Glasgow Socialist *hole, now having to sell off their Buildings - What a dump!


A few years ago, Glasgow, as in Glasgow City Council (GCC), had come to an agreement after a lawsuit, to pay £500,000,000 to about 14,000 mostly female workers!

That's one helluva lot of money!  

Fancy that, a group of hard-core socialists, had been found to be discriminating against females . . . for years!  

Yea, that's right, the Left are your friends.  

Who in their right mind still believes this?  Particularly in this day and woke age; when the head of the Labour party, Sir Kier Starmer (Ed; What a name! And his middle-name is Rodney!), can't even define a women!

But coming back to the half a billion quid, it was said at that time, that Glasgow in 2019 would either delay the decision, or in the future, would need to start to sell its limited amount of assets - predominantly, land and buildings. 

Let's face it, in reality, that's really the only things that a local government own.


Glasgow City Chambers


City Chambers - Banqueting Suite

And now, just today, has come to fruition.

Now it seems, that several simply wonderful city buildings, built and paid for by the once, hard-working citizens, will have to be sold, and then leased back.  The two above could possibly be that way.  They are both magnificent!

Yet another sign, of the sheer, and utter incompetence of leftists, be they here in Scotland, Chicago, Philadelphia, or wherever they might be infested in.

Working class town, forced to do a woke experiment - Liverpool, England - It ends in Disaster!


Liverpool, England, UK

You just KNOW that this would happen.

The "car-free" day there, was such a disaster that it had to be cancelled by 14.00 that afternoon!



But on the other hand, the globalist, green, woke psychotics, will simply never give up!

Strange, that this over here in doomy Britannia, did not make any of the MSM's bulletins?  Did it?

Oh, but they'll say that it was ONLY Liverpool and that they had better things to report?  Really?  

The radical fascist left, have been going on about the overuse of cars, and the fact that we are all in this together, and will willingly submit ourselves to shelving the cars, and picking up bikes, skateboards, or walking, the great distance into towns, in order to shop, go to work, etc.

How wrong they were and are!

I'm back after a month of travels in Europe and will blog more on various awfulness that I see, but always in a hopeful way!

C u tomorrow.

Yes, we're an environmentalist, who also eats healthy; but please don't preach to me!

 


I get it!  And I certainly do NOT need Oxfam to lecture me, with their campaign for only buying second-hand goods during September.

But on the other hand, I've, like many others like me and my age, got it, for an effing long time!  We are not some Luddite, and I and others, care about our planet as well!  But the patronising by the woke, left, is now not only outrageous, arrogant and conceited; but also, counter-productive.

That old joke about a Vegan, who ALWAYS wants to tell you that they are a vegan, has come home to roost.  And more and more of the people I talk to, either in-person or online, are completely fed up with this lot!


Honestly, if  you want a laugh, please go into the Oxfam website (or any other alt-left / woke website) and see for yourself, the utter nonsense that they write and wish to be true for the world.

All of this that they want to foist on the world, only ends up ( and they no doubt wish this to be true), with some sort of authoritarian or totalitarian government in place; which naturally, would be run by themselves!


But there is, or I believe there can be; hope.


The Mango Tree (above), is a vegan restaurant, who have now finally decided, that they simply can not continue being a segregated eatery, and stay in business.




They will now not only serve vegan dishes, but also meat dishes as well.

Whilst I know, many of you will be laughing (I am!); on the other hand, I commend them for doing this (no doubt though, it is self-serving).

Like other restaurants / cafes that I've eaten in, who also have "mixed" menus, this may "force" or at least, enlighten their customers and may even give opportunities for us and "them", to communicate and discuss not only our differences, but what we have in common.

Something that I believe can ONLY be healthy.

More wokeness - This time for Travel - Priority Pass / Education / Etc

These appear to be self-explanatory!

Honestly, I've already blogged on some of the "woke" online, educational companies, and provided researched links, that showed that ethnics, specifically blacks, simply do NOT value educating themselves, in comparison to other groups - fact!



But they simply can not, the companies, get over themselves, and repeatedly show these people in the photos that advertise their services; it's laughable.


But now,
Priority Pass, that rip off of a airport lounge access service, are also guilty of this.

The above is like a "double whammy" as they also show a black jogger!

Please go here, to see that this is rare, compared to other groups. And you go even go here, to see that even that left-wing rag, the Guardian in the UK, accept this as a fact!

The mind boggles, and one can only hope, that this continues to backfire on these woke, racist companies.

