    As does diversity of plumbing. Or, should I say, one-toilet-for-all, the opposite of diversity.

  3. Diversity of lawyers makes us stronger.

    https://www.standard.co.uk/news/crime/wilfred-marodza-rape-borough-jailed-a4336471.html

    A trainee solicitor at a top law firm who repeatedly raped a young woman he had abducted from the street as she celebrated her university graduation has been jailed for 14 years.

    Wilfred Marodza, 28, stalked the woman through the streets of Borough as she walked home from the pub and dragged her into a park where he carried out the attack.

    Well, it may have been her graduation, but it was his birthday!

  4. Diversity is what we have in common.

    “We” being those who are different from one another.

    “Diversity” being what makes us separate and different so that there can’t actually be a “we” or an “us.”

    But Diversity is good. Why is unimportant.

    The point is that Diversity must be unanimous and universal. Got it?

  11. Diversity makes us stronger.

    For example:

    A teenager has been jailed for more than 10 years after carrying out six “despicable and cowardly” acid attacks against moped riders in less than 90 minutes last year. Derryck John, from Croydon, south London, targeted the riders in an attempt to steal their vehicles in the north and east of the city on 13 July.

    Diversity makes us stronger

    Mr John is diverse and melanin-enriched, you won’t be surprised to hear. And here are some murder-victims in Khan’s diverse city. The names of the killers will be similarly exotic, uh, similarly 100% British:

    13 February, Saeeda Hussain, 54: Found with critical injuries at an address in Ilford and pronounced dead at the scene

    14 February, Promise Nkenda, 17: Fatally stabbed in Newham, east London

    17 February, Lewis Blackman, 19: Lewis, who grew up on the Peckwater estate in Kentish Town, was killed in Kensington. Witnesses told how a gang of about eight youths, some armed with sticks, shouted ‘let’s chase him down’, before he was stabbed

    17 February, Josef Boci, 30: Jozef was beaten up in the street in Greenwich and died in hospital

    19 February, Rotimi Oshibanjo, 26: Rotimi was fatally stabbed inside a property in the Halliday Square housing estate

    The royal couple told the BBC that they were set up by a mutual friend, but declined to identify her…

    Veteran royal-watchers believe that the “her” in question is Misha Nonoo, a fashion designer who is one of Markle’s closest friends.

    …Nonoo is a globetrotter: She was born in the Persian Gulf nation of Bahrain, raised in London, educated in Paris and is now based in New York. Nonoo comes from a influential Bahraini Jewish family. Her aunt Houda Nonoo was the first Jew to be appointed as an ambassador from an Arab country, serving as Bahrain’s envoy to the United States from 2008-2013.

    Sweden suffers surge in bomb attacks as gang violence rises

    Simon Johnson
    JANUARY 16, 2020

    STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – A surge in drug-linked gang-violence in Sweden led to a 60% increase in bomb blasts in 2019, government statistics showed on Thursday, as police work to rid the streets of explosives and guns with more officers on patrol.

    Sweden has been hit by a wave of shootings and bombings over the past couple of years which police have linked to gang conflicts in major cities, shocking Swedes, who have long considered their country one of the safest in the world.

    Some 257 bomb attacks were reported to police last year, up from 162 the previous year, the statistics from the National Council for Crime Prevention showed…

    “Hardly had the Mohammedan Arabs subdued and organized the Berbers of north Africa when they were invited by the Spanish Jews to cross the nine-mile strip of water at Gibraltar and possess themselves of the Christian kingdom. The plot was discovered, and the Jews sternly punished. A second attempt, however, was successful at a moment when the Visigoth monarchy was perishing of its own follies. “It remains a fact,” says the Jewish Encyclopedia, “that the Jews, either directly or through their co-religionists in Africa, encouraged the Mohammedans to conquer Spain.”

    Thanks for that replay, Almost M. I feel it could be the seed of a more formal piece—something like a Kipling poem—that would communicate with people (not just on our side) in a vivid, convincing way.

    In general, the analogy between the religion of pagan antiquity (with its cruel gods and unholy sacrifices) and the ersatz religion underlying our own culture (possibly from its beginnings) is illuminating on both sides. It’s evidence that our society has become pagan in its spirit.

    Excellent point 321.

    One of the bizarre aspects to life under minoritarianism is continual pronouncement of stories, claims, ideas that are obviously false. Often darn near just logical contradictions.

