There are undoubtedly moments in sport that define us. As an Englishman of an advanced age, in my memory there will forever be those immortal words from the 1966 Football World Cup Final commentary…. “there's people on the pitch, they think it's all over ….. it is now” as Geoff Hurst smashed the ball from … Continue reading Miserable politicians criticise their own World Cup winning cricket team!
Anybody remember the old Jethro Tull hit, ”Thick as a Brick”? I was reminded of it today during Prime Minister question time in the House of Commons: ”Will the Prime Minister confirm that the disgraceful actions against the Windrush immigrants took place under her watch as the U.K. Home Secretary”? (Jeremy Corbyn) “And your wise … Continue reading Thick as a brick! ….. dear Jeremy.
The death of British steelmaking 1967-1979 It has become a tactic of the sneering, left wing, youth movement of the Facecrook-Twatterati to belittle the decline of British manufacturing and to ascribe its causes to Thatcher, financial institutions, politicians generally, the unfair EU, .... But what do they know of those times? Were they even alive … Continue reading 5. The ultimate death of British steelmaking.
The Hypocrisy of Communism
Why are so many people blind to the appalling history of communism emanating from the likes of Trotsky, Stalin, Castro, and, the biggest mass murderer of all time, Mao Tse Tung? This blindness prevents them from seeing the now blindingly obvious creep of this failed political philosophy into the British Labour Party, openly espoused by their Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell and increasingly enacted by the bully boys of Momentum. The concept of the Brown Shirts from the 1930s are amongst us again with Momentum’s totalitarian views and actions as exposed a couple of days ago in the London Evening Standard.
More needs to be “pushed” into the Twittersphere to expose and inform the gullible about the complete lack of evidence for any success of communist regimes who often begin their infiltration of society in the guise of socialism, (just as Momentum are doing with their supposed care about housing) and this Reblog of an outstanding summary of the Hypocrisy of Communism caught my eye a few days back. The author has done a good job of encapsulating the sorry history of this type of politics and how those perpetrating it have no care for social justice as opposed to a long term search for total power.
What always struck me about communism was the blatant hypocrisy of the revolutionaries and leaders; instead of building examples of Marxist and communist economies, societies and governments they were more interested in imposing communism on the masses. This created the need for a centralized, totalitarian government that could crack down on the people. The biggest, glaring example of communist hypocrisy is the roles revolutionaries and communists always assume they deserve: some sort of commune leader, commissar, re-education minister or another “soft” job. Nobody wants to work 16 hours on a collective farm, break their body down in a mine shaft, or even machine parts critical to the infrastructure and military components of state and society.
I want to work for 16 hours in a gulag… Wait, what?!
This can be seen in Russia and the USSR and in many other communist movements. One example would be Leon Trotsky: with no…

I don’t usually post at weekends and ..... I know I know ...... you wouldn’t expect me to write something in praise of Dear Jeremy. But his decisive action in removing Owen Smith from his shadow cabinet of senior politicians because he supported calls for a second referendum on Brexit is worthy of “some” praise. … Continue reading Well done Jeremy Corbyn!
