And once again, Liverpool leads the way, (moronic, idiocy, plain stupidity)

St. Helen’s Star

In a rare show of solidarity, two hundred plus surgeons, medical specialists and senior medical professionals blocked the road leading to Alder Hey hospital the other day, all in support of the parents of a brain-dead child who now is breathing on his own, but who is likely to die when the automatic synapses controlling his respiratory functions lose stimulus, as they no longer are receiving input from that unfortunate small boy’s brain.

And once again, Liverpool leads the way, (moronic, idiocy, plain stupidity)

The crowd who were chanting, blocking the road and then making an attempt to storm the hospital entrance must have all been medically qualified, as only truly well-educated professionals would be, with the breadth of experience necessary to make complex diagnoses at a distance; to the extent that they would band together and attempt to overturn the decisions of both the consultants and specialists within Alder Hey, and the vast bank of legal knowledge and precedent which guided the High Court, the Supreme Court, and the Court of Appeal.

And once again, Liverpool leads the way, (moronic, idiocy, plain stupidity)

I mean to state, this crowd of ‘concerned supporters’ of that truly sad, but unfortunately brain-dead small body must be overwhelmingly qualified to protest and react as they have been doing, mustn’t they? I just cannot believe that the baying crowd, with their inane caterwauling chants of ‘Save Alfie Evans’ aren’t all medically qualified; but are just a pack of low-I.Q. Liverpool morons, gathered together as only a bunch of ill-educated and squabbling ‘Scousers’ can do, making trouble for the police, and attempting to overturn a legal decision to withdraw life support for that tiny body. They appear to be in the same grade of ‘super-intellect’ which could not tell the difference between a paeadophile and a paeadiatrician. The only thing which does surprise me is they aren’t all wailing ‘You’ll never walk alone”, possibly because even they realise that tiny Alfie isn’t going to be walking anywhere, alone or accompanied, ever again!

Baroness Cox’s truthful words and opinions on Syria

So refreshing to hear a different and totally-unexpected viewpoint on Syria, especially when the world was condemning the alleged  Syrian ‘chemical weaponry attacks’.

Baroness CoxA spirited Lady Cox, a House of Lords Life Peer, who sits on the Crossbenches, meaning she supports neither Party, was a guest on BBC Today a couple of days back (BBC Link, with Lady Cox’; at around 02:33.56), The good Baroness, despite the determined interruptions of the ultra-liberal and ultra-righteous Justin Webb, made her points clearly and managed to shut the outraged tones of Webb down to a dull murmur. Her views on the American, French and British missile attack was to assert that the attacks on Syria, on a sovereign Government and nation were illegal, immoral and unjustified. She stated that she visited not only Damascus, but also Aleppo and Homs, both places retaken from the iron grip of the true terrorists in this savage conflict, the Al-Nusra Front and Al-Queada, along with the Army of Islam. Whilst in those now peaceful places, she found many who praised the Assad government, which is what we should all have been doing from the start of this conflict.

Despite Webb’s horrified comments to the effect that she had been taking tea with (his words and opinion) mass murderers, Lady Cox kept her bat straight, and replied that there had been four thousand hostages held captive in Douma by the Jihadis, and when the area was eventually liberated, some two hundred came out alive. She also made the point, also expressed by others, that the chemical attack, IF IT HAD HAPPENED AT ALL, may well have been carried out by one of the Jihadi Terror Groups fighting the Assad government. As she would be addressed when in the House of Lords, the Noble Lady  gave as good as she received, inclusive of the rare phrase, used to interrupt a BBC pillock who just would not stop attempting to guide the conversation the way which he wanted ” Could I answer….Thank you” and it was a frustrated Julian Webb who cut the conversation short when he could not get the Noble Lady to agree with him!

But the worst few words was spoken with a bitter contempt by Webb for the one-time favourite of the BBC Today’s ultra-goody-two-shoes brigade, Giles Fraser, who was one of the team members on the Syria trip. He had tweeted great sympathy for the Assad Government: and we can’t have someone breaking ranks, especially one as high-profiled as the good Reverend Fraser!

Jeremy Corbyn. Anti-semitic? Or realistic?

We have all read of the Labour Party’s Jewish problem, or rather Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party Leader’s problem. The anti-semitic sneers from Party members, the (alleged) jokes against anyone who shows or exhibits the slightest sign of sympathy for both Israel and Jews in general. The vicious comments on Twitter which show up and just as quickly are deleted. The silence from that same Leader when any sign of anti-Semitism is noted, the deep hesitation when demands are made to have one or more Party members investigated, suspended or dismissed from the Party. The reluctance to even accept that Labour itself has a ‘Jewish problem’, even though many prominent Party members are Jewish themselves.

