Countdown to conviction

If this Twitter thread recounting the man’s personal history is even remotely accurate, it appears to only be a matter of time before Stephen Fry, the BBC-appointed Smartest Man in Britain and ticket-taker extraordinaire, is conclusively demonstrated to be a bicycling enthusiast and fully-accredited member of Team Savile.

**STEPHEN FRY APPRECIATION THREAD**

Let’s hear it for one of Britain’s best-loved national treasures: Stephen Fry! Thanks to @gigameds for originally pointing out some of the reasons why we should celebrate the UK’s foremost intellectual.

Amongst his many talents, Fry is first and foremost an extraordinarily talented writer. His first play was written at the tender age of just 22 in 1979.

Of course, most of you will know him from his hilarious role as presenter of the BBC celebrity panel show QI where you can frequently hear him perform humourous songs about the affairs of the day.

There was a young chaplain from King’s

Who talked about God and such things

But his real desire

Was a boy in the choir

With a bottom like jelly on springs

Fry is even personally involved with charities that “help find missing children”. He carries a sufficiently heavy burden of guilt to have attempted suicide “on a number of occasions.” And, of course, he’s ELOW. With this much thick, black, oily smoke surrounding the fat, pompous narcissist, it would be more shocking to eventually learn that there wasn’t, in fact, any Hellfire.

Fry even looks enough like Cyril Smith to play the late paedophile Member of Parliament in a biopic.


No “prince” for you

 Harry and Meghan Markle are very, very upset to learn that their “son” will never be a prince:

Prince Charles is to ensure that his two-year-old grandson Archie will never be a Prince, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

The heir to the throne has made it clear that Harry and Meghan’s son will have no place among frontline Royals as he plans a slimmed-down Monarchy after he becomes King. 

The move has incensed the Sussexes and is thought to have prompted the series of bitter accusations the couple have levelled at Charles and the Royal Family from across the Atlantic.

A grandchild of the sovereign has long had the right to be a Prince, but Charles is determined to limit the number of key Royals, believing the public does not wish to pay for an ever-expanding Monarchy.

Charles has told the Sussexes that he will change key legal documents to ensure that Archie cannot get the title he would once have inherited by right, according to a source close to the couple.

The decision, which follows months of fraught discussion behind the scenes, has plunged relations between Harry and his relatives to a dangerous new low.

‘Harry and Meghan were told Archie would never be a Prince, even when Charles became King,’ confirmed the source.

In fairness, it could have been worse. Prince Charles could have revealed that Meghan Markle’s pregnancies were fake and Archie Markle is a rental. I’m not saying that’s the case, I’m just saying that I trust whatever comes out of the Sussex PR group even less than I trust Creepy Joe Biden’s PR team. At least when Creepy Joe is lying about Russia or China, we can be reasonably confident that those places actually exist.

I still cannot believe the British crown permitted one of their princes to marry a common sociopath from the Hellmouth. Although, one can’t help but notice that no one is talking about that awkward Maxwell-Epstein-Prince Andrew thing.


Christian persecution… in London

Christians have been expecting active persecution in the West for at least the last 40 years. It may be minor, to date, but it has officially arrived under the guise of “health care”:

A Good Friday service at a Polish church was shut down by police for breaching Covid rules as worshippers were threatened with £200 fines.

Officers shut down the religious ceremony in Balham High Street, south London, at around 5pm yesterday, with footage showing an officer tell worshippers that the gathering is ‘unlawful’ and that they have to go home.

Meanwhile, just under five miles away at a crowded Parliament Square, thousands of protestors gathered at a Kill the Bill rally chanting, banging drums and waving placards before scuffles broke out with police.

The parish Parafia Chrystusa Krola — Christ the Believer — has issued a statement saying it believes police ‘brutally exceeded their powers’.

It urged those present at the ceremony to file a formal complaint to the Metropolitan Police, adding: ‘We asked the police authorities to explain the incident and we are waiting for their response.’

Bishop of Buckingham Rt Rev Alan Wilson also questioned breaking up the service, telling Channel 4 News that the Government needs to clarify its coronavirus guidelines for churches.

And people on social media have slammed the police’s ‘disgraceful’ handling of the situation, with some describing it as ‘deeply offensive’.

Official coronavirus guidance states communal worship or prayer can be attended by as many people as a place of worship can accommodate, as long as they are socially distanced. Masks should be worn, according to the government rules. 

The Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark said the intervention had occurred during the solemn liturgy, which would have taken just 30 minutes to complete.

