack access to one if he feels he really needs it. They are good at hiding them.

    Few come from US troops stationed there, though: eastern Europe and the Middle East seem the sources. 9mm is far and away the preferred chambering for ammo availability reasons. Euro militaries are big on 9mm SMGs so there is a lot of ammo around and accounting for it is tough.

    Fried Chicken as a fast food snack was pretty much unknown in the UK prior to the early 1970s when Kentucky Fried Chicken started off by opening small, franchised, outlets at a few select locations. Believe it or not, in those days it was a rare luxury and treat.

    The traditional British fast food was, of course, 'fish and chips' - sold by owner occupied stores, which has largely disappeared.

    In the past two or three decades there has been a vast vast expansion of KFC style clone establishments exclusively run and owned by subcon immigrants. Their clientele are mostly blacks, other subcons and the lowest of low class whites - the pitbull and sportswear brigade.

    The Colonel (I’m pronouncing it in my head like Corporal LeBeau does!) has made major inroads in China, and lately I’ve been noting him all around Europe too. McDonald’s is still tops for opening “stores” all over the world, but KFC is way more ubiquitous than say, BK or Wendy’s or what-have-you.

    It's actually found all around the Mediterranean wherever fish meets olive oil, going back to Roman times.

    The Portuguese also taught the Japanese how to fry fish in oil which the Japanese called Tempura from a Latin liturgical term quatuor anni tempora ( the four seasons of the year) or tempora for short. During each of the quatuor anni tempora, there were 3 days on which you were not supposed to consume meat according to the Church and so might have fried fish instead.

    Via friends who have recently visited.... The independent fish an' chips places are owned by Pakistanis these days. And for sure the so called chicken shops, meaning greasy, deep fried in disgusting old oil, are owned by Pakistanis. Same as Kennedy Fried Chicken stores are an Afghani niche in the greater NYC region.
    If I lived in UK it would take a lot (like a thousand dollar cash payment) for me to eat such fried swill from a Muslim owned store, yes I am prejudiced. Though I'd like to try the Korean version of fried chicken but have not had a chance.

    Before cooking the first batch in the morning, we had to dip a metal indicating rod into the hot oil. It had a disc on the end, which, when it disappeared, indicted how much fresh vegetable shortening you had to hack off from the brick and add to bring it back within spec. Sometimes in a rush, you had to get a machine up and running quickly due to unforseen demand, and this step was neglected. It was quite evident for former KFC cooks whether or not the oil was in spec by the ashphaltic overtones evident on chicken cooked in the old oil. KFC has to be just about the most horribly unhealthy stuff ever devised, cooked in room temperature solid shortening under pressure to seal in the grease, I mean, juices, I mean FLAVOUR, yes, flavour.
    Kinda of risky business for the cooks too, with lots of venting steam and hot oil under pressure. I knew one girl who received very bad burns when the bottom of the machine blew off when some locking pins were forgotten during reassmbly. Nasty. This was in the mid 80s though. The process may have improved somewhat in the interim.

    In Newfoundland, fish and chips would often be served with a nice thick gravy mixed with bread crumbs, onions and savoury, which we called dressing. Home made fish would also often be served with crispy cubes of fried pork fat about the size of green peas, called scrunchions. Horribly unhealthy but tasty as hell. Probably not too bad for you when your day consisted of rowing a dory around the North Atlantic and hand lining fish for 12hrs a day, but slow death for a modern man.

    Hard to find good fish and chips there since the utter collapse of the cod stocks in 1992. Most of it comes in frozen, resulting in a battered mush instead of the wonderful flakey delicacy it should be.

    I realize readers of the article will ask "How much more will the Brits take?" The answer could be a lot more.

    So why do those hormones only work on the native British and civilized immigrant population ?

    The Caribbean and African blacks, Pakis, Arabs and Muslims have been getting more and more violent and aggressive every year since 1960.

