Tranny Who?

The LGBT pressure groups must be laughing their heads off, after the BBC announced the latest Dr Who was to be a woman.

Wonder Woman Was Never The Same .... Somehow.

All done in the name of 'equality' of course

Beeping Madness

The soundtrack of the NHS is beeps. Every machine has its own little bleep, plop, or alarm to indicate that a drug is not being pumped in, or that something is not being sucked out of a hole or orifice.

Bleeping Machines ..... A Modern Curse

Unfortunately it appears that most of the ward helper staff are not authorised to stop these noises when (and this is often the case), there is no one able to immediately sort out the primary issue.

Lurking Under Societies Surface

The NHS is Britain's great social melting pot. Certainly from my observations, about 40% of the staff are born overseas, and about a quarter of its recipients are seemingly also born abroad.

Five Hundred Thousand Dysfunctional Families In UK .....

But it's also the only place outside of the more fleeting brushes on public mass transport, where the social classes meet for any length of time. So for instance the UK's substantial underclass, a group who rarely get a public face, partly because of Britain's shame that 70 years of social policies to eradicate such backwardness, have palpably failed, get their voice in public medicine.

The Great Escape

Well, it was a narrow run thing, and only achieved after playing our get out of jail card judiciously (or desperately), but we are now back in the fortress of solitude, literally licking our wounds.

I'm Still Here ..... Just.

So this blogger lives to fight another day, but as the Duke of Wellington famously said after the battle of Waterloo "It has been a damned nice (close run) thing — the nearest run thing you ever saw in your life".

Profound Thoughts From The Past

I'll leave you this week with the thoughts on the importance of education, by Sergeant Major J Parkinson.

A Thin Red Line Attacks The Russians ...
He was a participant of the Battle of Alma during the Crimea War, when he served her Britannic Majesty Queen Victoria, as a soldier in the 11th Hussars cavalry unit. Part of the Light Brigade of Charge of the Light Brigade fame ... but that was later in the campaign.

No Nearer To God Is He

Nearer to god am I …. Well not quite it seems, even if you are the King of Saudi Arabia. a man who usually likes to have flunkies and flatterers around him at all times.

Saudi King Used To Flunkies

Apparently however there are limits to the flattery …. it appears that one flunky, Ramadan al-Anzi, overstepped the thin divide between Allah, and the King of Saudi Arabia, when he used the terms "Haleem" (forbearing), and "Shadeed al-Eqab", in a piece of prose in his column in the al-Jazirah newspaper

Skewed Social Values

I have fairly often commented on the skewed social values of one group in the Indian Subcontinent (and abroad), but have often ignored another, the Hindu's. However they are not immune to the social backwardness inherent in those societies .e.g human sacrifices to the gods.

Sorcerers Practise Black and White Magic In India .... Some Of It Very Black Indeed.

But in March this year there were some shocking stories. The first was when police in the south Indian state of Karnataka, arrested three people in connection with the "human sacrifice" of a 10-year-old girl. The brother and sister of a paralysed man, with the help of a 17 year accomplice, abducted and murdered the little girl. They did so on the instructions of a "sorcerer" in order to "cure" the paralysed brother. Local residents found the body of the girl inside a bag along with the materials which police believe were used to conduct "black magic" rituals.

The Undiscovered Country

This blog may be cut short from next week.Mainly as I will have to leave the tower of solitude for a very heavy duty life or death hospital operation.

The Tower Of Solitude ... No PC Views Home For Aeons.

Unfortunately this visit not only carries a not inconsiderable risk of at least one blogger visiting that undiscovered country, from whose bourn. No traveller returns, but also the more likely possibility of my not being well enough to post anything next week (Although I may advance post a few standbys just in case).

It Could Have Been Worse and Other Shorts

Trust the perfidious French to take advantage of any situation. Iran has just given out its first oil exploration contracts since sanctions were lifted under the Obama nuclear deal.

China And France Share The Spoils Of Obama's Diplomacy ....

So of course, the French, who have once again kept a low profile whenever we clash with the nuclear ambitions of rogue states, gets awarded the £3.9bn deal (alongside a Chinese company). What strange bedfellows these arrangements throw up. France, China and Iran marching boldly, arm in arm towards the future.

Dirty Arab War Hots Up

The fierce social media war between Qatar and Saudi Arabia has intensified, with residents of each state attacking each other over the internet... and competing for ways to show loyalty to their own state. Baby naming is one such way e.g. a Saudi national has named his new baby girl 'Al-Saudia' in response to a Kuwaiti father who last week announced that his daughter would be known as 'Qatar.' (noticeably its only girls who can be given stupid names, whereas boys remain as Mohammed's).

But it seems to have gone extra dirty, when this picture started trending around the Arab world ....

Plane At Ben Gurion Airport ....
..... What? You cant see what's so offensive or dirty about this picture?

Days Of The Jackals

In a strange twist on the famous thriller book (and subsequent movie) Day Of The Jackal, a suspected far-right extremist has been charged with plotting to kill French President Emmanuel Macron at the Bastille Day parade later this month.

Day Of The Jackal .... Not Impossible Scenario.

In fact it turns out that this date - which is of course Bastille Day parade and commemorates the start of the French Revolution, and takes place on the Champs-Elysées avenue in Paris on the 14th of each July - is popular for assassination attacks.

Our Friends In The Middle East

The news that Saudi Arabia is alleged to be the biggest exporter of illiberal and bigoted ideologies in to Britain is hardly news at all. In fact it's better described as "olds".

Saudi Influence Is Via Money And Hard-line Ideology.

This is because it's been known for at least a decade (and in all likelihood several decades), that they have been exporting Wahhabi ideology to the rest of the world.
