The answer is not 'More State'

The answer to the child-rape habit amongst Pakistani communities is not 'More State'. Children's Services provision has become a bit like the trenches of the Western Front - throw another ten thousand social workers into battle to secure two pubescent girls from gang rape. This is largely because all those social workers spend much of their time laying down paper trails to prove they're not guilty of anything however badly they screw up. It's just the way the Big State works - or rather, doesn't work. As Douglas Murray writes in the Speccie
Anyhow – if you care to study these two excruciating pieces of evidence for any future prosecution of contemporary Britain you will notice several things.  Firstly both of these highly paid dolts are kind enough to issue an apology for not stopping the incessant gang-rape of children.  Secondly you will notice that although they are willing to issue an apology for not stopping the habitual gang-rape of children, they do not think that it was their job to stop it or think it was partly their job but that it wasn’t their fault that they didn’t stop it.  Thirdly, naturally, they are very clear that they are not going to resign.  Fourthly comes the happy ending which is – yes, that’s right – the fact that ‘lessons have been learnt.’  Such a relief.  One might have worried that point four in the pro-forma ‘English council gang-rape apology advice handbook’ would be: ‘Say “nothing has been learnt and that the kids deserved it”.’
The extent to which English working class communities were self-sufficient - that is, self regulating and self policing as well as enabling mutualist welfare provision - is well told by the late Ralph Harris and Arthur Seldon. This independence was wilfully and deliberately destroyed by a young Labour party infected with Sovietism - they had no place for a class not dependent on the State. The result of a process that started with the 1911 National Insurance Act is the gang-rape of alienated, vulnerable girls by Pakistani gangs.

The Blair Years - Blood, Lies and the Sexual Exploitation of Children

Being a poor kid during the Blair years was distinctly hazardous. They either risked death, dismemberment and destruction from Blair's unlawful adventurist wars abroad or degradation and sexual exploitation akin to slavery at the hands of an alien fifth-column imported into Britain by Blair to destroy community cohesion. Having presided over the ruin and despoilation of so many young lives, it surely can't be long before the UN or the Nobel Prize Committee bestow an award for Humanity upon him. 

Between 1997 and 2013 Blair's Pakistanis did exactly what they were brought here to do - use their teflon legal status to undermine, subvert and irrevocably corrode the bonds, ties and responsibilities that tie together traditional working class communities in England. What they were doing was no wrong in the light of their perverse beliefs - their own Prophet (a hundred molecules in every pint of ale) himself sexually abused a nine year-old girl. Whilst police officers were keen and eager to pounce on every minor word or gesture that may have offended the Friday People, fear prevented them from intervening to protect the young, the weak, the vulnerable, the friendless, the alone and the powerless. Every one of those police officers gave the lie to the oath they took upon their appointment as constables - to exercise 'without fear or favour' their powers under the law. No wonder. They were - and are - Blair's Boys, as committed to mendacity, obfuscation, control, coercion and the undermining of social cohesion as is the blood-stained old pisspuddle himself. 

They should hang their heads in shame.

BBC gives airtime to dreary little fraud

It won't shock anyone much that the BBC is happy to give airtime to some dreary little fraud solely because he peddles his crooked snake-oil under the WHO banner. Such was a piece from this evening's news when a fake-scientist claimed the ban on indoor use of e-cigarettes was justified because they 'raised the level of nicotine in the atmosphere'. As this chiselling little crook is himself undoubtedly responsible for 'raising the level of CO2 in the atmosphere' he should probably go off and tie an airtight plastic bag around his head and spare us any more guff. 

How anyone can be fooled by the riverboat con-tricks of these spurious little men is beyond me - it's pointless demonstrating that nicotine as we encounter it is a biologically harmless alkaloid in the same class as caffeine, that the increase from an e-cigarette over the background level in the air is statistically insignificant or that these fraudsters have made their intentions clear by recently changing their aims from 'smoke free' to 'tobacco free' - two very different objectives. Like the anthropomorphic-originated climate change liars and fraudsters, they peddle lies, distortions, omissions and misrepresentations under the banner of the UN. 

A curse on the lot of 'em.

Another bloody weekend in the country

Cherie? It's me. No, in Astana .... in the Radisson; yes, they've given me the fifth and sixth floors again - Norman Foster's here too, we had dinner last night  ... yes, he's doing a new Peace and Humanity building, three hundred feet high. Look, I need Matrix chambers to do a spot of good for Nursultan - the poor fellow is being ragged rotten by the HR crowd ... what? .... no, not Human Resources, the other thing - for shooting fourteen protesters, no, shooting them ... he's given up the butter thing completely - hasn't boiled anyone alive in butter since 2007, he says ...yes, he wants to found a new college at Oxford and stay at Windsor with HM but they keep dragging up the shootings, and the butter thing, and playing polo with the heads of executed lawyers ... no, no, he loves British lawyers ... there's a decent fee involved, about two mill - it will get us that place in Scotland  .. you will? Champion!  ... Love you too! ...

