On A Wing And A Prayer.
Although it’s only relevant in the US, it seems appropriate that the UK general election is being held today, National Prayer Day. With the amount of prayers coming out of Britain today, I hope the Good Lord has a high bandwidth connection. Gordon Brown In Skip’s article from May 3rd, ‘Our Founding Documents… The Foundations Of Freedom’, he said that “Many, back in the days | Read More »

French to buy the White Cliffs of Dover from UK Labour government
Staggering under a national debt of £830billion ($1.245 trillion) for a nation only about the size of California with a population about twice that state’s, the UK’s Labour Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, is selling off its hard asset Dover Port to its historical arch-enemy, France, in a benighted attempt at debt reduction through privatization. Although the UK already has sold off its other major ports | Read More »
Terror Plot – Another Black Mark For Britain.
Yet again there is a connection between an attempted terrorist attack and Britain. Another ‘home grown’ would-be mass murderer whose plot fortunately went awry. There is precious little good news in the press these days and every item regarding the so-called ‘United’ Kingdom seems to be another nail in the coffin of a once proud, honorable nation. After World War II Britain was lacking in | Read More »
Hillary’s 100 Billion Largesse To Third World Dictatorships – Your Dollars!!
Isn’t it wonderful? Mrs Clinton spending money we DON’T HAVE now, the way she wished she could have spent it during her husband’s presidency. Gives you that warm glow, like a bonfire at the State Department. That fuzzy feeling that all liberals know and love, when their ‘well intended’ programs create HAVOC that they don’t have to pay for, solve, or be held responsible for | Read More »
Well, our President took time off from his busy schedule to lend his weight to Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Olympic Games. And fell flat on his face. The games went to Rio de Janeiro instead of Chicago. In fact Chicago had the least votes among the finalists. While Obama no doubt expected to be carried through the city on the shoulders of adulating fans, | Read More »

Gordon Brown’s right to silence
English cricket fans were delighted when their team defeated Australia – long the foremost nation in international cricket. Supporters of Brighton & Hove Albion Football (soccer) Club were no doubt joyous when their team escaped relegation from top flight English football. Supporters of both teams were no doubt pleased, if a little surprised, to learn that British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, was sharing vicariously | Read More »
Sometimes, I miss Tony Blair.
Say what you like about the man – and there is quite a lot to say about him – but he and his government had precisely zero interest in letting the Lockerbie bomber walk free under the open sky. Even if doing so might have meant holding up an important oil deal: During Blair’s 2007 visit, BP signed its exploration deal with Libya’s National Oil | Read More »
Caught Flat-Footed – A Time-Line
“The Libyan man convicted of the Lockerbie bombing is likely to be freed on compassionate grounds next week, the BBC understands.” August 13th 2009 And so the saga began. Scottish officials floated the trial balloon of freeing the lone convicted murderer of the Lockerbie bombing that killed 270 people. While Conservative MP’s called for hearings, the Gordon Brown Labour government did nothing. They could feel | Read More »
Just…ick Embattled British Prime Minister Gordon Brown in his remarks before a crowd of veterans and others mistakenly referred to Omaha Beach as “Obama Beach”. After a bruising week in the Commons it was hard to imagine how things could get worse for the beleaguered Prime Minister. In his speech he referred to ‘Obama Beach’ rather than Omaha Beach, the correct name of the scene | Read More »
The obligatory “Yet another British MEP unloads on PM Gordon Brown” post
As I understand it, British MEP Nigel Farage had his own rant aimed squarely at UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown just a few minutes before the sensational dressing down from MEP Daniel Hannen began. The word “devalued” also features prominently: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1waGanUNt0 With all of the attention Hannen got, Nigel must be feeling a little under appreciated!
I wish this guy was speaking to Obama
Daniel Hannan, a Member of European Parliament, absolutely blasts UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. “You are the devalued prime minister of a devalued government.” Replace prime minister with president and it paints a picture of Washington D.C. God help us! -Crippy’s World
Barack Obama and Gordon Brown: Surrounded by crisis, “opportunity.”
Cross posted to The Political Class. The Left is threatening our freedom by using the downturn to bolster the power of the state, says Janet Daley of the Telegraph: The story so far: some capitalists behaved very badly. While this was going on, the socialists didn’t ask questions because they were too busy spending the receipts that flowed from that behaviour. Now, the socialists – | Read More »
The Cut Direct
I’ve never been one to particularly care about the the opinions of other countries — no permanent friends, just permanent interests and all that — but I am a believer in the principle of never being unintentionally rude.While intentional rudeness has a valuable place in relationships between nations and people, unintentional rudeness is nothing more than poor breeding. It is one thing to walk out | Read More »
