Shouldn’t Poland be taking in more African refugees? Poland is a large EU country with a booming economy.
Last time I looked, Poland wasn’t the First Safe Country for any African country. Nor any Middle Eastern one. It is, however, First Safe Country for Ukraine, so in accordance with the relevant international treaty that is actually signed up to by our nations, namely the Dublin Accord, (as opposed to making new laws up as you go along, which is what some leaders in the EU, notably Merkel, have been doing) it accepts refugees from that country, and has done so far in excess of its duty, with about a million Ukrainians having benefited from an open door to Poland. And this in spite of Ukrainians having been responsible for some of the worst massacres against Poles in living memory. They are not exactly natural allies. In the main Ukrainians get on OK, and are popular, but there are those who need to keep their views to themselves as they would be quickly excoriated if they expressed Banderista tendencies in Poland. As long as they treat the Poles as friends, it is reciprocated.
As far as economic migrants are concerned there is no point in accepting these from Africa in a big lump but for sure there might be some who have skills we need, and indeed you do see Africans around, and I have been to a fine Nigerian doctor here in Warsaw, probably some of the people from Poland reading this post know who I mean, I will not embarrass him by naming him but there are several African doctors here and people like this man will always have an open door to Poland.
But they are also needed by their home countries, so accepting Africa’s best is not necessarily a brilliant moral high ground either. Still, I do believe in freedom of movement for those who have talent and hard work. It is up to them, after that, what they do for their country of origin. On the one hand it seems unfair to drain the best brains from Nigeria, but on the other hand we can expect that among 200 million there will be some more with brains who would like to solve the considerable problems that country still has. Maybe a partnership between them and their countrymen and tribesmen resident in Europe and America will enable them to do more. I only hope the best for the Nigeria people as any African nation.
Now I should say clearly one more thing. Poland is not interested in allowing armies in. When Ukrainians come, we see couples, families, and singles of both sexes. When North Africans come we see men who ought to be fighting for their homes, not leaving women and children behind to fight us for our spaces, which they will go on to ruin because the sort of people who cannot make their own country right cannot make ours right either.
We’ve been told by al-Baghdadi and his baggy buddies that the refugee stream will contain trained jihadis but so far this threat doesn’t seem to have been taken seriously enough in Europe. I get “innocent till proven guilty” but when you consider that the people who have been barging into Europe have already broken multiple laws to get here and linked themselves up with gangs on insalubrious people, I think we would be justified in suspending that grand maxim of jurisprudence in the interests of the safety of those we already have in our part of the world who live peaceably and pay their taxes.
I will admit that it is a major headscratch to know how to distinguish jihadies from ordinary people, it is not like they walk around with “I’m a jihadi” written on their faces (they don’t do tattoos, that’s one thing I actually like about them), but the most serious agents are of course going to have like a “dispensation” to behave in a non-Islamic manner to avoid suspicion. Just because someone has a drink with you and enjoys a ham sandwich and is nowhere near the Masjid on a Friday night – it’s no guarantee, I’m afraid. On the other hand there are plenty in the Masjid who wouldn’t hurt a fly, and you can’t tell for sure who they are, either.
People used to say that Russians were like matryoshka dolls, with different levels that you peel off to get to the next one, but in my experience, Russians are “Israelites in whom there is no guile” in comparison with the sons of the desert. And Uighurs, I have heard it said, are like onions.
If people genuinely fleeing conflict need help in the First Safe Country for sure Poland will send aid commensurate with its economy and in accordance with what the law intends and not Mrs Merkel and her great solo performance of holiday help. Poland has footed its share of the bill for measures undertaken both in Turkey and in Greece. And Greece itself is only First Safe Country if you say that Turkey is unsafe. I think the jury may well be out on that one.

There is a Truther movement out there, in which many people actually unmask some conspiracies and talk a lot of truth, but if we follow them, we are no better off than if we believed the conspiracies in the first place.
Do you remember that bit in Acts of the Apostles where there is a soothsayer lady who follows Paul and Silas, telling everyone that they were servants of God and shewing the way of salvation? This is Acts 16:16, by the way. Have a look, it is interesting. She says true things but Paul can tell that she has a demon and casts it out, in the name of Jesus Christ.
