Hangover Cure 95

This speech was delivered despite one of the greatest hangovers in the entire history of the universe:


I am rather proud of it. Even more proud of the extraordinary continuing vibrancy of the independence movement.

Blogging will resume very shortly. As several of you have noticed, there has been a great deal of technical work and stress testing done on the blog the past few days. This is almost complete: there may be something of a change in appearance shortly.

    ResDis 1:43Putin has honourable intentions towards Uzbekistan No – (but keep that fact to yourself 😉 –

    I am not in love with Putin – ultimately he is a politician (with a difference)- unlike the corrupt war criminals in the White House & Senate or their puppets in Downing street (determined to save money with the US controlled nuclear deterrent) and ‘friends’ France, Japan, Canada, Australia, with Mr Putin you gain WYSIWYG.

    I have clashed with Mr Putin and told him so. Thus far, he is the man, not the same as Cameron or Obama led by back-office ‘know-tanks’ or neo-cons/Zionists and MI5/6 terrorists. Vladimir is a one-man-band; speak to my face, sign the document and give me my pen back.

    ResDiss – I can only deal with that non-synchronous thinkin human. I am not interested in digging distorted, colored and perverted ‘history’ – no time for that. By keeping on the same precipitous path, we, the planet, humanity and next generations are doomed to nuclear confrontation.

    The UK/US ‘fail-tanks’ forecast or size up or call this seppuku a ‘MAD’ win or pay dirt and when cornered like rats will without doubt strew the chess pieces to extinction.

    The first sensible idea we’ve seen yet on halting the spread of Ebola in America has just been shut down for political reasons. The State of New York has now reversed its mandatory Ebola quarantine rule under pressure from the CDC and White House which both seem fervently determined to see Ebola spread across the United States.

    “After relentless opposition from the medical community and the Obama administration, New York is loosening its quarantine rules,” reported Boston.com at 9:30pm Eastern.


    Why would the CDC oppose possible quarantines, could it be they’re still using the threat of Ebola to frighten the public, a strange decision indeed.

    “How can anyone look at the past leaders of the UK in the previous century, all drawn from the same elite, same public schools, Oxbridge educated, born to rule and in the case of Cameron and Osborne distant relatives of an hereditary monarch, and call this democracy.”


    Lloyd George, Balfour, MacDonald, Chamberlain, Wilson, Callaghan, Thatcher, Major….


    Conclusion : you are not only barking but also an ignoramus.

    No thread without some anti-Semitism from poor, suffering Mary, that’s one of the house rules on this blog.

    In a humiliating u-turn, David Cameron has admitted that the UK may have to pay the £1.7 Billion EU bill. Previously the Prime Minister had told MP’s that he’d never pay the bill, but it looks like the EU has gazumped Mr Cameron by threatening to hold back the UK’s £3 Billion rebate.

    Although, I disagree with David Cameron on many issues, it would appear that the EU, can take a very firm stance, have we given to much power, and say, to Brussels?

  • Tony M

    They all meet the criteria in one way or another.

    Relative to ordinary people, they were all of an elite.

    David Lloyd (George) married into wealth. Was as crooked as they come, a warmonger.

    Macdonald was a figurehead, a Labour scalp, leading a Tory government, had zero real power.

    Chamberlain, Neville. ticks all the boxes, governing was the family business.

    Balfour: Ultra aristocratic titled background; Eton, Cambridge etc.

    I don’t think I need to go on.

    “I don’t think I need to go on.”

    Oh, please do.

    Thatcher, Major, Wilson, Callaghan?

    Oh, bugger it. One more, and sorry to have misled you. See above for Tony Blair, the Quartet Representative to the Middle East and all-round comic singer’s strong association with Laureate Student Processing Inc of Baltimore.

    See this for Bill Clinton’s (they employ him), George Soros’s (he’s an investor) and the student experience (“I meet people all the time who transfer here when they flunk out elsewhere,” says Arturo Bisono, 25, an agronomy major. “This has become the place you go when no one else will accept you.”. Hell, muchacho, you were expecting an education? Be happy that Senor Becker’s profits are healthy.

    “(Becker’s) a hustler, for sure,” says Michael Moe, the CEO of Woodside, California-based GSV Capital Corp., an investment fund that specializes in education. “Basically, he saw this gaping hole in the market and drove a truck through it.”

    Looks like Tony hitched a lift.

  • Habbabkuk (la vita è bella)

    Tony M

    And after you’ve dealt with the above, let’s go back to your “rebuttal”.

