Flag Flyer is a term of abuse in Britain unless it's this flag!

I noted the other day how those in the liberal political and media elites have, for years, sneared at anyone flying the  Union Flag. Indeed, I think, the term flag waver actually became a term of abuse at some point amomng those who tend to have #FBPE in their twitter handles. But at least the UK does not spaff taxpayers cash on a “Flags team.” Unlike …

"My Body My Choice" - Hooters in Liverpool and abortion

The slogan is one used by those who want a woman’s right to murder an unborn baby protected at all costs. It is her body she can do whatever she wants with it and with what is inside it.  I do not agree with this for reasons I have articulated many times but I accept that it is a line of argument some use. However, there is an application to open a Hooters Bar in Liverpool just up the road from me. The picture below is of a number of young ladies dressed in the er…corporate uniform.

Photo artcle from a wonderful day out at Parkgate

After the Dee silted up near Chester the main port moved down river to Parkgate. Eventually it silted up too and Liverpool became the departure point for Ireland. Had this all happened today the BBC and others would shriek on about man made climate change but 200 years ago folks just knew that God played his little jokes on nature.

These SinnFein/IRA scum do not speak for Liverpool however much they rewrite history

The tweet below shows some scousers honouring the 40th anniversary of the death of Bobby Sands, terming him “The People’s Own MP.” I suggest to you that these Fenian scum, whose souls will surely burn in hell, are rewriting history and also do not speak for the vast majority of Liverpuddlians, most of whom will be horrified by this.

The BBC smears Gladstone with slavery lies as Students rename his building in Liverpool

The BBC is today celebrating a milestone in a renaming process at Liverpool University. In response to student demands, the building, a hall of residence, is no longer named after William Ewart Gladstone. Instead, it is to be named after someone “linked to the theme of racial equality and Liverpool”. I cannot wait and nominate the late George Floyd who once listened to a Beatles LP. But, whether fed by the students or just ignorant in its own way, the BBC cannot help itself in lying about the grand old man of Liberal politics with two doses of fake news.

Liverpool cops should arrest themselves for both breaking the law and being woke Orwellian arseholes

Merseyside police do not have any useful work to do. After all, there were only 49,414 violent crimes in the Merseyside area in 2020. That is 135 a day. So with nothing better to do, I bring you a picture of four cops from the supposedly cash-strapped Merseyside Force “in action” outside an Asda in Liverpool yesterday. They are, of course, breaking the law.

Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel - if art imitated life, my Northern cats part 3

We started this tale with my wife suggesting that we buy a cat basket for Sian & Quincey our rescue cats from the grim North, that is to say Liverpool. “Oh no” I objected on their behalf, “cat baskets are for soft southerners, when we were young we lived in cardboard boxes”. I put two out and the cats dreamed of sleeping in cardboard boxes. “In the old days in the North we were poor but we were happy” they said, as in the Monty Python sketch.

Photo Article from the Welsh Hovel: Cat in a box

The Mrs thinks that when boxes are emptied of Christmas presents, they should be thrown away or just plausibly used for lighting the woodburning stove. Not that she has done that once. But the cats and I know what boxes are really for.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: From my Grandparents in Eaton Square to a planned road trip to the Burnley welfare safari

In this podcast I look at the utterly fascistic behaviour of lawyers Fladgates and why I am not taking the fight to them to stop an Orwellian attempt to close this website down by telling lies. I look at how past events causes us to do crazy things - that is my Grandparents and Adept Telecom (ADT). I look at madness at Beowulf (BEM) and end with news of a, very much on the cards, road trip to Liverpool and Burnley. This section contains shockingly bad language from Mahmud of (BOO).

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - Sound Oil, FastJet to Cloudtag, gravity cant be defied forever

I have met with an unprecedented barrage of hate and harassment from folks in Liverpool as I describe here. Moving on from that I ad my thoughts to those of Gary Newman on Sound Energy (SOU) and Graham Neary on FastJet (FJET) and chip in with a few ideas on Motif Bio (MTFB), African Potash (FRAUD), GLI Finance (GLIF) and Cloudtag (CTAG)

Tom Winnifrith postcard - time for some folks in Liverpool to apologise to me

After pointing out the grave ethical failings of a Liverpool media celeb yesterday I have been met with a massive response by folks in Liverpool who have responded to my banter about welfare addiction and thieving with a barrage of twitter hate. What is it with these twitter addicts? Don't they have jobs to go to? Some of the abuse is arguably criminal and it reflects badly on a City increasingly, and sadly, known for mawkish self pity. FFS Liverpool just grow up. As I prepare to receive more harassing phone calls today I share a few thoughts about a City that I have many reasons not to hate, as it has been suggested that I do..