This shows us how the devil’s servants will be perfectly happy to tell quite a lot of truth in order to get in on the inside, and then subvert. This is one of the ways how infiltration and subversion has happened in many (read “most, to a greater or lesser extent”) churches. The bad guys only wear black hats and the good guys wear white hats in the cowboy films, in real life it is far more nuanced and complex. In the second of the Temptations of Christ, Satan shows him all the worldly powers and says he can hand them to Him if He will only bow to him, which he does not. But Jesus also does not deny that these worldly powers were indeed put under Satan’s control. We therefore can assume that Satan has his emissaries in charge in many, many situations and has infiltrated all sorts of situations and he plays the cards and rolls his loaded dice on both sides of the game. There are many portions of scripture where the same is inculcated to us in God’s word for us.
You get these shady elites who wield power and right now are making governments borrow from them so that the power of Antichrist to demand mandatory vaccines and chips, and the movement to world single government and universal false religion will be facilitated because the countries which pretend to democracies will have mortgaged themselves to the hilt to these people. China etc are long since owned by them. These are hurrying in the scenario we read of in Revelation. Then you get other shady Truther people who, like the soothsayer in Acts, point this out, and yet blame the wrong thing, they blame the Jews, they blame the Lizards, they blame the Christians, the Communists, the Trumpists, the Chinese, the Zionists, the Muslims, all sorts. And they are able to find fault with all these groups and make apparently convincing arguments, so that a Christian could easily get defocused. They just don’t ever explain how Satan is playing everyone and how the only way out is to turn with all one’s heart to the Biblical Jesus and find Him in prayer. Whoever understands this has the main explanation and has the compass to hold onto to come out of all of this safe. Who doesn’t have this focus but tries to unravel the various paths and mechanisms of this evil in their own strength quickly gets lost.
And David Icke’s role, and not only his, there are quite a few others, is to look like the guy who has the answers, and all that happens is people end up believing in the Age of Aquarius coming which will allow humanity to gain enough positive vibrations to unite and defeat the alien lizards. At the same time he brings out all the old chestnuts of how people have had legitimate grievances with the Church (usually because of some Satanic infiltration by the same one who is playing Icke). So in the end he presents a complete alternative, Christless gospel. Every lie has some truth, or it has no power. There is indeed a “reptile”, whom the Bible calls the old Serpent. But this is Satan, and not some gang of aliens. There are vibrations of course in everything, waves of all frequencies are passing through all molecules all the time, but then putting ideas like “good and bad” onto these is spurious and unhelpful. It is not relevant to what we need to know to be saved. The answer in Jesus Himself, the Way, the Truth and the Life. We don’t need “truthers”, “truthing”, etc, we need the One who is the Truth. We need to embrace the living Christ in repentance and faith.
The Name of Jesus has power over all demons, those on the one side and on the other, and on the one behind all these subterfuges and nuances of evil. Paul only needed this one name of Jesus Christ, the name that is above all other nomenclature, whether natural or supernatural.
That’s how it works, my friends, and I delight over every brother or sister who gets it.
“Twenty years of silence
Were bottled up inside her
She wasn’t holding nothing back
The media got it all
When Charlotte left the press room
Not a Johnsonite was standing
She said “This one’s for Brexit!”
As she watched the last one fall.”

The Muslims may want to change England into their own system, but that’s their way. They can’t help themselves and converting under duress and fighting for more and more territory is all they have ever known. The ones who *should* know better are the western namby- pamby liberals who won’t let us protect ourselves and our culture because they are still shocked by what happened under fascism in Germany, and what was done to the innocent Jews. And so now we daren’t stand up and react assertively and protect ourself even when it is warranted, as now when a real threat to our culture and society comes along, not just the economic success of a different group within our diversity, which anyone is welcome to. These people are programmed by their deen to destroy us and the Jews together, and it’ll be all down to people in our own group who have liberal ideas they naively sucked in from the media, and also people like lawyers who win rights for these people in exchange for making money for themselves at the expense of everyone else in society.