This month, back from Europe, it's a mess there as well. Also, Socialist Glasgow, Scotland, is still a dump!

 


That's correct, right in front of a "Cash Generator" shop.  

For you who do NOT know, they are a pawn shop, though this neighbourhood is in the West End of Glasgow - hardly a poor area. In fact, the link provided that directs to Trip Adviser, actually gives it 4.5 stars!  Equally, we are in the midst of a Bin Men strike, which seems to become worse each week. 

This is such the state of modern Glasgow, where after decades of single party, socialist governing from Labour, there now exists an SNP government, that is every bit as bad!

You can't make this shite up, can you?

They STILL vote for them, still!

As you can see with the photo montage (Ed; Whoa!  What a word!), it's a dump, and may soon get even worse; if that can happen, with further action to take place in September as well.. 






As the link shows, Glasgow is ONLY the "third dirtiest city IN THE WORLD", but who knows, there's always hope to be numero uno!

Here's hoping!

More this week on all the insanity, and my recent three weeks in Europeland.

In Europe right now, and it's crazier & crazier . . . please try Remix news online.

 


If you given up all hope for the world, or at least for the MSM and their perennial bias; please try Remix news (I believe I've said this before).

Whilst it may be even MORE depressing, at least it is real, documented and tells a radically different story than the scum in the BBC, et al, do.

For example, please see here; where you will find, that our fair, democratic, "we believe in free speech" Germans, have effectively banned the AFD Party from speaking on the public TV channels there.  Please keep in mind that the AFD, have about 10 - 15 percent of the seats in the German parliament; or 81 from 736 seats to be exact (11.05%)

They just love free speech, those Germans; naturally as long as my free-speech is their idea of free speech.


By the way, the AFD is still lead by Alice Weidel, apparently a right-wing bigot; but who is ALSO a lesbian, a fan of Margaret Thatcher, and is fluent in Mandarin!  Sounds like an ignorant hick to me as well!

AFD, is actually a completely sound, reasonable, and patriotic / anti-Globalist party, but are described by that ever reliable rag; Wikipedia, as "It is positioned on the radical right, a subset of the far-right,"

Ah, I see now, not just the "Far-Right", but the "Radical Right" now.  I'm just so well informed now!  Ha!

Later this week, we will look at all the BMEs (ethnics) on German TV; particularly the advertisements; and you thought that this only happened in the US or UK!

Socialist, paradise of Glasgow, Scotland - More ripoff Car Parking Prices

 


That's right, the prices have "ONLY" gone up from £85 to £98, a mere 15+%.

Yet, it was only a few years ago, I believe 2015, when Glasgow District Council introduced these charges, that the price was £50 per year.

So, in my ever so crude, simple calculations, they've risen 96%, which amounts to almost 16% a year, for seven consecutive years!

What a rip off, as at the time, GDC promised us of more bike lanes, more areas for motorcycles, more enforcement of who actually parks in the older, West End neighbourhoods, etc, etc, - NONE of this has actually happened.

On my street, the parking lines / double parking lines look like something out the Third World!

Equally, if you do go into the link above, to the Council's simply awful website, you can note that they are STILL mentioning a fire that affected Garnethill residents!  This was actually referring to a fire in the nearby Glasgow School of Art.

Please go here to the BBC's summary, that shows the timeline about the School of Art's multiple fires; the last being in 2018!  Hey, that's 4 damn years ago!

Glasgow, please update your effing website; you simply suck!

All this talk about China. Have you tried their online news? A look at "Global Times"

 


I've looked at this before and having been to China several times, I was always, particularly in Hong Kong, struck by the accuracy and relevance of their news.

When I was there a few years ago, I was surprised by all of the bikes and bike rental firms (with corresponding Apps) that were literally littering the streets.  A year later, I saw a report, that the Authorities there, had had enough, and would clear the streets of these bikes and seek a different method of bike rentals to the populace in Beijing!  Bang, it was solved, but more importantly, it was FACTUALLY reported on their news.  News that was non-elitist and for the general public; no spin, no opinion - News!


Whatever your opinion is about this authoritarian state (we have one as well here in the UK as well as in Biden's America), their press seems to be much better at printing facts, particularly when they are aimed at local problems, that have national consequences.

Look below for an example:

Here:

This is from the official news of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) and is a fact-laden piece, that is now, a rarity in the USA and  UK.  At the same time, the current rage for the Chinese people to have convenience food seems natural, and I bet, that Pot Noodle, doesn't have anything on the Chinese version!

