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!

Rain, Rain, Rain NOT Unusual but Infrequent!

Rain, Rain, Rain NOT Unusual but Infrequent!

Severe flood warning in South West as heavy rain falls

The BBC’s Andrew Plant reports from deluged Devon

A severe flood warning has been issued for part of south-west England, as river levels rise after heavy rain.
The Environment Agency said lives were in danger in areas near the River Axe, in Devon.
In Northumberland, a man in his 20s died when his car came off a road during torrential rain.
Some 48 flood warnings and 133 flood alerts remain in England and Wales, while nine flood warnings and seven flood alerts are in force in Scotland.
The Environment Agency’s severe flood warning means there is a danger to life, while a flood warning means immediate action is required. A flood alert means people should be prepared for possible flooding.
People in low lying properties and roads around Stoney Bridge and Castle Hill in Axminster have been urged to stay in a safe place, listen to the emergency services ………

However let us not get excited nor duped by rascals trying to con us into paying additional taxes or subsidising their business scams with the dishonest idiocy related to ‘Warmist Theories’ – that climate changes both cyclically and randomly (it seems to us) on this planet is an irrefutable fact.

There is nothing new about torential rain during some summers which would seem to be a result of a shift in the jet stream which may well be due to buffetting of the planet due to solar winds brought about by solar activity in the form of the cyclical solar spots and the less predictable cycle of sun flares and emissions.

Just look what happened in June 1955:

Mirror 892-rula.jpg

As the Daily Mirror clearly displayed on its front page for a mere 2.1/2d. or the equivalent of a tiny fraction over 1p.

On a more localised basis consider the Boscastle floods of 16-Aug-2004 as an example of summer flooding.

The Met. Office provides extensive detail of flooding on the East Coast of England as in Further severe floods struck the region in 1570, 1825, 1894, 1916 and 1953.

It is also worth remembering in this Jubilee Year the prolonged periods of rain in the summer of 1953.

There is no doubt that climate changes – always has and always will!

To try to pin a guilt trip on mankind for these changes would seem to be to be dishonest in the extreme and the likes of Al Gore and Paschauri with what can only be seen as a money making scam and the apparent nonsense from those exployting the ‘Green Issues’ of climate as with Porrit and Monbiot and their ilk can only be treated with the contempt they deserve – particularly when one consideres their income from selling the ‘theories and scams’.

What is of particular note is the faux wealth of our society that we are able to deploy huge resources to deal with the floods that are a matter of norm – if thankfully infrequent. Yet as The Daily Mirror shows we were woefully unprepared for such events in 1955 with its picture of a Policeman in his normal uniform seeking to deal with the problem at street level – nowadays a policeman can barely stand up for all the kit he carries as he waddles down the road deep in conversation with his partner of the day and for such as the flooding shown today we have not just the kit needed but armies of parasites offering councilling and half the police force off work claiming stress – well 1/3rd of the police budget is squandered on Police pensions for starters – due to their secure employ and early retirement!

Is the problem actually the flooding, which is a norm or the need to fund the executive salaries of some 50 TV channels endlessly discussing the mundane and repetitive flooding we from time to time experience in Britain?

Those peddling the Man Made Global Warming Myths clearly and deliberately overlook the 29 identifiable Ice Ages we have established in our planet’s history all followed by periods of ‘Global Warming’ and all pre-dating man, industrialised or otherwise!

#G0652* – Thank You to Mr. Obama & America

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

#G0652* – Thank You to Mr. Obama & America
.
Hi,

what an excellent celebration laid on for the weekend – such a shame that The BBC were so incredibly incompetent, amateur and crass with not a single commentator of repute or visibility throughout their disgracefull coverage of the flotilla & River Pageant on The Thames – The BBC were a total embarrassment as they tried to do it on the cheap so their over paid executives could have the day off!

For me one of the WOW moments of the weekend was the generouys messge from the American peoples delivered by their elected President:


To which I felt compelled to comment on YouTube:

  • Thank you sir and thank you to our enduring allies The USA.
  • One of, if not the, most valuable wow moment of the weekend – Thank you America. Similar comments from our contrinental neighbours were conspicuous by their absence. The EU can NOT be classified as allies rather as leaches sucking out our life blood & self respect at £50 Million a day whilst destroying our global stature & competitiveness with their footling regulations and self serving, self enriching unelected bureaucrats and parasitic faux parliament of greed filled fools – The rape of EUrope

I am seeking a text of this message and will post it when I have located it.

