Hi,

I wonder what % of the bums on seats, at the opening ceremony, were funded by the person sitting there, together with their expenses – my guess is about 20% so I guess this carnival of expenses was for 80% freeloaders from around the world!



I doubt many of the seats will be funded by the occupants for any of the events with perhaps the highest % being 100yd. final and the finals of the 220, 400, 800 & mile also the Marathon perhaps dicus, high jump and long jump and also a couple of the relay races (egg & spoon, sack race etc.)


The rest is just hype and contrived show business to justify a self serving elite stuffing their hands into YOUR pocket to take all they can get away with. A mammoth tasteless gorging at the public trough!

As you might imagine having been a keen participant in sport I am utterly disinterested in watching others – I don’t even understand how pornographers make a living and clearly that represents the worlds most popular excercise albeit to many it is akin to sport, a game played to win and a game of two halves where half the participants seem to want tyo skip the first half!

I watched very little of the opening tasteless, costly debacle!


I found the bits of it I clicked into before clicking out for fear of up chucking to be brilliantly orchestrated, marvellously choreographed, excellently organised whoooops I’m about to up chu……

The ONLY part worse than the jumbled story line confusing cacophany of over statement, excess of participants and inept communistic flaggelation of any form of leadership as the ‘wurras was praise’ was, if not poor old McCartney who without his BullS*** detector with the death of Lennon has been a wealthy embarrassment (but weren’t The Beatles great!).

Yes – you’ve guessed it the worst party was – Just as with The Jubilee The BBC.

Not content with the tedium of 6 hours of extravaganza we all have to endure the foolish drivellings of the BBC on every broadcast as they sell this tasteless twaddle.

I have lost ALL interest in the sports on which the Olympics are founded – NOT on PC but on excellence in a bit of running, a bit of leaping and some throwing – so that is about two dozen events over maybe 2 or 3 days – the rest is just silly!

I hope someone enjoys it as lets not forget Canada has only just finished paying for The Vancouver Games and look what it did to Greece! Talk about a legacy!

 
I believe one blogger hit the nail on the head with accuracy and perspicacity as follows:
 

OLYMPICS OPENING CEREMONY:

Britain stays within a tradition begun by Adolf Hitler and cemented by the Beijing fascists.