Humourless bastard, DJ and TV presenter Jay Hynd tries to floor me on behalf of his welfare addicted, thieving neighbours in Liverpool

I have wasted too much of my time with a long exchange of emails this morning with a humourless bastard called Jay Ryan who appears to be a DJ, TV presenter and web presenter in Liverpool. One of the few folks in a City wherer idling is in theb genes, to get up at 10 AM he seems offended by comments I made on twitter. Jay started it off with the offering below which I retweeted with the comment

West Ham out of the Cup - Bilic Out! (Only Kidding)

Slaven Bilic has had an amazing first season as manager of West Ham and if anything I warm to him after we got knocked out of the cup for simply admitting that on the day the better side won. It makes a nice change from managers blaming the ref or saying "we was robbed". But I cannot hide my disappointment, none the less. The winner of that replay had to be favourite for the cup as we entered the semi-finals and I just felt it might be "our season".

I did my bit

Liverpool Caption Contest No 2 - Growth Industry Discovered in Scouse welfare safari

I take it all back. Having suggested that the entuire population of Liverpool were workshy welfare addicts I apologise. It seems that there is one industry that is booming in the Scouse welfare safari. The local paper (The Liverpool Echo) boasts that the City has become a net exporter. Can you guess of what? Er... As scouse twitter bums urge their fellow welfare grazers to abuse me how about folks in the hard working South of England suggest suitable captions for this picture in the comments section below

Caption Contest: Shocker for Liverpool as scousers told they must work to 76

Does stealing hub caps count as work? If being a professional full time "victim" now regarded as a career choice? Is drug dealing now seen as a career in retail distribution. This tweet below from the Liverpool Echo opens up so many possibilities.

Can you suggest a suitable caption designed to offend as many of the pathologically workshy residents of the crime infested welfare safari that is Liverpool as possible. Remember this is a City where folks always suffer because it is someone else's fault and ayone who suggests otherwise is forced to apologise.

West Ham - defying Mark Lawrenson, it all seems so different these days

Before the FA Cup 3rd round tie against Wolves yesterday there were two big calls. Once again TV pundit Lauro called out West Ham to lose in one of the day's big upsets. Happily Lauro was once again wrong. The other big call was from our relatively new manager Slaven Bilic who said that he'd rather win the FA Cup than finish in the top four of the Premiership so ensuring Champions League football next year at the Olympic Stadium. These are not the sort of words long term Hammers are used to hearing.

The BBC is RIGHT to suspend and maybe sack Jeremy Clarkson

I have defended Jeremy Clarkson when he has been attacked unfairly – for instance when he made a series of factually accurate comments about the workshy semi feral population of the welfare safari that is the slum Liverpool.  I cannot think that I have ever written a pleasant word about the politically correct nest of paedophile friendly vipers that is the BBC – I would privatise it at once. But for once I stand firm with the waste of taxpayers cash that is the Beeb.

Clarkson is alleged to have thrown a punch at an employee of top gear. In every single workplace in the country such conduct would see anyone – even a CEO – suspended pending an investigation and, if found guilty, fired. Simply being a celebrity does not buy you an exemption. O it should not buy you an exemption.

I see that Noel Edmonds is arguing that the BBC should accept that “stars” have to be treated differently. Rubbish. One of the facets of the sad decline of Britain is our lamentable worship of the cult of celebrity. Folks want to be famous just to be famous. And when you are famous somehow you get to live by different rules.

Maybe that is the way our nation is going. Maybe simply by being famous you can be allowed to hit your staff. What else are you allowed to do as a celeb which we plebs cannot do? Steal, cheat, murder? I don’t know but where exactly do the celeb-worshippers draw the line?

It was, arguably, this cult of celebrity that allowed Saville, Hall, Harris and the other monsters to get away with what they did. 

Call me old fashioned

Jeremy Clarkson is not an oaf or a buffoon for describing the welfare safari that is Liverpool 100% correctly

A balding and obese individual who turns out to be the Lord Mayor of the welfare safari crime hotspot known as Liverpool has branded Jeremy Clarkson as an “oaf and a buffoon” and for “stigmatising” the post-industrial Merseyside wasteland, saying “People up there earn less, die more quickly, have fewer jobs and live in houses that are worth the square root of sod all.”

As it happens on this matter Clarkson is 100% factually correct. He is not stigmatising the folks in Liverpool he is giving an accurate assessment of life up there. Clarkson may or may not be an oaf and a buffoon but his latest statement does not prove that matter either way because he is simply telling the truth.

The reaction of the lard-bucket Lord Mayor (has he ever had a real job in his life?)

Weekly Caption Contest: Overpaid, generous pension, long holidays what do we want…MORE! Edition

For once the Mrs was not on strike with the rest of the public sector last week. The University Lecturers have already staged several walk outs this year and why on earth would they interrupt a three month break in the sun to turn up for a protest. But the rest of the comrades walked out. Did you notice the Country crumbling?