How far we have slipped.

More Right posts this week, but 1st, Microsoft's attitude to those poor Yakima women

 




Take a look at this nonsense, from my start-up page with Windows 10, this morning.

Two shots here, one the "broad picture", the other is the text I wish to show you.

You can't make it up! This is how low and woke that they ALL are nowadays, and leads me to believe, that all right-minded people really MUST drop out from the mainstream, NWO thing, and ONLY do business in a completely, separate world or economy.

What do they even mean by this?  "Women in Yakima"?  

Yes, there are women who exist there, in fact, the population is just under 100k, with a metro area of nearly a quarter of a million; with 50.7% being indeed female.

So just what is Microsoft's point here? You mean to tell me, that those (approximately) 50,000+ women, have never had an opportunity until 2022, to tell their "stories"?  

Really?

Have you ever heard of books, talking, the phone, the internet (that is well over 30 years of age), etc, etc, etc.

Good God, I must've missed something here.  I didn't really think that these women are cave-dwellers, and have had to wait until some White Messiah from Microsoft, in order to be saved, so that they can communicate their stories.

Utterly shameful message.

British Defeatism - "World" Gin Day & Orwell's critique

We do this so well in the UK, that is bashing our own, never saying a single decent word about the country we live in, ALWAYS deferring to foreigners, etc, etc, etc.

                       

This leads me to a book, or pamphlet should I say, by George Orwell entitled Notes on Nationalism (Ed; Recommended Reading!).  Where it states that the English, left-wing, intelligentsia of the 1930s and 1940s, would simply NEVER say anything good about our country; whilst the European ones would (as in saying something positive about their own country).

They would draw on experiences and positive points from EVERY SINGLE COUNTRY IN THE WORLD, but would have no time whatsoever about the works of genius just down the block!

This brings us to the the good old BBC again, and the normally reliable Saturday Kitchen show; broadcast every Saturday from 10.00 to 11.30.  I try to watch it every Saturday, or at least keep up with it via the iPlayer application.

And yet again, they did not let me down; with their internationalist, self-loathing view of the UK.

Apparently, it was World Gin Dayor something to do with Gin, which by chance the UK LEADS THE WORLD IN!  It is not even very close.  We either have more Ginneries(?) or drink more, or export more, than any other country in the world.  

FACT!

Why not celebrate it?

So when they had their "expert" on Gin on the show, they naturally showed either an Irish person or an American; who is no doubt based in London.

What was even more galling, was that the expert, some wokesterin called Carmen O'Neal (who was naturally foreign, and owns a London-based (of course!) gin factory called 58 & Co.), decided to highlight ONLY(!) non-British gins!  

I despair!   Why?  We know, or at least should know, that we in the UK in all four corners, have been doing Gin better than anyone in the world (as said before), the last few years.  BUT NOT A SINGLE UK GIN WAS ON OFFER on this show.

After all, even in 2017, the UK was the biggest exporter in the world, but let's not celebrate this fact, but let's talk about shite Gins from around the world!  

You can't make this up, but to an ignorant Canadian, who probably has only ever lived in Central London with her Gin company, why should she celebrate us and our land. I could vomit!

Michele Obama's new book? Already half-price; BEFORE it hits the Shops!

 


Just received an email this morning, and lo and behold, this simply horrible human being has decided to infect the world again, with her horrid woke, world-view.  In the words of Waterstones in the UK (my emphasis in bold):

In 2018, Michelle Obama’s global bestseller Becoming recounted the former First Lady’s inspirational journey from her Chicago childhood through a successful career as a US attorney and on to her years in the White House.

Now, four years later, Michelle demonstrates how readers can utilise the lessons she has learned from her eventful life to build meaningful relationships, find community within difference and navigate change with confidence and kindness. Most of all, she describes how when we ‘light up’ for others, we illuminate the world around us with understanding, insight and love.

Written with good humour, candour and grace by one of the world’s most widely respected public figures, The Light We Carry is the perfect book of comfort and reassurance for uncertain times and an ideal gift for those you hold closest in your heart.

A truly unmissable literary event, The Light We Carry is published on Tuesday 15 November and is available to pre-order now at half price.

And I can now, simply vomit!  This is simply unbelievable but OTOH, it is completely believable, considering the unwashed morons who were bamboozled by her utter contempt for them, for whitey, for tradition, etc, etc. 

I am never for burning books, but I've now discovered some half-price kindling that I can use in my chimney this winter.

Already an early contender for my Worst of the Year awards!