    “Diversity” does not make us stronger, it makes us weaker.

    Yes, it may be desirable to have some “skill diversity”. Some people make better carpenters, some better electrical engineers and you want both. Although even there, just having a population that is more capable–intelligent, conscientious and cooperative– beats the heck out of any innate “skill diversity.”

    But “diversity” as they mean it–different peoples, of different ethnic groups, with different cultures and values–clearly makes a society weaker.

    People are united and strong, precisely when they share a common culture–language, religion, norms, values, etc.

    All of history testifies to this. But modern history is basically an object lesson in how superior the coherent “one people” nations of Western Europe and later Japan were compared to anywhere that was “diverse” and “multicultural”. (Ottoman Empire, India, Russian Empire, Austrian Empire.) Even the somewhat more diverse places that have been successful–pre-60s America, the Soviet Union, Singapore, today’s rising China–have done it with one ethnic group utterly dominant, in command. And yet the remaining diversity always causes “issues”.

    Diversity flat out means “difference” … which amongst people means contention and conflict … weakness.

  47. God knows that Sadiq Khan is a SNEAKY SNEAKY SNEAKY politician bastard. I know it too!

    Sadiq Khan has been part of the Labour Party organized crime gang that has used mass legal immigration and mass illegal immigration as demographic weapons in order to attack and destroy England and London and the rest of the UK.

    Sadiq Khan said this about the Tony Blair/Labour Party plot to demographically attack and destroy England and the rest of the UK and to rub the Right’s nose in DIVERSITY using mass legal immigration and mass illegal immigration starting in 1997:

    Labour has been “too quick” to dismiss people’s concerns over immigration, a senior MP has warned in an open letter to Ukip voters.

    Shadow London Minister Sadiq Khan said his party had been wrong not to listen to voters’ fears – and admitted Labour had been too ready to accuse people of prejudice.

    In a direct appeal to voters who deserted the three main parties in favour of Ukip in local elections, Mr Khan cited the fallout from Gordon Brown calling Gillian Duffy a “bigot” in 2010 as evidence that Labour was losing touch with voters.

    “We know we made mistakes. We’re determined to put them right,” he wrote in an open letter to the Express.

    “Take immigration. In the past, we were too quick to dismiss concerns about immigration, or even worse – accused people of prejudice.

    “We all remember Gillian Duffy. We were wrong. We are sorry.”

    Labour made gains in London in last week’s local elections, including in key boroughs such as Croydon, Hammersmith and Fulham, and Redbridge.

    But the party suffered damaging results in former heartlands such as Rotheram as voters backed Nigel Farage’s Ukip.

    Mr Khan – who is tipped to run for London Mayor in 2016 – pledged to step in to stop immigration “driving down” wages for workers.

    Diversity can be good, but the notion of *random* diversity being good is just main stupid. Throw in some pasta, tomato sauce, basil, garlic, olive oil, boiling water, and a few other ingredients – in the correct proportions – and have the makings of a good meal.

    But today’s view of diversity seems to be that you can just go into the kitchen and throw in anything, in any proportion, and it will come out great, because “Diversity.” So add a gallon of tomato sauce, 3 spaghetti noodles, a pound of garlic salt, some saltine crackers, Little Debbie snack cakes, and a bottle or two of Liquid Drano and Presto!, you got a great dinner, because “Diversity.”

    Really a lot of people just buy into this diversity nonsense because they’re afraid of saying our culture is superior to anyone else’s; that our good fortune is the result of hard work, a healthy culture, and maybe good genes, and their poverty and violence is a result of the opposite. It does feel a little mean to say, even though it’s true. And, of course, fear of the speech police.

    Multiculturalism can work fine. Just usually not with Anglo-Saxon style democracy. One wonders if that isn’t the whole point of the exercise for our elites. An Ottoman style millet system suits their interests a lot better.

    (Multi-racialism is not the same thing. Taking Singapore as an example: although the Chinese, Malays, and Indians there still have sharp cultural and religious differences, after five decades of softcore authoritarian social engineering to make the project work, they have a lot more in common with each other than they do with their respective co-ethnics in the PRC, Malaysia/Indonesia, and India. A similar dynamic used to occur in the USA before our leaders decided we were a market with a nation rather than a nation who has an market.)