It is increasingly likely that your faith will be tested during your lifetime. Be ready for the test by deciding if you will follow Jesus Christ or if you will follow Caesar when you are presented with the choice. It will be interesting to see if the Queen, who is the titular head of the Church of England, is willing to accept this overt persecution of Christians  – even if Roman Catholic Christians – in her name.

UPDATE: Apparently the persecution is even worse in Ireland.

It’s now a crime to go to Mass in Ireland, and an Irish priest has recently been fined for celebrating Mass, even though such a law is not in our Constitution or on any legal books. As for the Irish Church: It’s been hijacked, and the fake senior clergy, most of them closet gays, are ‘in bed’ with the anti-Christian Woke State.


A Royal experiment ends

It wasn’t exactly a surprise that the British Royal Family’s much-ballyhooed experiment in multiracialism didn’t go very well. But did anyone expect a trainwreck of this magnitude?

It is a sad but inevitable consequence of Harry and Meghan’s decision to quit the royal family and live in America as private individuals that they are effectively now out in the cold.

They took a decision that they no longer wanted to commit full time to serve the Queen and monarchy, but felt they still had a role to play.

I am afraid after a year in which the Queen hoped the dust would settle, which left the door open should they change their minds, the Queen, on advice, has decided that the door has to be firmly shut.

Her Majesty’s decision gives clarity to a confusing situation and in my opinion the only course she could take. But there is a cool and hidden anger there too in her statement.

The fact that they releases this statement whilst Prince Philip was recovering in hospital is remarkable too and speaks volumes.

The Palace statement makes the distinction between Crown and Family. The Queen acknowledges that they are loved as members of her family. But that does not hide the fury over their decision give an interview to Oprah that will inevitably open up old wounds.

The interview is clearly the straw that broke the camel’s back. What astonishes me is Harry and Meghan’s frankly rude response.

They seem hell bent on undermining the Queen’s decades of duty and service, and that of the Duke of Edinburgh and Prince of Wales as well as other working royals, with their flippant and petulant remark.

The only real surprise at this point is that Meghan hasn’t been caught having an affair with a studio director or a professional athlete. Because you know it’s going to happen, sooner or later. As sure as Boomers are going to boom and grifters are going to grift, whores are going to whore. 


Britain reconsiders Biden

Our British Brethren already miss President Trump:

As one Conservative MP admitted last week, the trade deal that was being negotiated between the UK and the US while Trump was in office is now in trouble. ‘The steam has gone out of it,’ he said.

As I pointed out in these pages recently, the Biden team includes people who are deeply hostile to Great Britain and believe – incorrectly – that Brexit in some way abandons our commitment to the Good Friday Agreement.

It isn’t just the Democrat Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi who takes this ignorant, anti-British view. Senator Chuck Schumer will shortly be the majority leader in the new Democrat-run Senate.

Last year, Schumer gave a speech for Sinn Fein, alongside Gerry Adams and others, in which he declared that while ‘the road to Irish unity’ is ‘long and winding’ it is ‘now more within reach today than at any time’.

Sinn Fein was delighted to re-post that speech in the past few days, along with a message from Schumer to the Irish republicans: ‘I wish you the best in your critical efforts to build support for a truly united Ireland.’ The terrorists and former terrorists who run Sinn Fein are thrilled by such talk. After years of pro-terrorist sentiment being anathema in Washington, it appears that it is back at the heart of American politics.

This is bad for America – and bad for Britain, too.

With people such as Schumer at the top table, our nation is at a tricky juncture.

Remember, these people are dedicated to the break-up of our country – to the secession of Northern Ireland from the rest of the United Kingdom.

It’s also amazing to see that the Irish are more concerned about the British presence in Northern Ireland than the African presence in Ireland.


Congratulations, Britain

Britain is now free of the European Union:

The UK stopped following EU rules at 23:00 GMT, as replacement arrangements for travel, trade, immigration and security co-operation came into force. Boris Johnson said the UK had “freedom in our hands” and the ability to do things “differently and better” now the long Brexit process was over.

Although it may not have been as dramatic, this victory for Britain is actually more important than either WWI or WWII. Whether the British people use their freedom wisely or not is irrelevant, the point is that for the first time in decades, they are free to choose their own destiny.

