Acolyte = a person assisting a priest in a religious service or procession

What a misguided soul you are Shaw. Guido Fawkes may be many things but I am afraid you are the only one foolish enough to think he is a religion.

Boris the bountiful's speech From your very own guido, the nemesis of the loony left.

https://order-order.com/2018/10/02/read-full-boris-speech-text/#more-302745

AN except:
It would mean that UK business and industry – the entire UK economy – would be exposed perpetually to regulations that might have been expressly designed, at the behest of foreign competitors, to do them down.
It would mean that whatever the EU came up with, banning the sale of eggs by the dozen, banning diabetics from driving, banning vaping, whatever – and all of those have been at least considered by Brussels in the last few years – all of this nonsense we would have to implement with no ability to change or resist.
This is not pragmatic, it is not a compromise. It is dangerous and unstable – politically and economically.
My fellow Conservatives, this is not democracy. This is not what we voted for. This is an outrage.
This is not taking back control: this is forfeiting control.

WHO IS PAUL STAINES (AKA) GUIDO FAWKES?
Who is Paul Staines and why are articles calling him Guido Fawkes showing up in my email inbox? >prisonlawinsideout: Paul Staines (aka) Guido Fawkes sue me and see if I care...: The Guardian 31 May 1986: Tory student leader in ‘ racist ‘ party link / Paul Delarie-Staines of FCS attempts to form pact with British National Party in Hull >By David Rose >A leader of the Federation of Conservative Students wrote to an organiser of the British National Party proposing joint ‘direct action’ to disrupt the meetings of leftwing students. Secrecy, he emphasised, was essential: ‘The Reds would simply go wild if they got to hear of a BNP-FCS link. I would personally be in danger of being expelled from the Conservative Party.’ >The author of the letter is Mr Paul Delarie-Staines, the chairman of the federation’s 50-strong branch at the Humberside college of Higher Education. Mr Delarie-Staines, who is in his first year of a degree course in business information studies, wrote on May 22 to Mr Ian Walker, a BNP organiser in Hull. >He was, he said, against several of the aims of the BNP, which campaigns for the repatriation of black citizens. Several of its members have been convicted of offences under the Race Relations Act, and others for crimes of violence against ethnic minorities. Its leader, Mr John Tyndall, is a former chairman of the National Front. >Mr Delarie-Staines said he did not share the BNP view on immigration: as a member of the ‘libertarian’ faction of the FCS he advocated the free movement of labour, albeit with the caveat that ‘you come here to work - or starve. ‘He went on: ‘I share a lot of your objectives.‘ These included a return to leadership and statesmanship, the abolition of the welfare state, and ‘the elimination of Communism in Britain - the mass media, the trade unions, and the schoolroom. ‘Mr Delaire-Staines continued: ‘Nevertheless, even though we have our differences, I know a lot of BNP people at college do support the FCS (some are members of the FCS). I can certainly envisage some degree of cooperation. >‘For instance, we are moving away from just the normal political debate and towards more direct action - anti-Communist slogans on bridges, disrupting the leftist meetings by posing as leftists and then causing trouble, and also convincing individual leftists of the error of their ways. >‘Perhaps members of the BNP would care to join us in our anti-leftist activities. We can arrange a meeting to discuss possible joint future activities. ‘Other examples of Mr Delaire-Staines work reached the Guardian, including a number of songs. One, entitled FCS Bootboys, reads: ‘Gas them all, gas them all, the Tribune group trendies and all. Crush Wedgwood Benn and make glue from his bones, Burn the broad left in their middle class homes. >‘Yes we’re saying goodbye to the Left, as safe in their graveyards they rest. >‘Cos they’ll get no further, we’ll stop with murder, the bootboys of FCS. >‘In a letter to a friend, Mr Delaire-Staines said that he had been on a ‘community arts course - well. not exactly community arts, more spraypainting a bridge at 3am. Quite good fun really, ducking out of sight of passing police cars’ >Mr Delaire-Staines told the Guardian that he had not meant violence by direct action at leftist meetings, only ‘causing as much noise as possible’. He said that he had tried to forge links with the BNP because ‘we share their anti-Communist view’. >He added: ‘They’re not far-right. They’re just racists, they believe in one colour. ‘Mr John Barrow, the national chairman of FCS and a Lambeth councillor, said that Mr Delaire-Staines was ‘a bit silly. I wouldn’t hold it against him. I’m sure he’ll grow out of it.’ After hearing extracts from the letter to the BNP he added. ‘He’s absolutely right that he’s in danger of being thrown out of the Conservative Party.’Mr James Goodsman, the Conservative Central Office official responsible for the FCS, said: ‘If the evidence comes my way I will certainly look into it.'

Excellent piece there, John. Watch the Tories in the next election campaign. Just more bankrupt "policies," appeals to right-wing groups and little-England sentiment, and, most of all, and most useful to Labour, more Corbyn-bashing. They haven't learned, as revealed by the Tories and their fellow-travellers on Mudcat getting more and more hysterical in their searches for any Jezza-dirt they can dig up. The electorate saw through it last time and it's even more transparent this time. Oddly, one thing the Tories HAVE been fairly quiet about is "Labour's antisemitism problem." No need to wonder why!