Politicisation added to the shameless commercialisation of the Games
Twitter being overloaded at 20:30 BST, I gave up on avoiding the Olympics. As I had a very close female chum taking part in Danny Boyle’s opening extravaganza, it seemed an excellent idea to go Adrienne-spotting. A classic southern French storm was brewing, and looked as if it was timed perfectly to black out the Opening Ceremony on the Freesat-cum-Murdovision deal we have in our holiday home here. So all the portents were in place.
There is something about muddled British understatement that has always made me both proud and amused at the same time. Boyle having largely used volunteers for the Bolympics opener, it occurred to me that it must therefore be an unqualified success: had he used professionals, it would’ve been merely a qualified success. There are many etymological clues helping to explain our amateurish incompetence as a nation. We also say something is “perfectly dreadful”, which would sum up Dunkirk in 1940 a treat: a dreadful cockup perfectly saved in time for it to become the stuff of propaganda legend. Or put another way, another bunch of overpaid Sir Herberts in Whitehall saved yet again by the native entrepreneuralism of a seagoing Island race.
Well, the Ceremony wasn’t blacked out down here. But I wish it had been.
Let me begin by saying what was terrific about it. First, all the filmic bits: they played to Boyle’s strengths as a man who understands the coup of big ideas, and taking the piss out of ourselves. The Queen, James Bond, Rowan Atkinson and Chariots of Fire: they were all perfect targets, and brilliantly executed. Second, the pyrotechnics and the choreography: absolutely outstanding, and the right sort of spectacle for such an occasion.
But the rest of it was the most overtly politicised display of cliches and right-on bollocks in Olympic history. A few examples will suffice to underpin my point.
There were the toffs in tall top hats exploitin’ yer strugglin’ workers while putting up Satanic chimneys. (Why were some of them black? Not one of them would’ve been black in 1830.)
There were Suffragettes, earnestly carrying demo banners as they paved the way for a future in which women voters fell for Nick Clegg on the basis of one puerile televised political debate.
There was the NHS, shining bright in its perfection, but then suddenly under attack from J K Rowling nasties.
The Union Flag, firm as ever….despite the obvious fact of the United Kingdom falling apart under the hammer of Alex Salmond and mad bankers.
And of course, we couldn’t get away without Carnaby Street, Swingin’ London, multiculturalist music, and deaf kids singing the national anthem. It was challenged folk meet rap drivel in Kinks Who Kings Road extravaganza. It was rubbish.
Bits of it, in fact, were impenetrable rubbish. The French voice-over – WTF was that about? A tribute to Dan Hannan’s multilingual talents, perhaps? It is always a bad sign when BBC anchor-gobs like Huw Edwards have to explain what’s going on: “This is I K Brunel, this is a tribute to those killed in the London bombings, these are the Olympic rings forged by the Industrial Revolution”…and so on and so on. Show not tell, Danny – show not tell.
The mess wasn’t helped by braindead BBC commentaries…”Yes, it’s a history lesson…forging moments that will live with us forever…wonderful rendition…This is what it’s all about, young people from around the world traing for this big moment….Reminding us of the place where it all began, Greece…”. Did you see anything in it that made an even oblique reference to the original Greek Olympic ideal? Did you see a single thing in it referring to hurdles, throwing things and long jumps?
I wanted so much for this Opening Ceremony to do the business, and set Britain apart from other Olympics hosts. I am a huge fan of Danny Boyle’s movies, my mate was taking part, I felt that true British creativity could set a new direction more in keeping with what the Games used to represent. But it fell far short of even my most mediocre expectations.
Had Hitler had the technology in 1936, we would’ve seen Jewish financiers with false noses waving devalued currency around (‘Judischkonfetti’), massed regiments of Stürm Abteilung smashing shop windows, a gigantic Reichstag fire in centre stage, and a synchronised display of Nazi Mädschen being humped by black-uniformed SS officers. The inability of both the organisers and Doyle himself to make this deadly link depresses me. Even more depressing is that – I just know it – whole regiments of trolls and faux patriots will, when I post this piece, completely fail to grasp what on Earth I’m on about.
“Keep politics out of sport” was a cry of the Right during the 1960s: a mantra that I saw at the time as an excuse for appeasing unpleasant regimes. Half a century later, I am shouting this slogan at the top of my voice. Marx said, “In the end, everything is political”. The misguided designers and creators of this Olympics Opening Ceremony clearly agree with him.

Let none of us forget it was The Nazi Games in Berlin thaty rampped up the hype by inventing the torch relay and for its day few did showmanship better than Alolph Hitler’s goons – no wonder The EU is so keen on the event!

#G0654* – Dr. Richard NORTH gets an accurate review!

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 15/06/2012

#G0654* – Dr. Richard NORTH gets an accurate review!
.

Hi,

good to see Richard getting some of the acclaim he so richly deserves for the accuracy of his research and the courage to follow, expose and present the facts – whether popular or not.
https://i1.wp.com/www.eureferendum.com/images/Durham.jpg
Having watched the progress of developement of the book from an aim to commemorate and then through research the progressive surprise that became the core of the revelations of the book.

The novel manner of developing the book and drawing out the facts to form the well cross referenced detail in the book was interesting for a serious history book, providing detail through the use of the internet and the values of blogging.

Well done Richard.

Never was so little owed . . .

The Many Not The Few The Many Not The Few
As you grow up, you learn that some of the heroes that you believed in as a child were just myths or fairy stories. The blunt truth is that Roy of the Rovers did not play for a real team called The Rovers – he was just a comic book hero. And so it is with the Battle of Britain

IF you are a child of the early post-war years who re-enacted dogfights with your toy Spitfires over the bomb damage, it may come as a shock to learn that the reality is that the battle was not won by “the Few” in the skies of the south-east, no matter what Winston Churchill said.
It was about the many, and it was about the whole country.
Political scientist, author and renowned eurosceptic Dr Richard North was surprised to discover that history was wrong when he started a blog to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the battle in 2010.
His postings did not seem to fit the established view of history.
His new book, The Many Not The Few: The Stolen History of the Battle of Britain, has grown out of that blog. It is controversial, debunking what he sees as a myth that Britain was saved by a handful of fighter pilots, brave as they may have been.