    Nero gets all the headlines, but the persecution of Christians in the Roman Empire only became truly systematic with the Crisis of the Third Century, when it looked to many as if Rome’s traditional gods had abandoned her as exotic cults got increasingly popular. Decius and Diocletian were both hardened religious conservatives who saw eradicating Christianity-which really began to grow during the crisis years-as a matter of national security.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see that dynamic in much of world history. When official ideology runs into trouble, the state will resort to less nice measures to enforce compliance and belief.

    However well the Romans and Ottomans did, they weren’t industrial republics. The rise of diversity in the US has corresponded very well with deanie ndustrialuzatiom, so it’s not even obvious that diversity and industry can coexist very well, much less diversity, democracy and modernity.

    Multiculturalism can work fine.

    If you define “work fine” solely from the perspective of the elites.

    Multi-racialism is not the same thing. Taking Singapore as an example

    Systems that work fine at the city-state level do not necessarily work well at the vast continental nation level. It’s like saying that because some tribal governments work smoothly, we ought to be able to govern the US with a council of tribal elders and a talking stick.

    Hmmm, and yet an all Black area isn’t considered in need of “diversity”. Same with an Asian area. Japan is allowed to stay 98% Japanese. Etc.

    Actually, Japan and South Korea are both experiencing increasing pressure to admit vibrant immigrants.

    The current angle is that they both have aging populations (true) and are going to suffer, “demographic collapse,” thus they need to import swarms of young vibrants to work, care for the old people, and pay lots of taxes to support subsidies for the elderly. All of which are totally unrealistic and will never happen.

    Rest assured, the usual suspects are the ones pushing this angle on Japan and South Korea.

    Can it? I’d say almost by definition it can not. The fundamental idea of legislation is that people, on the whole, are similar enough to treat them the same and have the fairs and unfairs cancel each other out.

    When there are two different groups of people in a society, any piece of legislation is going to be too lenient for one of them, and too restrictive for the other. The solution to that that causes politicians the fewest headaches is to make it either so lenient that it people feel equally free, or so restrictive that people feel equally miserable. In both cases, the most well behaved group suffers the most.

  92. OT:

    So I just came home (after having been awake for 35 of the last 36 hours) to find several nooz helicopters hovering overhead.

    (Some idiot/drunk/nutcase/senile fool drove the wrong way on a nearby expressway and caused a horrific multi-vehicle crash, shutting down all southbound lanes of a major artery just in time for the evening rush hour on the Friday before a holiday weekend. Why? We’ll never know, ‘cause the poor bastard is dead.)

    It’s been a long time since I’ve watched the five o’clock follies, but, what the hell, I might as well tune in for a few minutes to gawk at the footage.

    I turn the TV on. The clock reads 4:55. The program that leads into Da Nooz is wrapping up.

    I catch my first glimpse of Judge Judy in several years. (Truthfully, I’m mildly surprised to see that she’s still on the air. I vaguely recall reading that she was dealing with serious health problems. Maybe not.) She looks surprisingly well-preserved, but her crew cut makes Rachel Maddow seem like a paragon of femininity.

    Then I see the plaintiff (a womyn-born-womyn) and the defendant (a transwoman). The natural female is fat and has blue hair with rainbow frosting. The tall, angular, square-jawed tranny appears to be wearing a burgundy mop atop his/her/its head. S/he/it speaks in a rich baritone voice, instantly betraying his/her/its true status as an unholy freak of (un)nature. The blue-haired whale dutifully trots out the correct pronouns. Evidently the two “ladies” were good friends before the unfortunate falling-out.

    Mercifully, the entertainment ends and the nooz begins. Our fearless truthtellers begin spooning out the pablum. They’re all so charismatic – the grandfatherly white-Hispanic (Cuban) anchor and the perky Persian anchorette in the futuristic studio, with a numinous-Negro field reporter stationed about a mile from the crash scene. He’s standing under the freeway overpass, next to a bus stop.

    If he were to board that bus, he would see that one of the seats near the front is marked “Reserved in honor of Rosa Parks,” as it has been since shortly after her death in 2005.

    I rode the bus on the day that they first installed those signs. (If memory serves, it was an official county holiday – Rosa Parks Memorial Day or something like that.) On that one day, they actually enforced the dictate – anyone who sat down in that seat was asked to move. (Ironic, isn’t it?)

    To this day, all county buses reserve at least one seat for the redoubtable Mrs. Parks. You never know when her ghost is going to show up and demand a ride, I guess.