    Britain banned guns so the Muslims and blacks now use kitchen knives and acid. Or 6 to 1 beat downs or gasoline and matches or bombs at concerts and busses and subway cars.

    Strange hormones that cause artificial pregnancy of all races of women but cause black and Muslim men to be more and more aggressive.

    How do you explain that?

    It’s the ultra aggression of the immune to hormone water blacks and Muslims that has destroyed Britain. That and the enduring hatred the jumped up middle class British have for the formerly working class British

    My vague impression from my teen years, from reading fiction written by English authors, was that knife crimes were regarded as being an alien, "continental" type of crime, usually associated with "swarthy" foreigners. The villain, of usually some unidentified Mediterranean type, or perhaps Eastern European, would pull a knife in a showdown.

    Now, knife crimes are very common.

    I wonder what changed in England?

    My brother in law is a policeman in the northern city of Bradford, which has a very large Pakistani population. He told me many years ago, that the local youth were not too much problem because they like to fight with their fists and injuries were rarely severe, but that the Pakistani lads liked to fight with knives, which was much more dangerous.

    I believe there is some kind of Pakistani tribal tradition of carrying knives or daggers, and they are certainly manufactured there and exported as a kind of cottage industry, and the blades are often forged with Damascus steel and the handles hewn out of camel bone.

    Sturdy English yeomen of Ye Olde Norf. They outweigh and overtop the gracile pakis by some margin, love their contact sports, and care not what their mummies, or The Law, thinks. Quite literally the spawn of vikings.
    So for an equal number of Norfs vs. Woggy Boys, the outcome is not in doubt. Which is why the vibrants, from gyppoes to somalis carry knives and more, and travel in packs. Fear.

    Fried Chicken as a fast food snack was pretty much unknown in the UK prior to the early 1970s when Kentucky Fried Chicken started off by opening small, franchised, outlets at a few select locations. Believe it or not, in those days it was a rare luxury and treat.

    The traditional British fast food was, of course, 'fish and chips' - sold by owner occupied stores, which has largely disappeared.

    In the past two or three decades there has been a vast vast expansion of KFC style clone establishments exclusively run and owned by subcon immigrants. Their clientele are mostly blacks, other subcons and the lowest of low class whites - the pitbull and sportswear brigade.

    U.K. government tries to fight knife crime with "racist" chicken box campaign

    The British government is facing criticism for a "racist" and "misguided" campaign to prevent knife crime by printing anti-knife slogans on fried chicken boxes. The boxes, hundreds of thousands of which have been sent to restaurants around the country, say "#knifefree" and tell stories of young people who pursued hobbies like music instead of carrying weapons. Critics say the campaign both fails to meaningfully tackle the issue and plays on racist stereotypes.

    Knife crime in England and Wales has risen by 80% since a low point in 2014, according to government figures. The majority of knife crimes take place in London. . .

    "Why is it in chicken shops? Why isn't it in Pizza Hut? Why isn't it in McDonald's?" Courtney Barrett, founder and director of the London-based group Binning Knives Saves Lives, told CBS News. His organization uses "knife amnesty bins" to collect weapons and get them off the streets of London. . . "Knife crime affects everyone. It can happen anytime, anywhere. All races, nationalities, ages, genders are carrying knives," he said.

    The Romans gained their empire by conquest. They had to fight some pretty tough people to get that empire. They also had to destroy some powerful and formidable rivals - the Carthaginians, the Macedonians, the Seleucids.

    Britain's empire was gained by taking land away from guys armed with spears. Land that no sane person would have wanted anyway.

    When they had to fight real enemies they mostly did so by paying others to do the hard fighting (subsidies to the Russians in the Napoleonic Wars, etc). British armies were not very British. Napoleon was beaten at Waterloo by the combined armies of Wellington and Blücher, armies which were in total about one-fifth British. Britain was never more than a second-rate military power.

