What Did You Expect? 693

I have no sympathy at all for anybody who voted No on the grounds of the pledges by Brown, Miliband, Cameron and Clegg about constitutional change, and is now whingeing about the blatant dishonour of those pledges. I cannot understand how anybody could be so stupid as to have believed them, and yet have a brain capable of sparking respiration.

Labour is interested in losing no influence of Scottish Labour MPs on any UK or English matters. It wants greater powers to English metropolitan councils which are controlled by Labour – because that will give Labour careerists more jobs and access to contracts. Those are Labours “constitutional reform” goals. The Conservatives “constitutional reform” goals are to keep Scotland’s tax on oil revenues and tax on whisky coming to Westminster, while loading greater responsibilities but no more money on the Scottish parliament, and stopping Scottish MPs voting on English matters thus guaranteeing conservative apparatchiks continued jobs and access to contracts.

Both Tories and Labour want to keep the appalling corrupt and undemocratic House of Lords for its jobs for apparatchiks, access to contracts etc.

Nobody cares what the Lib Dems think anyway.

I ask again – what did you expect?

This is the collective wisdom of Andy Myles and myself, over an excellent mackerel breakfast at Nom De Plume.

    Is your objection to a recount primarily the cost?

  • Resident Dissident

    Yes I admit it was me impersonating John Goss. I apologise to anyone here who may have been taken in by my transparent impersonation of Mr Goss.

    I most decidedly do not apologise for any offence that I may have caused to Mr Goss whose lies and misrepresentations both Habba and I have pointed out on numerous occasions, who pushes anti semitic holocaust denying websites, who excused Stalin of the Holodomor, who repeatedly fails to condemn many of the excesses of the Soviet Union and now Mr Putin, and continued to support those convicted of terrorism based on their own confessions.

    I should also advice Mr Goss that impersonation is not a criminal offence, unless it is of a police officer (or similar) or in order to commit fraud, which it most certainly wasn’t. As for libel – please bring it on – to attribute a comment opposing the oppression of free trade unions in the former Soviet Empire to Mr Goss would be seen as flattery rather than defamation by most right thinking people. Of course it is important to Mr Goss in the circles that he moves not to be see as a supporter of Solidarnosc and other free trade unions in the former Soviet bloc and to the withhold the priciples that the Soviet Union followed as socialist ones then I am happy to confirm that Mr Goss has done no such thing and I apologise for sullying his reputation in those circles.

    I should add that I made no attempt to distinguish my ISP from that which I use in my own name – a task which is just a matter of switching my broadband connection on and off as I do not have a static ISP address.

    I should also add that the impersonation was imply undertaken by typing up Mr Goss’s email address which he scatters liberally over the internet in support of his many dubious causes.

    As for the reasons as to why I have lost my temper with Mr Goss and his ilk, perhaps it is worth asking questions are why so many here are keen to find details in respect of those anonymous posters who object to their own particular viewpoint. Well all I am prepared to say is that I and my children are now more than aware – and the nature of the offences pail into insignificance against by own provocation. My advice to right thinking people is to guard your personal details here very closely, I would also ask that the mods review the security of the information that they hold both at present and historically. I am not accusing Mr Goss or anyone else specifically of the offences committed – but I am more than satisfied that someone of a long term working knowledge of this blog is to blame. I shall not be going into further details on this matter.

    “Sorry, Fred. I should have known any humor would be lost.”

    Find somebody else to take the piss out of shit head.

  • Ishmael

    “fucking wankers”

    “Sorry, Fred. I should have known any humor would be lost.”

    Outburst gave me a chuckle actually.

  • Ben E. Geserit Muad'Dib Further Confounding Gender Speculators

    Hoo-boy. A non-apology apology. That’s gonna go over big.

  • Resident Dissident

    “The whole torture issue arose out of Habbabkuk and Resident Dissident/ESLO’s apparent support for Guantanamo Bay and what goes on there.”

    Where is the proof for this assertion that I supported Guantanamo Bay and what goes on there? Please provide a link.

    Another day, another lie from Mr Goss I’m afraid.

  • Resident Dissident

    A non-apology apology.

    If you think I was apologising to you – think again. You have the small matter of apologising to the memory of 6m before your turn comes around.

  • fred

    “Is your objection to a recount primarily the cost?”

    What the hell are you talking about now? I haven’t objected to a recount so don’t say I have. Have a recount, it will say exactly the same as the original count because nobody cheated. It’s just the Nats trying to welch on the deal.

    If we’ve learnt anything here it’s that even the Westminster government have more integrity than the Nationalists and more honour than Salmond. Thank God they didn’t win.

  • Resident Dissident

    And Yes I owe an extremely small apology to Mary for the white lie about making a small change to my email address and hence my gravatar – this was done to make matters even clearer to the mods as to what was happening.

  • Ben E. Geserit Muad'Dib Further Confounding Gender Speculators

    A non-apology apology.

    “If you think I was apologising to you”

    I think the mod indicated you owed John an apology which you refuse to give. The rest is just window dressing.

  • Resident Dissident

    “I think the mod indicated you owed John an apology which you refuse to give.”

    So don’t call it a non apology apology.