    (Senior citizens get free unlimited bus and train rides, thanks to the half-penny sales tax that was supposed to pay for several long-promised and never-built rail lines. All those grubby Boomers and Silents, riding around on the taxpayer’s dime while the ambitious rail-expansion plans sit gathering dust. Shame. At least we millennials get to ride the Metromover for free.)

    Recently I took the 120 bus from downtown Miami all the way up Miami Beach to Aventura Mall. (On a lazy Sunday afternoon, the mall was jam-packed with guys wearing yarmulkes.)

    At one point, an old German-speaking tourist boarded the bus and hobbled over to the Rosa Parks seat. Grunting and groaning, she eased her aged rump onto the hard plastic shell intended to contain the human posterior. (What, she was expecting to ride in comfort?) Then her son(?) tapped her on the shoulder and told her to move, pointing to the sign saying “Reserved” … and she got up – very slowly – and limped to the back of the bus! All without uttering a syllable of protest!

    (If I tried that with my mother, not only would she not comply, she’d denounce my suggestion with language that would make a sailor blush.)

    Orderly folks, those Teutons. They’ll wait five minutes to cross an intersection without a single car in sight. The light commands them to wait; they wait. The light commands them to go; they go. The light is eternal; the light is omniscient. The light giveth and the light taketh away. All must obey the light our Lord and Master. There is no middle ground.

    Wait – what was I talking about? Oh, yeah, Da Nooz.

    So the black guy is telling us about the crash. The helicopter footage reveals that the wrong-way driver’s Volkswagen has been squashed like a bug. The reporter gravely intones that the Beetle driver is dead and that several people have been taken to the hospital. Oh, and there’s a ten-mile traffic jam. Yet another day in paradise. Back to you, Rudabeh.

    (I’m not kidding – that’s her name.)

    Now that what has bled has led, Roxy Rudabeh sends us off to Washington for the impeachment feelies and the latest OrangeManBad two-minutes hate. Blah blah blah blah blah.

    Off the TV turn, do I.

    The one possible answer is the socialist/welfare pyramid scheme running out of taxpayers, which it would do as much or more thanks to offshoring as to divorce causing a birth collapse, and it’s totally illegitimate anyway because the vibrant new migratory people we’re talking about are consumers and not producers. Douglas Murray (Strange Death of Europe) is a very mainstream guy, won’t touch anything racisty, and he is solid on this point: we are absolutely not getting people who can do the jobs of the future, those people (insofar as they exist) stay home, and the people we get were something like their under-servants.

    From a 2007 article in New York Times:

    The downside of diversity
    By Michael Jonas
    Aug. 5, 2007

    IT HAS BECOME increasingly popular to speak of racial and ethnic diversity as a civic strength. From multicultural festivals to pronouncements from political leaders, the message is the same: our differences make us stronger.

    But a massive new study, based on detailed interviews of nearly 30,000 people across America, has concluded just the opposite. Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam — famous for “Bowling Alone,” his 2000 book on declining civic engagement — has found that the greater the diversity in a community, the fewer people vote and the less they volunteer, the less they give to charity and work on community projects. In the most diverse communities, neighbors trust one another about half as much as they do in the most homogenous settings. The study, the largest ever on civic engagement in America, found that virtually all measures of civic health are lower in more diverse settings.

    He gathered the initial raw data in 2000 and issued a press release the following year outlining the results. He then spent several years testing other possible explanations.

    Denmark has consistently been the least insane Scadinavian country, and now they just showed the rest of the West the way:

    Residents of “ghettos” are now subject to a different set of rules. Penalties for crimes can be doubled. Certain violations, for example, which are normally finable offences could mean imprisonment.

    Laws passed last March require children from the age of one to spend at least 25 hours a week in childcare to receive mandatory training in “Danish values”. There was even a proposal from the far-right Danish People’s party that “ghetto children” should have a curfew of 8pm, although that was rejected by the parliament.

    But perhaps one of the most insidious rules is that public housing in so-called “hard ghettos” will be limited to only 40 percent of total housing by 2030. This means that public housing is now either being torn down, redeveloped or rented to private companies. The fear is that thousands across Denmark may have to leave their homes. By some reports, that number could be more than 11,000 people.

    “Robert G Putnam belatedly begs to differ.”

    Not this again.