    Before cooking the first batch in the morning, we had to dip a metal indicating rod into the hot oil. It had a disc on the end, which, when it disappeared, indicted how much fresh vegetable shortening you had to hack off from the brick and add to bring it back within spec. Sometimes in a rush, you had to get a machine up and running quickly due to unforseen demand, and this step was neglected. It was quite evident for former KFC cooks whether or not the oil was in spec by the ashphaltic overtones evident on chicken cooked in the old oil. KFC has to be just about the most horribly unhealthy stuff ever devised, cooked in room temperature solid shortening under pressure to seal in the grease, I mean, juices, I mean FLAVOUR, yes, flavour.
    Kinda of risky business for the cooks too, with lots of venting steam and hot oil under pressure. I knew one girl who received very bad burns when the bottom of the machine blew off when some locking pins were forgotten during reassmbly. Nasty. This was in the mid 80s though. The process may have improved somewhat in the interim.

    To be fair, what share of the under 30 white pop in the UK is like that? 40% , 50%?

    Strictly depends on the neighborhood.

    In somewhere such as Hampstead, it’s probably zero, whilst in Newham, it’s more than 50%.
    Hard to give a figure for the nation as a whole, but it’s very much correlated with welfare dependency. Roughly speaking, I would wager that a good 10% of white adults in the UK are wholly welfare dependent – as I mentioned before, this figure varies markedly by geography, even in such a tight spot as greater London.

    While I wouldn't eat any slop prepared by the devil worshippers, I was not too impressed by native food in the British Isles. Haddock is nothing special, and tartar sauce is a lot better than plain mayo on fried fish, which seems to be the typical condiment in the UK and Ireland.

    Pacific cod is excellent fried with dill flavored batter and accompanied by dill tartar sauce, Idaho russet french fries and cold lager. It's just damn good stuff.

    Haddock is nothing special, and tartar sauce is a lot better than plain mayo on fried fish, which seems to be the typical condiment in the UK and Ireland.

    I could write a volume on tarter sauce. I had the best house made tarter in a restaurant in an undisclosed location in New England. Tarter sauce must have lots of cucumber pickle cut into it and must be acidy anyway in the general mix from good quality vinegar or lemon. This is easy to analyze. This is acid cutting through the grease/bread crumbs/batter coating on the fish. And enhancing all flavors as the grease vs acid battle it out.

    The UK murder rate has gradually drifted up from about 0.8 per 100,000 per month in the late 40s, when UK gun laws were much more lax and there were millions of returning service personnel, many traumatised. It's now about 1.2 per 100,000 per year, despite an older population, ubiquitous CCTV and a near total gun ban.

    It's almost certainly down to changing demographics from mass immigration from the sub continent and the Caribbean, and lately pretty much anywhere in the third world. The murder rate trend is likely to continue upwards as the natives are replaced. Currently native Britons are a minority in London, Leicester and Slough, with Birmingham on the cusp. On current projection native Britons will become an overall minority in the UK in the 2060s.

    Mind you, the US rate is over 5 per 100,000 per year and South Africa — where I spend much time — is north of 35, a national murder rate still beaten by a few US cities — the one's you would predict.

    " tartar sauce is a lot better than plain mayo on fried fish"

    If you eat at a pub or restaurant (if you don't want to be ripped off in London, a Wetherspoons is your cheap'n'cheerful non-gourmet option - fish, chips, peas and a beer for about $14 - though the clientele may be cheap'n'cheerful too) you'll get tartare sauce. Mayo on fish/chips/everything is a Dutch/Belgian speciality, not British.

    Pleased to hear Dingle now has a chip shop, though. Is Fungi the dolphin still there? Not been for 30-odd years.

    In bygone days I remember red snapper and chips wasn't too bad - at a place in Half Moon Bay with a view of the dishes on the headland.

