Another slap from Nanny (footbally Moyse bollocks).

AS I’M NOT a follower of that tediously over-hyped game known as football I missed the initial outburst of horror that came when a manager of some club made some post-interview comment to some female journo which rocked the whole of western civilisation to its rapidly-decaying foundations because it was (don’t wait for it) sexist and “wholly unacceptable”…

There, there, children, the Trigger Nanny will take care of you.

Now it appears this insidious nannying culture of trigger warnings has already arrived — not so much at British universities (though that will be inevitable) but in the hallowed and righteous halls of the broadcast media. There used to be a thing called the watershed at nine o’clock, after which time more adult material could be shown. We didn’t need to be given explicit warnings about filth and violence.

You won’t find any nannying in my book.

Civilisation – who needs it? More in The Fortnightly Review

EVEN WHEN IT IS making one of its generally excellent documentaries on art or history the BBC these days cannot help but have its presenters slip in a bit of propaganda promoting multiculturalism, diversity or mass immigration. In the first episode of a recent series, Art of France, Andrew Graham-Dixon took us through Seine-Saint-Denis, a northern suburb of Paris, to view the “truly varied faces of this modern nation”, ie, the mainly Muslim faces of North Africa. France, he later said, has always been “a nation of mongrels,” which is just a version of the “nation of immigrants” mantra repeated by those who usually don’t live in areas populated by immigrants but are happy for others to do so.

Sucks To Your Revolution – Annoying the Politically Correct

suckstoyourrev

At last – an antidote to the relentless stream of leftist whingeing on Facebook, Twitter and the media, Sucks To Your Revolution is a selection of my articles for the Currente Calamo column of The Fortnightly Review.

Whether it’s the increasing bands of prodnoses trying to control what we eat, think, say or learn, or the phoney revolutionaries like Russell Brand inciting us to turn the world upside down for the sake of some vague socialist utopia, Sucks To Your Revolution spares none of them.

Articles include:

Stop the March of Cupcake Fascism (yes, eating cupcakes now officially identifies you as a fascist)
Sucks to Your Revolution (the bien pensants wring their hands over the immiserated classes)
Sunnis, Shias and the Religion of Peace (say no more)
The Unintended Horses of Consequence (the EU, Romania and the horsemeat scandal)
Clowns against the Stagnant Quotidian (the Brand buffoon)
Gok Wan’s Bangers (Aussies, boobs and unfunny comediennes)
Kristallnacht in Slow Motion (the growth of acceptable antisemitism).

Plus a new look at Chesterton’s forgotten 1915 classic, The Flying Inn, with its prescient theme of the attempted Islamisation of Britain.

It’s available now in the Kindle Store – Sucks To Your Revolution – at £1.99.

 

The Panic Button – #18 of In The World: The Clarkson Poems #TheClarksonPoems #poetry #Clarkson #TopGear

THE PANIC BUTTON

A friend last week had a little lunch.
The Archbishop of Canterbury is found
wondering about sabre-toothed tigers.
Having your heart bombed by the Germans
with the same intensity as the Great Plague
is an unexpected windfall. I’m worrying
about a partially eaten hamburger
and tooth cancer. I’d very much like to blame
everybody over 40, speed humps
and lunatics. It’s like being Enid Blyton
chasing ragamuffins in the front room.
Life is better than watching grandad in a bath
and Granny didn’t worry about that.
She wouldn’t have been allowed stress counsellors.

Countryfile’s cuddly view of the countryside. #Countryfile #BBC

countryfile

Why, when it comes to saving our wildlife, are skylarks and lapwings so much less important than the badgers and foxes which are among their deadliest enemies? In short, Countryfile acts as the flagship for a sentimental and largely urban view of the countryside — as a pretty place full of cuddly foxes and badgers whose only enemies are cruel hunters and greedy farmers.