    Putnam said that “In the short term, he writes, there are clearly challenges, but over the long haul, he argues that diversity has a range of benefits for a society, and that the fragmentation and distrust can be overcome. It’s not an easy process, but in the end it’s “well worth the effort.’” He cites the integration of institutions like the U.S. Army as proof that diversity can work. Putnam’s brief contends that the 2007 paper has been “twisted” to make a case against race-conscious admissions, asserting that, on the contrary, his “extensive research and experience confirm the substantial benefits of diversity, including racial and ethnic diversity, to our society.”

    “I do need to step back a minute and say I think that the – it’s not merely a fact that America’s becoming more diverse. It’s a benefit. America will – all of us will, over the long run, benefit from being a more diverse, more heterogeneous place. Places that are more diverse have higher rates of growth on average and they have better cuisine. And it’s just a more interesting place to live.”

    “So in the long run, waves of immigration like we’re going through now and that we’ve gone through in the past and increasing diversity is good for a society. But what we discovered in this research, somewhat to our surprise, was that in the short run the more ethnically diverse the neighborhood you live in, the more you – every – all of us tend to hunker down, to pull in. The more diverse – and when I say all of us, I mean all of us. I mean blacks and whites and Asians and Latinos, all of us. The more diverse the group around us, ethnically, in our neighborhood, the less we trust anybody, including people who look like us. Whites trust whites less. Blacks trust blacks less, in more diverse settings.”

    Black homogeneity is worse than diversity with whites. White homogeneity is better than diversity with blacks.

    See my comment re:Liquid Drano.

    Actually I happen to think that there are more than a few (good) things blacks have added to our culture. The mistake was letting them overrun so many of our cities and in letting so many of their neuroses dominate our political discourse. We have also failed to realize that pure democracy is an abysmal failure. Allowing deadbeats, convicted felons, and the illiterate and barely literate to vote is a great harm to our political system.

    But yes, the reality is that whites in America don’t do that much better, if it all, than whites in Europe, especially Western Europe, from which most American whites trace their ancestry. Our per capita income is greater than most European countries (mostly thanks to our greater natural resources per capita), but our life expectancy is lower than many or even most European countries. American whites do better than Western European whites by a margin of a few percent. American blacks do better than African blacks by an order of magnitude.

    So literally 100% of the murders were of non-british people during that period and presumably 100% or close of the suspects were not british. That’s even strengthier than I would have imagined. That’s astonishing. Imagine how different things would be there without immivasion.

    Blacks made one good contribution, which was in music, but even that could be harmful in the long run as black-derived music favors impulse and wildness over sense and morals.

    I agree that anything can be good in small doses. Like spices in food. But Diversity Cult is always about overpowering the main ingredient with excess spices and sauces.

    I’m not conflicted at all. The Saxe-Coburgs are a failed royal family and it is the duty of the new age to kick out failed old regimes and to replace them with new and effective leadership. Unfortunately, there is no good replacement candidate: going republican (small r) with Charles (Il Tamponcino) as the mopping-up rump monarch to finalize things after EIIR passes seems the only way out.

    They needed new blood, they chose the wrong new blood. The Grimaldi-Kellys were off limits because Catholic, and Charles just wasn’t the basket you wanted to put all your eggs in. Still, they could have found some birthworthy woman of reasonable breeding who matched his interests better, had they ben doing their job.

    It’s academic now.

    Elizabeth the Useless: Sixty Years a Rubber Stamp
    by Sean Gabb

    Special to L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise

    Those of us who pay attention to such things will have noticed a difference between the BBC coverage of the Golden Jubilee in 2002 and of the present Diamond Jubilee. Ten years ago, the coverage was adequate, though reluctant and even a little stiff. This time, it has been gushing and completely uncritical. There are various possible reasons for my observation. The first is that I was mistaken then and am mistaken now. I do not think this is the case, but feel obliged to mention it. The second is that Golden Jubilees are rare events, and Diamond Jubilees very rare events, and that extreme rarity justifies a setting aside of republican scruples. The third is that the BBC was taken by surprise in 2002 by the scale of public enthusiasm, and does not wish to be caught out again. The fourth is that, while not particularly conservative on main issues, we do now have a Conservative Government, and this is headed by a cousin of Her Majesty. There may be many other reasons.

