Quotations

The real revolution in the Labour party, which most of Fleet Street has never understood, was inflicted not by Trotskyists, but by the legions of the dull — Eurocommunists who realised Bolshevism was obsolete, quietly captured think tanks and policy committees, and used the apolitical figure of Tony Blair as the front for a Gramscian cultural, constitutional, educational and sexual revolution, whose greatest triumph was to capture the Tory party as well as the Labour party.

Peter Hitchens


The elites are not the problem. The population at the moment is the problem.

German President Joachim Gauck

This is something we are seeing all over, the top detaching itself from the bottom, feeling little loyalty to it or affiliation with it. It is a theme I see working its way throughout the West’s power centers. At its heart it is not only a detachment from, but a lack of interest in, the lives of your countrymen, of those who are not at the table, and who understand that they’ve been abandoned by their leaders’ selfishness and mad virtue-signalling.

Peggy Noonan on Angela Merkel


The Church did a great thing for love when she made a sin of it.

Anatole France

  1. RamsaySkyNews fully staging a dangerous arms deal and traffic, Corbyn sitting on the floor near empty seats, it definitely seems you Englander have the manipulative lie in blood.
    Sad clowns, you manipulated yourselves to the end, Brexit being the epitome of it.
    If ridiculousness were lethal, how many of you would be dead ?
    Still sitting and waiting for GodotBrexit ...

  2. I confess myself to be an anglo-phile despite their abysmal treatment of my Irish ancestors as well as their most recent love of the PC culture. I was very pleased to see Brexit success and congratulate them on the opportunity to regain their own sovereignty. The US is filled with Merkels and Gaucks and alot of them are already in high office, MSM and what passes for higher education.

    I've very much enjoyed your "man on the ground" posts on Brexit.

    Enjoy the quotes too. I'm quite a quote collector and grabbed a few that you've posted for my own quote journal!