Public sector workers now earn more on average than those in the private sector. It is almost impossible for them to get fired – job security is 100%. They get guaranteed final salary pensions. They get more holiday – and throw more sickies than those in the private sector and what do they want? More!

They are an innumerate bunch.

Thrashed by Liverpool – when does Fat Sam Allardyce get axed?

Losing to Liverpool is not really a shock. But surrendering from the opening whistle as West Ham did is not impressive. Fat Sam Allardyce has apparently once again used the word “unlucky” in relation to this latest humiliation. What planet is he on?

Liverpool attempted 36 shots during the game. In a sense they were unlucky. It could have been 8-1.

The only bright spot is that Kevin Nolan was sent off and so misses our next three games. He is having a dire season. The way the other results panned out yesterday and our abject form and tough set of fixtures ahead leaves me with a fear that come New Year (or even sooner) West ham could be bottom of the league with Fat Sam

Hull named UK City of Culture 2017 – is this irony?

Sooner or later every Grim Northern Shit Hole will be named the UK City of Culture.  Glasgow, a City noted for its obesity epidemic and religious bigotry but little else of note since 1945, has held the title. Liverpool where 95% of the population are on welfare or are habitual thieves has also been a City of Culture. And so it is only natural that Hull should get its turn in 2017 fighting off fierce competition from other post-industrial wastelands where folks have an average IQ of less than the X-factor audience: Dundee, Leicester and Swansea.

The poet Philip Larkin, although born in Coventry, made Hull his home.  But he died in 1985. Since then Hull has given us er ……um.

The town is also the birthplace of actress Maureen Lipman (everyone’s fave North London Jewish granny) and of Geneses P-Orridge, the artist who came to fame in the 1970s with a vast sculpture made of Tampax boxes. The group Atomic Kitten performed there last year.

Hull is indeed a worthy winner (after heavy taxpayer funded lobbying from its local council) of this prestigious title.

Well done Hull. For 2018 nominations are now open. It strikes me that with its cultural quarter Stoke is too classy to win so how about a short list of Rotherham (famed for its child snatching, must be some literary trail there), Newcastle ( birthplace of the UK’s most talented chanteuse, Ms Cheryl Cole) and Sheffield which brought us Joe Elliot, the literary and poetic genius behind Def Leppard.  All three councils can then spend taxpayers cash enthusiastically to lobby to follow in the footsteps of Hull.

West Ham vs Liverpool Match Preview

Sign on, sign on, with a pen in your hand, and you’ll never work again. Sign on. Sign on.

Or perhaps given the time of year and a chance to think of those less fortunate than ourselves a few choruses of “Feed the scousers, let them know it’s Christmas time.” Actually I have no hard feelings for Liverpool. My Aunt Lucy’s family are all Liverpool fans and my sister was born there. She clearly picked up the Souse mindset in those early days. As a Doctor paid £50,000 plus for two days a week she fits in well: living off the state and not doing much work.

When football Santa grants me the chance to decide the league table, I won’t really be thinking about Liverpool. Naturally Santa and I will start at the top. West Ham to come first. Then Santa and I will head straight to the other end. The old man in the beard does not need to ask the first question. Spurs to finish bottom. And then

Why our drugs policy does not work – a Liverpool example

Thanks to the Ambush Predator blog for this tale of utter hopelessness which shows why our current drugs policy is such a disaster. The blog recounts:

A Liverpool shoplifter snubbed the help that had been given her by travelling to Blackburn and stealing just six days after completing a residential drug rehabilitation programme.

The chairman of the magistrates, Vanessa Pickup, said residential rehabilitation places were like “gold dust.”

“You were given a chance many people would give their right arm for,” said Mrs Pickup. “Your response was to come out, and six days later travel to Blackburn to steal.”

And so a custodial sentence was imposed.

She was jailed for 12 weeks.

Gareth Price, defending, had been faced with a large electricity bill and a drug debt and found herself in dire financial straits.

Okay so let’s work this out. Our heroin (or whatever drug it is) addicted scouser friend has to find a very large amount of money each week to buy a commodity (heroin) which costs nothing to produce. Her welfare cheques are not enough. So she steals. Not big amounts but enough to piss off a series of shop owners and homeowners in Liverpool.

8 Per Cent Yields from Liverpool – Obviously Spam says gmail

Once in a while I look in my gmail spam box to see what has been filtered out. I am delighted to see that I have won 1.5 million quid in the Euro Lottery several times. For a bloke who has never bought a lottery ticket in his life I do seem blessed. Rather that is a good call by gmail – it is a con and sits rightly in the spam box.

There are a number of emails from West Africa also promising me great riches. I am contacted by Mr Dorso Sandwidi from Burkino Fasso who asks me to not reveal what he is up to. Sorry Dorso I cannot resist. Does anyone ever fall for hogwash like this?