Corbyn’s problem stems, as far as I can understand, from many strands of his early life and passage through Parliament. He has always had great sympathy for the ‘underdog’. In his own eyes and mind; never mind his political version of reality, anyone, individual or group, standing against Israel is likened to a twisted version of ‘David versus Goliath’: with Israel as the ‘Goliath’, the bully, the friend of America: and any who stand against Israel as that ‘David’.

He spoke of Hamas as “an organization that is dedicated towards the good of the Palestinian people and bringing about long-term peace and social justice and political justice in the whole region.” Hamas: the one organisation whose very Charter calls for the destruction of the State of Israel; the terror organisation which insists that the thousands of rockets stored and fired from schools, homes and hospitals are but a symbol of a People yearning to be free. How free is but a statement, as the only opposition to Hamas in Gaza was ruthlessly hunted down and slaughtered.

Corbyn extended a hand to Raed Salah, a preacher of hate associated with the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel. “He is far from a dangerous man,” Corbyn posited rather oddly. “He is a very honoured citizen. He represents his people extremely well and his is a voice that must be heard.”

The unfortunate truth about the stench of anti-semitism which hangs around Labour, and around the very body and mind of Jeremy Corbyn is one of Numbers. He knows that there are approximately 300,000 Jewish people living in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. He also knows that he cannot really count upon the votes of the Jewish community as a voting bloc, mainly because the Jews are as sensitive as American sonar to jibes, jokes and sneers as the grass in the fields is to the wind.

But it is because he is, first and foremost a Labour politician to his very fingertips that he really doesn’t worry about that same stench, because his base, in a hundred towns and cities, is anchored and sustained within the Islamic community. It is the one thing which wipes out all the centuries-old arguments between Sunni and Shia, along with all the sub-sects and marginalised children of Muhammed: it is the true detestation of Israel, of the Jews, of anything connected with International Judaism. He will not condemn anti-semitism within his own Party, because that, folks; is the one thing which would hack away at the very foundations of the Muslim support and Muslim voting strength: for the Labour Party.

Labour’s very ethos has been overtaken by the Hard-Left, with Momentum breathing down the very constituencies of moderate Labour MPs. This has taken place because the people who remembered what the Labour Voters actually thought of Hard-line Left ideals, Communist practices and Socialist principles have nearly all either disappeared from Party structures, or they have been sidelined by the new Old Labour; red in tooth and claw. They forgot that it took Neil Kinnock nearly five years to rid his Labour Party of Militant; and it took Tony Blair to make a moderate Labour Party electable.

Corbyn can count, and 300,000 votes are cancelled out by 2,750,000 Muslim votes for Labour: and that is why we only get words, and not very strong words at that, from the anti-semitic side of Jeremy Corbyn.

Hail loss and sadness, and Farewell!

Far from the madding crowd’s ignoble strife,
Their sober wishes never learn’d to stray;
Along the cool sequester’d vale of life
They kept the noiseless tenour of their way.

Thomas Gray. Elegy in a country churchyard

I am a father, and a grandfather. I have known loss, which comes more bitter than the sourest lime or lemon. I have lost a father and mother, an eldest brother and a sister, who died when just sixteen. I have lost, as many of us have, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, friends and longtime best friends. But so far, I have been lucky, I have not tasted the bitterness of losing a child; so I cannot speak or write from first-hand knowledge of what it must feel like.

So I write as a spectator, when reading, discussing or even attempting to understand the savage pain when facing the truth that your son is not just dying; he is really already dead. The specialists have conferred, the readings off the Electro-Encephalograph and all the other monitoring devices have been studied, and the best medical minds have attempted to tell you the truth: that the body which is lying on that medical bed, sustained by machinery to breath, with artificial means of pumping his blood through his arteries, is no longer capable of life.

They have pleaded with you to let him rest with dignity, they have stood and given their solemn words upon oath that they can do no more. They, those medical professionals, have travelled through the Courts, have watched as you have battled against accepting the truth, the final verdicts from those wise and learned Judges have been pronounced.

It is time to let go,Tom Evans and Kate James, to leave that tragic bedside, and let tiny Alfie’s body commence its journey towards a gravesite which has probably already been allocated and prepared!