    However, I believe the chief reason to be that the new British ruling class has finally realised what ought always to have been obvious. This is that, so far from being the last vestige of an old order, dominated by hereditary landlords and legitimised by ideologies of duty and governmental restraint, the Monarchy is an ideal fig leaf for the coalition of corporate interests and cultural leftists and unaccountable bureaucracies that is our present ruling class. The motto for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee was “Sixty Years a Queen.” The motto now might as well be “Sixty Years a Rubber Stamp.” If, during the six decades of her reign, England has been transformed from a great and powerful nation and the classic home of civil liberty into a sinister laughing stock, the ultimate responsibility for all that has gone wrong lies with Elizabeth II.

    Now, I can—as Enoch Powell once said— almost hear the chorus of disapproval. How dare I speak so disrespectfully of our Most Gracious Sovereign Lady? Do I not realise that, under our Constitution, Her Majesty reigns, but the politicians rule? How, in all conscience, can I shift blame for what has happened from the traitors who actively worked for our destruction—Harold Wilson, Edward Heath, Tony Blair, and the others—to a woman without executive function who has always devoted herself to our welfare? The answer is that, if she never projected the theft of our ancestral rights, it was her duty to resist that theft, and to resist without regard for the outcome—and it was in her power to resist without bringing on her head any of the penalties threatened or used against her subjects. But she did not resist. At no time in the past sixty years, has she raised a finger in public, or, it is probably the case, in private, to slow the destruction of an order of things she swore in the name of God to protect.

    Let me explain the true functions of the English Monarchy. Many foreigners have looked at all the bowing and kissing and walking backwards, and thought England was some kind of divine right despotism. Others have looked at the assurances of Walter Bagehot, and believed that England was, to all intents and purposes, as much a republic as modern France or Germany. Anyone who believes either of these things is wrong.

    The function of the Monarchy is to express and to sustain our national identity and all that stands with it. The Monarchy reminds us that our nation is not some recent arrival in the world, and that the threads of continuity between ourselves and our distant forebears have not been broken. England and its Monarchy exist today, and five hundred years ago, and a thousand years ago, and one thousand five hundred years ago. And, as we go further back, they vanish together, with no sense that they ever began at all, into the forests of Northern Europe. And with the fact of immemorial antiquity goes the idea of indefinite future continuation. Any Englishman who studies his national history finds himself uniquely in a conversation across many centuries. What an English writer said in 1688, or in 1776, or in 1832, is not alien to us now, and still has some relevance to our understanding of what kind of people we are.

    Her Majesty has discharged her expressing function. However, since all this needs, at the most basic level, is for her to occupy the right place in her family tree and know how to smile and wave, she deserves as much praise as I might claim for having two legs. If, like the Emperor of Japan, she never said or did anything in public, she would still express our national identity. The problem is that she has done nothing to sustain that identity in any meaningful sense.

    By law, the Queen is our head of state, and Supreme Governor of the Church of England, and Commander in Chief of all the armed forces. She appoints all the bishops and judges, and all the ministers and civil servants. She declares war, and all treaties are signed on her behalf. She cannot make new laws by her own authority and impose taxes. To do either of these, she needs the consent of Parliament. On the other hand, she can also veto any parliamentary bill she dislikes—and her veto cannot be overriden by any weighted majority vote of Parliament. These are the theoretical powers of an English Monarch. Except where limited by seventeenth century agreements like the Petition of Right and the Bill of Rights, she has the same legal powers as Henry VIII.

    During the past three centuries, though, the convention first emerged and then hardened, that all these powers should be exercised in practice by a Prime Minister who is leader of the majority party in the House of Commons. He may be called First Minister of the Crown. He may have to explain himself every week to the Monarch. Where things like Royal Weddings and Jubilees are concerned, he mostly keeps out of sight. But, as leader of the majority party in the House of Commons, the Prime Minister draws his real legitimacy from the people. No Monarch has dismissed a Prime Minister, or tried to keep one in office, since the 1830s. No Monarch has rejected a parliamentary bill since 1708.

    Because it is unwritten, and because its various conventions are in continual flux, the English Constitution can be rather opaque. It is, however, based on an implied contract between people and Monarch. This is that, in public, we regard whoever wears the Crown as the Lord’s Anointed. In return, the Monarch acts on the advice of a Prime Minister, who is accountable to us.

    But, like any other agreement in a common law country, this implied contract is limited by considerations of reasonableness. It ceases to apply when politics become a cartel of tyrants and traitors. Once the politicians make themselves, as a class, irremovable, and once they begin to abolish the rights of the people, it is the duty of the Monarch to step in and rebalance the Constitution. It is then that she must resume her legal powers and exercise them of her own motion.

