Toxic, Macho, Out of Touch? - But it's " Saviour of 'is Country " When the Guns Begin to Shoot


Channel 4 can, quite rightly,  hire and fire who they like.

They and others are free to despise him, and people like him, for representing everything that they claim to hate.

However, be under no illusions, they will be the first to beg for help from him and his comrades if, god forbid, we are ever in need of his services!

I WENT into a public 'ouse to get a pint o' beer,
The publican 'e up an' sez, " We serve no red-coats here."
The girls be'ind the bar they laughed an' giggled fit to die,
I outs into the street again an' to myself sez I:
O it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' " Tommy, go away " ;
But it's " Thank you, Mister Atkins," when the band begins to play
The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
O it's " Thank you, Mister Atkins," when the band begins to play.

I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
They gave a drunk civilian room, but 'adn't none for me;
They sent me to the gallery or round the music-'alls,
But when it comes to fightin', Lord! they'll shove me in the stalls!
For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' " Tommy, wait outside ";
But it's " Special train for Atkins " when the trooper's on the tide
The troopship's on the tide, my boys, the troopship's on the tide,
O it's " Special train for Atkins " when the trooper's on the tide.

Yes, makin' mock o' uniforms that guard you while you sleep
Is cheaper than them uniforms, an' they're starvation cheap.
An' hustlin' drunken soldiers when they're goin' large a bit
Is five times better business than paradin' in full kit.
Then it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an` Tommy, 'ow's yer soul? "
But it's " Thin red line of 'eroes " when the drums begin to roll
The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
O it's " Thin red line of 'eroes, " when the drums begin to roll.

We aren't no thin red 'eroes, nor we aren't no blackguards too,
But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
An' if sometimes our conduck isn't all your fancy paints,
Why, single men in barricks don't grow into plaster saints;
While it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an` Tommy, fall be'ind,"
But it's " Please to walk in front, sir," when there's trouble in the wind
There's trouble in the wind, my boys, there's trouble in the wind,
O it's " Please to walk in front, sir," when there's trouble in the wind.

You talk o' better food for us, an' schools, an' fires, an' all:
We'll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
Don't mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
The Widow's Uniform is not the soldier-man's disgrace.
For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an` Chuck him out, the brute! "
But it's " Saviour of 'is country " when the guns begin to shoot;
An' it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' anything you please;
An 'Tommy ain't a bloomin' fool - you bet that Tommy sees!

Commander Data's Censorious Attitude II - The Revenge of The Faecesbots


 

Back in January I wrote about Commander Data's censorious attitude, and his banning of one of my posts:

"Commander Data has gotten rather a bee in his bonnet over what people post on Faecesbook (his personal social media network) and duly banned Trump the other day for life.

Not content with banning those in the public eye, Data has set his android eyes on ordinary people. Imagine my surprise to be confronted with a threat of having my Faecesbook account restricted on Saturday."

Here we are in March, and one of Commander Data's Faecesbots has yet again taken exception to something I posted, and gave me a 30 day ban from posting and commenting.

 

May be an image of text that says "19:56 X 31% You can't post or comment for 30 days This is because your previous posts didn't follow our Community Standards. No one else can see these posts. 2 Mar Your post goes against our SSORS BEALP Community Standards on dangerous individuals and organisations 2 Mar Your post goes against our SSORS BEALPA Community Standards on dangerous individuals and organisations"

I duly complained, and blinkey, blonky, blimey the bot apologised an reinstated me.

All very well and tedious, but the post that the Faecesbot was complaining about was posted in May 2020!

Is Commander Data having some sort of mental breakdown?

Schools Can't Force Children To Wear Masks

As per the Telegraph:

"Children are not under any obligation to wear face masks, the Government said on Wednesday night, telling schools not to send pupils home if they refuse to wear one. "

Nanny Bans Raleigh, Nelson and Drake

 


Howden Junior School, in East Yorkshire, has ditched the house names of Sir Walter Raleigh, Admiral Nelson and Francis Drake and the school's student council has voted on the following replacements:

-Greta Thunberg 

-Marcus Rashford

-Amanda Gorman

-Malala Yousafzai.