Next Tuesday, at Waterstone’s in Durham City, he presents a free lecture on his theories.
It was Churchill who was the first myth-maker about the battle, saying on August 20, 1940: “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.”
But so many were involved in winning the battle. For example, the country relied on coal to fuel its industry and its war effort. That coal was mined in the North-East by Bevin Boys and transported by colliers down the North Sea coast – known as “E-Boat Alley” – to the London Docks.

Not only did these mariners have to contend with the Germans, but they were at the mercy of the weather. One company alone lost 13 colliers on this run.
Churchill’s comments suggest that the few were just fighting the war in the Home Counties. Yet some of the first German bombs to hit England were in the South Bank Road area of Middlesbrough, and in June 1940, bombs fell on the Transporter Bridge.
On August 15, German Air Fleet 15 began raiding the north of England from its bases in Stavanger, Norway, and Aalborg, Denmark. Most of the targets lay between the Tyne and the Humber and German aircraft had to fly 400 to 450 miles to reach them.
The first wave of bombers was intercepted off the Farne Islands by 12 Spitfires from RAF Acklington in Northumberland.
The German bombers had planned to fly across the coast south of the Tyne to attack the North Yorkshire airfields, but they made a navigational error. Spitfires, assisted by Hurricanes, broke up the bombers, but some still managed to hit Newcastle and Sunderland until they were forced home after British reinforcements came from RAF Catterick and RAF Usworth.
A second wave of German bombers that night crossed the coast at Flamborough Head and caused severe damage to RAF Driffield, although many bombers were shot down.
These were the first of many raids in the north.
So all conceivable occupations were involved in the battle, as were civilians in all parts of the country – Little Burdon and Bishopton, villages on the outskirts of Darlington, were hit by high explosive bombs in August 1940 at the height of the Battle of Britain.
But does it matter if history has got it wrong? Dr North says it does because it alters our whole reading of the war.
The traditional view is that “the Few” saved the many from a military conquest by the Germans. But what if Adolf Hitler was really targetting the many, not the Few?
What if he was not trying to win a military battle involving the Few, but he was really trying to win over the hearts and minds of the many?
What if his real aim was not to defeat the Few, but to persuade the many that Britain should be neutral and withdraw from the war?
Churchill, of course, needed the brave Few to be a beacon to inspire all the British people to take up the war effort; Hitler just wanted the British people out of the way.

If Dr North’s reading is correct, we need to look at the Second World War in a very different light.

#G0467* – 29-Apr-2011 The WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 29/04/2011

#G0467* – 29-Apr-2011 The WEDDING ANNIVERSARY of 29-Apr-1945

Hi,

probably one of the most bizarre and unpleasant marriages of history – beyond such mythological marriages of The Unfortunate EUropa who was beguiled by her Father Zeus and led to her marriage on a bull which transpired to be her Father who then raped her.

Sounds a bit like The EU – Britain dragged on a raft of Bull to a multiple partner marriage and then gang raped and stripped of assetts, borders, values, dignity and self determination!

The good thing about Hitler’s marriage was, I guess, that though it took place early on the 29th. April 1945 and was celebrated by a Champagne breakfast of some of the most evil people in history – it lasted little more than a day as on the 30th. April 1945 Hitler shot himself aged 56. Having poisoned his pet alsatian Blondi and her pups – his new wife Eva Braun took a Cyanide capsule to willingly take her own life with her husband.

Adolf Hitler died with no known or acknowledged, claimed or suspected progeny.

Hitler only stayed with them for half an hour, before withdrawing to his study accompanied by Traudl Junge to dictate his private and political wills.”

