Archie Windsor Not The Most Famous Archie Ever

Britain, Celebrity, Comedy & Humor, English, Political Correctness

Well, whoop dee do! A royal baby is born.

Archie is a good name for the royal baby. Full name of the son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Who doesn’t love Archie Bunker, one of the great characters of good American TV, RIP? (Fine comedy/satire is a thing of the past.)

(Joke alert to the chronically mirthless.)

What The Crap Country Of Britain Did To Activist Tommy Robinson For The Crime Of … Speech

Britain, Criminal Injustice, Free Speech, Individual Rights, Islam, Law

The country from which the American Constitution makers got their inspiration is now a crap country. For reporting news—speaking, nothing more—Britain’s anti-Islam activist Tommy Robinson was imprisoned in a jail with the largest Muslim population and kept in solitary confinement for 2 months.

He went to prison in a supposedly free country for expressing unpopular opinions in public and then purposefully placed in predicaments that almost got this young man killed: That’s England.

Due process? There was none. But there was a mosque in his prison.

Media? The legal profession? All formed a conga-line to attack Tommy Robinson.

Tommy’s fight is ongoing: “Tommy Robinson contempt of court hearing over Facebook video delayed.”

The latest in the annals of the crap country of Britain: “Devout Catholic ‘who used wrong pronoun to describe transgender girl’ to be interviewed by police.

MERCER’S Like A Man …

My reply to John’s recent email about the Mercer writing style and thinking being like those of a man:

“Yes, I like that. But most men no longer write, think or behave like men ought to.
Post your comment to my Unz Review column and you’ll see THE REACTION you get from THE MINI MEN who dog me on the site.”

Just one example.

The oracular Dr. Sam Johnson, from his perspective in England of the 1770s, would have caned these mini men for their lack of manners. He certainly would have failed the prose of most men and women today for its billowing, self-indulgent quality.

Well considered and written.

A few years ago I said you wrote like a man. …

Well now I think you also think like one. So In you, I’ve found the best of both sexes…

A Brief Word On A Short-Lived Brexit

Britain, Conservatism, EU, Europe, Nationhood, Secession

By Sean Gabb

I suppose I should write a formal essay, only I’m presently too worn down by the pantomime to think again at any length about our failed departure from the European Union. So here is a comment I placed last night on FaceBook:

John Pate is right. There will be no Brexit. The parliamentary stalemate will continue into January, when everyone will agree to a deferral of the leaving date from March to December.

The stalemate will then continue until everyone “reluctantly” agrees to a new referendum. This time, the Sheeple will vote as told. This is the only likely outcome. No preparations have been made for leaving without a deal. Some degree of chaos is inevitable – inevitable because planned. The only deal on offer is worse than staying in. If asked, I will vote again to leave. But enough will vote to stay.

This is, I confess, a disappointing outcome. On the other hand, it is better than having lost the first referendum. Enough people will know we have been defrauded this time for the Conservative Party to be ripped apart. And that will be a reasonably positive outcome.