Make no mistake, Brexit is a major blow for the globalists, as it punctured the illusion of inevitability behind which many of their advancements were made. And they know it, as Macron’s bitter speech today underlines:

Emmanuel Macron sparked fury today by claiming Brexit was the product of ‘lies and false promises’ in a bitter broadside at Britain’s departure from the EU. The French president lashed out at the UK’s decision to quit the block on the night it finally took place, more than four years after the Brexit referendum.

He used his New Year address to his nation to castigate the UK’s decision to go it alone after agreeing a trade deal which could damage the French fishing fleet – and his grip on power.

In the address delivered from the Elysee Palace, Paris, Mr Macron questioned the strength of Britain’s sovereignty following its departure from the European Union. ‘A few days ago, we reached an agreement to organise our future relations, defending our interests, our industries, our fishermen and our unity, he said in a video address,’ he said. ‘The United Kingdom remains our neighbour but also our friend and ally. This choice of leaving Europe, this Brexit, was the child of European malaise and lots of lies and false promises.’ 


There’s no crying in politics

I don’t think Princess Nut Nut’s new regime is long for this world, based on the inability of its new Press Secretary to stand up to what can’t even reasonably be described as criticism:

The woman appointed by Boris Johnson to lead his daily press operations was left in tears on Saturday after she claimed to have been the subject of negative briefings by a former No 10 official who resigned last week and made a dramatic exit from Downing Street.

In an extraordinary escalation of feuding involving new and departing aides to Johnson, friends of Allegra Stratton, the new press secretary to the prime minister, said she had been “in tears all morning” as a result of what she believed were critical briefings by Johnson’s former director of communications, Lee Cain.

Stratton, who will be the public face of the government, believes Cain told numerous journalists over the previous 24 hours that she was not the first choice for the job and had not been top of the list of a panel chosen to make the high-profile appointment.

Messrs. Putin and Xi must be laughing themselves sick over what presently passes for the once-powerful governments of the USA and the UK. And the EU is going to be licking its chops over “negotiating” the final Brexit deal with these sacrificial lambs. 


UPDATE: And now we know why they call her “Princess Nut Nut”. Kee-rikey!

Miss Symonds was said to be livid at a report in The Times which claimed that she no longer liked the animal. She went on Twitter to denounce it, saying: ‘Total load of c***. There has never been a happier, healthier and more loved dog than Dilyn.’

The dispute with Mr Cummings and Mr Cain flared when Miss Symonds apparently asked Mr Cain to make a formal complaint to The Times via the press watchdog, IPSO.

He refused to do so, pointing out that a Covid crisis meeting was about to take place in No 10 that day. Miss Symonds is understood to have contacted officials in Mr Johnson’s office and told them to scrap the coronavirus meeting because she wanted the Prime Minister to help her pursue her complaint with The Times. When Mr Cummings found out, sources said, he stormed in to Mr Johnson’s office and told him to go ahead with the meeting – which took place as planned.

An insider claimed: ‘We were dealing with the extraordinary chaos of Covid, and Carrie f***** the (PM’s Downing Street) private office up for a whole day. All over something trivial about her dog. She went bananas and spent the day on the phone to officials and the PM trying to force the Government machine to IPSO (send a formal complaint to the watchdog) The Times over it.’

So much for those Churchillian aspirations….


Watch the wives

First Salvini, now Johnson, have been betrayed by their female companions.

On Monday evening the Prime Minister offered Mr Cain the vacant job of Downing Street chief of staff.

Who else could follow Cummings out the door? 

Many of the most senior figures in Downing Street owe their loyalty to Dominic Cummings from Vote Leave days.

Lee Cain’s resignation on Wednesday night had already caused deep frustration. 

And there are fears that some could follow Mr Cummings out of the door now he has signalled his departure.

They include advisers Cleo Watson, Oliver Lewis – known as ‘Sonic’ – and data guru Ben Warner.

A source has said that while Brexit envoy Lord Frost was unhappy about Mr Cain’s departure, he has no intention of quitting as talks with Brussels enter their final stages. 

The move was backed by both Mr Cummings and the Cabinet Secretary, Simon Case, who argued that Mr Cain had been fulfilling part of the role for months.

However, news of the appointment was leaked to the Mail – prompting a furious backlash from senior Tories, who feared it would further embolden a Vote Leave faction contemptuous of the role of MPs.

Crucially, it also encountered the wrath of Ms Symonds, who dislikes Mr Cain’s abrasive style. She told her fiancé it would be a ‘mistake’ to give him a promotion.

As news of the row behind the scenes became public, Mr Cain decided his role was untenable.