    In Newfoundland, fish and chips would often be served with a nice thick gravy mixed with bread crumbs, onions and savoury, which we called dressing. Home made fish would also often be served with crispy cubes of fried pork fat about the size of green peas, called scrunchions. Horribly unhealthy but tasty as hell. Probably not too bad for you when your day consisted of rowing a dory around the North Atlantic and hand lining fish for 12hrs a day, but slow death for a modern man.

    Hard to find good fish and chips there since the utter collapse of the cod stocks in 1992. Most of it comes in frozen, resulting in a battered mush instead of the wonderful flakey delicacy it should be.

    "the utter collapse of the cod stocks in 1992"


    Funnily enough that's a disaster that's never got much airplay in the UK, probably because the Danes (in the North Sea) and Spanish (everywhere else) are destroying UK stocks as well.

    The Danes fish stuff that no one wants except other fish and seabirds, to use as feed in factory farms, so the puffins starve.

    Puffins and other seabirds are unable to feed their young after Danish vessels stripped British waters of sand eels worth up to £80m.

    The Danes control 94% of the quota for UK sand eels and last year persuaded the EU to let them increase their annual take from 82,000 to 458,000 tons a year.

    Most of the catch, taken around Dogger Bank in the North Sea, was crushed into fishmeal for Denmark’s intensive salmon, mink and livestock farms.

    The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds fears that seabirds such as puffins and kittiwakes, which rely on sand eels to feed their young, face a disaster because so few eels remain. The charity has urged Michael Gove, the environment secretary, to use Brexit to “take back control” and end the reign of the Danish trawlers.

    The problem with fish & chips in North America is that they do fries, not proper thick chips - preferably double fried in beef dripping.

    Incidentally, fish & chips - though obviously available everywhere in the British Isles - is more of a northern English and Scottish meal.

    Indeed it is, and still very good up here if you know where to look.

    When I lived in Yorkshire I would make an occasional trip to a fish and chip shop in Keighley which claimed to be the place where the delicacy originated.

    I believe there is some kind of Pakistani tribal tradition of carrying knives or daggers, and they are certainly manufactured there and exported as a kind of cottage industry, and the blades are often forged with Damascus steel and the handles hewn out of camel bone.

    Sturdy English yeomen of Ye Olde Norf. They outweigh and overtop the gracile pakis by some margin, love their contact sports, and care not what their mummies, or The Law, thinks. Quite literally the spawn of vikings.
    So for an equal number of Norfs vs. Woggy Boys, the outcome is not in doubt. Which is why the vibrants, from gyppoes to somalis carry knives and more, and travel in packs. Fear.
    In a fair fight they’d be crushed and manually dismembered. With great, drunken, black yet good humour, of course. But above all, fairly.

    The Portuguese also taught the Japanese how to fry fish in oil which the Japanese called Tempura from a Latin liturgical term quatuor anni tempora ( the four seasons of the year) or tempora for short. During each of the quatuor anni tempora, there were 3 days on which you were not supposed to consume meat according to the Church and so might have fried fish instead.

    KFC was high quality in China 20 years ago. The meat was better than any chicken you'll find in the US. American chicken is third rate, unfortunately. Factory chicken farming is a crime against nature and the palate.

    While I wouldn't eat any slop prepared by the devil worshippers, I was not too impressed by native food in the British Isles. Haddock is nothing special, and tartar sauce is a lot better than plain mayo on fried fish, which seems to be the typical condiment in the UK and Ireland.

    Pacific cod is excellent fried with dill flavored batter and accompanied by dill tartar sauce, Idaho russet french fries and cold lager. It's just damn good stuff.

    Bill, the reason Scots/Norfs avoid cod (a London thing, like “rock cod” (some sort of dogfish?)) is worms. Above and beyond sheer economics and proximity.
    Even blitzed in the deep-frier, the sight of those curly bastards would turn your stomach. It’s the reason I gave up eating duck. Yea they’re just worms, the cooking should fuck them up goodstyle and roast their intestine-seeking eggs … but [/doubt].