English Heatwave? And the winner is . . . not London . . . but Coningsby? Where the hell is that?

Yes!  You betcha!  It wasn't London after all that finally grabbed the "Hottest Place in the UK" award, but dear and dreary Coningsby, right there in northeast England.


For those who don't know what I am talking about, you should have been here in the UK the last two weeks, when every other effing minute the MSM and their cronies, were going on about a heat record that was forecasted to be broken!

It was fuckin unbearable to listen to!  Even when several weeks ago, some had the nerve to say that it would be 42 degrees here (Celsius); below is a quote from UK Weather Forecast (Facebook page):

We’ve seen further upgrades on the latest GFS output for Tuesday with a larger area of 42’s now showing in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire.

In the end, they got their record, though at 40.3, it barely cracked forty and was nowhere near 42!

And?  This freakish weather, which was based on a mammoth high pressure system from Spain and North Africa, lasted a grand total of 2 days!


It doesn't even come close to other heatwaves, like the most recent one (above) in 1976, that lasted for weeks and was nearly as hot.  But the elephant in the room is obvious; why was it so bloody hot then, with less CO2 in the air, compared to now? SURELY, it should be even HOTTER in this day and age; right?

Yes, it is hotter to a degree, AT TIMES now, but that is all.  And everyone should know, that overall, for the last 24 years the Earth HAS NOT WARMED.  And still at the present time, there are record cold temperatures in the Southern hemisphere.

Google (or preferably, use an alternative search engine) this if you don't believe me. OR, please use the excellent website, Not a Lot of People Know, where you can actually find real science.

Wimbledon; globalised, woke, homogenised - EVERYTHING is the same nowadays


Years ago, it was always a joy to watch the Mixed Doubles final of Wimbledon that always occurred AFTER the Men's Final on the last Sunday of the championships.

But then, only a few years ago, I noticed that this had ended?  I don't know exactly what year, but it could only have been in the last five or so.

What a shame!  It was just so relaxing, and then I thought - They've conformed to EXACTLY like the other majors in tennis (at least to the best of my knowledge).

Then last year, the great Roger Federer, did a self-video tour of the last and final middle-Sunday, as this year, they decided to play on the first Sunday*.  But now that has ended, as the recent Wimbledon was the first (ever?) not to have the first Sunday free from play - just like the other tennis majors. . . again.

* Why it is called "middle-Sunday", I will NEVER know!  It is the "first" Sunday, not the middle one!?

More of the same, homogenised, "just like every other major tournament in tennis" type of feel; doesn't seem like "Wimbledon" then, does it?


Equally, back in 2001, the courts were slowed down, after all, Pete Sampras was dominating, and we can't have that, can we?  So the courts were now to be played slower, so "everyone" had a chance to win.  It just wasn't fair before, was it?  Just like the other majors. . .again!

More of the same; a standard product, ad nauseum.

Equally, this year, as well as last, the officials started to have on-court interviews after nearly every match played; with someone truly awful from the BBC.  You know, the same questions, answers, et al, to those great queries, such as:

* How did you play?

* Tell us your feelings?

* Are you looking forward to playing . . . in the next round?

Simply ridiculous and simply boring but to the inane crowds, divine!?

Equally, the Wimbledon committee and the agonisingly woke BBC, had a love-affair, with the runner-up, Ons Jabeur, from Tunisia - of course for their obvious, woke feelings.  If I could've earned a penny for every instance that I heard that she was Arab; I'd be retired now!



They, Wimbledon, then had the audacity, to put her first onto the first Monday's schedule, on Court No. 1, AHEAD of the current World Number 1, Iga Swiatek (who had won the French Open, and was the current Number 1 player in the world).

It was sickening and embarrassing.

But has anyone asked the question; why?

To me, Wimbledon has been around for some time, and it will be around for some time more.  There was no need whatsoever for this to occur, but it did.


And it's just so easy to see why, the graphic says it all. 

We want no competition, no variety, no individualism; everything on every continent, will be the same; full stop, period!

Microplastics and the Virus - Harmful? They are STILL trying to scare us!

 


In my monthly review of some of the worst crap that I see being read, in certain echelons of the press, I came across this piece of insanity.

Yes, now it is written that viruses can live on these pieces of plastics for a long time, thus with us ingesting these things, we would then be susceptible to all manner of diseases, etc, etc, ad nauseum!  

This is simply ridiculous!  Even if this were to happen, I have 100% confidence in my Immune System to conquer all.