    “They all meet the criteria in one way or another.3

    Those criteria being, according to you :

    “all drawn from the same elite, same public schools, Oxbridge educated, born to rule”


    Lloyd George : poor beginnings; not public school; not Oxbridge;

    MacDonald : as above

    Chamberlain : not Oxbridge educated; family business; father a politician and minister;

    Balfour : I’ll give you Balfour. I meant Bonar Law (apologies).


    The thing is, you laid down criteria for all our leaders. When challenged, you change the goalposts (“crooked”, “figurehead”…).

    Conclusion: my conclusions stand. You are an ignoramus. Gamma minus!

    BTW, when dealing with Thatcher, Major, Wilson and Callaghan – you will, won’t you? 🙂 – please add Gordon Brown to the list.

    It didn’t harm Thatcher’s chances that she married a multi-millionaire, Dennis, who’d just sold the family paint business he’d inherited, not built, to ICI. The woman was an imbecilic crone, far from being liberating for those born with female genitalia and appendages, she exemplified and perpetuated paternalism. She might have been beyond the pale for most high Tories, maybe even you in your delusional condition might have found her common, but to the rest of the country she was county set establishment through and through.

  • Tony M

    You chose the list of names and my initial contention, though a generalisation, holds true for most of them and is correct, it is you who is now backtracking having made a fool of yourself.

  • Republicofscotland

    “RoS – The way Cameron uses his remaining power, it would probably be as well to give it all to Europe.”


    I’m afraid I’ll have to disagree with you there Ba’al, I don’t agree with David Cameron and Tory policies on welfare, Trident and many other right wing policies, but I don’t see the EU as a utopian overseer either.

    I know if you want to be part of the EU you must obey by the rules, but like the Scottish branch of Labour, there’s a lot of jostling over just how clear the rules are, and who can bend them and who can’t.

    Ultimately David Cameron will conform,to EU policy due to trade, and the CBI breathing down his neck, but where do you draw the line on EU power, that is another question.

    A pipe band played Amazing Grace at Cororal Cirillo’s funeral. Very stirring.

    Harper hijacked it.

    These words were said.

    Matthew 5:3-12 King James Version (KJV)

    3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

    5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

    6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

    7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

    8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

    9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

    10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

    12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.’

    “You chose the list of names and my initial contention, though a generalisation, holds true for most of them and is correct”

    Well, you’ve done a rather pleasing reverse ferret, haven’t you.

    Before, it was “all” of them and you laid down definite, cumulative criteria (public school, Oxbridge, “born to rule”, “drawn from the same elite”).

    Now, it is “most of them” and a “generalisation”.


    BTW, thanks for dealing with Thatcher. There’s still Wilson, Callaghan Major and Briwn to go.


    Conclusion : don’t worry. You’re not the first Excellence to have come a cropper trying to argue with me about facts. Better luck next time, or alternatively, be more careful.

    “Security has been beefed up after a Canadian soldier on ceremonial guard duty at the national war memorial was killed in a terrorist attack.

    The entrance to Horse Guards Parade is usually watched by two ceremonial guards on horseback and two on foot.

    However, since Monday soldiers in combat fatigues have been stationed there as part of a more “overt” presence, the Daily Telegraph reported.”

    Excellent! A small price to pay to deter Terrorists and Nutters.

    According to what I heard on radio 5, there’s a row brewing about the “three-line whip” on poppy wearing when appearing on the Beeb. Some celeb people are challenging this… why this year, I wonder? Interesting!

  • Tony M

    You introduced your highly selective (omitting Churchill, Eden, Macmillan) list of names after my comment, which was not constrained in any such way. It is you who have gone off half-cocked and come a cropper, as the names you thought were exceptions, are on the whole anything but, nor do any you might bizarrely interpret as exceptions, disprove the rule.

    My initial comment was on the wrong thread, it was an oblique response to the wholly discredited and discreditable ResDis(the fiend of Odessa) asking which of a list of Russians were democrats. The same game is just as easily played with British elected dictators over the same period of time, with unsurprisingly dismal conclusions as to their democratic credentials. Democracy could never produce such uniformity and conformity, or draw almost exclusively from such a limited selection, impossible, the odds are stacked against it.

  • Peacewisher

    @RoS: The EU have made a complete fool of David Cameron. He has been Prime Minister for over four years, and all that bickering about the rules just makes him look incompetent.