One for the Scientists, or Ilkley Moor

This being Sunday, the 11.30 sung mass at the French Church in Soho is ever a pre-dim sum option. It will be packed, though - the congregation of fashionable young French professionals in London these days swamping the few elderly black-coated French women who used to attend. Jean Cocteau's mural of Roman soldiers, a surprise for visitors and one of my Secrets of London, always cheers me up. Anyway, a question for the scientists.

A website called Scientific Britain gives the maths behind the pint of water wonder; that is, the wonder that if you poured a pint of water into the sea in Suffolk, and waited a year or two, that you could pull a pint of water out of the sea anywhere in the world and it would contain a molecule from the original pint. If fact, the boffins tell us, it would probably contain 8,100 molecules from the original pint.

Say a Roman soldier drowned off the coast of Suffolk, his body taken to the bottom by the weight of his armour. eaten by the fish, and dissolved by the waves, every molecule of him, every drop of water, gramme of salt, pinch of protein would be distributed, broken down, circulated. It would evaporate and fall as rain, swelling the crops in the fields, dry as powdery dust on shorelines and be blown by the wind, turn from fish to bird to man and back again to molecule. The scientists can work it out, but I'll bet that I can't eat a slice of bread or drink a cup of wine without it containing a few molecules that once made up that Roman soldier. 

The wonder is that there are many more molecules in a single Roman soldier than there are cups combined of water and biomass on earth. It's almost miraculous.

Kermits can't change course - we can

Poor Msr Hollande is a man beset by problems of France's own making, each of which he seeks to blame on another nation. France's sclerotic economy is dragging down the Eurozone; it's the fault of the Germans. She can't apply sanctions against Russia by cancelling their new ships; this is the fault of the US. And her loss of all influence in Syria, since the 1920s a French zone of influence, is the fault of perfidious Albion. In fact, he says, by not supporting ISIS in overthrowing Assad we've actually made them stronger. It takes either powerful non-prescription drugs or Gallic hubris to believe something like that. 

In fact, Parliament's decision on Syria was one of the few things MPs can pride themselves on - and for which we can be proud of our MPs. Blocking Cameron's little adventure also stopped both the USA and France in their tracks. Hollande can't forgive us. He's burnt his boats with Assad, and it will take a new French president to salvage some sort of useful relationship. A stubborn, silly little socialist, pompous as a little bladder of flatus, he can't change course. And for us? Christopher Meyer sums it up neatly in the Telegraph
At this time and at this place in history, our national interest lies in stability and order, not in the pursuit of the last wisps of the Arab Spring. Yet, nor is it in our national interest that Isil should establish a caliphate athwart Syria and Iraq, a springboard for terrorism around the world and the unravelling of the frontiers of the Middle East. It follows, therefore, that we must support, by force where necessary, the integrity of Syria and Iraq, with regional allies such as Turkey and, yes, Iran and Russia. This, in turn, means that we have to stop working for the overthrow of President Assad and the Alawite ascendancy in Damascus.
I've always had the greatest regard for Willie Hague's intellect, a sharp contrast to the Prime Minister's obtuseness. Can the reason that Hague is no longer at the FO be that he supported Meyer's view, in opposition to his boss? If so, this would also explain Hague's needling provocation of the PM by failing to act over Bercow's new catering manager Commons Clerk, over which Peter Oborne expressed Cameron's anger

Cameron should take a lesson from Hollande's precarious situation on the dangers of not changing course. COLREGS require skippers to take all necessary action to avoid collision and ensure safety - 'standing on' is not a right, there are no rights; just responsibilities. And we don't care about Cameron's loss of face - he's expendable, the UK isn't.

EU provokes Mumsnet

The EU has ridden rough-shod over dairy farmers, fishermen, car restorers, traditional boaters and has left half the nation bathed in the Stygian green gloom of inefficient low-energy lamps, but has it bitten off more than it can chew in imposing feeble hoovers on the united forces of Mumsnet?

In a two-stage process under which all vacuum cleaners over 900w will be banned, the first tranche of Berlaymont fiddling with people's lives comes with a ban on Britain's most popular hoovers. As any hoover user knows, you need power on demand to suck efficiently for the half the time that the bag is over 50% full.

This is something my 30-year old VAX does perfectly - especially as I replaced the 1000w motor not a year ago. But then the EU doesn't care about encouraging machines that are so robust and well-designed that they don't need replacing every other year. I'm astonished they haven't made maintaining your own vacuum cleaner illegal yet, with the same legislation favouring the big global corporates that drives all the EU's restrictive laws.