Source: Ronald Pawly. Hitler’s Chancellery: A Palace to Last a Thousand Years. 2009. pg. 148.
Adolf, from Last Will:

“As I did not consider that I could take responsibility, during the years of struggle, of contracting a marriage, I have now decided, before the closing of my earthly career, to take as my wife that girl who, after many years of faithful friendship, entered, of her own free will, the practically besieged town in order to share her destiny with me. 
At her own desire she goes as my wife with me into death. It will compensate us for what we both lost through my work in the service of my people.”

The Last Will of Adolf Hitler:

As I did not consider that I could take responsibility, during the years of struggle, of contracting a marriage, I have now decided, before the closing of my earthly career, to take as my wife that girl who, after many years of faithful friendship, entered, of her own free will, the practically besieged town in order to share her destiny with me. At her own desire she goes as my wife with me into death. It will compensate us for what we both lost through my work in the service of my people.

What I possess belongs – in so far as it has any value – to the Party. Should this no longer exist, to the State; should the State also be destroyed, no further decision of mine is necessary.

My pictures, in the collections which I have bought in the course of years, have never been collected for private purposes, but only for the extension of a gallery in my home town of Linz on Donau.

It is my most sincere wish that this bequest may be duly executed.

I nominate as my Executor my most faithful Party comrade, Martin Bormann. He is given full legal authority to make all decisions. He is permitted to take out everything that has a sentimental value or is necessary for the maintenance of a modest simple life, for my brothers and sisters, also above all for the mother of my wife and my faithful co-workers who are well known to him, principally my old Secretaries Frau Winter etc. who have for many years aided me by their work.

I myself and my wife – in order to escape the disgrace of deposition or capitulation – choose death. It is our wish to be burnt immediately on the spot where I have carried out the greatest part of my daily work in the course of a twelve years’ service to my people.

Given in Berlin, 29th April 1945, 4:00 a.m.
Signed:

A. Hitler

Signed as witnesses:
Dr. Joseph Goebbels
Martin Bormann
Colonel Nicholaus von Below



Lest we forget the enormity of what Adolf Hitler represented and did: 

do not forget that it was about 12 years before his death in 1945 that he founded The Third Reich and the entire sordid concept collapsed within a week of his cowardly suicide.

The truth of the photos of crimes and atrocities included in this Holocaust project needs to be shown. The photos may be of graphic nature and disturbing – before providing access to younger learners, parents and teachers should preview the sites and guide through what they may read and see.

#G352e* – KIPLING, Rudyard – The Reeds of Runnymede

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 30/09/2010

#G352e* – KIPLING, Rudyard – The Reeds of Runnymede

The Reeds of Runnymede

Magna Charta, June 15, 1215

    AT Runnymede, at Runnymede,
    What say the reeds at Runnymede?
    The lissom reeds that give and take,
    That bend so far, but never break. 
     
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
     
    They keep the sleepy Thames awake
    With tales of John at Runnymede.
    At Runnymede, at Runnymede,
    Oh, hear the reeds at Runnymede:– 
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    “You musn’t sell, delay, deny,
    A freeman’s right or liberty.
    It wakes the stubborn Englishry,
    We saw ’em roused at Runnymede! 
     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
     
    “When through our ranks the Barons came,
    With little thought of praise or blame,
    But resolute to play the game,
    They lumbered up to Runnymede; ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~And there they launched in solid line
    The first attack on Right Divine–
    The curt, uncompromising ‘Sign!’
    That settled John at Runnymede. 
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    “At Runnymede, at Runnymede,
    Your rights were won at Runnymede!
    No freeman shall be fined or bound,
    Or dispossessed of freehold ground,
     
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Except by lawful judgment found
    And passed upon him by his peers.
    Forget not, after all these years, 
    The Charter signed at Runnymede.”

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    And still when Mob or Monarch lays
    To rude a hand on English ways,
    The whisper wakes, the shudder plays,
    Across the reeds at Runnymede.

     
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    And Thames, that knows the moods of kings,
    And crowds and priests and suchlike things,
    Rolls deep and dreadful as he brings
    Their warning down from Runnymede!
     
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