In the meantime:

President Obama today honored Queen Elizabeth’s 60 years on the throne, sending her the “heartfelt congratulations of the American people” on the historic occasion of her Diamond Jubilee.
Addressing “Your Majesty” in a video message, Obama describes the queen as “both a living witness to the power of our alliance and a chief source of its resilience.”
“In war and in peace, in times of plenty and in times of hardship, the United States and the United Kingdom have shared a special relationship. We’ve stood tall and strong and together we’ve faced some of the greatest challenges this world has known,” he says.
While many U.S. presidents and British prime ministers have come and gone, Obama notes “your majesty’s reign has endured.”
“As a steadfast ally, loyal friend and tireless leader, your majesty has set an example of resolve that will be long celebrated,” he says.
Looking to the future, Obama says it is “gratifying to know that the bonds between our nations remain indispensable.”
“May the light of your majesty’s crown continue to reign supreme for many years to come,” Obama concludes.

#G0454* – Michael Buerk attacks ‘politically correct’ BBC

Posted by Greg Lance - Watkins (Greg_L-W) on 02/04/2011

#G0454* – Michael Buerk attacks ‘politically correct’ BBC

Hi,

it was good to see yet another rather trite reporter from the BBC ‘come out’ at the end of his career as with Peter Sissons in his biography which was littered with comment legally defensible as ‘Veritas’.

Michael Buerk attacks ‘politically correct’ BBC
BBC presenter Michael Buerk has criticised the corporation for being “out of touch” with public opinion.
Michael Buerk Photo: BBC
9:39AM BST 02 Apr 2011
The veteran journalist accused BBC staff of making the left-wing Guardian newspaper their “bible” and political correctness “their creed”.
Mr Buerk, who presents Radio 4’s Moral Maze, was reviewing the memoir of his former colleague, Peter Sissons, who also attacks the BBC for having “institutional bias”.
Writing in political magazine Standpoint, Mr Buerk said: “What the BBC regards as normal and abnormal, what is moderate or extreme, where the centre of gravity of an issue lies, are conditioned by the common set of assumptions held by the people who work for it.”
He added: “It’s all very well-meaning, and painstakingly even-handed, but often notably adrift of the overriding national sentiment.”
Although he praised some BBC managers, including Mark Thompson, the director general, Mr Buerk said some of his bosses were “totally transparent t******.”
Related Articles
He concluded: “For those of us who love the place, and what it should stand for, these are worrying times.”
Mr Buerk, 65, has previously criticised BBC newsreaders, saying their role was “the only job that actually requires no talent at all”.
He also caused controversy in 2005 when he claimed life was now lived “according to women’s rules” and men were reduced to little more than “sperm donors”.

Buerke & Sissons have all the conviction of General Sir Michael Jackson or General Dunnatt – heaven forefend that we might find some men of honour who speak out BEFORE they have become eligible for their pensions!

It would be almost as astonishing as hearing the likes of Neil Kinnock, Peter Mandelson, Nick Clegg, David Hoohn, Patten, Presscott and the other parasites in Government who are actually PAID to lie as they are at risk of loosing their obscenely generous EU pensions if they ever speak out against The EU and tell the truth!

Just as The EU will on Monday in its pretend parliament be letting MEPs make sound bites on the subject of the fact that the unelected Snivil Cervants who rule the Dictator Committee of The Commissioner have decided to fund Political Parties.

Well sort of!

The EU will fund Political Parties that firstly help The EU to create Pan EU Political Parties – hence for instance UKIP will be siding with the extremist equivalents of The BNP, the racists, xenophobes, anti Jewish and violent anti homosexual gutter sweepings to help The EU create The Pan EU Political EFD Group.

Those that qualify will then be funded IF and only IF they promote increased integration but that will be easy for UKIP as their partners are ALL pro EU aas are most of their rump of MEPs several of whom openly support The EU and merely wish to pretend they can change it from within!

They do rather come across with all the integrity of General Sir Michael Jackson, General Dunnutt, Michael Sissons and Peter Beurk – all cloned and interchangeable – all too willing to go along with corruption in return for money and until their knuckles get rapped for jeopardising their pensions!

You will of course recal that as with the massive funding of The BBC by The EU, for as long as it promotes EU Corruption – The Military on retirement tend to gain many consultancies and lobby positions and as The British Military is thinned out and sold out to the obscenity of A EUroForce and currently our troops face leadership by a Frenchman (something of an oxymoron on at least 2 counts!).

– we note neither Jackson or the Donnutt nor Kinnock, Patten, Buerk, Sissons have yet been adequately ethical or insufficiently gonnadically challenged to renounce centralised dictatorship where we have an 8% say over our own destiny when will THE PEOPLE get their referendum on IN/OUT – not some top down scam run by Rabid Milliband, Dan Hannan, Bob Crow, Mark Seddon, Marc Glendenning, Bryan Denny and their crazed and EU funded chums.

It is almost impossible to unknit the tangle deliberately designed by the likes of Julia Middleton and her malign claque of Common Purpose.