    The need for this duty to be performed has been apparent since at least 1972, when we were lied into the European Union. The Conservatives did not fight the 1970 general election on any promise that they would take us in. When they did take us in, and when Labour kept us in, we were told that it was nothing more than a trade agreement. It turned out very soon to be a device for the politicians to exercise unaccountable power. The Queen should have acted then. Indeed, she should have acted—if not in the extreme sense, of standing forth as a royal dictator—before 1972. She should have resisted the Offensive Weapons Bill and the Firearms Bill, that effectively abolished our right to keep and bear arms for defence. She should have resisted the Bills that abolished most civil juries and that allowed majority verdicts in criminal trials. She should have resisted the numerous private agreements that made our country into an American satrapy. She should have insisted, every time she met her Prime Minister, on keeping the spirit of our old Constitution. There have been many times since 1972 when she should have acted.

    At all times, she could have acted—all the way to sacking the Government and dissolving Parliament—without provoking riots in the street. So far as I can tell, she has acted only twice in my lifetime to force changes of policy. In 1979, she bullied Margaret Thatcher to go back on her election promise not to hand Rhodesia over to a bunch of black Marxists. In 1987, she bullied Margaret Thatcher again to give in to calls for sanctions against South Africa.

    And that was it. She is somewhere on record as having said that she regards herself more as Head of the Commonwealth than as Queen of England. Certainly, she has never paid any regard to the rights of her English subjects.

    The Queen has not sustained our national identity. It is actually worse than this. By expressing that identity, she has allowed many people to overlook the structures of absolute and unaccountable power that have grown up during her reign. She has fronted a revolution to dispossess us of our country and of our rights within it. How many of the people who turn out on Jubilee Day, with their union flags and street parties, will fully realise that the forms they are celebrating now contain an alien and utterly malign substance?

    First draft:

    The God Who Repeals the Copybook Headings
    – or –
    Diversity is a Weak and Stupid God

    The gods they are many and varied, so how are we to choose?
    We have so much aspiration, and merely the world to lose!
    They were many the gods of Athens, and many the gods of Rome,
    Many icy bright gods had the Nordics, and the desert had gods of stone.

    Then finally the G-d of Hebrews gave us The One Son of Man.
    How many profess to grasp Him, yet how few actually can.
    But if you wish for a god to know now, a god to caress and touch,
    A god to embrace as does Macron, well then now we have us such!

    They is a god who asks little: just that you keep your mouth shut,
    That you never say nothing offensive, that you never think nothing but
    What the Censors have pre-approvéd, what the kritarchs demand of you,
    (This is most fair and equitāble, giving Diversity Their due.)

    Oh, also give up your homeland, (eventu’lly that means your home),
    Also your children and grandchilds, heh, in fact your whole genome.
    What you sacrifice means little, for your blood has long been corrüpt.
    But burn Them your first unborn child, you’ll get a gold globe as you’re schtupped!

    And of course you must never notice the peculiar coincidence,
    How many priests of Diversity are hallowed Moses’s descendants!
    Perhaps this formerly great race, having missed the Messiah their own,
    Now longs for that earthly redemption that would never be theirs alone?

    Nor notice the strange contradiction, that no matter how fanatically
    The priests of Diversity preach us, it is only “Diverse For Thee”!?!
    Secure in their own homes and homelands, they do not consecrate
    The ground to this mongrel religion: the Church of Anti-Hate.

    Instead they practice in private the same that the gods of old
    Said in the Copybook Headings: wisdom ne’er oft enough told.
    May we too practice such wisdom as worked since the Triassic?
    “No!” say the Kritarchs Supremae, “That would not be holistic!”

    Diversity is our strength! Say it with me now!
    Let us invoke the power of our new sacred cow!
    There can be no dissention, for what is a certainty
    Is that only the mind-slave can serveth: Di-ver-si-ty!

    The Chaunt of Diversity’s Disappointed Supplicants

    DIVERSITY! DIVERSITY!
    We cannot allow one who seeks to be free.
    DIVERSITY! DIVERSITY!
    We must forego prosperity.

    Diversity! Diversity!
    Forget our heroes, they’re not PC.
    Diversity! Diversity!
    Accept the tenets. It’s mandatory.

    Whatever we’re offering, ’tis never enough.
    The god of Diversity needs more of our stuff!
    We wanted to sacrifice to salve souls lynchéd,
    Yet with every concession, Emmett Till’s more undead!