    Oh and since we joined the lovely EU, all our seafood goes to the Med countries who can’t get enough. The “Cod Wars” are ancient history. I can sit in Girona, or La Palma, and enjoy some pricey (sorry about that), “langoustines” , scallops and razorfish (‘spoots’ to us), presented as authentic local delicacies, that last made landfall in Mallaig, Fraserburgh or Stromness. I would like to tie the smug and condescending waiters to the stem of a crab boat and take them off the west side, over by Foula, in February.

    What is euphemistically termed 'rock salmon' or 'rock' is, in fact dogfish - a dwarf species of shark - abundant in British waters. Popular in fish and chip shops in London and the south, partly due to having no bones to get stuck in your teeth.
    Like all cartilaginous fish, 'rock salmon' must be prepared well prior to cooking in order to get rid of the ammonia, which in these fish is quite over powering.
    'Skate' - another cartilaginous fish is also most popular.

    Fried Chicken as a fast food snack was pretty much unknown in the UK prior to the early 1970s when Kentucky Fried Chicken started off by opening small, franchised, outlets at a few select locations. Believe it or not, in those days it was a rare luxury and treat.

    The traditional British fast food was, of course, 'fish and chips' - sold by owner occupied stores, which has largely disappeared.

    In the past two or three decades there has been a vast vast expansion of KFC style clone establishments exclusively run and owned by subcon immigrants. Their clientele are mostly blacks, other subcons and the lowest of low class whites - the pitbull and sportswear brigade.

    WASP culture, formed fully by a Judaizing heresy, conquered the world and slowly led the world to embrace increasing levels of Anglo-Zionism. And now the inherent fruits of its end game are being revealed.

    The English middle and working classes used to take periodic delight that the Brit WASP Elites at least pretended to like them and almost halfway respect them at the same time those same Brit WASP Elites acted to exterminate as much Irish and Scottish culture as possible. Now, the English middle and working classes are going to get the same treatment, with new forms of torture and culturally genocidal policy.

    WASP culture always has been antithetical to the long term interests of the vast majority of the natives of the British Isles, and their descendants around the globe.

    The Anglo-Zionist Empire intends to do to all you white trash (which is all whites not accepted by the WASP Elites. including English-only-speaking Protestants whose ancestry is 100% English) what Cromwell intended to do to Irish Catholics. And the pattern now chosen is to flood your world with millions upon millions more Mohammedans and black Africans while making Jews even richer and more powerful.

    In 1994 after moving house my family had a bargain bucket to celebrate and even then it was seen as something rare.

    Today halal chicken joints have essentially replaced the working mans cafe (the British equivalent of an American diner) and fish and chip shop.

    Fish and chips died out because of overfishing by the European union made it too expensive (previously it had been poor peoples food). Working mans cafes just got displaces by immigrants.

    Halal fried chicken is often rotten meat ‘tumbled’ with a type of bleach to make it appear fresh and sold at the lowest possible price. It is absoloute garbage… but hey at least it isn’t pork amiright?

    It is shit food for people who do not know the joys of pork.

I told him that it was the case of us retaining one of Britain's great traditions: "We preserve what you have foolishly lost".

    Fine but you have to realise Britain is a very small place. Hunting is soley the preserve of the aristocracy and if you fire a bullet in a typical inhabited part of Britain you had better be damn sure where it is going. Even armed police here generally have semiautomatic guns even though they could easily be fully automatic for that reason.

    Knife crime is common in Britain solely because handguns are nearly unobtainable.

    Criminals can get guns in any country in the world except Singapore, and to an extent Japan (the Yakuza have them).

    All of Europe and the UK, Eire, everywhere there are fair numbers of old guns that families wisely never turned in, which is why Fiocchi in Italy and other Euro ammo manufacturers make batches of every imaginable obsolete Euro handgun cartridge. The French even made pinfire cartridges until the seventies. Most of this goes to the US or South America and some comes back in packages to the old country, where ammo is tightly controlled.