Can we finally understand that “politically correct” is a way of saying “incorrect” and bring some common sense and assertiveness back in the way we deal with these people? The ones who should be vilified are not the misguided believers in Islam, who are the victims in this anyway, but the people who are from our society but who are standing by and applauding or denying as Islam gains ground in Europe. If they want to know what fascism really is, all they need to do is wait till Islam is in control in Europe. But then it will be too late.”

This video h a s i t a l l !
Well, so it should, bearing in mind it lasts nearly an hour! Still, I would be very pleased if my dear listeners would sit back and just enjoy the show. Get a coffee!
Here’s some of what awaits you:
* Relaxing scenes from Warsaw’s Szczesliwicki park
* One of the rantiest impromptu rants I ever did.
* A unique ride through the park and Ochota in Warsaw’s (I believe) only family rickshaw. (There are a handful of commercial rickshaws in Lazienkowski Park for tourists, but I never saw them elsewhere, and only for hire, whereas mine isn’t)
* Creative use of the new annotations function, including lyrics to some of the background music and supplementary info. These annotations can and will be added to during the active life of the video.
* And to cap it all a couple of interesting pieces of incidental music in the background which I made a few years ago, and have been meaning to incorporate for some time.
BTW For people in Poland wanting to get a rickshaw like mine, the place to go is
If there is any interest in founding a rickshaw society for Poland or an international one, anywhere on the interenet, let me know. It seems the natural answer to the fuel crisis, but we need to lobby cities for wider paved areas, and for the space between bollards which prevent car access still to be broadly spaced enough to allow rickshaw access. Also they don’t go up kerbs very well, so kerbs need to be smoothed off at road crossings.
Jacinda Ardern, the Prime Minister of New Zealand, found herself in the limelight in the wake of the murder of 50 Muslims in two Christchurch mosques two weeks ago.
Among her reactions were:
– a refusal to stay the name of the lone-wolf psychopath white supremacist Tarrant who committed these acts and filmed himself doing it. In doing so she went against the advice of Dumbledore to Harry Potter not to be afriad to name Voldemort, as failing to be willing to say the name of evil gives it more power. “Fear of the name increases fear of the thing itself” is the relevant quote, which will enable anyone wishing to to research this farther to Google for more info.
– an insistence on calling him a “terrorist”. This graces a criminal psycho with being “another man’s freedom fighter”. The man was simply a nutjob whackjob. Don’t make a martyr out of him.
– Curtailing civil liberties to buy guns. It would have been sufficient to enable NZ citizens who had local driving licences and a background check to buy them, to avert this happening. The slow reaction time of the police shows that a larger amount of gun carrying by the NZ community rather than less availibility might have saved lives. Villains will always get guns. Rogue state operatives, and operatives of rogue states will always get guns.
– Asking women to wear the symbol of submission, whereby in Islam they admit that they are less than men and are only worth half of what a man is worth, as their scripture says. In doing so, Arden also played to the crowd and made significant hand signs in her hijab, namely the Khamsah sign, or “Hand of Fatima” associated with Fatima the mother of Mohammed, Mary the Mother of Jesus, Diana, Isis and Tanit, all the way back to Ishtar in Sumeria, hence it is also known as “the hand of the Goddess” and it was banned in the Holy Roman Empire by Emperor Charles IV. Not content to make it with one hand, Jacinda (named for one of the breastplate materials in Revelation 9:17, of the horses that issued fire, smoke and brimstone from their mouths), makes it with both, and places one towards the crowd and the other on her OWN CHEST as if to say I am your Goddess, I am your Protector.
She has successfully managed to make the murder of 50 Muslims all about her in twhat must be the most disgusting hijacking of a tragedy by a left-wing politician to occur this century so far.
She failed, however, to wear clogs in solidarity with the victims of the Utrecht shooting by a muslim some days later, or to say anything about it. When one of the Mosque Leaders in Christchurch in the last two weeks was recorded in public blaming the Jewish business owners and the Mossad for Tarrant, she had nothing to say about it and nobody came to that imam’s house investigating him for hate speech.