    What kind of god is this, whose lands become blighted?
    Whose worshippers murder, whose dogma’s benighted?
    Are these really the signs of a great god’s glory?
    Or merely a swindle lurking ‘neath a story?

    Diversity. Diversity.
    Only has space for conformity.
    Diversity … diversity?
    Is weak and stupid, … obviously.

    Putnam said that “In the short term, he writes, there are clearly challenges, but over the long haul, he argues that diversity has a range of benefits for a society, and that the fragmentation and distrust can be overcome. It’s not an easy process, but in the end it’s “well worth the effort.’”

    Putnam was obliged to equivocate in service to political correctness, but his findings stand. To suggest the problems can be overcome is a poor argument. Why invite the problems in the first place? Just grow and improve a country with the homogeneous natives as everyone has done since the beginning of time.

    It’s a benefit. America will – all of us will, over the long run, benefit from being a more diverse, more heterogeneous place. Places that are more diverse have higher rates of growth on average and they have better cuisine. And it’s just a more interesting place to live.”

    There is more to this story unfortunately which the press will not tell you. It’s a sad story ultimately, firstly on the victims and their families but also on W. The context was binge drinking. W was about to go back home to Eastbourne with no plans whatsoever to be in London. Former colleagues from another firm which I will.not name, invited him out for drinks. In the end he drank far way too much. HE was singled out by the bar staff and kicked out of the night club but the circs are not quite as put in the media. He was notably the only black Male.

    The colleagues were very drunk. One of the colleagues was about to go and help W but others stopped the help. It’s not clear whether W’ drink was spiked even that night with drugs. This is the suspicion of his friends aas this was completely out of character. Sadly the police did not test him within 48 hours. Another feature of this case is that there was no DNA proof and a lot of the CCTV was unclear.

    A psychologist and psychiatrist assessed W and both confirmed alcohol played a significant role and he would have never committed the offences if he had not been that drunk. But it was the perfect storm, Wi; was not even meant to be in London. He was asked by his firm to work thaf day even though it was his birthday.

    Due to the extreme intoxication W had no recollection of what happened but as soon as he was shown evidence he pleaded guilty.
    Prior to these incidents W was of exceptional good character and many wrote references to this effect.

    The Judge specifically agreed with the experts and defence that he was not a danger to the public. Yet the media and met police make references to W being a predator something which was specifically and successfully challenged via the experts.
    .
    The judge was about to leave the court room and the prosecution Barrister asked for a commendation for the police officer. The judge did not refuse. But the media portrays the commendation as though it was spontaneous from the Judge.

    I read everything related to this case, each and every witness statement Sadly everyone involved that night did not behave impeccably. London will never be safe if we dont accept the role of and the impact it can have on behaviour and inhibition. London will never be safe if our attitude towards alcohol doesnt change. London will never be safe if those who deal with and sell drugs are not quickly detected and punished

    The police vilify W but fail to use this opportunity to highlight the danger and role of alcohol in sexual offences.

    As for the criminal justice system,ll. W’s had to instruct privately and pay for experts privately. His family and friends effectively paid. Had he relied on legal aid and the probation report (which was rejected by the court thanks to the privately paid experts) W would have faced the worst injustice.

  155. @Rob

    The fifth verse may prevent that.

  156. @Anonymous

    No worries. When British Sharia law comes into full effect in a few years, alcohol will no longer be a problem for the W’s or for anyone else. And since it sounds like there were fewer than four witnesses, this wouldn’t count as rape anyway.

  157. @Anonymous

    That’s a sad tale of might-have-beens, and thanks for filling in the blanks. A pity someone didn’t help him earlier.

    A fair old number of lawyers or law students (and city types too) seem to end up facing sexual assault charges – the work hard/play hard culture, the long hours which restricts social life to your colleagues, the booze, pressure of work – all seem conducive to drunken encounters/misunderstanding, or even plain old assault of the “I passed out then found him in bed with me” sort.

    But very few of those guys, no matter how many clubs they’ve been chucked out of or how drunk they are, would grab a total stranger off the streets and rape them. Or is that also not as advertised? You say there was no DNA evidence?

    “London will never be safe if those who deal with and sell drugs are not quickly detected and punished”

    Agreed, but I can imagine that would put even more black people in jail and the Guardian would give the police a hard time.