    I’m told that in England handguns illegally bring a lot of money and so criminals tend not to brandish them, but no self respecting serious criminal lack access to one if he feels he really needs it. They are good at hiding them.

    Few come from US troops stationed there, though: eastern Europe and the Middle East seem the sources. 9mm is far and away the preferred chambering for ammo availability reasons. Euro militaries are big on 9mm SMGs so there is a lot of ammo around and accounting for it is tough.

    In Newfoundland, fish and chips would often be served with a nice thick gravy mixed with bread crumbs, onions and savoury, which we called dressing. Home made fish would also often be served with crispy cubes of fried pork fat about the size of green peas, called scrunchions. Horribly unhealthy but tasty as hell. Probably not too bad for you when your day consisted of rowing a dory around the North Atlantic and hand lining fish for 12hrs a day, but slow death for a modern man.

    Hard to find good fish and chips there since the utter collapse of the cod stocks in 1992. Most of it comes in frozen, resulting in a battered mush instead of the wonderful flakey delicacy it should be.

    Britain’s empire was gained by taking land away from guys armed with spears. Land that no sane person would have wanted anyway.

    When they had to fight real enemies they mostly did so by paying others to do the hard fighting (subsidies to the Russians in the Napoleonic Wars, etc). British armies were not very British.

    Thank god there are no communists in the EU, putting limits on catches. That would be horrible. Where would our freedom go?

    Fine but you have to realise Britain is a very small place. Hunting is soley the preserve of the aristocracy and if you fire a bullet in a typical inhabited part of Britain you had better be damn sure where it is going. Even armed police here generally have semiautomatic guns even though they could easily be fully automatic for that reason. The exception I think is the police force that guards nuclear power stations.

    I think some Americans just do not realise how impractical guns are in Britain.

    Bill, the reason Scots/Norfs avoid cod (a London thing, like "rock cod" (some sort of dogfish?)) is worms. Above and beyond sheer economics and proximity.
    Even blitzed in the deep-frier, the sight of those curly bastards would turn your stomach. It's the reason I gave up eating duck. Yea they're just worms, the cooking should fuck them up goodstyle and roast their intestine-seeking eggs ... but [/doubt].

    Oh and since we joined the lovely EU, all our seafood goes to the Med countries who can't get enough. The "Cod Wars" are ancient history. I can sit in Girona, or La Palma, and enjoy some pricey (sorry about that), "langoustines" , scallops and razorfish ('spoots' to us), presented as authentic local delicacies, that last made landfall in Mallaig, Fraserburgh or Stromness. I would like to tie the smug and condescending waiters to the stem of a crab boat and take them off the west side, over by Foula, in February.

    tl;dr the EU is knowingly stripping the fishing grounds bare. Don't get me started on the shellfish. Or the herring.

    Yes.

    What is euphemistically termed ‘rock salmon’ or ‘rock’ is, in fact dogfish – a dwarf species of shark – abundant in British waters. Popular in fish and chip shops in London and the south, partly due to having no bones to get stuck in your teeth.
    Like all cartilaginous fish, ‘rock salmon’ must be prepared well prior to cooking in order to get rid of the ammonia, which in these fish is quite over powering.
    ‘Skate’ – another cartilaginous fish is also most popular.

    Hoodlums didn’t like carrying guns because if you had to use the gun you’d be hanged. Slashing someone with a razor was a good way to spread terror without the risk of being hanged.

    The Romans gained their empire by conquest. They had to fight some pretty tough people to get that empire. They also had to destroy some powerful and formidable rivals - the Carthaginians, the Macedonians, the Seleucids.

    Britain's empire was gained by taking land away from guys armed with spears. Land that no sane person would have wanted anyway.