Now I made it fairly clear what I think about her. What about you, the gentle reader. Will you be more charitable towards this rictus bearing harbinger of cultural suicide?

Emmanuel Macron, who has about as much to do with the real Emmanuel as I do with a … well actually it defies comparison, has been the hard man against the UK coming out as the leader (cough) least in favour of granting any A50 extensions to the UK, although finally the group after four hours of closed discussion from which May and the media were all excluded did grant an extension but a lot shorter than we asked for, at the same time telling us they want to help us if they know what we want.
Why is Macron trying to push us into an impasse cordiale at this point?
Please tick all the reasons you think apply to motivate Macron’s behaviour.

Here’s something that became topical again, commenting the initial rejection of the Lisbon Treaty – of course we all know what happened next – they were told they got that wrong and were told to vote again. In the mean time, they were told that their economy was ruined because of their vote, although of course it was about to go south because of the coing recession anyway, and they started to get scared and vote again.

The small but loyal group of supporters of this blog and its Thursday Polls might well, after last night’s performance, the night before that and no doubt coming up also in the UK Parliament be expecting me to make an EU-related poll today, but as we have had so much of this now, enough to almost drive a nation and a continental mental, i thought we could think about something else. For tose who want to think about the EU then the question I asked two weeks ago has become more relevant now than it even was then, and that poll is still open and I am watching carefully how the weight of answers is changing as we progress through this process, as indeed can you. That poll is right here.
Beyond that you can shortcut to all the existant polls here, and feel free to add your voice to any of them, as I tend to keep them open for a while in most cases.
For today, we look in fact not for the first time in my content (those who have been following the Play UK talk shows will know that this unhappy family is an inevitable topic of conversation in talk radio, and the Not The Tommy Boyd Show and James Whale show were no exceptions. James Whale in particular has been very supportive of Madeleine’s parents, Gerry and Kate McCann, pictured).
Now it emerges in today’s news that Netflix is going to release a film about Madeleine’s Disappearance called “The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann”. Gerry and Kate McCann have been critical of the film, saying that it might hiner the police investigation.
I would have thought the stronger argument would be that this tragedy is not supposed to be for the idle entertainment of the masses and the profit of a media organisation, but then really one has to wonder how many newspapers and associated advertising have already been sold on this story over the last 12 years. Gerry and Kate have been through a lot, not only through the loss of their child but also through being suspected themselves, even formally held as arguidos in the death of their child. Now I have been in a similar position as them, only thankfully for 12 minutes and not for 12 years, but even that was enough to tell you that this is not a pleasant experience, although my joy when the French police found George (who had run away, being autistic and adventurous, a dangerous pairing of traits) safe and well more than made for the evident suspicion of me by the French detective when he spotted the blood on the lintel (which happened to have been left over from George’s nosebleed the previous day – my explanation that it was his, but we thought we had managed to clean it all up was obviously not the best choice of words under the circumstances, as the detective’s “remain in my sight, please” indicated). For the record I personally believe Gerry and Kate are innocent, not because of my own experiecnes and not because it is impossible for them to have done such a deed in a moment of anger or through self medication and then covered it up through fear, but because deception specialists are really very good and they would be able to pinpoint leakage and would have got to the truth of the issue by now in such a high profile case if Kate and Gerry were not being truthful. So, despite being very naturally and by dint of being an auditor a rather unpleasantly skeptical person about human nature, I am with the McCanns, be sure of that.
I still wonder if they are right in saying that such a film will hinder the investigation. I am far from sure that the police alone, given all the cuts in manpower and the increasing reliance on technocracy which is not retrospective, is going to be enough to solve this case. I believe that, tasteless and unsavoury as this film may be, and I probably will not watch it myself, keeping the image of Medeleine and the whole story in the public eye may be exactly what it takes to wring some truth or even a confession out of a person who has managed to keep everything quiet. Or maybe, hopefully, one day a young woman with one bicoloured iris is noticed by a young neighbour who only knows about Madeleine because it was kept in the public eye. These days the police are not resourced but the ordinary public are greatly resourced. That is why I don’t think the McCanns are right to be against the film, even though I fully sympathise with their feelings about it.
What do you think?