He will stay in post until the end of the year, when he will be replaced as director of communications by former Mail journalist James Slack, currently Mr Johnson’s official spokesman. However, unlike Mr Cain, who was a political appointment, he will remain a civil servant. 

Tory MPs warned Mr Johnson that the chaos in No 10 was undermining public confidence in the Government.

Sir Roger Gale said it was ‘extraordinary and unacceptable that Downing Street should allow itself to be distracted by internal squabbles’ in the midst of a pandemic.

He added: ‘Frankly this is a distraction… the Prime Minister has got to get a grip on it.’

Other MPs urged Mr Johnson to ditch his special adviser.

One said: ‘If they have got rid of one of the Kray brothers they have got to get rid of Cummings as well. To use a well-known phrase, Boris should take back control and be the real Boris that so many of his genuine friends and supporters believe he can be.’

The Prime Minister also faced questions over Ms Symonds’ role in Downing Street. 

‘The question on everyone’s lips is ”who will she go after next”… it looks like senior appointments now have to be approved by Carrie,’ an insider said.

‘That is a dangerous path for the Government to go down.’

Another adviser said the episode reflected poorly on the Prime Minister. ‘It is disappointing that he has failed to return the loyalty of his most loyal lieutenant when the going got tough,’ they said.

‘It begs the question – who is making the decisions now?’

Looks like Britain has a new Lady Macbeth in the making. Boris Johnson actually looks afraid of her. Once again, the foolishness of placing any confidence in a “leader” who can’t stop chasing women is underlined.

UPDATE: And now Johnson’s best adviser has exited the sinking ship.

Boris Johnson’s chief adviser Dominic Cummings has left Number 10 with immediate effect, BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg says. Mr Cummings spoke to the PM earlier on Friday and it was decided it was best for him to go immediately after days of turmoil, our political editor said.


Pedos on the British throne

Literally sitting on the royal throne, although it isn’t quite what you might not unreasonably assume it to be:

A bombshell photo has emerged that shows child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged “pimp” Ghislaine Maxwell sitting in the British Queen’s throne inside Buckingham Palace, according to reports. Maxwell was arrested by U.S. authorities this week over her alleged role in Epstein’s child sex slavery operation.The newly emerged image shows Maxwell sitting in the throne alongside disgraced actor Kevin Spacey during a private tour of the palace organized by Britain’s Prince Andrew, it has been reported.The photo was obtained by British newspaper The Telegraph and was reportedly taken in 2002.

That’s really not a good look at all, although I suppose it would explain an awful lot about the Jimmy Saville catastrophe. At this point, I’m astonished that Prince Andrew hasn’t been locked up in the Tower of London for the good of the monarchy.

Meanwhile, the British media is attempting to play this off as just “a Palace prank”. It’s just a prank, you see. Not a big deal at all. Don’t even give the matter another thought. It’s just a prank, just a juvenile prank, by a pair of naughty knuckleheads. Let’s just move on…..


Boris to ICU

The British Prime Minister has been moved into the ICU:

Boris Johnson has been moved to intensive care after his coronavirus condition worsened, Downing Street announced tonight. He is conscious and has asked Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab to deputise for him. Mr Johnson, 55, has been transferred to intensive care as a precaution should he require a ventilator.

Not to be pessimistic here, but it is generally not a good sign when one’s consciousness is deemed newsworthy. The more conspiratorial-minded will, I imagine, be tempted to view this as some sort of revenge for Brexit.

UPDATE: Can’t say I’m liking Boris’s odds particularly well based on recent developments concerning his possible successors. Although I can’t imagine the British electorate is particularly impressed by the new Labour Party leader’s top priority in light of the current crisis.

  1. Dominic Raab is now the UK’s de facto prime minister after Boris Johnson was hospitalised, with the running of the country placed in the hands of a man who has just one year of Cabinet experience…. Mr Raab said karate helped him cope with the premature death of his father, Peter, who had fled to the UK from Czechoslovakia at the age of six in 1938 to escape the Nazis. The Foreign Secretary released pictures during his Tory leadership campaign of his Jewish relatives who were murdered in the Holocaust.
  2. New Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has apologised to the Jewish community for anti-Semitism in the party and promised to “tear out this poison by its roots”…. Sir Keir, a QC and former Director of Public Prosecutions, had a surprise for the 750-strong audience. Quizzed on whether he considered himself to be a Zionist — a supporter of the existence of the state of Israel — he answered: “I don’t know how many people know this (but) my wife’s family are Jewish and we have got extended family in Israel.”