    When they had to fight real enemies they mostly did so by paying others to do the hard fighting (subsidies to the Russians in the Napoleonic Wars, etc). British armies were not very British.

    In Newfoundland, fish and chips would often be served with a nice thick gravy mixed with bread crumbs, onions and savoury, which we called dressing. Home made fish would also often be served with crispy cubes of fried pork fat about the size of green peas, called scrunchions. Horribly unhealthy but tasty as hell. Probably not too bad for you when your day consisted of rowing a dory around the North Atlantic and hand lining fish for 12hrs a day, but slow death for a modern man.

    Hard to find good fish and chips there since the utter collapse of the cod stocks in 1992. Most of it comes in frozen, resulting in a battered mush instead of the wonderful flakey delicacy it should be.

    “the utter collapse of the cod stocks in 1992”

    Funnily enough that’s a disaster that’s never got much airplay in the UK, probably because the Danes (in the North Sea) and Spanish (everywhere else) are destroying UK stocks as well.

    The Danes fish stuff that no one wants except other fish and seabirds, to use as feed in factory farms, so the puffins starve.

    Puffins and other seabirds are unable to feed their young after Danish vessels stripped British waters of sand eels worth up to £80m.

    The Danes control 94% of the quota for UK sand eels and last year persuaded the EU to let them increase their annual take from 82,000 to 458,000 tons a year.

    Most of the catch, taken around Dogger Bank in the North Sea, was crushed into fishmeal for Denmark’s intensive salmon, mink and livestock farms.

    The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds fears that seabirds such as puffins and kittiwakes, which rely on sand eels to feed their young, face a disaster because so few eels remain. The charity has urged Michael Gove, the environment secretary, to use Brexit to “take back control” and end the reign of the Danish trawlers.

    U.K. government tries to fight knife crime with "racist" chicken box campaign

    The British government is facing criticism for a "racist" and "misguided" campaign to prevent knife crime by printing anti-knife slogans on fried chicken boxes. The boxes, hundreds of thousands of which have been sent to restaurants around the country, say "#knifefree" and tell stories of young people who pursued hobbies like music instead of carrying weapons. Critics say the campaign both fails to meaningfully tackle the issue and plays on racist stereotypes.

    Knife crime in England and Wales has risen by 80% since a low point in 2014, according to government figures. The majority of knife crimes take place in London. . .

    "Why is it in chicken shops? Why isn't it in Pizza Hut? Why isn't it in McDonald's?" Courtney Barrett, founder and director of the London-based group Binning Knives Saves Lives, told CBS News. His organization uses "knife amnesty bins" to collect weapons and get them off the streets of London. . . "Knife crime affects everyone. It can happen anytime, anywhere. All races, nationalities, ages, genders are carrying knives," he said.

    I could write a volume on tarter sauce. I had the best house made tarter in a restaurant in an undisclosed location in New England. Tarter sauce must have lots of cucumber pickle cut into it and must be acidy anyway in the general mix from good quality vinegar or lemon. This is easy to analyze. This is acid cutting through the grease/bread crumbs/batter coating on the fish. And enhancing all flavors as the grease vs acid battle it out.

    This X restaurant is the No Name in Boston but this was a while back so...... I cannot say how they make their tarter sauce these days and their cole slaw was off the charts non greasy too.

    Taking daily hot showers is an excellent method of delivering the toxic payload that is present in the water. Human skin will absorb this stuff like crazy. Also steam is inhaled and very efficient absorption occurs through the lungs.

    The payload alters human biology. It feminizes and tranquilizes the population. The elites see it as basic animal husbandry.

    I realize readers of the article will ask "How much more will the Brits take?" The answer could be a lot more.

    Funny had a mate years back who always said the same thing. Said the femail sex hormone in the urine from women on the pill getting into drinking water is behind the increase in homosexuality.

    I believe theres evidence with frogs that this has an effect.

    The sudden increase in trans kids could mean its only getting worse.