The school can call its houses what it likes. However, what is rather telling is the headmaster's comment about the pupils' knowledge of the banned historical figures.

As per The Mail:

"The headteacher goes on to explain that the school had no 'tangible reason' to keep the historical names and that none of the pupils knew who they were as they were not part of the curriculum."

Maybe this shouldn't come as too much of a surprise given that in the last Ofsted inspection, the school was given a "requires improvement" rating:

“Provision for history (...) especially requires improvement”

Facebook Forbids Faggots


 

As loyal readers know, I have had run ins with the censorious attitude of Facebook and its boss Commander Data in the past; eg in January when it banned one of my posts.

Therefore my sympathies to the humble faggot lovers, who simply wanted to have a chat about their favourite dish.

Sadly, Facebook has chosen to forbid them to discuss it.

Nanny's 50 Page Roadmap - Drawn Up by 100 Bureaucrats

 


Whilst things appear to be looking up (if we ignore the rumour mongering in the media about when lockdown will really end), I nevertheless have some feelings of unease.

Apparently the draft version of Boris Johnson’s roadmap out of lockdown is more than 50 pages long and has been drawn up by 100 bureaucrats.

I would have more confidence in this if I could be assured that the bureaucrats had some "real world" experience, outside of the civil service/Westminster bubble.

To compound my feelings of unease, Peston and his ilk are pushing hard for domestic vaccine passports.

Beware the dead hand of bureaucracy and journalists pushing their own agenda!

Nanny's Three Shell Game


 

Depending on which media organisation you follow, Nanny will reopen the pubs and restaurants in:

- April, outside dining/drinking only

- April, fully open

- June or August

- At some undisclosed date but only for those with a vaccine passport

Does this seem a bit confusing?

Well, yes it is!

Is the confusion deliberate, or just an example of incompetence?

Both, but leaning towards deliberate.

For you see children, Nanny is testing the water to gauge our reactions and also softening us up to ensure that whatever roadmap she announces on the 22nd will seem reasonable.

This means that for the next seven days, the media will bombard us with "leaks" and "speculation" which will help no one and increase many people's stress levels. As such, it is advisable to ignore the noise and wait for the 22nd.

Stay Apart Forever!


 

Come the onset of winter we will then be told that restrictions will be in place until Spring 2022!

When the public inquiry into this starts, aside from politicians, SAGE and the NHS being put in the dock, the media need to be hauled up before it to account for the damage they have done by spreading stories based on unattributed leaks and the opinions of rogue "experts "!

Nanny's Self Inflicted #HolidayGate


 

Nanny has got herself into a right old tangle over the media's insistence that we should be told now if we can go on holiday in the summer.

The answer to the media's obsessive questioning about holidays is really rather simple, all Nanny has to say is the following:

1 We don't know yet.

2 If you book, then make sure you book a venue/means of getting there that has a full cancellation and refund policy.

3 Take personal responsibility for any holiday decisions you make.

Simples!

Seaford School Bans Churchill


 

Seaford Head School in Seaford has removed Churchill and JK Rowling from the names of school houses after students questioned whether these figures "represent the school's core values".

A letter to parents, students and guardians said that war-time Prime Minister Winston Churchill was "a figure who promoted racism and inequality, unfairly imprisoning and torturing many".

It added that students did not feel Harry Potter author JK Rowling was a a suitable representative, because of her recent words about the trans community.

The letter, addressed from the school's students, is quoted by the Argus

"Churchill could be considered an important historical figure. However, we are now more aware that Churchill was a figure who promoted racism and inequality, unfairly imprisoning and torturing many."

"Could be considered.."!

The article doesn't mention who was eligible to vote, the turnout and whether a balanced discussion was held before the vote.

Sanitising history and saving modern day sensitive feelings, to avoid the unpleasant reality that human beings have both positive and negative traits will end in tears.