  • Fedup

    You are right. Ignore everything I’ve said so far. Why does it upset you so much that Afghans are killing Syrians and that the India-Pakistani scholars pray for their success in this endeavour?

    Fact that all you are doing is further enforcing the stereotypes the currency of the racist and bigots, and god knows UK has the copyright on that!

    You proclaim to be a Muslim, yet you have nothing but contempt for Muslims, and your continual Muslim Bashing is a constant throughout your “contributions”.

    iSIS/iSIL/iS are the same takfeery (feral youth) who are being trained by the US trainers in Jordan, and then armed with US manufactured weapons, who are then injected into Syria and lately into Iraq. (this was verified by the bbc reporter who went on record; “they (iSIS) have been using the “captured weapons” to stunning accuracies”!

    Why do you not explore this point?

    You have picked on “Bradford” the same city that it’s MP is getting death threats and was beaten senseless and so far not a word of condemnation from the establishment, all the while inflaming hatred by alluding to the “sex scandals”. You are in fact zionist scum supporter who is in a fashion after Fake Adam Yahiye Gadahn busy working on goyim cattle from another angle (within the Muslims) if you like.

    Whilst Muslims are everyday getting beat up racially discriminated against, all of which is going unnoticed and under the radar, the likes of you are in fact busy reinforcing further the stereo typical racist drivel surrounding Muslims, and making it all easier for the perpetrators to carry on their racial abuse of Muslims.

    Racism is a vile policy that is designed to separate as in the way of divide and rule. You are no Muslim, your gripes about Mullahs (mad Mullahs), is nothing short of a crusade against Muslims.

    You have been supporting the Kurds because they are busy tearing Iraq apart and have been pretty nicely letting the zionist scum to get away with almost murder in the Iraqi Kurdistan!

    The rest of the ill informed and ignorant morons may be buying the unconscious drivel you spew, but those who have a slight understanding of the dynamics involved can see through your veneer of “PBUH” etc!

    The working class (that is anyone with less than six million pounds quick call cash access) ought to be asking; “why are we being pushed to hate one another?” You are no working class, you are a zionist scum!

    “this was done to make matters even clearer to the mods as to what was happening.”

    There used to be a kind of puppet-like clown in a glass case on Blackpool Pleasure Beach outside the Fun House there. It laughed uncontrollably rocking from side to side and round and round and in this video it even has its own sock-puppet.


  • John Maxwell

    What the hell did any of you expect? Everyone hailing “democracy” as some great thing, hoping for an independent Scotland where everyone will be in front of a roaring fire, protected from the harsh cold. Like the right or the left cares about you? Democracy = Two wolves and a sheep voting on what’for dinner.

    Democracy, where the “winning” 51% can fuck the other 49%. What a beautiful system.

    Democracy my arse!

  • Resident Dissident

    MR Goss

    You never did answer the question as to what name you posted under before late 2011.

  • lysias

    Impersonating someone on a forum, even if it is not criminal, ought surely to be grounds for banning from the site where it is perpetrated.

  • Peacewisher

    I’ve tried several times to say something, RD, but the Internet has swallowed up my responses. Now John has got in ahead of me. 🙂 If he’s prepared to forgive, then I will. Probably a first, John; confessions like this are rare. I’m sorry your family have had nasty experiences on the Internet, RD… I had my first one in 1996 so developed a bit of a thick skin.

  • lysias

    Democracy of the Athenian kind, where every segment of the population is proportionally represented, is surely not a case of two wolves and a sheep deciding on what is for dinner.

    The Marxist ancient historian admits, in his The Class Struggle in the Ancient Greek World, that democracy of the Athenian kind protected the bulk of the population from the worst abuses of the rich.

  • Ben E. Geserit Muad'Dib Further Confounding Gender Speculators

    It is questionable whether you can seek damages when you use a pseudonym, but John’s name is his property. That’s a big difference and I think John has a case.

  • John Goss

    I never said impersonation was a criminal offence ESLO/Resident Dissident. I said identity theft was a criminal offence. If you haven’t got the grace to do a proper apology, I won’t have the grace to accept it. Do the sensible thing and save yourself a lot of trouble.

  • Peacewisher

    @Ben: the intent was (I think…) mischief-making not personal gain. What would you have in your book of medieval punishments that might come into that category.

  • Ishmael

    Why did Alex say this is it. A get it may have made some push harder, but I wonder if that’s really where he was coming from.

    I picture the construction of a battering ram, years to make, a huge push and it nearly breaks the door down (assuming for a moment there was not mass fraud) and that’s it?

    After all that you need to wait 20 years or a lifetime? Is this not completely stupid, The ram is still in front of the gate. All the people are still about, what is there to wait for?

  • Resident Dissident

    Mr Goss

    I haven’t committed identity theft as defined by the law. In order to impersonate you I only typed in an email address that you made publicly available. I should also remind you that falsely accusing some of a criminal offence is clearly defamation. If you are so upset at being portrayed as a supporter of free trade unions within the Soviet bloc then I apologise for the misleading impression that I gave as to your views. Quite frankly I don’t care about your grace – and I would like an apology for your comments about my views on Guantanamo and several other cases of misrepresentation on your part.