    Maybe the nation will rally behind him, as they did behind John Major when the EU banned the then BSE-ridden British Beef.

    I quite liked Stacy Herbert’s analogy on Keiser… no longer even Sheeple, but now more akin to B.F. Skinner’s conditioned pigeons.

    Canada: Decoding Harper’s Terror Game. Beneath the Masks and Diversions

    by Prof John McMurtry


    “Terrorist” stops the mind, and “jihadist” locks it in. Harper’s first invocation of the mind-stopper was, as always, strategic. Although blood tests for a substance-abuse driving offense are automatic, none was reported although the videos show every sign of chemical possession. Bibeau too went crazy and was dead with countless bullets through him before any questions could be asked. All such strange coincidences are part of the now familiar covert-state MO.

    Joining the Dots

    Since Harper publicly claimed an “act of terrorism” two days before the sensational Ottawa murder and crashing of Parliament and as soon as the Quebec killing occurred, questions arise. The normally zipper-lip Harper did so long before any forensic facts were in, and before the idea even occurred to anyone else. Why? Revealingly the federal security state had been running war games exercises depicting just such attacks weeks before the crazed murders (Canadian Authorities Ran War Game Drills Depicting ISIS Attack Scenarios Brandon Martinez, Global Research, October 24, 2014). Lone-wolf nut cases, killings out of nowhere, unknown motivators and arming, and the state leader most profiting from mutation of the demented murders into “terrorist acts” before anyone else – – who joins the dots? It is taboo to think through such situations, and this too is known beforehand. Sure enough within the day, the RCMP and CSIS get the new extraordinary powers they sought, and for the first time in office the robotic Harper is behaving with a warmth not even extended to his young son with whom he shakes hands in farewell. He is hugging opposition leaders in Parliament to show a new human side to complete the image makeover in motion.

    Harper is happy because he thinks his next election is saved. But the first forensic question in acts of murderous crimes is again never asked. The hypnotic trance of “terrorism” in sedate Ottawa holds the narrative unchallenged. Cui bono? Who benefits from these unbelievable closed-case murders in two days which have the media headlining “terrorism” and “anti-terrorist legislation” everywhere Canadians look, and Harper now as the strong hand in charge. The top banner headline of the weekend Globe screamed “How far should we go?”

    “You introduced your highly selective (omitting Churchill, Eden, Macmillan) list of names”

    Of course it was selective, you chump.

    It was selective because you claimed that all (repeat, all) UK leaders for the last century were “drawn from the same elite, same public schools, Oxbridge educated, born to rule”. The many names I gave demonstrated that your claim was erroneous and foolish.

    Even your reverse ferret is erroneous and foolish, as most of the PMs in the last century do not, in fact, meet the criteria you offered.

    PMs who did not, cumulatively, attend public school and Oxbridge, were not born to rule and were not drawn from any elite are in fact in the majority and not exceptions at all.


    I’m down grading you from gamma minus to “fail”. Sorry about that, but you brought it on yourself! 🙂

    Yes Peacewisher I see where you’re coming from, David Cameron isn’t lets say the best example of a Westminster PM, and I’m no big fan of Westminster, but I can just about see his point, in as much as he’s standing up for British interests in the EU.

    I must admit I’m not a big fan of the EU, to much bureaucracy.

    Then again as I mention in a previous comment, David Cameron, may have feigned outrage at the EU, to turn the public interest against the EU, in the run up to the proposed EU in out referendum.

  • Habbabkuk (la vita è bella)

    Tony M

    I was perhaps a little harsh in down grading you from gamma minus to “fail”, so I’ll give you a chance to get back uop to gamma minus.

    Here is a list of UK Prime Ministers since 1914.

    Please indicate which of them meet your cumulative criteria of “born to rule”, “public school”, “Oxbridge” and “drawn from the same elite”.

    Lloyd George
    Bonar Law

    A bonus of five marks if you are able to indicate whether the names you identify as meeting those four cumulative criteria constiute a majority or a minority.

    Moving the goalposts will result in failure.

    Off you go!

    Well Craig, if you want something to put a smile on your face when you do have a hangover this article in the Telegraph will do the trick.
    The Telegraph are almost defending Scottish Labour because of SNP tactics which have MK Ultra’d the politicians into doing what the SNP want.
    It’s brilliant.The SNP must be laughing their heads off at this.

    This PM business is interesting. Which ones appear to have ended their days with rather more money and assets than might otherwise have been expected?