Philip Hammond still trying to blame the last Labour government for the Tories' dismal performance on the economic front. Boasted that they've reduced the Deficit from 10% of GDP in 2010 to just over 2%. Completely forgot to mention that, in eight years, theyve borrowed more than the total of all borrowing by all Labour governments ever. Did manage to say, several times though, that the Tories are the party of 'economic competence'.

Jim's assertion that Jewish agents within the Labour Party have been lying on behalf of Israel to discredit Labour in and out of conference would make the issue relevant.
It must be said that such an assertion directly contravenes the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism.

Excellent letter in today's Guardian. I think I that the accusation of "systematic reporting failures" fully applies also to Corbyn's enemies on this forum. I don't suppose for one minute that the list of signatories will impress them. Or that they'll even bother to read the letter at all when they see the list. That's what blind prejudice is all about.

We have long had serious concerns about the lack of due impartiality and accuracy in the reporting of allegations of antisemitism against Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party. The recent report by the Media Reform Coalition examining coverage of Labour’s revised code of conduct on antisemitism shows that we are right to be concerned.

The research examined over 250 articles and broadcast news segments and found over 90 examples of misleading or inaccurate reporting. In relation to the IHRA definition of antisemitism that was at the heart of the dispute, the research found evidence of “overwhelming source imbalance” in which critics of Labour’s code of conduct dominated coverage, with nearly 50% of Guardian reports, for example, failing to include any quotes from those defending the code or critiquing the IHRA definition. Moreover, key contextual facts about the IHRA definition – for example that it has only been formally adopted by eight countries (and only six of the IHRA member states) – were consistently excluded.

The researchers conclude these were not occasional lapses in judgment but “systematic reporting failures” that served to weaken the Labour leadership and to bolster its opponents within and outside of the party.

It is of course entirely appropriate and necessary for our major news outlets to report on the horrors of antisemitism, but wrong to present it as an issue specific to the Labour party.

In covering the allegations that Labour is now “institutionally antisemitic”, there have been inaccuracies, clear distortions and revealing omissions across our most popular media platforms. We believe that significant parts of the UK media have failed their audiences by producing flawed reports that have contributed to an undeserved witch-hunt against the Labour leader and misdirected public attention away from antisemitism elsewhere, including on the far right, which is ascendant in much of Europe.

"Thatcher was the one who turned homes into commodities rather than places to live"


Was it not labour first proposed selling off local authority housing stock?
Was it not labour that built an average of 562 council houses per year. And Mrs Thatcher's Conservatives? 41,343.?

Facts dear boy, FACTS! not flights of fancy or extremely dodgy rhetoric


"The Labour Party initially proposed the idea of the right of tenants to own the house they live in, in their manifesto for the 1959 general election which they subsequently lost"


So the reality is Labour first moneterized housing stock under public ownership, and further drove up its value by a creating a paucity of further newbuilds!

Not exactly a shining testament to times of socialist misrule, is it?

I mean Steve's hit on the crux of the matter. Both the Israelis and the Palestinians have laid claims to a chunk of land. Ownership is an odd sort of abstract spiritual thing.

Political parties are gross materialistic devices. They're about as clever a way for divining such matters as gelignite on an ATM machine.

The party conferences have always represented worst aspects of English prejudices, as demagogues compete to think up the daftest truisms for party faithful.

The international community considers the establishment of Israeli settlements in the Israeli-occupied territories illegal under international law, because the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949 prohibits countries from moving population into territories occupied in a war.

The Geneva Conventions DO NOT apply here.
1) Palestine is not a High Contracting Party. Part 1 Article 1 4th Geneva Convention.
2) Jordan's occupation of parts of the former British Mandate (and appropriation into the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (1948-1967) WAS illegal and anyway Jordan has since relinquished all claims.
3) The clause you refer to was a response to Nazi atrocities during World War II, specifically mass transfers and deportations to concentration and death camps. This is clear by the documents surrounding the convention and statements by the drafters.
It does not apply here and has never been applied in clear cases where one state transfers civilians to live in occupied territory including China transferring Han Chinese into Tibet and the former Soviet Union transferring ethnic Russians into Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.
4) Israel has transferred no one. Any Israelis living in the area that was formerly Jordan (48-67) came willingly and of their own free volition

I think you should own the land that your house stands on. As for your garden and your farm, or whatever, you have the right to occupy that land (as long as you didn't forcibly drive someone else off it first) because you have tended it, drained it, cultivated it and generally improved it. I don't advocate anarchy. Somebody made your guitar, you maybe, or you paid money to the person who made it (ultimately). But land is different, because you can't make it, and John Seymour's principle is that you can earn the right to occupy land to make your living from it, or get pleasure from it, as long as you don't occupy more than your fair share (he made suggestions as to what that should be, according to the quality of the land) and as long as you are a good steward. That sounds like a good start.

The Praying Mantis was a disaster on Marr this morning - she looked like a rabbit caught in the headlights, and she kept pulling that strange face she pulls when she's bricking-it and in panic-mode.

Hilarious!

Great starter for ten for Tory Party Conference
The Foriehn Secretary declared the Prime Minister's Brexit plan "deranged" and she is to announce plans for a "Festival of Britain"
That should iron out some of their problems !!

An interesting philosophical point. I tend to think, I own the freehold of my house. But in the long run ,none of us own anything. In fact it pisses me off a bit to think my guitars - that I worked and sacrificed for will be being plunked by some other bugger before too long.