Equally, if this pack of lies was so, then why aren't we dropping like flies the last 40-50 odd years from "new fangled" viruses, as micro-plastics have been around for some time; history?  Please explain that one to me.

If anything, we are living longer and longer nowadays, aren't we?

But to be pedantic, go to this link to read all about the farcical, bit of plastic in the Pacific patch - a farce, but note the article on Wikipedia; is actually truthful at times.  No,  you can NOT see this patch, despite what the MSM will tell you.

It is only a non-calculable trace element, when compared to the size of the ocean as a hole; calculations are something like:

93 - 230 thousand tonnes of plastic v 1,450,000,000,000,000,000 tons, being the weight of the oceans.

So, just what is their real motive - it's obvious.

This week - Ukraine, part of the EU? Really? They've just banned opposition parties!



Ah, so we want Ukraine to be part of the EU now; really?

So much so, that we even invited Zelensky to speak to the hoards of leftist vegans at the Glastonbury Festival this weekend; but unknownst to this collection, of ignorant millennials, him and his cronies have finalised their banning of 11 political parties in Ukraine.



And not only that, they've seized their assets as well!   I quote:

In addition to legally banning the party’s activities, the court also stated that the party’s property and assets will be confiscated by the State Treasury. 

What about the basic tenets that a country should follow in order to be part of this beloved (sic) organisation?  Look here:

The European Union's fundamental values are respect for human dignity and human rights, freedom, democracy, equality and the rule of law. 

I thought one of them was the basic right of political address and free speech?  Boy was I wrong!

And I bet that not only have you not heard about this from the MSM, but also, if you were to point this out, you would no doubt be called a Fascist, Putin-Lover, et al.

More English footballers in the news the last week, for having some car problems!

Yes, it seems that this just so intelligent athletes, just can not either have their "motor" licensed, insured, or what ever, but the problem, is the wrist slapping that they recieve.

Take this for instance.

All this double-barrelled surname got, was a 1,500 quid fine!  Unbelievable.

You only have to troll the internet, and find more of this utter scumbags to find that they are laughing at us.

Solution?

This reminds me of what happens in Germany, when these types of offences are committed, believe me it IS different.




Please go here!  Correct, they fined him almost HALF A FUCKING MILLION EUROS!

As this fucking idiot said; 

"Bild" reported that Reus did attend driving lessons when he turned 18 but never completed a driving test. Instead, he apparently took to the streets without a valid license. "I decided, back then, to go down this path," he told the newspaper. "I can't really understand the reasons myself, in hindsight."

The Reason? The fines are based on the amount that the perp earns.  In this case, his club fought like hell, not to divulge just how much Marco actually made, until the judge ordered them to.

Why can't we bring this in here into the UK?

Scottish National Party supporters - Responses to Idiots - I despair

 

A recent Facebook discussion, just shows that there are no rational supporters of the SNP or for Scottish Independence.  It went something like this:

1) A sitting SNP MP wrote, that Brexit is the reason why we have expensive Petrol (They actually said this!)

Brexit, according to them, caused the exchange rate of the pound to dollar to fall, thus resulting in oil / gas being more expensive to import.  And they actually had the dishonest nerve, to talk about the $2.00 exchange rate in 2008!????   Implying that before Brexit,  this was the rate of exchange!

2) I wrote, with a link here, that this is utter bullshit.  That the rate of the pound v dollar, has stayed in the range of $1.25 - $1.40 since 2016/17, 3 YEARS BEFORE BREXIT! 



3) Then, there was a pile on, with one moron, talking about Balance of Payments, Trade, etc, in an effort to sound intelligent - NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with the exchange rate!  

Isn't that interesting, these geniuses did not have a clue about the actual Exchange Rates of the last several years, but you know, who cares?!  But this MP's argument was ONLY about the Exchange Rate!

4) I naturally responded that I too, have an Honours Degree in Economics, but "who cares" if I do.  A 5 year old could look up the rate of exchange at the time of Brexit, and come to the conclusion that our current Rate of Exchange is more or less, the same!

As with all cases in a Facebook "debate", I chose to only have one rebuttal, as the old adage, that the more you argue with idiots, the more you sound like one.

If I wanted to say more, I would have said something to this effect:

The price of petrol has NOTHING to do with either the exchange rate or Brexit; what part don’t you understand?  Currently, there is a worldwide increase in petrol prices, America, Germany, everywhere is suffering from this, unless you’re implying that Brexit caused this as well?  If so, that is borderline psychotic thinking.
